Introduction


The book of Daniel is the foundation of Biblical prophecy. Misinterpret it, and you will be unable to connect that prophecy to world events, men, or empires of the past, present or future. It’s a map of history, beginning with the Jews taken into Babylonian captivity, and finishing with the return of the Messiah – Jesus Christ to rule over this world.

But in the final chapter we are told its meaning has been closed and sealed until the time of the end. We can see looking back at the attempts of Bible scholars from centuries past, that they had been unable to break that seal. Their attempts to interpret events prophesied by Daniel failed because they failed to realise that “the time of the end” would not begin until Daniel’s people had been gathered from the four corners of the earth; back to their Promised Land, ready to keep their final appointment with God. And Israel was once again a sovereign nation in control of its capital city – Jerusalem.

The book is made up of multiple layers of historical facts and symbolism; that inform the reader of the origin and future of a man students of scripture know as the Antichrist, and his world empire. This man, who shall arise at a certain point in history; empowered by God’s enemy – Satan, will attempt to usurp the throne of Jesus Christ; as ruler of this world.

It is therefore somewhat ironic that another cause of those centuries of misunderstanding is something as simple as the incorrect application of a present tense interpretation to a phrase that is future tense.

I thank God for that day, as I once again sat down to read chapter seven; wearing my usual regulation eschatology reading spectacles. When he wiped the mist of old scholastic dogma from them, and caused me to take notice of the fact that the phrase – “shall arise” – doesn’t mean already exists. And to realise the implications of that fact.

Mark’s gospel records the Sadducees, (who didn’t believe in the resurrection) questioning Jesus. He told them they were in error because they did not know the scriptures. He said, “haven’t you read how God said to Moses, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?” In using the present tense – “I am” – God was indicating that those men were still alive.

Getting, or not getting the message can often hinge on the proper understanding of a single word or phrase.

How many of us were taught at school that Neanderthals were the missing link between humans and our ape ancestors? How many of us read textbooks that claimed conclusive evidence of mankind’s ape origin was provided by the discovery of Piltdown Man? How many of us later learned that Piltdown Man was in fact a hoax, created from the jawbone of an orangutan combined with a modern human skull? How many of us heard the more recent news, that Neanderthals were in fact a humanoid species that coexisted with mankind, and were at least as intelligent as us? Or that a small percentage of humans are believed by scientists to carry their genes?

In this book, I will present evidence that the Nephilim, recorded in scripture as being offspring of angels and human women, integrated with a small section of mankind. I will argue that the reason scripture refers to the Antichrist as a beast; is because he is descended from these Nephilim hybrids. You may find my argument so extraordinary as to seem impossible. You may prefer to believe what you were taught at school.

    Hi Phil,

    Have just finished your book. A very intriquing book. Much material to carefully consider. I too found the “who shall arise” statement in Dan 7:17 difficult to settle in my own mind when this statement was used to include a king which had already come to pass.

    On a similar theme, I’m having difficulty reconciling your explanation of the statement in Rev 17:10

    “they are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come,”

    When I read this verse, I interpret it as describing the succession of kings at the time of John writing this. Meaning 5 have fallen before John wrote this, one was at the time of the writing, and one is yet to come.

    In your explanation, you state that this describes the 7 kings of the Holy Roman Empire which did not yet exist at the time of the writing.

    Please advise.

    • Phil Mayo says :

      Hi Ted,

      I think the problem is with that long standing interpretation that says those kings are kingdoms that began with Egypt, then Assyria, then Babylon, and so on. They are not. They are not successive kingdoms at all, they are kings of the same kingdom, and Rev 17:10 begins during the days of the sixth king of that kingdom – The Holy Roman Empire. Just like Daniel, John isn’t seeing something that happened during, or before his lifetime. Rev 4:1 confirms this when John is told “I will show you things which must be hereafter.”

      • Ted says :

        Okay, I took a bit of time to re-read chapter seven of your book. I still don’t quite understand why John is referencing a period during the early 1700’s here (the “one is” king) as you describe. Is it to identify the period that the “mortal wound” wound takes place?

      • Phil Mayo says :

        Hi Ted,

        It’s to identify the line of kings of which the Antichrist is the last.

  2. Harlan Legare says :

    Bit by Bit: You state in your book that “Those who hold the view that the lion with eagle’s wings represents Babylon, can’t point to any historical or archaeological proof” in an attempt to prove that Daniel’s dream of the four beasts that arise from the sea in chapter 7 is not a parallel vision of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of a great image of many metals of chapter 2.

    All the proof that is needed is the Bible. Daniel’s dream begins: 1In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream … 3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. 4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. The interpretation begins: 17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. The first king that had eagle’s wings that were plucked and that was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it is described in considerable in Daniel 4:

    4 I Nebuchadnezzar was at rest in mine house, and flourishing in my palace: 5 I saw a dream which made me afraid… 16 let his heart be changed from man’s, and let a beast’s heart be given unto him.
    19 Then Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar … said, My lord… 20 The tree that thou sawest.. 22 it is thou, O king…let his portion be with the beasts of the field… 24 this is the interpretation, O king… they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field… till thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will… 30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty? 31 While the word was in the king’s mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee. 32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will. 33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers, and his nails like birds’ claws.
    34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me… 36 At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me… and I was established in my kingdom.

    To be more concise:

    The first king that “had eagle’s wings” that “were plucked” – it was said of Nebuchadnezzar that “his hairs were grown like eagles’ feathers.”

    The first king “was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.” Nebuchadnezzar said, “mine understanding returned unto me… At the same time my reason returned unto me; and for the glory of my kingdom, mine honour and brightness returned unto me

    • Phil Mayo says :

      Hi Harlan,

      your argument ignores the fact that the angel told Daniel in verse 17 that they are four kings which shall arise out of the earth. Now I don’t intend to repeat myself regarding the future tense of that phrase. If you think it allows you to assume he is talking about Nebuchadnezzar, who was long since dead by the time the angel spoke those words, there is no longer any common logical ground for debate.

      • Harlan Legare says :

        The problem is with semantics, translating from the original text to English.

        Here is Young’s Literal Translation of the original Hebrew/Aramaic (source: biblegateway.com)

        Daniel 7:2, 3
        Answered hath Daniel and said, `I was seeing in my vision by night, and lo, the four winds of the heavens are coming forth to the great sea; and four great beasts are coming up from the sea, diverse one from another.

        Daniel 7:17
        `These great beasts, that [are] four, [are] four kings, they rise up from the earth;

        “Are coming forth … are coming up” allows the preexistence of Nebuchadnezzar as does “they rise up from the earth.”

      • Phil Mayo says :

        Hi Harlan,

        Come on mate! “Are coming forth … are coming up”. If you were Gabriel, are they the words you would use to describe the Babylonian empire that had seen its greatest days, and was soon to be overthrown by the Medo-Persian empire?

  3. Harlan Legare says :

    You state:

    “the fact that the angel told Daniel in verse 17 that they are four kings which shall arise out of the earth. Now I don’t intend to repeat myself regarding the future tense of that phrase.”

    Your entire work is based on a foundation of two words in verse 17 – “shall arise”

    What were the words of Gabriel in verse 17?

    “they rise up from the earth”

    What is the specific tense of these words of Gabriel?

    • Phil Mayo says :

      Hi Harlan.

      No! My work is based on a combination of facts, grammatical, historical, and plain common sense. The grammatical meaning of Gabriel’s statement in verse 17 is in the future tense. Babylon was not rising up from the earth. Even if you use that dodgy interpretation to suit your argument, it still doesn’t work because Babylon had long since done it’s rising, and was soon to fall. Lastly, you forgot the fact that I point out that God uses two totally different beasts to depict Medo-Persia and Greece in the chapter 8 vision that Gabriel links together with this one.

      • Harlan Legare says :

        “God uses two totally different beasts to depict Medo-Persia and Greece in the chapter 8 vision that Gabriel links together with this one.”

        Do you know why?

      • Phil Mayo says :

        Well, I would say that’s because they are two totally different kingdoms.

  4. Suzanne says :

    I read “Daniel Seal Broken: Nephilim Integration” on Rapture Ready and I have a question. Do hybrids (part human/part fallen angel) have souls and can they be saved? If there are some alive today who carry nephilim DNA, can they be considered human and able to receive Jesus as personal savior?

    • Phil Mayo says :

      That’s a good question Suzanne. I have to be honest and say that at this point in time I don’t know the answer. But I do know we serve a just and righteous God who won’t turn away anyone who genuinely comes to him seeking forgiveness for their sins.

  5. Molly says :

    Hi Phil,
    I have a question about the nephilim hybrids. Have they or can they be female? We know that angels can only be male but when they reproduce with human women could they have female children? Also a question or rather concern, can a Christian today (like myself) have some of this hybrid DNA and still be saved?

    • Phil Mayo says :

      Hi Molly,
      regarding your question about the production of female offspring. I can only say what you probably already know. That is, none are mentioned in the Bible. There are non-biblical writings that mention a half woman/half serpent that I deal with in my book.
      Regarding your being saved. Don’t let it be of the slightest concern to yourself. If you were not saved you wouldn’t even bother to ask the question.

  6. Gene Johnson says :

    I think this is a very accurate timeline I came across of events that are all going to come to pass very , very soon. I wanted to post it here for the consideration of others…..

    If you follow the Biblical narrative in Daniel, especially Chapters 11 and 12- you will see the bad guys are going to run into a little problem in dealing with Iran. They will not take it. Damascus (Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49:23)will be destroyed and Syria taken by December (Mathew 24:20- the antichrist (the assyrian, BO, Isaiah 10 5-27) will come to power as the world’s savior (Isaiah 10: 5-27 – Revelation 6- seal 1) after this catastrophe with Damascus by a deception using technology not available to the public to convince people he is the “chosen one” (2 Thess 2:9) The rapture will occur at the same time.

    The world will then be split into 10 regions (the N.W.O, but it will be divided against itself and won’t last long at all) The antichrist will take control of 3 of the 10 regions (Daniel 7:8), including the Western countries and middle east (Daniel 8:24). They will then go after Iran, but Russia and China will stand in their way (Daniel 11:44)……WWIII will ensue (Seal 2 Rev). Then economic collapse (Seal 3) . Then a global pandemic (Seal 4). 6 months of hell in western countries (David Wilkerson vision)….. Then a restoration under total western civilian lockdown. Then martyrs for Jesus Christ (Seal 5). Then those that have turned Jesus Christ saved during this hellish time (Seal 6) Then the return of Jesus Christ .

    If this is correct, we are right at the very edge.

    All Glory be to God

  7. Kay says :

    Well it’s interesting…lion with wings torn off, given heart of a man–say Great Britain – was once known as ‘the sick MAN of Europe”. It had two wings flying over the world (sun never set on the British empire) but those were torn off, it stood up like a man–sick man as stated before, it became just a man, no longer a huge kingdom…Next the bear – Russia, a great kingdom but certainly not a world-wide one but Bible doesn’t say it has to be ‘world ruler’, just ‘kingdoms that arise from the earth– 3 ribs in its mouth-ribs surround the heart of the beast- first it was Russia, then USSR, then back to Russia, its ‘heart’…it’s on its side, not fully in charge of anything–“get up eat your fill of flesh’ – boy did they in WWII, in communism, in the Gulags, purges & pograms… (why God ordered that or allowed that is of course a mystery, I don’t question that part, He said it so there was a reason.)…ok, then the leopard with 4 wings (2 x the wings of Great Britain out of which America came of course) – 4 heads and given authority to rule–4 being the number of the earth – United States was given authority to rule the world for a while…we still do kinda, we are on the decline though…next horrible 4th beast (unlike the others, iron teeth, iron rep’d Rome before; then another clue ‘bronze claws’ maybe a clue from from the statue, iron & bronze so Greece is in there somewhere) – anyway, European Union & UN & end-times so on and so forth, the angel goes to great lengths to explain the 4th beast…10 kings, 3 defeated, one rises, so on and so forth…parenthentical statement in there that the previous kingdoms were ‘stripped of their authority’ but allowed to live’–so, Great Britain, Russia, & U.S. don’t have authority anymore, but are allowed to continue on..I think Mayo makes a good point about ‘kingdoms that will arise from the earth as in the FUTURE, if Greece Babylon & Rome already existed, these 4 are way future, & way different, from Daniel’s time…. So that’s my 2 cents for what it’s worth & I appreciate Mayo making the point. I haven’t read the website at all yet just the article so if I am repeating something you said already Mayo my apologies all attribution to you but honestly these are my own thoughts with just the exception of starting with Great Britain as you hinted the lion w/wings torn off might be. Thanks mate! Carry on.

  8. Kay says :

    I thought about it, and the Bear could have been Germany/Holocaust (Berlin logo is the bear), the ribs are like Ezekiel’s dead bones; “eat your fill of flesh’ need I say more about the Holocaust; the Third Reich (Empire) is a ‘kingdom’ that arose from the earth…ok, I just don’t know if Germany survived that, so to speak, to continue on as one of the ‘three stripped of power but allowed to live’- also, these three–in my opinion, GB, USA, either Russia or Germany–may be the 3 that antichrist “subdues” – correlation to ‘stripped of power’–the remaining 7 give over to him (chinese, asian, moslem, etc. whatever other kingdoms) – antichrist is an 8th king, he is ‘of the 7 and is going to his destruction’ GB, USA, and Russia and/or germany then would not be the ‘source kingdom’ of the antichrist….just some additional thoughts. I have seen no comments for days so I don’t know if I am so ‘off-base’ you guys are ignoring me; or what, sorry about that but I thought the Mayo theory re: those kingdoms being closer in time to the end, starting with GB, rather than starting with Babylon etc.etc., was really fascinating, and just thought I would run with it myself for a bit…

    • Phil Mayo says :

      Hi Kay.

      Thanks for your comments. I am guessing from what you say, that you haven’t read my book. I encourage you to read it. You will see that I have stated what I believe Daniel’s beasts symbolize, and I have undepinned my statements with historical facts.

  9. Believer says :

    When I was a boy, I remember a fire and brimstone preacher coming to my school and giving a speech on the tribulation. It was the first time I heard the word muslim or islam and really had no idea the significance of what he was saying, as back in the 80’s it seemed like forever in the future. I do specifically remember him telling us though that the antichrist WOULD be muslim. His reason for this was simple. The antichrist is going to come from the group of people who destroyed the temple. The Bible is very clear about this, and everyone knows it was the Roman Army which did this. But what most people fail to realize is the particular company which destroyed the temple was full of Assyrian conscripts! Assyrians are today’s muslims! It only makes sense. True Christians will be gone, raptured away. The billion Catholics will believe and follow the pope, who will act as the false prophet. Muslims the world over will think the 12th Iman has arrived on scene in order to set up world wide islam rule, and follow the antichrist as their leader. All other religions will covert or repent and be beheaded.

    • Phil Mayo says :

      Hi Believer,

      The Roman army under the command of a Roman by the name of Titus destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple. As I have stated before, to claim the prophecy refers to Assyrian conscripts is like saying the Nepalese were responsible for the war in Iraq because the Gurkha regiment did a tour of duty there.

    • Ted says :

      Just as an aside here. From what I’ve read and experienced, the Assyrians of today are predominately Christian. And from what I’ve read, they were among the first ethnic groups to convert to Christianity. I’ve worked alongside an Assyrian painting crew in many homes I’ve worked in. They and their families emigrated from Northern Iraq primarily due to persecution from Muslims.

  10. Gordon A. Stamper says :

    Haven’t read the e-book but I know the Scriptures and the beast is nothing more than a man, a man of sin, and the number of a man, “His number is 666.” Revelation 13:18
