The Cyber Hymnal Hood, The four empires of Daniel 2 and 7 were those that had dominion over Israel, concurrent with or just after the time of Daniel and Ezekiel.
Empires outside of the region are of no concern only because they had no influence on Israel. Indeed, it is quite true that the list of Empires in Revelation 17 includes a list of seven empires, plus the eighth, the Antichrist who is really just one of the seven which are those that have in the past or in the future directly dominated of will dominate the Jews. As a nation, the Ottoman Empire had no direct influence.
Even more should this principle hold true for the timeframe that Jesus was on the earth. If we dismiss Rome, the empire ruling over Judea when Jesus lived there, and replaced it with an empire that had no influence over the Jewish nation when it dominated the region, of what relevance is that to Bible prophecy?
Virtually none. We read of these seven eight empires in the book of Revelation. This passage is more of the most misinterpreted in the Bible—and one of the most important in eschatology:.
And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven Christ For The Whole Wide World five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. Revelation This then leaves another empire yet to arise, i. And the eighth is Antichrist. Yet John tells us the Antichrist is really one of the seven or composed in part from all seven.
If true, the question is why Daniel would leave Rome out. After all, he could have had five empires instead of four. But he only talked about four. From my perspective, the response from IAT seems somewhat contrived. We know that Rome beheaded its enemies as well as crucifying them — crucifixion being the cruelest form of death as it lasts for days — especially compared to beheading which lasts but a few seconds.
Being a citizen of Rome, Paul was beheaded perhaps along with dozens of the Praetorian Guard whom he converted to the faith while in the ancient Roman Mamertine Prison. Arguing who is crueler between ancient Rome and current-day jihadists, amounts to a debate that neither deserve to win.
Methinks it all depends on whether the one who judges personally experienced both forms of death in order to make a fair comparison. It is true that in land area, Christ For The Whole Wide World Ottoman Empire exceeded the empire of the 1 Medes and Persians, 2 the Greek Empire of Alexander and his four successors, and 2 the Roman Empire. And the effects of the latter two, in many respects, has held sway globally more than any of the other empires including the Ottoman.
Here I am speaking in terms of architectures, laws, and customs as standards for almost the entire world, not Christ For The Whole Wide World Western Europe and the United States. Joel Richardson, author, The Islamic Antichrist. Its story actually began two hundred years earlier while the group only a small tribe in the Asian steppes.
After Osman ascended to power, he would soon dominate Anatolia. Under his son, the Empire would extend its reign into the Balkans and the Eastern Mediterranean. The Ottomans advanced toward Europe but were pushed back in at the Battle of Varna. Inthe Ottomans finally captured Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire, and changed its name to Istanbul.
As has been taught, the wealth of Byzantium stimulated the Renaissance and would eventually lead to great advances in many of the sciences. It was during this time when Columbus sought to prove a Western route to India, no doubt in part to avoid the Ottomans he would have to pass by in South Africa.
Beginning inhowever, the Empire began to stagnate and fell behind in technology to the Europeans. The failed Battle for Vienna in marked another key date in the decline of the Ottoman Empire as Europe was spared from Islamic control. Of particular note, in the Ottoman Empire conquered Jerusalem. The Ottomans were dispossessed of it in — years later — with Major Allenby took Jerusalem for the British.
The abolition of the Ottoman sultanate occurred on 17 November By then, the modern Turkish leadership was hated by the Arabs, had murdered 1. The caliphate was officially declared ended on 3 March Until ISIS declared itself a caliphate in from the territories of Syria and Iraq, few Muslims recognized any caliphate for 90 years. In summary, Ottoman Empire grew into a powerful force dominating the Middle East, Christ For The Whole Wide World Balkans, Northern Africa, the tip of Africa, and selected other territories for several centuries.
It was not, however, by any means uniformly Islamic. By the nineteenth century, Christians were thriving within the empire, creating resentment among their fellow Islamic citizens. Long before this time, certainly by the time of the Crimean Warthe Ottoman Empire struggled to remain in control of its territories.
