The complexities of all of history are easily and vividly assembled for us, by God Himself, right here in Daniel 2.
The Rule of Four Empires & The Coming of Christ
When Jesus first explained the End of Days to His disciples He used as His central point, the coming of the worst human whoever will live. The antichrist is the greatest fiend, the most powerful, destructive, evil, wicked, and harmful human who will ever live. Jesus mentions him in Matthew 24:15 (as we will see later), then cites Daniel the prophet.
Basically then Jesus had two central truths in His longest explanation of the future, for us. First:
The Antichrist Will Be the Worst Human Ever

Think about this man with so many different names in the Bible: the man of sin, the son of perdition, the beast, the lawless one, and the Antichrist.
Of all who have ever hated good, hated God, and hated Christians, the Antichrist will be the pinnacle. If we were to take all of the worst persecutors, deceivers, and malignant terrorists and stew them until they boiled down to the essence of evil, the Antichrist is what would pour out: the man of sin, the son of perdition, and the false Christ.
When this man appears he will pulsate with the power of demons, and flow with the evil desires of Satan, so much so that even people’s money, buying, selling, and even lives will be only at his nod.
Jesus describes the most amazing event in the future when He was describing the end times, by a citation from the prophet Daniel. This brings us to Christ’s second point:
Jesus Affirms the Reliability of Daniel
