And this man (Jesus Christ) shall be the peace, when the ASSYRIAN shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the ASSYRIAN, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders. Micah 5:5-6.
The antichrist figure opposes God in the end-times and is destroyed by the brightness of the Lord’s second coming. This apocalyptic figure has many names. The Apostle John calls him the beast that rises from the sea while the Prophet Isaiah and the Prophet Micah calls the Antichrist the “ASSYRIAN.”
In the English Bible translation of the Old Testament, this figure is known as “Asshur,” which is a name usually translated as “the Assyrian“.
Bible scholars who have concluded that this Assyrian is the Antichrist: The earliest full-length commentary of the book of Revelation that remains in existence today was written by a Slovenian bishop by the name of Victorinus Poetovionensis around the year 260 AD. In his commentary Victorinus quotes this passage from Micah and then states very bluntly: “Assur, that is, Antichrist. Bible scholar Chuck Missler arrives at this very same conclusion in his study, “Antichrist: An Alternate Ending.” Other Bible scholars who have recently commented on the “Assyrian” Antichrist include Walid Shoebat, Joseph Chambers, and David Busch.
Some Bible verses on the “THE ASSYRIAN ANTICHRIST”.
Isaiah 10:5 O Assyrian, the rod of mine anger, and the staff in their hand is mine indignation.
12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, that when the Lord hath performed his whole work upon mount Zion and on Jerusalem, I will punish the fruit of the stout heart of the king of Assyria, and the glory of his high looks.
24 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of hosts, O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the ASSYRIAN: he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt.
Isaiah 30:27-33. 27 Behold, the name of the Lord cometh from far, burning with his anger, and the burden thereof is heavy: his lips are full of indignation, and his tongue as a devouring fire: 28 And his breath, as an overflowing stream, shall reach to the midst of the neck, to sift the nations with the sieve of vanity: and there shall be a bridle in the jaws of the people, causing them to err. 29 Ye shall have a song, as in the night when a holy solemnity is kept; and gladness of heart, as when one goeth with a pipe to come into the mountain of the Lord, to the mighty One of Israel.
30 And the Lord shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones. 31 For through the voice of the Lord shall the ASSYRIAN be beaten down, which smote with a rod. 32 And in every place where the grounded staff shall pass, which the Lord shall lay upon him, it shall be with tabrets and harps: and in battles of shaking will he fight with it. 33 For Tophet is ordained of old; yea, for the king it is prepared; he hath made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the Lord, like a stream of brimstone, doth kindle it.
