A clue from Daniel. John knows Daniel and Daniel knows number of years. Do we know what happened in the year 666? No. We do know that Muawiyah was preparing to attack Constantinople, the capital of a Christian empire that would last a thousand years, where they reigned with Christ. What does Gibbon know?
A Christian Empire
A reign with Christ. The Byzantine Empire was a Christian empire that lasted a thousand years when they reigned with Christ. Does it fit with the other numbers: 666, ten horns, and seven heads? The number 666 is next. Daniel is a good place to look for clues. Does he know numbers?
A Connection With Daniel
A tenth dynasty that ended the thousand year reign. The ten horns shall hate the whore, Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire, the tenth dynasty of Islam. So who is counting? Islam. That makes Constantinople the mystery Babylon the Great, the only city with all the necessary characteristics.
A Passage In Daniel
A calculation not a count. Two calendars and two solutions. 666 of the Julian Calendar is the beginning of the Islamic Calendar. 666 of the Gregorian Calendar is the Islamic attack on Constantinople. Daniel suggests ‘number’ refers to years. It’s just another place to look. So look.
A Second Beast
A beast with seven heads replaced by a beast with ten horns and a connection with Daniel. The last two beasts of Daniel are the two beasts of John. Note the seven dynasties of the Roman Empire and the ten dynasties of Islam. A fit with a thousand year Christian empire.
A Vision of Daniel
A temple is desolated. What makes a beast a beast? What do they all have in common? The temple. Babylon destroyed the first temple. Greece desecrated the second. Rome destroyed the second. Islam is preventing the third. The Dome of the Rock is the abomination of desolation spoken of by Jesus.
A Connection with Daniel
A fit with history. Both John and Daniel have a beast with “ten horns”. Constantinople, the capital of a Christian empire that lasted a thousand years, fell to the Ottomans, the tenth dynasty of Islam. Counted by Islamicart.com but no longer active.
A Common Year
A new calendar starting in 622 would be 666 of the Julian Calendar starting with 44 BC. The Hijri year is 622 and the start of the Islamic calendar. A search of Daniel shows number refers to years. John knows Daniel is the place to go for clues. Follow the numbers.
A Red Sea
A great sword to take peace from the earth. The rider is Mohammed the father of Islam that is the fourth beast of Daniel and the second beast of the Apocalypse. It took them 44 years to get to Constantinople where they were stopped. It took them 110 years to get to Tours, France where they were stopped. The history of Islam is all the evidence you need to show that Islam is not a religion of peace.
A sultan, and a perfect fit with Saladin if you know how to count caliphates, sultanates, or dynasties and can tell the difference. Islam can and they counted ten as in ten horns and they shall hate the whore. A connection between Daniel and the Apocalypse. A little horn reinforces the belief that horns are dynasties.
