The third rising is happening,
- DanielLv 61 decade agoFavorite Answer
There's nothing that speaks of a third rising, but scripture predicts a revived Roman Empire (a second rising) that hasn't happened yet.
Below are scriptures I believe points to Rome as the captital of this coming world empire.
First of all scripture shows a world empire in the last days. Daniel only predicts four world empires before Christ sets up his millennial kingdom. Rome was the fourth kingdom and we have little choice but to conclude this last day world empire must be a revived Roman empire since no scripture predicts a fifth empire.
Daniel in chapter 7 predicted four successive world empires: lion was Babylon, bear was medo-persia, leopard was Greece, and beast was Rome.
Rev. 13:1-2 shows a reverse order, beginning with the beast then
moving backwards it lists leopard, bear, lion. Since we know from
history that beast represented Rome in this grouping of empires this
is one of several passages that identify Rome as the seat of the
beast. There are other passages.
Rev. 17:8 states, "the beast that thou sawest was, and is not, and
shall ascend out of the bottomless pit. . . ." The beast
(Rome) "was." This is the Roman Empire of old. The "is not"
represents Rome's demise when it ceased to exist. The "shall ascend
out of the bottomless pit" shows a revived Roman Empire, and since
the bottomless pit is the dwelling place of Satan, this shows the
devil is the source of Rome's revival.
I think a parallel passage is found in Rev. 13:3 where it says the
beast's deadly wound is healed. The immediate context of the two
previous verses mentions the four beasts: beast, leopard, bear, and
lion which represent the four world empires. So, when the next verse
speaks of the beast's deadly wound being healed the context is world
empires, and I think it is a reference to the Roman empire that died
out coming back to life.
Many think it is a person in mind here, but since the previous verse 1s speaking about empires, this must be referring to the empire dying and coming back.
Rev. 13:1 says this beast has seven heads and ten horns. Comparing
Rev. 17:9 and 18 it identifies the seven heads. V.9 states, "the
seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth." V.18
states, "and that woman which thou sawest is that great city which
reigns over the kings of the earth."
We learn several things from this. The woman is the city that reigns
over the world. And this woman (city) is situated on seven
mountains. I believe this is the seven hills of Rome. One
commentary I read in said John's first century audience would
automatically understand this to be a reference to Rome, the city
built on seven hills.
Rev. 17:10 states, "and there are seven kings: five are fallen, and
one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must
continue a short space." When John wrote this he was living during
the reign of the 6th Roman Emperor. That is the "one is." The "five
are fallen" were the previous five Roman emperors. And "the other is
not yet come" points to a future emperor, who like the others must
also be Roman.
The date of the book of Revelation is very iffy. They range from Nero to Domitian. I regard this as internal evidence in the book of Revelation that Nero, the 6th Roman king, was the emperor when John wrote Revelation.
Rev. 17:12 states, "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."
Daniel ties these 10 horns to the fourth beast which no one disputes
is Rome. Daniel 7:17 states, "these great beasts which are
four. . . ." Then vv.19-20 states, "then I would know the truth of
the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others. . . . And
of the ten horns that were in his head. . . ."
Again, earlier in this same chapter Daniel mentions four beasts:
lion, bear, leopard, and beast that are well established in history
to represent Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. This fourth
beast (Rome) is the one with "ten horns," exactly as we see assisting
the beast in Rev. 17:12. It is no accident we find "beast" in
Revelation, the exact term in Daniel that represents the Roman empire.
I see the 10 nations that assist the beast as coming from the EU.
There is a movement within the EU to elect a strong president to
multi-year terms that only comes from a select group of the larger EU
nations. The reasoning is that smaller nations lack the resources to
handle the duties of this EU leadership. 6 of those favoring this
are France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Italy, and Great Britain. This
may be six of the 10.
