Antichrist Identified From 666 and Revelation 13?

The Bible describes a future one world government leader ruling for the last 42 months of these End Times. He should be alive today. Does Revelation 13’s clues including 666 identify him as Prince Charles of Wales? Find out in this article written by Monte Judah.

Note from Tim: This article written by Monte Judah is unique in its literal approach to this mystery everyone wants to know. Unfortunately, most people use human reasoning to pick the Antichrist. They expect someone popular, likable, and charismatic. However, we need to understand and use the Biblical qualifications to identify the AC found in Revelation 13.

Also we must keep in mind, whoever we find from this, if they seem not to fit today, this matters not. Revelation 13 tells us that the AC will die and be resurrected. 2Th 2:4 tells us he will even claim to be God in the Third Temple. Now, anyone who suddenly can do miracles like a god after dying is going to be considered a new person—not the person that body used to hold with his old reputations. They will have a clean slate. Keep this in mind as you consider Monte's candidate...which is only a candidate, not a dogmatic statement of fact. - Tim

The Prince Who Is To Come

He was born in 1948, the same year that Israel became a modern nation. He is a prince of the ancient people who came and destroyed the temple in Jerusalem — the Romans. His lineage chart traces to every great world leader including King David; he is referred to as the "son of David." His name can be calculated to the numerical value of 666 by the ancient Hebrew method in both English and Hebrew. His calling card visually presents the composite beast made from the body of a leopard, the feet of a bear, and the mouth of a lion. His power, throne, and great authority have been given to him by a red dragon. He wants to lead the European Union (the ancient Roman Empire) and have dominion over all nations. His name is Prince Charles of Wales. He is the leading candidate to be the prophesied antichrist.

When Satan made his second temptation offer to Messiah Yeshua, he offered the world in all its glory.

And he [the devil] led Him [Yeshua] up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, "I will give You all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore if You worship before me, it shall all be Yours." LUK 4:5-7

Yeshua turned down the offer of the devil to worship him as God. However, someone else is prophesied to accept the devil's offer. He is called the antichrist (antichrist). Yeshua called him the son of perdition (destruction). He will come not to do the will of God but of himself. He will not have power of his own, but he will have influence and others will give their power to him. The Scriptures say that all the leaders of the world will commit adultery (get in bed) with him. He will be the false shepherd leading the world to a three and half year time period known as the Great Tribulation.

Bible students and prophecy speakers have all wanted to know who he is. The antichrist is the second most prominent person prophesied to come after the Messiah Himself. Identifying the antichrist, seeing him in your lifetime means two great things: the end of the age Great Tribulation (the last three and one half years) is soon coming, and the Messiah is coming right after to usher in His Kingdom. The Scriptures say that the antichrist will come to power and rule for 42 months. It also says that his kingdom will be destroyed by the coming of the Messiah. Identifying the antichrist is one of the most intriguing puzzles in end time Bible prophecy.

Some prophecy enthusiasts say it can't be done; i.e., no one can identify the antichrist. Some say that we will be raptured before he emerges. Others tag every public leader in the world as him. Remember when Henry Kissinger was said to be the antichrist because of his statement "Peace is at hand" at the end of the Vietnam war. If you made the letter AA" equal six and then added six to each succeeding letter (B equals 12, C equals 18, etc.), then "Kissinger" equaled 666.

Or, how about Ronald Wilson Reagan (each name has six letters each). Or how about William Jefferson Clinton, whose transliterated name in Hebrew equaled 666 by the gematria. And then there was Bob Dole, his crippled right arm from a war injury seemed to match the antichrist prophecy of a withered right arm.

There have been a host of other candidates for antichrist: President George Bush, the Pope, Russian leaders, the Secretary General of the UN, the list goes on and on. In prior generations, everyone knew that Hitler was it. So if someone says, "Hey, did you know Prince Charles of Wales is the antichrist,"  why should anyone give serious attention to them?

Let's be honest. If you go to another believer (with any prophecy interest) and suggest that Prince Charles is the antichrist, then he will accept your idea right along with UFO alien abductions, one world conspiracy warnings of the Illuminati, a hot internet rumor about some girl who dated a terrorist just before the attack, investing in gold coins, long-term storage of wheat in buckets, and the cow jumping over the moon. If the person you speak with has no interest whatsoever in end time prophecy, your suggestion of Prince Charles as the antichrist will confirm his worst suspicions of you being just plain "nuts." He will end the conversation with a cock-eyed look and the words, "Oh really. I need to go now."  Further, saying Prince Charles IS the antichrist is outright slander and one of the most despicable things you can say of any public figure.

But aren't you saying that Prince Charles of Wales is the antichrist in this article? No. I'm saying that he fits more identifying prophecies about the antichrist than any other person in history. When and if Prince Charles receives the prophesied 42 months to rule, then we can proclaim it to everyone. All doubt will have been removed. By the way, that's the reason for this article. It appears that the European Union is contemplating some changes in their executive leadership and Prince Charles just might make a very interesting move into its leadership. Of course, there are some other prophecies that need to be met as well, but it is not inconceivable for all of these events to transpire soon. Before we examine what might be, let's examine what is already known about Prince Charles and review some of the identifying prophecies of the antichrist.

The Number of His Name

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. REV 13:18

This is one of the most fascinating and intriguing verses in all prophetic Scripture. This verse has caused more Bible teachers and students to chase their tails than any other verse. How do you calculate the number? Obviously, each letter must have a numerical value, but what value is correct for each letter?

The answer to these questions comes from an understanding of the ancient classic languages of Hebrew and Greek. As you may recall, the numbers we use today are Arabic or Roman numerals. Like Hebrew and Greek, English has no numerals of their own. In ancient times, before there were Arabic and Roman numerals, a simple decimal system was used for each letter. That is, the first ten letters were given the value of one through ten in ascending order. The next letter, however, was not an eleven, but instead, twenty. Thereafter, each letter was ten more (20, 30, 40, etc). At one hundred, the letter incremented by 100's, (200, 300, 400, etc). Both Hebrew and Greek contain 22 letters. So, the greatest value of any letter (Tav in Hebrew, Omega in Greek) was 400. The ancients simply used letters in place of numbers to indicate numerical values.

Archaeology has found, for example, where a man etched a secret message in stone by saying, "I love the girl whose name equals 545."  It is a very simple system and can easily be adapted to English as well.

When John wrote his prophecy giving the value of 666 to the name of the beast (antichrist), the ancients had no difficulty understanding the intent. This would be a confirmation of a particular name and would help in the identification process. The key word calculate also adds to the mystery as it is more technical than the simpler word "count." The word "number" in the Greek is "arithmos."  The origins of the word "arithmetic." To sum it up (excuse the pun), this verse of Scripture emphasizes that wisdom and understanding must be employed to draw a proper conclusion. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding...

In 1982, I purchased my first personal desktop computer. It was a giant calculator. Since I was Hebrew, I also knew how the letters represented certain values. I was also a writer and aware of the origins of our English letters and language out of the ancient languages. For example, the first Hebrew letter is an aleph, Greek is alpha, and English is just plain "A"  The English alphabet originates from Greek (alpha beta) and the Hebrew (aleph bet). I was curious as to whether the gematria (numerical values for each letter) would yield any interesting results.

The End In 2026? It's Now Possible

Since learning in 2001 that Yeshua must return in a Sabbath year, I've had to rule out three Sabbath year cycle windows for the final 7 years (2003-2009, 2010-2016, 2017-2023). With the next window (2024-2030) less than 7 years away, I'm ready to share why I believe, based on the real end time sign of Mt 24:14, that this can be the one. If it is, the "birth pains" (WW3 + Wormwood, Lk 21:10-11) would hit near its middle in 2026 with Yeshua returning in 2030. Find out what's changed to convince me about 2026 and what you can do about it...

With the help of a friend more adept in computer programming, we wrote a computer program that would calculate the numerical value (gematria) for English. I limited the system only to the first 22 letters as the ancients had done (Hebrew and Greek only have 22 letters). Once the program was written, I was able to type in all the names for all world figures past and present, calculating the gematria for each with computer accuracy. I had no expectation whatsoever for anyone when I started entering names. I already knew Kissinger wasn't  the antichrist.

Then it happened. I entered the name "Prince Charles of Wales". The value displayed was 666. Have you ever heard of an experience called, "tunnel vision."  It is a real thing. My mind focused so hard that my vision contracted to an area limited to the numbers themselves. I thought I was passing out. No matter how many times I entered the name, the calculation was the same. Then it hit me. He is a Prince just as the Scripture says.

Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing, and the people of the prince who is to come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. And its end will come with a flood; even to the end there will be war; desolations are determined. DAN 9:26

The prince who is to come must be of Roman origin. It was the Romans who came and destroyed the temple and Jerusalem. The antichrist must come from the fourth great beast described by Daniel — the Romans. Daniel later describes how the prince comes to power.

And in his place a despicable person will arise, on whom the honor of kingship has not been conferred, but he will come in a time of tranquility and seize the kingdom by intrigue. DAN 11:21

Prince Charles is a prince of the people who came and destroyed the temple and Jerusalem. The honor of kingship has not been conferred upon him and his name equals 666 in English (the common language of our world) using the ancient gematria method.

But that's not good enough for me, I'm Hebrew. I need to see his name in Hebrew calculated to the gematria. For that I had to go to Israel and find an authoritative source for translating his name into Hebrew. I ended up following how the Israeli press writes his name in the Hebrew newspapers. "Nasich Charles Me Wales" is the name as pronounced in Hebrew. Refer to the chart shown here and you can compare the English and Hebrew names with the corresponding calculations. The statistical odds are astonishing. The name "Prince Charles of Wales" in the modern accepted form of Hebrew calculates to 666 as well.

Let me remind you of a childhood story that will illustrate how astonishing this fact is. Remember, the story of Robin Hood and the archery contest? First, an arrow is shot at a great distance striking the bulls-eye on the target. This is what the first calculation of Prince Charles to the English adaptation of the ancient gematria. Next, Robin Hood shot his arrow splitting the first arrow into the bulls-eye. This is the second calculation of Prince Charles translated into Hebrew and then calculated to the same value.

You won't have any name of another public figure in the world whose name equals 666 in English or Hebrew. Nor, can you find another name of anyone in the world whose English name equals one value, translate it then into Hebrew and calculate to the same value as before the translation. I think this one fact about Prince Charles makes him worthy of much greater observation.

Consider this also. Charles means "man" or "manly." Revelation 13:18 says that the number 666 is that of a "man." I could substitute the name Charles for the word "man" and it would mean the same.

Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a [Charles]; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. REV 13:18

His Calling Card

And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. REV 13:1-2

Symbols and symbolic language frighten most readers of Bible prophecy. Who knows what the symbols mean? From an interpretative standpoint, the fear is that anything can fit any symbol by anyone with enough effort. But for most, the real mistake works like this. If the symbol seems good; it must be about us. If it seems bad; it must be about our enemies. Mutant creatures with "ten horns and seven heads" and a "beast" made of different body parts must be bad, right? So, most folks lay a heavy value judgment on it and begin adapting it to their preconceptions.

The writer of the Revelation says he saw something. Most prophecy teachers claim that this is symbolic and want to offer their preferred meanings to the symbols. What if they are wrong and it is not symbolic at all? What if it is something actually seen and it has been there in front of us for years? What if it is something viewed as honorable in our world and just a common thing?

When you meet a prominent or important person, you will receive their card.It is called a business card. It has the correct spelling of the person's name, their position and company name, along with address, phone number, e-mail address, and fax number. This is the common way you meet a person. However, when you meet Prince Charles of Wales, his business card is full of symbols. It is called his coat-of-arms. This set of symbols is reserved strictly for him and is controlled by the college of heraldry. It is his ancient calling card.

The coat-of-arms for Prince Charles is full of history and great meaning. It is the ancient way of identifying the royal families originating from the Holy Roman Empire. Refer to the diagram showing the coat-of-arms of Prince Charles.

I don't have sufficient space to explain all the meanings in his coat-of-arms, but I do want you to take note of the "heraldic beast" and the "dragon"
in it. The beast is a composite creature depicting the past: the body is that of a leopard, the feet are from a bear, and the head (mouth) is that of a lion. The past emperors of the Roman empire were from France (leopard), Germany (bear), and England (lion). This is the definition of the Heraldic Beast from the college
of heraldry and its has existed for the past 500 years. It also matches the exact description as seen by the Apostle John in the book of Revelation.

The dragon comes from the flag of Wales. Prince Charles of Wales is more than just a name. It is the title of the heir  apparent — the next in line for kingship. The red dragon dates back to the ancient Romans. Britannia was the head of the western Roman Empire and the symbol of Roman antiquity was a red dragon. It
is also the symbol that was seen by John to give the beast his power, throne, and great authority. The day that Prince Charles received his title as the Prince of Wales and his named officially changed to Prince Charles of Wales, he was surrounded by banners of this red dragon at a castle in Wales. This is why his coat-of-arms depicts the symbol in a supporting role. There is much more that could be said but time and space prohibit it further. Should you wish to delve more into his other symbols, I recommend the book, The Antichrist and a Cup of Tea, by Tim Cohen. Lion and Lamb Ministries offers this book. What you will discover is that every symbol in the coat-of-arms lines up with the Scripture. Is it an incredible coincidence or did John see and warn us?

Before we leave all these symbols lets address the kingdom symbolized by the ten horns and seven heads. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. First, let's let the Bible explain the meaning of the ten horns and seven heads.

Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. And the beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction. And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. These have one purpose and they give their power and authority to the beast. REV 17:9-13

Just like Revelation 13:18, these prophecies require some wisdom to properly understand. First, let's clear up the obvious. The seven mountains are a reference
to Rome. The kingdom of the beast (antichrist) will originate from Rome — the ancient Holy Roman Empire. The woman is a reference to the false bride of the Messiah (the false church). Everyone is aware that the Christian (Catholic) church is headquartered in Rome. I know, I know, you are all thinking that it doesn't represent us good Christians (us protestant types). However, Protestant means protesting Catholic. So, it is the headquarters of the Christian church. It also is the parliamentary headquarters for the European Union [Ed.: now in Brussels].

The reference to seven past kings (five have fallen, one is, and the other not yet come who remains a short while) is a historic description of the Holy Roman Empire. There have been seven Charles' as Emperors of the Holy Roman Empire. World Book Encyclopedia and other reference documents summarize the history of the Holy Roman Empire by these seven kings. This is a historical fact. But what makes this prophecy such a puzzle is its reference to the beast being "also an eighth, and is one of the seven."  The answer is simple and right before us. They all have the name Charles — Prince Charles will be the eighth when he rules over the ancient Holy Roman Empire (the modern European Union). How is he one of the seven? He is a direct descendant of the Charles VI through the Hapsburg line.

So we have seven ancient kings that depict the ancient Holy Roman Empire, what are the ten kings that rule with the beast for one hour?

The modern European Union was formed in 1993 and is made up of fifteen European nations. It has a parliament in Brussels. It has a Judiciary. It has an Executive called the European Council of Ministers (ECM) with fifteen rulers. It has formed its own currency and dollar. It has its own flag.

The new Euro Dollar has transformed Europe in a host of ways. They have gone way beyond the original idea of a common market. The EU is well on its way to becoming an economic powerhouse. However, not everyone of the fifteen EU nations have signed up for this Euro Dollar. Some are not economically strong enough to join the club and some want to hold onto their own money. For example, the United Kingdom doesn't want to give up their pound sterling. Therefore, a controversy is brewing within the ECM (council of ministers). This executive function is
to serve like our Federal Reserve (controlling the money). The EU does not want rulers from other European countries having a say about the Euro Dollar if they aren't signed up for it. So, the ECM is preparing to shrink in number accordingly (possibly ten or eleven). If this is the set of ten kings spoken of in the prophecy, then it will be ten not eleven.

Now this is the really interesting part. Each of these ministers in the ECM get to have the power to rule for six months each on a rotating basis. Each minister takes his turn serving as President. However, this power sharing routine is not working. With only six months, there isn't enough time to really carry out any long term plans. The common complaint of retiring Presidents is that more time should be given to the person in this office. The suggestion has been
made that one person be given the power to rule more on the order of the U.S. President (a four-year term of office). I'll discuss more of this when we look at the prophecies of how the antichrist comes to power.

Interesting Coincidences and Prophetic Themes

The basic contrast between a Christ and antichrist or a Messiah and an antichrist is like good and evil. Evil never presents itself as black vs. white or as death
vs. life. Evil always attempts to imitate good and  offers itself as an alternative. The results are in sharp contrast, but deception has its initial appeal. The
same is said for the antichrist.

Messiah Yeshua was born in a humble setting with a destiny to be the King. Prince Charles was born in a royal setting with a destiny to be a king. Yeshua's dominant parent was his mother Mary with a cousin called Elizabeth. Prince Charles' dominant parent is his mother Elizabeth with a cousin called Mary. Yeshua's mother, Mary, has testified to us in Scripture that Yeshua was born to be the Savior, thus
He was called Yeshua (which means Salvation). Queen Elizabeth when referring to Charles has been quoted as saying, "He is the chosen one, the one destined to rule."

The Bible is full of controversies between the plans and purposes of God versus the plans and purposes of others. The controversies of Ishmael and Isaac or of Jacob and Esau are but a few that could be  mentioned. Ishmael was Abraham's first born, but he was not the son of promise. Esau was first born; but he despised his birthright and Jacob was the prophesied one. The antichrist is to come with similar controversy and it centers on who has the right to rule. Who is the true son of David?  For it was David who was promised that his throne would never lack for leadership. Given the history of the world and everyone's migration upon the globe, even Jews lack the genealogical evidence to prove their ancestry. For anyone to prove their lineage back to King David would be surely contested; unless, you're Prince Charles. His genealogical chart has been maintained throughout the centuries and he can trace his birth back that far. Therefore, Prince Charles can and does claim to be the "son of David." This is a major precondition for laying claim to be the messiah.

Many prophecy students view the image of the antichrist as a great charismatic figure who sweeps the world off its feet with power, offering himself first
as a hero, then turning to evil. These are the vain imaginations of men. The Scripture presents the antichrist as the person with no power who usurps and influences others. Those with power give it to him. To quote Prince Charles directly, he says, "I have no power of my own, but I have influence. And you will have to see what I do with it."

The prophet Daniel offers this intriguing element about the antichrist.

And he [antichrist] will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all. DAN 11:37

Prince Charles in recent years has caused some concern for his decision to change one of his titles. The title in question is "Defender of the Faith."  He has changed it to say, Defender of Faiths." His rationale is that he wants all of his subjects to identify with him, not just the Christians. This is a major departure from the past. The King of Great Britain is in the position of being head of the church (in opposition to the Pope). Prince Charles apparently does not regard the god of his fathers.

The next phrase of the prophecy says, "no regard... for the desire of women." When Charles married Lady Diana, many prophecy teachers dismissed Charles as
the antichrist candidate on this alone. They need to examine this prophecy a bit more. It is Diana that uniquely qualifies Charles for this prophecy.

There are two ways to regard the prophecy "no desire for women." One is from the homosexual standpoint. The Biblical expression "no desire for women" generally means there is instead a desire for men. Prince Charles, just prior to marrying Lady Diana, was fending off hints and suggestions that he was homosexual. These rumors persisted even after his marriage. However, Stephen Barry, the eleven-year personal valet for Prince Charles wrote a book entitled In His Royal Service that quelled these rumors. Stephen Barry asserted, as his personal valet, he could verify that Prince Charles was all man and that these rumors were simply that — rumors. He, himself, offered his own personal witness that Prince Charles was heterosexual and that he had assisted in some arranged meetings with other ladies. Everyone pretty much accepted Stephen's testimony until he died of AIDS three years after leaving Prince Charles employment. It was obvious that Stephen Barry was, himself, homosexual.

But it is the secondary meaning of "no regard... for the desire of women" that brings Diana into the picture more clearly. A more modern translation would read, "He will have no regard for the most desirable among women." The word "desire" is an adjective of women, not a verb for the antichrist.
"No regard" is the verb for the antichrist.

This brings us to the special role of Diana in Charles life. Without any doubt, the world regarded Princess Diana as one of the most desirable women in the
world. This is the woman that Prince Charles said publicly, I have no desire for her."  Additionally, you may recall that Diana is the ancient name of a goddess worshiped by the Romans. There are a number of mythological symbols and stories and that meld into this entire scenario. Prince Charles' marriage and relationship with Diana did not disqualify him in this prophecy; it uniquely qualified him.

How the Antichrist Comes to Power

How the antichrist comes to power and is given the authority to rule for 42 months are some of the most specific prophecies of him. Let's examine what
the prophet Zechariah says as he compares the antichrist to the evil shepherd.

Thus says the Lord my God, "Pasture the flock doomed to slaughter. Those who buy them slay them and go unpunished, and each of those who sell them says, Blessed be the Lord, for I have become rich!' And their own shepherds have no pity on them. For I shall no longer have pity on the inhabitants of the land," declares the Lord; "but behold, I shall cause the men to fall, each into another's power and into the power of his king; and they will strike the land, and I shall not deliver them from their power." ZEC 11:4-6

The first step of the antichrist coming to power is us losing control of our own national sovereignty. This prophecy says that we lose control of our own selves and then we are given over into the power of our own ruler. Our own ruler will then give his power (control of us) to the antichrist. With each succeeding step of globalization, emergency government powers, and internal security requirements, our personal freedoms are inching their way toward capitulation. With the recent September 11 attack, congress has enacted legislation that has increased the power of government and decreased the privacy of people. I understand the reasons and agree with what has to be done. I also understand that this is the same process described by the prophets.

So I pastured the flock doomed to slaughter, hence the afflicted of the flock. And I took for myself two staffs: the one I called Favor, and the other I called Union; so I pastured the flock. Then I annihilated the three shepherds in one month, for my soul was impatient with them, and their soul also was weary of  me. Then I said, I will not pasture you. What is to die, let it die, and what is to be annihilated, let it be annihilated; and let those who are left eat one another's flesh."  And I took my staff, Favor, and cut it in pieces, to break my covenant which I had made with all the peoples. So it was broken on that day, and thus the afflicted of the flock who were watching me realized that it was the word of the Lord. Then I cut my second staff, Union, in pieces, to break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel. ZEC 11:7-11,14

The antichrist comes to power under two staffs called Union and Favor. The actual rise to power is in the midst of ten kings by uprooting three of them. According to the prophecy, the antichrist will be impatient with the three and they will be weary of him. The remaining seven will give their power
to him.

This description is not of a powerful handsome leader who sweeps everyone off their feet. It is better described as the political intrigue of our day. The
present European Union is simply referred to as the Union. Those nations who have agreed upon the Euro Dollar are said to have received Favor. The power that the antichrist will be given and wield is economic — the very aim and purpose of the European Union.

As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will  arise after them, and he will be different  from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. DAN 7:24

Prince Charles is not an elected official as the rulers of the European Union; he is a monarch. Therefore, as the prophecy says, he is different from them. Maybe you are wondering if Prince Charles has any interest in leading Europe? He does. He tried to influence the original definition of the ECM in its formation in 1992. He argued that the monarchy was the most stable form of government, but Europe was into democracy and they turned him down. But the prophecy says they will consider his offer when they become a group of ten kings.

And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. REV 17:12

There are two competing models for the definition of world globalism. One is the UN model and the other European. The UN wants one great big community
of everyone helping everyone. The European model divides the world into three parts: developed nations, developing nations, and undeveloped nations. The European model contends that there are not enough resources in the world for all nations to be developed and, therefore, part of the world needs to be sacrificed to meet the need of the other part. The European model also contends that there is not enough food to go around and the world population should be significantly reduced. There are six billion people right now; they think two billion would be a better number. The language of Zechariah suggests that the antichrist will be the guy who leads the world while a large number of people die from starvation and lack of resources. Prince Charles is a globalist. He is the leading proponent of the European model.

Present rumblings out of Europe with the advent of the Euro Dollar and its currency is calling for a new definition for the European Council of Ministers and the authority that its President should have.  Speculation is running that the new definition and powers should be accomplished as early as 2002 or more likely 2003. March or April of 2003 would be a fascinating time for the ten ruler committee to formulate and implement these ideas. Seven rulers, each with six months to rule, could give their power to one man. Seven times six equals forty-two months
to rule. The prophecy is very specific that we will know that he has the full forty-two months on the day he begins to rule.

How the Antichrist will be Assassinated

Several years ago, when I began to speak publicly about Prince Charles and the prophecies of the antichrist, I was confronted by some who just couldn't see it that way. They didn't understand the number thing or get it about the coat-of-arms. In fact, of all the complaints I have ever heard directed against me or the ministry, it has stemmed from this subject.

Some critics just can't imagine, mild mannered, meek, geeky Prince Charles having the necessary fiber to be a world leader let alone the feared and mighty antichrist. I rarely get to discuss this objection face to face. When I do, I remind them that Hitler was a corporal in WWI and his wimpy style didn't stop him from leading the world in WWII which killed 50 million people including six million Jews.
Yeshua refers to the antichrist as the son of perdition (destruction) because he will kill more people than anyone in the world has ever come close to killing.

One of my critics on this subject was a pastor of a large church. Several of his folks had heard my information on this topic and had enthusiastically shared it with him. He was unimpressed, and in an effort to discredit me offered the following, trying to say no one will know who the antichrist is. "If I
knew who the antichrist was in the world. I'd do God a big favor and get a gun. I'd go and shoot him in the head," so the pastor said before the chuckles of the church. The really ironic thing is someone is prophesied to do what he said.

The prophecy says that the antichrist will be assassinated prior to him coming to power.

And I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; REV 13:3

And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. REV 13:12

And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was
given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. REV 13:14

Revelation speaks of the antichrist as having had a fatal head wound. The antichrist's counterpart (the false prophet) is to assist in reviving the antichrist. Political assassination is something this generation is well aware of. From the Kennedy's to Martin Luther King, to Sadat and Rabin, we are very aware of how assassination news travels and is regarded. Can you imagine an assassination that results in a  resurrection? This is what the prophecy says about the antichrist. Whether this produces additional public support or not is debatable, but the prophecy relates to it each time the false prophet promotes the beast. But, it won't be a complete healing... The  prophet Zechariah says there will be some residual effects from the wound. Apparently, he will be blind in his right eye and his right arm will not work either.

Woe to the worthless shepherd who leaves the flock! A sword will be on his arm and on his right eye! His arm will be totally withered, and his right eye will be blind. ZEC 11:17

In conclusion, I have been asked many times if Prince Charles knows who he is. That is, if he is the  antichrist, does he know that he is. My answer is  Yes. I believe that the antichrist is patiently waiting for his time just as the Messiah waited for His. I  believe he is trusting in the promise that was given by his father.

I will give you all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. Therefore if you worship before me, it shall all be yours. LUKE 4:7

Am I afraid of what Prince Charles might do with me identifying him? Nope.

I'm small potatoes in this world. I'm just the "him" who did the calculation.

"Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast...

A Reader Comments: "What About Prince William Instead?"

Hi Tim, read your article on "Identity of the Anti Christ", and read another that goes on to say that Prince William also fills the 666 criterion.

I think this was the site (it was a while ago) and it's quite heavy going. Another thing that leads me towards Prince William rather than Charles is the need for parallels between the true Christ and Antichrist. Jesus didn't start his ministry until he was 30 years of age (Prince William will be 30 in 2012), it lasted approx 3 1/2 years (another parallel with the reign of the antichrist) Charles doesn't fit the bill, as he is just too old in my view, but time
will tell.

As I said the site is heavy going, and the white on black type is not too easy on the eyes but a bit of fiddling with monitor brightness helps.

Would love to hear your take on it.

Many Thanks.


Hi Mark,

This is a common question, so I'm glad you asked and prompted me to cover it here. See this article for why Prince William is not the Antichrist.

As for the idea that the Antichrist "must parallel the real Christ" is only a fanciful theory. The Bible does not say he gains power by pretending to be Jesus in every way, but it shows that he comes to power right after and directly from the Wormwood-caused global chaos and famine (Rev 6-8), a power void from America's destruction (Rev 17:17-18), through miracles to convince everyone he is God (Rev 13, 2; Th 2:4), and his armies defeating those who defeated America (Dan 11:44; Rev 9) to establish peace, safety and prosperity during the length of his reign (Mt 24:37-39).

Finally the age of any Antichrist candidate is not a factor. It says he will die and be raised from the dead in Rev 13, so how is age a barrier? Also, Prince Charles's grandmother died at 101 and his mother is still going strong at 91. It may be the angelic DNA in that bloodline, but either way Prince Charles has great genes and anyone with the power of Satan won't be stopped by such conventional concerns.

For more detail on these events see my Revelation Roadmap timeline.

2026, I agree with you Tim.

September 23, 2017 saw Revelation 12:1-2 happen.

Adam and Eve represent Gemini
Noah represents Taurus
Moses represents Aries
Yeshua represents Pisces
When asked about the coming new age the resurrected Yeshua told his disciples to enter the house of the water bearer, Aquarius. The precession of the ages is obvious.
Wormwood will soon cause earthquakes and tsunami which will devastate the USA east of the Mississippi and Western Europe from Spain to Scandinavia.
In 2026, like every 3650 years or so, the Earth will enter a new age and experience a pole shift.
Welcome to the age of Aquarius.
Be sure you catch “the feeling”

KJ - November 9, 2023

I have come across this theory before. I do not feel compelled by Holy Spirit to read the Cup of tea book. I respect this website and summary. Personally I think is more important to focus on Christ and holiness, and being ready with oil in our lamp. What I find far more fascinating is wormwood and the earth falling apart. Who ever this snake antichrist satanic man that rises, it will be after great calamity befalls earth. We all keep worrying or wondering who is the antichrist? But trully Will we survive or relocate and survive, what will God’s orders be on these treacherous days, and…by then …Some man broadcasting on the news globally saying “I have the answer to food and will save you.” I think we can use common sense it is the antichrist. DOn’t forget the whole picture everyone.

Bob Thomas - July 8, 2023

I was listening to another guy talking about prophesies of Frances president being the antichrist who doesn’t even fit the lineage even though he seems like a pausable type of antichrist. but before this guy Stan shared the prophesy je read the scripture in Daniel about the little horn who rises and puts down 3 nations. Immediately I thought of how England rose up and put down Scotland, Ireland, and Wales and formed the UK. I remembered Tim Cohen’s video title about Prince/ king Charles. I went and listened. He said some good stuff. He said his name equaled 666 but did not show how or in the graph. I have heard that about alot of names. Now I have found your article which clearly shows all the proof to read and the numerocal graph chart of his name. Thank you so much. I am now convinced.

    Artur - July 10, 2023

    But i got a better one. Since there is always a debate that the AC name has to be calculated to 666 or 616 (the Papyrus 115 is the only document of Revalation that says its 616– i tell you something.

    PRINCE CHARLES OF WALES or in HEBREW -> נסיכ צרלס מוילס is calculated to 666 – but KING CHARLES OF WALES or in HEBREW -> מלך צרלס מוילס is calculated to 616 – any doubts ?

Just wondering…since the 666 gematria no longer works (he is now “King Charles III,” not “Prince Charles of Wales”)…do you still think he’s the AC?

    Artur - June 5, 2023

    It does still work .

    King Charles of Wales = 18 Letters – divided by 3 (because he is the Third King Charles of Wales) is 6 and its 1/3 of 18 – 2/3 of 18 is another 6 and 3/3 of 18 is another 6 – so you get 3 times 6 out of 18.

    But i got a better one. Since there is always a debate that the AC name has to be calculated to 666 or 616 – i tell you something.

    PRINCE CHARLES OF WALES or in HEBREW -> נסיכ צרלס מוילס is calculated to 666 – but KING CHARLES OF WALES or in HEBREW -> מלך צרלס מוילס is calculated to 616 – any doubts ?

      Vernon - October 19, 2023

      Artur, Charles is not now the King of Wales, he is the King of England. You need to run the numbers on this basis, surely?

Melinda W - May 7, 2023

Prince Charles is the Defender of the Faith but declares himself to be Defender of the Faiths, breaking from Christian tradition–that would make him a worthless Shepherd.
His non-desire for women? Just saying, not accusing.
Claims to be a descendent of Mohammad
Claims to be a descendent of Vlad the Impaler
Dracula (Vlad the Impaler) word derives from Dragon

Hope this helps Tim…I really like your research and I am watching closely, however there are others in the running and I am watching them too with the rest of the Body of Christ.

BTW, in the article it said, how could a wimpy man like Charles ever be a terror to be reckoned with.

I think that question was answered by Bill Gates, the ultimate terror and wimp.

Jesus bless you.

Suzanne T - May 4, 2023

This is an interesting read as we are coming up on the weekend that Charles becomes king.

If he is the antichrist, was he speaking of himself in 3rd person when he gave that speech at a summit..

“Many countries are too burdened with debt…. What we need is a military style campaign to marshall in…..With trillions at his disposal, beyond global GDP and with the greatest respect beyond any global leader. It offers the only true hope…”

Douglas Gray - January 2, 2021

Tim, first you quote REV. “And I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; REV 13:3”

But then you start talking about him “recovering from a head wound”. REV speaks of more than one head, but we both know that Prince Charles only has one head, just like everyone else.

    Tim McHyde - January 2, 2021

    Douglas, yes, and Prince Charles was not alive at the time John saw this 7 headed beast vision…so perhaps you are not understanding what the beast “that rises from the abyss” represents fully over history and in the present? The 7th head version of the beast is not Prince Charles and is even seen on earth yet, yet that will change and when it does that head/version will receive a deadly wound.

      BREXIT shot down this idea with the EU didn’t it?

    The beast isn’t Charles, it’s a government of course, but head is singular, “ONE” of his heads, not “THREE are wounded”. Not sure what you or Tim are thinking.

    H, yes, Dome of the Rock’s location is no accident. There is no peace treaty in Bible prophecy, so the Saudi treaty is not that.

      Does Daniel 9:27 speak of a peace treaty (covenant) that will be broken 3 1/2 years later?
      ”27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.”

Darren Melnyk - September 11, 2020

I’ve dug and I’ve hunted for “truth” on the Bible, Biblical prophecy etc for along time readers. I can honestly say I’ve yet to find anyone who puts his finger on issues as well as Tim has and continues to do. After all…it’s the “truth” which sets us free folks.

Joel Tyger - July 15, 2020

Hi Tim. I was just reading an article a 13th zodiac sign. The news seems to date back to September 2016, but it’s doing the rounds again. I think there’s an army of people who trawl through old stories looking for something old to make it new again.

Back then, and now, brought to the surface once more, NASA announced a 13th sign of the zodiac, thousands of years after the emergence of the 12 sign system.

What makes this intriguing is the name and meaning attributed to this 13th sign. It’s Ophiuchus, or serpent bearer. The antichrist will not literally be carrying a snake but if you consider that he will be in-dwelt by Satan, then in a sense, the antichrist will be “carrying a serpent”.

Why, I wonder, did NASA consider it pertinent to make this announcement this decade and not last, or next?

Prince Charles was born 14th November but that is not the point I’m making. I’m drawing attention to the esoteric nature of this “discovery”. There once was 12, now there’s 13, and the new one bears a serpent.

So the world is being encouraged to adjust dates of the old zodiac to “make way” for this new one. Certainly not a prophetic sign to be aligned with any Biblical passages, but interesting all the same.

Cheers, Joel

Jeff Baker - June 4, 2020

London Daily Mail headline this morning: “Prince Charles unveils theme of 2021 Davos event named ‘The Great Reset’”

World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab said ‘a great reset’ was needed, and insisted the meeting could ‘build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being’.

He added: ‘The global health crisis has laid bare the unsustainability of our old system in terms of social cohesion, the lack of equal opportunities and inclusiveness.”

The stage continues to be set. Charles clearly carries significant behind the scenes influence in the process.


    Joel Tyger - December 7, 2020

    PCOW continues to star at the WEF events. He can be seen in many of their videos campaigning on several different fronts. Keep an eye on new WEF announcements and track the movements of PCOW. He will continue to build his profile while incessantly calling for the dismantling of free trade and open and free social interaction. If he has his way, and it’s not too long before that will be the case for a short duration, the nations of the world will hand over their sovereignty, citizens, finances and armed forces to him and his tribe to do with as they please.

ESqueeze - May 10, 2020

I’m English so please don’t accuse me of Brit bashing.

Just to work on the theme a little bit Jerusalem has 7 hills. Is Charles the Antichrist in the “New Jerusalem”?

Britania, always depicted as a woman, is entirely responsible for modern globalism. Is she the whore of Babylon. The “Whore of Babylon”?

The church Anglican Church broke away from the Catholic church just so a King could commit adultery. Is the false church the Anglican Church? The Antichrist will proclaim to be God in the church. Charles will be the head of the Anglican Church.

Tim, do you know Bob Thiel from the cogwriter site? what do you think of his predictions as the antichrist coming from the 10 blocks of the European Union? he made and set some predictions like Brexit, Frexit and the necessary union of china, hong kong and Taiwan …

    Tim McHyde - December 18, 2019

    No One, yes I have visited his site and know he’s teaching old Worldwide Church of God eschatology formed back when the Common Market/EU was not yet even 10 states. The theory went out of style for obvious reasons after it passed 10 and saying it’s “ten blocks of the EU” (which is a contrivance) is not compelling.

quasimodo - December 11, 2019

Prince Charles is Lucifer from what I’ve learned.

Why? He’s just a gardener who is seen as the “Father of Organic Gardening” and “Promoting Climate Change / Global Warming via CO2”

What’s the harm in that?


That’s because one is false and the other deceives people into thinking they are doing the most good for the planet and their health – and that is false too…because there is something more insidious which is the primary driver of falling health and climate.

Lucifer = Bringer of Light. But not BEing the LIGHT.

This is one of those parts of the plot / joke that we don’t get until the “joke is ready to be revealed.”

I’ll also add…the Royal House also promotes PRIDE. Knighting people, promoting directly / indirectly pomp & circumstance & doing good deeds. Doing GOOD deeds – rather than BEing “GOOD.”

And that is the #1 cardinal sin…because it leads to all the others.

RODRIGO B. - August 20, 2019

Tim, you should search “Remphan Symbol” on youtube concerning what P m commented about Amos 5:26 and Acts 7:43 that the Mark of the Beast is a Star. Further, the word for mark in Revelation 13 is “charagma” in Greek which one pastor said means character or personality of the beast.

David E. Young - January 27, 2019

He is not Prince Charles of Wales, so that makes this entire study pointless.

His NAME is Charles Philip Arthur George.

His TITLE is His Royal Highness Prince Charles Philip Arthur George, Prince of Wales, KG, KT, GCB, OM, AK, QSO, CC, PC, ADC, Earl of Chester, Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron of Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.

The short version is Prince Charles.

None of these adds up to 666 in any language. You have to SPECIFICALLY word it wrong (Prince Charles of Wales) in order to come up with that, and that is REALLY stretching it. ESPECIALLY since there is no accurate Hebrew transliteration of the British “Ch” sound at the start of his given name, so the Hebrew end could use a number of letters to try to simulate the sound, any of of which changes the math.

Besides this, nothing in Scripture indicates the use of multiple languages to calculate the number of the beast. What is it in Spanish, French, Mongolian, Chinese, etc?

I guarantee with the hundreds of billions of people who have come and gone since 2000 years ago that MANY names add up to 666 in both Hebrew and another language why trying to hybrid the gematria to a language it never was part of.

But on this particular study, there is no possible way his name can be added to 666 when used in any proper manner, and “Prince Charles of Wales” is not his name or title under any conditions.

The Welsh title him as “Charles, Prince of Wales” for the purposes of their own reporting. But they do not call him “Prince Charles of Wales” and his TITLE is not his NAME.

Be wary of adding a SINGLE word to that Book of prophecy. It is not something to play with.

    Tim McHyde - January 28, 2019

    David, that’s only one version of many names by which he referred to. Note that Revelation 13 does not say anything beyond “name” leaving it open to interpretation which name to use or whether to include middle names, married names, nicknames, etc. You are narrowly interpreting it as one version of his name for no good SCRIPTURAL reason.

      Dave - June 22, 2020

      Hi Tim. Yes it’s me I think we may have got off on the wrong foot. Thanks for this I have read this and very interesting. Can I just say keep an eye on the pop. And the changes he is trying to make, this does not bode with others. ( His assassin’s ) will show you who the antichrist is and the seven heads.

    GLEAN - December 20, 2019

    And David E Young. ask anyone one on planet earth whom “Charles Philip Arthur George” is and I bet almost No one will know. BUT you ask ANYONE who “Prince Charles of Wales” is and everyone will know. Your just splitting hairs. On the Worlds stage that man is KNOWN as Prince Charles of Wales and you know that. AND here in 20DEC2019 Prince Charles of Wales is currently pushing for RFID chips to be injected into people FOR BANKING INFORMATION!! LOOK it up.

P m - January 26, 2019

Read Ezra 2:13 ( Adonikam) this is antichrist family name. The mark is a star. Amos 5:26 Acts 7:43. The number is 666. Revelation 13:18.

    RODRIGO B. - August 20, 2019

    Dear P m, the Star mentioned in Acts 7:43 as “Remphan” is also known as Saturn or an idol of Saturn whom is Kronus in the Greek and Satan in Astrotheology and in Amos 5:26 it is written as Chiun or Kiyyun depending on the Holy Bible version you are reading . I paste from Smiths Bible Dictionary here-
    Rem’phan. Acts 7:43. Remphan and Chiun, Amos 5:26, have been supposed to be names of an idol, worshipped secretly by the Israelites in the wilderness, difficulty has been occasioned, by this corresponding occurrence of two names, so wholly different in sound. The most reasonable opinion seems to be that Chiun was a Hebrew or Semitic name, and Remphan was an Egyptian equivalent, substituted by the Septuagint (LXX). This idol corresponded, probably, to Saturn or Molech. The mention of Chiun or Remphan as worshipped in the desert, shows that this idolatry was, in part, at least, that of foreigners, and, no doubt, of those settled in lower Egypt. See Chiun.

    Molech has 2 other variant spellings known to me: 1. Malawk, 2. Melech … and all 3 mean King or ruler .
    In Astrology the Father figure is Saturn not Jupiter; anyone who has dabbled in Astrology knows that. A Father is the King of the house. And, In Astrotheology Saturn rules Capricorn and currently is in his home or ruling constellation/sign of such. If Satan is going to do something outrageously outstanding it is going to be while Saturn is in Capricorn or Aquarius or which both constellations/signs are ruled by Saturn except, in modern Astrology; Aquarius has been assigned Uranus as it’s new ruler.

mightyjoeold - January 19, 2019

Hi Tim,

It seem rather redundant that you put Prince Charles of Wales, when his name is simply Prince Charles.

    Tim McHyde - January 19, 2019

    Joe Old, not really. “Prince Charles” is the simplest form of his name that works in conversation. But what if someone says, “Who’s Prince Charles?” Then you go to his more full and complete identification of “Prince Charles of Wales” just as encyclopedia entries and newspapers use. Note, the Bible does not specify anything beyond “name” as in “short” “long” “name including title” so it’s up to us to use common sense.

Joshua Reymond - January 16, 2019

With regard to the anti-christ, He will chip all over the world or just the areas around Israel, and that order to buy and sell as well and given only to those nearby? will there be only 1 kingdom or other kingdoms that will be anti-christ or will there be no marks or need to flee the mountains? Would all these dictators Xijinping, Putin, accept to give power to him?

    Tim McHyde - January 18, 2019

    Joshua, there is no doubt that, like the flood of Noah, the Beast dominates the whole world. Or “every tongue, people,” etc. as Revelation 13 says, all except one place “Edom, Moab, Ammon”=Jordan (Dan 11:41). Those dictators and most of the population will be dead by the time the Antichrist rises because of Wormwood and WW3, which is how he comes to power, the world is crushed and existing leadership and security gone.

This may be hard to follow but….Daniel 9:27, wall finished 434 BC(this day holy unto the Lord). 62 weeks later Messiah cut off,(the day the calendar goes to AD. If you go back from this point, 33 years and 9 months,(Jesus age+time in womb). From this new point,go forward to the year Mohammed rode to heaven on a white horse from the temple mount,(the day the Islamic calendar begins and the time span is 666 years. The expected Mahdi will fulfill what is predicted about the beast of Revelation. The shahada requires people to renounce Jesus as Christ or die.

Emma - May 11, 2018

Had a shocking realisation today.
Prince Harry, who was born Henry Charles Albert David on September 15 1984, is formally known as Prince Henry of Wales. He’s currently 33 years old.

33 is the same age as our Lord Jesus when he was put to death.

Meghan Markle =MM.

MM=Mary Magdalene

If it will be an inversion, this would be the year that it would happen to Harry.

I don’t know why but I have a gut feeling that he will be assassinated publicly at his wedding, maybe just after.

If it was a very public death then he recovering from a fatal head wound would be all the more shocking.

I had a gut feeling about Harry and when I checked out how old he is, I literally fell over.

Pray very hard that I’m wrong on this.

    Emma, actually Jesus started his ministry at “about thirty” (Lk 3:23) and died after a 62 week ministry or “about one year” as the church fathers said before the much more recent “3.5 year ministry” theory took hold. This means he died at 31 years old, not 33.

    This is heart breaking and I’m always praying for those boy’s, that God would use them for ministry.

    Emma, this is very hard. I’m not understanding how this all ties in with today, but I’m still learning.

    God Bless

The first time I had heard of this theory was from another prophetic bible ministry. I looked up the name “Charles” at an online name-meaning site and it said quite simply something like ‘a man’ or just ‘man’, identical or close the the scriptureal reference. Interesting to see the numerical calculation and meaning of the actual same similar or the same.

Have since looked up the name again from different sources and generally they all use the word ‘man’ but different combo words. This was a good one for understanding the meaning/variants of the name:

I just watched a documentary that mentioned this theory and felt compelled to read around the subject – as theories go… Its a little “out there” (imho)

My main issue would have to be the name being used for Charles, as the theory only seems to hold if you use a made up name!?!

His names is just “Charles” as the royal family don’t have surnames. Prince of wales is just a title. There are plenty of other people called Charles in the world, so perhaps one of those is the AC?

    Tim McHyde - August 23, 2017

    Sceptical, What you’re missing is that your arbitrary, narrow definition of name is not the same broad definition of name the Bible is using. “Prince Charles of Wales” is not made up, it happens to be the simplest still complete name/identification of him available, which is why it’s the most common identification of him in media including encyclopedias like Wikipedia. Bear in mind this name was chosen before there even was a Wikipedia yet how confirming it is that by choosing this name you’re not inventing or even forcing anything, you’re going with the most obvious choice of letters used to identify the man, and it adds up to 666 in two languages with the most obvious and unforced method of calculating his name in English. An eye-witness also confirms he is not human, something also that was not known to be a Biblical requirement by the eye-witness. Then there is his image. He’s the leading candidate by far because his data literally matches Rev 13’s requirements without forcing or using contrivances.

European royalty is largely an inbred bunch. However, Britian is not of Roman origin. Largely, it is Ephraim and recipients of half the birthright covenant.
Charles et. al. are part of the promise to David that no one would be lacking to sit on his throne until Messiah returns.

Always good to read details like this, however Charles is not the AC. 🙁

    Tim McHyde - July 25, 2017

    Ben, I agree the UK is of Lost Ten Tribes origin, but it can also be said of a prince from the UK that he is of Roman origin, geographically because as the article goes on to explain, “Britannia was the head of the western Roman Empire.”

Devin - July 17, 2017

I have never seen a reliable gematria and all the charts vary incredibly. Using the full name Prince Charles of Wales seems a little much addition and not just focused solely on name, but add title as well. Plus pretty much every online gematria calculator I have added this to gives me 1272, not 666. What is the standard gematria you are using in the picture? The connection to the throne of David(Jeremiah 33:20-21) and Roman Banner of Titus is one of incredible intrigue, but tho Coat of Arms is call for a watchful eye.

Jody Finne - June 21, 2017

Very interesting theory about Prince Charles as the possible AC. Queen mom lived to be 101 years old. Elizabeth is currently 91 and still the ruling monarch. She could retire at any moment and give the throne to Charles making him the King of the British empire.

Tim…do you think Elizabeth will sit on the throne until 2026? That will put her at age 100. Hebrew numerology states that Charles bears the number 666. There is an Englishman who thinks the number of man is 616.

Kim Spicer - April 29, 2017

I am really interested in all these things, and I’m glad you’ve pointed out that the Anti-Christ must come from Europe. However, one big thing goes against Charles as a possible candidate (and William, come to that). The AC will be a man of great charm, able to draw people to himself. I believe that (and no, there’s no Biblical evidence for this, as far as I know), that he will also be incredibly good-looking, able to seduce on a physical level too. Given that, I don’t know of any visible world leaders today who would fit … I also have a faint recollection that the AC will ‘rise from the ranks’ somewhere. If this is to be fulfilled, it means that at the moment (at least until he’s revealed) he wouldn’t necessarily be on our radar.

    Tim McHyde - April 29, 2017

    Hi Kim, it’s a Christian myth that the Antichrist has great charisma or wins through popular appeal. It has humanistic appeal to it, but the Bible says nothing about such things and instead says he comes to power in the great tribulation (5th trumpet) after the devastating global cataclysm of Wormwood (6th seal – 4th trumpet) by arriving on the scene claiming (with proof) to be God (2Th 2:4) and I think this is the strong delusion mentioned later in the same chapter (2Th 2:11).

      Kim Spicer - April 29, 2017

      Many thanks Tim – it’s not wise, I understand, to hold a belief that isn’t backed by the Bible and I appreciate your correction here. We live in exciting times seeing lots of Biblical prophecies come to pass, and I want to become wiser myself in understanding and interpreting the times.

William Trinh - February 26, 2017

Hi Tim,

I read your theory on how Prince Charles may be a good candidate for the antichrist and found that interesting. I am not one who is vigilantly looking for any one person who fits the profile in our time and age, however, in the past couple of years a number of world shaking events (i.e. the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president, and Russia’s unchallenged annexation of Crimea – soon all of Ukraine) has rekindled my interest in this subject. Men of lawlessness are rising in power all around the world and the masses are hopelessly caught in mass deception/ delusion – unwilling and unable to discern truth. The current state of the world certainly feels like 2 Thes 2: 1-12.

Is it possible that we can over analyze scripture in our search for the antichrist and miss what is hiding in plain site?

I’ve known for a while that Jared Kushner, Donald Trump’s son in law married to Ivanka, owns the notorious sky rise at the center of Manhatten located on 666 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10012. At the very top of the building are the numbers 666 emblazoned in red (
He purchased the property in 2007 for $1.8Billion dollars. Can this be coincidental? Or is it possible that the Trump clan has some connection to the antichrist spirit that is at work today?

Trump’s connection with the Russians is also very alarming, particularly the extreme right, ultra-nationalist, anti-liberal democratic views of his administration that compliment the views of Alexsandr Dugin, otherwise known as “Putin’s Brain” (
Dugin allegedly is the mastermind behind the annexation of Crimea and his new world vision of a Eurasian empire centered in Moscow is shaping Russian foreign policy/ intrigue around the world.

Dugin even compares the Eurasian empire to the Roman Empire in his writings, alluding often to a mystical, supernatural mandate for the resurrection of the ancient empires of the Romans and Mongols to wage war and destroy the Babylonic Empire of the West led by the U.S.A (

See also:

and his book – “The Fourth Political Theory”

When I discovered this information about Dugin, I was shocked and very disturbed by the fact that this man’s ideology is guiding Putin’s foreign policy, and possibly our own.

Do you see any connection between the Russia/Trump/global revolution against the liberal democratic world order and Biblical prophecy?

Is this global revolution against the U.S.A. and its established world order (engineered by the Russians I presume) what Revelations 17:16-17 talking about?

    Tim McHyde - February 26, 2017


    This article is by Monte Judah, not me. I believe it is the best research on the subject still. It may be wrong. But as you said of yourself, I too am not really concerned or looking for the antichrist. I know Elijah will tell us and that we won’t even be in the Antichrist’s reach when he does come. But unless you can show how someone fulfills Rev 13 and 19 literally like Prince Charles does I would not consider them a viable candidate regardless of how powerful or connected they are. Sorry if this is not the answer you were hoping for.

      Miranda - January 29, 2018

      What do you mean when you say we won’t be in his reach? Can you give more details please? Do you mean we will be protected, or raptured, or hidden…

      Joel Tyger - February 23, 2020

      Hi Tim, I’m seeking your opinion on this one. Do you think PC knows that he’ll become the AC or is he currently under a powerful delusion such that he thinks he’s nothing more than a tax-payer funded royal, until such time as his transition takes the world, and him, by surprise?

    Beast - March 13, 2018

    Ivanka is beautiful, and very intelligent.

    Daniel Lynx - October 21, 2018

    Prince Charles is not the antichrist, he is no “fierce appearance” as Daniel described. The antichrist will look like a stern hercules, perhaps zeus. Perhaps have facial tattoos or piercings. He’s going to worship Satan and be a master of intrigue, he won’t look like a wimp, weakling or friendly guy.

      Tim McHyde - October 21, 2018

      Daniel, yes actually nobody is the Antichrist yet; We only have potential candidates. Daniel 8:23 is variously translated as “insolent” “fierce countenance” “ruthless” which is not necessarily intended as you narrowly apply it. Also, it’s speaking of the king after he is inhabited by the beast from the abyss and becomes Antichrist. To compare anyone today to how the Antichrist acts after he is demonized is going about it the wrong way. Look instead for the identifying characteristics (666, etc.) rather than action characteristics.

        Optimix - September 10, 2022

        “insolent” “fierce countenance” “ruthless” = charles lol? I’m not narrowing a thing, you’re being vague.

        I replied fully to you here


        It’s a blog page.

How does Brexit factor into this, now that the UK is no longer a part of the EU?

    Tim McHyde - February 8, 2017

    Gabe, Monte Judah (who wrote this article) thought the EU was important just as he thought the Oslo Treaty was the start of the Great Tribulation period. But it’s not. Wormwood comes and wrecks the world and the Antichrist comes up and offers to restore order and food for the world. See for more on how the Antichrist comes to power. So you can see Brexit matters not one bit when the whole world and its current leaders are going to be mostly wiped out!
