Mountains are at times used to refer to great governments or kingdoms in the Bible, such as in Isaiah when it refers to Christ’s Kingdom being established as the top Kingdom among the other nations, represented as lower mountains or little hills.
The SEVEN HEADS represent seven great mountains (governments or kingdoms) that have been composite parts in the development of the final great Revelation beast kingdom
of antichrist. These seven kingdoms of man have historically given their mammon contributions of knowledge, culture, and scientific advancements, as they have afflicted and affected Israel since God called her out of Egypt.
The First Head in Part 1 was the Egyptian Kingdom
The Second Head in Part 2 was the Assyrian Kingdom
The Third Head in Part 3 was the Babylonian Kingdom
The Fourth Head in Part 4 was the Medo-Persian Kingdom
The Fifth Head in Part 5 was the Grecian or Macedonian Kingdom
Revelation 13:5 – And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
It would seem by the two expressions “was given” one might be inclined to accept that the antichrist is, at this point in time, a human completely indwelled with all the fullness of Satan and, as such, could be classified as Satan incarnate in human flesh. In any case, this verse certainly compares well with the eleventh horn of Daniel’s fourth beast.
Daniel 7:8 – I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
The greatest things spoken from human lips, labeled as being blasphemous, entail claims made to be God, of God, sent by God, speaking for God, or that direct others to a false god who claims to be the true God.
The antichrist, in II Thessalonians 2:4, not only seems to present himself outwardly to mankind as being God, but almost seems to be trying to prove it to himself.
II Thessalonians 2:4 – Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
Allah is the God of more than 1.5 billion Muslims from one end of the earth to the other. If a man, who was thought to be distantly related to the Prophet Mohammed, was apparently killed, but appeared to come back to life, and then claimed to be the Islamic Messiah (Mahdi) in the flesh, he would be believed. (See Part 4 in this Series)
Many are convinced that the antichrist must be a Jew in order for the Jews to accept him as one who can confirm the covenant of Daniel 9:27, on which they base their assumption. However, I am convinced that the “he” in this Scripture is not antichrist, but rather the Son of God, Jesus Christ.
Daniel 9:27 – 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.

In any case, the antichrist of Revelation 13:5 continues for 42 prophetic months after he receives the power to do so.
All prophetic years are 360 days in length, and all
prophetic months are 30 days in length. So, 42 prophetic months would equal 1260 days or 3 and ½ prophetic years, as found in the Scriptures that reference this same time period. A “time” is equal to 360 days, “times” is equal to 720 days, and “half a time” equals 180 days.
Daniel 7:25 – And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Revelation 12:6 – And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
Revelation 12:14 – And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times,
and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
Revelation 11:2,3 – But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.  And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
I believe the woman Israel will likely be driven into the Negev Wilderness before 2015.
