The Iron and the Clay
Posted on January 19, 2014 by icliks
The kingdom of the antichrist is described in scripture as part iron and part clay, but that these will not cleave to one another. The presence of these elements is probably derived from the fact that the kingdom is Lucifer’s final (and most successful attempt to rule mankind), but that the kingdom won’t stand. This kingdom is the devil’s attempt to subvert and co-opt the blessing of God on his Church.
Lucifer attempted to subvert the blessing in the garden of Eden, and then again when he sent his fallen angels to earth to co-mingle with the daughters of men (Gen 6:4). The result of this co-mingling was a “serpent race” that ruled over mankind before the Great Flood. There is considerable evidence for this, but for the current point it should just be said that the existence of this special ruling race is reflected in the ancient Egyptian belief that their Pharaoh was deity and that his bones were therefore made of meteoric iron (bja). The fallen ones and their hybrid offspring are the race of iron.
Lucifer’s serpent race will be present in his final kingdom in the form of the antichrist and his (racially distinct) ruling class governing human society. Possibly this class will be made up of eleven world-class elite dynastic families. This serpent race is the iron in the iron and clay formulation of Dan. 2. All people, with few exceptions, will aspire to become like them.
Clay refers to God’s people under the image of the potter’s clay (Isa 64:8). Lucifer will not rise until the world churches have apostacised, and he will have his false prophet who will assist in leading believers in the Luciferian faith. What is apostacy except the infiltration of the Christian church by Lucifer and a fusing of his ideas and spirituality with those of the church? This is the iron and clay.
The antichrist is described (in Dan. 7 and Rev. 13) as the eleventh king, who arises atop ten kings and then rules over their ten realms. When he arises, it will appear that he is the savior of the world both physically and spiritually. He will characterize himself as the messiah.
This is why in Revelation he is described as the beast arising out of the earth. He is called the beast, because although he may look human, he will not be strictly speaking human. And earth, in this reference refers to the Church. The Church rises out of humanity as the earth rises from the sea. Antichrist will emerge from the Church, appearing to be the flowering of the Christian faith; the perfected Christian man!

Dan 2:41-43 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters’ clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided… Why? but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay… Clay is the earth that mankind was made from. 42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken… It is the iron in the nation of mankind that will give strength and power to the new antichrist kingdom. So if man is clay, who is the iron? 43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they ( the iron ) shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. (KJV) Because they do not cling together, we will have war with the iron ones. Rev 6:2-4 “And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.” This would appear to be a world war. “And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.” This appears to be civil war. Here we see that the forces shall not cleave/cling to one another. In fact they appear to war with each other.
So what is this other seed that mingles with the seed of mankind? Speaking to satan God said, “I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel.” Gen 3:15 Clearly we can see that satan has a seed. If Jesus Christ came from the seed of God, then the antichrist will come from the seed of satan. So where does the seed of satan come from? Gen 6:4-5 “There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, ( the clay ) and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. ( the giants of ancient legends ) And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
I purpose (sic) that the iron that gives the beast empire it’s power is the governing force of the fallen angels (the Eqyptians believed their Pharoah had iron -bja- in his bones because he was a god.) and the military force of the giants who have been documented coming back to Israel in 1999. The Jews feel that the Nephilim giants will return before the coming of their Messiah. “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” So what was it like in the days of Noah? Giants roamed the land and every imagination of the thoughts of mankind’s heart was evil continually. There is historic evidence that that the “Star gods/Fallen Angles came down, mated with all the women, and ruled over mankind. The star gods acted as the governing council while the giants made war with all peoples around them. There is also evidence that they cannibalized mankind. “For nation ( iron ) shall rise against nation ( clay ), and ( satan’s ) kingdom against ( man’s ) kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.” Matt 24:7-8 “Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots, with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.” Ezek 39:20 The word mighty is used for men of war and the Nephilim giants. Notice that the above scripture clearly shows two separate groups of mighty men. One human, and the other the seed of satan.
