    Um, typically, Britain is interpreted to be the lion in discussions of the end times. Never the dragon. Russia is the bear, and so on.

    The dragon was likely used as a battle symbol because of its reputed fierceness and tenacity. Dragons were immortal, according to legend, and undoubtedly it was use to let the enemy know that this army of men would not be cowardly or soft, but brutal and enduring. It was meant to scare the foe, just like today, we name our sports teams after fierce animals like bears, tigers, lions, etc.

    Since it has been the symbol of Wales for so many centuries (pracitcally since Jesus walked the face of the earth, and Wales isn't known for having a large army, I doubt that it has any significance to the end times.

    dragons, lions, birds of fire (phoenix) were all power symbols used in times of the Dark Ages (Medievil Times) they were to symbolise power, strength, wealth, and influence on the land. Dragons were ment ot be large powerful relentlas and ruthless creatures in all its forms full of knowledge and magic, which scared the common man.

    It would not suprise me if you found other kings whom also used dragons as symbols of there flags or coat of arms.

    In accordance with normal practice, Prince William has been given his own Coat of Arms to mark his 18th birthday. The design is derived from the bearings of his father, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, with an identifying addition evolved from the Arms used by his mother, the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

    There are a lot of web sites where they try to prove that prince charles or prince williams is THE anti christ. People get nuts with that kinda stuff. They offer lots of speculation and no proof.

    The dragon in the bible is usually a symbol for the serpent or Satan.

    I believe that the Anglo Saxon monarch is defiantly one of the 10 tribes. It is a horn in the beast (actually two horns, the Anglos and the Saxons:D) but the dragon however is separate to these and it is Satan.


    I have heard that prince Charles sits in the throne of David though??? Anyone else heard that???

    Just a bit of historical trivia;

    The British monarch was German and couldn’t even speak English in the 1600s and they lived in Germany. Their name was Hanover and it was changed to Windsor to sound British after the war.

    I think prince Charles has much more to do with the serpent and the future than I care to mention or talk about.

    THUNDER,
    Mark those few words about Charles because that’s all I am game enough to say.

    I agree that the dragon is Satan. In Revelation, read where it talks about "the dragon" fighting against Michael and his angels. I don't think it represents a country or anything.

    God bless :)

    The beast will receive his power from the dragon.

    Revelation 12:2-4 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
    7
    And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
    8
    And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
    9
    And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.


    Revelation 12:16-17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

    Revelation 13:1-3 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority


    Revelation 13:3-5 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?


    Revelation 20:1-3 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,




    HI THUNDER,
    the serpent is the deciever of the brethren.

    he is satan. the red dragon.

    the red dragon is most definatly satan manipulating the world govts. to do his bidding.

    the dragon is satan and the beast is the ancient germanic tribes , which are Europe and america and her allies in todays world.

    I laughed out loud when I first heard about Charles being the AC. I still chuckle when I think about it. Charles doesn't have the personality to be the AC. He doesn't have the charisma, the public support, the power, nor the influence to accomplish the things necessary to be the AC. I suppose all things are possible, and that under some bizarre circumstances Chuckie could do a complete turn around. Bu I don't consider Charles to be a serious contender.

    I know what you mean Willis, but it is still interesting, I mean the Coat of Arms, and then combining that with the Flag of Wales having the Red Dragon. How powerful would a guy have to be to come in on a platform of PEACE?? And don't forget, he will suffer a fatal head would, and rise to life again, probably after three days, who knows?? It will be at that time, that he will receive his power, when he is indwelt by the dragon (Satan). The anti-christ will just suddenly come up from no-where, totally unsuspected. It is very possible that he could be the one. But still, as I said before, J. Carlos is my first choice. See ya !!

    ---------How powerful would a guy have to be to come in on a platform of PEACE??--------------------------

    He wouldn't necessarily have to be a heavy hitter in the political arena, but he'd still have to have the personality and charisma to get himself into the position to become the AC.

    If we really want to have fun speculating on this England theme I believe we'd be much more productive discussing Prince William. He's a young, good looking fellow, his mother was very popular and worked towards world peace. Much of the symbols that surround Charles can also be applied to William, and the death of William's mother gives him a tragic life with which more people can identify and sympathize. The connection of Dianna in a love relationship with a prominent Muslim could also provide an opportunity to bridge the differences with the muslim countries.

    From my study of scripture I see Satan attempting to counterfeit what God has already done. If this holds true we might expect the AC to be a fairly young charismatic leader (in imitation of Christ). I also believe that the secular jews will accept the AC as the promised messiah. If so he will by necessity have to in some way fulfill many of the prophecies which Jesus fulfilled.
