“And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD. And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar.”(Gen. 10:8-10)
A plain reading of Scripture records that “Cush begat Nimrod.” (Gen. 10:8; repeated in 1 Chron. 1:10.) No frills, no embellishments, just a simple statement of fact: Nimrod was the literal descendent of Cush; the grandson of Ham and the great-grandson of Noah. He was a man, NOT a Nephilim, nor a pagan god. He was NOT a pagan god that will resurrect from the grave in the last days in order to become the Antichrist. The Bible speaks nothing about this. Nonetheless, this dark myth is currently being perpetrated on unsuspecting Christians by many PPP leaders.
In order to establish the claim that the mythological god Apollo will rise again (which requires the presuppositions that Apollo was also the man Nimrod who also had to be a Nephilim), the PPP teachers borrow heavily from some of the blackest Satanic sources including The Egyptian Book of the Dead, the psychic Edgar Cayce, the occultist Manly Hall, leading Theosophist (Anthroposophist) Rudolf Steiner,Freemasonry, ancient myths from heathen idolatry, astrology, and non-Canonical, Gnostic and apocryphal sources. Rejecting these occult teachings outright should be a no-brainer! But the fact is that these PPP leaders are very popular, and very few, if any, evangelical leaders are raising the necessary serious questions.
To repeat—these sensationally seductive ideas do not come from the Word of God, but from troublesome outside sources that are tragically gaining popularity in recent times—within the evangelical church. A vivid example of these falsehoods pertaining to ancient Nimrod comes from PPP adherent and author, Rob Skiba. The inspiration for his fantastic speculations of Nimrod come from the apocryphal book of Jasher, not the Bible. This Jasher -inspired story deviates far from anything you’ve ever read in Scripture. Yet note that Skiba states that Genesis 25 doesn’t make any sense without it!
In the context of the Jasher account, that story makes a whole lot more now sense [sic] doesn’t it? I mean think about it. Without Jasher, the story in Genesis 25 makes no sense at all…. After reading Jasher, you now completely understand what is going on and why. Esau had just killed the king of the world!
By the way, the “valuable garments” that Nimrod had, “with which he prevailed over the whole land” were the original garments God made for Adam and Eve back in the garden… so here Esau has chopped off Nimrod’s head and stolen his “magic garments.” The rest of Nimrod’s “mighty men” were after him now. Esau came home famished from a very busy day! So, when Jacob says he wants his birthright, Esau basically said, “Look. What do I care about my birthright? I just killed King Nimrod! I’m a dead man. His warriors are probably coming for me as we speak. Just give me something to eat!” Esau was extremely vulnerable here and Jacob totally took advantage of the situation for his own selfish gain….
The Fifth Trumpet blows, and the spirit of Apollyon (Apollo) ascends back into its former host body – Nimrod. Thus, empowered by the dragon himself, the Anti-Christ will rise. And his first order of business will be to kill the Two Witnesses! (p. 135, 258)

Apollo: The “Masonic ‘Messiah’”?
Horn continues his rewriting of Scripture by weaving his own fantasies into the text, along with a heavy dose of pagan mythology, Freemasonry, and other extra-biblical sources. He goes through great contortions to “prove” that Nimrod morphed into the god Apollo—and will return as the Antichrist—even citing hidden codes in the Great Seal of the United States as evidence. Notice Horn’s unorthodox method of interpreting Scripture:
In the New Testament, the identity of the god Apollo, repeat-coded in theGreat Seal of the United States as the Masonic “messiah” who returns to rule the earth, is the same spirit—verified by the same name—that will inhabit the political leader of the end-times New World Order. According to a key prophecy in the book of 2 Thessalonians, the Antichrist will be the progeny or incarnation of the ancient spirit, Apollo. Second Thessalonians 2:3 warns: “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition [Apoleia, Apollyon, Apollo].” Numerous scholarly and classical works identify “Apollyon” as the god “Apollo”—the Greek deity “of death and pestilence,” and Webster’s Dictionary points out that “Apollyon” was a common variant of “Apollo” until recent history…. Accordingly, the name Apollo turns up in ancient literature with the verb apollymi or apollyo (destroy), and scholars including W. R. F. Browning believe the apostle Paul may have identified the god Apollo as the “spirit of Antichrist” operating behind the persecuting Roman emperor, Domitian, who wanted to be recognized as “Apollo incarnate” in his day. [bold added]
Horn not only embellishes the Scripture, but does so by putting false prophecies in the mouth of the Apostle Paul. Paul was NOT “identifying the pagan god Apollo” in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 and was NOT recording a “key prophecy” saying that the Antichrist “will be the progeny or incarnation of the ancient spirit, Apollo.”
(And as usual, this sadly is where all false prophecy pundits seem to take us; away from looking toward the return of our Lord)
A 2ND COMING of the Antichrist?
According to these PPP leaders, it is the Antichrist who is coming again. Their focus is not on Jesus’s Second Coming. One seldom hears anything about our risen, resurrected Saviour Jesus Christ. Rather, these fellows have an intensive fascination with the Antichrist, embodied in the mythological deity of Apollo or Osiris, who they claim is really Nimrod, who is going to be “reanimated.”
