Prince Of Princes

And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. Daniel 8:25
 
This verse from the book of Daniel was fulfilled in Jewish history, but it also awaits its ultimate fulfillment in the end time. It refers to Antiochus IV, Epiphanes, an evil Greek ruler who persecuted the Jews, as well as the Antichrist of the last days, who is described in the book of Revelation.
 
Antiochus tried to force the Jewish people to adopt Greek culture, even going so far as to erect an altar to the pagan Greek god Zeus in the temple. His atrocities led to rebellion by the Jews under the leadership of the Maccabees during the period between the Old and New Testament. Antiochus died in disgrace following his defeat by these Jewish zealots.
 
The ultimate earthly evil focus will be the Antichrist, who stands against Christ, His church, and their influence for good in the world. But this evil person will be overcome by Christ (see Revelation 14:9-11; 19:20), just as Antiochus met defeat in his time. No earthly power is able to stand against the Prince of Princes.
