Jeremiah 13:23 Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
So the leopardskin imagery does fit in after all. The leopard symbolizes Nimrod the Ethiopian, who symbolizes Babel, the city he founded, so that wherever the leopard is used symbolically in scripture it points to Nimrod, now as a representative of the Antichrist to come.
Somebody (no author is identified) put together a website that tries to connect all the dots, and it's interesting enough to think about:
The tomb of Nimrod is not known as Nimrod's tomb, but is knwn as the tomb of Osiris.. . The special thing about Osiris was he was represented in Egypt as being both the son and husband of his mother. It is also known that Nimrod is the son and husband of his mother. Nimrod had a son named Ninus which was known as a resurrection of Nimrod. Ninus also married his own mother. So both Osiris and Nimrod are known as being both the son and husband of their mother. . . . Nimrod means literally "The subduer of the leopard." . . . Osiris was also represented by leopards becuase he was always arrayed in leopard's skins. So both Osiris and Nimrod were known for leopards and hunting. . . .Also for Osiris it was an Egyptian tradition that "Osiris was black." Egyptians were already dark skinned so for this to be mentioned meant he was much more darker than the ordinary dark skin. At Thebes in one of the tombs of the kings there is a drawing of Osiris which shows his face and hands as being jet black.
This site has some pictures of the wall paintings in Tutankhamen's Burial chamber at Thebes with Osiris shown as very dark-skinned as said above (Osiris is the one on the left):
Here's another picture, from the BBC, showing Osiris with blue skin, apparently a convention for black skin in Egypt just as it is with depictions of the Indian Krishna:
So both Osiris and Nimrod would have to be extremely dark skinned.Page Three, Are They Digging Up Nimrod?
Overall it can be concluded since Osiris and Nimord were both from the same time and are both known for the same things they must both be the same person! So the archaeologists digging up Osiris are digging up Nimod, and the Egyptian stories about Osiris are about Nimrod!
. . . in the Bible it says the coming of the Son of Man would be like in the days of Noah.
God saved Noah and his family before the flood just like how He will save Christians before the tribulation. Now after he saved Noah, man became corrupted again with one of its main leaders being Nimrod. This is just like how in the tribulation the antichrist will lead man in corruption. . . .
. . .Overall Nimrod is represented as a leopard three times in the bible and the leopard is symbolized as the antichrist also. . . .The antichrist also dies in the middle of the tribulation, but is brought back by the False Prophet in Revelation 13.
Also Nimrod was the king of Babylon in his time. In Revelation 18:21 it says: "Then a strong angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea saying, So will Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence, and will not be found any longer." . . .Babylon is suppose to represent the false religious system headed by the Antichirst.
Since he comes at all this from a different direction than I do I find this confirming, and there are some other things to think about in it too.
Hislop connects all the Nimrod-originated religions with the Roman Church, however.
