This is the prophecy of Isaiah concerning Antichrist And when that time had passed, Berial, the great
angel, the prince of this world, Berial will descend in the form of man an impious king, the murderer of his mother, king of this world. And he will pluck up from amongst the twelve apostles the plant that they had planted, and it will fall into his hands. And all the powers of the world will do the will of the angel Berial, the impious king. At his word, the sun will shine in the darkness of the night, and the moon will appear at the eleventh hour. He will do all his pleasures he will ill-treat the Well-Beloved, and will say to him, Lo am God, and before me there is none other. And all the world will believe in him. And sacrifice will be offered to him, and worship of adoration, saying, He alone is God, and there is none other. Then the greater number of those gathered together to receive the Well-Beloved will turn aside to Berial Who by his power will work miracles in the cities and in the country And everywhere shall table be spread for him. His domination shall be for three years seven months and twenty-seven days."
And Manasseh turned aside his heart to serve Belial; for the angel of lawlessness, who is the ruler of this world, is Belial, whose name is Matanbuchus. — (Ascension of Isaiah 2:4)
Manasseh reigned in the room of his father, and was cruel tyrant. He worshipped idols, and sought to make Isaiah partake in his idolatry. And when he could not succeed, he sawed him asunder with saw of wood. And whilst Isaiah was being cut asunder, Melekira stood up and accused him, and all the lying prophets were present, and they showed great joy, and they mocked him. And Belial said to Isaiah Confess that all thou hast said is false, and that the ways of Manasseh are good and just. Confess that the ways of Melekira, and of those that are with him, are good.' He spake thus to him, as the saw entered into his flesh.
Then they seized the prophet, and they sawed him with saw of wood, Isaiah, son of Amos. And Manasseh and Melekira, and the lying prophets, and the princes of Israel, and all the people, be held his execution. Now before that the execution was accomplished, he said to the prophets who had followed him Fly to Tyre and Sidon, for the Lord hath given the cup to me alone.' And whilst the saw cut into his flesh Isaiah uttered no complaint and shed no tears but he ceased not to commune with the Holy Spirit till the saw had cloven him to the middle of his body."
Isaiah thought, If I excuse myself, I shall only increase his guilt and not save myself so he answered not word, but pronounced the Incommunicable Name, and cedar-tree opened, and he disappeared within it. Then Manasseh ordered, and they took the cedar, and sawed it in two lengthways and when the saw reached his mouth, he died.
