Moving on in our study of Daniel 7 and Revelation 13, we talked mainly about the ten horns/ten kings of Revelation 13 & 17 in our last article/episode. With everything that’s happening in our world, it has become clear that “peace” is a figment of the imagination and always seemingly within reach, but never really reaching it. The ten kings that will rise in Revelation 13/17 during the Tribulation will be dealing with a world that is “one” geopolitically.

By the time these ten specific kings rise to take their place in future history, the world will already have become one in mindset. As I’ve stated a number of times previously, I personally believe this global unity will mainly be the result of the aftermath of the Rapture, which I also believe will occur at some point prior to the official start of the coming seven-year Tribulation period. Of course, what I try to emphasize whenever I speak of the PreTrib Rapture is the fact that we have absolutely no idea how bad things will get before it occurs. We cannot bank on specific dates/timing because God has not provided that information. All discussion concerning specific dates/times is conjecture and guesswork.

This is the main reason for high gas prices now and increasing inflation. Gas prices affect everything in the economy.

If we knew for instance, that the Tribulation was going to officially begin next month on a certain day, then we could argue that the Rapture would happen prior to that particular day. But we cannot do that because that information has not been provided to us, in spite of what many prognosticators have said in the past and continue to imply today. I’ve said I wish they’d stop doing that. Just because things are heating up and it appears as though the world is being plunged into war again, that, in and of itself does not tell us the Rapture is closer. In one sense of course, it is closer just as each new day brings us a day closer to it, but that doesn’t really help us.

I believe it is far better for Christians to get used to the idea that things will progressively worsen as the world rushes toward Tribulation so that preparations and precautions can be made. Even though I believe the Bible teaches the PreTrib Rapture, as I’ve stated numerous times before, it is very important to understand what is happening and to take steps to mitigate against it where and when we can. Who would not keep their car(s) filled up with fuel? Who would not keep extra fuel on hand for generators, etc.? Who would think it unwise to buy extra food and other supplies needed all the time? Who would essentially ignore what is happening in society believing that they’ll be “raptured any moment now”? That’s not the best way to approach things, in my opinion.

Because we know things are very likely going to get worse, we can assume several things.

  • inflation will continue to rise
  • interest rates will likely rise
  • food and other products will continue to experience shortages
  • in general, it will cost much more to live as we have previously lived
  • Christians and conservatives will become more of a target for hate from the Left
  • traditional biblical values will be increasingly be attacked and thrown out
  • Christians and conservatives will increasingly be pushed to the fringes of society

If these things bother you, you’re certainly not alone, but we need to remember that all of this was foretold. We just happen to likely be the generation in which we see the fulfillment of biblical prophecy related to these end times. Of course, the good news is that Jesus’ physical return is closer as well.

With war happening between Russia and Ukraine and not knowing how long that will last or how bad it will get (apparently, Putin attacked a nuclear plant in Ukraine), it seems that things are not looking good. Biden gave his state of the union address recently and it was a flop by nearly all standards, unless you are a dyed-in-the-wool Leftist who wants to see the destruction of the USA and other countries so that this world will become one geopolitically. Of course, what’s fascinating is that Biden started highlighting things he wants to do and sounded an awful lot like what Trump wanted to do and did. But now that Biden is saying some of those same things, the Left is happy. When Trump did it, “Orange man bad!” It makes zero sense but we’re not dealing with people who are logical. They largely go by feelings, which explains most of it.

It’s all a bit disingenuous though because Biden suffers from dementia, which is an asset to the globalists using him as a puppet. They don’t have to worry about him trying to make his own decisions. Putin has all of his wits about him and clearly wants to own Ukraine. Who knows the real reason? Maybe he is today’s Hitler, I don’t know. Both Putin and the president of Ukraine are evil people. They’re either globalists themselves or working in tandem with globalists to achieve globalist ends. I seriously doubt that we will be able to do anything to destroy globalist efforts because it appears as though the timing is coming together to allow the final global kingdom to be built at last. I certainly could be wrong. I’m simply trying to look at the whole picture, not just parts of it.

Because of everything going on, it appears the GOP may have the edge in the coming midterms. But, will that change anything? It really hasn’t in the past, so I don’t assume it will change anything in the future either. There’s always the chance that new GOP candidates are RINOs, pretending to be truly conservative, then when they get into office, their true colors start to show. Project Veritas already uncovered one such candidate, among many other notable gotchas that MSM refuses to deal with. Aside from that, it appears to me that the voting system is entirely broken and a new one is most likely in the works. This is how the final global kingdom of Daniel 2 will arrive. Often before something new is birthed, there’s a great amount of upheaval and pain.

People keep talking about the midterms as the light at the end of the tunnel and that we simply need to vote in the right people. But as long as numerous states continuing using Dominion voting machines, I’m skeptical. If only one of those machines can be hacked, then the whole system falls. This, I believe, is what we experienced in 2020 and there are many experts talking about that. In fact, some high profile politicians are now calling for the 2020 results to be decertified based on the information they have. This is not being done because they don’t like Joe Biden. This is being done because of the evidence they are seeing. In some cases, the voter rolls have thousands and thousands more people than actual registered voters. The Dems have long fought against cleaning up the voter rolls, removing dead people or those who have moved to other locales. They say that those who want the rolls cleaned up are racists, bigots, and don’t want blacks to vote. They say the same thing about voter ID. Yet, so many places in the USA require photo IDs, it’s difficult to believe somehow poor people cannot obtain them. That’s ridiculous, yet that’s what the Left would like us to believe.

But in spite of all that and the war drums pounding along with the turmoil in many parts of the world, it is interesting that Emanuel Macron recently issued his continuing support for Israel and his desire that they maintain control over the Temple Mount. He does not believe Israel is an apartheid nation simply because Muslims are in positions of power there in government and elsewhere. How could a nation actually be apartheid if people who don’t like Israel are in positions of power? However, not to be outdone by Macron, Vladimir Putin ordered an airstrike on a Holocaust memorial in Ukraine. Macron also wants a powerful European army created and sees himself as Commander-in-Chief of that army.

In Daniel 7:9-10, we see something interesting.

I watched till thrones were put in place,
And the Ancient of Days was seated;
His garment was white as snow,
And the hair of His head was like pure wool.
His throne was a fiery flame,
Its wheels a burning fire;
A fiery stream issued
And came forth from before Him.
A thousand thousands ministered to Him;
Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him.
The court was seated,
And the books were opened.

Daniel had just described what he saw up to verse 8, about the beast he saw speaking pompous words; “…And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words (8b).”

So here’s this beast who was very human-like (eyes of a man, mouth, etc.), and these pompous words he speaks will be motivated by his spiritual union with Satan, his spiritual father. Daniel tells us this, then describes what he sees next, this time in the heavens. Thrones were placed and the Ancient of Days (Jehovah God), took His seat. Why does He take His seat? Because He is getting ready to judge. In fact, the entire description of Him reveals that He is dressed for judgment and ready to issue His judgments.

What Daniel saw was the throne room of heaven, the very seat of God. Multitudes ministered and stood before Him and the court was seated and the books opened. Time is of the essence for Satan at this point as I’m sure he will see it when it occurs as well. This should also inform us that God’s will is always being accomplished. He will allow people to make decisions they believe are the best decisions to make (for or against God), and God can still very easily work with those decisions to ensure that His will be done.

Daniel 7:11-12 return us to this world with the events happening here.

I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame. As for the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time.

Fascinating, isn’t it? God’s judgment destroys the beast, who is then tossed mercilessly into the Lake of Fire. The other seven remaining kings were deposed, yet were not killed at this point.

Immediately following this bit of information, we read the following from Daniel 7:13-14:

I was watching in the night visions,
And behold, One like the Son of Man,
Coming with the clouds of heaven!
He came to the Ancient of Days,
And they brought Him near before Him.
Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom,
That all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion,
Which shall not pass away,
And His kingdom the one
Which shall not be destroyed.

Here we essentially see the official transfer of all things. Remember, He currently sits at the right hand of the Father. Certainly, Jesus reigns with the Father, but there is coming a time when He will reign on earth as the God/Man, perfectly performing the glorious will of God the Father. These verses give a nod to the coming Millennial Kingdom over which Jesus will reign for 1,000 years. Why does He have to physically return to this earth to reign if He is already reigning from heaven’s throne? Simply because this world’s religious leaders rejected Him as Messiah. They said, “Away with you!” and demanded He be killed as a criminal. The Son of Man, who was absolutely spotless and sinless was treated as though He was the worst sinner ever born. He was unceremoniously accused, beaten and mercilessly murdered because of jealousy. In essence, He was put out of this world.

When He returns, He will do so in force and in judgment and we will return with Him in His train. He will set up His physical Kingdom in full view of all Creation, in order to prove beyond doubt that He and He alone is the rightful heir and Ruler of this planet. In fact, His rule extends to all Creation and beyond. His Kingdom “shall not pass away and His Kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.”

We will discuss Daniel’s reaction to these visions he saw in our next episode so please join me then.
