Daniel 11, Part 2

If Daniel 11 shows us anything, it shows us that God is intimately involved in humanity’s affairs is actively directs things to the climax of this age so that His purposes – all of them will be accomplished – while still allowing humanity to have some semblance of free will, in spite of the fall of man.

Daniel Chapter 11, Part 1

Before I get into that chapter, I’d like to point out something. There are several schools of thought related to the entirety of the book of Daniel, including chapter eleven. As with everything else biblical, critics have come out of the woodwork to either downplay, attempt to negate, or even change the way they want us to look at this eleventh chapter of Daniel. In a broad brush stroke, some of the “concerns” these so-called higher critics have is applied to the entire book of Daniel, not just specific chapters, like chapter eleven.

Bible Warns of Apostasy and Persecution: Birth Pang 5

In truth though, the Bible has predicted that the world will become one and will be ruled by one individual. This individual – the Antichrist – will turn out to be Satan’s man of the hour, his spiritual “son.” Don’t forget also that God is going to allow this so that Satan can do whatever he can to bring his promises of Isaiah 14 to fruition. Because of this, God will allow Satan to create a counterfeit trinity as it were, with Satan as the “Father,” Antichrist as the “Son,” and the False Prophet of Revelation 17 as the “Holy Spirit.” It will be Satan’s time to shine and he will be given permission to use as many signs and wonders as necessary to deceive the entire world.

It’s Political Season in Case You Aren’t Aware

Satan is the god of this age (2 Corinthians 4:4). He is the ruler of the powers of the air (Ephesians 2:2). With God’s permission, he has designed a system for which he will one day gain full control and insert his spiritual son into the mix as the final lawless ruler of the fourth revised Roman Empire, as seen in Daniel 2, 7, 9, and 11. It is bound to happen. There is nothing we can do to stop it as it is written in the “stone” of God’s Word.

I Will Be Like the Most High, Part 6

Folks, you may be one who needs to find a balance between a Christian’s involvement in the political arena and evangelism. I would hope that you would err on the side of greater evangelism and less on politics. God’s plan is written in stone. It is unchangeable just as His plan to create Israel and bring forth from that nation a Messiah, a Savior was unchangeable. This Savior would make salvation available to all who would come, believing, trusting in the Name that stands alone, rising high above all others, “so that at the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,” (Philippians 2:10).

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 19

As we learn in Daniel 9:27, peace is brokered by the Antichrist (the first Seal of Revelation 6) and the world celebrates! True peace for at least seven years! However, by the middle of the “week” or final seventh year, Antichrist shows his true face by replicating what Antiochus Epiphanes IV did in 168 BC. At that point, Antichrist will take his seat in the rebuilt Jewish Temple and desecrate it, recreating an “abomination of desolation” that Jesus spoke about in Matthew 24. This abomination of desolation will be real, it will be physical, and it will be visible. In fact, it is very likely that seconds after Antichrist goes into the Holy of Holies, that act of defiance will be televised throughout the world and across the Internet. At this point, the Jews who put their faith in him (for peace), will realize what they did and run to the hills, where God will protect that remnant for the final three and a half years of the Tribulation. This is all in the book of Revelation.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 18

Verse 41 tells us that this king – the Antichrist – will invade the “Beautiful Land,” which is another term for Israel (see also Daniel 8:9). Antichrist has ultimately wanted to control Israel and the Temple Mount specifically. Notice that the text tells us that “Many countries will fall…” just like countries fell during the time of Hitler. In fact, every time there has been a change of “ownership” from one empire to another, those lands “fell” from the previous ruler’s control into the hands of the new rulers. This coming series of conflicts toward the end of the Tribulation will be nothing new. It’s the way the “game of thrones” has always worked in history.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 17

Notice that even at the very end of “time,” which refers to man-led history, the king of the South and the king of the North will still exist. This time, their common enemy will be Antichrist though. The king of the South still refers to the area due south of Israel, which is Egypt (though it may have a different name by then, the geography remains the same) and the king of the North will still be housed in the area that today is still known as Syria. These two kings will decide it’s time for a mutiny. They don’t like what he’s doing and they certainly don’t like being under his command and answering to him.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 16

In this day and age, being gay is something that homosexuals wear as a code of honor quite visibly. They’re proud of it, though no one ever gets to have a parade where they evidence being proud of their “straightness.” Gay pride is something that Satan has created and built so that all things will come together when his spiritual “son,” the Antichrist takes up position of rule over the coming one-world system. I think it’s very plausible that the reason Antichrist will have no desire for women is due to the fact that he will be gay. As noted in our last installment, since women can often be a distraction to powerful men, Satan won’t want that to be in the way, which might create the opportunity for Antichrist to fail. Satan will need Antichrist to be as supernaturally focused as possible.

Prophecies of Daniel 11, Part 14

Satan wanted man in order to fall to prove God wrong and to gain control of earth and this realm. This is what occurred with the fall, giving Satan the title deed to earth (from Adam, who actually had it beforehand). The entire unfolding drama of redemption was not simply to save and restore humanity, but to restore all of God’s Creation. This is why Revelation 5 is so very important. It’s not just some measure of pageantry taking place in heaven. It’s pageantry involving the process by which Jesus (the Lamb) is seen to have successfully regained the title deed to earth (the seven-sealed scroll). In heaven, as John watched, nothing could move forward until the Lamb was found to have been “worthy” of regaining that title deed. Without it, Satan would be victor.
