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.

It’s what the best con men are made of, with their ability to have absolutely no concern for others to the point that they will deceive them out of house or home and then move onto the next victim.

Prophesies of Daniel 11, Part 7

Unfortunately for Antiochus, Rome did not want to have to deal with these types of problems and even though the Roman Empire did not officially begin until approximately 27 BC, elements of Rome were gaining power. The Roman Empire wasn’t built or installed over night. It took time, like any other faction that ultimately became an empire, whether the Babylonian, the Medo-Persian, the Grecian or the Roman. It took time to build momentum and power that allowed them to become ruling empires over large portions of geographical areas in that portion of the world.
