whoso readeth, let him understand
Compiled by Daniel Lane from the writings of Father David
VISION: Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him. (Dan.11:1)
INTERPRETATION: SO WHO’S TALKING AT THE BEGINNING OF THE 11TH CHAPTER?
If you go back to Chapter 10 5th verse it says, “a certain man clothed in linen whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz. His body also was like the beryl, & his face as the appearance of lightning, & his eyes as lamps of fire‚ & his arms & his feet like in colour to polished brass, & the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.” I MUST SAY, SOME OF THE DESCRIPTION IN HERE SOUNDS ALMOST LIKE IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN JESUS! Well, you can take your choice. Some people think that it was Gabriel, some people think it was Jesus Himself. It sounds a lot like the Revelation description of Jesus, doesn’t it? (Rev.1:13-16)
IN CHAPTER 10 VERSE 21 HOW WOULD YOU INTERPRET THAT, “NOBODY HOLDETH WITH ME IN THESE THINGS.” Certainly‚ especially if it was Jesus, the hosts of Heaven would not have disbelieved Him. If you say that nobody but Michael believes Him, then you’ve got a disagreement in Heaven & either Jesus or Gabriel either one are not being received & not being believed, & that is highly unlikely. Right? So actually the real meaning here is that nobody knows about these things, He hasn’t shared these things with anybody but Michael the Archangel.—Which again sounds like it might be Jesus.
“Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm & to strengthen him.”—The same person from chapter 10, whether Jesus or Gabriel, is still speaking. Remember, there was no chapter division in the original Scriptures. “There is none that holdeth with me in these things‚ but Michael your prince. Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I‚ stood to confirm & to strengthen him.”—Who? He’s talking about Darius the Mede.
DOES THE LORD HAVE INFLUENCE ON PRESIDENTS & KINGS & WORLD LEADERS? He’ll weaken some to get His will done or He’ll strengthen others to get His will done. And at this time it was His will to strengthen the Medo-Persian Kings to make sure that they held the kingdom until Alexander came along. Because there are always lots of people that want to grab the kingdom!
Persia makes war with Greece!
VISION: And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia. (Dan.11:2)
INTERPRETATION: “Three kings‚” Cyrus, Cambyses, and Darius Hystaspes, immediately followed this prophecy before the “fourth,” Xerxes, the richest and most powerful of Persian kings‚ invaded Greece, but was defeated at Salamis (in 480 B.C.). HE SAW THE THREAT‚ APPARENTLY, OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT COMING FROM GREECE‚ SO HE USED HIS GREAT RICHES TO STIR UP ALL AGAINST THE REALM OF GRECIA. That “all” was a pretty big all, 250,000, about all I guess he could stir, which was plenty! In fact‚ they say this is the largest number of men ever put into one battle in the history of the World, 250,000 men in one great battle there in Medo-Persia‚ or actually it occurred largely in what is now Turkey, part of Medo-Persia.
There were other Persian kings after Xerxes, but GOD MUST HAVE CONSIDERED THIS DEFEAT THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR PERSIA, and the beginning of the rise of Greece. Of course, IT STILL PROBABLY LOOKED LIKE PERSIA WAS REALLY SOMETHING PHYSICALLY, and she was, BUT AS FAR AS GOD WAS CONCERNED‚ SHE HAD BEGUN TO DIE.
Mighty king alexander the great!
VISION: And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. (Dan.11:3)
INTERPRETATION: The Persian invasions gave rise to calls for revenge in the Greek city-states, calls that were answered 150 years later when the Macedonians, under Alexander, launched their invasion and conquest of Persia. The primary excuse given for Alexander’s aggression was that it was to avenge the past violation of the Greek homeland. This “mighty king”, Alexander the Great, in only ten years, conquered most of the civilised world, “with great dominion”.
Alexander’s kingdom broken and divided toward the four winds!
VISION: And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity (Children), nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those. (Dan.11:4)
INTERPRETATION: This “mighty king” was also described in a previous vision of Daniel as the “great horn” of “Grecia” (Dan.8:21), who, of course‚ was Alexander the Great, whose great kingdom was divided into four parts: Greece‚ Syria, Turkey and Egypt—divided among his generals and not his children.
South: Egypt, Israel under Ptolemy
West: Greece, Macedonia under Cassander
North: Asia Minor (NW Turkey), Thrace under Lysimachus
East: Syria, Babylon, Persia under Seleucus
This division was anticipated through the four heads of the leopard (Dan7:6) and the four prominent horns on the goat (Dan8:8).” They were never to achieve the same breadth of dominion Alexander had, “not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion”.
VERSE 5-19: I AM NOT GOING TO GET INTO ALL OF THESE DETAILS HERE, there are all kinds of interpretations of this, but it has to do literally with the great wars that were going on, a number of which are mentioned in history, between the remnants of Alexander’s Kingdom, & what was the next great empire to arise? —Rome! Even Cleopatra is mentioned in here, etc. But I don’t think it’s necessarily profitable for us to have to go into all those details‚ because there’s still considerable mystery about it.
ANYHOW, THIS IS A DESCRIPTION OF ALL THE WARS BETWEEN GREECE & ROME, it’s the basics how God looks at it, what’s really behind it & how they even traded women for power. One of the examples, Cleopatra‚ was actually the daughter of the King of Syria, if some of you remember your ancient history. But he married her to the king of Egypt, one of these successors to Alexander, hoping that he could make an alliance with Egypt. Instead of that, she stirred up Egypt against her own father! Think of that! It’s all described in here.
THE ONLY THING WE’RE REALLY INTERESTED IN IN THIS CHAPTER & THE SUBJECT OF OUR SERIES OF STUDIES RIGHT NOW IS THE ANTICHRIST & HIS KINGDOM.
SO THERE ARE ALL THESE BIG BATTLES, MOSTLY BETWEEN GREECE & ROME, ETC. Then he sort of skips way over again. He’s just telling Daniel these interesting facts, because who do you think these facts of these details of that era became very important to?—The Jews, of course! The Jews were always getting kicked around by this empire or that empire. So just like He is telling us now about this coming Antichrist & his kingdom & how to recognise him & the characteristics of it & what’s going to happen in it & all that, he is telling God’s people of that day what was going to happen in the immediate future regarding the wars between Rome & Greece etc.
THEN APPARENTLY HE GETS TO THE POINT WHERE, “THAT’S ENOUGH‚ WE DON’T HAVE TO TELL YOU ANY MORE, I’m just telling you about your immediate future that you & your people would be concerned with‚” & He starts to leap over centuries literally, getting down toward the End. So I prefer, if you don’t mind, to save time & to stress & emphasise & dwell on the things we need to know now, not what the Jews needed to know then. Do you get the point? The first half of this chapter were all things that Jews were probably going by for the next several years, especially the wars between Rome & Greece, & these remnants of the Grecian Empire. If you remember anything about history, that’s what happened after Alexander’s Empire broke up! They were constantly having wars with each other & then having wars with Rome, etc., etc., etc.
In (Daniel 8:9-11) we read ”And out of one of them (The 4 land divisions of Alexanders Kingdom) came forth a little horn (ANTICHRIST), which waxed exceeding great‚ toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.” And it waxed great, even to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and of the stars to the ground, and stamped upon them. Yea, he magnified himself even to the Prince of the host, and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of the sanctuary was cast down.
“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.” And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power (but “the dragon” or devil “gave him his power”—Rev.13:2): and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days. (Dan.8:23-26)
Here we have not only the GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION FROM WHICH THE ANTICHRIST (this little horn) WILL COME‚ BUT ALSO THE TIME OF HIS COMING! “Out of one” of the four divisions of Alexander’s kingdom in the “latter time” a “little horn”‚ or a “king of fierce countenance”, shall “come forth”.
There’s only one possible location of one the four divisions of Alexander’s Empire from which this horn could have come if he is to wax strong toward the South & toward the East & toward the pleasant land, & that is Egypt! The only part or division of Alexander’s Empire which lay in such a position as to make these other directions possible was Egypt.
IN THE SPRING OF 1965, VIRGINIA BRANDT BERG RECEIVED THE NOW FAMOUS “WARNING PROPHECY” OF THE GREAT CONFUSION AND ITS AUTHOR WHICH WERE TO ARISE OUT OF EGYPT:

ALSO THE GREAT AMERICAN MYSTIC AND PROPHETESS‚ JEANE DIXON, FORESAW JUST SUCH A YOUNG MAN ARISING OUT OF EGYPT TO RULE THE WORLD this was confirmed by Jeanne Dixon’s book‚ “A Gift of Prophecy”, in which she related a vision which showed a young man coming out of Egypt who was to rule the world! In her later book, “My Life and Prophecies”, a revision of the older edition, she interprets this young man as being the coming world dictator known as the Antichrist in the Bible! She also sees in this young man, the figure of the Pharaoh, Amenhotep, with his queen, Nefertiti, the heretic who eventually turned the world from its former gods to worship himself, and she sees that ancient prototype pair presenting this modern son and descendant as a fit and final heir to their rebel throne as the final Antichrist world ruler so often predicted in the Bible.
NOT ONLY THIS, SHE ALSO SEES HIM WITH SUCH INFINITE AND SATANIC WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE AND HYPNOTIC PERSONALITY, THAT ALL THE WORLD WILL WONDER AFTER HIM, as predicted in Revelation 13, and particularly the youth of the world will idolise him and flock after him. At the end‚ she sees him leading them up a road to a point of decision and division where they can either follow him to the left or take the straight and narrow to the right. She even sees him wearing a flowing robe, She sees him leading them into darkness and destruction in the end. But then she notices some small groups of faithful young pilgrims leaving him and climbing over difficult obstacles along the narrow path that led to the right and their Heavenly Home with Christ.
NOW IF EGYPT COULD BE THAT KINGDOM FROM WHICH THE LITTLE HORN IS TO SPRING, let’s see if the description of the three directions of its expansion or “waxing” fits.
EGYPT HAS LOTS OF ROOM FOR EXPANSION “toward the south“—the whole continent of Africa; “toward the east“—lots of room for growth toward Asia; and “toward the pleasant land“‚ which is Israel (Ps.106:24 and Jer.3:19)
If he is going to expand toward the 1) south, 2) east, and 3) the pleasant land, he MUST BE LOCATED SOUTH OF THE PLEASANT LAND, because if he were north of it, the pleasant land would be south and the prophecy would have given only two directions, south and east; but instead it gives three separate directions here.
For these reasons we are pretty well convinced that the ANTICHRIST WILL COME OUT OF THE SOUTHERN SECTION OF EGYPT, which, remember, includes not only Egypt, but also Libya and all of northern Africa.
Somehow when you find out about him & his history‚ somewhere, somehow he came from Egypt. I believe it! You can fight for Syria or you can fight for Israel or Turkey or Greece if you want to, but I’m rootin’ for Egypt as his point of origin!
Now In this chapter the AC is CALLED THE “KING OF THE NORTH” (Dan.11:40) You say! how could the Antichrist arise out of both Egypt and be King of the North (Russia), He may originate in Egypt. But if he’s going to come from the North, he’s going to have to go North first, which will mean he will have to go to Russia & become powerful enough in Russia to be the King of the North & eventually invade the South, from which he came.
He may originate in Egypt. But if he’s going to come from the North, he’s going to have to go North first, which will mean he will have to go to Russia & become powerful enough in Russia to be the King of the North & eventually invade the South, from which he came.
IT’S A RATHER VAGUE, MYSTERIOUS WAY OF BEATING AROUND THE BUSH & GETTING BACK TO THAT CONCLUSION, but that’s the only way you can reconcile the two theories & the actual Scriptures, as far as I can see, & that is that he somehow or other originated down here in one of these four divisions of the Grecian Empire. It’s very unlikely that he originated in Greece or Turkey, & quite unlikely that he originated in Syria. It’s more likely & many other prophecies & confirmations have come from the Lord that he is somehow originally from Egypt.
GOD HIMSELF IS GOING TO PERMIT AND ALLOW THE ANTICHRIST TO RISE TO POWER, “For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God”, (Rom.13:1) and the Antichrist will do the world good at first. He will be just like Satan, who started out as a servant of God but then became exalted in self-worship and lost God’s blessing. As long as he’s doing the will of God, why couldn’t we work with him? This is the way many prophets operated‚ from Joseph with Egypt’s Pharaoh to Daniel with Babylon’s Nebuchadnezzar, plus many others.
U.S.A. the greatest raiser of taxes in the World!
VISION: Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle. (Dan.11:20)
INTERPRETATION: The United States of America became the greatest‚ most powerful nation, the most powerful empire‚ king or kingdom on Earth! I mean, if the U.S.A. is famous for anything, it’s famous for raising taxes! She’s the greatest raiser of taxes in the World!
IF VERSE 21 IS ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST & THE BEGINNING OF HIS RISE & TAKEOVER, THEN VERSE 20 MUST BE ABOUT THE POWER WHICH IMMEDIATELY PRECEDES THE ANTICHRIST in this modern day & period of history after the fall of the British Empire. The British Empire started to fall with World War 1, after the days of Queen Victoria, & the United States & Russia accelerated the rest of its fall with World War 2, along with Hitler, they say he had a lot to do with it. They blame it all on Hitler, poor guy. I don’t think he deserved as much blame as he got, because the U.S. & Russia were just as guilty & Britain was just as guilty.
BUT BRITAIN WAS THE GREATEST EMPIRE OF YESTERDAY. Let’s call it that, shall we?—And the sun never set on the British flag. It had great colonies around the World, & if not colonies, they were still commonwealths like Canada, her young whelps, the lion’s whelps, like America, all still standing strong together. In fact, the Bible even speaks of it in Ezekiel. (Eze.38:13) So Britain & its colonies & ex-colonies & commonwealths, etc., were the mightiest empire on Earth just a few years ago in modern history‚ greater, more powerful than Russia, Russia was nothing then at the turn of the century. Britain at the turn of the century was the greatest empire, World power on Earth. But two wars finished that!
BUT WHAT HAPPENED IN THE TWO WORLD WARS?: BRITAIN WAS SO WEAKENED SHE COULDN’T REALLY HOLD HER COLONIES ANY LONGER ANYHOW, especially not with the opposition of both the U.S.A. & Russia who forced Britain to give up her colonies at the bargaining tables of Yalta & Potsdam. FDR made agreements with Churchill, etc., & finally even reached agreements with Stalin at these conferences in which mostly the U.S.A. & Russia were then left as the two main superpowers of the World after WW2.
POOR BRITAIN WAS SUNK, EXHAUSTED, BANKRUPT, the flower of its mankind absolutely slaughtered in two World Wars & had almost nothing left! If it hadn’t been for the U.S. stepping in & U.S. support— bringing them back to strength, & Germany too—Britain even having helped win the war would not have even survived, & her empire did not survive.—Mostly because Russia & the U.S. agreed that Britain should be more democratic & allow its colonies to be democratic & allow them to rule themselves & become independent.
SO RUSSIA & THE U.S.A. STRIPPED BRITAIN OF ITS EMPIRE! If you want to know who really got licked in World War 2, it was the British Empire! They were the biggest losers of any participant in World War 2, France too. They insisted that France give up all of her colonies. But the French were a little tougher, a little more fighters than the British. The British didn’t have much fight left‚ poor folks, they were about all fought-out, exhausted! And the U.S.A. having rescued them‚ after all‚ along with Russia, what could they say? What could Churchill say at those conferences when the U.S. was self-righteously appealing hypocritically for the forces of democracy, “We saved the World for democracy!”
THE FIRST WORLD WAR WAS THE WAR TO END ALL WARS! YOU CAN SEE HOW IT ENDED ALL WARS, it started more wars than it ended & resulted & ended in the Second World War‚ which was nothing in the World but a continuation of World War 1, because World War 1 settled nothing!—Except it began to weaken Britain & break up the British Empire. Then World War 2 finished off Britain as a World power. Britain is not even a first-rate European power today. If it were not for the U.S.A. backing Britain, it would be the third weakest power in Europe today!
IT’S ALL A WAR OF PROPAGANDA‚ IT’S ALL A WAR OF THE MINDS! It’s really a war of the hearts & a campaign between God & the Devil for the souls of men! Right now it looks to me like the Devil’s winning & the Lord is allowing him to win, until he takes over the whole World & sets up his own kingdom on Earth, the kingdom of Hell on Earth‚ to give man a last dose of what it means to follow the Devil & what is going to happen in a World ruled by Satan. He’s always wanted to rule the World, so God’s going to let him to show man what Satan’s kingdom is like, Hell on Earth!
SO THEY ROBBED BRITAIN, PARTICULARLY AFTER WORLD WAR 2, OF HER WHOLE EMPIRE, & they declared that she must set all of her colonies free. So brrrrrrum, just like a string of dominoes they all left Britain & became so-called free countries, the largest of them being India, of course, & many other colonies, most of which now are in a terrible mess ever since the British left & no longer have power to control them. Most of the colonies that they stripped France of were in Africa‚ as well as Lebanon etc., in the East. Syria also belonged to France‚ Lebanon belonged to France, Palestine belonged to England.
BUT THE AMERICANS, ALONG WITH THE COOPERATION OF THE RUSSIANS, PUT THE PRESSURE ON, the squeeze on all of these former empires, the imperialists. Russia said, “We’re determined to have no more imperialists, no more imperial empires!” Russia, using America’s own propaganda, its own teachings, its own words, said, “All right, now you claim you fought this war to free the World for democracy? Let’s do it! Make Britain give up her empire! Make France give up her empire! Make Portugal give up its empire! Come on, let’s see you make your friends do it! You claim that’s why you’re fighting Hitler, to make Hitler give up his empire, but what about your friends? Make them give up their empires if you want to really enforce this democratic rule all the way!—All over the World!”.
SO WITH PRESSURE FROM RUSSIA, THE U.S.A. WAS FORCED TO YIELD & compel & insist on all of its friends giving up their empires.—Including its enemies. Germany had already done that from World War 1, & Japan after World War 2 was forced to give up a lot of its territory & islands, with Russia taking over a few.
SO THAT WAS THE END OF THE LAST GREAT WORLD EMPIRE BEFORE WHOM? What two great World Empires then took over?—Ha! They made all their friends give up their Empires, but what did they do? The U.S. & Russia are the two greatest Empires of all!—Now greater than the British Empire, who now control & rule & finance & dictate to all of these colonies‚ remnants of their friends’ former empires. They now not only forced them to give up their colonies‚ but they rule the mother countries, except for France.
DAN.11, VERSE 20—”RAISER OF TAXES”
AFTER THE BRITISH EMPIRE FELL‚ WHAT NATION THEN BECAME THE GREATEST NATION ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH? The United States of America became the greatest‚ most powerful nation, the most powerful empire‚ king or kingdom on Earth! Even more than the Russians?—Oh yes! Russia was still trying to really get rebuilt. It had been exhausted by the war & still didn’t have the atom bomb, only the Americans had the atom bombs. Think of it! And with the atom bomb‚ they were the most powerful nation on the face of the Earth! All that to explain this.
IF, AS WE KNOW, THE ANTICHRIST IS GOING TO BE THE NEXT WORLD EMPIRE & THE MOST POWERFUL NATION ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH & he’s going to be the King of the North or of Russia (Eze.38:1-3), if he is next, who has just preceded him? (The U.S.A.) So let’s go back a verse to the 20th Verse, the one which describes some World power in existence just before the Antichrist.
“THEN SHALL STAND UP IN HIS ESTATE A RAISER OF TAXES IN THE GLORY OF THE KINGDOM.” Did you know the United States raises more taxes than any nation on the face of the Earth, & it spends more money, most of it tax money, for munitions, armies, the military, guns, planes, bombs & armaments than any nation on the face of the Earth? And do you know how she can afford to do it? She’s the greatest raiser of taxes in the World!
UNTIL NOW THE AVERAGE AMERICAN IS WORKING HALF OF HIS TIME FOR THE GOVERNMENT IN THE AMOUNT OF TAXES THAT HE HAS TO PAY! In fact, Americans have become absolute tax slaves. They have to pay their taxes for guns & bombs, even for a war they didn’t want & didn’t like, like Vietnam. They still had to pay for it. Because if they didn’t pay for it, the U.S. government agents could come around with guns & tell’m‚ “If you don’t pay, we not only take your house & your car & your furniture & everything you’ve got, we slam you in jail besides!” That’s how they raise their taxes, the greatest raiser of taxes in the World!
THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS FREE INFORMATION! There’s no such thing as any kind of media today that is not controlled by somebody & somebody’s propaganda, & most of it today, nearly all of it—& if it’s not all of it now, it will soon be—[ANTICHRIST] propaganda.—Newspapers controlled by [ANTICHRISTS], TV stations, radio stations, news agencies, all of them run by [ANTICHRISTS]. All the principal news agencies are all controlled by [ANTICHRISTS], so you don’t hear hardly anything, in the entire Western World at least, except propaganda controlled by the [ANTICHRISTS]. You just hear what they want you to know, just what they want you to learn, just what they want you to think, it’s all controlled by them.—As well as‚ of course, the banks & the money & the industries & the movies & now the government & everything!
BUT I’M TELLING YOU SOMETHING ABOUT HISTORY, ANYHOW, THAT’S A LOT CLOSER & MORE EXACT THAN MOST OF WHAT YOU READ IN THE HISTORY BOOKS! You’re hearing the facts‚ what’s really happening underneath. The history books are just the false veneer on the outside to cover up what they’re up to. If you read the real story you’ll know something different!
VERSE 20 CONTINUED – The crash!
SO THE GREAT WORLD POWER WHICH IS TO IMMEDIATELY PRECEDE THE ANTICHRIST IS A GREAT RAISER OF TAXES!
“BUT WITHIN FEW DAYS HE SHALL BE DESTROYED”—THAT IS, IN THE MIND OF GOD FEW DAYS. He calls 2500 years many days, but in few days, that’s just a few years, “He shall be destroyed‚ neither in anger nor in battle.” What’s going to destroy America before it’s actually destroyed by fire & war? What’s going to destroy America first? (The Economic Crash.)
WELL, HOW COULD THE [AC] BANKERS WHO CONTROL EVERYTHING NOW IN AMERICA, who control the banks & the money & the government & the industries & the economy & everything, allow such a thing as a Crash to destroy America? Once again, they staged the whole thing!
FOR ONE THING, EVERY CRASH THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN & READ OF & KNOWN OF IN HISTORY, THE [AC] BANKERS CAME OUT ON TOP IN THE END! It wasn’t they who crashed, it was the little banks & the little fellows & the goys & the gentiles & the Americans, etc., who crashed & lost all the money. The poor people, the middle men, the little fellows, they’re the ones who lost. After the Depression the [ACs] wound up with all the mortgages & all the industries & all the money & just about everything!
LET ME TELL YOU, THE BIG BOYS, THE ONES AT THE TOP WHO HAVE BILLIONS & ARE INTERNATIONAL, MEANING THE [AC] BANKERS & ALL, THEY NEVER LOSE! When things crash & everybody seems to be losing everything, losing on the stock market, losing their bank accounts, losing their businesses, losing their industries, did you ever happen to think about this? They’re losing to whom?
IF YOU LOSE SOMETHING, USUALLY SOMEBODY ELSE FINDS IT! Especially when they deliberately finagle & design it so you will lose it so they can find it! In fact, they know right where it’s at, in their banks! That’s what happened in Miami. They engineered the Crash in Miami & it crashed in ’27, two years before the national Crash in ’29. It had already been taken over by the [ACs], but that sealed its fate. The big [AC] bankers just took the thing over. They collected all the debts, notes‚ IOUs, mortgages, etc.‚ & they then were the masters of Miami from the time of the Miami Crash of ’27 when the boom burst. They took over, because everybody owed them!
THEY ARE MASTERS AT THIS BUSINESS OF LOANING MONEY, loan sharks to loan money to people. Even when they know they’re not going to be able to pay, they often insist on loaning them money, knowing they can’t pay. Why? You had a home, you had a lot that was worth thousands of dollars, but you needed a little cash, you needed a little something to tide you over, you needed a little something to finance it. So they loaned you a few thousand, a fraction of the worth of the property, so that you supposedly can even buy the property or keep the property, probably even knowing what’s going to happen, that things are going to go crash & you’re not going to be able to pay. Then they have literally bought your property for just a few thousand dollars, far below the market price, far below what it’s worth.
BANKS NEVER LOAN YOU THE WHOLE VALUE OF A PIECE OF PROPERTY. When you get a mortgage, you just get one or two or three thousand Dollars on a piece of property that’s maybe worth tens of thousands. But if you don’t pay, they take the whole thing! They don’t just say, “Well, we’ll sell it & just pay off the mortgage,” they get the whole thing‚ they get the whole property! That’s [AC] business, that’s the way the [ACs] have taken over the World!
THEY HAVE BEEN MONEYLENDERS FOR CENTURIES! They have taken over nations, kingdoms & now they’re taking over the World by the same method. Where do you think all this money came from that was loaned to all these Third World countries who now cannot pay? Where does it come from? ([AC] bankers.)
SO WHO PRECEDED THE ANTICHRIST AS THE GREAT SUPER POWER BEFORE HE & HIS POWER, HIS COUNTRY AROSE? (The U.S.A.) I think that’s a pretty apt description right there in that 20th verse, the “raiser of taxes.” I mean, if the U.S.A. is famous for anything, it’s famous for raising taxes! And if there’s anything that’s going to destroy it, that the [ACs] are going to use to destroy it, it’s the Crash! Because when the U.S.A. crashes, what does the Crash mean? (It means the end of the country economically.)
VISION: And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries. (Dan.11:21)
INTERPRETATION: Some think this “vile person” was the Syrian king, Antiochus IV Epiphanes – a historical figure who fit the role of a “vile person” quite well. But he was just a “type” or forerunner of the evil one who is to come, and no doubt he was an intermediate fulfilment of the final Antichrist‚ as others also have been, How do we know this? In the very next verse we are told, “also the prince of the covenant.” Or, to translate it more accurately: “and [he is] also the prince of the covenant.” This statement serves to identify and link the “vile person” to the previous revelation in Daniel 9:27 about the “prince” who confirms the “covenant” in the time of the End.
This same prince then breaks the covenant in the midst of the week bringing on the Great Tribulation, IN MANY PASSAGES IT TELLS US EXACTLY HOW LONG THE TRIBULATION’S GOING TO BE—3-1/2 YEARS! All of these passages all through the Bible teach the same thing, & give the length of the Tribulation in many ways: It will begin in the middle of the 7-year Covenant (Dan.9:27), which leaves 3 1/2 years.—Or a time (one year) & times (two years) & half–a-time (half–a-year) (Dan.7:25 & 12:7)—or 3-1/2 years. Or it says 42 months (Rev.13:5) which is 3–1/2 years. Or it says 1260 days (Rev.12:6), which is 3-1/2 years! All say the same: THE GREAT TRIBULATION‚ OR PERSECUTION OF THE RELIGIONS BY THE ANTICHRIST SHALL LAST 3-1/2 YEARS EXACTLY—the last half of the broken Covenant. God made it so specific & counted it in so many different ways that nobody could possibly misinterpret it or misunderstand.
Seven Year Covenant Daniel. 9:27!
And Jesus himself said “When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)” and “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” This comment by Jesus on the predictions of Daniel in chapter 11 Verse 31 clearly place these events as happening after His time on Earth, and therefore long after Antiochus. (Read Mk.13:14, MT.24:15)
Rise of the Antichrist!
FROM THE 21ST VERSE ON, IT’S TALKING ABOUT THE SAME ANTICHRIST KING ALL THE WAY THROUGH TO THE VERY END, RIGHT CLEAR THROUGH THE TRIBULATION TO THE RESURRECTION-THE KING OF THE NORTH! The whole thing describes him without interruption, constantly talking about him all the way right to the end, so it couldn’t have been any past kings of Greece or Rome blah blah! It’s talking about the King of the North at the Time of the End, who can be no other than the Antichrist!
SO THIS DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE ANTICHRIST BEGINS HERE IN THE 21ST VERSE: “A vile (evil) person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, & obtain the kingdom by flatteries. (powerful persuasion‚ propaganda, like Communism). They take over the hearts & minds of the people‚ & then they don’t have to fire a shot!
THIS ANTICHRIST GOVERNMENT DESCRIBED IN THE BIBLE IS A PICTURE OF RED COMMUNISM IF I EVER SAW ONE! He certainly is using the tactics of Communism.
Antichrist fights a war to get into power!
VISION: And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, (he’s) also the prince of the covenant. (Dan.11:22)
INTERPRETATION: And with the arms of a flood – He first of all sneaks in by flatteries & peaceably, but then, when he’s got the proper opportunity‚ he seizes power by force of arms like a flood! That’s a war! He carries on a war or God knows how many wars or against whom, in order to establish his worldwide power.
HE SNUCK IN AND HE OBTAIN THE KINGDOM BY FLATTERIES THEN HE SEIZED POWER & HE DEFEATED HIS MAJOR ENEMY, & it is only natural & it is history that at the end of a war they usually make a treaty. In fact, the treaty is usually imposed on the loser by the winner, & the Antichrist obviously wins this war in the 22nd verse. So then it calls him the prince of the Covenant, which seems to imply that the Covenant is made at this time at the end of that war. He has licked his main enemy & he more or less forces the Covenant on them, which is probably why he has so many rebellions afterwards. It wasn’t necessarily something they wanted to agree to, but they had to, they were forced to.
Antichrist the prince of the covenant!
“YEA, (HE’S) ALSO THE PRINCE OF THE COVENANT!” This is literally what this passage means. It does not mean, “Yea, also the Prince of the Covenant” is broken. Hebrew is a very funny language‚ & there is a lot of difficulty in translation & no punctuation. In the original not even the words are divided, much less Chapters & Verses! So the writer just stops & says, “Yea, also the Prince of the Covenant.” So to you & me in the English, it looks & sounds like it means that the Prince of the Covenant was overthrown too! Ahhhh! He too was broken! But this is impossible! If you make that interpretation of this passage‚ then you belie all the other passages & their interpretation regarding the Prince of the Covenant.
NOW, WHAT THE WRITER HERE IS TRYING TO BRING OUT IS THAT HE IS NOT ONLY DOING ALL THESE THINGS, but this is also the guy we have been talking about in all these other Scriptures!: This is the guy who is also the Prince of the Covenant! He is the one that’s going to make & break the Covenant.
THIS IS THE SAME AS THE PRINCE THAT SHALL COME OF (DANIEL 9:26-27) THE ANTICHRIST.) “And he shall confirm the Covenant with many for one week,” meaning seven years. Then we’re finding out that in the 22nd verse of Daniel 11 it’s talking about this prince of the Covenant, very clear.
VISION: And after the league (COVENANT) made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people. (Dan.11:23)
INTERPRETATION: OK, THERE IT IS: THE LEAGUE MADE WITH THE PRINCE OF THE COVENANT! How therefore can he be overthrown?—This shows you clearly as anything that the Prince of the Covenant can’t be the one who is overthrown! It says, “Yea‚ also the Prince of the Covenant”. What it really means here is: “Yea, (he’s) also the Prince of the Covenant!”
“AND AFTER THE LEAGUE (COVENANT) MADE WITH HIM HE SHALL WORK DECEITFULLY.” He can’t be broken here, he can’t be killed here, he can’t be the one that is overthrown here (as he is in the End, Dan.8:25 & 11:45), because a league is made with him here, & he continues to work deceitfully to take over the whole world! Now this shows you how easily you can be led astray by misunderstanding one little line in the Bible, not even a chapter nor a verse nor even a clause nor a sentence‚ just one phrase! In fact, it’s hardly even a phrase, it’s just a declaration of him as being the Prince of the Covenant!
DANIEL’S BEEN DESCRIBING THE ANTICHRIST & HIS WORK & what he’s going to do, & so he identifies him, boom‚ right flat off, & says‚ “Yes, this is the guy we’ve been talking about. Here he is, the Prince of the Covenant I told you about in Dan.9:27!”—And now you’ve got to go right on with the next passage‚ or you’re going to be thrown completely.
“AND AFTER THE LEAGUE MADE WITH HIM, he shall work deceitfully‚ for he shall come up & shall become strong with a small people. He shall enter peaceably upon the fattest places of the province; & he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers: He shall scatter (share, communism) among them (the poor) the prey & spoil & riches (of the rich!).” After the league made with whom?—The one they just said!: The Prince of the Covenant! So how the hell is he going to be broken or overthrown so soon even before the league? All the way through the rest of the Chapter it’s talking about the Prince of the Covenant!
It’s after the Antichrist makes THE Covenant that he becomes powerful & rules the World. So I’m inclined to believe that this league also means the Covenant, it’s the same idea. A league means partnership or a deal or a union, something that’s agreed upon together. He made a league with him some kind of binding agreement. Well, that’s a covenant‚ isn’t it? OK.
He works deceitfully, he becomes strong with a small people & he grabs things like nobody has ever done before, even peaceably. Many countries fall prey peaceably, although not all.
THIS GUY, he’s very clever, he deceives the people, he even lies to them, promises them things. And this one big promise he made was called the Covenant, & it speaks of it again & again here in the Bible about this Covenant that he makes.
THAT’S THE BIGGEST LIE HE EVER TOLD IN WHICH HE PROMISES THE WORLD PEACE, religious freedom & Jerusalem internationalised & no more war between the Jews & the Arabs & the Christians & all this‚ & he promises’m everything. But right in the middle of the seven years‚ the biggest promise he made, this seven-years Covenant, he breaks it right in the middle.
In this chapter the AC is CALLED THE “KING OF THE NORTH” (Dan.11:40), and generally this man is spoken of throughout Bible prophecy as being from the North. In Ezekiel he is spoken of and called Gog, the chief prince of Magog (Russia), Meshech (Moscow) and Tubal (Tobolsk). It says “in the latter years” he shall gather a great army and shall “come from thy place out of the north parts,” “against the mountains of Israel.” (Ezk.38:2,8,15)
THE RUSSIANS ONCE WERE A VERY SMALL PEOPLE compared to the mighty powers of the British Empire‚ Roman Empire‚ Greek Empire, American Empire, all these great countries even in this modern day, the Russians were a very small people. But they have gained a lot of territory since then, right? Become strong with a small people.
VISION: He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time. (Dan.11:24)
INTERPRETATION: How does communism usually take over countries? By invading them with a big army and air force and conquering them by force of arms? No, they do it by propaganda! THEY FIRST CAPTURE THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE WITH THEIR DOCTRINE and then let the people themselves turn to communism and take over their own government by force of arms.
ENTER PEACEABLY UPON THE FATTEST PLACES OF THE PROVINCE. Well, I’d say‚ that’s a better way to enter than to come in shooting like the Americans do! Better to persuade them to surrender, better to persuade them to keep the peace.
“HERE I AM, I’M NOT YOUR ENEMY, I’M YOUR FRIEND! I’m here to liberate you & share the wealth and divvy up the land & throw out your rich tyrannical oppressive colonial rulers & I’m going to save you!”
BUT ANYHOW, “THEY ENTER PEACEABLY UPON THE FATTEST PLACES OF THE PROVINCE & DO THAT WHICH HIS FATHERS HAVE NOT DONE.” Now this is speaking, of course, of the Antichrist himself, “Nor his fathers’ fathers,” what? “Shall scatter among them the prey, & the spoil, & riches.”
VERY FEW WORLD CONQUERORS, KINGS, TYRANTS & INVADERS HAVE COME INTO A COUNTRY & THEN DIVIDED THE LAND & divided the riches amongst the people of the country, taken it away from the rich & given it to the poor. Very few have ever done that‚ it’s been a rare rare thing. But that’s what the Communists do, at least that’s what they say they do & a lot of times they do. They come in & take it away from the rich & they give it to the poor, literally they do it.
NOT MANY OF THEIR FATHERS OR THEIR FATHERS’ FATHERS EVER DID IT. What most conquerors did, they came in & slaughtered both rich & poor & took all the wealth & the riches for themselves & took it home with them. But this kind of conqueror is going to scatter the prey‚ divide the spoil & the riches, something very unusual that has not usually been done before. They’re going to divide it up, take away from the rich & give to the poor. Well, that sounds like a pretty good idea, not too bad. But they do it without God That’s the trouble.
SEE, IT’S THE DEVIL’S OWN SYSTEM, THE DEVIL’S OWN TRYING TO BE LIKE GOD. He’s going to be fair‚ he’s going to be righteous, he’s going to take it away from these oppressive rich & give it to the poor‚ & he’s going to be more fair than God!—Or pretend to be!
HE’S GOING TO BE BETTER TO THE POOR THAN GOD‚ he’s going to be better & more fair & more peaceable than God & God’s people who have largely oppressed the poor & tyrannised the World. It wasn’t the Communists who dropped the first atom bombs‚ it was the U.S.A. And they weren’t satisfied with dropping one, wiping out one whole city full of babies & women & children & old men, but also another city.
“YEA, HE SHALL FORECAST HIS DEVICES AGAINST THE STRONGHOLDS, EVEN FOR A TIME.” He’s going to prophesy what he’s going to do, He’ll forecast, he will predict, that means to say ahead of time what he’s going to do. He’s going to say we’re going to conquer the whole World! Stalin says, “You can’t have Communism & Capitalism both in the same World, either one is eventually going to conquer, & we the Communists are going to conquer the World! We’re going to take it over away from those rich stinkin’ Capitalists who have nearly wrecked the World!”.
SO, HE’S GOING TO FORECAST HIS DEVICES AGAINST THE STRONGHOLDS, & what’s one of the strongest holds today? It’s a hole, alright, it’s the pit!—The U.S.A., America! It says hold, h-o-l-d, but we could pronounce it strong hole. It’s a real hole‚ a pit of the Devil & all his devices. A strong hole, very strong, but not strong enough for the Antichrist.
The Antichrist war with the King of the south!
VISION: And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they shall forecast devices against him. (Dan.11:25)
INTERPRETATION: RUSSIA (MAGOG) IS GOING TO COME DOWN FROM THE NORTH & ATTACK THE KING OF THE SOUTH, & who is the king of the South right now, or they think they’re the king of the South? They think they’re the biggest & the most powerful & the smartest & the richest & that they’re going to run the whole Mideast because they’ve got the U.S. behind them Israel, In fact‚ there are going to be quite a few kings of the South down there fighting together with Israel & even some of the kings of the West are going to fight together with Israel.
“HE SHALL STIR UP HIS POWER & HIS COURAGE AGAINST THE KINGS OF THE SOUTH WITH A GREAT ARMY; & the king of the South shall be stirred up to battle with a very great & mighty army; but he shall not stand.” Even though he’s got a very great army he’s going to go boom. Because the U.S.A. & the West are helping the Kings of the South in this big battle against the Kings of the North & East & they’re going to fall down flat.
“FOR THEY SHALL FORECAST DEVICES AGAINST HIM.” They’re going to be able to prophesy against the king of the South & forecast what they’re going to do. They’re going to forecast, foretell, tell ahead of time, tell before. Foretell is to tell before what they’re going to do.
VISION: Yea, they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall down slain. (Dan.11:26)
INTERPRETATION: Traitors‚ in other words, spies he apparently had that helped him forecast their devices. The very ones who were fighting with the Israelis are going to turn traitor on them & destroy them! “And his army shall overflow & many shall fall down slain.”
VISION: And both these kings’ hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed. (Dan.11:27)
INTERPRETATION: THESE WORLD LEADERS ARE GOING TO MEET THERE AT ONE TABLE The Antichrist comes down & defeats him & tries to re– establish the Covenant, “the league made with him,” etc. by sitting at one table, but it just doesn’t seem to work, so his heart is now beginning to turn against the Covenant completely.
They’re going to lie to people & make promises they’re not going to fulfil. They’re going to promise to keep Jerusalem as the eternal capital of the World & everybody free & all religions acknowledge their freedom, etc., but they’re not going to do it “for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.” They think they’re going to have it forever,
“BUT IT SHALL NOT PROSPER”, even as the Apostle predicted: “When they shall say, Peace and safety, then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” (I Thes. 5:3) All this talking of peace is the immediate prelude to the most horrible war and destruction that the world will ever know. “For yet the end shall be at the time appointed.” It’s not going to prosper for either superpower, because God is going to bring it all to an end.
VISION: Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land. (Dan.11:28)
INTERPRETATION: He has beaten the King of the South & he has taken away a lot of his riches, his lands, etc. “And his heart shall be against the Holy Covenant,” which it sounds to me like they had made clear back in the 22nd verse! (the League.) And because the fellow rebelled against him, rebelled against the agreement they had made, the Covenant, now the Antichrist’s heart is turning against the Covenant.
UNDER THE COVENANT THE ANTICHRIST PROMISED TO DO THIS & DO THAT & AGREED TO PEACE ON CERTAIN CONDITIONS, such as the internationalisation of Jerusalem, my guess, & is going to allow them to rebuild their Temple, which is also my guess, as a part of the Covenant. But I think it is pretty obvious, considering what happened afterwards, that it must have been part of the Covenant to rebuild Jerusalem, the Temple, etc. Right? Because it all has to do with that when it comes down to the end of things (2 Thessalonians:3-4).
The Antichrist second war with the king of the south!
VISION: At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter. (Dan.11:29)
INTERPRETATION: All right! He goes back home with all his riches & wealth & conquests & he’s conquered the whole Mideast & the oil & he’s got it all. That’s the richest thing you can get down there in the Mideast is the oil. He conquers all those oil countries along with Israel, & Israel can’t cause any more trouble.
EVERYBODY’S ARGUING OVER WHO’S GOING TO GET JERUSALEM & WHO’S GOING TO HAVE JERUSALEM, well‚ I can tell you right straight out of the Bible who’s going to have Jerusalem, none of them!—The Antichrist is going to have Jerusalem for awhile, of course‚ but we’re going to have it in the End!
“BUT IT SHALL NOT BE AS THE FORMER, OR AS THE LATTER” But it’s going to be different this time, not like it was in the former (verse 25) or the latter (verse 40), it’s gonna be different the way he comes back. Why is it going to be different? 30th verse,
VISION: For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant. (Dan.11:30)
INTERPRETATION: SO WHO COMES UP AGAINST HIM WHILE HE’S GONE & REBELS AGAINST HIS WORLD GOVERNMENT & tries to take it back?—Ships of Chittim. Do you know what those are? Well, some of your Bible dictionaries will tell you Cyprus, but you know Cyprus hasn’t got enough ships to take over in a case like this. It has a much more far-reaching meaning than that.
IT WAS AT ONE TIME THAT THE SHIPS OF CHITTIM WENT CLEAR TO THE BRITISH ISLES. And what country has ships & has sailed ships all over the World? (Britain.) So here the significance of this particular name is Britain (Tarshish)“& all the young lions thereof” as we’ll find out over in Ezekiel 38 & 39 shall cry out against him:
“WHAT ARE YOU DOING DOWN HERE, RUSSIA? What are you doing down here in the Middle East taking over Israel & Jerusalem & everything! We protest!” And they try to come up & start a war against them to take it back. And what does he do? He comes down, he returns, he has intelligence with them that forsake the holy Covenant.
HE HAD MADE A PROMISE, HE HAD MADE A COVENANT WITH THE WORLD that it would be an international city, they could have their places of worship & they could have their temple & they could have their great mosques & they could have their churches & the Christians & the Muslims & the Jews & everybody could worship there in freedom. He would make it a free international city. But did they keep their word? No!
THEY STARTED FIGHTING AGAINST HIM, SO HE CAME DOWN & BROKE THE COVENANT he had made with the whole rest of the religions & he has intelligence, that means he has some spies! He’s spying on these religionists so he can overthrow the Covenant. And he comes back & he sides with the people that are against the Covenant.
“THEREFORE HE SHALL BE GRIEVED & RETURN & HAVE INDIGNATION AGAINST THE HOLY COVENANT, SO SHALL HE DO.” In other words‚ “They don’t want to keep it? All right. They agreed to it, they want to fight‚ I’ll give’m a fight! If they want a war, I’ll give’m a war!”
The Antichrist Breaks the covenant and places the abomination of desolation!
VISION: And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate. (Dan.11:31)
INTERPRETATION: THE ANTICHRIST’S 7-YEAR COVENANT!
“AND HE SHALL CONFIRM THE COVENANT WITH MANY FOR ONE WEEK” (Dan.9:27), meaning seven years. The Antichrist comes on the scene with a 7–Year Pact to reign seven years. It’ll be the smartest piece of politicking & diplomacy ever engineered!
ANYBODY WHO COULD SOLVE THE SEEMINGLY UNSOLVABLE PROBLEM OF ISRAEL & TO WHOM IT BELONGS & WHO SHOULD BE THERE & WHO SHOULDN’T—outside of the Lord—it would certainly take Satanic wisdom & genius to do it! And apparently, according to God’s Word, the Lord is going to allow Satan to give the Antichrist the wisdom to do so, & the whole World will wonder after him! (Rev.13:3)
“HE SHALL COME IN PEACEABLY‚ & OBTAIN THE KINGDOM BY FLATTERIES. He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; & he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, & spoil, & riches: yea, & he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.” (Dan.11:21,24)
HE WORKS DECEITFULLY, In which he promises the World peace, religious freedom, Jerusalem internationalised & no more war between the Jews & the Arabs & the Christians & all this, & he promises’m everything. But right in the middle of the seven years he breaks it!
“BY PEACE SHALL HE DESTROY MANY!” (Dan.8:25) When the Antichrist takes over the World & establishes his Worldwide kingdom, his Worldwide anti-God government, his Worldwide Antichrist World government, he says, “Peace & safety! Everything’s going to be peaceful & safe now.—No more wars, everything’s going to be secure, prosperity on Earth, everybody’s going to have plenty & my kingdom’s going to be a kingdom of Heaven on Earth, peace & safety!”
BUT “WHEN THEY SHALL SAY, PEACE & SAFETY; THEN SUDDEN DESTRUCTION cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; & they shall not escape!” (1Th.5:3) He makes the Covenant as a World Peace Treaty & everything is going fine, he’s going to make everybody happy & have World peace until he’s finally got everything firmly in his grip. “After the League (Covenant) made with him, he shall work deceitfully & he shall come up & shall become strong with a small people.” (Dan.11:23)
“AND IN THE MIDST OF THE WEEK (7-YEAR COVENANT PERIOD), HE SHALL CAUSE THE (RELIGIOUS) SACRIFICE & THE OBLATION TO CEASE, & for the overspreading of Abomination he shall make it desolate!” (Dan.9:27) At the end of 3-1/2 years he breaks the Covenant, invades Israel, & takes over the land that’s redeemed & brought back, rebuilt, towns without walls. (Ez.38), makes Jerusalem his capital, places the Abomination of Desolation in the Holy Place, proclaims himself God, & attempts to enforce Worldwide worship of himself & his Image—a time of “Great Tribulation”!
“HE HATH PUT FORTH HIS HANDS AGAINST SUCH AS BE AT PEACE WITH HIM: HE HATH BROKEN HIS COVENANT. The words of his mouth were smoother than butter (‘Peace, Peace’), but war was in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords. The highways lie waste, the wayfaring man ceaseth: he hath broken the Covenant, he hath despised the cities, he regardeth no man. The Earth mourneth & languisheth: Lebanon is ashamed & hewn down: Sharon is like a wilderness; & Bashan & Carmel shake off their fruits.” (Ps.55:20,21; Is.33:8‚9)
At that time MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL STANDS UP IN THE SPIRIT WORLD TO FIGHT SATAN‚ who is then “cast out into the Earth … having great wrath … and he persecuted the woman (the Church)… for a time and times and half a time”—or 3 1/2 years, the time of the Great Tribulation (Rev.12:7-14). This may be when the Antichrist becomes totally possessed by Satan, literally becoming the Devil in the flesh.
HERE YOU HAVE THIS WAR BETWEEN THE ANTICHRIST & U.S forces, obviously in this case in Israel, a Mideast War if nothing else, which seems to be the most likely. The Mideast is in a mess right now, it’s had constant war for years. Hardly ever has war ceased there.
SO OBVIOUSLY HIS FIRST DRIVE IN THIS WAR AGAINST THE U.S. & THE JEWS & THEIR FRIENDS & THE WEST IS TOWARD ISRAEL, which was the internationalised capital of the World’s religions & was supposed to be a symbol of peace, Jerusalem. Jeru-shalom literally means “the city of peace.” What a travesty! It’s had almost nothing but war throughout its whole history.—A very warlike people, always stubborn, always rising up in revolt against their conquerors, etc.
HE MAKES A COVENANT WITH THE WORLD they can have Jerusalem, international city, freedom of worship, but what happens? The West starts causing trouble again. Ships of Chittim come up against him.
THEY SAY, “WE DON’T LIKE IT! WE DON’T LIKE YOU HAVING JERUSALEM! We want it back & we want to run it!” That’s what they’re doing right now through Israel. The United States is running Israel & Israel is running Jerusalem, & so the U.S. figures they dominate Jerusalem & they should have it back. But he gets very angry & he comes back against them.
HE’S PROMISED THEM THIS SEVEN-YEAR COVENANT OF FREEDOM of peace & religious worship, etc.‚ & really, they break it because they rise up against him. So he comes down in a storm with armies again & he comes against them & he stops all this sacrifice & worship that they’ve been starting all over again. The Jews have rebuilt the Temple & they’ve started sacrificial worship again, & he stops the whole thing.
HE STOPS NOT ONLY THE WORSHIP OF THE JEWS, but he stops the worship of the Muslims & the Christians! But he’s especially angry at the [Israelis] because they’re the ones that are always causing the most trouble, the most rebellious, the most cantankerous, the most stubborn, the most disobedient and the most stiffnecked. They’re the troublemakers & the leaders of all the trouble.
THEY LEAD IN THIS TROUBLE, SO WHAT DOES HE DO TO PUNISH THEM? He gets so angry with them. It doesn’t say he goes over to the Catholic Church & sticks this Abomination of Desolation in front of the Catholic Church‚ does it? It doesn’t say he sticks it in the Mosque of Omar of the Muslims, does it? But he takes it to where the Temple of Jerusalem has been rebuilt & the Jews have started sacrificing again, their old Jewish worship again, & he pollutes the sanctuary!
THESE ANTI-CHRIST, ANTI-GOD FORCES, ANTI–RELIGIOUS FORCES COME IN & TAKE IT OVER, & he takes away the daily sacrifice, he stops the Jewish worship! He attacks the Jews most of all because they’re the troublemakers & the leaders of the trouble, & he stops their worship & he takes away the daily sacrifice & he places the abomination that maketh desolate, & what is that?
JESUS SAYS YOU’LL SEE IT STAND IN THE HOLY PLACE IN MATTHEW 24:15, & in Revelation it says he’s going to make an image that can speak & command people to be killed. An image standing in the holy place, an idol‚ which is an abomination to the Jews‚ an abomination to the Muslims & an abomination to the Christians! He’s going to have this big computer-controlled idol that’s going to be able to talk, a great big giant robot!
“WHEN YE THEREFORE SHALL SEE THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet‚ stand in the holy place, whoso readeth, let him understand.”)
ISN’T THAT WHAT DANIEL WAS JUST TALKING ABOUT? Isn’t that what Daniel called it? “The abomination which maketh desolate”?—Revelation 13 says the Image is going to stand there, he’s going to erect an image right there in the holy place! When you see it stand there in the holy place, “whoso readeth let him understand.”
In the ways of the world, might is right‚ and WAR IS THE ULTIMATE OF ALL MAN’S ENDEAVORS; man at his best is man at his worst, which is WAR. THIS GUY IS THE TOP WARMONGER! And everybody worships him for it.
In Revelation 13th Chapter it describes this same event in more detail “THERE WAS GIVEN HIM (ANTICHRIST) A MOUTH SPEAKING GREAT THINGS AND BLASPHEMIES.” (Rev.13:5a) This description of the ANTICHRIST’S big mouth was also used by Daniel in his various descriptions of the Antichrist. (Dan.7:8,11,20,25; 11:36)
“AND POWER WAS GIVEN UNTO HIM TO CONTINUE FORTY AND TWO MONTHS.” (Rev.13:5) Daniel said for “a time and times and the dividing of time.” (Dan.7:25) The Lord couldn’t be any more specific about the length and duration of the Tribulation period. And the main reason is so that we will know it’s only going to last so long and then it will be over.
Jesus said, speaking of the Tribulation, “Except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but FOR THE ELECTS’ SAKE (OR THE SAINTS)‚ WHOM HE HATH CHOSEN, HE HATH SHORTENED THE DAYS.” (Mk.13:20)—3-1/2 Years and no longer!
“And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God. … And it was given him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them.” (Rev.13:6,7) My God! There are so many of these scriptures that sound just like Daniel’s prophecies about this same period. (See Dan.11:33-39 7:21; 8:24; 12:7.) WHY WOULD GOD DEVOTE ALMOST TWO ENTIRE BOOKS, PLUS MULTITUDES OF OTHER PROPHECIES THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, JUST TO THESE FEW YEARS OF THE ENDTIME? Do you think He doesn’t want us to be deceived along with the rest of the world? Do you think He wants us to be prepared?
“AND POWER WAS GIVEN HIM OVER ALL KINDREDS (RACES), AND TONGUES (LANGUAGES)‚ AND NATIONS. AND ALL THAT DWELL UPON THE EARTH SHALL WORSHIP HIM‚ whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” (Rev.13:7‚8) Do you “dwell upon the earth” or is your “conversation (life) in Heaven“? (Ph.3:20) Are you written in the Lamb’s Book of Life? Are you one of the saved whose names are written in Heaven? (LK.10:20) It’s either Jesus or the Devil—take your choice—’cause that’s what it’s gonna come to. “If any man have an ear, let him hear.” (Rev.13:9)
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb‚ and he spake as a dragon.” (Rev.13:11) In Revelation Chapter 19 verse 20, THIS SECOND BEAST IS CALLED THE “FALSE PROPHET.” JUST AS JESUS HAD JOHN THE BAPTIST, SO THE ANTICHRIST WILL HAVE HIS FORERUNNER to “prepare the way of the Devil.”
“AND HE (THE FALSE PROPHET) CAUSETH THE EARTH AND THEM WHICH DWELL THEREIN TO WORSHIP THE FIRST BEAST (ANTICHRIST), And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from Heaven on earth in the sight of men.” And by these miracles which will be done in the name of “Science,” he “deceiveth them that dwell on the earth … saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast.” (Rev.13:12-14)
“AND HE HAD POWER TO GIVE LIFE UNTO THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” (Rev.13:15)
THIS IMAGE OR IDOL OF THE BEAST WAS CALLED BY DANIEL THE “ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION‚” which would be set up in the temple, exactly what were reading here!
It also says that THE FALSE PROPHET “CAUSETH ALL, BOTH SMALL AND GREAT, RICH AND POOR, FREE AND BOND TO RECEIVE A MARK IN THEIR RIGHT HAND, OR IN THEIR FOREHEADS” (Rev.13:6)
“And that NO MAN WILL BE ABLE TO BUY OR SELL, SAVE HE THAT HAD THE MARK, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Rev.13:17) The time will come when money will no longer be used as a medium of exchange. Instead, THE MONEY MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE WILL BE REPLACED WITH A REMARKABLE CREDIT SYSTEM in which every person in the world who belongs to the system will have a credit number, this mark of the beast, without which he can neither buy nor sell.
Therefore, “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the NUMBER OF THE BEAST: for it is the number of a man; and his number IS SIX HUNDRED THREESCORE AND SIX”
Credit card numbers, bank card numbers‚ these identification card numbers, these Social Security card numbers, all of these things, what are they?—The numbers of what? (A man.)—The number of a person, a man! “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the Beast: For it is the number of a man; & his number is Six hundred three score & six.” The preachers always told us before that what that meant was the Antichrist’s number. Well, it is his number, but now we begin to understand how men can be numbered. It is the number of a man. It is the number of the Antichrist that he puts on each man.
AND WHAT IS THIS MARK? HE TELLS YOU IT IS THE MARK OR THE NAME OF THE BEAST OR THE NUMBER OF HIS NAME. Those may be three different things or they may be one & the same thing. Even if it’s a number‚ it’s still the Mark of the Beast. And even if it’s related to his name, it’s his brand, the same as his name‚ & it shows you’re one of his if you take it. So it’s all three even if it’s only a number—the Mark, the name of the Beast, & the number of his name. So the Mark, even if it’s a number, is still the name of the Beast, it’s branding you with his name by the fact that you’ve even got the number.
ALL RIGHT BACK TO DANIEL, Verse 31 here you have him stopping the Jewish worship, setting up his Abomination of Desolation, the idol. And at that time we know he declares himself to be God and forbids all other worship and THE FALSE PROPHET “CAUSETH ALL, BOTH SMALL AND GREAT, RICH AND POOR, FREE AND BOND TO RECEIVE A MARK IN THEIR RIGHT HAND, OR IN THEIR FOREHEADS” the Mark of the Beast.
HE STIPS THE WHOLE WORKS! “No more Covenant, no more agreement, no more religious freedom! I’m going to settle this whole thing & going to make the whole World one religion & I’ll be its god, (2.Thes 2:4) & not only that‚ I’m going to make the whole World my kingdom! Period!” Well, you can imagine what effect that has on the U.S.!
VISION: And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. (Dan.11:32)
INTERPRETATION: He’s going to win a lot of friends & there are going to be a lot of people who agree with him. “These religions that cause trouble all through history for thousands of years, these Jews are always troublemakers, leading the pack, let’s get rid of them!” So he’s going to stir up the wicked & the Godless & the atheists & the evolutionists to fight all the religions‚ “such as do wickedly.”
HE’LL CORRUPT THEM WITH FLATTERIES. He’ll flatter them & say, “Well, I believed in evolution all the time. I knew there was no God all the time‚ I was just trying to let these religions try to make peace, but you can’t get these religionists to ever make peace, they’re always fighting & always warrin’, so I just flattered them but I’m gonna flatter you now.” But, what? What’s the next part of the verse?
“THE PEOPLE THAT DO KNOW THEIR GOD SHALL BE STRONG, & DO EXPLOITS!”) The people who really know Jesus & really know the Lord are going to be strong!—In spite of the Antichrist, the Image of the Beast, standing there, a great computerised idol, statue of the Antichrist.
VISION: And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days. (Dan.11:33)
INTERPRETATION: Wait a minute, they that understand what? (The Bible.) & what’s going on! There are going to be lots of people then, who wouldn’t read the Bible, who wouldn’t study Bible Prophecy‚ who wouldn’t pay any attention to what we said, all of a sudden they’re going to be very much interested!
THEY’RE GOING TO WANT TO KNOW, “HEY, WHAT’S GOING ON? WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT? You kept telling us what was going to happen & now it’s really happened just like you said! So now tell us the rest, what’s going to happen next? What should we do now? What should we do now?” And we’re going to instruct many. We’re going to publish the Glad Tidings‚ the Good News, the Gospel of Salvation to many during that time!
PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BE READY FOR IT THEN! They’re going to want it then, they’re going to want the Truth then, they’re going to want the Gospel then. They’re going to really want the Bible then.
They shall fall by the sword & by flame & captivity & spoil many days.”) He’s going to really persecute the Christians, He’s going to try to wipe us all out because we’re telling the truth‚ we’re exposing him. We’re telling who he really is. He pretends to be the Messiah, he pretends to be the Saviour of the World, but we’re telling the World he is the Antichrist, he’s the Devil in the flesh, the Devil in person! He is the Devil!
WE ARE GOING TO GO THROUGH THIS GREAT TRIBULATION AND COME FORTH AS GOLD tried in the furnace of affliction and persecution. That’s why God is going to let it happen to us: “to try us and purge us and make us white.” Until when? “The time of the end!” “For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on Him‚ but also to suffer for His sake.” (Phil.1:29)
VISION: Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. (Dan.11:34)
INTERPRETATION: When some are going to fall, we’re going to be helped with a little help. Maybe not an awful lot of help, but at least a little help. And when you get a little help from Jesus‚ let me tell you, that’s all the help you need! “Just a little talk with Jesus makes it right, all right!”
“BUT MANY SHALL CLEAVE TO THEM WITH FLATTERIES.” MANY SO-CALLED CHRISTIANS TODAY ARE ALREADY DOING WICKEDLY AGAINST THE TRUE COVENANT OF GOD‚ which is obedience and faith‚ and they have already been corrupted by the flatteries or lying promises of the devil. When the devil in the flesh takes over, these will be nothing but mere puppets and stooges for the Antichrist government.
VISION: And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed. (Dan.11:35)
INTERPRETATION: Until the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.”) Even some of the teachers & leaders & those of understanding, Christians all around the World who love Jesus & are teaching the Bible & preaching the Gospel at that time, even some of them are going to be slain & killed & persecuted & fall down dead, in the flesh. Get it? There’s the persecution‚ there are the terrors of the Tribulation.
TO TRY THEM, TO TEST THEIR FAITH & SEE IF THEY’RE WILLING TO DIE FOR JESUS! See if they’re willing to witness in spite of the Antichrist & his kingdom & all the rest. And to purge them.
VISION: And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done. (Dan.11:36)
INTERPRETATION: Who’s the God of gods?—Our God! But the Antichrist is magnifying himself now as god. Here you come to the middle of his reign, 3–1/2 years‚ & he’s set up the Abomination of Desolation, abolished all religion except his, etc. Now we have the whole works‚ the Tribulation is in full swing.
THE COMMUNIST DICTATORS HAVE COME THE CLOSEST TO FULFILLING THIS COMPLETE OVERTHROW OF ALL RELIGION that the world has ever known. All other past kings, dictators‚ and world rulers have always had some religion or semblance of religion, pretending to worship the gods of their fathers; even the Roman Caesars did this.
COMMUNISM IS NOT JUST A GOVERNMENT; IT IS ALSO A RELIGION‚ a worship of the material and of man and of the government. Communism is a very puritanical, extremely self-righteous and narrow-minded doctrine. It’s a religion of self-righteousness. The cardinal principle of communism is that man is his own God—SELF-WORSHIP.
Their idea is: “We are going to have as much brotherly love, as much self-sacrificial spirit, as much sharing as you could possibly have—but without God.” In other words, “We are going to be God.” THIS IS THE ULTIMATE IN BLASPHEMY, OR SPEAKING AGAINST GOD! This is the very same thing Satan said to himself: “I will be like the most High.” (Is.14:14)
“AND SHALL PROSPER UNTIL THE INDIGNATION BE ACCOMPLISHED.” Do you know what that word “indignation” means? ( Wrath!) “Until the Wrath of God be accomplished.” How long is the Antichrist going to last?—Just till Jesus comes?—No! “Until the Wrath of God shall be accomplished.” What does that mean, accomplished?—Finished! Ended! And it ends with the Battle of Armageddon.
“FOR THAT THAT IS DETERMINED SHALL BE DONE!” What God’s going to do, He’s going to do it! Whatever God has said He’s going to do, Not one shall lack her mate (Is.34:16), not one prophecy shall be without fulfilment, every single one will be fulfilled, & everything God has ever said‚ He’s going to do. He’s going to do it & it will happen!
THE DEVIL & THE ANTICHRIST’S FORCES ARE NOT DEFEATED UNTIL THE END OF THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON! They are not defeated by the coming of Jesus Christ & His rescue of His people. That’s a partial defeat‚ but it’s only like he’s lost a battle, but he keeps right on fighting right to the bitter end!—Against the religions, against anyone that opposes him‚ & finally against the very forces of God from Heaven in the Battle of Armageddon! That’s when he’s going to end. “He shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished,” until the Wrath of God is over. “For that which is determined shall be done!”
VISION: Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. (Dan.11:37)
INTERPRETATION: Did his fathers have a God? Ah-ha! So he must have come from some kind of a family that used to worship God. Well, here’s another indication he might be Jewish. “Neither shall he regard the desire of women.” I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s a homo!
THAT’S THE WORST KIND OF AN ABOMINATION TO GOD, HOMOSEXUALITY‚ SODOMY, for which He wiped out not only cities, but whole nations, & even cast out Israel from their land because He hated that sin so much & He knew that they would be the greatest practisers of it in the whole World! “Men with men working that which is unseemly.” (Rom.1:27) Sodomy, homosexuality. It says the Antichrist is not going to regard the desire of women so I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s a homo! Or HE IS SO SOLD OUT TO HIS CAUSE THAT HE DOESN’T NEED WOMEN —married to his work, as they say. Or he doesn’t regard the desire of women according to Gen.3:16, “Unto the woman He (God) said… thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”
THIS LATTER DISREGARD WOULD RESULT IN THE SO-CALLED EQUALITY OF THE SEXES, something that has never happened in all world history until this generation. In fact‚ this whole idea is nothing new and was stolen right out of the Bible, God’s plan of true communism, where in Christ Jesus “there is neither male nor female.” (Gal.3:28)
“NOR REGARD ANY GOD.” Sounds like he’s saying the women are gods. Well, the way some people worship women‚ women are some men’s gods! “For he shall magnify himself above all.” He is going to magnify himself above the God of gods, women, everything.
VISION: But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. (Dan.11:38)
INTERPRETATION: Now right there that word “god” should not have been capitalised. It shows you that the King James translators did make a few mistakes, “The god of forces.” It just got through saying he blasphemes against the God of gods & the God, which is the only one we capitalise. You don’t capitalise when the word god is used for other gods, that’s a Christian tradition‚ virtually a Christian literature rule, that you only capitalise the names of our God.
“HE SHALL HONOUR THE GOD OF FORCES, & A GOD WHOM HIS FATHERS KNEW NOT SHALL HE HONOUR with gold & silver & with precious stones & pleasant things.” Now what god do you think that’ll be? I thought he already proclaimed himself to be god, but he honours a god. He honours a god, a god of forces, & gives that god gold, silver, precious stones & pleasant things! What god is that? (Computers) DID YOU KNOW THAT COMPUTERS & NEARLY ALL SUPER ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT TODAY REQUIRE THESE PRECIOUS METALS? Gold is used in their circuits & electronics.—Gold, silver & precious stones!
WHAT IS THE GREATEST FORCE ON EARTH THAT MAN KNOWS OF?—ATOMIC POWER! He is going to honour the power of all powers outside of God Himself & the Devil himself & his demons & the angels of Heaven! He is going to honour the power of forces, the very forces of the Universe, the forces of nature that God created, the atomic forces‚ the power of all powers outside of God & the Devil themselves. This is the god whom his fathers knew not. His fathers didn’t know anything about atomic power, right? Today Everything is run and powered in some way by computers (technology) “HE SHALL HONOUR with gold & silver & with precious stones & pleasant things.” ” a god whom his fathers knew not”
VISION: Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain. (Dan.11:39)
INTERPRETATION: Don’t you think that Image is going to be a strange god? “Whom he shall acknowledge & increase with glory: & he shall cause them to rule over many & shall divide the land for gain.” He shall cause them, his people in other words‚ & his gods in a way, all of this electronic wizardry of science, he is going to control it.
AND THIS IMAGE OF HIS IS GOING TO HAVE THE WISDOM OF THE AGES, THE KNOWLEDGE OF SATAN, the knowledge of science, the knowledge of all Mankind! All the knowledge that has ever been learned & written & developed & discovered & everything is going to be programmed into this giant super duper computer of all computers, the greatest god that Man has ever made‚ & then Man is going to fall down & worship it, his own god, made by his own hands!—No different from the heathen worshippers of idols & superstitious religions who worship idols of wood & stone, whom modern civilisation today ridicules & makes fun of‚ these superstitious ancient people that made idols of wood & stone & then fell down & worshipped the work of their own hands.
MAN IS STILL DOING IT RIGHT NOW! HE WORSHIPS THE THINGS THAT HE MAKES RIGHT NOW, THINGS! He worships the paper money that he makes himself! He worships the TVs & the cars & the electronic gadgets, & all these things that he has made himself. Finally he’s going to make virtually an Image of himself, of Man himself. Don’t you suppose that that Image is going to look like a man?—An Image of the man, the Antichrist‚ the final man, the greatest man! And Man will fall down then & worship himself‚ literally. In worshipping this Image he is worshipping himself & the work of his own hands.
“AND SHALL DIVIDE THE LAND FOR GAIN.” There are more nations divided, by the way of North & South, East & West & whatnot today than almost any time in all history.—‚ all kinds of nations have been divided.—To gain. What does he gain by that?—Power! By dividing others he gains power. It is said the principle of Communism is “divide & conquer.” You divide the enemy & he fights with himself & then you conquer him.
The Antichrist Third war with the King of the south!
VISION: And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over. (Dan.11:40)
INTERPRETATION: Now you have the final big war between Russia & the U.S. (Israel) Get it? “And with chariots & horsemen & many ships; & he shall enter into the countries & shall overflow & pass over.” Modern warfare is fought with airships, sea ships, chariots, lots of horsepower & all the rest!—Tanks, guns, personnel carriers.
When he breaks the Covenant & he invades Israel & he forces his will upon the religions & tries to force it upon the World, what do you think the U.S.A. is going to do then?—Declare that he has broken the Covenant, he has broken his word, he has defiled the Temple‚ he has abolished religion or he’s trying to! Don’t you think it’s time for them to rise up & fight! Doesn’t it sound like they do? That’s exactly what it sounds like!
“AT THE TIME OF THE END SHALL THE KING OF THE SOUTH PUSH AT HIM: And the King of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots & with horsemen & with many ships; & he shall enter into the countries & shall overflow & pass over.”—Another big war between North & South!
BUT WHO’S GOING TO WIN? The Antichrist is going to have so many ships, so many horsemen, so many chariots, like a whirlwind he’s going to overflow all of these countries & pass over. He’s going to conquer them all.
VISION: He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon. (Dan.11:41)
INTERPRETATION: “HE SHALL ENTER ALSO INTO THE GLORIOUS LAND‚ & MANY COUNTRIES SHALL BE OVERTHROWN!” Now that’s going to be in a great battle, a very great battle which we usually consider or interpret as being the atomic War!
SO THIS KING OF THE NORTH FROM RUSSIA, THE ANTICHRIST, WILL ROUND UP ALL THE POWER OF THE U.S.S.R. & Satanic power of every kind he can get, including Eastern nations that are going to help him.
“BUT THESE SHALL ESCAPE OUT OF HIS HAND, EVEN EDOM & MOAB & THE CHIEF OF THE CHILDREN OF AMMON.” Do you know what country is all three of these?—Jordan! He’ll be spared. “We’ll spare Jordan.” That was very important to dear Daniel, who was always thinking of Israel & all its neighbours. You think, “Well, why is He talking about a little country like Jordan, of all things?” Well, it was an important fact to Daniel, very important. It’s still important today if you think about it.
VISION: He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. (Dan.11:42)
INTERPRETATION: What does that show you? Egypt’s going to be on the wrong side. When the showdown comes, Egypt obviously is going to be on the wrong side, fighting right alongside the U.S. & Israel against Russia & the Antichrist government! But dear little Jordan & the Palestinians are going to be doing their best to fight the U.S. & Israel & Egypt & pave the way for the invasion of Israel by the Russians under the Antichrist!
“HE SHALL STRETCH FORTH HIS HAND UPON THE COUNTRIES“—in other words, against those countries that have fought against him‚ including Egypt. Dear Egypt is going to find out that the Arabs were right, Egypt made the wrong choice in making peace with Israel, which was like making peace with the Devil himself.
ISRAEL [AND THE ISRAELIS] ARE FIGHTING GOD in all that they are doing in the Mideast! And they are persecuting God’s people‚ His children in the Palestinians‚ & therefore the nations which side with them, like the U.S., are now the enemies of God & His people!
VISION: But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps. (Dan.11:43)
INTERPRETATION: THE ANTICHRIST IS JUST GOING TO COME DOWN & TAKE IT OVER & take everything that’s left.
“AND THE LIBYANS AND THE ETHIOPIANS SHALL BE AT HIS STEPS”
SO HERE ARE TWO COUNTRIES BOTH DOMINATED BY RUSSIA WHO ARE GOING TO BE “AT HIS STEPS” waiting on every step he makes when he walks in! When the Antichrist walks in they are going to be at his steps‚ meaning a place of submission, a place of subservience, a place of agreement, a place of cooperation. They’re going to be at his steps.
SO DO YOU WANT TO KNOW EXACTLY WHERE ALL THESE PEOPLE ARE GOING TO FIT? HERE IT IS RIGHT IN THE BIBLE! Plain as day! And if you want to know where the rest of’m are going to fit, they’re all named in Ezekiel 38 & 39!
Ezekiel 38 also names the Ethiopians and Libyans being involved with the armies of Magog (Russia), as well as Persia (Iran). He passes all the way down to Egypt, apparently skirting the lands of Edom, Moab, and Ammon (modern-day Jordan), and the prominent people of that area are spared. And somehow Ethiopians and Libyans are involved in his invasion forces.
The Antichrist war with eastern and northern nations!
VISION: But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many. (Dan.11:44)
INTERPRETATION: Now apparently while he’s busy fighting this war down in the Mideast‚ as so often happens to a king away from home, somebody tries to cause him trouble back at home. A lot of kings have been deposed while they were out of the country or absent on a conquest! This is a common event in history.
WELL, WHAT IS THE MAJOR FEAR OF RUSSIA THAT’S IN THE EAST?— POSSIBLY CHINA!
China is certainly one big one. But in the Bible the Arabs are Kings of the East‚ really. The Muslims are spread clear across from Africa all through the East, they’re in almost every country in the World! So then he’s going to start having trouble with the Arabs, the Muslims, & the Chinese!—The East!—And various other Eastern nations in the East which are going to be enemies of Russia & which Russia will be fighting someday. He’s got trouble from everywhere! God says, “I will trouble them that tribulate you!” (2Th.1:6) So he’s got nothing but trouble, he’s fighting anything & everybody all over the World!—East, West‚ South & even in his home country of the North he’s got enemies that are trying to take over. He hears tidings out of the North, even from his own base country, & he hears tidings out of the East from former enemies who are trying to rebel against him. But he goes forth with great fury to destroy & utterly to make away many!
APPARENTLY WHILE HE’S GONE FROM MOSCOW OR WHEREVER IN THE NORTH THERE, SOMEBODY TRIES TO GIVE HIM SOME TROUBLE, maybe somebody else tries to take over. Maybe somebody sees he’s having such tremendous success, he’s conquering the whole Mideast, he’s conquering Israel & all those countries & winning the Oil States & defeating America, somebody back in Moscow says, “Ah! Now’s the time for us to kick him out & take over!” Uh-uh! They’re not gonna be able to do it, because he’s going to turn around in such fury!
EVERY KING, EVERY WORLD DICTATOR, WORLD EMPEROR, HAS HAD THESE SAME KINDS OF TROUBLES, THEY’VE ALWAYS HAD TO FIGHT WARS TO KEEP THE PEACE, SO TO SPEAK. That’s what they claim they’re fighting them for. But they fight wars really to keep their place, not just the peace!—To keep their position, to keep their power, to continue to rule‚ & he’s no different from the rest of them. He’s having to fight wars. So obviously they didn’t all accept the Mark of the Beast & obviously not everybody is his friend, not everybody in the World! Although the 13th Chapter of Revelation says, “And all the World wondered after the Beast,” they were amazed by him, it doesn’t mean they all followed him, it doesn’t mean they all accepted his Mark! He’s going to amaze the whole World with supernatural miracles & his power & his ability to fight wars & conquer the World, & of all people‚ conquer the Jews & America & the East & the West & the North & South! But he still has all these wars with them—trouble‚ trouble, trouble!
THERE IS AT LEAST ONE VERY MILITANT RELIGION OF THE EAST THAT WOULD BE WILLING TO FIGHT HIM TO THE DEATH, & they would probably lead other forces of other religions as well in one last stand, one last attempt by the other peoples of the World, the Anti-Antichrists, the Arabs, the Muslims Etc, to try to get rid of him & free the World from this monster, this Beast! So they go to battle with him, they come from the East, & where do they wind up? As we already know, in the final major battle of this final great war of the Antichrist!—Armageddon!
HE KEEPS RIGHT ON BATTLING AFTER JESUS HAS TAKEN US OUT OF THIS WORLD, & he keeps right on battling unto the bitter end with his enemies‚ until he’s battling them in the Battle of Armageddon, the Valley of Megiddo, the Valley of Jezreel, & right on up to the very walls of Jerusalem, in what’s called the Valley of Jehoshaphat! It means the Valley of Decision. It was named after the old King Jehoshaphat. The Scripture says, “Multitudes, multitudes in the Valley of Decision!” You look up that Scripture. (Joel 3:14) “Multitudes, multitudes!”—Millions of people in this final big battle stretching 200 miles from Armageddon clear to the walls of Jerusalem in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, the Valley of Decision, it’s called.
HERE’S WHERE THE FINAL DECISION IS GOING TO BE MADE! Everything before this has been somewhat indecisive, he still hasn’t really conquered the World, he still hasn’t really made it, he’s still got enemies, he’s still got powerful nations of millions of people fighting him! It’s been indecisive so far. He’s only kept the upper hand on occasion in some places in some ways with some peoples. But actually he hasn’t really totally conquered the World, never, & never will. Because the only ones who are going to do that are the ones who are going to come down to the Valley of Decision & the Valley of Megiddo & conquer him! Jesus and the Saints In the Battle of… ( Armageddon!)— (Rev.19:17-21)
(Rev.16:13-14, And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.)
The Antichrist makes Jerusalem his headquarters!
VISION: And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him. (Dan.11:45)
INTERPRETATION: Now where else could that be but Jerusalem. “He shall plant the tabernacle of his palace”—where is he going to set up his headquarters? It doesn’t say he goes over to the Catholic Church & It doesn’t say the Mosque of Omar of the Muslims, does it? But what area is he going to make his palace, His capital? “Between the seas” the Dead Sea & the Mediterranean! Jerusalem.
“IN THE GLORIOUS HOLY MOUNTAIN!” There’s only one glorious holy mountain in the whole World that all three faiths could call a glorious holy mountain! And the prophet that’s talking is a Jew & his God‚ Jesus, was a Jew, no doubt the One revealing all this to them. He said even the dust of the Earth was precious to Him & its stones were precious to Him because so much of their history has revolved around there. So much of what God did & was going to do & is yet going to do happens there!
THAT CITY OF OLD JERUSALEM REVELATION ITSELF SPEAKS OF AS SODOM & GOMORRAH & WHERE ALL THE PROPHETS HAVE BEEN KILLED‚ INCLUDING JESUS! (Rev.11:8) He makes old Jerusalem virtually symbolic of all the most ungodly cities in the World!
IN SPITE OF THE PERFIDY OF THE ISRAELIS, THE LAND OF ISRAEL IS VERY PRECIOUS TO THE LORD, because His Prophets & His Patriarchs & His people dwelt there for millenniums & some of that greatest of all Bible history occurred there. Jesus lived there & died there, so the land itself is precious to the Lord. And that mountain upon which the rock still stands where Abraham started to sacrifice Isaac, don’t you think that’s a precious place to the Lord too? And where the Temple once stood, don’t you think that & the history revolving around it is precious to the Lord?
THE LAND IS PRECIOUS TO THE LORD, NOT THOSE [ISRAELIS] THAT ARE THERE TODAY! But the land, Israel, is precious to the Lord because of its place in history & because of the terrific historical events that have occurred there & the people that He loved that lived there once upon a time—the Patriarchs, the Prophets, Jesus, the Apostles & all of those. Therefore that place is dearer to God’s heart than any other geographical location in the whole World! Because more Bible history, more Christian history has centred on that little tiny spot on this Earth than any place else on Earth, & therefore is more important to the Lord & more important therefore to the Antichrist because it is the centre of the World’s three greatest religions!
THIS IS THE HOLIEST PLACE ON EARTH TO ALL THREE OF THE WORLD’S GREATEST RELIGIONS: CHRISTIANITY, JUDAISM & ISLAM. Therefore the Antichrist, when he takes over the World, is going to make that his capital, his palace, his headquarters. He is going to plant his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain.—Mount Moriah, Jerusalem!
RIGHT THERE ON TOP OF MOUNT MORIAH WHERE TODAY STANDS THAT ROCK & THE MUSLIM SHRINE‚ THE MOSQUE OF OMAR over the rock, called the Dome of the Rock‚ & where will stand the rebuilt Temple of the Jews when the Covenant is made & they’re permitted to rebuild it, or they might even start rebuilding before that.
THE ANTICHRIST KNOWS THE VALUE OF THAT SPOT AS WELL AS GOD. The Devil knows the value of that spot geographically, its military strategic location, its geographic strategy, its religious importance, its political importance, its historical importance. It is the most important spot on the face of the Earth to both God & the Devil & the Antichrist & almost all religions & religionists—at least the World’s three greatest religions—the most important spot in the World to so many religious people! So it’s going to be his most important spot from which he plans to rule the World & dominate those religions & the World & its government.
WELL, IT LOOKS LIKE SINCE THE ANTICHRIST IS THE DEVIL IN THE FLESH, OR WILL BE‚ IT LOOKS LIKE THE WRONG PEOPLE HAVE WON! It looks like the Devil has won, the Antichrist has won, the forces of Russia & Communism have won. The forces of the West, the South & the East have been defeated. The forces of Capitalism certainly lost, in fact‚ will be virtually wiped out in the Atomic War! It will look to many Christians who don’t know the Word of God like the wrong side has won. And in a sense, because it is the Antichrist empowered by the Devil & the anti-Christ forces of the World who have won, it is the wrong side.
AND THAT’S WHY HE THROWS IN A LITTLE ENCOURAGEMENT HERE TO THESE JEWS TO WHOM HE WAS TALKING, to Daniel in particular: “But don’t worry, Daniel, this guy who is the enemy of the Jews & the enemy of Israel & the enemy of God‚ he is not going to win the final battle! He has won this battle & one stage of the war & he has taken over the World & he has won the World, but only temporarily.” For, what?
“YET SHALL HE COME TO HIS END & NONE SHALL HELP HIM.” The time is coming when the Antichrist comes to his end & nobody will be able to help him, nobody will any longer be his friend. You know, there’s nobody that loses friends like a loser, & eventually he’s going to lose & nobody will be left to be his friend & nobody will be able to help him, he will come to his end.
THE LORD IS GOING TO ALLOW THE ANTICHRIST TO OVERCOME THE CHURCH, not spiritually, but in its temporal power. As far as its material power, its organisational power, its building power, its monetary power, its prestige with the government and all of this, the church is going to be a dead duck. But when he has accomplished to do this, when it looks like we’ve lost and he’s won—at the end of 3 1/2 times—then GOD STEPS IN TO GIVE US THE GREATEST VICTORY THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN.
“And at that time (at the end of those last 3 1/2 years) thy people shall be delivered“, every one that shall be found written in the book. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” (Dan.12:1b-3)
Here we have the true hope of all true Christians—the second Coming of Jesus Christ and the resurrection Notice it doesn’t say that all are resurrected, but “many.” The Bible says THERE ARE TWO RESURRECTIONS, ONE OF THE RIGHTEOUS AND ONE OF THE WICKED. (Rev.20:4–6; Jn.5:28,29) If it said “all” here it would mean both of these, but “many” implies only one. And it is evident that the one spoken of here is the resurrection of the righteous, those who have accepted Jesus.
Now if the righteous are taken away at the end of this last 3 1/2 years of Great Tribulation what’s going to happen to all those left behind?
THE WRATH OF GOD, that’s what! Daniel 9:27 says that at the “consummation” or completion of the seven-year covenant “THAT WHICH IS DETERMINED SHALL BE POURED OUT UPON THE WICKED.” Revelation chapter 16 likens God’s wrath unto seven vials which will be “poured out” upon the wicked. This is when God turns all their seas, rivers and waters into the blood of a dead man, causes the sun’s heat to scorch men with fire, and smites them with noisome sores.
This period of GOD’S WRATH BEGINS AT THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST to take away His saints at the resurrection and rapture, and culminates with the return of Jesus and the saints, who have been in heaven during this time, to finally take the world in a monstrous battle called Armageddon. Read all about it in the 16th and 19th chapters of Revelation.
WE WILL COME & WIPE OUT HIS FORCES & HIS ARMY & HIS BEAST-MARKED PEOPLE‚ & back in Daniel 8:25 it says “he shall be broken without hand.” He’ll be destroyed. You won’t even have to use your hands, maybe you can just go zap & zap him with your eyes! He shall be broken in some mysterious way, supernaturally without hand, & his forces, at the end of the Battle of Armageddon!
CONCLUSION: These events described in Daniel’s visions have happened and are happening just as predicted. So what does that mean to you? It means that IF THIS IS TRUE‚ SO ALSO IS THE REST OF GOD’S WORD, which tells us, “For God so loved the world‚ that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
It means that YOU ARE NOW FACED WITH A DECISION TO EITHER SERVE THE DEVIL AND HIS SYSTEM OR TO DROP OUT AND SERVE GOD AND HIS KINGDOM. As Jesus said, “No man can serve two masters,” and he “that forsaketh not all that he hath‚ he cannot be My disciple.” (Lk.16:13; 14:33) Which will you do? The choice is yours!
TAKE JESUS NOW, BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
BLESS NOW, LORD, AS WE STUDY, I’m leaving this Word here behind that they may know what’s happening! “So that they of understanding shall instruct many! They that do know their God shall do exploits!” Hallelujah! TYJ! PYL! (Dan.11:32-33)
LORD BLESS THEIR TESTIMONY! BLESS THEIR WITNESS! Give them great courage & faith to stand out against the Enemy & to stand up for the Truth & to fearlessly give their testimony, Lord, & willingly‚ gladly die as a witness & as a martyr for You‚ Jesus! You died for us, why shouldn’t we be willing to die for You & for others? In Jesus’ name! Help us, Lord, most of all to live for You, now, here, today & every day until that time comes, in Jesus’ name. Amen! We love you!
