Fulfillment of Dan 11:1-2 (BD35)

Mat 24:15 "Therefore when you see the 'abomination of desolation,' spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place" (whoever reads, let him understand),"
    Regardless of how liberal scholars and doubting theologians now view Daniel, our Lord Jesus proclaimed him a prophet (Matt. 24:15; Mark 13:14). Therefore, we can trust all the prophecies given to Daniel and not the heresies of those faithless theologians.
(Historic events below are taken from commentaries)

Dan 11:1 "Also in the first year of Darius the Mede, I, even I, stood up to confirm and strengthen him."
    In the Dan 9:1-2, we see that in the first year of Darius the Mede, Daniel realized how long Jerusalem would remain desolate (70 years), based on the prophecies of Jeremiah. Because of this realization and in accordance with God's instructions in the Torah (Lev 26:40-42), Daniel prayed to God and confessed the sins of his people (Dan. 9:3-19). After doing so, Gabriel was sent to Daniel and gave him the prophecy of the 70 weeks (Dan. 9:24-27), which was the timeline showing when the Messiah would appear in Israel.

Dan 11:2 And now I will tell you the truth: Behold, three more kings will arise in Persia, and the fourth shall be far richer than them all; by his strength, through his riches, he shall stir up all against the realm of Greece."
   The mention of Darius the Mede here by Gabriel is not random, but was rather intended to point Daniel (and us) back to this previously specified period of time in order to understand when the prophetic events he is about to outline would occur. Therefore, we can look for the fulfillment of this prophecy within that prophesied 70 x 7(week) years.
   This prophecy was given in the third year of Cyrus, king of Persia (c. 535 BCE). The next three Medo-Persian kings after Cyrus were:
1. his son, Cambyses II (530-522 BCE);
2. Gaumata the Magian (also known as the pseudo-Smerdis – 522 BCE); and
3. the Persian Darius I (the Great – 522-486 BCE).

The fourth king was Xerxes (486-465 BCE).
    Xerxes' mother was Atossa, the daughter of Cyrus the Great. His father, Darius the Great, left him the task of punishing the Greeks for their part in the Ionian rebellion (499-494 BCE) and their defeat of the Persian army at the battle of Marathon (490 BCE).
    Xerxes began extensively preparing for his expedition against the Greeks in 483 BCE by raising money and accumulating provisions. He had a channel dug through the isthmus of the peninsula of Mount Athos, stored supplies along the road through Thrace, and had two bridges constructed across the Hellespont. In preparation to punish the Greeks, Xerxes also entered into an alliance with Carthage. Even many of the smaller Greek states sided with the Persians. A large fleet and a vast army (numbered by some at over two million men) were gathered. He certainly did "stir up all against the kingdom of Greece."
    In the spring of 480 BCE, Xerxes set out from Sardis. At first, he was victorious. But when Xerxes attacked the Greek fleet under negative conditions at the Battle of Salamis (September 28, 480 BCE), he lost, even though his fleet was more than three times as large as the Greek navy (1,207 ships to 371).
   Xerxes was forced to retire to Sardis, and the army which he left in Greece was annihilated the following year. The Delian League (also known as the Athenian Empire), was formed in 477 BCE as a defensive alliance of the Greek city-states against the Persians.

The First Three Beasts (BD34)

Dan 7.2 Daniel spoke, saying, "I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.
    Daniel saw 4 beasts representing the 4 Empires before His last days' judgement.

   Lion - Babylonian Empire
Dan 7.3-4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man's heart was given to it.
    The lion, the first beast represented the great and powerful Babylonian Empire started by King Nebuchadnezzar, who conquered the whole of the Middle East. He was so proud of his success, that he boasted of his great ability and might. God humbled him to live like an animal for seven years and his hair was like eagle's feathers. After his repentance God restored him back to his kingship.
Dan 4:33 That very hour the word was fulfilled concerning Nebuchadnezzar; he was driven from men and ate grass like oxen; his body was wet with the dew of heaven till his hair had grown like eagles' feathers and his nails like birds' claws.
  Bear - Mede-Persian Empire
Dan 11:1-2 "Also in the first year of Darius the Mede, I, even I, stood up to confirm and strengthen. And now I will tell you the truth: Behold, three more kings will arise in Persia, and the fourth shall be far richer than them all; by his strength, through his riches, he shall stir up all against the realm of Greece."
    This bear, the second beast will be the powerful and fearful Mede-Persian Empire, which will replace the Babylonian Empire. After King Darius there will be four more kings. The 4th king will attack Greece and by its defeat will destroy all the wealth, prosperity and power accumulated by the previous 3 kings.
Dan 7:5 "And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: 'Arise, devour much flesh!' "

    Leopard - Grecian Empire
Dan 11:3-4 Then a mighty king shall arise, who shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. And when he has arisen, his kingdom shall be broken up and divided toward the four winds of heaven, but not among his posterity nor according to his dominion with which he ruled; for his kingdom shall be uprooted, even for others besides these.
    The leopard the third beast known for its speed, will represent the Grecian Empire, where Alexander the great conquered Turkey, the whole Middle East, Egypt and part of India in a very short period. After the death of Alexander, his Empire was broken up into 4 kingdoms ruled by his 4 generals.
1. Greece and Macedonia
Gen. Cassander took control of Greece and Macedonia;
2. Turkey
Gen. Lysimachus took control of Thrace and most of Asia Minor;
3. Southern kingdom
Gen. Ptolemy took control of Egypt, Israel and Petra.
4. Northern kingdom
Gen. Seleucus took control of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon (former Persian Empire).
Dan 7:6 "After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it."

Fasting of Daniel (BD33)

Dan 10:1-3 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a message was revealed to Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar. The message was true, but the appointed time was long; and he understood the message, and had understanding of the vision. In those days I, Daniel, was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.
    Daniel fasted 3 weeks without food and drink (including water). Moses fasted 40 days up in Mount Sinai without food and water. Similarly our Lord Jesus Christ fasted forty days in the wilderness without food and water.
    Fasting means no food nor drink (including water) for the whole period of fast. Surprisingly, so-called servants of God are teaching Christians dieting instead of fasting ( i.e taking juices or fruits or reducing the meals). Dieting is not fasting. Human diet mainly for reasons of health or beauty.
    Brethren do not deceive yourself that you are fasting (holy, holy) when you are actually dieting for your personal benefit.
Isa 58:3-5 'Why have we fasted,' they say, 'and You have not seen? Why have we afflicted our souls, and You take no notice?' "In fact, in the day of your fast you find pleasure, and exploit all your laborers. Indeed you fast for strife and debate, and to strike with the fist of wickedness. You will not fast as you do this day, to make your voice heard on high. Is it a fast that I have chosen, a day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head like a bulrush, and to spread out sackcloth and ashes? Would you call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord?

Isa 58:6-8 "Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke? Is it not to share your bread with the hungry, and that you bring to your house the poor who are cast out; when you see the naked, that you cover him, and not hide yourself from your own flesh? Then your light shall break forth like the morning, your healing shall spring forth speedily, and your righteousness shall go before you; the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
    Fasting is to afflict oneself so that we experience the sufferings of the hungry poor and needy. It also helps to make us more merciful and compassionate.

Dan 10:5,12 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a certain man clothed in linen, whose waist was girded with gold of Uphaz!.. And he said to me, "O Daniel, man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you." While he was speaking this word to me, I stood trembling. Then he said to me, "Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words.
    After the fasting of Daniel, God sent the angel to Daniel addressing him as the man greatly beloved of God and also showed him a vision.
    I believe that if our sincere and humble fastings are pleasing to Him, we will see His presence with the manifestations of signs and wonders: - enlightenments, healings, deliverance, understandings, truth, etc.
Dan 10:14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come. "

Timeline of Jerusalem (BD32)

Dan 9:27 "Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate."
    After World War 3 and the natural calamities killing a quarter of mankind, the Antichrist will make a seven year treaty to allow only the Jews to rebuild Jerusalem and the temple of God. After three and a half years the Antichrist will proclaim himself god at the dedication of the temple just before he was killed by the coming of our Lord at Rapture. This three and a half years will be the period of the wrath of Satan in Rev 13 or the period of tribulation in the gospels.

     Wing of abominations
The Antichrist, with demonic (abomination) power (wing), will reinstitute animal sacrifices during the rebuilding of the temple of God. However, during the dedication of the temple with countless animal sacrificed, the Antichrist will be found to be seated on the mercy seat declaring himself god. He will make it easy for all to worship him by abolishing the offering of animal sacrifices. Mankind can bow down to worship him in front of the TV or handphone tuned to his image. With demonic powers (on the wing of abominations), the Antichrist will deceive many Christians to destroy (desolate) their faith in our Lord and His words causing them to apostate by accepting the mark of the Beast or '666'

          After Rapture
The 2 witness will appear to stop everyone from entering the temple of Antichrist (God) indirectly abolishing the 'One World Religion'. The people with the mark of the Beast will attack the 2 witnesses, who prevent them from worshipping god (Antichrist).
   After the death of the 2 witnesses, the people will try to conquer Jerusalem, but our Lord Jesus will come and stand on Mount Olive and then kill all the enemies surrounding Jerusalem.
Zec 14:12 And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet, their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets, and their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.

   Jesus' Millennium Rule
Rev20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
    After the wrath of God, our Lord Jesus will come with His saints to establish Jerusalem as His holy city (seven years after the peace treaty was signed, thus completing the 70x7 years needed to prepare Jerusalem as His holy city) so that all nations can come to learn from the Lord.
Mic 4:2 Many nations shall come and say, "Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths." For out of Zion the law shall go forth, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

       The New Jerusalem
Rev 21:2 Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
    After judgment and the creation of the new heaven and the new earth, the new Jerusalem (housing the bride of the Lamb) will come down from heaven to the new earth.

Preparation of Jerusalem (BD31)

Dan 9:24a, 26 "Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city, to finish the transgression... And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined."
    God claimed Jerusalem to be His holy city, and it will take Him 70x7 years from King Cyrus' command to transform Jerusalem into His holy city, where He will rule the whole world in righteousness and holiness. At the crucifixion of the Messiah, only 69x7 years had passed, thus leaving the final 7 years to complete His work of making Jerusalem His holy city.
    As soon as the Jews crucified the Messiah, the veil of the temple was torn into two signifying the departure of God thereby ending Judaism thus resulting in God to immediately stop working with the Israelites and Jerusalem. God did not immediately destroy the temple of God nor Jerusalem because He knew that devout Jews from far away countries would come back to celebrate the various feasts of the Lord in Jerusalem.
     At the feast of Pentecost, 3,000 devout Jews were baptized and added to the body of Christ. Also in Act 18:29-21, Paul rushed back to Jerusalem for the feast so that he could reach out to more devout Jews for their salvation in Christ Jesus.

Luke 21:5-6 Then, as some spoke of the temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and donations, He said, "These things which you see -- the days will come in which not one stone shall be left upon another that shall not be thrown down."
    At about 70 AD or 40 years after the crucifixion of our Lord Jesus, God allowed General Titus to conquer and destroy both Jerusalem and the temple of God. The destruction of the temple was so complete that not one stone was on top of the other. Since then the Jews were scattered throughout he whole world. So the western (wailing) wall could not be part of the temple of God and why are the Jews idolising it? God drove the Jews out of Israel and Jerusalem to give the land of Israel its Sabbath.
   Since Israel became a nation in 1948, without the temple of God and gay parades, Jerusalem is far from becoming the holy city of God.

     The Last Seven Years
Dan 9:27 "Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week He shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate."
    The final week of the 70 weeks can only be in the last days when all Israel will accept our Lord Jesus as their Messiah. The final seven years will begin with the seven year treaty for all descendant of Jacob to migrate back to Israel to rebuild the temple of God and Jerusalem. The great earthquakes and tsunamis (flood) which will end World War 3 will kill hundreds of millions of people and will completely destroy Jerusalem.
Luke 21:24 "And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled."

  Priesthood to rebuild Temple
To deceive the Jews, the Antichrist will not allow anyone to migrate back to Jerusalem to rebuild it except for the Jews. The Jewish priesthood will be given all the powers to rebuild the temple of God and Jerusalem, and also to rule Jerusalem.

Timeline of the Israelites (BD30)

Dan 9:23-24 At the beginning of your supplications the command went out, and I have come to tell you, for you are greatly beloved; therefore consider the matter, and understand the vision: "Seventy weeks are determined for your people and for your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy."
    God will require seventy weeks (70 X 7 = 490 years) to complete His work with the Israelites, which will fulfill the followings:-
1. To finish transgression
There will no longer be any more laws to fulfill.
2. End of sins
The Israelites will no longer commit any sin for they will all come under the rule by our Lord.
3. Reconciliation of iniquity
All their sins, transgressions​ and iniquities will be forgiven
4. Everlasting righteousness
The Israelites will all become Christians with His righteousness
5. Seal up all vision
All visions of Israel will be fulfilled for the kingdom of Christ will be on earth then
6. Fulfill all prophecies
Similarly, all prophecies concerning the Israelites will also all be fulfilled.
7. Anoint the Most Holy
For they all will accept our Lord Jesus as their Messiah.

Rev 11:15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!"
    The fulfilments of all the above will be at the establishment of the kingdom of Christ or the Millennium Rule of our Lord Jesus on earth.
 Command to rebuilt Jerusalem
Daniel 9:25 "Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublesome times."
    From King's Cyrus command to rebuild and restore Jerusalem till its completion will be seven weeks or 7 X 7 = 49 years. From the completion of the walls of Jerusalem to the Messiah will be 62 weeks or 62 X 7 = 434 years.

     Death of the Messiah
Dan 9:26a "And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself;"
    Had the Jews believed the book of Daniel, they would have realized that they had crucified their Messiah at exactly 69 weeks after King Cyrus command to rebuild Jerusalem as prophesied by Daniel. Then all the Jews would have accepted our Lord Jesus as their Messiah, had it not been for the deceptions of the misled priesthood, Pharisees and Jewish leaders.
    They too would have realized that their Messiah was afflicted for their infirmities​, and He was crucified as the sacrificial Lamb of God for their transgressions or sins (Messiah shall be cut off, not for Himself but for the sins of the world).
    Unfortunately, none of these blind, covetous and powerful priesthood and Jewish leaders were able to warn the Jews of the season of the coming of the Messiah ( who will declare His generation?), except for a few, including Zachariah the priest, John the Baptist, etc.
Isa 53:7-8 He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment, and who will declare His generation? For He was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgressions of My people He was stricken.

Effective Prayer of Daniel (BD29)

Dan 9:12-13 And He has confirmed His words, which He spoke against us and against our judges who judged us, by bringing upon us a great disaster; for under the whole heaven such has never been done as what has been done to Jerusalem. "As it is written in the Law of Moses, all this disaster has come upon us; yet we have not made our prayer before the Lord our God, that we might turn from our iniquities and understand Your truth."
    Daniel admitted that God was right in annihilating Jerusalem for He had constantly warned the judges and kings of His covenant with them but they refused to listen. Though God had constantly sent disasters after disasters for their disobedience, yet they had not come before Him with prayers of repentance and the understanding the truth.
    His final judgment though extremely harsh, was the annihilation of Jerusalem and all the inhabitants were taken as captives to a foreign land as slaves. As a righteous God, He had no other choice but to destroy Jerusalem as He had promised in His covenant.

Dan 9:14-15 Therefore the Lord has kept the disaster in mind, and brought it upon us; for the Lord our God is righteous in all the works which He does, though we have not obeyed His voice. And now, O Lord our God, who brought Your people out of the land of Egypt with a mighty hand, and made Yourself a name, as it is this day— we have sinned, we have done wickedly!"
    'We have sinned, we have done wickedly' was the resonance reaching the ears of God. This was the type of prayers and intercessions of Daniel for Israel - the repentance of the sins and wickedness of the people.
    Daniel, a righteous man and the greatly beloved of God, humbled himself by associating himself with the sinful Israelites and accepting their chastisements (annihilation of Jerusalem, their defeat, shame and humility as captives and slaves of the Babylonians)
as the righteousness of God.
Dan 10:11 And he said to me, "O Daniel, man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you." While he was speaking this word to me, I stood trembling.

Dan 9:20-22 Now while I was speaking, praying, and confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my supplication before the Lord my God for the holy mountain of my God, yes, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the beginning, being caused to fly swiftly, reached me about the time of the evening offering. And he informed me, and talked with me, and said, "O Daniel, I have now come forth to give you skill to understand.
    When the prayers and intercessions of Daniel for Jerusalem and Israel pleased God, God gave him the skill of understanding the future of Israel.
Note - Not like those unlearned and blind pastors and church leaders, Daniel did not pray against God's will to destroy the Babylonians nor blame the devil for their miseries, but submit to His will for the chastisements.
Jude 1:9-10 Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!" But these speak evil of whatever they do not know; and whatever they know naturally, like brute beasts, in these things they corrupt themselves.

Brethren, when our prayers and intercessions are pleasing to Him, He will bless us with understanding. Then we do not need to live in darkness nor fear the coming Endtime events.

Daniel's Understanding (BD28)

    The Vision to the Jews
Dan 9:1-2 In the first year of Darius the son of Ahasuerus, of the lineage of the Medes, who was made king over the realm of the Chaldeans— in the first year of his reign I, Daniel, understood by the books the number of the years specified by the word of the Lord through Jeremiah the prophet, that He would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.
    Daniel having understood the prophecies of Jeremiah and the will of God for the Israelites to be captives for seventy years, he knew how to pray.
    Brethren, do you know God's will for you so that your prayers are pleasing to Him? Or are you blindly praying for those blessings which are only temporal?

Confession of His faithfulness
Dan 9:3-4 Then I set my face toward the Lord God to make request by prayer and supplications, with fasting, sackcloth, and ashes. And I prayed to the Lord my God, and made confession, and said, "O Lord, great and awesome God, who keeps His covenant and mercy with those who love Him, and with those who keep His commandments.
    He acknowledged that Yahweh, the great and awesome God will always be:-
1. Covenant keeping
2. Merciful to those who love Him
3. Merciful to those who keep His commandments.
John 14:21 "He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him."

  Confession of Israel's Sins
Dan 9:5-6 we have sinned and committed iniquity, we have done wickedly and rebelled, even by departing from Your precepts and Your judgments. Neither have we heeded Your servants the prophets, who spoke in Your name to our kings and our princes, to our fathers and all the people of the land.
    During his stay as a captive in Babylon, though Daniel was living in luxury, highly respected and treated as a great prophet of God, yet he desired the freedom to worship God in Jerusalem.
    Brethren, do we have the same vision to prepare our eternal heavenly home so that we can be with Him in the Kingdom of God. Or that we have been deceived to love this world again and only want to establish ourselves here?
2John 2:15-17 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.

   His Righteous Judgments
Dan 9:7-8 O Lord, righteousness belongs to You, but to us shame of face, as it is this day—to the men of Judah, to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and all Israel, those near and those far off in all the countries to which You have driven them, because of the unfaithfulness which they have committed against You. "O Lord, to us belongs shame of face, to our kings, our princes, and our fathers, because we have sinned against You."
   Because of their unfaithfulness, they accepted the punishment of being defeated and made to be shameful captives, which they deserved.
     Brethren, do we accept the chastisements of God for our weaknesses? Or are we so blind to think that we are so godly that we blame the devil (attacking us), for our chastisements?

The Ram and Male Goat (BD27)

Mede-Persian Empire
Dan 8:1, 3, 20 In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar a vision appeared to me -- to me, Daniel -- after the one that appeared to me the first time... Then I lifted my eyes and saw, and there, standing beside the river, was a ram which had two horns, and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last.
    This 2nd vision was during the time of King Belshazzar, the last king of the Babylonian Empire. This ram, representing the Mede-Persian Empire, was prophesied to conquer and replace the Babylonian Empire.
Dan 8:20 "The ram which you saw, having the two horns -- they are the kings of Media and Persia."

Alexander and Grecian Empire
Dan 8:5, 8 And as I was considering, suddenly a male goat came from the west, across the surface of the whole earth, without touching the ground; and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes... Therefore the male goat grew very great; but when he became strong, the large horn was broken, and in place of it four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven.
    Alexander the Great (male goat) from Greece was so powerful that he annihilated the Mede-Persian Empire. Within a short period of 11 years, he ruled the areas from Greece, Persia, Egypt and to India. Unfortunately, he was without a descendent to succeed him.
   After the death of Alexander the Great, the Grecian Empire was broken up into 4 kingdoms under the control of each General.
1. Greece and Macedonia
Gen. Cassander took control of Greece and Macedonia;
2. Turkey
Gen. Lysimachus took control of Thrace and most of Asia Minor;
3. Southern kingdom
Gen. Ptolemy took control of Egypt, Israel and Petra.
4. Northern kingdom
Gen. Seleucus took control of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon (former Persian Empire).
Dan 8:21-22 And the male goat is the kingdom of Greece. The large horn that is between its eyes is the first king. As for the broken horn and the four that stood up in its place, four kingdoms shall arise out of that nation, but not with its power.

    The Last Days' Antichrist
Dan 8:23-25 "And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise, having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes. His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; he shall destroy fearfully, and shall prosper and thrive; He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people. Through his cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; and he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human means."
    Surprisingly, from the historical events of the Grecian Empire which was more than two thousand two hundred years ago, his following prophecies were for the last days only.
Note :- The prophecies of Daniel concerning the conquerors of Israel were from the Babylonian to the Grecian Empires only.
Daniel prophesied that in the last days, the Endtime Antichrist will come out from one of these four Grecian kingdoms.
2Thess2:3-5 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things?

The Two Witnesses (BD26)

Dan 7:27 Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.'
    After the death of the Antichrist at Rapture, our Lord will be given full control of the whole world. Since all Christians, who had overcome the three and a half years of persecution, temptations and deceptions of the Antichrist, have been taken back to heaven at Rapture, then who are those left behind on earth?

1. 144,000 Israelites, who believe our Lord Jesus at Rapture.
Rev 7:3-4 saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads." And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:
    Since the Holy Spirit has gone back to heaven along with the saints at Rapture, these new Israeli Christians (former devout Jews) will be sealed by God to prevent them from being harmed by His wrath.

2. Jews who had not taken the mark of the beast
Rev 11:11b ..And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.
   Some Jews without the mark of the beast will repent and accept our Lord Jesus.

3. All those with mark of the beast
Rev 14:9-10 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
    Even after the death of the Antichrist, all those with the mark of the beast will still disobey our Lord and will still keep the 'One World Religion' by serving and worshipping in temple of God (Antichrist).

      The Two Witnesses
Rev 11:1-6 Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, "Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth... And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire."
    After Rapture, Jerusalem will be controlled by the 'One World Order' for 42 months. God will then send the two witnesses to seal off the temple of God to prevent everyone (including priesthood) from entering, thereby abolishing the 'One World Religion'.
    Meanwhile the two witnesses will constantly call calamities upon the earth for their disobedience to His words as His wrath (7 bowls/vials or 7 trumpets).

Antichrist killed at Rapture (BD25)

Dan 7:13-14 "I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.
    This looks like Rapture when our Lord Jesus Christ (Son of man) will come in the cloud to deliver His saints from the deceptions and wrath of the Antichrist (Satan).
Dan 7:21-22 "I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.

Testing and refining of Christians
Rev 13:5-7 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.
    God will allow the Antichrist to persecute, torture and martyr His saints for three and a half years. This will really be a time of testing, cleansing and refining of Christians so that they will be worthy to taken up at Rapture. These victorious saints will serve the King of kings and the Lord of lords as His lords and kings.
Rev 7:13-15 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?" And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.

    Antichrist killed at Rapture
Dan 11:45 And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas on (and) the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.
    The Antichrist will rebuild the temple of God on the Temple Mount (glorious holy mountain) between the Mediterranean Sea and the Dead Sea. He will be killed (no one can help him) by the breath of our Lord and the brightness of His coming at Rapture.
2Thess 2:8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

  End of the Antichrist's Power
Dan 7:25-26 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time. 'But the court shall be seated, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and destroy it forever.'

Reincarnation of Satan (BD24)

Summary of the 4th Beast
Daniel 7:7 "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns."
1. 4th Beast (leg of iron) will be the Alliance of Iran, who defeated Israel, the West and the Sunni Arabs. It does not form any Empire like the others (different)
2. After World War 3, this victorious Alliance (4th Beast)  will form the 'One World Order' (feet of iron and clay)
3. This 'One World Order' will under the administration of 10 kings (horns) from both political and religious divides (10 toes of iron and clay)
4. Out of these 10 kings, another king (Antichrist) who will blaspheme God, will replace 3 kings
Daniel 7:24-25 The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; he shall be different from the first ones, and shall subdue three kings. He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time.
    God will allow the Antichrist to persecute Christian (saints) for three and a half years prior to Rapture. Even if the mark of the beast has been imposed upon all those who wants to buy and sell during this period, do not fear for our Lord will nourish us divinely.
Rev 12:7-9, 13-14 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him... Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

  Coming of Satan as Antichrist
Dan 2:43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.
    What does this mean: they will mingle with the seed of men. Are we going to see those men of renown again, which were human hybrid - children of  fallen angel and human (women) or just the reincarnation of Satan?
Gen 6:2, 4 There were giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
       The Endtime Antichrist
I believe that three and a half years before Rapture the Antichrist (with great demonic powers), who led the victorious alliance of Iran, will be killed to enable the reincarnation of Satan. As a member of the 'One World Order' and the head of the 'One World Religion', his dead body will be on display for the people to pay their respect for the quick restoration caused by World War 3, earthquakes, tsunamis, pestilences and others.
    3 days later, Satan cast down to earth will go into his dead body, and reincarnate as the Antichrist and receiving all his glories. This then will be the real Endtime Antichrist, the Devil himself.

The 4th Beast's Little Horn (BD23)

Dan 7:7 "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.
    After the end of World War 3, no Empire will be formed (different) but the 'One World Order' to replaced the ineffective United Nation. This 'One World Order' will be controlled by 10 kings, who will be nominated by the victorious allies of Iran.

Dan 7:8 I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.
    Coming out of the 'One World Order' will be the little horn, who will:-
1. Become a human being (having human eyes)
2. Become the Antichrist (speaking pompous words against the Almighty God)
3. Set up the 'One World Religion' so that our Lord Jesus Christ will be denied His Divinity.
4. Deceive the Muslims to remove the Al Aqsa mosque
5. Deceive the Jews to rebuild the temple of God on the temple Mount.
Daniel 7:24-25 The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; he shall be different from the first ones, and shall subdue three kings. He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time.

2Thess 2:3-5, 7 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God... And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
    The Antichrist, who will be the incarnate of Satan (working of Satan with all power, signs and lying wonders), will come only in the last days and before Rapture, for he will sit as God in the temple of God. So before Rapture the Antichrist will gave to deceive the Jewish priesthood to build the temple of God for him to proclaim himself God. At Rapture he will be killed by the brightness of our Lord's coming and the breath of His mouth.
2Thess 2:8-9 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
  
Brethren, all those who do not love truth or reject truth will easily be deceived by the Antichrist and his cohorts, false prophets, false teachers, covetous pastors and depraved christian leaders . If you love truth you will keep His words.

1 Pet 1:22-23 Since you have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit in sincere love of the brethren, love one another fervently with a pure heart, having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever.

The One World Order (BD22)

Dan 7:23-24 "Thus he said: 'The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces. The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom..."
   The Northern Alliance of Iran (4th Beast) is also the little horn that is part of the former Grecian Empire. He will conquer Israel and many other lands. 
Dan 8:8-9 Therefore the male goat grew very great; but when he became strong, the large horn was broken, and in place of it four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven. And out of one of them came a little horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land.

Mat 24:7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.
    As Iran and its allies were annihilating the might of the West in World War 3, God causes great earthquakes and tsunamis, pestilences, etc. to hit all nations.
These great earthquakes with huge tsunamis killing hundreds of millions of people worldwide will temporary stop all wars. Rescue of the affected will be top priority. With such extensive destructions by the greatest earthquakes and largest tsunamis ever, the rescue will be insurmountable in every nation. Everyone will be trying to reach and rescue their loved ones, friends, etc., and no one will want to fight anymore thus ending WW3.
   These great devastations will wipe out factories, food-storages, farmlands, hospitals, power, etc. causing extensive starvation. The wounded, sick and starving along with plagues, diseases, etc. will bring all mankind onto their knees.
    During this period God will cleanse His church by killing the depraved, covetous and heretic pastors and Christian leaders to prepare the bride of the Lamb
    This will also be the period that godly Christians armed with the vision of the greatest harvest of souls, and the mission to feed, care, comfort and heal all the affected with God's gifts and empowering.

Rev 17:10-12 "The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast."
    After World War 3, the victorious but decimated (by the natural calamities) Northern Alliance (legs of iron) will form the One World Order to replace the ineffective and abominable UN.
Dan 2:32-33 "This image's head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay."

Dan 2:41-42 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter's clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile.
    All the first four beasts are of metal (gold, silver, bronze and iron) representing political and military powers, but the new government  that comes out of this 4th Beast (iron) will be different. This new government (One World Order) being the feet and toes of the image were made of iron and clay. Since iron (metal) represents  military or political power, then clay will likely represent the religious powers.
The new 'One World Order' will have 10 representatives (kings) to rule the whole world.

The Vengeance of God (BD21)

Dan 7:7 "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns"
    During World War 3, the 4th Beast (Iran and allies) will trampled the residue (of their enemies) with its feet. What is this residue and where does this residue come from?

God will use World War 3 to destroy the high and mighty West and Israel for their unbelief and abominations. At the same time, it will cleanse His church from the abominable practices, lies, covetousness and heresies, so that He can prepare the bride for the Lamb of God. Indirectly, God is fighting Israel and the West

1. Judgment of Jerusalem
Luke 21:20, 22, 24 "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near... For these are the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled... And they will fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Jerusalem will be trampled by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled."
    As vengeance, God will use World War 3 to annihilate Jerusalem for unbelief (PLO-Peace Treaty and gay parades). Israel will be trampled underfoot by Gentiles until Rapture (fulfillment of the times of the Gentiles).

2. Judgment of the West
Since President Clinton pressured Israel to sign the abominable PLO-Israel Peace Treaty in 1993, the US (including the West) was slowly transformed from a godly Christian nation to a demonic nation. The bible, prayers, preaching and evangelism were thrown out of schools, administration and public places. In place of godliness, are demonic practices such as homosexualities, gay marriages and abominable human rights. US also force these abominations upon all the other nations. Similarly, as vengeance, God will annihilate the depraved West.

3. Judgment of His church
2Peter 2:1-3 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.
    These two decades we have witnessed the numerous false prophets and false teachers with their lies, covetousness and destructive heresies, which unfortunately have attracted many etching ears. Unless they repent, they will all be judged and killed in World War 3.

Great Confusion during WW3
Judge 7:22 When the three hundred blew the trumpets, the LORD set every man's sword against his companion throughout the whole camp; and the army fled to Beth Acacia, toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel Meholah, by Tabbath.
    Though the West is invincible, yet God will cause confusion within the military, navy and police by revolt, sabotage and rebellion that the West will become self-destruct just like in the days of Saul, Gideons, Isaiah, etc.
    So when the armies of West attack Iran and its allies, they will all be in disarray by revolts and sabotages within themselves (residue of self-destruction), leaving Iran and allies to enter and easily kill and destroy them.

The Unique 4th Beast (BD20)

Dan 7:7 "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns"
    This 4th Beast (possibly an Alliance of nations) is different from all the other Beasts (Empires). It is dreadful and terrible. It is also very destructive and destroyed everything in its path. What then can this dreadful, destructive and powerful beast be?

Dan 7:8, 11, 13 "I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words... I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame. I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him."
    This looks like an end time event where the Antichrist seated in the temple of God will be killed by the glorious coming of our Lord Jesus at Rapture.
2Thess 2:8-9 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming. The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders,

Dan 2:40 And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others.
    Since this is an end time prophecy leading to Rapture, this dreadful, terrible and devastating event can only be World War 3, where the Antichrist hybridwill annihilate Israel and all its enemies.

Dan 11:40-41a "At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North (Antichrist) shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown...
    As soon as the Southern Alliance (Israel and Egypt supported by Saudi Arabia and other Sunni Arab nations) attack Iran, the head of the Northern Alliance (king of the North) this will start World War 3 (likely in 2018)
    The Northern Alliance will retaliate and attack the neighbouring Arab nations and the military bases of the West. This will prompt the US 5th Fleet based in the Arabian Sea to attack Iran with missiles, fighter jets and bombers. The Antichrist using his demonic power will then diverted all these arsenals to populated cities. The whole world will blame the death of hundreds of thousands of innocent Iranian civilians on the US and the West. The rest of the world will support Iran to fight the West.

Dan 11:44 "But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many"
    Australia, which is East of Iran will send military to support the West. Australia will be annihilated.
    EU (Northwest of Iran) will attack Iran but they too will be annihilated.
Note - Russia, an ally of Iran is North East of Iran.

The 4th Beast will likely be the victorious Northern Alliance (Iran, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon).

Visions of 2nd and 3rd Beasts (BD19)

          The Second Beast
Daniel 7:5 "And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: 'Arise, devour much flesh!'"
    The 1st. Beast was the Babylonian Empire, which was conquered by the 2nd Beast (the Mede-Persian Empire) The 4th Persian king was the most powerful and he sent his whole military to attack Greece.
Dan 11:2 And now I will tell you the truth: Behold, three more kings will arise in Persia, and the fourth shall be far richer than them all; by his strength, through his riches, he shall stir up all against the realm of Greece.

Dan 8:3-4, 20 Then I lifted my eyes and saw, and there, standing beside the river, was a ram which had two horns, and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. I saw the ram pushing westward, northward, and southward, so that no animal could withstand him; nor was there any that could deliver from his hand, but he did according to his will and became great... The ram which you saw, having the two horns—they are the kings of Media and Persia.
    This 2nd Beast (chest and arms of silver, an inferior kingdom) was the Mede-Persian Empire with King Darius as it's first king. It was during this period that King Cyrus sent the Jews back to rebuild the temple of God.

          The Third Beast
Dan 7:6 "After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it."
    The Mede-Persian Empire (ram) was destroyed by the Grecian Empire (male goat). Alexander the great, swiftly (leopard) conquered the whole middle East and reached India in a very short period.  
Dan 8:5-7 "And as I was considering, suddenly a male goat came from the west, across the surface of the whole earth, without touching the ground; and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. Then he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing beside the river, and ran at him with furious power. And I saw him confronting the ram; he was moved with rage against him, attacked the ram, and broke his two horns. There was no power in the ram to withstand him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled him; and there was no one that could deliver the ram from his hand."

Dan 8:8 "Therefore the male goat grew very great; but when he became strong, the large horn was broken, and in place of it four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven."
    After the death of Alexander the Great, the Grecian Empire was broken up into 4 kingdoms under the control of each General.
1. Greece and Macedonia
Gen. Cassander took control of Greece and Macedonia;
2. Turkey
Gen. Lysimachus took control of Thrace and most of Asia Minor;
3. Southern kingdom
Gen. Ptolemy took control of Egypt, Israel and Petra.
4. Northern kingdom
Gen. Seleucus took control of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon (former Persian Empire).
Dan 11:3-4 Then a mighty king shall arise, who shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. And when he has arisen, his kingdom shall be broken up and divided toward the four winds of heaven, but not among his posterity nor according to his dominion with which he ruled; for his kingdom shall be uprooted, even for others besides these.
