TEACHING ON DANIEL

Greetings Watchers!

Well, the Mideast is doing exactly what it should be doing to be fulfilling the end time prophecy of Daniel.

If you read this description from Daniel of the Landscape, and follow it through time, you can’t help but end up on the present day stage of history.

I hope you all see it, and realize just how close we are to reaching the day Daniel foretold. Just read the daily news from the Mideast, and be witness to this prophecy’s final fulfillment.

When you do, you will be watching, just as God commanded, and thus you will see the day of your redemption come to pass, as this landscape cannot be completed until we have been Raptured!

Follow this teaching along in your Bible. I used the King James Version for this study.

Now, open your Bibles to Daniel, Chapter 2. We begin this study at verse 31.

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon had a very disturbing dream, and ordered his magicians to tell him the dream and then interpret it. They could not, and were under sentence of death because of that, when Daniel sent word that he would do it.

The kings dream interpretation is the first of Daniels prophecy, and in it, the entire end time story is told, from beginning to end without regard for time.

Daniel tells the king what his dream was.

Vs. 31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.

The images head was of fine gold, his shoulder and arms, of silver. Belly and thighs of brass, sides is the literal. Legs of iron, feet part iron part clay. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut without hands, that smote the image upon his feet of iron and clay, and brake them in pieces.

Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and gold, broke into pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floor; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: And the Stone that smote the image became a great mountain and filled the whole Earth. This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. (This tells us that when the stone falls on that land, represented by the feet, it crushes all the kingdoms that come out of it, all the way to the end time kingdom made up of the ten toes of Iron and Clay.)

It's these prophecies that critics of scripture use to try to say that Daniel didn't write it, it was a pseudo gram, written by someone who took his name, and written after the fact. Because the prophecies that unfold in Daniel become one of the greatest convincers of the reality of God and his word found anywhere. Not too many can still stand the test of facts in regard to whether this is history or prophecy. Modern scholarship and archeology has settled that question to those who take the trouble to look. God is going to write the future here, so pay attention.

Daniels interpretation: (follow along on the picture and the maps)

V37 Thou, O King, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. Thou art this head of gold. Babylon!(The symbol is of a kingdom, on earth, Babylon). After thee shall arise another kingdom, inferior to thee _ (Medo_Persia. Perfectly symbolized, two shoulders, two arms, because it was a union of two kingdoms, the Medes and the Persians, united together by Cyrus the Great, and welded into a combined kingdom, conquering the Babylonian kingdom.)

And another kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. (Grecia, under Alexander the Great)

And a fourth kingdom, shall be strong as iron; forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things; and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. (The Roman Empire, noted for it's iron will and rule of law.)

And whereas thou sawest the feet & toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided, but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. Whereas thou sawest iron mixed with clay, they shall mingle, and in the days of these kings, (a mixture of kingdoms, some strong as iron, like the Romans, others weakly united, shall be formed is an out growth of the Roman portion of the Moslem Empire, Revelation 17's seventh Empire. Wherever this iron kingdom spreads it's influence, take a map of ancient geography, and whatever part of the Moslem Empire that the Roman kingdom had spreads to, out of that territory, will come a ten toed kingdom, a confederacy of kings, and here's the important line,) IN THE DAYS OF THESE KINGS, the confederacy of ten, shall the God of heaven, set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed.

The confederacy of ten kings, from the Roman portion of the Moslem Empire, has occurred on the present day stage of history!

Therefore, where are we in the prophecy? Let's begin the study and find out.

The key text _ in the time of these ten toed kings, the confederacy of ten, God will set up his eternal kingdom. God has not done that yet. Therefore there has to be a GAP OF TIME, between this iron kingdom, Rome, and the confederacy of ten kings that will put itself together at the time of the end.

The authority for such a gap, is given by Jesus himself, when he reads in the temple, during the feast of tabernacles, he reads from Isaiah the prophecy concerning Messiah, that he comes to set captives free, he comes to bring deliverance, he comes to bring healing, and then he stops in mid sentence. He is quoting from Isaiah 61, because he opened the scripture and is reading, in fact, he is reading the Septuagint translation, and he stops right in the middle of the sentence, because the next half of the sentence, says the day of vengeance is come. He stops in mid sentence with the passages of healing, and setting captives free, looks at his congregation and says, this day, this scripture is fulfilled in your eyes. Had he kept reading, he couldn't say that.

We now know a gap of over 1900 years passes, and the second half of the sentence is not yet fulfilled. The first coming of Christ fulfilled the first half of the sentence, the second coming of Christ will fulfill the second half of the sentence. But the prophet saw it from a distance, the way we look at a mountain range. At a distance, the front hills melt into the back hills, and we see them as one skyline, one silhouette. But, as you get close, you see the valleys between the first row of hills, and the ones behind.

Isaiah saw the mountain range, of the work of Christ. He would come to set captives free, to bring joy, to bring healing, he will also come on a day of vengeance which we read about in Revelations 19. But between those two events, both in one sentence, was a gap, which the word of God, in Christ, separated for us.

We now know Daniel is like that, and other verses of scripture will fill in the space between the gap, but in Daniels first utterance to Nebuchadnezzar, he simply sees the head, the breast, the belly, the thighs and legs that flow from this kingdom of evil, and he skips over the gap, and makes one large leap, that in the last days, before God sets up his kingdom, which is the stone kingdom, which lasts forever, there will be formed a confederacy of ten nations out of the Moslem Empire that was once occupied by the Old Roman Empire.

Now, that makes prophecy preachers look at the current scene, and forever speculate on when this restored Roman empire, as it is called, will emerge on the stage of history. When the European common market was born, they quickly began to speculate, is this the confederacy of 10, that will signal that the end of the age is arriving, because Daniels prophecy makes it clear that in the time of these ten kings, that the end comes, that the eternal kingdom is established.

And, when Greece became the tenth member, of the European common market back in the ‘80's, prophecy preachers went bananas. They were sure they had found it! My experience with God's word shows me that Satan always forms a counterfeit of that which God has prophesied, in order that he might suppress and interfere with the fulfillment of God's word.

If you only look at Daniel 2, all you have to look for, to know when we are standing at the edge of the last days, is a 10 unit confederacy that grows out of the Roman portion of the Moslem Empire. I don't believe it is the European community. The reason being, this isn't the only prophecy.

Go to Daniel 7. You will never understand prophecy unless you catch this concept of a gestalt picture given first, and then more prophecy given to fill in details. The entire prophetic picture of the world was given in Genesis 3, when God said: "the seed of the woman would bruise the head of the serpent, and in turn the heel of the seed of the woman would be bruised by the serpent". That one scripture portrays everything in the conflict between God and Satan in the redemption of man. The whole book, from Genesis on (which means beginnings), fills in the detail.

Daniels first prophecy lays out the kingdoms that flow from Babylon. It is not a picture of world history. It only pictures the kingdoms that are the outgrowth of that stream that flows from Babylon to Medo_Persia, to Greece, to Rome, to Moslem, and a final kingdom, whose fundamental aim is the destruction of God's chosen people, the Jews!

There is nothing in this image about the great kingdoms of China, no reference to the Zulu kingdom of Africa, nothing confirming the great kingdoms that have left their mark in South and Central America.

This is a prophecy flowing simply from one thing that God did, giving to Nebuchadnezzar, a reign of insanity, and evil, for one twenty five hundred and twenty years, but that's another subject. Remember only this, the only kingdoms referenced are those who grow out of, and replace their predecessor, from Babylon on.

Seventh chapter, vs.4 Daniel has a dream. Four great beasts came up from the sea (people of the earth). The first was like a lion. Now instead of a head of gold, we have a beast. Instead of an image like a man, we have a succession of beasts. This prophecy comes after prophecies that define the kingdoms as beastly, so beasts are very fitting. First is the lion, Babylon. (Head of gold)

Behind him another beast, like to a bear (shoulders, and arms of silver) and it raised up itself on one side and it had three ribs in the mouth of it, between the teeth of it. And they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. From a lion to a bear, The Medo_Persian Empire, interestingly symbolized as it happened, raising up higher on one side than the other, because Cyrus first united the Persians, and the Persians stronger, conquered the Medes, with three ribs in it's mouth, and you can trace in history, the three great victories that brought the Medo_Persian Empire to fulfillment, symbolized in this bear.

After this I beheld, and lo another like a leopard (sides and belly of brass), which had upon the back of it four wings of a foul. The beast had also four heads, and dominion was given to it. A strange leopard beast, with dominion, Grecia.

After this, I saw in the night vision, and behold a fourth beast (Legs of iron _ this has come to be known in history as the nondescript beast), dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly, and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was DIVERSE from all the beasts that were before it; and it had TEN HORNS! Rome!

As the legs of the image move to the feet that have ten toes, this beast had ten horns. Now, instead of having ten toes on the image, we have ten horns on the beast. But it's like moving toward a mountain range in prophecy, now we see some greater detail.

Vs.8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn (among the ten, there was another, eleventh horn, a little one, and _ it grows up, wherever the ten horned or ten toed confederacy spreads itself in that territory, a little horn, symbol of an emerging kingdom.) Little horn will rise up, before whom there were three of the first horns, plucked up by the roots (not just loped off, plucked up by the roots!): and , behold, in this horn (the little one) were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.

I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool; his throne was like the fiery flame, and a fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened, and he talks of the eternal kingdom that follows.

Then Daniel says after that dream, vs.15, I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the vision of my head troubled me. I came near one that stood by and asked the truth of this. So, an Angel interprets the dream.

Prophecy again: Vs.17 These great beasts which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.

(Now, there is one school of prophecy that says these beasts cannot be identical to the image of the head, shoulders, belly and legs, because Nebuchadnezzar is already dead! His kingdom is already fallen and his successor is there. It's the first year of Belshazzar. And, if Nebuchadnezzar's kingdom is already fulfilled, and came into existence, and a successor sits on the throne, how can the lion refer to Babylon?, because it says, "these kingdoms shall arise". Future _ that makes sense, doesn't it?

You don't say these four kingdoms "shall arise", when one is already established. That's why the King James needs some corrections. Every instance of the verb being translated, exclusively means: to get up to leave. "Shall arise" does not mean, to come into existence. "Shall arise" in the original verb is exclusively used to translate someone who gets up in order that they might leave.

This could be translated to say that these 4 kingdoms come into existence so they can pass form the scene. They are not permanent _ they come, so they can go! It's important, because that school of prophecy is having a lot of influence, and it is based upon a simple erroneous translation.

Babylon was there, but it hadn't yet gotten up to go! It thought it was around forever, but the beasts in the vision announces there are four kingdoms including the one of Belshazzar, that is the existing successor to Nebuchadnezzar, and they are going to get up on the stage of history and leave. But there is coming a kingdom that shall never get up to leave. I mention this in case you run into the writings of that school.

These great beasts which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. They will get up on the earth in order that they might leave. But the saints of the most high shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. They aren't going to leave!

Vs.19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron (analogy of the Roman Empire) and I would know the truth of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up and before whom three fell _ he gets the answer _ Verse 23: The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise; and another shall rise after them; and HE shall be diverse from the first, and He shall subdue three kings.

Vs.25 And He shall speak great words, against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws; and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. The saints here are Jews _ not Christians _ this is being written to the Jews.

(Now, what's time? 360 days, one Jewish year, times = 2 Jewish years, and the dividing of time = one half a Jewish year _ that is three and one half Jewish years _ He is going to be given power for three and a half years _ that brings us to tribulation time.)

Vs. 26 But the judgment shall sit and they shall take away His dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. Vs.27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Ok, I'm going to talk to you now: This little horn who comes up and uproots three of the ten horns that grow out of the nondescript beast, as the feet and toes are attached to the iron legs, the horns grow out of the nondescript beast, the iron legs being Rome, the nondescript beast being Rome, and feet being the Moslem Empire, the ten toes and the ten horns being a confederacy of ten out of the Roman portions of the Moslem Empire. The Little Horn is added in this vision. From within the territory of the ten, he will rise up, uproot three of the ten, and establish a kingdom, that now we are told, will last, given absolute power, for a period of three and a half years, after which his kingdom will be destroyed, and the kingdom of the saints eternal will be established.

So, once again we have our clue. This ten toed kingdom, in the days of those kings, the stone kingdom will be established. In the beastly vision, in the area of the ten member confederacy, an 11th one, not very big, a nondescript little horn will rise up, uproot three of the ten, have absolute power for three and a half years and then he will be put down as the kingdom of the saints, which is the equivalent of the stone kingdom is established to last forever.

Now, we know, from Babylon will flow successive kingdoms, Medo_Persia, Grecia, Rome. A gap

of time will occur, some of you might know, and I will teach on it later, 2nd Ezra _ which used to be in the Bible, until it was removed by the Puritans, has the prophecy of the three headed eagle. Which in the prophecy, it is stated that God did not explain the nondescript beast, the Roman Empire, and it's successors, in detail to Daniel, but in 2nd Ezra, the three headed eagle traces the history from the Roman Empire to these last days. This is an amazingly accurate prophecy _ very worth while to learn.

But the passage before us only tells us this: from Babylon to Medo_Persia to Greece to Rome, then a gap of time, then another kingdom (the feet _ The Moslem Empire), and growing out of it (the toes), a confederacy of ten, from out of the Roman portion. And in the 2nd prophecy, out of the confederacy of ten, a little kingdom will uproot three, be given absolute power for three and a half years and then in both cases, during the period of the ten member confederacy, in the first prophecy, during the time and after the three and a half years reign of the little horn, who uprooted, comes the eternal kingdom. These ten member confederacy nations bring us to the last days and the little horn, who is none other than Antichrist.

Now just one more thing, as I make the gestalt point in preparation for the next class.

Chapter 8. Now imagine if prophecy is like a set of telescopes that move down to binoculars, that move down to microscopes as you get closer, and each successive movement forward gives more detail, but it's the same prophetic landscape.

Daniels image didn't show a gap, Daniels image didn't show the little horn, and the specifics of his power after uprooting three. Daniels image and the beastly prophecy didn't show the gap, but the beastly prophecy added the detail of the little horn, and the uprooting of three.

Now, move the telescope closer. Daniel 8, vs.2 (refer to the picture & maps) I saw in a vision , Daniel speaking, I lifted up mine eyes and there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher horn came up last.

Let me skip the details of reading, and just tell you the prophecy. (You can read it later) This ram, now instead of seeing all four beasts, he concentrates on just two, the Medo_Persian and the Grecian Empire. The importance of this prophecy is that it lets us locate where the little horn comes from. Where Antichrist will come from when he appears. Focusing on just two kingdoms, what had been called the breast and sides, the bear and leopard, now becomes a ram and goat. Medo_Persia being the ram.

It's perfectly described, it has two horns, because it was a combined kingdom. The last one, younger horn, rises up higher than the older one. The Medes, were breaking the back of Assyria, and creating a vacuum into which Nebuchadnezzar's kingdom could move before the warring tribes around the Persian Gulf were even united. The Medes were the older part of the kingdom. The younger part, united under Cyrus around the Persian Gulf, once united, overpowered the Medes, so the younger horn grew higher than the other, but it's a two horned kingdom.

And I saw a ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will and became great.

Powerful! The Medo_Persian Empire under Cyrus conquers Babylon and seems to know no resistance, then suddenly, vs.5 as I was considering, behold, a he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, moving so fast that it's characterized as not touching the ground. And the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. He came to the ram with 2 horns and this one horned goat ran into him in the fury of his power. Smote the ram and break his 2 horns, and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but the goat cast him down to the ground and stamped upon him and there was none that could deliver him. Medo_Persia falls to Grecia.

Then the he goat waxed very great. And when this goat was strong, and in his prime, the great horn was broken, and in the place of the great horn on the goat, up came 4 new horns toward the four winds of heaven.

Vs.9 And out of one of them (one of the 4 new horns on the goat, that replaced the notable horn that was broken), came a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south and toward the east and toward the pleasant land.(Israel)

Now I can tell you, you can read it later, that a little horn is identified. Only this time it is a horn that grows out of one of the 4 replacement horns of the goat. And as you read the rest of the chapter, as the stone kingdom comes during the time of the ten member confederacy, as the kingdom of the saints forever comes after the rule of the three and a half year reign, once again the little horn that grows out of the horn on the head of the goat, which is none other, except in different symbol, than the same horn, that little horn which rules until Christ sets up his final kingdom.

In the little horn in the beast imagery of Daniel, that comes up out of the ten member confederacy, and rules three and a half years, you have Antichrist. In the next prophecy, the little horn, that comes up in the midst of the 4 horns on the head of the goat is the same person _ Antichrist.

This prophecy again is interpreted by an Angel, and the Bible clearly says that the rough goat is the king of Grecia, and the great horn, vs. 21, that is between his eyes, is the first king, now that being broken, four kingdoms stood up for him.

You that know your history, know that Alexander the Great, the first king, conquered Medo_Persia, was cut off in his prime, and in his place, (this is why people try to say this is history rather than prophecy) four generals divided the kingdom (Seleucus, Ptolemy, Cassandra and Lysimachus), of which two of them play a prominent role in the history of Israel.

The two most prominent being the Seleucid King, that ruled the area of the Middle east (see the map), from Babylon, to Turkey, to Lebanon to Palestine, and the Ptolemy's, of Egypt. They enter into modern history when the Seleucid king gave his daughter in marriage to the Ptolemy's in Egypt.

Now, a chapter or so later, the prophecy will speak in historic detail without parable, but to this point, God's word has said this: There will come, after Babylon, the kingdom of silver, which is Medo_Persia, two shoulders and arms, after that, the brass, which is Greece, and after Greece, iron legs, again, two parts, as the Roman empire broke into 2 parts, then there is a gap, necessitated, by the conclusions of the time up to the confederacy. A great gap that lasts until you see ten kingdoms born in a confederacy in an ancient Roman Empire area of the Moslem Empire. When that happens, get ready for the end. Get more ready for the end, when you can identify the little horn's kingdom, and it is the outgrowth of one of the four kingdoms into which Greece split. Get really concerned when the little horn, from that territory of the ten, uproots three.

Now, next class, I will show you this four horned kingdom of the goat, as two of them seem to push off the edge of Biblical history, while the other two have a whole chapter following them in prophecy, given by an Angel himself, concentrating on the struggle between the Seleucid king who wins the area of the Middle East, one of the four, that takes the place of the notable horn on the goat, and the Ptolemy's of Egypt. Of the four kingdoms, two of them are constantly warring _ the Seleucid's and the Ptolemy's of Egypt. And in the prophecy given by the Angel, the Seleucid king, the one in the Middle East, grows to power, and out of the Seleucid kingdom comes a ruler, that is identified in a subsequent chapter as Antichrist.

Therefore, when is Antichrist going to come on the scene? He will appear on the scene, when there is a ten member confederacy formed, that is preparation for the stone kingdoms ascendancy in the end of time in the last days.

Where will Antichrist come from? He will come from the territory of this ten member confederacy, and he will not come through world war. Now there seems to be a great fear that a nuclear holocaust will wipe us off the face of the earth, or that some world war will come, or that the time of the end will come when Russia comes down on the Middle east.

There won't be any world war, there won't be any nuclear holocaust. The end of time is not going to approach until, in the area of the confederacy, a little horn, in a local war, uproots three. That local war, where the little horn uproots three, is placed by the ram and the goat prophecy, in the territory of the Seleucid portion of Alexander's kingdom.

Don't look for it in the split up of the European common market, the center of the conflict that causes Antichrist to come to power is in the territory of that one horn of the four horns that replaced Alexander the Great, the Seleucid territory _ Western Iran, Iraq, Southern Turkey, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan _ out of that territory, that's the Seleucid kingdom. That's the horn, that later, in Daniel 11, will conquer and prevail over the Ptolemy's. The little horn must come out of the territory of the Seleucid King.

Therefore, since the little horn grows up, uprooting three of the ten, the confederacy of the ten, must at least extend to, if not be centered in the area of the Middle east. When one rises up in that area, being the territory of the Seleucid horn of the Grecian Kingdom, when one rises up in that area, in a local war, not a world war, and uproots three of these horns that comprise the confederacy, that must be enveloped by at least the Seleucid kingdom, then, we are at the door of the end.

The Bible says to keep your eyes on the conflicts of Middle East, especially the Seleucid portion, of that horn on the head of the Goat which identifies the locale and geography that is historical of where the little horn who will be Antichrist, must come up. He will uproot three of a confederacy of ten.

Know this, Antichrist will not be revealed (to the Jews) until the Church that restrains him is taken out of the way, and as we will see, he is close enough to be able to identify the kingdom into which he will move, and uproot three, and assert his power in that kingdom, and they will give it to him. And then a Beast from the pit itself, which is the demon that empowered Alexander the Great, will rise up and possess him, and lead him to perdition.
