The Prophecy of Daniel part 2

Greetings Watchers!

It’s important that we have an understanding of the way the stage of history got to the point where we are today. The only way to see it is to study Daniel’s prophecy, because that is where God painted the landscape, and left the trail in time for us to follow.

The Prophecy of Daniel continued.

Tonight, we return to the teaching of Daniel, so open your bibles to Revelations, Chapter 6.

And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, (now you read in the previous chapter, the Lamb, is Christ, that ought to settle something, right off), and heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts (zoa, living ones, is a better translation), saying, come and see.

And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow, and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

I heard a preacher on Television say, that after much scholarship, he has concluded that the man on that white horse, is Christ, in His second coming. Christ therefore opened the seal and let Himself out. Satan has always been the great imitator.

Just because in Revelation 19, John said, I saw heaven opened and behold a white horse, and he that sat on him, was called faithful and true, don't think that they are the same. The very reason for that phrase is to distinguish this man on the white horse of Rev. 19, which had on his vesture, and on his thigh, written the name King of Kings and Lord of Lords, from the other. It's to contrast that man on that white horse with this one, that comes out when the first seal is opened.

Now the book of revelations proceeds through seven seals, seven trumpets and seven vials. And those seven seals unleash, and the seven trumpets announce, and the seven vials pour out, the wrath of God.

There are lots of Christians that stay confused over the act of tribulation, because Jesus says that in the world you shall have tribulation, and there are Christians that have suffered great tribulation, and nobody wants to tell the Church in China, or the church on main street, that they won't go through tribulations.

Jesus said, in the world ye shall have tribulation. But the book of Revelations adds a word in the Greek. It talks of the Tribulation, the Great Tribulation, to distinguish it for all other tribulation. This tribulation, The Great Tribulation, is a tribulation that unleashes, as the seals are opened, it announces, as the trumpets are blown, and it pours out as the vials are emptied, this is God's Wrath! It is a tribulation unlike any ever seen by this world, because it is God pouring out His Wrath!

But, the saints in Christ are not appointed unto Wrath, because the body of Christ suffered wrath once, finished it for our sins, so, we'll be lifted out of the way at the Rapture.

The Church, the body of Christ, is not appointed unto Wrath from God. Tribulation from the world, form the Devil, that's ok, that's our lot. We're no better than the Master who called us in that sense, but there is one wrath He bore, where he put himself as a covering between us and that wrath, namely, the Wrath of God! Having borne that wrath once, we that are in Christ, must be lifted out of the way before the wrath of God hits this earth, otherwise Christ's body suffers wrath twice.

That's why, to the Thessalonians, Paul takes account of the fact that they are suffering tribulation, but he says that even if somebody else writes you in my name, don't believe it's that great tribulation, because there is a prior happening that must occur. The spirit of Antichrist is at work in the land, and he cannot come to power, until that restraining force, that restrains him from full revelation, is taken out of the way. That's the act called Rapture. It also shows us that we will never see the Antichrist! We are holding him back. So, he won't be here until after we are gone!

Rapture simply means: catching away. You only find the word once in the New Testament, that's were it says in the book of Acts, that Philip was caught away from the Gaza strip, and appeared in Azotus. That swift movement, and placement in another area, has come to be used as the word for the catching away of the saints.

When that restraining force is gone, then Paul says to the Thessalonians, that man of sin shall be revealed. And that man has become to be called Antichrist. Antichrist simply means, substitute deliverer. Christ being deliverer. Satan always has his substitute. Antichrist is a substitute deliverer for the Christ who will come. But when Christ comes this next time, He's coming to save the Jews from total destruction, so the Antichrist is a substitute deliverer for the Jews _ the false deliverer that blinds them, who would have them completely destroyed but for the arrival of Christ, who shortens the day so that some of them might live.

The man on the white horse in Revelation 6, is but the substitute for the man on the white horse that will come, called faithful and true. This man on the white horse in Revelations 6 starts the wrath of God. The seal is opened, first of seven, and the man on the white horse comes out and he has a bow and no arrow.

He doesn't come to conquer the world. His initial revelation is not as Antichrist, but as a man of peace. He comes with an answer to the need for peace. Antichrist will not come, riding a tank, blowing everybody out of the way. He will come with a solution to the need for peace. A bow and no arrow!

Once on the scene, he (Antichrist) will be followed by the second horse, which is red. So, peacetime will quickly evaporate, and war will follow. Third seal, a black horse, of famine, then comes the pale horse of death, and the tribulation begins to flow in it's terrible tragedy, and thank God we'll be gone!

All I want to make as a point today, is that the first event of that great outpouring of God's wrath will be the appearance of this man of peace, on a white horse, bow and no arrow!

Now, let me give you another glimpse of him. The Antichrist is pretty much the subject today.

Revelations 13.

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having SEVEN HEADS and TEN HORNS, upon his heads TEN CROWNS, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

Now I intend to go through Revelations verse by verse, if we are here long enough, but I need to give you the gestalt frame behind the book. Today it's my intention to return to Daniel, but first we need to learn of the nature of the beast, called Antichrist, as a backdrop to Daniel.

I stood upon the sand of the sea, (symbolic of the peoples of this earth, saw a beast, that's not Antichrist, yet), rise up, out of the sea, having SEVEN HEADS AND TEN HORNS, and upon his HORNS ten crowns and upon his HEADS the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a LEOPARD, and his feet were as the feet of a BEAR, and his mouth as the mouth of a LION, and the DRAGON gave him his power. Recognize this guy from Daniel?

Last class we looked at the image in Daniel 2. (just hang your mind there in Revelations for a moment.) We saw the head of gold, the shoulders and arms of silver, the belly and sides of brass, legs of iron, feet and ten toes, representing the kingdom of the last days, which was a confederacy of 10, and I proceeded to show you why a great gap in history occurred, like a person looking at a distant mountain range, when you are far away, you don't see the distinction between the first row of hills and the second, but as you get closer, and you see the valley between the first and second row of hills, the gap theory of prophecy, there was a gap between this Roman Empire, which was the Legs of Iron, The Grecian Empire, brass, the Medo_Persian Empire, the silver, The Babylonian Empire of gold and the kingdom of the ten toes. We then went to another prophecy where Daniel saw a beast. A Lion, a Bear, a Leopard and a nondescript beast, the nondescript beast having TEN HORNS, and another "Feet" kingdom with ten toes growing out of it, and a gap between.

Then we saw, that whereas the end of time would come during the time of these ten kings, when God would set up His kingdom, that would crash it down, and the whole kingdom would crumble, and a kingdom would be set up which would have no end. We learned that at the time of the confederacy of the ten kingdoms we were at the time of the end.

The second prophecy filled in details, namely, that during the time of the 10 horns, a little horn will comes up, and uproot three others, and set up his kingdom, which would be destroyed by God who then sets up His eternal kingdom.

So, details at the time of the ten toes, the first vision say that the time of the end is when their confederacy forms. The second vision, let us know, that before the time of the end came, a little detail would occur, namely, one little kingdom would arise, uproot three, and that little horn was Antichrist, who would set himself up against God eternal, and be destroyed. Then we looked through a microscopic and narrowed the focus to just the Medo_Persian Empire, and the Grecian Empire, characterized by a Ram and a Goat.

We then found out that the gap occurs in the successive kingdoms of the goat, who had four horns, that came up in place of the great horn that was broken off, which were four kingdoms that arose out of the notable horn that was Alexander's Kingdom, and then at the time of the end, an outcropping of this four horned kingdom, which was the successor to Alexander the Great, pinpointed as the Seleucid Kingdom, would grow up as a little horn and become the powerful Antichrist.

In three separate passages, we are led to know that before the end occurs, a ten member confederacy would form, out of that confederacy, a little horn would rise and uproot three, and to him would be given power by the others, and out of the four horned break up of Alexander the Greats kingdom, would come Antichrist, as an outgrowth of one of these four.

Now, that's were we ended last class.

And the beast in Revelation 13, shows in symbol again, as was the case, with the Lion, the Bear, the Leopard, and the nondescript beast, and the Ram and the Goat, shows in symbol, earthly kingdoms. Now, we see a continuity in Revelation 13. Now, we have to set the beast of Revelation 13 in the context of these beasts in Daniel.

I saw upon the sand of the sea, which is symbolic of all peoples, a beast, one giant beast now, rise up out of the sea, having SEVEN HEARD and TEN HORNS. Upon his HORNS, Ten Crowns, and upon his HEADS the name of blasphemy.

And the Beast which I saw was like unto a LEOPARD (in his power of movement), which brings us back to the symbol of Alexander the Great's kingdom. His feet were as the feet of a BEAR, which brings us to where the feet sit on the ground, symbol of the geographic placement of this beast, the territory of the Medo_Persian Empire.

Now it's important to note, that this beastly kingdom, that will symbolize the growth of Antichrist's power at the time of the end, will have the power and nature of the Leopard beast, which is Grecia, but it's center of geographic territory will be the Medo_Persian Empire. The importance of this beast in Revelation 13, is that the center of power for Antichrist, though having the nature of the Leopard, his feet will be planted where the Bear was.

Now, I've seen so many books on Antichrist, from the Pope to Hitler and even Mussolini. There are all kinds of best sellers in waste baskets that identify Antichrist. He isn't here yet! Furthermore, I want you to understand that in spite of movies suggesting otherwise, Antichrist is not some kid with laser beams for eyes growing up in some village somewhere, dissolving his sister with a glare!

Antichrist will be a King, growing up in a territory, in a nation destined to play the little horn/peacemaker role. He will perform, no doubt, a very normal act of nationalistic expression as he uproots three kingdoms in a little area war, that he uses to establish his position, and may indeed come up with the needed ingredient for the peace plan, before a certain event happens that makes him go into perdition (evil deeds). And, that happening, is a happening of demon possession! (you know a lot of the church does not believe in demon possession, and will never be able to decipher prophecy because of that)

A beast, out of the bottomless pit, shall ascend, and at a time, when our man is already in a possession of earthly power, will enter into that man and possess him, and take him to perdition. Until that is seen, you can't understand certain prophecies about Antichrist.

Thus far we know that the beastly kingdom of evil, being like the Leopard, which speaks for the speed and power of movement, has his feet planted where the Bear is geographically, showing that the center will be from Iran on the Persian Gulf of the Middle East through Palestine. Don't expect the center of it to be in Geneva, in Berlin, or even Moscow!

The beast which I saw was like unto a Leopard, feet that places the geography, like a Bear, his mouth as the mouth of a Lion. Out of Babylon, and the substitute doctrine of Nimrod, and his evil wife Semiramis, whose doctrines fueled the mystery religions via Pergamus has dominated most of the religious world.

We just past Christmas, that's a heathen doctrine! We celebrated Christ Mass. Mass is from the word Massa, which were the little cake that the women of Egypt and Babylon baked for the queen of heaven, which Jeremiah condemned.

The doctrine which has divided the Church more than anything else, is, whether or not, when you take communion, you eat an emblem symbolizing a covenant act of Christ, or whether you partake of a trans_substantiated, miraculous substance, that has you literally eat the flesh and blood of Christ. That a Babylonian Doctrine!

Christ used the Passover as His take off point. When He offered the bread, his body was in tact, and when He offered the cup, His blood was in tact. And you take the blinders of mid_evil concessions to Babylonian religion off, and the symbol, rather than the substance, is obvious. But, the mystery religions of Babylon have conquered.

Christ was born in the Fall. You can prove that by deduction from the birth time of John which can be proven from scripture. John was born in the Spring, 6 months prior to Christ. We know He was born in the Fall, the Pope knows He was born in the Fall, but we celebrate December 25th, which is the birth of the Saturnalia. It's a mystery religion add on.

Do you know where the word cannibal comes from? Those who eat human flesh? It's a cognate of the old Chaldean two word phrase _ Priests of Bale _ Canna Baal. From this we get our word cannibal, and it's from that religion, that substitute religious system, that substitute belief in the incarnation, where Tammuz was conceived by a sun beam, that religion of ritual and work, comes from Babylon.

Satan's caricature substitute for Christianity's voice is out of the mouth of the beast whose head is Babylon, with a geographic territory, seated in the land of the Medo_Persians, with methods of conquering and movement and power of that of ancient Greece, and the Dragon, Satan, gave him his power, his seat and his great authority.

Vs. 3 And I saw one of his heads (how many heads? _ seven), as it were wounded to death, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world wondered after the beast.

Now, in this phrase, Antichrist, that was identified as the little horn, and the man on the white horse, is somehow related to this beast of Satan controlled kingdoms on this earth, which has his head wounded, unto death, and suddenly is restored. So, the wounded head is another analogy for the little horn, another analogy for the man on the white horse of Revelations 6, and this wounded head is restored.

Now again, I have to mix the pudding today, to get a gestalt. I only want one thing to settle in today, details not being that important. That this final opposition to Christ's reign on this earth, which we call Antichrist, can only be understood when you connect all the symbols that gives you that vision ability. He's symbolized as a man on a white horse, that comes with a peace plan, he is symbolized as a little horn, who in the last days, out of a confederacy of 10 will uproot 3, and then be given his kingdom by the other members of the confederacy. Now he is symbolized as a wounded head, that is restored.

Pulpits all over America, when JFK was shot, were already preaching that Sunday that John Kennedy may be the wounded head that will rise. Then, when Robert Kennedy was shot, sermons began to be preached again on the wounded head that will arise. Then when Kadahfi was shot, and was recovering, we had another wounded head. I mean there are more funny theories circulating on this prophetic "love boat" than you can shake a stick at. You can never understand these prophecies, until you link them all together.

Now, lets go to Revelation 17.

Same beastly kingdom being portrayed. And in all of this story I am telling, the gestalt I want today is one simple thing, an ability to recognize certain traits about the Antichrist. Now you may say, if we are going to be gone, who cares? I'm not convinced that all of you are going to be gone! Laughing out loud!! I want to leave this message for you to read!, he said jokingly.

Rev.17. There came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials,(now we are past the seven seals, the first of which released this white horse, were past the seven trumpets, we're into the period of the seven vials, where it really gets bad), and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto you the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters.

He comments about the kings of the earth and then he begins to interpret this beast, which is the same beast which he has described earlier in the 13th chapter. Vs. 3 describes _ the beast full of names of blasphemy, having SEVEN HEADS & TEN HORNS. Now we have the seven heads and ten horns again. That beast of revelations, symbolizes in one great beast, what the separate beasts had broken down into parts.

Vs.7 The angel tells him: I'm going to tell you the mystery of this beast having seven heads and ten horns. Vs.9 The seven heads are seven mountains. Now some people say that because there are seven mountains in Rome, Rome is being talked about here _ we'll see.

Vs 10 There are SEVEN KINGS (now, whose writing this? _ John, the revelator, on the isle of Patmos, in the first century. Who ruled the world in the first century? _ The Roman Empire. _ the Empire was symbolized by the Legs of iron, symbolized by the nondescript beast, the Empire that would follow the Goat. This Roman Empire is ruling while John is writing.)

Now, read vs. 10 _ there are seven kings, five are fallen, one is _ well we know what the one is _ Rome _ five are fallen before Rome, is that what it says? And it's the same beast with seven heads that symbolized seven kings, five are fallen, one is, the other is not yet come.

Ok, Rome is the one that IS in Johns day, and because five are fallen, Rome is number six! Number seven is not here yet, in Johns day. When he (number seven) cometh, he must continue a short space. Old number seven, he doesn't get much time. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is of the eighth! Now what is that referring to?

Alright, go back to the 7th verse. The angel said unto me, I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, which I can tell you is the false church, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns., vs8 the beast that thou sawest was, is not, and shall arise out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition. And they that dwell upon the earth shall wonder.

Ok, let's do that slow. The beast that thou sawest WAS (that's pre John), and IS NOT (he is not around ruling when John is writing this), and SHALL ASCEND, that means it's yet to come, (where does he come from?), from out of the bottomless pit, and shall go into perdition. Now there is only one word in the New Testament that is translated variously as darkness, pit, bottomless pit, and occasionally abyss. But, only one word is being translated _ ABYSS.

When Jesus was walking around in Galilee, in the Gospels, he came upon a demoniac, and the demons in that person, said, "have you come to send us to the ABYSS before our time is due"? They knew about the bottomless pit!

In this same book of revelation, out of the bottomless pit, after the 144,000 are sealed, will come a smoke that releases demons with the power to bring pain but not death across the earth, and when Armageddon is finished in revelation 19, as the 20th chapter opens, John says, I saw an angel come down from heaven having a great chain in his hand, he lays hold on that old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, binds him 1000 years, and casts him, the King James says, into the bottomless pit, but the word used, the only word used is ABYSS!

Here, on this beast that has the seven heads and ten horns at the time of the end, which is consistent with the other imagery, there is one of the head that creates a mystery in the first scene because it's wounded unto death, and then it reappears. Now the angel is saying, of that one, of the seven heads that you see, wounded unto death, then reappearing, let me explain to you what it is.

It is a head (spiritual head of a kingdom) that was, before you were looking at this scene, John, is not now, while you are looking at this scene, John, but shall arise, after you John, somewhere in the future, and will arise out of the bottomless pit, and go on to perdition.

The wounded head, which is a symbol of Antichrist, is not some human ruler that survives an assassination attempt. The wounded head, is the head of one of the these seven kingdoms, symbolized by the 7 heads on the beast.

And, the head of one of these historic kingdoms, symbolized by the seven heads on the beast, that existed prior to John, is wounded, or stricken, and is not in any ruling position, when John is, and we know where it is, because when it reappears, it will come out of the bottomless pit.

So, one of these heads of the seven kingdoms, had been stricken, and had been put in the bottomless pit, and is in the bottomless pit, when John is seeing this vision, but at a time in the future, will come out of the bottomless pit, go into perdition, and is the power, or head over the last, eighth, Antichrist kingdom.

So, this beast, that was and is not and will be again, is none other than a demonic force that ruled one of these seven kingdoms, that is in the bottomless pit at the time that John is prophesying, who will be released, as other demons are, out of the bottomless pit, will literally possess the little horn, will literally possess the man on the white horse, that comes forth as Antichrist, and when that demon enters into him, he will go into perdition, and become the evil figure of the end, that Antichrist can be, which explains why, that both Daniel and Revelations speak of great miracles performed by this Antichrist.

Now, one last footnote, and I will tie the strings together.

How many of you remember that Daniel was praying, and an angel came to him, in the 10th chapter. Angels are too often caricatured as little cupids with fluffy wings. I've said this before, but if God answers the way He ought to, when you leave, and tell your little Johnny, to be like and angel, when you got back, the whole neighborhood would be wiped out! They're mean critters!, he said laughingly!

Now, a third of Heavens angels, rose up in rebellion, after the crowning cherub, Lucifer, and were cast out of Heaven, and ever since Adam gave up his dominion on earth, to the prince of the power of the air, he has been ruling, and will rule, until we come to this passage in revelations, where Michael is turned loose to cast him out of the heavens.

He is there to appear with the sons of God to accuse Job, and nothing has changed in that capacity to accuse, except that we now have and advocate with the Father, defending us against those accusations, covering us with His own atonement. Satan is still the Prince of the power of the air. Demons are still very much alive! Those demon forces will have their last orgy during this tribulation period.

Now, back in Daniel 10, it says that Daniel was praying, and an angel appeared. That angel, said to Daniel, I heard you three weeks earlier, but I was resisted in getting here. At the time Daniel prayed, the silver kingdom, the Medo_Persian kingdom, the Ram, ruled, and one of the 7 heads was ruling.

You know all the symbols, the Ram, the Bear, the silver, and one of those seven heads, symbolizing the Medo_Persian Kingdom was in command. Daniel was praying, an angel appeared and said, I heard you three weeks ago, but the Prince of Persia resisted me. And, I couldn't get here because of that resistance for three weeks. And, even then wouldn't have made it, if Michael, (paraphrasing) had not come to fight with me. And he refers to Michael as the Prince of Princes, which removes from any doubt, where the Prince hood was seeded. He's not talking about and earthly king of Persia, he's talking about a Prince of evil, a lieutenant of Satan, the Prince of the power of the air, that kingdom that Paul says, in the New Testament, we wrestle against not flesh and blood, but wickedness in high places.

A lieutenant of Satan, was the true ruler of this beastly kingdom, Medo_Persia, the Bear! And, that evil demon force, had such influence and power, that Daniel in the city of the kingdom of Persia, praying to the eternal God, receiving an answer from an angel, that angel must fight his way through those powers, and get help from Michael to be able to get to Daniel, and it took him three weeks!

Then that angel says, having delivered the message to you, I have another one. He furthermore points out, Michael owed me one, and he speaks of a time, that the scripture gives no detail of, when Michael had a battle, and this angel, messenger of Daniel, had served with Michael, in that case. So, now the score was even.

The modern mind can hardly conceive of these war fares between demons and angels in the fight of the ages. It makes us kind of look like foot soldiers. But Daniel makes it clear, that there was a Prince of Persia, an evil spirit, not a human prince, because he was resisted by Michael Prince of Princes, who we know is an angel, and kept this angel from getting there for 3 weeks. Then comes the good news. This angel says, now, I'm going back where Michael is carrying on this holding action, and when we get done, the Prince of Persia is no more, but lo, the Prince of Grecia comes.

Now we have an explanation of why the Ram, that was Medo_Persia, in that third vision, that we looked at last class, that had power that no one could resist, suddenly, with no explanation, the Ram is powerless, and the Goat comes, so powerful that nothing can stand in it's place. What's the explanation? Gap again! In between the Ram and the Goat there is a loss of power.

Because the conflict that is talked of between the angels, when the messenger goes back from Daniel, and beats the stuffing out of the Prince of Persia, now a new demon force called the Prince of Grecia, empowering Alexander the Great, which explains his amazing military conquering of the world, will sweep across Medo_Persia, without any resistance.

Now, when you read of the four horns on the Goat, the notable horn being broken off, replaced by four, symbols of the Generals of Alexander (Seleucus, Ptolemy, Cassandra and Lysimachus), the phrase of scripture will be, the four horns come up in place of the notable horn, prophetic of Alexander the Great, cut off in his prime, replaced by four of his Generals, but it says very clearly in scripture, they will have his territory, but not his power.

Why? Because the power that was the Prince of Grecia, that gave power to the notable horn, Alexander the Great, is wounded and is put in the ABYSS. And that is the demon being that will be released during tribulation, and come out of the bottomless pit, and enter into a new world ruler, Antichrist, the little horn, the man on the white horse, with a bow and no arrow.

When that same demon that powered Alexander the Great, called the Prince of Grecia, enters into Antichrist, whomever he may be, symbolized by all of these beasts, now symbolized by the wounded head restored, Antichrist, under full demon force, will be in place.

When John said all this, five WERE, one WAS and another is yet to come. And before Rome, are only, Greece, Medo_Persia, Babylon, three, where are the other two? In the beast of Revelation, we have the full picture of the beastly kingdoms under Satan's power that oppressed God's chosen people, the seed of Abraham.

In Daniel, because the prophecy starts with the head, that section of history is focused on and what follows, narrows to Medo_Persia, and Grecia in the third prophecy, but in revelation, we go back to two previous kingdoms that competes the history of those beastly kingdoms that oppressed the seed of Abraham, who were, Egypt, first, and second Assyria, that carried the northern kingdoms and most of Judah into bondage, then Babylon was number three, then Medo_Persia was number four, then Grecia was number five, then Rome was number six, then the GAP, then there comes a short time Kingdom(the seventh _ The Moslem Empire), followed by a ruler into whom the same demon that possessed Alexander the Great will enter (the eighth out of the seventh), and when that kingdom is set up, thank God we'll be gone.

Now from this gestalt, I want to prove from specific scripture, the point of this wounded head, and wounded beast, and the scenario that locates him precisely, in the area of the Seleucid kingdom, pictured on your map.

But, that's the subject of the next class.
