The book of Daniel offers rare insights into the bloodline of the Antichrist. Written during the Babylonian captivity, Daniel introduces the “times of the Gentiles” – and gives the roots of the man who will conclude the era with his diabolical attempt to destroy the Chosen People.
There have been many candidates for the Antichrist down through the ages, but all of these men before were mere foreshadows of that future “man of sin” …the “seed” of the serpent …the “little horn” of Daniel’s visions.
Discover in chapters 10-12 that Daniel is told that the Antichrist will come out of the Seleucid dynasty – again, a Syrian Ruler of Greek Descent.
Learn if the Antichrist will be from both Greek and Roman descent.
In this timeless book by the founder of Prophecy in the News, Dr. J.R. Church examines all that the prophet Daniel has to say about the Antichrist, and compare his findings with New Testament Scriptures in order to build a composite description of this diabolical enemy.
According to Flavius Josephus, a first-century Jewish historian, the prophecies of Daniel were admired and studied by the political leaders of Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome. Even Titus and other Roman emperors respected the ancient prophet. Daniel’s view of “the times of the Gentiles” has thus far been fulfilled with uncanny accuracy.
Beyond his writing about the four kingdoms and the cutting off of the Messiah, Daniel focused on the roots and works of the future Antichrist. No other Old Testament prophet spent as many chapters on the “little horn” as Daniel. In fact, when John penned the Apocalypse, most of his metaphors, the beast, three and a half years timing, God’s throne, etc. alluded to Daniel’s visions.
The prophecy of the “seventy weeks” has perplexed theologians for centuries. Many have tried to figure out the timing, but with little success. However, in this volume, you will discover that Daniel’s “weeks” were fulfilled in concert with the Sabbatical cycles, as given in the Mosaic Law. Problems with the dating occurred because 2nd-century rabbis removed 243 years from their calendar in order to cause Daniel’s prophecy to line up with Rabbi Akiva’s declaration that Bar Kokhba was the promised “star” out of Jacob. You will find that this book fills in the historical gaps and lays out the calendar of events in an easy-to-understand format.
