God so loved his children in this generation that he gave Daniel a vision, and that vision can prepare us for what is going to come to pass. The seventh chapter was written in the first year of King Bel-shaz-zar, King of Babylon. This would mean the sixth chapter should follow, for it records the end of King Bel-shaz-zar's rule and life, and the splitting of the kingdoms. Its occurrence was 3-1/2 years before the Babylonian fall and the rise of the Medes and Persian empires.
Daniel wants to go back to that time to alert us to a vision he had. Note also there is a 3-1/2 year period in this chapter that is out of sequence. What could that mean?
God is using these two (2) 3-1/2 year periods to relate to another two (2) periods of 3-1/2 years which this generation will face when Antichrist appears upon earth in human, supernatural form. Yet we know from Revelation 9:5 and Matthew 24:22 that Jesus said these 3-1/2 year periods would be shortened to five (5) months. If you plan to wait until the end of 3-1/2 years to act, you're too late; for by then you will be well into the millennium period.
This word of prophecy of this chapter sets the key to understanding all prophecy given to this final generation. It allows you and I to know exactly how Antichrist shall function in this generation.
Daniel 7:1 "In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dram and visions on his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream and told the sum of the matters."
In this dream, Belshazzar was to be the last king of Babylon, and the time was not ready to let this dream known until after the dreams and changes came to pass.
Daniel 7:2 Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea."
Your mind should go immediately to the seventh chapter of the Book of Revelation. What is being discussed here? The end of this earth age; the final generation, which now is this topic.
"Revelation 7:1 "And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, [not heaven or hell, but on the earth] that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree."
In other words, these "four winds" will bring about the end of this particular generation, or dispensation.
In another verse they said hold the four winds until we have sealed the people of God in the foreheads, or minds, that they not be deceived. Then the end would come. In Ezekiel 37 God told Ezekiel to prophecy to those dry bones (spiritually dead people). And when they were preached to, they came alive and came back together. The eternal life came back into the souls of these people of God.
Daniel 7:3 "And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another."
This is not the same dream of chapter two, because they all come up at one time. This dream is going to be utilized to show us the method allowed by God, and carried out by Satan, to bring about those final hours. Here there are four individual beasts, and all these four beasts comprise that fifth part of Daniel 2.
Daniel 7:4 "The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I behold till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it."
In other words, the first looked like a lion, and we were told that it was Nebuchadnezzar. What is the eagle's wings? It's the protection of God. This is the same kingdom that is referred to as a "leopard" kingdom in Revelation 13:2-3. This animal has spots, and is ready at the right time to do its destruction.
Daniel 7:5 "And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, 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."
This bear nation is the bear nation of "Esau". We know that to be the nation of Russia, and just before the end times there is to be a major split. Today we see this prophecy to be history from 1993. Here in the fifth verse we see that this bear nation will rise on one side and "devour much flesh". To a degree, this part of prophecy has already started, however, it is still prophecy yet to come. God is not through with Russia yet. We see here in this verse that this bear will rise on not the front or back feet, but "it raised up on itself on one side". It will be deceptive, appearing to be rolling over, then arising, and striking.
Though we see Russia today as not on its feet, but rolling to its side, and in a position of weakness, she is not. Daniel's vision shows us also that this bear (Esau or Russia) will cause three other nations (the three ribs) a great deal of harm.
Daniel 7:6 "After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl, the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it."
The leopard here is a great spotted leopard, and in the "Song of Moses" we read: "They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of his children: they are a perverse and crooked generation." (Deuteronomy 32:5.) The Song of Moses is what is to be in the final generation as Antichrist is defeated. This spotted leopard refers to the "Kenites", the offspring of Satan through Cain. (See Strong's #7014 in the Hebrew dictionary.)
The struggle for control of all areas of life we see was very strong in Jesus' day, as I Chronicles 2:55 tells us. They were the scribes when the Jews came out of Babylon. In the Book of Ezra and the Book of Nehemiah we see that at the return, the entire priesthood was taken over by these (false) non-Jewish Levites. Then in Ezra 2:61-63 we read that there was not one Levite in the entire priesthood. The "Kenites", or offspring of Satan, took control of the entire religious order from the top to the chores of cutting wood.
Is it any wonder it's so hard to understand the true meaning of God's word after this band of Kenite scribes set out to corrupt its translation. It is because Ezra and Nehemiah (the writers and prophets) saw the perversion taking place, they set out to write the Massoretic texts to the books of the Old Testament. And then they scattered these texts so the Kenites could not corrupt them.
Jesus knew the religious leaders of his day were mostly from the race of Kenites and not of our brother, Judah. This is why he told his disciples in Matthew 13:11 that he spoke in parables. The truth, or mysteries, are not for them to know.
In this final generation, these Kenites are going to solidify the people and prepare the way for the acceptance of Antichrist. The "four wings" are the protective force given this leopard for all peoples of the earth. while the "four heads" are the four hidden dynasties to rule and control all facets of life in the final generation of this earth age.
Those four heads, or hidden dynasties of the world, are political, economical, educational, and religious. The controlling force (or leopard) is the "Kenite", or offspring of Cain, Satan's child through Eve. (See the chapter on the "Kenite" and "The Parable of the Fig Tree".) The "one world order" is now in place and has been for years. Daniel is telling us to "wake up", for when we see this, observe the rest of the prophecies come to pass, for Satan then is going to come to earth to rule for five (5) months. (See Revelation 9:5.)
Through these four hidden dynasties the entire world, except God's elect, will freely, willingly, and gladly worship and give total submission to Antichrist (Satan), and to his one world order. The "new world order" is here and now. Our military moves at its command.
Our educational system is dominated, taught and promoted by the leaders of that one worldism. Our denominational churches, the Catholic Church, most all of Judaism, and shortly all religions of the world will fall under the control of these godless men. And through this control you will be led, with a glad heart, to support this system.
Though the entire world is now on a path to bankruptcy, the new order will offer peace and prosperity to all that will follow her, and conform to her standards. This is a political order (the United Nations) and with all the problems we face now, with Antichrist and his hoards of fallen angels, the money presses will roll, and a false prosperity will come (at least for five(5) months.).
Daniel 7:7 "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth 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."
Many teachers say this is a "non-descript beast". I think there is a good description given about this beast. Once you become familiar with the Book of Revelation, it is apparent what this description fits. This description is for the one world order.
We call it the new world order. Though it is peaceful and does bring peace, it is for a very short time.
To get a better description of this beast of the "new world order", let's look at Revelation 17:12. "And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast."
The horn is symbolic of power, yet these ten kings will rule as the "one world order" system for one hour with Antichrist (Satan) when he walks upon this earth.
It is obvious this fourth beast of Daniel 7:7 is very well described. It is very clear that this is that one world political power that rises out of the sea (the people or nations of the earth).
Revelation 17:15 "And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues."
How then does it come together? By peace; world peace is the very theme of this godless political body. The involvement of military commitment by all member nations under the disguise of peace is the method used to force all members to conform to the United Nations agenda. It just won't work, though, because Christianity and communism just don't mix. Until Christians are so convinced by deception, that Antichrist is Christ, there will not be world peace. This is why we will see the falling apart of this "new world order". Christians just will not accept it. When this occurs, the United Nations' strength will be gone, for no nation will pay their dues, send military forces, or recognize it for anything but a shell. It will receive its political "head wound" and be dead.
So we see the ten horns are ten kings that will get their power from the one world system. This is God's plan. Don't fear it. It is coming to pass and now we can watch and know what will happen as these prophecies occur. Even President Clinton says our military forces can't respond without authority from the United Nations. The world court governs the legality of our actions. Our nation now has been given over to the new world order, and when Christians wake up, and take
back, we'll move into the time of great deception, the tribulation. This beast is the same as the ten toes of Nebuchadnezzar's dream of Daniel 2.
We saw the beast's teeth were of iron. What is it then that will break apart nations? It's his lies and deception.
Daniel 7:8 "I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in the horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things."
Now turn to Revelations 17:10-11.
Revelation 17:10 "And there are seven kings: five are fallen and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space."
Revelation 17:11 "And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition."
These seven kings are all Satan (the son of perdition) in seven different time periods of the past. The "eighth is of the seven" because it is also Satan, as Antichrist. He will go to perdition (destruction) when his time is finished.
Daniel has given us, in this seventh chapter, the four stages that this "one world government" will come (has come) into a reality. He has told us from which nations the solidification of this government would transpire, and we in this generation have lived to see this come to pass. We now have the new world order, though it is in a fragile state and about to be challenged; under Antichrist it will be solid. Only a small number of people called the elect will stand and know what is really going on, as the entire church world goes whoring after Antichrist.
How could this little horn have the eyes of man, and the mouth to speak? Because Satan will be and appear as a man.
Daniel 7:9 "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 his wheels as burning fire."
This ninth verse records the return of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Upon His return, all thrones are torn down, and all men and women will bow to worship Christ. He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
It is interesting that the throne of Christ that returns here is exactly as Ezekiel describes that throne in Ezekiel 1:4-28. That throne is recorded to be circular, and in a cloud and a fire (in both Ezekiel and Daniel). Ezekiel says the spaceship (or throne) had the color of amber, where Strong's #2830 reads, "Bronze, highly polished, amber". We see also a fire came out from the middle, as Ezekiel stood on the ground and looked up.
How could this be, for many tell us God is a force, or a spirit? God is like us, for we are made in His image. Though it's hard to understand now, when we see him, he will look like man, only He is our Father. Why will He return to earth? Because He has business here, and that business will come to pass exactly as He said it would. We are approaching that time when there is no more time to choose, for you will either be sealed with the truth in your mind, or follow Antichrist.
Daniel 7:10 "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."
Why were these people standing before him? To serve. When Christ returns of the last day of this earth age, at the seventh trump, He will establish His kingdom upon the earth; that kingdom is called the "Millennium". Though Jesus returns to earth then, the full God-head does not return then. However, the Father will come to earth following the final judgment, and the lake of fire.
It is then that the New Jerusalem comes down out of heaven, as we read about in Revelation Chapters 21 & 22. The heavenly Father will be here then and our time with Him will be eternal, and that the human mind simply cannot comprehend.
Daniel 7:11 "I beheld the because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame."
I guess it's easy to see now who the non-descript beast is; for he is the first to go into the fire. That horn is Satan, and his world government will be the "one world system" which is making preparation now for all but the "elect of Christ" to receive him.
When will Satan's time be? See Revelation 19:19-20.
Revelation 19:19 "And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army."
Revelation 19:20 "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone."
This is both the religious and political systems.
Daniel 7:12 "As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time."
Though Satan's world government is destroyed at the return of Christ to earth, Satan will be bound until following the millennium. The release of Satan will be for a short season at the end of the 1,000 year reign of Jesus. Then all of Satan's followers will be having their second death, and go to ashes.
It is amazing how this Book of Daniel is a second witness to the Book of Revelation.
Daniel 7:13 "I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him."
We known from Ezekie 34 that David returns also. The "ancient of days" is the Messiah, the true Messiah.
Daniel 7:14 "And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed."
There will be no more gaps in the reign of Christ's kingdom and domain. This kingdom is eternal. And all peoples, nations, and languages will either be part of it, or they will be ashes. That return of Jesus Christ, and the start of this millennium time will be very shortly, measured in months, or a few years. It will be in this generation's lifetime.
When all people are changed to their spiritual bodies, instantly, all will bow to Jesus.
Daniel 7:15 "I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me."
Daniel was not confused in the other visions of chapters 2-4, however, he was not aware of the nations of Jacob (the United States and Great Britain), and Esau (Russia), and this grieved him. We live in the age of this vision, however, to Daniel it was not reality, but a dream. Daniel dreamed of the rebirth of "Israel", the homeland to the Jews; however, we witnessed it on May 15, 1948. The new world order appeared as a nightmare then, yet now we are asked to accept it as a good and right thing to do. Yes, Daniel had a lot to grieve about in his confusion. But his confusion is our reality.
Many take and twist the verses to fit their liking, and overlook the iron teeth of Daniel 7:7 which will destroy them. For it is the lies and deceptions that do come out of Antichrist to poison their minds and devour them as a scorpion takes its prey.
Learn and know how Satan will come and attack. Put on the armor of God. Now is the time of preparation, for when Antichrist comes, you will fall if you cannot identify him, and know how he works. Daniel 7:16-28 is the interpretation of this vision.
Daniel Chapter 7 (b)
God loves his children and desires that his own people will read, study, and know what is coming upon them. The plan Our Heavenly Father set in motion to draw His own to Him through the precious blood of Jesus Christ has drawn millions of saints to Him, through centuries of time.
Of all the generations that have lived on earth, to the creation of mankind, there is one generation that will be tested and tried like none other. My dear friend, you are living in that generation. That generation's starting point was at the establishment of the tiny nation of "Israel" on May 15, 1948. Then we saw the Jews (both good and bad figs) returning to Palestine from all nations of the earth.
The reason for such attention to this generation is that Satan and the entire host of fallen angels in heaven will be thrown out of heaven [see Revelation 12:7-10] by Michael. The place they will go to is right here on earth. During Satan's rule on earth, most of the church world today are taught that it will be a time of killing, death, war, disease, famine, and any other hideous things you could possibly imagine. They believe strange stinging insects, like scorpions, will be released and sickness will be running wild.
However, through a dream of Margaret MacDonald, a mentally ill woman of Scotland, a vision of a snatching-away of Christians would take place prior to the release of all the hoards of fallen angels and their leader, Satan. This damnable false vision has left much of the entire world star-gazing and in a false sense of security (called the rapture) instead of opening their eyes and ears, and getting prepared for the grand master of all lies and tricks known as Satan, the Antichrist.
The vision we are studying in Daniel 7 is not meant for Daniel, but far into the future, and right into our generation. from the very first books of the Bible, through all the prophets of both the Old and New Testaments, they all are giving instructions to you for this time of testing.
Daniel was troubled with this dream or vision because it was different. The other visions started with things he could understand, and with empires and people he knew and talked with, like Nebuchadnezzar, Babylon, and so on.
In this vision of Daniel 7, he was not shown the actual happening, but those events in the form of symbols. Because of the nature of the vision, the distant time in the future, and so on, God told him simply to write it down and go about his business. "But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days." (Daniel 12:13.)
Daniel 7:15 "I Daniel was grieved in my spirit in the midst of my body, and the visions of my head troubled me."
Daniel was upset at the vision he had in the first 14 verses of chapter 7.
Daniel 7:16 "I came near unto one of them that stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me, and made me know the interpretation of the things."
Daniel was troubled and wanted to know the dream's interpretation of all parts of his dream. This vision is given just for us who live in that last generation, yet most Christians stumble on, willing to accept the "traditions of men" from other generations that could have had no concept or idea of what we are going through now.
It is a total subversion of all our Biblical standards, redefining the words of God, and watering them down to a point of total deception; and the words and methods to be used by Satan (the Antichrist) will make them stumble right into Satan's houses of harlots that we call churches today.
The truth of God's word is being dried up, and substituted with a false (counterfeit) religion that will look, sound, and be so close to what they have been taught. This is why Jesus told us to learn His word so that we are not deceived. Know the "parable of the fig tree", who the "Kenites" are, as well as all the "mysteries" Paul taught dealing with our bodies. The words of the Bible will then have meaning.
Here now is the interpretation God revealed to Daniel.
Daniel 7:17 "These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth."
These four kings that arise do not come out of heaven or hell, but everyday life and living upon the earth. What is going to happen is going on right before our eyes, and we see it on television, read it in the papers, and know it as it happens. God is telling Daniel it will be much later, for we know it occurs in our day.
Daniel 7:18 "But the saints [set aside ones] of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever."
The saints are God's servants who placed the armor of God of Ephesians 6:10-21 on themselves, and they are prepared for Satan's arrival. They know what to expect, and how to combat Satan, when he as the Antichrist comes against them. The saints shall fight against the little horn; and, my friend in Christ, that will be a spiritual battle, a war of words, ideas, deceptions. It will be a war of the mind through false doctrine.
That is why we must have the seal the truth of God in our minds. For either the seal, or knowledge of God's Word will be there, or "the mark of the beast" will be there. That mark is the mark of confusion that God will allow you to have, to follow Satan and do his work, while all the time you think he is Jesus Christ. It will be the Antichrist seeking to have you fly with him, and you will for you will do it in ignorance, for your looking for a rapture that will not come.
Daniel 7:19 "Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;"
This beast will be diverse, and that is why it is called non-descript. It is a system, not an entity like Nebuchadnezzar's empire. The churches' "teeth of iron" (lies and deceptions), and the "nails of brass" (traditions and methods of control) will, and are now, forcing its members and followers to believe traditions, to accept false ideas (such as sodomy and pagan practices), and neglect the truths Jesus Christ said to know.
The reason most churches don't teach chapter by chapter and verse by verse is that the method would disprove many of their own traditions.
Daniel 7:20 "And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows."
The horn that fell is the little horn. This is the identification and description of the Antichrist.
Daniel 7:21 "I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;"
The Antichrist caused most of the saints of God (Christians) to fall. For we know only the elect of God who had prepared themselves, did not. Satan is the false Jesus.
Daniel 7:22 "Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom."
This happens at the last trump. The "Ancient of days" that will come is Jesus Christ. That is the end of this earth age, whereby mankind is born of woman. Those saints that have held to the faith, and not followed Antichrist, are the winners, and will jointly rule the kingdom through the millennium with Christ.
These events here are not simply salvation, but learning, knowing, and living in the meat of God's word.
Daniel 7:23 "Thus he said, 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."
You can see this one world system now forming, with the false messiah will rule at its head. That's all it amounts to. The political system, or beast will receive a mortal wound, and end it's world rule for a very brief time, as we read in Revelation 13.
Revelation 13:3 "And I saw one of the heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast."
Remember that this beast is as a one world system, and in the beginning, this system takes a political form. We know the form today as the United Nations, with it's ten major agencies, which have the entire world under its ruling charter of international laws, treaties, and trade agreements. However, when the world wakes up to see the strength of this Godless beast, the political form will end. When a political beast is dead, it simply does not function as a government any more. This will set the stage for the coming of the Antichrist, Satan, and his arrival to earth.
Why will it be diverse of all kingdoms? Because it's going to be religious, with one ruler. Just listen to most newscasts and much of it deals strictly with affairs of it. It is seeking total control of the entire earth. What the United Nations does, it does only to promote its own agenda. As genocide went on in Cambodia, Bosnia, and elsewhere, the United Nations looked the other way. Kurds were being gassed in Iraq, and entire cities eliminated, and the United Nations' blinders were on. However, years later, after the fact, the United Nations used what it so blatantly overlooked, as the slaughter took place, as the excuse to move against Iraq when it took Kuwait and their oil.
The United Nations is still growing and moving to world wide control through its many agencies. We know, though, that the time of "breaking down" and "breaking it to pieces" has not yet come. This is future. However, it is a very close future. We may be talking about months instead of years.
Daniel 7:24 "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."
What were those ten horns? The same as the "ten toes" of the image in Chapter 2. These ten horns are ten kings.
Who is this that rises after the ten kings? We saw in Revelation that this beast (ten king system) rose from the sea. That sea is the peoples of the world. They are men, or ruling agencies by men. The description in Revelation 13 of the seven that were, and one yet to come is simply Satan's title.
Now in Daniel 7:24, the one that shall rise is also Satan. My Christian friend, the fourth kingdom of Daniel 7 is the same "one world system" of the ten kings of Revelation 13. And the one that shall rise after them is Satan, and his role as the Antichrist.
Daniel 7:25"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 three kings that are subdues out of the ten kingdoms, I feel, are the three nations representing Ephraim and Manasseh: the United States, Canada, and Great Britain. Though we talk about three kingdoms, it is still a "one world system", the "wearing out of the saints" is to afflict or deceive the saints. We see today how sodomites, and every other perverted organization, are out to change times (meaning seasons) and laws. The laws today are so twisted and worked over that murdered go free and jaywalkers get time in jail. Good is bad, right is wrong, and the absolute laws of God are diluted to mean little more than vague definitions.
The Heavenly Father states here He will allow it for three and one-half years. Jesus says that time will be shortened, and Revelations 9:5 makes it five months.
Revelation 9:5 "And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man."
If you do not know the truth before the Antichrist comes, it's too late. It's like the seal of the thunders. The thunder follows the lightening, thus when Satan comes (the lightening) the seal of understanding and being prepared is too late. Upon Satan's [the Antichrist's] arrival, you will be stung as the scorpion and rendered helpless.
Daniel 7:26 "But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end."
When is the end? At Christ's return. We will have victory then, and this earth age will be over.
Daniel 7:27 "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 and everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him."
What is under heaven? The earth! We don't have to worry about the kingdom of the earth, for our kingdom is for ever and ever. As the most precious part of our salvation, Christ gave us an immortal soul body (that shall never die) and that incorruptible body (spiritual) that shall live forever, as we see in I Corinthians15:51-54.
I Corinthians 15:51 "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed."
I Corinthians 15:52 "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."
I Corinthians 15:53 "For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality."
I Corinthians 15:54 "So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory."
The entire earth will worship Jesus Christ at His return.
Daniel 7:28 "Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart."
It's easy for you and I to understand and see how, the Jews can reform their nation, because it was done before their eyes. We can see how the world seeks worldwide peace, as most of the people today have lived under the threat of a nuclear holocaust, or wars on a worldwide scale. Television, radio, and word of mouth have shaped all minds of the world, except those of the elect, to accept the idea of putting all law, education, religion, food distribution, and so on under one system; for then all mankind is equal, safe, and secure. However, as this has happened, the blessings of our God given rights are then taken for the sake of the masses.
The problem is that the world simply cannot support such a one world system, and very shortly it will collapse. From such confusion as these deceptive, and lying international bandits, the stage is set for the final time of testing, and it will be a deception this world has never seen before. It is then that Michael sends Satan to earth, and through the massive confusion, Satan performs his wonders for the people of the world, and cause them to accept Satan's peace and prosperity. The cost of partaking in that one world system is to worship Satan.
How do you worship him? Simply by saying, "He is God".
That will be easy for the Christian world, for their "traditions" and "Kenite" twisting of the truth have left most to believe the true messiah is the first on the scene. So, off they go, just like harlots. There will only be a small number who know the truth. They are called "the elect".
Now, with all this in mind, is there any wonder that Daniel, at seeing, was confused and disturbed in his heart.
This is no reason you should. If you are saved and have prepared yourself, you will not stray, and at Jesus' return, your reign with Christ will also be forever and ever; world without end.
