  • 00:04:56.279 --> 00:04:57.914
  • The Bible says that,"In the third year of Cyrus

  • till all those three weekshad passed."
  • 00:05:19.769 --> 00:05:22.705

  • from God, but in the meantime,I'm in a period
  • 00:05:24.540 --> 00:05:27.210
  • of fasting and mourning."
  • 00:05:27.210 --> 00:05:29.645
  • And we don't know for sureuntil we read why he's so sad.
  • 00:05:29.645 --> 00:05:33.249
  • King Cyrushas proclaimed amnesty
  • 00:05:33.249 --> 00:05:37.320

  • and rebuild their city.
  • 00:05:42.592 --> 00:05:43.926

  • 00:06:15.324 --> 00:06:18.594
  • The Scripture recordsthat when they got back there,

  • they build the foundationof the temple, they actually
  • 00:06:21.197 --> 00:06:24.133

  • continue the project.
  • 00:06:26.969 --> 00:06:28.471
  • They got discouraged.

  • And Daniel loved his people,and he mourned for them,

  • 00:07:34.637 --> 00:07:38.074

  • on his face in what the Biblerefers to as "a deep sleep."

  • outside of the realmof our comprehension
  • 00:07:56.359 --> 00:07:59.195

  • "a hand touched me,and made me tremble on my knees
  • 00:08:03.199 --> 00:08:06.202
  • and on the palms of my hands.
  • 00:08:06.202 --> 00:08:08.371

  • 00:09:56.545 --> 00:09:59.548
  • in the heavenly places."
  • 00:09:59.548 --> 00:10:01.450
  • In other words,while we may not see it,
  • 00:10:01.450 --> 00:10:04.387
  • there is an unseen battlethat is raging all around us
  • 00:10:04.387 --> 00:10:07.723
  • in the worldin which we live today.
  • 00:10:07.723 --> 00:10:09.992
  • You say, "Why is that true?"
  • 00:10:09.992 --> 00:10:11.427
  • Because when Satanwas kicked out of heaven,
  • 00:10:11.427 --> 00:10:14.196
  • he took a third of the angelswith him, and organized them
  • 00:10:14.196 --> 00:10:17.433
  • into his band of evil angels.
  • 00:10:17.433 --> 00:10:19.568
  • And they are highly organized,and they are about the business
  • 00:10:19.568 --> 00:10:23.239
  • of the satanic purpose.
  • 00:10:23.239 --> 00:10:26.575
  • The Bible says that when Gabrielleft heaven to come down here
  • 00:10:26.575 --> 00:10:30.346
  • and deliver God's answerto Daniel concerning his prayer
  • 00:10:30.346 --> 00:10:34.417
  • that Satan dispatched his angel,the one called the prince
  • 00:10:34.417 --> 00:10:39.355
  • of Persia, and this angelintercepted God's angel,
  • 00:10:39.355 --> 00:10:44.794
  • and the two angels had a battle.
  • 00:10:44.794 --> 00:10:47.830
  • It was a titanic collisionbetween good and evil.
  • 00:10:47.830 --> 00:10:52.735
  • And this continued to go onfor 3 long weeks.
  • 00:10:52.735 --> 00:11:00.743
  • Why didn't Danielget his answer?
  • 00:11:00.743 --> 00:11:03.112
  • He couldn't possibly have known.
  • 00:11:03.112 --> 00:11:05.147
  • But the answer was on its way,but it was delayed
  • 00:11:05.147 --> 00:11:07.583
  • by satanic intervention.
  • 00:11:07.583 --> 00:11:10.686
  • Now, the Bible saysthat this battle that's going on
  • 00:11:10.686 --> 00:11:13.189
  • between the prince of Persiaand the angel Gabriel,
  • 00:11:13.189 --> 00:11:16.559
  • who's on his waywith the message from God,
  • 00:11:16.559 --> 00:11:20.496
  • is finally won.
  • 00:11:20.496 --> 00:11:22.665
  • And it's won because Michael,one of the chief princes of God,
  • 00:11:22.665 --> 00:11:26.302
  • is sent from heaven to helpGabriel out in the battle.
  • 00:11:26.302 --> 00:11:30.506
  • Michael is the unsung heroof this story.
  • 00:11:30.506 --> 00:11:34.210
  • His name means,"Who is like God?"
  • 00:11:34.210 --> 00:11:38.380
  • He's the leading warriorin the great heavenly battle
  • 00:11:38.380 --> 00:11:41.150
  • against Satanin chapter 12 of Revelation.
  • 00:11:41.150 --> 00:11:43.385
  • It goes like this:"There was war in heaven:
  • 00:11:43.385 --> 00:11:45.688
  • and Michael and his angelsfought against the dragon;
  • 00:11:45.688 --> 00:11:48.190
  • and the dragonand his angels fought back."
  • 00:11:48.190 --> 00:11:52.294
  • In the book of Jude,he's called,
  • 00:11:52.294 --> 00:11:53.796
  • "The archangel Michael."
  • 00:11:53.796 --> 00:11:56.398
  • "Archangel" means "top angel,number one angel,
  • 00:11:56.398 --> 00:11:59.301
  • priority angel."
  • 00:11:59.301 --> 00:12:01.137
  • Michael's the only one in theBible who's given that title.
  • 00:12:01.137 --> 00:12:04.039
  • There's no other archangelsmentioned in the Bible,
  • 00:12:04.039 --> 00:12:06.375
  • which leads me to believethat when the Scripture
  • 00:12:06.375 --> 00:12:08.477
  • says that, "One day,the Lord himself shall return
  • 00:12:08.477 --> 00:12:11.013
  • with a shout, with a command,and the voice of the archangel,"
  • 00:12:11.013 --> 00:12:15.084
  • Michael's gonna bethe one who announces
  • 00:12:15.084 --> 00:12:16.952
  • Jesus is comin' back.
  • 00:12:16.952 --> 00:12:19.488
  • He's the archangel of God.
  • 00:12:19.488 --> 00:12:22.658
  • Well, we learn a little bitabout the details that previewed
  • 00:12:22.658 --> 00:12:25.394
  • this vision in verse 14 and 15:
  • 00:12:25.394 --> 00:12:28.631
  • "The angel said to me,'Now I have come to make you
  • 00:12:28.631 --> 00:12:31.734
  • understand what will happento your people
  • 00:12:31.734 --> 00:12:34.470
  • in the latter days.'"
  • 00:12:34.470 --> 00:12:35.805
  • Who are his people?
  • 00:12:35.805 --> 00:12:37.139
  • The Jews.
  • 00:12:37.139 --> 00:12:38.641
  • What will happento the Jewish people
  • 00:12:38.641 --> 00:12:40.609
  • in the latter days.
  • 00:12:40.609 --> 00:12:41.944
  • "And when he had spokensuch words to me,
  • 00:12:41.944 --> 00:12:44.180
  • I turned my facetoward the ground
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:46.182
  • and became speechless."
  • 00:12:46.182 --> 00:12:48.350
  • Daniel says, "The angel cameand he told me
  • 00:12:48.350 --> 00:12:51.153
  • what was gonna happento my people in the future."
  • 00:12:51.153 --> 00:12:54.523
  • And he said,"The message was so overwhelming
  • 00:12:54.523 --> 00:12:56.592
  • I couldn't deal with it.
  • 00:12:56.592 --> 00:12:58.794
  • I turned my face toward theground and I could not speak."
  • 00:12:58.794 --> 00:13:04.567
  • So traumaticwas this prophetic news
  • 00:13:04.567 --> 00:13:06.936
  • for Daniel that the Bible sayshe had to be strengthened
  • 00:13:06.936 --> 00:13:09.905
  • three times.
  • 00:13:09.905 --> 00:13:11.273
  • You read of it in verse 10,verse 16, and verse 19.
  • 00:13:11.273 --> 00:13:15.344
  • And due to Gabriel's patientadministration, Daniel is now
  • 00:13:15.344 --> 00:13:19.348
  • ready to receive the propheciesthat God sent from heaven.
  • 00:13:19.348 --> 00:13:26.355
  • That brings us to thepresentation of this vision,
  • 00:13:26.355 --> 00:13:29.592
  • which is in chapter 11.
  • 00:13:29.592 --> 00:13:33.395
  • I am not going to preachon every verse in chapter 11.
  • 00:13:33.395 --> 00:13:37.166
  • I'm not going to commenton every verse, but I want you
  • 00:13:37.166 --> 00:13:39.368
  • to get the overviewof what is about to happen.
  • 00:13:39.368 --> 00:13:43.005
  • God is going to tell Danielwhat will happen to his people
  • 00:13:43.005 --> 00:13:47.376
  • from the momenthe gets this message
  • 00:13:47.376 --> 00:13:50.179
  • all the way throughto the very end of time.
  • 00:13:50.179 --> 00:13:54.283
  • And the 11th chapter ofthe book of Daniel is organized
  • 00:13:54.283 --> 00:13:57.720
  • around 5 different men.
  • 00:13:57.720 --> 00:14:00.956
  • And these menare representatives of epochs
  • 00:14:00.956 --> 00:14:04.860
  • of history throughout the futurefor Daniel.
  • 00:14:04.860 --> 00:14:09.331
  • And I'm going to just give youa little sampling of what
  • 00:14:09.331 --> 00:14:12.401
  • God is going to tell Daniel.
  • 00:14:12.401 --> 00:14:15.104
  • All of these kingdomsin some way
  • 00:14:15.104 --> 00:14:18.207
  • affect the Jewish peoplein an adverse manner.
  • 00:14:18.207 --> 00:14:22.978
  • And the message beginswith the first king,
  • 00:14:22.978 --> 00:14:26.382
  • whose name is Ahasuerus.
  • 00:14:26.382 --> 00:14:29.451
  • Say that with me, "Ahasuerus."
  • 00:14:29.451 --> 00:14:32.988
  • The Bible tells us about himin these prophetic words.
  • 00:14:32.988 --> 00:14:37.059
  • Look at your Bible,chapter 11, verse 2:
  • 00:14:37.059 --> 00:14:40.195
  • "'Behold,'" Daniel,"'three more kings
  • 00:14:40.195 --> 00:14:42.998
  • will arise in Persia,and the fourth king shall be
  • 00:14:42.998 --> 00:14:47.803
  • far richer than them all;and by his strength,
  • 00:14:47.803 --> 00:14:51.740
  • and through his riches,he shall stir up all
  • 00:14:51.740 --> 00:14:55.444
  • against the realm of Greece.'"
  • 00:14:55.444 --> 00:14:57.579
  • The first prophecy the angelbrought to Daniel
  • 00:14:57.579 --> 00:15:01.417
  • concerned the futureof the Persian government,
  • 00:15:01.417 --> 00:15:04.053
  • under whichhe was currently serving.
  • 00:15:04.053 --> 00:15:06.322
  • During the timeof Ahasuerus,
  • 00:15:06.322 --> 00:15:08.390
  • the Jewish people went througha major, major crisis.
  • 00:15:08.390 --> 00:15:12.328
  • Read the book of Esther.
  • 00:15:12.328 --> 00:15:15.431
  • And then the next manwho comes on the scene,
  • 00:15:15.431 --> 00:15:18.300
  • according to the prophet,
  • 00:15:18.300 --> 00:15:19.635
  • will be a manby the name of Alexander.
  • 00:15:19.635 --> 00:15:22.171
  • We know who he is.
  • 00:15:22.171 --> 00:15:23.672
  • He is the great Grecian soldier.
  • 00:15:23.672 --> 00:15:26.275
  • Verse 3 of chapter 11 says:"A mighty king shall arise,
  • 00:15:26.275 --> 00:15:29.611
  • who shall rulewith great dominion,
  • 00:15:29.611 --> 00:15:32.047
  • and do according to his will."
  • 00:15:32.047 --> 00:15:34.883
  • The second king referencedis Alexander the Great
  • 00:15:34.883 --> 00:15:38.587
  • who came on the scene150 years later
  • 00:15:38.587 --> 00:15:41.523
  • and the description
  • 00:15:41.523 --> 00:15:42.958
  • in Daniel chapter 11,verses 3 and 4
  • 00:15:42.958 --> 00:15:45.361
  • is Alexander the Greatto a "T."
  • 00:15:45.361 --> 00:15:49.064
  • And it was during that timeunder Alexander that,
  • 00:15:49.064 --> 00:15:51.367
  • once again, the people of Israelsuffered greatly.
  • 00:15:51.367 --> 00:15:57.473
  • He was defeatedaccording to the Scripture
  • 00:15:57.473 --> 00:15:59.341
  • in a very special way.
  • 00:15:59.341 --> 00:16:01.510
  • Read verse 4.
  • 00:16:01.510 --> 00:16:02.845
  • It describes what would happento Alexander
  • 00:16:02.845 --> 00:16:05.314
  • hundreds of years in the future:"When he has arisen,
  • 00:16:05.314 --> 00:16:09.118
  • his kingdom shall bebroken up and divided
  • 00:16:09.118 --> 00:16:11.487
  • toward the four winds of heaven,
  • 00:16:11.487 --> 00:16:14.023
  • but not among his posterity
  • 00:16:14.023 --> 00:16:16.125
  • nor according to his dominionwith which he ruled;
  • 00:16:16.125 --> 00:16:18.761
  • for his kingdomshall be uprooted,
  • 00:16:18.761 --> 00:16:20.996
  • for others beside these."
  • 00:16:20.996 --> 00:16:23.899
  • What do we knowabout what happened?
  • 00:16:23.899 --> 00:16:25.934
  • When Alexander had arisen,that is, when he was at the peak
  • 00:16:25.934 --> 00:16:28.871
  • of his career, he died.
  • 00:16:28.871 --> 00:16:32.641
  • Thirty-three years of age,some people think
  • 00:16:32.641 --> 00:16:33.976
  • he was poisoned.
  • 00:16:33.976 --> 00:16:35.978
  • His only possible family memberswho could have picked up
  • 00:16:35.978 --> 00:16:38.480
  • his kingdom were,listen to this,
  • 00:16:38.480 --> 00:16:40.716
  • an illegitimate son, a brotherwith mental disability,
  • 00:16:40.716 --> 00:16:44.686
  • and the unborn childof his pregnant wife.
  • 00:16:44.686 --> 00:16:48.557
  • All of these peoplewere murdered within a matter
  • 00:16:48.557 --> 00:16:52.461
  • of just a few monthsafter his death,
  • 00:16:52.461 --> 00:16:55.431
  • leaving no posterity whatsoeverto Alexander.
  • 00:16:55.431 --> 00:17:00.302
  • Daniel tells us thatthis leader's great empire was,
  • 00:17:00.302 --> 00:17:02.938
  • "Broken up and divided towardthe four winds of heaven,"
  • 00:17:02.938 --> 00:17:06.542
  • verse 4.
  • 00:17:06.542 --> 00:17:08.477
  • And history confirmsthat prophecy, does it not?
  • 00:17:08.477 --> 00:17:11.447
  • Telling us that it was splitinto four parts,
  • 00:17:11.447 --> 00:17:13.949
  • each of them ruledby one of Alexander's generals.
  • 00:17:13.949 --> 00:17:20.122
  • After Ahasuerus and Alexander,the third king
  • 00:17:20.122 --> 00:17:23.292
  • whose name starts with an "A"is Antiochus the Great.
  • 00:17:23.292 --> 00:17:27.162
  • Daniel 11:10 introduces usto this king,
  • 00:17:27.162 --> 00:17:29.998
  • whose wars against Egyptwere marked first by defeats,
  • 00:17:29.998 --> 00:17:33.202
  • and then by victories.
  • 00:17:33.202 --> 00:17:36.305
  • The Romansfinally take control of Syria,
  • 00:17:36.305 --> 00:17:39.174
  • taxing the people heavilyfor causing so many problems.
  • 00:17:39.174 --> 00:17:42.878
  • To pay this tax,the king of Syria
  • 00:17:42.878 --> 00:17:45.447
  • sent a tax collector to plunderthe temple in Jerusalem.
  • 00:17:45.447 --> 00:17:49.051
  • Notice, again, how historyaffirmed Daniel's prophecy.
  • 00:17:49.051 --> 00:17:52.955
  • Daniel 11:20:"'There shall arise in his place
  • 00:17:52.955 --> 00:17:56.525
  • one who imposes taxeson the glorious kingdom;
  • 00:17:56.525 --> 00:17:59.828
  • but within a few dayshe shall be destroyed,
  • 00:17:59.828 --> 00:18:02.764
  • but not in anger or in battle.'"
  • 00:18:02.764 --> 00:18:04.833
  • And that's what happened.
  • 00:18:04.833 --> 00:18:07.769
  • And then we meetthe most wicked man
  • 00:18:07.769 --> 00:18:09.505
  • whose history is recordedin any book you will ever read.
  • 00:18:09.505 --> 00:18:12.508
  • His name is Antiochus Epiphanes.
  • 00:18:12.508 --> 00:18:15.177
  • Antiochus, literally,"The madman."
  • 00:18:15.177 --> 00:18:18.046
  • He was amongthe most wicked people
  • 00:18:18.046 --> 00:18:19.982
  • who ever walked on this earth.
  • 00:18:19.982 --> 00:18:21.783
  • I'm talkin', more than Stalin,more than Hitler,
  • 00:18:21.783 --> 00:18:24.186
  • anyone you can think of.
  • 00:18:24.186 --> 00:18:26.021
  • He had no claimto the Syrian throne,
  • 00:18:26.021 --> 00:18:28.223
  • but he decided he would tryto get his way into power
  • 00:18:28.223 --> 00:18:31.093
  • through bribes and gifts.
  • 00:18:31.093 --> 00:18:33.695
  • And he stirred upa battle against the South,
  • 00:18:33.695 --> 00:18:36.431
  • but he couldn't winon the battlefield.
  • 00:18:36.431 --> 00:18:38.033
  • So the two stalemated kingsagreed to a peace treaty.
  • 00:18:38.033 --> 00:18:41.537
  • Verse 27 of Daniel 11:"'Both these kings' heart
  • 00:18:41.537 --> 00:18:44.540
  • shall be bent on evil,and they shall speak lies
  • 00:18:44.540 --> 00:18:47.809
  • at the same table;but it shall not prosper.'"
  • 00:18:47.809 --> 00:18:50.512
  • Sounds likesome of our peace treaties,
  • 00:18:50.512 --> 00:18:52.047
  • doesn't it?
  • 00:18:52.047 --> 00:18:54.149
  • Soon, Antiochus vents his angeron Israel.
  • 00:18:54.149 --> 00:18:57.186
  • Now, watch carefully:"'Forces shall be mustered
  • 00:18:57.186 --> 00:18:59.922
  • by Antiochus,and they shall defile
  • 00:18:59.922 --> 00:19:03.025
  • the sanctuary fortress;'"that's Jerusalem,
  • 00:19:03.025 --> 00:19:06.195
  • "'and they shall take awaythe daily sacrifices,'"
  • 00:19:06.195 --> 00:19:08.797
  • remember, we studied that,"'and place the abomination
  • 00:19:08.797 --> 00:19:11.700
  • of desolation in the temple.'"
  • 00:19:11.700 --> 00:19:13.335
  • And this is what happened,men and women.
  • 00:19:13.335 --> 00:19:15.737
  • When Antiochus Epiphanesinvaded Jerusalem,
  • 00:19:15.737 --> 00:19:18.540
  • he erected and image of Zeusin the Jewish temple,
  • 00:19:18.540 --> 00:19:21.343
  • and he demanded that the Jewsworship that image.
  • 00:19:21.343 --> 00:19:24.546
  • He stoppedall the Jewish sacrifices.
  • 00:19:24.546 --> 00:19:26.682
  • He himself sacrificed a pigon the Jewish altar,
  • 00:19:26.682 --> 00:19:30.018
  • and the temple was desolateso that no Jew could go there
  • 00:19:30.018 --> 00:19:34.990
  • because Antiochus Epiphaneshad made it an abomination.
  • 00:19:34.990 --> 00:19:39.461
  • But do you rememberwhat happened?
  • 00:19:39.461 --> 00:19:42.531
  • Do you rememberthat there was one rebel
  • 00:19:42.531 --> 00:19:45.267
  • who stood up.
  • 00:19:45.267 --> 00:19:47.769
  • Listen to the prophecy,
  • 00:19:47.769 --> 00:19:49.771
  • verse 32:"'Those who do wickedly
  • 00:19:49.771 --> 00:19:52.341
  • against the covenanthe shall corrupt with flattery;
  • 00:19:52.341 --> 00:19:55.510
  • but the peoplewho know their God
  • 00:19:55.510 --> 00:19:58.914
  • shall be strong,and carry out great exploits.'"
  • 00:19:58.914 --> 00:20:03.652
  • And that was the Judas Maccabeusrevolt that ultimately ended up
  • 00:20:03.652 --> 00:20:08.323
  • in the way we celebrate Hanukah,if you remember.
  • 00:20:08.323 --> 00:20:12.928
  • And the apocryphal books tell usof this family of brave Jews
  • 00:20:12.928 --> 00:20:16.465
  • who led a revoltagainst Antiochus and finally
  • 00:20:16.465 --> 00:20:19.401
  • brought his reign to an end.
  • 00:20:19.401 --> 00:20:22.704
  • But there's one king left.
  • 00:20:22.704 --> 00:20:25.907
  • And he hasn't livedon the earth yet.
  • 00:20:25.907 --> 00:20:28.610
  • He's the final "A"in the list of five "As."
  • 00:20:28.610 --> 00:20:31.580
  • He's the Antichristwho is to come.
  • 00:20:31.580 --> 00:20:33.982
  • And here'swhat I want to say to you,
  • 00:20:33.982 --> 00:20:35.917
  • men and women.
  • 00:20:35.917 --> 00:20:37.552
  • If you can go back,starting with Ahasuerus,
  • 00:20:37.552 --> 00:20:41.123
  • and every prophecy that God madeconcerning him is true,
  • 00:20:41.123 --> 00:20:44.860
  • and Alexander, and Antiochus,and Antiochus Epiphanes,
  • 00:20:44.860 --> 00:20:48.730
  • all of them.
  • 00:20:48.730 --> 00:20:50.165
  • Trace them.
  • 00:20:50.165 --> 00:20:51.500
  • Here's the prophecy,here's the fulfillment.
  • 00:20:51.500 --> 00:20:54.936
  • All of them perfectly fulfilled.
  • 00:20:53.101 --> 00:20:57.739
  • Now we have one prophecythat is yet to be fulfilled.
  • 00:20:57.739 --> 00:21:00.876
  • What do you thinkwill be the outcome
  • 00:21:00.876 --> 00:21:03.345
  • of that prophecy?
  • 00:21:03.345 --> 00:21:05.480
  • It will be exactlyas God says it will be.
  • 00:21:05.480 --> 00:21:09.384
  • And I not only say thatbecause I believe it,
  • 00:21:09.384 --> 00:21:11.820
  • I can prove itfrom the Scripture.
  • 00:21:11.820 --> 00:21:14.089
  • God bats 100% whenever he makesa prophetic statement.
  • 00:21:14.089 --> 00:21:21.730
  • He doesn't miss any of 'em.
  • 00:21:21.730 --> 00:21:23.332
  • He doesn't come close.
  • 00:21:23.332 --> 00:21:24.666
  • He doesn't make almost.
  • 00:21:24.666 --> 00:21:26.001
  • He doesn't go beyond it,or in front of it.
  • 00:21:26.001 --> 00:21:28.337
  • What God saysis gonna happen, happens.
  • 00:21:28.337 --> 00:21:30.772
  • And he sends his prophecythrough his angel Gabriel.
  • 00:21:30.772 --> 00:21:34.576
  • And no wonderthe prince of Persia
  • 00:21:34.576 --> 00:21:37.746
  • didn't want that gospel messageto get through to Daniel.
  • 00:21:37.746 --> 00:21:41.183
  • Because it is one of the keysto believing in the living God,
  • 00:21:41.183 --> 00:21:45.420
  • that when he speaks,his Word is authoritative,
  • 00:21:45.420 --> 00:21:48.123
  • it's inerrant,and you can demonstrate it
  • 00:21:48.123 --> 00:21:50.158
  • by the prophetic truthsthat you find in the Scripture.
  • 00:21:50.158 --> 00:21:53.795
  • And the Bible says,"One day there's another ruler
  • 00:21:53.795 --> 00:21:55.731
  • coming on this earth.
  • 00:21:55.731 --> 00:21:57.733
  • His name is the Antichrist."
  • 00:21:57.733 --> 00:22:00.068
  • We don't know who he is.
  • 00:22:00.068 --> 00:22:01.403
  • But I want to remind youof something,
  • 00:22:01.403 --> 00:22:03.405
  • that he could be aliveeven today.
  • 00:22:03.405 --> 00:22:05.941
  • Because nothing is leftbefore the Rapture
  • 00:22:05.941 --> 00:22:08.643
  • that needs to happen.
  • 00:22:08.643 --> 00:22:10.011
  • And when the Rapture comes,the Antichrist will be revealed.
  • 00:22:10.011 --> 00:22:12.013
  • And he won't be revealedas a little boy,
  • 00:22:12.013 --> 00:22:14.549
  • he'll be revealed as a 30,40-year-old man.
  • 00:22:14.549 --> 00:22:17.619
  • So he could bein preparation somewhere
  • 00:22:17.619 --> 00:22:19.755
  • on the earth right now.
  • 00:22:19.755 --> 00:22:21.089
  • And if you gothrough the 11th chapter
  • 00:22:21.089 --> 00:22:23.291
  • of the book of Daniel,you will see
  • 00:22:23.291 --> 00:22:25.694
  • that while it doesn't tell youwho it is.
  • 00:22:25.694 --> 00:22:28.296
  • He's gonna do great damagein the tribulation period,
  • 00:22:28.296 --> 00:22:31.333
  • but then he will ultimatelybe defeated.
  • 00:22:31.333 --> 00:22:34.569
  • Now, I want to thank youfor you attention,
  • 00:22:34.569 --> 00:22:36.872
  • and hangin' in herewith me on this.
  • 00:22:36.872 --> 00:22:38.807
  • But let me just tell you,in one single chapter
  • 00:22:38.807 --> 00:22:41.309
  • of the Bible, we have coveredan entire era of history
  • 00:22:41.309 --> 00:22:45.213
  • that was accurately predictedin detail long before
  • 00:22:45.213 --> 00:22:49.317
  • it ever happened.
  • 00:22:49.317 --> 00:22:50.652
  • An unknown writer has said that,"The book of Daniel
  • 00:22:50.652 --> 00:22:53.121
  • is suited to be a battlegroundbetween faith and unbelief
  • 00:22:53.121 --> 00:22:57.159
  • because there is noneutral position you can find
  • 00:22:57.159 --> 00:23:00.228
  • between those two places."
  • 00:23:00.228 --> 00:23:02.264
  • If God said it and it happens,it's true.
  • 00:23:02.264 --> 00:23:07.102
  • Just as surely as God fulfilledevery prophecy in this Book
  • 00:23:07.102 --> 00:23:10.439
  • that we can trace,God is telling us the truth
  • 00:23:10.439 --> 00:23:13.475
  • when he says, "It is appointedunto man once to die,
  • 00:23:13.475 --> 00:23:18.246
  • and after that the judgment."
  • 00:23:18.246 --> 00:23:20.615
  • If you know Jesus Christ,you will never face judgment
  • 00:23:20.615 --> 00:23:23.452
  • for your sin.
  • 00:23:23.452 --> 00:23:24.786
  • Because when youput your trust in him,
  • 00:23:24.786 --> 00:23:26.188
  • you gain everything that he didwhen he died on the cross.
  • 00:23:26.188 --> 00:23:29.858
  • And all of your sin is judgedat the cross in Jesus Christ.
  • 00:23:29.858 --> 00:23:33.361
  • But if you don't receive him,you wills stand someday
  • 00:23:33.361 --> 00:23:36.331
  • before this Holy Godand he will say,
  • 00:23:36.331 --> 00:23:38.867
  • "I can't bring youinto my heaven,
  • 00:23:38.867 --> 00:23:40.802
  • because you did not dealwith the sin issue
  • 00:23:40.802 --> 00:23:43.738
  • in your life."
  • 00:23:43.738 --> 00:23:45.140
  • We don't have to payfor our sins, because God
  • 00:23:45.140 --> 00:23:47.709
  • sent his Son to do it.
  • 00:23:47.709 --> 00:23:49.478
  • What we have to dois believe that,
  • 00:23:49.478 --> 00:23:51.947
  • and accept it, and receive it,and we can become Christians.
  • 00:23:51.947 --> 00:23:56.084
  • And when we become Christians,now we're ready to meet God,
  • 00:23:56.084 --> 00:23:59.488
  • whenever that time might come.

  • and next-day delivery,the idea of waiting 3 weeks for
  • 00:25:32.380 --> 00:25:36.618
  • anything seems foreign to us.
  • 00:25:36.618 --> 00:25:39.721
  • Especially when we're askingfor help from God.
  • 00:25:39.721 --> 00:25:43.091
  • But Daniel gives usa master class
  • 00:25:43.091 --> 00:25:45.694
