UNDERSTANDING THE RISE OF THE ANTICHRIST

This is a study from the Book of Daniel 11:21-31 with Dalton Thomas of FAI and Marantha Bible Studies. In large part, the study is about the entry of the Antichrist onto the world scene. As well, Dalton gives us a lot of valuable information from Revelation 13 about the Antichrist. Be blessed, it will prepare you for the end times so you will be ready for Jesus’ return.

THE RAM OF DANIEL 8 IS PUSHING WEST, NORTH AND SOUTH

One day after the United Nations Security Council voted in favor of lifting the arms embargo on Iran, the ruling mullahs unveiled a ballistic missile that reportedly can reach the United States.

Iran: ‘American soil is now within the range of Iranian bombs’

The headline of a report by Iran’s state-controlled Afkar News read in Farsi, “American Soil Is Now Within the Range of Iranian Bombs.” The report boasted about the damage that the Iranian regime could inflict on the U.S. By sending a military satellite into space, Iran now has shown that it can target all American territory; the Iranian parliament had previously warned [the U.S.] that an electromagnetic nuclear attack on the United States would likely kill 90 percent of Americans. The same type of ballistic missile technology used to launch the satellite could carry nuclear, chemical or even biological weapons to wipe Israel off the map, hit US bases and allies in the region and US facilities, and target NATO even in the far west of Europe.

For Iran’s ruling mullahs, compromises and appeasement means weakness. The more the international community gives the mullahs, the more the regime apparently feels empowered to pursue its malign behavior.

Iran is, according to the U.S. Department of State, “the world’s worst state sponsor of terrorism.”

End Times Biblical prophecy in Daniel 8 tells us that one of the major wars in the last days before the Antichrist appears on the world stage will be Iran (Ram of Daniel 8) will push west, north and south and this we see happening right now.

“I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; and no beasts could stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and magnified himself.” Daniel 8:4

Daniel 8 – Iran (Ram) pushing west, north and south.

 IRAQ: When the post-Saddam Iraq held the country’s first free elections in 2005, Shia parties, most of which had had long-standing relations with Iran, rose to power. Ever since, Iran’s influence in Iraq has only grown — first as a counter-force to the American occupation and then as a security provider to the Iraqi government.

LEBANON & SYRIA: Iran funded Hezbollah controls Lebanon and the deployment of Hezbollah foot-soldiers in Syria is ominous.

ISRAEL: Increasing attacks by the Iranian-funded Hamas into southern Israel.

YEMEN: Iran controlled Houthi are even launching rockets at civilian targets,

With billions of dollars of revenue pouring into the pockets of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), they are becoming more empowered and emboldened to pursue their revolutionary ideals of anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism and to become the leader of the Muslim nations in the Middle East.

Iran’s dominance in the Middle East will be short lived. Daniel 8 tells us what comes next. I will reveal that in a future post or better still you can go to Daniel 8 and check it out for yourself.

LAWLESSNESS WILL INCREASE IN THE “LAST DAYS”

Over 100 prominent evangelical leaders who attended the fourth night of the Republican National Convention where President Trump accepted the party’s nomination for a second term were met with fiery threats from rioters while leaving the White House grounds, and even attendees — including older adults and those with disabilities that were also reportedly attacked as well.

Jesus told us that in the last days before His return to earth to rule and reign with a rod of iron. “ because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12

Freedom advocate and founder of the KAIROS Company who also attended the speech told The Christian Post that he experienced the riots firsthand. “Violent provocateurs waited for us (and others) outside the White House gates in the city’s jurisdiction, at nearly midnight,” Moore recalled.

“Rather than succeeding at intimidating us with their vicious threats of violence, expletives, blasphemous slogans, hatred, and intolerance they simply proved the very points the president made in his speech. I saw it with my own eyes and heard it with my own ears. What’s awful is that the very thing this does is take away the voice of peaceful protesters, whom we want to hear.”
