There’s a man in Daniel that seems to be the antichrist. Is it true or not that he is? Could it be said that he is only a sort? Watch his exercises in this last prescience of Daniel. In weighty print is the prescience. Following really occurred ever!
11:31a “and powers will be marshaled by him”
20,000 men under Antiochus’ general, Apollonius, are requested to annihilate Jerusalem. It is the Sabbath, so there will be no safeguard. 80,000 Jews are killed. 40,000 are taken prisoner. 40,000 more are taken for the slave market.
11:31b “and they [the forces] will debase the safe-haven stronghold” An extraordinary multitude of faithless Jewish tricksters accumulate to Antiochus (I Mac 1:21, II Mac 5:15) 11:31c “they will remove the day to day [Temple] penances”
Is this the satisfaction of Daniel 8:11? In any case, Daniel 12:11 ties in the removing of the everyday penance to the furthest limit, everything being equal. The secret unquestionably develops here. It seems to be this occasion will repeat, however we have What is the abomination of desolation the record of its going on here so we will know it when we see it later on.
11:31d “and place there the evil entity of destruction”
It’s not whenever Daniel first sees the evil entity. See 8:13, 9:27, 12:11. A detestation is something God despises. It is something that God can’t stand sitting in the sanctuary. He detests it such a lot of that judgment comes so seriously as to make ruined the land where it works out. Antiochus sets up, in the Temple of God, a raised area to Zeus Olympius, the agnostic god he venerates. Then he arranges that a pig – a horrifying presence to the genuine Jews-be forfeited under this evil entity.
Thus here we have “the evil entity of devastation discussed by Daniel the prophet,” the very thing Jesus discussed… Yet, pause! At the point when Jesus discussed it, he put it later on. Jesus lived numerous a long time after this episode. The Jews would live to see different detestations come to the sanctuary. Jesus said that when you witness it, be ready to run. Indeed, it occurred in A.D. 70, however very much like in B.C. 168, it was just a see of the genuine plague that makes forsaken.
For there is one thing more terrible than a misleading god, which is no god, being set in the sanctuary. Furthermore, that is a man who calls himself the Lord God, sitting in the Holy Place.
The congregation has seen such a man, likewise a see of the genuine article, for certain years. He refers to himself as “Ruler God the Pope” and “Pontifex Maximus” and “Sacred Father” and “Vicar”. He is none of these things. Yet, he says he is. Some accept he is subsequently antichrist. Be that as it may, one day a man will distinguish himself so intimately with Almighty God as to call down the rage of the genuine God on this planet at long last. The scene is portrayed by Paul and John. However, what really is going on this day in old history?
To start with, he enters the Temple. Eliminates all the blessed furniture that he has abandoned previously. He switches it over completely to an agnostic Hellenist place of worship. Commits it to Zeus, whose picture remains over the new raised area. He solemnizes the occasion by forfeiting there a pig.
