The Number of Days in Daniel

“The Statue”

 

The Old Testament book of Daniel fits like a hand in a glove within the New Testament book of Revelation. What was offered through the prophet Daniel 700 years before the writing of John in Revelation gives us a precursor to the revealing of the false prophet and the destruction he would bring upon the earth and upon its inhabitants. Though Daniel is rich in end-time prophecy, we will attempt to “hug the rail” and discuss only the statue, beasts, days, and verses which link them together. Though this is not a complete discussion of the chapters within Daniel, it is an application of the prophetic promises fulfilled as we recognize them and as they apply to current events.

What the reader will come to realize is that nearly everything prophesied in Daniel has revealed itself as the current-day nation of Islam.

There are many interpretations of the “statue” in Daniel chapter 2. As we will learn, the statue represents the kingdoms of the earth, after that of Egypt and Assyria, beginning with that of king Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon and ending with the kingdom of Islam. All are evil nations which are divided and ultimately fall. For the Americans in the crowd, you will be seemingly stiffed here. Although the United States plays a gigantic role in the last days, there is but merely a mention of them (us) in the Bible. The Bible is primarily about the lands and peoples (the whole world) surrounding Israel. Even Hitler’s Nazi Germany, which nearly exterminated the Jews, gets only its own chapter (39) in the book of Ezekiel.

Following is how the statue appears in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and interpreted by Daniel 2:

“The head of the statue was made of pure gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay.” – Daniel 2:32

We don’t have to rely upon speculation. Unlike Daniel who knew only of Babylon, the kingdom he lived through, we have the advantage to look back over history and fill in the prophetic blanks of the statue’s ores and metals. As is stated, the gold head of the statue represents Babylon. As the statue progresses downward, we are told of coming kingdoms. Notice that the head is singular, there is only one. As we go to the next stage, we see that the kingdom is divided by the arms but merges as did these two kingdoms. What began as one becomes two; the Medes and the Persians. They are that of the silver chest and arms.

Just as the Medes and Persians entered history as one and left as the other, so does Greece and Rome. They are the representative belly and thighs of bronze. Notice that the largest part of the statue is here. The Roman Empire and its characters obviously played a great part in biblical history.

What’s next is curious. It is the legs of iron. Now remember, the thighs – or the upper part of the legs – are bronze. What remains to be iron is only that which remains below the knees and above the feet. This is a relatively small area.

This is likely the representation of Abraham’s significant Root of David, the time of the growth in Christianity. In Psalm 2, we are told the Root of David, Jesus, will “rule with an iron scepter.” It is repeated again in Revelation 2:27.

Ask yourself this question: “What is meant by ‘Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron–for iron breaks and smashes everything–and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all others’?”

What breaks the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces? It is the rock that is the Christ Jesus.

History has dictated that the growth of Christianity was definitely unstoppable. But it splintered in the fourth century as the Roman emperor Constantine recognized its power. He adopted Christianity as the religion of Rome but he attempted to harness its growing power by instituting a man (or men) as its lead, and he established a form of governance to its hierarchy. He also had incorporated the “progressive” needs of his ungodly society.; those being the worship of Mary, idolization of she and the Christ via carvings and castings, men being called that of  “Father,” the transubstantiation of the Eucharist… This, 300 years after the Christ, is where Roman Catholicism was born. But that’s another subject all its own…

Now, here’s where it gets “fun.”

The feet of the statue are described to be partly iron. This is because they were partly of Abraham. The feet of the statue were partly baked clay. Where might you recognize baked clay? Is it in the form of a pot? Is it in the form of bricks? Or might it be upon the feet of a slave?

Is there any way that the feet could be of Abraham and pottery? Maybe they are of Abraham and a metaphorical brick? Or maybe they are the product of Abraham and a slave – those whose feet are similar to that of a beast of burden after a day of laboring.

What significant event can we relate to Abraham and a slave? Did he not follow the wishes of his wife (as did Adam) and turn from God’s promise and sleep with his wife’s maid-servant? Was not Ishmael the result of that “natural way” of procreation? And what of Ishmael? What was God’s promise to Abraham of Ishmael?

“And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great (large) nation. But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, who Sarah will bear to you by this time next year.”

Though the battle was set between the brothers born of Abraham 4,000 years ago, few could imagine that it would culminate by them exterminating one another. Yet, that is exactly how the stage is set. That is what we see in the Middle East as those who call themselves Muslim fight against one another and fight against those Christians and Jews who are called out by name in the Qur’an.

From the descendants of Ishmael; those of whom God said:

“He will be a wild donkey of a man, his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all of his brothers.” – Genesis 16:11-12

The irony cannot be dismissed here. It was the Christ Jesus who rode into Jerusalem not on a donkey, but on the colt of a donkey – a beast of burden. (Reference Matthew 21)

Now, time out!

Who are the descendants of Ishmael? They are the Arabs. And what has become of the majority of Arabs? They have followed the ways of Muhammad. But what is most important here is to understand that the beliefs of Muhammad are not that of Ishmael. And how do we know this?

Muhammad would rise to honor a foreign god, a god unknown to his fathers.

“He (Muhammad) will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his fathers…” – Daniel 11:37-38

Muhammad showed no regard to the gods of his fathers before him. As a matter of fact, according to the Qur’an, he denounced the gods of his fathers. Muhammad denies the God of Israel. He denies the Father, our God in heaven, and God’s Son – the Christ Jesus. Though he calls Jesus “Christ,” he does so in the reference that Jesus was a traveler and not the Messiah of the Jews.

“Jesus Christ is said to have been so called because he used to travel so much (by the Dictionary of Qur’an, and the commentary of Al-Tafsir al-Kabir), or because he was anointed with a pure blessed ointment with which the prophets are anointed… which shows that Jesus travelled in the East after his unfortunate experience (being his crucifixion!) at the hands of the Syrian Jews, and preached to the lost ten tribes of the Israelites who had settled in the East, in Afghanistan and Kashmir.” – Qur’an, 3:45b
.

So much for Muhammad and his Allah not being antichrist as per 1 John 2:22 because they refer to Jesus as the Christ!

Instead of honoring the beauty of women as those of God’s, Muhammad veiled them and counted them as half that of a man. The abuses of women in Islam are apparent and another subject entirely.

Muhammad called all the prophets (those of the Bible) before him “mistaken,” even the Christ Jesus. He elevated himself above them all and introduced a god not known before him. He introduced his version of an “Allah.”

This is the result of the child conceived in the “natural” way – that of infidelity. Ishmael was the bastard son of Abraham and Hagar. Muhammad was likely the bastard son of Aminah and an unknown father. We cannot help but point out that Barack Obama is likely the Islamic raised, bastard son of Frank Marshall Davis and Stanley Ann Dunham. From the very root of their lineage, God’s description of “natural way” has worked its way until the modern-day. The mold has been formed and the men which grow from its roots are linked. They are the vine…

The feet of the statue in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream are the two kingdoms of Islam which followed the Roman Empire. The first kingdom was wounded and appeared dead with the defeat of the Ottomans in WWI. There is no question that the wound has healed and that the current nation of Islam is blood-thirsty, nuclear, and menacing.

Is the description of Genesis 16:11-12 not ringing loudly in our ears now?

The “rock” cut out of the mountain of God which smashes these last kingdoms to pieces is, of course, the Christ Jesus. He has already overcome death and was raised from the dead. Jesus restrained Satan by overcoming death and imprisoned the devil as was promised. So too, has Jesus already overcome the false prophet and faces only the beast of his teaching, the body of Muslims and their Atheistic allies, and the Professor of Evil – that of the thousand-year-freed Satan.

“Daniel’s Dream of the Four Beasts”

Just as the statue in Daniel has had many interpretations, so has his description of the four beasts in chapter 7. But, like we’ve done with the statue, we’ll apply biblical knowledge with the unchangeable history which has past.

In Daniel 7, he has a dream in which he sees four distinct beasts. As we now know, these beasts begin as spirit which is thrown from heaven to earth and trapped. The spirit becomes flesh. And from the flesh, it becomes a movement of men. Before it’s all over, that movement became the largest theology on the planet consisting of; one man, led by one “god,” under one (fractured) religious rule and a new, changed set of times and laws.

This is, of course, Islam!

At times, we marvel at the Spirit of God and his step by step revelation of His perfect Word.

We know that THE Antichrist is described as the “beast out of the earth” – which has two “horns.” These horns are men, entities, or spirit. Our argument is that these two aspects of the Antichrist are that of the devil himself (he spoke like a dragon) – which is spirit, now wrapped in the name Allah, and the flesh of his prophet Muhammad. (See Revealing the Mystery of 666)

This is how the beast with two horns is like the lamb we’ve come to know as Jesus (Rev 13:11). Jesus was flesh and is Spirit. Jesus is also called the Lion. It is written:

“Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed.” – Revelation 5:5

We can’t stress enough how important it is to remember not only the Lion but that he is of the Root of David. The false prophet makes a reference to himself as that of the morning star and the Bible warns of his “god” as being like a lion but neither is from the Root of David, he who is of promise. Their link is to Ishmael and the natural way of conception.

The first beast encountered in Daniel is the lion. Knowing that the Lion described in Revelation 5 is Jesus and that Jesus is God, we can recognize that the beast in Daniel 7:4 presents himself as God but is called-out on his masquerade.

“The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a man, and the heart of a man was given to it.”

So, this creature was like (the same word used in Rev 13:1) a lion but was not. There was a time when it had wings and soared with God. But, after rebellion, those wings were clipped and this creature was thrown to the ground. Of course, this is the fallen angel – Satan. Trapped on earth, the spirit of Satan could work his lies of death and destruction only through the flesh of men. Not only do we stand upon two feet (most of us) but we all have had our hearts handed over to this creature. The proof of this is revealed by sin – which none of us are free from. We can only be forgiven of yielding to its influence over us.

Even more important is the single lettered word preceding “man.” That word is ‘a.’ The heart of ‘a’ man was given to it.

Though you already know where this is going, we’ll carry through in the manner in which it was given some 1,300 years before the emergence of this man.

This first beast is also the one referenced in Revelation 13:15. Most scholars typically mistake the first beast to be that of Rev 13:1-10. The first beast, which is like a lion, is the dragon. The dragon is the fallen angel. The fallen angel is Satan. And Satan was renamed Allah in the seventh century. He was so-named by a man of lawlessness, he who refused to abide by the laws of God and who created his own.

“And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh.” – Daniel 7:5

In Daniel’s dream, he saw a succession of images. Each one had particular meaning. There is nothing in the Bible that is added for color or to flavor the story. Daniel saw exactly what it was that God wanted him to see. And what Daniel saw was the metaphorical image of the false prophet Muhammad.

What would a man appear to be when metaphorically called a bear – other than a man who spent much of his life in a cave? Not only did Muhammad receive much of his miraculous signs and marks or revelations (called “ayahs”) in the moments that he meditated in a cave but he spent time in a cave with his “second,” Abu Bakr. These were in the days when he fled from Mecca to Medina. This was the time of change. This is when Muhammad changed the “set times” from the basis of the Christ Jesus – A.D. – to the time of the Hijra or “the flight” (in 622 A.D.) which he termed A.H. – (Reference Daniel 7:25)

In Islam, this was year 1.

Not only is Muhammad described as two with his second in a cave, but he spent that time in the presence of the evil influence of Allah and his spirit. (Qur’an 9:40a)

Knowing that these two look like bears in a cave, consider Elisha in 2 Kings 2:24: “He (Elisha) turned around, looked at them (jeering youths) and called down a curse on them in the name of the Lord. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.”

He, the Spirit of God, looked upon those who were mocking him and he called down the promised delusion described in 2 Thessalonians 2. Then, these two bears came out of hiding and began to tear away at the writings and books of all of the authors of the Bible; all forty-two of them.

Muhammad changed the set times and spoke out against the Father, the Son, and his Spirit. He began his reign of terror, not only on the merchants who traveled the trading routes between Egypt and Syria, but also upon those who belong to God – Christians and Jews. The changed laws of Muhammad’s “god” would begin to develop and be collected. They would become the modern-day sharia law.

When a bear is lifted onto one side, he stands upon two feet. This bear is a man.

What was in its mouth and between its teeth? He had clenched between his teeth the ribs of kings; three of them to be exact. These kings were not men but territories.

In the reign of Muhammad, during his life-time on earth, he and his men “subdued” or conquered three separate territories. As stated before, Muhammad began with the merchants he knew so well. He was an orphaned boy, sent to be raised by his paternal (likely in name only) grandfather and then his uncle. His uncle was a merchant by trade.

Muhammad began to “plunder” those he knew so well. He robbed and raided the merchants of the Mediterranean. Muhammad took from the merchants of Tarshish. His band of marauding thugs grew into an army which eventually flooded into the territory of Medina. Medina was known as Dedan after it was settled by the descendants of Noah.

The final days of Muhammad wrapped up by his sacking Mecca – the southern part of Arabia. The south of Arabia is also known to be the proverbial Sheba.

They sound familiar because they are the three territories that the little horn of Daniel 7:8, 24 “subdues.” This little horn had eyes and a mouth which spoke boastfully. Whereas, the three he subdued were the eye-less and mouth-less territories of those who had settled long before him. These territories sound familiar because they are the three settlements in which Gog and his Magog plunder and loot in Ezekiel 38:10-13. (See Revelation of Ezekiel 38 & 39)

Before the reader gets ahead of us, know that Gog and Magog are titles… they are not names. These titles are used in two other instances to describe evil leaders and their just-as-evil following armies.

What was the directive given to this evil man and his just-as-evil men? He was ordered to “ ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh!’ ”

Notice that the phrase is quoted as that of the speech of another. That is because Muhammad was literally directed by his “god” to rise up and take all the flesh of those he knew. Muhammad turned on his own people. He conquered Arabia. At the time, most were just merchants, farmers and ranchers or herders. He took their land. He took their possessions. He took their wives. He took their sons and daughters. The false prophet Muhammad and his men rose to power by killing fathers, husbands, brothers and sons. He never got his fill of flesh; not by way of murder – and not by way of sexual predation. The horrors of the “prophet” Muhammad are alive and menacing today in the actions and beliefs of his followers. Let it be known that the actions are that of a Muslim’s right hand and the beliefs are that of the marks on their foreheads. We further know that those marks are called “ayahs.” And ayahs are “miraculous signs and marks.” (As defined by the Holy Qur’an p. I-26)

We have covered only two of the four beasts in Daniel and the picture is already quite clear. But we can make it even sharper.

“After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.” – Daniel 7:6

This is the natural progression of Islam. What began with the devil’s spirit coming upon Muhammad, spread to the men he called companions. It was the second, Abu Bakr, the other man or bear in the cave, which would take the reins of Muhammad after he died.

At the time, all of Arabia was under the new Islamic control. It would spread like a leopard; with speed, stealth and a definite emphasis on lethality.

Muhammad died in 632 A.D. or 10 A.H. by his changed set times. It was his four gatherers, the carriers of the Qur’an which would assist in creating the speed and lethal means of Islam. These four carriers, its wings, were: Abu Darda, Mu’adh ibn Jabal, Zaid ibn Thabit and Abu Sa’id. These four carriers can be verified in the Qur’an, p. I-65 and through the hadith, Bukhari 66:8.

The perfection of God’s word does not end with the warning of these precise descriptions of the aspects of Islam. It should also be recognized that bees have four wings. And it is this swarm of bees that are described as surrounding and threatening Israel. (Isaiah 118:12)

Bees are also what came out of the dead carcass of a lion in Judges 14:8-9. This has great meaning but also leads down another path and another revelation. The explanation of that revelation will come soon.

We have all seen the speed and stealth of a bird as it flies. This is what the curse of Islam did during and after the days of Muhammad.

After the death of Muhammad, which came about by fever and not by human power (Dan 8:25), he was systematically replaced by the four patriarchs: Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman, and Ali. (A Manual of Hadith, chapter XXXI, The State, verse 10, p. 334, note 8.

These are the four heads of the beast which moved like a leopard.

Most importantly is that by the end of the patriarchic rule of Islam, it was a force that was growing, menacing, and definitely ruling. By its heavy hand, Islam had been given authority to rule. It was the waning days of the seventh century.

“After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast – terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.” – Daniel 7:7

Here comes the wrap!

After the first three beasts had faded away, Daniel sees the eventual beast. And he sees it at night – in the dark. Light comes only from the God of heaven. Though Muhammad and his “god” proclaim to be the (angels) of light (Qur’an 24:35) as warned of in 2 Corinthians 11:14, they bring about only darkness.

Is not Islam known for its terror? Terror is its main weapon. People fear; reading about Islam, talking about Islam, condemning Islam, and – since 9/11 – they definitely are concerned about sharing seats on a plane with those associated to Islam. Terrifying and frightening are those who believe and act in accordance with Islam. Can there be any greater evidence than that given by the attacks of 9/11, the subsequent wars, terror attacks, and advance of its curse in these modern days?

As far as its being powerful; it is stated in Revelation 13:4: “Who can make war against the beast?”

No need to look back on history here. We’re facing a new emergence of the Persians. It is evident that they are on the doorstep, a threshold we have argued that they have long crossed, of nuclear weaponry. They are allied with the new emergence of the Obama endorsed Arab Spring and the assembly-line seating of the Muslim Brotherhood into governing roles. With them are allied the Islamic states of Pakistan, India and the Atheistic states of Russia, China, and North Korea – all of them nuclear armed.

Now, again we’ll ask the question written by John in the book of Revelation – nearly 2,000 years ago: “Who can make war against the beast?”

The answer to this question is painfully obvious in the headlines of today’s newspapers and online news-feeds.

The large iron teeth which have already been used to crush and devour people and things are broad. It was the Islamic Mughals who first manufactured and utilized gunpowder. It was the Mughals who armored elephants and used them to overrun the enemy, their camps, and their towns. From the Mughal Empire, Islam spread like a flood and poured out its terrifying ways during the second millennium. That continued up to and through the Ottoman Empire – which was ultimately defeated in WWI.

Though most thought Islam to be mortally wounded by the Ottoman defeat, history proves that the Islamic empire would be healed and rise one last time.

The nation of Islam is different from the first three beasts in that they were spirit, man, and relatively small groups. The Islam of today is not only an entire nation but a body of people who fully cover three continents and partially occupy nearly all other countries (all but Japan).

Assuming all of the beasts other than the leopard have but a single head, the combination of these four beasts has seven heads and ten horns. The reader might want to compare this to the first few verses of Revelation 13. Revelation 13 was likely written by the Apostle John – 700 years after the book of Daniel was Scripted.

The entire body of Muhammad’s Islam follows the guidance of the image “set up” for their prophet and their god. They listen to the “poetic speech” of the “miraculous signs and marks” within the Qur’an. However, they are anything  but poetic. Within that little scroll (0nly 80,000 words compared to 800,000 in the Bible) are the orders to; murder, crucify, amputate, and/or imprison all who refuse to honor Allah, Muhammad and the Qur’an. Reference this to that of a “warning” in the Bible as per Revelation 13:15. (Reference The Beast Out of the Earth Is (Was) Muhammad)

Though the following is not of the statue, beasts or number of days within Daniel, the subsequent verses are relevant:

“In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of intrigue, will arise. He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does. He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people. He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.” – Daniel 8:23-25

This is obviously a reference to Muhammad and his maniacal, anti-Christian, anti-Jew behavior (See also Qur’an 5:51). But there is something else here. This verse speaks of the “latter part” of their reign; the latter part of Islam’s reign. Muhammad was not in the latter part, he was the founder, the creator of Islam. He was the stern-faced king alright. He grew very strong by the power of the dragon and his commands have caused astounding devastation over the last 1,400 years. He has and his have destroyed mighty men and God’s holy people. Muhammad caused his lies to prosper and grow while considering himself to be superior. And he took his stand against the Christ Jesus and his Father. And, by a fever, Muhammad was destroyed.

Muhammad fits all of the descriptions of this character. He fits all the characteristics of the false prophet and the man of lawlessness. That is, he fits all except one.

In the latter part of their reign… when the rebels of Islam (not just those who outwardly worship) have become complete liars, killers and terrorists; has another stern-faced “king” appeared? Have we again been duped by a master of intrigue, he who might very well have fabricated his entire life’s story and who has hid his illegitimate beginnings? Is it possible that he became very strong but not by his own power? Look to current events. Has he succeeded in whatever he’s done? And assuming all this has actually unfolded by the blessing of the masses (92% world-wide approval), might such a man have the power and ability to destroy mighty men and holy people?

The answer to these questions resides within other questions. Does the Commander in Chief of the United States of America have roots in Islam and does he have the ability to unleash the world’s nuclear arsenals?

His life’s lies may even cause him and those around him to prosper. With his incessant use of me, myself and I – you would think that he would certainly consider himself to be superior to all others. And his soothing words would lull people into thinking they were safe under his care and direction. But his lies and deceit were not just that of material gain and stardom. This stern-faced “king” has also taken a stance against the Prince of princes by claiming to be one of His followers – yet he wears the submissive prayer to another. It is likely by his deceit, that massive destruction will ensue and all will be destroyed.

Could the Script have been written in any more a perfect manner?

2,300 Evenings and Mornings

The common understanding of Daniel 8 is that it is limited only to the Medes, Persians, and Greeks. But troubling is the mystery of the 2,300 evenings and mornings of 8:14.

The book of Daniel is quite unique in that its measure of time involves many references to years, days, evenings, mornings, time, times and half of times. Most scholars accept the global belief that time, times and half a time amounts to 1,260 days. But that doesn’t fit the reference to 1,290 days and 1,335 days as spoken of in 12:11-12.

We think that we have a few answers; historical answers…

Chapter 8 discusses the three empires of the Medes, the Persians, and the Greeks. There are few arguments on this because verses 20-21 state just that. The Medes and the Persians are represented by the horns on the ram. The king of Greece, Alexander the Great, is he who comes from the west. He and his Empire are the “horn” of the goat.

Daniel watches as Alexander charges across the Middle East from west to east, conquering the Medes and then the Persians (reference 8:4, 7)

The two horns of the ram are significant. They are also different from one another. Although the Mede’s and the Persian’s empirical reigns overlapped, one of the horns – one of the empires – grew longer than the other and it “grew up later.” The significance of these three simple words means that one of these two kingdoms grew larger and far beyond the historical time referenced in this scene. The only one of the two empires to “grow later” is the current Islamic empire of Persia. However, the first empire of Persians – was not Islamic. The invented religion of Islam would not appear until nearly 1,000 years after the fall of the original Persian Empire.

Again, Persia is “special” in Biblical accounts. It is the only one of the “ten horns” occupied by the nation of Islam which was NOT named after a descendant of Noah (Reference Genesis 10). These names are listed in Ezekiel 38 as: Meshech, Tubal, PERSIA, Cush, Put, Gomer (Beth) Togarmah, Sheba, Dedan, and Tarshish. (See Ten Kings)

Persia is also the only one to be mentioned as “resisting Michael for twenty-one days.”

This verifies that Persia, as it occurs today, is the horn which grew up later. Remember this separation of the Persian kingdoms when we further discuss rebels in the “latter part of their reign.”

Daniel describes Alexander’s kingdom as being defeated and replaced by four other horns or entities. Most scholars get stuck trying to tie up and relate the kings who would immediately follow Alexander. But the horns that grew from this one broken horn grew up later. These horns are likely the four beasts of Daniel 7. These four horns were previously shown to be; Allah, Muhammad, Patriarchal Islam, and the nation(s) of Islam.

Just as Muhammad (the bear-like beast) was derived out of Satan (the lion-like beast); the additional horn described here is Muhammad who grew out of the “first beast” to become the second and create the path for the third and fourth beasts.

Like Daniel 7:8, Muhammad and his Islam are described as:

“…another horn, which started small but grew in power to the south and to the east and toward the Beautiful Land. It grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them. It set itself up to be as great as the Prince of the host; it took away the daily sacrifice from him, and the place of his sanctuary was brought low. Because of rebellion, the host of the saints and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything it did, and truth was thrown to the ground.” – Daniel 8:9-12

It was Muhammad who was the “other” horn which started small, on his own, but grew in power to the south “of Israel” (Tarshish, Dedan, and Sheba), to the east “of Israel” (home to the Medes and Persians), and to the Beautiful Land – Israel (Jerusalem), home of the Israelites.

Islam grew until it reached the host of heavens. This is a reference to Isaiah 14:12 – that verse which mocks the self-described Muhammad as the “morning star” (his self-imposed name in Qur’an 86) the “son of the dawn” (Allah’s self-imposed name in Qur’an 113). The starry host is the Most High and those raised in the first resurrection – the Trinity that is God and his blessed.

The illiterate Muhammad has set himself up in the Qur’an to be called the names already adopted by the Christ Jesus. Of these names are the “Morning Star,” as referenced by truth in Revelation 22:16 and by the liar in Qur’an chapter 86. Muhammad goes further as to call himself An-Noor, “Bright shining lamp” with his “god” as An-Nur, “The Light of the World.” (Reference Qur’an 24:35)

Those who know the God of heaven know that He is the light of the world, with the Lamb as its (his) lamp. We further recognize the fallen angel, Satan, is he who masquerades as an angel of light.

Within their own temple, built upon the ruins of the temple grounds in the Beautiful Land, are the “tents of Allah” (Dan 11:45). These “tents” are named the “Al-Aqsa mosque” and the “Dome of the Rock.” These are otherwise known as “the abomination which causes desolation.”

The “daily sacrifice” was removed three times: Initially, was the destruction of the first temple (built in the time of Solomon) in 586 B.C. by the Babylonians. Then, the Romans brought about the destruction of the rebuilt temple in 70 A.D. And last, was the vulgarity of the Muslims, who in 685 A.D. dedicated the Al-Aqsa mosque upon the ruins of God’s temples. In all three circumstances, the place of God’s sanctuary was brought low.

Because of the rebellion against the God of heaven, created by Muhammad’s Islam, the truth of the Christ Jesus and the temple grounds were given over to Muhammad, Allah and their body of Muslims. For nearly 1,400 years – Islam has grown. It has prospered in everything it has done (“prosper” meaning the advance of evil and lies) and the truth – that of the Father and the Son – has been thrown to the ground. And the ground is where the devil rules.

Now, what comes next is the historical tie which proves this argument.

“Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to him, ‘How long will it take for the vision to be fulfilled – the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that causes desolation, and the surrender of the sanctuary and of the host that will be trampled underfoot?’ He said to me, ‘It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.’” – Daniel 8:13-14

Daniel hears the voices of two from heaven speaking with one another. We have listed the abolishment of the daily sacrifice (temple destructions of 586 B.C. and 70 A.D.), and the rebellion as created by Muhammad, surrender of the sanctuary (to Islam in 685 A.D.)

Now, notice that the conversation between the holy one breaks off and one of the holy ones turns to Daniel and says: “It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.” This takes a slow, careful and thoughtful review. The holy one offers Daniel information that doesn’t necessarily answer the other holy one’s question. He is specific in his statement.

It takes information from the succeeding verses to understand the statement as was made to Daniel.

In the verses 15-26, following what has already been covered, Jesus – looks like a man – tells Gabriel (the other holy one) to explain the scenario to Daniel. And Gabriel tells Daniel, “…understand that the vision concerns the time of the end.”

From all that we’ve come to know, the time of the end is obviously sometime after the Christ Jesus. Most would recognize it only as the last seven years of men. This is the commonly accepted inference.

Gabriel, the representative angel, raises Daniel to his feet (a reference to resurrection maybe?) and begins to explain “the appointed time of the end.” Beginning with the transfer of power to the Greeks, these are the events which lend themselves to the four horns. Then he tells Daniel:

 

“In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of intrigue, will arise. He will become very strong, but not by his own power. He will cause astounding devastation and will succeed in whatever he does.

He will destroy the mighty men and the holy people.  He will cause deceit to prosper, and he will consider himself superior. When they feel secure, he will destroy many and take his stand against the Prince of princes. Yet he will be destroyed, but not by human power.

The vision of the evenings and mornings that has been given to you is true, but seal up the vision, for it concerns the distant future.” – Daniel 8:23-26

 

Now, we have been given all of the information we need to find this prophecy’s place in history.

First of all, we need to understand the meaning of “evenings and mornings.” We are given many measurements of time within the Bible. We are offered ‘years’ (360-day years), days of years (360-day years), weeks of years (7 times the number of years), months (30 days), days (either a day or 1,000 years in “God” days), and now – evenings and mornings.

Like a man and woman are married and merge together to create one flesh, evenings and mornings merge and are paired together to create one day. Assuming this accurate, 2,300 husbands and their wives or pairs create 1,250 new lives or new days. The reasoning behind the change in term is that these are seasonal years and not measured as 360 day-years. Everything God does, all that He has had written, has purpose.

Note: How many days are created by the marriage of an evening with another evening or morning with another morning? When men see this, when marriage is that of two men or two women, the days of men come to an end. For this generation of man, when darkness marries darkness and light marries light, this generation of man comes to an end.

So, we can be reasonably certain that we are working with a measurement of 1,150 cyclical or seasonal years as we know them – summer to summer and winter to winter.

We also know that this measurement somehow applies to the life and death of the stern-faced king, previously shown to be Muhammad.

Now, during the reign of the Persian kings, there were declarations made to rebuild the Jewish temple and to restore its people and traditions. The declaration to rebuild the temple was written and initially emanated from King Cyrus in 538 B.C. This declaration was realized under the rule of King Darius in 517 B.C. – 70 biblical (69 calendar) years after the destruction of the first temple in 586 B.C. Following these events, in 445 B.C., King Artaxerxes made the declaration to restore the Israelites into their land and to re-institute their traditional sacrifice upon the temple. (Ezra 7:11-27)

The seventy-year period is given to us in Jeremiah 25:11. They are the years in which Israel was prophesied to be under Babylonian rule. And we know that Babylon gave way to the Medes and the Persians.

Reconsecrated was the sanctuary of the Jewish temple in 517 B.C.

Some time later, Muhammad took on the Prince of princes, the Christ Jesus. The twenty-two year teachings of the prophet Muhammad flew in the face of God. “He opposed and exalted himself over everything that is (was) called God or is (was) worshipped.” (2The 2:4)

In the year 632 A.D., Muhammad lost his battle and was destroyed, but not by human power. Muhammad died by the results of a fever.

At that time, upon Jesus’ defeat of the false prophet, the Christ Jesus was reconsecrated as the “temple of God.” Jesus had now defeated Satan by his crucifixion and resurrection, had him imprisoned, and had also defeated the “prophet” who was raised to power by the spirit of Satan’s evil – which was still in the world. (Refer to 1 John 4:2-3)

The separation of these two dates is 517 B.C. to 632 A.D. (+/- 2 years) is 1,150 years.

The time spanned from reconsecration of the temple, to its destruction and the creation of rebellion, and finally to the reconsecration of the temple again was 1,150 years.

(Note: In any case where the measurement of time spans B.C. to A.D., +/- 2 years are allowed to accommodate for the month of the year in which the event took place and the recognition that there is no year 0)

Seventy ‘sevens’

The Seventy ‘sevens’ has not been hotly contested by scholars with one exception – that of the last ‘seven.’ Most Bible enthusiasts agree on the seven ‘sevens’ and the sixty-two ‘sevens.’ But the last ‘seven’ has proven to be elusive – until now.

This very compact part of Daniel is – like all before it – related to the end of times and the events which must take place. With it, the evidence against the current-day nation of Islam grows.

The angel Gabriel, once again, approaches Daniel and tells him:

 

“Seventy ‘sevens’ are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteous nous, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy.

Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’” – Daniel 9:24-25

 

We begin by understanding that Daniel refers to weeks as “weeks of years” or 7 times the number of ‘sevens.’ Though this is at first very confusing, it becomes clearer as the historical timeline is applied. By the time we are through here, it will be apparent that we are in the last throws as this generation of man.

The final decree to restore the Israelites along with their traditional sacrifices to Jerusalem came from the Persian king, Artaxerxes. Nehemiah 2:1 gives us the time of his reign as “the month of Nisan in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes; the year 445 B.C. Confirmation of the decree can be found in Ezra 7:11-27.

This final decree from the Persian kings was made after the temple had already been rebuilt. To be restored, as per Artexerxes, were the people, their traditions and their city.

To calculate the time between “issuing the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One” comes, we simply need to understand that seven ‘sevens’ are seven ‘weeks of years’ and that sixty-two ‘sevens’ are 62 ‘weeks of years.’ By calculating this, we come up with 49 and 434 years. Together, it would be 483 years (479 calendar years) from the decree until the Christ Jesus appeared.

As the math works out, the time given is 445 B.C. to 34 A.D. (+/- 2 years) – The time of the Christ.

This is not disputed. Most scholars agree on this time frame.

But, what comes next is shocking.

“It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood. War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.” – Daniel 9:25-27

“It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble.” This is verified through the writings of Nehemiah. Though 6:15 proclaims that the wall around the temple was completed in 52 days, the chapters leading up to that verse make it seem as though the span was much longer.

What will be rebuilt – the city of Jerusalem or the temple that is the Christ Jesus?

A trench divides. Jesus divides. (Mt 10:34, Lk 12:51) Streets offer a way around the Beautiful land and its city. Jesus offers a way around the holy city. As it is, it would appear that both are applicable.

After the 483 years had passed, Jesus was crucified and Satan was imprisoned.

That’s right…

After Jesus was “cut off” he was raised to life again, thereby defeating death. And what did the defeat of death (death being sin and sin being Satan) mean at the time of Christ’s rising? Was it the end of Satan? Was it the tossing of Satan into the lake of fire? Was it the conclusion of prophecy?

The answer to all of these questions is, “NO!”

The power of Christ’s promised resurrection, the rebuilding of his own self as the temple, was enough to imprison Satan. And he too was “cut off!” This changes everything about the timing as most scholars understand it in Revelation 20:7-10. This also leads to the argument that the first resurrection was at the time of the Christ and his resurrection.

As tempting as this tangent is to pursue, we’ll guide the reader to (The First Resurrection)

For now, we’ll continue on with the stunning order of things as given by God’s Word.

Jesus appeared to have nothing at the time of his crucifixion but the truth is that Satan had nothing – he lost! “The ‘people of the ruler who will come’ will destroy the city and the sanctuary.” Is it the Jews and Christians who destroy the city and the sanctuary in 70 A.D.? Is it the followers of the Christ who hang him from a tree?

NO!

The people of the “ruler who will come” are those who belong to the angel of the Abyss. Though their “ruler” had been imprisoned, he still has his spirit of evil here on earth. John wrote in Revelation 17:8 that, “The beast (the beasts of Dan 7:4-7 & Rev 13:1-18), which you saw, once was, now is not (imprisoned by the Christ), and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction.” (Reference 1 John 4:3, Rev 17:8)

The end came like a flood to those who occupied the city of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. and the end will come like a flood to those of ‘the great city’ in this day. And the great city is that of this generation of man. War has continued from the time of Daniel (and before) until now. Hearing of wars and rumors of wars, with the nation of Islam (divided) against itself and against the nations of the west; with the kingdom of Allah rising up against the kingdom of heaven – it’s apparent that war will continue until it all ends.

The desolations decreed have been developing since the false prophet Muhammad created Islam and its changed “set times and laws” as was directed by Satan, his Allah, in the seventh century.

As we’ll see in a few lines, the tents of Satan were “pitched between the seas (of men) at the beautiful holy mountain.” (Dan 11:45) It is there that the Al-Aqsa mosque was dedicated and the Dome of the Rock built to house Allah – he who proclaims himself to be God. This is the abomination that causes desolation. Combine those tents with the Qur’an, and desolations have been decreed; desolations have been carried out.

Now for the nail in the lid of the coffin of Islam…

He (Satan) will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ This has been done and is currently – directly affecting nearly two-billion people and indirectly affecting all the rest. These ‘seven’ are the seven thunders as are described in Revelation 10:3-4. The seven thunders are the seven verses in chapter 1 of the Qur’an. They are called the Oft-repeated verses and, according to the introduction of chapter 1, page 1 of the Qur’an – are to be recited thirty-two times a day by every Muslim. These, like all of the verses in the Qur’an, are declared to be “ayahs.” Ayahs are defined to be “…an apparent sign or mark and, in this sense, it comes to mean a miracle.” (Qur’an, Introduction, p. I-26)

Compare this defining phrase with the multiple warnings of 2 Thessalonians 2:9 and Revelation 13:13-14.

Wait! It gets worse…

“In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering.” In the middle of these seven thunders is this:

“Thee (Allah) do we serve and Thee (Allah) do we beseech for help.” – Qur’an 1:4

For every Muslim who has and every Muslim who does abide by this directive, they are condemned to perish. Those who serve and rely upon Allah, serve and rely upon Satan. He is the one, the fallen angel who stands on the seashore with his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land. (Rev 10:2 and Rev 13:1)

It is they who deny the sacrifice and offering of the Christ Jesus in favor of the liar. It is they who refuse the gift of ransom paid by the blood of Christ – giving life to those who will accept it. It is they who verify that he, Allah, puts an end to sacrifice and offering.

And it is nearly all the rest of the world who accepts the claim that Allah is merely “God” translated into Arabic. The delusion has become fully represented. Nearly everyone, even the elect, has been fooled.

And on a wing of the temple sits Allah… proclaiming himself to be God. (2The 2:4)

We have reached “The End.”

The King Who Exalts Himself

Though this section has no numbered mystery, it pertains to the false prophet and his “foreign” god. We would be remiss had we stepped over this very detailed account of history.

This part of Daniel 11 is the natural continuation of the transfer of evil powers as was described in verses 1-35 before it. Because the previous “battle of the kings” lasts from approximately 500 B.C. to present-time, we will address only that which has proven its power to be in affect presently. It begins with his installation of this liar in Daniel 11:21 and proceeds throughout history until the present day.

Now, the king

Unlike the Jews and the Christians who had been previously established, this emerging entity of flesh abides by no previous rules. He had no moral compass. And he abides by no previously established laws. This is the presentation of the “man of lawlessness.”

As does any king who opposes the laws and grace of God, this one did as he pleased. He was born to a widow.  The circumstances of his birth are mired in controversy. Though his mother’s name was known to be Amina, his father’s name is recorded to be Abdullah. However, there is much speculation that the birth of Muhammad came well after the death of his “father” which is written to be anywhere from six months to four years prior to the birth of Muhammad.

Yes, the king described in this portion of the Bible was the imminent and infamous, false prophet Muhammad!

Born without a father, his mother struggled to raise him. It has been argued that Muhammad was raised by his grandfather for the first two years of his life. But, there are other writings which state he was nursed by a foster-mother, Halimah bint Abi Dhuayb, and her husband in that time.

At six years-old, Muhammad’s mother died. Now, without any biological parents, he was given over to his grandfather. This lasted for only two years, when his grandfather died, and he was again given over; this time to his uncle – Abu Talib. For the next seventeen years or so, Muhammad would travel with his uncle and learn his trade. His uncle was a merchant. He travelled the very same routes as did all of the merchants at the time; between the Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. They were merchants of the Tarshish. (Reference Genesis 10:4)

He travelled with those of the trade and became a merchant. This was his life until the age of twenty-five, relatively late for the culture, when he married a widow.

Time-Out! – The birth circumstances and biological father of Muhammad are challenged. He was raised by a foster-parent and then by a grandparent. He then was left to become his own man under the mentoring of someone he called “uncle.” He then married a woman whose power and money had already been established.

Do we have to point it out?

The circumstances surrounding the birth of Barack Obama are hotly contested. By the relationship they held at the time of young Barack’s conception, it is not a stretch to think that the affair carried on by Frank Marshall Davis and Stanley Ann resulted in Davis being the biological father of Barack Obama.

Obama was born fatherless. Frank Davis was not the named father. As a matter of emerging knowledge, there was no father named or originally listed upon Barack’s birth certificate. Though born in Hawaii, the actual birth-father of Barack is just as scandalous as would have been a foreign birth.

At an early age, Barack’s mother, Stanley-Ann Dunham, married Lolo Soetoro and Barack became Barry Soetoro. Raised by a step-father in Muhammad’s now Islamic Indonesia, Barry was educated by Indonesian standards – including public schooling and studying (memorizing) the Qur’an.

By the time Barack was eleven, he was sent back to Hawaii to be raised by his grandparents and nurtured by his “uncle” Frank.

So, we have established the parallel lives of Barack Obama and the “prophet” Muhammad. Not only were their early years almost identical, but Barack was raised in the culture, beliefs, and actions of the religion founded by his “soul-mate,” the false prophet Muhammad. This might shed some light on the fact that Barack has worn a “wedding ring” since his days at Occidental. Engraved upon that ring is the Muslim prayer of submission to the Islamic “god” which says: “There is no god but Allah.”

In the words of Binyamin Netanyahu, “You can’t make this stuff up!”

Time Back In!

After establishing that Muhammad would do as he pleased and when he pleased to do it, we can look back over history and rely on current events to recognize that he has set himself up to be exalted and magnified above everything that was considered to be or called “God” in the Bible (or any other god for that matter).

This is one of the entries in the English version of the Qur’an as translated and narrated by Maulana Muhammad Ali: (The Holy Qur’an)

___

 

“The Bible speaks of many of the prophets of God as committing the most heinous sins; it speaks of Abraham as telling lies and casting away Hagar and her son; it speaks of Lot as committing incest with his own daughters; it speaks of Aaron as making a calf for worship and leading the Israelites to its worship; it speaks of David as committing adultery with Uriah’s wife; it speaks of Solomon as worshipping idols; but the Holy Qur’an accepts none of these statements, definitely rejects most of them and clears these prophets of the false charges against them. The unlearned (illiterate) Prophet of Arabia swept away the errors which were a blot on the face of prophethood.”

Qur’an, Maulana Muhammad Ali, I-38

___

By his own authority and the power of something much greater than he, Muhammad disregards the Spirited writings of the forty-two authors who penned the books of the Bible and calls them all in error.

This is where it becomes necessary to understand the relationship between the flesh and spirit; whether it is good or evil, truth or lies. Though Jesus was born of flesh, he was and is Spirit. Jesus is the Spirit of God. (See The two Witnesses)

In a like manner, Muhammad – born of flesh – became indwelled by the evil-spirit of he who was thrown to the earth.

With this understanding, we know that upon the deaths of Jesus and Muhammad, death had been defeated but did not perish. Jesus was crucified by men, yet raised to life – thereby defeating death. Muhammad died by fever, not by human power – not by the hands of men (Refer to Dan 8:25). And Muhammad cannot be raised by his “god.” For his god is Al-Mumit, “the Causer of Death.” Though he falsely proclaims to be the “Giver of Life,” he cannot perform. Like a mere man, Muhammad’s Allah has only the power to take away life.

Both Muhammad and his Allah are the source of “unheard-of things against the God of gods.” As a pair, or “two horns,” the flesh of Muhammad and the spirit of Allah have been successful in creating death, destruction, and terror over the last 1,400 years. There is no earthly resolve of this cancerous growth. Its main body is growing rapidly across Africa, Asia, and Europe with individual cells and smaller growths sprouting up all over the planet. The most dangerous to take root is the cell which has divided and multiplied within the Executive branch of the office of Commander in Chief of the United States of America. Islam and its terroristic origins will not be defeated but by the wrath of the God of heaven. What he has determined will come about – has come upon us.

Unlike the angels and Spirit which guided the prophets of the Bible, Muhammad’s visitor was evil. His visions were angry and violent as the so-called angel Gabriel grabbed him by the throat and nearly choked him to death. As Muhammad began to have revelations, he began to form the rules and regulations of the religion he would eventually be the founder of – Islam.

The “changed laws” warned of in Daniel 7:25 coincide with the changed “set times” as Muhammad fled from his pursuers in Mecca and raced to Medina. This was the year 622 A.D. (Anno Domini) or the Latin for “year of our Lord.” It was Muhammad, during this period in time, who changed the calendar from A.D. to A.H. or Anno Hijra – “the year of the flight.” Though most westerners have no idea that this Islamic calendar is still in place, today is 27 Dhu’l-Qa’dah, 1433.

Without going any further, it would be safe to say that at this point in the life of Muhammad, he had no regard or respect for the Christ Jesus or his Father in heaven. He found the circumstances of his life to be above that of the Savior and, therefore, above that of God himself. The world was about to change.

Muhammad knew not of the gods of his fathers. Muhammad knew not of his father.

As far as women, Muhammad married two girls in the same year that his first wife died. One of them was in her teens and his famous bride, A’isha, was claimed by him three years before he fled to Medina. In the second year of his calendar, he consummated that marriage. A’isha was nine years-old. At the time, A’isha was the equivalent of what we would recognize as a girl in the fourth grade. In the next ten years, Muhammad would add at least eight other “wives” to his harem. Those who would become his brides were those who were widowed in war – on his side and on that of his enemy’s.

Countless are the numbers of sex-slaves that Muhammad and his “companions” had. Within Qur’an 4:23-24 are the directives given by Muhammad to his followers which allowed them to take freely of those who they captured in battle. Killed at their hands were the fathers, husbands, brothers, and sons of those they captured and raped. When they were finished with these women and children, they were sold as slaves. Of special note is Muhammad’s proclamation for his own self in regard to marriage and its limitations. For him and him alone, there seems to be no limitations on marriage. Within the verse he delivered, that of 33:50, is the allowance for him to marry friends, relatives, prisoners, children… pretty much anyone he wanted to marry, he granted himself this liberty.

This is in stark contrast to the Christ Jesus who abides by the laws of his Father and promoted the marriage of a man and a woman. It was the Christ who changed the ways of the world by standing before a prostitute, caught in the act of adultery, and who was threatened to be stoned to death; as the law called for. By words only, Jesus made the Pharisees (and us) aware that only he who is blameless is eligible to inflict the condemnation of death upon another man. It was at this moment that Jesus drew a line in the sand and told us to drop our “righteous” stones against one another.

Now, ask yourself, which of these two would any woman prefer?

From the initial two-thousand year history of the Jews, we know the Father to be a God of Laws. From the last two-thousand years of history, we know the Son Jesus to be our God of Grace. What then is the god of Muhammad who cherry-picked and re-instituted some of the harshest laws of God while throwing grace to the ground? Would it be fair to call Muhammad’s Islam militaristic?

If your answer is, “No, that’s not fair,” consider the following Qur’an directive:

“The only punishment of those who wage war against Allah and his Messenger and strive to make mischief in the land (those who refuse to worship the Qur’an) is that they should be murdered, or crucified, or their hands and feet cut off on opposite sides, or they should be imprisoned. This shall be a disgrace for them in this world, and in the Hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement.” – Qur’an 5:33

So, we’ll ask again; knowing that the punishment of resisting the “prophet” Muhammad and the “god” he presented, or resisting the rules and regulations he laid down in the Qur’an, would result in death as is directed by him of his followers – is that not militaristic? Knowing that there is but a single answer “YES” – then the god of Muhammad is a god of fortresses.

The god, who was presented by Muhammad for the first time, was a god previously unknown to Muhammad’s father and unknown to their fathers before him. Muhammad’s god was new but not improved.

This new god, Muhammad honored with “righteous deeds.” In chapter 43 titled “Gold,” Muhammad speaks about honoring his new god with the deeds (counter to the teaching of the God of heaven) and summarily denying the Divinity of the Christ Jesus. It is this “gold” which honors Muhammad’s Allah.

(Note: From this point forward, unless specifically stated otherwise, “Allah” will be assumed to mean the proper name of Allah as presented by Muhammad)

Allah was honored by Muhammad with silver. Ordered by the illiterate Muhammad was a silver signet ring. Its primary purpose was to seal the letters which the prophet had scribed for the neighboring states. Upon the ring were three symbols which read: Muhammad-Rasul-Allah. The meaning is Muhammad-in the name of (Messenger)-Allah. (A Manual of Hadith, chapter XXIX, The Toilet, verse 8, note 6, p. 302)

These three symbols were also offered in one of the books of the Bible. As it turns out, the three Greek symbols which represent 600, 60, and 6 – also appear to be nearly identical to the three Arabic symbols which represent Muhammad-Allah-Messenger. (Revealing the Mystery of 666)

To this day, Allah is honored by a precious stone. However, the precious part is only an emotional description as the stone they have used is likely the same broken and burned stone which was destroyed with a house of Baal as described in the Bible:

“They brought the sacred stone out of the temple of Baal and burned it. They demolished the sacred stone of Baal and tore down the temple of Baal, and the people have used it as a latrine to this day.” – 2 Kings 10:26-27

The precious stone referred to in Islam is the “Black Stone” which is actually three separate pieces of a single stone which has been burned and broken. Even Muslims proclaim that the stone was once white but turned black by sin. As far as the house of Baal being used as a latrine, we cannot pass on the “coincidence” of the story as told about the prophet and his mosque.

“Abu Hurairah said, An Arab of the desert stood up and began urinating in the mosque.” – Bukhari 4:58

The Kaaba in Mecca, that big black box of a building, is that which holds the Black Stone, was in ruins when Muhammad conquered Mecca, and has been used as a latrine. It should be recalled that nothing written into the books of the Bible were added for the means of flavor only. Everything has a purpose. In this case, 2 Kings was written about 1,350 years before the Qur’an was gathered together and it tells us how that house of Baal (the Kaaba) is treated.

And here’s the kicker… Allah is honored by costly gifts. So costly are his gifts that lives depend upon it. Honored by chapter 8 of the Qur’an, Allah is showered by the flesh and souls of men. Muhammad called this chapter Voluntary Gifts. Voluntary gifts are the lives given and taken in the name of Allah. These are the lives of men and women given in battle as they take the lives of the enemies of Islam. This was no different 1,350 years ago than it is today. With suicide bombers, wars on two different continents, planes hijacked and flown into buildings, men jumping on tables at military installations and opening fire upon an unarmed crowd, storming Embassies and Consulates… it is now what it was then – terror and murder. These are the gifts sought after by the god of Muhammad. These are the gifts as are requested by the Al-Mumit, the “Causer of Death.”

Incidentally, these are likely the gifts exchanged by those who are the enemies of the two witnesses in Revelation 11:10. The gift offered by the Christ Jesus, the Father and the Spirit of God is that of life. The gift offered to and from the fallen angel is that only of death.

With the power of Satan, Muhammad attacked his own people, his own lands, the merchants he knew so well, and the cities and towns of Arabia. These are the people and places known as Sheba, Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish. (Reference Ezekiel 38:10-13)

Those who have acknowledged Muhammad and his Allah have been given the lands of North Africa, Asia, and parts of Europe. After being conquered by Islam’s patriarchic armies, the city of Cairo was founded in 969 A.D. and was dedicated as Al-Qahira, or “The Subduer.” Recognized as one of the “excellent names,” the Subduer is Allah just as is Al-Mumit, “The Causer of Death” or “The Destroyer.”

As was prophesied in or about 700 B.C. by the prophet Isaiah, the City of Destruction in Egypt became a reality just as the first millennium of the Christ Jesus came to a close. (Refer to Isaiah 19:18)

At the time of the end, Islam will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. What started out as a single man, spread to his companions, to small armies, to un-walled villages, towns, cities and then countries. From 610 A.D. and the first visions of Muhammad, to 622 A.D. and the change of the set times and that of Muhammad crouching in a cave with Abu Bakr, Islam grew its evil roots. Ten years later, Ezekiel 38:10-13 had been realized.

It was there, in Nineveh (Arabia) where Muhammad sat upon his camel – in front of 120,000 men and their families. This is infamously known as the Final Pilgrimage. By the time Muhammad finished speaking, those in the audience could not differentiate the translated word of Allah as that of God – from the newly named god of Muhammad – “Allah.” They could not tell their right hand (God) from their left hand (the foreign god). To this day, most in the world cannot tell nor do they seemingly wish to know the difference. This is the beginning of the great delusion of 2 Thessalonians 2. And it started with the revelation of Jonah 4:11.

After the death of Muhammad, Islam spread with the speed and stealth of a leopard. From Arabia, Islam flowed into Egypt and the current-day lands known as Jordan, Israel, Syria, Iraq and Iran. As we know, Egypt did not escape Satan’s hand. Islam has its grip upon the entire North Africa (Libyans or the land of Put) and East Africa (Nubians or the land of Cush). All the wealth of each country; its gold, silver, oil, and men all belong to the fallen angel. This is history…

What have become current events are the reports from the east, Iran, and the north, Syria. Satan’s armies, his seas, are roaring. The god of the Muslims is in a great rage. And when the god of Islam rages, people die and destruction is massive. This is not the end but the beginning of the end. There is no calming of the seas now.

The veil of Satan is being lifted.

Allah pitched his now authoritative tents between men and religions. Thirteen-hundred and twenty -five years ago, he had dedicated for himself the Al-Aqsa mosque and began construction on the Dome of the Rock. This is where the carcass of the first two Jewish temples lay. On top of those carcasses are the vultures. The year of dedication was 685 A.D. or the year 65 A.H.

Like every individual on the planet, the fallen angel has determined his own end. And his end is at hand.

The End Times

The time of tribulation…

The time of tribulation is that of much speculation and certainly that which most would define as a seven-year period. It is that period wherein the great prince and protector Michael rises

At that time… Michael rises. There are only nine in the Bible who rise from the dead: Elijah raised the son of the widow at Zarephath. Elisha resurrected the son of the Shunammite woman. A man was raised to life upon touching the bones of Elisha. Jesus gives life to the ruler’s dead daughter in Mt 9:25. Jesus resurrects the son of a widow at Nain. Jesus raised Lazarus. Jesus is resurrected. Tabitha is raised by Peter in Lydda, near Joppa. And Paul gave life to the man who fell three stories to his death.

There are two more that need to be mentioned. Paul was stoned in Lystra. Thought to be dead, he was surrounded by the disciples and he arose. Lastly, ‘many’ were raised to life after their tombs broke open upon the crucifixion of the Christ.

Now, which of those would be qualified as Michael? Who is it that would qualify time-wise and have the power to “deliver Daniel’s people?”

Michael is the Old Testament precursor of one named later. There were only two angels named in the Old Testament; Gabriel and Michael. Like Elijah was to Elisha, Gabriel is to Michael. And like Gabriel was to Michael, John was to the Christ Jesus. One prepares the way for the other. We’ll leave the conclusion of Michael’s identity to the reader. But whoever it is, he rises in lieu of descending.

The “time of distress” arguably happens at the time of Jesus’ crucifixion. What was the defining moment for the Jews? What was the lowest moment for those who knew the Christ? When could the “time of the end” begin to form?

For the sake of argument, we’re going to assume that this time began upon the crucifixion.

According to Daniel 12:1, what happens at that time? Read it over and over again. The Scripture does not say after that time or at the end of that time, but at that time.

“But at that time your people…” Whose people are Daniel’s? Are they his fellow Christians? Or are they his fellow Israelites, the Jews?

Daniel’s people are the Jews. At the time of distress, at the time of Jesus’ crucifixion, it was the Jews – those who were raised from their tombs – who were delivered. They were those of the first resurrection described in Revelation 20:4-6.

See The First Resurrection

From this, and the Scripture of Revelation 20:5, we know – with certainty – that there are two separate and distinct resurrection periods. The first came with the crucifixion and resurrection of the Christ Jesus (Michael). It was at this time that the tombs broke open and 7,000 (1Ki 19:18, Ro 10:4, Mt 27:52-53, 1The 4:16, Da 12:1-2), the remnant of Israel, were raised to appear to one another and go with Jesus to the “holy city,” the New Jerusalem. These were those who were “Blessed.” They served with our Christ in the first millennium.

The rest of the dead have been raised over the last thousand years. In accordance to 1 Thessalonians 4:17, we – those who read this now – we are the last.

The resurrection of the dead, which men have been waiting so long for, has been happening for 2,000 years! The balance of Daniel 12:2-3 remains unchanged. Those who do not bend a knee to Baal, Christians and God’s Chosen, will and have shined like the brightness of the heavens. The others… well, they are the others

Curious is the stand-alone phrase of Daniel 12:4 which states: “Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”

Looking exclusively to the Bible, where does the reference to knowledge first occur? It occurs in Genesis, chapter 3. It was the temptation of knowledge which was delivered by the serpent (Satan) to Eve by way of a piece of fruit. Not just any piece of fruit but an apple… In Latin, the word apple is malam and the word evil is malum. The knowledge offered to Eve was evil  (apple) itself.

Men have been oscillating from God (here) to evil (there) ever since Eve was deceived by the serpent. Nothing has changed.

Ignoring the warning of Genesis 2:17, the First Commandment, and Revelation 22:18-19 – men have pursued others gods, worshipped man-made traditions, and created falsehoods surrounding the Father, the Son and the Spirit of God.

You know some of them to be the Catechisms, the Book of Mormon, and the most vulgar of lies… the Qur’an. For instance, this is one of Muhammad’s lies:

 

“Supremely exalted then is Allah, the King, the Truth, And make not haste with the Qur’an before its revelation is made complete to thee, and say: My Lord, increase me in knowledge. Even today a spiritual transformation can be brought about by spreading knowledge of the Qur’an, which is the greatest spiritual force that the world has ever seen, and it is only on account of being ignorant of this great spiritual force that the world remains in darkness.

The prophet is here told that he should not make haste with regard to what was promised in the Qur’an. The process will be gradual and meanwhile he should pray for more and more knowledge, for it was through knowledge that this great transformation was to be brought about. In fact, we are here told that as knowledge of the Truth spreads in the world, a change will come about and opposition will come to an end. It is how the followers of the Qur’an say, Let there be light!” – Qur’an 20:114, 20:114a

 

Along with the pursuit of false gods with this “knowledge,” men have discovered and created the means of their own demise; the engineering and development of nuclear weapons.

It was the knowledge, its consumption and execution of the forbidden evil, which brought about death. And it is the knowledge and obedient observance of the forbidden evil of other gods which brings about the end of this generation of man.

It is at this juncture that the prophet Daniel wraps things up.

He stands with one of God’s holies discussing these final days as they look across the water to the other. What separate them are the men of this world. Together, Daniel and God’s angel stand here on this bank. Most interesting is the description in John 3:26. In that verse, John – “he who was the greatest ever born by women” – stands with the Christ Jesus. The other stands over there on the opposite bank. One of them said to the Spirit of God, “How long will it be before these astonishing things are fulfilled?” Jesus, he who is the Spirit of God (he who is God), he who is above us (above the waters of the river) lifted his right hand (the sheep) and his left hand (the goats) toward heaven. He raised them up. (Reference those to the right and left in Mt 25:33)

“It will be a time [Egyptian captivity], times [times of captivity by other empires] and half a time [that of the first resurrection and their “camp’s” brief captivity by the Nazis]. Widely accepted to be a three and a half year period by biblical scholars, this reference of time is about the beginning and end of the story of the Israeli Jews. It spans 2,000 years on either side of the Christ Jesus.

Note: Understood to be historically accurate but not quoted in this manner by the Christ, the statements made within the brackets [ ] are merely an observation of history and in no way is it represented as “adding to” or “taking away from” prophecy.

“When the power of the holy people has finally been broken, all these things will be completed.” (Daniel 12:7)

As we have reasonably argued, the power of the holy people, the curse of the law under the Jews, was broken by God’s grace, the crucifixion and resurrection of the Christ Jesus, and the salvation of a remnant of Jews through grace as verified by Paul in Romans 11:4-6. Not only was that the first half of the broken power of the holy people, but the latter half became one of the greatest historical facts of prophecy – fulfilled when Israel was actually re-gathered as a nation in 1948. After 4,000 years of persecution and being hunted, the Israelites not only survived the death and destruction of God’s nemesis (Adolph Hitler – the representative “Gog” of Ezekiel 39), but they actually triumphed by being re-gathered in their land according to God’s word. For the sake of argument, how furious must Satan be about this sign of the obvious superiority of God?

The answer is revealing itself in the current events within the Middle East – that which surrounds Israel. Satan is raging…

Twenty-six hundred years ago, the prophet Daniel knew only that which he was told at the time. He did not have the luxury of history to fill in the mystery. But we do…

These words have been sealed up for some 2,600 years; until now – the time of the end.

Many were purified, made spotless and refined – two millennium ago. But the wicked have continued to be wicked (as was stated would be). None of the wicked, none of those who oppose the Father and his Son, understand the fulfillment of the prophecies of God. But those who are wise enough to trust in Him, the God of heaven, will understand.

From the time that the daily sacrifice [The first Jewish temple] was abolished and the abomination that causes desolation [The Al-Aqsa mosque] was set up was 1,290 [Biblical] days [of years].

The years spanning the destruction of the first Jewish temple in 586 B.C. and the dedication of the Al-Aqsa mosque in 685 A.D. was [586 + 685 x (365/360) +/- 2 = 1,290] 1,290 days of years.

Note: Anytime a span of years is measured across the time of the Christ, there is a two year allowance we respect which accommodates for the unknown number of months within each year and the understanding that there is no year ‘0.’

But “Blessed is the one (literally ‘1’) who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.”

The “one” is that of God’s Chosen. They are the one.

The book of Daniel ends with: “As for you (understood to be received by Daniel), go your way (in the way of God) till the end.” Daniel doesn’t live until the days of the Christ and his resurrection. And Daniel doesn’t see the re-gathering of the Jews in 1948 – not as flesh.

Daniel will rest – in death.  And then, at the time of the end – which we have shown is the last 2,000 years – you (Daniel) will rise (from death) to receive your allotted inheritance. The “allotted inheritance” is God’s covenant with the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They receive eternal life.

So, what happened 1,335 Biblical years after setting up the abomination which causes desolation?

685 + [1335 x 360/365] +/- 1 = 2001

Was there some significant event related to Islam that we might recognize in the year 2001?

Other than the attacks of 9/11, I can’t think of a thing. Huh, how coincidental is that?

From the time spanning the events of the Christ Jesus defeating the false prophet Muhammad in 632 A.D. and the re-gathering of the Jews in 1948 was:

[(1948 – 632) x (365/360) +/- 1 = 1,335] 1,335 days of years

From the time spanning the events of the Christ Jesus defeating the false prophet Muhammad in 632 A.D. and the re-gathering of the Jews in 1948 by the Gregorian calendar was:

 632 + 1,335 +/- 1 = 1967

Is there any significant event or events which happened in 1948 and 1967?

Nothing more than the re-gathering of Israel and their return of the city Jerusalem!

 God is God and his Word is perfect!

“Remember this, fix it in mind, take it to heart, you rebels. Remember the former things, those of long ago;

I am God, and there is no other;

I am God, and there is none like me.

I make known the end from the beginning,

from ancient times, what is still to come.

I say: My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please.

From the east I summon a bird of prey;

from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose.

What I have said, that will I bring about;

what I have planned, that will I do.

Listen to me, you stubborn hearted,

you who are far from righteousness.

I am bringing my righteousness near, it is not far away;

and my salvation will not be delayed.

I will grant my salvation to Zion, my splendor to Israel” – Isaiah 46:8-13
