1During the first year that Darius the Mede was King, I stood up to support and protect him. 2Now I speak the truth to you: Three more Kings to to rule in Persia, and the fourth King will be much richer than all the other Kings of Persia before him.
( FOUR KINGS = CYRUS >>> DARIUS >>> CAMBYSES >>> XERXES )
He will use his riches to get power and turn everyone against the Kingdom of Greece. 3But then a very strong and powerful King will come who will rule with much power (ALEXANDER THE GREAT). He will do anything he wants. 4But just as he comes to power, his Kingdom will be broken up and scattered in all directions. It will not be divided among his descendants, and it will not be ruled in the same way, because that Kingdom will be pulled up and given to other people. ALEXANDER THE GREAT DIED AT 32 AND (HAVING NO OFFICIAL HEIR) HIS EMPIRE WAS DIVIDED BETWEEN 4 OTHER KINGS.
5Then a Southern King (IN EGYPT - PTOLEMY SOTER) will become strong, but then one of his Commanders (SELEUCUS) will defeat him and begin to rule, and he'll be very powerful. EGYPT WAS CONQUERED, SO THERE WERE NON-EGYPTIAN KINGS RULING OVER IT AT THIS TIME (NOT PHAROAHS).
6Then after a few years, the Southern King and that Commander will make an alliance. The daughter (BERENICE) of the Southern King will marry the Northern King. She will do this to bring peace, but she and the Southern King will not be strong enough. People will turn against her and the one who brought her to that country. And they will turn against her child and the one who helped her. (SHE WAS POISONED)
7But someone from her family (BERENICE’S BROTHER, PTOLEMY EUERGETES) will come to take the Southern King’s place. He will attack the armies of the Northern King. He will go into that King’s strong fort. He will fight and win (AND IN THE PROCESS AVENGES HIS SISTER BERENICE BY KILLING THE QUEEN OF THE NORTH, LAODICE). 8He will take their deities and their metal idols and their expensive things made from silver and gold, and take them away to Egypt. Then he will not bother the Northern King for a few years.
9Then the Northern King (SELEUCUS CALLINICUS) will attack the Southern Kingdom. But he will lose, and return to his own country. (LUCKY TO RETURN HOME ALIVE). 10The Northern King’s sons will prepare for war (SELEUCUS CALLINICUS, CERAUNUS AND ANTIOCHUS THE GREAT). They will get a large Army together. It will move through the land very quickly, like a powerful flood. That Army will fight all the way to the strong fort of the Southern King.
11Then the Southern King will become very angry and march out to fight against the Northern King. The Northern King will have a large Army, but he will lose the war. 12The Northern Army will be defeated, and those soldiers will be carried away. The Southern King (IN EGYPT) will be very proud, and he will kill thousands of soldiers from the Northern Army. But he will not continue to be successful (PTOLEMY SOUGHT TO LIVE A LIFE OF EASE AND LUXURY AND ALLOWED HIS EGYPTIAN MILITARY TO BECOME WEAK AND DISORGANISED).
13The Northern King will get another Army that will be larger than the first one. After several years he will attack. His Army will be ready for war. It will be very large and it will have many weapons.
14In those times many people will be against the Southern King. Some of your own people (IE. ISRAEL) who love to fight will rebel against the Southern King. They will not win, and will make this vision come true.
15Then the Northern King will come and build ramps against the walls and will capture a strong city (SIDON). The Southern Army will not have the power to fight back. Even the best soldiers from the Southern Army will not be strong enough to stop the Northern Army. 16The Northern King will do whatever he wants. No one will be able to stop him. He will gain power and control in the Splendid Land (ISRAEL), and he will have the power to destroy it.
17The Northern King will decide to use all his power to fight against the Southern King, and he will make an alliance with the Southern King. The King of the North (ANTIOCHUS III) will let one of his daughters (CLEOPATRA - A DIFFERENT ONE) marry the Southern King so that he can defeat the Southern King. But those plans will not succeed. His plans will not help him.
THE NORTH IS RULED BY THE ROYAL DYNASTY OF THE SELEUCUS FAMILY AND THE SOUTH (EGYPT) IS RULED BY THE ROYAL DYNASTY OF THE PTOLEMY FAMILY. SO MOST OF THE WARS AND BATTLES AND INTRIGUES WE READ ABOUT HERE TOOK PLACE BETWEEN THESE 2 RULING DYNASTIES.
18Then the Northern King will turn his attention to the countries along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. He will defeat many of those cities, but then a Commander will put an end to the pride and rebellion of that Northern King. That Commander will make the Northern King ashamed. (THE ROMAN LUCIUS ASIATICUS). 19After that happens, the Northern King will go back to the strong forts of his own country. But he will be weak and will fall. He will be finished.
20And after the Northern King, there will be a new ruler (SELEUCUS PHILOPATER) who imposes taxes on the adorned city of the rule (ISRAEL) so that he can live like a King. But after a few years, he will be destroyed, although he will not die in battle. (SELEUCUS PHILOPATER MYSTERIOUSLY DIED, AND ANCIENT RECORDS SAY HIS PRIME MINISTER HELIODORUS POISONED HIM).
21That ruler will be followed by the Vile King, a cruel and hated man, who will not have the honour of being from a King’s family (THE INFAMOUS ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANIES OF THE MACCABEAN ERA, WHOSE THRONE RIGHTLY BELONGED TO DEMETRIUS SOTER, THE SON OF SELEUCUS PHILOPATOR). He will become a ruler sneakily and peaceably through flattery (THE LITTLE GREEK HORN). He will attack the Kingdom when the people feel safe. 22He will defeat large and powerful armies and even defeat the Ruler of the Covenant (ISRAELITE RULER). 23Many nations will make agreements with that cruel and Vile King, but he will lie and trick them, gaining much power, but only a few people will actually support him.
24When the richest countries feel safe, that cruel and hated ruler will attack them, just at the right time and will be successful where his ancestors were not. He will take things from the countries he defeated, and he will give them to his followers. He will plan to defeat and destroy strong cities. He will be successful - but only for a short time.
25That Vile King will have a very large Army. He will use that Army to show his strength and courage and attack the Southern King. The Southern King will get a very large and powerful Army and go to war. But the people who are against him will make secret plans, and the Southern King will be defeated. 26People who were supposed to be good friends of the Southern King will try to destroy him. His Army will be defeated. Many of his soldiers will be killed in battle. 27Those two Kings will want to make trouble. They will sit around the table planning their lies, but it will not do either one of them any good because YAHUAH has set a time for their end to come. JUST LIKE PEACE SUMMITS TODAY (LIES)
28The Northern King will go back to his own country with much wealth. Then he will decide to do evil things against the Set-Apart Covenant. He will do the things he planned, and then go back to his own country.
29At the right time, the Northern King will attack the Southern King again. But this time he will not be successful as he was before. 30Ships from Cyprus will come and fight against the Northern King.
He will see those ships coming and be afraid. Then he will turn back and take out his rage on the set-apart Covenant (ISRAEL). He will turn back and help those who stopped following the set-apart Covenant. 31The Northern King will then send his Army to do terrible things to the Temple in Jerusalem. They will stop the people from offering the continual daily sacrifices, and will set up the abomination of desolation (that lays waste).
TAKEN FROM HISTORIC RECORD IN 1st MACCABEES 1 :
* ANTIOCHUS PILLAGED JERUSALEM AND SET IT ON FIRE,
* TOOK THE WOMEN AND CHILDREN CAPTIVE AND STOLE CATTLE,
* SHED INNOCENT BLOOD ALL ROUND THE TEMPLE AND DEFILED IT * HER FEASTS WERE TURNED INTO MOURNING,
* HER SABBATHS TURNED INTO A MOCKERY - GREATNESS TO GRIEF,
* THE KING THEN ISSUED A PROCLAMATION TO HIS WHOLE NATION
FORCING THEM TO ADOPT CUSTOMS FOREIGN TO THE COUNTRY,
BANNING BURNT OFFERINGS AND SACRIFICES,
* SACRIFICING PIGS AND UNCLEAN BEASTS,
* LEAVING THEIR SONS UNCIRCUMCISED,
* WHORING TO ALL KINDS OF IMPURITY AND ABOMINATION,
* FORGETTING THE LAW AND REVOKING ALL OBSERVANCES,
* FORCING ISRAEL INTO HIDING IN ANY POSSIBLE REFUGE PLACE, * TEMPLE RE-DEDICATED TO ZEUS OLYMPUS IN SET-APART PLACE,
* ALL BOOKS OF THE LAW WERE TORN UP AND BURNED,
* WOMEN WHO HAD CIRCUMCISED THEIR CHILDREN WERE KILLED, * THEIR BABIES HUNG ROUND THEIR NECKS . . .
YET THERE WERE MANY IN ISRAEL WHO STOOD FIRM AND FOUND THE COURAGE TO REFUSE UNCLEAN FOOD. THEY CHOSE DEATH RATHER THAN CONTAMINATION BY PROFANING THE SET-APART COVENANT, AND THEY WERE EXECUTED. IT WAS A TRULY DREADFUL RETRIBUTION THAT VISITED ISRAEL.
32The Northern King will use lies and smooth talking to trick those who quit following the set-apart Covenant, so they will sin even worse. But those who know YAHUAH and obey Him will be strong, and act accordingly. 33Then those who are wise will help the others understand what is happening. But even they will have to suffer persecution. Some of them will be killed with swords. Some of them will be burned or taken prisoner. Some of them will have their homes and things taken away. 34When those wise people are punished, they will receive some help, but many people who join them will be liars and hypocrites.
FELLOW JEWS WILL COME TO THEM, BEHAVING AS CONCERNED FRIENDS, AND TRY TO PERSUADE THEM THAT THEY JUST NEED TO `GO WITH THE FLOW' - JUST FOLLOW THE CROWD BECAUSE AFTER ALL - IF THE MAJORITY ARE DOING IT HOW CAN THEY BE WRONG?
35Some of the wise people will stumble and make mistakes. But the persecution must come so that they can be made stronger and purer until the time of the end, which will come at the right time ... THIS FOR TODAY!
THIS PROPHESY IS FOR BOTH FORMER AND LATTER DAYS NOW :
36The Northern King will do whatever he wants. He will brag about himself. He will praise himself and think that he is even better than a deity (“THE VOICE/VICAR OF GOD ON EARTH”). He will say things that no one has ever heard. He will say those things against the Alahim of Alahims. And he will be successful until all the evil things have happened, and what Yahuah has allowed to happen will happen.
37That Northern King will not care about the previous deities that his ancestors worshiped. He will not care about the desire of women (CELIBACY - HATRED OF MARRIAGE - OR EVEN YAHUSHA - THE ULTIMATE BRIDEGROOM). He will not care about any deity actually. Instead, he will praise himself and make himself more important than them all. 38The Northern King will worship power, and strength will be his Alahim. His ancestors didn’t even love power as he does. He will honour the deity of power with gold, silver, expensive jewels, and gifts.
39That Northern King will attack strong fortresses with the help of a new foreign deity (JESUS - THE ULTIMATE WITCHCRAFT). He will give much honour to the foreign rulers who join him. He will put many people under their rule. He will make the rulers pay him for the land they rule over.
40At the time of the end, the Southern King will fight a battle against the Northern King. The Northern King will attack him with chariots and soldiers on horses and many large ships. The Northern King will rush through the land like a flood (MODERN WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION) 41The Northern King will attack the Splendid Land (ONCE ISRAEL - NOW THE BRIDAL FELLOWSHIP). He will defeat many countries. But Edom, Moab, and the leaders of Ammon will be saved from him.
42The Northern King will show his power in many countries. Egypt will also learn how powerful he is. 43He will get treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt. The Libyans and Ethiopians will obey him. 44But that Northern King will hear news from the East and the North that will make him afraid and angry. So he will go to completely destroy many nations. 45He will set up his King’s tents between the sea and the beautiful set-apart mountain (ISRAEL/PALESTINE - THE CENTRE OF ALL THIS ACTIVITY). But finally, that evil King will die, and there will be no one to help him when his end comes.
EVERYONE IS LOOKING AT ISRAEL IN THE NATURAL - THINKING THAT THIS IS WHERE PROPHESIES WILL FIND THEIR FULFILMENT !!
IN THESE LAST DAYS, TAKING THE SCENE ON A WORLD-WIDE SCALE, GEOGRAPHICAL DIRECTIONS FOR FINAL EVENTS WOULD POSSIBLY BE SOMETHING LIKE THIS:
NORTH — RUSSIA
SOUTH — EGYPT, ARABIA, AFRICA, AUSTRALIA
EAST — JAPAN, CHINA, etc
WEST — BRITAIN, AMERICA etc
PALESTINE — THE MIDDLE EAST
WORLD KINGDOMS RISE AND FALL BUT THEIR TIMES AND SEASONS ARE GOVERNED AND CONTROLLED BY YAHUSHA, WHO SAID THAT THERE WILL BE WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS, NATION RISING AGAINST NATION AND REIGN AGAINST REIGN. SAVAGE DICTATORS LIKE ANTIOCHUS EPIPHANIES BECOME A TOTAL LAW TO THEMSELVES, FOR THE SPIRIT OF KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR TAKES HOLD OF THEM TO “KILL WHO THEY WOULD KILL AND KEEP ALIVE WHO THEY WOULD KEEP ALIVE”.
RELIGIOUS AND POLITICAL ABOMINATIONS LAY WASTE YAHUSHA’S SET-APART COVENANT, HIS NAME AND INSTRUCTIONS, WHICH IS EVIDENT IN THE EARTH TODAY. HOWEVER IN THE MIDST OF THE GREATEST APOSTASY AND REBELLION IN MANKIND, YAHUSHA ALWAYS PRESERVES FOR HIMSELF A TRUSTWORTHY PORTION, A REMNANT OF OBEDIENT FOLLOWERS WHO WILL ENDURE AND OVERCOME THE VILE BEHAVIOUR ... UNTIL THE END, WHERE THEY WILL FIND ETERNAL DELIVERANCE.
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT, JUST AS YAHUSHA THE TRUE MESSIAH CAMES FROM ABRAHAM, ISAAC, JACOB, ISRAEL, JUDAH AND DAVID, SO THE ANTI-MESSIAH MAY BE A JEW ALSO, COMING OUT OF ROME, OUT OF THE GREEK AND SYRIAN DIVISIONS. HE MAY EVEN COME OF THE TRIBE OF DAN, WHO WOULD BE A “SERPENT BY THE WAY, CAUSING THE RIDER TO FALL BACKWARDS, AS HE BITES THE HORSES HEELS” (GEN.49). THE JEWS WOULD NOT ACCEPT A MAN AS THEIR MESSIAH WHO WAS NOT OF JEWISH DESCENT! SO THE ANTI-MESSIAH WILL INDEED BE A COMPOSITE-HYBRID-MAN!
ALL THESE WARS CAN EASILY BE SEEN IN THE TIME OF THE GREEKS, THEN THE ROMANS, THEN UNDER THE LITTLE HORN OF PAPAL RULE (STARTING WITH CONSTANTINE) - WHICH HAS NOW EXTENDED TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH UNDER A GLOBAL GOVERNMENT AND UNITED RELIGIONS SCHEME, CULMINATING IN WHAT WE SEE IN TODAY’S GEO-POLITICAL CLIMATE OF WAR AND EVER-GROWING VIOLENCE (CHINA, RUSSIA, USA, PALESTINE etc) … UNTIL THE END!

"Look how you've fallen from the Heavens O' Lucifer son of the morning star. In the past, all the nations on earth bowed down before you, but now you have been cut down. 13You always told yourself, “I will ascend to the Heavens above and exalt my throne above the stars of Yahuah. I will sit on the set-apart mountain over the fellowship in the sides of the north. 14I will ascend to the highest altar above the tops of the clouds. I will be like Alahim the Most High.” 15But that did not happen! You were brought down to the deepest pit of destruction and death".
ANTI-MESSIAH EXALTS HIMSELF - HE IS SELF-DEIFIED ! PROUD BEHAVIOUR COMES BEFORE A FALL - BEING SELF-CENTERED AND ARROGANT! :
2 THESS 2:3 "Let no one deceive you by any means: for that day will not come, until there's been a massive falling away first, and that man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition - 4The one who opposes and exalts himself above all that is of Yahuah, or that is worshipped - he will even go into Yahusha's set-apart Temple and sit in the most set-apart place, declaring that he is Yahusha."
>> THIS IS THE TRUE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION <<
ANTI-MESSIAH SPEAKS GREAT THINGS AGAINST THE TRUE ALAHIM YAHUAH, SO THE WORLD MARVELS AND WONDERS AFTER HIS SPEAKING :
REV 13:4 "And they worshipped the dragon which gave power to the beast, and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him? 5And a mouth was gievn to him to speak great things and blasphemies, and power was given to him to continue 42 months. 6And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against Yahusha, to blaspheme His Name, His Tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven".
ANTI-MESSIAH IS AN ACCUSER OF THE BRIDE AND NEVER STOPS INSULTING THE SET-APART PEOPLE.
ANTI-MESSIAH EXALTS THE DEVIL AND WITCHCRAFT … THE “STRANGE ALAHIM (JESUS).”
SO WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO FINALLY STOP THE DEMONS FROM COMING THROUGH YOU - STOP THEM PARADING YOUR BODY AROUND TO DO THE DEVIL'S BIDDING? ... STOPPING YOU FROM SACRIFICING YOURSELF DAILY TO THE DESIRES OF YAHUSHA THROUGH YOUR BEHAVIOUR - AND INSTEAD - EXALTING HIS ABOMINATIONS!
WHO'S ENTHRONED ON YOUR HEART?
A VILE-DEVIL-ABOMINATION OR THE SHINING LIGHT OF YAHUSHA'S LOVE
