4. The Rising of Rome to the Birth of Christ

Daniel 11

By John Thiel, Daniel 11 Series, Study 4, mp3

Let us take a glance back at some scriptures that have pointed us into the understanding of Daniel 11. The things that God has inspired to be written were for a particular purpose.

Isaiah 45:17 [But] Israel shall be saved in the LORD with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.

This is God’s purpose. He has a purpose in orchestrating the events of the world – the political and spiritual events – and it is to come to the conclusion of a world without end. Read the rest of this entry

6. The Desolations of Michael the Prince

Daniel 11

By John Thiel, Daniel 11 Series, Study 6, mp3

Throughout the studies so far we have come to appreciate the activities of Michael our Prince.

Daniel 11:22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.

This is the description of Tiberius Caesar coming to his end. He was such a corrupt emperor, and in his efforts to sustain himself he was overpowered by his enemies, and he was finally stifled with a pillow in A.D. 37. In the year A.D. 31 Jesus was crucified. Read the rest of this entry

7. The Consummation

Daniel 11

By John Thiel, Daniel 11 Series, Study 7, mp3

The conclusion of the Daniel 11 prophecy is cited in the following scripture.

Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make [it] desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolator [margin].

We have been studying the activities of the desolators, and at the end of all the desolations that have happened we come to the consummation. “Even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolator.” God has an objective in His whole plan for this world and in the revelation of this prophecy; He is aiming to one end.

Who is the King of the North?

Islam_-_Ottoman_Empire

By John Thiel

The king that ruled the northern area was always the king of the north; and down the bottom, the king of south being Egypt was the territory being ruled by the king in that area. In the time before Christ it was Ptolemes and then it changed hands.  It became ruled by France at one stage, and then by the Mohammedans.  But the king of the north is the one that we particularly want to get abundantly clear. France is in verse Daniel 11:37-39:

Daniel 11:37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things. 39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge [and] increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.
