IT’S NO WONDER Daniel was so distressed by the visions we discuss this week that he “lay sick for some days.”
Our study this week focuses on the vision of the coming of Alexander the Great and Antiochus Epiphanes, a precursor and type of the Antichrist, and the famous “seventy weeks” prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27 which includes the prophecy to the “abomination of desolation” (Daniel 9:27) used by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24:15-16, Mark 13:14, and Luke 21:20-21).
We discuss the meaning and timing of the seventy weeks, why it points to a pre-tribulation rapture, and possible interpretations of “the people of the prince who is to come.” (Yes, it’s Rome, but “Rome” had a much broader meaning throughout most of history than we think.)

Update: The 2019 SkyWatchTV Wars of the Gods Tour of Israel has added a special visit to Qumran, where the Dead Sea scrolls were discovered, where Jim Barfield of the Copper Scroll Project will show us some of the sites where some of the most important religious artifacts in history may be buried.
The tour flies from New York City to Tel Aviv Sunday, May 12, 2019, and returns Thursday, May 23. If you want to extend your trip a few days to join us in Jordan, you’d return Monday, May 27, 2019. For more information, log on to LipkinTours.com — but don’t wait!
