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 CONTINUE our study of the war of Gog and Magog. To reiterate, Gog will not be a Russian leader.
We explain why we should be looking at supernatural north, not a compass point. Ezekiel, like Isaiah, recognized that the great enemy of God would come from yarkete tsaphon, Mount Zaphon — the mountain on which the pagan neighbors of ancient Israel believed the palace of Baal was located.
