It all begins with Daniel's prophecy of seventy weeks= Daniel 9:27
God is dealing with the Nation of Israel. 9:24, Israel is conquered by the Babylonian's in 445 B.C . Israel had abandoned God and worshiped the God's and religions of other people. (prophecy fulfilled)
7 weeks equals 49 years, 9:25The Jews stated let Jesus blood be upon us and our children. Matthew 27:24,25. This is why Jesus asked God to forgive them for they know not what they do. Luke 21:24 They shall be led away captive into all nations.
For 490 years the Jews will now go through persecution. Daniel 9:24-27, We have seen the Jews persecuted over and over again. The Holocaust, displaced, and hated all over the world. This is the 77's mentioned. (prophecy fulfilled)
Next Jerusalem wall rebuilt, 9:26 (prophecy fulfilled)
It is now 62 weeks or 434 years until the Messiah comes.(prophecy fulfilled)
After this there is the triumphal entry of the Messiah. The prophecy: Zechariah 9:9 Your king comes riding on a donkey, He brings salvation. Mark 11:7-10, They lay palm branches down as Jesus rides the donkey, and they cried out Hosanna! blessed is He who come in the name of our Lord. (prophecy fulfilled)
Next the Messiah cut off; Jesus crucified. The Jews rejected Jesus and now the Gentiles time has begun.This is noted by Jesus as the Times of the Gentiles. (Luke 21:44) (Daniel chapters 2 and 7)(prophecy fulfilled)
The Gentiles have controlled Jerusalem up until the Six Day War in 1967. The city then fell into Jewish hands for the first time in 2,553 years. At this time is the countdown for the Messiah's Millennial rule.
Babylon is the Lion prophesied, Medo-Persia, the Bear, Greece the Leopard, Rome past, present and future, the non descript Beast. (most already fulfilled some still in progress as we speak)
After the resurrection of Christ came the day of Pentecost. Acts 2:7, Hebrews 1:2, 1 Peter 1:20, Joel 2:28-32 (prophecy fulfilled)
Next the Jews dispersed all over the world into other nations. The dry bones: Deuteronomy 28:65-68, Luke 21:21:20 and 23:34, Ezekiel 37. (prophecy fulfilled)
This is the Church Age, and we are in it. Acts:chapter 2, Revelation 4:1, Matthew 16:8, Ephesians 3:6, 1 Corinthians 3:27,28
Next the Rapture of the Church: 1 Thessalonians 4:4-18 (soon to be fulfilled)
Then the Great Tribulation Period: 1 week or 7 years, Daniel 9:27, The Abomination of Desolation Matthew: 24:15, Jacob's Trouble: Jeremiah 30:7, Matthew 24:21, The revived Roman Empire or Ten Toes. (not fully fulfilled)
The ten toes are in progress, known as the European Union, this is know as the Ten Nation Confederacy. Belgium, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain And United Kingdom. (prophecy fulfilled)
The Little Horn: The Antichrist, Son of Perdition, Daniel 7:8, His Mark 666. Reference; 1 Thessalonians 2:3-8, Revelation Chapter 13, He will be the last ruler in the times of the gentiles. Daniel 11:36-45 He will rule a time=1 year, times= 2 years, and half a time= one half a year= for a total of 3 1/2 years, or 42 months. He will sit in the temple of God, stating he is God. He is a man rising up out of the worlds people, wise in politics, charismatic. As most people do not investigate a political leaders background, usually making a decision because of party or charisma, not facts. This guy will have no problem.
He stops worship of all religions and the worlds people are to only worship him. The Jews will never accept this, for it is commanded to not worship any other God than Jehovah. (still to come) For the atheist and the agnostic this may sound great, but for the first time in there lives they will worship the Antichrist or die.
He will now pursue the Jews, destroying them and all they own. So they flee. They have a hiding place of safety. Many think this to be Petra. This is such a hard time all would die without the Lords help. The days shortened; Matthew 24:15-22, Flee to the mountains. (still to come)
It appears this Antichrist will be assassinated. And he will be reincarnated somehow. Satan then takes full control of his body and all the people believe he rose from death. They think he is God. Now the the mark of the beast comes, the 666 on the forehead or hand. No one can buy or sell without it. If one does not have his mark 666 they will be hunted down and beheaded. There is also a false prophet or minister (wonder what charismatic world minister this will be)commanding worship of the Antichrist. Reference; Revelation chapter 13 (still to come)
If one does takes this mark of 666 they are doomed to hell. Reference; Revelation 14:9-11
When the Antichrist or Satan at this time sits in the temple blaspheming God, and the martyrs of God are complete, God says enough!
Daniel 7:9,10 The Ancient of Days intervenes and completely destroys the Antichrist's armies, Casts the Antichrist and false prophet cast into hell.
