    Verse 8

    restored." This section has a both near and far prophetic fulfillment. It’s finds its type already fulfilled in the character of Antiochus Epiphanes. He was the wicked eighth king of the Syrian Dynasty 175-164 BC. Antiochus committed the Abomination of Desolation in the Jewish temple by sacrificing a pig to the Greek god, Orion in the Jewish temple. In a similar fashion, the Antichrist will commit an even more egregious act in the future Jewish temple in Jerusalem, proclaiming himself to be God. Antiochus’ blasphemous act launched the Maccabean revolt. Jesus, when answering his apostles’ questions regarding the last days said, “when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place…then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains” (Matthew 24:15). So was Daniel referring to the time of Antiochus or was he referring to the time of the Antichrist when he prophesied of the coming Desolation? The answer is, both. Clearly Antiochus was a type of the wicked man that will come in the last days. That time was a warm up act of another even greater time of persecution that will come upon the Jewish people by the Antichrist of this present time. Daniel also refers to the Abomination of Desolation in another chapter that is clearly a reference to these last days. With that in mind, it’s amazing just how many parallels there are in this account to Donald Trump. Verse nine makes another reference to a rather small horn.…

    As already stated, Antiochus is one of the clearest types of Antichrist in the Bible. The Abomination of Desolation he committed is clearly both an event that happened in the 2nd century B.C. as well as a future event that will happen half-way through the tribulation period of Daniel’s 70th week. Types in the Bible can be either events or people in the Old Testament that fulfil a type of its future anti-type. The historical type will share various qualities with its future anti-type. These…

    As already stated, Antiochus is one of the clearest types of The Antichrist in The Bible. The Abomination of Desolation that Antiochus committed is a “type” from the 2nd century B.C., that points forward to its future “anti-type” which shall be fulfilled half-way through The Tribulation Period — Daniel’s 70th week. Types are biblical characters (or events) that contain many characteristics of their future anti-types. These characteristics may be personal, behavioral, or experiential. Typology is…

    Three different silhouettes appeared out of the ship, all being vastly different in their size. The quintessential being dropped down in the crater, observing all three of them. They were rather inquisitive, never seen an abomination such as the Icer standing before them previously in their lives. "Who -- Nay, what are you?" One of them questioned, as the fallen prince circled around them, staring at each of their perks and faults. After all of his observations, one would know that the being…

    My dear Ophelia was a violet living among the bed of thorns. An image of innocence and purity in among the disease, death and deceit that runs rampant throughout the court of Denmark. For her to have downed among the weeping willows, no to have downed herself, to escape the woes that littered her mortal coil. Without a man to guide her no wonder she drifted astray, condemned to hell for the abomination of her death. Hamlet without a doubt would have set he on this damned path. His fruitless…

    Point #2 – The destruction of Jerusalem and the temple in A.D. 70 is a fulfilment of Christ’s prophecy of perilous times. In moving along, we turn our attention to verse 14 of the text. Verse 14 is a pivotal moment in Christ’s teaching to his disciples. In verses 4-13 Jesus has been telling his disciples to look for signs; however, those signs can be looked at as being vague and not specific. Furthermore, those signs would occur during a time period that would lead to the destruction. In verse…

    represent the four generals that Alexander the Great left the kingdom to after he died. The following verses reference the “Little Horn” as coming out of the four horns. The context has both a historical as well as an end-times prophetic anti-type application. Most premillennial commenters suggest that this Little Horn passage has a double fulfillment. There is a historical context fulfilled in the person of Antiochus Epiphanes who reigned over the Greek Empire in the second century B.C. He is…

    The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. 27 He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’[f] In the middle of the ‘seven’[g] he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple [h] he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.[i]”[j] Some bible scholars called this vision of the seventy-sevens one of the most controversial passages of the entire bible. The…
