The Approach of the Antichrist: Part 2

As in Daniel 8:3-26, this prophecy sweeps all the way from the history of spiritual conflict in Israel (11:2-25) to the Great Tribulation (Vv. 36-42) when Michael aids in fully delivering Israel (Dan. 12:1).  Daniel 11:2-35 unfolds the near fulfillment of the Persian kingdom and the reign of Greece through the evil despot leader who desecrates the temple in 167 B.C. Antiochus IV Epiphanes. Antiochus IV Epiphanes is a foreshadowing figure of the future Satanic man who rules the entire world during the Great Tribulation–Antichrist. The detail of this history in Daniel 11 is so minute and extremely accurate with details, confirmed by history, it reflects the majesty of God and trustworthiness of His Word.  Daniel 11:36-45 is the far fulfillment of God’s prophetic plan. It summarizes details of Daniel’s 70th week which are found nowhere else in Scripture.
