Daniel 11:36-39 (BW34)
'Summary of the book of Daniel'
Northen king is the Antichrist
Dan 11:36 "Then the king (of the North) shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done."
The king of the North is definitely the end time Antichrist (mentioned in 2Thess 2;3-4) for he will exalt and magnify himself as God.
2Thess 2:3-4 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods
He is also the beast who will be the incarnate of Satan in Rev 13
Rev 13:4-6 "So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?" And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.
shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished
He will set up his 'One World Order' with authority over all nations and tribes. God will allow him to pour out his wrath on Christians for 42 months.
Rev 13:6-7 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.
Islam in the book of Daniel
Dan 11:37 "He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all."
No regard for God of his fathers
- Descendants of Abraham worship Yahweh, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, but Allah is not the God of Isaac nor Jacob.
No regard for the desires of women
- Women in Saudi Arabia (home of Islam) are treated as slaves and their desires of true love from their husbands and families are disregarded. A Muslim man can have 4 wives.
Dan 11:38 "But in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses; and a god which his fathers did not know he shall honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and pleasant things."
Honour a god of fortress
- At Mecca during Hajj, whenever the pilgrims walk round the black fortress (holding the Kaaba stone within) and bow down to it, it appears that they are worshipping the fortress.
Adorned with gold, silver, etc.
- The black cloth covering the fortress is embroidered with threads of gold and silver, and adorned with precious stones.
Dan 11:39 "Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain."
ISIS glorifies Allah in whatever they do and wherever they go by loudly proclaiming 'Allah is great.' The West also found out that Muslim immigrants will always glorify Allah even in their new adopted countries. To them Allah comes before their new countries.
From the above Scriptures, the Antichrist is definitely a Muslim
