Daniel 12:5-7 - Wrath of Satan (BW43)
'Summary of the book of Daniel'
Dan 12:5-7 Then I, Daniel, looked; and there stood two others, one on this riverbank and the other on that riverbank. And one said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, "How long shall the fulfillment of these wonders be?" Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever, that it shall be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has been completely shattered, all these things shall be finished.
God will allow Christians (holy people) to be completely under the power of the Antichrist for three and a half years before Rapture (all these things shall finished). They will be persecuted, imprisoned, killed and martyred so that their victories over the deceptions of the Antichrist will justify their great heavenly rewards. They will be given white robes (or white line robes) so that they will not be found naked.
Dan 11:33-35 "And those of the people who understand shall instruct many; yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plundering. Now when they fall, they shall be aided with a little help; but many shall join with them by intrigue. And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time.
Nourishment by God
Rev 13:5-7 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. 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.
This will be the same period of the Wrath of Satan, where Christians will be persecuted, killed and martyred for a period of 42 months or three and a half years. However, during these 42 months, God will protect and nourish His people (possibly without the mark of the beast '666').
Rev 12:6, 13-14 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.... Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
The Period of the Wrath of Satan is also the 5th Seal and the Period of Sorrows or Tribulations (Mat 24:9-26) and ends at Rapture.
Period of Sorrows or Tribulations
Mat 24:9 "Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name's sake."
Christians who oppose the 'One World Religion', which denies the divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, will be martyred but the Holy Spirit will use their physical bodies to preach the everlasting gospel.
Mat 24:14 "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come."
Brethren, the Great Tribulation will begin at the dedication of the temple of God when the Antichrist will reveal himself seated on the mercy seat in the Most Holy Place (Mat 24:15-26)
