Here is what I think will happen using the possible timeline together with Daniel 11:21-45.
But before I begin,I have attached a thread that I started with another forum 3 years ago.
The rise and fall of Anti Christ,
Book of Daniel chapter 11 is a very interesting book.Not only it predicts the battles and conflict between the Syrian ( Antiochus ) dynasty and the Egyptian ( Ptolemy ) dynasty extended over hundreds of years,it also depicts the rise and fall of the AC.It was so detail that when angel Gabriel was sent by God to tell Daniel what is to come,he was stopped by the prince of Persia for 21 days.
The rise and fall of AC starts with verse 21.
Dan 11 :21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person,to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom:but he shall come in peaceably,and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.
After the rapture takes place,AC will reveal himself.He will come in peace and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.The ten horns which is spoken of in Dan 7 will give the power to him.I believe the ten horns will come from the western Europe.They will appoint AC as their regional head.Please notice the phrase " to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom ".It may mean that AC is different from the ten horns,he is not a political figure.He is not supposed to ascend to the presidency(EU).God will make all kings do according to His will so that His words will be fulfilled.
Dan 11:22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him,and shall be broken,yea,also the prince of the covenant.
Who are these armies which are overflown before the AC? I believe they are the Gog/Magog army.Who is the prince of the covenant? I believe he is Gog,the prince of Meshech and Tubal stated in Ezekiel 38.What is the covenant that the prince has? I believe it is the military alliance that Russia has with Persia,Cush and Put.What is going to happen to Gog?He shall also be brokrn like the rest of the armies.
Dan 11:23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully:for he shall come up,and shall become strong with a small people.
Seeing the destruction of the Islamic and the Russian army, AC shall quickly form a league ( a political and economical alliance ).I believe the alliance will consist most of the European countries (the western leg of the old Roman empire ) and the defeated countries in Eze 38 except Russia.We are seeing the beginning of the revival of the old Roman empire.
Dan 11:24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province,and he shall do that which his fathers have not done,nor his fathers' fathers,he shall scatter among them the prey,and spoil,and riches:yea,and he shall forecast his devices against the strong hold,even for a time.
Which place is the fattest places of the province? According to scripture,it is Israel,God's promised land.AC shall enter the Jewish land and confirm a covenant with many.He shall redivide the region,gives the land of Jordan to Israel,and settle the dispute. Israel shall become exceedingly great.This is in the early of tribulation.
25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army;and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army;but he shall not stand:for they shall forecast devices against him.
Who is the king of the south? And which are the countries that still stay intact after the Psalm 83 battle and the Eze 38 war? I believe they are the Saudia Arabia,Egypt and some small countries like Yeman,United emirates and Qatar.They will eventually battle with the king of the north,that is, AC entering into the tribulation.I believe their reason may have to do with their anger over the covenant that AC confirms with Israel and many.
Dan 11:26 Yea,they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him,and his army shall overflow and many shall fall down slain.
Who is "they" that feed of the portion of his meat?And what does the portion of his meat mean?The western world is importing millions of barrels of oil from Saudi and it's neighboring countries everyday.These western countries (they ) led by AC will overflow Saudi and Egypt one day after tribulation begins.
Dan 11:28 Then shall he return into his land with great riches;and his heart shall be against the holy covenant,and he shall do exploits,and return to his own land.
Why would the words " return to his land " being mentioned twice here? Is God talking about two different places here? Yes.After AC defeats the king of the south,first he shall return to Rome.And when his heart is against the holy covenant,he shall move his headquarter from Rome to Babylon. (Zechariah 5:5-11 ).
Has AC has all the countries that used to part of the old Roman empire under his control? Yes,but except one,that is ,Israel.
From verse 30-39,we know that AC will launch a sudden attack on Israel and set up the abomination of desolation.He shall magnify himself above all god.He shall also divide the land for gain.He shall subdivide the whole region (the old Roman empire ) into ten and appoints ten kings over them.( Rev 17:12 )By now,The old Roman empire has been revived.
And starting from verse 40,God gave Daniel a summary of what has been told and what is about to come.This is why we see the battle between the king of the south and the king of the north(AC) again.After all,it has been a long narration between the king of the north and the king of the south beginning with verse 1.
Dan 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land,and many countries shall be overflown:but these shall escape out of his hand,even Edom,and Moab,and the chief of the children of Ammon.
Which is the glorious land? It is Israel.How can Edom ,Moab( modern day Jordan) escape AC's hand? Because they have been ceased to become a country and has become part of Israel according to Jeremiah 48:42,49:1-2.
AC is going after Israel,not Jordan.
Dan 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries:and the land of Egypt shall not escape.
He will also go up against Egypt.
Dan 11:43 But he shall have power the treasures of gold and silver,and over all the precious things of Egypt:and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
The AC will ultimately control the world financial system.And the Put(Libyans) and Cush(Ethiopians) shall also at his steps.
Dan 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him:therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy,and utterly to make away many.
This is how AC will fall into his demise.The king of the east led by China and a regrouped Russian (north) will unite together to go up against the AC empire.The seventh seal is finally opened .Seven trumpets sound.I believe this is the world war three and nuclear weapon will be used.1/3 of the grass,trees,ocean and human will be either burnt or killed.Euphrates river will be dried up and paved the way for the king of the east. And the great city Babylon ,AC's headquarter will be destroyed.Will it be by nuclear fire? I think it is very likely.Rev 18:15 tells us that the merchants will stand far off in fear of her torment. It may be due to the fact that they are afraid of the nuclear radiation.
Dan 11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain;yet he shall come to his end,and none shall help him.
This passage tells us that after the city Babylon is destroyed,AC will move his palace to somewhere between the sea and the glorious mountain.Where will that place be?
I believe Ezekiel chapter 26 to 28 gives us a clue where that city is.These 3 chapters are the prophecy against Tyrus.It is quite interesting that God names AC according to where his headquarter is.God calls him the Babylonian or Assyrian king when AC moves his headquarter from Rome to Babylon. I believe God calls him Tyrus because he moves his palace from Babylon to the ancient city Tyre after the great city is destroyed.And we all know that the ancient city Tyre is located between the Mediterranean sea and the glorious mountain of Israel.
The city Tyre will be his final place.Knowing that his end is near,he shall redirect the armies that come up against him to the valley of Megiddo to do the battle with our Lord.By then ,we know who is going to win.
