A Different Beast
A common beast with Daniel and John. The “ten horns” ties them together. Sebeos may have been the first to recognize Islam as the fourth beast of Daniel. Much later the ten dynasties of Islam would be identified by Islamic historians. The Ottoman Empire, the tenth dynasty of Islam ended a thousand year Christian empire. The Byzantine Empire. –
A Translation Not Inspired
A problem with interpretation. 50 different English translations all agree on “one of his” but the next word could be princes, commanders, officers, officials, generals, leaders, principalities, or subordinates. A prince is a family member but the rest are not. A problem if you are looking for the king of the north. You have to love BibleGateway. It is inspired.
A Desolation of the Temple
A beast in the making. What makes a beast a beast? The temple. Don’t mess with the temple. Historians will remember that. Babylon destroyed the first temple. Greece desecrated the second. Rome destroyed the second. Islam is preventing the third. The Dome of the Rock is the abomination of desolation. It stands in the holy place.
A king of the north, a fit with history. Mohammed, the king of the south, and his daughter, Fatimah, along with Muawiyah, the king of the north are a perfect fit with Daniel 11. The abomination of desolation, the Dome of the Rock, was built by the Umayyad dynasty started by Muawiyah.
A Beast In The Making
A holy place desolated. The beasts of Daniel have been named: Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. They all had something to do with the temple except Persia. What is preventing the third temple will point to the fourth beast. The Dome of the Rock. Islam is the fourth beast of Daniel. Different from all the rest.
A Holy Place
A temple where “there shall not be left here one stone upon another”. Jesus wants us to pay attention to the “abomination of desolation”. What is in the holy place now? Only Daniel knows and he also knows beasts. So what makes a beast a beast? A good question. There must be something special about a beast of Daniel.
A Visit By The Pope
A city in Iraq. Qaraqosh. Catholics are not wanted here. Catholics in Qaraqosh, Iraq, call it ‘miracle’ that pope will visit. AKA Bakhdida. Just change the name and the problem will go away. Are you still looking for a beast? This one is diverse from all the rest. Constantinople can be found no more at all. It is now Istanbul.
A beast in the making. What makes a beast a beast? The Temple. Don’t mess with the Temple. What is in the holy place now? The Dome of the Rock and it is preventing the third Temple. It takes a real beast to do this. The four beasts of Daniel all had something to do with the Temple. Babylon, Greece, Rome, and Islam.
A Beast in the Making
A beast in the mind of Daniel is different from all the rest. So what makes a beast a beast? Most agree on Antiochus of Greece. All he did was desecrate the second temple. Rome destroyed it. Babylon destroyed the first one. So what is preventing the third one? It should tell us about the fourth beast of Daniel.
A Source For Antiochus
A book not found in many bibles. Jesus mentions the abomination found in Daniel. You will not find Antiochus if your bible does not have the book Maccabees which also mentions the abomination that must be understood to identify what makes a beast a beast in the mind of Daniel.
