This covers 14 various scripture references from the first six Books of Daniel. Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord.
Daniel 1:4-5 The anti-Christ chooses people who are beneficial to him who can be conformed to his indoctrination and culture: “Children in whom was no blemish, but well favored, and skillful in all wisdom, and cunning in knowledge, and understanding science, and such as had ability in them to stand in the king’s palace, and whom they might teach the learning and the tongue of the Chaldeans. And the king appointed them a daily provision of the king’s meat, and of the wine which he drank: so nourishing them three years, that at the end thereof they might stand before the king.”
Daniel 2:5-6 The anti-Christ expects you to know what his dream and vision is without any prompting from him. The system of the anti-Christ will use materialism and prestige as rewards for contributions, and uses hostility towards those who are not contributing. “The king answered and said to the Chaldeans, The thing is gone from me: if you will not make known to me the dream, with the interpretation thereof, you will be cut in pieces, and your houses will be made a dunghill. But if you show the dream, and the interpretation thereof, you will receive of me gifts and rewards and great honor: therefore show me the dream, and the interpretation thereof.”
Daniel 2: 31, 34 What catches the attention of the anti-Christ are those who shine and those who are destroyed! The anti-Christ manipulates honesty so that he can shine while devising ways to destroy dissenters. However, Christ Jesus is that Rock who shines and who smites the image! “You, O king, saw, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you; and the form thereof was terrible. You saw till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.”
Daniel 2:43 This refers to the ten kingdoms which are grouped according to the laws of the New World Order. The anti-Christ will rule over the globe when these ten nations become solid in their formation. Click here to see a map of the ten kingdoms of the world. “And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they will not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.” The ten kingdoms will consist with all the various races, or seed, of mankind. The grouping of the ten kingdoms are mostly based on race; such as The Union of African Republics, the United States of South America, The Arabian Federated Republics, The United Republics of China, the United States of Scandinavia, the Federated Republics of India, etc.
Daniel 2:46-48 Again, we see how the anti-Christ uses flatteries, materialism, and prestige to reward those who make a positive contribution to the system of the anti-Christ. The anti-Christ constantly manipulates people to feel a certain way about this, that, or someone by demanding it to be so. The anti-Christ has absolutely no concern for the true condition of the soul or the spirit. After all, what kind of God-fearing person would put a worshipper of the One True God in charge of “wise men.” The wise men comprise those educated in astrology, science, etc. Remember, Daniel was indoctrinated into their culture after three years, it is not for him to indoctrinate the “wise men” into the Jewish culture. “Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odors to him. The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your God is a God of gods, and a Lord of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing you could reveal this secret. Then the king made Daniel a great man, and gave him many great gifts, and made him ruler over the whole province of Babylon, and chief of the governors over all the wise men of Babylon.”
Daniel 3:3 This verse reveals how evil, deceitful, manipulating, and dishonest the anti-Christ is. After all the flatteries of how great the One True God is, he builds an image which he will order all people to worship. In fact, he requires all the city and state leaders as well as law enforcement to attend the dedication of the image. Now, didn’t the anti-Christ just make a man of God ruler over the whole province of his kingdom? That show of honor meant absolutely nothing to the anti-Christ! Just another political ploy in his bag of tricks and treachery. “Then the princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the dedication of the image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set up.”
Daniel 3:15 The anti-Christ is hostile to music that fills the soul and spirit with adoration, praise, and worship through the Holy Spirit. Have you ever wondered what happened to the worship and praise music in the Church? Today, so-called Christian music is very contemporary and has very little to do with the Living God, the Cross of Christ, or the Holy Spirit. In fact, most people even face degrees of interference when they try to whistle while they work. Is it even possible to sing a soulful spiritually refreshing song while in the shower? “Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of music, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?”
Daniel 4:1-3 As my sister would say, “The anti-Christ is so full of it!” In this verse the anti-Christ speaks some pretty good words about how blessed he is by the high God. BLASPHEME! From the above verses we already see how he totally disregards the soul and the spirit, which the One True God created so that He could live in us and fellowship with us by His Spirit. The anti-Christ worships materialism, relies on flatteries and deceptions of peace, and uses force and violence to establish his agenda. BUT, when he make speeches, this is what you will hear him say; “Nebuchadnezzar the king, unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you. I thought it good to show the signs and wonders that the high God has wrought toward me. How great are his signs! and how mighty are his wonders! his kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and his dominion is from generation to generation.” Sounds legitimate, except the anti-Christ is speaking these words.
Daniel 4:23 The anti-Christ sure put on a great show with the speech he made in 4:1-3, BUT, the Living God, whom he said had greatly showed him favor, actually will do just the opposite! “And whereas the king saw a watcher and an Holy One coming down from heaven, and saying, Hew the tree down, and destroy it; yet leave the stump of the roots thereof in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts of the field, till seven times pass over him;” That is the anti-Christ who will be hewn down, and it will be the Spirit of Christ, who lives in our soul, that will hewn him down!
Daniel 4:27 Daniel, and all people who follow the way of the Cross of Christ, lays it all in the open to those within the system of the anti-Christ and to those that follow the modern god of knowledge. It is plainly spoken that the anti-Christ is unrighteous, full of sin, unmerciful to the poor, and facing the coming storms. “Wherefore, O king, let my counsel be acceptable unto you, and break off thy sins by righteousness, and thine iniquities by shewing mercy to the poor; if it may be a lengthening of thy tranquility.”
Daniel 5:2,4 The anti-Christ presents no concept of understanding for the soul and spirit. The soul is like the grocery bag to fill up with the Blessings that flow from the Kingdom of God through the Cross of Christ. The spirit enables our fellowship with the Spirit of God to allow our soul to be filled with the fruit of the Holy Spirit. The only thing the anti-Christ is concerned with is materialism in order to keep loyalty rooted in him and off of the One True God. The anti-Christ will use the tools, i.e. drinking cups, of the Holy One to pleasure people with his words or to soothe their conscience within their materialistic and fleshly indulgences. Those drinking vessels include the Word of God, the Church, etc. “Belshazzar, whiles he tasted the wine, commanded to bring the golden and silver vessels which his father Nebuchadnezzar had taken out of the temple which was in Jerusalem; that the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, might drink therein.” “They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone.”
Daniel 5:26-28 In this verse, we have God’s reply to those who use his Church and Word, i.e. “drinking vessels,” to promote materialistic values and fleshly indulgences; The anti-Christ saw the handwriting on the wall and was inwardly devastated and outwardly mute about what he saw! He wasn’t saying a word, but everyone knew that something was terribly, terribly, disturbing him. The anti-Christ sensed that his kingdom had come to an end. He was way off the scale in relationship to God’s plan of Redemption through the Cross of Jesus Christ. And it devastated him to think that his groupings of ten kingdoms, according to the New World Order, had become divided to the point of being defeated. Christ Jesus defeats the anti-Christ when He returns. “This is the interpretation of the thing: Mene; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. Tekel; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. Peres; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.”
Daniel 6:3,7,12-13 All the presidents and very high rulers of the ten kingdoms within the rule of the anti-Christ, wanted the very powerful man of God to be assassinated. And they planned to do it legally! That is the way of the anti-Christ, to be very concerned about proper images in order not to be associated with responsibility for persecuting those who follow the way of the Cross of Christ. In Christ Jesus, we are no longer under law, but we are under grace in order to give life to the spirit and to allow the soul to be filled with the Spirit of Christ. Legalisms are so, so easy to be manipulated for the benefit of Satan, the anti-Christ, and the incarnation of the 666. “Then this Daniel was preferred above the presidents and princes, because an excellent spirit was in him; and the king thought to set him over the whole realm.” “All the presidents of the kingdom, the governors, and the princes, the counsellors, and the captains, have consulted together to establish a royal statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days, save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of lions.” “Then answered they and said before the king, That Daniel, which is of the children of the captivity of Judah, regards not thee, O king, nor the decree that thou hast signed, but makes his petition three times a day.”
