CHRIST COMES IN THE MIDST OF EVIL TO SET UP HIS KINGDOM
“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.” Daniel 2:44-49
“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom..”
When Daniel says, “And in the days of these kings..” he is talking about the kings he saw relating to the vision of the image with the Gold head right down to the ten toes of clay and iron. In the days of those kings, Jesus Christ will return to set up His Kingdom. Those kings are represented by the Lion with the wicked heart of man, the Bear that came up on it’s side with three ribs in its mouth to devour flesh, the Leopard with four heads and four wings of a fowl, and the fierce beast that had metal teeth. To draw a picture of how wicked the world is at the return of Jesus Christ, all we need to do is define the activity of those four beasts.
A Lion is ferocious, powerful, very predatory, and given a man’s wicked heart is totally to be feared. This Lion is basically bullying and intimidating people to cause them to seek refuge within the system of the anti-Christ. Lions with an evil heart are brute force killers. The Bear with the ribs in its mouth is also very ferocious and predatory, but in a different way than the Lion. The Bear raised itself up on the side, just like Eve, and the Bear demands to cleave to humanity’s flesh and to be mankind’s help-mate, just like Eve. That Bear is working to usher in the god of knowledge that cleaves to the flesh and to facilitate acceptance of the 666. The Bear is capable of much violence and destruction.The three ribs in it’s mouth represents the Trinity of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. This ferocious predatory Bear is totally evil as it goes about destroying unity, relationships, contracts, treaties, etc. based on noble qualities such as the Spirit of Christ. Already, with just those two beasts, we see a very clear picture of how terrifying and predatory the human rights violations will be at the time when Jesus Christ returns.
Also, when Christ comes, there will exist the policy-maker, orchestrator, the director that causes all the Beasts to work in unison, with a common purpose, as one body. That Beast is the leopard with four heads and wings like those of a fowl. All those Beasts will work together in accomplishing whatever it is that the anti-Christ wants accomplished. As is obvious, the anti-Christ honors the god of force, such as the Bear and Lion, with policy to make it all legal. After all, no one will be able to buy or sell unless they live by the 666, and the Bear and Lion are there to enforce that rule, which is made enforceable by the Leopard. The Beast with the fierce countenance and iron teeth is the god of knowledge that cleaves to the flesh. Because it has iron teeth, it symbolizes not being of a fleshy nature, but instead it is some sort of technology, space technology, etc. It will include microchip technology. All this will be very, very, active during the time that Jesus Christ returns. Policy and laws will be established to make the 666 mandatory which is of the Beast with iron teeth. The Lion will brutally enforce those laws to enforce loyalty to the Beast with iron teeth. The Bear will devour any unity based on faith in the Living God, will devour relationships based on the Spirit of Christ, and will devour any sign of the presence of the Holy Spirit. The Bear demands loyalty to the Beast with iron teeth.
Jesus Christ returns during very, very, ferocious times for the world to see His mighty victory over Satan, the anti-Christ, and all demonic forces! In fact, when the Battle of Armageddon is raging, Jesus Christ returns to conquer all His foes and to establish His Kingdom forever. This is the time when all tribulation, no matter how great, is put to an end. Unlike the ten toes, or the ten global kingdoms of the anti-Christ, the Kingdom of Christ Jesus will never, ever, be destroyed. It is eternal. When we see all the Biblical prophecy being fulfilled right before our very eyes, it is so easy to believe in our eternal Home in the New Jerusalem. Which is just as real as Hell, the Lake of Fire, which is the home of those who choose the anti-Christ over what Jesus Christ did for us on the Cross.
When Jesus Christ returns, His Kingdom will not be left to other people and will no longer be invaded with wickedness. Instead, Jesus Christ is going to completely destroy the ten global kingdoms that are under the rule of the anti-Christ. Read the Book of Revelation for some details of the destruction done to the earth. Christ Jesus comes to destroy the destruction! Jesus Christ will break those kingdoms into pieces and totally consume them. Then, He will create a New Heaven and a New Earth exclusively for those who are faithful to the Living God, who abides faithfully in the Cross of Jesus Christ, and who are faithful to the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. His Kingdom is eternal that stands forever!
Daniel says, “Forasmuch as thou sawest that the Stone was cut out of the mountain without hands,” That Stone is Jesus Christ, and that Stone destroys the system of the anti-Christ. That Stone smites the feet, the ten toes, which are the ten global kingdoms of the New World Order. It is a ferociously wicked world during the time of Christ’s return. That Stone was not made with any human hands at all because that Stone is the Creator of all things, is the Lord of lords and King of kings! That Stone is the One who gave His life on the Cross so that we can have life and be with Him eternally in the New Jerusalem.
When we accept what Jesus Christ did for us on the Cross, we have the Spirit of Christ living in us. This is a Spirit born in Heaven which is able to wash us and make us free from the burden of sin. The burden of sin is a burden because it allows Satan, the anti-Christ, and demonic forces to manipulate us through our desires for sin. Lusts of the eyes, lusts of the flesh, and pride are all ways that the anti-Christ will attempt to manipulate us. All he wants to do is to steal, destroy, and kill all that God has done for us through Jesus Christ. When we accept what Jesus Christ has done for us on the Cross, then our sin is dormant, inactive, and made to do nothing, therefore the anti-Christ is dormant, inactive, and made to do nothin gin us. Please, believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord.
