The Time of the End 3

“Taken as a whole, Daniel 11:36 to 45 is a description of the closing days of the times of the Gentiles, specifically, the great tribulation with its world ruler, world religion, and materialistic philosophy. In spite of its satanic support, the world government fragments into sectional disputes and a great world war that climaxes with the second advent of Christ. This brings the time of the Gentiles to a close with the destruction of the wicked rulers who led it. Further details are added in the next chapter.” - Dr. John Walvoord

The Time of the End 2

Daniel 11:36-39 deals with the final week of Daniel’s vision of the seventy weeks. This is the final period of time leading up to the establishing of Christ’s eternal kingdom. The early church father, Jerome, wrote that the Jewish people believed that these verses were a reference to the Antichrist.

Of Men and Nations 5

The God who controls human history, the God who orchestrates world events to fulfill His plans and purposes, that same God has our lives ordered too. It’s true, He doesn’t force us to follow His plans, but our lives will have far more meaning, and joy, and purpose if we’re willing to let Him take control. Have you given Him that privilege?

Daniel 11 covers the major rulers of the Persian Empire, followed by a brief record of Alexander the Great who led the Greek Empire. The third empire, the one following Alexander, is described in great detail and concludes with Antiochus Epiphanes. Join us as we study the details of Antiochus' life.

Of Men and Nations 3

“I have lived… a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth - that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an Empire can rise without his aid?" - Benjamin Franklin In all the things Daniel was prophesying, God is behind the scenes, using the free choices of men to accomplish His sovereign plans!

Of Men and Nations 2

The time period in Daniel 11:2-9 is later than Nebuchadnezzar’s dream but corresponds with chapter eight’s prophecy on the ram and the goat. Since the Babylonian empire has passed off the scene, the question arises about the length and scope of the Persian empire. The angel informs Daniel that he will tell him the truth and mentions three kings that will arise, and then a fourth king who will be greater in power and richer than his predecessors. He will use his wealth, power, and influence to stir up resentment against Greece.

Of Men and Nations

To begin, no other portion of Scripture presents more detailed prophecy than Daniel 11:1-35. There are 135 prophetic statements listed in this section, and all have been historically fulfilled! These verses describe the major rulers of the Persian Empire, followed briefly by Alexander the Great. The third empire after Alexander is described in great detail and concludes with Antiochus Epiphanes (175-164 BC). The time period from the death of Antiochus until the last Gentile ruler (the Church Age), is completely skipped over.

A Glorious Vision 4

God alone is the source of our strength. Whatever we need to face, we have His promise that He will NEVER leave us or forsake us. The message we are called to deliver as His ambassadors is not designed to make us likable in this world. Jesus said they hated Him, and they will hate us as His followers. But, the glorious vision that Daniel saw was but a foretaste of the glorious kingdom of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. For Daniel, it was a vision; for us, it will soon be a reality!

A Glorious Vision 3

For the third time in Daniel 10, Daniel is strengthened supernaturally. This may be the same angel that addressed him in verse 11. The wording he uses is similar and so is the designation of “Oh man, greatly beloved.” He encourages Daniel to receive peace from God and to be strong, repeating the words for emphasis. His words were sufficient to strengthen Daniel to the point where he could respond, “let my lord speak.”
