Who’s Who in Daniel 11

Daniel 11 tells the future. In Daniel’s day, it pulled back the curtain of time and revealed what would take place among the nations after Daniel’s death in 536 B.C. Even today...

  1. Can we discuss further on Daniel 10-12? It is clear that the message was twisted at some point to adapt to some historical events and we have accepted it wholesomely without questions.

  2. Antichrist’s death forever terminates Gentile domination of the world and ushers in the Davidic, Messianic Kingdom over which Jesus will rule from Jerusalem (Dan. 2:44–45). Israel will no longer be the tail but the head (Dt. 28:13) of all nations:

    can you further explain this?

  3. Thank you! God bless you! Could you possibly explain how there is a shift to the antichrist since I still remnants of the kings of the north and the south?

  4. I read Deuteronomy 18: 20-22 and nowhere does it state that “Gods’ requirement for a prophet was to be accurate 100% of the time or be stoned to death,
    It says ” But the prophet, which shall PRESUME to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.”
    IN other words, false prophets who claim that they received a message from God and prophesy to the people and mislead them shall be killed.

  5. Hello,

    So in your explanation, you say the four kings are:
    Cambyses (529–522 B.C.)
    Pseudo-Smerdis (522–521)
    Darius I (Darius the Great, 521–486)
    Xerxes I (Ahasuerus of Esther, 485–465)

    Historically, there were more kings after Xerxes leading all the way to Darius III , before Alexander the Great conquered the Persian Empire.

    Second, the prophecy appears to read, there would be 4 more Kings from the point of Darius I.

    How do you reconcile these two difficulties?

    1. This is my understanding: in Daniel we see the four beast. Each beast represents a king/kingdom who actively asserts its power on the earth. The Medo/Persian empire (the Ram with two horns m, one larger than the other or the Bear with one side raised higher than the other) has its mantle of supremacy removed by the Grecian empire (the goat or leopard with four wings) once that mantle of authority was removed the following rulers of that kingdom no longer mattered.

      So, up to Xerxes the Persian empire Maintained the mantle of authority. Once the mantle of authority passed to the Grecian empire the subsequent rulers of the Persian empire were no longer relevant.

      I think of it as a genealogy of the one world government. That is, only those in direct line of that final government really matter.

  6. How do we know that Daniel didn’t skip over Antiochus Epipanes entirely and go to the End Time vile leader who would defile the sanctuary and set up the abomination of desolation? I know you wrote that Daniel skipped to the End Time leader but that was after Epiphanes, not before. Why is it necessary to include A. E. ? The timeline would have better flow this way, IMO. I hope my question is clear. If not, please ask me to clarify before giving an explanation. Thank you.
