Dan 11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.
I am just want to share some of my thoughts in this post. I am not dogmatic on it, but I have some suggestions on what may be happening that looks like the fulfilment of Bible prophecy.
Gaddafi is dead and the NATO lead uprising in Libya was successful. The Libyan government has been subdued. The Egypt government has been subdued a few months ago and Sudan (Ethiopia) was split in two creating Sudan and Southern Sudan. Is this maybe a fulfilment of Dan 11:43? Is Israel next? I know the antichrist has not been revealed yet, but I believe he is working in the background, hidden from view, to get everything in place for the time that he is revealed. There have been many reports showing how JS is involved in politics, even more today than during the time he was HRFSP of Europe and Secretary General of NATO. The Bible does suggest that the AC is involved, but in a hidden way before his rise to power. So the possibility of him being involved with the subduing of nations but not credited for it is good.
2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
2Th 2:6-12 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Rev_13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
The key here is continue. You have to be busy with something to be able to continue with it. I suggest that the AC is currently busy orchestrating events behind the scenes, but as soon as he is revealed, he will get the power to continue with what he is busy with in full view of the world.
The deadly wound.
Rev 13:3-4 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
Much has been written about the deadly wound of the antichrist. The most popular theory and one that I doubt will ever happen, is the idea that the AC will be shot, and then he will rise from the death possessed by satan himself. One theory that is very plausible is that the deadly wound is Nazi Germany that was wounded to death but they will rise to power again. It is plausible as Germany is currently the richest nation in the EU. They did rise as though a deadly wound was healed.
I want to submit another perspective on the wound. What if the wound is linked to money?
Lets first see what the Bible says about the head in the vision:
Rev 17:9-10 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
Clearly the head is not the antichrist, so bang goes the first theory. The head is a mountain/kingdom. The horns are kings and the antichrist is a little horn coming from between the other ten horns.
The outlook on the Euro and the EU is very bad. Many people see the current economic crisis as the beginning of the death of the Eurozone. Currently there is no real fix for the economic problems. Greece is the tip of the iceberg, but Spain and Italy is the real unseen mountain under the water. Italian bonds are falling at an alarming rate, threatening to bring the Euro down with it. There is now way that those countries can all be bailed out.
Keep your eyes open for some miracle plan saving the wounded head. Whatever plan it may be, it will involve the AC and the world will wonder after the beast system worshiping the dragon/satan. Wondering after the beast can mean that this plan will look so good to that the rest of the world will implement it and by doing that we can see the rise of the mark of the beast.
Dan 11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall beat his steps.
Friends, I truly believe that we are on the brink of the final 42 months. I will stick my head out again and say that I believe that the ENP(i) is the fulfillment of the Dan 9:27 covenant with many. There is just not enough time for another 7 year treaty to be found and implemented. The pieces of the puzzle are falling into place. Apparently the UNSC will reveal their decision on the Palestinian state early next month. Will this lead to Israel being divided? The world’s economy is failing. Will the Eurozone rise from the death with the world wondering behind it?
