End-of-Days Scenarios – Part 10

Terry James Prophecy Line

The prince –in our end-of-days scenario–has come forth from the people (the Romans) who destroyed the city (Jerusalem) and the sanctuary (the Jewish Temple) just as foretold by Daniel the prophet (Dan. 9:27). He comes guaranteeing a peace that has already been negotiated, and through great, swelling words aggrandizes himself in the eyes of many peoples throughout the world (Dan. 7:20).

Daniel 11:38: “But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.”

The Assyrian beast magnifies himself above all. He has attained godhood in his own inflated opinion of his abilities. He manifests the prideful arrogance of all of the great kings, princes, and tyrants of history in one ego-maniacal, supernaturally empowered man.

The great leader, at the same time –according to Daniel 11: 38—is in league with the “god…

One thought on “End-of-Days Scenarios – Part 10

  1. I think Terry James is partly correct; No doubt Islam has a lot to do with at least two End Times wars, Psalm 83, and Ezekiel 38-39.

    His mistake is in over-simplifying the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 ad. While it was indeed the “Roman” armies that completed the destruction of Jerusalem, those armies contained many soldiers from throughout the empire, not all were ethnic Romans. Josephus, in his Jewish War writes that a large number of auxiliaries were included, in Rome’s army, from the kings in the area of Damascus.

    Remember that the Roman troops were famous for their discipline. Titus, the Roman general, had issued orders to preserve the Temple intact. After the armies got out of control and began to destroy the Temple, he reversed his order and commanded the Temple to be destroyed. If it had appeared that he had lost his control over his troops he would have been removed as a general.

    Someone in his armies disobeyed his orders to preserve the Temple. I would say it would have had to have been the Syrians. They had a long history of animosity against Israel, and have never been noted for any kind of discipline. They are still a bunch of wild-men today.

    Even more important than the Syrian presence in the Roman armies is the fact that the Edomites, or Idumeans, arrived even before the Roman armies, and killed 20,500 people in Jerusalem! Among the dead were Ananus the high priest and Jesus, his deputy. These two men knew the armies of Rome couldn’t be beaten, but with them dead, the Idumeans left the Zealots in charge, and those men were willing to sacrifice the whole city in defiance of Rome. This is exactly what happened, and as a result around 1.3 million Jews were slaughtered, and the rest taken into captivity as slaves.

    Josephus blames the entire destruction of Jerusalem on the actions of the Idumeans, and I have to agree with him. The Antichrist will come from the descendants of Esau, who make up a large part of Jordan today.

    As for the part about the “God of his fathers, and the desire of women” I have answered that in my blog post “Will the Antichrist be Gay: at http://housetops.me/2014/05/11/will-the-antichrist-be-gay/ I would recommend that you read it.
