Obama mocked the Bible as America’s heritage and favored Islam and a “Holy Qur’an”? The Bible suggests his soon-coming fate in the only book recommended by Christ when asked about the end of the world—the book of Daniel.
The Savior urged our understanding of the book of Daniel, Matthew 24:3,15. The book of Daniel was sealed until the time of the end, Daniel 12:4. The angel, Gabriel, told Daniel that his vision [chazon of ram and goat] “is at the time of the end.”
Historians recognize the defeat of the Medes and Persians by Alexander the Great at the Battle of Arbela in 331 BC as fulfilling Daniel 8:7,8,20,21. But that was not “the time of the end.” This begs an understanding that there is an end-time application to this vision AND probably to Daniel’s whole book that was “sealed until the time of the end.”
In Daniel 8:7, the ram had its horns broken. They represented the kings of Media and Persia. But those areas today are Iraq and Iran. We have already seen the horn of Saddam Hussein broken. If we can trust the Bible, we should see trouble coming for Iran as it has pledged itself against Israel.
But Obama’s love for Islam has led him to press Israel for concessions that make them vulnerable to attack. The Bible says God “will gather all [Arab] nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken and the houses rifled and the women ravished and half of the city shall go forth into captivity… Then shall the LORD go forth to fight against those nations.” Zechariah 14:2,3.
The “going forth to fight against those nations” is also seen in Daniel 8:7 where the ram is stomped and then the goat becomes great. This sounds good for the United States until we see its great horn broken in Daniel 8:8. The Bible says that horn represents the king of Grecia, Daniel 8:21.
But remember, Daniel has an end-time application and Alexander wasn’t “the time of the end.” This is about Obama as Commander-in-Chief responsible for the U.S. attack on the ram of militant Islam as it “flies from the west on the face of the whole earth and touched not the ground,” Daniel 8:5.
Daniel’s description had to fit both the historical war of Alexander and the end-time application in order to be “sealed” till the time of the end. When we see the geographical areas of the Medes and Persians being broken by a western power, we can understand “touched not the ground” as an air war and coming “from the face of the whole earth” represents a coalition. Neither of these fit Alexander’s time.
After the defeat of Muslims militant against Israel, the goat becomes great, but its horn (king/Obama?) is broken. In history, Alexander died prematurely at the age of 33. This suggests early death for Obama, as does the broken horn of Saddam Hussein.
After the “great horn” is broken, four horns spring up toward the four winds, Daniel 8:8. The margin refers to Daniel 7 where four winds strove upon the sea and Daniel saw four beasts come up. It is significant that the Bible represents nations and govenments as fierce beasts of prey. True also today.
The first was like a lion with eagle’s wings. God “declares the end from the beginning,” Isaiah 46:10. The United Kingdom is often represented as a lion. The United States is represented by an eagle.
The second beast was like a bear that has three ribs in its mouth, and it’s told, “Arise and devour much flesh,” Daniel 7:5. “Arise” because it has been down. The three ribs could be Georgia, the Ukraine and?
The third beast was like a leopard with four heads. An Asian coalition of China, Japan, Korea and Thailand could fit this description.
The fourth beast was like a dragon with 10 horns. In the historic application, the Roman Empire was represented, and as it fell, the 10 horns represented 10 tribes that roamed Europe, but one of these horns became great. The Protestant Reformers were united in their view that it was the papacy, the “Holy Roman Empire” that grew out of pagan Rome and dominated Europe for many centuries.
In the end-time application, it is not hard to see this beast as the European Union, and again we may expect the papacy to dominate as Daniel 7:20-25 describes. This author is indebted to information from Charles Wheeling and his website.
When these things happens, everyone should turn to Scripture for a better understanding of the prophecies in Daniel and Revelation. Revelation 13 reveals the Old World Order as an amalgamation of the four beasts from Daniel 7. It has a mouth like a lion, feet like a bear, looks like a leopard, but has the total of seven heads and 10 horns from Daniel 7. Amazing imagery that begs our understanding.
My urgent concern is for the people in Jerusalem who should consider further information at http://ezinearticles.com/?Could-Judgment-Be-Impending-on-Jerusalem?-A-View-of-History,-Bible-Prophecy-and-Current-Events&id=8395758 In addition, everyone should have a better understanding of http://AmericaInProphecy.me
