Wars that Lead to the Coming of Messiah
This is the continuation of the Bible Study we started yesterday with brother Leeland Jones. This time we will look at the wars that lead up to the coming of the Messiah. I have also included the short video in which Bibi names the United States as “The New Rome”. God bless and stay prayed up and prepped up! Johnny
Previously we looked at regional wars between the West in Greece and East with the Medo-Persian Empire in Daniel 8. Now, we’ll look at war in specific countries that lead to the Messiah as seen in Daniel 9:27 “unto the end of the war desolations are determined.”
We saw previously how USA forms the pattern of the 7 kings through the Grecian Empire.
¤ SHIPS OF CHITTIM
In Daniel 11 we see the conflicts between the king of the north against the king of the south and an verse 30 say, “For the ships of Chittim shall come.” Up until this time future empires west of Greece were only descibed as a “terrible beast” in Dan 7, which we now know to be the Romans. Which brings up an important point, many say “USA is not in Bible Prophecy,” which is like saying at the time of Christ, “Rome is not in Prophecy.” This would be an extremely ignorant statement as the early church code named Rome Babylon in correspondence, 1 Pet 5:13.
These “ships of Chittim” give insight into this Rome in the time of Maccabees.
◆“Daniel 11 line for line describes that time of troubles between the Seleucid Empire (north) and Ptolemaic Egypt (south), which were two of the four kingdoms which split off after Alexander the Great’s reign. Daniel 11:30 states that the ships of Kittim would block Antiochus IV Epiphanes from attacking Ptolemaic Egypt. After that, in Daniel 11:31, he would go and oppress Jerusalem. All of these things actually happened.”
◆”It was none other than Gaius Popillius Laenas sent directly from the Roman senate who stopped Antiochus from attacking Alenandria.”
Thus showing the fulfillment which leads us to another prophecy with the “ships of Chittim.”
Numbers 24:24 “And ships shall come from the coast of Chittim, and shall afflict Asshur, and shall afflict Eber.”
And Coming Messiah in v17 there shall come “a Star out of Jacob,
and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel”
Ancient church father Eusebius of Caesarea attributes Chittim to the Greeks when interpreting Dan 11 with Num 24:
◆ the legions of the Chittites and the armies of the Greeks are about to issue forth from the whole land of the Macedonians, and to subdue the Assyrians in wrath and the |157 land of Nimrod in anger.
◆ when the legions of the Chittites would issue forth from the land of the Macedonians ; and how would be devastated the lands and regions of all Asia, and the city of Ephesus, and the districts of Pontus, and Galatia, and Cilicia, and all Syria, and the spacious country of Mesopotamia and of all the Parthians; and (how) they would pass on to Nineveh, the city of Nimrod, the first of all mighty men, and would wage war violently with the Assyrians, and conquer them and subdue them
So the Magi understood the verses in Dan 8, 11 and Num 24 as wars leading to the Messiah in which they found Him in Mathew 2. And the prophecy would happen again with wars at Christ’s Second Coming.
¤ CHITTIM shall afflict ASSHUR
Alexander the Great conquered all the way to India as he headed East in the regions described by Eusebius, certainly including Asshur (see map).
But Rome only temporarily occupied Asshur or Mesopotamia because they were fought back by the Persians.
So in the last days “Chittim afflicts Asshur” again in the form of the US Invasions of Iraq. Remember, the last days Goat “came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground,” indicating an air invasion. This was fulfilled by both President Bushes.
¤ From INDIA to ETHIOPIA
In Esther 1:1 “Ahasuerus which reigned, from India even unto Ethiopia.”
So the end times beast must do the same, conquering the same Empire well beyond Asshur or Iraq but go all the way to the borders of India per Est 1:1. Thus the first war of the first king in Ronald Reagan and the first war after 9-11 was AFGHANISTAN! Looking back there’s no way to make heads or tails in the reasoning for all these Middle Eastern Wars, they make no sense. But they make perfect sense in light of Bible Prophecy.
The terrible beast, the revised Roman Empire is another “Chittim” conquering the nations of the former Medo-Persian Empire so must go to the border in north east Afghanistan. There are reasons not all countries are conquered like Pakistan because they have nukes or other obvious allies in the region.
¤ Ethiopia in the Persian Empire was the Kushite kingdom in the area of modern day Sudan. Once again, the US supported the war in Sudan leading to the division into two countries! Sudan and South Sudan.
¤ Lybia was the westernmost part of the Persian Empire and of course there was the hostile overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi
War in Afghanistan (2001–present)
Invasion of Iraq (2003)
2008 Lebanon conflict
American-led intervention in Iraq (2014–present)
War in North-West Pakistan (2004–present)
U.S. Intervention in the Somali Civil War (2007–present)
American-led intervention in Syria (2014–present)
Yemeni Civil War (2015–present)
American intervention in Libya (2015–present)
All these pointless Wars for what? To hand the kingdom over to Israel.
Nations must chose sides between Russia/China/Iran or Israel/USA.
Thus we have the Abraham Accords and Peace Deal of the Antichrist.
Many think Antichrist is a man of war but he’s actually a “peace deal maker.”
¤ Antichrist “man of peace” (or else)
Therfore in Dan 11, verses 41 to 43 Antichrist has the Muslim nations have peace agreements or “normalizing ties” with Israel.
41 “He shall enter also into the glorious land,” he’ll go to State of Israel
41 “Edom, Moab, Ammon will escape,” there’s a possibility Jordan extend “normalized ties” Israel, let’s watch and see
42 Egypt has been the center of “cease fires” and Arab League meetings and v43 the little horn place economic pressure on Muslim nations forming an axis against Iran.
44 “the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps,” after the overthrow of Lybia and Sudan, neighboring Morocco and Sudan sign Abraham Accords.
44 “tidings out of the East and out of the North shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.” East here is Iran and North could be Russia and or Turkey
As Patriotic, law abiding, tax paying, good little American citizen, now you know where you tax money is going towards your whole life, a Kingdom of Israel that wars against the Lamb, Alpha Omega at Armageddon!
So there you have it, understanding of the seven kings, there NWO wars and the peace deals of the “little horn” of New Rome:
All the Antichrist has yet to fulfill is going iinto the 3rd Temple and break the covenant.
All proof the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is at hand!
Wow the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is at hand INDEED! Guys I can’t emphasize it enough but once again TIME IS SHORT! Stop sitting on the fence and make Jesus Christ your Lord and Savior TODAY!
