In this age of all deadly viruses, in this age of all fatal fears, in this age of all inflations when
the world is becoming more and more inhabitable, socially, economically, morally and
spiritually let’s turn to the pages of holy write.
We will begin by giving a simple summary of the Biblical view according to the book of
Daniel. And why the book of Daniel, because Christ command all of us to read the prophecy
of Daniel. (Mt.24:15). Here is the sum:
- Dan.2: the world history in a human image starting from the days of Babylon
through Medo-Persia, Greece, Pagan Rome to the Advent of Christ the Rock.
- Dan. 7: the world history in view of the beasts of prey from the days of Babylon
through Medo-Persia, Greece, Pagan Rome, Papal Rome to the Advent of Christ and
- Dan.8: the world history in view of the temple beasts from the days of Medo-Persia
through Greece, Pagan Rome, Papal Rome to the Advent of Christ.
- Dan.11: the world history as a narrative of political movements from the days of
Medo-Persia through Greece, Pagan Rome, Papal Rome to the Advent of Michael
The Great Prince.
Notice that: each chapter ends with a time of trouble for the inhabitance of planet earth
and more so for the saints. Ch.2 ends with clay from gold struggling to mingle with iron, a
situation of reduction and retardation, from glory to ashes. Ch.7 ends with the little horn
fighting the saints and blaspheming God. Ch.8 ends with the little horn fighting the
sanctuary, the Prince of the host and the heavenly host. Ch.11 ends with the king of the
North coming like a whirl-wind against many countries and the Beautiful holy mountain.
This is in fulfillment of two prophecies : Dan.12: 1 7 Mt.24: 21 there shall be a time of
trouble such as there was never. Dear friends Babylon came and go, Medo-Persia came and
go, Greece came and go, Pagan Rome came and go, and we are in its divided phase, the
Little horn and facing the Advent of Christ. Shall we not search from Scriptures for light and
truth, that we may be encouraged and rooted in this perilous times. Be well.
