The book of Daniel is the foundation of Biblical prophecy. Misinterpret it, and you will be unable to connect that prophecy to world events, men, or empires of the past, present or future. It’s a map of history, beginning with the Jews taken into Babylonian captivity, and finishing with the return of the Messiah – Jesus Christ to rule over this world.
But in the final chapter we are told its meaning has been closed and sealed until the time of the end. We can see looking back at the attempts of Bible scholars from centuries past, that they had been unable to break that seal. Their attempts to interpret events prophesied by Daniel failed because they failed to realise that “the time of the end” would not begin until Daniel’s people had been gathered from the four corners of the earth; back to their Promised Land, ready to keep their final appointment with God. And Israel was once again a sovereign nation in control of its capital city – Jerusalem.
The book is made up of multiple layers of historical facts and symbolism; that inform the reader of the origin and future of a man students of scripture know as the Antichrist, and his world empire. This man, who shall arise at a certain point in history; empowered by God’s enemy – Satan, will attempt to usurp the throne of Jesus Christ; as ruler of this world.
It is therefore somewhat ironic that another cause of those centuries of misunderstanding is something as simple as the incorrect application of a present tense interpretation to a phrase that is future tense.
I thank God for that day, as I once again sat down to read chapter seven; wearing my usual regulation eschatology reading spectacles. When he wiped the mist of old scholastic dogma from them, and caused me to take notice of the fact that the phrase – “shall arise” – doesn’t mean already exists. And to realise the implications of that fact.
Mark’s gospel records the Sadducees, (who didn’t believe in the resurrection) questioning Jesus. He told them they were in error because they did not know the scriptures. He said, “haven’t you read how God said to Moses, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?” In using the present tense – “I am” – God was indicating that those men were still alive.
Getting, or not getting the message can often hinge on the proper understanding of a single word or phrase.
How many of us were taught at school that Neanderthals were the missing link between humans and our ape ancestors? How many of us read textbooks that claimed conclusive evidence of mankind’s ape origin was provided by the discovery of Piltdown Man? How many of us later learned that Piltdown Man was in fact a hoax, created from the jawbone of an orangutan combined with a modern human skull? How many of us heard the more recent news, that Neanderthals were in fact a humanoid species that coexisted with mankind, and were at least as intelligent as us? Or that a small percentage of humans are believed by scientists to carry their genes?
In this book, I will present evidence that the Nephilim, recorded in scripture as being offspring of angels and human women, integrated with a small section of mankind. I will argue that the reason scripture refers to the Antichrist as a beast; is because he is descended from these Nephilim hybrids. You may find my argument so extraordinary as to seem impossible. You may prefer to believe what you were taught at school.
