Pamphlet 5019 KC Daniel 5-2
Do you think for one minute God isn't watching the fiasco of the nations at this time...
We are instructed to be watchmen, so at times we should pause and reflect on the things that are happening.
For example, when the seven astronauts fell from the sky resently, President Bush stood up and quoted from Isa. 40, the chapter which is called the second book of Isaiah because it is the chapter that introduces Messiah.
He quoted verse 26 but let's go there and quote the verse before that and the verse after that.
To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One.
In other words, "Who is like God?"
That is exactly what the name "Michael" means, remember?
Next verse: (This is the one quoted from the Bush, President Bush that is.)
 Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: He calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth.
Make no mistake about it! Our Father is in complete control.
And He is JUDGE of ALL! DAN-I-EL, God is Judge!
 Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel, My way is hid from the LORD, and my judgment is passed over from my God?
Do you think for one minute He isn't watching the fiasco of the nations at this time... and at the same time keeping track of the very hairs on your head?
He certainly is!
We just read concerning the heavenly bodies... "He calls them all by names by the greatness of His might!"
And why sayest thou "my judgment is passed over from my God?"
Do people think there is no consequence to pay for forsaking the Lord God?
Boy, they really are in big trouble if they think that's the case.
Now notice that His judgment is brought into this!
The word "judgment" used in this verse is "shaphat" in Hebrew and you may recall that we talked about the Valley of Jehoshaphat in Joel chapter 3. Jeho-shaphat means Yahveh Judges!
So you better look up, lift up your eyes on high, all ye peoples and languages and nations and BEHOLD who is the Creator God... for His judgment doth soon come upon the world!
Where will you stand at that time... on His right or on His left (Mat. 25:32)?
Now let's return to Revelation 12 where the war in heaven is taking place and "see" who has the victory!
And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
In other words, the king of Babylon is nothing compared to the power and might of Almighty God.
Therefore he is going to get the boot and be ousted when the Supreme Commander in Chief gives the command!
 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
And they will stand up against the king of Babylon when they are delivered up before him (by the power of the first beast) and they will NOT bow a knee to him.
We are going to see a great ensample of this by Shadrach and company real soon.
But for now we are focusing on the fact that both Satan and his angels are cast to the earth following war in heaven.
Of course, one must be familiar with who Satan's angels are in order to understand the magnitude of what is about to happen.
These are the none other than the fallen angels, the sons of God called the "nephilim" in Genesis chapter 6 ("nephilim" comes from the word "naphal" meaning fallen) who came to this earth without being born of woman and took to wife the daughters of Adam in an attempt to destroy the seed line through which Jesus Christ, the Savior of the World, the One who would bruise Satan's head, would be born.
Well, get ready, because they are coming again!
How do we know that?
Jesus Christ told us. Remember, He has foretold us all things.
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
They were marrying and giving in marriage, as in "mixing with the seed of men".
You will find that documentation in Genesis 6!
Noah and his family were the only Adamic souls left who had not intermixed, mingled, with these fallen angels.
 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
In other words, we shall have the supernatural, these fallen sons of God who are angelic beings, mixing with flesh man, just as it was in the days of Noah.
Keep in mind that the type we saw in the days of Noah is meant to show us for the most part what will be happening spiritually when they come to this earth. It is the spiritual seduction, the spiritual mixing, that will cause the majority of Christians to worship the false messiah and attend the wrong wedding feast, the great gathering together in Jerusalem!
Of course we know that Satan and his angelic host will have at most five months... according to the time of the locust in Rev. 9.
Finally, before we return to the awesome image in chapter two of Daniel, let's also document the magnitude of the sound of 6th Trump when Satan and his angels are cast to this earth as per the scriptures we covered in Rev. 12:7-9.
This should help in seeing why it is that the image of the one world system Nebuchadnezzar saw was so great and dreadful.
You "see", the image involved the supernatural!
Here is what Daniel wrote concerning the magnitude of the event "at that time" when Michael stands up and casts Satan and his angels to this earth and they mingle with flesh man.
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Here are Christ's own words concerning the time He spoke of when the abomination of desolation (spoken of by Daniel the prophet) comes and stands in the holy place:
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
You see, this generation shall face the supernatural and because they are not mentally nor spiritually prepared with the strength which only comes from the Word of God, they shall be deceived by the miraculous things they will see!
Here are a few more scriptures for emphasis and another witness concerning the awesome time when Satan appears on the earth:
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Ok, with that background in mind, let's return to the book of Daniel and pick it up in chapter 2 vs. 35 after Daniel told Nebuchadnezzar that he saw a stone cut out without hands smite the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and break them to pieces. That stone is Jesus Christ, the Rock of our salvation, the Stone of Israel as He is called in Gen. 49:24.
He is the stone which the builders rejected and He shall now be the head stone of the corner over all the earth (Ps. 118:22)! Jesus Christ is the Rock, the only true foundation upon which you can stand.
Don't put your trust in the beast and his system because the image that Nebuchadnezzar saw had a very weak foundation of iron mixed with clay and it's coming DOWN!
Stand firmly upon the Rock and put your trust in Him.
Jesus said, "the book of Daniel was where one could go read and gain understanding"Jesus Christ told us in Matthew 24 and Mark 13 when He sat upon the Mount of Olives and gave His disciples the seven seals concerning the knowledge and the events that would transpire during the final generation of the fig tree, that the book of Daniel was where one could go read and gain understanding concerning the abomination of desolation, that abominable desolator (antichrist) who would come stand in the holy place claiming to be God.
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits;
to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
