Pamphlet 5022 KC Daniel 6-2
"Who is in charge of the land of
The answer is the "good and the bad figs" of Jeremiah 24.
Now let's return to Rev. 17 and complete the understanding of the seven kingdoms which have reigned in the land of Judea since the time of Nebuchadnezzar's vision, which is the "hereafter" spoken of in Dan. 2:29.
And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
In fact we read in Mark 13"20 concerning the "short space" that the Lord did in fact shorten the period of antichrist's reign.
Mark 13:20 "And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days.
After the short space, the shorten time given to Satan to reign defacto upon the earth, Michael takes hold of that sucker and casts him back into the pit for the duration of the Millennium (Rev. 20:1-3), after which he will be released for another short space and then be cast into the lake of fire where he will perish for ever and ever, i.e. he will be no more (Ezek. 28:19). And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
Now, let us see historically from the time of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon's dream until today what crowns have occupied Jerusalem in the land of Judea.
First, there are five which have
fallen, which means they are now history!
[see Rev. 17:10 ...five
They are as follows:
1. Gold = Babylonian Empire
2. Silver = Medo-Persian Empire
3. Brass = Grecian Empire
4. Iron = The Roman Empire
5. Iron and Clay = Mohammedan Power from 636 AD until 1948 AD.
That's five which are past history, which leaves us with the question "Who is in charge of the land of Judea today?"
The answer is the "good and the bad figs" of Jeremiah 24 which were set out in the land of Judea, though it is politically controlled by the bad figs! [See #1969]
This happened on May 15, 1948, when the United Nations gave sanction to the state of Israel.
(Read "The Parable of the Fig Tree" [Pamphlet 1031} if you do not understand this.)
So they are the 6th kingdom to occupy the land of Judea. [see Rev. 17:10 ..., and one is, ...]
Hey, their standard even bears a "star" with 6 points on it!
How about that?
That leaves one crown yet to come! [see Rev. 17:10 ...and the other is not yet come;...]
My friends, that leaves the ten horns, which are the ten kings, the ten toes of the image Daniel described to Nebuchadnezzar, which have not come to power yet, but will reign with the beast, that one who ascends from the bottomless pit, i.e. Satan!
Revelation chapter nine will make it real clear to you who comes out of the bottomless pit and who their head is, even Apollyon, the desolator.
Nevertheless, understand from the next verse that the 10 horns John saw are the ten kings who are yet to come and reign with the beast!
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
Don't misunderstand, they do not submit their power to the beast, they give their supernatural power and strength to it, as in add their power to the beast making it an awesome thing!
And as it is written, those who do not have the seal of God in their foreheads and lack the wisdom to know what is happening, will surely WONDER (be astonished, marvel) after the beast... remember?
Rev. 17:8 "The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is."
Those who are alive at the time of the end shall all see the image Nebuchadnezzar saw, only in reality, the real thing, i.e. not in symbolic form!
The "these" in the next verse are the 10 supernatural kings, the fallen angels, who come and reign with antichrist.
 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
Are you called, and chosen, and faithful?
Do you have the "gospel armor" on and in place whereby you are ready to take a stand against the fiery darts of the wicked one (Eph. 6)?
Some of God's elect are going to be delivered up before Satan (whose name is "death", Heb. 2:14) and shall give witness and testimony as the Holy Spirit speaks through them with such wisdom and clarity that even the gainsayers will be convinced!
But have no fear and as per Christ's instructions, do not worry (be anxious) and do not premeditate what you shall say when you are delivered up.
Your Father is in complete control!
In fact, we will soon witness an ensample of that delivering up in this book of Daniel and see His power and control... for Satan cannot harm one hair on your head!
You "see", we ALREADY have the victory!
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.
