The Matthew 24 series on Jesus’ “Olivet Discourse” continues. This week covers Matthew 24:15+ and focusing on Daniel 7’s Beasts. Note how the Gentile empires will eventually be destroyed as they give rise to the Antichrist. These Daniel 7 visions reveal the sweep of Gentile’s domination over Israel leading to her salvation and a special focus on the rise of the Antichrist and his 10 cohorts. These are all signs of Christ’s second coming return.
September 20, 2020 – Signs of Christ’s Return – “The Beasts” – Matthew 24:15, 21; Daniel 7.
Perilous Times – ‘15 “Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), …21 For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.“‘ Matthew 24:15, 21 NASB
Vision of the Four Beasts – …’7 After this I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. 8 While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering great boasts.‘ Daniel 7:7-8 NASB
