Battles In Book Of Daniel Leading to Rise of “Raiser of Taxes” and Then The Anti-Christ
BATTLES BEFORE THE APPEARING OF THE ANTI-CHRIST
“And ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.” Matthew 24:6
In the First year of Darius the Mede, the 3rd king, Daniel had a vision of the military battles that would transpire leading up to the “raiser of taxes.” We associate raising taxes with the Democrats, Socialists, and Communists. While the “raiser of taxes” is definitely compelled by demonic forces, it is not THE anti-Christ. The “raiser of taxes” comes to power as a result of the military battles, but the anti-Christ seizes power peaceably through flatteries. In fact, because the “raiser of taxes” fails through global economic collapse, that is the opportunity that the anti-Christ uses to step in and “fix things.” For example, fixing things by implementing a cashless society and a mandatory system based on the 666. 666 includes computer chip technology and the god of knowledge that cleaves to the flesh. The anti-Christ seizes power from failed global tax policies and the “raiser of taxes” comes to power through military conquest.
The United States is no longer a powerhouse of Democracy when the anti-Christ reigns. In fact, the United States is no longer a powerhouse of democracy when the “raiser of taxes” seizes control of the ten global kingdoms. In essence, the only world power that would even come close to defeating the appearance of the anti-Christ is well out of the picture when the anti-Christ steps in peaceably and with flatteries.
The raising of taxes would be for the redistribution of wealth to support the ten global kingdoms as mandated by the New World Order. The United States has been saying for years that the United Nations is receiving an unfair amount of “taxes” from them, and the U.S. refuses to pay the full amount requested. The United States loss of power is depicted in the battles in this section. The United States loses power before the “raiser of taxes” appears. The general population will talk about how the U.S. has fallen to Socialism or Communism, but it is a demonic scheme to usher in the rise of the anti-Christ. Once the Untied States is removed as a threat to tyranny, then the anti-Christ steps in to offer a solution to each of the ten global kingdoms. The “raiser of taxes” has global control for a very short time before it suffers economic failure! I will talk about the anti-Christ in the section called, “Fourth King: King Of Ten Horns, Little Horn, and Great Words (Anti-Christ).”
The three beasts are instrumental in the battles and serve under the reign of the anti-Christ, but will lose their authority after the anti-Christ is defeated! “I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.” Daniel 7:11-12 The three beasts include the Lion with the wicked heart of a man, the Bear with three ribs in its mouth, and the four headed leopard with four wings. The battles hinge on unrighteous aggression towards rebels of the New World Order; attacking unions not sanctioned by International Law which persecutes unions based on the Spirit of Christ and Godly help mate; and unrighteous policy-making that sanctions severe consequences for conscientious objectors but favors the mechanics of the system of the anti-Christ. Those mechanics include the god of knowledge that cleaves to the flesh of creation and computer chip technology. Both together forms the 666 and are present in our world today. NOW, let’s look at the battles, beginning with the United States’ great military victory and it’s quiet loss of power.
An Image of The United States Glory In Battle and Quiet Demise
This battle in Daniel 8 is very similar, really a perfect image, of the United States victory in World War 2. The United States has never reached that height of military valor again. In fact, Vietnam was an humiliating loss, and the U.S. has had frequent pull-outs from countries without any clear victory! The United States even purposes not to commit ground troops to foreign countries. Instead, they choose to win their battles by air and not to even touch the ground. In Daniel 8, it talks about a “He-goat” with a notable horn coming from between it’s eyes. “And as I was considering, behold, an he goat came from the west on the face of the whole earth, and touched not the ground: and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. And he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing before the river, and ran unto him in the fury of his power.” Daniel 8:5-6.
Well, the U.S. was definitely a notable powerhouse of Democracy, and was definitely notable as the one who dropped a massive hydrogen bomb on Hiroshima to end World War 2. “Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.” Daniel 8:8.
Before talking about the 4 notable replacements for the broken United States, let’s talk about the Ram with two horns whom the He-goat dropped the bomb on!
“Then I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and, behold, there stood before the river a ram which had two horns: and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher came up last. I saw the ram pushing westward, and northward, and southward; so that no beasts might stand before him, neither was there any that could deliver out of his hand; but he did according to his will, and became great.” Daniel 8:3-4 The Ram with the two horns is the same Ram that the He-goat totally demolished!
The two horns sound a lot like Hitler’s Germany and Japan! Hitler intended to conquer a lot of territory and probably had in mind world conquest! Hitler was pushing to the North, causing Russia to come against Hitler. Japan pushed towards the west as they bombed Pearl Harbor of the Untied States! Hitler pushed west himself towards Italy etc. The two horns of Germany and Japan were completely trampled on by the notable horn of the USA. “And I saw (the he-goat) come close unto the ram, and he was moved with choler against him, and smote the ram, and brake his two horns: and there was no power in the ram to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground, and stamped upon him: and there was none that could deliver the ram out of his hand.”
Now, let’s talk about what happened after the United States’ notable horn was broken! First, let me say that there is no way the United States would allow the anti-Christ to rule over the American people as long as the U.S. would have the power to defend against him! BUT, the spirit of the anti-Christ is very strong globally and is also strong within the borders of the U.S. The anti-Christ is very, very, strong with demonic powers over the flesh. “And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” Revelation 13:4
An ungodly America, in all its glory, cannot stand against the 666 without the Living God, the Message of the Cross of Christ Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. “Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven. And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land.” Daniel 8:8-9 When the powerhouse of democracy is broken, there is going to rise the anti-Christ. The four notable ones, that replace the democracy of the United States, go towards the 4 winds of heaven, suggesting the territory of the USA is now under the control of the New World Order! Which brings the USA territory under the rule of the anti-Christ.
We see the four beasts overcoming the United States in today’s times! And from those four beasts will rise the anti-Christ, IN AMERICAN TERRIRORY TOO! We all know the Lion with a man’s wicked heart is in the U.S. There is a lot of wicked aggression here, especially against what are called “conservatives.” Conservatives include those who have faith in the One True God, and live by what Christ has done for us on the Cross for the remission of sin, and welcomes the infilling of the Holy Spirit. Even in America, we see the Bear with the ribs in its mouth that attacks unions formed by the Spirit of Christ. That Bear demands that the 666 cleaves to our flesh and is our helper in all matters. Even in America, we see the four head Leopard with four wings making policy according to International Law of the New World Order, which ushers in the reign of the anti-Christ! Even in America, there is much conversation about today being the age of the anti-Christ.
Trouble For Israel Once United States is Broken
“Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.” Daniel 10:14 Daniel’s people are Jewish, therefore the battle to follow relates to some terrible things towards Israel that leads them to sign a peace accord with the anti-Christ! Very shortly, that peace accord is broken by the anti-Christ and Israel is severely persecuted. The scripture verse makes it clear that Israel will definitely suffer in the Great Tribulation and suffer the effects of the Battle of Armageddon. “Then said he, Know thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight with the prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo, the prince of Grecia shall come. Daniel 10:20 God’s Angel will fight the “prince of Persia,” Persia is modern day Iran which is part of the kingdom of the USSR by the ten kingdoms mandated by the NWO. When that battle goes forth, then the demonic prince of the west comes! At this time, the west cannot at all be associated with what was once the powerhouse of democracy, which was the United States! Yet, the demonic forces that now control the territory of the USA has control over military forces and all forms of wealth!
Again, remember that these battles pave the way for the rise of the “raiser of taxes,” who use tax dollars for the “glory” of the New World Order, to redistribute wealth to the ten global kingdoms. The anti-Christ does not seize power on the wings of military conquest, but comes in peaceably and with flatteries to fix the global economic collapse caused by the very short reign of the “raiser of taxes.” The economy under the anti-Christ will be a cashless society that requires all people to live by the 666, comprising the god of knowledge that cleaves to the flesh and the computer chip technology.
It is the demonic forces of the spirit of the anti-Christ that is at work in the world today to remove faith in the One True God, to oppress the Message of the Cross of Christ, and to oppose the presence of the Holy Spirit. While the “Glorious Land” will be occupied by invasion, it doesn’t necessarily mean that is THE anti-Christ. THE anti-Christ does not rely on military force until AFTER he comes to power by promising peace and with flattering words. After he seizes power, then he, plots against Israel, attacks them, seizes control over the “Holy Place,” and the abomination that makes desolate is in the Temple! Even today, the New World Order does not recognize Israel as a functioning part of the ten global kingdoms. They are merely referred to as the “Hebrew Land,” and everyday are pressured to conform to their surrounding territory known by the NWO as the “Arabian Federated Republics.”
Now, let’s look at the battles that usher in the “raiser of taxes.” Daniel has this vision in the first year of the reign of Darius, the third king. Daniel 11:3-4 is a brief summary of Daniel 8 referring to the United States glory and demise. “And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will. And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.” This notable horn, the United States, took a mighty stand against Hitler, Japan, and Italy, and the victory was glorious, but later the U.S. was broken and the kingdom divided among the ten global kingdoms of the world, which is happening today, but not according to democratic principles, and not according to faith in the One True God. In the January 2019 swearing in of the United States new congresswomen, two Muslims used the Quran to swear-in, one Democrat congresswoman refused to use the Holy Bible to swear in, instead used her State’s constitution. And another Democratic Socialist refused to swear-in using the Holy Bible!
Daniel 11:2 shares light on how the demise of the United States transpires. “And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia (Eastern demonic forces); and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia (Western Godly Nation of United States).” The first three kings of the east, such as Hitler, Japan, and Italy, was no match for the military powerhouse of the United States, but the components of the 4th king of today is the one responsible for the demise of the United States. The modern god of knowledge cleaves to human flesh to manipulate thought and behavior. It is not through military power that the notable horn of the U.S. is broken. The U.S. is broken by demonic strength and demonic love of riches that is rampant within the ten global kingdoms. The demonic spirit of the anti-Christ is alive in the world today through the god of knowledge that cleaves to the flesh! Demonic forces stirs up everyone, the whole world, against the United States by giving materialism, praise, and flattery liberally as rewards for those who come against everything that the Godly United States represents. For those who have a problem with that, the demonic forces uses the strength of the components of the 666 to coerce submission to the New World Order agenda. The components of the demonic 666 are in the world today, just waiting for the anti-Christ to come into full power to base all international law on the 666.
Today, in year 2019, Persia is modern day Iran, and Iran belongs to the kingdom called the “Union Of Soviet Socialists Republics (Commonwealth of Independent States.) The ten global kingdoms are mandated by the policies of the New World Order. The United States belongs to the kingdom called the “United States of America,” which includes Central America, Canada, and others. The border disputes, such as is happening at the United States and Mexico border, is the strength of the demonic forces forcing submission to the agenda to form the ten global kingdoms. The demonic forces are promising the migrants wealth and a better way of life if they crash the borders. We know how rebellious President Donald Trump is to abiding by international law and the agenda of the New World Order. Amazingly enough, the “raiser of taxes” would fall in line with the USSR, China, and such countries to the East. Actually, the United States and Israel are about the only two nations in the world that are fighting “tooth and nail” against the rise of the anti-Christ. All elements are set in place to facilitate the total demise of the United States as One Nation Under God, to begin the severe persecution of Israel, to facilitate the rise of the “raiser of taxes,” and ultimately submit global control to the reign of the anti-Christ!
The demonic spirit of the anti-Christ that exists strongly in our world today causes much conflict within the ten global kingdoms. Likewise, the reign of the anti-Christ through the system of the 666 also causes much human carnage. The anti-Christ’s manipulation of military power is chiefly associated with the Battle of Armageddon! His chief tactics come through political and interpersonal deception, plots, manipulation, god of knowledge, computer chip technology, political corruption, etc. That is Satan’s plan, to steal, kill, and destroy God’s creation by corrupting the spirit, soul, and flesh. It is especially Satan’s intent to destroy Israel within the Great Tribulation as well as to destroy those who follow Christ Jesus even before the Great Tribulation. Bottom line, the anti-Christ intends to destroy the Holy Covenant. At this point in Daniel Chapter 11, the United States no longer exists as One Nation Under God to uphold principles of democracy, and no longer brings encouragement and support to Israel. Even today, more than a handful of congressional leaders of the United States are Tweeting and using Facebook to state that Israel is a problem in the world that needs to be “conformed.”
Explanation Of The Battle Between The King Of The North and The King Of The South (Daniel 11)
Because of the military activity between the king of the South and the King of the North, 1) The “Glorious Land” is crushed and becomes occupied by the military presence of the king of the North, and 2) The “raiser of taxes” is able to come to power over the ten global kingdoms by replacing the king of the North. While the king of the South is very strong, the king of the North eventually is victorious, which contributes to a victory for globalism. Today, in the year 2019, globalism is the agenda of the New World Order. The “raiser of taxes” steps in after the victory of the king of the North. The “raiser of taxes” has a very short reign because of a failed global economy. At that point, the anti-Christ seizes power peaceably and with flatteries. I would say that at this time he solves Israel’s crisis of being overwhelmed with a foreign military occupation. The anti-Christ will solve that problem by offering Israel a peace treaty, which Israel will sign! Big Mistake for Israel. After a very short period of a few years, the anti-Christ breaks the peace treaty and begins to plot against Israel to totally annihilate her existence.
The king of the South interferes with the dominion of the king of the North, which in essence is interference with the globalism of the New World Order and the solidifying of the ten global kingdoms. If the South would of been successful, there would not of been a “raiser of taxes” to come to power, and would have totally changed the nature of the appearing of the anti-Christ! We have a picture of the character of the king of the South because of the three beasts that are used against him, which are the components of the anti-Christ. Those components are already functional in the world today, which includes most powerfully, the modern god of knowledge that cleaves to the flesh to manipulate thought and behavior. Soon, the anti-Christ will appear to put those components into full force, including the mandatory acceptance of the 666. This is what the king of the South would have coming against him; 1) The first beast: A multitude with the ferociousness of a lion and a heart as wicked as a human’s sinful heart., unmerciful like a bully pushing around a child. 2) The second beast: A multitude with the ferociousness of a bear with ribs in its mouth. This beast comes against the king of the South to destroy wholesome unions, contracts, alliances, and helpmates. The beast demands that only the components of the 666 is the help-mate and source of all alliances. 3) The third beast: The Leopard with four heads and four wings comes against the king of the South to pressure with laws and regulations based on international law, relating to the components of the 666. Battles against the rising system of the anti-Christ are illegal. 4) The fourth beast: The ferocious nature of the beast with iron teeth, the system of the anti-Christ, is held together by the fourth beast. That is what the New World order is driving towards, and the king of the South has the whole world against him, the modern god of knowledge is against him.
Daniel 11:5-9 describes the strength and character of the king of the South in his first victory over the king of the North. Remember, at this point the United States is no longer One Nation Under God because it has been given over to those who do not share the values of the Holy Bible, or the Declaration of Independence, or the U.S. Constitution. If there is any hope for a world free of the reign of the anti-Christ, it would come through governments like that of the king of the South. Let’s do this by the numbers;
1) vs 5 The king of the South will be strong and so will one of his princes. He will have a great dominion, meaning that his influence in the world is considerable.
2) vs 6 Towards the end of years, which is very near to the rise of the anti-Christ, the king of the South and his prince, will offer to make an agreement with the king of the North. This would be an honorable gesture with a noble spirit in wanting to build on the foundation of peace. However, we know how the Bear with the ribs in its mouth relates to forming unions and agreements with a Godly intent! That Bear devours those efforts even as the spirit of the anti-Christ has no regard for the desire of women. That is exactly what happened, and I will quote exactly from vs. 6; “…the king’s daughter of the South shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times.” Everyone involved in offering to make that agreement was totally “given up.” The Bear with the ribs in its mouth devoured them.
3) vs. 7 Although the Bear with the ribs in its teeth devoured the nobles of the king of the South, there was a branch that came from the king of the South, with just as much nobility. This generation of the noble king of the South rose up a powerful army, entered into the fortress of the king of the North and won! It might be added, even today we feel the powerful effects of the modern god of knowledge that has no respect for the Living God, oppresses the Message of the Cross of Christ, and opposes the appearance of the Holy Spirit. As the future progresses, we see how powerful entities will be present to rebel against the progression of the system of the anti-Christ.
4) vs. 8 The king of the South will plunder the territory of the king of the North, which is usually done to disable the functioning of an enemy. The king of the South will incapacitate the king of the North’s ability to worship anything, including the god of knowledge. The king of the South does that by incapacitating their government leaders and controlling their material resources. The king of the South continues in existence more years than the king of North. BUT, the back and forth battles continue until the king of the North has total victory, but is then replaced by the “raiser of taxes.” But, not before the king of the South becomes totally brutal and puffed up. The Bear with the ribs in its mouth causes that brutality by devouring honorable intentions. The modern god of knowledge uses that Bear to usher in the 666 to cleave to the flesh of humanity as the helpmate.
5) vs 9 After neutralizing the king of the North, the king of the South returns to his own home.
The king of the North recovers from its devastating loss to the king of the South, wages a battle against the king of the South, but loses once again. This time the king of the South is more brutal and puffed up than ever before! The king of the South lost its nobility and very soon will lose the war against the king of the North. Daniel 11: 10-12 explains this;
1) vs 10 The offspring, the following generations of the king of the North, are stirred up against the king of the South and vow revenge on the king of the South. This sounds very much like the atmosphere in the Mideast in today’s world! They assemble a multitude of great forces, overflow and enter into the fortress of the king of the South.
2) vs 11-12 Of course, the king of the south is very angry about this movement of aggression against their borders by the king of the North. Although the king of the North has placed a great multitude of forces in front of the king of South, the king of the South defeats their multitudes. The heart of the king of the South becomes puffed up and continues to slaughter many ten thousands, even though the victory has already been won. At this point, it is safe to say that the Bear with ribs in its mouth has gotten the victory over the king of the South by making that king very brutal and not noble at all. We are engaged in a spiritual warfare, so although the king of the South won an earthly battle, it has definitely lost the spiritual battle. Soon, the anti-Christ comes to power after the “raiser of taxes” comes to power, after the battle between the north and south is done.
Israel’s Involvement In the War Between The North and South
Daniel shows us the actions of Israel in battle just before the “raiser of taxes” comes to global power, which is just before the appearing of the anti-Christ! Here is Daniel 11:14, which refers to Israel in battle just before the “raiser of taxes” comes to power. “And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the robbers of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the Vision; but they shall fall.” Many will stand up against the king of the south, and we know that the king of the South is waging war against the demonic forces that pave a way for the appearing of the anti-Christ. This shows us how demonic the world has become! During this time, Israel is hoping for Daniel’s Vision to be fulfilled, which is the coming of their Messiah after much tribulation and oppression.
Israel’s participation in the Battle is in the capacity of adding to the chaos hoping this will usher in their Messiah. Israel exalts themselves, meaning that they are not “laying low” at all! At this time, the protesters and violent ones of Israel are involved in the overall conflict and unrest in the region. That rebellion will be crushed, and the king of the North defeats the king of the South. vs. 16 plainly says that at this time the king of the North will stand in the Glorious Land, totally consuming Israel’s territory. This military occupation of Israel is not THE anti-Christ, although it is is compelled by the demonic forces ushering in the anti-Christ. This gives the supporters of the anti-Christ more reason to proclaim their agenda of peace that totally rejects the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ. Soon after this military occupation of Israel, the anti-Christ will rise to offer Israel a peace agreement, which Israel signs, to their peril. Israel falls in this misguided rebellion because the return of Jesus Christ is the only act that will usher in the Kingdom of God.
3) vs. 13, 15-16 Says clearly that after total chaos breaks out in Israel and in all that region, the king of the North will once again return to fight against the king of the South. This time, the king of the North puts a stop to Israel’s rebellion by totally consuming the land with military occupation, and defeats the king of the South. This happens after some years after the previous slaughter of the king of the North at the hand of the king of the South. When the king of the North comes in total victory, they will have a multitude greater than ever before, with a great army, and with much riches.
4) vs. 17 shows us what the victory of the Bear with ribs in its mouth looks like. Recall, that this Bear lifts itself up on one side, just like Eve did when she was created to be Adam’s helpmate. But, this Bear is devouring the ribs, three of them, the three representing the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit on which all relationships, unions, and help-mates are to be based on. vs. 17 clearly says that the king of the North gives the king of the South the daughter of men, corrupting her, she refusing to stand on his side, refusing to be for him, refusing to be his help-mate! The god of knowledge cleaves to the flesh in our world today and is a component of the 666 to give the anti-Christ his power. The components of the 666 are in existence to serve the reign of the anti-Christ. It is at this time that the king of the North determines to enter with the WHOLE strength of his kingdom. This is when the raiser of taxes enters to seize power over the ten global kingdoms, just before the rise of THE anti-Christ.
“He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do: and he shall give him the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side, neither be for him.”
5) vs 18 The king of the North, which is laying the groundwork for the “raiser of taxes” to seize global control, is now setting his face towards the isles! This is after squashing the rebellion of Israel and defeating the king of the South. The king of the South was probably the last of the noble kingdoms within the world at this time. I prefer to think of the “Isles” as being those countries that are yet to conform to the modern god of knowledge and the progression of computer chip technology. In other words, in the power of the lion with the wicked heart of man, the bear with the three ribs in its mouth, and the leopards of four heads and fowl wings, the king of the North is conquering and mandating the acceptance of the components of the 666. After all, the anti-Christ appears very, very, soon after the conquests of the king of the North.
The invasions of the king of the North is very dirty work and could have some very negative feedback considering it’s oppression of Israel and it’s outright invasion of territory! BUT, the reproach of the king of the North is taken away by a prince, or government mediator. In other words, his princely public relations person smooths everything over. This is like the saying, “I’m rubber and you’re glue, everything you say about me bounces off me and sticks to you.” Israel and all the invaded countries are now bearing the reproach by being considered rebels, haters, bigots, etc. The king of the South would definitely have a very heavy share of the reproach thrown into their face!
vs 18 “After this shall he turn his face unto the isles, and shall take many: but a prince for his own behalf shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause it to turn upon him.”
6) vs 19 is very interesting, which says, “Then (the king of the North) shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.” When he faces towards his own land, he stumbles and falls, and is no longer a formidable factor within the ten global kingdoms. Because in the next verse the “raiser of taxes” assumes global control over the ten kingdoms, we can assume that the king of the North made a wreck of the global economy. We have to realize, the components working in our present world are becoming even more powerful at this time. Today, we know that unless the god of knowledge has first priority, then negative consequence plague a person. Such as faith in the Living God, followers of the Message of the Cross of Christ, and the presence of the Holy Spirit attracts harsh and bitter negative feedback! Apparently, and as to be expected, the demonic forces are not going to recognize any ruler of the world until the anti-Christ has complete control of the kingdoms of this world.
7) vs 20-21 I will put these two verses together because the only thing ever said about the “raiser of taxes” is said in verse 20, which simply states that it replaces the king of the North. It raise taxes for the glory of the ten global kingdoms, which ends up being a disaster causing the collapse of the global economy. “Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.” Next, Satan and all the demonic forces finally get what they want, the rise to power of the anti-Christ! Under the anti-Christ, there is more human carnage, persecution, destruction, and death, than anyone would ever believe is possible to endure. This will bring the total undoing and destruction of evil by the return of the Lord Jesus Christ. “And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.”
This essay has taken you through the demise of the United States as One Nation Under God, the Battles between the North and South, the rise to power of the raiser of taxes, and the rise of the anti-Christ.
One thing that Socialists and Communists demand is absolutely loyalty to their governing powers. That means that they demand that loyalty to the Living God be stopped. It also means that people cannot change their mind about their allegiance to their governing policies, which means that what Christ did for us on the Cross for the remission of sin is oppressed. Likewise, the infilling of the Holy Spirit requires our absolute loyalty to God’s guidance, so they oppose the presence of the Holy Spirit. The anti-Christ comes to power after the “raiser of taxes” fails and after the One Nation Under God is rendered powerless. While the “raiser of taxes” is driven by demonic forces, Israel will suffer greatly as the global system changes to conform to the soon coming 666. The anti-Christ will enter peaceably and with flatteries, offering Israel a peace agreement, and giving the world every reason to abide by his rule. But, as we learn later, the anti-Christ honors the god of force and betrays the treaties he makes, and severely persecutes Israel and everyone else who does not pay allegiance to the 666.
