Scripture: Daniel 7:23-25
Daniel 7:24,25 states, “The ten horns are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones, And shall subdue three kings. He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.” The interpretation of this passage that is most prominent in our generation is that the church will be completely overwhelmed for three and one half years. It is interesting that this passage also mentions that one king shall arise out of the ten horns and subdue three. One thing we can all agree on is that something monumental happens during this three and one half year period. A Judge is seated in heaven. During this process the church is paying the price to fill the cup that brings the utter destruction of one very antichrist individual, the culmination of the Kingdom is realized. It is not necessarily a period of great defeat. But it can actually be one where the church is manifesting the victory of the witnesses – that would be more than exciting. It is possible that while we have spent much time looking for a single individual antichrist to fulfill all Scripture, another option could unfold. What if many antichrists may already be at work fulfilling some of what is prophesied? If that is a possibility, we need to take another look at the justice of God that we should be representing as we swing the Sword of the Spirit.
