We come to life to the last prophecy recorded in the book of Daniel. In this last prophecy actually encompasses three chapters, chapters 10, 11 and 12 as we saw last week. Chapter 10 is really the introductions of the prophecy and the prophecy doesn't actually start until chapter 11, but in chapter 10 we find out that Daniel was fast and that he was praying for three weeks and that an angel was sent from God to deliver this prophecy to Daniel and the angel left heaven on the day that Daniel began to pray, but it took him three weeks to reach Daniel because of the opposition of tannic messengers called the Prince of Persia and the Prince of Greece was another one that was yet to come. But the Prince of Persia withheld this angel.

Finally, the angel was able to reach Daniel and he delivers this prophecy that we begin with beginning in chapter 11 now the date of this prophecy in Daniel chapter 11 is found in chapter 10 verse one that is in the third year of Cyrus the king of Persia. This means that the prophecy was delivered to Daniel in 536 BC, the first year of Cyrus was 539 BC. And so, where 536 BC. We want to look at this prophecy tonight. We will not be able to cover it all, were not even going to try but were gonna look at the first half of it tonight and will finish by looking at the last half, Lord willing. Next week, begin by looking at the prophecy as a whole. The prophecy has a beginning point and it has an ending point. They will help us properly interpret vis--vis the profit the if we know the beginning and the ending point, the beginning point of the prophecy we find in verse two it says. I tell you the truth. Chapter 11 verse two, three more kings will appear in Persia after Cyrus was presently of course on the throne. So the prophecy begin with the Persian Empire and with the three kings that are to arise after your Cyrus the great that is the beginning of the prophecy. Now the ending of the prophecy we find goes all the way to the end of the age and extends all the way to the return of Christ.

If you flip over to chapter 12 you'll find in verse one it says at that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people will arrive and there will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until there were obviously talking about the tribulation.

Skip down to verse two. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake, some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Sore after return of Christ in the first resurrection. If you look at chapter 12 verse 10 we find that the Bible says that that that many will be purified and made thoughtless and refined. Verse 11 for from the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be one half thousand 290 days and no.

If you look in chapter 12, you find at the end of this parable includes the tribulation.

The abomination of desolation, which in Matthew 24 Jesus said would come at the end of the age and the rapture. The first resurrection after return of Christ.

And so we got the beginning of the pair of the prophecy at the time of Cyrus the great in the Persian Empire and the end of the prophecy going all the way to the tribulation. And the end of the eight what that means is that somewhere in this prophecy.

We should expect to see a great leap in time. In other words, somewhere in this prophecy. We will leave off dealing with events that have already happened in the past and we will skip ahead events that are now still future commentators argue as to where that break occurred. There are some commentators who believe that that break occurs between verse four and verse five that at the end of verse four we see having history from our vantage point today and we begin having futuristic prophecy from our vantage point today. I personally don't agree with that understanding of the chapter. The more common view and the one that I think is correct is that between verse 35 in verse 36 is where that leave in time occurred that open to verse 35 the first 35 verses of chapter 11 are describing historical event that culminated in the second century BC, with a ruler of Syria named Antiochus Tiffany say who I'll tell you, and that then after the second century BC fall of Antiochus epiphanies and about 105 BC. Suddenly there is a break in the prophecy and the next person which we pick up verse 36 we have jumped all the way down until the end time and were no longer dealing with Antiochus Tiffany's were not dealing with the antichrist who is in many respects life Antiochus epiphanies, but of course is the antichrist and I favor that approach and that's the approach I'm going to take to the chapter and I'll explain to you why. As we move along. Now let's look at verses 1 to 35 will begin actually. In verse two. Now that I tell you the truth. Read more kings will appear in Persia and therefore who will be far richer than the other. When he is gained power by his well he will stir up everyone against the kingdom of Greece that a mighty king will appear who will rule with great power will do as he pleases. And after he has appeared in his Empire will be broken often parceled out toward the four winds of the heaven it will not go to his descendent, nor will it have the power that he exercise because his empire will be uprooted and given to other the King of the South will become strong and one of his commanders will become even stronger than he, and will rule his own kingdom with great power. After some years they will become allies and the daughter of the King of the South will go to the king of the North to make an alliance, but you will not retain her power and he and his power will not last. In those days she will be handed over together with her royalist escort and her father and the one who supported her one from her family line will arrive at your place. He will attack the forces of the king of the north and enter his fortress. He will fight against them and be victorious. He will also seize their gods, their metal images and their valuable articles of over in goal and carry them off to Egypt for some years. He will leave the king of the North alone. Then the king of the North will invade the realm of the king of the South but will retreat to his own country, his sons will prepare for war and assemble a great army which will sweep on like an irresistible flood and carry the battle as far as his fortress. Verse 11 then the king of the South will march out in a rage and fight against the king of the North who will raise a large army, but it will be defeated with the Army is carried off the king of the South will be filled with pride and will slaughter many thousands that he will not remain triumphant for the king of the North will muster another Army larger than the first, and after several years he will advance with a huge army fully equipped.

Verse 14. In those times, many will rise against the king of the cell. The violent men among your own people rebel in fulfillment of the vision, but without success.

Then the king of the North will come and build up these ramps and will capture a fortified city.

The forces of the South will be powerless to resist even their best troops will not have the strength to stand. Verse six Dean the invader will do as he pleases. No one will be able to stand against you. He will establish himself in the beautiful land that he will have the power to destroy, he will determine to come with the might of his entire kingdom that will make an alliance with the king of the cell and he will give him a daughter in marriage in order to overthrow the kingdom but is lands will not six then he will turn his attention to the coastlands and will take any of them for the commander will put an end to his insolence and will turn his insolence back upon him. After this he will turn his back towards the fortresses of his own country, but will tumble and fall to be seen no more.

Verse 20 is successor will send out a tax collector to maintain the royal splendor in a few years. However, he will be destroyed yet not in anger in battle, he will be succeeded by a contemptible person who is not been given the honor of Royal and he will invade the kingdom. When it's people feel secure and you will seize it doing three then an overwhelming army will be swept away before him. Both hits and a Prince of the covenant will be destroyed after coming to an agreement with him. He will act deceitfully and with only a few people he will rise to power. Verse 24, when the richest provinces feel secure. You will invade them and will achieve what neither his father nor his forefathers did.

He will distribute plunder removed and wealth among his followers he will plot the overthrow of fortresses, but only for time verse 25 with a large army.

He will stir up his grace and courage against the king of the cell. The king of the South will wage war with a large and powerful army, but he will not be able to stand because of the plot divides against those who read from the king's provisions will try to overthrow him. His army will be swept away in many will fall in battle. The two kings with their hearts that own evil will sit at the same table and live to each other, but to no avail. And the king of the North will return to his own country would great well but his heart will be set against the holy covenant and he will take action against it and return to his own country, and at the appointed time, you will invade the South again but this time the outcome will be different from what it was before ship of the Western coastlands will oppose him and he will lose heart.

Then he will turn back and vent his fury against the holy covenant. He will return and show favor to those who forsake the holy covenant is Armed Forces verse 31 will rise up to desecrate the temple fortress and will abolish the daily sacrifice they will set up the abomination that causes desolation with flattery.

He will corrupt those who have violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist in verse 33. Those who are wise will instruct many vote for time they will fall by the sword or be burned or captured or plundered when they fall they will receive little help. Many who are not sincere will join them. Some of the wise will stumble so that they may be refined, verified inmates until the time of the end for it. It will still come at an appointed time you say good night. What in the world is going on will as you can see the prophecies fairly intricate.

You can see it's fairly involved in the details of these first 35 verses describe the history of the nares for the 400 years after Daniel down to 164 BC. These details are so incredibly accurate when compared to the history of that. That this is what prompted critics to begin accusing the book of Daniel, of being a forgery. This all began in the first century A.D. with a fellow named porphyry. He was a heathen philosopher, but he began studying Daniel chapter 11 and when he studied it and compared it to his three.

He was so awed by how credibly accurate the predictions of Daniel 11 were to the real history of the nares for the 400 years after Daniel that he concluded that nothing so precise could have possibly been predicted ahead of time and therefore instead of assuming that it was the living God, who gave this revelation instead. He said no it was not.

It was a man riding in 164 bit ADD of VC rather after all of this could happen.

Writing history not prophecy, and therefore of course it could've been Daniel wrote this is become the standard liberal interpretation of this chapter in the whole book of Daniel. Ever since now we know the living God. We don't buy this. We understand this office that it wasn't that Daniel understood what was going to happen with the living God on the good what was going to happen and he revealed that the Daniel and and and and the fact that unsaved man and unredeemed man studies this and finds it so incredibly accurate that they can't believe any man could have written it only points to the fact that this is the living God working through the lives of men and women giving revelation that indeed no man could ever known himself with the living God. Now in these verses I read for you.

John Wahlberg says there are hundred and 35 prophetic statement, all of which have been fulfilled, and I thought it be really great force and I to go through all hundred and 35 of them and look at him five order Domino's it will be here in about 15 minutes. Words could have a pizza party and settling to go to 104 35 prophecies to my Woody thing. No no, all right. Well, I'm just teasing out in order Domino's and were knocking to do 135 of them tonight we are going to do tonight is to take simply to two example of prophecy from this chapter that show the tremendous accuracy of this of this prophetic statement of this prophetic chapter not you want to go through all hundred and 35. I invite you to do that in my advise you to pick up John Wahlberg's book. Daniel, the key to prophetic revelation and that he takes you through all hundred and 35. You can read it at your leisure and that would be great, but were not going to do that tonight.

I want to just give you two example the first example is found in verses 2 to 4 and in verses 2 to 4. We have 200 years of world history accurately predicted by Daniel. Daniel is told verse to that three kings will follow Cyrus the great and then that there will be 1/4 king, who will be richer than all the other when he is gained power. He will stir up everyone against the kingdom of Greece.

This is what Daniel said let's look at history and see if this happens, living through the overhead. You see, I've begun with Cyrus the great Cyrus the great was followed by three rulers can be a season you can see his date of fairness and you can his days, and Darius the first to rule from 521, two, 486 BC. Three kings followed Cyrus the great. That's what the books for Daniel then goes on to say that there will be 1/4 king who would see when he is consolidated his power will stir up all of his empire against grief. Now Darius the first actually decided to invade Greece. He was defeated at the Battle of Marathon in 400 and 9D BC and he went back to Persia and was so enraged that he lost to the Greeks that he decided he was going to gather a bigger army and go back again, but he died before he could do it, and his son Xerxes at all with an X. Xerxes, the first came to the throne.

As you can see he ruled from 480 6465 BC and Xerxes took it upon himself to carry out his father Darius's grand vision of re-invading Greece and this time winning Xerxes ruled over Persia in what has to be known as the Golden age of the Persian Empire at the time of the Persian Empire reached the zenith it was richer and more powerful and more world dominating that at any other time than it was before or than it would be asked your Xerxes. That's why the book of Daniel Smith that he, the fourth king would be far richer than all the other and he was an Xerxes collected an army to go back to Greece. As a matter of fact were told by secular historians that is looking for years to collect the Army from all over his empire so incredibly large was disarming when he had collected it 480 BC he marched on Greece when he marched on Greece. At first he had great success. He entered Macedonia, which is in the northern part of Greece, and he marched down towards the South he met up with a bunch of Spartans. However, the past, named of some of you may were no it Thermopylae.

Thank you Richard theirs are missionaries and respect their at a place called Thermopylae, there was a very small group of martins. There and it was a very narrow path to the mountain and because it was so narrow this very small group of Spartans was able to hold off the entire Persian army for several days. However, a trader shows the Persian army the way around the mountain of that they could out like these are they eventually were able to do that, they were able to break through and get five Thermopylae and Xerxes marched and actually took Aston. He burned Athens to the ground and after he had succeeded in burning Athens to the ground.

He marched on toward Sparta.

In the meantime, however, the Greek Navy engaged his Navy. Adam, one of the most famous naval battles in history, the battle of Salamis and at the battle of Salamis, the Persian fleet was was utterly crushed and defeated by a smaller but more mobile grief for it was, like the Spanish Armada where the Persian ships were bigger and mightier but the Greek ships were smaller and more maneuverable, and they were able to outflank and destroy the Persian fleet with no fleet. Xerxes could not possibly continue the campaign he was forced to retire. He was forced to go back to Persia and as a result of that. He never returned to Greece and the Persian Empire. Never again would be the kind of power that had been amassed during the reign of Xerxes.

That's what the Bible says it says if you look at chapter 11 verse two that this great king would store off everyone against the kingdom of Greece is exactly what he did. Now one of the lasting results of Xerxes attack on Greece and burning of Afton is that he incurred the undying hatred of the Greek, they hated the Persian and they never forgot they never forgot the Persian bid to the land of Greece, like yourself, you know you go down the Mississippi or Alabama and they still talk about Yankees and revel in it that there's the pistol fighting the Civil War down there is most incredible thing ever saw, and they have never forgiven the North for what they did. That was 100 years ago more but I still haven't forgiven the North for what they do, where the Greeks were and when Alexander the great rose almost 100 years later and marched through the nares.

He took Persia capture the capital city of Persia demolished the Persian Empire, and he made it absolutely clear that he was paying back the Persian for what they had done degrees over 100 years before that the Greek never forgot. And verse three talks about Alexander. It says that a mighty king will appear who will rule with great power and do as he pleases talking about Alexander and after he has appeared, his empire will be broken up and will be parceled out toward the four win of heaven. If you remember from Daniel chapter 8, I told you that Alexander the great. Six needed in conquering the entire Persian Empire.

He crushed them and then he marched on to India. When he got as far as India and truth rebelled and refused to go any farther and so we had to come back to Babylon where he died in 323 BC when he died. Alexander had to children actually had one son and his concubine Roxana was pregnant with a line when he died with the child who would become his second son born path humorously after Alexander had actually God. If you look at verse four says that his empire will be parceled off toward the four winds of heaven. It will not go to his senses Alexander's oldest son Hercules, whose mother was Garcinia was murder. We don't know who did it. We feel pretty strongly. It was one of his four general I'll tell you why in a minute.

His younger son who was born path humorously by Roxana Alexander Junior I guess what they called them was murdered when he became a teenager, presumably to keep him from consolidating power and taking power away from the generals with enough Alexander's empire just as the Bible said Alexander the great had to son. However, neither one of them inherited his empire who God well as I told you we study chapter 8 Alexander's empire was split off in four directions of the compass by his for Maj. Gen. like chemicals took the North that is Asia minor.

Ptolemy took the South that is you jump solutions took the ease that is Syria and Babylon and Cassandra took the West that is Greece and they split off his empire. According to the four points of the compass and they were probably the ones who were responsible for murdering his son left his son arrive and take away the power that they had as a result of putting up the Empire notice. The Bible goes on to say his empire will not go to his descendents, nor will it have the power that he exercise and we know of course, from history that once they had split the empire of four ways. Never again was the Greek empire.

Anything even close to what it was when Alexander ruled the whole thing never did achieve that kind of power or glory again and the Bible says his empire will be uprooted and will be given to us exactly what happened and so here in the first four verses of this chapter, we have 400 G.I. rather 200 years of near Eastern history accurately describe to an incredible degree. Now I'm not good at that. That that's maybe we just did. Maybe 15 or 20 were the lead out 80 or so in the middle am going to go to the end of this section so we can look at the second and last example of what I want to show you in terms of the historical accuracy of this process. Chapter 11 verse 21 it says that he will be succeeded by a can comfortable person a vile person who was not given the honor of Port Royal here. All of a sudden you'll have to take my word for we move down the corridors of time, and now we are almost 100 years after the rise and fall of Alexander back for almost 200 years after that and we are now focusing on the kingdom of Syria solutions has taken the kingdom of theory of the general had and is established design is called the Seleucid dynasty, and out of that dynasty rose a fellow named Antiochus.

He nicknamed himself epiphany epiphanies come from a Greek word epiphany. Many of you see the Church of the Epiphany balance lies idea what it meant. I've seen it never really made that much difference to me to even ask. Well if Tiffany comes from a Greek word meaning glorious and so Antiochus gave himself the nickname Gloria. No, not exactly what you call humble guy thought Sarai, he nicknamed himself glorious and so that's what Antiochus epiphanies means Antiochus was his name epiphanies was the title that he gave will he was a king who arose in the jury in section of the old Alexander and empire and he had rule.

He was the king over Syria and Babylon. He was a relatively obscure ruler, but he figures very prominently here in Daniel 11 for two reasons. Number one, it calls him a vile person in this verse. It calls him a detestable person. And the reason the Bible calls in that is because he desecrated the land of Israel, and he was a ray for of the land of Israel, such as no one before him had ever done. Secondly, in his role as a ray for of the land of Israel. He represents a type or a forerunner of the antichrist and the kind of desecration of Israel that the antichrist will carry out in the last day in here Daniel Chapter 11 predicts the details of the career of Antiochus epiphanies with amazing precision. Let me show you that verse 21 says that he was not part of royalty, but he obtained his kingdom by entry or by flattery. Antiochus was not part of the royal family of the king of Syria. He weaseled his way in and took over the throne after the King had God. We know that from history. Skip down to verse 23 it says in verse 23 that he will become strong with only a few people the kingdom of Syria was not large.

It was not mighty and yet Antiochus rose to an incredible position of power in the near East. In spite of the fact that the kingdom he rule was very small. Just as the Bible says he will rise to power with a very small number of people 25 with a large army. He will stir up his strength and his courage against the king of the cell and the King of the South will raise more with a very powerful army, but he will lose we know as a fact that in 170 BC Antiochus event invaded Egypt, the King of the South and is light of the fact that the Egyptian army was much larger than the army of Antiochus Egyptians law. They lost at the battle of Ross their own in the Sinai desert. They were crushed as a matter-of-fact and just as the Bible says the king of the nor the king of the North this Antiochus epiphanies attack King of the South Egypt anyone. Verse 27 it says the two kings with their heartfelt own evil will sit at the same table and live to each other and we know from history that Antiochus epiphanies sat down with the king of Egypt and they try to come up with a peace treaty, but the historians recorded they were both such liars. There was no way they could even come up with a peace treaty verse 29, and at the appointed time he Antiochus will invade the South again but this time the outcome will be different from what it was before it was we know that two years later in 106 eight BC Antiochus invaded Egypt again.

But were not the way they had been before because a new power had appeared on the scene you find it in verse 30 in verse 30 it says ships from the western coast land will oppose him and he will lose our wood Antiochus epiphanies invaded Egypt the second time in 100 C8 BC Egypt in the intervening two years has struck up a treaty with Rome and there were Roman fruit that had come to Egypt and 168 BC results this time were not going to be like the results. The first time never conquering Egypt again look with the Bible for says when you left. He was not a happy camper. Chapter 11 verse 30 and he says then he Antiochus will turn back and he will then jewelry against the holy covenant. Antiochus furious and his defeat in Egypt and he seems to have turned his glory upon Israel.

The Bible says that he will turn his jewelry upon the holy covenant in verse 31 goes on to say that his Armed Forces will rise up and desecrate the temple and will abolish the daily sacrifice and will set up the abomination that causes desolation that we know both from Jewish history and secular history that Antiochus epiphanies headed north out of the Sinai away from Egypt, fearing the Roman and when he went to Palestine when he went to the land of Canaan. He took all of his jewelry out on the Jew. He marched into Jerusalem. We know this from the book of first and second Maccabees that record the five he marched into Jerusalem he marched into the temple area stop the sacrifice killed the priest at the altar, he took off. A.

Any sacrifice a pig on the altar in the holy of holies in the Temple in Jerusalem. Now you know as well as I do. First of all, that no one was even allowed into the holy of holies with the high priest and Antiochus went in there and then of all the things that you could sacrifice on the altar in the holy of holies to polluted what could you sacrifice that would polluted more than 88 that's what he did. He also set up the abomination of desolation in the temple. What was well. We know from historical records that when he did that often the holy of holies was a statue of Zeus, the head of the Greek pantheon.

Anyplace is right in the holy of holy he would forbid the worship of God anymore and he turned the holy of holies into a Temple of Zeus. This is what is led many people to believe that when the Antichrist sets up the abomination of desolation in the tribulation. It will actually be a statue of himself. Second Thessalonians 2 says that he will require that the world worship him as God. Many people have said what he what the abomination of desolation is, is a statue not of Zeus but of the Antichrist himself set up in the holy of holies in the third Temple which will be rebuilt in Jerusalem and he will demand worship given to him not to Almighty God, is that right or wrong. I don't know on the repot but Antiochus set up a statue of Zeus in the holy of holies stop the sacrifice, which is what it says here in verse 31 and he cut off all worship of God. Verse 32 with flattery. He will corrupt those were violated the covenant, but the people who know their God will firmly resist him. Many of you have heard of the Maccabean revolt in Jewish history. It occurred right at this time when a man named Judith Maccabeus arose and led a revolt against Antiochus. There were thousands of Jews that revolted. There were several wars that were fought the Maccabean wars if you want some interesting history. You can pick up a copy of the apocryphal and read first Maccabees 2nd Maccabees and it will tell you all about the Maccabean wars were under the leadership of Judith Maccabeus Jews fought against Antiochus for a number of years and the Bible says verse 33 that many of them will fall by the sword and will be burned and will be captured and will be plundered and that was true and when they fall. Verse 34 says they won't receive much help at all. That was true.

There was no one to stand with, but they did succeed in throwing off the yoke of Antiochus epiphanies.

They did succeed in driving him out of the land and eventually he was defeated he got so once again, Daniel 11 predict the history of the ancient of the near East around Antiochus epiphanies with remarkable accuracy, here we come to the end of the first section, verse 35 were suddenly now we jump thousands of years down through history to the end time were suddenly were not talking about Antiochus epiphanies anymore were talking about the antichrist. You understand.

I hope that the reason Antiochus epiphanies appears as a central character here is because of the similarities between what he did to Jerusalem and what the antichrist is going to do to Jerusalem.

The antichrist is going to desolate Jerusalem cut off the offerings and the sacrifices Daniel chapter 9 set up the abomination of desolation in the wing of the temple.

Daniel chapter 9. He is going to be in many respects a carbon copy of what Antiochus did to the Jews, except that he will be so much worse so much worse. The Jews will not be able to defeat him. Only the return of Jesus Christ personally will be able to accomplish that in the chapter goes on to talk about this and into chapter 12 and this is what we want to talk about as we conclude our study of Daniel next civil law and what is it that we can learn from our study tonight. I believe that what we can learn is that the living God is able to predict the future just wasted. I think of what we learn is that the living God through the truth of what he said in Isaiah 46 says this I am the Lord, and there is none other declaring the end from the beginning and declaring from ancient times, things that have not yet have an and what greater example of that.

We have been Daniel 11, where God credible accuracy declare things that have not yet happened when history worked its way out. They have to just the way constantly. The way I see it that this is great proof great substantiation. If God is got all this right is going to get the rest of his life. He got the first half of Daniel 11 right last him right is no reason to think you would so I like to close with the words from all over to my quote he said the accuracy of this prophetic section is supporting evidence that prophecy yet unfulfilled will have the same precise fulfillment. The future as prophecy that has had historical fulfillment already say I think that life that means involving 1/2 and exactly what Jesus said to have and you know it's always difficult to figure out prophecy when you looking forward but I'm convinced that it's all over. Maybe we'll all be sits in heaven, they won't have much to do that day to garment julep sit around in our Clausen would pull out.

Daniel 11. We pull out the Bible and will be able to leave through and say it not amazing. You know, I can still remember we went those services and want talk on Daniel and he got some of it right. Not all of it right but you didn't need it and need how God did every single exactly got into every single piece of exactly what he said he would and the fact that you and I can't put it all together exactly imperfectly the matter involving happened exactly what God says it doesn't make it happen. Wasted and I thank God for his word and these things also give me great encouragement not just about prophecy but about everything that when Jesus said to be absent from the bodies to be present with the Lord is right that when Jesus said he believes on me has internalized dry said I go to prepare a place for you and if I go to prepare a place I'll come back yet.

You will be Brian K. Jesus can get all this prophecy right and I say some brothers certainly get all of his predictions about were muscles going as a believer in Christ.

So I leave here tonight feeling a tremendous sense of confidence in the word of God, and I hope you do too. I believe one of the reasons God gave us prophecy is as a way of affirming to our hearts so that there's no doubt that everything he says here exactly right.

Praise Lord for this means lost one died and gone on ahead of you who know Christ means you gonna go to heaven is means everything in the book is right, and I hope that you will build your life on the book to build your children's life on the book grandchildren's life. The book you family the book. The book stand the test of time and always has received from Daniel 11, always with thank you father that we could meet tonight and we could your word openly.

The really in a land such as ours. Thank you for the tremendous encouragement of Daniel 11. We've only touched it. Lord, on the surface we just scratched the theory theory tip of the iceberg. Tonight and it even what we've done tonight is given us great confirmation in our hearts and our souls told us the truth. Your word father I want to thank you that you have not tried to hide from us was going to happen in the future, nor have you tried to hide from us, Lord Jesus was going to happen to us individually. We leave this planet is the Lord Jesus I pray that everyone of us here will trusted Christ as our Lord and our Savior because you promised us that those of us who do see you and live with you in heaven for all eternity public believe that Lord help us not consider that legend that Lord Jesus give us a deep and abiding confidence in the veracity and the trustworthiness of the word of God, help us to build our lives and our destinies and even our family and our children will reply upon the book that you've given us the word of God dismisses now with your blessing Lord send us out if we could tell others about Christ. When they ask us how we can be so sure. Lord Jesus, help us to point them to a book that has stood the test of time and is trustworthy. We pray these things in Jesus name, amen
