Part X – The Prophetic Sequence



Doug Krieger


“That Day will not come unless the APOSTASIA (“The Apostasy”) comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition . . . and then the lawless one will be revealed . . . the coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders . . . (II Thessalonians 2:3, 8-9)


“And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise, having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes.  His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; he shall destroy extraordinarily and shall prosper and thrive; he shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people.


Through cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; and he shall exalt himself in his heart, and by peace he shall destroy many.  He shall even rise against the Prince of Princes; but he shall be broken without human means.”  (Daniel 8:23-25)


“In his place shall arise a vile person . . . he shall come in peaceably, and seize the kingdom by intrigue . . . THE PRINCE OF THE COVENANT . . . after the league is made with him he shall act deceitfully . . . he shall enter peaceably, even into the richest places . . .” (Daniel 11:21, 22b, 23a, 24a)




These mysterious adumbrations revealed in the above passages bespeak of a time yet future.  The Seleucid Prince, Antiochus Epiphanes IV (175 to 163 B.C.), gave himself the auspicious name, “God is Manifest” (Epiphanes) but his foes called him Epimanes—the “Madman.”  This “Prince of the Covenant” becomes the archetype of the Man of Sin, the Lawless One, the ultimate Antichrist who shall prevail upon the many with cunning and deceit and thereby, during the time when the transgressors shall reach their fullness, this stern-faced Son of Perdition, who understands sinister schemes, will, with military prowess as the Willful King, accomplish extraordinary fetes—the greatest of which, no doubt, will be his yet-to-be celebrated comprehensive peace initiative.


This cunning deceiver—who contends with the Prince of Princes—whose heartfelt pomposity can only be matched by an oxymoronic peace which destroys; for by his peace he shall destroy many, even the people of the covenant!


“What the United States decides is conclusive in the Middle East; there’s no other power in the world that can come close.  The U.S. government has, with the very brief exception of a week in Taba, just blocked any steps toward a sensible political settlement of the Arab-Israeli conflict, almost unilaterally Israel has too, but Israel is limited in what it can do; it can’t go much beyond the conditions that the United States establishes.  And as long as Washington continues to give colossal military, diplomatic, ideological, media, and other support for Israeli expansion, I don’t think anything’s going to happen.” (Noam Chomsky, Perilous Power, The Middle East and U.S. Foreign Policy, 2007).


The anything to which Chomsky alludes is the comprehensive peace solution defined by President Bush on June 24, 2002 (The U.S. Invasion of Iraq took place on March 20, 2003.) and affectionately entitled:  The Roadmap to Peace.


“I've said in the past that nations are either with us or against us in the war on terror. To be counted on the side of peace, nations must act. Every leader actually committed to peace will end incitement to violence in official media, and publicly denounce homicide bombings. Every nation actually committed to peace will stop the flow of money, equipment and recruits to terrorist groups seeking the destruction of Israel -- including Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Hezbollah. Every nation actually committed to peace must block the shipment of Iranian supplies to these groups, and oppose regimes that promote terror, like Iraq. And Syria must choose the right side in the war on terror by closing terrorist camps and expelling terrorist organizations.


“Leaders who want to be included in the peace process must show by their deeds an undivided support for peace. And as we move toward a peaceful solution, Arab states will be expected to build closer ties of diplomacy and commerce with Israel, leading to full normalization of relations between Israel and the entire Arab world.” (USINFOSTATE.GOV, President Bush Calls for New Palestinian Leadership, June 24, 2002)


Someone must step forward and construct a final plan which, after six major wars between Arab states, along with sundry Islamic allies like Iran, and Israel, once and for all will bring peace to the Middle East.


“I can understand the deep anger and despair of the Palestinian people. For decades you've been treated as pawns in the Middle East conflict. Your interests have been held hostage to a comprehensive peace agreement that never seems to come, as your lives get worse year by year. You deserve democracy and the rule of law. You deserve an open society and a thriving economy. You deserve a life of hope for your children. An end to occupation and a peaceful democratic Palestinian state may seem distant, but America and our partners throughout the world stand ready to help, help you make them possible as soon as possible.


“We must also resolve questions concerning Jerusalem, the plight and future of Palestinian refugees, and a final peace between Israel and Lebanon, and Israel and a Syria that supports peace and fights terror.” (Ibid.)


Make no mistake about it—it is the leadership of this one nation—and this one nation alone, who shall gather the parties around his table to conclude the elusive comprehensive peace accord . . . especially when it is cloaked in the verbiage of the Prince of the Covenant . . . for he assumed both the role as High Priest through subterfuge, as well as guardian of Israel through civil enforcement . . . 

“This moment is both an opportunity and a test for all parties in the Middle East: an opportunity to lay the foundations for future peace; a test to show who is serious about peace and who is not. The choice here is stark and simple. The Bible says, ‘I have set before you life and death; therefore, choose life.’ The time has arrived for everyone in this conflict to choose peace, and hope, and life.” (President George W. Bush, Ibid.)




During our journey through the Prophetic Scenario we have highlighted scores of eschatological consequences—consequences which, when taken in their prophetic scope, commit us to the following imminent prophetical pronouncements:


(1)     The “Oracle of Damascus” – This seventh, and climactic war, declares (from Isaiah 17 and Zechariah 9) the demise of Syria, Lebanon, and the Palestinian Authority, and ipso facto the terminus of “THE END OF THE WAR” mentioned in Daniel 9:26 (i.e., The “Arab-Israeli Conflict”).


(2)     The disillusionment of secular Zionism as a viable force—i.e., “In that day it shall come to pass that the glory of Jacob will wane (fade), and the fatness of his flesh grow lean” (Isaiah 17:4).


(3)     The subsequent revival (“in that day a man will look to his Maker”—Isaiah 17:7a) among the Arab nations surrounding Israel—and the immediate awakening within Zion of the Holy One’s intervention into their affairs (Isaiah 17:3b, 7-8) in preparation of Israel’s role in the context of Revelation 11 and the Two Witnesses (i.e., the Two Olive Trees).


(4)     The MAN OF PEACE shall, at the END OF THE WAR—the SEVENTH phase of the Arab-Israeli Conflict—orchestrate a vast and comprehensive peace accord or TREATY predicated upon his on-going quest in positioning himself into both “the richest places” (Daniel 11:24a) as well as betwixt and “between the seas and the glorious holy mountain” (Daniel 11:45).  This entire process is known in Daniel 9:27 and 10:22-23 and in Isaiah 28:15, 18 as:


“Then (at the END OF THE WAR) he (Antichrist—THE COMING PRINCE, Daniel 9:26) shall confirm a covenant with many for one week . . . the Prince of the Covenant . . . after the league is made with him . . . ‘We have made a covenant with death, and with Sheol we are in agreement’ . . . our covenant with death will be annulled, and your agreement with Sheol will not stand.”


(5)     The “SEVENTIETH WEEK OF DANIEL” – It is this deceptive outrage which shall ignite the infamous Seventieth Week of Daniel (a.k.a., “the tribulation period”), as well as the commencement of the testimony of the TWO WITNESSES (Daniel 9:27; Revelation 11:2-14).  It is also implied within these archetypes and adumbrations found within Daniel’s accounting, and, in particular Ezekiel’s declarations (Ezekiel 38-39:16), that the alleged climax of the “Peace Accord” has naught but enflamed and radicalized the Islamic World against both Israel (Ezekiel 38-39:16) and the Willful King (Daniel 11:36)—the leader of Babylon the Great, the West—leading to . . .


(6)     The GOG-MAGOG WAR of Ezekiel 38-39:16 and Daniel 11:40-45 prior to or at the very convergence of his transfiguration from the Antichrist to the BEAST in the midst of Daniel’s 70th Week (Daniel 11:36-37; 9:27; Revelation 11:7; 13:1-10)—for this “GOD IS MANIFEST” (i.e., Antiochus Epiphanes IV) who. . . 


“. . . opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God . . . then the king shall do according to his own will:  he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods . . . he shall regard neither the God of his fathers . . . nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all” (II Thessalonians 2:4; Daniel 11:36-39)


(7)     Then it shall be during this time of “sitzkrieg” or “Twilight War” – the phony peace – (between the commencement of the Covenant with the Many (the Peace Accord) and the Gog-Magog War) that the Testimony of the Two Witnesses goes forth into all the world! (Revelation 11)




Although we know that the West is poised to elicit this comprehensive Peace Accord, with the overarching support of a Revived Roman-style Imperium – that Imperium is altogether powerless without the one who “in their place he shall honor a god of fortresses.”  Rome without her military might is/was nothing!  And, where might that “god of fortresses” persist to this very hour?  Lest I insult your intelligence, I cease this immediate discourse!


We will dismiss, for the time being, with events surrounding the Testimony of the Two Witnesses (Revelation 11:3-6) and their open persecution for the remainder of the 42 months of Daniel’s 70th Week known as the “Great Tribulation” (Matthew 24:21; Revelation 7:14; 11:2a, 8-11) and shall link ourselves to the significance of the events of the Peace Accord and of the Gog-Magog conflagration.  There is therefore utterly without dissimulation a clear and uncontested recognition that the U.S.-Israeli Alliance—wrought by provocateurs within the U.S. Military-Industrial Complex (a.k.a., “state-corporate interests” or “national interests”) as well as by the alleged “shadow government” of Neo-cons (a.k.a. sundry hawks and the Israel Lobby)—constitute the bulwark, the foundational ingredients to directly seize (viz., by the "Corptocracy of Government") the "hidden treasures" of the Middle East while using the Israeli Alliance as a moral ruse for galvanizing American public opinion in support of these endeavors.


It is the intentional and/or unwitting destructive reliance that Israel has and shall conclude with these deviant “Western interests” that is denounced by the Almighty as “Your COVENANT WITH DEATH, YOUR AGREEMENT WITH HELL (Sheol)” – it is the ultimate formalization of the U.S.-Israeli Strategic Alliance which the Scriptures foresee as the work of the Prince who is to come; to wit:  “He shall confirm a covenant/treaty with many for one week” (Daniel 9:27a).


Again, may I suggest you refresh your understanding of the magnitude of this Strategic Alliance by a reexamination of the series known as the U.S.-Israel Strategic Alliance by this author:


Part I – Your Covenant with Death – Your Agreement with Hell – The U.S.-Israel Strategic Alliance


Part II – He Will Confirm a Covenant with the Many – The U.S.-Israel Strategic Alliance


Part III – He Will Also Invade the Beautiful Land – The U.S.-Israel Strategic Alliance


Part IV – The Prince of the Covenant – The U.S.-Israel Strategic Alliance


In the Frida Berrigan and William D. Hartung piece on July 26, 2006, cited in the International Relations Center of Foreign Policy Center in Focus, the total sales and outright military hardware committed by the USA to the State of Israel since 2001 (and the 2007 requests by Israel) now total some $26 Billion Dollars ($26,000,000,000.00). 


Don’t think that Israel’s Strategic Alliance with the U.S.A. has not solidified as a result of the recent Syro-Phoenicia, War #6!  Indeed, comparing Israel’s seemingly lackluster performance in Lebanon is like comparing the US Marines “debacle” in Okinawa prior to Truman dropping two atomic bombs on Japan!  It was hard to get them out of their caves—but make no mistake—there are “other means” yet to employ that are far more effective!




Likewise, think not that Israel’s alleged “fear” . . .


“In the corridors of power in Jerusalem the cry is going up: ‘Help! Peace is upon you, Israel!’

 “A terrible enemy is conspiring to impose peace on us. He is advancing against us from two sides, in a giant pincer movement.

“One arm of this offensive is the Palestinian Unity Government that is about to be set up.

“The other is the decision of the Arab League to revive the Arab Peace Plan.”


And, just why is Israel supposedly bereft with fear of such a “peace initiative” – because “Arabists” would like them to be or perhaps “peaceniks” amongst the Israeli Left are having one of those phantasmagoric experiences coined by Gilbert Achcar in his dialogue with Noam Chomsky (p. 14, Perilous Power, the Middle East and U.S. Foreign Policy, Dialogues on Terror, Democracy, War, and Justice, Paradigm Publishers, Boulder, CO, 2007)?


“This plan was originally devised by Abdallah, then the Crown Prince and now the King of Saudi Arabia. It was adopted by the summit meeting of the Arab heads of state in Beirut in March 2002.

“This plan says, roughly: the entire Arab world will recognize Israel and make peace with it, if it withdraws to the 1967 borders and makes it possible to establish the State of Palestine, with East Jerusalem as its capital.” (Israeli Government Fears Peace Initiatives, Uri Avnery, September 20, 2006, the Electronic Intifada)


And, with all due respect—the only “Peace Proposal” that will ever be adopted by Israel will have little or nothing to do with what the Arabs design or desire . . .


“Against this danger of the Arab peacemongers , the Olmert government is calling up all its forces. In spite of the fact the entire political and military leadership is now busy fighting for its survival after the Lebanon fiasco, it is uniting in the face of this frightening menace.

 “Tzipi Livni (Israel Foreign Affairs Minister) was sent head over heels to the United States, in order to avert the danger. She went to convince President Bush (who happened to ‘pass’ the room when she was talking with Condoleezza Rice and who calls her ‘Tsiffi’) to use the deadly American veto against any Security Council resolution that might support peace. She is going to meet with some 20 heads of governments and foreign ministers to enlist their support against this menace.” (Ibid.)


To whom does Israel rush when she is threatened by war or peace—and the first two responses don’t count?


“Israel and the US will, therefore, declare that the Arab peace plan is damaging peace, because it contradicts the Road Map. The Palestinian unity government, when it is set up, must be boycotted, because it does not explicitly state that all its members recognize the State of Israel (as if all the members of the Israeli government were prepared to recognize the State of Palestine and its government, not to mention foreswearing violence and accepting all the existing agreements.) Therefore, the blockade of the Palestinian population must go on, until it sinks to its knees.”(Ibid.)


One thing that Israel’s Avnery does validate . . .


After six major wars and several minor ones, we may be inclined to suspect that the price in blood and money is too heavy, and - more importantly - that it does not bring victory, but multiplies the burdens on Israeli society.” (Ibid.)


Such is the inane thinking of the Israeli Left—wishful and exceedingly phantasmagoric.


No, my friends, if there is to be any peace in the Middle East—it will not be from the Arabs, nor for that matter, from phantasmagoric aspirations of the European bureaucrats pontificating hither, thither, and yon about the land . . . to wit:



“The European Council (Heads of State of the twenty five Member States and President of the European Commission accompanied by the Foreign Affairs Ministers and the Commissioner for External Relations and assisted by the High Representative for CFSP) determines the policy principles and general guidelines in the Common Foreign and Security Policy field.


“The European Union’s basic position on the Middle East Peace Process was first formulated by the European Council in its 1980 Venice Declaration and has been repeatedly reaffirmed (The Berlin Declaration, 1999; The Seville Declaration, 2002) by subsequent Summit and General Affairs and External Relations Council meetings. Some of the European Union declarations and ideas are regarded as milestones in the peace process and in developing relations with the Parties.” (European Commission, European Union in the World, External Relations – External Relations – The EU and the Middle East Peace Process)


The high-profile of Javier Solana dominates most of this innocuous effort on behalf of the Europeans – and the list is endless when it comes to concluding a once and final peace for the Middle East; here, go ahead; exhaust yourself!  (Compliments of Wikipedia)

Along with:

·         Paris Peace Conference, 1919

·         Faisal-Weizmann Agreement (1919)

·         1949 Armistice Agreements

·         Camp David Accords (1978)

·         Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty (1979)

·         May 17 Agreement (1983)

·         Madrid Conference of 1991

·         Oslo Accords (1993)

·         Israel-Jordan Treaty of Peace (1994)

·         Camp David 2000 Summit

·         Peace process in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict

·         Projects working for peace among Israelis and Arabs


The lists appear endless—but the final “Mother of All Comprehensive Peace Initiatives” will be YOUR TREATY WITH DEATH—YOUR AGREEMENT WITH HELL!  And, the world will be ready for the BIG ONE! 




Our establishment of The Coming Prince, and of Israel’s complicity in the signing of an ultimate comprehensive Peace Accord or Treaty which shall oblige her indulgence to the self-declared Protector of her citizenry, is, notwithstanding the overwhelming evidence of Scripture, despised and condemned as a Jesuit plot by well-meaning, and utterly deceived brethren, who are steeped in the Roman Catholic blame game wherein this Mother of Harlots is designated:  ANTICHRIST. . . past, present and future!


This ludicrous apparition (no pun intended to our Catholic brethren) behooves me to decry the erroneous attempts by superfluous pontificators and expositors extraordinaire who delve into matters of Scripture for gain—though they would categorical deny such a charge.  In any event, since they deign to remain in “unapproachable ambiguity” lest their true identities subvert their claims to humility and original revelation; thence, we shall have to designate them as “Brethren Secretive” – or, in brief, B.S.


Unfortunately, they reference one Steve Wohlberg, as their/his/her source of infinite expository excellence . . .


“Steve Wohlberg, whom I (a.k.a. B.S.) have never met, has done an excellent job of researching the origin of not only the ‘one world leader’ Antichrist false doctrine, as well as the true origin of the pre-tribulation rapture theory."


Wohlberg’s historical synthesis is nothing new—however amazed B.S. is at his discoveries—since Wohlberg’s Historicism confirmed what the “Holy Spirit” had already shown B.S. in the first place!


“Before we go much farther, let’s define some terms. Historicism is the belief that Biblical prophecies about the little horn, the man of sin, the Antichrist, the Beast, and the Babylonian Harlot of Revelation 17, all apply to the developing history of Christianity and to the ongoing struggle between Yahshua The Messiah and Satan within the Christian Church, culminating at the end of time. Historicism sees these prophecies as having a direct application to Papal Rome as a system whose doctrines are actually a denial of the New Testament message of free salvation by grace through simple faith in Yahshua The Messiah, apart from works. Historicism was the primary prophetic viewpoint of the Protestant Reformers. In direct opposition to Historicism, and rising up as a razor-sharp counterattack on Protestantism, was that of the Jesuits with their viewpoint of Futurism, which basically says, ‘The Antichrist prophecies have nothing to do with the history of Papal Rome, rather, they apply to only one sinister man who comes at the end.’


“Thus Jesuit Futurism sweeps 1,500 years of prophetic history under the proverbial rug by inserting its infamous GAP. This theory teaches that when Rome fell, prophecy stopped, only to continue again right around the time of the Rapture, thus the ‘gap’ was created. The ten horns, the little horn, the Beast, and the Antichrist have nothing to do with Christians until this ‘last-day Antichrist’ should appear.  According to this viewpoint, there were no prophecies being fulfilled during the Dark Ages!” (The Watchman Report, The Historical Truth About Antichrist, Steve Wohlberg)


Wohlberg traces the insidious doctrine of a one-man ultimate Antichrist from the original Counter-Reformation Jesuits (Francisco Ribera and Cardinal Robert Bellarmine) in the late 1500’s until its discoveries by elements within the Church of England some 300 years later (Dr. Samuel Roffey Matland (1792-1866); Professor of Hebrew, Dr. James H. Todd of the University of Dublin; John Henry Newman (1801-1890), member of the Church of England and leader of the Oxford Movement (1833-1845).  From here the “deception” spread to the founders of the Brethren Movement:  Edward Irving (founder of both the Pentecostal and Charismatic Movements . . . also, Irving captured the idea of the pre-tribulation rapture of the church from the revelations of one, Margaret McDonald); John Nelson Darby (the founder of Modern Dispensationalism); Cyrus Ingerson Scofield (of the famed Scofield Reference Bible); Dallas Theological Seminary and Hal Lindsey (The Late Great Planet Earth); Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins (The Left Behind series).


Bemoaning the deception of The Coming Prince—which historicists claim is naught but the despicable Antichrist Roman Catholic Church—B.S. and Bro. Wohlberg exclaim:


“Through Left Behind, the floodgates of Futurism have been opened, unleashing a massive tidal wave of false prophecy which is now sweeping over America. Sadly, it is a false ‘idea whose time has come.’


Adding to their total distortion of historical (no pun intended) fact is the finality of absurdity:


“Jesuit Futurism originated with the Roman Catholic Church, which makes it the very doctrine of the Antichrist! And when Christian ministries and movies like A Thief in the Night, Apocalypse, Revelation, Tribulation, and Left Behind, proclaim an Antichrist who comes only after the Rapture, what are they really doing? I shudder to even say it. Are you ready for this? They are sincerely and yet unknowingly teaching the doctrine of the Antichrist!”


The only historical point of fact which is in total opposition to B.S.’s aforementioned thesis is history’s record that the Early Church Fathers clearly believed and taught the coming of a future Antichrist as both a man and a counterfeit of Christ prior to the coming of the Lord!  I strongly urge you to review my following tomes regarding this personification:


(1)     The Antichrist is Not a Jew – Part I

(2)     The Antichrist is Not a Jew – Part II

(3)     The Antichrist is Not the Pope . . . A System, Nor Totality of Babylon the Great – Part III

(4)     Islam is Not the Antichrist – Part IV

(5)     Antichrist is Not a New Age Joke – Part V


A number of other articles relative to these disclosures are of interest and include:


(6)     The Da Vinci Code – Deciphering the Antichrist (Conspiracy theories

          and playing on the Antichrist is a Jew or Crypto-Catholic)

(7)     Javier Solana – Evident Spokesman for the World (“The Euro-Centric Antichrist”)

(8)     Who is Able to Make War with Him? – America’s Death has been

          Highly Exaggerated!

(9)     The Antichrist is Coming – A Direct Refutation on the Depersonification of the Coming of Antichrist.

(10)    Resistance is Futile – I saw a beast rising up out of the sea!   The Rise of the Militaristic West and Its Quest for Globalism and Power


B.S. and his associates find my research, I am humbly convinced, disconcerting and inflammatory—totally in sync with the Jesuits and their pre-trib followers.  Is there any wonder then that B.S., et. al., would confirm our suspicions by announcing this crafty proposal from the pit, not from Jesus (I can assure you!):




Stop focusing so much on what Satan is doing and going to do...Learn, prepare and begin to focus on what I am going to do!
I give you these stories and revelations, not that you would be ensnared by them, to be so caught up in investigating, but that you would simply understand what time it is and how close your redemption is. Do not spend your precious time investigating the deep things of Satan (Revelation 2:24), but the deep things of My Kingdom, which is coming very soon - even in troublous times.”


The entitlement of this rank deception is the “Brief Message from Yahshua” – thanks, but no thanks, Jesus was not here and neither did He leave such a message!  Unless B.S.’s real name is YAHSHUA—which it could be. 


How do I know it might be—well, consider . . . (sorry for the digression) —but it’s as bona fide as the remarks of B.S. . . .


A student by the Hispanic name of Jesus came in to see his teacher (this actually happened to me) . . . I told Jesus that she was not here.  “Just tell Sue you were here; did your assignment—leave it in the book on her desk; and just tell her you did the best you could and you’ll be back on Monday.”


So—Jesus did.  On Monday Sue exclaimed:


“Doug, I got a written message from Jesus—here’s what he said:  ‘Sue, This is Jesus, I was here for you.  I did all I could.  Thanks.  I’ll be back on Monday!’”


More B.S. can be found as the clear KINGDOM NOW teachings proliferate the site; including, the replacement of the Church as the New Israel of God:


“My covenant with Israel (Christian Church) is not forgotten, nor is my will slow to perform; But to whom shall I speak, and by whom shall my counsel be observed?”


But what always destroys the credibility of the messenger is the insatiable quest for support—MONEY!


“My brothers and sisters in Christ, I don't do this for money or a career. I have another career that afforded me great luxuries which I could return to in a heartbeat - if it were not for this calling - which you are the beneficiaries of. This is not about money at all, it is about you getting the truth, directly from the throne of God. I cannot publish what I don't receive, and if you appreciate what you have already received, God expects you to support this work—or— as you withhold your financial support, He too withholds His revelations and messages because of your stinginess and lack of sincerity.”


Again, forgive this distraction and rather vulgar commonality; however, rest assured of this one thing—THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE!  To be precise:  The Scriptures are altogether clear regarding the coming Antichrist and his ilk (the Second Beast, False Prophet and the legions of demonic hosts which shall arrive during the 70th Week)—indeed, their presence abounds, and though we deny the depersonification (if you would) of his personage as a civil system linked to an Apostate Religious System—it is abundantly plain that the Coming Prince has a Kingdom, a cosmos, for “the whole world lies in the hand of the Wicked One.”


Our final assurance is irrevocable . . .


“Even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolator . . . yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him . . . He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human means . . . then the Beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image . . . These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone” (Daniel 9:27b; 11:45b; 8:25b; Revelation 19:19-20).
