The little horn in Daniel with the Big Mouth
At first read the little horn in Daniel chapters 7 and 8 seem to refer to different people:
The Antichrist rising from the “western” Roman Empire who is slain when the Kingdom of God comes (Dan. 7:7-11); Antiochus Epiphanes who in circa 175 B.C. rose from the “eastern” Grecian Empire and fulfilled many of the prophecies listed in Daniel chapters 8 and 11.
Most commentators see him as a prototype of the Antichrist, but not the Antichrist himself. Some cite the change from Aramaic (a global language) in Daniel 7 to Hebrew (national language) in Daniel chapter 8 onward. They suggest that indicates the “little horns” have different spheres of operation, global versus local.
However, closer inspection shows the little horn in Daniel is the Antichrist seen from different perspectives. Antichrist rises from the 10 horn version of the Roman Empire in the End Time, but John reveals that last Empire has the body of a leopard which symbolizes the “eastern” Grecian Empire in Daniel (Dan. 7:6; Rev. 13:2). Also, whether Aramaic or Hebrew, the little horn in Daniel fights God in the End Time (Dan. 7:10-11; 20-26; 8:9-14; 11:36-37, 45; Dan. 12:1). Therefore, the little horn in Daniel cannot refer to two different Beasts and the change in language doesn’t indicate different areas of operation.
It cannot be denied Antiochus fulfilled some of the prophecy (Dan. 11:21-35), but it is also true Antiochus failed to fulfill all of the prophecy (Dan. 11:36-37). Therefore, the appearance of Antiochus serves a greater purpose, his origin and personality must be pertinent to the End Time Antichrist. As John’s Revelation 13:2 is a composite of Western and Eastern Empires, the fact Antiochus rose from the Seleucid (Syrian, Assyrian) division of the Grecian Empire, which later became part of the Byzantine Roman Empire, is revelation about his humble origins, and his nationality. A “ten horn” version of Rome that has a “Grecian body” is created in the end time “week of seven years”. It doesn’t exist yet. It rises in the end time after the Dragon and his angels are cast to the earth (Rev. 12:7-12). The Dragon demanded the earth create this Beastly New World Order, hence the symbolism it rose from a sea of spiritism.
Confirming the little horn in Daniel 8 must refer to something much stranger than Antiochus and his temple defiling acts, is Daniels astonishment at the vision:
And I, Daniel, fainted and was sick for days; afterward I arose and went about the king’s business. I was astonished by the vision, but no one understood it. (Dan. 8:27 NKJ)
If the vision were about Antiochus and his commonplace defilement of the Temple, Daniel would not be astonished to the point of being sick for days. Nor would he find it impossible other Hebrew Experts in his circle could not interpret the vision. Moreover, when we factor in God specially enabled Daniel to interpret enigma and vision (Dan. 2:47; 4:8-9; 5:11-12), the remote possibility un-astonishing interpretations by uninspired commentators today might be correct, is infinitesimal.
Because translators are convinced nothing astonishing is in this context, they believe “sanctuary” refers to the literal Temple, and so paraphrase צָדַק tsadaq as “cleansed” or “restored.” Literally translated it means “justified, vindicated:”
And he said unto me, Until two thousand and three hundred evenings and mornings: then shall the sanctuary be vindicated (06663 צָדַק tsadaq). (Dan. 8:14 DBY).”
Notice how this translator “invents a hypothetical text” to justify his paraphrase:
will be purified. The Hebrew verb, weniṣdaq (the only occurrence of the niphal of ṣdq in the MT!) should mean “will be justified.” But this can hardly be said of the sanctuary. The underlying Aramaic was surely yidkê, “will be cleansed, purified,” which was corrupted into, or misread by the translator as yizkê, “will be victorious, justified.”- Hartman, L. F., &; Di Lella, A. A. (2008). The Book Of Daniel: A New Translation With Notes And Commentary On Chapters 1-9 (Vol. 23, p. 227). New Haven; London: Yale University Press.
A massive violation of Occam’s Razor, cognitive dissonance.
Now the prophecy of 2,300 days makes sense, fits the rest of the Bible.
2,300 days counting from the beginning of the End Time Week, the Temple of God the Church will have her faith in Jesus vindicated, justified.
In the teleios they sing the songs of Moses, and cry out God’s “judgments have been manifested!” Vindicating their profession of faith in Him, the facts justifying the correctness of it:
1 Then I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete.
2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God.
3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying: “Great and marvelous are Your works, Lord God Almighty! Just and true are Your ways, O King of the saints!
4 Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name? For You alone are holy. For all nations shall come and worship before You, For Your judgments have been manifested.” (Rev. 15:1-4 NKJ)
The coming change in Times and Law
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. (Dan. 7:25 NKJ)
“Times and laws” are the foundations and main conditions, emanating from God, of the life and actions of men in the world.-Keil, C. F., & Delitzsch, F. (1996). Commentary on the Old Testament (Vol. 9, p. 650). Peabody, MA: Hendrickson.
Times and law are the basic predicates of human society, belief in God its foundation. For example, the Declaration of Independence declares all “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Destroy the definition of God, then these rights no longer exist. The little horn in Daniel will attempt to change the definition of God, change the Holy One who is Infinite and completely unlike His creation to a finite Elohim like the angels.
36 “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, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done.
37 “He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. (Dan. 11:36-37 NKJ)
This is a puzzle; we must see the picture the details make. “The desire of women” is Jesus Christ, YHWH God The Eternal Son of YHWH God the Father (Gen. 1:26-27; 19:24; Matt. 28:19; John 3:18; 20:31); The “God of his fathers”, Antichrist’s “fathers” are the Jews as Adonikam is of the tribe of Dan.
As it is impossible to exalt oneself above the “God of gods”, the “insulting blasphemy” is a redefinition of the nature of YHWH God to “make Him equal to other Elohim”. Then the Antichrist can be on “top” of all Elohim, as the “God of Gods”. The Apostle Paul confirmed this:
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. (2 Thess. 2:4 NKJ)
Antichrist opposes the definition of Elohim as gods, they become “Extraterrestrials” in “Ancient Alien Theory”, aka “Scientific Atheism“. Then Antichrist exalts himself above the Elohim formerly called God or worshiped as such, so that he sits as the God of gods in the Church the Temple of God , proclaiming his “hybrid Elohim-human” nature is God.
Raëlism teaches that an extraterrestrial species known as the Elohim created humanity using their advanced technology. An atheistic religion, it believes that the Elohim have historically been mistaken for gods. It holds that throughout history the Elohim have created forty Elohim/human hybrids who have served as prophets preparing humanity for news about their ultimate origins. Among those listed as prophets are The Buddha, Jesus of Nazareth, and Muhammad, with Raël himself being the fortieth and final prophet. Raëlists believe that since the Hiroshima bomb of 1945, humanity has entered an Age of Apocalypse in which it is threatening itself with nuclear annihilation. It argues that humanity must find a way of harnessing new scientific and technological development for peaceful ends, and that once this has been achieved the Elohim shall return to Earth to share their technology with humanity and usher in a utopia.- Wikipedia
For decades humanity has been conditioned to believe the “Extraterrestrial Hypothesis”. Massive UFO spectacle and contactee phenomena are presented as proof of it 24/7 by Corporate and Social media. Growing numbers of people believe “Ancient Alien Theory” is true. UFO cults communing with demon spirits already preach messages from “the “Elohim Designers” and their claims to have genetically modified humanity throughout history. They promise to bring in a New World Order of peace and safety and immortality.
Then the End Time will be just like the Days of Noah, when the Nephilim fallen angels walked among men, doing genetic experiments in collaboration with human scientists. For more on this: Nephilim Fallen Angels and the Sons of God
When the Nephilim return (Gen. 6:4; Rev. 12:7-12), their star-fleet hovering over cities of the earth (Rev. 12:4; Lk. 21:25-26), Adonikam the “man of sin” False Christ will morph into the “Son of Destruction” “Seed of Satan” (Gen. 3:15) to become the little horn in Daniel with a Big Mouth speaking pompous words against YHWH the only true God.
Preaching the “scientific atheism” of the Dragon (Rev. 16:13; 2 Thess. 2:7-12) he blasphemes that God is like his angels, exalting his hybrid Elohim-human nature is above Elohim, the only true God.
This “little horn in Daniel” is known by many names: “The Beast” (Rev. 11:7; 13:17); “Big Mouth” (Dan. 7:8, 20; Rev. 13:5-6); “Adonikam” (Rev. 13:8; Ezra 2:13); “the Assyrian” (Isa. 14:25; Mic. 5:5-6) “King of Babylon” rebuilt in the End Time by the Nephilim (Isa. 14:4-27); “Son of Destruction” (2 Thess. 2:3); “Seed of Satan” (Gen. 3:15); “King of the North” (Dan. 11:36-12:1), the “Prince to come” (Dan. 9:26-27); “Man of Sin” (2 Thess. 2:3); “False Christ” (Mat. 24:5, 24; Mk. 13:22); “The Desolator” (Dan. 9:27); “King of fierce countenance” (Dan. 8:23); “Antichrist” (1 John 2:18; 2 John 1:7); “the Deceiver” (2 John 1:7) “The Lawless One” (2 Thess. 2:8) denying the deity of the Father and the Son (1 Jn. 2:18, 22; 4:3; 2 Jn. 1:7).
Ancient Alien Theory with Scientific Atheism in support of the Antichrist is the strong delusion (cf. flying frogs in Rev. 16:13) that deceives the entire world to fight YHWH God at Armageddon. For more on this see The War Between God and Satan: The Seven Bowls
