End-time Aspects of Daniel Chapters 8, 11, and Revelation 13

Dear Reader,

Here are some gems pertinent to these end-times.


Daniel Standing in His Lot Now.--[Dan. 12:9, 4, 10, 13 quoted.] “The time has come for Daniel to stand in his lot. The time has come for the light given him to go to the world as never before. If those for whom the Lord has done so much will walk in the light, their knowledge of Christ and the prophecies relating to Him will be greatly increased as they near the close of this earth's history (MS 176, 1899).  E.G. White, {4BC 1174.4}

“We have no time to lose. Troublous times are before us. The world is stirred with the spirit of war. Soon the scenes of trouble spoken of in the prophecies will take place. The prophecy in the eleventh of Daniel has nearly reached its complete fulfillment. Much of the history that has taken place in fulfillment of this prophecy will be repeated. In the thirtieth verse a power is spoken of that "shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant." [Verses 31-36, quoted.] {13MR 394.1}

     Scenes similar to those described in these words will take place. We see evidence that Satan is fast obtaining the control of human minds who have not the fear of God before them. Let all read and understand the prophecies of this book, for we are now entering upon the time of trouble spoken of: [Dan. 12:1-4, quoted.] {13MR 394.2}

     “The Spirit of the Lord is being withdrawn from the world. It is no time now for men to exalt themselves. It is no time for the people of God to be erecting costly buildings, or to be using the Lord's entrusted talent of means in glorifying themselves. Whatever we do we should do economically. The buildings we erect should be plain, without useless display. Let us beware of selfish greed.” E.G. White,--Letter 103, 1904.

The end cannot be far off now.  I believe it will follow the order of Daniel 8 also, with the little horn springing up from the four AFTER the U.S. has trounced Iraq and Iran.  The Masonic/Illuminati Jews very much want this as they feel such a threat from Iran, and in Washington, what the Jews want, they get sooner or later, and in this case it will be sooner.  The Pope's proposals will be accepted by the Arabs THEN, for they will not have much option at that time.  The Pope will engineer a peace treaty; all will cry peace, peace, and then sudden destruction will ensue.

1Th 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

I truly believe that we will soon see a strike against Iran.  An end-time variation of Daniel 8 is right on cue so far, and do not forget that Daniel says twice that the vision is for the time of the end--see vs. 17, 19, also verse 23, "latter time."  Though I fully believe in the SDA version of the historic fulfillment of Daniel 8, with the 2300 days ending in 1844, I believe in another fulfillment of much of that chapter and remember: verse 24 was certainly NOT fulfilled at that time!  There was no king of a fierce countenance that stood up and destroyed the mighty and the holy people.  The Pope will bargain a peace treaty with Islamism!  The entire world will wonder after him until Satan impersonates the second coming, and then there will not be enough room on the earth for BOTH Satan and his vicar.  Rome will burn in one hour--one morning.

 15 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 And saying, Alas, alas that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls! 17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off, 18 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! 19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate. 20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her. 21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at allRev. 18:15-21.

In Daniel 8:25, we find that the little horn will destroy many by peace, and stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand, which is the destruction above in Revelation.

Concerning time prophesies, Ellen White surely must have meant day for a year time ONLY, because we have a 42 month period in Revelation 13:2-5, AFTER the would is healed, and even for those who believe the wound to be fully healed as of circa the 1929, per the Lateran Concordat of 1929 - Papal Wound Healed!, nothing of particular interest involving the Papacy occurred 42 months after that Concordat.  The fact is that the wound has not been fully healed and will not be so until the Papacy regains its power with the aid of Protestantism, by enlisting governments to enforce Sunday observance and persecuting those who will not bend to Rome’s authority in changing the law of God.

And, in addition to the above stated 42 month period, Revelation mentions a 5 month period; a 10 day period and a one hour time period:

3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Rev. 13:3-8.

The whole world does not worship the beast until the end-time!  So in full context, the above verses state that there is a 42 month period of time AFTER the wound is healed and at that time the entire world wonders after the beast.  Those like Michaels and Ferrell, for example, misinterpret Ellen White’s statement that time will be no more.  She meant day for a year time and said such in the context of discouraging a re-setting of time after the time of discouragement circa 1844.

Rev 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment [was] as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

Rev 9:10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power [was] to hurt men five months.

Rev 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast [some] of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Rev 18:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.

Rev 18:17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,

Rev 18:19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

God bless,
