The Last Week of Daniel...

Part 2 A Time of Trouble For then there will be great tribulation (affliction, distress, and oppression) such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now no, and never will be again. (Mat 24:21) Ampl And And there shall be a time of trouble, straitness, and distress such as never was since there was a nation till that time. (Dan 12:1b) Ampl After this sign, still on the 22nd of April 2002, another sign appeared in the heavens. I saw one that moved from the south west towards the north. A French hat, called a bicorn, appeared in the heavens. After doing some research on this hat, which the Lord had shown me I found the most interesting link with the man that is called the Anti-Christ or the man of sin or the Beast. This hat is synonymous with Napoleon Bonaparte.

The Bicorne: The Bicorne or bicorn was a hat worn from the 1780s. The Bicorne had the brim turned up at the front and back, completely hiding the crown. The brim was pressed in at the front to form a peak. The front-left of the hat was usually decorated with a cockade or rosette. The Bicorne was traditionally part of the ceremonial uniform of the British, French and American navies. The Bicorn was also a mythical monster with a demonic undertone, having two horns. In Europe’s medieval literature this fabulous is referenced as plump female monster resembling a well fed panther with a human face and a broad grin, which grows fat through feasting on the flesh on the ‘hen-pecked’, faithful enduring husbands. In the chauvinist attitudes of the period, such a diet was conjectured to have provided a great quality of fodder for the beast.

Napoleon Bonaparte: I include a short history of Napoleon Bonaparte to show how much this historic tyrant corresponds with the ultimate tyrant that will rule the earth, known as the Anti-Christ. I will specifically point out those characteristics, which Yeshua had shown me in the fast, and that corresponds with the Anti-Christ’s characteristics as was prophesied by all the prophets. We can understand the future by learning from the past. We can only really understand how the coming dictator, who will proclaim himself as Emperor of the world, will think, because these past rulers were the examples with which he had to have grown up. Although many attribute supernatural powers to this tyrant, the prophet Isaiah say that he will die as a man and not be a god, saying: 5 The Lord has broken the staff of the wicked, the sceptre of the tyrant rulers, 6 Who smote the peoples in anger with incessant blows and trod down the nations in wrath with unrelenting persecution until he who smote is persecuted and no one hinders any more. 7 The whole earth is at rest and is quiet; they break forth into singing. 8 Yes, the fir trees and cypresses rejoice at you, even the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since you have been laid low, no woodcutter comes up against us. 9 Sheol, Hades, the place of the dead, below is stirred up to meet you at your coming O tyrant Babylonian rulers; it stirs up the shades of the dead to greet you, even all the chief ones of the earth; it raises from their thrones in astonishment at your humbled condition all the kings of the nations. 10 All of them will tauntingly say to you: “Have you also become weak as we are? Have you become like us? 11 Your pomp and magnificence are brought down to Sheol, the underworld, along with the sound of your harps; the maggots, which prey upon dead bodies, are spread out under you and worms cover you O Babylonian rulers. 12 How have you fallen from heaven, O light-bringer and daystar, son of the morning! How you have been cut down to the ground, you who weakened and laid low the nations. O blasphemous, satanic king of Babylon! 13 And you said in your heart: “I will ascend to heaven; I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will sit upon the mount of assembly in the uttermost north. 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High. 15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol, to the innermost recesses of the pit, the region of the dead. 16 Those who see you The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

will gaze at you and consider you, saying: “Is this the man who made the earth tremble, who shook kingdoms? 17 Who made the world like a wilderness and overthrew its cities, who would not permit his prisoners to return home? 18 All the kings of the nations, all of them lie sleeping in glorious array, each one in his own sepulcher. 19 But you are cast away from your tomb like a loathed growth or premature birth or an abominable branch of the family and like the raiment of the slain; and you are clothed with the slain, those thrust through with the sword, who go down to the stones of the pit into which carcasses are thrown, like a dead body trodden underfoot. 20 You shall not be joined with them in burial, because you have destroyed your land and have slain your people. May the descendants of evildoers nevermore be named! (Isa 14:5-20) Ampl YHWH will cast down this Satanic king, who though that he was God. The same one whom the world feared were now the same as all those whether rich or poor in Hell. The last reason why I do go into such detail is because of the sign, which the Holy Spirit had shown me of a Bicorne, French hat. God knows the future and although we do not understand now, by faith and in obedience, I make this expose, no pun intended, of the Anti-Christ, by comparing this coming attempted world leader to the tyrant Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte. See the red-brown writings inserted comments. Napoleon Bonaparte lived 15 August 1769 – 5 May 1821 and was a military and political leader of France and Emperor of the French as Napoleon I, whose actions shaped European politics in the early 19th century. 22 Before him the overwhelming forces of invading armies shall be broken and utterly swept away; yes, and a prince of the covenant with those who were at peace with him also shall be broken and swept away. (Dan 11:22) Ampl The man who will become the Anti-Christ will be a very powerful strategic military leader who will use his skill in deceit and flattery to become the most powerful and ruthless leader that the world has ever seen. Born in Corsica and trained as an artillery officer in mainland France, Bonaparte rose to prominence under the First French Republic and led successful campaigns against the First and Second Coalitions arrayed against France. In 1799, he staged a coup d'état and installed himself as First Consul; five years later the French Senate proclaimed him Emperor. In the first decade of the nineteenth century, the French Empire under Napoleon, engaged in a series of conflicts – the Napoleonic Wars – involving every major European power. After a streak of victories, France secured a dominant position in continental Europe and Napoleon maintained the French sphere of influence through the formation of extensive alliances and the appointment of friends and family members to rule other European countries as French client states. The French invasion of Russia in 1812 marked a turning point in Napoleon's fortunes. His Grande Armée was badly damaged in the campaign and never fully recovered. In 1813, the Sixth Coalition defeated his forces at Leipzig; the following year the Coalition invaded France, forced Napoleon to abdicate and exiled him to the island of Elba. Less than a year later, he escaped Elba and returned to power, but was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815. Napoleon spent the last six years of his life under British supervision on the island of Saint Helena. An autopsy concluded he died of stomach cancer, though Sten Forshufvud and other scientists have since conjectured that he was poisoned with arsenic.

Napoleon's campaigns are studied at military academies the world over. While considered a tyrant by his opponents, he is also remembered for the establishment of the Napoleonic code, which laid the administrative and judicial foundations for much of Western Europe. We can be sure that the Anti-Christ has studied this man’s war tactics and those of Adolf Hitler, and Stalin. He could even be an admirer of Napoleon. Origins and education Napoleon Bonaparte was born the second of eight children, in Casa Buonaparte in the town of Ajaccio, Corsica, on 15 August 1769, one year after the island was transferred to France by the Republic of Genoa.[1] He was initially named Napoleone di Buonaparte, acquiring his first name from an uncle who had been killed fighting the French,[2] but later adopted the more French-sounding Napoléon Bonaparte.[note 1] The following statement might shock you, but he could possibly have come from another country, initially not being a French man, but have attained His French citizenship in later years. The Corsican Buonapartes originated from minor Italian nobility, who had come to Corsica in the 16th century.[4] His father Nobile Carlo Buonaparte, an attorney, was named Corsica's representative to the court of Louis XVI in 1777. The dominant influence of Napoleon's childhood was his mother, Maria Letizia Ramolino, whose firm discipline restrained a rambunctious child.[5] The up bringing of this child, who will become the dictator of the world will have a very interesting profile. Napoleon was brought up by his mother. He probably had to over compensate because of the way he was brought up by his father or mother. He had an elder brother, Joseph; and younger siblings Lucien, Elisa, Louis, Pauline, Caroline and Jérôme. Napoleon was baptised Catholic just before his second birthday, on 21 July 1771 at Ajaccio Cathedral.[6] 37 He will show no respect for the gods his ancestors worshipped, or for the god women worship — he won't show respect for any god, because he will consider himself greater than all of them. (CJB) 37 He shall not regard the gods of his fathers or to whom women desire or any other god, for he shall magnify himself above all. 38 But in their place he shall honour the god of fortresses; a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold and silver, with precious stones, and with pleasant and expensive things. 39 And he shall deal with the strongest fortresses by the help of a foreign god. Those who acknowledge him he shall magnify with glory and honour, and he shall cause them to rule over many and shall divide the land for a price. (Dan 11:37-39) Ampl The same one, who will hate the church or any other religion or god, will himself once have been religious. The prophet mentions another god that he will hate. This god is said to be called the god whom women desire. This is the women Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. But this Mary is not the mother Mary, Jesus’ mother, but rather the queen of heaven, or according to ancient pagan history of Egyptian and Babylonian worship, is the sun god Ra of the goddess of fertility, Semiramis. This god is a saint or Virgin Mary of the Roman Catholic Church. He hates the powerless rituals of the Christian religion with which he grew up. He might even have been a Roman Catholic once. Napoleon's noble, moderately affluent background and family connections afforded him greater opportunities to study than were available to a typical Corsican of the time.[7] 21 "There will arise in his place a despicable man not entitled to inherit the majesty of the kingdom, but he will come without warning and gain the kingdom by intrigue. (Dan 11:21) Ampl Napoleon did not arise to power because of his bloodline of nobility, but because of intrigue. Although he had some minor Italian nobility, he was no king.

underdog, one who always had to prove himself. He will actually despise authority and have no consideration for the kings and princes and presidents or rulers around him. He thinks them fools in his heart. We often think that this man will be hidden and then suddenly arise on the world scenes. This is an under estimation of the wickedness and the intrigues and plans that has been lingering in his heart for many years, even since he was a child. In January 1779, Napoleon was enrolled at a religious school in Autun, mainland France, to learn French, and in May he was admitted to a military academy at Brienne-le-Château.[8] He spoke with a marked Corsican accent and never learned to spell properly.[9] Napoleon was teased by other students for his accent and applied himself to study.[10][note 2] An examiner observed that Napoleon "has always been distinguished for his application in mathematics. He is fairly well acquainted with history and geography... This boy would make an excellent sailor."[12][note 3] Napoleon was a military expert of history. He was also brilliant and very logical thinker, possibly not because he was so intelligent, but because he was an underdog, needing to prove that he could also succeed. This leaves us with another very interesting question, what will be the main driving force behind the man of sin? Was he teased and had to prove himself. We often forget that he will be only a human being. In order to get somewhere in live we need to study and even distinguish ourselves above others. If I have an unhealthy ambition, because I want to prove something to my competitors, than I will be driven far beyond the normal child. The one, who will become the Anti-Christ, will know the history of the former tyrant leaders very well. He has shaped himself into one of them. The Holy Spirit could be indicating that Napoleon Bonaparte will be his absolute role model. This is tragic, but he had no other up bringing. Apart from all his ill driven ambition he will be a brilliant and intelligent human being applying himself to reach the top. On completion of his studies at Brienne in 1784, Napoleon was admitted to the elite École Militaire in Paris; this ended his naval ambition, which had led him to consider an application to the British Royal Navy.[14] Instead, he trained to become an artillery officer and, when his father's death reduced his income, was forced to complete the two-year course in one year.[10] He was examined by the famed scientist Pierre-Simon Laplace, whom Napoleon later appointed to the Senate.[15] Napoleon was an ordinary man, with ordinary problems. His father died and that must have been very tragic or in convenient, because his studies was costly. From this we can see that Napoleon did not come from a royal and rich house. Instead of being discouraged, he was driven even harder. Napoleon had a dream and was very a brilliant thinker. He loved to reason about science, asking many questions. He was boy with a dream. The Anti-Christ will be man who is very hard on himself and all those around him. He will go the extra mile to reach his goal. He will appoint to govern with him those who think and believe as he does. Upon graduating in September 1785, Bonaparte was commissioned a second lieutenant in La Fère artillery regiment.[8][note 4] He served on garrison duty in Valence, Drôme and Auxonne until after the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789, though he took nearly two years of leave in Corsica and Paris during this period. A fervent Corsican nationalist, Bonaparte wrote to the Corsican leader Pasquale Paoli in May 1789: "As the nation was perishing I was born. Thirty thousand Frenchmen were vomited on to our shores, drowning the throne of liberty in waves of blood. Such was the odious sight which was the first to strike me."[17] Naturally driven, The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

Napoleon was driven in anything that he attempted. Out of this passage of history we find the next most important ingredient for a world leader - arrogant ambition. Napoleon did not love nor respected his own people. He was very self-absorbed and selfishly driven. Men were only an obstacle, which he used to obtain his goal. The Anti-Christ, the man of lawlessness, will be a very arrogant man. He will be self absorbed and selfish. He might outwardly seem to care for his own people, but inwardly they are only cannon fodder, on which he feeds to obtain his ambition to world dominion. The arrogance of this man will in the world be seen as powerful leadership characteristics, but will result in a dictator who will not care about those who put him in leadership. He spent the early years of the Revolution in Corsica, fighting in a complex threeway struggle between royalists, revolutionaries, and Corsican nationalists. He supported the revolutionary Jacobin faction, gained the rank of The Door of the Jacobin Club Lieutenant Colonel and command over a battalion of volunteers. After he was in the Saint-Honoré Street, had exceeded his leave of absence and led a riot against a French army in Paris, France. Corsica, he was somehow able to convince military authorities in Paris to promote him to Captain in July 1792.[18] He returned to Corsica once again, and came into conflict with Paoli, who had decided to split with France and sabotage a French assault on the Sardinian island of La Maddalena, where Bonaparte was one of the expedition leaders.[19] Bonaparte and his family had to flee to the French mainland in June 1793 because of the split with Paoli.[20] "While I was considering the horns, another horn sprang up among them, a little one, before, which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots. In this horn were eyes like human eyes and a mouth speaking arrogantly.” (8) Ampl And also 23 “In the latter part of their reign, when the evildoers have become as evil as possible, there will arise an arrogant king skilled in intrigue.” Napoleon knew how to convince those around him that he was what they were looking for. He was a good sales man. He knew how to get his point across in such away that all would buy into his schemes. (Dan 8:23) Ampl The Anti-Christ will be a smooth talker but an very arrogant man. His will quickly be able to even convince his enemies that he is on their side. This will lead to their down fall and destruction. He will even be ruthless in lying and pleasing to accomplish his goal. One other very important point of interest hidden in this peak into history is the means, by which Napoleon Bonaparte grew stronger and more influential in his authority - The Jacobin club. What was the Jacobin club? The Jacobin club The Jacobin Club was the most famous political club of the French Revolution. [1] It originated as the Club Benthorn, formed at Versailles as a group of Breton deputies to the Estates General of 1789.[2] At the height of its influence, there were thousands of chapters throughout France, with a membership estimated at 420,000.[citation needed] After the fall of Robespierre the club was closed.

Initially moderate, the club later became notorious for its implementation of the Reign of Terror. [4] To this day, the terms Jacobin and Jacobinism are used as pejoratives for left-wing revolutionary politics.[5] See Wikipedia: The Jacobin club. Formed in Versailles by deputies from Brittany during the Estates-General of 1789, the earliest meetings were secretive and few records remain regarding their content. See French History The most prominent political clubs of the French Revolution were the Jacobin Clubs that sprung up throughout Paris and the provinces in August of 1789. By 1791, there were 900 Jacobin clubs in France associated with the main club in Paris. According to Spielvogel, "Members were usually the elite of their local societies, but they also included artisans and tradesmen" (688). Jacobin clubs served as debating societies where politically minded Frenchmen aired their views and discussed current political issues. Many members of Jacobin clubs were also deputies and used the meetings to organized forces and plan tactics. The most notorious deputy connected with the Jacobin club is Robespierre. Marat was also aligned with the Jacobin club, and this association caused his death. Charlotte Corday, his murderer, targeted Marat because she thought that he represented the worst of the Jacobin movement (Dowd, 115). The club supported and participated in some of the most shocking events of The The inside of a Jacobin Club, Anonymous Print, from Decaux. Revolution. Members of Jacobin clubs were among the mob invaded the Tuileries on August, 10, 1792. They also supported the execution of Louis XVI. Druing the Terror, local Jacobin clubs turned the provinces into nightmares of fear and destruction as members took it upon themselves to be agents of the Terror, and sent thousands to the guillotine (Dowd, 129). The clubs were also strictly anticlerical, and during the Terror some clubs wages a crusade against the church, imprisoning priests and looting churches (129). See The Jacobins The Jacobin club was a secret society, much like the Freemasons, the sculls and bones and other societies of very influential people. This is a band of evil doers coming together, not wanting the rest of the world to know how they, behind the scenes, beforehand decided the outcome of wars, revolutions and political decisions.

conspiracy and espionage, against those whom they see as a thread to their regime. In order for the man of sin and lawlessness, the Anti-Christ to come into power he will have to sit in one of the most influential chairs of authority in such an organisation of evil doers. The Lord had continually shown me, through signs in the heavens, that these organizations does exist and that through them, the man who understands sinister schemes, will come to power, as Daniel prophesied, saying: “And at the latter end of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached the fullness of their wickedness, taxing the limits of God's mercy, a king of fierce countenance and understanding dark trickery and craftiness shall stand up.” (Dan 8:23) Ampl This man will not only deceive the world, but also the members in the secret societies, of which he is part of in the world. The Lord had often showed the sign of the symbol of the secret society resembled by the Nazi symbols of the Third Reich – The Swastika. This was also linked with the Roman Catholic Church symbols of the pope’s sceptre and the snake swallowing his own tail. These signs are unmistakably, the tell tale symbols of these secret societies of history and still exists today. Siege of Toulon

In July 1793, he published a pro-republican pamphlet, Le Souper de Beaucaire [Supper at Beaucaire], which gained him the admiration and support of Augustin Robespierre, younger brother of the Revolutionary leader Maximilien Robespierre. With the help of fellow Corsican Antoine Christophe Saliceti, Bonaparte was appointed artillery commander of the republican forces at the siege of Toulon. The city had risen against the republican government and was occupied by British troops.[21] He adopted a plan to capture a hill placing what would allow republican guns to dominate the city's harbour and force the British ships to evacuate. The assault on the position, during which Bonaparte was wounded in the thigh, led to the capture of the city and his promotion to Brigadier General. His actions brought him to the attention of the Committee of Public Safety and he was given command of the artillery arm of France's Army of Italy.[22] He became engaged to Désirée Clary, whose sister, Julie Clary, married Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph in 1794. The Clarys were a wealthy merchant family from Marseille.[23] Napoleon perused the most powerful position in France – The King or even better the Emperor of France. He needed status, position and power. His ambition was hidden behind a mask of leadership. Napoleon might not have married for love, but also for power and wealth at this stage. His desire for power had increased incessantly and he would do anything to get a more powerful position. He was slowly climbing the ladder to the top. The Anti-Christ might also marry for more power and position, only to later divorce her, because he got what he was looking for, not love, but power and position. This marriage not only gave him more wealth, but also connected him with the right people in the business. Desiree’s family was rich merchants or traders. The AntiChrist will use whatever to reach the ultimate goal. The most powerful merchants in the world are banker’s originations and oil cartels. These will be the type of organization he will be part of in order to become rich and honoured by all around him. He will not have time for his family for they are only a method to a means.

Bilderberg Group The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, or Bilderberg Club is an unofficial, annual, invitationonly conference of around 130 guests, most of whom are persons of great influence in the fields of politics, business, banking, and media. The group meets annually at hotels or resorts throughout the world for two consecutive years in Europe followed by a year in the United States or Canada. This tradition appeared to be broken in 2008 when the meeting was held in Chantilly, Virginia, so as to give easier access to those associated with the US elections. The 2009 Bilderberg meeting took place from 14-16 May in Athens, Greece.[1] In a European Parliament session in Brussels, Mario Borghezio, an Italian member of European Parliament, questioned the nominations of Bilderberg and Trilateral attendees for the posts of EU President and EU foreign minister.[18][19] In 2009 the group had a dinner meeting at Castle of the Valley of the Duchess in Brussels, in the 12th of November, with the participation of Herman Van Rompuy, who later became the President of the European Council. The newspaper De Tijd (and several others afterwards) reported that, at this meeting, Van Rompuy showed support for a European green tax: "Van Rompuy told the elite club that the European government leaders are increasingly becoming proponents of Europe tapping off green income, so that the contributions of member states to the EU can be decreased." [20] [21] [22] The steering committee does not publish a list of attendees, though some participants have publicly discussed their attendance. Historically, attendee lists have been weighted towards politicians, bankers, and directors of large businesses.[14] Heads of state, including Juan Carlos I of Spain and Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, have attended meetings.[6][15] Prominent politicians from North America and Europe are past attendees. In past years, board members from many large publicly-traded corporations have attended, including IBM, Xerox, Royal Dutch Shell, Nokia and Daimler.[6]

13 Vendémiaire Following the fall of the Robespierres in the July 1794 Thermidorian Reaction, Bonaparte was put under house arrest in August 1794 for his association with the brothers.[note 5] Although he was released after only ten days, he remained out of favour.[25] In April 1795, he was assigned to the Army of the West, which was engaged in the War in the Vendée—a civil war and royalist counter-revolution in France's Vendée region. As an infantry command, it was a demotion from artillery general, and he pleaded poor health to avoid the posting.[26] He was moved to the Bureau of Topography of the Committee of Public Safety and sought, unsuccessfully, to be transferred to Constantinople (officially renamed Istanbul on 28 March 1930) in order to offer his services to the Sultan.[27] During this period he wrote a romantic novella, Clisson et Eugénie, about a soldier and his lover, in a clear parallel to Bonaparte's own relationship with Désirée.[28] On 15 September Bonaparte was removed from the list of generals in regular service, with the reason given being his refusal to serve in the Vendée campaign. He now faced a difficult financial situation and further reduced career prospects.[29]

The Journée of 13 Vendémiaire, Year 4. The Saint-Roch Church, Rue SaintHonoré, Paris

On 3 October, royalists in Paris declared a rebellion against the National Convention after they were excluded from a new government, the Directory.[30] One of the leaders of the Thermidorian Reaction, Paul Barras knew of Bonaparte's military exploits at Toulon and gave him command of the improvised forces in defence of the Convention in the Tuileries Palace. Bonaparte had witnessed the massacre of the King's Swiss Guard there three years earlier and realised artillery would be key to its defence.[8] He ordered a young cavalry officer, Joachim Murat to seize large cannons and used them to repel the attackers on 5 October 1795—13 Vendémiaire An IV in the French Republican Calendar. 1,400 royalists died and the rest fled.[30] He had cleared the streets with "a whiff of grapeshot" according to the 19th-century historian Thomas Carlyle, in The French Revolution: A History.[31] The defeat of the Royalist insurrection extinguished the threat to the Convention and earned Bonaparte sudden fame, wealth, and the patronage of the new Directory; Murat would become his brother-in-law and one of his generals. Bonaparte was promoted to Commander of the Interior and given command of the Army of Italy.[20] Within weeks he was romantically attached to Barras's former mistress, Joséphine de Beauharnais, whom he married on 9 March 1796, after he had broken off his engagement to Désirée Clary.[32] First Italian campaign Two days after the marriage, Bonaparte left Paris to take command of the Army of Italy and led it on a successful invasion of Italy. At the Battle of Lodi he defeated Austrian forces, then drove them out of Lombardy.[20] He was defeated at Caldiero by Austrian reinforcements, led by József Alvinczi, though Bonaparte regained the initiative at the crucial Battle of the Bridge of Arcole and proceeded to subdue the Papal The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

States.[33] Bonaparte argued against the wishes of Directory atheists to march on Rome and dethrone the Pope as he reasoned this would create a power vacuum that would be exploited by the Kingdom of Naples. Instead, in March 1797, Bonaparte led his army into Austria and forced it to negotiate peace.[34] The Treaty of Leoben gave France control of most of northern Italy and the Low Countries and a secret clause promised the Republic of Venice to Austria. Bonaparte marched on Venice and forced its surrender, ending 1,100 years of independence; he also authorised the French to loot treasures such as the Horses of Saint Mark.[35] His application of conventional military ideas to real-world situations affected his military triumphs, such as creative use of artillery as a mobile force to support his infantry. He referred to his tactics thus: "I have fought sixty battles and I have learned nothing which I did not know at the beginning. Look at Caesar; he fought the first like the last."[36] He was adept at espionage and deception and could win battles by concealment of troop deployments and concentration of his forces on the 'hinge' of an enemy's weakened front. If he could not use his favourite envelopment strategy, he would take up the central position and attack two cooperating forces at their hinge, swing round to fight one until it fled, then turn to face the other.[37] In this Italian campaign, Bonaparte's army captured 150,000 prisoners, 540 cannons and 170 standards.[38] The French army fought 67 actions and won 18 pitched battles through superior artillery technology and Bonaparte's tactics.[39] Main article: Italian campaigns of the French Revolutionary Wars 23 And from the time that an alliance is made with him he shall work deceitfully, and he shall come up unexpectedly and shall become strong with a small people. 24 Without warning and stealthily he shall come into the most productive places of a province or among the richest men of a province, and he shall do neither that, which his fathers have not done nor his fathers' fathers; he shall distribute among them plunder, spoil, and goods. He shall devise plans against strongholds, but only for a time, the period decreed by God. (Dan 11:23) Ampl Napoleon was a great military strategist. When taking over a country he knew how to use his victory to his advantage, by making a treaty or an alliance with them so as to strengthen his forces. He knew how to play his hand and who to give leeway to so that He could attain his hidden agenda. Dethroning the pope of his status made him the first person to take away the pope’s position and authority. He knew who to attack and when. God revealed to the prophet Daniel that the, soon to be, Anti-Christ, will be in same league as Napoleon Bonaparte. The man who knows sinister schemes, the son of perdition, will make leagues and treaties with all whom he desire to use, in his ambition, to be accepted by all who could pose a thread to him. He will tragically influence and deceive as he plans to come into the richest place of a province, as is revealed to the prophet. This riches place of a province could be one of those cities like Brussels in Belgium or Geneva in Switzerland or even as was mentioned above in one of the Bilderberg meetings of the richest and most influential men in Europe and the world. He will be playing on both sides of the fare, as the Lord had revealed, through the signs in the heavens. He will be double agent in the east although he will convince the west, the United Nations and the European Union that he is in agreement with their decisions also.

During the campaign, Bonaparte became increasingly influential in French politics. He published two newspapers, ostensibly for the troops in his army, but widely circulated in France as well, and in May 1797, founded a third newspaper, Le Journal de Bonaparte et des hommes vertueux, which was published in Paris.[40] The man of great intrigue will know how the work in such away as to protect and use the media to strength his fame among the people of the world. He will not allow his name to be tarnished by anyone before he comes to power, for that could mean his end. Elections in mid-1797 gave the royalist party more power and alarmed the Directory.[41] The royalists attacked Bonaparte for looting Italy and claimed he had overstepped his authority in dealings with the Austrians. Bonaparte sent General Pierre Augereau to Paris to lead a coup d'état and purge the royalists on 4 September—18 Fructidor. This left Barras and his Republican allies in control again, but dependent on Bonaparte who proceeded to peace negotiations with Austria. These negotiations resulted in the Treaty of Campo Formio, and Bonaparte returned to Paris in December as a hero, more popular than the Directors.[42] He met with Talleyrand, France's new Foreign Minister—who would later serve in the same capacity for Emperor Napoleon—and they began to prepare for an invasion of England.[20] 21 And in his place or office in Syria shall arise a contemptuous and contemptible person, to whom royal majesty and honour of the kingdom have not been given. But he shall come in without warning in time of security and shall obtain the kingdom by flatteries, intrigues, and cunning hypocritical conduct. [Dan. 8:9-12, 23-25.] (Dan 11:21) Ampl Napoleon knew how to delegate authority. He knew how to allow a supposed authority to do his dirty work for him. He used General Pierre Augereau to coup d'état the political forces that stood opposed to him and purged the royalists in Paris, the capital of France. He then made a peace agreement with the Austrians so that he would be in favour with the people, acting in as if in the interested of the people of France, winning fame and the vote of the people for himself, securing his position as the Emperor of France. The final plan to secure the position of power and absolute control in the entire world, will be accompanied by the breaking off of the one who was called the raiser of taxes, as is written in the book of Daniel, saying: 11 Then shall stand up in his place or office one who shall send an exactor of tribute to pass through the glory of the kingdom, but within a few days he shall be destroyed, yet neither in anger nor in battle. (Dan 11:20) Ampl By the gift of signs and wonders and the gift of prophecy, the Holy Spirit revealed, through signs made in the heavens, to two of us saw at the same time, that one will be broken off or removed by a freak accident. This one will be the same as the one that was revealed in an earlier vision to Daniel the prophet, saying: 8 “And the he-goat magnified himself exceedingly, and when he was young and strong, the great horn was suddenly broken; and instead of him there came up four notable horns to whom the kingdom was divided, one toward each of the four winds of the heavens. 9 Out of littleness and small beginnings one of them came forth, a horn whose impious presumption and pride grew exceedingly great toward the south and toward the east and toward the ornament the precious, blessed land of Israel.” [Dan. 8:23.] (Dan 8:8The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

9) Ampl Although Napoleon did not originally come from noble birth; he rose up and became the most powerful man in France. He was eventually given the status of Emperor of France. The final goal of the Anti-Christ is the rulership of the world and its armies and peoples. Egyptian expedition After two months of planning, Bonaparte decided France's naval power was not yet strong enough to confront the Royal Navy in the English Channel and proposed a military expedition to seize Egypt and thereby undermine Britain's access to its trade interests in India.[20] Bonaparte wished to establish a French presence in the Middle East, with the ultimate dream of linking with a Muslim enemy of the British in India, Tipu Sultan.[43] Napoleon assured the Directory that "as soon as he had conquered Egypt, he will establish relations with the Indian princes and, together with them, attack the English in Bonaparte Before the their possessions."[44] According to a February 1798 report by Talleyrand: "Having Sphinx, (ca. 1868) by Jeanoccupied and fortified Egypt, we shall send a force of 15,000 men from Suez to Léon Gérôme, Hearst Castle India, to join the forces of Tipu-Sahib and drive away the English."[44] The Directory, though troubled by the scope and cost of the enterprise, agreed so the popular general would be absent from the centre of power.[45] In May 1798, Bonaparte was elected a member of the French Academy of Sciences. His Egyptian expedition included a group of 167 scientists: mathematicians, naturalists, chemists and geodesists among them; their discoveries included the Rosetta Stone and their work was published in the Description de l'Égypte in 1809.[46]

Battle of the Pyramids, Francois-Louis-Joseph Watteau, 1798-1799

En route to Egypt, Bonaparte reached Malta on 9 June 1798, then controlled by the Knights Hospitaller. The two hundred Knights of French origin did not support the Grand Master, Prussian Ferdinand von Hompesch zu Bolheim, who had succeeded a Frenchman, and made it clear they would not fight against their compatriots. Hompesch surrendered after token resistance and Bonaparte captured a very important naval base with the loss of only three men.[47]

General Bonaparte and his expedition eluded pursuit by the Royal Navy and on 1 July landed at Alexandria.[20] Bonaparte successfully fought the Battle of Chobrakit against the Mamluks, an old power in the Middle East. This helped the French plan their attack in the Battle of the Pyramids fought over a week later, about 6 km from the pyramids. General Bonaparte's forces were greatly outnumbered by the Mamluks' cavalry—20,000 against 60,000—but he formed hollow squares with supplies kept safely inside. 300 French and approximately 6,000 Egyptians were killed.[48] On 1 August, the British fleet under Horatio Nelson captured or destroyed all but two French vessels in the Battle of the Nile and Bonaparte's goal of a strengthened French position in the Mediterranean Sea was frustrated.[49] The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

His army had nonetheless succeeded in a temporary increase of French power in Egypt, though it faced repeated uprisings.[50] In early 1799, he moved the army into the Ottoman province of Damascus (Syria and Galilee). Bonaparte led these 13,000 French soldiers in the conquest of the coastal towns of Arish, Gaza, Jaffa, and Haifa.[51] The attack on Jaffa was particularly brutal: Bonaparte, on discovering many of the defenders were former prisoners of war, ostensibly on parole, ordered the garrison and 1,400 prisoners to be executed by bayonet or drowning to save bullets.[49] Men, women and children were robbed and murdered for three days.[52] With his army weakened by disease — mostly bubonic plague — and poor supplies, Bonaparte was unable to reduce the fortress of Acre, and returned to Egypt in May.[49] To speed up the retreat, he ordered plague-stricken men to be poisoned.[53] His supporters have argued this decision was necessary given the continued harassment of stragglers by Ottoman forces and those left behind alive were indeed tortured and beheaded by the Ottomans. Back in Egypt, on 25 July, Bonaparte defeated an Ottoman amphibious invasion at Abukir.[54] Main article: French Invasion of Egypt (1798) I will not go in much detail here but only say mention here that Egypt will be destroyed, because they have gone into an alliance with the nations of the east against Israel and this will led to their destruction. See Fasting Journal - Part 2 - An Ungodly Alliance. French Consulate Though Sieyès expected to dominate the new regime, he was outmanoeuvred by Bonaparte, who drafted the Constitution of the Year VIII and secured his own election as First Consul.[59] This made Bonaparte the most powerful person in France and he took up residence at the Tuileries.[49] Main articles: French Consulate and War of the Second Coalition.

Napoleon Crossing the Alps (1800)

When the man to become the prophesied Anti-Christ, arise to his position he would have to remove those who still oppose him in order to secure his position. Once he has removed every opposing person or nation whom he hated, in fear all the rest of the nations will give in to his desire and consent with his decisions, thus bowing before him. Libya and Egypt will be amongst those who would pose a thread to him. Even the nations of Syria, Palestine and Lebanon will not escape from his hand. Temporary peace in Europe Bonaparte set up a camp at Boulogne-sur-Mer to prepare for an invasion of Britain but both countries had become tired of war and signed the Treaty of Amiens in October 1801 and March 1802; this included the withdrawal of British troops from most colonial territories it had recently occupied.[61] The peace was uneasy and short-lived; Britain did not evacuate Malta as promised and protested against Bonaparte's annexation of Piedmont and his Act of Mediation, which established a new Swiss Confederation, though neither of these territories were covered by the Treaty.[63] The dispute culminated in a declaration of war by Britain in May 1803, and he reassembled the invasion camp at Boulogne.[49] Main articles: Napoleon's planned invasion of the United The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

Detail from Napoleon Crossing the Alps (1800) For more on the historic background see Napoleon Bonaparte Just like Napoleon, although he outmanoeuvred everybody to get to the top he will not remain long. He would have arched enemies to destroy, who would come up against him when he betray them, breaking the covenant or peace treaty. The French Empire Napoleon faced royalist and Jacobin plots as France's ruler, including the Conspiration des poignards [Daggers conspiracy] in October 1800 and the Plot of the Rue Saint-Nicaise two months later.[70] In January 1804, his police uncovered an assassination plot against him which involved Moreau and which was ostensibly sponsored by the Bourbon former rulers of France. On the advice of Talleyrand, Napoleon ordered the kidnapping of the Duke of Enghien, in violation of neighbouring Baden's sovereignty. After a secret trial the Duke was executed, even though he had not been involved in the plot.[71] Many will be assassinated and removed like pawns from a chess board before the AntiChrist will arise are the Emperor of the world. During the fast the Lord showed us how before his rise to power he will indirectly be the cause of the removal of the arrogant on in the west, breaking off the horn of the ram coming from the west, and the head of the Illuminati. After he rose to power he will continue to, in cold blood, execute those in the eastern nations of Libya and Algeria and Egypt will oppose him in order to establish his world empire or one world government. Napoleon used the plot to justify the re-creation of a hereditary monarchy in France, with himself as Emperor, as a Bourbon restoration would be more difficult if the Bonapartist succession was entrenched in the constitution.[72] See the Fasting Journal - Part 16 - An Evil and a Treacherous plan Napoleon crowned himself Emperor Napoleon I on 2 December 1804 at Notre Dame de Paris and then crowned Joséphine Empress. Claims that he seized the crown out of the hands of Pope Pius VII during the ceremony—to avoid his subjugation to the authority of the pontiff—are apocryphal; the coronation procedure had been agreed in advance.[note 8] At Milan Cathedral on 26 May 1805, Napoleon was crowned King of Italy with the Iron Crown of Lombardy. He created eighteen Marshals of the Empire from amongst his top generals, to secure the allegiance of the army. Ludwig van Beethoven, a long-time admirer, was disappointed at this turn towards imperialism, and scratched his dedication to Napoleon from his 3rd Symphony.[72] Main article: First French Empire. 14 In those times many shall rise up against the king of the South; also the men of violence among your own people shall lift themselves up in order to fulfil the visions formerly revealed, but they shall fail and fall. 15 Then the king of the North shall come and cast up siege works and take a well-fortified city, and the forces of the South shall not stand, or even his chosen troops, for there shall be no strength to stand The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

against the Syrian king. 16 But he who comes against him from Syria shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him; he shall stand in the glorious land of Israel, and in his hand shall be destruction and all the land shall be in his power. (Dan 11:14-16) Ampl Just like no one was able to stand before, the newly crowned, arrogant Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte; no one will be able to stand before the one who will worship the god of war. He will have destruction in his hand and before him the armies which seemed overwhelming will be swept away. He will at this time invade Israel and fulfill the prophecy, as was fore sawn by the prophet Daniel, by the apostle Paul and by Jesus Christ, saying: “And armed forces of his shall appear in the holy land and they shall pollute the sanctuary, the spiritual stronghold, and shall take away the continual daily burnt offering; and they shall set up in the sanctuary the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate [probably an altar to a pagan god]. (Dan 11:31) Ampl Emperor Napoleon’s defiance of papal authority was seen as apocryphal, the fulfilment of prophecy. So closely did Napoleon resemble the Anti-Christ, that he was recognized as a type of the coming Anti-Christ, who would defy all worldly and religious authority. The Anti-Christ would defy all religious authority. No one religion would he accept to continue existing, not the Christian faiths, not the Moslem faiths, nor the Hindu faiths, nor the Jewish faith. Jesus prophesied about those days, saying: 15 “So when you see the appalling sacrilege, the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate, spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place, let the reader take notice and ponder and consider and heed this [Dan. 9:27; 11:31; 12:11.] 16 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains; 17 Let him who is on the housetop not come down and go into the house to take anything; 18 And let him who is in the field not turn back to get his overcoat. 19 And alas for the women who are pregnant and for those who have nursing babies in those days! 20 Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, affliction, distress, and oppression, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be again. [Dan. 12:1; Joel 2:2.] 22 And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would endure and survive, but for the sake of the elect, God's chosen ones, those days will be shortened. (Matt 24:15-22) Ampl At the time when the AntiChrist enters Jerusalem, he will make his hatred of all religions obvious. He will show his arrogant defiance of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, by defiling the temple in Jerusalem. By this he will in also begin his show his hatred toward all Jews and Christians. He will start to fulfill the prophecies, as was prophesied, saying: 6 And the woman fled into the desert wilderness, where she has a retreat prepared for her by God, in which she is to be fed and kept safe for 1,260 days, 42 months; three and one-half years. 7 Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels went forth to battle with the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought. 8 But they were defeated, and there was no room found for them in heaven any longer. 9 And the huge dragon was cast down and out, that age-old serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, he who The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

[Gen. 3:1, 14, 15; Zech. 3:1.] (Rev12:6-9) Ampl Satan’s hatred of God and His people, both Jew and Christian, will become very evident. The man of sin, Satan incarnated on earth, will start a relentless persecution, against all God’s people, who were not caught up into heaven, after the women gave birth to the man child, as is written: “16 So then the dragon was furious and enraged at the woman, and he went away to wage war on the remainder of her descendants, on those who obey God's commandments and who have the testimony of Jesus Christ and adhere to it and bear witness to Him. (Rev 12:17) Ampl At this time second seal will be the opening, as was written: 3 “And when He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature call out: “Come!” 4 And another horse came out, flaming red. And its rider was empowered to take the peace from the earth, so that men slaughtered one another; and he was given a huge sword. (Rev 6:3-4) Ampl At that time peace will be taken from the earth and all hell will literally break loose on the earth. A great persecution will begin on the earth. So terrible will be this persecution of both Jew and Christian, for they will refuse to bow before him; that Jesus said, unless those days were cut short no flesh would have survived. So terrible will he in absolute arrogance, filled with Satanic hatred for YHWH, kill relentlessly, just like Hitler, who killed more than 6 million Jews and thousands of Protestant believers, that Jesus Himself will come to end his reign of terror. The apostle Paul taught and warned the church that Jesus can not be revealed unless the Anti-Christ is revealed first, saying: 3 “Let no one deceive or beguile you in any way, for that day will not come except the apostasy comes first; unless the predicted great falling away of those who have professed to be Christians has come, and the man of lawlessness (sin) is revealed, who is the son of doom (of perdition), [Dan. 7:25; 8:25; I Tim. 4:1.] 4 Who opposes and exalts himself so proudly and insolently against and over all that is called God or that is worshiped, even to his actually taking his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming that he himself is God.

invade England.[73] However, after defeat at the naval Battle of Cape Finisterre in July 1805 and Admiral Villeneuve's retreat to Cadiz, invasion was never again a realistic option for Napoleon.[74] Instead, he ordered the army stationed at Boulogne, his Grande ArmÊe, to secretly march to Germany in a turning movement—the Ulm Campaign. This encircled the Austrian forces about to attack France and severed their lines of communication. On 20 October 1805, the French captured 30,000 prisoners at Ulm, though the next day Britain's victory at the Battle of Trafalgar meant the Royal Navy gained control of the seas. Six weeks later, on the first anniversary of his coronation, Napoleon defeated Austria and Russia at Austerlitz. This ended the Third Coalition and he commissioned the Arc de Triomphe to commemorate the victory. Austria had to concede territory: the Peace of Pressburg led to the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire and creation of the Confederation of the Rhine with Napoleon named as its Protector.[75] Napoleon would go on to say that "The battle of Austerlitz is the finest of all I have fought."[76] Frank McLynn suggests Napoleon was so successful at Austerlitz he lost touch with reality, and what used to be French foreign policy became a "personal Napoleonic one".[77] Vincent Cronin disagrees, stating Napoleon was not overly ambitious for himself, that "he embodied the ambitions of thirty million Frenchmen".[78] Main article: War of the Third Coalition 12 When the multitude is taken and carried away, the heart and mind of the Egyptian king shall be exalted, and he shall cast down tens of thousands, but he shall not prevail. (Dan 11:12) Ampl The alliance the Egyptians will make with the prince of deceit will not stand. God will humble all those who exalted themselves against Him and His people. Although at first it will seemed like the Egyptian armies has prospered in working with the Anti-Christ against the Jewish people they will fall and their plans will come to nothing. Middle-Eastern alliances Even after the failed campaign in Egypt, Napoleon continued to entertain a grand scheme to establish a French presence in the Middle East.[43] An alliance with MiddleEastern powers would have the strategic advantage of pressuring Russia on its southern border. From 1803, Napoleon went to considerable lengths to try to convince the Ottoman Empire to fight against Russia in the Balkans and join his anti-Russian coalition.[79] Napoleon sent General Horace Sebastiani as envoy extraordinary, promising to help the Ottoman Empire recover lost territories.[79] In February 1806, following Napoleon's victory at Austerlitz and the ensuing dismemberment of the Habsburg Empire, the Ottoman Emperor Selim III finally recognized Napoleon as Emperor, formally opting for an alliance with France "our sincere and natural ally", and war with Russia and England.[80] A Franco-Persian alliance was also formed, from 1807 to 1809, between Napoleon and the Persian Empire of Fath Ali Shah, against Russia and Great Britain.

focus to European campaigns.[43] Main articles: Franco-Ottoman alliance and Franco-Persian alliance. In order for the man of lawlessness, to come into position and be accepted by the whole world, he must convince both the western and the eastern nations. He will make alliances with the eastern nations, promising them much riches and spoil if they would back him up in war. He will convince them to trust in his peace treaty with them, while behind the scenes he will, through espionage, instigate the west against the east in order to step in as the peace maker. He will act as a double agent for both the east and the west, in his own favour, in order to remove another arrogant one, whom he will only use as a pawn to attain his position of acceptance, authority and power. Later he will break this peace agreement again in order to wipe out the nations of the east, so that he alone could control the whole world, under the acceptance of the people, through the popes appointed divinity.

Napoleon placed puppet rulers on the thrones of German states, including his brother J茅r么me as king of the new Kingdom of Westphalia. In the French-controlled part of Poland, he established the Duchy of Warsaw with King Frederick Augustus I of Saxony as ruler.[83] With his Milan and Berlin Decrees, Napoleon attempted to enforce a Europe-wide commercial boycott of Britain called the Continental System. This act of economic warfare did not succeed, as it encouraged British merchants to smuggle into continental Europe and Napoleon's exclusively land-based customs enforcers could not stop them.[84] Main article: War of the Fourth Coalition Peninsular War Portugal did not comply with the Continental System so, in 1807, Napoleon invaded with the support of Spain. Under the pretext of a reinforcement of the Franco-Spanish army occupying Portugal, Napoleon invaded Spain as well, replaced Charles IV with his brother Joseph and placed his brother-in-law Joachim Murat in Joseph's stead at Naples. This led to resistance from the Spanish army and civilians in the Dos de Mayo Uprising.[85] Following a French retreat from much of the country, Napoleon took command and defeated the Spanish Army. He retook Madrid, then outmanoeuvred a British army sent to support the Spanish and drove it to the coast.[86] The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

Before the Spanish population had been fully subdued, Austria again threatened war and Napoleon returned to France.[87] Main article: Peninsular War The costly and often brutal Peninsular War continued in Napoleon's absence; in the second Siege of Saragossa most of the city was destroyed and over 50,000 people perished.[88] Although Napoleon left 300,000 of his finest troops to battle Spanish guerrillas as well as British and Portuguese forces commanded by Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, French control over the peninsula again deteriorated.[89] Following several allied victories, the war concluded after Napoleon's abdication in 1814.[90] Napoleon later described the Peninsular War as central to his final defeat, writing in his memoirs That unfortunate war destroyed me... All... my disasters are bound up in that fatal knot.[91] Jewish emancipation Napoleon emancipated Jews from laws which restricted them to ghettos, and expanded their rights to property, worship, and careers. Despite the anti-semitic reaction to Napoleon's policies from foreign governments and within France, he believed emancipation would benefit France by attracting Jews to the country given the restrictions they faced elsewhere.[164] He stated that, "I will never accept any proposals that will obligate the Jewish people to leave France, because to me the Jews are the same as any other citizen in our country. It takes weakness to chase them out of the country, but it takes strength to assimilate them."[165] He was seen as so favorable to the Jews that the Russian Orthodox Church formally condemned him as "Antichrist and the Enemy of God".[166] Further information: Napoleon and the Jews. 9 Out of littleness and small beginnings one of them came forth, a horn whose impious presumption and pride grew exceedingly great toward the south and toward the east and toward the ornament the precious, blessed land of Israel. [Dan. 8:23.] 10 And in my vision this horn grew great, even against the host of heaven, God's true people, the saints, and some of the host and of the stars priests it cast down to the ground and trampled on them, 11 Yes, this horn magnified itself, even matching itself against the Prince of the host of heaven; and from Him the continual burnt offering was taken away and the place of God's sanctuary was cast down and profaned. 12 And the host the chosen people was given to the wicked horn together with the continual burnt offering because of the transgression of God's people, their abounding irreverence, ungodliness, and lack of piety. And righteousness and truth were cast down to the ground, and it the wicked horn accomplished this by divine permission and prospered. (Dan 8:9-12) Ampl The man, to become the Anti-Christ, will not come from noble birth. He will in his arrogance set himself against the state of Israel, because he hates their God – YHWH. This man will go out to show to the world that there is no God. By forcing the Jewish people, who are sacrificing at the temple at that stage, to seize, he will attempt to prove his dominance and authority over God’s people, both the Jews and Christians. In defiance he will attempt to prove that there is no other God except himself. 22 And as for the horn which was shattered, in whose place four others arose, four kingdoms shall arise out of his nation but not having his power. 23 And at the latter end of their kingdom, when the transgressors, the apostate Jews, have reached the fullness of their wickedness, taxing the limits of The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

God's mercy, a king of fierce countenance and understanding dark trickery and craftiness shall stand up. 24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; and he shall corrupt and destroy astonishingly and shall prosper and do his own pleasure, and he shall corrupt and destroy the mighty men and the holy people, the people of the saints. [Dan. 8:9-12; II Thess. 2:3-10; Rev. 13:4-10.] 25 And through his policy he shall cause trickery to prosper in his hand; he shall magnify himself in his heart and mind, and in their security he will corrupt and destroy many. He shall also stand up against the Prince of princes, but he shall be broken and that by no human hand. [Rev. 19:19, 20.] (Dan 8:22-25) Ampl This king of fierce features, will arise through dark schemes and plans, which Satan himself will give him, in order to destroy God’s people and show that he is God and not Yeshua. The man of sin, the Anti-Christ will bribe, make treaties and alliances in order to accomplish his purpose and plan to rule the world. In order to do this he reasons that he must rule the state of Israel and Jerusalem, because in his heart he says to himself: “He who rules Jerusalem, rules the world.� 16 But he who comes against him from Syria shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him; he shall stand in the glorious land of Israel, and in his hand shall be destruction and all the land shall be in his power. 17 shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom, and with him upright conditions and terms of peace, and he shall perform them by making an agreement with the king of the South. He shall give him his daughter to corrupt and destroy it his league with Egypt and the kingdom, but it shall not succeed or be to his advantage. (Dan 11:16-17) Ampl In order to attain Jerusalem and rule over those in Israel, he will make an alliance with the rulers of Egypt and the rulers of the Eastern nations. He promises to give them the state of Israel as a price in order to bring peace in the world, thus making peace. He will work deceitfully behind the scenes influencing all those leaders who he desires to be on his side. As soon as he is given an army to concur Israel, he will break his covenant with them and take Israel as booty for himself, thus proclaiming himself the ruler of the world and the only God of all man kind. 28 Then shall the vile conqueror from the North return into his land with much booty; and his heart and purpose shall be set against God's holy covenant with His people, and he shall accomplish his malicious intention and return to his own land Syria. 29 At the time appointed God's own time he shall return and come into the South, but it shall not be successful as were the former invasions of Egypt. 30 For the ships of Kittim or Cyprus, in Roman hands shall come against him; therefore he shall be grieved and discouraged and turn back to Palestine and carry out his rage and indignation against the holy covenant and God's people, and he shall do his own pleasure; he shall even turn back and make common cause with those Jews who abandon the holy covenant with God. 31 And armed forces of his shall appear in the holy land and they shall pollute the sanctuary, the spiritual stronghold, and shall take away the continual daily burnt offering; and they shall set up in the sanctuary the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate probably an altar to a pagan god. 32 And such as violate the covenant he shall pervert and seduce with flatteries, but the people who know their God shall prove themselves strong and shall stand firm and do exploits for God.

is defiance against YHWH, Elohim, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He will attempt to win the favour of the some of the most influential ones in the world and especially in Israel. Those who trust in his lies will be swept away by his flatteries. He will take the state of Israel by force and pollute the temple of YHWH to prove that their really is no God. Then he will set up a pagan god in the temple in order to deify himself before all men on the earth. When he breaks the alliance with Egypt and the eastern nations, not keeping to his promise of giving Jerusalem over to them as he promised, they will come up against him, in an attempt to humble him and take back what they consider to be theirs. This will lead to their annihilation and desolation, as all the prophets prophesied. He will be successful against them, by wiping them nearly off the face of the earth. Then in the latter days of his reign their will muster another army against him and will destroy his trusted stronghold and armies. First French Empire - "Empire of the French" and "Napoleonic Empire" The French Empire[2][3] (1804–1814), also known as the Greater French Empire, First French Empire or Napoleonic Empire, was the empire of Napoleon I in France. It was the dominant power of much of continental Europe during the early 19th Century. Napoleon became Emperor of the French ("L'Empereur des Français") on 18 May 1804 and crowned Emperor December 2, 1804, ending the period of the French Consulate, and won early military victories in the War of the Third Coalition against Austria, Prussia, Russia, Portugal, and allied nations, notably at the Battle of Austerlitz (1805) and the Battle of Friedland (1807). The Treaty of Tilsit in July 1807 ended two years of bloodshed on the European continent. Subsequent years of military victories known collectively as the Napoleonic Wars extended French influence over much of Western Europe and into Poland. At its height in 1812, the French Empire had 130 départements, ruled over 44 million subjects, maintained extensive military presence in Germany, Italy, Spain, and the Duchy of Warsaw, and could count Prussia and Austria as nominal allies.[4] Early French victories exported many ideological features of the French Revolution throughout Europe. Seigneurial dues and seigneurial justice were abolished, aristocratic privileges were eliminated in all places except Poland, and the introduction of the Napoleonic Code throughout the continent increased legal equality, established jury systems, and legalized divorce.[5] Napoleon placed relatives on the thrones of several European countries and granted many noble titles, most of which were not recognized after the empire fell. Historians have estimated the death toll from the Napoleonic Wars to be 6.5 million people, or 15% of the French Empire's subjects. However, French losses in the Peninsular War in Iberia severely weakened the Empire; after victory over the Austrian Empire in the War of the Fifth Coalition (1809) Napoleon deployed over 600,000 troops to attack Russia,[6] in a catastrophic French invasion of that country in 1812. The War of the Sixth Coalition saw the expulsion of French forces from Germany in 1813. Napoleon abdicated in 1814. The Empire was briefly restored during the Hundred Days period in 1815 until Napoleon's defeat at the Battle of Waterloo. It was followed by the restored monarchy of the House of Bourbon.

7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, the Roman empire, terrible, powerful and dreadful, and exceedingly strong. And it had great iron teeth; it devoured and crushed and trampled what was left with its feet. And it was different from all the beasts that came before it, and it had ten horns symbolizing ten kings]. [Dan. 2:40-43; 7:23.] 8 I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, before which three of the first horns were plucked up by the roots; and behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth speaking great things. 19 Then I wished to know the truth about the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceedingly terrible and shocking, whose teeth were of iron and its nails of bronze, which devoured, broke and crushed, and trampled what was left with its feet. 20 And about the ten horns representing kings that were on its head, and the other horn which came up later and before which three of the horns fell, the horn which had eyes and a mouth that spoke great things and which looked greater than the others. 21 As I looked, this horn made war with the saints and prevailed over them. 22 Until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High God, and the time came when the saints possessed the kingdom. 23 Thus the angel said: “The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms and shall devour the whole earth, tread it down, and break it in pieces and crush it. 24 And as for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise; and another shall arise after them, and he shall be different from the former ones, and he shall subdue and put down three kings. 25 And he shall speak words against the Most High God and shall wear out the saints of the Most High and think to change the time of sacred feasts and holy days and the law; and the saints shall be given into his hand for a time, two times, and half a time, three and one-half years. 26 But the judgment shall be set by the court of the Most High, and they shall take away his dominion to consume it gradually and to destroy it suddenly in the end. 27 And the kingdom and the dominion and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heavens shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High; His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all the dominions shall serve and obey Him. (Dan 7:7-27) Ampl After Napoleon became Emperor the French Empire came into existence. The prophet Daniel sees a kingdom that will arise in the last days. This kingdom will consist out of 10 kings. Out of one of the kingdoms will come up a powerful and fierce king, who will remove three of those 10 kings, in order to rule the world. This king will be so arrogant that he will try to prove that God’s times and seasons are not true and does not exists, but God will prove him wrong and all will come to pass, just as Elohim had said it would, for He alone is the First and the Last, the Ever Living One. 12 Also the ten horns that you observed are ten rulers or kings who have as yet received no royal dominion, but together they are to receive power and authority as rulers for a single hour, along with the beast. 13 These have one common policy, opinion and purpose and they deliver their power and authority to the beast. (Rev 17:12-13) Ampl These 10 kings will not rule their respective kingdoms for very long. They will be 10 kings who will receive power to rule under and with the Anti-Christ, the Beast for a short while – 3.5 years. They will agree to all that this, one man, says they must do, for fear of his power and rule.

At the crossroads The application of the Concordat and the taking of Naples led to the first of those struggles with the pope in which were formulated two antagonistic doctrines: Napoleon declaring himself Roman Emperor, and Pius VII renewing the theocratic affirmations of Pope Gregory VII. The Emperor's Roman ambition was made more visible by the occupation of the Kingdom of Naples and of the Marches, and by the entry of Miollis into Rome; while Junot invaded Portugal, Radet laid hands on the Pope himself, and Joachim Murat took possession of formerly Roman Spain, whither Joseph Bonaparte transferred afterwards. 1 As I stood on the sandy beach, I saw a beast coming up out of the sea with ten horns and seven heads. On his horns he had ten royal crowns and blasphemous titles or names on his heads. 2 And the beast that I saw resembled a leopard, but his feet were like those of a bear and his mouth was like that of a lion. And to him the dragon gave his own might and power and his own throne and great dominion. 3 And one of his heads seemed to have a deadly wound. But his death stroke was healed; and the whole earth went after the beast in amazement and admiration. 4 They fell down and paid homage to the dragon, because he had bestowed on the beast all his dominion and authority; they also praised and worshiped the beast, exclaiming: “Who is a match for the beast, and, Who can make war against him?” 5 And the beast was given the power of speech, uttering boastful and blasphemous words, and he was given freedom to exert his authority and to exercise his will during forty-two months or three and a half years. 6 And he opened his mouth to speak slanders against God, blaspheming His name and His abode, even vilifying those who live in heaven. 7 He was further permitted to wage war on God's holy people (the saints) and to overcome them. And power was given him to extend his authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation, 8 And all the inhabitants of the earth will fall down in adoration and pay him homage, everyone whose name has not been recorded in the Book of Life of the Lamb that was slain in sacrifice from the foundation of the world. (Rev 13:1-8) Ampl The Anti-Christ’s reign is described in much detail to the apostle John, Jesus’ beloved disciple. Just like Napoleon di not only want to become Emperor, but also prove that he is God over all religions, even the Holy Roman Catholic Church, so the Anti-Christ will not allow the Roman Catholic church to exert its power over him. Instead the Roman Catholic Church will convince the world that this man is equal to a high Priest and must therefore be honored in thus manner. The apostle John is shown two beasts. One, a beast who will rule the whole earth; he will rule every tribe, tongue and language on the earth. All the earth will worship and acknowledge his reign as divine and sovereign, as if he is God, thus denying YHWH and His Son, as their God and only Saviour. 11 Then I saw another beast rising up out of the land itself; he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke roared like a dragon. 12 He exerts all the power and right of control of the former beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell upon it to exalt and deify the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed, and to worship him. 13 He performs great signs, startling miracles, even making fire fall from the sky to the earth in men's sight. 14 And because of the signs and miracles, which he is allowed to perform in the presence of the first beast, he deceives those who inhabit the earth, commanding them to erect a statue, an image, in the likeness of the beast, who was wounded by the small sword and still The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

lived. [Deut. 13:1-5.] 15 And he is permitted also to impart the breath of life into the beast's image, so that the statue of the beast could actually talk and cause to be put to death those who would not bow down and worship the image of the beast. [Dan. 3:5.] 16 Also he compels all alike, both small and great, both the rich and the poor, both free and slave, to be marked with an inscription stamped on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 So that no one will have power to buy or sell unless he bears the stamp (mark, inscription), that is the name of the beast or the number of his name. 18 Here is room for discernment a call for the wisdom of interpretation. Let anyone who has intelligence, penetration and insight, calculate the number of the beast, for it is a human number the number of a certain man; his number is 666. (Rev 13:1-18) Ampl Napoleon was a very clever man. He knew if former monarchs could be overthrown by the people, then he also could easily loose his position. Thus he controlled the media and the people, by pleasing them. He overthrew the pope, but then allowed him back in his position, giving himself as Emperor even more power over the church and the people, who worshipped. The Anti-Christ, Satan incarnate in the flesh, will now use his age old satanic devises to deceive all mankind. Just like Cain killed Abel, because of worship, the people of this world in fear and deceit will turn to the pope for help. Satan will give the pope his authority and power over the masses of people who will believe all that the pope whom most also considered as divine. If he whom the world sees as divine appoints the Anti-Christ as God on the earth, the whole world will wonder after the beast. This will begin the worst persecution that the earth has ever seen. All those who them oppose the Pope’s appointed king, will be killed. 13 And I saw three loathsome spirits like frogs, leaping from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet. [Exod. 8:3; I Kings 22:21-23.] 14 For really they are the spirits of demons that perform signs, wonders and miracles. And they go forth to the rulers and leaders all over the world, to gather them together for war on the great day of God the Almighty. (Rev 16:13-14) Ampl Satan has only one agenda, the annihilation of all mankind. By means of demons he will instigate a great war on the earth – World War III or the Armageddon war. He will deceive mankind by lying wonders, which God will allow him to do, because they refuse to believe in Yeshua, as their Messiah. 3 And the angel bore me away rapt in the Spirit into a desert or wilderness, and I saw a woman seated on a scarlet beast that was all covered with blasphemous titles or names, and he had seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was robed in purple and scarlet and bedecked with gold, precious stones, and pearls, and she was holding in her hand a golden cup full of the accursed offenses and the filth of her lewdness and vice. [Jer. 51:7.] 5 And on her forehead there was inscribed a name of mystery with a secret symbolic meaning: Babylon the great, the mother of prostitutes or idolatresses and of the filth and atrocities and abominations of the earth. 6 I also saw that the woman was drunk, drunk with the blood of the saints, God's people, and the blood of the martyrs who witnessed for Jesus. And when I saw her, I was utterly amazed and wondered greatly. 7 But the angel said to me: “Why do you wonder? I will explain to you the secret symbolic meaning of the mystery of the woman, as well as of the beast having the seven heads and ten horns that carries her.” (Rev 18:3-7) Ampl The Lord Jesus, by His angel, which He had sent to John, on the Island of Patmos, explained the other beast, the false prophet, who leads the whole world astray.

were lead astray because of them prostituting themselves with the gods of Babylon, calling her the mother of prostitutes. The whole world was deceived because of their desire for pleasure and riches, not realizing that they are being deceived by Satan, lying and deceiving spirits. The Roman Catholic Church, through the ages has burnt, martyred and brutally killed all who did not bow down to her. Not she will ascribe her law to the Anti-Christ. Who hates all who do not worship him alone. Intrigues and unrest But undermining forces already impinged the faults inherent in his unwieldy achievement. Britain, protected by the English Channel and her navy, was persistently active; and rebellion both of the governing and of the governed broke out everywhere. Napoleon felt his failure in coping with the Spanish Uprising, which he underrated, while yet unable to suppress it altogether. Men like Stein, Hardenberg and Scharnhorst had secretly started preparing Prussia's retaliation. Napoleon's formidable material power could not stand against the moral force of the pope, now a prisoner at Fontainebleau; and this he did not realise. The alliance arranged at Tilsit was seriously shaken by the Austrian marriage, the threat of a Polish restoration, and the unfriendly policy of Napoleon at Constantinople. The very persons whom he had placed in power were counteracting his plans: after four years' experience Napoleon found himself obliged to treat his Corsican dynasties like those of the ancien rĂŠgime, and all his relations were betraying him. Caroline Bonaparte conspired against her brother and against her husband Murat; the hypochondriac Louis, now Dutch in his sympathies, found the supervision of the blockade taken from him, and also the defence of the Scheldt, which he had refused to ensure; Jerome Bonaparte, idling in his harem, lost that of the North Sea shores; and Joseph, who was attempting the moral conquest of Spain, was continually insulted at Madrid. The very nature of things was against the new dynasties, as it had been against the old. After national insurrections and family recriminations came treachery from Napoleon's ministers. Talleyrand betrayed his designs to Metternich and suffered dismissal; Joseph FouchĂŠ corresponded with Austria in 1809 and 1810, entered into an understanding with Louis, and also with Britain; while Bourrienne was convicted of speculation. By a natural consequence of the spirit of conquest Napoleon had aroused, all these parvenus, having tasted victory, dreamed of sovereign power: Bernadotte, who had helped him to the Consulate, played Napoleon false to win the crown of Sweden; Soult, like Murat, coveted the Spanish throne after that of Portugal, thus anticipating the treason of 1813 and the defection of 1814; many persons hoped for "an accident" which might resemble the tragic ends of Alexander the Great and of Julius Caesar. The country itself, besides, though flattered by conquests, was tired of self-sacrifice. It had become satiated; "the cry of the mothers rose threateningly" against "the Ogre" and his intolerable imposition of wholesale conscription. The soldiers themselves, discontented after Austerlitz, cried out for peace after Eylau.

the literary world, against the excommunicated sovereign by Catholicism, and against the author of the continental blockade by the discontented bourgeoisie, ruined by the crisis of 1811. Even as he lost his military principles, he maintained his gift for brilliance. His six days campaign, which took place at the very end of the Sixth Coalition, is regarded as his greatest display of leadership. But by then it was the end, and it was during the years before when, instead of the armies and governments of the old system, which had hitherto reigned supreme, the nations of Europe conspired against France. And while the Emperor and his holdings idled and worsened the rest of Europe agreed to avenge the events of 1792. The three campaigns of two years (1812–14) would bring total catastrophe. Briefly summed up: Napoleon’s rule was brief and short lived. Napoleon was betrayed by his own people. Even the Anti-Christ, though considered by many to be divine, will be conquered and will die like a man. His reign will be only 3.5 years, 1290 days, as God had predetermined it. The Nature of Bonaparte's Rule Napoleon gained support by appealing to some common concerns of French people. These included dislike of the emigrant nobility who had escaped persecution, fear by some of a restoration of the ancien régime, a dislike and suspicion of foreigners – other countries had tried to reverse the Revolution – and of Great Britain in particular, and a wish by Jacobins to extend France's revolutionary ideals. Bonaparte attracted power and imperial status and gathered support for his changes of French institutions, such as the Concordat of 1801 which confirmed the Catholic Church as the majority church of France and restored some of its civil status. He dampened opposition and Republican enthusiasm, using exile, systematic bureaucratic oppression, and constitutional means. Bonaparte was in a relatively dangerous position compared to other authoritarian European monarchs of the time. Aware that if the French people could overthrow one monarch they could overthrow another, Bonaparte used propaganda to align the opinions of the French people with his foreign policy. He did not claim to be an absolute monarch: rather he believed in enlightened absolutism and, theoretically, his regime was a constitutional monarchy. According to Steven Englund, in his book "Napoleon: A Political Life" (2004), though Napoleon was an autocrat, he had less power than totalitarian 20th century dictators such as Benito Mussolini, Joseph Stalin, or Adolf Hitler, and can be perceived more as a Julius Caesar or Caesar Augustus, precursor to men of realpolitik such as Camillo Benso di Cavour, Napoleon III, and Otto von Bismarck. Napoleon represented a new kind of liberal or democratic authoritarianism. Napoleon however was not a democrat, nor was he a republican. He was, he liked to think, an enlightened despot, the sort of man Voltaire might have found appealing. He preserved numerous social gains of the Revolution while suppressing political liberty. He admired efficiency and strength and hated feudalism, religious intolerance, and civil inequality. Enlightened despotism meant political stability. He knew his Roman history well, as after 500 years of republicanism, Rome became an empire under Augustus Caesar.

Although a supporter of the radical Jacobins during the early days of the Revolution (more out of pragmatism than any real ideology), Napoleon moved to the right as his political career progressed and once in power embraced certain aspects of both liberalism and conservatism — for example, public education, a generally liberal restructuring of the French legal system, and the emancipation of the Jews — while rejecting electoral democracy and freedom of the press. For more information of the First French Empire The rule of Napoleon and the rule of the coming tyrant and rulers of the world, for one hour, with 10 rulers, will come into position through powerful NGO’s behind the scenes, like the Bilderberg Group, who will remove those in their way like pawns on chess board. The Anti-Christ, like a master Chess player will play the game to his own advantage, deceiving both the east and the west, putting himself in the privileged position to become the leader of the Illuminati. He will remove three influential persons, though his espionage and double agents thus becoming the new leader of the world. He will use the power given him through media and the pope’s referral. He will hate and kill all who will not bow down to him, whether Hindu, Moslem, Jew or Christian, proclaiming himself to be God of this earth. This has always been Satan’s desire. God will allow him to destroy all who do not worship Him alone, accepting Yeshua as their God and King. The Anti-Christ wipe out in the process both the eastern and western nations. Israel also will fall into his hands to a time, times and half a time in order to purify them and prepare them for the coming their Messiah – Yeshua.

In conclusion: The man, whom all the prophets spoke about, not the Messiah – Yeshua, but the one who will come on a white horse and will be given a bow, to conquer the nations, the other prince, the son of perdition, will exert God’s punishment on all the nations, until his predestined time has come, when YHWH, Elohim will punish him and cast him and those in whom he had trusted to maintain his authority and power, into the lake of fire. Although the persecution against all those on earth, who still holds to Yeshua and to their witness in YHWH their only Saviour, will be terrible and severe, this will be a refining and cleansing process for both the Jews and the Christians in that time. Daniel is given a glimmer of hope when the angel concluded nearly 2600 years ago, saying: 10 “Many shall purify themselves and make themselves white and be tried, smelted, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly. And none of the wicked shall understand, but the teachers and those who are wise shall understand. [Dan. 11:33-35.] 11 And from the time that the continual burnt offering is taken away and the abomination that makes desolate is set up, there shall be 1,290 days.” [Dan. 11:31.] “12 Blessed, happy, fortunate, spiritually prosperous, and to be envied is he who waits expectantly and earnestly, who endures without wavering beyond the period of tribulation and comes to the 1,335 days! 13 But you, Daniel, who was now over ninety years of age, go your way until the end; for you shall rest and shall stand fast in your allotted place at the end of the days.” [Heb. 11:32-40.] (Dan 12:10-13) Ampl The Servants of the Lord Jesus Christ South Africa, Pretoria info@witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za & witnessesforjesuschrist.co.za All prophecy must be tested by the word of our Father and Lord Jesus Christ.

A time of purification and a making white of our garment, like virgins in Christ, is coming. God is calling all, like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, to not be afraid of the fire and not to deny His name, even to the point of death, but to trust and persevere to the end, if that is your allotted destiny. Let us hold, with unswerving trust to Yeshua, our only hope of Salvation, in these days to come. Let us not forget the word of Jesus Christ, when He, the greatest prophet who ever lived, said: 11 And many false prophets will rise up and deceive and lead many into error. 12 And the love of the great body of people will grow cold, because of the multiplied lawlessness and iniquity, 13 But he who endures to the end will be saved. 14 And this good news of the kingdom or the Gospel, will be preached throughout the whole world as a witness or testimony to all the nations, and then will come the end. 15 So when you see the appalling sacrilege, the abomination that astonishes and makes desolate, spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the Holy Place, let the reader take notice and ponder and consider and heed this. [Dan. 9:27; 11:31; 12:11.] 16 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains; 17 Let him who is on the housetop not come down and go into the house to take anything; 18 And let him who is in the field not turn back to get his overcoat. 19 And alas for the women who are pregnant and for those who have nursing babies in those days! 20 Pray that your flight may not be in winter or on a Sabbath. 21 For then there will be great tribulation, affliction, distress, and oppression, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now no, and never will be again. [Dan. 12:1; Joel 2:2.] 22 And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would endure and survive, but for the sake of the elect, God's chosen ones, those days will be shortened. 23 If anyone says to you then, Behold, here is the Christ or the Messiah! or, There He is! Do not believe it. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise, and they will show great signs and wonders so as to deceive and lead astray, if possible, even the elect, God's chosen ones. 25 See, I have warned you beforehand. 26 So if they say to you: “Behold, He is in the wilderness (desert)” Do not go out there; if they tell you: “Behold, He is in the secret places or inner rooms.” Do not believe it. 27 For just as the lightning flashes from the east and shines and is seen as far as the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28 Wherever there is a fallen body (a corpse), there the vultures (or eagles) will flock together. [Job 39:30.] Let us be wide awake when, he, the Anti-Christ, comes that we may not be caught unaware by Satan’s schemes, and grow cold or be deceived by many false prophets who says that these things will not come to pass, or even worse, who wants us to accept the Anti-Christ as the god of the earth, but let us hold with an undying love to Yeshua aMashiach, who will soon deliver us from the claws of the wicked one.
