A Great Sultan –
A fit with Daniel. Saladin came out of the Fatimid Caliphate, the fourth of ten Islamic dynasties, and would start the fifth, the Ayyubid dynasty. We also have the Battle of the Horns of Hama and the Battle of the Horns of Hattin. Saladin was involved in both of them. He not only beat the crusaders, he beat Richard the Lionheart. It’s a fit.
A Dome of the Rock –
A desolation. What is in the holy place now? The Dome of the Rock is preventing the third temple and that makes Islam a beast different from all the others. The “ten horns” are the ten dynasties of Islam. Counted by Islamic sources. The Ottoman Empire, the tenth dynasty, ended the thousand year Christian empire, The Byzantine Empire, in 1453.
A Scientist –
A project preserving the unfinished works of Sir Isaac Newton who was very interested in Daniel and the Apocalypse which is now available on Kindle. Newton felt self bound to communicate it for the benefit of others. Others felt self bound to bring it to you. It is now bound in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle.
A commentary by Newton who saw the connection between the Apocalypse and Daniel. He also believed the “ten horns” they had in common referred to dynasties. Same for the “seven heads” so the historian should be looking for beasts with seven or ten dynasties. Only historians can count them.
A third temple has not happened and will not happen. Not one stone here will be left upon another. Daniel has three references to the abomination. The first one is Antiochus IV and he shall make it desolate. The second is the Umayyad dynasty and they shall place the Dome of the Rock which now stands in the holy place preventing the daily sacrifice.
A beast. What makes a beast? The temple. Don’t mess with the temple. Daniel’s beasts did. Babylon destroyed the first temple. Greece desecrated the second. Rome destroyed the second. Islam is preventing the third. Enter the Dome of the Rock. What is now in the holy place spoken of by Jesus?
A hatred of the whore. Constantinople, Babylon the Great, fell to the tenth dynasty of Islam in 1453. This ended a thousand year Christian empire that started with the seven dynasties of the Roman Empire. Behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. The “ten horns” ties the fourth beast of Daniel to the second beast of John.
A clue from Daniel. John knows Daniel and Daniel knows number of years. Do we know what happened in the year 666? No. We do know that Muawiyah was preparing to attack Constantinople, the capital of a Christian empire that would last a thousand years, where they reigned with Christ. What does Gibbon know?
A Christian Empire
A reign with Christ. The Byzantine Empire was a Christian empire that lasted a thousand years when they reigned with Christ. Does it fit with the other numbers: 666, ten horns, and seven heads? The number 666 is next. Daniel is a good place to look for clues. Does he know numbers?
A Connection With Daniel
A tenth dynasty that ended the thousand year reign. The ten horns shall hate the whore, Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire, the tenth dynasty of Islam. So who is counting? Islam. That makes Constantinople the mystery Babylon the Great, the only city with all the necessary characteristics.
