A Third Temple
A diverse beast in the making. With so many beasts, how does Daniel come up with only four? It’s the temple. Don’t mess with the temple. They shall take away the daily sacrifice. When you see the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place, understand that it is preventing the daily sacrifice.
A Vision of Daniel
A temple is desolated. What makes a beast a beast? What do they all have in common? The temple. Babylon destroyed the first temple. Greece desecrated the second. Rome destroyed the second. Islam is preventing the third. The Dome of the Rock is the abomination of desolation spoken of by Jesus.
A Beast of Daniel
A connection with the Apocalypse. John knows Daniel. Both have a beast with “ten horns” which should fit with history in the same way. This requires a close look at the King of the North and the King of the South. The fourth beast of Daniel was diverse from all the beasts and must show up somewhere in history.
A beast in the making. What makes a beast a beast? Daniel knows beasts and the abomination of desolation mentioned by Jesus. Babylon destroyed the first temple. Greece desecrated the second and Rome destroyed it. Islam and the Dome of the Rock is preventing the third. The four beasts of Daniel.
A desolation. The abomination of desolation, spoken of by Jesus, leads us to the abomination in Daniel. They shall take away the daily sacrifice. That’s the Temple. The first one destroyed by Babylon. The second desecrated by Greece and destroyed by Rome. Islam is preventing the third. That is what makes a beast a beast.
A Common Beast
A second beast of the Apocalypse. John knows Daniel knows beasts. The beast which he saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. The “ten horns” also ties them together. Numbers tie history to the fulfillment of prophecy.
A beast in the making. Why only four? What makes a beast a beast per Daniel? The Temple. Don’t mess with the Temple. Babylon destroyed the first one. Greece desecrated the second. Rome destroyed the second. Islam is preventing the third. The Dome of the Rock.
A revelation in Daniel. What makes a beast a beast? Daniel knows beasts and abominations. Jesus wanted us to pay attention to them. An abomination is something that you do to the holy place. The Temple. Only a beast would mess with the Temple. With only two Temples, how do you get four beasts?
A Sixth Dynasty
A time when “five are fallen” and the “Valentinianic dynasty” was the sixth dynasty of Rome, Chrysostom was in Ephesus. Whether or not you can count dynasties or kings of the Roman Empire, you can agree it was a beast, one of the four beasts of Daniel. Seven dynasties have been clearly identified by historians.
A Beast With Seven Heads
A dynasty. Rome had seven. Islam had ten. A thousand year Christian empire started with the fifth dynasty of Rome and ended with the tenth dynasty of Islam. Saladin fits the little horn. The “ten horns” ties the fourth beast of Daniel to the second beast of the Apocalypse. There are many other parts that fit.
