I wanted to post an updated version about the “Kings of Persia” as prophesied in Daniel Chapter 10, mainly because of the pathetically weak Biblical writings which I have read on this subject since I posted it years ago. Perhaps this is because most churches wish to remain comfortable within the world and not offend anyone? Or perhaps they are actually spiritually blind, and can’t see past their academia? I’m not sure, but what I do know is what I can plainly see, combined with having 30 years of Bible instruction, and all types of eschatology: but then there is the Truth which is only understood by the Spirit of truth, who is Christ himself!
The overthrow of the west, is an attempted overthrow of anything Christian within its traditional framework. It really starts to snowball after the events in – 2 Thessalonians 2, as “he that restraineth” (Holy Spirit) is taken out of the way. This does not include the Lord’s people, yet it does include the general grace to the world, which helped to keep sin down (restrained it) to a certain degree.
After the restraints come off, sin will run rampant upon the earth, worse than in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. What do we have today, unbridled sin which looks to overturn all of the past restraints predominantly instated by western cultures, and people.
To make matters worse, sin insists on being non-restrained and will war against anyone or any culture which attempts to stand in its way. So then, “Multiculturalism” symbolized as the feet of iron and clay (Adam meaning red, clay) . In Daniel, shows a cobbled together world unified of different people, cultures and religions ruling the world, this is also known as Babylon, which represents a culture of sin and corruption apart from the Lord God’s order.
The most interesting phenomenon to me occurred after the 9-11 attacks on New York’s twin towers and the Pentagon. Islamic Terrorism thrusts the United Sates and all western powers into global conflict, (the Global War on Terror, which I played a small part in) and it has not slowed or stopped since, despite thousands of live lost, wars and rumors of wars, despite many attempts by the powers that be wishing to accommodate such fanatical people’s.
These Muslim (Persian) people have been allowed to migrate (for a large part) unchecked by western authorities, who were once charged with protecting their populations. As a result a slaughter is occurring to any “old school” western ideals and cultures (Christian informed values) , for a perverse progressive objective in the blending of the world together as one. This blending together, is the feet of Iron and Clay prophesied in the book of Daniel. In Daniel chapter 10 – verse 13-14 it is explained to Daniel in significant spiritual detail, what shall befall thy people in the latter days! I must interject at this point that this is not just physical Israel, but indeed is spiritual Israel, the ones grafted into the vine because of Christ.
The spiritual significance is that the Kings of Persia, are demonically driven forces who are allowed to battle the Lord God, and his Angels; most notably the Chief Angle Michael, who has been given authority next to the Lord God. These Demonic beings (the kings of Persia) – the Muslim world, are allowed to dominate, desolate and destroy all traces of the Christian informed culture, and their people.
This is blatantly obvious to anyone who has eyes to see, it is much more pressing than just a theological study of eschatology and the apocalyptic passages! It really amazes me just how passive and weak many of these scriptures are presented by Bible academics, who have no power nor light to see or digest an all-encompassing and consuming problem of this present age. No rather it is presented in the “safe space” of being merely academic, and therefore open to conjecture and interpretation by those who are puffed up within their own understanding of the scriptures!
I believe these Persians are exactly what they are described as being in the latter days, and will nearly destroy white western cultures, except for the fact that the man of sin (the Devil) will come first in playing God, who will be worshipped by the world as such. 1 Thessalonians 5-3 “and the world will cry peace and safety”. The wicked man of sin will perform many signs and wonders, and basically demand to be worshipped as God.
Then, Christ will return in the clouds and destroy him with the breath of his mouth and the brightness of His coming. Hence Babylon, with all its outwardly expressed sin in the world will be destroyed, and the thousand year reign of Christ and his Bride will begin. At this point, the judgment day will hold off till after the thousand year reign of Christ, after the very last rebellion of Satan and his people, who are judged not to be in the book of life, and cast into the lake of fire for eternity.
