The millions of readers who devoured the Left Behind series will find in this book the Old Testament prophetic basis for the fictional stories told by Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye. In his study of Daniel's visions, Grant Jeffrey establishes the accuracy of the prophecies by showing that Daniel knew the exact dates of Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem and his crucifixion a full six hundred years before the fact. This book is organized in two sections. Part 1 describes the uniqueness of Daniel as a prophet. He was a Hebrew slave living in exile; he rose to a position of incredible prominence in ancient Babylon, and he had visions of precise details of end-times events that God revealed to no other Old Testament prophet. In Part 2, the author explains the meaning of Daniel's visions for those living today. Using a unique interpretive grid, Grant Jeffrey has determined the dates of future end-times events based on Daniel's prophecies. These events include the rise of the world dictator known as the Antichrist; the Tribulation period (comprising seven years of persecution); and the timing of the Battle of Armageddon (in which the Antichrist will be defeated). Beyond this fascinating timeline, Daniel also provided details on the origin, background, and characteristics of the coming Antichrist; described the Antichrist's political strategy and future rise to power; and revealed a schedule of major events during the Antichrist's reign.
Daniel prophesied the rise of global government in your future
A number of prophets had a glimpse of the future, but God gave only one prophet a precise calendar of the end-times events that will affect the current generation.
Writing more than 2,500 years ago, Daniel described a series of cataclysmic events and the signs that will precede the end times. According to prophecy expert Grant R. Jeffrey, many of the signs that Daniel pointed to are visible in our world today.
Daniel’s vision reveals startling details about the identity of the coming Antichrist, his political career, his death, and his Satanic resurrection. After completing an exhaustive study of Daniel’s prophecies, Dr. Jeffrey presents a detailed description of the Antichrist’s rise as world dictator, the mark of the beast, and the political maneuvering that will set the stage for global government. In light of the Hebrew calendar and the cycle of Jewish festivals, Dr. Jeffrey uncovered precise dates for major apocalyptic events, including a timeline for the Antichrist’s rise to power, the major events of the Tribulation, and the timing of the Battle of Armageddon.
God allowed Daniel to see the world we will soon live in as we approach the time for the return of the Messiah. Now learn exactly what Daniel knew.
