Discussion for Daniel 11

    Daniel was told to seal it up. John was told to unseal it. Revelation was written to Bondservants at the END. REV 1:1;9; 1 Pet 4:7
    The old covenant was conditional n had curses that had to be enforced: sword, famine, woes, plagues, sorrows, tears, beasts, DEATH, n it did not annul or supercede the eternal covenant, the promised SEED, the Messiah. Gal 3:17. ALL things have been made new.

    The error of ascribing moving the word "vile" from verse 20 to verse 21 began with the printing of the Coverdale Bible in 1535 A.D.
  • Edward Palamar
    Originally the word "vile", found in verse 21 both here and in most Bibles, was in verse 20 it was a modifier to the middle of the three kings of the north, verses 19-21. Only the Wycliffe and the Douay-Rheims versions retain this accurate description. I witnessed the rape incest of the king of verse 20 upon the wife of the king of verse 19 while in her womb, being the king of verse 21.

    The ships of chittim know what's being said in this chapter and who, what, when, where, why, and what's going on in these verses of the abomination of desolation spoken of. They will make him grieve, won't you, and you will make your stand.
  • A disciple
    One of the hardest to understand portions of Scripture! There are some parts that seem to ring familiar, with respect to current events and people in the world, and to those things which show the purposes in God's working His strange works among men, to bring about the end. I don't know if it serves us well to try to guess about "who" these persons might be; as the Lord will show us in due time.
  • Word
    only one vile one that's Satan. This book is an overlay of the Revelation. Bible student know. It ain't hard if you know the scriptures. Anyway the vile one is coming and people have been taught that Satan comes with a loaded gun and a mean army. Satan comes disguised as a messiah, acts like God, says he is and does supernatural tricks, looks just like the Lamb but it's the dragon. All deception.
