    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.

    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.

    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.

    It was actually unsealed in 1844. This is when a man figured out the 70 wk prophecy. It was sweet as honey in the mouth because it was.. really cool. It was bitter in the belly because he misread the very end and thought Christ was coming back the same year. There was about a quarter million folks who gave everything they had away standing in a big field. It's called The Great Disappointment

    Bryan this book is for the end times. Written about, told about, sealed up for the end. The history might be but it is speaking to prepare us for what is coming.
