The Abomination of Desolation

Daniel 11 presents an Incredibly Detailed Prophecy that has more Relevance to the Modern Era than historians realize. Were it not for Christ’s Direct Mention, WE wouldn’t have reason to see the full scope of its Connection with the End Time! The question is, What Do We Look For in Expectation of this Outcome?

This passage is extraordinary in its extreme accuracy. In fact, it’s so accurate that historians have insisted it had to have been written in retrospect long after these events took place.

(Referring to Seleucus Nicantor of Syria, the king of the north, formerly an officer under Ptolemy I.) 6: And in the end of years they shall join them-selves together; for the king’s daughter of the south (Berenice, daughter of Ptolemy II, (of Egypt) was given in marriage to Antiochus II, (of Syria) and was murdered.) shall come to the king of the north (to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times.
