Dan 7:13-14 “I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him. Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed.
This looks like rapture when our Lord Jesus Christ (Son of man) comes in the clouds to deliver His saints from the deceptions and wrath of the Antichrist (Satan).
Dan 7:21-22 I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.
Testing and refining of Christians
Rev 13:5-7 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.
God will allow the Antichrist to persecute, torture and martyr His saints for three and a half years. This will really be a time of testing, cleansing and refining of Christians so that they will be worthy to be taken up at rapture. These victorious saints will serve the King of kings and the Lord of lords as His lords and kings.
Rev 7:13-15 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them.
Antichrist killed at Rapture
Dan 11:45 And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas on (and) the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him.
The Antichrist will rebuild the temple of God on the Temple Mount (glorious holy mountain) between the Mediterranean Sea and the Dead Sea. He will be killed (no one can help him) by the breath of our Lord and the brightness of His coming at rapture.
2Thess 2:8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.
End of the Antichrist's Power
Dan 7:25-26 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time. ‘But the court shall be seated, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and destroy it forever.'
