Identifying Fourth Beast (BD43)

             'Book of Daniel'

Dan 8:8-12 Therefore the male goat grew very great; but when he became strong, the large horn was broken, and in place of it four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven. And out of one of them came a little horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land. And it grew up to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and some of the stars to the ground, and trampled them. He even exalted himself as high as the Prince of the host; and by him the daily [sacrifices] were taken away, and the place of His sanctuary was cast down. Because of transgression, an army was given over to the horn to oppose the daily [sacrifices;] and he cast truth down to the ground. He did all this and prospered.
   Out of the four Grecian kingdoms, one of them will be extremely powerful who will exalt himself as God. He will remove the daily [sacrifices] and with the support of many nations, he will conquer Israel (Glorious Land). He will be a great liar (no truth) and will deceive many.

Last Days' King of the North
Dan 11:29, 31 "At the appointed time he (king of the North) shall return and go toward the south; but it shall not be like the former or the latter.... And forces shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily [sacrifices,] and place there the abomination of desolation...He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all."
1. This Endtime king of the North will conquer Jerusalem (sanctuary fortress)
2. He will remove the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mount, which calls Muslims to daily prayers [sacrifices]
3. In its place, He will rebuild the Temple of God or 'Abomination of Desolation'
4. He will exalt himself to be God.

Dan 11:40-41a "At the time of the end the king of the South shall attack him; and the king of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter the countries, overwhelm them, and pass through. He shall also enter the Glorious Land, and many countries shall be overthrown.."
   Just like the fourth Beast, this king of the North will conquer its neighbouring Arab nations and Israel (Glorious Land) like a whirlwind.

Dan 11:44 "But news from the east and the north shall trouble him; therefore he shall go out with great fury to destroy and annihilate many."
   He will also conquer the rest of the world and annihilate many nations.

Dan 11:45 "And he shall plant the tents of his palace between the seas and the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and no one will help him."
   He will rebuild the temple of God (tabernacle) on the Temple Mount (glorious holy mountain) between the Mediterranean and Dead seas. Just like the fourth Beast, no one can save him from being killed (end).

2 Thess 2:9-10 The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
   This Endtime king of the North will be the fourth Beast, the Northern Alliance led by the Antichrist, who is the agent or incarnate of Satan himself.
   It will be interesting to see how the Antichrist display his satanic powers and lying wonders in the coming World War 3, the last war before rapture.
