A look at the ten kings
Lights, Camera, Action!…submitted by Esteban.
27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
*If he “confirmed the Covenant with many” it means that he is already in control, and that the Covenant has already been made, and the owner of the Covenant (the beast) is the last one that must give his signature to start the process of one world religion or whatever they signed the Covenant for. In the year 2017, the largest religions in the world signed an agreement to internationalize Jerusalem with the Pope.
But the process has not started yet. I believe that they need the final signature from the highest authority to confirm the start of their project.
And if you read carefully and with prayer these verses, you will notice that the beast is like a god to these kings and they give their power to him. If you turn the verses around, look what happens.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour “together” with the beast.
In the original text it says “together” which shows that they already have power and that he (the beast) also is in some kind of authoritarian position in the world. However…I have an inclination (from the Lord) that, they, (the beast and the 10 kings), do not have full control of the world until that final hour. Then they get full control of the people, (not any more with fear and propaganda but “then” people will be trapped for real.) It could be with a big crash in the economy that forces all people to use their one-world electronic money system together with the mark, because “then” they will have full control physically on people. “Then” only Jesus will be able to save the world.
Note: The conclusion above seems to agree with what David Berg said 1986 [see below:]
- Now, we usually think of the Antichrist’s rule beginning with the Covenant, but that isn’t necessarily so! The only thing we know exactly for sure, because the Bible says so, is that the last seven years begins with the signing of the Covenant. It doesn’t say that the World dictator, or the Antichrist, will only be in power for those last 7 years. In other words, it’s possible he will be in power for more than 7 years.
- WE KNOW THAT THE LAST SEVEN YEARS HE CERTAINLY WILL BE IN POWER, but it’s a little ridiculous to suppose that he would have enough power to get the World to sign the seven-year Covenant unless he were already in some kind of power & prominent in some way, & with enough power & influence to persuade them to sign that Covenant! He doesn’t just suddenly pop out of the woodwork, someone that nobody ever heard of & say, “Here’s the solution to your war & the economic problems!” He’s not just some nobody, unheard of, a little diplomat in the U.N. who suddenly stands up & offers the World the solution on a silver platter just like that, without already certainly being known & having some influence & some power!–Otherwise they wouldn’t even listen to him!
- SO HE’S GOT TO GET INTO SOME POSITION OF POWER BEFORE THAT, & from reading over Daniel 11 again, I’m now convinced that he is even having wars before he finally persuades them to sign the Covenant. So he’s quite prominent.
- SO IF HE DOESN’T SHOW UP THIS YEAR, MAYBE HE’S GOING TO SHOW UP NEXT YEAR, WHO KNOWS? But the thing is, that it’s ingrained in our heads that since the Antichrist is the one who gets them to sign the Covenant, we usually associate only that last seven years with the Antichrist reign. But he’s certainly going to have to have some kind of power & some kind of influence before that in order to get the World to sign the Covenant at all! (Taken from study of Daniel 11:21 in the letter Antichrist wars before the Covenant)
End Time Insights
“It doesn’t say that the World dictator, or the Antichrist will only be in power for those last 7 years. In other words, it’s possible he will be in power for more than 7 years.”
There should be little doubt that we have entered the days of the final world empire spoken of by Daniel, in Revelations, and by the Endtime prophet, David.
