25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws; and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time [3 1/2 years = 1260 years of time the true Church was driven into the wilderness by the Roman sect]. 2
25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many. He shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand [Antiochus died suddenly of disease, (not a man's hand ), in 164 BC].
36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper until the indignation is accomplished. Because what has been determined, shall be done.
|2 Thessalonians 2:3-4,8 |
3 Let no man deceive you by any means; for that day will not come, until a falling away has come first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition; [The man of sin, the son of perdition, is Satan's spirit within you.]
4 Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God [your heart], proclaiming himself to be God.1
8 And then that wicked one [Satan's spirit within you] will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the spirit of his mouth, and destroy with the brightness of his coming.
