of the north and the little horn of Daniel—a Syrian

also Dan. 8:23-25; Dan.
Dan. 11:11-16, Dan.
11:21-24; c/p. 1 Maccabees 1:29). This begins
The Antichrist Covenant week of years. God's prophetic clock is turned on, as it has
been turned off since the resurrection of Jesus and day of Pentecost. The last 7 years of the
dispensation of grace has begun (Eph. 3:2).

distinctions between Daniel’s
70th week of years and
the Antichrist Covenant week of years, please review Prophecy of the
Seventy Weeks, and the accompanying notes on Daniel 9:24-27.]

Ammon—modern Jordan—escape control of the Antichrist (Dan. 11:41)], while the Antichrist
reigns (Rev. 12:6, Rev. 12:14;
Matt. 24:16-20). This is the time of Jacob’s trouble(Jer. 30:7; Matt. 24:21).
·While crossing the Jordan
river valley in their escape to Jordan, Satan causes a great earthquake and
gale in the Sea of Galilee or the Dead Sea (or both) to cause a great flash
flood like a tidal wave to come down the Jordan River valley in a desperate
attempt to drown the remnant of Israel fleeing into the wilderness. God opens
up the great fault under the Jordan River to swallow up the flood and save the
of Israel (Rev. 12:15-18; c/p. Num. 16:321). [Satan brought a similar earthquake and gale on
the Sea of Galilee during the ministry of Jesus in an attempt to kill Himand His disciples; see Matt. 8:24, where the Greek word, seismos

Thes. 4:17) to act as the natural seed to repopulate the nation
Israel in the millennium (Isa.
4:1). They are
seen in heaven with Jesus as the first fruits of the restored
millennial kingdom of Israel (Rev. 14:1-4).

Euphrates are loosed and prepared for an hour, day, month

earth; they command an army of 200 million demonic horsemen; at least one
billion more people die(Rev. 9:13-19).
·The two witnesses[Enoch and Elijah] are killed; their
bodies lie unburied in the streets of Jerusalem; after 3 ˝ days they are resurrected
and ascend into heaven while the world watches on television and the
Internet (Rev. 11:3; Rev. 11:7-12). This event concludes Daniel's
70th week; thejudgment is set.
