Revealed in Daniel are the following

1.    The Book of Daniel contains the prophecy of the seventy weeks of years (Dan. 9:24-27). Daniel's 70th week of years (Dan. 9:24) is divided: 3 ˝ years in the ministry of Jesus on the earth, and 3 ˝ years in the coming "ministry-reign" of the Antichrist. The last 7 years of this ageThe Antichrist Covenant week of years—before the second coming of Jesus [the Messiah], begins with the signing of a 7-year peace covenant between the nation of Israel and the Antichrist (Dan. 9:27): who is the Syrian head of a Middle-Eastern/European confederacy of 10 nations (the Revised Roman Empire).

2.    After 3 ˝ years (at midweek) this covenant is broken (Dan. 9:27).

3.    The executor of this covenant with Israel is a king whose ascendancy to power can be tracked by following the little horn (Dan. 7:8; Dan. 7:20; Dan. 7:24; Dan. 8:9) that came out of this 10-nation confederacy located in the territories formerly ruled by Rome (Dan. 7:7, Dan. 7:20; Dan. 7:24). He uproots 3 of these nations in his rise to power (Dan. 7:8; Dan. 7:20; Dan. 7:24). He is identified as the king of the north (Dan. 11:6-8; Dan. 11:11, 13, 15; Dan. 11:40), and is a Syrian. [This can be easily determined from countless historical records of ancient Greece and Rome concerning who is the king of the north in fulfilled prophecy.] Finally, by studying the history of Antiochus Epiphanes, prophesied in Dan. 11:21-45 and recorded in the historical books of 1st and 2nd Maccabees, a detailed composite drawing is presented of the Antichristthe man of sin, and the beast out of the sea of Revelation 13:1 (see How To Quickly Locate the Antichrist in Scripture).

4.    The king of the north is Syria (Dan. 11:6-8; Dan. 11:40).

5.    The king of the south is Egypt (Dan. 11:5).

6.    Egypt will fall to Syria at the time of the end (Dan. 11:42-43).

7.    At or before midweek, the 10-nation confederacy of revised Rome give their power, authority, and kingdom to the Antichrist (Rev. 17:12-13). They destroy the great religious whore city (Rev. 17:16-17; Rev. 17:18) of the Revised Roman Empire. The Antichrist then rules the eighth and final world kingdom to oppress Israel—the Revived Grecian empire (Rev. 17:11)—for 3 ˝ years until the second coming of Jesus [see notes on Revelation 13 and Revelation 17; see also How To Quickly Locate the Antichrist in Scripture].

8.   It is not until Michael’s is removed as the angelic covering over Israel [see The Hinderer of Lawlessness] that the Antichrist can be revealed to persecute Israel in the last half of The Antichrist Covenant week of years, which is also the last half of Daniel’s 70th week of years (Dan. 9:24-27; 2 Thes. 2:3).
