Trump’s Appeal to Arab Nations to Deal with Radical Militants Foretold in Daniel 8?
“Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith,” said Trump.
Historians say Daniel 8 was fulfilled when Alexander the Great conquered the Medes and Persians (v 20) but they overlooked verse 17 where Gabriel said, “the vision is at the time of the end.” The Medes and Persians are now Iraq and Iran, with Trump saying Iran gives “safe harbor, financial backing, and the social standing needed for recruitment [of terrorists]” and calling for “all nations of conscience [to] work together to isolate Iran, deny it funding for terrorism.” http://www.wnd.com/2017/05/
2500 years ago, Daniel’s vision was a militant ram pushing west (to Europe and US), north into Russia and south into Africa. But it angered a goat that flew from the west, stomped the ram and broke both horns.
This conquest by a GOAT (Global Organization Against Terrorism?) was with a great horn. Since horns were used as Trumpets in Bible times, the imagery is significant. Trump has shown his willingness for the GOAT role in Syria.
Daniel 8 deserves focus because the above should convince honest people worldwide that the God of the Bible has foretold the future, even “the time of the end” when even the best aren’t sure what will happen .
Fully understood, “God declares the end from the beginning.” Isaiah 46:10. In the book of beginnings, In Genesis 22, God shows the end of militant Islam when Isaac was saved from sacrifice by a ram caught by its horns in a Bush. Islam teaches that Ishmael was spared by sacrificing the ram, and they celebrate that sacrifice in Al-Adha, the 2nd of two holidays Islam celebrates worldwide each year. Which book is true?
