In January of 2010, I read an original version (1872) of Uriah Smith’s Daniel and the Revelation. As I read his commentary on Daniel 11:45 I immediately saw the relevance of what he wrote to what was happening in our world today. Smith was making application of this verse to the geopolitical conditions of his day. I simply translated that to our day and I saw that something very sobering was about to take place.
What you will discover when you understand the interpretation of the prophecy of Daniel 11:45 is that the situation in our world today is shaping up to bring about the fulfillment of this verse and its fulfillment will impact everyone on planet earth.
You will not be able to understand the interpretation of this verse until you understand the preceding 44 verses. And the beautiful thing about this chapter is that anyone who has access to historical records can decipher the prophecies in this chapter sufficiently to be able to know the meaning of verse 45. The fact is, chapter 11 is simply a collection of news headlines from a specific region of this world that were given to the prophet Daniel that span the time from the kingdom of Medo-Persia down to our very day. Why would God give us such a detailed list of news headlines to
watch for? He wants us to know when we are getting close to the time described in the very next verse, the "time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation" (Daniel 12:1).
My name is John Witcombe and I and my wife Sharon have worked in pastoral ministry since 1994. We have one married daughter who has made us proud grandparents. Understanding Daniel 11:45 has impacted my life significantly and I want you to understand tomorrow’s headlines before they take place so that you too can make the same preparation that I am making as I describe in chapter 7 of Jerusalem Caliphate and the Third Jihad.
