Daniel 11:36-37, “And the king (supposed antichrist) shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god (Allah) and shall speak marvelous (unusual) things against the God (Jehovah) of gods (idol made by men) and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined (by Jesus Christ) shall be done. Neither shall he (antichrist) regard the God (Jehovah) of his fathers (Abraham, Ishmael and Esau) nor the desire of women (requests nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.”
Here’s another reckless teaching concerning this future antichrist spoken is found in Dan.11:36-37, it is written, “Neither shall he (future antichrist) regard ---- the desire of women.”
Desire, is not speaking of sexual desires, as many claim, neither is it speaking of him being homosexual. Now, he may be that, I don’t know, but that’s not what the Hebrew “desire” points to.
The Hebrew word “desire” means to regard the things of women: That which is desired by women: Read the context of Daniel 11:38. It is speaking of idols. Jewish woman venerated the Queen of heaven,
Jer.7:18, “The (Jewish) children gather wood, and the (Jewish) fathers kindle the fire, and the (Jewish) women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven (deities of their own making), and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.”
Jer.19:13, “And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings of Judah, shall be defiled, --- because of all the houses have burned incense unto all the host of heaven.”
Jer.44:15-17, “All the men which knew that their wives have burned incense unto other gods, and all the women that stood by, a great multitude.” You can read the rest yourselves.
The “Queen of Heaven:” This title refers to Ishtar, an Assyrian and Babylonian goddess also called Ashtoreth and Astarte by others, the wife of the false god Baal. Jewish women were motivated to worship her because she was a fertility goddess, and having children was greatly desired among Jewish women, so, they worshipped the “queen of heaven.”
I like a few others teach that Nebuchadnezzar’s image in Dan.2 whose feet and toes are of both potter’s clay and miry clay represent the Catholic church and Islam. The Catholic’s were born of pagan Rome, and Islam born of the Catholic church and from the Jewish O.T. which they confiscated, and added the Koran.
Also, the Catholic church venerates the “Lady of Fatima” formally known as Our Lady of the Holy Rosary of Fatima, Catholic’s title for the Virgin Mary. Islam honors her as do the Catholic’s as the most important woman in their religions.
This vision of Mary is based on the apparition reported in 1917 by three shepherd children (Catholic’s) in Fatima Portugal. Coincidently this very Town in Portugal was named after Fatima, Muhammad’s favored daughter. Sounds like the same spirit at work in both cases.
Mary is a very strong connection between these two religions, as also is Jesus, who is called Isa in Arabic. This false representative of Jesus “Isa” is called a prophet, but 2ed to Mohomet. Isa (false Jesus) and the Antichrist in Islam play an important role in Islam’s end time prophesy. Islam claims Isa will usher in Islam as the world religion; but before him will appear Islam’s Mahdi. This false Christ’s appearance will usher in the judgment.
Two thighs of bronze = Northern and Southern empire of Greece. Move down to the,
Two legs of iron, the Roman empire = in the West, Rome, in the East, Constantinople. The Catholic church took over both capitals from pagan Rome. Catholic’s continue today at the Vatican in Italy, and Islam continues as the toes of iron and miry clay at Istanbul (old Constantinople), and both capitals were built on 7 hills.
So, we have three major links in both religions, Mary; and Jesus (Islam’s Isa), and both born of ancient Rome.
