CORRECTLY UNDERSTANDING DANIEL'S VISION IN CHAPTER EIGHT........
The first thing to understand about Daniel's vision is that Daniel is told that the vision was for , "at the time of THE END". Daniel 8:17
The next thing Daniel was told is , "Behold, I will make thee know what shall be IN THE 'LAST END' OF THE INDIGNATION for at the time appointed THE END SHALL BE." Daniel 8:19
The "indignation" spoken of is God's great tribulation judgment upon the whole world AFTER THE RAPTURE. Therefore, Daniel's vision is for "THE LAST END" of God's forty-two month long great tribulation judgment upon the whole world just BEFORE the Second Coming of the Lord to earth accompanied by His previously raptured Church.
Next in Daniel 8:23-25 Daniel is shown the nature and activities of the Satan powered anti-Christ during his forty-two month authority on earth before the Second Coming of the Lord to end it.
Lastly Daniel is told that , "he ( the anti-Christ ) shall also stand up against the Prince of princes ( Jesus Christ ) , but he (the anti-Christ ) shall be broken without hand." at the Battle of Armageddon .
How does Jesus break the anti-Christ "without hand" at the Battle of Armageddon ? Read on.
2 Thessalonians 2:8
"...whom the Lord shall consume with the Spirit of His mouth."
SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT:
Daniel's vision, as recorded in Daniel chapter eight , is AFTER THE RAPTURE. It is about Satan and his anti-Christ reign of authority on earth during the forty-two month period called "the indignation ", or great tribulation, which is ended at the Battle of Armageddon by Jesus at His Second Coming.
According to Your Word, come Lord Jesus !
