Daniel 11

1 Also I in the first year of Darius the Mede, even I, stood to confirm and to strengthen him.

2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.

3 And a mighty king shall stand up, that shall rule with great dominion, and do according to his will.

4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

5 And the king of the south shall be strong, and one of his princes; and he shall be strong above him, and have dominion; his dominion shall be a great dominion.

6 And in the end of years they shall join themselves together; for the king’s daughter of the south shall come to the king of the north to make an agreement: but she shall not retain the power of the arm; neither shall he stand, nor his arm: but she shall be given up, and they that brought her, and he that begat her, and he that strengthened her in these times.

7 But out of a branch of her roots shall one stand up in his estate, which shall come with an army, and shall enter into the fortress of the king of the north, and shall deal against them, and shall prevail:

8 And shall also carry captives into Egypt their gods, with their princes, and with their precious vessels of silver and of gold; and he shall continue more years than the king of the north.

9 So the king of the south shall come into his kingdom, and shall return into his own land.

10 But his sons shall be stirred up, and shall assemble a multitude of great forces: and one shall certainly come, and overflow, and pass through: then shall he return, and be stirred up, even to his fortress.

11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

12 And when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it.

13 For the king of the north shall return, and shall set forth a multitude greater than the former, and shall certainly come after certain years with a great army and with much riches.

14 And in those times there shall many stand up against the king of the south: also the robbers of thy people shall exalt themselves to establish the vision; but they shall fall.

15 So the king of the north shall come, and cast up a mount, and take the most fenced cities: and the arms of the south shall not withstand, neither his chosen people, neither shall there be any strength to withstand.

16 But he that cometh against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him: and he shall stand in the glorious land, which by his hand shall be consumed.

17 He shall also set his face to enter with the strength of his whole kingdom, and upright ones with him; thus shall he do: and he shall give him the daughter of women, corrupting her: but she shall not stand on his side, neither be for him.

18 After this shall he turn his face unto the isles, and shall take many: but a prince for his own behalf shall cause the reproach offered by him to cease; without his own reproach he shall cause it to turn upon him.

19 Then he shall turn his face toward the fort of his own land: but he shall stumble and fall, and not be found.

20 Then shall stand up in his estate a raiser of taxes in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he shall be destroyed, neither in anger, nor in battle.

21 And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honour of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries.

22 And with the arms of a flood shall they be overflown from before him, and shall be broken; yea, also the prince of the covenant.

23 And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.

24 He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places of the province; and he shall do that which his fathers have not done, nor his fathers’ fathers; he shall scatter among them the prey, and spoil, and riches: yea, and he shall forecast his devices against the strong holds, even for a time.

25 And he shall stir up his power and his courage against the king of the south with a great army; and the king of the south shall be stirred up to battle with a very great and mighty army; but he shall not stand: for they shall forecast devices against him.

26 Yea, they that feed of the portion of his meat shall destroy him, and his army shall overflow: and many shall fall down slain.

27 And both of these kings’ hearts shall be to do mischief, and they shall speak lies at one table; but it shall not prosper: for yet the end shall be at the time appointed.

28 Then shall he return into his land with great riches; and his heart shall be against the holy covenant; and he shall do exploits, and return to his own land.

29 At the time appointed he shall return, and come toward the south; but it shall not be as the former, or as the latter.

30 For the ships of Chittim shall come against him: therefore he shall be grieved, and return, and have indignation against the holy covenant: so shall he do; he shall even return, and have intelligence with them that forsake the holy covenant.

31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

33 And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.

34 Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries.

35 And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.

36 And the king shall do according to his will; and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: for that that is determined shall be done.

37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god: for he shall magnify himself above all.

38 But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things.

39 Thus shall he do in the most strong holds with a strange god, whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory: and he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain.

40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

18 thoughts on “Daniel Chapter 11

  1. 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

    THE PEOPLE THAT KNOW THEIR GOD

    This whole chapter is about kings lifted up in their pride and doing their on will.
    Right in the middle is a verse that says all this can happen, but there is still a people that do know their God and will not fall for the flatteries of corrupt kings. These people will do great exploits in their day. They shall be strong, because they know their God.

  2. This chapter illustrates power. Their power and might was foretold. Many will rise and fall, only God’s (Jesus) will last; “Hath not the potter power over the clay”. What a mighty God we serve! May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen

  3. The easiest way to make an enemy is to slap them in the face. In vs. 40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

    When we break a covanent. Watch out! In Ecc. 5:5Better is it that thou shouldest not vow, than that thou shouldest vow and not pay. It is foolish to do this. We are to be people of an honest report. Not allowing anything to tarnish your name. Thank God that when we are saved that His blood washes whiter than snow.

  4. KNOW GOD

    32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

    The deceiver will use the disobedience of humanity to deceive by flatteries.

    Flattery – insincere or excessive praise

    Satan uses lies to praise the works of man. We must be careful continually to give GOD all PRAISE. The key to recognizing and avoiding deception is to KNOW GOD.

    To KNOW GOD we will have intimate knowledge of our creator. There is PROMISE that accompanies our relationship with GOD. We shall be STRONG and DO or ACCOMPLISH – FINISH.

    FINISH STRONG by KNOWING GOD

    iRepent
    iPraise
    iPray
    iWork
    iGive
    iReap

  5. Know HIM and you won’t fall for the flattering of a fool.

    32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

    Proverbs 29:5 A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet.
    Proverbs 28:23 He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

    Like the saying says I prefer to be offended to Heaven than flattered to hell. Thankful to have a Pastor that teaches the Truth without fear of offending.

    Psalm 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

  6. 32. And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. Thank you Jesus I can be strong because I know you, I PRAISE YOU JESUS, I LOVE YOU JESUS GLORY TO YOUR NAME!!!!

  7. iLove to eat the Word

    “Get Ready Church to See the Antichrist”

    And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

    32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

    These verses are clearly talking about the antichrist coming onto the world scene with deception and flattery. The antichrist will sign a 7 year peace agreement with the Jews and Muslims and after 3 1/2 years he will step into a newly rebuilt Jewish Temple and say that he is God. The church will be there to witness this.

    The Proof

    2 Thessalonians 2:1-11 KJV (1) Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, (2) That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. (3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; (4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. (5) Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? (6) And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. (7) For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (8) And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: (9) Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, (10) And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. (11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

  8. 31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate.

    32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

    The tickling of ears ? Do we really want someone to preach just to make us feel good? Is there any hope for us if our flesh is not offended at the word of God. I thank God that we are in a church and under a Pastor that will preach what God wants him to preach because sugar coated sermons lead people to hell and they don’t even know it. Help us Lord!

    Proverbs 23:23
    Buy the truth, and sell [it] not; [also] wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.

  9. 32 He will flatter and win over those who have violated the covenant. But the people who know their God will be strong and will resist him. (NLT)

    We must know Him!

  10. MSG – vs 32 “They’ll throw out the daily worship and set up in its place the obscene sacrilege. The king of the north will play up to those who betray the holy covenant, corrupting them even further with his seductive talk, but those who stay courageously loyal to their God will take a strong stand.”

    It’s a sad day when daily worship is cast aside and replaced with insincere show and sacrilege. Those who continue in their daily worship and remain loyal to their relationship with God will stand strong and will not be drawn into deception and pride.

  11. 32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

    The ones that know God have know that they have access to all the authority, power and dominion that God just gives us. Pretty much the solution to every problem or every battle is to Know God.

  12. What is truth?

    2 And now will I shew thee the truth. Behold, there shall stand up yet three kings in Persia; and the fourth shall be far richer than they all: and by his strength through his riches he shall stir up all against the realm of Grecia.

    That is the question of the ages. We should be thankful that God has shown us the simplicities of salvation that adhere to every biblical principle in the Bible. I was once a fooled soul following the doctrine of accept Jesus as your personal savior and nothing you can ever do will cause you to go to Hell. Thank you Jesus for showing me the truth, and allowing me to be hungry enough to accept it.

    There are at least a billion people in this world that are like how I was. We really don’t have time to sit around and play church.

  13. Treasure

    4 And when he shall stand up, his kingdom shall be broken, and shall be divided toward the four winds of heaven; and not to his posterity, nor according to his dominion which he ruled: for his kingdom shall be plucked up, even for others beside those.

    We see a theme in these prophecies about how life comes and goes and in the end we leave all this world behind when we die. The good, the bad, everything in between… I am reminded of the phrase “this too shall pass.” We like to apply it to just the unpleasant as a comfort but it applies to all the temporal of life.

    Ephesians 5:15-21
    15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, 16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God

    Each day we get to choose to live life for the temporal or in light of the eternal. How we live reflects where our treasure is. If our only hope, our only treasure, is in this world, then it will show. But if we look for a Heavenly City… When we walk in the Spirit, we can push away the temporal to invest in the eternal. It may be more obvious as praying with someone or inviting them to church, or it may be more simple as sharing a smile and some encouragement with a fellow believer.

    Isaiah 9:7
    Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

    The reality of God’s Kingdom should be alive in us, and part of that reality is that His Kingdom shall be ever expanding. It does not stay within us but pours over all around. The more His Kingdom expands, the more the temporal is pushed back to yield to the eternal. Walking in the dominion of the Kingdom means being on the offense, not the defense. We aren’t running from the devil but walking in victory, taking territory.

    This reality of living doesn’t just show a change in our circumstances but in us. A shifting in our definition of “treasure” makes room for a shift in redefining us and the expansion of the Kingdom in and through us. It all starts with where our treasure is. Each day we get the choice of how we define it, and we get to reap the fruit of sowing into the temporal or eternal.

    Matthew 6:18-21
    19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also

  14. 11 And the king of the south shall be moved with choler, and shall come forth and fight with him, even with the king of the north: and he shall set forth a great multitude; but the multitude shall be given into his hand.

    12 And when he hath taken away the multitude, his heart shall be lifted up; and he shall cast down many ten thousands: but he shall not be strengthened by it.

    Though thousand may fall on one side and ten of thousands by thy right hand, none shall come near me says the Lord.

    Fear not for any turmoil that may happen around you for God is always with you and has hand upon you to protect you even until the end of days.

  15. So much treachery, revenge and desire of power & riches among these world leaders-destroying nations, peoples & even the innocent bystanders. Thank God there is still the church through it all. We have a place in him that is our refuge. Verse 32… but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. Praise God for light in this dark time of the antichrist.

  16. Who Are These Kings?

    The “mighty king” refers to Alexander the Great, the Greek king who conquered Persia. After his death, his kingdom was divided into four parts, each one ruled by one of his generals. The “king of the South” (Da 11:5) refers to the Ptolemies of Egypt, while the “king of the North” (Da 11:6) refers to the Seleucids of Syria. Daniel outines in great detail the intrigue in the courts of these two family lines. What he foretells comes true.
