“At the time of the end” a goat with a great horn stomps a militant ram, breaking its horns—“kings of Media & Persia” (Iraq & Iran) said Gabriel, Daniel 8.
“The biblical year begins in the spring with the new moon crescent (chodesh, Exod 12:2) after the equinox. A week later, Trump bombs Syria. Two weeks later, he bombs ISIS—it’s like he is following the script in Daniel 8, says Dr. Richard Ruhling, author on Bible prophecy. https://islamusinprophecy.wordpress.com
Animals fight with horns, and here’s a militant ram that Daniel saw “push west and north and south,” but it angers a goat that flies from the west to break both horns and stomp the ram. Playing trumpet in high school band, the conductor called them ‘horns.’ In Bible times, they were made from animal horns. The link between militancy of the goat’s ‘great horn’ in Daniel 8 and the militancy of Trump(et) is significant.
“Paul Harvey would love this because “the rest of the story” from Genesis 22 is huge. Abraham was tested on his willingness to sacrifice his son Isaac. But Muslims say the son was Ishmael. Ruhling says, “It begs the question, Which is the true holy book?”
Daniel 8 is proving the son spared was Isaac; his son was Israel and before Iran can push Israel into the sea, they will be sacrificed as the ram in Genesis 22. Daniel 8 shows the ram’s horns are broken by the goat’s great horn (Trump).
Islam celebrates the sacrifice that they think spared Ishmael in Al-Adha. It is the 2nd of two holidays Islam celebrates worldwide each year, but if they understood this information, they should see the Bible as the true holy book and convert to Christianity, says Ruhling
Jews might contest the reference to Christianity because there’s nothing in Daniel 8 about it, but God says He declares the end from the beginning and in the book of beginnings, Genesis 22:8, Abraham said “God will provide Himself a lamb.” The Jews, like the Muslims, fail to see the Lamb announced by the prophet John that “takes away the sin of the world,” John 1:19-21. The lamb was the focus of Jewish ceremonies for 1400 years, but when He died as Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22 show, and on Passover, the appointed time, they missed it, blindly trusting their leaders as millions do today without questioning, Ruhling opines.
Historians say this vision was fulfilled when Alexander the Great conquered the Medes and Persians in the Battle of Arbela in 331 BC, but they overlooked verse 17--Gabriel said the vision is at the time of the end. This is half fulfilled again since the horn of Iraq was broken. Also interesting is that while Trump is linked by the great horn in Genesis 22, the ram was caught by its horns in a Bush--God has humor, verse 13.
Revelation begins with a reference to Christ as the Alpha & Omega, the First and the Last, Rev 1:11. This supports the *Rule of 1st Use that says where a word or phrase is first found, it often has a context or meaning to consider for the end-times.
Revelation 8 shows an earthquake initiating seven trumpets, but the Greek word for earthquake is seismos, and its first use is Matthew 8:24 where it was a storm or tempest on the Sea of Galilee. The similarity between tempest and Trump(et) is of interest because of the tempest or storm-like action in the Middle East.
This seismos prepares the way for the first trumpet when “all green grass was burnt up,” Rev 8:7. If this were literal, we would be finished because the grains are grasses. But the Bible offers a spiritual application in James 1:9-11 (King James) where rich men are like grass. The point is that an economic collapse is coming, probably this fall at the Feast of Trumpets when we would expect those trumpets to be initiated.
