Daniel 8; Parceling Up of America, and Rise of The AntiChirst

The similarities with Daniel 8 are uncanny to the situation with ISIS in the Middle East, and America's promise of intervention, though with "no boots on the ground!"

While I was observing, behold, a male goat was coming from the west over the surface of the whole earth without touching the ground; and the [i]goathad a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came up to the ram that had the two horns, which I had seen standing in front of the [j]canal, and rushed at him in his mighty wrath. I saw him come beside the ram, and he was enraged at him; and he struck the ram and shattered his two horns, and the ram had no strength to withstand him. So he hurled him to the ground and trampled on him, and there was none to rescue the ram from his [k]power.Then the male goat magnified himself exceedingly. But as soon as he was mighty, the large horn was broken; and in its place there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four winds of heaven.

Over and over on the news, they talk about the aspect President Obama promised, "no boots on the ground!"  It's like the LORD is saying, "The Goat that moved over the earth without touching the ground!"

What is interesting, is that, though the scriptures promise the Goat defeats this Ram, standing at the river, after it "magnifies itself," rejoicing in its victory, it is broken!  Don't misunderstand me, I'm not saying America is the Goat.  I think the Goat is the UN.  The "conspicuous horn" is America.

I believe this is God's judgment on our land, where attacks from all the forces rumored to be around US and in US, will play out their revenge and aggression against this once great land.

And so what happens when America is taken down, and divided into four parts?  The next passage tells us:

Out of one of them came forth a rather small horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the [l]Beautiful Land.10 It grew up to the host of heaven and caused some of the host and some of the stars to fall to the earth, and it trampled them down. 

The small horn, also mentioned in Daniel 7, known as the Antichrist, comes to power!  Here we have a time sequence.  He rises to power after ISIS has been defeated by the U.N. being led by the American military.

11 It even magnifieditself [m]to be equal with the [n]Commander of the host; and it removed theregular sacrifice from Him, and the place of His sanctuary was thrown down.12 And on account of transgression the host will be given over to the hornalong with the regular sacrifice; and it will fling truth to the ground and perform its will and prosper. 13 Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to that particular one who was speaking, “How long will the vision about the regular sacrifice apply, [o]while the transgression causes horror, so as to allow both the holy place and the host [p]to betrampled?” 14 He said to me, “For 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the holy place will be [q]properly restored.”
Daniel 9 tells us that the Antichrist, the "small horn" rises to power after confirming a peace treaty with Israel for Seven years, or the Seventieth Shabua predicted in Daniel 9:24-27.  

All these things are quickly coming to pass.  Where do you stand in your relationship to Yeshua Messiah?  Is he Master and Savior of your life?  Or do you only pay Him lip service?  If you have never called on Him, or never truly recognized His Lordship over your life, ask Him to forgive you your sins against Him, and ask Him to come into your life and reign over you as He promises He will to those who turn from their sinful lives.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His [a]only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. 18 He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the [b]only begotten Son of God.   

Romans 10:9 [a]that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; 10 for with the heart a person believes, [b]resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, [c]resulting in salvation.
