In these verses we’re told about the Antichrist, I’m going to read to you from Daniel 11:36-38, Daniel is also telling about this man over 500 years before John, and their telling about the same man, the same period of time in their prophecies.
36And the king shall do according to his will; ---
Antichrist will be sold on himself, he demands that his will be done, he is self-willed. The very opposite of the True Christ who said,
John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me” .
36b--and he shall exalt himself, and magnify himself above every god, --
He shall magnify himself above all. Paul declared that the Antichrist would enter into the Jewish Temple and declares himself to be God, this will happen about the mid way point of the 7 year tribulation.
II Thess 2:4 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.
And in Revelation 13:8 we are also told: “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
36c --and shall speak marvellous things against the God of gods,--
He will become the enemy. Antichrist will lead a rebellion against God and His Christ.
Ps. 2:2–3 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying, Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us”
36d--and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished: --
The willful king will be successful for a brief time. God will permit these things to come to pass during the last half of Daniel’s Seventieth Week.
36e-- for that that is determined shall be done.
What does “for that that is determined shall be done, mean? It simple means that what so ever God has already declared would come to pass would come exactly as He has already declared that it would, nothing can change or alter His forever settled Word, and so all these terrible things that we’re reading about must occur.
He will come to his end as Christ Himself returns from heaven and casts both the Antichrist and the false prophet into the lake of fire, and they are alive as this happens, their the 1st to go into the lake of fire as for as we can tell.
Rev 19: 20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
There’s much in verse 36 of Daniel 11:
37 Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers,
We believe that the same spirit that indwelt Judas Iscariot will in dwell the Antichrist, that it will be Judas brought back from his own place at a particular time and be used as the Antichrist. Acts 1:25
