Daniel 9:24-27 reveals the future of the nation of Israel in amazing detail. It also mentions an evil world ruler that will rise at the end of the age called “the prince who is to come.”
Who is this prince? Most agree he is the Antichrist. While the spirit of the antichrist is always with us (1 John 4:2-3), prior to the return of Jesus Christ, a personification of the devil himself will arise with hate spewing, anti-Semitism like the world has never seen. At first, this prince is a friend to Israel, and then he turns on them.
Daniel says,“And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator” (Daniel 9:27).
