Daniel 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
This antichrist will cause sin to flourish. He will be about getting more people doing things that go against God.
But the part that most caught my attention was that he will magnify himself in his heart. He will think highly of himself. He will have an overblown opinion of himself. Then I thought of how often I can do that. I thought of how much I seem to like myself and push myself. Do you have a problem with this too?
He seems to make peace or act like all is ok and then out of the blue he hurts people. He uses peace to destroy. I am your friend, relax, then I will hurt you. Wow, that is a harsh way to live.
Then he will stand against Jesus, the true Prince of princes. He will not win. He will be destroyed. Jesus will win that battle!
