This summer I'm sharing my personal notes I gleaned from reading Sandie Freed's books. These are from Conquering the Antichrist Spirit. These are just my notes so please, get the book where the real strategies and resources are.
We can relate to Daniel. The Babylonian system, which represents an antichrist influence, tries to persuade and tempt us to accept and participate in a God-free system. It pressures us to cast off all restraint and serve an antichrist system.
We have to come to a place of shifting, where we enter courts of heaven and heaven opens and mysteries are revealed.
In Daniel’s time Babylonia is symbolic of world system. Today like Daniel every day we face the lion’s den in a Babylonian system. God will be as faithful to us as He was Daniel.
Satan really believes he can alter our times of deliverance and breakthrough and we believe him too. Let God guide into tearing down false belief systems concerning ability to achieve destiny.
Neb intendeded for his people to remain in a circle just as satan attacks our generations. By changing our times and laws he can change future of our generations. The Lord may lead us to a wilderness but it is the enemy that wants to keep you there so you never cycle out.
The Three Jews refused to bow down to Neb were in a wilderness but refused to cycle in it. When we refuse to bow down to his evil plans he sends his evil messengers to find us. Satan has his demonic servants seek us out to pressure us to bow down to his tactics. Like them, we must not bow down to any God but Jehovah.
1 Timothy 4:1, 2 Corinthians 1:24. They key to standing firm in our faith against the antichrist structure is to put on the full armor of God. We take a firm stand only if we are standing on our covenant with God. We are only empowered to stand when we bow to the covenant promises of God.
7 means perfection
First beast was like a lion, the fierceness of the Babylonian Empire and the rise and fall of Neg. We can relate because the Babylonian system still attempts to be lifted higher than the purposes of God. Satan is still saying “I will” exalt myself above God and we’re tempted to say the same above God’s will and plans.
The Babylonian culture uses legalism to control believers.
Second beast was like a bear and represented the Medo-Persian empire. They were bloodthirsty like the cruelty of satan. We can only have victory through the blood of Christ. An antichrist structure said we don’t need the blood of Christ. To deny the power of the cross is to deny Christ.
Third beast was like a leopard and represented Greek empire and thinking. The leopard is like satan with fearlessness against the body of Christ and swiftness to steal the seed as the Sower sows the Word. Self government, having a plan B that doesn’t need God, worshiping bodies, being judge and jury for our bodies.
Fourth beast represents violent action against us as believers. If we have a promise but are afraid to cross over because of fear, the antichrist system is at work.
Ten horns were ten leaders or govt’s. They were yanked from position to give room for another little horn that spoke against God. This horn made war with the saints and prevailed against them.
Casting down thrones==demonic thrones with false voices, leaders and demonically inspired leaders. The Ancient of Days is the fire that can rightly judge His enemy. When the Ancient of Days shows up in the court of heaven the little horn, the Antichrist has to shut up.
