The prophet Samuel spoke God’s words to handsome Saul (1 Samuel 9: 2), that Saul as king had to defeat the Amalekites (1 Samuel 15: 1-11) who had so opposed Israel after their flight from Egypt. Saul, in contrary to Samuel’s words, left King Agag and the cattle alive. God told Samuel to anoint a new king in a family. The father quickly called his sons together. In the concerned family, 7 sons were brought to Samuel, but Samuel could not find the right one. Are these all the sons, he asked their father Jesse?
Except the youngest, who is not there. He is tending the sheep. That youngster was considered too light by his father, to be anointed as king. Then go and get him right away.
The young man was brought in and immediately anointed with oil (1 Samuel 16:13). This was the one who later defended God’s people, when he defeated the giant Goliath with a stone. After Saul, David became king. The forefather in the line of the Son of God, our king Jesus.
Because God looks at someone’s heart (1 Samuel 16: 7). That also applies to every Christian.

It did not stop with the visions and prophecies that Daniel received in the preceding articles. Daniel was a man cherished by God by his firm faith (Dan.10: 11, 19). YHWH had full attention to him. That will also be the case for any steadfast Christian. 

Summary part 4:
The 1st  fulfillment of the 70 weeks prophecy came, from the coming of the Messiah in +/- 29 AD. + 7 years = +/- 36 AD (3.5 years after Jesus’ death) with the end of reprieve of grace for the Jews.
The 2nd fulfillment of the 70 weeks will be at the end of the two witnesses’ prophecy (after 42 months or 3.5 years) with the end of reprieve of grace for the unbelieving fellow men, where after God’s Kingdom will begin (Rev. 11: 15).

In the first regnal year of Darius the Mede as viceroy of Babylon, King Cyrus the Great of Persia issued the decree to let rebuild the temple with a number of Jews. (2 Chron. 36: 22-23) (Ezra 1: 1).

Why is so much attention given to the Antichrist in the Bible?
Because this person becomes by far the greatest attacker of God’s people. It is this person, a Satanist, who as king will cause the great tribulation for God’s people.

Summary part 3:
The jealousy and contempt of the elite for faithful worshipers in Babylon.
Faithful Christians are no part of this world with its unreasonable and callous elite.
The 4 world powers that will come since the last king Zedekiah of Judah, in the line of David.
The 7 world powers that will come since the call of Abraham from Ur, the USA as 7th.
