Daniel 11 by Jerry Vines

Daniel 11
The eleventh chapter of Daniel is a very lengthy,
detailed, and complicated chapter. There are matters there if

Daniel wrote in this chapter for the most part has already been
fulfilled in history. When God revealed these things to
Daniel, all of it was out there in the future. The entire

which were fulfilled just exactly as God said they would. Now
it's because of prophesy in the book of Daniel that the Bible-
haters and the critics have attacked the book very severely.
If you don't believe that God has the power to predict the
