The King Who Exalts Himself
36 “The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. 37 He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. 38 Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his ancestors he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. 39 He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price.
The language in these passages from Daniel 11:36-39 lead me to believe the king described here will be an atheist who doesn’t believe in any gods and will say the God of the Bible doesn’t exist and that humans can create a powerful god through artificial intelligence and through it become like gods themselves. The god of fortresses, a god unknown and the foreign god all sound like gods made out of artificial intelligence that he will use to create powerful weapons and other security systems to enhance his power. There will be no stopping this atheist king until the time of wrath is complete. This is why I say serious believers need to band together and form communal societies off the grid.
