Messianic Metal meets Maccabean Monolog

Take THIS,  Antiochus Epiphanes…

Gods of Fire                 

And forces shall be mustered by him,
and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress;

then they shall take away the daily sacrifices,
and place there the abomination of desolation.
Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery;
but the people who know their God shall be strong,
and carry out great exploits.

And those of the people who understand shall instruct many;
yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame,
by captivity and plundering.
Now when they fall, they shall be aided with a little help;
but many shall join with them by intrigue.
And some of those of understanding shall fall,
to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end;
because it is still for the appointed time.

Then the king shall do according to his own will:
he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god,
shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods,

and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished;
for what has been determined shall be done.

Daniel 11:31-36 [NKJV]
