Daniel 7:25 reads, "And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time." KJV
This section of the Bible deals with the end times when the Antichrist is revealed and is in either great or complete control of the World.
As time advances and the world takes on the pre-order of the end times, Bible prophesy becomes easier to understand.
When we look at the things Daniel states the Antichrist will do, they are:
1. "Speak great words against the most High."
2. "Wear out the saints of the most High."
3. "Think to change times and laws."
Daniel tells us that he will be able to do these things because it "shall be given into his hand...."
Before current days (at least in America) the concept of a national or world leader speaking great words against God on a political and public platform was unheard of. However, in recent years we have heard our (America's) President degrade Christians and the Bible in many ways. It is but a single short step to speaking against God. Our President is in bed with Islam, and Islam is certainly vocal in their aggression against Christians and the God of the Bible.
The idea of "changing times" is beyond me at this time. I do not know what that means.
"Changing laws" is easy to understand now. One of the names for the Antichrist is the "lawless one" or "man of lawlessness." 2 Thessalonians 2:3-8. Obama has given us good insight into how that works. By repeated Executive Order and repeated acts in violation of our Constitution, he breaks our laws and enacts his own laws.
"Wearing out the saints" is easy to understand, now. As moral, patriotic, Bible-believing Americans we are bombarded with an unending attack of the Obama administrations immoral, anti-American and anti-Christian actions. We are, for the most part, powerless to fight these constant attacks. When abused people have no way to stop the abuse, it wears them out.
It is easy to understand how the demonic powers of the anti-Christ will be allowed. In America, Obama constantly attacks America, our Constitution and Americans -- and our elected representatives (Congress) does nothing to stop him or even slow him down. When national and world leaders will not stand against the evils of demonic manifestation through a national or world leader, there is little hope for curbing that persons evil.
So, are we in the end times? I do not know. What I do know is that Obama has given us a taste of what the end of the world (as we know it), is going to be like. By the time he is out office on November 8, 2016 (assuming he does not repeal the 22nd Amendment by Executive Order or have Congress do it for him), I suspect more biblical revelation about the end times will become clear as a result of obamanation.
