The Antichrist Judged by the Ancient of Days
Daniel 7:22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
Earlier in chapter in verse 9, the Ancient of Days is referenced. It was here we referred to this figure as God the Father. In verse 10, the expression is used " the judgment was set." This 22 verse refers to such judgment when the expression is used "judgment was given to the saints." A better understanding of this phrase is "judgment was passed in favor of the saints." God determines the outcome. Judgment is determined sovereignly. Man's court of opinion will not be consulted. When the antichrist is able to implement his full plan, God will prohibit the antichrist from accomplishing his full ambition and will bring him to utter ruin. Other passages of scripture outline this taking place at the end of the tribulation. When his kingdom is brought to an end, God's Kingdom will be ushered in, and His people, the saints, will rule with Him on earth for 1000 years. Judgment against the antichrist is not for man to implement. It is a judgment for God and God alone.
