The Antichrist breaks the Covenant

Arms shall stand on his (AC) part The AC out-laws religions of faith

Inspite of this highly touted "Holy Covenant" which should have established and garantueed peace between the superpowers and all the different warring religious and ethnic factions in Israel and the Middle East, there are still irreconcilable conflicts going on between them. Because of this perpetual squabbling, the Antichrist gets finally so fed up, probably with both the U.S and the Israelis; who obviously act the most disagreeable, as he invades their temple! He also outlaws all religions of faith in the one true God! And so "in the midst of the week"--halfway the Last Seven Years--he breaks "the Covenant." He abrogates this international treaty by armed military intervention. The Scripture says that "an host (army) was given him because of transgression" Daniel 8:12 Perhaps a local U.N force is "given him because of transgression" of the terms of the Covenant by one of the parties involved. It says "arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength and shall take away the daily sacrifice."
Now whether this is the long foretold Russian
invasion of Israel by "Gog" the AC already, may not be clear although very likely, but he certainly causes military action in the Middle East again, this time even inside Jerusalem and specifically inside the temple, as is written that "it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months", the last 3½ years! Rev 11:2 The AC will turn against the very Jews who installed him as their Messiah, and go his own way! He seems to take over Jerusalem and he takes their religion away by causing the Jewish "daily sacrifice" of animals to stop! He "pollutes" their Temple by erecting the Abomination of Desolation in it. He desecrates and sits in their temple, stating that he himself "is God!"
But he is not just fed up with Judaism, but stands up and speaks out against all religions of faith in the one true God, and specifically against Jesus Christ Himself!
Daniel 8:11 He then forbids and outlaws all all the socalled "fundamentalist" religions, except of course his own new One World Religion of the worship of himself and Satan! Other Covenant co-signators who also act "against the Covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries, but the people who know their God shall be strong and do exploits!" Daniel 11:32 That is God's promise for all His saved children who "know the Lord", that they will have supernatural strength. They will perform amazing and extraordinary feats, in order to survive and to save others as well!

"Yea, he magnified himself even to the prince of the host [Jesus] and by him the daily sacrifice was taken away, and the place of his sanctuary was cast down. And an host was given him against the daily sacrifice by reason of transgression, and it cast down the truth to the ground, and it practiced and prospered" Daniel 8:11,12
"In the midst of the week (after 3½ years) he (the AC) shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate" Dan.9:27
"And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that makes desolate."
Daniel 11:31
"But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months. Rev 11:2
