But what do you really know about the Bible? I mean I have this computer and I know how to use it a little bit, but to be honest with you there is so much I don’t know about this computer. I bought it about 3 years ago, I have had several computers since they came out in the early 80’s as a matter of fact I bought and tried to sell the first computer “The Texas Instruments TI-99/4A it is a home computer, released June 1981 in the United States at a price of $525″ Of course I didn’t do so good at selling them because nobody thought they would be much use to them, as a matter of fact I would tell people “One day everyone in the U.S.A. would have one in there house, only to be told I was crazy, this would never catch on plus they cost to much! Well guess what? The prediction came true 100%. lol
Now to get back to the statement what does the Bible say about the LAST DAYS?
The facts and nothing but the facts! It is a fact that the last days started in the book Daniel.
DATE AND AUTHORSHIP The book of Daniel, according to its own testimony, is the record of the life and prophetic revelations given to Daniel, a captive Jew carried off to Babylon after the first conquest of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar in 605 B.C. The record of events extends to the third year of Cyrus, 536 B.C., and, accordingly, covers a span of about seventy years. Daniel himself may well have lived on to about 530 B.C., and the book of Daniel was probably completed in the last decade of his life. Although Daniel did not speak of himself in the first person until chapter 7, there is little question that the book presents Daniel as its author. This is assumed in the latter portion of the book and mentioned especially in 12: 4.
The use of the first person with the name Daniel is found repeatedly in the last half of the book (7: 2, 15, 28; 8: 1, 15, 27; 9: 2, 22; 10: 2, 7, 11, 12; 12: 5). Most expositors, whether liberal or conservative, consider the book a unit, so Daniel’s claim to authorship is recognized even by those who reject it. 1 Except for the attack of the pagan Porphyry (third century A.D.), no question was raised concerning the traditional sixth-century B.C. date, the authorship of Daniel the prophet, or the genuineness of the book, until the rise of higher criticism in the seventeenth century, more than two thousand years after the book was written.
Important confirmation of the historicity of Daniel himself is found in three passages in Ezekiel (14: 14, 20; 28: 3), written after Daniel had assumed an important post in the king’s court at Babylon. 2 Convincing also to conservative scholars is the reference to “the prophet Daniel” by Christ in the Olivet Discourse (Matt. 24: 15). Higher critics normally question the traditional authorship and dates of books in both the Old and New Testaments, and therefore disallow the testimony of the book of Daniel itself, dispute the mention of Daniel by Ezekiel, and discount the support by Christ in the New Testament. But conservative scholars have given almost universal recognition to the book of Daniel as an authentic sixth-century B.C. composition of Daniel, the captive

Revelation 19:11-21 11″And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.12His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.13And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.14And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.15And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.16And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.17And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;18That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.19And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.20And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.21And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh”
