Dispensationalism is my game: there are elements of preterism and futurism that I find true. Divide the ages by the covenants. From Adam's fall to Abraham (before Isaac) is the Age of Gentiles. From Abraham (at Isaac's birth) to the 70th Week is the Hebrew Age. Then the Millennium is the Age of Christ as King of kings.
Here is the thing: Jesus was killed 7 years early, so the Church is a paranthetical covenant to bridge the gap between the 69th and 70th week of Daniel.
If you want the truth, find a Scholar/pastor who teaches from the Hebrew OT and Greek NT. I can recommend one if you want. Most scholars are full of fermented crap. The truth is in the Hebrew and Greek text.
You have 371 days to figure it out. Start digging. Use 1 John 1:9 and ask God for the truth.

Michael is an angel though, so then each nation has a good angel/s and a bad angel/s over it. Bit like a soccer match where every player is shadowed by the opposing one?
BTW, cant find that in Deuteronomy any words you can remember in the passage? But there is this Dan_12:1 "At that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people. And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book."

in order for the anti-christ to trick, if it were possible, even the elect of god, he would have to visibly be something other than a human being. why you might ask? easy: people are so very suspicious of other races, that he would automatically have millions of people combing over everything he said and did, and who would suspect him of ill intent, right off the bat. if he were other worldly, people would suspect him as well, so he couldn't look like a grey or reptilian. so what is he exactly? what entity could pull something like that off and not automatically have people be suspicious of him based on his race/physical appearance?
