The Eastern Question relating to Daniel 11 and how Islam fits into biblical prophecy, is one of the most controversial prophecies in Adventism… at least it is if you hold my view (currently the minority view).
I have seen people yelled at, ridiculed and even special meetings held to ensure my view was “clarified away”. So, needless to say, this isn’t a view that will make you friends. I do believe however, it holds merit, and seems to be increasingly fitting current events in the middle east. It was also the view of many of the prominent pioneers in EGWs time (this isn’t a guarantee of truth, it is simply interesting).
The two options are basically this:
Option 1: The literal reading of Daniel 11, or
Option 2: the literal reading of Daniel 11:1-40 and spiritual reading of Daniel 11:40-45. This speaker argues for the option 1, and to me it seems the more reasonable view, especially in the light of current events.
