Discussion for Daniel 7

    I think I need to witness a lot more before Jesus comes back!
  • William Lambert
    Because Ancient of days is capitalized, one might assume this to be referring to God. The saints of the most High must also be referring to the saints of God for the very same reason that High is also capitalized.

    It seems to me, that the "Roman" system has never really been completely taken away, but rather splintered and dispersed throughout the world, and remains today as it were "mingled with the clay." As for those other "beasts;" it says that "their lives shall be preserved," but the dominion will be given to the Saints. The Antichrist and its followers shall be ashes under our feet; (Malachi 4:1-3).
  • Calvin
    Daniel's vision here in chapter 7(particularly the 4th Beast, 10 horns and little horn, the thrones, books being opened,etc ) are a precursor to Revelation 20.
    Unlike most commonly held views, this 4th beast is not Rome, but a resurrected Rome-like Endtime government during the Great Tribulation period. This government is ruled by the indwelt satan-Antichrist who receives power from 10 kingdom-nations
  • Sakana
    4th beast takes the 1st 3 into itself and becomes a one-world power. This is why the political beast in Rev 13:1-3 has the characteristics of the 3: Lion, Bear, Leopard. It's the same beast, but in Daniel we get more insight into how it comes together. 1st 3 kings/kingdoms (horns) are plucked up (subdued) by roots by little horn. "Babylon" of end times is spiritual world system Jerusalem centered.
  • 7th Day
    the first beast can not be England just because they use the lion as their coat of arms. If you look at the many ruins of Babylon you will see a lot of lions also. Also this was the first kingdom in Daniel 2. Also the Bible is revealing the line of Gods people, kingdoms that held them captive and oppressed them through history and into the future. Babylon to the Vatican Gods people are opressed.
