Discussion for Daniel 8

  • Word
    Kiowa its spiritual death and Satan as you will read going forward in Daniel comes as peacefully
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Marcelo, that's spot-on! Very accurate. The eighth is of the seven, all of them. Goes into perdition. Who is the ONLY one already sentenced to perdition? This king ran em all.....the devil. The four horns were Alexander's four generals, like the four wings on the leopard. When you look at the four beasts, the statue and the ram/ goat, you get enough info to open Daniel....almost. Use Dan on Rev.
  • Kiowa
    I understand why Daniel almost fainted after seeing this vision. It makes me sick to my stomach just reading what is soon to be. So many will perish thinking they are doing the right thing. The deception of peace is such a great move in the grand game of chess that God and satan have been playng for so long and seems to be winding down with the generation of the fig tree.

    About the chapter 8:8 when the fourth great kingdom which was Persian empire was knocked by Alexander the Great, "the goat waxed very great" means the fifth kingdom so he Alex was strong, but when its great horn was broken he fell, for this reason there came four notable ones, that represented the sixth great kingdom Roman empire with its four tetrarchs tetra means four - arch head leaders . About the verse 9, "Out of them came a little horn", means out of the Romans the seventh empire which has a extreme prosperity in all the directions of the Earth. In the book of revelation we can find the end of the the seventh empire through the great tribulations, even the eighth Empire that probably will be finishing the last millennium, which could be the seventh millennium since the creation of man.
  • J Sanders for verse 24
    Much of the world will think he is doing good , but in reality he is killing innocent people. " He will kill wonderfully ". Agree with bob k above.
  • Aaron
    I agree with most of Bob K's intreprtation of Daniel chapter 8. The one thing in my opinion I differ from Bob is I don't believe the first beast is coming from the Holy Roman Empire. He's coming out of the pit of hell resurrected by Satan. Remember the people wonder at the beast because he was wounded and came back to life? My opinion the anti-christ is Nimrod. Right out of the pit of hell restored head back on!
