What I am about to READ
In a dream, the Lord revealed to Daniel the future of the world up until Judgment Day.
MARK and LEARN
Chapter 7 begins the second part of Daniel, which consists of prophecy. It contains the same theme as the first six chapters: God is in control of the kingdoms of the world. In the first six chapters, this truth was taught through the lives of Daniel and his friends. In the second six chapters, this truth is taught through prophecies revealed to Daniel. If you have time, take a look at Revelation 13. The table below may help as you read through Daniel 7:
|The Symbols:||What/Who they represent:||What will happen:|
|The lion||Babylon||Wings torn off|
|The bear||Medes and Persians|
|The leopard||Greek Empire||Will have 4 heads|
|Terrifying beast||Rome||Will be different from the other beasts|
|Ten horns||The kingdoms that come from Rome|
|The little horn||The Antichrist||Will uproot three horns, eyes of a man, and speak boastfully|
|Ancient of Days||God the Father||The court will be seated|
|The Son of Man||God the Son||Will come in the clouds of heaven and have everlasting dominion.|
|Saints of the Most High||Believers||Will possess the kingdom|
In this chapter we’re reminded that the gates of hell will never prevail against the Church. Whether Satan uses the kingdoms of the world or the Antichrist himself, the Church will endure, and in the end it will possess the kingdom.
