Daniel Chapter 8 The Prophet Daniel’s Third Vision.
Daniel In A Vision “By the River”Daniel Chapter 8:1-2 Daniel lives in Babylon • 1 “In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar a vision appeared to me--to me, Daniel--after the one that appeared to me the first time.“ (Daniel 7) • 2 “I saw in the vision, and it so happened while I was looking, that I was in Shushan, the citadel, which is in the province of Elam; and I saw in the vision that I was by the River Ulai.“ Bodily inthe city Sushan In his visionat the river!
A Ram before the riverDaniel Chapter 8:3,4 • 3 “Then I lifted my eyes and saw, and there, standing beside the river, was a ram which had two horns, and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last.” (Dan 8:3)
A Ram Pushing Three DirectionsDaniel Chapter 8:4 • 4 “I saw the ram pushing west -ward, north -ward, and south- ward, so that no animal could withstand him; • “nor was there any that could deliver from his hand, but he did according to his will and became great.“(Dan 8:3-4) Medo Persia conquered Babylon, Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Afghanistan, Western India
A Furious Male Goat from the WestDaniel Chapter 8:5 • 5 “And as I was considering, suddenly a male goat came from the west, across the surface of the whole earth, without touching the ground; and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. “ • This time Greece is a goat, & Alexander the Great “the notable horn” who with great speed and fury conquered MedoPersia in less than 10 years!
A Furious Male Goat from the WestDaniel Chapter 8:6 • 6 “Then he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing beside the river, and ran at him with furious power.“
The Goat Beats the Ram!Daniel Chapter 8:7 • 7 “And I saw him confronting the ram; he was moved with rage against him, attacked the ram, and broke his two horns.“ • “There was no power in the ram to withstand him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled him; and there was no one that could deliver the ram from his hand.“
Goat’s Horn grows until it breaks & grows 4 horns instead!Daniel Chapter 8:8. • 8 “Therefore the male goat grew very great; … • … but when he became strong, the large horn was broken, … • and in place of it four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven.“
Four Horns: West, North, East, & South! • Alexander‘s four generals divided his empire into four smaller empires: West-Greece, North Pergamum, East-Seleucid kingdom, South-Egyptian Ptolemaic Kingdom. These four divisions are important, because out of one of these fourkingdoms soon theAntichrist will RISE! WestGreece North - Pergamum East Seleucid Kingdom SouthPtolemaicKingdom
Out of One of Them Grows a Little Horn! This picture iscorrect, except the little horn is supposed togrow out of ONE of the four little subhorns! • 9 “And out of ONE of them came a little horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land. (Israel) The 4 sub-horns refer to either nations, areas or Wind directions! As it says: “four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven.“ W – N – S - E.
Which One of Them, is The Question! Toward the end the AC comes from the North to invade, subdue & take over Israel. ? ? • The little horn is the Antichrist who may first rise from the southern horn Egypt & then move on to the northern horn Russia to grow big from there! • Either way He will grow South & East-ward from Russia & finally toward the Glorious Land! — Israel! ? ? Because according to the prophet Ezekiel chapt. 38,39, the AC will come from Russia! “Gog from Magog!”
Little Horn Grows Great Unto Heaven & the Prince of the HostDaniel 8:10,11,12 • 10 ”And it grew up to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and some of the stars to the ground, and trampled them.” • 11 ”He even exalted himself as high as the Prince of the host; The AC will fight the “host of heaven” meaning God’s Endtime children! He will persecute and even kill some of them. He will also exalt himself above JESUS! —The Prince of Heaven’s Army!
The Little Horn Takes Away The Daily (Jewish) SacrificesDaniel 8:10,11,12 Meanwhile the Jews will have built their new Temple on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem and started their ancient religion of animal sacrifices for sins. • 11 .. and by him the daily sacrifices were taken away, and the place of His sanctuary was cast down.” • 12 ”Because of transgression, an army was given over to the horn to oppose the daily sacrifices; and he cast truth down to the ground. He did all this and prospered.” The AC will then outlaw all religions, except his own, & stop the new Jewish temple sacrifices!
Angels Talk to Each Other & Daniel. • 13 “Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said to that certain one who was speaking, • "How long will the vision be, concerning the daily sacrifices and the transgression of desolation, the giving of both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled underfoot?“ • 14 “And he said to me, "For two thousand three hundred days; then the sanctuary shall be cleansed." The time period from the start of the daily Jewish sacrifice through the desecration of religions & Temple, at the breaking of the Peace Covenant, until the “host”- the people of God-will be trampled underfoot, will last 2.300 days.
Temple ready for sacrifices 2.300 days before Jesus’ Return The time when the construction of the Jewish Temple will be completed to enable the sacrificing to start, will be 2.300 days before the Sanctuary will be finally cleansed, at the coming of Christ! Thus one can safely say that ‘the last 7 years’ 2520 days – 2300 leave just 220 days for constructing the Temple after the signingof the seven year Holy Covenant! The Templeis already prepared in Jerusalem! • 14 “And he said to me, "For two thousand three hundred days; then the sanctuary shall be cleansed." • 15 “Then it happened, when I, Daniel, had seen the vision & was seeking the meaning, that suddenly there stood before me one having the appearance of a man.“
Jesus tells Gabriel to make Daniel understandDaniel 8:13,14 • 16 ”And I heard a man's voice between the banks of the Ulai, who called, and said, "Gabriel, make this man understand the vision." • 17 ”So he came near where I stood, and when he came I was afraid and fell on my face; but he said to me, "Understand, son of man, that the vision refers to the time of the end." • 18 ”Now, as he was speaking with me, I was in a deep sleep with my face to the ground; but he touched me, and stood me upright.” It is Jesus who is standing on the water and orders Gabriel to explain it all to Daniel.
The vision is for the End Time!The Ram is Medo Persia Daniel 8:18,19,20 Here you see that WE don’t interpret the Bible. The angel does! And very clearly; The ram is Medo Persia! • 19 ”And he said, "Look, I am making known to you what shall happen in the latter time of the indignation; for at the appointed time the end shall be.” • 20 ”The ram which you saw, having the two horns--they are the kings of Media and Persia.”
The Goat is Greece! Alexander the Broken Horn!Daniel 8:21,22 • 21 ”And the male goat is the kingdomof Greece. The large horn that is between its eyes is the first king.” • 22 ”As for the broken horn and the four that stood up in its place, four kingdoms shall arise out of that nation, but not with its power.” The angel says that the Goat is Greece and the horns--as we learn from History --are Alexander’s & his 4 generals’ lesser kingdoms.Very simple!
The Rise of the Antichrist! Fierce Face!Daniel 8:23,24 In the last days of Alexander’s generals kingdoms, when the World’s people have become the worst ever, then will the Antichrist, who is surely alive today, rise! • 23 "And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the trans-gressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise, having fierce features, Who understands sinister schemes. He will have a fierce face & understand witchcraft & Satanic schemes or plans. He’ll be totally possessed by Satan, when he breaks the Peace Covenant & sitting in the Jewish Temple will state: “I AM GOD!”
The Antichrist will be All Powerful! Daniel 8:23,24 Under Satan’s power he will very much grow in influence! He will destroy many of the mighty holy Children of God! • 24 “His power shall be mighty! But not by his own power. • He shall destroy fearfully (awfully) and shall prosper and thrive; • He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people.“
Jesus will personally destroy the AC! • 25"Through his cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; • And he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. • He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; But he shall be broken without human means.” The AC will be super -smart & deceptive & very lifted up in pride! He’ll destroy many people Because the Antichrist will try to fight Jesus, so Jesus will personally destroy him at the Battle of Armageddon
26 "And the vision of the evenings and mornings which was told is true; Therefore seal up the vision, for it refers to many days in the future." 27 ”And I, Daniel, fainted and was sick for days; afterward I arose and went about the king's business. I was astonished by the vision, but no one understood it.” The Vision Concerns the Far Future! Gabriel tells Daniel to “seal up the vision” for “many days in the future!” Getting visions is hard on your body. Daniel “fainted & was sick for days!” No one under-stood the vision then! But now many of us do! We hope you do too!
