WHAT TIME IT IS

DANIEL 7 Pg 2

 

Revised Rome and revived Greece

 

7:8      [1] I considered the [ten] horns [revised Rome], and,

            [2] behold, there came up among them

[a.] another little horn [revived Greece],

[a.] before whom there were three of the first horns

[11.] plucked up by the roots: [three of the revised Roman nations are taken over by the Antichrist (by flattery), forming the Revived Grecian Empire; the remaining of the 10 horns give their power and authority to the Antichrist (Dan. 7:24; Rev. 17:16-17); see How To Quickly Locate the Antichrist in Scripture] and, behold,

[b.] in this horn [were]

[11.] eyes like the eyes of [the] man, and

[12.] a mouth speaking great things [he corrupts by flatteries (Dan. 11:21; Dan. 11:32, 34); and shall enter peaceably (Dan. 11:21)].

 

The judgment is set and the books are open

 

7:9 I beheld till [the Antichrist shall reign until]

[1] the thrones [thrones of the Antichrist and the 10 kings] were cast down (Rev. 17:14; Rev. 19:19-21), and

[2] the Ancient of days did sit [the Father],

[a.] whose garment [was] white as snow, and

[b.] the hair of his head like the pure wool:

[c.] his throne [was like] the fiery flame, [and]

[d.] his wheels [as] burning fire.

7:10 [e.] A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him:

[f.] thousand thousands ministered unto him [angels], and

[g.] ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him [the Church and Old Testament saints]:

[3] the judgment was set, and

[4] the books were opened (Dan. 8:26).

 

The Antichrist is destroyed

 

7:11 I beheld then [after the judgment was set and the books were opened]

[1] because of the voice of the great words

[a.] which the horn spake [vs. 8]:

[2] I beheld [even[ till the beast was slain [the Antichrist is killed because of his words], and

[a.] his body destroyed, and

[11.] given to the burning flame (Rev. 19:20).

 

Each kingdom rules only during its appointed time

 

7:12 As concerning the rest of the beasts,

[1] they had their dominion taken away [the earlier kingdoms ruled only in their time and season]:

[2] yet their lives were prolonged for

[a.] a season and

[b.] time

 

. The Second Advent of Jesus

 

7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold,

[1] [one] like the Son of man [Jesus]

[a.] came with the clouds of heaven, and

[b.] came to the Ancient of days [the Father (Rev. 5:6)], and

[11.] they brought him near before him.

7:14 And [c.] there was given him

[11.] dominion, and

[12.] glory, and a

[13.] kingdom [the millennial kingdom of heaven on the earth (Rev. 20:4-6)], that all

[aa.] people,

[bb.] nations, and

[cc.] languages,

[111.] should serve him:

[d.] his dominion [is] an everlasting dominion,

[11.] which shall not pass away, and

[e.] his kingdom [that] which shall not be destroyed.
