Four world kingdoms shall arise


7:15 I Daniel

[1] was grieved in my spirit

[a.] in the midst of [my] body, and

[2] the visions of my head troubled me.

7:16 [3] I came near unto one of them

[a.] that stood by [an angel], and

[4] [I] asked him the truth of all this. So

[a.] he told me, and

[b.] made me know the interpretation of the things.


7:17 These great beasts, which are four,

[1] [are] four kings [kingdoms having kings],

[a.] [which] shall arise out of the earth (Rev. 13:11; c/p. Dan. 7:2-3).


The saints are to rule


7:18 But the saints of the most High [Jews born again after the Rapture of the Church (vs. 21); they are called holy (Dan. 8:24; Rev. 20:6)] shall

[1] take the kingdom [the millennial kingdom of heaven on the earth], and

[2] possess the kingdom

[a.] for ever, even for ever and ever [these saints take and possess the everlasting kingdom of the Son of man: on the earth (Dan. 7:14), while the Church is given the New Jerusalem in heaven]


Revised Rome


7:19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast [Rome],

[1] which was diverse from all the others,

[a.] exceeding dreadful,

[2] whose teeth [were of] iron, and

[3] his nails [of] brass;

[a.] [which] devoured,

[b.] brake in pieces, and

[c.] stamped the residue with his feet;

7:20 [4] And of the ten horns [kings] that [were]

[a.] in his head,

[5] and [of] the other [the little horn] which came up, and

[a.] before whom three fell; even [of]

[b.] that horn

[11.] that had eyes, and

[12.] [that had] a mouth that spake very great things,

[13.] whose look [was] more stout than his fellows.


Saints are overcome by the Antichristuntil the Father intervenes


7:21 I beheld, and the same horn [the little horn]

[1] made war with the saints [the saints of the most high (Dan 7:18; Dan. 7:25)], and

[2] prevailed against them [these are born again Christians inside the territories or jurisdiction of the old Grecian Empire, which is the dominion of the Antichrist (Rev. 12:17, Rev. 13:7);

7:22 Until

[1] the Ancient of days came [the Father comes to the a earth at the Second Advent], and

[2] judgment was given

[a.] to the saints of the most High (Rev. 20:4); and

[3] the time came that the saints

[a.] possessed the kingdom (Dan 7:18, Rev. 20:6).
