Prophecy Friday: Daniel 7Vision of Four Beast- The Ancient of Day & The Rise of The NWO See Write Up
Good morning. Great is His faithfulness.
Greek Word of the day- Μεσσίας Messías, mes-see'-as; of Hebrew origin (H4899); the Messias (i.e. Mashiach), or Christ:—Messias
He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ).
The Study started with an opening from my Orthodox Study- "APOCALYPTIC LITERATURE IN THE BIBLE" (see my teaching video for the opening).
Daniel 7- Prophecy Friday
St. Aphrahat- THE GREAT SEA (The Mediterranean Sea, v. 2) is symbolic of the world- THE FOUR BEAST in v. 3 are the four kingdoms mentioned.
THE LIONESS WITH EAGLE's WINGS (v. 4)- is the Babylonian Empire
THE BEAR ROSE UP ON ONE SIDE v. 5- The kingdom of Media and Persia arose in the east. St. Hippolytus sees THE THREE RIBS as the Medes, the Assyrians, and also the Babylonians. They are also identified with Lydia, Babylon and also Egypt, all were conquered and reduced to a single realm by the Persians under Cyrus and his son Cambyses. The Fathers (Apostles) agree the LEOPARD is Alexander the Great, the FOUR WINGS AND FOUR HEADS (v. 6) are his four generals. THE FOURTH BEAST v. 7 is seen to be the Roman Empire - and some of the Fathers (Apostles) say THE TEN HORNS are a prophecy of ten nations that will rise up in the last days.
(Other sources used was Daniel 2:25-49; Daniel 8:5-14, Revelation 4:6-7 and Ezekiel 1:5, and v. 21).
Daniel's visions are similar to St. John's in Revelation, which includes the THRONES (see Revelation 4:2-6; Revelation 20:12, and Revelation 5:11).
Daniel 7: vv. 8, 24, 25
THE LITTLE HORN is seen to be the Antichrist, an ELEVENTH KING- who will appear suddenly in the midst of the ten horns, seizing power of everything and will also use magic and sorcery to fool everyone including many of our elect. (See the Matthew 20:6-8 verse, the Antichrist when revealed will indicate the eleventh hour, time will be short so our time for forgiveness and repentance should be now, but still have time don't wait to long).
Matthew 20:6-8: 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing [a]idle, and said to them, ‘Why have you been standing here idle all day?’ 7 They said to him, ‘Because no one hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You also go into the vineyard, [b]and whatever is right you will receive.’
8 “So when evening had come, the owner of the vineyard said to his steward, ‘Call the laborers and give them their wages, beginning with the last to the first.’
Here Daniel's vision is of THE ANCIENT OF DAYS is talking about the Second Coming of Christ, THE SON OF MAN, IN HIS GLORY.
A TIME, TIMES, AND HALF A TIME is making a reference to the "short time" (three and a half years) of tribulation that will come upon the "FAITHFUL" which is just prior to the end of the age (other sources, Daniel 12:7 and Revelation 12:7-16- see my teaching video). Daniel 7 closes out with the Rise of a One World Government in the ancient of days. We see a push for it now all worldwide with currency trying to go completely digital, and laws are being changed all over the world. What's good is now bad and what's bad is now good. Are we in the beginnings of this push towards a one world Government system???
"Our response to the prophetic teachings in the Scriptures is not meant to fear, or even try to second guess God's timetable, but instead we are to practice repentance and watchfulness against sin and to engage in teaching and spreading the gospel."
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.” ’
