text size A A A

Daniel 7:1-8

In The First Year of Belshazzar King of Babylon, Daniel had a Dream and Visions of his head while on his bed. Then he (Daniel) wrote down the Dream, telling the main facts. Daniel spoke, saying, “I (Daniel) saw in My Vision by night, and behold, The Four Winds of Heaven were stirring up The Great Sea. And Four Great Beasts came up from the Sea, each different from the other. The First was like a Lion, and had Eagle’s Wings. I (Daniel) watched till its Wings were plucked off; and it was Lifted Up from the Earth and made to Stand on Two Feet like a Man, and a Man’s Heart was given to it (The Lion). “And suddenly Another Beast, a Second, like a Bear. It was Raised Up on One Side, and had Three Ribs in its Mouth between its Teeth. And they (The Four Winds of Heaven) said thus to it (The Bear): ‘Arise, Devour much flesh!’ “After this I (Daniel) looked, and there was Another, like a Leopard, which had on its Back, Four Wings of a Bird. The Beast (The Leopard) also had Four Heads, and Dominion was given to it (The Leopard). “After this I (Daniel) saw in the Night Visions, and behold, a Fourth Beast, Dreadful and Terrible, Exceedingly Strong. It (The Fourth Beast) had huge Iron Teeth; it (The Fourth Beast) was Devouring, Breaking in pieces, and Trampling the Residue with its Feet. It (The Fourth Beast) was different from All the Beasts that were before it (The Fourth Beast), and it (The Fourth Beast) had Ten Horns. I (Daniel) was considering the Horns, and there was Another Horn, a Little One, Coming Up among them (The Ten Horns), before whom Three of The First Horns were Plucked Out by the Roots. And there, in This Horn (The Little Horn), were Eyes like The Eyes of a Man, and a Mouth Speaking Pompous Words.

Daniel 7:15-28

“I, Daniel, was grieved in My Spirit within My Body, and The Visions of My Head troubled me. I (Daniel) came near to One of those who stood by, and asked him The Truth of all this. So he told me and made known to me (Daniel) The Interpretation of These Things: ‘Those Great Beasts, which are Four, are Four Kings which Arise out of the Earth. But The Saints (Believers) of The Most High (God Almighty) shall Receive The Kingdom (The Kingdom of God Almighty), and possess The Kingdom (The Kingdom of God Almighty) Forever, even Forever and ever.’ “Then I (Daniel) wished to know The Truth about The Fourth Beast, which was different from All the Others, Exceedingly Dreadful, with its Teeth of Iron and its Nails of Bronze, which Devoured, Broke in pieces, and Trampled the Residue with its Feet; and The Ten Horns that were on its Head, and The Other Horn which came up, before which Three Fell, namely, that Horn which had Eyes and a Mouth which Spoke Pompous Words, whose Appearance was Greater than His Fellows.

“I (Daniel) was watching; and The Same Horn was making War against The Saints (Believers), and Prevailing against Them (Believers), until The Ancient of Days Came, and a Judgment was Made in Favor of The Saints (Believers) of The Most High (God Almighty), and The Time came for The Saints (Believers) to Possess The Kingdom (The Kingdom of God Almighty). “Thus he said: ‘The Fourth Beast shall be a Fourth Kingdom on Earth, which shall be Different from All Other Kingdoms, and shall Devour The Whole Earth, Trample it and break it in pieces. The Ten Horns are Ten Kings who shall Arise from This Kingdom. And Another shall Rise after them; He shall be Different from The First Ones, and shall Subdue Three Kings. He shall Speak Pompous Words against The Most High (God Almighty), shall Persecute The Saints (Believers) of The Most High (God Almighty), and shall intend to change Times and Law. Then The Saints (Believers) shall be Given into His Hand, for a Time and Times and Half a Time.

‘But The Court shall be Seated, and They (The Court) shall Take Away His Dominion, to Consume and Destroy it (His Dominion) Forever. Then The Kingdom (The Kingdom of God Almighty) and Dominion, and The Greatness of The Kingdoms, under The Whole Heaven, shall be Given to The People, The Saints (Believers) of The Most High (God Almighty). His Kingdom (The Kingdom of God Almighty) is an Everlasting Kingdom, and All Dominions shall Serve and Obey Him (God Almighty).’ “This is the end of the account. As for me, Daniel, My Thoughts Greatly Troubled me, and My Countenance changed; but I (Daniel) kept the matter in My Heart.”

Revelation 13:1-10

Then I (John) stood on the sand of the Sea. And I (John) saw a Beast Rising Up out of the Sea, having Seven Heads and Ten Horns, and on His Horns, Ten Crowns, and on His Heads a Blasphemous Name. Now The Beast which I (John) saw was like a Leopard, His (The Beast’s) Feet were like The Feet of a Bear, and His (The Beast’s) Mouth like The Mouth of a Lion. The Dragon (Satan/Lucifer/the devil) Gave Him (The Beast) His (The Beast’s) Power, His (The Beast’s) Throne, and Great Authority. And I (John) saw One of His (The Beast’s) Heads, as if it (One of The Beast’s Heads) had been Mortally Wounded, and His (One of The Beast’s Heads) Deadly Wound was Healed. And All The World (Unbelievers), Marveled and Followed The Beast. So they (Unbelievers) Worshiped The Dragon (Satan/Lucifer/the devil), who Gave Authority to The Beast; and they (Unbelievers) Worshiped The Beast, saying, “Who is like The Beast? Who is able to Make War with Him (The Beast)?” And He (The Beast) was Given a Mouth Speaking Great Things and Blasphemies, and He (The Beast) was Given Authority to Continue for Forty-Two (42) Months. Then He (The Beast) Opened His (The Beast’s) Mouth in Blasphemy Against God (God Almighty), to Blaspheme His (God Almighty’s) Name, His (God Almighty’s) Tabernacle, and Those who Dwell in Heaven. It was Granted to Him (The Beast) to make War with The Saints (Believers) and to Overcome Them (The Saints/Believers). And Authority was Given Him (The Beast) Over Every Tribe, Tongue, and Nation. All (Unbelievers) who dwell on the Earth, will Worship Him (The Beast), whose names have NOT been Written in The Book of Life of The Lamb (Jesus Christ), Slain from The Foundation of The World. If ANYONE (Believers) has an Ear, let Him (Believers) HEAR. He, who leads into captivity, shall go into captivity; he, who kills with the sword, must be killed with the sword. Here is The Patience and The Faith of The Saints (Believers).

Revelation 13:11-18

Then I (John) saw Another Beast (The Second Beast) Coming Up out of the Earth, and He (The Second Beast) had Two Horns like a Lamb and spoke like a Dragon. And He (The Second Beast) Exercises All The Authority of The First Beast, in His (The First Beast’s) Presence, and Causes the Earth and those (Unbelievers) who dwell in it (The Earth) to Worship The First Beast, Whose Deadly Wound (One of The First Beast’s Heads) was Healed. He (The Second Beast) Performs Great Signs, so that He (The Second Beast) even Makes Fire Come Down from Heaven on the Earth in The Sight of Men. And He (The Second Beast) Deceives those (Unbelievers) who dwell on the Earth by Those Signs, which He (The Second Beast) was Granted to do in The Sight of The Beast (The First Beast), telling those (Unbelievers) who dwell on the Earth to Make an Image to The Beast (The First Beast) who was Wounded by the sword and Lived. He (The Second Beast) was Granted Power to Give Breath to The Image of The Beast (The First Beast), that The Image of The Beast (The First Beast) should both Speak and Cause as many (Believers) as would NOT Worship, The Image of The Beast (The First Beast) to be KILLED. He (The Second Beast) Causes ALL (Unbelievers), both Small and Great, Rich and Poor, Free and Slave, to Receive a Mark on Their (Unbelievers) Right Hand OR on Their (Unbelievers) Foreheads, and that NO ONE May Buy or Sell, EXCEPT One (Unbelievers) who has The Mark (The Mark of The Second Beast) OR The Name of The Beast (The Second Beast), OR The Number of His (The Second Beast’s) Name. Here is WISDOM. Let Him (Believers) who has UNDERSTANDING, Calculate The Number of The Beast (The Second Beast), for it is The Number of a Man (The Second Beast): His (The Second Beast’s) Number is 666.

Fellow Believers, I strongly encourage YOU, to READ and STUDY The Holy Bible, for Yourselves (Believers). May The Holy Spirit Guide YOU (Believers) and Give YOU (Believers) The Wisdom of Understanding. Amen.
