Daniel 7 ~ Reading Through The Bible


Reading through the Bible in the Book of Daniel
Daniel's Dream ~

Daniel said: In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea. Four great beasts, each different from the others came up out of the sea.
The first was like a lion. The second beast looked like a bear. Before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard.

The explanation:

Daniel 7:23-26

He gave me this explanation: The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of all the kingdoms under the heaven will be handed over to the holy people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him.

In my vision at night I looked and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed. Daniel 7:13-14 NIV



This month I'm reading through the Bible in the book of Daniel from January 2nd to January 13th. I'm also following along with the Bible Study at Deeper Waters

    1. Daniel's dreams are fascinating to read and can only imagine his amazement and even concern. We, being on the other side of Jesus, it seems more clear to us probably what his dreams were telling him. Thanks for your visit and comment. :)
