  • Striding Lion from the Ishtar Gate of the palace of Nebuchadnezzar, Babylon. Pergamon Museum, Berlin, Germany\n\nThe colorful striding lion, its mouth opened in a threatening roar, once decorated a side of the 'Processional Way' in ancient Babylon (the Biblical city of Babel). The 'Processional Way' led out of the city through a massive gate named for the Mesopotamian goddess of love and war, Ishtar, whose symbol was the lion. Each year, during the celebration of the great New Year Festival, the images of the city's deities were carried out through the Ishtar Gate and along the 'Processional Way' past some 120 lions such as this one to a special festival house north of the city.

  • •Now the text reverts back to Hebrew. The theme has changed from the times of the Gentiles to Israel's history during these times. The development of the argument: chapter 8--building Jerusalem and the temple; chapter 9--Persian time to the tribulation/destroying Jerusalem and the temple; chapters 10-12--Persian time to the millennial kingdom. \n\n•Chapter 8: Israel under Medo-Persia and Greece.\n\n\n\n

  • •1-2Third year of Belshazzar--551 B.C. Susa or Shushanwas the summer palace. Daniel was probably in Babylon, but was transported in this vision 230 miles east of Babylon to what would become the capital of Persia, and the home of Esther and of Nehemiah.\n\n
  • Daniel started out in Judah, the southern kingdom of Judah and Israel, in Jerusalem. In the year 604, he was carried off into captivity to Babylon, which today would be Iraq. Now he sees himself. He is not actually there, but he sees himself in his dream 200 miles further east in what is today Iran. He sees himself at Susa, which 100 years later from this point there is going to be a queen in Susa or Shushan. There will be a king named Xerxes or Artaxerxes. His queen will be a woman by the name of Esther.\n\nSo now Daniel sees himself in another country in another time frame, and all of this because God allowed him to have spiritual insight that nobody else had at that time. That’s the venue in which he sees this new vision of God. Source: http://www.backtothebible.org/radio/today/180\n\nDaniel saw in the vision a scene with himself in it on the Ulai Canal, a wide artificial canal connecting the Choaspes (modern Kerkha) River with the Coprates (modern Abdizful) River, which flowed just outside the city of Susa. Susa was one of the royal residences/capitals of the Persian rulers (Neh.1:1; Est.1:2; Dan.8:2). Here the Persian kings came to reside for the winter. It was named after the large number of lilies that grew in great numbers in the area. Susa was the setting for the story of Esther (term occurs 19x in the book).\n\n# Susa was rebuilt by the Persian king Darius the Great (522-486).\n# The Apadana palace was clearly his favorite residence.\n# During the reign of Artaxerxes I (465-424) a fire destroyed much of the buildings from this age.\n# It was rebuilt.\n# King Artaxerxes II Mnemon (404-358) built a second audience hall on the opposite bank of the river.\n# Here, muslims venerate the tomb of the prophet Daniel.\n# There were other capitals (Pasargadae, Persepolis, and Ecbatana) but it is evident that Susa was the more impressive.\n# After the fall of the Achaemenid empire and the reign of Alexander the Great, Susa became part of the Seleucid empire.\n# It was now called Seleucian on the Eulaeus.\n# The city remained important until the 13th century.\nSource: http://www.versebyverse.org/classnotes/Daniel/Daniel8.html\n
  • •3-4The key is in verse 20. Does not deal with Babylon at all; only with the second and third empires of Daniel 2 and 7. \n\n--The longer horn, Persia, came up later and became predominant. Cyrus and his son Cambyses II established the largest empire the world had seen to that day.\n\n

  • God often uses the principle of repetition and enlargement in unfolding the development of prophecy. That means the same history is repeated using different symbolism as the themes are enlarged and described in fuller detail. Daniel 7 repeats and enlarges the prophecy of Daniel 2. (http://www.teachinghearts.org/dre17hdan07.html)\n\n\nGod gave both Nebuchadnezzar (Ch.2) and Daniel (Ch.7) dreams about the future, but Daniel’s dream has more details. \n\n“Daniel 2:41-42 talks about the toes of the feet of Nebuchadnezzar’s statue and Daniel 7 refers to ten horns on the monster. This is the future empire which will be a coalition of ten nations. It will control the world. This coalition of ten nations will come to power during a time we call the Tribulation. It will be a terrible time in which to live. Jesus spoke of this future empire during his last recorded sermon, the Olivet Discourse. He warned those who were listening and He warns us today about the misery this empire will cause.\n \n But pray that your flight may not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath; for then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall. And unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days shall be cut short. (NASB) Matt. 24:20-22” Source: http://www.neverthirsty.org/pp/series/DAN/D010/D0102.html\n\n\n

  • God often uses the principle of repetition and enlargement in unfolding the development of prophecy. That means the same history is repeated using different symbolism as the themes are enlarged and described in fuller detail. Daniel 7 repeats and enlarges the prophecy of Daniel 2. (http://www.teachinghearts.org/dre17hdan07.html)\n\n\nGod gave both Nebuchadnezzar (Ch.2) and Daniel (Ch.7) dreams about the future, but Daniel’s dream has more details. \n\n“Daniel 2:41-42 talks about the toes of the feet of Nebuchadnezzar’s statue and Daniel 7 refers to ten horns on the monster.

  • --A multi-phase conquest of Medo-Persia. In 334, Alexander came "from the west" wanting to avenge what the Persians had done in Greece about 150 years before. (The Greco-Persian war lasted with interludes of peace from 493-479, and the Greeks stopped the Persian conquest.) He crossed the Hellespont and defeated the Persian armies at the River Granicus. In 333, he defeated Darius III at the Battle of Issus near Antioch. Then he swept south to occupy Egypt after taking Tyre and Gaza in prolonged sieges. Retracing his steps through Syria, the conqueror met the Persians in 331 and defeated them a third time near the site of old Nineveh, even though they had amassed much larger and more powerful armies. \n\n\n“In 332 BC - 331 BC, Alexander was welcomed as a liberator in Egypt and was pronounced the son of Zeus by Egyptian priests of the god Ammon at the Oracle of the god at the Siwa Oasis in the Libyan desert. Henceforth, Alexander referred to the god Zeus-Ammon as his true father, and subsequent currency featuring his head with ram horns was proof of this widespread belief. He founded Alexandria in Egypt, which would become the prosperous capital of the Ptolemaic dynasty after his death.” Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_the_Great\n\nImage source:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:MacedonEmpire.jpg\n

  • •8Alexander drove on to capture and sack the Persian cities of Shushan, Ecbatana, and Persepolis. Still continuing his conquest, he swept eastward to India, but then returned with his weary armies to Babylon. He destroyed Persia as a world power and conquered the greatest amount of territory of any of history's kings or soldiers. But he died in 323 at the age of 32 (in a drunken stupor) of Babylonian swamp fever. \n\n

That was God’s view of Daniel. What a contrast. This precious man prayed for the sins of others as though they were his own.\n Daniel was part of a special group - a small group men who were special to God. There have been certain men that God has highly respected because of their heart for Him. Men like Enoch, Moses, Elijah, Abraham, the apostle John, and Daniel.

  • --Titus Vespasian led four Roman legions to besiege and destroy Jerusalem in A.D. 70. The temple that was built in the time of Ezra and rebuilt by Herod was destroyed. General Titus ordered his soldiers to leave the temple intact, but Jesus' prediction in Matthew 24:2 was fulfilled when (it is said) a torch was thrown through an archway by a soldier; this set the tapestries on fire, and the whole building became an inferno. The decorative gold melted and ran down into the cracks of the stone floors. When the remains cooled, the soldiers in their greed for wealth literally overturned the stones in search of the gold. \n\nNebucadnezzar destroyed Solomon’s Temple in 586 B.C.. The Jews would rebuild it as Herod’s Temple over decades, completing it in 68 A.D., only to be destroyed by the Romans in 70A.D., with the Roman general Titus carrying off the temple vessels.\n\nThe destruction of the Second Temple and its plunder by the Roman legions marked the beginning of Israel's long exile, which ended with the birth of the state of Israel. \n\nToday, Jews want to reclaim Mt.

  • --"desolations are determined"/war and desolation will be the continuing experience of the Jewish people between the 69th and 70th weeks.\n\n--Leopold Cohn, a European rabbi, studied this prophecy and concluded that Messiah had already come, since His coming was to be before the destruction of Jerusalem in A.D. 70. Approaching an older rabbi, he asked where Messiah was. The rabbi said, "Go to New York and you will find Messiah there." Selling most of his belongings to buy passage to America, Cohn wandered the streets of New York City looking for Messiah. One day he heard singing coming from a building and went in, only to hear a clear Gospel message. He received the Lord Jesus Christ as Messiah and Savior. Cohn began to hold gospel meetings and founded ABMJ. \n\n

Now that his people are back in the land, Daniel set his heart on understanding what would happen them in the latter days (vv. 12, 14). It is possible that while he fasted, the Jews were setting up the foundation of the second temple in Jerusalem.

The dragon and his angels waged war, \n\nSeraphim\nIs. 6:1 ¶ In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. \nIs. 6:2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. \nIs. 6:3 And one called out to another and said,\n“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD of hosts,\nThe whole earth is full of His glory.”\nIs. 6:6 ¶ Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. \nIs. 6:7 He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven.” \n

  • Not only were the visions terrifying, but the presence of the angelic beings were also positively frightening to Daniel, as these postures illustrate. Surely, there will be no arrogance or bravado of men in the presence of the Ancient of Days, but more likely, literal terror and intense awe.\n\nDan. 10:9 But I heard the sound of his words; and as soon as I heard the sound of his words, I fell into a deep sleep on my face, with my face to the ground. \nDan. 10:10 ¶ Then behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. \nDan. 10:11 He said to me, “O Daniel, man of high esteem, understand the words that I am about to tell you and stand upright, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. \nDan. 10:15 ¶ When he had spoken to me according to these words, I turned my face toward the ground and became speechless. \n

  • --Daniel remained faithful to the end of his lengthy earthly sojourn. He never dropped out of the race, but fixed his eyes on the prize set before him. What kept him faithful to the process was the discipline and dependence that made him a man of the Word, a man of prayer, and a man of faith and obedience.\n\n--Daniel's concern for the spiritual welfare of his people illustrates a burden for the people to whom he been called to minister. Ask God for a specific burden and become an intercessor. \n\n--Be aware of the spiritual warfare and the weapons of the warfare. 2 Corinthians 10:3-5; Ephesians 6:11-12. Jesus called Satan "the ruler [prince] of this world" three times (John 12:31; 14:30; 16:11), and the devil's claim to be able to offer all the kingdoms of the world was no sham (Luke 4:5-6). There is a hierarchy and network of evil ("the world forces of this darkness") that acts as the counterpart to the hierarchy of elect angels (Col. 1:16).\n\n--Broaden your perspective of human history to include the unseen forces behind the nations as well as God's sovereign purposes from creation to consummation. The greatest demonstrations of human barbarity and cruelty energized by demonic power have been reserved for this century. The combination of a loss of moral absolutes with an exponential growth of knowledge and power. And it will continue to grow worse, climaxing in the tribulation. But Satan's doom was sealed at the cross (John 16:11), and God's purposes will be accomplished. \n\n

  • We see the principle of repetition and enlargement again in Chapter 11, just as we did previously in Chapters 2 and 7. Nebuchadnezzar’s vision of the statue in Chapter 2 illustrated future kingdoms, with the head of gold representing the Babylonian empire, the chest and arms of sliver representing the Medo-Perisan empire, the belly and thighs of bronze representing the Grecian kingdom, the legs of iron representing the Roman empire, and lastly, the feet of clay mixed with iron representing the yet future revived Roman Empire. Daniel chapter 7 provides deeper insight into these kingdoms, representing them as beasts, and providing further insights into each of them. Just as Daniel chapter 8 focuses on the two empires of Medo-Persia and Greece, so also does Daniel 11, also providing specific insights, such as delineating virtually the entire succession of rulers in both empires up to the key ruler that prefigures the Antichrist, namely, Antiochus Ephiphanes IV. Daniel 11 finishes by disclosing the events of the apocalypse, describing in detail the activities and final defeat of the Antichrist.\n\n
