    Chapters 2,7,8 have similarities and synergies. The 10 horns coming out of the beast are the European nations. what form thats going to take at the end times is debated.

    I agree with most of this. This sets it out very well, visually.

    Babylon is the Nations that come against Israel at Meggido. Go read Revelation 16:19. It is not a place or City.

    Go reread Matthew with this in mind. The Lord has just given me all of Matthew 24's meaning. The Nation will rise against nation rumors of war etc. was Jesus telling his disciples about the destruction of the Temple. They asked him 3 questions. When will these things com to pass ? TEMPLE JESUS SPOKE OF.....What will be the sign of your coming and when will the End be. If you notice, Jesus never speaks to them about the Temple again....OR DOES HE ? I understood verse 6 to be Jesus telling them about the Temple, I had always overlooked it....Matthew 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

    Jesus knowing all things, knew that the Holy Spirit would lead them away from Jerusalem at this time, else the Church might have been wiped out. So they will hear of these wars and rumors of wars, (Temple being destroyed/Rome conquering the uprising in Jerusalem) but Jesus says, THE END IS NOT YET. So Jesus does tell them about the Temple.

    Then he mentions Kingdom vs. Kingdom etc. etc. Reminding them this is NOT THE END, there are many more wars coming. I think Jesus was trying to emphasize, the Temple Destruction was not THE END TIMES.

    Then of course he told them about the Rapture Matthew 24:32-44

    The Times of Trouble Matthew 24:16-26

    The Second Coming Matthew 24:27-31

    The HE in Dan. 9:27 is the Anti-Christ.............

    The Beast in Rev. 13 represents ALL THE BEASTS of All Time, of which the Anti-Christ is one of the Seven Heads. They would be Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome and the Anti-Christ. You have to have Conquered Israel whilst she was in the Land of Israel, to be a BEAST !! Daniel 7 proves this.

    Daniel 7 is actually 5 BEASTS in total. Gabriel only interprets the Dream for Daniel. There is the Loin (Babylon) the Bear which stands for (Persia) the Leopard which is of course (Greece) the Fierce Beast (Rome) and the Little Horn, which arises out of the footprint of Rome.........In the LATTER TIME !!

    I know fully about the Decree and its meaning. I also know when Gabriel came he explained to Daniel that he was confused. The 70 years he assumed were Seventy Sevens.

    Daniel reckoning the 70 years from the year 605 (when the Jews went into exile) would bring the end of the 70 years to 536 B.C.E. Daniel realized that the captivity had only about three years to go.

    But Daniel not only expected the captivity to end after 70 years, he also expected a final termination of any possibility of future desolation's for Jerusalem. He had acted as if the messianic kingdom were about to occur: since the Word of God was to be established on the basis of prayer, he prayed; and realizing that the prerequisite was the confession of national sin, he confessed the sins of Israel.

    Then, while Daniel was presenting his supplications,(Daniel 9:20-23) he was interrupted. He apparently had intended to say more, when Gabriel arrived. The interruption came by the touch of the angel’s hand, "about the time of the evening oblation." This refers to the daily, regular evening sacrifice that was offered while the temple stood. Although it had not been practiced for seven decades, Daniel showed his longing for the return from captivity and for the rebuilding of the temple by remembering the sacrifice.

    Gabriel told Daniel that the purpose of his visit was 1. to correct Daniel’s misunderstanding concerning when the messianic kingdom would be set up and 2. to present God’s revelation, which contained a timetable for Messiah’s coming.

    THE DECREE OF THE SEVENTY SEVENS: Daniel 9:24

    Gabriel’s prophecy to Daniel began with the words, “Seventy sevens are decreed upon thy people and upon thy holy city…”

    Many English versions have translated the phrase to read “seventy weeks.” But this translation is not totally accurate and has caused some confusion about the meaning of the passage. Most Jews know the Hebrew for “weeks” because of the observance of the Feast of Weeks, and that Hebrew word is shavuot. However, the word that appears in the Hebrew text is shavuim, which means “sevens.” The word refers to a “seven” of anything, and the context determines the content of the seven.

    Here it is obvious Daniel had been thinking in terms of years—specifically the 70 years of captivity. Daniel had assumed that the captivity would end after 70 years and that the kingdom would be established after 70 years. But here Gabriel was using a play upon words in the Hebrew text, pointing out that insofar as Messiah’s kingdom was concerned, it was not “70 years,” but “70 sevens of years,” a total of 490 years (70 times seven).

    This period of 490 years had been “decreed” over the Jewish people and over the holy city of Jerusalem. The Hebrew word translated “decreed” literally means “to cut off” or “to determine.” In chapters 2, 7 and 8, God revealed to Daniel the course of future world history in which gentiles would have a dominant role over the Jewish people. This lengthy period, which began with the Babylonian Empire to continue until the establishment of Messiah’s kingdom, is for that reason often referred to as the “Times of the Gentiles.” Now the prophet was told that a total of 490 years was to be “cut out” of the Times of the Gentiles, and a 490-year period had been “determined” or “decreed” for the accomplishment of the final restoration of Israel and the establishment of Messiah’s kingdom.

    The focus of the program of the 70 sevens was “thy people and…thy holy city.” The “people” were Daniel’s people, the Jewish people, and the city was Daniel’s city, Jerusalem. Though he had spent the vast majority of his life in the city of Babylon, Jerusalem was still Daniel’s city. For Jews, whether they are in the land or outside the land, their city is always Jerusalem and not any other.

    I can give you the purpose of the seventy sevens if needed.

    The Little Horn is the Beast.

    Daniel 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. 9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, (JESUS) whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.

    Daniel 7:11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.


    Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

    You still think the LITTLE HORN is not the Beast of Revelation or Anti-Christ?

    It seems that based on Revelation 15:6-7 that there are seven plague angels . . . seven angels who had the seven plagues were given seven vials or bowls. A trumpet starts a plague and a vial / bowl finishes it? For each angel?
