A.        VISION OF THE FOUR BEASTS

QUESTION 1 (Read Daniel 7:1-7)
To begin this new line of prophecies, Daniel
takes us back to Belshazzar's first year. In a
night vision he sees "the great sea" lashed by
winds. As he watches, four fantastic animals
rise out of the water. What animals did they
resemble?

                           Lion                  wings
     "The first was like a ____ ,and had eagle's _____ ." (verse 7:4)

                    Seminar

QUESTION 2 (Daniel 7:16,17)

What did the heavenly messenger in the vision say the four beasts
represented? (verse 17,23)
                     Kingdoms
        ANSWER. Four _________


 These four kingdoms of Daniel 7 are the same as the
 four kingdoms of Daniel 2.

 BABYLON           MEDO-PERSIA            GREECE         ROME
                                                             5

                    Seminar

B.     THE TEN HORNS
QUESTION 3 (Daniel 7:7,24)

 The fourth beast, representing Rome, had ten horns. What did
 the ten horns represent?
                         kings
 "The ten horns are ten _____ who shall arise from this
 kingdom." (Rome) (verse 24)
 The ten horns of Daniel 7 represent the same ten kingdoms as the
 feet and toes of the image of Daniel 2. In both cases the ten are
 shown as the residue of the Roman empire after its break-up.
                                                                6

          A "LITTLE HORN" KINGDOM EMERGES
This kingdom must be important because most of the
chapter from here on focuses upon it. What facts can we
find to help us identify the little horn kingdom?
it arises "from", or "out of" the
fourth beast (Rome)
comes up "among" the ten
horns (Europe)
comes up "after" the ten

 is "different" from the other
 horns
 is little but looks "greater"
 than the other ten
 "plucks out", "subdues"
 three of the ten
