DANIEL THE PROPHET – LESSON 4
VISION OF THE RAM AND GOAT
 
The written language of Daniel now switches from Babylon’s local Aramaic back to Hebrew as the remainder of the book is now for God’s people to understanding.
 
In the third year of Belshazzar’s reign comes this vision. Daniel saw a ram that had two horns (kingdoms). One came up, then a higher horn exceeded the first, and became very great, such as that none could withstand him. (Daniel 8:3-4.) Verse 20 identifies the two horns as the Medes (King Darius) and the Persians (King Cyrus) who were in league together. The Persian empire became very large and powerful from approximately 538 B.C. to 335 B.C.)
 
Daniel 8:5-7 then describes a male goat that came from the West (Greece). He had one very notable horn between his eyes and moved in fury (rapidly) with power and broke (conquered) the ram. This was Alexander the Great who very rapidly conquered all the known world of that time. He then began to establish a universal Greek language along with the Greek (Hellenistic) culture. This happened around 334-322 B.C.
 
By 322-23 B.C. young Alexander had died of sickness and the “great horn was broken” (v. 8) and “came up four notable ones.” When alexander died his four generals divided his vast empire among themselves. Out of these four Greek “horns” came one called “a little horn which waxed (grew) exceedingly great.” (v. 9). Now the vision will have a two-fold fulfillment from this point onward.
 
The first is historical as the vision has covered four centuries from Babylon’s Belshazzar up to the dividing into four parts of Alexander’s Greek empire. Of those four horns, the “little horn” that became great refers to the Seleucid empire of Syria who advanced the Greek culture. In particular it speaks of Antiochus IV, known as Antiochus Epiphanes, who committed the “abomination of desolation” in 168 B.C. as it says in verse 11, “by him the daily sacrifice was taken away” from the temple in Jerusalem and God’s “sanctuary was cast down” by the (v. 13) “transgression of desolation.” 
 
This happened when Antiochus Epiphanes sacrificed an unclean pig to his own god in God’s holy Temple in Jerusalem. The vile act of desecrating God’s sanctuary by this very strong “little horn” was also a prophetic foreshadow of an even greater desecration yet to come from “the man of sin” in the end times.
 
The second part of the dream interpretation shifts to the future in verse 23 as it says, “in the latter time…a king (ruler) of fierce countenance, and understanding dark (evil) sentences, (words) shall stand up (arise)… (v. 24) but not by his own power.” (The power would be directly from Satan.)   “He shall destroy wonderfully (supernaturally)…shall magnify himself (above God) …and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people.”
 
What becomes of this evil “little horn,” the man of sin (Antichrist)? Verse 25 says that he shall stand up against (make war with) the Prince of (all) Princes (Messiah) but “he shall be broken (defeated) without hand” by the sword of the word that issues from the mouth of that Prince, the King of Kings upon His white horse along with His heavenly host. 
 
Note: Some of the “added” interpretation is taken from the Book of Revelation which takes Daniel’s vision and adds greater detail.
 
If is some interest to me that the “goat” of verses 5-8 resembles “Baphomet,” the evil “goat head” symbol of the occult that signifies Satan. It is Satan himself that possesses and empowers the Antichrist, the “little horn” who is no match for the “Big Horn” Prince (Jesus), who will establish His (and our) everlasting kingdom.

THE DANGER OF PRIDE
 
He was the most beautiful of all angels. He led the worship in heaven. Imagine the awesomeness of that praise. God created him to worship, but instead of worshipping God, he chose to exalt himself above God. He not only thought himself equal to God, but also deceived one third of all of the angels. It cost him everything. His end is the lake of fire.
 
What was it that caused this? It was pride. Pride has been the downfall of so many. It destroys oneself but also destroys those it takes down with it. Any time that we take credit for anything good instead of giving God the glory, it is an act of pride.
 
Pride causes us to be self-centered, and not God-centered. Psalms 10:4 says, “The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts.” In Proverbs 16:15 it says, “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” 
 
Kings, Presidents, Governors, husbands, wives and more have fallen to the spirit of pride. It comes in slowly, but it leaves its mark when the person falls. It is the most subtle and dangerous spirit that attacks a person. Rarely does a prideful person even realize their sin. They are so “stuck” on themselves, that they cannot see it. They have been blinded by Satan.
 
James says in 1:17, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.” We cannot take credit for any natural or supernatural gifts that God has given. If we do, it is prideful. Pride has to be dwelt with or a fall will come. Romans 12:3 says, “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”
 
This shows me that thinking we are better than someone else is having a prideful spirit. God gives each of us gifts, but remember we, as Christians, belong to Him, and we must give Him the glory in all that we put our hand to. If not, then we are full of pride. No one can make anything great other than God. Anyone that has an attitude that he is the “man of the hour” is prideful, and a fall will surely come. Look at King Nebuchadnezzar that Russell has been teaching on. Pride brought him to a 7-year stint as a human animal eating grass until “he came to his senses” and acknowledged God was number one in his life.
 
Satan’s pride came in his words: “I will” and “I shall”. He wanted to be worshipped as the great I AM. His fall came, and he wants others to fall with him. Many seek power and worship just like Satan did. The spirit behind this is pride. Pride can be little things such as your looks, your job, your success, your money, your talent, etc. Let’s examine our own hearts so we have no evidence of pride in our lives. If we find it then we must repent so we avoid a fall.

You don’t ever want to get so involved with the crowd; Until you totally ignore and forget those who genuinely love you and care about you. For one day you’ll look back on life and realize you lost some real jewels; While you were out wasting your time collecting nothing but rough useless stones.
