The Little Horn Of Daniel 7

This Revelation Timeline Decoded Bible study focuses on the Little Horn of Daniel 7.

After the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D., the Roman Empire split into 10 civil kingdoms.  Then Satan caused the Roman Catholic Church, the little horn of Daniel, to rise to power.  They caused three of the kingdoms to be plucked out, as they would not bow down to their authority.

Here’s my Revelation Timeline Decoded Bible Study video on the little horn of Daniel 7.

Daniel 7:7 “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns“

Greece was defeated by Rome, the fourth beast of Daniel 7, the dreadful and terrible beast that trampled everything in its path, including the Jews and Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

The Roman Empire was different as it killed millions of Christians in Rome, as Satan used them to try to wipe out the Early Church.

When the last Roman Emperor was removed in 476 A.D., the Roman Empire split into 10 civil kingdoms.

Daniel 7:8 “and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots.

The groups that held Roman territories and formed their own kingdoms included the Franks, Huns, Visigoths, Ostrogoths, Heruli, Lombards, Anglo-Saxons, Suevi, Vandals, and Burgundians.

Out of the ten kingdoms, the Little Horn of the Roman Catholic Church emerged, which claimed authority over both the civil world and the ecclesiastic world.

The Roman Catholic Church subdued and destroyed three of the ten kingdoms; the Heruli, Ostrogoths and Vandals; who did not bow down to their authority.

Daniel 7:8 “And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.

The office of the Papacy acts and speaks for the whole body. The Popes spoke pompous words, proclaiming to be God, to be Jesus Christ, and that salvation is only through the Roman Catholic Church, all of which is Antichrist.

Pope Pius IX said “I alone… am the successor of the apostles, the vicar of Jesus Christ. I am the way, the truth, and the life…” (Source: History of the Christian Church, by Henry Charles Sheldon, p. 59.)

Pope Boniface VIII said “We declare, say, define, and pronounce, that it is absolutely necessary for the salvation of every human creature to be subject to the Roman Pontiff.” (Source: Bull “Unam Sanctum,” as cited in “Apostolic Digest, Book V: The Book of Obedience”)

Pope John Paul II said  “Don’t go to God for forgiveness of sins: come to me.” (Source: Los Angeles Times, December 12, 1984.)

Daniel 7:25 “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.

The Roman Catholic Church persecuted the followers of Christ, during the Dark Ages and the Inquisition.

At the Council of Nicaea in 325 AD they changed the calendar to be based only on the sun; not the sun, moon and stars as the Most High ordained in Genesis 1:14.

In the Catechism, they removed God’s 2nd Commandment, which forbids idol worship, and divided the 10th commandment into two.

The Scriptural year starts in the spring. Pope Gregory XIII moved the start of the year from April 1st to January 1st. It was widely advertised, but still people missed it and kept celebrating the new year on April 1st. They were seen as fools and hence the term ‘April Fools Day.’

The antichrist beast popes reigned for 1,260 years, from 538 A.D. when Emperor Justinian gave them power over all churches; until 1798 A.D., when the Pope was taken captive and imprisoned, where he later died.

  1. Has I continue studying the layers in Revelation, I realise how little I truly understood about the exciting unfolding of history as revealed by the Holy Spirit to John the Revelatory. I have been so blessed by this outstanding structure of this website. I will tell anyone who is serious about knowing God and want a deeper understanding of our Almighty King of Kings to check out this website. may God richly bless your work.

    • Thank you for your comment Robert! I’m blessed to know that the studies are helping you see the truth about prophecy fulfillment. I make the studies as concise and straight-forward as possible, without the hype of other prophecy teachers. Learning the exact historical fulfillment of prophecy is exciting enough! Keep learning and growing in The Way! David

      p.s. here is my YouTube channel where I’ve posted some prophecy fulfillment video.

  2. Hi David, thank you so much for your response, it is becoming more and more clear….
    Please explain Danial 8 which seems that it ties into Danila 2 and 7 but with a different slant? I have looked on your site but cannot find anything on this.
    Many thanks and be richly Blessed!

    • Hi Peter. There’s a brief summary of Daniel 8 on this study, which primarily points to the Medo-Persian Empire which followed the Babylonian Empire.

      Other than the prophecies in Daniel 2 and 7, which point to the Roman beast and it’s Little Horn leader, the antichrist beast Popes; and the kingdom of Elohim being setup; I think that the rest of the prophecies in Daniel were fulfilled by the end of the first century.

      Keep learning and growing in The Way!

  3. RE: ……. “In the Catechism, they removed God’s 2nd Commandment, which forbids idol worship, and divided the 10th commandment into two.”

    REPLY: There are more than ten commands on the stones. No one really knows how they were originally arranged. You can also check to see that Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5 are not exactly the same commands.

    Some things on these stones were explanations/examples of the so-called only ten commands: Idols worship/graven images worship were just one type of strange gods. The Catholic version is “1. I AM THE LORD THY GOD: THOU SHALT NOT HAVE STRANGE GODS BEFORE ME.”

    “Exodus 20
    2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

    3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

    4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

    5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;”

    There are 4 commands, not just 2 in these verses. The Catholics put all four together and call them “strange gods”. Nothing at all can be put before God in importance. Worship is reserved for God alone.

    The Catholics say that there are many kinds of “strange gods”, some are graven images/idols, but some are not. A strange god is any person or object or intangible asset that is worshiped as a god (it is esteemed more important than serving/obeying God). See Colossians 3:5-6.

    Remember the bronze serpent in Exodus? First God commanded that bronze serpent be made so that any person who looked upon it would be cured by God of snakebite. See Numbers 21:8 This bronze serpent was not a graven image/idol because it was not used as an object of worship. (Many other commanded by God objects were decor and these were also not used as objects of worship. See example in Exodus 25:18.)

    NOW, back to the bronze serpent that God commanded to be made:
    Much later, people started to worship the bronze serpent as their god. They even gave it a name, Nehushtan. That is why it had to be destroyed. See 2 Kings 18:4 The Israelites had thwarted the original purpose of the bronze serpent which was for a good purpose (conduit for God’s healing of snakebite injuries) to an object of worship (evil purpose) which was against God’s command to not esteem anything or anyone above Him. Worship is reserved to God alone. Vehicles, money, family members, power, public esteem, etc. can all become idols (strange gods). See Matthew 10:37, Matthew 19:29, Colossians 3:5, Matthew 6:24

    In the OT, women were considered property. In the NT, women and men have equal dignity in the eyes of God and so they should have equal dignity in the eyes of all people. See Galatians 3:28. We Christians are forbidden to covet another person’s spouse, not just men forbidden to covet another man’s wife. Women are not men’s property and should not be treated as such.
