The Sound of Pompous Words

Daniel saw a vision of four beasts, representing the Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Grecian, and Roman Empires. The beast of Rome had a horn that exalted itself and put down three other horns. Then Daniel 7:9, 10 showed the Ancient of Days of holding court. After that this happened, “I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame. As for the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time” (Daniel 7:11-12).
Because of the pompous words of the horn, the beast was slain, destroyed, and burned in the fire. The other beasts had their dominion taken away, but they continued for a season and a time.
The Lord knows all that happens and will happen, revealing to Daniel how mighty empires came and went and how they would deal with God’s people.
The Lord knows what is happening in the nations of the world at the present and He knows how they deal with His people. Do not despair, therefore, because all things shall happen according to God’s plan. Be in God’s plan by following Christ Jesus.
