Daniel 8 & dual prophecy

3. I looked up, and there before me was a ram with two horns (representing the Medes and the Persians empire v 20), standing beside the canal, and the horns were long (and powerful). One of the horns was longer than the other but grew up later. (The ram had 2 horns, with the longer horn coming up last. The Medes came first, and then the Persians who were larger and became more dominant in 550 B.C.).

4. I watched the ram as he charged toward the west and the north and the south
(This ram comes from the East). No animal could stand against him, and none could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great.


5. As I was thinking about this (considering what the ram symbolized), suddenly a goat with a prominent horn (a very conspicuous horn) between his eyes came from the west (Alexander came from Greece), crossing the whole earth without touching the ground (in other words, he was crossing the land so swiftly, his feet did not touch the ground – remember the 4 wings of a leopard See Dan 7:6).

6. He came toward the two-horned ram
(Medo-Persia) I had seen standing beside the canal and charged at him in great rage. 7I saw him attack the ram furiously, striking the ram and shattering his two horns. The ram was powerless to stand against him; the goat knocked him to the ground and trampled on him, and none could rescue the ram from his power. (Symbolizing the military conquest of Alexander’s Grecian army over Medo-Persia).

As I read this scripture with knowledge of past fulfillment understand this could be in some
measure of confidence as attack on Iran from the United States. It fits with current political outlook. MHO
