The Four Beasts of the Sea

Bible Verse Daniel 7:3-7

And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other. The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings. And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it. 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.

Commentary:

The Lord had given Daniel a vision during the first year of the reign of Belshazzar king of Babylon. Belshazzar had taken the throne approximately twenty-two years before, after the death of his father king Nebuchadnezzar, who reigned for forty-three years. This vision is similar to the vision given to king Nebuchadnezzar many years earlier regarding the Gentile nations which would rule the known world from king Nebuchadnezzar's time to the return of Christ.

The sea represents the gentile nations and peoples of the world. The first beast which is the lion with eagle's wings represents Babylon. And we can see the winged lion today represented on the restored gate of Babylon in Iraq. The second beast, the bear is higher on one side than the other representing the Medo-Persian Empire. The fact that the bear is higher on one side signifies Persia's ultimate superiority over the Medes.

The third beast represented by the leopard with wings and four heads represents the Greek Empire lead by Alexander the Great. The wings signify the speed in which he conquered. The four heads represent Alexander's four generals who divided his kingdom after his untimely death, ruling over Macedonia, Asia Minor, Syria and Egypt.

The fourth terrible beast represents the Roman Empire which was never conquered. Rather it fell apart in 476 B.C., part of which lived on as Europe. The ten horns of the terrible beast represent a future revived form of the Roman Empire that will once again rise before the return of Christ. This revived form of the Roman Empire will have ten ruling parts. Which represents ten kings along with their geographical regions, three of which are subdued by the Antichrist.

We Have Eternal Life in Christ

1st John 5:13-14

These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

Counting the Cost and Following Christ

Luke 14:27-30

And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it lest, after he has laid the foundation, and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish.

We Live By Faith in Jesus

Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

All Fall Short; But Christ Saves

Romans 3:22-23, 6:23, 10:11-13, 10:9

For there is no difference; for all have sinned and [all] fall short of the glory of God, For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. For the Scripture says, Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame. ...for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Stay Strong in Christ, Do Not Reject the Gospel

Hosea 4:6-7

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. The more they increased, The more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame.

We Too Should Count the Cost

Luke 14:28

But don't begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it?

We are the Light, Shinning the Gospel to Others

Matthew 5:14-15

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

The Lord is Mercy and Truth

Psalm 25:9-11

Good and upright is the Lord; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way. The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way. All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies. For Your name's sake, O Lord, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great.

We Are All Precious to the Lord

Psalm 36:7

How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings.

The Lord is Merciful and Faithful

Psalm 36:5-9

Your mercy, O Lord, is in the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds. Your righteousness is like the great mountains; Your judgments are a great deep; O Lord, You preserve man and beast. How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings. They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, And You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.

Fear of the Lord and Humility Brings Wisdom

Proverbs 3:7, 1:7, 10:27

Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction. The fear of the Lord prolongs days, But the years of the wicked will be shortened.
