Today on A Study In The Word, Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart and panel discuss Daniel 7:20. Brother Swaggart asks, why would the Holy Spirit shade the meaning as He did; with using ten horns, and not saying ten nations, and why refer to the Antichrist as the little horn, knowing that it’s difficult to understand, leaving Daniel wondering? Jesus Himself used parables to teach phenomenal truths, doctrines. This forces believers to dig into it, to ascertain what is being said, and to seek the face of the Lord and not take it for granted. There has to be a Spiritual discernment that takes place here, dealing now with the political structures and systems that are going to affect Israel in the future. The Lord, of course, showed Daniel the mountain peaks of history, and the future. He doesn’t bring in the detail, nor deal with the era of the church, but he said that these things will be sealed up and revealed at a later time. Brother Swaggart says, it wasn’t necessarily for Daniel to know the fullness of the timing of the coming of Messiah.
