Parallels and patterns.
Daniel and Revelation are together in this.
Daniel 7: 7. “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.”
Daniel 7: 8. “I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.”
The little horn, speaks and Heaven reacts when the Ancient of days sets the judgment.
Daniel 7: 9. “I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire.”
Daniel 7: 10. “A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the JUDGMENT WAS SET, and THE BOOKS WERE OPENED.”
We have the same event with more detail in Revelation 4.
Revelation 4: 1. “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.”
Revelation 4: 2. “And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.”
Revelation 4: 3. “And he that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald.”
Revelation 4: 4. “And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.”
Revelation 4: 5. “And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.”
Revelation 4: 6. “And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.” 7. “And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle.”
Revelation 4: 8. “And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.” 9. “And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever,” 10. “The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,”
Revelation 4: 11. “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
Revelation 5: 1. “And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne A BOOK written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.”
Revelation 5: 2. “And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, WHO IS WORTHY TO OPEN THE BOOK, and to loose the seals thereof?”
Revelation 5: 3. “And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.”
Revelation 5: 4. “And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.”
Revelation 5: 5. “And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDA, the ROOT OF DAVID, HATH PREVAILED TO OPEN THE BOOK, and to loose the seven seals thereof.”
Revelation 5: 6. And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Revelation 5: 7. “And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.”
Revelation 5: 8. “And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before THE LAMB, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.”
Revelation 5: 9. “And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.”
Revelation 5: 10. “And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever.”
Lets go back to Daniel.
Daniel 7: 11. “I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.”
Daniel 7: 12. “As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time”
The beast will be killed and the lion, bear, leopard remnant leaders and those that followed the beast and Satan will be killed by the sword, but first the wedding supper.
Daniel 7: 13. “I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.”
In Revelation 19: 1 to 10. we have our LORD Jesus, with the redeemed.
Revelation 19: 1. “And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:”
Revelation 19: 2. “For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.”
The above woman in verse 2. can be recognised by reading Ezekiel 16: 1 – 63.
Revelation 19: 3. “And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.”
Revelation 19: 4. “And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.”
Revelation 19: 5. “And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.”
Revelation 19: 6.”And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.”
Daniel 7: 14. “And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.”
It is in Revelation 19: “where the beast is killed then the lion, bear leopard beasts and their followers are to be killed by the sword.”
Revelation 19: 20. “And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
Revelation 19: 21. “And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.”
There is much more detail in Daniel leading up to the resurrection that needs our attention also Revelation, concerning the tribulation period, the millennium and the demise of Satan. Then we will see a new earth and new heaven
Daniel 7: 17. “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.”
Daniel 7: 18. “But the saints of the most High shall take the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever.”
