2 READ:DANIEL 7:1-3 1In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head while on his bed. Then he wrote down the dream, telling the main facts. 2Daniel spoke, saying, "I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. 3"And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.

3 QUESTIONS:DANIEL 7:1-3 1In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head while on his bed. Then he wrote down the dream, telling the main facts. WHEN DID DANIEL HAVE THIS DREAM? WHO WAS BELSHAZZAR? (SEE: DANIEL CHAPTER 5) WAS THIS A DREAM OR A VISION? WHERE WAS HE WHEN HE HAD THIS DREAM? WHAT DID HE WRITE DOWN?

4 WHY WRITE THESE THINGS DOWN? ISAIAH 8:1 1Moreover the LORD said to me, "Take a large scroll, and write on it with a man's pen concerning Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz.(NKJ) ISAIAH 30:8 8Go, write it before them on a tablet, and note it on a scroll, that it may be for time to come, forever and ever: HABAKKUK 2:2 2The LORD answered me and said: "Write the vision and make it plain on tablets, that he may run who reads it. REVELATION 1:19 19"Write the things which you have seen, and the things which are, and the things which will take place after this.(NKJ) (REVELATION 14:13REVELATION 21:5)

5 WHAT DID DANIEL SEE? 2Daniel spoke, saying, "I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. 3"And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other. JEREMIAH 49:36 36Against Elam I will bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and scatter them toward all those winds; there shall be no nations where the outcasts of Elam will not go.(NKJ) WHAT CAME OUT OF THE SEA?

6 READ:DANIEL 7:4-8 4"The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off. It was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man's heart was given to it. 5Suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: 'Arise, devour much flesh!' 6"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.

7 QUESTIONS:DANIEL 7:4-8 4"The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off.

WHY WINGS OF AN EAGLE? WHAT HAPPENED TO ITS WINGS? WHAT HAPPENED TO THIS BEAST? WHAT WAS GIVEN TO IT?

HOSEA 13:8 8I will meet them like a bear deprived of her cubs; I will tear open their rib cage, and there I will devour them like a lion. The wild beast shall tear them.(NKJ)

10 QUESTIONS:DANIEL 7:4-8 6"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. WHAT WAS THE THIRD BEAST LIKE? WHY A LEOPARD?

11 JEREMIAH 5:6 6A lion from the forest shall slay them, a wolf of the deserts shall destroy them; a leopard will watch over their cities. Everyone who goes out from there shall be torn in pieces, because their transgressions are many; their backslidings have increased.(NKJ) Hosea 13:7 7"I will be to them like a lion; like a leopard by the road I will lurk;(NKJ)
