The Greek Empire
Daniel’s Dream of The Goat Prophecy: A future Greek leader will advance rapidly from the west. And as I was considering, suddenly a male goat [the Greek Empire] came from the west, across the surface of the whole earth, without touching the ground [this indicates fantastic speed]; and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes [Alexander the Great]. — Daniel 8:5 Fulfillment: Alexander the Great advanced so rapidly from the west, that military analysts to this day marvel at the speed and efficiency with which he moved his forces. Later on in Chapter 8, Daniel specifically identifies the goat as Greece– a remarkable prophecy made 300 years before Greece would rise to power.
Prophecy: Alexander the Great would attack and destroy the Media-Persian Empire, the dominant empire in the world. The ram with two horns would be attacked by the goat with one horn Daniel 8:5-7 Medes & Persians Destroyed
Alexander Dies Early Prophecy: He will die when his power is strong …but when he became strong, the large horn was broken… — Daniel 8:8 Fulfillment: Alexander died after conquering the known world, at age 33
Gives his power to four generals Prophecy: His empire will be divided into four smaller empires, none of which would be as powerful as Alexander’s empire. …and in place of it four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven… — Daniel 8:8 The large horn that is between its eyes is the first king. As for the broken horn and the four that stood up in its place, four kingdoms shall arise out of that nation, but not with its power. — Daniel 8:20-22 Fulfillment: Alexander’s empire was divided among four of his generals: Lysimachus, Cassander, Seleucus, & Ptolemy. None of these empires ever equalled Alexander’s empire in power.
