Daniel-The Meaning of the Scary Beast Vision

My name is Daniel.

Recently I had a vision about four beasts. Four horrible beasts. The sight upset me so much I couldn't think. I asked one of those standing near me, "What is the true meaning of all of this?"

He said, "The four great beasts are four kingdoms that will rise from the earth. But the saints of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever--yes, for ever and ever."

I still didn't understand. I asked a few more questions. "Please, tell me the true meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and, I must confess, the most terrifying. The iron teeth and bronze claws--the beast that crushed and ate its victims. The one who trampled under its foot whatever was left.  

"And, please tell me about the ten horns on its head. Also about the one that spoke. The one that looked larger than the others and had eyes and a mouth that spoke. I saw it start a war against the saints. It was winning until the Ancient of Days came and gave judgement in favor of the saints of the Most High. Those saints then possessed the kingdom."

He said, "The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. 

"The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them, another king will arise, different from the earlier ones. He will conquer three kings. He will speak against the Most High and will hurt his saints. He will try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for three and a half years.

"But the court will sit, and this evil one's power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. The power and greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be handed over to the saints, the people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom. All rulers will worship and obey him.

So this was the end of the vision and its meaning. I was so upset by my thoughts. My face turned pale, but I kept the whole thing a secret.
