As we begin Chapter 2 of this study we should understand we are under the power of the sixth kingdom which is the kingdom of the children of Satan. It is this kingdom that will receive a Deadly Wound as we outlined in the previous Chapter. In this Chapter we will discuss the Ram and the He Goat of Daniel 8 both historically and presently, analyzing what it means for us today and in the near future. The conflict in Daniel 8 is an event that will transpire just before we see the rise of the Ten Kings of the Earth, the Ten Clay Kings from Chapter 1 of this study which occurs before the Tribulation of Satan. In fact, it is this conflict that gives rise to these Ten Clay Kings.
“Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.”
“To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.”
