"...four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation..." (Daniel 7:6; Daniel 8:8; Daniel 11:4)

  • The accurate fulfillment of these features of the vision assures us that what follows will surely come to pass as foretold. (4BC 845)
  • Upon Alexander's death, the Grecian Kingdom fell into fragments, but soon consolidated into four grand divisions. These were represented by the second phase of the goat, when it had four horns which came up in the place of the first, which had been broken. These divisions did not stand in his power. None of them possessed the strength of the original kingdom. These great waymarks of history on which the historian has written volumes, the inspired penman here gives us in sharp outline, with a few strokes of the pen. (US 189)
