Apocalyptic Literature CharacteristicsWritten by an individual who claims to have a vision of mysteries. This individual will see God's time table. Often portrayed by symbolic animals.The Basics of Daniel 7Four Beasts, the Little Horn & The Son of Man. Daniel has an apocalyptic vision. He sees an ocean and one by one he sees 4 beats emerging from the sea. The 4th beast is the most terrifying. It has 10 horns. An 11th horn began to sprout out of his forehead & began to devour God's people. An angel shows up and is like "Dan, you're looking at a series of Earthly political kingdoms who fight against the saints." The angel falls short of saying which entities are the 4 kingdoms. Dan cries out in terror, "God when are you going to stop this?" and then he sees the throne man & then sees the Son of Man descending in the clouds. The son of Man destroyed the beast, divides the people.Preterist ApproachWhen you are reading the best way to interpret the symbols are to look at the time of the writer. "What was going on during the time this was written?"Futurist ApproachThe Last Days (& we're not there yet.) We can't identify the symbols because we don't know.
