The ram and goat fight. The one horned goat wins.
The two horned goat = Kings of Mede and Persia.
Goat = king of Greece = Alexander the great.
The horn breaks off -
His kingdom gets divided among his 4 generals in 323/322BC -
Alexander's war against Persia (Darius III) started in October 1, 334BC (preparations started earlier)
2300 days is 2300 years.
October 1, 334BC + 2300 +1 (no year zero) = October 1, 1967
During the 6-
The 50 soldiers held a Jubilee prayer on the spot.
Their commander, Sholomo Goren blew the shofar (liberation)
Shlomo = Solomon
Goren = Threshing floor
David bough the threshing floor on which king Solomon built the Temple.
In 70AD the Jews lost control over the Temple Mount and nearly 2000 years later they regained it. Time of Gentiles ended?
A mysterious English speaking man joined the soldiers and showed them the exact locations of Altar, Holies of Holies, etc.
He ordered them to rebuild the 3rd Temple on that spot.
Then the person was literally blown away by the wind. (chaff blown away?)
6 years later Arab states led by Egypt and Syria attacked Israel from October 6 to 25, 1973. The Yom Kippur war.
October 1, 1967 -
October 6 to 9, 1973 -
October 10 to 17, 1973 -
October 18, 1973 -
October 19, 1973 -
October 20 to 25, 1973 -
I wonder who the man that was blown away, was.
Dan 8:15 ?
Daniel’s Vision of a Ram and a Goat
1 In the third year of King Belshazzar’s reign, I, Daniel, had a vision, after the one that had already appeared to me. 2 In my vision I saw myself in the citadel of Susa in the province of Elam; in the vision I was beside the Ulai Canal. 3 I looked up, and there before me was a ram with two horns, standing beside the canal, and the horns were long. One of the horns was longer than the other but grew up later. 4 I watched the ram as it charged toward the west and the north and the south. No animal could stand against it, and none could rescue from its power. It did as it pleased and became great.
5 As I was thinking about this, suddenly a goat with a prominent horn between its eyes came from the west, crossing the whole earth without touching the ground. 6 It came toward the two-
9 Out of one of them came another horn, which started small but grew in power to the south and to the east and toward the Beautiful Land. 10 It grew until it reached the host of the heavens, and it threw some of the starry host down to the earth and trampled on them. 11 It set itself up to be as great as the commander of the army of the Lord; it took away the daily sacrifice from the Lord, and his sanctuary was thrown down. 12 Because of rebellion, the Lord’s people[a] and the daily sacrifice were given over to it. It prospered in everything it did, and truth was thrown to the ground.
13 Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to him, “How long will it take for the vision to be fulfilled—the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that causes desolation, the surrender of the sanctuary and the trampling underfoot of the Lord’s people?”
14 He said to me, “It will take 2,300 evenings and mornings; then the sanctuary will be reconsecrated.”
The Interpretation of the Vision
15 While I, Daniel, was watching the vision and trying to understand it, there before me stood one who looked like a man. 16 And I heard a man’s voice from the Ulai calling, “Gabriel, tell this man the meaning of the vision.”
17 As he came near the place where I was standing, I was terrified and fell prostrate. “Son of man,”[b] he said to me, “understand that the vision concerns the time of the end.”
18 While he was speaking to me, I was in a deep sleep, with my face to the ground. Then he touched me and raised me to my feet.
19 He said: “I am going to tell you what will happen later in the time of wrath, because the vision concerns the appointed time of the end.[c] 20 The two-
23 “In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a fierce-
26 “The vision of the evenings and mornings that has been given you is true, but seal up the vision, for it concerns the distant future.”
27 I, Daniel, was worn out. I lay exhausted for several days. Then I got up and went about the king’s business. I was appalled by the vision; it was beyond understanding.
Daniel 8:12 Or rebellion, the armies
Daniel 8:17 The Hebrew phrase ben adam means human being. The phrase son of man is retained as a form of address here because of its possible association with “Son of Man” in the New Testament.
Daniel 8:19 Or because the end will be at the appointed time
