What is the Little Horn in Daniel 7?


“While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering great boasts.” (Daniel 7:8)

The word “little” in “another horn, a little one” occurs only once in the whole Bible – so this is very special.

The standard English concordant word for this word is “bit.” According its usage in English, however, this word “bit” can be used to refer either a tiny amount of something or a large quantity as well, especially when coupled with “digit” in computers. In other words, a digit is indeed small, but it is the “seed of fire” for a complex computer system.

So, do not overlook this “another horn, a little one” that can be small or can be big. In reality, it refers to the Fourth Beast in Daniel’s vision, which is the Fourth Kingdom that must emerge in the world.

The phrase “were pulled out by the roots” is a single word in the original language whose standard English concordance is “stump.” This means that the previous three horns, also the first three beasts that Daniel saw, were not pulled out by the roots but “was stumped” inside the fourth kingdom, becoming tools to be used by Satan for his continued deceiving work.
