Quotes to Consider:

E. J. Young: "... toward the close of the present age the power of the little horn will be manifested. The Antichrist will prevail against the elect of God, becoming ever stronger and stronger. Against him God’s people will not be able to stand. Suddenly however, his power will be cut off, and the Lord Jesus Christ shall return from heaven. The saints who have belonged to the kingdom of the Son of Man (i.e., all who are truly the elect) shall receive this kingdom and possess it eternally. May all who read these lines give diligence to make their calling and election sure" (Daniel, p. 163).

Stuart Olyott: "Daniel 7 means that we are no longer in the dark about the future history of the world. Towards the close of this present age the little horn will appear. The ‘man of sin’ will wage war on God’s people. He will become stronger and stronger, and they will be unable to stand against him. We envisage that organized missionary activity will be crushed, and that the church of God will be broken, destroyed and ruined. Its visible form will disappear" (Dare to Stand Alone, p. 101).
