The Little Horn of the Goat
“And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed very great toward the South, and toward the East, and toward the pleasant land.” (Da 8:9 GenevaBible)
The “Little Horn of the Goat”, in Daniel viii. 9, is neither racial nor personal, but potential. It is the symbol of human power consolidated against Israel in the East, and which magnified itself against Jesus, the Prince of the Host; took away the Daily Sacrifice; cast down Jerusalem, the place of its Sanctuary; levelled
“the form of knowledge and of the truth in the Law” (Rom. ii. 20);
and cast down of the host and the stars of Judah to the ground and stamped upon them; destroyed the people of the holy ones, and is yet to stand up against the Prince of Princes at the epoch of its fall, to rise no more for a thousand years.
