Text: Hebrews 11:7
The story of Noah is referred to throughout the Bible. Indeed, the account of the flood itself is found in ancient records outside the Bible. Noah is remembered throughout history as a model of faith. He is an important example on several counts. First, he finds himself and his family alone in a world that has turned away from God. Second, he both models and proclaims the “righteousness that is in accordance with faith.” Finally, he is the recipient of the Holy Spirit symbolized by the dove that he sends out three times.

This chapter in many respects is a parallel to the previous one. However here we are told what the animal symbols represent. This is a picture of events that did not take place in Daniel’s time but occurred later. We have here a more detailed description of the “little horn” mentioned in Daniel 7:8. Whereas in Daniel chapter 7 we had a dominant image of Christ, the “one like a son of man,” here we have a warning picture of the Antichrist. Again, these visions are pictures of world history. As disturbing as they might appear, they prepare us to live faithfully in the upheavals of our own time.
