IRAN = PERSIA = THE RAM
I looked in the vision, and while I was looking I was in the citadel of Susa, which is in the province of Elam; and I looked in the vision and I myself was beside the Ulai Canal. Then I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, a ram which had two horns was standing in front of the canal. Now the two horns were long, but one was longer than the other, with the longer one coming up last. I saw the ram butting westward, northward, and southward, and no other beasts could stand before him nor was there anyone to rescue from his power, but he did as he pleased and magnified himself. - Daniel 8:2-4
And WHEN does this happen?
“Son of man, understand that the vision pertains to the time of the end.” - Daniel 8:17
"it pertains to the appointed time of the end." - Daniel 8:19
"it pertains to many days in the future.” - Daniel 8:26
The ENTIRE prophecy, not just part of it! Not the days of Alexander the Great or Antiochus in ancient history, but NOW!
