The little horn is most definitely not Christ read Daniel 7:21,25.
The little horn is associated with Rome, the Fourth Terrible Beast.
I find it terribly ironic, that you should spend most of your time here in the Preterism forum, digging up threads that are 3 and 4 years old, and yet for someone clearly interested in preterism, you seem to reject any notion of Christ as the King and conqueror. The little horn was associated with the fourth beast, of which Christ is the King. Rome was only a part of the fourth beast. The fourth beast is a picture of the "millennial" kingdom.
The little horn persecutes the saints and is one of the kings of the Fourth Kingdom Beast.
So your posting in a preterism forum, but you do not believe that after Jesus was caught up into heaven and to His Throne, that the kingdoms of this world became His to Rule as King, from his eternal heavenly throne?
You do realize that the images of the beast in Daniel, represents the time that Kingdom was taken from Israel, and given over to Gentile nations to rule. The Lord from heaven ruled first through Nebuchadnezzar and Babylon, then on to Persia, etc... Christ comes during the time of the fourth beast, of which Rome was a part of, but as the Horn of David, the little horn was given the eternal kingdom. If you had taken the time to read through my thread, you might have caught the part were they other horns lasted for a season, but as to the rest, there kingdom was taken from them, and it was given to the little horn, the Horn of David: Jesus Christ.
How much of my thread did you read by the way?
The Saints in Daniel 7:17-28 is the church NOT Old Covenant Israel
The Son of Man was given His Kingdom during the Roman Empire, Daniel 2:44 and Daniel 7:13-14.
His Kingdom comes not with observation - Luke 17:20-21
His Kingdom is not of this world - John 18:36
Flesh and blood can not inherit His Kingdom - 1 Corinthians 15:50 & Matthew 22:30
The increase of His Kingdom shall never cease - Isaiah 9:7
Son Of Man possesses all the Glory or attributes in His Kingdom He had before the earth was conceived (God is a Spirit) - John 17:5
Like I said, I doubt very much that you actual read through my thread that I reference in the link I provided you. There is no debating it, when you refuse to even consider it. That is your loss, not mine.
Jesus is given His EVERLASTING Kingdom upon His ascension to heaven. He is given dominion, and GLORY, and a Kingdom. Daniel 7:13-14
The Holy Spirit was not yet given because Jesus was not yet GLORIFIED. John 7:39
God has raised up Jesus, exalted Him at His right hand and being made Lord, having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, shed forth on Pentecost. Acts 2:32-36
The little horn is evil and related to Rome and its worldly dominion. Not Christ's heavenly dominion.
When evil rests upon the heart, to evil they will seek.
Have you not heard how that the chief cornerstone was also made a stumbling block. And woe unto them unto whom that stone fell. Yeah, he was a stumbling block to the saints, or rather those who presumed themselves to be saints.
First off the little horn is a king of the fourth kingdom, Rome. Daniel 7:24
Secondly, these presumptious false saints shall inherit the heavenly kingdom of Christ? Daniel 7:18,22,27 & Matthew 21:43.
