What does Daniel 7:22 mean?

Earlier in his vision, Daniel saw God and referred to Him as "the Ancient of Days" (Daniel 7:9–10). He observed Jesus Christ being given power and authority by God the Father (Daniel 7:13–14). Though Daniel's dream meant that God's people would be oppressed and persecuted (Daniel 7:21), this would only be a temporary condition. Revelation 19:19–21 describes the downfall of this leader and his followers.

The world leader symbolized by a "little horn" (Daniel 7:8, 20) of a strange beast will not win ultimate victory in his fight against believers. Revelation 17:14 indicates that the beast and his forces attempt to make war against the Lord Jesus and will be conquered. The ten warring rulers and the beast are kings, but they are no match for Jesus, the "Lord of lords and King of kings." Psalm 2 predicts that the kings of the earth will declare war on God's Son, but God will laugh at their arrogant ambition. He will present the ends of the earth to His Son as His possession (Psalm 2:8), and His Son will destroy the rebellious nations (Psalm 2:9).
