Signs of the Times in 2020

This article will show the connections between the Globalist New World Order pushed by the United Nations and the events occurring in America today as relates to the Marxist violence in the streets of America and the control mechanisms being brought into place under the pretext of Covid-19.

I have endeavored as much as possible to let the globalist and those who support them speak for themselves by providing links various articles and videos from the sources themselves. I recommend that people read the source material itself to get the full picture.

This article contains the following sections:

  • Globalists
  • The Great Reset
  • The "D10"
  • The Pretext of Covid-19
  • What is Marxism
  • Marxist Organizations
  • Funding Sources
  • Democratic Party Support for BLM
  • Progressive Christianity
  • Concluding Thoughts

Globalists

Globalism is defined by Dictionary.com as: "the attitude or policy of placing the interests of the entire world above those of individual nations." Those with such interested are for the most part centralized in the United Nations, along with supporting organizations such as the World Economic Forum.

In my article on "The Times of the Gentiles", globalism corresponds to the 3rd phase of the 4th beast, which is the "One World Government" phase. We are seeing this come together in front of our eyes.

Joe Biden IS a supporter of globalism.

Agenda 21

https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/outcomedocuments/agenda21

There is nothing mysterious about Agenda 21. It has been around for a long time. The Commission on Sustainable Development was created in December 1992 by the United Nations, and it was "strongly reaffirmed" at the "World Summit on Sustainable Development in 2002.

The Agenda 21 document in it's entirety can be downloaded as a PDF at: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/content/documents/Agenda21.pdf

President Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris Climate Accord Agreement in Nov of 2019 due to it's unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses and taxpayers.

Agenda 2030

https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/post2015/transformingourworld

Agenda 2030 was decided on by Heads of State and Government at the UN in September 2015. They are a new set of sustainability goals. They include things such as resolutions to end poverty, hunger, combat inequality, build peaceful inclusive societies, promote gender equality, ensure the lasting protection of the planet and its natural resources, sustained economic growth, shared prosperity, and decent work for all.

This plan seeks to address 17 goals, which can be found here:

He called for a “humanist and ecological conversion that puts an end to the idolatry of money and places human life and dignity at the center.” The new order will end globalization’s “extravagant luxuries, its disproportionate profits for just a few.”"

Conservative Commentary

UN Agenda 2030 - A Recipie for Global Socialism
https://thenewamerican.com/un-agenda-2030-a-recipe-for-global-socialism/

Quote: "Officially dubbed “Agenda 2030,” the UN plot, as its full title suggests, is aimed at “transforming” the world. The program is a follow-up to the last 15-year UN plan, the defunct “Millennium Development Goals,” or MDGs. It also dovetails nicely with the deeply controversial UN Agenda 21, even including much of the same rhetoric and agenda. But the combined Agenda 2030 goals for achieving what is euphemistically called “sustainable development” represent previous UN plans on steroids — deeper, more radical, more draconian, and more expensive."

The Great Reset

Quote: "Taking advantage of the present crises to bring about change "within the framework of a sustainable future". "And the time to act... is now."

The Great Reset is a plan by which the globalist hope to accelerate the roll out of globalism in America and the planet at large. They see an opportunity in the current dual crisis of civil unrest being fomented by Marxism, and the panic created by Covid-19.

The Green New Deal

The "Global Green New Deal" is not just a resolution promoted by Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Alexandria. As will be shown, it is a pillar of the globalist agenda, and Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Alexandria is simply the latest to bring it to the foreground and promote it.

The Resolution
H.Res.109 - Recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez Alexandria, introduced in Feb 2019.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-resolution/109/text

This bill for all intents and purposes is a copy of the UN Agenda 2030. It tackles a great many of the same issues with the same solutions and the same dates, and it's goal is to not only get the United States in line with the Paris accord again, but in line with all 17 goals of Agenda 2030.

One has to wonder if Rep. Occasio-Cortez is not perfectly aware of the name of this bill, in the creation of a "Green New Deal", when that is the same name that a report used by the United Nations Sustainable Development in 2009 here:

A Global Green New Deal
https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/index.php?page=view&type=400&nr=670&menu=1515

Note that the United Nations promoted "A Global Green New Deal" in 2009, 10 years before Rep. Occasio-Cortez brought the Democratic Party's version. It is telling that the name has not changed. It is clear that globalist infiltration of the Democratic Party is significant.

And here is the PDF file of "A Global Green New Deal":

The Leap’s mission is to make system change irresistible and bring to life the world we deserve. The Leap believes the best way to tackle climate catastrophe is by building movement power and popular support for a more just world.

War on Want’s mission is to fight against the root causes of poverty and human rights violation, as part of the worldwide movement for global justice."

The D10

The "D10" is an interesting development, as the "D10" appears to be a financial organization that seeks to organize into 10 regions around the globe. I find this to be an interesting development because the 4th Stage of the 4th Beast comes about after a new world order is established, and is a 10 nation confederacy, I.E. the 10 Horns.

See "Times of the Gentiles" - http://www.tojesusbeallglory.com/2020/09/the-times-of-gentiles.html

Note what Daniel has to say in Dan 7:24 "The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings." The "10 horns" come from "this Kingdom", which is referring back to vs. 23 the 3rd stage of the 4th beast which will "devour the whole earth", or the new world order. After the new world order is established, the 10 kings arise, then after that, the little horn arises.

Could the "D10" be a form of the 10 nation confederacy? We don't know, we will have to watch and see.

Time for the D10 to Replace the G7
https://www.aspistrategist.org.au/time-for-the-d10-to-replace-the-g7/

"On 29 May, The Times reported that the British government was set to propose reforms to the G7, an organization established in 1975 to coordinate policy between the world’s largest and most advanced market economies. The UK proposal involves creating a new coalition of democracies, based on the Group of 7, with the addition of Australia, India and South Korea. It would be known as the ‘Democratic 10’, or ‘D10’ for short."

"And what would the D10 do? For Britain, the D10 is, in part, about ‘decoupling’ from China. It is about creating a new coalition to provide an alternative to China’s attempts to dominate world markets and set international standards, particularly in relation to next-generation technologies such as 5G."

"The D10 should be embraced. It could start to consolidate the world’s leading democracies’ ability to uphold their autonomy and push back against authoritarian revisionists. It would help ensure that the Indo-Pacific of the 21st century remains free and open and does not become controlled and closed."

Forget the G-7, Build the D-10
https://foreignpolicy.com/2020/06/10/g7-d10-democracy-trump-europe/

"British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been actively considering the right idea: consolidating a new D-10 group of 10 leading democracies (the current G-7 members, plus South Korea, India, and Australia) for addressing both 5G mobile communications and vulnerable supply chains. While the idea behind a D-10 is not a novel one—a group organized by the Atlantic Council think tank in Washington has been promoting it for years with regular working-level meetings between officials—it has a new impetus amid the coronavirus pandemic."

"The United Kingdom’s D-10 is the right size and shape: neither too big, which reduces coherence; nor too small, covering only the Cold War West. The D-10 is not an anti-China alliance. Instead, by narrowly focusing on the two defensive issues all democratic powers broadly agree they have a problem and cannot solve on their own—5G and critical supply chains—it is a platform that could relatively quickly get off the ground."

"FOR the past four years senior officials from a group of leading democracies, calling themselves the “D10”, have quietly been meeting once or twice a year to discuss how to co-ordinate strategies to advance the liberal world order."

"Shortly after news broke that the UK government was drawing up plans to force a full phase-out of Huawei from Britain's 5G networks by 2023, it was reported Friday that London was proposing a "D10" club of democratic partners that includes the G7 nations, Australia, South Korea and India to reduce dependence on Huawei 5G technology.

The Pretext of Covid-19

This area is rapidly changing as software developers rush to put the final touches on virus tracking apps. Some possible players who's apps will be selected to track Covid-19 threats and vaccines are listed below.

One thing to consider is that we already use apps to track our health. I personally have an app called "Follow My Health". This app is updated each time I have lab results or a doctor visit, and records the details of that visit for me. I can refer to it as needed. The capability to track Covid-19 is already present. Apps like "Follow My Health" need only minor changes to add Covid tracking function.

Included in this list are security applications. Those that are developing these tracking applications recognize that being able to prove and protect identity is critical to the success of the program. Those updating the apps such as the "Follow My Health" app will be certified and use secure applications to protect their certifications from misuse.

This technology is not new, there is no rush to develop new applications from scratch when so many already exist in a lessor form, not including Covid-19 for example. Rather than developing new applications, only modification of existing ones is required.

"A biometric digital identity platform that “evolves just as you evolve” is set to be introduced in “low-income, remote communities” in West Africa thanks to a public-private partnership between the Bill Gates-backed GAVI vaccine alliance, Mastercard and the AI-powered “identity authentication” company, Trust Stamp.

The program, which was first launched in late 2018, will see Trust Stamp’s digital identity platform integrated into the GAVI-Mastercard “Wellness Pass,” a digital vaccination record and identity system that is also linked to Mastercard’s click-to-play system that powered by its AI and machine learning technology called NuData. Mastercard, in addition to professing its commitment to promoting “centralized record keeping of childhood immunization” also describes itself as a leader toward a “World Beyond Cash,” and its partnership with GAVI marks a novel approach towards linking a biometric digital identity system, vaccination records, and a payment system into a single cohesive platform. The effort, since its launch nearly two years ago, has been funded via $3.8 million in GAVI donor funds in addition to a matched donation of the same amount by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation."

Back to work? Not without a check-in app, immunity passport

"BANGKOK (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - To go anywhere in Singapore these days, Joni Sng needs mobile phone apps and other technologies: a QR code to enter shops, a digital map to see how crowded a mall or park is, and a tracker to show if she was near someone infected with the coronavirus.

For the roughly 5.6 million people in Singapore, these actions are routine as the government eases restrictions placed to contain the spread of the disease.

“The apps are quite convenient and easy to use, and I feel a little safer knowing that everyone else is also using them,” Sng, a videographer, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

“It has become very natural to click on the apps while going somewhere, just like wearing a mask,” she said."

"China’s health code app was among the first off the block, showing whether a user is symptom-free in order to take the subway or check into a hotel.

In India, authorities have made the contact-tracing mobile app Aarogya Setu mandatory for everything from taking public transit and boarding flights to going to work."

Singapore to make travellers wear electronic tags to enforce quarantine
https://news.trust.org/item/20200803034958-vm6ei

"SINGAPORE, Aug 3 (Reuters) - Singapore will make some incoming travellers wear an electronic monitoring device to ensure that they comply with coronavirus quarantines as the city-state gradually reopens its borders, authorities said on Monday.

From August 11, the devices will be given to incoming travellers, including citizens and residents, from a select group of countries who will be allowed to isolate at home rather than at a state-appointed facility."

"Hong Kong in March introduced a scheme for incoming travellers to use a slim electronic wristband, similar to a tag worn by hospital patients, to enforce quarantines for arriving passengers. South Korea has also used such wristbands connected to smartphone apps for those who violate quarantine."

Opinion: The potential abuses of a coronavirus ‘health passport’ are downright frightening
https://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-potential-abuses-of-a-coronavirus-health-passport-are-downright-frightening-2020-08-03?mod=home-page

"In 2017, Chinese martial artist Xu Xiaodong, aka “Mad Dog,” became well-known after exposing and defeating several martial-arts “masters” in the ring. His opponents claimed to have supernatural powers, and the fraudulence and hypocrisy were too much for Xu to take.

Afterward, he was accused of denigrating Chinese culture and, as a result, his social-credit rating (SCR) was slashed.

The SCR is an invention of the Chinese Communist Party to keep citizens in check. It rewards obedience and conformity. Xu’s rating was downgraded to a point where he couldn’t rent, own property, stay in certain hotels or travel by train or plane. After so much socio-economic pressure, Xu wound up apologizing to the fraudsters and agreed to pay a hefty fine. Soon enough, the government decided to lift the restrictions. "

"The advent of COVID-19 accelerated that trend. An official app assigns a color code to each citizen — red for supervised quarantine, yellow for self-quarantine and green for unrestricted movement. That enables the People’s Republic of China (PRC) to restrict the movement and financial activity of its citizens."

"Such tracking apps would never take hold in the West, right? Fifteen Western countries, including the U.S., are taking the first step. Where could it lead?

COVI-PASS is a “health passport” developed by a British cyber security company.

Let me know if any of this seems familiar:

“The COVI-PASS ... will work using a color system of green, amber, and red to indicate whether the individual has tested positive or negative for COVID-19 and relevant health information.”

The company says COVI-PASS offers “its own medical certificate” or “third-party medical certificates” issued by so-called authorized health entities.

The idea with these health passports is that the movement and access to services should, in the name of safety, be limited for those the app designates as positive. The app will be given authority to whitelist and blacklist individuals based on “its own medical certificate” data and “third-party medical certificates.”"

"The Commons Project website presents CommonPass like this:

For global travel and trade to return to pre-pandemic levels, travelers will need a secure and verifiable way to document their health status as they travel and cross borders.  Countries will need to be able to trust that a traveller’s record of a COVID PCR test or vaccination administered in another country is valid. Countries will also need the flexibility to update their health screening entry requirements as the pandemic evolves and science progresses.  Airlines, airports and other travel industry stakeholders will need the same.

The Commons Project together with The World Economic Forum is working to initiate the CommonPass framework to address those challenges. TN Editor"

"Even after the COVID-19 pandemic ends, these ‘health passports’ could be used to offer evidence that a traveler has been vaccinated – not just for COVID-19, but for any other diseases."

"Immunity Certificates" Are Coming - COVID-Survivors To Get 'Special Passports' Enabling Return To 'Normalcy'
https://www.zerohedge.com/health/immunity-certificates-are-coming-covid-survivors-get-special-passports-enabling-return

"Some of the first talks of this has originated in the UK. The government could roll out immunity passports to Britons who have already contracted and recovered from the virus so they can reenter the economy, reported The New York Times.

"(An immunity certificate) is an important thing that we will be doing and are looking at but it's too early in the science of the immunity that comes from having had the disease," health minister Matt Hancock said at a Downing Street press conference.

"It's too early in that science to be able to put clarity around that. I wish that we could but the reason that we can't is because the science isn't yet advanced enough," Hancock said.

UK Health Secretary: "We are looking at an immunity certificate. How people who have had the disease, have got the antibodies, and therefore have immunity, can show that, and so get back... as much as possible to normal life." pic.twitter.com/SVLV8U2YwG   - The Hill (@thehill) April 3, 2020

Prime Minister Boris Johnson's spokesman said Britain was completing due diligence in how feasible immunity passports would be.

Hancock said a blood test was in development that could test whether people already had the virus or had the antibodies that would make them resistant to the infection.

In Germany, researchers are preparing a study that would see if people already immune to the virus could reenter the workforce and be granted immunity passports.

In Italy, the conservative president of the northeastern Veneto region has proposed an immunity passport for people who possess antibodies that show they are resistant to the virus.

The former prime minister, Matteo Renzi, has called it a "Covid Pass" for the uninfected who can return to their normal lives.

Immunity passports and "intermittent lockdowns" could become a reality in the months, quarters, or at least in the next several years – as the virus could be sticking around a lot longer than many have anticipated.

Talk of these special passports surfaced in American politics last week when House Democratic Caucus Chairman Mike Stewart called on Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee to implement an "Immunity Certificate" for first responders and healthcare professionals. "

Patent 2020/060606

Bill Gates, Vaccinations, Microchips, And Patent 060606
https://orientalreview.org/2020/04/29/bill-gates-vaccinations-microchips-and-patent-060606/

"The case described below relates to an officially documented fact, although there is something rather biblical about it. Patent WO/2020/060606 was registered on 26 March 2020. The patent application was filed by Microsoft Technology Licensing, LLC, headed by Bill Gates, back on 20 June 2019, and, on 22 April 2020, the patent was granted international status. The title of the patent is “Cryptocurrency system using body activity data”.

So, what is this invention that the people at Microsoft decided to patent? The abstract of the patent application online states: “Human body activity associated with a task provided to a user may be used in a mining process of a cryptocurrency system. A server may provide a task to a device of a user which is communicatively coupled to the server. A sensor communicatively coupled to or comprised in the device of the user may sense body activity of the user. Body activity data may be generated based on the sensed body activity of the user. The cryptocurrency system communicatively coupled to the device of the user may verify if the body activity data satisfies one or more conditions set by the cryptocurrency system, and award cryptocurrency to the user whose body activity data is verified.”

In other words, a chip will be inserted into the body that monitors a person’s daily physical activity in return for cryptocurrency. If conditions are met, then the person receives certain bonuses that can be spent on something."

What Is 'Contact Tracing' and How Does it Work?
https://www.webmd.com/lung/news/20200504/what-is-contact-tracing-and-how-does-it-work#1

"Contact tracing "is the best tool we have to manage this in an ongoing way and allow our economy to open up again," said Watson, who recently co-authored a major report on public health's ongoing role in reopening America."

"It means that as soon as you know of a person who may have a virus or have tested presumptive positive, you work immediately to first isolate that person so they do not spread it further," Freeman said. "You keep them away from other people, and then you work with that person directly to understand who they have come in contact with."

"It also might involve a business sending out a notice that people diagnosed with COVID-19 had been there. If someone visited the business on certain days, they would be asked to self-quarantine and reach out to either their doctor or a public health official."

"People potentially exposed to COVID-19 are currently asked to self-quarantine for 14 days and undergo testing for the virus, experts said.

That raises another time-consuming aspect of contact tracing -- caring for the people identified as potentially infected.

People who self-isolate at home need to be supported, Freeman said. They need people bringing them groceries and supplies, and access to medical care if needed.

There should also be places available -- empty hotels or college dorms, for instance -- to place people who can't quarantine at home without putting their family members at risk of infection, Freeman added."

I've heard about contact tracing being done during the COVID-19 pandemic. What is it and how does it work?
https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/coronavirus/expert-answers/covid-19-contact-tracing/faq-20488330

"The health department asks each person with COVID-19 about people with whom they've recently had close contact. Health department officials then quickly (usually within 24 hours) alert people who are close contacts that they may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus. Officials don't share the name of the person who may have exposed them. This makes the contact tracing process anonymous and confidential."

Stan's Thoughts

The global elites clearly see an opportunity here to bring about rapid and substantial change. Covid-19 has moved many people to a place where they are eager for change of the sort that will provide a single authoritative voice to address issues like Covid-19 and civil unrest. The globalist recognize that these sorts of crisis are valuable world view changers that work in their favor.

The United States, particularly under President Donald Trump has proven to be a thorn in the globalist side. We pull out of accords and agreements that are pet globalist projects, such as climate change (Paris Agreement) and Agenda 2030 at large causing delays in the fulfillment of globalist goals. The globalist recognize that America is standing in the way, and it must be moved in order for their programs to proceed in a timely fashion.

It is no secret that the globalist exist today, and ultimately they would like to bring about a New World Order. Reading the 17 goals of Agenda 2030 cannot help but lead one to see that they are seeking to consolidate global control over time to coordinate these global plans.

A favorable condition for American capitulation to the globalist would be in a weakened state brought about by strong division, to the point of civil war if that is possible, and a favorable government that is inclined to share power with globalist entities. Enter Marxism.
The civil unrest going on today is purely a fabrication constructed by a communist scheme intent on using militant Marxist to bring strong division to America and weaken it. It is entirely likely that the people today leading the Marxist revolution are unaware of the powerful globalist elites that are feeding them. They are being fed lies and money. To this writer, today's Marxist acting out in the streets are nothing more than puppets in the hands of the global elites.

What is Marxism?

Marxism is defined in Dictionary.com as: "the system of economic and political thought developed by Karl Marx, along with Friedrich Engels, especially the doctrine that the state throughout history has been a device for the exploitation of the masses by a dominant class, that class struggle has been the main agency of historical change, and that the capitalist system, containing from the first the seeds of its own decay, will inevitably, after the period of the dictatorship of the proletariat, be superseded by a socialist order and a classless society."

Marxist accomplish their goals by finding conflicting values in groups of people and rubbing those points of contention raw until civil unrest or war breaks out, allowing the powers driving the division to enact radical social change. Today, that point of contention is primarily racism, although ideologies driving opinions about abortion, LGBTQ rights, climate change, immigration, the wall, wearing of masks are all fair game and present and compounding issues.

Is Marxism Compatible with the Christian Faith?
https://www.gotquestions.org/Marxism-Christian.html

“Marxism is, at heart, an atheistic philosophy with no room for belief in God. Karl Marx himself was clear on this point: “The first requisite of the happiness of the people is the abolition of religion” (“A Criticism of the Hegelian Philosophy of Right,” 1844). Christianity, of course, is rooted in theism and is all about God. In the Marxist model, the state becomes the provider, sustainer, protector, and lawgiver for every citizen; in short, the state is viewed as God. Christians always appeal to a higher authority—the God of the universe—and Marxist governments don’t like the idea of there being any authority higher than themselves.”

Marxist Organizations

While "Black Lives Matter" (BLM) is the organization that we most hear about, it is important to note that BLM has joined forces with many other similarly minded groups. Some of those groups are listed below:

Black Lives Matter

https://blacklivesmatter.com

Explainer: What does "Black Lives Matter" Believe?
https://blog.acton.org/archives/116471-explainer-what-does-black-lives-matter-believe.html?fbclid=IwAR3BuJcmp43nQi0Aow4Xp_nXom50G56awsSstE_-neZh560IBaSXyDt6Ctw

"To present their “demands” more completely, the Black Lives Matter Network joined dozens of like-minded groups to found the Movement for Black Lives, sit on its “united front,” and adopt its policy platform."

Reparations through racial socialism

“We demand reparations for past and continuing harms,” including both “corporate and government reparations” for a litany of ills that include “food apartheid” and “racialized capitalism.” Government reparations will take “the form” of “a guaranteed minimum livable income for all Black people.”

Replacing education with intersectional / multicultural studies

"Under the M4BL/BLM manifesto, public schools would be transformed from centers of education to the delivery points of intersectional/multicultural studies and comprehensive welfare programs, including free abortion for minors (without specifying a minimum age)"

Defunding police and ending prisons

"BLM’s best-known demand is to “defund the police.” M4BL also proposes an “end” to arrests of any black students, and “an end to all jails, detention centers, youth facilities and prisons as we know them.”

Dismantling the family

"Black Lives Matter endorses two contradictory policies: “We make our spaces family-friendly,” it states. It then looks forward to the destruction of the traditional family:

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable."

Start a "global liberation movement" to overthrow capitalism

“The interlinked systems of white supremacy, imperialism, capitalism and patriarchy shape the violence we face,” the M4BL/BLM platform states. “As oppressed people living in the US, the belly of global empire, we are in a critical position to build the necessary connections for a global liberation movement. Until we are able to overturn US imperialism, capitalism and white supremacy, our brothers and sisters around the world will continue to live in chains.”

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Describes Herself as "Trained Marxist"
https://nypost.com/2020/06/25/blm-co-founder-describes-herself-as-trained-marxist/

"Cullors, 36, was the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview, Breitbart News reported.

“The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers,” she said, referring to BLM co-founder Alicia Garza.

“We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” Cullors added in the interview with Jared Ball of The Real News Network."

The Movement for Black Lives

https://m4bl.org/

The Breath Act
https://breatheact.org/learn-more/

"This visionary bill divests our taxpayer dollars from brutal and discriminatory policing and invests in a new vision of public safety—a vision that answers the call to defund the police and allows all communities to finally BREATHE free.

We are rising up against all the ways that the criminal-legal system has harmed and failed to protect Black communities. The current moment requires a solution that fundamentally shifts how we envision community-care and invest in our society. History is clear that we cannot achieve genuine safety and liberation until we abandon police, prisons, and all punishment paradigms."

Who we are - We are abolitionist

"We believe that prisons, police and all other institutions that inflict violence on Black people must be abolished and replaced by institutions that value and affirm the flourishing of Black lives."

Who we are - We are anti-capitalist

"We believe and understand that Black people will never achieve liberation under the current global racialized capitalist system. "

Burning Down the American Plantation: An Interview With the Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement
https://truthout.org/articles/burning-down-the-american-plantation-an-interview-with-the-revolutionary-abolitionist-movement/

"We wanted to tie abolitionism to revolutionary goals, because to achieve the abolition of modern slavery, we have to completely restructure our society institutionally and psychologically. It is impossible to end prisons, structural oppression, institutionalized white supremacy without also abolishing the judicial system, police, and the state itself. Our proposal is not just a negation, but a proposal for how to construct relationships, and therefore social organization in a way that these things can no longer exist."

Socialist Demands for the COVID-19 Crisis
https://www.workers.org/2020/03/46959/

"As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread, the government’s response to the crisis has been criminally negligent, while capitalists would rather risk workers’ health than stop production for profit."

"As the ruling class shows itself to be incapable of addressing the crisis, how can we, as working class and oppressed people, organize to meet our needs? What demands can we put forward in response?"

"Workers World Party proposes the following 10 demands – which are a work in progress based on the fluidity of the crisis – as an initial socialist response to COVID-19:

  1. Free healthcare for all
  2. Nationalize the healthcare system under community control. Build emergency hospitals
  3. Full pay, benefits and guaranteed income for all
  4. Food, housing, medical supplies, and utilities including internet for all
  5. Suspend rent, evictions, mortgages, utility shutoffs and ALL debt
  6. Prioritize resources for communities of color, migrants, LGBTQ2+ people, seniors, youth, people with disabilities
  7. Empty prisons and detention centers. Shut down ICE. End racist attacks
  8. Community control. No cops. No military
  9. $2 Trillion to the workers, not the banks
  10. End U.S. wars, sanctions, and environmental destruction"

Group Led by BLM Founder Is “Fiscally Supported” by Pro-Chinese Communist Organization
https://thenewamerican.com/group-led-by-blm-founder-is-fiscally-supported-by-pro-chinese-communist-organization/

"If you needed any more evidence that Black Lives Matter is, at its heart, a Marxist sub-group intent on overthrowing capitalism and the American way of life, consider the following: The “advocacy group” Black Futures Lab, which lists BLM founder Alicia Garza as its principal, is “fiscally supported” by the pro-Communist Chinese group Chinese Progressive Association (CPA)."

These are the major brands donating to the Black Lives Matter movement
https://www.cnet.com/how-to/companies-donating-black-lives-matter/

"Many of the large tech companies in the US have donated substantial sums to the cause. Google has committed $12 million, while both Facebook and Amazon are donating $10 million to various groups that fight against racial injustice. Apple is pledging a whopping $100 million for a new Racial Equity and Justice Initiative that will "challenge the systemic barriers to opportunity and dignity that exist for communities of color, and particularly for the black community," according to Apple CEO Tim Cook."

Walmart

"Walmart announced that it will contribute $100 million over five years to create a new center for racial equity. In an email to Walmart employees, CEO Doug McMillan said the center "will seek to advance economic opportunity and healthier living, including issues surrounding the social determinants of health, strengthening workforce development and related educational systems, and support criminal justice reform with an emphasis on examining barriers to opportunity faced by those exiting the system."

Target

"Target announced a $10 million commitment in an effort to advance social justice through supporting partners like the National Urban League and the African American Leadership Forum. The brand also committed 10,000 hours of pro-bono consulting for small business in the Twin Cities that are black-owned or owned by people of color."

Home Depot

"Home Depot CEO Craig Menear announced a $1 million donation to the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law in a statement released on the company website. In the letter, Menear also said the company will work for change internally, "I have begun working with our associate resource groups to facilitate internal town halls to share experiences and create better understanding among us all," he said. "We are dedicated to supporting you and our communities during this time with the goal of emerging more united than ever."

EA Games

"EA announced a $1 million donation to improve racial equality, starting with donations to the Equal Justice Initiative and the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund. The brand says it will donate to more partners in the future."

Square Enix

"In a tweet earlier this month, Square Enix announced a $250,000 donation in addition to matching employee donations to the Black Lives Matter organization and other charities."

Ubisoft

"Gaming company Ubisoft tweeted that the company will donate $100,000 to the NAACP and Black Lives Matter organization and encouraged others to donate."

Etsy

"Etsy announced a total contribution of $1 million in an Instagram post. The company is donating $500,000 to the Equal Justice Initiative and $500,000 to the Borealis Philanthropy's Black-Led Movement Fund and will be matching employee donations."

Open Society Foundation (George Soros)

George Soros's Foundation Pours $220 Million Into Racial Equality Push
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/13/us/politics/george-soros-racial-justice-organizations.html

"The Open Society Foundations, the philanthropic group founded by the business magnate George Soros, announced on Monday that it was investing $220 million in efforts to achieve racial equality in America, a huge financial undertaking that will support several Black-led racial justice groups for years to come.

The initiative, which comes amid national protests for racial equality and calls for police reform ignited by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, will immediately reshape the landscape of Black political and civil rights organizations, and signals the extent to which race and identity have become the explicit focal point of American politics in recent years, with no sign of receding."

Yes, George Soros Sent Mondy to Fund the Riots - and So Did Taxpayers
https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/tyler-o-neil/2016/08/19/hacked-soros-documents-reveal-some-big-dark-money-surprises-n47598

"An OSF board meeting agenda in October 2015 revealed that the foundation board approved $650,000 “in Opportunities Fund support to invest in tecnical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.”

The foundation said the movement needed more organizational muscle. “While these emerging groups had mobilized communities with a force that captured the nation’s conscience, behind the scenes, they had invested much less time in reflection, strategy development, and future planning.”"

Hewlet Foundation
https://hewlett.org/

At the time of this writing, Hewlet had a large picture of a street painted with "Black Lives Matter", with the following caption:

"New steps to address systemic racism

Commitments include $18 million in funds this year dedicated to combating systemic racism, a new 10-year $150 million racial justice initiative, and intentional efforts to add a racial justice lens to our ongoing programs and operations."

Democratic Party Support for BLM

Organizations supporting the destruction of capitalism, democracy and the rule of law are themselves supported by political support by various members of the Democratic Party as well as by liberal's in general. Unfortunately, support for BLM is also found among some who would support equality in general, but are ignorant of the methods and goals of Marxist to bring it about.

The Black Lives Matter protests preview the politics of a diversifying America
https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/23/politics/black-lives-matter-support-impact/index.html

"After years in which polls showed that the Black Lives Matter movement operated with limited support and even awareness beyond African Americans, surveys since the death of George Floyd last month in Minneapolis show it now also has majority support among Hispanics, Asian Americans and even Whites.

This widening circle of concern has advanced the furthest among younger adults, who now express preponderantly favorable views about the movement and have also provided a majority of those who have protested, according to one recent study."

"Attitudes toward the Black Lives Movement itself show the same progression. In 2016, Pew found that 18% of Americans described themselves as strong supporters of the movement, while another 26% said they supported it "somewhat." In Pew polling earlier this month, those numbers had jumped to 38% and 29% respectively. The growth, according to detailed results provided by Pew, occurred across racial lines: The percentage who described themselves either as strongly or somewhat supporting the movement rose from 40% to 61% among Whites, from 33% to 78% among Hispanics and from 65% to 86% among Blacks. (Figures for Asian Americans were not released in the earlier poll but 75% identified as supporters in the new one.)"

Amid Protests, Majorities Across Racial and Ethnic Groups Express Support for the Black Lives Matter Movement
https://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2020/06/12/amid-protests-majorities-across-racial-and-ethnic-groups-express-support-for-the-black-lives-matter-movement/

"The Black Lives Matter movement, which is back in the headlines amid the nationwide protests, receives wide support. Two-thirds of U.S. adults say they support the movement, with 38% saying they strongly support it. This sentiment is particularly strong among black Americans, although majorities of white (60%), Hispanic (77%) and Asian (75%) Americans express at least some support."

Kamala Harris praises BLM, says ongoing protests are 'essential' for change in US
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/kamala-harris-blm-protests-louisville

"She added that protests were "necessary" as "the people's voices must be heard, and it is often the people who must speak to get their government to do what it is supposed to do, but may not do naturally unless the people speak loudly -- and obviously peacefully."

Harris also praised the "brilliance" and "impact" of "Black Lives Matter," which has received media praise but also come under fire for promoting left-wing stances like opposing the nuclear family. "I actually believe that 'Black Lives Matter' has been the most significant agent for change within the criminal justice system," she said."

Kamala Harris Praises ‘Brilliance’ of Black Lives Matter and Its Marxist Founders
https://www.breitbart.com/2020-election/2020/09/25/kamala-harris-praises-brilliance-of-black-lives-matter-and-its-marxist-founders/

"Harris spoke about the “brilliance and the impact of Black Lives Matter,” and the “brilliance” of its founders “in conceiving it,” and explained:

I actually believe as a former prosecutor, that Black Lives Matter has been the most significant agent for change within the criminal justice system. Because it has been a counter force to the force within the system that is so grounded in status quo and in its own traditions, many of which have been harmful, and have been discriminatory in the way they’ve been enforced"

What helps non-black people support Black Lives Matter? A signal from someone in their own ethnic group.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/06/18/what-helps-non-black-people-support-black-lives-matter-signal-someone-their-own-ethnic-group/

"White NFL quarterbacks like Carson Wentz and Joe Burrow are among the many sports stars offering public statements of support. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell — who in 2017 said NFL players must stand for the national anthem, and could not take a knee in protest — apologized for not listening to black players’ concerns earlier. Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah became the first Republican senator to join in the BLM protests in Washington.

Many whites are protesting with Black Lives Matter. How far will their support go?

White and Latinx celebrities such as Anna Kendrick and Selena Gomez have demonstrated their support for the Black Lives Matter movement on social media and through their attendance at local protests. In a similar vein, two Asian Americans started a petition to demonstrate solidarity between the Asian American and black communities in response to the recent spate of high-profile shootings of African Americans. A recent Pew survey showed majorities across white, Asian and Hispanic ethnic groups in America have expressed support for the Black Lives Matter protests."

Concerned parents clash with BLM activists over political movement being taught in some Florida schools
https://www.bizpacreview.com/2020/10/09/concerned-parents-clash-with-blm-activists-over-political-movement-being-taught-in-some-florida-schools-982539

"There was a clash of ideologies this week in Sarasota County, Florida, as frustrated parents confronted the local school board about teaching the oft-violent Black Lives Matter political movement as part of the curriculum.

The parents were part of a mom’s group, Concerned Parents of Sarasota Schools, and wore bright red t-shirts as a sign of solidarity, WFLA reported. Some of them faced off against Black Lives Matter activists in the parking lot during a Tuesday night Sarasota County School Board meeting."

Is 'Defund the Police' a massive political mistake?
https://www.cnn.com/2020/06/08/politics/defund-the-police-blm/index.html

"(CNN)On Friday, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser had a massive mural reading "Black Lives Matter" in block yellow lettering painted on 16th Street near the White House. The next day, activists painted another message -- in that exact same yellow lettering -- on the same street. It read: "Defund the Police."

Amid the ongoing protests in the wake of the death of George Floyd, calls to defund the police have grown increasingly loud -- particularly among the activists who are taking to the streets to urge politicians to act."

Progressive Christianity

It addition to liberal and Democratic Party support for BLM, support is also coming from progressive Christianity. Progressive Christianity is elevating felt needs over spiritual needs through their shifting focus to social justice and social programs.

Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden

https://www.prolifeevangelicalsforbiden.com/

"Many things that good political decisions could change destroy persons created in the image of God and violate the sanctity of human life. Poverty kills millions every year. So does lack of healthcare and smoking. Racism kills. Unless we quickly make major changes, devastating climate change will kill tens of millions. Poverty, lack of accessible health care services, smoking, racism and climate change are all pro-life issues. As the National Association of Evangelicals’ official public policy document (FOR THE HEALTH OF THE NATION) insists, “Faithful evangelical civic engagement and witness must champion a biblically balanced agenda.“  Therefore we oppose “one issue” political thinking because it lacks biblical balance.

Knowing that the most common reason women give for abortion is the financial difficulty of another child, we appreciate a number of Democratic proposals that would significantly alleviate that financial burden: accessible health services for all citizens, affordable childcare, a minimum wage that lifts workers out of poverty.

For these reasons, we believe that on balance, Joe Biden’s policies are more consistent with the biblically shaped ethic of life than those of Donald Trump. Therefore, even as we continue to urge different policies on abortion, we urge evangelicals to elect Joe Biden as president."

Note: It is this author's opinion that as bad as poverty and a lack of healthcare may be, these threats are just that, threats that may or may not come to pass. Children MAY die. However, abortion is a certainty, children WILL die. It is difficult to justify voting for a certainty that children will die because of the possibility that children may die. The position that we should vote for Biden, a man who supports abortion, because he may improve the quality of life for those that are not aborted makes no sense. There is no justification for the killing of children due to potential poor quality of life issues.

But there is more to this. Evangelicals for Biden also are supporting "racism", which in today's context means they believe that whites have "white privilege" and need to repent for it. Additionally they clearly believe that the planet is threatened by anthropomorphic global warming. Each of these "threats" are also justification for voting for a man who will kill children and allow men into women's private spaces and sports. They are justifying putting a child killer into office to solve what are compared to murder, the lessor threats of racism and global warming. This is just mind boggling to this Christian.


Vote Common Good
https://www.votecommongood.com/what-and-why/

"We believe that many Christian voters recognize that their faith calls them to oppose the policies and approaches of the Trump administration. For many of these voters, their primary commitment is not to switch parties, it is to be faithful to their beliefs and convictions and to make the common good their voting criteria. The behavior of Donald Trump makes it difficult for them to continue to support him.

The emergence of a misguided approach to “America First” has caused many of them to resist the blazoned nationalism and to “seek first the kingdom of God” as it relates to goodness, kindness, justice, truth, and decency.

We believe there is 5-15% of the Christian vote that wants an “exit ramp” from supporting the Trump administration. We work to help them see and take that exit. We believe a change of that size in the Christian vote in this country will guarantee that Donald Trump will not win re-election.

We will change these votes through direct contact with voters, changing the national narrative around religion and politics via media, and training candidates."

‘Pro-life evangelicals’ endorse Biden, ......
https://baptistnews.com/article/pro-life-evangelicals-endorse-biden-dobson-rallies-forces-for-trump-and-maga-church-debuts/

"Prominent signers of the letter include Richard Mouw, president emeritus of Fuller Seminary; Ron Sider, president emeritus of Evangelicals for Social Action; John Huffman, board chair emeritus of Christianity Today; Roberta Hestens and David Black, both presidents emeritus of Eastern University; Dennis Hollinger, president emeritus of Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary; Robert Fryling, former publisher at InterVarsity Press; and Ray Bakke, global missions researcher and educator."

"More than 5,000 “pro-life evangelicals” have signed an online letter noting their opposition to abortion but the necessity of voting for Joe Biden in this year’s presidential contest.

“As pro-life evangelicals, we disagree with Vice President Biden and the Democratic platform on the issue of abortion. But we believe a biblically shaped commitment to the sanctity of human life compels us to a consistent ethic of life that affirms the sanctity of human life from beginning to end,” the statement begins.

It continues: “Many things that good political decisions could change destroy persons created in the image of God and violate the sanctity of human life. Poverty kills millions every year. So does lack of health care and smoking. Racism kills. Unless we quickly make major changes, devastating climate change will kill tens of millions. Poverty, lack of accessible health care services, smoking, racism and climate change are all pro-life issues."

Almost Half of Protestant Pastors Do Not Support the Conservative Presidential Candidate
https://reformationcharlotte.org/2020/10/16/almost-half-of-protestant-pastors-do-not-support-the-conservative-presidential-candidate/

"That a pastor has to give much thought to whether or not he would support the current president or allow room for the alternative is mind-boggling. Despite Trump’s moral character flaws — and he has many of them — to suggest that the alternative baby-killing, pro-sodomite, candidate who wants to steal from the working class to give to the sluggard has the moral high ground is beyond biblically ignorant. Further, Donald Trump isn’t trying to legislate his personal moral character flaws into national policy — the Democrat party is."

Left-wing “Evangelicals for Biden” Have Lost Their Moral Compass!
https://reformationcharlotte.org/2020/10/13/left-wing-evangelicals-for-biden-have-lost-their-moral-compass/

"The Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden website reads like an anemic attempt to justify their support of Biden’s approval of abortion by suggesting racism, poverty, climate change, lack of health care, etc., also kills. Well, possibly, but not one and a half million a year and not as quick and definite."

Tony Evans Implies We Must Embrace Socialism to Have Biblical View on the Role of Government
https://reformationcharlotte.org/2020/09/29/tony-evans-says-we-must-embrace-socialism-to-have-biblical-view-on-the-role-of-government/

"Evans, like all social justice-minded Evangelicals, have embraced the notion that social inequity is as repugnant to God as killing children in the womb. Evans, like Tim Keller, Russell Moore, and others, believe that unless Christians embrace a government that is dedicated to solving these social inequities, these Christians don’t hold to a biblical view of the role of government.

When God is left out of government, “life and its value gets downgraded, reduced, dishonored and attacked,” Evans said, according to the Christian Post. “So when you think about Kingdom voting, you must think about the question of life.”"

"When we allow the poor to have worse education that others because they don't have the same dollar bill, when we don't care about the health, well-being of people who do not have access to adequate healthcare, when we reduce their dignity we have attacked God. And when we reduce it by law or by practice then that's called post-life abortion because you are... aborting either the length of their existance or the well-being of their existence so it just depends on which abortion you are talking about."

Evangelical Elites Try to Demonize Votes for Trump
https://spectator.org/john-piper-evangelical-vote-trump-biden/

“Piper’s reasoning sanctifies Christian abandonment of the unborn on November 3 in favor of using the election as a pedestal on which to display the personal virtue of the voter, a pulpit to chastise the world as sinners, and a platform on which to spank two political parties that cannot clear some undefinably high hurdle of righteousness.

Many Christians, along with Dietrich Bonhoeffer, know that the ovens at Auschwitz and Dachau and the reach into the uterus of bone-crushing metal instruments toward the instinctual flinch-back of doomed but still-living little arms and legs belong alike to killing machines. Body counts matter. Piper offers no estimate of the number of corpses we might expect Trump’s sins to generate. We do know that more than 50 million unborn baby corpses have piled up in America since the passage of Roe v. Wade, dwarfing the number of Jews exterminated by the Nazis several times over.”

Pope Francis goes full communist
https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2020/10/pope_francis_goes_full_communist.html

"In an encyclical published on Sunday, Pope Francis announced that he'd had an epiphany thanks to the Wuhan virus: it's time to ditch capitalism.  But that's not all.  He believes, too, that in a time of a serious infectious disease, we should focus even harder on open borders.  And he blithely upended almost two millennia of Church doctrine by doing away with St. Augustine's "just war" theory.

These actions reflect Francis's Catholic upbringing within the communist "liberation theology" of the Latin American church.  They may also show the effects of his ongoing alliance with Chinese communists and with Muslims."

"Francis wrote. "Anyone who thinks that the only lesson to be learned was the need to improve what we were already doing, or to refine existing systems and regulations, is denying reality."

He cited the grave loss of millions of jobs as a result of the virus as evidence of the need for politicians to listen to popular movements, unions and marginalized groups and to craft more just social and economic policies."

Tax the Rich: Pope Francis Calls for Global Wealth Redistribution

"Tax cuts for the wealthy constitute a “structure of sin,” Pope Francis said Wednesday in a passionate address calling for international wealth redistribution.

“Every year hundreds of billions of dollars, which should be paid in taxes to fund health care and education, accumulate in tax haven accounts,” the pontiff told participants in a Vatican seminar, “thus impeding the possibility of the dignified and sustained development of all social agents.”"

Are the Holy See and the United Nations Too Close for Comfort?

"Most recently, the Vatican has offered largely uncritical support of the SDGs and hosted its proponents, embarked on regular collaboration with population-control advocates and U.N.-affiliated organizations notorious for promoting abortion and gender ideology, and promoted “human fraternity,” a U.N.-backed concept that some see as a push toward a one-world religion."

Pontifical Academy of Sciences Embraces UN’s ‘Sustainable Development’ Agenda
https://www.ncregister.com/blog/pontifical-academy-of-sciences-embraces-un-s-sustainable-development-agenda

"VATICAN CITY — The Pontifical Academy of Sciences, governors from the Pan-Amazon region, and officials from the United Nations were among those who signed a declaration of commitment to sustainable development in the Amazon at the Vatican on Oct. 28.

The little-publicized declaration, signed at Casina Pio IV, the Academy’s headquarters, consists of 14 pledges to “build together effective solutions for sustainable development of Amazonia.” The Register requested a copy and received one from the secretary of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences."

Concluding Thoughts

It is clear that the globalist have massive investments in infrastructure to bring about Covid-19 related controls, and they also have massive investments in driving wedges between the American people through Marxism. The "Great Reset", or the acceleration of their program to bring about a shift to globalist rule in America is not going away. We live in perilous times.

The Times of the Gentiles

By Stan Feldsine

The following article will describe the events of the Times of the Gentiles, starting with the Babylonian Empire until the Antichrist is destroyed at the end of the Tribulation. I have learned a great deal from Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum's book, "The Footsteps of Messiah - A Study of the Sequence of Prophetic Events", and recommend it to anyone interested in an exegetical study of prophetic events in greater detail.

The Times of the Gentiles is the period between the exile of the Jews during the time of the Babylonian Empire and 2nd coming of Messiah at the end of the Tribulation. Jewish occupations of her land between these two events are seen as temporal. Israel will not be fully in control of Jerusalem until the establishment of the Millennial Kingdom.

Luk 21:24 They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

Nebuchadnezzar's Dream

 
The dream that Nebuchadnezzar had and Daniel interpreted is found in Dan 2:31-45. The dream of the "large statue" (Dan 2:31-33) is the definitive illustration of four empires that rule during the Times of the Gentiles throughout history, up until the end of the Tribulation.

The "4 beasts" that Daniel dreams about in Dan 7:3 correspond to the first 4 empires illustrated by the "statue", the Babylonian, Medo-Persian, Hellenistic, and Imperialist Empires. The 1st beast corresponds to the Babylonian Empire, and so on.

The "large statue" will serve as a high level framework of the 4 empires including:

  1. The Babylonian Empire - Head of Gold
  2. Medo-Persian Empire - Chest and arms of silver
  3. The Hellenistic Empire (Greek) - Belly and thighs of bronze
  4. The Imperialist Empire (the Beast) - legs of iron, feet of iron and clay

During this study, there will be references to the 5th and final Millennial Kingdom as well. The Millennial Kingdom follows the Times of the Gentiles, and is not a part of the "large statue". Rather, Jesus Christ who is the head of the Millennial Kingdom is the rock that breaks the "large statue" to pieces (Dan 2:34, Dan 2:44-45).

Each of the 4 empires and the Millennial Kingdom will be covered in detail below. The primary texts for this study are Dan 2:1-45, Dan 7:1-28, Rev 13:1-10, and Rev 17:7-14.

The First Beast - Babylonian Empire

 
The Vision Nebuchadnezzar Saw
 
Dan 2:32 "The head of the statue was made of pure gold..."
 
Daniel's Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Vision
 
Dan 2:37-38 Your Majesty, you are the king of kings. The God of heaven has given you dominion and power and might and glory; (38) in your hands he has placed all mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds in the sky. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold.

The Corresponding Vision Daniel Saw

Dan 7:4 "The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a human being, and the mind of a human was given to it.
 

Notes

 
The first of the four empires during the Times of the Gentiles is described as a "Head of Gold" (Dan 2:32) or the "1st beast" (Dan 7:3-4).

Daniel explained that the "Head of Gold" represented Nebuchadnezzar himself, the one who had the dream of the "large statue" (Dan 2:37-38). Nebuchadnezzar was the head of the Babylonian Empire. (See Jer 27:5-8 and Eze 26:7-14).

The 4 beasts arise from the "sea" (Dan 7:3), and the "earth" (Dan 7:17). The "sea" reveals the 4 empires to be of "Gentile" identity. (See Isa 17:12-13, Mat 13:47-50, Rev 13:1, Rev 17:1, and Rev 17:15). The "earth" reveals the 4 empires to be "earthly" empires as opposed to spiritual kingdoms.

Additional information about the Babylonian Empire can be found in Dan 1:1 to Dan 5:30, Dan 7:4.

For references of Babylon as a lion in Dan 7:4, see Jer 4:7, Jer 48:40, Jer 49:19, Jer 49:22, Jer 50:17, Eze 17:3.

The phrase "mind of a human given it" in Dan 7:4 probably refers to Dan 4:34.

The Second Beast - Medo-Persian Empire

 
The Vision Nebuchadnezzar Saw
 
Dan 2:32 ... "its chest and arms of silver,..."

Daniel's Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Vision
 
Dan 2:39 "After you, another kingdom will arise, inferior to yours. ..."
 
The Corresponding Vision Daniel Saw
 
Dan 7:5 "And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, 'Get up and eat your fill of flesh!'
 

Notes

 
The second of the four empires during the Times of the Gentiles is described as a "chest and arms of silver" (Dan 2:32) or the "2nd beast" (Dan 7:5).

Daniel explained that the "chest and arms of silver" represented a second, inferior empire.

The "bear raised up on one side" in Dan 7:5 reflects that the Persians were the dominant power over the Medes.

The "three ribs in its mouth" in Dan 7:5 reflects the three kingdoms conquered by the Medo-Persian empire, Lydia, Babylonia, and Egypt.

Additional information about the Medo-Persian Empire can be found in Dan 2:39 a, Dan 5:31 to Dan 6:28, Dan 7:5, Dan 8:1-7, Dan 10:1 to Dan 11:2.

The Third Beast - The Hellenist (Greek) Empire

 
The Vision Nebuchadnezzar Saw - The United Stage
 
Dan 2:32 ... "its belly and thighs of bronze,..."

Daniel's Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Vision
 
Dan 2:39 "... Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth.

The Corresponding Vision Daniel Saw - The 4 Division Stage
 
Dan 7:6 "After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.

Notes

 
The third of the four empires of the Times of the Gentiles is described as a "belly and two thighs of brass" (Dan 2:32) or "another beast" (the 3rd beast) (Dan 7:6).

Daniel explained that the "belly and two thighs of brass" represented a third empire that would rule over the whole earth.

The Hellenistic Empire went through two stages. At first, the empire was under united worldwide rule by Alexander the Great, I.E. "the belly" (Dan 2:32, Dan 2:39).

Alexander the Great died during his reign, however, and the empire was divided into four kingdoms. The "four wings" (Dan 7:6) represent the four kingdoms, and the "four heads" (Dan 7:6) represent the four generals who took control of the kingdoms.

  1. Ptolemy - Egypt, Israel and Arabia Petrea
  2. Seleucus - Syria, Babylonia and as far east as India
  3. Cassander - Macedonial and Greece
  4. Lysimachus - Thrace and Bithynia

Additional information about the Hellenistic Empire can be found in Dan 2:39 b, Dan 7:6, Dan 8:7-27, Dan 11:3-35)

The Fourth Beast - Successive Imperialist Empires


The Vision Nebuchadnezzar Saw
 
Dan 2:33 "its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay."

Daniel's Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Vision

Dan 2:40-43 Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron--for iron breaks and smashes everything--and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. (41) Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. (42) As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. (43) And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.

The Corresponding Vision Daniel Saw

Dan 7:7-8 "After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast--terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns. (8) "While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully.

Daniel Inquires About the Meaning of His Vision from "those standing there"

Dan 7:16 I approached one of those standing there and asked him the meaning of all this. "So he told me and gave me the interpretation of these things:

Daniel Receives the Meaning of His Vision

Dan 7:17-18 'The four great beasts are four kings that will rise from the earth. (18) But the holy people of the Most High will receive the kingdom and will possess it forever--yes, for ever and ever.'

Daniel Inquires as to the Meaning of the Forth Beast

Dan 7:19-22 "Then I wanted to know the meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws--the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. (20) I also wanted to know about the ten horns on its head and about the other horn that came up, before which three of them fell--the horn that looked more imposing than the others and that had eyes and a mouth that spoke boastfully. (21) As I watched, this horn was waging war against the holy people and defeating them, (22) until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgment in favor of the holy people of the Most High, and the time came when they possessed the kingdom.

Daniel is Given The Meaning of the Forth Beast

Dan 7:23-26 "He gave me this explanation: 'The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. (24) The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. (25) He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. (26) "'But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever.

The Corresponding Vision John Saw in Revelation 13

Rev 13:1-2 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. (2) The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.

Notes


The fourth of the four empires (Imperialist Empire) of the Times of the Gentiles is described as:

  • "legs of iron with feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay" (Dan 2:40-43)
  • "4th beast" (Dan 7:7)
  • "the beast ... had 10 horns and 7 heads" (Dan 7:7-8, Dan 7:20, Dan 7:24, Rev 13:1, Rev 17:3)
  • "a scarlet beast" that the "woman dressed in purple and scarlet" sits on. (Rev 17:3-4).

Daniel explained that this beast which represented a forth empire would be in power in a series of five stages. Each of these stages will be discussed in more detail below. The diverseness of this beast is pointed out in Dan 7:19-20, Dan 7:23.

  1. The United Stage - Roman Empire (Dan 7:23 a, Dan 2:40)
  2. The Two division stage - East (Russia & Moslem) / West (Democracies) Balance of Power (Dan 7:23 a, Dan 2:41)
  3. The One World Government stage (Dan 7:23 b, Rev 13:7-8)
  4. The Ten Division stage - The 10 Kingdoms (Dan 7:24, Dan 2:41-43, Dan 7:7, Rev 13:1, Rev 17:12-13)
  5. The Antichrist stage - Absolute Imperialism (Dan 7:24-25)

The reigns of the previous 3 empires are over (Dan 7:12). The 4th empire, the Imperialistic Empire would have the characteristics of the previous beasts, a leopard (Hellenistic), a bear (Medo-Persian), and a lion (Babylonian) (Rev 13:2).

The type of government through the 5 stages of this empire is Imperialist. Wikipedia states "Imperialism is a policy or ideology of extending a country's rule over foreign nations, often by military force or by gaining political and economic control of other areas.". This method of world wide government is still in practice today.

Additional information about the Imperialist Empire can be found in Dan 2:40-43, Dan 7:7-12, Dan 7:19-27, Dan 11:36-45.

The Five Individual Stages of the Fourth Empire

 

First Stage - The United Stage (Roman Empire)

 
Daniel's Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Vision

Dan 2:40 Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron--for iron breaks and smashes everything--and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others.

Daniel is Given the Meaning of His Vision

Dan 7:23 "He gave me this explanation: 'The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. ..."

Notes


The "United Stage" is the first stage of the 4th beast, and it occurred during the Roman Empire. Power was centralized and united by the Romans. This stage lasted from 63BC to 364AD.

Second Stage - The Two Division Stage - (East / West balance of Power)


Daniel's Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Vision

Dan 2:41 Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay.

Notes


The "Two Division Stage" is the second stage of the 4th beast. In 364AD, Emperor Valentinian divided the Roman Empire into an east and west division, setting the stage for an east / west balance of power. The west was centered in Rome, and the east in Constantinople.

Third Stage - One World Government Stage


The Corresponding Vision that Daniel Saw

Dan 7:23 "... It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it.

The Corresponding Vision that John Saw

Rev 13:7-8 It was given power to wage war against God's holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. (8) All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast--all whose names have not been written in the Lamb's book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.

Notes


The "One World Government Stage" is the third stage of the 4th beast.

It is at this point that the "fourth empire", "4th beast" will "devour the whole earth" (Dan 7:23, Rev 13:7-8). It is from this that we understand there will be a one world government that rules the world.

Including this stage, the last three stages of the 4th beast are yet future. Yet to occur are the:

  1. One World Government Stage
  2. The 10 Kingdom Stage
  3. The Arrival of the Antichrist Stage

Fourth Stage - The 10 Kingdom Stage - (The 10 Horns)


Daniel's Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Vision

Dan 2:41-43 As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. (43) And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay.

The Corresponding Vision that Daniel Saw

Dan 7:7 "After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast--terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.

Dan 7:24 The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings.

The Corresponding Vision John Saw - (Rev 12, 13, 17)

Rev 12:3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.

Rev 13:1 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.

Rev 17:3 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns.

Rev 17:7 Then the angel said to me: "Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns.

Rev 17:12-13 "The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. (13) They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast.

Rev 17:16 The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.

Notes About the 10 Kingdoms (10 Horns)


The "10 Kingdom Stage" is the fourth stage of the 4th beast (Imperialist Empire) (Dan 7:7). The fourth empire divides into ten kingdoms as illustrated in the:

  • The toes - (Dan 2:41-42)
  • The 10 horns - (Dan 7:7, Dan 7:24, Rev 17:12, Rev 17:16)
  • The 10 horns and 7 heads - (Rev 12:3, Rev 13:1, Rev 17:3, Rev 17:7)

The 10 horns are 10 kings which arise from the forth beast (Imperialist Empire). This is represented in the "statue" as "toes - part strong, part brittle" (Dan 2:41-42).

These 10 kings will have a limited reign before the Antichrist rises in power to take authority over them (Rev 17:12). We should expect to see a one world government take the form of or give place to a 10 kingdom rule over the entire world (Dan 7:23).

These 10 kingdoms will be installed before the Antichrist rises to power, since the power of the 10 kingdoms is already in existence when it is given to him (Rev 17:13).

John referred to the Antichrist as an 8th king in relation to the horns. The Antichrist had overthrown 3 of the kings of the "10 Kingdoms" (Dan 7:8, Dan 7:20, Dan 7:24), leaving 7 kingdoms. As such, the Antichrist is the "8th king" in relation to "horns" (Rev 17:11). He is the "7th king" in relation to "heads" (Rev 17:10).

After the Antichrist subdues the 3 kingdoms, the remaining 7 kingdoms reign with the 8th (Antichrist) for a "one hour" (Rev 7:12), and the Antichrist's reign itself is for only a "little while" (Rev 17:10).

Many believed the 10 Kingdom Stage to be a revived Roman Empire, of which the European Common Market, and now the European Union is supposed to be a manifestation. This is not a likely scenario however, since these 10 kingdoms are to exercise world rulership via 10 kings (Rev 17:12-13). It is more consistent with the text that the European Union could be one of the 10 kingdoms, but not all 10.

Notes About the 7 Kingdoms (7 Heads)


The 7 heads passages represent a second perspective on the Times of the Gentiles, or the time frame of the "large statue" of Nebuchadnezzar's vision. While the "10 horns" is a view of the "10 Kingdom Stage" of the 4th Beast (Imperialist Empire) as seen by Daniel, the "7 heads" is a view of the entire time frame of the 4 empires represented by the "large statue" as seen by John.

References to the 7 Heads

Rev 12:3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.

Rev 13:1 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.

Rev 17:3 Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns.

Rev 17:7 Then the angel said to me: "Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns.

Rev 17:9-10 "This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. (10) They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while.

Notes Regarding the 7 Heads

The 7 heads are 7 kings (Rev 17:10). "Mountains" or "hills" is meant to be taken figuratively, since it is clearly stated that they are "kings". "Mountain" is a common figure for kingdoms throughout the Bible.

The 10 horns and 7 heads are two different sets of kings. In the case of the 10 horns, we see that they reign concurrently, I.E. "will receive authority as kings along with the beast" (Rev 17:12), whereas in the case of the 7 heads we see that they reign sequentially, I.E. "five have fallen, one is, and one not yet come" (Rev 17:10).

So the 7 heads are seen sequentially as follows (Rev 17:10):

Five have fallen (A part of History from John's Perspective)

  1. The Tarqiun Kings (753-510BC)
  2. The Counsulors (510-494BC)
  3. The Plebians or Dictators (494-390BC)
  4. The Republicans or Decimvers (390-59BC)
  5. The Triumvirate (59-27BC) (Oligarchy of 10)

    One is (The Present from John's Perspective)
     
  6. Imperialism (29BC-Mid Trib)

    One is not yet (The Future from John's Perspective)
     
  7. Antichrist Kingdom

Fifth Stage - Antichrist Stage


Daniel's Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Vision

Dan 2:40 Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron--for iron breaks and smashes everything--and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others.

The Corresponding Vision that Daniel Saw

Dan 7:23-26 "He gave me this explanation: 'The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. (24) The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. (25) He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. (26) "'But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever.

The Corresponding Vision that John Saw

Rev 13:1-2 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. (2) The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.

Rev 13:5-10 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. (6) It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. (7) It was given power to wage war against God's holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. (8) All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast--all whose names have not been written in the Lamb's book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world. (9) Whoever has ears, let them hear. (10) "If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword they will be killed." This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of God's people.

Notes


The last of the five stages of the forth beast (empire) is absolute imperialism lead by the Antichrist (Dan 2:40, Dan 7:23). John speaks of the rising of this beast in Rev 13:1, identifying it by the 10 horns and 7 heads, and by identifying it through characteristics similar to the first three empires (Dan 7:4-6, Rev 13:2).

The Antichrist and his system of government is referred to as "the little horn" (Dan 7:8, Dan 7:11, Dan 7:20, Dan 7:24), the "beast" (Rev 13:1, Rev 13:3-5, Rev 13:8, (Rev 17:8, Rev 17:11, Rev 17:16, Rev 17:17), the "scarlet beast" (Rev 17:3), and an "8th king" (Rev 17:11).

The Antichrist will arise out of one of the 10 kingdoms as a "little horn" (Dan 7:8, Dan 7:20, Dan 7:24).

The "little horn" uproots three of the 10 kingdoms (Dan 7:8, Dan 7:20, Dan 7:24), leaving 7 kingdoms remaining who willingly give authority to the Antichrist (Rev 17:17).

John referred to the Antichrist as an "8th king" in relation to the horns. The Antichrist had overthrown 3 of the kings of the "10 Kingdoms" (Dan 7:8, Dan 7:20, Dan 7:24), leaving 7 kingdoms. As such, the Antichrist is the "8th king" in relation to "horns" (Rev 17:11). He is the "7th king" in relation to "heads" (Rev 17:10).

Additionally, the Antichrist is referred to as "the one is yet to come" (Rev 17:10).

Five have fallen (A part of History from John's Perspective)

  1. The Tarqiun Kings (753-510BC)
  2. The Counsulors (510-494BC)
  3. The Plebians or Dictators (494-390BC)
  4. The Republicans or Decimvers (390-59BC)
  5. The Triumvirate (59-27BC) (Oligarchy of 10)

    One is (The Present from John's Perspective)
     
  6. Imperialism (29BC-Mid Trib)

    One is not yet (The Future from John's Perspective)
     
  7. Antichrist Kingdom

The Antichrist and hist system (beast) is also referred to as the one who "and now is not" (Rev 17:8, Rev 17:11). This beast in this context is the person of the Antichrist. The Antichrist is not here now ("now is not"), and when he arrives will ultimately become "an 8th king".

After the Antichrist subdues the 3 kingdoms, the remaining 7 kingdoms reign with the 8th (Antichrist) for a "one hour" (Rev 7:12). The Antichrist's reign itself is for only a "little while" (Rev 17:10).

The Antichrist then makes war with God's people and defeats them for 3 1/2 years (Dan 7:21, Dan 7:25) until the 2nd coming of Christ (Dan 2:44, Dan 7:11, Dan 7:14, Dan 7:22, Dan 7:26-27, Rev 17:14).

At some point, one of the heads of the Antichrist will suffer a fatal wound (Rev 13:3, Rev 13:12-14). Since the heads of the beast (4th empire) represented the 10 Kingdoms, it seems that one of the Kingdoms perished, but then is revived. The people wondered who was like the beast and who could make war with it, seeming to imply that the Antichrist and his system came to the rescue of this kingdom (Rev 13:4).

Relations to the Antichrist


Since there is a great deal of confusion about who various individuals related to the Antichrist are, some space will be given to understanding their identities. See https://ariel.org.nz/the-four-women-of-revelation/ for additional information.

The Many Waters


Rev 17:15-16 Then the angel said to me, "The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. (16) The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire.
 
Notes

The "many waters" are clearly identified here as the people of the world.

The Prostitute / Woman on the Scarlet Beast / False Prophet

Rev 17:1 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, "Come, I will show you the punishment of the great prostitute, who sits by many waters.

Notes

The "prostitute" is the false religious system of the forth beast (empire), ecclesiastical Babylon. It is the One World Religion counterpart to the One World Government and the final form of the apostate church. The prostitute will work in cooperation with the civil authority during the first half of the Tribulation (Rev 17:2). Ecclesiastical Babylon will be a combination of all false religions, false Protestantism, and the Jezebel element of Catholicism, into a one-world religious system. True believers can expect to be persecuted by this religious system (Rev 17:6).

Scripture refers to the leader of the prostitute as the "False Prophet" (Rev 19:20, Rev 20:10). In Rev 13, John refers to the False Prophet as the "second beast" (Rev 13:11). The "first" beast (Rev 13:15) is the same as fourth beast of Nebuchadnezzar, the Imperialist Empire, as it is the same beast that has the 10 horns (Rev 13:1). It is the False Prophet that causes all to receive the Mark of the Beast and have all who do not worship the "first beast", the AntiChrist killed (Rev 13:15-16). The False Prophet plays a key role in the end time deceptions (2Th 2:9-12).

This system is the counterfeit of our Messiah, and is represented by Roman Catholicism (Rev 2:20-21). This false religion influences many people from many nations (Rev 17:15).

The woman, who is here identified as "the great city", is rebuilt Babylon, the headquarters of the One World Religion (Rev 17:18).

The Scarlet Beast

Rev 17:3  Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. 

Notes

The "scarlet beast" is the Antichrist and his system. It is the same beast that has the 10 horns and 7 heads, the 4th empire (Rev 17:3).


The Dragon

Rev 13:1 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name.

Notes

The Dragon is Satan (Rev 12:9, Rev 20:2), and the "beast coming out of the sea" with the 10 horns and 7 heads is the One World Government which will take on the form of a 10 Nation Confederacy. This beast is said to have 10 horns and 7 heads (Rev 13:1), and has the characteristics of the first three empires (Rev 13:2). The Dragon, Satan, is said to have 7 heads and 10 horns, and this seems to represent Satan's authority and consistency of purpose with the Antichrist and his system (Rev 17:3). Rev 13:4 distinguishes between the dragon and the "beast", or forth empire.

The Messianic Kingdom


The Vision that Nebuchadnezzar Saw

Dan 2:34-35 While you were watching, a rock was cut out, but not by human hands. It struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and smashed them. (35) Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver and the gold were all broken to pieces and became like chaff on a threshing floor in the summer. The wind swept them away without leaving a trace. But the rock that struck the statue became a huge mountain and filled the whole earth.

Daniel's Interpretation of Nebuchadnezzar's Vision


Dan 2:44-45 "In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. (45) This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands--a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces. "The great God has shown the king what will take place in the future. The dream is true and its interpretation is trustworthy."

The Corresponding Vision Daniel Saw

Dan 7:9-10 "As I looked, "thrones were set in place, and the Ancient of Days took his seat. His clothing was as white as snow; the hair of his head was white like wool. His throne was flaming with fire, and its wheels were all ablaze. (10) A river of fire was flowing, coming out from before him. Thousands upon thousands attended him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened.

Dan 7:13-14 "In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. (14) He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.

Daniel is Given the Meaning of His Vision

Dan 7:27 Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of all the kingdoms under heaven will be handed over to the holy people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him.'

Corresponding Vision John Saw

Rev 17:14 They will wage war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will triumph over them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings--and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers."

Rev 19:20 But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur.

Notes


The Messianic Kingdom heralds the end of the Times of the Gentiles (Luk 21:24).

The 4th Empire's authority is taken away, and their lives are prolonged a little while.

The Millennial Kingdom will be set up during the time of the 10 Kingdoms and will eventually replace the Antichrist (Dan 2:44).
