United States Of America and Russia Are Part Of The Fourth Kingdom - Both are descendant from the Roman Empire - Iron Mixed With Clay. It will bring upon us "A New World In Disorder"
Russia has a prophetic agenda, Ezekiel 38. NATO members and the USA have none. Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Russia and failed. Adolph Hitler invaded Russia and failed. USA and NATO will fail. This commentary explains why?
This study on “The Fourth Kingdom” started with pure speculation. Now it has become factual supported by resent geo-political events as evidences.

“Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces." Daniel 7:23
The fourth kingdom that shall devour the whole earth is here since the end of the Second World War. The Key to identify the fourth kingdom that devours the whole earth is in Daniel description as being different from all other kingdoms. It does not bear any resemblance to any geo-political characteristic of the previous kingdom. It is not like the Babylonian Empire, the Persian Empire, and the Greece Empire. Although, they all have one common characteristic... they are gentile.
Let us start by locating the United States of America in Bible Prophecy. Oh yes it is there. Incredible, it has been all along part of King Nebuchadnezzar dream's statue, in the western feet "Iron mixed with clay".
First, take notice that United States of America IS NOT ISRAEL, NEITHER PART OF THE LOST TEN TRIBES OF ISRAEL. Inasmuch some Christians denominations believe that “The Church” now replaces Israel, their are many who believe that United Stated is Ephraim which is one of the 12 tribe of Israel. In both cases, it is a grave error and this false belief hindered the understanding of Bible Prophecy. Another grave error is to use bible verses designated for Israel or Judah to correct or to warn United States of America of God impending judgement. United States of America is a gentile nation inasmuch as all other nations, daughter of Babylon, Zechariah 2:7.
God prophecy describes in King Nebuchadnezzar dream' statue two feet, both made of iron mixed with clay. In fact, both are part of an agglomeration with the Western nations and the Eastern nations.
Why do I believe that America is part of one of the feet of King Nebuchadnezzar dream's statue? One reason is that it has so many Roman characteristics.
United States of America is a gentile nation that also happens to have a large population of Christians. The country has benefit by the present of Christians in particularly by the protestant denominations. Unfortunately, Christian's influence has been decreasing at an alarming rate. Lawlessness is in the increase. What most of you readers don't know is that American Christians are as much a Roman citizen now as was the Apostle Paul was in the early Church. Paul has duel citizenship, Jewish from his father side and Roman from his mother. American Christians have historically; Roman citizenship and American citizenship.
United States of America is not Rome but it citizens surely act as Romans. Rome was full of idol worshippers and it citizens were wicked as is America today. Unwanted Roman babies were thrown on the roadside and in the rivers. Homosexuality was accepted as a life style and fornication was a form of goddess worship. Elders, widows and orphans were left on their own to survive. There were plenty of thieves and murderers. In America, abortion is accepted as a type of birth control and treated as garbage. Babies are found wrapped inside a trash bag in a dumpster. Homosexuality is viewed as a lifestyle; anus sex is viewed as normal sexual behaviour between man. Millions of dollars are made on porn's. Prostitution is just a way to relax from the stress of life. Wow, no wonder God's judgment is upon America!
What is another feature that makes the fourth kingdom different? It is it geo-political slow alteration through history. I observed that there was a quick transition between the first three empires within the statue; between the head of gold, which represent the Babylonian Empire, and the Medes and Persian Empire represented by the chest and arms of silver and the Grecian Empire represented by the thighs of bronze. Babylon was overtaking overnight and fall. It was swift and decisive.
It was also a quick transition with the Grecian Empire represented by the middle and upper part of it thighs of bronze, which defeated the Medes and Persian Empire and expanded it empire as for as India. The life of Alexander the Great was cut short, his empire was therefore divided within his four generals. The Roman, the legs of iron, one by one, conquered them. At the time of Jesus’ appearance which coincide with Daniel 69 weeks of Dan 9:24-27, the Roman Empire was well establish. The Romans were responsible for the fall on Jerusalem, the destruction of the Temple and the deportation of the Jews worldwide. There was a quick transition between the Babylonian Empire, the Persian Empire, and the Grecian Empire to the Roman Empire. All took place within five centuries. The empire, which will devour the whole earth, is Rome that never ceases. Rome went through a series of geo-political metamorphosis through out centuries. At the time of Jesus, the Roman Empire did not devour the whole earth, but it is today. The world is about to be trampled and broken to pieces by a worldwide nuclear exchange.
But first in Daniel 7:23 clearly state that at some point in time the Fourth Empire - Rome will devour the whole earth. That transformation started when the empire was divided into an east and west division, clearly describing two legs of iron. The Western Roman Empire capital was Rome while the Eastern Roman Empire capital was Constantinople.
One major characteristic of the Roman was their forcefulness,
"strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others," Daniel 2:40.
The Roman had a reputation of been rude and imposing. It has all the characteristic of Imperialism.
Its economy is based on the exploitation of conquered inhabitants in order to enrich the emperor's treasuries. Romans would invade a nation, overtakes their political establishment and set up their own representative. Not like the previous empires where they would allow the conquered to self-governance and pay a tribute in taxes. As a Roman citizen, they benefit wealth and good living but as an occupant, they were detriment of all luxuries and lived in destitute.
American and the other western nations are living a wealthy lifestyle that comes from the exploitation of the third world nations. The west is not alone; by itself, the west does not devour the whole earth.
The Western nations are represented only by one iron leg. The Eastern nations represent the other leg. Many bible scholars believe the iron feet represented the empire of Rome and the empire of Constantinople. The vision in which Daniel experienced described further more.
“Then I wished to know the truth about the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze, which devoured, broke in pieces, and trampled the residue with its feet;" Daniel 7:19
Have you notice the additional description of the fourth beast? "With its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze."
Iron in the dream statue of King Nebuchadnezzar represents Rome, bronze represent Greece; Eastern and Western Empire. According to God's prophetic agenda, we are smack at the end of that era.
Many bible scholars agree as history showed, these two empires never expired. They only relocated and assimilated; one to Eastern Europe and the other Western Europe.
God established a balance of power over centuries that would last until the establishment of Ten Kings nations, the ten toes. As time went by the Roman geopolitical aspect of both iron legs weaken and decline to the feet, iron mix with clay and that my friend is where we are now.
The west foot constantly inspires to re-establish the entire Roman Empire, first within the western part of Europe its own foot and then the east foot. The west initiated the restoration of the two feet division. The Emperor of France, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Adolph Hitler Führer of Germany tried to unite the two feet but failed. On both occasions, they failed by an Act of God. The winter that followed their invasion, God brought upon both conquering armies the coldest unbearable winter ever. Now we see the West in a futile attempt to reunite the two feet within the activities in Ukraine.
The United States of America and the EU are continuously interfering over the internal affair of the Ukrainians population by provoking Vladimir Putin with false accusations after another. Over what? Over the sovereign right for the population of Crimea for self-governance who chooses through a referendum with a majority of 96% in favour to separate from Ukraine and to reunite with Russia instead of the EU. More than 82 percent of the electorate took part in the vote. These numbers speak for themselves. The Ukraine population wants to do the same. The EU and the USA economy are in the brink to collapse and the Ukraine wants a secure economy where Russia can provide. Can you blame them?
The capital of Ukraine is no more a democracy. The people elect no one in Kiev parliament. Washington appoints them, just like ancient Rome did. The elected democratic government voted against joining the EU. Therefore, Washington launched a coup mechanism and succeeds.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the US neo-conservative party, systematic broke all treaties made between Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. The Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty (ABM), The Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), and The Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (CFE). In simplicity, no eastern countries would be brought into NATO, no ABM would be deployed near the Russian border, no INF either. Now, U.S. Moves Toward Nuclear First Strike Capability. The USA and NATO missiles are now at the Russian border threatening Russia in Poland.
The Soviet Union indeed played a decisive role in the liberation of Europe from Nazi Germany and supported the reunification of Germany and its ascension into NATO after the fall of the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact. Then US President George Bush Sr. had given assurances to Russia that NATO will not expand eastward, and yet despite Moscow's show of trust, the US and its allies violated that commitment.
It is no secret about the United States of America wanting to expand it imperialist influence and it currency to the whole world. The USA wanted to evict the Russian from the Black Sea and failed. Now all attempt to create false flag to provoke Russia to invade Ukraine are in the making so that the west could react into a first strike nuclear attack on Russia.
Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Russia and failed. Adolph Hitler invaded Russia and failed. USA and NATO will fail. A Disastrous Nuclear Consequences will follow...
The characteristic of "iron that crushes, breaking in pieces and crushing all the others," stayed with both feet through out the centuries to come and still is today. The colonial era of the west demonstrates the same force by imposing and establishing their governance to their colonies. The United States of America was a colony of the Kingdom of Great Britain before it independence. It obtained their sovereignty by war. U.S.A. kept up with the characteristic describes in Daniel. After the war of independence, United States then of 13 nations forcefully expropriated and deported the native to reservation territories describing again Imperialism characteristic.
United States continued to use slaves as work force from Africa, which was then abolished by brute force through the civil war... there was nothing civil about the war. United States as of today continued to impose their political supremacy over all the world continents, and especially the third world. The American Petro-dollars is the world trade currency. The United States exploits cheap labour in the third world countries. United States of America govern for a corporate style interest only, purely Imperialist.
With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, United Stated became the sole military might in the world, a one super power, and the new policy were to maintain and expand this supremacy, therefore declaring to the world that United States of America has now become the NEW ROME.
Great Britain and other European nations had allowed most of their colonies to become self-governed especially those colonies with a large white European population. e,g, Canada, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, and many more. These are known today as The Commonwealth of Nations, which is an intergovernmental organisation of 54-member states. They are as today tied to England. They may not pay taxes to England but under the formula of the London Declaration, Queen Elizabeth II is the Head of the Commonwealth. They have trade ties and are loyal allied in case of war. An example of that was when the Germany attempt twice to establish their version of the Roman Empire. First World War and Second World War had better known as the second and third Reich. The western nations rallied together to fight against Germany. So did Russia, the eastern leg of the statue. Britain was in command of the military strategies to win the war, as it was against Bonaparte. Keep that in mind about Britain today as you continue to read.
Great Britain, French, Dutch, Spain, German and Italy colonization were brutal by meaningless killing and forcing the occupant to submission, appropriating their resources and establishing their own governance in the country of occupation called colonizes. As of today, Canada, South Africa, Brazil, Chile, New Zealand, United States of America and many more are still occupying native land. That probably offends many Christians who believe that their country is God given. That is why so many Christians in those countries have difficulties to understand bible prophecies; they are denying the history of origin. American Christians are willing to do anything to save and restore America; they deny that America has Roman characteristic and is just another gentile nations.
Sandwiched between the legs and the ten toes, a portion of the feet is iron mixed with clay. These still consist of Roman type of governance. After the end of the First World War, we witness the end of the Czars and Kaiser dynasty. Czars (Tsar) of Russia and the Kaisers of Germany ended in the same year 1917. What system of government became prominent in the West? Democracy! Democracy as clay is the weakness within the Western nations.
As you notice, the East has similar Roman characteristic of being as forceful and brutal as the Roman. The east may have been a different type of governance yet the East acts "as iron that crushes break in pieces and crush all the others."
The eastern leg of King Nebuchadnezzar dream’s statue is the Russian Empire. In 1922 the communist took over and it was the birth of the USSR. The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics abbreviated to USSR or the Soviet Union. It was a socialist state until 1991. It governed as a single-party state by the Communist Party with Moscow as its capital.
Although it was not governed by a tsar, God made sure that the east foot of Nebuchadnezzar dream's statue be keep separated from the west foot, iron mixed with clay. At the end of the Second World War, the Russia occupied part of the western foot that included East Germany, but excluded West-Berlin; it occupied Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria. For over fourthly years the world experienced the threat of nuclear annihilation by both the east and the west foot. Those were the years of the cold war. It was not God appointed time to allow a nuclear exchange then.
God plan to keep the east and west apart, therefore, the Russian occupation was short live. The fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 was God's doing, the communism collapse in Russia which ended the occupation in the west foot. No one expected it. All world news media were taken by surprise, even the President of the United States George H. W. Bush was astonish.
The new Russian constitution establishes a semi-presidential system, resembling the French system but with stronger executive power, due to the increased independence of the president in comparison to the French model. And guest what the French model of governance is based upon? You guessed it ... the Romans model.
Russia is also an amalgamation of states, iron mix with clay. The 1993 Constitution allowed more governance power to the 89 republic states. The Putin presidency, which commenced in 2000, began a process of centralization within the Federation.
The Russia has Roman characteristic. Look at the way in which they fought their war in Chechnya. It was a full-out campaign against rebels; bombing cities, indiscriminate massacres, population expulsions and finally gaining control of territory.
The United States of America is also united by clay. The fragile agreement in their constitution is keeping them together. Why it is fragile? Under their constitution, all individual have rights and that by itself is causing conflict. They all want their rights and the constitution of America guarantee just that. Presently President Obama is rapidly breaking apart the constitution, discretely taking away their freedom.
Verse 41 "Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay". Iron symbolizes military strength, clay bureaucracy.
In a letter to the American People, Russian President Putin Personally Writes "A Plea for Caution from Russia Over Syria," describing United States model as being Imperialism:
"It is alarming that military intervention in internal conflicts in foreign countries has become commonplace for the United States. Is it in America’s long-term interest? I doubt it. Millions around the world increasingly see America not as a model of democracy but relying solely on brute force, cobbling coalitions together under the slogan “you’re either with us or against us."
The United Nations is attempting to keep peace between the two feet with peace agreement and with U.N. troop intervention among its members. Their members consist of nations that have allegiance either with the west foot or with the east foot. The world is divided in two, two feet as God planed.
Between the east foot and the west foot, they devour the whole earth.
Since the Second World War, the world is under the supremacy of these two super empires. Believe it or not, Britain is leading the western nations, devouring the third world countries and willing to war for it dream of a new world order. Russia is leading in the east, part of the Middle East and many allied countries. They also devour and control the economy of the third world countries and willing to war to protect their foreign investments such as in Iran. The world is divided in two. Nations of the world are either affiliated with the Eastern Roman Empire or with the Western Roman Empire, nevertheless the whole world is under the supremacy of the east or the west, which fulfills Daniel 7:23 prophecy:
“Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces." Daniel 7:23
The toes of the statue do not represent the future revival of the former Roman Empire. I do not believe in a revival per se but rather a continuation of the fragmented deterioration of the Roman Empire. It will not return to its original statue of grandeur, with strength and power. Rather it will be smaller, divided, and therefore weaker. It will not be a New World Order but rather a World In Disorder, divided, chaos, and anarchy... And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces." Daniel 7:23"
"But Jesus knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand," Matthew 12:25.
A New World order is the dream of the west for the perfect world, Utopia! It will never happen. Ten toes, iron mixed with clay becoming so weak that a little horn will come out of it and subduing three kingdoms. These kingdoms will still rule as iron yet weak as clay. Military might with weak human leadership.
These leaders will have great difficulty to restrain the wickedness of man. Great man of war came out of anarchy such as Napoleon and Hitler. Now you understand why the man of sin, the one that will deceive the whole world would be given power and authority from three kingdoms. This man would have so much charisma and ruse that Hitler would be viewed insignificant compare to him. He would be as Nimrod reincarnated.
"As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay," Daniel 2:43
What about Israel?
It is my firm belief (until proven otherwise) that Israel will be part of the 10 kingdoms. King Nebuchadnezzar dream never mentioned Israel in the sequence of the world empires. Since it captivity to Babylon, the land of the Israelites was conquered, occupied by many armies and was left desolated as Jesus predicted, Matthew 23:38.
Ezek 37 prophecy was partially fulfilled in 1948, since the Church is still present; the restoration Israel is not complete.
"For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in," Romans 11:25.
What to come in the future:
As of today, I cannot guest which nations will unite to become one kingdom - one toe, iron mixes with clay. There will be 10 kingdoms, they will consist of a weak confederation of countries - toes mixed with clay.
As it was in the end of days of Israel fulfilment of God prophecies, so it will be with all the nation of this world. Chapter 2, 7 and 11 of Daniel is all about God prophetic agenda toward the gentile nations. We are now at the end of the feet era and are about to enter the ten toes era. It is actually eight toes since the little horn will pluck out three horns and supersede them. This is how I view the end of the feet era.
The Kingdom of Great Britain is alive and active via the World Bank. It controls the western world market. The United States Federal Reserve is a private institution where it members are major World Banks owners.
Britain might have lost the battle of 1776 against the American's colonies, when the colonies obtained it independence, but the British under the guise of the Federal Reserve took over America's economy and political sovereignty on December 0f 1913. It was the British resolution to bring to submission the United States of America to help fulfill their goal as according to God prophetic plan.
Same old Roman tactic used in Egypt in 30 BC. Egypt maintained the appearance of an Egyptian state, but it was, in fact, no more than a dependency of Rome. Likewise, America, maintained the appearance of an independent nation, but is in fact, a dependency of Great Britain. Great Britain demonstrates the same imposing force by establishing their governance to United States as it did to their colonies.
It is the British goal to built America into super military power using borrowed money from their own banks (Federal Reserve) by printing imaginary currency out of thin air. They successfully eliminated gold as the world trade currency by deceiving all nations to relinquish their gold, except China, India and Russia. Subsequently force upon the world nations the U.S. currency... devouring the whole earth.
President Nixon issued Executive Order 11615 in August 1971, ending the direct convertibility of dollars to gold. The Petro dollars replaced the gold. Any oil producing countries that want to use a different currency was eradicated. Countries such as Iraq, and Libya, and now possibly Iran and Syria might be next. Is this not Imperialist?
Britain wants to incite a war against Russia for the purpose to reunite the entire Roman Empire, therefore supremacy of the entire world, a New World Order. Russia does not embrace the Western dream of a New World Order. Syria or Ukraine might be just that bait. Britain has no intention to divide the world into ten kingdoms...but the consequence of their audacity of grandiose might be their destruction.
United States of America and it NATO members have the audacity to believe that it would survive an all out nuclear war due to Nuclear First Strike Capability and the safety provision of their underground bunkers built in many location in United States and Europe. It is my personal opinion that President Obama is Britain string-puppet to achieve their objective. Have you notice recently that President Obama has methodically replace high ranking general with ones that he knows would not hesitate to act on his command to launch a full scale nuclear strike on Russia?
However, as Bonaparte and Hitler experienced defeat by an Act of God, this attempt by the West will fail. God will not allow it. God has plans for Russia in Ezek 38, remember, Russia will not repeat the same mistake as they had with Bonaparte and Hitler. You know the old saying, “Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me." Russia will not hesitate on a pre-empted strike on United States.
Isaiah 17 - describe the destruction of Damascus. Have you noticed how much Syria is in the news lately? Rebels backed by a NATO west military alliance against Syria Bashar al-Assad Regime, are indiscriminately killing innocent children and woman. The scenes of children and innocent people killed scandalize the west that turns a blind eye on the atrocities made by their militaries.
Russia warned the west to stay out of Syria. The west is not listening. The west is provoking Russia. The moment Damascus is hit and destroyed by a western nuclear warhead, all hell will break lose... Russia will launch an arsenal of nuclear warheads to major city in United States and western nation’s capitals. Isaiah 17 - describe the destruction of Damascus.
The result will be the complete annihilation of major cities in America, London, England and many major cities of the Commonwealth countries. Rome, the Vatican will be destroyed also since it was the instigator of the Unification of the Roman Empire. United States will no longer have the prestige and the power to influence the world.
"Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth, Which shall be different from all other kingdoms, And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces," Daniel 7:23.
Consequently, Russia will also be weaken by the war, but will remain strong enough to fulfill the prophecy of Ezekiel 38, the war of Gog and Magog against Israel. The Western allied nations will not intervene since they have been eliminated out of the prophetic picture. Russia will war against Israel since Israel was allied with the west. That will be the fulfillment of Ezekiel 38. God will miraculous intervene and save Israel from the war of Gog and Magog. This will prove to the whole world that God of Israel is God of all nations, Ezekiel 38:23.
The result of this war of nuclear exchange will be the regroup of 10 blocks of confederation consisting of amalgamated countries. Toes made of iron mixed with clay. This is when the little horn will appear. I have no clue who and which country will represent the little horn. The little horn is a king of a little kingdom. A horn represents a kingdom.
After the war of Gog and Magog, the entire world will be in disarray. It is a World In Disorder. It is chaos and anarchy. The nations of the world and population are now ready to accept the "Little Horn"
Before I go any further, I am reminding you that this is my speculation... I am not a bible scholar neither a theologian. I don't write books for a living. I am a regular person who goes through life like many other Christians. I seek the truth among all others studies made on the subject. No one has the whole truth, therefore let us help each other get to the bottle of God's plan for humanity. My speculation about the little horn is just that a speculation. The Church will not be around to see the little horn activities in the final stage of biblical prophecy.
The Rapture is imminent. Although the rapture is not a date and time event, we understand that Israel cannot fulfill its last day's commission as long as the Church is still here present.
"For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in," Romans 11:25.
I have no idea if the church will be present to see the destruction of Damascus, and be present to see the establishment of the ten toes iron mixed with clay but I can guarantee you that the Church will not be present when the man of sins 'the little horn' confirms a covenant between Israel and surrounding Arab nations.
THIS IS GOD’S MASTER PLAN... NOT Satan's plan
“ And at the end of the time I, Nebuchadnezzar, lifted my eyes to heaven, and my understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High and praised and honored Him who lives forever:
For His dominion is an everlasting dominion, And His kingdom is from generation to generation. All the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing; He does according to His will in the army of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth. No one can restrain His hand or say to Him, “What have You done?” Daniel 4:34-35
