Part Of The Fourth Kingdom
Mixed With Clay
... I am not a bible scholar neither a theologian. I don't write books for a living. I am a regular guy 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 bottom of God's plan for humanity. My speculation about “The Fourth Kingdom” is just that a speculation.
“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. This is a lengthy commentary; therefore, I suggest that you print it.
Let us start by locating the United States of America in Bible Prophecy. Oh yes it is there. Unbelievably, 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.
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. Here is an observation by Ray C. Stedman identifying some characteristic of the United States as Romans:
"One of the remarkable things about history is that the Roman Empire has persisted in the history of the western nations in a very remarkable way. When we think of our own nation, for instance, we have to face the very clear fact that America is very Roman. We have a Senate, just like the Roman Senate. We got the very name from the Roman Empire. We have laws that are derived from the laws of Rome, which were propagated in the days of the power of the Roman Empire. Our court system is Roman. Our very national emblem is Roman. The Roman eagles were known all over the world of that day, and the American eagle is similarly known in our world today. Not only is the United States Roman in many ways, just a few of which I have just traced, but every single nation in the western hemisphere including our own is Roman, derived from nations which were part of the Roman Empire. That is a most remarkable phenomenon. There is no other part of the world with that kind of record. Ordinarily the native peoples of this hemisphere would have formed their own kingdoms and empires of their own that persisted to the present day, and if you read back in ancient American history you know there were remarkable empires here. The Aztec empire in Mexico, the Inca empire in Peru, the Mayan empire in Central America were most remarkable civilizations with advanced technology and every reason and right to survive into modern times, but none of them did. Everyone of them has disappeared. In their place has come an invasion from the west of Europe that has been reproduced in the nations of the Western Hemisphere. So, we have clearly a Roman strain running through all the western world."
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 in the early Church. Paul has duel citizenship, Jewish from his father side and Roman from his mother. American Christians have Roman citizenship and American citizenship.
United States of America is not Rome but it citizens surely act as Romans. Rome was full of idol worshipers and it citizens were wicked as is America today. Unwanted Roman babies were thrown on the roadside as garbage. 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 homosexuality as a life style. Millions of dollars are made in pornographies and prostitution.
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. As described by Dr. Chuck Missler:
In 539 BC, Cyrus son of Cambyses took Babylon without a struggle. According to the Greek historian Herodotus, Cyrus diverted the course of the Euphrates river, making the river level drop and giving the invading forces the ability to enter into the city that night through the river bed. Nobody noticed them coming in, and the city gates that opened up onto the river were not closed; the Persians were able to just walk into town. Within a year, Cyrus declared that all the Jews captive in Babylon were free to return home to Jerusalem, as described in Ezra 1.
The same was 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. They were conquered by the Roman, one by one, the legs of iron. 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 and will until the end of time. A stone cut out without hands will destroy it. At the time of Jesus, the Roman Empire did not devour the whole earth, but it is today.
"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 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
Several events from the 4th to 6th centuries mark the transitional period during which the Roman Empire's east and west divided. In 285, the emperor Diocletian partitioned the Roman Empire's administration into eastern and western halves. Between 324 and 330, Constantine I transferred the main capital from Rome to Byzantium, later known as Constantinople ("City of Constantine") and Nova Roma ("New Rome")
All who believe that the revival of the Holy Roman Empire is confine to Europe only, be prepare to be rebuffed.
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. "Imperialism, as defined by the Dictionary of Human Geography, as
"an unequal human and territorial relationship, usually in the form of an empire, based on ideas of superiority and practices of dominance, and involving the extension of authority and control of one state or people over another."
Its economic is based on the exploitation of it 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.
Here is a description of Roman Egypt (30 BC-AD 395) by Ancient Egypt website
Alexander the Great had come to Egypt without striking a blow. Roman troops had pitched battles with Egyptians almost immediately. The Ptolemaic kings had lived in Egypt; the Roman emperors governed from Rome, and their prefects took over the position formerly held in the scheme of government by the Ptolemaic kings.
There was also a drastic change in the climate of leadership. For the Ptolemies had respected the Egyptians and had made friendly gestures, such as bringing back to Egypt some of the sacred objects carried off by the Persians after a military campaign in Asia. The Romans, on the other hand, controlled Egypt by force. They stationed garrisons at Alexandria.
There was no immediate change in the internal organisation of the country. The Ptolemies had proved that, by reason of its isolated position and internal wealth, Egypt was both a natural and a convenient unit for administration. And the Romans were quick to recognise the benefits of interfering, at first, as little as possible with the existing system. The nomes remained the same and the nomarchs collected the taxes.
Egypt maintained the appearance of an Egyptian state, but it was, in fact, no more than a dependancy of Rome. The farmers were pressed to maximum production, wheat shipments to Rome continued, and the prosperity of the country can be traced through the issue of fresh coinage, but still with Greek denominations, originally put into circulation by Augustus (27 BC). But the erosion of the country’s resources was critical. Whereas the Ptolemies had based their system of taxation on the productive capacity of the land, with the revenue mostly spent in Egypt, the Roman system of taxation was not based on productivity and was destined to drain the wealth from Egypt for the benefit of Rome.
The Greeks had adopted Egypt as their own country and had kept alive its identity. Under the Romans, an impoverished Egypt was shorn of glory. The Greeks had re-established the crumbling world of the Nile valley as once more the most important country in the eastern Mediterrranean. Under the Romans, Egypt was no more than a granary of the emperor, treated as his private estate, and a pleasure-ground for the Roman upper classes. They visited Egypt in vast numbers. They came to see the Pyramids of Giza, the Apis bull of Memphis, the ancient city of Abydos, the Colossus of Memnon, and the healing centres at Deir el Bahri and Philae.
Does this not describe all the characteristic of Imperialism? 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. Many bible scholars believe the iron feet represented the empire of Rome and the empire of Constantinople. Many bible scholars agree as history showed, these two empires never expired. They only relocate, one Eastern Europe and the other Western Europe. Lambert Dolphin commentary title "Gentile World Dominion (Daniel 7, 8)" explained it:
The second stage of the Empire of Imperialism was the Two Division Stage. This stage was foreseen by Daniel two. but not by Daniel seven. It is a stage that began in A.D. 364 when Emperor Valentinian divided the Roman Empire into an east and west division.' From that point on. the Empire of Imperialism was divided into an east-west balance of power. Since then. history continued to develop essentially in an east-west balance of power. It began in A.D. 364 with the Western Roman Empire headquartered in Rome and the Eastern Roman Empire in Constantinople. In the original division of the east-west axis, these two cities controlled the balance of power. Since then the centers of the balance of power have shifted. but it has remained an east-west division.
The eastern division of power remained in Constantinople until 1453, when it collapsed in the Turkish invasion. When Constantinople fell. the political rulers. scribes, and scholars fled northward into Russia and infiltrated the government there, setting up a Roman type of government (imperialism). The rulers called themselves Czars, which is Russian for "Caesar." After a while, Russia gave herself the official title of the Third Roman Empire. Eventually. the eastern balance of power was centered in the Soviet Union and included the Communist block of nations. With the collapse of European communism. the eastern balance shifted to Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). At the time of this writing. things are still shifting, with Islam becoming a major eastern power. However, the shifting is still going on and only time will determine how things will settle in the eastern balance of power. [Note: There was an earlier division in A.D. 285 that was short-lived and the empire was reunited under Constantine in A.D. 312-313. The division in A.D. 364 was permanent.]
The western division of power remained in Rome from 364 to 476, when Rome fell. From there, it shifted to France, especially with the power gained by Charlemagne in A.D. 800. He called his domain the Holy Roman Empire of the Frankish Nation. In 962, Otto I of Germany defeated the Franks and set up the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. The leaders named themselves Kaisers, which is German for "Caesar." Since then, especially after World War I. the western balance of power has been centered in the democratic nations of the west.
So then, in 364 the Two Division Stage began and continues to the present day. The centers of the balance of power may shift again, but it will remain essentially an east-west balance until it gives way to the third stage, "The One World Government Stage"
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 geo-political 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.
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. Here is how an historian describes the deportation of the Cherokee:
With Sequoyah’s alphabet, the Cherokee made great cultural advances beginning in the early 1820s. They adopted a constitutional government based on the U.S. constitution and in 1828 the Cherokee Phoenix (Tsa La Gi Tsu lehisanunhi) was published as the first bi-lingual newspaper. Despite this, the Cherokee were removed in 1838.
The Trail of Tears
Between 1790 and 1819 several thousand Cherokee and Creeks migrated west to the “Indian Territory” in Oklahoma. The Creeks were forced out of Georgia in 1827 (“gold fever” was a primary reason), Alabama in 1832, and were removed to the Indian Territory shortly thereafter.
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. All western nations do the same.
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.
Is it not remarkable how the colonization of the North America, South America, the Indies and Africa resemble Daniel description of the fourth Empire domination over them, Roman:
"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."
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. Please read my commentary title "Can we stop the rain from falling?"
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 came to an end 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.
The Eastern feet
The Byzantine Empire was the predominantly Greek-speaking continuation of the Roman Empire during Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Its capital city was Constantinople. Initially the eastern half of the Roman Empire - often called the Eastern Roman Empire. It survived the 5th century fragmentation and collapse of the Western Roman Empire and continued to thrive, existing for an additional thousand years until it fell to the Ottoman Turks in 1453. Its citizens continued to refer to their empire as the Roman Empire. Several events from the 4th to 6th centuries mark the transitional period during which the Roman Empire's east and west divided. In 285, the emperor Diocletian partitioned the Roman Empire's administration into eastern and western halves. Between 324 and 330, Constantine I transferred the main capital from Rome to Byzantium, later known as Constantinople ("City of Constantine") and Nova Roma ("New Rome"). Under, Christianity became the Empire's official state religion and others such as Roman polytheism were proscribed. Finally, under the reign of, the Empire's military and administration were restructured and adopted Greek for official use instead of Latin. In summation, Byzantium is distinguished from ancient Rome proper insofar as it was oriented towards Greek rather than Latin culture, and characterised by Orthodox Christianity rather than Roman polytheism.
The first use of the term "Byzantine" to label the later years of the Roman Empire was in 1557, when the German historian Hieronymus Wolf published his work Corpus Historiæ Byzantinæ, a collection of historical sources. The term comes from "Byzantium", the name of the city of Constantinople before it became Constantine's capital.
In 330, Constantine moved the seat of the Empire to Constantinople, which he founded as a second Rome on the site of Byzantium, a city well-positioned astride the trade routes between East and West. Constantine introduced important changes into the Empire's military, monetary, civil and religious institutions. As regards his economic policies in particular, he has been accused by certain scholars of "reckless fiscality", but the gold solidus he introduced became a stable currency that transformed the economy and promoted development.
Under Constantine, Christianity did not become the exclusive religion of the state, but enjoyed imperial preference, because the emperor supported it with generous privileges. Constantine established the principle that emperors could not settle questions of doctrine on their own, but should summon instead general ecclesiastical councils for that purpose. His convening of both the Synod of Arles and the First Council of Nicaea indicated his interest in the unity of the Church, and showcased his claim to be its head.
The Orthodox Church traces its development back to the earliest church established by St. Paul and the Apostles, through the ancient Roman Empire and its continuation the Byzantine Empire.
As stated by Lambert Dolphin:
The eastern division of power remained in Constantinople until 1453, when it collapsed in the Turkish invasion. When Constantinople fell. the political rulers. scribes, and scholars fled northward into Russia and infiltrated the government there, setting up a Roman type of government (imperialism). The rulers called themselves Czars, which is Russian for "Caesar."
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."
As for the East, prior to April 23, 1906, the Russian Empire had been an absolute monarchy, ruled by an autocratic emperor, who was commonly referred to by his pre-imperial title of "Tsar". Peter 1 abolished the advisory institution in 1721, replacing it with the Governing Senate. The Governing Senate took on an important role in administration and law, and by the late nineteenth century it had evolved into the highest judicial organ in Russia, with all officials and legal institutions under its control. Its decisions as to interpretation of the legal code, unless countermanded by the Tsar, were seen as absolutely authoritative. However, the Senate still remained at all times under the monarch's direct control: he named and dismissed its members, could alter its prerogatives, and was free to overrule its actions. As such, the Ruling Senate was never considered to be a "parliament" in the modern sense.
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 on the Eurasian continent that existed until 1991, 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 King 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. "And shall devour the whole earth, Trample it and break it in pieces." It was not God appointed time to allow a nuclear exchange then.
God plan to keep the east and west apart, therefore, the 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 Russians has as much Roman characteristic. Look at the way in which they fought their war in Chechnya. It was a full-on 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.
The United Nations
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 the east and all Communist country, which include China, Vietnam, Korea, Cuban and more. They also devour and control the economic of the third world countries and willing to war to protect their foreign investments such as Iran. The world is divided in two. Either nations of the world are affiliated with the Eastern Roman Empire or 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. Everybody wants to rule the world according to his or her standard. That by itself is the clay that holds the iron bond together. Ten toes, iron mixed with clay become so weak that a little horn will come out of it and subdue 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
Personality and Characteristic of the Little Horn
The traits of the anti-Christ that will deceive the whole world are not new in history on humankind. There are two well know individual that come to mind, Bonaparte and Hitler. Both have similarities as a person, political leaders and accomplishment. It will astonish you.
In 1801 Bonaparte signed an agreement with the pope, the concordat making Catholicism the dominant but not exclusive religion of French. He had no personal use for religion but understood it political value. "If I govern a nation of Jews," he said, "I shall restore the temple of Salomon."
Religion is excellent stuff to keep common people quiet. Bonaparte rules with a carrot and a stick. He had no patient with those who demand liberty. He rules with an iron hand, crushing anyone who dare speak out against him, making a sham parliament and free elections.
"I have been nourish by reflecting on liberty," said Bonaparte, "but I thrust aside when it obstructed my path."
All he lacks was a crown. He wish to be a king, king of an empire, therefore he made himself Emperor by a senate proclamation, a senate that he established a mirror of the Roman senate, no power but give the impression to the common people that they have a say in the politic of France.
Sanctify by the pope that he brought in to participate to make everything a sacred heir. He slowly laid His own crown on his head. He made himself appointed by God; therefore have authority over all man. "He look like a Caesar on a golden coin," one observed. He dominated France, now he looks for the conquest of Europe. He made himself the modern the Caesar of his time.
"I am the instrument of providence," Napoleons said, "she will use me as long that I accomplish her design, then she will break me like a glass." 
Similarities between Bonaparte and Hitler, they:
· Came from middle class - no monarchy blood line
· Enlisted young in the military
· Rebuilt a nation in chaos and prospered
· Subdued internal revolts
· Abolished the established government, created new institution that favoured their aspiration to reign over all Europe
· Name themselves Emperor (Chancellor) as Caesar - god like above the population, Supreme Commander
· Signed an agreement with a pope, a concordat
· Warred against Britain and Russia and lost
· Became arrogant and self-confidant refusing consultations from their generals
It is my belief that both Bonaparte and Hitler were man influence by a spiritual entity. Bonaparte's god was providence. She was the Goddess of Destiny Seyella or Necessitas, goddess of destiny, the Roman equivalent of Ananke. In the Greek mythology, the god is better know as the Moirai, which watches over the fate assigned to every being by eternal laws so that it might take its course without obstruction. Bonaparte was an intellect and a philosopher. He practised what he preached. He did not believe in the religious institutions but used them. He was an advocate of freedom of religion. Napoleon emancipated Jews, as well as Protestants in Catholic countries and Catholics in Protestant countries, from laws, which restricted them to ghettos, and he expanded their rights to property, worship, and careers. He did not despise the Jews as Hitler did. He was his own god. He loved France and his son, therefore he chose to abdicate rather then to fight to the last resources. Suicidal, he never was.
Hitler had a secret dark side. He became member of the Thule Society; sun worship, which is better known as Satan worship, that is enough to change somebody perception, even to the point to hate Jews who are God Chosen People. Satan is real and the Jews are still God's chosen people with a destiny, which is to prove to the whole world that God is God of all nations and will rule as Jesus among His people and over all nations. Satan attempted to derail God's plan by trying to exterminate all Jews. Now you know what prophecy is all about. It is about God's will to be fulfilled despite all Satan obstruction. Hitler brought his country to total destruction and commited suicide.
When Daniel was explaining the king's dream, he mentioned that at the end of time spiritual entity will also mix with mankind:
"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.
There are two interpretations with "they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another". One is that the kingdoms will not be united as one people, and the second interpretation is man in position of leadership will be influence by spiritual host such as demons. Satan will possess the man that will play the role of the Anti-Christ.
What about Israel?
It is my firm belief (until proven otherwise) that Israel will be part of the 10 kingdoms. Israel was never mentioned in the sequence of the world empires described in the statue dream by King Nebuchadnezzar. Israel since it captivity to Babylon 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.
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, each consisting of 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. It controls the western world market and the World Bank. The United States Federal Reserve is a private institution where it members are major World Banks owners.
"These banks are owned by about a dozen European banking organizations, mostly British, and most notably the Rothschild banking dynasty."
The Federal Reserve System described by Lambert Dolphins
The Federal Reserve System is not a government institution, but a privately held corporation owned by stockholders. The top eight stockholders are Rothschild Banks of London and Berlin; Lazard Brothers Banks of Paris; Israel Moses Seif Banks of Italy; Warburg Bank of Hamburg and Amsterdam; Lehman Brothers Bank of New York; Kuhn, Loeb Bank of New York; Chase Manhattan Bank of New York; and Goldman, Sachs Bank of New York.
Jacob Schiff came to America from Germany with specific directives from Rothschild, the major banking mogul of England and Germany: to gain control of the U.S. money system. He bought into a banking house he could control: Kuen & Loeb. He married Loeb's daughter, Theresa, eventually bought out Kuen's interest, and moved to New York as sole owner. He posed as a philanthropist and man of holiness. He won over J.P. Morgan and others by offering help from Rothschild financing. These people were having a heyday with their businesses, but they were at a point where they needed a lot of capital to expand their businesses. Through loans to these people he gained great financial power. He also had to convince congressmen to enact the Federal Reserve Act. Some say that he used racial strife to plant liberals in congress and control media. The Federal Reserve Act was originally voted down as unconstitutional (Art. 1, Sect. 8 - the power of issuing money and regulating value belongs to Congress). It was later reintroduced in another form, when many opponents of such a system had left for Christmas holidays, and was rammed through Congress on Dec. 23, 1913.
Now this private enterprise can control how much money will be printed and what the interest rates will be. Therefore, the powerful elite can know what to do about buying and selling, etc., while the rest of us are influenced negatively by their policies. They can drive prices up and down. They have an unfair control of what they can do with our fortunes.
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 economic 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. 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 to them. 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 who want to use a different currency were eradicated. Countries such as Iraq, and Libya, and now possibly Iran and Syria might be next. Is this not Imperialist?
Britain Foreign Policy
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. Syria might be just that bait. Britain has no intention to divide the world into ten kingdoms...but the consequence of their audacity of grandiose will be their destruction. They have the audacity to believe that it would survive an all out nuclear war due to the safety provision of their underground bunkers built in many location in Unites States. It is my opinion that The British Empires intention is to attempt the unification of the two feet into one Roman Empire, Their dream of A New World Order.
However, as Bonaparte and Hitler experienced defeat by an Act of God, this attempt 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?
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.
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.
Comment by Jack Kelley from http://gracethrufaith.com/
"Daniel 7 is the description of a vision Daniel had of four kingdoms, and the fourth kingdom had 10 horns (Daniel 7:7). In the vision Daniel asked someone standing there to explain its meaning. In Daniel 7:23-25 he explained that the fourth beast was a kingdom and the 10 horns are 10 kings who will come from it. After them another king will arise. From the description it appears that this other king will be the anti-Christ. Therefore the 10 kings will precede the anti-Christ."
"In Rev. 17:12 an angel told John these 10 kings have not yet received a kingdom. The angel said they will receive authority as kings along with the anti-Christ. Therefore, their reign as kings with authority to rule will coincide with the anti-Christ’s ascension to power, and they will give their power and authority to the anti-Christ. In other words they will make themselves subordinate to him."
"So while the 10 kings will precede the anti-Christ they won’t have any real authority to rule until he comes". 
After the war of Gog and Magog, the entire world is 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"
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.
Chuck Missler offers a detailed study on "The Coming World Leader - The Little Horn. He describes the character this leader would exhibit, and his crusade of bringing the world under his leadership. Here is the link: http://youtu.be/_kpRGKQtMeM.
I will limit my observation of the little horn by using the vision of Daniel in chapter 8. This took place two years after Daniel vision of chapter 7.
3 Then I lifted my eyes and saw, and there, standing beside the river, was a ram which had two horns, and the two horns were high; but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. 4 I saw the ram pushing westward, northward, and southward, so that no animal could withstand him; nor was there any that could deliver from his hand, but he did according to his will and became great.
5 And as I was considering, suddenly a male goat came from the west, across the surface of the whole earth, without touching the ground; and the goat had a notable horn between his eyes. 6 Then he came to the ram that had two horns, which I had seen standing beside the river, and ran at him with furious power. 7 And I saw him confronting the ram; he was moved with rage against him, attacked the ram, and broke his two horns. There was no power in the ram to withstand him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled him; and there was no one that could deliver the ram from his hand.
8 Therefore the male goat grew very great; but when he became strong, the large horn was broken, and in place of it four notable ones came up toward the four winds of heaven. 9 And out of one of them came a little horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land. 10 And it grew up to the host of heaven; and it cast down some of the host and some of the stars to the ground, and trampled them. 11 He even exalted himself as high as the Prince of the host; and by him the daily sacrifices were taken away, and the place of His sanctuary was cast down. 12 Because of transgression, an army was given over to the horn to oppose the daily sacrifices; and he cast truth down to the ground. He did all this and prospered.
13 Then I heard a holy one speaking; and another holy one said to that certain one who was speaking, “How long will the vision be, concerning the daily sacrifices and the transgression of desolation, the giving of both the sanctuary and the host to be trampled underfoot?”
In the same chapter, the angel Gabriel helped Daniel to understand the vision. The ram with two horns is the king of Media and Persia. The male goat with one horn is the king of Greece, Alexander the Great. The four horns that grow after the one horn failed are Alexander's four generals who divided the kingdom among them. Now take notice, in verse 9, over 2336 years go by in a blink of an eye. We find ourselves in our present time. Verse 19 explained when the little horn manifests himself in the latter time of the indignation. It is happening at the end time, "the transgression of desolation". That refer to God's time of judgment toward Israel, His people, The time of Jacob's trouble, better know as the Great Tribulation.
The forth empire, the leg of iron is not mentioned in this chapter, neither is the feet of iron mixed with clay. As explained previously the iron feet was Rome and the iron mixed with clay is the present Roman Empire divided in two super power, the Western nations, and Russia. The little horn comes out after the end of a nuclear exchange between the West and Russia. Trample it (the world) and break it (the world) in pieces." Daniel 7:23. Ten empires, ten toes (iron mixed with clay) will scramble to bring stability in the world but will struggle at great lost. That is the instant when the little horn will make his appearance.
The little horn origin is Roman. Verse 9 explained it;
"And out of one of them came a little horn which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the Glorious Land."
That can only indicate that the little horn comes from Northwest of Jerusalem. It does not necessary mean that he is coming from Italy, it might only mean that it is Roman origin. Remember the Roman Empire is divided in two and is global. If it is a geographical location, it could only be a surviving neutral European nation. The little horn is not a toes consisting of iron and clay, the little horn is a kingdom, the kingdom of the anti-Christ who speak pompous words. There are only two neutral countries in Europe. They are Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Between the two, they are known to be the world greatest tax haven and the World Bank. The world gold is held between those two countries.
In Daniel 7:7-8, it instructed us that the little horn would subdue 3 kingdoms:
“After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words.
Those three kingdoms are: one toward the south which on a modern map describes the nation of North Africa, that would be Tunisia, Libya, Egypt and Sudan, the second kingdom is toward the east, which can only be Greece, Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran, finally the third kingdom the Glorious land, consisting of Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, and Jordan. That would explain why the little horn would easily confirm a covenant with these three kingdoms for one week, Daniel 9:27. In addition, allows the Jewish temple to be built.
"Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week, he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate."
Remember Bonaparte quotation?
In 1801 Bonaparte signed an agreement with the pope, the concordat making Catholicism the dominant but not exclusive religion of French. He had no personal use for religion but understood it political value.
"If I govern a nation of Jews," he said, "I shall restore the temple of Salomon."
The same ruse will be again used on Israel.
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?”
c u @ d rapture...soon
