Four Major Players In The Last Days
The Divided Kingdom In Daniel 2
Revelation 13, 17, 12, & Daniel 7
The Image And The Beast
Two Symbols Reveal The Kingdom That Exists When Jesus Returns
The events, kingdoms, and persons on this website are based on descriptions in the Bible. References are given so that you can check them out.
Since the Bible is centered on the Jewish people and their nation of Israel, the kingdoms that are represented are in existence when Israel is in existence. No kingdom is recognized from 70 AD when Jerusalem was destroyed and Jews were dispersed until 1948 when Israel began again.
There are two symbols that identify the kingdom that exists when Jesus returns to set up the kingdom of God. They are the image in Daniel 2 and the beast with 10 horns in Revelation 17, 12, 13, and Daniel 7.
The feet on the image reveals that the last secular kingdom is made up of two kingdoms working together. The two main international kingdoms that are working together are the United Nations and the European Union, the EU@UN.
The last kingdom is represented by the seventh and eighth heads on the beast. They are the same kingdom, but the seventh head is wounded and becomes the eighth head when it is healed. We seem to be in the wounding period. The eighth head lasts for 3-1/2 years. Alexander the Great is the large horn on the male goat in Daniel 8. Therefore the 10 horns on the beast are symbols of military authority. The 10 horns are therefore the 10 rotating members of the UN Security Council. Easy

THE IMAGE IN DANIEL 2
KINGDOM OF GOD The Stone That Crushed The Image
King Nebuchadnezzar's Dream
31 “You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. 32 This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, 33 its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.
The Kingdom of God Replaces The Former Kingdoms
34 You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. 35 Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.
1 - Babylon Is The First Kingdom - Gold
36 “This was the dream; now we will tell its interpretation before the king.
37 “You, O king, are the king of kings, to whom the God of heaven has given the kingdom, the power, the strength and the glory;
38 and wherever the sons of men dwell, or the beasts of the field, or the birds of the sky, He has given them into your hand
and has caused you to rule over them all.
You are the head of gold.
2 - Persia - Silver
39 “After you there will arise another kingdom inferior to you,
3 - Greece - Bronze
then another third kingdom of bronze, which will rule over all the earth.
4 - Rome - Iron
40 “Then there will be a fourth kingdom as strong as iron; inasmuch as iron crushes and shatters all things, so, like iron that breaks in pieces, it will crush and break all these in pieces.
5 - EU@UN - Iron & Clay
The Iron (EU) And Clay (UN) Combine In the Seed of Men (United Nations)
But Do Not Adhere To One Another (They Remain Separate Kingdoms)
41 “In that you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, it will be a divided kingdom; but it will have in it the toughness of iron, inasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with common clay. 42 As the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of pottery, so some of the kingdom will be strong and part of it will be brittle. 43 And in that you saw the iron mixed with common clay, they will combine with one another in the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, even as iron does not combine with pottery.
The Kingdom of God
44 In the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which will never be destroyed, and that kingdom will not be left for another people; it will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms, but it will itself endure forever." - Dan. 2:31-44 NASB

1945 - The UN began.
Development of the EU.
1974 - The EC became an observer at the UN.
1993 - The EU came into being.

2011 - The EU became an enhanced observer at the UN
THE BEAST With Seven Heads And 10 HORNS
Heads (Kingdoms) - Horns - Military Authorities
FOUR REFERENCES TO THE BEAST WITH SEVEN HEADS (KINGDOMS)
AND 10 HORNS (MILITARY LEADERS)
THE 10 HORNS ARE IN THE LAST SECULAR KINGDOM
The Two Beasts (Kingdoms) In Revelation 13 Are The Two Kingdoms
That Make Up The Divided Kingdom In Daniel 2 - The EU@UN
like a leopard: Germany was split in tow parts for a while. The EU@UN will be wounded for a while.
has the mouth of a lion: The main language used is English.
and the feet of a bear. It will be involved in the Mid-East just as Russia is now.
Since Revelation was written when Paul was on the Greek isle of Patmos, the beast
(kingdom) from the sea represents the international kingdom that is not based on European
soil - the United Nations. The seven heads are seven kingdoms. The last kingdom is the EU@UN.
The ten horns are the ten rotating members of the UN Security Council.
Since this international kingdom is based on European soil. It is the European Union.
Revelation 17 is particularly important because it reveals that there are two phases of the last secular kingdom before the return of Jesus. There is a wounding between the two phases. We seem to be in the beginning of the wounding period of the EU@UN. The second phase lasts for only 3-1/2 years.

He Causes Everyone To Take The Mark of The Beast (Antichrist)
Do Not Take The Mark

The Scarlet Woman (Vatican City In Rome\
Sits On The Scarlet Beast (Satan)
17 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. 5 And on her forehead a name was written:
BABYLON THE GREAT,
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH
6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement. - Rev. 17:1-6 NKJV (1982)
The Harlot Sits On Seven Mountains (Hills) - Rome In Ancient Literature
9 “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.
10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. 11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”
The Harlot (Roman Catholic Church) Is In Many Nations
15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” Rev. 17:9-19 NKJV (1982)
Satan Is Going To Perdition (Punishment)
7 Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 8 and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 9 They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. - Rev. 20:7-10 NKJV (1982)

FOUR GREAT BEASTS CAME UP FROM THE SEA
In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head while on his bed. Then he wrote down the dream, telling the main facts.
2 Daniel spoke, saying, “I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. 3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.
1 - THE LION - THE UNITED KINGDOM
4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
2 - THE BEAR - RUSSIA
5 “And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’
3 - THE LEOPARD - GERMANY
6 “After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.
4 - THE FOURTH BEAST - The EU@UN
IT HAD 10 HORNS
THE LITTLE HORN, THE ANTICHRIST, CAME UP AMONG THE 10 HORNS
7 “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.
8 I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them,
THREE OF THE FIRST HORNS WERE REMOVED
THE US, RUSSIA, AND CHINA - PERMANENT MEMBERS OF THE UN SECURITY COUNCIL
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. - Daniel 7:1-8 NKJV (1982)
THE COURT - JUDGMENT OF THE FOUR BEASTS
GOD THE FATHER WAS SEATED, THE COURT WAS SEATED, AND THE BOOKS WERE OPENED
9 “I watched till thrones were put in place, and the Ancient of Days was seated. His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, Its wheels a burning fire;
10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, and the books were opened.
THE FOURTH BEAST WAS SLAIN, ITS BODY DESTROYED AND GIVEN TO THE BURNING FLAME
11 “I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame.
THE DOMINION OF THE FIRST THREE KINGDOMS WAS TAKEN AWAY
BUT THEY WERE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE FOR A WHILE
12 As for the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time.
JESUS WAS GIVEN A KINGDOM THAT WILL NOT PASS AWAY
THAT ALL PEOPLE, NATIONS, AND LANGUAGES SHOULD SERVE HIM
13 “I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven!
He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him.
14 Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away,and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed. Daniel 7:1-14 NKJV (1982)

JESUS SAID THAT THE ONE WHO COMES TO HIM
HE WILL BY NO MEANS CAST OUT
37 "All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. 38 For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. 39 This is the will of the Father who sent Me, that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up at the last day. 40 And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.” - John 6:37-40 NKJV (1982)
NO ONE COMES TO THE FATHER EXCEPT THROUGH JESUS
6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.” - John 14:6-7 NKJV (1982)
Let Us Therefore Come Boldly To The Throne of Grace
14 Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. 15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. - John 14:6-7 NKJV (1982)
If The World Hates You, You Know That It Hated Jesus Before It Hated You
18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. 22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates Me hates My Father also. 24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. 25 But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’ - John 15:18-25 NKJV (1982)
Every Spirit That Confesses That Jesus Christ Has Come In The Flesh Is Of God
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. - 1 John 4:1-6 NKJV (1982)
Give No Regard To Mediums And Familiar Spirits
31 ‘Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God. - Lev. 19:31 NKJV (1982)
