SLEEPING GIANTS NOW AWAKENING!
The Bible a “living” book has been hibernating! It’s has started waking up. And, as promised by Daniel, the book is opening up to the WISE. Are you ready for what’s coming?
FOUR MAJOR ANCIENT EMPIRES IN MODERN TIMES?
Just in front of us, four major ancient empires are to reassert their power and position in the world. These empires were first explained to the prophet Daniel. Daniel was in Babylon as a captive at the time.
Daniel was given visions of the future. Those visions showed Daniel the future of FOUR MAJOR Empires that were to rule, and exist, simultaneously along with the end time nation of Israel.
These four empires were shown to Daniel in the form of a statue made of different metals and materials. Plus, he was shown a different perspective of these empires through symbolic “beasts.” Needless to say, even Daniel, when given these visions, did not clearly understand them. And, needless to say, modern Bible prophecy interpreters do not clearly understand these visions. Although, they claim they do. But, they don’t.
Clearing Up Important Misunderstandings!
The most drastic and destructive error made by modern “interpreters” of Daniel is the false assumption that the Fourth Beast of Daniel is the “revived” Holy Roman Empire. As one writer on the history of war said, “The Holy Roman Empire” was neither holy, nor an empire. Frankly, it was a piece of history grasped onto by ignorant men who could find no other example that “fit” Daniel’s prophecy in their day. And, their error was passed down to us today. There are other problems with the modern and typical explanation of Daniel’s visions.
Another major misunderstanding is this fact. There were/are time “gaps” between these empires. They did not follow one another immediately. Many years separated these empires.
The cause of these gaps is really quite simple. If one were to properly and closely read Daniel, one would discover that each kingdom existed only as long as a specific KING was ruling within the kingdom. For instance, Nebuchadnezzar. When he died another person replaced him as king, and Babylon continued on for several more years. However, the “BEAST”, described to Daniel in vision, did not continue after Nebuchadnezzar died. It stopped with his death. So, from his death until the Medo-Persian Empire conquered Babylon there was a time gap. The same is true with the Greek Empire that followed. And, there was a very long time gap between Greece and the final, or fourth Beast to show up in our day.
Clearing Up the Forth Beast
For centuries now, pundits have mistakenly taught that the Roman Empire was the Fourth Beast of Daniel. It wasn’t, and it isn’t. But, how could that be?
Let’s look at something interesting. What Empire conquered Israel first? It was not the Babylonian Empire. But, when Daniel was given these visions he was living in the time right after BABYLON conquered Israel. In other words, way after the first conquest of Israel. That first conquest was by Assyria. It disappeared from history for awhile. It was later rediscovered, and it our day it is to be “revived.” In other words, the FIRST beast, is to become the LAST beast of Daniel, the Fourth Beast.
When Daniel was shown the Father’s plan in visions everyone assumes that plan began with Babylon because Daniel mentions Babylon first in his writings. However, the actual plan began BEFORE Daniel went into captivity. That plan began with the ASSYRIAN Empire! So what, one might say. If so, they will miss the whole point. Look, when Daniel was show the visions YHWH began with where Daniel was in time, and began with Babylon. BUT, notice carefully what happens when the visions finally get to the Fourth Beast.
What is the characteristic “label” used by those who teach that the Fourth Beast is the Roman Empire? Why, it is the use of the word “revived.” So, if one reads the description of the Fourth Beast carefully, what is being described? Why the ancient Assyrian Empire, the first conqueror of Israel before Babylon. Again, read the description of Daniel’s Fourth Beast, and then read a description of the ancient Assyrian Empire. The first to use a certain kind of metal for weapons. Look it up and read it yourself.
So, what “revival” does the Fourth Beast actually represent? Why, the revival of the ancient ASSYRIAN Empire in OUR DAY just ahead of us. In fact, it has already started. Just do an Internet search and you will find something interesting growing in northern Iraq. The old borders of the Assyrian Empire.
WHERE ARE WE NOW?
Although the above is a very short explanation, it tells us what to really look for now. And, not surprisingly, prophecy begins to make sense and all the puzzle pieces start fitting. Not so with the old erroneous teaching that the Fourth Beast is the “revived” Holy Roman Empire. This leaves us with a miraculous and unbelievable event to happen in the next 12-13 years.
As Daniel shows, ALL FOUR of these Beasts are to be in the end days together. They did not go away just because their ancient collapse ended them. Except for Assyria. No, they are to be here, all four, growing and functioning at the same time as MAJOR players on the world scene. So, here’s the miraculous and unbelievable coming:
Babylon is now growing and WILL become a MAJOR world power in the Middle East, right along side of —
The Medo-Persian Empire, which is now in existence right along side of Babylon. It is growing and will become a MAJOR world power right along with—
Greece. Greece is now going through a big economic crisis. However, she will come out of it, and become a MAJOR world player right along with Babylon and Medo-Persia. So, here we have three of the Beasts. The Fourth Beast is now rising just to the North of Babylon. It is the “revival” of the ancient Assyrian Empire.
As Daniel showed, these four “beasts” would exist simultaneously in the end days, along with modern Israel. And, this is now obvious, they do. With the final step being the appearance of the Fourth Beast, and the man to rule over it eventually, “the Assyrian.”
Who are these “beasts” today? Well, you should already know, but just in case you don’t, here they are:
Iraq, Iran, Greece, and the area of the Kurds in northern Iraq. The FOUR BEASTS are now going through their transitions and EXPANSION into world powers, just as prophesied. This is why I have called this 14 year cycle we are in the EXPANSION cycle.
In fact, for one example, Iran, in spite of its present anti-Israel President, will be a very active player in FUNDING the rebuilding of the Temple in Jerusalem!
Right now, friends, you are witnessing the greatest transition of power the world has ever seen. America and the West are in massive decline. And, who is really going to replace them? Surprise, here they are:
Israel, along with Iraq, Iran, Greece, Assyria, and six other Mid-East nations are going to UNITE into a confederation that will astound the world.
From this confederation will come the greatest economic system the world has ever seen. All other powers, will center in the Middle East, specifically in Jerusalem. Economic, legal, trade, education, science, etc. etc. We are now in an “axial power” shift. The last, greatest, and final axial period man will ever see before the return of the Messiah.
WATCH! Keep your eyes open and your mind alert. Keep up with world events, and you will see the above happen right before your eyes. In fact, it has already started, and the WISE can already see it. Can you?
