|FOUR GREAT BEASTS OF DANIEL SEVEN|
Great Age of Pisces
to 2012 CE
| Daniel dreams of four great
beasts that rise up from the Sea [the Great Age of Pisces] that become
great dominating powers upon the face of the earth. Although their
dominion is ultimately taken away, the lives and dominion of the first
three beasts are prolonged until the esteemed Ancient of Days comes and
takes ITS position in the heavens.|
The four beasts were altered or changed from one another. The word is written as 'diverse' indicating different. However, the Aramaic word in Daniel for 'diverse' is SHNA', pronounced SHEN-AW', [see Strong's Concordance #8133 & #8132], which means changed or altered. It is my opinion that these beasts represent the same entity or power only changed or altered in appearance and name - same controlling force, same ruling people.
The fourth beast at the end of days would be thrown into the fiery flames at the throne of the Ancient of Days. The Ancient of Days is not whom you might expect. I believe it is referring to a planet that has a long wide orbit.
THE LION BEAST|
Rises to exaltation - self propelled
Rome - The Late Republic
147 BCE - 30 BCE
The first beast resembled a LION that took a lion’s portion of power and dominion. It ruled as if it were the King of beasts while holding itself up in great exaltation. This beastly lion had eagle’s wings, which were, according to Daniel’s dream, spread out wide, lifting the beast up from the Earth. The lion-beast was then made to stand up on its feet as a man and a man’s heart was given unto it. Theological wisdom has always given the identity of this lion-beast to that of the Babylonian Empire, which reigned from 625 BCE to 539 BCE. However, that date would be too early for this beast as prophecy indicates that these beasts come up out of the Sea, which refers to the water sign Pisces and to be more exact - the Great Age of Pisces. The Age of Pisces began abt 148 BCE and lasts for approximately 2160 years. It ends in 2012 or thereabout. Furthermore, the lives of all four beasts are still in existence when the Ancient of Days returns albeit their dominion will have reached a powerless state at that time.
The lion beast represents the ROMAN EMPIRE who were the same peoples as the earlier Assyrians. The Germanic tribes, i.e., the Teutonics, became the eagle's wings giving it the lift it needed to rise above all other nations upon the Earth. Just as the eagle represents a great bird of prey, the Germanic tribes preyed on established races of people for whatever they needed or wanted. These Germanic peoples became interwoven into the Roman Empire so uniquely that together they became a unified beast, which eventually became the ‘Holy’ Roman Empire - the EAGLE'S wings.
By 148 BCE, only the Romans remained as an important power in the Mediterranean area. This was the beginning of the Age of Pisces. Roman victory over the Corinthians occurred at the Battle of Corinth in 146 BCE.
below how the name 'Rome' in Hebrew means 'lifted up' with self pride and
self propelled importance. A Luciferian style of exaltation. This is
exactly what Rome did from its beginning. The Vatican represents Rome
As the lion beast was lifted up off the Earth with these Germanic eagle wings it took on a new look, which was the look of a man. Constantine, in 306 CE, was the man who ‘lifted’ the Eastern wing of Rome up off the Earth. (The pattern for these two wings also parallel the two legs of Nebuchadnezzar’s great image). Constantine gave the Empire/beast a heart of a man; which was the religion of the great beast. This pulsating [man’s] heart gave life to the beast to carry on until the Ancient of Days takes it's position, which is sometime after the close of the Age (of Pisces), and into the onset of the Age of Aquarius. The beast not only stood upright like a man, but it had a man’s heart as well. At the heart of the religion was a cruicified savior who still lived in the minds of its members.
|(Note: Cain’s descendants became the Assyrians and Babylonians, who later became known as the Romans. Keep in mind the 'mark' put on Cain - we will come back to this mark later ! The tribe of Dan, the Germanic peoples, became interwoven with the Romans. So, again we have the ancient Assyrians/Romans exercising self-appointed control and exalted tactics over the peoples known as the tribe of Dan, i.e., Germans. Together these actors play out this pattern in the Great Age of Pisces - patterns always repeat.|
|Read some amazing admonishments of wonder-stricken
ambassadors, who entered the city of Constantinople for the first time (around 1000 AD.). |
The amazing city of Constantinople was called the ‘Heavenly Jerusalem.’ Emperor Constantine was also referred to, and known as, ‘Christ’s vicar on Earth and his co-ruler’. It was said that Constantine was crowned by God himself. This Eastern wing/leg of the Roman Byzantine Empire had surely been lifted up off the Earth and was given heavenly status by it's rulers. However, the Western wing/leg had been gravely wounded by Barbaric tribes when they sacked and destroyed the Roman Empire in 476 CE., but later, however, the beast was again revived by Germanic tribes, and this leg became the infamous ‘Holy’ Roman Empire. Constantine the Great, as he was called, was heir to all rights and powers of the Roman Empire; and was also called the imitator of Christ.“We knew not whether we were in heaven or on earth,’..............and also, ‘For on earth there is no such splendor or such beauty, and we are at a loss how to describe it.’ And still a leader of a Latin army preparing to capture the city for the first time had this to say:.....’those who had never seen Constantinople marveled greatly at it, for they could not conceive that the world held so mighty a city, when they saw the height of the walls, the great towers enclosing it all around, the splendid palaces, the lofty churches (the number of which was so great that no one could believe it who had not seen it with their own eyes), and the length and breadth of the city that lorded over all others. And know ye that there was no man so bold that his flesh did not creep thereat, and this was no wonder.....’.
Constantine was the man who brought Rome’s great conversion to early Christianity about 300 AD. The ‘cross’ became his symbol. ‘In this sign (the cross) go and conquer’. This was the motto written upon the banners as they rode into battle during the Crusades. This is quite ironic too, because it was also the symbol used in ancient Assyria, Chaldee, and Babylon as well. The cross became the symbol of identity for the Roman lion beast after it was lifted up off the Earth - they held themselves in exaltation.
| In 529 CE, Justinian ordered ALL
people to become Christian, and in 534 CE came the completion of
‘Justinian’s Law Code.’ The Eastern wing of the Roman Empire,
with its religion keeping its heart robustly beating, tried to
eradicate the faith of the Jewish people, along with the twelve tribes
of Israel, from off the face
of the Earth. Rome had hoped, as the Assyrians and Babylonians
previously, to wipe out everything that was Hebrew; all Jewish Sabbath
days and traditions were a menace to them, and they had hoped to diminish the
importance of the Hebrew God by appointing a new god a place of
equal, if not higher, position. This beast went so far as to allow the
Jewish God, YHWH, an equal place in their TRINITY of characters. The
idea of a ‘trinity of divinity’ came from ancient Babylon and Assyria, and
was carried over into the new religion at Rome. Those who disapproved were slain in a most brutal way.|
The movement of this Roman religion, called Christianity, became so powerful that it moved across time like a great [Piscean] flood, reaching all corners of the Earth. It garnered strength and longevity, by strict enforcement through fear, murder, inquisitions, and the nearly complete, destruction of truth. Rome had previously burned the largest library on Earth, which was in Alexandria, Egypt. Burned to the logic that is echoed in many unintelligent voices today, 'If the contents of these books agree with the Holy Book, then they are redundant. If it disagrees, then they are undesirable. In either case, they should be consigned to the flames'.
By the end of the Age of Pisces, this LION beast, with wings of an EAGLE, will have enticed, deceived, stolen the souls of, murdered, corrupted souls, and bought his way into the hearts and minds of millions of Israelite [Hebrew] peoples, as well as thousands of other cultures and nations of the world. Only a remnant of Israelites will pass the test of time and avoid the grip of this monster beast. This remnant will ultimately become the saints [or the chosen ones who have not lost their soul to the beast], such are the saints mentioned in the book of Daniel.
Oh, that regal LION, considered the king of the animal world. Is there any animal that can ever hope to match the lion’s majestic reign? They say the beginnings of ancient ‘Rome’ began about 600 BCE. This was about the time that Assyria was destroyed [612 BCE]. Most researchers have overlooked this co-incidence, and the fact that the early Romans were actually the ancient Assyrians.
"Upon Ashurbanipal's death in 627 BC, the empire began to disintegrate rapidly. The Scythians, Cimmerians and Medes [perhaps the Germanic tribes??] immediately penetrated the borders, marauding as far as Egypt, while Babylonia again became independent; Ashurbanipal's successor, Ashur-etil-ilani, seems to have exercised little real power. The Babylonian king Nabopolassar, along with Cyaxares the Mede, finally destroyed Nineveh in 612 BC, and Assyria fell." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assyria

|Julius Caesar wished to be master of the world, he wanted Rome and all mankind to feel his exalted power. He was born in the lap of luxury amongst the rich. "The singular force and grandeur of his character can never be overlooked. His sharp insight, his sagacious, comprehensive and practical views - his boldness of conception, his indomitable perserverance, his unswerving dicision, and his power over armies, popular assemblies, and men of genius, rank, and fame prove him to have belonged to the highest order of lmen of great capacity; and it is impossible to survey his actions without a felling approaching to the awful. Neither was he wanting in the virtues which the Romans admired, and which indeed all mankind admire. He was sober, he was generous. While distinguished by the valour of a soldier, and the impetuosity of a conqueror, he was not cruel; he declared that he had more pleasure in acts of clemency than in those exciting scenes through which he was hurried by what he requared as the stern necessity of war."

Daniel 7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. '
The inhabitants of the British Isles, at the time of the Roman invasions, were mainly Celtic, Bretons, Picts, and Cornish. The Anglos and the Saxons came to the Isles around 400 CE. All these people were descendants of the twelve tribes of Israel.
- 43 CE - Claudius orders the Roman invasion of Britain
- 60/61 CE - Boudica, queen of the Iceni, leads a rebellion that devastates Britain
- 71/84 CE - Pacification of Britain, conquest of modern Wales and Scotland
- 269 CE - Postumus is killed. Victorinus proclaimed emperor in Gaul and Britain.
- 397 CE - Saint Ninian evangelizes Picts in Scotland
- 432 CE - St Patrick begins mission in Ireland
- 563 CE - Columba goes to Scotland to evangelize Picts
- 550 CE - St. David converts Wales, crucifix introduced
1) the three ribs could indicate three Jewish Princesses (rib=woman=princess), who were daughters of King Zedekiah, the last acting King of Judah that Jeremiah led to safety in Ireland. These Jewish Princesses would eventually became Celtic Queens - of Ireland, Scotland and Breton.NOTE: Culturally and socially, the Anglo-Saxons once had the intent to ‘devour’ Wales, its language and it’s people, and had already done just this to the Picts - sound familiar? The Welsh, as well as the Picts, could have actually been the ancient Jewish people who were taken to the Isles by Jeremiah. Prophesy indicates that 'Ephraim' and 'Judah' would always have a little rift thing going on between them, while still maintaining a blood kinship amongst the tribes. Let's hope they all got things worked out for the good by now. The following verse from prophesy was intended for these peoples of the British Isles:
2) the inhabitants of the Isles were distinguished as thus: Cornish, Bretons, and Welsh = Brythonic Celts; Irish, Scots, Manx = Goidelic Celts; and the Anglo-Saxon peoples. The three ribs could indicate these three groups of peoples. Since the evangelization occurred after the Anglo-Saxons emigrated to the Isles.
3) the 3rd possible meaning of the three ribs could indicate the territories of Ireland, Scotland, and England/Wales.
"THE JEALOUSY OF EPHRAIM SHALL DEPART, AND THOSE WHO HARASS JUDAH SHALL BE CUT OFF; EPHRAIM SHALL NOT BE JEALOUS OF JUDAH, AND JUDAH SHALL NOT HARASS EPHRAIM."Celtic tribes, who were part of the northern tribes of Israel [chiefly representing the tribe of Joseph], first arrived on the British Isles, and other sections of Europe, around 600 BCE, when the downfall of Assyria had taken place. The term ‘British’ once referred to the Brythonic (Britannic Welsh) people. Most Anglo-Saxon [ English ] immigrations started after the Roman military withdrawal from the Isles - around 410 AD. The Hebrew word for ‘covenant’ is ‘beriyth’ or ‘berith’ = Breton, and the Hebrew word for ‘man’ is ‘iysh’ or ‘ish’ = British. These Celtic and Breton people are, without a doubt, the covenant people of Israel. Much blood was shed for Celtic freedom, but eventually the religion of the beast managed to ‘devour’ much of the culture that was truly Brythonic/Goidelic, and replaced it with the religion of the ‘un-Holy’ Roman Empire, or at this point, the bear beast.
Daniel 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. '
Daniel 7:7 After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. '
Daniel 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
'Daniel 7:9 I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment was white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne was like the fiery flame, and his wheels as burning fire. '
Daniel 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened. '
Daniel 7:11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame. '
Daniel 7:20 And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.
Daniel 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; '
Daniel 7:22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.'
Daniel 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon Earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole Earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.'
Daniel 7:24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
Daniel 7:24 And the ten horn out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
DAN 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
DAN 7:26 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end.
DAN 7:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
DAN 7:28 Hitherto is the end of the matter. As for me Daniel, my cogitations much troubled me, and my countenance changed in me: but I kept the matter in my heart.
"The National Government regards the two Christian confessions (i.e. Catholicism and Protestantism) as factors essential to the soul of the German people. ... We hold the spiritual forces of Christianity to be indispensable elements in the moral uplift of the German people."Hitler, and his Nazi Army killed more than 12 million people (have of them Khazer Jews), during his reign of terror. Hitler's rampage of murder and the Jewish Holocaust during the 1930 -1940's has even made the Middle Ages, with their Crusades and Inquisitions, look like a Sunday School picnic in comparison, because so many were killed in such a short term of only 12.25 years.
And again, "I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so."
He shall subdue three kings - not referring to the beast's horns: "Nazi Germany signed a treaty (Tripartite Pact) with Imperial Japan and Fascist Italy during World War II. The three nations, collectively referred to as the Axis Powers, or the axis of evil, formed an alliance, and fought against the Allies of World War II, which were led at first by the United Kingdom and, after 1941, also by the Soviet Union and the United States." source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_Germany

The phrase, VICARIUS FILII DEI, was prominent in Catholic Canon Law, and quotes the Donation of Constantine, which reads [in Latin]:
Sicut B. Petrus in terris VICARIUS FILII DEI esse videtur constitutus, ita et Pontifices, qui ipsius principis apostolorum gerunt vices, principatus potestatem amplius quam terrena imperialis nostrae serenitatis mansuetudo habere videtur, conscessam a nobis nostroque imperio obtineant...
As the blessed Peter is seen to have been constituted vicar of the Son of God on the earth, so the Pontiffs who are the representatives of that same chief of the apostles, should obtain from us and our empire the power of a supremacy greater than the clemency of our earthly imperial serenity is seen to have conceded to it, choosing that same chief of the apostles and his vicars to be our constant intercessors with God.
Source: Donation of ConstantineDuring the Dark Ages when the powers of darkness exercised the greatest physical power, one could not buy, sell, own, or even survive, without confessing devotion to this beast's religion. Today, the powers of darkness have taken on the appearance of a 'lamb', as they have learned they can 'catch more flies with honey than with vinegar'. The atrocities of 'convert or die', through horrendous torturous death, may not take place presently; but holding souls in bondage, through fear, does take place across the world - this is wrong and stems from the powers of darkness. Learn the difference between the Spirit of Light, and the Powers of Evil [darkness] -, which may surprise you, and when you consider the identifying traits - it gives a renewed perspective of all things. The beasts listed above have all the traits and patterns of the powers of darkness - nothing 'pure and benevolent' can come from the foundations of darkness and evilness.
1) The LION - Exalts itself into a high and mighty position - AS IF by divine authority
2) The BEAR - Uses military strength to capture, devastate, and control, any and all nations
3) The LEOPARD - Increases power by adding new and revised 'branches' to please a wider membership, with the mask of a 'Lamb', or softer appearance
4) The MOST HORRIBLE BEAST - Commits genocide, executes, destroys, murders, eliminates, and plunders
