Great Age of Pisces
148 BCE
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 four great beasts prophesied in the book of Daniel reveal a pattern of aggressive power and control exercised over the Israelites. This same pattern can fit other world powers other than the 'beasts' explained in the following article, albeit, the beasts depicted below are the powers that have made the greatest impact on the people known as Israelites during the Great Age of Pisces. Powerful paralleled beasts have existed, do exist, and have the potential to become quite dangerous, not only physically but spiritually. Biblical prophecy for the most part pertains to the people known as Hebrews or the ancient Israelites. It is important to recognize the patterns, learn from past history, investigate and research all things as to their origin and fallibility.  If it takes thousands of years for prophecy to come true then it is not really prophecy but merely pattern prediction from observance! Anyone can state or write prophetic words and sometime in the next 2000 years or so, it will at some point come true, especially if one knows the cycles of the past. History has a way of repeating the same patterns over again when given enough time.


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.

In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions in his head while lying in his bed: he then wrote down the dream and told the sum of the matters. Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night and behold, the four winds of the heaven rushed forth upon the great sea [Great Age of Pisces]. And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse [changed and altered] one from another.
1) The first was like a lion and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the Earth and made to stand upon its feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.

2) And behold another beast, a second likened unto a bear, and it raised up itself on one side and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between it's teeth. And they said unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.
3) After this I beheld and lo another beast 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.
4) 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. I consdidered 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.
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit... Daniel chapter 7 1-9
Notice 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 today.

7311 ruwm pronounced 'room' primitive root; to be high actively, to rise or raise (in various applications, literally or figuratively):--bring up, exalt (self), extol, give, go up, haughty, heave (up), (be, lift up on, make on, set up on, too) high(-er, one), hold up,levy, lift(-er) up, (be) lofty, (X a-)loud, mount up, offer (up), + presumptuously, (be) promote(-ion), proud, set up, tall(-er), take (away, off, up), breed worms.
7312 ruwm {room}; from 7311; (literally) elevation or (figuratively) elation:--haughtiness, height, X high.
7313 ruwm (Aramaic) corresponding to 7311; (figuratively only):-- extol, lift up (self), set up.
7315 rowm rome from 7311; elevation, i.e. (adverbially) aloft:--on high.
4514. Rhomaios hro-mah'-yos from 4516; Romaean, i.e. Roman (as noun):--Roman, of Rome.
4516. Rhome hro'-may from the base of 4517; strength; Roma, the capital of Italy:--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.).
     “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.....’.
     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.
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 had done 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."
Julius Caesar
b. 100 BCE
d. 44 BCE
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." "Life of Julius Caesar" Leavitt, Trow & Co, 1846

exercises its military strength
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 second beast resembled a BEAR,  which raised up on it's one side, and between it’s teeth were three ribs.  ‘Arise and devour much flesh’, was the command of the bear-like beast. This second beast resembling a bear again portrays Rome as a military force. The beasts are prophesied in their relationship to the Hebrew peoples and the northern tribes of Israel were mainly in the northern Isles, i.e. Ireland, Scotland, Breton, and Wales.  In 43 CE, and again in 60 CE,  this bear beast devastates Britain, then the home of the Bretons and Celtic peoples.  Around 80 CE, the successful conquest of Wales and Scotland had taken place. The eventual hope was not only to gain the territory, but to also convert every man, woman, and child to their beastly religion, and in 400 CE the evangelizing had begun with the Picts in Scotland [see time line chart below].
     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.

     There are three possibly meanings to the 'three ribs', which the bear had in it's mouth, and I will list all three and let you decide as all three are relevant.
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.
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.
     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:
     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.
     Why a BEAR beast?  A bear likes to eat fish, and as crusaders and evangelists, Rome became 'fishers of men'. To avoid being ‘devoured’ by a bear, other than climbing the tallest tree, is to PLAY DEAD, which could also say - lay low and don't become overtaken by the religion of the beast - let it go in one ear and out the other.
     The Celtic and Bretons, have been ‘playing dead’ without even really realizing it for over 2500 years. They have ‘lost’, from their hearts and minds, their original identity -  the descendants of Ephraim and Manasseh.  Once this identity has been revealed to the entire world, the Celtic people, along with the other tribes, will be cursed and hated, much like the Jews have always been - already we see this happening in today's news, as Arab countries show their hatred for America, Great Britain, and Israel.  [See for the full identity of all the lost tribes of Israel.
     What about this bear-beast rising up on one side?  This portrays the bear beast, while maintaining it's feet in Rome, raises up in a northerly direction, and with it's paw, it seeks to devour the British Isles with its military strength.

grows additional heads and spots
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’s vision now continues with a third LEOPARD-like beast, which had upon its back, four wings of a bird or fowl.  The leopard beast now has four heads, and dominion was given to the leopard beast. This leopard beast represents another aspect of our original Rome beast - and now with wings of a bird the beast soars across continents, seas and time. The four heads represent four new 'branches' of the mother religion, which become part and parcel of the same beast, but with renewed potential. These additional heads came about with the protestant reformation movement, which began with Martin Luther in 1515 CE.  The four heads of this leopard-like beast were, the Roman Catholic Church, the Lutheran Church, the Methodist Church, and the Presbyterian Church. This is a leopard beast and a leopard has many spots - today there are thousands of daughter churches that have splintered from the protestant heads, which are  daughters to the mother church, the Roman Catholic Church. I will not begin to list all the denominations [spots] here - way too many. This leopard-like beast with wings does a swift and wide-spread job of evangelizing it's religion around the world, and it is almost impossible to get a leopard to change it's spots. This beast maintains dominion until the Ancient of Days arrives.

The Lion, Bear, and Leopard Beasts in Perspective

So far we have seen how Rome, previously known as the Assyrians who initially captured the northern tribes of Israel in 922 BCE, is portrayed as a Lion, when it propels itself into a very high position equal to the Gods. Next we see the military strength of Rome as it conquers and subdues many nations [not just the British Isles], and on his list of priorities is especially the 'lost' tribes of Israel and the Jewish people, aka the 'saints'. The reason for this mysterious agenda becomes clear when you know the true identity pattern of these beasts. It is the pattern of Cain - remember the mark of Cain, it now becomes the mark of the beast - more on this mark later.

the Papal Executioners - convert or suffer a dreadful death
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's fourth vision was of a MOST DREADFUL kind of beast.  In fact it was more horrible than any known animal beast ever thought of being. This beast was extremely strong, and had iron teeth - all the better to eat you with, I suppose, and this beast did just that too, for it murdered millions upon millions of people all in the name of their dreadful exalted religion.  Daniel says that it devoured (flesh) and broke into pieces with its brass nails, then stamped the residue with it's feet thereof.  This beast devours the ‘entire Earth’, treads it down, and then breaks it into pieces. This is a clear picture of how Christianity has enveloped the entire Earth, covert or die - their motto, and in most incidence during the Middle Ages, death came after intense torture. This dreadful beast also thinks to change times and laws, [they changed the Sabbath days, the Jewish Holy days, and nailed the commandants of god [laws] to the 'cross'], and speaks against the Most High [the Great Spirit].
This beast was more dreadful than the first three beasts, in that it had ten horns coming out of it's head to emphasize strength and power. These ten horns, powerful as they were, could not compare with the evilness of the little (eleventh) horn, which came up among the first ten at a later date. The little horn, single-handedly, plucked up by the roots, three of the first ten horns (kings).  In this little horn were the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things. It's look was much stouter than all the other ten horns.
     This eleventh 'little horn' made war with the saints [the chosen ones], and prevailed against them for a time, times, and the dividing of a time (3 1/2).  The dominion of this little horn was to last for only a period of 3 1/2 years of time. The entire beast is eventually slain, and it's body is thrown into the fiery flames at the throne of the Ancient of Days [at the seat of the Messiah]. The Saints of the Most High [the chosen ones] shall receive the Kingdom of Heaven.

     This fourth beast is obvious to figure out, for it is none other than the position of papal-executioner, and with the assist of the ten horns + one, this beast would torture, murder, execute, and steal the souls of, millions of innocents in the name of the 'Holy Roman Empire' beast. While the lion beast had earlier gave itself an uplifted divine position of authority, followed by military strength as a bear, taking control of many nations, and then increasing its parameters, it grew four heads to aid in its mission - then comes the executioner beast - convert or die. The full-fledged era of papal strength and power began with Charlemagne, King of the Franks, on Christmas Day (the reason why Christmas is so important to Christians), in the year 800 CE.  Pope Leo III crowned Charlemagne (Charles the Great), at St. Peter's Church in Rome, and made Charlemagne the Emperor and Augustus of Rome.  Charlemagne was the son of the Frankish (Germanic) King Pepin.  Charlemagne's  likeness has been used as the model for the paintings and depictions of Jesus numerous times in the past. Charlemagne's coronation materialized the formation of Teutonic Christian forces, creating a most dreadfully strong beast - a beast, which lasts longer, reaches more people in the world, than any other force on Earth.  Charlemagne used the phrase, his 'Christian Empire', but later the Empire became known as the 'Holy' Roman Empire. The prince of darkness had moved it's pawns into position.  They predictively took their seat upon the throne of 'Mystery Babylon the Great'.   The harlot, representing the church, thereby rode upon the great Roman beast.

  The Ten Horns represent ten Germanic tribes that give power to the beast. The iron teeth of the beast, called by Jews - the ‘AGE OF IRON’, represent the iron swords raised up against them.  The beast stamped its feet, trod down the weak (meek), destroyed the truth, and murdered millions of saints [chosen people, i.e. Israelites], during the seven Crusades that lasted from 1096 to 1291.  Killed were millions of innocent people during the Crusades, all in the name of Christianity.  And once again, religion was the pulsating 'heart' of this most dreadful beast that murdered millions of people during the Spanish Inquisition - ordered by the papal executioner.  Eventually the 'heretic hunt' reached out over the entire Earth, as predicted by Daniel with witch burnings that began in Europe and continued in America. The witch burnings were mainly done by Protestants, but Catholics did millions as well.  Murdered also, were millions of Hebrew people, and an elaborate attempt had been made, by the powers of darkness, to eliminate the truth about the chosen ones as well, by mandating the Babylonian-type religion, [with a little Jewish tradition thrown in for 'good' measure].  This 'adultery' is what the great harlot represents.
     The Papal executions and the Spanish Inquisitions were a bloody, torturous, and murderous time that lasted hundreds of years, and most Christians today have never heard of the Inquisition, and they have no clue about their religion's bloody and dark past. The purpose of the Inquisition was to murder all who would not conform to the corrupted faith of the 'Holy' Roman Beast. Millions of people were murdered for disagreeing with this monstrous beast, and the official murders lasted right up to 1807, when Napoleon declared an 'end' to the 'Holy' Roman Empire.

The Eleventh Little Horn
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 little horn is none other than the 'little big guy' himself: the German Adolph Hitler.  Hitler reigned in his Third Reich for exactly 4474 days - a time, times, and a dividing of a time.  Divide 4474 by 3.5 and you get 1278.375 - which is exactly 3 1/2 times 365.25 - a solar year.  A 'time' here means specifically a solar year, as this 'time' in Hebrew refers to solar time, rather than the perfected time of 360.
     Hitler was born into a Roman Catholic home, but had independent views on who Jesus actually was, which he believed was not Jewish.  Hitler believed in an Aryian point of view, and felt he had a mission of divine providence to exterminate the enemies of Jesus, who were, to him, the practicing Jews. At different times Hitler declared to the masses his choice of religion:
 "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."
And again, "I am now as before a Catholic and will always remain so.

     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.
     Hitler, plainly had a mission, but it was not Heaven-sent, but rather, it was dictated from the heart of this fourth beast, which was to eliminate every trace of the Hebrew Israelites. Well, there are millions of Israelites still alive and becoming stronger than ever, and soon millions of 'lost' tribes, from the ancient Hebrew people, will come out of the woodwork and re-claim their natural position of authority - and perhaps we already see this occurring with the USA and Great Britain.

     Adolph Hitler was made chancellor on January 30, 1933, and he soon afterward abolished freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and burnt thousands of books, which he said made the Germanic people look bad.  Not to switch gears on you here, but FDR was born on January 30, 1882.  Notice the coincidence of January 30th here.  Hitler remained in power for 12.25 years, and then [supposedly] committed suicide on April 30, 1945 (this could actually be May 1, 1945).  FDR was in power for 12.42 years and died in office on April 12, 1945.  Hitler took away freedoms, FDR wished to bestow freedoms.
     From Justinian's law that made Christianity the religion of the world (529 AD), to Napoleon's denouncing the 'Holy' Roman Empire (1807 AD) - is exactly 1278.375 years - or 3 1/2 'times'.  This beast lasted 3 1/2 times, and the little horn lasted 3 1/2 times, each on a different scale, but both lasting 3 1/2 'times'.

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:

Note: In March of 1970, the supposed remains of Adolph Hitler were reportedly exhumed, burned thoroughly in cremation, and the ashes dumped unceremoniously into the River Elbe [Albis].  In astrology, March 21 is regarded as the first full day of the fire sign of Aries, and it is thought to be the day that Hitler's bones burned, although the ashes were not reportedly dumped into the River until April of 1970. Ironically, it was this very day, March 21, 1970, that a proclamation was issued by the United Nations, to celebrate the day of the vernal equinox as EARTH DAY.


What many have suspected all along, the mark of the beast - ['666' -as per the book of Revelation], is also the mark of a man. The original man who was cursed with this mark was 'Cain', and this mark still survives in Cain's descendants [see identity of Cain above]. Sitting in the Papal seat of Satan, Cain, as the beast's head, has taken on the title, VICARIUS FILII DEI, which literally means:

VICARIUS - means 'in place of' - in substitution
FILII - means son 
DEI - means God

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...

In English:

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.

 During 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.

Notice, that the four beasts of Daniel chapter seven, exibit  the following pattern:
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
The days of this beastly-pattern are coming to a close soon, as the Saints of the 'Ancient of Days' prepares to dissolve the dominion of all such beasts, and the origin of this pattern will suffer the fiery flames.
