Does America survive the end times?
650 before John wrote the Book of Revelation, the prophet Daniel was given a vision of four beasts that represented kingdoms or nations, which would exist at the time of the Second Coming of Christ. The four beasts, described in Daniel 7:4-7 and the modern nations they symbolize are (1) A lion with eagle’s wings—Great Britain and the United States (2) A bear—Russia (3) A four-headed leopard—Germany (4) A ten-horned beast—Reborn Holy Roman Empire or the current European Union.
In Revelation 13:1-2, John uses these same beasts or nations to describe the end time world government. In John’s account, the four separate nations of Daniel 7 have federalized into one large global governing body.
The interpretation is:
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns (federated world government), and upon his horns (European Union) ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard (Germany), and his feet were as the feet of a bear (Russia), and his mouth as the mouth of a lion (Great Britain): and the dragon (Satan) gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.”
This is a 2,000-year-old prophecy of the same New World Order or world government that is currently being established.
United States Is Missing: The eagle’s wings, symbolic of the United States in Daniel 7, are not mentioned in the end time world government of Revelation 13. Where are they? Revelation 12:14, “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”
