“Daniel said: “In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea.  Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea.

“The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a man, and the heart of a man was given to it.

“And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, ‘Get up and eat your fill of flesh!’

“After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.

“After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.”  Daniel 7:2-7

The first was like a lion . . .

“The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a man, and the heart of a man was given to it.”   Daniel 7:4

I believe this refers to Great Britain.  Richard the Lionhearted (King Richard I) chose a 3 lion emblem for the royal coat of arms. During his reign, this warrior-king led the third Crusade, to liberate Jerusalem and the Holy Land from Islamic rule.  I believe Richard the Lionhearted may foreshadow Jesus Christ, in the context of this prophecy.

Jesus, at His return, will also be a warrior-king, and  I am fairly confident that Islam  will be the ‘end time religion’ and the ‘abomination that causes desolation’, from which Jesus Christ will liberate us.  I am sure that there is much more symbology here than what I can see.

Britain’s lion emblem has changed over time.  But, it does not appear that there ever was an official emblem of a lion with wings, for Great Britain.  The two wings, that were plucked off, represent the United States of America.  Symbolically, they originate from within the lion, become mobile and move away from the lion, and then sever their dependence upon the lion.  It is also fitting, because the emblem of the United States is the eagle.

At some point, the lion’s position changed and today’s British lion stands erect, on two feet, like a man.

If you didn’t catch it yet–“and the heart of a man was given to it”  is a clever play on words that refers to Richard the Lionhearted.  As with all of God’s Word, many layers of truth are contained in every passage, intricately woven together.

“The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a man, and the heart of a man was given to it.”   Daniel 7:4

Even more fascinating than all of this though, is what can be learned when one delves into the meaning of the coats of arms of Britain!  There was a time, in Britain’s history, when the British knew their ancestry.  It is depicted amidst the rich symbology of their royal coats of arms and national emblems.  Although, today, the knowledge has been largely lost, Britain is the tribe of Ephraim, to which Joseph gave his blessing.

The United States is Manasseh (brother of Ephraim), and also heir to the blessing.  When one understands this, ‘all the pieces fall into place’.  Suddenly recent history and world geopolitics make sense.  We realize that America was not inadvertently omitted from the scriptures.  The characteristics of different people groups have a historical context, and we realize–more than ever–what most of us have known deep in our hearts: that America was a nation, founded and blessed by God, and that we ARE His people!

Interpretation given in Daniel 7:17 is that each of the four beasts in Daniel’s vision is a kingdom ‘that will rise from the earth’.

We are also told that [the first three] beasts, at some point, were ‘ stripped of their authority, but were allowed to live for a period of time’.  Daniel 7:12

Here is a link with much information, which I don’t have enough knowledge of to either verify nor refute.  I have not had time to really explore the site, so I can’t say whether or not I agree with all the material presented there. But, it seems to be an interesting starting place, for those who might wish to research the subject.  As with anything, one should approach it skeptically, and compare it against the Scriptures.  http://jahtruth.net/britca.htm

The Fourth Kingdom–Iron And Clay

Geez, when I started this post yesterday, it was just going to be a short prelude to something else . . . however, it is starting to look like these two people could very well be the major players behind a lot of our (current) top headlines!  I knew almost none of this, until I started asking  ‘who is . . . ?’  yesterday.

A couple of days ago, Glenn Beck aired a video of former FBI agent Larry Grathwohl in 1982.  His role, in the mid ’70s,  had been to infiltrate ‘The Weather Underground.  He was the only person who was able to successfully do so.

The Weather Underground was a domestic terrorist organization that was devoted to the overthrow of America.  So what?  That was a long time ago?  Think again.  Do names like Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn ring a bell?  Bill and Bernardine were leaders of this communist revolutionary group.

Bill Ayers girlfriend, Diana Oughton, was one of the people helping build a bomb (for their campaign of bombing public buildings), when it detonated and killed her and a couple other ‘Weathermen’, in Greenwich Village in 1970.

He later married Bernardine Dohrn**.  They were the primary leaders of ‘Weatherman’ aka ‘The Weather Underground’.  Bill Ayers = William Ayers*. This is the same William Ayers who is an associate of Mr. Obama.

Anyhow . . . back to the video.  Here is a portion from it (the speaker is the FBI agent who infiltrated Weatherman):

‘I brought up the subject of what’s going to happen after we take over the government. You know, we become responsible then for administrating, you know, 250 million people. And there was no answers. No one had given any thought to economics, how are you going to clothe and feed these people. The only thing that I could get was that they expected that the Cubans and the North Vietnamese and the Chinese and the Russians would all want to occupy different portions of the United States.

They also believed that their immediate responsibility would be to protect against what they called the counterrevolution and they felt that this counterrevolution could best be guarded against by creating and reestablishing reeducation centers in the southwest where we would take all the people who needed to be reeducated into the new way of thinking and teach them how things were going to be. I ask, well, what is going to happen to those people that we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists? And the reply was that they would have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated that they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers. And when I say eliminate, I mean kill. 25 million people.’

‘ . . . when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of intrigue, will arise.’  Daniel 8:23

Interestingly, this is the same Glenn Beck who did a show debunking the myth (?) of FEMA camps being built across America as detention centers for dissidents!  (I wonder if he sees the possible connection yet?)

The FEMA camp ‘myth’ is another thing I haven’t wanted to believe.  But, if satan was floating that idea over 30 years ago–and why should we be surprised, it’s just what he did in Nazi Germany–then likely that is his plan now too.

It is important to understand that satan has always had the same plan.  Throughout history God has allowed him little tastes of success.  God uses satan as His means of judgment on His people, when they pursue a life of rebellion.

God is stepping aside.  He is loosening His restraint on evil. This is satan’s hour.  Unless there is a mighty revival–of humbleness and repentance, among God’s people–this is the end of ‘The Dispensation of Grace’.

Very, VERY soon, the window of opportunity, for our repentance to halt the flow of events, will be forever closed.

Unfortunately, humility and admitting oneself wrong are anathema to modern Americans.

Make no mistake, America is God’s people.  America represents the largest of the tribes of Israel on the Earth today.  We are Manasseh.

*Don’t let it escape you that William Ayers career centers around education reform and curriculum!

Footnotes:

**Interestingly, Bernardine is Jewish.  (There always seems to be a Jewish connection!  There have been questions whether Hitler or Ahmadinejad were/are Jewish.)  Here is a quote from foreignpolicy.com that seems to sum it up:

‘ . . . classic pattern for religious converts: Adopt Islam (or whatever anti-Jewish path), leave the hometown where people might know you as a Jew, move to a new location where blending into the [Muslim] population is easier, take up different occupations, and, just in case anyone were to question their confessional fidelity, demonstrate zeal for [Islam] by attacking their former religion [and other minority faiths.]‘  (comments mine)

For whatever reason,  it seems that satan prefers to use Jews that rebel against being Jewish to do his bidding.  Perhaps it is his hope that it will lend credence to his lie that all Jews are evil . . . guilty by association.  Don’t believe the lie!

UPDATES:

1. Before even posting this I have found another, very timely, excellent link

2. When I wrote  ‘Coincidence? Sabotage? Who Would Gain The Most?’ a few days ago, I did not feel convinced that sabotage is what happened, but I felt the possibility deserved examination.  However, after watching the 3rd video in the  link above (Update #1), it no longer seems like a stretch of the imagination!  Not only is sabotage a possibility–Obama is closely tied to people (Ayers & Dohrn) who have a history of similar acts!!
