Page 3: The Beast With 10 Horns

Now who is the Beast with 10 horns?

Yet again the Lord has humbled me. For 20 years I have believed that the EU is the beast with 10 horns. Recently after much agony and searching the Lord has corrected me. I will leave my reasons for believing the EU was it at the bottom of this page for a time. However, now I will give you the reason that should be obvious for believing now that Islam is the beast with 10  horns. Keep in mind that this is not definite. Bible prophecy is not that simple. This may change because something is still nagging me in my spirit. 

Wow! I love correction. I have said that the beast of Rev 13 is the EU for 20 years but last night the obvious hit me. Thank you Jesus!

 Daniel 7 describes 4 kingdoms. The first is a lion and Daniel 8 reveals that this was Nebuchadnezzar. The second was a bear and Daniel 8 reveals it was the Medes and the Persians. The third was a leopard and represented Greece (Alexander the Great)

These kingdoms all followed each other. Then Daniel 7 says there is a forth beast that is diverse from all of the others. It has 10 horns.

I have looked at this for years and thought I understood it but thought the EU was the 10 horns because it made sense with the 10 full members of the EU. But it has always bothered me when reading the description of the beast in Rev 13. I had been exposed to teaching when I was a kid the beast was the EU. But I always tried to figure out who the bear, leopard and lion were without seeing that Daniel tells us who they are. Dah!

20 years I have believed this lie. If the 10 horns have the same characteristics as the first 3 beasts is it not obvious that this beast is a combination of all 3 beasts. It is not the EU, it is Islam. Islam is the dominant government in what was ancient Babylon, Medea, Persia, and soon Greece. Isn't this what many teach. I could never accept their teaching because they almost all said Babylon the Great is Islam as well. It is obviously the Vatican. Of that I have no doubt.

So we have 2 camps with half truths. One sees the true Babylon the Great and the other sees the true 10 horned beast.

Now for this to happen Islam will have to put a stop to ISIS killing all of the Christians within the next 2 years. The beast of Rev has 10 horns and 7 heads working together. If the 7 heads are the New World Religion and the 10 horns are 10 Islamic states then the 2 have to come to terms with one another before the midst of the 7 year covenant. I still see the EPI as a good candidate for the 7 year covenant signed on Jan 1, 2014. It was brokered by Jovier Solana and first signed on Jan 1, 2007. He was the high representative of the EU at that time. He can be considered the prince of the people who destroyed the temple easily.

The Roman Empire was changed to the Holy Roman Empire by Constantine around 200 AD. The reins went from the emperor to the Pope at some point. The Germanic Horde that came down and took Rome recognized the Pope and left him in power. The point is that the 7 year EPI covenant could be the Daniel 9 covenant. We will watch and see.

The next event in scripture, once the covenant is signed, should be the king of the north coming against the king of the south from Daniel 11.

ISIS looks like it could be fulfilling the Daniel 1:21-31 prophecy. Notice in Daniel 11 when the king of the north tries to attack Egypt he is stopped and then arms rise up on his part and take away the daily sacrifice and set up the abomination that Jesus said to watch for. Epephanes was a shadow of this event.

Notice also that in Daniel 9 it is the prince of the covenant (some bibles say one comes indicating it is a different person) who CAUSES the daily sacrifice to stop. This could indicate that he gives the order but Daniel 8 reveals that it is the little horn who actually takes away the daily sacrifice and sets up the abomination that causes desolation. So this could be three different people rather than one as most say.

So if the 10 horns are Islam now I need to research who they might be exactly. Very interesting.

Remain teachable, always question your understanding and eventually God will lead you into all truth.

Today is August 29th and I have been wondering about this new understanding for some time now. As I said before, something is still nagging me about this. The reason is that there is so much evidence that the EU IS the beast. When we look at the statue in Daniel 2 we see that there were 5 kingdoms. We must understand that the kingdoms have to be ruling over Israel to be anything to do with these beasts or kingdoms.

So Daniel tells us that :
1) the head of gold was Nebuchadnezzar
           -in Daniel 7:4 this was the beast with a breast like a lion with wings of an eagle

2) the breast of silver was the Medes and the Persians
           -in Daniel 7 this was a beast like a bear with three ribs in its mouth

3) the belly and thighs of bronze was Alexander the Great from Greece, later replaced by 4 generals and divided into 4 regional kingdoms
           -in Daniel 7 this was a beast like a leopard with four wings

4) the legs of iron was the Roman Empire
           -in Daniel 7 the beast with iron teeth and 10 horns or kings

What we are presented with here is a conundrum; a confusing and difficult problem or question.

History is definite about the kingdom following Alexander the great. Rome followed Greece and the 4 generals. The understanding below explains this in great detail.

But the beast with 10 horns in Daniel 7 is diverse from all of the 3 beasts before it and in revelation 13 we see that it has retained the characteristics; like a leopard, feet of a bear, and mouth of a lion, which we know are now all Muslim States.

So as you can see both explanations hold value, but what is the truth about this beast?

Look at Daniel 7 again and the words used:

7:7) the 4th beast is diverse, different, from all of the beasts before it
7:24) a little horn rises up among the 10 horns that is different from all of the 10 horns and subdues 3 of the first horns
7:12) the rest of the beasts were allowed to continue for a season and a time.

When Rome conquered the Middle East it did not replace the kingdoms that were there as most armies do. Rather it brought them under their control like a big brother. So Rome never really captured the countries, it just controlled them from Rome. Like in Israel where Rome sent Herod to govern Israel, not to take over Israel. He was more like a police chief.

So the bear, lion and leopard still ruled under him in the Middle East. This is why they can continue after the 10 horns are taken out. It is just big brother that is taken out.

So are we back to the scenario below? A 10 nation confederate Islam never existed at the time of Christ. But if we look at Psalm 83 we find 11 horns described. Daniel 7 says there are 10 and another rises among them. That is 11 in total. The Psalm 83 war has never happened yet in history, so it is coming soon.

The 10 horns only reign for a time, times and a half a time. Other scriptures prove this is only 3 1/2 years. The EU has been around longer than this and if it is considered to be the revived Roman Empire then it has been around for over 2000 years. But remember, it has only been a big brother type.

Is it possible that all of the regions ruled by the 4 generals have hardly changed since their conception and that they still exist? Is it possible that the 10 horns have never really come into being yet?

Two prophecy teachers that have taught this are Walid Shoebat and Glen Beck. I have never trusted them because Beck is a Mormon and Walid teaches that Babylon the Great is Babylon simply because he is Catholic and cannot see the Vatican as Babylon. But in this area it is possible that they are right.

I will continue this study and be back.
The old understanding:

There are several teachings on who this beast actually is. Many are smoke screens, but two are true. These are the European Union and Islam. The reason I say both is because the 10 horns start out as the EU and is ruled by the Papacy, however, the little horn of Daniel 7 joins the 10 horns and is a Muslim nation. Near the end of the final 3 1/2 years this Muslim leader will place his own 10 kings over the 10 EU nations. This is what I call a Metamorphosis, and is the reason so many have not understood the scriptures regarding the 10 horns.

At that time he will call for Jihad orldwide.

Let me explain.

Understand that our understanding also goes through its own metamorphisis as we study and learn new things relating to prophecy. When we stop allowing this metamorphosis to take place we stall in our growth and limit the Lord in how he can use us. However, the man who introduced me to Jesus new very little of what I know today, so this shows that we don't have to know everything to be useful to God.

Now let's look at Daniel 2 and a dream Nebuchadnezzar had:

Dan 2:32  This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
Dan 2:33  His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
Dan 2:34  Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

To know the meaning of this dream Daniel prayed, and when his dream was interpreted it was revealed that there would be 6 kingdoms ruling in Jerusalem. The gold head was Nebuchadnezzar himself with his Babylonian Empire. Following him, history reveals, came the Medes and the Persians as the silver breast and arms kingdom and third came the Greeks with Alexander the Great as the belly and thighs of brass. The iron legs were the Roman Empire under a series of Caesars. These 4 kingdoms were historical fact by the time Christ was born.

This fourth kingdom was never truly subdued. The regions west of Greece fell to Germanic hordes in about 400 A.D. The Emperor was pushed east to Constantinople in Turkey where the Empire remained until the 1400s. However, they never really disappeared from Rome because the Roman Catholic Church remained in control over Rome. Though Caesar began the empire that controlled Europe the power to rule transferred to the church as the fear of clergy took over the hearts of the rulers. When the Germanic horde came to power they recognized the churches rule and gave place to her. 

Now today, still the kingdom of iron, the Roman Empire has gone through a medimorphosis as well. The Roman Catholic Church now rules the hearts of the European Union. It has 27 nations that have come under one flag. These nations are all Christian nations under the rule of the Papacy. Hence Rome still rules these nations today. 

Of these 27 nations, however, only 10 have any power. These 10 nations are called full members and are the only nations in the 27 nations who have the right to veto any recommendations put forth by the reigning High Representative of the Union. Because of this fact they rule the lesser member states. These 10 are the beast of Daniel 7,8 and Revelation 13. They are the 10 horns and are the iron of Nebuchadnezzar's fifth kingdom in Daniel chapter 2. The clay of the final kingdom of iron and clay feet is the 2nd  beast with 2 horns in Rev 13 described on another page on this blog to be the US and Canada.

When looking at Rev 12 and 13 we see the beast has 7 heads as well as 10 horns. These 7 heads are the 7 mainline religions that have all come together to form the new One World Religion, or New World Religion as some call it. These heads are the Dragon of Revelation 12 and 13. They will rule the apostate church in the last 3 1/2 years and persecute the woman in Rev 12 who is the true bride of Christ. I explain this on the Rapture page.

The ten full members of the EU are France, Germany, Luxembourg, Italy, the United Kingdom, Greece, Netherlands, Spain, Belgium and Portugal.

Now in Daniel 7 and 8 we find four of these kingdoms described with more clarity. With this in mind, please read:

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 broke 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.”  

In verse 23 we read, ”Thus he said the fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom upon the earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread down, and break it in pieces. And the 10 horns out of this kingdom are 10 kings that shall arise;”

Notice that the 10 horns are OUT of this fourth kingdom. These 10 are not the whole kingdom. There are 27 nations in the EU in total. This kingdom is also described in Rev 13. However, it is called only a beast and if you will read Rev 13 you will find that this beast is joined with another powerful beast that has only two horns which has just as much power as the first beast. This second beast with 2 horns, kings or nations, is explained on another page.

Today the European Union has become a power to be reckoned with. In 2010 the High Representative of the EU received power over the militia of the whole 27 nations and at his or her discretion can take control of this enormous army. The recommendation that brought this about is Recommendation 666. Hmmmm. This recommendation makes the EU almost as powerful as the USA.

Now some people are saying that the 10 horns are a new entity of United nations. However, this does not make sense as this would mean a new kingdom rather than the prior kingdom of iron simply mixing with the clay. There is no doubt that the United Nations is related to what takes place in our time, but this prophecy is not pointing at them but at the EU. The one thing that supports their view is that the kingdom devours the whole earth. But watch what comes shortly as the little horn rises from Daniel 7,8.

Now this beast still has to go through the metamorphisis and turn into a Muslim kingdom. If you look at Rev  17 and 18 you will see that the little horn places its own 10 kings over the beast and will destroy Babylon in one hour. The beast starts out as a Roman entity and turns into a Muslim entity. I explain this more on the page that describes who the little horn is.

Here is a link to show you how Islam is accomplishing their takeover of North America. It is the same basic way they are capturing the EU.
