January 13: The Fourth Beast Daniel 7:23   

Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar both had dreams outlining the history of the Gentile nations which would rule the world.  Historically we call this time “The Age of the Gentiles” which extends from the Babylonian Empire until the 2nd coming of Christ. Nebuchadnezzar saw the kingdoms as a statue made of different metals while Belshazzar saw them as animals. 

God gave Daniel the interpretations for both kings, the history which has proven to be 100% accurate.

The Legs of Iron in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and the fourth beast in Belshazzar’s dream was the Roman Empire which eventually split between the east and west.  With the onset of the Ezekiel 38 war, the eastern portion under Moslem influence will dissipate leaving the western more democratic leaning nations to become a conglomerate.

Daniel 7:23

“Thus he said:

‘The fourth beast shall be
A fourth kingdom on earth,
Which shall be different from all other kingdoms,
And shall devour the whole earth,
Trample it and break it in pieces.

Did you note the phrase is “Shall devour the whole earth?”  Throughout history, many leaders have tried to conquer the “whole earth”, but God gives this one the power and authority to do so, at least for a time.

Does this not motivate us all to pray and to warn Israel of what is coming? 

This conglomerate will not last and give way to the “ten toes” kingdoms which will then make way for the rise of the antichrist.
