Daniel 7 explained (verses 4-6)
- under construction -
Some time ago, it became obvious that Daniel 7 was another timeline of end times that
was beginning to happen in parallel with the final empire in Daniel 11. To make a long
story short, Persia is God’s chosen instrument to bring about end time events, not Israel as
people have been led to believe. Granted, Israel has a role in end times, starting in Daniel
11:28, but they are not the primary driver of events. On the contrary, God is using Iran
and Russia, which I’ve shown to be the ‘iron & clay’ in Daniel 2, to a much greater degree
to facilitate the necessary changes to fulfill prophecies in Daniel 7 and 11, simultaneously.
When you think about it, that’s not so unusual because Persia has been used by God
before, starting with their founder, Cyrus, whose name was prophesied by Isaiah, 3 times!
(Isaiah 44:28; 45:1; 45:13) Centuries later, Cyrus overthrew the Babylonian Empire and
allowed the Israelites to return and rebuild their Temple in Jerusalem. (Ezra 1) It’s also
conceivable that the “wise men from the East” came from the Parthian Empire, which was
an Iranian dynasty, who obviously had more information or help from God than the so-
called “chief priests and teachers of the law.” (Matthew 2:1-12) The Parthians were also
part of the “four winds” in Daniel 11:4 so the Persians have been used by God on numerous
occasions in the Bible. Therefore, Christians should not be afraid of God’s instrument of
choice to bring about the return of Jesus, which is going to happen one way or another, by
Note: Daniel 7 has ‘4 beasts’ but only the ‘last’ is “terrifying and frightening” because it’s
the ‘post-rapture’ beast with ‘ten-heads’, as featured in Revelation 13. The rest are just
Iran is the “Lion” in Daniel 7:4 (1st beast)
4 "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.
This verse spans more time than it first appears. The “wings of an eagle” is America’s
inadvertent help, by eliminating Saddam in 2003, which is the first part of Daniel 11:22.
After that, American sanctions literally tore their wings off but the recent nuclear agreement
(which was a major part of Daniel 11:23) lifted Iran from the ground so they are standing
on two feet like a man (so to speak in the Middle East). That was made possible by the
reformist president, Rouhani, and Foreign Minister Zarif, who were the ‘heart’ of the
negotiations, if you know what I mean.
Russia is the “Bear” in Daniel 7:5 (2nd beast)
5 "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!'
Russia was “raised up on one of its sides” when a passenger airliner was brought down,
while returning from Egypt, Halloween-2015. After that, a Russian jet was downed by
Turkey, while it was defending Assad in northern-Syria, November 24, 2015. That was
Turkey’s attempt to sabotage a meeting between France and Russia, following the Paris
attacks, November 13, 2015. It didn’t work but it gave Russia a very good excuse to bring
in sophisticated missile defense systems and aircraft to hold the surrounding countries
“between their teeth” (so to speak). Russia is not exactly working with the West, but after
terrorist’s attacks increased around the world, they essentially did what they wanted and
“ate their fill of flesh”, from Assad’s enemies, and announced that their main goals were
A ‘mixture’ is the “Leopard” in Daniel 7:6 (3rd beast)
6 "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.
The “leopard” represents a “mixture” (many spots), so I believe the ‘four heads’ could be
the main ground forces of Assad, Hezbollah, Iraq, and the Kurds. Note: there are other
Shia militias (besides Hezbollah) and other allies (with the Kurds) but they are generally
mixed with one of those four groups. Nevertheless, the ongoing Geneva talks could shine
some more light on the exact designations. On the other hand, I believe the ‘four wings’
are the four ‘air forces’ of Russia, Syria, Iraq, and the United States because the Kurds and
Hezbollah don’t have an air force. In a sense, this mixture has been given “authority to
rule” because they are defending the legitimate governments of Iraq and Syria (against
ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra), which are the only groups excluded from the current UN cease-
