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 the Bible    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 fulfilling prophecy.  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 “fulfilled.”  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- fire. done Recent Events ISIS - Saudi - Turkey (Daniel 11: 24-27) Final Events to the Abomination (Daniel 11: 28-30) Shiites re-take Persia + America’s Role Begins (Daniel 11: 21-23) in progress Current Events from Daniel 11 (matching the Middle East) done
