[156] Daniel 7: The lion the bear the leopard and the terrible beast

1 In the first year of Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, Daniel himself beheld a dream and visions of his head upon his bed. At that time he wrote down the dream itself. The complete account of matters he told (Daniel 7).

NWT is a good translation here. So we have a dream fulfillment (since dream is singular) and two vision fulfillments (since visions is plural). 3 symbolic meanings in total. And the dream fulfillment is written down, so it is the non coded the straight symbolism of the account, the event symbolism. The event symbolism of the dream has the 4 beasts as the Babylonian, Medo Persian, Greek and Roman powers over God's people after God himself ceased being their King. The two vision accounts are two word symbolic threads. 

The two word symbolic meanings (in the first fulfilments) are the story of the 4 successive true religions FDS1,2,3,4 and the story of the 4 not necessarily successive military beasts in the last days. The 4th and most terrible beast emerges after the first birth pang in Manhattan. It is the UN clone/image beast of Revelation13. (which is finally corrupted by the little horn of the EU). We are yet to see this UN clone/image beast.

2 I was looking in my vision together with the night 
4 I kept on beholding/(was looking) until its wings were plucked
6 After this I kept on beholding/(was looking) and see there! Another
7 After this I kept on beholding/(was looking) in the visions of the night
9 I kept on beholding/(was looking) until there were thrones placed
11 I kept on beholding/(was looking) at that time 
11 I kept on beholding/(was looking) until the beast was killed 
13 I kept on beholding/(was looking) in the visions of the night
21 I kept on beholding/(was looking) and that very horn made war

The phrase: I kept on beholding/(was looking) occurs 9 times in the account! Of course Daniel kept on beholding, he was a visionary! The first 8 of these occurrences are all to do with time.

We therefore deduce that the phrase I kept on beholding provides a new time frame, it is a time discontinuity. 

The phrase: I kept on beholding in the visions of the night occurs twice. And the whole thing starts with the phrase: I was looking in my vision during the night.

There is a candidate for a triple successive description in verse 7 which is headed by the phrase I was looking in the visions of the night. But it starts with a Chaldee Peal passive participle (BDAHCL) without an 'and' which means it is not being used as an adjective but as a noun. Visions of the night indicates hidden visions. These are the word symbolic threads of the account.

The phrase Kept on beholding, means that the antitypical Daniel (Gordon) kept on decoding. The scripture:

8 I kept on considering the horns

This is the main thing Gordon and the LWs were doing for from 2002 to 2005. Our first of 30 or so adverts attempting to declare in advance when the Image of the UN Beast, with 10 horns. they got it all wrong. This clone/image beast is a new administration with the UN as its mother and the UK/US two horned beast of Revelation13 as its father. The false prophet of the 2 horned beast blows its spirit into the clone. So the clone has the modus operandi, the operating system,. the software, the philosophy of the UK/US world power. As of 2017Iyyar28 we are yet to see this clone and we are yet to see its 10 horns. We think its 10 horns are the 10 toes of the giant image of Daniel2 running from 10 days of 10 kings having one thought after the fire signs, to 2018Nisan14, the end of Adam. On 2017Adar14, the unrepentant members of the dragon go to Gehenna. 2018Iyyar12 is the repentant demonic Pentecost from first fruits on 2017Adar17.

1 In the first year of Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, Daniel himself beheld a dream and visions of his head upon his bed. At-that-time [!yId;aBe] he wrote down the dream itself. The complete account of the matters he told.
2 Daniel was speaking up and saying: I happened to be beholding in my visions during the night, and, see there! the 4 winds of the heavens were stirring up the vast sea.
3 And 4 huge beasts were coming up out of the sea, each one being different from the others [Event and Word1 and Word2: These beasts are not created by Satan, they are a reaction from mankind in general to the heavenly activities of Melchizedek, Gabriel, Michael and Satan.]
4 The first one was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I kept on beholding until its wings were plucked out, and it was lifted up from the earth and was made to stand on 2 feet just like a man, and there was given to it the heart of a man. [Well the UK no longer has an air force to speak of. During WW2 we had the largest air force in the world and 2 million people were working or aeroplane construction. Today, 2017Iyyar28, the UK has a few dozen planes left and our future jets will be US made - But the F35 is having problems and is the only new US fighter jet now being made - They put all their eggs in one bureaucratic compromise for the benefit of accountants and stupidly enabled the largest aircraft manufacturers to arrange a competition which destroyed the smaller ones such as McDonald Douglas (just as Boeing basically destroyed Concorde). Furthermore having been the first navy to land a plane on a ship we now have no aircraft carrier at all. However we do have 14 rear admirals and we have thousands more bureaucrats working at the MOD. Perhaps we can defend ourselves with really really politically correct paperwork?] 
5 And, see there! another beast, a second [one], [this is evidently a double designation from the sense] it being like a bear. And on one side it was raised up, and there were 3 ribs in its mouth [under its political influence, it speaks for them] between its teeth [military power]; and this is what they [the teeth] were saying to it, 'Get up, eat much flesh.'
6 After this I kept on beholding, and, see there! another [beast], one like a leopard, but it had 4 wings of a flying creature on its back. And to-the-beast 4 heads, and rulership was given to her.

7 After this I kept on beholding in the visions of the night, and, see there! a 4th beast, [one] being terrifying and terrible and unusually strong [might have been a triple description but no 'and' before 'being terrifying' which is a Chaldee peal passive participle BDAHCL]. And it had teeth of iron, big ones. It was devouring and crushing, and what was left it was treading down with its feet. And it was something different from all of the [-lk] beasts that were prior to it, and it had 10 horns.
8 I kept on considering the horns, and, look! another horn, a small [one], came up in among them, and there were 3 of the first horns that were plucked up from before it. And, look! there were eyes like the eyes of a man in this horn, and there was a mouth speaking grandiose things.

9 I kept on beholding until there were thrones placed [on 2017Iyyar16, the coronation of the 3rd Holy Spirit] and the Ancient of Days [Methuselah] sat down. His clothing was white just like snow, and the hair of his head was like clean wool [of 2NC Kings]. His throne was flames of fire; its wheels were a burning fire.
10
There was a stream of fire flowing and going out from before him. There were 1,000 thousands that kept ministering to him, and 10,000 10,000s that kept standing right before him. The Court took its seat, and there were books that were opened.

11 I kept on beholding at-that-time [!yId;aB] because of the sound of the grandiose words that the horn was speaking; I kept on beholding until the beast was killed and its body was destroyed and it was given to the burning fire.
12
But as for the remainder of [
raX, construct noun] the beasts, their rulerships were taken away, and there was a lengthening in life given to them for a season/appointed time [nmz] and a time [!d[] [The Acceptable year followed by 3 months from 2018Iyyar1-Ab14, the end of Zoar, the end of the world] 

13 I kept on beholding in the visions of the night [new subaccount], and, see there! with the clouds of the heavens someone like a son of man happened to be coming; and to the Ancient of Days he gained access, and they brought him up close even before that One.
14
And to him there were given rulership and dignity and kingdom, that the peoples, national groups and languages should all serve even him. His rulership is an indefinitely lasting rulership that will not pass away, and his kingdom one that will not be brought to ruin.
15
As for me, Daniel, my spirit was distressed within on account of it, and the very visions of my head began to frighten me.
16
I went up close to one of those who were standing, that I might request from him reliable information on all this. And he said to me, as he went on to make known to me the very interpretation of the matters,
17
These the beasts, the great [ones] because they are 4, there are 4 kings that will stand up from the earth.
18
But the holy ones of the Supreme One will receive the kingdom, and they will possess the kingdom to time-indefinite, even to time-indefinite upon times-indefinite.'
19
Then it was that I desired to make certain concerning the beast, the 4th which proved to be different from all the others, extraordinarily fearsome, the teeth of which were of iron and the claws of which were of copper, which was devouring [and] crushing, and which was treading down even what was left with its feet;
20
and concerning the 10 horns that were on its head, and the other [horn] that came up and before which 3 fell, even that horn 

21 I kept on beholding when that very horn made war upon the holy ones, and it was prevailing against them,
22
until the Ancient of Days came [Methuselah, days are a human measurement of lifespan. God is the ancient of eons or actually of 'before' time itself] and judgment itself was given in favour of the holy ones of the Supreme One, and the definite appointed time [
anmz] arrived and holy ones possessed the kingdom [2017Heshvan6 - when the 3rd holy spirit takes over Zoar - directly. Or 2018Nisan14 when Abraham possess it. Or 2018Ab16 when the Kingdom is appointed. Or 2018Tishri5, when the Kingdom is installed].
23
This is what he said, [as for] the beast, the 4th, a 4th kingdom will come to be in-the-earth, that will be different from all the [other] kingdoms; and it will devour all of the earth and will trample it down and crush it.
24
And the 10 horns, from her, the kingdom, are 10 kings [that] rise up; and another one rises up after them, and he himself will be different from the first ones, and 3 kings he will humiliate [10 Kings of the UN clone. Also 10 months? the 11th horn is the EU which humiliates UK Germany and France on the UNSC].
25
And he will speak even words against the Most High [Jehovah], and he will harass continually the holy ones themselves of the Supreme One [Jesus]. And he will intend to change appointed times [
!ynmz] and law, and they [times and law or the holy ones?] will be given into his hand [5x] for a time [!d[] [], and times [!ynd[] [] and half a time [!d[] [4½x. This is more than 4 and less than 5 and a single time plus a half time plus a plural of times. So it must be 4½x. This is the last 4½ months of the Mark of the Beast test after which the Beast loses its power over them since the dragon is thrown into Gehenna on 2017Adar14. These run from 2017Heshvan6, when the 3rd Holy Spirit takes Zoar over, to 2017Adar21, the last day of demonic Cakes.. So Jesus gets the kings and priests out way before this horn gets control over Zoar through the Mark test]
26
And the Court itself proceeded to sit, and his own rulership [] they took away, in order to annihilate [him] and to destroy [him] totally.
27
'And the kingdom and the rulership and the grandeur of [
yd] the kingdoms under all the heavens were given to the people who are the holy ones of the Supreme One [from start of the flood onwards - more or less]. Their kingdom is an indefinitely lasting kingdom, and all the rulerships will serve and obey even them.'
28
Up to this point is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my own thoughts kept frightening me a great deal, so that my very complexion changed in me; but the matter itself I kept in my own heart.

3 Threads: Time [!d[] (5/6), Appointed Time [nmz] (3), Wings (3), Winds (1), Daniel (2), Man (0), Earth (3), Sea (2), Kings (3), Teeth (3), Iron (2), Beast (8), Kingdom (10)

First beast like a Lion with wings of an eagle Babylonian World Power.
Wings Military expansion
Wings plucked out End to military expansion
Stand on two feet like a man The later Babylonian Kings had spiritual insight and ruled directly over the people of the Northern and the Southern Kingdoms of Israel. This later rulership is represented by two feet.
Lifted up from the earth And given authority over God's people Israel after they conquered Samaria and took Ephraim into exile.
Earth Governments of the World
Given heart of a man Nebuchadnezzar was humiliated by God for 7 times, to teach him that God is the ruler in the Kingdom of mankind. This improved his heart from that of beast to that of 'man'. In other words he was given a spiritual heart, by humiliation. He and then later rulers accepted the status of the Sons of Israel as God's people.
2nd beast, like a bear, one side raised up. Medo Persian World Power. Persians stronger under Cyrus.
3 ribs in its mouth between its teeth Man as a whole body has 12 ribs, so 3 ribs is 25% of mankind. The Medo Persians ruled over one quarter of 'Adam'. 
Eat much flesh The Medo Persians killed a lot of people, but Cyrus let the sons of Israel out of Prison in Babylon and they returned to Jerusalem and Israel with Zerubbabel..

Teeth Military enforcement capability
Iron Made physically strong from the heavens
Teeth of iron Strong military enforcement capability
Horn Roman Emperor
10 horns on its head The 10 Christian Roman Emperors from Constantine to Theodosius (excluding "Julian the Apostate" now there's an emperor who puts his cards on the table!), during which time the false Catholic/Nicene/Athanasian Church (little horn) gained political power: "Came up in among them". Constantine recognised the Christian Religion in 313 and stopped persecuting all Christians. Theodosius made Nicene Christianity/Catholicism the religion of the Empire (and started persecuting people who weren't Christians - any excuse!) in 380 AD.
Little horn which came up in  among them but rose after them, which removes 3 of the 10 and speaks grandiose things. The Roman Catholic Church, which became the Holy Roman Empire. Daniel 7:8 is the battle between the Arians (Unitarians) and the Athanasians/Nicenes/Catholics (Trinitarians). The 3 removed Arian emperors were Constantius II, Valens and Valentinian II.
Eyes like the eyes of a man in this horn The little horn has vision that was like spiritual vision. Animals can see nothing spiritual, man can see spiritually. But it was a false spirituality.
There was a mouth speaking Grandiose things False religious claptrap. Sounds great but achieves nothing. Obviously since the little horn has its own eyes and mouth, it also has its own head, different from the head of the Roman Empire upon which the 10 horns reside. The head of the little horn is Christendom, all false Christian religions. 
4th Beast killed and its body was destroyed and it was given to the burning fire. End of the Physical Roman Empire (Western in 476 AD and Eastern in 1453 AD). But in 800 AD the Holy Roman Empire is formed, giving the body a new head, Christendom. But this body is destroyed in 2009Nisan (woe woe for 2 months).
The rest of the Beasts have their rulerships taken away and their life extended for an appointed time, and a given period. The Appointed time is the day of the Physical Roman Empire, and the given period is the day of the Holy Roman Empire from 800 to 2014? 
Because they are 4, there are 4 kings that will stand up from the earth. The Beasts are Kingdoms that form from the sea of mankind, the horns are Kings that stand out from the administration of a kingdom, the earth. These 4 kings are the first king of each of the 4 kingdoms. 
4th Beast is different from all the others Roman empire morphs into the Holy Roman Empire of Christendom, all false Christian religions.
What was left The remaining unconquered kingdoms of the known world (UK etc.)
Claws of copper Copper is physically strong from the earth. With its earthly strength it goes persecuting and crushing the remaining kingdoms of the known world (UK etc)
Someone like a son of man Jesus
Ancient of Days God
Daniel Daniel
Time 360 years
Time, times and half a time (change in times and law) ??

19 And I shall have to break the pride of your strength and make your heavens like iron and your earth like copper (Leviticus 26).

Roman History

313 Constantine recognises the Christian church and ends the persecution of Christians.
380 Theodosius makes Nicene Christianity the state religion.
395 Theodosius divides the Roman empire in two, creating the Western and Eastern Empires.
455 The Vandals sack Rome
476 Odoacer, a mercenary in the service of Roma, leader of the Germanic soldiers in the Roman army, deposes the western Roman emperor Romulus Augustulus, who abdicates, and thereby terminates the western Roman empire.
800  Charlemagne, king of the Franks, is crowned emperor by Pope Leo III and founds the Holy Roman Empire
811  The eastern Roman emperor recognized Charlemagne as emperor of Rome
1453 The Ottoman Turks under Mehmet II capture Constantinople (end of the Eastern Roman Empire)

The 10 Christian Roman Emperors during the political rise of Catholicism were:

http://www.roman-emperors.org/impindex.htm 

306-37: Constantine I (Nicene Christian)
337-40: Constantine II (Christian who freed Athanasius - Nicene sympathies)
337-61: Constantius II (Arian Christian)
337-50: Constans (Athanasian/Nicene Christian
[361-63: Julian the apostate (not a Christian at all)]
363-64: Jovian (Nicene Christian)
364-75: Valentinian I (Nicene Christian)
364-78: Valens (Arian Christian)
375-83: Gratian (Nicene Christian)
375-92: Valentinian II (Arian Christian)
379-95: Theodosius (Nicene Christian)

Valentinian’s (II) favoritism towards Arianism was also used against him by both Magnus Maximus and Theodosius. Theodosius supposedly wrote the young Valentinian a letter saying he got what he deserved from Maximus because he had deserted the true faith.[[18]] - http://www.roman-emperors.org/impindex.htm 

3 of these Roman Emperors were Arians and were presumably removed by pressure from the Nicene/Catholic church. This is the story of the rise of the false church of the Nicene Creed, the false church of the trinity, at the expense of the true church of Arianism. The 3 faithful Roman Emperors were therefore:

337-61: Constantius II (Arian Christian)
364-78: Valens (Arian Christian)
375-92: Valentinian II (Arian Christian)

The March of world powers since Satan was evicted from heaven and made to stand upon two feet like a man, actually possessing a man

1 In the first year of Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, Daniel himself beheld a dream and visions of his head upon his bed. At-that-time [!yId;aBe] he wrote down the dream itself. The complete account of the matters he told.
2 Daniel was speaking up and saying: I happened to be beholding in my visions during the night, and, see there! the 4 winds of the heavens were stirring up the vast sea.
3 And 4 huge beasts were coming up out of the sea, each one being different from the others [the sea of mankind. These could be political powers or religious powers]

4 The first one was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle [this is the heavenly dragon]. I kept on beholding until its wings were plucked out, and it was lifted up from the earth and was made to stand on 2 feet just like a man, and there was given to it the heart of a man [This is the dragon being thrown down to the earth to possess humans. So the angels of Satan's administration now are human with fleshly desires].
5 And, see there! another beast, a second [one], [this is evidently a double designation from the sense] it being like a bear. And on one side it was raised up, and there were 3 ribs in its mouth [under its political influence, it speaks for them. This is 25% of a body which has 12 ribs. So it could 'conquer/annex/anschluss' 25% of the EU i.e. around 7 countries - 3 ribs in its mouth could mean that it speaks for one quarter of mankind if associated with China (there are 12 ribs in a body. Russian population - approx 150 million, Chinese population - approx 1.4 Billion. One quarter of the world's population would be approx 1.75 Billion. Being raised up on one side could mean that on one side geographically it is against the countries on that side i.e: to the west and on the other side it is making alliances i.e: the east - China?] between its teeth [military power]; and this is what they [the teeth] were saying to it, 'Get up, eat much flesh.' [the teeth of the Russian, bear it's military, is saying eat much flesh, i.e. declare war on many peoples. but whether the bear actually does this is unclear. It might succeed in politically annexing 7 EU countries without eating too much flesh - as was the case in Crimea in 2014March for example]

6 After this I kept on beholding, and, see there! another [beast], one like a leopard, but it had 4 wings of a flying creature on its back [this beast is angelic, it is Zoar, the wings are of the 1NC and the 2NC saints]. And to-the-beast 4 heads [Gordon, then the 1NC reserves, then the descended 1NC Kings, then Melchizedek - the ancient of days. Jesus is the heavenly head, but this is an earthly beast], and rulership was given to her [Zoar conquers the Christian world at a speed comparable to Alexander the Great who was the original fulfilment of this beast. Or possibly this is the BRIC nations after a financial collapse caused by the 2nd/3rd fire signs?] 

7 After this I kept on beholding in the visions of the night, and, see there! a 4th beast, [one] being terrifying and terrible and unusually strong [might have been a triple description but there is no 'and' before 'being terrifying' which is a Chaldee peal passive participle BDAHCL]. And it had teeth of iron, big ones. It was devouring and crushing, and what was left it was treading down with its feet. And it was something different from all of the [-lk] beasts that were prior to it, and it had 10 horns.
8 I kept on considering the horns, and, look! another horn, a small [one], came up in among them, and there were 3 of the first horns that were plucked up from before it. And, look! there were eyes like the eyes of a man in this horn, and there was a mouth speaking grandiose things.

9 I kept on beholding until there were thrones placed [on 2017Iyyar16, the coronation] and the Ancient of Days sat down [Methuselah begins judgement?]. His clothing was white just like snow, and the hair of his head was like clean wool [2NC Kings]. His throne was flames of fire; its wheels were a burning fire.
10
There was a stream of fire flowing and going out from before him. There were 1,000 thousands that kept ministering to him [saints], and 10,000 10,000s that kept standing right before him [priests]. The Court took its seat, and there were books that were opened [books of salvation covenant names].
11
I kept on beholding at-that-time [!yId;aB] because of the sound of the grandiose words that the horn was speaking; I kept on beholding until the beast was killed and its body was destroyed and it was given to the burning fire.
12
But as for the remainder of [
raX, construct noun] the beasts, their rulerships were taken away, and there was a lengthening in life given to them for a season/appointed time [nmz] and a time [!d[] [The Acceptable year followed by 3 months from 2018Iyyar1-Ab14, the end of Zoar, the end of the world]

13 I kept on beholding in the visions of the night [new subaccount], and, see there! with the clouds of the heavens someone like a son of man happened to be coming; and to the Ancient of Days he gained access, and they brought him up close even before that One.
14
And to him there were given rulership and dignity and kingdom, that the peoples, national groups and languages should all serve even him. His rulership is an indefinitely lasting rulership that will not pass away, and his kingdom one that will not be brought to ruin.
15
As for me, Daniel, my spirit was distressed within on account of it, and the very visions of my head began to frighten me.
16
I went up close to one of those who were standing, that I might request from him reliable information on all this. And he said to me, as he went on to make known to me the very interpretation of the matters,
17
These the beasts, the great [ones] because they are 4, there are 4 kings that will stand up from the earth.
18
But the holy ones of the Supreme One will receive the kingdom, and they will possess the kingdom to time-indefinite, even to time-indefinite upon times-indefinite.'
19
Then it was that I desired to make certain concerning the beast, the 4th which proved to be different from all the others, extraordinarily fearsome, the teeth of which were of iron and the claws of which were of copper, which was devouring [and] crushing, and which was treading down even what was left with its feet;
20
and concerning the 10 horns that were on its head, and the other [horn] that came up and before which 3 fell, even that horn 

21 I kept on beholding when that very horn made war upon the holy ones, and it was prevailing against them,
22
until the Ancient of Days came [Methuselah, days are a human measurement of lifespan. God is the ancient of eons or actually of 'before' time itself] and judgment itself was given in favour of the holy ones of the Supreme One [Jesus], and the appointed time [
anmz] arrived and holy ones possessed the kingdom [2017Heshvan6, the late completed 3rd Holy Spirit Pentecost, the late 5th marriage Pentecost].
23
This is what he said, [as for] the beast, the 4th, a 4th kingdom will come to be in-the-earth, that will be different from all the [other] kingdoms; and it will devour all of the earth and will trample it down and crush it.
24
And the 10 horns, from her, the kingdom, are 10 kings [that] rise up; and another one rises up after them, and he himself will be different from the first ones, and 3 kings he will humiliate [10 kings of the UN clone. Also 10 months? the 11th horn is the EU which humiliates UK Germany and France on the UNSC].
25
And he will speak even words against the Most High [Jehovah], and he will harass continually the holy ones themselves of the Supreme One [1NC and 2NC saints of Jesus Christ, who is the supreme one in the kingdom]. And he will intend to change appointed times [
!ynmz] and law, and they [times and law or the holy ones?] will be given into his hand [5x] for a time [!d[] [], and times [!ynd[] [] and half a time [!d[] [] []
26
And the Court itself proceeded to sit, and his own rulership [] they took away, in order to annihilate [him] and to destroy [him] totally.
27
'And the kingdom and the rulership and the grandeur of [
yd] the kingdoms under all the heavens were given to the people who are the holy ones of the Supreme One []. Their kingdom is an indefinitely lasting kingdom, and all the rulerships will serve and obey even them.'
28
Up to this point is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my own thoughts kept frightening me a great deal, so that my very complexion changed in me; but the matter itself I kept in my own heart.

The Most High is Jehovah
The Supreme one is Jesus
The Ancient of days is Melchizedek.

Modern Military Beasts

4 The first one was like a lion, [1x] and it had the wings of an eagle [2x]. I kept on beholding until its wings were plucked out [2x], and it was lifted up from the earth [1x] and was made to stand on 2 feet just like a man, [10x] and there was given to it the heart of a man [1x] [UK world power from 1918Nisan, the first regnal year of the Watchtower/Belshazzar to WW2, when much of Britain's military power was destroyed. We had the heart of a man because we sacrificed ourselves to save the world and we gave the whole commonwealth independence if they wanted it. Perhaps the wings of the eagle were plucked out because the US stopped supporting us with air power after WW2? The Lion is the UK, the eagle is the US.]

5 And, see there! another beast, a second [one], [this is evidently a double designation from the sense] it being like a bear. [] And on one side it was raised up, and there were 3 ribs in its mouth [Counts 3x] between its teeth [military power] [21 upper and 21 lower teeth, 21 biting pairs, between 21 pairs, 21x. One cannot be between one tooth. One has to be between a pair of teeth]; and this is what they [who - axis powers?] were saying to it, 'Get up, eat much flesh. [total period of 34 months of the Russian Bear eating up eastern Europe at the end of WW2]

6 After this I kept on beholding, and, see there! another [beast], one like a leopard, but it had 4 wings of a flying creature on its back [US and UK air power?]. And to-the-beast 4 heads [China, Russia, France, and US-UK, the 4 heads of the UN Security Council], and rulership was given to her [The UN now has almost every nation in its general assembly].

7 After this I kept on beholding in the visions of the night, and, see there! a 4th beast, [one] being terrifying and terrible and unusually strong [the UN clone, the image of the UN Beast, a new UN beast resulting from the stagnation produced by the UNSC vetoes]. And it had teeth of iron, big ones [3x, Hebrew plural, number is not specified]. It was devouring and crushing, and what was left it was treading down with its feet [4 Feet, since all beasts have 4 of them]. And it was something different from all of the [-lk] beasts that were prior to it, and it had 10 horns [the 10 kings of Revelation 17. These appear after the UNSC is upstaged by the UN clone/image. This is not UN reform which is politically impossible. It is a new outfit, born following the 3rd fire sign. Counts 10x].
8 I kept on considering the horns, and, look! another horn, a small [one] [1x] came up in among them [the EU], and there were 3 of the first horns that were plucked up from before it [UK, France and Germany]. And, look! there were eyes like the eyes of a man in this horn [[How man sees is not how God sees 1Samuel16:7. It has the desires of man] [3x are removed and replaced by a horn with 2 eyes, i.e. 3x. Net result zero.], and there was a mouth speaking grandiose [ things] [2x] [This beast is not identified with an animal. Possibly because it is not entirely from this planet being made up of a large number of demon possessesed people] (Daniel 7).

7 But Jehovah said to Samuel: Do not look at his appearance and at the height of his stature, for I have rejected him. For not the way man sees [is the way God sees], because mere man sees what appears to the eyes. But as for Jehovah, he sees what the heart is (1Samuel16).

Just as the two feet supply blood to the 10 toes, so the UK/US two horned beast of Revelation13 breathes life into the image of the beast which is the 10 horned 4th beast of Daniel7. The first 3 beasts of Daniel7 are the first beast of Revelation 13 which ascends out of the sea. 

The 7th head gets healed but loses its headship and becomes a priest, giving life to the 10 toes. It is a priest to and a prophet of the 10 toes, our 
attempted murderer. It is not part of the 10 toes. The feet end and the toes start just as the head ended and the breasts started in Daniel2. The 8th king is SPQR, the 8th king of Rome, democracy, the takeover by Jezebel, the dethroning of Satan and his 7th world power by his own administration, the dragon. 

Look! Hosea is crying out and saying with the leopard and the bear swapped around...

7 And I shall become to them like a young lion. Like a leopard by [the] way I shall keep looking.
8 I shall encounter them like a bear that has lost its cubs, and I shall rip apart the enclosure of their heart. And I shall devour them there like a lion; a wild beast of the field itself will tear them to pieces.
9 It will certainly bring you to ruin, O Israel, because it was against me, against your helper.
10 Where, then, is your king, that he may save you in all your cities, and your judges, [concerning] whom you said: Do give me a king and princes?
11 I proceeded to give you a king in my anger, and I shall take [him] away in my fury (Hosea 13).

Now God took his Kingship away from the Samaritans in 723, when the Assyrians took Samaria under Shalmanezer. The Assyrians depicted themselves as a Lion with the two wings of an eagle. You can see statues of such beasts in the British Museum in London. These statues have been recovered from Assyrian Palaces. God took his Kingship away finally from Judah at the appointment of Jehoiakim, which was on 608Chislev10 - see [97]. The first agricultural year without God as King therefore started in 607Tishri. At this time we know from the coded symbolism of Daniel 4 that the heart of the tree representing God's rulership was changed from the heart of a man to the heart of a beast. Whereas we read of the Lion/Eagle of Daniel 7, that its wings were plucked out and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand upon 2 feet like a man and it was given the heart of a man. 

The Babylonians were, like the Egyptians, God's prison warden for his people. This is an elevation in spiritual position from a mere animalistic Beast of the earth. And Nebuchadnezzar was humbled by God so that he developed a spiritual heart, a man's heart, rather than having the heart of an animal, which knows nothing spiritual. 

27 And it came about in the 37th year of the exile of Jehoiachin the king of Judah, in the 12th month, on the 27th day of the month, that Evil-merodach the king of Babylon, in the year of his becoming king, raised up the head of Jehoiachin the king of Judah out of the house of detention;
28
and he began to speak good things with him, and then put his throne higher than the thrones of the kings that were with him in Babylon.
29
And he took off his prison garments; and he ate bread constantly before him all the days of his life.
30
As for his allowance, an allowance was constantly given him from the king, daily as due, all the days of his life (Jeremiah 52).

Word Symbolisms

The Event symbolism is about Kings over the Jews, God's first people from Abraham's sons. The Account symbolisms are about Kings over the Christians, God's second people from Abraham's sons by covenant. There are two word threads, one thread is sacred, the other is secular.

Word1 secular and Word2 is spiritual because FDS4 can have 10 horns but not have 10 kings, we are not a multi-headed democracy. Also Word2 forces the 3rd beast (called another beast) actually to be the 3rd beast, since the 2nd and 4th beasts are called such. But Word1 allows for the 2nd and 3rd beasts to be transposed, so by the ambiguity principle they are transposed.

I kept on beholding means: Gordon kept doing research. 

3 4 huge beasts were coming up out of the sea, each one being different from the others (Daniel 7)

17 As for these huge beasts, because there are 4, there are 4 kings that will stand up from the earth (Daniel 7).

So the Beasts, the Kingdoms, come from the sea, but the Kings of these kingdoms, come from the earth.

Word1 - Modern Military Thread

1 In the first year of Belshazzar, the king of Babylon, Daniel himself beheld a dream and visions of his head upon his bed. At-that-time [!yda] he wrote down the dream itself. The complete account of the matters he told.
2 Daniel was speaking up and saying: I happened to be beholding in my visions during the night, and, see there! the 4 winds/spirits of the heavens [Melchizedek, Michael, Gabriel and Satan] were stirring up the vast sea [of mankind].
3 And 4 huge beasts were coming up out of the sea, each one being different from the others [so they are not all incarnations of the UN]
4 The first one was like a lion [UK power], and it had the wings of an eagle [US power]. I kept on beholding until its wings were plucked out [air power transferred to the UN], and [temporal disconnect in this thread. 'And' can mean after, before or during] it was lifted up from the earth [becoming spiritual, having a role over God's people] and was made to stand on 2 feet just like a man [2 true churches the JWs in the US and the LWs in the UK], and there was given to it the heart of a man [could see spiritually].
5 And, see there! another beast, a second [one], [this is evidently a double designation from the sense] it being like a bear. And on one side it was raised up [Bears on all 4 legs raise up a front arm/leg before they clobber you - this is Russia raised up to attack Eastern Europe and the 'stans' of the middle and far east, after having been provoked by the Nazis], and there were 3 ribs in its mouth [political control] between its teeth [military power] [3 ribs being 3/12ths or 3/24ths genetically of mankind - Adam's ribs]; and this is what they [the teeth, its military people] were saying to it, 'Get up, eat much flesh.' [Conquer Eastern Europe and the northern middle east]
6 After this I kept on beholding, and, see there! another [beast], one like a leopard [predatory, fast conquest of the world] , but it had 4 wings of a flying creature on its back [it supports the 4 wings of the UK/US power. They ride its back]. And to-the-beast 4 heads [5 Permanent Members of the UN Security Council, UK-US is one head], and rulership was given to her [UN ruled over every nation including the Vatican up to and after 2008Nisan14].

7 After this I kept on beholding in the visions of the night, and, see there! a 4th beast, [one] being terrifying and terrible and unusually strong [might have been a triple description but no 'and' before 'being terrifying' which is a Chaldee peal passive participle BDAHCL] [the UN clone]. And it had teeth of iron, big ones [large strong military machine]. It was devouring and crushing, and what was left it was treading down with its feet [Bears have 20 toes, 5 on each foot. Lions have 18, 4 on the front paws and 5 on the back paws. Leopards have 16, 4 on each. But this beast is not defined as to its toes. Perhaps we just count the 4 feet?]. And it was something different from all of the [-lk] beasts that were prior to it, and it had 10 horns [the 10 kings of Revelation 17. These appear after the UNSC is upstaged by the image of the UN. Which is NOT a reformed UN but a new body, a son of the UN, with the US/UK power putting in its spirit of life, its software, its philosophy, into this son, this image, following the 3rd fire sign.].
8 I kept on considering the horns, and, look! another horn, a small [one], came up in among them [the EU], and there were 3 of the first horns that were plucked up from before it [UK, France and Germany]. And, look! there were eyes like the eyes of a man in this horn [How man sees is not how God sees 1Samuel 16:7. It has the desires of man], and there was a mouth speaking grandiose things [the EU political monopoly will corrupt the UN worldwide political monopoly].

9 I kept on beholding until there were thrones placed and the Ancient of Days sat down. His clothing was white just like snow, and the hair of his head was like clean wool. His throne was flames of fire; its wheels were a burning fire.
10
There was a stream of fire flowing and going out from before him. There were 1,000 thousands that kept ministering to him, and 10,000 10,000s that kept standing right before him. The Court took its seat, and there were books that were opened.

11 I kept on beholding at-that-time [!yda] because of the sound of the grandiose words that the horn was speaking; I kept on beholding until the beast was killed and its body was destroyed and it was given to the burning fire.
12
But as for the remainder of [
raX, construct noun] the beasts, their rulerships were taken away, and there was a lengthening in life given to them for a season/appointed time [nmz] and a time [!d[] [The Acceptable year followed by 3 months from 2018Iyyar1-Ab14, the end of Zoar, the end of the world] (Daniel7). 

4 kings that will stand up from the earth  4 last secretary generals of the UN in the last 7 years (Kofi Annan being the first of these 4), when the UN has world headship. He is the 7th in total. The 10 horns of Revelation 13 have 10 diadems, which are the 10 secretary generals - see [158].
3 horns plucked up Little horn humiliates 3 of the 4th beast power kings. This is the EU finally humiliating presumably  the US/UK power (although we have done a pretty good job of this ourselves!) The EU will achieve this through the new EU constitution of Giscard D'estang - which is 'just a tidying up exercise' like the Common Market was 'just a trading deal', yes, a trading deal with a constitution! Just as the Treaty of Versailles gave us the second world war so the constitution of the EU will give us Armageddon no problem. The EU, which the 20th century has proved cannot guarantee even its own national security, will at the end, through the EU, control the UN clone which is the ultimate guarantor of all international security. Call it conceit, call it hypocrisy, call it arrogance, call it what you will, but there will be no international security once this occurs. 
Holy ones get kingdom  of Zoar on 2017Heshvan6

12 And the 10 horns that you saw mean 10 kings, who have not yet received a kingdom, but they do receive authority as kings one hour with the wild beast (Revelation 17).

Brother Gangas (the 11th governing body member) died at 8:50 am on July 28th 1994, i.e. 1994Ab17. He died clean in the flesh.

The Holy spirit is making comparisons, elucidating patterns of power in the World and in the true church. It always works the same way. First you have the visionary, Michael Collins in the case of the IRA. Then you have the opportunist, the little horn, De Valera, in the case of the IRA (if the movie with Liam Nieson and Julia Roberts is to be believed). The opportunist betrays his own people for the sake of personal power.

Well the Franks under Charlemagne started the Holy Roman Empire, the little horn of the event symbolism, and the French started the EU which is the little horn of the physical word symbolism of the vision of the night. So in both cases the French succeed in controlling Europe through lies and the pen, rather than through the more Anglo Saxon method of the sword and an enforced commonwealth. 

One does have to admire the intelligence of the French politicians (whilst understanding and detesting their dishonesty and conceit). The British declare war and then, having killed a whole bunch of people, they create a commonwealth which increases our commercial success. The French go straight to the commonwealth part (which they even went as far as calling the common market) completely leapfrogging (no pun intended) the rather messy war stage. 

So the French control of Europe was firstly through a false theocratic bureaucracy, the Holy Roman Empire and then secondly through a false democratic bureaucracy, the EU. Truly the pen is mightier than the sword. It is absolutely incredible to the writer that the bible uses the same set of words to describe both French power games. But there again...

Le plus ca change, le plus c'est la meme chose!!

Then we have this incredible comparison between the procession of Word powers, from Babylon to Rome and the procession of wolrd powers in the 20th century from the Anglo American through Russia to the 4 headed UN and finally the 10 king UN, and the 4 true religions from FDS1 to FDS4. Talk about making the connection and seeing the pattern! The Holy Spirit is exuberant in its perspicacity.

The steps necessary to succeed in the Tory party in the UK according to a documentary in the mid 1990s were:

  1. Accept all of their doctrine

  2. Do not propound any new ideas of your own

  3. Turn up at all of the meetings

  4. Zealously proclaim the Tory party doctrine at every opportunity

  5. Follow the instructions of the leaders and support them fully

These steps were identical to the steps necessary to succeed in the Jehovah's Witnesses (or the Hitler youth movement for that matter), or even become one of them, at that time. This is because all three outfits were corrupted by the same person: Satan. Once Labour took power in the UK Satan corrupted them to the point of their starting an unjstified war on a false pretext and regulating the banks so badly that they collapsed. No bureacrat was sacked in either case of course. All credit to Robin Cook (who died shortly after doing the right thing) and Clare Short, whose consciences led them to resign over the decision to invade Iraq unless Saddam gave up the weapons that he did not have. So he did a better job on them than he did on the Tories before them.

Jehovah's organisation should be the opposite, namely:

  1. Do not have to accept all doctrine, just some fundamental bascis. 

  2. Research as many ideas of your own as possible, for this is the first commandment:

37 He said to him: You must love Jehovah your God with your whole heart and with your whole soul and with your whole mind (Matthew 22).

1 Consequently I entreat you by the compassions of God, brothers, to present your bodies a sacrifice living, holy, acceptable to God, a sacred service with your power of reason (Romans 12).

  1. Do not have to turn up at any meetings unless you want to (not under law)

  2. No obligation to proclaim anything unless you actually want to (not under law)

  3. No obligation to follow instructions from leaders unless these instructions are also from God in your opinion.

And the comparison goes further than this for the Watchtower is a harlot which has been sitting on the UN wild beast for the 10 years from January 28th 1992 to October 9th 2001 - see [246].

Notes

The League of Nations only had 2 secretary generals from 1920 to 1940 Eric Drummond and then Joseph Avenol, Lister was made secretary general from 1940-1946 as the last act of the LN.

First saw the LN and the UN, kept on beholding and saw the image, kept on beholding and saw the 10 king UN.

Earth appears 4 times, so two meanings. The event symbolism and physical word symbolism is: Governments of the earth, and the spiritual word symbolism is: All religious administrations.

Time appears 3 times [!d[], so it has 3 meanings: 360 days, 360 years and one month.

_______________________________________________________________________________________

Previous incorrect triple description interpretation

The two further fulfilments in the religious thread

The first religious fulfilment has the 4 beasts as FDS1,2,3,4. 

But there are 2 further 4th beasts, which either appear 4th (with respect to the first 3 beasts) or are seen by Gordon 4th (with respect to the first 3 beasts). Well the order of discovery was FDS1, FDS3, FDS4, FDS2, WSS2, WSS1. The positions first, second and fourth are not absolute, they are with respect to the other three beasts.

We know that order must be preserved either of appearance or of discovery so this leaves us with :

FDS1, FDS2, FDS3, FDS4 (appears 4th out of these 4)
FDS1, FDS2, FDS3, WSS2 (seen 4th out of the 4. FDS2 was not seen second, and FDS3 was not seen third but both are just another beast in this strand)
FDS1, FDS2, FDS3, WSS1 (seen 4th out of these 4)

Here is the symbolism for the WSS2 as the 4th beast:

Fourth beast WSS2/GNS2, Apostate FDS3, after 1995Tishri15, the wicked and sluggish slave
Teeth of iron Inflexible heavenly class guided, 1NC remnant controlled food.
Trampling what was left with feet Oppresses the remnant ten times, 1994Elul - 2004Elul when many escape to FDS4.
What was left Remnant of the 1NC and 2NC saints
10 kings

10 governing body brothers on 1995Tishri15. The start of  WSS2/GNS2

Brother Gangas (the 11th governing body member) died at 8:50 am on July 28th 1994, i.e. 1994Ab17. He died clean in the flesh.

Small horn Head of Nethinim in the Watchtower, the head of the SS, the sluggish slave, he humiliates 3 of the original 10 governing body members.
Eyes like the eyes of a man in the horn He sees physically.
Time, times and half a time (change times and law) ??
4 Kings Jesus, Paul, Russell, Henschel

Two further fulfilments in the physical thread

The order of the secular powers over Christians is Romans, Babylon, UK/US, League of Nations, UN5, UN10, UNGA (the General Assembly controlled UN).

In this thread the two further fulfilments for two further 4th beasts must have the second beast as appearing second with respect to the other 3 beasts. So we have:

League of Nations, UN5, UN10, UNGA
Romans, Babylon, Anglo American, UN5
Anglo American, League of Nations, UN5, UN10

Even the UN5, has the 10 kings of the 4th beast unofficially, these being the 10 kings who have not yet received a kingdom. For Revelation 17 reads:

12 And the 10 horns that you saw mean 10 kings, who have not yet received a kingdom, but they do receive authority as kings one hour with the wild beast (Revelation 17).

They do receive a kingdom in 2005Nisan (we now know - 26th advert) - see [158].

The Romans had an eagle of this battle standards, the UN has 4 heads, because it has 4 secretary generals during its 7 years of headship. The reader can fill the tables in for the 4 beasts himself. The writer is tired.

Beast Counts

4 The first one was like a lion, [10x] and it had the wings of an eagle [2x]. I kept on beholding until its wings were plucked out [2x], and it was lifted up from the earth [1x] and was made to stand on 2 feet just like a man, [10x] and there was given to it the heart of a man [1x] [26x? UK world power from 1915Nisan, the first regnal year of Jesus, to 1941Nisan, when much of Britain's military power was destroyed. We had the heart of a man because we sacrificed ourselves to save the world. Perhaps the wings of the eagle were plucked out because it took the Americans 2 years before they joined us in the fight due to Pearl Harbour!].

5 And, see there! another beast, a second [one], [this is evidently a double designation from the sense] it being like a bear. [10x] And on one side it was raised up, and there were 3 ribs in its mouth [Counts 3x] between its teeth [military power] [21 upper and 21 lower teeth, 21 biting pairs, between 21 pairs, 21x. One cannot be between one tooth. One has to be between a pair of teeth]; and this is what they [who - axis powers?] were saying to it, 'Get up, eat much flesh. [total period of 34 months of the Russian Bear eating up eastern europe at the end of WW2]

6 After this I kept on beholding, and, see there! another [beast], one like a leopard, [10x] but it had 4 wings of a flying creature on its back [4x]. And to-the-beast 4 heads [4x.7x=28x], and rulership was given to her [42x] [42 months of authority of the beast in the Kingdom of God according to Revelation 12].

7 After this I kept on beholding in the visions of the night, and, see there! a 4th beast, [one] being terrifying and terrible and unusually strong [] [the UN clone]. And it had teeth of iron, big ones [3x, Hebrew plural, number is not specified]. It was devouring and crushing, and what was left it was treading down with its feet [4 Feet, since all beasts have 4 of them]. And it was something different from all of the [-lk] beasts that were prior to it, and it had 10 horns [the 10 kings of Revelation 17. These appear after the UNSC is upstaged by UN reform following the 3rd fire sign. Counts 10x].
8 I kept on considering the horns, and, look! another horn, a small [one], came up in among them [the EU], and there were 3 of the first horns that were plucked up from before it [UK, France and Germany]. And, look! there were eyes like the eyes of a man in this horn [it could see spiritually. 3x are removed and replaced by a horn with 2 eyes, i.e. 3x. Net result zero.], and there was a mouth speaking grandiose [things] [2x]
