Discontinuity - A Deadly Wound

The verses of Daniel's description of the fourth beast rising up from the sea follow;

Dan 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.
Dan 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

Now, the fourth beast aligns with the construction of the pale horse system of the fourth seal, and it follows that the structural "inconsistency" in the fourth part (of the earth) must be filled with the emotional consensus (Hell); as we see in the first (lion) beast to whom the heart of a man was given.

The beast may devour (other beasts) and the dialectic devices may accumulate but never more than those logical three and the synthetic one of consensus; In some manner one or more "dialectics" must be broken to pieces and devoured (assimilated) and the remainder is ejected and trampled upon.

In the sequence of kingdoms we have Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome followed by the kingdom of God, the seventh. However the kingdom of God is not of this world and can not be infiltrated and subverted from within: only the worldly institutions of the earth like the "church" may be so subverted.

So, If satan were to set up a final kingdom that would dialectically incorporate the true Israel of Christ's body; there would be a total of eight kingdoms minimum. Then there is a complete discontinuity between the two constructions of satans tail, between the first four, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, and the latter four Greece and Rome, kingdom of God, NWO.

Where the new world order would be the final eighth kingdom which includes the supposedly subverted kingdom of God. (Which is not and can never be subverted, as it dwells in God.)

There is also a sequence of NT kingdoms as before; Holy Roman empire, Spain, England, the USSR, Nazi Germany and finally the USA. (Of which there are six; yet the subverted kingdom of God appears as the eighth; and is "of the seven". (the true Kingdom of God preceded the Holy Roman empire.)

So, as the kingdom of God is seventh we expect in both time-lines for the eighth to be "Antichrist." The former has the eighth the same of God subverted; the latter the synthesis of the still continuing Kingdom of God with the latter four of the NT era.

The effect: the seven is (still) the seventh and the eighth is "of the seven".

Really? Well, no.

Such a sequence would still leave a discontinuity in the tail of the dragon: the first four kingdoms from the earth of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the image are thus totally disjoint from the set of four found in the quartet of Daniel's beasts from the sea. The result? the final position of the tail has no intersection with the first, and at the cross of Christ a deadly wound to the beast has arrived.

Then as to satans solution? Combine the latter four into one beast; accumulate it and assemble it over time to supplant the kingdom of God as the seventh and leave Antichrist as the eighth to follow in the form of those that worship the image of the same singular beast. (Hell follows after.)

So, the Holy Roman empire and Spain are "ejected" from the plan and only the latter four of Britain, the USSR, Nazi Germany and the USA remain: (In fact then by construction of the pale horse, only the USA remains as "the beast").

So, what would such a discontinuity at the cross mean for satan? It would show that at the cross there was a kingdom made by God unable to be subverted: with four kingdoms prior and four after; There is a set of two balances where there absolutely must, must be two different choices for unity coincident at the same time: Thus two different facts that before and after the cross do not agree except in one position - the cross of Christ itself to which they must be opposed.

In the four previous kingdoms the dragon lay in wait for Christ, to devour His Kingdom. In the latter quartet the dragon issues a flood (people speaking like dragons) to carry away the woman in John's vision. Christ's words speak it best:

Rev 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

In essence, What went before Christ - as Rome prepared to destroy the Kingdom of God by "killing with the sword" never agrees with what opposed His gospel word after, that of captivity in antichrist and of the false prophet.

However, Christ brings life and sets the captive free; so there is no agreement in OT Rome and the NT quartet that could supplant the Kingdom of God (Except at Armageddon possibly?) We patiently wait for the last day, and we keep our faith that Christ's Kingdom is not of this world.

Then the deadly wound to the beast is found as the discontinuity between being killed and being taken captive. The modern day equivalent is found in the image to the beast, a combination of being kept captive in the image system and being made to engage the system with the dialectic (Death) if there is any objection to the image or "Hell" in the middle. It is this scarlet beast that is the eighth and is of the seven.

So, what is the seventh? If the kingdom of God gave the beast a deadly wound that is irreconcilable with the grace of God, then what? Clearly the last kingdom which is composed of an amalgam of four (three onto one) to form the modern day NWO in the form of the USA is (when the Kingdom of God is included) - the eighth. However if that is the case regardless of whether the Kingdom of God is subverted or not: the tail of the dragon (all snake) has a discontinuity at the cross and is dead with a fatal wound.

Rather, the deadly wound is in truth healed by the dragon in replacing the seventh (the Kingdom of God) in the count with the NWO in the form of the USA and then to build this latter days scarlet beast as the eighth: comprised of features of all the first six and the last NT kingdom of the USA and its three beastly forebears combined into one.

Then the eighth is of the seven; in that it has survived the seven and is now infiltrating as the eighth - which is a particular representation of the false prophet that as "little horn" covets the bride of Christ and pimps her to the beast she rides, all for "growth" (great things).

So then there are clearly seven horns on the beast from Egypt to the NWO (and three horns that fell to make the NWO by combining their features to form it) The little horn then is the result in the sea of the "pale horse" system of Death in the Earth; As an "eleventh" rather than the eighth - the little horn is that "small strength" that has survived all the seven kingdoms of satan and in whom is found the accumulated intersection (join) of the dragon's tail with the deadly wound healed.

The result of satan's solution? Re-introduce the state of Israel to supplant the elect of Jesus Christ (God) as the "chosen people". With the little horn then, there is evidence in the text that the Holy Roman and Spanish empires play little part in the present state of this modern time-line, if at all.
