The Four Beasts

Firstly we note that these beasts are built rising up out of the sea - which in revelation is upon triples rather than singletons of the octal groups. (The sea is comprised of thirty octals in seven symbols.) In view therefore they are static "bows" rather than singleton elements, (singletons we may relate to the unity element or "the restrainer" i.e. "rest element" in the field GF(8)).

Dan 7:1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters.
Dan 7:2 Daniel spoke and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.
Dan 7:3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
Dan 7:4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle 's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man 's heart was given to it.
Dan 7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.
Dan 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it.
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.

As we have already interpreted the seals in revelation we may apply the same identities to the four kingdoms here - albeit promoting the first beast to the second seal etc, where the "extra seal" is actually the carnal balance of the senses added upon the restraint of God over those whom would call themselves His people..

The kingdom of the lion is directly referencing the kingdom of Britain (The lion is a symbol of British royalty.) There were eagles wings removed - corresponding to the USA rebelling against the crown and declaring their independence from it. The lion itself is lifted up (not in action but by appearance, as a lion rampant) stood on its feet like a man - and a mans heart was given it.

By interpretation the carnal balances of the senses ("Hell") is the man's heart given to the kingdom, we may consider that the rule in the kingdom forms a single antichrist "bow" with some election promise to be kept, and the opposing balance found in the two seal system is such as to "vote them out" when election time comes. (that they should kill each other.) Thus there is a mutually exclusive relation; either the government opposes the people and is voted out, or the state of affairs continues another time. In any case, the decision to vote a party out of government is made by a man's heart - as to whether it be good (pleasureable) for him or not so. (Things are hardly likely to be totally absolute.) It should be noted that the two seal system only describes the right to vote a government out, not in! The "man's heart" is an indicator of democracy.

Addendum
The two eagles wings posed a conundrum, we also see in the revelation as well as Ezekiel's vision of the cherubim that wings on beasts are equivalent to unique mappings (as if multiplication) from one element of the structure to another. In these two wings we would expect to be able to move the place of legal rule to that of the whim of the heart and that of the heart to legal rule. What we see is the autonomy of colonial states by separating themselves from the rule of Britain (as did the USA, to whom the analogy is made.) The colonies were once ruled by governors under parliament, not always with the consent of the governed, as parliament should operate; so we see this beasts with its wings then "plucked off" because the synthesis is not sustainable: - It were as if "they were given a great sword that they should kill each other".


The bear kingdom we identify with the USSR (i.e. the Russian bear). There are three ribs, (cf antichrist "bows") in it's mouth (I.e. it's speech) We may attribute this to a three seal system of thesis/antithesis gives synthesis. The thesis is capitalism, the antithesis is communism. The bear is seen risen up on one side - to the extreme pole of communism. The result of communism is to totally oppose capitalism and when the people in a near country compromise between the two (employing the "Hell" balance) then accepting some form of moderate socialism, the USSR bear would "arise and devour much flesh" and swallows up that country with it's lukewarm citizenry for the good of the workers, and therefore the bear feeds to add to its own territory. The "flesh" is an indicator of the group A5 between the thesis and antithesis of inverses applied to the opposite poles of communism and capitalism.

The three "ribs" are shapes akin to the"bows" we saw in the seals of revelation. There are three ribs in the mouth of the bear, and we may equate the synthesis of the third bow to be filled with the carnal "balance". The third "rib" is then the cycle of opposition (upon the oil), compromise (accompanied with wine), acquisition (agreement) analogous to "the lust of the eyes, of the flesh and the pride of life" respectively.

Communism declares that "peace" is the world under communism, and peace is not possible any other way. (Just thought I'd throw that in there.)


The leopard we associate with Nazi Germany of the last century. A similar triple of triples or balance is set up as was with the bear, but the intent is for the synthesis (of socialism) to be stable on its own - a balance formed into a 3-seal system with the fourth "Hell" balance constructed to promote extreme nationalism. (To oppose the acquisition by communism.) The centre or synthesis is become a position of extreme belief in national superiority, (faith that "hell" justifies one to be the master race) that through strength of will, communism would run with it's tail between its legs and capitalism would grow fat and lazy.

In a four seal system we have four balances. Each comprised of three "bows". The carnal sensual balance is free to be applied to any of the four above, communism, capitalism, nationalist socialism and (lastly) racial-superiority (eugenics) to fill the missing "balance". These four configurations represent the four "wings" on the back on the leopard: The carnal balance may be used to "fly into place" quickly as desired. The effort is to "close the system".

Hitler once said something like "People who see in National Socialism merely a political movement have missed the point,... For it is a religion."

The four heads on the beast then, do they represent the four systems of balances, or do they represent the four kingdoms that oversaw the dismantling of the German state after their defeat (The UK, USA, USSR and France)? I am inclined to believe the former - as it has four heads itself, not "following after it", and because it (the leopard) was given dominion. There is a movement of the "hell" over the people in the presence of the carnal balance in four places: in truth - this is a kingdom of four states in union together. Am I without reason assuming that Daniel equates "kingdoms" with "heads"?

Daniel's fourth beast has no mention of seven heads; therefore I would deduce that Daniel consistently refers to kingdoms as having "horns" for dominions, and that by "heads" he meant, "minds" or "paradigms". Without unravelling the Nazi mindset (which is thoroughly occult) I would attest that the four wings indicate a closed mindset to one of the four, as we would expect the six wings on John's throne room beasts to permute the six non-unity element to close the system and as Ezekiel's Cherubims with four wings permute themselves amongst the four earthy elements themselves. The leopard has four wings to fill up the four elements of the wormwood device of the trumpets in revelation, it is "given dominion" by being given the balance of "Hell".

So, the leopard's heads represent aspects of it's paradigm. It is not "double minded" but has a "fourfold mind". For every set of triple balances, the carnal balance fills the space left in the restraint (of one seal remaining). The details to fill the four possible balances with "Hell" are not given in the text or here,. though one could consider them as "thesis/antithesis" gives "synthesis" as long as they hold some carnal agenda fixed.


The fourth beast we have adequately described in depth in revelation. We state it is the USA, or the USA led "new world order" (NWO). We note that the little horn rises up after three states fail (as did the state of Israel that begins the NWO) to provide the false prophet with the doctrine as well as the necessary freedom to allow the image system of ten kings to begin anchoring the church in doctrinal free-fall. (A vast falling away.)

In the strength of that horn, is found eyes like the eyes of man (coveting - c.f. lust of the eyes) and a mouth speaking great things, (promising great growth, albeit of tares.) The horn as the (doctrine of the) state of Israel is separate from the image formed of ten kings, but is yet on the beast itself, (as a vassal state or it's doctrinal result of/in the USA); and doctrinally the result of leavening (in the churches) leads to the church beast being judged - then finally found in fornication with the USA beast and "beasts of the earth", riding the beast out of admiration for the doctrine of this small state. (Which has survived all seven kingdoms of the dragon, all ten horns of the beast; and is the mind of the image of churches - the beast.) The false doctrine and it's method of transmission from the dragon through the church is covered in the three woes of revelation's trumpets sequence.

We will leave the explanation of the fourth beast to later verses in the chapter.
