Did you know that the United States of America was foretold by almighty God even before there was the United States? Its time to dust off your bibles because this is so amazing it will drop your jaw! That is right, 2300 years before the signing of the declaration of Independence God almighty spoke to one man in a vision about it, and the end of human government upon the world, and the start of the Kingdom of God.
In fact, there is still another one thousand years ahead of us when Jesus comes back to rule and to reign on earth. Bringing total peace and putting an end to all war for one thousand years.
Isa 2:4 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
Mankind has been allowed to rule himself for a long time to learn the hard lesson that he cannot rule himself and is in need of a savior Jesus Christ the Righteous. So Jesus is coming to establish his kingdom that shall never pass away or never be destroyed and we are getting near to it, even at the door.
Let’s go to Daniel chapter 12 starting with verse 8
Dan 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
Dan 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Everything we are about to learn in Daniel he had no understanding of it, because it was not meant to be revealed until the end of time, or the end of human government right before the return of Christ. You and I right now are living in the time of the end and God has revealed these things to us because we are living in the last days.
Here we go, Daniel chapter 7 starting with verse one through three.
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 spake 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. Bible prophecy is written in symbols and we do not have to guess what these are, they are four beasts.
Dan 7:4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings.
Dan 7:5 And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear
Dan 7:6 After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard.
And then he saw the ten-horned beasts in the vision of Daniel in chapter 7. So, what do these beast symbolize? It is told to us what these symbols mean later on in verse 17 of the same chapter.
Dan 7:17 These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth. But that’s not all it says, look what it says in verse 23.
Dan 7:23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
So these beast symbolize kings and kingdoms, we don’t have to guess, this is not a private interpretation, it plainly tells us what it means. They simply symbolize a nation along with the ruler of that nation.
So are these nations on the earth right now? Lets go back to Daniel chapter 7 verse 4.
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.
Which country on the earth today has an animal symbol of a lion?
Obviously, Great Britain has the official animal symbol of the lion.
Furthermore, Great Britain is the United States Mother country. Daniel saw the Eagles wings being plucked from the Lion. God was showing Daniel the declaration of Independence thousands of years before it ever happened! We are the eagles wings. Look on the back of any one dollar bill, or on a silver dollar, and there you will see the eagle, Americas official animal symbol of these United States of America.
And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.
Yes, the God of heaven and earth is about to set up shop and we will crown him King of Kings and Lord of Lords when he returns to this earth to rule and reign. And the best part is those that are truly born again will rule and reign with Him our Lord and King.
