Ans: well, this is found in Rev 13:1-3 and Daniel 7:23-24. As it is written
“And I stood upon the sand on the sea and saw a beast rise up out of the sea having seven heads and ten horns and upon his horns ten crowns and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard and his feet were as the feet of a beer and is mouth as a mouth of a lion and the dragon gave him his power and his seat and great authority.
And I saw one of his head as it was wounded to death and his deadly wound was healed and all the world wondered after the beast.
The beast Daniel saw of old is the 4thworld government after Iraq the first, Iran the second, Rome the third (Dan 2:37-39, Daniel 5:30-31, Lk 2:1-3)
Then the American UN the 4th with is military – nuclear, political – democratic and culture – Olympic game. (Dan 2:40-43)
The 4th kingdom of UNO draws 193 membership today from 7 continents of the world namely:
- North America
- South America
- Green lands.
These are the seven heads of the beast John saw.
In the past old conservative eschatologists thought it was seven mountain of Rome, some ascribe it to 7 empires none is able to explain the 10 horns of the beast.
But today it is clear that the 10 horns out of the beast which is the 4th kingdom/world government, it is the 10 nuclear power nations of the world.
Let us see them in Daniel 7:23-24, as it is written:
“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 Daniel saw the nuclear power military weapon of the 4th kingdom as a destroyer and breaker of the earth into pieces quite different from the 1st, 2nd 3rd kingdoms before it that used a sword, hammer, spear, bows & arrows as their military. Think about it.
There in verse 24:
“And the 10 horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise and another shall rise after them and he shall be diverse from the first and he shall subdue three kings.”
Here is wisdom, the ten horns are the 10 kings or presidents or nations that shall come out of the nuclear 4th kingdom.
The same are 10 nuclear power nations for horn in the bible represents power.
Today we see the fulfilment. The 10 nuclear power nations are:
- North Korea
- Iran (not clear).
The “Another” shall rise and be different from the “First”.
The first nuclear power nation in the 4th kingdom is America; Who used an atomic nuclear bomb to destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki cities of Japan in 1945 that ended the 2nd world war. It is on record. (google.com)
This is the first time nuclear bomb has been used in the world after it no country has used it because the time has not come.
Though nations have it in their military arsenal yet none is bold to use it because of its’ mass destruction effect.
It is believed that Russia which is different in many ways from America is another nuclear nation to rise (Ezek 38:1-15).
And when he rises, that shall be after the rapture, he shall subdue the first documented or proved beyond every reasonable doubt to be America and two more nuclear world power nations believed to be Britain and France in the western political bloc with America.
His ambition is to have supremacy over UN world government leadership in other to control nations. (Rev 13:7-8)
So you can see the summary of the matter:
We are the 4th kingdom the old prophet saw: the America UN of peace.
Today’s UN of peace has 7 heads meaning 7 continents from where it draws its membership.
UN was formed in 1945 the year nuclear atomic bomb was created and used by the America and nuclear race started.
Today the UN of peace has 10 nuclear power nations ready for nuclear war. But cannot start until the rapture of believers shall take place. (1 Thess 5:9, Rev 3:10).
