The Last Breath of the Beast
Let us consider again the prophecy concerning the beast in Daniel, Ezra, and Yochanan (see Appendix A). These prophecies are open for various interpretations. Just because the present author has chosen one it does not mean he has weighed it more than the others.
For instance, there is ambiguity as to which of the ten unions (ten kings) and in what order they will cease to exist as political entities. Another one is whether the E.U. will disintegrate and when; which of the unions are the last four, and which are the last two that the Sovereign has preserved for the end, etc.
Below is just a possible scenario of the last events among other scenarios. We read,
After the time of that kingdom shall arise great strivings, and it shall stand in peril of failing: nevertheless it shall not then fall, but shall be restored again to his beginning. (2Es_12:18)
A beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads names of blasphemy. … And the dragon gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority. And one of his heads was, as it were, wounded to death: and he was resurrected from the wound of death, and the whole world was amazed after the beast. (Rev_13:1-3)
The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits, are seven kings: five have fallen, and one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he has to remain a little while. And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes to destruction. And the ten horns are ten kings who have not yet received a reign, but receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. They have one mind, and they shall give their power and authority to the beast. Rev_17:9-14
The fourth kingdom on earth is different from all other kingdoms, and it devours all the earth, tramples it down and crushes it. And ten kings shall arise from this kingdom. And another king shall rise after them, and he is different from the first ten. Dan_7:23-25
The interpretation: the seven empires in chapter Babylon The Great had one thing in common and this is the reason why they are given in the prophecy: they all ruled over the Land of Israel and the order of their reign is as follows: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, Rome, and Turkey. They all had fallen and the empire that was, and is not, and is of the seven has already come out of them which can only mean that it has been born out of the ashes of the seven in order to rule the world in the last days. This eight empire resurrected from the wound of death is the New World Order or the ten horned beast that is already in existence today.
The ten horned beast is a political, military, and territorial entity; this is the eight and last empire comprised by ten political, economical, and military blocs: E.U., ASEAN +3, NAU, EurASEC, UNASUR, CCASG, ANZUS, SAARC, MEU, AU, through which the New World Order rules. Although they are ten, yet they are not to continue to be that number constantly to the end, but to remain no more than four principal kingdoms.
The ten together with the image of the New World Order spoken of in Rev_13:11-18, that is the Bilderberg Club, all form eleven players.
And the ten horns are ten sovereigns from this reign. They shall rise, and another shall rise after them, and it is different from the first ones, and it humbles three kings, speaks words against the Most High, and it wears out the set-apart ones, and intends to change appointed times and law, and they are given into his hand for a time and times and half a time. Dan_7:24-25
The interpretation: three of the ten members are humbled by the world governance. The New World Order now regroups the unions within itself because some of them could not serve the purpose of the NWO any more. Three unions cease to exist as separate entities and merge into the other unions: MEU and CCASG join one way or the other the E.U. thus forming UfM in the European Group of the Trilateral Commission, and Australia and New Zealand, from loosely created ANZUS, cling to the Asia Pacific Group of the same.
In that kingdom shall arise eight kings, whose times shall be easy, and their years swift and two of them shall perish. When the middle time begins to approach: four kings shall be kept until their end begins to approach: but two shall be kept unto the end. (2Es_12:11-30)
The interpretation: after three members of the NWO have been absorbed into the larger structures, seven kings are left and together with the government in shadow, the Bilderberg Club which is the eighth, will be the backbone of the world empire. And the seven kings are: UfM, NAU, ASEAN+3, EurASEC, UNASUR, SAARC, and AU. Two of them cease to exist (UNASUR, AU) and India from SAARC for one reason or the other join the Asia Pacific Group of the Trilateral Commission, thus four kings remain at the mid-time of the world empire: UfM, NAU, ASEAN+3, and EurASEC; these are the three parties of the Trilateral Commission plus Russia.
In the last days of the kingdom the most High shall raise up three kingdoms, and shall subdue many others to them, and they shall have the dominion of the earth with much oppression, above all those that were before them: for these are that shall accomplish his wickedness, and that shall finish its last end. (2Es_12:11-30)
The interpretation: the inherent antagonism and distrust between Russia (Eurasia) and the countries of the Trilateral Commission (UfM, ASEAN+3, NAU) may lead to a possible war between Russia and U.S.A. and as a result of it NAU ceases to exist (see Appendix B).
Thus, three great kings remain in order to have dominion over the world in the last days: UfM, ASEAN+3, and Eurasia, or Europe, China, and Russia.
One of the kings shall die upon his bed, with pain. And the two that remain shall be slain with the sword. For the sword of the one shall devour the other: but at the last shall he fall through the sword himself. These [two] are they, whom the Highest has kept unto their end: this is the small kingdom and full of trouble. (2Es_12:20-30)
The interpretation: the greater of them (Europe) ceases to exist. Greater does not necessarily means bigger but one of influence and political power and let us not forget that Europe is called “the good old Europe.” The aging Europe is dying demographically as the refuge influx “kills” from within “the old lady.” The time will come when Europe as we knew it will become an irrelevant political entity no longer serving the will of the New World Order, the beast, because it will not be capable of serving whatever. Europe will die upon its bed with pain as an old lady dies.
This leaves Russia and China in the last days. China does not have interests any longer represented in the Trilateral Commission, or what is left from it, and seeks its own interest, and goes against Russia, which will lead to the Armageddon War when a 200 million army will advance towards the west.
