The days come, and this kingdom [Babylon] will be destroyed which once destroyed Zion, and it will be subjected to that which comes after it. Moreover, that also again after a time will be destroyed, and another, a third, will arise, and that also will have dominion for its time, and will be destroyed.

Three more sovereigns are to arise in Persia, and the fourth is to become far richer than them all. And by his power, through his riches, he stirs up all against the rulership of Greece. And a mighty king shall arise from Greece, and he shall rule with great authority, but his rule shall be broken up and divided into four kingdoms, but not among his descendants nor according to his authority. Dan_11:2-4 And when he was broken, four stood up in his place arising out of his nation, but not with his power. And in the latter time of their rule, a king, fierce of face and skilled at intrigues, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty and destroy many and the set-apart people. And he will hold himself to be great and stand against the Prince of princes – yet without hand he shall be broken. Dan_8:20-25

The kingdom which was seen in the vision of thy brother Daniel. There shall rise up a kingdom upon earth, and it shall be feared above all the kingdoms that were before it. In the same shall twelve kings reign, one after another: the second shall begin to reign, and shall have more time than any of the twelve. 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 its beginning.

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 after this, a fourth kingdom will arise, whose power will be harsh and evil far beyond those which were before it, and it will rule many times and it will hold fast for times, and will exalt itself. [But the king of Babylon will arise who has now destroyed Zion, and he will boast over the people, and he will speak great things in his heart in the presence of the Most High. But he also shall fall at last. 2Baruch 67]

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 [the eleventh] shall rise after them, and he is different from the first ten. And he humbles three kings [eight left], 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_7:23-25

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.

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

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 given by Satan*. One of the kings has been slain to death, but his deadly wound was healed. And all the earth marveled after the king. And he was given authority to speak blasphemies and over every nation for forty-two months.

[Into twelve parts is the time divided. In the first part there shall be the beginning of commotions. And in the second part: slayings of the great ones. And in the third part the fall of many by death. And in the fourth part the sending of the sword. And in the fifth part famine and the withholding of rain. And in the sixth part earthquakes and terrors. [Wanting.] And in the eighth part a multitude of ghosts and attacks of the Shedim. And in the ninth part the fall of fire. And in the tenth part plunder and much oppression (gone already). And in the eleventh part wickedness. And in the twelfth part confusion from the mingling together of all those things aforesaid so that those who are upon the earth in those days may not understand that this is the consummation of the times. 2Baruch 27.]

For the world is divided into twelve parts, and the ten parts of it are gone already, and half of a tenth part: And there remained that which is after the half of the tenth part. (2Es_14:11-12)

[But whoever understands shall then be wise. For the measure and reckoning of that time are two parts (of) a week of seven weeks. And it shall come to pass when all is accomplished that the Messiah shall then begin to be revealed. And Behemoth shall be revealed from his place and Leviathan shall ascend from the sea, those two great monsters which I shall have kept until that time. 2Baruch 28-29]

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. 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 12:11-30)

And another king is coming up out of the earth, and he has two kingdoms. And he exercises all the authority of the first king in his presence, and causes the earth to worship the first king, who was deadly wounded but healed. And he does great signs, … And he leads astray those dwelling on the earth because of those signs, saying to those dwelling on the earth to make an image to the first king. And there was given to him to give spirit to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause to be killed as many as would not worship the image of the beast. And he causes all, both small and great, and rich and poor, and free and slave, to be given a mark upon their right hand or upon their foreheads, and that no one should be able to buy or sell except he that has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is the wisdom! He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666. (Rev_13:15-18)

And it will come to pass when the dominion of My Messiah will be revealed; it will root out the multitude of its armies. The last leader of that time will be left alive, and he will be bound, and they will take him up to Mount Zion, and My Messiah will convict him. And he will put him to death and protect the rest of my people who will be found in the place that I have chosen. 2Baruch 39 & 40

But the Judgment shall come and shall take him away to cut off and to destroy, until the end. And the kingdom, and the rulership, and the greatness under all the heavens, shall be given to the set-apart ones of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all rulerships shall serve and obey Him.Dan_7:26-27

The Messiah shall reprove them and shall upbraid them with their cruelty. He shall set them before him in judgment, shall rebuke them, and correct them. For the rest of my people he shall deliver with mercy, those that have been preserved within my borders, and he shall make them joyful until the coming of the Day of Judgment. 2Es_12:11-34

And the kings of the earth gathered together to fight the Messiah. And the two remaining kings were seized and thrown alive into the lake of fire burning with sulphur. And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him. Rev_19:19-21

*Satan has seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns on his heads (Rev_12:3) but gave him three more.
