The Fourth Beast and Its Ten Horns

Chapter 2

This section on the identity of the beasts of Daniel was first written in the spring of 1991 when the Lord did show me these things for His purpose. I have added to it as the Lord revealed.

In Daniel chapter 7, verses 2 - 8:
The 1st beast is a lion; Babylon
The 2nd beast is a bear; Media-Persia
The 3rd beast is a leopard; Greece
The 4th beast is what is known as the Empire of the last days

Daniel Ch. 7, Vs. 7: 
After this I kept looking in the night vision, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong: and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed, and trampled down the remainder with its feet: and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.
Notice, that the beast devoured and crushed and trampled the other empires before the eleventh horn came up.  To devour the other beasts is interesting because it  means it swallowed the other kingdoms. If we look at history we know that Babylon was devoured by Media-Persia making the Media-Persian Empire even larger. Then the Grecian Empire grew larger when it devoured Media Persia and, of course, the last beast devours them all. I can't help but picture the illustration of the little fish when a bigger fish swallows it and then an even bigger fish swallows that fish, and so on. What this means is that the final Beast contains all of the lands of the other empires that came before it.  Lands that we call the Middle East.
This last days beast will come up in the lands of the Middle East.


Daniel 7, Vs. 8 
While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth uttering great boasts.
This "little horn" actually represents a new kingdom that takes over three of the former kingdoms becoming one bigger kingdom in there place.
The angel gives Daniel an interpretation:

Daniel 7, Vs.24 
as for the ten horns, out of THIS kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings.
Ten horns/kingdoms are within this beast then an eleventh kingdom arises pulling out three former kingdoms
We learn more about these Ten Horns in the Book of Revelation
THE Ten Horns

Rev. 17, verse 12-17
and the ten horns that you saw are ten kings, who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. These have one purpose and they give their power and authority to the beast. 
"These will wage war against the lamb, (Jesus) and the Lamb will overcome them. and the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the Harlot (on the water, Israel) and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire. For God has put in their hearts to execute his purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God should be fulfilled.

So the binding of these nations together comes out of hatred for the Holy Covenant.
When we look only at the verses in Revelation we don't get the full picture. We have to understand the visions of  Daniel to know who the ten horns are.

Dan. 7:24:
as for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings.

The Ram and goat vision gives us insight into what a horn is in God's symbolism. On the goat the four horns that came up were not only kings but were also four kingdoms within the Grecian empire. All four were still called the Grecian Empire. So horns are kingdoms within an empire.

The fourth beast in Daniel is an empire, and out of this empire ten kings/nations will arise. So just like the example of the Grecian empire in the Ram and goat vision, this last empire will be split up into ten nations. When an eleventh king/nation comes into being three of the nations will be uprooted and replaced by it.

The Book of Revelation explains this

Rev. 17; 12:
and the ten horns that you saw are ten kings, who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour.

Ten Islamic Nations in the Midlle East

The Islamic Empire (4th beast)  devoured the same lands and people as the first three beasts had ruled over, Babylon, Media-Persia, and Grecian empires.

As we see in Revelation 13 the first beast's last head (empire of the fourth beast), 7th head with ten horns, had died by war/sword, but came back to life. That means the empire died and came back to life as a revived empire made up of the lands of the ten original nations.  All ten horns/kings must give their authority to the beast of Islam/Allah. They do this through the Jihad. A Holy war that units their hatred of the people of "The Book" both Jews and Christians, which means they hate both Israel and the USA and all other nations that are known as Christian countries to them. One of the leading groups today is the Al-Qaida.

The 4th beast is the Islamic Empire and in it are the ten countries/nations of peoples, that in 1922 had their new borders drawn up by Britain when the Ottoman/Islamic empire died at the end of World War I.

The 10 nations would be within the area of when the 7th head/4th beast ruled over the lands of the Middle east. Ten provinces within the Islamic Empire. Ten Provinces that became kingdoms, each with its own king when the empire fell (one of the heads was slain as if by war and yet lives). The Middle east nations are united in their religion and there goals right now but won't be an “Empire” again until the Ten give their power to the beast out of the bottomless pit.  So if we look on a map of the last head on the beast with its ten horns (Islamic Empire) we can see the ten nations of the Middle East today. Places such as Turkey, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Ethiopia, Libya.

These nations can be found listed in one prophecy or another as being involved in the war against Israel in the end days. They are the most likely candidates for the 10 horns of the last days beast (8th head).

 The little horn that comes up among the 10 is an 11th horn, or king. I believe this is a new Caliphate established in the Middle East. When it/he comes up he subdues three of the ten. These may be the three of the ten that have the most pull concerning Israel at this time. Egypt and Jordan have peace agreements with Israel and the other one with the most pull is Saudi Arabia. These countries/kings would have to submit to his power/rule. It seems the government of Egypt will be taken down by war (Eze 38). Jordan avoids being over run by his armies (Daniel 11:40-44) so probably submits without a fight, as does Saudi Arabia, although the Saudis do question why the 11th horn king is attacking Israel at this time (Eze 38).

I believe this 11th king (Caliph) will do much the same as Saladin did. First he, or those countries that adhere to his power, will enter any Middle East countries that are resisting the Caliphate, subdue them, and then employ the people of that nation into his army. Once he is fully established He will then enter the beautiful land (Israel) (Dan 11:44). Personally I believe this Caliphate will be set up in Iraq. After the US pulls out the government of Iraq will be taken over by an Islamic extremist group.

But it will be the eleventh horn that will rise up and lead radical Islamists, and all Islam by proxy, in the name of Allah, in an attack on Israel in the last days. Once we leave Iraq then Iraq will be open for the taking by the so called insurgents, which are for the most part Al-Qaida.
Then Jesus will return and fight for "the inhabitants of Jerusalem" (Zech 12:8)

This all seems very plausible but there is a second thought on who the 10 are.

The Ottoman Empire had ten provinces within it that were on the map that the British used to draw new borders for a new Middle East
This is a copy of the map drawn by a British civil servant in 1922. (I added the numbers to show the 10 provinces.)


"In the peace settlement that followed the First World War, the Allies divided the Arab provinces of the Ottoman Empire, and Britain was allocated mandatory power over the territory of Iraq under the authority of the League of Nations. Modern Iraq had never existed in its current form and the mandate of Iraq was cobbled together from the Ottoman provinces of Basrah, Baghdad and Mosul.
In 1921 Britain imported a king, Faisal, to be the king over this new kingdom."*1

Ten Horns
1. Turkey
2. Syria
3. Lebanon
4. Egypt
5. Jordan
6. Arabia
7. Persia (Iran)
8. Mosul*
9. Basrah*
10. Baghdad*

The last 3 countries were not given kingdoms. They were uprooted and a whole new country came into being called Iraq, the eleventh horn?
The three ethnic groupsare now under one rule, and they are called Iraqis.

When the Islamic/Ottoman Empire fell Britain, France, Italy, and Russia all took different parts of it, then the USA entered in and using the League of Nations put a stop to the monopolizing of the oil rich lands and caused the boundaries of the Middle East to be drawn up by Britain.

"Lloyd George, the British negotiator and designer of the Middle East partition that President Wilson found so offensive, was able to thwart Wilson's every move to grant those territories independence"*1

In 1922 Britain, under mandates, made each country a separate kingdom and appointed kings for sone of them. But did they make a decision that is the fulfillment of prophecy that says when the eleventh horn comes up three of the horns are uprooted, when creating the new kingdom ofIraq?
