The kingdom of Lysimachus (circa 361–281 BC), included Lydia, Ionia, Phrygia, and other parts of present-day Turkey. As a result, American Christian missionaries went to “India, Burma, and Hawaii, then eventually by 1900 to the Middle East, Africa, and to China, Japan, and Korea in the Far East”. The Greek Middle Ages are coterminous with the duration of the Byzantine Empire (330–1453).

The old ways of the gods must be restored, he was convinced, if human beings are to be preserved from the corruptions which they have brought upon themselves.” He summarizes by stating that “For more than three thousand years, secret societies have labored to create the background of knowledge necessary to the establishment of an enlightened democracy among the nations of the world.”.

The angel, Gabriel revealed to Daniel that the third kingdom (Daniel 2:39, 7:6) is Greece (Daniel 8:21). Many of the American colleges were founded by Christians. They, and others like them, have had a profound influence that continues through today. (Daniel 7:24). Alexander the Great, quickly and powerfully conquered the Persians in a brilliant series of battles, and Greece became the masters of the Oriental World. The first three kingdoms and the first phase of the fourth kingdom are all past. "The metals of declining value represent four kingdoms, easily identified as Babylon (Nebuchadnezzar), Media (Darius the Mede), Persia (Cyrus of Persia), and Greece (the 'prince of Greece' in 10:20)." Daniel tells us that ten kings, or kingdoms, shall come “out of this kingdom”. During the Bronze Age a number of entities were formed in Mycenean Greece (1600-1100 BC), each of them was ruled by a Wanax, the most important were: As mentioned earlier, Daniel 8:8 states that the Greek empire was divided into four kingdoms, but historians conclude anywhere from three to five.

This brought in the time of the prophesy to be ready for the birth of Christ, and His crucifixion (cutting off) in that 490 year time given to Daniel. No army from without was able to conquer Rome until it had been weakened from within.

H. H. Rowley has done a very thorough study of the history ofinterpretation of this passage. It was a period of political, philosophical, artistic, and scientific achievements that formed a legacy with unparalleled influence on Western civilization. Consider these prophecies from Daniel: I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. So brilliant was the plan and so well was it administrated that it has survived to our time, and it will continue to function until the great work is accomplished.” He continues: “Plato’s political vision was for the restoration of the Empire of the Golden Age.

This tells us that the first kingdom was replaced by 4 kingdoms, so this indicates that when horns come up after other horns, the second set of horns represents kingdoms that occur after the kingdom represented by the first set of horns. Daniel explained to the king that the four metals represented four successive kingdoms that would rule on the earth. In light of the work of the plan of the secret societies over the centuries to re-establish a new “Golden Age”, it is interesting to note that in the 1700s England, Spain, and France all simultaneously controlled portions of the land that would become the United States of America. It will continue this trend and intensify until Antichrist potentially rules over the entire world. Revelation 16:10 speaks of the beast and his kingdom. Representatives of the cities of Greece also came, garlanded as befitted Alexander's divine status. Hope of the Wicked, p 10. ), we find that Babylon is viewed as a Mountain-Kingdom, Greece has split into 4 Head-Kingdoms, Rome has ten kings coming out of a Head-Kingdom, and the whole lineup is followed by … A third kingdom of "bronze" is represented by the waist and thighs. So, the eleventh horn is Antichrist. Bacon’s vision of a “New Order of the Ages” is being fulfilled in the “New World Order” that President George H. W. Bush and many other world leaders have talked about. Some believe that those with an ungodly purpose can be traced back to the stories that the Greek philosopher Plato told from the Egyptians about Atlantis. But finally In 1204, after a civil struggle as to succession of throne among the members of ruling Angelid(Angeloi), the Fourth Crusade conquered the capital, Constantinople, and fell the Empire to partitions and crises from which it never recovered. (. While there are differences in the ten divisions, all three agree upon the peoples who are in the countries of Great Britain (Saxons and Britons), Spain (Suevians, Vandals, and Alans), and France (Visigoths).

Based on the road systems of the day, Israel is geographically just south of the northern kingdom, and occupies the top most portion of the southern kingdom. The western empire ended in 476 AD when the Germanic mercenary Odoacer seized power. The Roman Empire flourished and came to the height of its power around 150 AD. Historians don’t agree on the number of kingdoms the Roman empire was divided into, and which nations. The first three kingdoms of Babylon, Medo-Persia, and Greece followed each other, with each successive kingdom conquering the previous one. century B.C. Based on maps, it is interesting to note that at one time or another, almost all the countries of the world have come under the control of France, Spain, and England. God revealed to Daniel that the first kingdom (Daniel 7:4) is Babylon which starts under King Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 2:38). 3And there came up four great beasts out of the sea, differing from one another. Much like the parable of the wheat and tares that Jesus spoke of in Matthew 13, there are those who sowed Godly seeds and others who sowed ungodly seeds into the establishment of the United States. The Ottoman Empire fell in the early 20th century. It is diverse from the three previous beasts which were the kingdoms of Babylon, Medo Persia, and Greece. Beginning the early parts of the 4th century, the emperors at Rome were already aware of the increasing weakness of the Western Roman Empire. What were the philosophical ideas that came out of ancient Greece? Daniel 7:3 “And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.” Christianity is the official religion of this new Empire, spread to the region by the Greek language, the language in which the first gospels were written. This was first brought to my attention in the article “The Hidden Treasures” by Doug Krieger which no longer appears to be available on the internet. The progression lays out the lineage of kings of Greece. Thus, out of the Roman empire will come ten kings and kingdoms, and out of them will come the eleventh king (Antichrist) and his kingdom. (Daniel 7:20). The first was given to Seleucus (Asia), the second to Ptolemy (Egypt), the third to Lysimachus (Thrace), and the fourth to Antipater’s son Cassander (Macedonia, including Greece). When we look at the four kingdoms of Daniel 7 (with a total of 7 Heads- count them! The prophet Daniel records several visions describing four beasts or kingdoms that would rise to power. Ancient Greece was conquered piecemeal by the Roman republic in the last two centuries BC, with Macedonia arguably being the last major power to be defeated. It should be noted that Israel is under Ptolemy’s jurisdiction in the south. After a series of battles, Alexander the Great defeated the Persian armies, thus fulfilling the prophecy given to Daniel. There was much conflict between these four generals, especially between Seleucus in Asia (includes modern day Syria, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan) and Ptolemy in Egypt. Jay Morningstar comments: “‘The New Atlantis’ was Bacons’ vision for a new ‘Golden Age’, and it became the inspiration for many influential American colonists, including several of Bacons’ decendants, who settled in Virginia after it’s publication. Daniel 7:17 “ Those great beasts, which are four, are four kings which arise out of the earth.” This tells us that a ‘beast‘ in prophecy is a great kingdom, which is the same message of Daniel 2, about four pagan kingdoms. Mostly only Russia, China, and Brazil have not. That horn speaks great things and makes war against the saints. But the Roman Empire was only the start in the life of the fourth beast. The countries that came out of the Roman empire, especially Spain, France, England have a history of colonization and imperialism. At that time about a quarter of the world’s population lived under Roman law. It remains so until the Byzantine empire's final conquest in 1453 by the Ottoman empire. Gabriel Interprets Daniel's Vision … 21 The shaggy goat represents the king of Greece, and the large horn between his eyes is the first king. (Daniel 7:8), And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. These would be the four notable horns mentioned by Daniel. Alexander died in 321 BC, and after his death his empire was divided into four Kingdoms, the most important were Seleucus in Asia, and Ptolemy in Africa. Political rule was therefore divided until the Roman Empire arose to provide a new unifying political factor. These three countries have had a significant influence on world affairs throughout the centuries. Egypt and parts of the Middle East came under the rule of Ptolemy, Seleucus controlled Syria and the remnants of the Persian Empire, while Macedonia, Thrace, and parts of northern Asia Minor came under the hegemony of Antigonus and his son Demetrius. After studying the history that led to the founding of the United States of America it is clear that there was a Godly influence and an ungodly influence. The countries that came out of the Roman empire, especially Spain, France, England have a history of colonization and imperialism. Bacon, who many historians consider to be the true father of modern democracy and founder of America, was an avid student of Ancient Wisdom, joining many secret societies during his life. In his youth, he became a member of ‘The Order of the Helmet’, a group that worshipped the Goddess as Pallas Athene, the Greek Goddess of Truth and Wisdom. It was in the late 1800s that America’s Biblical world view drastically began to change. The kingdom of Cassander (circa 358–297 BC), consisted of Macedonia, most of Greece, and parts of Thrace. The British Empire also began in the 1500s and reached it peak in the early 20th century. 9:24-27) Only in the twentieth century does an independent Greek kingdom rise out of two millennia of Turkic occupation or Romanised empire. It includes empires, countries, states, regions and territories that have or had in the past one of the following characteristics: During the Bronze Age a number of entities were formed in Mycenean Greece (1600-1100 BC), each of them was ruled by a Wanax, the most important were: During the history of Ancient Greece a total of 1,500 to 2,000[1] city-states were established. In the end times, some of these conflicts will involve Antichrist. Massalia (which eventually became the cityof Marseilles) was just such a colony, founded around 600 BCE. This is a list of Greek countries and regions throughout history. (Dan. These three countries have had a significant influence on world affairs throughout the centuries. 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. This is one of the general characteristics of the fourth beast that Daniel mentions in Daniel 7:23.

It has the distinction of being the largest empire in history which is why it is stated that “the sun never set on the English empire”. Bacon himself had given up all hope of bringing his dream to fruition in his own country, and he concentrated his attention upon rooting it in the new world. Greece becomes the central segment of the Eastern Roman empire. 22 The four horns that replaced the broken one represent four kingdoms that will rise from that nation, but will not have the same power. At its peak in the 1700s, it became the largest empire in the world. Similarly, colonialism is defined as “control by one country over another area and its people”. This beast is the antichrist in modern terms. The map below is based on the Greek troop catalogue in book 2 of Homer's Iliad, using the towns and geographical landmarks listed to define the various territories. Early Greek accounts of the Celts were somewhat neutral and curious, and little attention was given to the strange peoples living on the northern extremity of the Greek world. Scripture states that the fourth kingdom was divided into ten kingdoms, and so it must have been, despite what historians say. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, imperialism is defined as “a policy or practice by which a country increases its power by gaining control over other areas of the world”.

The Attalid dynasty (/ˈætəlᵻd/; Greek: Δυναστεία των Ατταλιδών) was a Hellenistic dynasty that ruled the city of Pergamon after the death of Lysimachus, a general of Alexander the Great. The strong influence that the church used to have on every aspect of society is waning and being replaced by a different value system and worship of other gods. The Book of Daniel originated from a collection of legends circulating in the Jewish community in Babylon and Mesopotamia in the Persian and early Hellenistic periods (5th to 3rd centuries BCE), and was later expanded by the visions of chapters 7-12 in the Maccabean era (mid-2nd century). Many factors contributed to the fall of the Roman empire over a long period of time. In the East, Greeks are the predominant national group and their language is the lingua franca of the region. 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.
