WE REVISIT the Book of Daniel as we discuss the ten horns of the Beast from the sea, John’s description of the Antichrist in Revelation 13 and 17.
The four beasts of Daniel’s vision (Dan. 7:1–8) match exactly the bizarre creature described by John. It’s generally agreed that the beasts have a historic fulfillment in Babylon (the lion), the Medo-Persian empire (the bear), Greece (the winged leopard), and Rome (the terrifying fourth beast).
Given the current tensions in Eastern Europe between the US and NATO on one side and Russia on the other, we discuss whether we can read any prophetic significance into the prophecies of Daniel, Ezekiel and John. Does the bear of Daniel’s vision refer to Russia? Did Ezekiel’s prophecy of an enemy from the land of Magog foretell an invasion of Israel led by Russia?
We explain why we don’t believe Russia is in view in either prophecy, except insofar as Russia, along with the rest of the world, will come against Israel in the war that leads up to Armageddon.
