RECAP: On 22 February I began Bible Update: Daniel 7 vision of bear eating 3 ribs – Veronika West’s vision of Russia-Ukraine as follows:
‘As soon as I saw the following image it reminded me of part of the mind-blowing vision of four beasts and ‘one like a Son of Man coming with the clouds of heaven’ that Old Testament prophet Daniel was given about 2,670 years ago, as recounted in chapter 7 of his book:
Ukraine and two areas claiming independence and Russia’s support look like three ribs, the largest as though being a chunk of meat. Read Daniel’s vision in full here, noting:
5 And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’
This is usually regarded by scholars as relating to the ancient Medo-Persian empire but in view of the plainly eschatalogical interpretation Daniel was given, the direct reference Jesus Christ made to his writings, plus their later connection to the Revelation that God gave to Him and shared with His Apostle John, it is not wholly without merit to consider this beast’s imagery as relating to modern Russia – also symbolically known as a bear.’
A FIRST WITNESS
Next therein, I republished Veronika West’s word of 24 January The Bear Nation Arises With A Hunger For War! This includes an opening line “But listen, for The Lion of Judah will roar as the Great Eagles soar!” This seems like the British lion and America’s bald eagle, but the spiritual allusion makes it quite clear this is not our two nations.
On 3rd March she published Three Times the Bear Shall Bite in which begins, ‘Listen! For at the sound of the roar of The Lion. Nations shall be shaken and boundary lines shall be shifted, as battle-lines are being drawn. And then they will say, “Look! Look to the Nation of Germany!” For out of the dark cave of isolation and shame, it shall suddenly emerge from the shadows for greater political power and monetary gain.
Veronika then refers to Germany as a Leopard that “doesn’t change its spots” and then to a Red Dragon.
BUT, in checking Daniel 7 I was struck by the fact these four symbolical characters appear simultaneously! Verse 3 states, ‘And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.’ Note well; they appeared at the same time! Also, there’s nothing in the explanation-interpretation Daniel was given (verse 15 onwards) explicitly stating that those empires will be consecutive – it’s simply assumed!
[Scholars and theologians consider those four beasts of winged lion, lolling bear, four-headed and winged leopard plus a terrifying and unnatural griffin-like beast, out of which grows the infamous ‘little horn,’ represent four historical, consecutive empires that were to invade the Middle-East: viz, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome.]
In the second word Veronika relates ‘…And many will say, “See! A Leopard doesn’t change its spots.” For surely what will begin to unfold is a type and a shadow of Adolf Hitler’s demonic stronghold.”
NOW, that distinctly implies and refers to the re-emergence of the Nazi regime or ‘Third Reich’ (that is empire) as Fourth Reich – that is, a 4-headed leopard as in Daniel 7!!
AND, this connects into what’s known as ‘Prussia-Gate’ – with direct connection to Klaus Schwab, founder of the Word Economic Forum, as mentioned in Leo Hohmann’s recent posts. (I’ll leave you to do your own research on that deep-state topic.)
Veronika’s two visions of ‘titans’ have a roaring lion (of Judah? Not UK’s lion and wings of US eagle), a leopard, a bear and a dragon.
Therefore, I believe we need to be open to the possibility of Daniel’s vision being not of over two millennia ago, but about our present times and situation in Eastern Europe.
On page 658 of Unlocking The Bible (2003) esteemed teacher J. David Pawson (with Andy Peck) asks,
‘So, what do we make of these beasts …followed by a kingdom?…
The Second Coming of Jesus is clearly in view here. My speculation is that the lion with wings is the USA and UK, the bear is Russia and the leopard is the Arabic world. So they will still be around right at the end, but they will be replaced by the kingdom of God, but I could not be dogmatic about this identification.’
A SECOND WITNESS
As the above musings were already in my mind I was pleased to read this by Simon Copley, posted last Friday on Prophetic Releasers for UK Community page (Fbk). He too notes the lack of sequencing in Daniel’s vision and kindly permits republication – I trust this will read well in view of Fbk’s hidden formatting:
‘In Daniel Chapter 7, the prophet has a vision of four beasts.
Simon later adds:
