When God picked symbols to represent nations, he didn’t pick them ar-
bitrarily, nor did he choose symbols having no significance. rather, he chose
symbols that would be meaningful to the people who would live at the time of the
prophecy’s fulfillment. let’s examine the description of each symbol carefully.
“The first was like a lion, and had
eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings
thereof were plucked, and it was
lifted up from the earth, and made
stand upon the feet as a man, and a
man’s heart was given to it.”
Great britain’s official animal
symbol is the lion. in Webster’s Third
New International Dictionary under
“lion”, it states that the lion is the symbol of a country, Great britain. on trafal-
gar square at the center of london, four huge lions look toward the north, the
south, the east and the west. it is common to see britain referred to as the lion in
news articles and in political cartoons.
“And behold another beast, a second,
like to a bear, and it raised up itself
on one side, and it had three ribs in
the mouth of it between the teeth of
it: and they said thus unto it, Arise,
devour much flesh”.
it is common knowledge that the
symbol of russia is the bear. on the
covers of Time Magazine on october
27, 1980 and on May 21, 1984, a picture of a bear was used to represent the na-
tion of russia. on the July 4-10, 2009 edition of the Economist Magazine, a bear
was used on the front cover to symbolize russia. this prophecy, written 2,500
years ago, is unerringly being fulfilled now!
an article appearing in the Indianapolis Star on January 4, 1980, was entitled,
“after the british lion, the russian bear.” it is absolutely amazing to see sym-
bols, chosen by God 2,500 years ago to represent nations that would be on earth
at the time of his second coming, being used by major secular news media to
symbolize those nations today!
let’s take one more look at the de-
scription of the lion in daniel 7:4,
“The first was like a lion, and had
eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings
thereof were plucked, and it was
lifted up from the earth, and made
stand upon the feet as a man, and a
man’s heart was given to it.”
not only is there a major nation on
earth today whose recognized symbol
is the lion, but there is also a major nation whose symbol is the eagle. all of us
are very familiar with the bald eagle as the national symbol of the United states of

In the previous article, we have seen that the united states was supernaturally
foretold in the scriptures by God. But is there any indication in the prophecies as
to what the future holds for America?
he symbols used to depict modern nations in Daniel 7 are used one other time in
scripture. But they are used in a different way. In Daniel 7, the four beasts depict
four individual nations. In Revelation 13, the Apostle John saw a vision of one
beast instead of four. The one beast was described as having the body of the leopard, the feet
of the bear, the mouth of the lion, and the ten horns of the ten-horned beast. This conglom-
erate beast of Revelation 13 is depicting the endtime world government of the Antichrist.
All of the beasts in Daniel 7 have now merged into this one unified beast…except for one.
The eagle’s wings are not mentioned in the description of the world government beast!
