This rendering is part of a collection of illustrations I did for a professor who taught a course on the books of Daniel \ Revelation. He used these illustrations in his teaching materials. The course takes a look at the prophetic events of four different monarchies that will rise to rule over the civilized world, then fall.
Three of these monarchies have already come and gone through out history, the fourth is going to rise and rule over the world during the end times.
The Fourth Beast
Daniel chapter 7: 7 – 8
” After this I kept looking in the night visions, 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 it ’s feet
it was different from all the beast that were before it, and it had ten horns.
( 8 ) ” While i was contemplating the horns, another horn, a little one, came
up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the root
before it
and behold, this horn possessed eyes like a man, and the mouth
uttering great boast.
The vision interpreted
Daniel chapter 7 : 15 – 27
( 15 ) ” As for me , Daniel , my spirit was distressed within me , and the
vision in my mind kept alarming me .
( 16 ) ” I approached one of those who were standing by and began asking
him the exact meaning of all this. So he told me and made known to me the
interpretation of these things:
( 17 ) ’ These great beast, which are four in number, are four kings who will
arise from the earth.
( 18 ) ’ But the saints of the Highest One will receive the kingdom and
possess the kingdom fore ever, for all ages to come.’
( 19 ) ” Then I desired to know the exact meaning of the fourth beast,
which was different from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, with it’s teeth of
iron and it’s claws of bronze, and which devoured, crushed, and trampled
down the remainder with it’s feet,
( 20 ) and the meaning of the ten horns that were on it’s head and the other
horn which came up, and before which three of them fell, namely, that horn
which had eyes and a mouth uttering great boasts, and which was larger in
appearance than it’s associates.
( 21 ) ” I kept looking , and that horn was waging war with the saints and
overpowering them.
( 22 ) until the ancient of days came, and judgment was passed in favor of
the saints of the Highest One , and the time arrives when the saints took
possession of the kingdom.
( 23 ) ” Thus he said: ” the fourth beast will be a fourth kingdom on the earth,
which will be different from all the other kingdoms, and it will devour the
whole earth and tread it down and crush it.
( 24 ) ’ As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise
another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous
ones and will subdue three kings.
( 25 ) ’ And he will speak out against the Most High and wear down the
saints of the Most High one, and he will intend to make alterations in times
and in law
and they will be given into his hand for a time, time,and half a
( 26 ) ’ But the court will sit for judgment, and his domination will be taken
away , annihilated and destroyed forever.
( 27 ) ’ Then the sovereignty, the dominion, and the greatness of all the
kingdoms under the whole heaven will be given to the people of the saints of
the Most High One
His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all the
dominion will serve and obey Him.’
