Eh, it's a nice try, but a bit too stereotypical for my likings.
Probability is that in the end times, America won't even exist anymore.
It's harsh, but there is simply no mention of a nation far away with such power as we enjoy.
I'll give you my understanding of it as I've come to learn from others (I'll happily link you to them if you so desire).
One of the keys to understanding that great end war is that famous number 666. We really don't know for sure what to think of it, but recently and
interesting rumor passed by my ears and I decided to investigate, and lo it did turn up some fruit, though I heed caution to you and all for it can
easily be used to justify hatred when you ought not to.
The rumor I heard was that, in the Codex Vaticanis, one of the oldest versions of Revelations, the number 666 was written most interestingly.
See it's not actually 666. It's 600 60 6. Which changes some things, as you may see.
What's more interesting, is what the characters look like:
Take note on line 14:1. It's the x, with two other characters with a line over them.
Looks like your regular greek. But wait, there's more.
Do you see any similarities between that and the inside of the Hagia Sophia?
How about the Flag of Iran? You can search for yourself.
Discern as you wish.
But before you go and start hating Muslims as the religion of the antichrist, let me show you yet another thing.
Guess what. Phrases like "Kill Allah Now" and other atheistic phrases look similar too.
So we're looking at a possible Atheist movement in the middle east, just as much as a possible religious movement.
Now as for that war, Daniel puts it pretty straight.
After speaking about all the beasts, which all are the Empires that came and went, he mentions the Iron Empire, Rome, not ending, but simply
reorganizing over and over and over again.
In revelations, we see this Iron beast again.
Only this time, it has all the members of the beasts Daniel saw........A World Union....
Lion's mouth means it's bite is in Babylon.
Bear's feet means it's attack is in Persia.
Leopard's body means it will be alive through Greece. (this is interesting because it makes it seem likely to be an atheist movement in the middle
**The nations and their animals are the traditional views. I can expand on why if you'd like.**
Thing is, it could be that the dragon is a coalition of nations giving power to the beasts. And thus something totally external....Just a thought.
Well that's all for now. I don't know everything and I'm still thinking up some thoughts. Ask me for more and please give me your opinion that I
may observe my own through another.
