Well, I think you are on to something here.
As to it being "fulfilled prophecy", it states that it is for the end, so no problems there.
When you look at Daniel 7, there are 4 Satanic empires in succession:
the lion with eagle wings, the bear, the 4 headed leopard, and then the 4th terrible beast with 10 horns. In modern terms: UK controlling the US
(that's what it says), then Russia plucks the wings off the lion (Russia defeats the US), then the 4 headed EU, then the 4th terrible beast with iron
teeth with 10 horns ruled by the little horn/ 11th horn.
So, in Daniel 8, you've got 4 EU leaders, one of whom is going to be the leader of the 4th terrible beast.
The carcass would indeed translate as the Ram/ Russia and Iran. I think of Revelation as 4 cycles:
Seals 1-7, then Woe 1/ Trumpet 5; then Woe 2/ Trumpet 6; then Woe 3/ Trumpet 7.
1] Lion w/ wings is now,
2] the bear/ Russia/ Gog rules in the Trumpet 5 cycle which is characterized by martyrdom and suffering,
3] then the 6th Trumpet cycle with the start of the 3rd Temple (Revelation chptr 10,11), and the witnessing of the 2 witnesses
4] then the 7th Trumpet/ 7 bowls, wrath of God cycle aka the "Millenium" (not really 1000 years, just when Jesus Christ is among us as per 2 Peter
The Psalm 83 war would start late October of this year, bringing Gog to power 11-16-13, 5 months before Passover 4-15-14, to end the Ram/ bear/ /
Russia Gog's reign with the 1st Armageddon war that brings the EU 4 to power. The 2nd Gog war is at the end of the 7th Trumpet timeframe.
When Daniel 8 talks about the sanctuary being cleansed at the end of 2300 days, this is a reference to the 3rd temple that is started at the end of
5th Trumpet/ death of the Ram/ carcass and start of the 6th Trumpet timeframe.
Hmm. Lot to think about here.
