A Beast of Daniel 

A connection with the Apocalypse.  John knows Daniel.  Both have a beast with “ten horns” which should fit with history in the same way.  This requires a close look at the King of the North and the King of the South.  The fourth beast of Daniel was diverse from all the beasts and must show up somewhere in history.

a fourth beast of Daniel 

A Great Sword 
A rider of the red horse with power to take peace from the earth.  He was also given the key of the bottomless pit  –  Sebeos may have been the first to see Islam as the true fourth beast of Daniel.  Others like Tom Holland “In The Shadow of The Sword” would recognize this.  There is something about the Temple that makes a beast a beast.

a he or an it 

A Translation Issue 
A beast. Your bible could have as many as 296 beasts or as few as 87. There are 20 translations that consider the beast in Revelation 13:1 a ‘he’ and 37 translations call it an ‘it’. This is a significant difference. Daniel 7:7 can help us here. The fourth beast is an it in all 52 translations. It has ten horns just like the beast in Revelation. If your translation has a he for a beast, you are being misled.
