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 mystery 

A Great City 

A whore hated by the beast with ten horns.  Constantinople can be found no more at all.  It is a mystery and likely to remain so.  It is the only city to satisfy all the characteristics of Babylon the Great: seven hills, many waters, merchants, and is fallen, is fallen.  Constantinople is Babylon the Great.

a number 

A Reliable Word 

A consistent interpretation.  Numbers are one of the few things all 60 English versions of the bible agree on.  They all agree on “a thousand years”, 666, “ten horns”, and “seven heads” .  Can we find historical events that have all these numbers in a meaningful way?  Start with the biggest number.  A thousand years.

a governor 

A High Priest 

A candlestick and olive tree.  Two witnesses.  A search for two olive trees leads to Zechariah 4:3 and that leads to Zerubbabel a governor who is always associated with Joshua a high priest.  Church and state. History has two Christian empires; the Byzantine Empire and the Holy Roman Empire. Both were defeated by the horns of the second beast. The Byzantines actually used Greek Fire coming out of the mouths of animal figures mounted on the boats to defeat the Muslim attackers.

a beast 

A Him Or An It 

A translation problem.  Can you find the beast if you are looking for a “him” instead of an “it”? In Revelation 13:1; 20 have “his horns”, 20 have “its horns”, 15 have “It had ten horns” .  We need Daniel 7:7 to clear this up.  “it had ten horns” is a clear winner.  You need to look for an “it” and not a “him” to find the beast.  It makes a difference.
