The US is transitioning from freedom to mandates. The Bible depicts govern-ments as fierce beasts of prey in Daniel 7 when four beasts “shall arise” in end-times. They include a lion with eagles wings (UK/US alliance), a bear (Russia), a 4-headed leopard (China, Japan, Korea & ?) and dreadful beast with 10 horns, the EU with the papacy as the little horn that becomes great, Daniel 7:21-25. Vatican strategy is to get everyone else to fight it out and be there at the end as the little horn in Daniel 8 (the same little horn in Daniel 7) ? “exceeding great.” But that transition of Daniel 8:8 is after the US military does its thing to make the US great and the great horn breaks. Some readers will notice the great horn description in Daniel 8:21 fits Alexander the Great who conquered the Medes and Persians, but ‘history repeats’ with imagery also fitting our ‘time of the end.’
