The Bible tells of 4 worldwide kingdoms.1 The first was not Mystery Babylon, but Babylon. Mystery Babylon is today’s world government, the New World Order government, which has been given its power from the spirit of Satan (Revelation 13:1-4, 11-15, 16:13-14, 17:1-9). Babylon was the first kingdom and its king was Nebuchadnezzar, who was succeeded by his son Belshazzar (Daniel 2:38).
One night Belshazzar decided to throw a big party. He blasphemously brought in the vessels from the house of GOD, which his father had stolen when he took most of Israel into captivity. Belshazzar poured wine into the vessels of GOD for himself, his princes, his wives, and his concubines. This irritated GOD greatly, so GOD sent a vision of a hand which wrote these words: “MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN” (Daniel 5:1-5). “In the same hour came forth fingers of a man's hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaster of the wall of the king's palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote. Then the king's countenance was changed, and his thoughts troubled him, so that the joints of his loins were loosed, and his knees smote one against another. [In other words, he was frightened out of his wits.] The king cried aloud to bring in the astrologers, the Chaldeans, and the soothsayers. And the king spake, and said to the wise men of Babylon, Whosoever shall read this writing, and shew me the interpretation thereof, shall be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about his neck, and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom. Then came in all the king's wise men: but they could not read the writing, nor make known to the king the interpretation thereof. Then was king Belshazzar greatly troubled, and his countenance was changed in him, and his lords were astonied.
“Now the queen, by reason of the words of the king and his lords came into the banquet house: and the queen spake and said, O king, live for ever: let not thy thoughts trouble thee, nor let thy countenance be changed: There is a man in thy kingdom, in whom is the SPIRIT of the HOLY gods [GOD]; and in the days of thy father light and understanding and wisdom, like the wisdom of the gods [GOD], was found in him; whom the king Nebuchadnezzar thy father, the king, I say, thy father, made master of the magicians, astrologers, Chaldeans, and soothsayers; Forasmuch as an excellent spirit, and knowledge, and understanding, interpreting of dreams, and shewing of hard sentences, and dissolving of doubts, were found in the same Daniel, whom the king named Belteshazzar: now let Daniel be called, and he will shew the interpretation.
“Then was Daniel brought in before the king. And the king spake and said unto Daniel, Art thou that Daniel, which art of the children of the captivity of Judah, whom the king my father brought out of Jewry? I have even heard of thee, that the spirit of the gods [GOD] is in thee, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom is found in thee. And now the wise men, the astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing, and make known unto me the interpretation thereof: but they could not shew the interpretation of the thing: And I have heard of thee, that thou canst make interpretations, and dissolve doubts: now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me the interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom.
“Then Daniel answered and said before the king, Let thy gifts be to thyself, and give thy rewards to another; yet I will read the writing unto the king, and make known to him the interpretation. O thou king, the MOST HIGH GOD gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father a kingdom, and majesty, and glory, and honour: And for the majesty that HE gave him, all people, nations, and languages, trembled and feared before him: whom he would he slew; and whom he would he kept alive; and whom he would he set up; and whom he would he put down. But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and THEY took his glory from him: And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: THEY fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the MOST HIGH GOD ruled in the kingdom of men, and that HE appointeth over it whomsoever HE will. And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this; But hast lifted up thyself against the LORD of HEAVEN; and they have brought the vessels of HIS house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the GOD in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified: Then was the part of the hand sent from HIM; and this writing was written. And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; GOD hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.
“Then commanded Belshazzar, and they clothed Daniel with scarlet, and put a chain of gold about his neck, and made a proclamation concerning him, that he should be the third ruler in the kingdom. In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain. And Darius the Median took the kingdom, being about threescore and two years old” (Daniel 5:5-31).
Nebuchadnezzar was the first worldly kingdom on a four kingdom totem pole in a vision Daniel had, which he interpreted for king Nebuchadnezzar. Nebuchadnezzar had seen this in a dream vision, but he had forgotten what he had seen. The king called in his magicians, soothsayers, wise men, and Chaldeans, but they could not recall the dream vision the king had. The king threatened to kill them all if they could not tell him what the vision was (Daniel 2:1-13).
Daniel sought the LORD in prayer, and the LORD showed Daniel the exact dream vision that the king had seen. Because of this, the king knew Daniel had a strong connection with GOD. Daniel showed the king the dream vision, which was the totem pole with the four worldly kingdoms and the fifth kingdom, which is the HEAVENLY EVERLASTING KINGDOM (Daniel 2:14-45). This vision of the kingdoms is one of the most supernatural proofs that the Bible is 110% true. These kingdoms are absolute world history, and are easily traced in our history books. The king saw them, then Daniel told him—and us—what they were:
“Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible. This image's head was of fine gold [Babylon], his breast and his arms of silver [Media, Persia, which is today’s Iraq and Iran], his belly and his thighs of brass [which is Greece], His legs of iron [which is the first Roman kingdom that fell], his feet part of iron and part of clay [today’s Roman revived Satanic kingdom]. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces. [This stone is the chief corner stone, which is JESUS, the ROCK of AGES. This is the last kingdom, the Heavenly kingdom, which is forever and ever.] Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain [a great Godly nation], and filled the whole earth. [The nation is the Kingdom of GOD.] This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.
”Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the GOD of Heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath HE given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold. And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. And in the days of these kings shall the GOD of Heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great GOD hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. Then the king Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face, and worshipped Daniel, and commanded that they should offer an oblation and sweet odours unto him. The king answered unto Daniel, and said, Of a truth it is, that your GOD is a GOD of gods, and a LORD of kings, and a revealer of secrets, seeing thou couldest reveal this secret” (Daniel 2:31-47).
After the king Nebuchadnezzar was filled with pride, ignoring GOD’S warning, GOD gave him the heart of a beast, an ox, and he grazed with the beasts for seven years. After this, GOD gave him back his reasoning skills, and he, ruler of the world kingdom, gave glory to the MOST HIGH GOD (Daniel chapter 4). “And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the MOST HIGH, and I praised and honoured HIM that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation: And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and HE doeth according to HIS will in the army of HEAVEN, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay HIS hand, or say unto HIM, What doest THOU?” (Daniel 4:34-35).
The first king on the totem pole gave glory to GOD because GOD humbled him (Daniel chapter 4). The next two world rulers (Media-Persia and Greece) also gave glory to the LORD by making it possible for the Jews to return to their homeland.2 But the fourth king? Daniel Chapter 7 says he is different than the other three world rulers. He’s different because he hates GOD, GOD’S WORD, and GOD’S people.3 He is a fatherless child, a bastard. “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast [the last world ruler], dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns” (Daniel 7:7). “Dreadful and terrible” means that he hates all human life, every human soul, and is at war with them, especially the saints. He oppresses the people of the world with false famines and droughts, all brought about through government regulations. He is, with the government, murdering hundreds of millions of unborn babies, six hundred million alone in China, and one million each year in the U.S. He is destroying the entire earth (Isaiah 14:12-17, Revelation 11:18). “Stamps out the residue” means anything decent, anything of the LORD, is stamped with the feet of it, with the very last bit of strength of it.4 Yes, this truly is the devil’s government, his final bid to cause such depression that people will just want to throw in the towel, end their lives, and give up their salvation.5
The ten horns on the head of this demonic government (Satan) are the ten European governments that make themselves a part of Satan’s one world government for a short spell of time. The Bible says that these European governments shall hate the whore.6 The whore is the false prophet whose seat is in Rome. The seat of Rome is the Vatican, and Satan’s seat is the Vatican (Revelation 17:1-15, 2:12-13).
The dragon, or the great red dragon, is called, “that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:9). This is Satan, the fourth world kingdom. “Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time. [The time is short (Revelation 12:13).] And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted [SPIRITUAL Israel, which brought forth the MESSIAH]” (Daniel 12:12-13).
We are running out of time. The time to repent, the time to learn the WORD of GOD and keep HIS commandments is short, so repent of all your sins and become filled with the SPIRIT of GOD. Then you may live with the LORD and us in Heaven forever and ever. Repent now by saying this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
