Daniel 7:7-8, 19-21, 23-25
This beast is Rome, diverse because she is political and also religious, she was to rise and fall ten times.
Rome was brutal and reigned politically unopposed until she fell in 476 AD with its last emperor Romulus Augustulus. It was then that the Popes stepped into the void and got power and brought in its version of Christianity. Constantine adopted the faith and changed the Sabbath to Sunday worship and corrupted the doctrines. The Roman church took control for at least a thousand years.
The ten horns are ten men who tried to restore the empire, the first three were Germanic, the first of whom was the Herulians who were succeeded by the Ostrogoths (Gothic) who were succeeded by the Vandals (vandalism-great destroyers) these three disappeared from history, wiped out.
Then came Justinian, Charles who was named Charlemagne, Otto the Great, Charles the 5th, Napoleon Bonaparte (defeated at Waterloo) Benito Mussolini (shot April 28th 1945.
From this we have European Economic Community (Hitler's Plan) now called the EU , they have longed for a man with the vision to unite and revive the Roman Empire. Anyone who wants to join the common market must sign up to the treaty of Rome. Margaret Thatcher recognized that this joining together was more that having a common market but rather taking away the sovereignty of the nations and establishing a single government over them all and refused to go in so they had to seek another way to get Britain involved and gained access through Margaret Thatcher's right hand men, Douglas Hurd and Francis Maude and that was the end of the Thatcher reign. The topic of the day is Brexit from which we had a referendum to come out, but when was there a referendum to join the EU?
The little Horn is the Pope's office which has continued in its religious mode.
