How Are Egypt, Libya and Ethiopia Fit in Bible Prophecy?

2/26

“Then he will stretch out his hand against other countries, and the land of Egypt will not escape. But he will gain control over the hidden treasures of gold and silver and over all the precious things of Egypt; and Libyans and Ethiopians will follow at his heels.” (Daniel 11:42-43)

The Hebrew meaning of “Libya” is “dry”; “Ethiopia” means “black”.

When he “gain(s) control over the hidden treasures of gold and silver and over all the precious things,” those people whose hearts are “dry” and who are thirsting after these treasures of gold, or those who dare to use any method, however “black”, to obtain their goals, would they not be moved to follow this leader?

Perhaps we cannot rule out the possibility for certain special events to take place in regions ...

Is China in Bible Prophecy?

2/03

“After this I kept looking, and behold, another one, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird; the beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.” (Daniel 7:6)

This Third Beast that Daniel saw in his vision refers to China.

It is not too hard for people this day and age to figure it out: with a galloping economic growth in Mainland China, isn’t this country like a “Golden Leopard” with wings of a bird?

This golden leopard has four heads – the Mainland, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, and each was governed by its own “head” in the past and some are still operating as “one country with two systems” – these are undeniable realities.

The book of Zechariah speaks of this fast growing worldwide trade in a figurative language as “two women… had wi...

“And behold, another beast, a second one, resembling a bear. And it was raised up on one side, and three ribs were in its mouth between its teeth; and thus they said to it, ‘Arise, devour much meat!’” (Daniel 7:5)

The Second Beast refers to the former Soviet Union before being split apart after the Second World War.

This former united country in the Socialist camp, nicknamed the “Russian Bear,” once had three small republic member states located in the area of the Baltic Sea: Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Open a map and see the pictures — do they not look like the “three ribs… in its mouth between its teeth”?

During the Cold War between the camp of socialist Iron Curtain rule and the camp of capitalist democratic rule, how many countries in Eastern Europe and other pa...

Is United States of America in Bible Prophecy?

2/01

The first was like a lion and had the wings of an eagle. I kept looking until its wings were plucked, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man; a human mind also was given to it. (Daniel 7:4)

Living in the eve of Jesus’ Second Coming and looking from where we stand today, it is not hard for us to see what the four beasts that Daniel saw stand for.

For the First Beast that “was like a lion and had the wings of an eagle,” it refers to the Euro-American countries that are represented by the United Kingdom and United States of America, characterized by their Christian culture and background.

Just take a glance at the lion figures in the coat of arms of U.K. and Canada, and then look at the eagles on the national emblems of U.S...
