though the Anglo-American domination is still brightly expressed in the public
life of the world, alongside with this nowadays we see others strong empires:
The bear with 3 ribs in his
is Russia with the three first states: Ukraine, Belorussia and Georgia*. «Devour
much flesh» - means that in the teeth of the Russian
bear many "ribs" - states have got then. Besides, Russia is likely to
be the only country in the world having so many various bloody wars.
with 4 heads and 4 bird wings
is Europe: Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland –
the most advanced empires. 4 heads are the equal management, 4 bird's wings -
close locality to each other.
is this 4th
dreadful and terrible animal?

Daniel's prophecy (7) will look like this:
Further, in «Revelation of
John», we will meet these images again.
Another Daniel's prophecy is the key one, and it contains answers to many questions: «Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.
after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself:
and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the
sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the
war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for
one week” (9:24-27). In this prophecy it is
told about the relationship between
God and the Jews from the time of Daniel up to the last days, when all
prophecies will come true, and Jesus will be "anoint" on an man
the prophecy was given to Daniel, the Jewish people were in the Babylon slavery.
The next event in the life of the Jews was their returning from slavery and
restoration of Jerusalem with its temple and city walls; then – the apparition
of Jesus in 29AD ** and his death, then – the destruction of the city and
temple (in 70AD). After time of Jesus God stopped the dialogue with people up to
the second coming of Jesus.
Some people believe that 3 ribs are Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.
