The gold head is the Babylon Empire, which began to rule since 607 AD.
2500 ago God had opened to Daniel how many kingdoms or world empires will rise
before the second coming of Jesus*. As you see, the
present generation is in this picture in the temporary interval between
"feet" and «ten toes».
some years after the king's vision Daniel had a vision:
rising from the sea (a sea in the Bible is symbolic,
it means: the peoples and the languages).
” The first was like
a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till
the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made
stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.
…a second, like
to a bear, and it raised up itself on one
side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they
said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.
a leopard, which had upon the back of it
four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to
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.
I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them»
I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit…the judgment was set, and the books were opened. I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spoke: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.
concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their
lives were prolonged for a season and time. I saw in the night visions, and,
behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the
Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him
dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages,
should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass
away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed” (Dan.7:4-14)
In the Bible Oriental Empires such as China, Japan, Korea and others have no
place there, because they did not related with the Jewish nation
