Image and Ten Toes of Daniel

Babylon Under King Nebuchadnezzar the Head of Gold in the Image Seen by Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 2

God gives King Nebuchadnezzar a dream of an immense idolatrous image of different metals standing on the plain in the land of Shinar (part of modern Iraq). The modern name of this country Iraq I think is derived from the ancient Sumerian (Shinar) city Uruk. God revealed to Nechadnezzar through his prophet Daniel that Nebuchadnezzar was the head of gold of this image. The metals going down the image are of successively inferior metals which is probably a symbol of the successive world empires would be of successively inferior moral qualities. God instructed Nebuchanezzar that He had given Nechadnezzar and his empire of Babylon a mandate of a kingdom, power, strength and glory. God also said he had given Nechadnezzar and Babylon under him all the animals in the earth and the land of the earth for his empire but this wasn't all conquered by Nebuchadnezzar because his grandson Belshazzar failed to honour God and had his empire confiscated to the Medes and Persians in 539 BC. Some Christians, especially those who hold to the so-called covenant theology, might use this or similiar scriptures to promote the idea that the world system or its kingdoms are given by God and therefore basically good. However in the Gospel of Luke 4 in the passage about the temptation of the Lord Jesus Christ by the devil God makes it clear by Jesus not challenging the devil when he says that he has power over the kingdoms of the world that are given to him (by God) and to whoever he would give it that he has power to king world authority to human rulers. Any presumed contradiction can be reconciled with the idea that God has overall authority of the authorities on earth but that he has allowed the devil to have control under him and give authority to whoever he wants. There were many things in the system or Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome that were not ideal from God's perspective such as idolatry, immorality, violence etc. and that are more in line with the devil's values. The devil offered all this authority to Jesus if Jesus would bow down and worship Satan. Jesus refused quoting scripture that we should worship or serve only God. Jesus was still then interested in world authority but he knew that that wasn't the right time and that God the Father will give Jesus that authority after Jesus' second coming instead. The dream to Nechadnezzar was probably given between 600 and 550 BC. This head of gold also corresponds to the first beast of Daniel 7 in a dream given by God to Daniel himself also of the four world empires. Babylon is likened to a lion that had eagle's wings which was a symbol of Babylon. It is also mentioned that a man's heart was given to this ruler which is probably a reference to Nebuchadnezzar when his sanity and human understanding was restored to him as in Daniel 4:34 after it was taken from him in Daniel 4:16 by God to humble him. This world empire under Nebuchadnezzar was the beginning of the occupation of Israel and Jerusalem by Gentile or non-Jewish nations directly or by puppet rulers and what is sometimes called the Times of the Gentiles. This started about 600 BC with the beginning of the Babylonian captivity of the Jews and will continue until the Lord Jesus the Messiah (Christ) comes in His glory and that of God the Father with believers and holy angels at the end of the tribulation to set up the 1000 year Messianic Kingdom with Israel then having its independence restored as the then chief nation on earth in fulfillment of the blessings of the promises and covenants to them in the Old Testament. The scripture references in Daniel 2 and 7 of Babylon as the first world empire in the Times of the Gentiles and of the devil having more immediate power of the kingdoms of the world such as Babylon from Luke 4 are as follows:

Scripture Reference in Daniel 2 of Babylon as the First World Empire in the Times of the Gentiles from about 604 to 538 BC in Vision of the Image of Metals

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. Daniel 2:37-38

Scripture Reference in Daniel 7 of Babylon as the the First World Empire in the Times of the Gentiles from about 604 to 538 BC in Vision of the Beasts

In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, and told the sum of the matters. Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea (Mediterranean). And four beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. 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. Daniel 7:1-4

Scripture Reference from Gospel of Luke 4 of the Devil Having Been Given Immediate Authority Over the Kingdoms of the World

And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him (Jesus), All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsover I will give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. Gospel of Luke 4:5-7

Description of Medo-Persian Empire as Second World Empire in Times of the Gentiles from Daniel 2 and 7 from 539 to 333 BC

The second empire in Daniel if of silver a metal inferior to gold meaning the morals and glory of this second kingdom or empire would be inferior to that of Babylon under Nechadnezzar which was the case for the Medo-Persian empire. However the moral quality of the Medo-Persian empire would still be superior to the following empires or kingdoms. This kingdom of the Medo-Persians started when the Medo-Persians under Cyrus defeated the Babylonians in 539 BC until the Persians were defeated by the Greeks under Alexander the Great in 333 BC. In the parallel passage in Daniel 7 the Medo-Persian empire is likened unto a bear that had three ribs in its teeth. These three ribs would correspond to the three divisions of the Persian kingdom of Media, Persia and Babylonia. The instruction for it to devour much flesh would be for it to take much land and subjugate many people in battles. The scripture references in Daniel 2 and 7 of this second world empire in the Times of the Gentiles Medo-Persia from 539 to 333 BC is as follows:

Scripture Reference in Daniel 2 of Medo-Persia from 539 to 333 BC as Silver Breasts and Arms as Second World Empire in the Times of the Gentiles

This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass. ... And after thee (Nebuchadnezzar) shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. Daniel 2:32, 39

Scripture Reference in Daniel 7 of Medo-Persia from 539 to 333 BC as Second Beast a Bear in Daniel's Dream of Four Beasts of the Times of the Gentiles

And behold another beast, 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. Daniel 7:5

Darius the First King of the Medes and Persians to Rule Succeeding Babylon Understood That God Had Given Him Worldwide Authority from Daniel 6

Darius the first king of the Medes and Persians that succeeded the Babylonians understood that God had given him worldwide authority. This authority was offered by God but under the devil to each of the world empires in the times of the Gentiles starting with Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon around 600 BC. Darius in this proclamation makes clear that even though he didn't actually have control over all the world he understood he was allotted that and achieving it was a possibility. The scripture reference from Daniel 6 of Darius the Mede understanding he had worldwide authority from God that was actually also what God had give through the devil is as follows:

Scripture Reference from Daniel 6 of Darius the Mede's Proclamation that God Had Given Him Authority Over All the World

Then Darius wrote unto all people, nations, and languages, that dwell in all the earth; Peace be multiplied unto you. I make a decree, That in every dominion of my kingdom men tremble and fear before the God of Daniel: for he is the living God, and stedfast for ever, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed, and his dominion shall be even unto the end. Daniel 6:25-26

Description in Daniel 2 and 7 of Greece as the Third World Empire from 333 to 63 BC in the Times of the Gentiles

The third world empire, Greece, started with Alexander the Great's victory over the Persians in 333 BC and continued to 63 BC with their defeat at the hands of the Romans under Pompey. This kingdom or empire was called a kingdom of brass which is yet more inferior to silver under the Medo-Persians of gold under the Babylonians. In the parallel passage in Daniel 7 the third, Greek, empire is described as a leopard. This is to emphasize the swiftness of the Greek forces especially under Alexander the Great. The four wings of a fowl and the beast having four heads refer to the division of the Greek empire into four parts, namely 1/ Macedonia and Greece, 2/ Phrygia and Lycia, 3/ Egypt and 4/ Thrace. The scripture references in Daniel 2 and 7 of the third world empire the Greeks in the Times of the Gentiles is as follows

Scripture Reference from Daniel 2 of the Third World Empire of the Greeks from 333 to160 BC as the Belly and Thighs of Brass in the Times of the Gentiles

This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, ... And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. Daniel 2:32, 39

Scripture Reference from Daniel 7 of the Third World Empire of Greece from 333 to 160 BC as the Leopard in the Times of the Gentiles

After this I beheld, and lo another, like 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 it. Daniel 7:6

Description of Rome the Fourth World Empire of the Times of the Gentiles from 160 BC and Later Divided into East and West in 396 AD in Daniel 2 and 7

The last of the four empires or kingdoms was (and is) Rome that began in 160 BC by the victory of the Romans over the Greeks. As iron is an inferior metal in value to the other metals the moral character of the Roman empire would be lower than that of its predecessors. However iron is also a very strong metal and this spoke of the strength of the Roman armies that conquored much of the known world of that time in quite a ruthless way which speaks of the iron breaking in pieces and bruising. This kingdom would in its final form be divided into ten regions corresponding to the ten toes and probably the ten final world regions during the reign of the Antichrist who will probably be of Roman background but which I describe in more detail in a following section. Of course it was also during the time of the Roman empire that the Lord Jesus Christ had his first earthly life and ministry. After the death of the Roman emperor Theodosius the Great the Roman Empire was divided into eastern and western parts in about 396 AD which could correspond to the two legs of iron with the western section being overun by northern barbarian tribes in 476 AD and the eastern part centered on Constantinople (now Istanbul) overun by Muslim Turks to form the Ottoman Empire in 1054 AD. However in a way the Roman empire has continued to this time in the form of the Roman Catholic Church which could be used by the Antichrist in his rise to power at the beginning of the tribulation or 70th week of Daniel. The fourth world empire of Rome is also described in Daniel 7 as a dreadful, strong and fantastic beast that had iron teeth and that devoured and broke in pieces its prey and had ten horns. This also describes the strength and ruthlessness of the Roman Empire armies and its subduing many other people in its expansion. The ten horns correspond to the ten toes of the image of Daniel chapter 2 for which I give more description in following paragraphs. The fourth world empire of the legs of iron and toes and the fourth beast of the Roman Empire from 63 BC to the second coming in glory of the Lord Jesus Christ to set up his kingdom on earth in Daniel 2 and 7 is as follows:

Scripture Reference in Daniel 2 of Legs and Toes of Iron Representing the Fourth World Empire, Rome from 160 BC in the Times of the Gentiles

His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay. ... 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. Daniel 2:33, 40

Scripture Reference in Daniel 7 of Vicious, Fantastic Beast Representing the Fourth World Empire, Rome from 160 BC in the Times of the Gentiles

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, 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

Conclusion About Identity of 10 Toes of the Image or Ten Horns of the Beast in Daniel 2 and 7

After watching for a long time I and some well-known Bible prophecy teachers and I'm sure other individual Christians came to think that the ten toes of Daniel representing the end-time form of the 4th and last world empire of the Revived Roman Empire is not ten nations of the European Union but 10 regions of the world. According to a video I recently saw from the Bible prophecy teacher Dave Hunt called A Woman Rides the Beast these ten regions were set by The Club of Rome and have already been adopted by the world banking and computer sectors. In a more recent book I read I have found out the Club of Rome is a New Age organization with a strong environmentalist bias including the extreme belief that the earth's population should be severely diminished to 1 or 1/2 billion from its current 7 billion or so and that some of these global elite have some intention to carry this out at the right time when they have the opportunity. This will probably be in the tribulation when they have visible as well as behind the scenes control and the criteria for people being spared will probably be whether they are loyal to the beast or the antichrist who will then be world ruler. Among other things this will mean any person whoafter the rapture of the Church trusts in Jesus - the only way of eternal life and a relationship with God - will be marked for death by the Antichrist and his forces. Some other globalist groups such as the Wildlands project and probably The Federation of Earth and the Georgia Guidestones New Age pilgrimage site in Georgia in the United States say a similiar thing.

One Leg of Iron mixed with clay is based on the western part of the former Roman Empire

There are 5 toes of iron mixed with clay from this leg, they are all based in the western part of the Roman Empire.

These regions are:1/Western Europe; 2/North America including the United States; 3/ Latin America including the Caribbean(Middle America, The Caribbean Basin, Eastern South America and Western South America on map(map on link with Sent Ministries);4/Subsaharan Africa (that were mostly colonies of western Europe)(West Africa, Eastern Africa and Southern Africa on map); 5/ Australia, New Zealand and Oceania(part of South Africa on map)

One Leg ofIron is the Eastern Roman Empire Based in Constantinople (now Istanbul, Turkey)

There are 5 Toes of Iron Mixed with Clay from this Leg, They are all Based in the Eastern Part of the Roman Empire.

They are: 1/ Eastern Europe and Russia(Central and Eastern Europe on map); 2/ Middle East including North Africa, Israel and the former Soviet Central Asian Republics and Turkey as well as Arab Asian Countries(Central Asia and Northern Africa and the Middle East on map); 3/ Indian subcontinent(South Asia) and Southeast Asia; 4/China; 5/ Japan and Korea(East Asia and Western Pacific on map)

English North America as a Possible Third Horn or Region of the World to Give Up Power to the Little Horn or Antichrist in the Tribulation from Daniel 7

In Daniel 7, probably the 3 horns that will give up their power to the little horn speaking great things are the regions of Western Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia, and North America. These are probably the 3 regions of power that will give up their power to the end-times leader of the horn that will be the Anti-Christ or Beast out of the Sea that will likely rule from Rome. It is possible that the pope's tiara that has three crowns or the treregnum will be brought back with a new edition with the words Vicarius Filii Dei or substitute for the son of God when the Antichrist or beast takes power as the world ruler at the beginning of the tribulation or 70th week of Daniel probably also by taking office as the 112th pope of Saint Malachy's prophecy. The three crowns of the tiara could then also represent the three regions of the world likely Western Europe, Eastern Europe and either English North America or the Middle East the Beast out of the sea or the Antichrist will subdue and take control of. As of 2011 it now seems more likely that the third horn that the Antichrist will uproot and use for his power base with Europe in the tribulation is English North America as for some time since 2008 or 2009 English North America especially United States has had similiar financial deficit and debt problems as Europe and similiar global solutions. This is also linking their economies up more closely than before and probably preparing for the rule of the antichrist in the tribulation. This now seems more likely than North Africa as being the third region as the political upheaval in North Africa has driven them further away from Europe than they were before and they don't share the same financial problems and solutions that Europe and English North America do. If this is the case some international bodies that have formed and continue to form links between these regions are NATO or North Atlantic Treaty Organization which has military links between English North America and Western Europe and since early this year also several countries in Eastern Europe and their website can be found at NATO. Another political/economic international body mostly composed of countries from English North America and Western Europe but recently often also including Russia from Eastern Europe is the G7 or G8 or Group of Seven or Group of Eight. Another organization that is mostly composed of nations in English North America, Western and Eastern Europe although it includes a significant number of nations from other parts of the world is the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). It is composed of more affluent nations in order to give social and economic assistance to developing countries in the world. Its web site can be found at OECD. Also the European Union website is the following: European Union

Another European Union web site with regular news including the activities of the people in the two new positions the President and Foreign Minister of the European Union under the new Lisbon Treaty is:

EU Observer Web Site A Christian view of these ten kings and ten regions is the following: Sent Ministries Article and Map About 10 World Magna Regions
The world constitution has already been produced by the World Constitution and Parliament an organization intent in securing one world government soon. World Constitution Including 10 Magna Regions (10 Horns and Kings of Daniel and Revelation)

This web site is just shown for information purposes it is definitely not advisable to sign up on their goverment to do so would to become very entangled in the end times form of the world government as the last stages of this world system of the god of this world the devil, Satan or Lucifer that is adversial to the church or world of God through His Son Jesus Christ that will obtain the victory over this world with Jesus' second coming at the end of the tribulation or 70th week of Daniel.

June 2014 Update of Most Likely Candidate for 3rd Horn (Region) to be Taken Over by the Antichrist

Recent events in some parts of the world have confirmed my thinking about what 3rd region of the world will be most closely allied with the Antichrist or Little Horn in the tribulation. I was leaning in this direction anyway but the now almost ratified free trade deal (CETA) the Canada European (Union) Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union and the now underway for negotiations Trans Altlantic Partnership of Trade and Investment between United States and the European Union means that there is a much closer link between the United States and Europe on the way. I have also heard that Canada to some degree signed away some of our sovereignty to the European Union under the CETA agreement. All these things mean there is now or will likely be shortly much closer ties between the European Union and English North America which makes it much more likely that English North America that is one of the ten regions or horns of the beast will be the third one that is uprooted by the Little Horn the Antichrist with putting himself directly as replacement for these horns to have these three regions as his powerbase going into and probably throughout the tribulation. The other possibility I was considering was the Arab world dominated Middle East region but the Arab Spring there recently and still carrying on in places like Syria and Lebanon and perhaps Egypt mean that this region is now even more distant politically and economically (and religiously or culturally) from Europe than is was a couple years ago before the Arab spring. Even though the Middle East was formerly a main part of the former Roman Empire it seems now that English North America not the Middle East will be the third horn that will be directly taken over by the Antichrist to form his powerbase for his rule in the tribulation. However this is something we should keep watch on.

February 2020 Summary of Conclusion of Main Stage of Brexit Process by End of January 2020 and General or Bible Prophecy Significance

On January 31, 2020, after a long process and much of the time a lot of uncertainty, the main phase of the Brexit process of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union (EU) concluded. This was after about three years of heavy emphasis of the Brexit process in the United Kingdom (UK) and substantial focus on it in EU political circles and society. The final significant step was a vote in the EU Parliament where the EU gives its permission for Brexit to be realized by a vote of 621 votes for and 49 votes against with 13 members abstaining. This vote was held on January 29, 2020. A substantial number of the EU Parliament who voted to allow the UK to leave the EU said they did it to enable Brexit to be an orderly process and prevent a hard Brexit where the UK would leave the EU without any deal. Some members of the EU Parliament said they were sad to see the UK leave after expressing their gratitude for Britain formerly in World Wars 1 and 2 paying with the blood of some of their soldiers to liberate Europe from tyranny and restore freedom on continental Europe. Some of the Brexiteers from the UK in the EU parliament waved UK flags there and expressed their gladness to be leaving the EU and have more independence for the UK to set its own laws and culture rather than have strong control and agenda setting from the EU. A Conservative Party UK member of the European Parliament and Euroskeptic Daniel Hannan said public opinion in the UK started to go sour on the EU and British involvement in it when it was becoming more apparent that the main leaders of the EU were seeking to move the EU more and more to have centralized structure or to be a European superstate or as he put it a "quasi-state". Mr. Hannon went on to say in that regard about more in the UK being content with a continued more limited involvement of Britain in the UK in the following way: "If at any stage Britain had been able to have a trade-only relationship that would have been enough" and "You are losing a bad tenant and gaining a good neighbour." What follows is that much existing EU policy regarding the UK with continue until the end of 2020 including free movement of people and goods between the UK and other nations of the EU. In this period until December 31, 2020 there will also be intense efforts by both the UK and EU to develop a new trading and economic relationship between the UK and the rest of the EU. There will also begin efforts in earnest for the UK to develop new closer trading relationships with the US (and Canada) and Asian nations etc. to make up for less direct trading relations with the rest of the nations of the EU. There were parties or observances in different parts of the UK on the evening of January 31, 2020 Brexit Day either to celebrate more freedom for the UK as no longer being part of and uncle direct control of the EU for those who supported Brexit (the UK leaving the EU) or as a sad farewell but expression of appreciation of the rest of Europe and the European Union or globalism in general especially in liberal globalism by Britons who supported the UK to stay as part of the EU. The people of the latter group also generally expressed their desire for the UK to rejoin the EU in the near future and their observances often featured the EU flag with a circle of 12 yellow stars on a dark blue background. After the vote was taken and the results were announced in the EU Parliament most members there except perhaps such of the Brexiteers from the UK contingent of members of the European Parliament sang the traditional Scottish long of being sad to part company at least for the time being and that has become an unoffical anthem of Western New Year's Eve in North America Auld Lang Syne.

Some other reactions to the Brexit event included the following: From the BBC article Brexit: European Parliament overwhelmingly backs terms of UK's exit on January 29, 2020: "President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen said ratification of the withdrawal deal was "only a first step" towards a new partnership between the EU and the UK. ... The two should "join forces" in areas such as climate change, she said, and seek a close partnership following the UK's exit on Friday. ... " 'We will always love you and we will not be far' she told the UK in closing." Also, "The EU's Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier also wished the UK well, saying the block would approach talks on the future relationship with 'patience' and 'objectivity' while defending its members' interests." In another BBC article on Brexit on Brexit day January 31, 2020 with title Brexit day: UK gets ready to leave the EU there was a reflection from French president Emmanuel Macron who strongly supports a united Europe: "French President Emmanuel Macron has taken to Twitter to reiterate his feelings on Brexit, saying the relationship between France and the UK 'will continue to be strong.' " 'Between France and the United Kingdom, it is a long history made of blood, freedom, courage and battles that we share. The French know what they owe the British people, we will not forget,' he wrote." "He (French President Macron) added that it was a 'sad day' but also 'a day that much lead us to proceed differently, to build a powerful, effective European Union." "In an earlier TV address, the French president called the UK's exit a 'historic warning sign which must ... be heard by all of Europe and make us reflect.' " In the Brexit day article also outgoing UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn "urges the country (the United Kingdom) not to 'turn inwards' after it leaves the bloc (EU)." "Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says Brexit day is a 'pivotal moment' for Scotland and the UK." and, "Prime Minister Boris Johnson will publish a video message to hail the 'dawn of a new era' at 22:00 (10 PM on January 31, 2020)." Also from the Brexit Day BBC article: "Patrons at Sedgley Working Men's Club, in Dudley, will be joined on the dancefloor by former Brexit Party MEP (Member of the European Parliament) Bill Etheridge - who even brought a cake to mark the celebrations." "'I'm excited,' the former West Midlands representative (Mr. Etheridge) said, "I think we're going to have a great future- free. We're going to be able to make our own rules, our own regulations - it's brilliant. There's a bright future ahead.'" "Organizer Susie Courtault, of Brighton and Hove for Europe, said it was 'a very sad day for all those of us who have been fighting for the last three years to stop the UK leaving the EU'. She added: 'Brighton and Hove is an inclusive, tolerant and progressive city and we hereby commit to continuing to uphold the ideals and values of the European Union.'" Finally a reflection from, one of the primary Brexiteers including as a member of the UK parliament under former UK Prime Minister and UK Conservative leader Theresa May, Liam Fox in the BBC Brexit Day report: "Brexiteer Liam Fox says today is a 'historic day - but there were times when he wasn't sure whether Brexit would ever happen. The Tory (Conservative) MP, who served in Theresa's May's cabinet, says: 'There were moments where I did wonder particularly with the antics of (Speaker) John Bercow and some of the others, whether it was going to be stolen from the British people.' 'There were nervous times and I really worried about that because I wondered what the reaction of the British people would be if what they saw as the political class stopped them having what they had voted for in a referendum which the political class had given them in the first place,' he tells the BBC. 'I think that would have been democratically very, very damageing.' (he said)."

From a general perspective, the decision by the United Kingdom under the UK Conservative Party and their leader Boris Johnson to follow through and succeed at achieving Brexit will have an substantial effect on both the United Kingdom and the European Union now and into the future. While it does immediately grant some more independence or autonomy to the UK from the EU, it still has to be negotiated how extensive that independence of EU laws and treaties or justice system such as the whether the UK will still at all be under the EU Court of Justice or just under British law after negotiations between the UK and EU are concluded probably by the end of this year (2020). These more final trading relations between the EU and the UK, the latter which will now be considered a third country by the EU as far as trading relations are concerned, will also need to determine how much the UK will be allowed to get closer trading relations with the US or Asian nations or some other nations of the world and still keep to agreements of relatively close trading relations with the rest of Europe in the European Union. Also there will need to be determined how much the UK will be able to keep membership in EU based cultural, scientific or other organizations.

Right now those justice or legal laws still apply at least to Northern Ireland as far as I understand the parting deal of the UK from the EU and the terms of the border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic or Republic of Ireland in the south of Ireland which is still staying in the EU still needs to be determined. As of this writing in early Februay 2020, the initial results from a general parliamentary election in the Republic of Ireland are just being announced. They seem to give an almost equal three way split of the vote between the three main parties there: the Fine Gael party of the very politically liberal leader Leo Varadkar, the Fianna Fail party of Micheal Martin and the once Irish Republican Army (IRA) linked Sinn Fein party now led by Mary Lou McDonald. The results of the this Republic of Ireland general election and who will now lead the nation will likely also affect the UK EU separation terms especially with regard to Northern Ireland and the customs policy at the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland border. (The initial poll I heard gave all three of these parties just over 22% of the total vote in each by Republic of Ireland voters.)

From a Bible prophecy perspective, the realization of at least the main part of the Brexit goal means at least temporarily the United Kingdom (UK) is not as directly part of the European Union politically. This also means that the UK will become even more politically separated from the other European nations in the EU going forward with the main remaining nations especially the two largest ones Germany and France keen to give the EU more central control over the people and member European nations of the EU and their culture, laws, trade etc. This means that at least for the time being the UK would not be as directly and immediately exposed to the soon coming Satanic world ruler the Antichrist, Man of Sin, the Beast (out of the Sea) or he who causes abomination and his power base in Europe over the Revived Roman Empire as mentioned in Daniel chapters 2 and 7. The Revived Roman Empire or the last days especially in the 7 year tribulation between the rapture of the Church to heaven and the Second Coming in glory from heaven of God's Son the Lord Jesus Christ to the surface of the Earth is of the ten toes of iron and of clay in Daniel 2 that are partly strong and partly weak or of a unnatural brutal beast with ten horns for which one little horn (the Antichrist) grows up to take over three of those ten horns in Daniel 7. I still believe the iron in the first vision will be a dictatorial control and perhaps occultic mesmerization of the people and other leaders in Europe or other parts of the world to maintain control (like a stronger version of what occult incluenced German Nazi leader Adolf Hitler had in World War 2. The weaker clay part would be the different national cultural and linguistic differences in Europe and other parts of the world. In the Daniel 7 vision I believe the three horns directly taken over by the little horn (the Anti-Christ will be Russia and Eastern Europe as one, Western Europe as 1 and English North America as a third world region. (These and the other ten world regions including in one of the maps of this article are based on the divisions of the world by the globalist organization The Club of Rome that was founded in 1968.) I believe after the rapture of the Church the Antichrist or Beast out of the Sea etc. will either put the above three regions so closely together as his power base for ruling the rest of the world that it won't matter whether the UK has significantly move closer to trading, cultural or even perhaps some political ties with English North America or that right after the rapture of the Church and the immediate following revelation of the Antichrist to the world by his achieving a Middle East peace as mentioned in Daniel 9:27 and Revelation 11:1-2 that allows the Jews in Israel to build their next Jewish temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem as worship the LORD their with animal sacrifices and other aspects of the Levitical worship system to the LORD God or the Antichrist will force the UK back into the EU at the beginning of the 7 year tribulation or 70th week of Daniel.

Seeing this basic achievement of the UK Conservative Party and Brexit Party Brexit goal has now been achieved and renogiation of the remaining trading or other associations of the UK with the rest of the EU have started and will continue for much of this year and the more important change has been realized of removing the UK as a major obstructing factor from closer political, economic or even religious and military union of the remaining nations of the EU that will pave the way for the central part of the worldwide government of the Satanic and tyrannical Antichrist in the tribulation, I would urge the reader to as soon as possible trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour so you can be taken to heaven before the tribulation starts as in 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 5:1-9, Gospel of John 14:1-3 and 1 Corinthians 15:51-58 and Revelation 4:1-5 and 3:10. If you have already or you as soon as possible still trust in the Lord Jesus Christ with your heart (will) as well as head that we as human beings are all sinners in His and God the Father's completely righteous (but loving) sight and ask in prayer in Jesus' name to receive Jesus as our personal Lord and Saviour who died on the cross for all our sins and on the third day rose from the dead to offer and provide us with eternal life and a restored relationship with God as His spiritually and eternally restored children or people we can avoid going through the tribulation as well. We will then be able to be taken up to heaven with Jesus when He comes from His true Church very soon with new spiritual bodies and sinless born again natures to our heavenly homes and then seven years later get to come back to earth with Jesus to support Him to judge this world Matthew 26:62-65, 24:27-31, Revelation 1:7-8, Zechariah 12:8-10, Psalm 24, Matthew 25:31-46, Revelation 19:11-16, 20:1-3 etc.and share in reigning with Him and God the Father over this world for a thousand years and then forever on the New Earth, New Jerusalem and New Heavens and can be sure of avoiding eternity in hell and then the lake of fire we deserve for our sins in God's sight.
