Daniel 7:1-3 said:
In Bible Prophecy, Beasts always represent Kingdoms or Nations, as referenced in Daniel 7:17.
Daniel 7:4 said:
Most everyone knows that the national symbol for Great Britain is the Lion, and the national symbol for America is the Eagle. However what's most striking about this passage is that the Eagle's wings that this prophetic Lion possesses are torn off from it. This sounds strikingly similar to the American Revolution, especially considering the U.S. was born from Great Britain. If you think about the American revolution and use the two Nation's Mascots in place of their names, then an 'Eagle was literally torn off from a Lion.'
Not only that, but in Revelation 12, the woman with the 12 stars over her head (twelve tribes of Judah) who gave birth to the messiah obviously represents the nation of Israel, yet in Revelation 12:14 she was given "the two great wings of an Eagle." The United States has always supported Israel, and was founded as a Christian Nation. It makes sense why Israel gains the two Eagle wings, if the two Eagle wings in Daniel are the U.S.

Many of you may also know that the symbol or mascot for Russia is the bear. I honestly don't know whether the rest of the above passage is relevant or not, nor if it is what it's significance would be. All I know is that Beasts in Bible Prophecy are directly mentioned as representing Nations or Kingdoms, and if Great Britain and the U.S. are described above this passage, then this passage most likely represents Russia.
Daniel 7:6 said:
The national symbol for Germany is the Leopard. If the Eagle wings on the Lion represent a revolution such as the American revolution, then the wings on the Leopard could easily represent the German revolution of WW I, and the Nazi Party Germany WW II. Notice these wings don't break off from the Leopard because these two revolutions don't break away from Germany. As for the four heads of the Leopard, once again I honestly don't know. However with this many connections, I'm absolutely sure this is Germany and hopefully some of you could help out in solving this piece of the puzzle with me.
The fourth Beast in Bible prophecy is describing the coming one world government of the antichrist which is obviously not here yet, however I may discuss this part in a separate thread.
I would also note that these four Nations mentioned above (Great Britain, The United States, Russia, and Germany) are not just any random collection of Nations today, but are quite possible the most notable four Nations of this century for being so deeply rich in worldwide history. Also this chapter (Daniel 7) is a deep description of end time prophecy, and if the U.S. is the Eagle's wings on the Nation of Israel (Rev. 12:14) then this gives even greater insight as to exactly how close we actually are to the end times.
Peace and God Bless.
