Case I: The 10 Regions(Unions,Communities, Kingdoms)
Daniel 7:23-25, "He gave me this explanation: 'The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time.
The "ten horns" are explained in Daniel 7:23-25 and Revelation 17:12 to be ten kings, and the whole vision is of the last form of Gentile world-power, a confederated ten-kingdom empire, most likely covering the whole Earth. Now, it's interesting to note, that on the year 1972, the Club of Rome proposed a plan to divide the whole world into 10 Regions. Could these 10 regions be the 10 Horns of the Bible? Now, the question arises is that who will control these regions? Scholars have suggested that the Anti-Christ(Little Horn) would be in controll of such regions. But what does the word of God say? Daniel 7:8, "While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth that spoke boastfully.. Noticed that this 'little horn' is a man, and a very proud one. Therefore, could this man have total controll of the whole world?
Furthermore, this proposed 10 regions will be divided into countries, or members belonging to their particular regions. Below, you will find a comparison regarding the proposed 10 regions, and the current unions and proposed:Figure.1 Figure.2
As you can see from the above maps, 10 Regions-Fig.1 is information that goes back to the Cold War Era. This map was obtained from research I did on the internet, you are welcome to Google and see the results you get. Therefore, if we were to compare such Map with the newly born Communities(Unions)-Fig.2, we could find some discrepancies. Nevertheless, the discrepencies aren't crucial. For example, the coming NAU(North American Union), which is theorized to be implemented in 2010, started back in the days of NAFTA(North American Free Trade Agreement) back in the 90's, and now the government calls it the SPP(Security Prosperity Partnership), you can see that Mexico is not included in Fig.1, but it's included in the proposed NAU. The reasons for such discrepancies could be due to the fact, that Fig.1 is a Map that goes back to the Cold War area, and lots of barriers were set in place: Example(Western Europe, Eastern Europe, South Africa). But now, that communism fell in the Soviet Union, the apartheid is over, well it's full steam ahead for the kingdoms. Moreover, what does the word of God say about such Unions(Kingdoms)?
In Daniel 7:20-22, it speaks of a 'little horn' coming out of the 10 Horns, who will speak boastfully against the Most High God. Moreover, some theologians have stated this 'little horn' signifies the Anti-Christ, who will wage war against the Saints. In fact, he was defeating the Saints, until the Ancient of Days came and pronounced judgement in favor of the saints on the Most High God, and thus the saints possessed the everlasting kingdom. Moreover, in Daniel 7:26," But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be handed over to the saints, the people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him." As you can see God will conquered all the kingdoms(10 Horns)under the earth. The question arises, how will God accomplished this? Well, it will not be through peacefull means, but through war. In Revelation 19:11-21, it depicts our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, coming down from heaven with his heavenly Army to wage war against the Beast and his Kingdoms. It states the following: Revelation 19:11-21,"I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine linen, white and clean. Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations. 'He will rule them with an iron scepter'." He treads the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. And I saw an angel standing in the sun, who cried in a loud voice to all the birds flying in midair, 'Come, gather together for the great supper of God, so that you may eat the flesh of kings, generals, and mighty men, of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, small and great.' Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies gathered together to make war against the rider on the horse and his army. But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. The rest of them were killed with the sword that came out of the mouth of the rider on the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.
As you can see from the above passage, our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, will come to defeat the Armies of earth in a final conflict, called the Battle of Armageddon. Therefore,the kingdom of God will be established on Earth, as we can see from Daniel 2:44-45,"In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. This is the meaning of the vision of the rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands—a rock that broke the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver and the gold to pieces." Therefore, the kingdom of God will be an everlasting one, that will never end". Noticed that it states, in the times of those kings, we are living in such times. The 10 regions are awakening and yet few people realize it. This verse also speaks of a rock cut out of a mountain, but not by human hands. This 'Rock' is our Lord Jesus Christ, cut out of a mountain(God's Kingdom), but not by human hands(Holy Spirit). Thus, this mountain will fill the whole Earth. Come Lord Jesus Christ, come......as is states on Matthew 6:9-13, "This, then, is how you should pray: 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,'your kingdom come', 'your will be done on earth as it is in heaven'. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.'
