    Donald W. Revelation is a fascinating book given to us for our learning. It had difficult parts, but what is intended for our learning today isn't impossible to know with study. Most of the book ready came to pass as is stated in first chapters things at hand and will short come to pass. I suggest Introduction

    These beasts are world superpowers named in Daniel. Daniel was WAY back there looking forward, John in Rome looking back, thus reason for the inverted order. Same ol beasts, different vantage point. The conclusion of the prophecy is upon US like a duck on a June bug. It is Christ's will for us to know these things. All reformers and most folk did til about 100 years ago. Healed wound hid it.
