The 10 Toes of Daniel chapter 2 and the 10 horns of Daniel chapter 7


August 17, 2002


In January of 2001, in the first update issued by the Dardanelle MBC, a warning was issued concerning a healing reunion that was taking place in the Middle East between nations that will soon make up the 10 toes of Daniel 2, and the 10 horns of Daniel 7. The healing was a pattern of military unity between Syria, Iraq, and Iran that was rearing its ugly head. We began this first update by stating: “The beginnings of a pattern of military unity between Syria, Iran, and Iraq are now immerging in the Middle East. Iraq has recently conducted large-scale military maneuvers on the Syrian border, reportedly by prior agreement with its new President, Bashar Assad. Bashar then made a trip to Iran to hold talks with its President, Mohammad Khatami. The talks were described as a strategic dialogue.”

This healing process is taking time because of past conflicts that have occurred between these three nations, but it progressing because of a common healing balm – Their natural hatred for Israel, which far exceeds their dislike for each other. The great breaches between them occurred in the last decade. Iraq and Iran fought a bitter war that took the lives of millions. In previous updates we have told how recent prisoner exchanges from that war have softened the bitterness between them. The relations between Iraq and Syria, which are ruled by two rival wings of the Baath party, were severed in the eighties, but have been on the mend since 1997, fueled mainly by trade links. We have covered these trade links in detail in previous updates, as well as the sneaky way that Syria is militarily assisting Iraq and receiving oil benefits in return. So, as much as Syria and Iran do not like, or trust, Saddam Hussain, any attack against Israel must include Iraq in order to succeed. This is one of the reasons that Bashar, last month, sent a message to Saddam on the 34th anniversary of his rival Baath party rising to power in Baghdad. In the message he underlined his desire to boost the brotherly ties between Iraq and Syria.

An independent Jordanian newspaper, Al-Hilal, reported that last week Syrian President Bashar al-Assad met with Iraqi’s Saddam Hussain on the border between the two countries. The article said Assad took his brother, Maher, and the head of the Syrian Intelligence Service with him to the meeting. During the meeting the report stated that Saddam presented Assad with an ancient rifle taken from the Iraqi museum.

Whatever happens to Saddam Hussain is important, but what is most important in the minds of all the Islamic leaders is this – Their own survival and their need for one another in their quest to drive Israel into the sea. Leaders in the Middle East are, of course, important in immediate directions taken in their foreign policy, but any leader in the Middle East is always at high risk of being assassinated at any time. Leaders come and go, but the countries remain, and the countries of Syria, Iran, and Iraq will link together to fight their common enemy, Israel.

The coming 10 horned, 10 toed, union symbolized by the feet of a great statue, and 10 horns on a great beast will be made up of a coalition of Abraham’s descendants, which came not from the promised seed Isaac, but from the intermingled seed of the 12 sons of Ishmael and the 6 sons of Keturah. They have not, and will not, ever mix together into a permanent bond. However, when God puts in their hearts to do so, they will, for some 3 and ½ years, temporarily bond together to fulfill his prophecies concerning them. Some of the 10 nations, like Syria and Iran, will be strong like iron, and some of them, like Morocco and Tunisia, will be weak like clay. They will bond together in a Jihad against Israel and will initially be successful in driving the woman Israel into the Negev, but in the end they will suffer a smashing defeat by the returning Lamb of God at the Second Advent with all his saints.

Revelation 12:6 [6] And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

Daniel 2:41-43  [41] And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. [42] And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken. [43] And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

Revelation 17:17 [17] For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

Revelation 17:12-14  [12] And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. [13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. [14] These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

The Land of Magog Plans to Help Two of the Image’s Ten Toes!

Daniel 2:32,33  [32] This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass, [33] His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

Daniel 7:21 [21] I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

Ezekiel 38:1,2  [1] And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, [2] Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

Micah 5:5, 6 [5] And this man shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. [6] And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver us from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders.

The land of Magog is Russia. The chief prince of Meshech and Tubal is the Assyrian of Micah. At the time of the writings of the prophet Ezekiel the land of Magog represented what we know as southwestern Russia today, and the descendants of the tribes of Meshech and Tubal were settled in what we know as Syria (See Prophecy Update Number 27). At the time of the writings of the Prophet Micah the Assyrian Empire included all of the land we know today as Syria (See Prophecy Update Number 67, Part 6). So, Russia is the land of Magog, Syria is the home of the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and the ten toes most likely include the Palestinians, Morocco, Algeria, Iran, Tunisia, Lebanon Libya, Sudan, Syria, and Iraq.

The two toes most recently receiving promises of technological help from Magog are Iraq and Iran.

Russia is expected to sign a five-year economic co-cooperation agreement with Iraq in the near future, but a specific date has not yet been fixed. The pact will be worth at least 40 billion dollars in the fields of energy, transport, and agriculture. These are the same fields in which Syria and Iraq have signed pacts of agreement over the last two years.

The second toe being assisted by the land of Magog is Iran. The proposals are already on the table for a ten-year economic pact with Iran. The plan includes a Russian offer to supply up to six nuclear reactors to Iran.

The Iraqi and Russian move comes just a few days before Kim Jong II, the North Korean dictator, is due to visit Russia.

I believe the little horn of Daniel’s fourth beast will lead the ten toes of Daniel’s Image in a vicious Jihad surprise attack against Israel from the north. I believe the attack will come at some point in time from 2004 to 2008. However, I do not expect the forces of Russia, China, or North Korea to be directly involved in the initial attack. They will not come down with their forces until the final battle of Armageddon.
