BABYLON 605-538 BC - Lion
Daniel 2:38 - Thou art this head of Gold.
Daniel 7:3 - And four great 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 to stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.
MEDIA AND PERSIA 538-331 BC - Bear
Daniel 2:39 - And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee. Daniel 7:5 - 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. (3 ribs are Babylon, Egypt, Lydia)
GRECIA (GREECE) 331-168 BC - Leopard
Daniel 2:39 - and another third kingdom of brass which shall bear rule over all the earth.
Daniel 7:6 - 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. (Macadonia, Thrace, Syria, Egypt)
PAGAN ROME 168 BC-476 AD-Dreadful beast
Daniel 8:9 - And out of one of them came forth a little horn, which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the pleasant land. (South - Egypt 31BC; the East - Syria/Babylon 65BC; Pleasant land is Israel 63BC)
Daniel 7:7 - 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.
The interpretation of this is given in Daniel 7:23 & 24: Thus he said. The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. v24: And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

THE TEN KINGDOMS
356 AD Huns (Alamanni) Germany
378 AD Visigoth - Spain 377 AD Ostrogoths - Destroyed
407 AD Franks - French
407 AD Sueves - Portugal 407 AD Vandals - Destroyed
407 AD Bergundians - Switzerland
476 AD Saxons - England 476 AD Heruli - Destroyed
483 AD Lombards - Italy
These three kingdoms (Ostrogoths, Vandals, Heruli), were taken by Justinian (a Greek), Emperor of Constantinople, whose decree made the Bishop of Rome, supreme head of the Churches in 538 AD. (Incidentially, these three Germanic tribes or groups were non-trinitarian and would not submit to the Roman trinitarian belief system. There is absolutely no trace of them today.
Daniel 2:43 - 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. These are the ten horns or kingdoms, into which Rome was first divided, they are now mingled with the seed of men and do not cleave one to another.
Daniel 7, verse 8 - I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
The interpretation is found in verse 25:
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
Daniel 7:21, 22 - I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; v22 Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.
Daniel 7:13-14 - I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. v14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.
Daniel 2:44-45 - And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. v45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
DANIEL 8 - THE VISION OF THE RAM AND THE "HE" GOAT
RAM - MEDIA-PERSIA - two horns
v20 The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia.
"HE” ROUGH GOAT - GRECIA - great horn
v21 And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.
v22 Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.
In place of Alexander the Great who ruled Grecia but died in his prime:
Cassander - Greece and neighboring countries
Lysimachus - Asia Minor
Seleucus - Syria and Babylon
Ptolemy - Egypt
ROME - The Little Horn waxed exceedingly great
v23 And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. v24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. v25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. v26 And the vision of the evening and the morning which was told is true: wherefore shut thou up the vision; for it shall be for many days.
