Matthew 23:12 KJVS
“And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.”
The Lion, during the Five Month Long Hour of Temptation will be the three Christian nations. The Third who are the Christians.
Daniel 7:2-4 KJVS
“Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.  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 stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.”
The Lion will have Eagles Wings and those wings will be plucked .
The Christian nations become the Lion at the Woe of the Fifth Trump. ( the beginning of the Five Month Long Hour of Temptation ) when the Four Winds are released.
Those Christian nations I believe are:
Epriam =The British commonwealth (after Brexit.)
Manasseh= United States,
Judah = Germany leader of the E.U.
The Prideful Lion.
Will they have Pride in Our Heavenly Father and be patient, or they hold to their own foolish pride? It is my opinion that the Prideful Lion will cause the Deadly Head wound by rebelling against that Political Beast that will rise from the sea of people.
The Political Beast
Daniel 7:2-7 KJVS
“Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.  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 stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.  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.  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.  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 Lion (Three Christian Nations) will stand up against this Political Beast of their own pride ,causing the Deadly Head wound towards the middle of the Five Month Period (Hour of Temptation,) possibly thinking they are justified in standing up against it.
Let’s look this same beast that is spoken about in Daniel 7 verses 1 -7, here in Revelation Chapter 13.
Revelation 13:1-2 KJVS
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.  And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.”
In Bullingers commentary of book of Revelation, verse 1 of Chapter 13 should say the Dragon stood upon the Sand of the Sea.
And We know the Sand of the Sea are the Christians( Genesis Chapter 22 verse 17.)
This Political Beast will have a mouth of a Lion, and that mouth is made up of the Prideful Lion which is the three Christian Nations, and the Dragon(Satan) will give power to that beast.
Again this Beast is the same Beast spoken in Daniel 7 verse 1 through 7. The Political beast includes Daniel’s 4th beast which is exclusively supernatural.
Daniel 7:7 KJVS “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.”
Satan( Dragon) and his 7000 fallen angels along with 10 horns( 10 Supernatural kings) are Daniels Fourth Beast that will complete the One World Political Beast.
From A Political Beast to A Religious Beast
Revelation 13:3 KJVS
“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.”
The Seven Heads are the Seven Mountains.
Revelation 17:9 KJVS
“And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”
One of the heads I believe represents the Third who are Christians ( the Lion,) which are the three Christian nations spoken about above rebelling against the Political system(Beast) towards the middle of the Five Month period(Hour of Temptation.) Towards the end of the Woe of the Fifth Trump they will make a stand . There stand will then bring upon the Woe of the Sixth Trump.
The Political Beast will have a mouth of a Lion during the first half hour(two and a half months) of the Five Month Long Hour of Temptation, and will you see that mouth change to the Dragons mouth at 666( in the middle of Five Month Long Hour of Temptation ) after the Deadly Head wound. This is the Fifth Vial that is poured on the SEAT of the Political Beast that will bring upon the Woe of the Sixth Trump.
Revelation 16:10-11 KJVS
“And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,  And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.”
After the Head Wound( Fifth Vial is poured) the kingdom will be full of Darkness(666)
The Deadly Head wound is healed at 666( Woe of the Sixth Trump.) The Political Beast will turn to a Religious Beast.
Revelation 13:4-5 KJVS
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?  And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto himto continue forty and two months.”
The Beast Is Given A Different Mouth.
That mouth will change to Satan( the Dragon ) and his role of Antichrist at 666, the middle of the Five month period.
The Lion( the Third of Christians)will end up worshiping Satan when he appears as The false Christ which is the second beast that rises from the earth.
Revelation 13:11-12 KJVS
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.  And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”
The Beast turns from a Political Beast to a Religious Beast. The Lion (three Christian Nations) will take part in the Apostacy and will worship this Beast that will look like The Lamb, but will speak as a Dragon. The Prideful Lion will have their wings plucked and will be consumed, and they will walk in Darkness.
The Prideful Lion will be cut down by a Sword.
Revelation 13:6-10 KJVS
“And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.  If any man have an ear, let him hear.  He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.”
The Prideful Lion will raise its own Sword (Head Wound), and they will be cut down by a Sword( Satan and his appearance as the Antichrist.)
Ecclesiastes 7:8 KJVS Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof: and the patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
The Prideful lion.
