this can only be a satanic kingdom, where satan gives his power to it

I do not believe the human Empires as listed Babylon, Media Persia, Greek and Rome are the kingdoms that rise from the earth, but I do believe a false religion that combines teachings from each previous false religion, rises from each empire

Babel was the foundation of the first, thus Babylon for which it gets its name is the first the head of Gold
I'm sorry I can't see what you mean here? Can you explain that about the religions I'm not sure I share that view?

I am almost one hundred percent sure that the coming Beast Empire will be an Islamic Empire/Caliphate. Muhammed's religion did'nt appear until after year 600 AC. I have done extensive research of the islamic religion and their escatology. And it's absolutely stunning to see how much their messiah "Mahdi" resembles our Antichrist and their Jesus "Isa" resembles our false prophet. Their way of executing by beheading, their ambitions to create a global religious empire, their belief that christ is just a prophet, not the son of God makes up the criteria for who antichrist is. Their hate towards Mystery Babylon, etcetera.. All adds up. The beast must be a coming Islamic Empire.
You are on the right track. Several high profile teachers like John MacArthur have reconsidered their views on the origin of these end-time beast.
A ten nation Islamic empire is coming and it could happen as a result of the rebellion or apostasy now occurring in the Arab/Islamic world. There could be more than one ten nation empire coming...the king of the north and the king of the south....not sure. I am convinced that the two horned beast represents the Sunni and Shia sects of Islam. In response to the OP I would say that most do make the connection that the fifth kingdom is the millennial kingdom of God. But then again I have a different view of Daniel 2 and 7 so I would actually say it's actually the 6th kingdom mentioned in the great statue. The legs of iron are the fourth past kingdom and the iron and clay are the people of the coming ten nation Islamic Empire.

One of the most detrimental things to a Christian's understanding of bible prophecy is their unwillingness to consider other views and change their minds.

really so when the bible says God sits on His throne you don't believe He actually has a throne?

Psalms 47:8
God reigns over the nations;
God sits on His holy throne.

actually the bible teaches what His kingdom is like in human terms, since the spiritual is unseen to us in this present day, does in no way mean it doesn't really exist
Throne as in a fancy chair? do chairs have a voice ?
Rev_19:5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.


A 'chair " as a head of the river of life?
Rev_22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

A throne as a 'place' of majesty and honor would be where ever He is .
Revelation 5:1 ¶And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.

Sat does mean to sit but comes from these two very different root words.

From κατά (G2596), and hemai (to sit, akin to the base of ἑδραῖος (G1476))

It's hard to tell just what God's throne is like. Maybe there is...and maybe there isn't a chair! I've always pictured God as sitting on one. But you never know!
