Lion with Wings of an Eagle

In Daniel chapter 7, the prophet Daniel had a dream of four beasts which represent kingdoms in the end times.
"The first was like a lion and had the wings of an eagle. I kept looking until its wings were plucked, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man; a human mind also was given to it." - Daniel 7:4

I believe the lion represents England - the symbol of the British monarchy has a lion wearing a crown. The eagle wings represent America. Together they represent the Anglo-American alliance that has been in place since World War II. Wings extending out of a lion also represents how America was born out of England.

However, the wings are plucked, meaning America is taken out.

The fourth beast with ten horns in Daniel's dream, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong, reappears in Revelation chapter 13 with additional descriptions:

"Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and HIS MOUTH LIKE THE MOUTH OF A LION. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority." - Revelation 13:2

England, the lion, will become incorporated into the final Beast Kingdom as revealed in Revelation.
