Does the United Nations have “Teeth”? The Secretary-General thinks it needs some.
In Daniel chapter 7 Daniel talks about the great iron teeth on the future “exceedingly strong, dreadful and terrible fourth beast” that will take control over the world.
- 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.

- Daniel 7:19 Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth were of iron, and his nails of brass; which devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet;
On Sept 19. 2021 Secretary-General António Guterres related the United Nations to an institution that has NO teeth. See below link:
If we look at Daniel chapter 7 it’s obvious that the fourth beast has to be some “future” organization that could be used to bring about control over the whole world. Let’s brainstorm on current organizations that could possibly fit this description.
Do some research. You will find there is only one that makes sense, The United Nations.
Daniel 8:25 says the following about the antichrist that will appear sometime in the future: “25 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:…”
The antichrist, the leader of this “fourth beast” will “by peace shall destroy many” The United Nations is the only global body that represents all countries in the world in relation to peace and safety.
Let’s just assume for a bit that this fourth beast is the United Nations in some future state.
There are 6 principle organs of the United Nations, the General Assembly, the Security Council, the Economic and Social Council, the Secretariat, the International Court of Justice, and the Trusteeship Council.
If you go to the United Nations System link below you will see that the Peacebuilding Commission advises only the General Assembly and the Security Council on issues relating to peace. Follow the workflow lines.
There is a statue in Daniel chapter 2 that I think represents the end time beast organization as well.
31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.
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.
34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.
Notice the legs of iron in verse 33 and the feet part of iron and part of clay. There are two legs of iron possibly representing the General Assembly and the Security Council of the UN.
The feet, representing the Security Council are mixed partly with clay and part of iron. Hence the permanent members (strong-iron) of the Security Council and the non-permanent members (non-strong-clay).
Feet have 10 toes and there are 5 permanent members and 5 regional representations in the “non-permanent” Security Council. (See below) 1 from the Western European and Others Group, 2 Latin American and Caribbean Group, 3 Eastern European Group, 4 Asia-Pacific Group and 5 African Group.
Ten toes: Ten representations of the only organization that has the capacity to be the catalyst for the antichrist to control the world.
