"Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel."

"And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion's whelp: he shall leap from Bashan."

"In those days there was no king in Israel: and in those days the tribe of the Danites sought them an inheritance to dwell in; for unto that day all their inheritance had not fallen unto them among the tribes of Israel."

"Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path, that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward."

“Dan shall judge his people, as one of the tribes of Israel.”

DAN: #1835 Dan {Dawn} judge. From #1777 diyn {deen} a straight course, to sail directly. To plead the cause, content, execute, to act as a judge, minister judgment, requite, vindicate, govern, strive, to be at strife, quarrel. All these things reflect the pattern for Dan's people, which shows up in more modern times as the nations of Germany and Denmark.

            Most people remember Germany by the fascism state, which took place under Hitler. Fascism is a system of government that has ruthless and strict social and economic controls over its people. Fascism is generally always headed by a dictator on one hell of an ego trip. This isn't good for the nation or the people, and usually ends in war and much bloodshed. 'Dan' seems to go to extremes whenever he does things – to the point of being radical.

            “And of Dan he said, Dan is a lion's whelp: he shall leap from Bashan.” Bashan: #1316, means the strong 'fruitful' ones, a 'whelp' is a lion cub. Bashan was the fertile area of land given to the half-tribe of Manasseh. Manasseh was represented by England from 927-1707 CE.

            How did 'Dan' leap from Manasseh's territory? Well, I was just about to tell you, so get ready to set another good cookie. You see, in the summer of 1015 CE, Canute the Great, a son of a Danish King, set sail with his fleet of 200 long-ships, and an army of around 10,000 men. Canute was a Great 'Danite' and boosted about his large troop of Vikings warriors that were simply fearless. A gruesome warfare with England [Manasseh] took place for a period of fourteen months. This brutal war ended in 1016 with the agreement that England was to be divided between Denmark's Canute and England's Edmund Ironside, but as luck would have it, Edmund died on November 30, 1016, leaving England united under Danish rule, which continued until the death of Canute's son, Harthacanute in 1042. Thereafter, the kingdom of Manasseh - England, that is, was once again independent. There could have been other times, but this is the one I am using here. Canute liked to be known as the 'king of Christendom'.

            Speaking of Christianity, the 'unHoly Roman Empire' was a German-state Empire from 843-1806 CE. These ten 'toes', I mean Germanic nations, emerged out of the eastern part of the Carolingian Empire. This situation with the unHoly Roman Empire ‘beast’ lasted until Napoleon put an end to it in 1806. Is it any wonder that Dan's name was omitted from the list of tribes in the book of Revelation? This unHoly Roman Empire was probably the evilest thing that ever existed on the face of the earth bar none. Dan, what were you thinking – talk about a devilish beast, listen to this:

            “Dan shall be a serpent by the way, an adder in the path that biteth the horse heels, so that his rider shall fall backward.” Both Denmark and Germany have had very power armies in the past, but the role Germany played throughout the Dark Ages, and not forgetting the years from 1930-1945, is inexcusable to say the least. For shame. Dan needs to redeem himself for sure. There I go judging Dan, must be a couple family lines from the tribe of Dan running through my veins.

            Dan the Serpent: The serpent and the swastika are said to be siblings; the serpent as the darker side of power in the Universe, the swastika represents that force in motion.

            Gen 30:6 And Rachel said, God hath judged me, and hath also heard my voice, and hath given me a son: therefore she called his name Dan, so the name ‘Dan’ means, to judge.

            Dan as the judge: “Germany's judiciary independence and extensive responsibilities reflect the importance of the rule of law in the German system of government. Principles of Roman law form the basis of the German judicial system and define a system of justice that differs fundamentally from the common law system, in which courts rely on precedents from prior cases. In Germany, courts look to a comprehensive system of legal codes. The codes delineate somewhat abstract legal principles, and judges must decide specific cases based on those standards. Given the importance of complex legal codes, judges must be particularly well trained. Indeed, judges are not chosen from the field of practicing lawyers. Rather, they follow a distinct career path. At the end of their legal education at university, all law students must pass a state examination before they can continue on to an apprenticeship that provides them with broad training in the legal profession over two years. They then must pass a second state examination that qualifies them to practice law. At that point, the individual can choose either to be a lawyer or to enter the judiciary. Judicial candidates start working at courts immediately, however they are subjected to a probationary period of up to four years before being appointed as judges for lifetime”.  Germany puts a high emphasis on its judicial system.

Dan dares to judge the Vatican: Germany is the home of the Reformation launched by Martin Luther in the early 16th century. The Reformation began in Germany when Luther stood in defiance of the Pope. Germany has always been instrumental in theological movements beginning during the 'unHoly' Roman Empire and all up through Christianity.

            Again Dan judges: In terms of ideology, Nazism combines racism, nationalism, anti-semitism [actually that word ‘anti-semitism’ should be changed to ‘anti-judaism’, and whether you want to admit it or not, Jesus was an ‘anti-semitic’], and anti-communism. The Nazis believed in the superiority of an Aryan master race [so does the Bible], advocated individual leadership in a strong, centralized government, and claimed to be defending Germany and the entire Western world against communism and Jewish subversion.

            Dan is the fifth son of Jacob. His mother was Bilhah, Rachel's handmaid. The name 'Bilhah' means 'troubled.' Bilhah must have been deeply troubled when Dan played his pattern to the hilt.

            'God hath judged me', Hebrew 'dananni'. The blessing pronounced on him by his father was, 'Dan shall judge his people', and this pattern was also seen in the judgeship of Samson, who was from the tribe of Dan, which today would be Germanic.

The territory of Dan was quite large, and today Dan's territory is large as well. 'Arise,' they said, 'be not slothful to go, and to possess the land,' for it is 'a place where there is no want of any thing that is in the Earth' [Judg. 18:10]. On receiving this report, 600 Danites girded on their weapons of war, and taking with them their wives and children, marched to the foot of Hermon, and fought against Leshem, and then took it from the Sidonians, and dwelt therein. They then changed the name of the conquered town to Dan. This new city of Dan became to them a new home, and was wont to be spoken of as the northern limit of Palestine, the length of which came to be denoted by the expression 'from Dan to Beersheba', i.e., about 144 miles. Seems that if Dan wanted something, 'he' just reached out and took it, judging that it should be his to take, and rightly so.

            Regarding the tribe of Dan: “But like Lot, under a similar temptation, they seem to have succumbed to the evil influences around them and to have sunk down into a condition of semi-heathenism from which they never emerged. The mounds of ruins, which mark the site of the city, show that it covered a considerable extent of ground. But, there remains no record of any noble deed wrought by this degenerate tribe. Their name disappears from the roll-book of the natural and the spiritual Israel.” Source: Manning's “Those Holy Fields”. This is one man’s opinion, but I say, ‘Dan had a specific role to play’, as many of us do.

            The above is referring to the tribe of Dan, and because this tribe was not mentioned among the other tribes in the book of Revelation, it is supposed by some, that this was not an oversight, but rather, an intentional omission because Dan had 'sunk to a condition of semi-heathenism'. The pattern of Dan is reflected in the nation of Germany and Denmark. Germany exercised all the negative traits of Dan, while Denmark shines with the positive role.

            Germany was a great European power in the 19th century, and may still have been a leading industrial national, had Stalin [Russia – Gad] not have destroyed private enterprise in Eastern Germany.
