We are coming to the end of the age and we need to be able to recognise what it is going to look like. The kings of the East the USA or the seventh head of the Mystery Babylon beast and of course Europe. Much has been written about Europe and a revived Roman Empire and most of it is nonsense. There a lot of variations out there from people who have every complex reasoning to get to their conclusions. Nearly all these explanations have their origins from the eighteen hundred’s. They had to extrapolate out from long ago. Now that we are at the very door and much of the end is right in front of us let’s look at what we can see now. Everything change’s a bit. I am not going to be complicated I am just going to use Revelations and Daniel 7. Before we get into the heart of this article I want to establish a few things that will make understanding easier. What are the beasts the heads and the horn’s? If we can understand these we can see what is happening around us. When the word talks about horns it is talking about people. When it talks about heads it is talking about counties or Kingdoms and if you look closely at most verses heads and horns are quite clear. When it is talking about beasts it is talking about Demonic angels or spiritual being’s. These beings are given specific authorities and have control over cosmic geography. There is a lot more about this in Revelations the repeated story.
Firstly, we will start with Rev 12 with the woman clothed with the sun and the moon at her feet and the great red dragon. When Jesus first appeared, there was a star that the wise men saw and followed. God always starts these things with a sign in the heavens. Now who is this woman? The only thing I have found that does not give contradictions is the world or Earth. The earth is clothed with the sun and has the moon at her feet. The earth is about to give birth to a son or the second coming of Jesus is about to happen. There will be a sign in the heavens that match this in September 2017. If this timing is the same as when Christ was born, then this new beast will arise within two years. When Herod wanted to kill the baby Jesus he killed all children two years old and younger. He obtained the time period from the answers that he got from the wise men. Hence the wise men saw the sign in the heavens two years before Jesus's birth. Not that I am saying this is the sign but there is a sign then that matches Rev 12 very well. However, the sign for the red dragon is more obscure. The great dragon Draco a constellation of stars is always in the northern sky's but is at its most prominent late August and September. Its sit low in the sky and could be thought of as waiting for the woman's child. I suspect that it being red has to do with its look in the sky, being low in the sky. The beast of Rev 17 or the scarlet beast of Rev 17 is to do with Babylon and is already in existence so cannot be rising.. Draco has a long tail and a third of the stars in heaven sit below it at that time of year. The great red dragon only gets one mention in the Bible and that is here. Satan is never called this. It also has the same picture form as the beast from Revelation 13 except for one important point. It has seven heads and ten horns but only seven diadems or crowns. Later it is describes as ten horn and ten crowns. When the beast first appears it is not formally the beast of Rev 13. It has the seven nations and their leaders have crown but three others acting in a leadership roll without crowns. This is like the present European Union with a President of the European Council a President of the European Commission and a President of the European Bank. We can see this now but it would have been hard to grasp one hundred and fifty years ago.
Let’s move on to Rev 13 "And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns" The last three horns are given crowns and the Beast has formally arrived. Now to get a better understanding of this beast I am going to Daniel 7 for help. Why Daniel 7 and the beasts that are pictured here? In Daniel 11 and 12 it reads 11“I looked then because of the sound of the great words that the horn was speaking. And as I looked, the beast was killed, and its body destroyed and given over to be burned with fire. 12 As for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away, but their lives were prolonged for a season and a time. This says clearly that the first three beasts live on after the destruction of the forth beast. They may arise in order but the exist together. They must be all in existence now.
Daniel 7 there is a description of beasts that come out of the sea with the sea being a important cross reference so we do not get confused with other beasts. Daniel declares "And four great beasts came up out of the sea, different from one another. The first was like a lion and had eagles’ wings. Then as I looked its wings were plucked off, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man, and the mind of a man was given to it. And behold, another beast, a second one, like a bear. It was raised up on one side. It had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth; and it was told, ‘Arise, devour much flesh.’ After this I looked, and behold, another, like a leopard, with four wings of a bird on its back. And the beast had four heads, and dominion was given to it." The first three beasts we are told in Daniel 7;11 are going to live on after the forth beast is killed. These beasts cannot be Babylon, Medes and Persians and Greece. They did not live on they have no historical connects with these animals and Babylon already existed. So there are three beasts that arise out of the sea. Notice they come out of the sea. The first beast- was like a lion and had eagles’ wings. Then as I looked its wings were plucked off, and it was lifted from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man, and the mind of a man was given to it. Eagles wings are the USA and Lion the UK. That has been very much the relationship of these countries. The Lion standing on two feet is on the British flag. Not only the British flag but on many countries flags of the British Commonwealth. This beast gives Briton its own cosmic geography. (Why Britain never used the Euro.) The beast itself has a spiritual authority. It is never going to be fully involved in the EU which is the third beast.
The second beast- And behold, another beast, a second one, like a bear. It was raised up on one side. (most of the population on one side) It had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth (Kerensky, Trotsky and Lenin); and it was told, ‘Arise, devour much flesh. Russia is the bear. It is to devour much flesh. During ww2 around 50 million people died from military action and half of them were Soviet or caused by Soviet forces. Also, untold millions killed by Stalin.
Third beast- After this I looked, and behold, another, like a leopard, with four wings of a bird on its back. And the beast had four heads, and dominion was given to it. This beast is a union of six countries. Four heads and two pairs of wings. That is Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, and West Germany signing the Treaty of Rome in 1957. This was the beginning of the EU. The Treaty of Rome developed into the EU of today. This is the third beast and Germany is the biggest economy and the German war machine has always been associated with the name of big cats. Tiger and Panther tanks of WW2 and the current tank the Leopard. The German concept of blitzkrieg is that of a Leopard. Dominion was given to it is a description of the wider EU. Because it is a spiritual dominion countries like Greece and Catalan of Spain will not be able to escape. Today we are seeing the demise of the third beast. Britex, Italy’s problem and the coming elections in Holland and France will result in the next beast
The forth beast. Daniels description is "After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns." Revelations 13 is far more informative. "And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads. And the beast that I saw was like a leopard; its feet were like a bear and its mouth was like a lion’s mouth." This is a combination of the first three beasts of Daniel 1 that is why it is different. If heads are countries and horns are people, then it is not going to be a ten nation group but a seven nation group. With three people managing it. The main person will be British because he is the spokesperson. That is the mouth of the beast was like a lion’s mouth.
What countries make up the Beast of Rev 13? looks like a leopard (Germany/France) feet like a bear (Russia) and the mouth of a lion (England). One of its head seems to have a mortal wound that was healed (West/East Germany). It is given the power (spiritual) and the throne (physical). The Throne of Satan is in Munich Germany. The Seat of Satan and the Pergamum temple were moved to Munich in the eighteen eighties. I put France with Germany because of the Holy Roman Empire connection. For more understanding on the Holy Roman Empire there are many good resources and interesting. This beast lasts forty-two months. It's behaviour is very wicked towards the saints and is already making war on the saints before the Antichrist arrives. It well likely cause the physical destruction of the USA. We might know it is evil but the world and many Christians will turn to it for stability and peace that it promises. When the 144000 point out it is evil they will be hated. They cannot touch them but they will go after the saints. The Beast rises out of the sea and is the beast being talked about when the sea is mentioned. This well be a certain sign that when the three leaders fall and get replaced by two. It has authority for 1260 days in this form. The Beast will still have authority but the Anti-Christ and the False Prophet will arise and three horns will fall. They will then make the beast super strong. The saints are then given into his hands for three and a half years.
It says who can fight against the beast and if it were Europe then the answer would be USA, Russia and China. The beast can't be Europe alone. This beast is different because it's three beasts combining to form a forth beast. The first three beasts of Daniel 7 have the same characteristics as the single beast arising in this chapter of Revelations.
The Antichrist must come out of these European counties. The Antichrist and the False Prophet are not historical figures so it is a bit hard to work it out. The chances of either person being the Pope is next to zero. Not to say that the last Pope will not be incredibly wicked. The chances that they are currently minor politicians in Europe are highly likely. What is this Antichrist. He is the opposite to Jesus. Jesus is God come down to earth in Physical form. This Antichrist will be Satan incarnate. Probably a copy of what Jesus did. Because he has the demonic nature of Satan he gets to be called a beast. The other beasts are actual powerful demonic beings. The number 666 being that of the beast but also a man. It is not two individuals but one individual with the nature of a man and that of Satan. An Antichrist. The beast cannot be completely Satan because Satan is cast into the bottomless pit while the Beast from the earth ( Antichrist) get thrown into the lake of fire.
There is a head that has been wounded. This means that it is a nation and not a person. This wound is done by the sword or by war. This mortal wound is healed. The only nation that fits this is East/West Germany. The wound is mentioned three times 13-3 13-12 13-14. Twice when talking about the beast from the earth. This suggests that there is a close tie between the Antichrist and Germany. One of the names of the Antichrist is the Assyrian. The people who try to trace the movement of the nations through linguistics place Assyria in Germany. The throne of Satan is also in Germany. The Antichrist is going to be German.
The last beast will only be a seven nation union and not the commonly thought ten. It will consist of Great Briton, Russia, France, Italy, Germany and two others. These two should be Holland and Belgium but could be someone completely different. Any country from the old Soviet Union or the British Commonwealth and current EU are eligible.
It will have the ten horn form for three and a half years. Then the Antichrist and the False Prophet will arise and the Beast will have a nine horn form. The tribulation will begin when the Antichrist gets here. The ten horns will be putting in place all the things that the Antichrist will need to kill the 100 million saints. In fact most of it is in place right now. The mark of the Beast will not be done by chipping people as this requires a certain technological level that world wide is hundreds of years away if ever. It will be done using cell phones with money being transfer using your smart phone abilities and fingerprints and facial recognition. If you travel the world you well find cell phone coverage everywhere. They could introduce the system within three months of wanting to proceed. I hope I am not going to give you nightmares by what I am pointing out because I want to do that with my next blog "The 100 million before the throne".
