The Beast of Revelation Revealed At Last!

Pakalert 29

By Walter Kazimir

A ‘beast’ with seven heads and ten horns; another beast that looks innocent as a lamb but ‘speaks as a dragon;’ a mysterious mark, and that renowned number, 666– what’s it all about? Probably no book has been as misused as the Bible, and no part of the Bible as mystifying and misunderstood as the Revelation. In particular (coincidentally?) one of the more misinterpreted parts of Revelation is Chapter 13– the source of the famous ‘beasts’ and ‘666,’ and so on. My contention is that the eschatological prophecies are deliberately obscure, but that they become increasingly transparent as we approach the ‘End Times’ they describe. The puzzling chapter 13 is the key to this comprehension. This essay investigates that portion of Revelation in the light of recent history.

In the interests of condensing a long discussion into a readable article, I have to assume that the reader has read (better yet studied) the book of Revelation, and moreover, understands that the book defines its strange imagery within its very pages for those who perceive. [For quick reference, the passage can be read here:  http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Rev%2013&version=NIV ]

The first eight verses describe a ‘beast’ that rises from the ‘sea,’ having ‘ten horns and seven heads,’ each horn crowned by a diadem, and each head showing ‘blasphemous names.’ We are told that ‘the dragon gave him his power, and throne, and great authority.’ Verse three is crucial, and many have stumbled on it: “I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast.” This amazing beast clearly becomes very powerful, and so arrogant as to blaspheme God, and to persecute His people.

Verses 11 to 18 then turn the spotlight on ‘another beast,’ who comes out of the earth, and who looks like a lamb, externally, but who speaks ‘like a dragon.’ This beast turns world attention on the first beast, and makes everyone worship it. It deceives everyone, and enforces the famous ‘mark’ on the hand or forehand that must be received in order to buy or sell. Chapter 13 ends with the infamous number, 666, ‘the number of the beast,’ that is said to somehow designate ‘a man.’

This short chapter would be pretty difficult to unlock on its own; but it so happens that chapter 17 seems to rehearse the same scenario, but from quite a different perspective. By combining the clues from the two chapters, a coherent picture emerges.

In chapter 17, John is shown a ‘harlot’ sitting on a ‘scarlet beast having seven heads and ten horns,’ clearly establishing a link with the earlier vision (of ch. 13). On her forehead is written the mysterious name ‘Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of the abominations of the Earth.’ She is described as drunk with the blood of the saints. In verse eight the beast is twice described as one that ‘was, and is not, and will come;’ a phrase that is repeated again in verse 11. That verse goes on to state that he is ‘also an eighth and is one of the seven.’ The last verses of chapter 17 describe how ‘ten kings’ will wage war against ‘the Lamb,’ but will be defeated. They turn against the harlot, and destroy her, and the last verse defines her as ‘the great city that reigns over the kings of the earth.’

Now; let’s start putting the clues together, letting scripture define its own terms as much as possible, and always bearing in mind that Revelation is a symbolic book. Most of the symbols used by John echo similar ones used 6 centuries earlier in the book of Daniel, which were explained in the text. Similarly, the angel/guides in Revelation give John the general meanings of the symbols in the visions. Summarizing very briefly, they are…

Beast = ‘kingdom,’ country, empire (Rev 17:10, Dan 7:17); Dragon = Satan, the Devil (Rev 12:9, 20:2); Sea = populous area; the ‘old world’ (Rev 17:15); Horns = kings, rulers (Dan 7:24); Heads = governments, nations; Diadem = sign of authority, rulership; Blasphemous — un-Godly; Tabernacle=the ‘church’, ‘saints’, who are spiritually residents of heaven; harlot = apostate faith community (Ezek 23:4); judgment = fate, punishment; waters = people, populations (Rev 17:15). Also, we should know that numbers are used symbolically in the Bible, where seven indicates perfection, completion; and ten stands for a complete or inclusive set. Many commentators, ancient and modern, have become hopelessly sidetracked because they do not accept the Bible’s own definitions, and try to impose their own! For example, many pundits have assumed that the beasts stand for people (e.g. the Pope); but the scriptures don’t say that; they tell us explicitly that they’re kingdoms (or nations, today).

Re-capping the main points of the text in plain language, we can see that:

  1. The text refers to a kingdom (nation) that had disappeared (was slain) at the time of John’s writing (set at about 90 AD), yet would reappear later in history;
  2. when this nation reappears it will cause people to be amazed;
  3. this nation is associated with the name of a man; and perhaps aspires to attain godly heights… their way.
  4. this nation was among a group of 7 that existed in a then-populous region– i.e. the Middle East– before it was extinguished;
  5. when it reappears, it will be in some ‘new’ form (different from the first appearance);
  6. this nation is associated with a false religion somehow;
  7. another nation appears later (after John’s day), that will be closely allied with the restored nation– it wasn’t one of the original 7; but when it arises in a less populous area, it will enforce homage to the restored nation;
  8. the ‘new nation’ will first appear benign (lamb-like), but will issue draconian edicts that will cause all other nations to ‘fall into line’ with it;
  9. the new nation is being directed by a false, apostate religion;
  10. there seems to be a blurring between ‘the woman’ as a church and as a ‘city,’ but in any case, there is a highly urbanized nation that exercises hegemony over all other nations;
  11. a set of ‘ten’ symbolic kingdoms arise in the end-times and they give their ‘power and authority’ to the restored kingdom for a brief time (ch. 17:12-13) until Jesus defeats them.

When you look at the facts laid out like this, while there may still be some fuzzy details, nonetheless, certain conclusions jump out as inescapable!

As soon as you mention ‘restored nation’ the obvious candidate that leaps out is ‘Israel’. Its name comes directly from ‘a man,’ their patriarch Jacob who was renamed Israel (Gen 32:28). Ancient Israel was one of a group of seven prominent kingdoms in the Middle East that includes Egypt, Assyria, Persia, Greece, Babylonia, and Rome. With their rejection of the Messiah, Israel’s cherished cultural religion, Judaism, became an antichristian blasphemy. As a nation, Israel has always aspired to ‘help’ God do things their way. From the taking of the Promised Land, to the Pharisaical plot to eliminate Jesus, the children of Israel preferred their deeds over God’s providence. The dramatic restoration of the Jewish homeland, named Israel, in the land of Palestine in 1948 was indeed seen as amazing, even miraculous, by the on-looking world. While many assumed that it must be due to God’s intervention, others who have investigated the creation of modern Israel, find that it was, instead, due to conniving plans dating back to the late 19th century (as Zionism, promoted by Herzl) and renewed following the First World War, by the Balfour Declaration. It was not God’s hand that was involved, but that of the Dragon, motivating Zionist agents behind the scenes of diplomacy.

The Bible had this insight long before any modern pundit could possibly discern the covert machinations that culminated in a restored Jewish state. However, this resuscitated nation is a pretender! Altho populated by Jews (progeny of Judah, one of Israel’s 12 sons), they call themselves Israel, in pretense of comprising the original, full 12 tribes of Jacob. Even IF all 12 tribes should be ‘represented’ in today’s Israel (as claimed), Jewish researchers have found that those known as Ashkenazi Jews (who engineered the takeover of Palestine) are actually descended from the Khazar people, who lived in the Caucasus region, and whose king made his whole nation convert to Judaism in the eighth century. And whereas ancient Israel, the state, occasionally worshipped the true God, the new nation follows a worldly, ultra-nationalist, pseudo-religion known as Zionism. Thus, ‘Israel’ has reappeared, but in a new, ersatz format, just as predicted. (See also, Rev 3:9 for another hint about Israel.)

Now, the second prominent nation, the later one that originates in a less populous region, seems to reach its zenith near the culmination of apocalyptic events. Again, on the evidence, there’s one nation that immediately springs to mind– the USA. Obviously, it didn’t exist at the time of John. And when it did appear, it arose in the ‘new world’, far from the populations of the old world. With its declaration of the rights and freedoms of individuals, particularly in regard to religious worship, the USA indeed looked lamb-like, and the two horns could symbolize the separation of church and state. Lately, there is no doubt about the dragon-like voice with which the US government has been throwing its weight around the world over the last 60 years or more. All nations of the world are compelled to heed the voice of the US government, whether they like it or not. In the vivid imagery of Revelation, this beast calls down fire from heaven, and deceives the Earth with the ‘signs’ he has the power to perform in front of the world (vs. 13-14). This made little sense– until the dropping of atomic bombs on Japan in 1945, and recapitulated in the ‘Shock and Awe’ invasion of Iraq. Now it reads as prescient indeed! Especially now that we know the extent to which deception was used to justify war.

The lobbying of the ‘religious right’ has become increasingly influential since the Reagan presidency of the 1980s. It is a profane, false Christianity influencing affairs in D.C., and through their warped interpretation of eschatology, they are closely linked to Zionist (‘Judaic’) interests (hence, ‘Judeo-Christianity’). That is the cursory analysis of ‘the harlot riding the beast.’ However, one could argue that the religious right is still, nominally, Christian, and not exactly what the prophecy points to. There exists a more covert connection between an abominable religion and the US administration. Summarizing a vast amount of evidence, there is undeniable evidence that the individuals who populate the US administration are linked to a panoply of occult practices and symbolism that can be traced back to ancient Babylon. These politicians congregate at the ‘Bohemian Grove’ (California) annually to indulge in bizarre, satanic rituals. That is their abominable, antichristian religion. It is well known that G.W. Bush, J.F. Kerry, and many other political figures are members of the Yale U. secret society called the ‘Skull and Bones.’ Many high-placed officials in Washington are associated with various occult/Masonic societies, as a little Internet research will attest. It could be sensibly argued that these ‘mystery cults’ of the elite more accurately represent the prostitute of the prophecy.

One can think of Zionism as a geo-political conspiracy for the ‘New World Order’ whose top names come largely from the ranks of Jews. In any case, it is indisputable that Washington is dominated by Zionist interests promoted by Israeli-American ‘dual-citizens.’ Leveraging these ‘inside assets,’ the Israeli government exerts pressure over the USA, particularly to do its dirty work in the Middle East. For decades the US delegation has used its veto in the Security Council of the United Nations to prevent censure of Israel. Lately, US foreign policy seems to be dictated by Tel Aviv. The First and Second Gulf Wars make little sense except when analyzed in the light of Israel using US military power to subdue its enemies. When Israel invaded Lebanon in 2006, and Gaza in 2008, deliberately destroying civilian infrastructure and killing non-combatants, the US waited until it was too late before expressing some measure of reservation over the Israeli depredations. While Israel and the USA make an uproar about supposed nuclear ambitions by Iran, they simply ignore the open secret that Israel already possesses nuclear weapons, and has the means to deploy them. Any nation fingered by Washington must jump and salute; however, Israel gets a free pass. In other words, the ‘second beast’– the USA– causes the rest of the world to worship the first beast– Israel. The trend is so marked that we can see that it’s a hallmark of the ‘New World Order.’

As many commentators have speculated, the 10 horns (of 17:12) probably refer to the countries of the European Union, that have had reservations about Israel’s policies towards the Palestinians, yet in the end, support the US-British backing of Israel. Once EU membership exceeded ten nations, some pundits abandoned this view. But they fail to note that ‘ten’ is simply a symbolic count for an inclusive set. And in any case, only ten or fewer countries have significant influence on EU foreign affairs. This view also  accords with Daniel’s vision of the statue in chapter 2, where the feet and toes (‘of iron mixed with clay’) have long been identified as the ‘revived Roman Empire’ embodied in the modern EU, with its strained mix of strong and feeble economies.

Many commentators have taken the picture of ‘buying and selling’ in chapter 13 quite literally, and have weaved some rather bizarre scenarios based on that view (e.g. micro-chips, bar-codes in people’s flesh). However, it’s not unreasonable to take the figure as symbolic… but, of what? Perhaps Proverbs 23:23 gives a clue: “Buy truth, and do not sell it, Get wisdom and instruction and understanding.” By means of so-called ‘anti-hate’ laws, it is becoming almost impossible for anyone to legitimately question Israeli policies and actions. Increasingly, no one in Western societies can dare openly criticize Israel without unleashing severe censure. It doesn’t take much imagination to foresee a time when any expression of reservation about Israel will result in prison or even death. And yet, how can we ‘get understanding’ if any criticism of Israel is crushed by so-called ‘anti-hate laws?’ Zechariah 11:4-6 is another passage that puts buying and selling in the context of duplicitous and predatory exploitation of one class by another, and God’s judgment on them. So, Rev 13:17 may be alluding to the fact that no one can speak truth about Israel and religion, but only mouth what the state permits.

Nonetheless, with the huge crises in the world banking system in recent years, it is equally possible that the ‘buying and selling’ may be literal. A little research will confirm that the global banking regime is largely in the hands of a cabal of Jews, and that they have, in fact, implemented a key strategy cited in the enigmatic ‘Protocols of Zion.’ That is, the world’s banks are under the management of a tiny elite, and all money is regarded as debt owed to them. Hence, they have total control over money, and with the advent of computerized records systems and banking cards, the banks can exert unparalleled monitoring of transactions (ie. buying and selling). Many pundits have postulated that we are heading for a system where micro-chips will replace tangible money, and the prophetic vision could be realized literally.

The one piece of the puzzle that escapes me at present is the question of the ‘image of the beast.’ While the other pieces fall into place fairly neatly, this one is far from obvious, at least at this time. I expect that it will become apparent as events unfold, but for the time being, the image is an open question. The NIV translates the passage as: “an image in honor of the beast.” The NASB and the KJV translation is: “an image to the beast.” In the Amplified Bible, the passage reads: “a statue (an image) in the likeness of the beast.” So, we have the later nation commanding the inhabitants of the earth to ‘make an image’ that represents the first (restored) nation in some manner.

My guess is that the construction of the image hasn’t yet happened, and when it does, we will be close to the end of the game. I predict that when the USA proposes some kind of ‘solution’ to the Middle East crisis that involves enforced homage to something that stands for (symbolizes, represents) the state of Israel, then we will recognize the fulfillment of this graphic prophecy. I expect that whatever it is, it will be a surprise to all, yet clear to those who remember scripture.

The other puzzle-piece is the ultimate uncovering of the false, apostate, mystic religion that masquerades as Judeo-Christianity, and that exercises covert control over the nations. It has long been realized that the Vatican, seat of Roman Catholic authority, is full of mystic symbolism derived from Egyptian and Babylonian sources. And since ‘Mystery Babylon’ is the ‘mother of ALL harlots,’ then all the Christian denominations are implicated, not just Roman Catholicism. Similarly, modern Judaism, via the Talmud, is heavily influenced by Kabbalah, a mystic school that dates back to the time of their captivity in ancient Babylon. Some investigators claim covert connections between the Vatican and Zionists, and although those theories are speculative, there’s no doubting the common lineage of their mystic symbolism, namely, Babylon.

Finally, I should anticipate one observation that some readers who are versed in history may raise. The predictive imagery of widespread, bloody persecution of true believers by an apostate church prevailing upon government to do its bidding, may ring familiar. Yes, it happened during the Dark Ages, when the official, Rome-based Church persecuted ‘heretics’ of all kinds, especially those who revered the Bible. However, it is possible for prophecy to have a primary, literal fulfillment, and a later, figurative reprise. Thus, the persecution of the first millennium could be repeated in its characteristics in this third millennium, with different actors but the same plot… and a much shorter time frame. Indeed, almost all exponents of eschatology have identified the (first) Beast (of Rev. 13) as the Roman Catholic Church or the European Union. But, the reader should see, now, that this can’t be: John repeats the phrase ‘that was, and is not, and will come’ for the purpose of making a point. That point should not be lost on us, latter day readers, who need it most! (Refer to item no. 1, above, in the summary of facts). Only Israel had existed prior to John’s last book (ca. 90 AD), had gone into oblivion in 70 AD, and ‘re-appeared’ two millennia later. This ‘beast’ therefore, cannot be the Roman church or the EU… nor some yet-to-emerge ‘Antichrist!’ With the acuity of hindsight, I think it is clear that the prophecies of Daniel focus on the history of the early Christian church, while those of Revelation move the spotlight to the End of the Age, and the geo-political turmoil of these times.

Conclusions

What I hope this analysis demonstrates is that without imposing a lot of exogenous, novel, dogmatic interpretations on the text, and allowing the scriptures to illuminate themselves, a sensible picture readily emerges… and, without the need of a Ph.D. in something or other to do so. And another important thing is that the Bible is not a book of science-fiction or technological predictions. The abstract scenes in Revelation are sketches of geo-political and geo-religious currents, not of helicopters, atomic weapons, and so on (as sensationally claimed by some American Evangelicals). And note that the whole panorama would not be comprehensible until the time when it is needed.

We must note that the text had to be written in such a way that an accurate prophecy can be presented without being so obvious that unscrupulous forces could suppress or alter it. And yet, the clues are skillfully encoded so that someone who has a reasonable understanding of history, and allows the scripture to explain itself, can gain a clear grasp of who the actors are, and what they are doing. Still, the picture only clarifies after the fact; i.e. after the forecast events actually begin, or as they unfold. In this process, it is astonishing to see how a book written millennia ago in a far-off land contains a description of the geo-political and religious situation that has unfolded over the last, mere half-century or so… within the lifetime of many who read this article. Friends, you can’t make this stuff up– no human mind could produce the bizarre vision-clips of Revelation, and use them to accurately predict world political events 2,000 years in the future!

Clearly, the prophecies are designed to demonstrate and reveal that God is real and supreme, and that we can’t determine what will happen next– it is entirely in His hands. Our job is just to trust and believe. I pray that sincere atheists will read this essay and have their eyes opened to the beauty of God’s scriptures. Remember, the Bible has been in a more or less final, ‘canonical’ state for many centuries. The prophecies survived intact to this day for the very purpose of demonstrating the genius behind them. No human could have achieved such a feat– that’s why this book is truly a Revelation!

    Excellent! I have studied Babylon and even did a video on the subject and you are dead on!
    This is revelatory, thank you for sharing.
    It was the missing piece in my puzzle… there is more to this but right now I am flooded with information and can’t properly express what I would like to but for now… Thank You and may God bless you with more :)

    This is a reasonable and rational explanation. I’ve often wondered about Rev 2:9, and Rev 3:9, and your historical insight shed light on what I’ve always suspected. Additionally, Ezekiel 37:21-28 specifically states that God Himself would gather His people that are scattered. The scriptures qualifies this regathering as taking place at the second coming since it says that “David will be King over the m”, verse 24. Clearly, this means that America and Britain will have nothing to do with the establishment of God’s people in their land.

    It is pure brainwashing, and a misapplication of scripture to suggest that the Holy and Righteous God would have anything to do with themess in the land of Palestine. Its actually an insult to His righteousness to suggest that Christians are to blindly bless wickedness and not call evil for what it really is. Shame on the Zionist and those who claim Zionist ideology are to be embraced to show solidary to the Old Testament scripture that says those who bless Israel will be blessed and cursed who curse it. Clearly, this was when God dwelt with Israel. Further, God is not under any obligation to even provide Israel with land. This promised was fulfilled by Joshua, and they lost the land by their own disobedience and rebellion against God…so why would god be obligated to give them land for bad behavior? They reject the Christ, the Son of God. Those who insist that Israel is entitled to land as a birthright do not understand scripture nor God’s justice.

    “You shall not make to you any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.”

    Have you ever thought that PERHAPS the “image” of the beast is the television?

    Thankyou for an excellent article.

    wild beast == the people
    harlot == government

    the harlot rides the wild beast. the beast sees the harlot and rends her asunder.

    the horns of the beast are religion. the heads of the beast are ethnicities.

    the number of the beast is 666.

    Jesus Christ is the Son of The Most High. The wicked will not see.

    Take a closer look at your surroundings there are organizatons today that parallel the description of the whore riding the beast with 7 heads and 10 horns.

    The USA fits the description of the whore riding the beast with 7 heads and 10 horns by control of the presidents through the United Nations (the beast). She makes war for profit and control over the maddening wine of her fornication.Black gold, the whole world is addicted to oil and it is in America where petroleum was first refined into gasoline.

    The woman you saw is that great city that rules over the kings of the earth. Rev 17:18
    New York City headquarters of the United Nations land purchased by Rockefeller Jr.
    Here is where the largest luciferian goddess of the Babylonians stands, Lady Liberty.

    There are 5 powerfull permanent members in the Security Council of the United Nations and soon to add a couple more permanent members possibly to make 7 , some demanding a permanent seat
    like Germany, Brasil, Japan, and India because of the large amounts of money they pitch in to support the many organizations it has created like the WTO, IMF, IAEA just to name a few. The WTO controls the food and has divided the world into 10 regions one is NAFTA their old logo were 10 horns their new logo is an inverted 666 it also looks like claws with a grip around the world.
    The IMF is a world bank that lends money and makes false promises to the 3rd world Countries(also the 10 horns) to take over their natural resourses, the list of lies and deception goes on.The UN and its organizations are directly responsible for the death of millions of people through out the whole world since their creation.

    USA (babylon, eagle with wings ), UK (mother of babylon, the lion), Russia (gog-magog, the bear, army from the north), China (the dragon paying for the wars) and France the leopard through the United Nations control the 7 continents, seas( “the 7 heads are 7 mountains on which the woman sits”. Rev 17:9), with peacekeepers that rape and kill and are responsible for using starvation as a weapon of war.” And I saw a beast coming out of the sea.It had 7 heads and 10 horns with 10 crowns in each horn and each head a blasphemous name”. Rev 13:1 Resolution 666 of the United Nations Security Counsil is just that using starvation as a weapon of war againts Iraq/Kuwat/Babylon.
    All these permanent countries are strong as IRON.

    There are 10 non-permanent members elected by the General Assembly of the United Nations that share the power with the 5 (IRON) permanent members, for 2 years their vote counts. We know this is just a put on as we saw the Bush administration go into Iraq with only 4 votes and not 9 out of the 15, 5 permanent and 10 non-permanent
    members. This clearly lets us see who is in control of the UN in other words who rides the United Nations. The fact that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and those responsible for killing millions for raging war are not behind bars
    for the rest of their lives is aggravating and scary. Taking down the World Trade Center
    is just a little example of what they are willing and capable of doing and getting away with to get the people to accept war much easier just like Pearl Harbor.

    But we know that iron and clay do not mix we also know that CORPORATE AMERICA has wiped out large populations in this weak Countries and continues to kill and slotter in the wars it rages and the weak or clay Countries hate CORPORATE AMERICA and its in their hearts to give back double as what she is dishing out to them. “As the toes were partly iron and partly clay so this kingdom (NATIONS) will be partly strong and partly brittel. And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay so the people will be a mixture and will not remain UNITED anymore than iron mixes with clay”.
    Daniel 2:42

    The Roman Catholic Church is responsible for todays false Christianity and religious confusion .Most if not all Christian religions are tentacles of the Roman Catholic Church that have MAKING MONEY at the top of their list in common and will never admit to the fact that they are responsible for the worship of statues, self proclaimed saints, made Mother of Christ into a goddess, stand between you and Christ and many more blasphemies. Some continue to promote war and the slotter continues at a greater scale than ever before “After that, in my vision at night I looked and there before me was a fourth beast terrifying and very powerfull. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left”.It was different from all the former beast, and it had 10 horns.Daniel 7:7

    No church will ever tell you any of the above or even want to go there.

      I’m more than a year late to the party, but someone will read this reply someday. AMERICA is the Beast, Israel is the Harlot. The Great Whore, the Harlot, the unfaithful bride is mentioned many many times in the Bible as Israel. The Beast she rides is USA. the Beast gives the woman power! USA does. Welp, just read Revelation and you’ll see. It all fits in. As of right now, this Beast is turning against the whore, just as prophecied.

    Daniel statue refers to: Babylon (Head), Medes/Persia (Silver), Greece (Bronze), Roman Empire (Iron) and the feet of clay/iron refer to the European Union (Patly weak & partly strong, check out their uncompleted Tower of babel EU parlaiment building (Cap Stone missing), proclaiming many nations, one voice when it was inaugurated, when God destroyed the original he proclaimed, Many Nations, Many voices), check out where the EU constitution was signed, notice the statue doof who is blessing the EU in the back ground.
    Anti-Christ Beast of Revelation refers to original Roman Empire of 10 kingdoms or areas/provinces as it where and out of them arose the Roman Catholic Church (Little Horn) and destroyed 3 of them, leaving 7 (Goths, Saxons etc, which today is the EU)
    Rome (Vatican) is a recognised independent country
    God`s beat 6 & 1 (Sabbath on a Saterday)
    Satans beat in inverse 1 & 6 (Sabbath on a Sunday)

    Rome was detroyed (wound and is recovered), EU stands on old Roman Empire today

    Roman Catholic Church, changes laws and times (10 commandments, 3, 4 and 9 split in 2) and gregorian calander and regards itself to be above God (can forgive sin), they are also guilty of spilling the blood of many peole (saints) during the crusades when they actively pursued the Protesters (Protestants) as heretics.
    Catholic church`s colours of scarlet & purple, they will still bring in the last colour of the old tabernacle curtain, which is blue, by passing a blue Sunday Law (refer blue laws definition)
    Every one wonders after the Beast (Pope & Church), they are also seeking 1 world religion under the Roman Catholic Church, they also have a direct link to the creation of Islam, Judaism, and Budddism bia the Knights Templars/Free masons, most church leaders (example head of methodist church) are free masons. Check out Illuminati, Rothschilds, Rockerfella , Council on Foreign relations, Bilderberg group, Albert Pike (Morals & Dogma), Black pope, Occult Signs and Pagan history (Ancient city of Alexandria, where the EU signing took place in a city hall (notice blue colour at signing), which was built on the ruins of the old temple of Zeus).

    Check out the pagan & free mason symbols within St Paul`s Cathedral (Baal Hadad, Compass & Set square , Pine cone, oblix etc)

    So much to say, so little time, check out DVD series, “God`s Final Call” by Ken Woodward, it brings everything together.

    looks like the dog and pony show wasn’t about debt reduction at all, but to continue the rape, except for one clause which makes obama dictator, which probably the reason for the “crisis” in the first place. interesting, that today is hitlers birthday as well as obama’s (so I heard, not completely sure of that comment. lyndon raruge (sp) is the one saying we have one day to stop this bill. I can’t holler loud enough.

    Interesting that you failed to mention Islam.Right now 7 nations are rising up against their governments in the mid east leading to a caliphate led by their Mahdi aka Antichrist and the false prophet Muhammad.Well that’s how I perceive it.

    The writer of this article is totally anti-Israel and anyone who is anti-Israel is an enemy of God! We are called to pray for the peace of Israel and anyone who blesses Israel will be blessed by God and anyone who curses Israel will be cursed. God’s word does not change. Israel will always remain as God’s chosen and a remnant of His beloved people will be called out. We Christians have been grafted in to this beloved family of God’s. Nothing has replaced God’s original plan for the Jewish people. He offers all people of all races and prior faiths to accept His death and resurrection and plan of the one and only way of salvation. Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord of all. Israel has taken the fall and has suffered and continues to be the brunt of all ridicule for all of earths woe’s and NEVER gets “a pass” . Are they perfect? You tell me what country has ever been without sin? But the Lord says a remnant will come out of Israel and there is where the feet of our Lord shall touch down at His second coming! He will defeat the enemies of Israel once and for all and they shall know that He is indeed their Messiah and God will set up His Kingdom there! You Walter Kazimir clearly suffer from severe anti semitism and you need to be very careful how you treat the apple of God’s eye! Our Jesus was a Jew and died a Jew and when He rose from the dead He was still a Jew!! Be careful what you say about the Jew! Just a warning. Do what you will with it but rest assured they are still His people-first the Jew then the gentiles!!

    The beast out of the sea can’t be the E.U. because Russia (the bear feet) isn’t in it, but all the same nations do belong to the United Nations. the 10 crowns belong to the U.N. security council where all the wars are dreamed up. look at N.A.T.O. insignia to see the man on the white horse that goes out to conquer. Mystery Babylon is the United states, it’s mark (the $1 bill) has on the back the pyrymid (symbolism of the first Babylon that wanted to build a stairway to the heavens (therefore the worship of the beast). If you will note all the countries we are at war with now are countries that refuse the dollar as their currency. (they refuse to worship the beast).
    Daniel was the example of what the future will be. Daniel stands on the sea to see a dark figure stand up. John looks back at history and what transpired and also looks to see the dark figure stand up, so knows that is the future. just like the beasts of Daniel line up to parts of the body of the man with the golden head, so do the beasts of revelation go with the parts of the reflection. look as the beast that is, but is not, but yet is, as an octopus, the dictionary says means a grasping organization, and you see the networking of this New World Order that has been put in place. The whore is the people in the banking industry that is cheating the people (the same sect of that where Jesus over turned the money changer tables).
    as for a 7 year tribulation period, I am told it comes from the 70 years put upon Israel to finish the transgression. The 1st temple was built and destroyed and then restored 70 years later and Israel was released from captivity. it has nothing to do with these end times. Jesus crushed that image of Daniel (he was the rock) but we look to Daniel for insight for these last days. When the head of the beast come to it’s full, Jesus will come again to crush the image. and yes we will have tribulation like no other, but the 7 years is falicy. Jesus said some will be put in prison, some beheaded, for the faith, and is that not being done? Right now we have a dictatorship in the U.S. May the most evil and richest take that post soon. thanks for the opportunity to share this with you

    Walter, I don’t agree with your conclusions which seem to condemn Israel as some sort of instigator of Evil if I am reading you right, the bible clearly declares Judeo-Christians as the “salt” of the earth, and the nation which rises falls and rises again could apply to other civilizations besides Israel as well. Your article also seems to combine anti-Christian sentiment and Christianity together as co conspirators in some coming of age of darkness which of course are two diametrically opposed beliefs. While it’s true some men hide behind religion to do evil I don’t agree that Christianity is the common denominator in this, in fact I would argue just the opposite, since nowhere in the Ten Commandments which are a code of conduct for Christians is there any reference to such conduct. Looking at what is happening in the world today I would disagree with your apparent conclusion that Judeo-Christianity is the conduit for the worlds destruction. the bible says “you are the salt of the earth, if you should lose your savor what chance has the rest of the world”.

    The best with 7 heads represents world powers: 1-Egypt 2-Asyria 3-Babylon 4-Medo Persia 5-Greece 6-Rome 7-Anglos American. The 10 horns represents the European Union or completeness. The beast that received the death stroke was the League of nations prior to world war 2. After world war 2 it became the United Nations. It is in itself an 8th King. Babylon the great is the world empire of false religion. The dragon is satan the devil. When the governments go against false religion that will be the start of the great tribulation. When the governments go against the true religion of Jehovah’s people that will be the start of the war of the great God Amighty called Armagedon. It will be a selective war. God’s war against the willfully wicked. It will not be fought with human armies.

    Thanks a lot for this analysis of Revelation, Mr Walter, sir. It does make a load of sense. This is the first time I’ve read something like this.

      You’re welcome, CJ; and thanks for your response. You are right that this is the first time this viewpoint has been made public (as far as I’ve been able to determine). A look at the comments in this article and others shows that many people spout off their opinions… but where is the evidence to support these spurious claims?
      The Bible can explain itself to the receptive mind… once we put aside our own presumptions and notions.

    Personally I do not believe the book of Revelations has much of any thing to do with Israel.People today have their eyes more on the state of Israel then on Jesus Christ. The majority of the Jewish people as their ancestors before them have rejected Jesus Christ as their personal savior. God clearly tells us the only door to salvation is through Jesus Christ the holy son of God. According to the word of God there is no salvation for neither the Jew or Muslim that has rejected Christ as their savior. The only blood that cleans humans of their sins is the sinless blood of Jesus Christ the holy son of God the father.
    The United States for many years has been connected at the hip with the popes of the Catholic Church. It is my belief the pope of Catholic church is the beast in the book of Revelations. I believe the power that spoke like a lamb was once the United States.As sure as the word of prophecy the United States over the course of years now speaks like a dragon.The United States has pushed in all directions and has became drunk on it misuse of power. I think the completion of one world order banking system is very near. According to the book of Revelations the time will come that no man will be able to buy nor sale least he have the name or the number of the beast. The Catholic Church changed God’s holy seventh day Sabbath (Saturday) to the first day of the week (Sunday) claiming they was give divine authority from God to do so. The later is a lie. The Catholic Church stand guilty in the books of heaven of unspeakable acts of blood shed of the Saints one being the great Martin Luther.The Catholic Church stands guilty in the books of heaven for protecting pedophile in their church for many years. The Catholic Church as we speak knowingly except blood money from politicians that support murder with in the womb.The Catholic Church is far from being in good standings with the God of heaven who is holy. The time will come that no man rich or poor,great,small,free or bond can buy nor sale least he have the name and number of the beast. The only way government can control all of the people of the world is to cut off their assets. I believe the book of Revelation is for people living in these times.I believe the time is coming that the governments of the world will issue to ever person a debit card. This will be the card in the hand John of Revelations spoke of. With that card will be issued a pin number. The pin number is stored in the human brain,John of Revelations speaks of the forehead. The people living on earth at that time will have a card in their hand and a pin number in their brain. The book of Revelations tells us every man free or bond,rich or poor,great or small can not buy nor sale with the the number/name of the beast.For years we have been conditioned to use the debit and credit cards which all have a pin number in order to operate. We are being conditioned to pay bills electronically.We all are being set up for the mark of the beast.I believe it will all come down over the true Sabbath of God the Seventy day of the week (Saturday) to the false Catholic chirch first day of the week sabbath (Sunday). The main stream churches have been working in the back ground for years to bring this to the forefront.People tend to forget this battle begun in heaven between Christ and Satan (Read Rev 1) the battle between Christ and Satan will end here on earth (Read Rev) God rained fire down from heaven on the earth and burnt all in it up. I believe it will boil down to the true Sabbath of God the Seventh day of the week(Saturday) and the man made false Sunday sabbath. The US government walks hand in hand with the pope of Catholic Church who both have their noses in to every thing under the sun.Refer to the smiley pictures of our modern day Presidents and the past popes of Rome. Note when John Paul dies millions and million from around the world gathered in Rome. Rome was so full their was no more standing room. The currant Pope told the people to please not come because their was no more room to accompany them.John tells us in Revelations all the world will wander after the beast. God’s true followers will not except the false sabbath of the Catholic Church even if it means their assets will be cut off because they will not except the governments one world order banking card and pin number which will be connected to the Catholic Church who is the beast in the book of Revelations. Satan has been allowed to mislead people in to thinking every person in the world will be tattooed or micro-chipped that is another one of Satan’s lies that people have bought in to.Just think of the world population it is in the billions.Think about running down all these people. The probation officers can not even keep track of convicts day to day for crying out loud.Bottom line the new world order banking system will cut off asset to the people and the only way they will be able to get their money is to agree to the terms set before them. Keep your eyes upon Jesus.Watch for the signs of the Second coming of Christ. Set your own house in order.I’m not real smart but I’m wise enough to know we are seeing today end time events and the Second coming of Christ our Lord is even at the door.

      I agree with you Jo-Anne, watch the DVD series by Ken Woodward (he past away in 2010 unfortunately at a very young age of 42/43) entitled “God`s final call” (12 DVd`s), really amazing facts put together in a logical manner and all Scripture based!

    In noticing that you have some reservatoions concerning the popular notions of “The Image of The beast”, I thought that you may find some thoughtful insights, as to it’s interpretation, presented in the rather non-orthodox study here- http://timutele.wordpress.com/2009/12/22/the-image-of-the-beast/

    Revelation is just that, a revelation of mans past history coming to a conclusion as defined in highly symbolic and colourful language. Human government have rightly been described as “Beasts” and have ruled as such. The fact that this beast had “seven heads” well depicts the seven world powers that have ruled over mankind from ancient Egypt the first world power, to the seventh beast the anglo-american world power. As the writer of the article well decribes the human family as being that “sea” of restless mankind out of which these world powers came from. Numbers in the Bible have significance, and the number of the beast is a “mans” number, and 666 just highlights how imperfect human rulership is. Seeing there are three six’s, three in the Bible is used for emphasis, and six falls short of seven, for seven is used to reflect heavenly perfection, so 666 to the third degree just emphasizes the failure of human rule. The force behind that beast is the “Dragon” well highlighting why no human rule has been successful, or ever will be. I can believe that. The “Harlot” sits on this beasts back, a harlot in ancient times was a temple prostitute, and what hooker has sat on the back of all empires and prostituted itself to the Kings of the earth like RELIGION, it has went to bed with all the world rulers and still does. The harlot well describes religions role with the “beast” they are well matched, no wonder mankind has suffered so much, with a hooker for a mother, and a crook for a father. For they have been the ruling entities that have and still do rule over us. I believe their time is up. The Harlot is to go first, religion is on its last, that old whore is just that, OLD, looking frayed around the edges, haggard, time to throw that old bag off our backs, she has been sitting there getting a free ride for long enough. Amen.

    The interpretation of the beast with 7 heads and 10 horns. The seven heads represent world powers. 1-Egypt 2-Assiria 3-Babylon 4-Medo Persia 5-Greece 6-Rome 7-Anglo American The beast that received a death stroke to it’s head and was healed was the League of Nations. During world war 11 it broke-up. In 1945 it reemerged as the United Nations the 8th world power. Babylon the great represents the entire 3 elements of the Babylonian System. 1-Political 2-Commercial 3-False Religion In ancient Babylon, archeologist found clay tablets where the money changers kept tract of the interest they charged their borrowers. We are living under the Babylonian debt based money system. It puts under compulsion, the small and great, the rich and the poor, and free and the slave to receive a mark in their right hand, that no one might or sell except he that has the mark. Here is where wisdom comes in. It is a mans number and the number is 666. In prohetic language the number 6 denotes an imperfect number. By repeating it 3 times, it adds emphases on to it. This mark is going to be introduced slowly by first introducing a paperless money system. The financial intitutions will issue every living person on the earth a combination debit and credit card with a computer chip in it that will have every individuals account number, and you will be able access all your information. You swipe the card on a computer scanner and all transactions will be done in cyber space. The IRS, a collection agency of the international finance will be able to automatically deduct income tax from your account. After they get people use to this system, they will implant a computer chip in your right hand or forehead. The 10 horns does not denote an exact number but represents completeness. It is the European Union which is now comprised of 20 nations after the fall of the former Soviet Union. The NWO order is one world government under international bankers. It is not God’s government. It is a counterfeit government under satan the devils system. It will exist for a short period of time and will go off into destruction. Too bad, too bad, Babylon the great has fallen. In one hour her riches have been devastated.

    Interesting analysis if you accept the Book of Revelations as prophecy. I have come to accept i as a mystical account of inner states of consciousness veiled in symbolic images as understood more fully to initiates of mystery schools of that era.

    Although I am non-Jewish, myself, I have studied the Kaballah enough to think it has no sinister implications at all, in spite of the prominence of the numbers 10 and 7,: the 10 sephiroth on the tree of life representating the ancient archetypal influences and stages of spiritual evolution and the 7 sacred planets of antiquity: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn. Jacob’s dream ladder is another representation of the mythical and symbolical Hebrew tree of life.

    It is claimed by esotericists that the Judeo/Christian scriptures each have 7 different possible interpretations, so perhaps prophecy is one of them. However, many of the characters, animals and humans, cities and countries, stories and events featured in the Bible do not refer to literal people and places but are covers for states of consciousness and secret knowledge deliberately hidden from the eyes of the unevolved and the profane.

      For anyone who missed it, here’s how the Book of Revelation (singular) opens:
      “1 The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, 2 who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. 3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.”

      There is no ‘IF’ involved here! The Revelation IS prophecy. And note, blessed are those who take it to heart– who accept it for what it really is, and who don’t try to make it into something else. I think most readers are astute enough to recognize nonsense when they see it… and the use of nonsensical but elaborately-stated words to create disinformation and distraction from the PLAIN TRUTH of God’s scriptures.
