On the cover … John's

On the cover … John's vision of the 4th and the last beast - Revelation 13 NLT DESCRIPTION of the Beast from the Sea 1 Then I saw a beast (Political/Super power; Kingdom or Nation) rising up out of the sea (People or Densely populated area). It had seven heads and ten horns (King/Kingdoms; Power), with ten crowns on its horns. And written on each head were names that blasphemed God. (Blasphemy: Claiming to be God on earth or to forgive sin) 2 This beast looked like a leopard, but it had the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion! And the dragon (Satan) gave the beast his own power and throne and great authority. 3 I saw that one of the heads of the beast seemed wounded beyond recovery—but the fatal wound was healed! The whole world marvelled at this miracle and gave allegiance to the beast. 4 They worshiped (bow down) the dragon (Satan) for giving the beast such power, and they also worshiped the beast (Political/ super power; Kingdom or Nation). “Who is as great as the beast?” they exclaimed. “Who is able to fight against him?” 5 Then the beast was allowed to speak great blasphemies against God. And He was given authority to do whatever He wanted for forty-two months (time, times, half a time equalling to 1260 years). 6 And He spoke terrible words of blasphemy against God, slandering his name and his dwelling—that is, those who dwell in heaven. 7 And the beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And He was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation. 8 And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered before the world was made. - The Papacy, this beast carries the same detail as the 4 th beast in Daniel’s vision 9 Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand. 10 Anyone who is destined for prison will be taken to prison. Anyone destined to die by the sword will die by the sword (Bible or Civil Power). This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful. Note: During Napoleon’s Protestantism, the Pope was held imprisoned and later died in exile. The power was then taken away from the Papacy. It was wounded but not killed. While the Papacy (beast) was on its way down, John talks of another beast that comes out of the earth. Therefore, this new beast rises up in the late 1700 as the Papacy lost its power in 1798AD. The Prophecy of the rising of all the other kingdoms showed that all the other kingdoms taking over rose from the west. Therefore, this beast will also rise up from the western hemisphere of the New World DESCRIPTION of the Beast from the Land 11 Then I saw another beast (Political/Super Power; kingdom or nation) come up out of the earth (Sparsely populated Area). He had two horns (King/Kingdoms; power or principle) like those of a lamb (Christ), but He spoke with the voice of a dragon (Satan). Note: Two principles of Christ are summarised by the two first and most important commandments – Matthew 22:37-40. Love the Lord your God … & Love thy neighbour ... They are a duty of man to God (Church) and a duty of man to man (State/Civil duty). This new beast (Power) understands these two and the separation thereof. 28

On the cover … The United States of America. A Christian based Superpower that rises up in the late 1700, from the sparsely populated area (earth) of the western hemisphere in the new world, acknowledges Church and state and the separation thereof. 1776 – Declaration of its independence 1783 – End of the revolutionary war against Great Britain 1787 – US constitution was framed 1789 – US constitution was ratified 1789 – George Washington served as the 1 st president of America The New World order of America states that America is established from the New World When America was discovered, the continent was barely (sparsely) populated America’s constitution protects the separation of Church and State America was established as a protest against Britain, detaching itself from a king that ran church and state, the Pope. Hence it became a republic (kingdom without a king) and protestant (church without a Pope) nation. We are now at the era of the 2 nd beast of Revelation 13, which we have identified as the United States of America. Revelation 13:11, but He spoke with the voice of a dragon (Satan). 12 He exercised all the authority of the first beast (the Papacy). And he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast (the Papacy), whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 He did astounding miracles, even making the fire flash down to earth from the sky while everyone was watching. 14 And with all the miracles he was allowed to perform on behalf of the first beast (the Papacy), he deceived all the people who belong to this world. He ordered the people to make a great statue of the first beast (the Papacy), who was fatally wounded and then came back to life. The Papacy (1 st beast) was a persecuting superpower that united church and state, and persecuted Christians who did not obey their commands. This then means that America will also unite church and state, and will persecute those who do not obey the commands of this soon to be mirror image of the Papacy. This is something that has been slowly happening in recent times. April 2018 29
