The Beast And The Ten Kings.

Four World Ruling Kingdoms (i.e Nations).

In the Book of Daniel, the Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzar had a disturbing dream vision that jarred him to sleeplessness. The King was so troubled and intrigued by the dream that he summoned all the magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and astrologers of his kingdom and demanded that they both tell him what this dream was and what it meant.

And the king said to them, “I have had a dream, and my spirit is anxious to know the dream.”
Daniel 2:3

All these magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and astrologers however were not able to give the Nebuchadnezzar the answer but he demanded that unless they tell him 'the dream and its interpretation', (failing which) they would all be executed.

The Chaldeans answered the king, and said, “There is not a man on earth who can tell the king’s matter; therefore no king, lord, or ruler has ever asked such things of any magician, astrologer, or Chaldean. It is a difficult thing that the king requests, and there is no other who can tell it to the king except the gods, whose dwelling is not with flesh.”
Daniel 2:10 - 11

We shall divert a little to discuss a misconception about Nebuchadnezzar's demand. Was Nebuchadnezzar irrational and unreasonable to require these magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and astrologers that they must tell him what his dream was? What do you think?

All these magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and astrologers seemed to think so. But not the king, he demanded that ‘they lived up to their billings’, and was so furious when they could not, that he decreed that all these and (very unreasonably) also all those others appointed to administer to the affairs of his kingdom, be arrested and executed. 

Throughout the history of our “civilization” there have been fraudsters and charlatans. These are men (yes, includes women too) who claimed to have special paranormal powers. Some have ascribed these to some magical items they posses. Others claimed of special relationships with some gods or deities or some inherent or acquired spirituality or paranormal (i.e. supernatural) powers within themselves. For that in essence are also what priests lay claim to.

Nebuchadnezzar was not being unreasonable when he demanded that these magicians and astrologers who claimed special paranormal powers, tell him what his dream was. Anyone can give you a nice spin (i.e. some made up stories) if you tell them your dream (as is common in our age where all kinds of professed psychic made claims to mind reading and other paranormal abilities) and the only way to authenticate them is let them tell you what you had dreamt in the first place.

If someone came up to you and tell you they have magical or paranormal powers would it be unfair for you to demand they prove this claims on your terms not on theirs? That was exactly what Nebuchadnezzar demanded. These magicians, enchanters, sorcerers and astrologer made a livelihood off King Nebuchadnezzar.

Daniel Revealed The Dream And Its Meaning.

King Nebuchadnezzar was infuriated by their replies and commanded that they all be executed including all the other counselors and advisers in his regime.

When Daniel learned about the King’s command he went before the King to ask for some time. He then went before GOD seeking GOD’s mercy to reveal the secret that King Nebuchadnezzar demanded. The secret was then revealed to Daniel in a night vision.

Daniel was then able to tell the King both what his dream was and what it meant. The dream was a vision from GOD. Though given and directed to Nebuchadnezzar, it was not mainly for him, as he would soon pass from the scene. The dreams involved kings (i.e. political rulers of sovereign nations) and nations that would arise after him, leading from that time to the time when JESUS CHRIST will return to rule over the nations (Daniel 2:44). So the vision was more a message for us today on whom the End of the Age has come.

The vision was a summary of events that started from Nebuchadnezzar's time leading to the Time of the End when JESUS CHRIST will return to rule over the nations of the earth (Daniel 2:44). The perspective of the vision was of world ruler-ship, or of a king and nation that exercised political rule or authority over the world's people. The context of such a ruler-ship or dominion is that of, exercising of power or authority over, either physically or logically (virtually). This is not necessarily literally, meaning literally over every single nation on earth, though it can be.

In my earlier discussion on this ‘world ruling power’ I mentioned the context of ruling over the people of the world plus over the people or nation of GOD by covenant’. So that is the scope of this ‘King of kings’ context (Daniel 2:37).

Much later, after explaining this vision to Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel was given additional visions of the series of events that would lead to the End of the Age. Included were the details concerning the coming of the MESSIAH, the MESSENGER/MEDIATOR of the Covenant (first advent) and a New Covenant the MESSIAH would institute which would bring to an end to the sacrifices and offering at the temple of Jerusalem (re-established after the temple was rebuilt by the Jews who returned from the Babylonian captivity during the years of the Mede Persia dominance).

That meant that the Covenant (Exodus 19:5 - 6; 20:1 - 17; Deuteronomy 5:2 - 5, 6 - 21, 22) made at Horeb with the ancient nation of Israel (included both nations of Judah and Israel) would come to an end. That happened when JESUS CHRIST the HUSBAND of the Marriage’ Covenant (Jeremiah 3:14) died (Romans 7:3; 1 Corinthians 7:39). HE was the Passover LAMB who died for the sins of mankind. Just before HIS death, JESUS instituted the New Covenant in the Passover with bread and wine of the Passover meal to represent respectively HIS flesh and HIS blood shed in the making of the New Forever Covenant. JESUS CHRIST himself being the Passover sacrificial LAMB of GOD.

So here we have a track of GOD’s ‘plan’ for mankind revealed in these four world ruling kingdoms (i.e. nations or empires) that would according to the appointed time, have rule or authority over the nations of the world. These four kingdoms including all the ten resurrections of the fourth kingdom are the milestones events for this track.

First there was Babylon at the point when Nebuchadnezzar in the glory of his vast empire having power over the very nation of GOD - Judah. At that point the ancient Kingdom of Israel had ceased being a nation and people of GOD after GOD had them carried away by the Assyrian because of continued breaking of their Covenant with HIM, the Covenant made at Mount Sinai (Deuteronomy 5:3, 1 - 5; Exodus 19:5 - 6) mediated by Moses. GOD divorced them (Jeremiah 3:8; Isaiah 50:1) because of their Spiritual adultery - committing fornication with the nations of the world through worshiping their gods of wood and metal and stones plus also having alliances with these pagan nations for protection. The nation of Judah's captivity in Babylon was also because of this same unfaithfulness of Spiritual adulteries.

Followed on the empire of Babylon there was Mede Persia when Babylon fell (Daniel 5:30 - 31). The third kingdom of these four was Greco Macedonia. And lastly there was Rome (includes both pagan and papal) which was to have ten revivals (three under Roman Emperor gods religion and seven under Christmas religion).

It must also be noted that in the writings of the Scripture of Truth, the nation and its king or ruler are not reference as separate entities. The term king can refer to the nation and vice versa. This is because GOD looks at government from the perspective of the head or the one holding authority. That is why women were seldom addressed directly in the Scriptures but mostly man, because from GOD's perspective the man is the head of the family. This does not mean that women are lesser in the eyes of GOD. To fully appreciate this subject please read from the book Bible 101 by this author in the chapters ‘The Elect’ and ‘Sons of GOD, Daughters Of Men.’

Here then is the summary of this track of world ruling nations (Daniel 2:32 - 33) ending when JESUS returns to establish the Kingdom of GOD (Daniel 2:34 - 35) on the land area promised to Abraham and his descendants. This Kingdom will eventually grow to fill and rule over the whole world (Daniel 2:35 last statement) at the Last Great Day (Revelation 21:1 - 8).

1. First Beast or Kingdom was Babylon corresponding to the Head of the Stature.

2. Second Beast or Kingdom was Mede Persia.

3. Third Beast or Kingdom was Greco Macedonia.

4. Fourth and Last Beast or Kingdom was Rome. This last Beast was to have several revivals (Revelation 13:1; 17:3) or resurrections spaced out and distributed through the centuries starting with ancient Rome as overlord of Judea until the last revival at the End of Age. The last of these revivals will be a political and military union of ten nations.

The Focus Of The Bible.

Anyone who has thoroughly read the Christian Bible and understood it would have realized that many of the Holy Christian Scriptures' prophecies pointed to or were focused on the period known as the End of the Age which is specifically the period leading to and encompassing JESUS CHRIST second advent (the Day of The LORD) when HE will return as KING of Kings and LORD of Lords (Revelation 19:16) to rule over the nations (Revelation 12:5, 19:15) of this world.

The problem with men who study the Holy Christian Scriptures and who considered themselves devout or pious and being authoritative on these, have been that their perspective have invariably been limited to their lifetime. They viewed fulfillment of the prophecies as something that would happen in their short lifetime. In other words their focus and perspective have always been from the standpoint of the short duration of their lifespan.

They just were not able or not willing to diligently study and understand that GOD's context and time frame are from the seven thousand years perspective. So whenever they read the prophecies of the Bible they almost always fitted the fulfillment into the duration of their short lifetime. This includes both Saints and sinners.

Daniel to whom GOD revealed this message of Nebuchadnezzar vision and also many other revelations of events that would lead to the End of the Age asked:

........ My lord, what shall be the end of these things?
Daniel 12:8.

Similarly, the Apostles asked JESUS just before HE ascended to Heaven after HIS resurrection:

......... Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?
Acts 1:6

To both these questions the answer was the same. It was not to be in their lifetime, not according to their time frame.

And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.
Acts 1:7

Though it is very natural for all those who study the Word of GOD to want to see the fulfillment of the Kingdom in their lifetime, a sincerely faithful disciple must follow the example and obey the commandments of the LORD and MASTER. This is to seek and do the will of the FATHER.

So like the Prophet Daniel and the Apostles of JESUS CHRIST, we may ask or seek to find out when all these things will be. Where all those self proclaimed prophets have gone wrong was: when without fervently seeking the answer from the LORD and MASTER, JESUS CHRIST, they tried to fit these fulfillments into their lifetime and tailored their interpretations of the Scriptures to that desire when they should have believed and obeyed the Scripture that testified:

And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.
2 Peter 1:19 - 21

That is because knowledge puffs up, meaning when we have a bit of  knowledge or think we know a little something or when we feel we have achieve something great, we start to act like “rocket scientists,” behaving and speaking like we know everything and are somehow superior to the rest of mankind. Every created rational and intelligent personage is affected by this syndrome - what this author called the rocket scientist syndrome (or literally, ego supergorging).

The Book of Revelation.

In Revelation Chapter 17 verse 12, it was prophesied of a scarlet beast with seven heads and ten horns. Here were these ten horns on a beast with seven heads, but these ten horns are ten kings. These ten kings will receive authority as kings with the Beast. So there are actually eleven kings.

The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast.

Ten national political leaders will emerge who will completely support and give their authority to another political leader. How can we identify them?

The key is in the hour. These ten will come into power at about the same time as the one identified as the Beast. When that happens you will know who they all are (if you believe the Bible and remembered what you read here). 

This is very clear in the Scripture but when this happen soon the whole world of professed “Christianity” will still be clueless because of unbelief. So too will most of those who have of their own choice and volition turned from the Truth to embrace lies not loving the precious Truth that GOD had given and entrusted to them, counting it as a common thing that is of no value.

Previously we spoke of the last hour of GOD’s time frame for mankind and here we have the last prophetic hour. Do you know what the difference is or are they the same?

Here then is a crucial key to understanding the prophecies of the Bible, which are the testimonies of JESUS.

The Four Time Concepts In The Bible.

1. Figurative time as representative of a short span of time. The shortest unit of time measurement in the Scripture of Truth is an hour. So when an hour or the hour is mentioned it sometimes refers to this shortest time span measurement figuratively meaning in a very short time or short span of time.

2. Then there is our normal earth time or literal time as in a day of 24 hours (12 hours day and 12 hours night) but only in the Bible time starts at sunset (first hour of night time) and sunrise (first hour of day time). The modern 24-hour time divisions of day and night comes from the Christmas religion (which is the Gregorian calendar used globally today) starting each 24 hours day period at midnight instead of at sunset. In Biblical references a day of 24 hours starts at sunset. Evening being the transition time to a new 24-hour day. The day is then divided into a 12 hours night and a 12 hours day.

3. Prophetic Time which is a day for a year. In prophetic time when a day is mentioned it equates to a year of physical earth time but only the Bible year is 360 days. So the Day of the LORD is a one year long event of 360 days.

4. GOD's Time-frame For Man is set based on the seven-day week created at creation (Genesis chapters 1 and 2). A day is equivalent to a thousand years. So an hour is approximately forty years.

We will not go into the Scriptural basis for this here as you can easily get most of these (the Scriptural references that is) from the internet. In the book Bible 101 by this author how to tell which from which is discussed in greater detail. You can read about this and other concepts and symbols used in the Holy Scriptures in ‘The Keys To Unlocking The Mystery Part 4’.

The Last Resurrection of the Fourth Beast.

JESUS CHRIST was born into the reign of the last of the four Beasts (Kingdoms or Empires) of Nebuchadnezzar's dream vision. Daniel the Prophet was serving under the first kingdom (Babylon) of ‘world’ ruling nations and through to the reign of the second kingdom (Mede Persia) of this vision.

As mentioned, this fourth and last Beast of this vision was to have seven revivals (Revelation 13:1; 17:3). Here it is important for you to understand the concept of ‘types’ or ‘dualism as a Biblical key to understand prophecy fulfillment.

If you are unfamiliar you can read about this in my book Bible 101, in the Chapter, ‘The Old Testament And The New Testament,’ under the topic ‘Keys To Understanding The Mystery.’ These seven revivals are ‘type’ of this fourth Beast, meaning they have some key characteristic of it. They are typed by the role they play. Another characteristic is their close relationship with the Anti-Christs church (Revelation 17:3) or religious system which the book of Revelation termed, ‘Mystery Babylon The Great, Mother of Harlots and Abomination of the Earth’.

Some may have observed some seemingly contradictions between the account in the Book of Daniel (Daniel 7:24) of this fourth Kingdom or Beast from that reveled to the Apostle John in the Book of Revelation (Revelation 17:10). Some claimed that the Daniel's account spoke of ten kings (or revivals of this kingdom) while that of the Book of Revelation spoke of seven. Even the account on the 'Little Horn' appeared to be different from the eighth Beast.

Here it is crucial that you understand the Biblical concept of Dualism and Types. I have only covered this fundamental concept to understand Biblical prophecies very briefly here. You can read more about this in my book 'Bible 101' or read my blogs of this book which consist of abridge version of the first two chapter of this book.

Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
Revelation 17:9 - 11

Earlier we discussed the seven heads and ten horns on this Scarlet Beast (Revelation 17:3) which is the fourth kingdom (Daniel 2:40 - 44) in King Nebuchadnezzar vision. We mentioned that they will be ten political leaders who will emerge together with the Beast of Revelation 13, the very Beast who will make war against Saints of GOD and overcome them.

In the past many have confused this Beast of Revelation 13 who will persecute and murder the Saints, with the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2.  Earlier in this book, it have been shown that these two are not the same personage. That is the Son of Perdition and the person of this Beast that will go to perdition are two totally different persons.

Here again the ‘type’ or ‘dualism’ key is crucial to identifying of this Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2. The role type for the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2 is that of betrayal or that of a traitor. The term ‘Son of Perdition’ had only been used to refer to one other person in the New Testament records. And that was Judas Iscariot who betrayed JESUS CHRIST. Judas was among the first twelve called to be Apostles. Then the concept of the beast symbolism is that of a sovereign ruler of a nation or kingdom whereas the Son of Perdition context spoke of a person who will do away with the Royal Law and Holy Commandments of GOD. The context is of lawlessness (‘mystery of lawlessness’). And the only place in this whole great evil world where the Royal Law and Holy Commandments of GOD is still be kept and perform is in the Church of GOD (‘in the temple of God’) today.

Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as (if he is) God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God (by over ruling and replacing everything that JESUS taught and commanded which the Church of GOD had always honor, kept and obeyed).
Thessalonians 2:3 - 4

So this Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2 would be a religious leader in the very Church of GOD who, acting deceitfully and by manipulating the doctrinally weak Messenger (or Angel), take over the leadership of the Church of GOD and turned that globe spanning congregation apostate. He would then command (opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God) the doing away (i.e. the breaking) of the Everlasting Covenant and the commandments of GOD replacing these with Easter, Christmas, Trinity and the other doctrines of the evil Christmas religion. This had already taken place as prophesied. Read about this fulfillment in the discussion, ‘The Church of GOD Today.’

Now the Beast who is coming into world prominence soon is a political leader and also a military leader. This Beast will rise to political power supported by ten other national political leaders, and will persecute (make war and overcome) the Saints of GOD. The type role here is of persecutor and murderer.

It is hope that it have been made clear for you that the Beast of Revelation 13 is not the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2. You can read further about the Type’ key if so desired in ‘Keys to Unlocking The Mystery Part IV.’

Notice in Revelation Chapter 17 verse 11 it is recorded that the Beast is actually an eighth Beast which is of the seven. So the seventh and last revival of this Beast power is not the Beast who together with the False Prophet (both acting for Satan), will seek the destruction of the Saints of GOD and all those who will obey the commandments of GOD (Revelation 12:17; 13:15).

It is the actually the eighth Beast and not the seventh who together with the False Prophet, will seek the destruction of the Church of GOD (Revelation 12:13). Now this is not to say that the seventh Beast will have no part of this persecution. They just are not the direct ones ruling and ‘calling the shots.’

Failing to wipe out the Church of GOD,  these agents or messengers of Satan will then persecute to destroy all those who would obey GOD (Revelation 12:13).  Those will include all those that GOD have plans for - namely the genealogical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob whom GOD will bring into the covenant, the Everlasting Covenant, just prior to, during and after the Day of the LORD. Exactly as GOD freed the ancient Israelite from slavery in Egypt and brought them into the Old Covenant with HIM in Mount Sinai at Horeb, so also will GOD deliver the survivors of this end time captivity of the genealogical descendants of Israel (Jacob) form their captors and bring them into the New Everlasting Covenant which their forefathers rejected during the Apostolic days and consequently their nation was destroyed. To find out more about these two covenants please read Bible 101.

The ancient Egyptian slavery of the ancient Israelite is a ‘Type’ of this soon coming captivity of the modern day genealogical descendants of this same Israelite. The Typed role here is of captivity or slavery, of not having freedom to act according to ones will - as the Americans will put it ‘of not having liberty.’

So who then is the seventh Beast?

The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.
Revelation 17:12

And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile.
Daniel 2:42

Can you see now who these are, and why the Beast which is an eighth, is of the seven? Now tell me in our current world order where may you find some ten national leaders selecting an eleventh to be a head over them and their nations?

Now this author knows this writings here that he writes, is not going to win him any popularity contests among these leaders and among all those he spoke against, but the opposite. As the time moved closer towards the End of the Age this author will increasingly become the target of such.

These are prophecies from the Christian Bible and should be believed by all who professed the true faith. But unfortunately the bulk of professed "Christianity" have been converted to a "Christianity" that taught either explicitly (i.e. outright) by the Great Harlot Church of Revelation 17 OR implicitly by her daughter churches, that the Holy Christian Scriptures just cannot be and must not be believed. This have been shown and proven without the shadow of a reasonable doubt through all the writings of this author.

The Image of The Beast.

Throughout the centuries since the Apostolic days, many were the prophets of doom who have tried to fit this 'image' of the Beast into some other definitions to advance their messages that those living in, and contemporary to their times, were at the very End of the Age. Most of these conveniently disregarded certain verses that didn't agree with their postulations.

And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
Revelation 13:14

Who will make this image of the Beast? Not the Beast. Not the army of the Beast. Not the False Prophet. Not the Great Harlot Church. Not her daughter churches but those who dwell on the earth, the common citizenry. Has this happen yet?

Is it some secret code? Some intangible object? Would you know it if your eyes see it when it happen? To be sure the Mother Church, the Great Mysterious Harlot of the Book of Revelation had all along had her disciples worshiping such an image. But the image of the Beast that will be built by the very people dwelling on the earth is not yet here. Only problem is when that happens the world would be so mesmerized by this Beast personality and totally duped by this miracle performing False Prophet they will go right along.

Exactly as the whole world of professed “Christianity” is today obeying this Great Harlot Church in keeping Easter, Christmas, Sunday and many of her very pagan doctrines.

You think you wont be duped? Well, have you been keeping and celebrating Easter and Christmas and going to church on Sundays? And believing all the things that mainstream “Christianity” have been teaching? Don't deceive yourself. If you have been obeying and doing all these until now, you are so completely drunk fornicating with this Great Harlot you probably dont know how to ‘count or add’ either. If you continue to deceive yourself, not very long from now you are going to put your hand together with this Beast and this great False Prophet and actively support them to imprison, torture and murder all those who will obey GOD.

For this very reason JESUS CHRIST is returning to punish the nations because they have all along being murdering HIS disciples (Luke 11:49 - 51; Revelation 16).

The Mortal Wound.

Another key identification for this eighth Beast is that this Beast will be mortally injured by an act of violence. I will not discuss this act here but later in this book in another chapter, 'The Beginning Of Sorrows.'

So this Beast will have a mortal wound, a fatal wound that cause death but the Beast will be healed, miraculously healed or come back to life. Because of this recovery the whole world will be amazed and will follow this Beast and worship this Beast.

And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.
Revelation 13:3

Different From The Others.

The ten horns are ten kings Who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones, And shall subdue three kings.
Daniel 7:24

How is this eighth Beast different?

He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.
Daniel 11:37

A Warring Beast.

Another key characteristic of all these four Beasts of Nebuchadnezzar vision is that they are all nations bent on military conquests. And this last revival of this last Beast, a type of ancient Rome, is not any different.

So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?
Revelation 13:4

Mouth Full Of Blasphemies.

Another characteristic of this eighth Beast, it would seem is that she blasphemes GOD's name (Revelation 13:6) and GOD's Church and the hosts of Heaven. But then again haven't the Great Harlot Church and all her daughters being doing this all the while with their doctrines and commandments. Only problem is that all those who dwell on the earth are so drunk by her fornications (embracing and participating in her celebrations and doctrines) that they can't see anything clearly. And when this eighth Beast does the same, they won't be able to see or understand it either.

Even the Church of GOD today is blaspheming GOD's HOLY NAME. They have embraced some of the lies and evil doctrines of the great harlot and her daughters. When you teach that polygamy is a sin, is not that blaspheming GOD's HOLY NAME? And when you teach that sin is falling short of the GLORY of GOD is that not blaspheming the perfect righteousness of GOD?

When you take the name of GOD in your mouth and proclaimed, ‘GOD says’ this or ‘GOD says’ that, when nothing can be further from the Truth, is that not blasphemy. When you usurped the authority of JESUS CHRIST as Head of the Church of GOD to proclaim your own version of the Gospel message according to your own self expedient agenda for the work of the FATHER are you not following after the Son of Perdition (Zechariah 3:2 last part) and near to being thrown into eternal fire (John 15:6).

No One Will Know The Day And The Hour When JESUS CHRIST Will Be Returning.

JESUS during HIS three and half years ministry as a SON of man told HIS disciples:

But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
Mark 13:32 (also Matthew 24:36)

Many self-proclaimed experts and authorities of the Holy Christian Scripture has been quoting these verses to announce and attest that no one will know when JESUS CHRIST will return to destroy the wicked and reward the faithful. Now it would be good if all these know what they are attesting and proclaiming because in the Chapter, 'The Great Tribulation', of this book I have shown that the Scripture of Truth had already revealed it down to the very day, some two thousand years ago.

Your Means To Escape The Coming Destruction.

All the means to escape the present and coming deception have been presented laid out clearly according to the testimony of the Scripture of Truth to identify for you the Beast that will persecute the Saints. It is hoped that all who read this here will no longer be deceived by all the lies that are currently being preached as the Christian religion and also about this eighth Beast so that when she does appear you will not be clueless as to what is going on because of all the wondrous signs that are coming to deceive all who dwell on the earth.

A summary of events that will soon take place relating to this last revival of ancient Rome.

1. The Beast gain political power through the support of ten national leaders. This will happen fifteen years (an hour of prophetic time) before the climatic end at the Battle of Armageddon.

2. Religious proliferation followed by religious persecution of the Elect, the Saints of GOD.

3. Wars and conflicts particularly those involving the Beast power with other nations.

4.  Some five years before the End, the Beast will make a move against Jerusalem only to be confronted by some western powers. War will break out between these western powers, nations that descended from Jacob the Biblical Patriarch, and the Beast power. The Beast will defeat these three major Western powers decimating their nations within a year and carry off the few remaining survivals into captivity.

5. The Beast will return to engage the modern day nation of Israel (the Jewish nation of today), over running Jerusalem in forty days.

6. The Abomination of Desolation is installed and the imprisonments, tortures and murders of the people who chose to obey GOD will commence. When this happen the King of South will attack the Beast but will prove to be no match for her military supremacy and be completely vanquished.

7. Two and a half years after the start of the Tribulation there will be frightening signs in the heavens.

8. GOD retribution on those who imprisoned, tortured and murdered HIS chosen people will begin. This is the year long Day of the LORD. A time of suffering and terror so great that the wicked will seek death as an escape but it will not be granted to them (Revelation 9:6). This is an unprecedented time of terror, suffering, death and destruction not since the beginning of the Age of Man.

9. At the end of the three and a half years the Beast will succeed in killing the two witnesses of GOD. But three and a half days later these two witnesses with be resurrected to life and taken up to heaven. This will coincide with the resurrection of all the dead in CHRIST, to be followed by all the surviving Saints of GOD changing into Spirit personages. The last seven bowl plagues from GOD will begin and last from between thirty to forty five days.

10. Armies of world lead by the Beast will engage JESUS CHRIST in a final climatic battle in Armageddon or Valley of Megiddo.

11. The final tally - ninety percent of mankind wiped out. The armies of the world completely vanquished in the Battle of Great Day of GOD ALMIGHTY.

12. The Beast (political and military leader) and the False Prophet (yes the very same one who performed miraculous signs so that the world will worship the image of the Beast) will be captured and thrown into the Lake of Fire.

We have discussed and clearly laid out the complete series of events that will lead to the very day when JESUS CHRIST will return (the Second Advent) and restore the nation of Israel as the Kingdom of GOD and from Jerusalem HE will rule for a thousand years with HIS Saints. Those of you who have read all these and understood them should know that all these events are still some time away (from man's perspective) but within the lifetime of most who are alive today. If you understand them do not hardened your heart with doubt and disbelief preferring to carouse in these evil times as many among those who are the Saints of GOD having being called are going to do exactly that. GOD will not leave unpunished anyone who understood the truth of HIS Gospel and yet hardened their hearts in disbelief because they think they can deceive GOD. GOD is righteous and just, HE will punish even a man who is after HIS OWN HEART who acted wickedly driven by his lust.

Why have you despised the commandment of the LORD, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon. Now therefore, the sword shall never depart from your house, because you have despised Me, and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your wife.’ Thus says the LORD: ‘Behold, I will raise up adversity against you from your own house; and I will take your wives before your eyes and give them to your neighbor, and he shall lie with your wives in the sight of this sun. For you did it secretly, but I will do this thing before all Israel, before the sun.’”
2 Samuel 12:9 - 12

It is hope that all who claimed themselves to be Christians understand that when you do evil you are despising the commandments of GOD. And if you despise the commandment of GOD, you do not love GOD. Today all those who professed themselves to be Christians make the claims that they love GOD. But right here GOD clearly and strongly declared in the records of HIS Words that doing evil in breaking HIS commandments is to despise HIS commandments.

    The abomination of desolation was the murder of the Lord.
