Understanding the transformer beast of Daniel & Revelation

In the book of revelation there are three beasts form the bottomless pit but of the three there is one that is outstanding in it imitates the real church of God and portraying itself as such persecutes God’s people.  More that this is makes conditions on earth such as to cause war between the nations and sets it up for an overwhelming surprise.

IN Daniel 2 we have the corner stone of prophecy where the image of a man is used to represent human history as the kingdom to rule the earth

And Daniel plainly says to the King of Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar thou art the head of Gold

The kingdoms are represented by the metals their age was renowned for’

Babylon- Gold

Medo- Peria- silver

Greece- brass

Rome- iron

Then the division of Rome into Western Europe- the iron and clay found in the feet, that is the weak and strong nations of Western Europe.

In Daniel 7 these nations are represented as beasts-

Babylon- Gold- lion the king of the beasts are found in symbol of that nation representing itself

Medo- Persia- silver- bear

Greece- brass- leopard

Rome iron- a iron teeth monster or also referred to by Daniel and Christ as the abomination of desolation or dragon that trampled the residue under its feet. The symbol of the dragon was carried by the Romans into battle.

The dragon has ten horns

Amongst the 10 horns on the monster’s head comes a little horn the smallest nation on earth today- the Vatican so it is known as the little horn because it has only around 1000 residence.

Daniel 7:25 says this horn has a mouth and speaks great things against the Most High.  It will think to change God’s law, blasphemes God and is a persecuting power.

Rome the state becomes Roman church and state- thinks to change God’s law and amongst other things uses the inquisition to convince dissenters.

Pagan Rome becomes the Church of Rome which is easily seen in the forum in Italy. Pagan temples like the Pantheon which takes to itself all the gods of the prior nations becomes ‘Christian temples’

In 538 AD power was given to the Roman Bishop by Emperor Justinian to persecute heretics

This continues until 1798 when Napoleon according to prophetic time 1260 days or years takes away the sovereignty of the Papacy and places the Pope under arrest. The prophetic time period is given 7 times to alert our attentions to this power.

This is not the end of this beast the dragon with iron teeth that has the little horn……

For in Revelation 13 we see a beast rise up out of the sea representing nations, kindreds, peoples or the ‘holy see’ and it has a mouth of a lion, the paw of a bear, the body of a leopard and ten horns- its all those kingdoms of paganism that preceded it and then became a persecuting church power. The body of the beast is a leopard and the embodiment of the papacy is Greek philosophy- Aristotle, Plato…. Through Greek philosophy mixed with Christianity the church became contaminated.

Revelation 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 

At its inception Paganism grew, as a counterfeit of the true, until it imbued that which was before it and Rome took all the pagan gods to itself and then was transformed into a church & state power

Here is the final rising of the beast out of the nations- it appear as an amalgamation of beasts and it is has seven heads- the seven heads representing the 7 powers 7 heads through which is rules.

 

This beast that is little horn or this Roman church and state power has had its own autonomy over a 1260 period after which it received a deadly wound and we are told the deadly wound was healed- this occurred in 1929 when Mussolini gave back autonomy to the Papacy.

Since that point the beast thirsts for the former glory it had in the dark ages.

Vatican II council held in the early 1950s delivered a new vision for the Papacy to embrace Protestantism and revive itself. Of particular importance was theological infiltration, different religious liberty ideals Vatican II style, ecumenism and liberation theology. The result would be to reshape the ailing Protestant western world.

The Jesuits concentrated their efforts worldwide but particularly in the bastion of true religious liberty- the once truly Protestant USA.

The little horn cannot operate without powerful nations behind it so it infiltrates the USA and its home continent Europe where the reformation had been strongly defeated by the counterreformation.

Through minority rights vs religious liberty issues the Vatican has crafted what will be known as the lamb-like beast when Protestantism in USA will use the state to legislate its wishes and through ecumenism gives power to the Church of Rome which it uses to abolish its dissenters. 

The persecutions of Protestants by Romanism, by which the religion of Jesus Christ was almost annihilated, will be more than rivaled when Protestantism and popery are combined.–3SM 387 (1889).  {LDE 147.2} 

The beast that come from populous Europe symbolised s the sea (Rev 17:15) gains its power from the beast which appears with lamblike horns and rises from the earth or sparse territory, this is the imagery of Revelation 13.

These beasts become combined into one entity just as Babylon, medo Persia so in the modern era, Protestantism in US become an image to the beast- legislating Christian values through the state that will become worldwide that is universal Sunday law. This is giving power to the Papacy for times and laws are

The Papacy distorts the meaning of the true Sabbath which God set aside as a memorial for creation. Instead the Jesuits promote evolutionary theories such as the big bang and distort that which God said was His Holy day and a perpetual conversant. An angel flying though the midst of heaven calls for worship pointing us back to the language of the 4th commandment associated with the gospel and Revelation repeating Jesus words tells us those that enter into eternal life keep the commandments of God- over and over again this is repeated. Strong messages are given to warm the inhabitants of the earth not to receive the plagues of God and to come out of Babylon. We see that the harlot woman is Babylon see Revelation 17.

Pope Francis ENCYCLICAL LETTER 2015 with a call for the nations to take care of the planet say:  On Sunday, our participation in the Eucharist has special importance. Sunday, like the Jewish Sabbath, is meant to be a day which heals our relationships with God, with ourselves, with others and with the world. Sunday is the day of the Resurrection, the “first day” of the new creation, whose first fruits are the Lord’s risen humanity, the pledge of the final transfiguration of all created reality. It also proclaims “man’s eternal rest in God”.[168] In this way, Christian spirituality incorporates the value of relaxation and festivity. We tend to demean contemplative rest as something unproductive and unnecessary, but this is to do away with the very thing which is most important about work: its meaning. We are called to include in our work a dimension of receptivity and gratuity, which is quite different from mere inactivity. Rather, it is another way of working, which forms part of our very essence. It protects human action from becoming empty activism; it also prevents that unfettered greed and sense of isolation which make us seek personal gain to the detriment of all else. The law of weekly rest forbade work on the seventh day, “so that your ox and your donkey may have rest, and the son of your maidservant, and the stranger, may be refreshed” (Ex 23:12). Rest opens our eyes to the larger picture and gives us renewed sensitivity to the rights of others. And so the day of rest, centred on the Eucharist, sheds it light on the whole week, and motivates us to greater concern for nature and the poor.

 The mass embellishes all the symbols of the sun whose rituals originated in ancient 

Babylon. ”Transubstantiation” was a ridiculous notion that the bread actually become the body of god. The symbol became the literal body in the teachings of the Catholic church.  The day of rest does not centre around the eucharist who origin in in sun worship.

What does Exodus & Deuteronomy say? What day did Jesus teach & worship on? Deuternomy  5:12 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee.
5:13 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work:
5:14 But the seventh day [is] the sabbath of the LORD thy God: [in it] thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that [is] within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou.

Mark  6:2 And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: 

What did Jesus say concerning keeping the commandments? John 14:21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.  

What does Revelation say? 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here [are] they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.   22:14 Blessed [are] they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city. 

‘Satan has wrought with deceiving power, bringing in a multiplicity of errors that obscure the truth. Error cannot stand alone, and would soon become extinct if it did not fasten itself like a parasite upon the tree of truth. Error draws its life from the truth of God.’

   When our nation, in its legislative councils, shall enact laws to bind the consciences of men in regard to their religious privileges, enforcing Sunday observance, and bringing oppressive power to bear against those who keep the seventh-day Sabbath, the law of God will, to all intents and purposes, be made void in our land, and national apostasy will be followed by national ruin.–7BC 977 (1888).  {LDE 133.5} 

     It is at the time of the national apostasy when, acting on the policy of Satan, the rulers of the land will rank themselves on the side of the man of sin. It is then the measure of guilt is full. The national apostasy is the signal for national ruin.–2SM 373 (1891).  {LDE 134.1} 

     Roman Catholic principles will be taken under the care and protection of the state.  This national apostasy will speedily be followed by national ruin.–RH June 15, 1897.  {LDE 134.2} 

     When Protestant churches shall unite with the secular power to sustain a false religion, for opposing which their ancestors endured the fiercest persecution, then will the papal sabbath be enforced by the combined authority of church and state.  There will be a national apostasy, which will end only in national ruin.–Ev 235 (1899).  {LDE 134.3} 

     When the state shall use its power to enforce the decrees and sustain the institutions of the church–then will Protestant America have formed an image to the papacy, and there will be a national apostasy which will end only in national ruin.–7BC 976 (1910).  {LDE 134.4}

 

The work of the two beasts of Revelation 13 brings in an ecumenical movement and with it the coming of the false Messiah.  ‘Transgression has almost reached its limit. Confusion fills the world, and a great terror is soon to come upon human beings. The end is very near. We who know the truth should be preparing for what is soon to break upon the world as an overwhelming surprise. . . . {CTr 359.3}    

Revelation 13:3,4 Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

The picture described in revelation 12 sudden turns to this in revelation 13: and all the world wondered after the beast.  And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?  (The image of Daniel 2 being complete is the image of man who presents himself as the son of man and demands the worship of the world as that which occurred on the plain of Dura in which the 3 faithful Hebrews were thrown into the fire for not worshipping the image. See Daniel 3.)

   Satan will come in to deceive if possible the very elect. He claims to be Christ, and he is coming in, pretending to be the great medical missionary. He will cause fire to come down from heaven in the sight of men to prove that he is God.–MM 87, 88 (1903).  {LDE 167.4} 

In this age antichrist will appear as the true Christ, and then the law of God will be fully made void in the nations of our world. Rebellion against God’s holy law will be fully ripe. But the true leader of all this rebellion is Satan clothed as an angel of light. Men will be deceived and will exalt him to the place of God, and deify him. But Omnipotence will interpose, and to the apostate churches that unite in the exaltation of Satan, the sentence will go forth, “Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her” [Revelation 18:8].–TM 62 (1893).  {LDE 168.2} 

     As the second appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ draws near, satanic agencies are moved from beneath. Satan will not only appear as a human being, but he will personate Jesus Christ, and the world that has rejected the truth will receive him as the Lord of lords and King of kings.–5BC 1105, 1106 (1900).  {LDE 168.3}

  The wicked . . . declared that they had the truth, that miracles were among them, that angels from heaven talked with them and walked with them, that great power and signs and wonders were performed among them, and that this was the temporal millennium that they had been expecting so long. The whole world was converted and in harmony with the Sunday law.–3SM 427, 428 (1884).  {LDE 136.1} 

The papacy knows that the USA who they have had great influence over particularly in the post WWII era cannot last as a power and when its power is spent it shall form an allegiance with the 10 kings of Europe (10 toes of the image of Daniel 2) which it receives for a short period of time ultimately leading to its final destruction. Be sure that German has been given back its strength and is an important member of the UN as is France, as is the Papacy.  Powers that supported the Papacy in the past will also again.

The transformation is complete- a whore is riding a red or scarlet coloured dragon. Lucifer has come as the Christ an overwhelming delusion.

Revelation  17:5 And upon her forehead [was] a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 

 17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. 

 17:7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 

 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. 

 17:9 And here [is] the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 

 17:10  And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, [and] the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 

 17:11  And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 

 17:12  And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. 

 17:13  These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 

 17:14  These shall make war with the Lamb, and the lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him [are] called, and chosen, and faithful. 

The heads of the beast

  1. Babylon-Rev 17:5
  2. Medo- Persia
  3. Greece
  4. Rome
  5. Church of Rome
  6. Protestant USA
  7. United Europe apostate Europe
  8. Revived papacy following Vatican II in which the Jesuits have a leading role

The tens horns that have 10 crowns represent the 10 kings or kingdoms of Europe that are the same as the 10 toes of the image of a man found in Daniel 2.

The Papacy literally sits upon 7 mountains and has seven phases.

In contrast is the church of God pictured in Revelation 12 as a virgin dressed in white, clothed in the sun, with the moon underneath her feet representing the Old and New Testaments.

The true church is based on the Old and New testament that means His people follow Jesus and all the commandments of God- the 4th commandment is a signature of the creator and testament to his creative power to raise is people from the dead at the last trumpet, this is in contrast to an apostate church, though many innocently following false teachings with soothing words that the dead are alive in heaven and calls its people to worship on pagan day – that is Sunday worship.  

 

The mark or sign of God is the opposite to the mark or sign of the beast . Exodus 31:14   Ye shall keep the sabbath therefore; for it [is] holy unto you: every one that defileth it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever doeth [any] work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. 

 31:15  Six days may work be done; but in the seventh [is] the sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD: whosoever doeth [any] work in the sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. 

 31:16  Wherefore the children of Israel shall keep the sabbath, to observe the sabbath throughout their generations, [for] a perpetual covenant. 

 31:17  It [is] a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for [in] six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. 

 

What of the future? Isaiah  66:22     For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain. 

 66:23  And it shall come to pass, [that] from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD. 

In the end consider that God sent His Son that none would be deceived by how to worship, how to obtain eternal life rather He has made it simple and plain by Christ showing us the way and saying follow me.
