|Many declare that the United States will crumble and fall in economic collapse to be no more a superpower, but that is a direct denial of Christian prophecy. It will have economic problems like all others, yes. However, it will never lose its global power. In fact, it will become THE power that helps the Antichrist enforce the mark of the beast all around the world. Below is a study in the Scriptures verifying this as fact.|
Before studying, you may want to study up on the fact that the Vatican is the Earthly residence of Antichrist. This is an undeniable fact. What I would like to do in this writeup, however, is to reveal yet “another beast” that prophecy declares will help the beast in the Vatican enforce its mark upon all of mankind.
Revelation 13:11-12 “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”
The “first beast” that received the deadly wound was indeed the Vatican. For the sake of clarity, let’s review that period in history when the wound was administered to see if the prophecy helps us realize who this second beast is.
Revelation 13:1 “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”
In prophecy: The sea = many different people
Sea = “peoples, nations and tongues” (Revelation 17:15 “And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.”)
Fact: Roman Catholicism arose out of Western Europe with a multitude of “peoples, nations, and tongues” as parishioners. And presently the Roman Catholic church sports the highest number of “peoples, nations and tongues” the world over. In fact, as of 2010 there were 175 nations out of 192 on earth in agreement with Vatican City.
Anyone with “eyes that see” can realize the Vatican is identified in Prophecy as the beast that comes forth from the “sea.”
Students of prophecy understand the first beast has already received its “mortal wound” as Revelation 13:3, 10 speaks of, as History so accurately records …
Revelation 13:3 “And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death …”
The Roman Church / Antichrist will cause many to go into captivity and therefore the leader of this church will go into captivity as well because Revelation 13:10 says,
Revelation 13:10“He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: …”
Fact: “In 1798 General Berthier made his entrance into Rome, abolished the papal government, and established a secular one.” –Encyclopedia Britannica 1941 edition
Fact: Pope went into exile and died.
|Pope dies: August 1799:|
“Half Europe thought … that with the Pope the Papacy was dead.” -Joseph Rickaby “The Modern Papacy” Lectures on the History of Religion, Lecture 24, (London Catholic Truth Society, 1910), p
Directly AFTER Revelation 13:10 declares the first beast will be mortally wounded, we see verse 11 declaring yet ANOTHER BEAST will appear at that time as well. This is where we begin to see the truth about the United States coming to light.
Revelation 13:11 “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”
This prophecy chronologically links the Pope’s captivity in 1798, and death in 1799, with an emergence of another beast. However, this second beast will not be coming out of a “multitude of nations, tongues and peoples.” It will be coming up out of the “earth” instead. Can we know who this beast is that began to arise in power around the end of the 18th century? And does prophecy also explain what it means to come up from the “earth?”
Before going further, we must understand the prophecy defines a beast as a nation and or political power. Daniel gives ample understanding of that fact as we will see in a moment. Plus, we must also understand that “horns” in prophecy are defined as “kings” or “ruling entities” that govern the nations.
In prophecy: A beast = a nation. A king = a ruler
Daniel 7:17 “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.”
Daniel 7:23 “Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.”
Daniel 8:20-21 “The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king.”
As we learned earlier, Revelation 17:15 defined the “waters” that the first beast rose from was the densely populated areas of the world that held many peoples, nations, and tongues. However, the opposite of that would be an uprising out of the “earth” where no one of any “power” resided beforehand. Is there such a place in history?
Historic fact is, the only power which arose out of a sparsely populated area at the end of the 18th century was in fact the United States. America came out of the new world “officially in 1776, which is definitely at the end of the 18th century. This is also the same time in history when the Vatican received its mortal wound of 1798. But, does the United States of America accurately fit all the features of this prophecy?
Are there any other identifying aspects of this prophecy that only the United States could fulfill?
Revelation 13:11 stated earlier that this nation which arises at the end of the 18th century will display “lamb-like” features. This, in fact, accurately identifies the “Christian beginnings” of the United States of America. The Christian (lamb-like) traditions of the United States were drafted directly into the fabric of this nation. Even the Constitution of this land was designed to reflect a belief and trust in the Christian God. However, the prophecy also states plainly that this nation will eventually “speak as a dragon” does it not?
As many are aware, the United States of America is in fact the most powerful nation on Earth, and it has been known to do horrendous acts on foreign soil and quite recently right here at home as well. It has held the position of a “superpower” for the majority of its history. This fearsome power has literally ruled over all the nations of this world for some time now. And it has done so by FORCE! Everything including having dropped Atomic Bombs on the Japanese people killing tens of thousands instantly and hundreds of thousands by radiation poisoning over the years. Not to mention even more birth defects.
The USA has also been known to enforce financial embargos designed to cripple entire nations that won’t do as they demand. However, the prophetic descriptions do not end there. Not only does this “lamb-like” nation help the Christians flee Vatican persecutions as well as speak as a dragon, this nation will also be used to attack the children of God the world over.
Revelation 12:12 “… 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 devil will persecute the people controlled by the Vatican as well as the United States in these last days. Satan will actually use the Vatican inhabitants (sea) and Americans (earth) to enforce the mark of the beast on their own people!
Fact is, that actually entails ALL of mankind! The Vatican does have its controlling powers in almost every nation now, just as the United States has theirs. An amazing fact that MANY miss is we can actually see the makings of a SATANIC TRINITY in the way the Dragon, the Vatican and the American government are all coming together as one in agreement with the final desires of Satan himself; that is, to enforce the mark of the beast.
Revelation 13:1-2, 11-12 “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, … and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast …”
We know who the beast from the sea is, and we know who the beast from the earth is, but who is this dragon?
Revelation 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
|The Trinity of Hell The Dragon (Satan) The beast rising from the sea (Vatican) The beast rising from the earth (USA)|
Here is something MANY people miss regarding the Dragon, the Vatican, and the USA. Satan always mocks the Lord because God’s design is perfect and he knows it. So, he uses Heavenly structured methods, but of course he does so with satanic wickedness. Notice these three tables that illustrate the actual mockery of the God head by Satan and his cohorts.
Revelation 13:12 “And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”
The political power of the beast rising from the earth will not want worship. However, it will enforce worship of the beast rising up from the sea instead. This is mainly because the Vatican has always been known to seek mankind to bow to the popes. Since the system is already in place and leaders the world over already worship the popes, it would work best to continue on in this manner.
When the United States of America puts forth laws that declare you must agree with, give reverence to, and obey the laws of the Vatican over and above the Law of God, they will, at this time, force all of mankind to worship the pope. How is this possible? How will they do it?
Revelation 13:13 “And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,”
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, the United States has become a major player in international policy as well as international legislation. Its influence over the nations is second to none! When the White House speaks everyone on earth listens intently.
And since the fire came down “in the sight of men” when the United States bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, the American “voice” (speaks as a dragon) was recognized as a voice that boldly states, “DO AS WE SAY OR ELSE!” Soon, their acts will be even more theatric as it is plainly written that the United States will “deceiveth them that dwell on the earth,
Revelation 13:14 “by the means of those miracles which he had power to do …”
Still, some may take me out of context to assume I am saying this devilish act at Hiroshima was the only fulfillment of the prophecy. I repeat, I have no doubt in my mind that when Satan stands on earth claiming to be the Messiah that he will repeat this fiery act in a more visual manner without warheads so as to lure even more souls into his camp of damnation.
The United States will charm and deceive those that dwell in the earth not only by their military power and political savvy. The “American way” has become the standard by which all the other nations of the world strive to emulate. Almost everyone wants to be in America! Satan knew that America could do it in both ways. By FORCE in those nations that wouldn’t agree, and by “CHOICE” in those nations that strive to emulate it.
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?”
The United States placed their first “ambassador to the Vatican” in 1984. Since then the movements of Rome have been more and more obvious within the governing halls of Washington DC. The most graphic accomplishment of the Roman-American connection was obviously seen in the fall of the Berlin Wall as well as the breakup of Communism. Now when people look at the Vatican with its evil desires, they know the massive power of the American military is under their thumb. Worse yet, the small handful of nations that still refuse to bow to the pope know full well 175 nations have! They literally have stated time and time again that “who is like unto the Vatican? Who can make war with them?” Yes, it’s mostly because of the American technological advances in weaponry that scare them, still … that’s not where prophecy stops illustrating.
Revelation 13:14 “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
Prophecy declares the United States must set up an “image of the beast.” Before long, the United States Government will not only flex its governing abilities on a civil level, it must also influence the world’s religious leaders as well. The United States will create a system that appears as a duplicate to the beast in Rome. It must do as Rome does. And since Rome not only governs in a “civil” manner, as well as a “religious” manner, America must generate a similar fashion of government. The United States needs to set up a religio-political system that emulates Rome for this prophecy to be fulfilled. Keep in mind, this is regardless of the fact that Jesus said we must keep church & state separate! Our Creator plainly stated in,
Matthew 22:21 “… Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.”
The Vatican has ignored that basic fact since day one as we all can plainly see. According to prophecy, the USA will do the very same thing. They will totally ignore what history so graphically recorded as the end results of a “church & state” conglomerate. The Roman Catholic Vatican killed more than 500 MILLION people when they had their “42 prophetic months” of power during the dark ages. The United States chooses to ignore this historic fact with a rather graphic and quite satanic faithless fervor.
Revelation 13:15 “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.“
Prophecy is so boldly declaring that a “Christian Coalition” must be formed in these last days that will eventually undermine the church & state separation so as to push forth their agenda. Not knowing, of course, that their agenda has been all along the real agenda of Rome. The Roman catholic church has infiltrated every aspect of Protestantism to such an extent that there is now no difference between the two today.
The leaders of the church that once protested against Rome have now decided to return to their mother church so as to do what they feel is the necessary thing in these evil days. They see all the decadence of the halls of justice in D.C. as well as the sewage of Hollywood, and the garbage spewing from music producers as well as the drug culture of America as a reason to abolish church & state separation in order to “do the moral and right thing” in government. Fact is, they played right into the hands of Rome.
The mainstream churches of America have joined together as of June 26, 2000 to follow after the pope and all he wishes. Thanks to the first Roman Catholic president, John F. Kennedy, who not only outlawed prayer in schools and enacted blue laws outlawing Sunday work in government agencies, his vice president Lyndon Johnson set up the 501C3 tax free system for all churches. In order to receive their tax-free status, they must join their churches with their State of origin! That is a copy of the Vatican City / Roman Catholic church.
But it gets worse! Yes, all churches in the USA are a church & State conglomerate, but they were unable to do as Rome does when it comes to lobbying law. So, on March 7th, 2006 the Bush administration put into law a brand-new executive order (# 13397) that REMOVES the separation of church and state and forces all churches (with 501C3 status) to become government agencies capable of lobbying law!
Anyone with half a brain can see the politicians of this nation will do everything in their power to assure re-election. If the massive pool of Christian voters want their voice heard, you can rest assured that they will be heard! Especially now that they have a voting block that outshines any other. Problem is, it’s a Roman Catholic contrived block that will bring about the prophesied mark of the beast.
By the way, with that 501C3 status comes the command that NOTHING POLITICAL is allowed from church pulpits. This is why all the American churches stopped preaching prophecy! If they speak about the antichrist in Rome, they will lose their 501C3 status and be fined millions of dollars! You see, the Vatican is not only a church spoken of in prophecy, it is also a political entity (Vatican City). So, don’t expect any church with a 501C3 to help you or your family get ready for the prophesied Antichrist. As Jesus said, they are in it for the money … not the message.
So, how does it all come about?
Revelation 13:16-17 “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
Once this religio-political system is setup in America, we will all see the American President putting forth laws that directly benefit the Vatican so as to enforce the mark of the beast upon all mankind. Of course, it will first be enforced in America. Soon after, all will see this mark enforced on a global scale. Anyone that refuses will be found without the ability to buy and sell, and then shortly after that they will be finding themselves at the business end of a guillotine.
By the way, if you feel America or any other nation on Earth is incapable of preventing you and I from buying and selling, let me ask you this: Do you remember the “ration stamps” that the United States Government strictly enforced during World War II?
These ration stamps were used to control the “buying and selling” of such things as FOOD, FUEL, TIRES, and other necessities of life. If you’re not old enough to remember these historic facts, ask your parents or grandparents for the truth about this. Or, research it on the Internet. I am positive there are millions of “historic” websites out there with ample information.
Plus, with today’s technology all they have to do is create an ID Card that will hold all your private information, which includes your bank records, employment, religiosity, ethnicity, health records, marital status, etc. That way when they ask you the question on that fateful day, “do you agree with the Roman mandate?” Your answering “No!” will see all your abilities to buy and sell turned off in an instant anywhere in the world. Is there such a system setup right now that can do this using the Internet? Yes, there is.
Has this method of mass control been used before you ask? Yes, it has …
|ALL MUST WORSHIP THE IMAGE OR DIE!|
|Daniel 3:4-6||Revelation 13:14-15|
|“Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is commanded, O people, nations, and languages, That at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.”||“And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”|
Daniel 3:7-8 “Therefore at that time, when all the people heard the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and all kinds of musick, all the people, the nations, and the languages, fell down and worshipped the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up. Wherefore at that time certain Chaldeans came near, and accused the Jews.”
The government of Daniel’s day put forth laws that promised death if you did not worship the “image” it had set up! As we saw, Daniel’s three friends refused to break the Law of God for the laws of mankind. This, of course, angered the king of that day, just like it will anger the governing bodies of our day when “certain Christians” refuse to break the Law of God for the law of man.
Daniel 3:14-15 “Nebuchadnezzar spake and said unto them, Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, do not ye serve my gods, nor worship the golden image which I have set up? Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?”
Talk about pressure! These three men of God stood the ultimate test in the face of a true enemy determined to kill them in a most painful way if they chose not to worship his image. So, what did they do?
Daniel 3:16-18 “Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.”
The story DOES have a happy ending just as we will have as well. The Lord Jesus arrived to save them just as He will arrive to prevent the deaths of those true Christians found worthy of enduring the plagues of Revelation. The king did in fact throw Daniel’s three friends into the fiery furnace. However, this is what he saw after doing so …
Daniel 3:24-25 “Then Nebuchadnezzar the king was astonied, and rose up in haste, and spake, and said unto his counsellors, Did not we cast three men bound into the midst of the fire? They answered and said unto the king, True, O king. He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God.”
Still, there are many that will see death before the plagues fall. Not all can be part of that Gideon band that have the faith to endure the plagues. The governments of this world will indeed behead many that refuse to go along with the Vatican and its image, for it is written …
Revelation 20:4 “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”
Not to worry … This is all part of the Heavenly plan.
1 Peter 4:12-13 so lovingly declares, “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.”
So … is the USA setting up an image of the beast? Will the Christian Coalition that was formed by Pat Robertson be used by the dragon to get the American politicians passing laws that will guarantee votes as well as pacify the “so-called” Christian churches of America? Will these laws that “pacify” the Christian Coalition be Roman laws? Will the American politicians give the Christian Coalition a voice that echoes that of Rome? Will certain Government agencies be re-structured to assure the Vatican’s desires are enforced? Will the United States of America have a “CIVIL” as well as a “RELIGIOUS” voice designed to enforce the mark of the beast?
