A beast in prophecy symbolizes 1 kingdom, hence why this beast in the book of Daniel was said to symbolize a kingdom,

He gave me this explanation: The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth… (Daniel 7:23)

Yet the “beast” in the book of Revelation,

And I saw a beast ascending out of the sea… (Revelation 13:1)

Symbolizes more than 1 kingdom, which is why it rises out of the “sea”, out of many kingdoms,

And the angel said to me, The waters that you saw… are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages.(Revelation 17:15)

Which are 7 distinct kingdoms, which is why the beast of Revelation has 7 “heads”,

And I saw a beast ascending out of the sea, with… seven heads… (Revelation 13:1)

The seven heads are… seven kings
(Revelation 17:9-10)

Because each “head” symbolizes a kingdom where Satan was enthroned in, who is the head of all kingdoms on earth, because he was granted authority over all kingdoms on earth,

And the devil took him up and showed him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time, and said to him, “to you I will give all this authority and their glory, for it has been delivered to me, and I give it to whom I will.” (Luke 4:5-6)

In their case the god of this aeon has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of the Messiah, who is the image of God. (2 Corinthians 4:4)

Which is why at one point in time, Satan was enthroned in Pergamum, which was in the kingdom of Greece,

To the angel of the assembly in Pergamum write: These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword. I know where you live – where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your belief in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city – where Satan lives. (Revelation 2:12-13)

And through these 7 kingdoms, in the great city of each kingdom, Satan ruled over the earth by giving his authority to each of these 7 specific kingdoms, which is symbolized by the dragon giving his authority to the beast,

And I saw a beast rising out of the sea… and to it the dragon gave his power and his throne and great authority. (Revelation 13:1-2)

Which in turn, these great kingdoms ruled over lesser kingdoms on the earth, and in this way, through all kingdoms on earth from the kingdoms at the bottom to the kingdom at the top of the hierarchy, where Satan was enthroned, he received the admiration and worship he desires,

Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to him, “all these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” (Matthew 4:8-9)

And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast (Revelation 13:4)

And at the time the visions written in the book of Revelation were given to the author John, 5 heads of the beast of Revelation had already fallen, because each head ruled chronologically one after the other throughout time, and the 6th head was in authority at that time, which were the Romans,

And there are seven kings — the five fallen, the one is… (Revelation 17:10)

As such, the 1st head of the beast of Revelation were the Egyptians, who enslaved the Israelites, and were thus the 1st great kingdom to rule over the people of God,

Now there arose a new king over Egypt, who did not know Joseph. And he said to his people, “behold, the people of Israel are too many and too mighty for us. Come, let us deal shrewdly with them, lest they multiply, and, if war breaks out, they join our enemies and fight against us and escape from the land.” Therefore they set taskmasters over them to afflict them with heavy burdens. They built for Pharaoh store cities, Pithom and Raamses. (Exodus 1:8-11)

And the ancient city Satan enthroned himself in this kingdom may have been Memphis, which is near the current city of Cairo, and after them the 2nd head of the beast of Revelation were the Assyrians, who took the house of Israel into captivity, and were thus the 2nd great kingdom to rule over the people of God,

The king of Assyria invaded the entire land, marched against Samaria and laid siege to it for three years. In the ninth year of Hoshea, the king of Assyria captured Samaria and deported the Israelites to Assyria. He settled them in Halah, in Gozan on the Habor River and in the towns of the Medes. (2 Kings 17:5-6)

shutterstock_616116905 shutterstock_57090319

And the city Satan enthroned himself in this kingdom may have been Ninevah, which was an evil city the prophet Jonah was sent to to prophesy against,

Then the word of Yehovah came to Jonah a second time: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and proclaim to it the message I give you.” Jonah obeyed the word of Yehovah and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very large city; it took three days to go through it. Jonah began by going a day’s journey into the city, proclaiming, “Forty more days and Nineveh will be overthrown.” (Jonah 3:1-4)

Then the 3rd head of the beast of Revelation were the Babylonians, who took the house of Judah captive, and were thus the 3rd great kingdom to rule over the people of God,

He carried all Jerusalem into exile: all the officers and fighting men, and all the skilled workers and artisans–a total of ten thousand. Only the poorest people of the land were left. Nebuchadnezzar took Jehoiachin captive to Babylon. He also took from Jerusalem to Babylon the king’s mother, his wives, his officials and the prominent people of the land. The king of Babylon also deported to Babylon the entire force of seven thousand fighting men, strong and fit for war, and a thousand skilled workers and artisans. (2 Kings 24:14-16)

shutterstock_695671135

And were also the 1st great kingdom to destroy the temple of God, and took the articles of the temple to Babylon,

Jehoiakim was twenty-five years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem eleven years. He did evil in the eyes of Yehovah his God. Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon attacked him and bound him with bronze shackles to take him to Babylon. Nebuchadnezzar also took to Babylon articles from the temple of Yehovah and put them in his temple there. (2 Chronicles 36:5-7)

In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it. And Yehovah gave Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, with some of the vessels of the house of God. And he brought them to the land of Shinar, to the house of his god, and placed the vessels in the treasury of his god. (Daniel 1:1-2)

Therefore he brought up against them the king of Babylon, who killed their young men with the sword in the house of the set-apart place and had no compassion on young man or virgin, old man or aged. He gave them all into his hand. And all the vessels of the house of God, great and small, and the treasures of the house of Yehovah, and the treasures of the king and of his princes, all these he brought to Babylon. And they burned the house of God and broke down the wall of Jerusalem and burned all its palaces with fire and destroyed all its precious vessels. He took into exile in Babylon those who had escaped from the sword, and they became servants to him and to his sons until the establishment of the kingdom of Persia, (2 Chronicles 36:17-20)

And in a vision Daniel saw of 4 beasts,

And four great beasts came up out of the sea… (Daniel 7:3-4)

They coincide with the 1st beast of Daniel, who also symbolized the Babylonians, who had an appearance of a lion,

The first was like a lion and had eagles’ wings. Then as I looked its wings were plucked off, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man, and the mind of a man was given to it. (Daniel 7:3-4)

Which coincide with the mouth of a lion of the beast of Revelation,

And the beast which I saw… his mouth as a mouth of a lion… (Revelation 13:2)

Which also coincide with the head of the great statue Nebuchadnezzar saw in a dream,

Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue – an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance. The head of the statue was made of pure gold… (Daniel 2:31-32)

in your hands he has placed all mankind and the beasts of the field and the birds in the sky. Wherever they live, he has made you ruler over them all. You are that head of gold. (Daniel 2:38)

And the city Satan enthroned himself in this kingdom was Babylon, which is why when the prophet Isaiah spoke to the ruler of Babylon, he spoke to Satan, for Satan ruled through the ruler of Babylon,

When Yehovah has given you rest from your pain and turmoil and the hard service with which you were made to serve, you will take up this taunt against the king of Babylon… How you are fallen from heaven, oh shining one, son of the morning!  (Isaiah 14:3-12)

Then the 4th head of the beast of Revelation were the Medo-Persians, who ruled over the land of Israel, and were thus the 4th great kingdom to rule over the people of God, and coincide with the 2nd beast of Daniel, which had an appearance of a bear,

And behold, another beast, a second one, like a bear. It was raised up on one side. It had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth; and it was told, ‘Arise, devour much flesh.’ (Daniel 7:5)

shutterstock_749447611

Which coincide with the feet of a bear of the beast of Revelation,

And the beast which I saw… his feet as a bear… (Revelation 13:2)

Which also coincide with the chest of the great statue Nebuchadnezzar saw in a dream,

Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue–an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance… its chest and arms of silver… (Daniel 2:31-32)

After you, another kingdom will arise, inferior to yours.. (Daniel 2:39)

Which also coincide with the ram Daniel saw in a vision of a ram and a goat,

In the third year of the reign of King Belshazzar a vision appeared to me, Daniel, after that which appeared to me at the first. And I saw in the vision; and when I saw, I was in Susa the citadel, which is in the province of Elam. And I saw in the vision, and I was at the Ulai canal. I raised my eyes and saw, and behold, a ram standing on the bank of the canal. It had two horns, and both horns were high, but one was higher than the other, and the higher one came up last. I saw the ram charging westward and northward and southward. No beast could stand before him, and there was no one who could rescue from his power. He did as he pleased and became great. (Daniel 8:1-4)

And when he had spoken to me, I fell into a deep sleep with my face to the ground. But he touched me and made me stand up. He said, “Behold, I will make known to you what shall be at the latter end of the indignation, for it refers to the appointed time of the end. As for the ram that you saw with the two horns, these are the kings of Media and Persia. (Daniel 8:18-20)

And the city Satan enthroned himself in this kingdom may have been the city of Tyre, which is why the lamentation of Ezekiel against the ruler of Tyre was not about the ruler of Tyre, but about Satan through him,

Moreover, the word of Yehovah came to me: “Son of man, raise a lamentation over the king of Tyre, and say to him, Thus says the Master Yehovah“You were the signet of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God every precious stone was your covering, (Ezekiel 28:11-13)

Then the 5th head of the beast of Revelation were the Greeks, who ruled over the land of Israel, and were thus the 5th great kingdom to rule over the people of God, and coincide with the 3rd beast of Daniel, which had an appearance of a leopard,

After this I looked, and behold, another, like a leopard, with four wings of a bird on its back. And the beast had four heads, and dominion was given to it. (Daniel 7:6)

shutterstock_719305414 shutterstock_627952256

Which coincide with the appearance of a leopard of the beast of Revelation,

And the beast which I saw was likened to a leopard… (Revelation 13:2)

Which also coincide with the belly and thighs of the great statue Nebuchadnezzar saw in a dream,

Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue – an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance… its belly and thighs of bronze… (Daniel 2:31-32)

Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. (Daniel 2:39)

Which also coincide with the goat Daniel saw in a vision of a ram and a goat,

As I was considering, behold, a male goat came from the west across the face of the whole earth, without touching the ground. And the goat had a conspicuous horn between his eyes. He came to the ram with the two horns, which I had seen standing on the bank of the canal, and he ran at him in his powerful wrath. I saw him come close to the ram, and he was enraged against him and struck the ram and broke his two horns. And the ram had no power to stand before him, but he cast him down to the ground and trampled on him. And there was no one who could rescue the ram from his power. Then the goat became exceedingly great, but when he was strong, the great horn was broken, and instead of it there came up four conspicuous horns toward the four airflows of heaven. (Daniel 8:5-8)

And the goat is the king of Greece. And the great horn between his eyes is the first king. As for the horn that was broken, in place of which four others arose, four kingdoms shall arise from his nation, but not with his power. (Daniel 8:21-22)

Which then became divided into four kingdoms, through which a great king ascended, which coincides with the “little horn” of the goat,

Out of one of them came a little horn, which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land (Daniel 8:9)

The male goat is the king of Greece, and the large horn between its eyes is the first king. The horn that was broken and in whose place there arose four others stands for four kingdoms that will arise from his nation, though they will not have his strength. Toward the end of their rule, when rebellious acts are complete, a rash and deceitful king will arise. His power will be great, but it will not be by his strength alone. He will cause terrible destruction. He will be successful in what he undertakes. He will destroy powerful people and the people of the set-apart ones. By his treachery he will succeed through deceit. He will have an arrogant attitude, and he will destroy many who are unaware of his schemes (Daniel 8:21-25)

Which may have begun with Alexander the Great, who later in the Greek succession of authority continued with Antiochus IV Epiphanes, which coincides with the “king of the North” of Daniel, who may have been the one who stopped the continual ascending offerings commanded by the Torah according to historical accounts, profaned the temple of God, and may have also sacrificed and offered pigs on its altar, which was thus the “abomination of desolation” prophesied that would occur under the rule of the Greeks, which means an abomination that is committed at the temple of God in a time of its desolation, which has occurred several times by different kingdoms throughout time,

Out of one of them came a little horn, which grew exceedingly great toward the south, toward the east, and toward the glorious land And the continual ascending offering was taken away by him and the set-apart place was cast down. And an army was given to him against the continual ascending offering because of the transgressions, and it cast down the truth to the ground; and he did all this, and prospered. (Daniel 8:9-12)

Then the king of the north shall come and throw up siegeworks and take the fortress city. And the forces of the south shall not stand, or even his best troops, for there shall be no strength to stand… And he shall return to his land with great wealth, but his heart shall be set against the set-apart covenant. And he shall work his will and return to his own land. “At the time appointed he shall return and come into the south, but it shall not be this time as it was before. For ships of Kittim shall come against him, and he shall be afraid and withdraw, and shall turn back and be enraged and take action against the set-apart covenant. He shall turn back and pay attention to those who forsake the set-apart covenant. Forces from him shall appear and profane the temple and the fortress, and shall take away the continual ascending offering. And they shall set up an abomination of desolation. (Daniel 11:15-31)

And the “king of the North” was worshiped as a god,

And the king shall do as he wills. He shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak astonishing things against the God of gods… (Daniel 11:36-37)

Which according to historical accounts the rulers of Greece were worshiped as gods, and the “king of the North” had no desire for women, which according to historical accounts the rulers of Greece were homosexual, as well as many of the Greeks,

He shall pay no attention to the gods of his fathers, nor the desire of women. He shall not pay attention to any other god, for he shall magnify himself above all. (Daniel 11:37)

And as Satan continued to rule the earth from these specific kingdoms, he also ruled over angels that sinned just as he did, and gave them authority over kingdoms, which is why the angel who was sent to speak to Daniel, which was Gabriel, was prevented from speaking to Daniel for 21 days, because the evil angel ruling over Persia prevented him, which at the time the visions were given to Daniel, the new “head” where Satan would rule from next was ascending, which was the kingdom of the Medo-Persians, who came after the kingdom of the Babylonians,

While I was speaking and praying, confessing my sin and the sin of my people Israel, and presenting my plea before Yehovah my God for the set-apart mountain of my God, while I was speaking in prayer, the man Gabriel, whom I had seen in the vision at the first, came to me in swift flight at the time of the evening offering. He made me understand, speaking with me and saying, “O Daniel, I have now come out to give you wisdom to understand. At the beginning of your pleas for mercy a command went out, and I have come to explain things to you, for you are greatly loved. Therefore understand my words and understand the vision. (Daniel 9:20-23)

And he said to me, “O Daniel, man greatly loved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for now I have been sent to you.” And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. Then he said to me, “Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and lowered yourself before your God, your words have been heard, and I have come because of your words. The prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days, but Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I was left there with the kings of Persia, (Daniel 10:11-13)

He took into exile in Babylon those who had escaped from the sword, and they became servants to him and to his sons until the establishment of the kingdom of Persia, (2 Chronicles 36:20)

And the evil angels associated with the kingdom of Greece, around the time of the little horn of the goat, which came after the kingdom of the Medo-Persians, also opposed the angels of God, even against the angel Michael, who is the great angel that protects Israel, the “prince of the armies”, which is how the little horn became great even to the armies of heaven, through Satan, who ruled through the little horn of the goat, and was also in authority over his own angels who opposed the armies of heaven,

It grew great, even to the armies of heaven. And some of the armies and some of the stars it threw down to the ground and trampled on them. It became great, even as great as the prince of the armies… (Daniel 8:10-11)

Michael, the great prince who protects your people… (Daniel 12:1)

For the reason there was struggle between the angels of Satan and the angels of God is because Satan desired to not only rule over the earth, but also to rule from heaven,

You said in your heart, I will ascend to the heavens; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit enthroned on the mount of assembly, on the utmost heights of Mount Zaphon. I will ascend above the tops of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High. (Isaiah 14:13-14)

Which is why eventually a great war broke out in heaven, much later after Gabriel was helped by Michael when he was opposed by the evil angels of Persia, which was an attempt of Satan and his angels to take dominion of heaven, and they fought against Michael and the angels he commands, yet Satan and his angels were defeated, which was around the time the Messiah ascended into heaven and began to rule over heaven and earth, during the time of the next kingdom that came after the Greeks,

At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise… (Daniel 12:1)

Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the deliverance and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Messiah have come Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short! (Revelation 12:7-12)

I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an aeonial dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed.(Daniel 7:13-14)

And Yeshuah came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. (Matthew 28:18)

Yehovah says to my Master: “Sit at my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool.” (Psalm 110:1)

Yeshuah said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” (John 20:17)

So then the the Master Yeshuah, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God. (Mark 16:19)

Who then is the one who condemns? No one. the Messiah Yeshuah who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. (Romans 8:34)

And the city Satan enthroned himself in the kingdom of the Greeks was Pergamum,

To the angel of the assembly in Pergamum write: These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword. I know where you live – where Satan has his throne (Revelation 2:12-13)

Then the 6th head of the beast of Revelation were the Romans, who ruled over the land of Israel, and were thus the 6th great kingdom to rule over the people of God, and coincide with the 4th beast of Daniel, which had ten horns,

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. (Daniel 7:7)

shutterstock_136984766 shutterstock_653304079 shutterstock_555416488 shutterstock_276728588

Which coincide with the ten horns of the beast of Revelation,

It had ten horns… (Revelation 13:1)

Which also coincide with the ten toes of the great statue Nebuchadnezzar saw in a dream,

Your Majesty looked, and there before you stood a large statue – an enormous, dazzling statue, awesome in appearance… its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of baked clay.… (Daniel 2:31-33)

Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron–for iron breaks and smashes everything–and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. As the toes were partly iron and partly clay, so this kingdom will be partly strong and partly brittle. And just as you saw the iron mixed with baked clay, so the people will be a mixture and will not remain united, any more than iron mixes with clay. (Daniel 2:40-43)

And the city Satan enthroned himself in this kingdom was Rome, and it was around the time after the first coming of the Messiah that the people of God were waiting for the “antichrist” to come, also called the “man of lawlessness”,

Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. (1 John 2:18)

And then the lawless one will be revealed… (2 Thessalonians 2:8)

Yet he did not come in the form of a Roman pope, nor the form of a Roman emperor, but in the form of a commander of the Roman armies, which was Titus, who surrounded Jerusalem with armies, profaned the temple of God, and according to historical accounts, was also made “imperator” by his own soldiers, which was the title given to emperors, and may have been worshiped by them as god there at the set-apart place, for such was the tradition that was practiced around that time by certain Romans, to also worship their emperors as gods, just as the Greeks worshiped their rulers as gods,

He will exalt himself and defy everything that people call god and every object of worship. He will even sit in the temple of God, claiming that he himself is God. (2 Thessalonians 2:4)

The Romans upon the flight of the seditious into the city, and upon the burning of the set-apart house itself, and of all the buildings lying round about it, brought their ensigns to the Temple, and set them over against its eastern gate; and there did they offer sacrifices to them, and there did they make Titus imperator, with the greatest acclamations of joy (The Wars of the Jews by Flavius Josephus, Book 6, 6:1)*

*Note: This is merely a reference to an external literature to help strengthen the statements made in this study, and not an endorsement of any other literature or statements made by Flavius Josephus.

And thus he became the “abomination of desolation” that was prophesied to come after the death of the Messiah, the one who would sit in the temple of God claiming to be God, and the one who was also prophesied to bring the destruction of Jerusalem and the temple,

And after the sixty-two weeks, the Messiah shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the set-apart place. Its end shall come like a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.… And shall come an abomination of desolation… (Daniel 9:26-27)

Which is why the Messiah said, “when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies” and “when you see the abomination of desolation in the set-apart place”, then flee Judea, which is where Jerusalem is, for the destruction of Jerusalem is at hand,

So when you see standing in the set-apart place ‘the abomination of desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel – let the reader understand – then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. (Matthew 24:15-20)

When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people. They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled. (Luke 21:20-24)

Some of his disciples were remarking about how the temple was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts dedicated to God. But Yeshuah said, “As for what you see here, the time will come when not one stone will be left on another; every one of them will be thrown down.” (Luke 21:5-6)

And during or after the destruction of Jerusalem, Titus later became emperor of Rome, thus becoming the ruler of Rome who had already exalted himself above gods at the temple of God, through which would come the succession of more Roman rulers, through which would eventually come the succession of Roman popes, who were prophesied to not only abolish the Torah, hence “man of lawlessness”, but also change the appointed times and decrees written in the Torah, such as establishing Sunday as the new Shabbat, and also establishing new appointed times like Christmas,

and try to change times and decrees (Daniel 7:25)

And also speak arrogant words, which was done through various popes, claiming to be the authority and representation of God on earth,

and a mouth speaking arrogant things. (Daniel 7:8)

And also speak blasphemies concerning God, such as teachings like the trinity, and praying to the virgin Mary as if she were a god to listen to prayers, which are all blasphemies spoken through the succession of men occupying the one seat of the Roman authority, first through Roman emperors, then through Roman popes, which have all been the antichrist one after the other, and today the current antichrist is Pope Francis,

And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words… It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven.  (Revelation 13:5-6)

shutterstock_313434011 shutterstock_1231071574 shutterstock_1153919539 shutterstock_548802205 shutterstock_171443828

And this succession of Roman authority was also prophesied to persecute the people of God, for 42 prophetic months, or “a time, times, and half a time”, which is equivalent to 1,260 literal years, which was fulfilled already long ago, through prior Roman popes,

He will speak against the Most High and oppress his set-apart people (Daniel 7:25)

The they will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time. (Daniel 7:25)

and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months… It was given power to wage war against the set-apart people of God and to conquer them
(Revelation 13:5-7)

For a “time” is derived to be 1 year because Nebuchadnezzar lost his sanity for “7 times”, which was 7 literal years,

Let his mind be changed from that of a man and let him be given the mind of an animal, till seven times pass by for him. (Daniel 4:16)

And since the 70 prophetic weeks prophecy of Daniel were 490 literal years, a prophetic day to a literal year, then 42 prophetic months, which is 1,260 prophetic days, is 1,260 literal years, which is equivalent to a “time, times, and a half a time”, which is a time, plus double time, plus a half a time, which is 3.5 times, which is 3.5 prophetic years, and thus, is also 1,260 literal years, calculated using the length of a literal months and a literal year in the calendar of the Torah, which is 30 days to a literal month, and 360 literal days to a literal year,

Seventy weeks are decreed upon thy people and upon thy set-apart city, to finish transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make atonement for iniquity, and to bring in aeonial righteousness, and to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most set-apart one. (Daniel 9:24)

Then John gave this testimony: “I saw the airflow come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him. (John 1:32)

But the Advocate, the set-apart airflow, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (John 14:26)

As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit–just as it has taught you, remain in him. (1 John 2:27)

Which is a distinct time that may have begun around 538 AD when the Roman pope was granted authority by the Justinian Code, to around 1798 AD when the Roman pope was taken into captivity by the French, in which case, during those 1,260 years of the authority of the Roman pope, inquisitions and massacres were perpetrated by the rule of the popes, which did indeed kill the people of God, among many others whose blood was also spilled,

And when the kingdom of the Romans diminished, 10 kings ascended, symbolized by the 10 horns of the beast Revelation, the 10 horns of the fourth beast of Daniel, and the 10 toes of the great statue of Daniel,

Thus he said: As for the fourth beast, there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth… As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise… (Daniel 7:23-24)

Which may have been the Anglo-Saxons, Franks, Visigoths, Lombards, Burgundians, Alemanni, Suebi, Vandals, Ostrogoths, and Heruli, and among them, ascended an 11th little horn on the fourth beast of Daniel, the Roman pope, who continued to rule even after the kingdom of Rome diminished,

I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one… (Daniel 7:8)

And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man… (Daniel 7:8)

Who subdued 3 of the 10 horns, which may have been the Vandals, Ostrogoths, and Heruli,

before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots (Daniel 7:8)

As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise, and another shall arise after them; he shall be different from the former ones, and shall subdue three kings. (Daniel 7:24)

Then the 7th head of the beast of Revelation were the Byzantines,

the other has not yet come, and when he does come he must remain only a little while. (Revelation 17:10)

Who ruled over the land of Israel, and were thus the 7th great kingdom to rule over the people of God, and the city Satan enthroned himself in this kingdom may have been Constantinople, which was later renamed to Istanbul, and the Byzantines built the Dome of the Rock on Mount Moriah, which is why the architecture and mosaics of this building are Byzantine, which was built where the first and second temples of God stood,

Then Solomon began to build the temple of Yehovah in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, where Yehovah had appeared to his father David. It was on the threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite, the place provided by David. (2 Chronicles 3:1)

and he told him, ‘Take these articles and go and deposit them in the temple in Jerusalem. And rebuild the house of God on its site.‘ “So this Sheshbazzar came and laid the foundations of the house of God in Jerusalem. From that day to the present it has been under construction but is not yet finished.” (Ezra 5:15-16)

Which fulfilled the prophecy of the 1,290 years of Daniel of when another abomination of desolation would appear, which in this case did not happen in the temple of God, but on the ground where the temple of God stood, which happened from the time continual ascending offerings ceased, which in one instance happened around 600 BC when King Jehoiakim was taken captive by the Babylonians, which was around the first destruction of the temple of God, to around 692 AD, when construction of the Dome of the Rock was completed, thus 1,290 literal years,

From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. (Daniel 12:11)

shutterstock_469491512 shutterstock_596036861

Which was around the time another 42 prophetic months began, the trampling of Jerusalem by the Gentiles who constructed the Dome of the Rock where the temple of God stood, which is why John was told not to measure the courtyard of a future temple that he saw in a vision, because that is where the Dome of the Rock will continue to be, next to that future temple, which is a time that began around 688 AD, which is around when construction of the Dome of the Rock began, to around 1948 AD, which is when the Israelites took possession of Jerusalem again, in the “Battle for Jerusalem”,

I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the set-apart city for 42 months.  (Revelation 11:1-2)

And during the 1,260 years of the appointed time of the Roman popes, another beast began to ascend, but not from many kingdoms like the first beast of Revelation that ascended from the “sea”, which is why the second beast ascends from the “earth”,

Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth…(Revelation 13:11)

Which exercises all the authority of the first beast of Revelation,

It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf… (Revelation 13:12)

Which symbolizes the United States of America, for the USA ascended from the kingdoms that the Romans divided into when it diminished, which were European men who colonized the “new world”, which was the land of North America, a land that was not as populated as the many kingdoms the beast of Revelation symbolizes, and thus, those colonies ascended as a new kingdom, yet not a kingdom ruled by kings as it was in the kingdoms of Europe, but a republic, ruled by a President and Congress, which is an assembly of rulers from each state of the USA, yet the head of Congress is the President of the Senate, which is the Vice President of the USA, and in this way, the USA is ruled by “2 horns”, the President and the Vice President,

It had two horns… (Revelation 13:11)

shutterstock_52266859 shutterstock_70419058 shutterstock_1158660976 shutterstock_507837871 shutterstock_241514698 shutterstock_538492738

Which was a kingdom that first appeared to be a lamb, because many of its inhabitants were believers of the Messiah, and also distanced themselves from the Roman popes, who at that time were still persecuting many,

It had two horns like a lamb… (Revelation 13:11)

But eventually the USA began to speak like a dragon, because of its incredible military power that it later acquired,

but it spoke like a dragon. (Revelation 13:11)

And displayed that military power in various wars, literally causing fire to come from heaven, as it was prophesied to do, in the form of technology, by missiles and aircraft, causing terrifying nuclear explosions that completely destroyed cities in just a few moments, like the cities of Hiroshima and Nagaski,

And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. (Revelation 13:13)

shutterstock_271619963 shutterstock_317815559 shutterstock_318230978 shutterstock_255039220 shutterstock_245974603

And because of its great power, the inhabitants of the earth are amazed by the USA, which in turn, has caused them to not only mimic the USA in their respective kingdoms with things like music, movies, and television, but also in their form of governments, by establishing republics in the image of the USA, which in turn, was formed in the image of Rome, a republic, for even though the kingdom of the Romans was eventually ruled by emperors, and then continued through popes, Rome was first a republic, which is what the “beast” is in its greatest manifestation, a republic, which is evil, because its basis of good or evil is not on what is truly good or evil, which is defined by the Torah, but on what the majority thinks should be called “good” or “evil”, through votes, and this is the beast that “was”, a Rome ruled as a republic, and the beast that “is not”, which is a Rome ruled by emperors at the time the visions were given to John, and the beast “to come”, a new republic, the final one,

The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to rise from the bottomless pit and go to destruction. And the dwellers on earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world will marvel to see the beast, because it was and is not and is to come. (Revelation 17:8)

As such, the “image of the beast” that the second beast of Revelation causes the inhabitants of the earth to form are republics, in the image of the beast of Revelation as the 6th head, which was Rome, the first republic,

deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast… (Revelation 13:14)

Which is what the USA has done throughout the world, covertly and also overtly, to set up republics throughout the world, which rule independently in each kingdom, and those who resist the formation of these republics are killed, which is seen today in various kingdoms like Iraq and Afghanistan, which are at war with their own people who refuse to be subjected to their republics that were established by the USA, and the kingdoms who refuse to become republics, such as Cuba and North Korea, are considered enemies of the USA, and are sanctioned and cut off from the world, causing them to become very poor, which is also what has happened in Venezuela, which is no longer ruled as a republic and has been sanctioned and cut off from the world, causing it to become very poor,

telling them to make an image for the beast… And it was allowed to give airflow to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. (Revelation 13:14-15)

And through the the power of the USA, which has caused most kingdoms of the earth to become republics, the world worships the first republic, which is Rome, through their respective republics,

and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast… (Revelation 13:12)

worships the beast and its image… (Revelation 14:9)

And in this way the USA fulfills the signs and wonders that would be performed through the Roman authority, through the USA, through its technology, which is also why the second beast of Revelation is called the “false prophet”,

the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf (Revelation 19:20)

The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all unrighteous deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be delivered. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe the lie, in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. (2 Thessalonians 2:9-12)

Which is how the deception is brought forth to the world, in a very subtle way, causing all kingdoms to become like Rome, through the USA, in its form of government and way of life, but in a way that is worse, which is why in the current manifestation of lawlessness throughout the kingdoms of the earth, through the influence of the USA, there are homosexual marriages, men and women dressing up in drag, orgies, debaucheries with drunkenness and drugs, parties and clubs, pornography through the internet, narcissism through Facebook and Instagram, evils through movies and television, evils spoken through music, frauds, extortions, drug companies enriching themselves through the sick, insurance companies enriching themselves through usury, and many more evils which I refuse to put pictures of in this study, which are all contrary to the Torah of God, which is the Law of God, “lawlessness”,

Hear, you earth: I am bringing disaster on this people, the fruit of their schemes, because they have not listened to my words and have rejected my Torah. (Jeremiah 6:19)

See, Yehovah is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants… (Isaiah 24:1)

And the way is prepared for the formation of the new republic that is to come, the beast in its final form, which is the 8th and final head of the beast of Revelation,

And the beast which was, and is not, even he is eighth… (Revelation 17:11)

Which is Rome again, because even though the kingdom of the Romans diminished, the kingdom of the Romans slowly came back, which is symbolized by the healing of one of the heads of the beast of Revelation that appeared to be slain to death, which is the 6th head, the Romans,

One of the heads of the beast seemed to have been slain to death, but the wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. (Revelation 13:3)

the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. (Revelation 13:14)

and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed.
(Revelation 13:12)

But it did not come again in the way Rome first came, through conquest, but in a new way, through money, which is why later on John sees another vision of a woman riding the beast of Revelation,

And he carried me away in the airflow into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. (Revelation 17:3)

Which symbolizes Vatican City, which is located in Rome, the city of 7 mountains, which is also what the 7 heads of the beast of Revelation symbolize,

This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits… (Revelation 17:9-10)

shutterstock_1182862795 shutterstock_122109790 shutterstock_83719768 shutterstock_603979919

Which are Aventine Hill, Caelian Hill, Capitoline Hill, Esquiline Hill, Palatine Hill, Quirinal Hill, and Viminal Hill,

600px-Seven_Hills_of_Rome.svg

Because she not only symbolizes an assembly, or church, which is why she is called a “woman”, which in the book of Revelation a woman symbolizes the assembly of God, the bride of the Messiah,

Let us rejoice and exult and give him the glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and his Bride has made herself ready; it was granted her to clothe herself with fine linen, bright and pure… (Revelation 19:7-8)

But she also symbolizes an assembly of incredible wealth, why is why she is adorned with gold, precious stones, and pearls,

The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. (Revelation 17:4)

Which is why she is called “prostitute”, because she sells herself for money,

the great prostitute… (Revelation 17:1)

Who in our current time is now drunk with all the blood she has previously shed,

I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the set-apart people of God, the blood of those who bore testimony to Yeshuah. When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. (Revelation 17:6)

And the way she causes all the kings of the earth to join themselves with her is through money, like a prostitute, through her system of banks, which is how the kingdoms of the earth have “committed sexuality immorality with her” and how the merchants of the earth have enriched themselves through her, which are central banks in each kingdom on earth, which through many complex layers of banks all trace back to one bank, the Vatican Bank, in Vatican City, in Rome,

For of the wine of the wrath of her sexual immorality have drunk all the nations, and the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth through the power of her luxury have been enriched. (Revelation 18:3)

Which is why she is also called “Babylon the Great”,

And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: Babylon the great… (Revelation 17:5)

Because her system of banks originated in Babylon, yet her system of banks were not used by all the kingdoms of the earth overnight, it began with central banks that slowly made their way to each kingdom on earth, which eventually made their way to the USA, which in turn, through its own central bank, which is the Federal Reserve Bank,

shutterstock_629995424

The USA brought a form of money that would eventually be used by all central banks of the kingdoms of the earth that followed its example, “paper money”, which was the beginning of the “mark of the beast”,

so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark… (Revelation 13:17)

Because unlike things of value that were used to buy or sell before, like silver and gold, which were minted in coins, which had intrinsic value of itself,

Each one who crosses over to those already counted is to give a half shekel, according to the set-apart place shekel, which weighs twenty gerahs. This half shekel is a contribution to Yehovah. (Exodus 30:13)

The silver from those of the congregation who were recorded was a hundred talents and 1,775 shekels, by the shekel of the set-apart place: a bekah a head, that is, half a shekel, by the shekel of the the set-apart place, for everyone who was listed in the records, from twenty years old and upward, for 603,550 men. (Exodus 38:25-26)

And I bought the field at Anathoth from Hanamel my cousin, and weighed out the money to him, seventeen shekels of silver. (Jeremiah 32:9)

A chariot could be imported from Egypt for six hundred shekels of silver, and a horse for a hundred and fifty. Likewise, they exported them to all the kings of the Hittites and to the kings of Aram. (2 Chronicles 1:17)

He bought the hill of Samaria from Shemer for two talents of silver, and he fortified the hill and called the name of the city that he built Samaria, after the name of Shemer, the owner of the hill. (1 Kings 16:24)

Abraham listened to Ephron, and Abraham weighed out for Ephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the Hittites, four hundred shekels of silver, according to the weights current among the merchants. (Genesis 23:16)

shutterstock_382256434

Paper money has no intrinsic value, because it is merely just paper, and its value is what the banks say its value is, and neither does it represent anything of value, because paper money, which first represented gold when it was issued by the USA, no longer has the backing of gold, which is now “fiat currency”, and in this way, whoever buys or sells using paper money is buying or selling literally in the name of the kingdom issuing the paper money, because it has no true value in of itself, except what the bankers say its value is, which is the first form of the “mark of the beast”, which is the “name of the beast”,

so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the markwhich is the name of the beast… (Revelation 13:17)

shutterstock_1168950208 shutterstock_150245693 shutterstock_150070334

Which has been issued to all the inhabitants of the earth, rich and poor, small and great, through the central banks of every kingdom on earth, and is now nearly impossible to buy or sell without it, which comes in many forms in different kingdoms, such as United States Dollars, Colombian Pesos, New Israeli Shekels, European Union Euros, and many more,

Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark (Revelation 13:16-17)

And whoever acquires this paper money, then has “authority” to buy or sell using it, which is what receiving the mark on the “right hand” symbolizes, “authority”, because this vision in the book of Revelation is figurative, with an interpretation, not literal where the inhabitants of the earth would literally be marked on their right hands, for it would be too obvious if it were so,

to be marked on the right hand(Revelation 13:16)

And the “right hand” is a symbol for authority in the book of Revelation and the rest of the scriptures,

And I saw, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a lamb standing as being slain, having seven horns and seven eyes; which are the seven airflows of God being sent into all the earth. And he came, and he took from out of the right hand of the one sitting upon the throne a scroll. (Revelation 5:6-7)

So then the Master, after speaking with them, was taken up into the heaven, and he sat at the right of God. (Mark 16:19)

And having come forward, Yeshuah spoke to them, saying, All authority was given to me in heaven and upon earth. (Matthew 28:18)

For the evil that exists in paper money is not just its lack of intrinsic value, nor its lack of having a backing of anything of value, but also the inflation the banks cause through it, which in turn causes the perceived value of paper money to be worth less day by day, which is why a troy ounce of gold used to cost around $20 US Dollars around 100 years ago and now costs around $1,238 US Dollars in 2018 AD, which in turn causes the inhabitants of the earth to become poorer as their money becomes worth less day by day and their incomes lag behind inflation, which in turn causes the inhabitants of the earth to need to borrow to acquire the same things that men even just 100 years acquired much easier without debt, and in this way, this is what is symbolized by receiving the mark of the beast on the “forehead”, which is “debt”,

to be marked on the right hand or the forehead (Revelation 13:16)

For the “forehead” is a symbol of having an owner, belonging to the one whose name is written on the forehead, which is why those who will belong to God will have the name of God written on the foreheads, figuratively, meaning belonging to God,

They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. (Revelation 22:4)

And in the case of those who receive the mark on the forehead by becoming indebted to the banks, they become slaves to the one bank that all central banks of the world lead to, to the Vatican Bank, in Vatican City, in Rome, which is owned by the Roman pope, the antichrist,

The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender. (Proverbs 22:7)

And as the inhabitants of the earth also use debt to buy and sell, like mortgages to be houses, auto loans to buy cars, credit cards to buy furniture and clothes, and many more forms of debt to acquire possessions, all based on the fiat currency of paper money, they are on the other hand dispossessed of the possessions they are purchasing, because they do not own it, the banks do, through debt, which is why if the banks stopped getting paid, they take what they want, cars, furniture, and even properties, which is all a form of oppression of the poor,

Ye shall not therefore oppress one another; but thou shalt fear thy God: for I am Yehovah your God. (Leviticus 25:17)

You shall not oppress a hired servant who is poor and needy, whether he is one of your countrymen or one of your aliens who is in your land in your towns.(Deuteronomy 24:14)

One who oppresses the poor to increase his wealth and one who gives gifts to the rich–both come to poverty. (Proverbs 22:16)

Whoever oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God. (Proverbs 14:31)

If ever you take your neighbor’s cloak in pledge, you shall return it to him before the sun goes down, for that is his only covering, and it is his cloak for his body; in what else shall he sleep? And if he cries to me, I will hear, for I am compassionate. (Exodus 22:26-27)

And through debt, the inhabitants of the earth become even poorer through interest, which is also forbidden by the Torah,

You shall not charge interest on loans to your brother, interest on money, interest on food, interest on anything that is lent for interest(Deutereonomy 23:19)

If your brother becomes poor… you shall support him… Take no interest from him or profit, but fear your God, that your brother may live beside you. (Leviticus 25:35-36)

If you lend money to any of my people with you who is poor, you shall not be like a moneylender to him, and you shall not exact interest from him. (Exodus 22:25)

I took counsel with myself, and I brought charges against the nobles and the officials. I said to them, “You are exacting interest, each from his brother.” And I held a great assembly against them and said to them, “We, as far as we are able, have bought back our Jewish brothers who have been sold to the nations, but you even sell your brothers that they may be sold to us!” They were silent and could not find a word to say. So I said, “The thing that you are doing is not good. Ought you not to walk in the fear of our God to prevent the taunts of the nations our enemies? Moreover, I and my brothers and my servants are lending them money and grain. Let us abandon this exacting of interest. (Nehemiah 5:7-10)

charges interest. Will he live? He will not! Because he has done all these abominable deeds he will certainly die. He will bear the responsibility for his own death. (Ezekiel 18:13)

he shall not give his money with interest… he shall turn his hand from injustice; he shall execute a just judgment between a man and his neighbor; (Ezekiel 18:8)

He who increases his wealth by interest… gathers it for him who is gracious to the poor. (Proverbs 28:8)

As such, as technology advanced in the USA, the second form of the mark of the beast came, which is the “number of the name”,

so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of the name. (Revelation 13:17)

Which symbolizes digital money, based on paper money, which can be used to buy or sell using debit cards or credit cards, depending on whether the digital money represents a debt, which as opposed to paper money, digital money is mere numbers “calculated” on computers, where buying or selling increases the numerical balance in the bank account of one man, and decreases the numerical balance in the bank account of another man,

shutterstock_493389532 (1)

Which is why the book of Revelations says to “calculate” the number of the beast,

This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666. (Revelation 13:18)

And just as the symbols in the book of Revelation are based on the writings of the Tanakh, the “calculated” number of 666 represents the gold Solomon received in a year,

Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was 666 talents of gold, (1 Kings 10:14)

Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was 666 talents of gold, (2 Chronicles 9:13)

Which coincides with what the numbers written on the paper money were originally intended to represent, which is gold, for the central bank of the USA originally issued paper money backed by gold, which is what all the central banks of the earth have hoarded, and in this way, the vision gave us clues for the wise to identify the true “mark” the vision was speaking of,

shutterstock_130308119

But with time, the bankers decided to no longer continue backing the paper money with gold, and continued printing more and more paper money, and issued that worthless paper money to the inhabitants of the earth, to cause inflation, to cause debt, to slowly become owners of everything, thus leaving the world enslaved to them and impoverished in many places, through their fiat currency, it is the greatest ponzi scheme of thievery the world has ever seen, which is why whoever uses paper money or digital money to buy or sell is worthy to receive the curses that comes along with it, which are plagues, and to be thrown into a lake of lava, which is the “lake of fire”,

Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues; (Revelation 18:4)

And another angel, a third, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and its image and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, he also will drink the wine of the wrath of God, poured full strength into the cup of his anger, and he will be tormented with fire and sulfur in the presence of the set-apart angels and in the presence of the Lamb. (Revelation 14:9-10)

Because those who willingly continue to use fiat currency are just as guilty as the bankers who issue it, because fiat currency also only exists through the mutual consent of the people who continue using it day by day, which is an evil that the Messiah hates, which is why he overturned the tables of the money-changers, who were a type of the bankers that exist today,

And Yeshuah entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of thieves.” (Matthew 21:12-13)

And they came to Jerusalem. And he entered the temple and began to drive out those who sold and those who bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons.  And he would not allow anyone to carry anything through the temple. And he was teaching them and saying to them, “Is it not written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations’? But you have made it a den of thieves.” (Mark 11:15-17)

In the temple courts He found men selling cattle, sheep, and doves, and money changers seated at their tables. And making a whip of cords, he drove them all out of the temple, with the sheep and oxen. And he poured out the coins of the money-changers and overturned their tables. (John 2:14-15)

And because of the difficulty of not being able to buy or sell without fiat currency in the form of paper money and digital money is why it is the ultimate test of endurance of those who truly obey the commandments of God, in our current time, which is not something that existed before in the time of the apostles nor in the time of many believers that came after them, where their test of endurance was much suffering and persecution, even martyrdom,

Here is a call for the endurance of the set-apart ones, those who keep the commandments of God and their belief in Yeshuah. (Revelation 14:12)

For in the Torah are written the commands of God, which forbids buying or selling using false quantities, which is what fiat currency truly is, it is an abomination to God,

You shall do no wrong in judgment, in measures of length or weight or quantity. You shall have honest balances, honest weights, an honest ephah, and an honest hin: I am Yehovah your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt. (Leviticus 19:35-36)

You shall not have in your bag two kinds of weights, a large and a small. You shall not have in your house two kinds of measures, a large and a small. A full and honest weight you shall have, a full and honest ephah you shall have, that your days may be long in the land that Yehovah your God is giving you. For all who do such things, all who behave unrighteously, are an abomination to Yehovah your God. (Deuteronomy 25:13-16)

A false balance is an abomination to Yehovah, but an honest weight is his delight. (Proverbs 11:1)

Unequal weights and unequal measures are both alike an abomination to Yehovah. (Proverbs 20:10)

And this is the sexual immorality the prostitute causes the kings of the earth to commit, fraud through her fiat currency,

with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality… (Revelation 17:2)

…holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the uncleanness of her sexual immorality. (Revelation 17:4)

Which has all prepared the way for the new republic to ascend, the 8th and final head of the beast of the Revelation, which will be the United States of Europe, which is already coming into its final form, which will be given authority by 10 kingdoms, which is who the 10 horns of the beast of Revelation and the 10 toes of the great statue Nebuchadnezzar saw also symbolize,

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.They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. (Revelation 17:12-13)

Yet these 10 kingdoms are not the same 10 kings that ascended after the kingdom of the Romans diminished, because these 10 kingdoms will be republics, which is why in one vision the 10 horns had crowns, symbolizing kingdoms ruled by kings, which are monarchies,

It had ten horns… with ten crowns on its horns
(Revelation 13:1)

But in a later vision John saw a woman riding the same beast with the same 10 horns, but this time without crowns,

There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast… and had seven heads and ten horns. (Revelation 17:3)

Which symbolize 10 republics instead of monarchies, yet in the same lands the 10 previous horns ruled over, in Europe, which will mainly come from the kingdoms that are part of the European Union, but not all member kingdoms will give their authority to the new USE, which may slim down to the following kingdoms, France, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy, Greece, United Kingdom, who may cancel their exit from the European Union, and Turkey, who may be brought into the European Unionwhich are all lands that Rome ruled over before, and in this way, the USE will be the kingdom of the Romans again, a 6th head that was healed and came as the 8th head, a “beast that was, is not, and will come”, because it is being formed by the will of Vatican City, by the Roman pope, the woman riding the beast of Revelation, the whore of Babylon,

shutterstock_317833073 rd_2 rd_6 rd_9 rd_1

As such, Vatican City is not just the city that rules over the kings of the earth through its system of banks,

And the woman that you saw is the great city that has dominion over the kings of the earth. (Revelation 17:18)

But it is also an amalgamation of all the 7 heads of the beasts, borrowing characteristics from each kingdom, the Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Medo-Persians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines,

The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven… (Revelation 17:11)

Which is why it teaches a gospel mixed with a combination of myths from those previous heads of the beast of Revelation, and has changed the gods and goddesses of the previous kingdoms into “saints” and “virgins”, whose statues are prayed to in the same type of idolatry done over thousands of years by many kingdoms, and in this way has also deceived the world through its false gospel,

I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the favor of the Messiah and are turning to a different gospel (Galatians 1:6)

Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But they went out, that it might become plain that they all are not of us. (1 John 2:18-19)

and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries. (Revelation 17:2)

shutterstock_1100268956 shutterstock_151333586 shutterstock_1091132543 shutterstock_566327158

Which through its lies have birthed more prostitutes, which is also why she is called “mother of prostitutes”, because through her have been birthed more false assemblies, which include many of the megachurches that exist in the USA, which have enriched themselves just as she did, and even though they have distanced themselves from the Roman pope, they still believe many of her teachings,

mother of prostitutes… (Revelation 17:5)

And in this way, the last place Satan enthroned himself is in Rome again, in Vatican City, and through the Roman pope Satan receives the worship and admiration he desires, while also ruling over all kingdoms on earth through its system of banks, and also deceiving the world through its false gospel, thus causing the earth to be full of abominations through her,

shutterstock_1186832323 shutterstock_178825760 shutterstock_195361526 shutterstock_310672055

And that is how the 4th kingdom of Daniel, which is Rome, devours the entire earth,

Thus he said: ‘As for the fourth beast, there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all the kingdoms, and it shall devour the whole earth, and trample it down, and break it to pieces. (Daniel 7:23)

And when the USE does finally form, the 10 kingdoms that gave their authority to it will realize who they gave their authority to, to Rome, to Vatican City, to the Roman pope, and will hate her because of it,

And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute (Revelation 17:16)

And will expose what she has done, which is symbolized by making her naked, they will ransack her, which is symbolized by eating her flesh, and will destroy her, which is symbolized by burning her with fire,

They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire (Revelation 17:16)

Which will be the first “payback” against her, for her destruction comes in two portions,

Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Pour her a double portion from her own cup. (Revelation 18:6)

Which first comes from the 10 kingdoms that gave their authority to her through the USE, which in turn, will cause the greatest financial collapse the world has ever seen, because destroying Vatican City will also destroy the Vatican Bank, which is the bank all central banks of the world trace to, which will in turn, cause all the fiat currencies of the world to suddenly become worthless, which is why the merchants on the earth will no longer be able to buy or sell when her first destruction comes,

A second angel followed and said, “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great,‘ which made all the nations drink the wine of wrath of her sexual immoralities.” (Revelation 14:8)

The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, (Revelation 18:15)

And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: The merchandise of gold and of silver and of precious stones and of pearls and of fine linen and of purple and of silk and of scarlet and of all thyine wood and of all manner vessels of ivory and of all manner vessels of most precious wood and of brass and of iron and of marble and cinnamon and odours and ointments and frankincense and wine and oil and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and of sheep, and of horses, and of chariots and of bodies and souls of men. And the fruits of the desire of thy soul are departed from thee, and all the fat and excellent things are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.  (Revelation 18:13-14)

And they cast dust on their heads and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, in which all that had ships in the sea were made rich by reason of her riches! for in one hour is she made desolate. (Revelation 18:19)

Which will begin the greatest famine the world has ever seen because no one will be able to buy or sell, and then, shortly after the first destruction of Vatican City, after God has let the kingdoms of the earth implode on their own because of their unrighteous financial dealings, will be the second coming of the Messiah, which will all happen in the same year, which is one prophetic day,

For this reason her plagues will come in a single day, death and mourning and famine, and she will be burned up with fire; for mighty is the Master God who has judged her. (Revelation 18:8)

Who after the sound of trumpets of his coming, will then pour the wine of the wrath of God upon the inhabitants of the earth, upon all who participated in her system of banks, which will be almost every person on earth, which are the 7 bowls of wrath of Revelation, which are 7 plagues, which will happen for 7 days,

he also will drink the wine of the wrath of God, poured full strength into the cup of his anger… (Revelation 14:10)

Then I looked and saw that the Temple in heaven, God’s Tabernacle, was thrown wide open. The seven angels who were holding the seven plagues came out of the Temple. They were clothed in spotless white linen with gold sashes across their chests (Revelation 15:5-6)

And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God, the One living to the aeons of the aeons. And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from His power; and no one was able to enter into the temple until the seven plagues of the seven angels were completed. (Revelation 15:7-8)

The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly, festering sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. (Revelation 16:2)

The second angel poured out his bowl on the sea, and it turned into blood like that of a dead person, and every living thing in the sea died. (Revelation 16:3)

The third angel poured out his bowl on the rivers and springs of water, and they became blood. (Revelation 16:4)

The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was allowed to scorch people with fire. (Revelation 16:8)

The fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and its kingdom was plunged into darkness. People gnawed their tongues in agony and cursed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, but they refused to repent of what they had done. (Revelation 16:10-11)

The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphratesand its water was dried up to prepare the way for the kings from the East. Then I saw three impure airflows that looked like frogs; they came out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. They are demonic airflows that perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day of God Almighty… And they assembled them at the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon. (Revelation 16:12-16)

And at the final plague, the kingdoms of the earth will literally by shattered like pottery, because the greatest earthquake the world has ever seen will cause all the cities of the world to collapse,

Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, and the ends of the earth your possession. You shall shatter them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel. (Psalm 2:8-9)

and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are shattered in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. (Revelation 2:27)

The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, “It is done!” Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since mankind has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake… the cities of the nations collapsed… Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. From the sky huge hailstones, each weighing about a hundred pounds, fell on people. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible. (Revelation 16:17-21)

shutterstock_1208386294

Which coincides with the destruction of the great statue Nebuchadnezzar saw in a dream, which was destroyed at the feet, where the 10 toes were,

As you looked on, a stone was cut out, not by human hands, and it struck the statue on its feet of iron and clay and broke them in pieces. Then the iron, the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold, were all broken in pieces and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, so that not a trace of them could be found. But the stone that struck the statue became a great mountain and filled the whole earth. (Daniel 2:34-35)

And that final plague will be the second portion of the destruction of Vatican City, the second “payback”, which is a punishment that comes from God, for that earthquake will cause Vatican City to become split in three,

The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. (Revelation 16:19)

With a mighty voice he shouted: “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every unclean airflow, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. (Revelation 18:2)

And then, after the world has suffered famine, then plague, then will come the greatest death the world has ever seen, for all the nations will be gathered by the angels the Messiah came with,

When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world… “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the aeonial fire prepared for the devil and his angels. (Matthew 25:31-41)

The Son of Man will send out his angels, and they will weed out of his kingdom everything that causes sin and all who practice lawlessness. (Matthew 13:41)

so as to support your hearts blameless in set-apartness before the God and our father, at the arrival of our Master Yeshuah Messiah with all his set-apart ones. (I Thessalonians 3:13)

Enoch, the seventh from Adam, prophesied about them: “See, the Master is coming with thousands upon thousands of his set-apart ones (Jude 1:14)

And God will provide rest for you who are being persecuted and also for us when the Master Yeshuah appears from heaven. He will come with his mighty angels (2 Thessalonians 1:7)

For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels… (Matthew 16:27)

If anyone is ashamed of me and my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, the Son of Man will be ashamed of them when he comes in his Father’s glory with the set-apart angels.” (Mark 8:38)

Yehovah thunders at the head of his army; his forces are beyond number, and mighty is the army that obeys his command. The day of Yehovah is great; it is dreadful. Who can endure it? (Joel 2:11)

And captured and taken to Israel to be judged, in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, which is outside the eastern wall of old Jerusalem,

I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land. (Joel 3:2)

Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him… to the wicked person, God says: “What right have you to recite my laws or take my covenant on your lips? You hate my instruction and cast my words behind you. When you see a thief, you join with him; you throw in your lot with adulterers. You use your mouth for evil and harness your tongue to deceit. You sit and testify against your brother and slander your own mother’s son. When you did these things and I kept silent, you thought I was exactly like you. But I now arraign you and set my accusations before you. (Psalm 50:3-21)

You will capture all your enemies. Your strong right hand will seize all who hate you. (Psalm 21:8)

So it will happen in that day, That Yehovah will punish the host of heaven on high, And the kings of the earth on earth. They will be gathered together Like prisoners in the dungeon, And will be confined in prison; And after many days they will be punished.
(Isaiah 24:21-22)

To then be destroyed, by being thrown in a lake of lava, which will form outside the southern wall of old Jerusalem, which is the Valley of Hinnom, which is Gehenna, for at the time the Messiah returns Mount Zion will form, and will flow with lava to the south to Negev and to the north to Jerusalem,

As I looked, thrones were placed, and the Ancient of Days took his seat; his clothing was white as snow, and the hair of his head like pure wool; his throne was fiery flames; its wheels were burning fire. A river of fire issued and came out from before him. Thousands upon thousands served him; ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. The court was seated, and the books were opened. (Daniel 7:9-10)

Son of man, set your face toward the south; preach against the south, and prophesy against the forest land in the Negev. Say to the forest of the Negev, Hear the word of Yehovah: Thus says the Master Yehovah, Behold, I will kindle a fire in you, and it shall devour every green tree in you and every dry tree. The blazing flame shall not be quenched… All flesh shall see that I Yehovah have kindled it; it shall not be quenched. (Ezekiel 20:46-48)

The blazing flame shall not be quenched, and all surfaces from south to north shall be scorched by it. All flesh shall see that I Yehovah have kindled it; it shall not be quenched. (Ezekiel 20:47-48)

…declares Yehovah, whose fire is in Zion, and whose furnace is in Jerusalem. (Isaiah 31:9)

And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind. (Isaiah 66:24)

And if your eye should cause you to stumble, cast it out; it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into Gehenna, where ‘their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’ (Mark 9:47-48)

to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples, to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron, to execute on them the judgment written!…(Psalm 149:7-9)

shutterstock_757852609 shutterstock_1192700248 shutterstock_1095886370 shutterstock_1192698769

Which is what the the throwing of the first and second beasts of Revelation “alive” into the lake of fire symbolizes, throwing the people into the lake of lava that these two beasts symbolize,

But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. (Revelation 19:20)

And as I looked, the beast was killed, and its body destroyed and given over to be burned with fire. (Daniel 7:11)

And the beast which was, and is not, even he is eighth… he goes unto destruction. (Revelation 17:11)

Which includes the destruction of the Roman pope, who will be judged by the Messiah himself, and then thrown into the lake of lava,

And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Master Yeshuah will overthrow with the airflow of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. (2 Thessalonians 2:8)

And because of the lawlessness of the earth in participating in the system of banks of Vatican City, and also many other abominations committed by the nations, after the famine, after the plagues, and after the death of many in the final punishment of the nations in the lake of lava, the earth will be reduced to very few survivors, those who did not participate in the system of banks, and the lame who were simply granted mercy,

I will make people more rare than fine gold, and mankind than the gold of Ophir. (Isaiah 13:12)

See, Yehovah is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants— it will be the same for priest as for people, for the master as for his servant, for the mistress as for her servant, for seller as for buyer, for borrower as for lender, for debtor as for creditor. The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. Yehovah has spoken this word. The earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the heavens languish with the earth. The earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws, violated the statutes and broken the aeonial covenant. Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left. (Isaiah 24:1-6)

“In that day,” declares Yehovah, “I will gather the lame; I will assemble the exiles and those I have brought to grief. I will make the lame my remnant, those driven away a strong nation. Yehovah will rule over them in Mount Zion from that day and aeonially. (Micah 4:6-7)
