The Beasts of "Revelation"
there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and
seven crowns upon his heads (the Satan); And his tail drew the third part
of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth (The third part of
angels followed Satan in his rebellion, at this time the heavenly ”sanctuary
was cast down and profaned” Dan.8:11):
and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to
devour her child as soon as it was born (parallelism: Satan was trying to
kill baby Jesus by king Herod right after He was born and Satan was trying to
kill Christian belief by severe prosecution of Christians right after
Christianity was born).
And she brought forth a man child (Jesus Christ and his doctrine), who was to
rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and
to his throne (resurrection of Jesus). And the
woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, to be
fed by them there a thousand two hundred and threescore days (from
606 till 1849 – the years of obscurantism of the little horn, the Christian
church was "under ground").
And there was war in heaven: Michael (Jesus Christ –see Who was Jesus before He came first time?) and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 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. (In 1849-50 Satan with his angels were thrown down to the earth).
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ (the heavenly sanctuary was cleansed and Jesus became the king of the heavenly kingdom); for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Therefore rejoice ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhibiters of the earth and of the sea! (The opening of the seals). For the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman (The opening of the 1st seal- The preparation for the antichrist had started. The fallen angels began to whisper to Blavatsky, Baily, Hall and others the New Age ideas), which brought forth the man child (Judaic and Christian churches).
the woman was given two wings of a great eagle (to
be carried by eagle wings means to be under protection of God. Look
Ex.19:4, Deut.32:11), that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where
she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the
serpent. (360 + 720+ 180 =1260
days =3,5 years of the government of Antichrist. An eagle wings can be also mean
that in the time of prosecution by Antichrist the church will be preserved only
in USA (eagle)).
And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the
woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood («waters»
in the Bible mean: a lot of people, from mouth of Satan – means: many
antichrist’s followers, who will prosecute the believers).
And the earth helped the woman, and the earth
opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his
mouth (all wicked will die).
the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of
her seed (i.e. after the thousand
years – we will discuss it later), which keep the
commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ».
the red dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns and
As we saw in the last lesson the beast with 7 heads already exists. It is NATO. After the opening of the 6-th seal (the great world destruction) NATO will pass the power to the 10 horns (world government of 10 – United Nations).
I …saw a beast rise up out of the sea (sea – nations, it is an
earthly government), having seven heads and ten horns,
and upon his horns ten crowns
(horn is a person- see p.4. Crown – symbol of authority. These are 10
individuals in power), and
upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard
(most European countries), and his feet were as the
feet of a bear (Russia), and his mouth as
the mouth of a lion (Great Britain): and
the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
And I saw one of
his heads as it were wounded to death (a one country will have
a worst condition after the passing planet X); and his
deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped
the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…
and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months (the
same time Daniel told about - 0,5 week of power of antichrist. That means the 10
horns will have crowns, or UN will be in power the same time as antichrist will
do). And it was given unto him to make war with the
saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and
tongues, and nations (UN is world government)» (13:1-7).
antichrist represented in Revelation as two
horn beast. He will demonstrate his power in the time of the government of 10
Thus, we have the woman – the true church of
God; the dragon with 7 heads, 10 horns and 7 diadems on his heads – Satan; the
beast with 7 heads, 10 horns and 10 crowns on his horns – NATO with UN; and the
beast with two horns – the antichrist. Another personage is the Whore of
chapter 17 the angel told John «I will shew unto thee
the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom
the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the
earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication... and I saw a woman
sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy,
having seven heads and ten horns.. (as you will see later there is
the parallelism- there is the
beast with 7 heads and 10 horns which we already saw – it is today
government of NATO and UN before all power (crowns) will be given to UN, before
the opening of the 6-th seal; and red dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns,
who is Satan.) And the woman was arrayed in purple and
scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of
abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name
BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I
saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the
martyrs of Jesus» (17:1-6)
«..The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues....
And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth» (15-18)
«...Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils...... and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.... Alas, alas that great city..., for in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster and all the company in ships … stood afar off, and cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, what city is like unto this great city! ... And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth» (chapter 18).
people think that Babylon in John's prophecy is real Babylon, which was on the
territory of modern Iraq, and it will be ostensibly revived by the end of time.
This point of view is far from the truth. Real Babylon of the 4th
century BC is called in the Bible «a golden cup in
the Lord’s hand» (Jer.51:7), while
Babylon of the last days is woman holding a golden cup in her hand.
The Prophecy says about Babylon that it is "mystery", that means: mankind will clearly realize what Babylon is only by the end of time, when she will seat on the beast with 7 heads and 10 horns. And just now, having all historical information, we can assert that Babylon is Roman Catholic church with the center in city of Vatican, who seats on the beast with 7 heads (NATO. Almost all Europe, the half of Canada and part of USA are catholic), and who is the only one church - "permanent observer" in UN (10 horns).
The red - Catholic countries, violet - Protestant, orange- Orthodox, green- Muslim. We see that all Europe (the beast with 7 heads) is Catholic.
gave us specific details about Babylon:
1) As we saw above, there in prophecies the image of a woman means: church. The “woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet” is True God’s Church. The woman clothed “in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations” is False church.
reigneth over the kings of the earth». Only
city of Rome (Vatican) ever ruled over the kings. Thus in 712 Roman
Church refused to recognize the new Eastern Roman emperor Philippikos (Philippicus,
Bardanes) because of his belief (Monothelitism). That caused the rebelion and in
713 the emperor was dethroned.
«The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the
woman sitteth» (17:9). Rome was always known, as the city of 7 hills:
“It is within the city of Rome, called the city of seven hills, that the
entire area of Vatican State proper is now confined” (*The Catholic
Encyclopedia, Thomas Nelson, 1976, “Rome”);
The prostitute Babylon is near water (all
the workers of the sea see smoke from her fire) –the sate Vatican located in
the city of Rome, on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and Tiber river;
5) Babylon is the center of arts, where «And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee..»(18:22). Rome (Vatican) has incomparable treasures of culture: the Sixtine Chapel with the frescos of Michelangelo, the works of Raphael, and the foremen of the Italian renaissance, one of the richest libraries of the world and others ancient treasures;
6) The prostitute Babylon is rich. It is widely known that Vatican is richest organization in the whole world;
7) About who if not about the Roman Catholic Church it is said: «for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived». Catholic church is worldwide church;
“in her was found the blood of prophets, and of
saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth” It is only Roman
Catholic Church who is guilty in the mass prosecution of saints.
Vatican coins of 1958,1959; funeral monument of pope John XXIII (1410-15AD)
Today Vatican is the spiritual instructor of the international union –UN, and thus influences the whole world.
The Holy See is the only religious body with permanent observer status at the United Nations. This position was granted in 1964 to Vatican state (The Vatican is considered to be a non-member State permanent observer on exactly the same status as Switzerland, which means that it has a seat in the General Assembly of UN).
After the opening of the 6-th seal all governments of the world will collapse and UN will take a control. For 3,5 years it will not demonstrate its power, it will be just a mechanism of regulation of the situation: the regulation of criminal activity, the work of reconstruction of cities. Later, as roman emperors in antiquity, UN will come to conclusion that for keeping peace in the world all nations have to be united under one religion, under one religious leader. This point already has been discussed in UN for a couple years.
to unite all religions under one – catholic- is impossible. In order to unite
all religions of the world there has to be a some common element for all
religions, there has to be no conflicts. Vatican doesn’t fit in this scenario:
for the long time of its existence it collected many conflicts with Jews,
protestants and Muslims. It has to be a new religion with a new religious leader
and new religious center. Only Jerusalem can be the center of a new religion,
because Jerusalem is holy site and for Jews, and for Muslims, and for
protestants, and for Catholics and for New agers.
UN wants to put the new world religious leader on the throne in the
temple of Jerusalem. That is why «the ten horns which
thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her
desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn
her with fire.; For God hath put in their hearts
to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give
their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of
God shall be fulfilled» (17:16-17).
somehow UN will manage to burn Vatican and right after that it will give the
power to the Antichrist. Jerusalem will become the world religious center, in
contradistinction to the out-of-date Catholic center in Vatican.
«…Shame hath covered our faces: for strangers are come into the sanctuaries of the Lord’s house. Wherefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will do judgment upon her (Babylon) graven images…» (Jer. 51:51).
«And arms shall stand on his (the Antichrist) part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate....» (Dan.11:31).
ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel
the prophet, stand in the holy place… Then let them which be in Judaea flee
into the mountains” ( Mat.24:15,16; Mark 13:14; Luke 21:20,21).
have blown the trumpet…
The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within… But they that
escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves of
the valleys (it is the same as “flee into the mountains”)…
They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror shall cover
them;… My face will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute
my secret place (the sanctuary): for the
robbers shall enter into it, and defile it” (Ezek.7:14-18,22).
As most prophecies of Old Testament which were given before the Babylonian invasion these prophecies also are built on the principle of parallelism, and they were true for that time and they will be true for the last days. The images of trumpets and cups (or bowls) of an anger given in these prophecies are the key for understanding the order when in the last days it will take place.
the prophecies clearly said that the Antichrist
will be in power for one week. He will
reach the power with 10 "horns". In the beginning of his 7-year's
government wars and criminal will disappear, antichrist will make a 7 years peace treaty with Jewish
peace treaty will probably include some points which will reunite both
religions: of Jews and of Muslims, therefore some concessions will be made
on the part of religious leaders by a sacrificing some of the God’s
commandments. In that time Vatican will be burned up and the temple in Jerusalem
will be built. After 3,5 years the
antichrist will break the treaty, will surround Jerusalem , pollute the
sanctuary by seating on the throne as God Himself. Some people will run from the
prosecution to the mountains. In the day of occupation of Jerusalem the
first trumpet will begin to sound
will be the beginning of the “great tribulation, such
as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be”
(Mat.24:21, Mark 13:19, Dan.12:1), it will continue “a
time, and times, and half a time” (Dan.12:7; persecution of the church
- Rev.12:14), the time of the power the antichrist - “half
of the week” (Dan.9:27), “forty and
two months” (of occupation of Jerusalem- Rev.13:5), or 1260
days of two prophets (Rev.11:3).
« For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name » (Jer.25:29)
the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it
first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of
God?” (1Pet.4:17). «Slay utterly old
and young… but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin
at my sanctuary» (Ezek.9:6). Thus, as the judgment was at first in
Heaven and after – on the Earth. It will be at first in Jerusalem and after on
all Earth. At first – in a church, after – in the world.
- the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up
2nd trumpet - the
third part of the sea became blood; and the third part of the sea creatures died
3rd trumpet - the
third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters,
because they were made bitter (Rev.8:10).
4th trumpet - the day
shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise (Rev.8:12).
5th trumpet- The power
over the bottomless pit is given to Satan, he (Rev.9:1, Isa.14:12) receives the
key of it and releases the locusts (these are the Satan’s creations whom
he and his angels created by genetic experimentations. These are the creations
the world mythology is talking about. These are the creatures who today
represent themselves as aliens from other planets). And
it was commanded to them that they should not hurt the grass or any tree; but
only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads (it’s
clear: they are not real locusts, but thinking creatures)… and their torment
will be as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And to them it was
given that they will not kill people, but they will tortured them for five
The 6th trumpet – a great war, in which 1/3 of the people will die. Strange warriors will take part in this war (Joel 2:1-10 and Rev.9:19). It is the army of Satan, demons and fallen angels - «the host of the high ones that are on high» (Isa.24:21), the so called “aliens”, space brothers from “Galaxy Federation”, whom New Agers communicate with today (about them - the last chapter).
