The book of Revelation is chock full of testimony given by Jesus, through an angel to John. It has been pertinent since His resurrection, when the
last days started.
- Revelation 1-3: Letters to the churches, describing the issues that need correction.
- Revelation 4: Describes the throne of God.
- Revelation 5: Describes the book with the seven seals. Jesus is the only one worthy of opening it.
- Revelation 6: A summary of the seven sixth and the happenings surrounding them.
- Revelation 7: A summary of heaven after the second coming, of those that made it through the great tribulation.
- Revelation 8-11: A summary of the seventh seal opening and the seven last trumpets.
- Revelation 12: Describes the fall of Lucifer and his many attempts to stamp out God's people.
- Revelation 13: Parallels with Daniel 2, 7 and 8 describing the origin and identities of the two beasts of end time prophecy, the beast of the
sea and the beast of the earth (expounded below). This is coalescing right now, the beast powers are finalizing their plan.
- Revelation 14: Describes what is to happen shortly. The mark of the beast is implemented and God declares that Babylon has fallen and that His
wrath is to come.
- Revelation 15: The seven last plagues are prepared, to pour out the wrath of God on the earth.
- Revelation 16: Describes the seven last plagues.
- Revelation 17: Goes into more detail about the beast of the sea and how to identify who it is.
- Revelation 18: Describes the deeds and destruction of the beast/Babylon.
- Revelation 19: A summary of events in heaven surrounding the second coming.
- Revelation 20: Describes the thousand year reign of Christ and judgment afterward.
- Revelation 21: Describes the new heaven and the new earth, the new Jerusalem.
- Revelation 22: Continues the description from book 21. A last warning to right yourself because time is short. Jesus reiterates His authority and
the urgency of His message.
It's important to note that Revelation covers past, present and future events. Often times past events are repeated multiple times in history. For
instance, the persecution of Christians in the Dark Ages, the persecution of Christians at the end time when there is a death decree.
Let's expound on Daniel 2, 7, 8 and Revelation 13, concerning the beasts.
Nebuchadnezzar's dream consisted of a statue, which Daniel interpreted as:
- Babylon - Head of gold
- Medo-Persia - Breast and arms of silver
- Greece - Belly and thighs of brass
- Rome - Legs of iron
- Divided Rome - Feet of iron and clay
Iron and clay don't mix, signifying that Rome would divide and never combine again. If you know history, Europe tried intermarriage and wars to bring
kingdoms together, but it never happened.
The last part of the dream is a stone from God that crushes the statue to dust. It's a symbol of the wrath of God, which destroys Babylon at the end
- Babylon - Lion with eagle's wings (speed)
- Medo-Persia - Bear raised up on one side (imbalance of power; Persia the greater) with three ribs in its mouth (Lydia, Egypt, Babylon having been
- Greece - Leopard with four wings (speed), four heads (the four generals to succeed Alexander were Cassander, Ptolemy, Antigonus and Seleucus)
- Rome - Terrible beast with iron teeth, ten horns (divided Rome)
The ten horns represent the divided kingdoms of Rome, which would go on to become the countries of modern-day Europe. Three of the ten kingdoms would
be plucked out by the roots, by the little horn.
- Anglo-Saxons - English
- Suevis - Portuguese
- Franks - French
- Burgundis - Swiss
- Alamanni - Germans
- Visigoths - Spanish
- Lombards - Italians
- Vandals - Plucked by the little horn
- Ostrogoths - Plucked by the little horn
- Heruli - Plucked by the little horn
Daniel has a vision.
- Ram - One horn higher than the other - Medo-Persia
- He-goat - Greece, subsequently four horns of the he-goat - the four generals that came out of Greece.
- Rome and subsequently the little horn came out of Greece, as shown in Daniel 8.
Beast of the sea (rose up from the then known populated world; multitudes, peoples) = the little horn
Beast of the earth (rose up from an unpopulated area of the world; opposite of multitudes, peoples)
From here it doesn't take much to come to conclusions as to who the beast of the sea is, because it's described quite well in Daniel and Revelation.
The beast of the earth, which exercises the power of the beast of the sea, should be apparent.
Revelation is relevant today more than ever as it lays the groundwork and description for what is happening right now or on the verge of happening in
these end times.
- Most of the reformers agreed on what I just laid out for you above.
- The beast of the sea is none other than papal Rome, the only entity that seeks to combine church and state and exert its power over the world.
- The beast of the earth is none other than the United States, which is helping to facilitate the plan.
- Whether you receive the mark of the beast or the seal of God is determined by who you worship and on what day.
- At the center of this is God's law, which was changed by the beast of the sea and is their self-declared "mark".
- Nowhere in the Bible does it say to worship God on Sunday. God said, "Remember, the seventh day...", the only day of worship, the
- Sunday law is already in the early stages of being enforced. It's not official yet, but many countries are enforcing Sunday as a day of rest,
under the guise of the virus. Right now a half a dozen countries or more are enforcing Sunday.
- The pope is pushing Sunday rest/false sabbath under the guise of climate change and a need for a day of rest for the "common good".
Don't believe a word I say, check it out for yourself. Scripture is right there for you to read and discern. Current events are right there for you
to see. News articles galore about Sunday rest, plus articles written by the Pope himself. Even if you don't believe it, when you see it made
official, you will know.
