Something I've always found curious.

Consider this image:

The texts claim Power was handed from The Beast to the Dragon, and One Day the Beast would Rise from the Sea and Reclaim its Power. Or so I think...

Looks to me like the Dragon and the Beast are as allies playing a Game.

What Secrets does the Prophet John Know?

Who Knows!?

Let's carry on, shall we?

The Beast from the sea is modelled on the beast which rise from the sea in Daniel ch7, which are all political powers.
It is described in the chapter as a world-dominating political power which persecutes the church;

So it should be easy to find. Once you have a world dominating politicaal power persecuting the church, that's the Beast.

The CCP... It is the infiltration of the CCP's communism that has led to the persecution of religion, disregard for basic moral values etc. even in the US.

Isn’t China sometimes referred to as the dragon and the image of coronavirus reminds me of the beast, with all those heads. And coronavirus is said to have come to us via a SEA food wet market.

What Secrets does the Prophet John Know?

Who Knows!?

The key is in the verse 22:9 "...I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers.."

You have to read the full thing in context though to see it. The angel (messenger) showing these things is none other than one of the main characters also. What this all is, is a street procession, like a parade, people in costume, actors. When he says "I am a fellow bondservant..." is when he lifts his mask to show that under the mask is the actor.


6He(angel) said to me, "These words are faithful and true. The Lord God of the spirits of the prophets sent his angel to show to his bondservants the things which must happen soon."

7"Behold, I(angel) come quickly. Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."

8Now I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who had shown me these things. 9He said to me, "See you don't do it! I(same angel) am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers, the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship God."

10He said to me, "Don't seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11He who acts unjustly, let him act unjustly still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him do righteousness still. He who is holy, let him be holy still."

12"Behold, I(same angel) come quickly. My reward is with me, to repay to each man according to his work. 13I(same angel) am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

Take special note that I have added to the book. Therefore according to verse 18, I am due to receive all the plagues. Note also that since I have not quoted the entirety of the Book of Revelation, I have removed a whole lot of it, therefore no tree of life or holy city for me.

Preachers and commentators would be wise to leave the whole thing alone. 22:18,19. It's an all or nothing proposition with no commentary allowed.




Let's carry on, shall we?

There is currently a not so subtle taking of sides against or for communism/globalism/socialism -- all driven by the infiltration of specter of CCP communism. There are those who believe the ones who refuse to renounce their allegiance to it or go to bed with the CCP will not make it through.

It seems like a no-brainer, yet you have Antifa and other groups begging for communism.

Lots of Americans do not see how much it has infiltrated the west, but it has been working in since mid-century last. Between schools and society, up is now down, and wrong is now right and people have a hard time seeing the truth right in front of them.

I suspect you will begin to see more and more wake up. Eight months ago most people didn't know what the CCP was even though it was heavily influencing their lives.

Makes sense, in the case of Lot....God and Satan wagered on him...I guess gambling being illegal is not one of gods rules.

That sounds like what is going on in the United States now.

Is there anything more associated with the Dragon than Leviathan?

The Church of Satan even has it ironically written in Hebrew on their goat boy sigil, not that they are relevant to anything.

Actually quoted as the Dragon that lives in the Sea in Isaiah.


27:1 - In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.


Revelation more specifically seems like a warning against an era of hysterical conviction amidst competing values. Crusades, Inquisitions, instances of viral madness. So many applicable editions throughout history.

A Lovecraftian time where Cthulhu (who also rises from the sea) spreads social madness. It holds its traction because this hysterical madness is written into societies way. The same memes that keep order are a double edge sword of lost perspective and empathy.

Through the veil of all the "noise" you can discern a beast, as viral as it is.

Now updated for cell phones.

I meant "persecuting the church all over the world". That's what the description in that chapter implies.

The Beast of the Sea usually identifies as the Roman Empire, and the Several heads it has symbolizes the Caesars that ended ruling it. It widely accepted that blasphemy being a name, the number of it, and the fact that the beast heals from a grave wound identifies with Emperor Nero(Niro) who persecuted, tortured an put to death early Judeo/ Christian Gnostics

As for the second beast given the authority by the first tl worship it image, the Vatican usually comes to mind. It is said to perform miracles, but calling down fire from the sky sounds a little too...jewish, almost too, too Jewish.

Plus cross reference Serpent of Old/Satan, with another reference that "Satan, fell like Thunder" might have to do with healthcare an meteorites, since it recurring pattern that meteors or comets usually cause plagues.
And the fact that sometime later, the Church would consider medicine akin to black magic.

All the while, Jesus the Love Doctor, the only pill one needs, too bad it a big pill swallow orally...imagine if it came in suppository form.

This medieval tapestry, La Bête de la Mer, is one piece of the Tapisserie de l’Apocalypse in Angers, France, and it illustrates a scene from the Book of Revelation. It shows the beast that comes “out of the sea” being given power and authority (symbolized by the staff) by the dragon who comes “out of the earth” (also called “the false prophet”) to direct the people of earth to worship the first beast, rather than God, and the beasts persecute those who do not worship the image of the beast. On the left stands St. John, thought to be the author of the Book of Revelation, holding a book.

All is permitted on earth. Yet some things should be refused, if you truly honor Life, then you must step up and refuse others casting their will upon you if you so chose.

Lot's fate was a harsh lesson each could stand to learn from, in our early Days, yet each failed to see it, save Lot himself.

Even The Lord himself failed to see the Truth, for he was still learning to Love.

It may as well start in the US as anywhere else. The persecution has to start somewhere.

Sure, but some "starts" may be false starts and not the real thing. I would prefer to wait unti the world-wide power and the world-wide persecution coincide before throwing around labels from Revelation. Some modern Christians are so eager to see the events of Revelation that they jump to judgement prematurely, so I'm reacting to that.

the Dragon, gives It's power to the beast that arises from Sea, the 2nd beast (from earth) teams up with the 1st beast from Sea ----> The 'cosmic / supernatural' Dragon is the Power & Authority for the AC/False Prophet team

thats my take, or else 'what i've learned' over the decades

the Dragon is also represented in our night sky as 'Drago' which spans over 1/3rd of the total year round, 360 degree panorama of Constellations and Stars of the celestial canopy surrounding planet Earth

on another level, the Dragon represents Satan/ Devil --->> after the Fall of Lucifer

the Dragon's 'seat of authority' is found in modern Turkey, according to history and prophecy
