You are extremely out of line and you are making the true Christians look like fools. I strongly urge you to end this.
You haven't paid one ounce of attention to what the Bible actually says regarding the Beast or else you wouldn't be taking stabs in the dark due to
political bias and ignorance.
And as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, I do not appreciate you defaming the Name of our Lord by making a mockery of it.
The true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ will not have to debate regarding who is actually the whore of Babylon, who is the beast, who is the
dragon, who is the false prophet, who is the antichrist, when the end will come, how it will come to pass, or any other information that is prophetic
in nature (of course until all events have come to full fruition). PROPHECY BELONGS TO GOD. Do you think God will reveal different opinions to His
children? or does the Lord reveal Truth?
You will not need to debate with the world either about the identity of the antichrist or the beast because those who are deceived will never agree
IF you have any of His Spirit in you, you will understand that the only thing you have done with the last couple of your threads is make Christians
appear as fools in folly, political in nature, unloving of our fellow human beings and even our enemies by wildly and randomly proclaiming who might
be the Evil One.
If you had done your research, you would KNOW. It is written that he is that is wise should count the number of the beast, because it is the number
of a man
, and that number is 666.
The number itself is not the mark that people will receive and it is not a discussion of the chemical structure of carbon either because if that were
true then everyone already has the mark and all are doomed; which is completely and utterly illogical. BUT anyone who has the number of his NAME, or
the mark, or the very same PERSON whose name is that number; these are the ones who are evil.
That number is counted, as it is written. So therefore, one must actively count the number. But how do we need to count the number 666? If it must
be figured by wisdom, but yet easy enough for most of the world to recognize, even hundreds and hundreds of years ago (because the prophecy applied to
everyone from 2000 years ago and on; or else why would it be written that long ago? Because EVERYONE needed to know about it from that point on) -
then we need to find a man whose NAME equals 666 when counted. So we need a language whose letters have numerical equivalents. The most commonly
known is Latin. Most everyone understands Roman numerals. I'll go ahead and make the search easy on you. The name of the man, who as described in
Revelations, considers himself God, speaks great blasphemies against God, and sets himself up in a temple to be worshiped (and all the world wonders
after him and all the great leaders and kings go to meet him and even bow to him and kiss his hand as a Satanic form of worship) it is the Pope of the
catholic church; who has recently called protestantism and also secret societies, the "daughter" churches of Catholic origin (and catholic means
"universal" which is a pagan and satanic religion, which is the religion of what everyone is calling the "New World Order"). The official name of
the Pope is "Vicarivs Filii Dei" which means "The Vicar of the Son of God" or "The One who sits in the place of the Son of God" -- which we know
is impossible because Jesus Christ is the King of Kings of Heaven and Earth, He is the Lord of Lords, and He is ALIVE AND WELL and needs not that any
should sit in HIS SEAT. IF you count the number of the pope's name, you will find, understanding that any letters without a given numeric value are
counted as "zero" that his name adds up to six hundred, three-score (a score is 20 and the number of the score is the number by which it is
multiplied, therefore, three-score is 60), and six. Six hundred and sixty and six is 666. This is the number of a man.
The Beast is the world system. The Whore of Babylon is the catholic church. The antichrist is the pope, or more accurately, any man with the title
"Vicarivs Filii Dei". The false prophet is the image of the beast; the image of the world system is the United States of America (its government).
The government will legislate the worship of the pope; but many will not recognize that because they don't know what the worship of the pope is.
Worship of the pope is recognizing his mark. The catholic church IN PUBLIC has stated what that mark is.
Look up "Ecumenical mark of her ecclesiastical authority". That mark is Sunday.
Those who call Sunday the Lord's day are unwittingly accepting that mark.
IT IS WRITTEN that the Sabbath day is the mark of God's children.
Search "blue laws". The USA is legislating a "secular rest" on Sunday. Pray for wisdom.
