Well, here's a topic i know a bit about from my years of studying prophecy.
remember the beast is being ridden by babylon, mother of harlots, etc.
the key here is to realize revelation is a continuation of older prophecies from the old testament.
particularly from the book of daniel.
in daniel's opening chapter, a dream is recounted in which a tall statue is seen. the statue is composed of various metals. the head is gold
(representing the babylonian empire), the shoulders are silver (representing the medo-persian empire), the belly and groin is bronze (representing the
greek empire) and the legs are iron (the roman empire). finally the toes are a mix of iron and clay. this statue is 666 cubits high. why is that
relevant? it's a picture of the world's empires thru out history, with the final empire represented by toes of iron and clay mixed.
the iron and clay mix is an empire composed in great part from the iron empire, which was rome. so it's a roman centered empire, characterized as
part of the babylonian system. by the time it gets to the days of revelation's prophecies, the toes of iron and clay (10 in number) have been in
charge of the planet since the days of the roman empire. the empire that rises out of the roman empire, represented by the ten toes in daniel (ten
horns in revelation), is the holy roman empire. this is the beast that was, is not, yet is. why? well everyone thinks it's no longer in charge.
wrongo. the holy roman empire still rules the world. it's involved in everything, every new regime, every new war, every new dictatorship, it's in
charge. people think it lost control back at the beginning of the enlightenment. not so.
the people who started the enlightenment were all catholic professors. lol atheism is a holy roman empire creation. the fact most people think all
the ancient texts are lies and fairy tales, is also a holy roman empire creation. they started and supported hitler, stalin, mao, etc. they have the
accumulated wealth and power, of every country on the planet, for the last 2000+ years. and if you count the power and wealth they inherited from
previous empires, that makes them the singlemost wealthy and powerful organization in the history of the planet.
