When The Beast Arrives

The most common term for the Empire of Antichrist in the book of Revelation is “beast” where it appears some 36 times. Revelation picks up the term from Daniel 7 where the prophet Daniel uses it to portray the Gentile empires that would follow Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonian Empire.

Thus far in our studies of the Empire of Antichrist we have determined that the precise identity of the beast is the revived Ottoman Caliphate that fulfills Revelation 17:9-11 as Satan’s 8th and final empire.

What will the beast be like?

When the Caliphate returns after being dormant for 100 years, it may best be described as “ISIS on Steroids” except this time around, when the Jihad conquering begins in the Tribulation, the Ottoman Islamic State will be led by the unholy trinity of Satan, Antichrist and the False Prophet not Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self proclaimed leader of the ISIS Caliphate.

The UNHOLY TRINITY is described as follows,

13 And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs; 14 for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty.
Revelation 16:13-14

According to Daniel and Revelation the beast is unstoppable! Antichrist and his forces who will be powered by the enemy become so overwhelming they never experience defeat until crushed by Jesus at His Second Coming.

During the unstoppable wars in the Tribulation, the Ottoman Caliphate’s methodology will not have changed since its barbaric 500 year rule from 1453 to 1922.

The Ottoman rule began with genocide against the Romans in 1453 when they slaughtered 10’s of 1,000’s in it’s conquest of Constantinople and the Ottoman rule ended with genocide of the 1-million Armenian’s in the waning days of WWI. The Islamic Caliphate was purely satanic then and will be 7 times worse in the Tribulation!

The horrors the world will soon face is beyond comprehension as Antichrist assaults one nation after another beginning in the Middle East using hatred, enmity, rape, servitude, ethnic cleansing, jihad and genocide.

Islam is NOT the “religion of peace” as Obama/Biden and George Bush would falsely have us believe. That’s a sad attempt to cover the bloodshed commanded by the Quran.

Revelation 17 coins the religious system of Islam as the “MOTHER OF HARLOTS” which is released under the sovereignty of God to set up mankind’s judgment and fulfill Jesus’ prophecy in Mt. 24:21 of the worst period in history.

As a reminder of it’s evil nature, we see all these features prominently displayed in the genocide taking place in Africa today.

While much of the church thinks Antichrist is a man of peace who will rise from Europe, the spirit of Antichrist is already here on full display in the theatres like the Middle East and North Africa. And it’s not pretty.

So Why Study the Empire of Antichrist? What Difference Does it Make? 3 Reasons Why!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why it is Beneficial to study the meanings behind the 7 “beast images” and the Empire of Antichrist and the various heads and 10 horns found throughout Scripture?

We offer at least three reasons why it is beneficial to study the meanings and discover the proper interpretations of the main players in the end times and their geo-political trends for today.

First, these images give Bible-studying Christians an ability to accurately determine the “season” of the age in which we are living in right now.

For example, were Jews to study Daniel and accept the book of Revelation also as inspired Scripture, they would not be so blind to the coming holocaust of the Tribulation spoken about so vividly in Daniel.

The Jewish people are living on the verge of imminent disaster but an understanding of what the Word says of the last days may be all it takes for some to accept Jesus as their Messiah.

And an understanding of these topics better prepares the Christian to identify the “prophetic season.”

Second, a proper understanding of the beasts provides a bulwark against deception.

God’s clash with Antichrist and the beast is the major theme in the Book of Revelation and the beast’s blasphemous religious system led by the Quran and the enforcement of Sharia is its driving force.

Believers around the world need to wake up to the fact that Islam is also the most dangerous threat to the church today. One only needs to travel to the Middle East and North Africa to see for themselves. Where are all the Christians? Where are Christianity’s historic cultural sights? The slaughter is increasing!

The Last Days are characterized as deceptive and as a trap, and expressly so the last-day ruler and the Dragon (Satan). This time is truly treacherous. Our enemy is the father of lies and deception (John 8:44).

“The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie.”
2 Thessalonians 2:9

We are convinced that those deception times are already upon us today. Is Christendom ready? Are you?

And Third, not only is Turkey and the 10 kings relevant to our time today, but also Satan’s 7 Empires.

The visions of the world’s 7 empires apply to us today. How so?

All 7 of them, along with the 10 kings, will be in existence and on the world scene during the Last Days when Christ returns. That means they are here now and already rising to their destiny to become part of the beast. The prophet Daniel says that it will be,

“In the time of those kings, that the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed”
Daniel 2:44

This gives us all the more reason to sit up and be “on watch” of the movements surrounding Turkey, Syria. Iraq, Iran and Israel and the rapidly developing events of the Middle East before it becomes the “missile-east” in the Tribulation!

These are the days when our generation should be plugged in and watching as never before. Knowing and understanding the aspects of the Beast Empire gives believers stability in the last days.

God knew the relevance of Turkey, and how the accompanying geo-political events surrounding it’s rise would become front and center before the Rapture.

And the Lord knew the church would need discernment for interpreting the developing events to avoid confusion. So the Lord graciously gave us His prophetic Word to point us in the right direction.

Those who aren’t paying attention miss this connection and walk blindly through the end times and therefore will find themselves more vulnerable to deception.

What Does Revelation 13:15 Mean? Unlocking Prophetic Mysteries

 

 

 

 

Unlocking the Bible’s Greatest Prophetic Mysteries

What is the Image of the Beast Described in Revelation 13:15?

Few prophecies generate more wild speculation than the image of the beast that speaks!

The interpretation of the image that speaks and how it speaks is one of the topics we will decode this Tuesday related to the Empire of Antichrist.

Prior verses note that the False Prophet will be able to perform false miracles to deceive people (Revelation 13:13–14). Then the False Prophet oversees the construction of something that speaks and is identified as the Image of the Beast.

Is it possible to know what this image is? Not only does the image speak but it commands people to bow down and worship it. If people refuse to bow down and worship the Image they will be killed.

Telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
Revelation 13:14-15

The mandatory death sentence to those who refuse to bow and worship the image is a clear parallel to Nebuchadnezzar’s ruling in Daniel 3 that whoever refused to bow down and worship his image must be killed.

At that time, Daniel’s three friends refused to worship the image and were thrown into a white-hot furnace, but God delivered them (Daniel 3). Similarly, a remnant of faithful believers will refuse to bow down and worship the Image of the Beast in the Tribulation will be killed.

Nebuchadnezzar’s Image and the enforcement of mandatory worship in Daniel 3 is a picture that foreshadows the False Prophet’s image in Revelation 13:15.

They go together. Daniel 3 lays the foundation for helping us interpret and better understand Revelation 13:15.

Don’t Fear Bill Gates! You Can’t Have the Mark of the Beast Without the Beast!

Don’t Fear Bill Gates! You Can’t Have the Mark of the Beast Without the Beast!

Where’s the Beast?

I’ve often said that practical obedience to Christ today is more important than speculation about the mark of the beast tomorrow.

I’ve also suggested that COVID-19 may be a forerunner sign of the Tribulation Judgments, but I do not believe that COVID-19 is one of the plagues from the Book of Revelation.

I also don’t believe that a potential COVID-19 vaccine, replete with microchip is the mark of the beast.

Yet the events surrounding the coronavirus have demonstrated how quickly the status quo can be overturned and how dramatically the fortunes of nations can shift.

And what if COVID-19 is followed by a worldwide economic collapse, accompanied by plague and famine?

To say it again, I do not believe we are at that point. But I do believe that, in front of our eyes, we’re seeing how quickly the table can be set.

Despite the lofty aspirations of Bill Gates, believers today have nothing to fear about his vaccination plans being connected to the mark of the beast.

For starters, in Revelation, the “mark of the beast” has nothing to do with a medical procedure.

And contrary to some of the theories being batted around today, the “mark” is not at all something that could be accidentally taken.

Why? Because the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:16-18) is a mark that is closely tied to worshipping of the beast (Revelation13:12, 15; 19:20; 20:4).

Thus, the mark of the beast is taken as a symbol of rejecting Jesus Christ for devotion to the beast empire in the Tribulation.

Most importantly, the beast is not here yet!

No beast… no mark!

The beast in Revelation is Satan’s final empire that seeks to bring the world under its control and the beast marking system doesn’t begin until the middle of the Tribulation!

That’s a good way off from 2020.

Since the rapture occurs before the Tribulation, church-age believers will never see the mark of the beast because we will not be here! Hallelujah!

In this recent video, I discuss the two competing marking systems in the book of Revelation and answer two questions, “What really happens when you take the mark of the beast and what does it mean for Christians living in the last days.”

Satan’s Wrath, God’s Wrath And The Coming Beast

Satan’s Wrath, God’s Wrath And The Coming Beast

Who or What is The Beast of Revelation?

Looking Behind the Curtain

Satan’s wrath sits heavily upon humanity because he is the destroyer and he knows his time is short.

America is just beginning to bear the brunt and I’m not confident it will ever get better. Satan’s wrath is steeped in hatred against God and God’s children and especially Israel.

God’s wrathby contrast, is the ultimate expression of His absolute love for mankind.

To prepare for class this Tuesday, I want to look at the identity of this ferocious BEAST and discover some of the meaning behind it’s heavy portrait symbolism.

I hope it will spark your interest to study it more as it’s one of the largest topics in the book of Revelation.

When John first saw this imposing caricature, it must have been a stunner!

What Is the Seven-Headed Leopard Beast of Revelation 13?

The beast with seven heads and 10 horns introduced in Revelation 13 represents Satan’s eighth and final empire: The Turkey-led Ottoman Caliphate.

11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven.

Let’s take a closer look at a few of his key features to get a better understanding of the nature of the beast.

* It has authority, power, and a throne, which point to its being a political entity – 13:2.

* God points out its blasphemy 3 times in 8 verses indicating it’s deeply connected to a religious system in addition to being a political entity – 13:1,5-6

* It combines features of the beasts described in Daniel 7:2-8 showing that it’s a future empire in Satan’s line of anti-Semitic empires (Da. 7:17).

* It ascends “out of the sea” (13:1), which is symbolic of the turbulent masses of Gentile nations – Rev. 17:15

“Seven Heads and Ten Horns”
The key to understanding the “seven heads” of the beast is given in Revelation 17 which says the seven heads are symbolic of “seven kings,” or empires (Rev. 17:9,10).

So the seven heads of the beast of Revelation 13:1 represent Satan’s seven former empires designed to oppress the chosen people and dominate the land of Israel.

The seven heads represent Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, and the Ottoman Empire. One of these former empires will return as the eighth empire.

The ten horns of Revelation 13:1 are also explained in Revelation 17 in verse 12,

12 “The ten horns you saw are ten kings… they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 

Here we see that the ten horns are symbolic of ten kings that form themselves into an empire (beast) having one mind. This is precisely what occurs in the formation of a Caliphate.

Ten Muslim nations willingly surrender their sovereignty as independent kings to form something better and bigger than themselves aka the Islamic Caliphate.

After this empire is formed and established, Antichrist mysteriously appears as the 11th king and wrestles control of the Caliphate to be appointed its ruler or “Caliph” – Dan. 7:24-25.

From all this, we conclude that the seven headed, ten horned beast of Revelation 13 is a symbolic picture, from the imagination of God Himself, representing the coming eighth empire, the last of Satan’s mighty empires to destroy Israel.

The Turkey led Islamic Empire is resurrecting and coming back to life today! Out of the midst of the Middle East chaos the beast will suddenly appear, and the world will never be the same.
