First Beast of Revelation 13

beast_sea
In the book of Revelation chapter 13 we find two beasts. The first beast is a continuation of what the book of Daniel had already revealed in the dream of king Nebuchadnezzar with image that is found Daniel 2; 7.
Daniel defined four great kingdoms that would take place before the kingdom of God would destroy it. The last kingdom would go through a series of changes as the great controversy would continue to the end. The last nation mentioned would be the kingdom that would try and destroy the man child Jesus, they would help the Jews hang Jesus on the tree, and then they would hunt down and kill the children of God starting with the apostles till the end of time when Christ destroys Rome and her church that deceived the nations. Rome fulfills all the prophecies that the Lord warns us about in His Word. Taking a look real fast at Daniel 2 and 7 we can see…
The head of gold in Daniel 2, the lion of Daniel 7, was the empire of Babylon. under Nebuchanezzar, which this kingdom of Babylon was mighty and strong like a lion and had wings of an eagle representing this beast’s swiftness fierce lion like abilities; and they used the lion as a symbol.
Next, the chest of silver in Daniel 2, the bear of Daniel 7, was the Medo-Persian Empire.
Like a bear, their army was huge, which has been said up to 1.5 million people, and they
overwhelmed their enemies with their size.
Next, the waist of brass in Daniel 2, the leopard of Daniel 7, was the Grecian Empire.
Alexander the Great and his Grecian army were smaller, so they were  able to move swiftly like a leopard and were agile in their battles which destroyed their enemies.
Next, you have the legs of iron in Daniel 2, the dreadful beast of Daniel 7, is the Roman Empire, which will transition into the Roman Catholic Church empire.
“Out of the ruins of political Rome, arose the great moral Empire in the ‘giant form’ of the Roman Church.”–A.C. Flick, The Rise of the Mediaeval Church, 1909, p. 150.
Pope Pius IX, in his “Discorsi” (I., p. 253), said: “The Caesar who now addresses you, and to whom alone are obedience and fidelity due.”
This Roman beast, again, it was in power during Jesus’ ministry and in power when John wrote Revelation on the Isle of Patmos where Rome sent him for the service of Christ John was involved with. The Roman Empire could not kill John with the pot of oil the place him in so they sent him to exile on Patmos as a prisoner. Then, Pagan Rome collapsed internally, and then army after army attacked it, resulting in the Roman Emperor being divided 476 A.D. The 10 toes of Daniel 2, the 10 horns of Daniel 7, was the divided Roman Empire.  It then split into 10 civil kingdoms, symbolized by the 10 toes and the 10 horns, which would reflect the end time kingdoms that the Roman Catholic Church would rule over in the end called “The Club of Rome”.
Adaptive Model of the Global World System
 “The Club [of Rome] had its beginnings in April of 1968, when leaders from ten different countries gathered in Rome…The organization claims to have the solutions for world peace and prosperity…The Club of Rome has been charged with the task of overseeing the regionalizaton and unification of the entire world…
“The Club’s findings and recommendations are published from time to time in special, highly confidential reports, which are sent to the power-elite to be implemented. On 17 September 1973 the Club released one such report, entitled Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System… The document reveals that the Club has divided the world into ten political/ economic regions, which it refers to as ‘kingdoms.'”
Biblical prophecy clearly did state…
Revelation 17:12, “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.”
The Ten Kingdoms of the New World Government
Kingdom 1: Canada and the United States of America
Kingdom 2: European Union – Western Europe
Kingdom 3: Japan
Kingdom 4: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Israel and Pacific Islands
Kingdom 5: Eastern Europe
Kingdom 6: Latin America – Mexico, Central and South America
Kingdom 7: North Africa and the Middle East (Moslems)
Kingdom 8: Central Africa
Kingdom 9: South and Southeast Asia
Kingdom 10: Central Asia
Next, The iron/clay feet of Daniel 2, the Little Horn of Daniel 7, is the Roman Catholic Church and the little horn with would speak great words against the most high God, which we know that their are two major ways to blaspheme God:
1. When a man claims to be God when He is just a man.
Does the Vatican declare the Pope to be a god?
“To make war against the Pope is to make war against God, seeing the Pope is God, and God is the Pope.” -Moreri’s History. (Louis Moréri (25 March 1643 – 10 July 1680) was a French priest and encyclopedist.)
2. When a man claims to have power to forgive men of their sins when only God can.
Mark 2:5-7 – When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee. But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, Why doth this [man] thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?
Note: Jesus could forgive sins because He was God! The Pope is just a man and has not the power to forgive sins.
But the Vatican says, “This judicial authority will even include the power to forgive sin.” [The Catholic Encyclopaedia Vol xii, article ‘Pope’ pg 265]
“Don’t go to God for forgiveness of sins, come to me.” -Pope John Paul II, LA Times, 12-12-1984
Next, the Popes of the Roman Catholic Church rose to power and caused three of the civil kingdoms to be plucked up as (the Heruli, Ostrogoths and Vandals) to be plucked out. – Daniel 7.
Daniel 2 tells us that in the days of those kingdoms, God would establish his own kingdom.
During the reign of the Roman Empire, Jesus started to setup His kingdom, which expanded quickly, even though Satan used the Roman Empire to try to wipe it out man times by killing the commandment keeping saints of God.
 “That the Church of Rome has shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed among mankind, will be questioned by no Protestant who has a competent knowledge of history . . . It is impossible to form a complete conception of the multitude of her victims, and it is quite certain that no powers of imagination can adequately realize their sufferings.”–W. E. H. Lecky, History of the Rise and Influence of the Spirit of Rationalism in Europe, vol. 2, p. 32, 1910 edition. (An excellent though lengthy article describing in detail the right of the Roman Catholic Church to do this, will be found in The Catholic Encyclopedia, vol. 12, p. 266.)
Daniel 2 tells us that God’s kingdom would grow into a great mountain, and this ‘uncut stone‘ would destroy the last kingdom of Rome, at the end of time.
Daniel 2:44-45 – And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, [but] it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream [is] certain, and the interpretation thereof sure.
Revelation 18 confirms that Babylon (Rome) will be destroyed with a great millstone. Only God can destroy Satan’s kingdom with His second coming. Does history show that the Roman Empire and it’s church to be the modern day Babylon? Seeing the following quotes…
“The penetration of the religion of Babylon became so general and well known that Rome was called the ‘New Babylon.'” -Faith of our fathers 1917 ed. Cardinal Gibbons, p. 106
“In order to attach to Christianity great attraction in the eyes of the nobility, the priests adopted the outer garments and adornments which were used in pagan cults.” -Life of Constantine, Eusabius, cited in Altai-Nimalaya, p. 94
“The Church did everything it could to stamp out such ‘pagan’ rites, but had to capitualet and allow the rites to continue with only the name of the local diety changed to some Christian saint’s name.” -Religious Tradition and Myth. Dr. Edwin Goodenough, Professor of Religion, Harvard University. p. 56, 57
In Stanley’s History, page 40: “The popes filled the place of the vacant emperors at Rome, inheriting their power, their prestige, and their titles from PAGANISM.”
So, as histroy is clearly presented here we can see now that after reading Daniel 2; 7, the book of Revelation continues with the Roman beast. The prophecies of Daniel and Revelation both declare that Rome is the last beast. Let us now begin with Revelation 13:1…
Revelation 13:1, ″And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, the beast having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns.”
Question, what does the bible say about numbers, sea, heads, horns and crowns. A. First, the number seven means perfection or the end of something. When 7 is over then you have the coming of Jesus. You have 7 seals, 7 churches, 7 trumpets, 7 stars, and 7 last plagues. They all end with the coming of Jesus Christ.
SEA, WATER = people, multitude, nations, tongues
Scriptural facts:
Revelation 17:15, “The water which thou sawest where the whore sitteth, are people, multitudes, nations and tongues.”
In Bible prophecy water (sea) means people, multitudes, nations and tongues. Now what about heads?
2. HEADS= major powers, rulers, governments, and mountains.
Strong’s concordance:
3735orosor’-os
probably from an obsolete oro (to rise or “rear”;
perhaps akin to 142;
compare 3 a mountain (as lifting itself above the plain):
-hill, mount(-ain).
Scriptural facts:
Daniel 7:6; 8, “After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. Therefore the he goat waxed very great: and when he was strong, the great horn was broken; and for it came up four notable ones toward the four winds of heaven.”
Daniel 8:22, “Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.”
Revelation 17:3; 10, “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.”
Strong’s concordance:
3735 orosor’-os
probably from an obsolete oro (to rise or “rear”;
perhaps akin to 142;
compare 3 a mountain (as lifting itself above the plain):
-hill, mount(-ain).
Revelation 17:9, “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”
The 7 heads are 7 mountains which the woman sitteth.
Fact:
Documented Roman Catholic source states
“It is within the city of Rome, called The City on Seven Hills, that the entire area of Vatican State Proper is now confined” The Catholic Encyclopedia, p. 529.
What are the seven hills of Rome? “Rome is known to be built upon seven hills. Rome was said to have been founded when Romulus and Remus, twin sons of Mars, ended up at the foot of the hill Palatine and founded the city. The other six hills are Capitoline (the seat of government), Quirinal, Viminal, Esquiline, Caelian, and Aventine.” – Geography.about.com
ENCYCLOPÆDIA BRITANNICA
Seven Hills of Rome “group of hills on or about which the ancient city of Rome was built. The original city of Romulus was built upon Palatine Hill (Latin: Mons Palatinus). The other hills are the Capitoline, Quirinal, Viminal, Esquiline, Caelian, and Aventine (known respectively in Latin as the Mons Capitolinus, Mons Quirinalis, Mons Viminalis, Mons Esquilinus, Mons Caelius, and Mons Aventinus).” -http://www.britannica.com/seo/s/seven-hills-of-rome
So, it is the Vatican who is confined within the seven hills. This is where the seat of satan is located. Revelation 2:13.
3. 10 HORNS = power, strength.
Scriptural facts:
Daniel 8:22, “Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power.”
Psalms 89:17; 24, “For thou art the glory of their strength: and in thy favour our horn shall be exalted.”
So horns are a sign of power, strength.
What about crowns?
5. CROWNS = kingship, victory.
Scriptural facts:
James 1:12, “Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.”
Understanding Revelation 13:1:
The nation (beast) Rome rose up to power in a part of the world in a period of time where there were peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. Europe was heavily populated in that time period, but on the other side of the planet where the Americas were located, along with Canada and such, it was not so populated. This is where we would have the second beast rise to power out of the earth that we find in Revelation 13:11. It would look like and act like the beast of Rome, which would give help to the beast that received a “deadly wound”. It would have an appearance or a form of professed Godliness, but would be as dead bones in side. This is where the false prophet rises to power through as a collective body of believers in Christ, but they have no corresponding works with their lip service. You will also see church and state united as you did the Roman beast and church. This is so that the church can enforce their beliefs on others even though it is a false Christianity, and the Bible says they will kill the saints of God like in the dark ages (Revelation 20:4).
Now, getting back to the first beast of Rome; the 7 heads are 7 different nations throughout the world’s history that our Lord Jesus Christ is warning us about as He stated in the book of Daniel. The first four are given to us in Daniel and Revelation finishes it, as follow:
a. Babylon
b. Medo-Persia
c. Greece
d. Rome
e. Roman Catholic Church (Vatican city, Rome), – persecuting power, Dark Ages (538AD – 1798AD).
f. Roman Catholic Church received a deadly wound in 1798 (pope captured then died)
g. Roman Catholic Church revived- Vatican II, ( 1929) church & state unite again
Revelation 17:12, “And the ten horns which thou sawest are TEN KINGS, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast”.
In today’s world, Satan has changed the titles, names and meanings of words. It is his way to try and cause confusion. What do I mean by this? You have terms like: kings & kingdoms. In today’s world these words have changed to: presidents & nations. It is just like the title of the Caesars, the title of Caesar has been given to the Pope. Taken from Pope Pius IX, in his “Discorsi” (I., p. 253), said: “The Caesar who now addresses you, and to whom alone are obedience and fidelity due.”
When looking into the ten kingdoms (nations), kings (presidents) or governments of today, the Vatican is at the head of all this, just as the prophecy declares would happen. The antichrist (pope) is working against God. The Antichrist is a part of this system, he is in fact the head and is the right arm to the false gospel. This is why you see ambassadors of the Vatican going to all these countries around the globe, which if they do not bow a knee to Baal/Pope, they will give an account for it. The second beast (America) who is the police of the world, is doing the dirty work of Rome (the first beast). Now the question is: what are the ten kingdoms that we find from the club of Rome?
The Ten Kingdoms of the New World Government
Kingdom 1: Canada and the United States of America
Kingdom 2: European Union – Western Europe
Kingdom 3: Japan
Kingdom 4: Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Israel and Pacific Islands
Kingdom 5: Eastern Europe
Kingdom 6: Latin America – Mexico, Central and South America
Kingdom 7: North Africa and the Middle East (Moslems)
Kingdom 8: Central Africa
Kingdom 9: South and Southeast Asia
Kingdom 10: Central Asia
Adaptive Model of the Global World System
“The Club [of Rome] had its beginnings in April of 1968, when leaders from ten different countries gathered in Rome…The organization claims to have the solutions for world peace and prosperity…The Club of Rome has been charged with the task of overseeing the regionalizaton and unification of the entire world…
“The Club’s findings and recommendations are published from time to time in special, highly confidential reports, which are sent to the power-elite to be implemented. On 17 September 1973 the Club released one such report, entitled Regionalized and Adaptive Model of the Global World System… The document reveals that the Club has divided the world into ten political/ economic regions, which it refers to as ‘kingdoms.’”
It is perfectly clear that both history and Bible confirm that Rome to be the 1st beast of Revelation 13:1.
