1 And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten crowns, and on his heads were blasphemous names. 2 And the beast that I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne, and great authority.
The dragon Satan continues his warfare in the church of God and now different earthly kingdoms join the devil. The ancient world was superstitious believing in giant sea monsters and the drawing area on the ancient maps of the old world is proof of their superstitions. To understand the book of Revelation knowledge of the book of Daniel is very helpful. A beast is a symbol of an empire or nation, many empires have existed all over earth’s history but only a handful ever dealt with God’s people within biblical history. The Greek empire the Lepard, the Medo-Persian empire the bear, and the lion the Babylonian empire. These 3 are written about in Revelation 13:1-2 and Daniel 7. The Roman empire is a mix of all, cause it has an influence on all, so the combination of all beastly animals. Israel lives in captivity of three of the empire. The Jewish nation was living under Roman rule so not y, of captivity, the Romans live and worship however or whoever they wish, they just had to pay Rome taxes. Out of all empires that exist, only one was and is the power that is religious but it is a wolf in sheep clothing. That is why the beast has blasphemous names, it is a church that preaches lies about using God’s name to do so. Only one religious church has had empire power and still has government state-like power. I tell people the Holy Roman Church is only the Roman empire baptized and only took its sun worship images and turn them into what is to look like holy worship of Christ. To prove so, the Vatican city the capital of the Roman Church as 26 Embassies that represent different government powers of 26 countries, and the only representative the Roman Catholics have is the churches all over the world. The Roman Catholic church doesn’t have statements, emperors, kings, queens, or presidents to do its business, but the Pope, bishops, and priests that tradition is over God’s law. Jesus was accused of blasphemy by the false religious leader during His earthly ministry and it was of their false blasphemy accusation Jesus was executed at the cross.
Matthew 26:63 But Jesus kept silent. And the high priest said to Him, “I place You under oath by the living God, to tell us whether You are the Christ, the Son of God.” 64 Jesus said to him, “You have said it yourself. But I tell you, from now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of power, and coming on the clouds of heaven.” 65 Then the high priest tore his robes and said, “He has blasphemed! What further need do we have of witnesses? See, you have now heard the blasphemy; 66 what do you think?” They answered, “He deserves death!”
If there is any church or person who commits blasphemy it is the man, the title of the Pope, Vicarius Filii Dei. Just like the religion all its holy books and service should be done in the Aramaic language, the official Roman catholic official language is Latin and the Pope is given the title of Vicarius Filii Dei which translates into English as Representative of the Son of God. Since the Pope is given this title, He feels he has the authority to changes God’s word or any of the practice the Lord has desire His children to do, to change at any time as the Pope sees fit. In 2015 something historical happens that is a part of church history and American history. In the Pope’s speech, he said America should be more friendly for foreigners but Vatican CIty itself has a wall around it, he spoke on climate change and say changes but be done when the earth weather is always been unpredictable, I mean we do live in a sinful world that is suffering and waiting for sin to go away.
Romans 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
The earth is in its final stages and the beginning of Jesus Christ returns. Time to read your Bible and see the identity marks and sign of God and those of the devil and not to be a trap in false teachings only live and love how the Lord asks of you and I. God bless you all, the Lord Jesus loves you and so do I, Samuel H.
Daniel 7:7 After this I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, [I saw] a fourth beast (the Roman Empire), terrible and extremely strong; and it had huge iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that came before it, and it had ten horns (ten kings). 8 While I was considering the horns, behold, there came up among them another horn, a little one, and three of the first horns were pulled up by the roots before it; and behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth boasting of great things.
