THE PROPHETIC SCENARIO
Seven Heads, 10 Crowns
The nature of the Beast
Luke 3: 1
Jesus apprehended and called me in the 1930's, I have never found or does it exist in Him, the capacity to hate another human being. Without question, "God is Love". He has revealed His quality of love, completely, in His Son 'Jesus'. He so loved corruptible Mankind that He gave His only begotten Son to redeem us.
I can not find any hate in Jesus who asked forgiveness for His murderers while the nails are still pinning Him to the Cross. If our goal is to love mankind any less than this, we are liars, have never known Him, and the truth is not in us. God is love and He, by nature, must love absolutely. Although true, this is sometimes hard to handle. It does not jade or eliminate the necessity for jurisprudence and the verdicts of criminal justice.
This creates the ultimate oxymoron, Jesus, full of grace and tender mercies, had a hate-love with Mankind. In that He is omnipotent and love absolutely then, His 'hatred' had to be absolute.
It is required to know Him as 'love' necessitates that I know 'what it is' that He loathes.
Read: Admonition "what Is it?" part 1
"Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, Herod being tetrarch of Galilee, his brother Philip tetrarch of Iturea and the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene, Annas and Caiaphas being high being high priests, the word of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness."
This is more than a record of seven ruling dignitaries, in power, when John the Baptist, the forerunner, and Jesus of Nazareth, The Son of God, Anointed Redeemer of the World began their ministry. It was under this, adversarial mutated, system that the Word of God came to John who cried out, 'Make straight the way of the Lord!' 'Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! ' "Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!"
Caesar, the god-king of the Roman Empire, with his retinue of political and religious dignitaries sum up to seven heads. The two religious heads and what they represent, utilize the political heads for power. They became part of and ride the Beast to whom they submitted. This is reflected in their response when Pilate, at the trial of Jesus, defined his own question; 'What is truth'? There is no definition of Truth greater than; 'I find no fault in Him at all'. Only Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life, fulfills this definition. 'Satan had nothing in Him.' On hearing Truth defined they cried. "Give us Barabbas", tantamount to saying, "Give us 'the lie'" (2Thess. 2:3-11) "We have no king but Caesar!" John 19:15
Prophetically, these seven Heads, with the 10 crowns symbolize total domination, describing the nature of the Beast of the Apocalypse; a mixture of politics and religion with every Nation subservient, excepting those whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life.
The antichrist system is made up of a mixture of politics and religion so deceptive that the whole world will bow to it with awe and wonder. According to intellectual expertise and human rational this, short-lived, system will become the, Way the truth and the life.
Recently I found a photo of myself, taken over 85 years ago. When I look in the mirror, comparing myself with the picture, I see no recognizable features. Nevertheless, I am still, irrevocably, connected to the infant imaged in the picture. Likewise, there is a prophetic, inherent relationship in the unfolding continuity of world history. A good memory, with age, has positive assets. However, it has a negative side in the animosity experienced when communicating the interconnection between events. We can be so preoccupied that destiny-effecting events can pass unnoticed.
As we swiftly pass through the decades of time, there is a tendency to forget humanities link to its progenitors, Adam and Eve. The primary evil of the doctrine of Evolution is its, futile, attempt to destroy the genetic link between the cause of sin and The, Son of Man, 'Jesus' the only solution.
The root cause of all the woes of Mankind results from the disobedience of imbibing in the mixture of the tree of death. The cup, of the appetite, for mixture, is full and Mankind has reached the gluttony stage. The Day of the Lord is at hand!
"Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision." Joel 3:14
The mixture sought and achieved:
Seeds of the past now reaped
Reference: The international symposium of world religions
Event: February 1-6, 1976 "Islamic Christian Dialog"
Place: "Tripoli, Libyan Arab Republic"
Direct quote: "By invitation extended by the Libyan Arab Republic and the Vatican, Muslim and Christian thinkers from most of the countries of the world participated, Observers from among Muslim 'U'lemas and the Christian Clergy of the Catholic, Greek Orthodox and the Protestant Churches attended the Seminar together with thinkers, politicians, pressmen and men of information Media who came from more than sixty Countries of the World. 24 Resolutions and Recommendations were agreed upon."
Resolution #2: Both sides honor all Prophets and Apostles in all revealed Religions and denounce discrediting them or dare to disgrace their eminent position, for such an act is a protest against the will of God who gave them their mission.
Resolution #24: "The two parties with great esteem and consideration, greet Mu'ammar al Gatafi, chairman of the Revolutionary Command Council who patronized this symposium and positively participated in its discussions. His deep concern in the symposium greatly contributed to its success." (end of quote)
Resolution # 2 places Jesus and the Holy Scriptures (Genesis to Revelation) in the mix and par with all so called 'revealed religions.'
All 24 Resolutions are a self-fulfilling prophecy; "They sow the wind, and reap the whirlwind. The stalk has no bud; it shall never produce meal. If it should produce, Aliens swallow it up." Hosea 8:7
In these days of redefinition there is a redefining of the word, 'fundamentalist.' All, the so called revealed religions, have three classes of adherents, Liberals, Moderates and Fundamentalist. Historically, Islam has been propagated by the sword. Over fifty years ago I visited a Moslem village that became such because of one choice, convert or die. Although there were moderate Moslems who did not agree or participate, there were no outcries or objections.
Sept. 9-11 At the Twin Towers, and the Pentagon, Fundamentalist Islamic terrorists, in the name of Allah, committed suicide and mass murder.
Revelations 9:11, prophetically defines the source of the terrorist's act of 9-11-01 and the 01 points to the first act of its kind.
Rev. 9:11 "And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon. (destruction)
The same angel of darkness that motivated the 9-11 chaos is also the author of the Symposium document I quoted from. Mixture is a house divided against itself and will fall at the moment it says peace and safety. 1Thess. 5:3
Christianity, also, has three major classes, liberals, moderates and fundamentalists. A fundamentalist is viewed, by many, as being a Protestant with a message of life perceived to be negative because it offends the religious status quo. Many, soon to be disturbed, sedated Christians are asleep in Zion.
Redefinition of Fundamentalist
We are being fed a daily Media diet of the phrase, 'radical fundamentalism' equating 'Fundamentalist' with Bin Ladin's terrorists whose arsenal is violent, evil and lethal.
Because of his violence against non-Muslims as well as his own people he is offensive to the quoted Resolution #2, from the Symposium held in 1976 and now emerging into the open. Thus, the redefinition of Judaism, Mohammedism, Catholicism and Protestantism. Those proclaiming the, non-violent, message, "Jesus is Lord," offensive to the new all embracing value system, are tagged radical fundamentalists.
The word Fundamentalist cannot be redefined by prefixing it with 'radical' any more than the word 'sealed' is changed by saying hermetically sealed.
What is the most formidable weapon of the Christian? Jn.18: 36 Jesus in His witness before Pilate said, "My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight so that I should not be delivered to the Jews" (This is not an anti-Semitic statement; (both Gentiles and Jews participated in the crucifixion)
Rev. 19:10 "For the testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy", which is communicated, non-violently, by speech and the written Word of God. Jesus being Omnipotent Lord requires that to follow Him all else must be excluded. This means Jesus is offensive to the all-embracing, world politico-religious system now emerging. The nemesis of this system is freedom of speech and communication, which is the, all consuming, arsenal of Believers; who follow no other than their, non-violent, Commander Jesus. Our message that Jesus is the 'One and only way' is not only offensive to the emerging religious conglomerate, it is perceived as inflammatory. Speech terrorism is on the horizon. Among other things, Jesus was most hated because of His teaching.
The Drummer to whom you march will determine your destiny.
Matt. 13:57 "So they were offended at Him" Lk. 7:23 "Blessed is he who is not offended because of Me"
Revelations 18:4 "Come out of her, My people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues"
Romans 8:14 "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God"
