Preparing the Way of the Lord

Revelation 16 – 17

Revelation 16

The Seven Last Plagues

As the multitudes of saints making up the collective bride of Christ stand on the vast expanse of glittering crystal before the temple of God in heaven; seven angels are given the seven bowls of God’s wrath to be poured out on the earth.

Revelation 16:1 And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth.

The first viol or bowl was poured out on the earth and men were afflicted with grievous sores.

After witnessing the resurrection and change to spirit of the faithful, many in Israel are beginning to repent and turn to God; at the same time most of humanity will still follow their leaders, who fearing the  loss of their positions continue to resist God.

This affliction was poured out on those who are in rebellion against God and refuse to live by every Word of God.

 

The word “noisome” means disgusting, fetid, putrid, rotten, stinking; and is usually a reference to weeping sores which ooze pus and noxious material. The word grievous refers to extreme pain.

Remember that at this point the New Europe will be at war with Asia and much of the world – especially the repenting nations of Israel –  will no longer exalt [worship] the New Europe, therefore it appears that this viol or bowl of wrath will fall primarily on Europe and her remaining allies.

16:2 And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast [refused to live by every Word of God], and upon them which worshipped his image [those who esteem the New Europe].

The second viol follows quickly after and the “sea” is turned into a coagulated mess. This appears to refer to the Mediterranean Sea because the New Europe is on the Mediterranean.

16:3 And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul [creature] died in the sea.

The third angel pours out his viol and the open bodies of fresh water are polluted. People are then required to dig wells for water as the Egyptians did when the Nile was turned to the same kind of bloody mess.

16:4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

16:5 And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.  16:6 For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

16:7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

The fourth angel causes the sun to flare with great heat upon the earth.  This would affect the entire earth.

16:8 And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

Then the fifth angel obscured the light in the kingdom of the beast, so that the New Europe will be plunged into complete darkness.  This seems to be some kind of particulate like smoke or dense dust which prevents even artificial light from being seen.

16:10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,  16:11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

After the beast [the New Europe, the seventh revival of the scarlet beast and its ruler] is counter attacked after he attacks Asia in the third year, he will move to Jerusalem as his last redoubt; and the armies of Asia will pursue him there.

Daniel 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape. 11:43 But he shall have power over the treasures of gold and of silver, and over all the precious things of Egypt: and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

11:45 And he shall plant the tabernacles of his palace between the seas in the glorious holy mountain; yet he shall come to his end, and none shall help him.

The Asian armies which were destroying the seat of the beast and his kingdom in Europe, will turn south towards Jerusalem in hot pursuit of the beast and false prophet, and the sixth angel opens the way for them by drying up the river Euphrates. The Euphrates dries up very quickly allowing vast armies of men to pass over.  

Remember all of these things are being poured out during the Marriage of the Lamb in heaven and take place over a very few days.

Revelation 16:12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.

As the Euphrates dries up, demons go forth to encourage these armies to turn south to Jerusalem. 

16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

Then Jesus Christ declares that when he comes to take and rule the Kingdom WITH his resurrected saints, he will destroy rebellion and wickedness and rule the earth in righteousness. This is not referring to the resurrection of the bride which already happened as the seventh trump began to sound. 

These viols of plagues are poured out while the wedding feast is taking place in heaven; after the resurrection and before Christ comes with them to rule the earth.

Blessed is the one who is watching and keeping himself from joining the rebellious!

16:15 Behold, I come [to rule, surprising the wicked] as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments [is clothed with righteousness, referring to those repenting during this time], lest he walk naked [of righteousness], and they see his shame [the shame of our wickedness is revealed].

16:16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon [the armies mass on a plateau north of Jerusalem].

Now the seventh angel pours out his viol and Jesus Christ will come from the Marriage of the Lamb in heaven, back to the earth WITH his saints.

Zechariah 14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity [when the nations of Psalm 83 and the soon rising New Europe occupy Jerusalem and have deported half the population, the armies from Asia will surround the city and Christ will come], and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

14:3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

14:5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: 14:7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

Revelation 16:17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

The seventh vial represents the coming of Christ with his chosen 144,000 to the Mount of olives  Jerusalem, while vast numbers of other chosen come to their various nations around the earth.

16:18 And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great.

Revelation 16:19 refers to the great earthquake spoken of in Zechariah 14:4.

16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.

16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.

16:21 And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.

Consider that all these events including the movement of mighty armies could not take place in the one day of the resurrection of the bride as the seventh trump began to sound. Also consider that these plagues were poured out while the saints stood before the Temple of God in heaven.

The key to understanding this is the difference between the 1,290 days and the 1,335 days of Daniel 12. The resurrection is at the end of 1,290 days AFTER the man of sin is set up doing miracles, and the final plagues take some days to be poured out; at which time Christ comes WITH his saints, then when all resistance is put down the Kingdom of God will be established on the Feast of Pentecost at the 1335 day mark.  

Be careful here, the exact date that Christ will come is not stated.  He could come say at the 1310 day mark to destroy the wicked and arrest Satan and his demons and then wait until Pentecost for God’s Spirit to be poured out (Joel 2:28) and begin the Kingdom of God over all the earth.  

The 1290th day marks the resurrection of the faithful,  The Feast of Pentecost at the 1335th day marks the establishment of the Kingdom of God.  Christ could come at any point between the 1290th day and the 1335th day to fight the enemy and then wait until Pentecost to pour out God’s Spirit and begin the Kingdom.  

Remember that after Israel arrived at Sinai they waited several days before God appeared on Mt Sinai, and the disciples waited for ten days after Christ’s ascension before Pentecost came. 

 

Revelation 17

The Scarlet Beast and The Kings of the North and South

The King of the North

Daniel chapter 8 and Daniel chapter 11, both concern the rivalry between the Kings of the North and South. To understand the end time application of these prophecies, it is necessary to know who these kings represent.

The explanation of the King of the North is found in Daniel 2, where king Nebuchadnezzar was given a special dream and God gave Daniel the understanding. Daniel states in verse 29 that the dream was given by God, to reveal what shall come to pass.

The dream consisted of an image of a man with a head of gold, a breast and arms of silver, a belly and thighs of brass and legs of iron with feet of mixed iron and clay (Dan 2:31-33). This image was destroyed by a stone cut out without hands, smiting the image on it’s feet and breaking them to pieces. This stone then became a great mountain that filled the whole earth (Dan 2:34-35).

God gives Daniel the interpretation, which he reveals to the king. The head of gold is Nebuchadnezzar, King of Babylon verse 38. The other body parts are other kingdoms which shall come being different peoples but maintaining the same Babylonian church state mystery religion system verse 39.

Historically we know that the Empire of Babylon gave way to the Empire of the Medes and Persians, which passed on to the Greeks and was finally inherited by Rome and finally the Holy Roman Empire.

This final Holy Roman Empire was and shall be partly strong and partly brittle verse 42 as the toes were part of iron and part of clay. And in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom, which shall break in pieces all of these kingdoms verse 44.

This image represents a system which started in Babylon and continued through these succeeding empires. As each one supplanted the previous empire, they adopted the same system. A different race of people ruled, but the system of government and the religion remained.

As the head contains the brain and mind and controls the body, so this image was dominated by it’s head; Babylon. Each of these successive empires was essentially a continuation of the Babylonian Empire System by different peoples.

This is why the whole statue and the systems it represents is called Babylon, and why the Holy Roman Empire of the ten toes of the coming New Europe, which is to be destroyed by the God of Heaven through Christ at his coming,  is called Babylon the Great (Rev 18:2).

An angel from God came to Daniel in response to his prayer, revealing what would become of Daniel’s people in the LATTER DAYS (Dan 10:1-14).

This angel revealed to Daniel that the Kingdom of Persia which followed the Empire of Babylon would be replaced by the Greeks (Dan 11:2-4). The first king of Greece would be broken and his kingdom would be divided into four parts. One of these parts was to be called the king of the north in the prophecies; and one part, Egypt, to be called the king of the south. Daniel 11 is chiefly concerned with the rivalry between these two divisions through history.

Historically, King Philip of Macedon prepared plans to unite the Greeks and conquer the Persians, but died before carrying them out. His son Alexander became the first king of a united Greece, and conquered the Medo-Persian Empire.

Alexander died of fever in 323 B.C. and then after much infighting, the kingdom was eventually divided between numerous of Alexander’s officers. (To see how there eventually came to be four parts, see the 2300 Days Prophecy in the Daniel article).

Ptolemy became ruler of Egypt which also included Judea, ans thi9s Egypt Judea kingdom was called the kingdom of the SOUTH.

During a dip in Ptolemy’s fortunes, one of his generals, Seleucus Nicator seized the province of Babylon NORTH of Jerusalem. Daniel 11 concerns itself with the rivalry that developed between the two kingdoms.

This Kingdom of the NORTH was eventually swallowed up by Rome even as the Greeks swallowed up the Empire of Persia, which had, in its turn replaced Babylon!

ALL these Kingdoms were part of the Babylonian system, which shall be destroyed by Jesus Christ at his coming. The original King of the North was Nicator whose kingdom was called Babylon!

The modern, rising New Europe is a revival of the Babylonian System, and the final revival of the Holy Roman Empire, is today’s King of the North.

 

The King of the South

At the time of the end shall the King of the South push at him [the Jewish State allied with Egypt will provoke the New Europe] and the King of the North shall come against them (Dan 11:40-43). Who shall the North attack? Why those who provoked him of course. Who does he strike? EGYPT and JUDEA.

So, who provoked him? EGYPT and JUDEA!  So, who is the King of the South? EGYPT allied with Judah is and has always been the King of the South! When Ptolemy became king of EGYPT, the King of the South, he also ruled JUDEA!  JUDEA was a part of Egypt at that time.

The King of the South referred to that area which was [is] SOUTH of Jerusalem. 

The King of the North, Babylon, today’s rising New Europe shall attack JUDEA and EGYPT.

All the Israelite peoples shall fall with them (Hos 5:5). It is very interesting to see that EGYPT, the JEWISH STATE, the USA and the BRITISH are ALL closely allied together at this time. And that they are ALL specifically mentioned as falling together, to Babylon the coming New Europe!

The entire chapter eleven of Daniel is about EGYPT, why would Egypt suddenly NOT BE the King of the South at the end of the chapter? This just makes NO SENSE.

Egypt, along with her allies has been the King of the South for about 2,300 years and remain the King of the South.

In summary; The King of the South is and has always been EGYPT and Judea together, and will fall with their allies at the start of the final forty two months.

The King of the North was Babylon and is still Babylon, the feet of Babylon; the now rising New Europe.

This final revival of the Holy Roman Empire [the feet of Babylon] shall occupy Jerusalem and Judea for forty two months (Rev 13:5).  

The scriptures tell us that Jerusalem, and Judea will be occupied for 42 months, but nothing is said about occupying America, the British countries or Scandinavia; it is only said that they will fall in a process lasting 42 months.

Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half [42 months, i.e. 3 !/2  years] ; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

 

The Scarlet Beast

THE SCARLET BEAST and the Woman;  EXPLAINED

The scarlet beast had seven heads and ten horns. 

The seven heads are the seven revivals of the scarlet beast system of the political Holy Roman Empire; which is dominated or ridden by the woman, which is the great religious entity known as the Roman Catholic Church.   

This system is explained in Revelation 13 as the system of Satan. 

This scarlet beast system began to be ridden by the woman during the empire of Justinian when Justinian authorized the woman to become the authority in the Roman empire because of the breakdown of the civil system due to the collapse of Imperial Rome.

Revelation 12:3   And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: 

The ten horns are the ten kings of the last and soon coming final seventh revival of the scarlet beast Holy Roman Empire system, ridden by the woman or religion.  By whatever name this new Europe  is called it will be brought into being by a final miracle working pope (Rev 13).

Revelation 17:3  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 [the unholy “Holy” Roman Empire], having seven heads [seven revivals] and ten horns [the seventh and last revival consisting of ten rulers [nations]  under a central federal leader].

17:4 And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

17:6 And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration [awe].

17:7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her [that she rides upon], which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

The woman is the Babylonian Mystery religion now disguising itself as “Christian” and she rides the Scarlet Beast [the Holy Roman Empire system] which is the feet of the Statue of Babylon in Daniel 2, further explained in Daniel 7.  The woman began to ride this scarlet beast [the Holy Roman Empire] during the reign of Justinian. 

After five past revivals, the sixth revival came in the early 20th century with the Mussolini Vatican Concordat which was totally destroyed at the end of WW 2. 

The beast of the Holy Roman Empire existed, and then ceased to exist; and finally it is to be revived into a renewed existence one last [seventh] time.  The power of this Holy Roman Empire system is from Satan.

17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

This Babylonian Holy Roman Empire beast system arose and was totally destroyed in WW 2, and when it rises again in Europe, at the call of a final miracle working pope, the worldly who do not understand the Word of God will be astonished!  

Why?  Because this six times revived system is now resurrected by a final miracle working pope for a seventh time.

17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains [they are the seven revivals of the scarlet beast (which is the Holy Roman Empire) and are the city of seven hills in which the woman has her palace], on which the woman sitteth.

The interpretation of the seven mountains is the seven hills of Rome, and is also seven dynasties or revivals of the scarlet beast [Holy Roman Empire] system as revealed in the next verse. 

At some point after the Mussolini [sixth] version of the scarlet beast was destroyed; another [seventh] and final version will be brought to life and will have power to make war for 42 months. 

17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is [the sixth Mussolini], and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space [42 months].

The sixth beast, Mussolini; was destroyed in WW 2; and is to be followed by a seventh revival of the [Holy Roman Empire] scarlet beast.

17:11 And the beast that was, and is not [the Holy Roman Empire religious leader], even he is [will be associated with and rides the seven revivals of the Holy Roman Empire] the eighth, and is [associated with, but is not one of the seven revivals of the first Holy Roman Empire beast; the eighth beast being the woman [religion] which rides (controls) the Holy Roman Empire system] of the seven, and goeth into perdition [the eighth beast or religion will be totally destroyed along with the New European political system and leader at the coming of Christ].

The beast “which was and is not” explained.  

This does not refer to the destruction of any one of the seven revivals of the Holy Roman Empire at all, it does not refer to the ten horns on this seventh head at all!.  Remember that the beast “which was and is not”, is NOT one of the seven; but is an eighth, and the eighth is the religion which rides the seven political empires!  

The expression “was and is not” refers to the fact that in this vision John saw that this religion would no longer exist but would go into perdition [Gehenna fire].  The prophecy of the total destruction of this eighth horn [false religion] is sure and is presented as an accomplished fact. Notice it is this eighth [or false religion] which goes into perdition, not the ten nations!  Now look at Revelation 17:16 where it is these very ten kings who will turn on this false religion and destroy it, once the deception has been removed at the coming of Christ! 

This eighth beast is revealed in Revelation 13:11  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon [this is a false religion disguised as being godly].

This religious beast is the historical papacy which rode the Holy Roman Empire; the final papal false prophet is the climax of that deceptive religious system;  and appears innocent and godly, while teaching people to obey and follow him as their ultimate moral authority in place of God as if he were God.

This religious leader will have the power to do miracles from Satan and causes the dead Holy Roman Empire political system to come back to life and he will exercise the power of the state.

13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.  13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image [likeness of the Holy Roman Empire system] to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

The ten horns are ten rulers or nations which are a part of the seventh revival of the Holy Roman Empire scarlet beast.  Each of these ten will be be leaders of their own nations and will give themselves to a central federal authority. Once they agree to join this system an overall leader will be chosen who will have the collective power of the whole federal [American style state federal] system.

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 [42 months] with the [political scarlet beast] beast. 17:13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast [the leader of the seventh revival].

At the end of this seventh revival, which will last for 42 months, Jesus Christ will come with his chosen and destroy this Babylonian Holy Roman Empire church state mystery system. 

17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues [which this Church dominates].

When the political and religious leaders are destroyed and the deception is lifted, the ten rulers will repent and turn on and destroy this this political system and the religious system of exalting men above the Word of God.

17:16 And the ten horns [kings, rulers] which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire [the ten rulers and nations will realize how they have been deceived into ruin and will turn on this religious system and destroy it].

17:17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city [the Vatican, ROME; the final false prophet being the eighth beast], which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

The list of seven Holy Roman Empire revivals includes: Justinian, Otto the Great, Charlemagne, Napoleon, The Hapsburg’s and Mussolini; with one more to come. 

Historians regard Charlemagne as the first Holy Roman Emperor, however the church state scarlet beast system that is ridden by the papacy is what I am referring to, not some historian’s label.  In fact it was Justinian who elevated the Catholic Church above the state to maintain order because of the fall of Rome to the barbarians.

 

IN CONCLUSION

The Woman

1) In Revelation 17:1 a certain woman is identified as a great whore “that sitteth upon many waters”. This is explained in Revelation 17:15; where the many waters are explained as a great multitude of many peoples, nations and languages. So this woman sits upon or dominates many nations and very many people; she is a very large influential church organization having relationships with governments.

2) 17: 2 the kings or rulers have committed fornication with her. She has close and intimate relationships with the rulers of this world, and the nations are intoxicated by their relationships with her.

3) 17:3 In spirit (in a vision); 17:4 I saw her arrayed in purple and scarlet and decked with precious stones and holding a cup filled with abominations and fornications (relationships with the nations). In Revelation 17:5 she is called Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots. V6; she was drunk with the blood of the saints.

Revelation 17:9 the seven heads are seven mountains [the seven hills of Rome, symbolic of seven governments], on which the woman sitteth.

In scripture, a virgin is symbolic of purity, perfect loyalty and true Godliness; symbolic of the Called of God 2 Corinthians 11:2.

Therefore a whore or harlot, symbolizes a fallen or unfaithful woman or religious organization which is not faithful to live by every Word of God.

This whore is the religious part of the Babylonian church state system and she rides the Roman beast of Daniel 7.

This false religion which is the Babylonian Mysteries now calling herself “Christian,” rides the seven revivals of the scarlet beast.

This fallen church is not faithful to God, rather she stands on her own traditions instead of the Word of God. She exalts her leaders ABOVE GOD’S WORD through the Primacy of Peter heresy. Rather than being faithful to the Word of God, she thinks to change times and laws. Changing the Sabbath from the Seventh Day to Sunday, the first day of the week, and changing from God’s Scriptural Calendar to other calendar systems.

There is only one woman or church which; organized the crusades, most of which were against dissenters within Europe; who organized Inquisitions against truth seekers, who slaughtered the saints of God.

Only one who dwells in a city of seven hills (mountains) (governments) both literally and also symbolically by dominating seven historic “holy” empires. Only one who adorns it’s leaders with scarlet and purple and jewels; and maintains relationships with the governments and rulers of this earth.

Only one who has many daughters (other churches coming out of her in protest, yet still clinging to many of her false teachings).

One church who was the very first one to adopt the Primacy of Peter heresy to exalt herself above God’s word. And together with all these things dominates many multitudes and nations. She is the one who claims to be Christian, who uses the name of Christ while substituting her own traditions for the Word of God.

 

The Scarlet Beast

Revelation 17:3; The woman sits upon, rides, dominates, controls; a scarlet colored beast, full of the names of blasphemy (made scarlet with the blood of the saints), having seven heads and ten horns. 

The final miracle working pope is the EIGHTH beast and rides the Scarlet Beast’s seven revivals. This eighth beast is of the seven, associated with the seven but not one of the seven kings; and rides the seven political empires, controlling them through its religious influence on the masses of people.  Teaching all people to follow itself, instead of being zealous for the Word of God.   

 

The Seven Heads

Verse 3; the beast has seven heads. Verse 9; the seven heads are seven mountains (mountains symbolize governments). Verse 10; and there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is [sixth], and the other is not yet come; and when he [the seventh] cometh, he must continue a short space.

There were six Roman, Church State Empires:  Justinian,  Otto the Great, Charlemagne, Napoleon. The Hapsburg’s and Mussolini; with one more to come.

We are now about to see the seventh and last revival of the scarlet beast; rise from the death of the sixth Holy Roman Empire, to become the climax of the Babylon system; rising up to torment all within its influence who will not submit to it. 

THE TEN HORNS of the last head or the final revival of the Scarlet Beast system

Verse 3; this final beast has ten horns 

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. 17:13 these have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast [the seventh revival of the scarlet beast satanic system].  17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them. V 16: finally these kings shall realize that they have been had, they have been deceived and they shall turn against and destroy this False Religion that has ridden on them by deceiving them.

Six revivals of scarlet beast church state Babylonian Mystery system have come and gone in Rome, all ridden by the same Church; with is the Babylonian Mystery religion disguised as “Christian.” 

In these last days; ten kings [rulers] will set up a new seventh revival of the same system, as the seventh and last revival of the scarlet beast, giving their authority to one president or emperor; approved by the final papal false prophet.

This will be a government structure based on the “Babylonian church state” model of the Babylonian Mysteries church state system.

They will rule for one hour (a short time) which is defined as 42 months in Revelation 11:2.  Their empire will end with the return of the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ.

At that time the ten nations freed from their religious chains, shall turn against the False Church, the great whore and destroy her (Rev 17:16-17).

The prophecy covers much more than the years immediately preceding the coming of Christ; it covers the whole period of the seven kings and the seven revivals of the Holy Roman Empire.

The “one that is” is the sixth mentioned; Mussolini was the sixth Church/State Holy Roman Empire. Mussolini by the Vatican Concordat did revive the sixth Holy Roman Empire.

The seventh and last revival of the scarlet beast system by whatever name it is called, is about to come and will exist only a “short time” [maybe a little more than 42 months or 1.260 days].

The final system now coming,  is the Seventh revival of the Roman church state Babylonian Mysteries Holy Roman Empire system, by whatever name it will be called.
