Chapter 13

Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a BEAST{representing a kingdom} RISE UP out of the SEA {made up of combined spiritual rivers/nations}, having SEVEN HEADS {symbolizing seven ruling parts with a capital city over each part} and TEN HORNS {representing ten tribes equated with the union of nations}, and UPON his HORNS {tribes/nations} TEN CROWNS {signifying the time when the horns/tribes/nations are reigning in spiritual Canaan}, and upon his HEADS {foreheads/minds} the NAME of BLASPHEMY {because their way of thinking concerning this world's long future is contrary to the two witnesses' visions and oracles concerning this world's imminent demise}.

The written prophecies in the Book of Revelation are constructed from events that happened in the past. Accordingly, the latter day seven-headed ten-horned beast (representing a kingdom) is based on the past type when ten tribes (ten horns) of Israel had received their inheritance (hence, the crowned horns/tribes) in the land of old Canaan. The beast’s (kingdom’s) seven heads represented the seven divided parts of Canaan in which the ten tribes (horns) had received their inheritance. Four of these ten tribes/ten horns received their inheritance in the southern kingdom of the tribe of Judah. The other six tribes received their inheritance in the northern kingdom of the tribe of Joseph. The combined kingdoms of Judah and Joseph are referred to as the one kingdom of Israel.

The verse in Revelation 13:1 reveals that a latter day beast (kingdom of latter day Babylon ruled by the USA) figuratively traveled across the spiritual wilderness to rise up in spiritual Canaan after its first reigning period ended in spiritual Goshen of spiritual Egypt. This illustration represents the kingdom (beast/dragon) of latter day Babylon rising in the land of spiritual Canaan, ruling as the latter day Babylonian beast's second reigning period and again during its third reigning period before the rock impacts the USA.

During the first reigning period of the latter day seven-headed ten-horned beast of Babylon, latter day Moses revealed the visions and oracles written beneath six seals on the scroll of life. During the latter day Babylonian beast's (kingdom's) second reigning period, latter day Moses revealed visions and oracles written on six angels with trumpets from the scroll of life's seventh part/seventh seal. During the latter day Babylonian beast's third reigning period, latter day Moses reveals six lights and six thunders of the seventh angel with trumpet from the scroll of life's seventh part/seventh seal.

In the Book of Revelation, a nation is represented by a river. All rivers (nations) flow to one place to create the figurative sea, from which the kingdom (seven-headed ten-horned beast/kingdom) of the union of nations arose (united in agreement) three separate times to rule as latter day Babylon. The union of nations unite in agreement to enforce on non complying nations the USA's ideals that it envisions for the world. In our day, the figurative number of seven heads represents all the capitals (heads) of the nations of Christendom. The beast’s ten horns represent all the nations (horns) of latter day Christendom.

The reason why the horns have crowns is that the latter day Babylonian beast (kingdom) is reigning in the spiritual land of spiritual Canaan during its second reigning period. This second reigning period of 1290 days is the first half of the one hour of temptation. During the latter day Babylonian beast's third reigning period in spiritual Canaan, it reigns again for 1290 days for the second half hour of the one hour of temptation.

When this seven-headed ten-horned beast was reigning for 1290 days during its first of three reigning periods, it was the dragon/beast in spiritual Goshen of spiritual Egypt. In the beginning of that time, latter day Moses first began to reveal the two witnesses' new present truth message from beneath the first seal of the scroll of life. After the latter day seven-headed ten-horned dragon's (being the latter day Babylonian kingdom of the union of nations) first reigning period ended in spiritual Goshen, it spiritually traveled through the spiritual wilderness to the spiritual promised land (hence the reigning crowns on the horns) of spiritual Canaan to reign again during its second and third reigning periods.

*******

Revelation 13:2 And the BEAST {kingdom/union of nations} which I saw was like unto a LEOPARD{symbolizing old Grecia’s kingdom}, and his FEET were as the FEET of a BEAR {symbolizing old Medo-Persia’s kingdom}, and his MOUTH as the MOUTH of a LION {symbolizing old Babylon’s kingdom}: and the DRAGON {first reigning period of latter day Babylon in spiritual Goshen that ruled as the number six kingdom} gave HIM {latter day Babylon that ruled as the number seven kingdom in spiritual Canaan} his POWER, and his SEAT {reigning throne}, and GREAT AUTHORITY.

This latter day Babylonian beast of confusion is figuratively made-up of five past fallen kingdoms, according to the Book of Daniel. In one past type, its seven ewe heads and ten rams’ horns represent the seven divided parts of the land of old Israel when old Egypt ruled the land; its body of a leopard represents the time when the kingdom of Grecia ruled over the land of Israel and Jerusalem; its feet of a bear represents the time when the kingdom of Medo-Persia ruled over the land of Israel and Jerusalem; its seven mouths of a lion represent the time when the kingdom of old Babylon ruled over the land of Israel and Jerusalem. All of these combined features of animals (beasts/kingdoms) create a confusing looking creature, which represents the latter day Babylonian dragon (beast). These past kingdoms (beasts) had once ruled over old Jerusalem as well as many other nations.

The latter day union of nations agreed to enforce the USA's vision on non complying nations. Thereby the union of nations became the latter day seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian dragon (kingdom) reigning for 1290 days as the number six kingdom in the land of spiritual Goshen, until the union of nations divided against enforcing the USA's vision on non complying nations. Thereafter, the union of nations again agreed to unite and enforce the USA's vision on non complying nations. The union of nations were then ruling as the number seven kingdom (beast) of confusion (latter day Babylon) for 1290 days. This time the beast (kingdom) reigned in the spiritual land of spiritual Canaan during its second reigning period as the number seven kingdom for 1290 days, until the union of nations again divided against enforcing the USA's vision for the world on non complying nations. Thereafter, the union of nations again agree to unite to enforce the USA's vision for the world on non complying nations. During that time, the union of nations is reigning as the number eight kingdom during its third/final reigning period of 1290 days, until a rock impacts the USA and ends latter day Babylon's reign over the nations.

The same seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast is the number six kingdom, number seven kingdom, and number eight kingdom. It received its power, seat and great authority to rule over all nations from the previous ruling kingdom, which is mentioned in Revelation 17:10.

Revelation 17:10 And there are SEVEN KINGS{kingdoms/spiritual beasts}: FIVE ARE FALLEN {five kingdoms no longer reigning}, and ONE IS {number 6 kingdom/latter day Babylonian dragon/beast reigning in spiritual Goshen}, and THE OTHER {number seven kingdom/latter day Babylonian beast} is NOT YET COME{while spiritually traveling through the spiritual wilderness}; and when HE COMETH {when the union of nations unite in agreement to enforce the USA's vision and reign as the number seven kingdom in spiritual Canaan}, he must continue a short space {1290 days}.

*******

Revelation 13:3 And I saw ONE {referring to the leaders in the USA's capital} of HIS{ten-horned seven-headed beast’s} HEADS as it were WOUNDED {USA’s influence over the union of nations is wounded at the end of the Babylonian beast’s first reigning period of 1290 days in spiritual Goshen} to DEATH; and his deadly WOUND was HEALED {the leaders in the USA's capital/head unite and cause the union of nations to agree to enforce the USA's vision on non complying nations to become the latter day Babylonian beast arising to life in spiritual Canaan}: and ALL {nations of} THE WORLD wondered after the {latter day Babylonian} BEAST {during the second reigning period of the union of nations/seven-headed ten-horned beast/kingdom enforcing the USA's vision for the world on non complying nations}.

Three and a half (3½) days after the end of the first 2300-day period, the influence of the USA’s (false prophet’s) capital (one head/false prophetess) was totally wounded, having no influence to keep the union of nations (that reigned as the number six kingdom) united in agreement to enforce the USA's vision for the world on non complying nations. According to this weakness, the union of nation's (latter day Babylonian beast's) rule as the number six kingdom came to an end after 1290 days. However, the wound healed. This meant that the latter day Babylonian beast (union of nations) was again resurrected to life by the USA to rule over all nations as the number seven kingdom, enforcing the USA's vision for the world on non complying nations. All nations of the world wondered (in awe) at the resurrected union of nations ruling as the number seven kingdom.

*******

Revelation 13:4 And THEY {peoples and nations} WORSHIPPED the DRAGON {former union of nations that reigned as the number six kingdom in spiritual Goshen} which gave power unto the BEAST {being the union of nations again agreeing to unite and reign as the number seven kingdom in spiritual Canaan enforcing the USA's vision for the world on non complying nations}: and they WORSHIPPED the BEAST {union of nations reigning in spiritual Canaan as the number seven kingdom}, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

The peoples and nations worship the union of nations (kingdom of latter day Babylon). Among the union of nations is the leading nation USA (false prophet). This kingdom (beast) of latter day Babylon is so powerful (both economically and militarily) that no nation or combination of nations can make war with it and defeat it.

*******

Revelation 13:5 And there was given unto HIM {seven-headed ten-horned beast/union of nations ruling as the number seven kingdom in spiritual Canaan} a MOUTH {being the USA's leadership that speaks for the union of nations} SPEAKING GREAT THINGS {great things of what the USA envisions for the world's future} and BLASPHEMIES {the USA's visions for the world's future are contrary/blaspheme against the two witnesses' written visions and oracles concerning this world's future}; and POWER was given unto HIM{seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast/union of nations} to continue FORTY and TWO MONTHS {during these forty-two months/1260 days plus 3½ days, the USA is speaking of its ideals that it envisions for the world's future that blaspheme against the two witnesses' prophesying during the same 1260 days concerning latter day Babylon's destruction by an impacted rock's effects in the USA}.

The seven-headed ten-horned beast's (union of nations') mouth is the leadership in the USA's capital (capital/great whore/false prophetess) and nation (false prophet). The USA speaks its vision of the great things that it envisions for the world’s future. However, these visions blaspheme (contradict) against the two witnesses' predictions in the scroll of life, that state that this world will be destroyed by an impacted rock’s ensuing effects, as revealed by latter day Moses’ message. Power was given the latter day Babylonian beast (coalition/kingdom) to continue promoting its democratic and capitalistic visions for the world’s future for 42 months (1260 days plus 3½ days), which parallel the 1260 days that the righteous woman (new Jerusalem) was journeying through the first spiritual wilderness for 1260 days (see Revelation 12:6).

Latter day Babylon’s reign as the seventh kingdom lasted for 1290 days (43 months) of Daniel 12:11. During the remaining 42 months (moons) of the latter day seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast’s reign of 43 mouths, one mouth (being the leadership in the USA’s capital/false prophetess and USA's nation/false prophet) of its seven heads was speaking of its visions for the whole latter day Babylonian beast. These confused visions blasphemed (contradicted) against latter day Moses’ message proclaimed from six of seven angels' messages. These 1290 days ended 3½ days after the second 2300-day period. At the expiration of these 1290 days, the Babylonian beast (coalition/kingdom) was wounded to death, whereby the nations were no longer united in agreement to enforce the visions of the USA (false prophet) on non complying nations.

*******

Revelation 13:6 And HE {Babylonian beast/union of nations} OPENED HIS MOUTH in BLASPHEMY {contradiction} against GOD, to blaspheme his NAME {seventh plagued angel}, and his TABERNACLE {holy of holies}, and THEM {three groups of redeemed from all generations} that dwell IN HEAVEN {dwell above the high mountain/erupted super volcano/new Jerusalem during the judgment}.

Near the end of the judgment, the seventh plagued angel reveals the time when the scroll of life was being opened earlier in the judgment. During the opening of the scroll of life's visions and oracles, some of the visions and oracles revealed what the USA's leadership and nation were doing during the remaining 1260 days of the second 2300-day period. In that time, the USA (mouth of the beast) was promoting its democratic and capitalistic visions at the same time six of the seven angels with trumpets were revealing their messages of warning concerning the rock’s impacts and its effects on the land. Accordingly, the USA's ideals that it envisions for the world’s future were blaspheming against the seventh plagued angel's (God's) visions and oracles. These visions of the living God (seventh plagued angel) will already be sitting and reigning on a great white throne of light high above the erupting lava covered super volcano (new Jerusalem) over the lava covered destroyed kingdom of latter day Babylon.

The scroll of life's visions and oracles reveal how the ideals of the false prophet (USA) and false prophetess (USA’s leadership in the US capital) are also blaspheming against the three groups of redeemed that will already be dwelling in heaven (representing the high mountain/erupted super volcano/new Jerusalem). The three groups of redeemed will have already entered the fiery ensign (fiery lava erupting from the super volcano in the USA) to be dwelling on the high mountain that reaches up into heaven (Earth's atmosphere/heaven) before the judgment will have begun.

*******

Revelation 13:7 And it was given unto HIM {seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast of confusion that represents the USA with the union of nations uniting in agreement to enforce on non complying nations the USA's ideals that the USA envisions for the world's future} to make WAR {spiritual war during the sign of Jonah} with the SAINTS {believers of latter day Moses' message}, and to OVERCOME THEM {the USA's states and nations accept the visions enforced by the Babylonian beast over the two witnesses' visions}: and POWER was given HIM {USA with the union of nations/seven-headed ten-horned beast ruling the world} over ALL KINDREDS, and TONGUES, and NATIONS.

At the end of the two witnesses' 1260 days of prophesying to the USA's states, a meteor's impact (sign of Jonah) in the USA will have failed to release the four riders and their white, red, black, and pale horses from the bottomless pit. Accordingly, the ideals envisioned by the USA and enforced by the union of nations (seven-headed ten-horned beast’s) will then war with the visions and oracles that will have been prophesied for 1260 days by the latter day saints of the first group and the second group of redeemed. During the 3½ days of the sign of Jonah, the USA's leaders with the latter day Babylonian beast will have their religious and scientific scholars ready to denounce and argue away any idea that the USA will be destroyed anytime soon.

*******

Revelation 13:8 And ALL {the USA' states and nations} that dwell upon the earth shall worship HIM {seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast}, whose NAMES are NOT WRITTEN in the BOOK OF LIFE{being the last book/scroll of life that will contain everything that happened from January 2000 through to the time the world ends in a sea of lava, the new Earth, and the 1,100 years of the judgment} of the LAMB {representing the second witness' message} SLAIN {totally rejected/slain in every generation} from the FOUNDATION {Genesis' first generation} of the world.

When a person living in the last generation does not believe latter day Moses’ message (Lamb), they are instead worshiping the ways and ideals of the latter day seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast (kingdom/union of nations). Accordingly, all who continue to worship the ideals of this latter day beast of confusion will die without being resurrected among the redeemed. Every person who ends up dead will no longer have a role in this world, Hence, they will have been blotted out of the scroll of life (referred to as a book of life in the verses of Revelation) that records all the events that take place in the last generation.

During the judgment, the scroll of life's written record is reviewed, which will have recorded the events that took place from January 2000 through to the time of a new Earth, the judgment period, and on. As the events written in the scroll of life are being reviewed in the judgment, the rebellious people will have already died and been blotted out of life. From the time of a person's death, the scroll of life will no longer be writing their part in life if they did not resurrect. Accordingly, the dead will not be playing a part in continuing life in the new Earth for the scroll of life to record in its writings. Therefore when the review of the scroll of life reveals its written record of the new Earth, only the latter day overcomers who remained alive or resurrected, the resurrected overcomers of all past generations, and the great multitude will have all been alive to enter the fiery ensign emanating from the fallen USA and remain written in the scroll of life because they will then be living in the new Earth.

In every past generation, a living prophet revealed his (or her) message, which is likened to a Lamb that was rejected and slain by the leaders and population. This is why it states in Revelation 13:8 that the Lamb was slain from the beginning (foundation) of the world. In the first generation, Cain killed Abel because of Abel’s message to Cain. Hence the Lamb of that generation was killed.

*******

Revelation 13:9 If any man {person} have AN EAR, let him HEAR.

Only the latter day people that have a righteous spirit in their mind will be able to hear (accept) latter day Moses’ message, which has been revealed to him from the scroll of life's visions and oracles written by the two witnesses (Michael and Gabriel). These two witnesses have already seen (witnessed) and recorded all the events that are happening and are going to happen.

*******

Revelation 13:10 HE {seven-headed ten-horned beast/union of nations} that leadeth{nations and people} into CAPTIVITY shall GO into CAPTIVITY {lake of fire}: HE {the seven-headed ten-horned beast} that KILLETH with the {literal or spiritual} SWORD must be KILLED with the SWORD{combined two witnesses’ revealed predictions concerning the impacted rock's plagues/effects}. HERE {according to what is written in this verse} is the PATIENCE and the FAITH of the SAINTS {these saints of the spiritual temple believe latter day Moses' message}.

The latter day seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast (kingdom/union of nations) has made (led) all nations captive by enforcing the ideals that the USA envisions for the world. This same kingdom will end up being captive by the reigning impacted rock’s kingdom. Prior to the rock's impact, any nation that refuses to accept the USA's ideals enforced by the latter day Babylonian beast (coalition) will have been forced to comply by the military and/or sanctioning sword of the latter day Babylonian kingdom (union of nations). Therefore, this same latter day Babylonian beast will be killed by the impacted rock’s sword (effects/plagues). According to the predictions in Revelation 13:10, the latter day saints (first latter day group of spiritual priests and then the second latter day group of spiritual elders) wait patiently and have the faith that these written biblical prophecies will be fulfilled as revealed by latter day Moses.

*******

Revelation 13:11 And I beheld ANOTHER BEAST{nation} COMING UP {healing/uniting in agreement} out of the EARTH{representing in the latter days the land of the USA}; and he had TWO HORNS {symbolizing in the past type two tribes/two horns in the old kingdom of Judah that was in the southern part of Israel's whole land: seven-headed ten-horned dragon/beast} like a LAMB (as a peaceful beguiling serpent to complying nations), and he SPAKE {with a lion’s mouth, as an adversary/satan} as a DRAGON {the USA speaks on behalf of the seven-headed ten-horned beast/dragon}.

In the past type after King Solomon's death and the one kingdom of Israel being divided into two separate kingdoms, the lamb-like beast with one head and two horns represented the old kingdom of Judah, which was separated in the southern half of Palestine/Canaan. Its one head represented the capital city of old Jerusalem. The two horns of its head represented the tribe (horn) of Judah and the tribe (horn) of Benjamin, which were the only two horns (two tribes) that remained in the separated southern kingdom/nation of Judah.

In our day, the lamb-like beast of Revelation 13:11 represents the USA. It is part of the seven-headed ten-horned beast (union of nations/kingdom), just as the southern kingdom of Judah was once part of the kingdom of Israel (represented by a seven-headed ten-horned dragon/beast). The USA’s capital (equated with old Jerusalem) is also one of the seven heads of the ten-horned beast. The USA is illustrated as having two horns of a lamb because it seems peaceful. However, any nation that refuses to implement the USA's ideals that the USA envisions for the world will quickly realize that the USA speaks like a ferocious dragon because it is the mouth that speaks for the seven-headed ten-horned dragon/beast (union of nations). The USA speaks of military action or crippling sanctions upon any non complying nation that it esteems as rogue.

The rise of the lamb-like beast from the land (Earth) reveals that its head (leadership in its capital/head) heals from its wound of division, whereby the capital's leadership are divided over military intervention or imposing sanctions on a non complying nation. During the third 2300-day period, the USA's leaders in the capital (head) will unite in agreement to begin enforcing the USA's ideals on any rogue nation.

*******

Revelation 13:12 And HE {lamb-like beast/USA} EXERCISETH {performs} all the power of the FIRST BEAST {being the seven-headed ten-horned beast in spiritual Canaan that had reigned as the seventh kingdom enforcing the USA's vision on non complying nations} before him, and causeth the EARTH {spiritual land of Canaan} and THEM {seven heads and ten tribes/ten horns/union of nations} which dwell therein to WORSHIP the FIRST BEAST {the first beast with seven heads and ten horns represents the union of nations that united in agreement to enforce the USA's vision for the world's future during its rule as the seventh kingdom, being latter day Babylon's second reigning period}, whose deadly WOUND {divided leadership in the USA’s capital/head} was HEALED {the leadership became united in agreement for the USA to enforce its vision on a non complying nation}.

The USA will (during the reign of the seven-headed ten-horned beast as the eighth kingdom) exercise the same power that it had when the previous union of nations (same seven-headed ten-horned beast) was reigning as the number seven kingdom, as stated in Revelation 13:1. After the USA's leadership heals from its wound of division in enforcing the USA's vision on a non complying nation, it rises up (as illustrated by a lamb-like beast rising from the land/Earth) and causes the union of nations (that figuratively dwell in spiritual Canaan) to again unite and agree to give their support in enforcing the USA's vision on a non complying nation. At that time, the seven-headed ten-horned beast (union of nations) will be reigning for 1290 days as the eighth kingdom during the remaining 1290 days of the third 2300-day period plus 3½ days, worshiping the same ways that the union of nations were enforcing during its 1290-day reign during the second 2300-day period.

Revelation 17:8 The BEAST {being the number 6 kingdom reigning as the latter day seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast/kingdom} that thou sawest WAS {Was reigning as the sixth kingdom}, and IS NOT {Is Not because the kingdom of the union of nations is divided against enforcing the USA's vision on non complying nations}; and shall ASCEND {Ascends/resurrects to life when the union of nations agree to unite and enforce the USA's vision on non complying nations} out of the BOTTOMLESS PIT {land of latter day spiritual Canaan/Christendom}, and go into PERDITION{destruction by an impacted rock's effects}: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book {scroll} of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the BEAST {number six kingdom/coalition} that WAS {reigning}, and IS NOT, and YET IS {resurrects back to life}.

Revelation 17:11 And the BEAST {being the union of nations reigning as the number six kingdom/beast} that WAS (reigning), and IS NOT {union of nations divided against enforcing the USA's vision}, even HE {number six kingdom/beast} is the EIGHTH {number eight kingdom/union of nations united in agreement to enforce the USA's vision on non complying nations}, and is of the {number} SEVEN {kingdom}, and goeth into PERDITION {lake of fire/lava}.

*******

Revelation 13:13 And HE {lamb-like beast/USA} doeth GREAT WONDERS {technological, military miracles}, so that HE {USA/false prophet/lamb-like beast} maketh FIRE {symbolizing the USA's awesome display of its military power} COME DOWN {as rocket propelled bombs} from heaven on the earth in the sight of MEN {these men refer to nations/tribes},

The USA is able to do great military wonders in Earth’s atmosphere (heavens), as it fires its rocket propelled bombs that descend from the sky upon nations that have refused to implement in their nation the USA’s ideals that the USA envisions for the world. The other nations (referred to as men in Revelation 13:13) see the overwhelming military might of the USA’s military, as the USA's rocket propelled bombs (fire from heaven) pummel a nation that the USA has accused of being non complying.

*******

Revelation 13:14 And DECEIVETH THEM {union of nations} that dwell on the earth by the means of those MIRACLES {shock and awe of the USA's military wonders} which HE{lamb-like Beast/USA} had power to do in the sight of the BEAST{seven-headed ten-horned beast representing the union of nations that agreed to unite and rule as the seventh kingdom}; saying to them {union of nations} that dwell on the earth {land of spiritual Canaan}, that they should make an IMAGE {the image refers to the same union of nations agreeing to again unite to enforce the USA's ideals on non complying nations but this time ruling as the eighth kingdom} to the BEAST {being the previous seven-headed ten-horned beast/kingdom when the union of nations were in agreement to enforce the USA's visions when the union of nations ruled as the seventh kingdom/beast}, which HAD the WOUND {the wound of division among the leadership in the USA’s capital/head concerning whether to enforce the USA's vision on a non complying nation} by a SWORD {in the past type, King Nebuchadnezzar overthrew old Jerusalem's rebellion and wounded with the edge of the sword old Jerusalem/head ending the reign of King Jehoiachin in Jerusalem}, and did LIVE {the union of nations again agree to unite to enforce the USA's vision to rule as the kingdom that lives again to rule as the number eighth kingdom, just as old Jerusalem healed from its wound and lived again when King Zedekiah in Jerusalem rebelled against serving King Nebuchadnezzar}.

Through the awesome military firepower of the USA’s rocket propelled bombs that it rains down on a non complying nation during the third 2300-day period, it deceives the union of nations. Its technological military prowess is so impressive that the nations of the world are deceived. Accordingly, the false prophet (lamb-like beast/USA) says to the union of nations that they need to unite and agree in enforcing the USA's vision on a non complying nation. Thereby the union of nations will be the number eight kingdom ruling as the image of the previous seven-headed ten-horned beast that ruled as the number seven kingdom. This image (number eight kingdom) is the exact mirror likeness of the previous seven-headed ten-horned beast that ruled as the number seven kingdom. The seven headed beast that ruled as the seventh kingdom had received a wound of division, which caused the coalition to no longer be united to enforce the visions of the USA on rogue nations.

In the past type, King Jehoiachin's autonomous reign in old Jerusalem from serving King Nebuachadnezzar was overthrown and wounded by the sword of old Babylon. Thereafter Nebuchadnezzar made Zedekiah king in old Jerusalem. Then King Zedekiah rebelled against serving King Nebuchadnezzar. This rebellion caused the revival (life) of the previous kingdom (beast) that king Jehoiachin autonomously ruled from within old Jerusalem.

*******

Revelation 13:15 And HE {USA}had POWER to GIVE LIFE unto the IMAGE {the image rules as the eighth kingdom, being the exact likeness of the previous union of nations that united and agreed to enforce the USA's vision that ruled as the number seven kingdom} of the BEAST {being the seven-headed ten-horned beast of latter day Babylon representing the previous union of nations reigning as the seventh kingdom}, that the IMAGE {union of nations re-uniting to rule as the eighth kingdom for 1290 days during the third 2300-day period} of the{seven-headed ten-horned latter day Babylonian kingdom} BEAST{that enforced the USA's vision on a non complying nation as the beast ruled as the number seven kingdom} should BOTH SPEAK {they both speak because the same union of nations of the previous beast/kingdom again united and became the image of the beast}, and cause that as many {other nations} as would not worship the IMAGE (union of nations ruling as the eighth reigning kingdom from spiritual Canaan } of the BEAST {beast/union of nations that ruled as the seventh reigning kingdom from spiritual Canaan} should be KILLED {with an awesome display of military power and/or economic sanctions}.

The USA will have the power/strength to resurrect the former union of nations that had previously united to agree and enforce the USA's vision on a non complying nation. After 1016 days of the third 2300-day period, the union of nations will be ruling for 1290 days as the image (exact likeness) of the previous ruling union of nations. During these 1290 days, the USA is of the image (union of nations) and speaks on behalf of the image of the former beast (union of nations). The image (being the number eight reigning beast/kingdom) is made up by the same nations that created the beast (former union of nations/kingdom). Therefore, when the image speaks it is the same as the beast speaking. The image of the beast says to all nations that they must worship (implement in their nation) the same ideals as the union of nations (kingdom of latter day Babylon reigning as the eighth kingdom}. Any nation that refuses to implement in their nation the ideals that the USA envisions for the world (as enforced by the image of the beast) when told to do so, that nation or nations will be killed by overwhelming military intervention and/or by the implementation of harsh economic sanctions.

*******

Revelation13:16 And HE {lamb-like beast/USA} causeth ALL {nations}, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a MARK{the mark is a spiritual wine cup full of the USA’s ideals that it envisions for the world's future} in their RIGHT HAND {by accepting the false prophet’s/USA’s ideals/spiritual wine cup}, or in their FOREHEADS {when a nation’s leaders drink of this spiritual wine cup, the intoxication of the false prophet’s ideals/wine influences the forehead/mind}:

In our day, the false prophet (false Elijah) is the USA that speaks for the image (union of nations that will be reigning as the eighth kingdom) of the previous beast (same union of nations that reigned as the seventh kingdom). The USA causes all nations (spiritual men) whether they are small or big, rich or poor to accept in their right hand (since it is offered by the false prophet/false Elijah) the spiritual wine cup, which is full of democratic and capitalistic ideals that the USA envisions for the world’s future.

*******

Revelation 13:17 And that NO MAN {referring to any nation/spiritual man} might BUY or SELL {when economic sanctions are enforced upon them}, save he {the nation} that had the MARK {figurative wine cup full of the USA’s ideals/spiritual wine that it envisions for the world's future}, or the NAME {the name of latter day Babylon/confusion is spiritually written on the mind/forehead after accepting in the spiritual right hand the spiritual wine cup and implementing/spiritually drinking the spiritual wine of confusion, which is opposite to the two witnesses' visions and oracles for this world's future} of the {seven-headed ten-horned} BEAST {spiritual beast/kingdom/union of nations}, or the NUMBER{being the number six/6 kingdom that reigns three separate periods. Hence the number 6 kingdom/beast reigns as the sixth kingdom, seventh kingdom, and eighth kingdom} of his NAME {name of Babylon/confusion}.

The lamb like beast represents the USA. The USA speaks for the revived seven-headed Babylonian beast. This seven-headed beast represents the union of nations that unite in agreement to enforce the USA's ideals on non complying nations. Accordingly, no nation (referred to as a man in Revelation 13:17) can buy or sell goods with any other nation unless that nation accepts into their right hand (leader’s hand) the spiritual wine cup (mark) and spiritually drink (implement) the spiritual wine of the USA's ideals that the USA envisions for the world's future. Should a leader’s nation refuse to comply to the USA's commands, the USA with the beast (union of nations/kingdom of confusion) will then impose and enforce harsh sanctions on that non complying nation.

A nation's leadership that does accept the USA's ideals (spiritual wine cup) into their right hand and implement (spiritually drink) the ideals in their nation, it will then have the mark (ideals/visions) of the seven-headed ten-horned beast (union of nations) in their nation's spiritual right hand and the nation's spiritual forehead {mind of the leadership in the capital/head). A nation’s leaders in the capital implement through their laws the USA's ideals enforced by the seven-headed ten-horned beast (union of nations), just as a person who accepts a glass of wine into their hand and drinks the strong wine and the intoxication affects their forehead.

Accepting into the spiritual right hand the USA's ideals (strong spiritual wine) that it envisions for the world and spiritually drinking (implementing) the ideals into a nation's laws, this causes that nation to have the mark of the spiritual wine cup and spiritual wine in their spiritual right hand and forehead. The implemented ideals (spiritual wine) causes the name Babylon (confusion) to be written on that nation’s leadership ruling from within the capital (head). Thereby that nation and its capital will be spiritually drunk on the spiritual wine (ideals) and will have the number 6 written on their foreheads, because the spiritually drunk nation and capital will be of the number 6 kingdom when the number 6 kingdom is reigning as the image of the previous beast . The same number six kingdom (representing the union of nations united in agreement to enforce the USA's ideals on non conforming nations) unites in agreement three separate times to reign as the same latter day confused number 6 kingdom, which is named Babylon/confusion

Revelation 13:18 HERE IS WISDOM. Let HIM{latter day Moses} that HATH UNDERSTANDING COUNT {count how many} the NUMBER {the digit} of the BEAST {beast of Babylon with seven heads and ten horns}: for IT {the number/digit} is {also}the NUMBER of a MAN {false prophet being the USA}; and his NUMBER {of 6} is {written three times as} SIX HUNDRED THREE SCORE AND SIX{666}.

Latter day Moses has the prophetic wisdom to reveal the true meaning of the number (digit) six (6), which is written three times as 666. In Revelation 13:18, latter day Moses is instructed to “count” the “number” of the beast with seven heads and ten horns, which is also the number of a figurative man (being the false prophet/lamb-like beast) representing the USA. In verse 18, there are “three numbers” of “six” to “count”; therefore, the answer to the question is three, after latter day Moses counts how many digits (number sixes) are written in Revelation 13:18.

The seven-headed ten-horned beast – whose name is Babylon as written in the Book of Revelation – began its first reigning period as the sixth kingdom in spiritual Goshen, after five figurative kingdoms had fallen. This reveals that its number is six (6) because it is the number six (sixth) kingdom that reigned after the fifth kingdom fell.

When latter day Moses began to reveal his new message from beneath six seals during the remaining 1260 days of the first 2300-day period, the USA had already caused the union of nations (represented as a seven-headed ten-horned beast/kingdom) to unite and agree to enforce the USA's ideals on any non conforming nation. At that time, the union of nations were ruling as the latter day Babylonian dragon/beast (coalition/kingdom). This dragon/beast was reigning as the number 6 kingdom during its first of three separate reigning periods named confusion (Babylon). Five previous kingdoms in Revelation 17:10 had already fallen when the number 6 kingdom of latter day Babylon began to reign. Accordingly, the latter day Babylonian beast was reigning in spiritual Goshen as the number six kingdom for 1290 days, which ended 3½ days after the end of the first 2300-day period.

The USA again caused the union of nations to unite in agreement to enforce on any non complying nation the USA's ideals that it envisions for the world. From that time, the union of nations was reigning in spiritual Canaan for 1290 days of its second reigning period as the seventh kingdom. This 1290-day reigning period ended 3½ days after the end of the second 2300-day.

The USA will again cause the union of nations to unite in agreement to enforce on any non complying nation the USA's ideals that it envisions for the world. From that time, the union of nations will be reigning in spiritual Canaan for 1290 days of its third reigning period as the “eighth” kingdom (see Revelation 17:10, 11). This “eighth” reigning kingdom (beast/coalition) is the “image” of the previous beast (kingdom/coalition), which reigned over the world from within the spiritual land of Canaan as the seventh kingdom. Hence, it is the same seven-headed ten-horned beast (kingdom/union of nations) of latter day Babylon/confusion that is united (healed) each time by the latter day false prophet (USA) during the time latter day Moses is revealing his message from the scroll of life. The seven-headed ten-horned beast's final reigning period of 1290 days will end by a rock’s impact in the USA 3½ days after the end of the third 2300-day period.

The seven-headed ten-horned beast’s name is Babylon/confusion, as written in Revelation 14:8. This beast (union of nations) will have reigned as the same sixth kingdom during three separate periods. Its number of 6 (because its the sixth kingdom) is written as 6, 6, and 6. This reveals that the same latter day beast (kingdom/union of nations) of confusion will have reigned as the number six kingdom three separate times. During the seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast's first reign as the sixth kingdom, latter day Moses was revealing the visions and oracles written beneath six seals. During this same beasts' second reign as the seventh kingdom, latter day Moses was revealing the visions and oracles written on six angels with trumpets. During the same beast's third reign, latter day Moses will be revealing the six lights and six thunders of the seventh angel with trumpet. Hence the same number 6 kingdom rules three separate times.

The sixth kingdom (union of nations) reigned for 1290 days until the union of nations became divided in enforcing the USA's ideals. The seventh kingdom (union of nations) reigned for 1290 days until the union of nations became divided in enforcing the USA's ideals. The eighth kingdom reigns for 1290 days until the union of nations are divided in enforcing the USA's ideals when a rock impacts the USA.

After five kingdoms had fallen, the number 6 (sixth) kingdom (dragon/beast) reigned as the sixth kingdom. Thereafter, the same number 6 (sixth) kingdom (beast) reigned as the seventh kingdom. Thereafter, the same number 6 (sixth) kingdom (beast) shall again reign but as the eighth kingdom. This is the reason why there are three sixes (666) to count (see Revelation 17:10, 11).

In the past type, the lamb like beast with two horns and one head represented the kingdom of Judah, which was situated in the southern half of Palestine/Canaan. Its one head represented the capital city of old Jerusalem. The two horns of its head represented the tribe (horn) of Judah and the tribe (horn) of Benjamin, which were both (two horns/tribes) in the southern kingdom/nation of Judah. When King Nebuchadnezzar of old Babylon was ruling over old rebellious Jerusalem according to the word of the Prophet Jeremiah, the rebellious leadership of Jerusalem rebelled three separate times against the word of Elohiym by refusing to remain part of old Babylon's kingdom as advised by Jeremiah the prophet. These three rebellions by old Jerusalem typify the three rebellions of latter day Babylon against latter day Jeremiah's (latter day Moses') message. Latter day Moses' message revealed from beneath six seals, then six angels with trumpets, and thereafter revealed from six lights of the seventh angel with trumpet to warn of the imminent rock's impact and effects in the USA.
