Chapter 13

Revelation 13:1 And I {Apostle John} stood{while in the spirit} 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 {equated with the seven divided parts of old Canaan in which dwelt the tribes/horns of old Israel, but in the latter days is a figurative number that represents all ruling capitals/heads of allied Christian nations} and TEN HORNS {equated with the old ten tribes situated in the tribes of Judah and Joseph in old Canaan, but in our day equated with allied Christian nations}, and UPON his HORNS {tribes/nations} TEN CROWNS {based on the past type when the old tribes of Israel were reigning in old Canaan, but in the latter days the ten horns represent all the nations/horns of allied Christian nations dwelling in latter day spiritual Canaan}, and upon his HEADS {foreheads/minds} the NAME of BLASPHEMY {because their way of thinking concerning this world's supposedly long future is contrary to the two witnesses' written visions and oracles, that prophesy of the four horses and four riders bringing an end to the USA, surrounding nations, and world during each reigning period of the latter day Babylonian beast}.

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 latter day kingdom made of allied Christian nations) is based on the past type when ten tribes (ten horns) of old 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 were referred to as the one kingdom of Israel.

The verse in Revelation 13:1 reveals the latter day Babylonian beast healing in spiritual Canaan to rule during its third reigning period. Before that time when the latter day Babylonian beast's first reigning period ended in spiritual Goshen of spiritual Egypt, it figuratively traveled across the spiritual wilderness and rose up in spiritual Canaan, where the latter day Babylonian beast ruled during its second reigning period and was thereafter wounded (became a divided kingdom). Thereafter, the divided nations of the latter day Babylonian beast agree to unite as allied nations. Hence the allied nations rise as one kingdom (latter day Babylon) while in spiritual Canaan to enforce their power and rule during their third reigning period. This third reigning period of the latter day Babylonian beast ends (divides) at the end of the sign of Jonah. At that time, the super volcano erupts momentarily with a great earthquake, as the two witnesses' written visions and oracles (pertaining to the four riders and their four horses) rise from lying dead for three and a half days in the USA's land to live again.

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

In the Book of Revelation, a nation is represented by a river. All rivers (nations) flow to one place to create the figurative sea (kingdom), from which the healed kingdom (seven-headed ten-horned beast/kingdom) of the union of nations rises (united in agreement) three separate times to rule as the latter day Babylonian beast. 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 ruling capitals (heads) of the union of nations, while the beast’s ten horns represent all the nations (horns) of these ruling capitals.

The reason why the horns have crowns is that the latter day Babylonian beast (kingdom) is shown reigning in the latter day spiritual promised land of spiritual Canaan during its third reigning period. During its second reigning period in spiritual Canaan to the beginning of its third reigning period, it is equated with the first half of the one hour of temptation. During the latter day Babylonian beast's third reigning period in spiritual Canaan up to the time when the swelled to heaven super volcano (full of a lake of fire) explodes, it will still be dwelling in the latter day promised land for the second half hour of the one hour of temptation.

When this seven-headed ten-horned beast was reigning during its first of three reigning periods, it was the dragon/beast in spiritual Goshen of spiritual Egypt. After the latter day Babylonian beast's first reigning period began, latter day Moses 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/union of nations) first reigning period ended in spiritual Goshen, it spiritually traveled through the spiritual wilderness to then receive its kingdom in the latter day spiritual promised land. Then the allied nations united in agreement while in latter day spiritual Canaan (hence the reigning crowns on the horns) to rule again as the second reigning period as the latter day Babylonian beast. Sometime thereafter, the union of nations were no longer united in agreement to enforce the USA's vision on non complying nations, which represents the time when the latter day Babylonian beast was wounded (hence allied nations divided/wounded). However, the allied nations will again unite in agreement to enforce the USA's vision for the world on non complying nations when they unite to rule again as the third reigning period of the latter day Babylonian beast.

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 {the fifth reigning kingdom that gave its power to the first reigning period of the latter day Babylonian beast in spiritual Goshen, that then ruled as the number six kingdom} gave HIM {the latter day Babylonian beast that ruled as the number six kingdom in spiritual Goshen, number seven kingdom in spiritual Canaan, and rules again as the number eight 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 Israel and Jerusalem; 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 represent 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 parts of different 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 and Israel, as well as many other nations.

Latter day nations agreed to unite and enforce what the USA's leadership (false prophet) envisions for the world on a nation it esteems as rogue. The false prophet caused the union of nations to unite and occupy Iraq. Thereby this union of nations became the latter day seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian dragon (kingdom) reigning as the number six kingdom in the land of spiritual Goshen, until the union of nations (beast) divided against enforcing the USA's vision. Thereafter, the union of nations agreed again to unite and enforce what the USA envisions for the world on a rogue nation. The false prophet caused the revived union of nations to enforce its will and overthrow Libya. The union of nations were then ruling as the number seven kingdom (the latter day Babylonian beast) of confusion . During that time, the beast (kingdom/union of nations) reigned in the latter day promised land of spiritual Canaan during its second reigning period as the number seven kingdom, until the union of nations (beast) again became divided in enforcing the USA's vision for the world on rogue nations. Thereafter, the union of nations will again agree to unite to enforce what the USA envisions for the world on a rogue nation. During that time when the allied nations are united in agreement with what the USA envisions for the world's future, the union of nations (beast) will then be reigning as the number eight kingdom during its third/final reigning period of 1290 days. At the end of the 1290th day of latter day Babylon's third reigning period, the super volcano in the USA explodes with a great earthquake and then returns to its prior dormant state at the beginning of the sign of Jonah, which causes the union of nations (beast) to become divided over enforcing the USA's vision on rogue 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 kingdom (that ruled as the fifth 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{being the number 6 kingdom/the 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 what the USA envisions for the world and reign as the number seven kingdom in spiritual Canaan}, he must continue a SHORT SPACE {then becomes divided/wounded}.

*******

Revelation 13:3 And I saw ONE {referring to the leadership in the USA's ruling 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 second reigning period in spiritual Goshen} to DEATH {having no more influence}; and his deadly WOUND was HEALED {the leadership in the USA's capital/head unite and cause the union of nations to agree to enforce what the USA envisions for the world on rogue nations to become the latter day Babylonian beast rising to life in spiritual Canaan}: and ALL {nations of} THE WORLD wondered after the {latter day Babylonian} BEAST {during the third reigning period of the union of nations/seven-headed ten-horned beast/kingdom enforcing what the USA envisions for the world on rogue nations}.

At the end of latter day Babylon's second reigning period, the influence of the USA’s (false prophet’s) ruling capital (one head/false prophetess) was totally wounded (dead), having no influence to keep the union of nations (that reigned as the number seven kingdom) united in agreement to enforce what the USA envisions for the world on rogue nations. According to this weakness, the union of nation's (latter day Babylonian beast's) rule as the number seven kingdom came to an end. Some time thereafter, the wound heals. Then the latter day Babylonian beast (union of nations) will again be resurrected to life by the USA (false prophet) to rule over all nations as the number eight kingdom, enforcing what the USA envisions for the world on rogue nations. All nations of the world wonder (in awe) at the resurrected union of nations ruling as the number eight kingdom.

*******

Revelation 13:4 And THEY {peoples and nations}WORSHIPPED the DRAGON {former kingdom/union of nations that reigned as the number five kingdom and became the number six kingdom in spiritual Goshen} which gave power unto the BEAST {being the number seven kingdom/union of nations in spiritual Canaan that divided, but will again agree to unite and reign as the number eight kingdom to enforce what the USA envisions for the world on rogue nations}: and they WORSHIPPED the BEAST {union of nations reigning in spiritual Canaan as the number eight 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 allied nations with the USA is referred to as the latter day Babylonian beast. The beast (union of nations) 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 eight kingdom} 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, the USA is speaking of its ideals that it envisions for the world's future. These ideals blaspheme against what the two witnesses are prophesying during the same 1260 days concerning the super volcano exploding and erupting smoke and ash for five months}.

The seven-headed ten-horned beast's (union of nations') mouth is the leadership in the USA's ruling capital (capital/great whore/false prophetess) and nation (false prophet). The USA's leadership 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 of the four horsemen, that ride the white, red, black, and pale horses through the latter day land of spiritual Canaan and the world, as the world becomes dissolved by an overflowing and spreading lake of fire from the lifted-up to heaven super volcano. Power is given the latter day Babylonian beast (allied nations/kingdom) to continue promoting its democratic and capitalistic visions for the world’s future for 42 months (1260 days), which parallel the 1260 days that the righteous woman (new Jerusalem) is journeying through the second spiritual wilderness for 1260 days (see Revelation 12:6).

The latter day Babylonian beast’s reign as the eighth kingdom lasts 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 months, one mouth (being the leadership in the USA’s capital/false prophetess and the leadership of the USA's nation/false prophet) of its seven heads will be speaking of its visions for the whole latter day Babylonian beast. During the time when the visions and oracles written on six of seven lights (visions) and six of seven thunders (oracles) of the seventh angel with trumpet are being revealed, the confused visions of the false prophet and false prophetess blaspheme (contradicted) against latter day Moses’ message, that warns of the super volcano erupting smoke and ash for five months, followed by the four riders and their four horses being fulfilled. The 1290 days of the third reigning period of the latter day Babylonian beast end when the 2300-day period expires. At the expiration of these 1290 days, the latter day Babylonian beast (allied nations/kingdom) will be wounded to death (forever remain divided) when the super volcano erupts temporarily with a great earthquake at the beginning of the sign of Jonah. From that time, the divided allied nations will never again unite in agreement to enforce the visions of the USA (false prophet) on any nation.

Revelation 13:6 And HE {the latter day Babylonian beast/union of nations}OPENED HIS MOUTH in BLASPHEMY {contradiction} against GOD {first and last, beginning and end, bright star and morning star}, to blaspheme his NAME {Abaddon}, and HISTABERNACLE{being the immense mountain – equated with the temple – of the swelled to heaven super volcano, that overflowed and covered the world in a spreading lake of fire in the first timeline}, and THEM {three groups of redeemed} that dwell IN HEAVEN {dwelling upon the sea of glass above the lifted-up to heaven mountain of the super volcano during the judgment from the time the one like the son of man replayed the last generation and the three groups of redeemed entered new Jerusalem's ensign}.

During the judgment that is presently happening, the one like the son of man has been replaying over and over all generations. In Chapter 13 of the Book of Revelation, the one like the son of man is revealing what the leaders of the USA and allied nations will be doing during the remaining 1260 days of the 2300-day period, just as they had already done in the previous replay of all generations. In that time when the two witnesses are prophesying for 1260 days, the USA (mouth of the beast) will be promoting its democratic and capitalistic visions at the same time six of seven lights and six of seven thunders of the seventh angel with trumpet are revealing their messages of warning concerning the four riders and their white, red, black, and pale horses destroying the USA, surrounding nations, and the world. Accordingly, the USA's ideals that it envisions for the world’s future will be blaspheming against the written visions and oracles of God the father, as revealed by the son (one like the son of man/Lamb) of God during the judgment. These written visions and oracles of the living God (first witness/bright moon) are already sitting and reigning on throne (equated with the Ark of the testament) of intense light (equated with the Shekinah glory) above the swelled to heaven super volcano's immense mouth (equated with the tabernacle) full of a lake of fire, which had overflowed and covered the world.

The visions and oracles written on the scroll of life's first side reveal how the ideals of the false prophet (US nation's leadership) and false prophetess (USA’s leadership in the US capital) are also blaspheming against the three groups of redeemed, that are already dwelling in heaven within new Jerusalem (equated with a huge fiery whirlwind). New Jerusalem surrounds the lifted-up to heaven super volcano's immense mountain, full of a lake of fire. Near the end of the first replay of all generations, the three groups of redeemed had entered the fiery ensign to be standing on the sea of glass (equated with an immense sheet of hail) within new Jerusalem, just as they will enter the fiery ensign again near the end of the present replay of all generations.

All things existing and happening in the world and universe are being replayed to reveal things that had already existed and happened in previous replays of all generations. Accordingly, when the latter day beast (kingdom/allied nations) opens its mouth to denounce the message being revealed by the latter day messenger and his apostles and disciples during the 42 months before the end of the sign of Jonah, the mouth of the latter day beast will be speaking against people proclaiming latter day Moses' message who had already entered new Jerusalem's ensign to be on the sea of glass in heaven when the one like the son of man (Lamb) had replayed all generations, just as they enter new Jerusalem's ensign during each replay of the last generation, as replayed by the Lamb during the judgment. The latter day beast will speak against the message that prophesies of the immense 40-mile wide mouth of the swelled to heaven super volcano (full of a lake of fire) exploding, as each rider on his horse then begins being fulfilled on the USA, surrounding nations, and all the world.

Prior of the end of the sign of Jonah, the latter day Babylonian beast speaks against the two witnesses prophesying of the four riders and their four horses. Accordingly, this beast (union of nations) is speaking against the name of the creator (Abaddon/the Rock) and his dwelling place upon the sea of glass in heaven. The written visions and oracles of God the father (first witness/bright moon) and God's son (last witness/morning sun) are presently reigning on the sea of glass, during the judgment, as a bright light (Shekinah) above the swelled to heaven super volcano's immense mouth, that overflowed with a spreading lake of lava and covered the world.

*******

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 rogue nations the USA's ideals which the USA envisions for the world's future} to make WAR {when the two witnesses are prophesying for 1260 days before the sign of Jonah begins}with the SAINTS{latter day apostles/priests and disciples/elders}, and to OVERCOME THEM {the message proclaimed by the latter day apostles and disciples during the 1260 days will be overcome by leaders and influential people that speak and promote what the USA envisions for the world's future}: 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.

For 1260 days before the sign of Jonah begins, the latter day apostles and disciples will be proclaiming to the USA and surrounding nations what the two witnesses are saying concerning events that happen during the 1260 days and of the four horses and their white, red, black, and pale horses. At the same time when the two witnesses are prophesying for 1260 days before the sign of Jonah, the USA and other allied nations of the latter day Babylonian beast will be prophesying of what the USA envisions for the world's future. The USA's leaders with the latter day Babylonian beast will denounce the message of latter day Moses, as will religious scholars, volcanologists, scientists, and influential people. Accordingly, the message proclaimed by the latter day saints (latter day apostles and disciples) during the 1260 days will be overcome by what the leaders of the latter day Babylonian beast say to the nations. The USA and the union of nations, that enforce what the USA envisions for the world on rogue nations, will have the power to enforce (by using sanctions or military intervention) their ideals on any nation, kindred, tongue, and people.

*******

Revelation 13:8 And ALL {people of the USA and allied nations}that dwell upon the EARTH {land of spiritual Canaan} 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 contains everything that happened from the time the latter day messenger revealed a new message from beneath the first seal through to the time the world ends by an overflowing and spreading lake of lava, the new heaven and new Earth, and the time of the judgment}of the LAMB {representing the visions and oracles written on the first small part/son of God, that also contains the visions and oracles written on the last small part/God the father}SLAIN {totally rejected/slain in every generation} from the FOUNDATION {first generation/Genesis} of the world.

When a person living in the last generation does not believe latter day Moses’ message that reveals the Lamb (visions and oracles written on the first small part/son of God), 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 by the plagues that happen when the swelled to heaven super volcano (full of a lake of fire) explodes. Every person in the latter days that dies as a non believer will no longer be playing a part in life. Hence, they will have been blotted out of the last scroll/scroll of life (referred to as a book of life in the verses of Revelation). The scroll of life has already recorded all the things that existed and happened in the last generation, new heaven and new Earth, and continuing time of the judgment.

At present during the judgment, the Lamb's visions and oracles (written on the first small part of the seventh part of the scroll of life's other side) are replaying the last generation by also revealing God the father's written visions and oracles, that are written on the first small part of the seventh part of the scroll of life's first side. In the first timeline of the last generation, God wrote his visions and oracles on the scroll of life's first side. Thereafter when the one like the son of man began replaying all generations, the one like the son of man's visions and oracles wrote of the latter day messenger (who did not reveal a message during the first timeline of the last generation) revealing a new message from beneath the first seal through to the time of a new heaven and new Earth, the judgment period, and on.

During each replay of the last generation by the written visions and oracles of the one like the son of man (Lamb/morning sun), the rebellious people living in the last generation have already died and been blotted out of the scroll of life in previous replays of the last generation. From the time of a person's death, including those that are killed by the four riders and their four horses, the scroll of life can no longer write of the dead because the dead no longer have a part to play in life. Accordingly, the dead are not playing a part in continuing life in this old world or in the new world for the scroll of life to record in its writings. Therefore when the scroll of life reveals its written visions and oracles that replay the time of the new heaven and new Earth, only the three groups of overcomers among the living entered new Jerusalem's fiery ensign (radiating from within the fallen USA) to remain written in the scroll of life when it continued writing of them living in the new heaven and new Earth.

In every past generation that was replayed by the one like the son of man, a living prophet was chosen to reveal Elohiym's (two witnesses') message, which is according to the visions and oracles written on the first small part. The words of the visions and oracles written on the first small part are referred to as the Lamb's blood, 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 Abel revealed the Lamb’s written words (blood) to Cain. Hence the Lamb (message) 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. The new present truth message has been revealed to him from the visions and oracles written on the scroll of life's first side, that are written by the two witnesses (Michael/God the father and Gabriel/son of God). These two witnesses have already seen (witnessed) and recorded, as it were, on scrolls all things that existed and happened in every generation, which are replayed over and over during the judgment.

*******

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 figurative} SWORD must be KILLED with the SWORD {representing the two witnesses’ combined visions and oracles written on the first small part/Lamb that reveal the plagues loosed from the opened bottomless pit}. HERE {according to what is written in this verse} is the PATIENCE and the FAITH of the SAINTS {the spiritual temple's saints are the overcomers of every generation that believed a living messenger's message}.

The latter day seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast (kingdom/union of nations) has made (led) all nations captive by enforcing the ideals which the USA envisions for the world. This same kingdom will end up being captive in an overflowing lake of lava. Prior to the swelled to heaven super volcano (full of a lake of fire) exploding and releasing the four riders and their four horses onto the land, any nation that refuses to accept the USA's ideals (enforced by the latter day Babylonian beast/allied nations) 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 two edged (two witnesses') sword. According to the predictions in Revelation 13:10, the saints (spiritual priests and spiritual elders) wait patiently and have the faith that written biblical prophecies will be fulfilled, as revealed by the latter day messenger's message.

*******

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. The whole land is described by a seven-headed ten-horned dragon/beast} like a LAMB {is lamb-like, seemingly peaceful),and he SPAKE {with a lion’s mouth, as an adversary/Satan} as a DRAGON {the USA speaks like a roaring lion on behalf of the seven-headed ten-horned beast/dragon}.

In the past type, after King Solomon's death, the one kingdom of Israel was divided into two separate kingdoms: kingdom of Judah in the south and the northern kingdom. The lamb-like beast with one head and two horns is based on the old kingdom of Judah, which was in the southern half of Palestine/Canaan. The Lamb-like beast's 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 southern kingdom (nation) of Judah after the one kingdom of Israel separated into two separate kingdoms.

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 which the USA envisions for the world will quickly realize that the USA speaks like a ferocious dragon to implement sanctions or military intervention. It is the main 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 non complying/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. While the head is wounded, the capital's leadership is divided over military intervention or imposing sanctions on a non complying nation. During the 2300-day period, the USA's leadership in the capital (head) will unite in agreement to permit military intervention on a non complying/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{land} and THEM{people} 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 what the USA envisioned for the world's future during its rule as the seventh kingdom, being the latter day Babylonian beast's second reigning period}, whose deadly WOUND {divided leadership in the USA’s ruling capital/head} was HEALED {the USA's leadership unites in agreement 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, thereafter, gains the influence to cause the union of nations to again unite and agree to give their support in enforcing the USA's vision on any 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. These 1290 days are the remaining amount of days of the 2300-day period. The reunited union of nations will be worshiping the same ways that the previous union of nations was enforcing when it previously reigned as the number seven kingdom.

Revelation 17:8The 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 any non complying nation} out of the BOTTOMLESS PIT {of death}, and go into PERDITION {perdition/destruction when the swelled to heaven super volcano's immense mouth explodes and overflows with a lake of fire, that covers the world}: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book {scroll} of life from the FOUNDATION {from Genesis/beginning} of the world, when they behold the BEAST {number six kingdom/union of nations} that WAS{reigning}, and IS NOT, and YET IS {resurrects back to life}.

Revelation 17:11And 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 again 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{referring to the USA's awesome display of firepower from heaven when firing tens of thousands of fiery missiles on a non complying nation} COME DOWN {as a shower of fiery missiles} from heaven {sky}on the earth in the sight of MEN {these men refer to nations/tribes},

The USA will do great military wonders in the world's atmosphere (heavens), as it fires tens of thousands of missiles that descend as fire from the sky upon a rogue nation, that refuses to implement the ideals that the USA envisions for the world. The other nations (referred to as men inRevelation 13:13) see the overwhelming power of the USA’s military, as the USA rains an overwhelming amount of fiery missiles (fire from heaven) to kill a non complying rogue nation that the USA believes has or will make weapons of mass destruction.

*******

Revelation 13:14 And DECEIVETH THEM {people} that dwell on the earth by the means of those MIRACLES {shock and awe of the USA's firepower of its military wonders} which HE {lamb-like Beast/USA} had power to do in the sight of the BEAST {the seven-headed ten-horned latter day Babylonian beast/union of nations that had previously united and ruled as the seventh kingdom}; saying to them {divided union of nations} that dwell on the earth {latter day 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 any non complying nation, but this time ruling as the eighth kingdom} to the BEAST {referring to the previous seven-headed ten-horned beast/kingdom that ruled as the seventh kingdom when the union of nations were in agreement to enforce the USA's vision on a non complying nation}, 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}.

The USA will perform an overwhelming and awesome display of military firepower from the heavens upon a rogue nation. The USA’s fiery missiles will rain down on a non complying nation before the third reigning period of the beast begins. Its technological military prowess will be so impressive that the nations of the world are deceived. Accordingly, the false prophet (lamb-like beast/USA) will say to the union of nations that they need to unite and agree in enforcing the USA's vision on non complying nations. Thereby the union of nations will agree to unite and be the number eight kingdom ruling as the image (exact likeness) 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 union of nations to no longer be united in agreement 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 King 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 number eight kingdom, being the exact likeness/image of the previous union of nations ruling as the number seven kingdom} of the BEAST {being the seven-headed ten-horned Babylonian beast that represents the union of nations that reigned as the seventh kingdom}, that the IMAGE {union of nations re-uniting to rule as the eighth kingdom for 1290 days} of the {seven-headed ten-horned latter day Babylonian kingdom} BEAST {that enforced the USA's vision on a non complying nation when 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 unites and becomes 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 latter day spiritual Canaan} should be KILLED {kill rogue nations with an awesome display of military power and/or harsh choking economic sanctions}.

After the USA's awesome display of firepower from the heavens upon a rogue nation, 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. The union of nations will agree to unite and rule (their rule ends at the end of 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. At that time, the kingdom of latter day Babylon is 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 choking 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 caused by the spiritual wine cup full of the USA’s democratic and capitalistic ideals/spiritual wine that it envisions for the world's future} in their RIGHT HAND {by accepting the false prophet’s/USA’s ideals/spiritual wine cup full of wine}, or in their FOREHEADS {when a nation’s leadership drinks the spiritual wine, the intoxication of the false prophet’s ideals/wine influences the forehead/mind/way of thinking}:

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 will cause all nations (referred to as spiritual men) whether they are small or big, rich or poor to accept in their right hand the spiritual wine cup (since it is offered by the false prophet/false Elijah), which is full of democratic and capitalistic ideals which 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 {can not buy or sell when choking economic sanctions are enforced upon certain nations}, 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' written visions and oracles concerning 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 during three separate periods. Hence the number 6 kingdom/beast reigns as the sixth kingdom, seventh kingdom, and eighth kingdom} of his NAME {name of latter day Babylon/confusion}.

In our day, 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 of the beast 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, which 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 choking sanctions on that non complying nation.

A rogue 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). The rogue nation’s leaders in the ruling capital of their nation implement laws that align with the USA's ideals (enforced by the seven-headed ten-horned beast/union of nations), just as a person accepts a cup of wine into their hand and drinks the strong wine and the intoxication affects their forehead.

When a nation's leadership takes the USA's spiritual wine cup into its spiritual right hand and spiritually drinks the strong wine, it means a nation's leadership has accepted the ideals and implemented them into their nation's laws. This causes that nation to have the mark of the spiritual wine cup and spiritual wine in their spiritual right hand (acceptance) and forehead (way of thinking). 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 figuratively 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 (hence 6,6,6) 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 messenger} 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's leadership}; and his NUMBER {of 6} is{written three times as} SIX HUNDRED THREE SCORE AND SIX {666}.

The latter day messenger has the wisdom to reveal the true meaning of the number (digit) six (6), which is written three times as 6, 6, and 6. In Revelation 13:18, the latter day messenger is instructed to “count” the “number” of the latter day Babylonian beast (that has 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 numbers of six (one number six + one number six + one number six = three numbers of six). The latter day messenger counted how many digits (number sixes) are written inRevelation 13:18.

After five figurative kingdoms had fallen, 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. 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 the first of six seals during the first reigning period of latter day Babylon, 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 a non conforming nation. At that time, the union of nations were ruling as the latter day Babylonian dragon/beast (union of nations/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 named latter day Babylon began to reign.

Some time after the latter day Babylonian beast ended its first reigning period, the USA (latter day Babylon) again caused the union of nations to unite in agreement to become the latter day Babylonian beast, that reigned during its second reigning period. This healed beast then enforced on a non complying nation the USA's ideals that the USA envisions for the world. From that time, the union of nations (beast/kingdom) was reigning in spiritual Canaan during its second reigning period as the seventh kingdom.

Some time after the latter day Babylonian beast ended its second reigning period, the USA will again cause the union of nations to unite in agreement to enforce on a non complying nation the USA's ideals that the USA envisions for the world. From that time, the union of nations will be reigning in spiritual Canaan for 1290 days. These 1290 days are the beast's third reigning period as the “eighth” kingdom (seeRevelation 17:10, 11). This “eighth” reigning kingdom (beast/union of nations) is the “image” of the previous beast (kingdom/union of nations), that 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) named latter day Babylon/confusion that is united (healed) each time by the latter day false prophet (USA/latter day Babylon). During each of the three reigning periods of the latter day Babylonian beast, the latter day messenger is revealing his new present truth message from the visions and oracles written on the scroll of life's first side. The seven-headed ten-horned beast's third (final) reigning period of 1290 days will end when the super volcano in the USA explodes with a great earthquake at the beginning of the sign of Jonah, which happens at the end of the 2300-day period.

The seven-headed ten-horned beast’s name is Babylon/confusion, as written inRevelation 14:8. This beast (union of nations) will have reigned as the same number six 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, the latter day messenger was revealing the visions and oracles written beneath six seals. During this same beasts' second reign as the seventh kingdom, the latter day messenger was revealing the visions and oracles written on six angels with trumpets. During the same beast's third reign, the latter day messenger 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 before it divides and remains divided from the end of the sign of Jonah.

The sixth kingdom (union of nations) reigned until the union of nations became divided in enforcing the USA's ideals. The seventh kingdom (union of nations) reigned until the union of nations became divided in enforcing the USA's ideals. The eighth kingdom will reign for 1290 days until the super volcano explodes with a great earthquake at the beginning of the sign of Jonah, which causes the union of nations to become divided in enforcing the USA's ideals on rogue nations.

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 old 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 and Judah typify the three rebellions of the latter day Babylonian beast against latter day Jeremiah's (latter day messenger's) message. The latter day messenger's new present truth message was first revealed from beneath six seals, then six angels with trumpets, and thereafter is revealed from six lights of the seventh angel with trumpet to warn of the four riders and four horses, that are loosed on the USA and surrounding nations when the super volcano begins erupting smoke and ash and are loosed on all the world when the swelled to heaven super volcano (full of a lake of fire) explodes, as a lake of fire spreads throughout the USA, surrounding nations, and the world.
