Through this time of study different aspects of this identity will emerge.
- It is a man
- It is a devil
- It is a political organism
The Beast as a Political organism.
Daniel the prophet speaks about a beast, when he is receiving visions of the lastdays.He is clearly beside himself, you could well imagine being in a state of being and you are receiving images from the Spirit of God.We certainly are not talking about images brought on by stupification through drugs or demonic influence,these means have been explored, and are used for lack of the Spirit of God.
Daniel’s book confirms: He is a man of God of excellent character and is approaching the Holy God!
Daniel tells us that he can see a Beast, it has a number of order and description of majesty.
It is the forth in line starting in Daniel’s present,the Babylonian kingdom.Daniel does most of his prophesying concerning that kingdom and its king, but through the revelations about it, God continues to reveal the information leading up to and concerning last days.
The information comes as a summary and and illustration.The “Image” firstly speaks of four kingdoms, I have already spoken about the first, the last portion of this vision is the feet, this is the last beast.It is shown, as “feet” made of iron, with toes of clay.This beast is the nastiest and most powerful,but has weakness, the feet are of iron as leftovers from the previous kingdom but something NEW has taken place!
He explains it as being partly strong and partly weak, could be meaning the place of women in our modern political arena compared with the ancient kingdoms.It definitely would not be a non-sign of the times.Considering the female persuasion and gentleness no doubt has made a difference in modern politics, just may of brought us some time, as we haven’t all been blown up in nuclear war yet, although I don’t think of this as a lasting position.
It is important to understand, that it is not a so-called Christian kingdom, but a gentile kingdom.God’s people shouldn’t be lulled into a false sense of security, we can study that aspect of lastdays from Revelation 13 from the Evangelist John. It speaks of two Beasts,the first changes into another character.
Unless our endtimes are bolstered and framed by the three proven pillars of our faith.The pillars are “The Prophets,The Apostles and Jesus Christ the Chief Capstone!
Revelation 13 fits perfectly with Daniel’s prophecy about the forth Beast.The first beast of Revelation comes out of the “sea” now watch this!This sea is the Judeo-Christian kingdom,we see the United Kingdom stage when the Monarchy of Britain and Europe took over most of the known earth.She was as Daniel states and John in Rev 13,The Seven Headed Ten horned monstrosity.Think about it, the judgements in that kingdom, the severity of King Charles 1, beheaded for backsliding into the Spanish Catholic System.A very gruesome way to govern,people bowed low in the streets.
Seven Heads that looked like dragons Charles 1 was replaced by Oliver Cromwell as Lord Protectorate,it didn’t work so the world established the Parliamentary System joined with the Monarchy,Charles II,that progressed and the Leaugue of Nations developed. The now and last gentile empire the United Nations grew out of it!
The Second Beast of Rev 13 looks like a LAMB and speaks like a DRAGON!Think about it “WORLD PEACE”,”FEMA CAMPS”!
I have compiled this information to make it quite easy to understand as I believe it is crucial in our days.Yes we have the date mongers and don’t get me wrong I love some of that info, but what God has shown me here will let you understand endtimes more definitely.
So we have Daniel and John’s visions about the Beast as a Political identity what does Jesus say about it?
Jesus referes to Daniel as the Revelation of John was not written at the time.Jesus tells us it is all over when the ‘Abomination of Desolation” is set up!
What is a ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION?
Firstly an abomination is something against God.We can imagine God as anything and everything, and we wouldn’t be wrong, to understand Him and His Message to us we must get closer. He is the God of all Creation Elohim,(The Israelite speaking to non-Israelites normally used Elohim, sometimes with the qualification ‘God of heaven’.
H. L. Ellison, “The Theology of the Old Testament,” in New International Bible Commentary, ed. F. F. Bruce (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1979), 57.)
He is also a personal God in the guise of Jesus Christ,the letter to the Colossians, in chapter 1:15,19 it states that all the fullness dwells in Jesus. When He was on earth as THE LAMB of God.We must picture God as a multifaceted multi purposed God in Genesis chapter 1,we actually see God the Father speaking to Jesus the Word, and to the Holy Spirit and all angels when He said “Let there be light”! Also “Let us make man in Our image and Likeness”!
See when the abomination is spoken of by the Word of God it is precisely speaking about an abomination against God,we can search the Bible and see what God says about abominations:
18:9,10When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times
Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord.
This suggests that the OBOMINATION in the last gentile kingdom is against God’s WAY!The kingdom has consulted with other forms of enlightenment as the first was! Daniel 2:2 proves this.The king did consult Daniel after he consulted the abominable practicioners.
So we see that the Abomination that causes Desecration is a practice of knowledge, the government of the time is consulting.
Jesus’ word tying in with Daniel’s and John’s should dispel all doubt!We know here in Australian history there was a time that the Police Force did that very same thing, it is probably shunned now, but under certain government it was used to help in finding criminals.Disgraceful!
The Beast as a political organism is the United Nations a political identity established to lead and govern the modern world into a better way of peace and security.It is God ordained!It has been prophesied to be.It is a gentile kingdom, it has elements of strength and weakness.It is a One World Government!
God’s people do not perish with knowledge!We are a government regardless of whether it is a World government.Jeremiah was told by God to tell His people to settle down and work within the confines of another kingdom, and to prosper!
