Intro

Prophecies involving the Pope as the seat of the Antichrist: interpreting the meanings of the symbols of the Beast and of the Whore of Babylon (woman riding the beast) pictured in the chapter of Revelations.

Is the book of Revelation literal or symbolic?

The key for understanding the Book of Revelation is found at the front doorstep of the Book. Verse 1 says: "The Revelation...signified [Greek, sema--a sign] by his angel to his servant John."

Revelation is a book of signs, that is, symbolic language.

  • No wonder, Jesus always spoke in parables Matthew 13:34-35! He was not talking about literal "wheat" or "tares." Neither did Jesus speak to John in vision about literal beasts or "locusts." Only once in awhile are the parables or the symbols of Revelation translated. "The waters. . .are peoples." (Revelation 17:15).
  • Outsiders will not otherwise understand this symbolic language (Mark 4:10-12). "And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them" [21]
  • [It is] the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings [is] to search out a matter. Proverbs 25:2

The woman riding the Beast

The Woman

Who is the woman riding a beast with a gold cup in her hand?

  • Revelation 17:3 "So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."
  • Revelation 17:4 "And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication"
  • Revelation 17:5 "And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH."
  • Revelation 17:6 "And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration."
  • Revelation 17:7 "And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns."
  • Revelation 17:9 "And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth."
  • Revelation 17:18 "And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth."

Whore of Babylon (MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT)

Jean Paul II Funeral mass. Revelation 17: And the woman (the church) was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour
These are the colors of the Holy See, or the administrative arm of the Vatican. The Pope's aides wear purple vestments , with shirt sleeves that are scarlet from the elbow to the wrist and purple skull caps , while Cardinal Bishops wear black and scarlet. As for the Pontiff, he generally wears white under garments with a scarlet cape when he is there.
Judges 8:26 "...and purple raiment that was on the kings..
Purple is also used by the Vatican-Jesuit led Freemasons. Inside the Executive Chamber of the "House of the Temple", Home of The Supreme Council, 33°, Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry
Catholics pray repetitive words with Rosary Beads that were first invented in 1090 AD, by "Peter the Hermit" and made popular by St. Dominic in 1208 AD. Catholics believe that Mary appeared to St. Dominic in 1208 AD, at the church of Prouille and revealed the Rosary Beads to him. From this time, Catholics prayed 15 sets of 10 consecutive "hail Marys" in a row (150 times), in the Rosary. However, in 2003 AD, Pope John Paul added a new set of Mysteries, so now it is 20 sets of 10 "Hail Marys", (200 times in the Rosary, in total.) Catholics will vainly appeal to Psalm 136 that alternates the same phrase 26 times with 26 different blessings God gives us. It is not 26 in a row as with the rosary! This is also a song, not a prayer. Revelation 4:8 has "angels singing" not "men praying". [1]
Jean Paul II holding a Monstrance.

The Roman Catholic Church even admits the Monstrance to be a sunburst: "During the baroque period, it took on a rayed form of a sun-monstrance with a circular window surrounded by a silver or gold frame with rays."

The inscription of the columns on the central entrance door of St. John Lateran, the Cathedral of the Bishop of Rome.

It translates to “Sacred Lateran Church, Universally for the City and the World, Supreme Mother of Churches”, or “Holy Lateran Church, Mother and Head of all Churches in the City and the World”, a fulfillment of Revelation 17:5.

"Supreme Mother of Churches = Mother of Harlots"


Revelation 17:4-5
And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

Woman is a Church in prophetic language

  • Woman, Pure = True Church (Jeremiah 6:2 - "daughter of Zion, 2Corinthians 11:2, Ephesians 5:23-27, Revelation 12:1-2)
  • Woman, Corrupt = Apostate Church also called "Harlot" (Ezekiel 16:15-58; Ezekiel 23:2-21, Hosea 2:5; 3:1, Revelation 14:4)
    • The woman still symbolizes a church, but one which has committed spiritual adultery. Her cup is filled with fornications. According to the Bible, this represents a turning away from Christ and unfaithfulness to His Word. "Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that friendship of the world is enmity with God?" James 4:4. Although married to Christ, this church has been disobedient to His Word, taken the teachings of the world, His enemy, and therefore become a spiritual harlot. The fornications in the cup would constitute false teachings and doctrines that would be contrary to Christ, the true husband [22]

Woman is a Church and THE great (spiritual) city (of ROME)

She wears Purple and Scarlet colors

  • Revelation 17:4: "The woman was robed in purple and scarlet and bedecked with gold..."
  • Revelation 18:12: "Their merchandise is of gold, silver, precious stones, and pearls; of fine linen, purple, silk, and scarlet..."
  • Revelation 18:16: "Alas, alas for the great city that was robed in fine linen, in purple and scarlet..."
  1. Scarlet is the color of sin
    1. Isaiah 1:18 "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow."
  1. Purple is the color for a king's garments.
    1. Judges 8:26 "...and purple raiment that was on the kings.."
    2. Mark 15:17 "And they clothed him (Jesus) with purple, and platted a crown of thorns, and put it about his head..."
    3. Aslo see: Tyrian Purple (Imperial Purple (1,200 BCE)), Monsignor, Cardinal, Clergy (Archbishop & Bishop), Abbot > pervesion of the word "Abba" ( Matthew 23:9: "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven")

MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT

  • "MYSTERY"

This self-proclaimed "mother" church is also Mystery Babylon, the apostate church of Mysteries and the purveyor of Babylonian doctrinal confusion. (Note this quote of John Paul II from the Vatican Information Service press release dated 17 September, 1997):

Thanks to greater attention to the mystery of the Church and Mary's relationship with her, the Virgin has begun to be invoked more frequently as 'Mother of the Church.'

Mystery is also the term used by the Roman Catholic Church to refer to the Mass, specifically the Transubstantiation of the bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ. It is a key part of Catholic dogma. These are the words of the priest in Latin or English:

Hic est enim caix sanguinis mei, novi et aeterni testamenti: mysterium fidei, qui pro vobis et pro multis effendetur in remissionum peccatorum.
For this is the chalice of my blood, of the new and eternal testament: the mystery of faith', which for you and for many shall be shad unto the remission of sins.

The Catholic is also well familiar with many "mysteries" through the recitation of their Hail Marys and the rosary. There are 15 decades of prayer (150 recitations) and during each decade of ten recitations, the Catholic contemplates on one of the "mysteries" of the church, which are the Luminous Mysteries

Historical note: Roman Catholics borrowed the idea of praying with beads from the pagan religions who were already using them hundreds of years before: In 456 AD, Hindus are thought to have introduced the concept of praying with beads to the world. The earliest reference to a rosary (boberkhas) is in their "Jain Canon" (456 AD) These boberkhas had various numbers of beads 6,9,12,18,36 (any sub-multiple of 108) Islam (610 AD) uses a rosary of 99 beads, one for each of the names of God. Buddhists have 108 prayer beads on the string. The Rosary is of pagan origin and no Christian prior to 1000 AD used beads to pray. [23]

  • This, of course, is totally opposed to the teaching of the Bible, as per Matthew 6:7 "But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking."


Mother of Harlots

"When the early church departed from God and imbibed pagan errors, she became Babylon." --Quoted From -- the International Sabbath School Quarterly, Feb. 29, 1896 "It was by departure from the LORD, and alliance with the heathen that the...church became a harlot, and Rome, corrupting herself in like manner by seeking the support of worldly powers, receives a like condemnation. " --Quoted From-- The Great Controversy, Pg 382 [24]


"There is but one universal (Roman Catholic) Church of the faithful, outside of which no one at all can be saved" (Pope Innocent III, Fourth Lateran Council, 1215.)


"[The Holy Roman Church] firmly believes, professes and teaches that none of those who are not within the Catholic Church, not only Pagans, but Jews, heretics and schismatics, can ever be partakers of eternal life, but are to go into the eternal fire 'prepared for the devil, and his angels' (Mt. xxv. 41), unless before the close of their lives they shall have entered into that Church; also that the unity of the Ecclesiastical body is such that the Church's Sacraments avail only those abiding in that Church, and that fasts, alms-deeds, and other works of piety which play their part in the Christian combat are in her alone productive of eternal rewards; moreover, that no one, no matter what alms he may have given, not even if he were to shed his blood for Christ's sake, can be saved unless he abide in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church." (Mansi, Concilia, xxxi, 1739.) (Pope Eugene IV, Bull Cantate Domino, 1441). [25]

  • The inscription at the base of the columns on either side of the central entrance door of St. John Lateran, the Cathedral of the Bishop of Rome, the pope. It reads:


SACROS(ANCTA) LATERAN(ENSIS) ECCLES(IA)
OMNIUM URBIS ET ORBIS
ECCLESIARUM MATER
ET CAPUT.


  • It translates to “Sacred Lateran Church, Universally for the City and the World, Supreme Mother of Churches”, or “Holy Lateran Church, Mother and Head of all Churches in the City and the World”, a fulfillment of Revelation 17:5.


And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
  • Another proof that she is a mother of Harlots [26]
    • Revelation 18:6-7: "Repay to her what she herself has paid [to others] and double [her doom] in accordance with what she has done. Mix a double portion for her in the cup she mixed [for others]. To the degree that she glorified herself and reveled in her wantonness [living deliciously and luxuriously], to that measure impose on her torment and anguish and tears and mourning. Since in her heart she boasts, I am not a widow; as a queen [on a throne] I sit, and I shall never see suffering or experience sorrow"
    • Isaiah 47:7-8: "And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it. Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children."
    • The Vatican said on Tuesday Christian denominations outside Roman Catholicism were not full churches of Jesus Christ.

Gold Cup

Pope John Paul II, dressed in purple, holds a golden cup, during the Papal Apology Mass on March 12th, 2000. Some Cardinals in attendance wore both prophetic colors of purple and scarlet.
Eucharist wafer ritual based on the transubstantiation illusion - a symbolic form of cannibalism [3] (bread -> flesh, wine -> blood). This is an occult ritual enacting the repetition of the sacrifice that Yah'shua (Jesus Christ) did once for the sins of the world
Jeremiah 51:7
Babylon was a golden cup in the Lord's hand, making all the earth drunken. The nations drank of her wine; therefore the nations have gone mad.
Revelation 17:6
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

Abominations and filthiness of her fornication

Blood of the Martyrs and the Saints

Revelation 17:6: " I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus"

Hundreds of Protestant Christians were promptly burned at the stake for adhering to such anti-Catholic and, according to the papacy, “evil” thoughts; and many more Protestants had to flee for their lives into neighboring countries. But it was pope Innocent_III who first instituted the office of the inquisition, which was also officially sanctioned by subsequent popes — Gregory IX in 1233, Clement VII in 1380, Leo X in 1531, et al. The slaughter of countless thousands (millions by some accounts) of innocent Bible believing Christians was the result of this ‘holy’ inquisition, a diabolical practice that continued for several centuries in various countries (France, Spain, Holland, Portugal, Italy, et al). The members of this order, the Dominicans, have ever since been the principal inquisitors in every country into which that horrible tribunal has been introduced (American Dictionary of the English Language, Webster, 1828, 1911; Dictionary of Saints 1980; Book of Martyres, Charles A. Goodrich, Hartford, printed by Philemon Canfield, 1830, pp.85,86,103; Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary 1999). Authorized by the Pope(s), the Crusades — the so called “Holy Wars(1095-1272); the French Wars of Religion (1562-98); the Thirty Years' War (1618-48) — were a series of wars fought against Bible believing Christians and others who opposed the papacy and rejected the teachings of the Roman Catholic church (The Cambridge Factfinder 1994, pp. 175,176). Unfortunately, this information has been largely suppressed in the Catholic community, as Catholic apologists have used diversion techniques and other methods to steer both Catholics and non-Catholics alike away from the truth. With the amount of misinformation and distortion of facts being disseminated over the years, it is no wonder why most Catholics know little or nothing about the true history of their church, as the hierarchy of the church of Rome has done its best to conceal these disturbing facts and re-write its own history. [29]

Carcassonne, bastille and headquarters of the papal inquisition in southern France during the 13th Century. The focal point of persecution were the Waldenses and Albigenses, keepers of the 7th day Sabbath. [4]

In the 1100s and 1200s, a gradual renewal of the true gospel in Europe prompted persecution from the “official” Church. This led to one of the bloodiest periods in known history. For the next few hundred years, the Vatican’s pursuit of “heretics” was relentless. The Roman church was able to maintain and enhance its political strength by torturing and executing Christians who opposed them. Truly Christian groups such as the Waldenses and Albigenses, who would not bow to Rome’s authority, were hunted down and put to death. This persecution of the saints has been recorded in Foxes Book of Martyrs and other historical writings. [30]

Numerous Popes promulgated bulls, official documents, which encouraged torture and murder of those who opposed the Roman Catholic religious system. The methods of gruesome torture devised during the period of the Inquisition are a testimony to the corrupt influence of Satanically-inspired human beings apart from God. Ten thousand Huguenots (French Protestants) were killed in the bloody Paris massacre on St. Bartholomew's Day, 1572. The French king went to mass to return solemn thanks that so many heretics were slain. The papal court rejoiced at the news, and Pope Gregory XIII in grand procession, went to the Church of St. Louis to offer thanks. Inquisition was ordered by papal decree and confirmed by Pope after Pope.

The medieval castle of Carcassonne, housed the famous bastille of the inquisition in southern France. Being the center of persecution of the Albigenses and Waldenses, the castle now houses the largest collection of torture implements of Europe in its museum. At the present time it is closed to the public. [5]
"There was no village of the Vaudois valleys but had its martyrs. The Waldenses were burned; they were cast into damp and horrid dungeons; they were smothered in crowds in mountain caverns, mothers and babes, and old men and women together; they were sent out into exile in the winter night, unclothed and unfed, to climb the snowy mountains; they were hurled over the rocks; their houses and lands were taken from them; their children were stolen to be indoctrinated with the religion which they abhorred. Rapacious individuals were sent among them to strip them of their property, to persecute and exterminate them. Thousands of heretics" or Waldenses, "old men, women and children, were hung, quartered, broken upon the wheel, or burned alive and their property confiscated for the benefit of the king, and Holy See."-Thompson - The Papacy and the Civil Power [31]

This does not detract from Hitler's Pope, Pius XII, who abetted the Nazi regime. Hitler would never have come to power had it not been for Catholic support. While Jews and others died in Nazi concentration camps, the Pope and others who knew what was going on were silent. And, after the war, the church was instrumental in helping Nazis to escape via the infamous ratlines.

There appears to be nothing new, no change of heart, in the Roman system. Repentance, not political apologies, is the only avenue for those enmeshed in the Romish system of Babylon. The way to repent for papists is to renounce the Babylonish system, to come out of her.

The castle of Montsegur in the French Pyrenees mountains was the final refuge of the Albigenses in the 13th Century. These are the ruins of the fortified walls of the castle where the last of the Albigenses were exterminated.

"And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations." (Revelation 13:7)
This verse says the beast would fight against God’s people and defeat them. This coming statement is not intended to foster any ill towards another as this would be contrary to Christian teaching and not only that but over the centuries, many wonderful Christian people from the Catholic Church have done many outstanding deeds. But truth is truth and the sad truth is the Roman Catholic Church murdered and tortured between 50 and 150 million people as heretics.
The City of Trent in northern Italy was the place where the papal Council convened to break the power of the Protestant Reformation. At the Council, dominated by the newly organized Jesuit order, the bishop of Rheggio announced on January 18, 1562, that the Protestants could never defend Sunday sacredness if they continued to offer as their authority, "the Bible and the Bible only, for there is no Bible command for the sanctification of Sunday". The bishop claimed it was the power of the papacy that changed the day of worship.[6]
Wheels were adapted to many torturous u­ses. They could be part of a stretching rack, but medieval torturers were far too creative to leave it at that. Early torturers were fond of tying someone to a large wooden wheel, then pushing it down a rocky hillside. A more elaborate method involved a wheel mounted to an A-frame that allowed it to swing freely. The victim would be tied to the wheel, and then swung across some undesirable thing below — fire was always a good choice, but dragging the victim’s flesh across metal spikes also worked well. The wheel itself could also have spikes mounted on it, so the pain came from all directions. Instead of swinging, the wheel might turn on an axle. The difference was likely immaterial to the victims. [7]


Death of the Whore

"This statue (European Parliament building), standing in front of the Winston Churchill building, refers to ancient mythology and depicts one the most ancient representation of Europa. Its based on a story where Zeus disguised himself as a white bull in order to seduce the princess Europa who was gathering flowers. When she approached the bull and got on its back, the bull seized the occasion to run away with her and eventually rape her (I’m giving you the non-censored version of the story). So the woman (who represents Europe) on top of this bull is about to get raped. [8]

Revelation 14:8
And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
Revelation 17:15-17
And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
Revelation 18:7-9
How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,

Destruction of Rome

  • Revelation 14:8
    • And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
      • The great city "made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication" is ROME sitting on the seven hills. And as per Revelation 18:7-9 she will be "utterly burned with fire".
  • Does Un-biblical Zohar also agrees?
    • According to "Dr. J.R." of "Church of Prophecy in the News", ancient orthodox Jewish prophets in the Zohar had predicted the arrival of their Messiah in the year 2012. This ancient rabbinical dissertation claims that Rome will be destroyed in the Jewish calendar year 5773, which, in our calendar begins with the new moon of September 2012 and concludes a year later. [33]
"In the year seventy-three [2012 / 2013] the kings of the world will assemble in the great city of Rome, and the Holy One will shower on them fire and hail and meteoric stones until they are all destroyed, with the exception of those who will not yet have arrived there." Besides the obvious revelations of the Zohar prophecies, another thing that immediately stood out to me was how among other scholars of the implications of the year 2012, a few have pointed to a prophecy by Malachy O’Morgair, or "St. Malachy" as he is known to Catholics, having to do with "the last pope." This prophecy, taken from St. Malachy’s "Prophecy of the Popes," is among a list of verses predicting each of the Roman Catholic popes from Pope Celestine II to the final pope, "Peter the Roman," whose reign would end in the destruction of Rome. According to Malachy’s prophecy, the next pope (following Benedict the 16th) is to be the final pontiff, Petrus Romanus, or "Peter the Roman." He will assume authority during a time of great tribulation, and then "the "city of seven hills" will be destroyed, and the terrible and fearsome Judge will judge his people." [34]

The Beast

Revelation 13:1-5 (King James Version)
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?


What is less appreciated is that in this type of genre, an ancient style of writing called Apocalyptic writings, much of the imagery is well known and can fairly straightforwardly be interpreted. I cannot go into everything here so will sketch a few highlights. The first beast is said to:

  1. Get its authority from the dragon,
  2. Resemble a leopard, a bear and a lion,
  3. Have 7 heads and 10 horns (with 10 crowns), we know also that
  4. Everyone will worship this beast and no one can defeat it in battle.

Authority from the dragon

The Great Dragon lies at the heart of the Vatican. Curiously, one of the Popes adopted the winged serpent or dragon as his symbol on his heraldic shield. Here is the heraldic coat of arms of Pope Gregory XIII, 1572-1585 A.D., who is most known for initiating the calendar reform in use today, the Gregorian calendar. This is something you can confirm in the book The Pope Encyclopedia by Matthew Bunsen, published by Crown Trade Paperbacks page 163. [9]


The first point is fairly straightforward. The dragon, is identified as “the ancient serpent.” The allusion here is to the story of Adam and Eve in the first three chapters of Genesis; there the serpent is a crafty creature that tempts Adam and Eve to try to be like God and encourages them to disobey God’s commands.

See:


Revelation 12:9
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth :the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Resemble a Leopard, a Bear and a Lion

Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream and Daniel’s Vision [10] & [11]

There is a broad agreement among Jewish and Christian scholars that the kingdoms represented by Daniel's lion, bear and leopard, are the successive ancient kingdoms of Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece, followed by the fourth "terrible" beast, that is understood to be the Roman Empire. This conclusion is reached within the traditional continuous-historic context of prophecy. This is simply the view that bible prophecy is fulfilled steadily, as the era about which it is written gradually unfolds. This is the context in which virtually all Christians and Jews understand Old Testament prophecy. [35]

See:

7 Heads and 10 Horns and 7 crowns

The Seven hills of Rome represent the seven heads of that beast.

Revelation 17:9 "And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth."
"Mussolini and (Cardinal) Gasspari sign historic Roman pact. Pope Becomes Ruler Of A State Again". Rome, June 7.--From 11 o' clock this morning there was another sovereign independent State in the world. At that time Premier Mussolini, as Italian Foreign Minister representing King Victor Emmanuel--the first Italian Premier ever to cross the threshold of the Vatican--exchanged with Cardinal Gasparri, Papal Secretary of State, representing Pope Pius XI, ratifications of the treaties signed at the Lateran Palace on Feb. 11. By that simple act the sovereign independent State of Vatican City came into existence. -New York Times July 7, 1929
Revelation 12:3 (King James Version)
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

Seven heads


Seven heads seven heads

The Woman (church) who is sitting on the seven heads (mountains) represent 7 mountains/hills. The City of the Seven Hills is Rome with the Seven hills of Rome

  • Revelation 12:3 "Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads."
  • Revelation 13:1 "The Beast out of the Sea The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name."
  • Revelation 17:3 "Then the angel carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns."
  • Revelation 17:7 "Then the angel said to me: “Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns."
  • Revelation 17:9, "And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth."

Ten horns


Ten horns ten horns with Ten crowns 10 kings

  • An animal's horn may represent both a king and a kingdom
  • 10 Horns = 10 kingdom/regions? 10 Jesuit Assistencies - Club of Rome World 10 Divisions - 10 toes of the statue interpreted by Daniel
    • Revelation 17:12: "The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast.
    • Daniel 7:24: "And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
  • The 10 crowns represent the 10 kings that will rule the 10 kingdom/regions (10 horns) for one hour with the beast
Revelation 13:2 (King James Version)
[ The Beast out of the Sea ] And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.

Seven crowns


Seven crowns seven crowns

  • The Beast with 7 heads and 7 kings (Revelation 17:10) and 10 horns (Revelation 17:12)
  • The seven crowns represent 7 kings. But a king must need a kingdom! This is why in 1929 the Lateran treaty was signed and the Vatican became a sovereign state and the Popes became kings.

Everyone will worship this beast

All are adjoined under the vatican umbrella, worshiping their Pontifex Maximus. Jesus said there is no peace on THIS Earth. [13]

The Universal Church.: The word Catholic means Universal. So the Roman Catholic Church is claiming to be the Universal or Worldwide Christian Church, a claim of authority over all the Christians of the world. Catholics Currently 1.1 Billions (largest single church denomination)

  • The woman (church in prophetic language) of Revelation 17 sits on many waters (multitudes of people and tongues), representing authority over many people:
'Revelation 17:15
And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

The significance of Rome lies primarily in the fact that it is the city of the pope. The Bishop of Rome, as the successor of St. Peter, is the Vicar of Christ on earth and the visible head of the Catholic Church. Rome is consequently the centre of unity in belief, the source of ecclesiastical jurisdiction and the seat of the supreme authority which can bind by its enactments the faithful throughout the world.

Number of the Beast

“Sigilla Solis” or “Sun Seal” This amulet has the god of the sun standing on the lion. This indicated the sun's position in the constellation of Leo during the hot days of August. The back is inscribed “Nachyel,” meaning “intelligence of the sun” and the numbers 1 to 36. These numbers are arranged in such a way that the sum of any given row, column or diagonal is 111, and therefore the sum of all six rows or all six columns is 666.
This illustration is also a solar seal, but it honors the star Basilisco, which was the diminutive form of the Greek Basileus (king), thus meaning the same as the Latin regulus. Regulus is the only first magnitude star in the constellation of Leo. The sun and the moon are again clearly seen on this amulet and on the reverse side is the same arrangement of numerals with the actual figure 666 given as the total.

There is no doubt that the number of the beast is 666 and not 616 nor 216 (6x6x6) because threescore is an expression meaning three times 20. Revelation 13:18 "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."

Mark of the beast

666 is found in ALL standard barcodes (excluding postal barcodes)

Tattoo

The U.S. Department of Commerce Patent and Trademark Office which currently posts an "abstract for a Method for verifying human identity during electronic sale transactions": United States Patent 5,878,155

"A method is presented for facilitating sales transactions by electronic media. A bar code or a design is tattooed on an individual. Before the sales transaction can be consummated, the tattoo is scanned with a scanner. Characteristics about the scanned tattoo are compared to characteristics about other tattoos stored on a computer database in order to verify the identity of the buyer. Once verified, the seller may be authorized to debit the buyer's electronic bank account in order to consummate the transaction. The seller's electronic bank account may be similarly updated." [47]

Tattoos are an ancient tradition of pagan initiation rites. The tattoo bonds the initiate with the entity symbolized by the tattoo and enables him to communicate with that demonic power. The meaning and function of tattoos in initiation rites are explained in Chevalier's Dictionary of Symbols, which defines the tattoo as "the permanent mark of that initiation."

"In some pictures of a tattooed man we are faced by a permanent prayer to and identification with the heavenly powers, at the same time as a basic means of communication with them. Such is the most generalized meaning of tattooing bestowed in consequence of a rite of initiation which allows this communication to take place. At the same time, this initiation is a rite of admission into a social group and the tattoo is the permanent mark of that initiation, the badge of the tribe.
"All in all, tattooing belongs among symbols of identification and is interfused with all their magic and mystic potency. Identification always carries a double meaning: it tends to invest the individual concerned with the properties and strength of the creature or thing to which that person is assimilated and, at the same time, to immunize the latter against its potential power to cause harm. This is why tattoos depict dangerous creatures such as serpents or scorpions, or animals which are symbols of fertility, such as bulls or of power, such as lions, and so on. Identification also carries a sense of surrender or even of consecration to whatever the tattoo symbolically depicts. It then becomes a badge of fealty."
Like a wedding band which represents an indissoluble union of two people, the initiate's tattoo "becomes a badge of fealty" to the "creature or thing to which that person is assimilated". Since Lucifer aspires to be "like God", in his pride he will orchestrate a counterfeit fulfillment of the Bible prophecies concerning Jesus Christ. The terminology used in the Dictionary of Symbols to describe the initiation tattoo suggests that Lucifer will bond his followers to himself in a sacred marriage rite --- the Satanic equivalent of the Marriage of the Lamb, the Lord Jesus Christ, to His Bride. [48]

Non Material Mark

  • Sunday as a mark of authority of the Catholic church over Christianity
    • Another "Mark" but that doesn't fit with this prophecy, is the change of worship from Saturday to Sun-day. All those trying to explain the prophecies and proposing this hypothesis (that the mark of the beast is the change of the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday) exclude the unique part of "And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name". The reasoning is only accurate in a spiritual or religious realm, just as God made his Sabbath in the Old Testament required by the 10 commandments.
      • Even in a future theocratic one world order if some dictator impose a total commerce shutdown on Sundays to worship him, there is no relationship a priori to the commercial act of of buying and selling.

Uncertainity

  • According to Daniel Daniel 12:4 "But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." Some prophecies are sealed until the end of times, meaning some prophecies of the bible are not meant to be known/understood until close to the the time of it's fulfillment.
    • Taking as a focal point that "And that no man might buy or sell" for now we can only estimate/guess what some of the prophecies are about. In this case the best guess considering the evolution of money through history (barter > gold > cash > cashless) that the Mark of the beast is most probably a microchip/GPS or tattoo (combined with forced vaccinations?) that will be used for transactions purposes.


27: He (Philopater/Ptolemy IV)* proposed to inflict public disgrace upon the Jewish community, and he set up a stone on the tower in the courtyard with this inscription:
28: “None of those who do not sacrifice shall enter their sanctuaries, and all Jews shall be subjected to a registration involving poll tax and to the status of slaves. Those who object to this are to be taken by force and put to death;
29: those who are registered are also to be branded on their bodies by fire with the ivy-leaf symbol of Dionysus, and they shall also be reduced to their former limited status.”

Solomon's Temple

Todo: verses "Temple of God"

Illustration of Solomon's temple

Solomon's Temple, also known as the First Temple, was the temple in Jerusalem, on the Temple Mount (also known as Mount Zion), before its destruction by Nebuchadnezzar II after the Siege of Jerusalem of 587 BCE.

Second Temple

The Second Temple stood between 516 BCE and 70 CE, during which time it was the center of Jewish sacrificial worship. It was the second temple in Jerusalem, built to replace the First Temple which was destroyed in 586 BCE when the Jewish nation was exiled to Babylon.

Third Temple

Jesuit Novitiate studying the second Jerusalem temple [16]
Illustration from solomonstemple.com depicting a future 3rd temple of Solomon where the actual Dome of the Rock is located. This Temple would be built in the end days, and would then fulfill the prophecy upon which a future world (religious) leader impersonated by Lucifer/Satan (Man of Sin, Son of perdition) would declare himself to be God 2 Thessalonians 2:3-5
This is the model of the Third Temple fully designed and ready to be erected on Jerusalem's Temple Mount (under the Rome's legal power since 1993) after the Pope's present war on Islam. The men standing are all high-level American Scottish-Rite Freemasons. The Temple model is inside a Masonic temple evidenced by the Black and White checkerboard floor---the same kind of floor used in the torture rooms of the Holy Office of the Inquisition in Nuremberg, Bavaria. The gold to be used is now being stored in the major central banks of the world---especially the Jesuit Order's New York Federal Reserve Bank pictured in The Godfather I [17]
The view is north east looking at the outer courtyard and the main temple yard. The three outer gates which stand 10 stories tall each are can be clearly seen. The main temple is covered completely in gold and is 20 stories tall. [18]
  • Third Temple
    • The third temple in Jerusalem will be rebuilt in order for the Antichrist to declare himself to be God "in the house of god" which is Jerusalem (the city chosen by God that reflects the fulfillment of multiple prophecies concerning this remarkable city and its unique place in Gods will) where Solomon's Temple will be rebuilt. Jerusalem is mentionned over 750 times in the KJV.
    • Daniel 9:25-27 : "Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."
      • Abomination of Desolation
        • Matt 24:15 & Mark 13:14 : "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)."
        • Daniel 12:11: "And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days."
        • 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 : "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the Son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."
  • The Solomon Temple is the heart and soul of Freemasonry (See: Masonic symbolism)
    • It is known to every reader of the Bible and student of Solomon's days, that an amazingly detailed description of the Temple and its associated structures has been carried down from the mists of antiquity by the Scriptures. Lineal measurements, materials employed, and ornamental detail are so graphically presented that restoration of the Temple, at any time within a score of centuries past, awaited only the coming of a man with the vision to recognize its historic value, and the imagination to undertake the task." (Foreword, "The Bible and King Solomon's Temple in Masonry," by John Wesley Kelchner.)[49]
    • "Of all the objects which constitute the Masonic science of symbolism, the most important, the most cherished, by the Mason, and by far the most significant, is the Temple of Jerusalem. The spiritualizing of the Temple is the first, the most prominent and the most pervading, of all symbols of Freemasonry ... Take from Freemasonry its dependence on the Temple; leave out of its ritual all references to that sacred edifice, and to the legends and traditions connected with it, and the system itself would at once decay and die ...

    • Mackey makes this fact quite clear also: "Masonry has derived its temple symbolism, as it has almost all its symbolic ideas, from the Hebrew type ..." [Ibid] Since the Old Testament was written originally in the Hebrew, and the New Testament in the Greek, Mackey is clearly stating that Freemasonry is rooted in the Old Testament!
    • "The Freemasons have, at all events, seized with avidity the idea of representing in their symbolic language the interior and spiritual man by a material temple ... The great body of the Masonic Craft, looking only to this first Temple erected by the wisdom of King Solomon, make it the symbol of life; and as the great object of Masonry is the search after truth, they are directed to build up this temple as a fitting receptacle for truth ..."

All this goes hand in hand with Albert Pike plan for the New World Order ( through 3 World Wars ) explained in his letter to Giuseppe Mazzini [51]
"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time."

Important: Remember that on 9/11 in NYC 3 buildings fell. The twin towers as well as the WTC building 7 called Salomon Brothers building. The twin towers could be viewed as the twin pillars of Freemasonry (boaz and jachin) thus converting 9/11 into a freemason ritual, using the destruction of the "fake" salomon's building in NYC as a call for the reconstruction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem (and initiate the turmoil in the arabic countries).

Man of Sin

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. - II Thess. 2:3,4
Not Jesus, but rather the Beast ascending from the Bttomless Pit [19]
See previous, with Pope.[20]


The notion of the Son of Perdition / Man of Sin (John 17:12, 2 Thessalonians 2:3) and is a name commonly associated with the Antichrist (1 John 2:18 and 2 John 1:7), the Lawless One (Dan. 7 and 8), and the Beast of Revelation (Rev 13).

  • The Unholy Trinity ( See also: Alice Bailey "Hierarchy of Ascended Masters" )
    • The Unholy Trinity represents Satan, Antichrist, and the False Prophet. The separation of those 3 entities can be verified in the verses Revelation
      • Rev 19:20: "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone"
      • Rev 20:1-2 "And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years".

Pope

The title “Holy Father” appears only one time in the Scriptures and it refers to God, and God alone (John 17:11). The pope of Rome has, nonetheless, taken this title unto himself. But Jesus said to “call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” (Matt. 23:8-9) [55]

Tribulations

Seven seals

  • Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
  • In Revelation chapter 4 we see God seated on the throne in heaven, it is he who is sovereign over earthly events. We should notice first that only the Lamb (Jesus) is able to take the scroll from God and to break the seals and reveal its contents. Each of the four riders is summoned onto human history by one of the heavenly living creatures. Notice the phase -he was given a crown-, -was given power-, -do not damage the oil and the wine-, -were given power over-, all of this indicates that the four riders are under the sovereignty of God. [56]

White horse

Revelation 6:1 says: "I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals. Then I heard one of the four living creatures say in a voice like thunder, "Come!" I looked, and there before me was a white horse! Its rider held a bow, and he was given a crown, and he rode out as a conqueror bent on conquest." (6:1-2)

Another translation says, "a crown was given to him, and he went out conquering and to conquer" (NKJ). There are three different interpretations of this rider. [57]

  1. The International Bible Commentary, F.F. Bruce general editor, says,
    1. One long-established interpretation understands this of the victorious progress of the gospel, the rider on the white horse being Christ, as in 19:11. (p. 1607)
  2. The Zondervan NIV Bible Commentary puts forth the dominate evangelical view today, that it is the Antichrist. The commentator admits that the symbolism of the white horse is always "associated with righteousness and Christ," but rejects it because the other three horses clearly represent war and judgments. He goes on to say:
    1. The references in 19:11-16 to the rider on the white horse as "Faithful and True" and as one who judges and makes war with justice stands in contrast to the rider in 6:2, who is not faithful or true and who wages war for unjust conquest. Moreover, the Lamb opens the seals and would not be one of the riders, nor would it be proper to have an angelic being call forth Christ. Again, a "bow" would most naturally be connected with the enemy of God's people (Eze 39:3). . . . The evidence, however, seems to favor . . . the Antichrist and his forces that seek to conquer the followers of Christ. (Vol. 2, p. 1160-1161)
  3. The Wycliffe Bible Commentary by Moody Press, first published in 1962, also says it cannot be Christ because of the other three horses and quotes another commentator saying:
    1. "Can there be any doubt that this is the vision of antiChrist? It so resembles the real Christ that it deceives people, even many a reader of this passage!" (Thomas F. Torrance, The Apocalypse Today, p. 44).


Then the rider on a white horse is seen. This rider represents the leader of a peace movement; the color white represents peace. Then one can see that this particular rider has a bow but no arrows; he conquers without bloodshed and destruction. He is a great ruler for a crown is given to him. [58]

  • This would also confirm the prophecy of a One World Goverment where a peace agreement has been made, the 7 years covenant with the AntiChrist which will be broken at the middle point (3 1/2 years. )
  • Although he will be against faithful Christians and will mock God’s Word, the world will view him as a great leader and a man of peace. This man will be Satan’s counterfeit messiah (false prophet?). He will use deception and lies to "spin" his web of deceit and to conceal his true motives. [59]
  • This "man of peace" is most probably the same as the vision Daniel had in:
And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.


Differences between the white horse in Revelation 6 and Jesus on the white Horse in Revelation 19

  • In Revelation 19 Jesus has many crowns, but in Revelation 6 the rider has just one.
    • Revelation 6:2: "And I looked, and saw there a white horse whose rider carried a bow. And a crown was given him, and he rode forth conquering and to conquer"
    • Revelation 19:11-12: "After that I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse [appeared]! The One Who was riding it is called Faithful (Trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness). His eyes [blaze] like a flame of fire, and on His head are many kingly crowns (diadems); and He has a title (name) inscribed which He alone knows or can understand."

Red horse

Black horse

  • Revelation 6:5-6: When He broke open the third seal, I heard the third living creature call out, Come and look ! And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and in his hand the rider had a pair of scales (a balance). And I heard what seemed to be a voice from the midst of the four living creatures, saying, A quart of wheat for a denarius [a whole day's wages], and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not harm the oil and the wine! [II Kings 6:25]

Pale (green) horse

  • Revelation 6:7-8: When the Lamb broke open the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature call out, Come! So I looked, and behold, an ashy pale horse [black and blue as if made so by bruising], and its rider's name was Death, and Hades (the realm of the dead) followed him closely. And they were given authority and power over a fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword and with famine and with plague (pestilence, disease) and with wild beasts of the earth.

Souls under altar

  • Revelation 6:9-11: When the Lamb broke open the fifth seal, I saw at the foot of the altar the souls of those whose lives had been sacrificed for [adhering to] the Word of God and for the testimony they had borne. They cried in a loud voice, O [Sovereign] Lord, holy and true, how long now before You will sit in judgment and avenge our blood upon those who dwell on the earth? Then they were each given a long and flowing and festive white robe and told to rest and wait patiently a little while longer, until the number should be complete of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed as they themselves had been.

Sun/moon/star event

  • Revelation 6:12-17: When He [the Lamb] broke open the sixth seal, I looked, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun grew black as sackcloth of hair, [the full disc of] the moon became like blood. And the stars of the sky dropped to the earth like a fig tree shedding its unripe fruit out of season when shaken by a strong wind. And the sky rolled up like a scroll and vanished, and every mountain and island was dislodged from its place. Then the kings of the earth and their noblemen and their magnates and their military chiefs and the wealthy and the strong and [everyone, whether] slave or free hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, And they called to the mountains and the rocks, Fall on (before) us and hide us from the face of Him Who sits on the throne and from the deep-seated indignation and wrath of the Lamb. For the great day of His wrath (vengeance, retribution, indignation) has come, and who is able to stand before it?

Seven Trumpet Judgments

There are three key differences between the Trumpet judgements and the Vial/Bowl judgments:

  1. Firstly, the Trumpet judgments are plagues upon nature, while the Vial/Bowl judgments are direct assaults against humanity.
  2. Secondly, the Trumpet judgments are partial (namely, they affect 1/3 of what they plague) while the Vial/Bowl judgements will destroy or harm all of what they assault.
  3. Lastly, the Trumpet judgments offer a possibility of redemption, while the Vial judgments do not; the Vial judgments are a literal assault on those who have taken the mark of the Beast, and those who take it are irredeemable. (wikipedia)

    • "The second angel blew [his] trumpet, and something resembling a great mountain, blazing with fire, was hurled into the sea. And a third of the sea was turned to blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea perished, and a third of the ships were destroyed."

1/3 waters wormwood

  • Revelation 8:11
    • "And the name of the star is Wormwood. A third part of the waters was changed into wormwood, and many people died from using the water, because it had become bitter."

1/3 Sun/moon/stars

  • Revelation 8:12
    • "Then the fourth angel blew [his] trumpet, and a third of the sun was smitten, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that [the light of] a third of them was darkened, and a third of the daylight [itself] was withdrawn, and likewise a third [of the light] of the night was kept from shining."

Abaddon from pit & locust

  • Revelation 9:1-3, 9:11
    • "Then the fifth angel blew [his] trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from the sky to the earth; and to the angel was given the key of the shaft of the Abyss (the bottomless pit). He opened the long shaft of the Abyss (the bottomless pit), and smoke like the smoke of a huge furnace puffed out of the long shaft, so that the sun and the atmosphere were darkened by the smoke from the long shaft. Then out of the smoke locusts came forth on the earth, and such power was granted them as the power the earth's scorpions have."
    • "Over them as king they have the angel of the Abyss (of the bottomless pit). In Hebrew his name is Abaddon [destruction], but in Greek he is called Apollyon [destroyer]."
    • The bottomless pit/shaft might be the center of the earth. See Hollow Earth theory

Euphrates 4 angels

  • Revelation 9:13-14
    • Then the sixth angel blew [his] trumpet, and from the four horns of the golden altar which stands before God I heard a solitary voice, Saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, Liberate the the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.
    • Is there a similitude/paralellism between the 4 angels of Revelation 9:13-14 with the 4 Horsmen of the apocalypse?

Days of voice & kingdoms are Lord's

Scorching sun

  • Revelation 16:8-9:Then the fourth [angel] emptied out his bowl upon the sun, and it was permitted to burn (scorch) humanity with [fierce, glowing] heat (fire). People were severely burned (scorched) by the fiery heat, and they reviled and blasphemed the name of God, Who has control of these plagues, and they did not repent of their sins [felt no regret, contrition, and compunction for their waywardness, refusing to amend their ways] to give Him glory.

Seat of the beast

  • Revelation 16:10-11:Then the fifth [angel] emptied his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom was [plunged] in darkness; and people gnawed their tongues for the torment [of their excruciating distress and severe pain].

Kings of east & gathering to

  • Revelation 16:12:Then the sixth [angel] emptied his bowl on the mighty river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to make ready a road for [the coming of] the kings of the east (from the rising sun).

It is done

  • Revelation 16:17-21:Then the seventh [angel] emptied out his bowl into the air, and a mighty voice came out of the sanctuary of heaven from the throne [of God], saying, It is done! [It is all over, it is all accomplished, it has come!] And there followed lightning flashes, loud rumblings, peals of thunder, and a tremendous earthquake; nothing like it has ever occurred since men dwelt on the earth, so severe and far-reaching was that earthquake. The mighty city was broken into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And God kept in mind mighty Babylon, to make her drain the cup of His furious wrath and indignation. And every island fled and no mountains could be found. And great (excessively oppressive) hailstones, as heavy as a talent [between fifty and sixty pounds], of immense size, fell from the sky on the people; and men blasphemed God for the plague of the hail, so very great was [the torture] of that plague.
