UN General Assembly Votes in Favor of Palestinian Statehood

Curt Here...

Today the U.N. General Assembly voted to upgrade the status of the Palestinians to a nonmember observer state at the United Nations.  This essentially gives the Palestinians much more credibility in the international world and gains them access to U.N. agencies and international bodies, which they can now utilize to heap more international pressure on Israel.  However, this did not unilaterally declare a state of Palestine, but it has very craftily laid the groundwork for future prophetic events.  

This website along with many other prophecy websites have speculated for many years that a State of Palestine could be created via U.N. Mandate, which in turn could then be enforced militarily by the international community.  In my very humble opinion this could create exactly the scenario that the Prophet Joel wrote about and that Jesus spoke of in the books of Mathew and Luke.

Please consider.

Joel 3:1-2
1 "For behold, in those days and at that time, When I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,

2I will gather all the nations And bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there On behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, Whom they have scattered among the nations; And they have divided up My land.

Luke 21:20-22
20 "But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then recognize that her desolation is near.
21 "Then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains, and those who are in the midst of the city must leave, and those who are in the country must not enter the city;
22 because these are days of vengeance, so that all things which are written will be fulfilled.

Mathew 24:15-16
15 "Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand),
16 then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains.

By giving the Palestinians observer status today, it has legitimized their claim for statehood on lands that Israel currently claims.  These areas are East Jerusalem, the Temple Mount, Judea and Samaria.  It is just a matter of time until the International Community decides to force Israel to give these lands to the Palestinians.

I personally don't know how quickly the above scenario could play out.  Will it be a few weeks, months or years? But it is clear that things are not as they should be and it is only a matter of time until our Savior returns to set things right.

Stay Tuned.



JERUSALEM –The U.N. General Assembly voted Thursday in favor of Palestinian statehood, after the Palestinians asked it to recognize a non-member state of Palestine in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and east Jerusalem, and the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

The resolution upgrading the Palestinians' status to a nonmember observer state at the United Nations was approved by a more than two-thirds majority of the 193-member world body -- a vote of 138-9, with 41 abstentions.

Real independence, however, remains an elusive dream until the Palestinians negotiate a peace deal with the Israelis, who warned that the General Assembly action will only delay a lasting solution. Israel still controls the West Bank, east Jerusalem and access to Gaza, and it accused the Palestinians of bypassing negotiations with the campaign to upgrade their U.N. status.

The United States immediately criticized the historic vote. "Today's unfortunate and counterproductive resolution places further obstacles in the path peace," U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice said.

And U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called the vote "unfortunate" and "counterproductive."

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the speech by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to the General Assembly shortly before the vote "defamatory and venomous," saying it was "full of mendacious propaganda" against Israel.

Abbas had told the General Assembly that it was "being asked today to issue the birth certificate of Palestine." Abbas said the vote is the last chance to save the two-state solution.

After the vote, Netanyahu said the UN move violated past agreements between Israel and the Palestinians and that Israel would act accordingly, without elaborating what steps it might take.

Just before the vote, Israel's U.N. ambassador, Ron Prosor, warned the General Assembly that "the Palestinians are turning their backs on peace" and that the U.N. can't break the 4,000-year-old bond between the people of Israel and the land of Israel.

Where I Belong

Curt Here,

With all that is going on in the world it is clear that things are just not right, and everyday the evidence mounts that we are getting closer to the season of His return.  With this realization, I have a mixture of feelings from excitement to sadness.  Excitement, because our redemption draws near and sadness for the mess this world has become and for those whom seem to be hopelessly lost.  We must continue the work of Christ while there is still light.

I have also come to the realization that this world is not my home and I long to be where I belong, with Christ my Savior.  I recently came across a song that really struck a cord with me.  I encourage you to listen and lift your head up as He is coming soon.


Feeling like a refugee
Like it don't belong to me
The colors flash across the sky

This air feels strange to me
Feeling like a tragedy
Take a deep breath and close my eyes
One last time

Storms on the wasteland
Dark clouds on the plains again
We were born into the fight

But I'm not sentimental
This skin and bones is a rental
And no one makes it out alive

Until I die I'll sing these songs
On the shores of Babylon
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong

Where the weak are finally strong
Where the righteous right the wrongs
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong

Feels like we're just waiting, waiting
While our hearts are just breaking, breaking
Feels like we're fighting against the tide

I wanna see the earth shaking
I wanna see a generation
Finally waking up inside

Until I die I'll sing these songs
On the shores of Babylon
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong

Where the weak are finally strong
Where the righteous right the wrongs
Still looking for a home
In a world where I belong

In a world where I belong

This body's not my own
This world is not my own
But I can still hear the sound
Of my heart beating out
So let's go boys, play it loud

On the final day I die
I want to hold my head up high
I want to tell you that I tried
To live it like a song

And when I reach the other side
I want to look you in the eye
And know that I've arrived
In a world where I belong

Where I belong

I still believe we can live forever
You and I we begin forever now
Forever now
I still believe in us together
You and I we're here together now
Together now
Together now
Forever now
Forever now

What if America is the end times Babylon the Great?

The following is a summation using scriptural references listed below:  America & Babylon can be substituted for one another at any time in this Summary...

America is the most powerful nation in the world, the youngest and greatest Queen amongst all nations.  She is a lady of stature and the praise of the whole earth.  She is the richest nation in the world: All nations grow rich from her world trade system.  She is a huge nation with lands, cities, and great wealth timbered with buildings; a land of open fields quartered by mighty rivers measured out and populated through and throughout.  She is also polluted and a waste.  The nation is filled with warm water sea-ports, a coastal nation that sits upon many waters.  She is a nation filled with mingled people, diversity.  She is a singular nation founded upon out of the many, one.  She has a mother nation that remains in existence from its birth to its death.  The mother of America has the symbol of the lion.  The mother of America will rule over her daughter her entire life.  The mother of America will be in a state of major decline as the end nears.  America is called a lion’s whelp.  She has the symbol of the eagle with diverse colors, and builds her nest among the stars.  She is a treaty power and is an end-time great nation.  She was and is instrumental in the setting up of Israel and protecting in the Middle East, and is home of God’s people.  She is the center of a one world religious movement.

America’s merchants are considered great men of the earth.  They trade with all who have ships in the sea, year round.  America is rich in minerals: Her imports/exports are of the many resources, agriculture, cattle, sheep, horses and other livestock as well as spices.  She has fine flour & mill operations equipped with granaries and warehouses, farmers and harvesters of huge crops.  She is also the most industrial nation of the world.  Skilled craftsman produce the automobile, jewelry, gold, silver, marble, iron, and steel.  They have established corporations throughout the world.  She also leads in musicians & entertainment around the world. 

America is the hammer of the whole earth.  She has a huge space industry, equipped with aircraft and a highly sought after aviation program.  Her skies are filled with the sound of aircraft.  Military might, high-tech weapons and abilities.  She is a military arsenal and war machine.  Her military power rules the world; however she is a virgin nation as she has not been touched by war on her lands. 

Her people have the highest standard of living in the world.  They think they are God’s elect and eternal.  They are a nation that dwells carelessly before the Lord lounging in their security.  They will be a people who will not know their true identity “Mystery Babylon”.  They are a missionary nation for Jesus Christ, and home to multitudes of Jews who eventually leave.  The Christian leaders are considered strangers in the house of the Lord, and they lead the flock astray in prophecy and salvation.  The people of America fall into the deepest, darkest sins of all kinds.  They will be deeply involved in the occult and spiritualism as well as drugs.  America becomes the home of all antichrist religions in the world and becomes a nation of religious confusion.  They are a people consumed by their idols.  America’s people are proud and haughty and will not consider her end. 

America has higher education and learning, they are a great voice in world affairs.  Their world government is established throughout the world.  She is a democracy that is ruled by many counsels.  She is bogged down with deliberations, and cannot govern herself properly.  Her leaders use astrology, seers, and mystics for guidance.  America’s government system eventually breaks down.  She was born a Christian nation, but also labored in the occult from her inception.  She turns against her heritage, and destroys herself. 

America will have a major enemy to her north her enemy will lie on the opposite side of the world, over the poles.  The enemy will be a federation of nations.  Her enemy will be largely Muslim in make-up and will have inter-continental nuclear missile capabilities.  The enemy will be noted for its cruelty and will also have a huge aviation military machine.  The enemy will come into America un-noticed, and will fill her.  They will be brought in under the guise of peace.  In the end America’s borders will be cut off, leaving no way for escape.  Babylon will be destroyed by nuclear holocaust (Fire).

America falls to the occult, just before her end.  She turns upon her own people imprisoning and killing them by the millions.  She will turn totally antichrist at the end.  The king of Babylon is called Lucifer, the Antichrist.  The King will rule from the great city called Babylon.

(Jer. 50-51, Isa. 47, Rev. 17-19, Isa. 18, Isa. 13-14, Hab. 1-2, Dan. 7, Eze. 38, Psa. 17, Rev. 13, Dan. 11, Psa. 83, Eze. 17, Oba. 1, Psa. 64, Zech. 5).

The End Game

Curt Here...

I have posted within this post a presentation, that explains very quickly our current global financial situation.  The presenter then tries to explain what that means to our current system.  Thanks to Jackie for sending this to me and to the many others who are talking about this presentation.  I have no idea if the dire prediction detailed below will turn out to be true, but it is obvious that the global financial world is sick, very sick.  The EU is clearly farther along in this process and in my humble opinion will be the first to have major financial problems.  Can this present financial existence and reality continue on forever?  The scriptures clearly says no.  Are we near the "reset" as the presenter suggests below?  I don't know the answer to this, but we should be paying very close attention over the next several months.

My final questions that I believe we must ask ourselves are, is the fatal head wound that the beast receives in Revelation 13 financial?  Are we getting close to this prophecy being fulfilled?  Here is the scripture for your reference.

Revelation 13:3-4
3 I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast;
4 they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?"

Keep in mind that once the fatal wound is healed the Anti-Christ rises to power, begins his 42 month reign and the mark of the beast is implemented.  More scripture for your reference.

Revelation 13:5-9
5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven.
7 It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.
8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain.
9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.

Revelation 13:16-18
16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead,
17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. 

It would seem to me, that the healing of this fatal head wound allows the rise of the Anti-Christ and for the mark of the beast to be implemented soon after, which you must have to buy or sell.  So the idea of the fatal head wound being financially related seems to have some merit.  I would argue a lot of merit.

Here is the presentation, it is very short and easy to understand.  I don't post this to scare you, but to try and inform you.  Please consider and pray about the contents.

Nigel Farage - There Will Be an Attempt to Install a Dictatorship

Curt Here...

Nigel Farage is a current Member of the European Parliament (MEP) and represents the UK.  Today he gave an astounding interview that reaffirms what many have been saying lately about the current financial and political chaos that is griping the EU.  Here are a couple of quotes from the interview...

“Frankly, the whole thing is falling apart.  And in the middle of all of this, Mrs Merkel came out and said, ‘The fiscal treaty cannot be renegotiated, and it must hold.’  So, I suppose, for once, we’ve got the Germans providing the humor, because this thing isn’t going to hold.”

“I now believe the euro and the whole euro system are now in, by far, the deepest crisis that we’ve seen.  We are in totally uncharted, chaotic territory.  In some ways the ball is very much on the German side of the court.  If they are unable to impose the discipline they thought this new Compact Treaty would give them, then maybe it’s the Germans that say, ‘Right, Greece you’ve got to leave.’  We know once Greece leaves, the domino's start to fall.

What these guys in the EU are going to try to do is, as this crisis gets worse and descends, there will be an attempt at some point in the next few months for them to set up something that will be very like a dictatorship.  I’m not sure now, with the public mood, that they will get away with it ... the similarities (to the 30s) are really rather chilling.”

To read the rest of the article go here.  To hear the entire interview, which I would definitely recommend go here.

Things are getting very interesting, so please stay tuned.

Supreme Chancellor

Out of the Ashes Rises the Phoenix, the Little Horn and the answer to the Euro-zone and the rest of the World…

Senior Eurocrats are secretly plotting to create a super-powerful EU president to realize their dream of abolishing Britain, we can reveal. (
A covert group of EU foreign ministers has drawn up plans for merging the jobs currently done by Herman Van Rompuy, president of the European Council, and Jose Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission.
The new bureaucrat, who would not be directly elected by voters, is set to get sweeping control over the entire EU and force member countries into ever-greater political and economic union. 

Read more here:

Daniel 7:8 (KJV)

I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.


Daniel 11:23 (KJV)

And after the league made with him he shall work deceitfully: for he shall come up, and shall become strong with a small people.


This is just a thought… but what if the three to be subdued are the following:


Jos̩ Manuel Barroso РPortugal

Herman Van Rompuy – Belgium

Catherine Ashton - UK

These 3 are apart of the 10…

22 Red Flags

If you enjoy watching financial doom, then you are quite likely to really enjoy the rest of 2012.  Right now, red flags are popping up all over the place.  Corporate insiders are selling off stock like there is no tomorrow, major economies all over Europe continue to implode, the IMF is warning that the Euro-Zone could actually break up and there are signs of trouble at major banks all over the planet.  Unfortunately, it looks like the period of relative stability that global financial markets have been enjoying is about to come to an end.  A whole host of problems that have been festering just below the surface are starting to manifest, and we are beginning to see the ingredients for a "perfect storm" start to come together.  The greatest global debt bubble in human history is showing signs that it is getting ready to burst, and when that happens the consequences are going to be absolutely horrific.  Hopefully we still have at least a little bit more time before the global financial system implodes, but at this point it doesn't look like anything is going to be able to stop the chaos that is on the horizon.

I hate to say it…  But couple this with an article where the Government is buying up Hollow Point Bullets, Hardened Checkpoint Booths, and Radiation Pills, and it looks like the Governments are preparing for chaos as well.

Please do what you can to store a few items for yourself and your family…  Don’t be caught up in the panic when everyone will rush to the stores to buy up the inventory.  God can use what ever you store up… 

In John 6:9 Andrew finds a boy who had come prepared to hear Jesus speak, the boy had five small barley loaves and two small fish.  God multiplied the food to feed five thousand people that day with a tuna fish sandwich.

Is the False Prophet the Antichrist?

I’m going to repost this… One of the Members over at Unsealed Prophecy brought up this question, and then was able to find an answer by Britt Gillette.

Thank-you Mr. Baldy

Is the False Prophet the Antichrist?

by Britt Gillette

In the nearly 2,000 years since the Book of Revelation was written, many have perceived the false prophet of Revelation 13 to be an ally of the Antichrist rather than the Antichrist himself. But is this the correct biblical view? Let’s study what the bible says:

The Two Beasts of Revelation 13

Revelation 13 identifies two beasts who will emerge in the last days during the period known as the tribulation. The first of these beasts appears at the beginning of Chapter 13:

“And now in my vision I saw a beast rising up out of the sea. It had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns. And written on each head were names that blasphemed God. This beast looked like a leopard, but it had bear’s feet and a lion’s mouth! And the dragon gave him his own power and throne and great authority.” Revelation 13:1-2 (NLT)

This beast (described in verses 1-8) is traditionally viewed as representing the Antichrist, while the second beast (described in verses 11-18) is traditionally viewed as representing the “false prophet,” a man distinct from the Antichrist who assists in forcing the world to worship the Antichrist:

“Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth. He had two horns like those of a lamb, and he spoke with the voice of a dragon.” Revelation 13:11 (NLT)

However, neither of these views is compatible with what the bible really teaches. According to the bible, the false prophet is the Antichrist, and he doesn’t need a sinister sidekick to carry out his evil plans.

Why the First Beast is the Revived Roman Empire

Much confusion arises from the fact that although the first beast is the Antichrist’s empire, many of its attributes can be used to describe the Antichrist himself. Biblically speaking, this is not a unique concept. This also occurs in the Book of Daniel, when Daniel tells Nebuchadnezzar he is the head of gold, even though the head of gold is clearly stated as representing the kingdom of Babylon:

“Your Majesty, you are a king over many kings. The God of heaven has given you sovereignty, power, strength, and honor. He has made you the ruler over all the inhabited world and has put even the animals and birds under your control. You are the head of gold.” Daniel 2:37-38 (NLT)

In much the same way, the beast of Revelation 13:1 should be viewed as the kingdom of the Antichrist. However, since the Antichrist is the ultimate ruler of this empire, it will take on many characteristics traditionally associated with his personality.

The Revived Roman Empire

The Bible reveals that in the last days, the world will be ruled by a global government. This will be the first truly global government since the fall of Adam and Eve, and it will be responsible for a terrible amount of destruction and murder before being destroyed by the glorious appearing of Jesus Christ who “will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed” Daniel 2:44 (NLT).

In Chapter 2 of the Book of Daniel, the prophet Daniel (with the guidance of God Himself) properly interprets the dream of the Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar. The king dreamed of a beautiful statue of a man with a head of gold, a chest and arms of silver, a belly and thighs of bronze, legs of iron, and feet made from a combination of iron and clay. The statue was crushed by a rock cut from a mountain by supernatural means, and the rock became a great mountain that covered the whole earth.

Daniel explains that the statue is a series of kingdoms, beginning with Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonia:

“You are the head of gold. But after your kingdom comes to an end, another great kingdom, inferior to yours, will rise to take your place. After that kingdom has fallen, yet a third great kingdom, represented by the bronze belly and thighs, will rise to rule the world. Following that kingdom, there will be a fourth great kingdom, as strong as iron. That kingdom will smash and crush all previous empires, just as iron smashes and crushes everything it strikes. The feet and toes you saw that were a combination of iron and clay show that this kingdom will be divided. Some parts of it will be as strong as iron, and others as weak as clay. This mixture of iron and clay also shows that these kingdoms will try to strengthen themselves by forming alliances with each other through intermarriage. But this will not succeed, just as iron and clay do not mix.” Daniel 2:38-43 (NLT)

In the course of human events since Daniel first interpreted Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, all but one of these human kingdoms (the last) has appeared and disappeared just as predicted. In order, they are:

1) Babylonia
2) Medo-Persia
3) Greece
4) Rome
5) The Revived Roman Empire

Attributes of the Last World Empire

This last empire, symbolized by the feet and toes of iron and clay, will one day constitute the first dictatorship that is truly global in nature. This revived Roman Empire will rule the world in the following ways:

1) Politically
“And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation.” Revelation 13:7 (NLT)

2) Religiously
“And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast.” Revelation 13:8 (NLT)

“They worshiped the dragon for giving the beast such power, and they worshiped the beast.” Revelation 13:4 (NLT)


3) Economically
“He required everyone – great and small, rich and poor, slave and free – to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.” Revelation 13:16-17 (NLT)

Every facet of the human experience will be utterly dominated by this global government.

The Ten Kings

“And now in my vision I saw a beast rising up out of the sea. It had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns.” Revelation 13:1 (NLT)

In its second incarnation, the Roman Empire will be ruled by ten kings. Another king will arise from among them. They will grant their authority to him, but he will soon turn on three of these kings, acquiring permanent control over the empire. This passage also underscores how God views the world versus how humans view the world. These same kingdoms as dreamed of by Nebuchadnezzar represented a beautiful statue; As viewed by God they represent horrible beasts.

We learn more about the characteristics of the coming world government in the Book of Revelation, where an angel reveals to the apostle John the true meaning of his vision of a woman sitting on a scarlet beast with 7 heads and 10 horns:

“And now understand this: The seven heads of the beast represent seven hills of the city where this woman rules. They also represent seven kings. Five kings have already fallen, the sixth now reigns, and the seventh is yet to come, but his reign will be brief. The scarlet beast that was alive and then died is the eighth king. He is like the other seven, and he, too, will go to his doom. His ten horns are ten kings who have not yet risen to power; they will be appointed to their kingdoms for one brief moment to reign with the beast. They will all agree to give their power and authority to him.” Revelation 17:9-13 (NLT)

Throughout history “seven hills” has often been erroneously interpreted as a reference to Rome, the city of seven hills. However, the original Greek is literally interpreted as “seven mountains.” From Daniel 2:35, we know that a mountain can represent a kingdom, and given the context of the verses, it is proper to interpret these seven mountains as seven kingdoms. The seven heads of the beast represent seven world empires, five of which were referenced earlier by the prophet Daniel. They are, in order of their rule, the following:

1) Egypt
2) Assyria
3) Babylonia
4) Medo-Persia
5) Greece
6) Rome
7) The Revived Roman Empire

As the passage explains, the 10 horns represent 10 kings who, as we learned earlier from Daniel, will grant their power and authority to this final kingdom – the revived Roman Empire. Daniel concurs with the vision of the 10 kings, the appearance of an eleventh king, and the defeat of 3 of the 10 kings:

“Then in my vision that night, I saw a fourth beast, terrifying, dreadful, and very strong. It devoured and crushed its victims with huge iron teeth and trampled what was left beneath its feet. It was different from any of the other beasts, and it had ten horns. As I was looking at the horns, suddenly another small horn appeared among them. Three of the first horns were wrenched out, roots and all, to make room for it. This little horn had eyes like human eyes and a mouth that was boasting arrogantly.” Daniel 7:7-8 (NLT)

Ten kings will give their power and national sovereignty to the revived Roman Empire. From among them, the Antichrist will appear, and he will become the preeminent ruler among them.

Furthermore, we learn earlier in the Book of Revelation that the final world empire will be the seventh successive world empire and will be formed by 10 kings:

“And now in my vision I saw a beast rising up out of the sea. It had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns. And written on each head were names that blasphemed God.” Revelation 13:1 (NLT)

The Resurrection of One of the Heads of the Beast

We also learn from the Book of Revelation that the seventh head of the beast will seem wounded beyond recovery, but the wound will be healed. The following verses reference this recovery:

“I saw that one of the heads of the beast seemed wounded beyond recovery – but the fatal wound was healed! All the world marveled at this miracle and followed the beast in awe.” Revelation 13:3 (NLT)

“He exercised all the authority of the first beast. And he required all the earth and those who belong in this world to worship the first beast, whose death-wound had been healed.” Revelation 13:12 (NLT)

“He ordered the people of the world to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life.” Revelation 13:14 (NLT)

Many commentators have applied this attribute to the human head of this global government, the Antichrist. They believe the Antichrist will be resurrected in a satanic attempt to counterfeit the resurrection of Jesus Christ. However, this is a misinterpretation of scripture. The wounded head is the kingdom of the Antichrist, not the person himself.

Although the word “beast” is used to describe the person of the Antichrist, it’s also used in Daniel 7 and Revelation 13 to describe his kingdom as well as previous world empires. Heads are symbols of kingdoms, while horns are symbols of kings. Therefore, a wounded head represents a wounded kingdom, not a wounded king. The wounded beast described in these verses is the world empire of ancient Rome, which was never completely destroyed like its predecessors. In the last days, the Roman Empire will appear once again, and the world will marvel at its appearance. The following verse reiterates this concept:

“Five kings have already fallen, the sixth now reigns, and the seventh is yet to come, but his reign will be brief.” Revelation 17:10 (NLT)

The angel reveals to John that 5 of the kingdoms have fallen:

1) Egypt
2) Assyria
3) Babylonia
4) Medo-Persia
5) Greece

The sixth kingdom “now reigns”:

6) Rome (John’s vision occurred in the 1st Century, when Rome still ruled the known world)

And the seventh “is yet to come”:

7) The Revived Roman Empire

In the last days, this resurrected Roman Empire will rule all of humanity. Its reign will be brief, but it will be like no other kingdom before it. It will play the role of beast in a satanic trinity of Satan, Antichrist, and Beast.

The Book of Daniel

Further insight into the identity of the beast in Revelation 13:1 is provided to Daniel following his vision of four beasts:

“I, Daniel, was troubled by all I had seen, and my visions terrified me. So I approached one of those standing beside the throne and asked him what it all meant. He explained it to me like this: “These four huge beasts represent four kingdoms that will arise from the earth.” Daniel 7:15-17 (NLT)

In this verse, a heavenly being explains to Daniel that the beasts in his vision represent kingdoms or world empires. These are the same empires foreseen in Nebuchadnezzar’s dream, with the fourth empire representing Rome:

“Then I wanted to know the true meaning of the fourth beast, the one so different from the others and so terrifying. It devoured and crushed its victims with iron teeth and bronze claws, and it trampled what was left beneath its feet. I also asked about the ten horns on the fourth beast’s head and the little horn that came up afterward and destroyed three of the other horns. This was the horn that seemed greater than the others and had human eyes and mouth that was boasting arrogantly.” Daniel 7:19-20 (NLT)

Notice the distinct similarities between this beast and the beast of Revelation 13:1. Both crush everything in their path, and both have ten horns. The similarities continue:

“Then he said to me, ‘This fourth beast is the fourth world power that will rule the earth. It will be different from all the others. It will devour the whole world, trampling everything in its path. Its ten horns are ten kings that will rule that empire.” Daniel 7:23-24 (NLT)

In this verse, it’s clearly stated that the beast in Daniel’s vision is a world empire that will rule the earth. It will be different in that it will devour the whole world, providing it with dominion over “every tribe and people and language and nation” Revelation 13:7 (NLT). It will also have ten horns that are ten kings, just as the beast of Revelation 13:1 has “ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns.”

From these kings, another king will rise, and He will cause a shocking amount of destruction. This king is the Antichrist, and he will rise out of the revived Roman Empire:

“Then another king will arise, different from the other ten, who will subdue three of them. He will defy the Most High and wear down the holy people of the Most High.’” Daniel 7:24-25 (NLT)

Why the Second Beast is the Antichrist

In addition to the similarities between the Book of Daniel’s description of the revived Roman Empire and the beast of Revelation 13:1, a number of notable similarities exist between the second beast of Revelation 13 and other biblical descriptions of the Antichrist.
He Speaks with the Voice of a Dragon
Knowing that the Antichrist is the human embodiment of Satan, the bible gives us a clear identification of the second beast:

“Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth. He had two horns like those of a lamb, and he spoke with the voice of a dragon.” Revelation 13:11 (NLT)

It’s not by mere coincidence that this beast speaks with the voice of a dragon. The same dragon appears in Chapter 12, and there is no mistaking his identity:

“This great dragon – the ancient serpent called the Devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world – was thrown down to the earth with all his angels.” Revelation 12:9 (NLT)

Following a great war in heaven, Satan is thrown to the earth in defeat where he knows that he has little time before Christ returns to establish his Millennial Kingdom. This event occurs at the mid-point of the tribulation:

“Rejoice, O heavens! And you who live in the heavens, rejoice! But terror will come on the earth and the sea. For the Devil has come down to you in great anger, and he knows that he has little time.” Revelation 12:12 (NLT)

The mid-point of the tribulation, when Satan comes to reside on earth, is also when the Antichrist commits the “abomination of desolation” spoken of by Jesus and the prophet Daniel.

Astounding Miracles

The second beast of Revelation 13 is also described as performing astounding miracles, so as to deceive the people of this world:

“He did astounding miracles, such as making fire flash down to earth from heaven while everyone was watching. And with all the miracles he was allowed to perform on behalf of the first beast, he deceived all the people who belong to this world.” Revelation 13:13-14 (NLT)

Paul clearly identifies this same beast as a man, the Antichrist, who he describes in his letter to the Thessalonians:

“This evil man will come to do the work of Satan with counterfeit power and signs and miracles. He will use every kind of wicked deception to fool those who are on their way to destruction because they refuse to believe the truth that would save them.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10 (NLT)

He Exercises All Authority

Throughout the scriptures, the Antichrist is described as a man of unprecedented power, who answers to no one. If the false prophet is merely an associate of the Antichrist, then how could he “exercise all the authority” of the Antichrist without being at least the equal of the Antichrist himself? He doesn’t, because the false prophet is the Antichrist.

The Antichrist exercises all the authority of the revived Roman empire, which is the seat of global authority:

“He exercised all the authority of the first beast. And he required all the earth and those who belong to this world to worship the first beast, whose death-wound had been healed.” Revelation 13:12 (NLT)

The Antichrist will exercise all the authority of the first beast, which is the revived Roman Empire. He will require the world to worship and give allegiance to this empire, which will be resurrected from the dustbin of history (thus, healing its deadly wound).

Immense Power

The Antichrist will be consumed with power, and power alone will be his object of worship:

“He will have no regard for the god of his ancestors, or for the god beloved of women, or for any other god, for he will boast that he is greater than them all. Instead of these, he will worship the god of fortresses – a god his ancestors never knew – and lavish on him gold, silver, precious stones, and costly gifts.” Daniel 11:37-38 (NLT)

The Antichrist’s god is a god of fortresses, and fortresses are the exclusive domain of kingdoms and empires. The Antichrist will wield immense power, a power unknown to previous generations, and this power will make his kingdom invincible to human enemies:

“They worshiped the dragon for giving the beast such power, and they worshiped the beast. ‘Is there anyone as great as the beast?’ they exclaimed. ‘Who is able to fight against him?’” Revelation 13:4 (NLT)

The Antichrist will only acknowledge one power, a military power he possesses. His power will be so great, the people of the world will marvel in wonder and worship it, asking the rhetorical question of who among them is able to fight against his mighty kingdom.

The Lake of Fire

Yet another way to distinguish the Antichrist from his kingdom is by studying their final destination. The lake of fire is a punishment reserved for the beast and his false prophet:

“Both the beast and his false prophet were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulfur.” Revelation 19:20 (NLT)

However, the book of Daniel clearly reveals that the beast is a kingdom, not a man:

“I kept watching until the fourth beast was killed and its body was destroyed by fire.” Daniel 7:11 (NLT)

This is the same beast described in Daniel 7 and identified by Jesus Christ as a fourth world empire, and the reign of this oppressive government will be put to an end by the King of Kings Himself. When Christ returns to earth, He will destroy this kingdom as well as the Antichrist, throwing both into the lake of fire where they will experience everlasting torment.


It’s easy to see how the beast of Revelation 13:1 can be confused with the person of the Antichrist. As the Antichrist’s kingdom and primary vehicle for world domination, it shares a number of common attributes with the man of perdition. However, this has also led to confusion over the identity of the beast described in Revelation 13:11. Traditionally, this false prophet has been viewed as a contemporary and an ally of the Antichrist, rather than the Antichrist himself. However, a careful examination of the scriptures uncovers an undeniable similarity between the career of the false prophet and the career of the Antichrist.

For the tribulation saints, a firm understanding of the distinction between these two beasts is of paramount importance. It will aid them in the proper identification of the Antichrist, as well as provide them with an invaluable tool for evangelism as they point out the similarities between the events of Revelation 13 and the events of their time. As such, we should do everything in our power to insure that their interpretation of the Word of God is based solely on truth and not on doctrines invented by man.

God is calling... Please pray....

I believe God is trying to get our attention as the war drums beat in the Middle East. The alarm needs to be heard through out God’s people. I was reading through Haggai the other night: I discovered something interesting. It was a call to build the house of the Lord. This is what the Lord Almighty says: “These people say, “The time has not yet come to rebuild the Lord’s House.”” Do you think it is a time for you yourselves to be living in your paneled houses, while the Lord’s house remains in ruin?

Haggai 1

5 Now this is what the LORD Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. 6 You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.”

This, sounds like life today… A chasing after the wind… And an endless toil…

You can read the book of Ecclesiastes for this….

Haggai 2

15 “‘Now give careful thought to this from this day on consider how things were before one stone was laid on another in the LORD’s temple. 16 When anyone came to a heap of twenty measures, there were only ten. When anyone went to a wine vat to draw fifty measures, there were only twenty. 17 I struck all the work of your hands with blight, mildew and hail, yet you did not return to me,’ declares the LORD.

God is attempting to get our attention… We see Floods, Droughts, Famine, Fires, Volcano’s, Earth Quakes, Cyclone’s, etc… All around us there is hardship: the Economies are failing… Do you think that God is trying to get our attention? I think he wants us to turn to Him… He needs us to be the Prayer Warriors…

Ephesians 6:10-17

We need to make sure we are wearing the armor of God at all times…

Think about armor for a second… What do we know about it? Armor is heavy, cumbersome, can be awkward at first not being easy to move around in, it’s not comfortable to wear, however it protects you. Warriors trained all the time with their full armor on. It built strength, taught them how to be agile in it, and how to use it affectively in battle. Warriors relied upon it to keep them safe, and as a defense from their attacker.

In the same way, we need to train and live in the armor of God at all times. How else can we take a stand against the devil’s schemes? Use God’s word to charge your spirit, and to give you strength. But here is a key in using the armor… vs. 18 of Ephesians 6 – Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests, with this in mind be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Why? Because God wants to be involved, he wants us to turn to him, he wants to be used by us, and in turn God will use you in a way that will impact many...

(I'm trying to keep these shorter... There could be a lot more said on this as you can imagine, and maybe that is where it needs to be left... It is up to you to fill in the blanks with what God would have you to do...)

Continue to prepare yourselves spiritually. Make the most of the opportunities given to you by God. This will be a year of great turmoil and crisis. I believe you will see more volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, economic turmoil and war. Everyone will be looking at 12/21/2012 the end of the Mayan calendar. It will be on the hearts of everyone that doom and gloom is coming, and possibly the end of the world as we know it. Luke 21:26 says that people will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. Luke 21:34-35 warns us to be careful, or our hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. It will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth.

David Wilkerson in a message on the knowledge of the ways of God stated: that we the ordinary Christian will need to be the calm ones when everything else around us is falling apart. We need to be in prayer and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, so that the peace of God which transcends all understanding will guard our hearts and minds, and we will be at peace and not appear to be going crazy.

We need to be ready to give an answer to the hope that is inside of us to those who are searching. Let us be witnesses to those around us through speech and actions.


Luke 21

9 When you hear of wars and uprisings, do not be frightened. These things must happen first, but the end will not come right away.”

10 Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.

12 “But before all this, they will seize you and persecute you. They will hand you over to synagogues and put you in prison, and you will be brought before kings and governors, and all on account of my name. 13 And so you will bear testimony to me. 14 But make up your mind not to worry beforehand how you will defend yourselves. 15 For I will give you words and wisdom that none of your adversaries will be able to resist or contradict. 16 You will be betrayed even by parents, brothers and sisters, relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death. 17 Everyone will hate you because of me. 18 But not a hair of your head will perish. 19 Stand firm, and you will win life.

20 “When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. 22 For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. 23 How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people. 24 They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

29 He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees. 30 When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near. 31 Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.

32 “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

34 “Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. 35 For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. 36 Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
