THE BEAST OF DAN. 7 AND REV. 13 GOVERNS DURING OUR TIME
As seen in Part 1 of this series, masonic orders are behind the devastating course, which history follows in this world. God allows them to do that because, until Jesus returns on the clouds, the “whole world [will remain] under the sway, [deception and power] of the evil one,” (1 Jn. 5:19.) However, it is not God’s will that His truly born again children should come, or remain under his ‘sway.’ Thus, God prophesied all the end-time events in Scripture to warn us of what was, and is to come. This is why Daniel saw (Dan. 7) four beasts that “came up from the [great, stormy] sea. First, a beast that [looked like] a lion... Then, one LIKE a bear… Another was LIKE a leopard… And then, “a fourth most terrible beast, different from all the others.” In Rev. 13:1-10, John described his end-time vision as “a [single] beast rising up out of the sea. It had 7 heads and 10 horns, and on his horns, 10 crowns; [it is ruled by ten nations, most important governmental structures, and financiers, which oversee certain regions of the globe,] and on his head is a blasphemous name…”
Most Eschatologists and End-time Teachers Pull Believers into the Kingdom-Now Theology
God said of Daniel’s prophecies, “The vision of the evening, [Daniel was sleeping when he received the first vision of chapter 7] and morning, [apparently, God gave Him the second vision in the morning, two years later,] which was told is true. Therefore, seal up the vision, for it refers to many days in the future… Understand, son of man, that the vision refers to the time of the end...” “I am making known to you what shall happen in the latter time…” (Dan. Chapters 7 & 8; 8:19, 23, 26.)
Yet, Dispensationalists name these four beasts in Daniel and John’s visions as the physical, ancient kingdoms of Babylonia, Persia, Greece, and the Roman Empire – all long gone. Thus, these kingdoms cannot influence the end of the end-times at all! Others name these beasts as four physical ‘kings:’ Nebuchadnezzar, Nero, Napoleon, and Hitler – forgetting the dwarfing mayhem of the multi-million mass-murderer Stalin and all his Asian, African, etc. communist comrades. Dispensationalists also say one of these antichrist men should fall away, because a ‘physical one-man antichrist’ will supposedly “rule the world for three to seven year’ during ‘the great tribulation just before the rapture!”
So, let’s see what these visions really mean in Scriptural context and the recent course of history.
The vision of the fourth beast upset Daniel the most, and God said to him in Dan. 7:23-27, “The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms. It shall devour the whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces… It’s ten horns are ten kings, who shall arise from this [fourth] kingdom and another shall arise after them. He [it] shall speak pompous words against the Most High and persecute the saints... [This God-hating religious nation or institution] shall intend to change times and [all the precepts of God’s Moral] law…”
Note that this 4th kingdom will destroy the whole earth and ten rulers (or ten ‘supreme’ nations) will govern it, with one prominent antichrist nation that ultimately govern them all. This has never happened in all of history. There was never a single dictator or nation, which could rule the whole world. So, we know for certain that this is an end of the end-time prophecy?
The Bible tells us that the antichrist spirit inhabits all people who reject Jesus as the Christ, Redeemer, and Blessor of the whole world, no matter how religious they are, (1 Jn. 5:19.) However, the global destruction of the “fourth kingdom” and its controlling leaders, one in particular, point to a time directly before the return of Jesus. In fact, Jesus own prophesies in Matthew Chapter 24:1-31 and Luke chapter 21:7-28 also confirms everything that has been happening in our world prior to, and since the dawn of the 20th century, as the fulfillment of Daniel and John’s visions. Until now, attempts to decode the real historical ‘timeline’ in Daniel and John’s prophecies according to the history of physical Israel have proved futile in the light of recent global history (the last 300 years,) and the truly contextual Word of God. National or Israeli, (not international) “Kingdom-Now” interpretations only succeeded in steering believers away from Biblical truth and the true, spiritual Kingdom of God, which “resides within the hearts” of all His sincere disciples of Christ; the only real Kingdom of God and temple of the Holy Spirit, (1 Cor. 3:16-17; 6:18.)
A Multilevel Fulfillment for the “Whole Earth” and for “The [last] Time at the End”
If Dispensationalists’ physical, four-men-antichrist interpretations were true, Daniel and John’s visions have little or nothing to do with each other, or with the end of the world, as God said.
It might be confusing to interpret these visions if one does not see a multilevel fulfillment of Biblical prophecy: spiritual, emotional, financial, physical, and international. Recent history proved that this is a multilevel timeline, which manifested itself during the past three centuries at least, not just during the ‘last three or seven years’ on earth as dispensationalists allege.
Daniel saw these four beasts come up out of the sea one by one; John saw them amalgamated into one terrible beast. History has proven that these four beasts work globally as one, but only one beast operated at a time, while clandestinely representing all four different beasts. These beasts have never, and will never be separated here on earth.
The dual prophecy of Daniel and Jon warns that this destructive beast will adversely affect the lives of all those living in the end of New Testament times - especially the truly born again believers of Christ, whom God bought with the blood of Jesus form all nations, (Rev. 7:9.) John confirmed this, saying, “It was granted to him to make war with the [New Testament] saints [not with the ‘Jews’ according to the ‘Israeli timeline,’] and to overcome them…” (Rev. 13:7-8.) If the physical war for the physical land of Israel is on another level of this beast, which it could also be, it is certainly not as Kingdom-Now preachers pervert Jesus’ New Testament Covenant of Grace to ‘automatically’ save the nation of Israel as a whole without personal faith in Christ, and believers who think they can be of Jewish descent by calling Jesus “by His Hebrew Names.” Messianic Judaism is another deception of Charismatic dispensationalists.
WHAT THE BEAST IN DANIEL AND JOHN’S VISIONS REALLY LOOKS LIKE
“[This spirit which John saw, (Rev. 13,)] was like a leopard; [it has the stealthy, secretive character of a leopard, and in essence, represents the global, governing philosophy of the end-time: humanism,] with feet like those of a bear, [it is ‘carried’ or disseminated by the political dogmas of the ravishing bear: socialism-communism.] Its mouth was like the mouth of a lion, [the world-unifying English language, which also represents the enslaving, global imperialism of Britain and her European counterparts.] “And the [the fourth beast, the] dragon gave the leopard-like beast his power, throne, and great authority…”
The stormy ‘great sea’ from which this beast came, (Rev. 13 and Dan. 7,) is the symbol of the global political world. ‘The beast and the dragon’ refer to the entities that control the world’s political governments, both those who openly declare a god and those who do not, (1 Jn. 5:19.)
Furthermore, throughout the ages, politics and religion have always been in union. It is important to remember that in Rev. 13, John also saw a second beast that came up out of the earth. The beast from the earth is the counterpart of the political beast from the sea. The beast of the earth came up from all forms of religion, Christianity too. Together, these two beasts rule planet earth on all levels of life — except in the sphere of Almighty God, the Lord Jesus Christ.
John’s vision was not new. God gave a similar vision to Daniel in the late 6th century B.C. The Book of Daniel Chapter 7 describes four different beasts. Daniel saw them emerging one by one from the sea.
First, in Dan. 7:4, a winged, lion-like spirit-beast appeared. Suddenly, its “wings were plucked off. Then, IT WAS LIFTED UP FROM THE EARTH and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.” In the light of modern history, this wasn’t “one man,” but the formation or embodiment of a significant political structure, ruled by this particular spirit.
Second, in Dan. 7:5, a devouring bear-like beast appeared, “RAISED UP ON ONE SIDE with THREE RIBS between its teeth, and they [the other beasts] said to it, ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’”
Third, Dan. 7:6, a leopard-like beast with four heads and four wings of a bird came from the [stormy, worldwide political] sea, and “DOMINION WAS GIVEN TO IT.”
The fourth, in Dan. 7:7, was the most terrible, which John, in Revelation, calls “the dragon, which empowers [economically, militarily etc.] the leopard-like beast.” Daniel saw it was “dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong with huge iron teeth. It was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that it had ten horns and another little horn came up amongst them while three others were plucked out…. [It…] [Dan. 7:8,] made war against the saints and prevailed against them until the Ancient of Days came… The court was seated and the books were opened… And One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven!”
As proved by the bloody, tremulous events of ‘recent’ history, the Four Beasts are four World-structuring, World-Governing spirits, implementing philosophies or political dogmas, which are embodied by physical government in control of the whole world.
Coupled with Daniel’s second vision of the Ram and the Goat in Daniel Chapter 8, (discussed later on,) Daniel’s vision of the four spirit-beasts has been systematically materializing during the last 300 years and culminating now in the form of John’s vision of the leopard-like beast. The spirit that John saw is an amalgamation of all four beasts, ruling planet earth at the same time through physical governments!
