Rev 13:1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.
Divine Commentary –
“Then John saw he was part of,
was standing on,
was supported by,
the inheritance of Abraham.
he saw a satanic beast arising,
with but the shore on which to stand,
up out of the sea of humanity,
wearing the seven heads of man.
The seven heads of the satanic beast are the seven heads
which speak to the vulnerability of man –
the market place of displaced wealth –
the market place of man:
the seven heads which each speaks in enticing the interest of man by the lure on offer.
To so snare the interest of man within a trap,
whose exit door opens only to reveal his pathway to destruction –
of all he may hold dear.
Beware the spiking of this beast as he places,
each selected victim on one of his ten horns:
the strongholds of man,
where the gatekeepers hold security of tenure,
are loathe to forego their standing before the beast,
are unwilling to vacate their chairs of mastery
of the fallibilities of man:
where each point of appeal is bedecked with a crown of equal glitter –
to so catch the eyes of man.
So his heads were,
so his heads are,
so his heads are known as the antithesis of God,
for those are them which lead man into chains,
which decry a greater good,
which surface in iniquity,
which speak of compulsion rather than of freewill.
So the heads of this beast are known collectively as the Antichrist.”
Rev 13:2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.
“This beast dwells in and is the alter ego of the dragon,
a swift mover,
with the ability –
the strength –
to drag down to the earth what summits in the sky,
with a mouth which knows no hunger yet devours the wealth of man.
Satan bestows on him his power in part,
bestows on him his dominion in part,
bestows on him his full authority in part,
to rule over,
to tease the bankers of the earth,
the financiers of the earth,
the mortgagees of the earth,
the wealth squanderers of the earth:
may first rob and then bestow;
in return for an honour of recognition –
that they may then stand above the face of man.”
Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marvelled and followed the beast.
“So may man see his head today,
his head of indebtedness,
which virtually brought man to his knees,
virtually brought nations to their knees,
virtually brought the earth to bow down to the stronghold of that horn –
the horn of money –
which so stakes,
a claim as it lies,
as it speaks in deceit,
beneath a crown.
Long ago was his dominion of the field of indebtedness,
of the field of money as it was then known,
had its head near wounded unto death,
as those who traded bartered the needs of life,
the wants of life –
seen as the tinsels of adornment.
So man may see the princes of the air –
those in high positions –
in their own self-interest –
having need to paper over,
the wound he so,
Inflicts on the level of indebtedness of institutions,
of the scrooges of the earth –
whether in unity or not –
through his public spiking of each victim,
on the horn of money,
in the daylight of perception.
So his wound requires the servicing of nations.
So is the paper printed,
so it costs the princes naught,
so is it applied to the sore which festers –
without the healing balm.
So the sore still festers as he pauses –
to watch man,
sacrifice the inheritance of generations to the re-instatement,
the reparations as demanded,
the recharging of his power before the world:
even so as his trophy of success still rests in tatters –
to be so borne upon his horn.
So the whole world marvels at the outcome;
so the whole world continues to feed the head of indebtedness without the sense to stop.
So the lemmings of indebtedness race to feed the maw of the casino of the earth.”
Rev 13:4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
“The beast is without peers within the beasts of the earth.
The beast arises within the traits of man,
comes into his own as man seeks to surpass,
seeks to surmount,
seeks to explore the depths within,
seeks to discover the limits of,
the excesses of the soul.
So the beast of man reflects the wilderness of the soul of man –
that which is reflected in the mirror of the soul as seen within the eyes of man.
ask man the question,
“Who is like the beast?”
So man should know the answer.
“Who is able to make war with him?”
Only My servant in his season –
with My wisdom on his tongue,
with My testimony on his lips,
with My grace –
to act in the Name above all Names.”
Rev 13:5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.
“So the beast was given the mysteries of Satan to speak before the face of man,
the words of the occult,
the words of the patterning of man,
the words of the channelling of man,
the words emitted from the mouth heard from the whispering of satan,
the coaching from the wings,
for ears so keen to hear,
for mouths so keen to speak:
for as the pump is primed so will it emit.
So he has his season in the spotlight,
his season in preparation for the siege,
in preparation of the wave of inundation,
in preparation for the wave of destruction which encircles the earth.
So the towers will fall,
so the highest becomes the lowest,
so the fastest becomes the slowest,
so the loudest becomes the quietest,
so the cheapest becomes the dearest,
so the commonest becomes the scarcest,
so the holy becomes the blasphemous –
in a time of cursing.”
Rev 13:6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.
“So arises the time of cursing,
as laid before the peoples of the earth,
as laid against those who dwell in temples,
as laid against all those who dwell in heaven,
as he verily brought blasphemy before the throne of God.
So it was echoed in subservience by all whom hold their allegiance up to satanic forces.”
Rev 13:7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation.
“So is it granted to this beast;
so My servant out of season succumbs within a war.
So the beast acquires authority over all the peoples of earth.”
Rev 13:8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
“As it is written,
so attention should be paid.
As it is written,
so do the ignorant of heart offer allegiance to this beast who is.
so will all those without an entry in the Book of Life worship the beast.”
Rev 13:9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
“So the counsel of God is made known to the ears of man.
Foolish are they who choose to ignore the counsel of The Lord.
Foolish are they who choose to ignore the counsel of The Holy Spirit.
Foolish are they who choose to ignore the counsel of The Father.
Foolish are they who choose to ignore the counsel of The Living God.”
Rev 13:10 He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
“Receive the counselling of God –
from He who sets the captives free.
For as man does treat his fellowman so shall he be treated,
as man so chooses to kill his fellowman so shall he be killed,
like for like,
as justice so declares,
in the absence of repentance.
This will surely come to be:
will surely reward the patience of the saints,
will surely reward the faith of the saints –
as The Kingdom comes.”
Rev 13:11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
“This is yet a further clone of Satan,
arising from the bottomless pit,
of the earth:
a new imprint,
a variant upon a theme of evil,
a new presentation wearing the cloak of concealment to hide the same objectives.
His horns have no need to spike,
yet his voice confirms his origins as of the dragon ilk.”
Rev 13:12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
“So his agenda is empowered.
so his agenda is disclosed,
so his agenda is identified.
Beware the image of the beast,
for all can merge as one when the great dragon roars –
as fire is spewed past boundaries in the direction of man.”
Rev 13:13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
“So the dragon,
the beast before and after,
Satan in his guises,
Satan in his disguises,
is alive to prowl the earth:
testing for a tremble in foundations,
for a quiver in the wind,
for a crack appearing in a façade where a grimace means a lot;
testing for seepage in a retaining wall,
for weakness in a mountain,
for shoring up which speaks of a history of failure,
testing for stress levels until the rod of iron does bend,
for shortcuts when thoroughness falls by the wayside,
for resolve in the face of imminent collapse –
so is his success achieved within the turmoil of a life.
As in My book – Rev 13:13 ... so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
‘As it is written so it was witnessed.
The fire will fall again from heaven on the earth and witnessed by multitudes of men.
The fire will fall according to the direction of The Lord.
The fire will vanquish foes in the twinkling of an eye.
The fire will set the boundary past which no foe shall cross.
The fire will protect the land within the boundary of The Lord.
The fire will establish a Kingdom that shall not be overthrown.
The fire will secure the right of entry across the boundary of the land.
The fire will obey the prompting of The Spirit.
The fire will not retreat.
The fire will advance against the foes.
Great is the sign of fire before the eyes of men.’
As in My book – Rev 13:13 He performs great signs, ...
‘As it is written so it is fulfilled.
As it is written so may all be forewarned.
As it is written great signs will be performed.’
As I continue here –
So will My nation of the covenant be protected from the dragon in the time of need,
protected from the nations who will desire to harm,
protected from the foolishness of the princes of the earth –
the princes of a pact –
on the quest for vengeance which is not theirs to inflict.”
Rev 13:14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
“As in My book –
‘As it is written so it discloses.
As it is written the beast who deceives is made known.
The beast who deceives is the exceeding great company of false prophets,
each one known and numbered,
in the record of the Lamb.
This company of false prophets by their teaching and their leading will capture the hearts and souls of those who listen in acceptance and,
thereby inscribe within their minds the mark that can be read on foreheads by The Spirit of The Lord.
The image to the beast is composed of flaunted wealth –
ignoble wealth not granted presence within the throne-room of God –
wealth that appeals to man,
is clutched and not released,
wealth that far exceeds the needs or generosity of man –
wealth that fuels and feeds the building of the towers of Babel.
in reaching to the heavens in the on-going quest for more:
lust and envy,
to thereby achieve each his attempted domination of another.
Enslave and rob the poor,
conquer and dispossess,
are the catch-cries of the beast that grab the attention of the lost –
all those who will follow the beast seen seeking land,
the beast who was wounded and survived,
the beast who granted all those signs designed so to deceive:
even so Satan cast down to the earth and seen emerging from the sea;
Satan wounded as he fought and warred,
against the very Hosts of Heaven;
Satan gifting signs of deception to those in his sight who willingly bend the knee.
For in these images are the battle lines portrayed and drawn.
For in these images is the kingdom of Satan desolated as territory is retaken;
kingdom of Satan destroyed as its citizens are redeemed;
kingdom of Satan thrown down as its ruler loses his throne,
and is captured in dismay.’
So the reading of My words should be as an overall commitment to clarity:
of the heads and horns of Satan,
of what is therein made known,
of what My words portray as of value to the livelihood of man –
in this time of grace.”
Rev 13:15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
“So the beast,
he who has two horns,
with the granting of the power,
sought to breathe life into the image of the beast within the soul of man,
so the image of the beast may speak in deceit,
to thereby cause those who would not bring themselves to worship
the image of the beast to be killed,
whereupon both their spirit and their soul are preserved unbowed.”
Rev 13:16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
“So are they all inscribed:
in the days of vanity,
in the days of benefit,
in the days of compliance.”
Rev 13:17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
“So control is established throughout the realm of commerce,
so is made known the position of the beast from which he exercises his authority,
so is his tattooed mark of choice received,
so is his name made known,
so the number of his name stands in calculation.”
Rev 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.
“So understanding is to be expanded so wisdom may prevail,
so understanding is to be given so action may follow,
so understanding for mankind is so declared this day.
The number of the beast is calculated with understanding.
The number is the number of a man.
His number is 666.
Man is created on the sixth day as in My word.
Man is created with six senses for the environment in which he dwells:
five senses are to perceive the secular,
the sixth sense is to transmit the sacred –
the lifeline to a home within eternity
Man is created for a three-fold plane of existence:
when sequestered in pre-mortality awaiting birth;
the time spent in his mortality of preparation;
the entering into his eternity of choice.
So he carries body;
and with faith within freewill.
His body carries the catalyst of transformation,
the other five have no mass to carry.
These are the six interwoven factors which may set a man upon a throne,
may place a man within the depths.
So 666 establishes who and why man is:
So man sees his number of uniqueness,
identifies the being,
the entity of existence,
when gazing on the pool of knowledge,
on a reflective surface,
on an image of himself.
So each man should know his number;
should marvel at his origin,
should take all steps to ensure he does not validate himself as a
parcel for consignment,
should seek entry to the haven –
the ultimate in grand design.
For the beast is in the soul of every man –
to be released in folly,
to be forsworn in wisdom.
As the beast resides within,
so he is numbered with,
so he is accommodated by,
him in whom he dwells.
As the beast is released,
so accountability falls on a man for failure of containment,
for actions not taken,
for wisdom not obtained.
Let those with wisdom understand how to cut down,
how to remove,
the beast within –
how to be equipped with the sword to do that job –
how to acquire and wield the sword as an adjunct to The Spirit.”
