2nd beast of Rev 13
Image of the first Beast
The first beast, the Image of the first beast, and the scarlet beast the harlot rides, are all the same Islamic Empire in different stages of it's existence.
|Rev. 13: 14 And he (second beast) deceives those who dwell on the Earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image of the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life.|
I didn't understand what He meant for many years. What in the world could Bosnia have to do with Islam or Iraq? I began to understand after 9/11, when a form of Radical Islam attacked the US. As I watched the second plane hit the second Tower the Lord said "Taliban". I asked my husband if he had ever heard the word. Niether of us had. As the weeks and months passed I began to understand what it all had to do with Bosnia and the Image of the beast growing from there.
course we all now know what the Taliban is, and who Osama bin Lauden
was. I learned that Osama had sent 3,000 fighters, what he called Holy
to Bosnia to help the Muslims in hopes of defeating the enemy of Islam.
After that war ended Osama gave orders for some of his men to
remain in Bosnia and get passports, and wait for further orders.
He then sent them to America where they were to take flying
lessons. We know what happened next.
In the aftermath of America's "Black September," it was confirmed in Sarajevo that the Muslim authorities of Bosnia-Herzegovina had issued a passport to Osama bin Laden at the Bosnian embassy in Vienna in 1993. The intention was obviously to facilitate the movements of a man who was fast acquiring the reputation of a dangerous terrorist.
That the government in Sarajevo was sympathetic to Islamic militants is neither surprising nor remarkable, of course, but in this particular case there was an old debt to be repaid. Osama Bin Laden was an early supplier of weapons to the Bosnian Muslims. His early efforts in 1992-93 were known to the Clinton administration and quietly tolerated by it. He was given a free hand in the Balkans and eventually established a strong foothold in the heart of Europe, initially under the guise of humanitarian work.
The facts of the case were known to the media. In the summer of 1996, the Washington Post confirmed that "the Clinton administration knew of the activities of a so-called Relief Agency which was, in fact, funneling weapons and money into Bosnia to prop up the Izetebegovic Muslim government in Sarajevo."
It was funneling troops, too. The mujahideen had first come to Bosnia in 1992 and numbered over 3,000 by the summer of 1995. They included volunteers from the Middle East, as well as deserters from the Turkish, Malaysian and French UNPROFOR units. They never took prisoners: wounded Serb soldiers were usually beheaded.
Under the Dayton Peace Accords, all Islamic volunteers who fought with the Muslim government army were supposed to leave the country. An undisclosed number remained, however, having been given Bosnian citizenship and permanent residence. Several hundred had taken over what was the Serbian village of Bocinja Donja, in central Bosnia, and provided instruction to local Muslim forces in terrorist activities.
They first attracted attention when on December 18, 1995--only a month after Dayton--a car bomb prematurely exploded in the central Bosnian town of Zenica. It was apparently meant for American troops stationed nearby, as revenge for the sentencing of Sheik Omah Abdel Rahman in connection with the World Trade Center bombing.
Two months later, in February 1996, SFOR units raided the training center of the Bosnian government's secret police (AID), located near Fojnica. Several persons were arrested for preparing terrorist actions. It transpired that instructors from the Middle East were teaching AID officers how to disguise bombs as toys and ice cream cones.
Only months later the Bosnian Connection started making
an impact abroad. Reporting on the bombing of the Al Khobar building in
Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the New York Times reported on June 26, 1997, that
several suspects had served with the Bosnian Muslim forces and were linked
to Osama Bin Laden. From that point on the United States and its allies
had complained periodically and ineffectually to the Muslim authorities
in Sarajevo about the continued presence of the mujahadeen in Bosnia.
Out of the Taliban came Al-Qeada and out of that came ISIS. And ISIS has become the Islamic Caliphate in Iraq and Syria, which might possibly grow to become the Image of the first beast, if it continues to gain power.
It wouldn't be long before
these tactics used by the radical Islamists would become a world wide
problem, with terrorism threatening any country that dared to speak against
them or control them. Islamic countries had very little pull in the
world in 1997 but now it has become a huge threat. When I first began
on the internet in 1997 to tell people that the first beast was the Islamic
Empire and that it was going to be revived in the last days, people scoffed
at me. They saw NO threat from these third world countries. Now the light
is dawning on them, especially after September 11th. We have watched
the creating of the Image of the first beast.
|Rev. 13:16 he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or their forehead.|
Allah supposedly gave his law... so if a person worship him, then they follow that diferent law called the Koran and have the mark of the beast.
The God of Israel did not cancel the Bible and write a new book of laws called the Koran. Different book... different god! Don't be fooled into thinking it is the same God.
So to be Jewish meant to have the mark of God on your right hand and on your forehead. As Christians, we also have the mark of God on our foreheads and right hand because we are the offspring through Jesus, His Son is our Deliverer.
The Mark of the beast is to be Muslim.
Now I would suspect that John, when seeing or hearing this symbolism of a mark in his vision, knew what it meant because He was a Jew and had the remembrance of who delivered his people and by whose hand it was done. GOD.
So what will the
second beast do after he causes the world to create the image and breathes
life into it so that it might speak?
|Rev. 13:17 And he provides that no one should be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.|
|Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.|
Rev 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.
|Rev 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.|
Are you for Jesus or against Him?
The first of the
bowls of God's wrath will be poured out on the ones who have the mark.
|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 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.|
I believe the Image of the first Beast under the rule of this fallen angel, Abaddon, is a revived Islamic Empire.
A couple weeks ago I was looking up the word Abaddon, the evil angel that is loosed during the 5th trump. I had looked up this name many time before and never found anything more than that he was the "Angel of Destruction". But this time I Googled the name and up came information I had never heard. The Jews believed that Abaddon was the "Angel of Death" in charge of the bottomless pit. The word perdition (hell) is also translated as destruction, hence the "angel of destruction".
We are told about the angel of Death in three places in the Book of Revelation;
The 4th seal. The rider is Death and Hedes follows.
2. The 5th trump as the Angel of Destruction (Death), Abaddon, ascends out of the pit. So the 4th seal represents the events of the 5th trump.
3. And as the scarlet beast with seven heads and ten horns, that the harlot Israel rides in chapter 17. This scarlet beast being the same Image of the first beast seen in chapter 13, now transformed by the one that comes out of the bottomless pit to go to destruction, as a revived Empire, symbolized here by an 8th head.
|Rev 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.|
The first beast/old Islamic Empire once ruled not only over the middle East, but stretched into the Balkans, the Islands of Asia, clear to Afghanistan, and southern Russia, and the upper parts and east coast, of Africa. As this beast (an Image of it's former self) rises to power once again, an 8th head that is really one of the 7 coming back into power. I believe that when John saw the Image (in chapter 13) it looked just like the first beast with the body of the leopard and feet of the bear, but now he is being shown it as a scarlet beast with the same heads of the first beast and same ten horns, the beast is now scarlet because of the angel that came out of the pit. Just as satan is shown as a red serpent with the same 7 heads and ten horns. This symbolism of the color red shows that the beast/empire is now under the control of a fallen angel. This beast of Islam doesn't fool the Christians though, we know the actions of the Muslim empire, how it has killed both Christians and Jews for centuries. And even though a leopard can not change it's spots, this image of it has. It took on the likeness of the evil angel and has gave it its authority to act.
believe we can see some of the actions that the Image takes in Rev 6.
|Rev 6:8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hedes followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.|
that those that live and die for the cause of the Holy Jihad, death and
destruction soon follows and thousands of thousands die. They kill
Jews and Christians, but they also kill people of their own faith,
any that go agianst them, or simply happen to be in the wrong place at
the wrong time, when one of them is sent to blow themselves up for the
cause. There is no value in human life to these terrorists that kill in
the name of Allah.
Don't worship Allah, nor call him the God of Abraham. Don't submit to, nor hold in high regard, those in power that support, or work for, the sake of Islam in any way, shape, or form. To do so is to support satan in his efforts to convert, or destroy, all those that are Covenanted to God.
