Before studying, you may want to study up on the fact that the Vatican is the Earthly residence of Antichrist. This website alone has literally thousands of pages of data regarding this undeniable fact. What I would like to do on this page however is to reveal yet "another beast" that prophecy declares will help the beast in the Vatican enforce its mark upon all of mankind.
The "first beast" that received the deadly wound was indeed the Vatican. For the sake of clarity, let's review that period in history when the wound was administered to see if the prophecy helps us realize who this second beast is.
In prophecy: The sea = many different people
Fact: Roman Catholicism arose out of Western Europe with a multitude of "peoples, nations, and tongues" as parishoners. And presently the Roman Catholic church sports the highest number of "peoples, nations and tongues" the world over. In fact, as of 2010 there are 175 nations out of 192 on earth in agreement with Vatican city.
Anyone with "eyes that see" can realize the Vatican is identified in Prophecy as the beast that comes forth from the "sea." For a list of numerous prophecies exposing the Vatican in this and many other prophecies. See these links...
Students of prophecy understand the first beast has already received its "mortal wound" as Revelation 13:3 & 10 speaks of, and History so accurately records...
Fact: "In 1798 General Berthier made his entrance into Rome, abolished the papal government, and established a secular one." -Encyclopedia Britannica 1941 edition
Fact: Pope went into exile and died.
Directly AFTER Revelation 13:10 declares the first beast will be mortally wounded, we see verse 11 declaring yet ANOTHER BEAST will appear at that time as well. This is where we begin to see the truth about the United States coing to light.
This prophecy chronologically links the Pope's captivity in 1798, and death in 1799, with an emergence of another beast. However, this second beast will not be coming out of a "multitude of nations, tongues and peoples." It will be coming up out of the "earth" instead. Can we know who this beast is that began to arise in power around the end of the 18th century? And does prophecy also explain what it means to come up from the "earth?"
Before going further, We must understand the prophecy defines a "beast as a nation and or political power." Daniel gives ample understanding of that fact as we will see in a moment. Plus, we must also understand that "horns" in prophecy are defined as "kings" or "ruling entities" that govern the nations.
In prophecy: A beast = a nation. A king = a ruler
As we learned earlier, Revelation 17:15 defined the "waters" that the first beast rose from was the densely populated areas of the world that held many peoples, nations, and tongues. However, the opposite of that would be an uprising out of the "earth" where no one of any "power" resided beforehand. Is there such a place in history?
Historic fact is, The only power which arose out of a sparsely-populated area at the end of the 18th century was in fact the United States. America came out of the new world "officially in 1776, which is definitely at the end of the 18th century. This is also the same time in history when the Vatican received its mortal wound of 1798. But, does the United States of America accurately fit all the features of this prophecy?
Are there any other identifying aspects of this prophecy that only the United States could fulfill?
Revelation 13:11 stated earlier that this nation which arises at the end of the 18th century will display "lamb-like" features. This in fact accurately identifies the "Christian beginnings" of the United States of America. The Christian (lamb-like) traditions of the United States was drafted directly into the fabric of this nation. Even the Constitution of this land was designed to reflect a belief and trust in the Christian God. However, the prophecy also states plainly that this nation will eventually "speak as a dragon" does it not? As many are aware, the United States of America is in fact the most powerful nation on Earth, and it has been known to do horrendeous acts on foreign soil and quite recently right here at home as well. It has held the position of a "superpower" for the majority of its history. This fearsome power has literally ruled over all the nations of this world for some time now. And it has done so by FORCE! Everything from having dropped Atomic Bombs on the Japanese people killing tens of thousands instantly and hundreds of thousands by radiation poisoning over the years. Not to mention even more birth defects. The USA has also been know to enforce financial embargos designed to cripple entire nation s that won't do as they demand. But the prophetic descriptions do not end there. Not only does this "lamb-like" nation help the Christians flee Vatican persecutions as well as speak as a dragon. This nation will also be used to attack the children of God the world over.
The devil will persecute the people controlled by the Vatican as well as the United States in these last days. Satan will actually use the Vatican inhabitants (sea) and Americans (earth) to enforce the mark of the beast on their own people! Fact is, that actually entails ALL of mankind! The Vatican does have it's controlling powers in almost every nation now, just as the United States has theirs. An amazing fact that MANY miss is we can actually see the makings of a SATANIC TRINITY in the way the Dragon, the Vatican and the America government are all coming together as one in agreement with the final desires of Satan himself. That is, to enforce the mark of the beast.
We know who the beast from the sea is, and we know who the beats from the earth is. But who is this dragon?
Here is something MANY people miss regarding the Dragon, the Vatican, and the USA.. Satan always mocks the Lord because God's design is perfect and he knows it. So he uses Heavenly structured methods, but of course he does so with satanic wickedness. Notice these three tables that illustrate the actual mockery of the God head by Satan and his cohorts.
The political power of the beast rising from the earth will not want worship. However, it will enforce worship of the beast rising up from the sea instead. This is mainly because the Vatican has always been known to seek mankind to bow to the popes. Since the system is already in place and leaders the world over already worship the popes, it would work best to continue on in this manner. When the United States of America puts forth law that declares you must agree with, give reverence to, and obey the laws of the Vatican over and above the Law of God, they will at this time force all of manking to worship the pope. How is this possible? How will they do it?
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 and the break up of the Soviet Union in 1991, the United States has become a major player in international policy as well as international legislation. Its influence over the nations is second to none! When the White House speaks everyone on earth listens intently. And since the fire came down "in the sight of men" when the United States bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, the American "voice" (speaks as a dragon) was recognized as a voice that boldly states, "DO AS WE SAY OR ELSE!" Soon their acts will be even more theatric as it is plainly written that the United States will "deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do..."[-Revelation 13:14]
The United States will charm and deceive those that dwell in the earth not only by their military power and political savvy. The "American way" has become the standard by which all the other nations of the world strive to emulate Almost everyone wants to be in America! Satan knew that America could do it in both ways. By FORCE in those nations that wouldn't agree, and by "CHOICE" in those nations that strive to emulate it.
The United States placed their first "ambassador to the Vatican" in 1984. Since then the movements of Rome have been more and more obvious within the governing halls of Washington DC. The most graphic accomplishment of the Roman~American connection was obviously seen in the fall of the Berlin Wall as well as the break up of Communism. Now when people look at the Vatican with its evil desires, they know the massive power of the American military is under their thumb. Worse yet, the small handful of nations that still refuse to bow to the pope know full well 175 nations have! They literally have state dtime and time again that "who is like unto the Vatican? Who can make war with them?" Yes, it's mostly because of the American technological advances in weaponry that scare them, still... that's not where prophecy stops illustrating.
Prophecy declares the United States must set up an "image of the beast." Before long, the United States Government will not only flex its governing abilities on a civil level. It must also influence the world's religious leaders as well. The United States will create a system that appears as a duplicate to the beast in Rome. It must do as Rome does. And since Rome not only governs in a "civil" manner, as well as a "religious" manner. America must generate a similar fashion of government. The United States needs to set up a religio-political system that emulates Rome for this prophecy to be fulfilled. Keep in mind, this is regardless of the fact that Jesus said we must keep church & state separate! Our Creator plainly stated in Matthew 22:21, "...Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's."
The Vatican has ignored that basic fact since day one as we all can plainly see. According to prophecy, the USA will do the very same thing. They will totally ignore what history so graphically recorded as the end results of a "church & state" conglomerate. The Roman Catholic Vatican killed more than 500 MILLION people when they had their "42 prophetic months" of power during the dark ages. The United States chooses to ignore this historic fact with a rather graphic and quite satanic faithless fervor.
Prophecy is so boldly declaring that a "Christian Coalition" must be formed in these last days that will eventually undermine the church & state separation so as to push forth their agenda. Not knowing of course that their agenda has been all along the real agenda of Rome. The Roman catholic church has infiltrated every aspect of Protestantism to such an extent that there is now no difference between the two today. The leaders of the church that once protested against Rome have now decided to return to their mother church so as to do what they feel is the necessary thing in these evil days. They see all the decadence of the halls of justice in D.C. as well as the sewage of Hollywood, and the garbage spewing from Rock & Roll producers as well as the drug culture of America as a reason to abolish church & state separation so as to "do the moral and right thing" in government. Fact is, they played right into the hands of Rome. Recorded historic fact is, ALL that evil was orchestrated FROM the Vatican in the first place. This ministry's thousands of pages of PROOF on this website is merely one ministry out of countless others that have proven that fact overwhelmingly. Yet, it will still happen... and happen soon! In fact, I had to recently update this page because THAT DAY HAS COME!
The mainstream churches of American have joined together as on June 26, 2000 to follow after the peope and all he wishes. Thanks to the first Roman Catholic president, John F. Kennedy, who not only outlawed prayer in schools and enacted blue laws outlawing Sunday work in government agencies, his vice president Lyndon Johnson set up the 501C3 tax free system for all churches. In order to receive their tax free status they must join their churches with their State of origin! That is a copy of the Vatican city / Roman Catholic church. But it gets worse! Yes, all churches in the USA (except a few like mine) are a church & State conglomorate. But they were unable do as Rome does yet when it comes to lobbying law. So, on March 7th 2006 the Bush administration put into law a brand new executive order (# 13397) that REMOVES the separation of church and state and forces all churches (with 501C3 status) to become government agencies capable of lobbying law! (See much more info on this here) Anyone with half a brain can see, the politicians of this nation will do everything in their power to assure re-election. If the massive pool of Christian voters want their voice heard, you can rest assured that they will be heard! Especially now that they have a voting block that outshines any other. Problem is, it's a Roman Catholic contrived block that will bring about the prophecied mark of the beast.
By the way, with that 501C3 status comes to command that NOTHING POLITICAL is allowed from church pulpits. This is why all the American churches stopped preaching prophecy! If they speak about the antichrist in Rome, they will loose their 501C3 status and be fined millions of dollars! You see, the Vatican is not only a church spoken of in prophecy, it is also a political entity. (Vatican City) So don't expect any church with a 501C3 to help your or your family get ready for the prophecied Antichrist. As Jesus said, they are in it for the money... not the message.
So.. how does it all come about?
Once this religio-political system is setup in America. We will all see the American President putting force laws that directly benefit the Vatican so as to enforce the mark of the beast upon all mankind. Of course it will first be enforced in America. Soon after, all will see this mark enforced on a global scale. Anyone that refuses will be found without the ability to buy and sell, and then shortly after that they will be finding themselves at the business end of a guillotine. (See... Guillotines in America? for more information on this.)
By the way, if you feel America or any other nation on Earth is incapable of preventing you and I from buying and selling, let me ask you this. Do you remember "ration stamps" that the United States Government strictly enforced during World War II?
These ration stamps were used to control the "buying and selling" of such things as FOOD, FUEL, TIRES, and other necessities of life. If your not old enough to remember these historic facts, ask your parents or grandparents for the truth about this. Or research it on the Internet. I am positive there are millions of "historic" websites out there with ample information. Plus, with today's technology all they had to do is create an ID Card that will hodl all your private information, which includes your bank records, employment, religiosity, ethnicity, health records, marital status, etc. That way when they ask you the question on that fateful day, "do you agree with the Roman mandate?" Your answering "No!" will see all your abilities to buy and sell turned off in an instant anywhere in the world. Is there such a system setup right now that can do this using the Internet? Yes there is, cick here for more info.
Has this method of mass control been used before you ask? Yes it has...
The government of Daniel's day put forth laws that promised death if you did not worship the "image" it had set up! As we saw, Daniel's three friends refused to break the Law of God for the laws of mankind. This of course angered the king of that day, just like it will anger the governing bodies of our day when "certain Christians" refuse to break the Law of God for the law of man.
Talk about pressure! These three men of God stood the ultimate test in the face of a true enemy determined to kill them in a most painful way if they chose not to worship his image. So, what did they do?
The story DOES have a happy ending just as we will have as well. The Lord Jesus arrived to save them just as He will arrive to prevent the deaths of those true Christians found worthy of enduring the plagues of Revelation. The king did in fact throw Daniel's three friends into the fiery furnace. However, this is what he saw after doing so...
Still, there are many that will see death before the plagues fall. Not all can be part of that Gideon band that have the faith to endire the plagues. The governments of this world will indeed behead many that refuse to go along with the Vatican and its image, for it is written...
Not to worry... This is all part of the Heavenly plan. 1 Peter 4:12-13 so lovingly declares, "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy."
Ellen G. White put it ever so BLUNTLY when she said...
So... is the USA setting up an image of the beast? Will the Christian Coalition that was formed by Pat Robertson be used by the dragon to get the American politicians passing laws that will guarantee votes as well as pacify the "so called" Christian churches of America? Will these laws be that "pacify" the Christian Coalition be Roman laws? Will the American politicians give the Christian Coalition a voice that echoes that of Rome? Will certain Government agencies be re-structured to assure the Vatican's desires are enforced? Will the United States of America have a "CIVIL" as well as a "RELIGIOUS" voice designed to enforce the mark of the beast?
Is the power of the Pope primed and ready?
Is the power of the USA primed and ready?
Read CAREFULLY the following article excerpts. They effect each and every one of us here in America! Tell me, do you see the American Government giving the Christian churches a powerful voice today? After reading below. Do you see a CIVIL power and a RELIGIOUS power in America? Does this not emulate perfectly the CIVIL and RELIGIOUS power of the first beast in Rome?
By Dana Milbank
Pat Robertson's resignation this month as president of the Christian Coalition confirmed the ascendance of a new leader of the religious right in America: George W. Bush.
For the first time since religious conservatives became a modern political movement, the president of the United States has become the movement's de facto leader -- a status even Ronald Reagan, though admired by religious conservatives, never earned. Christian publications, radio and television shower Bush with praise, while preachers from the pulpit treat his leadership as an act of providence. A procession of religious leaders who have met with him testify to his faith, while Web sites encourage people to fast and pray for the president.
There are several reasons for the adulation. Religious conservatives have regarded Bush as one of their own since the presidential campaign, when he spoke during a debate of the guidance of Jesus. At the same time, key figures in the religious right -- Robertson, Jerry Falwell, James Dobson, Billy Graham and Franklin Graham -- have receded in political prominence or influence, in part because they are no longer mobilized by their opposition to a president. Bush's handling of the anti-terrorism campaign since Sept. 11 has solidified his standing by painting him in stark terms as the leader in a fight of good against evil.
"I think Robertson stepped down because the position has already been filled," said Gary Bauer, a religious conservative who challenged Bush in the Republican primary. Bush "is that leader right now. There was already a great deal of identification with the president before 9-11 in the world of the Christian right, and the nature of this war is such that it's heightened the sense that a man of God is in the White House."
Ralph Reed, who once led the Christian Coalition and now is chairman of the Georgia GOP, notes that the religious conservative movement "no longer plays the institutional role it once did," in part because it succeeded in electing Bush and other friendly leaders. "You're no longer throwing rocks at the building; you're in the building."
Conservative Christians tend to view Bush's recent success as part of a divine plan. "I've heard a lot of 'God knew something we didn't,' " Reed said. "In the evangelical mind, the notion of an omniscient God is central to their theology. He had a knowledge nobody else had: He knew George Bush had the ability to lead in this compelling way."
Still, some of those around Bush say they have a sense that a higher purpose is involved. "I think President Bush is God's man at this hour, and I say this with a great sense of humility," Bush aide Tim Goeglein, described as a "strong evangelical," told World magazine, a Christian publication. © 2001 The Washington Post Company

Ashcroft: Old Rules Aided Terrorists
(FBI Given more power)
By Bill Miller
Saying that the FBI's own rules have provided terrorists with a "competitive advantage," Attorney General John D. Ashcroft unveiled new guidelines yesterday that will permit agents to more freely conduct surveillance at political rallies and religious gatherings, surf the Internet and mine commercial databases for information.
The changes give the FBI -- whose primary mission now is preventing terrorist attacks -- greater ability to gather the intelligence it needs, Ashcroft said. They loosen guidelines imposed after FBI domestic spying scandals of the 1960s and 1970s.
But the rule changes, which take effect immediately, quickly drew sharp criticism from civil liberties groups, political activists and some members of Congress, who said they could encourage snooping without cause and a return to the kind of abuses for which the regime of then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover became infamous.
"Americans have not forgotten the abuse of civil liberties which took place in the '60s and '70s under the name of law enforcement," said Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich (D-Ohio). "We have to make sure that civil liberties are not placed in jeopardy."
Laura W. Murphy, director of the national office of the American Civil Liberties Union, contended that the FBI already has enough authority to develop terrorism cases. "They are taking advantage of the public's concern about 9/11 . . . and they are rushing in a whole new set of powers," she said.
...He also gave the FBI's 56 field offices more latitude to launch counterterror investigations without approval from headquarters.
Ashcroft said he also was removing a barrier that kept agents from developing leads by surfing public Internet sites unless the work was tied to an individual criminal investigation.
The FBI has a long and checkered history of spying and harassing domestic groups, dating to 1950s activity against alleged Communist sympathizers and later investigations of the personal lives of civil rights leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr.
The new guidelines do not specifically mention religious institutions. But Justice Department officials confirmed that agents now would be able to enter houses of worship to look for signs of terrorist activity without probable cause or evidence leading them to believe that someone in the group has broken the law, a departure from past practice.
Jason Erb, director of governmental affairs for the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said he fears agents will waste resources on broad sweeps that threaten civil rights instead of focusing on actual evidence of crimes. He said he feared that the net result would be to threaten religious freedoms and quell political dissent.
