The Beast, the Whore, and the Dragon

Intro

“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus Christ), and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death” (Revelation 12:9-11).

"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: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" (Revelation 14:9-11).

“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” (Revelation 19:20).

The prophets of the Old Testament and the Apostles of the New Testament spelled out Satan's end-time scenario that would lead us to a third world war starting in the Middle East (Ezekiel 38-39 & Revelation 9), a global financial collapse, a new monetary system controlled by something implanted in our bodies, a world government, mass imprisonment and killings of true, Bible-believing Christians (beheading being one of the preferred methods Revelation 13 & Revelation 20), great deception from very visible religious leaders, hatred for the state of Israel, all culminating in a movement of world armies to annihilate Israel at the battle of Armageddon and the physical return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth to defeat those armies and set up His kingdom (Revelation 16-19). And these prophecies range from older than 3,000 BC to the final book of prophecy written in 95 AD by the Apostle John (something astounding in itself).

One of the most amazing of the Hebrew prophets was Daniel. He served in the court of King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon and later King Cyrus of Persia. During the reign of Cyrus, Daniel was shown several visions of the future, particularly the end time when the Messiah would return. In the visions, the Lord God of Abraham showed Daniel four great kingdoms that would rise in the last days and provided him with great detail about each. God did this by revealing them as different beasts. The angel told Daniel, “These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth” (Daniel 7:17).

First, he saw a lion that had the wings of an eagle until the wings were plucked. We now understand that this lion represents the great British Empire because the symbol for England is a lion and the eagle (the United States) came out of the lion (England). Another beast was a bear with three ribs in its mouth that was told to arise and devour much flesh. The bear is the symbol of Russia. This prophecy came to pass as Russia rose up and killed millions through its Communist revolutions across Europe, Asia, and Central & South America. We also see the Russian bear still on the move in taking Crimea and getting ready for a broader war. The four-headed leopard with wings represents the fourth German-dominated European Union and ten-horned beast will be unlike all the others because it will unite all nations under a ten region world government. Of course there is much more information to back up these interpretations, but I just wanted it to be clear that the prophets referred to kingdoms as beasts. Some traditional teachings on Daniel 7 say that Babylon was the lion and Persia was the bear, however, those nations already existed and the Scripture said that the four kingdoms “shall arise” which means that they did not exist at that time.

The book of Revelation was written around 700 years after Daniel prophecies by the beloved disciple of Jesus, John. His vision of the resurrected Jesus Christ was identical to the one Daniel had seven centuries before. John was also shown a vision of how the end times would play out. We also see many of the same things Daniel foretold, but with more explanation. For instance, in Revelation chapter 13, we see that in the last days these four beasts (nations) in Daniel 7 have united into one beast with seven heads and ten horns. That means that 2000 year ago, God showed us that at the time of the great tribulation and the second coming of Jesus Christ there would be a United Nations. The Apostle John goes on to tell us that this “United Nations Beast” would speak blasphemous things against the God of the Bible and move to make war against Christians and the nation of Israel. The Bible also tells us that this beast would worship Satan i.e. the Dragon i.e. Lucifer. This also agrees with what Daniel saw concerning the last days.

As I have studied the Bible, researched history, and watched current events since the 1980s, I have discovered that exactly what these prophets foretold has been and is unfolding to the letter. And when I discovered that the United Nations goal is to become a world government and that it also has a spiritual side that was adopted from the writings of occultist Alice Bailey, I knew beyond any shadow of a doubt that the United Nations is the beginning of the world government beast that both Daniel and the Apostle John saw for the end of the age.

The name of Alice Bailey’s organization (that has been embedded in the United Nations for decades) is presently called the Lucis Trust. However, when Bailey founded it in 1922, the Lucis Trust was named The Lucifer Publishing. Alice Bailey was the disciple of occultist Helen Blavatsky who originally founded the magazine called Lucifer. Blavatsky was a very dedicated witch and wrote in her book The Secret Doctrine that "Lucifer is God and the Light." She even taught that Satan is the Logos (a Greek term used in the Bible to describe the Lord Jesus Christ as God in the flesh) and she calls Lucifer the Holy Spirit. This is blasphemy to the highest degree of the true God of Abraham and His ONLY Messiah Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, the Lucis Trust is a recognized NGO (Non-governmental Organization) of the United Nations and sits on the board of UN's economic and social council.

Here are several quotes from Helen Blavatsky's book The Secret Doctrine:

"One of the most hidden secrets involves the so-called fall of Angels. Satan and his rebellious host will thus prove to have become the direct Saviours and Creators of divine man. Thus Satan, once he ceases to be viewed in the superstitious spirit of the church, grows into the grandiose image. It is Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God. Satan (or Lucifer) represents the Centrifugal Energy of the Universe, this ever-living symbol of self-sacrifice for the intellectual independence of humanity." pages 215, 216, 220, 245, 255, 533 (VI)

“Lucifer represents.. Life.. Thought.. Progress.. Civilization.. Liberty.. Independence.. Lucifer is the Logos.. The Serpent, the Savior.” pages 171, 225, 255 (Volume II).

“The Celestial Virgin which thus becomes the Mother of Gods and Devils at one and the same time; for she is the ever-loving beneficent Deity…but in antiquity and reality Lucifer or Luciferius is the name. Lucifer is divine and terrestrial Light, ‘the Holy Ghost’ and ‘Satan’ at one and the same time.” page 539

So it is clear that Alice Bailey's mentor was dedicated to Lucifer (or Satan) and his fallen angels. And now the Satanic writings of Alice Bailey and her organization are deeply embedded in the United Nations. Her writings are also the spiritual foundation of the UN-sanctioned, Robert Muller World Core Curriculum taught in his more than thirty schools throughout the world, including Arlington, Texas. In fact, in the preface to Robert Muller's World Core Curriculum, it states,

“The underlying philosophy upon which the Robert Muller School is based will be found in the teachings set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey… The school is now certified as a United Nations Associated School providing education for international cooperation and peace.”

Robert Muller was the Assistant Secretary General of the UN for over 40 years and he was an advocate for a world government via the UN for many decades. He was also a very devoted disciple of Alice Bailey who taught her followers to pray for the coming of the Antichrist to lead them into the Age of Aquarius or the New Age. 

The Lamb Who Speaks Like the Dragon

As we continue on in Revelation 13 we see that the Apostle John saw two different "beasts" that will work together in the last days to fulfill Satan's plan for the world. They will be two men that will represent two large entities; one political and the other religious. Both “beasts” will promote and enforce a totalitarian world government, a global economic system (controlled by something implanted in the hand or forehead of every person), and a new religion that rejects Jesus Christ as the only way to heaven. Of course we now have the technology to accomplish the feat of controlling all financial transactions with a very small implantable RFID microchip, satellites and the internet. And make no mistake, the coming world government authority will soon control who "buys or sells" just like the Bible warned. This is another reason why we Americans have witnessed several of our Presidents including Obama push for more and more submission to UN treaties and things like Agenda 21. This is also why our rogue government has defied our Constitution with NSA spying, brainwashed Federal and local law enforcement that Christians and patriots are "domestic terrorists, funded FEMA and DHS to build prison camps throughout America preparing to implement martial law and the unlawful detainment of American citizens...it is all part of the bigger agenda.

The Bible goes on to tell us that these two world leaders will deceive the majority of people in the world with promises of peace, social/economic justice, and the working of great demonic miracles. The first beast is the UN world government and the coming "moderate Muslim" that will arise to lead it. The second beast is referred to as having "two horns like a Lamb" but he speaks as a Dragon or the Devil. That means that this second beast of Revelation 13 is like a Lamb (appearing to be gentle and harmless) but he will be the mouthpiece of Satan. He will speak deceptive things that sound good to the world, but they will be in direct opposition to God and the truth of the Bible. He will also push the world to worship or be loyal to the first beast (the New World Order of false peace via the UN). So, we have a political leader of a beast world government and a religious leader who appears to be a Lamb (the symbol of Jesus Christ and His followers) who will work together to deceive the entire world. After much study, research and prayer I know that this second beast that looks like a lamb can be none other than the last Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. (I also find it interesting that horns in Scripture can represent leaders and this second beast that has "two horns" might be referring to the fact that Rome would have two popes alive during this end time prophecy....we shall see).

The Great Whore

Of course, some people want to accuse me of wild speculation about the Roman Catholic Church being the Great Whore Mystery Babylon because they have been duped by Rome or they have bought into the false idea that America is Mystery Babylon, but Revelation 17 shows the same two entities working together as we see in Revelation 13 only in a slightly different way. It shows the seven-headed beasts with ten horns (the UN world government) but then it shows another entity riding the beast. That entity is depicted as harlot wearing scarlet and purple and holding a golden cup in her hand full of idolatry. Then, the passage goes on to give many identifying clues about Mystery Babylon and it can be none other than the Roman Catholic Church.

"And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the GREAT WHORE that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication (in Greek this word also means idolatry). So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in PURPLE and SCARLET colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns… And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.” (Revelation 17:1-7, Revelation 9).

Thus, the Bible describes this “Mother of Harlots” as being clothed in scarlet and purple, drunk with the blood of the saints it killed, and a city on seven mountains/hills. Just the clue that this entity is "drunk with the blood of the saints" would rule out the USA as Mystery Babylon. Furthermore, Mystery Babylon is said to be very wealthy and deeply involved in the world economy and this is touted as the main reason why the USA has to be the Great Whore, but when we look at reality we see that America is broke. We are over $17 trillion in debt and that is not even counting derivatives. And with the revelations of Karen Hudes (the twenty year attorney at the World Bank turned whistle-blower) on the global economic corruption and stating publicly that 40% of US tax dollars goes to the European bankers and the other 60% goes to the Jesuits at the Vatican...there is no doubt who controls the world's wealth/economy and it is NOT the United States of America. (Oh and if you are wondering where we get money to pay our own bills, the answer is simple: we print it and make up the difference with drug money from CIA drug sells. Why else have US troops been guarding the opium fields in Afghanistan for years)?

A little research of history leaves no doubt that the “great whore” that will work with the Beast at the time of the end is the Roman Catholic Church. Popes have even referred to her as the “Mother Church." Any quick search of an encyclopedia will reveal that Rome is most famously known as “the city on seven hills.” The colors of the two ruling branches of the Roman Catholic priesthood are purple and scarlet red. Bishops wear purple and Cardinals wear red. In fact, the popes wore red until the 1500’s, and at times still do. It is also a historical fact that the Roman Catholic Church has slaughtered millions of true Christians and Jews over the centuries in their inquisitions and by supporting people like Hitler and other communist regimes. Even Pope Francis supported the slaughter of innocents in Argentina during the seven year reign of a brutal communist dictator. And we all know about Pope Benedict's years as a Nazi Youth and allowing pedophile priests to continue raping children. So, we can be certain that the pope in charge of the Roman Church at the end is the false prophet who works with the Antichrist throughout the tribulation period.

This is something that I have believed and taught since the late 1980’s. And now, after more than 27 years of studying the Bible and watching the events of our time unfold, I am convinced that Pope Francis is most likely the last pope. If this is true then that means we should see him trying to appear as sweet and gentle as a lamb while he speaks things straight from the mouth of Satan. Well, over the last several months since his election, Pope Francis has not wasted any time as he began speaking some of Satan's favorite false teachings. When asked a question about the sin of homosexuality his response was, "Who I am to judge?" 1 Then, he stated that even atheist would go to heaven if they were good people.2 This statement alone is one of the greatest blasphemies of Satan! It totally negates the entire reason that Jesus Christ (God in the flesh) came to earth as a man and shed His sinless blood on the cross for our sins. It is a total rejection of what Jesus and the Apostles taught in the New Testament regarding the requirements of faith in Jesus Christ and repentance from sin in order to be saved from an eternity in hell. And then last week Pope Francis spewed out his most evil attack on true Bible-believing Christians. He stated that those who are "rigid" in their beliefs have an "illness" and are no longer disciples of Jesus.3 Truly, this pope appears to be a gentle, loving, tolerant lamb, but he speaks the ideologies of Satan the Dragon.

Rome & Islam

In the days ahead, you will see more and more confirmation in the headlines that the pope is departing from the fundamentals of the Christian faith. He will continue to say that heaven is open to all people whether they accept Jesus Christ as Lord or not. He will continue to reach out to Muslims even more than Pope John Paul II (who revised the Catholic Catechism to include Muslims in salvation).4 He will do this because he and the coming Muslim Antichrist will work together to influence the masses. In fact, on June 8, 2014 Pope Francis allowed Muslim prayers and readings from the Quran to be performed at the Vatican for the first time ever. That is why I believe this pope will soon perform some amazing miracles that will greatly increase his influence over the deceived people of the world. And he will convince many that the new world government and moving away from physical money to the implanted RFID chip is a good thing (Revelation 13).

The pope’s campaign to get the world to pledge allegiance to the new “man of peace” and his global government will certainly carry more weight if we have experienced a devastating nuclear war and economic collapse. Once He and the Muslim world leader gain control they will redistribute the wealth of the world to those who will go along with their plan. However, the Bible tells us that the Antichrist will break the peace treaty he negotiated with Israel in the middle of the last seven years and then later he will even turn on Rome and destroy it with fire. She (Rome) will then realize that she was used like a whore by the Antichrist and then discarded. It is easy to see why this would happen since Islam has an old grudge to settle with the Roman Catholic Church from the Crusades. And Revelation 17-18 tells us that it is God who puts it into the heart of the Beast to destroy the Great Whore of Rome. Amazingly, even some old Roman Catholic prophesies from their own people foretell this coming destruction of Rome.

What Should You Do?

As I was writing this article, a friend in Hollywood sent me a very interesting email. It contained some YouTube links with people who have been offered massive amounts of money and diplomatic immunity through the United Nations in exchange for their help in convincing the masses to go along with this one world plan. They stated that to join in they would have to take an oath and pledge loyalty to the United Nations and to certain New Age religious beliefs. This plan also includes total control over the world economy and banking system. In other words, EXACTLY what the Bible foretold in Revelation.

So, what is the answer? The only answer is to trust the God of the Bible and His Holy Word and turn to Jesus Christ for salvation from sin and eternal life in heaven. Do not take any kind of mark or implant in your hand or forehead that controls buying and selling. And do not pledge allegiance or make any oath to the new world government of the UN or any man that ends up leading that government. If you do "worship" their new government/ leader or take their mark for buying and selling, God Almighty, the Lord Jesus Christ considers that the ultimate betrayal. According to God’s Word, there is no forgiveness or escaping eternal judgment in hell if you submit to this coming Antichrist system (see Revelation 14).

Turn to the Jesus of the Bible, confess your sins and turn from them and He will forgive your sins, cleanse your heart, and make an eternal place for you in the real heaven. He is truly the ONLY way! If you haven’t already, I hope you choose a relationship with Him before it is too late. He does love you, but it is your choice who you will follow. For many of us, not denying our Savior and God Jesus Christ will cost us our lives. But at the end of that last seven year period, Jesus Christ will return and destroy both the Antichrist and the Pope who deceived the world along with all those who decided to take the mark and follow them. God help us all!

In the Lord Jesus Christ,
