AND I BEHELD A BEAST RISING OUT OF THE EARTH
TWO HORNS LIKE A LAMB
The separation of Church and state and the rights of the individual to worship or not to worship God in the manner in which they choose enshrined in the United States constitution.
AND HE SPAKE LIKE A DRAGON
The freemason secret society infiltrated by the papacy through the Jesuit order in turn infiltrates protestantism bonding protestant and Catholic alike to fremasonary by means of business advantage and brotherhood. It quickly infects both the American governmental and protestant church hierarchies causing them to err from their lamb like principles and begin to adopt dragon like principles.
Revelation 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him
What or who is the two-horned beast? Beasts are governments as we find in Daniel. The horns of this beast, what are they? There is an example in the book of Daniel. http://sabbathsermons.com/2009/08/31/an-image-to-the-beast/
In prophecy a beast is symbolic of an earthly government. In Revelation 13 there are two beasts. The first beast described in Revelation 13:1-10 is the government of Papal Rome and with her the governments of Christendom that did her bidding. The second beast described in Revelation 13:11-18 is another earthly government which we aim to identify. To understand when this second beast should appear, we must date the verse previous to its appearance. “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword”
(Revelation 13:10). This verse was fulfilled when the Pope was led into captivity by the French Army in 1798. John now beholds another beast coming up out the earth. For the specifications of prophecy to be fulfilled another earthly government must come into existence by 1798. http://sabbathsermons.com/2009/08/31/the-two-horned-beast/
Revelation 12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
This is a figure of another political power. This is pagan Rome during the time of the emperors and it was the Roman emperors or a figure of the dragon. They were the ones who gave the pope political power also the seat or the capital Rome from where the pope ruled. The beast represents the papacy.
Just at the time the papal beast was lead into captivity, John beheld another beast coming up out of the earth. This other beast was responsible for the deadly wound being healed as he causes all the world to worship him. Therefore his deadly wound was healed again. This other beast arises out of the earth and does all the kind of things that the papal beast was doing before. This empire is able to restore the life of the head (papacy). Let us investigate very clearly what was this beast. What was a world power that was arising in 1798? Here is the documentation regarding the rise of this power. http://sabbathsermons.com/2009/08/30/3-united-states-of-americas-role-in-prophecy/
The Scripture says a harlot is a deep pit and anyone that falls in it will not escape, it is tragedy. As he was making this beast and adding this woman, he thought how can I get these killing machines to have a feminine touch to seduce? Where can I get a woman from?
Isaiah 1:21 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers.
1:22 Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:
1:23 Thy princes [are] rebellious, and companions of thieves: every one loveth gifts, and followeth after rewards: they judge not the fatherless, neither doth the cause of the widow come unto them.
Where can I get a woman from? I’m going to get that woman and I’m going to take her and pollute her and make her the harlot because the seed of the woman was to carry on the purity because the dragon was wrath with the woman but went to make war with the remnant of her seed. Ecclesiastical history of the seven churches describes how Satan got his masterpiece of a killing machine and put a woman on top of it. Note the process involved in how Satan used her to seduce the people of God. http://sabbathsermons.com/2011/01/08/10-the-little-horn-and-its-wound/
