The last time the US had a visit from the Papacy was when Pope Benedict visited with the Bush administration in April of 2008,1 just a little over 7 years ago.
What should true followers of Jesus, the Christ (Yeshua Ha-Mashiach) be mindful of when the Pope makes a visit to Washington, D.C. Should we be asking the question: “What are the implications of the Pope’s visit to Washington, D.C., in relation to the members of the church, the Body of Christ?”
Those true followers of Yeshua-Jesus understand that the Papacy is the Biblical, historic, and prophetic anti-Christ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, Paul the Apostle, and John the revelator. We understand that the little horn of Daniel, the man of sin, son of perdition, and lawless one of Paul, and the Woman who rides the Beast, the Mother of Harlots and abominations of the earth written of by John in the Book of Revelation is the Papacy of the Roman Catholic Church.
Therefore, we take note of actions and maneuverings of the anti-Christ as he goes about the earth, having the whole world wonder after in awe. (Rev 13:3)
If we look at chapter 13 of Revelation, the Scriptures reveal to us the larger global and historical dynamic of the anti-Christ-Beast system. Within these few verses, a foreboding and chilling revelation emerges, bringing us to attention and readiness upon the watchman’s wall.
Starting with the first verse, Revelation 13:1, we understand that this ‘beast’ rises up in history and is identified as one who is blasphemous. That upon his heads, his seats of authority, he blasphemes the truth with lies and deceptions, even declaring himself to be ‘God on earth.’
ANOTHER BEAST (Exposing the meaning of Trilateral Commission)
— 1st BEAST (Vatican/RCC/Papacy)
Rev_13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea [sea of humanity (populated Europe)], and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Rev_13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
The Bible tells us what the ‘sea’ is symbolic of in Revelation 17:15, “And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” The first beast out of the sea is humanitarian in nature, the people of the earth and the social and governmental systems influenced by their ideologies, politics, and religion. In other words, SPIRITUAL or INTELLECTUAL or as sea is of water, fluid in nature, as a spirit is “fluid.”
— 2nd BEAST(US Political and Military might based in Washington, D.C. and Fiat London, or ‘fake’ currency system)
There are those who disagree with me about the beast from the earth and the two horns like a lamb being the controlling powers of England and the United States. Some suggest that this second beast is the militaristic priesthood of the Roman Catholic false church, the Society of Jesus, more commonly known as the Jesuits. But since the horns spoken of by Daniel have always represented a nation or independent state such as Vatican City or the Papal state, it seems more in line with previous nations or countries described as horns such as the ten Germanic nations of Europe under the control of Rome who are the ten horns of the beast, of which the little horn, the Papacy/RCC grew out of.
Considering this, why would these two later horns, described as ‘horns like a lamb’ shift symbolism in the course of Biblical events? And the characteristic of being ‘like a lamb’ is symbolic of these two nations that were essentially, non-Roman Catholic and Protestant for the most part; more Christ-like or lamb-like.
As for the Jesuits, since they are Roman Catholic, serve the Papacy, now even controlling the Papal chair, the Vatican, and the Roman Catholic ‘agency,’ and the world at large, they simply cannot be removed from the first horn, the little horn, the beast that came up from the sea. They hold the reins of global governments and military, including the US/western political/military industrial complex. They are the rider pulling the reins, the ‘woman who rides the beast.’
Rev_13:11 And I beheld ANOTHER [caps my emphasis] beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, [two powers that pretended peace] and he spake as a dragon [but in truth made war].
Rev_13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
Rev_13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
Rev_13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Rev_13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number 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.
As the Bible reveals to us what the ‘sea’ is symbolic of with the first beast, it also reveals to what the ‘earth’ is in regard to the second beast. As opposed to the spiritual or fluid nature of the sea and water, the earth represent the materialist, tangible, and organic things; things that are earthy or carnal. “The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven. 48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. – 1 Corinthians 15:47-48.”
The 2nd beast out of the earth is very materialistic and carnal in nature. The focus is on money, merchandise, and power. Money to indulge in the excesses of luxury as well as those tangible things money can acquire to control people such as weapons of war. So this second beast is described as coming up out of the earth, being ‘earthy’ and materialistic.
The image of a man in the Book of Daniel envisioned by Nebuchadnezzar in his dream is symbolic of the empires with the last empire having feet of iron and clay. Iron representing tangible and material things, things out of the earth, while clay represents things intellectual, ideological, and spiritual, or things out of the sea (water).
This empire symbolized by the feet of iron and clay is the last empire, the revived Roman empire of the Beast system controlled by the Vatican/London/Wash. D.C. ‘TRILATERAL’ UNION.
Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed [he was revived]: and all the world wondered after the beast.
What will the second beast do in sight of the first beast? What will the Washington, D.C. war machine do in the presence of the Pope?
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; – Revelation 13:14a
