Someone, who is a holy seeker and loving enquirer contacted me and requested that I should explain the meaning of the images in my last post. I feel it will be beneficial to other readers to share my response to him on this platform.
If I have to explain the prophecy of the images, I will write a voluminous book. However, I will try to give you a summary of what the seven-headed beast and the Mother of harlots sitting on the beast.
This beast represents the powers that have been controlling the human kingdoms, beginning from the first world empire to the seventh one and finally the combination of the seven powers to form the eighth and last One World government to be headed by the Antichrist (The Beast).
The Lord Jesus Christ at His second coming will destroy the powers behind human kingdoms and establish His Own Kingdom of Righteousness and Peace (The Millennium Reign of Christ).
Read Revelation 17:1-18 prayerfully before you continue.
The seven-headed beast in the above scripture represents the powers that have been controlling the human kingdoms, beginning from the first world empire to the seventh one. Finally, combinations of these seven powers will form the eighth and last One World government under the leadership of the Antichrist (The Beast).
The Lord Jesus Christ, at His second coming, will destroy the powers behind human kingdoms and establish His Own Kingdom of Righteousness and Peace (The Millennium Reign of Christ).
The seven heads of the beast represent the seven human kingdoms (empires), out of which five have reigned and gone, and the sixth was reigning as at the time Apostle John received and wrote his revelations. The seventh one was an extension or transformation of the sixth one, which didn’t last long (as prophesied in verse 10b) before it became fragmented into subkingdoms. The beast itself is a combination of the seven spirits of the Antichrist that controlled each of the seven kingdoms. These seven spirits will unite to form the eighth kingdom, which is the last, the One World government of the Antichrist (The Beast with the number “666”).
The ten horns on the seven heads of the beast represent a combination of World Powers (subkingdoms) who will agree to surrender their authority to the Antichrist. These ten World Powers were depicted as ten toes of iron and clay in Nebuchadnezzar’s vision of metallic image (Daniel 2:31-45). They will be made up of ten Capitalist countries (iron) and ten Communist countries (clay).
The seven kingdoms include:
1. Egyptian Empire
2. Assyrian Empire
3. Babylon Empire
4. Medo-Persian Empire
5. Grecian Empire
6. Roman Empire
7. Papal Roman Empire (Religion & State)
Currently, the seven human kingdoms have come and gone, and the eighth one, which is the Antichrist government, is building up already and about to rise. The Papacy is at the center of this buildup in the name of world peace, advocating for one world religion.
The woman riding on the head of the seven-headed beast is called Mystery, Babylon the great, the mother of harlots and abominations of the earth. This woman is called Mystery because she is the opposite of what the multitudes of people upon whom she sits, believed her to be. She’s indeed a Wolf in sheep’s clothing. She claims to be for Christ in public, but she’s indeed antichristian secretly. She claims to be a saint but treats the real saints as heretics and later idolizes them as saints. Revelation 17:6 says she’s drunken with the blood of the saints and the blood of martyrs of Jesus.
This woman is a city and a religious system that has had much influence over various world governments, from the Roman Empire to the present world government. She is a religious organization with political power, operates like a country within a country, and has maintained diplomatic missions in many countries around the world like a normal sovereign state. She possesses both religious and political power, and there is no region of the world where her presence is not registered. Her foundations are from the ancient false religion, and she has given birth to many other false religions through which she has continued to drink the blood of the saints while camouflaging herself as a Christian religious organization. The head of this religious organization is regarded as the foremost world religious leader, and he’s currently at the forefront of efforts to unite all world religions into one world religion. He has signed a series of agreements with leaders of major world religions.
On September 15th, 2022, world religious leaders adopted the Human Fraternity Document prepared by his religious organization (Mystery Babylon) at the 7th Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan. Follow the link below for more information about the event:
The True Church Must Wake Up Now Before It’s Too Late (Concluding Part)
The formation of the last world government (the seven-headed Beast and the Ten horns) is ongoing. The signing of the Human Fraternity Document by World Religious Leaders is a crucial step in that direction.
The purpose of sharing this truth is not just for knowledge’s sake but for us to be wise and know that the end of human government is approaching. The Antichrist is about to take over the world government as the world enters a period of great tribulation.
The Rapture of the saints is “nearer than when we believed” – Romans 13:11-14.
Are you ready to go with Christ? Be prepared – Hebrews 9:28.
