This study will do a little research and study on the
"deadly wound" of the end times. This
"deadly wound" is spoken of in Revelation 13:3,
and this wound is of the political beast of the end time,
and it will be the next prophetic event of the end times.
So, let's try to understand exactly what is involved with
First of all, you must understand that there are two
beasts spoken of in the book of Revelation in the
thirteenth chapter. These beasts are the systems
that shall take over in the final days of this age of the
flesh. So to understand what this deadly wound is,
and how it applies, we must even take a close look at the
geographical locations that are involved in this event
that shall take place. However, first we must understand
that there must be two woundings.
The first beast of the end times is a political
system which must be wounded before the second beast can
take power. The second beast is the Antichrist, and
his wounding will take place when Jesus Christ returns at
the seventh trump. So lets take a look at what the
wound is, and how it applies, and what we must do to
"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, 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."
"Sea" in Revelation is symbolic of
"water", and water is symbolic of
peoples. John is saying that as he looked back from
the day of the Lord, he saw the people of the
world. This beast that rose out of the peoples of
the world, came from all the seven dominions or
continents of the world and will come from seven entities
of power and those men or entities of power will rule
over this one world system. To "blasphemy" is
to tare down the truth of God, through Jesus the
Christ. In other words, this one world system will
stand against that which we know to be true Christianity
from God's Word. It will be against the teaching of
Jesus Christ. This blasphemy will be world wide.
This particular beast that rose from this water is not a
entity/person, but it has many heads, or agencies that
will each govern their own areas. This beast
is not a monster, for God is not dealing in comic books,
but this beast is a one world political system that is a
reality today. This is strictly symbolism to help
us understand better what God is telling us about this
So this political beast will take in all seven continents
of this world for the sole purpose of blaspheming and
leading the people away from the true God.
"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."
We know from the book of Daniel that this beast was
likened to the leopard, which had spots. Moses told
us in Deuteronomy 32, that this beast's spots were not
like the spots of God's people. The "beast" as
used here, used the bear to do it's traveling and put
into effect all the things that would be done within this
political system. We know that this bear nation in the
last days to be Russia.
We read in Revelation 5:1 that it was the "Lion of
Judah", Jesus Christ, which will be the one that has
the right to open the seal.. This means that the very
Christian people that follow Jesus Christ will be the
mouth that brings this political beast into
reality. Christians will use the mobility of
Russia, but the strength of our own Christian people. If
it were not for the Christians in our land and the free
world, the Kenites, (children of Satan through Cain),
would not have their tiny nation called Israel to control
today. It was the Christians that sponsored it into
establishment back in May 15, 1948. It was also the
Christian nations that protected it when the rest of the
world wanted to dismantle Israel out of existence.
Of course the "dragon" is the role that Satan
will play in the end times, as the Antichrist. The
Antichrist's presence will be so strong to Christians
that they will gladly allow this one world system to take
complete control. The time of crying "peace peace
peace" has gone all the way back to the second world
war, and all the time that they cry "peace"
there is no peace. The earth is covered with all kinds of
local wars between neighboring nations.
There shall not be peace within the world until Jesus
Christ returns at the seventh trumpet and all evil is
done away with.
