The Deadly Wound


Part 1


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 this wound.

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 apply it?

Rev 13:1
"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 political beast.

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.

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."

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.
