  • 1. THE THREE ANGELS’ MESSAGES 10. REVELATION’S FIRST BEAST
  • 2. THE THIRD ANGEL’S WARNING MESSAGE REVELATION 14:9-11 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever deceiveth the mark of his name.
  • 3. BIBLE’S DESCRIPTION: ANTICHRIST  Who is the First Beast of REVELATION 14:9-11?  How do we know whether we are worshipping the first Beast or not? 3. 2 THESSALONIANS 2:3-10 [The Man of Sin] 4. DANIEL 7:3-25 [The Little Horn] 5. REVELATION 13:1-10 [The First Beast] 6. REVELATION 17: [Mother of Harlots=The Man of Sin=The Little Horn=The First Beast] 7.

  • 5. A CLOSER: UNCLEAN SPIRITS REVELATION 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

The Division & Departure REVELATION 16:13, 14 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, [which] go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
  • 7. 2. THE DEFEAT REVELATION 16:17, 19 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell:… 3. THE DESTRUCTION REVELATION 16:19 And the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
  • 8. THE LITTLE HORN AMONG THE TEN HORNS REVELATION 12:1-4 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 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. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
  • 9. QUESTIONS THAT NEED ANSWERS Who’s this child…? Was this child born during the reign of this Roman Empire? REVELATION 13:1, 2 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. 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.
  • 10. COMPARE: REVELATION 13 & DANIEL 7 REVELATION 13:1, 2 DANIEL 7  Dragon  Lion  Leopard  Bear  Bear  Leopard  Lion  Dragon Notice: The order…why? Notice: The order…why?
  • 11. CONNECTING ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS  Who was the Little Horn of DANIEL 7?  Who is the child that the dragon had planned on devouring?  Was this child born during the reign of this pagan empire? “Yes” 168BC TO 476 AD  Rome: Dragon Beast  The Dragon: Civil power of the Roman Empire  Pagan Rome: Jesus
  • 12. IDENTIFYING THE LITTLE HORN: REVELATION’S FIRST BEAST DANIEL 7:23, 24 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom [are] ten kings [that] shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
  • 13. HOW MANY STAGES DOES ROME HAVE? • Rome: Empire [Fourth Kingdom] • Rome: Ten kingdoms [Ten Horns] 9. Rome: Little Horn [Papal Rome]
  • 14. HOW LONG WOULD THE LITTLE HORN’S DOMINION LAST? DANIEL 7:25 And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. His Dominion: Time, Times, and ½ of Time. 4. Time= one year 5. Times= two years 6. ½ of Time= half of a year
  • 15. BIBLE EXPLANATION: YEAR/DAY…? • Ten kingdoms were complete in 476 A. D.; if the little horn ruled until the judgment (in 1844), then the three and one half times of dominion of the little horn must be 1260 years, and not literal days. If the days were literal, then the little horn would have ruled only from 476-479 A. D. • GENESIS 5:5 [Days Adam lived were 930 years] • GENESIS 6:3: [Days are linked with years.] [His days shall be years.] 4. The Papacy did indeed rule for 1260 years, during which the true church had to flee during that period. 538-1798 A.D=1260 years.
  • 16. EXAMINING, UNDERSTANDING, ESTABLISHING, AND COMPUTING…  The Jewish Calendar: 12 months [year]  Each months: 30 days EZEKIEL 4:6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.
  • 17. REVELATION 11:2, 3 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty [and] two months. And I will give [power] unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
  • 18. 1260 DAYS=YEARS=42 MONTHS REVELATION 12:6, 14 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
  • 19. DANIEL 7 AND REVELATION 13:5 ARE PARALLELS  Each biblical month has: 30 days  Each biblical year has: 12 months or 360 days  30*12 = 360 days  42 months * 30days = 1260 years  Time=1 year + Times=2 years + ½ Time= 6 months=(42 months/1260years)
  • 20. WHAT TOOK PLACE AFTER 1260 YEARS? REVELATION 13:9, 10 If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.  General Berthier captures, arrests, and curtails Rome’s [Papal Rome] authority to govern in the year 1798  What is the meaning of the sword?
  • 21. ROMANS 13:4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to [execute] wrath upon him that doeth evil. REVELATION 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
  • 22. WHO WAS WOUNDED WITH/BY THE SWORD? DANIEL 7:26, 27 But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy [it] unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.
  • 23. ZEROING ON REVELATION’S FIRST BEAST  How many nations have arise shortly after 476 A.D.?  How many have ruled for 1260 years?  How many have been held captive by the sword?  How many will have had a resurrection making the entire world wonder after the beast?  How many a power will exist until Jesus comes?  Can the antichrist be a person?  Could this power or system have ruled for a millennia?  Where is the epicentre of this first beast power based and commandeered?
  • 24. LOCATION: FIRST BEAST DANIEL 7:2, 3 …The four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. ISAIAH 17:12 Woe to the multitude of many people, [which] make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, [that] make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters! DANIEL 7:8 I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn [were] eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
  • 25. REVELATION 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.
  • 26. BEHAVIOURAL PATTERN: FIRST BEAST DANIEL 7:25 And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. REVELATION 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. JOHN 10:33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
  • 27. REVELATION’S FIRST BEAST SPEAKS BLASPHEMIES MARK 2:7 Why doth this [man] thus speak blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God only?
  • 28. FIRST BEAST BLASPHEMES AGAINST GOD DANIEL 7:21 I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them... REVELATION 13:5, 6 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
  • 29. SUMMARY OF BLASPHEMIES: FIRST BEAST  First Beast claims to be God  First Beast claims to forgive sins  First Beast makes war against the Saints of God  First Beast claims to change Times and Laws Notice: The Roman Catholic System has changed God’s prophetic calendar.
  • 30. VALUES: NON-NEGOTIABLE--EVEN IN THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT “The protection of a work-free Sunday as an essential pillar of the European Social Model and a part of the European cultural heritage.” The declaration shows just how, despite much tolerance for diversity, everything is still not possible. The document, which must be ratified by gaining a majority of MEP’s signatures by May of this year, states in part that “. . . the European institutions, bodies and agencies have not worked on Sundays since their creation and do not intend to do so in the future, despite the diversity of religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds of EU officials and decision-makers . . .” Written Declaration 0009/2009, recently presented to the body (Feb 02, 2009)
  • 31. QUOTES: CATHOLIC SOURCES “We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty.” The Great Encyclical Letters of Pope Leo XIII page 304. Benziger Bros., New York “Prompta Bibliotheca” “The pope is of so great authority and power that he can modify, explain, or interpret even divine laws. The pope can modify divine laws, since his power is not of man but of God, and he acts as vicegerent of God upon earth with most ample power of binding and loosing [the plain inference is that this is done by modifying divine law] his sheep.”
  • 32. ELLEN WHITE, EDUCATION, p. 101 “. . . even the child, as he comes in contact with nature, will see cause for perplexity. He cannot but recognize the working of antagonistic forces. It is here that nature needs an interpreter. Looking upon the evil manifest even in the natural world, all have the same sorrowful lesson to learn--"An enemy hath done this." Matthew 13:28.”
  • 33. Catholic Mirror, of Baltimore, Maryland, September 23, 1893: “The Catholic Church for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant, by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday. …The Christian Sabbath is therefore to this day the acknowledged offspring of the Catholic Church as spouse of the Holy Ghost, without a word of remonstrance from the Protestant world.” “Who gave you authority to tamper with the fourth?” Library of Christian Doctrine; Why Don't You Keep Holy the Sabbath Day pages 3, 4.
  • 34.

  • 35. UNION OF CHURCH AND STATE: A STUNNING PRECEDENT Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul [Time Magazine: The Holy Alliance] A checklist: REVELATION 13:11-18  Does the first beast and his image become buddies?  Does the papacy arise from Europe?  Does the papacy govern from Europe?  Is his seat in Rome [Vatican]?  Does the Roman Catholic system in its writings claim that the Pope is Christ on earth?  Does the Roman Catholic system have a history stained in blood?  Through the inquisition, did this church wear out and persecute the people of God?
  • 36. THREE METHODS OF PROPHETIC INTERPRETATION Did the Papacy try to change God’s Law [Prophetic Calendar]? Two: Alcazar & Rebeira  Alcazar: Preterism: Bible prophecy [Antichrist] is fulfilled in the past  Rebeira: Antipas Epiphanies [Futurism]: someone will arise out of the Middle East  Adventist: Historicist: History/Church/Little Horn
  • 37. ROMAN CATHOLIC SYSTEM CHANGED GOD’S PROPHETIC CALENDAR 1. The time: Antichrist will arise 2. The place: Antichrist will arise out of 3. The system: Bible identifies as the Apostate Church  Who change God’s Law? ACTS 10:25, 26 And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped [him]. But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.
  • 38. ONLY GOD IS SUPREME: EARTH  Who on earth have power to forgive sins?  Who on earth have power to change God’s Law?  Who on earth is infallible in faith and morals?  Who on earth is able to set up and take down kings?  Any system which claims it does these things is committing Blasphemy against God.
  • 39. FIRST BEAST: NAME & NUMBER? REVELATION 13:1, 16-18 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. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 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. …It is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.
  • 40. LANGUAGE: FIRST BEAST…? Long ago…[numbers were written with letters] In Greek: [Alpha & Omega] Roman poets used Six Letters of the alphabet to write all the numbers know as: “Roman Numerals” LATIN V= 5 F= 0 D= 500 I= 1 I= 1 E= 0 C= 100 L= 50 I= 1 A= 0 I= 1 R= 0 I= 1 I= 1 U= 5 S= 0 112 + 53 + 501= 666
  • 41. HIS NAME AND NUMBER VALUE Note: In the original Roman System, the “M” did not exist. Whenever they wrote 1000, they would write it as “DD”. The beast has a name whose number value is 666 The Pope’s Official Latin Title: VICARIUS FILII DEI SUBSTITUTE SON GOD REPLACEMENT REPRESENTATIVE The word “Antichrist” does not necessarily mean one who is against Christ. Rather, one who seeks to occupy the place of Christ, thereby going against Christ himself.
  • 42. REVELATION 18:4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. No doubt... this passage refers to: The Roman Catholic [Apostate System]
