The Scarlet Beast identifies which earthly empire would control the Holy Land from the time of David to the present.
The Scarlet BeastRevelation 17:16 “And there came one of the seven angelswhich had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying untome, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of thegreat whore (In the Old Testament, apostasy is alwaysdescribed as harlotry, so this woman is the apostate Church)that sitteth upon many waters (many people Rev 17:15):With whom the kings of the earth have committedfornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been madedrunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried meaway in the spirit (figurative signpost) into the wilderness(the Gentile nations): and I saw a woman sit upon a scarletcoloured beast (compare with red dragon of Rev:12:3, so thisbeast is Satan), full of names of blasphemy, having sevenheads and ten horns. And the woman was . . .
Revelation 17:1‐6 Continued . . . arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus (millions of saints killed by the Roman Church during the Middle Ages): and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:713 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit (Satan was cast into the bottomless pit, so this is Satan), and go into perdition: and they
Revelation 17:7‐13 Continued . . . that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was(in control of the world before John’s time), and is not (in control of the world during John’s time), and yet is (continues to tempt mankind). And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space (i.e., longer than the other “kings”). And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of (from, out of or composed of) the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”
To understand this prophecy, we must stand in the time of the prophet. This prophecy was given to John in 95 to105AD, so Rome was the kingdom “that is.” The “five fallen” are kingdoms that had dominion over the Holy Land before John. Kingdoms seven and eight have dominion over the Holy Land after John.
Beast 1 = Israel Beast 2 = Assyria Beast 3 = Lion = Babylon, now Iraq Beast 4 = Bear = Medo‐Persia, now Iran Beast 5 = Leopard = Greece, now Syria Since Rome is the 6th Beast,the 7th Beast is the Islamic powers that controlled the Holy Land from 688AD to 1948AD! . . . just as we can prove from history!
The Beast That Was and Is NotRevelation 17:8 “The beast that thousawest was, and is not; and shallascend out of the bottomless pit,and go into perdition . . . and theyshall wonder when they behold thebeast that was, and is not, and yetis.”
The 10 Horns of the Scarlet BeastRevelation 17:11 “And the beast that was, and is not, even he is theeighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.”Revelation 17:12 “And the ten horns which thou sawest are tenkings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receivepower as kings (no crowns, so these are not ordinary rulers ofnations or kingdoms) one hour with the beast.”Revelation 17:13 “These have one mind, and shall give their powerand strength unto the beast.”Revelation 17:14 “These shall make war with the Lamb, and theLamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King ofkings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, andfaithful.”
Beast With Two HornsRevelation 13:1318 “And he [TwoHorns] doeth greatwonders, so that he maketh fire come down fromheaven on the earth in the sight of men, And he [TwoHorns] deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by themeans of those miracles which he had power to do inthe sight of the [LeopardBearLion] beast; saying tothem that dwell on the earth, that they should makean image to the [LBL] beast, which had the wound bya sword, and did live. And he [TwoHorns] had powerto give life unto the image of the [LBL] beast, that theimage of the [LBL] beast should both speak, andcause that as many as would not . . .
Revelation 13:13‐18, Continued. . . . worship the image of the [LBL] beast should be killed. And he [LBL] 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 [LBL] beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the [LeopardBearLion] beast: for it is the number of a man [Muhammad]; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”
Direct quote from www.quran66619.org In the Name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful 666 ( The QURAN ) At the very beginning of the Last Millennium in Human history, by GOD`s will, I did count the Letter Qaf which is the first letter of the Quran.After research, I witnessed the number 666 (Sura 11:17) and witnessedthe awesome Message ;"ALLAH, Lailaheillallah" , (66 , 165) , "GOD, There is no other Godbeside GOD"
Quote from www.quran66619.org, Continued ... The number 666 is highly publicized all over the world and it is associated with evil and danger. However, it is not what it seems. It was a Satanic trick. The trick was to prevent the people approaching the 666. Satan knew that the 666 is the book of GOD and the people should be kept away from it. According to his plan, he placed a bad image to the number 666.
Revelation was written 500 years before Muhammad was born and some Moslems tell us the Koran is 666! Revelation 13 figuratively describes a great evil coming upon the Earth and a “he” whose number will be 666.From context and history we now know that “he” to be the false prophet Muhammad.
