REVELATION 13 AND AMERICA GREAT BABYLON
by Ella Rose Mast
As I have told you before, each chapter of Revelation is just a part of the story, which is mostly in symbolism. In this chapter, first we find history like you find in the book of Daniel for instance. It tells of different powers which would arise in the earth, wherein ancient Israel dwelt.
"And I (John) stood upon the sands of the sea, and saw a beast (world power) rise up out of the sea (people), having seven heads and 10 horns, and upon his horns 10 crowns, and upon his head the name of Blaspheme. And this power which I saw was like unto a leopard and his feet were of the feet of a bear, and his mouth like unto the mouth of a lion, and the Dragon (devil) gave him his power, and his seat, and his authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded unto death, and then his deadly wound was healed and all the world then wandered after the beast (world order) ruled by the devil.”
Dr. Swift lined out this history for us as being the powers of 1 Assyria, 2 Egypt, 3 Babylon, 4 Medes, and Persians, 5 Greeks, 6 Rome, (at the time of Christ), 7 Genghis Kahn the Mongol thrown at the Christian west, and then number 8 was Communism.
These were earthly powers or civilizations that rose in various places, and times. These were mostly started by the Aryans, but would then be taken over by the work of the Devil.
Then we are thus told that one of his heads as it were was wounded to death, but his deadly wound was healed. This was referring to the death of Genghis Khan, the Mongol leader who with his hoards had been thrown at the Christian West of Europe at the time of the Adamic migrations.
But it was the power of the Jews of Vienna who had gone to the Mongols and paid them to come west. The Jews then opened the gates of the fortified cities and wore yellow arm bands for identity and then pointed out their homes so they were not molested.
Then Genghis Khan the great leader was wounded and finally he died and was taken back to his home base for burial. This attack on the west was done to try to stop this westward movement of the Children of the Kingdom --the Israelites of the Old Testament.
The rest of Genghis Khan's men kept coming for some years after his death. And finally one of them took over a headquarters in Russia. And then in time, Russia would become the Soviet Union under Communism.
Verse 5: "And they (the people of the world order) worshiped the Dragon who gave power to the Beast (the world order). And they then said, ‘Who is like unto the Beast (this great world order)? Who is able to make war with him? (With whom? The leader of this One World government that is controlled by the Devil. But on the other hand the one who can handle the devil is YAHWEH-YAHSHUA, Himself.)”
Verse 5: "But there was given to him (the devil, or dragon) a mouth speaking great things, and even blasphemies. And power was give unto him to continue 42 months.”
Now let’s analyze that for today. For the voice for the world order is the television. And Mark 2:7 says, ‘Why does this man (the ruler over the world order) speak Blaspheme's? Who can forgive sins?---Only God.’
Here in scripture, we would look for a double meaning. We know that as old Babylon fell it was that old world order. And when it fell, altho destroyed in its birthplace, still there was a stump, or a bit of life left with which to move on. And some of those of old Babylon came back to Jerusalem as those of the Judah kingdom came back to rebuild, and be in place for the Birth of YAHSHUA--Jesus the Christ. And more than that, some of them always moved with the Israelites as they migrated. Even today we find that our nation has also followed the Dragon as we give up our inheritance to those who rule over our nation to a great extent, at least on a national order. Gave it to people who do not believe in our Savior.
Now --Mr. Clinton is our 42nd president, and he had ruled two years and six months before the time of his confession on the 17th of August, that he had lied to the American people about the Monica affair. If he stays in August until next July, he will have stayed there three years and six months.
Today we are the nation that much of the world, especially the Muslim world, call the Great Satan or Great Babylon. This is because we have always as a nation stuck up for the Jews and little Israeli, that little abortive state, and denied our heritage.
That being the case, then we come to this time here at the end of the age when Great Babylon falls. Remember then the oath that the President took---ending with SO HELP ME GOD! If you will study the facts, you will find that perjury is LYING TO THE PEOPLE. It is also the basis for "High Crimes and Misdemeanors,” the basis for Impeachment. So has our President opened his mouth in Blaspheme against his oath of office, against God's Tabernacle, His dwelling place, and that of His children of the kingdom who dwell here, as well as those who dwell in heaven?
The T.V. has given the President his outlet for his voice to be heard as you see him speak.
Verse 7: "He makes war with the Saints and tries to overcome them, and power was given to him (the devil) OVER ALL KINDRED, AND TONGUES AND NATIONS."
We find that today the U.S. is the only super power in the World Order, thus considered by many as modern Great Babylon. Thus our President thinks he and his power group can control the world. This has caused much of the world to hate us as a nation.
Verse 8: (notice this) "All that dwell upon the earth shall worship him. (The devil). All OF THOSE WHOSE NAMES ARE NOT WRITTEN IN THE LAMB'S BOOK OF LIFE.”
Thus the children of the kingdom do not worship the devil, but they have been misled for some time.
"IF ANY MAN HAVE AN EAR LET HIM HEAR"
Verse 9: (Here is judgment.) "He that headeth into captivity shall go into captivity. And he that killeth with the sword, must be killed by the sword."
This is a two-edged sword. For Christ is said to be HE who kills by the sword out of his mouth (His word). ‘Here then is the patience of the saints.’ In other words you must have patience until this prophecy is played out. For you cannot change it by getting ahead of HIM. You can only cause yourself more trouble. With verse 11, we go back to pick up history.
Verse 11: "And I beheld another beast (world order) coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a Dragon. And he experienced all of the power of the first beast before him. And he causeth those of the earth, and those who dwell here to worship the first beast whose deadly wound was healed."
Here you have just been told that altho Genghis Khan died, still the power of Jewry which set him in place was still there. And thus we see that Communism then became this 8th beast or World order. And in these final days it is still there. And to a certain extent rules. For it governs the thoughts of this final One World Order that the enemy has been trying to set in place.
Verse 13: (That is America's number.) "And he (could this be the ruler in America?), this beast or now Great Babylon does great wonders so that he maketh fire come down out of the heavens (the sky) in the sight of men.” (Did you watch the pictures of the Cruise missiles striking in Africa and Afghanistan as, supposedly, America struck back?)
Verse 14: "And deceived them that dwell on the earth by means of these miracles which he had power to use in the sight of the Beast (the world order) saying to them who, who dwell upon the earth that they should make an image to the beast which had the wound by a sword and did live."
Now according to the Companion Bible, miracles of themselves are no proof of a divine mission. The Almighty's miracles are signs given for the people to ponder. These miracles spoken of here are just to impress credulous unbelievers.
You are sent to the appendix of 104-9-1, of the Companion Bible, and it says: ‘It springs from and answers to the question of where.’ ---Then sends you to Matthew 9:2. And here it tells you, -- ‘Behold! Certain of the scribes said among themselves---THIS MAN BLASPHEMETH.’
Then the next it sends you to Matthew 10:27 which says, ‘What I tell you in the darkness speak ye in light. And what ye hear in the ear then preach ye upon the mountain top.’
Then turn to John 6:2, ‘And a great multitude followed after him because they saw his miracles which he did on those who were deceased.’ Thus you see the differences in miracles, for this last was when Jesus was performing them.
We are also given further references so that you will better understand the difference between the two seed lines.
Matthew 28:14, here we find Mary coming to the tomb after the Sabbath was over. And she finds that HE--YAHSHUA--IS RISEN.
Mark 13:3---This was the time when Jesus and the disciples were on the Mount of Olives talking about the destruction of the temple to come.
Acts 24:19---Paul was being tried, and there was no one there to be against him. This was in the time of the Disciples going out after they received the power of the Holy spirit. Thus as the date of those things then started with the events that led up to the crucifixion.
And after looking backward, then look forward and upward---like in Matthew 1:11, which is also in the time frame of the carrying away of the last of the Judah kingdom to Babylon.
Then turn to Hebrews 1:2--for the picture of the happenings in the last days. ‘YAHWEH who hath spoken in the past unto the fathers (leaders in Israel) hath in these last days spoken unto us by his son (embodiment) whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the world.’ Here your references denote dignity and power.
And then in Matthew 23:2, we find that now the scribes and pharisees sit in Moses' seat. Thus the enemy now moves in to take control over the Israelites, the children of God's kingdom.
Acts 12:21, "And upon a certain day, Herod arrayed in royal apparel sat upon his throne and made an oration to them.” But Romans 9:5, "not as tho the word of God hath taken none effect." ------- "FOR THEY ARE NOT ALL Israel which are of Israel (or of this nation).”
The appendix of the Companion Bible is very extensive so as to help you to understand. And next it refers you to Revelation 2:26, "He that overcometh and keepeth my words unto the end, to him will I give My power over the nation.”
Thus you see who has the greatest power that we should look up to.
Revelation 2:26---To the Church age of Ephesus ---There they are already in this age holding to the doctrine of the Nicolattans, which the Almighty said he hated. Already they are deserting the Gospel as delivered to them by the Disciples and strange doctrines were creeping into the Church, into the Faith. "And then power is given unto the image of the beast (world order) to speak and cause as many as would not worship this end time Babylon--world order, that they should be killed.” The appendix here is referring to angels and spirit beings as in Acts 8:29----the Holy Spirit. For here Phillip is to approach the carriage that carries the Eunuch from Ethiopia who was reading, or trying to read the scriptures by Isaiah, as he rode along.
Next see Hebrew 1:7-14 and then Mark 7:25-26. and here you are talking about evil spirits.
Verse l6:---This second beast---now Great Babylon---for the end of the age, "Causes both small and great, to receive a mark in their right hand or in their forehead."
Verse 17:---"For no man might buy or sell, save he that hath the mark or the name of the beast (world order) or the number of His name.”
The appendix here refers you to number 105:2---saying that this is a conditional feeling, and refers you to John 3:18 --"He that believeth on HIM is not condemned. But he that believeth not is condemned already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten son of God.” Thus those who do not believe in the name of YAHSHUA--Jesus the Christ, are condemned already. We ask you to see how many have been appointed or even elected to our government today who do not believe in Jesus the Christ.
Verse 17: And that now no man can buy or sell save he that hath this mark or the name of the beast (the World order), or the number of his name which is 666.
Now we believe that this building up of the President that we see them trying to do today, is actually an attempt to boycott the Resurrection. This is also the message from the Companion Bible. To destroy all the meaning of the resurrection.
Verse 18:---Thus "here is wisdom----let him that hath understanding count the number of the Beast (the world order and he who rules it) for his number is also the number of a man, and it is 666."
So what is Wisdom?--According to the appendix, then it means to know by experience, or effort to acquire knowledge, to come or get to know, or learn to PERCEIVE. This then sends you to John 1:48, and this is what you are to perceive, for Nathaniel is talking to Jesus and he asked Jesus, “When did you know me?" And Jesus replied, "When you were under the tree (of life) I saw you."
Then turn to I John 5:20, ---And we (the disciples) know that the Son of God (YAHWEH'S EMBODIMENT AS YAHSHUA) is come and has given us an understanding that we may know HIM, that is TRUE. And we are in HIM and even in his son (His embodiment as YAHSHUA --or Jesus the Christ.)
Then turn to Ephesians 5:5---For this we know that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ, and of YAHWEH (God).
Thus in Revelation 13, ---this number 666, is the number of a man. And when the name of the Beast (World order) ---or the Anti Christ is known, it will be doubtless recognized by this computation of 666. This is formed from this old symbol SSS in the ancient mysteries. Thus, the modern beliefs are becoming closely allied with the spread of spiritualism, theosophy and occultism of every kind. Some of the ancient authorities read this number 666 as 616 as used by the old Hebrews in their worship of their King.
Thus wisdom is then in the numbering of the king of the Hebrews for HIS number is 8, and 16 is thus two 8's. This number 888 is his number in Glory. And here at the end of the age we knowing that he came into earth--then he could have the number of earth as 616. Therefore we are not at the end of the age and this fight is still between the children of the kingdom and the Antichrist. So how would you worship in earth then in spiritualism, theosophy and occultism of every kind when you now know that he came into earth not in his Glory (888), but as a man who walked the earth (616), and yet was YAHWEH in the flesh?)
According to the Companion Bible appendix it seems that the understanding of today is getting closer and closer to the truth. For remember that the mysteries of the Kingdom were not give to any other people. So do not expect them to have the whole story. They are only reaching for it in their misquoted way.
Now you know the world order today is saying that America is Great Babylon. I have this book entitled "America --The Babylon," saying America's destiny is foretold in Biblical prophecy by R. A. Coombs. As I read this book, I have to say that I agree that our UNSEEN government is Modern Babylon. But this does not mean the land of America or the people living in it that believe in YAHSHUA OR SAVIOR. It does not mean the children of the Kingdom of God Almighty. It is however this modern Babylon, this idea of a One world government that controls not only the people but the economics, religion and our society of life of this nation. This is what is going down as Modern Great Babylon, for it is against the laws of God, and will not fit in his Kingdom rule of earth.
We are receiving lots of information from different areas, and it is all coming down now to one meaning--Babylon is falling. There are, as you know, lots of people on this planet today. Some are here yet from older civilizations such as the Hopi from our southwest, and the Aborigines from Australia, and the Maori from New Zealand, and all are looking for something to happen. For they still worship the Great Spirit. And they have passed down truth from one generation to another, much better than has our race. These older civilization citizens now in our world are a closely knit group of people everywhere they reside. They generally keep to themselves, share their tribal prophecies, with very few outsiders and generally lead simpler lives, closely tied to the earth. Due however to the times, some have been willing to share their information with us.
And altho these groups of people are thousands of miles distant from each other their prophecies are remarkably similar. From them came the warning of the disaster of floods which would hit China. To them it would be a signal that something else was to happen. This even would for them be the signal to tell us that America is also in trouble.
In China it was the three Gorge Dam project which would eventually control the Yangtze river, or so they hoped. I would consume 130,000 acres, and stretch 400 miles along the Yangtze river. Thus the Chinese went into the forests along the river and cut down the trees and were stockpiling them for later use in dikes in the river. The Green group of the U.S. and our government and the world bank tried to stop this because of what they considered would be harm to the environment, and would become a disaster. This Chinese plan has displaced two million people from their homes. As you know then the floods came, and this year has been a nightmare. For with the flood came the logs down stream doing lots of damage. Now the floods have reached China's oil fields.
From Australia, then came this report of a vision seen 12 years ago of the ‘Great Seal of the United States,’ by Stan Deyo, who wrote earlier ‘The Cosmic Conspiracy.’ And then in 1989, wrote the ‘Vindicator Scrolls,’ which also named America as Babylon the Great of the book of Revelation. In this dream or vision he saw the great seal of the U.S. floating over a flattened pyramid on the Great Seal. Then the Great Seal spun around and became transparent so that he could see both sides of the Seal. Then he saw columns of light formed from the tail feathers of the Eagle, and these lights shown down onto the base of the pyramid. The illuminated Roman numbers were DC-LX-VI, or 666 in the Arabic numbering system. At that time he did not realize what it meant. But he also then saw an Eagle-like bird rise up at the foot of the pyramid to a position over the pyramid which had no cornerstone. The numbers not illuminated were MCX or 1110 which is the 666 of ancient Great Babylon's sexogesimal number system. Stan had never heard of this numbering system, so he turned to the encyclopedia searching for old world numbering systems and there it was.
Over the years, lots of people have picked up on this picture seen in the dream of this return of the Phoenix-like Antichrist of Biblical prophecy. They have warned of the approaching of the Antichrist global monetary system, and that the Antichrist would plan to sit upon the apex of the Pyramid symbolizing the rightful position of the Chief cornerstone, rejected by the Builders.
From this picture, then America would be this picture of the Modern Babylon---Great Babylon, whether by design of the manipulators or by deception.
Later comes the book ‘AMERICA --THE BABYLON,’ by Richard Coombs. And as I read this book, some I can agree with and some I cannot. This author did most of his studying in the realm of ‘organized Christian religion.’ And he sees a different picture from what I see, for he does not realize that because of deception over these many years that the words Jew and Israel are not the same people. These words are not interchangeable. The Jews at the time of Jesus, were Edomites who came into the land of Judea and took over the government and the Temple of the Israelites. History bears this out as does the Bible when interpreted right.
Our author has done a great amount of study and work over these many years in preparation for his book. But in my view. By not discovering the difference in the people called Jew and Israelites, then this deception carried out over the years is still alive. In his book the author gives 100 identifications points proving that America today is Mystery Babylon. He takes these from the scripture. And many of us here today have been aware that Old Babylon was destroyed, but a stump or root still remained. And we have been seeing this drive in our nation of America for a One World Government, controlled by a One World money system and we have seen this as Modern Great Babylon.
We learned from the scriptures that Great Mystery Babylon is a world system, and it would be set in place to control Religion, and our way of life under Christianity by this control over the economy. Thus, their money system of the world to hold you in line in bondage under their philosophy.
As you see the Stan Deyo web site and printed out this information, then when talking about America suffering a devastating attack, which will destroy her totally, then the word HER printed out in the color Red. To me this was the key to understanding this last Great battle for the Kingdom of God between the children of YAHWEH (God)---the Israel of the Bible (Revelation 12), and this modern Great Babylon. By this then we see the prophecy fulfilled which you read in Micah 4:10----"I shall take you to great Babylon, and then you shall be delivered from the hands of thine enemies.”
You will remember how of old that the last of the Judah kingdom went into captivity in old Babylon, and then 70 years later they were delivered. Some of them returned to Judea to rebuild and be in place for the birth of the Christ Child. History as well as the scriptures tell us that the people of the Judah kingdom who returned to Judea, brought with them some people who were not of Israel. They had lived among these people in Babylon and some had intermarried with them. As the Israel people under their Priests then cleaned out the people of the Judah kingdom who were not Israelites, then they turned to rebuilding Jerusalem and also their old cities. But always they were bothered with the world order around them.
You know what happened at the time of the birth of Christ for we have covered that time of history pretty thoroughly. But the world of today seems to have forgotten that we were also told in the writings of II Esdras that from old Babylon, and that area that the rest of Israel, and part even of Judah left that old land. In the spring then YAHWEH held back the spring floods until they had passed over the river and commenced their long migration to the west. Since that time then those people of Israel became lost to the world's view as the Almighty moved his people----Israel----Westward.
After the Crucifixion and Resurrection, then any left of the Judah kingdom people also received permission from Rome, which now controlled Judea, and given permission they also moved to the west under different names. But they found and settled among their own kinsmen who were settled in the west. Thus Lost Israel has only been lost in the minds of those who have been blind to History, and deceived by this coming Antichrist.
But I would remind you that the promises to Abraham have been fulfilled of a Great nation and a Company of Nations. We thus saw Great Britain rise and become under the symbols of the Bull and the Unicorn, the mistress of the Seas---Ephraim taking his place in history. Then we also saw the Manasseh people, under the sign of the outstretched wings of the Eagle, rise in the west as the last Great Nation of God's kingdom. With this mind, then you should not be surprised if the last battle with Great Babylon would concentrate on the land in the west, for they must stop this setting in place of God's kingdom in earth or they have lost out.
This, my friends, is where we stand today. And this HER in the picture is the Woman symbolized by----the woman on the back of the Red Beast (world order) which is full of Blaspheme. (Revelation 17) But this woman Israel (Revelation 12) is YAHWEH'S kingdom. And as we come down thru the years then we find that there has always been war between these two kingdoms for they are both fighting for control of the earth, and have been doing this for a long, long time. Here today you would say that this first woman and that kingdom ruled by Lucifer, or the devil, has total control of America. But go on to the next chapter of Revelation and you find that the time comes for the fall of Great Babylon. Thus, YAHWEH is still in control.
"Babylon the Great (this modern Babylon) is fallen, is fallen. For she has become the habitat of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit and a cage of very unclean and hateful bird."
Here you are told in symbolism that ‘She’, this kingdom of the woman on the back of the Red Beast (world order) has corrupted the whole world. Thus, this cannot be the kingdom of YAHWEH. And now this corrupt system is to fall and be found no more.
Our author, Mr. Combs, has worked thru the scriptures and came up with the proof that America is Great Babylon today. But we just differ with him as to what part of America is Modern Babylon, and who the people of the other Kingdom are. And also as to the identity of the demonic spirits which rule here at the end of the age.
Our author asks, ‘Is there any thing which point to suggest that there are Satanic military bases existing on American soil today?’ Yes. We would say there are some and they have been operating for years. There is much secrecy about Area 51, and about events in Arizona in the earlier years. There are hidden actions by our government even in our going into space. But this is the work of our unseen government in their push for this final One World program. The United Nations has been a part of this program and they are trying very hard to hang on to it and put our military under that control. This has happened to a great extent.
The church world acceptance of the idea that the Jews were the people of the Bible had hidden the developments of this Modern Great Babylon for years. Perhaps this is also YAHWEH'S program for the education of HIS People. But we have now come to the time when all this mystery is to be cleared up. Thus Revelation 18 tells us that ----Great Babylon, this mystery control of earth is fallen---has fallen. And here today we wait for this development. For we know that as the vision ended that again a Great Eagle stretched out over the Pyramid of the Great Seal of the United States.
Our author points out that the reason for this judgment on Great Babylon and its severity is found in verses 3-7 of Chapter 18, of the book of Revelation.
Great Babylon has led the world into joining the rebellion against God. (Even the establishment of the United Nations was wrong.) But because this HER --this symbol of the kingdom of Lucifer ---Her sins have reached into the heavens. This woman has glorified herself, wallowed in luxury, and has refused to recognize the sovereignty of God.
Now again, our author, I believe, not understanding the difference in the people called Jew and Israel, makes a wrong conclusion as he interpreted verse 4, which says: "Come out of her, My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Our author, thinking this is the Jews, then suggests that the Jewish people leave America. He says that the largest population of Jewish people in the world can be found in America. In fact in New York, there is a tight concentration of Jewish homes. And not far from New York, in fact one of the suburbs, the name of that locality is Babylon.
This woman, symbol of a kingdom, sees herself as in control of the of the whole world. She knows of no loss and therefore sees no reason to mourn. Thus we say in contradiction of our author, how could the Jews then be the Israel of God when they do not carry the testimony of JESUS CHRIST? (Revelation 12:17) They do not carry this because they do not believe in HIM. They did not accept HIM as He came to His own land and they still do not accept HIM today. Thus we say that this has to be Modern Babylon which is to be destroyed. For this one hour, one day destruction never occurred in the days of old Babylon. Besides, this Great Babylon has a trade deficit. So look at the U.S. of today and how our government has been managed.
Our author points out that which we also find in scriptures that Verse 21----indicates that Great Babylon will just disappear. There will no longer remain the lifestyle that Modern Babylon has created. In fact, Modern Babylon just disappears, like a great millstone that would be cast into the sea. But this word ‘sea’ also denotes people. So she disappears because of their sorceries all nations of earth were deceived.
As our author points out, the word Sorceries in the Greek is the word Pharmakeia. And we find that they did this deceiving of the people by the administering of drugs, poisoning (the water), and also in conjunction with the occult, and of entering into occult treaties with Satanic forces for a favor in exchange for their alliance to the rebel ‘Satanic’ cause.
Now we do not find that there is a rapture as our author suggests. This is also a misnomer that has fooled people over the years. We believe this has just been part of the blindness which has occurred for the children of God. The reason we believe this is that YAHWEH as YAHSHUA, Jesus the Christ, went everywhere in Judea preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom. This was for the establishment of his kingdom in earth for this millennium rule of 1000 years by His people under His leadership.
Actually, my friends, I believe that this seven years of tribulation they are looking for is bunk. You have been under tribulation ever since the coming of Adam and Eve. In some generations the tribulation has been worse than in others. But this has been a battle between the Children of Light (spirit) and the children of darkness (those without the spirit of Yahweh, only a created spirit) ever since Adam for this last great battle against this rebellious Archangel (Satan, the Dragon--or the devil as he is called.) This battle is for the control of earth and to stop the development of the Kingdom of God for this reign in the Millennium which is coming up.
Over the years I have read much of this material which our author uses to prove his point. And I have listened to Richard Hoagland in his explanations as to our space program in the U.S. And I would thus like to point out a bit more of the story which our author did not use. The book of Genesis paints the picture of Adam and Eve. And by Chapter three, we see that the Serpent (the devil or Lucifer) is in the picture as is the Beast of the field (the world order.)
I would point out then the book of the generation of Adam. This race of Adamic people then started in the day that God formed Adam (man), in the likeness of God was he formed. Thus from the first of the BOOK then we have had the two kingdoms that were on earth. And they will run side by side down thru the years, but always in opposition. Then as YAHWEH came into earth as YAHSHUA, HE said that He came ONLY to the Lost Sheep of Israel. At that time the Jews were not scattered, but they controlled Jerusalem and Judea. But they also understood that at that time they could not go to the lands in the west. (Look that up) That is the beginning of your story in symbolism. And you also have the promise to Abraham of a great nation, and a Company of Nations. And we know of the birth of Manasseh and Ephraim to Joseph and Asneth. We see the westward migration of the people known as Israelites--Hebrews, and we know of the other names that they are called as they moved under their symbols. And then we see thru the years the rise of Great Britain under the symbol of the Bull and the Unicorn, to become the Queen of the Seas. We know of the break away of the United States from Great Britain to fulfill her prophecy of Manasseh as a Great Nation, under the symbol of the outstretched wings of the Great Eagle, and her number of 13. Then as this last great Kingdom rises then you would expect the enemy to attack her and concentrate on America so as to stop the putting into place of this Kingdom of YAHWEH in earth for the Millennium reign. Thus for this last of the story then you must turn again and finish the book of Revelation.
"Thus there appeared in the heavens a great wonder; a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, and upon her bead a crown of 12 stars. And she being with child, cried travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered." But --- "There appeared in heavens another wonder, and behold a great red dragon. This dragon had seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his head. And his tail (tale) drew the third part of heaven (in this area that he controlled) and did cast them down to earth. And thus the Dragon stood before the woman (Rev. 12) to destroy her child (Jesus the Christ), as soon as it was born.”
I ask you this. Then who was king in Judea when Jesus was born? (None other than Herod, king of the Jews). If he had been an Israelite, he would not have order the killing of the babes in Bethlehem for those people were looking for the coming of their savior.
Now read Revelation 12:6---Where did the woman flee to?---
Verse 16:---The earth helped the woman (Israel) as they fled westward.
Verse 17:--The Dragon was wroth with the woman and went to make war with the remnant of her seed---WHICH KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD AND HAVE THE TESTIMONY OF JESUS CHRIST. (Rev 12:17)
As we moved thru time, then I grant you that we here in America who profess to be Christians and believe in the Bible have not always kept the Commandments as well as we might. But there has also in these latter years been a great opposition to our Faith. And it has been quite a battle for a blinded people to hang on to those ten commandments, but the testimony of Jesus Christ has been much easier since HE put that love in our hearts.
Thus today then where would you look for Great Babylon to be located, and where will she fall, but in the Western nations of God's Kingdom, where they have been blinded, taken over, and thru the years in their churches given away their heritage, to a people who did not even believe in their God. It was in the 16th century that first the Church in Sweden decided to let the Jews be the Judah of the Bible, and then other Christian nations followed suit. They did this then to find that would not be enough for the Jews wanted it all. And therefore you have the Churches of today teaching that the Jews are the people of the Bible.
We would then call attention to the finish of the story also found in the end of the book of Revelation as to The Marriage Supper of the Lamb. (Rev 19:7) This is in symbolism the time when God is joined with His people. His wife (Israel of the ancient star bible has made herself ready. Thus who are these people who are now ready?--Chapter 21 of the Book of Revelation, verse 10-14. Thus, they are the descendants of none other than the 12 tribes of Israel. The descendants of those people in the Old Testament before this mention of the Jews is ever found.
Just remember that you of HIS kingdom are being tried as ----"Gold tried in the fire.” You may melt it down but it is still there.
So awake and study to find out who you are, and what is to happen next.
May YAHWEH BLESS.
