John, Donna, & Doves,
John, I agree with your assesment of the RCC and its fulfillment of scripture as the Whore of Rev. that is riding the beast and I do believe as you that one of the seventh will become the eighth king, thus a pope will come back to life. I wander if this will be by DNA manipulation? It seems lodgical that a dead corpse could be cloned with todays evil technology!
I got to thinking about something while studying this, and came to the conclusion that Satan, the dragon, and Lucifer are all representative of the False godhead. He is the opposite of and a mirror image of everything holy. Thus, the anti-christ or (anti-messiah), could be represented by a pope, cloned, possably, back to life with fallen angel DNA of Satan. Thus, he would be a modern day Nephilim and could be considered to be satans biological (son of perdition), yet satan would not neccesarily be him, just representative of him, or called the beast by association, or he could still be possessed by satan as you suggested.
The False Prophet would have to be an opposite reflection of Jerusalem, the true church, and the Holy Spirit. Thus, the RCC, centered in Rome, would have an evil spirit and be blasphemous to Almighty God and his true identity! The false prophet has no power without the dragons presense. These two could be cast ALIVE into the lake of fire and satan would be able to escape until he is bound and cast into the "bottomless pit." John, I noticed in your post that you stated the 2 beasts were destroyed, not so. They are tormented for ever and ever in the lake of fire. Satan wants to be LIKE GOD! So, he imitates the holy trinity, with him at the top as god, his son (of perdition) would be the ANTI-christ or (anti-messiah) infused with his own DNA, and the representative of his evil spirit would eminate from the false prophet, his evil church, and city on 7 hills.
My biggest problem has been with BHO, as I have read everything on the 5 doves and found the math to be conclusive as to him being the anti-christ. I have also had trouble with the timing, as far as with the temple problem! I now feel that the temple is going to have to be completed, in order to fulfill prophecy......although I do not think that it is in the Jews best interest to do it because Jesus already FINISHED the sacraficial system at the cross! Great pain is going to be brought upon them for this but Jesus says he will take them back when they turn unto him and cry out, as a prodigal son returning home! And then armageddon and his wrath will be totally unleashed on the earth and the devil and demons that have caused this entire perversion of his original creation and purpose. But, back to "0".....I think he is the muslim mahdi ! Everything he has done and is doing in the world is to benefit Islam! He is systematically eliminating all of the despots that have been ruling in the muslim countries and to much adoration to himself by all muslims. Could it be that satan will use the muslims and their mahdi, to first attack the Jews and then after they repent to Jesus and he protects them that he will turn and go after the Christians and begin murdering them! Could the 10 kings be muslim, a cooperation between the vatican and muslims in order to illiminate the Jews and Christians?
Revelations 17: 16......And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
17.........For God hath put it in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
Sounds like the muslims are going to give their kingdom to the beast in an alliance with the whore to kill Jews and Christians. But then the beast is going to turn on the whore and wipe her out. Rome will be destroyed and Babylon will have fallen.
Alot of possabilities, it has got to be getting awfully close, and everything that is going on is totally wierd in the entire world. Let me know what you think as I am still not 100% sure, but I am trying hard to understand it. I think Jonathan Kleck is definately being lead by the Holy Spirit and I agree with him that this is all about DNA and the corruption thereof. The Nephalim were never completely wiped out as God commanded after the flood when they reappeared and it makes alot of sense to me why I have this battle going on continually in my mind....right & wrong! Our flesh is corrupted and that is why we have to die and be reborn incorrupt. It all makes sense,...... the info is really speeding up and it is so far removed from everyday reality that it is hard to talk to anyone about it because it does sound crazy, especially to those not saved or misguided!
Praise Jesus and may God bless you all,
I forgot to respond to your response about the angel that opens the bottomless pit. I am quite sure that this angel is satan because it says:
rev. 9:1......And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key to the bottomless pit.
Notice in Luke chap 10:18.....And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
That was Jesus talking in Luke. A fall indicates a moral lapse, to descend from a higher to a lower position.
verse 2......And he opened the bottomless pit;................................
If you go to Rev. 20: 1...........And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
This time the angel comes down instead of falling down from heaven.
What do ya think?
