Part 38:

“Misguided Mercy Toward the Homeless”

“…the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel”

Proverbs 12:10

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svgWhy are so many cities and towns falling into utter dystopian disarray and decay?

.

And why are so many cities filling up with homeless drug addicts and mentally-deranged souls?

.

And why are millions of non-citizens pouring over our borders, often bringing in deadly drugs to sell to these unfortunate addicts?

.

And why are state governments beginning to legalize deadly hallucinogenic drugs, creating a drug addiction crisis, the likes of which has never been seen throughout history?

“but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel”

Proverbs 12:10

Now, if we listen to the political commentators, then we understand that one particular political party and its supporting voters have created and allowed this homeless/drug crisis to spawn and thrive.

.

But why?

“For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent”

1st Corinthians 1:19

.

Yes, why be complicit in this obvious self-destruction of society?

.

Well, that particular political entity insists that such permissiveness is “the compassionate thing to do”.

.

And of course, this same political power-group has spearheaded many similar (and costly) “compassionate” projects over the past decades. 

.

Unfortunately, all this tender mercy being extended by this political power-group has caused a whole lot of trouble, and brought this society to its knees, socially, politically, spiritually, financially, and ultimately to its total collapse in the future!

THE FALSE PROPHET BEAST

.

What also must be understood, is that the Bible forewarned of a beast-like power which would appear in the last days, having two horns like a lamb, and speaks as a dragon. Revelation names this beast-power as, “The False Prophet”.

.

So, this False Prophet antichrist spirit is the 2nd Beast of Revelation 13…“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” Revelation 13:11

.

So this 2nd Beast-power is Satan’s deceptive spirit which counterfeits the Lamb of God, Jesus! And yet he “speaks as a dragon”.

.

Okay, so the 2nd Beast of Revelation 13 has been introduced into this discussion.

.

But just what or who is that 1st Beast of Revelation 13?

.

You must remember that “beasts” in the Bible were often symbolic of kingdoms (see Daniel Chapter 7).  And likewise, that multifaceted 1st Beast was comprised of kings and kingdoms (read Revelation, Chapter 17).

.

To put it concisely, this multi-faceted beast, made of kings and kingdoms is Satan’s antichrist world-system: this fallen world, and the kingdoms which have ruled supreme throughout history. The whore riding the beast represents the apostate church throughout history.

THE 2ND BEAST

.

But after this 1st beast received his deadly wound by a sword (“the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God” Ephesians 6:13, 14), which was the printing press and all the Bibles it produced, Satan altered his modus-operandi, establishing a new and improved Beast.

.

The new beast, the False Prophet, was actually Satan’s antichrist spirit working in and through his vast unseen armies to deceive the world and cause them to worship the mortally-wounded 1st beast, Satan and his kingdom, this antichrist world-system.

THE FALSE PROPHET’S TWO HORNS: MERCY & JUSTICE

.

But before we get into some very tall weeds, let’s back out and focus on just one of this False Prophet beast’s two horns. Yes, the Bible reveals that this second beast has two horns like a lamb. And of course, the Lamb of God, Jesus has two horns of power, Mercy and Truth.

.

But our focus today is only on the mercy horn of this False Prophet. And as we look out upon the political landscape, we can readily see that “Left Horn” to be the aforementioned political entity which claims to be the arbiters and defenders of mercy and compassion.

.

But unlike Jesus, who is the essence of true mercy and compassion, this false prophet beast is a terrible counterfeit of true mercy and compassion!

2nd Timothy 3:5 

.

And so, this Left Horn of the False Prophet, being his “mercy/compassion” horn, is greatly dedicated to performing acts of so-called, “compassion”.

.

Thus, when this Left Horn sits on the throne of power, we should not be surprised to see this power-group greatly implementing social programs which outwardly appear to be merciful and compassionate. Yes, they have an outward “form of godliness”, but are void of the “Spirit of Christ”, “the Spirit of Truth”. (See Romans 8:9, 1st Peter 1:11 & 1st John 4:6)

“Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread…neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy”

Ezekiel 16:49

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Helping_the_homeless.jpg.

And yet, just like what we’re seeing with the homeless crisis, the Left Horn’s mercy is extremely misguided! After all, by allowing drugs to freely pour over our borders, and into the hands of men, women, and even children, we have created an entire class of dysfunctional drug-addicts, living on the streets throughout many cities and towns!

.

And while the Left Horn’s permissiveness gives them the misguided notion (and bragging rights) that they are “the people of compassion”, they are actually imprisoning thousands, maybe millions into Satan’s tangled web of deadly addictions!

“…and the cities of the nations fell”

Revelation 16:19

.

But this so-called compassion is not just destroying countless lives through addiction. But this counterfeit compassion is likewise making life more difficult for the rest of society as well. Not only is the False Prophet beast’s Left Horn draining the economy dry through financing this homeless/drug crisis (and other expensive programs), but also are wreaking havoc on many cities and towns across the nation!

.

In other words, by “mercifully” allowing these drug addicts to set up their camps just about wherever they please, they are destroying entire metro areas, by causing businesses and patrons to flee.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Zombies_NightoftheLivingDead.jpgDrug-fueled lifestyles of stealing, looting, prostitution, and senseless violence have caused many thriving commercial centers to literally devolve into dystopian hellscapes, with zombie-like drug-fiends wandering the streets both day and night in search of another fix, another bottle, another theft, another rape, and another victim!

http://www.crystalinks.com/forests.htmlLEFT HORN IS DYSFUNCTIONAL IN RUNNING THE SOCIETY

.

More often than not, this so-called “compassionate” power-source group has little interest in the “nuts-n-bolts” issues of running cities and nations, but mostly is focused on social-justice issues (thereby increasing their own political power and authority). This lack of proper ‘nuts-n-bolts’ management is another reason why their cities are crumbling, and their cluttered and neglected forests are burning.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against…spiritual wickedness in high places”

Ephesians 6:12

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Martin,_John_-_Satan_presiding_at_the_Infernal_Council_-_1824.JPGBut before we begin pointing the accusing finger at the politicians who helped to create this existential crisis, we need to “give credit where credit is due”, as the old saying goes.

.

In other words, as the Bible clearly reveals…“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” Ephesians 6:12

.

Come on! Are we really going to delude ourselves into believing that all this well-orchestrated evil and destruction is merely happenstance?! Can we not discern that there exists an unseen world of spirit-beings, the true movers-and-shakers of this antichrist world-system?!

“…and the cities of the nations fell”

Revelation 16:19

.

It was prophesied long ago concerning this present hour…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.” Revelation 16:19

.

Yes, God long-ago foresaw the demise of Satan’s Babylonish, antichrist world-system! And the downfall of the “cities of the nations” appears to be an integral part of Satan’s preparation for the coming police-state, totalitarian furnace-of-affliction!

.

Therefore, mere unsaved humans are not the true culprits in the destruction of the cities! They are merely the instruments which Satan uses to carry out his end-time assault! They are the useful pawns in Lucifer’s deadly chess-game against fallen mankind.

“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?”

But let’s not vainly imagine that God’s people are going to be snatched away prior to the coming tempest and trial before us!

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Como-investir-ouro.jpgAfter all, what today’s erring Bible teachers ignore and neglect to tell their flock, is that while Christians “are not appointed to wrath”, we are indeed appointed to tribulation! And the coming “time of trouble” is being specifically allowed by God to purify His people from every trace of love for this selfish world! (1st Thessalonians 5:9 & Daniel 12:1)

.

Yes, the many trials ahead are designed to burn away the dross, so that we can say…“But He (God) knoweth the way that I take: when He hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” Job 23:10

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

And the Good News is that any man, woman, or child who desires to have true mercy and compassion can renounce and turn away from this “two-beast, antichrist world-system”, and begin to follow Jesus as leads His sheep up the gently ascending Highway to Heaven!

perilous times shall come.

For men shall be lovers of their own selves,

covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, etc., etc….

Having a form of godliness,

but denying the power thereof:

from such turn away”

2nd Timothy 3:1, 2, 5

7 HEADS, 10 HORNS, & 7 CROWNS OF THE DRAGON

.

“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.” Rev. 12:3 

.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon Constellation up in the night sky does not. But God has faithfully created the wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically composed of ten stars. The main body of the wave has seven stars (#‘s, 1 thru 7). And the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars (#’s, 8, 9 & 10). So we have this 7 and 10 numbering. And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).
