http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:At_a_loss.svgMany people are perplexed and mystified about the current state of affairs in this rapidly emerging dystopian, totalitarian society. And rightfully so!

.

The world has always been a crazy place to a certain extent. But The United States mostly was able to overcome some of its past injustices which marred its goodness.

For example, the Christian community, along with leaders such as Lincoln, were finally able to vanquish secularists and false Christians who held humans in bondage during the early era of this nation!

.

This victory was a wonderful testimony to the greatness of the American Constitution!

Psalm 9:17 

.

But nations rise, and nations fall.

.

And there now seems to be a power surge occurring, in which this nation appears to be thrust down into its ultimate destruction.

.

Yes, just as the Bible foretold, there would arise a beast-power which would cause a great pandemic paradigm shift!

https://theheavensdeclare.net/flood-waters-of-satan/“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

.

There are two main political powers in this and also in other western nations: “The Right”, and “The Left”. “Conservatives”, and “Liberals”. “Capitalists”, And “Socialists”.

.

Now, to understand these two groups, we need to read Revelation, Chapter 13:11…“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.”

.

This chapter describes a spiritual entity, empowered by Satan, which arises out of the earth, and causes the whole world to bow down to the first Beast of Revelation 13 (Satan’s Antichrist world-system).

.

This second Beast, which is called, “The False Prophet”, has two lamblike horns of power, yet speaks as a dragon (which we are now witnessing).

TWO LAMB-LIKE HORNS

.

Now listen to this next verse…“Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.” Psalm 85:10  

.

Here is revealed the two horns of power of Christ, whom the Bible refers to as, “The Lamb of God”. John 1:29, 36

.

And so, this False Prophet has two horns like a lamb. And as with most false prophets, Satan’s goal is to present a cheap imitation of Jesus.

.

.

.

MERCY AND JUSTICE?

.

It is easily discerned that each political party in this nation claims to be either, “The Party of Compassion & Peace”, or “The Party of Justice & Morality”.

.

Yes, each horn of power in this society claims to be the defenders of their own brand of godliness.

.

And yet, 2nd Timothy 3:5 warns against, “having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”.

.

In other words, to have any goodness, while being void of the Holy Spirit is an impossibility…“There is none that doeth good, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10-12)

https://theheavensdeclare.net/flood-waters-of-satan/“the whole world lies in wickedness”

1st John 5

.

The Bible repeatedly reassures us that, “the whole world lies in wickedness” 1st John 5.

.

Oh yes, there is “a form of godliness” in the world. 2nd Timothy 3:5

.

But the godliness of this unsaved world is merely a cheap counterfeit and will be mingled with all sorts of wickedness!

.

.

.

.

.

.

“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without Me ye can do nothing”

John 15:5

https://theheavensdeclare.net/flood-waters-of-satan/.

And so, God has given this counterfeit of the Lamb of God the title, “The False Prophet” having “two horns like a Lamb, and speaking as a Dragon (Satan)”.

.

And so, it should be of no surprise that each of these two horns of power attempt to act out their respective counterfeit forms of godliness, howbeit very poorly.

.

In simpler terms, we see the political “Left” attempting to perform various acts of mercy/compassion, with the political “Right” attempting to perform various acts of justice/morality.

.

And yet, without God’s indwelling Spirit of Holiness, both of these two political powers are making a mockery of true compassion and true justice. They simply cannot do things correctly, being void of the Holy Spirit!

.

As Jesus says, “For without Me, ye can do nothing!” John 15:5.

.

Yes, without Jesus residing in my heart, I may have “a form of godliness”, but it will merely be a satanic counterfeit!

.

.

.

.

.

.

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth…”

Revelation 13:11

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Inkwazi_Shopping_Centre,_Malelane_Superspar.jpg.

First of all, this False Prophet, (Satan’s reign over America), arises “out the earth”, while the first Beast (Satan’s reign over Europe causing Church & State oppression) arose from the sea (the sea of nations).

.

Yes, Satan’s empowering of America came largely from the natural resources of the earth, which it was empowered to bring in the “industrial” age in which mass-manufacturing of goods of nearly every type enriched this and even other nations. But false prophets usually promise earthly prosperity to their followers. And Satan used the things of the earth to cause the whole world to look to America as the world leader.

“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

https://theheavensdeclare.net/television-the-image-that-speaks/.

In former decades, it was not nearly so obvious that America spoke as a dragon. However, for decades now, Satan has been speaking through television, radio, Internet, and the printed page, promoting sexual immorality, selfishness, unbridled hedonism, narcissism, etc., masking them under the cloak of “a form of godliness”. 2nd Timothy 3:5

.

But as of late, this beast-like power has been spewing its dragon-like hatred in the form of racism, hateful politics, dividing the citizens of this nation and the citizens of other nations, one against another!

.

Through lies, distortion of truth, using even various TV shows and movies, this False Prophet has promoted a false narrative to cause “the love of many to wax cold” Matthew 24:12.

“…but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel”

Proverbs 12:10 

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File%3A120310censorship.jpgNow as far as having two horns, which are only counterfeits of true mercy and justice, let’s examine this Beast.

.

For example, the political “Left” continually tramples on the rights and freedoms of various “unprotected” groups, while supposing to help other “politically correct” groups which they favor.

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:We_Can_Do_It!.jpgOn the other hand, the political “Right” often goes too far in promoting causes which the Bible forbids. In other words, they often encourage “human effort” instead of encouraging humanity to place implicit trust in the “exceeding great and precious promises” found throughout Scripture. (2nd Peter 1:4)

.

And so, these are merely two examples of how the False Prophet Beast of Revelation 13 is a poor counterfeit of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Proverbs 25:25

.

But lest we become overwhelmed by all the counterfeit deception in this wicked kingdom of Satan, it is urgent that we instead, turn our eyes upon the true essence of mercy and truth, of righteousness and peace…Jesus Christ!

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Rezando.jpg.

It is by beholding Jesus that we become changed into His glorious Image, via the indwelling Power of the Holy Spirit! (see 2nd Corinthians 3:18)

.

It is becoming increasingly dangerous to linger upon the abounding wickedness of the everyday world affairs.

.

And the Bible promises us…

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,

whose mind is stayed upon Thee,

because he trusteth in Thee.”

(Isaiah 26:3)

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).
