The following is my latest commentary on chapter 13 of the book of Revelation. I suggest you set aside all your previous notions and take a fresh look.
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
The beast in the vision of this chapter is represented slightly differently to the dragon in the vision of chapter 12 verse 3. There the 7 crowns were on the heads of the great red dragon but in this chapter 13 they are on the 10 horns, and thus there are 10 crowns.
The image in chapter 12 vision has 7 heads representing or indicating the 7 kingdoms of man that have dominated the world — Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome. The Devil also referred to as the dragon has always controlled the kingdoms of man through the leaders and kings of those kingdoms. In the vision in this chapter I believe that 3 of the 7 heads are not all the same as in the image of chapter 12. It is explained below.
The main focus in this vision is on the 10 horns, which represent kingdoms of man in this final age. The word ‘crowns’ is translated from the Greek word διάδημα diadema or “diadem” representing royalty. Diadems are worn by the kings. I don’t believe that the number 10 needs to be exact as many numbers in Revelation are symbolic.
“I do not like the late resurrection of the Jesuits. … the Jesuits in the U.S. are more numerous than everybody knows. Shall we not have swarms of them here, in as many shapes and disguises as ever a King of the Gypsies, Bamfied More Carew himself, assumed? In the shape of printers, editors, writers, school masters etc?… If ever any congregation of men could merit eternal perdition on earth and in hell… it is this company of Loyola [founder of the Jesuits].”
Letter From 2nd U.S. President John Adams to Thomas Jefferson, 6 May 1816 (see here)
“The Jesuits are the deadly enemies of civil and religious liberty.”
In a five-hour video, Australian rock star Altiyan Childs, 45, has broken his Masonic vows and risked his life to prove beyond any doubt that Freemasonry is Satanism, and Freemasons control the world. This is an essential reality check.
In a video he released last month, he announced that he has now put his life on the line to renounce his secret Freemason vows. His life has recently changed after being awakened in a speeding car that was heading straight into a brick wall because the driver had fallen asleep. He says he heard a whisper in his ear that woke him from a deep sleep, and that he was able to grab the steering wheel and avoid the crash.
“I shouldn’t be here today,” he states.
The penalty for renouncing your vows in Freemasonry is death, but he feels compelled to expose Freemasonry for what it is: the oldest religion in the world.
According to Childs, almost every notable person running the world today, from politics to business to entertainment, got there through Freemasonry. And his 5 plus hour video was produced to convince you that this is true, from an insider perspective, and to warn about what is soon coming: the implementation of the Luciferian New World Order.
Think of this as the spiritual perspective, the driving force behind the plan to reduce the world’s population dramatically, by killing off many of the world’s inhabitants.
You will be able to better understand why people can be so evil, and invent things like the bioweapon COVID-19 shots that are designed to kill off a major portion of the world’s population, with tens of thousands of deaths already recorded, and maybe hundreds of thousands more that have not.
It is well worth the 5 hours of investment in your time, I guarantee.
Here is a very powerful sermon by Pastor David Wilkerson overlaid with video footage of the demonic deception that has entered the modern church. Pastor Wilkerson is very much led of the Spirit as he calls out the wolves in sheep clothing who masquerade as Christians with an apparent message from God the Spirit. Instead they are demon-filled deceivers of weak minded followers, who probably never cracked open a Bible to see what the truth really is.
This is well worth watching.
The Word of Faith ministries with their health and wealth gospel is one of the devil’s best deceptions on the church. Don’t be misled. Demonic possession is not the same as being filled with the Holy Spirit.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
The deception is now very great in the organisations that call themselves churches of God. But they are grossly deceived. Their practices are much like those that we see in the Occult and New Age religions.
No wonder Jesus Christ said of them:
I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity.
He did not “know” them because they were not saved/born-again. He did not have close intimate fellowship with them. They are false teachers and wolves hiding among the sheep. Out of their own mouths they say they have a message from Satan.
Wake up people! Much more deception is coming! And very soon! Read your Bibles, especially the book of the Revelation.
C S Lewis is well known among born-again Christians as a ‘Christian’ writer, someone whose inclusive religious viewpoint is of particular relevance to the world we live in today. I would hope to show that this perception of Lewis is not only gravely mistaken but that it arose through deliberate misdirection on the part of Lewis himself.
In 2008, after 33 years as an active participant in the New Age movement, I finally came to Christ. As I found my feet and met with other born-again Christians, I discovered that many Evangelicals, as well as Christians the world over, were keen readers of C S Lewis. They revered him as a great Christian author and apologist for true, Bible-believing Christianity. Frankly, this was a great surprise to me because, as a longtime practitioner of the New Age, I knew what C S Lewis was ‘really’ teaching.
Anyone with a deep familiarity with New Age philosophy, or with a grounding in Theosophy or the occult generally, knows that C S Lewis was about as Christian as the Dalai Lama. Religious, yes. Philosophical, yes. But Christian? Never.
On December 13, 2015 Ben Hartnett shared his personal salvation testimony at the Church at Moonta (South Australia). This was part of several testimonies at the event entitled “The Wonderful Works of God” (Acts 2:11).
For those of you who don’t already know me, my name is Ben. I’m just going to take a few minutes to share my testimony. I’m hoping that it will really inspire and encourage you on your walk with Christ, and if you’re not currently a believer I want to reassure you that God is real, He loves you and if you give Him a chance He will reveal Himself to you. Jesus said,
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him. (Revelations 3:20)
One thing I find so amazing about the Bible is how the stories, lessons, and parables taught, apply to so many peoples lives in so many different situations. They inspire us, comfort us during times of suffering, give us hope for the future and teach us how to live truly fulfilled lives in relationship with God. The Bible is a personal love letter authored by God and addressed to you.
I wrote the following piece called Delusions of Reprieve in late 2008 in a mental hospital in Subiaco, Western Australia. The place served as a revolving door for me from 2007 through to 2013, sometimes seeing me admitted for months at a time. At this stage the only diagnosis of my condition was major depressive disorder with chronic insomnia. Ironically, I wrote this piece sitting up in bed on my laptop at 4 am.
