Revelation 13 speaks of two beasts; historically the first beast is believed to be Rome, while I believe the second beast to be the United States of America. After a while the second beast was empowered to give life to the “image” of the first beast that was killed and later revived. In layman’s terms, The United States of America helped to revive the old Roman Empire through Vatican City and the Roman Catholic Church.
The true Church of God has been hijacked. The policies of Vatican City and the United States of America merged, causing the true doctrine of Christianity to be viewed through their dim eyes. When the average, so called “God fearing” American citizen thinks of their country they think of it as a Christian nation. News flash! No nation in this world can be called a godly nation, let alone a Christian nation. Everything man touches or creates is erring; apart from the God’s eternal Kingdom there is no such thing as a sinless nation.
Christ did not come to establish a Christian nation on earth. Jesus told us plainly that His Kingdom was not of this world. Vatican City and the United States of America have commandeered the teachings of Christ, and like the religious leaders during Christ’s earthly ministry, they have distorted the teaching to best suite their needs.
I am growing extremely weary of all the “Christian” political jargon. If Christians would once again become students of the Word of God, and not ardent followers of political parties, perhaps we could see souls translated into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son. Listen, no man and no political party can reverse what the Spirit of Prophecy i.e., Jesus Christ has declared. The writing is on the wall! The end is coming; the question is, where are you putting your attention these days?
Just because you parade the so called “moral issues” of the day, it does not make you a messenger of righteousness. Have we forgotten that Satan himself will masquerade as an angel of light? The violation of God’s law runs deeper that a few surface issues. Man has sinned, and there is only one way to fix sin, confession is made unto salvation. We need to acknowledge our iniquity; every man woman boy and girl is in need of a Savior. God did not send His only begotten Son to die for the countries and nations of this world; God’s sacrifice was made for the people. God will not save people through the nations of this world.
Man has always been manipulative. No small wonder, Satan deposited that seed a long time ago. Whenever we want something to happen a certain way we begin to persuade the people around us, first by finding shared interests, and then by painting a beautiful picture of the end result. Consider Genesis 3:1-6, “Now the serpent was more shrewd than any of the wild animals that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, ‘Is it really true that God said, you must not eat from any tree of the orchard?’ The woman said to the serpent, ‘We may eat of the fruit from the trees of the orchard; but concerning the fruit of the tree that is in the middle of the orchard God said ‘you must not eat from it, and you must not touch it, or else you will die.’ The serpent said to the woman, ‘Surely you will not die, for God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will open and you will be like divine beings who know good and evil.’ When the woman saw that the tree produced fruit that was good for food, was attractive to the eye, and was desirable for making one wise, she took some of its fruit and ate it. She also gave some of it to her husband who was with her, and he ate it.”
Satan is at work behind the curtain. He is allowing man to think that he is in control. The sad thing is that man really thinks that he’s calling the shots. With the master deceiver pulling the strings we should not be surprised that God will soon bring to an end the nations of this world.
Dear Christian friend, my appeal to you is simple; don’t let Satan deceive you any longer. “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I write unto you. For you know perfectly that the day of the Lord will come suddenly as a thief in the night. For when they cry, ’peace and safety’ then sudden destruction will come upon them just as labor pains come upon a woman giving birth; they will not escape. But brethren, you are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you. You are all the children of light, and the children of the day. We are not of the night or of the darkness. Therefore, let us not sleep, as do others, but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep slumber in the night; and they that drink are drunk in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of fait and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God has not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” (I Thessalonians 5:1-9).
The two most powerful “spiritual” nations in the world today are about to fall; what happens after their demise? With the Brotherhood of Muslims on the rise, one can only speculate.
