BECAUSE IT IS ALL HOLY SPIRIT LED!
To explain the Book of Revelation is to explain all history of this world from the war in heaven to the very end and the triumphant return to Paradise with the Lord Thy God. It cannot be said in a blog, but it can have a beginning of understanding so one can open the Bible and have eyes to see deeper insights and have ears to hear greater things.
For the Book of The Revelation of Jesus the Christ is a book of all things from the beginning unto the very end of time. To fully understand one verse, you have to go throughout the Bible and see the cross reference as its’ witness that it is so, and that this indeed is what is meant. To begin to show what it means is to help the person understand the metaphors and the prophecies that were given along with the history of the ages in the Bible and in the world. The beast itself, is a historic view of all empires throughout history and at the time of John, he was TOLD TO WRITE THE THINGS HE HAD SEEN, and what now is, and what is yet to come. So even with John… the details of what is yet to come is a mystery. It can be fast tracked if one doesn’t want to cite and cross reference each scripture for each source… but, even with citing scriptures that cross reference, theologians argue, so with that being said, here is what many see as the meaning of Chapter 13 in the book of Revelation. Which “spoiler alert”, Revelation Chapter 17 and 18 tell you a lot of what it means. So you don’t have to be confused when things get twisted by skewed interpretations.
Let’s look first at the use of metaphors and animals in the book of Revelation and the entire Bible (another spoiler alert – it’s not just in the Book of Revelation).
Let’s start with Lambs…
Lambs in the Bible have been a constant sacrificial animal, representing goodness, obedience etc. Passover lambs were an important part of the old testament history, as it was the blood of a lamb that was spread over the doorposts of those who obeyed God’s words that spared the Hebrews from dying from the plague of death. It was not a plague of sickness it was a plague of DEATH. Without the blood of the lamb of Christ there is nothing left but death.
We all know when the Bible speaks of the Lamb of God the reference is to our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. We don’t try to make the lamb another person. We understand the lamb is a metaphor for our Lord. Why is it then that many take other metaphors and twist them into one time frame and one event…and some twist it as a mystery that hasn’t happened yet at all, none of it… but one day it will manifest?
The truth is this book is the Revelation of Jesus the Christ. John was told to write and he did. “Revelation 1:19 “Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter;” and John did as he was told and he wrote.
It was clarified when the Lord told John to write, that it was to be what he has seen, the things that are and the things that are to be hereafter, which that in and of itself would be considered all of the history (at least as much as John knew or had seen) in the manner he was told and shown. These things he is to write are of all history from the beginning to the end (things that were, are and yet to come). Metaphors are used and many are the same metaphors given to Daniel, to Ezekiel, to Enoch, and in the parables of Jesus our Lord in His teachings. So why do we marvel? It is because man has entered in and twisted the interpretations and made the truths in Revelations to be a mystery of a last day event that has all to do with a floating set of 7 years that creates much argument among theologians.
Now, I ask you all to ponder this, what good would this Revelation be to any at the time of John or anyone over the past 2,000 years if the message was meant only for those living in the last 7 years of all mankind? It would have not been useful at all for any until the last generation. That is not the case with the book of Revelation. It is the revealing of all things from the beginning to the end and the glory of the Lord as He gave His life for all, the Lamb of God and is worthy to open the seals. Which begin the rest of the story… beginning at the time of John and will ride out to the end of all days. The many things in between yet to come.
These truths were understood by the early disciples for the first five empires are all in their Bible and they experienced this beast that is, for it’s head was the Roman empire that they were under. They were well aware the false gods and goddesses they worshipped, and the false religions in the world of Baal. The whore riding the beast. They were in the thick of it and well aware. Both Caesar and the High Priests were out to rid the world of these followers of the way. Even Saul sought to arrest all of them and end this worship of Jesus. He over saw the stoning of Stephen who was the first to be publicly killed.
Remember at the time of writing the Book of Revelation, John was on the Isle of Patmos. It is told that after the Romans tried to boil him in oil and he lived, they feared to try to kill him any further so they exiled him to a prison sentence on the Isle of Patmos.
From the Foxe Book of Martyrs on John.
The “beloved disciple,” was brother to James the Great. The churches of Smyrna, Pergamos, Sardis, Philadelphia, Laodicea, and Thyatira, were founded by him. From Ephesus he was ordered to be sent to Rome, where it is affirmed he was cast into a cauldron of boiling oil. He escaped by miracle, without injury. Domitian afterwards banished him to the Isle of Patmos, where he wrote the Book of Revelation. Nerva, the successor of Domitian, recalled him. He was the only apostle who escaped a violent death.

The Bible itself is a barometer and guide to understand and to see what was and is … and yet to be. Revelation is the Lord’s word of the account, showing more detail and the final grand finale. Much is revealed for those with eyes to see and ears to hear.
Now there is much debate on what this book means and there shall always be those who see a little here and a little there. Yet, all together we can agree this is a marvelous book that reveals all things from the beginning to the end and shows the promises of God to God’s people shall be fulfilled.
So along with lambs in the Bible, there are other animals also used as sacrifices – goats, ox, doves.
There are clean and unclean animals.
Then there’s beasts of prey as well – lions, bears, leopards, wolves. In the Bible these animals are of course feared. They are top of the food chain and will hunt down and kill others to satisfy their need for meat. Many times in the Bible, Satan is depicted as a hungry lion seeking whom he may devour. The Lord said he sends us out as sheep among wolves. And also in the bible, sometimes God is like a lion, leopard and bear to unbelieving tribes who were idolatrous. Hosea 11:10 – They shall walk after the LORD: he shall roar like a lion: when he shall roar, then the children shall tremble from the west.
Lions are also used to show the beastly empires. At the time of Daniel he knew the world empires that had already reigned on the earth, and now he had a vision of beasts (empires) that were to come.
1. The first beast in Daniel 7 was a Lion. History shows this Lion beast to be a figurative picture of the Babylonian empire. (Babylon controlled the Holy Land from 606 to 536 B.C.)
2. The next beast in his vision was a Bear. History shows this Bear to be a figurative picture of the Medo-Persian empire. (Medo-Persia controlled the Holy Land from 536 B.C. to 332 B.C.)
3. The third beast was a Leopard. History shows this Leopard to be a figurative picture of the Greek empire (Grecian rulers controlled the Holy Land from 332 B.C. to 65 B.C. when Rome took control).
So we are looking at beasts, animals and prey in metaphors and allegories, but interesting, that a constant throughout the Bible and sound unto the very end is the image of the lamb. For believers are written in the Lamb’s book of life. So this being said, let us look at the book of Revelation which can now be seen for what it is. A history of all things from the beginning to the end and a prophetic warning to come out of her my people which is the world or we shall suffer in her plagues. Now this call to come out from her is not new. It has always been the call from the Lord and from God to His chosen people. We are in the world but not of the world is not a special secret for a last generation of people. It is the calling and covenant of God from the beginning and it is the calling promise and covenant unto the end.
For God’s promise to a nation called by his name has not changed. God has always said, I shall be your God and you shall be my people. Leviticus 26:12 “And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people.” It was man that said to God…we want a king over us. Hosea 13:11 “I gave thee a king in mine anger, and took him away in my wrath.”
So let us look at Revelations Chapter 13 and the insight to it revealed in Revelation Chapter 17.
Revelation Chapter 13
The sand of the sea represents the sea of humanity, the children of Israel. Hosea 1:10
“Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.”
The beast that he saw rising up out of the sea of humanity was representative of all the world kingdoms from the beginning to the end. All history of all time presented in one vision. How so? The seven heads are empires/kingdoms that are later pointed out in Rev.17:8-10. The ten crowns are vassal states also pointed out in Rev.17. A vassal state is one who receives protection and land from a lord in return for allegiance and performing military and other duties. It is a state who is subordinate.
Upon their heads (empires) the name of blasphemy for they are of the mind of the world and not of the mind of God and God’s commands. They lust to rule over all the world and what it offers and not of the things of God. They desire power, wealth, fame, and have great appetites and desires for the material and sensual things the world offers and have gone after other gods worshipping idols the Bible calls Baal worship which are of the fallen angels.
Note: One can go back throughout history and write volumes of books on these empires and vassal states and their worldly deeds of destruction, war, conquering, theft, oppression, enslavement, and deceit, let alone how they have committed blasphemy worshipping idols, and sacrificing their children to Baal in rituals to their strange gods.
2And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
The beast was like unto a leopard…feet of a bear, and the mouth of a lion…this is the most powerful of beasts of all the empires all wrapped into one. A unity. From what we now understand of the world beast system we call the deep state cabal, it sure looks like the Bible is showing us a description of a world operating empire that sounds just like the one in operation we are fighting against as they attempt to do their RESET; and that cabal is the corporation of the Bank of London, The Vatican, and the United States Inc. led by those who worship Lucifer and the principalities and powers of darkness.
Biblically these beasts of prey devour, stamp on, and control all the kingdoms of the earth. This beast is global ruling over politics, economics, and spirituality. It has been carefully crafted, groomed, and led in secret to devour their prey. It was formed carefully and crafted by those of the Illuminati who desire the works of this world granted them by their masters the shining one Lucifer. It is of Luciferian descent. And we see the one who empowers it is the dragon/Lucifer the serpent shining one himself.
The dragon is the shining one, serpent, devil, Satan who is the ruler of this world and possessor of all the kingdoms of this earth. He tempted Jesus in the desert taking Him up on a high pinnacle showing Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and offering them to Him if he would only bow down and worship Him. Herein shows who these heads which are empires are not of God but of the world and they are ruled by Satan, full of blasphemy against God and all that is good. For God’s ways are not man’s ways.
The empire of Rome ended in 476 AD and later after a thousand years was revived. Although not as strong, for Iron and clay (God’s people) do not mix. Daniel 2:41-42 “You saw the feet and toes, partly of a potter’s fired clay and partly of iron—it will be a divided kingdom, though some of the strength of iron will be in it. You saw the iron mixed with clay, and that the toes of the feet were partly iron and partly fired clay—part of the kingdom will be strong, and part will be brittle”.
Was the church and state the revived Rome? An official power structure? From the time of Caesar Constantine, the Papacy held a power with the beast and was the newly formed one world religion of the beastly structure of church and state. They took the religion of Rome and its’ gods and goddesses and entwined it with the Christians and followers of the way of Jesus. This new merging of religions played havoc on the world allowing persecution of those who did not follow the rules of the Church and grew into Holy Wars and decrees that authorized Kingdoms to go and conquer lands who were not Christian nations. They held a power greater than a Kings even with no kingdom. That power was unleashed in the decree of Dum Diversas which was a papal bull issued on June 18,1452 by Pope Nicholas V. It authorized Afonso V of Portugal to conquer Saracens and pagans and consign them to “perpetual servitude”. All nations could go forth using this decree to legal conquer lands without consequences for their actions. It is still on the books as legal in our congressional halls as the Doctrine of Discovery. Which allows the government to conquer, lands and people who are not Christian, should they decide to exercise it again. Andrew Jackson used the doctrine of discovery to justify conquering Indian land and nations.
Papal Bull Dum Diversas 18 June, 1452
Pope Nicholas V issued the papal bull Dum Diversas on 18 June, 1452. It authorised Alfonso V of Portugal to reduce any “Saracens (Muslims) and pagans and any other unbelievers” to perpetual slavery. This facilitated the Portuguese slave trade from West Africa. The same pope wrote the bull Romanus Pontifex on January 5, 1455 to the same Alfonso. As a follow-up to the Dum diversas, it extended to the Catholic nations of Europe dominion over discovered lands during the Age of Discovery. Along with sanctifying the seizure of non-Christian lands, it encouraged the enslavement of native, non-Christian peoples in Africa and the New World.
“We weighing all and singular the premises with due meditation, and noting that since we had formerly by other letters of ours granted among other things free and ample faculty to the aforesaid King Alfonso – to invade, search out, capture, vanquish, and subdue all Saracens and pagans whatsoever, and other enemies of Christ wheresoever placed, and the kingdoms, dukedoms, principalities, dominions, possessions, and all movable and immovable goods whatsoever held and possessed by them and to reduce their persons to perpetual slavery, and to apply and appropriate to himself and his successors the kingdoms, dukedoms, counties, principalities, dominions, possessions, and goods, and to convert them to his and their use and profit – by having secured the said faculty, the said King Alfonso, or, by his authority, the aforesaid infante, justly and lawfully has acquired and possessed, and doth possess, these islands, lands, harbors, and seas, and they do of right belong and pertain to the said King Alfonso and his successors”.
In 1493 Alexander VI issued the bull Inter Caetera stating one Christian nation did not have the right to establish dominion over lands previously dominated by another Christian nation, thus establishing the Law of Nations. Together, the Dum Diversas, the Romanus Pontifex and the Inter Caetera came to serve as the basis and justification for the Doctrine of Discovery, the global slave-trade of the 15th and 16th centuries, and the Age of Imperialism.
The iron and clay of the feet and toes vividly shows the tyrannical force of Romes democracy to oppress a people to obey its will for them and it does not mix. Today we are seeing the thralls of world wide resistance as iron and clay do not mix.
Enter Matthew Henry:
As we get into some of these interpretations, there are many views and many unfolding events can be merged together and blend accurately as all part of the signs and events. We always see future events in part and more clearly as they unfold. For the interpretations of the beast and how it was seen before there was a United States of America…let us go to Matthew Henry who dedicated his entire life to study the Word and wrote a commentary that was revealed to him through the Holy Spirit. I am giving my interpretations based on study and how the Holy Spirit has led me to see. I am including for you, the commentary of Matthew Henry and his Holy Spirit led interpretations. You will see that Matthew Henry and I agree on many things, and in some areas we have different views. We see in part and know in part. I don’t argue at all with his findings and what he was shown.
Matthew Henry was born on October 18,1662 – and died June 22, 1714. Remember this beast was growing and set in motion. I see these two insights of the nature of the beast perhaps have merged together.
Matthew Henry Commentary on Revelation Verses 1-4
We have here an account of the rise, figure, and progress of the first beast; and observe, 1. From what situation the apostle saw this monster. He seemed to himself to stand upon the sea-shore, though it is probable he was still in a rapture; but he took himself to be in the island Patmos, but whether in the body or out of the body he could not tell. 2. Whence this beast came—out of the sea; and yet, by the description of it, it would seem more likely to be a land-monster; but the more monstrous every thing about it was the more proper an emblem it would be to set forth the mystery of iniquity and tyranny. 3. What was the form and shape of this beast. It was for the most part like a leopard, but its feet were like the feet of a bear and its mouth as the mouth of a lion; it had seven heads, and ten horns, and upon its heads the name of blasphemy: the most horrid and hideous monster! In some part of this description here seems to be an allusion to Daniel’s vision of the four beasts, which represented the four monarchies, Dan. 7:1-3, etc. One of these beasts was like a lion, another like a bear, and another like a leopard; this beast was a sort of composition of those three, with the fierceness, strength, and swiftness, of them all; the seven heads and the ten horns seem to design its several powers; the ten crowns, its tributary princes; the word blasphemy on its forehead proclaims its direct enmity and opposition to the glory of God, by promoting idolatry. 4. The source and spring of his authority—the dragon; he gave him his power, and seat, and great authority. He was set up by the devil, and supported by him to do his work and promote his interest; and the devil lent him all the assistance he could.
I found Henry’s description closely describes what we are seeing today in the Cabal that desires to rule the world that I was led to see and shared above.
Back to Revelation 13:5–10
It is important to remember that we are reading this at the time of John and this encompasses what John had seen, and what is, and what is to come. He saw the evil from the beast, and was on Patmos after great evil was done to him and the other apostles and followers. He is now shown that it will continue and grow to swallow up the word and turn it into great swelling interpretations and times of blasphemy shall riseup and continue to grow even greater. We look throughout history and the greatest culprit for killing the saints and warring is given to this beast and if we are to follow this particular beast it began at the time of the first followers of the way and grew and grew. It slayed all who would not bow down to Rome and denounce their Christ and later they took the Word and blended it with Roman Gods, entwining it into a condensed book and allowing room for the worship of idols slyly hidden within their newly formed world religion formed in 325 a.d.
Matthew Henry Commentary on Revelation Verses 5-10
5. A dangerous wound given him, and yet unexpectedly healed, v. 3. Some think that by this wounded head we are to understand the abolishing of pagan idolatry; and by the healing of the wound the introducing of the popish idolatry, the same in substance with the former, only in a new dress, and which as effectually answers the devil’s design as that did. 6. The honour and worship paid to this infernal monster: All the world wondered after the beast; they all admired his power, and policy, and success, and they worshipped the dragon that gave power to the beast, and they worshipped the beast; they paid honour and subjection to the devil and his instruments, and thought there was no power able to withstand them: so great were the darkness, degeneracy, and madness of the world! 7. How he exercised his infernal power and policy: He had a mouth, speaking great things, and blasphemies; he blasphemed God, the name of God, the tabernacle of God, and all those that dwell in heaven; and he made war with the saints, and overcame them, and gained a sort of universal empire in the world. His malice was principally levelled at the God of heaven, and his heavenly attendants—at God, in making images of him that is invisible, and in worshipping them;—at the tabernacle of God, that is, say some, at the human nature of the Lord Jesus Christ, in which God dwells as in a tabernacle; this is dishonoured by their doctrine of transubstantiation, which will not suffer his body to be a true body, and will put it into the power of every priest to prepare a body for Christ;—and against those that dwell in heaven, the glorified saints, by putting them into the place of the pagan demons, and praying to them, which they are so far from being pleased with that they truly judge themselves wronged and dishonoured by it.
Thus the malice of the devil shows itself against heaven and the blessed inhabitants of heaven. These are above the reach of his power. All he can do is to blaspheme them; but the saints on earth are more exposed to his cruelty, and he sometimes is permitted to triumph over them and trample upon them.
8. The limitation of the devil’s power and success, and that both as to time and persons. He is limited in point of time; his reign is to continue forty-and-two months (v. 5), suitable to the other prophetical characters of the reign of antichrist. He is also limited as to the persons and people that he shall entirely subject his will and power; it will be only those whose names are not written in the Lamb’s book of life. Christ had a chosen remnant, redeemed by his blood, recorded in his book, sealed by his Spirit; and though the devil and antichrist might overcome their bodily strength, and take away their natural life, they could never conquer their souls, nor prevail with them to forsake their Saviour and revolt to his enemies. 9. Here is a demand of attention to what is here discovered of the great sufferings and troubles of the church, and an assurance given that when God has accomplished his work on mount Zion, his refining work, then he will turn his hand against the enemies of his people, and those who have killed with the sword shall themselves fall by the sword (v. 10), and those who led the people of God into captivity shall themselves be made captives. Here now is that which will be proper exercise for the patience and faith of the saints—patience under the prospect of such great sufferings, and faith in the prospect of so glorious a deliverance.
We can now see much more by the birth of the United States, which I see as the second beast coming up out of the earth, with two horns as a lamb and speaketh like a dragon. For we have two horns of a lamb and our founding fathers proclaimed us to be a Christian nation. One nation under God with liberty and justice for all. Formed with a bill of rights and constitution based on Biblical laws and principles. We now know we were usurped by a cabal speaking great things in secret like a dragon and were always under the rule of the crown in secret corporate dealings paying tribute for our right to govern ourselves. A republic which was pulled and picked at little by little by the dragon’s forces of evil.
The first beast before him again we now know was the same power we fought to liberate ourselves from. The British Crown that was the greatest empire on the earth and in league with the House of Rothschilds bankers who were out to rule the world and own everything in it. Still conquering under the Papal decree of Dum Diversas and going forward building what would become the largest empire in the history of the entire world.
This verse opens up many avenues…making fire come down from heaven on the earth…this leads to the atomic bomb, nuclear bomb, Space Based Weaponry, Direct Energy Weapons…all manner of destructive weapons of force.
14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
After world war II the beast formed the United Nations and the transference of power went to those controlling this image…that represented all the nations in league with it. The truth is this United Nations was the designs of the same cabal who set out to rule the world. It was Rockefeller who donated the ground they built their house of nations upon in Manhatten in New York City. Again we see the dragons power structure of the ones who follow the lusts of the world and desire to rule over all the nations. This is the eighth who is of the seven and goes into perdition which is destruction. Revelations 17:11 “And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.” (Perdition means destruction). So there is a forming of a great beast that consists of all the heads, and all the empires.)
Review of the Beast in Revelation 17:9 -10
“9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.”
The seven heads are empires – mountains are governments and the woman is the whore of Babylon representing the Jezebel spirit of deception and all manner of false worship- of fallen angels and Baal, false gods and goddesses. Worshipers of that which is not of God, twisted doctrine and all manner of philosophy and vain deceits. Jezebel Spirit and How it Operates & How To Protect Yourself (bible-knowledge.com)
And there are seven Kings, five have fallen, one is and the other is not yet come.
At the time of John there had been five great empires which were, in their order: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo Persia, and Greece. These five empires/heads had come and gone. The one that is was Rome. They were presently under the dictates of the Roman Empire. John was told that another empire was yet to come after Rome. And when that one came it would continue a short space. The seventh empire was Great Britain which was also the largest empire in the history of the world. It dwindled after WWII and the United States of America became the major nation and most powerful in the world.
There is also another beast to come.. Revelations 17:11 “And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.” (Perdition means destruction). So there is a forming of a great beast that consists of all the heads, and all the empires.)
The United Nations is the eight that is of the seven and was formed after WWII to oversee the nations and be a world power and establish world laws and courts to oversee the nations who have given their allegiance to it ever since it was formed. We now know that the same cabal who governs the deep state, also governs the UN. President Trump actually pulled us out of many of its’ programs. It is weakening and losing its’ influence especially with the COVID RESET to a new world order that people are now resisting. We are now exposing the horrors of it and its’ hidden secret past.
We are seeing this in action as the United States soon became the largest and most powerful nation and Great Britain dwindled after World War II giving up it’s empire allowing the nations to govern themselves while still collecting tribute to the crown. The independence of the nations was a covering that looked like sovereignty of nations, but was always guided by the Crown which was governed by the Bank of London, not the Monarchy. It is the secret cabal that has sat and made decisions in groves and other world meetings such as the World Economic Council and Foreign Council on Relations, DAVOS, the G-7, G-20, the think tanks of the Club of Rome, all the New World Order meetings that the great merchants of the earth sit and plot, and plan what direction to take the nations in order to achieve their one world order. These decide who shall be Presidents and leaders of nations, these anoint who shall succeed in their monopolies of merchandising and who shall be great among them. These are the ones who make and break nations. Which will be toppled and how that shall be done to deceive the masses of the people. These are the same ones who control Big Pharma, Big food, industry, economics, the world monetary system, wars, false flags, education, all things of the world. These are the ones who devised world wide plans to depopulate the earth and turn God’s creation into transhuman beings with no spiritual connection, only mind and body, among all manner of other evils. These are the ones who devised their RESET to rule the world and have forced toxic jabs, mandates, and jabs on innocent people in a plot to kill, steal and destroy nations from within.
This beastly world system operates on those who do the deeds of it and agree to do these deeds. It is their system. The mark in their right hand is the deeds to serve it and the mark on their foreheads is the willingness to support it. This mark is the mark of their wealth and gold that Karl Marx so wrote about. The wealth that causes man to sell his soul for a price. This was and always has been how the dragon tempts and controls man…gold that brings man power, fame, and all it can buy. It always has been and it is how Rothschild has conquered and controlled the nations in the world and how he has controlled rulers, kings, presidents, and all those who labor and toil in the mills, in shops, in all the world. It is not a literal mark or a bar code, it is a method of buying, selling, who gets rich and who goes broke. Who can buy and who gets boycotted, and sanctioned. Who gets to win in the stock market and who loses. These decide what silver, gold, copper and anything precious is worth while at the same time giving people paper fiat money to spend. These are the ones who control the wealth in the Dragon’s world.
Last but not least, let us look at the wisdom and the number of a man, and his number is 666. This points to the wisdom of the man Solomon. This scripture directly cross references with him. It is said that the nations of the world paid tribute to Solomon yearly paying him tribute of 666 talents of gold yearly. It is written that there was no man as wise, nor as rich as Solomon ever, nor shall there ever be another as wise and as rich as he was.
1 Kings 10:14 says, “the weight of gold which Solomon received every year was 666 talents of gold, besides what came from tradesmen, from the traffic of the merchants, and from all the kings of Arabia and the governors of the regions.” (Jewish Study Bible).
1Kings: 23 So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom.
We also see when we look back at the law for kings in Deuteronomy 17, it prohibits the king from multiplying horses and chariots, wives, and wealth. This is exactly what Solomon did in 1 Kings 10-11. Chapter ten begins by commending his great wisdom, but then steps through his decline – that is, he begins violating the rules for kings by multiplying gold (666 talents a year), multiplying horses and chariots, and finally multiplying wives who turn his heart away from following Yahweh. He sets up centers of false worship for all the foreign gods of his wives and even sacrifices to Baal. So, the number 666 is associated with Solomon in his fall, his abuse of power, and his turning away from true worship of Yahweh.
Is this not the mark of the beast that turns a man, even one such as Solomon astray? Yes. It is as Jesus said, easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. Jesus said you can’t worship mammon and God, you will hate the one and love the other. Jesus said, buy from me Gold tried in the fire. He said that for a reason.
Solomon got caught up in the ways of the world system… as it states in detail in 1Kings 11 and God was not pleased with him and took away the kingdom.
1 Kings 11:11 “Wherefore the Lord said unto Solomon, Forasmuch as this is done of thee, and thou hast not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I have commanded thee, I will surely rend the kingdom from thee, and will give it to thy servant. 12 Notwithstanding in thy days I will not do it for David thy father’s sake: but I will rend it out of the hand of thy son.”
Gold and the riches of the world are the mark of the beastly kingdom of the Dragon and his world…it always has been and it always will be. Weather it is fiat dollars, crypto currency, charge cards, debit cards, government cards, paper checks, ration tickets, gold, silver or copper…whatever the currency is that allows you to buy and sell, this is the mark of the beast that rules this world.
Keep on pressing into the Kingdom. Press, press, press! Pray unceasing…God has already won.
