Study on the Book of Revelation: The Coming “Alien” Antichrist and Faked “Alien” Invasion

Revelation Study: the Mystery of the Beast, the Strong Delusion, Abaddon/Nimrod the Alien Antichrist, Are the Seals Opening Now? Doc

This is the main Revelation study that is prerequisite for the other Bible prophecy studies on this site. This study was a quick summary I did to get out the major concepts. I am working on breaking it into sections, and expanding it into several more thorough articles. But for now it can be downloaded as a Doc file, or read below.

This timeline goes with the study: Timeline of the Book of Revelation(jpg), which also goes with most of the other prophecy studies on this site.

 

The Book of Revelation

The book of Revelation is the major book in the Bible that is completely devoted to specific prophecy about the end-times. This book of prophesy was given for the express purpose of showing us what was coming,

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John:” Rev 1:1

As such, it would make sense that the book of Revelation should be weighted with primary importance when it comes to fitting together end times prophecies. If end times prophecies in the rest of the Bible were enough by themselves to explain the end times, then there may have been no need for the book of Revelation. But Revelation seems to have been meant to give added detail, and to provide an outline for the order of events to come. As the main book in the Bible devoted solely to end times prophecy, it makes sense that the book of Revelation should be weighted with primary importance on outlining the events to come, the order they come in, and how they tie to other passages in the Bible about end times prophecy.

To make an analogy, the same sort of weight should be given to the book of Genesis when it comes to the story of the Creation. There are many passages of scripture throughout the rest of the Bible which mention events that took place in the Creation story in Genesis 1-2. And in understanding the story of Creation, we rely on Genesis 1-2, giving it primary weight and importance. We do not try to make Genesis 1-2 fit together by using other passages in the Bible that mention Creation, but rather we fit together other passages in the Bible about Creation by using Genesis 1-2, weighting Genesis 1-2 with primary importance. It makes sense that the book of Revelation should be used similarly, and weighted with primary importance.

 

The Keys to Understanding the Book of Revelation

The first thing necessary to understanding the book of Revelation is to understand that you cannot figure it out without Jesus Christ’s help. Only Jesus Christ is worthy to break the 7 seals so that the scroll can be opened and be read. I believe the first thing necessary is to admit you cannot figure this out without Jesus Christ giving you revelation, as He is the only one worthy to read the scroll, so you must rely on Him and ask Him to help you to understand, to give you understanding, as He Alone is Worthy and knows.

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.” James 1:5

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake [as they were] moved by the Holy Ghost.” 2 Pet 1:20-21

(If you have not read Part 1, the Methodology paper, please stop and read it first.)

The second thing necessary to understand the book of Revelation is to believe that Jesus wrote it for us to understand it. The book claims the prophecy was given to show Jesus’ servants what was going to come to pass, and so it must be believed to be true that Jesus wants us to understand it. You need to believe Jesus wants to talk to you through His book that He wrote, for all of us. What is necessary is to believe that Jesus Christ wanted you, and also wanted all other Christians over the last 2000 years, to understand the book of Revelation, and wrote it for you to understand, and for them to understand as well. You need to believe that all Christians over the last 2000 years stood to benefit from the book of Revelation, and that prophesy was given to them as well in this book, and information which also would be pertinent to their lives at times.

Blessed [is] he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time [is] at hand. Rev 1:3

Jesus said the time is at hand, and so we can know Revelation was meant for all believers from the time the book was given, on through to the present. Jesus specifies that people are blessed by reading revelation, and also that they are blessed by hearing.

 

The Primer – Hearing the Book of Revelation

In the movie Contact, people receive an encoded message at a SETI station. The message is intelligent, of prime numbers. When the signal is filtered a couple times, diagrams emerge of complex symbols, equations, and information. But the scientists cannot seem to make the pages of information line up correctly. That is, until someone finds a “primer” located on the edge of each page, which makes the pages line up in a three-dimensional model. The “primer” allows them to learn the alphabet which is needed for understanding the basic structure of the information, and from there they are able to read and piece together what the message says, and in order. The alphabet consists of a series of true and false statements, which allow them to learn the structure of the information.

The book of Revelation also contains a “primer”, the basic thing needed to be understood to decode the message. This consists of a handful of true statements which need to be accepted as true, in order to understand the information in the book of Revelation. Once these true statements are known and accepted as true, the basic structure and outline of the book can be understood in order. And what follows logically from these true statements can open the rest of the book up into better understanding, and in order.

The “primer” to the book of Revelation is found in verse 3.

Blessed [is] he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time [is] at hand. Rev 1:3

Jesus makes it clear in Rev 1:3 that He wants all Christians to “hear” the book of Revelation. This is the first big important thing that you have to do, is to hear all the things you were meant to hear, and also understand that other Christians throughout the last 2000 years were meant to hear them as well. The places which we are all meant to hear are pointed out specifically, and are:

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God. Rev 2:7 (Church of Ephesus)

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. Rev 2:11 (Church of Smyrna)

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth [it]. Rev 2:17 (Church of Pergamos)

And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Rev 2:26-29 (Church of Thyatira)

He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Rev 3:5-6 (Church of Sardis)

Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Rev 3:12-13 (Church of Philadelphia)

To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. Rev 3:21-22 (Church of Laodicea)

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. And 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. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. Rev 13:1-10

Who has an ear? As a generalization, all people have ears, and all Christians have ears. You have an ear, I have an ear, and all Christians over the last 2000 years have had an ear. This is how we can know these are the 8 places all Christians were meant to hear.

Also, there is one instruction from Jesus similar to “he hath an ear let him hear”, which is also found in Revelation 13, and ties to Rev 13:1-20, about the Beast.

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six. Rev 13:18

These verses together form the “primer” for the book of Revelation. It is essential to understand that all Christians over the past 2000 years were meant to be able to personally apply every single one of these verses into their own life and time. These truths are essential to accept as true, and equally true over the last 2000 years, in order to understand the book:

1. Every letter to the churches was meant for every Christian in a way that the information given is personally applicable, to give relevant information to every Christian who ever might read and “hear” the book of Revelation.

2. The information on the Beast was meant to be personally applicable to every Christian who might read and “hear” the book of Revelation.

3. Any Christian with “understanding” would be able to count the number of the Beast, in their time, and potentially valid true calculations were possible for any Christian to arrive at who might “hath understanding”.

From these verses two topics emerge, the Churches, and the Beast whose number is 666.

 

The 7 Churches

Let’s look at the topic of the churches first. Now some logic has to be applied.

Jesus specified that it is true that all of the letters to all of the churches were meant for all Christians to hear over the last 2000 years. If this is true, then what are the implications?

1. The letters were for the 7 actual churches of Asia existing when Revelation was written, and applied to Christians in those churches at that time. This leaves me and you out, so there must be a second meaning.

2. This is a list of the 7 main problems any one church might have over the last 2000 years, with every church facing 1 of these 7 problems to be overcome. If this meaning is correct, then you or I might be in a church with 1 of these seven problems. But if that is the case, then the other 6 letters wouldn’t be targeted to you or I, but only the 1 letter addressing the problem our personal church has. As all 7 letters must be for every believer, there must be a third meaning.

3. If the letters were historical or prophetic, and spoke of a larger pattern of church events happening through church history, or the future of the church, then these would describe a church age or period in time. In this, every Christian would find themself to be living in a Church Age which applied to them. Christians could see the past Church Ages as having historic meaning, and future Church Ages as having prophetic future meaning. In this every Christian would have something to hear and understand about the letters. Also, this would mean that these Church Ages would cover all of the time from when Revelation was written, up to the events of the opening of the Seals (which comes next.)

And so the “primer” reveals that each letter to the churches is a Church Age, and that all Christians could find each of the letters to have historical, present, and future prophetic significance that applied to them personally, from their point in time.

Something else that is helpful in understanding Revelation is to seek out what God is showing or has shown other Christians about the book, as the body has many parts, and many may be given prophetic information or understanding. Jesus may give different pieces to different people, and seeing what He has shared with someone else can be very helpful. Often the people Jesus reveals things to are not prominent teachers or well-known. But today, they may have web pages you can find if you look for them. If someone else has been given some insight, you can learn from the teachings they have already developed out in more depth. I learned much more on the Church Ages from “Brother Tom”. Much more can be read on this here:

www.midnightcry.net/PDF/Seven%20Letters%20to%20Seven%20Churches.pdf or

http://www.midnightcry.net/Seven_Letters.htm

This explains that there are 4 churches active today, who have existed parallel since their coming into being at the start of their individual Church Ages. The different church Ages are demarcated by the inception of each church coming into being. Three passed out of existence, but 4 exist today, coming up into the fulfillment of the rest of the prophecy. The Catholic Church is Thyatira; the Protestant churches of the Reformation are Sardis, then also the church of Philadelphia known by their brotherly love, and the church of Laodicea known by their riches and blindness. And we are living in the last Church Age of Laodicea.

 

The Beast and his number 666

The second topic which emerged, which every Christian in the last 2000 years was meant to “hear”, is that of the Beast, and for those with understanding, also his number.

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. And 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. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. Rev 13:1-10

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six. Rev 13:18

In order for this prophecy to apply personally to every Christian in the last 2000 years, this means that the meaning of the Beast, whatever he represents, must span over 2000 years. We know this must be true that every Christian was meant to “hear” this as applying to them personally, the same as with the churches, as we all “have an ear”.

In Old Testament prophecy there are many times in which symbolic imagery of prophecy is first given, and then explained. It is very important to note that the only new symbolic imagery that is specifically explained in the book of Revelation is regarding the Beast.

“But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. 

The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition. “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” Rev 17:7-18

There are a couple things to note about this passage:

1. A woman (Mystery Babylon) is introduced and tied to the mystery of the Beast whom she rides, and the explanation of the mystery of the Beast is tied to the explanation of the mystery of Mystery Babylon.

2. The word here for “wisdom” is the same as in Rev 13:18, and so these two verses about the Beast are tied together. Both the mystery of the beast, and of his number, requires wisdom to unravel, and the important point is that any Christian over the last 2000 years who “hath wisdom” would be able to do so. So the Mystery of the Beast must span over 2000 years of time, to be able to apply to any Christian who “hath wisdom” over the last 2000 years.

3. Because the mystery of the Beast is tied to the mystery of Mystery Babylon, and the mystery of the Beast spans over the last 2000 years, this means that any Christian who “hath wisdom” could also understand the mystery of Mystery Babylon along with the mystery of the Beast, spanning over the last 2000 years.

Between Revelation 13 and 17, there are several things that can be known about the “Beast” with 7 heads and 10 horns, which are descriptive.

1. It is against God

2. It accepts worship

3. It persecutes the saints, even to death

4. It has power over many people

5. It has a city associated with him who reigns over the kings of the earth

6. Its meaning spans over 2000 years

Christians over the last 2000 years were meant to “hear” that the Beast would be like this, and that they must resist worshipping him, even to the point of imprisonment and martyrdom. This is the general meaning, which all Christians could take to heart and apply in their lives, over the last 2000 years. But there is more to understanding the Beast, which requires wisdom, and also there is a mystery to be unraveled about him, which gives more specific information.

In summary, all of these verses about the mystery of the Beast are interconnected in such a way to show that the mystery of the Beast spans over 2000 years, and is cyclic (repeating and broad-sweeping) and meant for all Christians over the last 2000 years.

“If any man have an ear, let him hear.” Is Rev 13:9 which describes the Beast. This means any Christian over the last 2000 years was meant to find this information about the Beast to be personally applicable. This verse about the Beast ties to Rev 13:18 which is also about the Beast,

“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.”

“He who hath understanding” follows the same pattern of “he who hath an ear let him hear”. The same as “he who hath an ear let him hear” means that it was personally applicable to all Christians over the last 2000 years, “he who hath understanding” means that all Christians who “hath understanding” over the last 2000 years would be able to count the number of the Beast in a way that was personally applicable to them in their time (and ours).

Because the Beast is personally applicable to every Christian over the last 2000 years, and because the number of the Beast has been able to be counted by every Christian over the last 2000 years who “hath understanding”… it follows that the “mystery” about the Beast also has been able to be understood by any Christian over the last 2000 years who “hath understanding”. And because the mystery of the woman who rides the Beast is tied to the mystery of the Beast, it therefore follows that any Christian who “hath understanding” over the last 2000 years could be able to understand the mystery of “Mystery Babylon” as well. And as such, this means that the Mystery of the Beast and the mystery of Mystery Babylon must also have a meaning that spans over 2000 years.

 

The Mystery of the Beast

“But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.

The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition. “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” Rev 17:7-18

Let’s start with the time aspect of this mystery of the Beast, which is that this must apply to all Christians over the last 2000 years. The part here that highlights the time aspect is

“5 have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come…”

At the time Revelation was written, 5 heads of the Beast “had fallen”, which meant 5 heads were in the past, and “one is” meant that only one head was in the present, and another head had “not yet come”, but would in the future. Logically, this shows a succession, a series, in which only one head of the Beast exists at a time, as the head in the present, at any particular point in time. This means the meaning of the heads has to cover a long period spanning over time. Not only that, but the meanings of the heads has to span further back than 2000 years, as 5 heads had already fallen prior to 2000 years ago, when the book of Revelation was written.

The woman mentioned sits on the Beast, and therefore seems to sit on only one head at a time. The passage says that the woman “sits” in the present tense (of this word in the Greek) on 7 mountains. The woman is a city, and she is sitting on 7 mountains, and sitting on the head of the Beast which is active in the present. This is the “one is” head of the Beast. And this is all at the time when Revelation was written.

At the time Revelation was written, Rome was well known (and still is) as the city on 7 hills. As such Mystery Babylon was presently sitting on the 7 hills of Rome. This means that at the time Revelation was written, Mystery Babylon was Rome.

As Mystery Babylon at the time was the city Rome, then the active head of the Beast she was sitting on must relate to Rome, the seat of the Roman Empire. This could mean that the Beast represented the Roman king, or the Roman Empire itself. Which is it?

The heads of the Beast are described as seven “kings”, and seven “mountains”. Besides the 7 hills of Rome, the second meaning of the seven “mountains” is that in scripture a mountain can symbolize a kingdom. For instance this is seen in Jer 51:24-25, where the kingdom of Babylon is called a “mountain”:

“And I will render unto Babylon and to all the inhabitants of Chaldea all their evil that they have done in Zion in your sight, saith the LORD. Behold, I [am] against thee, O destroying mountain, saith the LORD, which destroyest all the earth: and I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and roll thee down from the rocks, and will make thee a burnt mountain.”

Mystery Babylon sits on 7 heads, which are mountains or kingdoms, and also are kings, so she sits on 7 heads which are both kingdoms and kings. As such, at the time Revelation was written, the presently active head of the Beast (the 6th head) was both the Roman Empire, and the Roman Emperor. And at the time Revelation was written, Mystery Babylon was the city Rome.

We know the Beast must personally relate to every Christian over the last 2000 years because of “if any man hath an ear, let him hear”. And that the 6th head of the Beast represents both the Roman Empire and Emperor is how this is so. The Roman Empire lasted a long time, with many Emperors, or other rulers in power who later came to persecute Christians.

What about the 5 heads who “had fallen”, and the 7th head that had “not yet come”?

“…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. And 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” Rev 13

The description of the Beast in the book of Revelation matches a combination of the Beasts seen in the book of Daniel.

“The first [was] like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and [it had] three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it [was] diverse from all the beasts that [were] before it; and it had ten horns.” Daniel 7

There are 4 beasts resembling a lion, bear, leopard, and a beast with ten-horns, mentioned in Daniel 7. The first 3 beasts correspond to the kingdoms of Babylon, Medio-Persia, and Greece. These same kingdoms are represented in Daniel 2 as parts of a statue. The last part of the statue is legs of iron, which turn into 10 toes of both iron and clay, which is a “divided kingdom”. And the Beast in Revelation also resembles the 4th Beast of Daniel 7, which had 10 horns, which represents both Rome, and the ten toes of iron and clay of the “divided kingdom” which was to come after Rome.

Additionally, as the beast in Revelation is a conglomeration of the beasts in Daniel 7, it is interesting to note that in Daniel 7 the interpretation of the vision calls the same beast both a kingdom, and a king.

“These great beasts, which are four, [are] four kings, [which] shall arise out of the earth.” Dan 7:17

Here each of the beasts is called a “king”, the word “melek”. So each beast is a king.

But then also, “Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.” Dan 7:23

Here the 4th beast is called a “kingdom”, the word “malkuw”. This means that this 4th beast is specifically called both a “king” and a “kingdom”, and so it represents both. As the beast in Revelation is a conglomeration of the beasts in Daniel 7, it is very fitting that the heads of the beast in Revelation represent both “kings” and “kingdoms”.

(Much more information on this can be found on the internet, such as Laverna Patterson’s article and pictures here: http://www.teachinghearts.org/dre17hdan07.html and the picture is from here: http://www.godssabbathtruth.com/charts.html (Please note I do not agree with everything on these pages, but the pictures, charts, and some of the information is good.))

The point is that in the book of Revelation the Beast’s 7 heads and 10 horns (in one sense) are representing a conglomeration of all the kingdoms represented in Daniel 7. This is another way in which it can be confirmed the heads of the Beast span over a long period of time, which is actually much longer than the last 2000 years.

We can know the past Empire of the third head of the Beast is Babylon, the fourth is Medio-Persia, the fifth is Greece, the sixth is Roman, and the seventh is the “divided kingdom” of Rome’s 10 toes. At the time Revelation was written, the Roman Empire was the kingdom in power, and the 6th of the Beast described by “one is”. The city which was represented by Mystery Babylon at the time was Rome itself, as she was presently sitting on 7 mountains (hills). But before that, 5 other heads had been active, these 5 mountains or kingdoms, 5 kings of note, and 5 different cities had represented Mystery Babylon in the past. One of these was the city of Babylon in the Babylonian kingdom.

The first two heads of the Beast are not revealed in Daniel, but we are looking for world-ruling governments and kings, especially who oppressed God’s people, and thus fit the pattern of the rest of the heads of the Beast. Looking in the Bible, we can gather the first two heads were Egypt and the Pharaoh, and also Assyria and Sargon II. (http://www.scripturessay.com/article.php?cat=&id=431)

 

Here is a list of the 7 Heads of the Beast (kings and kingdoms) and Mystery Babylons:

1. Head: Egyptian and Pharaoh, Mystery Babylon: likely Memphis

2. Head: Assyrian and Sargon II (through his son Sennacherib), Mystery Babylon: Nineveh

3. Head: Babylonian and Nebuchadnezzar, Mystery Babylon: Babylon

4. Head: Medio-Persian and Xerxes, Mystery Babylon: Pasargadae (?)

5. Head: Greek and Antiochus Epiphanies IV, Mystery Babylon: in Macedonia (?)

6. Head: Roman and Nero, Mystery Babylon: Rome

7. Head: Divided Kingdom of 10 Toes/Horns (Illuminati/Vatican?) and Hitler, Mystery Babylon: NY/DC Megalopolis

And from this we can know that the Heads of the Beast in Revelation represent both kings and kingdoms throughout history and over the last 2000 years, and that Mystery Babylon has represented whatever city was these king/kingdoms’ ruling seat of power.

The Beast During the Church Ages

Relevant to the Church Ages, there have been 2 heads that the Christian church have lived through. The first Christians have known is the 6th head, that of the Roman Empire, and its kings/rulers, based from Mystery Babylon in Rome.

The second is the 7th head of the Divided Kingdom of the ten toes of iron and clay, and all of its kings. That the 10 toes are half iron and half clay shows a division of two, which firstly represented the Eastern and Western Roman Empires which existed after about 395 AD. But the division of 2 also seems to represent the two factions which developed control over the kings of the earth after the Roman Empire fell completely in 1453 AD.

The 2 factions which have developed control since then over the 10 toes would seem to be found in two circles of organizations, one being the iron Papacy, and secret societies and order related to the Roman Catholic Church. The second would be the clay of the secret societies related to the Occult, Masonry, and the Illuminati, and Zionism, distinct from the Papacy. Those involved in these groups, and these groups themselves, have much wealth and influence. It would seem that the ruling city of the 7th head is in the strong arm of the 7th kingdom, the United States of America, which was founded by many Masons, and many believe is essentially run by the Illuminati, despite all public appearance. If this is so, then it seems the 7th main city that Mystery Babylon sits on now is encompassed by the NYC/DC megalopolis area. However, the kings who represent the 7th head empire are many, and it may be that some are not publicly known, nor the positions of power behind the scenes. I am not sure as to who in particular can be identified as the 7th king of note from the 7th kingdom, but it seems likely it was Hitler.

We can know this scenario above is in fact the case, because these conclusions are based on matching up the Biblical prophecies of the divided kingdom, with what can be seen today. The Divided Kingdom which has ten toes in Daniel 2, and the last beast in Daniel 7 with 10 horns, and the 7th Head of the Beast in Revelation, must match up with what can be seen taking place today, in the time in which the 7th head kingdom must be in existence. Research into secret societies, the Illuminati, and who has the money and power the world today can make this meaning clear, even if the divisions are confusing.

Perhaps the most confusing part is that the 10 horns of the final beast in Daniel 7 both refer to the 10 toes of the statue in Daniel 2 of the Divided Kingdom, but also the 10 horns in Daniel 7 refer to the 10 horns which are 10 kings of the 10 horns of the Beast in Revelation. These 10 horns/toes have both a meaning that spans over time in the 7th Head of the Beast kingdom, and also the 10 horns have a second meaning of 10 actual kings who will rule in the final days.

And so this is the broad historical meaning of the 7 heads and 10 horns over the course of the Church Ages. The Church has suffered both under the 6th head of the Beast, of the Roman Empire, and also under the 7th head of the Beast of the Divided Kingdom. In truth, the Beast has a meaning that has personally applied to all Christians over the last 2000 years, which is why Jesus said, “if any man hath an ear let him hear”. And so in this way, Christians over the last 2000 years “who hath an ear” have been able to personally apply the meaning of Beast to themselves. This is both through his 6th and 7th heads in the sense of kingdoms, and in the many kings or rulers who have persecuted Christians over the Church Ages.

Besides this, there is also that “he who hath understanding” has been able to count the number of the Beast over the past 2000 years. Throughout this time period there have been many powerful rulers and persecutors of the church whose name or title of their position equated to 666.

In Hebrew, Herod was often spelled HORODOS. In the Hebrew alpha-numerical code, O is equal 6. So Herod’s name would read h6r6d6s. Caesar Nero (Neron Kaeser in the Roman) (“nrwn qsr” in Aramaic) equals to 666 in Aramaic. Nero was known for early Christian persecution, 54-68 AD. I have also read that the name of Diocles Augustus equals 666. He is also called Diocletus; another Roman emperor known for persecuting Christians early 300 AD. The title of the Roman Catholic Pope, V I C A R I U S F I L I I D E I, is equal to 666 in Roman numerals. This title means “Vicar of the Son of God”.

(Also see http://cosmos2000.chez.com/Numbers/666_Ancients.html)

In this, it is possible for “he who hath understanding” to have calculated the number of the Beast for the past 2000 years. This meaning has applied to all Christians over the last 2000 years. This is because the number 666, like some computer virus running loose in a system, has in fact repeatedly been applicable to men who represented the Beast, the persecutor against the saints, or an evil representative out of the kingdoms (6th and 7th heads) of the Beast, over the last 2000 years. And so Christians over the last 2000 years all have “had an ear” and were meant to “hear” to resist the Beast in all his persecuting rulers, even under persecution to death, over the last 2000 years. And also those “with understanding” have been able to calculate the number of his name, 666, this whole time.

(Implications: all those people in the past calculating 666 who “got it wrong”, did not necessarily get it wrong, as 666 was just as applicable in their time as in ours, or the end.)

 

The Final Beast

However, in the book of Revelation the Beast with 7 heads and 10 horns is described to personally take actions that seem to have a one-time-only final fulfillment in the end times, just before Jesus returns. This shows that the Beast with 7 heads and 10 horns must have another meaning, which is that the entire imagery of the Beast is also symbolic for 1 individual who will play a dramatic role in the final fulfillment of the book of Revelation, which culminates in Jesus Christ’s return.

It is in this context of the final Beast representing an individual, in which Revelation refers to the 8th king, who has his own kingdom, with 10 horns who are kings that reign under him, as well as also mentioning the Beast from the Earth (the false prophet).

If we eliminate the non-relevant verses, which have been explained, and their mystery unraveled, what is said about this final 8th king?

“And the dragon 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. And 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. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear.

He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.”  (Rev 13:1-10)

“But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.

The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is. “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition. “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” Rev 17:7-18

The most applicable verses are:

“The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is…. The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition… And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.”

There is a mystery to the final Beast, this individual, which requires understanding the rest that has been discussed here, in order to see. All of the verses which have already been fulfilled need to be set aside, to arrive at the above specifics about the 8th final king who is the Beast personified, in the time of the book of Revelation’s end time fulfillment.

There are several specifics given about this 8th king who is the Beast:

1. This individual who is the 8th king was, is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit, and eventually go to destruction

2. Everyone on earth will marvel at his appearance, except God’s people

3. The 8th king is “of” the 7 heads (kings or kingdoms) the word here for “of” means “out of, from”, so he is distinct from, but still “of” the 7 heads

4. It will seem to the people of the world as if one of his 7 heads (kings or kingdoms) had died, but came back to life

 

It is very specific that this 8th and final king comes out of “the bottomless pit”. A cross comparison of all the passages in Revelation will show that there is only one king mentioned in the book of Revelation to have ascended out of the bottomless pit. This is a fallen angel named Abaddon or Apollyon. (Also See A Survey of the Abyss in the Old and New Testaments)

“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power… And they had a king in their presence, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.” Rev 9:1-3,11

This is the only mention of a king who comes out of “the bottomless pit” in Revelation. This is the 8th king, and this individual is represented by the entire Beast with 7 heads and 10 horns. This is who the world will be astonished to see. This king is a fallen angel named Abaddon or Apollyon. He is the one who “was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit”. This fallen angel Abaddon is the Beast from the Sea.

I first learned of this idea reading on the website of Bryan Huie, who has several articles, dating as far back as 1997, pertaining to this topic of the angel Abaddon, and showing this in more detail.  Original: http://web.archive.org/web/20040128080735/http://users.aristotle.net/~bhuie/abaddon.htm More Recently Updated:  http://www.herealittletherealittle.net/index.cfm?page_name=Abaddon

The big question is, what is the “bottomless pit”? The meaning here is “lowest pit” or “lowest dungeon”. According to 2 Pet and Jude there are sinful angels imprisoned in a place called “Tartaros”, awaiting the judgment. The word “Tartaros” describes the lowest dungeon of the underworld. Essentially the Bible teaches there are fallen angels imprisoned in the earth, under the deepest depths of the ocean, in the lowest parts, in a dungeon. For a Bible study on this topic, see A Survey of the Abyss in the Old and New Testaments.

Abaddon was one of the sinful angels of Genesis 6, who was imprisoned in the bottomless pit (also called Tartaros) as told in Eze 31. The locusts released are the rest of these imprisoned angels being let loose. The angel king in their presence is the Beast from the Sea with 7 heads and 10 horns, who is released along with them onto the earth. The main character in the book of Revelation who is referred to as the Beast, who the world will worship, who will have authority for 42 months, is the fallen angel Abaddon. Abaddon once “was” in the time before the Flood (Gen 6), and “is not” while imprisoned in the bottomless pit (2 Pet, Eze 31, Jude 1). And this fallen angel king Abaddon will “ascend out of the bottomless pit” when he is released. He is said to be released with the other Genesis-6 angels, who appear in the form of horse/locusts, in Revelation 9. And so when the mystery of the Beast in the book of Revelation is further unraveled, he turns out to be the fallen angel Abaddon/Apollyon, who is released in the 5th Trumpet. The Beast Abaddon is the one who the world will worship, who the false prophet will work for, and who will make everyone take his Mark, of 666. Cross referenced in other scriptures, the fallen angel Abaddon is the “person of sin, son of destruction” in 2 Thes 2, and the “antichrist” in 1 John 2 and 4. The Beast Abaddon is the Antichrist.

However, there is still more to the mystery of the Beast, as there still are questions that have been left unanswered. What is the meaning is of him being “of the 7? What is the meaning that it will seem to the people of the world as if one of his 7 heads (kings or kingdoms) had died, but came back to life?

 

The Mystery of the Beast’s Head with the Deadly Wound Which Comes Back to Life

The Beast had a head which seemed to have had a deadly wound, but came back to life. The heads represent past kings or kingdoms. Which of the seven heads (kings or kingdoms of the past) is this? The Bible specifies in the Old Testament prophecies that the person who fills the role of the final Antichrist in prophecy is sometimes referred to as the Assyrian.

“That I will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon my mountains tread him under foot: then shall his yoke depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.  This [is] the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this [is] the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. Isa 14:25-26

“For thus hath the LORD spoken unto me, Like as the lion and the young lion roaring on his prey, when a multitude of shepherds is called forth against him, [he] will not be afraid of their voice, nor abase himself for the noise of them: so shall the LORD of hosts come down to fight for mount Zion, and for the hill thereof. As birds flying, so will the LORD of hosts defend Jerusalem; defending also he will deliver [it; and] passing over he will preserve it. Turn ye unto [him from] whom the children of Israel have deeply revolted. For in that day every man shall cast away his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which your own hands have made unto you [for] a sin. Then shall the Assyrian fall with the sword, not of a mighty man; and the sword, not of a mean man, shall devour him: but he shall flee from the sword, and his young men shall be discomfited.” Isa 31:4-8

The scene of the Lord of hosts coming down and fighting for Mt. Zion and the hill thereof is paralleled in Zechariah 14. The hill of Mt. Zion encompasses the Mt. of Olives also (see http://s2.hubimg.com/u/254785_f520.jpg).

“Then the LORD will go forth and fight against those nations, as when He fights on a day of battle. In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south. You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him! In that day there will be no light; the luminaries will dwindle. For it will be a unique day which is known to the LORD, neither day nor night, but it will come about that at evening time there will be light. And in that day living waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter. And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only one. Zech 14:3-9

This is a scene of the return of Jesus Christ, who will fight for Jerusalem, which is located between the Mt. of Olives and Mt. Zion, both on the same “hill” or range of mountain peaks, with Jerusalem nestled in the middle. Therefore the Beast Abaddon that Jesus battles against at His return is referred to as the Assyrian in these passages.

(For much more information see my more detailed expanded study on the Day of the Lord, the Assyrian Abaddon, and this Revelation timeline:  http://paradoxbrown.com/the-day-of-the-lord-revelation-timeline.htm/)

And so we can know that the head with the deadly wound which seemed to come back to life is Assyria. The Assyrian who is mentioned in Old Testament prophecy fills the role of the “Antichrist”, who is Abaddon in Revelation.

But who is the Assyrian in specific? The second head of the Beast was both a king and a kingdom. The kingdom was Assyria, and the king was Sargon II. Sargon II is the king who sent the lost ten tribes of Israel into the nations to be lost. There was also a Sargon I. But before this, the first Sargon was “Sargon of Akkad” or “Sargon the Great” in secular history, who corresponds to Nimrod in Biblical history. The ancient Assyrian empire, and both Sargon/Nimrod and Sargon II all died a long time ago. But what does the book of Revelation say will happen that will cause the world to wonder or be astonished?

“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.” Rev 17

What seems to be described here is a revival of the 2nd head of the Beast, which would seem to mean a revival of the Assyrian empire and the king Sargon II. But there was another king named Sargon I, and before this there was “Sargon of Akkad” who was Nimrod. So does this mean that the Beast Abaddon will claim to be Sargon II? Or might he claim to be Sargon of Akkad, who was Nimrod?

There are other times the “Assyrian” is mentioned in the Bible. These other passages may give some prophetic clues.

Behold the land of the Chaldeans; this people was not, [till] the Assyrian founded it for them that dwell in the wilderness: they set up the towers thereof, they raised up the palaces thereof; [and] he brought it to ruin.” Isa 23:13

The Assyrian is the Antichrist, and this is the fallen angel beast Abaddon. The Assyrian is said to have founded the land of the Chaldeans, and to have set up towers there. Who founded the land of the Chaldeans, which is Babylon? The land of “Shinar” is the same place that was later known as Babylon or Chaldea. Who does the Bible say founded Shinar/Babylon/Chaldea?

“Cush begot Nimrod; he began to be a mighty one on the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.” And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, Erech, Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. From that land he went to Assyria and built Nineveh, Rehoboth Ir, Calah, and Resen between Nineveh and Calah (that is the principal city).” Gen 10:8-12

The “Assyrian” founded the land of the Chaldeans. Nimrod founded the land of the Chaldeans. As such, the Bible indicates the Assyrian must be Nimrod. The second head of the Beast had the king Sargon II, there was also a Sargon I, and before this, Nimrod is also known as “Sargon of Akkad” or “Sargon the Great” in secular history, so this fits.

These verses altogether point to the Beast Abaddon is going to claim to be Nimrod. And the world is going to wonder and be astonished that Nimrod and the kingdom of ancient Assyria seemed to be dead, but have come back to life. Assyria is also said to have been founded by Nimrod showing he was Assyrian, and Assyria is again confirmed as the “land of Nimrod” in (what many consider) end times prophecy, where Nimrod is specifically mentioned along with the Assyrian. This passage also seems to be speaking of the return of Jesus Christ, and the battle of Armageddon.

“But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, [though] thou be little among the thousands of Judah, [yet] out of thee shall he come forth unto me [that is] to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth [have been] from of old, from everlasting. Therefore will he give them up, until the time [that] she which travaileth hath brought forth: then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel. And he shall stand and feed in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God; and they shall abide: for now shall he be great unto the ends of the earth. And this [man] shall be the peace, when the Assyrian shall come into our land: and when he shall tread in our palaces, then shall we raise against him seven shepherds, and eight principal men. And they shall waste the land of Assyria with the sword, and the land of Nimrod in the entrances thereof: thus shall he deliver [us] from the Assyrian, when he cometh into our land, and when he treadeth within our borders. Mic 5:6

It seems significant in this passage that the Assyrian is said to come into “our land” which refers to Israel, yet Jesus Christ seems to be battling the Assyrian in the “land of Nimrod” and “land of Assyria”. This could very well clearly be spelling out that the land of Israel would have become the land of Assyria, under the Antichrist Abaddon, and that the land of Israel is called “the land of Nimrod” because this is who Abaddon is claiming to be. The Assyrian is the fallen angel named Abaddon, the Beast who ascends out of the bottomless pit. But the Assyrian also is somehow Nimrod, as we saw in Isa 23, but Nimrod is a man who died a long time ago. As such it seems that the Beast Abaddon is going to claim to be Nimrod, even though he is not really Nimrod; a big lie.

The book of Revelation says that the 8th king is “of the 7”. As we have covered, in secular history Nimrod corresponds to the king Sargon of Akkad, also called Sargon the Great. The king of Assyria who made the lost ten tribes of Israel to be lost was Sargon II. Assyria and Sargon II was the 2nd head of the Beast. Because of this, it would be true that the 8th king Abaddon would be “of the 7” kings and kingdoms, because he will claim to be Nimrod who is Sargon of Akkad, and who founded Assyria, and as the second head was Sargon II and Assyria.

And it is also true that Abaddon is “of the 7”, even that he is like all of them, because Nimrod was the first to try to have a single kingdom ruling over the world, and rule from a single city, which was Babel, the prototype of Mystery Babylon in all its incarnations, and the prototype of the Beast in all his incarnations. The name “Nimrod” means “rebel”. The name Sargon means, “The true king, the legitimate king”, which is precisely anti-Christ, as Christ is the only true king. In this the mystery of the Beast seems to be unraveled in full, as with the mystery of the wounded head unraveled, we can know who the Beast will be, the fallen angel Abaddon, and who he will claim to be, Nimrod, which will be a lie.

From correctly understanding the 7 Church Ages and the Beast, and the mystery of the beast, his identity, and his claimed identity, we now have been “primed” to understand the rest of the book of Revelation. There is much information that stems from understanding the “primer” and the mystery of the Beast, information which naturally follows, patterns that have been established, that will prove very useful in understanding the rest of the book of Revelation and putting it into order. But before getting into the rest of the book of Revelation, and putting the events in order, there is something else which would seem useful to understand.

There really is only one question that remains, and that is how or why the world would believe this lie that the Beast Abaddon is Nimrod? How could this make any sense to the world, how could they believe this lie, and why would they? The answer to this question is in 2 Thessalonians, which mentions this particular big lie.

“And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thes 2:8-12

 

2 Thessalonians and the Beast Abaddon

We are going to cover 2 Thessalonians 2 starting from the beginning of the topic, to confirm that this passage is talking about the Beast Abaddon, and then move into explaining why and how people will believe the big lie that he is Nimrod.

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thes 2:3-4

Who is being referred to here as the “man of sin”? Could it perhaps be the “false prophet”, or is it clearly the fallen angel Beast Abaddon?

The false prophet in Revelation seems to be a man, whereas the Beast Abaddon is clearly defined to be a fallen angel (Rev 9), and is definitely not a human. The phrase “man of sin” would seem to indicate that the false prophet, who seems to be a human, is being referred to here. But could the “man of sin, the son of perdition” be referring to the Abaddon, a fallen angel?

The word here “man” is “anthropos” which can mean, 
“1) a human being, whether male or female g) with reference to sex, a male
2) indefinitely, someone, a man, one”. 
The word “anthropos” literally means “man-faced” or “man-appearance” and comes from the words “aner” (man) and “optanomia” (appear/to look at/behold). The word “anthropos” is actually a general term, which often can refer to women or just someone in general. As such the word “anthropos” could sometimes be better translated as “person”, depending on context.

Comparatively, the word “aner” more specifically means a male or man. But the more specific term “aner” is used to refer to angels in both Luke 24:4 “two men stood by them in shining garments”, and also in Acts 1:10, “two men stood by them in white apparel”. As such a more specific term for man, “aner”, can refer to angels. In fact there are many times in the Bible in which angels are referred to as men, such as in Gen 18 when 2 angels are referred to as men, (Hebrew “enosh”). If a more specific term like “aner” can refer to an angel who looks like a man, as a man, then it makes sense that a more general term such as “anthropos” which can also refer to women, could also refer to an angel. So it stands to reason that the word “anthropos” in “man of sin” could refer to an angel, and that it would be better understood as “male person of sin”.

It seems the emphasis here is not on that he is human in the first place, but rather that he is male, and that “anthropos” is meant to reference to male gender. This would be in keeping with the use of the phrase “son of perdition”, also referring to his gender being male.

The word “perdition” means “destruction”, and so this can be translated as “ son of destruction”. In the Greek this portion is “καί ἀποκαλυφθῇ ὁ ἄνθρωπος τῆς ἁμαρτίας, ὁ υἱὸς τῆς ἀπωλείας”. This can be translated with this emphasis and meaning, “and be revealed the male person of sin, the son of destruction”. The “male person” does not have to be a human man, and could be the fallen angel beast Abaddon. Though, it is also true that the fallen angel Abaddon would be claiming to be the man Nimrod; a big lie.

Continuing to the next verse, the character in question is specified to do a couple things.

“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?” 2 Thes

Comparing this to Revelation, is it the “false prophet” who does these things, or is it Abaddon? The fallen angel Beast Abaddon that comes out of the bottomless pit/ Tartaros is the same as the Beast out of the Sea and the Beast with 7 heads and ten horns. He is the one who will be worshipped. Comparing verses about Abaddon makes this clear.

“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit… And they had a king before them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit [the Abyss], whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.” Rev 9

“Why are you so amazed?” the angel asked. “I will tell you the mystery of this woman and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns. The beast you saw was alive but isn’t now. And yet he will soon come up out of the bottomless pit [the Abyss] and go to eternal destruction. And the people who belong to this world, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from before the world began, will be amazed at the reappearance of this beast who had died.” Rev 17:7-8

“And when they shall have finished their testimony, the Beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit [Abyss] shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.” Rev 11

“And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea, and I 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. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Rev 13

This fallen angel Abaddon, who is the “Beast from the Sea” which comes out of the Abyss, the one with 7 heads and ten horns, is the one who people will worship. This fallen angel Beast Abaddon Beast, is the one who everyone will worship.

This matches up with 2 Thes 2:4, “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”

And so it is the Beast Abadddon that Revelation confirms will be worshipped, and so it is he who will primarily exalt himself showing himself he is god, and will blaspheme God, His name, and His tabernacle. We can contrast this to what is said about the “false prophet” in the book of Revelation:

“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. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And 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. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Rev 13

“And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.” Rev 19

The “Beast from the Earth” is the “false prophet”, and he causes people to worship the fallen angel Beast Abaddon. The “false prophet” is not the same individual as Abaddon. The false prophet makes an image of Abaddon and makes people worship that image, and the false prophet is empowered by evil to work miracles to deceive people into worshipping Abaddon and the image of Abaddon. The false prophet himself is not described in Revelation as being worshipped, but rather only Abaddon is described as being worshipped.

The name of this fallen angel Beast is Abaddon or Apollyon, which means “the Destroyer”. This loosely matches up with 2 Thes 2:3, “the son of Destruction”. Although it is also true this term is used descriptively in several places in the Bible like we might use the term “son of hell” today. “Destruction” seems to refer both to the Abyss, and to Gehenna which is the Lake of Fire. In the Lake of Fire, there is destruction, and Rev says of the Beast Abaddon, “And yet he will soon come up out of the bottomless pit [the Abyss] and go to eternal destruction.” Additionally this fallen angel Abaddon was imprisoned in the Abyss at the flood when God destroyed the world in the Flood, so this also is a reference to destruction. And so the fallen angel beast Abaddon does fit the description of the term “son of Destruction” in many ways.

Beyond this 2 Thessalonians also seems to reference to the Beast Abaddon being released from the bottomless pit / Tartaros/ Abyss. 
“And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.”

Looking at the Greek, these verses can be and would more accurately be rendered:

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the male of sin is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? And in the present you know he’s restrained, into being revealed in his appointed time. For the mystery now is working lawlessness alone, a restraining at this very moment, until out of the midst he arises. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.”

(Again see the work of Brian Huie who has been writing on this since 1997 http://www.herealittletherealittle.net/index.cfm?page_name=Abaddon)

Note that in these verses there is no “restrainer”. He is restrained, but there are no pronouns or anything in these verses in the Greek that necessitate or tell of someone in particular restraining him. He simply is restrained, “until out of the midst he arises” and he is revealed. It’s not a matter of “who” is restraining him, but rather “what” is restraining him. What is restraining him is his imprisonment in the dungeon of the bottomless pit / Tartaros/ the Abyss.

This precisely matches what is told of the Beast Abaddon who comes out of the Abyss in Revelation.

“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit [Abyss]; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit… And they had a king before them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit [the Abyss], whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.” Rev 9

“Why are you so amazed?” the angel asked. “I will tell you the mystery of this woman and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns. The beast you saw was alive but isn’t now. And yet he will soon come up out of the bottomless pit [the Abyss] and go to eternal destruction. Rev 17

The Abyss is what is currently restraining Abaddon, and when it is opened he will be revealed. He will arise out of the midst of the Abyss, and in the midst of the other fallen angels who are called locusts, and look like horse creatures.

(Though it seems he is not a king “over them”, but rather Revelation reads that there is a king “before them” or “in their presence”, which also means he is in the midst of them. See A Survey of the Abyss in the Old and New Testaments and http://www.paradoxbrown.com/Chapter_2.html for details. Also see Prov 30:27)

The description in 2 Thessalonians of the “male of sin” being worshipped, and his restraining/revealing precisely matches the description of the fallen angel Abaddon in Revelation. Also in 2 Thessalonians an “appointed time” is mentioned, “into being revealed in his appointed time” which also matches with the “and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months” about the Beast Abaddon. Everything seems to match up between the Beast Abaddon in Revelation and the “male of sin” in 2 Thessalonians. Nothing in 2 Thessalonians seems to match with the description of the “false prophet” in the book of Revelation.

And so this fallen angel Beast Abaddon who is released from Tartaros is the “male of sin, son of perdition”, “Lawless one” who is going to be worshipped by the whole world. When 2 Thessalonians tells of the “male of sin will be revealed” what it means is this fallen angel Abaddon will be let out of the Abyss. The fallen angel Beast Abaddon is the one who will set himself up in the temple of God, showing himself that he is god.

However, we can know he is going to look like a man, because he is going to claim to be the man Nimrod, the Assyrian. (This is unlike the locusts who are the other Genesis-6 angels released, who are described to appear to look like locust/horse creatures.)

Now that is has been established that the “male of sin, son of destruction, lawless one” in 2 Thessalonians is referring the fallen angel beast Abaddon, and not the “false prophet”, we can continue with explaining why the world would believe this big lie. That big lie being that this fallen angel, who is going to look like a man, will claim to be Nimrod from ancient Assyria.

 

The Big Lie and the Strong Delusion

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thes 2:9-12

When the fallen angel Abaddon is released from the Abyss, he is going to be met by something that is already occurring. His coming will be according to the working of Satan, who is already on the earth and active, even waiting for this fallen angel/beast to arrive. “And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea, and I saw a Beast rise up out of the Sea” Rev 13

Satan is waiting for Abaddon to be released, and currently is making preparation for the Abaddon, working with power, signs and lying wonders. Satan is waiting for Abaddon to arise, and is causing “unrighteous deception among those who perish”, who are not saved. These lying signs and wonders are meant to prepare people for the big lie that Abaddon is Nimrod from ancient Assyria. 2 Thessalonians says that God will send a Strong Delusion so that these people will believe a lie, and this is that lie.

In the Bible when it says that God “sends” or does something involving evil, what is meant is that God will allow or permit evil beings to work unchecked or unrestrained. God Himself does no evil, but at times God permits or allows for evil to work without a barrier. And that is what it means here that God will send people a Strong Delusion, that these people will believe a lie.

Why does God allow this Strong Delusion? 2 Thessalonians makes clear that the reason for the Strong Delusion is specifically for the coming of the lawless one, who is the Beast Abaddon. The Strong Delusion is sent for the reason of believing the lie that Abaddon is “Nimrod”, which he will tell the people of the world when he is let out of the Abyss. (*But who will “Nimrod” be defined, or re-defined, as having been? More on that soon.)

Abaddon arises out of the Abyss with Satan’s working already in action, with Satan’s lying wonders, and unrighteous deceptions already taking place. Satan stands by the shore, waiting for Abaddon to arise out of the Abyss, and Satan’s lying wonders and unrighteous deception among those who are not saved, revolves around preparing the lost to be deceived with the lie that Abaddon is Nimrod. And while Satan preps people for the Abaddon to arise, God is allowing a Strong Delusion, so that these unsaved people (who did not love the truth) will believe the lie that Abaddon is Nimrod from ancient Assyria.

The passage above might be more easily understood if it was rearranged in this order:

God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie for this reason: The coming of the lawless one. [This Strong Delusion so they believe the lie] is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

So what is the Strong Delusion? In the Greek the word “Strong” means “working, efficiency, power” and the word “Delusion” means “wandering, straying about, mental straying, error, deceit, delusion”.

Whatever the Strong Delusion is, it is powerful and effective, efficient, and is of a mental straying, error, of deceit and delusion. Besides this, it an unrighteous deception among the unsaved, who did not love the truth, and the truth is Jesus Christ. So the Strong Delusion is opposed to Jesus Christ and the Gospel, and must involve a false religious belief system.

Looking at false religious belief systems today, there is only one which far succeeds above all others, which is more popular and effective and efficient than any others, by far. That is the false religious belief system of the Theory of Evolution (Macro Evolution).

In an ecumenical fashion, it has permeated all other religious belief systems. Buddhists, Muslims, New Agers, and even many Christians have come to believe the Theory of Evolution alongside whatever else they believe, pushing aside any fundamentals of their religion to make room for the Theory of Evolution to be included somehow.

How efficient is the Theory of Evolution? In this 2006 survey, people were asked if this statement was true: “”Human beings, as we know them, developed from earlier species of animals.” http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/bigphotos/21329204.html

The majority of the world believes in the Theory of Evolution, no matter what other religion they profess. Besides this, it is taught to children in public schools worldwide as “science” and “truth”, and people are indoctrinated with the Theory of Evolution worldwide from childhood. It has gained worldwide acceptance and prominence, and more so than any other faith-based belief system. It is the most efficient powerful false belief system in the world today, and has worked extremely well to delude the world, more so than anything else. So the Strong Delusion must be the Theory of Evolution.

But how does the Theory of Evolution relate to the coming of this fallen angel Beast Abaddon who is released and comes out of the Abyss, and the big lie which is his claim to be Nimrod from ancient Assyria?

The Theory of Evolution is the biggest “unrighteous deception” among those who perish, which is from the workings of Satan. But Satan is waiting by the sea, preparing the world for the Beast Abaddon, and has a goal for the Theory of Evolution. Satan is using this unrighteous deception, the Theory of Evolution to prepare people to believe the Beast Abaddon is Nimrod. Satan is also using power, and lying signs and wonders, which are also part of the Strong Delusion, to prepare the world to believe Abaddon’s lie.

How does the Theory of Evolution tie to Abaddon’s lie of being Nimrod from ancient Assyria? Well, what do these deceived people in the world know about Abaddon, and how are we told they will react to Abaddon when he gets here?

“He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name… One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast… and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who [is] like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?…And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. …And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world..” Rev 13

“I will tell thee the mystery… of the beast… which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.” Rev 17

The world will be astonished and wonder about the Beast Abaddon, and worship him. The world is astonished because of his healed head, because he claims to be Nimrod from ancient Assyria. This means that people will be told that the Beast Abaddon was here on earth and alive in the ancient past, and has returned. It is unknown if people will be told, or understand, that he has been imprisoned in the Abyss, in the earth, all this time he was gone. It seems that people could be told he was just about anywhere during this interim, between when he was here in the ancient past, and his return. And all of this strikes of people being told that the Beast Abaddon is some sort of immortal being, or a being with great longevity.

But because these people did not love the truth, and so believe a lie, they will not understand that he is a fallen angel, and that him being a fallen angel is the reason why he is immortal: that he was created that way by God. Rather, these people are under the Strong Delusion, and believe in the Theory of Evolution, wrought by Satan, who is preparing people to accept the Beast Abaddon when he comes.

So what is there in the Theory of Evolution that allows for:

1. a being with great longevity, or immortality
2. who was here in Earth’s ancient past, was gone, but now has returned
3. a place where he supposedly was, all this time he was gone

There really only is one answer. There is nothing about the Theory of Evolution which relates to planet earth and its past that would allow for such a being to come from here. Man is thought of to be the pinnacle of evolution on this planet, and has not attained this sort of longevity. So people could not believe that he is a just a man who has evolved to have longevity.

But if the Theory of Evolution was the trunk of a tree, there is one very large and popular branch of thought that comes off of it which would give explanation for all of these things. And that branch off of the Theory of Evolution is the idea that life has evolved in outerspace, on other planets, in other solar systems. A natural, popular, outgrowth of the Theory of Evolution is the idea of alien life. And as is seen in TV, movies, science fiction books, the idea is already widespread that perhaps there could be aliens out there, even ones which have evolved to great longevity, or perhaps have used technology to achieve near-immortality.

If the Beast was thought to be a near-immortal alien, this also explains how he could have been here in Earth’s ancient past, been gone for thousands of years, and then later returned, and also explains where he could have been all this time, in that he might have been in outerspace.

The best explanation for how the Theory of Evolution prepares people to be deceived by the Beast Abaddon’s lie of being “Nimrod”, is in the evolution-based teaching that there is alien life in outerspace.

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thes 2

The Strong Delusion, which is allowed by God, is the Theory of Evolution. The “Strong Delusion” is specified in 2 Thessalonians to be “For this reason”, which is “the coming of the lawless one” who is the Beast Abaddon. The “coming of the lawless one” is the specified Biblical reason for the Theory of Evolution, and the theory of Evolution is the “unrighteous deception among those who perish”. So the Bible actually teaches that the whole point of the Theory of Evolution, and its popularity, is so that people will be deceived by the Beast Abaddon, and believe a lie. And this lie centers around the claim that he is the Assyrian, “Nimrod”.

But beyond the “unrighteous deception” part of the Strong Delusion, which is the Theory of Evolution, Satan also uses power, and lying signs and wonder to prepare the world to believe this lie. Those lying signs and wonders are the UFO sightings and alien abduction experiences that many people have had; supernatural and paranormal deception. As such the claim will not just be that the Beast Abaddon is Nimrod, but rather that he is Nimrod and that Nimrod (Sargon) in fact was an alien who was here on Earth in the ancient past.

How is “Nimrod” going to be defined, more like re-defined, to have been, corresponding to Sargon of Akkad, who is thought to have formed the first world empire?

In fact Biblical Assyria is historically the place that is taught in school as the “fertile crescent”, and refers to Sumerian/Mesopotamian/Akkadian people. Children are taught in school that this was the place where human civilization first developed, and where agriculture started, where the wheel was invented, writing was first developed, etc. around 3500-2800 BC. And the first world ruler who conquered over those around him was Sargon of Akkad / Nimrod, who was from this region, and he ruled around 2270 BC. As such the Beast Abaddon may claim to be an alien who started human civilization in Assyria/Mesopotamia and then stayed around (as an immortal/near-immortal “alien”) for some 1000 years, ruling as Sargon/Nimrod, before he left. (And this would be a lie, as Abaddon was imprisoned at the time of the Flood, Eze 31:15 see http://www.paradoxbrown.com/Chapter_2.html or the Video http://paradoxbrown.com/the-case-against-book-first-enoch/)

This lie that the Strong Delusion causes people to believe revolves around the Beast Abaddon claiming to be Nimrod/Sargon from ancient Assyria. This lie seems to be that Abaddon is an near-immortal alien from outerspace, who was here in Earth’s past in ancient times, at the birthplace of human civilization in secular history, that this alien left, and has returned.

In fact the point, the pinnacle, the grand finale, the climax of the Theory of Evolution, and of all the lying signs and wonders of UFOs/aliens is that people will believe the Beast Abaddon is an alien. And in specific, that this alien founded the first human civilization, which is accredited to Sargon the Great, Sargon of Akkad, in secular history, who corresponds to Nimrod in the Bible. And Assyria is the place in secular history which corresponds to the “fertile crescent”, Mesopotamia/Sumeria, where civilization started, and the first cultivation of crops, the invention of the wheel, writings, etc. This is why the lie that Abaddon is Nimrod will make sense to the world. They will think this alien founded human civilization, taught the cultivations of crops, built the first cities, etc.

But the truth is that the Beast Abaddon is a fallen angel, and he is not Nimrod. And there is something else which is important about the fact that the Abaddon is a fallen angel. Again, repeatedly in the Bible angels are sometimes called “men”, and that is because they appear looking like human men.

The Beast Abaddon is called the “man of sin” in 2 Thessalonians, and this indicates this fallen angel will look like a human man. But this raises the question, how could he both be an alien from outerspace, and look like a human man? If him being an alien is the big lie that the people of the world will be deceived into believing, then shouldn’t he look non-human? So there is a 4th fact about the Beast which needs to be addressed.

 

4. The Beast Abaddon looks like a human man

On the tree of the Strong Delusion, the Theory of Evolution is the trunk, and a large branch that comes off of it is the idea that alien life evolved in outerspace, and one branch that comes off of this, is the idea that life here on earth was seeded by aliens. This idea is called “panspermia” or “exogenesis”. There are several different ways the Theory of Exogenesis can go, one way is that life was carried here on a meteor from outerspace, like a seed carried by the wind. Another story is that man was already evolving here, but that aliens speeded up the evolution of mankind, even altering us to be partly like them. Another story is that all life on this planet was genetically engineered and planted here by aliens, and the aliens made men more evolved and special from all the other life. Let’s talk about this last option in particular.

What this version of the Theory of Exogenesis amounts to, is that the aliens replace the role of God. The Theory of Exogenesis allows for aliens to have created all life on Earth, having created it and put it here, and also that mankind could have been made special. In fact, the Theory of Exogenesis even allows for mankind to have been made to look like the aliens, and be more evolved and intelligent than the animals; special and different from the animals.

So how could people believe that Abaddon could look human, and yet be an alien? People could believe this if they were deceived with a lie: that this alien Abaddon looked like them because he created them, because he created mankind, or even because he created all life on earth including mankind. It would make sense to people that humans look like this “alien” Abaddon because he created or designed humanity to look like him.

Revelation tell us more about how people will react to this fallen angel Abaddon.

“And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Rev 13

 Why do all the people of the world worship the Beast Abaddon? Because they believe he is their creator, because they believe he is god. This makes sense if the people believe that the Beast Abaddon is a near-immortal alien who genetically engineered all life on Earth, and especially created mankind in his image, in which is the explanation for why he looks like a human man. This matches with 2 Thessalonians and Revelation also,

“Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the “man” of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.

“He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven.” Rev 13:6

Abaddon makes the claim that he is god, meaning the creator of life on this planet and mankind. This is how he blasphemes God, and exalts himself above all current world religious belief systems. Almost all world religions have compromised with the Theory of Evolution and in doing so they have made room to be deceived by Abaddon, by opening themselves up to also believe in the Theory of Exogenesis. The claim that Abaddon is the creator of life on this planet and mankind would overshadow and replace the claims of the current religious belief systems, which are “all that is worshipped”.

The explanation for every traditional world religious system will be replaced with him, the “alien” claimed creator of humanity, this “alien” who claims he made humanity in his image. All religions would adjust and be proved wrong by his presence, making room for a Theory of Exogenesis based explanation for their religious beliefs.

Still, would Abaddon simply making the claim that he is an alien, who looks like us because he made humanity, who was here in the past as who we know as Nimrod, be enough for people to believe him?

 

Several Reasons For the World to Believe Abaddon’s Lie

It seems there would be more needed to act as incontrovertible proof to the deceived, that he is in fact the creator of mankind. The Bible teaches the world has been primed and prepped by the Strong Delusion to believe this lie, and it seems they will.

Yet, this does not happen just by his say-so only, but also with proof in the form of lying signs and wonders of Satan, false miraculous things that amaze and deceive the people of the world, (*and quite possibly for one other very legitimate seeming reason). The Bible teaches that angels are capable of working all sorts of supernatural physics-defying feats if they want to, and are allowed to by God. During this time period, the full power of a fallen angel who has fully manifested out into the open will be allowed, and shown to the world, with all sorts of lying miraculous wonders. Satan gives his power and authority to the Beast Abaddon (Rev 13:2), and the false prophet also gets involved with displaying the power of these lying signs and wonders (Rev 13).

Another reason that people will worship Abaddon and believe him, besides these miraculous lying signs and wonders, is because he will be impossible to fight.

Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?” Rev 13

While people may try to make war against the Beast, they will find themselves somehow unable to do so. A fallen angel is perfectly capable of doing such feats as disabling even nuclear missiles launched against him, and throwing them inertly into the depths of the ocean. In fact, a fallen angel could take all weapons that people try to use against him, and throw them into the sea, or destroy them, if he wanted to, publicly and openly, even with it showing up on the evening news. In doing this, the Beast Abaddon could quickly establish control over the world, when the world sees that he is impossible to fight against this “alien”. This aligns well with Abaddon claiming he is an alien who was here in the past, as all of the lying supernatural miraculous wonders could be attributed to advanced technology. Or they could be attributed to him being some sort of extra-dimensionally evolved alien. Either way, he will unite the world under his control, and no one will be able to fight against this invading alien, who has all the supernatural powers of a fallen angel at his disposal, to use openly to deceive.

And so it seems in this show of force and power, and supremacy over all the power of all the people of Earth, combined with his claim he is the alien creator of mankind, the people will choose to worship him. And this also seems to be combined with people being told that he was here in ancient Mesopotamia/Assyria, the “fertile crescent” from which civilization sprang, and that he ruled there as an alien king in the past, after having created humanity in his image.

(*There is one other very legitimate-seeming reason why the world would receive Abaddon as the alien creator of humanity. If you follow the Nephilim studies on this site, several conclusions are reached from the scriptures, while having genetics in mind. It seems likely that 1) physically manifested, the fallen angel Abaddon will be shown to have human DNA, and 2) Abaddon is described in Eze 31 to have had more nephilim children than the other sons of God – from who human DNA genetic corruption was carried on the ark by a Human woman – proven both in 120-year shortened lifespans and gigantism after the flood, both which originated in the genepool with the nephilim – so 3) statistically speaking all humanity is more likely descended from a maternal-line descendant of a nephilim daughter, who was descended from Abaddon, than the other sons of God before the flood, which means 4) it is quite possible there is some DNA marker we all share which could match that of Abaddon’s DNA in specific OR 5) if nothing else Abaddon’s DNA will seem to match that of humanity in general. Which all equals out to, if people do a DNA test on Abaddon, the results are likely going to match humanity’s DNA and this would serve as “scientific proof” to back up Abaddon’s claim to be the “alien creator of humanity”. See http://paradoxbrown.com/demonsnephilim.htm/ and The Case Against the Book of First Enoch for more bible study, on this line of reasoning.)

 

The Timing of the Takeover

Reference to the Revelation Timeline for the 5 month period of the 5th Trumpet. http://paradoxbrown.com/RevelationTimelineMed.jpg

This all indicates that once this fallen angel the Beast Abaddon is released from the Abyss, he will come onto the world scene very quickly. He has been given authority for 42 months once he establishes control, and it seems he will establish his control over the earth (“who can make war against him?”) very shortly after his arrival. In order,

1. “And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a Beast coming out of the sea” (Rev 13) “and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit” and possibly people might also see “a star fall from heaven unto the earth” (Rev 9)

This fallen angel Abaddon is let out of the Abyss

2. “The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.”

Immediately Satan gives all his power as “prince of this world” over to Abaddon

3. “One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast.”

Abaddon makes the public claim to have been here in Earth’s past upon his public arrival. He may use all sorts of supernatural lying signs and wonders to tell this story of this lie that he was once Nimrod/Sargon, and that he is the alien creator of humanity, who has returned.

Somehow the world will be told that he is an alien who started human civilization in Mesopotamia/Assyria, and perhaps that he then ruled as Sargon the Great. So Abaddon is let out of the Abyss, almost immediately is given power by Satan and comes out publicly declaring he is an alien creator of humanity, which he made in his image, and the founder of the first human civilization. Next,

4. “Men worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can make war against him?”

The world worships Abaddon, after finding out that they can’t make war against him. People likely try to make war against this fallen angel, and find all of human technology and weaponry to be useless against him, and the full public expression of the supernatural powers he was created with as an angel. ( And first, apparently Satanists worship Satan for giving power to Abaddon… or that when people worship the Beast it also counts as worshipping Satan…)

5. “The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty‑two months. He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven.”

At this time, if he hasn’t prior, the Abaddon the “alien” will claim to be god and the creator of mankind and life on this planet, and to tell all sorts of lies slandering God.

6. “He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.”

After quickly coming into power and deceiving the world with his lies and supernatural abilities, Abaddon begins to make war against “the saints” and have power over the entire world. (Note: These would be those who are left behind after the Rapture, and also the Jews.)

His 42 months of authority seem to start fairly quickly after his arrival onto the scene when he is let out of the Abyss. His arrival is dramatic, quick, and powerfully deceptive.

If he does in fact claim to be an alien, which seems to be what 2 Thessalonians and Revelation point to in keeping with the Strong Delusion of the Theory of Evolution… then the entire world will be deceived amazed and shocked at this time to learn that there is alien life, which now has made contact, and even which has visited earth before.

In the field of Ufology, among those who study UFOs and “alien abductions”, this event of the public being made aware of the existence of alien life, is known as UFO Disclosure. Those in the field of Ufology have been talking about it for years, and are primed for it to occur. It is commonly thought in Ufological circles that the governments of the world will make an official public statement as to the existence of alien life, or it visiting earth. However, UFO Disclosure may not occur this way. Official UFO Disclosure may come suddenly, with the arrival of the fallen angel Abaddon, the Beast from the Abyss, in such a way that is so public and dramatic that no government could possibly deny it. This event of first contact with an alien race would shock the world.

The reason why Ufologists have been anticipating UFO Disclosure stems from the sightings of UFOs which have been increasing dramatically worldwide for over 50 years, starting in fact in the late 1800s. Along with this are the many cases in which people claim they have had “alien abduction” experiences. But these experiences have been shown to be cause by evil spirits and fallen angels, as these experiences are well-documented to stop in the name and authority of Jesus Christ. (See Ce4Research.com)

These are the most prominent lying signs and wonders of Satan mentioned in 2 Thessalonians which have been preparing people to believe the lie of Abaddon,

 “The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” 2 Thes

Before the arrival of Abaddon the Beast, Satan has been prepping the world to accept him, with the unrighteous deception and Strong Delusion of the Theory of Evolution and Theory of Exogenesis. But Satan has also been prepping the world with the power of lying signs and wonders, which are the paranormal/supernatural sightings of UFOs, and the experiences that people have of “alien abduction”. (How this is done by Satan or the other fallen angels with him is explained more here http://paradoxbrown.com/biblephysicsfallenangels.htm/)

And these lying signs and wonders of the Strong Delusion have been very effective in prepping the world to be deceived by Abaddon. These charts are based on several surveys over the last 50 years. While the numbers may not be entirely precise, nevertheless the trend showing an increase in these beliefs is valid.



 

According to these charts, almost 90% of people currently believe there is alien life in outerspace, almost 50% of people believe that UFOs are from aliens (and thus that aliens have visited us); about 10% of people believe they have seen a UFO, and 2-7% of people believe they have been abducted by aliens. These figures are fairly accurate, and the world seems prepped and ripe to be deceived by Abaddon upon his release.

And so all this is the Strong Delusion, and the Bible teaches it is why and how people will believe Abaddon’s lie that he is Nimrod from ancient Assyria. Abaddon is going to claim to be the alien creator of humanity, who was here in the past and started civilization, who left for some reason, and who has returned. And the Bible teaches that the world is going to fall for this deception and this lie.

Now there are more questions. As Revelation seems to describe the Beast Abaddon to arrive suddenly, and come to power suddenly, then how much warning will there be before his arrival? How does this fit into a timetable of the book of Revelation?

So we are going to get back into laying out the book of Revelation, with all this understanding, and try to put it in order. But first, there is one more topic we need to cover, which is how the Mark of the Beast and the number 666 fits in here.

 

The Number and Mark of the Beast

We are going to look at how the number of the Beast, which is 666, and the mark of the Beast are fulfilled in relation to Abaddon. In order to calculate the number of the Beast Abaddon, one has to understand the fact that the Roman god Saturn was modeled after Nimrod.

“As “Saturn” to the Romans, he was “Kronos/Chronos” to the Greeks. To the Egyptians, he was alternately “Khons” and “Osiris.” The Babylonians named him “Ninus” while to the Assyrians he was Bel, Bal or Belus. The Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Canaanites referred to Saturn as Baal or Baalim. The person from whom these various legends extend is none other than Nimrod, that “mighty hunter before [against] the Lord.” Nimrod, grandson of Ham and great grandson of Noah, was the first deified Babylonian king. Nimrod’s reestablishment of idolatry in the post-flood world came down in the legends and pantheons of the various idolatrous nations which did not retain a knowledge of the true God. Under differing names, Nimrod/Saturn appeared in all ancient idolatry.” (This link (essential reading) provides a good overview: http://www.4angelspublications.com/articles/Origins_of_Saturn.pdf)

Here are some additional links confirming that Saturn was based on Nimrod: http://jtf27.tripod.com/saturn.htm http://philologos.org/__eb-ttb/sect221.htm

Saturn is based on Nimrod, and is the same as Kronos in Greece, and the same as Baal, and additionally has several other names used in the Bible.

At the same time that Saturn is based on Nimrod, there was also much in Saturn’s mythology that was similar to the fallen angels of Genesis 6. Saturn was a Titan, who was imprisoned in Tartaros. And so in the mythology of Saturn there are aspects both of Nimrod and his story, and also aspects of the imprisoned fallen angels in Tartaros. When Abaddon is released, it seems very likely that he will identify himself not only as Nimrod the “alien”, but also that Saturn’s mythological story developed based on the legend of Nimrod the “alien”, who Abaddon will claim to be.

Saturn in Chaldean is supposed to be spelled STUR, and the number of this name is 666.

http://atschool.eduweb.co.uk/sbs777/prophecy/no666.html

The number of the name of Saturn is 666. Beyond this, Saturn had a star that was associated with him, the six-pointed star, which is symbolic of the number 666. http://watch.pair.com/mark2.html This star is mentioned twice as the star of Saturn in the Bible.

“Then God turned, and gave them up to worship the host of heaven; as it is written in the book of the prophets, O ye house of Israel, have ye offered to me slain beasts and sacrifices [by the space of] forty years in the wilderness? Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan [Saturn], figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.” Acts 7:42-43

The second time the star of Saturn is mentioned in the Bible is closely related to a mention about the Day of the Lord, and judgment.

“Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end [is] it for you? the day of the LORD [is] darkness, and not light. As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him. [Shall] not the day of the LORD [be] darkness, and not light? even very dark, and no brightness in it? I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies. Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept [them]: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts. Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols. But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream. Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel? But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun [Saturn] your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves. Amos 5:18-26

This could be a major hint that the Mark of the Beast in Revelation is the star of Saturn. This would make a lot a lot of sense as this star does represent 666, and Saturn corresponds to Nimrod, who Abaddon will claim to be. The six-pointed star of Saturn entered into Jewish history as an idolatrous symbol of Saturn worship, and never completely left the culture from that time on. It also was the star of Ashtoreth/Astarte.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/zeevveez/5401073241/ (9th century BC Assyrian 6-pointed star from city of Nimrod)

Much good historical information on the 6-pointed star of Saturn can be found here.

http://littleguyintheeye.wordpress.com/2010/01/13/mark-of-the-beast-6-hexagram/

6 lines to make it, 6 sides to inner hexagon, 6 outer triangles = 666

The name Nimrod does not correspond to 666 in Hebrew, but in truth Abaddon will not be Nimrod, no matter if he might claim to be. The story of the Titan Saturn actually is a more accurate description of who Abaddon really is.

But the name Nimrod does represent 666, in the modern alpha-numeric code that is in popular use. If Abaddon were to appear today claiming to be Nimrod, it seems that God has provided a simple way for most people to be able to calculate the number of his name, without having to know ancient languages and their numerical representation systems. And this way seems to be exactly the sort of thing that God would do to make it easy for anyone to identify “Nimrod” as the Beast. This way also follows the pattern over the last 2000 years that the name/title of the Beast in general was possible to calculate in a modern language’s alpha-numerical system.

This way is the telephone texting keypad. On the telephone keypad, the number 6 is the same as the letters N, M, and O. This would make Nimrod to have 3 sixes in it, evenly spaced, as 6I6R6D. It is also interesting to note that a 6-pointed star symbol is also on the telephone keypad. *

See:  http://paradoxbrown.com/NumberMarkBeastAntichristNimrod666.jpg

This very closely follows the example of the man who first represented the Beast to the early Christians, which was Herod. The Herodian line was known for persecuting Christ and Christian persecution, and the name Horodos equated in Hebrew to H6R6D6S. http://www.caom.us/pdf/The%20Herods.pdf

The Timeline of Revelation

We have covered the “primer” to understanding the Church Ages, and the full Mystery of the Beast’s story throughout history, that the Beast fulfilling events in Revelation will be the fallen angel Abaddon, that his lie will be that he is Nimrod, an alien from ancient Assyria, and all that entails, the nature of the Strong Delusion and it’s workings that are preparing the world to believe this lie, and the number and mark of the Beast Abaddon.

Having all this information in hand, we are going to start to put together the timeline of the book of Revelation.

One thing learned by the letters to the 7 churches is that each letter was a Church Age that spanned a period of time, and that these letters were fulfilled in the chronological order that they were written in. This sets a precedent that the 7 Seals and 7 Trumpets that follow should also be laid out in the chronological order in which they were written.

At this point, please see the timeline here as a referent:

http://paradoxbrown.com/RevelationTimelineMed.jpg

Revelation Chapters Timeline Outline

Chapter 1 Opening Message

Chapters 2-3 Letters to the 7 Churches

Chapters 4-5 The Preparation of Opening the Seal and Scene in Heaven

Chapters 6-8 The Seven Seals are Opened

Chapters 8-9 The First 6 Trumpets are Blown

Based on the precedent set by the 7 Letters corresponding to 7 chronological Church Ages, the 7 Seals and 7 Trumpets should follow one after another in chronological order. Everything described after a Seal is specified to have opened should happen chronologically before the time that the next Seal opens. The events after each Trumpet is announced happen during that trumpet, up until the next Trumpet is blown. The events of the Seals and Trumpets all lay out in Chronological order, as precedent was set for this by the 7 letters to the 7 churches.

There is no real confusion in this, until chapter 10 after the 6th Trumpet is blown. Following the precedent set by the church letters, everything that happens after the 6th Trumpet is blown, but before the 7th Trumpet is blown, should be counted as happening chronologically in the time period of the 6th Trumpet. This is the simplest explanation.

In the 6th Trumpet, Chapter 10 describes that John must “prophesy again”, which seems to interrupt the flow of the passage. This is followed by the arrival of the 2 witnesses. The confusion possible in this passage is that John is backtracking to given more detail on events which occurred earlier in Revelation, in earlier Seals or Trumpets. This idea is counter-intuitive. The 7th Trumpet follows along next in chronological order, and there is nothing that definitely indicates that the precedent of chronological order has been broken with John being told he must “prophesy again”. Nothing here indicates that John must be stepping back to the time periods covering the Seals or earlier Trumpets. Such an assumption should not be made without at least other possibilities being considered, and one possible alternative explanation seems likely.

In Chapter 10 John sees and experiences a couple things which have been seen before in the Old Testament by other prophets. The first is that John sees a scene very similar to Daniel 12, of an angel swearing by “Him who created Heaven…”, and Daniel 12 references to prophecy to be fulfilled in the end times of 1290 days and 1335 days, and the stopping of the daily sacrifice, and the abomination of desolation. Daniel 12 also ties back to Daniel 9 and the 70th week of the Jews. Another referent made is to John eating a scroll, the same as Ezekiel did in the beginning of the book of Ezekiel. Many topics are covered in the book of Ezekiel, including the restoration of Israel into the millennial kingdom towards the end of Ezekiel. Both of these references indicate an intentional shifting of focus back onto Old Testament prophecies dealing with Israel. An alternative explanation for John being told he must “prophecy again” is that he is going to begin to prophecy about the 70th week of Daniel. If this is the case, then the details of the 70th weeks of Daniel should follow. And if this is the case, then the 70th week of Daniel is clearly pointed out. If John is stepping back in time to “prophesy again” and fill in concurrently happening events, then the simplest explanation is that he is stepping back only as far as the beginning of the 6th Trumpet.

After John begins to “prophecy again” the Two Witnesses appear. They are specified to prophesy for 1260 days, and lay dead for 3.5 days. This equates to 3.5 years and 3.5 days, which could refer to the 70th “week” of Daniel 9 in its entirety. Jesus said that “those days will be shortened” and this may refer specifically to the 3.5 years of the second half of the week of Daniel being shortened to 3.5 days. In fact, there hardly seems any other expected set time period that could be “shortened” besides the 70th week which many expect will be 7 years. Truly, how can something be “shortened” if it’s length of time is completely unknown, as if the length of time was unknown, there were be no basis of reference for comparison of being “shortened”.

Along with the 1260 days the Two Witnesses are said to prophesy, it is noted that the “outer court” will be trampled for 42 months. Elsewhere it is made clear that the Beast Abaddon will be in authority for 42 months. The Fifth Trumpet is clearly when the Beast Abaddon is released from the bottomless pit/ Tataros. The Beast Abaddon could not come into authority until after he is released. The Fifth Trumpet is specified to contain the torment of the locusts (other released fallen angels) which is the first woe, and lasts 5 months. It would make sense that it might take 5 months for this “alien” Abaddon to establish control over the world. As such, there is not a problem with his 42 months of authority beginning after this, during the Sixth Trumpet.

Because the 1260 days of the two witnesses is mentioned parallel to 42 months the outer court will be trampled, and the Beast also reigns for 42 months, and because the Beast could not possibly come into authority until at least the 5th Trumpet, it therefore makes total sense that the reign of the Beast Abaddon and the prophesying of the two witnesses could run parallel, at the same time.

If the 70th week is shortened, by the second 3.5 years only being 3.5 days, then the 70th week seems to be entirely composed of the 6th Trumpet. There is no real conflict between this and the prophecies yet to be fulfilled in Daniel, which regard timing.

“And he [Abaddon] shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week [middle between 3.5 years and 3.5 days] he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation [of the 2 Witnesses] to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations [Abaddon in the temple] he shall make [it] desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Dan 9:27

“And from the time the daily shall be taken away [either a daily sacrifice yet to happen, or daily prayers at wailing wall], and the abomination that maketh desolate set up [Abaddon entering the sanctuary], [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days. [between these two events] Blessed [is] he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.” Dan 12:11-12

This is demonstrated in the notes of the timeline at the link above. If the 1290 days occur between the ceasing of a “daily” and Abaddon entering the sanctuary (himself being the abomination) then it seems the “daily” will stop 30 days before the Two Witnesses arrive at the beginning of the 6th Trumpet. This would place the “daily” stopping 30 days before the end of the 5th Trumpet. The word here is simple “daily” and this is not specified to be the same as “sacrifices and oblations” in Daniel 9, and need not be.

As such the “daily” stops for the last month of the 5th Trumpet, the Two Witnesses appear at the 6th Trumpet and the 70th week is indicated to begin then. The 70th week is 3.5 years plus 3.5 days in which the Beast and the Two Witnesses both are active and in conflict.

If this is accepted, then the chronology of the 7 letters, 7 Seals, and 7 Trumpets remains unbroken, all the way up through the end of Chapter 11 of the book of Revelation.

The 7th Trumpet says that the kingdoms of the world “have become” the kingdoms of Christ, and that he “will reign”. But there is no reason to assume that the 7th Trumpet is speaking completely of future events. The 7th Trumpet seems to give an overview that Jesus Christ has taken back the kingdoms of the world, which would mean during the time period of the 7th Trumpet Jesus Christ must have returned to Earth. The wrath of God is mentioned, and everything seems to be happening not in the future, but the present indicative tense. This would mean that during the 7th Trumpet the events mentioned in the 7 Bowls of wrath are taking place.

If we take everything prior up to this point as having occurred chronologically, the 7 letter, 7 Seals, 7 Trumpets, then the 7th Trumpet seems to encapsulate and summarize Jesus Christ’s Return, the wrath of God being dealt out, and the beginning of Jesus Christ reigning on earth. As such the 7th Trumpet is a summary of many events taking place, including the wrath of God, and the last thing that is mentioned as happening is an earthquake and a great hailstorm. A great earthquake and hailstorm are also mentioned as happening in the 7th bowl of wrath. This could indicate that the 7th Trumpet encapsulates and summarizes all of the 7 bowls of wrath, and the 7th Trumpet ends with the 7th Bowl of Wrath.

While it may seem a minor point, there is a distinct and important difference between saying the 7 Bowls follow the 7th Trumpet, and saying that the 7th Trumpet is all 7 of the Bowls. This is because of the keeping of things in chronological order. If the 7th Trumpet is all of the Bowls, then the 7th Trumpet is technically the end of the entire story being told right up to the point of Christ’s Return. But, if the 7 Bowls follow the 7th Trumpet, then the story has not ended yet. This distinction is important because in Chapter 12 which follows, there is either a chronological event that follows next in order, or not.

The scene in Chapter 12 depicts Israel giving birth to Christ, Satan trying to kill Christ at his birth, and Christ ascending up to God and His throne, and also seem to depict Satan’s attempt to destroy the early Christian church at Jerusalem, which fled to Pella. It all would seem to be historical events based on the description given of the male child who will rule the nations with a rod of iron (Rev 19:15). But if this is the case, then we have jumped back in time to a scene from over 2000 years prior to where we had been in time. If so far everything has been chronological, then this is a major important break in the pattern of chronology.

If in fact the 7th trumpet summarizes all 7 Bowls, then the 7th Trumpet ends with the Return of Jesus Christ. This would finish the prophecy. If finished, this would free the prophesy to start over again from the beginning to give more details about everything that had happened prior, starting with Christ’s birth, without interrupting the pattern and precedent of chronology. However, if the 7 Bowls follow the 7th Trumpet, then the chronology seems to have become very broken. This is why I prefer the straightforward explanation that the 7th Trumpet summarizes the 7 Bowls, and ends with the Return of Christ. There does seem to be scriptural backing for this as 1 Cor 15:52 indicates that Jesus Christ will return at the “last trump”, which would reference to the last in a series, this being the 7 Trumpets which each span a period of time.

Based on the precedent set by the 7 Church Ages, and the 7 Seals, it seems that there is a strong argument to be made that all 7 Trumpets are chronological. Based on the contents of the 7th Trumpet which describes Christ having taken the kingdoms of the world and starting to reign, and God’s wrath, it seems that the 7th Trumpet takes us up through Christ’s return. And the next chapter starts over with more detail with a historical scene depicting Christ’s birth. For all these reasons I would conclude that the Trumpets are chronological and span through Christ’s return, which would mean the 7th Trumpet includes the later 7 Bowls of wrath. There is some question, with precedent set by the Letters, Seals, and other Trumpets, as to why a chronological interpretation should be considered only optional and not mandated by the precedent set so far. It does seem to be the most straightforward reading and interpretation to stick to a chronological pattern.

With this being the case, it means that chapters 1-11 are an outline for all the events spanning up to Christ’s return. After this the book of prophesy consists of giving added details to be fit into the framework provided in chapter 1-11. This would continue up until chapter 19, which again depicts the return of Jesus Christ. This means that chapters 12-19 start over, and give added details which are meant to be fit into chapters 1-11, based on the framework which has so far been laid out. And then chapters 20-22 give details on events that happen after this, after Christ’s return.

 

Altogether the Revelation Chapters Timeline Outline as:

Chapter 1 Opening Message

Chapters 2-3 Letters to the 7 Churches

Chapters 4-5 The Preparation of Opening the Seal and Scene in Heaven

Chapters 6-8 The Seven Seals are Opened

Chapters 8-11 The 7 Trumpets are Blown, Christ’s Return

Chapters 12-19 Added details to fit into the framework of Chapter 1-11

Chapters 20-22 Events taking place after this, after Christ’s Return

Now we are going to get into greater detail of these events, and the first detail of this timeline we are going to cover is the Beast from the Earth, who is the false prophet. This is to make sure the difference between the false prophet and the Beast Abaddon is clearly understood, before going any further, as these are 2 separate individuals. From there we will move into the opening of the Seals.

 

Who is the Beast from the Earth?

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.

The second Beast is from the Earth. He is not the Beast Abaddon (Beast from the Sea). As Abaddon literally originated from the Sea, it seems the Beast from the Earth literally originates from the Earth/land. This indicates he is a man, as men are made of the dust of the ground (Gen 2), and live on the earth. This man is symbolically represented as having 2 horns like a lamb, but speaking like a dragon.

And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

The Beast from the Earth causes everyone to worship the fallen angel Abaddon.

And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And 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. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

The Beast from the Earth works deceptive wonders and miracles in the sight of the fallen angel Abaddon. The Beast from the Earth gets everyone to make an image of the fallen angel Abaddon, and give life to it so it speaks. The Beast from the Earth makes everyone worship this image of the fallen angel Abaddon, or be killed.

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.

The Beast from the Earth makes everyone take the Mark of the Beast, and people cannot buy or sell without it. (This indicates the Beast of the Earth is controlling some sort of currency/banking system.) As the Beast from the Earth works miracles in the sight of the fallen angel Abaddon, this matches the role of the False Prophet mentioned in Rev 19:20

And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

The Beast who is mentioned here is the fallen angel Abaddon. In this passage “Beast from the Sea/Abyss” is shortened to just “Beast”. In this passage the “False Prophet” is said to do the same thing that that “Beast from the Earth” had done, such as working miracles in front of Abaddon. Therefore the “Beast from the Earth” is the same as the “False Prophet”. This passage adds that the “Beast from the Earth” deceived those who has received the Mark of the fallen angel Abaddon, and worshipped the image of the fallen angel Abaddon. So we know that the “Beast from the Earth” is the same as the False Prophet.

And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. Rev 16:13

Here is a second confirmation that the “Beast” and “False Prophet” are two different entities. The “Beast from the Sea” who is Abaddon is called “the Beast” for short. And the “Beast from the Earth” is also called the “False Prophet”.

It should be noted that the “Beast from the Earth” is not called the “False Prophet” until after he becomes a false prophet for the fallen angel Abaddon. Before he causes people to worship the fallen angel Abaddon, and the image made of him, and Abaddon’s Mark, he is simply called the “Beast from the Earth”. The Beast from the Earth is the same individual man as the false prophet.

The Beast from the Earth is possibly mentioned another time in Revelation, in the 4th Seal.

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and under the Beast of the Earth. Rev 6:8

The 4th horseman of the 4th Seal is given power over a quarter of the earth, under the Beast of the Earth. This indicates that the Beast of the Earth is already in existence and has authority as of the time the 4th Seal opens. The Beast from the Earth is not the fourth horseman, but rather the fourth horseman works under him somehow. There are three horsemen that appear before this, the third is Famine, the second is War, and the first horseman is the Conqueror.

 

Who is the First Horseman, the Conqueror?

And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. Rev 6:1-2

The First horseman is not the fallen angel Beast Abaddon. The fallen angel Abaddon is not released from the Abyss until the 5th Trumpet, a time long after the first Seal. So the first horseman cannot be the fallen angel Beast Abaddon. The fallen angel Beast Abaddon is the one that everyone will worship. So we can know this rider on the white horse cannot be the one that everyone will worship as a “god”.

Some people argue that the rider on the white horse is symbolic of a counterfeit Jesus, as Jesus Christ also appears on a white horse when He returns. This is a striking symbolic parallel which could indicate the rider on the white horse in the first Seal is a counterfeit of Jesus Christ in some way. Assuming this line of reasoning is sound, as it seems to be, then the appropriate analogy must be made:

God the Father, is to Jesus Christ

As

The Beast from the Sea, is to the Beast from the Earth

Or

The fallen angel Abaddon, is to the False Prophet.

Because

He who is worshipped as ultimate, is to His prophet

As such, it is the False Prophet who is counterfeit to Jesus Christ, and Abaddon who is counterfeit to God. The people will worship the fallen angel Abaddon, whereas they should worship God. The false prophet serves Abaddon, as Jesus Christ serves God (though He is also God.) Jesus Christ is both man and God, and in the Bible is called a prophet of God (Luke 24:19) and also a servant of God (Zech 3:8). And in the same way the False Prophet serves Abaddon, and is a counterfeit of Jesus in these respects. The False Prophet is a man, and serves the false “god” Abaddon who the people worship.

Therefore, if the rider on the white horse is symbolic of a counterfeit of Jesus Christ, then the rider on the white horse is the False Prophet. But as he does not become a False Prophet until after Abaddon is released, he is earlier just called the Beast from the Earth. This man apparently is a conqueror before he becomes the False Prophet. Being a false prophet is not his assumed role until after the fallen angel Abaddon is released. So the first horseman on a white horse may be the Beast from the Earth (later called the False Prophet) who starts off as a conqueror. However, he cannot be the one who will later be worshipped, the fallen angel Abaddon, as Abaddon “is not” until he is released from the Abyss at the time of the 5th Trumpet.

 

Is the first horseman the Beast from the Earth/ False Prophet?

If the first horseman is the False Prophet (before he actually becomes a false prophet), then he is distinct from the other 3 horsemen. This would give us the numbers 1 and 3.

These numbers are mentioned in another passage of scripture pertaining to the end times, which is outside of the book of Revelation, which is Daniel 7.

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it [was] diverse from all the beasts that [were] before it; and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn [were] eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment [was] white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne [was like] the fiery flame, [and] his wheels [as] burning fire. Dan 7:7-9

These great beasts, which are four, [are] four kings, [which] shall arise out of the earth. Dan 7:17

Four beasts are shown to Daniel, who are four kings that will arise. The fourth Beast mentioned above is both a kingdom and a king. This Beast has 10 horns on his head. But a little horn grows up which displaces 3 of the 10 horns, which means that the little horn is an 11th horn. But this 1 little horn is also correlated to 3 horns, so here we see the numbers 3 and 1.

Then I would know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceeding dreadful, whose teeth [were of] iron, and his nails [of] brass; [which] devoured, brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; And of the ten horns that [were] in his head, and [of] the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even [of] that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look [was] more stout than his fellows. I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them; Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom.

Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom [are] ten kings [that] shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. But the judgment shall sit, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy [it] unto the end. And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom [is] an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Dan 7:19-27

The Beast here is a king, and a kingdom. This shows the 4th Beast himself is the king of this final kingdom before Jesus Christ’s return, which corresponds to Abaddon as this relates to Revelation. The 10 horns on the head of the Beast are also ten kings, but because they are on the head of the Beast, this shows they are under the authority of the king who is the Fourth Beast. There is an 11th horn which displaces 3 horns, of the ten horns which are these ten kings. This 11th horn that displaced 3 is given dominion, or power, even though ultimately he is still under the authority of the king that is himself the fourth Beast, which is Abaddon.

The fourth Beast corresponds to the fallen angel Beast Abaddon. The ten horns correspond to the 10 horns of the Beast Abaddon, and these are 10 human kings.

The 11th horn corresponds to the False Prophet / Beast from the Earth.

It is significant here that the 11th horn displaces 3 horns in particular. This is a story about 1 horn and 3 horns, or 4 horns total, just as there are 4 horsemen in the first 4 Seals of Revelation. It therefore seems possible that the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th horsemen may be 3 of the ten kings who will later reign under the fallen angel Abaddon. If these riders are individual men, then this allows for 3 of them to be 3 of the ten kings. But this may mean the First Horseman is the 11th horn, who is the False Prophet/Beast from the Earth. He overshadows and displaces the 3 other horsemen.

It seems unlikely that the numbers 3 and 1 (which total 4) is just coincidental, but rather there are 4 horns which interact in Daniel 7, and 1 is an 11th horn with more power and prominence. And there are 4 horsemen in Revelation, and 1 who is more prominently seen as coming first, and riding a white horse, and this in sharp contrast to Jesus Christ.

The Visual Symbolism in Revelation matches the interpretation that the 1st rider is the false prophet.  God the Father is the true God, and Abaddon falsely claims to be God, and so analogously: Abaddon (a fallen angel) counterfeits God, and Jesus Christ (besides being the only begotten son of God, and God also) is a man, and also called a Prophet in the Bible. So the false prophet is the counterfeit to Jesus Christ who is a man (also) and true prophet, whereas the false prophet is also a man, and a false prophet (of Abaddon who claims to be god). Jesus Christ is represented in visual symbolism in the book of Revelation as being a lamb, and riding a white horse.

And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth….Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. Rev 5:6,12

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. Rev 19:11

The False prophet (Beast from the Earth) is also visually symbolized as being like a lamb:

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. Rev 13:11

So, counterfeit to Jesus Christ, it makes sense that the false prophet is also symbolically represented on a white horse:

And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. Rev 6:2

So there seem to be a lot of reason to think that the First horseman is the false prophet, the Beast from the Earth, who starts off as some sort of conqueror. The fourth horseman kills people “under the Beast from the Earth”, and this fact also supports the idea that the “Beast from the Earth” is already present, on the scene, by the time of the 4th Seal. And so it seems very likely that the rider of the white horse in the First Seal is the Beast from the Earth. And after the fallen angel Abaddon is released, the “Beast from the Earth” causes people to worship Abaddon. Only then does he gain the descriptive title of the “False Prophet”. But at first it seems he starts off not as a false prophet, but as some sort of conqueror.

 

The First Seal and the False Prophet

This brings us back to who is? the False Prophet, the rider on the white horse of the first Seal.

“And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.”

He already has a bow, and is given a crown. He goes out “conquering to conquer” or “conquering to victory”. Later, we know he is the one who causes all people to take the mark of the Beast, and people cannot buy or sell without it. This indicates he has power over some sort of banking or currency system. Is it possible that in conquering he has gained control over the banking system? The white horse would seem to possibly symbolize a less violent type of conquering.

It may be the conquering taking place may be a financial conquering, either of banks or of corporations. It may be that the rider on the white horse is someone from a Corporation who owns most of the world or banks, somehow. And so it seems the rider on the white horse could be of a conquering banking Corporation, or affiliated with it.

But at some point he is given a crown, which may be symbolic of some large authority.

If this is the case that the Beast of the Earth/ false prophet is the rider on the white horse, and that this refers to (perhaps) someone in a large corporation, even a banking corporation, then it is possible that this conquering is going on financially, behind the scenes and it would not be obviously noticeable to the public.

As such, it seems possible that the First Seal of Revelation may have already opened.

(Note, for more research, he also seems to be mentioned/referenced in Ezekiel 39:3-5…)

 

The Second Seal

The Second Seal describes War, and the second rider may be one of the 10 kings who reign with the Beast Abaddon after he appears.

And there went out another horse [that was] red: and [power] was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

The description here is of people killing one another; under the influence of what may one of the ten kings. He has the power to take peace from the earth, to cause war among the people so that they kill each other. He does not kill them personally, but he causes them to kill one another. As such this rider on the red horse seems to be getting people to fight with each other over some reason, some cause for the war. It says that he is given a “great sword” and this seems to be what he uses, not to kill people himself, but to cause them to kill one another.

The biggest greatest symbolic sword in the world today, as far as I can tell, is the concept of the “sword of Allah” as relates to the Muslim religion. Most Muslims would say that the message of Mohammed is not meant to be spread with violence. But there are some jihad extremists who are well-known by now for violence. The events of 9-11 have led to several military wars into the Middle East. There have been countless terrorist attacks, and the US currently describes itself to be in a “War on Terror”. Some people account the source of violent Muslim extremism to be in extremist groups located in Saudi Arabia and grown from there.

It is interesting that the Saudi Flag features a sword on it, which some people account to be the “Sword of Allah”. The flag reads, “No God but Allah, and Mohammed is his prophet”.

 

If this rider refers to the “Sword of Allah”, with all the many conflicts with extremist Muslim terrorism and the actions of the US in the “War on Terror”, then it seems possible that the Second Seal may have already opened.

 

The Third Seal

The Third Seal is Famine, http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/price-shocks-food-shortages-and-global-economic-riots-in-2011

There are food shortages globally in places now, and it seems they will get worse and become more widespread. It is possible the Third Seal could be opening soon.

The 5th Trumpet, “Aliens”, Return of the “sons of God” of Genesis 6, other horse-creatures

The horse-locusts come with Abaddon, their description seems literal. 5 months later the 4 angel bound at the Euphrates are let loose and seem to appear (perhaps this is a Vision-ary army but with seeming Physicality) as 200 million horse creatures also, though slightly different. Their description also seems literal. That their description is literal seems confirmed in Joel, which seems to encompass the 5th and 6th trumpets.

“Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for [it is] nigh at hand; A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, [even] to the years of many generations. A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land [is] as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. The appearance of them [is] as the appearance of horses; and as horsemen, so shall they run. Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, like the noise of a flame of fire that devoureth the stubble, as a strong people set in battle array. Before their face the people shall be much pained: all faces shall gather blackness. They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks: shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and [when] they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining: the LORD shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp [is] very great: for [he is] strong that executeth his word: for the day of the LORD [is] great and very terrible; and who can abide it? Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye [even] to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for he [is] gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.” Joel 2

“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment [was] as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. And the shapes of the locusts [were] like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads [were] as it were crowns like gold, and their faces [were] as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as [the teeth] of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings [was] as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power [was] to hurt men five months. And they had a king among them, [which is] the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue [is] Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath [his] name Apollyon.” Rev 9:1-11

These horse creatures will likely also be interpreted as “aliens”, and nothing short of an “alien invasion” which accompanies the arrival of the Abaddon, and then all the more with the two witnesses.

As the Beast Abaddon looks human and has supernatural powers, and the two witnesses also look human and seem to have supernatural powers (work miracles), it seems likely that the Beast Abaddon will try to convince the world that the 2 Witnesses are also “aliens” who he is in conflict with. It also seems likely that Abaddon will attribute the army of 200 million to be related to the 2 Witnesses, or blame them for the deaths cause by this army, which will kill 1/3 of the Earth.

There are also the “3 evil spirits like frogs” which seems to describe genetically engineered “gray aliens” which are created by Satan, the False Prophet, and Abaddon, (come out of the mouth of, like God spoke the world into being), animal-monsters made to look like grays, possessed of demons to act intelligent, which seem to become present during the 6th Trumpet, though at the latest by the 7th Trumpet and 7 Bowls of Wrath.  (Also see http://paradoxbrown.com/aliensinthebookofrevelation.htm/  http://paradoxbrown.com/aliens-book-of-revelation-part2.htm/)

Also, Chris White has made a good case that Mystery Babylon during these days must be Jerusalem, which indicates the Beast Abaddon will be reigning from there. It seems likely that he does not enter the sanctuary of the temple (but only is permitted in the outer court) because of the presence of the Two witnesses, who probably keep him out until he kills them, and only then is Abaddon able to enter the sanctuary. Once Abaddon enters the sanctuary, it seems he sends for the kings/armies to come to destroy Jerusalem, which is Mystery Babylon. (It seems the 2 witnesses will be killed in the evening, and raised in the morning, so as to constitute 3.5 days.)

Once they attack Jerusalem, Jesus returns, and what was the attack on Jerusalem turns right around into the battle of Armageddon and the treading of the winepress of God.

Then the dead are raised, and the living are gathered from around the earth, and also the living who were Raptured 6th Seal are gathered from heaven. This is followed by the judgment by the elders, and the beginning of the millennial reign. 40 days into the millennial reign marks the 1335 day, as seen on the timeline.

 

Conclusion: The Most Important End Times Message: To Know and Love Jesus Christ and to Love Each Other

It seems not all of the church will be raptured. Mainly the church of Philadelphia is given the strongest prophecy of being raptured, some of Sardis, and it seems only a minority from the others, and it seems the time is short (the sign of the end of the age of the Gentiles being the Gospel preached to all nations – estimated to be 30-50 years from now (dated 2012)). Some Catholics, Protestants, and Laodiceans (many in the American church) will not be raptured, and will be here for this, but can be raptured if they repent and overcome within their church, or perhaps should just join the church of Philadelphia.

See the letters here for much more detailed explanation:
