Victory Over The Beast

December 15, 2012

beastEcc 3:18  I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

The purpose of this post is to help those given ears to hear come to see that there truly is nothing good that dwells in our flesh and that we like Paul are all wretched men and the chief of sinners.

1Ti 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.

All of us have been created as beasts, marred in the hands of the potter and are of our father the devil until our day of judgment and salvation arrives.  If we do not agree with this then we have not been shown that all men are truly beasts.   But maybe God willing, that will change.  Let him hear who has been given ears to hear these things.

If you came here expecting to read about some global conspiracy theory about the US Government or the Pope being the beast or the Antichrist  you came to the right place because if you are faithful to read this post, you should be freed of wondering after that dispensational “end of the world” nonsense that has so many preoccupied and always updating their theories.  But let’s begin at what the third angel says, noting that three is always the number of judgment and its process in Scripture.  These angels are pronouncing judgment against the beast and all who worship his image and receive his mark.

Rev 14:9  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

And here is the judgment.  These shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God and be tormented before the angels in the presence of the lamb.

Rev 14:10  The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

The mystery of God is indeed a mystery and has been hidden from the eyes of men.  Most think this verse is speaking of eternal hell but like all such verses used by men, it means what it means and it does not meant that whatsoever.  Lest we forget, let’s keep one very important verse in mind as we read in the Book of Revelation.

Rev 1:3 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.

Blessed (not burned in hell) is the man or woman who is reading these prophecies in Revelation 13 and 14, when they also “hear” these words and keep them (actually live them, do them) for the time of THEIR SALVATION is at hand.  It is only in God’s appointed times for each of us that the veil that blinds ALL OF US, is removed and we shall see the truth.   This mystery is the revealing of Jesus Christ to us, to our inward man.  Such revealing comes with judgment and through much tribulation as has been discussed in recent posts.  These verses above from Revelation speak of this good news, it speaks of all of us, beginning with God’s Elect, drinking of the wine of the wrath of God.  This is how our heavens and earth, that are inside of us are purified.

Salvation means being delivered from sin and its power over our lives.  Salvation is sure and will come to all flesh in the end but we must wait upon the Lord and His appointed times.  First  the beast that all men are must live by all the words that God has spoken and when we hear HIS WORD, spiritually speaking,   then our judgment will begin and this beast will be destroyed.

Joh 12:47  And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

Joh 12:48  He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

The last day is not referring to the end of the cosmos/world but the end of our carnal age.  It is speaking about when we are given the gift of Faith and the ears to hear the word that brings judgment.  It begins at HIS HOUSE,  the Elect, the chosen ones, so chosen before the world began.

1Pe 4:17  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

What this judgment is all about, is destroying the seven headed ten horned beast that lives within all of us.  We shall surely die said God.

ALL MEN ARE BEASTS

We all will worship the beast.  That is you and me every time we look into the mirror.

Rev 14:9  And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

So many that know the word only in the flesh take these things and apply them outwardly to worldly events but they speak nothing of the sort.  All of us will worship our beast and its image and will receive this mark on our hands or in our forehead.

 Ecc 3:18  I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that God might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts.

Ecc 3:19  For that which befalleth the sons of men befalleth beasts; even one thing befalleth them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all is vanity.

Ecc 3:20  All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again.

Beast are made to be destroyed in their appointed time.  The purposes of this life is to teach us good and evil so we will become like God and when He appears to His Elect we will be like Him.   God is in the process of saving many thru the few.  He is preparing the judges who will judge the world in righteousness in the ages to come.

1Co 6:2  Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?

1Co 6:3  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?

The purposes of flesh and carnal minds,  the marred vessel of clay, conceived in sin and inequity is for God to later destroy it once it accomplishes its purposes.  God seeks an occasion against all flesh and will in the appointed times for all men destroy the carnality and the mind of the beast we all are given at birth.  Here is the good news of salvation coming thru the destruction of our beast.

Eze 33:26  Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile every one his neighbour’s wife: and shall ye possess the land?

Eze 33:27  Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; As I live, surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.

Eze 33:28  For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none shall pass through.

Eze 33:29  Then shall they know that I am the LORD, when I have laid the land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have committed.

Only once this beast is judged and being destroyed will we know that HE IS THE LORD.

Folly of Beast Logic

Rom 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

A beast will never willingly admit and agree with the Apostle’s Paul’s startling statement.  A beast will need to be brought by God in their appointed time to understand what Paul was saying which applies to all men.

The beast innately thinks he is good and man made in the flesh was the image of God versus an initial step to teach us.  Beasts will continue to believe they are or can be good and don’t really need a Savior except to make intellectual ascent.  But the truth is, all of us beasts are sown in dishonor only to be destroyed in God’s timing and made new.

1Co 15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
1Co 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
1Co 15:45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
1Co 15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

We are sown a beast.  The fact is flesh and blood, which is what defines the beast that we all are cannot enter into the kingdom.  This corrupt beast must be destroyed.  That is God’s plan for the ages.

 1Co 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

Does being made in dishonor and sown in corruption sound like what God has temporarily made was considered good?

Rom 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

Flesh and blood nor dust shall inherit the kingdom of God. Dust must return from where it came. It must die.  It shall surely die God said to Adam.  That was His purposes in creating these flesh bodies of clay, marred in His hands.

Adam and Eve were naked long before they ate off the tree. That does not mean they had no clothes, it means they were full of sin as that is what flesh is, it is sin. Christ Himself was made sin for us, yet without sin. But nakedness clearly to those given ears means a sinful person.  We are made virtual sinning machines and the lusts of our father the devil we all will want to do.

Gen 2:25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

I guess David was completely deceived also when he wrote:

Psa 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.

Solomon must have been an idiot too based on the gospel believed by most.

Ecc 7:20 For there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.

The prophet Jeremiah was a fool speaking false words also?

Jer 18:3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
Jer 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

There is nothing good in being made marred? Nothing and yet carnal men want to argue flesh is good.

I guess Paul also was deceived when he wrote this epistle also.

Rom 8:20 For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,
Rom 8:21 Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Christ and Paul had it right when they said:

Mar 10:18 And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.

Rom 7:17  Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

Rom 7:18  For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

Very few are given the faith to believe these truths and very many are led and ensnared by the traditions of man and its churches.  These believes that flesh is good and we are good people is the delusion God gives us over to based on the idols of our heart.  Our beastly pride blinds us from all the truths of God and we will live in strong delusion until our day of doom, the day of destruction appointed for our beast arrives.  Here is a great chapter that speaks to salvation coming to man, the destruction of the beast, yet our traditions liken this to some kind of eternal punishment.  LOL.

Eze 7:6  An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold, it is come.

Eze 7:7  The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains.

Eze 7:8  Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine abominations.

Eze 7:9  And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the LORD that smiteth.

Eze 7:10  Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning is gone forth; the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.

God will show NO PITY on our beast when our day of judgment arrives.  NONE.   Our beast will become an extremely self righteous beast, having great confidence in its flesh and good works and decisions to be involved in religious activities.  When we are at this points, we are in total spiritual darkness yet like Saul of Tarsus think we are actually serving God.

Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

But this beast is nothing more than a child of our father the devil with outward forms of godliness.  It’s day of destruction has not yet come.

The Calling of the Beast

So with this background let’s take a look at the process God uses to bring salvation to men.  His ways are certainly not our ways and His thoughts not aligned with our carnal thoughts and the philosophy of this world and man’s religious traditions

When God first calls a man, that man comes out of the sea, which is a symbol for all humanity, the flesh of all men.

 Rev 13:1  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.

We all are this beast and we come having seven heads and ten horns.  What this means is we are a complete and total beast (seven is number of completion) and the ten horns are the perfect doctrine we think we hold as truth.  We are still under the law of sin and death and the 10 commandments at this time.  We then go out and speak words of blasphemy against the true God.  We will condemn and judge all others, look down upon sinners and our journey into Babylon has just begun.  God is in the process of sending us strong delusion as we will believe the lie of the serpent.

Gen 3:4  And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die

We do not yet realize that God created all flesh and carnal minds to destroy them in the appointed time.  We will be trying to hold on to our life in this flesh which is what beasts do.  We will oppose the true things of God and twist and pervert the truth to justify our beast.

Rev 13:2  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.

We are likened to a leopard here meaning our true beast nature is hidden (camouflaged) and yet we are quick of feet to run after the flesh and we have a mouth as our father the devil, the roaring lion who seeks to devour.  Our power is from the dragon, our father the devil and we are on our way to take our seat on God’s rightful throne in our hearts.

Rev 13:3  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.

The entire world, ALL MEN will wonder after our beast.  We cannot help but do this, this is how God has made us in these marred and weak vessels of clay.  It is God’s plan for us all to fall backward into deception with the WORD when we first are given the pull and desire to know the things of God.  We must spend our appointed time in Babylon.

Isa 28:13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.

It is the outward changes we begin to see when we are dragged in the WORD that God actually uses to keep us bound in deception.  These are tough things to understand but reveal the mystery of God’s plan for the ages and His Elect.

Rev 13:14  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.

But our beast nature is wounded by the word of God.  God has put the desire in our hearts to know His word and this sword we will begin to study and learn, yet still in the flesh and according to the traditions of men.  These traditions have us go right into a church, we must join a church and get involved we are admonished by men.

This is God sending us into Babylon.  Before we can come out of Babylon, we first must go into Babylon which is likened to the wilderness in the stories of ancient Israel.

Everyone has to go to church we are told.   So we go into a religious setting and are made to feel comfortable in our skin and sold the 10 second sinners prayer or our active membership in the denomination as the way of salvation.  This has the effect of healing our deadly wound that the WORD (the sword) initially caused.  And then just as it says, we continue to wonder after the beast (ourselves) and are now simply becoming religious.

Rev 13:4  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?

So please understand,  the churches of men serve a very valuable purpose in God’s plan.  He ordained all things, even the apostate churches of men.  They serve God’s purposes in blinding the whole world (we will get into this below) and calling people out of Egypt.  But this is just the interim stop for God’s Elect, they will come out of Babylon in their appointed times.  They will have no choice in the matter.

Eze 38:3  And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

Eze 38:4  And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords:

But like Revelation 13:4 says above,  who is like unto the beast?  This is self worship that we all will live and do.  We get hooked into doing many good works and things and participate in morally good activities and in these things we begin to boast.  I, ME, MY is what beasts do which is self worship which is actually bringing glory and honor to their father the devil, the dragon himself.  Our image of God at this point is all self focused, what can God do for me?  We pray for the physical things and ask God to fulfill for us the lusts of our flesh.  We pray amiss and get nothing from God and we do not yet even know Him.  Yet we will not receive correction or rebuke,  the true living WORD we cannot yet hear.  No war can be advanced against our flesh as of yet.  Sure there will be some outward changes in habits and behavior, perhaps even great deliverances from addiction and substances.  And these outward signs are just God keeping us bound in spiritual darkness until our appointed day of destruction arrives.  The fiery word God that makes war on our flesh cannot work until we are given ears to hear.

Rev 13:5  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.

So for the first part of our walk, this symbolic 3.5 years (first half of our 7 years)  we speak great blasphemies against God.  We believe and speak of eternal hell, we take credit and boast in our free will decision to choose God and we actually believe we are good and that our flesh itself can be perfected.  We boast in all the good things we are doing for God in the strength of our flesh.  We are all just fulfilling these words of JOB.  Just look at this self righteous beast exalting himself and glorying in his filthy rags works of the flesh.

Job 29:12  Because I delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him.

Job 29:13  The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon me: and I caused the widow’s heart to sing for joy.

Job 29:14  I put on righteousness, and it clothed me: my judgment was as a robe and a diadem.

Job 29:15  I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.

Job 29:16  I was a father to the poor: and the cause which I knew not I searched out.

Job 29:17  And I brake the jaws of the wicked, and plucked the spoil out of his teeth.

Job 29:18  Then I said, I shall die in my nest, and I shall multiply my days as the sand.

Job 29:19  My root was spread out by the waters, and the dew lay all night upon my branch.

Job 29:20  My glory was fresh in me, and my bow was renewed in my hand.

Job 29:21  Unto me men gave ear, and waited, and kept silence at my counsel.

Job 29:22  After my words they spake not again; and my speech dropped upon them.

Job 29:23  And they waited for me as for the rain; and they opened their mouth wide as for the latter rain.

Wow.  Just look at this beast that lives in all of us.  Me, Myself and I.  So many of us boast in all the good things we do for God not knowing we are simply living as beast under the hedge of God’s protection.  The last posts on Learning Good and Evil spoke about this God’s plan to leave us alone to live in peace until our day of judgment arrives.  CLICK HERE TO ACCESS THAT POST, a very good read.

What a righteous person this is, doing many good things and serving God in their flesh.  This is not the kind of worshippers God wants,  He needs nothing from  a man and He builds His church in his appointed times.

Act 17:25  Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

We continue in self exalted religious reign for 42 months, or 3.5 years, this not being literal but a symbolic period of time known only to God.  In my personal walk, when God called me back to Him,  it was amazingly exactly 42 months from when I started until I rose up out of the earth as this second vile beast in late 2008.

Rev 13:6  And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

And none of us will ever see this until after it  has happened.  We will only see when we HEAR the voice of the Lord and Jesus shows it to  us.  It says John TURNED when he hear this voice behind him.

Rev 1:10  I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,

This is when I began this blog site,   I was certainly lead of God to do it but all my prior work was blaspheming the true God and persecuting His saints.  We have no clue that we are doing it, we truly think we are serving God and no man can convince us otherwise.

Joh 16:2  They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

And Christ tells us why we will do this to the Saints.  Because we do not know HIM.

Joh 16:3  And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

We will persecute the true brethren, those that know and worship Christ in Spirit and dwell in heaven. Heaven and the kingdom of God is within us said Christ and those that walk by the Spirit will be hated by us beasts and we will speak all manner of evil against them.  I am now on the other end of this exchange and can see it clearly.

Rev 13:7  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.

The new spiritual man that is trying to emerge from within us as well as that in others professing Christians will be attacked by our judgments and accusations and will for the time be overcome.  The new man, the spiritual man will be laid low and we will remain firmly entrenched in the world and its traditions.  This battle begins within ourselves but extends to those in in the world.

Rev 13:8  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.

This is all men who will ever live.  The heavens and the earth are inside of us. Even the Elect will first worship the beast and have their names erased from the Book of Life.

Exo 32:33  And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me, him will I blot out of my book.

All men sin.  All men defile the temple of God, which temple we are.  So all of us begin with our names in the book and are erased from the Book and in our appointed times will be reinstated.  This begins with the firstfruits, the Elect of God. Only those ELECT who have gotten the victory over the beast will have their names reinstated into the Book of Life.  We must overcome the beast and that is when we are put back into the book.

Rev 3:5  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.

John saw looking backward in his vision,  who the overcomers were that stood on the sands of the sea (flesh) and had gotten the victory over their beast.

Rev 15:2  And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.

This is salvation!!  Getting the victory over our beast.  Only those the Father has given to Christ will have the ability to hear these words and to understand them.

Rev 13:9  If any man have an ear, let him hear.

I hope some of you are hearing this.  I know it will not be many, it will be very few.  Any even for those, it may be a times, a times and half of time before you understand.  We just plant the seeds and water those others have planted and God will give the increase in the appointed times.  It is the truth and the truth is what God’s chosen instruments will speak.

Mat 22:14  For many are called, but few are chosen.

In God’s strange act,  those religious beast we are, we lead others into captivity and go ourselves into captivity.  Shut up in total spiritual darkness.  We that kill by God’s word will also ourselves be killed by God’s words.  The beast will be slain by the word of God.  Thanks be to God for that.

Rev 13:10  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.

Now being led of God and drinking of strong delusion, we go right smack into captivity and bondage.  We ourselves are now using the sword, the Word of God, the Bible to persecute people, condemn them and judge others.  This is especially true of those who we encounter who are the Elect of God and correct us in our erroneous doctrine and things such as an eternal hell.  We will ignorantly continue to kick against the goads and persecute Christ Himself by virtue of persecuting His Body.  Christ tells us this plainly when speaking with Saul of Tarsus.

Act 9:4  And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?

Act 9:5  And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

The Elect will all come to the place where they truly think they are serving God but they are just living strong delusion and that is the next evolution of our beast.

Rev 13:11  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

Once we have been walking in the Word but are yet carnal we will have become a very self righteous beast.  With our deadly wound now being fully healed by our participation in external fleshly works and good deeds and active participation in the church institutions of men,  this new beast arises out of the earth.  We are the earth, the earth represents our flesh the land that Christ is going to lay desolate in the appointed time.

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Jer 22:29  O earth, earth, earth, hear the word of the LORD.

In this next stage of our beastly progression, we now are described as having two horns like a lamb yet still speaking like a dragon.  We are of our father the devil just as the jews that believed on Jesus were so described by the Lord Himself.

Joh 8:44  Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

This beast will fool all but the very Elect.  It will have external forms of godliness and is likely doing many good things in the flesh to serve God.  But we still speak as a dragon and the true motives of Me, Myself and I are at the heart of all that we do.  We live to please ourselves and gain the favor of men, we are not yet living for God yet this is still all unknown to us at this time.

Rev 13:12  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.

All of our religion is defiled and is based on the flesh.  We have now become the abomination that is causing desolation in our own spiritual hearts but we know it not yet.  God has not revealed the truth to us and we cannot hear the true living WORD that will expose all of this.  But that is fixing to change as there is a day and hour appointed for each of us when Jesus Christ will be revealed to us.  This is the whole reason this book is titled,  THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST.  It is the revealing of Christ to us spiritually, in the new man that God is bringing forth from the darkness that we all were created in.

Deceived Thru Signs and Wonders

Rev 13:13  And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

Rev 13:14  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles (SIGNS) 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 this is how God truly keeps us blind.  We see outward changes in ourselves and others we speak with on the things of God.  This is the fire coming down from heaven in the sight of men.  It is the same as Paul spoke to the early church.

2Th 2:9  Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders,

2Th 2:10  And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

2Th 2:11  And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

The signs and the wonders may be true but their purpose is to keep us in spiritual darkness.  There is none better than the Lord to keep self righteous beasts chained in spiritual darkness awaiting their day of judgment. Of course carnal traditions equate all of this with the demonic doctrine of an eternal hell.

Jud 1:6  And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Yet God’s ways are not our ways.  The way to coming to know Him in Spirit, which is eternal life,  is by first getting madly drunk and walking in strong delusion.

Deu 29:6 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drinkthat ye might know that I am the LORD your God.

None of us will ever come to know the true God until we first drink of strong drink and get drunk with wine. These of course speak to spiritual things and refer to the fact that all men will come under strong delusions FIRST before they come to know the truth and are set free. Man will truly live by every word in the Scriptures, we will live them all spiritually.  There is no avoiding this process, it is ordained for all men.

Jer 49:12  For thus saith the LORD; Behold, they whose judgment was not to drink of the cup have assuredly drunken; and art thou he that shall altogether go unpunished? thou shalt not go unpunished, but thou shalt surely drink of it.

Jer 25:28  And it shall be, if they refuse to take the cup at thine hand to drink, then shalt thou say unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Ye shall certainly drink.

Jer 25:29  For, lo, I begin to bring evil on the city which is called by my name, and should ye be utterly unpunished? Ye shall not be unpunished: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth, saith the LORD of hosts.

God is working all things, good and evil to bring about His purposes.  And His purposes is we all go into Babylon and get madly drunk with wine.

And we are even told how God accomplishes this strong delusion and keeps us bound in spiritual darkness all the while deceiving us into thinking we are really serving Him. It is because of the “signs and wonders” we see when we are first called of God that we believe we are already standing in the truth — yet we are still in the wilderness waiting for our appointed time for judgment. Here is how these beasts, which is all of us, are caught in the grip of strong delusion.

Rev 13:13 And he doeth great SIGNS (wonders), so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, THIS IS YOU AND ME BEGINNING TO KNOW AND SPEAK ABOUT THINGS OF GOD!

Rev 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those SIGNS (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 these signs, deceive those who dwell on the earth (YOU AND ME). And so we use these signs to justify ourselves. We use these signs, these miracles of the outside changes in our live to build up the image of ourselves, which is the beast. One of our heads had been wounded by the WORD of GOD (the sword) when we were first called out of Egypt but was quickly healed when we fell back into the peace and safety environment of Babylon.

Before we come out of her my people our land will be laid desolate and our beast will still dwell in the land while we are gone mad, living in our strong delusion.  This is God’s way and His purposes but such things are indeed hard to understand and are strong meat.

Jer 50:37  A sword is upon their horses, and upon their chariots, and upon all the mingled people that are in the midst of her; and they shall become as women: a sword is upon her treasures; and they shall be robbed.

Jer 50:38  A drought is upon her waters; and they shall be dried up: for it is the land of graven images, and they are mad upon their idols.

Jer 50:39  Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation.

Many have great deliverances from ungodly things, addictions, lusts and the like.  The outside of our cup is markedly changed as the sword of the Lord, (HIS word) begins to work in our lives while we are still yet beasts.  These are great wonders and signs that just confirm in our deception that we are standing on the ROCK, but we are yet carnal and know Him not.

Fire is always a reference to the WORD OF GOD, and we use this word, this fire to effect change and do many good works and miracles. The word for miracles should really be SIGN if you research it and see how that Greek word is used in scores of other places. So we see outward SIGNS and changes and improvements in our life and think we have already arrived. The outside of cup is indeed being washed and we are now outwardly religious in many areas. Yet we remain a 7 headed beast and are of our father the devil still. At this point, we are “jews” who believe on Jesus as John 8 shows us but cannot hear His word, even though we will vehemently argue this just as those jews did with Christ.

Rev 13:3 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.

This mystery of inequity does already work but it will be revealed in the end of the age of our carnal minds.

2Th 2:3 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;
2Th 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.

This man, this son of perdition is YOU AND ME. This is all men.  This is the beast.

We all will live by every word. The way to knowing the Lord is thru strong drink and the judgment we all will reap for what we have sown. Many do err in their vision and are right smack in the middle of living Revelation 13.

Isa 28:7 But they also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment.

Pro 20:1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.

Here is True Wisdom

Rev 13:18  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 mark of the beast that many fear and speculate with all kinds of wild theories is just us and this beast that lives in all of us.  It is the mark of man and the number 6 refers to the flesh and 3X 6 is simple God bringing judgment on all flesh.  We all will take this mark before we are ever marked for God.  We will live by every word!

When we are so blessed by God to be given the gift of faith and shown that we are that beast, then we will truly be wise in the things of God.  When Christ shows us this, we will have no choice but to flee from Judea.

Mat 24:15  When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

Mat 24:16  Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

Mat 24:17  Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house

When we are shown this, we are told to get ready because the great tribulation not have been seen nor will not be seen forevermore is fixing to come upon us.  God must show it to you but only in our appointed times.

Mat 24:21  For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

And this is how God refines His sons.  He scourges them in the fire.  It is through much tribulation that we will enter the kingdom of God.

Isa 48:10  Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.

The beast is destroyed in this furnace!  We can only be on the highway to holiness once this beast is destroyed in us by the power of God.

Isa 35:8  And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.

Isa 35:9  No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:

 When we are given the new wine in a vessel, a body prepared to receive it then our beast shall be slain of the Lord.

Pro 9:1  Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:

Pro 9:2  She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.

When the ROCK that is Christ falls upon us we shall be crushed to powder and our beast shall be destroyed.  This is the mystery of godliness and how Christ is formed in us.

Eze 32:12  By the swords of the mighty will I cause thy multitude to fall, the terrible of the nations, all of them: and they shall spoil the pomp of Egypt, and all the multitude thereof shall be destroyed.

Eze 32:13  I will destroy also all the beasts thereof from beside the great waters; neither shall the foot of man trouble them any more, nor the hoofs of beasts trouble them.

Eze 32:14  Then will I make their waters deep, and cause their rivers to run like oil, saith the Lord GOD.

Eze 32:15  When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate, and the country shall be destitute of that whereof it was full, when I shall smite all them that dwell therein, then shall they know that I am the LORD.

Paul lets us know that ALL of us were once of our father the devil, following after the prince of the power of the air.  We all were children of wrath and it is thru that wrath that we come to know the Living God.

Eph 2:2  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:

Eph 2:3  Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

We all live in and the seven churches of revelation all live in us.  We will live by every word in our beastly nature until the day of the Lord, the day of doom and destruction of our beast arrives.

Dan 4:16  Let his heart be changed from man’s, and let a beast’s heart be given unto him; and let seven times pass over him.

The visions Daniel had tell us the same things the Book of Revelation does regarding our beastly nature and its destruction as the way of knowing the Lord.

Dan 7:3  And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.

Dan 7:4  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.

Dan 7:5  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.

Dan 7:6  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.

Dan 7:7  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.

Part of our learning and maturing in Christ, a big part of it actually, is learning to wrestle with the beasts of this earth.  This includes not only our old man, in that we need to die daily to that beast.  But it also includes dealing with our brothers and sisters who are still in Babylon and will persecute and hate us for coming out of her.

1Co 15:31  I protest by your rejoicing which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily.

1Co 15:32  If after the manner of men I have fought with beasts at Ephesus, what advantageth it me, if the dead rise not? let us eat and drink; for to morrow we die.

I have made many mistakes in my youth and have let that beast rise back up at times.  I have acted like Peter, being yet carnal and have smote the ears of those persecuting and attacking the truth.  If I have done that to you, please forgive me.  But I am learning God willing to stay dead to the beast and let the Lord do the fighting for me.

Joh 18:10  Then Simon Peter having a sword drew it, and smote the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus.

Joh 18:11  Then said Jesus unto Peter, Put up thy sword into the sheath: the cup which my Father hath given me, shall I not drink it?

Like Christ, we have to drink of the same cup.  We all have to come thru the wrath of God and be refined through judgment and great affliction.

Mat 20:23  And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with

We have got to remember that as long as we live these weak and marred vessels of clay,  that beast is still yet lurking and hence we have this mysterious saying.

Rev 17:8  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.

The beast was, is not and yet is.  We be crucified with Christ daily for this beast to stay dead and for us to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

To get the victory over the beast, we must first be brought to a place by God that we can be shown we are that beast.  That is what the word of God will do to us when we can hear it spiritually.  It will bring judgment and will accomplish its purposes.  That purpose is to slay the beast and bring about the revealing of Jesus Christ in our hearts.

Rev 19:11  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 19:12  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

Rev 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

The beast will be captured by the armies of God and will be cast into the lake of fire, which is the word of God where it will be consumed in the righteous judgment of God.  The purposes of God’s judgments are always for good and the destruction of our beast is a very good thing but it will be painful to the things we so highly esteem in this world.  Far greater blessing to have that beast destroyed here and now on this side of the grave rather than in the ages to come at the final judgment in the lake of fire.

I am going to end this here and hope it will help those for whom it is intended.  But all of these mysteries do not negate the simple truth and promise of this gospel of good news for all men.  All flesh shall see the salvation of the Lord in due time.  All men shall be saved and all beast shall be destroyed.

Luk 3:6  And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.

The slain of the Lord shall be very many beasts.  All beasts shall die in the end and all men shall be raised anew and live with God and He will dwell with men.  I will end this long post with a rendering of this very good news and the destruction of many beasts.

Isa 66:15 For, behold, the LORD will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire.
Isa 66:16 For by fire and by his sword will the LORD plead with all flesh: and the slain of the LORD shall be many.

    Gal 5:26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

    I have done the very thing this verse commands us not to do. Flesh and the beasts that live in flesh will want to do what comes naturally and that is to be the top dog. Flesh wants the glory and while it will even give the Lord 80% of it, the desire for even the smallest part of the glory will lead us to provoke and envy one another. Yet there is no sharing of God’s glory, HE will get 100% of it or else true peace will not be found in the land.

    When we desire vain glory, then we are walking in the flesh.

    Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
    Gal 5:20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
    Gal 5:21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
    Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
    Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
    Gal 5:24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
    Gal 5:25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
