The Image of the Beast; Can We Overcome the Mark? [part II] And the third angel followed them, sayiing with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in the forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; ... REVELATION 14: 9-10 THE BEGINNING of this System; About 2000 Years Ago... The Bible refers to, not only one government but, at times, several governments as A BEAST, and the reason for this would be based upon a beginning time or birth of its system, and a method used by its organizers to maintain their systems. Therefore, the actual system was related to the very nature of its organizers in relation to the natures of certain creatures [i.e. animals, beast]. What would be ‘the image’ of the Beast or government? The short answer would be ‘White Supremacy’ but, in various forms and not just white people, white gods or white idols. Most people who have attended Black/African American Churches are not taught from the Book of Revelations based upon my experiences from my youth up until this present day. As a result of this avoidance, a general atmosphere of fear has emanated throughout the black culture regarding this last and most important book of the Bible. Fear can be a dangerous wall that completely blocks vital solutions to today’s problems. Why would it be most important to understand? Because it references issues that revolve around these very times, issues that could help people make better decisions about their personal well being. If a person fears for his safety that would be a natural mechanism of self preservation but, if that same person fears for the safety of his child or perhaps, an aged protector then fear goes out the window. Therefore, knowledge and power would also be based upon charity; giving of oneself to protect another. This kind of self sacrifice leads souls to want to learn more and to want to know more about boundless security. And that would be where spirit and will power must take over. This kind of drive and self determination leads a person to search for answers outside of what this government has to offer under its statehood and federal Constitution; mankind’s book of laws. Fear of the living God should take precedence over the fear of what this government can and has done. The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. And the only way to gain a better understanding beyond what mankind can offer would be to search outside of the law; this government’s laws. Search for an answer as to just why did this very system separate the Church from the State. And out of all of the books in the Bible, the very last book in the Bible provides the full answer. It will lead back to about 2000 years ago when in fact this book in the Bible was written. The Book of Revelations leads to a better understanding beyond what this government’s educational systems have to offer. Just like the Pentatuch, it was written by the hand of mankind but it was dictated from the mouth of a higher being, a spirit. Jehovah dictated the Pentatuch to Moses whereas Jesus dictated most of the Book of Revelations to John. Jehovah and Jesus. Yaweh and Yehoshua... Therefore, the Book of Revelations was written by John based upon a vision that he had in which higher spirits spoke to him directly about these last days. John wrote his book during the time of the Roman empire and it would be that same system upon which today’s powerful western civilizations have modeled their governments upon. Therefore, in order to even understand our government today, we need to go back to its origin; the Roman empire. Cont. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. REVELATIONS 21:8 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. ST MATTHEW 10:28. But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him. ST LUKE 2:5. Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. REVELATIONS 4:17.
