Revelation 13 1-10 - Then I saw the sea beast performs with seven heads and ten horns, the horns had ten crowns upon his heads blasphemous name. The beast I saw was like Leopard, but her legs were like a bear and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave his power, his throne and great authority. One of his heads looked like a mortally wounded, but his deadly wound was healed. The whole country has gone in awe at the beast and the people worshiped the dragon who gave power unto the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like unto the beast? Who can fight with her? "

She got her mouth, which led the proud and profane language, and was given the power to act forty-two months. She opened her mouth to blaspheme God and insulted his name, his tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. And it was given to fight a war with the saints and to overcome them. She was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation: They adore her all the inhabitants of the earth, everyone whose name is not the creation of the world written in the book of life of the Lamb slain. If anyone has ears, let him hear. Who has to go into captivity shall go into captivity. Who should be killed with the sword, the sword.

One is the interpretation of biblical prophecy important - to them we can not in any way to upload their opinion or their prejudices. We must not "invent" what does each prophetic symbols. We can do as many false prophets who interpret the Scriptures, as it suits them. We must allow the Bible to interpret itself.

In my last article Who is the Antichrist? - Daniel Chapter 7 are studied by all the characters is only one power which satisfies all the features of the prophecy. It's Papal System. Just compare Bible prophecy with history and understand why the Roman Church for centuries forbade Bible reading and persecuted and murdered those who live by the truth.

The thickness of the little horn does not identify individual Catholics, but the papal system. Many people who adhere to the Church of Jesus Christ certainly love with all my heart. God really loves people seduction Apostolic Roman Catholic Church system. Therefore, given his word, so we can learn and recognize God's warning, hear the voice of Jesus and follow him.

Mark of the beast with a small corner of the book of Daniel is strikingly similar characteristics based on the sea beast of Revelation 13th

Sea (water) = nation, race (Revelation of John 17.15)

Beast (beast) = King or kingdom (Daniel 7,17)

1 The beast emerges from the sea (Revelation 13:1) Then I saw the sea beast appears.

"Beast" in prophecy represents a kingdom, nation or power. When the beast rises from the sea, it means that it is a power which arose in the densely populated territory to the territory where the number of people, nations and languages.

2nd He has ten horns and seven heads (Revelation 13:1) Then I saw the sea beast performs with seven heads and ten horns, the horns had ten crowns on their heads blasphemous name.

"Corners" in Bible prophecy represent the king, ruler or kingdom (see Daniel 7.24 and 8.21, Revelation 17.12). The beast has ten horns, can be found even in the seventh chapter of the book of Daniel. The beast that Daniel saw in vision, was the Roman Empire, which collapsed in ten successor states, represented by ten horns.

Revelation 17.9 - Whether you understand the one who is given wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits, and also seven kings. According to the Bible, then the seven heads represents the seven hills on which the "woman" (or "great city") sits. Now Rome is known as a city that was built on seven hills ...

3 Similar to other beasts (Revelation 13:2) And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, its feet like a bear's paws and his mouth as the mouth of the lion.

Daniel sees the symbolic beasts represent four empires that ruled the world since he lived until the fall of Rome. He sees them in reverse order of the apostle John, which is due to the fact that Daniel was looking ahead - the future (seeing was around. 553 BC), but the view was from Genoa to the past (seeing was around 1996 AD) So, looking back. Daniel saw the outside of a lion, bear and leopard, which is referred to as John in Revelation 13.2, the "fourth beast. It was horrifying and awful and had terrible power. With its huge iron teeth, devouring and crushing the rest tread down feet. Differed from all the beasts that preceded it, and had ten horns. "(Dan 7.7 B21)

In Daniel's prophecy of the four beasts that the lion represented Babylon, the bear Medo-Persia, Greece and the fourth leopard cub Rome.

What is certain is that we can find many similarities between the Roman Catholic system of religious and pagan religions of those powers. The Roman Church adopted and incorporated into its structure and refined many ways to worship and styles of government of the ancient kingdom.

The rites and ceremonies taken from Greek and Babylonian periods form the basis of most liturgies, feasts and ceremonies which the Roman Catholic Church observes. Even the titles used by the current pope as those used by early pagan religions and later monarchs, considered to be representative of the gods and sometimes the same gods.

Triple Crown, worn by the pope, is of Persian origin. Whoever she was crowned, was proclaimed "King of heaven, earth and underworld. It is not surprising that along with the triple crown of the Pope claiming that the pagan title.

Until now wears a pope and Catholic bishops and cardinals same clothes as the priests of the pagan god Dagon including bonnets in the shape of fish heads.

Roman Catholic doctrines such as infant baptism, sprinkling for baptism, the doctrine of immortality of the soul, prayers for the dead and worship of relics, repetitive prayer using Rosary, learning about indulgence on purgatory and eternal suffering in hell, the doctrine of salvation by works, the treasury merits of the dead "saints", the Mass, the observance of Sunday, etc., are taken directly from ancient Babylon. In short - when the 4th Century Constantine merged paganism with Christianity, opened the door false doctrines that gradually and subtly integrated into the religious system.

4 His power, throne and great authority from the dragon (Revelation 13:2) The dragon gave his power, his throne and great authority.

The Bible identifies the dragon in Revelation 20, 2 - He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan.

The beast got so much from Satan. There is a second possibility of interpretation. In Revelation 12 we read that "a great red dragon with seven heads and ten horns (the same characteristics as the fourth beast of Daniel 7 and the sea beast of Revelation 13), and seven crowns of their heads ... stood before the woman to give birth, to devour her child as soon as you give birth. But when she bore a son, a man who has all the foraging peoples iron rod, pulled her son to God and his throne. "(Revelation 12,3-5 B21)

Revelation 19,15-16 indicates that this son - a man who is foraging peoples iron rod is Christ. The dragon is not only Satan but also the UK, through which the devil tried to kill the newborn Jesus. Who shortly after the birth of Jesus ordered the slaughter of young children in Bethlehem? Of course, it was King Herod, who was the leader of the Roman Empire.

So we have another clue. Beast of the Sea received its power, throne and great authority from Rome and even from Satan. This is characteristic for the papacy Absolutely. It is a historical fact that the papacy is the only power that arose and usurped the power of Rome shortly after the fall of the Roman Empire. Why do you think this church is called the Roman Catholic?

5 The people I bow my country in front of her (Revelation 13,4.8) and the people worshiped the dragon who gave power unto the beast, and they worshiped the beast ... They adore her all the inhabitants of the earth.

The fact that the beast from the sea and still I bow my kneeling inhabitants of the land means that it renounce the divine honor, to revere it. Consequently, it is not just political power but also the religious power. I think it is clear that the Vatican meets these characteristics perfectly. We all know that not only the state, but also churches.

6th They speak proudly and blasphemies (Revelation 13,1.5-6) got a mouth, which led the proud and profane speech ... She opened her mouth to blaspheme God and insulted his name, his tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven.

What is blasphemy? Jan 10, 1933 - "We do not stone you for a good deed, but for blasphemy," The Jews answered him. "You're human, and doing of God himself!"

Mark 2, 7 - "What's he talking about? This is blasphemy! Who can forgive sins but God alone? "

When the beast from the sea, said that "He heads the name of blasphemy" or talking "blasphemies", it means that the leader of that Power claims to be God on Earth, and itself the right to forgive sins.

Does this character in the case of the papacy? Read the following quotes:

"The Pope has such great dignity and so exalted that it is not just a man ... ... Is like a God on earth, the only ruler of believers in Christ, the leader of the Kings, the fullness of power. "(Lucius Ferraris, Bibliotheca Prompt, 1793, vol VI, Papa II, p. 25-29)

"God separates those Roman pontiff, who takes such a function not just humans, but the true God ... Deleted ... not human but rather divine authority. "(Dekretal Gregory IX., Book 1, Chapter 7.3)

"We advocate on this earth instead of God Almighty." (Big encyclical letters of Pope Leo XII, June 1894)

"And God himself is obliged to obey the courts and their priests to forgive or not to forgive, depending on whether or not the priest gives absolution to penitents ..." (Liguori, duties and dignity of the priest, p. 27)

"The Pope has such great dignity and so exalted that it is not just a man but as God, God's representative ... It is also a divine monarch and supreme emperor, king of kings ... If it were possible, and the angels might err in their faith, or might think contrary to belief, they might be judged and excommunicated by the Pope. "(Excerpts from Ferrari Church Dictionary, article on Pope)

In these examples we can see that the papacy is trying to take God's place and assumes the right to forgive sins, a right which is God alone. These are the highest kind of blasphemy.

7th She fought against the saints and prevailed against them (Revelation 13.7)

The historical fact remains that the papacy is the death of approximately 100 million people (the others show up to 150 million), who were killed are often very cruel way simply because they refused to accept the authority of the Roman Catholic Church.

"The Roman Church shed more innocent blood than any other institution that has ever existed in mankind." (WE Lecky, rise and influence of rationalism in Europe, Vol second p.32)

It is a historical fact that the great European war had a religious basis. Protestants were persecuted by Rome, which triggered many wars for the sole purpose - to destroy the Reformation. Pursuits were Valdens, Albigen, Huguenot ... - All those who refused to accept papal teachings, and kept the truth of God's word.

Satan has changed tactics - from persecution by Gentiles, who did not carry the intended fruit (despite the martyrdom of many faithful followers of Jesus Christ of continuously increasing), moved to infiltrate the church, which led to the adoption of pagan customs and superstitions, and many compromises. Christianity became the state religion and the pope, then the world's most powerful man, began to enforce obedience to power and persecute those who refused to recognize him head of the church.

8 She had power after 42 months (Revelation 13,5.7) and was given the power to act forty-two months ... She was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation.

About the same time period, we read in Daniel's seventh Revelation chapter and in the 12th chapter. In Daniel's prophecy, this period is described as "time, times and half the time", the same term also appears in Revelation 12.14. Revelation 12.6, this time labeled as "one thousand two hundred sixty days."

These various observations are still the same time period. Biblical month has 30 days, the biblical year of 360 days. In consequence, that 42 months = 3.5 time (years) = 1260 days.

At this point it is important to note that when the Bible prophecy speaks in symbols, then one prophetic day represents one of the real. (4.6 Ezechiel In God says: "... I save you for one day each year ...)

Using this principle, we can "forty two months" of Revelation 13 translated as 1260 years.

If you add to the 538 (the official beginning of the Roman Catholic Church and the State) 1260 years, we get for the 1798th If, therefore, represents a sea beast of the papacy, we find historical evidence that in 1798 was radically limited his power.

History is clear. 10th March 1798, exactly 1260 years after the papal power, Napoleon Bonaparte sent his General Louis Alexandre Berthier with his army to Rome. The pope was captured 18 months later and died in exile in France Valencia. The event ended papal authority with regard to enforcement of the papal power.

9 The fatal wound was healed (Revelation 13:3) One of his heads looked like a mortally wounded, but his deadly wound was healed.

The papal system earned 10th March 1798 a devastating blow and lost its power to enforce obedience of its power. "In 1798 General Berthier entered Rome, abolished the papal government, and established secular." (Encyclopedia Britannica) has filled the prophecy and it was this deadly blow suffered by the papacy, healed?

In 1929 the Italian Government as an independent Vatican state. Pope again became a political ruler. 9th March 1929 he said: "People all over the world are with us." The San Francisco Chronicle published an article on the signing of the Treaty on the front page of its edition. It was there among other comments: "Mussolini and Gaspari signed a historic agreement ... ... a long healing wound."

10 The whole country is in admiration for the beast (Revelation 13:3) The whole country has gone in wonder after the beast.

The late Pope John Paul II. was able to tilt the heart of the world, no doubt about that. The whole world went after him in amazement. His funeral was attended by more than two hundred world leaders. Not only political but also religious. The priority of the current Pope Benedict XVI is an ecumenical meeting. It seeks to unite Christian churches and other world religions. As a main condition for the complete unification is then placed on the adoption of the pope as the head, as a sovereign ruler of all churches. These negotiations are ongoing and ecumenical work is progressing rapidly forward.

As she followed the beast rising from the sea, "the whole country, it is clear that this is a worldwide operating power. And certainly this characteristic meets the Roman Catholic system. The Catholic Church is one of the few churches worldwide. According to evidence provided to us by the Bible itself, is a beast rising from the sea of religious-political power that was and the papal system!
