Urgent Message: End Time Prophecy Pt.2

Updated on August 30, 2017

The Mark of the Beast

Now the Bible warns us about the mark of the beast, & that whosoever receives the mark of the beast will be casted into the lake of fire and tortured with fire and burning sulfur in the presence of Jesus and you will be tortured day & night, the smoke of your torture will go up forever & ever and you will never be able to rest.

In other words, whoever receives the mark will go to hell and experience the second death being tortured physically, mentally and spiritually forever. Im sure no one would ever want to experience that, so in order to avoid getting the mark of the beast, we have to investigate who the beast is that Revelation 13 is talking about. This chapter speaks of two different beasts, so which beast is it? Let’s see. . . .

2nd Beast Identified

Revelation 13:11 “Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon.

There are four key points to this verse that identifies the second beast. John says “Then I saw a second beast. . .” this indicates that this beast came after the first beast, so the second beast must rise up around the time the first beast received its deadly wound. Then he said “coming out of the earth” now the first beast rose up from the sea, but this beast rose up out of the earth. The ‘sea’ represents a heavily populated region with many people and tongues but the ‘earth’ represents a sparsely populated region. Therefore this beast (kingdom/nation) would emerge from a region of few inhabitants. Then John says “It had two horns like a lamb” in bible prophecy a horn signifies power, therefore this nation had two separate powers distinct from each other. These two horns was like a lamb & a lamb is a symbol of Christ, therefore we can conclude that this nation was founded on pure & noble Christian principals. Then John said “but it spoke like a dragon” meaning it had the voice like a dragon, and a dragon is a symbol of Satan. The lamblike appearance with the voice like a dragon reveals a striking contrast between the peaceful professions and forceful practices of this nation.

Dear reader there is only one nation that perfectly fits this prophecy and that nation is the United States of America. Now before you start making doubts let me assure you with evidence that the U.S is in fact the second beast.


“Then I saw a second beast,

. The USA is the only nation that rose into existence around the time of the Papacy’s loss of power in 1798.

-Declaration of Independence 1776

-American Revolution 1775-1783

-Establishment of Federal Government 1787

“coming out of the earth.”

  • The USA didn’t emerge in the Old World, which was crowded full of peoples and multitudes, but emerged in the New World where there was few inhabitants (the Native Americans).

“It had two horns like a lamb,”

  • The USA has a unique form of government where church and state are separate, which is guaranteed by the Constitution. Therefore the USA is indeed a republic, a kingdom without a king & protestant, a church without a Pope, with both powers completely separate. Also the lamblike qualities of The USA has made it a refuge for the persecuted & oppressed people of many nations (home of the free) & it’s constitution is based on Christian principals.



    “but it spoke like a dragon.”

    • The fundamental law of the USA written in its constitution guarantees individual liberty of conscience, but the USA have already begun & will soon fully abandon every principal of its constitution.

    • According to the U.S Constitution Amendment I. states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; . . . . no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

    • According to aclu.org The House Speaker-elect, Newt Gingrich, this week announced his intention to push immediately for adoption of his proposal to amend the U.S. Constitution "relating to voluntary school prayer." . . . . if adopted the amendment would allow public officials, including teachers, to dictate how, when and where school children and others should pray, thus undermining one of the core values of the First Amendment: the complete freedom of religious conscience through the no establishment of religion. The U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly said that officially organized prayer is coercive in a school environment, even when designated as "voluntary." A constitutional amendment requires the approval of two-thirds majorities in both houses of Congress and then of the legislatures of three-quarters of the states. Gingrich has announced his plans to hold public hearings around the country this winter and spring -- presumably in locations thought to be most receptive to the idea. He hopes to have a vote on the issue by July 1.

      As you see here, congress are already attempting to abandon constitutional principles and there is more to come. Just observing what is occurring in the news and in the recent past will confirm this biblical description.

      And I strongly support the faith-based initiative that we're proposing, because I don't believe it violates the line between the separation of church and state, and I believe it's going to make America a better place.” – George W. Bush


Church & State has begun to unite, the USA which is called the land of the free, will soon be the center for the change and reshaping of religious freedom & liberties. Just pay attention to what’s happening in the news and media, the USA is preparing for a police state. Foreign troops and equipment are being brought into the U.S preparing and training for this very cause. There are over 600 empty prison camps being prepared around the U.S.

For what though?

Why are there hundreds of Wal Mart stores being shut down and transformed into concentration camps?

What is the government preparing for?

This brings me the other part of the bolded text of Revelation 13:11-18.


Rev. 13:12-18 “It exercised all the authority of the first beast. And he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived all the people who belong to this world. It ordered the people to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life. It was then permitted to give life to this statue so that it could speak. Then the statue of the beast commanded that anyone refusing to worship it must die. It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”

There are four key points to the underlined verses above.


It exercised all the authority of the first beast.

  • Remember the first beast is the Roman Catholic Church and it had the authority to fight against God’s holy people and defeat them, this includes anyone who refuses to receive the mark of the beast and follow the world, those who choose to obey God & not the world. A time is soon coming when the U.S will exercise its full authority to force people into conforming to the ways of this world, & anyone who goes against it will die.

And he required all the earth and its people to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed.And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived all the people who belong to this world. It ordered the people to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life. It was then permitted to give life to this statue so that it could speak. Then the statue of the beast commanded that anyone refusing to worship it must die.

  • The US will force the whole earth to worship the papacy in some form, if anyone refuse to do so they will be put to death. Also great signs and wonders will be performed but it will be the work of Satan, and many people will be deceived and follow the anti-Christ. So I encourage you stay alert & follow Jesus, pray that you will not be deceived.

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”

A time will come where this nation will force the mark of the beast, religion will be forced just like the first beast (Roman Catholic Church) forced their law during those dark years of 538AD-1798. Don’t get this confused, the mark of the beast is not a literal physical mark, it’s a spiritual mark that you belong to this world and not God. You can receive this mark in many different ways, mainly following the traditions of man, those who obey man rather than obey God. Those who belong to God will not obey man or receive the mark of the beast and they will be put to death.

A time will come very soon, when force will be applied & people are going to have to make a decision, either to obey God or obey man & receive the mark of the beast. This mark will be either in their foreheads or in their hand, meaning that if you believe in the deception of man’s law you will receive the mark in your forehead and if you do it for any other reason such as convenience, comfort or simply fearing being put to death you will receive the mark in your hand. Even today people are receiving the mark of the beast weather they are conscious of it or not, they are following the commandments of men and not obeying God. A prime example is people obeying the man made Sabbath (Sunday) and disregarding the true Sabbath which is Saturday. God said in Exodus 20:8-10 "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.Six days you shall labor and do all your work,but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of rest dedicated to the LORD your God. On that day no one in your household may do any work. This includes you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, your livestock, and any foreigners living among you.

God created Saturday (the Sabbath) to be a day of rest as we celebrate his Godhood and his creation, but today the world observes Saturday as a party day & day to do all sorts of events & sin is most rampant on Saturday. Majority of the world keeps Sunday and observes Sunday as the Sabbath which is a false day of rest. Today there is a Sunday movement in progress all over the world. The Pope wants to strengthen Sunday as the day of rest, and make it into a family day. The European Sunday Alliance wants to have Sunday as a day of rest, just as the pope. They are working together in order to strengthen Sunday as the day of rest in Europe... and also in the whole world. The Ten Commandments has been changed by the Roman Catholic Church and they made Sunday the Sabbath.

Matthew 15:9 “But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”

"Of course the change (from Sabbath to Sunday) was her act ..... and the act is a MARK of her ecclesiastical power and authority in religious matters." (signed by H.F.Thomas, Chancellor for Cardinal Gibbons, in a letter dated Nov. 11, 1895)

"Sunday is our MARK of authority ... the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact." (Catholic record of London, Ontario, Sept. 1, 1923)

As you see the mark of the beast is already being applied, that’s why it’s very important for people to not be neutral and to not go along blindly with tradition, because even if you don’t buy into the deception of the government, news & media, having a neutral or nonchalant attitude towards it all will ultimately result in you getting the mark in your hand. That’s why it’s critical that we study the bible and history to see for ourselves. After all you owe it to yourself to discover the truth, don’t just take someone’s word on it, people will lead you straight to the lake of fire. It’s important that you do your own research & study to show yourself approve. God’s word tells us in 1 John 4:1 “Dear friends, do not believe everyone who claims to speak by the Spirit. You must test them to see if the spirit they have comes from God. For there are many false prophets in the world.” So you ought to test the spirits by the Spirit, the Holy Spirit that is.

“which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”

Now the official title of the Pope is “Vicarius Filii Dei” when translated into English it reads “Representative of the Son of God” and this is inscribed on the triple teared crown he wears.

IN ROMAN NUMERALS THIS IS WHAT THESE WORDS REPRESENT

When you do the math & as the photo shows you, you will see that the number of his name is 666 just as the bible says.

Dear reader, we are living in a time like no other. The world is being turned upside down and we need to get ready! If you are not a believer in Christ and you realize that we are living in the last days of time and are wondering what you need to do to be saved, here is what God’s Word say you should do:

Romans 10:9-10 “If you declare with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved

Mark 16:16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”

Acts 3:19 “Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away.”

Ephesians 2:8 “For it is by grace you are saved through faith.And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.”

Now that you know the truth it is up to you to accept it or not, God speaks to us in many different ways but it is up to us to listen to his voice. Hebrews 3:15 As it is says: "Today if you should hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.Don't be stubborn like those who rebelled."

If you have faith & believe God’s Word and all that it says, then you will be saved, but to even have the faith to believe is a gift from God. So that means God chooses his people, if you are God’s chosen son/daughter he will put it in your heart to believe & have faith, but if you are not God’s chosen then you will not be able to believe in Him or have faith that the Gospel is true. You will trust your senses and believe in only what makes sense to you, you will steady make excuses about how God can’t be real or how this or that doesn’t make sense or what’s possible & what’s not. You will not accept the message of truth it will be too overwhelming for you to believe and you won’t allow yourself to have faith. The bible defines faith as Hebrews 11:1 “Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” We have to understand that we are only human, we operate & reason on a human level some things are too much for our human minds to comprehend, just because we are not able to understand some things doesn’t mean they aren’t true. We can’t see, hear, or taste oxygen but that doesn’t mean it don’t exist. Some things requires faith & faith alone, we are only human and trying to reason on level with God is humanly impossible & is on the borderline of blasphemy. Most of the things God does, our human minds will not understand because we are only finite & God is infinite, that’s why faith is the only way we believe & trust in Him. Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase, faith doesn't makes sense a lot of times but it makes miracles. God will take 9,999 steps for you, you just have to trust him & take the first one.

Hebrews 11:3 “By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible”

Hebrews 11:6 “Now without faith it is impossible to please God, for whoever comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who diligently search for him”

Dear reader, don’t think you are too deep in sin to come to God or that you are too dirtied by sin to be cleaned, God’s Word says Mark 3:28 "I tell you the truth, all sin and blasphemy can be forgiven, but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin." There is only one sin that cannot be forgiven and that is blaspheme against the Holy Spirit the very sin that the Pope is practicing, so if you haven’t done that then Jesus welcomes you with open arms, don’t think he can’t fix you because he can, he can turn darkness into light & a sinner into a saint. Come to Jesus through faith & trust that he will take care of you no matter what you have done. Luke 19:10 “For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost." You might just be one of his lost sheep & he is asking you to let him into your heart.

Jeremiah 29:13 “If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”

If you want to believe & be saved from the second death then I encourage you to say this prayer with all your heart (be sure to be some place where you will not be disturbed or distracted, but fully focused on this conversation with God) :

Dear God, I come to you boldly & humbly, I realize that I am a sinner & that I have been spiritually asleep, I realize that the only way to heaven is through you Lord Jesus, I confess all my sins to you right now, all known & unknown sins, I realize that none of my sins are hidden from you no matter how much I try to hide them. Father God I know that I have did some things, said some things & thought some things that was unpleasing to you, I now ask that you forgive me of all my sins According to your Word in 1 John 1:9 Father God I ask that you reveal any unknown sins in my life & help me to have victory over each one of them. I ask that you help me to not let sin rule my life any longer but to always be led by your Holy Spirit. Come now Lord Jesus into my heart & take your rightful place in my life. Fill me now completely with your Holy Spirit & help me to have the faith that please you & help me to accept the truth, whole truth & nothing but the truth and not allow me to believe in any lie. I ask that you help me to not be deceived by anyone or anything, I ask that you allow my mind to be saturated with the mind of Christ and not dwell on negative thoughts. Father I confess with my mouth today that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is Lord & help me to believe without a shadow of a doubt all that is true. I ask that you Lord Jesus, transform my thinking & renew my mind so that I will have understanding & wisdom that comes from you, that I will be alert. Help me to follow you and you only & help me to let my life be a living sacrifice to you, help me to obey you & not my sinful desires help me to keep your commandments and not the commandments of men. I choose to not follow the world or the traditions of men. Father God please give me the courage & strength that I need to obey & please you. Help me to fulfill Your Will for my life in complete measure & not chase after my own desires. Help me to choose you over my pleasures, over my friends, over the world, over family, over material things, over money & another thing that seeks to take your rightful place in my life. Help me to put you first always and serve you with love & fear. Help me to let go of anything or anyone that I need to & help me to reach my full potential in you. I ask that you open any doors that need to be open in my life, weather natural or spiritual & close any doors that needs to be closed, in Jesus Christ name. Finally Father God I ask that you cover me & all my love ones with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ from the top of our heads to the soles of our feet, that you protect our mind, body, heart, spirit & soul and that you force out, drive out any evil or unclean spirits in any of us or our surroundings & cast them into the abyss never to return again. Help me to become more spiritually and mentally mature & have a greater level of intimacy with you father God. I ask all of these things according to John 14:13-14 in Jesus Christ Holy name, AMEN.

Mark 11:24 “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
