The Book of Revelation Reveals the Beast Religion
There are many teachers within the modern Church system that look at the book of Revelation through their own denominational lens. Scholars and Bible students who are a by-product of the seminaries of men claim that they have found the mystery that is hidden within the book of Revelation revealing the Antichrist, but what they don’t know is that he is staring them right in the face.
Many religious people are still dumbfounded and don’t really know for sure what all the metaphors and symbolism within the book really mean. I myself have spent many years being swayed back and forth with popular opinions concerning the warnings and prophecies that are contained within the book. My problem was that I had been indoctrinated for most of my life; therefore, unless I had help from the Holy Spirit, I would have much difficulty un-indoctrinating myself from everything that I had learned within the churches of men no further in discovering the truth. I had to throw away the denominational lenses that I kept close even though I had left the shackles of organized religion. Once I threw the lenses away, the most misunderstood symbols in Revelation became revelation. I realized that I was completely blind to seeing the truth and the identity of the Beast was right in front of me, not recognizing him at all. In fact, I was indoctrinated to worship him most of my life.
If you are familiar with the book of Revelation and the endless books and articles on the subject, it can be said that most of it is mere presumption. Every Church denomination and sect hold to their own man-made interpretations. What this article will attempt reveal is that the whole system of Church (Churchianity) worships the Antichrist, or the Beast religion, and most people don’t even realize it. The evidence is right in Scripture, but it will take the reader to throw out any bias and affiliations that they have and have an open mind to what will be revealed in this theme. Hopefully, Scripture will be its own interpreter identifying the Beast system, the Antichrist spirit and its followers.
The Revelation OF Jesus Christ
The book of Revelation, depending on what Bible version you have has incorrectly named the book, “The Revelation of St. John the Divine” (KJV) by its translators. This is the first deception that would infiltrate the English translations of the Bible revealing that those working on the text did not have the spiritual understanding of the message. It should be obvious from reading the first verse in the book that is not the Revelation of St. John the Divine.
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST, which God gave Him to show to His bond-servants, the things which must soon take place – Revelation 1:1
We can see the clear evidence in the first verse that message of Revelation is the Revelation of Jesus Christ (Yahshua Messiah). You may think that this distinction is of no significance, but you will soon see that it is clearly isn't. If someone starts reading this book on a false presumption, the message will be completely confusing and the reader will get lost in finding the true meaning. I would hope that you would agree that this is the case for the majority of religious people because most believe the book of Revelation is about the mystery around the revealing of the Beast/ Antichrist, but this is not the main intention of the book at all.
You may have walked into the many “Christian” bookstores and browsed through the many books written by the myriad of famous authors and teachers with their latest convincing take, or interpretation of the symbols in Revelation, but what they all have in common is that their main focus is on the Beast/ Antichrist.
The deception gets even more confusing when reading the different English re-translations of Revelation 1:1 in the modern Bibles.
The revelation FROM Jesus Christ, which GOD GAVE HIM (NIV)
This is a revelation FROM Jesus Christ, which GOD GAVE HIM (NLT)
Right here we can see the confusions the come from title of Revelation (KJV) and the first verse of Revelation in some of the modern Bibles leaves the reader starting off on a wrong footing leading many to a conclusion based on a faulty premise.
The revelation of Jesus Christ, WHICH GOD GAVE HIM to show to his servants – Revelation 1:1 (KJV)
The re-translations of the two modern Bible verse examples above become quite apparent with contradiction when reading the King James Version. The twisted versions convey that the revelation is FROM Jesus Christ (Yahshua Messiah) and then says God (Yahweh) gave it to him.
Many within the religious counterfeit Church system believe that there is no distinction between Jesus Christ (Yahshua Messiah) and the Father so they see no discrepancy because they believe that Jesus Christ is "God the Son," instead of Yahshua Messiah the Son of Yahweh.
The very first verse in the KJV above and ESV below makes the clear distinctions.
THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST, WHICH GOD GAVE HIM to show to his servants the things that must soon take place. – Revelation 1:1 (ESV)
When the word “OF” in some of the English re-translations is changed to “FROM.” This takes away the clear distinction of God’s Word that says, “WHICH GOD (the Father) GAVE HIM (the Son).” The word “FROM” takes the distinctions away that both Jesus Christ (Yahshua Messiah) and the Father have. If Jesus Christ is God, there would be no need to give a revelation to Himself because HE would be "God the Son."
With this presumption, the reader is robbed of the revelation OF Jesus Christ (Yahshua Messiah) that the Father (Yahweh) GAVE to him to show TO US.
Warning and Blessing
I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book, and if anyone TAKES AWAY FROM THE WORDS OF THE BOOK OF THIS PROPHECY, God will take away his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book. – Revelation 22:18-19
I would think that this is no small matter when man-made doctrine takes away the distinctions between the God the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ (Yahshua Messiah). Scripture has made it abundantly clear that there is a distinction. When a distinction is improperly made, the book of Revelation becomes no longer about the revelation OF Jesus Christ (Yahshua Messiah), but the revelation of the image of antichrist that blinds the religious masses to the true purpose of the book.
The purpose of the book of Revelation is conveying the revelation OF Jesus Christ (Yahshua Messiah) GIVEN to Him from God the Father so He can offer it to ALL believers. The whole point of the book is about the promise Jesus Christ (Yahshua Messiah) made to his followers before his death.
Revelation reveals a blessing upon those who keep the words of the book and reveals the mystery that would shortly come to pass upon the finished work of Yahshua.
The revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show to his servants THE THINGS THAT MUST SOON TAKE PLACE. – Revelation 1:1
Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and WHO KEEP WHAT IS WRITTEN IN IT, FOR THE TIME IS NEAR. – Revelation 1:3
Doers of the Word
Those in the modern Church system may read aloud and hear the words of the prophecy, but that is where it ends. The word “keep” means doing, or performing the things that are written, but how can you do these things when you have no idea what the words mean?
BUT BE DOERS OF THE WORD, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. – James 1:22
For it is not the hearers of the law who are righteous before God, but THE DOERS OF THE LAW WHO WILL BE JUSTIFIED. – Romans 2:13
Jesus answered him, “IF ANYONE LOVES ME, HE WILL KEEP MY WORD, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and MAKE OUR HOME WITH HIM. – John 14:23
Many spend hours and hours reading the book of Revelation trying to figure out what it means. The problem becomes apparent when you cannot “keep” what is written in it because you have no clue what the words mean. With the inability to decipher the shrouded symbolism, then the specific revelation given by Yahweh to Yahshua to give to us will not be known.
Christ IN Us
The book of Revelation is about revealing the mystery of Yahshua Messiah IN US by obedience through faith. Once we have the Holy Spirit dwelling within us, there is no danger of being deceived into worshiping the false Christ, the antichrist spirit, or the Beast religion.
To them God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of THIS MYSTERY, WHICH IS CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory. – Colossians 1:27
My little children, for whom I am again in the anguish of childbirth until CHRIST IS FORMED IN YOU! – Galatians 4:19
For I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it, but I received it through A REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST. – Revelation 4:1
Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to THE REVELATION OF THE MYSTERY THAT WAS KEPT SECRET FOR LONG AGES – Revelation 16:25
The book of Revelation, which is the revelation OF Yahshua Messiah depicts the fulfillment of the mystery, which is Yahshua IN YOU.
But that in the days of the trumpet call to be sounded by the seventh angel, THE MYSTERY OF GOD WOULD BE FULFILLED, just as he announced to his servants the prophets. – Revelation 10:7
The mystery of Yahweh is the hope in you, the hope of glory, Yahshua in you, the Good News! The same admonishment to “keep” the revelation was given to those within the seven localities in Revelation 2, and it applies the same to all followers of Yahshua today, which is to listen to what the Spirit is saying.
Remember therefore from where you have fallen; REPENT, AND DO THE WORKS YOU DID AT FIRST. – Revelation 2:5
THEREFORE REPENT. If not, I will come to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth. – Revelation 2:16
But I have this against you, that you tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is TEACHING AND SEDUCING MY SERVANTS to practice sexual immorality and to eat food sacrificed to idols. – Revelation 2:20
The seduction in the modern counterfeit church system is the teaching that a lifestyle of sin is okay. My previous article here exposes their false “gospel.” Yahshua is calling all those who profess "Christianity" to repent and be doers of the Word, or face judgement.
I gave her time to repent, but SHE REFUSES TO REPENT of her sexual immorality. Behold, I will throw her onto a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her I WILL THROW INTO GREAT TRIBULATION, UNLESS THEY REPENT OF HER WORKS – Revelation 2:21-22
Jesus Christ promises to judge those according to their works.
And I will strike her children dead. And all the churches will know that I am he who searches mind and heart, and I will give to each of you ACCORDING TO YOUR WORKS. – Revelation 2:23
The message is confirmed over and over to repent, or else. Return to your first works and first love, Yahshua Messiah and cease from sin, or you will be judged. The modern Church falsely teaches that "Jesus Christ" died for all sinners, meaning that you will never be judged for your sins. This is the message of the Beast that contradicts the Revelation OF Yahshua Messiah. They have accepted the spirit of the antichrist because they believe that they do not have to give up their sinful lifestyle believing no one has the ability to stop sinning. The lie that leads to death is teaching the blood of Yahshua was shed so that you can continue in your sinful lifestyle, meaning His blood blindfolds the Father from seeing them.
They create for themselves another "Jesus" who is indistinct from the Father ignoring the warning that He is coming to judge those according to their works. Their false Christ says that he does not judge by works at all.
The Worship of the Antichrist
The "image" of the antichrist is a man who is worshiped as God and claims to be Yahweh. The God/ man is fashioned after the pagan Roman gods. Their pagan Christ’s blood looks the other way and blinds the Father from seeing their sins making them feel comfortable in their man-made traditions.
They put their “Lamb” on the throne when the book of Revelation clearly depicts the Lamb of Yahweh in the midst of the twenty-four elders who takes the scroll from the ONE sitting on the throne.
At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with ONE SEATED ON THE THRONE. And he who sat there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian, and around the throne was a rainbow that had the appearance of an emerald. AROUND THE THRONE were twenty-four thrones, and seated on the thrones were twenty-four elders, clothed in white garments, with golden crowns on their heads. Revelation 4:2-4
“Around the throne” means within its midst, or presence of.
AND AROUND THE THRONE, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures, full of eyes in front and behind – Revelation 4:6
And BETWEEN the throne and the four living creatures and AMONG the elders I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. And HE WENT AND TOOK THE SCROLL FROM THE RIGHT HAND OF HIM WHO WAS SEATED ON THE THRONE. - Revelation 5:6
The modern church system puts their false messiah upon the throne of the Father as they make no distinction between "Jesus Christ" and God. It is clear that the Lamb of God is around the throne, just like the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures. The Lamb takes the scroll from the Father who is seated on the throne.
Right here, we can see that the teaching of the Beast religion has added to the words from the prophecy of the book of Revelation by taking the distinction away from the Lamb and He (Yahweh, the Father), the ONE who is seated on the throne. The reason the dire warnings are written in the text of Revelation because Yahweh knew that corrupt men would change the nature of Yahshua Messiah Christ and replace him with a counterfeit one (man/God) called "Jesus Christ.". By altering the English re-translations of Scripture they have succeeded in deceiving the masses with their preconceived notions to accept the mark of the beast.
Yahshua warned about the false Christ.
For FALSE CHRISTS and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. – Matthew 24:24
I have come in my father’s name, and you do not receive me. IF ANOTHER COMES IN HIS OWN NAME, YOU WILL RECEIVE HIM. – John 5:43
The Apostles warned of a false Christ too.
But I am afraid that as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts will be led astray from a sincere and pure devotion to Christ. For if someone comes and PROCLAIMS ANOTHER JESUS than the one we proclaimed, or if you receive a different spirit from the one you received, or if you accept A DIFFERENT GOSPEL from the one you accepted, you put up with it readily enough. – 2 Corinthians 11:3-4
The counterfeit “Jesus” who is “God the Son” is the twisted perverted version of the true Yahshua Messiah who is all man (the Son of God). The spirit of the antichrist twists and perverts Yahshua's sacrifice by saying that yahweh does not punish the “Christian’s” sinful behaviors because God’s grace is a licence to sin. They believe that since "Jesus" is God, they could never attain the same status (a Son of God) by following His example being perfected in the Spirit. The fail to understand that Yahshua Messiah was the ONLY begotten Son until His death and resurrection, but when the Spirit came ALL would have the opportunity to become Sons begotten (born again) of the Father too. This is the Revelation OF Yahshua Messiah, CHRIST IN US!
Worship of another "Jesus" who is "God" is the religion the Roman Catholic Church. Most of "Churchianity" worship the same "God" as they do.This is the Beast religion that was warned of by Yahshua and the Apostles.
- We Can be Just like Jesus Christ, A Son of God
This article will reveal a false teaching that is taught in the Church system that has its origins in the Catholic Catechism.
- The License to Sin Doctrine
There is a deception that is in the Church system that believes Jesus Christ’s blood has covered all the believers sins from the past, present and the future.
- The Preconceived Notions Concerning the Gospel of John, Chapter 1
Many will read John 1:1 with a preconceived notion that "the Word" is a separate person as God. This does not hold true when the first chapter is examined more carefully and put into context.
