The False Prophet, Part 30: “Misguided Mercy”

To read Part 1 of this series, click here… “JANUARY 26 (The False Prophet, Part 1: Lying Eyes!)”

 

.

.

.

.

.

The Book of Revelation speaks of a beast which is identified in Chapters 16, 19, and 20 as “The False Prophet”.

.

Now, contrary to popular opinion, this false Prophet is not merely one single individual, but represents Satan’s modus-operandi in these last centuries.

.

So this is the 2nd Beast of Revelation 13.

.

But just what or who is this 1st Beast?

.

Well, Satan originally came as the 1st Beast of Revelation 13 during the Dark Ages, persecuting and killing all those who clung to their Bibles in the face of the great apostate Church of Rome, which used the civil governments as their enforcers.

THE 2ND BEAST

.

But after this 1st beast received his deadly wound by a sword (the sword of the Spirit, the Word of God: Ephesians 6:13, 14), which was the printing press and all the Bibles it produced, Satan altered his modus-operandi, establishing a new and improved Beast. The new beast, the False Prophet, was actually Satan’s antichrist spirit working in and through the unsaved inhabitants of the world to deceive the world and cause them to worship the 1st beast.

THE TWO HORNS OF THE FALSE PROPHET

.

But before we get into some very tall weeds, let’s back out and focus on just one of this beast’s two horns. Yes, the Bible reveals that this second beast has two horns like a lamb. And of course, the Lamb of God, Jesus has two horns of power, Mercy and Truth. And our focus today is on the mercy horn of this False Prophet. And as we look out upon the political landscape we can readily see a political entity which claims to be the arbiters of mercy and compassion.

.

But unlike Jesus, who is the essence of true mercy and compassion, this false prophet beast is a terrible counterfeit of true mercy and compassion!

MISGUIDED MERCY

.

.

And furthermore, because this False Prophet Beast is so merciful to mothers who need abortions, the innocent little developing children are sucked out and cast into dumpsters, never to be seen again!

.

And while this False Prophet is so tender and merciful towards the certain politically protected sexual groups, it has no problem with trampling on the rights of Christians who own businesses and desire to maintain their biblical viewpoints. Yes, while standing up for the rights of one group, this False Prophet has no problem with destroying the rights and even the livelihood of another group.

TRAMPLING ON FREEDOM OF SPEECH

.

And while this same “merciful” False Prophet is so concerned about freedom of speech, he has no difficulty in stamping out the speech of all those who do not uphold this beast’s conception of political correctness. And he makes laws which enforce so-called, “hate speech”, which on the surface appears good and noble, but are quite often used to trample on the freedom of speech of Christians and others as well.

GENUINE MERCY AND COMPASSION ONLY IN JESUS

.

And so, these are just a few examples of how “mercy and compassion” have become a miserable counterfeit of true mercy and genuine compassion which only Jesus can share with His followers and disciples.

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY”

Proverbs 25:25

.

And the Good News is that any man, woman, or child who desires to have true mercy and compassion can renounce and turn away from this False Prophet world-system, and begin to follow Jesus as leads His sheep up the gently ascending Highway to Heaven!

7 HEADS, 10 HORNS, & 7 CROWNS OF THE DRAGON

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Rev. 12:3 

.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon Constellation up in the night sky does not. But God has faithfully created the wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically composed of ten stars. The main body of the wave has seven stars (#‘s, 1 thru 7). And the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars (#’s, 8, 9 & 10). So we have this 7 and 10 numbering. And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).
