A name which has little familiarity in today’s world is that of Roger Williams. (No, not that pop pianist recording artist.)

.

But perhaps only in Rhode Island is the name, Roger Williams a familiar name, since he was the founder of that colony, later becoming the state.

.

But Roger Williams discovered that the New World of America was fast becoming a place of religious oppression and intolerance by the rulers of the Puritan denomination.

.

And this was an unthinkable situation, since escaping religious persecution was a major reason why the European pilgrims came here in the first place!

FLEEING FOR HIS LIFE

.

But Roger William’s plea for religious freedom was not well received by those in power. And https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Roger_Williams_and_Narragansetts.jpgsoon, this righteous and principled man of God had to escape for his life from the Puritan leadership for advocating these, “diverse and new and dangerous opinions” (info source: Wikipedia).

.

Thus, Williams had to suffer for nearly three months while escaping from authorities through the harsh winter in Massachusetts. At times, a hollow tree became his nightly shelter from the frigid, snow-covered wilderness.

.

Finally, Williams was mercifully taken in by the Narragansett native Americans, no doubt enjoying his time with them until the spring thaw.

.

Well, the rest is history!

.

Williams eventually rose up to become a well-known and highly respected defender of religious freedom, as well as a friend, defender, and evangelist to many Native Americans.

ATHEISM: 6TH HEAD OF THE ANTICHRIST BEAST

.

Now in yesterday’s devotional (click here to read) it was discussed how atheism took control of the Reformation nations of Europe, and ultimately put to death that great Christian Reformation movement in those states.

.

And this website has many devotionals which focus on how atheism and its related ideologies are actually the 6th head of the 7-head Antichrist Beast of Revelation, Chapters 13 & 17.

APOSTATE PROTESTANTISM: THE 7TH HEAD

.

Nevertheless, Roger Williams encountered another Beast power, a religious one in the form of the apostate “Christian” leadership of that day.

.

And so, even though Satan, through the centuries, persecuted true Christians via the tyrannical church-system of Europe (which was the 5th head of the Antichrist Beast), Williams was now encountering the progenitor of the 7th head of the Antichrist Beast: apostate Protestantism.

.

Oh yes, God worked through Williams to squelch this new beast-power, but only for a time! Because the False Prophet Beast power was to eventually rise up once again, however at a later time.

Well, if the Noble Berean will scroll down to almost the page bottom, he or she can listen to the audio chapter on Roger Williams, and his valiant stand for religious freedom of conscience in the new world of America. This is Chapter 16 from Ellen White’s book, “The Great Controversy”.

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).
