Image of the Beast, Part 5: “Framing Mischief By A Law!”

.

.

.

.

.

“Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee,

which frameth mischief by a law?

They gather themselves together

against the soul of the righteous,

and condemn the innocent blood.

But the LORD is my defence;

and my God is the Rock of my refuge.

Psalm 94:20-22

During the dark Ages, Satan carried out a long siege against the people of God, implementing torture, imprisonment, banishment, scarcity, famine, and death, as means of “wearing out the saints”. (Daniel 7:25)

.

But now, in these last days, the Enemy of Souls has devised an entirely new strategy, which has proved far more effective than his previous plan during the Dark Ages.

2nd BEAST OF REVELATION 13

.

Yes, now that we are in the era of the 2nd Beast of Revelation 13, the time of the http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:TV_highquality.jpgFalse Prophet, it is Satan’s plan to totally conform the world, as well as God’s people into the image of the Beast (the world-system that is the very image of the Dragon, Satan).

.

(For an in-depth explanation of these two beasts, go to such articles as, Floodwaters of the False Prophet: “Atheism & Psychology”)

.

And what is the image of Satan? Simple! Satan’s character is all about pride, anger, selfishness, impatience, jesting, irreverence, lust, greed, violence, revenge, and other similar qualities.

.

This is what his image is all about! It’s his likeness!

IMAGES THAT SPEAK

.

And of course, this website has spoken much about television, radio, Internet, and the various high-tech devices which are extremely effective in conforming the world into his image.

“HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS, BUT DENYING THE POWER THEREOF: FROM SUCH TURN AWAY!”

2nd Timothy 3:5

.

Truly, “the god of this world” is doing very well for himself these days, in his mission to conform the world into his image.

.

Oh yes, there is a “form of godliness” in this world.

.

But such false morality is merely an integral part of Satan’s character.

.

After all, Satan is no dummy (as many erroneously suppose)!

.

No, Satan fully understands that he must cloak his lies with much truth, to have any degree of success in deceiving the world’s inhabitants.

.

.

.

.

.

“THAT NO MAN MIGHT BUY OR SELL, SAVE HE THAT HAD THE MARK”

Revelation 13:17

.

And so, one might imagine that Satan is satisfied with his 95% success rate in conforming the world into his antichrist image.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Christianandapollyon.jpg

.

NONSENSE!

.

Satan will only be happy with a 100% success rate!

.

Unfortunately for him, there is a small remnant who have successfully resisted his brainwashing efforts up to this point in time.

.

Yes, a certain percent of Christians have managed to remain aloof from Satan’s indoctrination institutions, such as public schooling, television, secular radio and worldly-minded Internet.

“THE THRONE OF INIQUITY…WHICH FRAMES MISCHIEF BY A LAW”

Psalm 94:20

.https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:France_in_XXI_Century._School.jpg

But let’s not imagine for a moment that Satan is going to leave open any door of opportunity for those Christians to escape out of his hand!

.

There are already laws in the works of government, which if enacted will close these doors of opportunity to side-step Satan’s “iron furnace” of totalitarian mind-control!

.

For instance, well-meaning  elected officials are now attempting to enact laws which will eventually over-regulate home-schooling to the point that parents will no longer be able to home-school their children. (Home-schooling is already nearly impossible in much of Europe).

“THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST”

.

Yes, Satan is busily restricting Christian’s freedoms on many fronts, in the various societies of the world in effort to form the image of the beast as spoken of in Revelation 13…“And (the False Prophet) deceives them that dwell on the earth…that they should make an image to the beast…that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:14, 15

.

Here is a prophecy which is already finding its fulfillment in today’s world. It is Satan’s effort to conform the world into the man-contrived false gospel, earthy philosophies and selfish behaviors of this world.

.

This is what the image of the beast is really all about!

“…IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD, I DIE DAILY”

1st Corinthians 15:31

.

Oh no, nobody is being literally killed as of yet.

.

But in a very real sense, only those Christians who are willing to die-to-self will escape out of the hand of “the god of this world”!

.

Only those who are willing to follow the Lamb to the very top of heavenly Sion will stand victorious over the beast, his mark, his name, the number of his name, and his image.

A BLESSING IN DISGUISE!

.

And in a sense this is very Good News!

After all, God’s Elect have been procrastinating for much too long from completing our commission to become fully crucified with Christ.

.

To a certain degree we’ve been drinking large draughts of the waters of this world’s cisterns for much too long!

.

And for this reason, God is finally allowing Satan to make life nearly impossible for any Christian who refuses to bow down and worship the great golden image of the King of Babylon, in hopes that we might finally become crucified with Christ in Satan’s fiery furnace now being heated up seven times hotter.

“THE DAY OF THE LORD IS NEAR IN VALLEY OF DECISION”

Joel 3:14

.

And so, the Valley of Decision comes around to each Christian, asking him or her the question…“Am I willing to make that entire surrender?

.

“Am I willing to completely die to self, that I may escape out of the hand of the god of this world?

.

“Will I forsake all for Christ’s sake?”

.

.

.

.

Well, those who do make this total sacrifice will be able to rejoice in the following passage from Revelation…

.

And I saw…them that had gotten the victory over the beast,

and over his image, and over his mark,

and over the number of his name,

stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. 

And they sing…’Great and marvellous are Thy works,

Lord God Almighty;

just and true are Thy ways, Thou King of saints.

Who shall not fear Thee, O Lord, and glorify Thy name?

for Thou only art holy:

for all nations shall come and worship before Thee;

for Thy judgments are made manifest.'”

Revelation 15:2-4

FLOOD-WATERS OF SATAN CONSTELLATION

www.theheavensdeclare.net.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…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…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:1, 3, 15

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).
