“The beast that thou sawest was, and is not;

and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit,

and go into perdition:

and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder,

whose names were not written in the book of life

from the foundation of the world,

when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is…”

Revelation 17:8

In yesterday’s devotional (click here), it was presented about the 1st Beast of Revelation Chapter 13, who persecuted Christians through the Dark Ages, but eventually received a deadly wound by a sword (that is, the “sword of the Spirit”, the Bible, now produced and distributed en masse by the newly invented printing press)

“DEADLY WOUND WAS HEALED”

.

And so, this first Beast went down into defeat, and became the beast that “was and is not”. (Revelation 17:8)

.

And yet, as Scripture reveals, its deadly wound was healed!

.

Yes, this religious system was to recover from its deadly wound.

.

And in the subsequent decades, it once again ascended out of the bottomless pit.

“BY PEACE SHALL (HE) DESTROY MANY!”

Daniel 8:25

.

But this time, it emerged as a very benign beast.

.

No longer did it carry on its reign of terror! No longer did it torture, banish, censure, imprison, and murder its foes!

.

No, just the opposite, it became a beast-dressed-in-white. A religious “good-guy”! And it now began to embrace the Bible (to a very limited extent), the very Book it attempted to obliterate out of existence through the Dark Ages!

.

.

.

.

.

NO LONGER A TYRANT!

.

And now, Satan began to come as the 2nd Beast of Revelation 13, The False Prophet (see RevFalse Prophetelation 19:20 & 20:10).

.

This Beast was actually comprised of the 6th & 7th heads of the 1st Beast. (To read about these two horns, go here…“The Two Horns of the 2nd Beast”

.

But the modus-operandi of this 2nd Beast was so vastly different from the 1st Beast, that it once again fooled the world’s inhabitants.

.

Thus, this Antichrist Beast was apparently, the Beast that “is not, and yet is”.

.

It went invisible, just like that tiny Leishmaniasis microbe spoken of in the first part of this “Beast that was and is not, yet is” devotional!

.

Undetectable by most!

.

.

OPULENCE & HEDONISM

.

This Antichrist Beast was now so “friendly” and seemingly “innocent”, that over a time, it was no longer considered a beast power.

.

And yet, it was still a beast power! Because, instead of persecuting the saints by violence and murder and torture and imprisonment, etc… this seemingly new beast, The False Prophet, began to destroy God’s people by immersing the former Reformation nations of Europe (and the U.S.) into the opulent materialism and the decadent pleasures of the earth (hence, this 2nd beast is spoken of as, “coming up out of the earth” Revelation 13:11).

MANY OTHER ARTICLES

.

Well, this devotional has run out of time.

.

But there are many articles devoted to this topic.

.

And the Reader is invited and encouraged to stay with this website to gain a greater understanding how Satan has come in the form of these two beasts (which are actually the same beast) throughout the past two thousand years to destroy the world as well as to destroy the saints of God.

“COME OUT OF HER, MY PEOPLE!”

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Tissot_The_Flight_of_the_Prisoners.jpg

But the Good News is that God is giving His people (and every person) time to repent of these deceptions which the invisible forces of evil are now implementing to wage their hellish war against Heaven and earth!

.

And God is calling His people out of Babylon, the world (and the world-loving churches).

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

“Multitudes, multitudes in the ‘Valley of Decision’…

.

for the day of the Lord is near in the ‘Valley of Decision’.”

Valley of Decision w/names

.

“The sun and the moon shall be darkened, and the stars shall withdraw their shining… 

.

“The LORD also shall roar out of Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem…

.

“And the heavens and the earth shall shake…

LOCATING THIS CONSTELLATION GROUP…

.

“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and He will teach us of His ways, and we will walk in His paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.” Micah 4:1, 2

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing. In the sketch, it is the farthest mountain to the left. In the sky, it is the northern-most of these three mountains when facing eastward. It resembles a pyramid.

.

Then find the second pyramid to its right (south).

.

Then go a little further south to the next third pyramid. The third snow-cap is the Destroying Mountain Constellation.

.

These three pyramids are the snow-capped portion of these three mountains in this sketch. (of course, you won’t see the snow-caps in the sky. They are just an embellishment in this sketch to present a concept-EDITOR).

Valley of Decision & O Destroying Mtn. Constellations

 

.

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP. They appear in mid-summer in the eastern skies in pre-dawn hours. These are made of Cassiopeia (mount on left), and various stars from the Andromeda Constellation (valley) Pegasus (Mount of Cursing (middle mount) & Destroying Mount (right)), and Pisces (Broad Way to Hell). The galaxy which appears to be climbing the Mountain of Blessing is the Andromeda Galaxy

.

The above Wikipedia star-chart shows this amazing constellation group as it appears from June to fall, just prior to the winter constellation group. Actually, these Valley of Decision Constellations appear in early summer in the pre-dawn hours. (Editor of this website has sketched in this constellation group onto this above Wikipedia star-chart.)
