Daily Devotional, Year 3 – August 7

The False Prophet, Part 16: “The False Prophet’s Two Horns!”

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

.

.

.

.

.

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth;

and he had two horns like a lamb,

and he spake as a dragon.

Revelation 13:11 

.

 

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

There is a great divide in the world today. It is the political schism called, “the Right and the Left”. This is likewise known as liberals and conservatives.

.

And yet, the Lord knew all about this long ago.

.

As a matter of fact, these two political groups were spoken of in the Book of Revelation…“And I beheld another beast (the false Prophet) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” Revelation 13:11

But what does this beast have to do with politics?

.

And how do these two political groups connect with this False Prophet Beast of Revelation?

SATAN, THE TRUE “FALSE PROPHET”

.

Here is a symbolic representation of a great movement in the world, in which Satan will come, working through political and religious organizations to deceive the inhabitants of the world.

BEASTS SYMBOLIZE KINGS AND KINGDOMS

.

Now, just how do we know that this beast is more than a single individual?

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Merian%27s_Daniel_7_engraving.jpg

.

Because the Book of Daniel speaks of beasts as kingdoms, and not merely individual humans…“The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms,” Daniel 7:23

.

This Book of Daniel constantly referred to kingdoms as beasts.

MERCY AND JUSTICE

False Prophet

Now concerning this False Prophet Beast, it is written… “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” Revelation 13:11

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ghent_Altarpiece_D_-_Adoration_of_the_Lamb_2.jpg

Here is a beast which comes up out of the earth, with two horns like a lamb. Since horns in the Bible represent power sources, this beast has two power sources like a lamb. And Jesus, the great Lamb of God is what this False Prophet is imitating. And what are the two pillars of Jesus’ authority? Mercy and Truth? Righteousness and Peace?

.

Yes, Jesus is the very essence of Mercy and Righteousness!

THE THINGS OF THE EARTH

.

False Prophet

And this False Prophet Beast coming up out the earth, with two horns like the Lamb of God, reminds us of our current-day industrial/political machine which has become a great beast over the earth.

.

Yes, beginning in the United States, this beast has risen up via the earthly riches and earthy pleasures and lusts now seen spreading to the other nations of the earth!

.

.

.

.

.

False ProphetLEFT HORN, RIGHT HORN

.

And over the last century, two power sources, commonly referred to as the “Right” and the “Left”, have completed this symbolic beast of Revelation 13:11.

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:March_for_Women%27s_Lives_detail.jpg

.

In other words, these two political groups are a counterfeit of Jesus, in that one group claims to be the bastion of mercy and compassion, while the other claims to be the citadel of morality and  lawfulness.

.

And so, this False Prophet pretends to be Christlike with both “Mercy” and “Moral Correctness”, and yet is merely a counterfeit of the true mercy and righteousness which only belongs to Jesus.

.

False Prophet

Yes, Mankind can pretend to exude these qualities. But without the indwelling Spirit of Holiness, mankind’s very best attempt at being virtuous is merely “a form of godliness, denying the power thereof”! 2nd Timothy 3:5.

.

And so it is in today’s secular and religious world. These two horns of power are just a poor substitute for the pure and true “holiness, mercy and righteousness” of Jesus.

A KINGDOM DIVIDED CANNOT STAND

False Prophet

And as we look out upon the current political battlefield, these two political parties, oftenhttp://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Anger_during_a_protest_by_David_Shankbone.jpg referred to as “Conservatives” and “Liberals”, are revealing just how corrupt they really are!

.

Yes, as each group struggles for supremacy over one-another, their vitriolic hatred, deceptive dishonesty and blatant hypocrisy is now being made plain for all to see!

.

And the entire onlooking world is now witnessing the true, underlying wickedness, pride, hypocrisy, and even violent hatred between these two horns of power!

“GOOD NEWS FROM A FAR COUNTRY!” 

.

The Good News in all this is that God is calling all those who wish to escape these things, to http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpg“Come out of her, My people!” Revelation 18:4

.

And while we cannot come completely out of this present world system just yet, we can nevertheless come a good way out, if we choose to do so!

.

By unceasing prayer and contemplation of the Bible. By shunning all ungodly associations (as far as possible), and by allowing God to burn away our spiritual dross, we can be delivered from the ever-increasing corruption and deception and tyranny growing all around us!

“HIDE THYSELF…FOR A LITTLE MOMENT”

.

http://www.muskegonartmuseum.org/collections-gallery/gallery

.

This total 100% devotion to the Lord, is what God speaks of in Isaiah 26:20, 21…“Come, My people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the LORD cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.”

.

Yes, here is the solution for our apostate spiritual condition.

.

To hide ourselves in the secret pavilion of the Lord, is where we must be in this frightful apocalyptic hour!

THE VALLEY OF DECISION CONSTELLATION GROUP

.

“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…

.

“But the LORD will be the hope of his people, and the strength of the children of Israel.

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

.

Look eastward in the early summer through fall. Find the Cassiopeia Constellation. Cassiopeia is the Mount of Blessing.

.

Valley of Decision + O Destroying Mountain Constellation Group

.

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.)
