“The angel said to me, “Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.”
The mystery of the Great Whore is now explained…
The Beast that the woman sits on is the Beast from the abyss, the great Antichrist. The Beast carries her and supports her in her evil majesty and dominion. It is a temporary and borrowed dominion for she is an opportunist and parasite on the body of humankind. The Beast has seven heads and ten horns and the people who are not the elect of God, marvel at the power and seeming authority of the Beast, because he is the support of the Great final world church. This Beast was, and is not, for its days are numbered by the mighty God and He is working out His purposes in the final days of this world. It is not an eternal entity, but a passing evil, like all evil, that God is dealing with and will finally and forever put in the bottomless pit with all evil-doers.
The mind that has wisdom will understand these things…
The seven heads of the Beast are the seven mountains that the false church rests upon. It is the doctrine of devils that is contrary to the plain Word of God. They are also seven kings, five are fallen already, one exists at the present time, that is John’s time, and the other king and his evil kingdom is to come. It’s the last great world dominion that will over take all and institute the false religion and all will follow it who’s names are not written in the book of life from before the foundation of the world.
The last world dominion will last but a little while, for the Beast is itself another final king who is heading down to destruction like all who forget God and swallow the lies of the Antichrist, that is, false doctrines and evil practices.
The ten horns come at the end with the Beast and are kings waiting for their own kingdoms, which they will receive for only a very short time with the Beast. They are all in agreement with regards a world view, philosophy and religion. They give all the support and authority to the Beast and are merely his puppets on the world stage.
These thing are still yet hidden from us. We dare not make conjecture and wrongly interpret the Word of God, but we can see that God has all these events firmly in His eternal will from the very start. He will not abandon His people to the ravages of falsehood and will protect their minds and hearts with the power of His Holy Spirit.
The power of God is what keeps His people safe and secure, but we must walk uprightly and with due care and motivation. The victory of CHRIST in these circumstances is assured since he is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and has supreme dominion. He will vanquish all His foes and lead His people into the coming kingdom. We must be ready for it and prepared to fight the fight of faith and hope. All hell is under His control for He carries the keys of that place, at His belt.
“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.”
