Theme: THE FIRST BEAST
Reading: Revelation. 13:1-10
13 Then I saw a beast rising from the sea that had seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet like a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death, but its mortal wound was curada.Toda the world wondered after the beast, 4 And they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying , Who is like unto the beast? Who can make war against him? 5 He was given a mouth uttering arrogance and blasphemies and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against Yehoshu ‘, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 Also it was allowed to make war with the saints and to overcome them: and power was given unto them authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. 8 And love it will all that dwell upon the earth, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must is that the sword is dead. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
Here the sea is a symbol of political power, as the heads were the apostate angels or bishops of the Congregation of the Messiah which were in Asia, Europe, Africa and Jerusalem or Aelia Capitolina, and Syria.
The church of Zeus – Christhos founded in Nicea held the power of the empire, hence the horns, being IESVS CHRISTVS FIILI DEI, the main phrase that identifies. (Acts 8:37)
He was given a mouth the beast (the Bible) to blaspheme Yerroshu ‘Celestial Divinity, the Saints did not accept the imposition of the Roman empire, and suffered to death; therefore approve the eternal God that these things were so.
