From the beginning, when Satan first sinned at the Sacred Garden, symbolism has been used to describe things in Yahweh's enlightenment of Truth. Satan as a serpent and a dragon gives insight into his character.
Over many centuries mankind has taken note of characteristics and habits of the animal kingdom. Yahweh, through the Word, has applied the animal characteristics to people and governments. They are used the same way they were used to describe Dawn Lucifer Satan the Devil’s character. We know he’s a slime bag of a serpent, and a fallen angel that seeks to be powerful as a ruling dragon over his tin-god worshiping class of mortals.
Beasts as symbols of governments as described in the Word represent political kingdoms (governments) that exercise rulership.
This is pointed out at Daniel 7:6, 12, 23. Also Daniel 8:20-22. And at Revelation 16:10; Revelation 17:3, and verses 9-12. If you consider the cited Scriptures they reveal that even though those political wild beasts vary in symbolic makeup, they nonetheless have certain characteristics that share a common likeness with one another. What do you think the commonality might be? It’s that they are all shown as standing in opposition to Yahweh’s rule by His Son’s Messianic Kingdom over all of creation. They’re also all depicted as being in opposition to Yahweh’s Holy Ones; those being His people He’s established a Covenant with. First, was the Jewish nation and later, the Christian Congregation that divinely spawned forth from Christ’s teachings.
Some Biblical scholars try to persuade that the fulfillment of the visions of the beasts in the Book of Daniel do not extend beyond that period of time when Christ was on this planet at that time, the Roman Empire was the then dominant power structure that existed. But those same scholars failed to notice that the prophecies themselves are plain in that they extend well beyond that era in time. The beasts in their line of succession throughout history extend down to the arrival of the definite time for Yahweh’s Holy Ones to be raptured and to take possession of the Kingdom in the appointed time of the end. It is shortly thereafter that Yahweh’s forces destroy the beastly opposition. Read Daniel 7:21-27 and Daniel 8:19-25. Then compare with Revelation 17:13-14 and Revelation 19:19-20. Jesus Christ forewarned that opposition would continue into the time of the end, letting his disciples know they would be objects of hatred by all the nations. Read Matthew 24:3 and verses 9-14. Because the Word is supernatural in nature it does not allow for any nation, particularly the ones that are world powers, to be excluded from divine identification with the expressions and characteristics in their final forms of the symbolic wild beasts.
Daniel had a vision from Yahweh of the beasts coming up out of the sea. This vision came after Egypt and Assyria completed their respective periods of dominance in history. It was also near the close of the Babylonian Empire. At that period in history Yahweh gave Daniel the vision of those beasts coming up out of the vast sea. Read Daniel 7:1-3.
So that you don't get off track, keep this in mind: "Waters" are used in the Book of Revelation 17:15 to symbolize "peoples" crowds and nations and tongues (meaning nationalities) as the body of Mankind that encompasses and covers this inhabited Earth, just as waters cover the sea basins. If you'll read Isaiah 57:20 it will give further enlightenment on the use of "sea" and "water" in relationship to people.
In the vision the Apostle John received and recorded at the Book of Revelation, Chapter 13, it’s described as a seven-headed, ten-horned wild beast that comes up out of the sea. It is also described as being leopard-like, but with the feet of a bear, and the mouth of a lion. Through insight you know this is a composite formed of several symbols that appeared in Daniel’s vision of the four beasts. Dawn Lucifer Satan the Devil i.e. the Dragon, is identified at Revelation 12:9 as being who he really is and the one that gives authority and power to this beast that is detailed in Revelation 13:1-2. (He gives the power and authority via another beast he has made an alliance with and passed throne power over to. The original power he gave the first beast was taken when it was wounded but regains it through another beast.) The beasts seven heads that bears ten horns is symbolic of being complete. This is borne out by the extent of its power over its domain, for it exercises authority, not over one nation, and not even over one group of nations, but instead, over every tribe and people and tongue and nation. That describes total world dominance. Read Revelation 13:7-8, then compare with Revelation 16:13-14. The first of these beasts of Revelation 13 combines within itself the joint characteristics of the four beasts of Daniel’s vision. This corresponds that the first beast represents the combined forces of all political rule opposed to Yahweh that are presently in existence on this planet.
Now let’s move on to another part of John’s vision. He then saw a beast with two horns like those of a harmless lamb but it spoke not as a meek lamb, but that of a dragon. It exercised the full authority of the first wild beast we just examined and this new beast also has authority because it directs making an image of the globally ruling seven-headed beast, (meaning also that both beasts are existing at the same period of time) and putting all people under compulsion to accept the mark of the beast. Read Revelation 13:11-17.
Now does that mean we should resist the Mark if we are true followers of Christ and his Father? No. All will submit. It is a mark but it does not mean you are in alliance with the beast or the Anti-Christ that will come on the scene. If that were true, where does the money you live on come from? It’s printed by the Creator’s opposition on this planet. Can you live without money? No. You adapt to the environment without losing your faith in Christ and his Kingdom. You’re residing here as an alien. If you were in France you would use their money in place of U.S. currency if you’re from this country. You’re simply making use of what Yahweh permits to be in place on this planet at the time you reside here. Unless you were told to deny Christ, and you did so to survive, that would be sin that costs eternal life. But the mark does not take away your freedom to worship Yahweh; that comes later, when the Anti-Christ comes on the scene.
In the Book of Daniel Chapter 7, the two-horned ram represented a dual power; Medo-Persia. That power expired over time, but in the Apostle John’s day his vision was of things that were to take place in the future; our future. Read Revelation 1:1. Even though other dual powers have existed since John’s days on this planet, the ones applied to us are tied in with the now present end times.
The Beast from the Earth "Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; he had two horns like a lamb, but he sounded like a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast on his behalf and compels the earth and those who live on it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed (when it failed as the "League of Nations"). He also performs great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth before people. He deceives those who live on the earth because of the signs that he is permitted to perform on behalf of the beast, telling those who live on the earth to make an image of the beast who had the sword wound yet lived. He was permitted to give a spirit (armed power) to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could both speak and cause whoever would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. And he requires everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark: the beast's name or the number of his name." Revelation 13:11-17 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
This beast is the United States and Britain combined in strength. The first beast is the United Nations, because it represents all powers on this planet aligned against Yahweh and His Son Christ, to try and thwart the Kingdom. But the United Nations has no real military strength except that given of the two dual powers acting in unity; the USA being the strongest of the pair and bearing the MARK of the BEAST that the Anti-Christ springs forth from.
"And he requires everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on his right hand or on his forehead," The USA will eventually require that those accepting the Mark must also worship the image of the beast (the United Nations), that it keeps in power by its powerful weaponry. It is the USA that shares the Mark of the 666 with its benefactor and Father Satan. The first beast is the beast that is used to unify Mankind under one rulership, but its power comes from the DRAGON that is aligned with the second beast - the USA. Without the USA, the first beast (United Nations) cannot function. In the alliance of the dual power, Britain backs its counterpart; this forms the dual powers that work together within the second beast’s power structure. The dominating power is that of the USA. It is the power that forces the worship of the image of the beast. At its head is the Dragon that takes his place in world rulership as the Anti-Christ.
The Word states at Revelation 13:18 "Here is wisdom: The one who has understanding must calculate the number of the beast, because it is the number of a man. His number is 666." Note: "the number of the beast" not the number "of the image of the beast." The number of a man means it comes from Mankind’s understanding of numbers, and that the imperfection thrice over represents the Anti-Christ.
The scarlet colored beast at Revelation 17 has seven heads and ten horns, mounted by the symbolic woman whom depicts Babylon the Great’s Harlot - all false religion. This beast resembles the image of the first beast of Revelation 13. But it is distinct due to its scarlet color (scarlet from the lies it has given in false Christendom. Subverting the truth for the tickling of ears to hear what they want to believe - but is falsehoods), and because no crowns are seen upon its ten horns (because it passed power to the two horned beast); While looking upon this beast, John is told that five of the seven kings represented by the heads have already fallen, because one existed at that time, but the seventh was yet to come. The guarded secret is that the scarlet-colored beast itself is an eighth king that springs from the previous seven. The ten kings making up a power structure are represented by the ten horns; they exist and exercise authority in association with the scarlet beast (helping Satan keep the masses in control) for a short period of time. They war against Yahweh’s forces, but are all crushed in defeat. Read Revelation 17:3-5. And Revelation 17:9-14. This scarlet colored beast is Dawn Lucifer Satan the Devil. He is united with the seven headed beast, and has passed power to the two headed beast (the United States in alliance with Britain), and will soon spring forth as the Anti-Christ when his Harlot of false religion and deception takes her fall to the dust (because she rides the dragon who is presently invisible). At that time, Satan will try to force all people on this planet to worship him as he takes the helm over all powers on this planet. "but the seventh was yet to come." means Satan will have perfected his plan, upon coming, for world dominance against Yahweh and Christ.
To The Beast
You hide behind National Security and use it to commit criminal acts. The Betty Cash incident that involved one of your test saucers not only eventually cost Betty Cash her life, but the crew passed away from being radiated by a malfunctioning nuclear powered anti-gravity propulsion system that should not have been tested in a populated area. For that crime, and other things you perpetrate, Yahweh holds you accountable. You're all tagged (all who are in the know) for dark realms if you cross early. If you make it to Armageddon you'll go back to what you originally came forth from - DUST. Nothing more, nothing less, for eternity.
Betty Cash-Vickie Landrum Contact With UFOClose Encounters Of The Second KindBy UFO Area - Copyright 2000 - 2006 UFO Area
The case remains one of the most important in the history of ufology. It has never been resolved. Someone in the U.S. knows exactly what happened to Betty and Vickie and Colby but they have remained silent despite all the suffering - and ridicule - those three endured" wrote Bob Pratt in his forward to the book entitled "The Cash-Landrum UFO Incident: Three Texans are Injured During an Encounter with a UFO and Military Helicopters" by John F. Schuessler
Around 8.30 pm of December 29, 1980, Betty Cash, Vickie Landrum and her seven-year-old grandson, Colby Landrum were on their way home to Dayton. They just left a road side restaurant in New Caney and were driving on a quite so isolated road FM 1485, covered by piney trees and oak and dotted with swamps and lakes, near Huffman, Texas.
Suddenly they noticed a large light above the road in front of them. After rounding a curve on the road they witnessed a huge glowing object blocking the way and belching flames out of the bottom.
They were frightened by what they saw but two ladies stepped the car to see what was happening. They were only about 60 metres away from the observed object. Only Colby Landrum stayed inside and begged his grandmother all the time to get back in the car and hold him. After about three minutes Vickie Landrum did so and told Colby not to be afraid because "when that big man comes out of the burning cloud it will be Jesus". Betty Cash was still standing there outside the car and watching the UFO.
When the object began to move up and away she also got back to the car door. The door handle was so hot that it burned her fingers so she had to use her leather jacket to protect her hands. They switched off the heater and put on the air conditioner instead. Then the all together, sitting in the car, watched the UFO moving away.
At the same time, a large number of unmarked helicopters appeared overhead and escorted the UFO at a distance. The witnesses identified some twenty-four Chinook helicopters participating in the action. "They seemed to rush in from all directions...it seemed like they were trying to encircle the thing" Betty said. Then the UFO and the helicopters disappeared and Betty Cash with her friend and the little boy continued to drive home. Some minutes later they could see the UFO and the chasing helicopters again and followed it in their car for a period of time. The helicopters were clearly visible in the light reflecting from the UFO object. And the witnesses identified as many as 23 helicopters. Many of them were large double rotor CH-47 Chinooks, the others were very fast single rotor types and could be of the Bell-Huey type. The witnesses were not sure about that.
They reached home less that an hour after the incident. Betty dropped Vickie and Colby off at their home at about 9.50 and went home alone. Once home she tried to rest and waited for the sickness to pass. But it did not happen. Over the next few hours Betty's skin turned red as if badly sun burned. Her neck swelled and blisters erupted and broke on her face, scalp and eyelids. She started to vomit and continued to do so through out the night.
At the same time between midnight and two o'clock in the morning Vickie and Colby began to suffer similar symptoms.
The next morning Betty was moved to Vickie's house. They tried to help each other but Betty's condition became worse. On January 3, 1981 she was taken to hospital. She could not walk, her hair began to fall out and her eyes became so swollen that she could not see. After 12 days she left the hospital but she returned back for a treatment for the next 15 days. Vickie Landrum and her grandson Colby improved slowly but the sores on their skin and the damage to their eyes still persisted. Vickies eyesight never completely recovered and her grandson’s health was not good as he suffered hair loss and sores on his skin.
A specialist’s medical statement was the following: "We have strong evidence that these patients have suffered damage secondary to ionizing radiation. It is also possible that there was an infrared or ultraviolet component as well." Betty Cash, who was mostly exposed for the some kind of radiation, has been hospitalized at least 25 times. She has had two operations for cancer and has suffered blood and eyesight problems.
There were also others who witnessed the incident near Huffman, Texas. An off duty Dayton policeman and his wife were driving home from Cleveland through the Huffman area the same night. They observed a large number of double rotor Being CH-47 Chinooks, a special kind of the craft used by the Army and the Marines.
A man living in Crosby, directly under the flight path, also reported seeing a large number of heavy military helicopters flying overhead.
And Oilfield laborer Jerry McDonald was in his back garden in Dayton when he witnessed a large UFO flying over his head. At first he thought it was the goodyear airship, but quickly realized it was something else. "It was kind of diamond shaped and had two twin torches that were shooting brilliant blue flames out the back", he said. As it passed about 45 metres above him he saw that it had two bright lights on it and a red light in the center.
But the US army's Fort Hood press officer, Major Tony Geishauser, told the Corpus Christi Caller that no Fort Hood aircraft were in the Houston area that night.
"I don't know any other place around here that would have that number of helicopters," he said. "I don't know what it could be..... unless there's a super secret thing going on and I wouldn't necessarily know about it."
All other bases in Texas and Louisiana denied they were responsible for the helicopters seen at the incident.
The victims of this terrible incident sued the U.S government for $20 million but on August 21, 1986, the U.S. District Court judge dismissed their case, on the grounds that the American did not have such an object in their possession.
The official investigation was conducted by Lt. Col. George Sarran who concluded that "... There was no evidence presented that would indicate that Army, National Guard, or Army Reserve helicopters were involved".
