“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having 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 were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear,” Revelation 13:1-9.
“Ponder the state of affairs…..
Ponder the state of affairs and tell me: Are you better because of the ruthless man who is leading you now?
Ponder about the state of affairs in your land.
Are the poor taken care of?
Are you safe from all harm in your land?
I tell you that very soon that your land will be split right down the middle. I have warned you many times about this. No more will be seen the same configuration in your land.
Where once there was land, there then will be a great expanse of water, for the land will rumble and roar, and it will split right down the middle.
The Great Lakes will spill their water, and where once there was the Mississippi River, now there will be a gulf of water that fills the gap.
For you oh land, are divided in so many ways. You are divided between rich and poor. You are divided between black and white.
You are divided between blue and red. And because of these things, I will divide your land,” says The LORD.
“You will weep, and say, ‘Why has this happened to us?’ You will cry for the loss of life. You will search for the reasons why. But I tell you this, I will not utterly destroy you.
For there is still a remnant, and this remnant will not give in to the beast. For that system has begun, and yet many of you are unaware of it.
For it will be a complete take over of your government. For your very form of democracy is coming to an end. Do you not see this?
For the powers that be are planning this. And yet some think that a golden age will return. There are some apostles that think that better things are to come, and yet these are those who have not studied what my word says is to come.
These think that I will help them reform every area of society into a new government; and yet that is not so.
For have I not said that perilous times will come?
Have I not said that the beast will arise and he will deceive many, and that if possible he will deceive even the elect?
But stand your ground, my people, for I will equip you in these days, and you will be able to endure through them.”
