Revelation 22:18-19 And I solemnly declare to everyone who hears the words of prophecy written in this book: If anyone adds anything to what is written here, God will add to that person the plagues described in this book. And if anyone removes any of the words from this book of prophecy, God will remove that person’s share in the tree of life and in the holy city that are described in this book. I take this very seriously. Please check what I say. The last thing I want to do is mislead anyone.

Back in June 2013 I wrote about the Anti-Christ. Looking back, I can see my views about it have changed some.

First, I believe (for the time being anyway) that the beast may be a scuba diver, or was stationed on a submarine, because Revelation 13:1 says he came up out of the sea. But looking at Revelation 13 carefully I now wonder other things about the beast. And the dragon. Many times I have heard that the seven heads and the ten horns and ten crowns are the European Union. I also heard many times that it’s the Vatican, because of the seven hills. And as far as one of the heads being killed and brought back to life… Well I’ve heard the Anti-Christ himself is killed and brought back to life. And for many years I believed it. But now, since the other night, I question it.

For a long time I have believed that the United States of America will fall. I base this on Genesis 12:3 and Deuteronomy 30:7 just to name a couple. There are more. The way we are treating Israel is not good. If we continue we will pay for it. I believe God will see to it.

Satan is called the ‘ruler of this world’. John 12:31 The time for judging this world has come, when Satan, the ruler of this world, will be cast out.

Revelation 12:3 Then I witnessed in heaven another significant event. I saw a large red dragon with seven heads and ten horns, with seven crowns on his heads.

If Satan is the ruler of the world, and the world has seven continents, then could the seven heads be the seven continents? If the US falls, we could bring down the North American continent.

Revelation 13:1-5 says the dragon (Satan) will give his authority, power, as well as his throne to the beast. One of the heads was wounded beyond recovery and yet was healed. What if, when the North American continent falls, the beast through the power of Satan, heals the US, plus Canada, plus Mexico? That would be amazing. Besides bringing someone back to life from an injury is fairly common place, these days.

So now I wonder if the seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns are the seven continents, and the ten horns and ten crowns are possibly ten nations that he owns, or controls.

So now for the next 42 months, the beast will be allowed to speak great blasphemies against God, and he was given authority to do whatever he wanted. And he did. He even waged war against God’s people. And everyone who belongs to the world, that is who does not have their name in the Book of Life from the beginning, will worship the guy. Revelation 13:5-8

I know that Revelation 13:8 says All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world, may seem to go against John 3:16, but it doesn’t. I used to have a big dog who loved riding in the back of my pickup. How she gets into the back of the truck was her choice. But I knew my dog. I knew she would jump up and down, run across the street into the neighbor’s yard, then run full speed and jump into the back of the truck. The point is, God knows us so well, even before time itself, He knows what we’ll do.

Now a second beast comes with the authority of the first, does miracles, have people worship the first beast, and then had what I still believes is a 3-D video made of the first beast. Everyone who does not worship the 3-D video of the first beast will die. Revelation 13:11-15

Finally the beast, (I believe the first one) will have everyone get a mark either on the hand or the forehead. If they don’t they can’t buy or sell. My guess is everyone will be more than willing. Now what causes the mark, I don’t know. Revelation 13:16-18
