The Sea Beast - Part II

The Roman Kingdom becomes - "The Roman Empire"

Revelation 13 : 1 - 8

     "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.  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.  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.  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?' 
     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.  And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.  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.  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."

     The above verses, is to me, in my mind and without a doubt, pertaining to the Roman Empire from it's start with the deadly wound and 10 provinces, to its division down to the last emperor who would be crowned within Rome and his subsequent death thus ending the empire officially (although there is more to the story than meets the eye here concerning the crown and authority both past and present).  Not only does all the afore mentioned hold true, but this beast had something, it was pregnant so to speak as well as having dealings with three powers.
     Before we go any further, there is one main point of importance that needs to be understood.  First, this beast is not the dragon/devil although it has its authority.  Secondly, this beast John is looking at would be at the point where the Roman Empire gets divided and quartered along with it's prior history and to the future subsequent ending of rulership as well as him seeing far into the future with it's dealings with 3 powers and its offspring (the earth beast with the crowning of the first Christian Emperor eventually leading to the Holy Roman Empire) which would continue the legacy up to the sea beasts final breath with the rise of the Fourth Reich (in which I'll explain later) to the fourth and final beast in Revelation which is currently in place and alive today awaiting the arrival of it's original authority to regain it's title and throne.
     This beast truly is an astounding wonderment.  I'm amazed by the accuracy of recorded history in relation to the accuracy of what is written biblically and of all the hidden truths that have been kept secret in which now I'm about to reveal.
     Please take a moment to get yourself a beverage and get comfortable.  This beast has a long history which has continued up to the present day in which one will have to read slowly and carefully in order to understand as to what I reveal.  Again, you got to study your history and put two and two together.  I can't stress enough how important history is.

First, the wounded head :

     As I explained previously about the dragon and what it represented we can now continue the story from the historical perspective.
     Previously we left off with the seventh king of the Roman Kingdom.  After this king had fled after being ousted by what became the Roman Republic, there appeared one key person who would be appointed by the Roman Republic and would subsequently be the bridge between the Dragon (Kingdom/Republic) and the start of the Roman Empire (Sea Beast).
     A dictatorship was instituted by the Romans and whomever held this office was given complete authority over all of Rome's civil and military matters. This dictatorship only had a six-month term limit which prevented the dictator from becoming a king.
     Since the Roman Republic was the main governing authority after the seventh king, over time, it gave it's authority over to Gaius Julius Caesar after being elected pontifex maximus and dictator for life which made him an imperator known as an emperor.  Hence Ceasar was the first de facto Emperor of Rome and gained the dragon's authority in which Rome now became officially an empire with one man as CEO at the behest of the shareholders.  This also led to empirical worship and divinity and hatred towards Israel and true Christians in which they were persecuted, killed and scattered throughout history to this present day.
     Whomever worshiped the emperor in retrospect worshiped the beast/dragon.  These events provoked a friend of Caesar known as Marcus Junius Brutus and a group of other senators to assassinate the dictator in 44 BC.  Hence the wounded head of the empire.
     This of course, is not the end.  For the wound did heal.  Surprise!!  Caesar had a written will!  In his will, Julius had appointed his adopted son Octavian as his heir.  The senate later gave him title of Augustus in 27 BC and he stayed in office till his death passing authority down to his adoptive son Tiberius which led to a long line of succession of emperors throughout the history of this empire.

The 10 horns each having a crown :

     The 10 horns have been previously explained in Daniels Dream Part III with links concerning Diocletian's Reforms as well as in the The Dragon Part I of Revelation.  If you've put the cart before the horse and started within this study first, I would suggest starting at the beginning in Nebuchadnezzar's dream.
     For the sake of brevity without going back and explaining territorial conquests and the organizing of those territories, I'll just give the sum of the situation concerning the ten horns.
     These horns are the 10 original provinces of Rome (along with later conquered additions, divisions, sub-divisions and sub-subdivisions which became Imperial provinces) put under Empirical rule in which Octavian Augustus had "decreed" that there would be at least 10 senatorial provinces.  Hence the crowning of each horn by declaration of an Emperor!
     The eleventh horn as spoken of in Daniel which is not mentioned here or anywhere in the book of Revelation (this of course would make perfect logical sense) is the last province established after it being conquered --the Kingdom of Dacia-- with the establishment of Rome's Empirical authority (after its division) within Byzantium, later to be called Constantinople which is now Istanbul, Turkey.  Keep this in mind for it is what was conceived within this beast and came out of it known as the earth beast.

The name of blasphemy :

     Notice that what is stated is name of blasphemy not names.  This usage of the name would be of course blaspheming God Almighty.  So where are we to look?  Of course it would be religion.
     First we have to recall Tarquinius Superbus building the Temple of Jupiter on Capitol Hill.  This religion continued on into the empire with the king's religious powers going to two new offices;  The Rex Sacrorum and the Pontifex Maximus.
     The name of blasphemy would of course be Jupiter.  In Roman Mythology, Jupiter was known as the "Supreme God", patron of the Roman state and brother and husband of Juno. Jupiter would also relate to the Babylonian God Marduk (which became a "Supreme God" within Babylonian religion and occultism) with the Babylonian Religion along with its occultism penetrating into Rome during the Roman Empire.

     The likeness of a lion, a leopard and a bear :  These three likenesses are going to be explained in three alphabetical categories, for all three carry different retrospect's throughout history.

Part A :

     1.  The Lion - in relation to Daniel would be the conquering of Babylon.
     2.  The Leopard - in relation to Daniel would be the conquering of Greece.
     3.  The Bear - in relation to Daniel would be the conquering of Medeo/Persia.

The above three all became a part of the Roman Empire with political, cultural and religious aspects being adopted within the empire.

Part B :

     1.  The Lion - The Empire Spoke with Authority as a King and Devoured it's Prey.
     2.  The Leopard - The Empire grew quickly with it's aid of the military.
     3.  The Bear - The Empire would become lopsided with the power and seat of authority shifting from West to East due to the division of the empire and it being quartered into four prefectures by Diocletian and his establishment of a Tetrarchy after dividing the Roman Empire into East and West.

All the above has happened in the history of the Roman Empire in which it continues to this very day under the guise of Church and State.  Rome.

Part C :  The below is a study within itself concerning modern day history in relation to the past, present and subsequent future.

    1.  The Lion - England in relation to Rome and the Holy Roman Empire and correlates to the lion in the book of Daniel concerning Babylon (modern day Iraq) with an extra twist.  It also correlates to Mystery Babylon/Babylon the Great.  Also of noteworthy importance, the lion had two wings of an eagle in the book of Daniel within Daniel's dream.  Not only does this relate to Babylon, the Babylonian king and its rise as an empire but this would also correlate to the United States and it's relation to England and the Holy Roman Empire.

     2.  The Bear - Russia in relation to Rome and the Holy Roman Empire and also correlates to the bear in the book of Daniel concerning the Medes/Persians (modern day Iran), Psalm 83 and Gog/Magog that are in the 4 corners (4 feet of a bear) of the earth (meaning north, south, east and west) concerning Islam and its allies that are presently surrounding the people of Israel.

     3.  The Leopard - Germany and Greece in relation to Rome and the Holy Roman Empire and also correlates to the leopard with the four heads along with the four wings meaning extreme swiftness in the book of Daniel within Daniel's Dream.  Each leopard head with a wing.

     If you have ever studied history about Germany, there were three Reich's which came and went in rapid succession.  Germany is very important concerning this prophecy due to the fact that King Otto was the first of the Germans to be called the Emperor of Italy and also Holy Roman Emperor being crowned by the pope who was also German subsequently starting the First Reich.  We are now at the Fourth Head.  Germany has a Spiritual and Empirical Leader combined in one (as of 2005) as was the start of Rome in relation to the Kings being both King and spiritual leader before the religious aspects were later given to two offices.  This Fourth Reich will not last long with the coming 8th head which is the final head on the fourth beast in the prophetical book of revelation.
     The dirty work is done and the full circle is almost complete.  Rome and Germany are ages old long-time enemies and Rome will more than likely have a Roman Leader of Latin descent which whom may just fill the position of the 8th head.  This 8th head will be explained in Part V The Harlot that Rides the Beast.

Continues forty-two months :

Now here is where most so called "prophecy experts" lose it concerning time frame.  They do not take into account the following :

1.  That a calendar year equaled 364 days before the Julian/Gregorian Calendars were implemented and that it actually existed before the implementation.

2.  Scripture reference where 1 day equals one year in the books of Numbers 14 : 33 - 34, and Ezekiel 4 : 4 - 6.

3.  The book of Enoch, which isn't a canonical book but a christian writing none the less, which states that a year is 364 days.

4.  The Dead Sea Scrolls, 4Q321 (Mishmarot Ba) where the 364 days in a year is mentioned.

5.  7 days x 52 weeks equaling 364 days (or one year)

6.  That the 364 day calendar can prove bible timeline quite accurately.

7.  That the 364 day calendar as well as history will expose prophetical falsehoods presented by religion, false prophets and secular viewpoints of the past and modern day.

With all the above being stated as far as timeline we now can look at history along with the math.

     First the Math :

1.  42 months divided by 12 months = 3.5 or 3 1/2 years

2.  3.5 years times 364 days = 1,274 days

3.  Now if one uses the above scripture reference where 1 day is for 1 year then 1,274 days would be 1,274 years!

     You may be wondering what this would have to do with anything.  History.  It is all in the history.  One must follow the crown concerning emperors, kings and all aspects of Rome up to the present day.  Recorded history holds the keys.
     This beast that was being explained to John was at the time of the start of the division of the Roman Empire in 284 AD by Diocletian to the last "Rightful" Emperor who was Charles V being crowned in Rome in 1516 AD with his subsequent death in 1558 AD even though there were successors in which they were never crowned but only carried a title of "Emperor Elect".
     The office of Holy Roman Emperor was later dissolved in 1806 after Francis II, the last "Emperor Elect" during the Napoleonic wars.  This will be shown in the proof of the historical timeline within Part III concerning the beast that arises out of the earth.

Now for the proof of the math and the history with nothing left as a remainder :

     The death of Charles V in 1558 AD minus 1,274 years = year 284 AD, the very time Diocletian divided and quartered the Roman Empire and establishing Roman authority from the West to the East.  This coincides exactly to a "T" of the feet of the beast being a bear along with the lopsidedness as well as the empire being divided and quartered !

Adding insult to injury :

     Dissolution of office of "Emperor Elect" in 1806 AD minus 1,274 years = 532 AD, the very time of Justinian I and the rise of the little horn with the Nika Riot!  Again, the feet of the bear with it's lopsidedness as well its division and it being quartered!
