Pamphlet 1669 Nahum kc 6-1

As it was in the beginning, so shall it be at the end!

Students of God's Word know that Satan is called by many different names and titles
throughout the scriptures,
such as we find in Rev. 20:2
for example: "And he laid hold on the dragon,
that old serpent,
which is the Devil,
and Satan,
and bound him a thousand years".

He is also called the son of perdition (2 Thes. 2:3)
and Lucifer (Isa. 14:12)
and little horn (Dan. 8:9)
and vile person (Dan. 11:21),
and the adversary (1 Pet. 5:8),
and the abomination of desolation (Mark 13:14), etc., etc.

Then too, there are numerous characters and world rulers in history
who are given to us as types, as ensamples,
of Satan as the false-christ in these last days.

Some of those types include Pharaoh of Egypt,
king Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon,
the king of Assyria,
the king of Tyre, etc.,
all of whom give us as in-depth look into the oppression
and captivity of the combined Political, Educational, Religious, and Economic strongholds
he (Satan) possesses as the spiritual head of the One World System
in this final generation which is that "International Community of Nations"
now known as "The New World Order".

that One World Sociopolitical System
also has different names and types throughout the scriptures.

You see, the New World Order IS the 1st Beast of Rev. 13:1,
the multi-headed one which rises up out of the sea (people)
and is soon to be taken over and its powers "exercised"
big time by the 2nd Beast of Rev. 13:11,
who is the false messiah,
i.e. Satan who is cast out of heaven in Rev. 12:7-9
and who shall rise up... standing in the holy place... and claim to be Jesus Christ.

For example,
the International World Shipping and Trading Center
of the ancient world was the City of Tyre (Ezek. 27)
which was type of today's New World Order
giving us an in-depth look into the economic and market "Globalization"
of the nations in this final generation.

 Here in the Book of Nahum the New World Order
is likened to the City of Nineveh,
the capital of the Assyrian who invaded our people
and carried them away captive to "show us" a type
of the spiritual invasion and captivity of the Assyrian of these end times, i.e. Satan, the spurious messiah!

"the great" ancient city and first world ruling empire of "Babylon"
gets the "gold" medal for typifying the New World Order,
the last world ruling empire.

As it was in the beginning, so shall it be at the end!

That seems apropos in that Babylon,
which comes from the Hebrew word "babel" which means "confusion",
was founded by Sargon the Magnificent who was none other than Cain,
the very offspring of Satan himself.

And so it is that we have the great Book of Daniel
("Daniel" means "God is Judge")
where we see the trials and tribulation of God's children
during the reign of the false-christ
who is typified by the king of Babylon, king Nebuchadnezzar.

For example,
the king tries to make his captives (prisoners)
Daniel and his companions eat his "meat" sacrificed to idols,
which is symbolic of Satan's bad fruit,
but they refuse and endure 10 days (see Rev. 2:10) by eating pulse,
symbolizing that pure food from the Word of God.

We also see God's children,
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abedneggo,
"delivered up" before counsils (see Mark 13:9)
who threatens them with "death"
(i.e. they are delivered up to death) by being cast into a "fiery furnace"
as he tries to force them to "bow a knee"
and "worship the image" of himself which he has set up to be worshipped (as God).

Then too,
Daniel was also set up and cast into a den of devouring "lions"
of whom we read about in our last study.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
