"The Deadly Wound to the beast of Revelation chapter 13"
Rev 13:3 "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."

Caution to students of God's Word - Please remember two things when using our American Wisdom Series studies:
#1. Our commentary is not God's Word. It is only our interpretation or understanding of "His Word" and even though we try our best to be accurate we may or may not be correct. #2. The King James translation, or any other translation, of the original Hebrew text has some words which were given different translations at different places probably because of the interpreters preconceived ideas of what they think God meant to say. For example: According to the notes in the "Drake's Annotated Reference Bible" the Hebrew word hayah in the KJV is Trans. (became) 67 times, (becamest or came to pass) 505 times, (become) 66 times, and (come to pass) 131 times, but for some reason in Genesis 1:2 it is translated (was)! That sure changes the way a person perceives the original creation of the earth, doesn't it?  Gen. 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, ... Having said that, let us continue with our "studies". These studies contain knowledge, we believe, you must have to fully and accurately unlock and understand the Word of God. 
May the Holy Spirit be your only guiding light. Sincerely, John Rhine

Revelation 2:17  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:13-14
[13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. [14] He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Without the leading by the Holy Spirit, there is no understanding of the truths, for all the truth of the Scriptures are revealed to us by God's Spirit.

 Now here is our revised study of:

The Deadly Wound

Part 1

In this study we will do a little research on the "deadly wound" of these end times.
This "deadly wound" is spoken of in Revelation 13:3, and is going to be a wound to the political beast of this end time.

It will be the next prophetic event, so let's try to understand exactly what is involved with this wound.

First of all, you must understand that there are two beasts spoken of
in the thirteenth chapter of the book of Revelation.

These beasts are two different systems that will take over the world in the final days of this age of flesh man.

To understand what this deadly wound is, and how it applies, we must take a close look at the geographical locations that are involved in this event and we must realize that there are to be two woundings.

The first beast is a political system which must be wounded before the second beast can take power. 

The second beast is Satan, the false-christ, and his wounding will take place when Jesus Christ returns at the seventh trump.

So lets take a look at what the wound is, and how it applies, and what we must do to apply it?

Rev 13:1 "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."

The "Sea" in Revelation is symbolic of "water", and water is symbolic of peoples

John is telling us that as he looked back from the day of the Lord, where he was taken to,  "in the spirit," by the Lord, he saw the people of the world. 

This beast that rose out of the peoples of the world, came from all the seven continents of the world and will come from seven entities of power and those men or entities of power will rule over this one world system. 

To "blasphemy" is to tare down the truth of God, through Jesus the Christ. In other words, this one world system will stand against that which we know to be true Christianity from God's Word. It will be against the teaching of Jesus Christ. This blasphemy will be world wide.

This particular beast that rose from this water is not a entity/person, but it has many heads, or agencies that will each govern their own area. 

It is not a monster, like you often see portrayed in comic books in telephone books. 

This beast is a one world political system that is already being formed today.

This symbolism being, used here, is to help us better understand what God is telling us about this political beast.

This political beast will take in all seven continents of this world for the sole purpose of blaspheming and leading the people away from the true God.

Rev 13:2 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."

We know from the book of Daniel that this beast was likened to the leopard, which had spots.

Moses told us in Deuteronomy 32, that this beast's spots were not like the spots of God's people. 

The "beast" as used here, used the bear to do it's traveling and put into effect all the things that would be done within this political system.

We know from past studies that this bear nation in the last days is Russia.

We read in Revelation 5:1 that it was the "Lion of Judah", Jesus Christ, which will be the one that has the right to open the seals talked about there.

This means that the very Christian people who follow Jesus Christ were the mouth that brought this political beast into reality.

 We Christians used the mobility of Russia, but the strength of our own Christian peoples to bring this beast into existence. If it were not for the Christians in our land and the free world, the Kenites, (children of Satan through Cain), would not have their tiny nation called Israel to control today.

 It was us Christians who sponsored it into establishment back in May 15, 1948. It is also the Christian nations that protect her when the rest of the world wants to dismantle Israel out of existence

Of course the "dragon" is the role that Satan will play in these end times. He comes to earth in person when Micheal casts him to the earth, from heaven.

Satan's presence here as the instead-of-christ will be so convincing to Christians that they will gladly allow this one world system to take complete control. He will appear, as God, and appear to bring peace to the middle east, and Christians will believe he is God. 

The time of crying "peace peace peace" started all the way back shortly after the second world war,  and all the time that they cried "peace" there was no peace. The earth has been covered with all kinds of local wars between neighboring nations, all over religion, but Satan, will appear to have changed that.

There shall not be any real peace within the world until Jesus Christ returns at the seventh trumpet and all evil is done away with.

Part 2

Rev 13:3 "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."

Notice that the entire world "wondered after the beast".

The first beast again is

a one world political system, and the second beast, Satan, will heal this deadly wound that has destroyed the world wide earth.

He will look and do the miracles that the people expect that Jesus ought to do, however, this beast is not Christ, but Satan.

This is that apostasy that is spoken of throughout Revelation.

II Thessalonians 2:3 "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;"

We are now in that hour of this first political beast, so we must be more specific in our understanding of this deadly wound to that political system.

How does it take place? 

Many today think that when the Bible talks about tribulation it is talking about blood running down the streets, but this is the deception and confusion that will be upon the Christian peoples of the world.

The fall of the second beast will not be in a political sense, but in a religious sense.  So how do you wound a lie, and a false system? By correcting it with the truth.

The credit of the correction that shall take place must go to the Father, as
is recorded in the Song of Moses of Deuteronomy 32. Revelation 15:3 states that this is the song that all those that overcome Satan in these last days will be singing in the Millennium age. The Song of Moses tells us who it is that shall be doing the wounding.

Deut 32:39 "See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal; neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand."

This is the Father speaking and He is saying, "I and I alone..." The point that we get from this is that it is not the dragon that heals the wound to the first beast, but God who allowed the first beast of the one world system to be healed. The healing is an important part of the plan of God, and God would not entrust that to Satan. God is in control all the time, and we can count on that.

Deut 32:40 "For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever."

All God has to do is lift His hand to heaven and say the words, and he has eternity forever. Father is God.

Deut 32:41 "If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment; I will render vengeance to mine enemies, and will reward them that hate me. "

Judgment comes on the last day of this earth age, when He will do all judgment for our evil acts and we will get our just reward.

Deut 32:42 "I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy."

So we see that there will be many times other than Armageddon and Hamon-gog that God will take revenge upon his enemies. There will be a beginning to this, and it should not be a mystery to any of us. This is your part. Jesus told us that, "He came not to bring peace to the world, but to bring fire, and how happy I will be when I come to find it already kindled." 

God's fire is the truth, for God is a consuming fire.
By the time that the Satan arrives on earth, as the false-christ, you are supposed to have
that truth already established in your mind.

 However, there is no way that

you can do this, unless you know what it is that you are to do.

So the question becomes; How do you create the deadly wound to the first beast?

The wound that Satan comes and heals!

And that is what this study is all about.

King David gave a good example of this, and it was through his lineage that the Lion of Judah would come, namely Jesus the Christ. It is Jesus Christ that is the one that opens those seven seals to the truth. David set forth the examples of the slaying of the beast, when he took those stones to kill Goliath.

King Saul had his army standing against the army of the Philistines. These great warriors of Israel are standing there and shaking in their boots because across the valley this giant called Goliath appeared. The reports of this giant were that he was from ten to fourteen feet tall. Goliath's armor alone weighed approximately two hundred and seventy three pounds. The arrows that were for his bow were twenty three feet long and weighed thirty pounds. This Giant standing in full armor, with is full quiver of arrows made the Israelite's army shake. Daily, Goliath would come before the Israelites and taunt the soldiers, and make them even more scared.

Then God's weapon appeared, David the sheep herder, whose duties were to look out for his Father's sheep.

Are you starting to relate this to the true Shepherd who is Jesus Christ?

 Christ tends to the sheep, and if you claim the name of Christ, you are one of the sheep He cares for.

 The children of Israel are the sheep. David's father told David to take food to his brothers that are in the army of Saul. As David is coming to where the soldiers are, he sees the fear of the soldiers, and the giants across the way. David heard the best troops of Israel being scorned and taunted.

1 Sam 17:22-23 "And David left his carriage in the hand of the keeper of the carriages, and ran into the army, and came and saluted his brethren. And as he talked with them, behold, there came up the champion, the Philistine of Gath, Goliath by name, out of the armies of the Philistines, and spake according to the same words: and David heard them."

"Gath" in the Hebrew tongue means "winepress". Keep this in mind for later. Goliath was challenging all the army to come forth and do battle with him.

1 Sam 17:24-25 "And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid. And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father's house free in Israel."

This is quite a promise to anyone that would step forward and slay the giant. Don't believe for a moment that this is the prize that David wanted for standing against the giant. 

What David wanted was the will of God, whereas Saul was going to make the warrior that fought Goliath a son to him, marrying his daughter, and give his family freedom from all taxes to the king.

1 Sam 17:26 "And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?"

David is telling his brothers and the rest of the army, what does it matter what Saul offers anyone, this man is defying the armies of the living God.

1 Sam 17:27 "And the people answered him after this manner, saying, So shall it be done to the man that killeth him."

David is hearing the talk that is going on around him, and goes up to his oldest brother.

1 Sam 17:28 "And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle."

Eliab loved his younger brother very much, but he was ashamed that David would see the Israelite army standing there in fear before one man. 

The thing that disturbed David the most was the blasphemy of the one True God.

You will see this same blasphemy again in our generation when the giants of this world are going to stand there and blasphem every thing that is holy in the eyes of our Father. Satan is going to be blaspheming Christ that died on the cross, and you will hear it with your own ears. It will be so full of blasphemy that Satan will even claim to be the Christ, and God himself.

When he stands on that mountain, or nation, of the "one world order,"

 the army of the Lord, that call themselves Christians, will stand there and shake in their boots.

They are going to believe him and go over into Satan's camp in ignorance.
Therefore; they will receive that deadly wound themselves.

David hears what Eliab said, and he remembers the sheep.

1 Sam 17:29 "And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?"

What David is saying is in the Hebrews text is; "There is a cause here and
you should have done something, if you don't, I will..."

1 Sam 17:30-31 "And he turned from him toward another, and spake after the same manner: and the people answered him again after the former manner. And when the words were heard which David spake, they rehearsed them before Saul: and he sent for him."

It didn't take long that all the men in this army were getting a little ashamed, and the word got back to Saul. This little lad is getting the job done when all the promises of Saul still had not found a taker.

1 Sam 17:32 "And David said to Saul, Let no man's heart fail because of him; thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine."

David stood boldly and told Saul, don't be afraid of that Philistine, I'll go and fight that Philistine myself.

1 Sam 17:33 "And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth."

This giant is experienced and tough, and you are just a lad. You are no match for this great man of war.

1 Sam 17:34 "And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:"

This bear and lion, didn't we read something of another bear and lion concerning the beast of the end times also receiving a deadly wound? That beast of the end times moved with the power of the feet of the bear, and spoke with the mouth of the lion. David had already conquered the bear and the lion. Remember that these beasts had already taken a lamb, a little one that had been deceived and taken from out of the flock.

1 Sam 17:35 "And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him."

I don't think that very few of the others standing in the army of Saul had faced a bear and lion and killed them before. The point to the entire subject is that David was protecting the lambs.

1 Sam 17:36 "Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God."

Notice: David did not say the "armies of Israel", but the "armies of the living God".

David is going into battle in God's name, because there is no power of this magnitude amongst all the armies of Israel.

1 Sam 17:37 "David said moreover, The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the LORD be with thee."

I want to assure you that this bear, or one world system called the bear nation
, and the lion which are the followers of Christ, have truly lost their direction.

It is their mouths that shall deceive and cause the deception to take place because of their ignorance.

They do this because of their ignorance of the dragon, the false christ.

They simply do not expect any false-christ for their traditions have convinced them that they will not be here for the tribulation, when Satan the Dragon arrives,

It is what most Christian churches teach about the tribulation.

They will believe Satan to be the true Christ who has come to rapture them away

Just like God delivered David out of the hand of Goliath, He shall also deliver you out of the hand of these beasts of the end times. God protected David from the lion and the bear in his day, and we just don't have to worry about the lion's mouth, and the bear of our generation. 

Included in the bear are Russia and all the nations that go to make up the beast of the one world system, and that goes also for the Christians that give their support to that beast. 

There is only one nation, and that is true Israel, and God's elect are the ones that make up that nation.

When the millennium age starts, every nation will join themselves to that nation, [The True Israel] or the simply will not exist.

This is not a game, for God has promised us the victory and we shall have it.

If you want to get into the only politics that is lasting, than get into our Father's political camp.

 We are going to win because God has already given us the victory.

However, you have to declare it for yourself.

That is exactly what David did for himself.

Again, David said; "The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion,
and out of the paw of the bear, He will deliver me out of the hand of the Philistine".

As David approached that giant, he probably appeared to be twice that size as David looked up from the brook after selecting his five stones. Don't be afraid of the things of this world, for our Heavenly Father controls everything that happens in our world. Remember however, you as one of God's elect are the one that starts the beginning.

Part 3

1 Sam 17:38 And Saul armed David with his armor, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail.

You don't have to be bright to know that this is not the Gospel armor that Paul warned us of. There is only one armor that the elect of God uses, and that is the armor God has given in Ephesians 6:10-20.

The armor of the world will tie you up and weight you down to where you can't make a move.

1 Sam 17:39 And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.

To "assayed" something means that you checked it over real good, by putting it on and proving to yourself that you can do battle with it on and in place. Once David had the armor on, he knew immediately that the king's armor was not right for him, it just would not work. This sheep herder knew that not only could he not wear the armor and swing the sword, but he would be crows bait if that is what he wore to go up against the giant for battle.

The point here for us today, is that we are to use common sense when we are in a place of spiritual battle, and use the appropriate spiritual armor that God has given us from His Word.

 Those words are proved and will stand the test of time, and they are backed up by our Lord's promise to us, His elect.

Just like David knew what was needed for his battle, so also God's elect also know what is necessary for the spiritual battle that we will face in these end times.

1 Sam 17:40 And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd's bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.
41 And the Philistine came on and drew near unto David; and the man that bare the shield went before him.

Five is the number of grace, and David chose those five smooth stones.

 The brook today is the water of life, and David was the shepherd of his father's sheep.

 This is symbolic of that which is yet to come.

 David's script was the purse that he carried. David prepared himself for the battle against the giant, and he had all that was necessary to go into that battle. He did not carry unnecessary baggage into battle.

David crossed that brook and he started his approach up the other side of that hill to face the giant that wanted to kill him.

1 Sam 17:41 And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.

Goliath's old shield is so heavy that he has to have another man just to help carry his baggage and armor.

1 Sam 17:43 And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.

Goliath's gods were, of course Dagon and Baal, and to our generation, it would be Satan. The threats that come from the enemy are spoken to intimidate the one's listening. The time will come when those will stand there and curse you and shout at you for the stand that you are taking. Yet you will stand tall for God will give you the victory. However it did not intimidate David for he knew what he was armed with and he knew how to use the weapons that were in his hand.

1 Sam 17:44  And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.

1 Sam 17:45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

You can have your swords and shields of this world's warfare, but I come in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel. David came in the name of the living God Jesus Christ.

1 Sam 17:46 This day will the LORD deliver thee into mine hand; and I will smite thee, and take thine head from thee; and I will give the carcasses of the host of the Philistines this day unto the fowls of the air, and to the wild beasts of the earth; that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.

David knew exactly that the Lord would deliver Goliath into his hand, and God is getting all the credit for the victory. However, there was a purpose that all this had happened, and there will also be a purpose that God will give you the victory in our day. That purpose was that all the people of the earth, in their flesh bodies would know that there was a God in Israel.

Just a moment ago, this discussion was talking about Russia and all the world, but here the only thing that mattered is concerning whether the elect will do something to bring Israel back to God.

You had better believe it for there is victory through the Father.

This story has become a fairy-tale story in our modern times, but this is a fact, it happened, and it is also a type of what shall happen again in our day.

 It was not David that accomplished it, but the Heavenly Father.

1 Sam 17:47 And all this assembly shall know that the LORD saveth not with sword and spear: for the battle is the LORD's, and he will give you into our hands.

This message is to God's people. The battle of our day is not going to be with sword and spear, for the battle is the Lord's, it is a spiritual battle that will be fought with the sword of the Lord, which is His Word.

When you remember that, the victory will be ours.

This is a lesson directed to our day, but there are many within our land that have become so tied up with the armor, the money and the politics of this world, that they have lost sight of the battle at hand. The battle is the Lord's, and it is fought just as God has told us that battle is fought in His Words. The battle of our day is a spiritual battle that is fought with words, ideas and precepts that come right out of the Word of God.

Satan uses those Words to twist and change to deceive those that call themselves Christians, of the Lion of the tribe of Judah, Jesus Christ.

You can accumulate twenty million dollars, and all the swords for every man's hand, however if there is not one smart man in the bunch, that knows how to fight a battle, it is all a waste. The reason that there is not a smart man in the bunch is that their traditions have blinded themselves, and they can't read this with understanding.

The point that David was making and that is basic for our day is that the Lord doesn't use swords and spears like man to do his battles,

 He uses wisdom.

 Israel listened and Israel learned the lesson that David gave to them on that hillside.

The next time you go into a spiritual battle with heavy weights of the religious world, think of that light headed boy out there on that ridge facing the giant that wanted to destroy him. The same God that protected David is there by your side to fight your battle for you also. All it takes is you and the Lord, it doesn't take a committee.

Part 4

1 Sam 17:48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came and drew nigh to meet David, that David hasted, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.

When it was time to do battle, David was ready to meet the Philistine. He was ready with all he needed to face and defeat the enemy.

1 Sam 17:49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

My fellow Christian, I hope you know what your rock is.

And with one of those five selected stones, David gave a deadly wound to the head of that worldly giant.

1 Sam 17:50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.

Was David concerned with the wound that he had inflicted on Goliath?

 Throw all that garbage out of your mind that is put out by most church houses today.

 Stick to the Word of God as that is how it is going to be.

 There is going to be a wounding, and there
will be an overcoming of the bear, and the trot that comes from the mouth of the lion in these final days.

 David won the battle with the selected stone, and it wasn't by accident that the battle took place. The stone was selected from the brook of the water, the living water. That stone is given to all those that have the ears to hear with understanding and it is given in the book of Revelation.

The lads that will stand against the giant of today, are the seven thousand that will stand against the entire one world system, when the entire church system has gone over to the support of that beast system.

 Through Jesus Christ, we are going to bring down our Goliath. We are going to use common sense, and the Word of God when we stand against this false Christ.

 There will be no acceptance of his lies and false teachings, as we sling the stones of the truth back at him and his beast.

Lets document this for you from Revelation 2:17.

Revelation 2:17 "He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it."

This is all it takes to document everything that has been stated to this point.

 The hidden manna is the hidden truths that are hidden from all other eyes.

 The eyes of the world are blinded from this hidden manna, however to those who have the full truth of God's Word, a "white stone" is given.

 If you want that white stone from the brook that David slew Goliath with, then you must know this stone, which is the Word of God.

You will know it all or you will be deceived.

There is a little lesson in Greek here, but check it out for yourself. In the Strong's Greek Concordance and dictionary, this word for "stone" is number 5586,

5586 psephos (psay'-fos);
from the same as 5584; a pebble (as worn smooth by handling), i.e. (by implication of use as a counter or ballot) a verdict (of acquittal) or ticket (of admission); a vote: KJV-- stone, voice.

5584 pselaphao (psay-laf-ah'-o);
from the base of 5567 (compare 5586); to manipulate, i.e. verify by contact; figuratively, to search for: KJV-- feel after, handle, touch.

It is a pebble that is well used as a means for counting over a long period of time.

This word used here is used only once in the entire Word of God, and no where else.

 Also in the thirteenth chapter concerning this old beast and his mark, there is another number used that means count the number of the beast.

 That number "count" and it's method was from the root of this same word.

 The number was "666", and it also used pebbles or stones, only it numbered the beast over a long period of time, all the way back to the garden of Eden, when Cain was conceived, and he had his children.

The stone that you must have in your sling today is the truth of God's Word concerning the kenites.

God's Word is a miracle as it flows from the Old Testament to the New Testament, and all it's truths are locked together.

 From the first bear to the last bear, from the first lion, to the last lion, from the first stone, to the last stone, and it is perfect for every generation.

 The wounding to the beast must be accomplished, and when it takes place it is only God that gets the credit for the victory.

 If God opens your ears to the truth, give Him the thanks for it is God that is going to do it, and allow you to see exactly what is going on.

If God chooses you to be part of the seven thousand, then fall to your knees and thank Him for the opportunity to serve Him.

We have heard the words over and over, "it is written", and unfortunately, we are slow in coming to the understanding of the full truth of God's Word.

The battle against the beast is coming very soon, and I hope you have taken that stone of God's Word to prepare yourself for the battle to come.

That is your only hope of not being deceived.

Editor's question: When we are ask, to count the number of the beast, aren't we are really being ask to count the number of Cain's/Satan's descendants living among us?
Rev. 13:18
 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six

Live Link to- Count the number of the beast! Lets take a look at Cain and his children throughout the scriptures.

Part 5

"The Political System and the false-christ."

In this study as we continue to look into the wounding of the beast of the end times, we must keep in mind that this will happen in the very last hours of this earth age of the flesh.
At the most, a five months period, and at this time there will be a one world political system in place. That system will rule over all seven dominions, which are the continents, and it will have ten men or agencies ruling over it.

Many people have made the sad mistake of blaming the Catholic church , or any one of many other religious groups that have become strong and numerous. But, when we check God's Word out, we see that it will be a political entity, not a religious entity.

 Geographically, the head of this one world system will set it's control up and rule from Jerusalem.
Well, Jerusalem, is not Rome, or New York.

You cannot put forth the idea of putting Christians as the center of running this system, for Christians love Christ.

 So let's continue this study somewhere out of the Christian camp to test the spirits, to see where those are that would make a stand against God. Jerusalem makes a good place to start, because geographically, that is where Jesus Christ said that it would be.

II Thessalonians 2:3-4 " Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God."

Satan is the "son of perdition" that will sit in Jerusalem claiming that he is God, and demanding that the entire world worship him.

This is why it is important to know what is happening in Jerusalem.

That is where the "abomination of desolation" will take place.

 That abomination is Satan declaring himself to be God, and the entire world believing it.

Matthew 24:15-16 "When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains:"

Even a child should be able to understand that something bad is happening.

 Yet even with this set of instructions, people still prefer to keep themselves in the dark as to where to look and what to look for, to find the beasts, the enemies of Christ of the last days.

These are the people that just don't believe on Him as a nation.

This one world political system has to receive a deadly wound, before the religious part of the beast system can take supreme authority.

 A deadly wound to a political system means that it must come to an abrupt halt.

This one world system ties in with the prophecy that declares "..and they shall cry peace, peace, peace, and there shall be no peace."
Jeremiah 6:14.

 There shall never be true peace until the Prince of true Peace, Jesus Christ comes to this earth.

So now, how can we figure out exactly how this wounding takes place?

 Remember from the first part of this study, from
Deuteronomy where God himself said, "...I wound, I heel, I control..."?

 So the person that causes the deadly wound is still the same person that is in full control of all that shall take place. It is our Heavenly Father that shall cause the deadly wound, and the time and manner that is within His plan and purpose.

This should give us a clue to help us find that wound.

What is given is for your consideration, but remember, that it is you personally that must decide to stand against the beast, or the other alternative is for you to join his, Satan's, system.

You alone must make your own mind up as to which it will be. These are only the things and facts that we should be watching for, in the relationship of our waiting for this deadly wound.

 This is the next major prophetic event that is within the plan of the living God.

This deadly wound is mentioned several times in the Minor Prophets, and in David's battle that took place with Goliath, and what happened with the Philistines in the "valley of Elah".  And there is another battle that will take place also in that same location.

These are types that are given in God's Word for your consideration, and as Paul said in
1 Corinthians 10:11:
"Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."

Remember in Isaiah 14, the "Assyrian" is a type of the Antichrist [instead-of-Christ].
 The Companion Bible will back this statement up.

 In other words, the words and deeds that the Assyrian king accomplished are the same words and deeds that Satan will accomplish in his role as the Assyrian of the end times.

This is to say that those prophetic events are going to give us a clue as to what the Antichrist will be doing in the last days. The Minor Prophets have given a close look as to what we can expect to happen in those final days.

Nahum 3:7  And it shall come to pass, that all they that look upon thee shall flee from thee, and say, Nineveh is laid waste: who will bemoan her? whence shall I seek comforters for thee?

This has to do with the city of Nineveh, which was the capitol of Assyria. This was the city that Jonah was sent to, to preach repentance. This is saying here that when the city of Nineveh is destroyed, there will be no one left to bemoan her.

Nahum 3:8  Art thou better than populous No, that was situate among the rivers, that had the waters round about it, whose rampart was the sea, and her wall was from the sea?

"Populus No" in the Hebrew text is "No'-Amom" of the city of the Egyptian gods. This river was the Nile, and God is asking Nineveh if she thinks she is any better off than the city of the Egyptian gods over there by the Nile? This city on the Nile had a natural fortress built around her, and it is important that we pay attention to the geographical locations.

Nahum 3:9 Ethiopia and Egypt were her strength, and it was infinite; Put and Lubim were thy helpers.

Remember these names, these will be discussed in a little bit. "Put" were among the mercenaries at Tyre of Ezekiel 27:10, and Ethiopia strengthened her while Egypt defended her. Tyre is a type used for the name of Satan, and Satan is called the "king of Tyre", the king of the rock, over the many stones that were worn smooth over a long period of time. Of course we are referring to the kenites, the sons and the offspring of Cain.

Part 6

"The Political System and the Antichrist." (continued)

Nahum 3:10 Yet was she carried away, she went into captivity: her young children also were dashed in pieces at the top of all the streets: and they cast lots for her honorable men, and all her great men were bound in chains.

This is a record of what happened just fifty one years before Nahum recorded this event. However, it is still a type.

Nahum 3:11 Thou also shalt be drunken: thou shalt be hid, thou also shalt seek strength because of the enemy.

Nahum is telling us those living in the final days of this earth age, the ones that this prophecy is addressed to; that this is exactly what is going to happen to us living today.

Nahum 3:12  All thy strong holds shall be like fig trees with the first ripe figs: if they be shaken, they shall even fall into the mouth of the eater.

The fig tree generation is a soft tree, and when you shake it a little and the figs are over-ripe they fall and splat all over the place. It doesn't take much for a fig to fall from the tree when it is ripe, and that is how easy it is for the people to be deceived in these final days. It will be our Heavenly Father that will be seeing to the destruction, to all those that have no interest in preventing their deception.

Nahum 3:13  Behold, thy people in the midst of thee are women: the gates of thy land shall be set wide open unto thine enemies: the fire shall devour thy bars.

This is telling us in the Hebrew that our warriors are weak as women. when you study prophecy, you must listen close to what is written. God is the same yesterday as He is today, and as He will be tomorrow. God's prophecy is the same for all times. There are no new things to man under the sun, as Solomon wrote, "the things that happened before will be the things that will happen again". We are about to go into tomorrow here in the next verse.

Nahum 3:14  Draw thee waters for the siege, fortify thy strong holds: go into clay, and tread the morter, make strong the brickkiln.

Nahum 3:15 There shall the fire devour thee; the sword shall cut thee off, it shall eat thee up like the cankerworm: make thyself many as the cankerworm, make thyself many as the locusts.

When the cankerworm and the locusts are mentioned, those on the deeper level should have come alive with curiosity. If you have a cross reference Bible it will refer you to the book of Joel, the first chapter. There it discusses the four stages of the locust.

Joel 1:4 That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten; and that which the locust hath left hath the cankerworm eaten; and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpillar eaten.

In short, this is what it is saying; "the gnawer's remnant, the swarmers eat: the swarmers remnant, the devourer eats: the devourers remnant the consumer eats."

 This is the four stages of the locust, and it is the four stages also of Zionism. It is not of Christ, but of the false Christ..

 It is of Zionism and the kenites are the Zionists, the focus of this verse.

 The study of the Locust takes you from Joel to Revelation chapter nine.

Nahum 3:16 Thou hast multiplied thy merchants above the stars of heaven: the cankerworm spoileth, and flieth away.

This is going on today, it has come to pass.

Nahum 3:17 Thy crowned are as the locusts, and thy captains as the great grasshoppers, which camp in the hedges in the cold day, but when the sun ariseth they flee away, and their place is not known where they are.

This is saying that even our own royalty or leaders have become as the locust, they think and act like the locust.

 The grasshopper is also a locust.

You can see how our leaders act today, for they just sit there and wait for the things to happen, and then jump in after the fact to take advantage of the situation for themselves.

Then the sun of the truth hits their deeds they just take their legal route out and try to just run from the problems they have caused

If you know where these locusts of Kenites are today and how they work, and can see the evil deeds that they do, then you are one of the few. They do their deeds and works in the darkness of secrecy, and there are very few religious leaders today that even know that there is such a thing as a Kenite.
 They run their four hidden dynasties from the dark places of deception, yet they control the four hidden dynasties that virtually control the political one world system that runs the world today.

Their dynasties are politics, religion, economics, (banking, trade and commerce) and of course education.

Here at the American Wisdom Series our goal is to make you think about and question the wisdom of the current:
doctrine of many of our Christian churches, (The Man on a White Horse)
political direction of our country, (The Man on a Red Horse)
economic direction our country has taken, (The Man on a Black Horse)
 and teaching of our schools and media, (The Man on a Pale Horse)

The Four Hidden Dynasties of the New World Order Revelation 6:1-8
"The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse"
Did you know all four are being ridden by Satan?

Nahum 3:18 Thy shepherds slumber, O king of Assyria: thy nobles shall dwell in the dust: thy people is scattered upon the mountains, and no man gathereth them.

As well as these Kenites are recorded in God's Word, they have tried to delete the most important part of God's Word out of their studies. So what is stated here means absolutely nothing to most of those calling themselves Christians.

Your ministers are asleep [Thy shepherds slumber], how can the people learn anything sitting in the church houses today? The ministers don't even know who the Kenites are.

Remember from Isaiah 14, this Assyrian king is the type of the Antichrist. Those nobles that like to play around with the Kenites are going to die. The reason that our people today are being scattered in every direction and accepting the false religious beliefs of the heathen, is that we have no leaders (read preachers) who know or care to seek after the truths of God's prophets. So now we are going from the wound of the political system, to the wound of the leader. This is the final wound, when Christ shall return.

Nahum 3:19 There is no healing of thy bruise; thy wound is grievous: all that hear the bruit [report] of thee shall clap the hands over thee: for upon whom hath not thy wickedness passed continually?

So now we finally come to the deadly wound.

 What are the people going to clap their hands over when they see these Kenites and their system?

 They are going to clap their hands for joy, for they just don't know any better.

When God's people are destroyed and Christianity as a reality is gone from most all that call themselves Christians, the world is going to clap their hands for joy.

When you take a close look at the map concerning these nations of Egypt, Ethiopia, Put and Lubim, take a close look at their exact geographical location. The land was addressed in this chapter and not the people within the land.

Nineveh is on the Tigris river, which border the nations of Iran and Iraq. Nineveh is on the Iraq side of the river. For the past twenty years there has been bloody battles going on first between Iraq and Iran, and later between Iraq and the rest of the world systems armies. So remember this geographical location.

Now let's take a look at the map showing Egypt and northern Africa and the rest of these nations mentioned in Nahum. "Lubim" is what we call Libyans of today. It's leader (head of state) is called Colonel Muammar al-Qaddafi (under his military dictatorship since Sept 1, 1969) who is impatient and would like nothing better than to destroy all of God's people, and create a little wounding. In fact, the conflict that is on in Lebanon is directed from Libya. Tyre is no more, for it was destroyed in about the third century before Christ.

The Kenite armies of the Jews have destroyed the Zidon in their wars for land. In the Biblical maps the name "Hamath" shows exactly where the Kenites came from in for in 1st Chronicles we see that this is exactly the place where there the religious leaders that took over the priesthood and duties of the scribes came from, and that they were not of our brother Judah, nor of the seed of Abraham.

1 Chronicles 2:55 And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab.

Part 7

1 Chronicles 2:55 And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab.

Hemath is in the land of Lebanon, and these are the people who took over the duties of the keeping of the records, and the teaching of the laws of Moses.

Is it any wonder that they sought to murder Jesus from the very start of his ministry?

Jesus saw through their traditions of the devil, and he knew their heart, and the Kenites knew that Jesus teachings exposed their religious practices for the sham that it was.

This is one of the reasons that Jesus taught in parables, for it was not in the plan of God that they should know the truth from His Word.

So we see how important the identification of these geographical locations is, for it is from these locations that this wounding takes place. It is in the final generation, our generation that it comes to pass and these events are current events to us living today. For another important geographical location lets go to the book of Micah. The word "Micah" in the Hebrew means "Who is like YHVH".

Micah 1:1 The word of the LORD that came to Micah the Morasthite in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem.

When we read of another wounding, it is important to apply it to end-time prophecy.

 In Joel God told us that he would do nothing but what he would foretell the prophets ahead of time.

Here in Micah, we are going to be discussing Samaria and Jerusalem.

 "Samaria" in the Hebrew means "watch mountain", and we are supposed to be the watchmen of today.

However at the same time of this writing Samaria was noted for her great idolatry.

 There was an idol on every corner, and it was the height of degradation.

 Jerusalem was little better in her forms of idolatry.

 Here we are talking about the Philistines that live in this location.

Micah 1:2 Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is: and let the Lord GOD be witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple.

This address is stated for the ears of everyone on the face of the earth.

This is a message from God to all the people.

Micah 1:3 For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, and will come down, and tread upon the high places of the earth.

We will fix the geography in a moment but lets now fix the time of this event. When is the Lord coming to tread on the idolatry that is going on in the earth? Of course it is at the seventh and last trumpet. This has not happened yet. This book was written three hundred years after David's time, and we are now living in the two thousands and it still hasn't happened.

Micah 1:4 And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.

Have you ever seen the soil washed away at the breaking of a dam, or the overflowing of a large river?

Our Father is a consuming fire, and all the evil rudiments of this earth age will be washed away and consumed before the Lord at His coming.

What Micah is saying here is that all those sinners and all those that do not have ears to hear will fall apart like wax before a consuming fire. Spiritually they are going to melt.

So the time is fixed, it will be at the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Now we will look at the geographical location where this will take place. This is the reason that Jesus is coming back.

Micah 1:5 For the transgression of Jacob is all this, and for the sins of the house of Israel. What is the transgression of Jacob? is it not Samaria? and what are the high places of Judah? are they not Jerusalem?

When Jacob is spoken of in this way, it is the natural seed of Israel, all the tribes. Samaria was the idolatry capital of the world, and the high places of Judah is what is going on in Jerusalem. Stop and take a look at Jerusalem today, for the name of Christ is taken from it's people, and the only way Christ is allowed is for the sake of their tourist dollars. Is there a Christian church in every corner? Of course not for there is a law on the books of Jerusalem and all of Israel that forbids the passing of Christian writings to any Jew. There is a law to where a Christian cannot go into that land to convert the natives of Jewish Israel. It is against the law to teach Christianity to the young people of that nation.

Micah 1:6 Therefore I will make Samaria as an heap of the field, and as plantings of a vineyard: and I will pour down the stones thereof into the valley, and I will discover the foundations thereof.

God is telling us exactly what is in store for the Jews and their heathen nation of Israel. For their idolatry, He is going to turn all of Jerusalem and Judea upside-down. Remember what Jesus said " And Jesus said unto them, "See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you...You alone must make your own mind up as to which it will be. These are only the things and facts that we should be watching for, in the relationship of our waiting for this deadly wound., there shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down."

Many point to certain times of destruction in history as to this happening, however, there are still stones standing one on top of another in Jerusalem. This has not happened yet, but it will. The wailing wall in Jerusalem is one of the most popular spots on the earth to the Jew, for it is there reminder to them of how things once were. There were beautiful structures in their day, but at Christ's return they will be reduced to sand to the last brick. Sure "the foundation shall be discovered".

Micah 1:7 And all the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces, and all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire, and all the idols thereof will I lay desolate: for she gathered it of the hire of an harlot, and they shall return to the hire of an harlot.

This word "hires" in the Hebrew text means "the price of a harlot". The Syrian king is coming and he is going to take all the religious things and claim them for himself. Think, my friend, if the Antichrist is coming soon, he will claim all these things for himself. Most Christians simply do not know the difference between the true Christ and the fake, and they will gladly give over to the Assyrian king, which is Satan the Antichrist everything that he demands of them. They will fight to get Satan to be identified as one of his. This is why the rapture doctrine is so dangerous, for it is preparing Christians to flock to the false Christ in ignorance. Now read very closely this next verse.

Micah 1:8 Therefore I will wail and howl, I will go stripped and naked: I will make a wailing like the dragons, and mourning as the owls.

I am going to be greatly ashamed and make a wailing like the jackals. There will be great mourning.

Micah 1:9 For her wound is incurable; for it is come unto Judah; he is come unto the gate of my people, even to Jerusalem.

This Assyrian king, the dragon in the role of Antichrist has come all the way to the door of Judah. This is the wounding to the head and it shall take place in Jerusalem. So what follows them, concerning that wound is already there, and when you see armies surrounding Jerusalem, as warned in Luke 21, it is time to sharpen up, for the tribulation is very near. The end is upon you. So what are those armies? And where are they located? You see according to Luke 21, the deadly wound has not yet been issued. What is said next is very important to us, these are the events that are about to happen.

Part 8

Micah 1:10  Declare ye it not at Gath, weep ye not at all: in the house of Aphrah roll thyself in the dust.

It was at Gath that the Philistine giant that David slayed, came from. The wounding that took place by David is also the place that Micah is speaking of in relation to the wounding of the end times. That same head wound that claimed the head of Goliath will also claim the head of that political beast, the one world system. "Aphrah" correctly translated into English from the Hebrew means "dust house".

This town today is located in the area that we now call the Gaza strip.

Micah 1:11  Pass ye away, thou inhabitant of Saphir, having thy shame naked: the inhabitant of Zaanan came not forth in the mourning of Bethezel; he shall receive of you his standing.

"Saphir" in the Hebrew means "beauty town", "Zaanan" means "near", and "Beth-ezel" means "neighbor town". What this is saying in the Hebrew text is that there will not be standing room left in these towns. The prophet is saying that these beautiful towns will hang their head in shame when the world finds out what is happening in these towns today.

Micah 1:12  For the inhabitant of Maroth waited carefully for good: but evil came down from the LORD unto the gate of Jerusalem.

"Maroth" means "bitter town", so it is saying that bitter town waited for the good but instead the evil came upon her. This bitter town grieved for her bitterness, but nothing good came from it.

Micah 1:13 O thou inhabitant of Lachish, bind the chariot to the swift beast: she is the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion: for the transgressions of Israel were found in thee.

What this is saying, is that if you want to find the beginning of all the transgressions, take a good look at Samaria.

Micah 1:14  Therefore shalt thou give presents to Moreshethgath: the houses of Achzib shall be a lie to the kings of Israel.

It is important that we get the Hebrew on this or we just can't understand it. "Moreshethgath" is the possessor of the "wine-press".

The possessor of this wine press is a false liar that has misled the king of Israel.

 Since this is in the future for us today, it is something that shall happen or is now happening.

Micah 1:15 Yet will I bring an heir unto thee, O inhabitant of Mareshah: he shall come unto Adullam the glory of Israel.

This heir to the inhabitant of Mareshah is Satan, the false-christ.

Father, God, is promising that He is going to give an heir that will inherit all of this.

This heir follows the deadly wound to the one world political system, and the appearance of the spurious messiah, the false-christ.

 "Adullam" means "cave" and the warning to get into that cave.

Micah 1:16 Make thee bald, and poll thee for thy delicate children; enlarge thy baldness as the eagle; for they are gone into captivity from thee.

This command from God goes against the law of Israel given in
Deuteronomy 14:1, but this is part of the law of the heathen.

This lets us know that when this comes to pass, these laws of the heathen will also become accepted.

The beast that receives the first deadly wound is a political system.

 Israel is hated by the many nations of the Arabic world, and the reason that the land of the Philistines is so important today, which is the Gaza strip, it gives the Arabs, such as Libya a direct route into the heart of Israel and Jerusalem.

 Notice where the town of Adullum is located and you can see that it is not far from Jerusalem. This is why the deadly wound for Jerusalem would come through this route. The Jews know the importance of geographic locations, and this is why land is important to them.

This is where David's deadly wound to Goliath took place, and when King David was fleeing from the enemy he hid out in the caves of Adullam also for protection.

Remember that at the time of Christ's return, there will only be seven thousand of the elect that will know what is happening, and see Satan for the role of false-christ that he will play and claim to be.

 All the rest of the proclaiming Christian world will be deceived for a brief period of time.
This is not saying that they are going to hell, but that they will be deceived by Satan and his hoards.

 In the Millennium they will learn the truth, that God loves them and many will turn back to God.

They will learn to turn to the Word of
God for the truth, and stop listening to the fables of men.

 However, while still in their flesh bodies, they are just
enough that they will buy into Satan's lies.

This will happen very soon, when Satan comes in his role of the "instead of Christ".

At Satan's return it shall come to pass where it is written, "The Chief cornerstone shall become the stumbling block for many."

This all happens because they were not taught the truth from the entire Word in their Christian churches, but listened to the hirelings [preachers] tell them things to make them feel good all over; thereby, coming back Sunday after Sunday, sitting in that same pew and supporting that particular ministry, be it false and inapt.

 What little they know about Christianity will be the cause of their downfall.

We are to be alert and on the watch for both a military struggle, or threat; and a political struggle.

Stop and think for a moment, those things that are going on in the middle east are not military struggles but they are religious struggles.

Each time Israel and the Arab nations make their moves against each other, it is for religious purposes, and at the root of their problems are religious claims to the land. The Islamic people want their homes back, while the Israelites lay claim to the same land.

 It may technically
be about politics, but in most cases religion is behind it.

The theme in the Arabic world has been
, "Let us put our differences aside for the moment and destroy the Israelites."

This is why the plea from the Arab leaders to their armies is to die honorable for their cause when they fight the Israeli army.

The Israeli people know that they are not the true Israel, so they call themselves Israeli.

True Israel are the ten tribes that made up the ancient northern kingdom
 "House of Israel", and the Israelis of today know that they are only a part of the two tribes that made up the ancient southern kingdom "House of Judah".

It is only in ignorance that Christians of America have put the name "Israel" on them.

Israelites is a term which refers to the whole house of Jacob, or Israel that includes all the tribes before the split took place - splitting them into two nations.

Israelis is the term used by the mixed group of the people who, in part are from the ancient "House of Judah" mixed with Kenites, who today make up that little country in the middle east.

Editor's note: For a clearer understanding Remember as you read this study, or any place in the Bible;

#1. When the talk is about the ancient "House of Israel", it is the ten tribes of Israelites who made up that northern kingdom house or nation and have since their dispersement by Assyria in 745-721 B.C., migrated on to the west and have become the Christian nations of our 21st. century.

#2. When the talk is about the ancient "House of Judah", it is the two tribes of Israelites, Judah and Benjamin, who made up that southern kingdom house or nation and have since, after mixing with the Kenites, i.e. descendants of Cain during their Babylonian captivity in 586 B.C., become the Jewish peoples of our 21st. century, now calling themselves, not Israelites but Israelis, many of whom in 1948 moved back to the middle east and with the help of England organized into the new country called Israel today, which was then recognized by the United States and three days later Russia, 

The lie, in verse 14 above, could come from Lebanon, which it has before and filter down to cause the deadly wound.

The moment that Iran marches toward Israel, American troops will be landed in that area for Israeli defense. We saw what happened in Kuwait, when the entire world came to the defense of that region's stability, however, the next conflict will not be as that was.
The Russians know what is happening, and they are even coming to the defense of the Arabs for the sake of keeping that part of the world from exploding into major conflict.

Peace treaties have been going on for many years, however they are working only to the degree of extending this time of artificial peace.

But, when they come to an end, the deadly wound will take place, and the one world political system will come to an end.

 It will be at this time that Satan the false-christ [the instead-of-Christ], in all of his gallantry will perform his miracles in the sight of men on the face of the earth, and Satan will heal that deadly wound to the one world political system.

Satan will return and state that he is Christ, the anointed Messiah of God, and most proclaiming Christians will believe him.

To the Buddhists he will claim to be Buddha, and to those of the Islamic faith he will claim to be their God.

In every case he will claim to be the Almighty and the world will worship him, believing him to be so

Satan will claim to be whatever you want him to be for that is the true name of God.

Exodus 3:14  And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

In the Hebrew God's Holy name is " `ehyeh `asher `ehyeh".

 Satan will call himself that, and all people will rush to be by his side.

The super-preachers will fight to have their place at Satan's side for they will do this in ignorance.

 All because Satan is able to do a few tricks and miracles before their eyes.

This was written long ago but the church world has chosen to turn their back on the warnings from God's Word, and because of this, the things that they think the true Messiah will do, they have become blind to the fact that Satan will do them also.

When the church world of today turned their backs to the Minor Prophets, and the book of Revelation, and created fairy tales and worked them into their denominational traditions they completely disarmed their proclaiming Christian membership, and opened them up to believe the spiritual warfare that Satan will bring upon the earth.

Remember what happened when Goliath stood on that hillside and looked down on the Israelites army.

 The entire army shook, yet one little fellow called David would not have His heavenly Father scorned and made a stand.

 God gave the victory to his chosen lad, and the enemies fled.

 When you know how the end is coming and going to do, it is not challenge one of God's elect.

God's very best will face the enemy, and the enemy will fall.

 The entire plan of God is laid out for those that desire to read and be informed.

When the spurious messiah, Satan, as the false-christ appears, if you are one of the elect, you will be one lonely soul, with the false-christ standing on that ridge in Jerusalem, and claiming himself to be Jesus Christ.

 Don't be afraid when this time comes, for it will be shortly come, but remember the words of David when he faced the giant of his day. "You come in the name of your armor, but I come in the name of the Lord God of Israel"

1 Samuel 17:45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

This is why Jesus told us not to premeditate what we shall say beforehand when you are delivered up before the "abomination", the beast which is Satan and his religious system. Don't be afraid but be like little David was before that ugly giant. David was anxious to get the job done and rid of Goliath.
You have to step forward and then He will feed the information into your mouth and give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist".
When the world hears what is said from your mouth, no one has a word to say against you.

There is a time coming when there will be a great division in Christianity, and unfortunately the majority will go the wrong way.

This has nothing to do with those loved ones that have already gone to be with the Lord, for when they believed in Jesus, their souls were saved.

It is these proclaiming Christians now living in the end of this earth age; I believe they are made up of the one third that were deceived in the first earth age, who will be tried and well tested again, to see if they will make a stand, this time, for the true Jesus Christ, which they did not in the first earth age.

 They were deceived by Satan then, and they will be deceived by Satan again, at the sounding of the sixth trumpet, if they have not this time, read their Bibles and rightly divided the "Word of Truth" and don't now have the seal of God in their foreheads.

Those proclaiming Christians who just don't care enough about God's Word to prepare for the spiritual warfare ahead, but like the ostrich, run to hide their head in the sands of traditions and fairy-tale thinking, promoted in their church houses, thinking that their fables will save them in the end.

When you see what is being taught in the world's church houses today, and you see the stupidity that is being accepted which goes directly against God's Word, it causes one to wonder why they are so stupid as to rely on such fairy-tales

The Millennium age is a time when all souls that have failed at Satan's coming will have the opportunity to see what they have done.

There will be many shepherds, ministers that lead their entire flock of Christians to the wrong Jesus, and to what they believe to be God's chosen people, only later to find out that they are actually of their father the devil.

You would think that just because the Jews do not allow the name of Jesus Christ to be taught in their land, you could have enough reason and common sense to know they are not of God, but the devil.

God the Father himself said that His Son was the only way, the Truth and the Life, and that He would only allow man to approach His throne through Jesus.

 The so called Bible scholars of today claim all sorts of things about both Satan and Christ, and they have reversed the roles of the two, to where our children think of God as the destroyer, and Satan as the one in the light.

 Satan was the most beautiful of the angels when created, and he will be just as beautiful and believable when he returns to the earth to deceive the world.

We are living in the generation that must make sure that we know what we are doing and saying.

 It is time to get deep into all of God's Word and get to know the events of our day, and what to expect.

God laid out a plan, and the world events are following that plan to the letter.

God has put that plan into your hands and mine, and it is called the Bible. It is time to get a Companion Bible, keyed to the Massoretic notes, and a Strong's Concordance that is numbered to the Hebrew, Chaldee, and Greek dictionaries, and learn to dig out the truth for yourself, for it is not being taught at the pulpits of our nation today

The Spirit of God will open your eyes when you ask the Father in Jesus name to give you wisdom of the truths of His Word.

The tribulation is nothing to fear when you know the truths of what is to happen and the promises that God has made to you, as one of His elect.

 God will see you through just as He did Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego in the fiery furnace of Daniel's day.

 What we have studied here in this study should only be a start to your
