The Apocalyptic Globalist “Sea Beast” and
the Islamic “Earth Beast” of Revelation
Daniel's Vision of the Ram and the He-Goat
By Robert Mock MD
With the fall of the second empire of Babylon was also the foundation for the rise of the third. As Saddam’s elite Republican Guard units laid down their arms as the western coalition forces under the banner of President Bush’s United States into Baghdad, so began the transition from an independent yet intransient despot to the final rearrangement of the Middle Eastern nations, tribes and peoples under a unified one world governance before the coming of the theocratic Torah based messianic kingdom of Yahshua (Jesus).
Here we see the rise of the first Apocalyptic Sea Beast of Revelation 13 that came out of the Jewish messianic roots of Sabbatai Zevi on June 18, 1666 (06 / 6+6+6 / 1000+666). The followers of Jacob Frank, the disciple of Sabbatai Zevi, who called themselves Frankists, soon joined forces messianic Islam as found in the modern Dolmeh Society and allied themselves with the Catholic Jesuits of the German based Illuminati. With the funding of the House of Rothschild out of Frankfurt , Germany, they soon imbedded themselves into Scottish Masonry. Out of this demonic consortium arose the French and then the American Revolutions.
Yet there would be another beast, the second Apocalyptic Earth Beast of Revelation 13, which would arise from the desert or wilderness. Long thought to be the Lamb like beast of America by Christian prophetic scholars, we find a new understanding as the Islamic scholars give us a new perspective from the hadiths (sayings) of the Prophet Muhammad. To the global power of the Islamic nations, the Earth Beast will “arise out of Mecca”, be associated with the “sealing of their believers” as in the “Mark of the Beast”, will reveal himself in a time of great calamities when the sun arises in the western sky and will drive the Islamic people “north by a great fire” to the “place of their assembly” for the “last judgment of Islam.” Out of Islam with come the “earth beast”.
The Fall of Baghdad and the Rise of the First Apocalyptic Sea Beast of Revelation
On this day, April 9, 2003, when the capital of Iraq at Baghdad fell and the war was declared completed by the globalist’s forces from the west on May 1, 2003, the world bowed to the emerging reality. A beast that arose out of the midst of many peoples almost three hundred fifty years ago was now maturing. It was coming into its own as the final global force as represented by the “Sea Beast” in the ancient of the Book (Sefer) of Revelation.
Revelation 13:1-4 – “Then I stood on the sand of the sea, and I saw a beast
rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his
horns ten crowns, and on his head a blasphemous name.
Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard (Germany), his feet were like the feet of a bear (the Black Bear of Russia), and his mouth the mouth of a lion (the Lion of Great Britain) and the dragon (The eastern Dragon of Red China) gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.”
Understand this apocalyptic “sea” beast was seen in vision and his image was shown to the Apostle John in vision as he stood high above this planet, like in a circling space station. As this emissary (Apostle) of Yahshua (Jesus) described this vision, he was looking down over the great expanse of the European-Asian landscape. A long and lengthy-leopard like beast arose whose front torso was centered over the heart of the Germanic tribes of central Europe. His head and mouth were on the western coastline of the British Isles, his frontal paws were located down into the European and Middle Eastern arena of the Czech Republics and Iran and his rear paws were located to the rear in India and Indo-China (Viet-Nam and Cambodia). We find his rump and tail in the eastern regions of the Republic of China while his back and hind parts across the vast expanses of Russian Siberia.
Here this emerging apocalyptic beast rising out of the sea of Revelation 13 was a global power, yet there was something vastly different. This global power was a blend of Edom, the ancient occidental Greco-Roman Empire that stretched from the British Isles, the heart of the continent of Europe along the peri-Mediterranean rim to the Middle East. It then spread over the entire expanse of the ancient Mongolian Empire (Magog) that stretched from the western heart of Eastern Europe and the region of the Golden Horde Kipchak Khanate in Russia to the Mongolian khanate in Indo-China in the East; the land of the Kublai Khan in China and Indonesia. There was a third leg that arose from the back, rump and tail that were in the regions of the Central Mongolian Empire in Siberia. This third axis of the ancient Mongolian Empire was the paws in ancient Persia as the Ill-Khanate in the Middle East
This beast that arose from the sea in the Sefer (Book) of Revelation was not the He-Goat with a great horn nor was it the Ram with two great horns. Rather it appears to be an amalgamation of these two apocalyptic animals the Prophet Daniel saw looking north from the River Ulai. The Sea Beast of Revelation appears to be something greater or more prophetically advanced. Was this “Sea Beast” to be the next generation apostate globalist force? Was this “sea beast” one of the final global forces on this planet before the coming of the messiah? What then are these forces? Let us re-look first at the globalist forces that were swirling around the globe in the seventeenth century that created what many feel will be the final global force on this planet earth: the Jesuit Illuminate, the Jewish economic powerhouse of the Rothschild Banking Dynasty, the Scottish Masonry and the Sabbatean Jewish-Islamic alliance of the Dolmeh messianic cult that arose from Sabbatai Zevi, the last false messiah of Judaism.
On August 2004, BibleSearchers Reflections posted an article titled, “The Sabbatean Jews and their Affect on Global Politics.” In a sub-titled section called, “Shabbatai Zevi, the Messiah of the Jews” and “Nathan of Gaza, Prophet of the Holy Light” we read:
Barry Chamish, a Jewish investigative reporter, wrote two insightful investigative reports centering on the writings of Rabbi Antelman, The Deutsch Devils and Kerry, Gaza and the New Sabbatean Holocaust.
BibleSearchers Reflections – “It all began in the 1600’s where a Turkish born Jewish mystic, Shabbatai Zevi (1626-1676) was born in ancient Smyrna, Turkey (modern-day Izmir) on the Shabbat (Jewish Seventh-day Sabbath) on the 9th of Av, 1626 and whence his name, Shabbatai. This day, 9th of Av, on its own is a day of infamy and a date of triple tragedies. The destruction of the temple of Solomon, temple of Herod and the Bar Kokhba’s Betar fortress all were destroyed on this day. Yet in some Jewish traditions, the 9th of Av will be the day of the birth of the coming Maschiach (Messiah)…
On the 15th day of Sivan, June 18, 1666 (6 / 6+6+6 / 1000 + 666), Shabbatai Zevi formally announced that the Moschiach of Israel would be revealed and named this year (1666) as the year of Redemption or the year of the promised Messiah. His support in the Jewish population spread rapidly across Palestine and the Diaspora when almost the entire Jewry accepted him not as a prophet or teacher but the “promised one” or the “anointed one” and the living incarnation of God. In the history of Judaism, it was the only messianic movement to sweep all Jews from the western isles of Britain to the ancient lands of Persia, from the heartland of Germany to the northern African nation of Morocco, and from the Nation of Poland to the Yemen coast. The date never came.”
The Age of the Final Deception had finally come. This deception would have appearances that were not. It would appear good when it was actually evil. It would seek to represent itself as the guardian of the Holy Word when it was anti-Torah and against the real historical Jesus who was a Jewish Messiah. It took the Jewish followers of its messianic idealism and transformed them into the influence of apostate Christianity. The followers of Jacob Frank, the disciple of Sabbatai Zevi, who called themselves Frankists, soon joined forces messianic Islam as found in the modern Dolmeh Society and allied themselves with the Catholic Jesuits of the German based Illuminati. With the funding of the House of Rothschild out of Frankfurt, Germany, they imbedded themselves into Scottish Masonry.
As Barry Chamish wrote in the sub-section “Jacob Frank and the Jewish Alliance with the Illuminati and the Rothschilds” we read:
Barry Chamish – “Frankfurt at the time was the headquarters of the Jesuit, Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Illuminati, as well as Rothschild Brothers’ financial empire. This is worth repeating; Frankfurt was the birthplace of both the Illuminati and the Rothschild Empire. When Jacob Frank entered the city, the alliance between the two had already begun. Weishaupt provided the conspiratorial resources of the Jesuit Order, while the Rothschilds contributed the money. What was missing was a means to spread the agenda of the Illuminati and the Frankists added with their network of agents throughout the Christian and Islamic worlds.” (Barry Chamish, Kerry, Gaza and the New Sabbatean Holocaust, pg 2)
Let us continue with this search in the sub-title section called “The Geo-Political and Religious Influence of the Shabbateans and the Frankists” we continue to read and understand about the “Beast of the Sea” of Revelation 13.
BibleSearchers Reflections – “It was Rabbi Antelman in his seminal study showed that from the loins of the Illuminati Shabbataists, the Reign of Terror and the French Rebellion and the American Masonic Rebellion against Britain sprouted. Yes, all the founders of the young republic of American were members of the Scottish Masonic lodges.
From the loins of the Illuminati and the Shabbateans, the Jews, Karl Marx and Frederick Engel established the roots of communism. From the loins of the Rothschild Frankists Sabbataeans, John Jowe Astor and Jacob Schiff went to America, enlisted the support of the robber barons of America, Rockefeller and J.P. Morgan, and established the roots of globalism in the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). The goal of the CFR according to Chamish is “to overthrow the American Constitution and switch the nation’s diplomacy to Illuminates.”
The thread of political and moral corruption continued this time in the heart of German Jews in the 1830s. The Jewish Enlightenment was initiated by German Jewish author Moses Mendelssohn, ancestor of the German composer, Felix Mendelssohn. The movements of the Reform and Conservative Judaism were to bring ecumenical anti-Torah ideas of Christian Frankists into orthodox Judaism. The goal was to dilute the morality of Torah-observant Jews. The Jews who did not comply were quietly removed and disappeared.
Yet also from the loins of the messianic movement in Judaism in the 1640-1690s became the root of similar movements in the Christian world. The father of Pietism, Philipp Jakob Spener, no doubt of Jewish blood was called to be the senior minister at Frankfurt am Main in 1666, the same year that Shabbatai Zevi announced to be the year of the Moschiach. Spener’s calls for reform and a return to spiritual piety soon earned him the title of ‘spiritual counselor of all Germany’. In 1667 he instituted the Collegia pietatis, called the “pious assembly” to study the application of spiritual truths to everyday life. Here in the same city that the Illuminati, the Frankists and the Rothschilds were formulating their ideals of global dominance, the pietist (holiness) movement also began as a movement of spiritual pietism in the midst of Christian institutionalism. (Pietism)
The year that Philipp Jakob Spener left Frankfurt for Dresden in 1686, Jacob Frank moved to the Frankfurt suburb of Offenbach. There in Dresden, Spener met with his successor in the Pietist movement, August Hermann Francke. Together they founded University of Halle where Pietism was put into action as Protestantism’s most active evangelistic center in Europe.
The influences of the pietists were early felt in the Moravian community of German Lutheranism. Spener’s son, Count Nikolas von Zinzendorf became the head of the renewed Moravian Church and the revival of the Bohemian Unity of the Brethren. It was on a trip from Georgia with a company of Bohemian Moravians on a voyage in which his ship was nearing capsizing at sea, John Wesley (1703 – 1791), the 15th child of a non-conformist minister observed the faith and piety of the Moravians and with his conversion to the spiritual application of the kingdom of God on this earth, he opened the greatest era of revivalism in England, the Wesleyan Movement that became the future Methodist Church.
In the 1600s, the New England Puritan Cotton Mather (1663-1728), a correspondent of August Franke, sought to bring spiritual piety to the worship of New Englanders before the Revolution. After Mather’s death, the first of two American Great Awakenings began in the 1730’s to the 1740’s. The ministry of Baal Shem Tov (1700-1760) brought Hasidic revivalism into Judaism and moved outside of orthodox ritual to a pietistic communion with God.
On the heels of the French and the American Revolution, the piety movements began to lay their historical roots in literal scriptural interpretation. Out of the first American Great Awakening, Methodist revivalism, the Piety and Moravian Movement of the 18th century, the foundation was laid for the beginning of the era of anticipation of the literal and physical return of the Maschiach (Messiah). The Jews were looking for the return of the Maschiach ben David and the return to the Land as foretold by their ancient prophets. The Protestants in the Great Awakening were looking for the return of the Jewish messiah, Yahshua ben Yosef ben David (Jesus son of Joseph son of David) who claimed the He was the son of His Father, the Eternal One of Israel.”
When we look into the apocalyptic and prophet vision of the ancient seers of the Divine, we see today that we all are a part of a massive deception that moves all of our eyes towards the reliance on political, religious and social institutional earthly powers rather than the Almighty One of Israel. It was the Almighty One who gave the Israelites and Jews the Pathway of Torah and it was the Almighty One who sent His Son, Yahshua, who gave the Gentiles the Pathway of Righteousness.
The Final Great Global Power in the Sea Beast of Revelation 13 arose from the midst of the waters, as arising from the midst of many peoples. Its headquarters were centered in the heart of Europe at Frankfurt, Germany. Is it any wonder that we also call this “beast” the “Leopard-like Beast”. Within its apocalyptic imagery we see the amalgamation of the ancient empires of Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece and Rome.
Like the apocalyptic imagery of the Great Ram with Two Horns and the He-Goat with a Great Horn in Daniel 8, we also see the covert, psychological and military battles for world dominance by the eastern oriental globalists of the Red Internationale and the western occidental globalists of the Golden Internationale. The Great Ram with Two Horns is the Red atheistic Leninist Communist partners of Russia and China in the global power of the Red Internationale as envisioned by the late Pope John Paul II. The He-Goat with the Great Horn is the Golden Internationale of the globalists, internationalists and Transnationalists centered upon the Continental powers of the Roman based European Union (Edom) fronted by the undisputed military aerial power of the United States and the greatest modern purveyor of Grecian democracy today.
These were not just geo-political musings by Pope John Paul II and his mentor, Cardinal Wyszynski of Poland, but rather strategic concepts of global domination. They knew that the power of the Roman Catholic Church was to be a global contender for world domination. This global or “catholic” church was to them the “Black Internationale” that was to be the ultimate victor in any contention with its rivals.”
As BibleSearchers Reflections noted in the subtitle article, “Pope John Paul II and the Golden Internationales: Transnationists and the Western Internationalists,” it made these observations:
BibleSearchers Reflections – “To the north and west of the Vatican, John Paul saw a different vision. The champions of Western capitalism and democracy were built around the architectural foundation of a different new world order founded on the pillars of money and technology. The Transnationalists and Internationalists of America and Europe saw a new world empire based on power, greed and control but by exploiting democratic capitalism and democratic egalitarianism to the fullest, the foundation of the nation-state capitalism would evolve naturally to a planetary system of global regulation…
Yet as John Paul was laying a strategy towards the new millennium, he was not intent on accepting the continuous dualism of opposing ideologies on the political sphere. He designed to move around the Soviet Party-State complex and set up alliances and ties with the Russian Orthodox and Eastern Orthodox Churches. He quickly visited the patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church in Istanbul and fostered strategic ties with the Eastern European Roman Catholics and Russian Orthodox communities. When the political barriers of the Soviet state crumbled, a majority of mainstream Orthodox Churches were prepared to enter the fold of the Roman Catholic Church by vote and accession of their church property to the Vatican. Understand though this was not as much a religious strategy as a geopolitical strategy.
Whereas the Western globalists under the mantle of Reagan’s push to topple the ‘evil empire’ of the Soviets, the Solidarity experimentation in Poland and the bid to unify the Orthodox communities behind the Iron Curtain had probably more impact. In turn John Paul began to turn his attention to the progressive materialist, anti-God, anti-Church identity of the Western capitalist and globalists. Crisscrossing the world, from one country to another he kept his international profile highly visible, his spiritual frame of reference current among world political leaders and after a hundred years of political isolation of the Roman Catholic Church, even the United States with highly visible and respected President Ronald Reagan reestablished diplomatic relations with the Vatican, the “American Concordat” with Rome.”
When we look at the global idealism of the President of the United States in 2006, we ask, whom does he serve? Does he serve the “God” of Roman apostate Christianity who is anti-Torah where the “Laws of Moses (Torah) have been done away and we now live under “Grace.” Was this not the “catholic” or global religious institution that transformed with the Emperor Constantine the “Jewish monotheistic God of Israel” into the tri-partite “God of Christianity?”
Does the President of the United States serve the “God” of the Jews who are living under the covenant of Torah who still refuse to believe that the God of Israel did send His Son as His emissary in fulfillment of the Jewish prophets of old to bring the “Good News” of salvation for all men, not just for the Jews alone. Does he believe like the Jewish faithful that refuse to accept that Yahshua was their own “son” and represented the God of their forefathers. Does he believe like most orthodox Jews that refuse to believe that Yahshua began the Jewish mission of Gentile evangelism under the Noahide Laws of the ancient Hebrews by members of the School of Hillel so that all men would be brought into a life of Torah?
Does the President of the United States believe in the monotheistic “God” of Islamic Allah, a subsect of Nazorean Christianity in western Arabia that believe in the prophetic mission of Yahshua (Jesus) but not His divine mission. Does he believe like the Islamic faithful in the messianic return of “Isis ben Mariyam (Jesus son of Mary)” as the Messiah to Islam but not as the Messiah of the Hebrew Jews and Christians?
Does the President of the United States believe that he was “born again” when he arose from the tomb of Yale’s Skull and Bones in a satanic ritualistic “new birth” experience? Does he serve the Lord of the “tomb of the Skull and Bones or the Lord of the Tomb of Resurrection? Has he willingly taken on the characture of “Gog from the Land of Magog” as Saddam Hussein took on the characture of King Nebuchadnezzar from Babylon? Does he follow his grandfather, Preston Bush’s idealism that stealing the skull of Geronimo from Fort Sill, Oklahoma to place in “The Tomb” at Yale, gave him secret power over the American Indians from the ancient land of Magog? Does this deserve for him and his descendants the ritualistic name of “Magog?” Does he align himself with the CIA interests of his father, the 41st President of the United States whom some insiders claim is subservient to the international intelligence arm of Jesuit Catholicism?
We all sit so smugly in our self-perpetuating ideals of messianic glory forgetting that we are to “watch” and to “wait.” Are we no longer careful because we fail to heed the warning that our “watching and waiting” might be long, tiring and downright scary? We thought we wanted to “know” but now are not sure if we do. Yet at the time of the end, the “chosen ones” or the “remnant” of the Lord will have to understand that the fullness of goodness that flows from the throne of the God of Israel and the fullness of evil that comes from the Luciferian forces of hell and darkness will both be revealed in their fullest transparency. Are you ready to “endure unto the end?”
The Fall of Baghdad and the Rise of the Second Apocalyptic “Earth” Beast of Revelation
If, as these studies will suggest, that the United States is truly to be identified with the globalist powers at the time of the end as the “Great Horn” on the He-Goat of Daniel 8, we wonder what happens after this epic battle in which the He-Goat was moved with rage against the Ram and broke his two horns? As the Biblical text affirms, “There was no power in the ram to withstand him (He-Goat), but he cast him (Ram) down to the ground and trampled him (Ram).”
In Revelation 13, during the same era at the time of the end there arose “out of the land,” another beast-like globalist power. The apocalyptic image of the “earth” denotes in prophetic language as a place where there were few people as in a wilderness or a desert. It was to come as a global force reputed to be peaceful as a lamb, yet it grew up speaking like a dragon. Many Christian commentators see this global power as the United States of America that arose in the wilderness of the American continent and will become a globalist power at the end of the age.
Revelation 13:11-18 (parts) – “Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
He performs great signs…he deceives those who dwell on the earth…he was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast. He causes all…to receive a mark…the name of the beast or the number of his name.”
The question that must be asked, if the United States is identified as the Great Horn on the He-Goat of Daniel 8 and the He-Goat is identified with the Sea-Beast of Revelation, then who is the Earth (Lamb-like) Beast of Revelation 13?
With the rise of Islam as a global force that is seeking to topple “Satan” as America and the “Little Satan” as the Nation of Israel, maybe it is time we relook at the role of Islam at the time of the end. According to the “faithful” of Allah, there also will be the rise of an “earth beast” power at the time of the end. Is this the same “earth beast of Revelation? Let us now explore the Qur’an and the hadiths or “sayings” of the Prophet Muhammad.
In a fascinating article titled “Major Signs before the Day of Judgment,” written by Shaykh Ahmad Ali with the Al Ma’hadul Islami Academy in Britain, we find that the “Beast of the Earth” is one of the major signs of the time of the end (Qiyamah.) In the Qur’an, Surah an-Naml in the Qur’an quotes Allah:
Surah An-Naml (The Ants) – "And when the word is fulfilled concerning them. We shall bring forth a Beast of the Earth to speak unto them because mankind had no faith in our revelation (Islam)."
Understanding that the Islamic faith uses the writings of both the Jewish Old Testament (TaNaKh) and the Jewish Nazarene/Christian New Testament (Brit Hadassah) and adapts them to its prophetic vision, the Book of Revelation will play an important role in the apocalypse of the Islamic faith.
Abdullah b-Umar, the Habbari ruler of Sind quotes from one of the sayings of the Prophet:
Abdullah-b-Umar – "I memorised a hadith from the Messenger of Allah which I have not forgotten. I heard the Messenger of Allah saying, 'The first of the signs that will come is the rising of the sun from the place of its setting and the emergence of the Beast upon the people. Whichever of these two occurs before the other then the other is right behind it."
According to the reputed Muslim scholar of the Qur’an and the hadiths, Tafseer-e-ibne Kathir:
Tafseer-e-ibne Kathir – “The beast will appear very near the end of time. When disintegration, corruption, kufr (disbelief) and evil prevail, commands of Allah are ignored, the Deen (Islam) changed and made a mockery of, it is then Allah will take out the Beast from the earth.”
It was Imam Hakim (Mowlana al-Hakim bi-Amrillah), the 16th Imam and the 6th Fatimid Caliph (386-411 AH (after hagirah), who is quoted by Fathul-Bari on the Imam’s comments on the above saying from the Prophet Muhammad stated:
Imam Hakim (Mowlana al-Hakim bi-Amrillah) - “The rising of the sun from the west will take place before the emergence of the Beast. The Beast will appear on the same day the sun has risen from the west or very soon thereafter.
Ibne Hajar after quoting Imam Hakim mentions, "The wisdom in the Beast appearing after the sun has risen from the west is that the door of repentance will close at the time the sun rises from the west. Thus the Beast will emerge to distinguish the believers from the non-believers completing the aim of closing the door of repentance."
Let us look at this moment of time. The first reaction is one of incredulous skepticism. How can the sun rise from the western sky? In March, 2001, BibleSearchers Reflections posted the last of its commentary series on the prophecies of Zechariah as interpreted as a literal time of the end prophecy. In the article titled, “Zechariah 14 – “I will gather all Nations to Battle at Jerusalem,” in the subsection, “The Coming of the Messiah” it quotes,
Zechariah 14:6-7 – “It shall come to pass in that day that there will be no light; the lights will diminish. It shall be one day, which is known to the Lord - Neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light.
BibleSearchers Reflections – “This is in sequel to ‘no man knoweth the day nor the hour when the Son of Man cometh.’ To state that it is ‘neither day nor night’ also suggests a cataclysmic event such as complete standstill of the earth’s polar rotation. The New Testament suggestion that the coming of the messiah will be ‘as a thief in the night’ not only suggests an element of surprise, but a time of absence of light.
Sit and think about this passage a moment. We are again in Jerusalem as this city is the center of focus of all prophetic studies. The Day of the Lord has come. It is one literal day in human time, yet it is known only to the Lord of hosts. But what does it mean when it says, ‘it is neither day nor night?’ To all humans a day has a certain and anticipated cycle. To the Jew, it is night then day. To the western world it is day then night. Yet this day will confound all the inhabitants of the earth. For some the sun will rise yet before it sets, the sun moves backwards over the sky. For others, the sun will set and when sunrise is anticipated, it will never come. As to assure that the meaning is clear, then the prophet Zechariah writes: “But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light.”
So as the inhabitants are anticipating and awaiting the setting of the sun, suddenly the brightness of the sky is intensified. The stellar observer will notice that the sun instead of setting is now arising in the sky but it is reversing its order. North has now become south and the forces that were holding the continental plates jammed against each other were now reversed.
The cosmic energy that will precede the coming of Yahshua will contrast with darkness (spiritual and physical) and then ‘it will be light’. This is a good illustration of how the scripture combines literal/physical with spiritual/symbolic/allegorical meaning.”
It was Maggid ben Yosef who commented on this text:
Maggid ben Yosef – “A day “known to Hashem” is an idiom for a day that is kept secret from man. For it to be suddenly “light” at evening time (in Jerusalem) means that the earth flips over which will result in polar changes that can actually re-route existing rivers and seas, thus the verse below:
Zechariah 14:8 – And in that day it shall be that living water shall flow from Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea (Dead Sea),
and half of them toward the western sea (Mediterranean Sea); in both summer and winter it shall occur.”
In this context, the rising of the sun in the west and the emergence of the “earth beast” is also to coincide with the “close of probation” or the “sealing of the saints” by the Lord of hosts that is associated with the sixth seal of Revelation, the ascent of the “sealing angel” of Hashem (the God of Israel). Let us look at some of these similarities.
According to Ibne Hajar Asqalani (Abu-‘l-Fadl Ahmad ibn Hajar) (1372-1449), a medieval Sunni Islamic scholar quoted by Fathul Bari, there will be cosmic disturbances that will be associated with the arrival of the Great Tribulation and the arrival of the Seven Trumpet or Vial Plague Seals in Revelation.
Ibne Hajar after quoting Imam Hakim mentions - "The wisdom in the Beast appearing after the sun has risen from the west is that the door of repentance will close at the time the sun rises from the west. Thus the Beast will emerge to distinguish the believers from the non-believers completing the aim of closing the door of repentance."
This is a curious deviation from the message of Revelation. According to Revelation 13, the “earth beast” will be the driving force that “exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs…he deceives those who dwell on the earth…he was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast. He causes all…to receive a mark…the name of the beast or the number of his name.”
It was Yahshua who stated to his disciples that at the time of the end the “sheep and the goats” would be separated. Yet, it was the “angel of the Lord” and not the “earth beast” whose role was to differentiate the difference between the believers and the non-believers of the God of Israel and set His seal on their “foreheads.”
The question we ask, are the Islamic scholars assigning the role of the “earth beast” to be the sealer, yet who is the “earth beast” sealing, the saints or those sealed with the Mark of the Beast?
According to Abu Huraira-Musnad Ahmad/Tirmidhi, the role of the “earth beast” will be to “seal” the fate or destiny of the Muslim believers in a very special way, as follows:
Abu Huraira-Musnad Ahmad/Tirmidhi – “The task of the Beast will be to distinguish the believers from the non-believers, with Prophet Moosa's staff it will draw a line on the forehead of every believer whereby his face will become bright and luminous and with the ring of Sulaman (Solomon) it will seal the nose of every non-believer where by his whole face will become black. Thus there will be complete distinction between the Muslim and non-Muslim, so that if many parties sit at a dinner table, the Muslim and non-Muslim will be distinguished.
The Islamic understanding of the “earth beast” carries great similarities with Revelations “earth beast” as follows:
Revelation 13:16–18 – “He (the “earth beast”) causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark of the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”
According to the Islamic scholars, the “earth beast” will “seal” or “separate the believers from the non-believers.” According to Revelation, the believers will be those who love YHWH, the God of Israel. According to the Islamic scholars, the “believers” will be those that love Allah, the god of Ishmael.
It will be the task of the Islamic “earth beast: to “draw a line on the forehead of every believer” with the reputed rod of Moses, where the “earth beast of Revelation” will cause all inhabitants to “receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads.”
Revelation 13:13-14 – “He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who sell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.”
Can you imagine what it will be like if you are led in the presence of someone who is to seal your fate as to whether you live or die? Most of us, as a believer of the God of Israel or His son Yahshua, will wish that we will be surrounded with the glory of the presence of the Almighty One. What if you were “sealed” by which a number suddenly and mysteriously appeared on your forehead? Would your face suddenly become luminous as the face of one of the glorious saints of old? Would you wonder, by whom was I sealed?
Yet what if you suddenly find that you have been “marked” yet you not only feel dark, but your face turns dark, how will that affect you as your world descends into chaos during the time of trouble? In the world totally possessed by demonic spirits, the feelings will envelop your mind just as Jesus’ did in the Garden of Gethsemane. There He was surrounded by the forces of evil. He was separated from the presence of His Father.
So also will the lives of the “chosen ones” who will walk through the “Valley of the Shadow of Death.” They will not be able to depend upon any feelings, only the faith that they have walk and talked with their Lord. They will have to rest on the faith and assurance that His death and sacrifice was sufficient. They will also have to “walk in faith” that His Father, the God of Israel is powerful enough to succeed in overpowering and destroying the demonic forces of Satan. The question is, “do we really believe that this is true?”
When the Islamic scholars state that the “Ring of Solomon will seal the nose of every non-believer”, we are now beginning to see the merging of the Illuminate – Masonic connection with Islam. Here arise the ancient and medieval occultic legends that associate Solomon with loosing his kingdom when he gave the arch-demon called Asmodeus the “Ring” with the Name of the Holy One, the Tetragrammaton, engraved on it. It was this “ring” that gave Solomon his secrets. It also clues us into the sources that the ancient Imams and Islamic scholars used as their reference sources of inspiration.
According to Ibne Kathir, the “earth beast” will arise in a day in which “mankind had no faith in our (Islamic) revelations.” This beast will be able to communicate and talk with people. Yet from where does it come? As Christian scholars felt for decades that the United States is the “earth beast” that arose from the wilderness of the American continent that was inhabited only by the Indian nations, the Islamic scholars see the place of origin as the holy site of Mecca.
According the hadiths of the Prophet as written by Tabrani on the authority of Hudhaidfa-b-Usaid, the “earth beast” will come out from Al-Masjid Al-Haraam (Great Mosque) in Makkah (Mecca). This “beast” will be revealed three times, first from the desert, then from a village and in the final time, in the Great Mosque at Mecca.
How interesting this is! All through the Islamic traditions of the “earth beast” is the connection that the Islamic religion is the central focus of the beast’s identity. To the Muslims, the “earth beast” will arise at the final end of days when global catastrophes will envelope this planet that will include a complete polar reversal that is only understood in the tales of the ancient mythology and lore.
The Islamic religion appears to be recognized by her scholars and spiritual leaders as the “beast” that will be responsible for designating who is a believer and a non-believer at the time of the end. She will have access to the ancient artifacts such as the “rod of Moses” and the “ring of Solomon” that will give her religion the tools to define righteousness and evil. Yet, the scholars of Islam feel that the Book of Revelation has been corrupted and that Islam is a truer version of the events at the end of days. The problem exists, by believing that the New Testament is corrupt, they now have determined spiritual reality to be 180 degrees from the ”Revelation of Jesus” given to his emissary the Apostle John.
This sounds familiar for when the 17th century Jewish “messiah” Sabbatai Zevi, the last messiah of Judaism, came face to face with Islam in the prison of the Sultan of Constantinople, he converted to Islam. The mixture of Islam and messianic Lurianic Judaism that was corrupted gave an amalgamation of beliefs that was 180 degrees anti-Torah as is the role of the “earth beast”. This testimony is 180 degree against the Torah and against the “testimony of Jesus” who was the purest revelation of the Torah living in the flesh.
There at one of the cornerstones of the Kaaba, that ancient stone building where the Muslims pray surrounded by the enormous Grand Mosque at Mecca called the Masjid al-Haram, is the location of the holiest relic of Islam, the “Black Stone.” As part of the ritual of the pilgrims at Mecca, the pilgrims will circle the Kaaba and if possible, stop and kiss their “holy stone.” Small and insignificant, this supposed “black meteorite” is a holy relic of veneration for over 1 billion Muslims who supposedly pray to the Monotheistic God of Abraham.
This carries a parallel with the veneration of the Roman Catholic faithful to the icons and statutes of Jesus and the Madonna. Measuring about 19.7 cms with a large silver band surrounding it, this “black stone worship” differs significantly from whom the Prophet called the “people of the Book” who do not believe in any physical manifestations or objects to worship except to the Unknown and Unseen Monotheistic Almighty One of Israel.
There is an interesting parallel in the Book of Revelation concerning a “white stone” that Yahshua will give to the “overcomers” of the seven ecclesias (synagogues).
Revelation 2:17 – “‘He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes I will give some of the hidden manna to eat. And I will give him a white stone, and on the stone a new name which no one knows except him who receives it.’”
The Ismaili sect over the years was transformed first to the Persian Assassins that were destroyed in Iran by the imperial government of the Mongolian Empire called the Ill-Khanate. Today this Shi’ite sect follows the leadership of the Aga Khan, whom they believe is not in the lineage of the twelve Imams of Shi’ite Islam but the seven patriarchal Imams with a continuing lineage of the Imams of Islam to the present era.
As we have seen, the “earth beast” has been identified not only with Islam but with the holiest site of Islam, the Al-Masjid Al-Haraam in the Islamic holiest city of Mecca (Makkah.) The location of this “earth beast” also appears to have a fascinating parallel with the Book of Revelation. After the sixth seal of Revelation in chapter six, we enter the seventh chapter where the “four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth” that another angel is seen. This angel is unique in all scripture. It rises or ascends rather than coming down or materializing out of nowhere.
Revelation 7:2-3 – “Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”
Here then we see the 144,000 of all the tribes of Israel that were sealed. Are they literal genetic Israelites? Only the God of Israel knows! The fact exists that the God of Israel, He and only He alone is capable of knowing 12,000 “faithful” Torah observing Israelites that will carry the pure genetic lineage of each “chosen” tribe into the future kingdom of God.
Let us look at this text more closely. Where is this angel arising from? With the point of reference in Revelation where the central focal area is the city of Jerusalem, the angel is rising from some area to the east of Jerusalem and appears to be rising from the land. Is the “ascending angel” rising from the city of Mecca? The Islamic texts do not appear to reference an angelic being as being the “earth beast.” Yet in Revelation, it is this angel, not a beast, who is the one who is sealing the “saints” of the Most High God.
Who then is this beast? The scholarly opinions in Islam are quite varied and appear also to be mixed with the lore of the desert animist beliefs.
These descriptions include: “beast with coarse hair”
(Shi’ite Jurist Fatimah-bin-Qais), young of the she camel of the Prophet
Salih (Islamic Jurist Imam Al-Qurtubi of Cordoba), an “animal that has
features of many animals such as “head is like that of a bull, eyes like
that of a pig, ears like that of an elephant, horns like
that of a stag, neck like that of an ostrich, chest like a lion,
colour like that of a tiger, flanks like that of a cat, tail
like that of a ram, feet and legs like that of a camel and
a distance of 12 cubits between every two joints." (“Tadhkirah”, Paradise and Hellfire by Imam
al-Qurtubi) It is not that they believe that this is an apocalyptic
beast but rather a literal beast that will talk and persuade the
people that the Muslim way of life is the only true way. Here we enter into
the realms of “Star Trek” and the “Lord of the Rings.” It also makes us wonder
about what is the “image to the beast.”
The most interesting opinion by the Islamic scholars is that the “earth beast” is the Snake that guarded the Holy Ka’bah. According to Imam al-Qurtubi basing his statement on the opinion of Ibne Abbas relates the following concerning the “Snake” of Islam.
Imam Al-Qurtubi in the Tarkkh-Makka – “Obeying Allah's command the Prophet Ibraheem with the help of his son Ismail built the Holy Ka'bah. He dug a well inside the Holy Ka'bah which was to the right of who entered it and acted as a safe to all the gifts that were presented to the Ka'bah which were kept inside it.
At the time of Jurhum the gold and silver were stolen many times from the Kabah thus the tribe of Jurhum decided to choose a man amongst them to keep guard. Unfortunately, one day the guard himself decided to steal the gifts of the Kabah. Taking the opportunity as it came he climbed down the well and began to gather what he could in a piece of cloth. While he was busy Allah sent a stone on him, which closed the well and thus he was unable to escape.
From that day Allah sent a snake to guard the Ka'bah. The snake lived in the well guarding the gifts of the Ka'bah for over 500 years. Exposed to the wearing factors of nature the walls of the Ka'bah at the time of Quraish (slightly before the time Prophet received Prophethood) had become weak and part of the covering had also burnt, thus the Quraish decided to rebuild the Ka'bah. However, the snake prevented them from demolishing the Holy Ka'bah every time they tried. Finally they stood at the Place of Ibrahim and prayed, "Oh Allah if you are happy in its rebuilding then make it possible and take care of this snake." Allah sent an eagle which took the snake towards Ajyaad (rock near Mecca). This snake is referred to in the fourth opinion.”
Concerning the opinion on the nature of the “earth beast,” we quote Abu Amr Uthman Ibne Sa'd al-Mukri ad-Dani's opinion:
As-Sunan Al-Waridah Fil-Fitan quoting Abu Amr Uthman Ibne Sa'd al-Mukri ad-Dani - "There are many narration's in regards to the physical description, length, and nature of the Beast but most of these are Mawqoof (writings or sayings) on the Sahaba (Friends or Companions of the Prophet)…it is a huge creature that will come out from the Earth, a beast other than man, nobody will be able to escape it. It will stamp the Muslim by writing 'believer' between his eyes, and stamp the non-Muslim by writing Kafir (“one who hides, denies or hides the truth”) between his eyes."
According also to Islamic scholars, the “last major sign to appear before the Day of Judgment “ will be a raging fire that will start to the south in Yemen. The purpose of this fire will be to cause a mass migration north and to what is called “the place of their Assembly.”
Of the hadiths (sayings) of the Prophet:
Hadith of Hudaifa-b-Usaid – “Regarding the Major signs the Prophet said, "At the end of which a fire would burn out from Yemen and would drive people to the place of their assembly."
Bukhari (Muhammad Ismâ'îl al-Bukhârî, scholar on the sayings (hadiths) of Muhammad) quoting Abu Huraira (R.A), one of the Companions of Muhammad the Prophet - "The people will be gathered in three ways:
1. The first way will be of those who will wish or have a hope (for paradise) and will have a fear (of punishment).
2. The second batch will be those who will gather riding, two on a camel or three on a camel or ten on a camel.
3. The third batch will be the rest of the people who will be urged to gather by the fire which will accompany them at the time of their afternoon nap and stay with them where they will spend the night, and will be with them in the morning wherever they may be then, and will be with them in the afternoon wherever they may be then.
For the final deception, the Arabic people will have a “pillar of fire” like the Israelites did coming out of Egypt. This will be a “fire” where they will gather around for their protection and consolation. This “fire” will lead them north to the place of their assembly – Armageddon.
The strangest of the parallels is that while the “angel” of the Lord is sealing the saints of “our God” as spoken by one who was a Jew, the “earth beast” appears to be “sealing” its believers in the manner that the “earth beast” of Revelation is sealing Satan’s. This apocalyptic beast is pictured doing specific things such as; “perform great signs,” “deceive…by signs,” and “causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads.” And this “seal” according to the Muslims is the “Mark of the Beast.”
Is Islam the “Earth Beast” that will someday recognize that its power is granted to them by the “Sea Beast?” For those who watch and understand the geo-political maneuverings for world domination will begin to see that the Red Internationale will become subservient to the Golden Internationale. Then the Golden Internationale will become subservient to the Black Internationale.
Who then will seal its believers with the “Mark of the Beast?” From all appearances, the Islamic spiritual leaders and scholars believe that Islam will be that “earth beast.” If so, then Islam will become subservient also to the Black Internationale. Will the Roman Catholic Church be the Black Internationale? The best answer to date is that the “power” within the Vatican, or the “Black Pope” will rise to the surface as the “Vicor of Christ” and will be the “victor” in the race for global domination. “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”
