Two horned Lamb is a dual power like Two horned Ram in Daniel

Recommended Posts

i believe Daniel 2 describes the divided Rome as still a significant power at the second coming. Rome divided into Western Europe and Turkey, these are the two feet of iron and clay.

 

Now Revelation 13 once again describes a two-part empire that has significant power in the end-times. It is described as a beast (wild animal/aurochs). Beasts represent empires. This beast has two little horns, this means this beast has two small centres of power. I believe the two-horned beast and the two feet are the same two religious empires, because its highly unlikely there are four dominant powers at the end. And so I believe the two little horns (horns like a lamb's horns - ie very small) are the cities of Rome and Istanbul.

 

Quite simply, Turkey will set up a new Union in the Middle East, of ten countries. The EU will join this union and so we will have a vast Islamic empire. This empire will allow the Jews to govern a larger region, and will allow them a temple, and a leader (false Messiah) and so there will be peace in the Middle East during the rule of this false Jewish Messiah.

 

Jesus warned us about false prophets (Mohamed) and false Christs (Jewish leaders) and we are to watch out for both.

Hence scholars, building upon the implied premise only those nations that affect Israel count, conclude the legs of iron represent the Roman Empire which destroyed the Temple and the Israel as a Nation and consider the Eastern and Western halves symbolized by the two legs.

 

Therefore, Scholars contradict their own exegesis when they refuse to consider the dual world power of Britain and America, both containing much of the iron of the Roman Empire, as part of the duality represented by the two feet dividing the Ten Toes.

 

The angel of God certainly found it plausible a two horned beast represented a Gentile Government, one of which arose from the other:

 

20 "The ram which you saw, having the two horns-- they are the kings of Media and Persia. (Dan 8:20 NKJ)

 

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. (Rev 13:11 NKJ)

 

So the dilemma facing those who accept the conclusion America isn't found in Bible prophecy is this:

 

If only those Gentile powers affecting Israel are counted as "heads" of the beast (Rev 17:10) and these are the last days, then how is it the Gentile Governments most responsible for the rebirth of Israel (UK, US, UN) and its continued existence, are not mentioned in scripture?

 

Critically speaking, if neither the UK, US or UN, which solely are responsible for modern day Israel's existence, are not in prophecy, then these cannot be the last days.

 

And that conclusion would be rejected by all who believe the Bible divinely inspired prophecy.

 

I believe the 4th empire is Rome, but this is a loose symbolic word representing the West from a Middle Eastern perspective. Thus from Israel's perspective the UK, France, Italy and USA are its western allies. From an Islamic perspective these countries are their western enemies.

 

Thus the USA is in prophecy, but merely as a province of Rome, without need of specific mention. A term rarely used is "the western coastlands", which would include western Europe and also North America from an Israeli perspective.  Rome has two divisions, each which have shared control over Israel for thousands of years, the two divisions are Western Europe  and Turkey. Control may currently rest with western Rome since WW1, but may soon shift once more to Eastern Rome (Istanbul/Turkey) in the near future. Whichever power dominates Israel, its still Rome, the fourth kingdom.

Perhaps you'll educate me, what is to be gained by not following Daniel's lead interpreting a two horned Beast as a dual world power?

 

While I agree the confederation of these world powers, unties to support the Antichrist, what is to be gained by denying the US is mentioned in prophecy?

 

To me, that works against the premise the Bible is inspired prophecy, IF THESE are the last days. Now if the last days are a few centuries from now, then its explicable how this nation, so trashed by crooked politicians and a disinterested public evidently craving socialism, won't be a factor in the end time.

I think the Op put a lot of thought to something that won't even be, two horns like a lamb, is not a two horned lamb, it is something that will have two horns like a lamb. At the Baptism of Jesus the Holy Spirit descended like a dove it was not a dove, but LIKE a dove. maybe He moved like a dove, Jesus praying in the garden and His Sweat became if it were Blood, It did not turn to Blood but LIKE blood, it could have very well been dipping off him like Blood drops. heard a sermon once lasted a whole hour, on all kind of medical research on how it is possible for a human to sweat so hard the they actually start bleeding. I look LIKE my brother does not Mean I become my brother, I flew through the air LIKE a Bird, does not mean I became a bird

I completely agree with Daniel's lead that a two-horned beast is a dual world power, and I believe you are wise to have picked that up. Reading Daniel 2 I personally believe that clay represents true religion (able to be moulded) and yet brittle or miry clay represents that true religion distorted. So when I read Daniel 2 it speaks to me of the two divisions of Rome being distorted by a false religious system that has entered each region during the end-times. Then when I read Revelation 13 which also speaks of a two part religious empire that dominates world politics at the end-times its obvious to me that there are not 4 religious empires at the end, and so the wild beast with the two tiny horns like a lamb's horns is in my logic, the same two divisions of Rome, being Istanbul and Vatican. Two religious powers. Two false prophet capital cities acting as one.

 

And so I'm not trying to avoid the USA in prophecy I just don't believe its there. 

 

If you understand conspiracy then you would understand that European bankers raise and destroy countries at will, the USA is strong because Europe needs its armies right now to subdue the Middle East. While the USA populace feels that their armies are doing good in the Middle East, European bankers can continue to milk the situation without committing European armies to pacify their backdoor. Now that the Middle East is subdued the following three allies of the West are stronger in the region:   Israel, Turkey and the Kurds.  Entire populations in the Middle East are now prepared to go the Sunni way, be west friendly and await a western Messiah due to watching the enemies of the West being crushed into pieces like Iraq/Syria/Afghanistan. So its Europe puling the strings, not the USA. The USA is the willing agent. Prophesy confirms this by focussing on Europe.

Exactly, a beast is a wild animal/aurochs. A beast with horn's like a lamb, is a wild animal with two tiny horns. I'm not sure where people get a lamb from, this beast is nothing like a lamb. Just its horns resemble a lamb's horns, which means they are tiny horns.

 

Because horns represent countries/divisions of an empire, this means that this wild beast empire that practically controls the world has two small centres of power, possibly the Vatican/Pope and the Istanbul Caliph/Caliphate.

the two horned lamb is religious Rome

 

If that is so, who is the Beast in Rev 13:1?

 

Its the new Middle Eastern Union. When we see the ten horns, this is the final phase of the 3 phases of the Rome superpower:

 

Daniel 2

Iron legs   =   Rome

Iron and clay  =  Rome and Istanbul

Ten toes  =  Ten Middle East regions

 

Daniel 7

Beast = Rome

Little horn = Ten Middle East regions

 

Rev 13

Beast = Ten Middle East regions  (Leopard/lion/bear)

Two-horned beast =  Rome and Istanbul

 

Rev 17

Woman = Rome

Beast = Ten Middle East regions

 

 

Each prophecy is saying the same thing but in a different way.

      Why I am Post-Millennialist   (or a Spiritual Post Bi-Millennianist)!

      Post-Millennialism teaches that Christ comes back after the Millennium (portrayed as 1,000 years which is 10 - the number of perfection cubed; 10 x 10 x 10 = 1,000)! In Pre-Millennialism, Jesus is said to come back before the Millennium! There are three main pre-millennial schools, each of which relate to the specific timing of the Tribulation (pre-trib, mid-trib and post-trib). On the other hand, with regard to Post-Millennialism, there are two main schools, firstly that that Millennium is situated here upon this earth which will become more and more Christianised over time, a view which is held by many theonomists, but which I would happen to reject. Secondly, that the Millennium refers to the reign of Christ over the souls of dead saints, who are currently ruling with Christ, in heaven ever since his ascension, and that this (millennial reign), will last until his second coming.
       
                  This second view is the one I which hold to, basically it places the Millennium in heaven, where Christ rules over the souls of disincarnate spirits, during what is called the “intermediate state.” My own position has sometimes been called the A-Millennium view. But, I would reject that title, as it implies that there is no millennium at all, a position which I certainly and clearly have rejected. Also in much A -Millennium eschatology, Christ’s current reign is said to be within the hearts of his people (saints), many living upon this earth, which again as I stated I firmly reject, as I would regard the Millennial reign of Christ as exclusively situated in heaven. For this reason to save confusion, I am a Post-Millennialist, but one who would place Christ’s (spiritual) reign in heaven, as he is currently reigning, and this isn't a physical reign upon this earth, or within people’s hearts, he’s reigning in heaven NOW!
       
      Evidences for my position abound, namely Revelation 20:4 states that those people in the Millennium are said to be “souls,” which indicates only those dead saints in the intermediate state. Also, throughout Revelation, we repeatedly read of God’s throne being in heaven, for instance Revelation 4:2: “a throne set in heaven,” and Revelation 20:4 which states: “I saw thrones” which is speaking of those dead saints who are ruling with Christ, in heaven, during the intermediate state. So I’d argue that the Millennial reign has a heavenly setting, it is not based upon this earth, and neither is it within the hearts of God’s people, as many A-Millennialists have claimed! Also consider the idiocy of Christians assuming that Christ does not reign during the church age, or that this reign has no name, in either the Bible or in Christian Theology! It does have a name! it’s called the Millennium or thousand years!
       
      The phrase “a thousand years” is used six times in Revelation 20, traditionally, this refers to the Biblical period of human (biblical) history, personally I would not take it literally, a thousand is simply ten, which is the number of perfection cubed. However, of these six occurrences of the number one thousand, four refer from Adam to Christ, and two of these “one thousand years,” which specifically mention dead souls “reigning with Christ” at Revelation 20:4 and 20:6, apply to the church age, but with regard to Christ’s heavenly reign. Now seeing that this reign must be situated in heaven, and as every relevant mention of God’s throne in the Apocalypse is indeed set in heaven, the 1,000 years of verse 4 added to the 1,000 years of verse 6, gives us a period of approximately 2,000 years; from Christ’s ascension until his second coming which is the natural end of the intermediate state. For death itself is finished (done away with) at Christ’s second coming (1st Corinthians 15:23-26), this happens; “at the last trump” (1st Corinthians 15:52), that at Christ’s second coming, and not one thousand years after the second coming, as in Pre-Millennial eschatology.
       
      I have come to this position of mine after much dialogue with local Jehovah’s Witnesses (JW). I was intrigued that they, parroting the “latest light” from their Watchtower Society, claimed that Christ’s reign was not instituted at his ascension, despite Colossians 1:13 so clearly stating in the present tense, that at the time Paul had written this, Christ, was already a king over his own kingdom! These JWs would then reason that Christ’s kingdom was instituted in the year 1919, but as I pondered this, I came to realise that the Pre-Millennial view, so beloved of American Dispensationalists and their disciples within the Pentecostal movement, had many similarities to the JW position. Both positions failed to grasp that in scripture, be it the fall, salvation or Christ’s Kingdom, it’s always the spiritual first and then the physical second. So God was not lying when he said to Adam: “in the day you eat of it you shall surely die” (Genesis 2:17). Adam ate the fruit, but his fall was spiritual immediately, his physical death happened much later. So too in salvation, we are saved spiritually first, but the physical redemption of the body is a still future promise, after Christ’s second coming, and that despite what the Television money preachers on TBN and GOD TV will tell you (Romans 8:23).
       
      Finally, the first resurrection of Revelation 20:6 is obviously spiritual, (i.e. it refers to the salvation of the soul/spirit), that is of disincarnate “souls,” who are currently reigning with Christ during the intermediate state, which is a period of possibly 1,000 + 1,000 = 2,000 years, if you wish to take these numbers literally as American Dispensationalists like to insist upon. Now although it is not specifically mentioned by name, the second resurrection must be the redemption of the physical body mentioned at Romans 8:23, for remember that the Bible  puts the spiritual first and the physical second with regard to both the fall and also to salvation. This (physical) salvation happens at the last trump (1st Corinthians 15:52), that is at Christ’s second coming, and not one thousand years after the expiration of some strange earthly millennium, of the saved and unsaved, living together as both disincarnate spirits (souls) as well as people with their souls upon this earth! Finally, remember that the “day of the Lord” (1st Thessalonians 5:2), which comes as a thief in the night, isn’t referring to the first part of some double-barrelled second coming, called the “rapture,” there is only one second coming and that permanently ends the intermediate state, which I maintain is the (spiritual) reign of Christ in heaven over the souls of his disincarnate saints.
       
      Thank you for considering my point of view. I am far from perfect and I'm open to help and correction.

      Hi all. Here's another video, this one about the Mark of the Beast. It's a bit longer than the other videos (a run time of 18 minutes) and it comes in 3 parts (the other 2 parts will be released later).

      The video attempts to detail how the Mark of the Beast will almost certainly manifest itself as a microchip implant in the hand for buying/selling and how various strategies for taking it are being developed and disseminated to the general public.

      I look forward to some lively discussion.

      Hi all. Here's another video produced by some friends of mine. It's 6 minutes, so not too long. There is a rather intimate link between prophecy and the teachings of Jesus. After all, the angel from Revelation 10 tells us that the spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus. The video examines the relationship between Jesus' comments, in particular, about serving two masters and the Mark of the Beast, both of which heavily revolve around our relationship to money.

      I look forward to hearing what others think. Lets get some good discussion going about the Mark of the Beast and personal motivations!

      Hi all,
      My friends and I made a short video (only 5 minutes). A good many of you would probably already be familiar with the content but I'd still be keen to hear your thoughts on our perspective and perhaps get some good discussion going about the various theories and possibilities. Let me know what you think.

      Hi all.  This is the first chapter in an animated video series (of 25 chapters) detailing how prophecy could play out in practical reality. It's a work of fiction, but I believe it does a pretty good job of lining up with prophecy and the spirit of Jesus' teachings from the gospels.
      In the first episode America is destroyed in a surprise military strike by Russia, which brings about a domino effect for a series of further prophetic events.  The story focuses on a family who is forced to take shelter in the basement; they had always believed that they would be raptured before all the trouble started. Now they must come to terms with what's happening around them and find a way forward through the coming years.
