The USA ? History repeats itself When we don't learn from It . Daniel 12:1, Matthew 24:21,Isaiah 19:1-24. will come to past.. All of God's People must remove them selves from the City centers. Now is the window of opportunity not is the time to get a move on .Before the time when buying and selling becomes a problem. Now is the time to remove ourselves from the influences of heathen. Ministry to them must take place from out, but we must come in the cities to do it,not live in the cities.
Revelation 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
- Beast = Kingdom/Nation Daniel 7:23
- Earth = The Earth signifies a coming out of an unpopulated place as oppose to sea which represent high populace/densely populated. Unpopulated -Such was the nature of America till immigration and the fleeing from papal and kingly rule of Europe .
- Lamb = Jesus/sacrifice John 1:29; 1 Corinthians 5:7 A christian Nation.The USA.
- Horn = King or Daniel 7:24; 8:5, 21, 22; Zechariah 1:18. A Civil Power. Two Horns means two powers most likely Civil and religious power .If it is an image to the first beast of the papacy/Rome then it will surely boast of Civil and Religious power. The Roman church in the Vatican is the only Church that is a State/nation. So will America seek to sway Religious power in the future ?
The lamb-like horns and dragon voice of the symbol point to a striking contradiction between the professions and the practice of the nation thus represented. The "speaking" of the nation is the action of its legislative and judicial authorities. By such action it will give the lie to those liberal and peaceful principles which it has put forth as the foundation of its policy. The prediction that it will speak "as a dragon," and exercise "all the power of the first beast," plainly foretells a development of the spirit of intolerance and persecution that was manifested by the nations represented by the dragon and the leopard-like beast. And the statement that the beast with two horns "causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast," indicates that the authority of this nation is to be exercised in enforcing some observance which shall be an act of homage to the papacy.
Such action would be directly contrary to the principles of this government, to the genius of its free institutions, to the direct and solemn avowals of the Declaration of Independence, and to the Constitution. The founders of the nation wisely sought to guard against the employment of secular power on the part of the church, with its inevitable result--intolerance and persecution. The Constitution provides that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," and that "no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office of public trust under the United States." Only in flagrant violation of these safeguards to the nation's liberty, can any religious observance be enforced by civil authority. But the inconsistency of such action is no greater than is represented in the symbol. It is the beast with lamb-like horns--in profession pure, gentle, and harmless-- that speaks as a dragon.
"Saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast." Here is clearly presented a form of government in which the legislative power rests with the people; a most striking evidence that the United States is the nation denoted in the prophecy.
But what is the "image to the beast"? and how is it to be formed? The image is made by the two-horned beast, and is an image to the first beast. It is also called an image of the beast.
Then to learn what the image is like, and how it is to be formed, we must study the characteristics of the beast itself, --the papacy. When the early church became corrupted by departing from the simplicity of the gospel, and accepting heathen rites and customs, she lost the Spirit and power of God; and in order to control the consciences of the people she sought the support of the secular power. The result was the papacy, a church that controlled the power of the State, and employed it to further her own ends, especially for the punishment of "heresy." In order for the United States to form an image of the beast, the religious power must so control the civil government that the authority of the State will also be employed by the church to accomplish her own ends.
