Jesus Christ is the Anti-Christ
 

John identified Jesus Christ as the Beast

 

Revelation 13

 

The Beast out of the Sea

 

16 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea…17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.

 

Revelation specifically and uniquely names Jesus Christ as the anti-Christ.  Doesn’t look like it in English does it?  That is because the English translation of this verse is in error.  I am going to challenge this uninspired translation above that has kept us all in the dark for thousands of years.  Here again, we are warned that to understand the “name of the beast” requires those who have the wisdom and insight into spiritual things.  We are going to employ just such wisdom and insight in this section to clearly identify Jesus Christ as the name of the beast and demonstrate that what John actually said and meant in Revelation 13 is this:

 

Revelation 13

 

The Beast out of the Sea

 

13 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea (sea serpent xes3 )…17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark (xes2), which is the name of the beast or (rather) the symbol of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom (to discern the Christogram). Let the person who has (spiritual) eyes to see reckon up the (pictogram of the) symbol of the beast that identifies him, for it is the symbol of a man. That symbol is

 

No exposition of The False Messiah would be complete without exposing the name of the beast and the number of his name.  Again we are misled by The Christian Church to believe The Mark of the Beast is 666 when actually it is the spiritual mark of The Trinity which is an X on the forehead (belief that Jesus in God incarnate) which is opposite of The Mark of YHVH.  In reality, the numbers 666 have nothing to do with anything at all!  That is where the wisdom and insight come in.  You see, John didn’t write down a “number”, he wrote down the 3 Greek letters of the symbol of Jesus Christ to the exclusion of all others in history.

666 is a violation of scripture not to “add to or subtract from”

Below is what Revelation 13 looks like in the Greek language:

beast2

So the number 666 in our English Bibles is misleading as it only represented the gematria or the associated number of what John actually wrote in Greek letters , xes2,xes3and xes3, (Chi, Xi and Sigma).   Translators converted the Greek letters 666-as written in Greekinto the number 666 because they mistranslated the meaning of the Greek word arithmos in Rev. 13 as “number”.  Then they subtracted 666-as written in Greekand added 666. 

 

They should never have changed the SYMBOL to a number in the first place!  The Translators should have left this ‘symbol’ in our English Bibles as 666-as written in Greekso that at “the time of the end” we would recognize the mark, the monogram, and the pictogram.  The number 666 has nothing to do with what John actually wrote as he didn’t write down a number but a symbol.  We arrived at our English translation of Revelation 13 by uninspired translators and scribes who did not posses the “wisdom” and spiritual “insight” John said was required, leaving us all subsequently in the dark until now.  So let’s illuminate Revelation 13 with a little Wisdom from YHVH and spiritual insight…

 

John saw the SYMBOL 666-as written in Greeknot a NUMBER

 

What John was shown in Revelation 13 was a vision of the mark, the symbol of the serpent, the pictogram, and the monogram of Jesus Christ.  John did not see nor write a number.  The symbol John saw was a symbol for Jesus Christ which is called a Christogram

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christogram

 

A Christogram is a monogram or combination of Greek letters that forms an abbreviation for the name of Jesus Christ, traditionally used as a Christian symbol. Christogram comes from the Latin phrase "Christi Monogramma", meaning "monogram of Christ". Different types of Christograms are associated with the various traditions of Christianity

 

The Catholic Encyclopedia admits that XS is one of the standard Christograms:

 

Catholic Encyclopedia - http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07649a.htm

IHS

A monogram of the Jesus Christ. From the third century the names of our Saviour are sometimes shortened, particularly in Christian inscriptions (IH and XP, for Jesus and Christus). In the next century the "sigla" (chi-rho) occurs not only as an abbreviation but also as a symbol. From the beginning, however, in Christian inscriptions the nomina sacra, or names of Jesus Christ, were shortened by contraction, thus IC / XC (which is IS / XS today) or IHS and XPS for Iesous Christos.

John “saw” in his vision one of those “different types of monograms” or symbols of Jesus Christ. There are many Christograms used throughout history and all of them use different combinations of the Greek letters in Christos ΧΡΙΣΤΟS.   The monogram that John wrote down is unique using the Greek letter that symbolizes the serpentxes3.  John used the first and last Greek letters in ΧΡΙΣΤΟS (the most commons symbol in history for Jesus Christ) with the letter sigmaxes3in the middle:

 

We read below these 3 Greek characters represent the pagan Greek title Christos ΧΡΙΣΤΟS used of all pagan demi-gods after which Jesus Christ was fashioned by Constantine.  But this ONE monogram XS includes the symbol of the sea serpent mentioned in Revelation 13:1…

"Number in Scripture" - Dr E W Bullinger pg 49

Indeed the expression of this number, 666-as written in Greek, consists of the initial and final letters of the word ΧΡΙΣΤΟS (Christos), Christ, the X and V, with the symbol of the serpent between them, X—xV.. The middle letter represents the symbol of the serpent and is intimately connected with the ancient Egyptian Mysteries.

Bear in mind that we are still after the 'Name' of this opposing force against the True God YHVH, which, if this Scripture in Rev.13:16-18 has any reference to it, is linked with this mysterious symbol linked to paganism - the symbol of the serpent xes3 which Revelation declares gives the false messiah his power, authority, and throne on Earth.

Does arithmos mean ‘number’ or ‘symbol’ in context of Rev. 13?

 

Throughout history, the name Jesus Christ has been represented by symbols not numbers as John demonstrated by writing down the symbol 666-as written in Greekin Revelation Chapter 13:18.

A Christogram is a monogram or combination of Greek letters that forms an abbreviation for the name of Jesus Christ, traditionally used as a Christian symbol.

 

The Catholic Encyclopedia admits that these Christograms are symbols not numbers:

ariqmoV mistranslated

 

The word arithmos translated as number in Revelation 13:18 should have been translated as symbol or the “figurative representation” that “lifts up” a specific man as to “identify” him by name… such as a mark, pictogram, or monogram.  In Revelation 13:18 the Greek word translated number in English is Strong’s #706 arithmos below

 

706

ariqmoV
arithmos
ar-ith-mos'

From root word airw - airo 142; a number (as reckoned up):--number.

 

Arithmos can mean “number” as in the sense of; a symbol that represents a specific calculated measurement of units. Arithmos can also mean; “representation” or “symbol” in the sense of “reckoned up” to identify something.  The words “representation” and “symbol” are English synonyms of “number” see… http://thesaurus.com/browse/number

 


 

In Revelation 13:18, “symbol” would be a much more accurate English word for the Greek word arithmosArithmos as used by John is in the sense of “representation” or “symbol” used to “reckoned up” and identify something in this case The False Messiah’ name

 

To understand which word (number or symbol) better represents arithmos in this specific case, the translators should have consulted the ROOT WORD of arithmos which is airoAiro gives us a full sense of what John was saying given he wrote down a symbol not a number

 

Arithmos is derived from the Greek root word airo Strong’s #142 below:

 

142

airw
airo
ah'-ee-ro

a primary root word; to lift up; by representation, to take up or away; figuratively

 

The word arithmos in conjunction with its root airo implies a “symbol” that is used “to figuratively lift up; by representation” not a mathematical number.  Arithmos is used this way by John in Revelation 13:18 and means a symbol or a “figurative representation” that “identifies” i.e. a mark, pictogram, or monogram!  That is why John did not write down a number after arithmos he put down 3 Greek letters that is used as a symbol that figuratively represents Jesus Christ…

 

The reason the number 666 appears in our English Bibles and not his symbol 666-as written in Greekis because the translators mistranslated arithmos as number instead of symbol.  Then the translators took the liberty of changing the text and converting 666-as written in Greekinto the number 666 using the system of Gematria.  This was a grave error in translation.  They should have left the text alone, remember the warning not to add to or subtract from the Book of Revelation?  Well in this case the translators did both!

 

Revelation 22:18

 

18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: if anyone adds to them, God will add to him the plagues which are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away his part from the tree of life and from the holy city, which are written in this book.

 

So arithmos as used by John should have been translated as symbol in the sense of a “figurative representation to lift up and identify” the name Jesus Christ.  That is the full meaning and how it is used by John in Revelation 13:18.  How do we know?  Because John didn’t write 666 our English translators inserted that number and took out the symbol.  John put down the Greek symbol 666-as written in Greek, the “figurative representation” that “lifts up” and identifies the name of the coming False Messiah Jesus Christ.  No wonder John warned us we would need “wisdom and insight” to figure this one out because our translators failed us yet again.

 

What John was actually saying in Revelation 13 is

 

Revelation 13

 

The Beast out of the Sea

 

18 This calls for wisdom.  Let the person who has insight reckon up the symbol of the beast, for it is the symbol of a man that identifies him. That symbol is 666-as written in Greek

 

This “figurative representation that lifts up to identify” i.e. 666-as written in Greekis the symbol of Jesus Christ exclusively no other figure in human history uses this symbol.

 

Do these Greek letters point us uniquely to the name “Jesus” and “Christ”?

 

Throughout history, the Christian Church has used various combinations of Greek letters in Christos ΧΡΙΣΤΟS to represent Jesus Christ as SYMBOLS it does not and has never used 666 or numbers.   Sometimes we see letters in Christos in combination with letters from other titles used as the monogram for “Jesus Christ”.  For instance, the famous chi-rho monogram, a symbol which became part of the official standard of the emperor Constantine, was made from the first two letters of Christos ΧΡΙΣΤΟS. Other symbols use the first and last letter ΧΡΙΣΤΟS, or just the first Χ, and so on.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chi_Rho

The Chi Rho is one of the earliest forms of the christogram and is used by some Christians. It is formed by superimposing the first two (capital) letters chi and rho (ΧΡ) of the Greek word "ΧΡΙΣΤΟS" =Christ in such a way to produce the monogram. Although not technically a Christian cross, the Chi-Rho invokes the crucifixion of Jesus, as well as symbolizing his status as the Christ.
                                               

The Chi-Rho symbol was used by the Roman emperor Constantine I, which is known as Labarum. Early pagan symbols similar to the Chi Rho were the Staurogram (Christliche Symbolik (Menzel) I 193 2.jpg) and the IX Monogram (Christliche Symbolik (Menzel) I 193 4.jpg)

The version of the Christogram above used by Constantine  is to this day emblazoned on the pagan alter of The Catholic Church.  The Christogram of Constantine is also inscribed on the YMCA building below:

 

 

What version of the Christogram did John see in Rev. 13?

 

Most versions of the Christogram that use letters in the Greek word for Christ (ΧΡΙΣΤΟS), the one John saw too represents the first and last letters in Christos ΧΡΙΣΤΟS or XS.  XS is one of the most common Christograms throughout history which in medieval times was an XC.  Anytime we see XC in paintings or murals that is equivalent to XS today.

 

As I mentioned earlier the letters in a Christogram can be combined with other symbols as well to make the Christogram more meaningful.  Like the one Constantine used  that is still being used today on the pagan Alter of the Catholic Church and other Christian structures.  The Christogram that John used in Revelation portrayed the most famous monogram for Christos (ΧΡΙΣΤΟS) with the Egyptian pagan mystery symbol of the serpent xes3 in the middle to give it more meaning.  The sea serpent is identified In Revelation 13:1 as the “beast coming out of the sea” and is the source of the power, authority, and throne of The False Messiah.   So when identifying that beast, John used the first two letters of Christos (ΧΡΙΣΤΟS) with the symbol of the serpent xes3in the middle.

 

 

The universal symbol throughout the ages and throughout cultures is a serpent in an upright coil:

What John was telling us by using the standard monogram for Jesus Christ or ΧS is that the “sea serpent” or the dragon would be the source of the power, great authority and throne of the False Messiah.

 

Revelation 13

 

And I saw a beast coming out of the sea … The dragon (serpentxes3) gave the beast (XS) his power and his throne and great authority.

 

"Number in Scripture" - Dr E W Bullinger pg 49)

Indeed the expression of this number, CxV, consists of the initial and final letters of the word XristoV (Christos), Christ, viz., X and V, with the symbol of the serpent between them, X—xV.. The middle letter represents the symbol of the serpent and is intimately connected with the ancient Egyptian Mysteries.

This is exactly what The Apostle Paul told us:

 

2 Thessalonians 2

 

9 The coming of the lawless one (the one in whom The Law is abolished i.e. Jesus Christ) will be in accordance with how Satan works (the spirit behind The False Messiah is the serpent). He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie

 


 

We see the Greek letters such as IC and XC (which is XS today) used as symbols for ‘Jesus Christ’ in painted mosaics the world over:

 

 

“IC XC” as written in the Hellenistic period is a Christogram, a monogram of “Jesus Christ”.  When Jesus Christ is written in Greek looks like this: ΙΗΣΟΥΣ ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ.  If we take the first and last letters of ΙΗΣΟΥΣ (“Jesus”) and ΧΡΙΣΤΟΣ (“Christ”) we are left with: ΙΣ ΧΣ.  Today that would read IS XS.

 

Note: In handwritten Greek during the Hellenistic period (4th and 3rd centuries BC), the epigraphic form of Σ was simplified into a C-like shape, thereby giving us: IC XC.  But today “at the time of the end” when Revelation would be understood the Σ is transliterated as the letter S.  Therefore all these Christograms painted world-wide if painted today would read IS / XS.  XS (ΧΣ) being the Christogram used by John in Revelation 13 as a symbol not a number

 

These mosaics of Jesus Christ would have a serpent symbol above the IC XC (which today would be IS XS).  If you move that serpent symbol into the monogram below it you have the exact symbol John wrote in Revelation 13:18.  Remember the Greek letter Sigma Σ at the time this mosaic was painted was transliterated as a C.  Today the Sigma is transliterated as an S:

The symbol John saw is literally hidden in plain site as THE symbol for Jesus Christ in paintings, on mosaics that adorn cathedrals, on stain glass murals, on buildings and inscriptions the world over.

 

 

In many paintings, Jesus Christ is depicted as making the same cryptic hand gestures as seen above.  This hand gesture is literally the symbol of the anti-Christ that John saw in Revelation… X Sigma or XS (depicted as XC as the Sigma was transliterated as a C in the middle ages).  We see in the images above that Jesus’ right hand forms an X by crossing his first two fingers and he forms the C for Sigma by curving his last two fingers making the C shape.  This is the hand gesture of the False Messiah as he identifies himself in plain site making the XS symbol with his hands, the very symbol John used in Revelation 13…

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christogram

In Eastern Christianity, the most widely used Christogram is a four-letter abbreviation, ΙϹΧϹ — a traditional abbreviation of the Greek words for "Jesus Christ” "ΙΗϹΟΥϹ ΧΡΙϹΤΟϹ" with the lunate sigma "Ϲ" common in medieval Greek which we today transliterate as an S. On icons, this Christogram may be split: "ΙϹ" on the left of the image and "ΧϹ" on the right, most often with a sideways S above the letters to indicating that it is a sacred nameJesus Christ’s right hand is shown in a pose that represents the letters Χ, and Ϲ.

666-as written in Greekpoints the Trinity as well as Christ

 

The sign of the cross is the mark of Jesus Christ and that of the false religion of Christianity:

 

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary

 

the mark, or the name—Greek, "the mark (namely), the name of the beast." The mark may be, as in the case of the sealing of the saints in the forehead, not a visible mark, but symbolical of allegiance. Such as the sign of the cross in Popery.

 

Can this “symbol” John used be associated with The Trinity specifically? 

Remember, John’s warning that “reckoning up the symbol” requires spiritual understanding and INSIGHT or “eyes to see”.  

 

Revelation 13

 

18 This calls for wisdom (spiritual understanding of the mind). Let the person who has (spiritual) insight reckon up the symbol of the beast that identifies him

 

The Mark of the Beast is the first letter in ΧΡΙΣΤΟS the X most widely used monogram for Christ and the mark on the forehead of Christians:

 

 

The X mark is made on the forehead in Christianity while repeating “in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit” or XES sealing the mind with the apposing mark of The Shema.

Etymology references Wiktionary:

X | Xs plural form | Xes plural form

Origin: Christ by abbreviation, from Ancient Greek Χ (Ch, "(letter chi)"), from Χριστός (Christós,... (26 of 44 etymology words)

The Sign and the Seal of The Beast is the X monogram

The first letter Chi or xes2is also used widely today as just one of the many monograms or symbols for Christ and is literally The Mark of the Beast John was referring to in Revelation 13!

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christogram

 

The most commonly encountered Christogram in English-speaking countries in modern times is the X (or more accurately, Greek letter chi) in the abbreviation Xmas (for "Christmas"), which represents the first letter of the word Christ.

The early Church Fathers attested to the use of the sign of the cross and that it is the Seal or Mark of Christianity; the mark that apposes The Shema.

Tertullian (d. ca. 250) described the commonness of the sign of the cross:

 "In all our travels and movements, in all our coming in and going out, in putting on our shoes, at the bath, at the table, in lighting our candles, in lying down, in sitting down, whatever employment occupies us, we mark our foreheads with the sign of the cross" (De corona, 30).

St. Cyril of Jerusalem (d. 386) in his Catechetical Lectures stated,

"Let us then not be ashamed to confess the Crucified. Be the cross our seal, made with boldness by our fingers on our brow and in everything; over the bread we eat and the cups we drink, in our comings and in our goings out; before our sleep, when we lie down and when we awake; when we are traveling, and when we are at rest" (Catecheses, 13).

Gradually, the sign of the cross was incorporated in different acts of the Mass, such as the three-fold signing of the forehead, lips, and heart.  Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent which is the Babylonian ritual of “Weeping for Tammuz”. Occurring 46 days before Easter which is the sacrifice of a pig in honor of the death of Tammuz.  At Masses and services of worship on Ash Wednesday, ashes are imposed on the foreheads of the faithful.

The priest, minister, or in some cases officiating layperson, marks the forehead of each participant with black ashes in the sign of the cross, which the worshipper traditionally retains until it wears off.

666-as written in Greekis the pictogram of name of Jesus as well as Christ identifying “Jesus Christ” by name

 

It would take understanding to identify the monogram.  Insight or spiritual eyes to see would be looking at this symbol 666-as written in Greekas a pictogram as well as a monogram

 

The symbol 666-as written in Greekwould be a pictogram of the English letters XES.

Pictogram - http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/pictogram

Strictly speaking, a pictogram represents by illustration, an ideogram represents an idea, and a logogram represents a word: Chinese characters are all logograms, but few are pictograms or ideograms. Casually, pictogram is used to represent all of these: it is a picture representing some concept.

The pictogram 666-as written in Greekwould be visually associated and visually represent the characters XES in English.  The Greek letter X looks like an X, the Greek letter Xi looks like the English letter E in both upper and lower case forms:

The Greek letter Sigma looks like an S giving us the pictogram of the English letters XES in both upper and lower case form:

 

 

XES as a pictogram of 666-as written in Greek is the plural form of the X monogram of Jesus

Etymology references Wiktionary:

X | Xs plural form | Xes plural form

Origin: Christ by abbreviation, from Ancient Greek Χ (Ch, "(letter chi)"), from Χριστός (Christós,... (26 of 44 etymology words)

So XES would indicate Jesus in triplicate.  Jesus was often represented in this form in antiquity.

 

 

As a pictogram of XES in English, this symbol 666-as written in Greekuniquely identifies the nameJesus’ as well. 

IHS = 666-as written in Greek= XES the pictogram

 

The first 3 letters of the name Jesus are one of the most commonly used monograms for Jesus today.  The most famous is IHS which is a Latin contracted form of IHSous (Jesus):

 

Catholic Encyclopedia - http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/07649a.htm

IHS

A monogram of the Jesus Christ. From the third century the names of our Saviour are sometimes shortened, particularly in Christian inscriptions (IH and XP, for Jesus and Christus). In the next century the "sigla" (chi-rho) occurs not only as an abbreviation but also as a symbol.

 

666-as written in Greekis a pictogram for the English letters XESXES is the English translation of one of the Greek forms of IHS, the most famous of the symbols of Jesus.  XESÚS is a common spelling of Jesus today:

 

 

In fact, the name Jesus is written in the Greek Galician dialect as XESus and is of Hebrew origin at the time John wrote Revelation.

 

XESÚS - http://meaningbabynames.com/meaning/Xesus

 

The baby boy name Xesus is pronounced as KahSahS (*). Xesus is of Hebrew origin and it is used mainly in the Galician language. Xesus is a variation of Jesus (English, Portuguese, Spanish, and German).

 

XESÚS - http://www.behindthename.com/name/xesu10s

 

GENDER: Masculine

USAGE: Galician

Meaning - Galician form of JESUS, used as a personal name.

 

That symbol John used 666-as written in Greekcontains the mark of the beast xes2, the mark of the serpent xes3, the monogram for Christos ΧΡΙΣΤΟS -  XS, and the pictogram 666-as written in Greekfor the letters XES.  XESus is Greek for JESus which in Latin is the most famous symbol for the name Jesus… the symbol IHSous.  So 666-as written in Greekis pointing us to IHS which is the monogram for the name “Jesus”:

 

 

666-as written in GreekCould be associated with Zeus

John also used the ONE monogram that could be associated with Zeus.  Jesus in Latin means “Hail Zeus”.  In Greek, the first of these three letters used by John 666-as written in Greekalso takes the sound of a 'Z' - as in Xenephen or Xylophone. The first and last Greek letters of this formula, may therefore also be referring to the first and last letters of the name 'Zeus' again pointing to Jesus.  Keeping in mind that Constantine named his new god “Jesus” after the god of the Pantheon Zeus as was their custom. They ended names and cities using “sous/sus/us” after their own god Zeus.  Take for example the name of Julius Caesar “Gaius Julius Caesar” or the name of the Roman Emperor Constantine who literally created Christianity “Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus Augustus”.  The suffix “us” was added to Greek and Roman names to give glory to Zeus where Yah was added to Hebrew names to give glory to Yahuah. 

“It is known that the Greek name endings with sus, seus, and sous were attached by the Greeks to names and geographical areas as means to give honor to their supreme deity, Zeus."

Dictionary of Christian Lore and Legend

 

What we have learned is that out of all the various symbols constructed with the Greek letters of Christos, this ONE version 666-as written in Greekused by John specifically identifies Jesus Christ as the sea serpent xes3(the beast of the sea), it identifies his mark xes2, his monogram XS, and a pictogram in English XES of his name which is his IHS monogram. 

 

Below is Revelation 13 in its true meaning:

 

Revelation 13

 

The Beast out of the Sea

 

13 The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea (sea serpent xes3 )…17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark (xes2), which is the name of the beast or (rather) the symbol of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom (to discern the Christogram). Let the person who has (spiritual) eyes to see reckon up the (pictogram of the) symbol of the beast that identifies him, for it is the symbol of a man. That symbol is

 

It should be obvious to the reader why we are warned not to add to or subtract from His Word.  The translators did both in Revelation 13; they subtracted the symbol of Jesus Christ and added the number 666 in its place.  This caused confusion and as Satan so planned deflects our attention away from his “son of perdition”.  People think “666” is the mark on the forehead when it that number has nothing at all to do with the topic.  That mark is the “X” symbol or monogram.  Now it requires “wisdom and insight” to figure it out due to uninspired translation errors. 

 

They who don’t have the mark (xes2) could not buy or sell

 

In Revelation 13:17 we see that those who do not take the mark of Jesus Christ (xes2) are prohibited from commerce within his realm.  Is this referring to some futuristic physical “mark” or biochip in our forehead and hand as is being taught today?  Or have we simply overlooked the obvious because we are unwilling to acknowledge the Jesus Christ is the beast and Christianity is the second beast?  If we simply take an honest look throughout history, we see that Christianity has outlawed “buying and selling” specifically for all those who do not bow down to the authority of The Pope who claims to be the Vicar of Christ (representative of Jesus Christ on Earth) and accept the specific mark on their forehead xes2

 

The Book of Revelation is misunderstood by many as applying only to the last 7 years of “Tribulation” when in fact is was given 2000 years ago and covers a 2000 year span of Christian dominance.

 

We see below the Mark of the Beast is the sign of the Cross xes2 and those who do not have that mark were forbidden to “buy or sell” throughout history:

 

Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary

 

the mark, or the name—Greek, "the mark (namely), the name of the beast." The mark may be, as in the case of the sealing of the saints in the forehead, not a visible mark, but symbolical of allegiance. So the sign of the cross in Popery. The Pope's interdict has often shut out the excommunicate from social and commercial intercourse.

 

Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

 

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark – "If any," observes Bishop Newton,

 

"dissent from the stated and authorized forms (of Christianity); they are condemned and excommunicated as heretics; and in consequence of that they are no longer suffered to buy or sell; they are interdicted from traffic and commerce, and all the benefits of civil society.

 

Roger Hoveden relates of William the Conqueror,

 

that he was so dutiful to the pope that he would not permit any one in his power to buy or sell any thing whom he found disobedient to the apostolic see (The Pope).

 

The canon of the council of Lateran, under Pope Alexander III.,

 

made against the Waldenses and Albigenses, enjoins, upon pain of anathema, that no man presume to entertain or cherish them in his house or land, or exercise traffic with them (that do not follow Papal authority).

 

The synod of Tours, in France, under the same pope, orders,

 

“under the like intermination, that no man should presume to receive or assist them, no, not so much as hold any communion with them, in selling or buying; that, being deprived of the comfort of humanity they may be compelled to repent of the error of their way."

 

It was ordered by a bull of Pope Martin the Fifth,

 

“that no contract should be made with such, and that they should not follow any business and merchandise: save he that had the mark; took the oath to be true to the pope, or made a public profession of the Popish religion: or the name of the beast; Papists, so called from the pope”

 

In the tenth and eleventh centuries the severity against the excommunicated was carried to so high a pitch, that nobody might come near them, not even their own wives, children, or servants; they forfeited all their natural legal rights and privileges, and were excluded from all kinds of offices.

 

Now that we know the identity of the first beast, that it is the “image of a man” we have elevated in our hearts as God above YHVH… and John identified that man by his mark, his monogram, and by a pictogram and it is Jesus Christ the serpent.  The second beast is easily identified… it is Christianity.  It is the religion that evolved around the first beast that causes the Earth to worship the first beast.  Remember that Christianity is the largest religion on Earth.  It is the very one that sites on 7 hills etc.

 

When you insert their true identities into passages in The Book of Revelation those passages come alive!

 

The First Beast is 666-as written in Greek- Jesus Christ the Second Beast is Christianity

 

We see in Revelation the rise of the first beast 666-as written in Greek(creation of Jesus Christ at the Council of Nicea) and then a second beast flows forth from the first beast (the religion of Christianity was created around the image of Jesus Christ) and causes the entire world to worship the image of the first beast Jesus Christ.  The very one John identified in Revelation 13 by name… XESus (Jesus) using his pictogram, his mark, and his monogram.  We are now going to further identify Jesus as the anti-Christ or Beast or False Messiah and Christianity as the second beast.

 

How Rome became the “seat” of the Babylonian Religious Cult

 

When Attalus, the Pontiff and King of Pergamos died, in B.C. 133, he bequeathed the headship of the "Babylonian Priesthood" to Rome. When the Etruscans came to Italy from Lydia, (the region of Pergamos), they brought with them the Babylonian religion and rites. They set up a Pontiff who was head of the priesthood. Later the Romans accepted this Pontiff as their civil ruler.  Julius Caesar was made Pontiff of the Etruscan Order in B.C. 74. In B.C. 63, he was made "Supreme Pontiff" of the "Babylonian Order," thus becoming heir to the rights and title of Attalus, Pontiff of Pergamos, who made Rome his heir by will.  Thus the first Roman Emperor became the head of the "Babylonian Priesthood," and Rome the successor of Babylon.  Each successor to Emperor from that point forward held the title Pontifus Maximus literally The High Priest of the Babylonian Cult of Sol Invictus which was simply another incarnation of Mithraism stemming from the worship of Tammuz in Babylon.  The Pope of Rome now carries forward that High Priesthood as Pontiff.

 

The Roman Empire began their official recognition of sun worship during the time of Aurelian when he instituted the cult of "Sol Invictus". There is virtually no difference between the cult of Sol Invictus and that of Mithraism or for that matter Catholicism/Christianity.  All later versions of The Mystery Religion of Babylon the Great Whore.  In the year 307 A.D. Emperor Diocletian, a Sun Worshipper, was involved in the dedication of a temple to Mithra, and was responsible for the burning of Holy Scripture (the Hebrew originals that is why we don’t have any today) which made it possible for later emperors to formulate Christianity, and thus began the Roman version of the "Universal the Christo-pagan Mystery Religion." After the rein of Diocletian, the Roman Emperor Constantine (the creator of modern day Christianity) maintained the title "Pontifus Maximus" the high priest of paganism, and remained a worshipper of Apollo (Apollo is Tammuz in the Greek culture). His coins were inscribed: "SOL INVICTO COMITI", which is interpreted as "Committed to the Invincible Sun". During his reign pagan Sun worship was blended with the worship of the True Creator (called syncretism), and officially titled "Christianity" by the (less than holy) Roman Empire and its' official church the (less than holy) catholic (universal) church.

 

Cybele, the Phrygian goddess, known to her followers as "the mother of god", was closely related to the worship of Mithra. Just as Mithraism was a man's religion, the worship of Cybele was practiced by women. The priests of Mithra were known as "Fathers" and the Priestesses of Cybele as "Mothers". After baptism into the Mysteries of Mithra, the initiate was marked on the forehead with an X. The sign of the cross formed by the elliptic and the celestial equator was one of the signs of Mithra. Sunday (Deis Solis), the day of the Sun, was considered by Mithraist a sacred day of rest. December 25th (the birthday of Mithra) was celebrated as the birth of the Sun, given birth by the "Queen of Heaven" - "Mother of god." The Mithraists celebrated a mithraic love feast. This feast consisted of loaves of bread decorated with crosses with wine, over which the priest pronounced a mystic formula. Mithra was considered mediator between god and man (does this sound like Jesus?).

 

We know Constantine created Hesus Horus Krishna as the god of the Roman Empire and that over time that name evolved into Jesus H. Christ.  We know Constantine created a totally new religion around Jesus Christ that abolished The Law of YHVH, changed The Festival of YHVH, changed The Sabbath of YHVH, changed The Passover of YHVH, and changed the name of The Messiah to give glory to Zeus.  Christianity then, as the second beast, caused through brute force (the inquisition) then through forced ignorance (the Dark Ages) the world, as it is the largest religion on Earth, to worship Hesus Horus Krishna (Jesus H. Christ) the first beast.

 
 

The First and Second Beats of Revelation

 

The first beast is “the beast of the sea” which is a reference to Dagon the Fish God who later became known as the sea serpent then the dragon.  This is the “god” of the Babylonian Religion.  Below is Dagon pictured “coming out of the sea”:

 

 

The first High Priest of Dagon was the King of Babylon Nimrod.  The High Priests of Dagon wore a large gutted fish over their head letting the body drape over them like a cape.

 

 

As the religion spread throughout cultures the garments of the High Priest of Dagon the Dragon evolved as well into the Mitre Hat with a long cape instead of an actual gutted fish.

 

The Pope today remains the Pontiff and High Priest of Dagon the Dragon:

 

 

It is Dagon the Dragon that gives the High Priest of Dagon known as The Pope of Rome his earthly throne and power.

 

 

The Pope is described in great detail in the book of Revelation:

Revelation 17:4

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication

 

We see the religion that grew up around 666-as written in GreekJesus Christ is literally the worship of the dragon or Dagon.  It would be The Beast of the Earth.  The most abominable “beast” to YHVH is the pig.
 

The name Jesus can be broken down into its Latin prefix Je which means “earth” and Latin suffix sus which means “pig”.   Remember Jesus is a LATIN name not Hebrew.

The name Jesus literally cries out “abominable pig (beast) of the earth” and he is the god of the second beast in Revelation 13 - 666-as written in Greek.  Easter is the sacrifice of a pig to Nimrod who became the sungod Ba’al which means The LORD and later Zeus as he is known in Greek Pantheon.
 

Jesus Christ is the “anti” Messiah

 

XESsus (666-as written in Greek), IHS, XS, X… a.k.a Jesus Christ is the false messiah:

 

·       Jesus is the earthly pig who came in the name of Zeus - YAHshua came in the name of YAHweh and is The Salvation of Yahuah

·       Jesus abolished the law - Yahusha transposed The Law to The Kingdom of YHVH

·       Jesus is the pig sacrifice of Ishtar (Easter) – Yahusha is The Passover Lamb of YHVH

·       Jesus’ holy day is Dias Solis (day of the sungod) – Yahusha is king of the Sabbath and kept the 4th Commandment

·       Jesus is God incarnate – Yahusha is the first born son of YHVH

·       Jesus’ holy days are the Babylonian festivals – Yahusha kept the Festivals of YHVH

·       Jesus was born on in winter December 25 the Babylonian festival of the “rebirth of the sun” – Yahusha was born on the Feast of Tabernacles in Fall

 

Below I am going to break down Revelation Chapter 13 in detail.  If you haven’t read my books Babylon – The Religion of the Beast and Christianity – The Great Deception now would be a very good time to review them as I prove all of this in great detail!

 
 

True meaning of Revelation Chapter 13

 

Revelation 13

13 The dragon (Dagon the Fish God, later known as the Dragon) stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea

Babylon worshipped Dagon known as the Dragon coming out of the sea who is half fish and half man.  Rev. 13:1 is a direct reference to Dagon, see Chapter 1 in my book Christianity – The Great Deception. Below I provide a small excerpt.  Dagon evolved over time and many cultures as follows ending up as the Dragon:

The Pope is the High Priest of Dagon and the Spirit of Dagon (the dragon) is the Spirit behind Christianity. 

This “Dragon in the Sea or DAGON the Fish God” called leviathan in scripture was worshipped by those in ancient Babylon and associated with Nimrod the first High Priest of Dagon.  Worship of Dagon was passed down after YHVH confused the languages and scattered humanity across the globe.  It was this religion that was prevalent and continued at the time Rome destroyed Jerusalem.  It was this religion of Dagon that permeated the high priestly ranks of paganism and was the foundation of The Catholic Church which even today continues to wear the priestly garments of Dagon the Dragon:

Revelation 17:4

And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication

 

 

 

 

Now back to Revelation Chapter 13

2 … The dragon (Religion of Dagon, The Pope is The High Priest of Dagon) gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority... 4

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

People worshiped the dragon (unknowingly) because he had given authority to the beast (by worshipping Jesus you are actually worshipping the dragon and following the commands of The High Priest of Dagon, the Popes.  Every fundamental doctrine of all Christian Churches are by Papal Decree), and they also worshiped the beast (666-as written in Greeka.k.a Jesus Christ) and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”

5 The beast (666-as written in Greeka.k.a Jesus Christ) was given a mouth (The Pope is Jesus’ representative on Earth known as The Vicar of Christ and speaks for him) to utter proud words (that he has abolished The Law, he changed The Sabbath to his holy day Sunday, he changed Passover to Easter) and blasphemies (that Jesus is god incarnate) and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. 6 It opened its mouth to blaspheme God (saying YHVH is not One but a Trinity and Jesus is God incarnate), and to slander his name (calling YHVH “the LORD” which is Ba’al. Changing the name of Yahusha which means “Yahuah is Salvation” to Jesus which means Hail Zeus) and his dwelling place (made Rome the eternal city of God) and those who live in heaven (saying that all those in the Bible who kept The Law of YHVH and His Sabbaths and Festivals were in error and trying through legalism to work their way to heaven). 7 It was given power to wage war against YHVH’s holy people and to conquer them (the inquisition, the Roman/Jewish Wars, the Crusades, the Holocaust etc.). And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 8 All inhabitants of the earth will (eventually) worship the beast (Christianity is the largest religion on Earth)—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world (the 3 entries in The Book of Life are that 1. we have The Seal -  2. we display The Sign -  3. we are Delivered by the blood of The Lamb.  We are literally signed, sealed, and delivered into The Kingdom of YHVH.  Those with these witnesses cannot fall for this pagan lie of Christianity because our frontal lobes have been given the protective SEAL over that part of our mind that enables us to recognize deception.)

The Beast out of the Earth

 

11 Then I saw another beast (Christianity), coming out of the earth (Je in Latin is “earth” or “mother earth”.  The second beast is a religion flowing forth from 666-as written in Greekaka Jesus Christ). He (the leader of this religion, The Pope the False Prophet of 666-as written in Greek) had two horns like a lamb (Miter Hat), but he spoke like a dragon (the Spirit of Dagon).

 

It is Dagon the Dragon that is the spiritual source behind the Catholic/Christian Churches based in Rome (any Sunday / Christmas / Easter / Trinity / Jesus church). 

 


 

The Pope and priesthood of the Catholic Church are the high priest and priesthood of Dagon the Dragon in disguise (not a very good disguise actually):

 

 

 

12 He (the Pope, High Priest of Christianity) exercised all the authority (Vicar of Christ) of the first beast (666-as written in Greeka.k.a Jesus Christ) on his behalf (Authority of the Church doctrine), and (Christianity the second beast) made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast (666-as written in Greeka.k.a Jesus Christ), whose fatal wound had been healed (the beast 666-as written in Greekis based on the Messiah’s life but it is a FALSE image of Yahusha). 13 And he (second beast/Christianity) performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men. 14 Because of the signs (only a wicked and adulterous generation require a “sign” Matt. 16:4) he (Christianity) was given power to do on behalf of the first beast (666-as written in GreekJesus Christ), he (Christianity) deceived the inhabitants of the earth (the largest religion on Earth is Christianity). He (Christianity) ordered them (humanity) to set up an image (of 666-as written in Greekin The Temple of YHVH – we “invite Jesus into our hearts”) in honor of the beast (666-as written in GreekJesus Christ) who was wounded by the sword and yet lived (another reference to Jesus being a false image of Yahusha in order to deceive). 15 He (second Beast/Christianity) was given power to give breath (Spirit of the False Messiah and Spirit of Error) to the image of the first beast (666-as written in GreekJesus Christ), so that it could speak (to the hearts of man) and cause all who refused to worship the image (of 666-as written in GreekJesus) to be killed (the destruction of The 2nd Temple, the Roman/Jewish wars, and then once Christianity was created… the inquisition and countless crusades... The Catholic Church was instrumental in The Holocaust.  Christianity is by a long shot the bloodiest religion in the history of the world killing literally millions upon millions of people since its inception.  Killing multitudes of millions in “Jesus Name”).
 

16 It (Christianity) also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark (xes2) on their right hands or on their foreheads,

 

It was ordered by a bull of Pope Martin the Fifth,

 

“that no contract should be made with such, and that they should not follow any business and merchandise: save he that had the mark; took the oath to be true to the pope, or made a public profession of the Popish religion: or the name of the beast; Papists, so called from the pope”

 

The Mark of Jesus is “X” as in X-mas which is drawn on the forehead of Christians while reciting “in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost” and sealing the mind with Trinity:

 

 

17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark (xes2),

 

Bishop Newton,

 

"dissent from the stated and authorized forms (of Christianity); they are condemned and excommunicated as heretics; and in consequence of that they are no longer suffered to buy or sell; they are interdicted from traffic and commerce, and all the benefits of civil society.

 

which is the name of the beast; or the symbol of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom (spiritual understanding of the mind). Let the person who has (spiritual) insight reckon up the symbol of the beast that identifies him, for it is the symbol of a man. That symbol (mark, monogram, pictogram) is 666-as written in Greek(the 666-as written in Greeksymbol uniquely identifies both Jesus and Christ it is the only symbol that is used for XESus, and Christos, and the serpent xes3).
 

In verse 15 above

 

“He (second Beast/Christianity) was given power to give breath (Spirit of the False Messiah and Spirit of Error) to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak (to the hearts of man) and cause all who refused to worship the image (of Jesus Christ) to be killed”

 

we see a reference to “give breath” which is the word Pneuma or “spirit”.  I clearly defined The Spirit of the False Messiah and The Spirit of Error in this book.  Let’s review it so we let scripture interpret scripture.

 

The Spirit of Error and The Spirit of The False Messiah

 

The Spirit of the False Messiah

 

Anyone who elevates the image of a man known by his monogram 666-as written in Greeki.e. Hesus Horus Krishna (Jesus H. Christ) in their hearts as God above YHVH will be given over by YHVH to believe a lie.  That very lie is that The Law has been abolished by the incarnation of God in the image 666-as written in Greekof Jesus H. Christ.  The Spirit of The Anti-Christ is anyone who denies that Yahusha was a mere man (came in the flesh):

 

1 John 4

 

4 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from YHVH, because many false prophets have gone out into the world (claiming to be the incarnation of God). 2 By this you know the Spirit of YHVH: every spirit that confesses that Messiah Yahusha has come in the flesh (a man) is from YHVH; 3 and every spirit that does not confess Yahusha has come in the flesh (but says Yahusha is YHVH or The Trinity) is not from YHVH; this is the spirit of the antichrist (or False Messiah.  The False Messiah is an image of a man worshipped above YHVH as God) … 12 No one has seen YHVH at any time! (Because Yahusha is not YHVH in the flesh or a demi-god).

 

Anyone who elevates the false image of Yahusha (known as Jesus) into a God in their heart believing in the incarnation has The Spirit of The Anti-Christ.  They will be given over to a depraved mind which is The Spirit of Error.
 

The Spirit of Error

 

The Spirit of Error is given to all of those who commit this abomination and elevate the image of Jesus in their hearts as God.  That Spirit of Error is defined as “abolishing the law” i.e. do not keep the commandments of YHVH.

 

2 John 7 - Beware of Antichrist Deceivers

 

7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Yahusha the Messiah as coming in the flesh (but rather confess Jesus is God in the flesh). This is a deceiver and an antichrist. (The Spirit of the False Messiah) 8 Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. 9 Whoever transgresses (The Law of YHVH) and does not abide in the doctrine of the Messiah (that he did not come to abolish The Law) does not have (the Spirit of) YHVH (they have The Spirit of Error). He who abides in the doctrine of the Messiah (that not one Jot or Tittle of The Law has been abolished) has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine (but brings a Trinitarian lie and teaches unrighteousness as truth see Romans 1:18 that The Law was abolished), do not receive him into your house nor greet him; 11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds (breaking of The Law).

 
 

Summary

 

The identity of The False Messiah was hidden by YHVH and not given to either the prophet Daniel or the prophet John. 

 

Revelation 10

 

4 Now when the seven thunders uttered their voices, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and do not write them.” And they were hidden until the very end of time and given to men of Wisdom risen up for the appointed time.

 

Daniel 12

4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end8 I heard, but I did not understand. So I asked, “My lord, what will the outcome of all this be?” 9 He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end.

YHVH’s plan still required thousands of years to play out.  If the mysteries explained in this chapter were revealed too early then Jesus Christ would have never been able to deceive the Earth as YHVH had planned.  Once you unravel these mysteries in Daniel and Revelation Jesus Christ stands out as the only “image of a man” in human history that qualifies.  The symbol John saw is written all over Christianity as the symbol that identifies Jesus Christ.
