Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door.
Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that it is near, right at the door.
Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near.
And he told them a parable: ‘Look at the fig tree, and all the trees. As soon as they come out in leaf, you see for yourselves and know that the summer is already near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all has taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man (Lk. 21:29-35, ESV).
False Prophet: Revelation 13:11-17. (The world’s most ‘trusted social influencer.’)
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.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
The “Document on Human Fraternity” blurs the distinction and changes the meaning of fraternity, extending it to the relationships between peoples of different religions, as if Muslims and Christians are “brothers and sisters” praying to the same God.
Roman Catholicism legitimizes prayers to other deities or religious ideals, silencing the prophetic message of Scripture that we either serve the biblical God or idols. It fails to bear witness to the claims of Jesus Christ as the God-man who came to save those who believe in him, and instead changes the meaning of fraternity by stretching it indiscriminately to all humanity, rather than believers in Jesus only. In so doing, the tenets of the biblical faith are trampled on.
This is a further move away from biblical Christianity. Not being anchored in Scripture alone, not being committed to Christ alone, Roman Catholicism is anxious to extend its ever-expanding catholicity (i.e. all-encompassing embracement) in all directions, even those clearly contrary to the basics of the Christian faith.
Revelation 17:1-9. Mystery Religion in Babylon (NEOM). False religion. NEOM is the great city of many peoples and false (non-Christian) religions that sits on seven (7) mountains which is the center of spiritual humanism, abominations, fornications, blasphemies and filthiness. Religious coexistence and acceptance of all non-Christian religions, the brotherhood, fraternity of cultural inclusivity, secular peace, tolerance, rejection of extremism, religious dialogue, social goals, ecology and salvation by human efforts and agreements. A demonic mix of compromised, false Christianity (Catholicism) with moderate Islam that accepts other false religions like Hinduism, Buddhism, Humanism, (‘isms’). Everything but the true worship and acknowledgement of Christ and his offer of salvation through the shedding of his blood on the cross, and his forgiveness of our sins through his death and resurrection. Christ is completely ignored and rejected in the religious soup-from-hell or the mystery religion that is served in the great end-times restaurant known as Babylon (NEOM). False prophet proclaims “ALL religions are willed by God.”
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever
Seven-fold Reference to the Beast’s Mark/Name/Number Required by the False Prophet:
- … “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads.” (Rev. 13:16). (Emphasis added).

- … “And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.” (Rev. 15:2). (Emphasis added).
- … “And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.” (Rev. 16:2). (Emphasis added).
- … “ And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image.

- … “And I saw the thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgement was given unto them: and I saw souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hand; and they live and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” (Rev. 20:4). (Emphasis added).
Commentary: The false prophet causes those who dwell on the earth to do a lot of bad things. The beast/antichrist uses marks to identify those who belong to his evil kingdom. The mark of the beast is physically apparent on the forehead or right hand of his citizens. What this mark will look like is a matter of debate and conjecture. It could be a stamp using non-removable die, a tattoo, or even a physical blemish that results from genetic manipulation. Cattle are often marked or branded by their ranchers or owners for identification. The process of cattle branding uses extremly hot fire to heat up a metal die or stamp (at the end of a long metal pole). The metal stamp is heated until the point of being red hot (glowing), or hot enough to burn a mark, initials or emblem into the leathery, thick skin of the cattle. This leaves a mark deep enough, that the cattle cannot outgrow the rancher’s mark of ownership. They permanently belong to him, until they are sold and slaughtered. By the beast/antichrist using a mark to identify his ownership of unredeemed souls, he views them as cattle…ready for the slaughterhouse of hell. The marking of unredeemed souls compares very differently to the seals or sealing used by God on those redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ. (Rev. 3:12, 7:3-4, 7:5-8, 14:1).
Historically, a seal was placed by a king on a document to authenticate the document’s origin and ownership. In many cases, wax would be heated to the point of melting and dripped onto the document’s edges. As the wax was drying, the king would use a signet ring or royal stamp to put his initials, mark, or royal crest (emblem) into the wax. As long as the seal was not broken, the person receiving the official document, sealed and in tact, immediately knew who sent the document and that it was not tampered with. The recipient could then be assured of the document’s authenticity and accuracy. God applies his seal of ownership to redeemed souls, through Jesus Christ. We have a royal seal of the spirit as opposed to the physical marking characterized by the antichrist. We have been spared a bloody slaughtering, as Christ was already bloodily slaughered on the cross for our behalf. By contrast, the cattle owned by the antichrist/beast will experience a bloody slaughtering at Armeggedon. (Rev. 14:20 … “blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hudred furlongs). The mark of the antichrist/beast indicates the corrupted physical and spiritual image of those he owns, whereas, the seal of God, through Jesus Christ, indicates our imager status as belonging to God and of being citizens of heaven and the New Jersusalem.
I would rather have the loving, royal seal of God, given to us by Christ, in my heart and head…than to have an ugly, stamp forced or burned onto my forehead or hand. Once again, in his Revelation to John, the Apostle, Jesus mentions seven (7) times that the mark of the beast will lead to eternal damnation. He cares enough about all of us, to keep repeating himself and reminding us, over and over. Unfortunately, there will be millions (or billions) who ignore or don’t care about his warnings and offer of salvation. The beast/antichrist forces his mark on souls, whereas Jesus, gives us his mark. He doesn’t force himself on anyone who doesn’t’ want to be idenfied with him or his kingdom. Just as Jesus indicates what happens to “those who take the mark of the beast” (white throne judgement, lake of fire), He also indicates what happens to “those who do not take the mark of the beast”. We are victorious, live and reign with Christ for one thousand years, have harps of God, stand on a sea of glass, sit on thrones. What a contrast in eternal existence!
Seven-fold Evils of the False Prophet:
… “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. And he exerciseth all the power of first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.” (Rev. 13:11-13). (Emphasis added).
… “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” (Rev. 13:14-15). (Emphasis added).
…. “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom, Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of man; and his number is Six hundred three-score and six.” (Rev. 13:16-18). (Emphasis added).
- Exercises all the demonic power of the antichrist. (Rev. 13:12)
- Causes people on the earth to worship the beast/antichrist. (Rev. 13:12)
- Deceives those on earth by false miracles or wonders, but is only able to do these when the antichrist is present. (Rev. 13:13-14)
- Requires people on earth to build an image of the beast/antichrist. (Rev. 13:14)
- Gives false life to the man-made image enabling it to speak. (Rev. 13:15)
- Forces all people to receive the antichrist’s mark of ownership in their forehead or right hand, forces buying and selling to be contingent upon having this mark. Causes the martyrdom of those not willing to worship the beast or his image. (Rev. 13:15-17)
- Causes people on earth to worship the beast’s image. (Rev. 13:15)
Commentary: The False Prophet is the Antichrist’s ‘right hand’ man, propaganda minister, and #1 religious cheerleader, in an all-in-one package. A yes man of the most evil sort. Adolf Hitler had very similar people operating in this capacity during his evil attempt to enslave the world. The False Prophet will be demonically or satanically inspired to perform the deceit and false miracles that lead the weak-minded and spiritually dead to falsely worship the beast/antichrist. Interestingly, the False Prophet can only conduct these false miracles when he is in sight/proximity to the beast. This indicates that Satan’s power is not omnipresent, but can only be conveyed to a willing participant within close proximity to Satan. Whereas God’s power is unlimited by time and space, Satan’s power is not and is strictly limited. Just as Hitler forced the Jews to take a tattoo or mark of the Star of David, for identification, so too will the beast/antichrist force citizens to take his mark for identification. Additionally, Hitler forced Jews to have a number tattooed on them in concentration camps, for more detailed recognition and identification. Scripture continues to tell us that the Antichrist/Beast will also force the number of his name to be forced onto people. Impossible you say? See my detailed analysis of the Sevenfold Markings by the Beast/Antichrist. The False Prophet is also the ringleader to get men to make a false image(s) of the beast and to have men worship it. Impossible you think? Read my detailed analysis on the Sevenfold Image of the Beast. The False Prophet is the enabler of spiritual fornication on a global, worldwide scale all with the endorsement, approval, sanctioning and blessing from the Beast. Satan gives the False Prophet enough power, through the beast/antichrist, to ensure this satanic abomination is accomplished.
British bishop calls for annual celebration of Pope Francis’ Abu Dhabi declaration
The Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, which was co-signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University, Ahmad al-Tayyeb on February 4, 2019 and states that ‘the diversity of religions’ are ‘willed by God in His wisdom.’
“Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
Wed Feb 3, 2021 LifeSiteNews
GLASGOW, Scotland, February 3, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — A bishop in Scotland has said that he hopes there will be an annual celebration of the 2019 Abu Dhabi document, co-signed by Pope Francis and a Muslim imam, which states that “the diversity of religions” are “willed by God in His wisdom.”
Bishop Brian McGee of the diocese of Argyll, said that he hoped the Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, which was co-signed by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University, Ahmad al-Tayyeb on February 4, 2019, could be celebrated every year on February 4, which has been designated the International Day of Human Fraternity by the United Nations. (aka ‘Mystery Religion’, aka ‘One World Religion.’)
“That way it can be a bridge between the Holocaust Memorial Day at the end of January, and Interfaith Harmony Week in the first week of February,” McGee said before playing an Arabic “message of support” from Mohamed Mahmoud Abdel Salam, the Secretary-General of the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity. (Night Watchman Note; Islam – ‘those who worship the dragon and SOON the BEAST.’)
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
Five (5) references to ‘beast.’ 5 denotes satanic influence over evil men.
McGee was speaking at an online conference sponsored by the Scottish Catholic Bishops Conference and the Ahl Al Bait Society earlier this week, which was also attended by retired Cardinal Michael Fitzgerald and by the Muslim scholar, Sheik Mohammad Ali Shomali of Iran.
The online meeting, which attracted over 185 participants, included an introduction by Bishop Brian McGee, papers by Fitzgerald and Shomali, a brief exchange of remarks between the cardinal and the Muslim scholar, and questions from the virtual audience, read by moderator Sister Isabel Smyth, Secretary of the Scottish Bishops’ Committee for Interreligious Dialogue.
Caridnal Fitzgerald said during his speech that, in his view, the human fraternity document is “fully in agreement with the declaration Nostra aetate of Vatican II.”
‘Not everybody has been in agreement with this Document on Human Fraternity’
“Some people have criticized Pope Francis for a document that is ‘social’, they say, rather than theological,” Fitzgerald noted.
“And it is true that this document is geared more to cooperation in practical matters than to a deepening of theological understanding,” he conceded.
“And yet it is based on a theological understanding of creation, and sees the creative acts of God as the foundation for the fraternity that it desires to promote.”
Fitzgerald told the audience that the human fraternity document is “courageous, wide-ranging, realistic, but also a work in progress.” (human ‘creation’, not divine creation).
“I think that the two leaders who signed this document have had the courage to engage with one another,” he said, before giving an overview of the contemporary history of dialogue between the Holy See and Muslim scholars. The talks were interrupted by the “commotion among Muslims” [inspired by reports concerning] Benedict XVI’s lecture in Regensburg. However, Ahmed Mohamed Ahmed El-Tayeb of Al-Azar went to Rome to meet Pope Francis in 2017, (2017 to 2027 = 10 years, 2017 to 2024 = SEVEN (7) YEARS) the first imam to go to Vatican City to meet a pope, and Pope Francis became the first pontiff to set foot on the Arabian Peninsula when he went to Abu Dhabi in 2019.
“So these two religious leaders have shown that they were ready to engage the members of their respective religions in discussion and action together though neither of them would be surprised at meeting with opposition,” the Cardinal continued.
The cardinal did not detail the objections to the Abu Dhabi declaration, but chief among them was resistance to its statement that God willed a “diversity of religions.” Pope Francis later informally qualified this statement by saying that Scholastic theologians referred to God’s “permissive will” to account for the existence of many faiths.
(Night Watchman Note; God does not ‘will’ false, evil religions. He sent Christ to abolish the Dragon’s lies and save humanity.)
“Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6). (This statement by Christ indicates that He does ‘NOT’ will other religions, but that He is the ‘only’ way … and not through other lies, false religions or false, evil doctrines or secular human efforts of FIVE (5) ‘peace, fraternity, coexistence, inter-religious dialogue or one world government’.)
The Document on Human Fraternity is “wide-ranging” in that it speaks about rights, duties, freedom of belief in expression and practise, extremism, including terrorism, and protection of places of worship, Fitzgerald continued. (‘Protection of places of worship’ ONLY lasts 3.5 years and then is destroyed, consumed by fire at the midpoint of the Tribulation to make way for the Antichrist).
It is also all-embracing, and no-one is excluded, he added. (Satan’s spiritual ‘bait-and-switch plan to usher in the Antichrist.)
“Fraternity is based not on religious belonging but a more fundamental belonging to the human family as such,” the cardinal said.
“And I would say as a Catholic that this is fully in agreement with the declaration Nostra aetate of Vatican II.”
He noted that the wide scope of the human fraternity document leads to a “certain vagueness” (deception) and that it does not provide definitions of such concepts as “authentic teaching”, “full citizenship,” and “unproductive discussions.”
However, he praised the human fraternity document for its realism, noting that it takes into account FIVE (5) change, constant conflict, inequality, terrorism, extremism “in all its forms”, and particularly the use of religion to incite violence and war. The cardinal blamed the media for not highlighting Muslim condemnation of terrorist acts.
Fitzgerald described the human fraternity document as “a proposal and a project” and said that it is an “invitation” to fraternity and reconciliation between all believers and unbelievers. He touched also on the creation of the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity, noting that a Jewish rabbi has been included.
“… [A]ll of us [are invited] to adopt a culture of dialogue, to engage in mutual cooperation, and to foster reciprocal understanding,” he concluded.
Cardinal Fitzgerald has a doctorate in theology? from the Gregorian University in Rome and a B.A. in Arabic from the School of Oriental and African Studies at the University of London. In 1991, he was made a bishop by St. John Paul II, and in 2002, he was appointed president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue and “raised to the rank of Archbishop”, said Sister Isabelle.
In 2006, Fitzgerald was made Apostolic Nuncio in Egypt, and there has been speculation in The Tablet that he had essentially been expelled from Rome by Benedict XVI. He retired from diplomatic service in 2012. While living in Liverpool, he was made a Cardinal in 2019 by Pope Francis.
“I don’t know if you’re told why you’re created a cardinal,” Sister Isabel told the prelate, “but we all think it’s in recognition of your great work in not just Christian-Muslim relations, but also in interreligious dialogue.”
Fratelli tutti as “expansion” of the Abu Dhabi document
Sheik Shomali has a doctorate in philosophy? from the University of Manchester and is the founding director of the International Institute of Islamic Studies in Qom, Iran. He is the editor-in-chief of two journals. He has participated in interreligious dialogue for over 20 years and written several books.
Shomali said that the human fraternity document was something that everyone could appreciate because it was “no longer just theological reflection.” An advantage of the human fraternity document, he said, was that it “managed to go beyond doctrinal boundaries (divine law) and reach all major issues that we as human beings face, and all the challenges that we have.”
The Muslim scholar said that there has been increasing appreciation of the human fraternity document since it was signed, and both signers have “built upon it.” The establishment of the Higher Committee for Human Fraternity is one example, and the May 14, 2020 Day of Fasting, Prayer and Charitable Works as a response to the pandemic is another. There was also the publication of Fratelli tutti, which the Grand Imam called “an extension of the Document on Human Fraternity.” Shomali agreed with this definition.
“What made me very happy is that the encyclical showed that Pope Francis finds in the core of his mission the same thing that he said in the document that is signed by a Muslim leader,” he said. (Islam; ‘those who worship the dragon and SOON the BEAST.’)
Shomali said that the great contemporary challenge is not a rivalry between Christianity and Islam but rather “families breaking down”, faith being abandoned, and “lots of issues relating to morality.” Therefore, he really appreciated that the human fraternity document identified common problems “in a spirit of fraternity or competition.” It showed that the Pope, Grand Imam and their “institutions” could go beyond “ethnic, cultural and even doctrinal differences and boundaries and turn towards the face of God/.”
(FIVE (5) Dragon, Beast, Allah, Mohammed, Mujaddid DOES NOT EQUAL the ‘Father, Son and Holy Spirit’ – the TRUE Godhead Trinity.)
The Muslim scholar said that the human fraternity document has a universal perspective “that can truly be a meeting point” for Islam, Christianity, other faiths and even to those of no faith. (aka ‘Mystery Religion Babylon, aka ‘One World Religion.’)
“If we stay tuned to the true nation of human beings, we realize that we have a responsibility to work together to solve the painful problems that afflict us,” Shomali said.
Shomali also commented on the human fraternity document’s condemnation of the use of religion to excuse violence.
“The document very clearly says that God does not need anyone to use His name to legitimize violence and cover up their interest and thirst for power,” he said.
Aileen Campbell, Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Local Government, also took part, saying that the Scottish [Scottish National Party] Government is “committed to inclusiveness and tolerance.”
“We’re a country of only five (5) million, so it makes sense that what we do, we do it together,” she said.
Reflecting on “challenges” of “intolerance and hate” in Scotland, Campbell said that the Government needs to use the “privileged position” that they have to call out “hate” and to use their leadership roles to “foster solidarity and peace.”
The ruling Scottish National Party has promoted a new hate crimes bill that many Christians believe will restrict their freedom of religion, and even criminalize expression of passages of both Scripture and the Catechism.
Campbell was warmly thanked by Sister Isabel, who assured her that the statements on the human fraternity document are very similar to the sentiments she had expressed.
“Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
Destruction of ‘Mystery Religion’, 3.5 years into the 7 year tribulation:
Ten (10) Evil Horns/Crowns (Kings) of the Beast’s Empire:
- … “And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” (Rev. 12:3). (Emphasis added).
- … “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” (Rev. 13:1). (Emphasis added).
- … “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” (Rev. 17:3). (Emphasis added).
- … “And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman and beast that carrieth her, which hat the seven heads and ten horns.” (Rev. 17:7). (Emphasis added).
- … “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power of kings one hour with the beast.” (Rev. 17:12). (Emphasis added).
- … “And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.” (Rev. 17:16). (Emphasis added).
Commentary: These 6 (six) verses describe the political and military backbone of the beast’s evil empire. The 10 (ten) kings are a consortium of political leaders that collectively give up their political and military sovereignty to the beast/antichrist. In exchange, he grants them “power as a king.” It is commonly believed that these ten political leaders who will be given “power as kings for one hour” will come from what is currently represented as the European region. The above reference in verse 17:12-14 indicates that these ten (10) political leaders act in a collective unison (with one mind), and give up their political and military might (power and strength) to the beast (based upon the will of God). This verse also continues on to indicate that these kings “for one hour” are active military participants against Jesus Christ on the Lord’s Day at the battle of Armageddon. Two verses reference the influence that these 10 (ten) kings have on Mystery Religion Babylon. Verse 17:7 indicates that these kings act in collective unison and purpose in supporting (and enforcing) the worldwide acceptance of the whore, Mystery Religion Babylon for 3 ½ years. They are the “muscle of the means” or the part of the beast that supports (carries) the domination of the mystery religion worldwide. The last reference, verses 17:16-17, indicate that midway through the Tribulation, these ten (10) kings turn on and destroy the whore, the Mystery Religion of Babylon.
Why would these ten (10) kings, who have worked for 3 ½ years to build up and support the whore, the worldwide mystery religion system, suddenly turn on her to “make her desolate and naked and shall eat her flesh and burn her with fire?” The answer lies in the religious or spiritual ‘bait-n-switch’ that Satan pulls off on evil mankind. At the beginning of the Tribulation, to gain easy acceptance and domination over the world’s peoples, Satan allows them to worship anything and everything (but God and Jesus Christ) and to also enforce his worship through the beast/antichrist and false prophet. The worship of anything and everything (but God and Jesus Christ) is known as Mystery Religion Babylon, which also includes Satanic and Islamic worship. Halfway (3 ½ years) into the Tribulation, Satan physically indwells the beast and commits the “Abomination of Desolation” in the rebuilt Jewish Temple. The satanically indwelt beast places himself in the holiest part of the rebuilt temple and declares himself to be God and demands to be worshipped directly as such, under the pain of death and beheading of not doing so. As a result, men who have taken the mark of the beast and perhaps have been worshipping idols of gold or silver, have no choice but to give up their mystery religion and are forced to worship Satan/beast exclusively. Most of those deceived men who have already been worshipping the beast and his image will have no problem in continuing to worship the satanically indwelt beast. Their worship will just be more of the same, except that Satan is now the direct object or recipient of their worship. Conversely, those men who were actively participating in the mystery religion of worshipping whatever they wanted, now have to turn their worship exclusively to Satan. Thus, Satan has effectively pulled-off a successful religious ‘bait-n-switch’ of historical proportions. Evil men thought they could get away with chasing whatever they wanted, and now, Satan/beast has a firm grasp of them ‘bait-hook-line-sinker.’ Evil men have to worship him, they are forced to worship him under threat of death. They have physically and satanically defiled themselves through taking the beast’s mark (or name, number) and thus, they have given themselves over totally, completely and whole heartedly to the beast’s kingdom and system. Now, the whole mystery religion system has been destroyed “burned with fire, flesh consumed,” and replaced with the singular, exclusive worship of Satan. The ten (10) kings that helped carry the whore throughout the whole world, and conversely, helped destroy her when the time was right and dictated by Satan. Just as the beast and false prophet are puppets of Satan, the 10 (ten) kings are the ‘puppet thugs’ or ‘heavy muscle goons’ that carry the beast’s system and mystery religion (for 3 ½ years) throughout the world.
Ten (10) is a doubling of Satan’s evil number of 5 (five), (5×2=10). In the context of God’s divine mathematics, these “kings for an hour with the beast” represent a double portion of Satanic evil or worldly strength. 10 (ten) also represents a doubling of the satanically empowered beast’s kingdom, or a doubling of any kind of Satan’s influence.

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:
The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).
C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).
. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).
. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).
. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).
. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).
. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).
. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).
. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).
. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).
