A brief introduction before you read each ‘article or excerpt’:
Disclaimer. I make ‘no claim’ or take no responsibility for the following comments expressed by Mr. Joel C. Rosenberg. They are his statements and insights, not mine. However, I ‘parsed’ Mr. Rosenberg’s entire book, ‘Enemies and Allies’, which is a profound testimony (and evidence) for God’s prophecies as mentioned throughout the Bible, regarding the ‘end times’ and ‘7 year tribulation period.’ I doubt that he knows this. As such, I felt motivated to share the following excerpts that are directly related to these prophecies. I will provide the appropriate biblical context and verses for each ‘category’ related to MbS’s ‘involvement’. This should prove beyond a shadow of any doubt, just where we are in terms of the rapture, harpazo, redemption, ‘twinkling of an eye’ or the ‘catching up / falling away.’ As I have said several times previously, our correct focus should be on Jesus Christ. However, I feel motivated to present writing, observations and ‘truth’s about the Beast, his ‘SEAT’ (Neom) and all of his related associations around the world. Why? Simply to warn the church, at least those who will listen and those who are empowered by the Holy Spirit to discern the truth to these things. I take no reward, or glory in showing or knowing or revealing these things. The glory belongs to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. They are the ones ‘revealing’ these findings to show the impeccable truth of God’s words and the accuracy of the ancient prophet’s prophecies. The second reason to show and reveal these things is simple. ‘For when you see these things come to pass, look up for your redemption draws nigh, give comfort to one another with these words.’ God has allowed Christ’s Bride or True Church to still be on earth for the past four years (almost to the date) since the GREAT Revelation 12 Sign regarding the rapture or ‘catching up’ of Christians or the ‘baby’ depicted in the sign. This occurred on September 23, 2017. Just a few days ago marked September 23, 2021. Four (4) yeas since ‘the sign’ was revealed in the heavens. I wrote this commentary over the week of September 23, 2021. Imagine that!
Mr. Rosenberg is most likely the ‘best’ human witness on earth to provide ‘proof’ of the ‘insider workings’ of these various prophetic developments. I surmise that God enabled Mr. Rosenberg to be present and in person to witness and write his comments and views to help provide ‘proof’ as to the times we live in. It just takes someone to discern them, organize them, and put them into the proper biblical context. Prayerfully, I hope that I am able to do justice to the task in a truthful and empowered way. Jesus will be the judge of not only what I write, but also of what others have written. That is the way it is.
Although I sincerely doubt Mr. Rosenberg knows who I am, I nonetheless would like to thank him for what he courageously shares. However, I doubt that he is aware of the role he is playing because his focus in clearly on Israel and her developments prior to the onset of Jacob’s week. I am not disparaging Mr. Rosenberg, nor am I critical. Without his witness, the world would be less aware. Unfortunately, as I have painfully written, the week of Jacob’s trouble is about to start and the ‘faith and trust and hope’ that the Jews are placing in MbS are extremely misplaced. Israel has obviously no idea, and has been blinded, as to who their political and military ‘confirmer’ is. I will not belabor the point here.
Ultimately, each of us has to make our own individual decisions as to whether or not these things are true. The Holy Spirit will help you. The Holy Spirit tells you to test or discern the spirit of what is being said, against God’s word in scripture. You have to make your own decision, just like you had to make your own decision to accept God’s and Jesus’ forgiveness of your sins, through your acceptance of Christ, the shedding of his blood and through his resurrection.
Since the following ‘analysis’ could become burdensomely large, I will try to provide the most direct and well known biblical references to each topic. If you choose to research these topics in greater detail for yourself, you are welcome to read my other blogs that obviously provide more details than what I will share below. The following is a 70,000 foot view of what I feel moved to in discerning the ‘signs of the times’ in a more specific way related to the coming Man of Lawlessness, the Son of Perdition, the Wicked One. You can agree or disagree, the choice is yours. If you are intrigued, do your own ‘homework’ or research, perhaps you will come to the same conclusion, get your life in order and become excited to meet our Lord Jesus Christ.

Excerpts from Joel C. Rosenberg’s just released book ‘Enemies and Allies.’ His ‘Witness’ of MbS’ war against Islamic Extremism and Terrorism. The FIRST (of three) mission of the Beast’s ALLIANCE with 10 European Nation-States and their strong (iron) and weak (clay) militaries. The 10 nation-states GIVE their SOVEREIGNTY to the Beast, and ‘ACT WITH ONE MIND OR PURPOSE,’ on behalf of the Beast. After the fall of the Gog/Magog Coalition, the ONLY enemy that the Beast has are Islamic Terrorists and Extremists. ‘And he will wipe them off of the face of the planet.’ ‘Who can make war or come against the beast?’
Excerpts from Mr. Joel Rosenberg’s recent publication ‘Enemies and Allies’.
MbS’ need to form an ‘Alliance’ with 10 European Nation-States’ Militaries that act with ‘one mind.’
“We are grateful for America,” MbS said. “They helped us build our country. We will stand with America against the enemies of this region. What we must do is build an alliance in this region of strong allies – an economic alliance, a security alliance – to make everyone, all the people, more prosperous and to make sure we are all safe against our enemies.” (p. 172). (NW note; ‘what if’ there is NO U.S. to ally with after the rapture or harpazo? What military coalition is left remaining on earth to form an alliance with?)
MbS, “The leaders of Iran are driven by ideology,” he said. “They don’t care about the nation. If their mission is accomplished, we’re going to have a huge, huge problem – twenty times bigger than Afghanistan. It’s a nightmare.” To that end, MbS expressed gratitude that President Trump understood the severity of the Iran threat and was pursuing a “maximum pressure’ campaign of tough economic sanctions and a new regional security alliance – a Middle East NATO, of sorts – to counter the terror masters in Tehran.
U.S. Vice President Pence, “He (Trump) made his very first trip overseas to go to a capital of the Arab world. He brought together more than 50 (5) [Arab and Muslim] nations to form a new alliance to counter radical Islamic terrorism. And we began to forge relationships within the Arab world.” (p. 237)
MbS’ war against Islamic Terrorism and ‘Radicalism’ (Satanic Decoys), The FIRST of three (3) reasons that the Beast forms an alliance with 10 European Nation-States’ Armies that ‘act with one mind’;
What is the biggest fear in the Middle East today?
(Joel Rosenberg) That America will lose interest in the region, act naively, or pull out. Tired of war, burdened with massive and growing debt, what if the United States cannot or will not stay engaged in the most volatile and dangerous region in the world? Many Arabs and Israelis worry they are witnessing a slow but steady American retreat from the Middle East. Knowing that nature abhors a vacuum, they fear a reduction of American participation in the Middle East because they believe that only a robust American-Israeli-Sunni Arab alliance can counter the rising threats posed by Russia, Iran and Turkey [NW note; Gog/Magog Coalition], combined with the growing ambitions of China and North Korea. Such fears are responsible, in part, for driving Israelis and Arabs to work more closely together. (pa. 296-297)
(Joel Rosenberg) “President Trump is sending a signal,” I told the Christian Broadcasting Network during an April 2017 interview. ‘We want to work with leaders like … the Saudi Crown Prince and the Gulf States, and of course Israel, to build and Israeli-American-Sunni alliance against Iran and ISIS…” “Mr. Trump has been intentionally – and rightly – reaching out to Arab Muslim leaders in recent months to forge a working alliance against Iran and ISIS.” (p. 146)
(Joel Rosenberg) Trump did not use the visit simply to sign more than $300 billion in trade and defense deals with Riyadh. He also held face-to-face summit with the leaders of more than 50 (5) Arab and Muslim countries. And in his address, he provided moral clarity in the war against radical Islamism. (p. 147)
Excerpts from President Trump address
(President Trump) “Here at this summit we will discuss many interests we share together. But above all we must be united in pursuing the one goal that transcends every other consideration. That goal is to meet history’s great test – to conquer [Islamic] extremism and vanquish the forces of terrorism. In sheer numbers, the deadliest toll has been exacted on the innocent people of Arab, Muslim, and Middle Eastern nations. They have borne the brunt of the killings and the worst of the destruction in this wave of fanatical violence. Some estimates hold that more than 95 percent of the victims of terrorism are themselves Muslim. A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and extremists. Drive. Them. Out. DRIVE THEM OUT of your places of worship. DRIVE THEM OUT of your communities. DRIVE THEM OUT of your holy land, and DRIVE THEM OUT OF THIS EARTH.” P. 147-148)
(Joel Rosenberg) Trump received praise from many in the Muslim world and from regional analysts who understood exactly what he was saying and wholeheartedly agreed. “Bravo President Trump,” tweeted Anwar Gargash, the UAE’s state minister of foreign affairs. “Effective and historic speech defining approach toward extremism and terrorism with candid respect and friendship.” The government of Indonesia – the world’s largest Muslim country – hailed the speech and the summit, saying that “it is the first time a meeting between the new American government and Islamic countries [is] addressing issues that are of concern to us all, especially regarding the fight against radicalism and terrorism.” “President Trump gave an effective speech focusing on one of the major challenges facing the Middle East and the world: terrorism and extremism,” observed Zalmay Khalilzad, former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, Iraq, and the United Nationss. “His call on Muslim leaders at the summit to do more to take on extremists and terrorists was important.” (p. 149)
A REFORMER RISING IN RIYADH
(Joel Rosenberg) “As it happened, Fox News published the article n MbS’s birthday with the headline: “Mohammed bin Salman is 33.” (NW note; same age as Christ during his ministry, coincidence?) Amidst so much war and terrorism in the Middle East, there is actually remarkably good news coming out of Saudi Arabia. A reformer is rising, pursuing the most dramatic economic, social, and foreign policy changes in the history of the kingdom. His name is Mohammed bin Salman. Widely known simply as “MbS,” he’s young [born August 31, 1985]. Yet he has already amassed tremendous power. … In June 2017 (NW note, 2017-2024 = ‘7’ years), he was named crown prince, and thus heir to the throne. (p. 149)
MbS, “This is a tough neighborhood,” he said. “We have a lot of enemies – Iran, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, Hamas, al Qaeda, Daesh [ISIS], and others. The Iranians are extremists. The Muslim Brotherhood are extremists. There are many extremists, but we will not let them win.” “The extremists are trying to destroy us daily,” he continued. “They want to regains the dignity of the Muslim community and restore its power and glory. But they want to do it by force, by terrorism. That is not true Islam. The Iranians are trying to export their revolution. We will not accept this. We need to live as peaceful nations, within our nations.” (p. 171-172)
9/11/2001) World Trade Center Terrorism
(Joel Rosenberg) When we asked Mohammed bin Salman where he was on that fateful Tuesday, he told us he remembered it vividly. He was sixteen years old and his father was governor of Riyadh. He was in his room that afternoon when his mother suddenly called him and told him to come quickly. He reached the TV just in time to see the second plan fly into the World Trade Center. He remembered thinking, The ‘reputation of Islam is over. It’s been destroyed.’ He also told us that he and cousins felt a sense of humiliation. They now feared that, whenever Saudis traveled abroad, they would have to hide their nationality or risk being branded as terrorists, connected forever with Osam bin Laden. (p. 198)
(MbS) “It created a will for revenge” in the younger generation of Saudis, he said. “Did you say revenge?” we asked. “Yes,” he said. “Revenge against the terrorists.” Then he added, “As cousins, we made a promise to one another. ‘One day we’re going to kick these people’s asses. And that is what we’re doing.” (p. 198)
(Joel Rosenberg) In May 2019m the Charter of Makkah (Mecca) was signed by King Salman and 1,200 (6+6) of the world leading Muslim scholars – from 139 countries, representing 27 (3x3x3) sects of Islam. The signatories unanimously endorsed the principle the moderate Islam is the only legitimate form of Islam that should be taught and practiced around the globe. Pledging themselves once for all to “combat terrorism and injustice”; oppose all attacks on places of worship; advance “the Islamic values of tolerance, peace, and harmonious coexistence.” With the signing of the charter, King Salman declared that “Saudi Arabia has strongly condemned and fought all forms of extremism, violence, and terrorism with ideology, determination, and decisiveness, and has opposed an identification with them.” (p. 221)
(Joel Rosenberg) With the blessing of his father, King Salman (7th King, short time, while or space), he’s moving quickly to expand women’s rights, diversify the country’s oil-based economy, confront radical Islamism, and even advance peace between the Israelis and Palestinians. (p. 150)
(MbS) “And the problem [radical Islam, terrorism] spread all over the world. Now is the time to get rid of it.” “… we won’t waste [the next] thirty years of our [lives] combating extremist thoughts. We will destroy them now and immediately.” (p. 150)
ON COUNTERING VIOLENT EXTREMISM
(MbS) “The duty of Islam is the spread of the word all over the world. (NW note; ISLAM ‘those who worship the dragon and SOON the BEAST.’) “Now the message has been completed. You can find the Qu’ran all over the world. You can find Muslims everywhere.” (p. 172)
(MbS) “We are fighting extremists in the ideological war, we are fighting terrorists in a physical war. At every stage we encounter obstacles, but we have to keep pushing forward. Over the last two years, on three different occasions, my security guards have been killed by terrorists trying to get to me. The head of Egyptian intelligence just came to visit me. He told me they caught a terrorist cell in northern Sinai that had Saudis in it. The cell was planning to assassinate me.” “We must fight the extremists and defeat them, or they will stop us and the reforms we are making to make life better for the people of Saudi Arabia. So that’s what we’re doing, and it’s working. The terrorists and extremists are on the run. That is not easy. There are many risks. But don’t worry – we’re not doing it for you. We’re doing it for us.” (p. 172-173)
The State of Religious Freedom in the Arab World
(Joel Rosenberg) I am pleased to report that something very hopeful is happening with regards to the safety and freedom of Christians [NW note; ‘those who were beheaded for their witness of Christ and God’s word – future Tribulation Saints] in the Sunni Arab Muslim world. Not long ago, radical Islamists were beheading Christians in Libya, burning down churches in Egypt, waging genocide against Christians in Iraq and Syria … and vowing to exterminate Christianity throughout our region.
Today, the situation is ‘vastly’ different.
- Arab Muslim leaders have been valiantly fighting to defeat the forces of radical Islamism.
- A growing number of Arab governments are waging an ideological and theological battle against radical Islamists in their mosques, in their schools, on social media, and (are) training a new generation of clerics to preach moderation and mutual respect …
- Some Arab kings and crown princes, presidents and prime ministers, are calling for a new era of peaceful coexistence with Christians and Jews. And some are even inviting Christians to meet with them to improve religious freedom and the quality of life for the Christians in their countries. (p. 262)
Paul Rolland, Night Watchman, Night Watchman Ministries:
Revived Roman Empire (European) 10 ‘Nation States’ of both weak and strong (iron mixed with clay) militaries to serve the Beast – as a ‘rent-an-army’ for one hour, they are not kings yet. But the Beast will make them ‘as kings’ (gives them sovereignty) to act on his behalf throughout the world, for short periods of time. The ancient Roman Empire extended as far as down ‘into Saudi Arabia.’
Revelation 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
16 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.
17 For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
- Fight Islamic Terrorism in countries around the world (beginning of the tribulation).
- Destroy/Burn false religious idols, temples, mystery religion (mid-point of the tribulation).
- Fight against Christ on His Second Coming to Earth (last day of the tribulation).
Night Watchman Note; The ‘revived 10 nation EU military coalition of strong (iron) and weak (clay) ‘nation-states’ will be involved in fighting ISLAMIC terrorism around the world, on behalf of the Beast. MbS has PUBLICALLY gone on record, and it is well documented, that he wants to fight Islamic terrorism (for political and rulership reasons). MbS has also PUBLICALLY gone on record stating, quote … “Islamic terrorists give my religion, ISLAM, a ‘bad name.’” This is true, Islam is NOT a religion of peace, but is the exact opposite.
Islam / Muslims; ‘Those who worship the dragon [Allah, Satan, God of this World], and SOON the Beast [Antichrist / Mujaddid].’
3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. 4 People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?” 5 The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months.
Prophetic Discernment; Satan ALWAYS presents a ‘counterfeit’, not only through his Son of Perdition, Man of Lawlessness, That ‘Wicked’, Prince, Beast, 8th King, Defiler (abomination of desolation), Confirmer (among MENA, the ‘many’), Mujaddid, Blasphemer, Perfection of Deception, et.al. ISLAMIC TERRORISTS are a satanic ‘decoy.’ How so? Simple, rightly so, terrorism is in fact … extremely evil. However, Satan’s pretext or lie is that Islamic Terrorism is the world’s ‘greatest evil.’ Virtually all governments (and politicians, world leaders…including authoritarians) would strongly AGREE. The world’s attention will be focused on eliminating this rising threat in Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia and perhaps other parts of the world. This draws the world’s attention AWAY FROM THE RISE of the BEAST. The Beast will appear to be ‘honorable’ for defending ISLAM (its ‘reputation’), and for ‘taking a stand’ against terrorism. The Beast/Antichrist will give the ’10 kings who are not yet kings’ the AUTHORITY (sovereignty) to act on his behalf, with his permission, to enter other countries national or sovereign borders to fight against and destroy Islamic cells embedded everywhere. The 10 nation military coalition of ‘iron and clay’ armies will be allowed to militarily enter any and every country under threat or activity of Islamic Terrorism, in the previously mentioned areas. NO POLITICAL LEADER will argue against this strategy. How many African, Middle East or Asian countries have the resources or military strength to launch an all-out military assault or campaign against worldwide Islamic Terrorists? NO SINGLE COUNTRY HAS THIS ABILITY. But, the Beast will give the ’10 King EU Military Coalition’ the ability, authority and sovereignty to do just this. This is NOT world war three. The Bible is clear that they do the Beast’s bidding ‘for an hour.’ An hour is not months or years, like the first or second world wars. An hour is a relatively short period of time. Islamic terrorist cells will be quickly identified, targeted and eradicated. This does not involve nuclear weapons or such, but rather a ‘quick strike, flexible, coordinated (act in ‘unison’)’ military force. This is EXACTLY how the EU is developing its ‘unified military defenses.’ I have documented this extensively over the past three (3) years. Macron is a ‘ring-leader’ regarding this effort. It is also no coincidence that Macron is BFF’s (Best Friends) with MbS. Don’t believe me? I challenge you to run a ‘google search’ under Macron and MbS and discover how many ‘selfies’ they have taken together. Notice who is the ‘dominant’ friend of the two (Yes, Your Highness!).
Let me bring this in for a landing on the Charles DeGaulle. MbS is the world’s ‘REAL EVIL’ as the current BEAST and coming Antichrist / One World Leader. Islamic terrorists (although very evil) are in fact, a DECOY. They ‘terrorists’ give MbS a reason to form his relationship with and use (for an hour) of the coming EU Military Coalition of 10 strong (iron) mixed with weak (clay) nation-states. This is nothing more than a ‘rent-an-army-for-an-hour.’ Keep in mind the first horseman of the apocalypse rides a ‘white Arabian horse,’ wears a royal crown, has a white robe and has a bow … but NO arrows. He doesn’t rule the world by military force, but rather by lies, deception, false agreements, lying covenants, back-stabbing, self-interest, self-promotion, delusion, back-room deals, under-cover ‘friendships’ and assorted other dark arrangements. This is all part and parcel of his deception of the world, as he rises to worldly power, ultimately coming to a head as the Antichrist. He will talk like a savior, act like a savior, speak like a savior, look like a savior … but HE IS NOT. MbS, ‘Man by Satan.’
Ten Nation Confederacy of the Beast’s Kingdom (Rev. 13:1, 17:12, 17:13, 17:14, 17:16, 17:17). Throughout the book of Revelation, there are many references to ten (10) horns that represent ten (10) kings or nations making up a confederacy. The Bible indicates that they will have one mind and give their power and strength (political/military) to the antichrist. Although these leaders are not kings, in return for their allegiance to the antichrist’s system, they receive power as kings from the antichrist for a short period (one hour). Lastly, the Bible says in Rev. 17:17, “For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.” The military strength of this ten (10) nation confederacy will be unrivaled in the Western Hemisphere. Russia’s strength is decimated by the Gog/Magog battle. The United States strength is inconsequential because it is no longer in NATO or the Middle East, its political and leadership will is split and the Rapture/Harpazo of the Church has gutted the military and its leadership ranks. The beast’s/antichrist’s ten (10) nation confederacy has no military or political equal in the West.
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.
8 References to ‘BE WATCHING or WATCHFUL.’ ‘8’ indicates that a new ‘era or epoch’ is arriving. Be it the rapture, the tribulation, the year of the Jews redemption or the year of the onset (2028) of the 1000 year millennial reign of Christ (2028-3028).

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:
The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)
A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.
. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).
. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).
. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).
B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.
. . . “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.
. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).
. . . “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).
. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).
