And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eight and is of the seven, and goeth to perdition. Revelation 17: 11, K.J.V.

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA

And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eight and is of the seven, and goeth to perdition. Revelation 17: 11, K.J.V.

That is, the “eighth beast” who “was,” and “is not”—is “of the seven beasts,” “and “goes into perdition.”

This last “beast” or “eight” beast is not another separate beast in the line of succession of the prophetic beast of sacred and world history. He is “of the seven” previous beasts, and, clearly, the final composite form of the outstanding characteristics of all the rest. This follows the given explanation of the leopard-like beast in the introduction of Revelation 13.   Read more

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK:
If you know the enemy, and you know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.” – Sun Tzu, Chinese military strategist
From Facts of Faith by Christian Edwardson (Revised), chapter: The Prophetic History of the World, pp. 34-38. Southern Publishing Asso. Nashville 8 TN, U.S.A., 1943:  
     THE PROPHECIES of the Bible are not difficult to understand—if we follow the rules laid down in Scripture for interpreting prophecy. These rules are few in number, and they are not complicated. When used in connection with prophetic symbols, ‘sea,’ or ‘waters’ stand for ‘multitudes of people’ (Rev. 17: 15; Isa. 8: 7; 17: 12; Jer. 6: 23); ‘wind’ stands for ‘war’ (Jer. 4: 12, 13; 25: 31, 32); ‘beasts’ stands for ‘kingdoms’ (Dan. 7: 23); and ‘days’ for ‘years [of 360 days] (Eze.4: 6).  Read more

      “Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants, the prophets.” Amos 3 7, K.J.V.

      “We also have the prophetic word made sure, which you would do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts; knowing this first that no prophecy is of private interpretation [or origin], for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”  2 Peter 1, 19, 20, N.K.J.V.

      “And the spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets. For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints.” 1 Cor. 14: 32, 33.

Four Angels still Holding Back the Four Winds: How long?

 

     I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, . . . .saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. Revelation 7: 2, 3, Authorized Version.

     “Four mighty angels are still holding the four winds of the earth. Terrible destruction is forbidden to come in full. The accidents by land and by sea; the loss of life, steadily increasing, by storm, by tempest, by railroad disaster, by conflagration; the terrible floods, the earthquakes, and the winds will be the stirring up of nations to one deadly combat, while the angels hold the four winds, forbidding the terrible power of Satan to be exercised in its fury until the servants of God are sealed in their foreheads.” – Ellen G.  White, Review & Herald (RH), June 7, 1887.

The Significance of Number Four and Forty in the Bible

 

Jesus Christ, mankind’s only Savior and Mediator, is a God of order. The gentle “Shepherd and Bishop of our souls” (1 Pet. 2: 25) knows and numbers His sheep who also “know His voice and follow Him” (John 10: 4, 7, 11, 27, K.J.V.)

He “makes all things beautiful in His time” (Eccl.3: 11). He is the One whom the gospel prophet prophesied: “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” Isa. 9: 6-9. Read more
