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 OF THE WEEK:

And he is oft the wisest man,

Who is not wise at all.

William Wordsworth, The Oak and the Broom

————

       Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet himSee Matthew 25: 1-13.

Will a “Christian” sharia-like Theocracy arise in America?

FRIDAY MORNING MANNA 

 Biblical Numerology: NUMBER THREE- Part XLVII

 Will a “Christian” sharia-like Theocracy arise in America?

Let’s consider the matter in the light of ecclesiastical history—during the time of Christ, the Dark Ages in the Old World, and in America during its fledgling years:  First, my favorite author, Ellen G. White, penned the following based on Luke 17: 20-22:

     “Some of the Pharisees had come to Jesus demanding ‘when the kingdom should come.’ More than three years had passed since John the Baptist gave the message that like of a trumpet call had sounded through the land, Read more

 ‘The Three Stricts and Three Earnests’

 

The above slogan—one of the many numerical designations in Chinese politics, refers to being strict in morals, power, and discipline, as well as honesty in decisions, business, and behavior. Seehttp://news.yahoo.com/china-xi-warns-communist-colleagues.

Doubtless these are noble aspirations and standards to aim for this New Year 2016, not only by Chinese politicians but all political leaders of all nations of the world. However, it leaves out the only way by which and whom mankind can achieve them literally and spiritually: Jesus Christ the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father in heaven except through Him. John 14: 6. Thus this slogan will remain consigned to the dustbin of quotable yet unachievable quotes. If it does not bring about heart transformation, it is mere assent to the truth, a popular self-deception. Read more
