The Anointed Covering Cherubim Who Walked Upon The Stones of Fire
In studying the many prophetic writings of the Bible, we come across lots of intriguing or difficult verses that we need to find answers to in order to be able to see things more clearly.
One such verse that seems to stump students of prophecy or that causes varied opinions to spring up, can be found in the book of Revelation, namely, "the beast that was, and is not, and yet is."
We know from the scriptures that "the beast" is one of the many titles placed on the head of the infamous, end time leader Antichrist. He has many such titles, up to 39 in total! The "beast that was, and is not, and yet is", cannot though, be talking about the physical Antichrist leader himself, but rather, the god of this world, the prince of the power of the air, the spirit being who will indwell Antichrist midway through the seven year tribulation period.
To get to that understanding, we must look for the first mention of this "beast", which is found in Genesis:
Genesis 3: 1: "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made..."
The serpent (Satan) is named as the wisest beast made by God. He was God's covering cherubim in the Garden of Eden:
Ezekiel 38: 13, 14: "Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God... Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. (note the "thou wast")
In Luke 10: 18 we see that God's Son, Yashua, was given a vision of Satan being cast to the Earth at a future date: And he said unto them, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven."
That same event, as far as I am concerned, was also revealed to John, which we can read in Revelation 9: 1: And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the Earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
Who could this star be other than Satan being cast to Earth? Does this not occur halfway through the seven year tribulation period, coinciding with Satan taking control of the Antichrist? He brings with him the keys to the bottomless pit, which tells me that he is headed in that direction with permission to release the imprisoned demons there. In certain Bible versions (NIV for example), the title "morning star" which belongs to God's Son, has been usurped and given over to God's adversary, Satan. Instead of being called "son of the morning" one of Lucifer's titles, he is called "O morning star".
This you will find in Isaiah 14: 12: How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! You have been cast down to the Earth, you who once laid low the nations! (NIV)
Compare this with the King James: How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! (King James Version)
By usurping Yashua's title of morning star, Lucifer is seen by John as a star falling from heaven. Satan is a copycat artist, he is never original! We associate the morning star with the planet Venus - which is not a star! Our primary star of course is the Sun itself, which is far superior to the planet Venus. Yashua's title of "Bright and morning star" should be referring to the Sun then and not the planet Venus. The planet Venus, referred to as the "son of the morning", represents Satan better as it can be seen only until the Sun begins to rise and outshines it!
To get back to where we were before in attempting to prove that "the beast who was, and is not, and yet is", refers to Satan, let's take a look now at the book of Revelation:
Revelation 17: 8: The beast that thou sawest was, ("thou wast") and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
So why can't this be referring to Satan being cast to Earth (as now he is the the god of this world through being the prince of the power of the air), with the keys to the bottomless pit with which he releases the chained demons and then ascends up out of the pit to take control of the Antichrist? It does not have to be so difficult to understand if you allow the Word to interpret itself.
That is why I say that the beast being referred to in Revelation 17: 8 and 11 and the star falling from heaven in Revelation 9: 1, is this one and the same Satan "the beast that was" ("thou wast upon the holy mountain of God", God's covering cherubim, the wisest beast of the field made by God, who walked upon the stones of fire), "and is not" (he lost his employment through pride and rebellion), "and yet is" (still exists and works with whoever he can)
Revelation 17: 11: And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
He is the eighth king because he indwells the seventh and last of the most powerful Antichrist type kings who have ever existed. The last one was obviously one of the Roman emperors. When it talks about five have fallen and one is, then that particular one was the reigning Roman emperor, Domitian, who was in power at the time John was given the Revelation. The seventh is Antichrist himself for three and a half years until the 8th, Satan gets cast to Earth. He is also of the other seven because being the god of this world, he executes power as the prince of the power of the air. The demon who indwelt the other seven including Antichrist, was under Satan's direct command.
Prophetic scripture has many layers to it so other meanings can be found that add more depth. For instance, the British Empire never really died out, it just hid behind a very cleverly planned smokescreen! That is a whole new story I know, but City of London Corporation is the most powerful of the three city corporations that exist. The other two are the Vatican City and Washington D.C. Now, if the British Empire was the true new emergence of the so-called Holy Roman Empire, which I believe it was, then that makes her the end time beast empire spoken of in Daniel 7: 7 and Revelation 13: 1, 2. In a way then, she also is "the beast that was, and is not, and yet is" because she hid herself from the world pretending that she was no longer the world's leading power!
Daniel 7: 7: After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
Revelation 13: 1, 2: 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. 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.
Left: The heraldry for the British monarchy actually depicts this end time beast, having the body of a leopard, feet of a bear and head of a lion, which is a combination of the beasts described in Daniel 7: 4-7. The heraldry shown here belongs to Prince Charles, but shows the same conglomerate beast of that of the Queen. In that of Prince Charles, we see the Red Dragon of the book of Revelation added and the words "Ich Dein" which means "I serve", in other words, what Charles is saying through his heraldry is "I serve the Red Dragon".
The fact that this end time beast of Revelation is shown as a combination of all the end time superpowers depicted in Daniel is very interesting as it was Britain (City of London Corporation), who set up Communism in Russia and China and have aided and abetted them both ever since! It was also Britain via the Luciferian Rothschild family who set up and funded modern day Israel with its mostly false Jews! And who really rules over it all? Reveation 12: 3 tells us clearly: 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.
So here we have the same seven heads and ten horns but the beast depicted is Satan himself.
These two previous depictions of the end time beast empire make mention of ten horns or nations/kings. In Daniel 2: 40-43 we see that the end time empire that leads us into the seven year tribulation period is depicted by the ten toes of the image:
Daniel 2: 40-43: And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
Psalm 83, verses 5 to 8 talk also of a ten nation confederacy that will attack Israel in the last days:
For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes; Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre; Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.
Clearly, as far as I can see, a ten nation confederacy will soon rise up out of this conglomerate end time beast, having The Antichrist as its leader. Daniel tells us that three kings or nations will rise up against him - obviously as they do not agree with him being their end time leader, but get crushed by Antichrist. The beast that was, and is not, and yet is, will indwell Antichrist during his last three and a half year reign. Satan's New World Order will be left as ashes on the ground! The beast that was, and is not, and yet is, will be thrown into the fiery lake along with the Antichrist beast and the false prophet. A New World Order shall then begin, but it will be of Yahweh and His Son, Yashua! Praise Yahweh!!
There is no need therefore, to watch for Europe rising up to become this end time resurrection of the Roman Empire. It is already with us. I see it as squabbling between the ruling oligarchy of powerful Illuminati families, who although they have been working together to bring in the New World Order, they are Luciferian and that makes them deceitful, fearful of each other and power crazy. They are already planning behind each others backs to take control of the world which will cause an unexpected Antichrist to rise up and take them by surprise! He will go on to systematically destroy everything the elite have been working towards and will bring destruction to his own country and to the Earth in general.
All the pieces are here before our very eyes. Babylon is recorded in scripture as having been translated to another land, which I see clearly as Britain and the U.S. (City of London Corporation and its control of the English speaking nations to be exact!) It may have passed through Rome on its journey, but is now firmly based in London.
Zechariah 5: 9-11: Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, (one of them must represent false religion like the woman seen riding the beast dressed in scarlet and purple of Revelation) and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah (representing commerce) between the earth and the heaven. Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?
And he said unto me, To build it a house in the land of Shinar (New Babylon): and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.
This was obviously revelation for the future to him (Zechariah) but relevant to us in these end times. It must precede the judgement of the Tribulation, so to my understanding, New Babylon/Rome is here in the Northwest and the 10 lost tribes of Israel are the predominantly English speaking nations of the world and will form Antichrist's ten nation, ten kings, ten horned, ten toed kingdom. The seven heads or mountains as far as I can see, speak of the seven continents. Anyway, I thought you might be interested to consider it - Eddie.
