    You are not spiritually seeing that Satan and his angels were kicked out of heaven long ago when Christ ascended to heaven.

    Revelation 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. 7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

    It makes complete sense that Satan and his angels would have been cast out of heaven when Jesus ascended there because Jesus defeated Satan at the cross (Heb 2:14-15, 1 John 3:8) and is now our Mediator in heaven between us and the Father (1 Timothy 2:5, Heb 8:6,9:15,12:24). Notice that it says in verse 10: "the accuser of our brethren is cast down". How can Satan accuse us any longer now that Christ's blood has covered our sins? He can't.

    Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

    Notice also that it says "Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ". How can anyone think that did not happen already long ago? Did not Jesus bring salvation and the kingdom of God to the world long ago? Of course He did.

    It is practical math, as the Holy Spirit tells us in the Scripture. Take the "earthly" 2 days (2000 years) since our Beloved's crucifixion and divide it by the "Divine" number 3. The answer is 666.666.666. Our Lord wanted His wise children who had understanding to know when we could expect Satan. It points to our generation and no other.

    The following is given about the event of the locust army God sends in the end upon His people, and they devour His people at the end. Notice the metaphors used for their time of working...

    Joel 2:7-10
    7 They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:

    8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.

    9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

    10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

    KJV

    You are not spiritually seeing the untimely figs metaphor in the first part of the 6th Seal. And remember, the Rev.6 chapter of the Seals are a parallel to the Signs Lord Jesus gave in His Olivet discourse, with the very last Sign being that of His coming.


    I see the pseudo-Christ coming on the 6th Trumpet - 2nd Woe, which is what the opening of the symbolic border of Euphrates points to, set for a specific hour, day, month, and a year. The pseudo-Christ is pointed directly to in the Rev.9:11 verse immediately prior to that 6th trumpet sounding, and I think it's to get our attention about that 6th Trumpet event. That 2nd Woe period continues all the way to the 3rd Woe in Rev.11 which signals Christ's coming on the 7th Trumpet. I see the 5th Trumpet - 1st Woe including some events that will only happen within the 6th Trumpet - 2nd Woe, like the "five months". I know they are given in the 5th Trumpet period, but the actual time of tribulation is pointed to within the 2nd Woe period. Might be a little difficult to see, but the locusts in the 5th Trumpet period are working a preparation for the pseudo-Christ's coming. Their real work will be as that locust army in the 6th Trumpet - 2nd Woe.

    Yeah, I think the 5th Seal martyrs is already happening, mainly to Christians in foreign Muslim countries, and Communist nations. It will culminate at the very end with a group of Christ's elect delivered up to the pseudo-Christ to give a Testimony before the whole world against him and his beast system. I believe it will be televised across the whole world (Mark 13; Rev.11).

    I know. You can find those symbols for that timing in Isaiah also. But did you not see the Joel 2 verses I posted above that use those symbols with the locust army working prior to the day of the Lord?

    Apparently, you are not understanding the "untimely figs" metaphor given with the 6th Seal, which is very, very, very important, and covers a lot material about the endtime deception to the Antichrist.

    Rev 6:12-13
    12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

    13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

    Since the first beast comes up out of the pit... it's stone-cold dead. This pit is called Tartarus in Hesiod, and it's under "the fruitless deep with his raging swell, Pontus"... the beast comes up from this sea. This's where the Titans were sealed up. Kronos is the one you're looking for here. He's Baal and Bel of the Babylonians, aka Saturn... spelled Stur... which numbers add up to 666. Freemasonry and Kabbalah came from Babylon... and Egypt, because this is where Solomon got his most famous wife which led him astray. 666 is the sum of the monetary tribute given to Solomon for his wisdom... as in "Here is wisdom."

    These two beasts and their harlot are virtually the same... kinda like the unholy trinity. Jesus says Jerusalem kills the prophets, but just before said the Pharisees do all the killing. Some places say the prince of this world is the dragon, some say the beast is given its power by the dragon. ... Hesiod shows Zeus making Kronos cough up what he swallowed. Jeremias 28:41-44 shows God punishing "Babylon, and bring forth out of her mouth what she has swallowed down".

    We have always had plagues during human history and Covid-19 is just another one. No one called the flu shot the mark of the beast. Covids 1 thru 18, caused no alarm. So why does Covid-19 generate so much excitement, when it's just another virus in the sequence?

    The beast was before Rome is... when Revelation was written.

    Rev.17:9-11 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

    Five are fallen.
    1._____? 2._____? 3.Babylon/Lion, 4.Medo-Persia/Bear 5.Greece/Leopard

    One is = 6.Rome. 7._____?

    Beast is of the seven = at least, of Greece, Medo-Persia, and Babylon.

    Revelation 13:1 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. 2 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. 3 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.

    The 7 mountains aren't hills, they're peoples:

    17:1 And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great harlot that sitteth upon many waters:
    17:15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the harlot sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

    Sorcery. Babylon also was full of magic texts on tablets.

    Rev.9:20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

    Dan.5:4 They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, and of brass, and of iron, and of wood, and of stone.

    Rev.13:14 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.

    These "idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood" sound like the materials from which money is made... is this a "money talks" image to the beast?

    Or is it literally speaking idols?

    The image of the beast in Revelation 13 will be one specific idol, that through Satanic deception will appear to come to life and speak.

    To understand what is behind it all, one has to go to Ezekiel 28:16-19 about Satan's end as being a terror, and God bringing a fire to come up in his midst, and Satan being exposed for everyone present at that time to behold him.

    John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if My kingdom were of this world, then would My servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is My kingdom not from hence.

    Heavenly Sion is the woman in the stars.
    Sion = sign, title, waymark in the Old Testament.
    semeion = miracle, sign, token, wonder in the New Testament.


    12:1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
    She brought forth a male, Esaias 66:7 and Rev.12:5...
    who will rule with a rod of iron, Rev.2:26 and Rev.12:5.

    The war in Heaven

    Dan.12:1 And at that time Michael the great prince shall stand up, that stands over the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of tribulation, such tribulation as has not been from the time that there was a nation on the earth until that time: at that time thy people shall be delivered, even every one that is written in the book.
    Rev.12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

    The 3 woes of the last 3 trumpets

    Rev.8:13 And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

    5th trumpet is the first woe... locusts from the pit.
    9:12 One woe is past; [and], behold, there come two woes more hereafter.

    6th trumpet is the second woe... death of the witnesses.
    11:14 The second woe is past; [and], behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

    7th trumpet is the third woe... the devil comes to earth.
    12:12 Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

    Of course not. Nothing to do with a virus. Nor the chips. Nor the bitcoin. Nor any man-made fantasy of what the mark of the beast may look like that one needs to buy and sell with...physically.

    Come on.

    What is God's definition of the Beast in Scripture?
    What is the spiritual signification of the right hand in Scirpture?
    What is the spiritual signification of the forehead in Scirpture?
    What is the spiritual signification of buying and selling with the mark?

    Stop looking for interpretation in social media, YouTube, World Media, National Geography, JPost, etc, and get God's interpretation in His Holy Word. In order to find it, one needs to have spiritual discernment, instead allow media to be God's interpretation. Selah.

    Not true. The image of the beast is not something physically that people need to worship. THis is NOT what God talked about. Do you even know what is the image of Christ is, don't you?

    No Ezekiel 28 was not talking about a created being called "Satan". God was talking man.

    In Genesis God is speaking of His creation of mankind. I would say that it was through the corporate head of mankind (Adam) that we all started out in God's likeness of being created without sin, but man soon lost it. Mankind and his particular dilemma are summed up in the portrait of King Tyrus.

    Ezekiel 28:14-15
    • " 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.
    • Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee."
    King Tyrus is a representation of mankind as he was created in the righteous likeness of God (without sin) and perfect, and remained that way in God's paradise until the day that he committed iniquity. It was sin that brought death and the end to Adam/Mankind's perfection/righteousness in communion with God, and it can only be through rebirth from that dead that he can have that communion and creation image restored.

    Genesis 1:27
    • "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
    If by "created" God had meant only believers, then Adam and Eve would have never sinned unto death and fallen from communion with God. Moreover, by God saying male and female He created THEM, it's clear God is speaking about the creation of mankind, not a specific saved human being. As all have their genesis in Adam. It is also clear that mankind couldn't retain that perfection in which God said was good, so Adam was not created saved/a believer. It was sinlessness in which he was created. Thus God in referring to Adam couldn't be talking about creating a believer because believers don't fall unto death. He may have been created elect, but not a believer because he fell and death was the result.

    Genesis 2:17
    • "But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die."
    And die mankind did! God created them in His image, saw that all that He created was good, but warned the day they disobeyed (that iniquity/lawnessness was found in them) would be the day they would cease being righteous/perfect/lawful and come under the sentence of death. Thus Adam and Eve were not created as eternal believers, they could really only be that in regeneration after the fall Only then would they be brought permanently back into the image of God. The same way we (mankind through him) is. When created, man and woman were in the image of God, they were perfect and thus worthy to be in God's Paradise of Eden until the day that they sinned. It was by that sin that mankind lost the image or likeness of God. In losing it, they were then forbidden to remain in the Paradise of God. They were cast out by their iniquity.

    Genesis 3:22-23
    • "And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
    • Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken."
    From that time forward all mankind was no longer after the likeness of God and could not have their presence with God in Paradise. Thereafter all in Adam (Mankind) was created or had their genesis being desperately wicked. Not one was good or righteous to have communion with God. That's the change from the generation or family of God to the generation of vipers. It is only in our regeneration (re-genesis) in Christ that we retrieve that likeness of God wherein man was originally created and restored to His image.

    Romans 8:29
    • "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren."

    It is in this regenesis or rebirth which all the elect were predestinated to reformed to His image in Christ. In Him only we are finally restored permanently to the likeness of God that we couldn't retain in the garden of Eden because of their iniquity.

    See, the image of the beast v.s. the image of His Son. Unbelievers vs Elect. Those who worship the image of the beast instead of image of Son are those who receive the mark of the beast on their right head (doing the will of the beast) or on forehead (same mind of the beast). That's it.

    Graffiti found in Pompeii dating from around 79 AD reads "I love her whose number is 545." Another says, "Amerimnus thought upon his lady Harmonia for good. The number of her honorable name is 45."
    Seems people in ancient times had numbers to their names.

    Of course, this is NOT how the Bible wanted to understand the number.

    From what I've been reading, Saturn is the clue. On its face is the hexagram of clouds, which is also a 3-d cube and a six-pointed star. That black cube shows up all over the web, along with pictures of the arch of Baal standing in London and DC, etc... like a portal for Baal/Saturn to come through. I used to think Satanism was a sick joke... I don't anymore. Revelation tells us they will not repent of their sorcery. In children's books, sorcery stands front and center. Giving their children to Molech will turn out to have been a kindness, compared.

    Saturn is Cronus the Titan. These Titans are fallen angels kept in the pit. I don't know that anything else is kept there yet, since the white throne judgment hasn't happened and man isn't there yet. But the Titans almost ended the world the last time they were out on earth. The Bible doesn't speak of them except in the most vague and most easily misinterpretted places. But they will devour the world. The angel of the pit isn't the bad guy, or he would've been in the pit himself. The two names for that angel are Abaddon (doom) and Apollyon (destruction)... which seem to me to be death and hell... they let loose the overflowing scourge of Isaiah. Jesus says He has the keys of death and hell... which He must be giving to doom and destruction... Jesus warns us not to fear the one who can destroy their body, but will destroy their souls in hell. If the Titans were bad guys before, how much worse will they be now?

    It is necessary to read the Greek Legends, IMHO. These should have been part of the Bible in their earliest forms... maybe they exist between the first chapters in Genesis. But Jesus certainly knew them, because He points to them in the Revelation.

    What Kabbalah calls the tree of life is actually the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It will be the same sin that the serpent caused before that causes time to run out on the world. It's the same sin that had Nimrod and his masons building the temple shaped like a mountain in Babylon.

    Clay, in his books about Amurru and the Empire of the Amorites, says they must have remembered mountains from where they used to live.

    The vaccine is a precursor to the Mark of the beast. Bill Gates has filled patent#NWO202060606, which provides a quantum microdot tattoo. Naked to the eye, but scannable. It will be used a means to buy/sell w/ bit currency.

    There are already places/things you cannot do w/out showing your card. There are reports of fake cards being printed. This quantum microdot tattoo will be a means to eliminate fraud. People will line up to get a tattoo.

    What is 666?

    Which ancient god-figure is mentioned as being thrice something? A figure of pride. A god of magic, science, thieves, media, and thus of the technology that could make an 'image' talk and of the rise of a society filled with the vanity of its own works that seeks to rise to the heavens.

    The number of a man.
    "Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." Not a computer, a "god", a philosophy, a technology, or any of that other drek, a man.

    Not only that, but the Revelator expected those amongst his readers who had wisdom would know who that man was.

    And to whom did he address his prophecy? "John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace"

    First I ever saw was that "animatronic" mannequin of Abe Lincoln at Disneyland. Late '50s, I think that was.

    “Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.” Goes back a ways, dunnit?
