The beast is fully matured

Revelation 13:1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.

2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

The head represents authority and horns represent organized power.  Seven heads represent the fact that the beast is fully mature in its authority over the world.  In the past, men have tried to identify seven specific leaders to pin our problems on.  “Self” is the problem as it is manifested at a macro level.  Selfishness, self-centeredness, and self preservation are all attributes of those who have promoted and fed the serpent to become a dragon.  Now the beast has risen out of the the depraved sea of humanity and established a mature sensual, devilish system for all of mankind to submit and become its subjects under its rule.

The ten horns or organized power speak to the laws enacted in order to keep mankind in subjection to its rule.  One only has to look as far as the new laws being implemented to see how man’s freedom and liberties are being whittled away in order to perpetuate the beast’s system of control and subjection.  The Ten Commandments of Love have been replaced with the ten horns of derivative power transferred by the masses who look to government for their protection and provision.

Leaders and politicians continue to place the masses in greater subjection while they misrepresent Truth.  They have replaced true money with fiat currency that can be manipulated in order to perpetuate their schemes.  They use cunning devices to promote self interest and get reelected by prostituting themselves to corporate greed.  In the meantime, the masses are entertained by the increasing variety of television programming, computer games, and extreme sports.  “Let’s keep them occupied” is the chant of those who place the masses under further control.

A fully matured beast will hate the Sons.  You are a threat to the world and FATHER will sustain you during your maturing process.  Remember that HE has the Sons caught up to Heaven and the woman is being sustained in the wilderness.  The beast is affecting the rest of mankind until the fateful hour when the world’s system comes tumbling down.  Even now there are tremors occurring that is shaking the very foundation of the current system.  The beast in its quest to devour will in effect cause its own demise.  Its very nature of death and destruction is its weak point.  The wisdom of the world cannot bring forth life but instead it is self-consuming in nature.  Jesus spoke about this kingdom when He said in Luke 11:

17 But He, knowing their thoughts, said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls.

The world system is not in unity nor will it ever be.  Greed and lawlessness prevent men from truly submitting to another whereas FATHER’S Kingdom is knit together in Love and HIS Sons promote life and abundance for all of mankind.   The beast is wild and uncontrollable and no earthly man can tame it.  The world system is ruthless and has no problem in killing, maiming, exploiting, and deceiving to promote its various agendas.  It will do everything possible to suppress any righteous standard from coming forth.  Herod killed the infants hoping to include Our Lord Jesus Christ among them.  His fear of losing his position of power motivated him to instigate the mass slaying of male children.  The beast hates the Sons and moves upon men to become their enemies.  In an counterintuitive move, FATHER moves us to Love our enemies.  The beast just can’t seem to grasp that reality for it is guided by the wisdom of the world.  Paul explains this reality in 1 Corinthians 3:

18 Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise.

19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”;

20 and again, “The LORD knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.”

The beast had seven heads denoting its authority had fully matured.  But then something happened:

Revelation 13:. 3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.

4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”

Did the beast nearly fall or collapse but then recover?  On his heads are names of blasphemy.  If one is blasphemous, he misappropriates, slanders, misallocates, and speaks evil of others.  At a personal level, we receive Christ in our hearts but then later the old man who is mortally wounded seems to rise up and gain strength.  Those who succumb to the carnal man begin to misallocate what is now the FATHER’S possession for their selfish gain.  They will exalt themselves by belittling others.  They will exploit the generosity of others by using the “guilt” card.  “If you loved me, then you would ….”.  This is a classic conditional love expression.  During these confrontations with “self” we must hear FATHER so that we do not enable and promote lawlessness.  As the beast matures it becomes critical for us to be led by THE SPIRIT and have full access to HIS Living Word.  Otherwise, the beast will use its subtle devices to snare and bind us.

When the beast is fully mature, the “world” will believe that nobody is able to stand against it.  Their blindness to FATHER’S Power and Authority which supersedes any derivative power causes them to believe such a lie.  Once the deception has been exposed, men will repent en masse.  When the Righteous Standard is raised to compare against the current system, men will see how they have been misled and deceived by the sensual, worldly wisdom.  Their blindness will be removed and their eyes will shed tears of remorse and in turn will become tears of joy when they see the Love of THE FATHER expressed by HIS plan of restoration.  We can see the plan coming together!
