  • AMAZING FACTS MINISTRY.
  • 00:00:03.160 --> 00:00:09.170
  • -THERE ARE FEW HUMANS WHOSE INTELLECT COULD MATCH THE GENIUS
  • 00:00:09.180 --> 00:00:12.270
  • OF LEONARDO DA VINCI, ONE OF THE GREATEST ARTISTS AND INVENTORS
  • 00:00:12.280 --> 00:00:16.180
  • OF ALL TIME. PROBABLY, HE'S MOST RENOWN
  • 00:00:16.190 --> 00:00:19.220
  • FOR HIS MONA LISA PAINTING. LEONARDO ALSO EXCELLED IN THE
  • 00:00:19.230 --> 00:00:24.140
  • FIELDS OF SCIENCE, OPTICS, ENGINEERING, ANATOMY, BOTANY,
  • 00:00:24.150 --> 00:00:30.030
  • ARCHITECTURE, GEOLOGY, ZOOLOGY, MECHANICS, AND MANY MORE.
  • 00:00:30.040 --> 00:00:35.170
  • IN MANY OF THESE AREAS HE WAS FAR AHEAD OF HIS TIME.
  • 00:00:35.180 --> 00:00:39.270
  • FOR EXAMPLE, HE DREW DESIGNS THAT WERE THE EQUIVALENT OF A
  • 00:00:39.280 --> 00:00:43.140
  • HELICOPTER, ONE FOR A PARACHUTE, A DIVING SUIT, AN ARMORED TANK,
  • 00:00:43.150 --> 00:00:48.050
  • AND MANY OTHER FASCINATING INVENTIONS OF OUR DAY.
  • 00:00:48.060 --> 00:00:51.130
  • HE EVEN BUILT A ROBOT CAPABLE OF WALKING, SITTING, AND MOVING ITS
  • 00:00:51.140 --> 00:00:55.090
  • JAW - AND SOME OF HIS ROBOTIC CONCEPTS ARE CURRENTLY BEING PUT
  • 00:00:55.100 --> 00:00:59.120
  • TO USE IN ROBOTS FOR SPACE EXPLORATION TODAY.
  • 00:00:59.130 --> 00:01:02.220
  • LOOKING BACK, IT ALMOST SEEMS LIKE LEONARDO COULD SEE INTO THE
  • 00:01:02.230 --> 00:01:06.220
  • FUTURE. WE MIGHT WONDER IF ANYONE
  • 00:01:06.230 --> 00:01:09.210
  • REALLY CAN PREDICT THE FUTURE. IN ANCIENT BABYLON, THE
  • 00:01:09.220 --> 00:01:13.100
  • PROPHET DANIEL INFORMED KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR ABOUT THE GOD OF
  • 00:01:13.110 --> 00:01:16.240
  • HEAVEN WHO REVEALED THE DEEP AND SECRET THINGS OF THE FUTURE.
  • 00:01:16.250 --> 00:01:20.230
  • SO JOIN ME NOW, FRIENDS, AS WE DISCOVER WHAT GOD'S WORD REALLY
  • 00:01:20.240 --> 00:01:23.270
  • SAYS ABOUT THE MYSTERIOUS BEASTS FROM THE PROPHECIES OF DANIEL
  • 00:01:23.280 --> 00:01:28.160
  • AND REVELATION.
  • 00:01:28.170 --> 00:01:33.290
  • -A LITTLE WHILE AGO - A FEW YEARS AGO - A TEENAGE GIRL IN
  • 00:01:34.000 --> 00:01:37.190
  • VIRGINIA WAS KIND OF SHOCKED WHEN SHE SAW, IN HER BACKYARD, A
  • 00:01:37.200 --> 00:01:42.030
  • TURTLE WITH TWO HEADS. -WOW.
  • 00:01:42.040 --> 00:01:44.210
  • -AND SHE FELT SORRY FOR THE POOR THING AND WAS A LITTLE
  • 00:01:44.220 --> 00:01:48.190
  • SHOCKED AND DIDN'T KNOW EXACTLY HOW TO REACT.
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:50.130
  • SHE TRIED TO FEED IT SOME LETTUCE AND BOTH HEADS WERE SORT
  • 00:01:50.140 --> 00:01:52.250
  • OF FIGHTING FOR THE LETTUCE. BELIEVE IT OR NOT,
  • 00:01:52.260 --> 00:01:55.150
  • TWO-HEADEDNESS IS NOT COMPLETELY UNHEARD OF IN THE
  • 00:01:55.160 --> 00:01:59.130
  • ANIMAL KINGDOM. USUALLY THOSE CREATURES DO NOT
  • 00:01:59.140 --> 00:02:02.000
  • LIVE VERY LONG BECAUSE THEY FEEL - THE TWO MINDS ARE TELLING THE
  • 00:02:02.010 --> 00:02:07.110
  • BODY TO DO TWO DIFFERENT THINGS AND THEY CAN NEVER SEEM TO AGREE
  • 00:02:07.120 --> 00:02:11.050
  • AND THEY JUST DON'T SEEM TO SURVIVE IN THE WILD.
  • 00:02:11.060 --> 00:02:14.150
  • BUT YOU'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING WITH FOUR HEADS AND YOU'VE NEVER
  • 00:02:14.160 --> 00:02:19.240
  • SEEN ANYTHING WITH SEVEN HEADS, BUT THE BIBLE TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:02:19.250 --> 00:02:23.250
  • CREATURES WITH FOUR HEADS AND SEVEN HEADS AND, IN PARTICULAR,
  • 00:02:23.260 --> 00:02:27.200
  • THERE'S A CREATURE THAT KEEPS REAPPEARING IN THE BOOK OF
  • 00:02:27.210 --> 00:02:31.110
  • REVELATION WITH SEVEN HEADS AND TEN HORNS, AND YOU'LL FIND THE
  • 00:02:31.120 --> 00:02:35.060
  • TEN HORNS ON ANOTHER BEAST IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL.
  • 00:02:35.070 --> 00:02:38.190
  • AND, AS WE LOOK AT THE EVIDENCE, YOU'LL SEE THAT THIS IS
  • 00:02:38.200 --> 00:02:42.130
  • TYPICALLY TALKING ABOUT THE SAME POWER.
  • 00:02:42.140 --> 00:02:45.220
  • WE NEED TO IDENTIFY THAT POWER BECAUSE IT'S ONE OF THE MAIN
  • 00:02:45.230 --> 00:02:48.290
  • PLAYERS IN THE LAST DAYS. THE PRESENTATION TONIGHT IS
  • 00:02:49.000 --> 00:02:51.220
  • DEALING WITH THE SUBJECT A WOMAN RIDES A BEAST .
  • 00:02:51.230 --> 00:02:55.220
  • AND THIS HEARKENS FROM A PROPHECY AND A PICTURE THAT
  • 00:02:55.230 --> 00:02:58.160
  • YOU'LL FIND IN REVELATION 17.
  • 00:02:58.170 --> 00:03:01.060
  • NOW, IN THIS PRESENTATION, IN PARTICULAR, WE'RE GOING TO BE
  • 00:03:01.070 --> 00:03:03.170
  • TALKING ABOUT, 'WHAT IS THIS BEAST THAT KEEPS REAPPEARING IN
  • 00:03:03.180 --> 00:03:08.270
  • THE BOOKS OF REVELATION AND DANIEL?'
  • 00:03:08.280 --> 00:03:12.120
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES YOU'LL WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT
  • 00:03:12.130 --> 00:03:13.250
  • REVELATION CHAPTER 17 AND THERE IT SAYS, "SO HE CARRIED ME AWAY
  • 00:03:13.260 --> 00:03:18.270
  • IN THE SPIRIT INTO THE WILDERNESS.
  • 00:03:18.280 --> 00:03:22.140
  • AND I SAW A WOMAN SITTING ON A SCARLET BEAST WHICH WAS FULL OF
  • 00:03:22.150 --> 00:03:26.270
  • NAMES OF BLASPHEMY, HAVING SEVEN HEADS AND TEN HORNS."
  • 00:03:26.280 --> 00:03:32.120
  • NOW, WE DISCUSSED THIS EARLIER AND WE'LL GIVE YOU SOME MORE
  • 00:03:32.130 --> 00:03:34.200
  • SCRIPTURES FOR IT, BUT IN THESE BIBLE SYMBOLS A WOMAN REPRESENTS
  • 00:03:34.210 --> 00:03:38.160
  • A CHURCH. 'HUSBANDS LOVE YOUR WIVES,' PAUL
  • 00:03:38.170 --> 00:03:41.270
  • SAYS, 'EVEN AS CHRIST LOVED THE CHURCH AND GAVE HIMSELF FOR IT.
  • 00:03:41.280 --> 00:03:45.260
  • I'VE LIKENED THE DAUGHTER OF ZION TO A DELICATE AND COMELY
  • 00:03:45.270 --> 00:03:48.240
  • WOMAN.' ALL THROUGH THE OLD TESTAMENT
  • 00:03:48.250 --> 00:03:50.270
  • GOD COMPARES ISRAEL TO HIS BRIDE.
  • 00:03:50.280 --> 00:03:54.130
  • SO HIS PEOPLE - IT'S OFTEN IDENTIFIED WITH A WOMAN.
  • 00:03:54.140 --> 00:03:57.050
  • YOU'VE GOT TWO DIFFERENT KINDS OF WOMAN THAT ARE THERE, BOTH IN
  • 00:03:57.060 --> 00:03:59.290
  • THE OLD AND THE NEW TESTAMENT, THE FAITHFUL AND THE UNFAITHFUL,
  • 00:04:00.020 --> 00:04:04.080
  • AND THIS WOMAN IS, EVIDENTLY, NOT THE FAITHFUL ONE BECAUSE IT
  • 00:04:04.090 --> 00:04:08.180
  • SAYS SHE'S GOT A PARAGRAPH ON HER FOREHEAD THAT SAYS,
  • 00:04:08.190 --> 00:04:11.130
  • 'MOTHER OF HARLOTS'. THAT WOULD SORT OF
  • 00:04:11.140 --> 00:04:12.230
  • BE A CLUE, RIGHT? SHE'S NOT THE FAITHFUL WIFE.
  • 00:04:12.240 --> 00:04:16.210
  • NOW, YOU SEE THESE TWO WOMEN IDENTIFIED THERE IN REVELATION -
  • 00:04:16.220 --> 00:04:19.190
  • REVELATION 12 YOU'VE GOT THE GOOD ONE.
  • 00:04:19.200 --> 00:04:22.060
  • SO, WHAT'S THE CONNECTION NOW BETWEEN THE WOMAN IN REVELATION
  • 00:04:22.070 --> 00:04:26.290
  • 12 - THERE'S ANOTHER BEAST THAT APPEARS TO HER.
  • 00:04:27.000 --> 00:04:30.160
  • YOU LOOK IN REVELATION 12, VERSE 3, "AND THERE APPEARED ANOTHER
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:33.130
  • WONDER IN HEAVEN: AND BEHOLD A GREAT RED DRAGON - SAME AS THE
  • 00:04:33.140 --> 00:04:37.190
  • SCARLET THAT YOU FIND IN REVELATION 17 - "HAVING SEVEN
  • 00:04:37.200 --> 00:04:41.050
  • HEADS AND TEN HORNS," - SAME BEAST - "AND SEVEN CROWNS UPON
  • 00:04:41.060 --> 00:04:45.080
  • HIS HEADS." AND IT GOES ON TO SAY THAT THIS BEAST IS TRYING TO
  • 00:04:45.090 --> 00:04:49.240
  • ATTACK THIS WOMAN. SO HERE IN REVELATION 17 YOU'VE
  • 00:04:49.250 --> 00:04:52.190
  • GOT THIS RED SEVEN-HEADED TEN-HORNED BEAST THE
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:55.230
  • WOMAN IS RIDING THE BEAST. THEY'RE IN COOPERATION.
  • 00:04:55.240 --> 00:04:59.140
  • AND THEN YOU GO TO REVELATION 12, THAT SAME BEAST IS TRYING TO
  • 00:04:59.150 --> 00:05:02.200
  • DESTROY THIS WOMAN. SHE'S CLOTHED WITH LIGHT -
  • 00:05:02.210 --> 00:05:05.150
  • THE SYMBOL OF GOD'S CHURCH. I HAVE ANOTHER STUDY
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:07.100
  • TALKING ABOUT THAT. NOW GO TO REVELATION 13 - YOU
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:11.270
  • KNOW REVELATION 13 - YOU'VE HEARD OF 6-6-6?
  • 00:05:11.280 --> 00:05:14.230
  • -YEAH. -MARK OF THE BEAST?
  • 00:05:14.240 --> 00:05:16.100
  • THAT'S REVELATION 13. AND YOU CAN READ THERE, IT SAYS,
  • 00:05:16.110 --> 00:05:20.220
  • "AND I SAW A BEAST RISING UP OUT OF THE SEA," - NOTICE THE SEA
  • 00:05:20.230 --> 00:05:24.220
  • - "HAVING SEVEN HEADS AND TEN HORNS" - SOUND FAMILIAR?
  • 00:05:24.230 --> 00:05:30.050
  • - "AND ON HIS HORNS TEN CROWNS, AND ON HIS HEADS A BLASPHEMOUS
  • 00:05:30.060 --> 00:05:34.080
  • NAME." BLASPHEMY IS WHEN SOMEONE
  • 00:05:34.090 --> 00:05:36.260
  • IS DEGRADING GOD BY PUTTING THEMSELVES IN THE PLACE OF GOD
  • 00:05:36.270 --> 00:05:40.230
  • OR CLAIMING THE PREROGATIVES OF GOD. AND SO, YOU NOTICE THAT THE
  • 00:05:40.240 --> 00:05:44.220
  • WOMAN, NAMES OF BLASPHEMY - DANIEL 7 TALKS ABOUT THIS BEAST
  • 00:05:44.230 --> 00:05:48.280
  • POWER AS BLASPHEMY AND HERE YOU SEE THAT CREATURE AGAIN.
  • 00:05:48.290 --> 00:05:53.120
  • NOW, I JUST NEED TO TELL EVERYBODY, STRAIGHT UP, AS
  • 00:05:53.130 --> 00:05:56.270
  • NICELY AS I CAN, THAT - YOU WANT ME TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH, RIGHT?
  • 00:05:56.280 --> 00:06:01.060
  • -YEAH. -PAUL ASKS A QUESTION.
  • 00:06:01.070 --> 00:06:03.260
  • HE SAID, 'AM I YOUR ENEMY BECAUSE I TELL YOU THE TRUTH?'
  • 00:06:03.270 --> 00:06:07.020
  • I HOPE YOU DIDN'T COME BECAUSE YOU JUST WANT ME TO PREACH
  • 00:06:07.030 --> 00:06:09.150
  • SMOOTH THINGS. YOU WANT TO KNOW, 'WHAT
  • 00:06:09.160 --> 00:06:11.030
  • DOES THE BIBLE REALLY SAY?' IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, GOD'S WORD
  • 00:06:11.040 --> 00:06:14.260
  • IS VERY FAITHFUL TO NOT ONLY TALK ABOUT THE WAY HE
  • 00:06:14.270 --> 00:06:17.250
  • WOULD BLESS HIS PEOPLE. AND THERE WERE MANY TIMES GOD'S
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:20.180
  • PEOPLE WERE FAITHFUL AND THERE WERE MIRACLES WROUGHT.
  • 00:06:20.190 --> 00:06:22.240
  • HE SAID, 'ONE OF YOU WILL CHASE A THOUSAND.' AND THEN HE SAID,
  • 00:06:22.250 --> 00:06:26.250
  • 'YOU'LL TURN FROM ME. YOU'LL WORSHIP OTHER GODS.'
  • 00:06:26.260 --> 00:06:29.050
  • AND HE PROPHESIED THEIR UNFAITHFULNESS.
  • 00:06:29.060 --> 00:06:32.000
  • AND THE WORD THAT GOD USED, HE SAID, 'YOU WILL GO WHORING AFTER
  • 00:06:32.010 --> 00:06:35.060
  • OTHER GODS.' HE'S TALKING ABOUT HIS PEOPLE.
  • 00:06:35.070 --> 00:06:39.170
  • NOW, HE ALSO DOES THAT IN NEW TESTAMENT TIMES.
  • 00:06:39.180 --> 00:06:44.000
  • EVEN PAUL SAID, 'I KNOW, AFTER MY DEPARTURE, GRIEVOUS WOLVES
  • 00:06:44.010 --> 00:06:46.210
  • WILL COME IN NOT SPARING THE FLOCK.
  • 00:06:46.220 --> 00:06:48.220
  • FROM AMONG YOUR OWN SELVES PEOPLE WILL ARISE SPEAKING
  • 00:06:48.230 --> 00:06:51.230
  • PERVERSE THINGS TO DRAW AWAY DISCIPLES AFTER THEMSELVES.' SO,
  • 00:06:51.240 --> 00:06:55.190
  • EVEN PAUL PREDICTED SOMETHING'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:06:55.200 --> 00:06:57.280
  • THE DEVIL IS GOING TO COME AFTER THE CHURCH AND THERE'S GOING TO
  • 00:06:57.290 --> 00:07:00.160
  • BE MAJOR UNFAITHFULNESS. WELL, I'M GOING TO TELL YOU
  • 00:07:00.170 --> 00:07:05.080
  • RIGHT NOW, IN REVELATION CHAPTER 13 - IT'S NOT JUST ONE BEAST -
  • 00:07:05.090 --> 00:07:08.280
  • REVELATION CHAPTER 13, THERE ARE TWO BEASTS. DID YOU KNOW THAT?
  • 00:07:08.290 --> 00:07:12.060
  • WE ALWAYS TALK ABOUT THE MARK OF THE BEAST - CHAPTER ACTUALLY HAS
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:14.090
  • TWO BEASTS. YOU SEE IN CHAPTER 13, FIRST FEW
  • 00:07:14.100 --> 00:07:17.230
  • VERSES TALKS ABOUT THE FIRST BEAST. LATER ON, YOU GET TO
  • 00:07:17.240 --> 00:07:21.170
  • VERSE 11, IT SAYS, 'AND THEN I SAW A SECOND BEAST.'
  • 00:07:21.180 --> 00:07:24.040
  • I'LL TELL YOU RIGHT NOW, I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE, I'M
  • 00:07:24.050 --> 00:07:28.020
  • TALKING ABOUT SYSTEMS AND AREAS WHERE CHURCHES HAVE BEEN
  • 00:07:28.030 --> 00:07:33.070
  • DISOBEDIENT. AND THIS HAS BEEN FORETOLD IN PROPHECY.
  • 00:07:33.080 --> 00:07:37.130
  • SO YOU WANT ME TO KEEP GOING? -YES.
  • 00:07:37.140 --> 00:07:39.060
  • -I JUST - I WANT TO BE FAITHFUL.
  • 00:07:39.070 --> 00:07:40.160
  • I WANT TO BE KIND, BUT I DON'T WANT TO MINCE WORDS WITH YOU.
  • 00:07:40.170 --> 00:07:44.010
  • SO WITH THAT BACKGROUND, YOU'VE GOT THIS BEAST THAT KEEPS
  • 00:07:44.020 --> 00:07:47.010
  • APPEARING - SEVEN HEADS, TEN HORNS.
  • 00:07:47.020 --> 00:07:49.080
  • WE'RE GOING TO FIND OUT 'WHO IS THIS BEAST?'
  • 00:07:49.090 --> 00:07:51.070
  • IT'S ALSO KNOW AS 'THE ANTICHRIST'.
  • 00:07:51.080 --> 00:07:53.110
  • NOW, THE WORD 'ANTICHRIST' MEANS 'AGAINST CHRIST'.
  • 00:07:53.120 --> 00:07:57.050
  • HOW MANY TIMES DOES THE WORD 'ANTICHRIST' APPEAR IN
  • 00:07:57.060 --> 00:07:58.250
  • REVELATION? NOT AT ALL. I TOLD YOU THAT EARLIER - IT'S
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:08:03.160
  • ONLY IN THE LETTERS OF JOHN. AND JOHN SAYS THERE ALREADY WERE
  • 00:08:03.170 --> 00:08:08.050
  • MANY ANTICHRISTS, EVEN IN HIS DAY. SO THE WORD 'ANTICHRIST'
  • 00:08:08.060 --> 00:08:11.100
  • CAN BE USED BROADLY, BUT THE MAIN BEAST IS ALSO CALLED
  • 00:08:11.110 --> 00:08:14.080
  • 'THE ANTICHRIST'. IT'S LIKE THE INDUSTRIAL
  • 00:08:14.090 --> 00:08:17.090
  • STRENGTH ANTICHRIST ON STEROIDS THAT YOU FIND THERE
  • 00:08:17.100 --> 00:08:19.280
  • THROUGH THE BOOK. ALRIGHT, SO LET'S FIND
  • 00:08:19.290 --> 00:08:22.070
  • OUT FIRST ABOUT BEASTS. QUESTION #1: WHAT DOES A
  • 00:08:22.080 --> 00:08:25.180
  • BEAST REPRESENT IN PROPHECY? WE'RE GOING TO LET THE
  • 00:08:25.190 --> 00:08:28.290
  • BIBLE EXPLAIN ITSELF. IF YOU LOOK, FOR INSTANCE, IN
  • 00:08:29.000 --> 00:08:32.090
  • DANIEL CHAPTER 7, VERSE 17, IT SAYS, "THOSE GREAT BEASTS, WHICH
  • 00:08:32.100 --> 00:08:36.290
  • ARE FOUR, ARE FOUR KINGS WHICH ARISE OUT OF THE EARTH."
  • 00:08:37.000 --> 00:08:41.020
  • NOT JUST KINGS, BUT IT ALSO INCLUDES KINGDOMS - THOSE GREAT
  • 00:08:41.030 --> 00:08:44.130
  • BEASTS WHICH ARE FOUR - OR, "THE FOURTH BEAST" - RATHER - "SHALL
  • 00:08:44.140 --> 00:08:47.130
  • BE THE FOURTH KINGDOM" - SO YOU'VE GOT - IT'S KINGS - IT'S
  • 00:08:47.140 --> 00:08:50.250
  • KINGDOMS - IT'S TALKING ABOUT POWERS.
  • 00:08:50.260 --> 00:08:52.240
  • LOOK IN DANIEL 8, VERSE 20 AND YOU'LL SEE THERE WHERE THERE'S
  • 00:08:52.250 --> 00:08:56.050
  • THIS VISION OF SHEEP AND GOATS AND IT SAYS, 'THE RAM WHICH YOU
  • 00:08:56.060 --> 00:09:00.120
  • SAW, HAVING THE TWO HORNS - THEY ARE THE KINGS OF MEDIA AND
  • 00:09:00.130 --> 00:09:05.010
  • PERSIA, AND THE MALE GOAT IS THE KINGDOM OF GREECE."
  • 00:09:05.020 --> 00:09:09.140
  • SO HERE IT'S GOT A GOAT THAT REPRESENTS - AND IT SAYS THE
  • 00:09:09.150 --> 00:09:12.240
  • HORN BETWEEN HIS EYES IS THE FIRST KING.
  • 00:09:12.250 --> 00:09:16.100
  • LATER WE LEARN THAT'S ALEXANDER THE GREAT.
  • 00:09:16.110 --> 00:09:18.240
  • IT MAKES IT PRETTY CLEAR. SO, YOU KNOW, IF - TODAY, DO
  • 00:09:18.250 --> 00:09:23.150
  • WE SOMETIMES USE COUNTRIES TO ILLUSTRATE - OR ANIMALS
  • 00:09:23.160 --> 00:09:26.050
  • TO ILLUSTRATE COUNTRIES? IF I SAY 'BEAR' WHAT
  • 00:09:26.060 --> 00:09:29.120
  • COUNTRY DO YOU THINK OF? -RUSSIA.
  • 00:09:29.130 --> 00:09:31.000
  • -RUSSIA. AND, IF I SAY EAGLE - -UNITED STATES.
  • 00:09:31.010 --> 00:09:33.210
  • -THE UNITED STATES. AND THE LION IS -
  • 00:09:33.220 --> 00:09:36.270
  • GREAT BRITAIN, EXACTLY. SO, IT'S NOT NEW OR UNUSUAL.
  • 00:09:36.280 --> 00:09:41.170
  • COUNTRIES HAVE DONE THAT AND SO GOD DOES THIS ALSO IN PROPHECY.
  • 00:09:41.180 --> 00:09:45.070
  • ALRIGHT, QUESTION 2: IS THERE A BEAST WITH TEN HORNS IN DANIEL
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:49.160
  • CHAPTER 7. NOW WE'RE JUMPING TO THE OLD
  • 00:09:49.170 --> 00:09:52.160
  • TESTAMENT AND I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WE SET THE
  • 00:09:52.170 --> 00:09:54.220
  • FOUNDATION FOR REVELATION. YOU REMEMBER WHAT I SAID, OUT
  • 00:09:54.230 --> 00:09:57.150
  • OF 404 VERSES IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION, 278 OF THEM ARE
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:10:02.220
  • FOUND ALMOST VERBATIM IN THE OLD TESTAMENT.
  • 00:10:02.230 --> 00:10:06.020

  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION AND ITS PROPHECIES ARE CONFUSING.
  • 00:10:21.130 --> 00:10:24.220

  • 00:10:24.230 --> 00:10:28.070

  • LET'S RETURN, NOW, TO TODAY'S PRESENTATION AND LEARN SOME MORE
  • 00:11:19.220 --> 00:11:22.250
  • AMAZING FACTS FROM THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:11:22.260 --> 00:11:27.080
  • -LOOK IN DANIEL CHAPTER 7, VERSES 2 AND 3 AND DANIEL SAYS,
  • 00:11:27.090 --> 00:11:31.130
  • "...IN MY VISION BY NIGHT, AND BEHOLD, THE FOUR WINDS OF
  • 00:11:31.140 --> 00:11:35.120
  • HEAVEN WERE STIRRING UP THE GREAT SEA."
  • 00:11:35.130 --> 00:11:38.130
  • - SO IT TALKS ABOUT THESE WINDS STRIVING - "AND FOUR GREAT
  • 00:11:38.140 --> 00:11:41.150
  • BEASTS CAME UP FROM THE SEA, EACH DIFFERENT FROM THE OTHER."
  • 00:11:41.160 --> 00:11:45.250
  • MATTER OF FACT, I'M GOING TO READ SEVERAL VERSES HERE IN
  • 00:11:45.260 --> 00:11:47.220
  • DANIEL CHAPTER 7 - IF YOU BROUGHT YOUR BIBLE WITH YOU, YOU
  • 00:11:47.230 --> 00:11:51.090
  • MAY WANT TO JOIN ME AND TURN THERE REAL QUICK.
  • 00:11:51.100 --> 00:11:53.120
  • LET'S JUST TAKE A LOOK, FOR INSTANCE, VERSE 3 - DANIEL 7:3 -
  • 00:11:53.130 --> 00:11:56.250
  • "AND FOUR GREAT BEASTS CAME UP FROM THE SEA, EACH DIFFERENT
  • 00:11:56.260 --> 00:11:59.080
  • FROM THE OTHER. THE FIRST WAS LIKE A LION."
  • 00:11:59.090 --> 00:12:02.060
  • - LIKE A WHAT? -LION.
  • 00:12:02.070 --> 00:12:03.210
  • -"FIRST WAS LIKE A LION AND IT HAD EAGLE'S WINGS AND I WATCHED
  • 00:12:03.220 --> 00:12:07.280
  • UNTIL THE WINGS WERE PLUCKED OFF: AND IT WAS LIFTED UP FROM
  • 00:12:07.290 --> 00:12:10.200
  • THE EARTH AND MADE TO STAND ON TWO FEET LIKE A MAN, AND A MAN'S
  • 00:12:10.210 --> 00:12:14.010
  • HEART WAS GIVEN TO IT. AND SUDDENLY ANOTHER BEAST, A
  • 00:12:14.020 --> 00:12:17.090
  • SECOND LIKE A BEAR IT WAS RAISED UP ON ONE SIDE, AND HAD THREE
  • 00:12:17.100 --> 00:12:21.100
  • RIBS IN ITS MOUTH BETWEEN ITS TEETH.
  • 00:12:21.110 --> 00:12:23.140
  • AND THEY SAID THUS TO IT: 'ARISE, DEVOUR MUCH FLESH.' AND
  • 00:12:23.150 --> 00:12:27.040
  • AFTER THIS I LOOKED AND THERE WAS ANOTHER LIKE A LEOPARD WHICH
  • 00:12:27.050 --> 00:12:30.090
  • HAD ON ITS BACK FOUR WINGS OF A BIRD AND THE BEAST ALSO HAD FOUR
  • 00:12:30.100 --> 00:12:34.060
  • HEADS" - I TOLD YOU, YOU CAN FIND A BEAST WITH FOUR HEADS IN
  • 00:12:34.070 --> 00:12:36.120
  • THE BIBLE - "AND DOMINION WAS GIVEN TO IT."
  • 00:12:36.130 --> 00:12:39.270
  • AND THEN, NOW THIS IS THE BEAST THAT IS THE ANTICHRIST - "AND
  • 00:12:39.280 --> 00:12:44.160
  • THEN, AFTER THIS, I SAW IN THE NIGHT VISIONS AND BEHOLD, A
  • 00:12:44.170 --> 00:12:47.280
  • FOURTH BEAST, DREADFUL AND TERRIBLE, EXCEEDINGLY STRONG.
  • 00:12:47.290 --> 00:12:53.060
  • IT HAD HUGE IRON TEETH: IT WAS DEVOURING, BREAKING IN PIECES,
  • 00:12:53.070 --> 00:12:57.170
  • AND TRAMPLING THE RESIDUE WITH ITS FEET, IT WAS DIFFERENT FROM
  • 00:12:57.180 --> 00:13:00.180
  • ALL THE BEASTS THAT WERE BEFORE IT, AND IT HAD TEN HORNS."
  • 00:13:00.190 --> 00:13:05.160
  • THAT SOUND FAMILIAR? -YEP.
  • 00:13:05.170 --> 00:13:07.140
  • -I JUST WANT TO READ A LITTLE FURTHER.
  • 00:13:07.150 --> 00:13:08.240
  • LET'S GO TO VERSE 8, "I WAS CONSIDERING THE HORNS, AND THERE
  • 00:13:08.250 --> 00:13:13.020
  • WAS ANOTHER HORN, A LITTLE ONE, COMING UP AMONG THEM, BEFORE
  • 00:13:13.030 --> 00:13:16.160
  • WHOM THREE OF THE FIRST HORNS WERE PLUCKED OUT BY THE ROOTS."
  • 00:13:16.170 --> 00:13:20.040
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG AND A KID STARTS GETTING THEIR
  • 00:13:20.050 --> 00:13:21.280
  • GROWN-UP TEETH AND STARTS PUSHING OUT THE BABY TEETH, IT'S
  • 00:13:21.290 --> 00:13:24.280
  • ALMOST THAT KIND OF A PICTURE THAT THIS LITTLE HORN COMES UP,
  • 00:13:24.290 --> 00:13:27.160
  • BUT IT'S PUSHING OUT THREE HORNS AS IT MAKES ITS WAY.
  • 00:13:27.170 --> 00:13:31.000
  • AND SO - AND IT SAYS, 'IN THIS HORN' - DON'T MISS THIS - "WERE
  • 00:13:31.010 --> 00:13:35.140
  • EYES LIKE THE EYES OF A MAN, AND A MOUTH SPEAKING POMPOUS WORDS."
  • 00:13:35.150 --> 00:13:39.130
  • OR THAT CAN BE INTERPRETED 'BLASPHEMOUS' WORDS.
  • 00:13:39.140 --> 00:13:43.230
  • ALRIGHT, AND THIS FINAL BEAST DANIEL IS REALLY WORRIED ABOUT
  • 00:13:43.240 --> 00:13:47.050
  • BECAUSE IT PERSECUTES GOD'S PEOPLE, YOU READ ON IN THE REST
  • 00:13:47.060 --> 00:13:50.030
  • OF THE CHAPTER THERE. BUT I JUST WANT TO GIVE YOU
  • 00:13:50.040 --> 00:13:51.270
  • THE FOUNDATION ABOUT THE BEAST BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO TRY
  • 00:13:51.280 --> 00:13:53.270
  • TO IDENTIFY THIS BEAST IN REVELATION - I SHOULD SAY THE
  • 00:13:53.280 --> 00:13:57.220
  • BEASTS IN REVELATION - THAT WILL HAVE A PROMINENT ROLE
  • 00:13:57.230 --> 00:14:02.150
  • IN THE LAST DAYS. AND SO, WE LEARNED THAT ONE OF
  • 00:14:02.160 --> 00:14:05.170
  • THOSE BEASTS IN DANIEL, THE FOURTH BEAST, ALSO
  • 00:14:05.180 --> 00:14:07.220
  • HAD TEN HORNS. "...DEVOURING, BREAKING IN
  • 00:14:07.230 --> 00:14:10.290
  • PIECES, AND TRAMPLING THE RESIDUE WITH ITS FEET.
  • 00:14:11.000 --> 00:14:13.180
  • IT WAS DIFFERENT FROM ALL THE BEASTS THAT WERE BEFORE IT."
  • 00:14:13.190 --> 00:14:17.020
  • AND SO I WANT YOU TO NOTICE SOME OF THESE POINTS.
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:19.070
  • ALRIGHT, FIRST OF ALL, THESE CREATURES IN DANIEL, THEY COME
  • 00:14:19.080 --> 00:14:21.210
  • UP OUT OF THE SEA. SO WHAT DOES THE WIND
  • 00:14:21.220 --> 00:14:25.040
  • AND THE SEA REPRESENT? WELL, WIND, WE TALKED ABOUT THE
  • 00:14:25.050 --> 00:14:29.030
  • WINDS OF STRIFE THERE, REMEMBER, IN REVELATION CHAPTER 7.
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:32.100
  • IT'S TALKING ABOUT TURMOIL AND STRIFE, DESTRUCTION, COMMOTION.
  • 00:14:32.110 --> 00:14:36.180
  • AND WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT THE WATERS, THE DEFINITION FOR THESE
  • 00:14:36.190 --> 00:14:39.270
  • SYMBOLS IS IN THE BIBLE. THE ANGEL TOLD JOHN, IN
  • 00:14:39.280 --> 00:14:43.020
  • REVELATION 17, VERSE 15, "THE WATERS...ARE PEOPLES, AND
  • 00:14:43.030 --> 00:14:47.090
  • MULTITUDES, AND NATIONS, AND TONGUES."
  • 00:14:47.100 --> 00:14:49.170
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT VAST NUMBERS OF PEOPLE.
  • 00:14:49.180 --> 00:14:52.100
  • BY THE WAY, IF YOU READ IN DANIEL CHAPTER 9 IT SAYS THAT
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:55.000
  • THE WICKED POWER WOULD COME LIKE A FLOOD - TALKING ABOUT A FLOOD
  • 00:14:55.010 --> 00:14:57.260
  • OF ARMY - A FLOOD OF PEOPLE. AND SO, THIS BEAST POWER RISES
  • 00:14:57.270 --> 00:15:01.090
  • UP OUT OF A DENSELY POPULATED PART OF CIVILIZATION
  • 00:15:01.100 --> 00:15:04.250
  • AND THE WORLD. ALRIGHT, NEXT, QUESTION 4: WHAT
  • 00:15:04.260 --> 00:15:08.200
  • KINGDOM DOES THE LION REPRESENT? I WANT TO MARCH THROUGH BECAUSE,
  • 00:15:08.210 --> 00:15:11.280
  • IN ORDER TO UNDERSTAND THE FOURTH BEAST, YOU'VE GOT TO LOOK
  • 00:15:11.290 --> 00:15:14.230
  • AT THE SEQUENCE OF HISTORY AND IT JUST BECOMES REALLY CLEAR.
  • 00:15:14.240 --> 00:15:17.290
  • WHAT KINGDOM DOES THE LION REPRESENT?
  • 00:15:18.000 --> 00:15:20.110
  • THE LION IS BABYLON. IF YOU LOOK IN CHAPTER 2 OF
  • 00:15:20.120 --> 00:15:25.220
  • DANIEL, DANIEL MAKES IT PRETTY CLEAR TO NEBUCHADNEZZAR.
  • 00:15:25.230 --> 00:15:28.210
  • HE SAID, 'YOU ARE THAT FIRST PRIMARY KINGDOM.
  • 00:15:28.220 --> 00:15:30.240
  • YOU ARE THE HEAD OF GOLD.' IT JUST SAYS BABYLON IS THE LION.
  • 00:15:30.250 --> 00:15:34.050
  • MATTER OF FACT, IF YOU GO TO SOME OF THE MUSEUMS, THEY HAVE
  • 00:15:34.060 --> 00:15:37.210
  • RECOVERED SOME OF THE ANCIENT GATES FROM BABYLON - I THINK
  • 00:15:37.220 --> 00:15:41.040
  • THEY CALL IT THE ISHTAR GATE - AND YOU CAN EVEN SEE THEY HAD
  • 00:15:41.050 --> 00:15:44.130
  • LIONS WITH WINGS THAT WERE ON - JUST LIKE IN DANIEL'S VISION, A
  • 00:15:44.140 --> 00:15:48.220
  • LION WITH TWO WINGS. WHY DID DANIEL SAY THE LION
  • 00:15:48.230 --> 00:15:51.030
  • WOULD STAND ON ITS FEET LIKE A MAN?
  • 00:15:51.040 --> 00:15:53.060
  • BECAUSE KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR ENDED UP BEING CONVERTED.
  • 00:15:53.070 --> 00:15:56.160
  • INSTEAD OF BEING A BEAST, HE BECAME A SON OF GOD.
  • 00:15:56.170 --> 00:16:00.100
  • HE BECAME CONVERTED BEFORE THE END OF HIS LIFE AND HE GLORIFIED
  • 00:16:00.110 --> 00:16:02.140
  • GOD. IF YOU'VE READ DANIEL CHAPTER
  • 00:16:02.150 --> 00:16:04.160
  • 4, THAT WOULD BE IN. WHAT KINGDOM DOES
  • 00:16:04.170 --> 00:16:09.230
  • THE BEAR REPRESENT? SO YOU'VE GOT BABYLON, THEN
  • 00:16:09.240 --> 00:16:12.040
  • YOU'VE GOT THE NEXT KINGDOM. HE REPRESENTS, IN DANIEL CHAPTER
  • 00:16:12.050 --> 00:16:15.150
  • 7:5, AND WHAT DO THE THREE RIBS IN HIS MOUTH SYMBOLIZE?
  • 00:16:15.160 --> 00:16:19.130
  • THIS IS THE MEDO-PERSIAN KINGDOM, LATER THE PERSIANS,
  • 00:16:19.140 --> 00:16:21.290
  • THEY WERE MORE POWERFUL AND THAT'S WHY IT SAYS THE BEAR WAS
  • 00:16:22.000 --> 00:16:24.090
  • RAISED UP ON ONE SIDE - HE'S STRONGER ON ONE SIDE - HE'S GOT
  • 00:16:24.100 --> 00:16:27.290
  • THREE RIBS IN HIS MOUTH. THIS REPRESENTS THE THREE
  • 00:16:28.000 --> 00:16:30.230
  • KINGDOMS THAT THE MEDO-PERSIANS CONQUERED WHEN THEY TOOK THE
  • 00:16:30.240 --> 00:16:34.080
  • EMPIRE AWAY - THIS WORLD POWER - FROM BABYLON.
  • 00:16:34.090 --> 00:16:37.250
  • AND THAT WAS, OF COURSE, BABYLON, LYDIA, AND EGYPT -
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:40.160
  • THAT'S THE THREE RIBS IN HIS MOUTH.
  • 00:16:40.170 --> 00:16:42.110
  • AND SO, ALL THESE THINGS HAPPENED HISTORICALLY.
  • 00:16:42.120 --> 00:16:45.090
  • NOW, BEFORE I GO ANY FARTHER, I JUST NEED TO INJECT A THOUGHT.
  • 00:16:45.100 --> 00:16:48.230
  • THESE BEASTS THAT ARE MENTIONED HERE IN DANIEL, THEY'RE NOT
  • 00:16:48.240 --> 00:16:52.290
  • SAYING THEY'RE THE ONLY KINGDOMS IN THE WORLD, I MEAN, AT THE
  • 00:16:53.000 --> 00:16:56.000
  • TIME THAT BABYLON RULED, IT WAS A VAST WORLD EMPIRE, AND SO WERE
  • 00:16:56.010 --> 00:16:59.060
  • THE GREEKS AND SO WERE THE PERSIANS.
  • 00:16:59.070 --> 00:17:02.200
  • IF YOU KNOW YOUR HISTORY, THERE WERE GREAT EMPIRES - THE INCAS
  • 00:17:02.210 --> 00:17:06.160
  • IN SOUTH AMERICA, THE TOLTECS AND YOU HAD THE ROU - KHMER
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:12.150
  • EMPIRE AND YOU HAD THE CHINESE, THE MONGOLS, AND THERE WAS OTHER
  • 00:17:12.160 --> 00:17:16.000
  • GREAT EMPIRES. THESE EMPIRES ARE MENTIONED
  • 00:17:16.010 --> 00:17:18.250
  • BECAUSE THEY ALL OCCUPIED GOD'S PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:18.260 --> 00:17:21.260
  • THEY CONTROLLED THE LAND OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:17:21.270 --> 00:17:24.030
  • SO THE ONLY EMPIRES THAT ARE BEING MENTIONED IN THESE VISIONS
  • 00:17:24.040 --> 00:17:27.030
  • ARE THE ONES THAT HAD A REAL IMPACT ON THE POLICIES AND THE
  • 00:17:27.040 --> 00:17:31.240
  • LAND OF ISRAEL, LATER, GOD'S PEOPLE, OKAY?
  • 00:17:31.250 --> 00:17:35.020
  • SO THESE ARE THE NATIONS THAT IT'S DEALING WITH, AND THAT'S
  • 00:17:35.030 --> 00:17:37.190
  • THE REASON. SO WHAT KINGDOM IS REPRESENTED
  • 00:17:37.200 --> 00:17:40.000
  • BY THE LEOPARD WITH FOUR HEADS? WHAT FOLLOWED THE
  • 00:17:40.010 --> 00:17:44.130
  • PERSIAN KINGDOM? -GREECE.
  • 00:17:44.140 --> 00:17:46.110
  • -I THINK WE ALL KNOW, ALEXANDER THE GREAT DEFEATED DARIUS.
  • 00:17:46.120 --> 00:17:49.160
  • HE WAS THAT NOTABLE HORN THAT WAS IN THE RAM'S HEAD - OR IN
  • 00:17:49.170 --> 00:17:55.130
  • THE GOAT'S HEAD - AND THEN HE ALSO REPRESENTS THE FIRST KING
  • 00:17:55.140 --> 00:17:59.200
  • OF THE LEOPARD, BUT HE DIED AND THEN HIS KINGDOM WAS THEN SPREAD
  • 00:17:59.210 --> 00:18:04.010
  • AMONG HIS FOUR GENERALS. AND YOU CAN SEE THAT
  • 00:18:04.020 --> 00:18:08.090
  • THEY HAD A VAST EMPIRE. THE FOUR GENERALS WHO HEADED THE
  • 00:18:08.100 --> 00:18:12.170
  • DIVISIONS OF ALEXANDER'S KINGDOM WERE CASSANDER, LYSIMACHUS,
  • 00:18:12.180 --> 00:18:17.030
  • PTOLEMY, AND SELEUCUS. AND SO THESE ARE
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:20.220
  • THE FOUR EMPIRES. YOU CAN SEE THE SCOPE OF
  • 00:18:20.230 --> 00:18:23.280
  • ALEXANDER'S KINGDOM THERE. SOMEONE TOLD ME THAT IN JUST TEN
  • 00:18:23.290 --> 00:18:27.280
  • YEARS HE MARCHED HIS SOLDIERS 22.000 MILES.
  • 00:18:27.290 --> 00:18:32.060
  • NOBODY HAS EVER DONE ANYTHING LIKE THAT IN HISTORY, JUST
  • 00:18:32.070 --> 00:18:35.150
  • CONQUERING EVERYTHING EVERY WHERE HE WENT.
  • 00:18:35.160 --> 00:18:37.090
  • AND HIS APPROACH WAS VERY DIFFERENT.
  • 00:18:37.100 --> 00:18:38.230
  • HE DIDN'T JUST WANT TO CONQUER, HE WANTED TO SPREAD THEIR
  • 00:18:38.240 --> 00:18:41.060
  • PHILOSOPHY AND WAY OF LIFE. THEY CALL IT HELLENIZATION.
  • 00:18:41.070 --> 00:18:44.170
  • THAT'S WHY THE NEW TESTAMENT'S WRITTEN IN GREEK, BECAUSE THAT
  • 00:18:44.180 --> 00:18:46.250
  • INFLUENCE EVEN STAYED WITH THE NEXT EMPIRE THAT WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:18:46.260 --> 00:18:50.160
  • GET TO, WHICH IS OUR NEXT QUESTION.
  • 00:18:50.170 --> 00:18:54.140
  • WHICH WORLD KINGDOM IS REPRESENTED BY THE FOURTH BEAST?
  • 00:18:54.150 --> 00:18:58.150
  • NOW, IF YOU KNOW YOUR HISTORY, THE WORLD EMPIRE SURROUNDING THE
  • 00:18:58.160 --> 00:19:02.280
  • MEDITERRANEAN THAT OCCUPIED ISRAEL - YOU'VE GOT BABYLON,
  • 00:19:02.290 --> 00:19:07.130
  • YOU'VE GOT MEDO-PERSIA, YOU'VE GOT GREECE, THEN WHO CONQUERED
  • 00:19:07.140 --> 00:19:12.070
  • THE GREEKS? -ROME.
  • 00:19:12.080 --> 00:19:14.040
  • -ROME. AND, YOU KNOW, WHAT'S ALSO INTERESTING IS EACH KINGDOM
  • 00:19:14.050 --> 00:19:18.210
  • LASTED A LITTLE LONGER THAN THE ONE BEFORE IT.
  • 00:19:18.220 --> 00:19:22.090
  • SO THE DEVIL'S LEARNING SOMETHING ALONG THE WAY AND
  • 00:19:22.100 --> 00:19:24.130
  • THEY'RE GETTING STRONGER AND THEY'RE LASTING LONGER.
  • 00:19:24.140 --> 00:19:26.290
  • YOU CAN READ WHICH KINGDOM IT WAS, IT'S RIGHT THERE IN THE NEW
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:29.110
  • TESTAMENT. LUKE 2, VERSE 1, "AND IT CAME TO
  • 00:19:29.120 --> 00:19:32.050
  • PASS IN THOSE DAYS THAT A DECREE WENT OUT FROM CAESAR AUGUSTUS."
  • 00:19:32.060 --> 00:19:36.090
  • - OCTAVIAN - AUGUSTUS CAESAR ISSUED THAT DECREE THAT ALL THE
  • 00:19:36.100 --> 00:19:39.190
  • WORLD SHOULD BE TAXED. HE WAS THE EMPEROR OF ROME.
  • 00:19:39.200 --> 00:19:43.220
  • AND SO, THAT'S - BY THE WAY, WHERE YOU GET THE MONTH AUGUST.
  • 00:19:43.230 --> 00:19:47.030
  • AND THE REASON FEBRUARY IS SHORT IS BECAUSE JULIUS CAESAR NAMED A
  • 00:19:47.040 --> 00:19:53.290
  • MONTH AFTER HIMSELF, THAT'S CALLED JULY, AND AUGUSTUS CAESAR
  • 00:19:54.000 --> 00:19:57.140
  • DIDN'T THINK THAT WAS FAIR THAT JULY WOULD HAVE MORE DAYS AND SO
  • 00:19:57.150 --> 00:20:00.230
  • HE TOOK SOME DAYS OFF FEBRUARY TO MAKE SURE AUGUST WAS THE SAME
  • 00:20:00.240 --> 00:20:04.220
  • LENGTH OF TIME. THAT'S CALLED TOO MUCH INFORMATION, ISN'T IT?
  • 00:20:04.230 --> 00:20:08.010
  • (LAUGHTER) OKAY, 'THAT ALL THE WORLD SHOULD BE REGISTERED'.
  • 00:20:08.020 --> 00:20:12.050
  • SO, WHY WOULD ROME BE COMPARED WITH THE TEN HORNS?
  • 00:20:12.060 --> 00:20:18.080
  • WHY IS IT THE FOURTH BEAST? WHO WAS RULING THE WORLD
  • 00:20:18.090 --> 00:20:21.190
  • WHEN JESUS IS BORN? -ROME.
  • 00:20:21.200 --> 00:20:23.290
  • -ROME. IT WAS ROMAN SOLDIERS THAT
  • 00:20:24.000 --> 00:20:26.240
  • CRUCIFIED HIM, A ROMAN SPEAR PIERCED HIS SIDE, THE ROMAN
  • 00:20:26.250 --> 00:20:30.070
  • NAILS PIERCED HIS HANDS, ROMAN GUARDS WERE AT THE TOMB.
  • 00:20:30.080 --> 00:20:33.250
  • ROME WAS THE PRINCIPLE POWER THAT WAS RESPONSIBLE AT THAT
  • 00:20:33.260 --> 00:20:36.130
  • TIME, AND ROME WAS VERY INVOLVED IN ESPECIALLY PERSECUTING THE
  • 00:20:36.140 --> 00:20:40.140
  • EARLY CHURCH, AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW FROM JUST YOUR ELEMENTARY
  • 00:20:40.150 --> 00:20:44.190
  • SCHOOL. YOU ALL HEARD ABOUT HOW THEY
  • 00:20:44.200 --> 00:20:46.260
  • USED TO BURN THE CHRISTIANS IN THE COLOSSEUM.
  • 00:20:46.270 --> 00:20:49.070
  • SO "THE TEN HORNS WHICH YOU SAW" - YOU READ IN REVELATION 17:12 -
  • 00:20:49.080 --> 00:20:54.190
  • "ARE TEN KINGS." WHAT HAPPENED WHEN ROME, RULED
  • 00:20:54.200 --> 00:20:58.050
  • BY THE CAESARS, THAT'S BETTER KNOWN AS PAGAN ROME, WHEN IT
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:21:02.100
  • BEGAN TO FALL BECAUSE THE BARBARIAN HORDES WERE ATTACKING
  • 00:21:02.110 --> 00:21:05.180
  • DIFFERENT PARTS OF THEIR REALM, THEY STARTED LOSING CONTROL.
  • 00:21:05.190 --> 00:21:08.220
  • THEY HAD PLUNGED INTO SO MUCH DECADENCE THEY BECAME
  • 00:21:08.230 --> 00:21:11.040
  • PREOCCUPIED WITH ENTERTAINMENT - I DON'T KNOW IF YOU KNOW THAT.
  • 00:21:11.050 --> 00:21:15.100
  • IT'S KIND OF HAPPENING TO US - BECAME SO PREOCCUPIED WITH
  • 00:21:15.110 --> 00:21:18.220
  • ENTERTAINMENT THAT THE BARBARIANS STARTED CONQUERING
  • 00:21:18.230 --> 00:21:23.020
  • THE EDGES OF THE KINGDOM AND PRETTY SOON ROME FELL.
  • 00:21:23.030 --> 00:21:26.260
  • IT WASN'T BUILT IN A DAY, BUT IT FELL PRETTY QUICK -
  • 00:21:26.270 --> 00:21:28.220
  • ABOUT 476 AD. WHAT WAS IN ITS PLACE WHEN IT FELL?
  • 00:21:28.230 --> 00:21:33.140
  • THE ROMAN EMPIRE - AND HERE'S A MAP THAT REPRESENTS THE VASTNESS
  • 00:21:33.150 --> 00:21:37.110
  • OF THAT EMPIRE AT ITS ZENITH - IT THEN DISINTEGRATED AND IT
  • 00:21:37.120 --> 00:21:42.110
  • LARGELY WAS IN THE NORTHWESTERN TERRITORY.
  • 00:21:42.120 --> 00:21:46.210
  • IT FELL INTO TEN DIVISIONS, THE TEN BRANCHES OF THE ROMAN
  • 00:21:46.220 --> 00:21:51.190
  • EMPIRE. AND THIS IS A MAP WITH SOME
  • 00:21:51.200 --> 00:21:54.000
  • OF THE ANCIENT NAMES OF THOSE DIVISIONS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE.
  • 00:21:54.010 --> 00:21:57.280
  • YOU MIGHT KNOW THEM BY SOME OF THE MODERN NAMES.
  • 00:21:57.290 --> 00:22:01.010
  • YOU HAVE THE ALEMANNI, ANY OF YOU SPEAK SPANISH?
  • 00:22:01.020 --> 00:22:04.210
  • HOW DO YOU SAY 'GERMAN'? -ALEMAN.
  • 00:22:04.220 --> 00:22:06.170
  • -ALEMAN, YEAH. SO YOU'VE GOT THE ALEMANNI WERE THE GERMAN,
  • 00:22:06.180 --> 00:22:09.240
  • THE FRANKS WERE THE FRENCH, THE ANGLO-SAXONS WERE THE ENGLISH,
  • 00:22:09.250 --> 00:22:14.150
  • THE SUEVI WAS PORTUGAL, THE LOMBARDS - ITALY, THE VISIGOTHS
  • 00:22:14.160 --> 00:22:18.160
  • - SPAIN - AND THEN YOU'LL NOTICE THREE THAT YOU DON'T HEAR FROM
  • 00:22:18.170 --> 00:22:21.140
  • MUCH ANYMORE. WE'VE GOT ALL THE OTHERS ARE STILL THERE.
  • 00:22:21.150 --> 00:22:24.090
  • YOU'VE GOT THE VANDALS, THE HERULI, AND THE OSTRAGOTHS.
  • 00:22:24.100 --> 00:22:28.150
  • NOW THE VANDALS WERE IN NORTH AFRICA.
  • 00:22:28.160 --> 00:22:31.030
  • YOU EVER HEARD OF VANDALISM? THERE WERE A LOT OF CHRISTIANS
  • 00:22:31.040 --> 00:22:34.240
  • THAT SPREAD THROUGH THE ROMAN EMPIRE, BECAUSE EVEN BEFORE PAUL
  • 00:22:34.250 --> 00:22:37.230
  • WAS DEAD, HE SAID THE GOSPEL'S GONE TO EVERY CREATURE.
  • 00:22:37.240 --> 00:22:39.240
  • HE MEANT THROUGHOUT THE ROMAN EMPIRE.
  • 00:22:39.250 --> 00:22:41.140
  • THERE WERE CHRISTIANS ALL THROUGH NORTH AFRICA.
  • 00:22:41.150 --> 00:22:43.230
  • AND WHEN THE CHRISTIANS IN ROME BEGAN TO GET INVOLVED IN
  • 00:22:43.240 --> 00:22:47.100
  • IDOLATRY, THE CHRISTIANS IN NORTH AFRICA SAID, 'THAT'S
  • 00:22:47.110 --> 00:22:51.240
  • AGAINST THE LAW.' AND THEY WOULD DEFACE THE ROMAN GODS.
  • 00:22:51.250 --> 00:22:55.260
  • THEY CALLED IT 'VANDALISM'. SO WHENEVER ANYBODY IN ROME
  • 00:22:55.270 --> 00:22:59.110
  • BROKE THE ARMS OFF - YOU EVER SEE ROMAN STATUES AND THEY'RE
  • 00:22:59.120 --> 00:23:01.250
  • MISSING AN ARM AND THE NOSE IS GONE - A LOT OF THAT WAS DONE
  • 00:23:01.260 --> 00:23:04.030
  • BY VANDALS THAT SAID, 'THIS IS IDOLATRY.
  • 00:23:04.040 --> 00:23:07.010
  • YOU'RE WORSHIPING THESE ROMAN GODS.' BUT THOSE KINGDOMS WERE
  • 00:23:07.020 --> 00:23:10.230
  • LATER ATTACKED. ALRIGHT, SO BEFORE I LEAVE
  • 00:23:10.240 --> 00:23:13.250
  • DANIEL I WANT YOU TO NOTICE SOMETHING.
  • 00:23:13.260 --> 00:23:15.290
  • FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE BIBLE SCHOLARS, YOU'LL NOTICE THAT
  • 00:23:16.000 --> 00:23:18.270
  • THERE ARE SOME SIMILARITIES BETWEEN DANIEL 2, WHERE THERE'S
  • 00:23:18.280 --> 00:23:23.060
  • THIS IMAGE OUTLINING THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:23:23.070 --> 00:23:26.000
  • THAT PROPHECY IS GIVEN IN A GREAT IDOL THAT IS THE DES -
  • 00:23:26.010 --> 00:23:30.020
  • IT'S THEN DESTROYED. IT'S A GREAT IDOL WITH A HEAD OF
  • 00:23:30.030 --> 00:23:32.130
  • GOLD AND ARMS OF SILVER AND A BELLY OF BRONZE AND LEGS OF
  • 00:23:32.140 --> 00:23:35.180
  • IRON AND FEET OF IRON AND CLAY. IN THE FOURTH BEAST, WHAT
  • 00:23:35.190 --> 00:23:40.000
  • KIND OF TEETH DID IT HAVE? -IRON.
  • 00:23:40.010 --> 00:23:41.290
  • -IRON TEETH. AND IN THE TOES YOU'VE GOT IRON
  • 00:23:42.000 --> 00:23:47.050
  • AND CLAY AND THERE'S TEN TOES. AND SO, YOU'LL SEE THAT
  • 00:23:47.060 --> 00:23:49.190
  • THERE'S SIMILARITIES. RIGHT AWAY YOU'LL NOTICE,
  • 00:23:49.200 --> 00:23:52.050
  • BETWEEN DANIEL 2, DANIEL 7, REVELATION 13, REVELATION 12 -
  • 00:23:52.060 --> 00:23:59.020
  • YOU'RE GOING TO SEE THAT ALL OF THESE THINGS ARE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:23:59.030 --> 00:24:01.240
  • THE SAME WORLD POWERS THAT WOULD IMPACT GOD'S KINGDOM
  • 00:24:01.250 --> 00:24:05.110
  • IN THE LAST DAYS. AND SO, IF YOU LOOK NOW IN -
  • 00:24:05.120 --> 00:24:11.240
  • QUESTION #9: IN THE DANIEL 7 PROPHECY, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
  • 00:24:11.250 --> 00:24:19.140
  • IT SAYS, "I CONSIDERED" - AND I STARTED READING THIS TO YOU - "I
  • 00:24:19.150 --> 00:24:22.200
  • CONSIDERED THE HORNS, AND, BEHOLD, THERE CAME UP AMONG THEM
  • 00:24:22.210 --> 00:24:25.240
  • ANOTHER LITTLE HORN. BEFORE WHOM THERE WERE THREE OF
  • 00:24:25.250 --> 00:24:30.130
  • THE FIRST HORNS PLUCKED UP BY THE ROOTS:" - SO YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:24:30.140 --> 00:24:33.040
  • THESE TEN DIVISIONS OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE AND IT INCLUDED THE
  • 00:24:33.050 --> 00:24:36.170
  • VANDALS, THE HERULI, AND THE OSTRAGOTHS.
  • 00:24:36.180 --> 00:24:39.100
  • BUT WHEN THIS LITTLE HORN POWER COMES UP THAT SPEAKS GREAT WORDS
  • 00:24:39.110 --> 00:24:42.290
  • AGAINST THE MOST HIGH AND WEARS OUT THE SAINTS OF THE MOST HIGH
  • 00:24:43.000 --> 00:24:46.010
  • AND THINKS TO CHANGE TIMES AND LAWS, THAT POWER, WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:24:46.020 --> 00:24:50.130
  • UP, IT UPROOTS THREE. MAKE A NOTE OF THAT. I'M GOING TO SHOW
  • 00:24:50.140 --> 00:24:54.210
  • YOU, HISTORICALLY, HOW THAT WAS FULFILLED.
  • 00:24:54.220 --> 00:24:57.000
  • "AND, BEHOLD, IN THIS HORN WERE EYES LIKE THE EYES OF A MAN," -
  • 00:24:57.010 --> 00:24:59.280
  • SOMETHING DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS POWER - "AND A MOUTH SPEAKING" -
  • 00:24:59.290 --> 00:25:02.240
  • POMPOUS WORDS OR - "GREAT THINGS."
  • 00:25:02.250 --> 00:25:06.130
  • SO HOW IS THE BEAST IN REVELATION 13, NOW, SIMILAR TO
  • 00:25:06.140 --> 00:25:09.260
  • THE VISION IN DANIEL CHAPTER 7? IT SAYS, "NOW THE BEAST WHICH I
  • 00:25:09.270 --> 00:25:13.290
  • SAW WAS LIKE A LEOPARD, HIS FEET WERE LIKE THE FEET OF A BEAR.
  • 00:25:14.000 --> 00:25:17.100
  • AND HIS MOUTH LIKE THE MOUTH OF A LION."
  • 00:25:17.110 --> 00:25:20.060
  • NOW, DID YOU SEE, IN DANIEL 7, A LION, A BEAR, AND A LEOPARD?
  • 00:25:20.070 --> 00:25:26.180
  • THAT MEANS THIS BEAST IS ALL BUILT ON THE HISTORY OF THOSE
  • 00:25:26.190 --> 00:25:30.110
  • FOUR MAIN KINGDOMS. THERE'S A CONNECTION HERE.
  • 00:25:30.120 --> 00:25:32.230
  • YOU MIGHT NOTICE THAT, IN DANIEL, IT SAYS, 'LION, BEAR,
  • 00:25:32.240 --> 00:25:39.130
  • LEOPARD.' IN REVELATION IS SAYS, LEOPARD, BEAR, LION.
  • 00:25:39.140 --> 00:25:45.070
  • IT'S OPPOSITE. WHY? VERY SIMPLE, BECAUSE DANIEL IS
  • 00:25:45.080 --> 00:25:48.140
  • LOOKING FORWARD IN HIS PROPHECY. JOHN IS NOW LOOKING BACK.
  • 00:25:48.150 --> 00:25:52.170
  • SO YOU'VE GOT THE EXACT SAME SEQUENCE, TOO, FROM THEIR
  • 00:25:52.180 --> 00:25:54.180
  • PERSPECTIVE. AND SO, IT'S TALKING ABOUT THESE
  • 00:25:54.190 --> 00:25:58.120
  • POWERS THAT HAD OCCUPIED GOD'S PEOPLE AND PERSECUTED GOD'S
  • 00:25:58.130 --> 00:26:02.050
  • PEOPLE IN THE JEWISH HISTORY. AND THEN THERE'S A NEW POWER
  • 00:26:02.060 --> 00:26:05.180
  • THAT WAS HAPPENING IN REVELATION RIGHT DURING THE TIME
  • 00:26:05.190 --> 00:26:08.200
  • WHEN JOHN WROTE IT. ROME WAS IN POWER.
  • 00:26:08.210 --> 00:26:11.140
  • JOHN WAS A PRISONER ON THE ISLE OF PATMOS, BY THE KINGDOM OF
  • 00:26:11.150 --> 00:26:15.140
  • ROME, FOR HIS FAITH. AND IT SAYS - IN THIS BEAST, IT
  • 00:26:15.150 --> 00:26:20.200
  • SAYS, "HIS MOUTH LIKE THE MOUTH OF A LION. THE DRAGON GAVE HIM
  • 00:26:20.210 --> 00:26:24.090
  • HIS POWER, HIS THRONE, AND GREAT AUTHORITY."
  • 00:26:24.100 --> 00:26:28.160
  • NOW, WE ALL KNOW THAT THE DRAGON, OF COURSE, BEHIND THE
  • 00:26:28.170 --> 00:26:31.170
  • DRAGON YOU'VE GOT THE DEVIL - CALLS HIM THE OLD SERPENT, THE
  • 00:26:31.180 --> 00:26:34.030
  • DRAGON - BUT THE DRAGON WAS OPERATING THROUGH THE POWER OF
  • 00:26:34.040 --> 00:26:37.090
  • ROME. WHEN IT SAYS THE DRAGON TRIED TO
  • 00:26:37.100 --> 00:26:40.050
  • DEVOUR THE MAN CHILD AS SOON AS IT WAS BORN.
  • 00:26:40.060 --> 00:26:43.140
  • WELL, THE ROMAN POWER - THE DEVIL USED THE ROMAN POWER TO
  • 00:26:43.150 --> 00:26:46.080
  • DESTROY JESUS - OR TRY TO DESTROY HIM - WHEN HE WAS A
  • 00:26:46.090 --> 00:26:48.240
  • BABY. SO, THE DEVIL WAS WORKING
  • 00:26:48.250 --> 00:26:51.140
  • THROUGH ROME WHEN CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED.
  • 00:26:51.150 --> 00:26:54.090
  • THE DEVIL WAS USING THAT KINGDOM TO PERSECUTE CHRISTIANITY,
  • 00:26:54.100 --> 00:26:57.190
  • BUT IT WAS THE KINGDOM OF PAGAN ROME.
  • 00:26:57.200 --> 00:27:01.090
  • BUT PAGAN ROME THEN GOES THROUGH A CHANGE WHEN IT FALLS.
