End-time Reason #2 that we won’t die of old age
Some early Americans believed that the lamb-like beast in Revelation 13:11 represented America. It seems to fit–a lamb is a symbol of Christ. It’s gentle, peace-loving as America was for most of two centuries. The bringing of fire from heaven could also be seen at Hiroshima, Nagasaki.
Speaking like a dragon (v 11) could include the Executive Orders now in place that would allow U.S. citizens to be detained indefinitely if suspected of terrorism. Homeland Security documents include homeschoolers, anti-abortionists, gun-rights activists, some returning veterans, and Bible prophecy believers as potential domestic terrorists!
The two horns in Revelation 13:11 were considered by Adventist pioneers to represent the two great powers: government and ecclesiastical. Having no crowns on the horns as the previous beast (papacy represented by an amalgamation of the beasts or kingdoms that it survived and assimilated from Daniel 7)–having no crowns mean a nation without a king and a church without a pope–Protestant America.
America has been blessed by God for the principles of the Constitution which fit well with the 10 Commandments as instruments for self-government. James Madison 4th President of the United States and hailed as the “Father of the Constitution,” said, “We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government.”
But since that time, the Jesuits have been steadily at work to undermine that foundation of a government without a king and a church without a pope. When they influenced President Truman to appoint an ambassador to the Vatican, the public outcry was so great, that it could not happen. But when Reagan did, no outcry–not even by the Religious Liberty Department of the General Conference of SDAs.
As a consequence, America in general and Washington DC particularly, is up to its ears in Catholic influence with now a majority on the Supreme Court, a CIA that is run by Catholic appointees, and the president who is surrounded Catholic advisors as this picture shows…http://jamesjpn.net/2012/11/15/obama-surrounded-by-roman-catholic-jesuit-trained-intelligence-leaders/
I suspect Adventism would make a bigger Protestant impact in calling attention to what is happening if we weren’t also infiltrated and surrounded by Jesuit influence at the highest levels of leadership. B.G. Wilkinson, President of Washington Missionary College, discovered one of his Bible teachers was a Jesuit taking orders from downtown DC and fired him. Since then, I don’t think any have been discerned, but one only has to advocate things that ought to be done to encounter strange resistance.
