Highlights from "The Second Beast"
that may pertain to our presidential election 2008.
Voting, Mortgages, The Raising Of Taxes, and
Spreading The Wealth Around.
Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and
great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their
right hand, or in their foreheads:
What's in your forehead? Your brain. When
this time rolls around, you'd better use it.
Rev 13:17 And that no man might buy or sell, save
he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his

understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the

When this time comes
around, who will you be voting for?
.... Currently, in 2008, in fun people
are saying one of our presidential candidates is the
Messiah, he'll part the waters, and save the earth. Some
say he's the antichrist. He's neither, but, God does
send us types. ......Wake up
Dan 2:41 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.
Dan 2:42 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.

miry clay, they shall

"Wake up Christians"
The raising of taxes:
Something else we're hearing a lot of
now, (September 2008), is taxes. The raising of taxes.
presidential election year, one of the candidates, if elected,
is going to be a raiser of taxes.
His theme is hope.
He even wrote a book about it, (Audacity
of Hope). Think maybe the Bible has
anything to say about this? Read carefully the next two verses,
Daniel 11:20 and Daniel 11:21. Most Bible scholars claim the
vial person in
Daniel 11:21 to be the antichrist. Just prior to that
vile person, comes the
raiser of taxes.
Carefully examine these verses along with Strong's
definitions of some of the words.
Dan 11:20 Then shall stand up in his estate a
raiser of taxes
in the glory of the kingdom: but within few days he
shall be destroyed,
neither in anger, nor in battle.
1 "DESTROYED": 7665. shabar,

shaw-bar'; a prim. root; to scrutinize; by
impl. (of watching) to expect (with
hope and patience):--hope,
tarry, view, wait.
Check other scriptures in the Bible for
the words destroy and destroyed. You'll find that here it
doesn't have the same meaning and certainly not our modern
Spreading the wealth around:

shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by

devices against the strong holds, even for a time.

that's happening currently is
perplexity. Webster's dictionary
describes the word perplex as, "to make a person
uncertain, doubtful, etc. Confuse." Jesus Christ
Himself, when describing events of the end time, had
something to say about perplexity.
And there shall be signs in the sun, and
in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress
of nations, with
the sea and the waves roaring;

At a loss mentally?
Standing in doubt?

"Wake up Christians"
November 4th. 2008.
After viewing the election
results and lying in bed thinking, a portion of the Bible
came to my mind. The little short book of Habakkuk. I
thought it appropriate for me to add a few verses to this
study. I recommend you read the entire book. It only has
three chapters and contains end time prophecy.
Hab 1:5 Behold ye among the heathen, and regard,
and wonder marvellously: for I will work a work in your
days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you.
8539. tamahh, taw-mah'; a prim. root; to be in
consternation:--be amazed, be astonished, marvel (-lously),
wonder. ....... Webster's definition of consternation is,
"terrify, great fear, or shock".
Hab 2:2 And the LORD answered me, and said,
Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run
that readeth it.
Hab 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed
time, but at the end it shall speak,
and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it;
because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
Paul referred to the above verses.
Acts 13:41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and
perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in
no wise believe, though a man declare
it unto you.
I'm not saying that
the results of our presidential election is the
fulfillment of the prophecy spoken of in Habakkuk.
Actually I've always kinda thought it was pertaining to
Second Thessalonians chapter 2, verses 1 thru 12, where
I believe it states that the anti-Christ, (Satan
himself), will be here just prior to the second coming
of Jesus Christ, which most Christians don't seem to
believe, even when they're told. It's sure
easy for people to be fooled. But, as I've stated
earlier, God does send us types. ......Wake up
America!!! Again, Maybe I should say,
"Wake up Christians"
If you've found this
interesting, be sure to read the complete Bible study.
