The beast from the sea (Revelation 13:1) is the one that Daniel described as the “little horn.” We know this because in Revelation 13:4-7, John’s description matched Daniel’s perfectly (Daniel 7:8, 21). This little horn was to make great boasts and would wage war on the saints until the time came for the saints to possess the Kingdom.
John, however, added that this beast would receive a fatal wound that would be healed. Daniel knew nothing of this. Neither was it revealed to Daniel that a second beast would arise that would give its financial power to the first beast (Revelation 13:12). It seems that the second beast came specifically to assist the first beast in its time of weakness.
So we see the rise of Rothschild banking in 1798 at the same time that Pope Pius VI was taken captive and imprisoned. The formal alliance between the Rothschild banks and the Roman Church appears to have been established at the Congress of Vienna in 1814-1815, where the European leaders met to “redraw the map of Europe” after Napoleon’s defeat.
The Catholic Encyclopedia, Vol. X, tells us about the Rothschilds,
“It is a somewhat curious sequel to the attempt to set up a Catholic competitor to the Rothschilds that at the present time the latter are the guardians of the papal treasure.”
We know that both the Rothschilds and the Roman Church had representatives attending the Congress of Vienna. A guardian, in a legal sense, is defined in The American Heritage Dictionary as:
“A person who is legally responsible for the care and management of the person or property of one who is considered by law to be incompetent to manage his own affairs.”
In other words, the Rothschilds became the financial managers of Vatican’s wealth, holding the key to Rome’s money. When this arrangement began is not stated, but the article above implies that a Catholic bank, Union Générale, had been set up in 1876 as to compete with the Jewish Rothschild banks, hoping the Vatican would entrust them with their money. However, the bank was disappointed (at the time), for this did not happen.
Why did the Roman church continue to utilize a Jewish bank rather than a Catholic bank? One has to wonder about this curious arrangement. Were the Rothschilds using their guardianship as leverage to keep control of the church? It is probably the case that the Rothschild banks had been made “guardians” in 1814-1815 on a 99-year legal contract. The owners of the Catholic bank, Union Générale, apparently were unaware of this when they tried to induce the Vatican to deposit its “treasure” with their new bank.
This guardianship no doubt ended formally in 1913-1914 when the Federal Reserve Bank was established in the USA. Ten powerful banks were the Class A stockholders in this private bank, though many thought it was owned by the US government. The Fed’s own web page, however, tells us that it is a privately-owned bank.
According to both Thomas D. Schauf and Eustace Mullins, it is owned by ten international banks:
1. N.M. Rothschild of London
2. Rothschild Bank of Berlin
3. Warburg Bank of Hamburg
4. Warburg Bank of Amsterdam
5. Lehman Brothers of New York (bankrupted in 2008, most assets sold to Barclays Bank)
6. Lazard Brothers of Paris
7. Kuhn Loeb Bank of New York
8. Israel Moses Seif Bank of Ital
9. Goldman Sachs of New York
10. JP Morgan Chase Bank of New York
The coincidence of timing suggests that the Vatican was behind the creation of the Federal Reserve Bank. Perhaps they needed it until setting up the Vatican Bank, which was done from 1933-1942.
The Rise of Corporations
Corporations (as legal entities) were an invention of the Roman Church in the 14th century. As such, all corporations, in the end, are under the authority of Rome. US corporations are registered in various states, all of which are now corporations under the US corporation, which in turn is registered in the City of London, which in turn is a corporate subsidiary of Rome.
In 1933, President Roosevelt presided over the bankruptcy of America, which allowed the banks to foreclose on the entire country. They immediately set about to transform America from a Christian Republic to a Socialist Democracy.
They had already prepared for this takeover by establishing birth certificates in 1921, by which they would register all births with the Department of Transportation. Babies were registered as little corporations with their names written in all capital letters to distinguish them from actual living beings, whose names were written in upper and lower case.
By this subterfuge, they enslaved everyone by making them citizens of the US corporation. By duplicating this in the rest of the world as well, the Roman Church was able to lay claim to the people of the whole world. In doing so, the prophecy was fulfilled that the little horn would overpower and overcome even the saints of the Most High.
War on the Saints
Daniel describes the little horn in Daniel 7:21, 22,
21 I kept looking, and that horn was waging war with the saints and overpowering them, 22 until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was passed in favor of the saints of the Highest One, and the time arrived when the saints took possession of the Kingdom.
Revelation 13:7 echoes this, saying,
7 It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.
During the Middle Ages, the Roman Church made war against anyone who would dispute its authority. The most well-known case in point is in the Inquisitions, which were based on the papal bull of Pope Lucius III in 1184, entitled, Ad Abolendam. Up to that time the usual punishment for “heresy” was the death penalty. (This has been called the Episcopal Inquisition to contrast it with the Papal Inquisition that began in 1229.)
The Inquisitions made torture a pious act, supposedly to force heretics to recant “for their own good,” submit to Rome’s official creed, and thereby “save” their souls. In 1229 such torture was again authorized by the pope, and confirmed on May 15, 1252 by Pope Innocent IV in his papal bull, Ad Extirpanda.
After the Church’s fatal wound, and during the time the Rothschilds were “guardians of the papal treasure,” the war against the saints took a different turn. We may, of course, relate this to the great wars of the 20th century, all of which played their part, but at the time of the end, the great war has become a culture war.
This is a war between the culture of Mystery Babylon and the culture of God’s Kingdom. It really began in the early 1960’s when God was removed from schools and government. Marriage itself began to come under attack, and sexual relations outside of marriage was condoned.
The next phase was when abortion was legalized in 1973. Then in the 1990’s, President Bill Clinton normalized immorality as a whole. Finally, gay marriage was legalized, and it quickly became illegal to object or to criticize it. This is where we now stand in the war against the saints.
The Mark of the Beast
Revelation 13:16 speaks primarily of the financial beast rising from the earth who assists and empowers the little horn of religious Rome.
16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads.
The purpose of this is to have the power to regulate all financial transactions, including the sale of goods and services. Everyone is given a Social Security number to identify them as slaves in the Babylonian system. This is not a feature that is yet to come. It is here now.
The mark of the beast stands in contrast to the mark of God that is described in Deuteronomy 6:5-8,
5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand and they shall be as frontals on your forehead.
The Jews in Jesus’ day often followed this command literally by putting written Scriptures into small boxes and tying them to their hand and forehead. We need not follow this practice, but we certainly are required to remember the law in all that we think with our minds or do with our hands. In all things we are to follow the greatest commandment (verse 5).
If we do this, we will stand in direct contrast to those who allow the culture of Mystery Babylon to be written on their hearts, foreheads, and hands. Today there is a move to put bar codes or computer chips on people’s foreheads and hands, even as Jews used to take this law of God literally. In my view, the command of God is not about physical things, because God judges our hearts. A computer chip will not determine our relationship with God, though it may be a sign of adopting Babylonian culture and practice.
Revelation 13:18 speaks of the number 666, which supposedly identifies the Antichrist. There is no mention of Antichrist in Revelation 13, so this is an assumption. This number was given so that we would connect it with the financial system of the beast from the earth. The Old Testament pattern is found in 2 Chronicles 9:13,
13 Now the weight of gold which came to Solomon in one year was 666 talents of gold.
This number came to represent Kingdom finance in the days of Solomon’s Kingdom. It was a positive feature, based on God’s money, gold (and silver). Revelation 13 gives us a fleshly counterpart to this, especially when, in the course of turning America into a Babylonian system, President Nixon took us off the gold standard on August 15, 1971.
From then on, the US dollar was just a piece of paper with marks on it and with the image of some famous man imprinted on it. Recall what Jesus said in Luke 20:24, 25 about paying taxes,
24 “Show Me a denarius [coin]. Whose likeness and inscription does it have?” They said, “Caesar’s.” 25 And He said to them, “Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”
Every coin has an image, and every paper currency has its own image and number. Germany’s currency was even called a mark. All of this has to do with the financial system of Mystery Babylon, which is the final “beast” in the succession of empires. The real question is whether we worship the beast and his image, for Paul tells us that “the love of money is the root of all evil” (1 Timothy 6:10 KJV). If the accumulation of money is our primary goal in life, that is, our god, we should reexamine our hearts to see if the mark of the beast is written on our hands, our forehead, and our heart.
The Babylonian banking system is currently collapsing. We are nearing the end of tribulation. The final beast has already run its course. While many in the Church think that the beast and his government is yet to come, those who understand history and prophecy see that it is finally coming to an end. The Tribulation began when Nebuchadnezzar took Jerusalem. When the first beast was overthrown, three other beasts came on the scene, each in succession.
The little horn and the beast from the earth were the last beasts to hold the Dominion Mandate. Now they too are being overthrown.
