The Deadly Wound 1
Bible Study-Deadly Wound 1
Part One of Two
The events of the end times are not that difficult to understand but if you’re like me, I get a better understanding of a subject if it can be approached from several different sides or aspects. Just telling me something once doesn’t usually cut it with my brain. I need a little background so I can fit the new info somewhere and then build from there.
And that’s good because that’s the way that our Father works, this is how He teaches us. He doesn’t just give us some information in one place and let it go at that. Nope, He tucks it in, in various places, that’s why it’s important to read ALL of His letter to us, not just the parts that interest us.
For instance, writing this paper on the Deadly Wound took me to the books of Revelation,, Romans,, 1st and 2nd Thessalonians,, Deuteronomy,, 1st Samuel,, Nahum,, Matthew, and Micah.
And the more that you read, the more fun it becomes because every once in a while you’ll read something and BAM…a half dozen little pieces of information that were floating around in your head suddenly fall into place and that one verse that just never made sense before, now makes perfect sense.
I’ve written a good bit on the end-time events, backing up everything I say with the Words and Knowledge of our Father, our Lord and the Holy Spirit and today I’m going to focus on the deadly wound that we read about in Revelation chapter 13, verses 3, 12 and 14.
There’s not a lot written specifically written about this wound but having a good understanding of other happenings in the Bible, we can glean a lot of good information about it. And it’s good to understand this part of prophesy because many of you might still be walking around when this occurs.
This wound is going to happen early on after Satan appears in Jerusalem, impersonating our Lord as the Antichrist, and it’s going to solidify, in many people’s mind, that Satan is truly our Lord and that’s only going to fulfill the prophesy that St. Paul gave us in 2nd Thessalonians 2:3, concerning the Apostasy, which is one of two events that MUST happen before the return of our Lord.
This wound is not caused by a gun blast or a knife or an RPG, nor does it bleed real blood. It’s a debilitating blow to a system that has already been put into place, you see it in action every day and it’s not socialism, as you may understand it, because only one country can have that as the basis of their government and it won’t affect others. No, this is one-worldism. A collective gathering and meeting of the minds of many governments, all coming together for one common cause.... world control by a select few.
If you will remember, there are two beasts in Revelation chapter 13. One is a political system, made up of the leaders of the nations around the world, while the other is the religious system, put together by Satan, with him at the head of it because he will look just like the true Christ, and all the people of the world forming his congregation.
Mindless robots following Satan just like they did their local preachers, programmed over the centuries for an event such as this. Never asking why; never questioning the truthfulness of the message every Sunday morning. Going to church was a job that had to be done, just like Obama searching for a church to attend shortly after his first election. It was part of the job to show the country that he had faith in something. In six and a half years as president he attended St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington 18 times. Just part of the job.
And he wasn't even being honest when he chose that church. Muslims don't attend a church.
But, the people, with eyes closed, head cast downward, shoulders slumped forward, they thoughtlessly plod down the chute, looking neither right nor left, toward the religious executioner known as the Antichrist, who stands there proudly and arrogantly with a fistful of souls in his grasp. The price that they had to pay for admission through the gate was mindless submission, thoughtless participation and a total disregard for anything beyond what the world could offer.
In a sense there will be two wounding’s: one to the first beast, the political system and the second to the Antichrist.
So, let’s find out what the wound is, how it affects us and how will it be healed.
Revelation 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea,
Sea is water and water, in the book of Revelation, is symbolic of people. So it should read: I stood and I looked at the people of the world…
and saw a beast rise up out of the sea,
I saw a political system rise up out of those people…
having seven heads and ten horns,
We know that these are the 7 dominions of the world and these are 10 men or women, leaders. These dominions can also be called continents: North and South America, Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia and Antarctic.
and upon his horns ten crowns,
Crowns meaning that these 10 men will rule under this one-world system. They are the leaders.
and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Blasphemy is what? That identifies it…it is to blaspheme the truth of God, His Son, Jesus Christ.
It is a one-world system that will stand against that which you know to be true Christianity, followers of Christ and His teachings. It will be world-wide.
Now, this particular beast that rose from the water, the people, is not an entity, it is not an individual. It has many heads but that doesn’t mean that it is some kind of monster; our Father doesn’t deal in comic books or fictitious characters, He deals in reality.
It is symbolism so that you can understand better. Our Father had to make sure that each future generation, after the time that these holy books were written, could understand what He was trying to tell us and to recognize the conditions of the world as we moved closer and closer to the end times.
He’s saying it is a political system made up from the 7 continents, or 7 dominions, of this world to blaspheme or lead people away from the true Word of God.
Revelation 13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard,
In the book of Daniel this is a panther…
and his feet were as the feet of a bear,
It used the bear to put into effect, the beginning of the wounding. We know which nation it is that is called the bear and it is Russia. Apparently, Russia will play a large part in these events.
Update: 24 February 2017....Russia has been in the news quite a bit lately, being accused of trying to interfere in the national election of our president; President Trump referring to him as a friend; the Congress doing an all-out investigation into the truth of this interference.
Don't forget who Russia and America are....we are Jacob and they are Esau. Father saying: Jacob He loved, Esau He hated:
Romans 9:13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated. KJV
After the fall of Communism in 1989, two years after President Reagan asked the Soviet General Secretary Gorbachev to tear down this wall, the wall in East Berlin, and it did, in fact, come down. The control of Communism had been broken, and in 1991 Russia changed its name from the U.S.S.R. back to Russia, Gorbachev resigned and all of the former satellite countries controlled by the U.S.S.R. were released to follow their own choices and decisions.
I know that this is off-subject but have you ever wondered why the color red was ever associated with Russia or China? Professors will tell you that the red flag is the oldest symbol of socialism (communism) and the color red represents the blood of the workers that died during the revolution of the 18th century.
If we go to the Scriptures we’ll find out that our Father chose that color long before the 18th century. By about 3,600 years.
Esau, the twin brother of Jacob, came in from the wilds one day and he was so hungry that he probably could have eaten the south-end of a north-bound skunk and ‘ole Jacob, craftily, offered him a bowl of stew that he was cooking in return for Esau forfeiting his birthright and handing it over to Jacob. A superficial explanation of the hand of our Father at work.
Even though Esau was the rightful heir by birth, our Father wanted that birthright handed over to Jacob because He knew what kind of souls He had placed in each man at the time of their conception.
Anyway, the spices that Jacob had put in that stew, some say it was a lintel bean soup, made it RED in color.
Genesis 25:29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:
Genesis 25: 30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom. KJV
When Esau was born his skin was RED and covered with hair as a goat. Our Father named him Esau because, in the Hebrew, Esau means RED. Then our Father decided to change his name to Edom because he ate the RED stew, which Edom also, in the Hebrew, means RED.
When Jacob and Esau were born, our Father said that they would each become a great nation and that the elder would serve the younger. Jacob and his descendants crossed the Caucasus Mountains and migrated through Europe and into the British Isles, Canada and the United States.
The children of Edom became great in number, the Edomites, and they eventually migrated and settled in the area of southern Russia.
Thus we have: Jacob = America; Esau/Edom = Russia. Although Jacob (America) is the younger brother he is quite a bit more powerful than Edom (Russia).
RED has been the color of choice for Russia and China for many centuries but during the 1950’s and 60’s it came to be representative of communism. The RED army of Russia; The RED Chinese. The base color of Russia’s flag is RED.
Gorbachev has a birthmark on his forehead that is RED and purple and, some say, loosely resembles the outline of the United States. (I never really saw that myself).
CLEARLY, even in the Old Testament, RED is associated with Russia, which is a derivative of rush or rosh.
After the fall of Communism Russia fell into a dormant state, at least, publicly, but never underestimate a sleeping bear. Recently they have invaded the Ukrainian territory of Crimea and annexed it. They denied initial involvement by their army, which they later admitted to it, simply because we had satellite photos showing that they did.
Still, the entire world knows that President Putin is a bald-faced liar, with the ego and arrogance that served him well while rising through the ranks to Lieutenant Colonel in the KGB.
On another parallel, Russia is now showing her might again as we near these end of times. Lots of things have to fall into place yet but it’s a’comin.
ISIS is rampaging across the Middle East with the dual purpose of conquering land territory and slaughtering Christians.
Bringing peace between the Jews and the Arabs by splitting the city of Jerusalem in half, the Two-State Solution, is a joke that most of the world is aware of and the cries of peace, peace, peace in the Middle East will fall on deaf ears because our Father prophesied that it would:
Update 24 February 2017....On 15 February, the leader of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, (Bibi, to his friends), pretty much stated that he was not going to agree with a two-state solution nor was he going to stop building settlements in the West Bank.
1st Thessalonians 5:3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. KJV
They cry for peace today; they come up with “Two-State Solutions” that will never come to fruition, and peace will elude them UNTIL Satan, as the false messiah, appears in Jerusalem. The birth of Satan’s time, that five month period, is at hand and Satan will play them for all they’re worth. And I might add, with our Father’s blessings through it all.
Remember when He got real upset with people in 2nd Thessalonians and said that if they wanted to believe a lie then He’ll go ahead and let them believe it and NOT allow them to see the truth UNTIL the Millennium? It’s for their protection; He loves us that much:
2nd Thessalonians 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
2nd Thessalonians 2:11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
2nd Thessalonians 2:12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. KJV
They would rather believe the lies of Satan during this time and party on, brother. What kind of rewards are these people going to get in the Eternity? Probably not much because now is the time to start building those rewards and they’re out there living it up with the Antichrist.
These prophesies are not written to someone that lives on another planet; or to someone in another time on this planet; they are written to you and me because the time is leading up to the Antichrist and it’s running short.
These prophesies are happening one right after another TODAY. Like the gears on a clock, one click at a time will eventually bring the chimes to sound the final hour. The hour of temptation.
The future is right now; time has caught up with itself and prophesy; there’s nothing more for our Father or our Lord to write or tell us. It’s already in front of us…..it’s called the Bible. It’s called reality.
And if you are reading this there is great hope for you because you are beginning to see what others cannot and you are beginning to hear what others do not.
1st Thessalonians 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. KJV
You are coming out of spiritual darkness faster than you can handle it, so take a deep breath, slow down and ask our Father for His help, His grace and His knowledge and understanding. It may come slowly but it will come and there is still time.
Back to Revelation:
and his mouth as the mouth of a lion:
In Revelation, chapter 5, the lion of Judah was the only one justified to open the seals, Jesus Christ of course.
Revelation 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. KJV
This lion will be the mouth of the Christian people that brings this into reality, those that follow Jesus Christ. It uses the mobility of Russia, yes, but if it were not for the Christians, the Kenites could not have a nation today. It is the Christians that sponsor it, promote it.
and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
The dragon is the role that Satan plays as the Antichrist. The presence of this Antichrist will be so strong that he will allow this one-world system to take effect. Satan is the one that gives the power to this system. Our Father is the One that gives that power to Satan.
How do we know that the dragon is Satan?
Revelation 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, KJV
Continuing with chapter 13...
Revelation 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
Did it say part of the world? NO, ALL THE WORLD WONDERS AFTER THE BEAST. What was the beast again? The one-world political system.
The dragon, the Antichrist, heals simply by appearing and looking like the true Jesus Christ and the whole world will partake of the Apostasy and believe that this Antichrist is the true Christ.
The Antichrist will relieve all conflict and controversy among world leaders who will, no doubt, come together in a gathering similar to the G8 meetings.
The current members of the G8 are France, West Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Russia. In March of 2014, they kicked Russia out of the group because of their annexation of Crimea. These are the kind of situations that Satan, as the Antichrist, will resolve and bring all leaders together under one common, peaceful umbrella.
But we must be more specific in that we are in that hour and we must understand what this wound is to the political system. And we must look further ahead to the wounding of the Antichrist.
We are talking in a political and spiritual vein, not actual blood running down the streets. It is deception, Babylon, which is upon the people. And what does Babylon mean? It comes from the root word babel which means confusion.
Babylon_OT:894 Babel (baw-bel'); from OT:1101; confusion; Babel (i.e. Babylon), including Babylonia and the Babylonian empire:
The people are confused by what’s going on and the Antichrist is going to take control, settle them down and make things peaceful again. He’s going to make all his lies believable. After all, He looks like Jesus Christ, doesn’t he? Yes, he does. Why would you not believe the words of Christ as He speaks them to you? In front of you?
Those who have believed in the rapture theory will be confused because their preacher didn’t tell them that it was going to happen this way. They firmly believed that they would meet the Lord Up there, in the sky among the clouds, not DOWN here on the nitty-gritty earth.
And, really, what’s up with that? The Lord is coming down here from heaven, the saints are going to go up into the air and the clouds to meet Him and then turn around and come back down to the ground again? What’s the point of doing that?
So, in actuality, how do you wound a “lie”? You correct it with the words of the truth. And some of those words can be found in the Song of Moses.
Don’t ever forget that our Father is in complete control; nothing happens during this time without His consent, all things according to His plan.
Revelation 15 states that the overcomers will be singing the Song of Moses at that time. What are some of the words of that song? Who controls the wounding? Even though this song is in the OT it still applies to the first day of the Millennium. Let’s take a look.
Deuteronomy 32:39 See now that I,
The Father speaking…
even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. KJV
The point that I want you to get from this is not to think that it is the dragon that heals the wound. It is the Father that is in control. He chooses which kings of the earth, of the seven continents, that will be closest to Satan that will run his political system for him and although they don’t know it yet, they will be among the first to be judged and led into the Lake of Fire along with Satan.
Preachers and kings of the earth. Dirty and corrupt as the day is long and it’s no longer your hard earned money that they want, it’s your soul.
Deuteronomy 32:40 For I lift up my hand to heaven, and say, I live for ever.
All our Father has to do is lift up His hand to heaven and He has eternity.
Deuteronomy 32:41 If I whet my glittering sword, and mine hand take hold on judgment;
What is judgment? The last day of this age.
I will render vengeance to mine enemies,
Did He say that He wanted you to do it? Nope. He’ll take care of it.
and will reward them that hate me.
A bit of tongue-in-cheek there. Father is going to reward them alright.
Deuteronomy 32:42 I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh; and that with the blood of the slain and of the captives, from the beginning of revenges upon the enemy.
There are more than one instance, such as Armageddon and Hamon-Gog. This will only be the beginning and you should be interested in this for this is your part, as one of His Elect.
Did Jesus not say that He comes to the world, not to bring peace, but to bring fire and how happy He will be if He finds it already kindled? His fire is the truth and His Elect should be the ones, by spreading His Word, that will have it kindled and ready when He gets here.
The embers of His truth are all around us even today. Have you ever seen a brick of charcoal after it has been lit and has been smoldering for a while? The grayish white ash that covers it hides the hot burning underneath. It's difficult to tell if it's still burning under that ash just by looking at it.
You won’t ever be told about these embers in your church; Brian Williams isn’t going to mention it on the NBC Nightly News; nor is CNN, MSNBC and all the others. But if you have eyes that see you will eventually begin to notice something special in certain people because they are the embers of our Father’s truth.
As one of His Elect, could it be that we create the wound? We had a shining example of this set forth by David. The King. Through his seed would come the One that would have the right to open those seals. He set forth the example of slaying the beast.
Let’s find out what is written for us in the slaying of Goliath…
Here is Saul and his armies and all his mighty warriors are trembling at the sight of the Philistine giant. He was about 13’ tall. His armor alone weighed over 273 pounds; his spear was 23’ long and weighed 36 pounds. Awesome! Massive!
And Goliath taunted the Israelite army and this little ‘ole sheepherder named David, the shepherd, is coming up on the scene:
1st Samuel 17:22 And David left his carriage in the hand of the keeper of the carriage, and ran into the army, and came and saluted his brethren.
1st Samuel 17:23 And as he talked with them, behold, there came up the champion, the Philistine of Gath, KJV
I want you to remember this name Gath; it will be important later on in this lecture. In the Hebrew tongue it means winepress but it’s also a geographical location.
Goliath by name, out of the armies of the Philistines, and spake according to the same words: and David heard them.
He was still taunting the army when David showed up.
1st Samuel 17:24 And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid.
1st Samuel 17:25 And the men of Israel said, Have ye seen this man that is come up? surely to defy Israel is he come up: and it shall be, that the man who killeth him, the king will enrich him with great riches, and will give him his daughter, and make his father's house free in Israel. KJV
What a promise! A whole bunch of earthly stuff!
1st Samuel 17:26 And David spake to the men that stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man that killeth this Philistine, and taketh away the reproach from Israel? for who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?
1st Samuel 17:27 And the people answered him after this manner, saying, So shall it be done to the man that killeth him.
1st Samuel 17:28 And Eliab his eldest brother heard when he spake unto the men; and Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou mightest see the battle. KJV
This giant Philistine was blaspheming the name of God. The Antichrist will do the same thing by claiming to be the true Christ.
1st Samuel 17:29 And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause? KJV
David is actually saying that his older brother should have done something here, is there not a cause for doing so?
1st Samuel 17:30 And he turned from him toward another, and spake after the same manner: and the people answered him again after the former manner.
1st Samuel 17:31 And when the words were heard which David spake, they rehearsed them before Saul: and he sent for him.
1st Samuel 17:32 And David said to Saul, Let no man's heart fail because of him; KJV
Don’t be afraid of this giant. I’ll go and kill him. Y’all just sit back and relax, I got this covered.
thy servant will go and fight with this Philistine.
1st Samuel 17:33 And Saul said to David, Thou art not able to go against this Philistine to fight with him: for thou art but a youth, and he a man of war from his youth. KJV
He’s big and tough, mean and bad and didn’t even carry a .45.
1st Samuel 17:34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father's sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock:
Wait a minute! A bear and a lion? And these two had taken a lamb out of the flock, both literally and figuratively.
1st Samuel 17:35 And I went out after him, and smote him, and delivered it out of his mouth: and when he arose against me, I caught him by his beard, and smote him, and slew him. KJV
The whole meat of this is that he was protecting the lamb.
1st Samuel 17:36 Thy servant slew both the lion and the bear: and this uncircumcised Philistine shall be as one of them, seeing he hath defied the armies of the living God.
1st Samuel 17:37 David said moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine. And Saul said unto David, Go, and the Lord be with thee. KJV
Let me assure you, that this “bear” one-world system, this “bear” nation, Russia; and this “lion”, which are the followers of Christ, which means Christians; it is their mouth that shall deceive and cause the deception because of the dragon, the false Christ.
These Christians don’t expect Satan to come looking like the Savior, that’s why they will be a part of the deception.
God shall deliver you out of their hand, as He delivered David out of the paw of this lion and bear.
We’re not playing games here. This whole life that we live is here on earth among all these other peoples and nations and God Himself told Satan that this would be his territory until He returns. Of course all the nations will be involved in the events of the end times because it’s all happening on the earth that we live on and you cannot separate the physical from the spiritual, they are interlocked, intertwined. One does not live without the other.
Russia and the United States of America; Esau and Jacob. Maybe your particular job or how you make your living is paramount in your life and you could care less about all this other stuff. But let me tell you this: mocking and making fun of the days leading up to these events will not make them go away or make them any less true. They will happen and they will happen to and in this generation.
Pull your head out of the sand and start looking around or simply make the old saying ignorance is bliss come true. The only thing wrong with that is that your very soul is at stake here and whether it’s you or your grandchildren or their children that will still be alive when this all happens, they need to be aware of it all and maybe it’s your responsibility to make them aware of it.
Simply going to church every Sunday and listening to the same old religious nonsense, in most cases, isn’t going to cut it anymore. If you can’t get to the truth of the Scriptures by going to church every Sunday, maybe it’s time to change the way you live. It’s up to you.
1st Samuel 17:38 And Saul armed David with his armour, and he put an helmet of brass upon his head; also he armed him with a coat of mail. KJV
You know that this is not the gospel armor, don’t you?
1st Samuel 17:39 And David girded his sword upon his armour, and he assayed to go; KJV
David looked it over but he had not tested it, he didn’t know if he could fight with all this weight on his shoulders, he was just a kid.
for he had not proved it. And David said unto Saul, I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them. And David put them off him.
1st Samuel 17:40 And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five
Five is the number of grace…
smooth stones out of the brook,
The water of life…
and put them in a shepherd's bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine. KJv
Quite a picture, isn’t it? This little ‘ole kid up against this 13’ giant…
1st Samuel 17:41 And the Philistine came on and drew near unto David; and the man that bare the shield went before him. KJV
The shield of the king was so heavy David had to have someone else carry it before him..
1st Samuel 17:42 And when the Philistine looked about, and saw David, he disdained him: for he was but a youth, and ruddy, and of a fair countenance.
1st Samuel 17:43 And the Philistine said unto David, Am I a dog, that thou comest to me with staves? And the Philistine cursed David by his gods.
His gods were Dagon and Baal and Satan.
1st Samuel 17:44 And the Philistine said to David, Come to me, and I will give thy flesh unto the fowls of the air, and to the beasts of the field.
1st Samuel 17:45 Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.
