A TEMPLE, A SACRIFICE & A
through a 7-year agreement or Covenant
garantuees religious rights to all traditional religions of faith!
He also promises the World peace by settling the current Middle-East
crisis by working out a delicate compromise between Arabs and Jews,
most likely by declaring Jerusalem an international city under U.N.
supervision. Somehow out of the ashes of the Economic
Crash and a near-nuclear international
war, this "7th
head" or manifestation "of
the Beast" --this Antichrist
World Order-- "gets
healed of a deadly wound by a sword!"--Or
war? As a result the Bible says that "ALL
the world wonders after the Beast",
totally impressed with his uniqueness and military power! Either that, or
himself gets "wounded
by a sword"--or gun?--and
somehow revives miraculously from "his deadly
wound!"--Or both perhaps?
As the Scripture clearly says that later, in the middle of the seven years, the AC will desecrate the "Sanctuary" by placing an "Abomination of Desolation" and that he will "take away the daily sacrifice", it can only mean that the Jews will first build their new Temple and altar, to even be able to start their old religion of Daily Sacrifice! So the AC not only gives the Jews official rights to the "Temple Mount" on Mt. Moriah (or the Moslim "Sharm el Sharif") in Jerusalem, where their ancient Temple stood until 70 AD, and where the Moslim "Dome of the Rock" Mosque stands today, but he also enables them to rebuild their Temple to resume their age-old ritual of animal sacrifice that was suspended for almost 2000 years! Therefore many Jews will receive and proclaim him as their long awaited "Messiah!"
During this time, after the healing of the "deadly wound", "another beast" is foretold to arise. He seems to be some kind of spiritual leader or "guru" whom the Bible calls "the False Prophet!" He is super-naturally empowered by Satan--or Lucifer as his worshippers call him--to do "great signs and wonders" like calling down "fire from heaven" to deceive the World in order to win them over to the AC! He will speak like the Devil and "exercise all the power" of the AC "before him." He's kind of like his P.R. manager, the executive arm of the AC, his "John the Baptist" "preparing the way" of the False Christ!" Thus this False Prophet starts a new "World Religion" promoting the worship of the AC and the creation of some idol or "image to the Beast!" Satan prepares the World's people through the False prophet, to the worship of himself as "god", by telling them to worship "the first Beast"--the Antichrist--"whose deadly wound by a sword was healed" because Satan knows that he's soon going to possess him! Clever Devil! So, "take heed that ye be not deceived" as Jesus explicitly warns us to watch out! Luke 21:8
"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. And they worshipped
the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped
the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? Who is able
to make war with him? Rev.
