“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”
America is the “Lamb with two horns”. “Two horns” symbolize “civil” and “ecclessiastical” powers, also known as the “separation of church and state“. That’s what these two horns mean. America started as a nation like a Lamb, meek and gentle; but now America acts as an authoritarian figure with a dictatorial rulership (speaks as a Dragon), and is able to devour any nation that will go against her policies and will. Not even the United Nations, can thwart her plans and decisions.
America started as a Christian nation founded on Biblical principles under Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. Now, America forbids even the reading of the Bible in schools and saying prayers to Jesus in public. It has began to remove icons of the ten commandments from every government insitution, and is now catering to the dictates of a lot of paganistic and atheistic religion. It has compromised with God’s Word, and she’s reaping a lot of recompense from God, such as the New York tragedy, the Katrina Hurricanes, and more. One day it will remove its “one nation under God” from their coins and money systems.
America started with a constitution that was founded on the Holy Scriptures. America’s Bill of Rights was pro-people and pro-God. Their bill of rights include the following rights and privileges:
Freedom of religion | Freedom of speech | Freedom of the press | Freedom to assemble | Freedom to petition the government | Freedom to bear arms | Protection from quartering soldiers | Protection from unreasonable search and seizure | Freedom from double jeopardy | Right to a speedy trial | Right to face an accuser | Protection against self incrimination | Right to trial by jury | Protection from excessive bails and fines | Protection from cruel and unusual punishment.
Yet how many of these rights are still in effect today?
It seems that prayer upsets some people in America. When Minister Joe Wrightwas asked to open the new session of the Kansas Senate years ago, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but this is what they heard instead:
“ Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask your forgiveness and to seek your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, “Woe to those who call evil good”, but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual equilibrium and reversed our values. We confess that. We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called it Pluralism. We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery. We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare.
We have killed our unborn and called it choice. We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable. We have neglected to discipline our children and called it building self-esteem. We have abused power and called it politics.
We have coveted our neighbor’s possessions and called it ambition.
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and called it freedom of expression. We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers and called it enlightenment. Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us from every sin and set us free. Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the center of Your will and to openly ask these things in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen!”
The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked out during the prayer in protest.
“And he exerciseth all the power of the “first beast” before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein toworship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”
The “first Beast” or Dragon behind America is nothing else but Papal Rome, whose deadly wound (as the Old Pagan Roman Imperial Empire) was healed, and has revived anew today as the new “Papal Empire”. From Imperial Rome (wounded) to Papal Rome (healed). Rome as the “Dragon” is truly identified and exposed in these Scriptures below:
REVELATION 12:4 -
“And the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.”
Rome killed all the babies two-year old and below years ago in Jerusalem whenKing Herod tried to get rid of the Baby Jesus. It is clear here that the womanbeing spoken of in the above-mentioned verse is the blessed virgin Mary. She and her husband Joseph fled and took away the baby Jesus long before King Herod got hold of him. Herod was the Dragon’s pawn.
“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of thebeast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an “image to the beast”, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”
America is and will completely become a slave to Rome and will cause all people of the world to bow down and worship the Pope in due time (read II Thess. 2:3-4). American archBishop Levada is now properly positioned at theVatican and will take-over the Roman headship once German Pope Ratzinger expires or gives up his post. And then when this thing happens, America will be able to totally implement the New World Order in full power: a “one-world govenment” and a “one-world religion”, run by an American Pope.
America, right now is bankrupt and is living in a past reputation. She is indebted to Rome, for Rome owns the gold of the world, the World Bank and the IMF. Theeuro dollar is even much more valuable today than the American dollar and is already widely accepted as a global monetary system.
America, as the verses say, will do great wonders in the sight of men to deceive the world and bring them under subjection to the Roman hierarchy by making “fire to come down from the heaven”. “Fire” here simply refers to America’s nuclear capability of launching atomic bombs and weapons, an example of which was dropped at Nagasaki and Hiroshima, in Japan during thesecond world war in 1945. She has been doing the same “miracle” all through the years, the latest of which her attack using ballistic missiles to Iraq and Afghanistan. This is what this “miracle” is all about, which makes the nations of the world “wonder” over America causing them to bow down on their knees and tremble before the face of America. America is a tool of Rome today in its greedy move to conquer the whole world under its one roof, as seen and predicted by the prophet Daniel in the image he interpreted from Nebucchadnezar‘s dream (the feet of iron and clay, the last kingdom in the end time- Read Daniel 2:37-41).
“And he had power to give life unto the “image of the beast”, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the “image of the beast”should be killed.”
Another role of America in Bible prophesy is to create an ‘image” erected unto the “Beast”. A “Beast” in Bible terminology represents a “power“. An “image” unto the Beast is therefore something likened to the “power of Rome“, a duplicate or clone of Roman Catholicism. There’s no other power today in the world that’s similar to the power of Roman Catholicism but the Protestant’s “World Council of Churches“. It is a union of all Protestant churches, Orthodox, Evangelical, Fundamentalists, and Pentecostal churches. This movement was birthed in America. American theologians and Doctors of Divinity founded the “Ecumenical Movement”, which is nothing but an “Image untoRome“, composed of the daughter harlots system of the Mother Whore herself. This “Image of the Beast” will one day force all people, denominations, and religions into the system of a “one-world religion” under the auspices of a “one-world government” which will all be under Rome. In fact, it is the main thrust of Pope Benedict XVI now, and is under negotiation with World Council of Churches through its Chairman Sam Kobia.
Catholics, Protestants, Moslems, and all will be forced to come under one roof, under the auspices of Rome and under her WCC harlot daughters. In due time, this move will be enforced by the military forces of the United Nations, and no man “can buy or sell” unless they belong to this system. This will be the final event of the dreaded “Mark of the Beast“. Read on to the next verses.
REVELATION 13:16, 17, 18
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in theirforeheads: 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 name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding countthe number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.”
INSCRIBED IN THE VATICAN THRONE ARE THE LATIN WORDS “VICARIVS FILII DEI” which when translated MEANS “Instead Of The Son Of God”.
It becomes even more enlightening when one understands the numerical valueof this blasphemous title. The value of these Roman numerals in this TITLE totals to 666! It is on this throne that the Anti-Christ will one day reveal himself. “666” is the total outcome when you add the Roman numerals from the pope’s title ‘VICARIVS FILII DEI”.
What the prophet William Branham
spoke about this AMERICA and ROME TANDEM:
“Did you notice this United States is number thirteen in everything it does? You know it was established the thirteen colonies? You know the flag had thirteen stars in it first? You know everything that the United States does is in a number thirteen? Did you know it appears in the Bible in Revelations thirteen? Certainly does. The little beast, the lamb that come up out of water, not thickness and multitudes of people,… not out of the water, but out of a land where there’s no one. It had two little horn: civil and ecclesiastic powers. And he was a lamb: freedom of religion. And after while, they went together and he spoke like the dragon, and exercised all the power that Rome did before him. That’s coming to our nation. You mark it down. You watch to the Confederation of Churches and the Catholic unite together. Watch what takes place. People who follow the Pillar of Fire will certainly have a rough time, but they’re ready for the translation at that time, that’s right, just ready to go. “For the Lamb overcome them,” said the Bible, “and them that followed Him, because they were called the chosen and the faithful, the Elected of God.”
(HEBREWS.CHAPTER.FOUR_ JEFF.IN HEB SUNDAY_ 57-0901E)
“You know we are living in the end time. It is in this age that the churchesare going to come together. And as they are even now controlling world politics, they will soon control the finances of the world. Then, if you don’t belong to the world organization of churches, you won’t be able to buy or to sell. You will lose all. Those who stay true to God and keep their garments clean from the defilement of this `world-system’ of church orders will be physically bereft. There will be presented to them a great temptation to give in. Preachers will give in with the excuse that they will serve God within the framework of the antichrist beast-system. They will give in to the flatteries and blandishments of the hierarchy. And the people will follow these false shepherds right into the slaughter. But in the judgment they will all be found naked. They will not be given those white robes; neither will they walk with Him. You can’t walk in the spotted garments of the world, holding hands with the devil here, and then expect to be with God. It is time to wake up and hear the voice of God crying, “Come out of her (organized religion) My people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, that ye receive not of her plagues.” Amen. God is speaking. Shun the religions of this world like you shun the plague. Leave off walking with the world and make your garments white by repentance and the blood of the Lamb. But do it now, for tomorrow may be too late.” (265-1 SARDISEAN CHURCH AGE – CHURCH.AGE.BOOK.CPT.7)
In 1954, William Branham prophesied this thing coming:
“I believe, one of these glorious days, when this united confederation of church goes together, and the new pope is brought out of the United Statesand put over there according to prophecy, then they’ll form an image like unto the beast. And I tell you, the true Church of God will be drove together. The real, true believers out of Methodist, Baptist, Presbyterian, Pentecostal, Nazarene, Pilgrim Holiness, whatever they’ll be, will go together and cemented by the love of God, that’ll make the Body of the Lord Jesus Christ, all the believers. And agnostics and shallow-minded will be cast to one side; they’ll go right on into the confederation of churches.” (ACTS.OF.THE.HOLY.SPIRIT.title JEFF.IN V-26 N-9 54-1219E)
YOU MUST DECIDE FOR YOURSELF
“But as this move becomes the “IMAGE ERECTED TO THE BEAST,” the saints will be gone in the rapture. And this little delightful, winsome movement that started out in fellowship at Ephesus will become the monster of Satan that defiles and deceives the whole world. For the church system of the Roman Catholic and the Protestant in coming together will control the whole wealth of the world system and force the whole earth into its religious trap, or will kill them, by refusing them the privilege of buying and selling whereby they would make a living. This will be accomplished simply, for the harlot’s daughters are all but gone back to her. In the meantime, Rome has acquired nearly all the supplies of gold. The Jews have the bonds and all the paper. At the right time, the harlot will destroy the present day money system by calling in all the paper, and demanding gold. With no gold, the system falls. The Jews will be trapped and come into the alliance, and the harlot church will take over the whole world. ( 314-1 PHILADELPHIAN.CHURCH.AGE – CHURCH.AGE.BOOK CPT.8)
THE JEWS WILL BE TRAPPED BY ROME
“And after the church is taken away, Rome and the Jews will make a covenant with one another. The Bible said they would, with the holy people.And now notice, they’ll make it, because why? This nation is going to be busted, and the rest of the world that’s on the gold standard is busted. You know that. If we’re living off of taxes, due bills for forty years from now, where are we at? There’s only one thing can happen. That’s to call in the currency and pay off the bonds; and we can’t do it. Wall Street owns them, andWall Street’s controlled by the Jews; the rest of it’s in the Vatican, and the Jews has got the rest of it in Wall Street with the commerce of the world.
The rich merchants of the earth hold it, and then there’s only one thing to do:The Catholic church can pay it off. She’s the only one that’s got the money; she can do it, and she will do it. And in doing this to get it, she’ll compromise with the Jews and make a covenant, and when she makes this covenant with the Jews… Now, remember, I’m taking this from the Scriptures. And now, when she does this and makes this covenant, we notice in Daniel 8:23and 25 he will cause craft to prosper (And craft is manufacturing.), in his hand.(THE.FIRST.SEAL_ JEFF.IN MONDAY_ 63-0318)
“And he makes this covenant with the Jews, and in the midst of this three and a half years, he breaks his covenant as soon as he gets the thing wrapped up and gets the money of the Jews tied up. And when he does that, oh, my, oh, my, he’s called the antichrist until the end of the church age, for he is the–he and his children are against Christ and the Word. This man’s called the antichrist. Now, he’s going to hold the money. And that’s where I think he’ll come in. Just a minute, while I say this, then I want to go back to it in a minute.
He’s called the antichrist and will be called the antichrist in the sight of God until the end time. Now, but then he’ll be called something else. (THE.FIRST.SEAL_ JEFF.IN MONDAY_ 63-0318)
“Now, when he gets the money all under control, then he will break this covenant with the Jews, as Daniel here said he would do it, in the midst of the last half of the seventy weeks of Daniel. And then, brother, what will he do? He will have all of the world trade and the commerce, a pact with the world, ’cause he will hold the wealth of the world completely. And during that time, them two prophets will rise on the scene and call that hundred and forty-four thousand. Then what will take place? Then the mark of the beast of Revelations 13 will set in, ’cause he holds all the commerce, trade and everything of the world. And what will take place then? The mark of the beast will come in that no man can buy or sell except him that has the mark of the beast. Thank God, the Church will be enjoying a great three and a half years in glory. Don’t have to go through that.” (THE.FIRST.SEAL_ JEFF.IN MONDAY_ 63-0318)
A WOMAN WILL RULE AMERICA
“But there’ll be a powerful woman. Now, remember, this is on tape too. A powerful woman, great woman, she’ll either be President, or it’ll be a woman representing the Catholic church (which I think it is) will take over here someday and she’ll rule this country. This nation is a woman’s nation. Flag was made by a woman; it’s number thirteen. She started out, thirteen stars, thirteen stripes, thirteen colonies. Everything’s thirteen, thirteen, thirteen, right on down. Thirteen stars on her silver dollar now. Everything’s a thirteen. It’s number thirteen, and appears in the 13th chapter of Revelations: completely thirteen. Everything is “woman, woman, woman, woman, woman,” right on down. And she took over all the offices. She’s took over Hollywood. She’s took over the nation. She’s took over the offices. She’s took over everything there is; equal rights with the man, votes with the man, cusses like a man, drinks like a man, anything else. And the–just bait for the Catholic church, for the worship of a woman… And it finally end up, I predicted, a woman will control her. (THE.LAODICEAN.CHURCH.AGE_ JEFF.IN ROJC 493-550 SUNDAY_ 60-1211E)
“Now we find, again, that, this mark of the beast that was formed here. America, is, number thirteen. It was born with thirteen colonies. It had a flag that had thirteen stars, thirteen stripes. And it even appears in Revelations the 13th chapter. And America has always been a woman, represented on our coins.Even the Indian head, on a penny, is a woman’s profile. We know that, know the history of it. Everything, the Liberty Bell, and everything else, the liberty… Statue of Liberty is, everything, a woman. A woman; number thirteen.” (BROKEN.CISTERNS_ JEFF.IN V-5 N-13 SUNDAY_ 64-0726E)
NEW YORK TRAGEDY PROPHESIED
In 1953, 48 years before the TWIN TOWERS of New York collapsed, God’s prophet, William M. Branham warned of something that would happen in New York.
He said, “Now, there’s something about New York City. Now, you watch. Remember, there’s something about New York City. Don’t forget that, you hear? All right. I had just left New York, New York.” (Africa Trip Report – 11/09 1953)
Twice he mentions “there’s something about New York City”. After saying it the first time Brother Branham pauses for a long time before repeating it and warning the people “watch” and not “forget it”. What happened in New York, Washington, Pennsylvania is the fulfilment of another prophecy Brother Branham made in 1965. He prophesied of a time when “insanity would rule”.
LOS ANGELES WILL SINK BENEATH THE OCEAN
Brother Branham also prophesied that California will sink beneath the ocean. Here are some excerpts from his sermons to warn us all:
“Look at the earthquakes over here in California. I predict, before the coming of the Lord Jesus, that God will sink that place. I believe that Hollywood and Los Angeles, and them filthy places over there, that God Almighty will sink them. They’ll go beneath the bottom of the sea. And it’s so much sin, you see, it’s the barrier.” (WHO.DO.YOU.SAY.THIS.IS_ PHOENIX.AZ V-6 N-9 SUNDAY_ 64-1227)
“I remember, just my last Message in California, where I thought I’d never go back again, when I predicted, “Los Angeles will go beneath the ocean. THUS SAITH THE LORD.” It will. She is done. She is washed. She is finished. What hour? I don’t know when, but it will be sunk. Right after that, the earthquakes begin to jolt and bow.” (THE.RAPTURE_ YUMA.AZ V-5 N-14 SATURDAY_ 65-1204)
“Look here! Do you know what the Lord says about Los Angeles and these places here? “She’s gone!” You remember what I told you, about two years ago, how that earthquake would come in Canada up here, Alaska? I also tell you that “Hollywood and Los Angeles is sliding into the ocean. California, you’re doomed! Not only California ; but you, world, you’re doomed! Church, unless you get right with God, you’re doomed!” THUS SAITH THE HOLY SPIRIT!
Have you ever heard me use that Name unless it come to pass? Ask you! You’ve known me twenty years. Did I ever tell you anything in the Name of the Lord but what come to pass? If everything I’ve ever told you would happen, happened, say “Amen.” [Congregation says, "Amen!"--Ed.] See? I tell you, now is the hour, you better be getting right, all of us.” (LEADERSHIP_ COVINA.CA V-7 N-7 TUESDAY_ 65-1207)
“And that same Spirit of God that said all these things, and done all these things, It said there, “Oh, city, Capernaum, who called yourself by the name of the Angels, Los Angeles, how you’ve exalted yourself into heaven! The very root and seat of Satan, see, you’ve exalted yourself.” Preachers, it’s a graveyard for them. Good men go there and die like rats. What havoc! “You that call yourself by the name of the Angels; if the mighty works had been done in Sodom, that been done in you, it’d stood today. But your hour has come.” (THE.RAPTURE_ YUMA.AZ V-5 N-14 SATURDAY_ 65-1204)
“And I went and got the Scripture. I said, “There is something about that in the Bible.” And it was Jesus rebuking Capernaum, all those coastal cities that He had visit. Why, He said, “Capernaum, thou art exalted into Heaven, will be brought down into hell.” He said, “For if the works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah that’s been done in you, it’d been standing today.” And at that time, Sodom and Gomorrah was in the bottom of the sea.
And just after that, maybe a hundred years or something, after Jesus’ prophecy, Capernaum, the only coastal city that He had visit, a earthquake sunk it in the sea. And you know that was a direct answer to California, to Los Angeles. “(TRYING.TO.DO.GOD.A.SERVICE.WITHOUT.BEING.THE.WILL.OF.GOD_ JEFF.IN V-4 N-8 SUNDAY_ 65-0718M)
“Now, the last few days, the great roaring and popping. Then, here come out a paper of science, said, “It’s all honeycombed, it’s got to go under.” They just know it. And you watch, the water will come plumb back into the Salton Sea. Los Angeles is doomed for judgment. I tell you before it’s happened, that you might know when it does happen.“ (WORKS.IS.FAITH.EXPRESSED_ SHREVEPORT.LA V-7 N-1 FRIDAY_ 65-1126)
“That is solemn warning. We don’t know what time, and you don’t know what time, that this city one day is going to be laying out here in the bottom of this ocean. “Oh, Capernaum,” said Jesus, “thou who exalted into heaven, will be brought down into hell. For, if the mighty works had been done in Sodom and Gomorrah, it’d have been standing to this day.” And Sodom, Gomorrah lays in the bottom of the Dead Sea. And Capernaum is in the bottom of the sea.
Thou city, who claims to be the city of the Angels, who has exalted yourself into heaven, and sent all the dirty, filthy things of fashions and things, till even the foreign countries come here to pick up our filth and send it away, to your fine churches and steeples, and so forth, the way you do.Remember, one day you’ll be laying in the bottom of the sea, your great honeycomb under you right now. The wrath of God is belching right beneath you. How much longer He will hold this sandbar hanging out over that? When, that ocean out yonder, a mile deep, will slide in there, plumb back to the Salton Sea. It’ll be worse than the last day of Pompeii. Repent, Los Angeles. Repent, the rest of you, and turn to God. The hour of His wrath is upon the earth. Flee while there’s time to flee, and come into Christ.”(THE.CHOOSING.OF.A.BRIDE_ LA.CA V-2 N-28 THURSDAY_ 65-0429E)
“So is it today. The very God that America claims to serve will bring judgment upon the nation and destroy it. I hope that gets so deep that you’ll never wiggle out of it. The very One that you claim that you love and with your own man-made dogmas, and immoral life, and decay that you got in you, away from the Word of God will destroy you someday. That’s THUS SAITH THE LORD. Nothing else left for us.” (THE.WAY.OF.A.TRUE.PROPHET.OF.GOD_ JEFF.IN V-3 N-14 SUNDAY_ 62-0513M)
SCARY DREAMS OF PEOPLE ABOUT CALIFORNIA SINKINGTHE SEVEN VISIONS OF WILLIAM BRANHAM
TAKEN FROM HIS SERMON “THE LAODICEAN CHURCH AGE” - CHURCH AGE BOOK CHAPTER 9, JEFFERSONVILLE, INDIANA, USA -DECEMBER 1960.
“The Lord Jesus spoke to me and said that the coming of the Lord was drawing nigh, but that before He came, seven major events would transpire. I wrote them all down and that morning I gave forth the revelation of the Lord.
(1) The first vision was that Mussolini would invade Ethiopia and that nation would “fall at his steps”. That vision surely did cause some repercussions, and some were very angry when I said it and would not believe it. But it happened that way. He just walked in there with his modern arms and took over. The natives didn’t have a chance. But the vision also said that Mussolini would come to a horrible end with his own people turning on him. That came to pass just exactly as it was said.
(2) The next vision foretold that an Austrian by the name of Adolph Hitler would rise up as dictator over Germany, and that he would draw the world into war. It showed the Siegfried line and how our troops would have a terrible time to overcome it. Then it showed that Hitler would come to a mysterious end.
(3) The third vision was in the realm of world politics for it showed me that there would be three great ISMS, Facism, Nazism, Communism, but that the first two would be swallowed up into the third. The voice admonished, “WATCH RUSSIA, WATCH RUSSIA. Keep your eye on the King of the North.”
(4) The fourth vision showed the great advances in science that would come after the second world war. It was headed up in the vision of a plastic bubble-topped car that was running down beautiful highways under remote control so that people appeared seated in this car without a steering wheel and they were playing some sort of a game to amuse themselves.
(5) The fifth vision had to do with the moral problem of our age, centering mostly around women. God showed me that women began to be out of their place with the granting of the vote. Then they cut off their hair, which signified that they were no longer under the authority of a man but insisted on either equal rights, or in most cases, more than equal rights. She adopted men’s clothing and went into a state of undress, until the last picture I saw was a woman naked except for a little fig leaf type apron. With this vision I saw the terrible perversion and moral plight of the whole world.
(6) Then in the sixth vision there arose up in America a most beautiful, but cruel woman. She held the people in her complete power. I believed that this was the rise of the Roman Catholic Church, though I knew it could possibly be a vision of some woman rising in great power in America due to a popular vote by women.
(7) The last and seventh vision was wherein I heard a most terrible explosion. As I turned to look I saw nothing but debris, craters, and smoke all over the land of America.
