A Tale of Two Beasts: New Insights into the Day of Atonement 2015

two_beastsWe can find new insights into what is happening next week on the day of atonement by looking at the scriptures about the two beasts appearing in the last days.

Jesus warned us that when we see the first beast standing in the holy place, in the temple in Jerusalem, we should immediately flee to the mountains without even taking time to grab anything out of our house because all hell is going to break loose.

15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house:

18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. (Matthew 24:15-21)

This event happens when the man of lawlessness enters the temple in Jerusalem to establish his throne (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4). His goal is to make himself like the Most High, ruling from Mount Zion.

13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north.

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (Isaiah 14:13-14)

The prophet Daniel called this the abomination of desolation because this man seeks to exalt himself above the stars, above the clouds, to be like God. His actions are an abomination to God and bring desolation upon the whole earth by triggering the start of the great and terrible day of the Lord. On this day the wrath of God is released upon the whole earth (Matthew 24:29-31, Revelation 6:12-17).

When the man of lawlessness takes his seat in the temple to establish his throne there, another will take his seat in the courts of heaven. The courts will sit to judge and rule against him. Then his 42-month reign will be brought to an end, his kingdom will be taken away, and he will be annihilated and destroyed forever. (Daniel 7:26)

This man of lawlessness is the one who is called the antichrist, the first beast who rises up out of the sea (Revelation 13:1). He is in alliance with a second beast who rises up from the earth (Revelation 13:11-18).

The two beasts have very different roles and each has two primary realms of dominion. The dominion of the first beast includes:

  1. Military leader who gathers armies to make war against the Lord (Revelation 19:19). He also makes war against the saints and rules over all nations (Revelation 13:7).
  2. Spiritual leader who exalts himself as God, attempts to rule as God, and is worshipped by everyone whose name is not written in the book of life (Revelation 13:8).

The second beast is called the false prophet because he falsely portrays himself as a spiritual leader, but in reality his roles include:

  1. Law enforcement agent executing anyone who refuses to worship the image of the first beast (Revelation 13:15).
  2. Dominion over the global financial system, requiring everyone to take the mark of the first beast in order to buy or sell anything (Revelation 13:16-18).

We won’t need PayPal after he gets his new Papal financial system in place (I know it’s weak, but it’s late okay?). In fact, we won’t need any of our current payment methods because the mark will replace them all. This new global financial system will be mandatory for everyone small and great, rich and poor, free and bond to take the mark. Anyone who refuses the mark will be unable to buy or sell.

Based on a dream and a vision that I received from the Lord along with over one hundred confirmations, I believe President Obama is the first beast. I shared those in my posts, which are listed in the Antichrist category. The Lord has not yet given me any special revelations about Pope Francis being the second beast, but I have documented many reasons why he is a very strong candidate, which are listed in my previous posts in the False Prophet category.

Pope Francis is currently the only candidate on my watch list. The events taking place next week provide some of the strongest evidence yet that he could be the second beast, or at least the predecessor to the second beast.

pope_nyWhat appears to be shaping up on September 25 is an event very similar to the abomination of desolation.

In the same way that the first beast takes his stand in the spiritual capital of the world, Jerusalem, the second beast takes his stand in the financial capital of the world, New York City. In the same way that the first beast attempts to establish his dominion to rule as God on Mount Zion, the second beast seeks to establish his dominion to rule as the leader of the world’s false church, which I documented in my previous post, The Rise of the False Church Begins on September 23-25 2015. However, as noted above, the false church has nothing to do with what we normally call church and everything to do with the world’s financial system.

In both cases, the judgment of God is released immediately after each beast takes his stand in the world’s strategic center of the realm they are seeking to control. Since the first beast attempts to establish his dominion as God over the whole earth, he takes his stand in the spiritual capital and the wrath of God is immediately released upon the whole earth. Since the second beast attempts to establish his dominion over the global financial system, he takes his stand in the financial capital and the judgment of God immediately begins the destruction of the world’s financial system.

In my previous post, Watch Out for Global Economic Collapse Starting in Germany September 25th, I shared a prophetic warning from a Catholic website that financial calamity will strike while the Pope is in the world’s financial center.

Although the Pope’s visit to New York City occurs two days after the official timing of the day of atonement, I was amazed to see there is now some disagreement about when the day of atonement occurs. The calendar used by modern Israel relies on the scientific schedule of lunar movements, which shows the day of atonement begins at sunset on September 22. However, some Jewish people still rely on the ancient method of new moon sightings from Israel. As explained in my previous post, Day of Atonement Postponed by Two Days Due to Sand Storm, a bizarre six-day sand storm from September 8-13 made it impossible for anyone there to see the new moon. As a result, those who rely on moon sightings have postponed the day of atonement by two days, starting at sunset on September 24.

Even though modern Israel does not officially recognize changes to the calendar based on moon sightings, I find it interesting that the new revised date perfectly coincides with the Pope’s visit to New York City. He arrives shortly before sunset on the 24th and stays there for the full day of the 25th and departs early on the 26th.

In any case, I believe the Pope’s visit to New York is going to be a very significant event that will bring permanent changes to the world.

All the “leaders” of this world, are puppet luciferians. The satanic Jesuit, pope frankie, is close to what I would think the false prophet would be, but I think it’s someone else. I really still can’t see Barry Soetoro being anything, but what he is, a wimpy muslim banker sodomite puppet. He has ZERO charisma, no intellect & has no real power. I actually think it would be hilarious, if satan chose to use Barry as his tool to fulfill Revelations… I would be more inclined to think “it’s” a hybrid of some kind. Made with advanced ultra technology, to “house” lucifers spirit. We know they made an army of nephilim super soldiers for the appointed time, after all…I say all eyes on Syria & Israel. God bless covenant Israel. God bless you & yours greatly. shalom

I hope there is no sandstorm when Messiah returns; people could miss it, like the foolish virgins. How are we going to know when the internet goes down?

The Lord said we would know His voice & be guided by the Holy Spirit. So it’s business as usual. No worries & no fear, but fear of the Lord through REVERENCE.
EPHESIANS 6:10-20
May God bless you greatly. Shalom

Somebody planned it this way. To signal a NEW birth of the NWO (New World Odor). September is giving the signs of what is to come for it is the FIRST time a Pope is addressing Congress.
They are telling US what is coming and what is to be.

I thought that the abomination of desolation in the holy place is the beginning of 3 1/2 years of tribulation and jesus said “Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36).

Please correct me if I’m wrong. I also wonder how you could expect any certain date considering Jesus himself said not even he knows the time, only the Father.

With respect and best regards, thank you for your service

James, a respectful point of disagreement here: the Day of Atonement begins at sunset on the 22nd and runs through sunset on the 23rd. It is always 10 days after Rosh HaShana, which began at sunset on the 13th and ran through sunset on the 14th. This 10-day period is called the Days of Awe, because it is a period of deep repentance prior to the complete fasting on the Day of Atonement.

According to the new moon sighted in Israel the 1st day of the 7th monthwas the evening of Sept 15th to the evening of the 16th. So that would make the day of Atonement begin at sunset on the 24th and end at sunset the 25th.

Wow. I don’t know where to start, but Daniel’s 70th week was fulfilled at the time of Jesus. The scripture from Matthew 24 regarding this was fulfilled in 70 AD. Then there is the Antichrist issue. Firstly, the antichrist from Rev 13 is NOT a man. Proof is that he spends eternity in the lake of fire which a man cannot do because men do not get eternal life (1 John 5:11-12). The antichrist in Rev 13 is a beast, or eternal being. And he had a fatal wound that was healed. Fatal wounds kill men. The man of lawlessness in 2 Thes 2, well, he IS a man and he is NOT the antichrist. Proof is that in v8 Jesus destroys him. Jesus does not destroy the antichrist so they can’t be the same guy. Just saying what the Bible teaches. More at ItsHisStory.com God Bless.

“Fatal wounds kill men.” lol… have you never heard of someone being brought back to life? Hardly difficult when God allows it as He clearly will do in this case.

The false prophet breathes life into the image of the beast. Life is pneuma, a spirit: the spirit of Apollyon who was released from the pit. This image, or representation could be a lifeless body that fell from a head wound. The spirit of Apollyon could take up residence.

The Day of Atonement starts at sun down Sept 22nd and is September 23rd. Check! Pope is meeting with Obama in Washington that day.

The true “day of atonement” happened once and for all on Good Friday, when the perfect Son of God offered Himself as the final, perfect Sacrifice. So there are no more Jewish days of atonement, and haven’t been for over 2000 years.
