Satan’s Plan

Revelation 12:1
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

The twelve stars are symbolic of the signs of the zodiac, representing the twelve tribes of Israel.

12:2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

12:3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

Satan’s governmental and spiritual structure in the first earth age consisted of seven dominions to which he appointed seven heads, or crowns. The woman was travailing in the birth of the second age.

12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

Satan’s failed plan caused all of God’s stars, or children, to have to pass through the flesh in the second earth age which was God’s plan of salvation. At this point we come to earth, and Satan has done everything in his power to devour the promised seed through which Messiah would be born.

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

John was standing upon the sand of the sea. We are still on earth. In Satan’s new planned structure we find ten crowns, instead of seven. And, the ten crowns are placed on the ten horns, rather than the seven heads as in his first plan. What does all this mean?

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Satan has the power to give authority to individuals and nations on earth. He has no power of authority over those that exercise the power Jesus Christ gave us in Luke 10:18-19. You must be familiar with Satan’s power or face the possibility of being deceived by him.

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.

This is the multi-headed structure, a political system.

13:4 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?

They worshipped Satan, after he heals the wounded political beast. Who is able to make war with him?

13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty [and] two months.

Satan will rule the one world system for forty and two months, shortened to five months for the elect’s sake.

17:7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

The woman represents the people that are deceived by antichrist. The angel is going to explain to John the mystery of the beast which has seven heads and ten horns.

The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

17:9 And here [is] the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, [and] the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

The ten horns are as nothing, until the antichrist appears on earth and gives them power.

These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him [are] called, and chosen, and faithful.

And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

Most people will be deceived. Finally, we get to the ten horns. But, why are they hateful to the whore of Babylon? Babylon represents those that are deceived by antichrist. The ten horns are persecuting them. The ten horns are supposed to be helping the whore.


For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.


Three World Ages

Gen 1:2
And the earth “was” (without form), and void; and darkness was
upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the
face of the waters.

The Katabole,
…and The Earth (AGE) that “WAS”

Jer 1:4
Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Jer 1:5
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee;
and before thou camest forth out of the womb
I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a
prophet unto the nations.

There are Three Earth ages and Three Heavenly Ages of Time.

Each AGE coincides with the other.
The First Earth AGE,(And Heavenly age), (IS PAST).

That verse from Jeremiah shows We were with the LORD,


Dinosaurs were among GOD’S Children,
before the age of Flesh began.

The Katabole,
…and The Earth that “WAS”

Mat 13:34 All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in
parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:

Mat 13:35 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by
the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables;
I will utter things which have been kept secret from the
[foundation] of the world.

The Word “Foundation” (Greek)
Strong’s 2602 katabole kat-ab-ol-ay’ from 2598; a
deposition, i.e. founding; figuratively, conception:
–conceive, foundation.

Have you been taught of the (Katabole),
(I.E.) The foundation of this World (AGE/AION)

Gen 1:1
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.(period)

…..It does not say when this happened , only that “HE” Did
create The Heaven and The Earth… (Period)

This earth is millions of Years Old.

Gen 1:2
And the earth “was” (without form), and void; and darkness was
upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the
face of the waters.

(Millions Of Years have Passed between these two verses).
between (Genesis One, Verse One) and (Genesis One, VERSE TWO)

The word (Was) from Gen 1:2,
Strong’s 1961 hayah haw-yaw a primitive root (Compare 1933);
to exist, i.e. be or become,come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or
auxiliary):–beacon, X altogether, be(-come),
accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come
(to pass), do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have,
last, pertain, quit (one-)self, require, X use.

The Earth “Was”,(BECAME), Without Form, The world was not Created (Without Form),
“I.E.”(Heb-“Tohu”) which means “Waste” It “became” that way because of satan and those whom he deceived in
The First Earth Age.

In Genesis 1:2 ….Without Form:

8414 tohuw to’-hoo from an unused root meaning to lie waste;
a desolation (of surface), i.e. desert; figuratively, a
worthless thing; adverbially, in vain:–confusion, empty place,
without form, nothing, (thing of) nought, vain, vanity, waste,

922 bohuw bo’-hoo from an unused root (meaning to be empty);
a vacuity, i.e. (superficially) an undistinguishable ruin:–
emptiness, void.

After Millions of years (Of Happiness and Joy); satan because
of Self Pride ,tried to steal the “Kingdom” from “GOD”(Rev 12:4)
When He deceived 1/3 of “GOD’S Children into Following “him”.

It was also called “satans overthrow” and for this very reason you are now born into a flesh body.

Eze 28:14
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee
so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up
and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

Eze 28:15
Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast
created, till iniquity was found in thee.

Eze 28:16
By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst
of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will
cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will
destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones
of fire.

Eze 28:17
Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast
corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast
thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may
behold thee.


Our passover lamb is Jesus. Eggs, bunny rabbits, etc., has nothing to do with the day we celebrate Jesus Resurrecting and being our sacrifice from God to save our souls. The churches should not include the “easter festival traditions” on the day we celebrate.


Daniel 11 End Time Prophecy

King of the South (south of Jerusalem)= Islamic, like Iraq/Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon, Algeria, Egypt, Libya and Iran. King of the North= Europe

Daniel 11:40 And at the time of the end shall the king of the south push at him: and the king of the north shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, and with horsemen, and with many ships; and he shall enter into the countries, and shall overflow and pass over.

[the king of the south will push at him, this means to strike or “wage war”] Much of this force will be south of Jerusalem, but not all of it.

Daniel 11:41 He shall enter also into the glorious land, and many countries shall be overthrown: but these shall escape out of his hand, even Edom, and Moab, and the chief of the children of Ammon.

Daniel 11:42 He shall stretch forth his hand also upon the countries: and the land of Egypt shall not escape.

Daniel 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.

East= Orient / the North= Russia


There are so many people who think that the Mark of the Beast-666 will be imprinted on their foreheads or hands and this is not true.

If you accept the mark of the beast…it means that you will believe in (forehead=your mind) the antichrist and do his work (with your hands).



Revelation 13

Revelation 13 newsletter:  Reprinted from SHEPHERDS BIBLE. Commentary by Arnold Murray, D.R.E.

The Shepherd’s Chapel

Commonly called the “Beast” chapter

1. And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

Water represents people in Revelation.  The beast rises out of the people.  His purpose is to defame or blaspheme the name of Yahweh, the living God.  So we can understand Zechariah 8:23, regarding ten men who take hold out of all languages of the nations and shall take hold of the skirt of he who is a Kenite, (or as it is recorded there ‘Jew”), and say let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.  Let us pinpoint this beast further.  In Revelation 17:3 it says, “So he carried me away in the Spirit and lifted me up in my spirit and he carried me into the wilderness and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast full of names of blasphemy”.  Here we see the same subject matter “full of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns”.  We know that the word Revelation means “to reveal”.  Therefore, we understand the meaning of this.  It becomes very clear to us that the ten heads are ten rulers that will take hold out of seven nations. This beast is a political beast that makes up the political system which is one—worldism. It is the political system that the false-Christ shall use to make ready the holy place, (so-called).  This system is now in the holy place, ready to receive its king.   Lucifer is that king.

2.   And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

We know that the dragon is Lucifer, old Satan himself.  And that these are nations that are spoken of in Daniel 7. We’re going to have more on this, as we identify these nations. Take the Bear as an example. Russia’s symbol is the Bear, and we know that Russia will be one of the nations, along with Red China, that will stand against us in these last days.

Leopard is #5245 in Hebrew, it’s root means, “to spot or stain”. Deuteronomy 32:5 tells us who this is; “They have corrupted themselves, their spot is not the spot of His (Yahweh’s) children. “They are a perverse and crooked generation.” He was talking about the Kenites, who slipped in among the Jews and brought in false-Zionism”.   Any Zionism without Christ is false, therefore, this Leopard represents the zionism of today.  These nations and powers will be better identified to us when we study the Book of Daniel.   His mouth is as the mouth of a lion.  Did you ever see a lion take its prey? It is an act of viciousness when the lion kills its prey, or takes its meat.  It  picks it up and shakes it violently. It doesn’t just chew,  it shakes, tears, and rips.  So we see the mood that is set forth toward the remnant that is left when, this system appears.   It indicates that there will not be a great deal of compassion in this system.

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.

4. And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying,  Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?

We know that this beast is a political system. Who is really able to make war with the political structure of the Kenites? Brainwashing has grown vastly, due to the fact that the mass media is involved.  If a political system, rather than a beast, receives a wound in its head, we are not talking about a flesh wound, but a political wound.   We know when we go into one worldism that there will be hard sailing for awhile.   Something will happen whereby it will almost fail.   Who will come and heal the wound? The Dragon himself, Lucifer. We know from Revelation 9, that the beast will have five months, not 3-1/2 years. When he comes he will appear as the Christ to the Christian churches and will have no difficulty whatsoever in patching up any inadequacies in the political system to make it a complete and total success.  What will the churches be saying at this time?  “This is Christ returned to the earth. The (Kenite) Jewish Messiah has come to rapture the church and the people away.” He will perform miracles.

We can see how  rapidly the wound would be healed and people would readily join and cleave to him.  No one will be able to make war with the beast physically, or otherwise.  When you have one-worldism, you have total disarmament and there is no way to make war.

5. And there was given unto him a mouth sneaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months

The tongue of Christ is a two-edged sword which brings forth the truth. We see that this one is ‘quite the opposite, because from his tongue comes nothing but lies and confusion. The amount of time Satan was originally granted was forty and two months, which is exactly 3-1/2 years. However, this period has been shortened to five months. Our Father has shown us how long we will have to prevail to over-come him.

(Verses 6 & 7 omitted from reprint)

8. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. .

All shall worship the false-Christ except those whose names are written in the book of life.  Refer to Ephesians 1:4.  Your name was in that book when the very first foundation of this world was laid. Long before this age, you were chosen, not by accident, but ‘because you stood with God in a previous time. You earned the right to have God’s mark in your mind and your name written in that book and to serve him.

9. If any man have an ear let him hear.

10. He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.  Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

He is warning the saints to be patient and to refrain from engaging in violent actions that will result in violent reactions.

11.     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.

The first beast was a political beast.  This one, however, is an ecclesiastical beastNote, he is described as, “coming up out of the earth.” His abode is in the pit. So, we see that he would have people think that he was the lamb slain, but not so.  He is Lucifer, old Satan himself, come to deceive even the elect, if possible.

12. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship ‘the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

God’s pattern of government for Israel was a theocracy.  A theocracy that combined the ecclesiastical and political functions under one head, Yahweh.  This beast will counterfeit God’s government by combining the political beast with the ecclesiastical beast.

13. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth the sight of men.

Let me emphasize that this happens on earth in the sight of men.

14. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; 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.

15. 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. ‘

We see a similarity to Nebuchadnezzar’s edict to worship the golden image in Daniel 3. Death is threatened for failure to worship the image, but God will protect the elect the same as He did Shadrach, Meshach, and AbednegoThose who have the seal of God in their foreheads cannot be harmed by the beast.

16. And he that causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and  bond, to receive a mark in their right  hand, or in their foreheads:

Notice that it says in and not on. The mark is in the forehead, designating belief in the false-Christ, or in the hand, denoting service to the false-Christ.

17. 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.

Look for economic reprisals for those who refuse to worship the beast.

18. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man and his number is six hundred threescore and six.

“Here is wisdom.” You are the wise, so he expects you to understand that it is the number of a man.  You can expect a man, just as Jesus Christ was a man.  And he will be on this earth.  Not only his system but he himself.  The false-Christ!  Now let us analyze the last two verses ‘ in depth. Take the word “mark” in the 17th verse.  We see these words in Genesis 4:15 “And the Lord said unto him, Therefore whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.  And the Lord set a mark upon Cain, lest any finding him should kill him.”  In other words this mark was placed upon Cain and his descendants who are the physical offspring of Satan.  This mark, which we are to be alert for, was placed on them, not in the last days, but in the very beginning in the garden, pinpointing the time of its origin.  Now we realize that the Kenites, the Sons of Cain, and Cain himself had the mark at the beginning.  Let’s consider what type of person we are involved with here.  The word “man” means a “certain man”.  Isaiah 14:12-17 tells us better what type of man we are speaking of.  “Ground” in Hebrew is erets (776) which means the earth. He aspired to be the head of the nations and also to be “like the Most High”.  He says that he will be like God, yet, he will be brought down to the pit for all to ask, “Is this the man,” which in Hebrew is “Ish,” that did this to us, that destroyed cities and the nations?  Let’s get down to a deeper study on the word “count”.

The word “count” as it is used to count his number is used only in this place in the entire Bible.  It is the Greek word #5585, psephizo, meaning, “to use pebbles in enumeration”. If it sounds familiar, it is because it comes from the base word #5586, psephos, meaning, “a pebble as worn smooth by handling while counting for a long period of time”.   This is the “white stone” which is the hidden manna, or hidden truth that only the elect can learn.  Satan is called “Tyrus” in Ezekiel 28:2Tyrus in Hebrew means “Rock”Deuteronomy 32:31 states, “For their rock is not as our Rock”.  Verse four of this chapter states, God is our Rock”. It leaves no doubt that the Kenites’ rock is Satan.  Satan is their rock.  His children are the stones or pebbles.

We see now why the word “count with pebbles” is used.  Take care, for where the children (pebbles) are, their father shall appear.  What is his number that you are to count?  ‘ You are told that it is the number “666”. But this is only part of his number.  His full number is the Greek word #5516, XES (chi xi stigma). The twenty second, fourteenth and an “obsolete” letter #4742, (as a cross) of the Greek alphabet, used as numbers, denote respectively 600, 60 and 6, or 666 as a numeral.  There it is, yet you are not told about the so-called obsolete letter #4742, stigma, which means a “mark’ incised for recognition of ownership, a scar of service”.  Why is this information withheld from you? The reason is that it would identify the mark of Cain and his children (Kenites) which was placed there by Yahweh in Genesis. 4:15.  Without this knowledge you would not be aware of the message contained in Revelation – 2:9 ‘which says, “…them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are of the synagogue of Satan”. They claim to be God’s chosen people and that their Messiah (rock), will soon return.  If you believe them, you will worship the false-Christ.  Remember, the stones were worn smooth from counting a long period of time from Genesis to Revelation.

Who is “666 stigma”? 11 Thessalonians 2:3-4 says, That man of sin. The son of perdition; who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he, as God, sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God”.  That temple is at Jerusalem, will you worship him?

Rapture Theory

With just a little research at your local library you can easily trace the origin of the Rapture theory to Glasgow, Scotland, to the year 1830 when Margaret MacDonald, a mentally ill woman, had a vision whereby the Lord descends in the clouds and calls His saints to rise up and meet Him in the air.

The Pre-trib theory is the most prevalent and states that Christ returns before the tribulation of Antichrist and “takes away” His church.

I suppose what is most amazing about the Rapture theory is that the Bible is not unclear at all about when Jesus Christ returns. He returns at the seventh trump, the last trump, after Antichrist has been standing in Jerusalem claiming he is God.

2 Thes. 2:1
Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto Him,

The subject is “the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and our gathering unto Him”.

2 Thess:[2] That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Paul is saying “don’t be confused about when Christ returns, whether someone tells you to believe their ‘version’ or some Bible thumper twists chapter 4 verses 16-17 of my first letter to you, 1st Thessalonians.”

2 Thess:[3] Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

2 Thess:[4] Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
