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. 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 (Revelation 13:11-12).
As we saw in the Identifying the Second Beast, France (the nation that terminated the first beast’s power and influence) made a dominant and significant gesture in recognizing America (the new nation that had avowed to keep church and state apart). The Constitution of the new States gave complete freedom of worship to its citizens:
Congress shall make no laws respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof…no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States…i

The USA aptly fits the description given to the lamblike, two-horned beast of Revelation 13:11. It starts off like a lamb and later speaks like a dragon.
Hordes of persecuted Christians fled from the terrors and trials of the European oppression, seeking freedom and a better life in North America. However, the USA has become more militant over recent years. Revelation 13:12 warns us that this beast would exercise all the power of the first beast before him.
The two horns represent church and state, which will unite in the last days to persecute God’s people. Verse 12 continues by warning us that the USA will cause all who dwell on the earth to worship the Papacy (the first beast), which can only be achieved by enforcing papal doctrines.
This means that papal doctrines will be legislated. For this to happen, the US Constitution will have to be ignored or further amended, since it presently forbids the legislation of religious laws. Unless the Constitution is suspended, popular feeling must be swayed in order to permit such laws.
America is rapidly becoming a global policeman, getting involved in all parts of the world in the name of freedom and justice. With the fall of the Soviet Union there is no other power that has the resources to fill this role, and by its own admission, the United States is the only superpower left on Earth.

Super Power

By: L.C. Thomas

Nostradamus in his Epistle to King Henry the second above is describing the same group of conspirators that L.C. Thomas wrote about in regards to The Eighth Chapter of Daniel. Their plot to take control of the world is also foretold in Revelation 17:10-13. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space. The king to come at the time the book of Revelation was written is called Gallic Ogmios in the writings of Nostradamus. Gallic Ogmios is an internationally known politician of European descent that Nostradamus also calls the blue leader in quatrain C2 Q2.

And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition. Revelation 17:11 is saying two things. First, the Antichrist will will rise from the seventh Empire nation in a sequence of empire nations that began with ancient Assyria. The other empire nations in the sequence are Egypt, Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome. The eighth empire nation in this sequence consists of the other seven nations just mentioned, and it is from this political platform that the Antichrist will rise to dominate what is left of the world, after he destroys much of it in the final phase of his rise to power.

More important is reason number two, because verse eleven is identifying nation number seven as a member of the G-7 industrialized nations of the west that recently admitted Russia as an eighth and honorary member of their group. The Antichrist, who was born in a western nation descended from this sequence is then of the seven by birthright, because he came up among the ten horns of Daniel 7:8 as another, which means he is a descended of them.

The ten horns were also referred to by Daniel as the realm of Greece, because it keeps on evolving, first into the Roman Empire, and then into Mystery Babylon The Great, which is nation number seven of Revelation’s sequence. Greece and Rome were both democratic republics rather than monarchies so I believe that Mystery Babylon will use the same form of government, as will the eighth kingdom built by the Antichrist “in the image of them.” This was foretold by the feet of the image in Daniel 2:33, which I will explain further in a minute, but first I want to make this point. The realm of Greece extends into Russia too, because the Russian Czars were descended from the same royal bloodline that ruled in Europe. The nations of eastern Europe were all annexed by the Soviet Union after World War II, which further mingled the realm of Greece with eastern countries like Russia.

And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. The Antichrist uses his political arm, who plots with the ten horns of Revelation and Daniel to take control of the world. One hour is equal to a twenty-eight year span of time in which World War III will begin and then end on that great day of God Almighty in Revelation 16:16. The ten horns are political power brokers that have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

They do that by conspiring with the Antichrist to overthrow the governments of the Western world. They will elect him leader of the United Nations after using a little known legal tactic called Martial Law. Martial Law was designed to be used by the elected leaders of NATO during such emergencies as nuclear war. Nuclear war or some other form of chaos will be achieved by stirring up the nations of Islam. The military might of NATO could then be used to defend the world against Islamic terrorists, which is why Nostradamus refers to the ten horns of the Bible as the recently elevated guilty ones.

The one thing L.C. Thomas has tried to reveal, above all else, on the website,
is that what is taking place right now in front of the eyes of the whole world, is the single greatest deception in history. If for no other reason, because of the sheer number of people that are being duped all at once. The most disheartening thing about this is, that most have yet to read or hear anything that would lead me to believe that anyone on the planet has a clue as to what is taking place. For instance, I’ve heard many Bible scholars say that there is nothing said about the United States in the prophecies concerning the end times. They are all of the opinion that Russia, after forming an alliance with Islam, will march against Israel to be turned back by a Western alliance and then return allied with the Chinese to fight the Battle of Armageddon.

That just isn’t so because World War III and the Battle of Armageddon are two different wars. Something else the world doesn’t realize is that Vladimir Putin is one of the ten horns mentioned in the book of Revelation, which is why Russia recently allied itself with the seven industrialized nations of the West to form what is known as The Eight. This means that Russia’s purpose is the same as that of the Antichrist. He wants to gain control of the world’s oil supply and thus power, but chances are that China isn’t going to let that happen unless they are in on the deal.

If you are among the many who think that Russia is the land of Magog in Ezekiel 39:6, you’re probably wrong as well. Europe is more likely the land of Magog. What should really be of worry is what Ezekiel 28:3 says about the leader of the ten horns. Behold, you are wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from you. If this verse doesn’t alarm when read, it should. Because God is describing an intellect in this verse that mankind, in all its arrogant wisdom, doesn’t comprehend. Ezekiel is saying that the Antichrist is Satan in the flesh and that he is wise even beyond the abilities of Daniel the prophet. Satan had not yet been so clearly delineated in black and white terms, back in the day. Referred to as the wily Serpant or Accusor, his maleficense had not been completely revealed or recognizeably identified yet for what it was and is to the Hebrews, Isrealites and Jews of old testament and Torah. Many contemporary decendance of whom do not believe in the existence of such a being.

With that said, Daniel 7:5 describes the same sequence of nations that John describes in Revelation seventeen. And behold another beast, a second, like unto a bear, and it raised itself up on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said this to it, Arise, devour much flesh. The three ribs between the teeth of the bear in this verse are from the Middle East. Daniel 7:8 describes them as three horns. I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.

The first thing to take note of in verse five is that the bear is beast number two. The first beast is a lion with eagle’s wings described in verse four. All predetors. Many Bible scholars consider the winged lion to be ancient Babylon, but it is likely not. The lion is from ancient Egypt and the great Sphinx is a monument to it. The man who becomes the Antichrist is just a continuation of this lion, because after the wings are removed from it, it transforms into Satan pretending to be a man. The wings represent the Antichrist’s allegiance to the land of his birth, which he will discard before taking over the world. Babylon is his religion. Daniel 7:4 is specifically telling us that the wings never belonged to the lion. They belong to an eagle because they are eagle’s wings. After taking off those wings the Antichrist and the European leopard will tell the Russian bear to Arise and devour much flesh.

It is after the bear rises up to do what it was told in verse five that the kingdom of the Antichrist forms in verse six. His kingdom is described as a leopard with four wings of a fowl. This leopard is then described as having four heads; and dominion was given to it. The four heads on the leopard are all that remains at this point in time of the seven nations described in Revelation 17:11. The first three nations of this sequence are the ribs between the teeth of the bear that was told, Arise, devour much flesh. They of Daniel 7:5 are from the European Union and Russia. The ribs between the teeth of the bear are the people of Islam who made up the first three horns or empires in the sequence of nations given in Revelation chapter seventeen. They are Assyria, Persia and Babylon. Today we know them as Syria, Iran and Iraq, there abouts. They will be plucked up by the roots in Daniel 7:8, or brought to the point of extinction, uprooted.

Daniel 7:7 tells us how what some interpretors surmise might possibly be the Muslim people, the Ottoman Empire establushed by Mustafa Kemal AtaTurk, who would be destroyed. “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and break in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. The fourth beast is an alliance of nations within the United Nations and the Vatican that may or may not include America. America matching the description of coming in like a lamb. If it does, it will be in a weakened state because you were the eagle’s wings removed by the Antichrist as his kingdom began to form. Unknown to you he is secretly allied with the conspirators of Revelation chapter seventeen and he is descended from a bloodline rooted in the Merovingian dynasty of ancient Europe. Europe is described as a leopard, which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl; the beast had also four heads; and dominion was given to it. Leopards represent heraldry or the science of genealogies and the four wings of a fowl on the leopard’s back is referring to Daniel 2:33, which I will now expand on.

The trail of clues that solve the Mystery of the images described by Daniel in chapter seven are as follows. The leopard alludes to the royal bloodline that once ruled over Europe and Russia. In 1914 at the beginning of World War I there were only four countries in Europe that were not ruled by a monarch. France still had a living sovereign but made the transition to a democratic republic shortly after the United States broke away from England. By the end of World War I all of these monarchies except England collapsed in an incident that came to be called, The Fall of the Eagles. It began in 1917 with the fall of the Romanov’s in Russia, and by 1918 the ancient monarchies of Central Europe, the home of the Merovingian dynasty had been eliminated.

In my opinion, the four wings of a fowl on the leopard’s back are the democracies of Europe that once used an eagle to symbolize their monarchies. The changing of these nations from monarchy to democratic republic is what the feet of the image in Daniel 2:33 represent. The feet of the image is a mixture of iron and clay. This mixture represents a democratic government of the people, who have been fooled into thinking that they rule themselves. The reality is, the same royal families that ruled the world in ancient times still rule it today. They just hire political leaders to use as front men now, and they call the shots through them from behind the scenes. These former monarchies will reunite one last time in the form of the European Union, and with the help of Russia, they will attempt to bring down the greatest eagle to ever exist on the planet, the United States of America. Below are just a few examples of the common symbols used by the former monarchies of Europe and Russia.

England France Germany Russia

The conspirators revealed by Revelation chapter seventeen know that they can’t take control of the world as long as the United States remains the only superpower in it. That’s why they are secretly allied with the Russian bear. They will use Russian nuclear bombs to knock the United States off its throne by destroying our money markets along with New York City in Revelation 17:16-18. And the ten horns which you saw upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, (which is the home of the Statue of Liberty) and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall burn her with fire. For God has put in their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which you saw is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth. New York City is the current headquarters of the United Nations making it that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.

In Revelation 18:4, New York City is identified again when a voice says, Come out of her, my people, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues. The highest concentration of Jews in the world is not in Israel, but rather here in the United States. The highest concentration of Jews living here in the United States is you guessed it, in New York City. So if God is calling for His chosen people to come out of Mystery Babylon The Great, then this verse is strongly suggesting that the whore of Revelation 17:16 is New York City.

Revelation 18:15-19 suggests New York as well, because the merchants of world were made rich by this great city. Every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea. This verse suggests that Mystery Babylon The Great is a city by the ocean, which is verified by the French seer Nostradamus in C9 Q48. The great city on the maritime ocean, Surrounded by a crystalline swamp: In the winter solstice and the spring, It will be tried by a frightful wind. If you have ever watched movie footage of a nuclear blast it gives a whole new meaning to frightful wind. The skyscrapers of New York City resemble a crystalline or glass swamp around the harbor of New York City.

The sky will burn at forty-five degrees latitude, Fire approaches the great new city: Immediately a huge scattered flame leaps up, When they want to have verification from the Normans, Nostradamus, C6 Q97. Without question Nostradamus is referring to New York City in this quatrain because it sits close to forty-five degrees latitude. Line two of the quatrain verifies that an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile will be fired at and hit the great new city in line three. Line four suggests we are talking about a Russian missile, because the Normans are just north of New York City in French Quebec, Canada. We will want verification from the Normans that a missile has been detected by satellite because part of the early warning system in our old radar defense grid was installed in the northern most part of Canada during the Cold War. A missile flying over the North Pole from Russia headed toward the United States can get here much faster than one flying parallel to the Equator, which is considered to be the long way around. This is all part of the Mutually Assured Destruction plan devised by both sides during the Cold War.

If you live in New York City, please take my advice and leave while you still can. As for the rest of us, our losses will be great. The survival of the country will depend on the choices we make once this war begins. For the first time in history American lives will be lost in a battle within our own borders. If we do find a way to survive America, my advice is to cut your losses and let the Antichrist and ten horns have the rest of the world. If we follow them into the Middle East, then this country will face the full wrath of God right along with them. “For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty…into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.” Revelation 16:14-15.
