This video is #32 in a numbered series, and part of an in-depth teaching in understanding the spiritual language of the Bible.
All prophecies for the end times are written in parables. In the book of Revelation, we see the last seven year covenant prophesied in Daniel 9:27. This covenant is portrayed by a Dragon Beast, then a Beast from the Sea .
Each Beast rules for 3.5 years (42 months, 1.260 days, or time, times and half a times, all the same measurement of time).
First the Dragon Beast rules in (Rev. 12), then the Beast from the Sea in (Rev. 13)
The Book of Revelation is a revealing in the spirit, not in the letter, the letter or natural language covers the reality of end time events. The Spirit of Prophecy unveils what will take place shortly in the future.
1 Corinthians 2:13 "which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words."
Beasts are merely representing world nations, their leaders and powerful principalities over them, driving humanity to God's Divine will and eternal plan for all mankind. Although the book of Revelation is a revealing by its very name, one must carefully assign Biblical definitions and spiritual thoughts to each symbol we see in the visions given to us by John the Apostle. Then a Spirit filled follower of Christ can read the text straight forward.
Put simply, It takes a translation of the symbols (spirit words) before an interpretation can be accomplished.
This standard for translating parables first, then interpreting them is taught in the Gospels by Jesus. All followers of Christ Jesus should understand His way of unveiling the parables.
If the Lord's straight forward method is new to you, I suggest taking the teaching series from the beginning, starting at Video #1 Titled: "Unlocking Bible Parables, Mysteries of the Kingdom Revealed."
Found in the Playlist titled: "Understanding the Spiritual Language of the Bible."
Then the Playlist "Epic Parables" follows, all are in numbered order.
My the Lord Jesus shine His light of knowledge upon you through the scriptures, where He teaches His apostles His standard translation method for unlocking all parables, revealing the interpretation Jesus intended for all His disciples to receive.
I pray this teaching create a strong shield of faith for anyone listening, for great delusion is upon the earth today, and it will only get darker and more deceptive as we go forward towards the final days.
Jesus give my brothers and sisters eyes to see and ears to hear (understand) what your Holy Spirit is saying to your disciples. Jesus alone is the only One able to equip us for the end time tribulation and strong delusion He is allowing to test His people and the Earth. Look to Jesus as your strong tower, your deliverer, your Rock and foundation of your spiritual house, the storms, wind and waves will come, yet all those who build their house upon Jesus will be made to stand.
