“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.” Revelation 13:1,2.
Here is the beast that has the dreaded mark. This mark we definitely don’t want! The most awful warning of all time is directed against it (see Rev. 14:9,10). But before we learn what the mark is, we must discover who the beast is. And it won’t be hard. In fact, the Bible makes it so clear that I’ll simply list the characteristics of it and you’ll be able to tell me who it is! Are you ready?
1) A “beast” in prophecy represents a kingdom, a nation, a power. The prophetic book of Daniel tells us – ‘Thus he said, the fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth.” Daniel 7:23.
2) This beast comes up out of the “sea.” When a beast arises from the “sea,” it always represents a power rising in a highly populated area; amid “peoples, multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” Revelation 17:15. It would have to conquer the existing government.
3) This beast has seven heads and ten horns. A head represents the headquarters of a government. The head of a county is called the “county seat” you remember.
A “horn” represents a king, a ruler. “And ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise.” Daniel 7:24. The beast is a power with a man at the head of it. You’ll find that the Bible explains itself!
4) The beast has “the name of blasphemy’ (Rev. 13:1). What is blasphemy?
Again the Bible gives its own definition. In John 10:32,33, it tells how the Jews were going to stone Jesus. He asked them why they were about to stone Him and they said, “For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.”
Amazing! Blasphemy is for a man to claim to be God! Of .course Jesus didn’t blaspheme because He is God. But for someone less than God – it would be. But there’s more.
In Mark 2:5-11 it tells the story of how a paralyzed man wanted to come into a house where Jesus was, but it was just too crowded. He finally persuaded his friends to carry him up on the roof of Peter’s house and break it up so they could let the man down into the room where the Saviour was teaching.
Down he comes.
Jesus looks into those pleading eyes and knows that the poor man needs to have forgiveness and peace with God even more than physical healing. Jesus says to him, “Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.”
Can you imagine the wonderful peace and joy that flooded his soul? But the religious leaders didn’t care a thing about the man’s soul. They were just trying to catch some words of Jesus that they could use against Him to have Him put to death. The Bible says that they thought, “Why does this man thus speak blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God only?” The Saviour knew their thoughts and said, “Why reason ye these things in your hearts?” Then He asked them which is easier to say, “thy sins be forgiven,” or to say, “rise and walk?” Jesus healed the man before their eyes, and, to the people’s utter amazement, he got up and walked out of the house.
Again, Jesus didn’t commit blasphemy by forgiving the man’s sins because He is a member of the Godhead and had a perfect right to do just that, To whomever He pleased He could say those sweet words of forgiveness, and the very peace of heaven would flood the soul. He could say, “Go and sin no more,” and the guilty, the depressed, the sad, the empty, would rise up with peace of mind. They would begin a new and unselfish life of obedience to God – a happy life of peace.
They could slap Him in the face and press a crown of thorns onto that holy brow; they could beat Him until His back was like raw meat, but they couldn’t rob Him of His royal right to forgive the chief of sinners. Wonderful Jesus!
But for anyone less than God to claim to forgive sins – it’s blasphemy.
Concerning the beast it says, “and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.” Revelation 13:1. The very leaders of this power would both claim to be God on the earth, and claim to have power to forgive men’s sins!
5) “and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Revelation 13:2.
It’s clear that the beast gets its “seat” and “authority” from the dragon. But who’s the dragon?
Here it is. “And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.” Revelation 20:2. The dragon is Satan. But there’s more.
“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 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. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.” Revelation 12:3-5.
Some years ago, a man in Chicago claimed that he was the man child! Could he have been?
Revelation 19:15,16 shows us that the “Man Child” is Christ.
So the “dragon” represents not only Satan, but also a kingdom through whom Satan worked to try to kill baby Jesus as soon as He was born, Now what kingdom was it whose king decreed the destruction of the babies in Bethlehem?
Of course! It was King Herod. He was employed by, and a representative of Rome. So here’s another clue. The beast gets its power, seat, and authority from Rome!
It’s coming clear. The dragon represents Rome. Rome was the empire used by Satan to try to destroy the Saviour of the world! Now let’s take a closer look.
The dragon (Rome) had “ten horns.” A horn grows out of the head of an animal. A horn, you remember, is a king. When the Roman empire collapsed, ten divisions resulted. Barbarian tribes hammered at the Roman empire for many years until it fell apart and the ten divisions were ruled by ten kings! The were: the
Alemani (Germany), the Franks (France), Burgundians (Switzerland), the Suevi (Portugal), the Anglo-Saxons (Britain), the Visigoths (Spain), the Lombards (Italy), the Vandals, Ostrogoths, and Heruli. The last three were destroyed by the Pope of Rome because they refused to, become “Christian.” The armies of Emperor Justinian, in cooperation with the Pope, thrust the Ostrogoths out of the city of Rome. They have become extinct. In 538 A.D. the Pope took possession of the city after the Emperor decreed that he should be the head of all the Christian churches. These ten divisions of Rome are the ten horns on the “dragon.” (For more detail see Appendix 1).
Now look at this next amazing point.
6) “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.” Revelation 13:8.
This is not only a political power but a religious power as well. It demands worship and gets it.
7) It is a world-wide power. “All the world wondered after the beast.” Revelation 13:3.
Maybe you already know who the “beast” is.
Can you think of any world-wide political and religious power with a man at the head of it who claims to be God on earth and to be able to forgive sins? Who received its “seat” and authority from Rome? Of a church government whose leader is “wondered after” by the whole world?
Let me say something now that’s very important. You see, the reason why God speaks as strongly against worshiping the “beast” as He does is because He loves the people. He loves all people. Reader, He loves you. He knows that a person can’t possibly be happy who follows this power and receives its mark. He knows that “. . . they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Revelation 14:11. In following this power there’s no rest. He loves us so much that He warns us in the strongest language known to man. Listen to this,
“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice; If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation.” Revelation 14:9,10. Strong language. Language of love is always strong when it’s a question of life and death to the one it loves.
I ask you, what more could He do? God sent His own Son to die a hell death in our place, Not one need experience the awful fate of those who follow the beast and receive its mark. Jesus made a way of escape. He suffered the agony of Gethsemane, and the torture of His mock trial where they beat Him until His back was like raw meat. They bowed down in mockery and hit Him in the head with a
stick, driving the thorns into His brow and sending blood running down His face. Watch Him stagger on His way to Calvary. The Son of God falls on His face in the dirt. He endures the horror of our sins while His blood runs drop by drop to the foot of the cross. Look at His quivering lips as He cries “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?”
There He hangs – like a snake on a pole, writhing in agony, drinking the last drops of the wrath of God against sin. “As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,” Jesus was lifted up – for you. Do you see? He did it for you. He took what you and I deserve. Do you see why our Heavenly Father is so anxious that we not follow the beast or receive its mark? We need not receive that awful penalty. Jesus paid it all. When they were pounding the spikes through His tender flesh, and Jesus prayed “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” – He was praying for you and me then also. He was praying for you! Will you choose Him now as your personal Saviour and follow Him all the way?
You’ll be so happy that you did.
Trusting Him; obeying Him – even unto death; abiding in His love through prayer and Bible study; total surrender and a loving, happy relationship, only then will you be safe from worshiping the beast and receiving his “mark’ – only then. Soon you’ll see why.
Another thing we must understand is that in identifying the beast, God is not talking about sincere people who are involved with it “ignorantly.” Do you know what I mean? When He identifies it He is talking about “the system;” the leaders, who know what they are doing and deliberately disobey and change the word of
God. Do you see? Our God is a tender Father. He only holds accountable those who understand what the Bible commands and knowingly disobey, or, those who turn away from bearing His word and are “willingly ignorant.”
The beast exists now. Many honest Christians who are now involved with it will soon learn the facts about it, They will hear God’s call to come out of it. And they will respond. Don’t be fooled by thinking that the “beast” is a computer in Europe
somewhere. That is only a smoke screen to get people off the track that the Bible points out. God’s word makes it so clear that even an honest child can see it. The next point in identifying the beast is amazing.
8) It has characteristics of the four beasts (nations) which existed before it. Look carefully.
“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.” Revelation 13:2.
What nations are these? Again, the Bible tells us. The same four beasts are found in Daniel 7. ‘These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.” Daniel 7:17. These are the four world empires, ruling consecutively from the time of Daniel down to the time of the fall of Rome. They are Babylon (605 – 538 B.C.), Medo-Persia (538 – 331 B.C.), Greece (331 – 168 B.C.), and Rome (168 B.C. – 476 A.D.). Now let’s get the full description of these in Daniel 7.
“Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold,, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.
“The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man’s heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh. After this I beheld, and lo another,, like 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. 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 brake 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. 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.” Daniel 7:2-8.
What a picture. Here they are, beginning with Daniel’s day.
The Lion – Babylon,
The Bear – Medo-Persia,
The Leopard – Greece.
The Terrible Beast – Rome.
Since the beast with the mark has similarities of these four, let’s take a close look at them.
Babylon, represented by the two-winged lion, ruled the world when Daniel was alive. In the ruins of ancient Babylon, broken statues of lions with two wings can still be seen in modern times.
Revelation 13 talks about 2 beasts. This video will identify the 1st beast, the Beast that comes out of the water. …The lion – a fit symbol of Babylon. It was the greatest of all the ancient kingdoms. The two wings tell us of the swiftness in which the “golden kingdom” conquered the civilized world of that time.
How is the “beast” of Revelation 13 like Babylon?
Ancient Babylon, founded by Nimrod (See Genesis 10) the great-grandson of Noah, more than two thousand years before Christ, was one of the wonders of the world. It was laid out in a perfect square with a great and high wall eighty-seven feet thick. Its two hundred and twenty-five square miles of enclosed surface was laid out in beautiful symmetry and interspersed with luxuriant pleasure grounds and gardens. With its sixty miles of moat, its sixty miles of outer wall, its gates of solid brass, its hanging gardens, its subterranean tunnel under the River Euphrates, its perfect arrangement for beauty and defense – this city, containing in itself many things which were themselves wonders of the world, was itself another and still mightier wonder.
The emperors of Babylon claimed worship as gods. For man to be appreciated is great, but to be worshiped by other humans is blasphemous. The leader of the “beast” does this very thing.
666, The Number of the Beast
Rev 13:16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
Rev 13:17 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.
Rev 13:18 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.
Note that according to verse 17, there are three different characteristics that distinguish the beast:
- his mark (of authority)
- his name
- the number of his name (666).
It might be argued by some that 666 must be applied to one man’s name, and that this will then help identify him as the antichrist. I would offer the following verse to show that 666 need not apply solely to a man’s name:
Rev 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
The same Greek word translated as name (onoma: G3686) that appears in Revelation 13:17-18 is also used in chapter 19:16, so clearly the word can also apply to a title, and not just one man’s name. Now, we are told that it takes a certain understanding and wisdom to discern just how this number is actually applied. Based on the fact that 666 can apply to a title, below are several words and phrases that have been put forth over the centuries as probable solutions to the enigma of 666.
The Vicar of Christ (Vicarius Christi)
“Vicar of Christ . . . Title used almost exclusively of the Bishop of Rome as successor of Peter and, therefore, the one in the Church who particularly takes the place of Christ; but used also of bishops in general and even of priests. First used by the Roman Synod of A.D. 495 to refer to Pope Gelasius; more commonly in Roman curial usage to refer to the Bishop of Rome during the pontificate of Pope Eugene III (1145-1153). Pope Innocent III (1198-1216) asserted explicitly that the Pope is the Vicar of Christ; further defined at the Council of Florence in the Decree for the Greeks (1439) and Vatican Council I in Pastor Aerternus (1870). The Second Vatican Council, in Lumen Gentium , n.27, calls bishops in general “vicars and legates of Christ.” All bishops are vicars of Christ for their local churches in their ministerial functions as priest, prophet, and king, as the Pope is for the universal church; the title further denotes they exercise their authority in the Church not by delegation from any other person, but from Christ Himself.”
Source: Catholic Dictionary, Peter M.J. Stravinskas, Editor, published by Our Sunday Visitor, Inc., Huntington, 1993, pp. 484-485.
So the Papal title of VICAR OF CHRIST which in Latin is VICARIUS CHRISTI, means a SUBSTITUTE FOR CHRIST, which is synonymous with Antichrist, i.e., assuming the power of God on earth! This blasphemous claim is made repeatedly by various Popes and is the very foundation of Roman Catholicism and it’s Papacy.
The MAN of Sin
2 Thess 2:3 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 2:4 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, showing himself that he is God.
Scholars generally agree that the “man of sin” in 2 Thessalonians 2:3 is the same entity described in Revelation as the beast whose number is 666, the “little horn” power of Daniel 7, and the harlot riding the beast in Revelation 17. See the table in The Catholic Origins of Futurism and Preterism. To my knowledge, no Catholic or Protestant scholar has ever proposed that this “antichrist” entity could potentially be a woman. So who then is a likely candidate?
|V = 5||F = no value||D = 500|
|I = 1||I = 1||E = no value|
|C = 100||L = 50||I = 1|
|A = no value||I = 1||————-|
|R = no value||I = 1||501|
|I = 1||————–|
|U = 5||53|
|S = no value|
Add these together and the result will be 666.
The letters inscribed in the Pope’s mitre are these: Vicarius Filii Dei, which is the Latin for the Vicar of the Son of God. Catholics hold that the church which is a visible society must have a visible head.

“It has often been charged…that Catholicism is overlaid with many pagan incrustations. Catholicism is ready to accept that accusation – and even to make it her boast…The great god Pan is not really dead, he is baptized.” -Theodore Maynard, The Story of American Catholicism
Babylon is described in Revelation 17 as the mother of harlots (apostate religious systems or churches), Mystery and the abominations of the earth. Obviously if God’s people are the chaste woman faithful to her husband, then Babylon is the opposite of this symbol or that system of worship which is unfaithful to God, and has a mystery religion and teaches and practices abominations. The harlot daughters of Rome must represent those churches that follow her false teachings and thus subject themselves to her rule, or even worse, officially accept the Roman leadership as authoritative.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) repeatedly refers to the Catholic Church as “Holy Mother Church.” In September 2000 the Vatican issued a statement titled “Dominus Iesus,” where CardinalJoseph Ratzinger stated:
The Washington Post reported on this church decree:
“A new Vatican dictum issued today declares that individuals can attain full salvation from earthly sin only through the spiritual grace of the Catholic Church and that other faiths—including Protestant Christian ones—have defects that place their followers in a “gravely deficient situation” in seeking salvation. The goal, according to a top Vatican official, is to combat the “so-called theology of religious pluralism,” which suggests that Catholics are on a par in God’s eyes with, say, Jews, Muslims or Hindus.”
The word Vatican literally means Divining Serpent and is derived from Vatis=Diviner and Can=Serpent. Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica were built on the ancient pagan site called in Latinvaticanus mons or vaticanus collis, which means hill or mountain of prophecy. Coins minted in Vatican City often bear the inscription“CITTÁ DEL VATICANO”, which means City of Prophecy. The Church of Rome thus applies the title of “City” to its structure and as we shall see, lays claim to all the other attributes of Mystery Babylon as well. In the coin shown here, minted in 1963, Pope Paul VI is shown together with his title Pontifex Maximus and the inscription on the reverse side reads “CITTÁ DEL VATICANO.” The full title of the Vatican State is “STATO DELLA CITTÁ DEL VATICANO” which is the combination of Church and State. There is also a woman on the reverse side of the coin, and at her feet is her title, FIDES, which means faith. This woman is symbolic of the Roman Catholic faith, or Roman Catholic Church, which claims power over all governments on earth.
“The right hand has in all ages been deemed an emblem of fidelity and our ancient brethren worshipped Deity under the name ofFIDES or Fidelity, which was sometimes represented by TWO RIGHT HANDS JOINED, and sometimes by two human figures, holding each other by the right hands…..Numa was the first who erected an altar to FIDES, under which the GODDESS OF OATHS and honesty was worshipped. Obligations taken in her name were considered as more inviolable than others.” –Albert G. Mackey, The Encyclopedia of Freemasonry

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. –Revelation 12
Just as it was prophesied in Revelation 12, the pagan Roman Empire vigorously persecuted the Christians until the rule of Constantine I. Prior to the time of emperor Constantine’s so-called conversion, the Christians were persecuted because they would not honor the pagan gods. The Catholic Church was formed as a means to Christianize the pagan religion. The pagan gods were gradually replaced by saints of the church, the necessary religious sacraments were re-introduced as Christian ritual, the pagan holy days were reclassified as Christian holidays; the Saturnalia celebrations turned into Christmas celebrations; the ancient festival of the dead (Halloween) became All Souls Day;Lupercalia, the feast of the purification of Isis (the mother-child religion), became the Feast of the Nativity and so on.
“We are told by Eusebius, that Constantine, in order to recommed the new religion to the heathen, transferred into it the outward ornaments to which they had been accustomed in their own.” –John Henry Newman, Development of Christian Doctrine
“Christianity became the established religion in the Roman Empire and took the place of paganism…Christianity as it existed in the Dark Ages might be termed baptized paganism.”–Church History
When Pope Gregory the XIII introduced the solar Gregorian calendar in 1582, each day of the week was given a new name in honor of a deity. The first day of the week was named Sunday, The Lord’s Day, and the venerable day of the sun.
The observance of months was changed and the new months (moons) were renamed after the gods. The name for the month of February comes from the Latin februum which means purification. This month is reserved for purification ceremonies in honor of the goddess Isis.
“The LORD commanded me at that time to teach you statutes and judgments, that you might perform them in the land where you are going over to possess it. So watch yourselves carefully, since you did not see any form on the day the LORD spoke to you at Horeb from the midst of the fire, so that you do not act corruptly and make a graven image for yourselves in the form of any figure, the likeness of male or female, the likeness of any animal that is on the earth, the likeness of any winged bird that flies in the sky, the likeness of anything that creeps on the ground, the likeness of any fish that is in the water below the earth. And beware not to lift up your eyes to heaven and see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, and be drawn away and worship them and serve them, those which the LORD your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven. But the LORD has taken you and brought you out of the iron furnace, from Egypt, to be a people for His own possession, as today. –Deuteronomy 4
And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he said, Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. –Luke 11
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness! No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. –Matthew 6
Vatican City is the smallest sovereign state in the world (less than 110 acres) located within the city of Rome, Italy; governed by the Pope who acts (for a life term) as the supreme executive, legislative and judicial authority. The hub of the Catholic Church has its own army, bank, post office, market, electrical plant and much more within its city walls. The city has its own citizenship and has established embassies in countries all around the world, which means Vatican officials are granted diplomatic status in foreign countries.
It is no secret the Vatican possesses one of the world’s largest hoards of treasures; Catholic Churches all over the world are richly decorated with precious metals and jewels. Standing in the center of Saint Peter’s Square is an ancient Egyptian obelisk which was carefully transported from Heliopolis to Rome in 37 AD. The Vatican was built so the Pope faces east (toward the sun & the obelisk) whenever he addresses the crowd in St. Peter’s Square.
And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. –Matthew 8
Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, then My servants would be fighting so that I would not be handed over to the Jews; but as it is, My kingdom is not of this realm.” Therefore Pilate said to Him, “So You are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say correctly that I am a king For this I have been born, and for this I have come into the world, to testify to the truth Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” –John 18
The obelisk is not a solitary remnant of ancient paganism found at the Vatican. Take a close look at the bird’s-eye view of St. Peter’s Square. The star of Ishtar is clearly visible stretching across the entire square, but look more closely at the center and you will see the 4-pointed symbol of the sun god, orBaal. Inside St. Peter’s Cathedral stands a statue the church claims is a likeness of St. Peter, although the statue closely resembles the Roman deity Jupiter; hence the sun wheel on top of his head.
PS – Remember – God want you to know that you are infinitely valuable to Him. He needs you. You did not come into this world by accident. You are no mistake but you are here by Divine design and for a purpose that He has best suited for you and you alone to perform.. You are His first and best choice to do what He has design for you. God knew you before you were born, He knows all about you. You may not realize your value yet, but He does. He knows that you are worth every bit of the price that He paid for you. There is no way to convince Him otherwise..(taken from Wayne Anderson book – God’s DNA)
