Today, we bring this discussion to a close. Hopefully, I will have laid out the pieces of the puzzle in such a way that you can decide for yourself who the Beast Rider is – and, by process of elimination, who The Beast is.
Yesterday we saw her relationship with the kings of this world, as well as her direct relationship with the inhabitants of the Earth. Today we will talk about her relationship with The Beast and her appearance.
By the way, of the three theories that we are examining, remember that what is not a part of the Great Whore, is actually a part of The Beast.
This Beast Rider has a certain relationship with the world that identifies her. She commits fornication with the kings of the Earth. The people of the Earth drink the wine of her fornication. She sits on the Beast which is full of the names of blasphemy. She is beautiful and wears luxurious clothing and jewelry. And, she carries a golden cup that is full of abominations and filthiness.
The Beast that the woman rides is first mentioned in Revelation 11:7, but only briefly. The Beast is then discussed in detail in Chapter 13 – but, not the Beast Rider. It is only in Chapter 17 that we see the Great Whore, who sits on many waters.
As we move ever deeper into the Last Days, the identity of the major players mentioned in the prophecies of these Last Days become ever more important. The world is going to suffer at the hands of those players, and we want to be ready when they come on the scene.
There’s a certain rhythm to the Universe. And, each part of the Universe has its own distinct tempo. Each pulse and pattern rumbles and beats according to a cadence set by our Great Composer.
We see it everywhere, yet we often fail to see it in ourselves and in the mass of people that we call civilization. So, when Martin Armstrong, Nikolai Kondratiev, or Raymond Wheeler demonstrate that there is a cycle to human existence, we scoff at the idea.
Because it demonstrates a severe limitation to freewill, and we don’t like that – which is completely understandable, although foolish.
Many have come to me and talked about how closely the Economic Confidence Model (ECM) correlates with what Jonathan Cahn says about the year of Shemitah. Also, both ‘models’ indicate that there will be economic fireworks after the Summer of 2015.
Curiouser and curiouser.
So, I thought that I would add my own two-cents to this issue, and tell you what I think about this correlation. And yes, I DO admit that there is a correlation. But, it’s probably NOT the correlation that you think.
Also, please be careful. Judaism and Christianity do not mix. Consulting Talmud about such questions is wrong.
A financial doomsday is bad. Losing your wealth and your livelihood is not something that ANYONE wants to experience.
But, a doomsday for war?
That is far, far worse. A financial collapse would cause hardship, but a war is a far greater threat – especially since our enemies have nuclear weapons. Given the choice, most of us will choose hardship over death.
Of course, we aren’t being given the choice, we are going have a war, AND a financial collapse. And, in the same way that there is a cycle for financial collapse, there is a cycle for war.
I know. I know. It sounds crazy to think that something like the Economic Confidence Model (ECM) could be so accurate. But, it really does appear to be all THAT (and a bag of chips).
The only problem is that we tend to ignore what we do not understand. If something doesn’t make sense, it doesn’t exist to us, until we understand it.
So, let me give you a look a the really solid ideas that are the basis for the ECM, as well as giving you an example of someone discovering a principle at work – before another someone came along and gave us the HOW.
Ultimately, it doesn’t really matter how it works. What matters is that you take steps to get out of the way of what is coming.
History runs in cycles. Life runs in cycles. Investments have cycles. Everything, in fact, runs according to some form of cycle. Anyone who says otherwise is a fool.
In fact, fools have done an incredible amount of damage to investors by loudly proclaiming the end of cycles. There’s always some idiot proclaiming that stocks will keep going up, just before they crash. And, once they crash, the same idiot will often be heard saying that they will never go up.
You might say that there is a cycle to idiocy, too.
Well, there’s yet another cycle that you must pay particular attention to:
