Most British seem to be

Europe's regional plan

headlines and article read:

“Today, Europe's bureaucrats launch a master-plan to destroy the United
Kingdom. Soon there may no longer be a 'British' people left to care!”

in Britain. A few yawn-inducing headlines in local papers might

agencies' start work. What few will realize
the final move in the piercing together of
one of the most ambitious political projects of our time, designed to change
the United Kingdom so dramatically
it will soon be scarcely recognizable.
The master plan is to carve up the UK into

to bring Britain into line with the EU's vision of 'Europe of the Regions.'

the 12 regions which are now to have their own assemblies.
The thinking behind this vision is that, as a future United States of Europe
takes shape, its member states will share a common political structure,

the feet and toes which were partly of potters clay and partly of
iron, this is a divided kingdom; it will have some of the strength of the
iron in it, even as you saw the iron mixed with common clay ...
“And as for the toes of the feet which were partly of iron and
partly of clay; some of the kingdom will be strong and part of it will be
fragile. In the time of those kings, the God of the heavens will set up a
kingdom that will never be destroyed - a kingdom that will not be left to
another people. It will crush all these kingdoms and bring them to an end,
but it will itself endure for ever."
/ DANIEL 7:13-14:
"In the night visions, I kept looking, and then there was One like the Son
of Man, coming in the clouds of heaven. He came up to the Ancient of Days
and was presented before Him. Then He was given authority, glory and a
kingdom, that all the peoples, nations, and men of every language
should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass
away, and His kingdom is one that will never be destroyed."

PROPHECY / DANIEL 7:7-9, 23-25:
"There was a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely
strong; and it had huge iron teeth ... and it had ten horns. I was thinking
about the horns, and then, another horn,
little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were plucked
the roots before it; and there and then, in this horn were
eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things.
"I kept looking until thrones were set
and the Ancient of Days was seated ... The fourth beast will be a fourth
kingdom that will appear on the earth. It will be different from all the
kingdoms, and will devour the whole earth, treading it down and crushing it.

this kingdom. After them another king will arise. He will be

From out of the ten horns arises
- a man, a ruler who becomes
great and subdues the other kings. He has great power of persuasion, but

the world in fierce power, for 3½ years.
THE BEAST OF REVELATION
PROPHECY / REVELATION 13:1-5:
"And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and
seven heads, and on his horns were ten crowns, and on his heads were
blasphemous names ... And the dragon gave the beast his power and his throne
and great authority. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the
beast... and they worshipped the beast ... There was given to him a mouth
speaking arrogant words and blasphemies."
The apostle John
This Beast with seven heads and ten horns certainly sounds like the
ten-horned beast of Daniel 7. Yes, indeed, the two beasts - of Daniel and
Revelation - are related. But there is one difference - the Revelation beast
This same Beast appears also in Revelation 17 where an added feature is a
"woman" sitting on the Beast, and where an explanation of the seven heads is
given. There's quite a riddle in these verses. I'll explain, but first read
PROPHECY/Rev 17:3-5, 7, 9-10, 12-13:
"I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of
blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was
arrayed in purple and scarlet, and glittered with gold, precious stones and
pearls; and in her hand she had a golden cup full of
abominable, repulsive things and the filth of her immorality; and on
her forehead there was inscribed a name with a mysterious
BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE
... And the messenger said to me, 'Why do you wonder? I will tell you the
meaning o/the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her,
which has the seven heads and the ten horns ... Here is the mind that has
"The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, and they are
five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he
must remain a little while. The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not
yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as
kings along with the beast. They will have one purpose and will give their
power and authority to the beast'."
is symbolic of a false religious system that had its beginning in the
original Babylon - the tower of Babel. It was a religion opposed to the
truth of Yahweh, the Almighty God. She has been riding over the nations for
more than 4,000 years, and she will be associated with the Beast Kingdom,
and will be manifest as a
world united religion
in the endtimes.
The "seven heads" of the beast are two things, according to the passage
above. Firstly they are
These may be identified as the seven hills of Rome. Secondly, they are
(empires) that have supported Mystery Babylon, the counterfeit religion,
down through the centuries. The first six heads are the ancient empires,
beginning with the first kingdom after the Great Flood. Notice the riddle
says, five have fallen, one is, and one is to come. At the time John was
writing the Revelation, five empires had already fallen; the existent empire
was Rome, and the seventh empire was still future. So we can identify the
Existent in John's time.
Will exist in the endtimes.
The revived Roman Empire will consist of 10 nations (the ten toes of Daniel
2, and the ten horns of Daniel 7), which surrender their national
sovereignties to the Beast, so that he has full control over them. This
10-nation confederation then wages war and annihilates many as we see in yet
another prophecy concerning the Antichrist. . .

But why is man so wicked? Has he always been evil? Is he more wicked now
than long ago?
No, man has not always been evil. Man was created perfect. And even Satan,
the devil, was not evil at the beginning. Yes, Satan is real; he is a very
intelligent being. You might call him "the force of evil," but he is not
eternal; he is a created spiritual being. He was a beautiful angel. In
Hebrew his name was Helel which means "shining one." He is commonly
referred to as Lucifer, and the Bible has given him the names, Satan, the
devil, the destroyer, the evil one, and "the god of this age."
His fall from an archangel to a demon occurred when he gave way to an evil
thought that germinated in his mind. It is recorded in the book of Isaiah:
"How you have fallen from heaven, O Helel (shining one, Lucifer), son
of the dawn! You have been cut down to the ground - you who have ruined the
nations - you who said in your heart, 'I will ascend into the highest
heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit
enthroned on the mount of assembly on the utmost heights of the north. I
will ascend higher than the clouds; I will be like the Most High.' But you
are thrust down to Sheol, to the lowest depths of the pit."
It is this same evil one who has brought mankind into the bondage of evil,
and thrown him into a cesspit of corruption.
"And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing -
the unbelieving, whose minds the god of this age has blinded so that they
might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Messiah, who is the
image of God." (2
Of course, the
world is not a cesspit of corruption. And that's because of the Gospel, the
good news of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, has delivered countless millions of
people from sin and evil, and made them "the salt of the earth." (Matthew

It is because of the
Gospel and the redemptive work of the Messiah at Calvary, that there is
still righteousness, love, justice, and goodness on the earth, and that the
nations have not totally sunk to the depths of depravity.
But there is a battle going on, in every nation - the battle of Evil against
Godliness. At times it looks like Evil is going to win. But no! I've read
the Prophets and the Revelation, dear friend, and it's Yahweh, the Lord God
Almighty, who wins!

2:4 which we have quoted on page 1, will be fulfilled before too long. And

This is speaking of the Messiah's Millennium - the 1,000 years of
righteousness that begin after He returns to bring restoration to this
corrupt and polluted planet. And after the 1,000 years? Peter explains:
"In keeping with His promise, we are looking forward to
new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells."
(2 Peter 3:13)
Those who love darkness rather than light will, of course, not be too keen
to live in Messiah's Millennium, nor in the eternal realm of righteousness.
And of course, they won't!
But my question to you, my reader: On what side are you? Are you on the side
of Righteousness, or the side of Evil? On the side of God, or the side of
Satan? If you are not sure on which side you stand, then why don't you call
upon the LORD God and

the genetically-engineered corn is killing the orange-and-black butterflies,
it might be killing other insects and doing other unseen damage to the food
chain. "The UK's contribution to genetic research has been out of all
proportion to its size, and it is well placed to capitalize on such
advances," said a report by the select committee on science and technology.
Prince Charles confronted the Government when he spoke out against the
dangers of GM food recently; and British MPs have accused the Government of
allowing its key advisory committee on genetic modification to become
understaffed and exhausted, jeopardizing the quality of advice its produces.
The British Government has been urged to take a proper lead in the debate on
genetically-modified food and to try to pull it out of a morass of "scare
stories" and "misconceptions."
