The first and second beasts of Revelation 13 are proclaiming peace and safety on May 13-14 in a bid to make the world better than before the coronavirus pandemic. “Better for whom?” one might ask!
With Pompeo’s visit to Israel to push Trump’s peace plan forward and the pope’s gathering of religious leaders for a day of prayer for safety from the coronavirus, both aspects of Paul’s warning are covered.
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3)
Pompeo, representing the second beast of Revelation 13, is promoting the controversial annexation of the West Bank as part of the peace deal and scheduled his talk a day ahead of the formation of Israel’s new unity government—just in time for them to give close attention to implementing the annexation plan.
Meanwhile, the pope, representing the first beast, has welcomed a global day of prayer—regardless of what god is being prayed to—for safeguarding the world to make it a better place after the pandemic.
Each one, from wherever they are and according to the teachings of their religion, faith, or sect, should implore God to lift this pandemic off us and the entire world, to rescue us all from this adversity.
The two events may seem to be completely disparate and unrelated, but the relation becomes clear when you understand that this day of prayer was proposed by the Higher Committee of Human Fraternity, whose purpose it is “to share the message of the Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together”, which the pope signed in the first ever papal trip to the Arabian Peninsula in February 2019, where he said, through the meeting’s motto, “Make Me A Channel of Your Peace”. Now the world’s religious leaders are virtually gathering for prayer on the very day that Israel is finally ready, after their prolonged election chaos, to move forward with the peace deal. Coincidence?
What is more, the petition makes a point to show their purpose that the world should not just be restored to normal but become a better place after the pandemic is over. The question is how becoming better might be interpreted in light of one’s own religious faith. Perhaps one’s faith teaches that following the Georgia Guidestones is how to make the world better!? For adherents to such a faith as is described there, the world is indeed better with the controls left in place that have been established on account of the pandemic! It is like the phoenix rising from the ashes of the pre-pandemic world.
On a broad scale, the call for peace and security could be said to have begun in 2016—a special year with regard to the plan of redemption, when Pope Francis initiated a similar (but physical) gathering of religious leaders for a prayer for peace. As we said at that time, peace through tolerance of sin is a fundamentally flawed concept, because it is not peace with God, but a superficial peace with the rebels who are united against His government! Shortly thereafter, the sacrificial character of God’s government was demonstrated by His watching ones that initiated a delay to allow time for the harvest of souls for God to mature. And now is the call for safety against the Crown—not so much the virus, but the crowned King, who is gaining the upper hand in the Battle of Coronageddon.
On whatever scale one considers, the next step is clearly stated by the Bible: “sudden destruction”. Are you prepared for that outcome? The peace of the world is no more genuine than the power-hungry leaders who promote it, led by the father of lies himself. We can trust the words of Jesus that with the kingdom of Satan dividing, it will also fall.
And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: (Matthew 12:25)
By contrast, the Lord gives us a different kind of peace that can keep us secure even in troublous times.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. (John 14:27)
