End Time Truth: End Time Truth: IRAN..."Radical Islam Incarnate"

RAN..."Radical Islam Incarnate"

Revelation 13:5 "And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months."

With the news that Iran is developing an Islamic Internet, and French President and EU head Nicolas Sarkozy started the Mediterranean Union for mostly Islamic countries, we could be witnessing The Rising up of the Second Beast.

Daniel has already showed that the visions he saw came to pass as the Babylonian/Medo-Persian/Greek/Roman Empires.

John's Revelation sees a recycle of similar Empires after the "IMAGE" of these previous, according to Ecclesiastes 1:  
9 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
10 Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us

Revelation 13

 1And 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.
 2And 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.
 3And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
 4And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
 5And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
 6And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
 7And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
 8And 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.
 9If any man have an ear, let him hear.
 10He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

{ "Here we see the description of the first Beast is "like unto a leopard" which is like unto Daniels vision concerning Nebuchadnezzar's Kingdom and Reign in verse 2. In verse 11 we see that the Antichrist "two horns" is  causing the earth to worship the first Beast whose wound was healed. Keep in mind that "Beast"  is both Kingdom and King! We get into trouble interpreting this very symbolic vision without understanding the Bible's previous examples that give us the 'keys' to know how "Beast" is to be interpreted (and all other inanimate pictures like 'mountains etc,,) 

 11And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.
 12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

Daniel's Vision Interpreted

15 “As for me, Daniel, my spirit within me [2] was anxious, and the visions of my head alarmed me. 16 I approached one of those who stood there and asked him the truth concerning all this. So he told me and made known to me the interpretation of the things. 

17 ‘These four great beasts are four kings who shall arise out of the earth. 18 But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, forever and ever.’ { Here we see the Beasts are "Kings"...

19 “Then I desired to know the truth about the fourth beast, which was different from all the rest, exceedingly terrifying, with its teeth of iron and claws of bronze, and which devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet, 20 and about the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn that came up and before which three of them fell, the horn that had eyes and a mouth that spoke great things, and that seemed greater than its companions. 21 As I looked, this horn made war with the saints and prevailed over them, 22 until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given for the saints of the Most High, and the time came when the saints possessed the kingdom.

{Here we see Beast as kingdom!)
23 “Thus he said: ‘As for the fourth beast,
there shall be a fourth kingdom on earth,
which shall be different from all the kingdoms,
and it shall devour the whole earth,
and trample it down, and break it to pieces.
24 As for the ten horns,
out of this kingdom ten kings shall arise,
and another shall arise after them;
he shall be different from the former ones,
and shall put down three kings.
25 He shall speak words against the Most High,
and shall wear out the saints of the Most High,
and shall think to change the times and the law;
and they shall be given into his hand
for a time, times, and half a time.
26 But the court shall sit in judgment,
and his dominion shall be taken away,
to be consumed and destroyed to the end.
27 And the kingdom and the dominion
and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven
shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High;
their kingdom shall be an everlasting kingdom,
and all dominions shall serve and obey them.’ [3]
28 “Here is the end of the matter. As for me, Daniel, my thoughts greatly alarmed me, and my color changed, but I kept the matter in my heart.”

Now back to John's Revelation...we see this second Beast  looking like the "False Prophet" and his Kingdom. Looking at Islam, we can see that if Islam is the "False Prophet" it has aligned it'self with the "Beast" that had the "deadly wound"...A World Power Resurrected! And allowing Islamic Sharia Law to be official Religion? 

 13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
 14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
 15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
 16And 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:
 17And 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.
 18Here 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.
