The Beast of Revelations:
Crushing Bear Paws
Photographer Steve Kazlowski
2. The beast I saw was like a leopard, with the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave the beast his power and throne and great authority.
The Bear in Scripture represents something incorporated to become powerful, and in this last empire, it represents corporations, or corporatism. This would also include big banking, and in particular, world banks or the world banking system, and actually, the Vatican is a corporation too.
Few people realize that politicians do not run the world, but large corporations run it, dominate it, and they crush the middle class, and especially the poor, into the ground through debt, and through laws that were made specifically to keep the powerful in power: to keep the rich rich, and to keep the poor poor.
Governments are the pawns of the big corporations. It is a global empire, but it is an empire that is secret from most people.
This short documentary, "Confessions of an Economic Hitman", can tell the facts far better than I can. But suffice to say, what he says in this documentary is the Beast's bear paws, crushing the majority of people, and trampling down their resources. Proverbs 13:23 says, "Abundant food is in the fallow ground of the poor, but injustice sweeps it away."
In the PBS documentary about Martin Luther, they tell about Martin Luther traveling to the Vatican from his German monastery, and they state:
Martin Luther had entered the headquarters of a Europe-wide corporation, supported on the profits of monasteries, such as his own, donations of the faithful, and fees that were charged for everything, such as marriage licenses to a cardinal-ship.
Speaking of the Catholic church, they said:
The ones that rose to the top were rough-cut businessmen.
Catholicism is run as a state, a corporation, and a political force. It is entirely worldly with a Christian facade. It is a lie; it is a beast. I believe it is the iron of the legs and feet of Daniel's statue, having only mixed with clay after the Protestant Revolution; and remaining iron in the world through dark, wicked means and secret societies.
However, Catholicism is also the harlot on the back of the red beast, and according to Revelations, the beast rises up to kill her and burn her with fire. Therefore, whoever the anti-Christ is, he isn't going to be the Pope, whom he's going to kill; and his reign will not be specifically from the Catholic religion or the Vatican, because he ascribes to no god, but makes himself out to be god; and the Vatican is going to be destroyed with fire. Though, I wouldn't rule out that he originates from Catholicism but rebels against the Pope. Rome has been the world-wide beast since the Caesars. And this Roman beast crushes through corporatism and centralized banking powers.
