The ships of Tyrus
Ezekiel 27:25 -
The ships of Tarshish did sing of thee in thy market: and thou wast replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of the seas.
People are not much aware of the beast as to who he or it is. The Quran thinks of the beast as a powerful person who comes in the latter days (which they think is now; some Muslims believed Gorge Bush was him during the Gulf War and now think Obhama is him). In the book of Revelation the beast is shown as a close companion to the Dragon (Satan - Lucifer). People expect him to come in the end days but are not aware it has been here since the start and is actively doing its job.
In the Old Testament the beast has been called the young lion - imitating righteousness (Psalms, Isaiah), Prince of Tyrus - half truths (Ezekiel) and in the books of Moses in Israel's exodus symbolized by King Sihon. Some mistake it to be Satan who is clearly differentiated in the Old Testament as the serpent (Psalms, Isaiah), King of Tyrus (Ezekiel) and in the books of Moses symbolized as King Og.
This character has hidden itself so cleverly since ages and has been deceiving people, especially the people of God. Most mistake him to Lucifer - who is bonded in Hell and would be released at the end.
When Jesus hinted of the church that will be built on the name of Peter, He was referring to this character - the beast / the Prince of Tyrus. Revelation talks of this church as being a woman set on a beast with multiple heads. It also gives clues to the headquarters of this beats by the heads and that being Europe. The book of Daniel even goes further giving details and specifies it as the Vatican.
When the Lord revealed to me the true identification as to who Lucifer was and is I was wondering if he is not with us then who is this Satan (the word in scriptures is mostly plural) who is with us? It was then the Lord revealed this character - the beast to me. Then I realized why it was written of Satan (Lucifer) as being with us and wasn't.
If one looks across all religions it is this beast (Satan) that has been fooling them and has been making itself god. Even Christianity has not been spared and in fact it has made the early Christian church its headquarters; Babylon the Great - the queen of all fornication and blasphemy. The early church tries to hide all its beastly doings by calling that era as the dark ages of the church. An institute which is supposed to give Light becomes a source of darkness?
If we study the hierarchy in the Angels - the Heavenly body according to the Bible then only will we are able to understand who Lucifer and this beast were and are, and how together they managed to cause the fall of one third of the army of hosts - the Angels. This character's powers along with the other fallen angels were taken away during the time when them was thrown to earth, unlike Lucifer who's powers still remain but is bond in Hell the endless pit to be released after his due time.
In today's message the Lord speaks through Ezekiel and tells us about the business this beast has been doing in the name of religion.
Yesterday I was outside a Catholic church which has just received a huge statue of Pope John Paul. When I was in the RC church I was an altar boy and had served the mass of this pope when he visited India. At that time I considered it a great privilege and honor because I was the head altar boy right in front. Later when I came into the Lord and receive the Spirit of discernment I came to know and realize the great wrongs this individual whom I thought was a man of God use to do.
This pope was most famous for his great believe in Black Mary a version of Mary in South America (mainly Brazil). He has been party to the witch crafts performed in name of this god (Black Mary) especially when he was very sick. He was also famous in the Vatican for all the physical punishment (lashes) he use to give himself whenever he use to sin (this still seem to continues with the current pope).
Today this person void of God and understanding of His Word has been promoted to be a saint so that idols of him can be manufactured and marketed and so as to bring business to this church. This sainthood will open new avenues for money by posters, postcard pictures, lockets, chains etc. like they do with the other so called saints.
The most successful deceit of this beast is that of it coming in the form of Mary the mother of Jesus and misleading people to do exactly what Jesus said not to do while telling them she (it) is leading them to Jesus, thus making them a rebellious people. This is the reason the name 'Mary' which means 'rebellion' was given to her for God knew what man would do in her name.
The mother of man Jesus is sleeping in her rest in the bosom of Abraham while swords are being pierced in her soul by the misuse of her name, all done by the deceit of the beast. The figure Mary has been used in the most commercial way to gain money by this church unlike any other god by the non-Christians. In the last days by the power of the Anti-Christ this character will literally manifest to life.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord we pray that You give the Spirit of discernment to your Church especially to its leaders. They perish due to lack of vision and they are under bondage because they do not keep you commandments and do not understand them. You have given us a Spirit of Son-ship and not of bondage. Lord by the authority You have given us we set free the leaders of your Church from the deceit of the beast and we expose it and bind its finances...
We do this in Jesus' Name, Amen.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.
29 Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it.
30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

3 And it came to pass in the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first day of the month, that Moses spake unto the children of Israel, according unto all that the LORD had given him in commandment unto them;
4 After he had slain Sihon the king of the Amorites, which dwelt in Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, which dwelt at Astaroth in Edrei:
30 But Sihon king of Heshbon would not let us pass by him: for the LORD thy God hardened his spirit, and made his heart obstinate, that he might deliver him into thy hand, as appeareth this day.
31 And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have begun to give Sihon and his land before thee: begin to possess, that thou mayest inherit his land.
32 Then Sihon came out against us, he and all his people, to fight at Jahaz.
33 And the LORD our God delivered him before us; and we smote him, and his sons, and all his people.
34 And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain:
11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.
1 These are the words of the covenant, which the LORD commanded Moses to make with the children of Israel in the land of Moab, beside the covenant which he made with them in Horeb.
2 And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land;
3 The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles:
4 Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.
5 And I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot.
6 Ye have not eaten bread, neither have ye drunk wine or strong drink: that ye might know that I am the LORD your God.
7 And when ye came unto this place, Sihon the king of Heshbon, and Og the king of Bashan, came out against us unto battle, and we smote them:
8 And we took their land, and gave it for an inheritance unto the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to the half tribe of Manasseh.
9 Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.
1 And 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.
2 And 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.
3 And 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.
4 And 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?

6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And 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.
8 And 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.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He 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.
11 And I beheld another beast [the Anti-Christ] coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb [he would be the last Pope], and he spake as a dragon.
12 And 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.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
14 And 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.
15 And 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.
1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
