If I Were Told the Future: Test for Lesson 66

  1. The little horn, described in the book of Daniel, and the beast rising from the sea, described in the book of Revelation, both present the following characteristics, except one. Which one?
    Both reigned during 1260 years.
    Both made war against the saints.
    Both spoke blasphemies against God.
    Both were mortally wounded, and then healed.

  2. Revelation chapter 13 describes the work of the «beast rising up out of the sea». The description of this beast perfectly corresponds to that of the little horn of Daniel chapters 7 and 8. The «beast rising up out of the sea» is therefore...
    ... king Antiochus IV Epiphanes.
    ... the Papacy (papal Rome).
    ... Roman emperor Nero.
    ... the United Nations Organization.

  3. Revelation chapter 12 says that «the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her Child.» Now, Revelation chapter 13 says that «the dragon gave [the beast] his power, and his seat, and great authority.» Just as foretold, the great dragon, that is, Satan, used the same nation to attempt to kill Jesus, and then to give the Papacy power and authority. What is that nation?
    The Roman Empire.

  4. The beast rising from the sea, described in Revelation chapter 13, is a combination of the four pagan kingdoms listed in the book of Daniel chapter 7. In fact, the beast rising from the sea displays the same number of heads and horns as all the beasts symbolizing the four kingdoms of Daniel 7, that is...
    ... 7 heads and 10 horns.
    ... 10 heads and 7 horns.
    ... 7 heads and 7 horns.
    ... 10 heads and 10 horns.

  5. Furthermore, the same beasts presented in Daniel 7 make up the body of the beast rising from the sea, described in Revelation chapter 13. Prophecy thus indicates that the beast rising from the sea has the characteristics of the four pagan kingdoms that preceded it. Among the following beasts, please check off all those that make up the body of the beast rising from the sea:
    The lion.
    The bear.
    The ox.
    The leopard.

  6. Just as foretold in Revelation chapter 13, the first reign of the beast rising from the sea lasted exactly «forty and two months», that is, 1260 years (42 months x 30 days = 1260 days). Which event put an end to this 1260-year reign?
    The Lisbon earthquake in 1755.
    The United States Declaration of Independence in 1776.
    The storming of the Bastille in 1792.
    The imprisonment of Pope Pius VI in 1798.

  7. The book of Revelation chapter 13 announced what would happen after the 1260-year reign of the Papacy: «I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was Indeed, the Papacy recovered its political power in the year , when Mussolini, by the Treaty, restored temporal power to the pope who has, since then, ruled over the state of .

  8. After the healing of the beast’s deadly wound, that is, after the Papacy has recovered its political power, the book of Revelation chapter 13 adds this astonishing prediction, «And all the world...»
    «... made an alliance against the beast.»
    «... payed no attention to the beast.»
    «... began to fear the beast.»
    «... wondered after the beast.»

  9. Revelation chapter 13 says, «Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast.» In the apostle John’s time, there was a well-known game named «Gematria», in which one calculated the number of a name by adding up the numerical value of the letters of this name. Now, the letters of the Pope’s official name indeed add up to 666. The English translation of this official name is:
    «Supreme Pontiff.»
    «First Bishop of Rome.»
    «Vicar of the Son of God.»
    «Holy Father.»

  10. Finally, the book of Revelation chapter 13 foretells what the Papacy will do in the last days: «And he causes , both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a in their right hand, or in their foreheads: and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the This important prophecy will be the subject of a future lesson.
