Zion vs the Beast III: Daniel's Little Horn

If you read Part II of this series, you'll have barely scratched the surface of the history of the war between English and French Freemasonry, but just that cursory knowledge is enough for Mr. Daniel's insights on the prophecies of John and Daniel to begin to make sense. By way of disclaimer, I must stress again that these scriptural interpretations are a combination of Mr. Daniel's and my own. And as always, I could be wrong, however, I feel impressed to share these things because I believe that studying history and philosophy can prepare us to understand prophecy as it begins to unfold. 

As I stated in Part II, both Nephi and Jesus have offered clues that have been recorded in the Book of Mormon text that will help us prepare for the last-days tribulation. Jesus said that Isaiah spoke of things that hath been and shall be, hinting that we should study history in order to anticipate future prophecy. And Nephi told us that the words of Isaiah will be of great worth to us in our day, "for in that day shall they understand them." Nephi uses the words of Isaiah as his testimony of the things he saw and was forbidden to write, because Isaiah saw the same things. He just recorded it in coded language that is hard to decipher, but I believe that it is supposed to be that way. It should take arduous effort and careful study, even "ponderous and solemn thoughts," to attempt to comprehend the things of God. If it were too easy, we would take it for granted, and it would become a source of pride for us. Jesus admonished us, through the Nephites, to "search the prophets, for many there be that testify of these things." Here is another clue: God revealed certain aspects of the future to each of the prophets, each containing certain pieces of the puzzle. Consequently, uncovering each puzzle piece requires familiarity with not only Jewish culture and history, but a history of all nations and peoples. The following admonition (actually a commandment) to the Saints in Joseph's day surely still applies to us:
Teach diligently and my grace shall attend you, that you may be instructed more perfectly in theory, in principle, in doctrine, in the law of the gospel, in all things that pertain unto the kingdom of God, that are expedient for you to understand, of things both in Heaven, and in the earth, and under the earth; things which have been, things which are, and things which must shortly come to pass, things which are at home, things which are abroad, the wars and perplexities of the nations, and a knowledge also of countries and kingdoms; that you may be prepared in all things when I shall send you again to magnify the calling whereunto I have called you and the mission with which I have commissioned you. (T&C 86:14, emphasis added)

Here again the Lord has given us clues to understanding prophecy: things which have been and must shortly come to pass, combined with, a knowledge of countries and kingdoms. Mr. Daniel, in his thoroughly researched book, Scarlet and the Beast, has precisely followed this admonition, even though he has probably never read the Doctrine and Covenants and believes Mormonism is just another branch of Freemasonry. He has taken a comprehensive history of Freemasonry and applied it to how its influence and revolutions have shaped nations, kingdoms, and countries into our modern global milieu. This revisionist view of history, when read in conjunction with Isaiah, Nephi, and other prophets of the Old Testament, makes perfect sense when applied to the metaphors describing John and Daniel's Beast. A beast, after all, is an animal, driven by pure instinct, with little ability to think or reason. A beast must be bridled to reign in its animalistic urges, otherwise it will wreak havoc upon all who are attempting to domesticate it.  

John tells us that the beast he saw was in the likeness of the kingdoms of the earth, a clue that equates the beast with unchecked, unbridled, undiluted, raw...  State power. What he saw was the natural passions of men who dream of using the abstractive State as a means to crush, control, enslave, kill, plunder, and make themselves gods among men. If one strips away the veneer of pietistic pomp, lavish regalia, feigned altruism, pretended philanthropy, and pseudo statesmanship of such men, one is left with nothing but their true selves and desires; an image of a hideous beast. A monster which no amount of power and authority can satiate, an emperor stripped of his clothes, basking in the naked hubris of his own self-delusions and vain ambitions. Such men God will not have to destroy, for they will destroy themselves, just as Nephi has predicted. They will be drunken with their own blood, being so consumed with power that they will kill anyone for just a chance to obtain a small amount of it. Their lust for authority is their addiction, and ironically, it will become their end, just as it was for the Jaredites and the Nephites. 

With that imagery in your mind, let's dive into what the prophets have said. Every word has meaning. Every stone unturned is hiding a clue. This will not be light reading. Open your mind, and ask for the Spirit to judge the truth of what I write. If I’m wrong I welcome correction. Let's begin.

Heads, Horns, Carpenters, and Waters

 The prophet Zechariah had the following vision:

Then lifted I up my eyes, and saw, and behold, four horns. And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these? And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem. And the Lord showed me four carpenters. Then said I, What do these come to do? And he spoke, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head, but these have come to frighten them, to cast out the horns of the gentiles, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it. (Zechariah 1:4, RE) 
According to Mr. Daniel, the "horns" may be referring to governmental or kingly power, especially of the Gentile nations. This imagery dates back to Nimrod, who was often depicted with bull horns, and some archaeologists believe that he actually wore a physical crown of them. Later, the Babylonian god Molech was depicted as the minotaur, or half man, half bull. In the book of Genesis, Nimrod is described as being a "mighty one in the earth," and he built a city and a tower in the land of Shinar, or Babylonia. Mr. Daniel elucidates that the city represented his political power, and the tower his religious power. He had control of both church and state, which, as you recall, is the stated goal of Mystery Babylon, the mother of harlots. In fact, Nimrod was the first (after the flood) to establish the Babylonian System, in which kings were considered divine and had total control over their subjects. Mr. Daniel explains that Zechariah's horns represent the kingdoms of Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome, as the scatterers of the Jews, and that the carpenters represent revolutions against those horns. In Hebrew the word carpenter is synonymous with mason, and Freemasons use the compass and the square as their symbols, both are tools used in carpentry. Although the horns represent ancient kingdoms, the carpenters may represent modern revolutions. As Mr. Daniel points out, Freemasonry has backed the English (1688), American (1776), French (1789), and Russian (1917) revolutions. Other translations of the Bible substitute the word "fray" for frighten in Zechariah 1:4 quoted above. Fray in Hebrew means, "to shudder with terror," which is interesting, because the French Revolution was called the Reign of Terror, and the Bolshevik Revolution was called the Red Terror. Each one of the revolutions listed above have contributed to emancipating the Jews, as Mr. Daniel explains:
We can trace the stages of this movement: France gave full emancipation to the Jews in 1791. Russia gave birth to the Zionist movement in the latter half of the 19th century. England gave Palestine to Zionists following World War I. And America guarantees Israel's survival today. (Scarlet and the Beast, p. 526) 

King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon was the first of the "horns" to subdue Judah, and Daniel was the captured Israelite prophet who found favor with this king. Nebuchadnezzar is another representation of the Babylonian System, as you recall he made an image out of gold and forced everyone to worship it, the only resisters being Daniel and his three friends. This is a typology of the future Beast system that John wrote about, and I think it no coincidence that Daniel's vision occurs shortly after the account of the fiery furnace. God is showing us the typology and the prophecy of what is to come, John and Daniel being two witnesses of the same thing. This typology is that at some future time the Beast will force all to worship his image or be killed, just as king Nebuchadnezzar did. 

While Zechariah saw four horns, Daniel saw four beasts coming out of the sea. Remember, this is imagery for kingdoms rising up over masses of people, represented by water. The vision is as follows:

And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another. The first as like a lion and had eagle's wings. I beheld until the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it. And behold, another beast, a second like a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it, between the teeth of it. And they said thus unto it: Arise, devour much flesh. After this, I beheld and saw another, like a Leopard which had upon the back of it four wings of a fowl. The beast had also four heads, and dominion was given to it. 

These beasts represents different empires, possibly the same empires seen by Zechariah: Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. However, it is the next part of the vision that I want to focus on:

After this, I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible and exceedingly strong, and it had great iron teeth. It devoured, and broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it, and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. I considered the horns, and behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots. And behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things. (Daniel 7:1, RE)

This fourth beast is similar to the beast that John describes, who will "rise up out of the sea," who was like a leopard, but had the feet of a bear, and the mouth of a lion. Notice that the leopard, bear, and lion, earthly empires described by Daniel, will be part of the last days beast as described by John, who was hinting at a one-world government. Notice also that both beasts had ten horns (more on that later). So who is the fourth beast described by Daniel? Some speculate it is Rome, which was the most powerful military empire that existed before the heydays of Britain and the United States. His imagery of great iron teeth, breaking in pieces, stamping the residue, and being diverse from all other beasts, fits perfectly with the Roman Empire. But who is Daniel's "little horn"? This is where it gets interesting. 

John describes the horns as having "ten crowns," signifying kingdoms. However, a "little horn" fits more with a rising kingdom, or a nation that has not yet become a kingdom. This little horn's beginning had something to do with plucking the roots of three other horns. This will fit perfectly with a particular nation you are all familiar with, but I won't give it away quite yet. Later in Daniel's vision the Lord offered the interpretation of the vision:

These great beasts, which are four, are four kings who shall arise out of the earth; but the saints of the Most High shall take the kingdom and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever. 

Daniel's attention then turns to the fourth beast:

Then I desired to know the truth of the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, whose teeth were of iron and his nails of brass; which devoured, broke in pieces, and stamped the residue with his feet; and of the ten horns that were his head, and of the other which came up and before whom three fell, even of that horn that had eyes and a mouth that spoke very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows. 

What other nation could this fourth beast be but ancient Rome? Who was "diverse" from all others because it was a world empire. Truly, Rome "devoured, broke in pieces," and "stamped the residue" of many nations and peoples. Daniel then sees what this beast does both anciently and in the future:

I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them until the Ancient of Days came, and judgment was given to the saints of the Most High, and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. 

Ancient Rome prevailed against the saints, torturing, executing, enslaving, and scattering them, and then coopted them with the rising of Constantine and Catholicism. But, the Ancient of Days (Adam/Michael) has not come yet (he will return before the second coming of Christ), so Daniel is seeing the future when this same beast will persecute the saints once again. Not only will the beast prevail against the saints, he "shall devour the whole earth":

Thus he [the Lord] said: The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon the earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down and break it in pieces. And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise. And another shall rise after them, and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.  

This beast, the fourth, who is ancient Rome, will rise again in the latter-days, and shall again be diverse from the rest, and shall be at the head of ten kings, and shall subdue three kings. Recall from Daniel 7:1 that the "little horn" is made up of three other horns, which means this new beast will be the maturation of the little horn, and cannot be ancient Rome. That kingdom is long gone, buried deep within the annals of history, with only dust remaining. So who is this new beast? Daniel gets a few more clues from the Lord:

And he [the beast] shall speak great words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change times and laws. And they shall be given unto his hand until a time, and times, and the dividing of time. But the judgement shall sit and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and to destroy it unto the end. And the kingdom, and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom; and all dominions shall serve and obey him. Hitherto is the end of the matter. (Daniel 7:6-8, RE) 

This beast will "wear out the saints of the Most High," for "a time, and times, and the dividing of time," which could be referring to the seven years tribulation period. He will "think to change times and laws," which could be referring to some kind of reset, something folks have been talking a lot about recently. We still don't have enough information to name this beast, but there are more clues in the second chapter of Daniel, when he interprets king Nebuchadnezzar's dream. For those of us who grew up in the corporate Church this vision has been drilled into our minds as "proof" that the LDS Church is the kingdom of God, "cut out of the mountain, without hands," that will one day fill the whole earth. However, when the entire chapter (and the entire book of Daniel for that matter) is read in context, such an narrow interpretation of Daniel's vision becomes laughable. The kingdom of God is not a church, or some tax-exempt corporation (it cannot be a legal fiction), it is God's political kingdom that will be left standing after the Beast and the Whore destroy each other. It is the kingdom that Christ alone deserves to reign in as King of kings and Lord of lords. In the context of Daniel's vision, this will begin as the latter-day Zion, which will eventually fill all of North and South America, and from old Jerusalem will fill the other half of the earth. All who are allowed to dwell in this kingdom will be made free, and all partakers of the heavenly gift

Here is the dream that Nebuchadnezzar had. Try to forget everything you've been taught about it, try to cast those narrow traditions of the LDS Church out of your mind, as if you are reading it for the first time:

You, O king, saw and beheld a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before you, and the form thereof was terrible. This image's head was of find gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thigh of brass, his legs of iron, his feet, part of iron and part of clay. You saw until a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay and broke them to pieces. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors, and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them. And the stone that smote the image became a great mountain and filled the whole earth.

Before we get into Daniel's interpretation, there are a few things to consider. The king beheld an image, meaning something that is an abstraction, something that is not real. Yet the image appeared to be made of gold, silver, brass, iron and clay. It appeared to be made of substance, but was, in point of fact, merely an empty reflection. In the first post I wrote on this blog, Gadianton's and the State, I made the argument that the State is nothing but an image. It is not real, it is an abstraction. The State is the image that those who control the government hide behind, as if it were some self-thinking, autonomous being, some collective beast that has a mind of its own. Yet, when taken to its logical conclusion, it is only a mask. A mask worn by those Gadianton's who use it for their own ends, namely, to murder and to plunder. But a stone, now that's real. It has substance. Yet, it is not made of anything shiny like gold, silver, or brass. It appears to be worthless, yet hidden beneath that pedestrian appearance is something tangible, something weighty, something that can easily crush an image by merely existing. 

But who is looking for an ordinary stone? Who will notice it when gold is glittering all around them? States appear to have powerful armies and navies, they appear to have stringent laws that curtail and control, they appear to have vast regions of land under their purview, they appear to be your overlords and task masters. But it's all just an image, none of it is real. God, who is in the stone, the plain and simple rock, wherein there is no beauty or desirability, is the overlooked King. The earth belongs to Him, and that stone that looks like billions of other stones, will rise up and morph into a mountain, a tangible edifice that one will be obliged to notice on account of its sheer size. This dream, my friends, is a metaphor for Zion, it will eventually become a mountain that will fill the whole earth, destroying other kingdoms only by the fact that it exists. Now that you have this imagery fresh in your mind, let's read Daniel's interpretation:

This is the dream, and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king. You, O king, are a king of kings, for the God of heaven has given you a kingdom, power, strength, and glory. And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven has he given into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all. You are this head of gold. And after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to you, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron, forasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and subdues all things, and as iron that breaks all these shall it break in pieces and bruise. And whereas you saw the feet and toes, part of the potters' clay and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided, but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as you saw the iron mixed with miry clay. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly broken. And whereas you saw iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men, but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay. 

The four kingdoms described by both Daniel and Zachariah, according to Biblical scholars that Mr. Daniel defers to, are Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. Mr. Daniel subscribes to the idea that the dividing of the fourth kingdom refers to the separation of Rome into the Eastern and Western empires under Constantine, and that the "feet and toes" refers to its subsequent breaking apart. After Rome fell the seat of Mystery Babylon, or Satan's church, moved, eventually ending up in London. It was there in London Town, the only part of London that William the Conqueror couldn't conquer, that the maritime merchants imported their Lex Mercantoria system from ancient Rome, the infamous law of the sea, or Maritime Admiralty Law. I wrote about that in this post and that post. Daniel's imagery of iron and clay could signify the breaking up of the Roman Empire as Mr. Daniel opines, or it could have a deeper, more general meaning. Remember, prophecy is a mixture of the past and future, and as you will see in the next verse, part of this prophecy is about things that have not yet happened. 

Iron could be a metaphor for prostituted government, i.e., the unbridled power (brute force) of the State controlled by Gadiantons, and clay could be a metaphor for us, the subjects of the State. Scripture refers to our bodies as tabernacles of clay, which are moldable, formed by our Creator. Iron, however, is not so moldable, and requires intense heat to liquify, upwards of 2200 degrees Fahrenheit. I think that what Daniel is telling us is that iron and clay cannot mix without revolution, because revolution has always been associated with fire and heat. In Rock Waterman's latest blog post, he plugged the book Fire in the Minds of Men, which uses this same imagery in regard to historic revolutions. Daniel's interpretation of the king's dream could have multiple meanings: the breaking up of Rome, the moving of the headquarters of Mystery Babylon, the revolutions that French Freemasonry has orchestrated against English Freemasonry, and the incompatibility of enslaved humanity to coexist with totalitarian government; such a scenario eventually ends up in revolution.

Daniel could be hinting at one more concept: irony. The word irony is derived from the word iron, which, in addition to its application to a hard metal, also means "powerful, holy, vigorous, and strong." Perhaps what Daniel is saying is that it is ironic that the State is compared to iron, because the State is merely an image, it does not exist in the real world. The tangible iron that emanates from the State are leaders, armies, weapons, munitions, tanks, aircraft, buildings, etc., implements that we can see and feel the "iron" weight of. But the abstractive elements the State is associated with, such as power, grandiosity, and “higher” morality, are illusions. States can only hold onto these abstractive concepts if the people, i.e., the clay, believe they are inherent in the State by virtue of its existence. But once those beliefs are changed, i.e., revolution, the State is relegated to the idea it began as, and the cycle repeats. 

Here is the rest of Daniel's interpretation: 

And in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed. And the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever. Forasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut of the mountain without hands, and that it broke in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold, the great God has made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter. And the dream is certain, and the interpretation thereof sure. (Daniel 2:6-7, RE) 

At this point Daniel's focus has gone to the future Zion, "the stone cut out of the mountain without hands," meaning that it will be God's work, not the work of men. Yet he says that Zion will come "in the days of these kings." How is that possible if the kingdoms he his talking about are of ancient date? This would have to mean that those ancient empires will return in some form or another in our day, but to get the rest of this story, we have to turn to Saint John. However, before we do so, there are a few more details to explore on the headquarters of Mystery Babylon, or English Freemasonry. 

Ground Zero and the Seven Kings

Ground zero for Mystery Babylon, according to Mr. Daniel, is "10 Duke Street, St. James's, London, England SWI - the 33rd degree Supreme Council Headquarters of English Freemasonry." He makes a pretty good case for this, and remember, he is writing in 1995:
As we have seen, English Freemasonry, the mother of all Freemasonry, claims her roots in ancient Babylon. With over 9,000 temple-lodges scattered throughout most nations of the world, (and with over 7,000 in Great Britain alone, including 1,700 in London) English Freemasonry is the largest harlot religion on earth today. Moreover, this modern Whore of Babylon has given birth to hundreds of modern secret societies, cults, think tanks, and a variety of political orders. (Scarlet, p. 534)

Drawing from Edith Miller’s book, Occult Theocrasy (1933), he lists many of the "political orders, think tanks, cults, and modern secret societies." I will list some of the most famous ones:

  • From England: Rosicrucians, Round Table Groups, Fabian Society, Rock and Roll music (beginning with the Beatles), Theosophical Society. 
  • From Germany: Illuminati, Thule Society.
  • From France: Scottish Rite, French Grand Lodge, Grand Orients, Jacobins, Communism, Socialism, League of Nations, EEC (European Economic Community), the United States of Europe.
  • From Italy: Mafia.
  • From Russia: Nihilists and Anarchists.
  • From America: Scottish Rite, York Rite, Shriners, Christian Science, Ku Klux Klan Lucis Mist, Church of Scientology, National Council of Churches, Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the United Nations, and the New Age Movement. (Ibid, p. 534)
In addition to London, I've suspected for some time that New York, specifically Wall Street, is a second home-base of Mystery Babylon. London and New York are, after all, the financial centers of the world. A while back I wrote a post analyzing D. Todd Christopherson's talk on Sustainable Societies, a term that comes from the UN's Agenda for Sustainable Development. The article, entitled, Is Zion a "Sustainable Society"?, is a rabbit hole that explores the occult origins of the United Nations (to which the LDS Church is now contributing copious financial donations), the headquarters of which are located in New York City. In fact, the former address for the Lucifer Publishing Company (changed to Lucis Trust or Lucis Mist), created by theosophists Alice Bailey and Helena Blavatsky, is 666 United Nations Plaza, New York City. It doesn't get any more blatant than that. Later, I'll get into the mystery school's concept of the "secret destiny of America," which is to them, "the land of the plumed serpent." Remember, God creates and Satan imitates, copy-catting even the concept of "promised-lands." In my opinion, New York City is just as much "ground zero" as London; this was made profoundly evident when, on 911, they deliberately brought down the Twin Towers, the esoteric representation of the Pillars of Hercules, signaling that the financial system of the world was about to change... an important step in preparing the world for the Beast system. 

In John's vision of Scarlet, he sees her riding on a political beast that has seven heads and ten horns. The angel showing the vision gives John this important key to understanding it:
And here is the mind which has wisdom: the seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits. (Revelation 6:12, RE)

Other Biblical prophets, specifically Isaiah, have used mountains and hills as representations of nations. Hills being smaller nation-states, and mountains being large empires, kingdoms, republics or democracies. Nephi saw Scarlet having "dominion over all the earth, among all nations, kindreds, tongues, and people." But John saw her sitting on only seven nations, which means that these seven nations must have preeminence over the rest of the earth. And since prophecy can be a mixture of past and future, the seven nations could represent historic and future world powers. Mr. Daniel defers to William Goetz, in his book, Apocalypse Next, who identifies the following six ancient empires that had major influence over Israel: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome. 

Continuing with John's vision, he tells us that there are seven kings over the seven mountains, and the the seventh has not yet come:

And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition. (Revelation 6:12, RE)

The first five kings, ancient Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia, and Greece are all fallen empires that now only speak to us from the dust. Number six, the one that "is," is old Rome, the empire that existed when John wrote Revelation. The seventh king, who only continues a "short space," is a nation that rises and falls quickly, and the eighth, is the one that was, and is not, being both number six and eight. If ancient Rome is number six, who is number eight? It would have to be a nation that is patterned after old Rome, a mini-Rome if you will. Could this mini-Rome, or "revived Rome," as Mr. Daniel calls it, be the same nation as Daniel's "little horn" that we read about earlier - the nation that is made up of the roots of three other horns? Before we reveal this 8th beast, who is part of the Beast of the apocalypse, there is a little more history to get into, history of some secret societies that emanated from England around the turn of the 20th century. 

But before we get into that history, can we identify the seventh king, the one who only continues a "short space"? Mr. Daniel speculates that this king could be Hitler and the mountain could be Nazi Germany. Hitler's Germany shares characteristics with the preceding five kingdoms in that they were civilizations based on pagan sun-worship and the occult. The swastika, as Mr. Daniel points out, "is an eastern occult symbol of the sun." Just like those ancient empires, who were controlled by the early Mystery religions, i.e., the ancient Mother of Harlots, Hitler's Germany was bolstered and financed by English Freemasonry, the modern Mother of Harlots. Hitler was overzealous to implement world government based on the Babylonian system, and as a result he fell in rapid succession. 

Seven Wills for Seven Mountains

The seven mountains that Scarlet sits on have been carefully subjugated by her clandestine secret societies. The group that is primarily responsible for Scarlet's modern mountains is none other than the Round Table Group, founded by Alfred Milner in 1909. The Round Table Group was the brainchild of Cecil Rhodes, the famous anglophile that wanted to put English Freemasonry (and the British Empire) back on the world map. Disgruntled with the loss of the American colonies a century before, and the subsequent weakening of the British Empire, Rhodes wanted to form a secret society with:
...but one object - the furtherance of the British Empire and the bringing of the whole uncivilized world under British rule, for the recovery of the United States, [and] for... making the Anglo-Saxon race but one Empire. (Quoted in Scarlet, p. 439)

Rhodes made his fortune early in his life, which was only 49 years long (1853-1902), in the business of diamond mining in South Africa. By the time he began college at Oxford he was already wealthy, and through loans from Lord Nathan Rothschild, Mayer's son, Rhodes bought up other diamond mines and quickly monopolized the trade in the purchase of DeBeer's mining company. Rhodes vast wealth was allocated in seven wills, which allowed his predecessors, including Alfred (Lord) Milnor and H.G. Wells, to create the Round Table groups and Rhodes Scholarship program. These groups were dedicated to the goals of English Freemasonry, and to the furtherance of the British Empire, which was spreading in South Africa and India. Because of Rhodes' wealth and preeminence in South Africa, he became the Prime Minister of Cape Colony, and was both revered and hated by the people there. The former country known as Rhodesia, was named after him, and to this day there are mixed feelings about his legacy. The 2006 movie Blood Diamond is based on the story of the DeBeers monopoly. 

The book that was recommended earlier, that was also plugged on Rock Waterman's latest blog post, Fire in the Minds of Men: Origins of Revolutionary Faith, was written by a Rhodes Scholar, James H. Billington. More than just a history of revolution, it is an attempt to expose French Freemasonry as the perpetrators of revolutions against English Freemasonry. Here are Billington's own words in describing this phenomenon:

So great, indeed, was the general impact of Freemasonry in the revolutionary era that some understanding of the Masonic milieu seems an essential starting point for any serious Inquiry into the occult roots of the revolutionary tradition. (Quoted in Ibid, p. 441)

Another highly influential Rhodes Scholar was Dr. Carroll Quigley, author of Tragedy and Hope and, The Anglo-American Establishment. It was this scholar that Bill Clinton, also a Rhodes Scholar, gave homage to in a speech at the Democratic convention in 1992. Quigley was a professor of history at Georgetown University for 35 years, and was taken in by the Anglo-American establishment and allowed to study its secret records. The books he authored exposing the conspiracy was not an exposition at all, but rather a recommendation of the group and its goals. He traces the history all the way back to the Round Table groups, which formed other think-tank offshoots such as the Royal Institute of International Affairs (London 1919), the Council on Foreign Relations (New York 1921), and the Institute of Pacific Relations (organized in 1925 by 12 countries encompassing the Pacific Rim). 

The people in these think-tanks weren't necessarily privy to the goals of the insiders at the top. G. Edward Griffin describes these groups as "circles within concentric circles" of conspiracy. Those who get accepted into the outer circles are usually idealists who buy into socialism, communism, Fabianism, or any other form of collectivism or Statism, and ignorantly do the bidding of the top echelon, who use these ideals to further their plan of aristocratic world government. Griffin gave a lecture in 2008 that he called The Quigley Formula, and I highly recommend watching it, as he brings the entire thing together concisely and succinctly: 

Saint John saw the last-days Beast as a tripartite animal, rising out of the sea, and empowered by the Devil himself:

And I saw another sign, in the likeness of the kingdoms of the earth, a beast, rise up out of the sea, and stood upon the sand of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his head the name of Blasphemy. 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 Devil gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority... (Revelation 4:6, RE)

This animal imagery could be describing three regions of the world. John, living in the part of the world that he did, would've been familiar with leopards, bears, and lions. However, he said that the beast was like unto a leopard, which could signify other large predatory cats. One such cat with similar characteristics to leopards is the jaguar, which John would've never seen because they inhabit North and South America. To me, this means that the main body of the last-days Beast will be primarily American, while the bear could represent Asia, specifically Russia, and the lion Europe, specifically England. Perhaps George Orwell was more prophetic than he realized when he divided the world into three regional powers: Eastasia, Eurasia, and Oceania. John tells us that the Devil (meaning the church of the Devil) gave the Beast his power, seat, i.e., government, and authority. Mystery Babylon, or English Freemasonry, will give this Beast total authority over the world, but, as John describes later, the Beast will turn on the Whore and devour her:

And he [the angel] says unto me, The water which you saw, where the whore sits, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire; for God has put it into their hearts to fulfill his will, and to agree and give their kingdom unto the beast until the words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth. (Revelation 6:13, RE)

Recall in Revelation 6:12 that the seven heads are seven mountains (nations), and the ten horns are ten kings, who:

 ...have received no kingdom as yet, but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 

These ten kings will be subordinate to the Beast, and it makes sense to me that the world will be divided up into ten regions, created by the seven mountains. These regions, split between the tripartite Beast, will have a beehive mentality, they will have one mind with the Beast (this is very interesting language in light of the fact that Christ also wants those in Zion to have "one heart and one mind"; is this another Satanic substitute for Zion?). Going back to the animal imagery for just a moment, it is my opinion that the jaguar represents power and control, the bear represents appendages, such as foot soldiers (Asian or Russian), and the lion represents propaganda, as in the lying words of English Freemasonry (scheming from behind the scenes in secret societies) used to form this monstrous Beast. The seven mountains that will be the foundation of the ten kings, or ten regions, will come from seven nations that will the most influential prior to the rising of the beast. 

Mr. Daniel equates these seven mountains with the seven nations that made up the Trilateral Commission, formed in 1973 by David Rockefeller and other globalists. This political entity was another product of the Round Table groups, and divided the world in three cooperating regions: Japan, Western Europe, and North America. The original G7 (group of nations) that made up the Trilateral Commission were the United States, Canada, England, Japan, France, Italy, and Germany. Mr. Daniel makes a side by side comparison with the six historic nations and one modern nation described in Revelation 6:12 (remember the five fallen kings, one that falls and is revived, and one that continues a short space) as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, Rome, and Nazi Germany (see Scarlet, p. 553). Since 1973, the number of nations that are members of the Trilateral Commission has grown considerably, but the original seven nations remain the foundation of the organization. This is just one possibility of John's seven mountains, which could be both a past and a future prophecy. 

Personally, I think that this is a very interesting connection that Mr. Daniel has made, but I must stress again, that you must make up your own mind about the book of Revelation, the truth of which can only be revealed to you by the Spirit. The clues that Nephi, John, Daniel, Isaiah, and other prophets have left along our path, are just that, incomplete clues, and we will not see the big picture until these things actually begin to unfold. The purpose of this post is to share with you readers some fascinating insights I've stumbled onto that may give you a foundational point to start looking, if you are so inclined to study these things out. Please don't believe anything that I write without verifying it, and for heaven's sake do your own research before you come to any conclusions. With that said, let's move onto the next clue that Daniel leaves us as we search for the identity of the last-days Beast. 

He Shall Not Regard Any God

In chapter 11 and 12 of the KJV of Daniel (chapter 10 of the Restoration Edition), Daniel describes a future war between four kings, and the battle will eventually come down to two: the king of the North and the king of the South. The king of the North will prevail, and I think this king is one of the kings who will dominate the last-days Beast, which could also be the king of Assyria described by Isaiah. You will have to read the entire chapter/chapters to get the full context, but here is how Daniel describes this king, and it is loaded with clues:
And the king shall do according to his will, and he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper until the indignation be accomplished; for that which is determined shall be done. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers, nor the desire of women, nor regard any god, for he shall magnify himself above all. But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces, and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and precious stones, and pleasant things. Thus shall he do in the most strongholds with a strange god whom he shall acknowledge and increase with glory. And he shall cause them to rule over many, and shall divide the land for gain. (Daniel 10:15, RE)

The first clue is that this king shares the same characteristics as the king of Assyria described by Isaiah. Most notably, his arrogance. He will think that it is because of his strength and his wisdom that he will be able to "remove the borders of the people," i.e., take over the whole world. Here is how Isaiah describes him:

For he saith, By the strength of my hand and by my wisdom have I done these things, for am I prudent. And I have removed the borders of the people, and have robbed their treasures, and I have put down the inhabitants like a valiant man. And my hand hath found as a nest the riches of the people, and as one gathereth eggs that are left have I gathered all the earth; and there was none that moved the wing, or opened the mouth, or peeped. Shall the ax boast itself against him the heweth therewith? Shall the saw magnify itself him that shaketh it? As if the rod should shake itself them that lift it up, or as if the staff should lift up itself as if it were no wood... (2 Nephi 9:7, RE)

Can you see the hubris of this man? Is it not unreasonable that this could be Daniel's king as well? Who will "exalt" and "magnify" himself, speaking blasphemous things against the true God, while not regarding any gods but the God of forces? Mr. Daniel reveals that "the Hebrew word for forces literally means ‘fortified place, fortress, or strength’" (Scarlet, p. 548). This king worships his own forces, meaning his own armies, weapons, and military strongpoints. These are the things he trusts in. The next clue is that he will not regard the "God of his fathers." What is Daniel talking about? The "god" of his fathers is none other than Lucifer, the god of English Freemasonry. Remember, it is the Mother of Harlots that will give this man his power, these are his "fathers." But once he gets a taste of that power he will not regard the source of it, falsely believing that it came from himself... the ultimate twist of irony for Mystery Babylon. The next clue is that he shall "not regard any god," meaning that he will be an atheist, believing that man is the highest source of knowledge, power, and authority. As to Daniel's comments about gold, silver (riches) and strongholds, Mr. Daniel makes this interesting observation:

Daniel is revealing that the god of the end-time Beast will be an awesome "defense" force that the world "respects" - a defense force that is "built up" with "riches." We know that today's [1995] military armament is promoted as "defense," and that, ironically, military budgets are called "defense budgets." Revelation 13:4 confirms the awesome defense capability of the Beast: "Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with him?" (Scarlet, p. 548)

The Beast's god will be military might, false gods of stone and steel, which he will use to terrorize and tyrannize the world. Mr. Daniel explains that the Beast, rejecting the: 

Mystery Babylonian religion of English Freemasonry...,  will instead follow the atheistic-humanist tradition of French Freemasonry. The allegiance of the Beast to French Freemasonry is confirmed in scripture. You recall that French Freemasonry declared in 1877 that there is no God. It proclaimed its secular humanism in the motto, "To the Glory of Humanity." Likewise, the Beast regards no god. And like French Freemasonry, which made a god of humanity, the Beast then "exult[s] himself, and magnif[ies] himself above every god..." (Ibid, p. 548)

Is a picture of this last-days scenario beginning to form in your mind? Let's recap a few important pieces of the puzzle: 

  • Nephi told us that the groups who are members of the Great and Abominable Church will war amongst themselves.
  • Isaiah told us that a king of Assyria will, in the last-days, break many people in pieces and remove the borders of the people. 
  • Jesus told us that we should study the history of countries and kingdoms, and offered the clue that Isaiah spoke of things that have been and shall be. He also commanded us to search the words of Isaiah, which are great, and that many other prophets testified of the same things. 
  • Zachariah saw four horns that will scatter Judah, and four carpenters that will fight revolutions against them. The word carpenter and mason are interchangeable, meaning he saw French Freemasonry's revolutions fought against English Freemasonry. These revolutions have, ironically, helped to emancipate the Jews from the horns. 
  • Daniel describes a Beast with seven heads and ten horns, with a little horn that will rise up and make war with the Saints until Michael, the Ancient of Day, returns. He also describes this "fourth" Beast as one who was mighty anciently, and who will be mighty in the future, and who be will godless. He compares the Beast to iron, and his subjects (us), as clay. Rome was the ancient Beast, and "revived Rome" will be the future Beast. 
  • John also describes a Beast with seven heads and ten horns, who will be part leopard, part lion, and part bear (which is the same description as Daniel's first three beasts). John's Beast will control ten kings who will be waiting to receive their kingdoms under his hand, and all of these will hate the whore, make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh. They will destroy her city and her merchants in one hour. John's Beast will make war with the Lamb and the Saints, he shall prevail against the Saints for a short time, until the Lamb destroys him. 
  • Nephi reveals that those who dig a pit for the people of the Lord will fall in themselves. 
  • Daniel affirms that Zion will break apart all earthly kingdoms, by its mere existence, and will stand forever and ever. 
Are you keeping all this straight? It's a bit overwhelming. In writing this post I've had to read the material I'm studying over and over, and I hope I'm presenting it in a way that is copacetic and easy to follow. Like I said before, none of the scriptural clues are chronological or coherent, each one requires a trip down a rabbit hole and endless hours of study. But now that we have come this far, it's time to reveal the nation that Daniel calls the "little horn," or the revived Roman Empire. 

One of these Nations is Just like the Other

Surprise, the little horn is none other than the United States of America, as you recall, Daniel said it was made of the roots of three other horns. These horns are Spain, France, and England. Remember, it was Spain, France, and England who were vying over the territory surrounding the Colonies. Spain controlled Florida and most of the West, France controlled the Mid-West, and England controlled the Colonies. After the Colonies won their independence, Jefferson bought the Mid-West (The Louisiana Purchase) from Napoleon for an outrageously cheap price. It was a deal he couldn't pass up, and he did it without Congressional approval. Spain eventually lost control of Texas and the West to Mexico seeking its independence, and Florida was annexed by the U.S. in 1822. President Polk would later fight an imperialistic war against Mexico, annexing the entire West, and Texas, after fighting it's own war of independence, would voluntarily join the Union in 1845. 

Ben Franklin, a high-ranking Mason of the Scottish Rite, was secretly working with French Freemasonry as a spy against the English. He made frequent trips to England and France during the years preceding the American Revolution, gathering intel to use against the English. The cartoonish history we have of this man is laughable, his loyalties were to French Freemasonry, not to any country. Remember, it was the French fleet that came at the last minute to help us win the Revolution, and this was not some altruistic mission to help the Colonies, it was because French Freemasonry had a special interest in America. It was Franklin, who, with two other Masons, was commissioned by the Continental Congress to design the Great Seal of America, the same one that showed up on the back of the dollar bill in 1935. As I pointed out in Part II, the Great Seal is loaded with esoteric symbolism of French and English Freemasonry. If you want to learn about the fascinating details of Franklin's intrigue against the English, watch the video below. The first half is about the identity of the Beast (spoiler alert), and the second half is about Franklin:

At this point I have to make have a comment on scripture. God told Joseph Smith that He raised up wise men for the purpose of establishing the Constitution of the United States. What He never said, and what is not in scripture, is that these "wise men" were good men. Solomon was wise, but not good, he was an idolator, steeped in the occult, and a womanizer. Ben Franklin was an idolator, steeped in the occult, and a womanizer. God can use the works of wicked men to fulfill His purposes. In fact, if you read this post I wrote a while back, you will see who I believe were the true Founding Fathers of this nation: everyday ordinary Christians trying to escape Europe, the same Gentiles that Nephi saw in vision. As much as I'm sorry to say it, most of the Founder's involved in the creation of the Constitution were Freemasons and not Christians, including one of my favorites, Thomas Jefferson. 

Daniel's "little horn," or rising nation, has a lot in common with ancient Rome, so much so, that it can be considered an appendage of that civilization. The Untied States, then, is John's Beast that was, and is not, but yet is. Here are the similarities between the U.S. and Rome as pointed out in Mr. Daniel's book:

  • Both were democratic republics.
  • Both incorporated separation of powers into governmental law. 
  • Both republics were based upon specific laws.
  • Both protected the rights of their citizens.
  • Both stressed that all citizens were equal (except the slaves).
  • Both had a sordid history of slavery.
  • Both operated under a capitalistic system. 
  • Both authorized abortions.
  • Both loved R-rated entertainment. 
  • Both created welfare states funded by taxes.
  • Both had a thriving business in lawsuits.
  • Both were the melting-pots of the world. 
  • Both promoted sports as a favorite national pastime. 
  • Both displayed its national emblem as a single-headed Eagle with wings spread. (Scarlet, p. 554)
There is one final test that Mr. Daniel points out that will help us identify the last-days Beast. In past posts I've gone over the symbolism used by secret societies that reveal their true identity and philosophies. Numerology and symbolism is the one thing that cannot lie. Lucifer is bound by some unwritten law to reveal his plans to the world, and this he does through hiding symbols and numbers in plain sight, guaranteeing him that only those who are looking for them will discover the truth. John the Revelator tells us the number of the Beast in a triad form: "six hundred threescore and six." Well that number just so happens to be a Roman numeral, and I'll let Mr. Daniel explain the rest:
The clue for identifying the Beast nation is found in a series of numbers that are listed as a triad of two numbers each (600 + 60 + 6), which adds up to 666. Strong's Concordance informs us that 666 is a Roman numeral.

Roman numerals, therefore, give the clue of how to identify the mark of the Beast. When the New Testament was written, Rome used a combination of six alphabet letters to make up all its numbers. The letters are: D C L X V I. (The letter "M" representing 1000 is a more recent invention. Originally it was CIC, with the right-hand C turned backwards. By connecting the two "C's" to the "I" in the middle, it gradually evolved into "M"). The six Roman numerals and their numerical vales are:

 D - 500

 C - 100

 L - 50 

 X - 10

 V - 5

 I - 1 

When we group each of the letters above in order of two's we discover the exact fulfillment of Revelation 13:8. DC equals 600; LX equals 60; and VI equals 6 - "Six hundred threescore and six." 

Applying this Scriptural wisdom we discover that the kingdom of the beast will be a revival of the old Roman empire. Whatever nation this kingdom is, the ultimate test for identification comes from understanding his mark, or symbol, which is 666 in Roman numerals. Scripture says it will be tied to the medium of exchange. (Scarlet, pp. 557-58) 

And as you can see on the back of this American one-dollar bill, there are Roman numerals and words all over it:

The Roman numerals at the bottom of the pyramid are MDCCLXXVI, and add up to 1776. The phrase Annuit Coeptis means, "he/she favors our undertakings," which I believe is a deference to Hermes, the androgynous god. And the famous phrase Novus Ordo Seclorum, of course means, "new order of the ages," or New World Order. 

As I've said before, Satan imitates and corrupts everything that God does, including the concept of promised-lands. Freemasonry has envisioned a secret destiny for America that goes all the way back to the lost empire of Atlantis. Their goals for a one-world government are based upon Atlantean myth and legend. English Freemasonry envisions their Atlantean empire as a theocracy, and French Freemasonry envisions theirs as an atheistic democracy, but as we shall see in the next post, both versions would be a totalitarian nightmare. You see dear readers, Satan has an imitation for everything, including God's Zion. The Atlantean utopia as prescribed by Freemasonry sounds great... in one breath they proclaim that everyone will be "free" to engage in higher learning, and there will be no crime and no poverty, while in the next breath asserting that those who rule will have absolute power over their subjects, and that all will live in communalism, which is communism. In this Atlantean nightmare, there will be no freedom, it will be Satan's plan incarnate on the earth, that Old Serpent, who attempted to dethrone God Himself and destroy the precious gift of agency bestowed upon us all. 

In the next post, as we conclude the description of the Beast empire, we will dive deep into this Atlantean utopia, and the secret destiny of America as envisioned by Freemasonry. You may be surprised to learn that the promised-land that Lehi and Nephi were led to has also been on the radar of Luciferians since the time of Columbus. America is both God and Satan's home-base of operations for the latter-days, and as the wheat and the tares grow together, the wheat will gravitate towards individual liberty while the tares embrace socialistic collectivism. The tricky thing is that Satan's democratic utopia will be presented in the dressings of liberty and freedom, but on the inside it will be nothing but "beastly" totalitarianism. Stay tuned for Part IV...

Postscript: Videos and Books for Further Study

Bill Cooper continues his series on Scarlet and the Beast, these will help you prepare for the next post. Sometimes he rants and that can be annoying, but there is good information presented here, most of it coming from John Daniel's book:

The Last Will and Testament of Cecil John Rhodes
, 1902, edited by William T. Stead, online archive

The New World Order, by A. Ralph Epperson, 1990. 

New World Order, by William T. Still, 1990. 

The Temple and the Lodge, 1989, by Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh. I recommended this one at the end of the last post and I do it again here because this book includes a detailed history of the Templar infiltration and influence over the Founder's of the United States, specifically Ben Franklin.  

Fire in the Minds of Men: Origins of the Revolutionary Faith, James H. Billington, 1980, online archive.
