Bible prophecy reveals events of our time and world-shaking events soon to change your life. A major world-shaking event is foretold in the symbolic language of a mysterious, world-dominating, wild beast.
Beginning this issue, The Good News is publishing, serially, Editor-in-Chief Herbert W. Armstrong’s newest booklet Who or What Is the Prophetic Beast?
Who or what is the wild “beast” of the Apocalypse, or book of Revelation, chapters 13 and 17? What does Bible prophecy reveal about world events now leading to Armageddon and the end of this age?
This series of articles deals with governments and wars that will bring this world to its final end.
The Bible is God’s book of history, prophecy and revealed knowledge of God’s purpose and master plan for humanity from its beginning on into eternity.
But the Bible is primarily a book about the chosen nation of Israel, and other nations that have come into direct contact with Israel.
We know little concerning nations, or whether there were nations on earth, prior to the great Flood. But soon after the Flood, Nimrod founded the city-states of Babylon, Nineveh and others. In due time such nations as Egypt, Assyria, Babylonia, the Aramean states, Israel, Phoenicia and others developed in the Middle East, By the end of the seventh century B.C. King Nebuchadnezzar had founded the first world empire or union of nations.
The Bible does reveal the history, and prophecy from now of the system of gentile world empires starting with Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylon on to the Second Coming of Christ, as well as the history and yet future prophecy concerning Israel. This series of articles will cover the true significance of these two systems of nations, and what it means to us today, as well as what is prophesied for the imminent future.
First, then, who or what is the mysterious wild beast of Revelation 13 and 17? If you have his mark, you must suffer the seven last PLAGUES! Is he a mysterious superman world dictator yet to appear? Is he the antichrist—or a government—or a church?
