A Big Part
A key to understanding the Apocalypse. They reigned with Christ a thousand years. The Byzantine Empire has all the pieces. Babylon the Great. Seven Heads. Ten Horns. Two Beasts. All the pieces fit. The numbers fit. They fit with Daniel. This is where you start.
A vision not in chronological order. In chapter 9 and 11 we have the beast coming out of the “bottomless pit” and in chapter 20 the beast is being cast into it. Victorinus was the first to suggest this theory of recapitulation. The bottomless pit is also consistent with the beast that was, is not, and yet is. The two beasts are really the same.
A Common Beast
A second beast of the Apocalypse. John knows Daniel knows beasts. The beast which he 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. The “ten horns” also ties them together. Numbers tie history to the fulfillment of prophecy.
A Great City
A beast that was, is not, and is yet to come. Constantinople can be found no more at all. It comes with two beasts. It started with the Roman Empire and ended with the Ottoman Empire a thousand years later.
A Christian Empire
A reign with Christ and not of Christ not found in the bible. The Byzantine empire started by the rider of the white horse with a capital that can be found no more at all. All the pieces of the puzzle can be found here. 666, ten horns, seven heads, seven hills, five fallen kings, and two beasts consistent with Daniel’s four beasts.
A Horn of Plenty
A connection to Daniel. The “ten horns” of the fourth beast of Daniel are tied to the second beast of the Apocalypse. The ten dynasties of Islam must be consistent with Daniel as well as with the Apocalypse. They are. They fit. The source, Islamicart, is no longer available but a hard copy of it has been saved.
A Reason To Believe
A prophecy fulfilled by using numbers to connect it with history. Babylon, the beasts, the thousand years, seven heads, ten horns, etc. are named. “Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.” As the end approaches, all will be revealed.
A Fit with Numbers
a thousand year empire starting with the seven dynasties of the Roman Empire and ending with the tenth dynasty of Islam. The first beast, Rome, whose deadly wound was healed was replaced by the second beast Islam. The Byzantine Empire fits with all the numbers you can trust. You can’t trust interpretation.
A Thousand Years
a beast at the end. The Byzantine Empire was preceded by the Roman Empire and ended by the Ottoman Empire, the tenth dynasty of Islam. The ten horns that shall hate the whore. The seven heads are the seven dynasties of the Roman Empire. Another fit. What about the number 666? Will that fit?
A Great City
a beast that was, is not, and is yet to come. Constantinople can be found no more at all. It comes with two beasts. It started with the Roman Empire and ended with the Ottoman Empire a thousand years later.
