How deceived are we part 2

Satan’s subtle way of deceiving the whole world is by having the fourth beast to change times and laws.
2. Change of times
One of the ways which Satan has succeeded in deceiving the whole world is by giving his power, his throne and great authority to the fourth beast, which is the Roman Empire as predicted by the apostle John who wrote saying, “Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.’
“Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon (Satan) gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon (Satan) who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:1-4).
Note carefully that the predictions says that all the world marveled and followed the beast, and because they all followed the beast, they are automatically worshiping the dragon (Satan) who gave his power and authority to the beast. Now to those who may not be familiar with the biblical term “Beast” in the book of revelation, this is what it signifies, “Those great beasts, which are four, are four kings which arise out of the earth.” And, “The fourth beast shall be A fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces” (Daniel 7:17, 23).
History has proven that the four beasts are synonymous to the image which the king Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream and later interpreted by Daniel who said to him; “You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay” (Daniel 2:31-33).
Then Daniel further said to 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 wherever the children of men dwell, or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your hand, and has made you ruler over them all — you are this head of gold. But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another, a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth. And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay” (Daniel 2:37-43).
So then, according to history, the first beast or kingdom represented by the head of gold was the Chaldean or Babylonian Empire ruled by king Nebuchadnezzar, around 605-506 BC, then came the second beast or kingdom which was the Persian Empire around 509 BC, then the third beast was the Grecian Empire, known as the golden age around 461-431 BC, and the fourth beast or kingdom was the Roman Empire, around 200 BC, and became divided in 395 AD, with the West collapsing in AD 476, and the East around 1453.
Therefore, according to biblical history the Roman Empire is the beast or kingdom to whom Satan the dragon has given his power, his throne, and great authority, and inadvertently the whole world is worshiping the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” and these are some of the ways the whole world has been deceived in worshiping the beast and the dragon.
• Beginning of a new day
It is stated quite clearly that, when God re-created the earth for man’s existence, that the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. The earth at this point was in complete oblivion, time was not in existence, then, the Lord God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night” (Genesis 1:3-5).
Therefore, the advent of time began with the light which God called day, and God further endorsed this rule by saying, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so.’
“Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness” (Genesis 1:14-18).
When Jesus the Lord God who created the heavens and the earth walked on the earth as the Son of Man He said, “Are there not twelve hours in the day? If anyone walks in the day, he does not stumble, because he sees the light of this world. But if one walks in the night, he stumbles, because the light is not in him” (John 11:9-10).
From the creation of time we see that a complete day consist of two periods, a period of light which is called day, and a period of darkness, which is called night, therefore, how logical, sensible, practical and truthful it is to believe that, the period between midnight and six O’clock in the morning be referred to as morning and the beginning of a new day! Where did this idea originate? And how did we all come to accept and adopt this rule?
The way the world reckons time today is not the way time was originally reckoned: For example, on the Jesus Christ’s was crucified, it is stated that, “from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:45-46).
So what time exactly is the sixth to the ninth hour the day? The sixth to the ninth hour of the day is from twelve O’clock to three O’clock in the afternoon. Today under the delusive system from the sixth to the ninth hour is between 6 am to 9 am. So the question is which one that is right?
There is also another biblical example of how time should be correctly reckoned. It was on the day of Pentecost when the crowed marveled saying, “we hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.” So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “Whatever could this mean?” Others mocking said, “They are full of new wine” (Acts 2:11-13).
But the apostle Peter, standing up with the eleven apostles, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words. For these are not drunk, as you suppose, since it is only the third hour of the day” (Acts 2:14-15).
So again I beg to ask the question, what time is the third hour of the day? According to the time which God ordained for man to follow, the third hour of the day is nine O’clock in the morning.
It is amazing to see how a world with such brilliant minds accepting and endorsing such a plane, hideous lie, this could not have been feasible except that the majority of the people of this world have been deceived; remember, a deceived person is one who has been led to believe a lie as truth, and so the one who has deceived the whole world is the great dragon, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, he has deceives the whole world, and the beast to whom he has given his power, throne and great authority has been promulgating his lies.
