"The Beast is NOT the Issue: The Dragon... Who Gives Power unto the Beast... is the Issue"

by John & Kelly Sielski
In context of The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, the "Beast" is not the issue; but the "Dragon" is the issue, because the Dragon gives power unto... enables... the Beast.  As Apostle John stands "upon the sand of the sea"; this is signifying something that is perceived from Ishmael's point of view, as if "standing in Ishmael's shoes".  Do we remember Ishmael's whole story?  How do the heavens appear over the waters of the sea?  Doesn't the water reflect the face of the sky?  Therefore, our perceiving a Great Fiery Dragon (with seven heads and ten horns) in heaven will project into the sea an Image of the same; even a Beast who, also, has seven heads and ten horns.  Like produces like.  This "Beast" is the ant-Christ spirit of mind, or attitude of heart, a "spirit" of self-promotion and self-preservation (and thus, self-righteousness); which "rises" out of our own defiled conscience of heart (sea), in a vain attempt to meet our Dragon-Father's or Pharaoh-Father's strict demands, performance requirements and/or obedience standards.  Why?  We think that we can earn our Heavenly Pharaoh's acceptance, approval, affirmation or validation.  Ironically, when we are under this influence, we will also seek the same from men. Therefore, when we "worship" the Great Red Dragon in heaven; we will also worship the Beast within ourselves, or our own ability to make and keep happy with us that Dragon-Father or Pharaoh-Father whom we perceive in Heaven.  This "spirit" is tied directly into the present envy, strife, hatred and animosity toward one another; and among all those who are claiming the name of Christ.  It is completely anti-Christ to claim "love for God", while we are separating and withdrawing ourselves from one another, as brethren.

Revelation 13: 2b-4 (KJV)
2 ...and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

Genesis 22: 16, 17 (KJV)
16 And said, By myself have I sworn, saith the Lord, for because thou [*Father-Abraham] hast done this thing, and hast not withheld thy son, thine only son [*by faith, Isaac]:
17 That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies;
