If we truly want to understand “who is the restrainer,” then we must give attention to about what happened to Paul, Silvanus and Timothy when they were in Thessalonica. Fortunately the Holy Spirit made sure those details were recorded by Luke in Acts, where we see how the “Jews which believed not, [and] moved with envy, [and] took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.” This was no small commotion, for they “drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city,” and made charges against Paul, Silvanus, and Timotheus; that these whom Jason had received “that have turned the world upside down are come hither also… and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus.”

It is important to recognize that these are not minor complaints, but rather accusations of treason against both Caesar and Rome. Hence they were accused of having “troubled the people and the rulers of the city”  so that “when they heard these things and when they had taken security of Jason, and of the other, they let them go.” This means Jason and another brother was required to give money as a security, or bond, before they would let them go.

So I ask, does everyone understanding the seriousness with which Rome dealt with those who were seditious and traitors against Caesar? It was a guaranteed penalty of certain death, which is why “the brethren immediately sent away Paul and Silas by night unto Berea.” But that wasn’t the only trouble Paul had encountered on us journeys, before going to Thessalonica, Paul and Silas had been in Philippi where they had been apprehended, beaten, because of accusations of going against the customs of Rome there as well.

Those who have followed my blog for any length of time know that I believe that America is the prophetic “eight that goeth into perdition.” But for those who are here for the first time please let me briefly address a few points before we get in where New York City’s destruction is foretold in scripture as “the city of the nations fell.” This very post was ran back on July 4th under the heading “Will New York City be nuked this Fourth of July?” That was after Rep. Peter King, member of the Homeland Security Committee told Megyn Kelly that New York City officials are concerned about a dirty bomb attack on the 4th of July.

Revelation –  17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.  10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.  11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

It amazes me that I never hear anyone anywhere talking about the above passage in regards to the Beast of Revelations chapter 13, let alone connecting it to America. Yet when the angel says to John, “Here is the mind which hath wisdom…” you would think more people wanting wisdom and understanding of who the beast is would jump on this verse to find out what it all means. Yet the only people who seem to look at the verse and discuss it are people who think it all applies to the Catholic Church and that it deals with a succession of popes a long time ago.

While I don’t have time to get into The Eighth Beast and America again now, I do want touch on Washington D.C. and New York City real quick here in this post after hearing the alert. But first let me present a quick outline for those who want to look into this further on their own before we get into the heart of the matter.

Revelation chapters 13-18 are about the rise and fall of this eighth empire which can also be identified by its direct correlation with the nation of Israel. In chapter 13 the seven-headed beast rises up out of the sea which represents multitudes, nation and languages and tongues, meaning it is a nation of multiple ethnic backgrounds and cultures, a land of immigrants.

The eighth beast rises to its height of power the same time the preceding global superpower, England, is waning and declining from its zenith prior to the rebirth of Israel. All this happens because there was a war where one of the heads of the beast received a deadly blow but was able to recover and the second beast of Revelation 13 called down fire from heaven in the sight of the men and the consensus of the whole world was “Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

For the sake of brevity I am simply going to state for now that I believe there is strong scriptural and historical evidence the event of “fire from heaven in the sight of the men” was the world’s introduction to nuclear warfare as President Truman ordered the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki which brought an end to the WW2, at which time the British Empire was fading and Israel was about to be born again as a nation. For more information please review The Eighth Beast or America.

Let me be forthcoming in stating that I believe the position of the President Of The United States is that second beast which scripture states had “two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon” and “exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.” For while the succession of POTUS’s have tried to maintain the image of (a lamb) being for peace, history reveals they have actually been promoting the agenda of the dragon and constantly given to meddling in other sovereign nations and promoting self-serving wars.
