In recognition of the need for further proof that Yasser Arafat is The Beast of Revelation 13, I submit the following manuscript. For lack of a good format in which to write this article I will make it in the form of questions and answers. I will translate a few riddles in the book of Daniel and in the process bring them together and show that Arafat can be the only man alive who can be the Beast spoken of in Revelation 13
Daniel 7:7 - After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth; it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
Daniel 7:8 - I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things.
Commentary: The nice thing about this verse is that it is
interpreted in the same chapter. This version though, is of very great
importance. Namely because it describes the little horn as plucking up three of
the first horns. The bible translates these verses as follows.
Daniel 7:20 - And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was stout than his fellows.
Daniel 7:21 - I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;
Commentary: These verses say basically the same thing only now instead of the word PLUCKED UP in reference to the three horns the word is FELL. In both sets of verses the little horn speaks very great things. The next three verses say the same thing in yet another way. This time the word used in reference to the three kings is SUBDUE. The point is that these words must mean the same thing in all these verses. The Strongs concordance translation of plucked up, fell and subdue is as follows. Plucked up - pluck up by the roots. Fell - to fall down. Subdue - abase, humble, put down, subdue
Commentary: These verses in Daniel and almost identical to Revelation 13
QUESTION : What two kings has Yasser Arafat already put
down or humbled or have been discharged from service due to the discontent of
the Israeli people.
Daniel 8:9 - And out of them came forth a little horn,
which waxed exceeding great, toward the south, and toward the east, and toward
the pleasant land.
Daniel 11:23 - 24 expands on this idea. It actually tells
what is being done. He is entering the provinces of Israel and scattering to his
people the spoils and riches.
Daniel 8:19 - Behold, I will make thee know what shall be
in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be.
I hope some of these observations have been helpful. Here is a quick summary. Without using the seventy week timeline, these other observations also prove that Yasser Arafat is the Beast of Rev 13. The most important fact derived from the timeline is the 42 month window of opportunity that Arafat and the Palestinians have used to condemn Israel numerous times in the United Nations. The Muslims will not rest until East, Jerusalem is once again in their hands. Furthermore, I'm sure that they won't stop there.
