I Don’t Do Math

Posted on June 18th, by Vicky in Revelation 17:9-18. 1 Comment

My degree is in English and I’m a writer by trade. I’m a just free range syllable slinger. Numbers just ain’t my thang. The cogs in my brain machine seize up when John starts listing off ten horns, seven hills, ten kings, no wait, seven, I mean eight. It’s no surprise then that my eyes gravitate toward these number-free words in this passage: “. . . the lamb will conquer them, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings. Those with him are called and chosen and faithful.”

But I think it’s more than their numberlessness that attracts me to these words. Among the terrifying imagery of Revelation, I appreciate this reminder of the Truth–our God reigns. He’s always true to himself and to his people. His true love conquers all. That’s something I know I can “count” on.

    In his foundation speech of June 20 1950, Robert Schuman communicated that the achievement of democracy was inevitable. Yet as a bible believing dispensational economist, I believe that the EU is ordained of God to emerge as a democratic deficit Federal Super State, the very model of empire that is to be reproduce in every one of the world’s ten regions, to the point where eventually each will have its own king, Revelation 17:12; yes ten kings for each of the world’s ten regions. Furthermore, it’s God’s will that the World’s Sovereign, rise to power in the Eurozone, Revelation 13:5-10, and that he be accompanied to power by the World’s Seignior, that is top dog banker, who in providing seigniorage, that is moneyness, takes a cut.

    The beast regime of regional governance and totalitarian collectivism, with its seven heads occupying in each of mankind’s seven institutions, and its ten horns ruling in the world’s ten regional zones, presented in Revelation 13:1-4, is rising from sovereign insolvency and banking insolvency of the nations, and is making landfall in the Eurozone, occupying with feet of a bear in EU banking supervision in Frankfurt Germany; with mouth of a lion in NATO headquarters in Brussels; and camouflage of a leopard in ongoing technocratic governance in Greece, in ECB banking supervision from Berlin, and in nannycrat fiscal rule from Brussels enforcing budget rules demanding more austerity in Spain and Italy.
