Job under intregrity

Job 8:1-22

 Bilʹdad+ the Shuʹhite+ then said in reply:   “How long will you keep speaking like this?+ The words of your mouth are but a mighty wind!   Will God pervert justice, Or will the Almighty pervert righteousness?   If your sons sinned against him, He let them be punished for their revolt;*   But if you would just look to God+ And plead with the Almighty for favor,   And if you were truly pure and upright,+ He would pay attention to you* And restore you to your rightful place.   And though your beginning was small, Your future would be great.+   Ask, please, the former generation, And pay attention to the things their fathers found out.+   For we were born only yesterday, and we know nothing, Because our days on earth are a shadow. 

  10  Will they not instruct you And tell you what they know?* 11  Will a papyrus plant grow tall where there is no marsh? Will a reed grow tall without water? 12  While it is still in the bud, not yet plucked off, It will dry up before any other plant. 13  This is the outcome* of all who forget God, For the hope of the godless* will perish, 14  Whose confidence is in vain And whose trust is as fragile as a spider’s web.* 15  He will lean against his house, but it will not keep standing; He will try to hold on to it, but it will not last. 16  He is a moist plant in the sunlight, And his shoots spread out in the garden.+ 17  In a heap of stones, his roots become entwined; He looks for a house among the stones.* 18  But when he is uprooted* from his place, That place will deny him and say, ‘I have never seen you.’+ 19  Yes, that is how he will disappear;*+ Then others will spring up from the dust. 20  Surely God will not reject those who keep integrity;* Nor will he support* evil men, 21  For he will yet fill your mouth with laughter And your lips with shouts of joy. 22  Those hating you will be clothed with shame, And the tent of wicked ones will be no more.”

Wild Beast of Revelation

The Mark of the Wild Beast



John now sees how Satan maneuvers
the political parts of his visible organization
to cause the maximum suffering for the re-
maining ones of the seed of God’s woman.
(Genesis 3:15) He returns to describing “the
wild beast” itself:
And it puts under compulsion
all persons,the small and the great,and the rich
and the poor, and the free and the slaves, that they
should give these a mark in their right hand or upon
their forehead, and that nobody might be able to
buy or sell except a person having the mark, the
name of the wild beast or the number of its name.
Here is where wisdom comes in: Let the one that
has intelligence calculate the number of the wild
beast,for it is a man’s number;and its number is
six hundred and sixty-six.”—Revelation 13:16-18.


The wild beast has a name, and this
name is a number: 666. Six, as a number, is
associated with Jehovah’s enemies. A Philis-
tine man of the Rephaim was of “extraordi-
nary size,” and his “fingers and toes were in
sixes.” (1 Chronicles 20:6) King Nebuchad-
nezzar erected a golden image 6 cubits in
breadth and 60 cubits high, to unify his po-
litical officials in one worship. When God’s
servants refused to worship the image of
gold, the king had them thrown into a fiery
furnace. (Daniel 3:1-23) The number six falls
short of seven, which stands for complete-
ness from God’s standpoint. Therefore, a tri-
ple six represents gross imperfection.


A name identifies a person. So how does
this number identify the beast? John says
that it“is a man’s number,”not that of a spir-
it person, so the name helps to confirm that
the wild beast is earthly, symbolizing human
government. Just as six fails to measure up
to seven, so 666—six to the third degree—

is a fitting name for the world’s gigantic po-
litical system that fails so miserably to mea-
sure up to God’s standard of perfection. The
world’s political wild beast rules supreme
under the name-number 666, while big pol-
itics, big religion, and big business keep that
wild beast functioning as an oppressor of
mankind and a persecutor of God’s people.


What does it mean to be marked on the
forehead or in the right hand with the name
of the wild beast? When Jehovah gave Isra-
el the Law, he told them: “You must apply
these words of mine to your heart and your
soul and bind them as a sign upon your
hand, and they must serve as a frontlet band
between your eyes.” (Deuteronomy 11:18)
This meant that the Israelites had to keep
that Law constantly before them, so that it
influenced all their actions and thoughts.
The 144,000 anointed ones are said to have
the Father’s name and that of Jesus written
on their foreheads. This identifies them as
belonging to Jehovah God and Jesus Christ.
(Revelation 14:1) In imitation, Satan uses the
demonic mark of the wild beast. Anybody
engaged in everyday activities such as buy-
ing and selling is pressured to do things the
way the wild beast does, as, for example, in
celebrating holidays. They are expected to
worship the wild beast, letting it rule their
lives, so as to receive its mark.


Those who refuse to accept the mark
of the wild beast have had constant prob-
lems. Starting in the 1930’s, for example,
they had to fight many court battles and en-
dure violent mobbings and other persecu-
tions. In the totalitarian countries, they were
thrown into concentration camps, where
many died. Since the second world war,
countless young men have suffered lengthy
imprisonments, some even being tortured
and killed, because of their refusal to com-
promise their Christian neutrality. In other
lands Christians are literally unable to buy or
sell; some are unable to own property; oth-
ers are raped, murdered, or chased from
their native land. Why? Because in good
conscience they refuse to buy a political par-
ty card.John 17:16.


In some areas of the earth, religion is so
ingrained in community life that anyone
who stands for Bible truth is ostracized by
family and former friends. It takes great faith
to endure. (Matthew 10:36-38; 17:22) In a
world where the majority worship material
wealth and where dishonesty is rampant,
the true Christian often has to trust implic-
itly in Jehovah that He will uphold him in
pursuing an upright course. (Psalm 11:7; He-
brews 13:18) In a world awash with immo-
rality, it takes great determination to remain
clean and pure. Christians who fall sick are
often pressured by doctors and nurses to
break God’s law on the sanctity of blood;
they even have to resist court orders that
conflict with their faith. (Acts 15:28, 29; 1 Pe-
ter 4:3, 4) And in these days of rising unem-
ployment, it is becoming increasingly dif-
ficult for a true Christian to avoid work that
would mean compromising his integrity be-
fore God.—Micah 4:3, 5.


Yes, the world is a difficult place for
those who do not have the mark of the wild
beast. It is an outstanding demonstration of
Jehovah’s power and blessing that the re-
maining ones of the seed of the woman, as
well as more than six million of the great
crowd, are keeping integrity despite all the
pressures to break God’s laws. (Revelation
7:9) Unitedly, throughout the earth, may all
of us continue to magnify Jehovah and his
righteous ways, as we refuse to receive the
mark of the wild beast.—Psalm 34:1-3.

Seventh World power why still here, and for how long ?

Allow me to share some light on how divine intervention paved the way to its ascension. Spain was the dominating World power way before England, having and holding vast territories in the new World and other places in Europe. It controlled the water ways, commerce, trade and military superiority. it wasn't until a Leviathan of biblical proportion, time had come into the front stage. Many researchers and scholars agree that England was no match for the Spanish armada, and that after the eventual fall of the armada...not by man force, but some mysterious winds that agitated the waters that defeated the armada. England felt confident in claiming the spoils, but fell short on several occasions in making greater grounds against Spain. Still Spain remained a power England could not easily annex. Spain was never to be the same and weakened gave way to others powers that emerged.

Today the Anglo-binary power combined with her sister (America) enjoy a kind of exceptionalism, not that it has mighty powers or marbles of Its because a divine intervention has better plans for it. It had intervened in the late 1500's against counter ideology which in this case was Spain. But that has not change anything concerning its future in the balance, and the blood shed it has engaged in. From Genocide, slavery, human exploitation, the many wars it has fought against global populations. In the Holy book of Daniel chapter two (2) it talks about seven kings...and remember this article carries seven articles in series which I won't get into, because i'm only interested in the current Kingdom. I hope you find this of interest and further may hold the key to your many questions, and possible set one free.

 After the Spanish defeat In England, the boost to national pride lasted for years, and Elizabeth's legend persisted and grew long after her death. The repulsing of the Spanish naval force may have given heart to the Protestant cause across Europe and the belief that God was behind the Protestant cause.[54] This was shown by the striking of commemorative medals that bore variations on the inscription, "
1588. Flavit Jehovah et Dissipati Sunt" - with "Jehovah" in Hebrew letters ("God blew, and they are scattered"), or He blew with His winds, and they were scattered. There were also more lighthearted medals struck, such as the one with the play on the words of Julius Caesar: Venit, Vidit, Fugit (he came, he saw, he fled). The victory was acclaimed by the English as their greatest since Agincourt.[citation needed]
The English attempted to press home their advantage the following year, when the Drake–Norris Expedition of 1589, with a comparable fleet of English privateers, sailed to establish a base in the Azores, attack Spain, and raise a revolt in Portugal.[27] This expedition, led by Sir Francis Drake and John Norreys[54] raided Corunna but withdrew from Lisbon after failing to coordinate its strategy effectively with the Portuguese.[55]
Two more armadas were sent by Spain, in 1596 and 1597, but both were scattered by storms.[56]
The Spanish Navy underwent a major organizational reform that helped it to maintain control over its trans-Atlantic routes. High-seas buccaneering and the supply of troops to Philip II's enemies in the Netherlands and France continued, but brought few tangible rewards for England.[54]
The memory of the victory over the Armada was evoked during both the Napoleonic Wars and the Second World War, when Britain again faced a concrete danger of invasion.

It was reported that, when Philip II learned of the result of the expedition, he declared, "I sent the Armada against men, not God's winds and waves".[48]

Another aspect to consider in this paradoxical element is that the counter reformation was shaping in England and other parts of Europe while Spain remained largely Catholic. Setting all that in context form should gave greater light of why things happen that way. Nevertheless the seventh World power is marked and sealed for the hand of Almighty God to do away just like he has predicted and allowed all to function as kingdoms. If not for this balance America would have turn into an ash bowl. Powerful political enemies have amassed against it, and as I speak Russian and China are more then a match for all powers combined.

Concerning the British Empire, historian H. G. Wells noted: “Nothing of the sort has ever existed before. First and central to the whole system was the ‘crowned republic’ of the United British Kingdoms . . . No single office and no single brain had ever comprehended the British Empire as a whole. It was a mixture of growths and accumulations entirely different from anything that has ever been called an empire before.”

Historian H. G. Wells wrote: “This new Roman power . . . was in several respects a different thing from any of the great empires that had hitherto prevailed in the civilised world. . . . [It] incorporated nearly all the Greek people in the world, and its population was less strongly Hamitic and Semitic than that of any preceding empire . . . It was so far a new pattern in history . . . The Roman Empire was a growth, an unplanned novel growth; the Roman people found themselves engaged almost unawares in a vast administrative experiment.”
