The Clay Dragon – The Beast Is Here

Hi friends,

China, wow, who would of thought, the Beast is rising. We are facing a nightmare that we can’t seem to wake up from. Those we thought were ours friends turned out to be our enemy. And they have near about got us. Seriously, somehow we like missed all the warning signs. In our horrifying dream, that is reality, we are faced with a dragon ready to devour us. That is really not cool.

It seems that this Beast has bought off most of our government and somehow is already munching on our vital organs without us even being aware we were prey. This thing is fixing to go in for the kill. This is really scary.

It seems that this Beast has yummed up lots of our allies as well. They are all in. Their governments drank the cool-aid as well, or atleast a lot of money to purchase plenty of cool-aid for their future. Unfortunately, this happy feeling of security does not extend to “We the people.” We the people were the things sold along with our private property and families. I don’t even know what to say about this treachery.

Well, maybe there is one small thing to say about it. At
least we do know the end of the story. That is the good part. It’s just that the middle part and the climax that are not very fun. This is one of those books that would be best just to skip to the last chapter and be done. But alas,
sense this book is the book of His-story, we get to walk through it.

One blessing is that there is really a large amount of
information shared with us from scripture about this Beast. The first thing to note is that there are actually seven kingdoms listed. China is only the fierce
one that tramples the whole earth. This end times collection of bad actors is shown in two location in scripture. They are shown individually in one and
collectively in the second. A leader will rise to assume the rains of this mess. There is a lot about this character as well. But that would be another conversation. This discussion will just go over the nations as presented and
the possible understandings about them.

Before looking at the manifested beast in reality it is necessary to note who the real Dragon is pulling the strings behind-the-scenes. Of course this is the Devil, also known as Satan the adversary. He spends his time devouring individuals by tempting them to disobey God and then running to tattle on them to God when they mess up. One change that occurs in his job description, happens just before the nation Beasts manifest in our face. You see the Devil actually loses his ability to tattle on us. God chunks him out of heaven and will not let him back in. That part of the story is in Revelation chapter 12, in case you would like to read all the details. Anyway, this chunking out event makes the devil wrathful. This creates a problem for all of us here on earth. The dragon gets really busy trying to destroy everything with a special emphasis on Christians.

Now back to what we are watching happen. As I mentioned earlier, there are two visual allegory presentations of this coming governmental destruction machine. Let’s start with the one shown in Daniel chapter 7. Here’s the trick. It is indeed an allegory. That means we will have to guess at what the animals mean. And yes, that means it is actually just a guess. But, we can make an educated guess. So here goes. How I am going to look at this system is using the permanent members on the UN Security Council. That does not mean I am correct, it just fits really nicely.

Up first is a Lion
with Eagles wings
. This would be England and America. If this guess is correct, then we are in for some action. I say this because the eagle’s wings get plucked off the lion. I wonder if this might mean that we are somehow
removed from this governmental system.

Second is a Bear,
likely Russia. Its job is to devour much flesh. Sounds about correct to me, but who knows.

Third is a Leopard
with four heads and wings
. This is likely France as a representative of the EU. That is the reason for the multiple heads. Please remember this is just a
guess…

Finally there is the dreadful horrible Beast that has ten horns, possibly China. Somewhere in the process
a set of three of these horns are swapped out for a very mean little horn that I personally think is the false prophet listed in Revelation.

One thing to note about this view collectively is that
because the leopard has four heads, if you add up the heads and horns in this allegory you get seven heads and ten horns. That will match to allegory in
Revelation that we look at next.

So, here is Revelation Chapter 13, the second allegory. A beast rises up out of the sea having seven heads and tens horns, sound familiar… The beast is like a leopard, has feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion. The Devil gives this thing its power. That is why all these world leaders have to do all this strange sacrificing junk of innocent people. Their god is literally the Devil. He has very nasty tastes.

There is also a false prophet that is added to this mess. He shows up as a second beast with two horns. I do wonder if this is referencing the small horn of the first allegory in Daniel. It’s a three for three thing, but we’ll have to wait and see.

The ten horns are what give us a clue about China. You see, in Chapter two of Daniel we are shown the ten horns represented as ten toes of a statue. These toes are made of iron and clay. These substances represent kingdoms. The Iron represents the old Roman Empire and but the mystery nation is the clay.

Let me introduce you to the Terracotta clay soldiers. You
have probably never heard of them but if you do a search for “terracotta soldiers” you will see that they were soldiers made of clay in 246 BCE. The pits in China that contained the terracotta clay soldiers were discovered in 1974. Yes, Clay is associated with China. Surprise!
What if the Clay means that the ten horns could be an extension of the nation
of China?

That would explain what we are witnessing happening right now. The Beast is rising.

There is one really big happy about these ten toes that are partly iron and partly clay. If you look them up in Daniel chapter two you will see that it is in the days of these ten king’s That a stone cut without hands
crashes into the statue and grinds it to powder. The stone then becomes a great mountain and covers the whole earth. That would be Jesus setting up his kingdom
on earth. That is actually a really good thing.

U.S. Hits 20 Million Cases as COVID Variant Spreads

Jan. 1, 2021 — The United States started 2021 they way it ended 2020: Setting new records amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

The country passed the 20 million mark for coronavirus cases on Friday, setting the mark sometime around noon, according to Johns Hopkins University’s COVID-19 tracker. The total is nearly twice as many as the next worst country – India, which has 10.28 million cases.

Along with the case county, more than 346,000 Americans have now died of COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. That is 77% more fatalities than Brazil, which ranks second globally with 194,949 deaths.

More than 125,370 coronavirus patients were hospitalized on Thursday, the fourth record-setting day in a row, according to the COVID Tracking Project. Going by official tallies, it took 292 days for the US to reach its first 10 million cases, and just 54 more days to double it, CNN reported.

Meanwhile, 12.41 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been distributed in the U.S. as of Wednesday, according to the CDC. Yet only 2.8 million people have received the first of a two-shot regimen.

The slower-than-hoped for rollout of the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines comes as a new variant of the coronavirus has emerged in a third state. Florida officials announced a confirmed case of the new variant – believed to have originated in the United Kingdom — in Martin County in southeast Florida.

The state health department said on Twitter that the patient is a man in his 20s with no history of travel. The department said it is working with the CDC to investigate.

The variant has also been confirmed in cases in Colorado and California. It is believed to be more contagious. The BBC reported that the new variant increases the reproduction or “R number” by 0.4 and 0.7. The UK’s most recent R number has been estimated at 1.1 to 1.3, meaning anyone who has the coronavirus could be assumed to spread it to up to 1.3 people.

The R number needs to be below 1.0 for the spread of the virus to fall.

“There is a huge difference in how easily the variant virus spreads,” Professor Axel Gandy of London’s Imperial College told BBC News. “This is the most serious change in the virus since the epidemic began,” he added.

An Uncanny Sequence of Events – Horsemen of the Apocalypse

By Dean A.

Posted Thursday, December 17, 2020 at 01:40 pm EST

Hi Friends,

This past year, 2020, feels like a byword at this point to me. It actually feels like a word I can’t say, well should not say. You see, I am a Christian. As I have watched this past year unfold, the word apocalypse also came to mind, along with the above mentioned byword. The more that has happened around the world the more a prophetic puzzle is coming together. Really, there are some significant current events that are aligning with ancient words.

Here is why this information could be very helpful. If you understand the puzzle pieces from prophecy you can have a heads up to make appropriate decisions. From my personal experience, it is very time consuming to unravel the many passages about what is going on. So, I am going to set forward the comparison of scripture with current events so you can contemplate them.

Event One – Coronavirus Outbreak 2019 – The word corona means crown.

Event Two – Conflict on many levels of humanity worldwide.

Event Three – Damage to food production, storage, and distribution worldwide with financial stress.

Here is why these three events in the order they have unfolded actually match the sequence of the opening of the seals in the book of Revelation.

Seal One is opened – A white horse is sent out. The rider has a bow and a crown is given to him. His goes out conquering and to conquer

Seal Two is opened – A red horse is sent out. The rider is given a great sword to take peace from the earth.

Seal Three is opened – A black horse is sent out. The rider has a pair of balances in his hands and he says a measure of wheat for a penny.

Here is the connection between the events and the seals:

One is the concept that the rider of the white horse is given a corona (crown) and he goes out to conquering and to conquer. If you consider the effect of the Coronavirus it has weakened the economic systems of the nations of earth. Now, the governments are much more vulnerable to dramatic change that could usher in a
completely new governmental structure.

Two is the
concept that conflict is showing up at so many levels in humanity. The rider of the red horse takes peace from the earth. It now is starting to be normal to see images of anger and destruction very wide spread on earth. There are even international conflicts that are showing up.

Three is the food insecurity problem. While everyone was focused on the virus really ugly things were happening in the food production and harvesting sectors. At a worldwide level there have been natural disasters that have lowered the food supply. The black horse rider says mentions food and money. We also see a
devaluing of currency that would make food prices go up. When the two things are put together it is going to cause suffering to lots of people worldwide.

In conclusion, here is the very unhappy thought, the fourth seal that is opened sends out the pale horse. His rider is death and he is given authority of one fourth of the earth. Death uses the first three seals ( Plague, Violence and Famine ) to kill. The beasts of the earth are also mentioned as causing death. We have not seen this horse become visible yet, but if it does it would be helpful to understand what is happening.

And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see. And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.

And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see. And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

Morning Routine: Stave Off Dullness With These 5 Workouts

Nod your head if you’re a morning person, no right? We guessed it! We don’t blame you though, it’s the super possessive bed that just can’t let you go. But here’s a fix to balance the love affair between your bed and an active day. You can thank us later by sharing this post with a sloth friend of yours.

Things you need: 

15-20 minutes of your day, a yoga mat, willingness to get out of your bed leaving behind your lethargic counterpart, and consistency. That’s all!

How to start:

Take a deep breath, get off that bed gently and now that you’re on your feet, let’s get it started.

1. Surya Namaskar

This is the first step to warm up your body and get those muscles ready for an active day. The easiest stretching exercise that benefits your body in numerous ways is – Surya namaskar. Being popular from the 20th century, this asana is easy to do and quite a kick-starter for your morning. 

Do 3-5 circuits of Surya namaskar.

2. Push-Ups

 

It’s time to shake that arm and hit the floor (no, we are not dancing, yet)! Push-ups help to strengthen arms, chest, and triceps. Remember to inhale as you lower your body towards the floor and exhale as you pull your body up. The correct posture is to always align your hands to your shoulder distance. If you’re a newbie, you can start off by bending knees and doing push-ups. To make this fun and fruitful, increase your count every day, challenge yourself and your body will thank you!

You can do as much as your body allows but take it slow and increase your count gradually. Do 3 sets of this.

3. Lunges

No, don’t be scared – it’s gonna be worth it! Lunges are super effective in strengthening your lower body like legs, glutes, buttocks. Visualize those well-shaped legs you always wanted and that’s enough motivation to do lunges. Keep your feet shoulder length apart, now take a step forward and bend your knees. Make sure that your one knee is aligned with your toes, while your other knee is almost touching the floor. Repeat this with your other leg. 

Start with 8 to 10 reps, and slowly increase it to 12-15 reps in one set.  Do 3 sets of this.

4. Bicycle Crunches

You can’t possibly miss out on working on your abs, right? Now, this exercise is fun (well, almost) it helps to strengthen your abs muscle and the rectus abdominis. Now, it’s almost similar to doing basic crunches but with added bicycle movements of legs. Watch the reference below on how to do it the right way. 

You can start with 5 sets of 10 reps and gradually increase the count.

5. Jumping Jacks

We saved the easiest and the fun (for real) exercise for last! We hope jumping sheds off the dullness just right to get you going for the day. It’s great for your cardiovascular health and calves. Keep your feet together and jump while extending your legs and arms. Get back to the original position, repeat! P.s – Michelle Obama loves jumping jacks!

Do it for 45 secs to 1 minute for starters.

We are done! Yes, that’s all it takes to make your morning energetic, your body charged up and your mind running to do great things! Now go conquer the world, champions!
