Deadly Wound Was Healed When Babylon Rebuilt

deadly wound was healedDeadly wound was healed by ancient Babylon being rebuilt becoming the eighth kingdom “one of the seven” and it is upon this Great City the Harlot Babylon sits (Rev. 17:7-11). Everywhere else in Revelation ἡ πληγή “the plague” (wound, kjv) is a punishment by God (Rev. 9:20; 11:6; 13:3, 12, 14; 15:1, 6, 8; 16:9, 21; 18:4, 8; 21:9; 22:18). That fits the death of ancient Babylon, not a single event but repeated warfare gradually caused the city to be deserted becoming little more than a sand dune after the Moslem conquest.

The Beast having the seven heads is the end time Ten Horn Grecian Roman Empire that rises from the sea of humanity. Globalist ecstasy reigns when the Dragon and his fallen angels appear on earth masquerading as the extraterrestrial “designers” of life on planet earth, promising to ascend humanity to a higher level. The strong delusion known as the ancient astronaut theory will be believed because what restrained Satan and his angels from appearing visibly, and doing great signs and wonders in support of his lies, is out of their way (2 Thess. 2:6-12).

To understand this vision correctly we must distinguish the “wound by a sword” that was survivable (Rev. 13:14) from the lethal wound to the head that is healed. And we must heed John’s allusion “I stood upon the sand of the sea” (Rev. 13:1) to Daniel 7:2 for contents of that book are required to correctly interpret Revelation.

Daniel sees King and Kingdom as a single “beast” (Dan. 7:17, 23), and so does John who doesn’t pause when transitioning from “another beast (2342 θηρίον therion)
coming up out of the earth” to the king (false prophet) of it, for “the remainder of this pericope (Rev. 13:11–18), it/he is referred to only by a series of eight third-person singular verbs (Rev. 13:11[2x], Rev. 13:12[2x], Rev. 13:13[2x], Rev. 13:14, 16) and two occurrences of the pronoun αὐτός (Rev. 13:14, 15). This figure is elsewhere referred to as the “false prophet” (16:13; 19:20; 20:10), which clearly conveys the role the author assigns him.-Aune, D. E. (1998). Revelation 6–16 (Vol. 52B, p. 755). Dallas: Word, Incorporated.

Confirming this, Grecian Roman Empire is called “he” in Rev. 13:4 because the “man of sin” Chancellor is the head of it. However, at midweek he morphs into the Antichrist Son of Destruction (2 Thess. 2:3-4; Dan. 9:27) and so the Empire now has its Emperor “mouth” speaking great things (Rev. 13:5). What is said thereafter applies equally to the King and his kingdom, or in this case, Emperor and his revived Roman Empire.

So the wound by the sword the Roman Empire receives is when its rebuilt capitol city Babylon is destroyed, but he survives (Rev. 13:14). He wasn’t healed of this wound at all. Rather, he severely weakened but then Britain and America (the beast that had two horns like a lamb), formerly champions of freedom and free markets, formerly Christian…now rise up to strengthen the Antichrist Beast and take away the freedom and free markets in the world (Rev. 13:15-17).
