In my previous post “The Sea Beast and the Land Beast” I talked very briefly about the Sea Beast, the beast rising out of the sea. The description in Revelation contains so much more and it’s time to unpack the mysteries of the heads, horns, diadems, and blasphemous names written on the heads.
And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems upon its horns and a blasphemous name upon its heads.Revelation 13:1
Why should Christians be concerned about this beast? Because that is the beast that is allowed to make war with Christians, to conquer them, and to kill them.
Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and tongue and nation, and all who dwell on earth will worship it, every one whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that was slain.Revelation 13:7-8
The beast is so powerful that all those whose name IS NOT written in the book of life will worship it? Men worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?” Rev 13:4
If you are interested in making sure your name is written in the book of life, take heed. If you are interested in making sure you DO NOT worship the beast (or the dragon), take heed. Understand this beast above all others in Revelation.
I am the Virgin of Revelation. In me, the masterpiece of the Father is realized in such a perfect manner, that He can shed on me the light of his predilection. The Word assumes his human nature in my virginal womb, and thus can come to you by means of my true function as Mother.To My Beloved Sons, message 198, April 24, 1980
The Holy Spirit draws me, like a magnet, into the depths of the life of love between the Father and the Son, and I become interiorly transformed and so assimilated to Him as to be his Spouse.
I will bring you to the full understanding of Sacred Scripture. Above all, I will read to you the pages of its last book, which you are living. In it, everything is already predicted, even that which must still come to pass. The battle to which I am calling you is clearly described, and my great victory is foretold. For this reason, I repeat: do not fear; have confidence! In my Immaculate Heart, you will experience the joy and the peace that, even today, my risen Son gives to all of you.To My Beloved Sons, message 198, April 24, 1980
What did the “Virgin of Revelation” tell Fr. Gobbi about the beast that rose out of the sea? In message 405 she explains with the care of a mother and the confidence that the victory is already foretold.
In 1917 Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima said “in the end my Immaculate Heart with triumph.” In message 405 to Fr. Gobbi she says “my Immaculate Heart becomes today the sign of my sure victory, in the great struggle which is being fought out between the followers of the huge Red Dragon and the followers of the Woman Clothed with the Sun.” message 405b
“In this terrible struggle, there comes up from the sea, to the aid of the Dragon, a beast like a leopard.” message 405c
To Fr. Gobbi on June 3, 1989,Our Lady continues, “If the Red Dragon is Marxist atheism, the Black Beast is Freemasonry. The Dragon manifests himself in the force of his power; the Black Beast, on the other hand, acts in the shadow, keeps out of sight and hides himself in such a way as to enter in everywhere. He has the claws of a bear and the mouth of a lion, because he works everywhere with cunning and with the means of social communication, that is to say, through propaganda.”message 405c
It is very sobering to reflect on the fact that in 1989 we were told that the social communication would become the propaganda of our times. With Fake News leading the charge towards a great schism in the USA, is it no wonder so many are deceived. Even the church today is going through the struggles of a great schism, even greater than the schism of 1517 where a German monk took 9M from the church and led them into heresy.
For false Christs and false prophets will arise and show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.Matthew 24:24
From what happened in 1517 we can see that a false prophet arose from within the ranks of the church to lead astray even the elect, if that were possible. Are those that followed that German monk part of the elect?
Yet, I digress, back to the Black Beast and Freemasonry… What are the characteristics of the Black Beast, the beast that arises from the sea?
And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems upon its horns and a blasphemous name upon its heads.Rev 13:1
Are the ten horns, ten diadems and seven heads important? Are those symbols used in anyway to pull the children of God away from the true faith? The number seven is significant in the bible because it represents completion. God created all things in seven days. In message 405 to Fr. Gobbi, Our Lady reveals the meaning of the seven heads, “the seven heads indicate the various masonic lodges, which act everywhere in a subtle and dangerous way.”
She also explains the ten horns in this way. “Masonry rules and governs throughout the whole world by means of the ten horns. The horn, in the biblical world, has always been an instrument of amplification, a way of making one’s voice better heard, a strong means of communication.” Is it possible that many if not most of today’s media sources are ruled by Freemasons?
How high in the Catholic hierarchy are Freemasons? One person reached the pinnacle of Freemasonry by being elected the Grand Master. He describes how his life changed and he began following Jesus Christ to the Catholic Church in his podcast series here. He, above all other Catholics, understands Freemasonry and has done extensive research into those in the Catholic ranks who promote the ideals of Freemasonry.
He wrote a piece recently on why Pope Francis could be considered the “THE FREEMASON’S POPE” ?
And what did Our Lady say about the “blasphemous name upon its heads”?
The aim of Masonry is not to deny God, but to blaspheme Him. The Beast opens his mouth to utter blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name and his dwelling place, and against all those who dwell in heaven. The greatest blasphemy is that of denying the worship due to God alone by giving it to creatures and to Satan himself.To My Beloved Sons, message 405, June 3, 1989
The error of humanism is that it places onto the creature the worship due to God alone. Compassion is important and all are expected to abide by the corporal works of mercy. But the concern for the compassion of others could lead you to believe that it is more important make people feel comfortable about where they believe they are in their journey with Christ rather than helping to instruct them by providing slight corrections known as “admonishing the sinner” which is one of the seven spiritual works of mercy. Even worse would be to teach Catholics they do not need to attend Sunday Mass but watching in their homes is all Christ wants or is expecting. Christ expects us to hunger for Him above our own lives, and to receive “our daily bread,” the Eucharist, the source and summit of our faith. Humanism places concern for the creature above concern for the worship of God.
Mother Mary continues in message 405 by discussing the ten horns in contrast with God’s ten commandments.
If the Lord has communicated his Law with the Ten Commandments, Freemasonry spreads everywhere, through the power of its ten horns, a law which is completely opposed to that of God.
To the commandment of the Lord: ‘You shall not have any other gods but me,’ it builds other false idols, before which many today prostrate themselves in adoration.
To the commandment: ‘You shall not take the name of God in vain,’ it sets itself up in opposition by blaspheming God and his Christ, in many subtle and diabolical ways, even to reducing his Name indecorously to the level of a brand-name of an object of sale and of producing sacrilegious films concerning his life and his divine Person.
To the commandment: ‘Remember to keep holy the Sabbath Day,’it transforms the Sunday into a weekend, into a day of sports, of competitions and of entertainments.
To the commandment: ‘Honor your father and your mother,’ it opposes a new model of family based on cohabitation, even between homosexuals.
To the commandment: ‘You shall not kill,’ it has succeeded in making abortion legal everywhere, in making euthanasia acceptable, and in causing respect due to the value of human life all but disappear.
To the commandment: ‘You shall not commit impure acts,’ it justifies, exalts and propagates every form of impurity, even to the justification of acts against nature.
To the commandment: ‘You shall not steal,’ it works to the end that theft, violence, kidnapping and robbery spread more and more.
To the commandment: ‘You shall not bear false witness,’ it acts in such a way that the law of deceit, lying and duplicity becomes more and more propagated.
To the commandment: ‘You shall not covet the goods and the wife of another,’ it works to corrupt in the depths of the conscience, betraying the mind and the heart of man.
In this way souls become driven along the perverse and wicked road of disobedience to the laws of the Lord, become submerged in sin and are thus prevented from receiving the gift of grace and of the life of God.To My Beloved Sons, message 405, June 3, 1989
How much truer today are these words than when they were spoken in 1989? Have we seen recently where people “prostrate themselves in adoration” to false idols like Mother Earth, aka Pachamama? Have we heard people using God’s name as an exclamation as their favorite team scores a touch down or using “oh my” before God’s name as if it should be used improperly and without grace. Have we seen a new family model being setup based on cohabitation or accepting unions even between homosexuals? Have we seen more Catholics vote in 2020 for a candidate who openly supports abortion for any reason, restricting religious liberties from organizations like the Little Sisters of the Poor, and aiding the most aggressive communist country ever known, aka China? And they did that to the demise of the one leader who has fought more aggressively for pro-life issues than any other in the past 20 years.
It does appear the Sea Beast (the Black Beast) in cooperation with the huge Red Dragon, are winning the current battle between the dragon and the women clothed in the sun.
Message 405 to Fr. Gobbi is one of the longest because Mother Mary had much to cover. After describing the ten horns and the assault on the ten commandments by Freemasons, She then describes the “blasphemous name upon” the seven heads by describing the seven virtues and Freemasons seven capital vices.
To the seven theological and cardinal virtues, which are the fruit of living in the grace of God, Freemasonry counters with the diffusion of the seven capital vices, which are the fruit of living habitually in the state of sin. To faith it opposes pride; to hope, lust; to charity, avarice; to prudence, anger; to fortitude, sloth; to justice, envy; to temperance, gluttony.
Whoever becomes a victim of the seven capital vices is gradually led to take away the worship that is due to God alone, in order to give it to false divinities, who are the very personification of all these vices. And in this consists the greatest and most horrible blasphemy. This is why on every head of the Beast there is written a blasphemous name. Each masonic lodge has the task of making a different divinity adored.
The first head bears the blasphemous name of pride, which opposes itself to the virtue of faith and leads one to offer worship to the god of human reason and haughtiness, of technology and progress.
The second head bears the blasphemous name of lust, which opposes itself to the virtue of hope and brings one to offer worship to the god of sexuality and of impurity.
The third head bears the blasphemous name of avarice, which opposes itself to the virtue of charity and spreads everywhere the worship of the god of money.
The fourth head bears the blasphemous name of anger, which opposes itself to the virtue of prudence and leads one to offer worship to the god of discord and division.
The fifth head bears the blasphemous name of sloth, which opposes itself to the virtue of fortitude and disseminates the worship of the idol of fear, of public opinion and of exploitation.
The sixth head bears the blasphemous name of envy, which opposes itself to the virtue of justice and leads one to offer worship to the idol of violence and of war.
The seventh head bears the blasphemous name of gluttony, which opposes itself to the virtue of temperance and leads one to offer worship to the so highly extolled idol of hedonism, of materialism and of pleasure.To My Beloved Sons, message 405, June 3, 1989
Fruit of living in the grace of God
Virtue opposed by the blasphemous name on a head of the beast
Again, it does appear the Sea Beast (the Black Beast) in cooperation with the huge Red Dragon, are winning the current battle between the dragon and the women clothed in the sun.
Mother Mary concludes her message to Fr. Gobbi with hope and the assurance that victory is imminent.
Now you understand how, in these times, against the terrible and insidious attack of the Black Beast, namely of Masonry, my Immaculate Heart becomes your refuge and the sure road which brings you to God. In my Immaculate Heart there is delineated the tactic made use of by your heavenly Mother, to fight back against and to defeat the subtle plot made use of by the Black Beast.
For this reason I am training all my children to observe the Ten Commandments of God; to live the Gospel to the letter; to make frequent use of the sacraments, especially those of Penance and Eucharistic Communion, as necessary helps in order to remain in the grace of God; to practice the virtues vigorously; to walk always along the path of goodness, of love, of purity and of holiness.
Thus I am making use of you, my little children who have consecrated yourselves to me, to unmask all these subtle snares which the Black Beast sets for you and to make futile in the end the great attack which Masonry has launched today against Christ and his Church. And in the end, especially in his greatest defeat, there will appear in all its splendor, the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world.“To My Beloved Sons, message 405, June 3, 1989
For those wanting to research further the consecration to Jesus, through Mary, may want to purchase the book by Fr. Gaitley, The 33 days to Morning Glory. Or listen to what St. Maximilian Kolbe defined in his 9 day devotion.
With this knowledge about the details of the beast that arose from the sea, we can now move on to what the Mark of the Beast represents. If the beast is Freemasonry, what could the mark on the hand or forehead represent?
Come back in a short while for that discussion.
