Little Horn: the Power of the Media Beast
“I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn… in this horn were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking great things. I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake…” – (Dan.7:8,11).
The little horn is the Antichrist-Beast – “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies: and power was given unto him” – (Rev.13:5). The little horn, the nobody, becomes the biggest horn of power in history. He will be the first truly world emperor, ruling ruthlessly as a great beast, a predator devouring weaker human prey. Human beasts that rule nations, and especially emperors, are a million times more cruel than any four-legged beast, using his military.
The horns of the Beast speaks of his power, as Satan gives him his power – “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast…” Again “And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings… but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power, and strength unto the beast” – (Rev.17:12,13). And the greatest power of the Beast is not his political power or having the greatest military power in world history, but it’s the power of the worldwide media he will control. Every dictator takes over control of the media as he cannot have a free press revealing his evil. His words, and his alone, must deceive and mesmerize the people. Hitler used the radio and video and controlled the media and then ruled the world with his propaganda. The ‘little horn’ is the Antichrist-emperor of the reformed Roman Empire, the ‘legs’ and feet in (Dan.2). God created Italy like a leg to show us this truth. The P.M. of Italy today is Silvio Berlusconi, who has a media grip in Italy. He has a media empire, and owns three TV channels, a daily paper, a weekly news magazine, and Italy’s biggest publisher – media power, amen.
And God is showing us this with the ‘little horn” and the power of the media Beast. In the horn of power were a man’s eyes and a mouth speaking great things. With the ‘eyes and mouth,’ God is showing us ‘sight and sound, visual and audio.’ President FDR used the power of the radio to be elected four times and President JFK effectively used the TV and now we have President Obama, the world’s most powerful leader, who is called the ‘Media President’ because of his very effective use of the media, especially video which has both sight and speech – the eyes and the mouth. Obama is the celebrity-in-chief. He is front and center in the camera’s eye worldwide wherever he goes. He commands worldwide media power, and he’s using it more often than any president in the past and he has excellent communication skills – he has a mouth speaking great things. O the power of worldwide words.
Big Brother, the dictator in Orwell’s book ‘1984,’ completely controls people through the TV and surveillance, and the U.S. government has cameras all over the place. But the Beast will use a tracking mark in people’s foreheads and right hands to totally control everyone. You cannot buy or sell without it. We have more video today than ever before, primarily on three screens – TV, internet and cell phones. But 99% of screen time is still in front of the TV set at home. TV is the most effective means of communication known to mankind. The average American has his TV set on 7 hours a day. TV has become the eyes and mouth of communication to the world. The TV picture tube is a camera tube for taking pictures or images and it is commonly spoken today of being in ‘the camera’s eye.’
Tom ‘Horne,’ the head of AZ education, is the ‘horn’ that showed me this truth, when he took a firm stand against Obama speaking to millions of school children on Sept. 8, 2009. Horne said “the important part of educating students is to teach them to read and listen critically. The White House materials call for a worshipful, rather than a critical approach to his speech”, and the speech was on TV. Obama’s campaign election strategy was to win especially the youth vote, which he did. He warmed up crowds with the Devil’s rock bands and then mesmerized them with words. Stay away from Obama. Do not listen to him on the radio or watch and listen to him on TV or video or in person.
Satan’s’ man, the Antichrist, will use words to deceive, and ensnare people. He has a mouth speaking great and deadly poison that will lead to the ‘worship’ of the Beast, and receiving his mark – 666 and to the lake of fire. God warns about his deadly words in both O.T. and N.T. – beware. He has the same deadly roaring mouth as Satan, the roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour, with his mouth. Stay away from the power of the media beast. Throw the wicked TV out of your home and heart. Beware of the walking, talking image of the Beast on video and TV, that makes him seem like he’s alive and allows him to speak worldwide and deceive billions of people. “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things… And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” – (Rev.13:5,15). Beware of the power of the media Beast.
(Rev.16:13) says – “And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.” The filthy, blasphemous mouths of the Beast and his False Prophet, like their father Satan, leads the world to a fiery nuclear Armageddon and the lake of fire. They are deadly false teachers. “But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of” – (2 Pet.2:1,2). Antichrist-Beast will teach deadly, deceiving lies mostly in the political realm, and the False Prophet Beast will teach lying, deadly doctrine in the religious realm, and the lost world will hear them. “They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them” – (I Jn.4:5). But the Tribulation saints of God won’t listen to the two beasts because they are no longer a part of the world. They will not swallow their propaganda. Eve killed herself and her husband by listening to the deceitful, deadly words of Satan – “ye shall not surely die” – (Gen.3:4). She had no business being anywhere near the forbidden tree of death – she swallowed the lie of Satan.
It is written – “That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightiest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee” – (Prov.22:21). Again – “…thy word is truth” – (Jn.17:7). God’s word is truth and certainty in a world that is growing more and more uncertain and deceitful. Only the man saved by Christ has the Holy Spirit of truth in him who guides the saints in Gods’ Word of truth. We are not simply to accept the KJ Bible as the Word of truth; we are to be absolutely certain that it is the only true Word of God and we are to be known for having that conviction. Not only are we to be known as the people who totally trust in the inspiration, infallibility, and inerrancy of the KJ Bible, we must also be able to expound the truth of it to those who come to us for guidance.
The KJ Bible is God’s unadulterated truth; because its Author cannot lie. In it there is no error. Because it is God’s Word of truth it is the final authority. By it everything is tested. It’s truth separates it from the Devil’s lies which plunged man into sin and death. Then beware of error: as poison is to the body, so is error to the soul. Shun those who deny any part of God’s truth as you would a deadly plague. Only by believing God’s Word of truth will you be able to discern Antichrist’s lies. As God’s watchman I’m blowing the ram’s horn trumpet about the little horn, and the power of the media Beast, and my trumpet must not give an uncertain sound – (I Cor.14:8). Take heed to this warning. And remember that the horn of oil was used to anoint the king – horn of power.
The nation of ‘Media’ allied with the nation of Persia to conquer Babylon “In that night was Belshazzar the King of the Chaldeans slain. And Darius the Median took the kingdom” – (Dan.5:31). And the powerful ‘media’ controlled by the president-Beast will help to destroy Babylon-USA that now rules Babylon-Iraq.
Also, the effective use of the media helps the president to impose his will on congress over the war-making powers that makes a president a king. FDR, the first imperial president, who ruled for over 12 straight years, was also the first to make effective use of modern communications. His ‘fireside chats’ with the American people over the radio, brought his voice into millions of living rooms and since then we have the TV and computer etc, being used very effectively by Obama. The ability of presidents to command the air waves should not be underestimated in explaining our imperial presidency.
Presidents have long enjoyed, and employ to the hilt, what is called the ‘bully pulpit,’ to be seen and heard by millions of people worldwide. The ‘bully pulpit’ was coined by President Teddy Roosevelt, and it is the use of the prestige and public authority of the president to advocate for a particular agenda or idea, not by legislation, but by persuasion of the American people. Public speeches using the media and presidential appeal makes his ‘bully pulpit’ a worldwide power. It is using the president’s position as a means to push his agenda and beliefs and as a force for social change, not simply via laws and executive orders, but by speeches, programs, and appeals directly to the people. When Obama went into Bruce Warren’s mega-church and stood in the pulpit with TV cameras going, and tells Christians that sodomy is good, and changes the civil podium into a church pulpit, now that’s a ‘bully pulpit’ – amen. No pastor should ever allow a politician to speak in the church pulpit – it’s deadly. Watch for the little horn having eyes and a mouth speaking great things – watch for the power of the media beast. The phrase ‘on the horn’ means ‘on the phone,’ and there are video phones also. So we get the ‘eyes and the mouth’ on the horn – amen. The Beast and False Prophet, using modern mass media, will have the greatest propaganda in history, making Hitler and Goebbel’s propaganda puny by comparison.
Are you saved and born again? If not, repent of your sins and believe in Christ in your heart by faith, and you will receive forgiveness of sin and and be saved from hell, and become a new born again creature in Christ having eternal life. “For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – (Rom.6:23). Again, “That which is born of the flesh is flesh: and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, ye must be born again” – (Jn.3:6,7).
