One world government and religion - Revelation 13.

One of the most misunderstood little words in the bible is the word ALL. People also tend to disregard the words EARTH and WORLD. Also keep in mind that I look at this in the light of the two horned beast representing the Sunni and Shia sects of Islam, and ISLAM IS a worldwide religion.

Revelation 13 is a great chapter to show how the word ALL is used differently in scripture, and how the "experts" have misinterpreted it.

'Pas and holos' are the two most common words for ALL in the NT and they are used 7-8 different ways.

Verse 3 uses the word, 'holos', verses 7, 12, and 16 use the word 'pas'. It also uses the word ge for world which has a variety of meanings and often implies a region. Since the word the 'HOLOS' is used with 'ge' it 'could imply a region, but I suspect it implies the entire planet. HOLOS/ALL means ALL more than the many other words for ALL.

To show you how misleading some translations are look at how this one
Rev: 13:3b And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And ALL the world marveled (amazed) and followed the beast.

"Followed after the beast" is NOT in the original text. The KJV has this one right...

"And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast."

The word ALL in verse 3 is 'holos' and unlike the word 'pas' it means EVERYTHING. If a man who was once dead from a literal and fatal head wound and were to 'resurface,' yes, the entire world would marvel (be amazed).

V.7 "And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over ALL kindreds, and tongues, and nations."

In verse 7 the word 'pas' is used and it has a limited meaning of ALL.

FYI - In the interlinear, 'conquer' is used and translated overcome in the KJV, and 'power' is translated 'authority'.

The question now becomes "does this verse imply the beast will make war with and overcome all the saints on earth, and will he have authority over ALL kindreds, (tribes) tongues, (languages) and Nations? (people)"

Absolutely not! The verse implies that the beast only makes war with, and only overcomes the saints which he has power and authority over, (in his kingdom) NOT all the saints on the planet! This MAY have worldwide implications because the radical followers of the Islam (beast) already persecute and kill Christians. (more tan you think) In other words, he conquers - and has authority over those mentioned WITHIN his kingdom and possible those across the world esp. in Muslim dominated countries. This verse does NOT imply he's a global dictator ruling a one world government!

Another thing to note. The word POWER in verse 2 (devil's power) means strength,(ability in the interlinear) the word power in 7 and 12 means authority, the power of influence.

V.12 Speaking of the two horned beast. "And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed."

When the word ALL is used with the article, like it is in verse 12, it means the whole of one object. What is that object? The power/authority of the (Islamic) beast. NOT authority over all people on the entire earth.

ALL in verse 12 is 'pas', and it means 'each and individually'. What is verse 12 saying? He exercises ALL the authority of the 7 headed 10 horned beast and causes the earth - and THEM - Muslim's that dwell therein to worship the FIRST beast - the Mahdi. Looks like he will demand worldwide worship from Muslim's.

This DOES NOT imply that everyone on earth (all is not used) worships the beast. It does imply everyone - Muslim's - subject to and under the authority of the first (Islamic) beast. That means the Islamic false prophet will demand that all Muslim's worldwide worship the Mahdi.

V. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

The KJV does no justice to verse 16. It omits the word THE 6 times.

This is how it looks in the interlinear...
And IT is making/causing all the little ones and the great ones and the rich ones and the poor ones and the free ones and the slaves...

Keep in mind that when the word ALL is used WITH the article like it should be in verse 16, and like it did in verse 12, it means "the whole of one object." So what is verse 16 saying? What is the object? The object is all those he 'causes' or are under the beasts' authority. He causes ALL (Muslim's) who (worship the beast, V.15) who are small or great - rich or poor - free - or slaves, to take the mark. NOT everyone on the entire planet!

Don't let the word ALL mislead you. Verse 16 doesn't imply the entire planet will receive a mark but only those under the authority of and within the kingdom of the false prophet.

The forehead and the right hand have significance in Islam. They wear turbans and their forehead repeatedly hits the mat. The harlot of Revelation 17 has Babylon the Great written on her forehead. Fanatical Muslim's like to show off their zebiba. And the mark may be as simple as having the zebiba, or wear a turban that has the Islamic symbol saying, "there is no god but Allah." or people must carry a Koran in their right hand....in order to buy or sell. Is it coincidence that according to Muslim scholars the Koran has 6,666 verses in it!

This is the mark.

What is a zebiba? The zebiba or 'raisin' is a patch of hardened skin that forms on the forehead of fanatical Muslims from their head repeatedly hitting the mat. A Muslim's forehead hits the mat at least 35 times a day in submission to Allah resulting in over a million prostrations in a lifetime. One strange coincidence is that according to two Islamic scholars, the Koran has 6, 666 verses in it. It may be required to carry in their right hand when purchasing or selling in the Mahdi's Caliphate.
