(DEEL 1)

Die Sewende Dag Adventiste leer die nasies van die aarde dat dit Amerika is, maar kan dit reg wees?

Wat het YAHUSHA Johannes gewys ivm die dier?:

“En uit die aarde het ek (Johannes) ‘n ander dier sien opkom en hy het 2 horings gehad net soos ‘n lam en het gepraat soos ‘n draak.”

“And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.”
NOTA: Die ENIGSTE MANIER om die Skrif te verstaan is deur die HULP van die RUAH QODESH en deur die SKRIF ALLEEN.

Petrus skryf 2 Petrus 1:19-20:
“En ons het die profetiese woord wat baie vas is, waarop julle tog moet ag gee soos op ‘n lamb wat in ‘n donker plek skyn, totdat die dag aanbreek en die morester opgaan in julle harte; terwyl julle veral dit moet weet, dat GEEN PROFESIE VAN DIE SKRIF ‘N SAAK VAN EIE UITLEGGING IS NIE, WANT GEEN PROFESIE IS OOIT DEUR DIE WIL VAN ‘N MENS VOORTGEBRING NIE, MAAR DEUR DIE RUAH QODESH GEDRYWE, HET DIE PROFETE VAN YAHUAH GESPREEK.”


Die dier uit die aarde is soos ‘n lam [met twee horings], en sy woorde wat hy spreek is soos dié van ‘n draak!

Wie is die draak in die Skrif?

Openbaring 12:3
“En ‘n ander TEEN het in die hemel verskyn, en daar was ‘n groot vuurrooi DRAAK met 7 KOPPE en 10 HORINGS, en op sy koppe 7 KRONE; en sy stert het die derde van die STERRE van die hemel meegesleep en hulle op die aarde gegooi.

“And another SIGN was seen in the shamayim; and see, a great fiery red DRAGON having 7 HEADS and 10 HORNS, and 7 CROWNS on his heads. And his tail draws a third of the STARS of the shamayim and throws them to the earth. . .”



Wat sê die Skrif. . .?


Hier volg ‘n goeie verduideliking wat ‘n signs is?
“A mark by which persons or things are distinguished and made known. In Scripture used generally of an address to the senses to attest the existence of supersensible and therefore divine power. Thus the plagues of Egypt were “signs” of divine displeasure against the Egyptians (Exodus 4:8; Joshua 24:17, and often); and the miracles of YAHUSHA were “signs” to attest His unique relationship with Elohim (Matthew 12:38; John 2:18; Acts 2:22). Naturally, therefore, both in the Old Testament and the New Testament, “signs” are assimilated to the miraculous, and prevailingly associated with immediate divine interference. The popular belief in this manner of communication between the visible and the invisible worlds has always been, and is now, widespread. So-called “natural” explanations, however ingenious or cogent, fail with the great majority of people to explain anything. Wesley and Spurgeon were as firm believers in the validity of such methods of intercourse between man and Elohim as were Moses and Gideon, Peter and John.

The faith that walks by signs is not by any means to be lightly esteemed. It has been allied with the highest nobility of character and with the most signal achievement. Moses accepted the leadership of his people in response to a succession of signs:

e.g. the burning bush, the rod which became a serpent, the leprous hand, etc. (448/A); so, too, did Gideon, who was not above making proof of Elohim in the sign of the fleece of wool (Judges 6:36-40). In the training of the Twelve, YAHUSHA did not disdain the use of signs (Luke 5:1-11, and often); and the visions by which Peter and Paul were led to the evangelization of the Gentiles were interpreted by them as signs of the divine purpose (1648/A).

The sacramental use of the sign dates from the earliest period, and the character of the sign is as diverse as the occasion. The rainbow furnishes radiant suggestion of Elohim’s overarching love and assurance that the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy the earth (Genesis 9:13; compare Genesis 4:15); the Feast of Unleavened Bread is a reminder of Elohim’s care in bringing His people out of bondage (Exodus 13:3); the Sabbath is an oft-recurring proclamation of Elohim’s gracious thought for the well-being of man (Exodus 31:13; Ezekiel 20:12); the brazen serpent, an early foreshadowing of the cross, perpetuates the imperishable promise of forgiveness and redemption (Numbers 21:9); circumcision is made the seal of the special covenant under which Israel became a people set apart (Genesis 17:11); baptism, the Christian equivalent of circumcision, becomes the sign and seal of the dedicated life and the mark of those avowedly seeking to share in the blessedness of the Kingdom of YAHUAH (Luke 3:12-14; Acts 2:41, and often); bread and wine, a symbol of the spiritual manna by which soul and body are preserved unto everlasting life, is the hallowed memorial of the Master’s death until His coming again (Luke 22:14-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-28). Most common of all were the local altars and mounds consecrated in simple and sincere fashion to a belief in YAHUAH’s ruling and overruling providence (Joshua 4:1-10).

Signs were offered in proof of the divine commission of prophet (Isaiah 20:3) and apostle (2 Corinthians 12:12), and of the Messiah/Mashiah Himself (John 20:30; Acts 2:22); and they were submitted in demonstration of the divine character of their message (2 Kings 20:9; Isaiah 38:1; Acts 3:1-16). By anticipation the child to be born of a young woman (Isaiah 7:10-16; compare Luke 2:12) is to certify the prophet’s pledge of a deliverer for a captive people.”

i) a thing indication or suggesting a quality or state
ii) a mark, symbol, or device used to represent something
iii) a gesture or action used to convey information
iv) etc.

2) DRAAK/DRAGON (Slang/Duiwel/Satan) 
– Jesaja 27:1   “In die dag sal YAHUAH met Sy harde en groot en sterk swaard besoeking doen oor die Leviatan, die vinninge slang, en oor die Leviatan, die kronkelende slang; en HY (YAHUAH) sal die draak (Leviatan) doodmaak wat in die groot water is.”

H/S:    “In that day YAHUAH with His severe sword, great and strong, punishes Lewiathan the fleeing serpent, Liwiathan that twisted serpent. And He shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.”

Onthou 2 Pet 1:20.

a) Wie is die Slang/serpent? 
b) Wie is Leviatan/Liwiathan? 

a) Die slang/serpent is: Open 12:9 “. .die groot draak is neergewerp, die ou slang wat genoem word duiwel en Satan. .”; Open 20:2 “En hy het die draak gegryp – die ou slang wat die duiwel en die Satan is. .”

b) Leviatan/Liwiathan is: Psalms 74:13-14 “U (YAHUAH) het deur u sterkte die see geklief; U het die koppe van die seemonsters op die waters verbreek. U het die koppe van die Leviatan verbrysel. .”; H/S: “You (YAHUAH) divided the sea by Your might; You broke the heads of the sea serpents in the waters. You broke the heads of Liwiathan in pieces. .”

The HEBREW meaning of the word Liwiathan is “dragon”.

Wat simboliseer die see? Open 17:15 “. .Die waters wat jy gesien het. . .is volke en menigtes en nasies en tale.” 

3) KOPPE/HEADS (Major powers/Rulers/Governments)
Sien Open 17:3,9-10; Daniel 7:6; 8:8,22

4)HORINGS/HORNS (Koning/koninkryk)
Sien Daniel 7:24; 8:5,21-22; Sag 1:18-19, Open 12:12

5) KRONE/CROWNS (Rulers/Rulership/Sovereignty)
Sien Spreuke 16:31; Jes 28:5; Jes 62:3

6) STERRE/STARS (Angels/Messengers/Prince/Ruler)

Open 12:7-9, 4   “En daar het oorlog in die hemel gekom: Migael en sy engele het oorlog gevoer teen die draak, en die draak en sy engele het oorlog gevoer; en hulle (die draak en sy engele) kon nie oorwin nie, en hulle plek was in die hemel nie meer te vinde nie. En die groot draak is neergewerp, die ou slang wat genoem word duiwel en Satan, wat die hele wêreld verlei, hy is neergewerp op die aarde, en sy engele (sterre) is saam met hom neergewerp.” “En sy (die draak) stert het die derde van die sterre van die hemel meegesleep en hulle op die aarde gegooi. .”

H/S:   Revelation 12:7-9,4   “And there came to be fighting in the shamayim: Mika’el and his messengers fought against the dragon. And the dragon and his messengers fought, but they were not strong enough, nor was aplace found for them in the shamayim any longer. And the great dragon was thrown out, that serpent of old, called the devil and Satan, who leads all the world astray. He was thrown to earth, and his messengers were thrown out with him.” “And his tail draws a third of the stars (messengers) of the shamayim and thrown them to the earth. . .”
