Now, in this age of artificial intelligence and hi-tech robotics, we have a more clear understanding what the "image" referred to in Revelation 13 actually may be. The "image" is a replicant: an artificially intelligent creation "made in the image" of either a living person or a dead person, a being that looks, moves, and behaves like the person in whose image he or she was created in. A phony, in other words ... a counterfeit whose purpose will be to deceive humanity and undo all the work the human being it will impersonate has done. The reason?
If the reason parallels what occurs in the film Metropolis, it will be to incite humanity to act against God, indeed to declare war on God and the Heavens, giving God a pretext to go to war with mankind and destroy a large percentage of the planet's human population ... AND to destroy all faith in the coming of His son, Jesus Christ.
In this video we see the real Maria preach of a coming "Mediator" who she recognizes as Freder and kisses. Freder's father Joh Frederson and Rotwang look on in secret and Joh, irate, orders Rotwang to make a false likeness of Maria with the robot in his laboratory.
In this video we see Maria's image replicated to the robot, who will become the false Maria. We also see her receive the order from Joh Frederson to undo all the work of the real Maria and sew discord among the people. She responds by shutting her left eye, smiles, and nods.
METROPOLIS CHARACTERS AND WHO THEY SYMBOLIZE
Joh Frederson = God
Rotwang, the Inventor = Ba'al
The Thin Man (appears in second video, but is not seen) = Satan
Freder is Joh's son, who unwittingly takes on the role of THE MEDIATOR due to a deception against Joh by Rotwang.
Freder/The Mediator = Jesus Christ
Maria = Woman of Revelation 12
False Maria/Hel Robot = The Whore of Babylon
Hel = The robot itself, before taking on Maria's image, is a crude likeness of Hel, a huge metallic bust in Rotwang's lab. Hel was a woman created by Joh for Rotwang to have as his wife. But Hel later cheated on Rotwang and had a child with Joh. Hel died giving birth to Joh's child, Freder.
Returning to the concept of the "image" in the Book of Revelation.
At the time "the image of the beast" is worshipped, the real man in whose likeness the image of the beast will be created will actually be DEAD and in HELL:
"The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is." (Revelation 17:8)
But it will not only be "the image of the beast" who imitates another, in that case one who is no longer alive, but also there will be an impersonation or "image" of a woman who is alive but hidden away. This false female will be the one known as "the Whore of Babylon."
In whose IMAGE shall the Whore of Babylon be created you may well ask? The Book of Revelation provides an excellent candidate for WHO the whore may be impersonating:
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up unto God and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
The Woman Clothed With the Sun (also known as The Woman of the Apocalypse) will not be dead, but will be kept safe and hidden from Satan and the governments and leaders who shall be in league with him. The places where she shall be given refuge will be in "the wilderness."
The whore of Babylon will either be 1) a human lookalike or 2) an artificially intelligent replicant who shall imitate this woman.
The same place where the Woman Clothed With the Sun will be in hiding: in "the wilderness."
"And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time ..." (Rev 12:14)
"So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns." (Rev 17:3)
Into the wilderness will the righteous Woman Clothed With the Sun go; and later, in the same wilderness, will be discovered a likeness of her: the Whore of Babylon, who shall come out of the wilderness to deceive the entire world and reign over the mighty city Babylon.
The wilderness is usually the desert or other barren place in Bible prophecy, not a heavily-forested region one might find in Europe or America.
"A great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads."
Compare this with the red dragon upon which the Whore of Babylon rides in Revelation 17:3:
"I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns."
Not only will the Whore of Babylon LOOK like the righteous Woman Clothed With the Sun, but it will appear as though she has TAMED the red dragon that persecuted the woman she is imitating.
In the late 1990s and early 2000s, many (myself included) believed it was the late Princess Diana due to the Pont d'Alma theory and rumors that she was carrying Dodi al-Fayed's baby at the time.
The problem with that theory, however, and quite obviously, is that Diana DIED.
The woman of Revelation 12 does NOT die, but goes into hiding in the wilderness. She is kept hidden and safe, but is not dead.
Unless, of course, Diana did not actually die, but is in hiding somewhere. If that is the case, she might conform to the specific details in the Revelation 12 scenario ... but only if the rumored child was male and survived. But one word of warning on this point: the Illuminati care little about details being exact in the real world. They could create an imitation of Diana and lie to us that she had been in hiding all these years. Of course the false Diana would then become the Whore of Babylon. However, I doubt God would allow the specific conditions in Revelation 12 to be violated or altered by men.
Even so, Diana was most likely the archetype the Woman Clothed With the Sun will resemble. She will likely be a humanitarian like Diana and glamorous like Diana. Also, the Roman goddess Diana was the goddess of the moon, and this is may be why the Woman of the Apocalypse is symbolized with "the moon under her feet." That reinforces the idea that she will be a woman quite similar to Diana.
But consider this. For Israel to be so important to world events in Bible prophecy, to be the hub about which the machinery of the world revolves, it must become more than simply the most powerful military nation in the Middle East. It must be a global power center of some sort, in league with a much larger alliance of nations. That would explain all the nations from the coasts of the earth in the Book of Jeremiah that come to the aid of Israel and ultimately bring about the eternal destruction of the land of the Chaldeans, that which was once Babylon, portions of which are now in Iraq and Syria.
The meaning of the twelve stars, beyond that, is not entirely clear yet. But it will involve Israel and probably the EU as well.
For that information we go back some 54 years to a vision the late psychic Jean Dixon experienced on February 5, 1962.
"As she gazed outside she saw, not the bare-limbed trees and city street below, but a bright blue sky above a barren desert. Just above the horizon was the brightest sun that she had ever seen, glowing like a golden ball. Splashing from the orb in every direction were brilliant rays which seemed to be drawing the earth toward it like a magnet. Stepping out of the brightness of the sun's rays, hand in hand, were a Pharaoh and Queen Nefertiti. Cradled in the Queen's other arm was a baby, his ragged, soiled clothing in startling contrast to the gorgeously arrayed royal couple. 'The eyes of this child were all-knowing,' Jeane says softly. 'They were full of wisdom and knowledge.'"
The Pharoah was Akhnaten, the monotheistic king of Egypt who worshipped the sun god Aton. Nefertiti was his queen consort. However, because this was a vision of a FUTURE event, these were neither Akhnaten or Nefertiti, but archetypes of two people who are either alive now or will be in the future.
Note that the woman is carrying a baby, one with all-knowing eyes "full of wisdom and knowledge." Sounds a lot like the "man child" the woman of Revelation 12 gives birth to.
The desert is "the wilderness."
The destiny of the baby in Jeane Dixon's vision is the same as the man child in Revelation 12:
"AND SHE BROUGHT FORTH A MAN CHILD, WHO WAS TO RULE ALL NATIONS WITH A ROD OF IRON; and her child was caught up unto God and to his throne." (Rev 12:5)
"Jeane shifted her gaze back to the baby. He had by now grown to manhood, and a small cross which formed above him began to expand until it 'dripped over the earth in all directions. Simultaneously, peoples of every race, religion, and color (black, yellow, red, brown and white), each kneeling and lifting his arms in worshipful adoration, surrounded him. They were all as one.' Unlike previous visions, which had gradually faded away from Jeane, this one moved ever nearer until she seemed to be in the very midst of the action, joining in the adoring worship. 'I felt a tiny seed ready to sprout and grow,' she says, 'But I was only one of millions of similar seeds. I knew within my heart: 'here is the beginning of wisdom.'"
NOT necessarily. 3.5 is a number to be found in various places in the Bible as 3.5 days, 3.5 weeks, 3.5 months, and 3.5 years. It is one possible number arrived at from "a time, and times, and half a time." In the 3.5 years reign of the beast it is a time of suffering (one year), two times of prolonged suffering (two years), and a six-month period of lessened suffering that is cut short or lessened by cutting it short (a year cut in half).
Thus, the woman FADES from view in the wilderness and is replaced by her son and by a new Church and its followers. This Church will face persecution for "a time, and times, and half a time." Yes, that could be 3.5 years, but not necessarily. It could, in fact, be a score of years (20 years), plus two score of years (40 years) and a half of a score of years (10 years). Three score and ten ... or 70 years. Plenty of time for the child to grow to be a man and become a great Christian king of the world and for an ensuing persecution to follow after his death.
70 years to a (formerly) angelic being who is immortal, like Satan, is a drop in the bucket. To us it is a lifetime, or the better part of a lifetime if we are lucky to live to be in our 80s or 90s. But to God and other immortal beings, even a century is but a blink of an eye.
Maybe Nostradamus was right and the end year will be approximately 2242 AD or 2243 AD. What if the year of the man-child's birth is 2018? That would leave 224 years. That would be 64 years as "a time," plus 128 years as "two times" (192 years), plus 32 years as "half a time" (224 years). 2018 plus 224 = 2242.
This latter period following the future, great Christian king's reign is mentioned in the Book of Daniel as "the latter time" ... "when the transgressors are come to the full":
Daniel 8:19:25: "Behold, I will make thee know what shall be in the last end of the indignation: for at the time appointed the end shall be. The ram which thou sawest having two horns are the kings of Media and Persia. And the rough goat is the king of Grecia: and the great horn that is between his eyes is the first king. Now that being broken, whereas four stood up for it, four kingdoms shall stand up out of the nation, but not in his power. And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up. And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
Will there be any time that might mark that future and final time as a precedent, as an archetype? We have been and are living in that time NOW, and have been for the last 37 years (since 1979 and the dawn of the computer age). There will be NO OTHER GENERATION LIKE OURS AGAIN UNTIL 2226 AD! And OUR GENERATION has not yet seen the completion of its own terrible design.
Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie Reportedly Plan Permanent Move To London To Save Crumbling Marriage
If this couple is destined to end like Charles and Diana, it may well happen in 2017 after months of trying to make their marriage work IN LONDON. Of course, in LONDON .. where Charles and Di UNTIED the knot.
Despite having had an oophorectomy to avoid getting ovarian cancer, reports on message boards can be found on the internet of women who became pregnant some time after having the procedure (varying accounts and varying lengths of time after the procedure). The human body, as is well known to scientists, has remarkable regenerative capabilities, more so in some individuals than in others. Scientists are even working on research to see if a human being can one day regrow a severed hand or limb or eye retina:
New stem cell therapy may regenerate lost limbs in a few years
Bear in mind that this is all speculation about Angelina Jolie. She may NOT be the Woman of Revelation 12 despite some similarities to Princess Diana.
For one thing, she has NO LOVE for Israel according to reports and has condemned the Jewish state on a number of occasions. HOWEVER, she is still loosely tied to the 12 stars of the European Union in her role as Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) as well as Honorary Dame Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George (DCMG).
Even so, it may well be another woman who fulfills this role, possibly one not even yet born.
Then again, if you believe this little bit of astronomy, a woman may well give birth to a man-child destined to rule the nations with an iron rod ... next year. Specifically, on September 23, 2017:
As for Angelina Jolie, if she is the next Diana, I don't see trouble ahead for her until August 2018 ... a year later. But if she is the Woman Clothed With the Sun, she shall escape whatever danger awaits her and go into hiding.
Although there are no plans to create an artificially-intelligent replica of her, there is allegedly a lookalike:
Angelina Jolie Lookalike Is Kylie Jenner's Model Mara Teigen, Who Is She? – Hall Of Fame Magazine
The point of all this finally being: Madonna, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, blah blah blah ... including worthy predecessors like Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Debbie Harry of Blondie, and many others ... none of these women are or ever were "the Whore of Babylon." The Woman of the Apocalypse appears in Revelation BEFORE the wicked woman of the wilderness, the great harlot, appears. I am now convinced Fritz Lang and company were dropping hints to moviegoers in 1927 that the Whore of Babylon will be an imitation of the righteous woman of Revelation 12.
These other women are nothing but pawns being used by the Illuminati, some of them willingly used, others unwittingly used, to get the global public ready for the real thing when she finally is "introduced" to the world.
Clearly they have been preparing us for the last over 100 years. They may well go on preparing us for another 200 years since the Illumnati plan to phase out the current generation through perpetual wars and mass immigrations in Europe and the United States, such as has occurred due to the Syrian Conflict (all planned) ... something known as "Creative Destruction" ... WILL BACKFIRE. One thing the Illuminati can always be depended on doing is to MISCALCULATE. Their neverending wars, with the US or Russia playing big bully to some crappy little country every ten years, will backfire and become World War III. And the only plan they have for that is to hide in underground shelters from the other 99% of the population that will BURY them alive in their own hotel-sized tombs.
What does this mean for Madonna and certain other female celebrities? It means they are all in incredible danger of ending up in news headlines as accidental deaths, suicides, or bizarre unsolved murders. Like Whitney Houston, Rebecca Zahau, or Amy Winehouse.
