The Image To The Beast

The image to the beast is formed of the ten kings. More appropriately it is formed of the 120 possible choices of three kings from the ten. Of the remaining seven, one sits enthroned in the seat of Christ, as "Death", and the remaining six follow as Hell after with each of the six aligned to one of the five laodicean churches and the synagogue of satan. The king in the seat of Christ is as a mediator, properly "Death" with whom the churches have made their covenant in the last days - with the framework of this image, the device of satan found in those three kings and the king sat as "Death" is the part corresponding to "The beast".

These three kings are the first four horses of the seals, and the fourth or pale horse reveals the rider of all four to be this "Death". That is an important distinction.

We may represent the four "kings" that are in collision with the fixed elements and congruences:

d = {e,f,g}
e = {d,f,g}
f = {d,e,g}
g = {d,e,f}

In the octal, each singleton on the left corresponds to a choice of unity, so that a balance may be found with say, e = 1. Thus Giving a synthesis of 'd' and 'g' in the manner; {e,f,g} => {d,f,g} <= {d,e,g} with the common element 'g' as wine at every seat at the table and the element "e" as oil which is absorbed or that lightens the two sides, (as balances being lightened). The result is the synthesis in the centre corresponding to that "fact" 'e'.

Note that the assignments of oil and wine are reversed if one chooses to synthesize to g = {d,e,f}.

There are two statements arising from each pair of thesis/antithesis (the two sides of the balance) - that the resulting pair of possible syntheses are also another "balance" which would result in synthesizing our original pair. So truly there are 6 ways to choose a pair of elements from 4, and the balances of;



Are actually only one pale horse, likewise inversion of the thesis/antithesis with that of their possible syntheses is possible also for the others




So although there are six ways to choose a pair from four elements, The fourth part which is in opposition to the third's apparent synthesis is also itself a synthesis or consensus - a compromise. In ushering in the method it has brought the decision to go with plan A or plan B, the king sat as "Death" may oppose every set of syntheses proposed until He arrives at the right column of the following.

d=>e<=f opposed by g
d=>e<=g opposed by f
f=>e<=g opposed by d

resulting in (with no particular order on the left)
d=>f<=g opposed by e

The right column results in the last synthesis that if opposed, results at the original synthesis. By agreeing with g over {d and f} then f over {d and g} and d over {f and g} it is clear logically that there is no agreement unless the disagreement is over the method of the dialectic used - resulting in the last line where the only possible logical decision is to reject the method applied to the three elements in the right column, resulting in the original synthesis. Clearly arguing against the method with the method is counter productive.

The image to the beast is then a decision making process that processes the decision makers.

The position of "Death" - to take the contradicting fourth view is to always be "processed" if one disagrees with the method but takes part in it. There are six such positions, each arising in a new thesis/antithesis, dividing the 12 arrangements possible into a agree or agree to disagree situation.

Once a decision is reached in this sixfold manner, as it were judging between what is good for Peter or for Paul, the remaining six churches act with each other to factor down to A5 and the three kings that decide whether there is "doctrinal" room for the uptake of an antagonism, so that the "thesis/antithesis" takes the place of a permutation and its inverse, and the synthesis in the centre takes the place of A5.

There is missing from the five one of the six churches, which we may identify as that church that has already got that doctrine, which the remaining five are being processed to accept. For lack of a better choice we will call this the source of leaven.

Then we have 660 possible "temptations" as we did with the carnal self of man - we also have the same situation here. A church sees another church permit some doctrine of the source of leaven, and rallies to get it carried as acceptable over the other remaining four churches. The image results in the thesis/antithesis being weighed and accepted or not accepted as universal. The matter however is not of this uptake or not, but of the process used - the man in the place of "Death" is sat as God (Christ) in the temple of God, showing himself to be God. (Changing laws and times).

Then there are 666 possible pale horses for any fixed octal - the "one hour" that the ten kings rule with the beast. (see the amalgam 666 section, the "666 outside of Christ" page.) Likewise the man sat as "Death" has a sixfold mind judging a system that numbers 660 as do the senses. He is in the seat of God, and is truly ruling (over the church) as the beast (government). The individual in the church worshipping under this system does so in acceptance of the judgements made by "Death" and so increases his carnal number from 660 to 666 in his acceptance of the mark. It is a damnable peril. There is no forgiveness for sins in that church.

Now we have identified the image, It remains to simply state that the four churches Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos and Thyatira are in this system. The fifth church Sardis is half in and half out: The fifth element of the Holy Spirit in view this "hour" in Christ (as at at the right hand of His Father) is at war in heaven with the star that fell (to the earth) having the key to the bottomless pit. Also, the sixth 'church' philadelphia has exited completely and is replaced with the source of leaven, and the sabbath rest in Christ is replaced by the image system itself.

There is no safety in numbers.

Truly it is said of the church, "They have made a covenant with death, and with hell are they at agreement." Death is the instant of the fall, and Hell is the 666 of their acceptance following after in approval. Likewise, as Death is numbered 666, there is no safety for that son of perdition.

Bringing in this system to the churches is to bear the mark of the beast to them. To have the name of the beast is to accept it, and to have the number of the beast is to find pleasure, (to worship) in it.

A quick run through of the four horses of the first four seals shows that the possibility of further falling away is opened up as the sequence accumulates.

The first horse provides an antichrist with a similar "rest" to a christian, it shows that there is a possible relationship or brotherhood between the governments of the earth and what is in effect, the church. The "crown" granted antichrist is one of religious authority in agreement with what is the church of the time.

The second horse provides two conflicting views against a single religion, these views are irreconcilable and represent how nations go to war as antichrist in the name of Christ, each asserting that only their way is the only way, when neither have the truth - they are both antichrist.

The third horse shows that there is a third position of reconciliation between any other disagreeing pair (as above) aside from the reconciliation in Christ that makes men brethren under God. The third position is the synthesis of the other two and makes the statement that God is irrelevant to man, that man can solve his own disputes himself under satan instead of being united by their faith. It is not a brotherhood, but an ongoing dialogue. The church is invited into the dialogue in order to promote growth.

The fourth or pale horse is the full system of the image, where the above has happened to the full and the only place at the table will never be offered to God or men of God; but only those who "buy and sell" their doctrine by worshiping the beast, having the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
