Author and theologian, Steve Wohlberg, had immersed himself in eschatology for over 40 years. One of his areas of expertise has been identifying the lamblike beast as described in Revelation 13:11… A beast that Wohlberg believes represents the United States.
Do Parallels exist?
Wohlberg bases his opinion on the parallels found in Revelation 13 and Daniel 7. It describes the rise of four beasts: the lion, bear, leopard, and dragon.
“Daniel 7:23 plainly says that these beasts represent four mighty nations which scholars for centuries have applied to Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome,” says Wohlberg. “A beast in prophecy represents a great nation, and the lamblike beast in Revelation becomes a mighty nation in the end times as it rises ‘out of the earth.’ The four beasts of Daniel 7 all rose out of the sea, or water, which Revelation 17:15 says represents vast multitudes of people. In contrast, America’s rise in a sparsely populated region perfectly fits ‘out of the earth.’ The ‘lamblike’ part indicates that this is a new nation, with Christ-like features.”
Wohlberg believes that a nation having “two horns without crowns” in contrast with Revelation 13:1 describes the U.S. as well. He says that it is an indication of a democratic nation as opposed to a monarchy with a distinctive separation of powers.
End times approaching?
Wohlberg also believes that recent evens reveal some plausible end times prophesy coming into light.
“The fact that the U.S. has recently helped broker a peace agreement between Israel and the UAE once again reveals its strong influence as the mighty nation described as having ‘two horns like a Lamb,’” says Wohlberg. “Yet prophecy predicts that in the closing moments of time, the U.S. will deny its constitutional principles of freedom and ‘speak like a dragon.’ I believe we are beginning to see this unfold right now. The pandemic has shut down businesses and churches, bringing constitutional issues to the forefront. It is certainly not far-fetched to imagine that if the world continues descending into crisis times, that just like Covid-19 has been used as a reason to shut down much of the world, even so could a future, larger ‘public emergency’ be used as a reason why our constitutional First Amendment rights should be trashed.”
In Steve Wohlberg’s latest book, Approaching Armageddon, he goes into the validity of the prophesy within the first opening chapters. Wohlberg then focuses on Jesus’ prophesies regarding end times, and outlines them in detail for the reader. He illustrates how New Testament prophesies support Old Testament predictions. Also how current events are now fulfilling prophesies found in Revelation.
Approaching Armageddon details the biblical battle of Armageddon. It includes the meaning, where it happens, who is involved, and ultimately, who will be the victor.
“When the dust settles,” Wohlberg declares, “a fabulous future of hope and love awaits those who choose to be on God’s side.”
