Do you like geography ? Take a look at our earth globe from 1980s. When you look down to the earth from North Pole facing the Soviet Union below and the United States above you can see a shape of the USSR resembling a running leopard from the East Sea towards Europe - its head is in the western part of the Soviet Union.
What John the Apostle saw in his vision and only from God Yahweh such vision could come was the end-time political map that will duplicate the ancient times of great powers hostile to God .
The Soviet Union of the period 1984 AD - 1991 AD - 1999 AD which is the period of the great spiritual tribulation had 7 republics in the western part and they were the heads of the red beast: Estonia,Latvia,Lithuania, Russia, Belorusia ,Ukraine , Moldavia. The 8th head of the beast was one of the seven heads and that was the Russian Republic as it had small part in the west as the Kalinningrad Region.
And since all the heads are identified it is revealing that at the period 1984 AD - 1991 AD which is a core of the end-time era the leader of the Red Beast - the Soviet Union was Michail Gorbaczew who had a red stain on his forehead ! This was a unique event that underscored the fact the Soviet Union was the manifestation of the red beast of the Apocalypse.The enmity directed towards God of the Bible is that Red beast and all who oppose the end-time servants of God Yahweh and Jesus Christ bear the mark of the red beast. For that to happen there had to be the true christian religion revived and taught to the world.
We must identify 10 external expressions of 10 horns of the red beast . If the beast was accurately identified there must have been the 10 horns of the beast and we look for them on both sides of the red beast running.The two sides with horns . And it was in 1984 AD-1991 AD. 6 horns were: Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia , Rumania, Hungary,Bulgaria and 4 horns in East Asia: North Korea, Mongolia,People's Republic of China, Vietnam. All countries had the same social systems like the Soviet Union and were all linked geographically.
All in all we have a wonderful proof we came to the end- time era as the Bible predicted. Go to my posts and see why I am writing about the period : 1984 AD - 1991 AD.
Why Albania is omitted ? Because Yugoslavia with his unique form of capitalism seperated Albania from the cluster of the communist states in the Eastern Europe.That is why we can speak about 6 horns of the red beast in Europe.And we had exactly 4 communist states in Asia who were joined geographically to the Soviet Union. Under such extremely complicated circumstances the prophecy of the Bible was fulfilled !It will never be repeated in mankind's history throughout the eternity. That is why we have a solid foundation to believe the end of the world should occur within a few years .The last human social system built with human hands without God Yahweh ended horribly in 1991 AD - which was like the year of the end of the world in some sense. The last human system that was a result of all previous social systems collapsed badly in 1991 AD. And it seems we have a 20-year delay in the final destruction of the enemies of God Yahweh as pattrned by the dates: 607 BC and 587 BC - a 20-year delay. 1991 AD + 20 years = 2011 AD.
Only God Yahweh can build a just system: free of wars with eternal peace , where all living will be truly happy.
