Jimmy was born in Texas, grew up nominally Protestant, but at age 20 experienced a profound conversion to Christ. Planning on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, he started an intensive study of the Bible. But the more he immersed himself in Scripture the more he found to support the Catholic faith. Eventually, he entered the Catholic Church. His conversion story, “A Triumph and a Tragedy,” is published in Surprised by Truth. Besides being an author, Jimmy is the Senior Apologist at Catholic Answers, a contributing editor to Catholic Answers Magazine, and a weekly guest on “Catholic Answers Live.”
There is more evidence regarding who the Beast of Revelation is than I could fit in the first video I did on the subject, so in this video I pick up where I left off and reveal new and surprising facts--things most people have never heard of--that point to who the Beast is.
Previously, we saw that the Beast:
- Has great Political Authority
- Claims Divine Honors
- Attacks the Saints
- Has Seven Heads, which we are told represent Seven Hills and Seven Kings
- Has the number 666 (or 616)
We are also told, in the first and last chapter of Revelation that it discloses
- “what must soon take place”
Using this information, we concluded that there is a significant case to be made that the Beast is associated, in different ways, with:
- The Roman Empire
- The Pagan City of Rome
- The line of 1st century Roman Emperors
- And, in a special way, Nero Ceasar
To review that evidence for yourself, check out Part 1 of the discussion.
Here is a link to Part 1 in case you haven't seen it.
And now, here is Part 2!
BTW, I'm preparing a Secret Information Club communique in which I "interview" Pope Benedict about the Book of Revelation.
If you'd like to know what Pope Benedict says about Revelation, you should sign up by Friday, May 25, and you'll get the special interview on Saturday morning.
