In a discussion a few months ago at Prophetic Releasers for UK Revival I raised the point about the primacy of Bible prophecy over contemporary words and visions, which need to be weighed and tested. It was a lengthier, more detailed debate than in my recent post and Fiona Why introduced a most interesting way of considering chapter 13 of The Apocalypse in a manner akin to the fuller translation provided in the Amplified Bible – as shown at Bible Gateway’s site and which begins as follows:
[The Beast from the Sea 13 And the dragon (Satan) stood on the sandy shore of the sea. Then I saw a [vicious] beast coming up out of the sea with ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten royal crowns (diadems), and on his heads were blasphemous names. 2 And the beast that I saw resembled a leopard, but his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth was like that of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority….]

Before reading further, please read the above-linked version of Revelation 13 with its few [appended clarifications] to comprehend what Jesus revealed to his Apostle John.
Without breaking the caveat at Rev 22:18-19 forbidding tampering with the full text, Fiona’s paraphrase conveys how the nearly 2,000 years-old vision of future supra-natural and earth-shattering events may be understood in terms of today’s events and knowledge. Fiona says it’s been checked with a friend who translated the whole Bible and he agrees with its contents!
PARAPHRASE of REVELATION 13
1 Then I saw an accursed-man-made-corona-crown-shaped-beast (a viral-cult-religion-delusion-of-soul-ownership fuelled by the strongman of fear and oppression) rising from the nations with ten (heads) super-states and seven (horns) culture-shaping domains of power (Media, pharmaceutical-medical-science-and-communication-technology, religion, education, finance, military-force, government-control). On its ten super-states were ten corona-shaped-crowns, and on its seven (horns) culture-shaping domains of power were contempt towards God’s people and humanity. 2 It was swift to take dominion, with mighty strength and words that tear like the mouth of a lion. The Dragon (throne of luck and financial power-control) shared its power-throne and great authority with the accursed-man-made-corona-crown-shaped-beast.
3 One of the (horns) culture-shaping domains of power (global hub of pharmaceutical-medical-science-and-communication-technology) of the accursed-man-made-corona-crown-shaped-beast seemed to have suffered an infection-manifestation, but the manifestation had been wiped clean. After this, the whole world was filled with obsessive obscene fascination and followed the accursed-man-made-corona-crown-shaped-beast. 4 The enslaved-captives gave great reverence to the global hub of pharmaceutical-medical-science-and-communication-technology because it had given the accursed-man-made-corona-crown-shaped-beast its ruling authority. The enslaved-captives also gave great reverence to the accursed-man-made-corona-crown-shaped-beast, saying, “Who is like the accursed-man-made-corona-crown-shaped-beast (a viral-cult-religion-delusion-of-soul-ownership fuelled by the strongman of fear and oppression)? And who is able to take control over it?”
5 The accursed-beast was given a voice to speak boastful and contemptuous words, and was permitted to exercise authority for forty-two months. 6 So the accursed-beast began to show contempt against God, showing contempt for his holy name and his holy people, locking them down and banning worship; that is, those who dwell in heaven. 7 The accursed-beast was given the authority to wage war against the minds and bodies of the holy believers. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language, and nation. 8 Everyone on earth was manipulated to give great attention to the accursed-beast—those whose names have not been written from the foundation of the world in the Book of the Life of the Lamb who was slain.
9 If anyone has been given ears to hear, he’d better listen! 10 For the one who leads others into locked-home prisons, into locked-home prisons he goes. The one who kills others by the spiked weapon, by the spiked weapon he will be put to death.This is a call for the endurance and faithfulness of the holy believers.11 Then I saw another accursed-man-made-corona-crown-shaped-beast (a viral-cult-religion-delusion-of-soul-ownership fuelled by the strongman of fear and oppression). It was from two (horns) super-states, and was like a self replicating false saviour, but it came from the global hub of pharmaceutical-medical-science-and-communication-technology. 12 It operated in all the authority of the accursed-beast on its behalf, causing the earth and its inhabitants to submit to the first accursed-beast, whose infection-manifestation had been wiped away. 13 It performed great miracle-signs, even publicly causing 5G microwave energy to fall from the sky to the earth. 14 And through these startling wonders of modern technology performed on behalf of the first accursed-beast, deceived the world, telling the people to erect 5G transmitting towers looking like fire-energy emitting, corona-crown culture-shaping domains of power (Media, pharmaceutical-medical-science-and-communication-technology, religion, education, finance, military-force, government-control) in the image of the corona-crown-shaped-accursed-beast that had been wounded by the spiked-weapon and yet lived. 15 The 5G corona-crown-shaped-fire-energy-emitting transmitters from the earth were empowered to transmit images of the accursed-beast so that its power base could speak and kill those who refused to bow the knee to its corona-crown authority. 16 It also caused everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and bound, to be tattooed with the accursed-beast-passport-to-hell on the right hand or on the forehead. 17 This meant no one could buy or sell unless the enslaved-captives had the tattoo of the accursed-beast; that is, the name of the corona-shaped-accursed-beast or its number.
18 This will require wisdom to understand: Let the one with insight interpret (pebble up/add up) the number of the accursed-beast, for it is a man-created number – 666. (Numeric value: C=100 + O=60 + V=5 + I=1 + D=500 = 666)
Back in August Fiona kindly agreed to my publishing this paraphrase and I’d hoped to publish within weeks, but many items cropped up and I put it into the Lord’s hands. As you may have read in part of this End-times trilogy, it was in the ‘pipeline’ for Monday 18th October – but other events took priority. A week later, I asked Fiona if it’s still alright to proceed and got confirmation that timing is NOW, as in her reply:
“Interesting! Yes, I will update the Rev 13 for you, as I have had more insight, some last night in fact. And this morning I asked God if we were in Rev 13, and I felt him nod. So, your timing is spot on, I believe.”
Moreover, upon revisiting the paraphrase Fiona adds, “I want to make it clear and easy for people to get hold of without rejecting it too readily. It’s a bit much for many people to believe. I agree, it is the time to put it out there now.” (emphasis mine)
Also, Fiona received this intriguing insight:
“I have been asking God about the ‘O’ in covid, because it is the only letter that isn’t a Roman numeral. I have been searching the Greek and Hebrew – and last night was shocked to find that ‘O’ in Hebrew has the value of 60. Even more than that, it is pronounced as ‘S’ and means blood offering, and container of God! So the sneaky little scoundrels have combined the coming of the global Roman Empire with the Hebrew blood offering… This would make the real phonic sound of cv to be: Curse-vid! 666. (Roman numerals: C=100 O=60 (Hebrew samekh) V=5 I=1 D=500) COVID = 666 That discovery was a bit of a shocker for me…” https://hebrew4christians.com/Grammar/Unit_One/Aleph-Bet/Samekh/samekh.html
Previously Fiona had explained, “Covid is a cult religion. I’m assuming it’s the beast. It’s a strongman demon of soul possession and the UK needs deliverance. It’s also the pharmakea, sorcery, witchcraft spirit, and I cant understand how Spirit-filled Christians can’t see that!! I was shocked when in Rhyl a few weeks ago and I looked out the window at a 5- G mast and realised it looked like a crown/corona and it really struck me how the image of the beast could burn, was that thing. And, God gives some perception And, we have to understand that we are picked by God to translate the present, like Joseph was picked. And, that’s how it is…”
May our Sovereign Lord be with you as you weigh these nuances to chapter 13 of ‘The Revelation of Jesus Christ’.
