Is the Beast’s Deadly Wound a Future Event?

“And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.” – Revelation 13:3

This is a hard one for me personally. The Chapel teaches that the deadly wound happens to NWO in the future to one of the heads of the beast system. Satan is then cast out of heaven and comes as Antichrist to heal the wound. There are many reasons why that interpretation is wrong.

Satan being cast out of heaven does however seems to correspond with the deadly wound.

For me personally this wound could have taken place when Jesus Christ defeated death on the cross. The previous Satanic world system would have appeared vanquished because of this. Still another strong possibility could be the fall of pagan Rome…

Seventh Day Adventists will commonly teach that the deadly wound happened in 1797 when Napoleon disbanded the papacy. There are also reasons why that fails.

I am an unsettled on this issuewhat do you think the beast’s deadly wound refers to?

Yay Bacon! The OT Dietary Laws are not HEALTH LAWS!

“If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the world, why, as if you were still alive in the world, do you submit to regulations – Do not handle, Do not taste, Do not touch (referring to things that all perish as they are used) – according to human precepts and teachings? These have indeed an appearance of wisdom in promoting self-made religion and asceticism and severity to the body, but they are of no value in stopping the indulgence of the flesh.” – Colossians 2:20-23

Probably the greatest atrocity that the Chapel ever committed was their theological denial of sausage, bacon and rocky mountain oysters. In fact, many legalistic cults have a vendetta against porkchops and shrimp kabobs. Shame on you Bubba Gump!

Grasp this: the bible is not a health manual. But according to Murray, the meat you eat WILL COMMEND YOU TO GOD! Methinks Murray was overly influenced by Garner Ted…

“This is a basic law—a revelation from God to man about which kinds of flesh will properly digest and assimilate in the human system, and which will not…” – Herbert Armstrong, WWCOG

WRONG! It has absolutely nothing to do with that…

Praise the Lord, New Covenant Christians are not bound to Old Testament ceremonial laws regarding clean and unclean meats – it simply doesn’t apply to us. It has to do with ritual purity as pertaining to the Old Covenant Jews.

“I know and am convinced on the authority of the Lord Jesus that no food, in and of itself, is wrong to eat. But if someone believes it is wrong, then for that person it is wrong.” – Romans 14:14

Murray knowing what the New Testament says about these things appeals to health concerns.

But the OT laws surrounding clean and unclean meats had nothing to with “health concerns”. Neither did God give these stipulations because the Frigidaire had not yet been invented. Not eating the flesh of pigs is no more commendable than not eating the flesh of cows or chickens.

Do you want to be placed under the bondage of OT ceremonial law? If you listen to the Chapel long enough that’s exactly where you will end up, under the law, under the curse.

The same thing happens when he beckons us to observe the Passover and reject Easter. It’s part and parcel with British Israelism I suppose.

But which ones do you want to keep? You pick and chose which OT rituals to keep and reject… when the New Testament is replete with example after example of our freedom from these things. It’s absurd bondage.

“Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace” – Galatians 5:4

The Chapel teaches slavery to ceremonial laws concerning ritual purity for Jews under the Old Covenant, it is very bad news…
