Evidence: Ronald Reagan is Beast of Revelation!!!!
Date: Sunday, 1 February 2004, 2:00 am

Let's get this "Ronald Reagan was the Beast" thing straightened out once and for all.

Evidence that Ronald Reagan
is the Beast of Revelation
A number of Web sites comment briefly on the implications of Ronald Wilson Reagan having six letters in each of his names. They go on to dismiss the implications because:
(a) the whole idea is crazy, or
(b) it disagrees with their own theory which is even crazier. (That's me--HA!)

Whether our 40th President was the Beast of Revelation* or not, someone ought to mention the rest of the evidence which suggests that he was, if only as a study in coincidence.

Revelation 13
3 One of its heads seemed to have a mortal wound, but its mortal wound was healed, and the whole earth followed the beast with wonder.
Revelation 17
7 But the angel said to me, "Why marvel? I will tell you the mystery .... of the beast with seven heads .... 9 This calls for a mind with wisdom: the seven heads .... 10 they are also seven kings .... 12 And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for one hour, together with the beast." James Brady, press secretary to Ronald Reagan, was shot in the head during an attempt on the president's life. Hearing that Brady's wound was certain to be fatal, a Whitehouse staffer mistakenly informed the press that Brady had died. The major television networks announced the death of James Brady. The story traveled throughout the world at electronic speeds. Miraculously, Brady survived his surgery. The press revealed that the man they had been memorializing was still alive.


It was this event which drew my attention to the Reagan/Beast coincidences. I did not look up Ronald Reagan's middle name until later.

Revelation 13
17 ....the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty-six. RONALD = 6
Most efforts to explain 666 rely on complex numerological systems, but the word "psephizo" in the original text implies counting, not mystical calculation. Some variant texts give the number as 616. Ronald W. Reagan?
Ron and Nancy Reagan retired to a house at 666 St. Cloud Road. Nancy had the address changed to 668.
Revelation 13
2 .... its feet were like a bear's .... The Reagan family coat of arms, commissioned by Ron and Nancy Reagan, includes a bear, the state animal of California. California is both the Reagan's home, and their power base.
Revelation 17
3 ....I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and bedecked with gold and jewels and pearls .... Nancy Reagan consistently wore very expensive designer clothing while she was First Lady, strongly favoring the color red.
Revelation 17
5 and on her forehead was written a name of mystery: "Babylon the great, mother of harlots and of earth's abominations."
Ezekiel 3:7-9
Jeremiah 2:19-20, 3:1-5
Revelation 7:3, 9:4, 14:1, 14:9, 17:1-2 Nancy Reagan consulted her astrologer when setting the President's schedule.
Astrology is the surviving remnant of the faith of ancient Babylon.

A mark on the forehead is a Biblical reference to one's faith. Harlotry is a reference to a false faith. When Jeremiah condemns Israel for following false gods with the phrase "you have a harlot's brow" he nicely combines both images.
Revelation 17
16 And the ten horns that you saw, they .... will hate the harlot .... Many people, on leaving the Reagan administration, wrote books which included an attack on Nancy. This became such a regular thing that when Nancy wrote her own memoirs she titled them My Turn and attacked her attackers.
Revelation 13
11 Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb .... George Bush, Reagan's successor, fought a war against Iraq consisting of two very distinct phases. First an air war, then a ground war.
In the scriptural passage, note that the word for horn, kerata, can also be used to refer to a military division.
Revelation 13
13 It works great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men; It was only in the war against Iraq that air power finally became the decisive factor in a war. Iraq was subjected to a tremendous bombing campaign, essentially destroying its fighting ability before the ground war began. The bombing was broadcast live world wide.
Revelation 16
13 And I saw, issuing from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet, three foul spirits like frogs; 14 for they are demonic spirits, performing signs, who go abroad to the kings of the whole world, to assemble them for battle .... Bush sent his men, including Secretary of State James Baker, an old Reagan man, to the capitols of the world, seeking and getting military, financial and moral support for the army he put together in Saudi Arabia. He got United Nations approval to build and use the army against Iraq.
The term "false prophet" in the Scriptural passage refers to the successor of the beast.
Revelation 13
16 Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, 17 so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18 This calls for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty-six. George Bush convinced the United Nations to pass a number of resolutions in 1990 dealing with Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. The resolutions included trade restrictions preventing any nation from doing business with Iraq. There was an exception allowed. Humanitarian aid, defined by UN Security Council Resolution 666, allowed medical supplies and food into Iraq for humanitarian reasons. Iraq, Yemen and Cuba opposed this resolution because it only allowed the supplies in if they were in compliance with Resolution 666.
UN Chronicle, December 1990, pp18-19

These sanctions are still in place.

Revelation 14
8 Another angel, a second, followed, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who made all nations drink the wine of her impure passion."
Revelation 16
19 .... and God remembered great Babylon, to make her drain the cup of the fury of his wrath.
Revelation 18
2 .... Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! .... 10 .... Alas! alas! thou great city, thou mighty city, Babylon! In one hour has thy judgement come. .... 21 .... So shall Babylon the great city be thrown down with violence, and shall be found no more; The Iraqi military, the fourth largest in the world, was largely destroyed by the UN coalition forces in less than two months. The ground war lasted only a few days.
Iraq contains the ruins of ancient Babylon. Baghdad, the capitol of Iraq, is just across the Tigress and Euphrates rivers from Babylon. Saddam had a huge sign created showing himself inheriting the authority of Babylon from King Nebuchadnezzar.


It is actually unusual for an interpretation of the Book of Revelation to suggest that the city of Babylon mentioned is intended to represent Babylon. Simplicity is frowned on in Biblical interpretation.

Revelation 13
14 and by the signs that it is allowed to perform on behalf of the beast, it deceives the inhabitants of earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that had been wounded by the sword and yet lived; 15 and it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast could even speak and cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
This one still bothers me. It is a major prophecy of an act by the False Prophet, but I can't find a good match for it in the facts. I gave up on it when George Bush left office. The election of his son has given me renewed hope. We may see this one come true yet.
Revelation 8
10 The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died of the water, because it was made bitter. The nuclear reactor at Chernobyl produced a cloud of fallout which fell over much of Europe. This fallout moved in rain water and runoff, eventually collecting and concentrating in the rivers. Long term health results can be expected. Nuclear reactors use a power source related to that found in stars. Chernobyl is Ukrainian for wormwood.


Nothing to do with Reagan, but a lovely coincidence none the less.

*A note on terms: Many of the sites dealing with this theme suggest that Ronald Wilson Reagan is "The Antichrist". The term "antichrist" does not appear in the Revelation. The only place in the Bible where it does appear is in the First and Second letters of John. There it is used to describe people who claim to be followers of Jesus, but who disagree with the true followers on certain points, such as Jesus' incarnation or that Jesus is the Christ. Historically, the word Antichrist is now often used to mean the beast described in the Revelation, and certain phrases in the letters suggest that this might be correct, but as this is not clearly stated in the Bible, I avoid the usage.
OK. But does this really mean anything?
