This May a new series of Euro notes will be inaugurated. This series will feature the Greek goddess Europa riding on the god Zeus, in the form of a bull.
This image, taken from a 2,000 year old vase, is planned to be the basis of a series of euro notes throughout the EUs 17 member nations, beginning in May.
For most Europeans this is hardly newsworthy, and most will simply go about their own daily business, hardly noticing anything strange.
For bible prophecy buffs, however, the image of a woman riding a beast will make them sit up and take notice. After all, Revelation 17, one of the central prophecy passages of the Tribulation period has the same imagery;
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. Revelation 17:3
Of course this woman is sitting on a brown bull with only one head, and two horns, but for many prophecy buffs, this is good enough. If you squint a bit, and say “woman on a beast” you can make it out to be fulfilment of prophecy.
That’s what Satan wants you to do!
When Satan unveils the real Antichrist, or Beast, being ridden by the Harlot of Babylon, he wants you to believe these are all things of the past, and the danger is past with them!
It is kind of like Satan is standing there in full view of the world, waving a flag, a euro-note shaped flag, and shouting “Look Here! Here is your woman riding the Beast! Here! Right Here! Look! Looook!”
Back in the 1990s, I remember prophecy author Grant Jeffrey talking about proposed designs for the Euro, one of which had a woman riding a bull, exactly as the bills coming out this year. This was long before the Euro was a real currency. Rather than being prophetic, I think Satan was playing games with Mr. Jeffrey, and others. Christians are often so eager to see fulfilment of prophecy that we have a tendency jump on the first thing that looks somewhat similar to familiar passages, rather than examine the details.
If this was really the woman riding the Beast, he wouldn’t be so obvious about it! When she shows up, she and her ride, they won’t be so obvious. In fact, when they take over control of the world, the world won’t know what hit them!
What I am saying is that, this is just another of Satan’s counterfeits. This time, however, he seems to be going out of his way to make the world, or the church, believe this is IT!
For a long time now, the New-Agers, and Occultists, have been saying that the Christian Church will lead the world into the “New World Order”. In order to get them to do this he has to get them to believe that the danger is over, and the New World Order of the Antichrist has been defeated! Therefore he has to give them an “Antichrist” to defeat!
This is what is going on right now. Satan is working on a stand-in for the Antichrist, someone you can really believe is the Antichrist. This is what the world will witness in the next few years; Bad times, and a really Antichrist-like world leader, with a believable false-prophet. They will also duplicate some of the other biblical prophecies, as best they can. It will be only those who uncompromisingly believe the bible alone, who will see the deception.
It is the details that matter the most. Every jot and tittle! If they are not fulfilled exactly, it is NOT what it seems to be!
Thanks, Dan, thought provoking post…God bless!
