THE NATION OF ISRAEL: THE LION AND HARLOT OF DANIEL AND REVELATION

ISRAEL'S NATIONAL FLAG


Acts 7:43  Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.
Amos 5:26  But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.

1 Kings 11:33  Because that THEY HAVE FORSAKEN ME, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and THEY HAVE NOT WALKED IN MY WAYS, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep my statutes and my judgments, as did David his father.

FROM SMITH'S BIBLE DICTIONARY

Ash'toreth. (a star). The principal female divinity of the Phoenicians, called Ishtar by the Assyrians and Astarte by the Greeks and Romans. She was, by some ancient writers, identified with the moon. But, on the other hand, the Assyrian Ishtar was not the moon-goddess, but the planet Venus; and Astarte was by many identified with the goddess Venus (or Aphrodite), as well as with the plant of that name. It is certain that the worship of Astarte became identified with that of Venus, and that this worship was connected with the most impure rites is apparent from the close connection of this goddess with Asherah. 1Ki 11:5; 1Ki 11:33; 2Ki 23:13.

Leviticus 20:5  Then I will set my face against that man, and against his family, and will cut him off, and all that go a whoring after him, to commit whoredom with Molech, from among their people.
FLAG OF JERUSALEM

Daniel 7:4  The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it.

THE WINGS REPRESENT THE SPIRIT OF GOD THAT WAS ONCE ON THE NATION OF ISRAELWHICH GOD  TAKES AWAY. THEY WERE PLUCKED, OR SNATCHED OFF.MOST  INTERPRET THIS AS BRITAIN BEING THE LION AND THE WINGS,  AMERICA.  HOWEVER, DANIEL 7:4 DOES NOT  IMPLY SOMETHING THAT WAS DONE INTENTIONALLY AND WILLFULLY BY WHO OR WHATEVER THE WINGS SYMBOLIZES.
HOSEA 9:11-12
 AS FOR EPHRAIM, THEIR GLORY SHALL FLY AWAY LIKE A BIRD........
12  Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, so that not a man shall be left: yea, WOE TO THEM WHEN I DEPART FROM THEM!

Scripturally, the wings are symbolic of "glory".
In verse 11, it is Israel's glory that God first refers to, their physical "splendour", their external blessings. Verse 12 contrasts their glory with  HIS.
"CEASE YOUR PLAYING THE WHORE WITH  YOUR  IDOLS OR ELSE I WILL REMOVE YOUR GLORY! IF YOU CONTINUE, YOU WILL GRIEVE AND BE DESPAIRED BECAUSE I WILL REMOVE MY GLORY!"
The name "Ephraim" is synonymous with Israel. Then why would God switch between the two names? There has to be a reason. Did He one day just decide to give Israel a nick name?
No. NOR IS IT COINCIDENTAL THAT THE NAME EPHRAIM MEANS "DOUBLE FRUIT".
When God uses the name Ephraim here, He is speaking to the two peoples as one because their sins and judgment will be the same. He is speaking to the two controlling entities in the last days, Babylon and the Whore of Babylon, whose sins and judgment are the same.
When you contrast the sins of Israel and the Jews, with America and Christians, they love and justify the same exact sins. The Holy Spirit in  Hebrews 4:11 tells Old Testament Israel is our example of judgment on an unbelieving people of God.


THE NATION OF ISRAEL HAD AND CONTINUE TO  HAVE LIVES THAT ARE CONTINUALLYINTENTIONALLY, CONSISTENTLY, AND HABITUALLY  LADEN WITH SIN AND PAGAN WORSHIP!  AS A NATION, THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO BE (AND WERE AT TIMES), PROSTRATE BEFORE GOD AND WORSHIP HIM ALONE.  THEY HAVE DETERMINED WITHIN THEMSELVES IT IS BETTER TO STAND AND WALK IN THE DESIRES OF THEIR FLESH, THEN TO PROSTRATE BEFORE JEHOVAH WHO DEMANDED LIVES OF HOLINESS. AS A RESULT, GOD REMOVED HIS GLORY (HIS SPIRIT AND PROTECTION)  FROM THE NATION OF ISRAEL. THE WINGS ARE GIVEN TO GOD'S REMNANT JEWS WHO COME TO FAITH IN CHRIST  DURING THE LAST THREE AND A HALF YEARS OF THE TRIBULATION. 
Revelation 12:14  
And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

HERE IS THE POSITION OF THE LION DURING THE LAST DAYS:
Revelation 13:2  And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
Revelation 13:5-6  And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.  (6)  And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

Daniel 7:20  and of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth speaking very great things, whose appearance was greater than his fellows.

Daniel 11:36  And the king shall do according to his will. And he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, and shall speak marvelous things against the God of gods, and shall prosper until the fury is fulfilled. For that which is decreed shall be done.

- The blaspheming king in Daniel is the same as the Lion in the book of Revelation. The one who is speaking and blaspheming the name of God is THE Anti-Christ, who speaks with the mouth of the lion (Rev.13:2).
In Daniel 7:4, one of Daniel's end-time visions, the lion is the first beast.
The lion is Israel, and the mouth is the Jewish Anti-Christ. The Pagan Jews are the whore/harlot of  Rev. 17:
CR
Ezekiel 16:35  Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:
Hosea 9:10  ....... and their abominations were according as they loved.;  
Hosea 4:15  Though thou, Israel, play the harlot,..., ; Jeremiah 3:8  .... backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; ...... Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also; 
+ Judah is symbolic for Christians.

Isaiah 1:21  How is the faithful city become an harlot! ....

The beast in Rev. 13:2 represents the nation that is the seat of power and dominion for theAnti-Christ, his military, financial and political forces. The spiritual facet is controlled by the false prophet who is one hundred percent on the side of the Anti-Christ/Satan.
Brothers and sisters, don't be fooled and lied to about these prophecies.
Let scripture interpret scripture first. Strive to rely on the Holy Spirit for your understanding, not the doctrines and denominations of man. The correct interpretation of these prophecies may affect your salvation. If all you are looking for is the Catholic Church to take power, you may miss the signs of Israel positioning herself to take control. Don't believe me, believe scripture. Forget what you have been told your entire Christian life. You must love the truth of God and scripture more than you love being right, more than you love your Pastor, Church, favorite author, denomination, mother, brother, sister, auntie, nana etc. The Lord is not going to force truth on you. You must diligently seek and want His truth above all else.
