DEEP EXPLORATION ON THE 7 HEADS OF THE BEAST IN REVELATION 17, IN CONNECTION WITH THE “DAILY”.
THE “DAILY” SCEPTER, TAMIYD, CONTINUUM, PART II.
David declared: ”Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the scepter of thy kingdom is a right scepter.” Ps. 45:6.
THE DAILY: CONTINUUM OF THE POWER, SEAT AND AUTHORITY
The definition of the DAILY according to the Hebrew word TAMIYD ( pronounced taw-meed), is from an unused root meaning ‘to stretch indefinitely’. Hebrew no. 8548 – Strong Concordance, Hebrew and Chaldean Dictionary.
TAKE “DAILY” AS A NOUN, NOT ADJECTIVE, NOT A VERB.
The Hebrew word ‘tamiyd’ as used in the book of Daniel, does not mean ‘continual’ in reference of an adjective describing a ‘daily’ action like sacrifice. Only in the book of Leviticus, the word ‘daily’ is used as an attribute. Its root, as used in the book of Daniel is a noun and refers to the CONTINUUM. It is a continuum that stretches, extends indefinitely from eternity in the past to eternity in the future. The Daily is a continuum (continuation and a cycle) of power, seat and authority.
In the book Prophetic Faith of Our Fathers, Vol. 4, page 847, the author L. E. Froom quoted from S.N.. Haskell, who lived at the time of Sis. White: ”Daniel wrote the history of the world from the point of view of the nations. Daily refers mainly to the nations (Dominions and Empires)” – The Story of the Seer of Patmos, S.N. Haskell, p. 289, 1905.
In its very unique meaning as used in the book of Daniel, it refers to a continuum of power, of seat and authority in the rise and fall of empires. The ‘power, seat and authority’ have their origin in the eternal throne of God. The dominion or power, seat and authority to reign was given to Adam (Gen. 1:26); it was usurped by Satan and passed from empire to empire until the end of time. It will be restored by Jesus Christ, returned to the Heavenly Father and finally given to the saints in the Eden restored. The ‘daily’ or continuum, from eternity in the past to eternity in the future.
IN CONCLUSION DAILY MEAN, A MIMIC “SCEPTER”, “SCEPTER OF POWER”, “STAFF OF DOMINION” BEING PASSED ON AND ON.
In this same context the Seven Heads of the Beast of Rev 17, are 7 times of stretching the Mimic Scepter from the Creator to man and back again to the creator in the last battle in history! Thus Satan’s First attempt to take away the scepter from God, the God himself handed it to Adam, but Satan usurped the Scepter of Power handed to Babylon, Medo-Persia, Rome, Papal Supremacy I, and now going to hand it to Papal Supremacy II, before the Creator takes it back and hands it to the Saints FOREVER!
