Most people use just a dinky little fraction of their brain power, and they don't use ANY of it to help them achieve success. As mediators between an inner mental world and an outer physical world, maps are fundamental tools helping the human mind make sense of its universe at various scales. Whoever sets out to write on the history of geography in China faces a quandary, however, for while it is indispensable to give the reader some appreciation of the immense mass of literature which Chinese scholars have produced on the subject, it is necessary to avoid the tedium of listing names of authors and books, some of which indeed have long been lost. Each borough elects a Borough President, but under the current city charter, the Borough President's powers are limited--he or she has a small discretionary budget to spend on projects within the borough. It may also be likened to a book of reproductions of works of art, in the sense that the illustrations, even with the accompanying commentary, cannot really do justice to the originals. Ragozin, says the Shumiro-Accads had formed a very elaborate and clever idea of what they supposed the world to be like; they imagined it to have the shape of an inverted round boat or bowl, the thickness of which would represent the mixture of land and water (ki-a) which we call the crust of the earth, while the hollow beneath this inhabitable crust was fancied as a bottomless pit or abyss (ge), in which dwelt many powers. The Chaldean conception, thus rudely described, shows a yet nearer approximation to the true doctrine concerning the form of the globe, when we bear in mind that this actually is in shape a flattened sphere, with the vertical diameter the shorter one.
These winds covered the arcs intervening between our four cardinal points of the compass, which points were not located exactly as with us; but the north leaning to the east, the east to the south, the south to the west and the west to the north (see Beatus’ Turin map, Book II, #207).
That he corroborates Homer’s views as to the sphericity of the earth by describing Crates’ terrestrial globe (Geographica; Book ii.
The profound difference between the Roman and the Greek mind is illustrated with peculiar clarity in their maps. Through both the Mathematical Syntaxis (a treatise on mathematics and astronomy in thirteen books, also called the Almagest and the Geography (in eight books), it can be said that Ptolemy tended to dominate both astronomy and geography, and hence their cartographic manifestations, for over fourteen centuries.
Notice that the final issue involves a false allegiance to the beast power, so often referred to in Bible prophecy. At last, the majority of earth’s inhabitants will accept the authority of an antichrist counterfeit power, in disobedience to God’s great ten commandment laws. This indicates that a human being would be at the head of the power represented by the little horn.
The Vandals, Ostrogoths and Heruli were Arian powers that strongly opposed the rise of the Catholic Church. We are now ready to identify that strange, composite animal described in the book of Revelation. At that time, the Pope was actually made king once more, and the Vatican City was set up as a political sovereign power. Because a mark of the dragon power is to counterfeit and substitute, we will be able to see in this religio-political system t he operation of Satan at his infernal best. We have already learned that this power was to counterfeit many of the great truths of God.

It must contain the name of the authority, the office or title of the authority, and the territory over which he has power. The Church, using the power of binding and loosing which Christ gave to the Pope, changed the Lord’s day to Sunday.” Page 243. Then, the true Sabbath and the counterfeit (Sunday) will be so revealed that no one can escape a decision—a decision to keep the true Sabbath with mind and hand, or to submit to the counterfeit Sabbath of the papacy.
And it's as easy as reprogramming your own mind using a simple system I can show you in 5-10 days.
But above all these, higher in rank and greater in power, is the Spirit (Zi) of heaven (ana), ZI-ANA, or, as often, simply ANA--Heaven. In order to understand the beast we must go back to the Old Testament book of Daniel and compare Scripture with Scripture.
But this powerful nation was also to be divided, as verse twenty-four indicates, “And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise.” Please notice that this is God’s interpretation of the ten horns on this animal. The eighth mark is also given in verse twenty-five, “and think to change times and laws.” Apparently, in its bitter opposition to the God of Heaven, in speaking great words against Him, this power also seeks to change the great law of God. We need only to be reminded that the Catholic Church has ever attributed to itself the power to forgive sins.
From a book written by a Catholic cardinal, which also bears the sanction of the Church, we read, “The Catholic Church … has a horror of blood.
Please note this: the Catholic Church has removed the second commandment from her doctrinal books and catechism, because it condemns the worship of images. Almost every utterance of the pope is published to the ends of the earth, and millions and millions of people look to the papal power as the greatest influence in politics today. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.” In other words, the time would come when the United States would change its peaceful, democratic tone.
For some reason the book called Revelation is counted a sealed book, instead of the obviously revealed truth that its name implies. The purpose of this booklet is to expose the massive assaults that have been made, and are being made, by Satan against the foundations of truth. We must not make the mistake of falsely identifying the little horn power, because it will prove to be the great antichrist power of history. This means that the little horn would be a different kind of power from those purely political kingdoms that preceded it. How clearly these statements show that the papacy received her seat and power from pagan Rome! As the papacy developed, it was open to the reception of unbiblical customs that marked it clearly as the real counterfeit power described by God in Revelation 13.

So far in our study, we have described nine identifying marks of the beast power and its application to the papacy. The book of Revelation describes a final edict of this earth’s governments that will actually seek to enforce the mark upon all the world. The United States of America was the only nation “coming up” to power in 1798, as the first beast received its deadly wound.
Based on God’s Word we have shown it to be the counterfeit Sabbath set up by the beast power. Inferences have to be made about states of mind separated from the present not only by millennia but also - where ethnography is called into service to help illuminate the prehistoric evidence - by the geographical distance and different cultural contexts of other continents. This means, then, that the little horn power would rule for 1,260 years, instead of merely 1,260 days. Lucii Ferraris, contained in the book Prompta Bibliotheca Canonica Juridica Moralis Theologica. This is God’s graphic illustration of the papal power, as it came up to exercise arbitrary authority over the earth for 1,260 years.
But soon the dragon’s followers quarreled among themselves, and Medo-Persia came into power. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
The library not only accumulated the greatest collection of books available anywhere in the Hellenistic Period but, together with the museum, likewise founded by Ptolemy II, also constituted a meeting place for the scholars of three continents. According to Revelation 13:2, the dragon gave the beast his power and seat and great authority. Obedience to God or to Satan, as manifested through the beast power, will be the only alternatives open to man. The Pope is, as it were, God on earth, chief king of kings, having plenitude of power.” Volume VI, pp. But he could not conquer himself; he died as a young man of thirty-three at the height of his power. But what a pity that it comes branded with the mark of paganism, and christened with the name of the sun god, when adopted and sanctioned by the papal apostasy, and bequeathed as a sacred legacy to Protestantism!” (From a paper read before a New York ministers’ conference held November 13, 1893.) This great Baptist leader condenses into a few sentences all that has been said in the pages of this booklet.
