Some claim that it is the Roman Catholic Church, some believe that it is a future Pope, some claim it is the Anti Christ.
Some believe it is the European Union while others claim it is the UN. Some even believe that it is a future Islamic Prince.
The True identity of the Beast is hidden in God's Word (2 Cor 4:3):
Only God can reveal the identity of the Beast(and all other mysteries in His Word):
Man's intellect, technologies, science, knowledge and so called "Bible codes" can never reveal it's identity.
We need to humbly rely on God's Spirit and study His Word (2 Tim 2:15) if we want to unravel the Beast's identity
We can never understand the things of God with our own understanding. We need God's spirit to divulge them to us.
This means that we need to diligently and prayerfully research the concealed mysteries of God if we ever want to understand them.
All earthly governments who do not rule with God's counsel enforce brutish(beastly)tendencies and that is why they are referred to as "beasts"
The Beast had seven heads and ten horns(he didn't have crowns on his heads but he had crowns on his horns):
Please note that the verse quoted above states that the Beast was(existed before) and is not(didn't exist at the time of John) This means that the Beast cannot be the 6th or the 7th head because the 6th and 7th head existed during and after John's lifetime.(the 6th existed in John's time and the 7th hadn't come) This shows that the Beast is one of the five that had fallen (existed before John wrote the book of Revelation)
A horn symbolizes strength (sometimes, goats use their horns to fight each other and the strongest goat usually wins) Horns could also be classified as subdivisions of a single animal i.e animals (those that have horns )usually have more than one horn. This reflects that the horns are subdivisions of a single entity.
The Roar of a Lion is very loud and is dreadful to every animal in the jungle(Amos 3:8). So that it had the mouth of a lion could mean that its voice(policy) could be heard by the whole of humanity and they were all expected to obey its voice(policy) or face its wrath.
Another possible interpretation of 42 is that the Beast would not reach its full potential till Christ returns. 7 is the number of perfection so 42 months (3 and a half years) could mean that it would only reach half of its potential before Christ comes (Matt 24:22) 3 and a half is half of 7.
Note that the Bible also states that the beast's armies (those who obey his policies and resist God) shall be slain with the sword (Word) that proceeds from Christ's Mouth.(Rev 19:20)
This Kingdom's policy would be to tell lies about what God really represents and to exalt all the things that God considers to be abominations(Luke 16:15 Dan 11:31), It would tell humanity to accept as godly what God calls abomination. It would tell us that lawlessness is godliness. It would also disregard God and His saints in its decision making and would openly make jest of those who emphasize God's truth.
On the other hand,the Kingdom of God transmits the spirit of The Heavenly Jerusalem(the bride) around the world and preaches faithfulness to God not harlotry.Notice that the woman also sits on the 7 heads (Mountains:Rev 17:9): This shows that the seven global kingdoms also transmitted the spirit of harlotry and abominations(during their reign).
And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.Gen 11:6-7
The whore represents the policies and beliefs (systems) of the old world that the beast is trying to destroy. I.e the division under different nations and races.That is why the whore sits on different people, nations and tongues:The whore is the consciousness (division) that sits on(controls,governs) the world (i.e.She is the goddess that rules the old world order of division.
The whore is a personification of the system that God restrained from realizing oneness and being able to do whatever it liked(being like God,Psalm 115:3). It is from this system that the old world of division under different nationalities and creeds originated. i.e The nations and civilizations that originated from the disintegrated Babel channel (reflect) the whore (system) of division.
Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.Gen 11:9
That is one of reasons why the Bible states that the "whole world" (world presented as a single entity) drank from the woman's cup(Rev 18:3) The contents of her golden cup are her abominable teachings of harlotry (friendship with the world)and the abominations that this system presents as ideal to the "common humanity": The World drinks from the Woman's Cup. The Church drinks from Christs's Cup (Conforms to His doctrine of self denial and partakes in His sufferings:Matt 20:23, 2 Tim 2:12)
Take note of the fact that her cup is golden: Her abominations are very seductive. She makes them appear to be the most ideal thing for mankind even though they are really filthy and rotten.
....and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.Rev 17:6
And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel?..Rev 17:7
Also take note of the fact that when John saw the woman he was enthralled by her beauty:She looked so amazing and beautiful that even John an Apostle of God was carried away by her beauty. This should show you how seductive she was.It was only the angel who had a better and deeper understanding of who she was that wasnt captivated by her beauty:Only those who have a thorough knowledge of what the woman represents can resist her beauty.
And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.2 Thess 2:6-7(NKJV)
The woman represents the policies and beliefs that the Beast channels to the world as being ideal(secularism,freedom to sin and oneness). That is why the Beast demands that the whole world(the previously divided world)worship him(conform to his ideals) so they can be conformed to his image irrespective of their creed and nationality i.e the beast channels(carries) the ideals of freedom,oneness and brotherhood(Rev 13:12): The woman is the consciousness (unity,freedom to explore the self) that sits on (controls,governs) the beast (i.e She is the goddess that rules the New World order of Unity):
That is the reason why some depictions of the feminine principle e.g the Statue of liberty consists of a woman who has been unshackled(freed)from her chains(restraints)and that is the reason why the statue of Liberty is often referred to as "Lady Liberty".
Note:The person that the Bible claims restrains the "mystery of lawlessness"(Set in Egyptian mythology and Demiurge to the gnostics) is referred to as "he" because he is the nature/consciousness(son)that is born of the whore i.e the whore is the Mother of Humanities divisive and individualized nature. The woman is the mother of the person that the Bible claims he restrains (The son of perdition,Horus in Egyptian Mythology and Christos to the Gnostics).i.e the woman is the Mother (Source)of Humanities desire to unite into a single unit/consciouness and of its desire to express its'freedom to sin'image and it's satanic nature.
The Church(Zion)is the Mother of Christ's nature in our heart and that is why Jesus referred to Himself as the son of man and referred to those that do His will as His Mother(Matt 3:35) i.e He is the Son (image, nature)that is born in those who embrace His Gospel(which is preached by His Church)and who allow His Holy Spirit to Regenerate their hearts.
The lesson we ought to learn from all this is that we give birth to the exact nature of the lady that we choose to embrace which is why the woman is called the mother of Harlots(she was a harlot)and abominations(she committed abominations)(Rev 17:5)
The broken chains at the foot of the statue of liberty
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen(degenerated from the state of its division/confusion), and "is become"(changed) the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.Rev 18:2
Example:The new and full moon are both different phases of the same moon and one phase must cease to exist for the other phase to be introduced i.e The whore degenerates to become the woman (the heads,the Beast,and the 10 horns are the agents of its degeneration i.e each Kingdom change brought about a change in governance and in the consciousness of the governed)"
The whore rules when humanity is ignorant of the consciousness of liberty. (ignorant consciousness) The woman on each of the 7 heads rules when humanities consciousness becomes more aware of its ignorance and yearns for a more united state and the woman on the Beast rules when the consciousness of humanity evolves (is changed)to become united and free.
Some of you might be wondering how the woman that sat on the waters still existed at the time of the Beast and the 10 horns inspite of the fact that she had already devolved to become the woman on the 7th Beast.The Woman on each of the 7 heads was still in a divided or ignorant state inspite of the fact that her consiousness devolved (in each stage) to become more aware of her need to be free and that is why she was still refered to as the whore i.e The System of God's division.
The Whore fully becomes the Woman on the 8th Beast when the shackles that restrain her from attaining unity have been completely destroyed and that was why it was necessary to completely destroy the whore(Rev 18:8)in order for a new beginning(Free woman)to come into being.
Also Note that the Statue of Liberty has a 7-point spiked crown or 7 rays on her head.They represent the seven stages that she has to pass through (devolution, degeneration ) in order to change (transmute) from the whore that God divided to the united Woman that sits on the beast.
Hindus and Buddhists call the seven stages the seven Chakras that the 'goddess' Shakti(sleeping/ignorant goddess) needs to pass through in order to become fully enlightened and awakened.While Kabbalists refer to them as the seven(of ten) shattered sefirot that need to be repaired(Tikkun) in order for the universe to be brought back to 'wholeness':
They believe that there are 10 sefirot and that the three Highest('Perfect')sefirot which represent Will(Spirit) Wisdom(perfect interpretation of the the spirit in the mind)and understanding(Manifestation of the interpreted wisdom in action) do not need to be repaired because they are in a state of perfect union
They believe that only the seven lower sefirot need to be repaired in order for the earth(the consciousness of the imperfect whore)to reflect the perfection that the highest three reflect.i.e become 'perfected':i.e reflect the perfection that the 3 sefirot experience above.They also believe that their perfection is based on the unity of the three of them(body,soul and spirit).
The symbolism of all this is that the whore must pass through seven initiations in order to experience and reflect the 3 highest phases of the pagan godhead (Body, Soul, Spirit). and when this happens,the earth would reflect the 'perfection' of their so called heaven. I.e As above so Below/Heaven (above) on Earth (below)
The 3 highest phases of their godhead represent satan's ideal world order on earth. The seven sefirot/chakras represent the 7 stages that man must pass through to experience all of them.
They believe that perfection can only be attained when humanity gains mastery over the three phases i.e when their souls connect to the Spirit and their bodies perfectly manifest the connection and that this can only be experienced by passing through the seven initiations of the goddess.
Note that what they refer to as perfection is really a degeneration/degradation and what they refer to as the Highest phases are really the Lowest and Basest phases:(Rev 18:2,Rev 14:8,Jer 49:16) i.e degeneration is ascending towards the serpent and sin and the further we degenerate, the further we are from God.
The 10 horns have one mind:
From this verse, we can see that another beast arises from the earth.God created man from the earth (Gen 2:7,1 Cor 15:47) So it is obvious that this beast represents a Man:Jesus told the Jews thus: "You are from beneath (the earth) I am from above (heavenly) You are of this world(in a fallen state) I am not of this world" (the ideal state) -John 8:23.
The fact that the Beast comes from beneath shows that it is in a fallen state(like the rest of humanity who haven't submitted to God.)
He had two horns like a lamb but spoke like a dragon: The "two horns" like a lamb represent the fact that he looked like a witness of Christ: Christ is often referred to as a lamb(Is 53:7, Rev 5:6). Two is also the number of witness(Rev 11:3).He claimed to be a witness (follower) of Christ but he spoke like a dragon. The dragon represents the devil (Rev 12:9. His speech (the message he preached and taught) was satanic and that is the reason why the Bible calls him the "false prophet" (Rev 19:20): because he claims to be of God but is really under the influence of the devil
From what we have studied so far,We can deduce that the 1st beast represents a kingdom or civilization that governs humanity.Every kingdom is controlled (ruled) by someone .The 2nd beast exercises all the power that satan has given this "Global Governing Kingdom". "The second beast" isn't a single person but refers to all the people who control this kingdom as long as it exists. They are collectively referred to as"beasts"because every human being without God is beastly and not spiritual (Psalm 49:20, Ecc 3:18-19)
Image means what the beast represents.
In God's original plan for humanity, He Created man to bear his image (Gen 1:26). The devil doesn't want us to bear the image of God. He wants us to bear the image of the fallen man of sin. So he uses the false prophet to delude the world into worshiping (adoring and desiring) the image of the Beast(The blasphemy and lawlessness it represents) rather than desiring the image of God.
This fire is going to be unlike any other other fire seen in any of the previous kingdoms: Flood gates of knowledge, technologies and discoveries that emanate from the mind of this world (Lucifer) would be released unto mankind and would delude man into thinking he can do without God and can solve his own problems by himself. This 'fire' will delude mankind into accepting the Beast's kingdom as the ideal kingdom. It would fool them into thinking that they have the ability to solve all the problems that affect mankind by relying on the 'advanced knowledge' that is promoted by the Beast.
Like we saw earlier, the 'image of the beast' is what it represents.So "giving life"to the image means that the policy which the beast represented (godlessness,lawlessness and self centered-ness) would punish all who refuse to conform to all its values.'Killed' as used in the verse doesn't necessarily mean it "Kills" their bodies but that it takes away their capacity to function in the system because they refuse to conform to it.
10.The 10 horns and the Beast hate the whore and destroy her 11.The Beast arises from a gathering of people.
12.The Beast demands that the world conform to its image.
You might want to question why I chose to divide the rule of the Roman empire into two. After the pagan roman empire collapsed (The one ruled by the pagan Caesars) in 476 AD,
1.Anglo saxons/Jutes(from whence the English originated )
Daniel, when interpreting Nebuchadnezzar dream which depicted the last kingdom on earth claimed that the disintegrated iron(Rome)will mingle with the seed of men(clay)(Dan 2:40-43).
The so called developing world (the clay) still remains dependent on these "superpowers" for development and they are still governed by the principles imposed on them by the European superpowers. (In cases were the superpowers permanently settled in the occupied territory e.g the US and Australia, they remained dominant (iron) over the aboriginal settlers (clay)
It is also not a mere coincidence that the Lisbon treaty was recently ratified by EU member states which calls for the adoption of "A Federal Government of Europe which would be presided over by a de facto "President of Europe" and would have an increased European parliament.The Bible states that the 10 kings rule"for a short time with the beast":Although several of the European 'super powers' had earlier attempted to subdue the world single-handedly and had been ruling their respective domains individually for many years,It was after world war 2 that moves were made towards European integration which was seen by many as an escape from the extreme forms of nationalism which had devastated the continent & subsequently these moves eventually produced what is today known as the European union.
It was also after world war two that many of the European super powers merged together with the US to form the North Atlantic Treaty Organization(NATO)whose members agree to mutually defend each other in response to an attack by any external party.
The 12 stars around her head represent the 'perfected race' that she gives birth to when she has a union with the cosmic spirit (zeus,osiris,satan etc). 12 is used to symbolize the fact that the Aryans are the light givers on earth i.e.humanity lives by their ideals (a day consists of 12 hours:Read Deut 4:19,Gen 37:9-10,Rev 12)
Europa symbolizes the woman on the 7th head. All the Kingdoms that emerged from the welter of the 6th Kingdom after it was destroyed and the 7th Kingdom are considered to be the perfect race (7 is the number of perfection/ completion) i.e the Mother of their consciousness: the woman (who sat on the 7th head) had evolved to a state of perfection i.e had understood that she needed to be set 'free'.
Which country pressed for the formation of the United Nations? Where is the headquarters of the UN? Where is the statue of liberty located (Remember that it is the 'freed' woman that sits on the beast.Also note that the statue of liberty is also called liberty Enlightening the World; French: La Liberté éclairant le monde which suggests that the freed woman enlightens/influences/teaches the world how to be free)
Which Country initiated and led the effort to wage war and topple the government in Iraq (The Physical location of Babel is in the present day Iraq: Babel was the spot that humanity was divided and scattered from i.e the cradle of the divided civilization: Remember that the beast and the 10 horns hate and destroy the whore and also take note of the fact that the effort to topple Saddam was called Operation Iraqi Freedom).
Which country is the country millions dream to live in? Which country is called god's own country (It is called god's country because it is the perfect model for all nations to emulate): satan is the god of this world and empowers the beast:
It is not a mere coincidence that America came into existence 1300 years after the pagan roman empire fell(476 AD-1776AD, note that the account of the beast is found in Rev 13) It was founded by thirteen British colonies located along the Atlantic seaboard.On July 4, 1776, these colonies issued the Declaration of Independence, which proclaimed their right to self-determination and their establishment of a cooperative union:
In occult circles, 13 represents the ultimate state of self-achieved perfection and Illumination which all occultists hope to achieve by their own efforts 6 represents man, and 7 represents the number of divine perfection (6:imperfect man + 7:god consciousness=13) :The American civilization epitomizes what the number 13 represents. It is built on Humanism:
The idea that man is supreme and is therefore good enough to govern his life and live by his own laws.And that is why it is no surprise that America is obsessed with using the number 13 on its symbols. Check Your one dollar Bill: 13 stars,13 arrows,13 olives. 13 letters in Annuit Coeptis,There are 13 letters in the "E Pluribus Unum" on the ribbon The pyramid behind the dollar bill has 13 levels.Also, the American flag has 13 stripes.(Read Eze 28:1-10)
666:Foundation of the NWO
Also it is not a mere coincidence that when the Roman numerals inscribed at the bottom of the pyramid on the 'One' Dollar Bill (its foundation:MDCCLXXVI)are added together(without repeating the numerals twice),they total 666. Note: M was not among the early roman numerals "CIƆ"were formerly used to represent a thousand.M was introduced later on.
It is also not a mere coincidence that the western Hemisphere(Which the USA is a part of) is called the "new world": The civilization that the rest humanity (the old world)is expected to conform to.Any other civilization that rejects and challenges the "so called American ideals" is either labeled as being intolerant and hateful or is made bankrupt(by sanctions) and becomes isolated in the so called "international community".
In other words, the so called wars were engineered in order to destroy/supress mankind's differences and to unite all of them into a common understanding in order to reflect America's Ideology (making peace with them on their own (America's) terms). That is also the reason why His son George W.Bush claimed that the war in Iraq was a 'central front' in the war on terror.
The following is a version of the story of the goddess Europa from the San Diego State University website
One night, Europa had a dream. In this dream two continents, which were in the forms of women were arguing over Europa. Asia maintained that since Europa had been born in Asia she belonged to it.
The other continent, which was nameless,said that her birth was not important, that Zeus would give her to it.(Remember that america was originally inhabited by non Aryans)It was early morning, disturbed by the dream Europa did not go back to sleep. She summoned her companions, who were all daughters of nobility and of her age. It was a beautiful day and they went off gathering flowers by the sea.
Zeus noticed this charming group, particularly Europa, who was the prettest [sic] of the maidens…Zeus appeared to the group as a white bull. The bull laid down in front of Europa. She slid on to its back. Instantly, the bull charged off, plunging into the sea, and began to swim rapidly from the shore. Europa saw that a procession had joined them, Nereids riding dolphins, Triton blowing his horn, even Poseidon.
From this she realized that the bull must be a god. She pleaded with him to pity her. Zeus spoke to her and explained his love. He took her to Crete, where he had been raised. He promised that she would bear him many famous sons.
The spiritual message behind this ancient legend is that the plan of Zeus/Satan is to reject the 1st lady(Babel:civilization God divided) seduce Europe (the Aryan race), perfect her, make her a custodian of the perfect land: Atlantis(America) and use her seed to mold the rest of world to conform to her "ideal secular image" and thus create a new world order: Shift from division to oneness.
This explains why Max Hendell,a reknowned Rosicrusian described the rosicrucian temple as an "etheric structure" located in and around the home of a European country gentleman. He believed that this invisible building(perfected race,body of knowledge)would ultimately be moved to the American continent."
The American civilization transmits the spirit of lawlessness (Babylon)on earth and majority of humanity desires her false light because they feel it is ideal and can make them free to live as they like and explore their sinful nature. They prefer to choose America's lawless and decadent lifestyle to the Gospel of self denial(true light)that is offered by God's saints.
Fire from the Heavens(Rev 13:13-14)
Some depictions of the woman show her torch receiving its fire (light) from the sun (in the sky above: heavens).This symbolizes the fact that the woman receives her light from satan, the spiritual sun, sustainer and supreme ruler of the system of sin.
The Bible says the false prophet "makes fire come down from heaven in the sight of men" He flaunts the illumination (knowledge, wisdom which comes from the luciferan mind) of the woman to the world and seduces them with it.
Note: It is from the concept above that the olympic games ritual of using a female performer(representing the woman or a priestess) to appeal to the sun god (apollo, satan) to ignite the Olympic torch by placing it inside a parabolic mirror which focuses the sun's rays and thus illuminating the torch is derived from. You can read more about the ritual here
-We have confidence because freedom is the "permanent" hope of "mankind", the hunger in dark places(chained,ignorant), the longing of the soul.ibid .Note all added explanations and emphasis are mine.
It is not a mere coincidence that the American civilization is the main force involved in unshackling the restraints that inhibit our human/animal nature (religion,cultural and moral values)
Majority of the centers and generators of sin on earth are scattered accross the US: Pornography, Gambling (Love of Money)Hollywood movies which usually promote sex, drugs and violence and have a great influence on people accross the world originate from the US.
Majority of the world's guns and lethal weapons are made in the US (Violence)(The US is also known for its gun culture.)The American civilization is also associated with high teen pregnancy,abortion,dependency on drugs etc.
The American civilization is a self promoting civilization. So many people crave to live in America and the rest of the west because they offer a 'better life' for the self. This is the exact opposite of what God's kingdom is all about. It is a self denying Kingdom. It is about submitting to God rather than exploring the self. It is about denying ones self of this life in order to obtain eternal life.(John 12:24-25).
Its Dogma is : "As long as the majority want it then it is good (That is what democracy is all about: Majority carries the vote)."This dogma is Antichrist. Jesus is not man pleasing. He categorically states that what is highly esteemed in men's eyes is an abomination in God's sight (Luke 16:15)and he also made it clear that the Christain path is the path of the minority.
-..Partnership and cooperation among nations is not a choice; it is the one way, the only way, to protect our common security and advance our common humanity.Barack Obama,Berlin 2009
Weapons of Mass Destruction
It is not just a mere coincidence that the US went to Iraq on the Pretext of "ridding it of weapons of mass destruction"(which never even existed)The real "weapon of mass destruction" is the whore i.e She is the destructive and restrictive element present in nature that needs to be destroyed(rid of)in order for humanity to discover their 'full' potential and to realize their common origin which is veiled by their diversity: Her destruction on a large scale in the consciousness of humanity is what guarantees the establishment of a new world order(the Freed Woman).
Note:Occultists and pagans refer to her as the destructive element in nature because they believe that it is her presence in humanities consciousness that keeps in place the cycle of death (destruction) and reincarnation (Samsara in Hindu Parlance).I.e she is the negative karma' that ensures that the cycle of death(destruction) and reincarnation(the chance of a new life/opportunity to get rid of her)is in place.They also believe that it is only those that reunite with the unlimited(satan) by getting rid of their negative karma (consciousness of the limited:the whore) that would be 'freed'from the cycle of reincarnation.All those who accomplish this reflect the woman or attain what Hindus call Nirvana.
If humanity cooperates(those who cooperate constitute the woman i.e.The'ideal'Satanic system) with the plan(new age plan of oneness with one another and satan),each human "mind will be consciously connected(united under one principle) with the Mind of God(satan)."Those who don't(the whore i.e old order/consciousness) will be "selected" for destruction.Barbara Marx Hubbard
It is also not a mere coincidence that America is Israel's closest ally.The Bible tells us in John 5:43:"I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in "his own name", him ye will receive".Israel rejected Jesus (who came in his Fathers name)as the Messiah and Jesus prophesied that they would receive the one who comes "in his own name"(The beast bears its own name and not the name of God and it is this name it demands all of humanity to bear)
European nations rule with the US.They are the policy makers and make the major decisions that influence actions that take place in our world today.It is also not a mere coincidence that by their actions they show that they hate what God represents.They promote godlessness and mold our minds to be materialistic and support the abominable,(Make war against God and what he represents and suppress the voice of his saints).
The sun rises in the east and sets in the west.Therefore,satanic global influencing kingdoms 1st came into existence(dawned) in the east(Babel)and will 'set' ( be brought to an end) in the west(America).
N.B:The Roman and Greek empires were disintegrated too however,they were broken up by the revolt of other men not by God or his saints(Gen 11:7).
It is a melting pot of different nations: It is comprised of people of faith and people who have no faith, people of different races, and tribes who together form a united country(E pleuribus unum).
Today’s thinking toward a democratic world state is neither a new trend nor an accidental circumstance; the work of setting up the background of knowledge necessary to the establishing of enlightened democracy among all nations has been carried on for many hundreds of years by secret societies.” -Manly P. Hall, Secret Destiny of America
Many mystics like Helena Blavatsky,Edgar Cayce and Francis Bacon spoke of the future coming of an Utopian(ideal) society which they called "Atlantis."They claimed that Atlantis was an ancient, now-submerged, highly evolved civilization(old Atlantis) and claimed that in the future it would be rebuilt again (New Atlantis).
The states are depicted to be stars that collectively give their light to the earth to reflect the fact that the US is the perfect Model that all the other diverse nations must come together to reflect.(i.e.her Makeup is the guiding principle of the new world order).
The White stripes(7)represent the light and the Red stripes (6)represent and way of life,life or lifestyle(red)that the 50 stars inspire the nations of the earth to follow.
The age of Aquarius represents the age when the "New Babel"will be built:When different nations are merged together as one to form a united world order
