L Kelly wrote:Jesus in the Gospels and John at the beginning of Revelation both said the end times events would soon come to pass, before their generation passed away. And Josephus wrote 5 books, some of which describe the events which happened in 70 A.D., when Rome invaded Israel and destroyed its government and killed many of the people. Josephus' descriptions are much the same as predicted by Jesus and the Apostles.
The end times applied to ancient Israel, which was being replaced by the new age of the Gentiles. The Gentile age may be ending soon, but it's not likely to end the way the Age of Israel ended.
The "beast" refers to any government that is based on force instead of Love. The U.S. was founded in a more Loving system, but has become increasingly beastly, and needs to be reformed back into a Loving system, with freedom and justice for all.
