Realization of Prophetic Visions

By Philip Mark Ames

Lion's Mouth

John also tells us that the beast's mouth is like a lion's mouth. Naturally, each of the beast's seven heads would have a mouth for eating and making utterances. And, as will be explained in succeeding paragraphs, only one of these heads is that of a lion. So John's emphasizing of the lion's mouth points to the one most obviously used by the beast for feeding its whole body, John later sees a different mouth doing most of the speaking.

The beast's primary consumer-mouth is that of a lion. The lion of Daniel's vision being Catholicism, this mouth would represent Catholic-controlled republics. Do these republics act as the principal feeding-mouth for democratic civilization? Yes; the lands controlled by Catholics are very rich in raw materials. From coffee to copper, Catholics control the ingesting of natural resources into the greedy gullet of the omnivorous beast.

The majority of the world's proved mineral resources, other than petroleum, are in Catholic lands. Chief among these is Latin America. An embargo on Latin American minerals alone, for example, could cause industrial starvation for the U.S.A. Were that to occur, it would be made painfully apparent that the Catholic republics act as the feeding-mouth for democracy. The wild beast's mouth is indeed a mouth of a lion.
