The Deadly Wound
I just saw Enemy of the State today. If you want to see what the power of the beast could be like in all his glory this is a good movie to see. Of course, it is unrealistic in places, but just for entertainment’s sake it was a fun movie.
Moving right along here. We’re whizzing past verse two and on to verse three. That wasn’t so bad was it?
Verse three reads:
“And I saw one of his heads, as it were, wounded to death, and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.”
Hint: The head that was wounded was the seventh and ﬁnal head. It was wounded by a great historical event that seemed to be a deathblow to the power and authority of kings.
What was this historical event and how was the deadly wound healed?

More on Deadly Wound
“Could it have been the birth of Jesus who came to teach us the truth and the rise of Christianity throughout the world? The wound healed when the church was won over by the power of the beast and forgot its “ﬁrst love”?”
This is a good observation and the common one held by the churches, but it has several ﬂaws. The authority of the Beast cruciﬁed Jesus and after the creation of the Christian Church the power and authority of the Beast increased, not decreased.
On the other hand, the creation of the U.S. Constitution through the rebellion against the KING did deal a deadly wound.
Perhaps others would like to comment further on why this blow was deadly and how it was healed.
