Dustin Pestlin of Hope Through Prophecy says that the deadly head wound took place in 1798 AD.
This is not accurate, as the deadly head wound took place when the Western Roman Emperor was removed from power in 476 AD, during the fourth trumpet judgment. The office was effectively ended, thus the death of the head, the leader.
When the Popes of Rome were given civil and ecclesiastic power in 538 AD, and they claimed the title of Pontifex Maximus, the leader of church and state of the Roman Empire, and the deadly head wound was healed.
Daniel, Paul and John pointed to this transition of power from the Roman Emperors to the Popes.
Revelation 13:14 points to the image of the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. It’s pointing to the Popes being removed from power in 1798 AD, but the office of the papacy did not end and it lives on until this day.

Dustin Pestlin of Hope Through Prophecy says that the USA is the earth beast of Revelation 13.
This is false, as Daniel only described four beast kingdoms in Daniel 2 and Daniel 7: Babylon > Medo-Persia > Greece > Rome.
In Revelation, John picks up the narrative by describing the leaders of the three phases of the Roman beast kingdom: pagan Emperors > antichrist beast Popes > false prophet Jesuit Superior Generals.
The false prophet Jesuit Superior General who rose to power out of the land (earth, ge in the Greek) of the beast, the Vatican.
It is the Jesuit Superior General who was given authority in the 16th century, who lived in the land (earth) of the Vatican. It is the General who caused the first four bowl judgments to be poured out on countries which had banned the Jesuits. It is the General who used Napoleon to remove the Pope from power as part of the fifth bowl. The black pope has controlled the Vatican ever since, and he exercises his authority in front of the white pope.
Horns point to leaders. The earth beast phase of the Roman beast kingdom has two horns, the black pope and the white pope, the false prophet Jesuit Superior General and the antichrist beast Pope; who pretend to serve Messiah (lamb-like), but really serve Satan (the dragon).
The General in Rome controls the city-state corporation of the District of Columbia, and is using it to push the world into their One World Government.

Dustin Pestlin of Hope Through Prophecy says that Sunday Sabbath is the mark of the beast.
This is the official stance of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, who teach the historicist explanation of prophecy fulfillment, but are now giving false explanations about the earth beast of Revelation and the mark of the beast.
The enemy created a false dichotomy between Sunday Lord’s Day and a Saturday Sabbath, but neither one is the Biblical Sabbath as the Scriptural calendar is not compatible with the pagan Roman calendar.
The Scriptural calendar is based on the heavenly cycle of the sun, moon and stars. It starts in the spring, not the winter. The Scriptural Sabbath is based on the cycle of the moon, starting after the celestial new moon day. Read The Constantine Calendar
When you think about it, it’s quite absurd to think that the Heavenly Father is going to condemn people for gathering together to sing praises, learn Biblical truth and pray, just because they supposedly did it on the wrong day.
The mark of the beast is revering (mark on the forehead) and obeying (mark on the right hand, actions) the antichrist beast Pope. This is proven out historically as the people in France had the mark of the beast when they revered the Pope and killed the saints. Read The Fulfillments Of The Mark Of The Beast
I appreciate the many truths that Dustin Pestlin of Hope Through Prophecy teaches in this video, but ultimately he is deceiving people about the earth beast of Revelation 13 and the mark of the beast.
This serves to deflect blame away from the false prophet Jesuit Superior General. I suspect that the Seventh Day Adventist Church has been infiltrated by the Jesuits to mislead people and hide their authority.

Messiah’s apocalyptic vision is a war manual, designed to hide the explanation from those who should not understand it. It uses symbolic words that are defined in the Old Testament to point to a literal fulfillment. If you read Revelation only from a literal perspective, the interpretation is hidden.
Understanding the vision is like taking a Biblical final exam. If you’ve read the whole Word, you will have seen the symbolism that Messiah uses and can apply it to the fulfillment.
If you read Revelation as one chronological narrative, the prophecies seem out of sequence. That’s because it has four chronological layers, each of which spans from when it was written until Messiah returns.
This book explains the prophecies of Revelation on a timeline to help you see how the four chronological layers interact with each other, so that you can comprehend the whole vision.
You will learn how to identify who fulfills the role of the son of perdition, the antichrist beast, the false prophet, and the harlot called ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great.’ You will understand the proper context of the seal, trumpet, and bowl judgments; the little book of Revelation 10, and the two witnesses of Revelation 11.
Whether you’re a novice at Bible prophecy or someone who has studied it extensively, I provide an explanation that is easy to understand yet has the depth of verse by verse explanations to provide you the evidence you need to prove it out.
