Revelation 13

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

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.

And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

If any man have an ear, let him hear.

10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

  1. 11And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

    In the End Time, there are two beasts here in this chapter that arise and begin to attack the church of the living God. Some say the antichrist the sin of perdition and the false prophet or the Catholic Church. I am believing that in the end time there will be a run of false religions and false theologies. They will be many that will fall to this deceit and be lured to the death in sin. Serving a false God and listening to things that justify their lifestyles to make them feel good. The priority of the papacy will be to turn all that he can from the truth and the one true living God. Those that will turn from the truth will be misguided by the belief of the false power that brings false miracles and even to bring down false fire from heaven because sometimes God allows some to do things like the magicians of Egypt.

    Those that will not worship the papal beast will be forced to take the mark of the beast in order to buy or say or to enjoy the nature of living. This is going to be the very situation that many in the church say they fear, but with seeking first the kingdom of God, your trust and belief will bring an assurance that our destiny will be already ordained. We may have to endure some of this tribulation, but God will be faithful to them that believe.

    The truth will definitely set us free in the end from the ultimate torment of the world. We have to stay true to our first love, the altar and Jesus. Scripture states that they that endure to the end, the same shall be saved.

    I love the Kingdom!

  2. 13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,
    14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

    While your uncle’s signs and wonders it’s something that we should strive to do to preach the gospel for the kingdom of God, it should not be what we rely on and our faith. Faith comes by hearing the word of God and our relationship with him should not be dependent upon what we see. The Bible is telling us for there will be coming a time when miracles will signs will happened and draw many people to worship the wrong God. However should we continuously pray and increase our faith and God uses us for miracles it can just as easily draw people unto our Christ

  3. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
    Revelation 13:16‭-‬18 KJV
    That will be the day that I get out of Dodge. To me it would be taking the mark of death; why would I want to: I mean really what would be the purpose of taking the mark. The only reason I could think of is oh look he did it; so I’m going to do it. Wrong, wrong,wrong; I want nothing to do with the devil or those that follow after him. I’m a child of the most high God and I will obey the laws, but I will refuse the mark. Even if it becomes law: that is signing a death warrant. I know for me; I love this stupid rock, but not enough to conform to that which is upon it. My time here is temporary; I would rather live upon it serving God than following the crowd off the cliff. It’s like the old saying; if your friends jump off a bridge will you too. That is one thing that I can say throughout my life; I never really followed the crowd. I most definitely refuse to follow anyone to receive the mark. I thank you Jesus for being who you are in my life.

    This is why it is so important to know Jesus, not just know his name, I know about him, what he has done, all the great wonders, miracles he has done, but do I know him. Do I know his love , what moves him, what makes him weep, do I know the depths of his sorrow, do I know him intimately, beyond the word, does he speak to me and I know his voice, or do I have a hard time thinking is it me? or you God, what kind of relationship if any do I have with him, the deeper the relationship the stronger the relationship. When this time comes I will be able to stand for what I beleive, and I wont allow the enemy to compel me to bow down to no image, but why would I suffer for someone I dont know then if I’m not willing to lay my life down now! Its important obviously I can see how easily it will be for me to be swayed if I dont have that relationship, because its gonna take alot of trust, in that time, the word of God has to be in our heart, that’s why all throughout hes saying hid the word in your heart, hes been preparing us for the soon coming time!

  5. 13. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

    14. And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

    15. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

    It’s easy to see how so many will be deceived. If they’ve never seen the power of God open blinded eyes, unstop deaf ears, or bring the dead back to life, but then they see the beast making fire come down and making an image come to life, they will believe they are worshiping the right one.
    That’s why it’s so important that we create an atmosphere conducive to the miraculous and get the word out about what God is doing among us so that more and more will come see it first-hand, and feel the true Spirit of God for themselves so that when they encounter a false spirit, they won’t be led astray.

    1 John 4:
    1. Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

    6. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

  6. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

    I found this article on the study of the number. It’s found at this site:
    http://www.biblestudy.org/bibleref/meaning-of-numbers-in-bible/666.html

    “The number 666 symbolizes the perfection of man’s overall system that is separated from God and under the constant influence of Satan the devil. Six represents, by itself, incompleteness or imperfection, as it is one less than seven (which symbolizes completeness). Man’s system on earth is made up of three parts, each represented by a six in the numeric 666.
    The first six of the number 666 represents the perfectly false religions of man under Satan’s lead. The devil is the god of this world, and allowed to deceive mankind, until the return of Jesus Christ (2Corinthians 4:3 – 4). The second six is for the deceived false governments of this world. The third six of 666 is symbolic of mankind’s self-centered economic system.”

    Those who agree to bow down and worship the beast and want to buy and sell goods will receive a mark. This mark represent man’s incompleteness and selfish needs to do things his own way. You must do as the system says or else you will not survive. I’m sure they’ll make it sound very alluring at first, but the facade will not last. That’s why I’m glad my hope is in Jesus. If they starve me, beat me persecute me I pray I can finish the race God has set upon me to do. In Jesus name!

  7. 11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

    12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

    13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

    14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

    15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

    16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

    Don’t be deceived and don’t take the mark. This is why we read the word and know who our God is and this is how we know what’s coming in the Last days. Do not worship the anti-christ. Just don’t be taken in by his “miracles and wonders “ those who get drawn in, pray the scales be removed from their eyes.

  8. Revelation 16-17 [Amp] Also he compels all ( alike) , both small and great , both the rich and the poor, Both free and a slave to be marked with an inscription [ stamped] on their right or their foreheads. [ 17 ] So that no one will have power to buy or sell unless he bears the stamp ( Mark, inscription), [ that is ] the name of beast or the number of His name. I hate the devil ! I am God child and I am born again. I will refuse to take the mark, Only Jesus can preform signs, wonders and miracles in Our lives. Don’t be deceived get your life right and get saved. Bow down to Jesus and Give him your life in Jesus name.

  9. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
    NO ONE IS EXEMPT!!! We can not believe everything we see or hear, BUT we should always believe the WORD of GOD!!! Here the WORD of GOD is giving warning of the end times, WE ARE THERE!!!! IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT WE HOLD DEAR TO OUR HEARTS THE WORD OF GOD AND WE MUST DO IT, I MEAN LIVE IT, BREATHE IT, SING IT, NOT JUST SAY IT BUT DEMONSTRATE WITH ACTIONS THE LOVE OF CHRIST!!! HALELUJAH!!!

  10. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
    17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Although this might seem far fetched, we really aren’t that far away from there now. Think of how much we use credit/ debit cards, and with identity theft on the rise…
    Just saying, I am working on my alter.

  11. iLove the Kingdom
    Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

    Many folks blame the devil for everything. Honestly, blaming the devil is easier then taking responsibility. The devil today is given too much credit. We all have free choice as to whether listen to him or resist him. Greater is He that is inside us then he that is in the world.

    There is a day in the near future (according to the Bible) however that temporarily gives the enemy power over us and those still on earth. The above mentioned scripture tells us the antichrist will make war with the saints and will overcome them. The majority of Christians in the world today believe the church will be raptured before the antichrist is revealed. Paul attempted to bring revelation to the Christians in 2 Thessalonians 2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him…Paul is talking about the 2nd coming of Jesus and the rapture. (coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and by our gathering together unto him). Paul continues by making the point the 2nd coming of Christ and the Rapture will not happen until the antichrist is revealed. He says is 2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition. How important were the words that Paul wrote? He says “Let no man deceive you by any means”…Wow. This is for all them folks that say it’s not important or it don’t matter. Paul stresses and demands the church to have an understanding that the antichrist will be revealed before the rapture and to not let anyone deceive you otherwise.

    Conclusion: There will be a day when the antichrist will make war with the saints and will temporarily overcome them. We are not to be deceived into thinking we will be raptured before this time, but we are to understand this time is coming and we need to be ready to give our lives for the gospel.

  12. 9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

    The final verse starts to say, “Here is wisdom.” In my mind I also see, “hear wisdom.” In these last days we must be on high alert and heed the Word of God and the wisdom of our elders and leaders. No time to play around or be unsure – know the Word and hear what He speaks.

  13. God have mercy!!!!

    Still rebuilding the altar? DO NOT stop, keep on keepin g on…. through reading the word and praying is the only way that we can be connected( to almighty God ,informed about the unseen, supernatural so that we’ll be able to understand and conprenhend what’s happening …..

  14. 6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
    7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
    8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

  15. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    NOW FAITH

    16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
    17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    This day is quickly approaching and many people plan to wait for this day to have FAITH in JESUS Saving Grace. However, that probability of possessing faith for this life event, will require much more than we have experienced to date. FAITH is something we hope for, but haven’t seen yet.

    Imagine life when we cannot buy groceries, gas, electricity, coffee, soda, a new car, a house, clothes or any other item of necessity without betraying and denouncing JESUS.

    This will require NOW FAITH. JESUS fed the children of Israel in the desert with manna and quail and I am confident NOW that he will feed his people. We have read how JESUS multiplies food and feeds multitudes.

    FAITH is built not created. Therefore we must build NOW FAITH NOW and not wait until we are hungry, thirsty, cold and uncomfortable.

  16. 3 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.

    4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

    5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

    For 31/2 years this beast has power, and while the world may not know who could have power to war against it, the true saints of God do. We know this time is coming and by staying in the church and close to God, we will either make it to the rapture or die in the faith. Either way, Heaven will be our home.

  17. Now is the time of salvation.
    Some have preconceived thoughts ifvwgen the second coming of Christ will be. Will we or will not be offered the mark of the beast. No matter what one believes we must set in our hearts that Jesus Christ is the Lord of Lords and the King of Kings.
    We must stand on the promises of God and keep Him first always. We are in the Endtime how much more to draw closer to Him.

  18. 1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
    2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
    3 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.
    4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
    5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
    6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

    We must be ready to meet God Jesus Christ or we will be left behind in the seven years of Satan. Time is short we must understand what revelation means we also must reach the lost so that they will understand. What is going on in our world today because there are false preachers wolves dressed in sheep clothing. Thank you Pastor Watts for preaching truth.

  19. AMP – 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 10 If anyone is destined for captivity, he will go into captivity; if anyone kills with a sword, he must be killed with a sword. Here is [the call for] the patient endurance and the faithfulness of the saints [which is seen in the response of God’s people to difficult times].

    Open our ears, open our eyes and see the times around us. The coming of the Lord is so near. We must remain faithful to His Kingdom, building up our faith and strength in the Lord so that should we go through 3.5 years of tribulation we can withstand the influence of the antichrist.

    If people are unable to serve the Lord now in the good times, chances are they will take the mark of the beast.

    Jeremiah 12:5 If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses?

  20. 10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

    The Endtime will truly test our faith and patience, and if we struggle now, how are we going to make it in the end? We need to build out patience to endure such sufferings and our faith in knowing there will be a glorious deliverance.

  21. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

    There are two philosophies that I have heard most of my life concerning the book of life. First that every person who would ever live and breathe on this earth; their name is already written in the book. It is then, that persons responsibility to maintain their “saved” status. I don’t agree with this; as scripture also states we are all born into sin. Sin separates us from God. How can we be in the book of life if we are sinful? The second philosophy is when one completes the prescribed processes they are added to the book.

    I believe the we all understand the processes; repent, be baptized and receive the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. If we consistently and constantly maintain these processes our name will remain in the book. Rev 3:5 The one who conquers will be clothed thus in white garments, and I will never blot his name out of the book of life. I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.

  22. Revelation 13:7-10 (nlt)
    7) The beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation.
    8) And all the people who belong to this world worshiped the beast. They are the ones whose names were not written in the Book of Life that belongs to the Lamb who was slaughtered before the world was made.
    9) Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.
    10) Anyone who is destined for prison will be taken to prison. Anyone destined to die by the sword will die by the sword. This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.

    “God’s people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.”
    St. Matthew 24:13, “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

  23. From this chapter what came to me was that in our lives there are going to be trials and faces. But what we have to do is look up and seek him. He might give you a word or a call what ever it is just know to trust him always. You might think “ oh no that’s not how you do it let me do it my way.” But no God knows best he chose his plan for a reason, and one had he will tell us why he chose the best for us. You might be led to be a musician, preacher, or a teacher in the church, I don’t know but just know whatever you are going to be God chose it for a reason for his kingdom. DON’T STOP BELIEVING POFW!!! FORFILL HIS WORD!😁😁😁😁😁

  24. Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand. Anyone who is destined for prison will be taken to prison. Anyone destined to die by the sword will die by the sword. This means that God’s holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful.
    Revelation 13:9‭-‬10 NLT

    …Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
    Revelation 13:10b KJV

    …This demands the perseverance and faith of the saints.
    Revelation 13:10b HCSB

    The only true faith is that which is accompanied by submission to the will of God and patient endurance of suffering.

    We have to understand that God has a plan, which usually differs from our own. In our plan, everything goes well for us. We are victorious without fighting battles, we reign without proving ourselves faithful, and we have everything without ever suffering anything.

    In God’s plan, however, some are appointed to persecution, some to prison, and some to death. In God’s plan, some are miraculously healed, and some miraculously remain faithful though they are not. God appoints some to deliverance, while others “were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented,” (Hebrews 11:37).
    God even appoints some to die young, while others live to a ripe, old age.

    We cannot choose the plan God has appointed for us, and we cannot consider ourselves treated unfairly because we prefer the plan He has appointed for someone else. In John 21, Jesus tells Peter that he will be killed at the hands of others for His name’s sake, and Peter wants to know if John will suffer the same fate. Jesus responds, “…If I will that he tarry till I come, what is that to thee? Follow thou me,” (John 21:22).

    We must follow God faithfully no matter the plan He has ordained for our lives. To do this, Peter tells us we must add endurance to our faith (2Peter 1:6). James likewise said, “Consider it a great joy, my brothers, whenever you experience various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. But endurance must do its complete work, so that you may be mature and complete, lacking nothing,” (1:2‭-‬4 HCSB). And, finally, Jesus told us, “In your patience [patient endurance] possess ye your souls,” (Luke 21:19 KJV). Thus, true faith demands a persevering acceptance of the will of God no matter the suffering we are called to endure.

  25. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. Revelation 13:7 KJV
    This scripture has always bothered me because the enemy, the Antichrist is allowed to overcome the saints. Yet, we know this world is not our home and these saints loved not their lives unto death. It had already been prophesied that others would have to give their lives for the cause of Christ.
    And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.
    Revelation 6:9‭-‬11 KJV
    I believe these are the Tribulation saints spoken of in chapter 7 and 12.
    And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
    Revelation 7:14 KJV
    And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
    Revelation 12:11 KJV
    Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean we will not face persecution because that is a lie. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
    2 Timothy 3:12 KJV
    Yet, there is a great reward for those who suffer for Jesus’sake. It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
    2 Timothy 2:11‭-‬12 KJV
    We should all be prepared to give our lives for Jesus both physically and to our carnal nature. Like Paul said, I die daily and I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
    Galatians 2:20 KJV
    The bottom line is whether we go through the Great Tribulation or not, we should be mentally and spiritually prepared to suffer for Jesus’sake! He did it for us, it’s the least we can do for Him. God help us all to get to the place that this world or fear of dying doesn’t have a hold on us to the point of losing out with God!

  26. 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. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
    Revelation 13:3‭-‬4 KJV

    The enemy will always try to deceive Christians. It will be easy for many to fall for the schemes he daily presents. Without the word of GOD daily in your life, without a firm foundation, without any strong roots in the Lord….ect. Anyone will bow to his lies. This is not the will of GOD for your life. Allow GOD to only be the ‘Author and finisher of your faith’. Keep growing in His KINGDOM alone.

  27. nd deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

    Deception is a tool of the enemy to cause lives to error in their walk with God. It’s one thing to error when you know better but sad to error when you believe something I right but it’s not.

    We must walk with decernment that the Lord May lead us to truth in all things.

  28. “He required everyone—small and great, rich and poor, free and slave—to be given a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name.”
    ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭13:16-17‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    We see this process starting now… science is making its way for this mark. Now we see we can pay with our phone app called wallet. We see that many parents have placed a ship on their kids to prevent kidnaps, this was tested on the dogs first, now on the children. This world is getting ready for this mark with out knowing.
    God have mercy on us.

  29. 4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

    This was far beyond my understanding but I saw one thing simple enough that had been going on since the beginning. The issue is worship! From the beginning the devil has been trying to take what belongs to God. He wants the worship that is only and wholly for God. The difference is that he deceives and scares people into giving him the worship. A true worshiper will worship in Spirit and and Truth choosing to surrender their Love to God. Therefore the deceiver has recieved deceived worship for it is not of a pure heart. The Father looks for worshipers, those that will worship out of their own will, not forced, not deceived, not scared into, but in Spirit and in Truth. Out of free will, out of love, out of my choice… my Hallelujah belongs to you Jesus!!

  30. 3 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.

    4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

    5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.

    6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

    7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

    8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

    Don’t be believe everything that people say.
    1 John 4:1-5 verse 1 says Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

    In the last days many people will be doing what pleases them self and not of God and say it’s right. The Antichrist will have power to do things that seem right or good but it will destroy them. We must watch and not be deceived by things that are not of God.

  31. 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.

  32. 7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.

    8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

  33. I Love To Worship The Lord
    Faith in Christ protects from being deceived.
    (vs-11) In other passages the beast is called (the false prophet) while he imitates the Lamb his voice is like the dragon. Those who take the beast as a movement rather than an individual see false religion.
    (vs-18) The chapter ends with a mysterious clue to the antichrists name the number (666)

  34. 14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

    1Cor 15:33  Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

    These signs and wonders are evil and should not be believed. We must protect ourselves from the lies of the enemy if we are to overcome this world.

  35. “Then I saw a beast rising up out of the sea. It had seven heads and ten horns, with ten crowns on its horns. And written on each head were names that blasphemed God.”
    ‭‭

    Then I saw a beast riding up out of the sea

  36. “This beast looked like a leopard, but it had the feet of a bear and the mouth of a lion! And the dragon gave the beast his own power and throne and great authority

  37. 17 And no one could buy or sell anything without that mark, which was either the name of the beast or the number representing his name. 18 Wisdom is needed here.

    At first, it may seem easy going with the mark applied to you, but regret will soon set in. The question for all, are wise, and have accepted Jesus as Savior? And will you refuse the mark?

  38. 13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

    Be watchful of wolves in sheep‘s clothing because the enemy may look like God may sound like God may even do things that you think God will do, but God is the only God with all power and authority. We have to be watchful and not be deceived by the enemy. The devil will come And try to deceive us but but God will be our rescuer

  39. Revelation 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.

    2:7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

    We must hear the voice of God by building our Altar,prayer,fasting, First the Kingdom.

  40. 18 Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man.[c] His number is 666.

    We need to pray for wisdom, it’s what we need for when this occurs. As Christians the devil is going to deceive and try to make us worship Him but we must discern that spirit. We can’t live a life that doesn’t please God. We can’t turn our backs on God and worship the devil. All he wants to do is destroy, kill, and steal what God has given us. Lord give me the wisdom to do what pleases you and only you Lord.

  41. Verses 9-10 MSG “Are you listening to this? They’ve made their bed; now they must lie in it. Anyone marked for prison goes straight to prison; anyone pulling a sword goes down by the sword. Meanwhile, God’s holy people passionately and faithfully stand their ground.” We must continue to build our altar in order to remain faithful in the hard times as well as the good.

  42. 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

    17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    I’m seeing allot of similarities between this part of the Bible and the modern trend of this country right now. Democratic Socialism is becoming increasingly popular, and it’s the leveling out of the social classes the rich lose the riches and the poor and everyone levels out and then the control is given over to a one world government.

    It’s looks like Democratic Socialism is the road to the 666 mark. Crazy?!

  43. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

    13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

    14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

    This is why it’s so important to have a relationship with God and have His commandments in your heart! When you know Jesus and fear Him, you can’t be deceived!

  44. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

    13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

    14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

    This is why it’s so important to have a relationship with God and have His commandments in your heart! When you fully know Jesus and fear Him, you can’t be deceived!

  45. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

  46. 8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
    9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
    10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

    Everyone will know he is God and worship Him. Even those that chose not to believe in Him now. We are not to g

  47. “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

    And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”
    ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭13:8, 11-15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Oh the things to watch for. I remember our home bible study and the teaching from Revelations. This is something that will be done in front of everyone. It will be something that those who know the scriptures will identify, and those who
    Do not will be deceived. Parts of this sound somewhat familiar, causing everyone to worship or great consequences—Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed–nego In the burning fiery furnace. Daniel‬ ‭3
    Great wonders being done in the sight of man—the plagues of Egypt. Exodus 7-12. Those who aren’t paying attention will be deceived. We need more than just eyes to see because we walk by faith and not by sight.

  48. “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
    ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭13:16-17‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Seek ye first the kingdom
    We have to continually build our faith because when this day comes that’s it, all we have is the Lord. I’m not so worried about myself mostly because I know what I gotta do to keep my faith in Jesus high. I’m more worried for my family and I pray they can recieve this revelation and begin to build their faith. So they can be bold and strong in the Lord for when this day comes and for all the days of tribulations and trials before hand.
