Adam fell, too. . It consists of three characters: A pregnant woman standing on the moon, a great red dragon, and a male child who does not remain on Earth. Because of the signs he was given power to do on behalf of the first beast, he deceived the inhabitants of the earth. When it does not define a symbol with a relevant text, no one has the authority to make the element symbolic. (Of course, their actions will prove otherwise, but their ignorance will take a few months to unfold.) Jesus did not have to go to the cross, but infinite love caused Him to be willing to give up His eternal life so that we might have it. (1 Corinthians 14:1) During the Great Tribulation, the 144,000 will frequently prophesy. (John 3:16) Lucifer will come to destroy the world. God intends to confront all seven religious systems at the same time; therefore, He will unite these diverse and antagonistic religious systems with His first four judgments. Look at this text: “In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. Anybody who has watched, as I have recently, someone dying of AIDS knows what a terrible, painful thing it is, both emotionally and physically. Solomon showed his love for the Lord by walking according to the statutes of his father David, except that he offered sacrifices and burned incense on the high places.” (1 Kings 3:2,3, italics mine) After Solomon died, the apostasy of Israel matured into open rebellion against God. The devil is called by a variety of names in the Bible. (Revelation 6:9-11; 16:6; 17:6) Most, if not all, of the 144,000 will perish. Judaism believes that salvation comes through obedience. . Now, look at this text: “I watched as he opened the sixth seal. We fit into one of these ourselves. Do not let it go. Lucifer will abolish the seven heads and empower the ten horns to eliminate religious controversy and to prepare for war with Christ. .” (Revelation 13:7, italics mine) How can the devil and leopard-like beast make war on the remnant of the woman (the saints) if they are in Heaven? But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The two prophecies identify four beasts of Revelation we need to consider. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to visit an automobile manufacturing plant in Dayton, Ohio. Summary: We have examined Lucifer’s hatred for Jesus in this first prophecy. For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God’s words are fulfilled.” (Revelation 17:16,17, insertions mine). His tail [pun: tale] swept a third of the stars [angels] out of the sky and flung them to the earth. (See Numbers 31:48-54, Deuteronomy 1:15, 1 Samuel 22:7, and 1 Chronicles 27:1.) Lucifer led the Israelites into apostasy over and over. Thyatira was located about 35 miles southeast of Pergamum. We will examine two prophecies in this study. This decree will force the wicked to make their final decision. One of the heads of the beast [Catholicism] seemed to have had a fatal wound [February 1798], but the fatal wound had been healed. President Bush and French President Nicolas Sarkozy discussed the summit Saturday in Maryland. We know from Revelation 9:16 that 200 million angels will accompany the devil – John heard the number! Look again at these verses: “He [the lamb-like beast] also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark [Greek: charagma – an etching, an engraving, a tattoo] on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the [visible tattoo] mark [to show everyone], which is the [assumed] name of the beast [tattooed on the forehead] or the number [of people who belong to] of his name. Because every war has a history of conflict, we have to start at the beginning of this story to understand the war that took place on Resurrection Sunday. Will you then say, “I am a god,” in the presence of those who kill you? The destruction of thousands of cities and 1.75 billion people is unimaginable – incomprehensible. Notice that he uses, for the first and only time in the book of Revelation, the title the "Son of God." I will strike her children dead." It is ironic that Venus shone brighter than any of the other stars each morning and in a spiritual sense, Lucifer allowed his surpassing glory to bring about his downfall. The king of ancient Babylon set up an image which everyone was required to worship. Third, Bible history and secular history affirms that God’s people have suffered persecution and harm ever since sin began. “They [the ten kings] have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast.” (Revelation 17:13, insertion mine), The seven heads and the ten horns do not share power simultaneously. For 2,000 years, Bible students have tried to determine the identity of the Antichrist by mathematically translating various names into the number 666. Second, the Roman Catholic Church is uniquely prepared to lead Babylon because it is both a spiritual and a political organization having diplomatic relations with more than 170 nations on Earth. He also knew the devil would proclaim himself to be God. Because Jesus and His angels triumphed over Lucifer and his angels, Satan’s desire for revenge has been insatiable ever since. . Tom Hanks is gripping as the hit-man gone rogue for revenge. . The number killed by Lucifer’s forces will be the same! Using the church as a puppet, the devil made it impossible for anyone to disagree with pope or priest without suffering the harshest of penalties. Since there is nothing they can do about that, they intend to destroy as many saints as possible before their doom arrives. But there were some good things going on in this church. The devil will heal the sick, speak wonderful words of hope and comfort, and perform amazing signs and wonders. The king of modern Babylon (Lucifer) will prove to be more blasphemous than the king of ancient Babylon. . Amazingly, everyone will see the problem and agree on the solution. In Paul's letter to the Corinthians he speaks of the "deep things of God," (1 Corinthians 2:10). Spencer decides … Subject to permissions policy, all rights reserved. This is why He took Israel into the desert when they first came out of Egypt. With God, timing is everything. He chose capable men from all Israel and made them leaders of the people, officials over thousands, hundreds, fifties and tens. The devil will create and enforce many laws that will have no purpose but angst and destruction. (Daniel 2) These are prophetic samples of things to come. * Note: Before Jesus created Earth, Lucifer caused one third of Heaven’s angels (the stars) to join him in open rebellion against God. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the Book of Life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the [lamb-like] beast [with their own eyes], because he once was [visible], now is not [visible], and yet will come [up out of the earth and be visible].” (Revelation 17:8, insertions mine). You will be but a man, not a god, in the hands of those who slay you.’ ” (Ezekiel 28:2,6-9, italics mine), Paul knew the devil would be permitted to physically appear before the human race. It is opportunity to repent, a slap in the face that says, wake up! Fallen is Babylon the Great, which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.” (Revelation 14:8). God used a cosmic setting for this story because He wants us to understand the feelings, the actions, and the loathing that Lucifer has for Christ. Amen! No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.” (Revelation 14:4,5, insertion mine). . And I hold the keys of death and [the grave] Hades.” (Revelation 1:17,18, insertion mine) If Jesus was willing to give up His eternal life in order to save us from eternal death, surely we can give up our temporal lives (prompted by our love for Christ and the indwelling strength of the Holy Spirit) as a testimony of our love for Him. (John 1:29), The great red dragon with seven heads and ten horns represents the fallen angel, Lucifer, who is also called Satan or the devil. (Revelation 14:5), The first scene in this prophecy opens triumphantly! Look at these three specifications: Specification 1 Each head has a blasphemous name written on it (Revelation 13:1), Specification 2 One head seemed to have received a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed (Revelation 13:3), Specification 3 The seven heads are seven hills (or mountains) on which the woman sits. Johns sees the 144,000 standing with Jesus on Mt. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. He will put the religious leaders of the world in positions of power. That quotation from Psalm 2 is a reference to the rule of Christ in the earthly kingdom that we call "The Millennium." .” (Revelation 13:11) There is no geographical difference between the devil being released from the Abyss and the devil coming up out of the earth because the Abyss was a hole in the earth. (An iron scepter means that His rule cannot be broken. Consider this sentence: “He [Lucifer] exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf [that is, Lucifer, masquerading as God, commends the leaders of Babylon for their efforts to appease God with “sin-less” laws. See Isaiah 14:12-17 and Ezekiel 28:12-17. I emphasize this distinction because some people insist that beasts in. He exercised all the authority of the first beast on his behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. The [leopard-like] beast was given a mouth [by the devil] to utter proud words and blasphemies [defying and insulting God’s demands] and to exercise his authority for forty-two months.” (Revelation 13:4,5, insertions mine) The leopard-like beast has no authority over the world other than these forty-two months. In his appeal to the church, our Lord says several wonderful things: "Now I say to the rest of you in Thyatira, to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan's so-called deep secrets (I will not impose any other burden on you): Only hold on to what you have until I come." But notice that the Lord holds the church responsible. Anyone who reads the Bible can see very clearly that God forbids these activities. This also explains why the 144,000 will not come from a single religious body. Religious leaders will be given positions of higher authority than political leaders because religious leaders will claim (and billions of people will believe) that they know the will and ways of Almighty God! They were purchased from among men and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. She was the one who tried to kill Elijah after his famous encounter with 450 of the prophets of Baal on Mt. The devil will kill most of his opposition (a third of mankind) and rule over the world as “Almighty God” without significant opposition for almost a year. The king of modern Babylon will do the same thing. Go over this carefully: “For not all who are descended from Israel [Jacob] are Israel [belong to Jacob in God’s sight]. They want nothing to do with religion. Whenever I meditate on the work and ministry of the 144,000, I am always fascinated with their worthlessness and yet, their exceeding great value – worthless in the eyes of the wicked, but having the highest value in the eyes of our Creator. For example, Catholics were led to believe that salvation required the receipt of seven sacraments. Jesus said, “This third I will bring into the fire [of persecution]; I will refine them like silver and test them like gold. . The leopard-like beast has a similar feature. Therefore, if a person wishes to avoid death, he must come forward by a predetermined date, swear allegiance and loyalty to the devil and his government, and receive a tattoo on his right hand showing the number 666. John saw the devil chase the woman into the desert for a time, times, and half a time. On the contrary, [God rejected Abraham’s plea that Ishmael, his first born son, should be the heir to the covenant. They did everything possible to change the feelings and attitudes of their subjects, but there was no repentance. Although this story did not actually take place, the concept of separating people according to a mark (etching) was presented to Ezekiel in a vision.). The leopard-like beast is called Babylon six times in the book of Revelation because there are many parallels between the ancient empire of Babylon and the modern empire of Babylon. (A.D. 538-1798) This can be confusing, I know, but the prophecy in Revelation 12 spans many centuries. It is not that they cannot, and do not at times, fall, but they invariably recover, and repent, and turn back to him. First, through flattery and miracles, he will want the leaders of Babylon to believe that he really is Almighty God and in turn, their endorsement will convince their respective followers to believe the same. He will divide Earth into ten geographical sectors and his ten kings will see that no rebellion exists throughout his great empire of Babylon. The two greatest commandments are these: The remnant of the woman will also obey the testimony of Jesus. Unfortunately, the United States has turned away from honoring and serving God. Comment: The Bible says the mark of the beast will consist of two different etchings (or tattoos). The barbarous usage of these slain witnesses; the malice of their enemies was not satiated with their blood and death, but pursued even their dead bodies. These individuals follow the leading of the Holy Spirit – wherever He leads. This woman has existed ever since sin began and she was chased into the desert for 1,260 years. This tattoo will separate Lucifer’s opposition from those willing to serve as devoted subjects. Pergamum says, "Trust the Word of God to keep you strong and faithful," (Revelation 2:12-17). He is filled with fury, because he knows that his [remaining] time is short.” (Revelation 12:12). This etching will be non-removable, non-transferrable, and non-losable. This prophecy begins with a war on Resurrection Sunday (Revelation 12:7) and it ends with the 144,000 standing around the Lamb on Mt. Therefore, we have to ask, “Does the devil really influence people, and by extension, organizations, to do things they would otherwise not do?” Consider these verses: “Be self-controlled and alert. If I could give this prophecy a title, it would be, “ Lucifer’s Hatred for Jesus.” Even though this prophecy begins at the time of Christ’s birth, the conflict between Christ and Satan predates the creation of Earth. Those who worship Lucifer will obey his laws. For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:10-12, italics and insertion mine). He loved the people of the world so much that He gave us Jesus as our atonement for sin. Third, the lamb-like beast rises from the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth [to Jesus], so that he might devour her child the moment it was born.” (Revelation 12:3,4, italics and insertion mine). He had seven horns and seven eyes which are the seven spirits [the seven angels] of God sent out into all the earth. The Earth did help the woman, but that helping hand is gone and the remnant of the woman is wondering how much longer will God tolerate this planet before casting down the censer. He is delighted that even though hundreds of millions of Christians have Bibles, the vast majority of them are virtually ignorant of his coming ambush. Then, during the sixth trumpet, the devil will suddenly abolish the seven religious systems of Earth because there is no room for religious diversity when “god lives among men.” The devil will divide the people of Earth into groups of a thousand and put them to work, building up the “kingdom of God” for a thousand years of peace. 21I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. There is no wiggle room. First, to understand that at the sixth trumpet, three groups of people will live on Earth. John describes the leopard-like beast as having seven heads when it rises to power and, Notice that the leopard-like beast has body parts that belong to a lion, a bear, and a leopard, and it just so happens that the first three beasts in Daniel 7 are a lion, a bear, and a leopard. The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. To do this, he will claim that he must abolish the seven religious systems because there is no room for religious diversity when “God” lives and reigns among men. Living by faith is like putting on a blindfold, taking hold of Christ’s arm, and following wherever He leads. But the trouble with Jezebel is that she was a false prophet. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time.” (Daniel 7:25, italics and insertion mine) Who handed the saints over to the little horn power if not God? (This is why we need to spread the word now – before freedom of speech is lost.) “These [the 144,000] are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they kept themselves pure. He was the first angel to take a position against Jesus before the world was created and he will be the last angel to die when the world is cleansed by fire. God’s wrath is stirred when He sees children abused, women raped, people robbed, elderly cheated out of their savings, addicts agonizing for more drugs, endless violence, and bloodshed. Consider these parallels: Ancient Babylon was a world empire* and modern Babylon will be a world empire. (Luke 6:39), Given the global diversity of mankind today, it seems foolish to predict that a time is coming when the whole world will voluntarily submit to one religious authority. (Job 1:6) This information is pertinent for two reasons. This holistic experience is called “walking with God.” “This is the account of Noah. They are obsessed with exercising and maintaining absolute power and control. These accusations were baseless because God waited patiently for the angels to repent, but they would not. This seems to be Jesus’ pattern. The Romans hated the Christians because they thought Christians were another Jewish sect and they hated the Jews. (These horns represent his authority over church and state), He will perform great miracles and signs, even causing fire to fall from Heaven. Prior to Gutenberg’s invention of moveable type for printing presses in 1439, Bibles were very rare. There was a great earthquake. Love for money and pleasure has displaced love for God and His Word. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. The leopard-like beast with seven heads and ten horns represents Babylon. After Lucifer led Eve and then Adam into sin, God crowned Lucifer as “the prince of this world.” (John 12:31) As the prince of this world, God permitted Lucifer to join with princes from other worlds when administrative meetings were called in Heaven. Lucifer will initiate this war when he establishes his theocracy and rules over Earth as Almighty God. (Revelation 2:26-27 NIV). As the Son of God he has "eyes like blazing fire," eyes that can pierce the facades, the disguises, the postures and pretensions of his people and get right to the heart of what they are doing. Therefore, Babylon has to be transformed so that Babylon’s highest and purest purpose can be achieved, namely, the establishment of a global church-state. This nation enabled Protestants to translate and distribute the Bible and the gospel of Jesus throughout the world. Jesus will select them from all religious systems because the gospel commission will be completed by honest-hearted individuals instead of one arrogant religious system. It became an organized body of believers. Similarly, a religious system is an organization where people look up to their leaders for information about God. In 1401, the devil moved upon King Henry IV to decree that anyone owning or producing a translation of the Bible would be burned at the stake. Consider the next verse and notice that the last word is “short.” This word is significant in this context because Lucifer’s demise is coming. Those who see you stare at you, they ponder your fate: ‘Is this the man who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble, the man who made the world a desert, who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home?’ ” (Isaiah 14:12-17, italics mine), Ezekiel knew that God would permit the devil to physically appear before the human race. Ever since the day that Adam and Eve sinned, a flawless lamb has been used to represent the sinless life of Jesus Christ. On the other hand, the woman consists of born again individuals, those who supremely love God and their neighbors and uphold God’s advancing truth. There were even male shrine prostitutes in the land; the people engaged in all the detestable practices of the nations the Lord had driven out before the Israelites.” (1 Kings 14:22-24, italics mine). He has strategically placed his demons and human agents (demon possessed people) in highest places. David wrote, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills [mountains], from whence cometh my help [from my God].” (Psalm 121:1, KJV, insertions mine) The true God in Heaven no longer dwells on Mount Moriah. Each religious system worships a different God. Comment: After Jesus ascended to Heaven, the devil used the Jews and the Romans to persecute Christians with unbelievable zeal. When a Jew contemplates becoming a Christian he must face severe social consequences that are painful and agonizing. Civil authorities will end up doing the devil’s dirty work! . Billions of people who refused to accept the gospel of Christ will embrace the devil on the basis of his counterfeit miracles, signs, and wonders. When Jesus descended on Mount Sinai to speak the Ten Commandments, the whole mountain was set on fire! When the fourth seal is opened, a fourth of Earth’s population will be killed. If God had killed Lucifer and his followers before the outcome of their rebellion matured, the remaining angels would have concluded that God was a bully. He managed to cut off the right ear of Malchus, the high priest’s servant. God does not have to defend Himself. Today, Jesus and Lucifer are striving to win the affections of people. Let me quote from the great British Bible scholar William Barclay. When the mob rushed into the garden to lay hands on Jesus, Peter whipped out his fisherman’s knife and a brief scuffle ensued. When Peter saw that Jesus was not going to defend Himself and overcome His enemies, Peter denied that he knew Jesus because Peter was not prepared to share in Christ’s condemnation and death. (Genesis 10:25) For thousands of years, God reserved a large parcel of Earth that would one day help the woman. . Lucifer and one-third of the angels rebelled against God. Humility is the soil that nurtures faith in God, God’s promises are the sunshine, and the Holy Spirit is the rain. In other words, the 1,260 year (A.D. 538-1798) time period is mentioned three times in the Bible. Then, tell the Lord “thank you” for dying on the cross in your place. The testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of prophecy. The mark of the devil, literally, “the etching of Lucifer,” will be a tattoo on the right hand or the forehead! Persecution keeps those who love the world and the things of this world out of the invisible church. His number [of remaining people] is 666.” (Revelation 13:16-18, italics and insertions mine). Persecution kept the faith of the woman pure for 1,260 years. (Remember, God loves His enemies just as much as He loves His friends and He commands us to do the same. . Comment: Jesus will release Lucifer and his angels from the Abyss at the fifth trumpet and He will permit Lucifer to use miracle working powers so that people will believe his lies. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. (Daniel 4:31-33) At the end of his sentence, God not only restored the king’s mind, but He also restored the king to his throne. Christians who believe in a pre-tribulation rapture think they will be in Heaven, even though the Bible clearly says the dragon will make war against the “remnant of the woman.” On the other hand, people who believe the leopard-like beast and the forty-two months of persecution took place during the Dark Ages are just as misguided. This is why he was on Patmos. Therefore, to meet and worship their gods, they dutifully climbed rugged mountains. The (ten) toes of Daniel 2 (see verses 42-44) symbolize Lucifer’s ten kings. In fact, four of his angels will kill a third of mankind (Revelation 9:15) and his ten puppet kings will use military force to ensure that rebellion is not tolerated. He will report to his respective king. Consider the glorious scene that takes place on the 1,265th day of the Great Tribulation. Consequently, very few parishioners spoke out about the excesses and abuses of the clergy because the cessation of sacraments meant the loss of eternal life. When this happens, a search committee is usually created and empowered to find a piece of property where a larger facility can be built. After the powers of the papacy were broken in 1798, the Protestant Reformation blossomed for a few years in Europe and the United States, and then it fragmented into many pieces. You have been cast down to the earth, you who once laid low the nations!” (Isaiah 14:12, italics mine), “How you have fallen from heaven, O star of the morning, son of the dawn! This calls for wisdom. The Jubilee Calendar is in operation during this period, therefore the 1,260 days must be translated as 1,260 years (Rule Four of Apocalyptic Prophecy). Summarizing, the seven heads represent the seven religious systems of the world: Heathenism, Atheism, Judaism, Eastern Mysticism, Islam, Catholicism, and Protestantism. Lucifer’s assumed name (unknown at this time) will not be numerically equivalent to 666. how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!” (Isaiah 14:12, italics mine), “How you have fallen from heaven, O morning star, son of the dawn! Incidentally, and this is an important point, God did not create a plan of salvation for Lucifer and his angels because they were confronted with the truth many times yet remained willful and defiant, and chose to reject God’s counsel. The rapture concept seems incongruous when we know that God deliberately handed the woman (the saints) over to the Roman Catholic Church for 1,260 years of persecution! Study the following verses and notice that Lucifer and his angels were cast into the earth; therefore, their release from the Abyss is synonymous with coming up out of the earth. Comment: John’s use of language confuses a lot of people. . So they had to make a choice. Success. The 1,335 days given in Daniel 12:12 represent the total time allotted to the Great Tribulation. God’s greatest frustration is not with political leaders, but with religious leaders who claim to know Him. You may recall that God did the same thing with the religious leaders in ancient Babylon. Working through carnal minded church leaders, Lucifer gained control of the visible church. When Almighty God has something to say, He speaks and there is a revelation of information that is otherwise unknown. You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. When people are persecuted for humbly doing the will of God, they have no bitterness or anger toward their predators because they accept through faith that it is God’s will that they pay the price that His truth demands. (See Genesis 41 and 42.) There were temple prostitutes, both male and female, associated with the worship of Baal. He is armed and ready. This visible church exalts unity at the expense of truth. The devil rejoices to see innocent victims suffer and die.
