Revelation 13:11-18 “The 2nd Beast and The Mark” – #1489 – 12/29/2013

IN REVELATION 13:11-18 WE SEE THE 2nd BEAST is the false prophet who will support the 1st Beast (Antichrist) and have power to do miracles. Jesus said that “false christs & false prophets will rise & work signs & wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect” (Matt.24:24). It is dangerous to follow signs & wonders. Satan can perform supernatural things to deceive people, and he will establish a religious system based on these signs & wonders. Don’t assume that all signs & wonders must come from God.
The Antichrist will also institute a cashless economic system. In the name of security & efficiency he will place a mark (Greek: charagma – English: stamp) on the right hand or forehead of all people, & it will be impossible to do business without the mark. Just a few years ago people scoffed at this idea. But with the advent of computers & the problem of identity theft, & crimes involving cash, this will be an idea easy to sell the people. And this will give the Antichrist complete economic control of the world’s systems.

“The Child, The Son of God” – Celebrating the Birth of Christ 2013 – 12/22/13 – CD#2013

A CHILD IS BORN, A SON IS GIVEN. This prophecy from Isaiah 9 regarding Jesus Christ is one of the clearest Scriptures to indicate the deity of Christ. What child has ever been born who could be called “Mighty God”? The Prince of Peace, who will one day rule and reign, is the Child who was born in Bethlehem of the virgin Mary. He was a Child who was born, but He was also a Son who was given. God gave His Son. He was fully God and fully man. A Child and a Son.

NEXT WEEK 12/29/13 WE WILL RESUME OUR RIDE THROUGH REVELATION WITH THE REST OF CHAPTER 13.

Revelation 13 “The Unholy Trinity” # 1488 – 12/15/13

REVELATION 13 REVEALS THE FINAL WORLD POWER THAT WILL BE RULED BY SATAN’S UNHOLY TRINITY. Satan (the Dragon) will give power & authority to the 1st Beast that rises out of the sea (anti-Christ). He will be “resurrected” after being mortally wounded. The 2nd beast will come performing great signs & wonders to deceive those who are on the earth at this time. He will cause the people to worship the first beast (anti-Christ).
Can you see Satan’s counterfeit trinity? The dragon giving power & authority is a counterfeit of the Father. The ruler of the final world power is the counterfeit Christ as described in Daniel 7. And the counterfeit Holy Spirit is the 2nd beast who will perform great signs and wonders, and point people to anti-Christ and cause them to worship him.

Revelation 12 “The War & The Winners – #1487 – 12/8/13

THE MISSION OF SATAN, (the dragon of Rev.12), having been cast out of heaven, along with a third of the angels who rebelled with him, is to destroy Jesus, the Child who was born of Israel, (the Woman of Rev.12). Satan knew that if he could destroy Jesus, mankind would be without any hope, and easily destroyed. The plot of Herod to kill the baby boys born in Bethlehem was one of Satan’s attempts. The temptation of Jesus to convince Him to avoid the Cross, was also a part of Satan’s war on mankind. But that old dragon was defeated when Jesus died and was “caught up to God and His throne,” and our salvation was secured, praise God! We are more than conquerors over sin and death because of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.
