People's Bible Notes for Revelation 13:17


Re 13:17 That no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, etc. It has been common for Catholics to be forbidden to patronize those who were not loyal to the Pope. At least three councils are named, those of Tours, of Constance and the Lateran, which have expressly forbidden business intercourse with heretics.

Discussion for Revelation 13

  • Word
    I don't find the word mysterious all you have to do is read it real slow and catch what it's saying. Get an old Strong's concordance cause the new ones aren't worth much. It's like for example the Kings of the earth in the Revelation are not the supernaturals that come with Satan. Chapter 17 tells much symbolism. Revelation tells you the water are the people when it speaks of water/sea/people.
  • Word
    First vs the sea are people. Ten crowns are 10 supernatural Kings that come with Satan and they are 100 percent against God and the beast that rises out of the people is a one world system. Leopard Deut. 32 Song of Moses their spots are not our spots. Kenites, Satans small people that will help him rise to power. Russia is the bear and the Lion it looks as if it's Judah. Satan will sit there.

    The World is fully Mysterious. But there is still Truth in it and that Truth reveals in the 66 books of the "Holy Bible". So, what peoples are talking about the Revelation chapter 13 it gives us good idea all about the end time Anti-Christ. But, still we are not yet reach the climax. While our Savior Jesus Christ will come on earth during the melleniel kingdom then, we will understand all about it. Just keep on your arguments and opinions. Because, it gives us the clue. God says, "'While two of you gather in my name on earth there is me." So, where there is God the truth is there. It seems, all your opinions are true. But, we have to adjust it and pick up the right points. Who knows, it may take place by 2017 or may be after 2045 or more longer years to come. It just gives us the clue points. So, dear readers, Who is coming on being an antichrist just keep on your eays wide watching till you die or just pass on to someone who lives next to you. While Jesus was on earth the Anti-Christ was there. And since then he is present and will be till Second Coming of Christ. He may be from Rome or Israel or may be other parts of the wotld. Yes, he is still been antichrist who says and does angaist Christ. They are the group of peoples who are counted as a computerized number 666, in an accounting manner of one Government, one Religion, one Currency Policy. They are the people who lies the truth and speaks blasphemies agaist the God. They are already existed now and their plans are secretly going on. So, be carefull.....do not follow them...their doctrines have similarities with the Bible, but, diverted from the four Gospels Books of Christ. Alas for them who follow their doctrine !!!

    TICK TOCK GOES YAHUAH'S HEAVENLY CLOCK.
  • Word
    When Satan and his 10 kings from out of the pit get here and claim that antichrist is Christ and they are disguised as ministers of light all the churches will gladly follow him because as Daniel tells us he is going to spread prosperity around and the churches today love that religious free buck their golden dollar. Satan will ha e no problems with a one world system of churches.
  • Word
    Barbara you won't miss CHRIST coming. His brightness will make the Sun look to disappear and hail stones mixed with fire will hit Jerusalem because Satan will be there pretending to be CHRIST which is antichrist translated instead of Christ. The world will be deceived in Satans deception for two and a half months but when you see his coming just buy food for 3 months and pay your bills up.
