People's Bible Notes for Revelation 13:10


Re 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity. "If any man [is] for captivity, into captivity he goeth" (Revised Version). The meaning is "Whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap" (Ga 6:7). "With what measure a man meets, it shall be measured to him again" (Mt 7:2 Mr 4:24 Lu 6:38). If the beast and his adherents lead the saints captive, they shall finally be made captive; if they slay with the sword, so shall they be slain. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. The assurance that God will, in the end, right all their wrongs gives them faith and patience.

Discussion for Revelation 13

  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Beast out of the sea is from populated area(nations,peoples,kindreds and tongues) and has crowns. Killed saints. Dark ages Rome/Europe. The earth beast rises( about same time 1 st falls) out if an unpopulated area, has no crowns and then also rules world. It will adopt a system of 1st one, image- Senate, tyrannical oppression and commandment trampling self righteousness. Any guesses? God help us.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Everything in its proper time frame indeed. I don't the the antichrist is going to baptise with the Holy Spirit Tongues do any of you? God will send Elijah to baptise His chosen elect Zion and be brought into our Blessed Lords sheepfold as His Holy Word has spoken, Glory Amen. Calling Elijah the dragon comes straight out of the Vatican itself. Their not going to stop my Abba Dad
  • Word
    Continents there are 7 and the beast rises up out of the sea, let me guess? Oh, waters are the people and they have 10 horns with crowns well, let me guess that's 10 kings! That means 10 kings over 7 continents over all the people of the world and I wonder who there leader is who comes to deceive the whole world who looks like the Lamb and speaks like the dragon and who is over the 1st beast. SEA!
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    Rest assure Vatican Rome shall face open Justice once and before all before this age closes out and they know it. There Truly is a God in Israel and our Blessed Lord Christ is Truly seated at His Right Hand. Gods Holy Word will be fulfilled Glory Amen and Amen. Elijah is neigh at hand and they know it. The True Bride will be throughly purged with the Living Fire of the Holy Ghost Glory to God Amen
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Rome. 7 heads, 10 horns just like in Daniel. The sea is "nations,kindreds
  • Word
    There are two 2 beasts in Revelation Satan the son of perdition the false messiah the antichrist who is instead of Christ who will preach fly away for those who want to rapture with him. That beast has a religious whore who is a second beast who rises up from out of the water and the waters in Revelation are the people. Mystery in Greek if you look it up and search its religious whore.
