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.

    Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For after all these things do the Gentiles seek: for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

    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.
  • John
    Read Revelations 4 verse 9 then Read Isaiah 44 verse 20 it would be great to read all of chapter 44 and then focus on verse 20
