People's Bible Notes for Revelation 13:13


Re 13:13 And he doeth great wonders. The second beast did great wonders, pretended to perform miracles, and thus "deceived them that dwell upon the earth" (Re 13:14). Rome has claimed the possession of miraculous power in all ages, and no fact in history is better established than that she has continually resorted to lying miracles.

  • The truth for verse 13
    False prophets will show a form of godliness using the name of JESUS which has a general power to deceive many people
  • John Hazelwood for verse 13
    I can only think, that in this day and age( 2013), that fire from the sky could mean secret technology made public in a form, like UFO's. Remember the shadow government of America has had technology of this kind since the 50's. Sixty or so years of secret refining.
