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.

    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.
  • 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

    Donald W. Revelation is a fascinating book given to us for our learning. It had difficult parts, but what is intended for our learning today isn't impossible to know with study. Most of the book ready came to pass as is stated in first chapters things at hand and will short come to pass. I suggest Introduction

    These beasts are world superpowers named in Daniel. Daniel was WAY back there looking forward, John in Rome looking back, thus reason for the inverted order. Same ol beasts, different vantage point. The conclusion of the prophecy is upon US like a duck on a June bug. It is Christ's will for us to know these things. All reformers and most folk did til about 100 years ago. Healed wound hid it.
