People's Bible Notes for Revelation 13:14


Re 13:14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles. The object of these false miracles was to rivet the chains of the spiritual dominion, so as to build up the temporal sway of the papacy. The dragon-lamb commanded men to make an image of the beast, and to offer it homage.

Discussion for Revelation 13

    The 5 mos isn't literal and is long past. Rev. is done chronologically and you have to understand what a chiasm is, the literary writing style of the day to get when the time periods change. All these prophecies use a day for a literal year just like in Daniel ,which is needed to unlock Revelations AND fills in all the blanks. Futurism came from the beast- Rome herself to take eyes off her- really

    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.

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.

    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.
