People's Bible Notes for Revelation 13:6


Re 13:6 He opened his mouth in blasphemy. Three kinds of blasphemy are named: (1) against God; (2) against his tabernacle; (3) against those to whom God has opened his tabernacle. The first would be accomplished by usurping God's prerogatives; the second by maledictions upon the true Church, and the third by curses on the true worshipers.

    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.

    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

    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.
