Discussion for Revelation 13:7

  • Joe Moore for verse 7
    I think the tares will be gathered first just as it says in Matt. 13- the parable of the wheat and tares. These are the words of Jesus, yet every one completely ignores this end times prophesy. Why?
  • Chimwamo for verse 7
    This is the event following the 100% rapture of the church as no saint left behind would ever prevail over the antichrist in his time of full manifestation. Not even Israel will get saved after the rapture.
