THE BEAST FROM THE SEA (Part Two) [Revelation 13:6-10]

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John” [Revelation 1:1]

1. The Beast declares war against God.
The Bible says: “And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven” [Revelation 13:6] The mouth speaking “blasphemy against God” is Satan working through the Beast to spew antichrists into the world, as the Bible says: “…it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time” [1 John 2:18] Every false doctrine preached in the name of Jesus Christ is blasphemy against God and aggravated assault on the Bride. There were also “antichrists” in Sodom in the days of Lot, and God; “…delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)” [2 Peter 2:7-8] The mouth of the Beast is wide open and God’s children are daily provoked by reckless blasphemy of men of corrupt minds, “…destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness…” [1 Timothy 6:5] They proclaim every altar as the tabernacle of God, to make merchandise of the souls of men, in open defiance of Truth, as it is written: “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” [1 Corinthians 3:16] God does not dwell in tabernacles made by men, but in His Saints [1 Peter 2:5] Satan cannot touch God but fights a war of attrition against His Saints, using darts of false doctrines and blatant lies to pull men down with him to the lake of fire [Revelation 20:10] If truly you have received Jesus Christ I challenge you to arm yourself with shield of faith; “… wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked” [Ephesians 6:16]

2. The Beast declares war against the Saints.
The Bible says: “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” [Revelation 13:7] The war began with blasphemy and shall be filled up with vicious oppression and blood. This persecution must not be confused with the tribulation that follows translation of the Bride. God allows His Saints to be tried in this hour, not as punishment, but to purge and bring them to conformity with Christ, as the Bible says: “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy” [1 Peter 4:12-13] Our trial by ordeal is sure prophecy, a “light affliction”, and no course of prayer and fasting will change it [2 Corinthians 4:17] The sword of the Beast is already drenched in blood, with the slaughter of Christians in parts of the world. This is the “beginning of sorrows” and child’s play compared to what is ahead [Matthew 24:8} I am not a prophet of doom, but I warn every soldier of Christ to stand fast. We have a war on our hands and the; “…weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds” [2 Corinthians 10:4] I caution those who are stockpiling guns to fight for God to desist from folly. The hour of our tribulation is here and many shall be overcome by death, but the Lord shall raise us to glory at His coming. Therefore fear not; “…them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell” [Matthew 10:28]

3. The Beast demands to be worshipped.
The Bible says: “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world” [Revelation 13:8] The sole objective of satanic warfare is to win souls and foist Satan as god over the earth. The Beast and his mentor have no real need for gold or swathes of real estate but will offer both and more for your soul. The devil made his offer to Jesus Christ, as it is written: “Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me” [Matthew 4:8-9] The Beast is presently doing the same, dishing “kingdoms of the world” to those who bow and worship him, in the guise of new world order. As the world worships at the feet of the Beast, in a mad scramble for relevance, many Christian organizations and religious groups are caught in the rat race. An ominous cloud of delusion hovers over the Church, as shepherds mortgage their souls to the devil and sell their flocks to the Beast for gain, as it is written: “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness” [2 Thessalonians 2:11-12] Denominations, congregations and souls that will not endure sound doctrine, are readily deluded to believe and worship the LIE. God is not mocked and knows His own. He has their names in His Book, men and women redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ from all nations and we shall be glorified in Him at His Coming [2 Timothy 2:19]

4. God’s final plea to the world.
The Bible says: “If any man have an ear, let him hear” [Revelation 13:9] This short verse is God’s final plea to all men as we sail into the tail winds of the last days. God, in times past, sent prophets and at the appointed time spoke to; “…us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds” [Hebrews 1:2] The patience of God over the ages was accounted as “slackness” as He waited for the world to repent and escape eternal damnation [2 Peter 3:9] Now, God has drawn the line and will finish His work and; “…cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth” [Roman 9:28] Before His final move, God is reaching out for the last time to those who are inclined to listen, that time is fast running out. He is calling you to choose liberty in Christ over bondage to sin and eternal life over perdition. The Almighty is drawing attention to prophecy and events leading to the end of the present world to draw the Church from slumber and complacency. As the Lord lives, the earth shall be purged with fire, as it is written: “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” [2 Peter 3:10] There shall be no escape for the wicked, even for those building rockets to resettle on the Moon and Mars, for thus says the Lord: “…though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD” [Obadiah 1:4] I witness that these things are true and plead with all men to amend their ways and seek the Lord when He may still be found.

5. I charge you to be strong in faith and patience.
The Bible says: “He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints” [Revelation 13:10] God knows what you are passing through to maintain your faith and integrity in Jesus Christ. He knows the wiles of false brethren and of sorcerers pretending to be pastors and bishops. The Lord is aware of diverse temptations and distress of the present world. He wants you to be strong. You must not lose your patience or allow your faith to be dissolved in adversity [Proverbs 24:10] Brethren, I counsel you to remember the scripture that exhort us, saying: “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” [Romans 8:18] We have God’s sure word of prophecy that Satan, who leads to captivity and the Beast, that kills with the sword shall soon be bound and cast into the lake of fire, as it is written: “And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” [Revelation 20:10] As we look forward to the coming of the Lord, I appeal to you to encourage yourself and others in FAITH and PATIENCE. Hold tight to your FAITH in Jesus Christ and in godly PATIENCE, have your rest in the promise of His Coming. If any man has ear, the door of salvation is open today, tomorrow may be too late, let him receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, amen.
