REVELATION 16:14 &16
14 They are demonic spirits that perform signs, and they go out to the
kings of the whole world, to gather them for the battle on the great day
of God Almighty. 16 Then they gathered the kings together to the
place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
2 The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.
3 The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast.
4 People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the
beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the
beast? Who can wage war against it?” 5 The beast was given a mouth to
utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for
forty-two months. 6 It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander
his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. 7 It was
given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them.
1. HIS PERSONALITY.
a. He is a man of CHARM.
b. He is a man of WORDS.
2. HIS PROGRAM.
a. He will set up a one world GOVERNMENT.
7 And it was given authority over every tribe, people,
language and nation.
b. He will set up a one world ECONOMY.
16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free
and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their
foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had
the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its
name. 18 This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight
calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a
man. That number is 666.
c. He will set up a one world RELIGION.
8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast - all whose names
have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was
slain from the creation of the world.
11 Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had two horns
like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 12 It exercised all the authority of
the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship
the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And it performed
great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full
view of the people. 14 Because of the signs it was given power to perform
on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth.
7 It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to
3. HIS PASSING.
11 I saw heaven standing open and there before me was a white horse,
whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice he judges and wages
war. 12 His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He
has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself. 13 He is
dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God.
14 The armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and
dressed in fine linen, white and clean.
15 Coming out of his mouth is a sharp sword with which to strike down the
nations. “He will rule them with an iron scepter.” He treads the winepress
of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty. 16 On his robe and on his thigh
he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
19 Then I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies
gathered together to wage war against the rider on the horse and his army.
20 But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had
performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those
who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two
of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. 21 The
rest were killed with the sword coming out of the mouth of the rider on
the horse, and all the birds gorged themselves on their flesh.
