THE BEAST IS COMINGThese are the end times (of a truth they are) and now is the time to get saved. We need the Lord Jesus Christ right now and we need him when we die. May you save yourselves from this untoward, wicked, and perverse generation (ref. Acts 2:40) calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Look at all the sins in this wicked world. Each man, woman, boy, and girl has contributed their share of sins by lying, stealing, etc. The Lord Jesus Christ was nailed to a cross where he shed his precious blood in order to pay for our sins so that we can be forgiven of our sins. But our Lord Jesus Christ did not remain dead--it was not possible that the Son of God should be holden by death (Acts 2:24). God the Father raised his holy child, Jesus, from the dead on the third day and now he is alive for evermore watching over his church and helping us. If you are not saved, you need to be saved. We all need the blood of Jesus to cleanse us from our sins so that we can know God through his word, the holy Bible, and do what is right. The gospel message is simple, (1) Repent of your sins, (2) believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose from the dead, and (3) obey the beautiful, perfect, life-giving words of Jesus (ref. Heb. 5:9). When you get saved by the blood of Jesus and start obeying the word, you get a new kind of life and a new mind. Thieves stop stealing and start living honestly. Liars start telling the truth. Whoremongers start walking uprightly. Drunkards become sober and upright. Behold, all things become new when you call on the name of Jesus and live your life by the words of Jesus which are found in the Authorized King James Bible of 1611.
"...if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." II Corinthians 5:17
The man of sin is coming soon and he is going to deceive the whole world and rule it. The Bible teaches that BY PEACE HE SHALL DESTROY MANY (ref. Dan 8:25). People are going to like him, wonder at him, worship him, follow him--including church hypocrites and every unbeliever. I perceive that after the chaos that now looms on the horizon, his solutions will be welcomed by the unsaved. Saved people will understand exactly what is happening and who this man is, but none of the wicked shall understand. The man of sin will be an obvious antichrist to those who are saved. There are many antichrists (I John 2:18), the man of sin will be the king of them all. People who are antichrist deny God the Father and his holy child, Jesus (ref. I John 2:22)). THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST IS ALREADY IN THE WORLD AND GAINING MORE POWER, MOMENTUM, AND PROMINENCE BY THE MOMENT. The antichrist is going to shew who and what he really is when he opens up his mouth in blasphemy and implements his oppressive policies and laws--Revelation 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
Revelation 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
Daniel 8:23 ...when the transgressors [sinners, people who do not keep God's commandments] are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.
Daniel 8:24 And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power [his power comes from that old serpent called the Devil and Satan]: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people [he will make war with the saints and overcome them, Rev. 13:7].
Daniel 8:25 And through his policy [his laws and rules and regulations] also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand [evilness and sins will prosper under him, he is the man of sin and sinners will cleave to this evilness]; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many [he acts like a man of peace and people will believe his words about "peace." People worldwide will be deceived, deluded, and fooled--to their everlasting detriment.]: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand [after his time of evil is finished, he will be destroyed notwithstanding all his pronouncements and evil acts].
This wicked individual, empowered by Satan, will oppose God and then have the audacity to sit in the temple of God showing himself that he is actually God. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again, but first there must be a falling away and that man of sin be revealed--II Thessalonians 2:2-4 ...the day of Christ is at hand..
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God
Revelation 13 calls this man, "the beast." It teaches that the beast receives his power from the devil himself--the devil is Satan. Some people call him Lucifer. The beast may call himself Christ, but he is Antichrist and he opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God (ref. II Thes 2:4). But he will not stop there. The beast is going to make war against the saints (Rev 13:7) and overcome them physically, but even so, saved people will overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb (who is the Lord Jesus Christ) and by the word of their testimony. Unsaved people will take the mark of the beast in their right hand or in their forehead--ALL PEOPLE THAT TAKE THIS MARK WILL GO TO THE LAKE OF FIRE WHERE THEY WILL BURN FOR ALL OF ETERNITY.Revelation 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
Revelation 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and HE SHALL BE TORMENTED WITH FIRE AND BRIMSTONE in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb [Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God who was slain to pay for our sins. He rose from the dead three days later.]:
Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: AND THEY HAVE NO REST DAY NOR NIGHT, WHO WORSHIP THE BEAST AND HIS IMAGE, AND WHOSOEVER RECEIVETH THE MARK OF HIS NAME.
If you want eternal life, now is the time to get saved and get your testimony for the Lord Jesus Christ. If you do not want to spend eternity in hell and the lake of fire, NOW IS THE TIME TO GET SAVED AND WORSHIP GOD THROUGH HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, JESUS CHRIST, WHO IS GOD MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH. OUR LORD AND SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST CAME TO GIVE US LIFE, AND THAT MORE ABUNDANTLY, BUT THE DEVIL'S MAN (YEA, ALL THE DEVIL'S MEN), COMES FOR OPPRESSION AND EVIL AND SINS. THE DEVIL AND HIS MINISTERS COME NOT BUT FOR TO STEAL AND TO KILL AND TO DESTROY.
Revelation 13 teaches that unsaved people worldwide will wonder at the beast and worship him. These people will also worship the dragon who gives him his power (the dragon is that old serpent called the Devil and Satan). The devil gives the beast his power and all the people worldwide will accept that and will actually worship the devil himself. Understand that even the devil can appear as an angel of light (II Cor 11:14). The devil can make the unsaved think he is good and peaceful. All he has to do is put on a costume and say some "kindly" words and put a smile on his face. Those that know the word will immediately hear those "kindly" words as dragon speak because they will say the opposite of what the Authorized Version of the Bible says.
The beast will have a false prophet who will perform miracles--all of the unsaved people of the world will be totally impressed with those lying miracles. The false prophet will perform those miracles in order to deceive people. There is only one group that will not be deceived--saved people, those that believe in Jesus Christ and are obedient to his word. Unsaved people will worship the beast and wonder at his war-making abilities. And if they want to buy and sell in the marketplace and go to the grocery store, the doctor, etc.--they will take his mark in their right hand or in their forehead (Rev. 13:16). The Bible teaches that everyone who takes that mark will go to the lake of fire. If you are unsaved when the man of sin comes, you will be impressed with him too because you will be deceived. Time is winding up and the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back. Anyone who is not saved when he comes back will take their place in the lake of fire. Read more about the beast in Revelation chapter 13 of the Authorized Version of the Bible.
The Bible prophesied that there would be a falling away of the church into error. Many, many church people--including preachers, deacons, "bishops," etc.--are on their way to hell. They do not follow the holy scriptures. They do whatever they want to do and live just like the world. Don't depend on "church" to save you. You need to read the Authorized King James Bible of 1611 for yourself and obey it. People distort the truth and make up all kinds of lies, myths, stories, and legends--you need to get yourself an Authorized King James Bible (with all the thee's and thou's--NOT the new modern versions). If you know God's word for yourself nobody can fool you, and trick you, and deceive you. NO ONE! Jesus left ALL of his commands, instructions, comforts, and warnings for us in the Authorized Bible (not these new, modern counterfeit Bibles like the NIV that delete verses). Attacks against the word of God and our precious Lord Jesus Christ are rapidly increasing as time is winding up and the return of the Lord Jesus Christ draws near. Judgment day is coming. Now is the time to get ready. When the book of life is opened you will want your name there. If it is not, you will go to the lake of fire for all of eternity (Rev. 20:15), that place of everlasting shame and contempt (Dan 12:2) where their worm dieth not and their fire is not quenched (Isa. 66:24, Mark 9:44, 46, 48). Now is the time to prepare. There are many antichrists in the world. If you get saved and read your Authorized King James Bible, they will not fool you.
Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me,
let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels;
and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
