Verses

All verses in this section help explain events in other sections of this series

 

To understand this diagram, the verses for them; one must know what our spiritual being (soul and spirit) and physical being (mind and body) are.

Faithful; those who followed God before Christ’s death - Believers; those who loved Jesus after His death

 

In Revelation the beast can refer to a kingdom, a man or 2 different demonic beings who possess a physical man. We will identify each one as follows: beast (kingdom) is the 7th evil kingdom which will reign over the world; man (beast) refers to a physical man who will be king over the 7th kingdom until he is killed; the beast/antichrist/man of sin or 1st beast refers to a demon who will spiritually possess the man (beast) after he is killed; will then reign over the world for 3½ years. The last beast we will refer to as the beast (false prophet), or just the false prophet will be a demonic possessed man who will promote and carry out the work of the beast/antichrist/man of sin.

The beast/antichrist/man of sin got his name as follows: Jesus and Daniel call him the beast; John calls him the antichrist; Paul calls him the man of sin; see 47. below. Since satan, and all of the beasts are so evil and detestable; we will not give them the honor of capitalizing their names.

 

45. satan gives his throne to beast (kingdom), calls all on earth to fight war with this kingdom and control world

 

God showed Daniel a vision of the evil kingdom (Babylon) which was now ruling over the world, and the 4 evil kingdoms who would rule over this world in the future. Daniel’s vision showed a great image of a man which was made up of different metals; each metal symbolizing the evil Kingdom (beast) it represented. The 7th and last evil kingdom (beast) to rule over this world will be a divided kingdom of 10 nations. 

*"You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image, whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome. This image's head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver, its belly and thighs of bronze, its legs of iron, its feet partly of iron and partly of clay. Da 2:31-33 NKJV+

*"After you, another kingdom will rise, inferior to yours. Next, a third kingdom, one of bronze, will rule over the whole earth. Finally, there will be a fourth kingdom, strong as iron--for iron breaks and smashes everything--and as iron breaks things to pieces, so it will crush and break all the others. Just as you saw that the feet and toes were partly of baked clay and partly of iron, so this will be a divided kingdom; yet it will have some of the strength of iron in it, even as you saw iron mixed with clay. Dan 2:39-42 NIV+

 

There will be 7 evil nations who will rule over the earth;

1. Egypt, 2. Assyria 3. Babylon (gold) 4. Medo/Persia (silver); 5. Greece (bronze) 6. Roman, (Iron) 7. 10 divided kingdoms (partly clay; partly iron)

 

1. Egypt, 2. Assyria; Daniel was not shown any countries who ruled over the world before Babylon, the kingdom Daniel was living in as a captive.

3. Babylon (gold); the country who now ruled over the world

4. Medo/Persia (silver); 5. Greece (bronze); which have ruled over the world

6. Roman, (Iron) which ruled at the time Jesus lived on the earth, crucified Jesus. 

7. Divided Kingdom; partly Iron (Roman Empire) partly clay (other nations mixed with Roman Empire); 7th and last evil kingdom which will rule over the world

Number 7 signifies a completion of a work of God; number 8 signifies a new beginning, Jesus will return to rule His Kingdom on earth for 1,000 years.

 

Bible prophecy contains what has and will happen in these 7 evil Kingdoms, as God uses one evil Kingdom and king after another to rule over the world; trying to get Israel’s and then believers’ attention. If one generation will look back, they will know what will happen to them also; for there is nothing new under the sun; all the prophecies in the Old and New Testament will be completed. Until the new beginning of the 8th and last earthly kingdom comes; and Jesus reigns over the earth for 1,000 years.

*What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Eccl 1:9 ESV+

 

When satan (dragon) is thrown down to the earth, he knows his time is short; he will be enraged when he is unable to kill those of Israel who God will save from him at Petra (See F. 43). satan same as the devil; are referred to as the dragon and the serpent.

So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Rev 12:9 

*Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!” Rev 12:12 ESV+

 

satan and the demon who will come up from the Abyss both know when this demon will become the beast/antichrist/man of and rule over the world for 3½ years. For this demon, with satan as his arbitrator, would petition God’s court in the 1xt heaven to extend the appointed time (now a law); and give the beast/antichrist/man of sin more time to reign over the world, which God’s court rejected. This had to be done before satan was thrown to the earth and no longer allowed into the 1st Heaven; and the demon was confined into the Abyss. As both would no longer have access to God’s Court in the 1st Heaven.  

*He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.  Da 7:25 NKJV+ Time 1year, times 2 years, ½ time ½ year, = 3½ years

*"'But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. Da 7:26 NIV+

*Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. Rev 12:7-8 ESV+

 

satan will summon the 10 evil kingdoms who are trying to make a socialist one world government,  and all other people on earth who will follow him. So they can start a war to control the world, especially Israel and those who follow God, who believe in Jesus.

*So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Rev 12:9 NKJV+

*Then the dragon became furious with the woman and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea. Rev 12:17 ESV+

 

satan (dragon 2nd verse above) will then give his power, throne as prince (ruler) over the earth, and authority to the beast (kingdom), comprised of 10 divided kingdoms which have come out of the nations (sea). As these 10 divided nations start to rule the world as a one world government.

*And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems and on his heads were blasphemous names. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. Rev 13:1-2 NASB+

 

Sea can refer to the waters over which the harlot sits; which are peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues.

*Then he said to me, "The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. Rev 17:15 NKJV+

 

10 Horns represent 10 divided kingdoms; 7 heads represent 7 evil Kings which have or will reign over the world; all blasphemed God as they ruled the world.

10 diadems = represent 10 kings who will wear a golden crown; showing individually they will or are ruling over one of these 10 divided kingdoms/nations.

 

Many believe leopard – bear – lion: represent 3 countries who are part of 10 divided nations of this beast (kingdom); probably leading it. Leopard Germany, bear Russia; lion England; who will come together with 7 other countries to make a one world government which will try to control the world.

 

Others believe leapard – bear – lion represent: three kingdoms which have ruled the world; Babylon (lion now Iraq); Medo-Persian (bear now Iran; and Greece (leopard)

 

Daniel tells us then there will be a fourth beast (kingdom) which will consist of ten nations (horns) which will be different and stronger than all the rest of the beast kingdoms which have or will reign over the world. And the beast (man) will come up among this kingdom which has 10 kingdoms; be the king over this kingdom for a short period, will subdue, pull out by the roots 3 other kingdoms.

*"After this I kept looking in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrifying and extremely strong; and it had large iron teeth. It devoured and crushed and trampled down the remainder with its feet; and it was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns. Da 7:7 NASB+

*"While I was contemplating the horns, behold, another horn, a little one, came up among them, and three of the first horns were pulled out by the roots before it; and behold, this horn possessed eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth uttering great boasts. Da 7:8 NASB+

 

We do not know who these nations will be, will wait to see which nations start to form a socialistic one world nation. Very likely some will be from the European Union; the U.S. could be part of them, maybe one which is subdued by the beast (man).   

*The first was like a lion and had eagles’ wings. Then as I looked its wings were plucked off, and it was lifted up from the ground and made to stand on two feet like a man, and the mind of a man was given to it. Da 7:4 ESV+

 

Jesus tells us there will be 10 evil kings in this last divided kingdom which will rule over the world; they will receive authority for one hour; a short period of time. The man (beast) will come up among them, receive authority with them as kings for a very short period of time (one hour). 

*And I saw a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous names on its heads. Rev 13:1 ESV+

*"The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast for one hour. Rev 17:12 NASB+

 

Horns refer to the 10 divided nations; 10 diadems on its horns refers that each kingdom has or will have a different king over them.

 

God will use these 10 kings (horns) and the beast (man) to carry out His plan to destroy the great city that has dominion over the kings of earth. The prostitute refers to the city which will have control over the earth at this time; the city is called a prostitute for it is adulterous to God, has rebelled against Him and follows the worldly desires of satan.   

*And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire, for God has put it into their hearts to carry out his purpose by being of one mind and handing over their royal power to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. And the woman that you saw is the great city that has dominion over the kings of the earth.” Rev 17:9-10 ESV+

*And the angel said to me, “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages. Rev 17:15 ESV+

 

We do not know which city this will be; could be New York, Washington DC, London, Belgium, Rome, or many other cities which could be the main city of the one world government of the 10 divided nations. Or it could even be Babylon which now has no power. Nor do we know which city Babylon symbolizes later when God’s bowl of wrath poured out on it. It could be any of the cities which controls the world, which has become a home for the demons and every evil spirit, who kings of the earth have followed her wicked ways, while growing rich with her, past or present.

*With a mighty voice he shouted: "Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and detestable bird. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries." Rev 18:2-3 NIV+

 

This will happen just before this man (beast) is possessed by a demon becoming the beast/antichrist/man of sin, and given power over the whole world. For the next angel tells us Babylon has fallen; then warns us not to worship or take the image, or mark on our forehead or hand of the beast/antichrist/man of sin whose reign over the world will soon begin. Or they will have to face the wrath of God, being thrown in Hell, and tormented in the lake of fire and brimstone.

*And another angel followed, saying, "Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication." Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his handhe himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: Rev 14:8-10 NKJV

 

The beast (man) will begin to rule over the world, with the 10 kings who gave him their power. He will subdue 3 of these kings, for they will no longer follow him; and will take the diadems (ability to rule over their kingdom) away from the rest of the 7 kings, and claim himself king over them. For he now wears their 7 diadems, is now king over these 7 nations. his evil kingdom is the same evil kingdom that satan (dragon) had when he gave his throne to the 10 kingdoms. 

*'As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and another will arise after them, and he will be different from the previous ones and will subdue three kings. Da 7:24 NASB+

 *And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. Rev 12:3 ESV

 

The beast (man) will be the 7th king to blaspheme, and claim to be god; he will blaspheme God the same as the 6 other kings who have ruled over the world and blasphemed God. These 7 kings together are shown as the 7 heads coming out of the sea (world) with blasphemous names. Then the demonic beast/antichrist/man of sin will be given the power to reign over the world for 3½ years; when he blasphemies God and claims to be god in God’s Temple in Jerusalem, see 52. 2nd paragraph.    

*"Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all. Da 11:36-37

*And the dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. He had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on his horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. Rev 13:1 NIV+

 

The beast (man) will now strike out on his own to conquer the world; fighting against the kings and nations who will oppose him. Using a foreign god that he shall acknowledge and advance its glory; which will help him rule over many and divide the land for gain.

*Thus he shall act against the strongest fortresses with a foreign god, which he shall acknowledge, and advance its glory; and he shall cause them to rule over many, and divide the land for gain. Da 11:39-40 NKJV+

 

The beast (man) will use a foreign god to help him; when the demon comes and spiritually possess this man, becoming the beast/antichrist/man of sin, God will give him the power to rule over the world. he will not need another god to help him control the world; and the beast/antichrist/man of sin will claim to be god, will not promote another god, will not need another god to help him destroy his enemies.

 

The beast (man) will be tired from fighting the kings of the North, East, and South; will bring his armies and followers between the seas around or in Israel and place his royal tents there. The man (beast) will come to his end when he is killed and a demon possesses him; for this is God’s plan for him and no can help him.

 *"At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. He will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand. Da 11:40 NIV+

*"But rumors from the East and from the North will disturb him, and he will go forth with great wrath to destroy and annihilate many. "He will pitch the tents of his royal pavilion between the seas and the beautiful Holy Mountain; yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him. Da 11:44-45 NASB+

 

The countries he is fighting might be some of the 3 countries he subdued or related to them, for these people though they lived and married within the 10 divided nations in a one world government; they will never adhere to the beast’s (man) kingdom, will break away from him, end up fighting him.

*As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay. Da 2:43 NKJV+

 

We know this is the beast (man) for when the demonic beast/antichrist/man of sin comes; God will give him the power to rule over the world, he will not have to worry about any nations which oppose him.

 

46. beast (man) becomes beast/antichrist/man of sin when demon ascends to earth and spiritually possesses him

 

The reign of the 6th king (one is), referred to the Roman Emperor (Domitian) who ruled over the world at the time Revelation was written (around 90-96 AD). The 7th king who (has not yet come), will be the man (beast) who (must remain a little while) until he will be killed (is not anymore). He will be the (beast which was and is not), for his spiritual being (soul + spirit) will go to Hades. The man (beast) dead physical body will then be brought to life again when possessed by the spiritual being of the demon from the Abyss; who then becomes the (beast/antichrist/man of sin) and the 8th king  who will rule over the world (is himself also an eighth). Though the demonic (beast/antichrist/man of sin) will still be the same physical man as the man (beast)  who was the 7th king (is one of the seven) and be one of the 7 physical men who will be kings, rule over the world, then go to their destruction in the Lake of Fire.

*and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while. "The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction. 17:10-11 NASB+

*"The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up out of the abyss and go to destruction. Rev 17:8 NASB+

 

satan (dragon) will give his authority to the beast/antichrist/man of sin, after he possesses the man (beast) physical body and gives life back to it (fatal wound was healed) as the demonic beast/antichrist/man of sin. Then most important of all; God gives the beast/antichrist/man of sin the authority to reign over the world, for 3½ years (42 months = 3½ years).

*I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beastthey worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?" Rev 13:3-4 NASB+

*The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. Rev 13:5 NIV+

 

Only God can give the power for anyone to rule over the physical world; and will also give knowledge to those who will search God’s Word for understanding.   

*And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding. Da 2:21 NKJV+

 

Jesus and then Daniel call the beast/antichrist/man of sin who will reign over the world, simply the beast.

*And when they have finished their testimony, the beast that rises from the bottomless pit will make war on them and conquer them and kill them, Rev 11:7 ESV+

*"Then I kept looking because of the sound of the boastful words which the horn was speaking; I kept looking until the beast was slain, and its body was destroyed and given to the burning fire. Dan 7:11 NASB+

 

John tells us the man who will rule the world, would be demonic (evil spirit not from God); who was in the world at the time of John. John warns us there will be many spirits which will come in the end times, until the antichrist comes. 

*Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 1Jn 2:18 NKJV+

*but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. 1Jn 4:3 NIV+

 

Paul calls the beast/antichrist/man of sin, the man of sin or the man of lawlessness; which adds the last name we use for this demonic beast. Paul further identifies the beast/antichrist/man of sin as the man of perdition who is revealed when he sits in God’s Temple in Jerusalem; exalting himself above God, showing himself as God.

*Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin [Nu-Text reads lawlessness] is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. 2Thess 2:3-4 NKJV+

 

47. All heard about Jesus, did not follow him; God deludes to follow beast/antichrist/man of sin, take his mark

 

There will be a falling away, defection from the truth about our God, as the beast/antichrist/man of sin time to rule over the world grows closer; until the demon from the Abyss comes to possess the man (beast) physical being.   

*For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. Matt 24:24 ESV+

*And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has not been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that he was and is not and will come. Rev 17:8 NASB+

 

satan will try to mimic God, try to make the physical death of the man (beast), his coming back to life as the beast/antichrist/man of sin; be the same as Christ physical body being killed and then being resurrected from the dead. This will cause many to believe that the beast/antichrist/man of sin is god, the one who will rule over the world; especially those who believe in Conservative Judaism. For to them this will seem like their Messiah has finally come to rule over the earth.

*One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was astonished and followed the beast. Rev 13:3 NIV+

So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?"

 

All who have heard about Jesus, even believe they are Christians, but do not love our God above all things; along with all of those who have heard the truth about Jesus but have rejected Him; will be deluded by God to believe the lie that the antichrist/man of sin/beast is god and follow him. This will include those in congregations, churches, prayer groups, or friends who we worship with; who have not put Jesus first in their lives. They will help the beast/antichrist/man of sin to kill all believers who will not worship him as god. 

*And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2Thess 2:11-12 NKJV+

 

What is even worse is that this will split families apart, into 2 groups; those who believe in God’s Word (Bible) as the truth and love Jesus, obey His commands. From those who follow the ways of this unrighteous world, and put Jesus second. Any who have not put God first in their lives; will help the beast/antichrist/man of sin to kill those who truly believe in in our God. Even the people they love most; the members of their own family, their spouse, their children, their close friends, those they worship with in their congregations and churches. They will hate anyone who loves Jesus, help the beast/antichrist/man of sin to kill them. This is very scary, very sad; we must try to bring all to Jesus, warn them and pray for them, before it is too late.

*"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a swordFor I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law-- a man's enemies will be the members of his own household.' Matt 10:34-35 NIV+

*"Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; Matt 10:37 NIV+

 

48. 3½ years of Enoch/Elijah to witness are over; beast/antichrist/man of sin kills these 2 prophets/witnesses

 

The power of the 2 prophets/witnesses will be taken from them by God, when their 3½ years to bring Israel back to God at His new Temple in Jerusalem is over. Then their ability to protect those in Israel (Judea) and Jerusalem are over, see F 39.; and the 3½ years for the beast/antichrist/man of sin to rule over the world begins. The first thing the beast/antichrist/man of sin will do is kill the 2 prophets/witnesses, Enoch and Elijah; to show the world that he is god, more powerful than the 2 prophets/witnesses.

*Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. Rev 11:7 NIV+

 

Jesus will take their spiritual beings (soul and spirit) to the 2nd Heaven while their bodies will remain on the earth. The beast/antichrist/man of sin will so despise the 2 prophets/witnesses, Enoch and Elijah, that he will not let the dead physical bodies of Enoch and Elijah be put in a tomb or buried; but show their dead bodies to all the world over the news and social media. The world will rejoice that they have been killed, because the 2 prophets/witnesses had been a torment to all in the world who do not love our God.

*and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city that symbolically is called Sodom and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified. For three and a half days some from the peoples and tribes and languages and nations will gaze at their dead bodies and refuse to let them be placed in a tomb, and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and make merry and exchange presents, because these two prophets had been a torment to those who dwell on the earth. Rev 11:8-10 ESV+

 

49. Enoch/Elijah first after Jesus; to die, ascend to 2nd Heaven with glorified bodies; 1st Jew, then Gentile

 

But after 3½ days God will give Enoch’s and Elijah’s physical bodies life once more; their spiritual beings (body and soul) will come down from the 2nd Heaven to earth; to be reunited with their dead physical bodies, which will be glorified. Then they go up in a cloud to the 2nd Heaven in glorified bodies. 

*But after the three and a half days a breath of life from God entered them, and they stood up on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here!” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies watched them. Rev 11:11-12 ESV+

 

Enoch and Elijah were the first to come up to the 2nd Heaven in glorified bodies, because they pleased God while they lived on earth; and salvation will always be first for the Jew, then the Gentile.

* By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God. Heb 11:5 ESV+

*I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. Ro 1:16 NIV+

 

This will be like all believers who have died, and their spiritual beings taken to the 2nd Heaven. Jesus will bring down their spiritual bodies in Heaven with Him to the clouds over earth. Then He will resurrect their dead bodies on earth and take them up into the clouds over earth; to be reunited with their spiritual beings from the 2nd Heaven. Then take them to the 2nd Heaven to be with Him forever. This will be discussed in H Jesus returns for us; comes to establish His Kingdom on earth, which we hope to have for you soon.

 

50. 144,000 firstfruits; first without dying ascend into 2nd Heaven in glorified bodies; 1st Jew, then Gentile

 

God will choose 144,000 servants from all of the tribes of Israel, who will love Jesus and be loyal to Him. They will be sent out to minister to Israel after the 2 prophets/witness have come. God will protect them against all of the tribulation which will come through the 5th trumpet.

*saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads." And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed: Rev 7:3-4 NKJV+

*They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. Rev 9:4 NKJV+

 

After the 2 prophets/witnesses are killed when the antichrist/man of sin/beast comes into power; they will be the first to be taken by God into the 2nd Heaven without physically dying on earth. They will be the firstfruits to our Father and Jesus; for they had been redeemed without dying, given glorified bodies, and then taken to the 2nd Heaven. Jesus died before He received His glorified body.

*Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. Rev 14:1 NASB+

*It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been redeemed from mankind as firstfruits for God and the Lamb, Rev 14:4 ESV+

 

Since they will be the firstfruits of all who would be redeemed without dying; the 144,000 could sing a new song before the throne of God, a song which no others in the 2nd Heaven could learn or sing at this time. For no others at this time had come into 2nd Heaven without first physically dying on earth. Every part of salvation will always be first for the Jew, then the Gentile.

*And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. Rev 14:3 NIV+

*I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. Ro 1:16 NIV+

 

51. In glorified spiritual bodies; Enoch/Elijah after dying, then 144,000 servants without dying come here (Kingdom of God in 2nd Heaven)

 

*But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christwho will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. Phil 3:20 ESV+

*It is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body. 1Co 15:44 NKJV+

*And as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly Man. 1Co 15:49 NKJV+

 

52. God’s court starts beast/antichrist/man of sin year reign; he blasphemes God in His Temple at Jerusalem

 

The beast/antichrist/man of sin will be given power by God’s court for 3½ years (same as 42 months, or time - 1yr + times 2yrs + ½ time = 3 ½ yrs). The beast/antichrist/man of sin will then blaspheme God, His name, and those who dwell in Heaven (angelic beings, believers spiritual beings after they have physically died on earth).

*He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time. Dan 7:25 ESV+

*There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him. And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven. Rev 13:4-5 NASB+

*It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him. Rev 13:7-8 NASB+

 

Jesus was given years to minster how He would save us; the 2 prophets/witnesses will be given 3½ years to bring Israel back to God; then the beast/antichrist/man of sin will be given 3½ years to rule over the world, try to turn all into following satan. 

 

Paul tells us the beast/antichrist/man of sin will be given power when he proclaims to be god in God’s Temple in Jerusalem. Jesus then warns all in Judea (Israel) who had been protected by the 2 prophets/witnesses; to flee to the mountains when they see the beast/antichrist/man of sin standing in the Holy Place (in Old Covenant the holiest part of the Temple which only God was to go in).

*who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. 2Thess 2:4 ESV+

*“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Matt 24:15-16 ESV+

 

The beast/antichrist/man of sin will only have power over the physical world; God will always control His holy spiritual Kingdom. The beast/antichrist/man of sin will have control over the physical world, believers’ and unbelievers’ physical bodies; but he will never have control over believers spiritual beings (soul and spirit). The Holy Spirit will never be taken out of the world, will always live in the hearts of believers, will guide and keep believers children of God; will never stop trying to bring unbelievers to Christ until Jesus returns for us.

*No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ro 8:37-39 NIV+

 

53. 6th trumpet sounds; God uses demons to kill 1/3 of world; defeating armies of world for beast/antichrist/man of sin.

 

When the 6th trumpet sounds; God will use the demons He turned loose in the 5th trumpet (E 41.), along with all the demons (satan’s angels) He threw to earth with satan, to kill 1/3 of the people who are living on the earth. This will happen at the correct time, when the 4 demons (bound means they did not obey God; some believe they are angels) who were prepared for this day, hour month and year; will be allowed by God to lead all the demons to cross the spiritual boundary of the Euphrates River, and attack the world.

*Then the sixth angel sounded: And I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before Godsaying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, "Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates." So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third of mankind. Rev 9:16 NKJV+

 

Until the 2 prophets/witnesses years are over there will be a spiritual boundary for these demonic beings; they cannot come into Israel. For God has given them this time period for to bring Israel back to God at His Temple in Jerusalem. When their time is up God will turn lose 2 hundred million demons upon the world, to kill 1/3 of the people who will be living on the earth. 

* Now the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million; I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision: those who sat on them had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow; and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions; and out of their mouths came fire, smoke, and brimstone. Rev 9:16-17 NKJV+

*By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulfur coming out of their mouthsFor the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents with heads, and by means of them they wound. Rev 9:18-19 ESV+

 

We know these are demons for they fit the description of those who tormented the world for 5 months in verses below; and both times God had control over these demonic beings, when they could come, what they could do. God only gave demons the power in the 5th trumpet to torment, not kill people for 5 months; and in the 6th trumpet in verse above, He only gave demons the power to kill 1/3 of the world, and in the Bible verses in next paragraph below they could kill only unbelievers.

*In appearance the locusts were like horses prepared for battle: on their heads were what looked like crowns of gold; their faces were like human faces, their hair like women’s hair, and their teeth like lions’ teeththey had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the noise of their wings was like the noise of many chariots with horses rushing into battle. They have tails and stings like scorpions, and their power to hurt people for five months is in their tails. Rev 9:7-10 ESV+

*"Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing will injure you. Lk 10:19 NASB+

 

We believe the demons will kill primarily unbelievers; that God is testing the unbelievers who worship other gods and have not come to Him. For those who will be tested still will not repent or come to God. This will include the nations who have a strong army, with different religions which will not want to be controlled by the beast/antichrist/man of sin. God will not only use the demons to test the people of these nations; but many will be killed, crippling these nations’ armies ability to function and not pose any threat to the beast/antichrist/man of sin during his 3½ year reign. 

*But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts. Rev 9:20-21 NKJV+

 

The beast/antichrist/man of sin will now bring his army which is located somewhere between the seas and Jerusalem; against Judea, especially Jerusalem. For the 2 prophets/witnesses have been taken out of the way, the last barrier for him to begin his reign, and complete his war to conquer the world. Then his army will continue after the other countries which have been decimated by the demons, and now he can defeat easily. His army will continue to grow with all the people who will follow him, the many countries who will try to appease him and not be destroyed.

*"But rumors from the East and from the North will disturb him, and he will go forth with great wrath to destroy and annihilate many. "He will pitch the tents of his royal pavilion between the seas and the beautiful Holy Mountain; yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him. Da 11:44-45 NASB+

*“So when you see the abomination of desolation spoken of by the prophet Daniel, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Matt 24:15-16 ESV+

 

54. During beast/antichrist/man of sin reign, more tribulation, killing than the world has or will ever see. Anyone not worship him as god killed, do not take his mark starved to death, can’t buy or sell without his mark.

 

The beast/antichrist/man of sin will have another demon possessed man who will promote and carry out his will; the false prophet, the 2nd beast. The false prophet will be like a lamb, deceiving people that the beast/antichrist/man of sin is their only chance for peace upon the world. Yet he will speak like a dragon (satanic demon) as he will force all to worship the beast/antichrist/man of sin as god; who’s deadly wound was healed.  

*Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. Rev 13:11-12 NKJV+

*And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Rev 16:13-14 NKJV+

 

The false prophet will have a warm and loving way and many speculate that this demonic possessed man who becomes the false prophet may be the Pope; who will promote a one world socialist government as the fairest and only way to save the world. Then the false prophet will speak as the true demon; causing all whose name is not written in the book of life to follow and worship the beast/antichrist/man of sin.

 

The false prophet will have the power when the beast/antichrist/man of sin is present; to deceive those on earth by the magical signs he will be able to perform. This will cause some on the earth to make an image of the beast/antichrist/man of sin which the false prophet will give the ability to talk and the power to kill those who would not worship this image. This image will also require all people to take the mark of the beast/antichrist/man of sin; either his name or number (666) on their hand or forehead, to be able to buy or sell any products or services. This making many to die because of starvation, lack of medical help, and the inability to get items they will need to survive.

*And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. Rev 13:14-15 NKJV+

*Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the foreheadso that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. Rev 13:16-17

 

There is much speculation as to whom the man (beast) who will become the 7th king is. But since no one has the ability to know who this man will be, we will wait until God reveals more on who he will be.

*This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666. Rev 13:18 NIV+

 

6 is an imperfect number, symbolizes evil acts: 7 symbolizes a perfect number, a completion of a work of God.

 

6th seal: satan through Gog, comes after Israel, in the War of Gog

7th seal: silence in Heaven after God defeats those who come after Israel; the 2 prophets come with God’s power to protect Israel, bring her back to God

 

6th trumpet: antichrist is given power over the world, over saints (believers)

7th trumpet: Jesus returns in the clouds, takes all believers to Heaven, defeating death and satan

 

6th bowl: satan/antichrist/false prophet gather armies to come after Israel at Armageddon

7th bowl: Father’s judgment is complete; Jesus defeats satan/antichrist/false prophet; becomes King over earth

 

666 symbolizes a completely imperfect number, a completely evil number; symbolizes satan, beast/antichrist/man of sin, the false prophet, all demons, and mankind’s physical being (mind and body).

 

777 symbolizes a completely perfect number, a completely holy number; symbolizing our God, all His angelic beings, and the spiritual being (soul and spirit) of all believers; for they have been made perfectly holy by Jesus’ blood which was shed on the cross for our sins.

 

Believers must never worship the beast/antichrist/man of sin or take his mark on their forehead or hand; or they will be condemned to the torment of Hell/Lake of Fire.

"If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his handhe himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: Rev 14:8-10 NKJV

 

This calls for patience endurance and faithfulness of the believers; all who have the Holy Spirit living in their hearts. If anyone is to go into captivity, or be killed by the sword; they will go into captivity or will be killed. Our physical body and mind is weak, afraid of death; yet if the Holy Spirit is living in believers’ hearts, He will give us the ability to overcome our fear of death. The Spirit will give us the faith to know that Jesus is always with us; and will take our spiritual being to Heaven to be with Him forever if we are killed, or when we die.

*He who has an ear, let him hear. If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity he will go. If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword he will be killed. This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on the part of the saints. Rev 13:10 NIV+

*And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it. Matt 10:38-39 NKJV+

 

We believe that just as Israel will only have 1/3 of their people saved; that  only a similar 1/3 of those who believe they are Christians, will be saved.

*In the whole land, declares the Lord, two thirds shall be cut off and perish, and one third shall be left alive. And I will put this third into the fire, and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested. They will call upon my name, and I will answer them. I will say, ‘They are my people’; and they will say, ‘The Lord is my God.’ ” Zech 13:8-9 ESV+

 

Yet God will protect some of Israel from the 3½ reign of the antichrist/man of sin/beast. Jesus promised to protect a remnant of Jewish believers in the 7 early churches. He never asked His Father to take them out of the world; but that He would keep them from the evil one, satan, the beast/antichrist/man of sin, and all the other demons.

*Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth. Rev 3:10 ESV+

*I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. Jn 17:15 ESV+

 

The woman in the verse below symbolizes the 12 tribes of Israel (crown of 12 stars); the nation Jesus came from. Daniel confirms that there is a place in Eden and Moab (Petra; F 44.) which God will not let the antichrist/man of sin/beast rule over, which will be a safe haven for the believers of Israel.  

*A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars; Rev 12:1 NASB+

*She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days. Rev 12:5-6 NIV+

*"He will also enter the Beautiful Land, and many countries will fall; but these will be rescued out of his hand: Edom, Moab and the foremost of the sons of Ammon. Da 11:41 NASB+

 

55. When beast/antichrist/man of sin year reign is over; God’s court will take away his power, destroy it forever                  

 

When the 3½ year reign of the beast/antichrist/man of sin is over, God’s Court will take away his power (dominion) to rule over the world, will consume and destroy this power forever.

*He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.  Da 7:25 NKJV+

*'But the court shall be seated, And they shall take away his dominion, To consume and destroy it foreverDa 7:26 NKJV+

 

56. Fourth Kingdom Earth; becomes Kingdom of God and Jesus at 7th trumpet; reign beast/antichrist/man of sin ends

Since Adam sinned, satan has been prince over the 1st heaven and the earth; but satan will lose his rule over the 1st heaven when God throws him, all his demons down to earth. satan’s demon the beast/antichrist/man of sin will then be given complete physical control those who live on earth; until his 3½ years are over. Then at the 7th trumpet earth will once more become the Kingdom of God and Jesus.

*The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever." Rev 11:15 NIV+

*And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying, “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty, who is and who was, for you have taken your great power and begun to reign. The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.” Rev 11:16-18 ESV+

 

Once the kingdom of earth becomes the kingdom of God, of Jesus; Jesus can now gather (rapture) all the physical bodies of believers up into the clouds over earth when He returns for us. The next section; H. Jesus returns for us; comes to establish His Kingdom on earth, will continue at the 7th trumpet when Jesus returns in the clouds for all believers. We hope to have this written soon.
