Verses

 

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

 12 tribes of Israel: Jewish/Israel refers to the Jewish people who remained around Jerusalem and all in the 10 northern tribes of Israel 

 

Using terms for Revelation which will be explained with verses in the sections below, including printed verses of those listed in this top section

 

1. beast(kingdom) - the 7th evil kingdom made up of 10 evil kings and the beast(man), and will reign over the world for a short time Rev 17:12

 

2. beast(man) - a physical man who will be 7th king to rule over the earth, and he will be a Jew. He will become beast/antichrist/man of sin when a demon possesses him Rev 17:10

 

3. beast/antichrist/man of sin; is the beast(man) after he is physically killed and a demon spirit comes out of the Abyss to possess his dead physical body, mind and spiritual being; giving the beast(man)’ body life once more as an evil demon possessed man. God will allow him to rule over the world for 3½ years Rev 13:5

 

4. false prophet(man) will be a physical man from the tribe of Dan, one of the tribes of Israel. He will be possessed by a second different demon coming out of the Abyss Rev 13:11 

 

5. false prophet(beast): is the false prophet(man) after a second different demon will come out of the Abyss and possess the physical body, mind, and spiritual being of the false prophet(man). We do not know if false prophet(man) will die or be alive on earth when this will happen. Then the false prophet(beast) will promote and carry out the work of the beast/antichrist/man of sin in his presence. Rev 19:20

 

The name beast/antichrist/man of sin reflects the different names used in the Bible for the same evil demon possessed man who will rule over the world for 3½ years before Jesus establishes His 1,000 year Kingdom on earth. 

 

 Jesus and Daniel call the beast/antichrist/man of sin who will reign over the world, simply the beast. Jesus also calls the beast/antichrist/man of sin the “first beast” (Rev 13:11-12).

*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 calls the beast/antichrist/man of sin who will have a demonic evil spirit who will possess him, the antichrist. There were demonic spirits already in the world at the time John wrote these chapters (85-95 AD), and there are and will continue to be many evil demonic spirits, like the antichrist in the world who will try to pull us away from Jesus. Yet God will bring up the demonic spirit of the antichrist from the Abyss at the right time to possess the beast(man), right after the beast(man)  will be killed (Rev 11:7).

*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 son 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+

 

The beast(man) will be a Jewish man and the false prophet(man) will be from the tribe of Dan

 

God’s Word tells us the first to be thrown into Hell, the Lake of Fire are the beast/antichrist/man of sin, and the false prophet(beast).  

*But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. Rev 19:20 NIV+

 

This shows us the beast/antichrist/man of sin and the false prophet(beast) will be from of the nation of Israel; for the Jewish/Israel will always be the first to receive God’s blessings His eternal gifts of salvation, then the Gentiles. Likewise the Jewish/Israel will also be first to receive God’s wrath including God’s last wrath and punishment of the eternal flames of the Lake of Fire, Hell.

*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+

*There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; Ro 2:9 NIV+

 

 

God’s requires two witnesses to validate the truth; the beast/antichrist/man of sin) and the false prophet(beast) will bear witness that the Jews will always be the first to receive trouble and distress. For they will be 2 Jewish/Israel men possessed by different demons, who will be the first to be cast into the Lake of Fire, Hell.

*It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is trueI am One who bears witness of Myself, and the Father who sent Me bears witness of Me." Jn 8:17-18 NKJV+

 

Though beast/antichrist/man of sin and the false prophet(beast) will be Jewish/Israel, does not mean they will live in Israel; for one can be Jewish or of a tribe of Israel (Dan) and live anywhere. Yet Israel is their homeland, even if they have never lived here, and they can come back to Israel. And they will come back to Jerusalem to the Temple to rule over the world. Less than 50% of the Jewish people live in Israel; U.S. has almost 40% living in it.

 

Confirmation both the beast/antichrist/man of sin and the false prophet(beast) are demon possessed

 

The beast/man will be a physical man who comes to power on earth, then is physically killed and possessed by a demonic spirit giving his body life once more; and becomes the beast/antichrist/man of sin. 

*The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come. Rev 17:8 NIV+

 

Likewise a physical man living on earth will become the false prophet(beast) after he is possessed by a demonic spirit coming out of the earth. 

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

*And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. Rev 13:14 NASB+

 

This shows the beast/antichrist/man of sin and the false prophet(beast) are demon possessed men

*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+

 

Jesus told us in Revelation, that the beast(man) who would become the beast/antichrist/man of sin number would be 666. Since we should look in the Bible first, there are only 4 times 666 is used in the Bible:

 

(1) 666 An imperfect number in Revelation which shows man number.

 

*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. If number is used more than once, squared or cubed, it increases its intensity makes it greater. A number used 3 times or cubed means the highest intensity or greatest amount possible.

 

666 Complete evil: satan, beast/antichrist/man of sin, false prophet(beast), and all mankind’s physical bodies and minds 

 

777 Perfect holiness: Our God (Father, His Son Jesus, Holy Spirit) and all believers’ spiritual beings (soul and spirit) 

 

Shows how God defeats satan in Revelation; at the end perfect holiness triumphs over complete evil

 

6th seal: satan through Gog’s army of men, comes after Israel, in the War of Gog, see F. 35

 

6th trumpet: beast/antichrist/man of sin given power over world, as demons with his army of men defeat all other armies 46-48 below

 

6th bowl: satan, the beast/antichrist/man of sin, and false prophet(beast); gather armies of men to come after Israel at Armageddon H. 62-64

 

666 Complete evil 

 

7th seal: God, Lamb’s wrath defeats Gog’s armies; silence in Heaven, 2 prophets with God’s power come to bring Israel back to God see F. 35, 36

 

7th trumpet: Jesus returns in the clouds, takes all believers to His Father’s Kingdom in 2nd Heaven H. 57-60   

 

7th bowl: Father’s wrath is completed; Jesus defeats armies brought by satan, beast/antichrist/man of sin, false prophet(beast) at Armageddon H. 65; then establishes His Kingdom, becomes as the King over the world earth. I. 72

 

777 Perfect holiness

 

(2) 666 used for the 2nd and 3rd times in reference to King Solomon from the tribe of Judea as to the type of man the beast(man) will be.

 

The beast(man) will come in the mirror image of King Solomon who was from the tribe of Judah (later called Jews); the tribe of God designated all the kings of Israel should come from. The beast(man) will be very smart as God gave Solomon wisdom, and Solomon became the smartest and greatest King Israel ever had. During Solomon’s reign God blessed Israel and Solomon; Israel was at the height of her glory and power, which this nation has never seen since. 

*Now the weight of gold which came to Solomon in one year was 666 talents of gold, 2 Chron 9:13 NASB+ (also 1Ki 10:11)

*Now the weight of gold which came in to Solomon in one year was 666 talents of gold, 1Ki 10:14 NASB+

666 talents of gold = 25 tons = 50,000 pounds, = 800,000 ounces. Today’s price for gold is $1957 per/ounce which would make this worth $1,565,600,000.

 

Yet though Solomon was blessed by God, when he was tempted by satan with beautiful foreign wives he did what was detestable to God.  Solomon turned his heart after their gods, made a place for his foreign wives to worship the many false gods they had; where they could sacrifice their babies to please their gods by putting them into pits to be killed by the flames. 

*For it was so, when Solomon was old, that his wives turned his heart after other gods; and his heart was not loyal to the Lord his God, as was the heart of his father David. 1Ki 11:4 NKJV+

*On a hill east of Jerusalem, Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the detestable god of Moab, and for Molech the detestable god of the AmmonitesHe did the same for all his foreign wives, who burned incense and offered sacrifices to their gods. 1Ki 11:7-8 NIV+

*And if the people of the land do at all close their eyes to that man when he gives one of his children to Molech, and do not put him to death, then I will set my face against that man and against his clan and will cut them off from among their people, him and all who follow him in whoring after Molech. Lev 20:4-5 ESV+

 

Because Solomon turned from God, and many of his people followed him; God punished Solomon, punished Israel after Solomon died by giving the ten northern tribes of Israel to her enemies. This left the tribes around Jerusalem (Judah, Benjamin, and the Levites who took care of the Temple at Jerusalem) as the nation of Israel. Israel as a nation no longer had any power, was but a shadow of her former glory, those remaining around Jerusalem and Judea were then referred to as Jews; though a few from the northern 10 tribes who managed to escape from their enemies captivity came here and were also referred to as Jews.

*He said to Jeroboam, "Take for yourself ten pieces; for thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, 'Behold, I will tear the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon and give you ten tribes (but he will have one tribe, for the sake of My servant David and for the sake of Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen from all the tribes of Israel), 1Ki 11:31-32 NASB+ Benjamin has part of Jerusalem in it, was put together with Judah to make up the 12 tribes of Israel.

 

God has blessed the U.S. because we followed Him, because we help Israel; has made us the greatest Christian nation their ever was. Yet that which has been done, will be happen again because the world is sinful, and the U.S. will someday fall just like Israel did under Solomon. Especially if our nations continue to suppress our freedom to worship as we want, and allow the babies God would have for His own to be murdered by abortion in a woman’s womb, if mother wants to for any reason. God will punish our nation like he did Israel when Solomon went away from God by helping his wives and others who followed him to murder their babies. God will no longer bless our nation, take away our power and we will be swallowed up by socialism/Marxism(communism) where we no longer will be able to freely worship our God. The U.S. will not have the power, or the will to protect Israel any more, and the War of Gog will begin the last years of this world as it now exists, see F-35.

*That which has been is what will be, That which is done is what will be done, And there is nothing new under the sun.  Is there anything of which it may be said, "See, this is new"? It has already been in ancient times before us. Eccl 1:9-10 NKJV+

 

There is much speculation as to who beast(man) will be using the number 666. But since no one has the ability to know who this man will be at this time, we will wait until God continues reveals more to us on who will become the beast(man); although it most likely will be a Jewish man from the Tribe of Judah.

 

(3) 666 used for the 4rd time in reference to the sons of Adonikam who were from the tribe of Dan, as to the type of man the false prophet(man) will be  

 

The false(beast) will be a physical man from the tribe of Dan, in the likeness of the sons of Adonikam who came out of captivity by the Babylonians to begin rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem. 

*The sons of Adonikam, 666. Ez 2:13 ESV+

*Now these were the people of the province who came up out of the captivity of those exiles whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried captive to Babylonia. They returned to Jerusalem and Judah, each to his own town. They came with Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Seraiah, Reelaiah, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mispar, Bigvai, Rehum, and Baanah. The number of the men of the people of Israel: Ez 2:1-2 ESV+ The sons of Adonikam, 666; are listed as part of these exiles in the verse above Ez 2:13

 

The false prophet(beast) a physical man will come like a peace loving man, like a lamb with 2 horns; though when a demon possesses him, he becomes the false prophet(beast) who will speak like a dragon (satan). The false prophet(beast) will have all of the authority of the beast/antichrist/man of sin when in his presence and will make all on earth worship the beast/antichrist/man of sin.

*Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. Rev 13:11-12 ESV+

 

The Bible tells us that Dan shall judge his people as a tribe in Israel; and will a serpent, a horned snake (satan/devil is a serpent, a snake, or a dragon) that is sneaky, hides in a path and then bites the horses heels so the rider falls backward and is killed. God will not use any from the tribe of Dan to be His servants in bringing the Gospel to Israel around the time the 2 prophets/witnesses come F. 38. Because the false prophet(beast) will be from the tribe of Dan and will come soon after trying to deceive all people away from God.

*"Dan shall judge his people, As one of the tribes of Israel. "Dan shall be a serpent in the way, A horned snake in the path, That bites the horse's heels, So that his rider falls backward. Gen 49:16-17 NASB+

*saying, “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”
And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel:
Rev 7:3-4 ESV+

Rev 7: 5-8 listed Tribes of Ephraim, Manasseh, and Joseph, which gave Joseph 3 tribes and replaced the tribe of Dan

 

Though when Jesus establishes His 1,000 year Kingdom on earth Dan is included in it, replaces Joseph which is represented by his 2 sons; Manasseh and Ephraim

*"These are the tribes, listed by name: At the northern frontier, Dan will have one portion; it will follow the Hethlon road to Lebo Hamath; Hazar Enan and the northern border of Damascus next to Hamath will be part of its border from the east side to the west side. Eze 48:1 NIV+

 

45. After Babylon defeated satan gives throne 7 heads/horns/diadems to Jewish beast(man), he comes to Israel

 

God gave Daniel a vision of the last 4 evil kingdoms which in the future would rule over this world. We must add the 2 previous evil kingdoms before the 3rd evil kingdom Daniel was living in; which make up all of the 7 evil kingdoms which have or will rule over the world.

*"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+

 

The last four evil kingdoms in Daniel’s vision were symbolized in metals which made up an image of a man; 3 of them have already been completed. We are awaiting the 7th and last evil kingdom, which was symbolically represented by the feet on the image of a man which had 10 toes, for this divided evil Kingdom it will have 10 individual separate kingdoms in it. These 10 individual kingdoms (10 toes) will be made up partly of iron which represents the strength of the evil Roman Empire; while the rest of the other separate individual kingdoms are represented by clay, which will mix with the iron (the kingdoms of the Roman Empire), and will help hold the 10 individual nations together as the 7th evil nation. 

*"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+

 

There were 3 evil kingdoms which ruled over the world before Daniel’s vision revealed the last 4 evil kingdoms which will rule over the world. All have been completed except the 7th and last evil kingdom which will be a divided evil kingdom of 10 separate individual nations; who the beast(man) will be king over and then the beast/antichrist/man of sin will be king over.

 

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

 

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

 

3. Babylon (gold); the evil kingdom Daniel was now in which who now ruled over the world

 

4. Medo/Persia (silver); evil kingdom which ruled over the world

 

5. Greece (bronze); evil kingdom which ruled over the world

 

6. Roman, (Iron) evil kingdom which ruled over world at the time Jesus lived on the earth, crucified Jesus to appease the Jews/Israel.

 

 

7. Divided Kingdom; 7th and last evil kingdom yet to come, rule over world; partly Iron (Roman Empire) partly clay (other nations mixed in with Roman Empire);

 

We do not know who these 10 kingdoms will be, will wait to see which nations start to form a socialist anti-God one world nation; very probable some will be from the European Union. The U.S. could be part of them if it becomes a socialistic nation, and joins up with other European nations to form a one world government; be part of the 7th evil kingdom which will try to destroy Israel, in the War of Gog. The US. could also lose our economic and military power for any reason, and not be able to protect Israel in the War of Gog; or be one of the countries which will be subdued by the beast(man) if the U.S, tries to support Israel before or in the War of Gog. The important fact being, the U.S. will not want to or not be able to support Israel, and without the military power of the US. backing many nations will come after Israel initiating the War of God. see F. 35

 

Bible prophecy contains what has and will happen when the last 7 evil Kingdoms begin ruling the world under a 8th evil king who is really the 7th evil King with a demon possessing his physical body and mind. God has and will use one evil Kingdom and king after another to rule over the world; trying to get Israel’s and then the Gentile believers’ attention. What has happened before, which will also happen to us; for there is nothing new under the sun, and the all the prophecies in the Old and New Testament will be fulfilled before Jesus will come to rule over His Kingdom on Earth for 1,000 years. Then the faithful/believers will come into our Heavenly Father’s New Heaven and Earth.

*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+

 

God will use 10 kings (horns) and the beast(man) to carry out His plan to destroy the great city (Babylon) that has dominion over the kings of earth. There will be 10 kings who with the beast(man) will receive authority for one hour, a short period of time, to destroy Babylon. 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+

*"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+

 

2 Babylons of Revelation

 

Babylon is a symbolic city which will be destroyed 2 times, whether this refers to 1 city being destroyed 2 times, or 2 different cities destroyed at different times we do not know. Nor do we know which city will be the 1st to be destroyed, it could be any of the cities which control the world now; New York, Washington DC, London, or any other city which becomes powerful. It could be a city which will develop to become the headquarters for the one world government of the evil 10 kingdoms/nations; Belgium, Rome, or many others. It could even be Babylon which was powerful but now has little power, but could become powerful again.

 

Babylon will be destroyed the 1st time by the coalition of the 10 kings (horns) of 10 separate kingdoms/nations and the beast(man). The 2nd angel will announce Babylon has fallen right before the 3rd angel warns us not to worship or take the mark of the beast/antichrist/man of sin; for the beast/antichrist/man of sin will soon begin his 3½ year reign over the world.   

 

1st time Babylon will be destroyed is before the beast(man) becomes the beast/antichrist/man of sin who God will give complete authority over the world, For then He will not need the power of the 10 other kings to help him defeat the 1st Babylon.

*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

 

Nor do we know which city the 2nd Babylon symbolizes when it is later destroyed when God’s bowl of wrath is poured out on it, which will happen after the beast/antichrist/man of sin 3½ year reign is over; for God’s wrath will not be poured out on the world until the beast/antichrist/man of sin reign is over. Just that the 2nd Babylon will be a city which has become a home for demons, every evil spirit; and the kings of the earth who have followed her wicked ways, while growing rich with her in the past or present.

 

The 2nd time Babylon destroyed

*Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, Rev 17:1 NKJV+

*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+

 

After the defeat of the 1st Babylon this 7th evil beast(kingdom) of 10 separate Kingdoms/nations (horns), will be different and stronger than all the 6 other beast kingdoms which have reigned over the world. In Daniel’s vision it devoured, crushed, trampled down all who were against it; and out of this 7th evil beast(kingdom) will come the beast(man) uttering great boasts.

 

See 45. above: Must add 2 previous evil beast(kingdoms), + 1 beast(kingdom) Daniel is living in = 3 beast(kingdoms); to come to the 4th beast kingdom which Daniel was shown, which makes it the 7th and last evil beast(kingdom)  

*"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+

 

The beast(man) will start his conquest to rule over the world, by subduing 3 of the kings of the 10 separate kingdoms which helped him defeat the 1st Babylon; and become kings over them. For these 10 kings will rule with him only for a short period (1 hour).

*'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+

*"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+

 

satan when he is thrown out of the 1st heaven and confined to earth (see F 43) will be in control over 7 of the 10 evil kingdoms/nations which will defeat Babylon. This includes 6 evil kings which have ruled over the world, and the beast(man) which is about to come into power makes 7. For satan is wearing 7 diadems (metal gold crowns signifying he is king) of the 10 evil kingdoms which will rule over the world. 

*And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole worldhe was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Rev 12:7-9 ESV+

*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+

 

satan will watch the beast(kingdom) rise up from the world. World symbolized by sea, for waters refer to peoples, multitudes, nations, and languages.

*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. Rev 13:1 NASB+

*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+

 

And then satan will give to the beast(man) his power, throne, and great authority. This will include his 7 heads, 10 horns, 7 diadems of his evil earthly kingdom.  

*Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. Rev 13:2 NKJV+

 

See also 45 above 2nd paragraph

 

10 Horns represent 10 evil separate individual kingdoms/nations which will be the last to rule over the world

 

satan has control over 7 heads representing 7 evil kingdoms/kings; 6 evil kingdoms/kings have already reigned over world, and the 7th divided evil kingdom/evil king to come which the beast(man) will now rule over.

 

satan will have 7 diadems represent 7 individual earthly metal golden crowns (diadems), showing satan is king over 7 of these 10 separate kingdoms/nations.

 

Add 3 diadems from the 3 kingdoms the beast(man) subdues = 10 diadems; satan will be the king over all the 10 separate kingdoms/nations which will be the 7th and last evil kingdom to rule over the world. 

 

Many believe leopard – bear – lion: represent 3 countries who are part of 10 individual kingdoms/nations of this beast (kingdom); maybe 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 leopard – bear – lion represent: three kingdoms which have ruled the world; Babylon (lion now Iraq); Medo-Persian (bear now Iran); and Greece (leopard)

 

satan will not give all of his authority or power to the beast(man); for satan will still have great power as shown when he goes after the Jewish/Israel believers fleeing Judea in last paragraphs of 49a below. But satan will try to imitate God, giving his throne to the beast(man) like God will give His Throne to Jesus when Jesus rules over His 1,000 year kingdom.

 

The mortal wound suffered by one of the 10 divided kingdoms/nations (10 horns); will have happened to this kingdom/nation before the beast(man) will be given power over it by satan. We believe that nation of Russia will be given a mortal wound when God will defeat them in the War of Gog, for their army will be slaughtered in the hills around Jerusalem. Yet Russia will make a dramatic comeback as a powerful nation and will be one of the 10 separate kingdoms/nations, though we do not know the exact nations who will be part of the 10 divided kingdoms, so it could be another nation who makes this comeback.  

*And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. Rev 13:3-4 NKJV+

*"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 NKJV+

 

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 (satan or other demonic being) that he shall acknowledge and advance its glory; which will help him rule over many and divide the land for gain.

*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?" Rev 13:4 NIV+

*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 satan or another demonic spiritual being (foreign god) to help him; until he is killed and God turns loose the demon from the Abyss who will spiritually possess the beast(man) physical body and mind, and becomes the beast/antichrist/man of sin. Then God will give the beast/antichrist/man of sin the power to rule over the world.

 

The beast(man) will be received into Israel, for the beasts(man) will be Jewish. He 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 beast(man) will later 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+

 

We know the beast(man) and the false prophet(man) will be Jewish; for they will be the 1st cast into the Lake of Fire. For it will always be 1st for the Jew to receive God’s punishments then the Gentiles; the first to receive glory; just like it will always be first for the Jews/Israel in all God’s blessings of salvation blessings, then the Gentile; Jews/Israel were the first come into God’s spiritual kingdom in the 2nd Heaven, first to be given indwelling of the Holy Spirit, first to be given glorified bodies (2 prophets/witnesses 2 witnesses) etc., then the Gentiles.

*There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. Ro 2:9-10 NIV+

*Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. Rev 19:20 NKJV+

 

The beast(man) and false prophet(man) will be the 2 witnesses God provides to prove unbelief will send you to Hell, Lake of Fire.

*"But even if I do judge, My judgment is true; for I am not alone in it, but I and the Father who sent Me. "Even in your law it has been written that the testimony of two men is true. Jn 8:16-17 NASB+

 

We know this is the beast(man), not the demonic beast/antichrist/man of sin. For when the demonic beast/antichrist/man of sin comes, God will give him the power to rule over the world and he will not have to worry about any nations opposing him. The countries the demonic beast/antichrist/man of sin will be fighting might be some of the 3 countries he subdued; for the 10 nations which will make up the 7th evil kingdom will never adhere to the beast(man) kingdom.

*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+

 

God will protect certain areas, for certain people; from satan, the beast(man) and the beast/antichrist/man of sin;

 

Edom, Moab, the main part of the Ammonites, which are now Jordan, during the 3½ reign of the beast/antichrist/man of sin. Some Jewish/Israel believers who will be kept safe in Petra which is located there, as well as all of the people who were living there. 

*He shall come into the glorious land. And tens of thousands shall fall, but these shall be delivered out of his hand: Edom and Moab and the main part of the Ammonites. Da 11:41 ESV+

 

Israel will be protected during the 3½ years the 2 prophets/witnesses will be given to bring Jews/Israel back to God. God gives them the power to call fire and plagues from 2nd Heaven on all who try and interfere with their message. See F 40.

 

46. 6th trumpet; demons from Abyss, help beast(man) defeat world’s armies to rule world, killing 1/3 people in it 

 

When the 6th trumpet sounds God will have His angel release the 4 demons (angels who became demons for they were bound, would not obey God) at the Euphrates River. They were prepared for this day, hour, month and year, and will be released by God to lead an attack on 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 9:14-15 NKJV+

 

These demons will lead an army of 200 million demons upon the world, with the army of the beast(man) following behind them destroying any who oppose the beast(man).  

* 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 the smoke and the brimstone which came out of their mouths. For their power is in their mouth and in their tails; for their tails are like serpents, having heads; and with them they do harm. Rev 9:18-19 NKJV+

 

The 2 hundred million demons include;

 

All the demons turned loose from the Abyss in the 5th trumpet will still be on earth see F 41

 

satan and all of his demons (satan’s angels) from the 1st heaven who will be thrown down and confined to earth by God see F 44    

 

The demons will only be allowed to only kill 1/3 of world’s unbelievers, like the demons in the 5th trumpet were only allowed to torment unbelievers not kill them. As Jesus has given all believers the authority over these demons and they will not be able to injure us as scorpions in the 5th trumpet, nor serpents in the 6th trumpet.     

*"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+

 

God is testing the unbelievers who worship other gods or do not believe in Him. For all those tested by the demons still will not repent or come to God, were all unbelievers. This will include the nations with religions which worship other false Gods, nations with no god, who will not accept or want to be controlled by the beast(man). They will have their power taken from them by God in this attack, crippling these nations’ armies ability to function and not pose any threat to the beast(man), so he can rule over them.

*The rest of mankind , who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts. Rev 9:20-21 NASB+

 

The army the beast(man) will have on earth will be headquarter in Israel, for the beast(man) will be Jewish. The beast(man) army will kill any who oppose him, both believers and unbelievers.

 

God will test believers to see whether they are willing to die for Jesus, like Jesus told us it would happen to some believers in the assembly/church at Smyrna.   

*Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. Rev 2:10 NKJV+

 

 

God will test unbelievers to see whether they are willing to die for Jesus, like Jesus told us it would happen to some believers in the assembly/church of Thyatira.   

*And I gave her time to repent of her sexual immorality, and she did not repent. Indeed I will cast her into a sickbed, and those who commit adultery with her into great tribulation, unless they repent of their deeds. Rev 2:21-22 NKJV+

 

After this battle will kill 1/3 of the people who will be living on the earth, it will give the beast(man) full control over the world; except for Israel during the 3½ years the 2 prophets/witnesses will bring Israel back to God, and the Petra area where God will protect some Jewish/Israel believers, others living there, through the 3½ year reign of the beast/antichrist/man of sin.  

 

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

 

God will give the 2 prophets/witnesses their full years give them the power to call down plagues on all who interfere with them, and will not let the beast/antichrist/man of sin rule over the world until the 2 prophets/witnesses time is completed F 40. Jesus will keep the beast(man) from being killed until it is the right time for him to be revealed, for He has the keys of death, which will restrain the demonic spirit in the Abyss from coming to earth and possessing the beast(man) physical human body and mind.

* 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 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+

*And you know what restrains him now, so that in his time he will be revealed. For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way. 2Thess 2:6-7 NASB+

I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death. Rev 1:18 NKJV+

 

There will be 7 evil kings/kingdoms who will reign over the earth; 5 evil kings/kingdoms have already reigned over the earth, the 6th evil king/kingdom (one is), refers to the Roman Empire whose Emperor was (Domitian) was ruling over the world at the time Revelation was written (around 90-96 AD). The 7th evil king/kingdom (has not yet come), will be the beast(man) who will rule over the earth (must remain a little while) for a little while.

*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. Rev 17:10 NASB+

 

The 7th and 8th evil king:

*"The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction. 17:11 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+

 

The beast(man) body and mind will be killed (beast which was and is not) his spiritual being (soul + spirit) going to Hades.

 

The beast(man) dead physical body and mind be brought to life again when his soul and spirit is possessed by the spiritual being of the demon, who will come up from the Abyss and then becomes the beast/antichrist/man of sin and will become the 8th evil king who will rule over the world.

 

The demonic beast/antichrist/man of sin will still be the same physical man as the beast(man) (is himself also an eighth).

 

Though the beast/antichrist/man of sin physical body and mind will be the same one as he was as when he was one of the 7 evil kings who will rule over the world (is one of the seven). 

 

The beast(man) you saw (beast that you saw was) and was killed (is not) will be possessed by a demon from the Abyss (is about to come up out of the abyss) and he will be thrown into the Lake of Fire (go to his destruction) after his 3½ reign is over.

 

When the 2 prophets/witnesses time is about to be finished the beast(man) will be physically killed by a sword blow to his head; his spiritual being (soul + spirit) will go to Hades.

*and by the signs that it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast it deceives those who dwell on earth, telling them to make an image for the beast that was wounded by the sword and yet lived. Rev 13:14 ESV+

*He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. Rev 13:12 NASB+

 

A demonic spirit which will come up from the Abyss to spiritual possess the beast(man) soul and spirit giving life to his physical body and mind as he becomes the beast/antichrist/man of sin.  

*"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+

 

Jesus was given 3½ years to tell us about His Father’s plan of salvation, how He would give His life to save all who would believe in Him as their Savior. The 2 prophets/witnesses will be given 3½ years to bring Israel back to God through Jesus at the Temple in Jerusalem. Then satan will be given 3½ years through the beast/antichrist/man of sin to rule over the world, try to turn all away from following God and instead follow him, his demons.

 

satan probably approached God in His Court in the 1st heaven, much in the same manner satan did when God allowed him to tempt Job. satan wanted equal time on earth to prove people do not really love God; the same time as Jesus had and the 2 prophets/witnesses will have, on earth to show people how much God loves us. satan, or the demon who will possess the beast(man) with satan as his arbitrator; would then petition God’s Court to give the demon to possess the beast(man) and rule over the world, was rejected by the court.

*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 and the demon who will possess the beast(man) have known for a long time (since Daniel wrote this in 530BC) they would be given complete control over the physical world for 3½ years; yet not the exact time it will happen. satan, the demon that will become the beast/antichrist/man of sin also know that they will be thrown into the Lake of Fire; will do anything to keep this event from happening, will try to keep Jews/Israel from returning to their homeland, building God’s Temple there and coming back to Jesus.

 

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

 

God through His Court in the 1st Heaven will make the beast/antichrist/man of sin king over the world for 3½ years; when the 2 prophets/witnesses 3½ years are over. God alone changes times and seasons, removes and raises up kings; gives to believers the wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to accept His ways, His plan of salvation for us. Our reward to be His children, live with Him forever in a glorified body in His New Heaven and Earth, far outweigh any tribulation we will face on earth.

*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+

*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+

 

3½ years = 42 months = 1260 days; time 1yr + times 2yrs + ½ time = 3 ½ years

 

God will give the beast/antichrist/man of sin complete authority over the entire physical world. Then the beast/antichrist/man of sin will complete his war to conquer the world, defeating the other countries which have been decimated by the demons. The people will start following the beast/antichrist/man of sin as their king, countries who will try to appease him so they will not be destroyed.

*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+

*He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. Rev 13:6-7 NIV+

 

The beast/antichrist/man of sin will bring his army against Israel, overpower them and come into God’s Temple in Jerusalem; and claim to be god. Jesus warns all believers in Judea to flee to the mountains, to go to Petra (see 49a below) where God will protect them; when they see the beast/antichrist/man of sin (abomination of desolation) standing in the Holy Place (in Old Covenant it was the holiest part of God’s 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+

 

God will allow the beast/antichrist/man of sin to physically rule over the world, rule over the physical lives of both believers and unbelievers to test them; but God will always control His holy spiritual world through the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will never be taken out of the world, will always live in the hearts of believers, will guide and keep them children of God; will never stop trying to bring unbelievers to Christ until this world ends.

*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+

 

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

 

God will delude all the people who have heard about Jesus, but have never accepted Him into believing a lie, that the beast/antichrist/man of sin is god. They will worship the beast/antichrist/man of sin as god, take his mark, and do what he commands them to do through the false prophet(beast).

 

All who have heard about Jesus, some who 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 given a delusion 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, friends who we worship with; who have not put Jesus first in their lives. They will help the beast/antichrist/man of sin to find and 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+

 

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 hate anyone who loves Jesus, help the beast/antichrist/man of sin to find and kill us. Even the people we love most, the members of our own family, our spouse, our children, our close friends, those we worship with in our congregations, churches, Bible classes, and homes. 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

 

There will be many who will be deceived into following the beast/antichrist/man of sin, taking his mark.

 

Some will fall away from the truth as the time for the beast/antichrist/man of sin to come into the world becomes closer and closer.

*Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. 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 24:23-24 ESV+

 

satan will try to mimic God, try to make the physical death of the beast(man), 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?"

*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+

 

All others who do not believe in our one true God, believe in other gods, or no gods; are all lumped together in this simple statement. Everyone whose name was not written in the book of life before the foundation of the world will worship the beast/antichrist/man of sin.

*and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain. Rev 13:8 ESV+

 

49a. God saves fleeing Jew/Israel believers of Judea in Petra; from beast/antichrist/man of sin, satan’s attack. See F 44

 

Jesus promised to protect some Jews/Israel believers from the 3½ reign of the beast/antichrist/man of sin. He never asked His Father to take them out of the world; but that His Father 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+

 

Our Heavenly Father has prepared a place in Petra which is in present day Jordan (Edom, Moab, Ammon) for the Jews/Israel believers to safely stay in during the 3½ year (1260 days) reign of the beast/antichrist/man of sin. 

*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+

 

Explain different crowns worn in Revelation, worn in verses below. Crown; Strong’s Greek stephanos 4735 or diadema 1238 (used in NASB+, ESV+)

 

1. Golden Wreath Crowns of Life (Greek stephanos) only worn by 24 angels who are elders and make up the jury in God’s Court to show their authority, and then Jesus; after He died for sin, was resurrected, given a glorified body and ascended into the 2nd Heaven in His glorified spiritual body to become our Advocate in God’s court.

*Around the throne were twenty-four thrones; and upon the thrones I saw twenty-four elders sitting, clothed in white garments, and golden crowns on their heads. Rev 4:4 NASB+

*Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand. Rev 14:14 ESV+

 

2. Believers given Non-Golden Wreath Crown of Life (Greek stephanos); showing we defeated satan/world by the atoning grace of Jesus. These non-golden weaved crowns also worn by the woman who represents the 12 tribes of Israel who will accept Jesus in Rev 12:1; and also referred to in 1Co 9:25, 1Thess 2:19, 2Ti 2:5, 4:8; and Ja 1:12.

*Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation ten days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. Rev 2:10 NKJV+

 

3. World rulers wear Gold Diadems, Gold Metal Crowns: (Greek diadema in NASB+, ESV+). In Revelation satan will give his gold metal crowns (diadems) showing he is the king over many nations to the beast/antichrist/man of sin. Then Jesus will wear these gold metal crowns (diadems) after the beast/antichrist/man of sin 3½ years reign is over at the 7th trumpet; and Jesus becomes the King over the world, comes in power to defeat satan, beast/antichrist/man of sin, false prophet them as the King over all nations.

*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. Rev 13:1 NASB+

*Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!" Rev 11:15 NKJV+

*His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. Rev 19:12 NASB+

 

The woman symbolizes the 12 tribes of Israel the nation Jesus was born from and is now sitting at the right hand of God; as she had a (Non-Golden Wreath) Crown of Life of 12 stars, which refer to the 12 tribes of Israel. After satan (dragon) is thrown down to earth he will pursue the believers in Israel to destroy them.

*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; and she was with child; and she cried out, being in labor and in pain to give birth. Rev 12:1-2 NASB+

*And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. Rev 12:13 ESV+

 

Dragon and serpent refer to satan

*And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world ; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. Rev 12:9 NASB+

 

God will help these believers travel quickly to Petra F. 44 by giving them wings of an eagle, (helped these believers travel very fast) and protect them there through the 3½ year reign of the beast/antichrist/man of sin. In Petra there is a large sandy desert that will swallow up the flood satan will cause to try and kill these believers. As well as a valley with high cliffs and a small entry so no one can come after them.

time 1 year + times 2 years + ½ time = 3 ½ years

* But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. Rev 12:

*So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. Rev 12:15-16 NKJV+

 

“Eagle’s wings” like God helped Israel travel fast through the desert to get their freedom from the Pharaoh of Egypt whose army was pursuing them  

*'You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles' wings, and brought you to Myself. Ex 19:4 NASB+

 

Then satan was enraged because he could not destroy these Jews/Israel believers, and went off to make war with those who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus. We must not forget satan will still have authority and power, after he gives his throne to the beast/antichrist/man of sin and while he is ruling over the earth.

*And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. Rev 12:17 NKJV+

 

50. 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 years to bring Israel back to God at His new Temple in Jerusalem is over. Their ability to protect themselves, those in Israel (Judea) and Jerusalem are over (see F 40) and the beast/antichrist/man of sin will 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 the entire 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+

 

51. 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 (soul and spirit) will went to the 2nd Heaven when they physically died 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 spiritual bodies, just as Jesus ascended into Heaven 40 days after He was resurrected and given a glorified body. 

*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+

 

Jewish law demands there must have 2 witnesses to confirm a story, God uses 2 witnesses to establish His plan of salvation for us.

*But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. Matt 18:16 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, giving them glorified spiritual bodies like His. Then take them in to the 2nd Heaven to be with Him forever.

 

52. 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 Enoch and Elijah, are killed when the antichrist/man of sin/beast comes into power; the 144,000 Jewish servants 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+

 

53. In glorified spiritual bodies; Enoch/Elijah after dying, then 144,000 servants without dying come here (to the 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+

 

54. During beast/antichrist/man of sin reign, more tribulation, killing than the world has or will ever see. Anyone who would not worship him as god are killed, do not take his mark will starve to death, for 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(beast), the 2nd beast. The false prophet(beast) 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(beast)  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(beast)  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

 

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+

 

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; the reign of the 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+
