Putting God's Word into Practice…

Revelation 13 ~ Unholy Trinity

on July 31, 2014

In the end, the Dragon, the Beast and the False Prophet will come on  the scene and deceive the world with their temporary power and counterfeit authority.  The “world” will be easily swayed by them and lured in to marvel and worship this false representation of the truly, divine Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).

We are made to worship!  We can worship the One who is holy, slow to anger, abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness; who sent His only Son to earth to live a selfless, humble life of serving all the way until He sacrificed His own life for the sins of mankind; who by the power of the Holy Spirit was raised back to life, ascended to heaven and now sends His own Spirit to dwell with and in His followers.  Or we can worship things that are blasphemous, haughty, and deceitful.

Why is it that most people love being under the authority of “false prophets,” but hate to submit to God’s authority?  Why is it that people will find themselves worshiping a dragon and beast and spitting on the Lamb?

These are going to be polarizing times.  It is only going to get harder to be a Christ-follower–captivity, martyrdom, starvation, nakedness, homelessness, etc…IS CHRIST ENOUGH?  WOULD MY FAITH BE STRONG ENOUGH TO ENDURE?

And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his hame and his dwelling, that is, those who dwell in Heaven.  Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation, 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. (5-8)
