What do you remember about the 1 st beast

What do you remember about the 1st beast?


Satan s two allies revelation 13

SATAN’S TWO ALLIESRevelation 13

  • The First Beast—

    7 heads (kings & hills)

    Like Daniel’s 4th beast

    Rules over the earth

    Persecutes Christians

    All worship him


Satan s two allies revelation 131

SATAN’S TWO ALLIESRevelation 13

  • So the first beast is

  • The Roman Empire

  • whom Satan brings up to help him destroy the church

  • A very powerful ally

  • Now Satan brings up another ally—another beast


What do you remember about the 2 nd beast

What do you remember about the 2nd beast?


Satan s two allies revelation 132

SATAN’S TWO ALLIESRevelation 13

  • Satan’s second beast has two horns like a lamb

  • He has one purpose:

  • To make people worship the first beast, mainly its heads

  • Thus this is the Cult of Emperor Worship


Satan s two allies revelation 133

SATAN’S TWO ALLIESRevelation 13

  • So Satan thinks he will win—

  • If Christians refuse to worship the Emperor they will be killed.

  • If they do worship the Emperor, they will have abandoned their faith.


Satan s two allies revelation 134

SATAN’S TWO ALLIESRevelation 13

  • Either way, Satan wins.

  • Christ is urging a third way. For Christians to be faithful to Christ even if it means their deaths. Thus people will be drawn to a religion that means enough to die for


Satan s two allies revelation 135

SATAN’S TWO ALLIESRevelation 13

  • The Roman persecution on the church lasted from about 90 AD to about 300 AD. The symbolic 1260 days

  • Millions of Christians killed.

  • Their faithfulness defeated Satan’s fourth attack.

Announcement of the fall1

ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE FALL
