Revelations a Study.Section 10. Chapter 13:1 thru 13:18, The beast The beast as described in scripture isrepparttar anti-christ, or as God calls himrepparttar 144330 Assyrian. Many believe this is Satan butrepparttar 144331 Scriptures state otherwise. Lets take these next few verses and break them down. Rev 13:1 And “I”=John, stood uponrepparttar 144332 “sand”=the edge of humanity, ofrepparttar 144333 sea=man, and saw a “beast”=anti-christ, rise up out ofrepparttar 144334 “sea”= man, having “seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns.”seven heads = 7 Mountains, ten horns = Ten kings, seven crowns =7 Kings., and upon his headsrepparttar 144335 name of blasphemy. Anamils attributes are always used in scripture to describerepparttar 144336 attributes of God and a man.The key words that we are looking for in prophecy are, “was like”,“were as” & “as the”, these words should indicate to you automatically that an animal is only a medium to describe something else. Rev 13:2 Andrepparttar 144337 beast which I saw was like unto a “leopard”=who has great vision, and his feet were asrepparttar 144338 feet of a “bear”great power,, and his mouth asrepparttar 144339 mouth of a “lion”=power to devour: andrepparttar 144340 “dragon”=Satan, gave “him”= anti-christ, “his power, and his seat, and great authority”= Satans powers are given torepparttar 144341 anti-christ.[Ref; Dan_7:6, Dan_7:7; Hos_13:7; Hab_1:8 Psa_22:21; Isa_5:29; Hos_11:10; Amo_3:12; 2Ti_4:17; 1Pe_5:8] Rev 13:3 And I saw “one of his heads” = Mountain{Kingdom} Eze 30:24 And I will strengthenrepparttar 144342 arms ofrepparttar 144343 king of Babylon, and put my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh's arms, and he shall groan before him withrepparttar 144344 groanings of a deadly wounded man. as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and allrepparttar 144345 world wondered afterrepparttar 144346 beast., The beast will take by force 3 kingdoms andrepparttar 144347 other 4 will capitulate. [Ref; Rev_17:10, 2Th_2:9-12.] Rev 13:4 thru Rev 13:7 are best described by Daniel, this isrepparttar 144348 time of great confusion and deception. Please readrepparttar 144349 description by Daniel. Rev 13:4 And they worshippedrepparttar 144350 dragon which gave power untorepparttar 144351 beast: and they worshippedrepparttar 144352 beast, saying, Who is like untorepparttar 144353 beast? who is able to make war with him? Rev 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. Rev 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war withrepparttar 144354 saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. [Ref; Dan_7:21, Dan_7:25, Dan_8:24, Dan_8:25, Dan_11:36-39, Dan_12:1] We are going to get intorepparttar 144355 full meaning of Daniel concerning Revelations, in our next study. This verse is one that is used by many to show thatrepparttar 144356 Church will still be here duringrepparttar 144357 7 year Tribulation period. Rev 13:8 And all that dwell uponrepparttar 144358 earth shall worship him, whose names are not written inrepparttar 144359 book of life ofrepparttar 144360 Lamb slain fromrepparttar 144361 foundation ofrepparttar 144362 world. Rev 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. Rev 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth withrepparttar 144363 sword must be killed withrepparttar 144364 sword. Here isrepparttar 144365 patience andrepparttar 144366 faith ofrepparttar 144367 saints. [Ref; Isa_33:1, Isa_26:21] Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out ofrepparttar 144368 earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. [Dan_7:8, Dan_7:24, Dan_7:25; 2Th_2:4]

Written by Rev.Anthony Smith

Revelations, A Study. section 2. Here in Section 2. Chapters, 1:16 thru 3:22. we will look atrepparttar sevens of Revelations. Lets take notice of Jesus giveing a discription of Himself in each letter. Rev. 1:19, Is a comandment of Jesus to John to writerepparttar 144276 things hereafter. Rev 1:20 The mystery ofrepparttar 144277 seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, andrepparttar 144278 seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars arerepparttar 144279 angels [Ministers] ofrepparttar 144280 seven churches: andrepparttar 144281 seven candlesticks which thou sawest arerepparttar 144282 seven churches. The angels ofrepparttar 144283 seven churches, are literal, Ministers, or Pastors. These angels are literial, Dan 10:13 Butrepparttar 144284 prince ofrepparttar 144285 kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one ofrepparttar 144286 chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there withrepparttar 144287 kings of Persia. Dan 10:20 Then said he, Knowest thou wherefore I come unto thee? and now will I return to fight withrepparttar 144288 prince of Persia: and when I am gone forth, lo,repparttar 144289 prince of Grecia shall come. ”Michael isrepparttar 144290 Angel of Israel.” Starting in Rev 2:1 we will take a look atrepparttar 144291 Seven Churches. Remember that Revelations is both, physical and Spiritual. Here arerepparttar 144292 Physical Churches. Definition of “UNTO”, [Middle English : un-, up to; see until + to, to; see to.Unto /Un´to/, conj. Until; till. [Obs.] ] Notice thatrepparttar 144293 word unto, is mentioned in each letter torepparttar 144294 Seven Churches. These letters were written torepparttar 144295 Angel [Minister] of each church. Why? Becauserepparttar 144296 Pastor or Ministers of Churches have much to answer for and His direction must come fromrepparttar 144297 Spirit. [James 3:1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receiverepparttar 144298 greater condemnation.] [Mar 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, butrepparttar 144299 Holy Ghost.] "He that hath an ear, let him hear whatrepparttar 144300 Spirit saith untorepparttar 144301 churches” The Spirit of God isrepparttar 144302 one speaking to each Church and notrepparttar 144303 Angel. What is an Angel? 1. A MINISTER OR PASTOR OF A CHURCH, AS IN THE SEVEN ASIATIC CHURCHES. [ARCHAIC] 2. MESSENGER, A MESSENGER OF GOD. 3. A SPIRITUAL, CELESTIAL BEING, SUPERIOR TO MAN IN POWER AND INTELLIGENCE. IN THE SCRIPTURES THE ANGELS APPEAR AS GOD'S MESSENGERS. 4. Warier. 5.ATTENDANT 1.Ephesus. The city were worshippers ofrepparttar 144304 false god Diana, full of congeriours, witchcraft, Idolitors, ect. Now each church we see in these letters have some positive atributes ,we will concintrate onrepparttar 144305 bad. Rev 2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat, [To some extent or degree] against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. The Church was not true torepparttar 144306 teachings of Christ. “and will remove thy candlestick [ Minister] out of his place, except thou repent. " “out of his place” The Angel of Ephesus. When you removerepparttar 144307 minister out ofrepparttar 144308 church you loose Spiritual Guidance. 2.Smyrna. Smyrna ( The City) became a center forrepparttar 144309 cult of emperor worship. Only two churches, Smyrna and Philadelphia were true to Christ. Great persecution befellrepparttar 144310 Church and its angel was burned alive. Rev 2:9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I knowrepparttar 144311 blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but arerepparttar 144312 synagogue of Satan. “the synagogue of Satan” This is what Christ calledrepparttar 144313 Jews at this time. The Jews broke their own laws atrepparttar 144314 murder ofrepparttar 144315 Angel of Smyrna.The Church still exists. 3.Pergamos. Antipas was murdered byrepparttar 144316 AEsculapiu worshipers. “Satans seet”, The idol AEsculapius. Balaam - lord ofrepparttar 144317 people; foreigner or glutton,repparttar 144318 son of Beor.(Num. 31:8; comp. 16)(Deut. 23:4)(Num. 23:7).Nicolaitans, Professing Christians who, introduce a false freedom, licentiousness. They embrased Idol worship. 4.Thyatira. Jezebel, Daughter of Ethbaal, Preistest, 2Ki 9:7 And thou shalt smiterepparttar 144319 house of Ahab thy master, that I may avengerepparttar 144320 blood of my servantsrepparttar 144321 prophets, andrepparttar 144322 blood of allrepparttar 144323 servants ofrepparttar 144324 LORD, atrepparttar 144325 hand of Jezebel. 2Ki 9:22 ...the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many? “Bright and Morning Star”,
