These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
IN OUR CHAPTER TODAY WE ARE TOLD OF how the kings of the earth joined forces with the beast and the whore to accomplish the evil intentions of Continue reading BE OF ONE MIND
And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.

And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
HERE JOHN IS DESCRIBING FOR US THE RISE of the Anti-Christ.
He said he saw him rise from the sea. Which signifies his rise from the mass of people.
He is the embodiment of all past kingdoms!
He will be the combination of all past emperors.
He will possess the qualities of all past emperors.
He will be a true monster in every sense of the word. Little wonder he is called a beast!
Now notice that to this monstrous entity of a man, Satan, that is the dragon gives his power!
To this man, the Anti-Christ, Satan will give his seat! Wow!
And then Satan will give him great authority.
This man will be the most evil and dangerous person to ever live!
He will be a kind of Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Nebuchadnezzar, Pharaoh, Alexander the great, and several vile emperors put together in one!
He will be the most wicked, most vicious, the vilest, the most heartless and most evil person to ever walk this earth.
He will be evil personified!
And he will have all the authority and powers of Hell at his disposal!
His greatest pleasure will be the suffering and torment of humanity.
The only way to avoid this evil entity is to be in Christ.
By the time, he comes on the scene, the church would have been raptured or caught up to Heaven.
He will have free and unrestrained reign of terror on earth!
It will be literal Hell on earth!
Jesus is the only way out of this.
Please preach the gospel to people around you.
To the ends of the earth!
God bless you richly with great grace and many blessings!

And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
THE MIGHTY ANGEL THAT IS described in this chapter is the Lord Jesus Himself.

It means that John had prophecies in the past.
And this time he is being asked to prophesy again.

And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
