1. Hello, I’m John Cook.
2. Welcome to our continuing study on Just a Thought on the Book of Revelation.
3. Today we are on part 4 of Just a thought on Revelation 13.
Revelation 13:6 KJV 1900
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
“And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God”
Satan’s Enemy is Ever God!
Cannot conquer, so blasphemes!
Daniel 7:25 KJV 1900
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
His Desire “wear out the saints”
“to blaspheme his name”
Attacks the Almighty Name of God!
• Hates the Power of His Name!
• Power to save, overcome, keep!
“to blaspheme…his tabernacle”
Out to Defeat the Presence of God in His Own!
“to blaspheme…them that dwell in heaven”
Attacks what he cannot touch!
Hates our Salvation
Revelation 13:7 KJV 1900
And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints”
Who are the Saints? Israel!
Make the Holocaust as Nothing!
“and to overcome them”
Israel will be brought to near destruction. Jacob’s trouble!
Matthew 24:21–22 KJV 1900
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
God will shorten the days for the elect’s sake!
“and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations”
He Will Have World-Wide Power
Then will men get what they are crying for, world government!
But it won’t like they think!
