Dr. John Cook / General

Just a Thought on Revelation 13 / Number of the Beast (666); Revelation; Prophecy; Antichrist / Revelation 13:11–18

Introduction:

  1. The image that must be worshipped.
  2. The mark that must be taken.
  3. The consequences to all that refuse.
  4. The consequences to all who accept.

Revelation 13:15 KJV 1900

And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast”

1.   Once more we see that God allows the devil to deceive:

God allows beast to give life to the graven image!

“that the image should both speak”

  1. What if this happened today?
    1. Men already worship the world.
    1. Want to be deceived God will allow you to be deceived.

“and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed”

1.   Devil will kill all that do not worship him!

a.  No opposition to capital punishment then:

i.    Example:

Daniel 3:6 KJV 1900

And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.

Daniel 3:15 KJV 1900

Now if ye be ready that at what time ye hear the sound of the cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, and dulcimer, and all kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the image which I have made; well: but if ye worship not, ye shall be cast the same hour into the midst of a burning fiery furnace; and who is that God that shall deliver you out of my hands?

Revelation 13:16 KJV 1900

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond”

a.  Federal offense not to take the mark!

i.    All are under his power.

“to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads”

a.  Not difficult to believe today, look at the mask!

1.   Counterfeits the Lord:

Revelation 7:4 KJV 1900

And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

Revelation 14:1 KJV 1900

And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.

Revelation 13:17 KJV 1900

And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

“And that no man might buy or sell”

Power to say Who and Who Cannot Purchase

a.  Today: Businesses can and cannot operate outside of the government control!

1.   Required then:

“save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”

a.  Mark required!

Revelation 13:18 KJV 1900

Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

“Here is wisdom”

a.  God is revealing the mark!

“Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast”

1.   The mark is a number!

“for it is the number of a man”

1.   A specific number of a specific man!

a.  The beast is a man!

“his number is Six hundred threescore and six”

1.   Satanic trinity: 6-6-6

a.  Given concerning Solomon:

2 Chronicles 9:13 KJV 1900

Now the weight of gold that came to Solomon in one year was six hundred and threescore and six talents of gold;

2.   INTERESTING TO NOTE: We live in a day when numbers mean more than names!

3.   If you are around in that day, do not take this mark.

a.  Take the mark and you are without hope:

Revelation 14:11 KJV 1900

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

Conclusion:

  1. The image that must be worshipped.
  2. The mark that must be taken.
  3. The consequences of all that refuse.
  4. The consequence to all who accept.
