9.0.16f The Third of Four Enemies to The Lord’s churches and His People that The Book of Revelation Reveals is: The FALSE PROPHET.

The Third of Four Enemies

The Book of Revelation Reveals is:

The False Prophet,

also called the Beast from the Earth

( shown in Revelation 13:11-18,

16:12-16, 19:20, 20:10).

Revelation 13:11-18;

“The False Prophet.”

The Beast Out of the Earth.

11 And I beheld another Beast

( The Second Beast;

The FALSE PROPHET )

coming up out of the earth;

and he had two horns like a lamb,

and he spake as a Dragon.

12 And he exercises

all the power

of the First Beast before him,

( The First Beast;

The Beast Out of The Sea, see:

9.0.16e.i The Second of Four Enemies

The Book of Revelation Reveals is:

THE BEAST.

“All the World

wondered after the Beast”;

YOU ? )

and causes the earth

and them which dwell therein

to worship the First Beast,

whose deadly wound was healed.

13And he does great wonders,

( The Second Beast;

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET )

so that he makes fire

come down from heaven on the earth

in the sight of men,

14And deceived them

that dwell on the earth

by the means of those miracles

which he had power to do

in the sight of the Beast;

saying

to them that dwell on the earth,

that they should

make an image to the Beast,

which had the wound by a sword,

and did live.

15And he

( The Second Beast;

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET )

had power to give life

unto the image of the Beast,

( The First Beast

Out of The Sea )

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.”

The Mark of the Beast

16And he causes all,

both small and great,

rich and poor, free and bond,

to receive a Mark

in their right hand,

or in their foreheads:

17And 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.

18Here is Wisdom.

Let him that has Understanding

count the number of the Beast:

for it is the number of a man;

and his number is

Six hundred threescore and six.”

Revelation 16:12-16;

12And the Sixth Angel

poured out his Vial

upon the great river Euphrates;

and the water thereof was dried up,

that the way

of the kings of the east

might be prepared.

13And I saw three unclean spirits

like frogs

come out of the mouth

of the Dragon,

and

out of the mouth

of the Beast,

and

out of the mouth of

The False Prophet.

14For they are the spirits of Devils,

working miracles,

which go forth

unto the kings of the earth

and of the whole world,

to gather them to the battle

of that Great Day of God Almighty.

15Behold, I Come as a Thief.

Blessed is he that Watches,

and Keeps his Garments,

lest he walk naked,

and they see his shame.

16 And He Gathered them together

into a place

called in the Hebrew tongue

Armageddon.”

Revelation 19:20;

20And the Beast was Taken,

and with him

The False Prophet

that wrought miracles before him,

with which he deceived them

that had received

The Mark of the Beast,

and

them that worshiped his image.

These both were Cast Alive

into a Lake of Fire

Burning with Brimstone.”

Revelation 20:10;

10And the Devil that deceived them

was Cast into

The Lake of Fire and Brimstone,

where the Beast

and the False Prophet are,

and

Will be Tormented Day and Night

Forever and Ever.”

A careful reading of the relevant texts

shows that this Beast

( The Second Beast;

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET )

symbolizes,

not simply false religion,

but false religion

willingly pressed into the service

of the self-deifying State.

The Second Beast;

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET

symbolizes false religion

willingly pressed into the service

of the self-deifying State

AND IS:

Energized by Satan

Revelation 13:11;

11And I beheld another Beast”

( The Second Beast;

The FALSE PROPHET )

“coming up out of the earth;

and he had two horns like a lamb,

and he spake as

a Dragon,”

because:

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET

is Energized by Satan

 and

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET

is authorized by the State itself

as we see in Revelation 13:12; 

12And he 

( The Second Beast;

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET )

exercises all the power

of the First Beast before him,”

( The First Beast;

The Beast Out of The Sea:

9.0.16e.i The Second of Four Enemies

The Book of Revelation Reveals is:

THE BEAST.

“All the World

wondered after the Beast”;

YOU ? )

“and causes the earth

and them which dwell therein

to worship the First Beast,

whose deadly wound was healed.”

Those INDIVIDUAL

FALSE RELIGIOUS

people who function

as The False Prophet

use coercion

  where again we read,

in Revelation 13:12;

12 And he

( The Second Beast;

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET )

exercises all the power

of the First Beast before him,

( The First Beast;

The Beast Out of The Sea )

and causes the earth

and them which dwell therein

to worship the First Beast,

whose deadly wound was healed,”

as well as,

where we read of

FALSE RELIGIOUS

INDIVIDUALS,

who function

as The False Prophet

use coercion

in Revelation 13:16-17; 

16And he causes all,

both small and great,

rich and poor, free and bond,

to receive a Mark

in their right hand,

or in their foreheads:

17And 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.”

The 

FALSE RELIGIOUS

INDIVIDUALS,

who function

as The False Prophet,

also use religious deception

to set up “an image” to the Beast,

  Shown in Revelation 13:14-15; 

14And deceived them

that dwell on the earth

by the means of those miracles

which he had power to do

in the sight of the Beast;

saying

to them that dwell on the earth,

that they should

make an image to the Beast,

which had the wound by a sword,

and did live.

15And he

( The Second Beast;

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET )

had power to give life

unto the image of the Beast,

( The First Beast

Out of The Sea )

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.”

That is, 

FALSE RELIGIOUS

INDIVIDUALS,

who function

as The False Prophet,

seek to organize,

implement, and encourage

the worship of the State

and/or the person

in whom the State is embodied

at any given moment in history.

The False Prophet is present

throughout

the entire Age of Jesus’ churches

and this Current

Era of The Proclamation

of The Gospel,

from the Time Jesus

Ascended Back into Heaven,

Until Jesus Comes to Earth Again.

In John’s day he was embodied in

“ . . . the emperor cult

and the Commune of Asia,

a council of distinguished representatives

promoting loyalty to the emperor”

( from THE REFORMATION STUDY BIBLE ).

In our own day,

The False Prophet

rears his head

 wherever

The FALSE RELIGIOUS

INDIVIDUALS,

who function

as The False Prophet,

act as government propagandists

to encourage the adulation of the King,

the Fuehrer, the Chairman,

the Ayatollah, or the President.

Notably, Revelation 13:13-15

implies that in some instances Satan

will actually empower the False Prophet(s)

to deceive men with miraculous signs.

Revelation 13:13-15;

13And he does great wonders,

( The Second Beast;

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET )

so that he makes fire

come down from heaven on the earth

in the sight of men,

14And deceived them

that dwell on the earth

by the means of those miracles

which he had power to do

in the sight of the Beast;

saying

to them that dwell on the earth,

that they should

make an image to the Beast,

which had the wound by a sword,

and did live.

15And he

( The Second Beast;

The Beast Out of The Earth,

The FALSE PROPHET )

had power to give life

unto the image of the Beast,

( The First Beast

Out of The Sea )

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.”

Most assuredly,

this will be the case at

The End of the Age.

The Gospels and epistles

warn us that when the (final) Antichrist

arises to deceive the whole world,

he will perform

“false signs and wonders”

 2 Thessalonians 2:1-2, 9-12;

The Man of Sin

1Now we beg you, brethren,

by The Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,

and

by our Gathering Together unto him,

2 That you be not soon shaken in mind,

or be troubled,

neither by spirit, nor by word,

nor by letter as from us,

as that The Day of Christ

is at Hand…

 9 “…Even him, whose coming

is after the working of Satan

with all power and signs

and lying wonders,

10 And with

all deceivable-ness of unrighteousness

in them that perish;

because they received

not the Love of the Truth,

that they might be Saved.

11And for this cause

God Will Send them Strong Delusion,

that they should believe a lie:

12That they all might be Damned

who Believed not the Truth,

but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

 

Not surprisingly,

we receive the same warning

in The Book of Revelation:

John sees three unclean spirits

coming out of the mouth of the Dragon,

the Beast, and the False Prophet.

They are demonic spirits,

performing signs

and

going abroad to the kings

of the whole world,

in order to assemble them

for the battle of

the Great Day of God the Almighty

Revelation 16:12-16;

12And the Sixth Angel

poured out his Vial

upon the great river Euphrates;

and the water thereof was dried up,

that the way

of the kings of the east

might be prepared.

13And I saw three unclean spirits

like frogs

come out of the mouth

of the Dragon,

and

out of the mouth

of the Beast,

and

out of the mouth of

The False Prophet.

14For they are the spirits of Devils,

working miracles,

which go forth

unto the kings of the earth

and of the whole world,

to gather them to the battle

of that Great Day of God Almighty.

15Behold, I Come as a Thief.

( THE LORD JESUS CHRIST )

Blessed is he that Watches,

and Keeps his Garments,

lest he walk naked,

and they see his shame.

16 And He Gathered them together

into a place

called in the Hebrew tongue

Armageddon.”

As I will argue later,

Revelation 20:7-10,

predicts this very thing one final time,

in remarkably similar language,

when we see:

Satan Cast into the Lake of Fire

Revelation 20:7-10;

7 And when the thousand years are expired,

( The symbolic “thousand years”

is the seemingly “endless”,

but Finite Period of Time,

UNTIL JESUS COMES AGAIN,

in which we are Now Living,

as Jesus Rules and Reigns

FROM HEAVEN,

Over His Kingdom on Earth )

Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

8 And shall go out to deceive the nations

which are in the four quarters of the earth,

Gog and Magog,

to gather them together to battle:

the number of whom

is as the sand of the sea.

9And they went up

on the breadth of the earth,

and

compassed the camp of the Saints about,

and the Beloved City:

and Fire Came Down

from God Out of Heaven,

and Devoured them.

10And the devil that deceived them

Was Cast into

The Lake of Fire and Brimstone,

where the Beast

and the False Prophet are,

and Will Be Tormented

Day and Night Forever and Ever.”

Clearly, the High Prophet of Heaven,

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST,

ALMIGHTY,

very much desires His Churches

to be Fully Prepared

for the Last (Embodiment of the) Beast,

the last False Prophet,

and the Last Battle.
