Enter Antichrist

Revelation 13:1-10

The Antichrist comes on the scene today in Revelation 13:1-10. He is depicted as "a beast rising out of the sea, with ten horns and seven heads, with ten diadems on its horns and blasphemous name on its heads" (vs. 1). We see that Satan gives his power, his throne and authority to this beast (Antichrist) and the people marveled at the beast and they worshiped the dragon (Satan) and the beast (Antichrist) saying "Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?" (vs.2-4).

What's being described and taking place in these verses is sickening and it makes me sad. Did you notice the willingness, almost an eagerness, by the people to follow anything other than God? It really gives us a good glimpse of our rebellious, self-centered human natures and how deep down we all want to do what is right in our own eyes.

So as followers of Christ our goal and desire should be to become more like Christ. But here's the thing, we still live in the flesh and our human natures are intact. We still sin, we wander and sometimes we even turn our backs on God. So what can we do to stay focused on God and living a life that's pleasing to Him? What do we to combat being pulled away and influenced by the thinking and actions of the world? Tami W.

Daily reading of scripture combined with prayer is important to me, and where this blog has been very helpful, being able to not only frequently go to God's word, but also get interpretations and words of encouragement from other people studying the same verses.

I think it is important for us to realize where we came from, why we are here, and where we are going. And remember that Satan is the father of all lies, a deceiver, an accuser of the brethern. Thanks for letting me post! I like this site too and am glad it is here. As Gene mentioned it is absolutely pertinent that we stay in the Word of GOD---daily! Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Which GOD said in Jeremiah 17:9-10 “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? But I, the Lord, search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.”
Love ya all! Have a blessed day.

With satans time running out there is definetely an increase of evil in the world. God loves his people and wants us to stay true to his word and direction for these times. I have heard that the forty-two months written about will be shortened to a five month period which is supposedly May through September.Mathew 24:20 "Pray that your flight does not take place in winter or on the sabbath". If this is true I have to believe that he again is trying to spear us from the ultimate end of disaster. The first time 1/3rd of the people followed this time the numbers could be staggering if the time frame is indeed forty-two months.
We know in our hearts if something is wrong even if it is disguised into something appealing. I believe that God lives in our hearts and that first voice that we hear is his. He does not want any of his people to perish, but it is up to us and our free will to be cognizant of the signs that are all around us.Pray, pray, pray put on the armour of God everyday.

Dear brothers and sisters in the faith. Would you please join me in prayer. Her name is Lilly. She was born premature: 3 lbs. and some ounces. The hospital took her off oxygen couple days ago and little Lilly is breathing on her own, but very labously. "I pray that You Lord GOD do bless little Lilly with healing and good health! And rest on the problems you made: Where ever 2 or more are gathered in Your name, their You are in the midst and with You all things are possible. All things are possible to those who believe. Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. Amen, and thank you! I know this has nothing to do with the lesson, but it does have to do with our GOD and little Lilly needs Him and us! Thanks!

The Holy Spirit, living and active within us, works to keep us from sin and following Christ as closely as possible when we allow Him to dwell within us and heed His promptings, which come from the Word.

Thanks for sharing about little Lilly. I prayed for her. Tami W.

For me I really need to be in the scripture which I have a hard time with. Pray life is improving alot. I also need encouragement and fellowship with other believer's and I also need to be challenged. Sharing my faith is becoming a lifestyle. I believe as believer's we need each other and I don't see that much here in Lincoln. Please pray for me.

Lilly and her family are in my prayers.

I have to keep on seeking the when he can be found. By prayer and the word of God.
Lilly, Jesus christ is with you.amen.
