The Beast Revelation 13 By Evangelist Charles A. Childers

Been reading the bible lately? if you have, you will know what is about to happen in the world including the United States of America,Have you ever thought about the change that is about to take place right here in the USA? if you have been reading the word of God, you already know. if not all you need to do is to listen to preachers, you don't know, because the preachers in America are not going to tell you the truth.

The nations of the world are ready to receive the antichrist (BEAST SYSTEM) including America. There is not a one scripture anywhere in the bible that gives any evidence whatsoever the rapture will take place before the mark of the beast. Neither is there any scripture that lets know America is exempt from such.the bible says, "All the world wondered after the beast." Revelation 13:3 Then in verse 7 we read, "And power was given to Him over all kindred's, and tingues, and nations." The U.S. is in NATO, the UN, and the WTO; it will be involved in the system also. The bible does not lie.

Praise the Lord! God's word will not fail the true child of God. Although many are the trials of life; many are the victories in the Holy Ghost.While the Apostle John was in the spirit (not raptured) on the Lord's day, he saw many visions and revelations from heaven. All through the new testament scriptures, it tells about the change that was to take place in the church -- FALLING AWAY-- DEPARTING FROM THE FAITH -- GIVING HEED TO SEDUCING SPIRITS. I have been saved and in the ministry long enough to see this happen.

The Apostle John, in his vision on the isle of Patmos, says in Revelation 13:1 "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up from out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns. And upon His heads the name of BLASPHEMY," Ahat a sight to behold. Many scholars have tried to name this beast, the have come up with all kinds of ideas of where...who...what it is. But I really do not see why all this should be. The main thing is what is the result and the impact it has on humanity, especially the church.In Revelation 13:4 it says, "AND THEY WORSHIPPED the dragon (devil) which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast saying --WHO IS LIKE UNTO THE BEAST? Who is able to make war with him?" They are not worship God, but have turned their affection to satan and his form of government and religion. They are accepting the beast (system) as their God.

Power is given to him to contnue for forty and two months. Verse 5. It is very important that you read these scripture for your self. I want to know I am telling you the truth. forty two months is 3 1/2 years. Enough time to sway the whole world (and he does just that).

We go back to the latter part of verse 2 " And the dragon gave him his POWER, AND HIS SEAT. AND GREAT AUTHORITY." (Power to deceive and rule people; Seat - Position of rulership in government and religion; Great Authority - Liberty to exercise the power as he sees fit). Whether you and I like it or not, the storm is about to hit. We must be ready at all times. "AND ALL THE WORLD wondered after the beast" Verse 3.

During the 31/2 years, he is in complete control of the whole world. He "opens his mouth in blasphemy AGAINST GOD, TO BLASPHEME His name, His tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven." revelation13:6. According to this, he turns against anything that has God in it, including the church.

Remember that verse 4 says they worshipped the dragon and the beast.This includes sinners and all preachers, prophets, teachers who do not tell the people the truth concerning the end time. The church (BORN AGAIN) saints are going to have to prepare for what is coming. there will, in the near future, be a price to pay. Brother Childers, what do you mean by that? I mean in the future Revelation 13:7 will be fulfilled. "And it was given unto (Beast and the System) him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: (Saints) and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations." Let it be known o reader, there is no rapture before the fulfillment of this verse. Don't try to fool yourself, neither let any teacher or preacher fool you.

Preachers and teachers go to great lenghts telling us what a great mystery this is -- how hard it is to understand. Let us see how hard it is to understand verse 8 "And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (worship who? The beast) WHOSE NAMES ARE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK LIFE OF THE LAMB slain from the foundation of the world." Here is the question IS MY NAME WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE? if not, somehow we will be deceived into believing a lie and be damned. 11 Thessalonians 2:11-12.

Jesus is coming, "...after the workings os satan with all the power and signs and lying wonders, and with all decievableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved." 11 Thessalonians 2:9-10. The deception is because truth was not received and preached by
most preachers, but truth was rejected. Once we become reprobates by refusing the truth, we are on dangerous ground (spiritually). May God help us.

It is not hard to figure out why John (wondered with great admiration) after he saw the beast and the great whore "with whom all the kings (rulers) of the earth have committed fornication and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication." Revelation 17:2

Not only kings and rulers, but presidents, vice presidents, congress, senators, pastors, evangelists and all others with the wine of her fornication. AMERICA? WHERE ART THOU? Are we included? By all means. WAKE UP CHURCH.

" And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration." Revelation 17:6. What a scene this must have been, to make John wonder as he did. Look at this, if the whore is drunk on the blood of the saints and martyrs, how could the church have been raptured in revelation 4:1?

In revelation 13: John saw another beast -- "That had two two horns like a lamb. And he sake like a dragon". this makes the beast John has seen in Revelation 13. The first beast had been wounded. We really do not know what kind of wound it was, but in verse 12 that wound had been healed and he was ready to fulfill what God had for him in the last days. (which is as follows) "And deceive them that dwell on the earth by [the means of] those miracles which he HAD POWER TO DO IN THE SIGHT OF THE BEAST".

As I have said it is not so much of who he is, BUT WHAT HE DOES, which is no mystery to be solved. The people who do not worship him will be killed. Revelation 13:15. Again the very important question is: Are you a born again christian? Are you saved by the blood of Jesus and by the spirit of God? Please go back and read revelation 13:8. It is very important for us to know we have been born again.

"And he (the beast system and his government) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:" Revelation 13:16. it looks like this includes every one, even the rich cannot buy their way out of this....including the prosperity preachers.

Man letting money to become his god. They say, Jesus Christ is first in their life, but action speaks louder than words. Verse 17 says, "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". the rich will be in the same class as of the poor when this takes place. it is not very
far off. Oh yes, they will tell you to go ahead, take the mark, this is not really it. Besides, we are still looking for the rapture to take place. Multitudes will be deceived in the near future. Don't let the devil make you one of them.

According to Revelation 20:3 the nations are deceived before the one thousand year reign of Christ. then in verse 7 and 8 "And when the thousand years are expired the devil is released to deceive the nations again." READ IT. I cannot close without telling you the result of taking the mark of the beast. Get your bible and go to Revelation
14:9-10 which reads as follows: "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the WRATH OF GOD, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with FIRE AND BRIMSTONE in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb." I do not know about you (reader) but I do not intend to be one of these. May God's mercy be with us all.

In 1 Corinthians 15:52 the bible says "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last TRUMP: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." When? at the last TRUMP. if there is a last, there must be a first at sometime or some place. if a pre-tribulation person has heard or knows anything about the first trump, please let me know.
