Who is the Beast, the Dragon, and the False Prophet? (Part 1)

Posted by Elfriede

Who is the Beast?

We already mentioned the beast in last week’s post when we discussed the question “Who is the Antichrist”.  Is there more to the beast then mentioned last week?

The word “beast/beasts” appears in the Bible over 300 times; the majority of which is mentioned in the Old Testament (KJV).

Hold Fast – to the End

“hold fast till I come… keepeth my works unto the end”

by Randy Amos

We live in a changing world – and church.  Truth once held is being let go in the name of liberty.  And in our technological explosion things are changing almost monthly.  We let go of what was the “newest and greatest” to further upgrade to something more exciting.

Is it easy to hold something fast for a long period of time?  Try holding a 3-pound book in your hand while standing.  For a few minutes it’s easy.  But could you do it for even a week?  Tiredness, hunger, inconvenience, time demands, peer pressure to move on, and even boredom would make it a monumental task.

There are things the Lord asks His children to hold fast (not let go of) until He comes.  But that can be hard because of relativism, results, reputation, relationships, and regression (small at times).  If 20 people were standing side-by-side in a straight line and eventually 19 stepped back, the one who didn’t move now looks strange and out of unity with the others.  Yet we are exhorted to be “steadfast, unmovable,” 1Cor. 15:58.

SEARCHING THE PROPHECIES IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL AND WHAT ABOUT THE ANTICHRIST?

Posted by Elfriede Copple

According to Warren Henderson, in his book: INFIDELITY and LOYALTY – A Devotional Study of Ezekiel and Daniel, the last 6 chapters of Daniel “pertain to future world empires, the Tribulation Period and the Kingdom Age and provide telescoping detail of particular events within future kingdoms“. (pg. 306 para. 4)

What was Mike’s motivation to put this Study Guide together?

The inspiration for this book came from three important sources.

First, the Book, The Revelation of Jesus Christ, tells us in chapter 1, verse 3: “Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.
