Slide 5 - The Rise of the False Prophet – Revelation 13:11-18
- Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those[e] who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or[f] the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
- 18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666
Slide 6 - The Beast from the Earth
- Here we see where the devil sends up another agent in beast form in opposition to the truth that was coming forth at this time by Luther and other Reformers, By taking on a beast like spirit it helped to bring about division among Christian people of the fifteenth century.
- Rev. 13:11 says, “And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. This beast was Christian like, because I it had two horns like a lamb, but on the other hand, it was that same old Pagan Dragon spirit of unbelief, because it spoke like a dragon. The two horns also denoted civil power and authority. One horn was Germany and the other horn was England, the first two nations to stand against Rome and for Protestantism.
- Rev. 13:13, says “And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.”
- In Revelation 13:14,
- 14 And deceiveth 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.
Slide 9 - Rev. 13:15, tells us that “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.”
- The bible says in Revelation 13:16, “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a make in the right hand, or in their foreheads. Some may say what is the mark of the beast. First of all a mark is what denotes a particular thing. Many things in life have marks to distinguish their brand or goods, even humans have what we call birth marks or identifying marks. Spiritually speaking the mark of the beast is; A Beast Name, A Beast Doctrine, and A Beast Spirit.
Slide 11 - What does numbers 666 mean?
Slide 12 - Numbers and Scriptures
- The Number 1
- Is always the number of God (Duet 6:1-4)
- The Number 2
- Is the number of Witnesses (Matthew 18:16)
- The Number 3
- The Godhead, Is the number of the Trinity
- The Triune God- Father, son, and Holy Spirit.
- The Number 4
- Is the number of the Earth?
Slide 13 - Numbers and Scriptures continued
- The Number 4 is thought to represent Gods absolute control over the world.
- 4 Directions on the earth (north, south, east, and west).
- 4 Seasons (summer, autumn, winter, and spring).
- The Number 5
- Is the number of separation and Responsibility like 10 Virgins, where 5 was wise and 5 were foolish.
- The Number 6
- Is the number of Man
- Man was created on the 6th day of creation.
- The number 6 is thought to represent man's weakness and inability to achieve perfection and sinlessness. Because of sin man must work for 6 days to remember his sin. 6 can also be seen as the number of evil and its full development. Rebellion will run its full course with the man of sin and the number of his name, 666.
Slide 14 - The Mark of the Beast
- Rev. 13:17 says, “And that no might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. You cannot receive their right hand of fellowship unless you receive their teaching in your knowledge (forehead), or where there sect name.
- Rev. 13:18, tells us that, 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 are 666. The lettering on the Pope’s crown VICARIUS FILLI DEI in Roman calculation add up to the number 666.

Slide 18 - The Image to the Beast
- In a few years a dividing and competitive bitter spirit began to spring up among the reformers. There is nothing than can kill a work of God, like when people who say they are saved, get bitter and get in fights with one another. As God began to give light to different men, some people refuse to walk in that like given, other than the light from their favorite reformer. They would only accept that light which came through their reformer. Luther got some light, Calvin got some light and Zwingli got some light.
- Some people had the spirit, I’ll take what Luther said, but I’m not interested in what Calvin said, ‘not considering what was bible”, but what did Luther say. And this cause a party spirit. Like the Church at Corinth. 1 Cor. 1:9-17
