Revelation 13 consists of the Tribulation.
Remember: The book of Daniel is the skeleton for the End Times Chronology and the book of Revelation provides the flesh.
"And the dragon [Satan] stood on the
sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast [Antichrist] coming up out of the
sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten
diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. 2 And the beast which I saw was like a
leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth
of a lion. [These
three beasts are also seen in Daniel 7:4-8] And the dragon gave him
his power and his throne and great authority. [The 10 horns and seven heads of vs. 2 and the three parts of the animals of vs. 3 are all explained in my book.] 3 I
saw one of his heads as if it had been slain [The beast wasn't slain i.e. the Antichrist wasn't killed...one of his heads was slain and was healed. Most people teach that the Antichrist will be assassinated and rise again from the dead...that is not what this is saying.], and his fatal wound was
healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast;
4 they worshiped the dragon because he
gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is
like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?” [They will find out at Armageddon!] 5 There was given to him a mouth speaking
arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months [3½ years] was
given to him. [He doesn't have the authority and power in and of himself...the dragon gave him his...and where did the dragon get it from?] 6 And he opened
his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle,
that is, those who dwell in heaven.
7 It was also given to him to make
war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and
people and tongue and nation was given to him. [See also Daniel 7:25] 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship
him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the
world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
10 If anyone is destined for
captivity, to captivity he goes; if anyone kills with the sword, with the sword
he must be killed. Here is the perseverance and the faith of the saints.
11 Then I saw another beast [the false prophet] coming up out of the earth; and
he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon. 12 He exercises all the authority of the
first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it
to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even
makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the
earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of
the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast
who had the wound of the sword and has come to life. 15 And it was given to him to give breath
to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and
cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 And he causes all, the small and the
great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given
a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17 and he provides that no one will
be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either 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
the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six."
[Revelation 13:16-18 the
mark of the beast]
Remember, Revelation 13 is depicting what is going on with the enemy. All his ability was given to him. He is not equal with our God. Our enemy cannot create a thing. He is only a counterfeit.
Add to this scene the picture of the Spirit-filled church of the book of Acts and throughout the New Testament. Remember the power encounters between God and the false gods (i.e. Mt. Carmel, Moses, the Egyptian army, and the Red Sea) of the Old Testament.
No sir, these are not doom and gloom times. They are a time for the Body of Christ to shine forth as the stars of heaven. We will fight the good fight. If we are martyred then there is a special place reserved for us in heaven.
Let us not shrink back today or if we are alive in these tumultuous days discussed here.
I thank the Lord that He gave us Revelation 13, so that we can better picture and understand the end times events...particularly here the Tribulation.
