The Matthew 24 series on Jesus’ “Olivet Discourse” continues. This week covers Matthew 24:15+ and examining Revelation’s Beasts in Revelation chapter 13. It’s the most graphic, thorough, and most dramatic rise of the antichrist anywhere in Scripture. We will be focusing on the fatal wound that mimics the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. These are all signs of Christ’s second coming return.
Perilous Times – ‘15 “Therefore when you see the abomination of desolation which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), …21 For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will.“‘ Matthew 24:15, 21 NASB
The Beast from the Sea & Earth – ‘1 And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast 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…10 If anyone leads into captivity or 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.’ Revelation 13:1; 10 NASB
