Today we continue to listen to a message by Pastor Joe Schimmel on what the bible has to say about The Rise of the beast and there was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months.
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. 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. If anyone has an ear, let him hear. 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.
