Revelation 13: The Devil has NO Power
John sees a monster rise up out of the sea; “…having seven heads and ten horns… and the dragon gave him his power… and great authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly would was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast, And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast?…” (Revelation 13:1-4)
Many people marveled at the dragons “power” and even began to worship the dragon, mocking God by exclaiming that no one else had more power. John explains that the beast was even given power; “…to make war with the saints, and to overcome them… And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb…” (Revelation 13:7-8) Essentially, if you are not following Christ, you could be vulnerable to fall under the power of Satan. Many will be deceived because of the ‘miracles’ that the beast will perform. The number of the beast is 666.
