"Will You worship the Dragon?"
Revelations Chapter 13 we read concerning the dragon, Satan,
that "all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him,
whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb
slain from the foundation of the world (Rev. 13:8)."
we were told in the very next verse
that "If any man have an ear, let him hear (Rev. 13:9)".
the obvious question must be asked?
Do you have ears to hear?
is an important question
because the very nature of the question itself
lets us know by implication
that there are those who don't have them, right?
there are two types of people
who will read the rest of the 13th chapter of Revelation.
Those who have "ears to hear" and those who do not.
who do not cannot "see" or "hear" past the flesh level
and cannot understand
that the tribulation of the false-christ
is a battle for their soul, not their flesh.
they read "kill with the sword"
they think about their flesh,
despite the fact that we are told in Rev. 1:16
that the "sword" is the Word of God.
they read of "famine"
they think about their bellies,
despite the fact that Amos 8:11 tells us
that the famine of the end times is for the hearing of the Word of God.
fact they love to hear preachers tell them
how they are going to "fly away" in the clouds to save what?
They say you must be saved to be "raptured".
To save their flesh!
the Rapture Theory have anything to do
with other than saving their little old flesh hides?
Think about it!
Did Paul tell us in Eph. 6 to put on the gospel armour to fly away or to take a stand?
our Christian soldiers when they go off to war
ask God to protect them on the front lines.
don't ask Him to fly them away
so they can watch the battle from a remote place of safety.
Is the Bible a book about saving your flesh or your soul?
we be worried beyond that which
is the instinct of natural preservation about our bodies,
which are going to wither and die ANYWAY!
Here's what Jesus Christ has to say concerning the matter:
Matthew 10:28 And fear not them which kill the body,
but are not able to kill the soul:
but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
