Is Your Name Written In The LAMB'S Book Of Life?

Revelation 13:1-18 NIV

The Beast out of the Sea

1The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. 

And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads, with ten crowns on its horns, and on each head a blasphemous name. 2The beast I saw resembled a leopard, but had feet like those of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion. The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.

 3One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. 

4People worshiped the dragon because he had given authority to the beast, and they also worshiped the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast? Who can wage war against it?”

5The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. 6It opened its mouth to blaspheme GOD, and to slander HIS Name and HIS Dwelling Place and those who live in Heaven. 7It was given power to wage war against GOD’S holy people and to conquer them. And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 

8All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast

—all whose names have not been written in 

the LAMB’S Book of Life, The LAMB WHO Was Slain 

from the creation of the world.

9Whoever has ears, let them hear.

10“If anyone is to go into captivity,

into captivity they will go.

If anyone is to be killed with the sword,

with the sword they will be killed.”

This calls for patient endurance and faithfulness on 

the part of GOD’S people.

The Beast out of the Earth

11Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It 

had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 

12It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people. 

14Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth. It ordered them to set up an image in honor of the beast who was wounded by the sword and yet lived. 

15The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 

16It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 

17so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

18This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. 

That number is 666.

Greek Text

18Ὧδε ἡ σοφία ἐστίν· ὁ ἔχων νοῦν ψηφισάτω τὸν ἀριθμὸν τοῦ θηρίου· ἀριθμὸς γὰρ ἀνθρώπου ἐστί· καὶ ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτοῦ χξς’.

The Heavenly Sign Of The Woman and The Dragon

Revelation 12:1-17 NIV

The Woman and the Dragon

1A great sign appeared in heaven: 

A woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.3Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 

4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. 

The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 

5 She gave birth to a Son, a male child, Who “Will Rule 

all the nations with an iron scepter.”And her Child Was 

Snatched Up To GOD and To HIS TRONE. 

6The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her By GOD, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

7Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the

dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 

8But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in Heaven. 

9The great dragon was hurled

down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or satan, who leads 

the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:

“Now Have Come the Salvation and the Power
and The KINGDOM of our GOD
and The Authority of HIS MESSIAH.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
who accuses them Before our GOD day and night,
has been hurled down.

11They triumphed over him
By The Blood of The LAMB
and By The WORD of their Testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
as to shrink from death.

12Therefore rejoice, you heavens
and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
because he knows that his time is short.”

13When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach. 

15Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. 16But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 

17Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep GOD’S Commands and hold fast their Testimony About JESUS.

JESUS THE MESSIAH Will Reign For Ever and Ever

Revelation 11:1-19 NIV

The Two Witnesses

1I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, 

“Go and measure the Temple of GOD and the altar, 

with its worshipers. 2But exclude the outer court; do 

not measure it, because it has been given to the 

Gentiles. They will trample on the Holy City for 42 


3 And I Will Appoint MY two witnesses, and they will

prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” 

4They are “the two olive trees” and the two 

lampstands, and “they stand Before The LORD of the 


5If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. 

6They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.

7Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. 8Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city—which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where also their LORD Was Crucified. 

9For three and a half days some from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. 10The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.

11But after the three and a half days the breath of life From GOD entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. 

12Then they heard a loud Voice from heaven saying to them,

 “Come Up Here.” 

And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.

13At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave Glory To The GOD of Heaven.

14The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming soon.

The Seventh Trumpet

15The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, 

which said:

“The kingdom of the world has become
The KINGDOM of our LORD and of HIS MESSIAH, and HE Will Reign for ever and ever.”

16And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones Before GOD, fell on their faces and worshiped GOD, 


“We give thanks to YOU, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY,
Because YOU Have Taken YOUR Great Power
and Have Begun to Reign.

18The nations were angry,
and YOUR Wrath Has Come.
The time has come for judging the dead,
and for Rewarding YOUR servants the prophets
and YOUR people who revere YOUR Name,
both great and small—
and for Destroying those who destroy the earth.”

19Then GOD’S Temple in Heaven was opened, and within HIS Temple Was Seen The Ark of HIS Covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a severe hailstorm.
