A Study of the End Times - Revelation PM # 21 - The Unholy Trinity 07/29/2018
To understand this unholy prince, we have to go and find all the pieces of prophecies about him, for the Holy Spirit has scattered them everywhere.
In Daniel, we are told of his political background and savvy. In Matthew, we are told of his hatred for the Jews. In Thessalonians, we’re told of his deceptive ways and in Revelation, we are told of his wicked alliance with the dragon or satan himself.
In this chapter, we get a glimpse at how the devil thinks, for he is not the creator of anything except confusion for we see he is nothing but a great imitator and just as he has false religions, false churches, and false teachers, here he reveals the false trinity! The devil is the head, the anti-christ as the resurrected messiah and the false prophet being the spirit.
And remember “Revelation” means revealing, pulling back of the spiritual curtain so the earth will see through study of prophecy some amazing things. While there are wonderful things we can see of Christ, in this chapter we see the absolute wickedness of and evil power of the dragon.
In this sermon, we’ll see about the closing of the Lamb’s book of life and see the time when the last person will be written in it. We’ll also see about the trickery and deception of the false prophet and false churches. We’ll see that the devil, having been kicked out of heaven in chapter 12, holds nothing back and now possesses an image in the temple and demands to be worshipped. We’ll learn about the unholy trinity.
