THE BEAST FROM THE SEA

Revelation 13:1[ASV]
And he stood upon the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns, and seven heads, and on his horns ten diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy.

Read Revelation 13:1-10

In this scripture, we see that the beast exerted great influence and authority over the earth. The beast was permitted to wage war against the saints. This war against the saints manifests in various dimensions, from deception that leads to heresies or actual denial of the faith to physical killing of Christians. Satan kills Christians through the influence of the beast. The question here should not be who the beast is or when the beast is, but rather, will we succumb to the beastly influence that is fighting for our allegiance?

Dear friend, there is a beastly influence, invisible to the human eye, that has been released over our campuses, offices, the political sphere and even the church, too powerful for any human resistance. This beastly influence challenges the authority of God in our lives. How does the beast conquer the saints? Whenever a Christian denies Jesus in the face of persecution or abandons the faith due to pressure, he has given in to the beastly influence. This influence also encourages believers to live habitually in sin.

The way you will overcome the power of the beast is 'by the blood of the lamb and the word of your testimony' (see Rev 12:11). The blood cleanses you from all sin; removing the leverage and license the beast would have had over you.
The word of your testimony is the word of God that has become Rhema to you. These are God’s promises that have become your own [through revelation].

Go into today knowing that you have been given power over all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19). If you remain in Christ Jesus, you are the overcomer.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I thank you for loving me. I ask that you help me always walk in your light and conquer the forces of darkness against me. Amen.
