The Other Beast // The Last Call // 07.12.20
“For I do not want you to be uninformed of the this mystery-so that you will not be wise in your own estimation-that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in; and so all Israel will be saved…” Romans 11:25-26a
“It’s the call you don’t want to miss.”
THE FALSE PROPHET...
1. Leads people to worship the Anti-Christ
2. Performs deceiving signs
3. Causes a created image to speak
*The second beast is copying God’s creative power
*Satan’s tactics do not change
*Worship the image or die
4. Marks people as a pledge of allegiance to the Anti-Christ
For the week of 07.12.20 // The Last Call
Intro: Read our text from Sunday: Revelation 13:11-18. As we typically ask you, please read it multiple times and write down your thoughts and questions. If you are in a Zoom small group bring your writings with you for discussion. Remember to take your time on this part of our study.
1.Revelation 13:12. Why do you think the authenticating factor for worshipping the first beast/anti-Christ is “his fatal wound was healed?”
2.Double Bonus Jeopardy Question. In Revelation 13:14-15 the false prophet/second beast commands the earth dwellers to make an image to the first beast/anti-Christ. How does this tie to Genesis 1:26-27 and Genesis 2:7? And if you would like to think a bit further, what implication does this have to our society today within the concept of “image?”
3. Read Revelation 13:14-15 again and then read Daniel 3:1-6 and explain the parallels between the two events around 2600 years apart. While you are at it, why do you think these things happen repeatedly in history?
4. In Revelation 13:16-17 we find the anti-Christ’s mark of allegiance to him. This mark will show that you’re a follower of him and I’m pretty sure modern technology will assist in keeping people from buying or selling without the mark of allegiance. Now this will NOT happen until we are Raptured, and they are well into the7 year tribulation. Here is my question, how have you seen the progression of how we make our purchases helped move toward this type of control? Explain
5. Last thought, why does the anti-Christ need a sidekick? You might want to look at the certain characteristics of his sidekick again in Revelation 13:11-15.

Join us on our Facebook page "NBCC CarePortal" to find ways to connect with and help our foster community and church. How it works, our liaison gets requests from social workers for families they are working with through Care Portal, then we post these requests in the group. Part of the ministry is that you will connect with people in our community and if the opportunity presents itself share the gospel or pray with someone. Meeting their physical needs is just a part of why we do this. Follow here for more information.
