BEAST AND FALSE PROPHET DESTROYED

The Rider on the White Horse destroyed the “Beast from the sea” along with the “False Prophet,” the “beast from the earth”Revelation 19:17-21.

SYNOPSIS:   Humanity is divided into two groups – men who have the mark of the Beast, and those who bear the name of the Lamb’s Father – Revelation 13:16-18.

EMBRACING THE MARK

SYNOPSIS – The “inhabitants of the earth” willingly venerate the Beast, although Christians are not immune from taking its “mark.”
