The false prophet.
We’ve talked about the dragon, we’ve talked about the beast, and now we are going to talk about the false prophet. You remember, the kingdom of men, as it is described in the phrase, “Babylon the Great,” that we’ve read now a number of times, in Revelation Ch 16, is comprised of three parts, the dragon, beast and false prophet, relating to the military, the economic and the religious aspects of that kingdom, and you must understand, as we come to talk about the false prophet this afternoon, that he is an extremely formidable power. It is the false prophet who is going to unite the dragon of the eastern Roman Empire and the beast of the Western Roman Empire together, prior to the battle of Armageddon, after the armies of the Europeans, and those of the rest of the world are destroyed upon the mountains of Israel. It is this false prophet that will unite the ten-horned beast and charge him directly into the line of fire of the man on the horse of Revelation Ch 19. Consider therefore, just how powerful this system is.
