What You Need to Overcome the Beast

Read the Bible in a year by reading Revelation 13 today.
Revelation 13 reveals two dreadful beasts. It is frightening to read of them, especially because verse 7 says that the first beast would overcome the saints. However, the saints eventually overcame him, and we shall overcome any beast that comes our way. Here is how. After stating in verse 9 that we truly need to hear what is being said, John then wrote that the people who make up the beast would reap what they sow. Pay attention carefully to verse 10, which declares,
He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity; he who kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints (Revelation 13:10).
The beast led people into captivity, including Christians, but his time came for him to be led into captivity. The beast killed people with the sword, but the time arrived that the beast was killed with the sword. How did the saints endure such times, and how can we survive similar times when wicked beasts arise against us? Listen to the last sentence of that passage again,
Here is the patience and the faith of the saints (Revelation 13:10b).
Be patient and have faith. God will take care of you.
