9. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
10. The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb.
11. And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up forever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast, and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. KJV.
Blaspheme -c) to vilify, to speak impiously, speak blaspheme, defame, speak evil.
This is the punishment of those who worship the beast. And it is a terrible punishment. We have examined the three parts of the beast. Now let’s examine the beast.
Rev. 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
Rev. 13:7 And it was given him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them.
Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and think to change the times of sacred feasts and holy days and the law and the saints shall be given into his hand for a time, two times and half a time (three and one-half years).
Daniel 7:26 But the judgment shall be set by the court of the Most High and they shall take away his dominion, to consume it (gradually) and to destroy it suddenly in the end.
The Beast has been given this power by God for a reason. If we are truly filled with the Holy Spirit, we will have the power to fight and win. But it does say we will be overcome by the Beast. He is allowed to make war against us and overcome us but not to win the war. He will win some battles. If we are fighting the good fight, then we should have had some defeats in our life.
We are to learn from our defeats and rise up with the spoils of war and head back into battle. We have been given the Kingdom to consume him gradually in the end. This is God’s way of perfecting His saints. If we get all the victory and glory at once, it will go to our heads and pride would get in the way.
This Beast spirit has a blasphemous tongue and if you have the presence of God dwelling in you, he will know it and will find a way to speak evil and maybe rail at you at some point in your life. This should not destroy us but verify to us that we belong to God. If you have not had this encounter in your life, then there is not much of the Holy Spirit in your life.
John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you. KJV.
He changes the laws and times of feasts. has he not made Same Sex Marriage legal and is trying to let children choose which gender they want to be? Also, during the pandemic scare they changed the Sabbath and closed Churches and told people to watch it on TV. He was changing the times of feasts.
There is a reason the punishment is so severe. The beast is here now and is in many leaders. You must pray and seek the Lord about this. We do have authority over the Anti-Christ Spirit and the Beast. We must take authority and tell him to take his infernal fingers off of God’s people. We will defeat him and be given the Kingdom, but it will be done gradually without fanfare or notoriety. The Lord knows what we need, and we will come forth as gold!
1Chronicles 29:11 Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty; for all that is in the heavens and the earth are Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and yours it is to be exalted as head overall. Amp.
