The Beast the Devil and his minions the beasts.
The book of Revelation has been revealed to the servant of Jesus Christ. The revelation came from God about the things to come, not to put fear to mankind but advice in the name of His love for us. God wants us to come close near to Him because we as humans are being separated from God because of sins. We chose Him and yet we cannot obey to follow His commandments. We do things dictated by the prince of the air. We cannot deny that this world is the kingdom of Sin.
1 John 5:19—“We know that we are of God and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.”
John 7:7—“The world cannot hate you, but it hates Me because I testify of it, that its deeds are evil.”
The ruler of this world hates us because it cannot fully claim our souls and although the Master of Sin can claim our minds, but not our hearts. As Paul said in Ephesians 1 “And Him, having heard and believed the word of truth— the gospel of your salvation— you were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit…”
Sin can claim the labor of our hand and our senses but not the whole of our living souls that has been longing for God since Sin entered the world. We sin because we need to survive in this world so we can continue the race to fight the good fight of faith.
The ruler of this world hates us because of the thought that we want to overthrow his kingdom and give it back to God who owns it. Jesus said; “you know that it has hated me before it hated you.” The Spirit of God dwells among us and that is the assurance that they cannot take that away from us.
1 John 4:4-5—“You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. They are from the world; therefore they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them.”
The ruler of this world and his beasts deceives and blinds the minds of those who are ignorant and lack knowledge of God’s word. The gods of this world attacked our senses so we cannot see the light of the gospel and not feel the glory of Christ. Our weaknesses have been attacked day in and night out. We should strengthen our faith and our defense against the spirit that is now in submission working with the children of disobedience.
The ruler of this world is coming out to face judgment and is scared more than ever because their time is up and the ruler is aware that he has been judged beforehand. From heaven, he was cast out, and instead of punishment, God is just to forgive sins. As they were given a chance to change heart, they were also given this world to rule, but instead made this earth a sinful place to live and anyone that wants to change righteously will be treated as an outsider and will be attacked. They will be cast from the world, and the place for them as Peter mentioned, their destination is called Tartaroo. This is the place for the angels that sinned against God, the abode of the wicked dead, where they will suffer punishment.
1 John 2:15-16—“Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life is not from the Father, but is from the world.”
God is all in all.
