  • Revelation: The beast will rise from the sea

    Revelation 13:1-10 discusses the beast from the sea.

    The beast rising up out of the sea is a mirror-image of the dragon, called forth from the peoples of the world (17:15) as an ally in his war against the saints.

    The crowns are the 10 horns (political power) not on the seven heads (the source of authority) which is the dragon who delegates authority to the beast. The beast is the incarnation of political-social evil and is a composite of Daniel’s pictures of past political powers (see Daniel 7:7).

  • It isn't easy to control the tongue

    We love to talk. Many radio stations have a 24/7 talk format. Everybody seems to have something to say.

    I read that the average American has 30 conversations a day. If you take our conversations for a year they would fill 123 books of 400 pages each or 52,800 pages per year. The average man speaks 20,000 words a day, while a woman speaks 30,000 words a day. Talking that much – there is no wonder our mouths get us into trouble.
