The Final Deception



The Final Deception


Revelation 13:11-18, Pastor Howard Harden
Message delivered June 22nd, 2014 during the morning services.

In today's Scripture, we are introduced to the second beast, later identified as "the false prophet" (16:13).  By studying his future deception, we see four tools he will use that are already employed by false teachers today.

  1. MISLEADING APPEARANCES. (vs. 11)
  2. A UNIVERSAL MESSAGE. (vs. 12)
  3. MIRACULOUS SIGNS. (vs. 13-15)
    • Not every miracle is REAL.
    • Not every miracle is DIVINE.
    • A miracle can be a WITNESS or a WARNING.
  4. RUTHLESS MANIPULATION. (vs. 16-18)
