In 1937, referring to the increasing tensions in Europe with Germany, Winston Churchill used near biblical language when he said, “Dictators ride to and fro upon tigers which they dare not dismount. And the tigers are getting hungry.”
In our study of Revelation, this Sunday we arrive at the account of the Beasts out of the Sea and the Land. Who are these beasts? What is this meaning of 666? How do we the church do battle in the ways of the Lamb rather than succumbing to the ways of the Beasts?
The beasts of imperial worship in John’s day have morphed into new disguises today, but that is exactly what Babylon has done throughout history. It is important that we, the church, don’t get distracted by trying to figure out who the beast is, or when he will arrive, all the while he is present among us and we may well be bowing in worship without even thinking about it.
Join us in worship as we explore the two beasts of Revelation and our call to patient endurance and faithfulness.
