‘And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?’ — Revelation 13:4
In the future, there will come a world ruler (the beast, the Antichrist) who will have as his goal to not only rule the world but receive worship from everyone in the world.
He will be empowered by Satan (v.4). He will speak great blasphemies against God (v.5-6). He will seek to overcome the saints (v.7-8).
Worship of the beast will be encouraged by a second beast (the false prophet) who will do great wonders to deceive the people on the earth (v.11-15).
The behaviour of Satan and Satanic empowered men in the end times is the type of thing he is trying to do today. He is working to deceive men, to take worship that should only be given to God, and to overcome the saints of God.
Let us not miss the fact that there Satan’s goal is the whole world. We must overcome Him with the word of the gospel. with the blood of the lamb and with our willingness to lay down our lives to serve Him (Rev 12:11).
