Song: Revelation Song/ Phillips, Craig & Dean
Scripture: Revelation 13:11-18 (The MSG) This occurs after Christ’s followers have been raptured. (Taken up to Heaven with Jesus) The mark of the beast occurs during the tribulation.
“I saw another Beast rising out of the ground. It had two horns like a lamb but sounded like a dragon when it spoke. It was a puppet of the first Beast, made earth and everyone in it worship the first Beast, which had been healed of its deathblow. This second Beast worked magical signs, dazzling people by making fire come down from Heaven. It used the magic it got from the Beast to dupe earth dwellers, getting them to make an image of the Beast that received the deathblow and lived. It was able to animate the image of the Beast so that it talked, and then arrange that anyone not worshiping the Beast would be killed. It forced all people, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to have a mark on the right hand or forehead. Without the mark of the name of the Beast or the number of its name, it was impossible to buy or sell anything. Solve a riddle: Put your heads together and figure out the meaning of the number of the Beast. It’s a human number: 666.”
Prayer: Jesus, we pray against the mark of the beast, the Antichrist, during the tribulation period. Thank you for your prophecy, the foretelling of what will happen. God, we pray people will receive you before the rapture occurs, so they will not have to endure the tribulation period! For those who accept Jesus as their Savior in the tribulation time, I pray they realize they are NOT to take this mark upon their hand or forehead in any form. It might be a tattoo, a barcode, or a microchip implanted into the hand or body. Lord, how I pray people to receive you and your eternal life and not give their allegiance to Satan by getting the mark of the beast! Thank you, Jesus, for your love, power, and might! Amen.
Decree out loud: I decree I am one of God’s holy and passionate and part of His remnant! I decree we will faithfully stand our ground. I declare people are awakening to their great need for Jesus and receiving Him as their Savior! Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners! (1 Tim.1:15)
Prophetic encouragement: I see a billion-soul harvest and reformation happening across the land! I see people praying the prayer of salvation, asking Jesus to be the Lord of their life and for forgiveness of their sins. I see the water of baptisms being stirred! I see people who are radically set free from addiction, bad habits, self-loathing, and a life filled with evil! Hallelujah! Thank you, Jesus, for your redeeming love!
