How long will you be steeping on both sides?

Theme : " How long will you be steeping on both sides? " Text : Revelation 13: 11-18


11. Then I saw another beast come up out of the earth, which had two horns like a lamb's horn, and it spoke like a dragon. 12. She exercised all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound had been healed. 13. She worked great wonders, even to the point of causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men. 14. And she deceived the inhabitants of the earth by the wonders which were given to her to do in the presence of the beast, telling the inhabitants of the earth to make an image for the beast which had the wound of the sword, and who lived. 15. And it was given unto him to animate the image of the beast, that the image of the beast might speak, and cause that all that would not worship the image of the beast should be slain. 16. And she caused that all, small and great, rich and poor, free and slaves, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, 17. And that no one could buy or sell, without having the mark, the name of the beast or the number of its name. 18. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast. For it is a number of a man, and his number is six hundred and sixty-six.

Let us remember :


This passage seems the opposite of that of 1 Kings 18 in which by the request of the prophet Elijah; God brought down fire from heaven. Here it is the beast that brings down the fire. Elijah had all the prophets of Baal and Astarte killed; here they kill all those who refuse to worship the beast. Obviously our civilization has taken a similar turn: all those who do not adhere to certain beliefs, practices, way of life, clothing, language ... are "excluded" from the elite; they are tarnished by false testimony; they are outraged. The current age of the Church is an age of perseverance because he who does not persevere will fall into the compromises of this vulgar century. As the people move away from the fold, they will come across the mark of the beast and suffer that mark. Excellent Saturday. Amen Alain Louz.-
