Lent Season Mar 26

Going Beyond Revelation
Carri Lynne Pratt
Counterfeit Christ
Today's Reading: Revelation 13:1-10
"One of his heads appeared to be fatally wounded, but his 
fatal wound was healed. The whole Earth was amazed
and followed the beast." Revelation 13:3

Keep in mind that Satan wants to be God / Jesus. In today's passage he re-enacts the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ in order to receive praise and worship from the inhabitants of Earth.  He is proud and ignorant enough to believe that this would be possible.

We read the beast was “fatally wounded” or in other words, dead. We then read his wound was healed, meaning, he came back to life.  The world is then deceived into worshiping him, which is exactly what Satan wants.

It is urgent to know this and to tell others. Inform your children. Let them know not to be deceived.  Do not think for a moment that this is Jesus come back. It’s not. It’s a flimsy re-enactment by a bad actor for a doomed humanity.

Reflection: Can I spot a counterfeit Christ?
