THE FALSE PROPHET
Dr. Vines 8/4/85
If there is anything you learn in a study of the book of The Revelation,
it is this. Satan is always an imitator. Everything God does the devil tries
to imitate. We know that God has revealed Himself in three persons. This is
what we know in Christian doctrine of the Trinity. God is one God. Yet, the
Bible reveals to us that, God the one God, reveals himself to man in three
personalities. He reveals Himself as God the Father, God the Son and God the
Holy Spirit. So, God is one God, yet He is a trinity -- three distinct
personalities. In The Revelation we are presented the satanic trinity. In the
sixteenth chapter, the thirteenth verse, we have brought together every
personality in this terrible satanic trinity.
"And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out
of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the- mouth of
the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet."
There you have the devil's imitation trinity. The dragon we have already
studied. The beast out of the sea we have already studied. Tonight we are
going to look at this third in the satanic trinity -- the false prophet. Go
over to the 19:20. It tells us here the ultimate destiny of the beast out of
the sea - beast number one, and also the false prophet.
"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet
that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived
him that had received the mark of the beast and them that
worship his image. These both were cast alive into a lake
of fire burning with brimstone."
This is one of the reasons I love the book of The Revelation. It is the book
that tells us what is going to happen to the devil. One of these days the
Bible says that the beast and the false prophet and the dragon are going to be
cast into the lake of fire. God never prepared hell for a man to go there. God
never intended that any man go to hell. The Bible says that hell was prepared
