Pastor Stephen Bohr
Welcome back folks, we have some exciting things that we still need to study about Revelation chapter 12 and then we are going to get into Revelation chapter 13.
A very exciting chapter that’ll take us at least a couple of sessions, or perhaps a little bit more to deal with revelation 13:1-10, and then it’s going to take us two or three sessions to deal with the second beast of revelation 13.
The beast that rises from the earth, that has two horns like a lamb and ends up speaking like a dragon.
So we have a lot of study ahead of us, I trust that what we’ve studied so far has made sense, it’s been exciting to know that the Adventist Church folks has the correct biblical prophetic scenario, there’s no doubt about it when you look at the entire message of the Adventist church.

Anchor is a seminary-level course of study on the fundamentals of Seventh-day Adventist theology, taught by Pastor Stephen Bohr and guest theologians. Registration fee includes required text books and lecture handouts. Each student is responsible for his/her own daily meals, accommodations and transportation. ANCHOR’S MISSION STATEMENT The mission of ANCHOR is to settle students into the Truth both intellectually and spiritually so that they cannot be moved and to provide the theological skills to share with others the reason for the hope that is in them. “This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.” Hebrews 6:19-20 “Many who embraced the third message had not had an experience in the two former messages. Satan understood this, and his evil eye was upon them to overthrow them; but the third angel was pointing them to the most holy place, and those who had had an experience in the past messages were pointing them the way to the heavenly sanctuary. Many saw the perfect chain of truth in the angels’ messages, and gladly received them in their order, and followed Jesus by faith into the heavenly sanctuary. These messages were represented to me as an anchor to the people of God. Those who understand and receive them will be kept from being swept away by the many delusions of Satan.” Early Writings, p. 256 (emphasis supplied)
Revelation 13 Land Beast
Okay let’s go back to our material where we are now on page 43. And here’s the question, you have an Old Testament Elijah which is literal, and local, then you have John the Baptist who is the New Testament Elijah, and that’s a partial fulfilment. And then the prophecy of Malachi chapter 4 says that God is going to send Elijah before the great and terrible day of the Lord; but then we noticed in our last study that you have the Elijah during the 1260 years, so the question is.
How is it that you have this Elijah during the 1260 years, how can that be the Elijah that comes immediately before the terrible day of the Lord, the dreadful day of Lord?
The answer is folks, that when the Papacy’s deadly wound is healed: (What began during the 1260 years will conclude.) The only difference is that there has been a respite, or a period that the deadly wound has been in place, in other words if this prophecy had been fulfilled consecutively, if there had not been a deadly wound then you would have had the dreadful and terrible day of the Lord.
But because you have this parenthesis, where there is a cessation of persecution, then, when the deadly wound is healed, the Elijah prophecy will pick up again; are you understanding what I’m saying?
Revelation 13 Land Beast
“When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who have been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.”
Now don’t get all hung up over the souls that are crying out under the altar, the word ‘soul’ in the New Testament actually is the word ‘psü-khā’’, and it is translated many times ‘life’. And the life of the man is in his what, according to the Bible? The life of the person is in the blood, so when it says here that the souls are crying out from under the altar it means that the blood of the martyrs is crying out for justice, because they’ve been slain mercilessly.
Probably the best illustration of this is in the story of Cain and Abel, you know when Cain killed his brother, God asked Cain. Where is your brother? And he said; I don’t know where my brother is, I’m not my brother’s keeper, and then God said. The blood of your brother Abel cries to me from the ground, so it’s the blood that’s crying out for justice.
