Welcome back, we are going to continue our study of Revelation chapter 17; and what I’m going to do is review the last five minutes or so of our last session.
And then we are going to go into some new material, beginning at the subtitle that says the ‘Perspective of Daniel 11 verses 40 to 45’ in your syllabus.
Now let’s review what we studied from Revelation chapter 12: There we are told that the dragon persecuted the woman for 1260 years; but towards the end of this period the waters that the dragon was spewing out of his mouth were dried up by the earth. Is that the end of the story? No! Do the waters flow again? Yes, because it says the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed.

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)
So we have these three stages in Revelation chapter 12.
- The 1260 years when the waters are flowing.
- Then the earth swallows up the waters and they don’t flow anymore.
- And then the dragon is enraged and the waters are flowing again to try and drown the remnant of her seed.
Now in Revelation 13 we have a similar scenario: We have a beast that ruled for 42 months; at the end of the 42 months it receives a deadly wound, did all of the heads receive a deadly wound? No! Only one of the heads was functioning during the 42 months. How many mouths were spewing out water in Revelation chapter 12? One mouth. Is that the same head, the head that has the deadly wound, and the same mouth that is spewing out waters during the 1260 years? Absolutely; and then we find in Revelation 13 that the waters are going to flow again aren’t they?
Because the beast from the earth is going to join with the beast from the sea, and there’s going to be persecution; people are not going to be able to buy or sell, and people are going to be subject to a death decree because they don’t worship the beast or his image or receive the mark.
