New American Standard Version of the Bible"And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone."  Revelation 19:20 (NAS)

Although the beast and false prophet had gathered with the kings of the earth to battle against the One on the white horse...there is no recorded recorded struggle.  The beast and the false prophet are seized and thrown into the lake of fire.

The great supper of God:

For all those who have joined with Satan's beast and false prophet, this is a tragic day...a day of horror.  There was an angel standing in the sun:

New American Standard Version of the BibleAnd I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried out with a loud voice, saying to all the birds which fly in midheaven, "Come, assemble for the great supper of God; 18 in order that you may eat the flesh of kings and the flesh of commanders and the flesh of mighty men and the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them and the flesh of all men, both free men and slaves, and small and great." Revelation 19:17-18 (NAS)

Although the beginning of chapter 19 talks about the marriage feast of the Lamb, this is not an ordinary wedding feast or supper.  In this feast, those who have allied themselves with Satan, Satan's beast and/or the false prophet become the feast for birds:

New American Standard Version of the Bible"And the rest were killed with the sword which came from the mouth of Him who sat upon the horse, and all the birds were filled with their flesh."  Revelation 19:21 (NAS)

How does the sword which came from Jesus' mouth relate to this judgment?

Consider the following scriptures:

New American Standard Version of the Bible"He who rejects Me, and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day."  John 12:48 (NAS)

"For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart."  Hebrews 4:12  (NAS)

"And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."   Ephesians 6:17 (NAS)

"Repent therefore; or else I am coming to you quickly, and I will make war against them with the sword of My mouth."  Revelation 2:16 (NAS)


How important would it have been to the Christians suffering intense persecution at that time to know what would happen to this beast and the false prophets who were persecuting, killing and deceiving those around them who were followers of Christ?  What a horror it will be for those who have allied themselves with the things of Satan and false teaching.  Jesus says in Luke chapter 11:

New American Standard Version of the Bible"He who is not with Me is against Me; and he who does not gather with Me, scatters." Luke 11:23 (NAS) See also Matthew 12:30.

Are you on God's side or not?  If not...we beg you to change your heart and mind and to obey the gospel of Christ (see Lesson 1).

We continue to add below to the list of promises that Jesus makes to His followers:
