Expelled from heaven, a “great voice” warned that the “Dragon” was enraged, knowing that he had only a “short season” to destroy on the saints. First, he attempted to persecute the “woman” who produced the “son,” but was thwarted from doing so. Next, he launched his “war” against her “seed,” those who had the “testimony of Jesus.” - [Photo by Immo Wegmann on Unsplash].

Victory over the Beast

Having overcome the “beast,” the saints reign with Christ as “priests of God” during the “thousand years”Revelation 20:4-6

When Satan was imprisoned, the victorious saints began their reign as “
priests of God,” sitting “on thrones” because of their  “testimony,” and because they did not render homage to the “beast” or its image, and did not take it “mark.” Therefore, they “lived and reigned” with Jesus for the “thousand years” - [Photo by Evgeni Tcherkasski on Unsplash].

Beast and False Prophet Destroyed

The Rider on the White Horse destroyed the “Beast from the sea” along with the “False Prophet,” the “beast from the earth”Revelation 19:17-21.

The next vision portrays the destruction of the “beast from the sea” and the “False Prophet.” The passage does not state where this climactic battle occurred, other than on the earth. In focus is the destruction of the “beast” and its vassals, and their consignment to the “Lake of Fire.” - [

King of Kings

The Messiah “shepherds” the nations by the “word” that proceeds out of his mouth in preparation for the final battle - Revelation 19:11-16

The vision now anticipates the destruction of the “
beast” and the “False Prophet” by introducing the royal warrior figure riding a “white horse.” The groundwork for the coming climactic “battle” was laid with the announcement of the impending victory of the “Lamb” over the “beast” and the “kings of the earth” in chapter 17 - For he is “Lord of lords and King of kings.” - [Photo by Mita Park on Unsplash].

Lamb Overcomes the Beast

The Lamb overcomes the Beast and Babylon, because he is the Lord of lords, and King of kings Revelation 17:14-18

John is provided with the interpretation of what he just saw: “
Babylon” is the “great city” that sways the political powers of the earth allied with the “beast.” Her persecution of the “saints” is an extension of its “war” against them. Jesus overcomes the “beast,” “Babylon,” and the “kings of the earth,” but he does so in a most ironic fashion - [Photo by Nashad Abdu on Unsplash].
