The devil works through people and governments

Revelation Bible Background

12.26.2016 – New Testament: Rev 17.12

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 17 on December 26, In the year of our Lord 2016

By Don Ruhl

We do not see a beast fighting Christians or the church, nor do we see the devil himself, but he uses agents, such as the beast, representing a particular government. While the Lord uses any king He desires, Satan also uses kings,

“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast” (Revelation 17.12). 

And so they fight against and martyr the faithful disciples of Jesus Christ. Do not let any entity frighten you, but fear the Lord first and above all.


  • Do you let the world silence you and your faith?
  • What should you do to grow in boldness?
