Revelation Beast's Authority
(Revelation 13.5-7)
Page 184

"The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months. It opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. It was given power to make war against God's holy people and to conquer them. It was given the authority over every tribe, people, language and nation." (Revelation 13.5-7)

Where Demons were

The Caspian SeaThe sea is one of the places where demons were thought to live by many people in the Roman era. So that if a sailor fell overboard and drowned it was thought to have been the demons that caused his death! For this reason the Jews did not like to venture out of sight of land, but even their boats hugged the coast line. Other demons were thought by the Jews to dwell in the desert for similar reasons. During Solomon's reign, it was the Phoenicians who brought in imports of wood and fine goods across the Mediterranean Sea and carried out exports from a prosperous Israel. Jonah went aboard a vessel for Nineveh manned by non-Jews. The fact that the Revelation beast's authority was given a mouth shows that it was controlled by Satan, a higher power. The question is, "Would you bow the knee and worship another God, or choose persecution instead?"
