Hello J,

Thank you for contacting BibleAsk.

It appears that Christians today are the last generation that are described in Revelation 13 and 14. These two chapters speak about the two great beasts. In Revelation 13, the first beast, the Papacy, rises from the sea and has seven heads and ten horns, it is wounded but its “deadly wound was healed.” https://bibleask.org/who-is-the-beast-of-revelation-13/

The second beast has two horns like a lamb and speaks liked a dragon (Revelation 13:11). The second beast represents the USA and comes on the scene and is ready to make an image to the first beast. It tries to force everyone on earth to worship the first beast. https://bibleask.org/who-is-the-second-beast-of-revelation-13/

This generation is going to see political and religious forces within America encouraging the Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox churches to unite and form a one-world church that challenges God’s law for the sake of false unity, prosperity and peace. However, there will be a people who will remain true to God and refuse to receive the mark of the beast. These people are “those who keep the commandment of God and the faith of Jesus” (Revelation 14:12).

World powers will turn against God’s people and force a decision for or against God’s kingdom. This conflict will spot-light the fourth commandment, the law that focuses on the seventh day Sabbath and God as Creator (Exodus 20:8-11). The crisis will come when symbolic Babylon prevails upon the state to enforce Sunday observance by civil law and seeks to punish all dissenters.

That’s why the first angel’s message warns us to “worship Him who made heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water” (Revelation 14:7). But those who choose to keep God’s law will triumph (1 John 5:3; John 14:15). Jesus assures His children saying, “he who endures to the end will be saved” (Matthew 10:22).

In His service,
