Revelation 13:13 part 3
The Beast does great wonders and makes fire descend from heaven into the earth before humans! 
By Brother Mike (8-18--23; 55 minutes)

 

13 And he doeth Great Wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men ...  

 
INTRODUCTION 

In this verse, we had discovered in Revelation 13:13 part 1 that when it says, ... he [the beast] makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, it is spiritual language which means that during the Great Tribulation from May 21, 1988 to May 21, 2011 (for Revelation chapter 13 is set in the context of the Great Tribulation), the kingdom of Satan (also called the beast), which consists of Satan as its head, his demons, the counterfeit Christians, and the other unsaved people, makes judgment (symbolized by fire) come down from heaven into the corporate Christian church in the sight of or before humans by causing people to fall backward (see Revelation 13:13 part 1 ). Indeed, in that past study, we found that either making literal fire come down from heaven as God did through Elijah against the prophets of Baal in 1 Kings chapter 18, or making people to fall backward as Christ did to Judas and His enemies when they had come to seize Him in the Garden of

Gethsemane (John 18:1-6), both, spiritually, represent the same thing of bringing God's Judgment down from heaven against the transgressors. But since Satan is not able to make literal burning fire come down out of heaven into the churches before people to show that he is judge and God, as we had learned in that account of Elijah as he stood against the Prophets of Baal (1 Kings, chapter 18); nevertheless, Satan is able to make people fall backward in his Great Deception to make himself appear as if he is the true Judge and God. And that is what he did in the Christian churches during the Great Tribulation from May 21,1988 to May 21,2011, and even to this day. Yes, Satan continues to make it appear as if he can make judgment (symbolized by fire in our verse of Revelation 13:13) come down from heaven into the churches to deceive them into believing he is Judge and God by normally working through the beast's counterfeit Christians to touch people on their foreheads to make them fall backward while, at times, apparently even doing Great Wonders of healing or saving them too. These are the Great Wonders or Signs that the beast, with Satan being its head and his counterfeit Christians functioning as if they were his body, have been doing in the churches to help deceive many into worshipping him as if he were the true Lamb of God who takes away the sins of His people, when he is not. No, rather, he is the Master Deceiver who works through his counterfeit Christians and unsaved people as he sits as the counterfeit Christ and king, the Antichrist and Satan, over the entire corporate Christian church (all Christian churches) without them even knowing it.

for each time we see this to be the case in scripture, our argument for the literal falling backward of people in the churches being a Wonder or Sign of God's Judgment against them becomes stronger and stronger. And let's never forget that this whole phenomenon of people being made to fall backward by the head of the beast, Satan, making judgment come down from heaven into the Christian churches before humans as is symbolized by the beast making fire come down from heaven on the earth before humans, as we saw in Revelation 13:13, has been especially manifested in the churches during the period that the very accurate , Biblical Timeline of History had taught that it would be, for Revelation 13:13 taught that the falling backward of people in the churches during the Great tribulation was a sign of God's judgment having come upon the Christian churches (symbolized by the fire [judgment] coming down from heaven on the earth before humans in Revelation 13:13). But it was the Biblical Timeline of History that revealed exactly when that Great Tribulation took place, namely from May 21,1988 to May 21,2011. And, wonderfully, this Great Tribulation took place exactly when the whole phenomenon of falling backward was becoming big in the churches around the world to add further support for the accuracy of the Biblical Timeline of History (see evidence and proofs for the accuracy of the Biblical Timeline ).

Yes, in that we have seen this whole phenomenon of the beast making people fall backward (making fire come down from heaven into the churches), especially when the Biblical Timeline of History had revealed that it would,

Then, in Revelation 13:13 part 2 , it was confirmed even further to us that this making of God's Judgment (symbolized by fire) to come down out of heaven into the Christian churches during the Great Tribulation as made visible by their people literally falling backward when touched on the forehead by a counterfeit Christian of Satan and the beast has been a miraculous wonder or sign, performed by the beast, that reveals God's Judgment against those counterfeit Christians, and even the whole Christian Church, for we had discovered in our last study of Genesis chapter 49 that, once again, to be made to fall backward has to do with the revealing of God's Judgment against those people in which the falling backward takes place. Indeed, we had learned that as we (the Elect or Saints of God) bring or reveal God's Judgment against all those still in the Christian churches in fulfillment of the man, Israel's prophecy about the tribe of Dan judging his people in the latter days, they are made to fall backward off their horse because the whole notion of being made to fall backward means they are under the Judgment or Wrath of God. Simply put, as we, God's true people, reveal God's Judgment upon the whole corporate Christian church (all Christian churches), they are all said to fall backward because they are all under the Judgment of God. The whole notion of a people falling backward, then, means they (in this case, all those still in the Christian churches) are under the Judgment of God.

Now, let's look further in God's word, the Holy Scriptures, at the term fall backward to see if such terminology consistently symbolizes being under the Judgment or Wrath of God,

the Biblical Timeline is further evidenced to be true, as it always has been true because it comes directly from God's Holy Word, the Holy Bible, which is truth. Jesus once said, Thy word is truth (John 17:17); therefore, we can also say, Thy Biblical Timeline of History is Truth as well, for it all begins by simply following some given Biblical Guidelines in adding up the given years of the Biblical Genealogies in Genesis 5 and 11. If you know how to add up numbers and can follow a few given Biblical Guidelines, then you can also prove to yourself that our Biblical Timeline of History is accurate. You can begin by carefully reading Adam When, chapters 3-4 as well as The Clue Phrase, "called his name ." We also have an audio teaching that puts the timeline together as you listen by clicking here . But it will take some study on your part, for these things were not learned overnight; therefore, you should not expect to learn them overnight or make a conclusion without careful prayer over and study of all the Biblical information.

But now, moving on to today's study, the next place in the Bible where we find the terminology to do with falling backward is in 1 Samuel 4, which reads, 

18 And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck broke, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years

This scripture reveals, as we shall see, the prophesied end to the Head Priest, Eli in the days of the prophet, priest, and judge, Samuel.

Many of you are probably familiar with this story, but let's refresh our memories. As stated, Eli was the Head Priest, and Samuel was freely given to him by his mother, Hannah after being weaned from the breast to serve both God and Eli in the temple at Shiloh, for Hannah was barren before she bore Samuel, but she had prayed earnestly in the temple for God to give her a child while Eli, the chief Priest looked on. As she prayed, Eli thought she was drunk because he saw her lips moving as she prayed silently in earnest, but he heard no voice. And, as Hannah prayed, she promised God that if He would give her a child, she would bring the child back to the temple to serve both Eli and God therein for the rest of the child's life after the child had been fully weaned from her breasts. And God heard her prayer, and she gave birth to a son, Samuel, who she presented to Eli at the temple after the child had been weaned from her breasts. We read about this in detail in 1 Samuel 1:1-2:11. It reads, 

1 Now there was a certain man of Ramathaimzophim, of mount Ephraim, and his name was Elkanah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Elihu, the son of Tohu, the son of Zuph, an Ephrathite :
2
And he had two wives; the name of the one was Hannah, and the name of the other Peninnah: and Peninnah had children, but Hannah had no children
3 And this man went up out of his city yearly to worship and to sacrifice unto the LORD of hosts in Shiloh. And the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the priests of the LORD, were there . {yearly: Heb. from year to year }

Page 4

4 And when the time was that Elkanah offered, he gave to Peninnah his wife, and to all her sons and her daughters, portions :
5 But unto Hannah he gave a worthy [double]
portion; for he loved Hannah: but the LORD had shut up her womb . {worthy: or, double }
6
And her adversary [Penninah]
also provoked her [Hannah] sore, for to make her fret, because the LORD had shut up her womb . {provoked: Heb. angered } 
7 And as he did so year by year, when she [Hannah] went up to the house of the LORD, so she [Penninah] provoked her; therefore she [Hannah] wept, and did not eat . {when ... : or, from the time that she, etc: Heb. from her going up }
8 Then said Elkanah her husband to her, Hannah, why weepest thou? and why eatest thou not? and why is thy heart grieved? Am not I better to thee than ten sons
9 So Hannah rose up after they had eaten in Shiloh, and after they had drunk. Now Eli the priest sat upon a seat by a post of the temple of the LORD .
10 And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore . {in ... : Heb. bitter of soul } 
11 And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head . {a man ... : Heb. seed of men }
12 And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth . {continued ... : Heb. multiplied to pray } 
13 Now Hannah, she spoke in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken .
14
And Eli said unto her, How long wilt thou be drunken? put away thy wine from thee
15 And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD . {of a sorrowful ... : Heb. hard of spirit }
16 Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial: for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto . {complaint: or, meditation } 
17 Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him .
18 And she said, Let thine handmaid find grace in thy sight. So, the woman went her way, and did eat, and her countenance was no more sad
19 And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the LORD, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the LORD remembered her .
20 Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the LORD . {when ... : Heb. in revolution of days } {Samuel: that is, Asked of God }

Page 5

21 And the man Elkanah, and all his house, went up to offer unto the LORD the yearly sacrifice, and his vow .
22
But Hannah went not up; for she said unto her husband, I will not go up until the child be weaned, and then I will bring him, that he may appear before the LORD, and there abide forever
23 And Elkanah her husband said unto her, Do what seemeth thee good; tarry until thou have weaned him; only the LORD establish his word. So, the woman abode, and gave her son suck until she weaned him .
24
And when she had weaned him, she took him up with her, with three bullocks, and one ephah of flour, and a bottle of wine, and brought him unto the house of the LORD in Shiloh: and the child was young
25 And they slew a bullock, and brought the child to Eli .
26
And she said, Oh my lord, as thy soul liveth, my lord, I am the woman that stood by thee here, praying unto the LORD .
27 For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him :
28 Therefore also I have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the LORD. And he worshipped the LORD there . {lent him: or, returned him, whom I have obtained by petition } {he shall ... : or, he whom I have obtained by petition shall be returned } 

Now, as we read further into this true story about Eli, the Head Priest, and his two sons, Hophni and Phinehas, we find that Hophni and Phinehas, the two sons of Eli were sons of

the devil. They purposely took control of the Lord's sacrifices from His people to unlawfully take more of the best meat from the burnt offering for themselves in a way contrary to the law of Yahweh. They even laid with the women at the door of the congregation to commit fornication with them. But Eli did not severely punish his evil sons as he should have to make them stop their evil deeds, so God sent to Eli a Prophet to condemn his deeds and the deeds of his sons. The prophet told Eli that his two sons would die in one day, and the priesthood would be taken from his family line and given to a priest after Yahweh's own heart. We read the details of all this in 1 Samuel 2:12-36. It reads, 

12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD .
13
And the priests' custom with the people was, that, when any man offered sacrifice, the priest's servant came, while the flesh was in seething, with a fleshhook of three teeth in his hand
14 And he struck it into the pan, or kettle, or caldron, or pot; all that the fleshhook brought up the priest took for himself. So they did in Shiloh unto all the Israelites that came there .
15 Also before they burnt the fat, the priest�s servant came, and said to the man that sacrificed, Give flesh to roast for the priest; for he will not have sodden flesh of thee, but raw
16 And if any man said unto him, Let them not fail to burn the fat presently, and then take as much as thy soul desires; then

Page 6

he would answer him, Nay; but thou shalt give it me now: and if not, I will take it by force . {presently: Heb. as on the day }  
17 Wherefore the sin of the young men was very great before the LORD: for men abhorred the offering of the LORD .
18
But Samuel ministered before the LORD, being a child, girded with a linen ephod
19 Moreover his mother made him a little coat, and brought it to him from year to year, when she came up with her husband to offer the yearly sacrifice .
20
And Eli blessed Elkanah and his wife, and said, The LORD give thee seed of this woman for the loan which is lent to the LORD. And they went unto their own home . {loan ... : or, petition which she asked, etc } 
21 And the LORD visited Hannah, so that she conceived, and bare three sons and two daughters. And the child Samuel grew before the LORD .
22 Now Eli was very old, and heard all that his sons did unto all Israel; and how they lay with the women that assembled at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation . {assembled: Heb. assembled by troops } 
23 And he said unto them, Why do ye such things? for I hear of your evil dealings by all this people . {of your ... : or, evil words of you }
24 Nay, my sons; for it is no good report that I hear: ye make the LORD'S people to transgress . {transgress: or, cry out }
25 If one man sin against another, the judge shall judge him: but if a man sin against the LORD, who shall intreat for him?

Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto the voice of their father, because the LORD would slay them
26 And the child Samuel grew on, and was in favour both with the LORD, and also with men .
27 And there came a man of God unto Eli, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Did I plainly appear unto the house of thy father, when they were in Egypt in Pharaoh's house
28 And did I choose him out of all the tribes of Israel to be my priest, to offer upon mine altar, to burn incense, to wear an ephod before me? and did I give unto the house of thy father all the offerings made by fire of the children of Israel ?
29
Wherefore kick ye at my sacrifice and at mine offering, which I have commanded in my habitation; and honourest thy sons above me, to make yourselves fat with the chiefest of all the offerings of Israel my people
30 Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me forever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honor me I will honor, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed .
31 Behold, the days come, that I will cut off thine arm, and the arm of thy father�s house, that there shall not be an old man in thine house
32 And thou shalt see an enemy in my habitation, in all the wealth which God shall give Israel: and there shall not be an

We read about this in 1 Samuel 4,  

10 And the Philistines fought, and Israel was smitten, and they fled every man into his tent: and there was a very great slaughter; for there fell of Israel thirty thousand footmen .
11
And the ark of God was taken; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain . {were slain: Heb. died } 
12 And there ran a man of Benjamin out of the army, and came to Shiloh the same day with his clothes rent, and with earth upon his head .
13
And when he came, lo, Eli sat upon a seat by the wayside watching: for his heart trembled for the ark of God. And when the man came into the city, and told it, all the city cried out
14 And when Eli heard the noise of the crying, he said, What meaneth the noise of this tumult? And the man came in hastily, and told Eli .
15
Now Eli was ninety and eight years old; and his eyes were dim, that he could not see . {were dim: Heb. stood }  
16 And the man said unto Eli, I am he that came out of the army, and I fled today out of the army. And he said, What is there done, my son ? {is ... : Heb. is the thing }
17
And the messenger answered and said, Israel is fled before the Philistines, and there hath been also a great slaughter among the people, and thy two sons also, Hophni and Phinehas, are dead, and the ark of God is taken
18 And it came to pass, when he made mention of the ark of God, that he fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck broke, and he died: for he

 old man in thine house for ever . {an enemy ... : or, the affliction of the tabernacle, for all the wealth which God would have given Israel }  
33 And the man of thine, whom I shall not cut off from mine altar, shall be to consume thine eyes, and to grieve thine heart: and all the increase of thine house shall die in the flower of their age . {in the flower ... : Heb. men }
34
And this shall be a sign unto thee, that shall come upon thy two sons, on Hophni and Phinehas; in one day they shall die both of them
35 And I will raise me up a faithful priest, that shall do according to that which is in mine heart and in my mind: and I will build him a sure house; and he shall walk before mine anointed forever .
36
And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left in thine house shall come and crouch to him for a piece of silver and a morsel of bread, and shall say, Put me, I pray thee, into one of the priests' offices, that I may eat a piece of bread . {Put: Heb. Join } {one of ... : or, somewhat about the priesthood }  

Therefore, because Eli did not chasten his evil sons, Hophni and Phinehas, to keep them from all their evil upon the sacrifices to the Lord and from fornicating with the women at the door of the tabernacle of congregation, God, through the Man of God or Prophet, prophesied the end to the house of Eli and his two sons. And that end did come when the people of God went to battle against the Philistines. The result, then, was just as the prophet had told Eli it would be.

was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years .

And now, having gone over the major details of this true historical story in which we find the second mention in the Bible of the phenomenon of falling backward (remember, the first mention of falling backward was in our previous study of Genesis 49:17), we can begin to clearly see, once again, what falling backward has to do with. The verse again reads, 

1Sa 4:18 And it came to pass, when he [the messenger to Eli] made mention of the ark of God, that he [Eli] fell from off the seat backward by the side of the gate, and his neck broke, and he died: for he was an old man, and heavy. And he had judged Israel forty years

Obviously then, when Eli fell backward to break his neck and die, it was a sign of Yahweh's Judgment that came upon Eli and his whole house, including his two evil sons, Hophni and Phinehas. Thus, just as we saw in our previous study that when we read, Dan [who we learned are the Elect or Saints in our day] shall judge his people [who we learned are those still in the Christian churches], and then we read that that judging was pictured or symbolized by Dan (God's Elect or Saints) being a biting serpent at the horse heels causing those still in the Christian churches to fall backward off their horse (Genesis 49:16-17), all representing God's Judgment upon them, so also do we see here in Samuel 4:18 of today's study that when Eli

fell backward to break his neck, his falling backward represents God's Judgment upon him and his whole house. Thus, we see the whole notion of falling backward to represent or picture God's Judgment upon the group of people who are the transgressors, and this further supports the whole phenomenon of falling backward by being slain in the spirit in the churches of our day, when the counterfeit Christian usually touches the people on their foreheads, to be a sign or wonder of God's Judgment upon, not only those people, nor only that one church, but the whole corporate Christian Church (all Christian churches), as we shall see in the third and final Biblical reference to falling backward to next be considered. 

We read in Isaiah 28, 

7 But they [the residue or remnant of God's people in ancient Israel - see verse 5]
also have erred through wine, and through strong drink are out of the way; the priest and the prophet have erred through strong drink, they are swallowed up of wine, they are out of the way through strong drink; they err in vision, they stumble in judgment .
8 For all tables are full of vomit and filthiness, so that there is no place clean
9 Whom shall he teach knowledge? and whom shall he make to understand doctrine? them that are weaned from the milk, and drawn from the breasts . {doctrine: Heb. the hearing? }
10 For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little : {must be: or, hath been }

himself who deceived all the churches and congregations worldwide to worship him and receive the Mark of the Beast, and he brought in his counterfeit gospels, counterfeit teachings, and counterfeit signs and wonders to spiritually destroy them. 

Now, before moving on further, we should note that Christ, like Satan, is also referred to as a lion in scripture. Remember, we read,  
 
Re 5:5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David [Christ]
, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof .  
 
And, in describing Christ by four beasts (better translated as four living creatures), we read,   
 
Re 4:7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle

So, Christ and Satan can both be described as a lion in scripture, but Satan is the counterfeit lion. Satan comes looking just like Christ, which is one of the reasons why he is described as a lion in the same way that Christ is. And there are many Old Testament verses that both typify Christ and Satan as a lion that we will not get into for brevity, but with that being said, let's look at one last verse. We read, 

Hosea 13:5 I did know thee in the wilderness, in the land of great drought . {great ... : Heb. droughts }

Page 9

6 According to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me
7 Therefore I [God]
will be unto them as a lion: as a leopard by the way will I [God]
observe them :
8 I [God]
will meet them as a bear that is bereaved of her whelps, and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I [God] devour them like a lion: the wild beast shall tear them . {wild ... : Heb. beast of the field } 

Notice that in this verse, because God is bringing judgment on His own people, God describes Himself as all three of the same beasts - the leopard, bear, and lion - which are used to describe Satan coming against God's Church as judgment against them during the Great Tribulation from May 21, 1988 to when Judgment Day began on May 21, 2011 in our verse of study, Revelation 13:2. In fact, Hosea 13:5-8, the verses we just read, typifies God's judgment that would come upon the New Testament Israel, the Church, which we see being described in verse 2 of our study in Revelation 13. 

Now, our verse 2 of Revelation 13 ends like this: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. That is, the beast (Satan and his kingdom) that rose up out of the sea (was loosed to rise up out of the bottomless pit in which it was first bound at the cross) to bring God's judgment against all the churches and congregations worldwide beginning on May 21, 1988 according to the well-proven , Biblical Timeline of History got its power from
the dragon who we learned is the devil, Satan himself .

11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people . {stammering ... : Heb. stammerings of lip } {will ... : or, he hath spoken }
12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear
13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken

Without getting into too much detail about these verses at this time, let's just first recognize that these verses were prophesied by Isaiah, the Prophet, who prophesied God's Judgment against God's very own people both to the Northern Kingdom with its capitol being Samaria and the Southern Kingdom of Israel with its capitol being Jerusalem. The Northern Kingdom came to be known as Israel, and the Southern Kingdom became known as Judah. In the particular passage we just read, Isaiah was prophesying to the Northern Kingdom of Israel.  

Now, it is obvious that the people of God, Israel, who Isaiah prophesied to were a rebellious people, for God continuously taught these Israelites the right way they should go through the messages of His Prophets and His law, but they were a stiff-necked people who would not listen. They almost always wanted to go their own way instead the way of Yahweh. And we see this clearly stated in verse 12 where

Page 9

we read, 

12 To whom he [God]
said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not hear .  

That is, God would be teaching His people the right way to go through His Prophets and law to give rest and refreshing to them, but they would not hear and obey. As usual, they were in rebellion to God's teachings, and that is why God sent the Assyrians to destroy them and take them captive to Assyria. That is why we read, 

11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he [God]
speak to this people .  

Indeed, due to their ongoing sin of not listening to and obeying Yahweh, He brought His Judgment upon Israel by the Assyrians who were a people of a different language, and so called a people of stammering lips and another tongue. The Assyrians attacked Israel more than one time under two different kings of Assyrian, but the final blow came in 709 BC when the capitol of the Northern Kingdom, which was Samaria, was finally conquered and destroyed. Thus, Israel, God's very own people, were destroyed by the very pagan nation of Assyria, which God used as His instrument for Judgment. 

Now, it is in this context of God using the pagan nation Assyria, a people of stammering lips and another tongue that we read in Isaiah 28, 

Page 10

13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken .  

So, once again, we see the terminology of falling backward as representing or symbolizing God's Judgment. In this case, it represented God's Judgment upon the whole nation of Israel. Yes, God sent the wicked nation, Assyria, a people of stammering lips that spoke a different language, to judge His very own people by conquering and destroying them because they would not listen to and obey the true God. In the words of Isaiah, they were caused to fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken

Now, all this was picture or type for what God has done to His New Testament corporate Christian church, the New Israel. Because they would not listen to Him and obey in all too many things, He finally began His Final Judgment upon them at the end of the Church Age on May 21,1988. And, just as He had sent the king of Assyria and his nation to destroy His very own people Israel to cause them to fall backward in judgment, so on May 21,1988, God sent the king of Babylon (the king of this world) who is the perfect counterfeit Christ, the ultimate Antichrist, Satan himself, his counterfeit Christians, and his unsaved people (all parts of the beast), to bring Final Judgment against all the Christian churches, for the Final Judgment had to begin at the House of God (1 Peter 4:17). 

But one of the big differences between God's Judgment upon His Old House of Israel

and His New House of Israel is that His Judgment on His New House of Israel, all the Christian churches, is that this Judgment on all the Christian Churches is His Final Judgment against them. They will not recover from this Judgment; the Judgment is Final. Indeed, God has already spiritually destroyed them, which is why all His true people (the Elect or Saints) have already departed out or must depart out from all Christian churches unless they be destroyed right along with all those who remain in the Christian churches, the New Israel (see Why leave all churches? ).  

So, is it any wonder why we see people falling backward (a representation of God's Judgment) in Christian churches today as Satan who is of the beast makes Judgment (symbolized by fire in Revelation 13:13) come down from heaven into the churches in the sight of people? The people in the churches are being slain in the spirit and falling backward, being a sign or wonder, because God's Judgment has come upon all Christian churches (the corporate Christian Church) just as this same Judgment of falling backward was typified or symbolized in our previous study by the tribe of Dan judging his people (God's Elect or Saints who have departed out from all the Christian churches judging all those still in the Christian churches) to make them fall backward off their horse, which symbolizes the ruining of their strength in battle because eternal salvation is no more and the true Christ and Holy Spirit are no longer in the Christian churches but have been replaced by the counterfeit Christ and Holy Spirit, Satan himself, his demons and counterfeit Christians (all who make up the beast).

CONCLUSION  

We have seen in our study of Revelation 13:13 that in every case of the Bible where the notion of falling backward is mentioned, it always has to do with God's Judgment. Thus, we can say with all confidence that the language of falling backward represents or symbolizes God's Judgment.  
  
In the case of Jesus making each of the men fall backward to the ground who came to seize Him in the Garden of Gethsemane to have Him eventually be crucified revealed that God's Judgment was upon those evil men for coming to unjustly seize the Christ to put Him in chains.   
 
Then, in the case of the man renamed Israel, and his prophecy about the ancient tribe of Dan judging his people in the latter days, which was fulfilled beginning on May 21,1988 when Judgment began against all the Christian churches, and God's Elect (typified by the tribe of Dan) had begun declaring God's Judgment against all the Christian churches (also typified by the tribe of Dan) by ruining their strength in battle (typified by Dan making them fall backward off their horse in the given prophecy), once again reveals that the notion or terminology of falling backward represents God's Judgment against those who were involved in the falling backward, which in this case is all the people still in the Christian churches. They were caused to fall backward in the man Israel's prophecy because God's Judgment came upon them. 

Then, finally, in the case of our study today,

we found that God used a pagan nation, a people with stammering lips and a foreign tongue, the king of Assyria and his people, to conquer and destroy ancient Israel as His Judgment against them for not listening to and obeying His teachings through the law and the Prophets who were sent to them early, and this was said to cause God's people, Israel, to fall backward so that we see the whole notion of falling backward, once again, representing or symbolizing God's Judgment against His people, Israel, which also typified God's Judgment today against His New Israel, namely all the Christian churches, by using the counterfeit Christ, the Antichrist, the devil and his nation, Babylon (his demons, counterfeit Christians, and other unsaved people) to completely destroy them as He has already spiritually accomplished even though they have been fed a strong delusion to not see this. They have no idea that Satan and his demons are now the Christs ruling over them in great deception. It is the devil's greatest hoax, ever!   
 
So, now coming full circle back to Revelation 13:13, we read, 

13 And he [the beast]
does Great Wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men .  

Since fire can symbolize Judgment throughout the Bible, and we have found that everywhere the notion of falling backward is found in the Bible reveals that it too symbolizes Judgment, then we can substitute the term falling backward for the term fire in our verse

because both  falling backward and fire spiritually represent the same thing, namely Judgment. So now, we can translate our verse like this: 

13 And he [the beast]
does Great Wonders, so that he makes [falling backward] come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men

And, because we found in our first study of this verse that the phrase on the earth in the sight of men is better and spiritually translated, into the churches before humans, the verse reads, 

13 And he [the beast]
does Great Wonders, so that he makes [falling backward] come down from heaven into the churches before humans

So, with respect to our verse, Revelation 13:13, which mentions that the beast makes fire come down from heaven on earth before humans, and the context reveals that this takes place during the Great Tribulation, we know that this has already been fulfilled by what we continue to see take place by people being caused to fall backward in the churches. And this phenomenon of falling backward in a few of the churches reveals that God's Judgment is upon the whole corporate Christian Church (all Christian churches). It is a sign of God's wrath on the Church! And, in that this phenomenon of falling backward spread far and wide during the time that the Biblical Timeline of History

revealed that it would, during the Great Tribulation from May 21,1988 to May 21,2011, we have strong validation for the Biblical Timeline of History being quite accurate, which should make us rejoice beyond measure, for according to it, the end of all things is right at hand when God's true people who had obeyed Christ to depart out from all the Christian churches (Jerusalem) to be a captive in Babylon (in this world or kingdom of Satan) will finally return to Jerusalem, but as the new heavenly Jerusalem, in the new heaven and earth as we are given new incorruptible, eternal, and glorious bodies in the rapture into glory on the relatively soon to come Last Day of Judgment Day that we are now in. 


Now , until the next time, may Yahweh bless thee, and keep thee: Yahweh make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: Yahweh lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace (Numbers 6:24-26).
