Women in the Bible symbolize the Church, either pure or corrupt. The Scarlet Beast of Revelation 17 is ridden (controlled) by a Harlot, showing that at the end of time the corrupt international Church will control the state to persecute God’s people

The Battle of Armageddon is the last attempt of Satan to destroy the Children of God on Earth before the Second Coming of Christ. Satan (the Dragon) and his agents, the Beast from the Bottomless Pit and the False Prophet, will gather world leaders (kings of the earth) but they will be destroyed when Christ returns
The False Prophet is one of the leaders of the final Babylon who will organize the Battle of Armageddon. He is with the apostate American Church (Beast from the Earth) and works deceptive miracles.

No one likes for his behavior to be judged, because we have all experienced unfair judgment based on inadequate information, selfishness or malevolence. But because God is Love and He is our Creator, He not only has the right to judge us according to His law, but will always judge us righteously.
If we tried to understand what God wants from people according to the way people worship Him in the various denominations we get a very confusing picture of a capricious and arbitrary God. But the Bible reveals that what God really wants is for people to love Him and the other creatures He has made.
The Bible teaches that Evil Spirits are real. They are angels who sinned and were cast out of Heaven with Satan. Although they cause a lot of destruction, Jesus gave His followers authority over them and do not need to be afraid of them.

According to the Apostle Paul, all believers are saints. There is nothing in the Bible that indicates that we should worship or pray to holy people who have died. Worship is to be directed only to the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
You can become a Christian if you believe what God says about you and what He has done for you. He says that you have sinned, and your sin disqualifies you to live in the good universe that He will create. But Jesus died for your sins, and if you believe Him and ask Him to direct your life you become a Christian.
A Christian is a follower of Jesus Christ. There is one God, the Father, the Son (Jesus) and the Holy Spirit. Everyone has committed sin, and the penalty for sin is death, but whoever believes that Jesus died for his sins, and commits himself to following Jesus, is granted eternal life.
Nearly every religion teaches that there is life after death, and most Christian denominations teach that when we die the Soul continues to live, either in Heaven or in Hell.

God created a perfect universe. Although He didn’t plan for sin, He made provision for it if it would arise and took responsibility for it even at infinite cost to Himself. Satan is the originator or sin.
The Bible uses the word “law” in many ways, but it is clear that God intends that Christians shall keep the law of the 10 commandments. We are saved by faith in Christ, but the law has the important role of condemning sin.
