Satan, The Beast and the False Prophet

Dear Compass Supporters:

Over 300K BAR Flyers have been mailed to people across the United States, so far. PTL!

We are mailing these flyers to 1 million people because we believe we're in the very end of the Church Age, living in what is called the time of God's patience.

From Matthew 24 and Luke 17, we know these times are compared to the time just before the worldwide flood of Noah and just before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Peter adds an interesting tidbit about these last days...

when the patience of God kept waiting in the days of Noah, during the construction of the ark, in which a few, that is, eight persons, were brought safely through the water. 1Pet. 3:19b

God has a schedule and the timing of our exhilarating exit is His call. We can't complain about when it will happen. We can't complain about anything! We've already won the prize!!

But we are to pay attention, to "look for," the signs of our exit. This verse is an example:

looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, Titus 2:13 

His "appearing" is a reference to the Rapture. We're not to keep our eyes down on all that's happening here on earth, but to have our eyes up to the Lord knowing He's promised to rescue us.

So we're warning people about what's to come. In our lifetime for sure, and probably much sooner than we think, things will change fast, in the twinkling of an eye. And those who support Compass are making this Before and After Rapture (BAR) warning possible. Thank you so much!

We're praying these mailings will be used by the Lord to be a wake-up call to what's dead ahead. And that one day our supporters will meet people who benefited from these mailings! 🙂

The article this week is about Satan, the Beast and the False Prophet in the Tribulation...who, what, when, where and how. Enjoy!

FYI—Next week Susie and I will be traveling to Alabama to see our newest grandson. Which means next week's Compass eNews will be short, possibly just a link or two. 1) God, 2) Family, 3) Work. 

Use us, Lord!



The prudent sees the evil and hides himself, but the naive go on, and are punished for it. Prov. 22:3

Satan, The Beast and the False Prophet

Angels are God’s created messengers.

They have intelligence (2Cor. 11:3), emotions (James 2:19) and exercise independent will (2Tim. 2:26). They are spirit beings, but even though they don’t have bodies they sometimes take on physical bodies.

Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it. Heb. 13:2

That’s quite the statement. Have you ever wondered about who in the room might not be human?

In addition to being God’s messengers, they also worship Him (Heb. 1:6), rejoice in what He does (Job 38:6-7) and are instruments in God’s judgments as we have previously seen in Rev. 7:1 and 8:2.

Angels are immortal and therefore don’t get old and die. They don’t have to study God’s Word as they have lived it. They’ve spent 6000 years observing humans, so they have a good idea of what to expect in all situations.

Lucifier was one of God’s three special Archangels. The other two are Michael and Gabriel. These Archangels had favored positions. Gabriel says that he:

stands in the presence of God, Luke 1:19

One of the more interesting Biblical accounts of an Archangel delivering a message was when Gabriel was in human form and was bringing God’s answer to Daniel’s prayer.

On the way to Daniel, Gabe got into a three-week fight with the demon Prince of Persia. Apparently the dark side didn't want anyone to know the answer to this prophecy about the last days.

Now I have come to give you an understanding of what will happen to your people in the latter days, Dan. 10:14a

Michael had to come help out Gabe and they finally delivered God’s message to Daniel. The entire account is in Daniel Chapter 10.

So this tells us that Satan loathes us learning last-days Bible prophecies. He doesn’t want God’s peeps to figure out they have great hope for the future. Satan wants us fearful and afraid of the future.

On a side note, it’s interesting that one of the characteristics of the famous Proverbs 31 woman is that she is pointedly not fearful.

She is not afraid … Prov. 31:21a

Lucifer (whose name means the “light bearer”) is, of course, the angel who revolted.

You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created until unrighteousness was found in you. Ezek. 28:15

We call him Satan or the devil. His sin was rooted in “pride” of his beauty and wisdom.

Your heart was lifted up because of your beauty; You corrupted your wisdom by reason of your splendor. Ezek. 28:17

Most of what we know about Lucifer from scripture directly contrasts the characteristics of our Creator God.

God is love, Satan is evil.

God is all truth, Satan is a liar.

God wants healing, Satan wants sickness, etc.

Any problems we have in our lives can all be traced back to “Lucy.” He lied to Eve in the Garden of Eden and has been lying ever since.

He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. John 8:44b

In light of all that's going on today, don't miss the fact that Satan's first named characteristic is murder.

So it’s not surprising that just like we see in scripture the Holy Trinity of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, in the Tribulation we also see a false trinity—Satan, the Beast, and the False Prophet.

Father  —  Satan
Jesus —  Beast/Antichrist
Holy Spirit — False Prophet

Jesus received His power from the Father.

Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to accomplish His work.” John 4:34

The beast/dragon/anti-Christ receives his power from Satan.

And the dragon gave him (the beast) his power and his throne and great authority. Rev. 13:2b

Just as Jesus had 3 1/2 years on the earth to glorify God, heal people, and do good things, Satan will have 3 1/2 years on earth to glorify Satan, make people sick, and do horrible things.

A Satanically possessed world leader will dominate the first 3 1/2 years of the 7-year Tribulation, conquering nations with nuclear weapons (Rev. 6:4c), drugs (Rev. 6:2), economic collapse via inflation (Rev. 6:5), and with food rationing via famine (Rev. 6:6, 8).

At the mid-point of the Tribulation, after half the population of earth has already died (Rev 6:8; 9:18), the world leader will appear to die from a head wound.

I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, Rev. 13:3a

What happens is that the world leader lies dead for three days on a street in Jerusalem. At that time, Satan is banished from his heavenly realm and is cast to the earth.

Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time. Rev 12:12b

Satan is a spirit and needs a body. So he indwells the 3-day-old dead corpse of the world leader, bringing it back to life. He claims he is the risen Messiah and demands to be worshiped.

and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast; Rev. 13:3b

The Jews, having been taught in both the Old and New Testaments for 3 1/2 years by the 144,000 Jewish evangelists, won't buy the Messiah claim. Then a major prophesied event happens.

Satan, occupying the body of the slain world leader, breaks the 7-year peace treaty by standing in the Holy of Holies in the rebuilt Jewish Temple, demanding the sacrifices be stopped.

And he will make a firm covenant with the many for one week [7 years], but in the middle of the week [3 1/2 years] he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering; Dan. 9:27

Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. Matt. 24:15-16

Those Jews who have been studying the New Testament know that when they see the Temple desecrated by Satan, they have only moments to flee town or die. Many immediately run with only the clothes on their backs.

Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house. Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak. For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. Matt. 24:15-21

It’s a massive massacre of the Jewish race at the hands of Satan.

That two parts in it will be cut off and perish; But the third will be left in it. Zech. 13:8

Two thirds of the Jews die in one day—roughly 7 million. IN ONE DAY! Those that get out of town early and survive end up at Petra, Jordan, protected by God for 3 1/2 years.

We know they are protected in Petra because at the end of the Tribulation they’re in Bozrah (Is. 63:1). And Petra is a quite-rocky place that has zero green vegetation and is located in the middle of Bozrah.

Enter the rock and hide in the dust… Is. 2:10

Men will go into caves of the rocks and into holes of the ground… Is. 2:19

Satan then continues the death and destruction of the planet while God pummels the earth with His 7 Bowls of divine judgment. It’s hard to imagine what that would be like.

The carnage ends when Jesus returns. He first stops in Petra and wipes out Satan’s world armies who are marching from the Valley of Armageddon to wipe out the Jews.

Jesus defeats Satan; it’s not really a battle. The Antichrist/Beast and the False Prophet are cast immediately into the Lake of Fire.

And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth and their armies assembled to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. And the beast was seized, and with him the false prophet who performed the signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image; these two were thrown alive into the lake of fire which burns with brimstone. Rev. 19:19-20

Then Satan is bound for 1000 years in the abyss, not the lake of fire. God still has one more thing to use him for, so he’s not yet sent into the lake of fire because it's a one-way ticket.

Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding the key of the abyss and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold of the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he threw him into the abyss, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he would not deceive the nations any longer, Rev. 20:1-3

From there Jesus goes to the Mount of Olives just outside the Old City of Jerusalem. His feet touch down at the same place He left from on the Mount of Olives 2000 years ago.

They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.” Acts 1:11

Jesus’ arrival on the Mount of Olives sets in motion an amazing chain of events. The Mount of Olives, no small mountain, splits north and south creating a large valley.

In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south. Zech. 14:4

This incredible division of the Mount of Olives sets off a worldwide earthquake so strong that all the mountains around the world are flattened and the islands sink in the seas.

And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty…And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. Rev. 16:18, 20

Mount Moriah is then raised up to be the highest mountain.

Now it will come about that in the last days the mountain of the house of the LORD will be established as the chief of the mountains, and will be raised above the hills; Is. 2:2

It’s from this raised mountain that the Lord will rule and reign over the earth for 1000 years. The valley formed from the Mount of Olives splitting will be called the Valley of Jehoshaphat. It’s there where Jesus will judge the nations, the Judgment of the Sheep and Goats.

I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; And they have divided up My land. Joel 3:2

It’s very interesting that one of the issues Jesus will judge at that time is that God’s land had been divided.

But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; Matt. 25:31-32

Satan is allowed one last stand at the end of the 1000 years, to filter out the dross one more time. 1000 years is a long time and apparently earthlings will forget all that was learned in the Tribulation.

And, of course, we know Satan will have had 1000 years to think about new lies to deceive people when he’s released. Since people in the Millennium will continue to be born with the sin nature, it will be duck soup for Satan to once again deceive the nations of the world.

When the thousand years are completed, Satan will be released from his prison, and will come out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together for the war; the number of them is like the sand of the seashore. And they came up on the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city [Jerusalem], and fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Rev. 20:7-10

So Satan is sent to the Lake of Fire to join the Antichrist/Beast and the False Prophet. Of course Satan won’t be able to see them in the dark. But he’ll probably be able to hear them wail.

Can you imagine an eternity of flames with no hope of escape? And it all started with Lucy wanting to be god, not worshiping the God who created him.

I think it’s fascinating that Satan can read these scriptures for himself. He knows what his ultimate fate will be. His evil runs so deep he wants to take as many humans with him as possible into those eternal flames.

Satan knows his time is short and his fate is sealed. We look for our wonderful rescue, but he can only see his doom. That’s what we’re up against between now and the Rapture.

We, thankfully, are comforted because our future is secure. TYJ!



I feel sorry for anyone trying to understand what's going on in the world today without having the Bible as a guide! But we know Who is really in control, and all things work together for us Believers. The links below are to help us be wise and aware as we live and make decisions living in the concluding moments of the Church Age. Use us, Lord! BP

Financial Incentives to Kill Kids

5-minute video


Unreal. Shocking. Makes me furious. No wonder God is so mad at the United States…between the tens of millions of baby in the womb murders and the maiming and killing of little kids, I’m surprised we still have a country. Again, only thanks to the patience of God.
Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”Mt. 19:14

This guy, a Catholic, has a great grasp of his God-outlined priorities in life. He honors his wife as a well-satisfied stay-at-home mom and it is driving the libs nuts. Few people, even Believers, understand his stance. I suspect he's a Believer and if so, God will greatly reward him on judgment day!

Satan's Top 10 Lies - Lie #2 A Job or Career in the Workforce is Far More Rewarding than being a Stay-at-Home Mom - Bill Perkins

Europe is one of the latest to release a central bank digital currency and along with it, new cash rules. Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank, shared "Now we have in Europe this threshold, above 1,000 euros you cannot pay cash… if you get caught you are fined or you are going to jail". 

Europe Moving To Universal Income



Universal basic income is a social welfare system in which the government provides every citizen with a standard minimum income. These payments are unconditional and transferred to citizens on a regular basis without any pre-qualification. The concept is in keeping with the Marxist ideal of wealth redistribution.

Donald Trump Also Holds A Rally:

I could be wrong...but

The sad thing is, and this is just my opinion, President Trump will not be in the White House this coming January. If I understand correctly what's going on in the world, both Biblically and by simple observations, the bad guys will never let it happen.

My reasoning is simple. Last time they stopped the voting in the middle of the night and just added whatever votes to the total that they needed to win. And if anyone questioned the results they were arrested. What's to keep them from doing that again?

There are well over a million deaths worldwide from a certain shot that are being covered up. I think the deaths are on purpose. And they are continuing to rise. So if they're willing to murder millions, I don't believe they will let President Trump back in to clean things up. I sure hope I'm wrong!!

It's more likely the Rapture will happen than Trump being in office. They have something up their sleeve. The decisions our government is making tell me they are not worried in the least about losing an election. It will get dicey between now and the Rapture, whenever that happens. Could be days, months or years away. But we're watching the world get set up for the event.

Drugstores Paid To Be Pushers



A “cartel” led by the U.S. government allegedly bribed large pharmacy chains like Walgreens and CVS with billions of dollars in contracts to promote COVID-19 vaccines and not fill prescriptions for ivermectin. The depth of the Covid ruse runs deeper than most people can comprehend.

We have a family member that thinks we're nuts to think our own government would try to kill its own citizens, for any reason. Oh well. Here's another "They're Literally Trying To Kill Us" link:

Deadly Drug Combo Used to Treat Elderly COVID Patients in Scotland



"The elderly were administered an end-of-life protocol when they were still active and only mildly ill. They all subsequently died."

There was also a Japanese study presented by Dr. Bridle that basically said the same thing, but it's been taken down off the web... wonder why?

A Digital ID Tracking System Is Being Set Up—To Fight "Climate Change"

Sasha is from Ukraine with a Big Pharma background and always has incredible insight into what the bad guys are doing via drugs.

"It's systematic poisoning. They need to create children with cancer and autism because billion dollar industries depend on it."

Remember, God will destroy America "because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery (drugs)." Rev. 18:23


Hmmmm.... can you spot the trend?


Debunking Pre-Trib/Pre-Mill Lies

When the Disciples came to Jesus on the Mt of Olives asking when the time of the end would be, the first thing He said was, “See to it that no one misleads you." Matt. 24:4  So Jesus was warning that deceivers, wolves in sheep's clothing will be teaching false doctrines.
Bottom line, when studying Bible prophecy, use a literal translation of the Bible when ever possible. All past prophecies have been fulfilled WORD FOR WORD.
If God says that Jesus will reign as King of the Earth for 1000 years, especially if He says it 6 times in 6 straight verses (Rev. 20:2-7), you can rest assured that's what He means!

Banning Christian Symbols In Europe


The mayor of Warsaw Rafa Trzaskowski has banned the display of religious symbols such as crosses in public buildings, making it the first city in Poland to do so.
This is just the beginning. No telling how far this goes before the Rapture.

Mexico Calls For A EU Style North American Union

The United States, Mexico, and Canada should be united under a European Union-style transnational government, declared far-left Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador last month in barely noticed comments. The controversial remarks come as regional governments modeled on the EU proliferate and absorb once-sovereign nations around the world.
Some of y'all might remember back in 2007, Alan Franklin (he graduated to heaven about 5 years ago) spoke at a Steeling Conference with the title: The North American Union - Did We Vote On This? You can download the presentation for free HERE
Just by reading the title of that Steeling presentation in 2007 you can see how naive we were about what was going on in the world around us!

What To Ask Your Doc Before Taking His/Her Advice

By Peter McCullough

Tips to probe on the trust issue with doctors and nurses:

  1. How many COVID-19 vaccines they personally take and why they stopped?
  2. Do they still recommend boosters now? Why?
  3. Did they treat ambulatory COVID-19 in 2020 and beyond? Why not?
  4. Do they have any remorse with an apology to offer?

If you are stonewalled on these four, or if worse, if you are pressed with the relentless narrative from the Bio-Pharmaceutical Complex, the Art of War would say to find new allies to be at your side as we gear up for the next battle.

Can you spot the trends? Something is going to happen with our monetary system. And some are privy to inside information. All the rest of us only know that China is massively cashing out of US dollars for gold and gold mines.
Regardless of the price today, if someone offered you $10,000 in paper or gold, and you had to wait a year before you could use it, which would you choose?

It Takes 177K For A Family Of Four To Live

May 27 World Power Grab

This will be really interesting to see how this plays out...

A massive power grab is about to take place on or around Monday, May 27th. It's currently being presented as a “pandemic treaty” accord/agreement or other flowery language. It's nothing more than a global totalitarian takeover.

If successful, we can say goodbye to personal decisions in any and all situations because the W.H.O. is your new government. And they will make all their decisions based on their idea of what is best for “global health.”

From PNW:

Adopting the "One Health" approach will affect multiple aspects of everyday life, from agriculture and farming to livestock and food production to environmental issues.

.The "One Health" agenda is designed to globally declare possible pandemic-type risks, which will naturally lead to forced lockdowns and restrictions placed upon the private sector.

The solution will be more mass vaccinations and, for the safety of the general public, more types of surveillance on private citizens.

Digitally Marking Humans Has Begun

Leo Hohmann

The process of digitally marking every human is well underway but how many humans are even aware?

Mega-bank JP Morgan gearing up to launch broad biometric payment system that will be made available to all retailers.

Mega-bank JPMorgan Chase is planning to rollout a biometric payment system and make it available to all U.S. retailers by early next year. This will enable shoppers to make purchases without pulling physical paper (fiat currency) or plastic (credit/debit cards) out of their wallets. All they will need to do is submit to having their palms or faces scanned upon entry into a retail store.

David Birch, an advisor and commentator on global digital financial services., penned an article for Forbes last month that should be a wake-up call for anyone familiar with Bible prophecies regarding an end-times beast system that forbids anyone to buy or sell without being “marked” by some sort of tracking technology.  (See Rev. 13)

In the article, Birch quotes JP Morgan’s executive director of biometrics and identity solutions, Prashant Sharma, as saying, “We would like every merchant to adopt this, but at the end of the day, it is going to be a merchant’s choice.”

Birch then goes on to explain why almost all merchants will end up choosing to go down this dystopian route and adopt the technology. Shoppers at some point may actually demand it, for the “convenience” of getting them in and out of the store faster.

Of course....

Norway, Spain, Ireland to Recognize Palestinian Statehood

The formal recognition will take place on May 28, according to Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Store.

“In the midst of a war, with tens of thousands killed and injured, we must keep alive the only alternative that offers a political solution for Israelis and Palestinians alike: Two states, living side by side, in peace and security,” Mr. Store said in a statement.

Irish Prime Minister Simon Harris said he expected other countries to follow suit in recognizing a Palestinian state.

“Ireland’s dream is that the Israeli and Palestinian children of May 28th, 2024, will grow up to be neighbors at peace,” he said in a statement. “We want to thank and are honored to recognize Palestine at the same time as our friends in Spain and Norway. We are hopeful others will do the same in the next wave.”

The Irish government also called for the unconditional release of hostages held by Hamas and “full, safe and unhindered” humanitarian access to Gaza.
