No one should mistake the Beast, for when he does appear
These major points he will fulfill, the Bible makes it clear.
The ABYSS will be opened - and from its dungeon depth
The angel king is wakened - where he for ages slept.
With demon hosts he will ascend, like diabolic smoke
To blaspheme God and govern - earth's disbelieving folk.
In God's Temple he will sit, and the world will bow the knee
To its deluded hosts he'll say, "There is no God but me!"
Great wonders will his hand perform; the world will stand aghast.
And yet his reign is very short, and cometh very fast
Two and forty months 'twill be, the prophecy is true
All the world will worship him, except God's chosen few.
Then the armies of the universe, will join in holy war.
And Christ will win the victory, for God's eternal law.
Gazed upon by Heaven's host, the Beast will then be cast
Into a lake of blazing fire, to breath his very last!
