In Chapter 5 we discussed “The Timing of Satan’s Appearance” and provided scriptural documentation as to when we might expect to see Satan cast from Heaven to earth. In Chapter 6 we are going to discuss “The Hour of Temptation” which is the portion of time Satan will be on earth, from the time he is cast from Heaven until the Return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As we will learn, Satan will be on earth for the entire Tribulation and we will uncover the length of the Tribulation as well.
After reading the previous five Chapters of this Bible study we should have a good understanding of “The Beast with Seven Heads” and understand who those heads were and are today. We should also understand we are still awaiting the conflict between the Ram and the He Goat and when the final horn of the Goat is broken that will be the moment in time when we witness the rise of the Ten Clay Kings. As we have learned, this does not mark the beginning of the Tribulation, not until we witness the Deadly Wound which involves three of the Ten Clay Kings.
