Revelation 13:14-15

Revelation 13:14: “...saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the BEAST, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”

Revelation 13:15: “And he” [The False Prophet] “had power to give life unto the image of the beast,” [Idolatry] “that the image of the beast should BOTH speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” “BOTH” is referring to the ability of the image of the beast to speak, and kill those who do not worship it. The 144,000/Servants of God will not worship the image of the Beast; they will be killed during this time period.
