“The Last Prophecy” was the abridged version authorized by E. B. Elliot himself. The editors of this revised version humbly admit the primary credit to E. B. Elliot and those who went before us in this great work. With great trepidation we have sought to bring up to date the last several chapters hereof with the same method of which we hope Mr. Elliot would approve were he present. You will come away with a fresh and very compelling view of the Book of Revelation and an overview of the greater work from which the text is derived. “Horae Apocalypticae” (Hours with the Apocalypse) is doubtless the most elaborate work ever produced on the Apocalypse. Without an equal in exhaustive research in its field, it was occasioned by the futurist attack on the Historical School of interpretation. Begun in 1837, its 2,500 pages are buttressed by some 10,000 invaluable references to ancient and modern works.

The Spirits Organizing The Wicked for the Final Battle.
A.D. 1830 – Consummation. Updated 2015
Rev. 16:13-14 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. (14) For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
The dragon being representative of that old serpent and the devil, in this spirit we look for the continued and pervasive influence of religious pagan idolatry rising in the world at large and even gaining influence in the visible church. We also anticipate the final rise of persecution and wave of martyrdom again emanating also from the visible church directed at the true Bible believing elect of God as in the Inquisitions of the past.
The beast which also gets its power from the Dragon, we recognize as the Roman Empire which morphs through history from the solid legs of iron in the Daniel chapter two image to the feet and ten toes mingled with clay when it is struck by the stone cut out without hands and desolated so that no place is found for it any more. We recognize this desolation as the same event described in Revelation as the fall of Mystery Babylon. The spirit coming from the mouth of this beast will result in the idolatry of State-ism as those who bowed before the Mystery Babylon Image of Nebuchadnezzar and a combination of Church-State-ism as practiced by the Temporal Reign of the biblical and historical Anti-Christ.
The false prophet from the G5578 is everywhere else in the bible translated as plural (false prophets), only in the Revelation is it translated singular. Here it may be taken as plural (they are the spirits of devils) and should be even if in any instance it may refer to a singular individual, as should the man of god, or even the man of sin may refer to a singular Pope or the whole line. The Spirit of Prophecy being described as the testimony of Jesus, the false prophet or spirit of false prophecy, would refer the the abundance of false gospels and the inundation of false prophecy and interpretation to deceive even the elect (if it were possible) as disseminated by this evil spirit in the final epoch leading up to the return of our Lord.
