The Book of Revelation 13:7

Make War with the Saints

“And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.” (Rev 13:7 KJV)

Satan’s goal is to rule over everyone and persecute anyone that will not obey – specifically God’s people. Satan wants to rule and persecute Israel. This time he has power over all kindreds, nations, and tongues; showing that he is the world ruler. Satan will destroy those he cannot convert to follow him. He will overcome them by destroying them and converting them.

Saints refers to anyone that follows God in the tribulation period.
