Mankind is split between those who follow the Lamb and those who render homage to the “beast.”
In Revelation, humanity is comprised of two opposing groups: The men who are “tabernacling in heaven” and the “inhabitants of the earth.” The descriptions are NOT geographical and reflect the allegiance of either group.
