Chapter 13: Last Two

  • The False Prophet
  • The Anti-Christ (WILD BEAST religious leader, political leader, economic leader)

See Daniel 7, for more context and clarity, sp. "the little horn" (it is "the wild beast" here)

(Revelation 13:1 )
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

  • This is the introduction of the anti-Christ, out of the ten-nation European confederation
  • Again, the sea is the population of peoples, nations on earth
  • These are ten kings, from which the beast will arise
  • He probably will have three of them removed in some nefarious way
  • The name of Rome is "The City of Seven Hills" or "The City on Seven Hills"
(Daniel 7:20 )
And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, those look was more stout than his fellows.

(Daniel 7:24 )
And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

(Revelation 13:2 )
And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

  • The bear in Daniel was the attribute of the Medea-Persians; the lion like Babylon
(Daniel 7:4-5 )
The first was like a lion, and had eagle's wings: I beheld till the wings thereof were plucked, and it was lifted up from the earth, and made stand upon the feet as a man, and a man's heart was given to it. And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear, and it raised up itself on one side, and it had three ribs in the mouth of it between the teeth of it: and they said thus unto it, Arise, devour much flesh.

(Daniel 7:17 )
These great beasts, which are four, are four kings, which shall arise out of the earth.

(Revelation 13:3 )
And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

  • False miracles to deceive the entire world, minus the saved Jews and possibly saved Gentiles, now a teeny, tiny minority
  • He has deceived via false miracles, false peace, high technology, mass media deception, blasphemy, treachery, deceit
  • A major factor is the lack of the Holy Spirit in the church, on earth, leaving the earth defenseless, spiritually, except for any possible Bibles and books on prophecy left on earth after the Rapture
  • This is " a lie" (2 Thessalonians 2), as the enemy cannot resurrect the dead, as that is only capable by Jesus Christ
(Daniel 7:23 )
Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.

(2 Thessalonians 2:7-10 )
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

(Mark 13:22 )
For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.

(Zechariah 11:17 )
Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened,

(Revelation 13:4 )
And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

  • Man has already on earth, even more today.
  • Without Christ on the earth, there literally IS none "like unto the beast"
  • To the lost, this ordinary man empowered by satan is indeed something to worship as a god.
(Revelation 13:5-6 )
And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.

  • This is the three and a half years, the one thousand two hundred and sixty days, forty and two months, all the same-the last half of the Great Tribulation, when the false peace ends and there is hell on earth....
  • Power comes from God and, in this case, accepted for him by the world
  • Daniel saw this man and his rule and his actions and people worshipping him
  • Imagine talking bad about God in Heaven, live on TV/Satellite/Internet video, calling Him names, insulting Heaven, and God's Throne.
  • People will probably pay money for a live pay-per-view!
(Daniel 7:25 )
And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

(Revelation 13:7 )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.
  • Here come the beheadings, persecutions, murders, martyrdoms of anyone who is left behind and then gets saved
  • Imagine a wicked dictator with absolute rule and authority, like Nebuchadnezzar -and not one ounce of human conscience toward anyone or anything, with no laws and nothing and no one on earth to stop him..........for now
(Revelation 13:8 )
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

  • And as evil as he is, people will worship him as a god!
  • This is the ultimate life choice-believe in Jesus or worship the beast on earth, your god
  • This is the same god of the pagans, the god of Cain, Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, the Medes, Persians, Greeks, Romans, New Agers, atheists, Hindus, Buddhists, Muslims, and all "-ites" in the Bible......only now in the flesh
(Joshua 24:15 )
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

(Revelation 13:9 )
If any man have an ear, let him hear.
  • At this point, will men have an ear to hear from God? There is no Spirit, so you are left with angels, 144,000 Jewish evangelists, Bibles and any Biblical literature left behind, now rapidly being expunged from the earth
(Revelation 13:10 )
He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

  • It must be remembered by the martyrs that there will be vengeance exacted by God on this kingdom,
  • This waiting period is "the patience of the saints"
(Revelation 6:10-11 )
And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

(Revelation 14:12 )
Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

(Revelation 13:11 )
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.

  • This is the introduction of the false prophet
  • THE UNHOLY TRINITY is complete: The dragon, the beast and the false prophet
(Revelation 13:12 )
And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

  • This is his job, to bring many like an evangelist to the anti-Christ
  • The deception of the false miracle of the deadly wound is again spoken of, as an emphasis of "proof" of the deity of the anti-Christ
(Revelation 13:13 )
And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,

  • People always want a show, as in rock concerts today with flames, light shows, etc.
  • The Jews were no exception, and Jesus pointed that out
  • Signs are very effective at deceiving people as well
  • This was something God did under Elijah, et al


(2 Thessalonians 2:9-12 )
Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.


(Matthew 12:38 )
Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:

(Matthew 16:1 )
The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven.

(Luke 11:29 )
And when the people were gathered thick together, he began to say, This is an evil generation: they seek a sign; and there shall no sign be given it, but the sign of Jonas the prophet.


(2 Chronicles 7:1 )-SOLOMON
Now when Solomon had made an end of praying, the fire came down from heaven, and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and the glory of the LORD filled the house.

Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.

Behold, there came fire down from heaven, and burnt up the two captains of the former fifties with their fifties: therefore let my life now be precious in thy sight.

(Revelation 13:14 )
And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; 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.

  • The job is to deceive many
  • The tool is the miracles
  • Since this wicked man is their god, it is appropriate that they would want to make an image of it
  • Here is the wound is a sword slash to the head


ONE THING ABOUT THE WOUND ON ONE OF THE HEADS.......... CAN AND HAS BEEN INTERPRETED AS THE ROMAN EMPIRE BEING REVIVED, NEVER DYING, but this is not literal, so it is unlikely to be that, unless it is a double fulfillment.

(Revelation 17:7-13 )
And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

(Revelation 13:15 )
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, 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.

  • Whatever this construction is, it is probably not a computer animation, since the animator/creator would be making it alive in software beforehand
(Revelation 13:16 )
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

  • This shows that no one group will be following the anti-Christ, but all on earth, no excuses
  • This is already being done with RFID chips today, in preparation to soften the ground
(Revelation 13:17 )
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

  • The best way to get absolute allegiance is to threaten the livelihood of a person
  • They are willing to do this, as it is, because they worship the beast
(Revelation 13:18 )
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

  • No one knows who this is or completely understands the number today on earth.
  • It is the number of "A MAN", not the number of mankind
