With basic concepts in place, we can now understand almost every word in Revelation 13. Satanic Control of God’s FootstoolRevelation 13:110 “And I stood upon the sand of the sea, andsaw a beast (empire) rise up out of the sea (of people, Rev17:15), having seven heads and ten horns (The Holy Land iscentral in Bible prophecy so this beast is the various nationsthat controlled the Holy Land during the Christian era), andupon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name ofblasphemy. And the beast which I saw was like unto aleopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear , and hismouth as the mouth of a lion (Greece, MedoPersia, Babylonor today’s Syria, Iran, Iraq, i.e., the Islamic hegemony): andthe dragon (Satan) gave him his power, and his seat, andgreat authority. And I saw one of his heads as it were
Revelation 13:1‐10 continued . . . wounded unto death (at the Battles of Tours and Vienna); and his deadly wound was healed (after 19481967 the new Jihad begins): and all the world (the nations surrounding Israel) wondered after the beast. And they worshipped the dragon (Satan) which gave power unto the (Islamic) beast: and they worshipped the (Islamic ) beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies (against God who created the Universe); and power was given unto him to continue (controlling the Holy Land) forty and two months (of dayyears, from 688 to 1967). And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name (saying God has no Son), and his tabernacle (the temple mount), and them that dwell in heaven.” (All believers are now spiritually seated in the heavens with Christ, Ephesians 1:3)
Revelation 13:1‐10 continued . . . Revelation 13:610 “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (the 1st Jihad), and to overcome them (from India to Spain): and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him (about the world as known to John, Israel and the surrounding nations of the Middle East), whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. If any man have an ear, let him hear. 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.”
Revelation Thirteen is primarily about the 1278.34 years Islam controlled Jerusalem. But within that account is a little prophecy about a “Two-horned Beast” who would be in Islam’s presence during that time.
But This Lamb Does!Revelation 13:1114 “And I beheld another beast coming up outof the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb (Greek: •kνιον,arnion, a little lambkin), and he spake as a dragon. And heexerciseth all the power of the first beast (LBL) before him(Greek, gνώπιον, enopion, “in the sight of” or “in the presence of”),and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worshipthe first beast (LBL), whose deadly wound was healed (thepresent Islamic Jihad). And he (Two Horns) doeth great wonders,so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth inthe sight of men,** And (Two Horns) deceiveth them that dwellon the earth by the means of those miracles (modern science)which he had power to do in the sight of the (LBL) beast; sayingto them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image(a likeness) to the (Islamic) beast, which had the wound by asword, and did live.”** The Gulf Wars bombing campaigns exactly fulfill this prophecy.
The Number of the BeastRevelation 13:1518 “And he [TwoHorns] had power to givelife unto the image of the [LeopardBearLion] beast, that theimage [today’s revitalized Islam] of the [Islamic] beast shouldboth speak, and cause that as many as would not worship theimage of the [revitalized] beast should be killed [which isindeed the fate of those turning to Jesus in Islamic lands]. Andhe [the LeopardBearLion] causeth all, both small and great,rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their righthand, or in their foreheads [showing allegiance]: And that noman might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or thename of the [Islamic] beast, or the number of his name. Hereis wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count thenumber of the [Islamic] beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” So what man has the number 666?
From Revelation 13, this beast is the LeopardBearLion, the Islamic Empire in the Middle East. Revelation 14: 912 “And the third angel followed them, sayingwith a loud voice, If any man worship the (Islamic) beast andhis image (The new Jihad or possibly the Kaaba Stone), andreceive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,** The sameshall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is pouredout without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and heshall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presenceof the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And thesmoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: andthey have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast andhis image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” ** In our minds we think evil thoughts and with our hands we do them.
Revelation 16:13 “And I saw coming out of the mouth ofthe dragon (Satan), and out of the mouth of the (LBL)beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet(Muhammad), three unclean spirits (The spirits ofBabylon, MedoPersia and Greece, two of which arementioned in Daniel 10:13, 20), as it were frogs: forthey are spirits of demons, working signs; which goforth unto the kings of the whole world, to gatherthem together unto the (spiritual) war of the greatday of God, the Almighty.”
Revelation 19:20 “And I saw the (Scarlet) beast, and thekings of the earth, and their armies, gathered togetherto make war against him that sat upon the horse, andagainst his army. And the (LeopardBearLion) beastwas taken, and with him the false prophet(Muhammad) that wrought the signs in his sight,wherewith he deceived them that had received themark of the beast and them that worshipped hisimage: they two were cast alive into the lake of firethat burneth with brimstone.”
Revelation 20:10 “And the devil (the red dragon and the scarlet beast) that deceived themwas cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where are also the beast (the Islamic empire) and the false prophet; (Muhammad)and they shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
