The Two Beasts in Revelation 13


There are different views on the two beasts in Revelation 13. But none of them points to Emperor Constantine I and his political-religious empire and Jesus Christ and Christianity, which are, in reality, being referred in the verses.

Objectively, the identity of the two beasts was ascertained through review of history and connecting it to the verses. For example, Revelation 13:1-2 (KJV) gives us the clue on the first beast. The verses state:

13 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.

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.

Verse 1 describes the rising up of the first beast out of the sea, which is a figurative description of the origin of the first beast. This is better understood, if co-related to the description of the second beast in Revelation 13:11, where it is described to “come up out of the earth“. Obviously, sea is liquid or unsolidified or not stable. In contrast, earth or land is solid or firm. These two describe the condition of the predecessor empire, where the first and second beast emanated, respectively. Notice that the description of the predecessor of the first beast (more…)

Who is the little horn in Daniel 7:8?


Conference

The Publisher’s Conference with the PPHA Board of Directors

However, if Daniel 7 is thoroughly reviewed by relating it to history, it will show that he was actually the little horn prophesied in Daniel 7:8.

In Daniel 7:6, the third beast, which looks like a leopard, is described as having four wings and four heads, which was given authority to rule. It states:

“After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.

This part of the prophecy squarely refers to what (more…)
