With everything talked about in this chapter a person has to be open to talking about an internal presence that is not of ourselves. The Bible already says that our body is the temple of God and that the one who governs by the mark of the beast sits in the temple of God as if it is God. “ Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16 and speaking of the beast “It opposes and exalts itself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that it sits in the temple of God, showing itself that it is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:4 It is the thing that has control of thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and every cellular aspect of the human body, and it gives life to the image of the beast.
Global Presence and Blasphemous
“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.”
The seven heads relate to the seven continents and the ten kingdoms relate to the ten major powers around the world. This means that the presence of the beast is global. For example, every continent has a dominant power, and some continents are large enough to have two major powers. For example, Asia has Russia and China whereas North America has the United States. Nowadays, there is global blaspheme and mockery of God, the need for Jesus Christ is discarded, and the Holy Spirit is trampled on. Every nation around the world is conforming to the global government of the beast. Even the United States is obviously no longer a nation that honors the teachings of the Bible. The beast rises up from the sea, and the sea represents the population of people on all seven continents and in every nation. It’s obvious that people in every city around the world are rioting and protesting for one purpose, to usher in the global “democracy” of the beast. Cultures, laws, and constitutions are changing around the world due to the social upheaval caused by the demands to change. They are pushing to establish one constitution that regulates every nation.
I would also add that the beast mentioned in the verse above is the first beast of Satan’s trinity, and the second best is mentioned in Revelation 13:11. Satan attempts to mimic everything that God does, including the trinity. For example, Satan is the father, and the first beast is his son. The second beast is the spirit that gives life to the image of the beast (Revelation 13:15) and demands that everyone serves the son. In the same way that Jesus lives in our soul by the Holy Spirit, the beast lives in people through the thing that is able to form thoughts, emotions, and feelings.
While the beast is rising from the sea to establish the global government of the beast, the people of God are standing on the sands of the sea. This is another way of saying the broad way leads to destruction and the narrow way leads to life. If someone decided to plant a beautiful garden on the sands of the sea it wouldn’t grow well, and today, there is not much growing regarding the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The sea of people is hostile to the lush crops that grow in the name of God, through Jesus Christ who causes the Holy Spirit to blossom. They want to turn the testimony of Christ to sands, and they have dominated the churches in the process. The churches no longer preach and teach the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus, and have thrown out the need for the forgiveness of sin and do not believe in eternal life. The beast has set itself up as God in the temple of God, which includes our body, the temple of God. When a person’s thoughts and emotions become like sand to the seed of the Gospel of Christ, then the beast comes in to establish people as the seat of government for the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors it forms in us.
Blasphemy against God is on every continent in every country around the world. The lyrics to John Lennon’s song “Imagine” summarizes the blasphemy, and it is a common song sung around the world. God created our body to be the home of the Holy Spirit, and to use our mind and heart to house the beast is blasphemy, “It opposes and exalts itself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that it sits in the temple of God, showing itself that it is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:4 It is blasphemy to kick the Holy Spirit out of the temple of God, our mind and heart. It is blasphemy to discard the need for the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and it is blasphemy to claim to have dominance over the Creator. It is blasphemy to honor people as their own version of god, and blasphemy to make people more important than God. It is blasphemy to sing worship songs in the churches that ignores the name of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Obviously, they are not singing songs of worship to the God of Jesus Christ. It is blasphemy to try to build a global “democracy,” when God has said the only way to the New Jerusalem is through Jesus Christ. And the New Jerusalem is not a place on this earth, it is in the new heaven and new earth. The prayers of those who serve Jesus Christ are mocked as they are publicly and maliciously voiced by those living through the mark of the beast. It is blasphemy.
Empowerment and Authority
Words that describe the first beast in the first two verses are global, power, great authority and blasphemy. That is the beast mentioned in this verse.
“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 beast mentioned in the above scripture rises up through the global sea and is responsible for causing the sands of Spiritual infertility. It makes war against God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the people of God. Satan gives the beast its power, great authority, and seat of government. Satan is imitating God who has given Jesus Christ power, great authority, and His seat of government. The difference is that the power of Satan and his beast is earthbound, which explains the focus on money, possessions, physical comforts, and the global government. The power of God and His Son Jesus Christ focuses on the rewards of the Holy Spirit and the eternal inheritance to come in the New Jerusalem. Those who follow the beast are exactly comparable to how the followers of Jesus follow Him. They offer their body, mind, and heart to the will of the beast. In the same way that the followers of Jesus Christ have power and authority through Him, those who follow the beast are endowed with power and authority through the beast.
The picture below is the picture of the fierce beast that is in every city and on every continent around the world and in every country. We might be thinking of the symbolism of seven heads, but there is one beast for each of the seven continents, which is the same beast. It’s like Jesus Christ being on all seven continents but is only One. The pictures below are a leopard, bear’s feet, and a mouth of a lion. The unrest, protests, violence, and global battles of the world come from this beast. It is working through the sea of the global population to dominate the world to usher in the global government of the beast. That beast is behind the tribulation that is global and on all seven continents which causes much destruction, carnage, and persecution to the Lamb of God and His people. Those who live and govern for the government of the beast are vicious predators against those who violate their territory or interfere with their social network. They despise the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
If a person ever gets tempted to snuggle up to the furry creatures, because they disguise themselves as being very approachable, just remember that they are predators, and their prey is decent human beings who embrace the Spirit of Christ. Everyone knows about wolves in sheep’s clothing, this is a beast in human clothing. Its only purpose is to steal, kill and destroy anything to do with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The beast lives inside the masses around the world, and they are in every managerial position imaginable, including local, state, national, and global government.
Possesses Power Over Physiology
“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.”
Satan wants to imitate everything that God has done, including having the power over life and death and to have the power to heal. The global population follows the beast because they are mesmerized by its ability to heal and its power over life and death. It has the ability to reach deep into physiology, on every cellular level, and to do miracles. It is able to maneuver within thoughts, emotions, feelings, muscle movements, and the whole of human physiology.
Today, in this year 2022, everyone I know is familiar with healings. They talk about healings from addictions, physical healings from pain, miraculous healings from cancer, mental healings, emotional healings, amazing recuperation from severe accidents, and the list goes on and on. It is a global occurrence as people around the world are talking about it on social media platforms, webpages, and all over the internet. At the same time, they blaspheme God, discard the need for Jesus Christ, and trample on the Holy Spirit. The power the beast has over physiology overrides natural processes and even overrides genetic factors. It taunts its power over life and death by making a public show of the ability to make clones, and even to resurrect life from a cell of an animal that had been dead for years and years. People even talk about witnessing animals coming back to life after they thought they were laying lifeless. It also relates to the ability to “cheat” death in the like of cats who have the proverbial “nine lives.”
The power the beast has over physiology reaches deep into our being on every level. It is the source that endows a person with uncanny knowledge, extraordinary skills and talents, amazing physical abilities and achievements, endows with physical comforts, brings sensual pleasure, gives power and authority, etc. It easily solves Rubic cubes, solves the most complicated mathematical formula, enhances the ability of a chef, etc. It enhances a person’s ability to succeed in life. Those who live for the beast are the ones managing employees, governing in politics, running agencies, have the “say-so” around the house, etc. It is also able to keep a person bathed in youthfulness, health, and joyfulness. It is the foundation on which the global “democracy” is built. Those who live for Jesus Christ are not included in the managerial/overseer structure of their social network.
Over 2000 years ago, God raised Jesus from the dead after three days, gave Him a new body, and brought Him into eternal paradise. Because He lives, we will live also. We will be resurrected from the dead and receive an eternal body. God wants us to believe in our heart and say with our mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord.
“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?”
The people have made the beast their God within their hearts and minds, and while they haven’t a clue that they are worshipping Satan, that is exactly what they are doing. They have allowed the beast to exalt itself within their words and behaviors, “It opposes and exalts itself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that it sits in the temple of God, showing itself that it is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:4
Worshipping the dragon (Satan) who gave power to the beast is similar to worshipping God who gave power to Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ showed publicly His power to heal and the authority He had over death, and many people worshipped God because of Him. In Revelation 13:3, Satan showed publicly his power to heal and authority he had over death, and because of that the masses worship Satan who gave power to the beast. The people who follow the beast praise it the same way that the followers of Jesus Christ praise Him. All around the seven continents and in every country, the followers of the beast are heard boasting, “Who is like the beast, who is able to make war with it?” Within their emotions and thoughts, they are made to feel invincible as they follow the beast. That is seen in their aggression during riots and protests when they make demands of powerful governments, even willing to be martyrs, to change laws and constitutions. While the list is too long to mention, in just this one week, their aggressive boldness against authority is seen in Iran, Russia, South America, Israel, etc.
Those who praise the beast for all of its amazing signs and power detest criticism or opposition of any type, whether from siblings, co-workers, parents, managers, or government officials. They feel that no one is able to stand against them. They are the same ones who demand that other people serve the beast in the quest to transform this world into the government of the beast.
There’s another answer to the question, “Who is like the beast, who can make war with it?” Jesus Christ is able to make war with it, has already made war with it, and has defeated it. That is what Christ’s death on the Cross is all about. By conquering sin, Satan is defeated, his beasts are defeated, and the mark of the beast is destroyed. Anyone who comes to God through the Cross of Jesus Christ has their sin washed away in the eyes of God. The power of God over death and Satan was seen in the resurrection of Christ. Anyone who believes in the resurrection power and says that Jesus Christ is Lord will also be resurrected to live eternally with Him. Those who overcomes the mark of the beast will have eternal life in the New Jerusalem.
Boastful and Blasphemous
“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.”
The beast rules on this earth for “42 months,” which is “1260 days.” It rules until the collapse of this current global government, which is when the mark of the beast is destroyed. Jesus Christ personally destroys the first beast, and the second beast (also called the false prophet) which are behind the mark. The destruction of the beast and the second beast is written about in the Revelation 19:20. The destruction of the global government is written about in the Revelation chapters 18 and 19. Today, we are within those “42 months” of the return of Jesus Christ because the beast is in this world. It came into existence immediately after WW2 when the New World Order was formed. That is written about in Daniel chapter 8.
During its time on this earth, it opens its mouth in blasphemy against God, which means everyone who boasts, “Who is like the beast, who can make war with it?” is blaspheming God. They are exalting the beast over God, and those people are the majority in every city, and they dominate the churches as well. They blaspheme His name, His Church, and they blaspheme our body as the temple of the Holy Spirit. They have no belief in the afterlife nor belief in anything to do with Heaven, which is the same as blaspheming everyone in Haven. Humanism is the clothing worn by the beast, which puts all priority on the human being and zero focus on God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. It eliminates religion to set itself up as God. It is their purpose to rid this world of Christianity and those who embrace the teachings of the Bible. Those blasphemers govern the schools and oversee every aspect of day-to-day life.
The beast boasts about great things it does, and the echo is heard in every word spoken by those in authority. Not only by those in authority, but those in our home with us, co-workers, and on every level. They build themselves up while disparaging others, and all the while thy say within themselves, “Who is like the beast, who can make war with it?” Every politician that speaks will boast of great things, while giving the God of Jesus Christ no glory at all. God says this, “But “he who glories, let him glory in the LORD.” 2 Corinthians 10:17 Most of the boasting coming from government leaders relate to global goals that every nation has, which is to boast on behalf of the government of the beast. We hear boasting constantly about combatting global warming, (Global warming contributes to the destruction of the power center of the beast Revelation 16:8-10) They also boast about international cooperation, referring to the development of the global “democracy,” or the global economy (Which comes to a total collapse Revelation 18). The list goes on.
Overcomes Christians and Conquers the World
“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.
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.”
Today, it’s easy to see that a war has been made against the followers of Jesus Christ, and all of the people of God wherever they may be. As written, “And it was given unto (the beast) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them…” The people of God are overcome by top global leaders down to the very youngest among the grass root levels of the populations of people. The first place to look to verify that is in the churches. The churches are supposed to be the hub of promoting the message of the Cross. It’s easy to see that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not being presented by the preachers and teachers. The Gospel is summed up in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” That means to talk about His crucifixion on the Cross, speak of His resurrection, and of His ascension into Heaven. He gave His life to atone for our sin and to give us eternal life.
The teachings of Jesus Christ do not exist in the social structure of communities. The reason for that is because power is given to the beast over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations, and all that live upon the earth worships the beast. Once Christ disappears from thoughts, feelings and behaviors then the beast can move in to make the human body its seat of government. Everyone has ditched Jesus Christ to live for the community that the beast has created. It is a social network which embraces humanism by putting importance on the human being and rejecting the idea of forgivable sin, the coming judgment, and eternal life. The global “democracy” of the beast is shaping every city around the world. Humanism is the clothing worn by the beast. All of those people who live for the beast is the broad way leading to destruction, but we live on the narrow way leading to eternal life. We do not follow the social network of the beast, and our name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.
“If any man has an ear, let him hear.
He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity:
he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword.
Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.”
Satan, the beast, and the second beast (false prophet) will be held in captivity, the eternal captivity of the burning lake of fire. That’s what they get for holding God’s people captive by opposing the freedom in the Spirit of Jesus Christ. Satan and his cohorts will be eternally severed from the Paradise of God and will be tormented in the eternal lake of fire. That’s what they get for severing God’s people from the Spirit of Jesus Christ and killing them.
These are the days when patience and faith are needed. Those who live for Jesus Christ are experiencing their hands and feet nailed to the cross, preventing us from doing anything for the Gospel of Christ. We are in captivity to the society that is governed by the beast. Our heart is filled with pain and sorrow to feel it being pierced by those who afflict God’s love. We feel the pain of the crown of thorns by the constant browbeating of thoughts and emotions that comes through the Spirit of Christ. We are being severed from the society that is dominated by those who despise the Gospel of Christ.
Today, anyone who lives for Jesus Christ are in captivity because there is not the freedom to share His Gospel. That is obvious because the churches are no longer a light to the world. Jesus Christ is not a part of worship, and the Holy Spirit is replaced for good feelings. Instead, they worship the beast as God. Also, there really aren’t any individual categories for Christ on social media, and personal evangelism in public places has come to a halt through city ordinances. The beast, the one holding Christians in captivity, will go into captivity. It will be the captivity found in the lake of fire where Satan, his beasts, and all those who live by the mark of the beast will be.
The one who kills by the sword will be killed by the sword. Satan, his beasts, and all those who live by the mark of the beast will be severed from the Paradise of God. They will be eternally thrown into the burning lake of fire.
It Uses the Soft Image of a Lamb
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth;
and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.”
This second beast is the third member of Satan’s trinity, the first beast is mentioned in Revelation 13:1. There is Satan (father), the first beast (his son), and the second beast (his version of the Holy Spirit). Satan imitates everything that God does, including the trinity for the purpose of setting itself up as God in the temple of God, our body. It’s fitting that this second beast is like a lamb, like the Holy Spirit is a dove. The two horns like a lamb means there are two things about this beast that makes it come across like a lamb to promote the agenda of the beast. Have you noticed the churchy sounding words coming out of the mouth of community and government leaders nowadays? Words like “peace,” “love,” “support,” “tolerance.” “democracy,” and on and on. Except, at the same time they are ridding the world of God, throwing out the need for Jesus Christ, and trampling on the Holy Spirit.
The teachings of the Bible are called hateful, unloving, unsupportive, bigoted, violent, horrid, etc. Christianity has no place in their society. At the same time, the churchy sounding words are coming from the “two horns like a lamb” to promote the agenda of the global “democracy” of the beast. They soften the killing of the unborn by calling it “reproductive rights,” they soften gay marriages by saying it’s the “right to marry who you love,” or the “family rights act” and the list goes on. The response to gun violence is to create peace by eliminating guns instead of solving issues of the heart, but they need military weapons to keep the peace in a hostile world. They use churchy words to make what they do sound Godly and upright.
What are the “two horns like a lamb?” Humanism is one of those horns, because they believe human love and reasoning can make the world a better place. They always use very supportive sounding words, but they detest Christianity, and see no realism in the forgiveness of sin. This is how humanism is defined, “Humanism is an outlook or system of thought attaching prime importance to human rather than divine or supernatural matters. Humanist beliefs stress the potential value and goodness of human beings, emphasize common human needs, and seek solely rational ways of solving human problems.”
The other horn is the churches. Have you noticed how lively and active the churches are nowadays, but they have tossed aside the message of the crucifixion, death, resurrection, and ascension of Christ? Along with humanism, they see no realism in the forgiveness of sin. The churches are even in partnership with the communities in promoting huge community events. For example, an internet search would show that “Trunk-or-Treat” events are nationwide, and they draw thousands of parents and children. Instead of being set apart from the broad way for service to Christ, they are bonded with the social network of the beast. The churches are doing much more than the “Trunk-or Treats.” Humanism and the churches are bonded together in their support of the agenda of the beast, like two horns of a lamb attached to the head of the beast.
The lamb part is just a public image because it is speaking on behalf of Satan who goes around making war with the followers of the Lamb of God. The churchy sounding words is a combination of humanism and the churches as they work for the agenda of the beast to establish the global “democracy.”
World’s Focus Turned Towards Living for the Beast
“And he exercises all the power of the first beast before him
and causes the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast,
whose deadly wound was healed.
And he doeth great wonders, so that he makes fire come down from heaven
on the earth in the sight of men,”
The beast mentioned in this verse is the beast with the “two horns like a lamb” in the previous verse. It uses a lot of churchy and humanitarian sounding words in promoting the agenda of the beast because its two horns are humanism and the churches. People love to hear words about “democracy” and “personal choice” and every protest and riot around the world is based on those churchy sounding words. The beast with “two horns like a lamb” is Satan’s version of the Holy Spirit as it exercises all of the power of the first beast. The first beast is Satan’s version of Jesus Christ. Satan imitates everything God does, including the trinity, in order to set himself up as God in the temple of God, our body. The Holy Spirit exercises the power of Jesus Christ while Jesus is in Heaven, which relates to causing people to worship Jesus as Lord and Savior. Satan’s version of the Holy Spirit, with its churchy sounding words, is causing the whole world to follow the will of the beast, which establishes the global government of the beast.
People are drawn to Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit relating to the wound He suffered during His crucifixion and then His resurrection from the dead. That is the Gospel that He was wounded for our transgression to bring the atonement for sin. Satan’s version of the Holy Spirit is causing people to serve the beast based on its power to heal and its authority over life and death (verse 3). People want that death-defying and healing power to be a part of their physiology, and when hearing churchy sounding words, they gladly follow the beast. The beast with “two horns like a lamb, with its churchy sounding words, is doing great wonders for the people of the world to see. Its purpose, as Satan’s Holy Spirit, is to seize power by establishing the global “democracy” of the beast. When Jesus went to Heaven, He gave us the Holy Spirit, and by the great wonders performed through the Apostles, the whole world came to the knowledge of the Gospel.
The fire the beast causes to come down from heaven would relate to something fearful and intimidating, something as simple as the riots and protests which are uniting the world in a single purpose for global change. It would not have anything to do with a fire that causes people to come to Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin. The fire of the beast would have the end result of mocking God, discarding the need for Jesus, and trampling on the Holy Spirit.
Deceitful in Persuading the World to Serve the Beast
“And deceives 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 deceiver in this verse is the beast spoken about in verses 11 and 12, which has the “two horns like a lamb.” This is Satan’s version of the Holy Spirit within his trinity because it uses churchy sounding words of humanism and the churches. The two horns are humanism and the churches. The trinity of Satan is, Satan (father), first beast (his son in verse 1), and the second beast (his version of Holy Spirit, or false prophet vs 11-17). The miracles that the Holy Spirit did through the Apostles were done in the sight of Jesus Christ, they were done in His name. The miracles that Satan’s version of the Holy Spirit does is done in the sight of the first beast. Which is to say that through all the churchy and humanitarian sounding words, the acts are performed in the name of the beast.
The inhabitants of the earth are deceived by the beast’s churchy and humanitarian sounding words, the power it has over physiology, and its power over external elements. It comes across like a lamb as Satan’s version of the Holy Spirit, while being very deceptive. Satan’s version of the Holy Spirit is nothing more than public images, convincing words, beautiful scenarios, etc. For example, the words and images being used to promote the global government of the beast relates to prosperity, “democracy,” “personal choice,” etc. That deceit is also seen in calling the killing of the unborn, “Reproductive Rights,” and the law for gay marriages the “Respect for Marriage Act,” and the list goes on. Anything they say cannot be taken at face value, they are very superficial and deceitful.
Deceitful tactics are being used in every sector of society, relating to school boards, local government public meetings, employer and employee relations etc. They are promising peace and safety when God has not said anything about peace and safety, “For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people superficially, Saying, ‘Peace, peace!’ When there is no peace.” Jermiah 8:11 In the power of the Holy Spirit, God plainly tells us that there is tribulation ahead and we must carry our cross. He plainly warns that there is no earthly Heaven, and the global “democracy” promised through churchy and humanitarian sounding words is headed towards severe turbulence. What He does promise is that everyone who overcomes the evil of this world will inherit eternal life. Whoever believes in Him, and lives for Jesus Christ, will have an eternal home in the New Jerusalem.
The function of Satan’s version of the Holy Spirit, the beast with “two horns like a lamb,” is to get all the earth to make an image to the beast, “…that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.” It uses all the deceit it has within its churchy and humanitarian sounding words to make it happen. Beyond words, it makes its miraculous power over physiology well-known to every living creature. Today, everyone knows its ability to bring physical healings to the body and the power it has over life and death. It flaunts its ability to raise life by cloning animals from a single cell, and its ability to resurrect life from a single cell which has been dead for years and years. It flaunts its miracles to be able to reach into every fiber of our physiology to form thoughts, emotions, feelings and behaviors.
By the power it has over every cell of physiology, it persuades people to make an image to the beast. As part of the persuasion, it endows people with uncanny knowledge, heightened intuition, extraordinary skills and talents, amazing physical abilities, authority, physical comforts, sensual pleasure, etc. The beast’s image is already given life in the world. The image of the beast is internal, as it wants to set in our body, the temple of God, as God, “It opposes and exalts itself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that it sits in the temple of God, showing itself that it is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:4 Satan wants to imitate everything that God has ever done, “ Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16 God wants us to be formed into the image of His Son Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit, but Satan wants us to be formed into the image of the beast by the beast which has “two horns like a lamb,” his version of the Holy Spirit. To make the image of the beast requires a person to blaspheme God, throw out the need for Jesus Christ, and to trample on the Holy Spirit.
A person who lives for Jesus Christ is changed into His image, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18 Jesus Christ is the invisible image of God, “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.” Colossians 1:15 God wants us to be transformed into the image of Jesus, “For those whom He foreknew He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, in order that He might be the firstborn among many brothers.” Romans 8:29
Life Given to the Beast.
“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.”
The “he” in the verse above is the second beast with “two horns like a lamb,” and it is very active as Satan’s version of the Holy Spirit. The “beast” in the verse above is the first beast (vs.1) who is Satan’s version of Jesus Christ. It’s like how active the Holy Spirit was in this world, and still is, to give life to Jesus Christ on every continent and every country around the world. Satan copies everything God does, including the trinity, because he wants to set in the temple of God, our body, as God. Now, the beast with “two horns like a lamb” has power to give life to the image of the beast, in the same way that the Holy Spirit has power to give life to Jesus Christ within us.
The beast with “two horns like a lamb” gives the image of the beast the ability speak, in the same way that the Holy Spirit gives the ability of the image of Christ to speak through us. Our tongue, voice box, and lungs are given to Christ through the Holy Spirit so that we speak His words, in the same way that the “image of the beast” speaks through a person. The beast with “two horns like a lamb” uses churchy and humanitarian sounding words in the process of giving life to the image of the beast in us. In the same way that the image of Christ speaks through the Holy Spirit, the image of the beast speaks through the “two horns like a lamb.” It’s exactly like the wolves in lamb’s clothing that the Lord warns us about, and it is the beast wrapped in human clothing. With its power over physiology, the words spoken through us by the “image of the beast” are from an uncanny knowledge and heightened intuition. Emotions, feelings, and thoughts are formed by the beast with each word spoken by the person under its influence. Those under the influence of the “image of the beast” can come across as very warm and sincere in their superficial, empty, and deceitful words.
The global government of the beast has its life through the “image of the beast” and its life depends on the sea of the populations of the world living according to the “image of the beast”. The “democracy” and “personal freedom” the global leaders are talking about is to allow every person, city, and country the freedom to live by its influence. It’s the same thing as the followers of Jesus Christ having their existence through Him by the presence of the Holy Spirit. Except, there is no “democracy” nor “personal choice” for those who want to be conformed to the image of Jesus. The global government of the beast is eliminating the image of Jesus Christ in the world, trampling on the Holy Spirit, and blaspheming God.
There is a war for the soul of individuals, Satan wants to make our body the home of the image of the beast and God makes our body the home of the Holy Spirit. If everyone chose to live for Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit, there would be no world formed through the image of the beast by the beast with “two horns like a lamb.” Today, the followers of Jesus Christ, and all of the people of God, are ostracized from the social network who has dedicated their life to the beast. As the government of the beast progresses forward, the persecution will intensify, “…and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” To refuse the image of the beast is to refuse the government that operates in every city around the world.
The beast causes everyone to receive a mark.
“And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond,
to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
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 “he” in the verse above is the second beast with “two horns like a lamb,” which governs over the affairs of the first beast (vs.1). It is like the Holy Spirit who governs over the affairs of Jesus Christ. In fact, the beast with “two horns like a lamb” is Satan’s version of the Holy Spirit. It uses churchy and humanitarian sounding words to promote the agenda of the beast, which is to promote the global “democracy.” For example, the two horns of the beast are humanism and the churches. It is that beast, the false Holy Spirit or false prophet, that is establishing the rules for buying and selling. Buying and selling relates to the mark and also to the image of the beast. The image of the beast is given life to speak through us, and the mark establishes our destiny in life.
“And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond…” The populations of the world are already under the influence of the image of the beast which is given life by the beast with “two horns like a lamb.” Babies come from the womb with uncanny behaviors, facial expressions, etc. which are stunning and amusing. Even while in the womb, mothers talk about their unborn child dancing while listening to a specific type of music but is still during other types of music. The image of the beast is already speaking through them, and they are destined for a mark. Mothers talk about it seriously with a giggle of unbelief. The oldest and most prestigious of people are under the influence of the image of the beast which is given life through their words, and they are made to receive a mark. Likewise, those who are locked away in prison have the image of the beast living in them through their words, and they have uncanny knowledge and heightened intuition in their circumstances. They are made to receive a mark. People who are free in society, are employees, and part of a family are under the same influence of the image of the beast as those in prison. They receive their mark too. The same is true of school children and their parents who have the image of the beast speaking through them. Each one has their own mark. The common factor with the image of the beast speaking through people is that it makes a mockery of God, tramples on the Holt Spirit, and discards any need for Jesus Christ. The mark ensures that.
The image of the beast has already been given life to speak within every individual, and now the beast with “two horns like a lamb” is causing everyone to receive a mark, “…causes all…to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads.” The mark relates to what our place in society is, and unless we live by that mark then we will not be able to buy and sell. The image of the beast is able to speak, and it gives us the words, uncanny knowledge, heightened intuition, skill sets, and talents which are fitting for our mark. The mark on the right hand relates to our extraordinary skill set and talents which corresponds to what we do for the society of the beast. The mark on the forehead relates to the uncanny knowledge, information, and heightened intuition that is used for the government of the beast. If we try to deviate or break from the mark, then we do not have the needed skills and knowledge to succeed in life. Also, breaking from the mark causes attitudes that are hostile towards those who govern society by that mark. They insist that we behave and function according to the mark. If we refuse the mark, we are considered unruly, out of place, and we lose our place in society, and we will not be able to buy and sell. The followers of Jesus Christ reject the mark because it blasphemes God, discards the need for Jesus Christ, and tramples on the Holy Spirit. We are rejected by the society who lives by the mark, and we are prohibited from buying or selling.
Because everyone is given a mark to live by, the churchy and humanitarian words of the beast with “two horns like a lamb” flourishes. The lifestyle, or mark, of every person is to be shown love, support, tolerance, respect, understanding, kindness, etc. The notion of sin is discarded because the mark causes some people to accept a station in life that is contrary to the teachings of the Bible. Jesus Christ is despised because repentance would cause a person to reject the mark and live for Him. The Holy Spirit is trampled on because the mark is designed to prohibit a person from communion with Him. The beast makes people its seat of government through the mark and through the image of the beast that is given life and speaks through us.
It’s obvious that those in prison do not have the same uncanny knowledge and heightened intuition that people who work in the community have. Likewise, those who have uncanny knowledge and heightened intuition for sports are not operating with the same uncanny knowledge and heightened intuition of political leaders. Each person has their place in society and each person is endowed with specific knowledge, intuition, and skills to be successful in their corner of the world. Also, some people’s mark is the gay lifestyle, some people’s mark is to be with the opposite sex, some people’s mark is to be a manager of a business, and some people’s mark is to be a janitor. Each person has a mark that the churchy and humanitarian sounding beast causes each person to receive. The beast with “two horns like a lamb” is very tolerant of each person’s mark, which is why its words are churchy and humanitarian sounding. However, God sees each one of us according to what we can be in Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit, and He makes people the home of the Holy Spirit.
Anyone knows that buying, selling, giving, or receiving is nothing the way it used to be, it is filled with barbs and especially relating to customer service of any type. It also relates to people’s willingness to give or receive from specific people. People are not giving nor receiving two cents towards those who are not living by the mark they are expected to receive. Those who have their mark has a much smoother experience of buying, selling, giving, or receiving something. Exchanges are cordial among the society who live by the mark. Also, employment is according to the mark. If a person is willing to work as a janitor, as their mark destines them to, then they will be able to buy and sell. If they reject the mark, then they will be rejected. People everywhere frown on those who reject the mark and gives positive feedback when the mark is received. They are mandating the mark.
This next statement doesn’t need to be said, that there will be no tattoo of “666” on the forehead nor on the right hand. The mark is not a computer chip implanted in the hand or in the forehead. The beast has power over physiology and has an extraordinary bank of knowledge, intelligence, intuition, and bits of information. Its source of knowledge far surpasses any desktop computer, server, or any other chip device. In fact, it dominates every technological device in this world, including TVs, radios, cell phones, computers, tablets, Alexa, Siri, GPS devices, etc. Any informational chip implanted on the body would be substandard to the inner presence currently working in this world through people. Additionally, hackers would have a field day hacking into the implanted chip to cause havoc to the system that governs by the “image of the beast” which is given life and is able to speak. Everyone knows that this present system under the government of the beast doesn’t seem to be vulnerable to hacking and power outages.

The digital dollar is very compatible to the mark because it allows direct credits to be deposited into a bank account according to the assigned wages of a person’s mark. The global government of the beast is already setting up the foundations to implement it, including Russia and the United States. Click here to read a post on the digital dollar.
The number “666” unites the person with the beast.
Let him that hath understanding calculate the number of the beast:
for it is the number of a man;
and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.:”
The phrase, “Let him that hath understanding calculate the number of the beast…” is letting us know that the beast is not spiritual in nature nor is it of the human spirit. It is artificial and worldly. That is exactly how Satan operates, he sets out to destroy the Spirit of God and the human spirit. We live in a technological age that controls every aspect of the lives of people around the world. Space technology was seen by Ezekiel when in a vision he saw the space shuttle, the space station, and the space satellites, click here to read what Ezekiel says about space technology and satellites. Technology has become intertwined with people, and we can safely say that the number of the beast is the number of the man.
The beast and the person are one-in-the-same because the image of the beast is within people and has been given life to speak through us. The same as the image of Christ being within Believers and we become one with Him. Satan copies everything that God does. The word, “man,” in the phrase “the number of the man” refers to “mankind,” or humanity because, “All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast—all whose names have not been written in the Lamb’s book of life, the Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world” Revelation 13:18. Worship means to worship the image of the beast which is within a person. The number of the beast/man is what bonds the person and the beast, which is “666.” That represents blasphemy towards God (6), discarding the need for Jesus Christ (6), and trampling on the Holy Spirit (6). We break the bond with the beast when we believe God, acknowledge our need for Jesus Christ, and embrace the Holy Spirit.
The Bible consistently gives human traits to the beast and bonds the two together. The descriptions given in the scriptures below includes the head, eyes, mouth, hand, breathe, and life.
- Has Breathe and a Mouth to Speak: Breathe is what gives us the ability to speak by the air in the lungs, along with a voice box, and a tongue. The image of the beast is given breath with a mouth to speak. “The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak.” Revelation 13:15 Again, Satan tries to imitate everything that Jesus Christ and God does by giving the breath of life. Speaking of Jesus Christ, “And with that He breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit.” John 20:22 And God breathed life into Adam, “Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7
- Eyes and Mouth Like a Human Being: “This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully.” Daniel 7:8
- Human and False God are Twins: This is found in Acts 28:11-13 where it mentions the ship sailing towards the world capital having the sign of the twins, one a human and one a god. The name of the human is Castor, and the name of the god is Pollux. The human part would be the flesh-and-blood person while the god part would be the beast. As twins, they share a common bond, like the image of the beast with the person.
- Beast and the Person the Same: The person is not only meshed with the beast but also shares the beast’s “666” character. The “666” is what holds the bond together. The bond between the person and the beast is brought out in Revelation 17:3-6. The beast is scarlet, and the person sitting on the beast is dressed in scarlet. It would be near impossible to distinguish one from the other, or where one left off and the other began. Also, it uses wealth and has a cup filled with abominations which is the “666” of the beast being revealed through a person. The purple represents treating people like royalty, or like a god, if they welcome the beast into their physiology, thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. “There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries.”
- Technology Blends the Person with the Mark of the Beast: The beast is filled with blasphemy against God, discards Jesus Christ, and tramples on the Holy Spirit. That is exactly what is seen in every city around the world as people are living by the mark and the image of the beast. The “666” bonds the beast to the person. “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.” Revelation 13:18 By using the term “calculate,” we are aware that the bond of the beast and person is not spiritual but is artificial/technological, like a puppet or human robot.
- Our Body is the Temple of God Where It Sets. “ Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 1 Corinthians 3:16 and speaking of the beast “It opposes and exalts itself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that it sits in the temple of God, showing itself that it is God.”
