The abyss-beast is characterized by this human ruler, and his reign will be of short duration, which occurs at the end of the Church age, when the “eighth king” rises to power. While the seventh king is not named, by comparing scripture with scripture, we’re able to confidently identify this king as Satan. Romulus, the last of the Roman emperors in the west, was overthrown by the Germanic leader Odoacer, who became the first Barbarian to rule in Rome. The good fruit that identifies us with Christ and His kingdom is in clear contrast to the rotten fruit of those who belong to Satan and his kingdom. It’s also important to note that Christ’s Church is the “dwelling place” of the Holy Spirit. In regard to the seventh empire, we’re not told who those rulers (two kings) are, but is something we have to figure out by comparing scripture with scripture. It’s through these that unbelievers reveal who they are. “authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation”. NET – 6 So the beast opened his mouth to blaspheme against God – to blaspheme both his name and his dwelling place, that is, those who dwell in heaven. The phrase behind this translation is ὡς ἐσφαγμένον (Jw” ejsfagmenon). He told those who live on the earth to make an image to the beast who had been wounded by the sword, but still lived. Revelation 13 1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. We’re to “endure” and remain strong in our “faith,” knowing that the persecutions and trials of this life are only temporary, and that we have the glories of Heaven to look forward to. 13 “I know your works, and where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. Therefore, this verse should not be interpreted like that. I believe this king is the “man of sin” (“man of lawlessness”) of 2 Thessalonians 2:3. They deceive with their words. The same is true of those who have the “mark of the beast.” It’s a symbolic mark of identification of who they belong to. That’s how they lure people in, and away from the truth that is in Christ, who is Himself the truth (Jn 14:6). No other interpretation has such worldwide influence as the domain of Satan (1 Jn 5:19), as the next verse confirms. It’s simply symbolic of who we belong to. If we’re to see the full scope of this revelation, we must see it through the overall message of the New Testament—which is what I’ve strived to do throughout this commentary. A worldwide assault against God’s people will not happen overnight. As for the “two horns,” like the horns of the first beast, they probably represent power and authority. What’s in view here is the kingdom of darkness against the kingdom of light, which is what we see throughout the book of Revelation. We have to keep in mind that this chapter is the seventh head (empire, kingdom), which is the kingdom of darkness. Symbolic identification of those who belong to the kingdom of darkness (vs. 16). (Rev 13:5) – 5 and there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and there was given to him authority to continue forty and two months. Mention of the “forehead” might be a reference to the mind, what unbelievers think. It’s the whole world and its system that is in view. To summarize, in the seventh world empire (now, Church age), there are two kings: Satan, who is the seventh king, and the “man of sin,” who is the eighth king (Rev 17:10-11)—who arises at the end of this empire. Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. Ten horns – Confederacy of kings that arise prior to Christ’s return, under the authority of the “eight king” (Rev 17:11). Everything this beast stands for is in opposition to Christ and the Christian faith, which is the only truth in the world. The teachings of Christianity is diametrically opposed to the teachings and ways of the world, and thus Christians would not be included among those who participate in the “buying or selling” (sharing) of the ways of the world. Blasphemous names were written on its heads. However, this worldwide authority doesn’t allow this beast to make war with all the saints. (NASB), (2 Cor 4:3-4) – 3 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing. Rather, it’s the demonic sub-rulers of the kingdom of darkness — that is, demons that rule in that kingdom on behalf of Satan (Eph 6:12). There’s something far more significant going on in this chapter and in this book than what Premillennialism teaches (esp as it concerns Dispensational Premillennialism). We have the truth. All that opposes Christ is in the world today. I believe he is the actual “antichrist” that the Apostle John mentions in 1 John 2:18. It’s the realm that we’re all in before we come to faith in Christ: (Col 1:13) – 13 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,” (NASB), (Acts 26:18) – 18 to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me. Who can fight against this kingdom of darkness? In other words, everything in this chapter should be viewed post Roman empire (sixth empire). Here is wisdom. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him, 16 because all that is in the world (the desire of the flesh and the desire of the eyes and the arrogance produced by material possessions) is not from the Father, but is from the world. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. The symbolism of the heads and horns is the same as with the dragon. John informs us that “the antichrist is coming.” I believe this refers specifically to the “eighth king” (Rev 17:11), whom I also believe to be the “man of sin” (2 Th 2:3). This will all eventually lead to an all-out assault against Christians worldwide prior to the return of Christ, which is the “War of Armageddon” (see commentary on Rev 11:7; Rev 16:16). Significant point: It’s important to understand that at the time of John’s revelation/writing, this sea-beast was in transition from the sixth world empire (Rome) to the seventh world empire (kingdom of darkness), which came into existence once Rome fell. Revelation 1:13 (King James Version) A.F.V A.S.V. (ESV), (1 Jn 3:10) – 10 By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother. The blasphemy of this beast, of course, is directed against God and His holy “name.” It’s also directed against “His dwelling place,” where Jesus sits enthroned as the true King, where the angels serve God, and where His glorified saints will dwell in His presence forever and ever. It means that the people of the world, worship the beast (kingdom of darkness) through the false beliefs they embrace. Whether it’s through those who lead countries or through those who lead false religions, it’s sinful man that represents the kingdom of darkness as the “image of the beast ” (kingdom of the world). Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. This will become more and more clear as we continue through the remainder of Revelation. Though it’s true of some, most do not worship Satan directly—that is, on purpose. He cannot work alone to accomplish his evil purposes. In other words, everything regarding these two beasts originate with him, and is orchestrated by him. 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 - In this verse we have the very name of the beast given under the symbol of the number 666. They worship him by giving their hearts and lives to those things that are associated with him and his kingdom: false religion, philosophies of the world, materialism, sinful pleasures, self-glorification, power and prestige, hatred toward Christians and what we stand for, etc. But that’s what happens when we interpret Revelation with such strict literalism. It refers to humanity as a whole. The sea-beast is the kingdom of darkness—ruled by Satan—and this land-beast refers to the sub-rulers of that kingdom. All the voices of false religion, anti-Christian philosophies, anti-Christian government, worldly values, sinful pleasures, etc., speak, So the beast opened his mouth to blaspheme against God – to blaspheme both, The blasphemy of this beast, of course, is directed against God and His holy, Both Christians and non-Christians alike, who may be hearing this or reading this, need to listen to what’s being said here. Revelation 13 King James Version << Revelation 12 | Revelation 13 | Revelation 14 >> The Two Beasts. “And he maketh the earth and them that dwell therein to worship the first beast”. NET – 10 If anyone is meant for captivity, into captivity he will go. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. This is definitely associated with Satan, as Rev 12:3 informs us. In other words, the kingdom of darkness casts its “image” upon the world. The world is ruled by humanity. (Rev 13:6) – 6 And he opened his mouth for blasphemies against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, even them that dwell in the heaven. Or rather, taking advantage of the sinfulness of humanity, who are easily influenced by evil and falsehood. All Scripture quotations are from the 1901 American Standard Version unless otherwise noted. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. 2. “who like the beast, and who is able to make war with him”. Considering all the seven’s in this book, I don’t believe it’s a coincidence that the number six here is assigned to this beast, since the number seven is assigned to Christ and His Church. In regard to the identity of the eighth king, again we have to compare scripture with scripture (Rev 11:7; Rev 20:1-3; 2 Th 2:3, 8-9). When we read the above passage from 1 John in the context of that whole chapter (please read 1 Jn 2), it helps to confirm that our interpretation of who the sea-beast and land-beast are, is the correct one—keeping in mind that John is the author of both 1 John and Revelation. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his … The world is full of false prophets and false religions and false belief systems, but they all originate with the rulers of darkness. This entire chapter (entire book) describes the whole world and its system in opposition to the followers of Christ and His teachings. This describes the worldwide dominance of this beast. A common understanding is that the beast of this chapter (Rev 13) is a composite of the evil and dreadful characteristics of those four beasts, which were these empires: Note that John only saw the first three beasts in Daniel’s vision. And the whole world followed the beast in amazement; 10 tn Grk “killed to death,” an expression emphatic in its redundancy. “He told those who live on the earth to make an image to the beast who had been wounded by the sword, but still lived.”. That’s what this chapter is about. Other translations place this phrase at the end of chapter 12: The one “standing upon the sand of the sea,” is Satan, as Rev 12:13-18 makes clear. (Rev 13:17) – 17 and that no man should be able to buy or to sell, save he that hath the mark, even the name of the beast or the number of his name. Therefore, at that time, he will fully embody all the sin and evil that humanity represents, for he will be fully indwelt and controlled by Satan himself. Version. We will go into detail about this when we get to chapter 17. Thus he will be the full human embodiment of Satan. Revelation 13, Brief Exposition of — Algernon James Pollock (Things Which Must Shortly Come to Pass) Revelation 13, Fragment on — John Nelson Darby (Collected Writings of J.N. a. It’s the people of the world that make the world and it’s system what it is—as it’s being incited (“told”) by the rulers of darkness (beast, false prophet). This whole chapter describes an enemy that is against Christians, and Christians alone. However, in the end, just prior to the return of Christ, the “eighth king” of Rev 17:11 (“man of sin” – 2 Th 2:3) will arise to rule the world for a brief period of time. Here is wisdom. As I’ve already talked about, this end time king is viewed as “the beast” himself in Rev 17:11. Again, not to be taken literally. Everything they speak is against the truth. K.J.V. This is his kingdom, through which he deceives the world. (Rev 13:2) – 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 throne, and great authority. Unbelievers need to take warning and turn to Christ as Lord and Savior, or face the eternal consequences. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. It’s only until we come to faith in Christ that we escape this dark and evil kingdom (Col 1:13; Acts 26:18). Our lives should clearly reveal who we belong to. In other words, the events of this chapter have been terribly sensationalized. Furthermore, they speak on behalf of Satan, who is their General. People go into all kinds of theories about its meaning. ESV – 12 It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. Many of our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world are literally being tortured and killed. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, "Who is like the beast? No other interpretation fits so perfectly in this chapter or throughout this book. Putting it all together, that this seven-headed beast (Church-age beast) is the kingdom of darkness, seems all too clear to be anything else. (ESV). We’re now living in the period of the seventh empire, which covers the whole Church era. Thus we do not have this same sense of awe toward the beast that the rest of the world has. Bible Language English. A lot to get our attention. And you hold fast to My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days in which Antipas was My faithful martyr, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. Revelation 13:1 NKJV. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. Salem Media Group. All the voices of false religion, anti-Christian philosophies, anti-Christian government, worldly values, sinful pleasures, etc., speak “blasphemies” against God. He will be indwelt by and completely controlled by Satan. Everything in this chapter (and book) should be interpreted with that in mind. This spirit of antichrist rules throughout the Church age, while the human antichrist will rise to power as the “eighth king” (Rev 17:11), who is the “man of sin” (2 Th 2:3). Even America – with our Christian roots – is becoming more and more anti-Christian. Christians are to be fully prepared for what may come our way—whether it be, We see that this beast is being compared to a. The four beasts of Daniel 7 are applied to the beast of this chapter as one beast, instead of four. It’s a conflict between two kingdoms, as I talk about throughout this chapter. The whole tenor of the book of Revelation is about the conflict between the kingdom of Christ and the kingdom of Satan, from beginning to end. During the Church age (Christian era, gospel era), this beast is allowed to make war against the Church and to overcome them through persecution and death (Rev 13:7). They worship the beast the same way they worship Satan, by giving themselves to the things of this kingdom, which is ruled by Satan. However, as Rev 17:8-11 seems to make clear, once the “eight king” arises, then this king will be regarded as the beast himself, although still part of the seventh empire. (We’ll deal more with “abyss-beast” when we get to chapter 17). And the beast which I saw, was like vnto a Leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a Beare, and his … Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. It represents those who belong to the kingdom of darkness. NET Notes “sn Diadem crowns were a type of crown used as a symbol of the highest ruling authority in a given area, and thus often associated with kingship.”. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred and sixty and six. It had ten horns and seven heads, and on its horns were, Right away we see that this beast that comes up out of the, It’s important to understand that there is a, While both Rev 13 and Rev 17 deals with the, To summarize, in the seventh world empire (now, Church age), there are, At this point, I need to make the case that the, With everything we’ve discussed in this chapter so far, and with the above verses in mind, I think the, Both Christians and non-Christians alike are involved in spiritual warfare. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. John also indicates that while antichrist himself is not in the world yet, the “spirit of antichrist” is. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. (Rev 13:4) – 4 and they worshipped the dragon, because he gave his authority unto the beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? In other words, this number does not refer to a certain individual. They form it and fashion it as they will (within the limits God allows), all for the purpose of deceiving the world in order to keep people from coming to faith in Christ. Realistically, what could possibly have authority over “every tribe and people and tongue and nation?” The kingdom of darkness is the only thing that touches every living soul in the world. Cancel. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns ten diadems, and upon his heads names of blasphemy. Revelation 13:1-18 Chapter 13 begins with a very colorful, almost overpowering, vision showing an overview of the political system that Satan works through. Most people of the world worship the devil indirectly. There’s only one interpretation for the identity of this beast that can possibly fit this all-encompassing description, and that’s the kingdom of darkness. The similar number of heads and horns reveals that the beast is from the dragon and like the dragon in wickedness. Satan rules directly as its king. Just as Christ – the Lamb of God – exercises power and authority over His kingdom, so does Satan and his demonic legions exercise power and authority over their kingdom. It appeared to have been killed because the Roman Empire fell. To be clear, the first six empires were ruled by human kings. 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. Then I stood on the sand of the sea. To interpret this false prophet as a particular person (like the Pope, for example) is far too limiting. Thus we know Who is able to “make war with him.” We have to keep in mind that, although ruled by the ruler (king) of darkness (Satan), this beast, technically, is not a person, but an empire. Thus those who bear the “name” of the beast, are identified with Satan as belonging to him and his kingdom, as his children (Acts 26:18; Col 1:13; 1 Jn 3:10). It’s also through these that believers reveal who we are. Scripture taken from the New King James Version. Thus the beast is represented in the world by those who belong to him. It almost seems obvious that the identity of this beast is that kingdom (empire).

(Rev 12:17) – 17 And the dragon waxed wroth with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, that keep the commandments of God, and hold the testimony of Jesus: (Rev 13:1) – 1 And he stood upon the sand of the sea.

The Apostle John, who wrote the book of Revelation, understood this world system well as he describes in 1 John: NET – (1 John 2:15-17) – 15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. Therefore, he has to have an army of demonic soldiers around the world who work on his behalf, under his rule (Eph 6:10-12,16). ” verses 16:2 ; 19:20 ; Rev 16:13 ; Rev 16:13 ; Rev ;.
