Another Beast

Before this beast, there is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus. The tribulation begins, and one hundred million saints will give up their lives rather than take the mark of the beast. Endure for the reward is beyond measure.

Then I saw another beast rising out of the earth. It had two horns, like a lamb. Beasts are angelic beings, but this beast is different. There is no head, just that these horns are on the beast. Unlike other beasts, it does not rise out of the sea but out of the land. This part of Revelation and the events that take place in Revelation 13:11–18 are attributed to the Antichrist. In fact, the Antichrist is not mentioned in Revelations, besides the inference from the beast having two horns. The False Prophet only pops up as a character in one of the wraths of God in Revelations 16 and is thrown into the lake of fire in 19. Numerous things are attributed to the Antichrist that are actually done by the Beast. It is the beast that causes the people to follow the first beast, and so on. The beast stops everybody from buying or selling unless they have the mark of the fourth beast. Daniel's description of these events is just that of the character we know as the Antichrist. He has other names, but Antichrist in this case is not against Christ but the opposite of Christ. An evil Messiah, if you will. Jesus was both man and God, just as the Antichrist and the beast from the earth are the same entity. Both man (666) and demonic spirit. These two horns that arise out of the beast from the earth are called the Antichrist and False Prophet because there are no other candidates. One horn is both man and spirit.

Daniel says that this one horn causes three horns to be plucked out. The beast/man works in the shadows, and as Revelation says, he has to be revealed to us. The time may be relatively short before he moves. It will also be happening in the Houses of Europe. Look for changes in the royal families. The only thing I know for sure is that he will not be some evil-looking character out of a movie. He will be wearing blue jeans and be cool. The words he says will be very welcome to many Christian ears.
