Discussing The Second Beast In Revelation 13, and How To Identify Him In Your Life
Let’s decode the second beast of Revelations 13.
In my prior post, we discussed how the first beast of Revelation 13 is 5000 years old, very sly, and is creating a world system as an attempt to dethrone the one true God. In another post, we discussed Mystery Babylon and her seductive ways that cause the ugly beast to be palatable and accepted even in the homes of those who call themselves “Christian”. Together, they are doing their best to enter your home, feed you your dinner, give you a job, and train your children among other things. If you have not yet identified who they are, you will not be able to appropriate a strategy to overcome their seductive attempts to be a part of your life. See either of my previous posts to decode Revelations 13 and for further information about either of them:
- How does The First Beast Of John’s Vision in Revelations 13 Intrude in Your Daily Life?
- Who is Mystery Babylon, The Bible’s Whore of The Nations?
In this post, we will be discussing another ally on their team; the second beast. Revelation 13:11 describes the second beast saying, “Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. It had two horns like those of a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon.” The second beast appears like a lamb, but speaks like a dragon, and has two horns. In Revelation 17:12 the angel Gabriel decodes the horns of the first beast saying:
“The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet begun to rule, but they receive power as kings for one hour, along with the beast. ”
Daniel also has a similar experience where the horns of the beast in his vision were interpreted as kings. Daniel 7:24 says, “As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; and yet another will arise after them.”
With the two witnesses of horns on a beast meaning kings, we can interpret the two horns on the second beast of Revelation 13 as two kings. Contrary to what many people teach about the false prophet in Revelation, the second beast (false prophet) is a union of two kings that lead the people of the world towards the first beast (5000 year old one world government system). Revelation 13:12 says, “ It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence; and it makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, the one whose fatal wound had been healed.” The second beast holds the legislative and spiritual power of the first beast. He steps on the world stage with the scope of influence of the first beast. He is not only a spiritual force but a governmental force. The second beast is the false prophet that is also a system that wields all of the power of the first beast, but approaches his false teaching in the veneer of kindness (the exterior of a lamb) with a vulgar and deadly intent (he speaks like a dragon).
The second beast rises from among the first beast system, branches off, gains the trust of many, then increases in its handouts of immorality successively; misleading the people by slowly progressing the doses of immorality without their notice. Being that John describes the appearance of the second beast as a lamb, we know that the second beast appears harmless.
Yeshua and the atonement sacrifice was also likened to a lamb, so we can also think that the second beast may demonstrate some likeness to our Messiah; maybe in word, maybe in deed. John goes on to say that the second beast spoke like a dragon. When using the Bible to interpret the behavior of a dragon, we see the following scriptures:
-The great dragon was thrown out, that ancient serpent, also known as the Devil and Satan [the Adversary], the deceiver of the whole world. He was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him. (Revelation 12:9)
-The dragon was infuriated over the woman and went off to fight the rest of her children, those who obey God’s commands and bear witness to Yeshua. (Revelation 12:17)
-They worshipped the dragon, because he had given his authority to the beast; and they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who can fight against it?” (Revelations 13:4)
In Ken Klein’s book America, Globalism, and The False Prophet, he decodes the second beast of Revelation 13. Before I tell you what he said, I want to ask you, “What two kingdoms do people think are Christian, but demonstrate a different truth in their ways?” Come on, guess what he said…
In his book, Ken Klein said America and the United Nations comprise the second beast: the False Prophet. I agree with Ken Klein’s assessment. America and the United Nations led in sending missionaries all over the world and doing humanitarian missions, but they also led in sending pornography, ill-planned terror, and war related crime. I love America and I have served in the military, so I can say from my own insider assessment that we have done a lot of harm for personal one world government gain. It saddens me. I have seen many people injured and die lied to; thinking that they were defending their country, when in fact, they were appeasing the greed of the New World Order elite.
Going further in Revelation 13 it says, ” It deceives the people living on earth by the miracles it is allowed to perform in the presence of the beast”
With this we know the beast will be performing miracles. In one of my previous posts, I discussed the necessity of knowing the difference between magic and miracles. Many people who call themselves Christian use miracles as a sign of authenticity. They believe that if miracles are performed and Christian terminology is used (such as Jesus’ name, “slain in the Spirit”, holy laughter, etc.), or God is given the credit for the miracle, then it comes from Yahweh. This could not be further from the truth! From the Old Testament on, there were people with power that did not receive their power from God such as the magicians in Egypt, Balaam, Jezebel, and Simon. If you need wisdom to discern magic from miracles, check this post out now.
The second beast will do miracles, but will not be doing these miracles with God’s power. Instead he will be doing miracles with demonic power. We will need to be able to discern God’s power from demonic power. The second beast is a system of two nations. People will represent the two nations to lead others to worship the beast. These people may come with the title “Pastor”, “Healer”, “Apostle”, “Bishop”, “Pontiff”, or “President”. You nor I know what title these representatives of the second beast system will wear, but regardless of what it is, we need to be prepared to exercise our discernment ability, so we are unmoved. We cannot worship the beasts or the dragon (Satan). He will mislead the masses with miraculous signs.
Revelations 13:14-15 says, “it tells them to make an image honoring the beast that was struck by the sword but came alive again. It was allowed to put breath into the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could even speak; and it was allowed to cause anyone who would not worship the image of the beast to be put to death”. The images that the second beast (America and the United Nations) have created are many. They have breathed spiritual life into many images created by men that mislead the masses. Let me list a few…
- Video Games
- Human-Animal Chimeras
- Genetically Modified Foods
- And the list goes on…
Disclaimer: I am not saying that electronics, transhumanism, or science cannot be used to glorify God. However, the beast system (comprised by the first beast, second beast, and Mystery Babylon) uses of the devices for his Revelation 13 purposes.
These images feed the populace with the perspective desired by the first beast system. The media is highly censored because it is owned by five companies (with many different labels). The first beast system ensures that partial truth is distributed to the populace to ensure that their worldview and responses are modified. The diet (physical and spiritual) is modified. The beast distracts them with the image ensuring they do not have time because they are so entwined in the image that they cannot find time to use their creative or relational abilities aside from it. Be careful and discerning!
Revelations 13:16-18 says, “ Also it forces everyone — great and small, rich and poor, free and slave — to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead preventing anyone from buying or selling unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This is where wisdom is needed; those who understand should count the number of the beast, for it is the number of a person, and its number is 666.”
The second beast (America and the United Nations) have several tools that can be used to implement this mark. No one knows how this scripture will be appropriated. We should be vigilant and aware of the capabilities in our world, so we can make good decisions. Let me list for you a few different technologies that provide the tracking and implantable capabilities.
- Radio Frequency Identification
- Biometrics Equipment
- DNA modification
- Surgical modification of the body
Currently, our electronic devices track and study our “likes” and “dislikes”. This data helps the one world government leaders to modify their approach to us to make it palatable. Be vigilant! He has a lamb-like veneer, but speaks like a dragon. Watch out.
- Commit to reading and studying your Bible regularly
- When you open your Bible, approach it with the idea, “Maybe the way that I currently live or some things that I may be doing are wrong.”
- Listen when the Holy Spirit convicts you. Do not ignore the Holy Spirit’s voice!
- Modify your ways as your directed.
This approach to Bible reading has changed my life. Hopefully, it will change yours as well.
