| The Scarlet Beast is
identified as a NATION. The bible tells us that the seven heads of the
Beast are 7 SEQUENTIAL KINGDOMS or NATIONS. The Scarlet Beast
carries the woman Babylon the Great on its heads.
And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns.
For more information about the woman that rides the Scarlet Beast see the file Babylon the Great.
People who admire the Scarlet Beast are not Christians -- they are not written in the book of life; similar to the people who admire its final leader (the Leopard Beast) which are not written in the book of life either.
The eighth kingdom of the Scarlet Beast which comes OUT OF THE ABYSS is the one in power when God's Two Witnesses are preaching.
When they [TWO WITNESSES] have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up OUT OF THE ABYSS will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them.
This eight kingdom (nation) that comes OUT OF THE ABYSS makes war with God's Two Witnesses and overcomes them.
The ten horns, though, are subservient kings/nations to the Scarlet Beast.
the ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the [Scarlet] beast for one hour. These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the [Scarlet] beast.
These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.
tells us that the 10 horns are 10 kings who
receive authority WITH the Scarlet Beast.
First notice what is mentioned
about the 10 HORNS:
1 They are 10 kings.
2 Unlike the 7 heads/kingdoms which were sequential, the 10 horns/kings are NOT sequential.
3 They receive authority WITH the beast (the last 8th kingdom) and only for a short time (one hour).
4 The 10 horns/kings hate the harlot who rides the Scarlet Beast and burn her with fire.
5 The 10 horns wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb overcomes them. Therefore, these 10 horns/kings share power with the beast at the time Jesus returns to earth to start his millennial rule. See more about this in the file Battle of Armageddon.
The ten horns (subordinate nations) have a common purpose with the beast -- they go to the Battle of Armageddon.
God says this beast (nation) goes to destruction -- an event that is not too far away. Remember:
"The beast which was and is not, is himself also an EIGHTH and is out of the seven, and he goes to destruction
The Scarlet Beast is the most influential and powerful human government at the time Jesus returns to this earth. This government will be totally destroyed at the Battle of Armageddon. The last human leader of the Scarlet Beast, as we mentioned, is identified as the Leopard Beast.
The Leopard Beast is identified as a MAN. Please understand that the LEOPARD BEAST is the last ruler of the scarlet beast. He is the one in power when Christ comes for the Battle of Armageddon. After that the LEOPARD BEAST is taken and thrown in the lake of fire.
666 is the unique ID of the Leopard Beast. This is similar to a driver's license in that every person has a different number.
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. And he opened his MOUTH in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
Notice that this Leopard Beast has a mouth. The Bible says "speaking great things," which means this man has good communication skills. That is probably why he convinces the masses to vote for him which allows him to be elected by popular vote. Notice that he is not a Christian. The Bible says he speaks blasphemies against God.
And it was given unto him to make war with the SAINTS, and to overcome them: and there was given to him authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation.
The Leopard Beast persecutes Christians, but remember he is very sneaky like a leopard. A leopard often stalks its prey under the cover of night; it does not attack out in the open like a lion. The Leopard Beast will probably eliminate Christians in a stealthy manner. This is to keep his prey from running away. For example, the Leopard Beast could monitor internet use to persecute Christians without them knowing that they are being stalked.
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.
Even though the Leopard Beast is an evil man, great crowds are mesmerized by him. These groups of people, though, are not really Christians, as the bible tells us they *are not written in the book of life."
If any man have 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.
This means we are not supposed to attack back the Leopard Beast, but to run away. That is how the prey escapes from a leopard. This is important because God says: "If any man have an ear let him hear."
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he speaks as a dragon. 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.
After the Leopard Beast (man) is injured almost to death, a second beast (man) rises. This new one looks like a lamb, but speaks as a dragon. It reminds me of a wolf wearing sheep's clothing.
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 him that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
These two MEN force people to get an evil ID known as the Mark of the Beast.Revelation 16:13-14
And the [Leopard] beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast ALIVE into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
The demise of these two MEN --the Leopard Beast and the False Prophet-- is at the Battle of Armageddon when Jesus Christ throws them alive into the lake of fire.
