Find out how the Beast with seven heads and ten horns was formed. Was
the Beast a combination of animals or was it human beings in animal form? Is the Beast the same as Antichrist or is it different from Antichrist? Are we going to see a Beast with seven heads and ten horns or is it a metaphor?
Who is this Beast or what do we mean by “The first Beast?” This term the first Beast needs an explanation, so that people will understand it because we believe it is figures of speech. We have to explain the Beast or the first Beast plainly.
Read this blog and also obtain the eBook titled “Rapture: the Past, Present and What to Expect in the Future”.
This book has most of the questions you might ask about the Beast or the Antichrist, and also the relevant answers thereto. Let’s begin to read from the book of Daniel who first saw four great Beasts which were diverse one from the other in Dan.7:1-7. And then we try and read from Apostle John’s revelation, who saw the same Beast after its formation in Revelation Rev. 13:1-2 coming from the Sea, read:
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a Beast rise out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns. And upon his horns ten corns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy”.
In Dan. 7:4-7 the Beasts here were called “horns” and in Rev. 13:1-2, the Bible showcases a Beast with seven heads and ten horns coming from the Sea, now completed. This Beast is actually the one thought to be the Antichrist, the one who would blaspheme God and the dwellers in heaven at the great tribulation Period. He would also oppose or be against the Church of Christ in the last days. These four Beasts represented authorities which we called “the World Powers” in the book of Rapture. The World Powers were known in the Bible as “the kings of the earth”, they were seven in number Ps.2:2 and Rev. 17:10.
If we ask you today who are the world Powers you will quickly answer “France, Germany, China, or even Britain” etc. Your answers might stem from the fact that these Nations have developed one nuclear energy or some biological or chemical weapons. But I assure you with clarity that they are not World Powers. World powers were the Nations or the kings of those nations which held God’s own people Israel in one captivity or the other, these are world Powers.
And they are seven in number according to Rev 17″10 as we said earlier, but six out the seven handled Israel badly. starting with Egypt. Name them 1. Egypt, 2. Assyria, 3. Babylon, 4. Persia, 5. Greece and 6. Rome. This was how they made their captivities on Israel in chronological order. We will now show details from the formation, while more explanation will be obtained from the book of Rapture. It is imperative we know that the book of Daniel goes hand in hand with the book of Revelation. Let’s continue.
THE FIRST BEAST IN THE FORMATION: Dan.7:4; Rev. 13:1-2.
These Beasts were figuratively identified with their actions or performances during their individual governments. Lion was the first in the formation and it represented the Nation or king of Babylon, in the person of Nebuchadnezzar. He acted or behaved as an animal (a Lion) which shows no mercy to its victims. Of course you know that Lion does not have human feeling. He threw the three Hebrew boys into fire for failure to worship “the human image” he erected, and by so doing he became an animal. Let us continue with what Daniel saw in his night visions.
“I saw in my visions by night, and behold the four winds of heaven strove upon the great Sea. Four great Beasts came up from the Sea diverse one from the other. The first was like a Lion and had eagle’s wings. I beheld till the wings were plucked and was lifted up from the earth, and was made to stand on its feet as a man. Man’s heart was given to it” Dan. 7:4.
Now observe these descriptions, “the four winds” means “the Cardinal points or the four geographical locations of the world”. The East, 2. The West, 3. The North and 4. The South of the world. It means each Beast represented each geographical point or each part of the world. So it is a world event and no part of the world shall be exempted. Again “the great Sea” means the People/s of the world. No racial discrimination will be involved or observed in the whole exercise. “Four great Beasts” means “the four kings” which were drafted into the master plan of the program, or that appeared in the master plan of the Beast kingdom, which were 1. Gold, 2. Silver,3.Bronze and 4. Iron. Detail in the book of Rapture.
THE FIRST BEAST WAS LIKE A LION: The first Beast in the master plan was the gold and Lion champion in the person of Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon being the only man whose heart was changed for all the beasts. He was also driven to the bush for seven years like an animal. When he came for the formation, it was a Lion that came and it was given the heart of man and was made to stand on its feet as a man. Now lion as the king of all animals believes no other could arouse or terrify it. Lion roars and boasts Prov. 30:30. He boasted to the three boys, asking them “who is that God that can deliver you from my hands”? Dan. 3:15. He also beat all and carried gold in the competitions, see football and world cup as a metaphor in the book of Rapture.
He laid the foundation for all other animals to follow in the program. He was a Beast because of his action. He cast the three Hebrew boys into naked fire without the feeling that they were human beings like him. It may surprise you why he figured out as Gold. In every competition, Gold is the first desire of Nations which gather for the game, but eventually it will be taken by the strongest team. And the same thing happens with Lion as a Champion of other animals. In the explanation of Nebuchadnezzar’s first dream, Daniel informed him saying, “Thou art the head of Gold” Dan. 2:38, in the master plan. So the first Beast was a man whose heart was changed. He was then driven to the bush for seven years and he was operating in the bush with the heart of a beast, is God not wonderful?.
He had boasted in two separate occasions, 1. in Dan.3:15 i.e against Hannaniah, Mishael and Azariah and 2 in Dan. 4:30 at his Palace in Babylon when he watched his (Hanging Gardens), which made it possible for him to be driven to the bush. Yet this Gardens were built for him by the people of Israel in his captivity. Sending him to the bush was not ordinary; he was fighting a war for his kingdom. You must know that there is a war between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan. Many Pastors are not seeing it that way. Some believe he was just lifting himself up ordinarily, no.
It is the reason they say they will run away or that they shall be taken in the Rapture before the coming of Antichrist or before the great tribulation. So Lion was coming to the formation with one head, and that was the head of a lion in Rev.13:1-2. It will be the mouth which shall boast again at the great tribulation and also the mouth that shall blaspheme the dwellers in heaven at that period.
Yes because the Bible says it was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies Rev. 13:5. And by his qualification and position he stood at the meeting point waiting for other Beasts to come for the joining with his own head. With the head of the Lion we have counted one head of the Beasts. One head for now. Expect to see other posts where the seven heads would complete.
