There are actually 2 beasts in Revelation in which satan will be the evil spirit behind the evil works. You have the unholy evil trinity.
The identity of the 2 beasts must first be established. I don't think they will be a political figure, rather, a religious head because it demands
worship and it demands the world to make a graven image (idol) of the first beast for everyone to bow down and worship. This is all religious in
The 2nd beast will have power and all authority of the first beast. The 2nd beast will do the work of first beast as his substitute or in place of the
first beast. He can do supernatural miraculous feats, great signs, and even causing fire to come down from heaven.
"Substitute" or "in place of" or "on behalf of" in Latin is VICAR. The 2nd beast will be the VICAR of the first beast. So, we have a clue of the
2nd beast - "VICAR".
Revelation 13 - NIV
11 Then I saw another beast, coming out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like a dragon. 12 He exercised all the authority
of the first beast on his behalf,
and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed. 13 And he
performed great and miraculous signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to earth in full view of men.
Who is the first beast?
Revelation 17 - RSV
8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is to ascend from the bottomless pit
and go to perdition;
This first beast will ascend from the bottomless pit or a pit without a bottom and it doesn't come from Earth. He does not belong here. People will
wonder with awe at the coming of the first beast.
Revelation 17 - NIV
8 The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose
names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast,
What we learn here is that this first beast will come out of a bottomless pit, some sort of a portal, a great sign and wonder in heaven, and the whole
world will be astonished at his coming. He will come with great signs and wonders, and miracles in which he endowed the 2nd beast with his powers and
all authority to do on his behalf. The 2nd beast will be his Vicar.
Now, when the first beast comes, where does he go from there? We read:
Matthew 24 - NIV
23 At that time if anyone says to you, 'Look, here is the Christ!'
or, 'There he is!' do not believe it. 24 For false Christs and false
prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect--if that were possible. 25 See, I have told you ahead of time. 26
"So if anyone tells you, 'There he is, out in the desert,' do not go out; or, 'Here he is, in the inner rooms,' do not believe
We have a clue now. This first beast is non other than the false messiah, the false Christ that will sit in the inner rooms of the temple of
Jerusalem. To get an idea what the inner rooms, the holy of holies, looks like, view this video:
So, when he sits in the inner room of the temple, what does he say? We read:
2 Thessalonians 2 - NIV
3 Don't let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man
doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in
God's temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
The first beast will claim to be God himself, saying "I am the Christ" and will deceive many.
Now, since this first beast, the false Christ will sit in the temple in Jerusalem, what temple is this? We read:
Orthodox Judaism believes in the rebuilding of a Third Temple and the resumption of sacrificial worship, although there is disagreement about
how rebuilding should take place or exactly what kind of worship will occur. Orthodox authorities generally believe that rebuilding should occur in
the era of the Jewish Messiah at the hand of Divine Providence, although a minority position, following the opinion of Maimonides, holds that Jews
should endeavor to rebuild the temple themselves, whenever possible. Orthodox authorities generally predict the resumption of the complete
traditional system of sacrifices, but some authorities have disagreed. It has traditionally been assumed that some sort of animal sacrifices would be
reinstituted, in accord with the rules in Leviticus and the Talmud. This belief is embedded in Orthodox liturgy.
This is the new third temple in Jerusalem that will be rebuild in order to resume the animal sacrifices. When this false Christ comes, he will sit in
this newly build temple and proclaim himself to be "God and Christ".
So, clearly we have the identity of the first beast and its non other than an impostor of Jesus Christ or the Son of God. The 2nd beast will be his
Vicar. In Latin it is "Vicarius Filii Dei" or "In substitute of the Son of God" or "Vicarius Christi" or In substitute of Christ.
Who has this title?
Figure it out.
Watch out for Israel's plan to rebuild the new 3rd temple of Jerusalem. When it is finished and the daily sacrifice begins, count 3.5 years, and then
this false messiah comes. He will abolish the daily sacrifice because since he will claim to be Jesus Christ, there is no need for the animal
sacrifices ritual within the temple because it is just a foreshadowing of the sacrifice Jesus made for the sins of the world - Hebrews 10:10-18.
He will confirm a covenant with many for one 'seven.' In the middle of the 'seven' he will put an end to sacrifice and offering.
The main reason for this covenant since the building of the 3rd temple on the temple mount where the Al Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock are
located, Muslims around the world will be so enraged and a possible Jihad war will ensue. This covenant will help pacify the conflict between Israel
and the Muslims nations, and written in the covenant is the rebuilding of the 3rd temple and the resumption of the sacrifice.
