The first person you see is the beast, because you came out of your body and looked at it.. and it looked like a beast to you... (because it is).. many people experience this... this isn't 'new' .. or original..
to me it sounds like you're jumbling a bunch of entangible concepts with tangible happenings.. some dogmatics beliefs mixed in with tangible things.. You need to get things straight in your noggin and decide between tangible and entangible, and the proceedures(sp?) and results from both sets of 'concepts'..

18This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666.
It would seem that with the Horrific numbers below, that a system of trade that causes strife is in effect and the Beast of Greed and War is alive and well...
600 Million Homeless
60 Million Starve every year
6 Million of them are Children
I am one that has been Given a name of the white Stone.
If you are marked by the Beast...
"There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name."
Are you sleeping?
And I saw what looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and over the number of his name.
He doenst last too long...
After all..if God is with you...who can be against you!!
"Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit. 44He who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed."
The Stone that the Builders rejected becomes the Capstone.
The Beast and the Prince of this World already stand condemmed..was it not written?

You say you're a Christian, but this phrase blows the main thrust of Christianity out the window. If Christ wasn't the sacrifice for sin then you may as well throw your Bible away, because all that is said in it is a waste of paper.
'For when David had served God's purpose in his own generation, he fell asleep; he was buried with his fathers and his body decayed. But the one whom God raised from the dead did not see decay. Therefore, my brothers, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. Through him everyone who believes is justified from everything you could not be justified from by the law of Moses.' Acts 13:36-39 (NIV)
'But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.' Romans 3:21-26 (NIV)

Paul was locked up because he was preaching the word of God, not because he was being punished for his sins.
You certainly did see 'The Beast' in your vision, and his name is Lucifer. I'll pray for you to see the light and realise that your sins are already forgiven if you take Christ as your Saviour.
