About the Antichrist, there is many "an" antichrists but there is only one "the" Antichrist and Rev. 13:11 through 18 is he, Satan. The first
beast also has 7 heads and 10 horns but appears as a leopard like beast. This is an image, likeness of the Great Red Dragon who has 7 heads and 10
Re 13:1 ¶ And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten
crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Verse 2 reveals it is the "dragon" that gives it "His" Power, Seat and Great Authority.
Re 13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the
dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
Next find the beast of Rev. 13:11 whom we saw come up and then in verse 15 He is the one who gives the first beast of the Chap. "life".
Re 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would
not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
If you followed that out you see we have identified "the" Antichrist", Satan the father of all the under antichrists. He, Satan is the "666".
The under ones are of their father the devil.
Joh 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
I try to make it short and sweet but still clear I hope to all believers of His Word.
