Many nations make the image to the beast; therefore it cannot be a low tech idol. It is a “living” Artificial Intelligence able to defend itself, killing anyone who tries to disconnect.
14 And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
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. (Rev. 13:14-15 KJV)
An image for the monster. The dative is used, not the genitive, “an image for the monster” rather than “of the monster.”- (2008). Revelation: introduction, translation, and commentary (Vol. 38, p. 214). New Haven; London: Yale University Press.
The nations are deceived into making this image, “deception” (4105 πλανάω planao) required to overcome fear of tyranny an AI Network controlling the global economy made possible. Interfaced with the AI, Adonikam the Beast can see and hear everything near a connected device in real time as though he were God Himself. Like an artificial life-form, the Network can defend itself successfully against attacks.

The AI is patterned in the image of the Beast, his evil personality governs it. Its Icon (1504 εἰκών eikon) is the image of the Beastly Empire or Beast Emperor or both. Likely it doubles as “the Mark of the Beast” or is part of it.
Like the Swastika was in Nazi Germany, it will be everywhere. Everyone will know it proclaims rebellion against Yahweh God, no one was deceived into receiving the mark. They rejoice in the delusion they can defeat Yahweh! Like the Days of Noah (Mt. 24:37-39), Nephilim Fallen Angels and Man conspire against Yahweh hoping to seduce His sons and daughters (Gen. 6:1-5; Mk. 9:42-49). Therefore, the worst punishment is reserved for them:
9 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand,
10 “he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
11 “And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.”
12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. (Rev. 14:9-12 NKJ)
Under the guise of fairly distributing earth’s scarce resources, nations were deceived in creating this monster and now all must worship Adonikam or they cannot buy or sell.
16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads,
17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Rev. 13:16-17 NKJ)
If it were not for the economic collapse that occurred when rebuilt Babylon was destroyed (Rev. 18:11), its unlikely even the signs and wonders accomplished by the Anglo-American False Prophet could have convinced the nations give control of their economies to Emperor Adonikam. But during times of great crisis such radical changes can occur.
