What or Who is the Beast having Seven Heads and Ten Horns in Revelation 13?

seven heads and ten horns What or who is the Beast rising from the sea of humanity having seven heads and ten horns? (Rev. 13:1-5) Is it an Empire or Emperor? For a better visual of this, lets put the monster having seven heads and ten horns in a scenario.

It was the worst of times. Calamity plagued the final seven-years of human history. [5] Governments are overwhelmed. Wars and rumors of wars, famines and pestilence, men rioting slaughtering each other. Signs in the sky and quakes in the earth. Even our own technology terrifies us.

25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;
26 “men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of heaven will be shaken. (Lk. 21:25-26 NKJ)

A fleet of UFO’s arrive under the command of a Dragon named Satan (Rev. 12:9-12). They claim to be “the Elohim Creators” ancient man mistook for God. Their scientists had designed all life on planet Earth, just as scientists of another race designed them. This is “scientific atheism”, the infinite cycle of life. [7] Humanity is to join this cycle, brought up to speed so they too could create life on other worlds. [6] This new paradigm upends the historic times and law governing human society (Dan. 7:25).

The Earth mostly embraces the new paradigm, there is a great falling away from all of the world’s religions. Ironically, Creationist Intelligent Design arguments are finally accepted now that “Elohim Scientists” are “the Designers”.

The “man of sin” was already corrupting the Church when they arrived (2Thess. 2:3-4). His name was Adonikam and he worked miracles, preaching prosperity and condoning sin. The already fallen away Church hailed him as “the Christ” who was bringing the church together in ecumenical unity. However, Bible believers called him the “Man of Sin” prophesied to come (2Th. 2:3-4). They warned the signs and wonders he did were “lying” because God does not condone sin (2Th. 2:9-12). These faithful few were despised by everyone.

When Satan and his fallen angels came, Adonikam declared the Kingdom of God had arrived. He embraced their “scientific atheism” revealing he is one of their creations, a hybrid “Elohim-human”.

In globalist ecstasy a version of Ancient Rome ascends from the sea of humanity. The Dragon Commander of the aliens anoint Adonikam as its Chancellor and like the rider on the white horse he conquers the world without using force (Rev. 6:2). Covertly however, three more demon riders go into the earth creating crisis that so overwhelms the earth’s governments resistance largely evaporates.

1 Then I stood[3] on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.
2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.
4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. (Rev. 13:1-5 NKJ)

The Beast having seven heads and ten horns rises from the sea. It is both Empire[1] and Emperor.[2] At first its benign, everyone applauds eastern version of ancient Rome revived. They celebrate rebuilding the ancient city of Babylon using wondrous fallen angel technology. It was to be the capital of the Empire. Babylon the Harlot representing the religious spiritism of the world united all religions within it. New Age Globalists were besides themselves in awe, they began worshiping the New World Order Beast and the Dragon Commander who empowered it.

1 Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.
2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. (Rev. 13:1-3 NKJ)

Five months before the Emperor Adonikam’s Revelation, ghostly demon locusts swarm out of their prison abyss. These spirits of demons were imprisoned there in the days of Noah, some were sent there by Christ (Lk. 8:30-35). Like smoke they blacken the air men breathe. These terrorized and torture only those not having the seal of God on their foreheads, or soon would (Rev. 9:2-6). Only the TARES of Christendom are terrorized and tortured if they show any disloyalty to false Christ as he morphs into the Beast “Son of Destruction”.

So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Rev. 13:1-4 NKJ)

At “mid-week” he declares himself to be a hybrid human creation of the Designers using the seed of Satan, and superior to the Elohim race. That is how he both opposes and exalts himself above all called God or worshiped. He sits in the Church the temple of God, doing signs and wonders showing himself that he is God. (2 Thess. 2:4)

And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. (Rev. 13:5 NKJ)

The Great Tribulation begins, much of the true church is martyred. Advanced technology has made all resistance futile:

If anyone is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if anyone is to be slain with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. (Rev. 13:10 ESV)

Three and a half years after Adonikam’s ascension global sacrifice and offering to anything called God is ended. He declares he is the Seed of Satan and all resisting are slain by the “wing of abominations” that lifts up the Antichrist to rain down desolation upon his enemies (Dan. 9:27). The Ten kings (horns) in Adonikam’s Federation now hate Babylon the Great, Mother of Harlots. She is an anachronism; scientific atheism has contradicted her superstition. Her former lovers have all converted to the 666 religion of the Beast.

The Harlot is not the literal rebuilt city of Babylon (Zech. 5:5-11). The foul waters of spiritism upon which she sits have their source flow from the ancient tower of Babel. Her intoxications led to fornications and abominations that defiled the earth (Rev. 17:1-6). The spiritism she channeled is the mystery of lawlessness inducing delusions. Representing false religion of every sort since ancient Babylon, she is drunk with the blood of God’s saints of ever generation (Rev. 17:6). Her headquarters are in rebuilt city of Babylon, she is riding the Revived Roman Empire of Chancellor Adonikam, having seven heads and ten horns.

The ten kings in the Beast’s Federation order her destroyed (Rev. 17:16-18). Her former lovers now hate her for exploiting them, and burn her with fire (Rev. 18:6-8). The Demons and foul spirits happily dwelling in her branches (Lk. 13:19) did nothing to stop her destruction (Rev. 18:2-7). As this is a total judgment by the Sovereign Lord God, it precedes what will soon happen to the literal rebuilt city of Babylon.

Forces from Babylon’s North, Russia, Iran Turkey and allies try to rebel against the new World Order. They destroy the rebuilt city with the sword (Jer. 50:41-42; 51:47-48). It then goes off into total destruction fulfilling the OT prophecies (Jer. 50:3, 13, 39-40; 51:29). Babylon’s destruction causes global Economic Depression (Rev. 18:11) weakening Emperor Adonikam beast kingdom but it survives the wound.

Then I saw another (243 ἄλλος allos) beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.
12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (Rev. 13:12 NKJ) (Rev. 13:11 NKJ)

John saw “another” (243 ἄλλος allos) [4] “kingdom/king” beast. Therefore, we again turn to Daniel for the key to this symbolism. [3] Just as the two horned Ram in Daniel was two nations united the Medes and Persians (Dan. 8:3, 20), so also this beast with two horns will be two nations that unite in the end time to aid the Revived Roman Empire. Its consistent with Daniel only those nations that specially affect Israel can be candidates.

The alternative, that this is a parody of the Lamb Jesus (Rev. 5:6) is impossible. It’s NOT a lamb, it only looks like one. Moreover, this beast has two horns, not seven and there is no mention of seven eyes. Even the “lamb appearance” is inconsistent with that idea, because at best the reference to Christ is indirect, an “appearance”. Therefore, we will assemble this Jigsaw puzzle correctly so its real picture results.

The kingdoms of Britain and America unite under one False Prophet Prime Minister/President to aid the weakened Emperor. These formerly Christian liberty and free market loving nations now speak as a Dragon, supporting the Totalitarianism of the Beast and a controlled centrally planned economy.

Their combined military frightens Russia and allies to sue for peace and they now submit to the Beast’s Federation.

To combat world Depression and scarce resources the False Prophet ruling Anglo-America deceives the world into greater union. With impressive technology they build the “image of the Beast”, a global quantum computing AI network that when interfaced with Adonikam gives him god-like ability to see and hear anywhere in real time. It’s either “patterned with his personality” or its hologram is Adonikam’s visage or both. Being “alive” it kills all who try to harm it, or not worship the beast:

13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived.
15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. (Rev. 13:13-15 NKJ)

Christians were not harmed by Babylon’s destruction, those still heeding Scripture had come out of her as it commanded (Rev. 18:4). But her destruction also destroyed their political power (Dan. 12:7) to respond to attacks.

Counting from 1260 days (3 ½ years), it takes 30 days to fully set up his idolatrous image or 1290 days. Adonikam is interfaced to a “living” quantum computing network that streams visual and audio data from every connected device in real time. Adonikam is now like God, almost impossible to hide from him. Being off the grid hiding in the wilderness is still visible to his satellites. Through his network he can slay all who refuse to worship.

8 And another angel followed, saying, “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she has made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.”
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.
13 Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write:`Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.'” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.” (Rev. 14:8-13 NKJ)

For 45 days the Great Tribulation rages against the children of Lady Zion the church. Then on the 1,335th day, the church is raptured:

14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in Your sickle and reap, for the time has come for You to reap, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.”
16 So He who sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. (Rev. 14:14-16 NKJ)

The TARES of Christendom didn’t save themselves by converting to the 666 Beast. The four Kings of the Nephlim dispatch a 200 million demon Calvary that slays the third of the earth’s population that once declared itself Christian (Rev. 9:14-19). So great was Satan’s hatred against YHWH God, Father Son and Holy Spirit.

Incredibly, the rest of mankind weren’t worried Satan’s betrayal could have them his next targets. They continued their idolatries unaffected:

20 But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons, and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone, and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk.
21 And they did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts. (Rev. 9:20-21 NKJ)

666 became the swastika of the new religion of Adonikam. He specifically targets YHWH God of his Jewish forefathers, blaspheming Him and all the host of heaven as a weak faction of the Elohim race. Pompously he boasted the combined forces of the Dragon Commander and the Beast could easily defeat them.

End Notes
[1]
John provides the interpretive key, “the Sea”. That alludes to the “Great Sea” the Mediterranean. From whence four beasts came in Daniel 7:2-8. The first two beasts have one head each, the third beast has four heads, that totals 6 heads. Therefore, the head of the fourth beast is the seventh head (Dan. 7:2-7). The final form of the empire (eighth king Rev. 17:11) is the Grecian Roman Empire is the final ten-horned ten-toed form (Dan. 2:44; 7:7) containing the rebuilt city of Babylon.

Confirming Revelation’s end time Roman Empire Beast having seven heads and ten horns is a composite of Daniel’s last beast, the same animals leading up to it are in both. But notice the order of appearance is reversed, in Daniel its lion, bear then a leopard. In Revelation its leopard, bear then a lion. This confirms they are not the same beast. Unlike Daniel’s seven successive kingdoms rising from the sea, John’s Beast rises from the sea a single kingdom FROM them. Therefore, the ten horned version of Daniel’s fourth beast, is the John’s beast having seven heads and ten horns.

But a clue many miss is the different list of kingdoms the angel uses in Revelation 17:10. The count does not begin with Babylon (Dan. 2:38; 7:4), it begins with the Medes and Persians (Daniel 8:3, 9-12). Therefore, the wounded head (Ancient Babylon) “was and is not” (in ruins) and is healed (restored in the Grecian Roman Empire) and so “of the seven” but itself is an eighth king (Rev. 17:11).

9 “Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits,
10 and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while.
11 “And the beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth, and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction. (Rev. 17:9-11 NAS)

There are seven kings, five have fallen:
1) Medes Persians;
2-4) Grecian = 2) (Seleucus) Syria; 3) (Ptolemy) Egypt; 4) (Cassander) Macedonia;
5) Lysimachus) Asia Minor.
6) One is” Rome;
7) Britain whose mandate over Palestine was only a short while. The Balfour Declaration supported the establishment of Israel but Britain’s mandate over Palestine was short lived. This is consistent with Scripture listing only nations that impacted Israel in a meaningful way. The League of Nations/United Nations isn’t a kingdom and never did anything binding. America makes her appearance with Britain as the Beast with two horns like a lamb.
8) The Eighth King is the Grecian (leopard body=Syria) form of the Revived Roman Empire that has the rebuilt ancient city of Babylon as its capital.

[2]

The beast is both Empire and the Emperor of the Revived Roman Empire. He has a mouth to speak (Rev. 13:5) and receives worship (Rev. 13:8). John says the Beast’s number is the “number of a man” (Rev. 13:18).

Like before (Rev. 13:1-8) John doesn’t pause when his focus shifts from the (2342 θηρίον) beast/kingdom to the king of it, for “the remainder of this pericope (Rev. 13:11–18), it/he is referred to only by a series of eight third-person singular verbs (Rev.13:11[2x]; Rev. 13:12[2x]; Rev. 13:13[2x]; Rev. 13:14, 16) and two occurrences of the pronoun αὐτός (Rev. 13::14, 15). This figure is elsewhere referred to as the “false prophet” (Rev. 16:13; 19:20; 20:10), which clearly conveys the role the author assigns him.-Aune, D. E. (1998). Revelation 6–16 (Vol. 52B, p. 755). Dallas: Word, Incorporated.

Daniel provides the interpretive keys for Revelation. In Daniel the same beast is identified both as “king” and “kingdom” (Dan. 7:17, 23).

[3]
Revelation 13:1 “And I stood (estathen)” is read “He stood (estathe)” if the “n” is missing.

[Revelation] 12:18 καὶ ἐστὰθη (and he stood) {B}

The reading καὶ ἐστὰθη has excellent manuscript support. Since Jesus is mentioned last in v. 17, it may be best to make explicit that the subject of the verb is the dragon, and not Jesus, as is done in NIV and TEV (similarly NRSV and FC): “And the dragon stood.” The Textus Receptus, in agreement with numerous witnesses, reads Καὶ ἐστὰθην (I stood), preceded by a full stop; that is, καὶ ἐστὰθην is connected to 13:1. This variant reading appears to have arisen when copyists changed the third person verb to the first person to agree with the following first person singular verb εἶδον (I saw). NJB follows the variant reading: “And I took my stand on the seashore.”-Omanson, R. L., & Metzger, B. M. (2006). A Textual Guide to the Greek New Testament: an adaptation of Bruce M. Metzger’s Textual commentary for the needs of translators (p. 536). Stuttgart: Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft.

That unsound conclusion illustrates why I always accept the Textus Receptus as the better reading. “I stood upon the sand of the sea” is a clear allusion to Daniel’s vision (Dan. 7:2-3) that is lost completely if its Satan standing like a tourist with John on the beach. Without John’s biblical allusion to the interpretive key in Daniel the symbolism in this chapter becomes incomprehensible (Dan. 7:1-28).

allos (ἄλλος, 243) and heteros (ἕτερος, 2087) have a difference in meaning, which despite a tendency to be lost, is to be observed in numerous passages. Allos expresses a numerical difference and denotes “another of the same sort”; heteros expresses a qualitative difference and denotes “another of a different sort.”-Vine, W. E., Unger, M. F., & White, W., Jr. (1996). Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words (Vol. 2, p. 29). Nashville, TN: T. Nelson.

[5]
There is a special end time “week” that is seven years long (day = year) during which Antichrist and Christ battle. The “times of the Gentiles” separate Daniel’s contiguous Seventy weeks (Lk. 21:24. Dan. 9:24-26) from this end time week of the Antichrist (Dan. 9:27). Confirming it is seven years long, God’s two witnesses preach 3.5 years until killed by the ascending Beast (Rev. 11:7. Dan. 9:27). He rules an additional 3.5 years (Rev. 13:5). That totals seven years.

[6]
Scriptural premises make this scenario likely.

Only Satan or Extraterrestrial Aliens could generate the overwhelming evidence UFOs are real. Extraterrestrials Aliens don’t exist. Therefore, Satan is generating the delusion UFOs are real.

Atheism preaching Extraterrestrials would be the most likely cause of a Universal Revolt against belief in God. While the definite article “the Apostasy” implies a “great revolt”, its the effect of events on “all called God or worshiped” (2Thess. 2:4) that requires this is a global revolt against theism.

Scripture reveals Satan is a tactician. He has reasons for what he does. Therefore, there is a reason why he has spent so much time and energy instilling belief in UFOs, which has been the only accomplishment of the phenomena so far. It follows Satan uses that “inspired delusion” [that God “sent” by lifting His restraint on spiritism (2Thess. 2:7-12. Rev. 9:1-3; 12:12)] to convince the earth join him at Armageddon to fight God (Rev. 16:13-14). The obvious interpretation of this, the “inspired BIG LIE” false prophecy deceiving the earth is a “flying frog UFO delusion.” Therefore, the most likely cause of a sudden global rejection of Theism would be the arrival of atheist preaching Extraterrestrials.

While I have not surveyed other UFO cults, I felt no need to. Satan revealed enough of his strategy to “Rael”. He redefines “Elohim” as “extraterrestrial” and overlays that upon Scripture to destroy its authority. The Satanic character of the eisegesis is evident in its following the technique Satan invented in the Garden of Eden. Cast doubt upon the meaning of God’s Word and then misdirect attention to what he is suggesting (Gen. 3:1-6. 2Th. 2:10-11).

Satan is the great “ape” of God, desiring to be God. As God heralds His coming with prophets and signs, so would Satan. The appearance of the “prophet” Rael and signs of Extraterrestrial visitation conditioning mankind to reject belief in God may indicate Satan believes the End is near. Whether he is guessing right or not has yet to be determined. Satan studies scripture to know what the future brings just like the rest of us (1Peter 1:12).

Therefore, after much deliberation I conclude the UFO cult of Raelism is the tool Satan uses for his coming BIG LIE. Of course “Rael” and followers were deceived as to the events that would follow their arrival. That is revealed fully in Scripture alone. Hopefully, I have discerned some of the prophecy correctly in this blog. Time will tell.

Warning to Researchers in Raelism, satanic telepathic suggestion (Lk. 8:12. 2Cor. 4:3-4) and “confirmation bias” makes Satan’s eisegesis of scripture powerful persuasion, to the uncritical, disloyal and unfaithful. Only those confident Scripture is 100% correct and strong in faith should engage (2Tim. 3:16-17).

Bible Verses About Aliens or Angels?

Christian researchers are urged to familiarize themselves with Scott Adams theory of human perception illustrated in his book Win Bigly: Persuasion in a world where facts don’t matter”. It illustrates how easily mass delusions form. For example, “Confirmation Bias” is the best explanation for the mass delusion evolution created life on earth.

But Scott takes his theory too far suggesting no one can distinguish truth from delusion. He includes himself in that assessment. While I agree his secular world view is delusional, technological success contradicts his idea we cannot discern reality. Nothing results from manipulating delusions. Moreover, we can think critically to sound conclusions, distinguishing truth from falsehood. Contrary to Scott’s assessment, Christianity is not a delusion (John 16:13. 2Thess. 2:13-15. 1 John 2:20, 27). With that caveat, I highly recommend his book. Its an eye-opener explanation of mass delusion and the derangement we often see in society.

I have selected from Raelism only what is pertinent to the coming Great Revolt. I am certain events will unfold precisely as scripture predicts, not Rael. Nothing in my blog supports or condones Raelism.

Everything in my blog is consistent with belief in Sola Scriptura and the inerrancy of God’s Word. In fact, if I didn’t believe scripture is true revelation of the future, none of this would exist.

Bertrand Russel’s infinite regression argument is contradicted by Scripture’s representation of God as Infinite (1 Kings 8:27). That is an incompatible property pertinent to the proposition regression to something greater always occurs. Nothing greater than infinite YHWH is possible. As for “scientific atheism”, as B. Russel insisted, regression from finite creatures to something greater must occur. Logically therefore, regression continues until the infinite is met. Therefore, the “aliens” are liars. Infinite God must begin the cycle of life.
