The Two Beasts

This video is part 9 of the Revelation Simplified video series. It explains how Revelation 13 describes two aspects of the Babylonian Beast (or the two beasts). The first beast is a democratic government beast which rises out of the sea (people), otherwise known as a one-world government. The second beast is an official government (states-sponsored) religion which rises from the land, otherwise known as a one-world religion.

Babylonian statue of Daniel 2

We will start by reviewing the Babylonian beast statue of Daniel chapter 2 and what each part of this statue represents, from the Babylonian head of gold to the feet of iron mixed with clay. We will explain why the concept of Democracy is very important to understand as a Babylonian, Roman-Greco, system introduced by Esau (or the red horse).

  1. Babylon (rabbis)
  2. Medo-Persia
  3. Greece (Democracy)
  4. Rome (Democracy)
  5. Roman Christianity & Islam (Democracy)

Babylonian Democractic system

We will how the system of Democracy is a red-horse system in which Satan is in charge of, in the spiritual realm. We will see that Democracy is based upon a concept of ‘the people’s rule’ by majority, rather than the concept of a kingship and priesthood leading the people according to Yahweh’s commandments. And we will see why, contrary to what a lot of well-meaning Christians think, this ‘do as thou wilt’ concept is in opposition Yahweh’s system. As well as why any kingdom following this Babylonian system will eventually fall.

Mattityahu (Matthew) 12:25-26
25 But yeshua knew their thoughts, and said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.”

The Two Beasts

The first beast (one-world government)

We will talk about the ten toes of the statue and the 10 super-nations. We will see how we know this governmental system resembles Greece, Medo-Persia, and Babylon, based upon Daniel chapters 2 and 7, and how it is the dragon (Satan) that gives this beast its power, seat, and great authority. We will see that those whose’ names were not written in the Lamb’s book of Life from the foundation of the world will worship this beast (or this governmental system), and why it is crucial for us to know what this governmental system is so that we are not found doing so.

Hitgalut (Revelation) 13:1-2
1  Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a [Babylonian, democratic] beast rising up out of the sea [people, democracy], having seven heads and ten horns [powers], and on his horns ten crowns [kingdoms], and on his heads a blasphemous name. 
2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard [Greece], his feet were like the feet of a bear [Medo-Persia], and his mouth like the mouth of a lion [Babylon]. The dragon [Satan] gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 

The second beast (one-world religion)

We will see that, while we read of the two beasts in Revelation chapter 13, the second beast is actually the same beast, only described from a different aspect. We will explain that this is a state-sponsored religion.

Hitgalut (Revelation) 13:11-12 
11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth [government religion], and he had two horns like a lamb [Catholicism and Islam] and spoke like a dragon Satan]. 
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. 

We will talk about all this and more in this segment on the two beasts of Revelation.
