The beast is a secular concept. The beasts of Daniel's prophesy are empires for example the Roman empire. From memory you get the iron of the image being near the bottom of the idol. Rome's "beastly" feature is seen in the method of administering the death penalty, crucifixion. True the church of Rome has displayed features that may be described as beastly, that is having no conscience of evil in burning people at the stake. This is wickedness seen in the power of heretical religion. For example in establishing a priesthood without any authority from God so that the authority must therefore be of Satan. Aldred
Replying to William Anthony Dlubak's comment about the Antichrist. Can you please show me where the Antichrist is mentioned in Revelation??? The Bible I read has absolutely NOTHING about an 'Antichrist' ANYWHERE in Revelation. Do I have a bad version???
The disciples of John thought the antichrist would be from the Jews. I think they connected it with the little horn which ripped up the 3 other horns which they believed would be Egypt, Assyria and Libya. I think they believed the antichrist would be from the Jews cause he would be claiming to be the Christ, therefore would have to be from the Jews.
Those disciples were trained by John and were martyrs. I doubt they would teach anything even speculating contrary to what John taught them.
As Scripture states, Elohims thoughts are so far above ours. A.J. is correct. We must trust in God's plan, live a pious life, finish the race and keep the faith. We are ALL very acceptable to error. We must love God with all our mind, body and strength, and love each other as we love ourselves. Whatever God's Will is, ours also must be. We must be of ONE mind, body and spirit and put our TOTAL trust in His Plan. We know what to look for and beware of through Yeshua's warnings. May God's Shalom be with you ALL...
