In the Spirit “beast” can either be “God’s instrument of judgment” as in Rev 13:1, “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 heads ten crowns and upon the heads the names of blasphemy” or a “false prophet” as in Jude 10, “But these speak evil of those things which they know not, but what they know naturally (carnally or fleshly), as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.” In light of this spiritual understanding Rev 13:11 and following reads:
And I beheld another beast (the false prophet, the antichristos) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as the drakon (this beast, God’s instrument of judgment, spoke as the drakon). And he (the false prophet) exerciseth all the power of the first beast (God’s instrument of judgment) before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast (God’s instrument of judgment), whose deadly wound was healed. And he (the false prophet) doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 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 (God’s instrument of judgment); saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image for the beast (God’s instrument of judgment), which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he (the false prophet) had power to give life unto the image of the beast (God’s instrument of judgment), that the image of the beast (God’s instrument of judgment) should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast (God’s instrument of judgment) should be killed. And he (the false prophet) causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads, and that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number (age) of the beast (God’s instrument of judgment): for it is the number of a man (the false prophet. The only witness to the number of man in the Old Testament is the age of a man. Let it be so!) ; and his number is six hundred threescoreand six. The age of the false prophet and the age of the beast (God’s instrument of judgment are one and the same.)
I hate the deeds of those who follow Billy Graham, says Yeshua the Mashiach! Maranatha!
And in another place:
“And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast (God’s instrument of judgment) and his image, and receive mark in his forehead (with intent), or in his hand (or purchased), The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast (God’s instrument of judgment) and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed [are] the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.”
