2. The Two Beasts
a. The Beast out of the Sea -- Antichrist
1 And I saw a 1abeast coming up out of the 2bsea, having 3cten horns and dseven heads, and on his horns ten diadems, and on his heads enames of 4blasphemy.
2 And the beast which I saw was 1like a aleopard, and his feet like those of a bbear, and his mouth like the mouth of a clion. And the ddragon egave him his 2power and his fthrone and great gauthority.
3 And 1one of his heads was as it were slain to death, and his death stroke was healed. And the whole earth amarveled after the beast.
4 And they worshipped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they aworshipped the beast, saying, Who is like the beast? And who can make war with him?
5 And there was given to him a mouth aspeaking great things and blasphemies, and authority was given to him to act for 1bforty-two months.
6 And he opened his mouth for blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His atabernacle, which tabernacle in heaven.
7 And permission was given to him to make awar with the 1saints and to overcome them; and authority was given to him over every tribe and people and tongue and nation.
8 And all those adwelling on the earth will worship him, every one whose name is not 1bwritten in the 2cbook of life of the dLamb who was slain efrom the foundation of the world.
9 If anyone has an aear, let him hear.
10 If anyone is for captivity, into captivity he goes; if anyone akills with the sword, with the sword he is to be killed. Here is the bendurance and the cfaith of the 1saints.
