All agree must be some great impostor, who under a pretence of religion, shall deceive the souls of men....The power which he exercises to draw men off from worshipping the true God to worship those who by nature are no gods....By doing great miracles>>>God sometimes permits his enemies to do things that seem very wonderful, and by which many unwary persons may be deluded.

When you read Revelation, read the book of Daniel along with it.

Daniel will show you that animals (as the ones in the dreams he interpreted) are symbolic of other things, not necessarily just men. They can also represent kingdoms. The horns MAY very likely indicate 2 rulers in that kingdom which is the beast. They could also represent two eras of that kingdom. Theres a lot of symbolism to prophetic scripture which is what makes it so confusing.

Well, he is a beast and he traffics in counterfeiting. "Horns like a lamb". Satan's agents are able to pass themselves off as messengers of light. But his speech betrays him-as a tool of Satan. He pretends meekness and humility as a lamb, but in actuality is a masterpiece of the devil. He is stationed in Jerusalem [2 Thess. 2:4]. With the help of his Superior, he can command universal compliance with his demands.

The horns represents the 'power' and 'persuasiveness' of one who presents himself as messiah, and deliverer.

Aka, you're right about that. Too many people are looking for signs....

Mat 16:2 He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.

Mat 16:3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky, but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

Mat 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign, and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas.

Aka, yes, that's fine. Revelation is interesting but I don't plan any part of my life around it.

i would like to add that not only the symbol of the star is becoming more apparent and turning, but the one point is getting longer and is turning to the bottom. an animal that is like a lamb is the goat (long chin). in the OT, doesn't it talk about a goat...a scapegoat.

Rev 12:4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

As the due date gets closer, the weather becomes more evident and the "stars" are becoming more apparent to the human eye.

red in the morning, sailors warning, read at night sailors delight.
---aka on 8/11/10

Aka, yes, that's right.

there seems to be double meaning in "like a lamb"... you hit the nail on the head that it is someone who poses as Christ, but the verse says "like a lamb".

antichrist is not christ but it is like christ.

The first beast from the sea with seven heads and ten horns in Rev 13 is the same beast shown in Rev 17. In Rev 17 we learn that the heads are great kingdoms of the world, five have fallen, one is currently in power, and one is to yet come. The ten horns are the ten kingdoms set to reign with the beast.

The second beast from the earth in Rev 13 has two horns as a lamb and speaks as a dragon. The horns as we learned in Rev 17 represent rulership or kings. This person will be a leader of a nation or religious system during the reign ot the beast. The horns are not fully developed, lacking true power. Speaking as a dragon seems to indicate the words will be filled with the truth of Satan, not of God, as we learned of the dragon in Rev 12.

Aka, perhaps. But I think that's a bit of a stretch. Pentagrams don't really resemble lambs.
---ger.toshav on 8/11/10

The first beasts comes from the sea. It is a Gentile, The second beast is an Apostate Jew. The third beast traffics in counterfeiting. He has horns like a lamb, they are Satan's agents and are able to pass themselves off as messengers of light [2 cor. 11:13-15]. Imitating the kingly and prophetic ministries of Christ. Spake as a dragon, his speech betrays him as a tool of Satan, he pretends meekness and humility as a lamb, but in actuality is a masterpiece of the devil. [I have a sister that fits this description]. He is stationed in Jerusalem, however, He owes his position and power to the first beast, who resides in Rome.

//The verse says the Beast "had two horns like a lamb" so I assume it refers to someone trying to pass himself off as a christ....// ---ger.toshav on 8/10/10

if you turn a 5 point star upside down, what do you get? --a long chin, two elongated ears and ...two horns... (or a pentagram)

Did you notice the popular sign right now is the star? They are everywhere, and all the stars seem to be turning. (Rev 12:4)

The popular sign used to be the "peace" sign. (crucifix turned upside down and crossbar broken downwards). Before that was the heart sign, which does not resemble a human heart. So, what does it mean? where did it come from?
