1. There are Two World Powers which are symbolized in Revelation chapter 13. And our first question is Who or What is the first beast or power mentioned?
The beast is representative of the Roman Empire, especially the RCC with emphasis on papacy and the place and function of the Pope.

2. What year the RCC and the papacy lost its world influence and power under the phrase "the fatal wound was healed."

Answer:   The Bible predicted that the papacy would lose its world influence and power at the end of the 1,260 years and then the prophecy was fulfilled in 1798.

3. What does it mean when the prophecy in REV 13:11 says that this new nation,  even if it is America, will speak "as a dragon"?
"speaking as a dragon" = this new nation will eventually be under the influence of Satan in the end time, and force people to worship contrary to their conscience and their personal convictions.

Apostate religion and civil government will unite in the end times to force itself upon the people's conscience.

A. "Exercises all the authority of the First Beast."
Could America become a persecuting power that will force people to go against their conscience, as did papal Rome which is portrayed in the first half of Rev 13?

“I love all religions. … If people become better Hindus, better Muslims, better Buddhists by our acts of love, then there is something growing within them”

“All is God — Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, etc., all have access to the same God.”

She actually promoted the concept that "All Roads lead to Rome" insinuating that all religions ultimately lead to the RCC and the pope.

Even more than being a Catholic she was a Universalist, believing essentially that all religion leads to the same God.

JOH 7:24 "Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."

B. He will use his words to cause the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the First Beast, whose deadly wound was healed."

The pres-act-ind of the Greek verb poieo which means to cause, he will do things that will "cause" those who are on the earth to worship  the first beast.

Please note that the Second Beast is going to cause those who are alive on earth to worship the First Beast.

The Second Beast is going to cause those who are alive on earth to worship the First Beast.

"The beast is representative of the Roman Empire, especially the RCC with emphasis on the papacy and the place and function of the Pope.

The unholy trinity refers to Satan [the father]. the anti-Christ [the son and therefore Satan's son] and the false prophet [counterfeit spirit who is the messenger for the anti-Christ].

The second beast in REV 13:12 will cause the world to worship the anti-Christ, because that is what the father of the anti-Christ, who is Satan, desires for his son.

Just like our Father desires His Son Jesus Christ to be worshipped and honored in JOH 5:22-23, Satan desires the same for his son, the anti-Christ or the pseudo-Christ to be worshipped.

EPH 1:22  And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church,

The First Beast (Satan) will promote the anti-Christ who will promote Satan.

Does Satan specialize in counterfeits?

There's a counterfeit Jesus, spirit, Gospel, doctrine, believers, churches, counterfeit communion table, prophets, signs, wonders, etc.

He will counterfeit the fact that God has a Son and therefore so will he, of course because he is a deceiver.

In MAT 13:24, we read of Christ going forth to sow the "good seed?"

MAT 13:35 = the enemy, Satan, goes forth to sow his "tares" -- which are the imitation of wheat.
Tares are simply weeds that produce death.

Another counterfeit is found in MAT 13:38, notice that we read of "the children of God," then we also read of "the children of the wicked one."

PHI 2:13  for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure.

The best Satan's counterfeit can do is found in the phrase he is the prince of the power of the air of the spirit that is now working in the children of disobedience" (EPH 2:2).

Did our Lord Jesus Christ appoint "apostles"? --  EPH 4:11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers,

2CO 11:13 For such men [Satan's servants] are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ.

We are told in 1CO 2:10 the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God, therefore, if God has deep things, then what do you think the jealous creature Satan has? (REV 2:24).

We have studied these deep things of Satan in the past which are based upon myths, fables, lies and false religious concepts from

Satan, but most of all the deep secrets if a woman called Jezebel related to demonism and the phallic cult.

Most of you have heard about the mark on the hand or the forehead, where do you think the mark or the seal on forehead comes from = Satan?

In REV 7:3, we are told that God, by His angel, will "seal" His servants in their foreheads.

This mark on their foreheads was to symbol that they were under the protection of God, sought of like the blood on the doorposts for the Jews in Egypt.

Satan had to copy this one, by using his deceived human followers and his fallen angels, who will set a mark in the foreheads of his devotees; (REV 13:16).

Does the Father seek "worshippers" (John 4:23), so also does Satan (REV 13:4).

The human race worships the dragon, (Satan as a type of God the Father) and the First Beast, (the anti-Christ or the pseudo Christ as a type of God the Son).

REV 22:16  "I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, the bright morning star."

Did TLJC quote scripture (MAT 4:4), so also does Satan in (MAT 4:6).

Did TLJC claim to be the Light of the world, (He did - JOH 8:12) then Satan also had to desire to transform himself as an "angel of light" (2CO 11:14).

Is TLJC nominated as "the Lion of the tribe of Judah" (REV 5:5), then the Devil is also referred to as "a roaring lion" (1PE 5:6).

Do we read of Christ and "His angels" (Matt.24:31), then we also read of the Devil and "his angels" (MAT 25:41).

Did TLJC work miracles, then so also will Satan; (2TH 2:9)!

1JO 3:2  Beloved, now we are children of God, and it has not appeared as yet what we shall be. We know that, when He appears, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him just as He is.

1JO 4:17 By this, love is perfected with us, that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world.

Is Christ seated upon a "Throne," so also will Satan be; (REV 2:13).

Has Christ a Church, then Satan has his "synagogue"; (REV 2:9).

Has Christ a "bride," then Satan has his "whore"; (REV 17:16).

Has God His "Vine," so has Satan; (REV 14:19).

Does God have a city, the new Jerusalem, then Satan has a city, Babylon; (REV 17:5; 18:2).

Is there a "mystery of godliness" (1TI 3:16), so also there is a "mystery of iniquity" (2TH 2:7).

Does God have an only-begotten Son, so we read of "the Son of Perdition" (2TH 2:3).

Is Christ called "the Seed of the woman," then the Antichrist will be "the seed of the serpent"; (GEN 3:15).

In this Trinity of Evil Satan himself is supreme, just as in the Blessed Trinity the Father is (governmentally) supreme: note that Satan is several times referred to as a father (John 8:44, etc.).

Unto his son, the Antichrist, Satan gives his authority and power to represent and act for him (REV 13:4) just as God the Son received "all power in heaven and earth" from His Father, and uses it for His glory.

The Dragon (Satan) and the Beast (Antichrist) are accompanied by a third, the False Prophet, and just as the third person in the Holy
Trinity, the Holy Spirit, bears witness to the person and work of Christ and glorifies Him.

The Antichrist will be a man, and yet more than man, just as Christ was Man and yet more than man.

The Antichrist will be the Superman' of whom the world, even now, is talking, and for whom it is looking.

The Wicked One who is to be revealed shortly, will be a supernatural character, he will be the Son of Satan.

His twofold nature is plainly declared in 2TH 2:3 -- "That man of Sin, the Son of Perdition."

2TH 2:3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction,

2TI 2:7 Consider what I say, for the Lord will give you understanding in everything.

2PE 1:13 And I consider it right, as long as I am in this earthly dwelling, to stir you up by way of reminder,

1SA 12:24 "Only fear the Lord and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you.

GEN 3:15 And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel. "

There is a double "enmity" spoken of by God says, "I will put enmity between thee and the woman," that is, between Satan and Israel, for Israel was the woman that bore Christ (Rev 12).

Two "seeds" are here spoken of; "Thy seed" (a reference to the Serpent's seed) and "her seed," the woman's Seed, TLJC.

The woman's Seed was Christ, the Serpent's seed will be the Antichrist.

The Antichrist then, will be more than a man, he will be the actual and literal Seed of that old Serpent, the Devil; as Christ was, according to the flesh, the actual and literal Seed of the woman.

"Thy seed," Satan's seed, refers to a s specific individual, just as "her seed" refers to a specific Individual.

There is another reference in the Bible that is also sometimes overlooked and that is Exe 28:1-10.

The second who is described in verses 12-19 and has received considerable attention from Bible students especially of the last three generations.

nagiyd - a prince, a commander, a noble prince.

We are talking about, in the natural realm, the son or the prince of the King of Tyre.

In the spiritual realm who does the King Tyre represent? He represents Satan.

In the spiritual realm who would the principle represent? He would represent the son of Satan, or the anti-Christ.

Noticed he is indicted for the same thing his father, the King of Tyre, who represents Satan is incited for, and he will be judged in the same way as his father.

Just as what is said in EZE 28:11-19 could only refer to  "the king of Tyrus" can an only apply fully to Satan himself, so, what is said of "the prince of Tyrus" manifestly has reference to the Antichrist.

Notice that we are told that the king of Tyrus was "lifted up because of his beauty in EZE 28:17, his son, the prince, the anti-Christ will sit in the seat of God,"  2TH 2:4.

In EZE 28:3, the prince is said to be even wiser than Daniel."

DAN 8:23 "And in the latter period of their rule, When the transgressors have run their course, A king will arise Insolent and skilled in intrigue.

DAN 7:8 "Behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of men, and a mouth speaking great things," which intimates that the Antichrist will be possessed of extraordinary intelligence.

"With his wisdom and understanding he has gotten riches, gold and silver into thy treasures."

PSA 52:7 "Behold, the man who would not make God his refuge, But trusted in the abundance of his riches, And was strong in his evil desire."

As Satan is termed "the king of Tyre," in the second section of this chapter the Antichrist is referred to as "the prince of Tyre."
Antichrist, then, is related to Satan as "prince" is to "king," that is, as son is to the father.

In MAT 12:43 the Antichrist is called "The Unclean Spirit," not merely an unclean spirit, but "the Unclean Spirit."
If this be the case, then we have further evidence that the coming One will be no mere man indwelt by Satan, but a fallen angel, an evil spirit, the incarnation of the Devil.
