The Second Beast John describes the second beast as having two horns like a lamb that spoke like a dragon. And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. Rev. 13:11 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. Rev. 13:12 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire ocome down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, Rev. 13:13 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; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. Rev. 13:14 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. Rev. 13:15 The Mark of the Beast will be in the right hand or on the forehead And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: Rev. 13:16 No one will be able to buy or sell unless they have the mark, the name, or the number of the beast 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. Revelation 13:17 The number of the beast is 666 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. Rev. 13:18 Malachi's Prophecy Malachi was the author of the book of Malachi. His name in Hebrew is Malachiah which means "messenger of Jehovah" or "my messenger". He was a Levite and a respected member of the Great Synagogue.The book of Malachi was probably written during the third quarter of the 5th century B.C. and it is the 39th and final recorded book of the Old Testament. Malachi's primary message was to urge the people to return to God, teaching of God's sovereignty and prophesied of things to come including the end times. In chapter 3 he speaks of the approaching judgement day and tells what the Lord Almighty said. The Lord said I will send my messenger of the Covenant Malachi 3:1“See, I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come,” says the LORD Almighty.
Malachi 3:2 But who can endure the day of his coming? Who can stand when he appears? For he will be like a refiner’s fire or a launderer’s soap. Malachi 3:3 He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver; he will purify the Levites and refine them like gold and silver. Then the LORD will have men who will bring offerings in righteousness,
Malachi 3:4 and the offerings of Judah and Jerusalem will be acceptable to the LORD, as in days gone by, as in former years
Malachi 3:5 “So I will come near to you for judgment. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive aliens of justice, but do not fear me,” says the LORD Almighty. There will be no rest for those who worship the beast The smoke from the tormented ones who have the mark of the beast will rise forever! Those who have the mark will not have rest from the torment that God has for them. Revelation 14:11 And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name." Revelation 14:10-12 he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. Revelations 14:11 There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name.” Revelations 14:12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus. How to tell if someone has the mark of the beast Those who have the mark will have painful sores.People worshiped the beast and his image and who have the mark of the of the beast will have painful and ugly sores.
Revelation 16:2 The first angel went and poured out his bowl on the land, and ugly and painful sores broke out on the people who had the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. People worshiped the beast and his image and who have the mark of the of the beast will have painful and ugly sores. The Beast will be captured and burned alive with those who worship him The beast was captured with a false prophet that performed miraculous signs for him. These miraculous signs convinced people to worship the image of the beast. Both of them will burn alive in the lake of fire.
Revelation 19:20 But the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who had performed the miraculous signs on his behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped his image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. Those who do not get the mark will be beheaded, will be brought back to life and reign with Christ Those who were given authority to judge sat on thrones. The people who did not worship the beast or his image or get the mark of the beast in their foreheads or their hands were beheaded! Yet they came back to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. Revelation 20:4 I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received his mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years. Those who are victorious over the beast and his image and the number of his name will be given harps from God Revelations 13:2 And I saw what looked like a sea of glass mixed with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and over the number of his name. They held harps given them by God-
