Beasty Boy


Comparing ancient, and modern, symbols for kingdoms represented by the beast of Revelation.

Rev 13:1 ¶ And 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 horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

Rev 13:2   And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as [the feet] of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.

Dan 7:7   After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it [was] diverse from all the beasts that [were] before it; and it had ten horns.


In ancient times:

Leopard = Greece

Bear = Medo Persia

Lion = Babylon

Dragon = Satan – gives power

In modern times:

Leopard = Africa continent

Bear = Russia

Lion = England (3 lions), Iran, Belgium, Czechoslovakia, Denmark, Ethiopia, Finland, Scotland, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka

Dragon = China – gives power


So, the main body is that of a leopard.

This would be either:

Greece or Africa

The feet and mouth are something else, and help it move and speak. What makes up the feet and mouth?

Most likely candidates:

Feet: Mede Persia (Iran), Russia

Mouth: Babylon, Iran

This post was meant to be short. I think the choice between modern vs ancient symbols is enough to think about here.

  1. The very first sentence of Revelation 13-1 shows us who the beast is.. John stands on the SAND OF THE SEA and sses a beast rise up… Not only is this the SAND FOUNDATION of the broad way of Matt7 but it is also the Ishmael SAND of the sea foundation of ISlam..likewise rev 20-8…which says satan gathErs the men who are numbered as the SAND OF THE SEA…

    Hosea 13-7,8..Therefore I will be unto them as a LION: as a LEOPARD by the way will I observe [them]: I will meet them as a BEAR [that is] bereaved [of her whelps], and will rend the caul of their heart, and there will I devour them like alLION the wild BEAST shall tear them.
    This verse in Hosea says the people will think the beast (allah ) is god…..

  2. satan as a roaring lion walketh about seeking whom he may devour…SEE REV 10 the angel from heaven with the cursed gospel ROARS AS A LION…

  3. The beast is not a country…Read Rev. 13-13….The false prophets cause fire to come down from heaven..This means they convince the people the allah beast is the god of Abraham.. This is exactly the same test Elijah challenged the false prophets of Baal to prove who was the real god of Abraham..
    Rev 12 -9 shows who and what the dragon and his heads are..
    Rev 12-9..And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. The dragon beast is satan and his seven fallen angels…
    Hosea 13-7,8 shows that the world wll think the beast is god..God says he will be to them as a bear, lion and leopard

    The beast and co. of Rev 13 is none other than the broad way of Matt. 7…Both are composed of false prophets with sheep like appearance and both are built on the sand of the sea..

    This beast of rev 13 is the temptation of the entire world…He is here to tempt the people to leave the real god of abraham and worship lucifer as the god of abraham…

    it is also the exact same satan and his angels from the garden ofeden who tempted Eve.. See 2 corinthians 11-3,4,14 and see Evee’s temptation compared to this las day temptation of islam…

  4. Hello Marianne and All,

    Lion = Babylon

    Bear = Medo Persia

    Leopard = Greece

    These beasts were and are symbolically used to represent kingdoms that would rule the world from the beginning to the last kingdom. The beast here in Rev.13 is not a Lion, is not a bear and is not a leopard, but has the characteristics of those beast kingdoms. The beast itself is that forth kingdom mentioned in Daniel with seven heads and ten horns, that is, that last kingdom/beast that is terrifying and frightening with iron teeth. The mention of iron teeth is ment to tell us that this is the Roman empire (legs of iron). The Roman empire when it was completely made of iron represents Rome in its strength. The Roman empire collapsed in the fourth century AD and will be somewhat restored as seen by the feet of iron with ten toes. This is the kingdom that is coming, the last kingdom. But, because the feet and ten toes are not made of pure iron, but are mixed with baked clay, this last day kingdom will not have the same strength as it did when it was the pure iron of the Roman empire, but will be partly strong and partly brittle, a divided kingdom. (Dan.2:41-43)

    This last kingdom resembling a Leopard, having the feet of a bear and a mouth like that of a lion, means that this last kingdom will have some of the characteristics of the those previous kingdoms. These kingdoms are not ment to be transposed unto other future kingdoms, that is, since Scripture has told us that the Lion represents Babylon, then the mention of the lion represents the characteristics of Babylon. When we read that it has the feet of a bear, then these are characteristics of Medo-Persia, etc.

    In Revelation, the beast represents a couple of different things, the first representation is that of Satan:

    “Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten hourns and seven crowns on his heads.”

    “And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, adn the dragon and his angels fought back,. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. That great dragon was hurled down–that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. he was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.

    So, we can see from the verse above that, the dragon is identified as the devil or Satan and are used interchangably. This tells us that Satan is who is in background orchestrating these kingdoms and people that has to do with the beast.

    The beast also represents an angel called Abaddon or Apollyon which means “Destroyer” and who currently resides in the Abyss and will be let out at the middle of that seven year covenant, which was made by the beast, that is, his human counterpart.

    “The Beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction.” (Rev.17:8)

    They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.” (Rev.9:10-11)

    This is the beast, who when he comes up out of the Abyss kills the two witnesses who will have been prophecying at Jerusalem from the beginning of the seven up until the middle of the seven. For their time of prophecy is 1,260 days (3 1/2 years).

    “Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.” (Rev.11:7)

    The beast is also that last day man of lawlessnes, also called the antichrist who is represented by that eighth king who belongs to the seven, as represented by the seven heads of the beast.

    “The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.” (Rev.17:11)

    As we have also seen earlier, the beast also represents that last day kingdom. So, there are a couple different entities representing the designation of the beast, but the context of the Scripture tells what or who is in view and we must allow Scripture to define the symbolisms, for that is the very reason that God put them in his word.

    Just a note, a mistake that many make, is identifying the beast that comes up out of the Abyss as Satan, when in fact, Satan and Destroyer are two seperate entities. Currently the beast is restricted to the Abyss and will be let out when the fifth trumpet is blown. On the other hand, Satan is and has been out and about in the world, even having access to heaven, for God’s word states that he is accusing the brothers night and day before God (Rev.12:10). Also, a key is required to open or close the Abyss as demonstrated in verses Rev.9:1-11 and Rev.20:1-3. This tells me that, since the Abyss requires a key to unlock it in order to let demonic beings out and as well as to throw them in and restrict them, that entities are not able to just come and go as they please. In other words, once an entity is in the Abyss, it must be opened again before they come out. The Abyss is basically a prison for fallen angels, also called unclean spirits and demons.

    • The more I learn of the catholic church…especially with JPaul II…and their connection to the masons I can definitely see their part-big part-in the end time scenario. What part does islam play?

      • Hi Lyndsey,

        I have an idea in regards to your question about what part Islam plays. Consider the following verse:

        “I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, ‘Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, and count the worshipers there. But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.” (Rev.11:1-2)

        Now, we know that according to Daniel, when that ruler makes his covenant with “Many,” that it is referring to Israel because it states that, in the middle of the seven he causes the daily sacrifice to cease and sets up that abomination in the temple. Since There has been no fulfillment of that abomination being set up in the temple and the original temple was destroyed in 70 AD, then there is only one conclusion and that is, the temple must be rebuilt at a future time in order for this prophecy to be fulfilled, that is, there must be a temple in order for the abomination to be set up in it, as well as being able to cause the daily sacrifies to cease.

        Currently, the only reason that Israel has not rebuilt her temple is because Islam’s “Dome of the Rock” sits on the temple mount, but not necessarily on the site of the Holy of Holies. In fact, those who have been doing the research are pretty sure that the Dome of the Rock does not sit on that site. One of the beliefs is that the site of the Holy of Holies lies 150 ft south of the Dome of the Rock.

        That being said and Hypothetically speaking, what if this covenant with “Many” that this man of lawlessness makes is with Israel and Islam, making it possible for Israel to build their long awaited temple on the actual site of the Holy of Holies, which would be adjacent to the Dome of the Rock?

        “But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.” (Rev.11:1-2)

        The word “Gentiles” means nations, languages, races, that is, everyone else who is not Israel. What if after the temple is built, it situates the Dome of the Rock as being in the “Outer Court” in relation to the Holy of Holies? This would mean that the mention of the outer court being excluded because it has been given over to the Gentiles could be referring to Isalm/Muslims. After all, something amazing is going to have to take place in order for the Muslims to allow Israel to build their temple adjacent to the Dome of the Rock! One thing is for sure, Israel will not begin their practice of sacifices according to Levitical law except at the original site of the Holy of Holies, with the alar for sacrifices, with its utensils, the sprinkling of the blood to sanctify everything in the temple, including the priests and their garments. In short, they will not begin any of those Levitical practices until they have their temple built on the orginal site with the Holy of Holies as the focal point of the temple.

        Somehow I believe that when this man of lawlessness makes his covenant, he is going to appease the needs of both Israel and Islam making way for Israel to rebuild her temple.

        • Agreed. However, it would be better if Hizboallah, and Hamas start a regional war back by Syria, and Iran where the Dome of the Rock gets destroyed for housing weapons, C-4, and armed moon god worshipers.

          I would have to start the BBQ early to rejoice, and open a cold one!

    • wow very cool
