the time approaches for the events prophesied in the Bible to be
fulfilled, we must diligently look into the scriptures to be able to obtain the
identity of the Leopard
Beast -- an evil ruler who will come
about in the very near future. This beast seems to be a man
endowed with a great ability to speak, allowing the masses to be swayed
by his words; a man similar to Napoleon or Hitler.
Revelation 13:5-6 And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things,
...but among the things this beast speaks are blasphemies.
Revelation 13:5-6 And there was given to him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and there was given to him authority to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
Therefore either this person is not behaving as a Christian, or outright, he is NOT A CHRISTIAN. If we study the bible carefully, we could identify this man... even before he takes power ... because the Leopard Beast is identified by a number that we are supposed to count. See Mark of the Beast.
Revelation 13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the NUMBER OF A MAN; and his number is six hundred and sixty six.
The man referred to as the Leopard Beast or Antichrist will be revealed before the return of Jesus back to this earth. One of the signs to look for is a rebellion (revolution) after which more strict legislation will become mandatory, and by which this antichrist ruler will be given dictatorial powers.
have been many dictators who have
ruled after a "revolution," but in this case, the government led by
this beastly man will not last past his lifetime. We know that this Leopard
Beast/Antichrist is the LAST ruler on earth because the bible says that
"the Lord Jesus will
overthrow with the breath of his mouth and
destroy by the splendor of his coming."
2Thessalonians 2:1-4 Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. Donít let anyone deceive you in any way, for [that day will not come] until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in Godís temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
2Thessalonians 2:5-8 Donít you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.
In 2 Thessalonians, the Apostle Paul states the same thing as the book of Revelation: that during the government of this antichrist, there would be "all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders" to deceive the crowds into supporting this evil man.
This evil man is in power for 42 months (3 and 1/2 years)... short of a 4 year presidency... and then another beast (government leader) rises.
seems that the Leopard Beast/Antichrist suffers a near fatal blow
from an opponent, but with the help of modern science
recovers from the deadly wound. The second leader (False Prophet), who
miracles, seems to be ruling while the first one is
Revelation 13:14 And deceives them that dwell on the earth by means of the signs 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 lived.
Revelation 13:15 And he had power to give spirit [life] to 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.
2nd beast (False Prophet,) therefore, works in
unison with the 1st
beast (Leopard-Beast,) probably because the same government party is in
b) the near fatal wound that this man will receive
c) the restriction of civil liberties
d) the persecution of Christians
Any citizen that would dare to voice a disagreement would be termed unpatriotic and flat out terrorist. The persecutions will then start, as has always been the case whenever totalitarian regimes are in power. We must notice that the persecutions will be mainly of Christians.
13:7And it was given unto him to make war with the
SAINTS, and to
overcome them: and there was given to him authority over every tribe
and tongue and nation.
Revelation 13:8 And ALL that dwell on the earth shall worship him, whose name hath not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb that hath been slain.
People who worship the Beast are not Christians; they are not written in the book of life. Christians are inscribed in the book of life and sealed with the Seal of God. David has a reference to people who are not written in the book of life.
Psalms 69:28 May they be blotted out of the book of life And may they not be recorded with the righteous.
Those who obey the Beast will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the lake of fire.
Revelation 14:9-10 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand. The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
Revelation 19:20 And the [Leopard] beast was taken, and with him the False Prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.
In contrast, those who refuse the Mark of the Beast will be victorious.
Revelation 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire; and them that come off victorious from the beast, and from his image, and from the number of his name, standing by the sea of glass, having harps of God.
Be alert, these prophecies are soon about to happen. Make sure you are counted with the righteous.
