Two Beasts

The purpose of this file is to contrast two different beasts described in the book of Revelation. One is the Leopard Beast, and the other is the Scarlet Beast. There are many Christians who confuse the two, thinking they are one and the same, but the Bible reveals to us that they are a man and a nation.

B oth beasts have 7 heads and 10 horns.  The Leopard Beast is mentioned in Revelation 13, and the Scarlet Beast is mentioned in Revelation 17.
We will show differences between these TWO BEASTS to help the reader understand them..  

 

Scarlet Beast

The Scarlet Beast is identified as a NATION. The bible tells us that the seven heads of the Scarlet Beast are 7 SEQUENTIAL KINGDOMS or NATIONS.  The Scarlet Beast carries the woman Babylon the Great on its heads.
 
Revelation 17:3
And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast, full of blasphemous names, having seven heads and ten horns.

 
For more information about the woman that rides the Scarlet Beast see the file Babylon the Great.

 
Revelation 17:8
The beast that you saw was, and is not, and is about to come up OUT OF THE ABYSS and go to destruction. And those who dwell on the earth, whose name has  NOT been written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, will wonder when they see the beast, that it was and is not and will come.


People who admire the Scarlet Beast are not Christians -- they are not written in the book of life; similar to the people who admire its final leader (the Leopard Beast) which are not written in the book of life either. 

 
Revelation 17:9-10
Here is the MIND WHICH HAS WISDOM. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while.

 
The bible tells us that the interpretation is given to the MIND WHICH HAS WISDOM: The 7 heads are representative of 7 SEQUENTIAL kingdoms (nations) because the bible says..."5 have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come..."

Revelation 17:11
The beast which was and is not, is himself also an EIGHTH and is out of the seven, and he goes to destruction.
 
Now, the bible explains that there is an 8th kingdom (nation) that is "out of the 7."  You may read more about this topic in the file The Scarlet Beast.  Here we just want to contrast the Scarlet Beast to the Leopard Beast in order for the reader to see the differences between them.

The eighth kingdom of the Scarlet Beast which comes OUT OF THE ABYSS is the one in power when God's Two Witnesses are preaching. 

Revelation 11:7
When they [TWO WITNESSES] have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up OUT OF THE ABYSS will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them.

This eight kingdom (nation) that comes OUT OF THE ABYSS makes war with God's Two Witnesses and overcomes them. 

The ten horns, though, are subservient kings/nations to the Scarlet Beast.

Revelation 17:12-13
the ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the [Scarlet] beast for one hour.  These have one purpose, and they give their power and authority to the [Scarlet] beast.

Revelation 17:14
These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.

The bible tells us that the 10 horns are 10 kings who receive authority WITH the Scarlet Beast.  First notice what is mentioned about the 10 HORNS:
 
1  They are 10 kings.
2   Unlike the 7 heads/kingdoms which were sequential, the 10 horns/kings are NOT sequential.
3   They receive authority WITH the beast (the last 8th kingdom) and only for a short time (one hour).
4   The 10 horns/kings hate the harlot who rides the Scarlet Beast and burn her with fire.
5   The 10 horns wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb overcomes them.  Therefore, these 10 horns/kings share  power with the beast at the time Jesus returns to earth to start his millennial rule.  See more about this in the file Battle of Armageddon.

Revelation 17:16
And the ten horns which you saw, and the [Scarlet] beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire.

Revelation 17:17

For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled.

The ten horns (subordinate nations) have a common purpose with the beast -- they go to the Battle of Armageddon.

God says this beast (nation) goes to destruction -- an event that is not too far away.  Remember:

Revelation 17:11
"The beast which was and is not, is himself also an EIGHTH and is out of the seven, and he goes to destruction

The Scarlet Beast is the most influential and powerful human government at the time Jesus returns to this earth. This government will be totally destroyed at the Battle of Armageddon.  The last human leader of the Scarlet Beast, as we mentioned,  is identified as the Leopard Beast.

 

Leopard Beast

The Leopard Beast is identified as a MAN. Please understand that the LEOPARD BEAST is the last ruler of the scarlet beast. He is the one in power when Christ comes for the Battle of Armageddon. After that the LEOPARD BEAST is taken and thrown in the lake of fire.

Revelation 13:18
HERE IS WISDOM.  Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast [THE LEOPARD BEAST] for it is the number of a MAN and his number is six hundred and sixty six

666 is the unique ID of the Leopard Beast. This is similar to a driver's license in that every person has a different number.

Revelation 13:5-6
And there was given to him a MOUTH speaking great 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.

Notice that this Leopard Beast has a mouth. The Bible says "speaking great blasphemies." He or she speaks  blasphemies against God. Please observe that this person is not a Christian, but somehow convinces the  masses to vote for him or her.

Revelation 13:7
And 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 people and tongue and nation.

The Leopard Beast persecutes Christians, but remember he is very sneaky like a leopard. A leopard often stalks its prey under the cover of  night; it does not attack out in the open like a lion. The Leopard Beast will probably eliminate Christians in a stealthy manner. This is to keep his prey from running away. For example, the Leopard Beast could monitor internet use to persecute Christians without them knowing that they are being stalked.

Revelation  13:8
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

Even though the Leopard Beast is an evil man, great crowds are mesmerized by him.  These groups of people, though, are not really Christians, as the bible tells us they *are not written in the book of life."

Revelation  13:9-10
If any man have an ear, let him hear. He that leads into captivity shall go into captivity: he that kills with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 

This means we are not supposed to attack back the Leopard Beast, but to run away. That is how the prey escapes from a leopard. This is important because God says: "If any man have an ear let him hear." 

Revelation  13:11-12
And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he speaks as a dragon. And he exercises all the power of the first beast before him, and causes the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 

After the Leopard Beast (man) is injured almost to death, a second beast (man) rises. This new one looks like a lamb, but speaks as a dragon. It reminds me of a wolf wearing sheep's clothing.

Revelation 13:16-17
And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, save him that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 

These two MEN force people to get an evil ID known as the Mark of the Beast.

Revelation 16:13-14
And I saw coming out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the MOUTH of the [Leopard] beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits like frogs; for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which GO OUT TO THE KINGS OF THE WHOLE WORLD, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty.

 
Evil spirits come out of the mouth of these three to gather the kings of the whole world for the Battle of Armageddon.
 

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.


The demise of these two MEN --the Leopard Beast and the False Prophet-- is at the Battle of Armageddon when Jesus Christ throws them alive into the lake of fire.

We wrote this file to help the readers understand that the return of our Lord Jesus Christ is sooner than what we had anticipated.  The information in this file is vital to be able to survive the trials and tribulations that will follow shortly.  Please pray for us and for all the Christians who are trying to warn everyone about what is coming.
