Beasts Of Chaff
Upon Christ's return, the Satanic kingdoms, and their state religions, are going to be swept away like chaff:
"1:4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away." (Psalm 1:4 KJV)
"And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea"
The few years just prior to Christ's return is going to see one last rise of the ancient Roman empire, exactly as prophesied in Nebuchadnezzar's Dream (an excerpt is quoted above in Daniel 3:35,44). It will become, again, by means of Satan's demonic power, again, a great military superpower i.e. "13:4 And they worshipped the dragon [see also Dragons] which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?" (Revelation 13:4 KJV).
"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. 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. 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 13:4 And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
"And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth"
The Roman empire's Church of Rome will also have Satan's "miraculous" help in deceiving the world into following it and the beast military/political power i.e. "2:9 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders" (2 Thessalonians 2:9 KJV)
"13:11 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. 13:12 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. 13:13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 13:14 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. 13:15 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 [see Worshipers of The Beast and Its Image].
