The Beast’s Lion Attributes
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.
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. (Revelation 13:1-2 KJV)
The Beast will also possess the personality traits of a lion. The Beast’s lion’s nature will produce a person of tremendous power and strength. The lion’s character will shape the Beast into a serious predator that will kill or punish his enemies by rending and tearing their lives or resources. It is also the lion’s disposition to allow others to do his hunting and often killing for his benefit and protection. When offended or wronged, the Beast will demonstrate the lion’s brutally in his willingness to attack his enemies, but only at a safe and discreet distance. God’s people and all those who will not bow down before the Beast will suffer the most; which can be seen in Daniel 11:31-35).
“So he shall return and show regard for those who forsake the holy covenant. 31 And forces[fn] shall be mustered by him, and they shall defile the sanctuary fortress; then they shall take away the daily sacrifices, and place there the abomination of desolation. 32 Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. 33 And those of the people who understand shall instruct many; yet for many days they shall fall by sword and flame, by captivity and plundering. 34 Now when they fall, they shall be aided with a little help; but many shall join with them by intrigue. 35 And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time. (Daniel 11:31-35 NKJV)
Those who will not openly worship the Beast will suffer the full force of the Beast’s indignation. Though he will outwardly appear confident and powerful, in actuality, he is tremendously insecure and filled with self-doubt and loathing. This is in his nature and the nature of all demonic beings who are constantly burdened with insecurities. Their need to torment humanity is derived from their own constant torment of self-doubt and feelings of unworthiness. This is the fundamental reason behind the demonic need to kill, steal, and destroy the lives of humans. Satan and his minions both love and hate God their Creator, who cast the demonic host from heaven. As a result, the demons are driven to torment anything created in the likeness or image of God.
It can be determined from the events and elements in chapter 11 of “This Side of the Whirlwind, The Coming Apocalypse,” that the Beast is the supreme enemy of God and His people. The Beast in Daniel 7 is the same wicked king found in Daniel 8 and chapter 11 and also the Dragon found in Revelation 12, 13, 16, and 20. The Beast presented in these sections is also synonymous with the “Wicked” or “Wicked One,” mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:8.
So add the Lion attribute to the equation and ask yourself, “Who does this sound like now?”
- To the Leopard Attribute,
- Add the Bear attribute
- Together with the Lion attribute.
- Now, what world figures do you know which come to mind with these attributes?
- Who could the Beast of Revelation be?
- We know he must be alive and of an age where he could fulfill God’s plan,
- Because the Great Consummation is just around the corner,
- And the world has less than eleven years from today to experience the Second Half of Christ’s Covenant.
- So, what public figure do you think might be the Beast?
- You know, that “Anti-Christ” figure foretold throughout the scriptures of old?
