The "Beasts" of
The more stable elements of mankind rescue the Jews from extermination, but then set up a miniature replica of the world political system in the form of the United Nations. This image of the beast actually speaks and takes action.
The image of the beast = The United Nations organization
The beast out of the earth = The British/American superpower
Revelation 131And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast [ = the world political system - composite; compare the individual beasts in Daniel ch. 7 & 8] rise up out of the sea [ = the wicked, unstable sea of mankind - compare Isa. 57:20], having seven heads and ten horns [ = major world powers, individual governments or nations making up the world political system], and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear [A composite; compare the beast-like governments in Daniel ch. 7 & 8], and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon [ = Satan the devil - Rev. 12:9] gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority [Compare Luke 4:5-6.].
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed [A world power that had been defeated and had lost influence, but that re-emerged on the world scene.]: and all the world wondered after the beast.
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?["You can't fight city hall."]
5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months [ = the 3 1/2 years Hitler's extermination camps operated - compare Rev. 12:6,14].
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints [ = the Jews, God's 'holy people'='saints' - compare "God's people will be helpless in his hands for three and a half years" - Daniel 7:25 The Living Bible], and to overcome them [during the Holocaust]: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations [I.e., the beast is the world political system.].
8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him [by bowing to his image, for example - compare Dan. 3:7], whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
9 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.|
11 And I beheld another beast [ = the British/American superpower] coming up out of the earth [ = the more stable element of mankind] ; and he had two horns like a lamb [ = appears harmless and good] , and he spake as a dragon.
12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast [ = as the only superpower, runs the world political system] before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast [by setting up the United Nations as a miniature 'image' of the world political system] , whose deadly wound was healed.
13 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven [through military air power and nuclear weapons] on the earth in the sight of men,
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 [ = make the United Nations organization, a miniature of the world political system] , which had the wound by a sword, and did live.
15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast [ = the United Nations organization takes on a life of its own] , that the image of the beast should both speak [ = the United Nations makes declarations and pronouncements] , and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed [ = Involvement with the United Nations seems vital to each nation's interests.].
16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. [Already, no one can succeed economically without the mark of ownership by this beast -- or without an account number in their hand or in mind. But perhaps there will also be a further fulfillment.]
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.
