Part 3

A Correlation of Revelation 13 & 17 Figures, Symbols, Types & Parallels

2 Revelation Beasts – 7 Heads, 1 of them wounded to death then Healed – 1 Resurrected Caliphate, 10 Horns plus 1 Ruling over Them – 10 Crowns – 1 Dragon, 1 Scarlet Woman, 1 Dragon, and the 8th King as the last line of Kings that have afflicted Israel, beginning with the first line of Egyptian Kings from which God delivered Israel from bondage.

James 1:5-7 – If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. [6] But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. [7] For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

Daniel 12:3,4 – And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever. [4] But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.

Revelation 17:9 – And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

REVELATION 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.

The seven heads of the beast represent seven evil empires that that have, or shall, persecute the nation of Israel. They are, from the first to the seventh – Egyptian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Persian, Grecian, Roman, and Umayyad Empires and the soon coming empire of the antichrist, which is the wounded head on John’s beast, and also represents the eleventh horn that arises from the midst of the ten horns on the fourth beast of Daniel. John identifies this fourth beast in Daniel as the beast Revelation has identified as the sixth beast that has afflicted Israel beginning with Egypt in the Exodus. . There have already been seven beasts representing evil kingdoms. Each one of the first six worshiped a different set of multiple false gods, but the seventh kingdom worshipped a single false god, Allah, and was a Caliphate ruled by a Caliph. The soon coming Antichrist will also worship Allah as the Caliph of his Caliphate. So the last two lines of kings are counted as only one head but as the same worshipping the same false god by the spirit of Antichrist.

Daniel 7:8,21 – I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things. [21] I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them;

John symbolizes antichrist as a bleeding head on his Revelation 13:3 beast while Daniel pictures him as the eleventh horn on his fourth beast, and on the Revelation 17:11 king as John’s Revelation 13:3 is presented as the eighth king – “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.”

The word “deadly” is “thanatos.” It is an adjective used as a noun. It simply mean “death.” A deadly wound is a wound that renders someone dead. A deadly wound, unless miraculously healed, is a wound from which the recipient dies stone, cold, dead. Some say that this represents the fourth beast of Daniel, which would be the sixth beast of John, but this same bleeding head on John’s first beast later becomes a non-bleeding head on John’s second beast.

Apparently, the antichrist, who is represented as being the king of the seventh head, suffers a wound from a weapon of war that would kill an ordinary man, but he miraculously recovers. This would explain the last two sentences in the next verse.

Revelation 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?

The world, as a whole, has never been privy to a confirmed, visual, return of a man from the spiritual world. We accept the resurrection of Christ by faith. The world has long sought for absolute proof of the resurrection of a stone cold dead human. They may finally receive it in the return to life of antichrist from a wound that would kill any other man. Who on this earth could be said to be “like unto” such a man? And how would one be able to win a war against someone who could keep coming back from the dead? In Revelation 13:12 he is again referred to as “the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed,” and in 13:14 as “the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.”

When John wrote the Book of Revelation the first five kings, which pictured the “mountain” empires of Assyria, Egypt, Babylon, Persia, and Greece, had already fallen, and he was writing during the “one is” Roman Empire, which was the sixth. He indicated that one was yet to come, which will be the Umayyad Caliphate. But if the antichrist, as the king of the last empire dies from a deadly wound, and then returns as a resurrected man indwelt totally by the spirit of the dragon, he would, in reality, have been in a line of Caliphs from the seventh and eighth empires. He would be the king of an Islamic Empire that would last for three and one-half years.

Revelation 17:10-14 – And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. [11] And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. [12] And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. [13] These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. [14] These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

“That was” means the beast was previously alive. “And is not” means the beast died. “Even he is” means he came back to life to be the eighth. It is difficult to follow the personification changes of the antichrist from a beast empire to the king of it. At times he is represented as a dying head on the first beast that comes back to life on the second beast. But in the majority of cases, as in Revelation 13, 17, 18, and 19, he is identified as the entire beast.

I have been asked by some WHEN I “think” the beast that is wounded by a weapon of war will be killed. In my opinion it will be just before the blowing of the seventh trumpet in Revelation 11:18 and the death of the two witnesses in Jerusalem in Revelation 11:7. I believe he will be Satan incarnate in a body of human flesh by that time.
