A BEAST, HAVING SEVEN HEADS AND TEN HORNS

A BEAST, HAVING SEVEN HEADS AND TEN HORNS

“… 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” (Rev. 13:1, 2).
Let's find out who is this beast.
As we have said, the Beast is a symbol of the animal kingdom. Therefore, its appearance includes all kinds of animals. Leopard, bear and lion are given here just for example. Among the animals there are myriads of various creatures.
We also mentioned that animals arisen in the water. Therefore, the beast came out of the sea.
“…one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast” (Rev. 13:3).
One of the heads of the beast - is humanity, since we are descended from animals and our roots are there. When the human came out of the animal kingdom, he became more vulnerable physically. He lost his strength and agility inherent in animals. Individually it has become easier to kill each person. However, people compensated their individual weaknesses by group strength and power of the mind. It allowed people to stand at the head of the world and control all the subhuman kingdoms. This is the “deadly wound healing”.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast” (Rev. 13:4).
Dragon - is Devil. The animal instincts of survival still always dominate in the people, although in a somewhat modified and weakened extent. Therefore, spreading across the planet, multiplying in number, the people thus forced the entire earthly world to accept the basic values ​​of the animal kingdom – i.e. of the Beast. And these are the core values of Devil.
And these basic earthly instincts are quite different from anything that exists in Heaven. And how could it be otherwise? It is the result of adaptation to life on Earth. Heaven - is the kingdom of God.
The Beast “opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven” (Rev. 13:6).
This means that the animal nature is so busy by the process of the survival on the Earth that forgets that there is the Heaven, and that we are all from there.
Animal nature is far from Heaven, because it is constantly kills other creatures for food.
Heaven with caution communicates with the animal nature, so as not to infect the sky by Evil. And that is why animals and ordinary people know very little about Heaven.
From here arises all this disregard and inattention to the Divine - because of ignorance.
Animal nature always bewares of unusual, gifted people. Saintliness and reluctance to behave like everyone is regarded as a weakness or stupidity. And this person always suffered from the cruelty of others. This is - the war of the Beast with the Saints (Rev. 13:7).
