Beast of Daniel = Image of the Beast (not the Beast himself)

At-a-glance/Revelation and the Flood - Religion-wiki - Wikia

Daniel spake and said, I saw in my vision by night, and, behold, the four winds of the heaven strove upon the great sea.

And four great beasts came up from the sea, diverse one from another.

The first was like a lion

And behold another beast, a second, like to a bear (the false Prophet)

After this I beheld, and lo another, like a leopard

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it



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 I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb (Ram), and he spake as a dragon

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. 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

I'm not sure what your post implies; however, if you're interested in an extensive SDA* interpretation of that scripture I would suggest Kenneth Cox The Antichrist and The Mark of the Beast videos. The entire DVD series (Dimensions of Prophesy) of which these two are merely a part is most informative.

*SDA = Seventh-Day Adventist.

Daniel vision from Daniel 7 .......these beasts which are fallen angels the first beast the lion who had eagles wings ripped of and the mind of a human represents a man without any faith in God ......................second beast a bear eating flesh represents taking and using sin ...............................third beast was given dominion over people ............................. beast of ten horns which represents blaspheme against God and His ten commandment which is the liberal spirit of man against God .............................The little horn which raised up from this beast represents antichrist ............................. these beast at the end of time in the vision would loose their authority and Jesus would have everlasting authority

It is hard to understand how anyone can believe that stuff to be true!

Why does one think so many will be mislead to worship the image of the beast? The answer is--because it looks good to the mortal heart--Gods word says---Whenever they are saying--peace and security( the image) sudden destruction will be upon them.--- so the beast will be projecting peace and security as its means. 99% will fall. Rev 13 has been occurring for awhile now.

Sounds like your Harmagedōn, or return of Christ.
Where, mankind and his religion exalts, itself?
