Revelation 13


For Eyes that See

Revelation 13 from The Chronological Gospels

(The Beast Government)

(13:1 Then I stood upon the sand of the sea and watched a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns – and upon its horns ten crowns, and upon its heads was the name of blasphemy.{1} 2The beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth was like the mouth of a lion.{1} The dragon gave it his power, and his throne, and great authority. 3And I saw one of its heads as it was wounded unto death. But its deadly wound was healed, and all the world wondered after the beast. 4The world worshipped the dragon which gave power to the beast, and they worshipped the beast, saying, “Who is like unto the beast? Who is able to make war with it?” 5And there was given to it a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given to the beast to continue forty-two months. 6He opened his mouth in blasphemy against YHVY, to blaspheme his holy name, and his tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7He was given the power to make war with the saints, and to overcome them. Power was given him over all families, and tongues, and nations. 8All those who dwell upon the earth shall worship him – that is, all those whose names are not written in the scroll of life by the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”

{13:1.1} The most probable candidate for the name of blasphemy is “allah hu akbar,” or, “allah is greater.” Greater than whom? Think about this for a moment… “Greater than YHVY, the Elohim of Israel”! This penchant for blasphemy is cited again in Revelation 17:3.

{13:2.1} The beasts mentioned here (lion, bear, leopard, and man) were the focal point of Daniel’s prophetic vision concerning the Babylonian, Persian, Grecian, and Roman empires (Daniel 7:1-12). The land masses of each of these ancient civilizations now comprise the nations of Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Arabia, and several other Middle Eastern countries which are now under Islamic control.

((The Mark of the Beast))

13:9 If any man has an ear, let him hear. 10He who leads into captivity shall go into captivity, and he who kills with the sword shall be killed with the sword. Here is the enduring patience and faith of the saints.

11Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, but he spoke like the dragon. 12He exercised all the authority of the first beast who came before him, and caused the earth and all those who dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13He did great wonders and made fire come down from heaven onto the earth in the sight of men. 14He deceived all who dwell on the earth by means of those miracles which he had the power to do under the authority of the beast. He instructed all who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast, which had a wound by a sword and yet lived. 15The dragon-lamb had the power to give life to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast could both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16And the dragon-lamb caused all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17so that no man might buy or sell except those who have the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 18Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding decipher the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is...

{13:18.1} “…for it is the number of a man.” The number, or mark, or name of the Beast is written in the ancient Greek text of the book of the Revelation as three characters: c x s – chi, xi, sigma, not as a number < e`xako,sioi, e`xh,konta, e[x – hexakosioi, hexekonta, hex > six-hundred-sixty-six. The linguistic evidence is strong that John, Yochanan, wrote his revelation in the Hebrew language. Yet, the Greek language had been embedded in the Galilee region for hundreds of years and these characters would not have been unfamiliar to him. Presuming that John, Yochanan, saw these three Greek characters in the vision, we can simply rotate them 90 degrees to see their preeminence in the modern Islamic basmallah – by far the most prolific artistic expression observed throughout the Muslim world. The basmallah is the artistic symbol which bears the acronym: “in the name of allah, most gracious, most merciful.” Today, this name of insult against the One True God is worn on the headbands and on the right arms of Islamic jihad (holy war) terrorists, as well as on the uniformed soldiers of Muslim armies who are sworn to the destruction of the nation of Israel and the extermination of the Jewish people. See the Resources for other theories as to what this number or these symbols may refer.

The center graphic is an artistic representation of the basmallah, which is the most common artistic expression in Muslim calligraphy. The Greek characters are a standard font which appears throughout this publication.
