"To John B.....Satan cannot be either beasts of Revelations 13.....can he?"
> > It appears to me to be clear that the beast or beast's of revelations 13, could not be Satan reincarnate
because the scriptures clearly show that he is sent to a different place than the 2 beast's were and
he was not condemned to the lake of fire until after, at least, 1000 years had past. I would be grateful
of any input about this as I was shocked when I realized this! It seems pretty cut and dried to me but
I was always under the impression that the anti-christ was suppose to be Satan, or a man that Satan
would possess after 3 and a half years.
Satan will be chained during the Millennium and released for a short while after it.
There are two men called the son of perdition in Scripture, Judas Iscariot and the False Prophet. Satan enters into both. Satan has two comings, like Christ. Rev 13:11 says, “ And I beheld another beast (Satan) coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns (two comings to power) like a lamb (Christ), and he spake as a dragon“ (Satan).
Joh_17:12 says, “While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the SON OF PERDITION (Judas Iscariot); that the scripture might be fulfilled.“
Rev 17:3 says, “So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast (the great red dragon, representing Satan), full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads (leaders of Babel, Babylon, Media Persia, Greece, Holy Roman Empire, Roman Ecclesiastical Empire), and ten horns (kings of the 10 regions of the world).“
Rev 12:9 says, “ And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out INTO THE EARTH, and his angels were cast out with him.”
Rev 17:8-11 says, “The beast that thou sawest (Satan) was (in Judas), and is not (in man now); and SHALL ASCEND OUT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT (at Mid-Trib), and GO INTO perdition (the False Prophet): and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast (Satan) that was (in Judas), and is not (in man now), and yet is (exists). 9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains (kingdoms), on which the woman (Mystery Religion of Babylon) sitteth. 10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen (leaders of Babel, Babylon, Media Persia, Greece, Holy Roman Empire), and one is (the Roman Ecclesiastical Empire), and the other (the False Prophet) is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. 11 And the beast (Satan) that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and GOETH INTO PERDITION (the False Prophet).”
2Th_2:3 says, “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day (i.e., the Day of the Lord) shall not come, except there come a falling away (i.e., the departure, the Rapture, probably on Ascension Day, Thur. May 17, 2012) first, and that MAN OF SIN (the False Prophet) be revealed (i.e., when he sits in the Temple as if he is God Mid-Trib, probably Nov. 8/9, 2012), the SON OF PERDITION.”
