13:2: Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. They are anti-Christ, as we shall see. The beast is vicar of Satan, who similarly has seven heads and ten horns: implying his universal power in all ages. However, the seven heads representing ‘kings’ are Roman Emperors, for five are fallen, one is and one is coming. It had not yet arisen: but St. John saw that the wicked Roman Empire was tottering to its fall, and that it would be dissolved in other and final world-powers represented in their totality by the number ten. 1 Now before the Feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that His hour had come that He should depart from this world to the Father, So the wild beast primarily represents the bestial nature of earthly empire, summing up in itself all past empires. Obedience in Authority. { Daniel 7:19-23} Thirdly. The power is the natural power, consisting in the great number of retainers, fulness of earthly resources, and such like; the throne is worldly supremacy; and the authority is its assumed right to command whatever it might please. A wild beast rises out of the sea, to whom the dragon gives his power. The three animals, the leopard, the bear, and the lion, some of whose parts it possessed, are the first three ‘great beasts’ of Daniel 7:4-6, although they are here introduced in a different order, and are combined into one. 3. The third kingdom, the leopard (Daniel 7:4-6), here first, including the former two, the bear and lion in reverse order, was the parent of Antiochus' blasphemy. And the dragon gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority. In this verse an angel warns Joseph that he must flee. The seven heads are also the seven mountains on which Rome is established. And the dragon gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority. That was in chapter 12, verse 23, and then we see it repeated in chapter 13, verse one, “He knew that His hour had come.” Then, if you jump ahead, to chapter 17, and verse one, “Jesus spoke these things; and lifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, ‘Father, the hour has come; glorify Your Son, that the Son may glorify You.” It was the great red monster of chapter twelve who initially had the seven heads and the ten horns. which is the strongest and most devouring beast of prey. And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! A return is in some degree made to the simplicity of the fundamental passage in Jeremiah, where the lion, the wolf, and the panther, are also employed to represent the power of the world as a whole, and form, so to speak, a composite animal. Those in nations and governments who persecute the church of Christ, receive their power and their motivation from the dragon, Satan. The first one doesn’t begin that way, but we know it is about the kingdom from its explanation in 13:19. The description of the ‘beast’ is continued. Satan is the one who controls the earthly kings and empires of the future following the resurrection and enthronement of Christ in Heaven. The dragon (Satan, Revelation 12:9) gave him his power means the devil used his influence in favor of the beast of Rome. This is a fitting description of Nero Caesar, in whom "the Neronic anti-Christ was incarnated," who assumed divine names and prerogatives, and commanded the worship of the emperor. дракон См. This links it specifically with the red monster. 2. Chapter 13. “Go to bed and pretend to be ill,” Jonadab said. 2 Thessalonians 2:9. authority.

The word and thought are the same as in Isaiah 5:26; but there the summons lies for the invaders of Israel, here for its avengers.The voice that summons is, as the next verse shows, that of Jehovah. Isaiah 18:3 All ye inhabitants of the world, and dwellers on the earth, see ye, when he lifteth up an ensign on the mountains; and when he bloweth a trumpet, hear ye. It is probable that St. John has the Temptation in the wilderness as described by the earlier Evangelists in his eye. The form of the beast here is compounded of the different beasts in Daniel; quite naturally so, since the beast here images the ungodly power of the world as a whole, while in Daniel the different phases of this power are represented. "The fact that the leopard of Greece, the bear of Medo-Persia, and the lion of old Babylon ( Daniel 7) are all seen in this Beast, shows how all-inclusive of human things will be his character; he sums up all the brilliancy (Greece), all of the massive ponderousness of power (Persia), all of the absolute autocratic royal dominion (Babylon), that the Gentiles have ever known." 1 Everyone must submit to governing authorities. They are now accepted by the beast at the expense of becoming the dragon’s slave and sharing its fate.

By the dragon, we are to understand that old serpent, called the devil and Satan, Revelation 12:9 and Revelation 20:2. . Even in her darkest days Christian Rome could not have been fitly represented by one of the heads of the beast. Hence the combination of traits from Daniel’s four beasts: general appearance that of a fierce panther, feet like a bear’s (i.e., plantigrade), jaws like a lion’s (of devouring strength)—a Palestinian (Hosea 13:7-8) picture of a perfect beast of prey, raging and ravening, before whom the church, like Dryden’s milk-white Hind, “was often forced to fly, And doom’d to death, though fated not to die”.— . [Note: Newell, p184.]. Thus not only is the Beast the inheritor of the worldwide dominion directly bestowed upon Nebuchadnezzar, but he also represents the dragon in cruelty and brute force in the world. If ye try your own selves ye will see that Christ is in you (Romans 8:10). ...

Several have sought to explain the fact of John's confining himself to the three first beasts, on the supposition, that even in Daniel the fourth beast is composed of the peculiar features of the three first; so that the beast in John would thus be an exact image of the fourth beast in Daniel. But, as we must exclude all consideration of the ten horns, there remains but one way of explaining the deviation from the order in Daniel; which is, that if it had been retained, one would very naturally have supposed that the particular elements in the composite beast, like the different beasts in Daniel, indicated definite phases of the power of the world in the order here mentioned. Chapter 12 ended with an encouraging reminder about the nature of the new covenant (Hebrews 12:26–29). Jeremiah 51:58 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; and the people shall labour in vain, and the folk in the fire, and they shall be weary. The kingdom the beast rules and represents seems to reflect his personal qualities. It could not, indeed, have been put in this form: Satan gave him. The distinction between land and sea, in these designations of the two beasts, is simply that the land in the vision stood for Palestine, and the sea for Rome, separated from Palestine by the sea, and symbolized as universal in sway. It was repeated because it was important. The gift of Satan is subject to divine direction, and not merely to divine permission. Compare Daniel 8:24. Then they cried out to the Lord.

A remarkable coincidence exists between these words and what is written both in the gospel of St John and the earlier gospels.

We must rather, therefore, seek the reason of the fact referred to in the circumstance, that only the three first beasts in Daniel have a definite form attributed to them. The panther cannot, as Vitringa supposes, denote "nations of different languages and manners," on account of its spotted appearance; nor can it, as Bossuet conceives, be "the symbol of instability;" for everywhere in Scripture, when the panther is spoken of, respect is had only to its terrible and savage energy—see Habakkuk 1:8; Hosea 13:7; Isaiah 11:6. Its apostasy to picture-worship, mariolatry, and adoration of the eucharist, healed the wound. There will not be one stone left upon another that will not be thrown down.” The Signs of the End.

The empire gathered up all the obnoxious qualities of Israel’s former oppressors: craft, lust of blood, and vicious energy. Since the order, however, is reversed, no one can fail to see that nothing depends on it—that the object of the description is merely to portray the nature of the ungodly power of the world—that panther, lion, bear, equally belong to Egypt, Babylon, Rome. And the beast which I saw, was like a panther, and his feet as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion. This beast unites in itself the God-opposed characteristics of the three preceding.

As chapter 17 will make clear there is another wild beast, a scarlet beast (known elsewhere as the beast of the abyss), which, while encompassing Rome, signifies more than Rome. They have this in common with "John's gospel, that Satan bears a distinct name as the animating principle of the ungodly power of the world—there the prince of this world, here the dragon. 1 sn This is a vague allusion to people described in scripture and extra-biblical literature and may include Abraham and Sarah (Gen 18:2-15), Lot (Gen 19:1-14), Gideon (Judg 6:11-18), Manoah (Judg 13:3-22), and possibly Tobit (Tob 12:1-20). 3. . 1 If I speak in the tongues # 13:1 Or languages of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. All God's holy people send you their greetings. It is to be remembered, too, that the description given us of the power of the beast is a mocking caricature of the power of Christ, and His rule is universal. The dark-spotted body of this animal, from which it has its name in Hebrew ( נמר, in Arabic, to be spotted), is an emblem of spiritual staining. The wild beast from the abyss in chapter 17 has the same. Isaiah 10:32 As yet shall he remain at Nob that day: he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem. Three well known animals are mentioned here: each symbolic of swiftness, crushing power, eagerness to destroy. This description links the wild beast with those in Daniel chapter 7, with the idea that this wild beast combines in itself all the power, might and glory of those kingdoms. 2 Timothy 1:13, ESV: "Follow the pattern of the sound words that you have heard from me, in the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus." These kingdoms are Greece ( Daniel 7:6), Medo-Persia ( Daniel 7:5), and Babylon ( Daniel 7:4). And this, even apart from the passage before us, cannot be understood otherwise than as importing that Satan only promised what he was able in certain circumstances to secure. Not only is the sovereign power itself of God, but its abuse also is of him, when turned to lawless conquest or to the cruel persecution of the church, which requires to be chastised for her sins, exercised under the cross, perfected through sufferings, and prepared for her destiny. The visions of Revelation were not a history of Rome, but within their symbols were included the graphic representations of the emperor and the empire.

What Satan here gives to the beast, he there promises to Christ. 2. And the dragon gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority. 6. there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. It only remains to add that the period referred to when the dragon gives his throne and authority to the Beast is the time and occasion when the Beast ascends out of the abyss (Revelation 17:8), consequent upon Satan's expulsion from Heaven. 2 Kings Chapter 13. But, if so, chap. In addition to the ten-crowned horns, upon the heads of the beast the name of blasphemy was inscribed. пояснение к ст. NETBible: And also on that day,” says the Lord who rules over all, “I will remove 1 the names of the idols from the land and they will never again be remembered. Olshausen observes: "The expression, ‘it is delivered to me,' contains a striking note of contrariety to the doctrine of an independent principle of evil; the prince of this world has received all from God, to whom alone belongs the glory as the eternal and universal Ruler."

Obedience in Authority. If we could be justified in taking into account the ten horns, we might think of it as an explanation of the arrangement adopted here, that now Daniel's fourth beast had come into the foreground, now the beast bore the woman, Rome, on its back—see ch. It rises up out of the sea, as Daniel's four, and has ten horns, as Daniel's fourth beast, and seven heads, as Daniel's four beasts had in all-namely, one on the first, one on the second, four on the third, and one on the fourth. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.

The fourth beast could not form part of the representation here, because nothing farther is said of it in Daniel, than that it was indescribably dreadful. The dragon, therefore, was personified in the emperor of the Roman empire. It is rather the essence of that power as it appears to a certain extent in each form. The Bible teaches elsewhere that there are times when we must not submit, when it is necessary to disobey those in authority over us. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
