666

16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”

The Image of the Beast

14 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.

15 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.”

Another Beast

“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.” (Rev 13:11 KJV)

This beast is the false prophet. He works hand-in-hand with the antichrist to persecute the saints and persuades the world to worship the beast. Coming up out of the earth refers to the earthly system, which could refer to government, religion, or both.

Wounded to Death

“And I saw 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 KJV)

One possibility is that the antichrist is actually killed and resurrected by Satan, possibly through the false prophet. Some believe that he is actually indwelt by Satan and that Satan rules through him. This could be Satan’s attempt to mimic the resurrection of Jesus.
