The Main Players of End Time Prophecy

The Bible uses symbology throughout it’s revealing of the future. These symbols can seem confusing at first or even bizarre. However, with a better understanding of the whole council of God (Bible), the symbols become clear in the understanding of Jewish history as written in the Old Testament. The following is a quick layout of the main “players” of end-time prophecy. The relevant scripture is posted. For more detail, click the personalities above.

The Beast From The Sea (Revelation 13:1-11) = The man of sin, “antichrist”

  • Ascends out of bottomless pit into perdition, Apollyon (Revelation 17:8) [Greek god Apollo?] ~ Revelation 9:11 Related News: Greek gods prepare for comeback
  • Like a leopard (quick & powerful?)
  • Feet as a bear (powerful and deadly claws, military?)
  • Mouth as a lion (powerful orator?)
  • “...the dragon [Lucifer] gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.” (Revelation 13:2)
  • One of 7 heads (see below) wounded to death and healed and the world wonders after the beast
  • “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.” (3½ years or the last half of the 70th week of Daniel)
  • He’s given the opportunity and power to make war with, and overcome the saints. He’s also given power over the whole world.
  • 7 Heads (Revelation 17:9) = 7 mountains the woman sits on. (Vatican is city on seven hills) however, it goes on to talk about the 7 kings. Are the mountains representative of 7 historical kingdoms over which the Vatican presided?
    • 7 kings (Revelation 17:10-11) (Leaders of the 7 historical kingdoms [7 mountains] on which the Vatican presided over [sits]?)
      • 5 fallen (Past “Anti-Christ’s” controlling kingdoms?)
      • 1 is (Current wave of rebellion and apostasy? Falling away? One-world religion encouraged by Vatican [see “Woman” below])
      • 1 is not yet come (when he comes, continues short [puny] while. He then receives his head wound and comes back. (Revelation 13:3) Hence, “And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition”) This is saying, I think, that the seventh king that comes will be the beast (Anti-Christ). He will be wounded in the head and when he comes back, he won’t be entirely himself alone, but indwelt. He will be a different man, but the same body under Lucifer’s (dragon) control. This is beast 1, the “antichrist.”
        • So the 1st Beast is the seventh king. Then he is wounded to death, but lives. That is why the “Anti-Christ” is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition. (Revelation 17:11) This identifies the beast with Apollyon (Revelation 9:11) and one of the 7 kings who is resurrected or saved by the dragon, at which point he becomes the evil anti-Christ we all know and despise.
    • Personal Theory on future events based on scripture: I personally believe that the deadly wound by the sword may happen at the abomination of desolation. I think, like the Maccabean revolt, the Jews will realize that the great peacemaker is not who he seems when he declares himself God in their temple. I think that perhaps that will prompt an assassination attempt by a religious Jew or group of Jews. The dragon will save the beast and the world will be amazed. In retaliation, the newly revived and dragon-controlled beast will order the genocide of all Jews in Judea. The Muslim hoards will probably be worked into a fervor and go through Jerusalem and Judea like a wave of murder, (Joel 2:1-11) killing 2/3 of Israel. (Zechariah 13:8,9) That is their stated goal, to wipe Israel off the map. (great tribulation) That’s why Christ said for them in Judea to run to the mountains (Matthew 24:15-21) when they see the abomination of desolation. Because soon after that, the Anti-Christ will order the genocide. The passage about accepting one that comes in his own name (John 5:43) is talking about the time of relative peace just prior to the abomination of desolation, I believe. Why? If he’s going to kill all the Jews he can, why would they accept him as their Messiah? It doesn’t add up. However, a great diplomat will work a peace deal between Israel and the Muslims to allow the rebuilding of the Jewish temple on the Temple Mount, so my guess is that is when they will accept him.
  • 10 Horns (Revelation 17:12-14) = 10 kings without kingdoms for one hour with the first beast, the Anti-Christ. (Muslim EU Member nations? Also the 10 clay toes of Daniel 2:41-44?)
    • They give their power to the beast.
    • They hate the woman riding the beast (Revelation 17:16,17)
    • 10 Crowns upon the 10 horns = Authority and ruler ship of the 10 horns which they give to the beast. (What Christians do with their crowns before Christ. Revelation 4:10-11)

The Beast From The Earth (Revelation 13:12-18) = The False Prophet

  • Two horns like a lamb, speaks like a dragon [Lucifer]
  • Has all the power of the 1st beast (Anti-Christ)
  • Makes all in the earth worship the 1st Beast with the head wound.
  • Does great wonders like calling fire from heaven in the presence of the 1st Beast. (With these things he deceives the world into worshipping the beast, and making an image to him, who was wounded by the sword but lived)
  • Able to give life to the image of the Beast so that it speaks and kills anyone who doesn’t worship at it.
  • Makes everyone get a mark of the Beast in order to buy or sell anything.

The Restrainer (2 Thessalonians 2:1-4)

Woman Riding the Beast (Revelation 17:1-6;16-18) = (Mystery Babylon? Vatican?)

  • “Great whore that sits upon many waters” (comprised of many peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues so it must not be a nation, but a religious system comprised of members from many nations)
  • Great city reigning over kings of the earth.
  • Hated by the 10 horns (Revelation 17:16-17)

Woman of Revelation 12 (Revelation 12:1-5)

Revelation 12:1-5
And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

The dragon is clearly Satan, and the man-child is clearly Christ. The woman you say on the basis of Genesis is very generalized to include the church it sounds like. There’s more symbology that can’t just be overlooked. Everything in scripture is there for a reason. Bypassing certain things and basing a theory on incomplete evidence isn’t solid foundation. There’s a couple symbols you left out of your assessment.

  • A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars with child [singular]

Genesis 37:9-11
And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.

  • According to how Jacob himself interpreted this:
    • Sun = Jacob (Israel) [Rev12 woman: clothed with the sun, identified by her clothing which is Israel]
    • Moon = Rachel (mother) [Rev12 woman: standing upon]
    • 11 stars = 11 brothers [Rev12 woman: crowned with the 12 tribes of Israel (their father). We see the 12 tribes identified with the doorways in and out of New Jerusalem as well. (Revelation 21:12)]
  • She brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron
Psalms 2:9
Thou [Yeshua] shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

Revelation 19:15
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he [Yeshua] should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Revelation 2:27
And he [he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end] shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. *We are fellow heirs with Christ, not the other way around. The prophecy of Revelation 12 is specifically talking about Christ being born through Israel and being caught up to God.
  • The Meshiach Nagid was prophesied to come from the lineage of Israel along with other prophecies that place Christ being born of a virgin and of Jewish lineage. Indeed, all of our scriptures are Jewish and Romans 11 is quite clear on how important Israel still is to Him.

Now this all fits perfectly and we see more clearly using all of the scripture and spanning all of scripture, from beginning to end, that the Meshiach Nagid would be Jewish. The prophecy of Revelation 12 clothes the woman with the symbol for Israel as seen in a vision by Joseph and recognized as symbolizing himself, his wife and 11 sons by Jacob. I didn’t have to interpret anything with my own conclusions, the Bible did it all. That is a more sure foundation on what these symbols mean.


(Revelation 17:15) = Peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues
