Leopard = ISIS (Greece/Syria)
Bear = Media-Persia (ISIS, Turkey, Iran, Iraq)
Lion = Babylon 
The ‘1st beast’ of Rev 13:2 Is the one who rises up out of the joined forces of the Leopard (ISIS (Greece/Syria), Bear  (Media-Persia (ISIS (Turkey, Iraq, Iran)), Lion (Babylon). The Arab countries are aligning themselves now. ISIS, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Turkey, Greece, American Muslims. Eze 38:5 ‘……Persia, Ethiopia and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet:’
HAS THE DRAGON GIVEN ISIS HIS POWER, HIS THRONE, AND GREAT AUTHORITY?

Revelation Chapter 13:14 through 13:18 is about the 2nd Beast. HE is granted permission to perform great signs (13:7). Granted permission to build the image of the 1st Beast and granted permission to cause anyone who does not worship the 1st Beast to be killed (13:15).  

It is the 2nd Beast who causes all to have the sign of the 1st Beast, ‘to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads’ (13:16). It is HE who we believe is the ‘False Prophet’.(16:13) ..I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.  

It is this ‘False Prophet’, Beast, Amazing person who Hates the Harlot, Babylon. It is the False Prophet who I also believe has 3 and one half  years, who will lead the battle of Armageddon.         

It is the 1st Beast’s number (666) and who goes into perdition (17:8), who the dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority(13:2) and who is worshipped by all whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world (13:8). 

“For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.” (17:17) 

The Revived Roman Empire, represented by the Dan 2:42And [as] the toes of the feet’,10 toes (I believe is the revived Ottoman Empire), Dan 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom,

The woman sitting on the beast is the harlot, Babylon.

BABYLON. Someone once said America is the new Babylon. Since that was said there are more choices:

Dubai  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubai  Dubai (/dˈb/ doo-BYArabic: دبيّ‎ DubayyIPA: [dʊˈbæj]) is a city in the United Arab Emirates, located within the emirate of the same name. The emirate of Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has the largest population in the UAE (2,106,177) and the second-largest land territory (4,114 km2) after the capital, Abu Dhabi.[4] Abu Dhabi and Dubai are the only two emirates to have veto power over critical matters of national importance in the country’s legislature.[5] The city of Dubai is located on the emirate’s northern coastline and heads up the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area. Dubai is often misperceived as a country or city-state and, in some cases, the UAE as a whole has been described as ‘Dubai’

Abu Dhabi houses important offices of the federal government, and is the seat for the UAE (United Arab Emirates Government) and the home for the Abu Dhabi Emiri Family and the President of the UAE from this family. Abu Dhabi has grown to be a cosmopolitan metropolis. Its rapid development and urbanisation, coupled with the relatively high average income of its population, has transformed Abu Dhabi to a larger and advanced metropolis. Today the city is the country’s center of politicalindustrial activities, and a major cultural, and commercial centre due to its position as the capital. Abu Dhabi alone generated 56.7% of the GDP of the United Arab Emirates in 2008.

Saudi Arabia, an absolute monarchy ruled by six kings.    http://www.debka.com/newsupdate/7535/    Is this emirate playing the Babylon roll???  3/27/14   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2014/03/27/saudi-arabia-names-king-abdullah-half-brother-prince-muqrin-second-in-line-to/ Thursday’s appointment puts to rest questions about who would succeed Crown Prince Salman, the king’s designated successor.

Bahrain, the King, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa; the head of government is the Prime Minister, Shaikh Khalīfa bin Salman al Khalifa a constitutional monarchy  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bahrain .   Bahrain – Kingdom of the Two Seas. Bahrain is a constitutional monarchy headed by the King, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa; the head of government is the Prime Minister, Shaikh Khalīfa bin Salman al Khalifa, who presides over a cabinet of twenty-five members, where 80% of its members are from the royal family. In a region experiencing an oil boom, Bahrain has the fastest growing economy in the Arab world, the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia found in January 2006. Bahrain also has the freest economy in the Middle East according to the 2011 Index of Economic Freedom published by the Heritage Foundation/Wall Street Journal, and is tenth freest overall in the world.

BASRA has a major role in H.G. Wells‘s 1934 future history “The Shape of Things to Come” “where the Iraqi city is at the center of a world state emerging after a collapse of civilization and becomes in effect the capital of the world.” Basra is home to all of Iraq’s six ports; Umm Qasr is the main deep-water port with 22 platforms, some of which are dedicated to specific goods (such as sulfur, seeds, lubricant oil, etc.) The other five ports are smaller in scale and more narrowly specialized. Fishing was an important business before the oil boom. The city also has an international airport, with service into Baghdad with Iraqi Airways—the national airline.

Qatar – Since 1995, Emir Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani has ruled Qatar, seizing control of the country from his father Khalifa bin Hamad Al Thani while the latter vacationed in Switzerland. Under Emir Hamad, Qatar has experienced a notable amount of sociopolitical liberalization, including the endorsement of women’s suffrage or right to vote, drafting a new constitution, and the launch of Al Jazeera, a leading English and Arabic news source which operates a website and satellite television news channel.The International Monetary Fund states that Qatar has the highest GDP per capita in the world, followed by Luxembourg. The World Factbook ranks Qatar at second, following Luxembourg.

America is not mentioned in the Bible. It would be reasonable to assume then America has no role in the ‘last days’ playing out. Thus, if America were to prosper and continue affecting the governments, politics and wars it would never play out the way God purposes it to be. Therein the results of American politics has well played into the purpose of God. Americans must take joy in knowing the return of our Lord Jesus Christ is imminent.  Pray for strength, courage and each other to endure whatever plays out till our Lord Jesus Christ returns. www.revelationlastday.com

 The EU, UN, GCC, etc.

The 1st Beast – The one who rises up out of the united countries of (ISIS (Greece, Syria)), Media Persia (ISIS,Turkey, Iran, Iraq), Babylon. Who hates Babylon? And the 10 kings – 17:12who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast 17:16And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.”

 When the 1st Beast, the one who rises up out of the united countries,  and the ten horns destroy Babylon, the beast will then be in control of all the world and the EU will worship the beast by acknowledging his authority and power.

Rev 17:16“And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.” 9:2,11; 11:7; 12:3,9,13; 13:1; 17:3,8,16; 18:18; 19:20; 20:2,3,10; Isa 13:19; Malachi 4:1; 

If the harlot is Babylon (17:15), and the 10 countries (17:16) hate the harlot, then combined countries against Israel hate Babylon and the question is, ‘Who is Babylon’?

Babylon destroyed in one day.
Isa 13:19; And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
Malachi 4:1; For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.
The Ten Toes are often referred to as the Roman Empire cracked up but still the 4th kingdom and reviving now in our day. I believe it will be the Ottoman Empire revived.

Chapter 13:1-10 describes the 1st beast and is separated from verses 11-18 because they describe the 2nd beast and how he worships the 1st beast. Chapter 13 gives a spiritual description of the 1st and 2nd beasts works and covers all of the 7 years – the 1st beast’s 3 ½ yrs and then the 2nd beast’s 3 ½ years. Notice verse 13:5 specifically states the 1st beast has 3 ½ years. Dan 2:36-44; 7:3-7; Zech 1:18-21; Rev 17:12; All refer to the same World Kings and Countries. Zech 1:2,21 The 4 artisans may refer to the 4 horsemen of Rev 6:1-8; Isa 26:21.

Rev 13:1 THEN I stood on the sand of the sea and I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name
9:2,11; 11:7; 12:3,9,13; 13:1; 17:3,8,16; 19:20; 20:2,3,10; (Isa 27:1) Eze 28:12-13,15,17-19; Dan 7:7-28; 8:23-25; 9:27; 11:16,36-38; Zech 1:19; 2 Thess 2:3-4;

1st Beast – 7 heads, 10 horns, 10 crowns
Note: Rev 12:3 The Great Red Dragon, Satan, has – 7 heads, 10 horns, 7 crowns

Rev 13:8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. 3:5; 13:8; 20:12,15; 21:27; 22:19; Ex 17:14; Ps 69:28; Dan 12:1; Rev 17:8; 20:12,14; Phil 4:3;

1st Beast

Book of Life

I have heard it said there are a set of books in heaven. (Hal Lindsey gives quite a good explanation of the books.) There is a book of life with the name of every person who has ever lived or will live, written down. I believe this is so, and that the names are names God has given them. The DNA could easily be the Identifier of every soul. Not a name we would recognize as our name now, but what God has named him.
There is a book of Works, which lists every deed good or bad for each person. Then there are a couple of other books mentioned by Lindsey. Then Tim LaHaye says he believes there is a ‘Lamb’s Book of Life’ Rev 21:27, which I believe is the book, ‘The Book of Life.’ When a soul determines not to accept Christ as their personal Savior their name is erased from the Book of Life. That still leaves their names in the book of works, and they are judged from that book. The Calvanists believe having your name in the book of life is the list of who God has chosen to be saved from the beginning of time. I believe, as I have said, it is the name of every person God has planned to create from the beginning of time. Each one chooses life or death. Having one’s name erased from that book is spiritual death.

Ex 17:14; And the LORD said unto Moses, Write this [for] a memorial in a book, and rehearse [it] in the ears of Joshua: for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven.

Ps 69:28; Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.

Dan 12:1; And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation [even] to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Rev 17:8; 20:12,15; The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: 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 that was, and is not, and yet is.

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire

Phil 4:3; And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and [with] other my fellowlabourers, whose names [are] in the book of life.
