What Is the Second "Beast" of Rev. 13?
Herbert W Armstrong   
Church of God

Born: July 31, 1892

Member Since: 1928
Ordained: 1931
Office: Apostle

Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

John saw a beast having "two horns like a lamb," but it spoke as a dragon! It imposed the MARK of the first "beast." What is this second lamb-like "beast"? SATAN has his civil government on earth. He gave it "his power, and his seat, and great authority." He also has an ecclesiastical organization - a CHURCH - as his instrumentality in deceiving the world. In 2 Corinthians 11:14, we find Satan is transformed into an "ANGEL OF LIGHT." According to Rev. 12:9 and 20:3, he has DECEIVED the whole world. How? Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 11:13-15. Satan has HIS ministers who pretend to be the ministers of righteousness, but are actually false apostles, deceitful workers, calling themselves the ministers of Christ! Therefore they claim to be CHRISTIAN ministers. They are the MANY, not the few, because all prophecies say it is the MANY, not the few, who have been DECEIVED. Satan's main labor for six thousand years has been the deceiving of the world.
