Revelation 13:11-17

An Image to the Beast

Revelation 13:11: “And I" [John] "beheld another beast” [The False Prophet] “coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon.”

Revelation 13:12: “And he” [The False Prophet/The Little Horn] “exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him,” [The False Prophet will have the same power as the Beast whose deadly wound was healed] “and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.”

Revelation 13:13: “And he” [The False Prophet] “doeth great wonders, so that he" [The False Prophet] "maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,”

Revelation 13:14: “And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he” [The False Prophet] “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.”

Revelation 13:15: “And he” [The False Prophet] “had power to give life unto the image of the beast,” [Idolatry] “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.” “BOTH” is referring to the ability of the image of the beast to speak, and kill those who do not worship it. The 144,000/Servants of God will not worship the image of the Beast; they will be killed during this time period.

Revelation 13:16: “And he” [The False Prophet] “causeth all," [Those not written in the Book of Life] "both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:”

Revelation 13:17: “And that no man might buy or sell, save he” [The followers of the Beast whose deadly wound was healed] “that had the mark, or the name of the BEAST, or the number of his name.”
