Question 1

Where else in the Bible is the Beast of Revelation mentioned? Is he called by another name?


Daniel 7:3

"And four great beasts came up from the sea."

Daniel 7:23

"The fourth beast…shall devour the whole earth."

Daniel 7:8

"There came up among them another little horn. In this horn were eyes like the eyes of man."

The Bible uses 5 different names which all refer to this Beast of Revelation 13. Paul calls him "the son of perdition" and "the man of sin". John calls him "Anti Christ" and "The Beast". And Daniel calls him "the little horn". In Daniel chapter 7, we read about four beasts coming up from the sea. The 4th beast has 10 horns and devours the whole earth. From among his horns comes another little horn that has eyes of a man. This description matches the one describing the Beast in Revelation 13. The beast in Revelation also comes up from the sea, having 10 horns, worldwide influence, and is led by a man. The Beast in Revelation and the little horn in Daniel are the same entity. This is important to know because the little horn will help us us understand what the Mark of the Beast is.
