Revelation 13 opens with the dragon standing on the shore and continues by revealing two different beasts. Most people believe that the first beast is the antichrist and the second is the false prophet. Is that true? Looking at how the Bible defines antichrist in John’s epistles leads Dr. Bramson to define antichrist as any spirit or religious system that denies that Jesus came in the flesh. This leads to the question, “Is the first beast a person or a religious system?” Digging into the book of Daniel helps to answer this question.
You may find Dr. Bramson’s book, Revelation Decoded: The Easiest Book in the Bible, to be a valuable tool as you listen to the Revelation series. Revelation Decoded is available here.
