The Beast from the Land
Just as the Beast of the Sea personified an individual, the Beast from the Earth personified another evil
human being. This is a distinction from the beast from the Abyss, which is an evil fallen angel, and who is
responsible for killing the Two Witnesses (Rev 11:7).
This individual, described as having two horns as a lamb and spoke as a dragon, presumably
was a male who spoke like Satan (Rev 13:11).
He has the authority to make the whole earth worship the Antichrist
With the intent to deceive, he performs miracles to encourage the worship of the Antichrist
including the making of Antichrist idols (Rev 13:14-15).
Anyone who did not worship the Antichrist or his image was killed
In order to participate in any aspect of the economy, everyone in the whole wide world had
to have the mark of the Antichrist or his number 666 on their right hand or forehead
The apostle John does not say when the Beast from the Earth arrives nor the duration of his influence.
Although he was introduced as the Beast from the Earth, the apostle later identified him as the False Prophet
which described the role and relationship he had with the Antichrist
(Rev 16:13; 19:20;
