We are met in this chapter for the first time, explicit mention made of the beast. Until now, not a single mention of this character has been made by name; everything that we have said about him, we have done so by inference. Before Revelation 11, the word “beast” in reference to the Antichrist is nowhere to be found; yet after Revelation 11; the word “beast” in reference to the Antichrist occurs no less than 36 times.
In this teaching, we begin to look at little closer at the beast along with the two witnesses. Who are these two witnesses and what is their purpose? We shall answer these questions along with others as we explore this eleventh chapter of Revelation.
