References on the Image of or to the Beast-Part II

     This is a continuation from last month’s study, focusing on who, what, where, when, and  how the Image of the Beast is formed. Image is the Greek eikon, meaning “a likeness,” “an image.” In 2 Cor. 4: 4 and Col. 1: 15 Christ is spoken of as the eikon of God. An eikon implies an archetype and in many respects is like its archetype. An image to the first beast would be an organization functioning on much the same principles as that beast’s organization. Among the principles by which the first beast operated was the use of the secular arm to support religious institutions. In imitation the second beast will repudiate its principles of freedom. The church will prevail upon the state to enforce its dogmas. State and church will unite, and the result will be the loss of religious liberty and persecution of dissenting minorities. Compare on Revelation 13: 12; see Great Controversy 443-448.” – Footnote on Revelation 13: 14, An Exhaustive E. G. White Commentary  on Revelation, Vol. 2, p. 872.

And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth…That they should make an image to the beast. Rev. 13: 14.

Biblical NumerologyNUMBER TWO – Part XXV

DEADLY RESULT OF ATHEISM AND LICENTIOUSNESS COMBINED – Part VI

 

 “And their bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where our Lord was crucified. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.” Rev. 11: 7, 8, 10, K.J.V.

 In The Geat Controversy (1911), “The Bible and the French Revolution,” ch. 15, pp. 269-74, Ellen G. White reviews the historical fulfillment of this prophecy:

“According to the words of the prophet [John], then, a little before the year 1798 some power of satanic origin and character would rise to make war upon the Bible. And in the land where the testimony of God’s two witnesses should thus be silenced, there would be manifest the atheism of the Pharaoh and the licentiousness of Sodom. Read more
