I have this theory that the beasts of revelations could well be entities that we are familiar with. The beasts of revelations could already be here and are operating right in front of us… Israel and the USA.
Almost every interpretation of revelations leaves out these entities as candidates for the beasts.
I willl now present my interpretation of revelation 13 and present the very real possibility that Israel and the USA, “the good guys” in a world of evil muslim terrorists are actually the entities that christians know as the beasts of revelation.

FIRST BEAST = Modern state of Israel/ zionism.

“The dragon gave the beast his power and his throne and great authority.”
-The dragon has given the modern day state of Israel authority in that region and even in the US. It carries out its crimes with impunity and the world does not notice. And no, the puny missiles fired by the palestinians and hezbollah can hardly be compared to the airpower and armor that Israel uses.

One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.
-Fatal wound= Possible reference to the holocaust, which ultimately led to the formation of Israel.

The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast.
-Possible reference to the “birth of Israel”. Not sure what “the whole world” being amazed means, because a later verse talks of the beast attacking Gods people.

The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise its authority for forty-two months.
-The modern state of Israel is NOT a restored old testament era Israel as imagined by many christians. It is a secular state with all the irreligious activities of a modern european/American city.

It was given power to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. 
-The only people who are being subjected to war and being conquered now are muslims. Not the christians or the jews or the hindus or the buddhists.

And it was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. 
-It could mean that the modern state of Israel has authority over every nation containing the lost Israelite tribes. So that means, its mostly the middle east and regions nearby (Refer to theory of Pashtuns being descended from Israelites)

“If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go. 
-Guantanamo. Reference to muslims.

If anyone is to be killed with the sword, with the sword they will be killed. 
Violence perpetrated towards muslim countries, under the pretext of “war on terror”.

SECOND BEAST = USA/Christian zionism

It had two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon. 
Reminds me of the “christian” nation USA.
Outwardly christian but does nothing that resembles what christ taught… instead constantly flexes its military might. (George W.Bush, was a christian and claimed divine inspiration for the war on terror)

It exercised all the authority of the first beast on its behalf, and made the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose fatal wound had been healed.
Explains USAs unconditional support of Israel… and the US government being infiltrated by Israelis… and also the possibility that the USA is in fact a zombie that is being controlled from within by a few Israeli entities.

Again, not sure what the word “worship” exactly means. I just cant imagine groups such as atheists “worshipping” something. If it is the case, then this could lead to a hilarious scenario where religious people and atheists would fight side by side against an enemy whos trying to force them to worship something against their will.

And it performed great signs, even causing fire to come down from heaven to the earth in full view of the people.
Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Arial assaults in the war on terror? Does anyone remember the footage during the initial moments of the war against iraq where “fire came down” on cities?

Because of the signs it was given power to perform on behalf of the first beast, it deceived the inhabitants of the earth.
Could refer to the world decieved by the “war on terror”. Every MSM entity around the world parrots what the US goverment says. “islamic terrorists did 9/11”, “Saddam has WMDs”, “Osama was killed by the SEALS”.
Also, most of the US middle east activities are on behalf of Israel (first beast)


could mean that the whole world was decieved by the doctrines of christianity itself… that you can be saved by a man dying for your sins… something that goes against basic OT theology…which Jesus himself said he was going to preserve.

The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. 
Not sure what this means, but it sounds like the final stages of an Israeli plan being implemented by a zionist controlled America.

It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.
-Could refer only to people in a certain geographic location where the beasts operate from… i.e Israel and America. IMO, the mark of the beast system would be implemented in these places first.
