The Beast from the Earth: United States in Prophecy:
Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (Revelation 13:11, 12, NKJV)
To understand the symbols in this prophecy and how it applies to the United States, it is necessary to allow Scripture to first define them. In the Bible, “beasts” are symbols of geo-political powers. Daniel was shown four beasts rising out of the sea: Daniel spoke, saying, “I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.
(Daniel 7:2, 3)
Daniel was puzzled by the vision. He did not understand the symbols used. “I, Daniel, was grieved in my spirit within my body, and the visions of my head troubled me. I came near to one of those who stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me and made known to me the interpretation of these things: ‘Those great beasts, which are four, are four kings which arise out of the earth.’ (Daniel 7:15-17)
Thus, beasts represent geo-political powers. While there have been many kingdoms exercising near-worldwide control throughout history, Scripture focuses specifically on those which war against Heaven. “I saw another beast coming up out of the earth . . . .” (Revelation 13:11)
The first beast John saw in Revelation 13 symbolizes the papacy. Prophecy foretold that the beast, the papacy, would receive a deadly wound: “And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded . . . .” (Revelation 13:3, KJV)
This wounding of the papacy culminated in a series of events in 1798, right around the time the beast from the earth, the United States, was rising into power. The second beast which John sees in Revelation 13 is unique from all others because it arises out of the land. Later, John is told: “The waters which you saw . . . are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.” (Revelation 17:15)
Therefore, the beast from the earth must be a world-wide power that arises out of a sparsely populated area of the world.
The beasts Daniel saw, as well as the first beast John saw in Revelation 13, arose out of turbulent seas. New nations usually arise by first overthrowing other nations, and then taking their place. However, there was no other nation overturned in order to make room for the United States. Thus, it is a fitting symbol for this beast to arise out of the land. “He had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon . . . .” (Revelation 13:11)
The beast from the earth is described as having two horns, like a lamb. It is not a lamb-like beast. Rather, its horns are deceptive. It is still a powerful beast of prey, but the horns look small, harmless and even benevolent, like a gentle lamb. For two centuries, the United States, a young, recently-risen power, fit the description. She did not seek to colonize other nations and she opened her shores to all who were fleeing persecution in their home countries.
“He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.” (Revelation 13:13)
Of all the nations of the earth, the United States swiftly arose to a position of power, influence and wealth. Technology flourished and the scientific and industrial advances flowing from this nation have affected, in one way or another, the lives of virtually everyone in the world. “He exercises all the authority of the first beast . . . and causes [forces] those who dwell in it to worship the first beast.” (Revelation 13:12)
Rather than being the last bastion of religious liberty left in the world, the two-horned beast assumes world-wide authority that does not rightfully belong to it. This use of force, which is a principle of Satan’s kingdom, is employed to enforce worship of another beast, representing Catholicism.
