As it says in Revelation 13 that, “One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed.” The latter quote passage in Revelation uses the word “seem”, this is an illusion of deception and power used to create and make it “seem” like his beast has miraculously come to life. Since he cannot perform genuine miracles he will do what he can do like transform the work of the witnesses into his perverted version of Christianity. He also feels he must proclaim just as God did, in order to discredit their works, which threatens his reign on earth. Such illusions and tricks of words and lies will be used to convince many.
What is meant by, “The dragon stood on the shore of the seashore” means that the Dragon has made a transition from the heavenly body and now finds himself upon the earth. In other words, this marks that he has been cast out and has come to Earth. He is no longer to work in secret within the hearts of men, but in “full view” where he will perform many signs. Satan does not perform miracles; he performs compromise, influence and illusions.
The latter means that here now begins a desperate attempt to regain his power because he realizes he has been cast out of Heaven, and that he has a short time. He then “gave” his power to the “beast coming out of the sea”, which are the Dragon’s faithful loyalists who have been molded by his spiritual handy works and political influence, the predators that have cultivated positions of power and ranks within government and politics. This inhuman spiritual nation of satanically faithful men will inject Satan’s spiritual darkness, death and fury throughout the earth. Satan is allowed by God to rule in full force without any restraints. This means bloodshed and persecution. By JRCarrillo author of: The Phases of Revelation
