image of the beast

Recommended Posts

the image of the beast the speaks is a book a sacred book, it is made sacred because the false prophet breaths life into it and to breath like into something means to make it sacred.  and nothing else can speak like a book does, they speak to people everyday when people read them.

How can you be sure ? It also they have to worship the image. Sounds like a idol that can appear alive.

Where is that written in scripture?  It does not sound familiar at all.

well a book can be an idol, if people follow what it says, a rival book to the bible, i cant be sure but i am pretty sure, the fact that people follow what this idol says and a book can speak when it is read, if u have a better explanation do tell.

New Living Translation
He was then permitted to give life to this statue so that it could speak. Then the statue of the beast commanded that anyone refusing to worship it must die.


Seems clear the Image has the breath of life and speaks aloud. I don't think it's anything other than an image of the beast since the 2nd beast is...

"saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast,"

That doesn't sound like writing a book.

The image of the beast is the Roman republic. Any nation that becomes a republic is an "image of the beast", which is practically all nations on the earth now.

Rome was as much a republic as the People's Republic of China is Today. It was an empire ruled by an emperor/ dictator Not of and by the people. They are all an illusion of a true republic.

Revelation 13:14 (KJV) And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

Well, let's parse the underlined passage of this verse, and put it into modern day vernacular and see if it makes sense:

...saying to them [human earth dwellers], that they, not the False Prophet, should write a 'book' to and about the beast and send it to him so that it can be worshiped? It just doesn't click for me?
