The image, which must be made by the Earthlings for the wild beast with seven heads, looks like the image that Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream. Nebuchadnezzar’s statue represented the world powers. (See: the giant statue in the book of Daniel). The image of the beast represents – just like the image of Nebuchadnezzar – world power. This image or picture, which must be made by the Earthlings , may at the hands of “the beast with two horns” speak and has the power to kill those who do not worship the image. (Rev.13 :14-17).
What we know about this image by Revelation 13:14-17 :
NKJV (Revelation 13:14-17) 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
- It forms an image of the complete wild beast > represents all the world powers
- This image receives breathe and can speak > it is made viable
- It can kill those who do not worship him > it has received a lot of power
- Does coercion > it has a mission
- Edited that one can only (re) sell by marking > it has financial interests
- It’s made viable by Satan > it is a product of Satan
