The First Beast—Comparing Daniel 7 and Revelation 13
Revelation 13 discusses two beasts: the beast from the sea and the beast from the earth. These beasts will have great authority at the end of time and use their power to enforce the Beast's mark. The first beast of Revelation 13 has seven heads and ten horns—and the same attributes as the little horn of Daniel 7.

Identifying the Antichrist
Daniel's dream in Daniel 2 describes a little horn that arises from among the ten horns of the fourth terrible beast. The little horn represents the Antichrist. Daniel 2 gives a good description of this power, allowing us to clearly identify who this end-time enemy will be.
It arose out of the fourth beast Mark of the Beast It came up among the ten horns It came up after the ten horns It was to uproot three horns It was to be greater than the others It was to be different than the others It would have eyes of a man and speak against God It was to make war on God's saints It would think to change times and laws The saints were to be handed over to it It shall devour the whole earth It shall reign until the Ancient of Days comes Its dominion will be taken away Others who identify the Antichrist
