A SECOND Beast will Rise.
The coming Antichrist will have a religious partner.
Revelation 13:11-12 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (KJV) . . . The Antichrist will appear to be resurrected from a deadly wound.
The coming Antichrist will not work alone. Another man, also empowered by Satan, will rule with the Antichrist. This powerful religious leader or beast, as God sees him, will rise to power with the Antichrist. In this prophecy God reveals some important information and details concerning this coming religious man of power.
#1. Two horns like a lamb . . . tells us he will emerge with Christian credentials or doctrine, but #2. Spoke like a dragon . . . tells us he will be controlled and directed by Satan. Some think the False Prophet might be a Jew. I do NOT know WHO the man is, but I am under the impression that this could well be the pope. This person, along with the coming one-world (global) religious system he will lead, is referred to as The Woman Who Rides the Beast (Rev.17), in the book of Revelation. This evil, blood-thirsty "one-world" religion appears to rise out of Rome, the city built on seven mountains.
Rev. 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (KJV)
This religious leader will create some sort of an interactive "image" representing the Antichrist. All those who refuse to worship the image will be killed. The Bible, to my knowledge, does not tell us what exactly this image will be.
Rev. 13:13-14 And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men,  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. (KJV) This beast shall do seemingly astonishing miracles, like making fire come down to Earth from Heaven while everyone is watching. It will lead all unbelievers astray by cunning deception. He shall order the people to make a great statue of the first beast, who was fatally wounded and then came back to life.
This character will have great power attained from Satan. He will indeed do lying wonders and pretended miracles, by imitating the power of God’s Holy Spirit. He will imitate Elijah by bringing down “fire from Heaven.” He will construct an image (idol) of Antichrist, which will evidently be placed in the Temple at Jerusalem (not yet built). I believe this to be the “abomination of desolation” spoken of by Daniel and Jesus (Dan.9:24-27; 12:11; Mat.24:15).
Rev. 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. (KJV) This second beast shall have power to give supposed life to the image of the first beast, so that the image (idol) of the first beast seemingly will speak. And if anyone refuses to bow to the image of the beast, they shall be killed.
To make an image of the Antichrist, whose deadly wound was healed, would be like adding fuel to the already started fire! It would just give form and power to his worship. The False Prophet will also be able to make this idol speak. With today’s technology, this will be no great thing. For those of you who have seen the images at Disneyland, that both move and speak, know this is possible. And with each passing day, new things are brought forth. All those who refuse to worship the image of this beast, will be put to death by the False Prophet.
Rev. 13:16-17 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (KJV) He will demand that everyone . . . great and small, rich and poor, slave and free, to accept a mark on the right hand or on the forehead. NO one will be able to buy or sell anything without unless they have the mark of the beast.
He will have tremendous power. He will put out a decree that ALL people (everyone) receive a “mark” on their right hand or forehead (conspicuous spot). I don’t know if this mark will be visible to the naked eye or not. It could possibly be a tiny microchip that will be inserted under the skin. These ‘chips’ are already in use for identification purposes on pets. The tiny chip is inserted under the skin on the shoulder of a dog, cat or horse. Should the animal stray, the chip can be read, revealing to whom the animal belongs. I truly do not know exactly what or where or how this “mark” will work, but I do know it is the devil’s mark, and I do know you do NOT want any part of it! This “mark” of the beast is designed to mock the seal that God places on His people (Rev.7:2-3), Again, we have imitation and counterfeits of Satan. God marks His people to save them. Satan’s beast marks his people to save them from the persecution that Satan will inflict upon God’s followers. Identifying this particular mark is not nearly as important as identifying the purpose of the mark. Those who accept it show their allegiance to Satan. They will be able to operate within the economic system he promotes, and they show their open rebellion for God. NO ONE will be able to buy or sell or trade in any manner; without accepting Satan’s mark. That includes doctors, dentists, hospitals, banks, all stores of any kind. Anyone who refuses the mark shows that person is totally committed to God; and shows they prefer death rather than compromise their faith in Christ. It will be a terrible time! God describes these wicked men as "beasts" (Rev.13:1,2,3,4,11,12,14,15,18) because these "beasts" will slaughter and devour millions of believing Christians and Jews who will come to know Jesus Christ after the Rapture takes place.
The Second Beast in Revelation 13
The second beast in Revelation 13 will be revealed on the Earth at the same time as the first beast. These two beasts will come together and will work together.
Revelation 13:11-12 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (KJV)
See the features of the second beast:
#1. Two horns, like a lamb
#2. Speaks like a dragon
#3. Exercises authority in the presence of the first beast
#4. Forces those who dwell on the earth to worship the first beast
The False Prophet may attempt to counterfeit some or all of the real prophetic signs of the return of Christ as King of kings and Lord of lords, in order to deceive these people and accomplish his goal of world domination for his master Satan the Devil.
Because Satan appears as a glorious righteous angel and his evil servants mimic this same false righteousness (2 Cor.11:14-15), the appearance of the Antichrist and the False Prophet will fool ALL those who do not understand the truth of the scriptures that speak about the return of Christ and the establishment of the Kingdom of God on Earth.
Because the main focus of Satan's plan is to deceive people into giving their loyalty and worship to him, his servant the Antichrist will claim to be god in the flesh (2 Thes.2:4). And the other servant of Satan, the False Prophet, will force those who are under the control of the beast's alliance of nations to worship the Antichrist/Beast and his image . . . and by doing so . . . they will in reality, be worshiping Satan, exactly what he wants. Isaiah 14:13-14 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. (KJV)
BUT . . . that is not the end of this! Isaiah 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. (KJV) Rev. 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever. (KJV)
