World Worships The β€œImage Of The Beast”
This [modern] beast-power deceives the earth-dwellers (using those miracles it gets power to perform [in fulfillment] of the [world-domination] vision of the [ancient] Gentile [global-empires]).
[The 2nd beast-power] instructs the earth-dwellers to make an image [honoring] the [1st] beast-system (which suffered the [apparently fatal] sword-wound, yet survives).
Timeline
Note: 1st beast=Babylonian/Greco-Roman Empire.
2nd beast=Democratic socialism, the NWO, the United Nations.
Same evil: mankind overriding the Creator's laws.

Modern media = the human beast-population staring at itself in a mirror.
Examples: social media, television, coins featuring pagan gods and dead presidents.
These devilish-tools came immediately after Hiroshima, the fire coming down from the sky.

Mass media is a nonstop, worldwide multi-channel image-orgy of sex, money, violence and beastly power.
