dc.description.abstract Today many methods interpret revelation and jump to conclusion, failing to take into account the two important aspects of understanding Revelation, namely Revelation is in the first instance a divine prophecy, it is the revelation of Jesus Christ. God himself is the initiator of the methaphorical language. The literal approach to Revelation is based on three golden rules: a) scripture must be explained and proclaimed by scripture, b) prophecy is literal in nature, c) the use of methaphorical (figurative) language is absolutely dependent on the previous literal meaning. In this way the answers to any related questions will be looked for in scripture and not in the mind of the expositor. This approach prevents subjectivism and imposition of strange ideas. With this foundation in mind the very involved and complex figurative language in Revelation 12-13 is approached. Revelation itself should first be explored for solving possibilities. After these possibilities have been examined, the other prophetic literature should be taken into consideration. Revelation 12 and 13 cover a small section of the last events before Christ's final coming. The three central figures in Revelation 12 and 13 form the nucleus of the investigation. It is the dragon, the first and second beasts. This is an imitation of the divine trinity. The study concludes that the first beast is the antichrist and the second the false prophet. These two will emerge from the human race. Both are in Satan's service. en
