Satan has 7 heads and 10 horns
In the book of Revelation Satan is described as having 7 heads and 10 horns. In Revelation 12 he is called the dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns. In Revelation 13 and 17 he is called the beast with 7 heads and 10 horns. In each case the Bible is describing the same being. Whenever you see a creature in the Bible with 7 heads and 10 horns you can know immediately that it is talking about Satan. Let’s look at Revelation 12.
Satan is the Dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns
“And another sign appeared in heaven, behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.” Revelation 12:3
“And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.” Revelation 12:7-9
Notice that the great red dragon with seven heads and ten horns is also called Satan, the Devil, and the serpent of old. These are all different names for the same fallen angel.
The great red dragon with seven heads and ten horns is Satan. He is a sinful, fallen angel. He used to be perfect and he lived in heaven. He was the commander of all the angels in heaven. But he became proud and sinful. He convinced 1/3 of the angels in heaven to worship him instead of God.
God was very patient with Satan and loving towards him. But Satan persistently refused to repent and return to God. Eventually Satan and his evil angels started a war against Michael (Jesus Christ) and His angels.
The dragon with seven heads and ten horns and his evil angels were thrown out of heaven and came to our earth. Satan and millions of his demons have been living on planet earth for thousands of years. But most of that time they have been invisible to people. But they were still able to tempt people and and prompt them to do many evil things.
Satan and his demons are mostly confined to live in the spirit world, which is invisible to people. This is soon to change dramatically!
Satan becomes the Beast with 7 heads and 10 horns
“And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.” Revelation 13:1
The beast has 7 heads and 10 horns, just like the dragon has 7 heads and 10 horns. The dragon and the beast are both Satan. The dragon is his invisible form and the beast is his visible form. Anytime you see a creature in the Bible with 7 heads and 10 horns you know that it is describing Satan.
The dragon has existed for thousands of years and he and his demons live in the spirit world. Very soon the dragon will transform himself into a beautiful, glorious, visible being. He will come out of the spirit world and will appear on earth in a glorious, physical body. He will claim to be God. This is when Satan the dragon becomes Satan the beast.
