    Satan is one of the beast and the other is the people that rise up to follow him meaning a one world religion and has nothing to do with Rome except the fact that Rome and the Pope will join into the one worldism of the political religious leader which is Satan the beast. The world will follow the beast.

    Menno- that's the beast of Rev 13, who gives power to first beast, which is Rome. Look at all the ones reaching out. This is 500th anniversary of protestant ref.and ROME says it's over as all the Lutherans are rejoining Rome. Who is SHE to say it's over, she didn't start it, Bible believing Christians did. Deadly wound - healed. She runs kings and the world's commerce . BTW all US pres. R royalty!
