Re 18:6 Reward her even as she rewarded you. This is addressed to those who have meted out her judgments. The divine principle of judgments is that every one shall be rewarded "according" to his works. What they sow, "that" shall they reap. And double unto her double according to her works. This power shall have returned upon it in double portion what it has meted out to others.

    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.
