no jesus the man, jesus the prophet, wasn't the beast. the anti-christ was even during the time of the apostles, still is today. what is amazing is that christians say that god is the same today, as yesterday, and tomorrow. unfortunately they seem to ignore the fact that jesus isn't the same today, yesterday, and tomorrow. they worship the image/personality of the beast.<quoted text>"so do you worship the beast who once was, now is not, yet will come? jesus"

know now how he works... Christ is not the beast...
It's the Europian union, AKA Roman Empire, and the Islamic
