The Beast in Satan’s Seat
Do you know where Satan’s Seat is? We shall explore that place today. “And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority,” Revelation 13:2. Today’s major reference is Revelation 13:1-5.
This one verse of Scripture above set the scene for the remainder of this chapter. Satan, “the dragon”, made the Beast his representative because he gave the latter “his power, and his seat, and great authority.” Whenever the Beast, which is a political system, demonstrates its power, Satan gets the glory because he is an agent for Satan. Now, the people of the earth will witness the power of Satan in operation and are unaware that he is behind it because Satan’s spirit is now working through a world leader. This is a clandestine operation because this leader is operating from Satan’s “Seat”. In other words, this leader is Satan, but the nations don’t have this knowledge because everything is done by deception.
Satan’s Seat in the Church?
A similar situation existed in the church in Pergamos Satan’s Seat was there among the saints. Therefore, Christ Jesus dictated a letter to John the Divine for the angel of the Church in Pergamos to inspire repentance and a turning to God, Revelation 2:16. The Lord through his letter revealed to the angel of the Church in Pergamos Satan’s Seat was among them. The angel was unaware Satan’s seat was among them because his ignorance is revealed in the Lord’s compliment, Revelation 2:13.
However, that which the angel knew concerning the operations of the Church in Pergamos, the Lord reprimanded him about, for he said, “But I have a few things against thee” then He explained His concerns in Revelation Chapter Two Verses Fourteen to Fifteen, Revelation 2:14-15. The angel in Pergamos did not know of the existence of “Satan’s Seat” because it was hidden in the church but Christ knew for He said, I know “even where Satan’s seat is“.
The Beast, demonstrates its power, for the first time, when one of its leaders was fatally wounded and he was healed by the power of Satan who got the glory, Revelation 13:3. When the peoples of the earth saw this notable miracle, they “worshipped” the Beast who is Satan’s representative.
The Wisdom of God – Jesus Christ – Reveals Satan’s Seat
The nations of the earth did not openly and knowingly worship Satan because they had no knowledge he is the spirit and the power behind the Beast. Satan did not publicly “give his power” to the Beast. This is why the Beast is such a perfect facade for Satan. Therefore, when the Scripture says, “And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast” this was worship of Satan by proxy. Satan’s Seat is hidden behind a generally acceptable political system.
Satan imitates how the Lord operates and advances the Beast to be worshipped for his glory. Don’t you say the name of Jesus when you worship the Lord God? I told you Satan Seat is a clandestine operation, for this reason when the nations worshipped Satan by proxy; they did not mention his name. Instead, they speak the name of the Beast and speak of his prowess, Revelation 13:4. The nations of the earth are unaware that by worshipping the Beast they are worshipping Satan, the nations are deceived.

The people of the earth are deceived to divert their worship away from Jesus Christ towards the Beast. The nations of the earth should worship God through Jesus Christ; instead, they are ignorantly worshipping Satan. Satan is able to achieve this because of deception. The nations perish because of lack of knowledge because they don’t know Jesus Christ. If the nations of the earth knew Jesus and had relationship with Christ, Satan could not deceive them because Jesus is the wisdom of God, 1 Corinthians 1:24.
Satan’s seat imitates the operations of the Kingson of God
The next time the Beast demonstrates his power as a world leader he did so by blasphemy. He spoke evil against God in three ways: against the name of God, against the Tabernacle in Heaven and the host of Heaven, Revelation 13:6.
Finally, Satan imitates the operations of the Kingdom of God and of Heaven. Jesus came in the name of his Father, the Holy Ghost. The Beast operates as a representative of Satan. The Lord has seven Spirits, Satan manifest as the Beast with seven heads. All heaven worships the Lamb all earth worships the Beast. All power was given to Jesus in heaven and in the earth. Satan gave the beast his power and his authority in the earth. Jesus ministry on earth lasted for three years six months; Satan allowed the Beast to represent him for forty-two months that is exactly three years six months, Revelation 13:5. Jesus was in the temple of God but was hidden from religious folks because they did not know he was the Christ. Satan is hiding in the church. The religious folks of the day and of the world don’t know Satan’s Seat is among them.
