This article is written from the standpoint of speculation based upon current technology. It is designed to let you explore a possibility that could not have been understood until present technology was discovered. It is designed to expand possible concepts concerning this bizarre “image of the beast”. This article is not to be construed as doctrine; rather, it is presented as a possibility for the “image of the beast” based upon our rapidly changing technological world. Jesus said, “WATCH”. - January 1983 Newswatch Magazine (Disclaimer)

Is the Anti-Christ in the World Today?
There is a section of scripture that has baffled theologians and laymen alike for centuries. In most cases of Bible prophesy it is difficult to understand that prophetic setting until it is nearly upon us. That obscure passage is found in Revelation 13:14b-15: “…; [false prophet] saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an IMAGE to the beast [final world dictator], which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the IMAGE of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast SHOULD BE KILLED.”

IMAGE
The Greek word for image in Revelation 13:14-15 is ‘eikon,’ pronounced i-Kone’. Its meaning is: a likeness; in a literal sense statue, profile; or figuratively representation, resemblance. The Greek word eikon is derived from the Greek word ‘iko’ through the idea of faintness as a copy; to resemble: be like.

The Random House College Dictionary, 1973, defines image as:

1) a physical likeness or representation of a person, animal or thing, photographed, painted, sculptured, or otherwise produced.

2) An optical counterpart or appearance of an object, such as is produced by reflection from a mirror. The definition goes on to say “form; appearance; semblance; counterpart; copy.”

Webster’s New International Edition, Unabridged, definition of image is:

An imitation, representation or similitude of any person, or thing, sculptured, drawn, painted, or otherwise made perceptible to the sight; a visible presentation, a reproduction; a likeness.

3) A thing actually or seemingly reproducing another; a copy or counterpart;

7) “Something that represents, or is regarded as representing, another thing; a symbol; a representation.

Webster’s Dictionary also uses such terms as “an imitation in solid form; the optical counterpart; a picture, a reflection, an illusory form or a mental conception.” In Genesis 1:27 we read that God made man “in His own image.” The Hebrew word for image is TSELEM and carries the meaning: “shade, a phantom, illusion, resemblance; hence a representative figure, especially an idol.” Man is not an idol, rather a representative figure.
