The Two Horns

WT has the wrong interpretation when it promotes the two kings of Daniel, as the USA and Britain.
"Horns", are kings (Rev.17:12).
The "two kings"/horns, that "keep speaking lies at the same table" (eat and serve, the same lying doctrines -1Cor.10:21)(Dan.11:27), are depicted at Rev.13:11. There it reads; "Then I saw a second beast, coming out of the earth. It had **two horns like a lamb, but it spoke like a dragon."**
In speaking from the lying table of demons, they fulfill Rev.16:13-14 and 1Tim.4:1.
If we are to progress any further in the interpretation of the two kings/horns on the "beast from the earth"...
(not from the sea -Rev.13:1; Isa.57:20; Joel3:2; 1Cor.3:9)
..... then we must also accept that these two horns, are compared to the "two horns like a lamb". The primary "lamb", is Christ (John1:29; Rev.5:6).
Sheep-like ones (not goats Matt.25:33-34), would appear to belong to Christ, and seem to be following him (John10:14,27).
Christ himself has "two horns", because he also has two kings. They are two anointed kings (Rev.5:9-10; 1:5-6) who are also mentioned, at Rev.11:3... the "two witnesses". Those two horns testify to truths from Christ. This is why they are symbolized by "two" (see John8:17).
The 'earth beast' seems to have such horns... appearing to have the authority as belongs to the kings and priests of God, to speak the prophetic truth from Christ. That "two-horned" beast has an appearance of one of Christ's sheep... "like a lamb"... like one of Christ's brothers. But in actuality, it "speaks like a dragon" because it is also the false prophet among God's people... easily proven by a comparison of Rev.13:7,15-16 and Rev.19:20.
The four parts of the Image in Daniel, are also represented by beasts, at Daniel chapter 7. There you will see that the fourth beast to persecute God's nation, is described by Daniel as being "different" (Dan.7:7).
It is described as having ten horns (ten kings), and from this, we can see that it corresponds to the Beast of Rev.13:1,7.
This destroys the WT interpretation, because they say that the feet of iron and clay are USA and Britain... but they also teach, that the Beast with ten horns, is the U.N. They contradict themselves, because they don't have understanding.
One reason why the fourth beast is "different", is because it is comprised of clay, rather than the previous parts being composed exclusively of metal. The Bible tells us who comprises the clay (Isa.64:8; Eph.2:10,20-22; 1Pet.2:9-10).
The last power to persecute God's people (1Pet.2:9-10), includes the unfaithful of God's own people.... a wicked steward... a fallen heavenly star (Rev.8:10-11; 9:1; Luke12:42,45-46) who is beating his fellow servants of Christ's household.

There is an alliance in the last power (iron and clay)(Dan.2:40-43).
It is a parallel to the wicked steward's alliance with "confirmed drunkards" (Matt.24:49)... the harlot (Isa.1:21) who rides and elevates/empowers, the Gentile beast from the sea (who kills the faithful -Rev.11:7), and the false prophet, who "breathes" the image of being directed by spirit, into the ten horned beast (Rev.13:15; 19:20).
The WT's leaders are as blind leading the blind, because those leaders are the false prophet/harlot/wicked steward/clay... and the organization they "ride", is the ten-horned beast of iron, who is the "muscle" of that leadership.
Soon... all "JW's" will be shocked, because that Gentile organization will soon remove their own GB (Rev.17:16-17,8).
"Shocked", because they have not received the "proper food at the proper time", because they have mis-identified the "faithful slave" (Matt.24:45). They have not recognized the stealth reappearance of a beast of persecution against God's Elect. Instead, they worship it as being spirit-directed of God (Rev.13:8,15)(John20:22), and it's representative "elders", as a genuine priesthood over God's genuine Temple (Mark13:14; 2Thess.2:4; 1Pet.2:5; Dan.8:13; Luke21:24; Rev.13:10,7).
They have been swayed by "powerful signs and portents" (2Thess.2:9-12), like impressive building efforts and a "world-wide preaching work".
They don't realize that the final declaration of the "Good news", is for God's own people (Matt.10:23; Isa.48:20; Jer.31:11; Matt.24:22).
Another vision of Daniel, compares those same 4 powers of chapter 2, to beasts in chapter 7. The reason why such import is given to these visions (that's why God gave them), is because in the time of the fourth beast, the great tribulation occurs. It sifts those who idolize the fourth beast (Rev.13:8,16), from the few who remain loyal to the death for the sake of truth (John16:2; Mark8:35; 13:13-14; Rev.6:9-11; 12:10-11; Rom.6:5).

The spiritual battle that ensues between those few faithful messengers of truth, and the messengers of demonic teachings of demons (Rev.16:13-16; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.20:7-8; 17:14; 2Cor.10:3-5) (through the false prophet and it's beast), ---is the essence of Armageddon.

The last beast conquers God's own people (1Pet2:9-10; Rev.13:7; Matt.24:24-25; Luke21:24; Rev.13:10; Col.2:8)(Dan.8:24,11; 11:31; 2Thess.2:4; 1Cor.3:16).
If it were not for the understanding to be revealed in the time of the end....
(Dan.12:4,9; Rev.20:12),
(the days of deception/Gentile times, cut short) one would be able to be saved (Mark13:20; Luke18:26-27).
