"He exercises all the authority of the First Beast ... " (Revelation 13:12 NASB)

The Antichrist, False Prophet and False Idol: Revelation 13:2, 11-14 (NASB)

Revelation 13:2, 11-14  Here we see Satan pictured as a Dragon standing on the seashore.  The First Beast, the Antichrist arises from the sea.  The Second Beast, the False Prophet arises from the Earth.  The False Prophet performs Satanic miracles, deceiving the people of the Earth into erecting a False Idol to the Antichrist:

2 And the Beast (Antichrist) which I saw was like a leopard, and his (Antichrist's) feet were like those of a bear, and his (Antichrist's) mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the Dragon (Satan) gave him his (Satan's) power and his (Satan's) throne and great authority.
11
Then I saw another Beast (False Prophet) coming up out of the Earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a Dragon (Satan).
12 He exercises all the authority of the First Beast (Antichrist) in his (Antichrist's) presence. And he makes the Earth and those who dwell in it to worship the First Beast (Antichrist) whose fatal wound was healed.
13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of Heaven to the Earth in the presence of men.
14 And he deceives those who dwell on the Earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the Beast (Antichrist), telling those who dwell on the Earth to make an image (False Idol) to the Beast who (Antichrist) had the wound of the sword and has come to life.
