The Beast from the Sea
Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name.
The sea and/or waters is indicative, at times, of masses of people. In my dream I saw a mass of people, however, they had their backs to me but were silhouettes and I could not make out anybody. Then I saw an individual arise out of the mass, once again, a silhouette and his back was to me so I could not make him out nor provide a description. Then I saw what looked like a religious leader seated on a throne looking out over the masses. I believe it to be the Pope. Being that the masses were in front of him meant, at least to me, that he had control of them and ruled over them. It seemed that he recognized the one ascending from the masses because he arose from his throne to greet him. I could barely recognize the one that had been seated on the throne because I was standing in the back of the mass of people, however, I could make out the garb he was wearing hence my saying he was a/the pope.
That was the end of my dream. As with anything I post take this to the Lord in prayer.
