The first beast of Revelation is Abaddon-Apollyon, the angelic king of the abyss ..... this beast is satan's "antichrist" [Revelation 9:11; 11:7, 13:1; 17:8]
Satan [the dragon] will give this fallen angelic his power and authority to do his bidding on the earth
This fallen angelic will manifest himself in the little horn, human king of the north, viewed in Daniel's visions .... the little horn will become the beast
This entity will be followed by 10 other human kings and he will bestow these kings with positions in his government
The 10 crowns are symbolic of the position of political rule

1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts
