How are the character, work, period of supremacy, and great power of the beast described?

Answer

"And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto
him to continue forty and two months. And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme
His name, and His tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with
the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations!'
Verses 5-7.
NOTE - All these specifications have been fully and accurately met in the Papacy, and identify
this beast as representing the same power as that represented by the little horn phase of the fourth beast of
Daniel 7, and the little horn of Daniel 8, in its chief and essential features and work. See Dan. 7:25;
8:11,12,24,25, and readings on pages 23, 29. For an explanation of the time period mentioned, see pages
27, 34.
