What will this power propose that the people shall do?

Answer

"Saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound
by a sword, and did live." Verse 14, latter part.
NOTE - The beast "which had the wound by a sword, and did live," is the Papacy. That was a
church dominating the civil power. In other words, it was a union of church and state, and enforced its
religious dogmas by the civil power, under pain of confiscation of goods, imprisonment, and death. An
image to this beast would be another ecclesiastical organization clothed with civil power-another union of
church and state-to enforce religious dogmas by law.
