The Beast (or nation) in Revelation 13:2 has the same characteristics as the 3 preceding nations before it. Daniel 7:3-8.
The 1260 years was from 538 AD to 1798 AD. After the Ostrogoths were destroyed in 538 AD, the Vatican formed as a church and state power. This power ended in 1798 AD with Napoleon and the French Revolution, where the Pope was taken captive to France and the Vatican ceased from being a political entity. This was the deadly wound in Revelation 13:3.
1260 years explained:
3½ times (Daniel 7:25; 12:7; Revelation 12:14)
= 42 months (Revelation 13:5, 7)
= 1260 days (Revelation 11:3; 12:6)
= 1260 years (from 538 AD -- 1798 AD)
* In the Bible, times = years (Job 24:1; Psalm 31:10, 15)
* In the Bible, a biblical month has 30 days (Genesis 7:11, 24; 8:3-4)
* In prophecy, a day = a year (Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 4:6)
The people of God "keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." Revelation 12:17. "The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." Revelation 19:10. Thus, only God's servants (Amos 3:7), who love and obey God (keep the Sabbath), will have the privilege of understanding prophecy.
Notes on the right hand and the forehead:
In prophecy, the right hand can represent...
-To be forced against our will (Jeremiah 34:3; 38:23; 42:11; Ezekiel 21:24)
-To be in someone else's control (Genesis 16:6; Joshua 21:44; 24:8, 10, 11; Judges 2:16; 3:28; 1 Samuel 27:1; 2 Samuel 22:1; Jeremiah 37:17; 38:5; Ezekiel 21:24)
-To be wicked, violent, or undisciplined (Genesis 16:12; Isaiah 59:6; Micah 2:1; 7:3)
-To be destroyed by someone else (1 Samuel 23:17; 27:1; 2 Samuel 24:16; 2 Chronicles 28:5)
-To be in royal favour (1 Kings 2:19; Matthew 25:33)
-A symbol of physical labour or work (Ecclesiastes 9:10)
-Falsehood (Psalm 144:7-8, 11)
-Going astray (Joshua 23:6, 8; 2 Samuel 14:19; Proverbs 4:27)
-The difference of Salvation! (Job 40:14; Psalm 17:7; 108:6; Isaiah 37:20; 59:1; Matthew 5:30)
In prophecy, the forehead is...
-Where the Law of God is written under the New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-34; Hebrews 8:10-11; 10:16)
-Where the servants of God were marked in the past (Ezekiel 9:4; Revelation 9:4)
-Where the wickedness of Babylon is written (Revelation 17:5)
-Where ancient Israel was stubborn and rebellious (Jeremiah 3:3)
-Where the Seal of God will be placed in the future (Revelation 7:2-3; 14:1)
-Where the name (character) of Christ will be for the redeemed (Revelation 22:4)
Also note that:
-We serve the Law of God with our minds (Romans 7:25)
-The forehead can refer to the brave, fearless attitude, which all true servants of God will possess (Proverbs 28:1; Ezekiel 3:8-9)
When mentioned together, the right hand and the forehead indicate:
-Keeping God's principles (Exodus 13:9, 16)
-Keeping the Ten Commandments (Deuteronomy 6:6-8; 11:18)
The Seal of God exists only in the forehead, and not in the right hand. According to Isaiah 8:16, God's Law will be sealed amongst His people. In the Bible, a seal (or sign) is also a type of mark (Romans 4:11). God's SEAL is keeping His Sabbath (Exodus 31:16-17; Ezekiel 20:12, 20).
