A Fourth Beast Of Daniel 

A rider of the red horse with power to take peace from the earth.  He was also given the key of the bottomless pit  –  Sebeos may have been the first to see Islam as the true fourth beast of Daniel.  Others like Tom Holland “In The Shadow of The Sword” would recognize this.  There is something about the Temple that makes a beast a beast.

look for

A Bottomless Pit 
and you will find it in chapters 9, 11, 17, and 20.  In chapter 9 the bottomless pit is opened.  In chapter 11 the beast comes out of the bottomless pit to attack the two witnesses.  In chapter 17 the beast comes out of the bottomless pit to attack the Lamb and the whore.  In chapter 20 the dragon is bound for a thousand years.  This is a good time to talk about recapitulation.   

Watch for more pieces that fit.  Blessed is the one who looks.
