The Beast of Revelation 11:7

The beast of Rev 11:7 is merely a footnote on the origin of the dragon, beast and false prophet:

The dragon came up from the bottomless pit. Revelation 11:7.
The sea beast came up from the sea. Revelation 13:1.
The land beast came up from the land. Revelation 13:11.

In the book of Revelation, the bottomless pit is merely the abode of demons.

An Important Principle

You are overlooking one thing Zog. It seems most reasonable that we maximize the similarity between all three scenarios. Thus, we should understand that the sea beast was scheduled to be resurrected in the second scenario, but, since that didn't happen, that event is deferred to the third scenario.

Revelation 17:8
The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
