When it comes to beast(s), God it seems, depending on context could also have in view the Body of Christ prior to the separation. Elect are said NOT to have worshipped the beast because eventually, in Christ, they come out of the unclean. But because they touched the unclean in tribulation, God seemed to view them also in a spiritually unclean BODY.
