In That Day
Where We Are And What To Expect
Two Symbols Reveal Major Consecutive Kingdoms That Have Had Authority Over Israel When Israel Exists
They Will Be Replaced By The Kingdom of God When Jesus Returns
Revelation 12, 13, 17, Daniel 7, & The Identity of Babylon
I am not a prophet. This website is based on identifying kingdoms and events that are in the Bible. Two symbols, the image and the beast, reveal kingdoms that have had control over Israel.
The image reveals that the last kingdom is a divided kingdom that is made up of two kingdoms: the iron-EU and clay-UN working together (Daniel 2:43). It exists now.
The beast is Satan and the heads on the beast are kingdoms (Matt. 4:8-9, Rev. 12:3, 9; 17:9-10). Satan probably got control of the kingdoms after Adam ate the forbidden fruit.
When Donald Trump was elected under the promise to make America great again, there was an uproar. Globalist had been trying to put the US under global control for years. There will be a wounding of the divided kingdom, the EU@UN, (Rev. 12:7-12, 13:5). The wounding may have already begun. After a period of wounding, Satan will then control his kingdom for 3-1/2 years. Now you know what the commotion is about.
Then Jesus will return and set up the Kingdom of God (Rev. 19:11-21, 20:1-6, Dan. 2:43-45).
Five Kingdoms Are Represented By The Image In Daniel 2
Gold Head--Babylonian, Silver Chest--Persian, Bronze Belly & Thighs--Greek, Iron Legs--Roman, Iron & Clay Feet--Divided Kingdom.
The divided kingdom is made up of two separate kingdoms working together as described in Daniel 2:43. Search EU@UN
God will crush the former kingdoms (EU & UN) and set up a kingdom that will last forever (Daniel 2:44-45).
Seven Kingdoms Are Represented By The Beast In Revelation 12, 13, 17, and Daniel 7
1- Egyptian, 2- Assyrian, 3- Babylonian, 4- Persian, 5- Greek, 6- Roman, and 7 - The Divided Kingdom. (EU@UN Phase I & II).
There are four descriptions of the same beast. Revelation 12,13, and 17 refer to the seven heads and 10 horns. Daniel 7 is only about the last kingdom with 10 horns.
Phase I of the divided kingdom: The seventh head began in1945 with the UN. The EU became a member of the UN a little later (Rev. 17:11, 13:3).
The seventh head (kingdom) will receive a wounding.
Phase II of the divided kingdom: Satan is thrown to the earth (Rev. 12:9-12).The wound will be healed. The eighth head will last for 3-1/2 years
(Rev. 11:1-3, 12:6, 13:5,
Satan is identified as the beast in Revelation 12:9 and 17:11. So the heads are obviously kingdoms that were given to him after the fall of Adam.
The Little Horn -Man of Lawlessness- Antichrist
The Little Horn Will Come Up Among 10 Horns
The little horns will come up among the 10 rotating members of the UN Security Council (the military body of the UN).
Horns represent military authorities like the large horn in Daniel 8:5-8. Alexander the Great was the large horn on the male goat in Daniel 8:21. (Dan. 7:8, 20-21, 24-25).
The Little Horn Will Subdue Three of The First Horns
There are five permanent members of the UN Security Council: the United States, Russia, China, United Kingdom, and France. These five permanent members in the Security Council have veto power. The little horn will remove three of these permanent horns (Daniel 7:8, 20, 24).
There are two beasts (kingdoms) in Revelation 13 making up the divided kingdom.
1 - The beast from the sea (UN) has 10 horns (Rev. 13:1).
This is base of the antichrist - man of lawlessness.
2 - The beast from the land (EU) has two horns (Rev. 13:11-23). The UK and France are permanent members of the UN Security Council.
Since the two members from the EU (UK and France) are shown to still to exist in Revelation 13, the United States, Russia, and China are the three horns that will be removed.
This is the base of the false profit. Babylon (Rome) is where the new monetary system will be based. Do not get the mark. Babylon will be burned.
Jesus Will Come First To Gather His Elect - The Tribes of Earth Will Mourn,
A Little Later He Will Come With The Armies of Heaven To Fight Against The Armies That Are Waiting On Him
Jesus will return with His angels and they will gather His elect (the rapture) (Matt. 24:29-31, Rev. 16:15).
Satan and the beast (antichrist) will be worshiped during the eighth kingdom, Phase II of the divided kingdom (Rev. 13:4).
When Jesus returns with the armies of heaven (second coming) the kingdom of God will begin (Rev. 19:11-21).
Satan will be cast into the bottomless pit for 1,000 years (Rev. 20:1-3).
After the 1,000 years Satan will be released for a short while before being thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone (Rev. 20:10).
The Gospel of The Kingdom Will Be Preached To All Nations And Then The End Will Come
4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come." - Matt. 24:4-14 NKJV
No God But One
4 Therefore concerning the eating of things sacrificed to idols, we know that there is no such thing as an idol in the world, and that there is no God but one.
5 For even if there are so-called gods whether in heaven or on earth, as indeed there are many gods and many lords,
6 yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him. - 1 Cor. 8:4-6 NASB (1995)
God Made The World Through His Son Jeshua, Jesus
1 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways,
2 in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world.
3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
4 having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they. - Heb. 1:1-4 NASB (1995)
Jesus Is The Word of God - All Things Came Into Being Through Him
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
4 In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.
5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. - John 1:1-5 NASB (1995)
Two Symbols: The Image And The Beast
The Bible Reveals The Last Kingdom Is Made Up of Two Kingdoms
The First Kingdom Was In Existence When Israel Became A Nation In 1948
The image of five parts begins with Babylon represented by the gold head and ends with the two-part divided kingdom, the EU-UN, represented by the iron and clay feet. The UN began in 1945.
The beast (Satan) begins with Egypt represented by the first head, and ends with the EU-UN represented by the seventh and eighth heads
All of these kingdoms are connected with Satan, the dragon (Rev. 12:3, 9; 13:1; 17:8). Satan will be thrown into the bottomless pit for 1,000 uears (Rev. 20:1-2) and then into the lake of fire (Rev. 20:10). The last secular kingdom has 10 horns, military authorities (Rev. 12:3: 13:1; 17:3, 12, Dan. 7:7, 20, 24).
The Kingdom of God will destroy and replace the last secular kingdom: the kingdom with 10 horns (Dan. 7:11) also called the divided kingdom (Dan. 2:34-35; 44-45).
Two Symbols Represent The Major Kingdoms That Had Control Over Israel
When Jesus Returns The Kingdom of God Will Fill The Earth
The Beast With Seven Heads (Kingdoms) And Ten Horns The Statue With Five Parts (Kingdoms)
Satan Is Identified As The Beast With Seven Kingdoms (Rev. 17:11, 12:9).
Revelation 17: 10-14 Daniel 2:31-45
Satan will go to perdition - punishment, lake of fire (Rev. 17:11, 20:10).
When Israel Exists One of These Kingdoms Is Always In Existence
In the two symbols above, there is only one secular kingdom after the Roman Empire and the Jewish diaspora. It is the iron and clay divided kingdom in Daniel 2:41-43 and the beast with 10 horns in Daniel 7, Revelation 12, 13, and 17.
Revelation 17:10-11 reveals that there is an eighth head out of the seventh head (kingdom).
Revelation 13:3 reveals that one of the heads receives a deadly wound that is healed.
Jesus will return and the nations will be judged according to their treatment of his brethren. Those who pass will inherit the kingdom prepared for them from the foundation of the world. Those who fail will go into everlasting punishment (Matt. 25:31-46).
The Image Reveals That The Last Kingdom Is Made Up of Two Kingdoms
Daniel 2: The Image
The Two Parts of The Feet Represent The Divided Kingdom, The EU@UN
The gold head represents Babylon, the silver chest and arms represent Persia, the bronze belly and thighs represent Greece. and the iron legs represent Rome. The Roman Empire destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD and moved Jews to foreign lands. The kingdoms when Israel did not exist as a nation are ignored.
When Israel became a nation again in 1948, the iron and clay feet represented the divided kingdom that consisted of two parts (Daniel 2:41-43). The clay part, the UN, came into existence in 1945. A little later the EC became an observer at the UN and still later the EU received an enhanced membership. This gave the EU ability to participate in treaties, etc within the UN.
A stone, representing the kingdom of God, hit the statue on its feet and destroyed the statue. Then the kingdom of God filled the earth. This happens when Jesus returns.
This symbol begins with Babylon when Babylon captured Jerusalem. Daniel told king Nebuchadnezzar that he was the head of gold. The iron
legs represented the Roman Empire. There is a break in the kingdoms listed beginning with the destruction of Jerusalem and the Jewish dispersion in 70 AD.
The last kingdom was represented by the iron and clay feet and exists now. When the stone hit the statue on its feet the statue crumbled. Then the stone, representing the kingdom of God, filled the earth.
The clay in the feet represents the UN. A kingdom where men (representatives) come together for international concerns. Clay is a symbol for man. The iron in the feet represents the EU because iron in the legs represented the Roman Empire - a European based power.
A break takes place between the iron legs and the iron and clay feet during the Jewish diaspora (70 AD - 1948). No kingdoms are recognized during this period.
Daniel Interprets The Dream For King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon
31 “You, O king, were watching; and behold, a great image! This great image,
whose splendor was excellent, stood before you; and its form was awesome.
32 This image’s head was of fine gold, its chest and arms of silver,
its belly and thighs of bronze,
33 its legs of iron,
its feet partly of iron and partly of clay.
34 You watched while a stone was cut out without hands, which struck the
image on its feet of iron and clay, and broke them in pieces. 35 Then the iron,
the clay, the bronze, the silver, and the gold were crushed together, and became
like chaff from the summer threshing floors; the wind carried them away so that
no trace of them was found. And the stone that struck the image became a great
mountain and filled the whole earth.
36 “This is the dream. Now we will tell the interpretation of it before the king.
37 You, O king, are a king of kings. For the God of heaven has given you a
kingdom, power, strength, and glory; 38 and wherever the children of men dwell,
or the beasts of the field and the birds of the heaven, He has given them into your
hand, and has made you ruler over them all—you are this head of gold.
39 But after you shall arise another kingdom inferior to yours; then another,
a third kingdom of bronze, which shall rule over all the earth.
40 And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks
in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will
break in pieces and crush all the others.
5. Divided Kingdom - EU@UN The feet are iron and clay.
41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron,
the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as
you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were
partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly
fragile. 43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the
seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.
The Kingdom of God
44 And in the days of these kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom which
shall never be destroyed; and the kingdom shall not be left to other people; it
shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand forever.
45 Inasmuch as you saw that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands,
and that it broke in pieces the iron, the bronze, the clay, the silver, and the gold
the great God has made known to the king what will come to pass after this.
The dream is certain, and its interpretation is sure.” - Dan. 2:31-45 NKJV
The Gradual Formation of The Divided Kingdom - EU@UN
1945 - The UN began.
1974 - The EC became an observer at the UN.
1993 - The EU came into being.
2009 - The EU became a single legal entity.
A Stronger Tie Between the UN And The EU
2011 - The EU observer status at the UN was updated with an enhanced membership.
There are five major bodies in the UN. All are located in New York City except the ICJ.
The UN Trusteeship Council is currently inactive.
The Beast (Satan) With Seven Heads (Kingdoms) Reveals That The Last Kingdom Has Two Phases
There Are Four Different Representations For The Beast: Revelation 12, 13, 17, and Daniel 7
The 10 Horns Are On The Last Kingdom, The Divided Kingdom, The EU@UN
1 - Revelation 12
The Great Red Dragon With Seven Heads And 10 Horns
Also Called The Devil And Satan
The 10 Horns Are The 10 Rotating Members Of The UN Security Council
A Great Red Dragon Has Seven Heads (Kingdoms) And 10 Horns (Authorities)
Satan And His Angels Are Thrown To The Earth For The Last 3-1/2 Years of The Divided Kingdom (Head)
"the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down"
A great red dragon, also called the Devil and Satan, has seven heads and 10 horns. Satan and his angels are thrown to the earth.
Then the kingdom of God comes and the power of His Christ on the earth (Rev. 12:9-10). This is also in the seventh trumpet (Rev. 11:15).
The sixth bowl of wrath is when Jesus gives a warning that He is coming (Rev. 16:15). This also goes along with Matthew 24:29-31).
The Woman, Israel
1 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;
2 and she was with child; and she cried out, being in labor and in pain to give birth.
The Red Dragon, Satan, Drew A Third of The Angels To The Earth. He Stood Before Israel To Kill Her Child, Jesus
3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems.
4 And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.
Jesus Was Caught Up To God And To His Throne. Israel Will Flee Into The Wilderness Ror 1,260 Days (3-1/2 Years)
5 And she gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron; and her child was caught up to God and to His throne.
6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
Michael And His Angels Throw Satan And His Angels Down To The Earth. The Dragon - The Serpent - The Devil - Satan
7 And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. The dragon and his angels waged war,
8 and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven.
9 And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
The Kingdom of God And The Authority of Christ Has Come To The Earth (Rev. 11:15).
10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying,
“Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, he
who accuses them before our God day and night.
They Overcame Satan By The Blood of The Lamb And The Word of Their Testimony. He Knows That He Only Has A Short Time Left
11 “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.
12 “For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has only a short time.”
When Satan Sees That He Has Been Thrown To The Earth, He Will Persecute Israel
13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child.
The Two Wings of The Great Eagle (United States?) Were Given To Israel So That She Could Fly Into The Wilderness Where She Is Nourished For 3-1/2 Years
14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
15 And the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood.
16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth.
Satan The Dragon Will Make War Against Christians
17 So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. - Rev. 12:1—17 NASB
Satan is the beast with seven heads (kingdoms) and 10 horns (kings, authorities). He is referred to as the red dragon in Revelation 12. Apparently the system of kingdoms was given to him after Adam listened to Satan and ate the forbidden fruit. Satan will be put away for 1,000 years when Jesus returns (Rev. 20:1-2). Then after being released for a short while, he will be thrown into the lake of fire (Rev. 20:10).
When Satan is thrown to the earth he persecutes Israel. When Israel is given refuge in the wilderness he then makes war with the Christians (Rev. 12:13-17 above).
2 - Revelation 13
There are two beasts (kingdoms) in Revelation 13: The Beast From The Sea and The Beast From The Land.
The two beasts In Revelation 13 represent the two powers that make up the last secular kingdom: the EU and the UN. The beast from the sea represents the UN with 10 rotating members in the Security Council. The beast from the land represents the EU with two horns, the UK and France, that are permanent members in the UN Security Council. The three other permanent members of the Security Council, Russia, China, and The United States, will be removed by the little horn (antichrist) as described in Daniel 7.
1. The Beast From The Sea Has Seven Heads And Ten Horns - The UN
The 10 Horns Are The 10 Rotating Members Of The UN Security Council
The Dragon (Satan) Stood On The Sand of The Seashore
The Man of Lawlessness (Antichrist) Is Based In This Kingdom
1 And the dragon stood on the sand of the seashore. Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names.
The Beast With Seven Heads And 10 Horns Is a Combination of The Leopard, Bear, And Lion In Daniel 7
2 And the beast which I saw was like a leopard,
and his feet were like those of a bear,
and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority.
One of The Heads (Kingdoms), The Seventh, Is Wounded And Becomes The Eighth Head When The Wound Is Healed
The Dragon (Satan) And The Beast (Antichrist) Are Worshiped
3 I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast;
4 they worshiped the dragon because he gave his authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast, and who is able to wage war with him?”
He (Beast, Satan?) Was Given A Mouth (Beast, Antichrist) Speaking Blasphemies For 42 Months (3-1/2 Years). Also See Dan. 7:8, 24-25
5 There was given to him a mouth speaking arrogant words and blasphemies, and authority to act for forty-two months was given to him.
6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemies against God, to blaspheme His name and His tabernacle, that is, those who dwell in heaven.
He, The Antichrist, Makes War With The Saints And Overcomes them. He Will Be Given Authority Over Every Nation
7 It was also given to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them, and authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation was given to him.
8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, everyone whose name has not been written from the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who has been slain.
9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear.
10 If anyone is destined for captivity, to captivity he goes; if anyone kills with the sword, with the sword he must be killed. Here is the perseverance and the faith of the saints. - Rev. 13:1-10 NASB
2. The Beast From The Land Has Two Horns - The EU
The Two Horns, UK and France, Are Two of Five Permanent Members of The UN Security Council.
The Little Horn Will Remove The Other Three Permanent Members of The Security Council (United States, Russia, & China) - See Daniel 7:8
This Kingdom Is Where The False Profit Is Based. He Is Also Mentioned In Revelation 19:20.
Europe Is Where The World Monetary System Will Be Set Up By The False Profit
Since John received Revelation on the Greek island of Patmos off the coast of the continent of Europe, the land (earth), this kingdom refers to the EU, the iron part of the feet in Daniel 2. The two horns like a lamb are probably the UK and France because they will be the two remaining permanent members of the UN Security Council after the other three are removed. It is the iron part of the toes of the feet in the two-part divided kingdom in Daniel 2.
The false profit from this kingdom works signs in the presence of the first beast (EU or antichrist) by which he deceives those who received the mark of the beast (Rev. 19:20, 13:13).
11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb and he spoke as a dragon.
12 He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. And he makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed.
The False Profit Performs Great Signs In The Presence of The Beast (Antichrist)
He Tells Those On The Earth To Make An Image of The Beast (Antichrist) To Worship The Image
13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down out of heaven to the earth in the presence of men.
14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth because of the signs which it was given him to perform in the presence of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who had the wound of the sword and has come to life.
15 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
The False Profit Causes All To Receive The Mark of The Beast For Buying And Selling - His Number Is 666
16 And he causes all, the small and the great, and the rich and the poor, and the free men and the slaves, to be given a mark on their right hand or on their forehead,
17 and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for the number is that of a man; and his number is six hundred and sixty-six. - Rev. 13:11-18 NASB
Those Who Receive The Mark of The Beast Will Be Thrown Into The Lake of Fire - Rev. 14
9 A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: “If anyone worships the beast and his image and receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, 10 he, too, will drink of the wine of God’s fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of the holy angels and of the Lamb. 11 And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name.” 12 This calls for patient endurance on the part of the saints who obey God’s commandments and remain faithful to Jesus.
13 Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.”
“Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.” - Rev. 14:9-13 NKJV (1984)
3 - Revelation 17
The Scarlet Beast Has Seven Heads And 10 Horns
The 10 Horns Are The 10 Rotating Members Of The UN Security Council
The Harlot City, Babylon, Rides The Scarlet Beast
Revelation 17 Reveals That The Divided Kingdom Has Two Phases: The7th & 8th Heads
Revelation 13 Reveals That The 7th Head (Kingdom) Will Be Healed To Become The 8th Head (Kingdom)
Peter Identifies Babylon As Rome
12 By Silvanus, our faithful brother as I consider him, I have written to you briefly, exhorting and testifying that this is the true grace of God in which you stand.
13 She who is in Babylon, elect together with you, greets you; and so does Mark my son. 14 Greet one another with a kiss of love.
Peace to you all who are in Christ Jesus. Amen. - 1 Peter 5:12-14 NKJV (1982)
Peter may have written and delivered this letter to the churches in Asia Minor with the help of Silvanus. The phrase "She who is Babylon, elect together with you" refers to the church where the letter was written - Rome. Peter was in Rome during the final years of his life. Therefore Babylon is a reference to Rome.
The scarlet beast has seven heads and 10 horns. The scarlet beast (Satan) is going to perdition (punishment - the lake of fire (Rev. 17:11, 20:10). When it says in Revelation 17:10 "Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come", the kingdoms are identified.
"Five have fallen": five kingdoms had fallen when Revelation was written,
The Roman Empire was the one that was in existence when Revelation was written. The seventh kingdom had not come,
The eighth kingdom is actually the seventh kingdom that has been healed (revived).
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. - Rev. 17:8 NKJV
11 "And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition." - Rev. 1 7:10-11 NKJV
"The beast that you saw was" may be the seventh kingdom.
The wounding unto death of the seventh kingdom may be the beast that "was and is not".
The term "yet is", may refer to the eighth kingdom that is "of the seven". "And is going to perdition" refers to Satan who is going to perdition, the lake of fire.
Satan will ascend out of the bottomless pit (Rev. 20:3, 7) and after 1,000 years he will go to perdition (Rev. 20:10).
The harlot city Mystery Babylon rides (uses, depends on) the beast. She will be burned. Babylon is a symbol because it was destroyed and is not functioning as a city. It refers to a city that once was Christian and fell into harlotry or apostasy regarding Christianity. It is the mother of harlots: it has branches in many nations. This should be easy to identify.
Babylon, The Harlot City, Rome) Rides The Beast (Satan - The EU-UN)
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. 4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. 5 And on her forehead a name was written:
BABYLON THE GREAT,
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH
Babylon - The City That Is Guilty of Shedding The Blood of The Saints
6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
7 But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
Satan Will Ascend Out of The Bottomless Pit And Go To The Lake of Fire
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.
The Seven Heads Are Seven Mountains On Which The Woman Sits
There Are Also Seven Kingdoms
9 “Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.
10 "There are also seven kings.
The Sixth Kingdom, One Is, Refers To The Roman Empire
The Seventh Kingdom (EU@UN) Exists Now - Satan Is The Eighth That Is Of The Seventh
"Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time."
11 "And the beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition." - Rev. 1 7:10-11 NKJV
The 10 Horns Give Their Power And Authority To The Beast (Antichrist)
12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.
The 10 horns And The Beast (Antichrist) Will Make War With The Lamb, Jesus, And He Will Overcome them. Read Revelation 19.
14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”
Babylon Reigns Over The Kings of The Earth
The Harlot City (Vatican City) Sits In Many Nations - The 10 Horns Will Burn Her
15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” - Rev. 17:12-18 NKJV
Revelation 13:3-5: The Deadly Wound On The Head (Kingdom) Is Healed And Is Allowed To Continue For 3-1/2 Years
They Worshiped The Dragon (Satan) Who Gave Authority To The Beast
3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast.
4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” 5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. - Rev. 13:3-5 NKJV

More About Rome And Vatican City
The Monetary System Will Be In Rome
If you have trouble believing that Rome will become a great financial center, remember that the world money system that will be set up is in "the beast from the land", the European Union. It involves the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:11-18).
Babylon Will Become A Dwelling Place For Demons And Every Foul Spirit
After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! 3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”
Come Out of Her (The Roman Catholic Church) My People - She Will Be Utterly Burned With Fire
4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7 In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 8 Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her. - Rev. 18:1-8 NKJV (1982)
Standing At A Distance,
Merchants of The Earth And Those Who Trade On The Sea Mourn The Burning of Babylon
For No One Buys Their Merchandise Anymore
God Avenged The Holy Apostles And Prophets On Her
9 “The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, 10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’
11 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. 14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance 18 and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’
19 “They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’
20 “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!” - Rev. 18:9-20 NKJV (1982)
In Her Were Found The Blood of Prophets And Saints
21 Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and threw it into the sea, saying, “Thus with violence the great city Babylon shall be thrown down, and shall not be found anymore. 22 The sound of harpists, musicians, flutists, and trumpeters shall not be heard in you anymore. No craftsman of any craft shall be found in you anymore, and the sound of a millstone shall not be heard in you anymore. 23 The light of a lamp shall not shine in you anymore, and the voice of bridegroom and bride shall not be heard in you anymore. For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived. 24 And in her was found the blood of prophets and saints, and of all who were slain on the earth.” - Rev. 18:21-24 NKJV (1982)
The World Monetary System In Babylon (Rome)
The Identity of The Harlot City Babylon
Do No Take The Mark of The Beast (Rev. 14:9-11)
The statements above will reveal her identity. Notice that she sits in many nations and is the mother of harlots. To me this is a religious entity that is in many nations but is based in one city - Vatican City in Rome. Rome was the city that sat on seven mountains in ancient literature. Therefore Babylon may be Vatican City in Rome. The Popes and The German Emperors ruled over the kings of the earth during the Holy Roman Empire. During The Inquisition many saints were killed by the Roman Catholic Church.
4 - Daniel 7
The Terrifying Beast Has 10 Horns And A Little Horn
The 10 Horns Are The 10 Rotating Members Of The UN Security Council
It Is The Last Kingdom Before Jesus Returns
The Little Horn, Antichrist, Comes Up Among 10 Horns, He Removes Three of First Horns
The Seven Heads (Kingdoms) Are Not Mentioned Here Because It Is The Last Kingdom
This Chapter Is About A Court In Which The Ancient of Days Is Seated
The Son of Man, Jesus, Is Given A Kingdom
The Lion (UK), Bear (Russia), And Leopard (Germany) Are Allowed To Continue For A While
The fourth beast, the terrifying beast (EU@UN) was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame.
It is important to note that Daniel 7 is about a court in which the Ancient of Days is seated. The four kingdoms that are judged are kingdoms that exist at the end of the age - they exist now. The first three beasts (kingdoms) are allowed to continue for a while, but the fourth beast with 10 horns is destroyed. The lion represents the United Kingdom. The bear represents Russia. The leopard represent Germany. The three will be allowed to continue for a while.
The fourth beast, the dreadful beast with 10 horns, represents the divided kingdom - the EU and UN working together. It will be destroyed when Jesus returns.
The seven heads are not mentioned here probably because the 10 horns are on the last head (kingdom).
In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream and visions of his head while on his bed. Then he wrote down the dream, telling the main facts.
2 Daniel spoke, saying, “I saw in my vision by night, and behold, the four winds of heaven were stirring up the Great Sea. 3 And four great beasts came up from the sea, each different from the other.
• First Beast: Like A Lion - United Kingdom
4 The first was like a lion, and had eagle’s wings. I watched till its wings were plucked off; and it was lifted up from the earth and made to stand on two feet like a man, and a man’s heart was given to it.
• Second Beast: Like A Bear - Russia
“And suddenly another beast, a second, like a bear. It was raised up on one side, and had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. And they said thus to it: ‘Arise, devour much flesh!’
• Third Beast: Like A Leopard - Germany
6 “After this I looked, and there was another, like a leopard, which had on its back four wings of a bird. The beast also had four heads, and dominion was given to it.
• The Fourth Beast (Kingdom) Has 10 Horns And Is Terrifying And Dreadful
A Little Horn Comes Up Among The 10 horns (Rotating Horns) And Removes Three of The First Horns (The Permanent Horns)
7 “After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.
A Little Horn (Antichrist) Comes Up Among The 10 Horns (Rotating Members) Speaking Pompous Words
8 I was considering the horns, and there was another horn, a little one, coming up among them, before whom three of the first horns were plucked out by the roots. And there, in this horn, were eyes like the eyes of a man, and a mouth speaking pompous words. - Dan. 7:1-8 NKJV
The Ancient of Days Was Seated, The Court Was Seated, And The Books Were Opened
9 “I watched till thrones were put in place, and the Ancient of Days was seated; His garment was white as snow, and the hair of His head was like pure wool. His throne was a fiery flame, its wheels a burning fire;
10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before Him. A thousand thousands ministered to Him; Ten thousand times ten thousand stood before Him. The court was seated, and the books were opened. - Dan. 7:9-10 NKJV
The Son of Man, Jesus, Was Given Dominion, Glory, And A Kingdom.
11 “I watched then because of the sound of the pompous words which the horn was speaking; I watched till the beast was slain, and its body destroyed and given to the burning flame. 12 As for the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away, yet their lives were prolonged for a season and a time.
13 “I was watching in the night visions, and behold, One like the Son of Man, coming with the clouds of heaven! He came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought Him near before Him.
14 Then to Him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom the one which shall not be destroyed. - Dan. 7:11-14 NKJV
15 “I, Daniel, was grieved in my spirit within my body, and the visions of my head troubled me. 16 I came near to one of those who stood by, and asked him the truth of all this. So he told me and made known to me the interpretation of these things: 17 ‘Those great beasts, which are four, are four kings which arise out of the earth. 18 But the saints of the Most High shall receive the kingdom, and possess the kingdom forever, even forever and ever.’
19 “Then I wished to know the truth about the fourth beast, which was different from all the others, exceedingly dreadful, with its teeth of iron and its nails of bronze, which devoured, broke in pieces, and trampled the residue with its feet; 20 and the ten horns that were on its head, and the other horn which came up, before which three fell, namely, that horn which had eyes and a mouth which spoke pompous words, whose appearance was greater than his fellows.
21 “I was watching; and the same horn was making war against the saints, and prevailing against them, 22 until the Ancient of Days came, and a judgment was made in favor of the saints of the Most High, and the time came for the saints to possess the kingdom.
23 “Thus he said: ‘The fourth beast shall be a fourth kingdom on earth, which shall be different from all other kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, trample it and break it in pieces.
A Little Horns Comes Up Among The Ten Horns Speaking Pompous Words Against The Most High
He Will Be Over The Saints For 3-1/2 Years
24 The ten horns are ten kings who shall arise from this kingdom. And another shall rise after them; He shall be different from the first ones, and shall subdue three kings.
25 He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, shall persecute the saints of the Most High, and shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time.
The Court Is Seated And Judgments Are Pronounced
26 ‘But the court shall be seated, and they shall take away his dominion, to consume and destroy it forever.
27 Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.’ - Dan. 7:15-27 NKJV
First beast like a lion - United Kingdom - Dan. 7:4
Stood up like a man - Magna Carta
Eagle wings torn off - United States gained independence
Second beast like a bear - Russia - Dan. 7:5
1 Crimea ?
Third beast like a leopard - Germany - Dan. 7:6
This Beast (Germany) Has Four Bird Wings:
When France attacked Prussia in 1870, four South German states joined with Prussian forces of the North German Confederation, and the German Empire was formed in 1871.

The UN Security Council
The Military And Most Powerful Body In The UN
The 10 Rotating Members (Horns) of The Security Council
There are ten members that stay for a period of two years. There are two groups of five.
One group of five changes one year and the next year the alternate group changes.
A little horn comes up among the 10. Dan. 7:7-8, 19, 24
10 + 1
The ten will give their power and authority to the beast (antichrist, Satan). Rev. 17:13
The 5 Permanent Members (Horns) of The Security Council
These are the two members from the European Union. They are the two horns on the beast from the land, the European Union (Rev. 13:11).
The Man of Lawlessness (Little Horn) Probably Comes Up In The UN Security Council
The kingdom that existed in 1948 when Israel became a nation again was the UN. The EU became an observer came later. There was no caliphate at that time.
The little horn that comes up among the ten horns in Daniel 7 will persecute the saints for 3-1/2 years (Dan. 7:25, Rev. 13:5-7). The king (little horn, man of lawlessness, antichrist) in Daniel 11 will magnify himself above all gods, but he will honor a god of fortresses (Allah) - a god his fathers did not know. He will act against the strongest fortresses with this god. The beast In Revelation 19, the man of lawlessness, will be thrown into the lake of fire (Rev. 19:20).
The UN Security Council Is made up of five permanent members: United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia, and China. It also consists of 10 rotating members.
The man of lawlessness (antichrist) will probably come up among the 10 rotating members, Two of the five permanent members will have dropped out for some reason and the antichrist (little horn) will remove the three remaining permanent members (Dan. 7:8, 19-20, 24-25).
The Little Horn Will Come Up Among 10 Horns
The little horn will come up among 10 horns (rotating members of the UN Security Council).
He will remove three of the first horns (permanent members of the UN Security Council).
7 “After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.
8 “While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth that spoke boastfully. - Dan. 7:7-8 NIV (1984)
These verses reveal that the little horn (antichrist) will come up among 10 horns (authorities). He will remove three of the first horns (not the 10). This may refer to the 10 rotating members of the UN Security Council, the military and the most powerful body in the UN. There are five permanent members of the Security Council: United states, France, United Kingdom, Russia, and China. France and the UK may be removed if the EU becomes a political union with full membership in the UN. This would leave three permanent members of the UN Security Council. These may be the three that are pulled out by the little horn.
A King (Horn) Will Come Up Among 10 Kings - He Will Subdue Three Kings (United States, Russia, and China)
He Will Be Over The Saints For 3-1/2 Years
His Power Will Be Destroyed Forever
23 “He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth. It will be different from all the other kingdoms and will devour the whole earth, trampling it down and crushing it. 24 The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings. 25 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time.
26 “ ‘But the court will sit, and his power will be taken away and completely destroyed forever. 27 Then the sovereignty, power and greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven will be handed over to the saints, the people of the Most High. His kingdom will be an everlasting kingdom, and all rulers will worship and obey him.’
28 “This is the end of the matter. I, Daniel, was deeply troubled by my thoughts, and my face turned pale, but I kept the matter to myself.” - Daniel 7:23-28 NIV (1984)
The Antichrist May Be From Syria
Daniel 8 - In The Latter of Their Kingdom (the Greek Empire) A King Shall Arise
He will cause deceit to prosper and will even arise against the Prince of princes
but he shall be broken without human hands.
20 The ram which you saw, having the two horns—they are the kings of Media and Persia. 21 And the male goat is the kingdom of Greece. The large horn that is between its eyes is the first king. 22 As for the broken horn and the four that stood up in its place, four kingdoms shall arise out of that nation, but not with its power.
23 “And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors have reached their fullness, a king shall arise, having fierce features, who understands sinister schemes. 24 His power shall be mighty, but not by his own power; he shall destroy fearfully, and shall prosper and thrive; he shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people.
25 “Through his cunning he shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule; and he shall exalt himself in his heart. He shall destroy many in their prosperity. He shall even rise against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without human means. - Dan. 8:20-25 NKJV
In the latter time a king shall arise out of one of the four divisions of the Greek Empire. He will destroy the mighty and the holy people. He shall rise against the Prince of princes; but he will be broken without human means. Syria was one of the four divisions of the Greek Empire after Alexander the Great died.
The People of The Prince Who Is To Come Destroyed Jerusalem In 70 AD
Part of the Army That Destroyed Jerusalem Was From Syria
The Prince To Come
He will confirm a seven year covenant involving Jerusalem and the Jewish people.
In the middle of the covenant he will set up the abomination of desolation in the temple.
26 “And after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off, but not for Himself; and the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end of it shall be with a flood, and till the end of the war desolations are determined.
27 Then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week; but in the middle of the week he shall bring an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall be one who makes desolate, even until the consummation, which is determined, Is poured out on the desolate.” - Dan. 9:26-27 NKJV
The "prince who is to come" will confirm a covenant with many for seven years, but in the middle of the seven years he will put a stop to sacrifices and offering. On a wing of the temple he will set the abomination that causes desolation until the end that is pured out on him. The people (the army came out of ) of the prince to come (antichrist) will destroy the city (Jerusalem) and the sanctuary.
Vespasian was sent to control the rebellion in the east. His army was based in Syria. When he became emperor his son Titus was sent to put down the rebellion in Jerusalem and Jerusalem was destroyed in 70 AD.
The King Who Exalts Himself Above All Gods
He will honor a god of fortresses (Allah) - a god his fathers did not know.
He will attack the strongest fortresses (a military stronghold) with the help of a foreign god. He is in military operations.
36 “The king will do as he pleases. He will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will say unheard-of things against the God of gods. He will be successful until the time of wrath is completed, for what has been determined must take place. 37 He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. 38 Instead of them, he will honor a god of fortresses; a god unknown to his fathers he will honor with gold and silver, with precious stones and costly gifts. 39 He will attack the mightiest fortresses with the help of a foreign god and will greatly honor those who acknowledge him. He will make them rulers over many people and will distribute the land at a price.
40 “At the time of the end the king of the South will engage him in battle, and the king of the North will storm out against him with chariots and cavalry and a great fleet of ships. He will invade many countries and sweep through them like a flood. 41 He will also invade the Beautiful Land. Many countries will fall, but Edom, Moab and the leaders of Ammon will be delivered from his hand. 42 He will extend his power over many countries; Egypt will not escape. 43 He will gain control of the treasures of gold and silver and all the riches of Egypt, with the Libyans and Nubians in submission. 44 But reports from the east and the north will alarm him, and he will set out in a great rage to destroy and annihilate many. 45 He will pitch his royal tents between the seas at the beautiful holy mountain. Yet he will come to his end, and no one will help him. - Dan. 11:36-45 NIV
The Antichrist Denies The Father And The Son
18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
22 Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. 23 Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also. - 1 John 2:18-23 NKJV
Every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.
4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. 6 We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error. - 1 John 4:1-6 NKJV
Beware of deceivers.
7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8 Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward.
9 Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; 11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds. - 2 John 7-11 NKJV
The verses in first and second John define antichrist and the antichrist spirit.
The Day of The Lord Will Not Come Until The Man of Lawlessness Is Revealed
He sits in the temple of God showing himself to be God.
Concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our being gathered to him, we ask you, brothers, 2 not to become easily unsettled or alarmed by some prophecy, report or letter supposed to have come from us, saying that the day of the Lord has already come. 3 Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. 4 He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.
5 Don’t you remember that when I was with you I used to tell you these things? 6 And now you know what is holding him back, so that he may be revealed at the proper time. 7 For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way. 8 And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming. 9 The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders, 10 and in every sort of evil that deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. 11 For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie 12 and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness. - 2 Thess. 2:1-12 NIV
Note that the day of the Lord (a day of wrath) will not come until the lawless one (antichrist) is revealed. This day apparently is the great tribulation described in Matthew 24:15-24. The great tribulation takes place when you see the abomination standing in the holy place.
The abomination take place in the middle of a seven year Jerusalem covenant (Dan. 9:24-27).
The Seventh Trumpet
15 Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” - Rev. 11:15 NKJV
When The Dragon (Satan) Saw That He Had Been Thrown To The Earth, He Persecuted The Woman (Israel)
She Is Given Two Wings of A Great Eagle (United States) To Fly Into The Wilderness For 3-1/2 Years
13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. 15 So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. - Rev. 12:7-17 NKJV (1982)
Apparently the United States will provide safety for Israel by providing flight into the wilderness for 3-1/2 years, The United States will also lose their permanent membership in the UN Security Council along with Russia and China. See Dan. 7:8, 20, 24
The Beast - Mouth
The antichrist is from the beast rising up out of the sea (United Nations).
The mouth (antichrist) speaks blasphemies against God, he overcomes the saints, and has authority over every nation
Then I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority. 3 And I saw one of his heads as if it had been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. And all the world marveled and followed the beast. 4 So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?”
5 And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months. 6 Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. 7 It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. 8 All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. - Rev. 13:1-8 NKJV
Remember that in Revelation 17 it says that the beast has seven heads - five have fallen, one is, and one is to come. When Revelation was written was the Roman Empire was the beast that is and the sixth kingdom (head). The sixth kingdom (head) will be wounded and when it is healed it becomes the eighth kingdom
The beast from the sea was given a mouth speaking blasphemies. The word 'beast' refers to the king and kingdom both here. The mouth is the antichrist. He was granted to make war with the saints and to overcome them. He was also given authority over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All those whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb worshiped him.
The false profit is from the beast coming out of the earth (European Union).
11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth—by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. 16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666. - Rev. 13:11-18 NKJV
The beast coming out of the earth refers to the false profit and the kingdom that he is from (EU). He causes those on the earth to make an image to the beast (antichrist) and he caused the image to have breath that the image could speak. He also caused those who would not worship the image to be killed. He causes all to receive a mark on their right hand or forehead for buying and selling.
The Beast (Antichrist)
The 10 horns give their power and authority to the beast (antichrist).
11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. 14 These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”
15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” - Rev. 17:11-18 NKJV
The way I see it is the term "beast" refers both to Satan, who is going to perdition; the antichrist, who the horns give their power to; and also to the seventh and eighth kingdoms.
The Beast And False Profit Are Thrown Into The Lake of Fire
19 And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. 20 Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. 21 And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh. - Rev. 19:19-21 NKJV
The beast and false profit are thrown into the lake of fire when Jesus returns. Note that the armies that are gathered to make war with Jesus are killed and the the birds are filled with their flesh.
Satan Is Thrown Into The Bottomless Pit
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. 2 He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 3 and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. - Rev. 20:1-3 NKJV
The verses above reveal that when Satan and his angels are thrown to the earth there will be 3-1/2 years until the kingdom of God is on the earth.
The wounding of the seventh head (EU-UN) on the beast will be healed and become the eighth head (EU-UN) on the beast. It will last for 3-1/2 years. The mouth may be the antichrist.
