The seven heads:

seven mountain kingdoms


 17:9  And     

[1] here [is] the mind which hath wisdom.

[2] The seven heads

[a.] are seven mountains [kingdoms],

[11.] on which the woman sitteth.


The seven kings:

the demonic rulers of the darkness that ride the beast


 17:10  And there are seven kings [kingdoms with kings]:

            [1] five are fallen [Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia and Greece], and

            [2] one is [Rome (in John’s day)], [and] the

            [3] other is not yet come; and

            [4] when he [revised Rome (vs. 12)] cometh,

[a.] he must continue a short space [the first 3 ½ years of the Antichrist Covenant week of years, while the Antichrist is coming to power. NOTE: the revised Roman Empire (vs. 12) doesn't come into existence until this 7th king is crowned.].


Revived Greece:

the 8th and final kingdom to oppress Israel


 17:11 And the beast

            [1] that was, and

            [2] is not, even

            [3] he is the eighth [the eighth mountain kingdom (revived Greece); the prince of Grecia is the demonic force that will control the Antichrist; it will be Satan’s last Gentile kingdom to rule Israel before Jesus establishes His millennial reign over the earth (c/p. Rev. 11:1-2);see How To Quickly Locate the Antichrist in Scripture; see also Endnote #9, The Chronological Revelation], and

            [4] [he] is of the seven [the Antichrist will rise up among the kings of the 10-nation revised Roman Empire (vs. 12)], and  

            [5] goeth into perdition [the lake of fire (Rev. 19:20)].


The 10 horns (on the 7th head)

[the revised Roman Empire: the 7th world kingdom]


 17:12  And the ten horns [Dan. 7:7; Dan. 7:8; Dan. 7:20; Dan. 7:24; Rev. 13:1; Rev. 17:3; Rev. 17:7; Rev. 17:12-17] which thou sawest 

[1] are ten kings [the demonic rulers of 10 kingdoms, each having a king; c/p. the Revised Roman Empire; Dan. 7:8; Dan. 7:19-20; Dan. 7: 23-24; Rev. 12:3; Rev. 13:1; Rev. 17:3; Rev. 17:12-17], which

[a.] have received no kingdom as yet [the European Economic Union is only a shadow of what is to come]; but

[b.] receive power as kings

[11.] one hour with the beast [their power comes upon them suddenly…to agree to destroy religious Babylon (Rev. 17:16-17)].


The 10 kings submit to the Antichrist's rule

[at or before midweek]


17:13  These

            [1] have one mind, and

            [2] shall give their power (Rev. 17:16-17) and

            [3] [shall give their] strength

[a.] unto the beast.               


The Kingdom of Heaven:

the 9th and final world kingdom


17:14  These [the 10 kings] shall

            [4] make war with the Lamb, and                                                   

                        [a.] the Lamb shall overcome them:

for he is

                                    [11.] Lord of lords, and

                                    [12.] King of kings: and

                                    [13.] they that are with him [His Church (Rev. 19:14)] [are]  

                                                [aa.] called, and

                                                [ab.] chosen, and

                                                [ac.] faithful.

The waters


 17:15  And he saith unto me,

[1] The waters (Rev. 17:1) which thou sawest,

[a.] where the whore sitteth [world religion sits on people],     

[11.] are peoples,

                                    [12.] and multitudes,

                                    [13.] and nations,

                                    [14.] and tongues.


The ten horns destroy mystery (religious) Babylon


 17:16  And the ten horns (Rev. 17:3; Rev. 17:12) which thou sawest

[1] upon the beast, these

                        [a.] shall hate the whore, and

                        [b.] shall make her desolate and                                     

                        [c.] [shall make her] naked, and

                        [d.] shall eat her flesh, and

                        [e.] [shall] burn her with fire.

 17:17  For God hath put in their hearts

            [1] to fulfil his will, and

            [2] to agree, and

            [3] [to] give their kingdom

[a.] unto the beast,

[11.] until the words of God shall be fulfilled.


[This 10-nation revised Roman confederacy by <<mid week>> will utterly destroy religious Babylon—represented by the woman—which is the great city which exercises ecumenical dominion over the kings of the earth (Rev. 17:18). The Antichrist cannot come to power while this world religious system remains in place. It is thus judged by God for its sins of the past, and removed from the earth. See The Mystery of Mystery Babylon Revealed.]
