seven kings and the eighth goes into destruction

The Apostle John was given revelation that pertains to the 20th and 21st century. The account in Revelation 17 depicts the number of popes ruling the Vatican in the last century. We are told how many there will be as the fall of each pope brings us closer to the beast. As we will soon see, the successor to the current pope is the false prophet.

Revelation 17:9-11
"This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits.
They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for a little while.
The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction."

Seven hills in verse 9 is the city of Rome (see: ).
The woman in verse 9 is a church, as the scriptures are consistent to depict churches as a woman, virgin maiden, harlot, or bride.
So the woman who sits in the seven hills is a direct reference to the Roman Catholic Church. You might be asking how it is that the next passage talks about there being kings. Does the Roman Catholic Church have any "kings" or just popes?

The answer to this question is that the Vatican has kings since 1929, when the Vatican was recognized as an independent sovereign nation no longer part of Italy. From 1929 until today, each reigning pope is also the king of the Vatican state. So, lets count and name each king from 1929 until today and see how many we count.

  1. Pius XI -1922 - 1939
  2. Pius XII - 1939 - 1958
  3. John XXIII - 1958 - 1963
  4. Paul VI - 1963 - 1978
  5. John Paul I - 1978
  6. John Paul II - 1978 - 2005
  7. Benedict XVI - 2005 - ?
  8. Beast (successor to Benedict)

Verse ten refers to the current king/pope - Benedict XVI. It is revealed that he will be king for a short while. It is interesting to note that a recent controversy has many bishops calling for the resignation of Benedict XVI. You can read about it here:,1518,605714,00.html
In short, the Vatican reinstated a parishioner who denies the holocaust, and the outrage over this has many speculating that Benedict will tender his resignation.

Who will follow the current pope? We do not know who it will be, but we know what will happen when the beast takes the helm over the woman who sits in the seven hills. The timing of the shift of power to the next guy will shortly precede with the timing of going into destruction - the seven year great tribulation.

3/29/06 - From God the Father - A Letter Given to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear

Thus says the Lord, your God:

...Oh church of adulteries (catholic church), how We mourn for have been judged and shall be left utterly desolate in the Day of the Lord’s wrath. You say you speak for Me, and have Christ’s have trampled upon the grave of the Resurrected One, making His sacrifice of non-effect. Woe to those who blaspheme the Spirit! Your whoredoms are piled to Heaven. Every Law you have broken, and yet still do you embrace the sins I hate. In all you do have you crucified the Son of Salvation, again and again, denying His name by all your deeds you call mighty and true. Oh unholy church of men, mother of all fornications and lies, your destruction comes nigh. You have become Egypt....Let My people go! Stop desecrating My Sabbaths. Cease from your heresies. Hold your tongue from your blasphemies! And repent!...And I may yet have mercy on you.

Shabbat (Saturday) is the seventh day, and the Sabbath which I have ordained from the beginning.

The Holy One comes quickly and will take from you His own...He shall snatch them from your very breast. No more shall My children receive nourishment from you. No more shall they sit in your deceptions. The light is taken from are left alone, estranged by your false doctrines. Your fate lies with him(antichri_t) who is coming, who shall lead many into perdition and shall bear him a son, a man who bears the number of his name, his prophet.

You will not be alone when desolations come. You and your enemy, Ishmael (Islam), shall be destroyed along with the father that bore you both, the father of lies.

Even so, it shall be done.

The Mighty and Strong One shall come and then return in His glory...
and anyone, who calls on the name of the Lord, shall be saved.

Revelation 13 - (the second beast)

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.

The Whore/Queen that sits on the city of seven hills,ROME is also sitting upon a beast with two horns. The Pope is the beast with two horns and they are 1.The Holy See and 2.The State of Vatican City. Each of the two entities is a completely separate and sovereign entity that has a Head of State namely the POPE,thus the two horns. The Image that the beast with two horns causes the people to make is also represented by a Whore/Queen sitting upon a beast with two horns, EUROPA and the image is the EUROPEAN UNION. The image speaks from the Tower of Babel,which happens to be the seat of the E.U. Parliament,the voice of the IMAGE.
