world powers 10. The eighth kingdom, the 10 kings

In general:

Power in politics is the influence that a person or organization has to other persons or organizations. Power over others’ means that the ruler may instruct or compel them, to carry out his wishes. (Source Wikipedia)

One aspect to gain power is through knowledge. Knowledge is power or in other words, power is knowledge inequality. To become a world power or to stay a world power, knowledge has always been indispensable in the past. This knowledge includes not only the technological knowledge to give the economy, science and the military to a lead, but also includes information on other nations for a political strategy to be run.

Increase in Injustice:

The wild beast with two horns with the number of a man (Rev. 13:18), the false prophet is also called the man of sin (2Thess.2: 3), which will come when an obstacle is removed. This restriction is lifted when Christians en masse apostates from the faith in Christ and Christian values. This departure is an important marker in human history. This period is immediately followed by the arrival of the man of sin.

NKJV (2 Thessalonians 2: 3-6) 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, 4 who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. 5 Do you not remember that when I was still with you I told you these things? 6 And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his own time.

To understand how this new ‘godless’ world development will come, we first have to view the properties of Christians, because these properties will be the opposite of the properties of the apostate godless world:

No greed, Jesus speaks about this in Luke 12:15; Love your neighbor, Jesus gives the command in Matthew 7:19; Justice as a base to inherit the Kingdom in Luke 16:14; Have no sense of superiority as explained in Matthew 23:

NKJV (Luke 12: 15) 15 And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.”

NKJV (Matthew 19:19) 19 …’You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’

NKJV (Luke 16:14-15) 14 Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him. 15 And He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God.

NKJV (Matthew 23: 2-7,29,33) 2 saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat. 3 Therefore whatever they tell you to observe, that observe and do, but do not do according to their works; for they say, and do not do. 4 For they bind heavy burdens, hard to bear, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers 5 But all their works they do to be seen by men. They make their phylacteries broad and enlarge the borders of their garments. 6 They love the best places at feasts, the best seats in the synagogues, 7 greetings in the marketplaces, and to be called by men, ‘Rabbi, Rabbi.’… 29 Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous… 33 Serpents, brood of vipers! How can you escape the condemnation of hell?

The mentioned wicked world will have features, that imply the opposite. Instead of showing Christian values, there will be a period of critical times:

NKJV (2 Timothy 3: 1-4) 1 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God,

NKJV (1 Thessalonians 5: 2-3) 2 For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. 3 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.

Based on credits and a financial system, the scarlet beast with seven heads and 10 horns will reign as the 8th kingdom.

This eighth kingdom, the financial power or the 10 uncrowned kings, determines the financial rules and has therefore the “political power” in its grip.

world powers 9. The woman and the scarlet colored wild beast

NKJV (Revelation 17:3-5) 3…..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: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH..

Who is this woman? According to Rev. 18:9 , “the kings of the earth”  are mourning after the destruction of the whore. It is because of this fornication with the kings not logical that she is a political power.

NKJV (Rev. 18:9) 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,

As the merchants of the empire become rich of her, it is not logical that she portrays the business world.

NKJV (Rev. 18:15) 15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,

However, we can read that she practices magic and sorcery:

NKJV (Rev. 18:23) 23….for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived.

We can also read that this woman has blood debt to the saints and martyrs of Jesus.

NKJV (Rev. 17:6) 6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus….

The woman has a name on her forehead, Babylon the Great, the mother of the prostitutes and of the abominations of the earth. Babylon was a city of sin with several temples dedicated to many forms of idolatry. This gruesome idolatry has subsequently spread throughout the world after the confusion.

NKJV (Jeremiah 50:2) 2 “Declare among the nations, Proclaim, and set up a standard; Proclaim–do not conceal it– Say, ‘Babylon is taken, Bel is shamed. Merodach is broken in pieces; Her idols are humiliated, Her images are broken in pieces.’

NKJV (Daniel 3:12) 12 There are certain Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon: Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego; these men, O king, have not paid due regard to you. They do not serve your gods or worship the gold image which you have set up.”

This makes it clear that the woman is the mother of the prostitutes, a picture of the global fornication by the adulterous relationship in relation to the Creator. Or the (financial) idolatry in all its forms. See for support the following Scriptures:

NKJV (Ezekiel 6:9) 9 Then those of you who escape will remember Me among the nations where they are carried captive, because I was crushed by their adulterous heart which has departed from Me, and by their eyes which play the harlot after their idols;…

NKJV (Jeremiah 51: 12,13) 12 Set up the standard on the walls of Babylon; Make the guard strong, Set up the watchmen, Prepare the ambushes. For the Lord has both devised and done What He spoke against the inhabitants of Babylon. 13 O you who dwell by many waters, Abundant in treasures, Your end has come, The measure of your covetousness.

This idolatry in all its forms has as main base Satan and his demons, or as in Ephesians 6 is written, “spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places”.

NKJV (Ephesians 6:11-12) 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

This idolatry will also be sown in the Christian communities:

NKJV (Revelation 2:20) 20 Nevertheless I have a few things against you, because you allow that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, to teach and seduce My servants to commit sexual immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.

The scarlet colored wild beast that carries the woman:

A new beast on stage, also the last.    “The wild beast was, but is not” means that it stands for something, but is not the same as what was.

NKJV (Revelation 17: 7,8) 7…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. 8 The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition….

NKJV (Revelation 17:11,12) 11 And 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.

Because we are talking here, as with the previous wild beasts, again about a beast with seven heads and ten horns, this again concerns powers. It is not a power of a kingdom as before (it was, but is not), but it looks like such a kingdom.

It is noteworthy that there is no mention of crowns as a public identification of the kings as with the previous wild beast. It is also not known as a religious form of power, because the woman as a symbol of idolatry is carried on the back. Then remains a financial power. This scarlet-colored wild beast is the financial power. This scarlet-colored wild beast carries the woman, the idolatry in all its forms, on his back, which means that this woman is supported by the financial system.

world powers 8. The wild beast with two horns

The wild beast with two horns, the false prophet:

Not everyone wants to just give up sovereignty and culture and it is obvious that much opposition will come to a new world order. Therefore, Satan brings heavy artillery.

A false prophet who will perform powerful signs. This false prophet will convince people that a new world order is necessary, even the elect will be able to deceive.

NKJV (Revelation 13: 12,13) ​​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.

NKJV (Matthew 24:23-25) 23 Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. 25 See, I have told you beforehand.Not only the elect will be deceived, the other earthlings will also be misled. .

NKJV (Revelation 13:14) 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,….

The number of the beast is the number of a man, six hundred sixty-six:

NKJV (Revelation 13:18) 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 second wild beast, the false prophet, has the number 666, the number of a man. In the Scriptures, this number appears again in 1Kings 10:14.

NKJV (1 Kings 10:14) 14 The weight of gold that came to Solomon yearly was six hundred and sixty-six talents of gold,

Solomon had a great financial wealth in his kingdom, he received 666 talents of gold per year. If we make a direct comparison with Solomon, the man represented by the number 666 is a powerful person in his time – like Solomon – with major interests in finance.

We know that “the false prophet” will do powerful signs and is the initiator of the “image” of the beast.

NKJV (Revelation 13: 15) 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.

The false prophet:

Occurs as a messiah (Rev 13:11)
Will do powerful signs (Rev 13: 13)
Is the initiator of the NWO (Rev 13:14)
Is a powerful person as Solomon (1Kings 10:14,15)
Is worshiped as God (2Tess 2:3-6) (Daniel 11:38)
Being showered with richness, see Signs 1. (Daniel 11:38)

With this comparison the false prophet is not yet precisely identified. The number 666 can therefore get a more detailed interpretation later.
