Seven Heads on the Beast in Revelation 13 & 17 – Part 7
March 8, 2011
If you want to see the case I make to prove the “he” in Daniel 9:27 is not the antichrist, then read whole numbered Prophecy Updates 55 to 58 on our web site in our prophecy update archives, which are listed on the menu as “Prophecy Updates.”
Mountains are at times used to refer to great governments or kingdoms in the Bible, such as in Isaiah when it refers to Christ’s Kingdom being established as the top Kingdom among the other nations, represented as lower mountains or little hills.
The SEVEN HEADS represent seven great mountains (governments or kingdoms) that have been composite parts in the development of the final great Revelation beast kingdom of antichrist. Each kingdom had its own individual groupings of historical kings.
These seven kingdoms of mankind have historically given their mammon contributions of knowledge, culture, and scientific advancements, as they have afflicted and affected Israel since God called her out of Egypt.
The First Head in Part 1 was the Egyptian Kingdom
The Second Head in Part 2 was the Assyrian Kingdom
The Third Head in Part 3 was the Babylonian Kingdom
The Fourth Head in Part 4 was the Medo-Persian Kingdom
The Fifth Head in Part 5 was the Grecian or Macedonian Kingdom
The Sixth Head in Part 6 was the Roman Kingdom
The Seventh Head in Part 7 was the Islamic Omayyad Kingdom
Head 8 is the resurrected Islamic Head 7 Caliphate with an Antichrist Caliph
Each Head had its own series of Kings, but Head 8 will have only have One
The series of kings were counted as one king on each Head 1 through 7
But the Islamic 8th Caliphate beast head itself and its Caliph in Revelation 13 & 17 are One and, as such, are used interchangeably as the Government or Antichrist.
Revelation 17:9-13 – And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.  And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.  These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
Revelation 13:7-9 – And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
 If any man have an ear, let him hear.
Those indwelt by Christ, and those not indwelt by Christ, at this point of time in the tribulation period, are visibly divided by whether they do, or do not, worship the beast. Simply stated, the saved won’t and the lost will!
This period of time falls in the last 1260 days of the tribulation period after Satan has been cast out of heaven permanently, and while there are still believers here who have the testimony of Jesus Christ and are keeping the commandments of God. Satan makes war against them until they are caught out on the blowing of the seventh trumpet.
