ten out of seven (revelation 17:10-14)
This message was preached at New Testament Christian Fellowship on October 14, 2018. Out of seven, seven heads that are seven mountains upon which the woman sitteth (Rome) AS WELL AS seven kings (imperial kingdoms of world history), there are ten, ten kings (a revised Roman Empire) that will yet receive power at the same time as the beast in its puppy form. These are the same ten seen as ten toes in Nebuchadnezzar’s image (Daniel 2), the ten horns of Daniel’s fourth beast (Daniel 7), the ten horns of the dragon (Revelation 12), and the ten horns of the beast out of the sea (Revelation 13). The whore is somehow tied to the Roman Catholic Church, and she it is who ushers in the last form of imperial government. But alas, all this wickedness shall be overcome, for the Lamb is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
