Beast Kingdoms and Biblical Math // Revelation 17:9-11

IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION John tells us there are seven biblical world kingdoms, or beast kingdoms, that will rule on the earth throughout time with one making an end-time, repeat appearance as an eighth ruled by the Antichrist. This is where we get the idea of a revived kingdom.

// Revelation 17:9-11 NET  (This requires a mind that has wisdom.) The seven heads are seven mountains the woman sits on. They are also seven kings: [10] five have fallen; one is, and the other has not yet come, but whenever he does come, he must remain for only a brief time. [11] The beast that was, and is not, is himself an eighth king and yet is one of the seven, and is going to destruction.

// Revelation 13:3 NET  One of the beast’s heads appeared to have been killed, but the lethal wound had been healed. And the whole world followed the beast in amazement;

John says the Antichrist’s end-time kingdom is the eighth of these kingdoms, a “revived” version of one of the seven previous. How can we know which of the seven it is? With a little biblical math, we can find an answer.

// …They are also seven kings: five have fallen… [10]

The “five [that] have fallen,” meaning previous to John, are generally agreed upon as:

1. Egypt
2. Assyria
3. Babylon
4. Medo-Persia
5. Macedonia/Greece

// …one is… [10]

The “one [that] is,” meaning at the time of his writing, is Rome.

6. Rome

// …the other has not yet come… [10]

The other, the one that is future to John, had “not yet come” at the time of his writing.

7. Future to John

So, these are the seven we have to choose from:

1. Egypt
2. Assyria
3. Babylon
4. Medo-Persia
5. Macedonia/Greece
6. Rome
7. Future to John

Can we narrow it down a little more? Yes.

// The beast that was, and is not, is himself an eighth king and yet is one of the seven… [11]

John says the beast “that was, and is not” meaning not at the time of his writing, is the eighth.

Which biblical world kingdoms were previous to John, but were not at the time of his writing? The first five. This means we can eliminate six and seven from the list.

6. Rome
7. Future to John

That leaves these five for us to choose from:

1. Egypt
2. Assyria
3. Babylon
4. Medo-Persia
5. Macedonia/Greece

THE QUESTION: Which one of these five biblical world kingdoms is mentioned in the Book of Revelation by name as being destroyed at the time of the end? This is the one that is to be revived.

  1. I’m sorry to inform you that there is no revive empire not Rome not islam because all 7+1 already come.

    – 4 beasts Daniel 7
    1. Babylon
    2. Persia
    3. Greece
    4. islam

    Clues :
    1 will attack holy people (islam attacking Jew and Christian) – Dan 7:25,Rev 13:7
    2. will change law ( established sharia law)- Dan 7:25
    3 will change time (established hijria calendar) – Dan 7:25
    4. will insult God ( deny Jesus divinity)- Dan 7:25, Rev 13:6
    5 will insult God holy place (build mosque in temple Jerusalem)- Rev 13:6
    6 will spread with sword – Rev 13:10

    – Angel clearly states that 10 horns (Dan 7) are kings from 4th or kingdom that not exist yet (Rev 17) aka 7th kingdom and will rule only one hour. They were 10 leaders in early islam period (620-661). List of 10 horns name:
    1. muhamad — prophet of islam
    2 Abu bakr — 1st caliph
    3 umar — 2nd caliph
    4 utman — 3rd caliph
    5 ali — 4th caliph
    6 hasan — 5th caliph
    7 husein — imam of shia
    8 khalid ibn al walid — the greatest muslim general
    9 Abu ubaidah —- muslim general, friend of mohamad
    10 jafar bin abi talib —muslim general brother of ali 4th caliph

    >> 10 horns purpose to give power and authority to the beast (Rev 17:13). Those 10 leaders committing jihad wars to spread islam (to give power and authority). they will rule for one hour that’s 41 years (one prophetic day equal to 1000 years) started 620 (islam perfected when mohamed ascend to heaven-isra mijrad and receive allah order to pray 5 times/day) until 661 when ali,hasan,husein subdue to muawiyah (founder of umayah caliphate)

    little horn Dan 7 : muawiyah

    After mohamed died he replaced by 4 caliphs, abu bakr, umar both father in law, utman, ali both son in law of mohamed so all blood related to mohamed. problem arise when utman replaced by ali, muawiyah who’s blood related to utman but not to ali protest said no need blood related to mohamed to rule islam anyone can as long as justified and starting rebellion (first fitna – islam internal conflict) this is the origin of sunni vs shia conflict. in 660 AD muawiyah gain control most of islamic caliphate territory and jan 661 ali died months later ali sons hasan (5th caliph) and husain(2nd imam of shiah) surrender to muawiyah new caliphate sytem (non blood/sunni) last for 1260 years from 660 (muawiyah gain control of IC) until 1920 (first meeting of league of nation, fall of ottoman)

    7 heads are kings/kingdom, 5 fallen, one is, the other not come but when he does come he must remain for a little while (rev 17:10), the 8th would represent the beast belong to 7.

    5 fallen :
    1 Egypt
    2 Asiria
    3 Babylon
    4 Persia
    5 Macedonian Greece

    6 Rome -one is

    7 islamic caliphate – blood related leadership – for little while 620-661 AD
    8 islamic caliphate – non blood related/sunni – is the beast belong to 7

    sunni represent 90% of islamic population

    The beast who once, now is not and will come out of the abyss is represent king priest system. During John era this system is not exist but exist during Sumerian Akkadian empire (once was). Sargon king of Akkadia priest of Anu, later this king priest system re-appear in islam know as the caliph.
