The Ten Horns of The Harlot That Rides The Beast

 Date 9/3/2011 and revised 4/5/2017

    I'm going to give the chapter and verse concerning this study first and its current relation in modern day history.  This could very well be the turning point of what is to come.

Revelation Chapter 17 : 7 - 18

7    And the angel said unto me, "Wherefore didst thou marvel?  I will tell thee the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carrieth here which hath the seven heads and ten horns.
8    The beast that thou sawest was and is not and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit and go into perdition; and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world when they behold the beast that was and is not and yet is.
9    And here is the mind which hath wisdom.  The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth.
10  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.
11  And the beast that was and is not; even he is the eighth and is of the seven and goeth into perdition.
12  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.
13  These have one mind and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
14  These shall make war with the Lamb and the Lamb shall overcome them for he is Lord of lords and King of kings; and they that are with him are called and chosen and faithful."
15  And he saith unto me, "The waters which thou sawest where the whore sitteth are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues.
16  And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore and shall make here desolate and naked and shall eat her flesh and burn her with fire.
17  For God hath put in their hearts to fulfill his will and to agree and give their kingdom unto the beast until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
18  And the woman which thou sawest is that great city which reigneth over the kings of the earth."

     Let's break this down.

     The main characters within this passage are the harlot, the beast and the ten horns.

     From the prior studies, if one has read them, one should recall that I stated that the harlot and the beast both happen to be the Vatican / Vatican City / Rome with its soon coming eighth pope / king whom will be known as "Mr. Beast" and that the ten horns happens to be the Western European Union which is known as the Military Alliance which was formed and established in 1954 and it being separate from the European Union Known as the European Commission.  Rome / The Vatican / Vatican City is an "observer" state within the United Nations and an "associate member" of the Western European Union as well as Italy being a member of both of these two entities as well as being a member of the United Nations.

     I've also stated within the prior studies that the Pope is seated up front and next to the delegates within the United Nations facing all the nations that are members within the UN which just so happens to be the world.  The soon coming "Mr. Beast" will be in this seat shortly.  This information coincides with verse 15 written above.

     Now let's take a closer look at the ten horns which I stated is the Western European Union (military alliance) in reference to verses 12, 13, 14, 16 and 17.

     These ten horns shall give their power and strength unto the beast.  Surprise.  They just had done it and then did a sneaky move, a merger. 

     The Western European Union and the European Union have just officially merged as of June of 2011 and Turkey is looking to become a member of the European Union as of 2005.  The Western European Union now officially doesn't exist.  Instead of four divisions there are now only three divisions for "Mr. Beast" aka "Mr. 666" to be involved in now that the Military Alliance (WEU) has merged with the European Commission (EU).  They are the European Union, The United Nations, and Vatican City, Rome.  Check out the study of Satan's Throne and the Gog / Magog war concerning Turkey and remember, these same ten horns will destroy the harlot after the one hour coaltion.  The UK officially started withdrawal from the European Union March 29, 2017 known as Brexit.

Fulfilled Prophecy :  The study of Nebs Dream Part III could very well correlate here with this study.

Western Union Defense Organization located in the European Union link :

Main article : Western Union Defense Organization :  Transfers to the European Union

     Originally, under the Amsterdam Treaty, the WEU (Western European Union) was given an integral role in giving the EU (European Union) an independent defense capability, playing a major role in the Petersberg tasks; however that situation is changing. On 13 November 2000, WEU Ministers met in Marseille and agreed to begin transferring the organization's capabilities and functions to the European Union, under its developing Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) and Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP).

     For example, on 1 January 2002, the WEU's Security Studies Institute and the Satellite Centre were transferred to the EU and became the European Union Institute for Security Studies and the European Union Satellite Centre. Notably, the role given to the WEU in the Amsterdam Treaty, was removed by the Nice Treaty. The European Constitution was to have given the role of collective defense to NATO.  The Treaty of Lisbon has provisions for cooperation between the EU and both NATO (including the Berlin Plus agreement) and the WEU.  However the defense commitment, of Article 4 of the Brussels Treaty, has not been subsumed.  Article 42(7) of the Treaty of the European Union, as amended by the Treaty of Lisbon, could be viewed as incorporating that defense commitment into the EU framework.

A summary :  some of the moves towards a merger of the Western European Union into the European Union :

     On 20 November 1999, Javier Solana, who is the High Representative for the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) of the EU, was also appointed Secretary-General of the WEU. His being head of both organizations permits him to oversee the ongoing transfer of functions from the WEU to the EU.
     The Petersberg tasks, declared by the WEU in 1992, were incorporated in 1997 into the Treaty of Amsterdam of the EU, forming the basis of the Common Security and Defense Policy which frames a common policy to deal with humanitarian and rescue, peacekeeping and tasks of combat forces in crisis management, including peacemaking.
     The European Union Institute for Security Studies (EUISS) and European Union Satellite Centre (EUSC), both established to function under the EU's CFSP pillar, are replacements to the Western European Union Institute for Security Studies and the Western Union Satellite Centre which had been established to function in connection to the WEU.
     With the transfer of responsibilities, the WEU's Parliamentary assembly was urged to dissolve itself, as it had a mandate to supervise WEU politics, not the EU's CSDP politics. But the Assembly saw itself as playing an important role, particularly with greater right of scrutiny, membership, experience and expertise in defense policy. Therefore, it renamed itself the "Interim European Security and Defense Assembly" and urged the European Convention to include it as a second chamber within the EU's institutional framework. Hence it argued it could effectively scrutinize the CSDP, help improve EU-NATO relations and be more suited, being composed of national parliamentarians, to the intergovernmental style of the CSDP.

     However with the European Constitution aiming to streamline and simplify the EU's foreign policy, for example combining the two main foreign policy posts, it was not seen as wise to then create a separate double legislature for the CFSP, instead, the European Parliament was granted greater scrutiny over foreign policy.

Abolition of the Western European Union :

     In 2009, the Treaty of Lisbon took over the WEU's mutual defense clause.  There was much discussion about what to do with the WEU following the introduction of Lisbon, including plans to scrap it.  On 30 March 2010 in a Written Ministerial Statement UK's Foreign Office Minister Chris Bryant gave notice that the UK intended to withdraw from the Western European Union within a year.  On 31 March 2010 the German Foreign Affairs Ministry announced Germany's intention to withdraw from the Modified Brussels Treaty.  During the Spanish Presidency of the WEU, on behalf of the 10 Member States of the Modified Brussels Treaty announced the collective decision to withdraw from the Treaty and to close the WEU organization by June 2011.  On 30 June 2011 the WEU ceased officially to exist.

     Concerning the 1 hour coalition of The Beast and the 10 horns please review Rise of the Eighth Head and World War Three.

     We also have this beast rising up out of the bottomless pit.  Obviously this beast had died and will be resurrected (the bottomless pit being the grave for it is never full).  It will then destroy and then be destroyed again once and for all, hence the definition of perdition which means destruction and destroying. 
     This beast that went into the bottomless pit is known as the Sea Beast or old the Roman Empire.  Hence, what will be is a revived Roman Empire that will finally be destroyed along with the Harlot (Vatican City, Rome) and the false prophet (Mecca, Saudi Arabia).  Currently the EU which got its start with the WEU through the Treaty of Brussels with the inclusion of Vatican City, Rome fits the description of the Revived Roman Empire which is based off of the old Roman Empire for it almost entirely consists of all the territories that the old Roman Empire consisted of with the inclusion of the papal states that arose out of it.  The harlot will be destroyed first by The Ten Horns of The Beast as stated in Chapter 17, then The Beast will kill the two witnesses after their testimony of 1230 days (equaling 3 years and 5 months according to the 360 day calendar cycle) within Chapter 11 before the destruction of The Beast Empire by The Lamb in Chapter 17.

     This leads to the consideration of the outer court and the holy city that is given to the Gentiles for 42 months that they tread underfoot mentioned in Chapter 11 which is key into revealing when The Beast that the Harlot rides will arise.

     If we go back and look at the Sea Beast mentioned in Chapter 13 of Revelation, what is stated is that it continues for forty-two months with the use of the 364 day calendar.  At the same time the papal states had arose within the Sea Beast which later becomes the Earth Beast.  The forty-two months also applies to the papal states but with the use of the 360 day calendar for we have two separate entities we are dealing with.  Please refer to the Sea and Earth beast studies for historical content. 

     If we go back to Chapter 13 concerning the Sea Beast, it continues for 42 months.  I mentioned that this beast was preggers and that the papal states (known as The Earth Beast) had rose up within.  Following is the historical fact :

     Papal states and rise of the Papal Empire 754 AD to 1870 AD :  It consisted of a group of territories in central Italy ruled by the popes from 754 to 1870 AD.  They were originally given to the papacy by Pepin the Short and reached their greatest extent in 1859.  The last papal state, the Vatican City, was formally established as a separate state by the Lateran Treaty of 1929.

      Now for the math with the use of the 360 day calendar and Scripture reference where 1 day equals one year in the books of Numbers 14 : 33 - 34, and Ezekiel 4 : 4 - 6 for when The Beast may officially arise :

1.  1 year = 360 days and each month within that year = 30 days.

2.  42 months times 30 days = 1,260 days = 1,260 years.

3.  754 AD plus 1,260 years = 2014 = the year the eighth pope / king is officially in office Pope Ratzinger who was the 7th head pope / king.    What is stated here is enough to know if it holds true.

      UPDATE :  February 11, 2013.  Ok, the pope announced that he is resigning as of today.  Wow !!  Looks like I missed the bulls eye and overshot by a year !  There is a surprise in store as far as dates are concerned at the devil's triangle.  The above statement I had written may still hold true since the next pope will probably not be considered a true pope until current Pope Ratzinger passes on.  Just going to have to wait it out.  Now is the time to re-evaluate as to what is happening concerning the Vatican and how this all ties in with current and future events.

     UPDATE :  April 3, 2013.  The relationship and relevance between the above information, the final pope, the beast and the Jesuit Order.  All has been re-evaluated.  Minor changes had been made with the correct speculative information remaining which is now current confirmed information.

     Note :  Looks like I was off by only one year concerning the math, not bad !  The year 754 AD comes into question concerning history within the study called Rise of the Eighth Head and World War Three.  I tried and I was close although I was on the money concerning ( a cbc news story about Brexit ) and the four blood red moons in which I had not anticipated nor was looking for.  A blessing in disguise !  Give me a break guys.  I've been bombarded with all this info.  DOH !

     What we are dealing with here is Chapter 10 - 11 and Chapters 16 - 17 in the book of Revelation simultaneously and is happening right now.  Chapters 1 - 9 as well as chapters 12 - 13 have already happened and are continuing.  Chapters 14 - 22 minus 16 and 17 are in the wings and ready.

     Wow !!  Is the beast and Armageddon just on the horizon along with the the destruction of the harlot ??  Could this be the revived Holy Roman Empire based off of the Roman Empire that dissolved ??  Could we be the actual generation to see all of what is stated in revelation come to pass ??  Could the coming rebuilt temple in Jerusalem and the appearance of the two witnesses be next ??  Will we be experiencing Christ returning to be crowned in the rebuilt temple along with the war between The Lamb and The Beast  within the near future ??  Things are moving steadfastly and quickly within this world.  It is time to wake up and keep watch for your redemption draweth nigh.
