The Beast with Seven Heads in Revelation 13 has caused much confusion for many students of our Father’s Word. Many believe we are waiting on this seven headed Beast to rise from the sea which are the peoples of the earth. We are going to discover in this Chapter the seven heads are simply seven kingdoms that have and will reign over the earth, specifically Jerusalem. Moreover, five of the seven heads or kingdoms have already fallen while one is currently in power, even today. It is this kingdom that will receive a Deadly Wound that will be healed by the false messiah Satan who will appear on earth claiming to be Christ.
We will also learn in this Chapter there are Ten Kings, but two separate sets of them. One set consists of Ten Kings of the Earth who are Clay Kings while the other set consists of Ten Supernatural Kings who are Iron Kings. The Ten Kings of the Earth, The Clay Kings will rule in the future after the Four Winds are released which is just prior to the Tribulation of Satan. While the Ten Supernatural Kings, The Iron Kings will only rule for One Hour which is the time of the Tribulation of Satan as they are Satan’s angels that he brings to the earth with him. Let us now document these facts in God’s Word.
