My Vision on the Seven Heads of Revelation 9, 12, 13, and 17

“Brethren and sisters, the Lord wants to impart to us increased light. He desires that we shall have distinct revealings of his glory; that ministers and people shall become strong in his strength. When the angel was about to unfold to Daniel the intensely interesting prophecies to be recorded for us who are to witness their fulfillment, the angel said, “Be strong, yea, be strong.” We are to receive the very same glory that was revealed to Daniel, because it is for God’s people in these last days, that they may give the trumpet a certain sound. God help us to work unitedly and as we never have worked before, is my prayer. There is need now of faithful Calebs, whose voices will be heard in clear, ringing notes, saying of the immortal inheritance, “Let us go up at once and possess it, for we are well able.” We need now the courage of God’s faithful servant of old; not one wavering, uncertain note should come from the watchers’ trumpets. They must be true to the sacred, solemn work that has been intrusted to them, and lead the flock of God in right pathways.” E. G. White, {RH December 24, 1889, Art. B, par. 13}

I supplicated the Lord for more evidence on the seven heads of Revelation, and all that they symbolize. This February 16, 2015, the Lord confirmed to me this day the following on the seven heads and the eighth head:


·       Heretofore, it has been taught that the seven heads of the beasts of Revelation 12, 13, and 17, refer only to Catholic popes from the beginning of the healing of the wound in 1929. I was shown that is an incomplete picture.

·       The seven headed beast of Revelation 12, 13, and 17, in a deeper historical sense, represent the symbols and customs of the paganism of the seven religions of the world, which symbols and customs were early embraced by the pontiffs of the Roman Catholic church, because that church has always compromised with paganism in order to win converts.

·       The religions don't fall, but the Kings, all of whom have embraced the religions, do fall. All of the popes from the first to the last, embrace aspects of the pagan religions because they worship Satan who is the author of those religions. Those religions constitute his Synagogue, and BECAUSE HE IS OF THE SEVEN, JUST SO, THE NON-CHRISTIAN RELIGIONS ARE OF HIM WHO IS OF THE SEVEN HEADS. Satan is the embodiment of the seven heads and so is his theology, just as Christ is the embodiment of His Kingdom, and the truth of His religion is the embodiment of Him, because He is the way, the Truth and the Life. These elements cannot be separated from Christ. In the same way, the elements of evil and error cannot be separated from Satan and the seven heads in whom dwells his spirit.

·       By way of further example of my meaning, I recall an incident that occurred many years ago when John Paul II came to Alberta, Canada. He met with the local native Indians here and told them that the Catholic church could embrace their religion. Their religion is totally pantheistic paganism. The popes have made these compromises with Satan's Synagogue of false, non-Christian religions in an attempt to draw converts on the one hand, and because they worship Lucifer and his theology on the other.

·       In an end-time final application of the seven heads of Revelation 12, 13, and 17, Revelation 17 introduces another element--an eighth entity, an 8th head (Satan), who was the king all the Popes of Rome pay/paid homage to, thus he is of the seven heads, and more accurately the king of all that has been in controversy with the Kingdom of Christ.

·       The eighth head is like a third phase of Rome (in addition to pagan and papal) Rome, which becomes completely fulfilled when Satan personifies Christ. But it is not only Rome that is involved, for when Satan personifies Christ, he appears to all the various seven major non-Christian factions as their benefactor as well. So the seven heads on the beast that carries the woman, signify more than just Rome. They also symbolize all the major non-Christian religions that hate Rome as Satan does. They hate her for her horrid, murderous history if nothing else! Ellen White attests that it is the horrors committed by Rome that have caused Christianity to be hated.

·       The eighth king of Revelation 17 is Satan. He was/is of the seven because he was the spirit behind them all.

·       I was shown it is because of the following reasons that the seven head symbolism includes the seven major religions of the world:


1.    The same Spirit of Satan (Lucifer) has been worshipped by both papal Rome and the non-Christian religions of the world.

2.    All the popes, unbeknownst to the laity, worship Lucifer,

3.    Rome has always retained much of the pagan symbols and customs of the seven major non-Christian religions of the world--even atheism and evolution, in order to convert the patrons of the non-Christian elements of the world.

The Seven major religions of the world that I referred to which are full of blasphemies, are:

1.    Egypt: Ancient Egyptian religion was a complex system of polytheistic beliefs and rituals which were an integral part of ancient Egyptian society.

2.    Assyria: The ancient Assyrians were pagans, which means they worshipped many gods. Each god or goddess represented a different thing.

3.    Babylon: All false religions began in Babylonia

4.    Persia: Zoroastrianism. The ancient pre-Islamic religion of Persia

5.    Greece: Polytheism--The major gods and goddesses: Zeus, Poseidon, Hades, Apollo, Artemis, Aphrodite, Ares, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Athena, Hermes, Demeter, Hestia and Hera.

6.    Rome: Roman Catholism has adopted paganism from all of the other 5 heads that reigned before her.

7.    United States: Apostate Protestantism. The Lamblike Beast that clasp hands with Rome to speak like a Dragon.

·       Some are teaching that pope Frances is the eighth head that is of the seven. That cannot be because Satan is the eighth head and certain events must transpire before Satan assumes that open role, and those events HAVE NOT yet occurred.

·       Before the eighth king comes on the scene, the FIFTH ANGEL will have had to sound, with a star falling from heaven, and the bottomless pit will be opened. Satan will have had to personate Christ, and the Loud Cry would be finished, to wit:


Rev 9:1 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.
Rev 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
Rev 9:11 And
they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon [SATAN], but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. [SAME AS LUCIFER/SATAN]


This proof (above on Rev. 9:1-11) was shown to me by my angel Gabriel. I have never seen this proof from any other study of the eighth king of Revelation 17. As well, I was earlier shown the clear brevity, yet profound inherent proof taught in the following verses of Revelation 17:8 and 11.


·       The Roman pontiff will rule for 42 months, 3 ½ years from the inception of legislation of the National Sunday Law.

·       After the 42 month period, the fifth angel (Trumpet) sounds. Satan personifies Christ’s coming and legislates the first death decree and no buy and sell decree for all who will not take his mark by worshipping him and vowing to keep Sunday sacred and to not keep Saturday sacred.

·       The second death decree near the very end, is Satan’s final attempt to rid the earth of the 144,000 saints in ONE NIGHT, The Great Controversy, p. 635.

·       It is at this time that Ezekiel chapters 5 and 9 are fulfilled. God makes an ensample of Adventists before the entire world because of their abominable apostasies.

·       The Great Controversy, pp. 653-656 fulfillment of Ezekiel 9 is on Babylon and the world, as qualified in the last paragraph of page 653.

·       Ezekiel 9 is TWOFOLD, GC, p. 25, BEGINNING AT HIS SANCTUARY, HIS CHURCH, Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 211, and ending with the other fallen churches and the world.


·       When you juxtapose the following two verses, it is obvious that the eighth that is of the seven is Satan, who ascends out of the bottomless pit.


Rev 17:8   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. 


Rev 17:11   And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 




It is important to recognize that in Revelation 12, there is depicted a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns upon his head.


Rev 12:3   And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 

Rev 12:4   And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. 

Rev 12:5   And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. 

Rev 12:6   And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. 

Rev 12:7  And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 

Rev 12:8   And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 

Rev 12:9   And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 

Rev 12:10   And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. 

Rev 12:11   And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. 

Rev 12:12   Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. 

Rev 12:13  And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. 

Rev 12:14   And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. 

Rev 12:15   And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. 

Rev 12:16   And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. 

Rev 12:17   And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. 




Rev 13:1  And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 

Rev 13:2   And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 

Rev 13:3   And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast. 

Rev 13:4   And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? 

Rev 13:5   And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months [THREE AND ONE HALF YEARS]. 

Rev 13:6   And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. 

Rev 13:7   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. 

Rev 13:8   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. 

Rev 13:9   If any man have an ear, let him hear. 

Rev 13:10   He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. 

Rev 13:11  And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. 

Rev 13:12   And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 

Rev 13:13   And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, 

Rev 13:14   And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 

Rev 13:15   And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 

Rev 13:16   And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 

Rev 13:17   And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 

Rev 13:18   Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. 



Rev 17:7  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 her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. 

Rev 17:8   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. 

Rev 17:9   And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 

Rev 17:10   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.  

Rev 17:11   And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 

Rev 17:12   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. 

Rev 17:13   These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. 

Rev 17:14   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. 

Rev 17:15   And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 

Rev 17:16   And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. 

Rev 17:17   For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled. 

Rev 17:18   And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
