    Revelation Chapter 17 VERSE 12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.” AND THE TEN HORNS WHICH YOU SAW: “Which you saw” is important. The Revelator is mopping up details. He has disposed...

    Revelation Chapter 17 VERSE 8 continued “The beast that thou saw WAS, and IS NOT; and IS ABOUT TO COME up out of the abyss…” Point # 2: The PARTIAL beast (of Verses 8, 11-13, 16, 17) is THUS SAID to be “of the seven,” but NOT ONE of the seven.” (We should not look for a definition of this...

    Revelation Chapter 17 Now a second look at our subject from another perspective, one which when rightfully grasps seems just as plausible as the first. VERSE 8 continued “The beast that thou saw WAS, and IS NOT; and IS ABOUT TO COME up out of the abyss…” “All students of Revelation know the...
