Revelation/Raz Galah/Secrets Revealed: 17:7: And the malak said to me, why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and ten horns.
Revelation: 17:8: The beast that you saw 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 observe the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
The beast that "was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit" is the on and off again, rise and fall and rise again condition of this Roman governmental power. The ascending out of the "bottomless pit" is to tell us where this beast (government) receives his power (Revelation 9:1).
Revelation: 17:9: And here is the mind, which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sits.
Revelation: 17:10: And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must continue a short space.
The understanding of verse 10 is for our present day. The King at the time of the writing of Revelation was Vespasian. He is the one referred to as "…and one is…" He ruled Rome from 5050 FCA - 5060 FCA/69 - 79 CE. It was Titus, Vespasian's ben that captured Yahvshalam. Titus Flavius Vespasian is the one who at the time of the writing of Revelation had "…not yet come…" When he did come to power he ruled for only two years. Truly he did only rule for "a short space". He is the 7th king; but remember there is an 8th king who is of the 7.
Now you must understand; I myself did not comprehend or make this association until the time of this writing (06/10/6983*  of YaHVeH's calendar [08-16-02]). This nebuah/foretelling is in relationship with what king's (ruler of a government) touch Yahvshalam while the House of Yahudah is a nation. The first time Yahvshalam was taken, the House of Yahudah was the only remaining house of the two houses of Ya'akob (The House of Yisrael and the House of Yahudah 1 Melekiym/Kings 11). King Nebuchadnezzar took Yahvshalam and some of the House of Yahudah captive. Daniy`Yah/Daniel was in this captivity. The second time Yahvshalam was taken the House of Yahudah was set up again in Yahvshalam as a nation. This took place during the time our Redeemer Yahshua ha`Mashiyach walked on the earth in the flesh, was offered up, raised from the dead and now is at YaHVeH our ABBIY`s right hand. Titus took Yahvshalam around 5051 FCA/70 CE.
Revelation: 17:11: And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goes into perdition.
This brings us to our present day. The House of Yahudah beginning from 5051 FCA/70 CE did not become a sovereign nation again until our modern times. The only way this foretelling can be fulfilled is when the House of Yahudah is a nation and occupying Yahvshalam. This happened on the Babylonian 5th month 14th day of the month, 1948; the time "Judaism" has determined was 02/05/5708 [6929* FCA]. But the 70 year countdown (Yirmiyah 25:12; Daniel 9:2) did not start until the modern day "Jewish State" became members of the United Nations in 1949/6930*. The 8th king who is of the 7 has not been revealed yet. Rome ended as an Empire in the West in 5457 FCA/476 CE and in the East 6434 FCA/1453 CE. The foretelling of the 8th king does not pick up until our time when the House of Yahudah becomes a nation again. I know some will say: "What about Justinian, Napoleon or even Hitler?" What you must remember is when Justinian, Napoleon and Hitler were in power the House of Yahudah was not a nation. There has always been Yahudiym and Yudiym living in the Promised Land but they were not considered their own sovereign nation until today. The Roman Empire through these leaders (Justinian, Napoleon and Hitler) caused the empire to be an empire, then not, then an empire again. THE FORETELLING IS FOR OUR TIME!!! Praise YaHVeH in the name of Yahshua! I'm sure many students of the scriptures have already made this connection. Be patient with me, I'm slow of understanding sometimes. I think this is due to my hard head.
1st head) Augustus, b. Sept. 23, 63 BCE, d. Aug. 19, 14 CE, was the first Roman emperor (27 BCE - 14 CE; see Rome, ancient).
2nd head) Tiberius Julius Caesar Augustus, b. Nov. 16, 42 BCE, d. Mar. 16, 37 BCE, was the second emperor (r. ¥ 14-37 CE) of Rome.
3rd head) Caligula (Gaius), b. Aug. 31, ¥ 12 CE, d. Jan. 24, ¥ 41 CE, Roman emperor from 37 to 41 CE,
4th head) Claudius, b. Aug. 1, 10 CE, d. Oct. 13, ¥ 54 CE, was Roman emperor from 41 to 54 CE. His full name was Tiberius Claudius Drusus Nero Germanicus.
5th head) Nero Claudius Caesar, who ruled Rome from ¥ 54 to 68 CE,
6th head) Vespasian, b. Nov. 17, ¥ 9 CE, d. June 4, 79 CE, Roman emperor (r. 69Ð79) and founder of the Flavian dynasty (69Ð96 CE),
7th head) Titus Flavius Vespasianus, b. Dec. 30, ¥ 39 CE, d. Sept. 13, 81 CE, spent most of his life in military service before succeeding (79 - 81 CE) his father, Vespasian, as Roman emperor. In 70 CE, Titus was entrusted with the command against the Jewish rebels. He captured Yahvshalam and in 71 CE returned to Rome, where his father made him commander of the Praetorian Guard.
8th head of the 7) is for our time. This nebuah/foretelling could not be fulfilled until the House of Yahudah became a nation again. Nothing else can apply for this nebuah. The 8th king of the 7 has yet to be revealed.
Revelation: 17:12: And the ten horns which you saw are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
The "ten kings" are related to Middle East kings. Some of the kings if not all will involve are Ishmael (Arab people), Edom (Esau), Moab and Ammon. Refer to T`hiyliym/Psalms 83.
The modern day Roman Empire is now united as the EU. The EU is the modern day beast power. The structure of the EU will have to change. No Yisraeliy nation will be connected with it when it goes against Yahvshalam. This means that the UK and other Northern Western European nations will not be part of it when the time comes. I believe W.W. II was a marker of who the Yisraeliy nations of Europe are. Read articles:
