The Identity of the Antichrist, the Two Beasts of Revelation, and the Whore of Babylon

The first beast of Revelation has seven heads,

And I stood upon the sand of the sea. And I saw from out of the sea a wild beast ascending, having ten horns and seven heads… (Revelation 13:1 [ABP])

Where the eighth and final head of the first beast of Revelation,

The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction. (Revelation 17:11 [NIV])

Will be a “United States of Europe”, for a head symbolizes a kingdom in relation to this other vision,

“He gave me this explanation: ‘The fourth beast is a fourth kingdom that will appear on earth… (Daniel 7:23 [NIV])

Where this is the final kingdom that comes after the Ottomans as the seventh kingdom, the Romans as the sixth kingdom, the Greeks as the fifth kingdom, the Medo-Persians as the fourth kingdom, the Babylonians as the third kingdom, the Assyrians as the second kingdom, and Egyptians as the first kingdom, who were the first to come against the people of God, which is why five kings had already fallen when the vision was given to John,

And there are seven kings — the five fallen, the one isthe other not yet is come… (Revelation 17:10 [ABP])

For at the time the vision was given, the Romans, which were the sixth kingdom, were in authority, with the previous five kingdoms already fallen, where even though the rule of the Romans eventually declined, the fourth beast of Daniel, which we know also symbolized the Romans, will still be alive at the second coming of Jesus Christ to be thrown into the aeonial fire,

After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, terrifying and dreadful and exceedingly strong. It had great iron teeth; it devoured and broke in pieces and stamped what was left with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns… “I looked then because of the sound of the great words that the horn was speaking. And as I looked, the beast was killed, and its body destroyed and given over to be burned with fire. (Daniel 7:7-11 [ESV])

But the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who had performed the signs on its behalf. With these signs he had deluded those who had received the mark of the beast and worshiped its image. The two of them were thrown alive into the fiery lake of burning sulfur. (Revelation 19:20 [NIV])

Because it has lived on through popes, and will eventually become a revived rule of the Romans just before the second coming of Jesus Christ, which will be a “United States of Europe”, whose capital will ultimately be in the same city where the Vatican sits, in Rome, because the woman, which symbolizes the Vatican,

And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. (Revelation 17:3 [ESV])

Sits on the the first beast of Revelation, whose heads not only symbolize the past seven kingdoms and the final formation of a United States of Europe, but also the city of seven hills, Rome,

“This calls for a mind with wisdom. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. They are also seven kings…
(Revelation 17:9-10 [NIV])

And because Rome will again be the capital of this revived rule of the Romans is why the world will be astonished, because it once was, was not, and it came back,

The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and yet will come up out of the Abyss and go to its destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because it once was, now is not, and yet will come. (Revelation 17:8 [NIV])

Because it will once again become a Roman centralized democratic republic, which is the beast that “was”, which will also be the healing of the sixth head of the first beast, which was the Romans,

One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast. (Revelation 13:3 [NIV])

Yet because the Vatican is steering the future existence of the United States of Europe, which relates to the woman riding the beast, she will be hated by the ten final entities that give their authority to the United States of Europe, and also by the United States of Europe,

The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast. (Revelation 17:12-13 [NIV])

The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute… (Revelation 17:16 [NIV])

And they will expose something shameful about the Vatican, hence “leave her naked”, for nakedness is related to shame,

They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked… (Revelation 17:16 [NIV])

Then they will ransack the Vatican, hence “they will eat her flesh”,

they will eat her flesh… (Revelation 17:16 [NIV])

Then they will burn the Vatican, hence “burn her with fire”,

burn her with fire. (Revelation 17:16 [NIV])

Where this destruction happens shortly before the second coming of Jesus Christ, where he will begin to rule and be united with the elect,

Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. (Revelation 19:6-7 [NIV])

And because of her destruction no one will no longer be able to buy from businesses, for the banks of the world will collapse,

And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: The merchandise of gold and of silver and of precious stones and of pearls and of fine linen and of purple and of silk and of scarlet and of all thyine wood and of all manner vessels of ivory and of all manner vessels of most precious wood and of brass and of iron and of marble and cinnamon and odours and ointments and frankincense and wine and oil and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and of sheep, and of horses, and of chariots and of bodies and souls of men. And the fruits of the desire of thy soul are departed from thee, and all the fat and excellent things are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.  (Revelation 18:13-14 [JB2000])

Because all banks of the world trace back to the Vatican, from which the businesses of the world have indirectly enriched themselves through her,

The merchants of these things, who were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, (Revelation 18:15 [JB2000])

And they cast dust on their heads and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, in which all that had ships in the sea were made rich by reason of her riches! for in one hour is she made desolate. (Revelation 18:19 [JB2000])

Where this will be the first portion of destruction she will receive, which will be by men, for her punishment comes in two portions,

Give back to her as she has given; pay her back double for what she has done. Pour her a double portion from her own cup. (Revelation 18:6 [NIV])

A second angel followed and said, “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great,‘ which made all the nations drink the maddening wine of her adulteries.” (Revelation 14:8 [NIV])

Where the second portion of destruction against her will come from God, where she will be violently shaken and split into three at the final bowl of wrath, which happens after the second coming of Jesus Christ,

The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. (Revelation 16:19 [NIV])

With a mighty voice he shouted: “‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. (Revelation 18:2 [NIV])

Below are pictures I took when I went to the Vatican,

She is truly as astonishing as John saw in his vision of her,

I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy people, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus. When I saw her, I was greatly astonished. (Revelation 17:6 [NIV])

And below are pictures of whats already happening in Europe, where European leaders recently met with the pope at the Vatican to sign the Rome Declaration, which is a pact to further unify Europe,
