The 7th Head of the Beast Described
The following is a critical Scriptural interpretative analysis of the technical construct of the 'unique' 7th Head of the Scarlet Abyss Beast and the restrictions that must apply to its prophetic design.
It is extremely important to note that with respect to the ONLY Biblical references regarding the 7 Heads and the 10 Horns of the Beast(s) listed below, there is NEVER once the mention of an 8th Head, but rather an 8th King (Rev. 17:11)
Revelation 12:3 (KJV)
Revelation 13:1 (KJV)
Revelation 17:3 (KJV)
Revelation 17:7 (KJV)
Revelation 17:9 (KJV)
Revelation 17:11 (KJV)
Therefore, the 7th Head of the Beast must consist of the 7th Short Space King of Rev. 17:10 and the 8th Abyss Beast King of Rev. 17:11, along with the 10 Horn Kings of the above Passages. To this end, IF John ONLY saw 7 Heads on the Beast with 10 Horns, in respect to BOTH the Red Dragon Satan Beast and the Scarlet Abyss Beast, then per Rev. 17:12 those 10 Horns which did NOT exist in John's day of his vision, during the 6th Head, have no other alternative than to be 'attached' to the 7th Head of the Beast. It must be understood that these 10 Horns did/do not float in the empty space of abstraction, but were normally and symbolically shown to John as attached to 'A' Head of the Beast - the 7th Head. Moreover, the 10 Horns of the Abyss Beast per Dan. 7:24 and Rev. 17:12 are shown to co-exist contemporaneously/simultaneously during the hour/season of the Beast and not before.
Meanwhile, we know form Rev.13:1-5 that the Scarlet Abyss Beast ONLY exists for 42 months in the timeframe of the Great Tribulation, and in conjunction with his human host - the 11th Little Horn Man AC. However, it must be noted that the Scarlet Abyss Beast and the 10 Crowned Horns shown in Rev.13:1-5, rise BEFORE the 11th Little Horn Man AC. The Little Horn AC rises AFTER and AMONG the 10 Horns per Dan. 7:8 & 24.
Daniel 7:24 (KJV)
Daniel 7:8 (KJV)
Therefore, the 7th Head must exist in two phases... seeing that these 8 Kings did/do NOT co-exist simultaneously, but rather sequentially, and the 7th Short Space King must rule BEFORE the 8th Abyss Beast King. As such, this mandates that the 10 Horns which are directly correlated with the 8th Abyss Beast King and his host the 11th Little Horn Man AC, must exist during the latter phase of the 7th Head and NOT during the reign of the first Short Space King.
What then can be concluded, is that the 7th Head will contiguously exist in two parts (the former and the latter) having TWO Kings - the 7th Short Space King of Rev. 17:10 followed by the 8th Abyss Beast King of Rev. 17:11 and the 10 Horns. Thus, the 7th Kingdom will NOT fall as the other former 6 Heads/Kingdoms did - it will simply transition from the conquering 7th Short Space King to that of the 8th Abyss Beast King.
To reiterate, John ONLY saw 7 Heads on the Beast with 10 Horns and NOT 8 Heads - He was TOLD by the Angel that there would be an 8th King... but the 8th King would have to rule the 10 Horns as well.
In summary, if the 7th Head has ALREADY come and gone then this would conflict with the above supposition thereby mandating that the 10 Horns would have already come and gone as well - which is NOT true.
I personally suggest that the WHITE HORSE RIDER of Rev. 6:2, who has a Bow (greek toxon), NOT Sword, and is GIVEN a Crown/Kingdom, is the first conquering 7th Head Short Space King, that is restoring the Kingdom/Mountain part of the former Wounded Head (the Babylonian Empire) preparing the way for the 8th Scarlet Abyss Beast King - ADONIKAM/Abaddon/Apollyon - the DESTROYER/perdition.
