In my previous article I began focusing on Rev. 17:11 which reads:
“The beast which was and is not, is himself also an eighth and is one of the seven, and he goes to destruction.”
I pointed out that the idea of the “eighth” pictures a resurrection, a new beginning. But now we must ask: Who is this “eighth,” this resurrection of the beast?
In Rev. 17:9–10 we read:
“Here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits, and they are seven kings; five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a little while.”
