Who/ What are the seven kings of Rev. 17:10? What is the significance of this prophecy to the end times?

Rev. 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

Rev. 17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.

Please share quotes from the Scriptures and from the Spirit of Prophecy that we may understand Rev. 17:10, as we pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. There are two interpretations being taught in our church.  Which one is the truth?

I  heard 2 answers to this also and I am studying it...haven't come to the right conclusion yet.

Pr Kenneth Cox has expounded on this I will not do justice to his lecture by repeating what he said from memory God Bless

The latest of these was on 3 ABN where Pr Cox made a series on the whole book of revelation and one lecture was especially devoted to Chapter 17 in revelation. Pr Cox deals wit this passage in great detail. Hoping this will be of some help. If it is on youtube or not I do not know. 

Thank You that would be great

Bro. Ian ,  I haven't found it either.  Still looking for it.

I think Pr Cox guards his sermons well it may be that you have to buy the whole series from him.

If you can get 3 ABN his series is running there currently I myself have recorded from there

Would you call from 2005 to 2013 "a short space"?  Maybe it is compared to 30 years as pope

by some of the others.


We shouldn't have very long to wait to see whether the prophecy of Revelation 17 is being understood

correctly.  If this pope's reign was the short space, then the next one would be called, "the beast".

Why "the beast"?  Severe persecution?


Some believe that the next pope's name is "Peter".  Watch and see.


I believe James White said that until prophecy is written in history we should not be dogmatic.


There is examples where prophecy is fulfilled in more than one way to me it is possible that it can be fulfilled both ways and we have not long to wait any way
