Three Kings Killed and Seven Submit

Dani'el 7:24 and Revelation 17:12-13 and 17

   DIG: Who are the ten horns? Who is the other king who will rise among them? How is he different? What will be the end result? Were does this fit in the big picture of things?

    The attempt of the antichrist to gain political control will only be delayed by his supposed death. But after his counterfeit resurrection, the second world war of the Great Tribulation will continue until three of the ten kings are killed. The ten horns are the ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will rise, different from the earlier ones. He will subdue three kings (Daniel 7:24). This other king will be the antichrist.

    Once the three kings are killed, the other seven submit to his authority. The ten horns you saw are the ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast, or the antichrist. They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast (17:12-13). The same point is made later. For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God’s words are fulfilled (17:17). The seven other kings will all agree to relinquish their power to the antichrist. With that decision, he will succeed in taking over the political control of the whole world, with the exception of Bozrah in Jordan where the majority of the Jews will take refuge. The second political system of the Great Tribulation will be started at that point. The next goal of the beast will be to gain control of the world’s religious system. He will need to remove all opposition. This will include religious Babylon, the two witnesses and, of course, those bothersome Jews.
