There are certain "Kings" who are entertwined with "the harlot"; however, these are not the same "kings" who destroy the harlot. The "kings" who
destroy the harlot are not world leaders or any visible institutions. It is a puzzle.The language has been muddled. Check out some other
Revelation 17:2 says, "Every
king on earth has slept with her." That doesn't leave any out.
Revelations 17:11 says, "You also saw a beast that used to be and no longer is. That beast is one of the seven kings
who will return as the
eighth king, but only to be destroyed."
Revelations 17:12 says, "The ten horns that you saw are ten more kings, who have not yet come into power
". Revelations continues in 13, "They
all think alike and will give their power and authority to the beast."
These scriptures clearly indicate the details of a consolidation of power. I believe we are seeing this happening right now. Then soon... "The ten
horns and the beast will start hating the shameless woman. They will strip off her clothes and leave her naked. Then they will eat her flesh and
throw the rest of her body into a fire." Revelations 17:16
The Jews had a custom of throwing trash into a sulfur pit outside the walls of Jerusalem. At times, even criminals who were executed were also
disposed of "into a fire" because they didn't warrant a decent burial. The destruction of Babylon the Great will be a complete destruction as chapter
18 of Revelations brings out, "Every luxury and all your glory will be lost forever. You will never get them back."
I'm interested with your take on this. All the scriptures you mentioned are here. The same phrases δεκα κερατα and θηριου are used in
these scriptures, denoting they are talking about the same "ten horns" and "wild beast".
