Remember the 6th king is the 8th king which is also the beast (6+2=8):
They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, the other has not yet come; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while. 11 The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.
1. The funeral of Pope John Paul II was held on 8 April 2005, 6 days after his death on 2 April
2. There are 8 candles on his coffin. 6 big candles and 2 small ones.
3. In the movie Angels & Demons they show the name John Paul 8. He was John Paul 2 (+6=8)

But it is the weirdest thing I have ever heard... unless he isn't talking about the past but the future.
Why is it important for every Christian to visit Jerusalem and the Holy Land?
Because of revelation. For us, it all started there. It is like “heaven on earth.” A foretaste of what awaits us hereafter, in the heavenly Jerusalem.
Yes, this is the way to go about it. Make sure you know the real Christ and the false one will stick out like dog's b--ls.
Those filled with God's Holy Spirit will be given the gift to DISCERN where they are and who is on the stage--they will SEE not with their physical eyes but in their heart that a certain person is not right and they will UNDERSTAND

You have to look at the Bible in perspective here.
God made very clear the things he wanted people to know and understand, he doesn't put riddles in there that people need to figure out.
Revelations is probably more symbolic of a larger point rather than some hidden message.
You also need to consider that if God did want to put a riddle in there that its highly unlikely that anyone would ever figure it out.
I don't imagine God is sitting up there in Heaven going, "Damn...now how did they figure that out? I thought I did such a good job with that one."
Its interesting though.
"One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed"
He was shot and almost died in 1981.
On February 11th, 1929, an historic treaty was signed between the Italian Government and the Vatican re-establishing the political power and diplomatic standing of the Catholic Church, which had been lost when Italy seized Rome, the last of the Papal States, on September 20th, 1870.
For 59 years the Pope was a virtual prisoner in the Vatican, never leaving it until the pact was signed, resolving the "Roman question". Known as the Lateran Treaty or Lateran Concordat of 1929, this was the momentous event prophesied in the book of Revelation:
Even Catholic newspapers reporting the event declared the "wound" to be healed by the Lateran Treaty.
The dragon stood on the shore of the sea. And I saw a beast coming out of the sea. It had ten horns and seven heads"
Revelation 12:9 - And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Isaiah 27:1 - In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that [is] in the sea.
the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
