The Ten Kings of Revelation and The New World Order?



The Ten Kings that are mentioned in the Book of Revelation. What does the Prophecy say about The Ten Kings, are they here now, if not when will they appear, where and how and why. What is the significance of The Ten Kings in Revelation Prophecy.

The picture above is merely a demonstration of who the Ten Kings of Revelation could be at the time of writing in 2017.  It is not an indicator who the Ten Kings actually are!

There are many theories out there who The Ten Kings of Revelation are, ranging from that they will appear in Europe, others say they will appear in the Middle Eastern Region, to something that is more along the lines of the New World Order as in a global empire split into ten regions and ruled by ten kings for a short period of time.

The Bible Quotes concerning the Ten Kings in Revelation

Daniel 7:24
 And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

Revelation 17:12
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

Revelation 17:16.
And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

As Revelation 17:16 demonstrates, there is a strong connection between Mystery Babylon known also as The Whore and The Ten Kings. The time span that these ten kings actually rule is mentioned as one hour which would be a prophetic one hour.

A prophetic week = 7 years (as mentioned in Daniel 9:24-27
A prophetic day =  1 year
A prophetic hour = 1 year or 52 weeks/24 = just over 2 weeks!

The Five Theories Simplified

1. The EU and Revived Roman Empire Theory hinted at in Daniel 2
The Roman Empire covered all countries that surrounded the Mediterranean at it's peak and some say that the European Union is fulfilling Bible Prophecy and reviving the Roman Empire as it potentially could be spreading into Turkey and maybe beyond at it's present rate.

The European Union (EU) is a political and economic union of a number of  countries in Europe. Since July 2013, there are 28 member states in the European Union: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

The Prophecy that is often quoted in regards to this European Union Roman Empire Revival is the Daniel 2:32-35 and 40-43 below where Daniel reveals the dream of Nebuchadnezzar in which he saw a great image that nobody could interpret. The interpretation of this dream revealed to Daniel in a night vision which constituted the first comprehensive revelation

Daniel 2:32-35
32. This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,
33. His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.
34. Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.
35. Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshing floors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

Daniel 2:40-43
40. And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: inasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.
41. And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.
42. And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.
43. And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

Many say the Ten Toes represent the Ten Kings and the Iron and the Clay represent the diversity of the region where the peoples will become one region but due to this diversity will not mix just like Iron and Clay will not mix. This new empire or kingdom will eventually take over the rest of the world.

It's a compelling prophecy when tied in with the European Union and ticks many boxes but it just has a few flaws that put a large fly in the ointment.
1. The Flag of Europe has 12 stars and not Ten that would indicate the Ten Regions strongly indicated by the Daniel Prophecy.
2. The European Union currently has 28 countries as members with a possible extra three including Turkey being considered to enter the mix. Considerably more than the ten strongly hinted at in Daniel and Revelation.
3. If the Roman empire was being revived via the European Union then surely the HQ would be based in Rome. At present it is based in Brussels.


2. The Middle East and Israel/Jerusalem Mystery Babylon Theory
Based on the very close relationship between Mystery Babylon and The Ten Kings in Bible Prophecy as illustrated in the verse from Revelation below.

Revelation 17:16.
And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

If Mystery Babylon was indeed Jerusalem and Israel then the possibility of the Ten Kings being located in the Middle East rather than Europe would make prophetic sense. Israel is the only country in the Middle Eastern area that is predominantly non Muslim as in Jewish compared to the surrounding nations which are all without exception Muslim. It would make it the perfect target for the fulfilment of the Revelation 17:16 prophecy.

This theory is given even more credibility by Psalm 83 that is often quoted by Bible Scholars that mentions Israel and the following ten nations or peoples that could be The Ten Kings that turn against Mystery Babylon if indeed it is Israel and Jerusalem.

The Ten Nations mentioned against Israel in Psalm 83:4-8
Ten nations mentioned Edom, Ishmaelites, Moab, Hagarenes, Gebal, Ammon, Amalek, The Philistines, Tyre, Assur

4. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.
5. For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
6. The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
7. Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8. Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah.

The "They" mentioned in Verse 5 many say is referencing The Ten Kings confirmed by some solid cross references mentioned in Revelation. (See video at end of article)

1. Edom= Palestinians and South Jordan

2. Ishmaelites=Saudi Arabia? Read also Genesis 25:12-16 for the history of the Ishmaelites

12 Now these are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham’s son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah’s handmaid, bare unto Abraham: 
13 And these are the names of the sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam, 
14 And Mishma, and Dumah, and Massa, 
15 Hadar, and Tema, Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah: 
16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes according to their nations.

3. Moab= Palestinians and Jordan along the Dead Sea

4. Hagarenes= Egyptians

5. Gebal= Hezbollah and North Lebanon

6. Ammon= Palestinians and North Jordan

7. Amalek= Sinai

8. The Philistines= Hamasof Gaza

9. Tyre= Hezbollah and South Lebanon

10. Assur= Syria and Northern Iraq (Assyria)

NB: See also The Assyrians mentioned in Ezekiel 23:4-10
Their original homeland was thought to be located in the area around the Tigris and Euphrates. Today, the indigenous Assyrian homeland areas are "part of today's northern Iraq, southeastern Turkey, northwestern Iran and northeastern Syria".

3. The Middle East and Mecca/Saudi Arabia Mystery Babylon Theory
A similar theory based on the very close relationship between Mystery Babylon and The Ten Kings in Bible Prophecy as illustrated in the verse from Revelation below.

Revelation 17:16.
And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

If Mystery Babylon was indeed Mecca and Saudi Arabia rather than Israel and Jerusalem then the possibility of The Ten Kings being located in the Middle Eastern area yet again would make perfect sense in Prophecy terms and would tie in with the Middle Eastern theme that the Book of Revelation presents. Although Saudi Arabia is a Muslim nation just like it's surrounding neighbours, Saudi Arabia is the only Muslim country within the Middle Eastern Region that has extensive ties with The West via Oil especially the US via the Petro Dollar and other trades. Due to its location and also as a result of this relationship with the West, a Revelation 17:16 scenario  just like Israel and Jerusalem is a very real future reality? Saudi Arabia even more so than Israel is surrounding on nearly all sides by other countries!
                                                                                                                                                                       

The Ten Global Regions Theory
This theory is based around the first two verses mentioned in Revelation 13

Revelation 13:1-2
1. And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2. And the beast I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat and great authority.

The sea mentioned in these verses refers to many nations, tongues and countries and the Beast mentioned is the Anti Christ who eventually rules the world for a short period of time. Many say these two verses refer to the dawn of The New World Order which would refer to the words power, seat and great authority.

There are many theories on what the Ten Kings represent in New World Order terms but most agree in a New World Order context that the world would be temporarily split into 10 new (not currently existing) regions which as mentioned would be ruled over by Ten Kings for a short period of time. This short period mentioned earlier would equate to a "prophetic hour" which would equate to one week.

The G10 Nations Theory

The Group of Ten or The G10 is a group of historically Ten relatively prosperous industrial nations which was set up and agreed back in 1962 to lend money to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). They are Belgium, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Sweden, Germany, UK, and USA. Switzerland became the eleventh member, but the group is still called The G-10. Switzerland in many ways is a politically neutral country unlike it's other members.

Again this is another possibility where each member country would control a newly created region creating the ten toes of Daniel or the Ten Horns mentioned in Revelation.


Note: G-7/G-8 and G-10 are not related in any way though they have some members in common.


Summary

There are many more theories and possible Bible Verses that provide a few more details on who these Ten Kings could possibly be but the five theories mentioned previously which revolve round either a revived Roman Empire based on the current expanding European Union, Mecca or Jerusalem and the Middle East area and Ten Global Regions either set up by ten completely new Kings or Presidents or existing world leaders part of the G10, G12 or BRICS

When you look more closely at the Book of Revelation and the prophecy it contains you realise that the Middle East seems to contain the key to the course of events and how they unfold in prophecy terms.
