The Beast Dissected

The angel's interpretation continues on;

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.
Rev 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. (KJV)

The seven heads of the scarlet beast "that was" are the five refining churches with the synagogue of satan (as a sixth church being the source of leaven) and the device of the "NWO USA beast" in the form of the image. In fact each of these seven heads is a church - as polluted with the false doctrine of OT israel accumulated from the five fallen kingdoms in John's day (Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Persia and Greece). and the sixth head, which is Rome "that is" in John's day. (Rome provides more false doctrine as from the source, or dragon.) The seven kings mentioned are separate from the seven heads (mountains) of this beast, and refer to the seven kingdoms of the dragon's dominion only - of which this scarlet beast would be the eighth, a "little horn".

Then the one that must yet come is the image to the USA beast, not the USA itself, which is the "beast that was". This scarlet beast "yet is" and is different.

The image must continue a short space, it is indeed the recipient of God's wrath but is permitted to continue until the least has drawn out the last of the flock of God as from that "tabernacle" which is left to them desolate.

Now however we see that the beast that "was and is not" is merely the presence of OT israel's false doctrine in the Church. I.e. Israel with every false doctrine it has ever collected - the return of the state of israel and its uptake in the image is prophesied to occur here as an eighth king. The eighth king or Israel is seized upon by the liars in the churches as a source of false doctrine to pollute the refining churches to the point where all becomes as the false prophet with "another gospel". Truly Israel is the one physical solution to the conundrum "and is of the seven".

However Israel is not a part of the beast "that was" or that "is not", and is only in view as part of the beast "that yet is". It is the church that becomes the synagogue of satan, not the nation of Israel as the synagogue of satan in the chruches which is the case. Israel is a secular state simply going into sin, it has no place in the kingdom of God but is as the tool of satan in the mouth of the synagogue of satan. There is no name for the little horn in the kingdom of God, "Israel" is the name of God's chosen or elect - the born again saints, not those whom would perpetuate the old covenant. - they are surely "lost".

Physical Israel is the centre of many contrivances of false doctrine by the church - particularly in the form of modern dispensationalism, the arrival of the modern state of Israel is properly seen as the "removal of the restrainer" in the verse;

2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. (KJV)

And the beast of false doctrine ridden by the image is this same "mystery of iniquity", the presence of the state of israel is the loosing of all restraint on the uptake of this false doctrine in the church. The mystery of iniquity is doctrinal and spiritual, and not physically instantiated. Then this beast is truly scarlet as the sins of OT jerusalem, and the synagogue of satan is not the jews, but the mixing of the false gospel of satan's imagination with jewish lessons the church never learnt from across the doctrine of the spiritually lukewarm.

Each of the seven mountains (churches of revelation) or the requirements of repentance in Christ's letters are enough to show that these lessons are learnt from Him, and not from the state of Israel - who is to say that it worked out for them either? (they are not in Christ and are not saved.) We should immediately follow Christ's direction, and not physical israel's since that is the very point being shown here. Such following after the law and the flesh are the mystery of iniquity at work.
