Ten Horns Revealed
Rick was close enough that we will just list the ten. One way to interpret this is that the ten divisions of the world are the ten horns and the ten divisions of religions are the ten crowns. The churches and temples are like crowns upon the land.
Note that the division of the world is more along the lines of consciousness than strictly on boundaries.
The Ten Horns:
(1) North America
(2) Central and South America
(3) The United Kingdom—Includes Australia & New Zealand
(5) Russia and neighboring countries
(8) China and Taiwan
(9) Japan and Korea
(10) The Middle East.
The Ten Religions or crowns are:
(1) The Roman Catholic Church
(2) The Eastern Orthodox Church
(3) The Protestant religions Includes the Mormons even though they claim not to be protesting.
Atheism and the New Age are not religions in the Piscean sense. For instance, they have no churches or temples and what religion there is among New Agers is often closely aligned with Buddhism.
These ten religions account for about 99% of the church afﬁliations in the entire world.
Thus we have then ten horns and ten crowns who have given life to the beast even in our modern times.
Now for one more question and we will be done with verse one!
We are told that on his heads are the names of blasphemy. The King James says “name” but most modern versions correctly translate this as “names.”
What are the blasphemous names on the heads of the beast?

Finding the Beast
I would like to point us in the right direction in looking for the beast here. Because all the religions have told us that this beast will surface at the end of time and be so evil that Hitler will look like Snow White. We tend to look at the bad things going on around us and ﬁgure that must be because of the beast.
The power of the beast is much subtler than that and sometimes when the power of the beast is diminished things will seem to get worse.
For instance: When The Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall fell, the power of the beast (unquestioned authority) was greatly diminished. Because the power of the beast was so strong there before the fall, the power of decision was diminished and the power of the people to do either good or evil was low.
But when the people were granted the power to question the Beast and the power of freedom was greater, crime and many negative things actually increased. This is a normal result of an increase in freedom. An increase of freedom brings an increase of both good and evil for a period of time, but then as people solve their problems the evil is brought under control.
Believe me the US Constitution was not brought about by sitting around and talking about peaceful things. The friction was so great that they almost came to blows and some thought nothing could ever come out of so much ﬁghting.
What is more evil than crime, immorality, corruption, bickering etc. is the controlling use of subtle authority that removes our power of Decision so we do not even recognize the enemy and no longer “know good and evil.”
So in looking for the beast in Politics or anything else we do not look at all the normal things that infuriate us about it, but we look at where the control is.
What could a good conservative or liberal do to help the country that would bring the wrath of his party down on him?

“…One way to interpret this is that the ten divisions of the world are the ten horns and the ten divisions of religions are the ten crowns. The churches and temples are like crowns upon the land.”
“And now a quote from The Immortal (page 234): ‘So did Jesus or Joshua as you call him live the 1000 lives?” “At least that many,” said John. “I indicated this in my Book of Revelations Chapter 19 verse 12. I stated that on the head of Christ were many crowns. Tell me: how do you suppose Christ received many crowns when he is only recorded as living to the age of 33?” “Could the many crowns have something to do with many lifetimes?” I asked. “Correct,” he said. “Each crown here represents a life where a great victory was achieved…’
“J.J.’s revelation on the symbolic meaning of the ten crowns on the beast in Chapter 13 verse 1 from the Book of Revelations does not seem to mesh with Chapter 19 verse 12, which is revealed in The Immortal, on page 234.”
A crown represents an achievement or victory. The crowns on the head of Jesus represents past lives where there was great achievement.
However in the eyes of those who are deceived by the beast the churches themselves are more important than the teachings of the great men who founded them and represent crowns of achievement and glory to them. In addition remember that there are several levels of interpretation to each symbol in this book.
