The seven headed beast in biblical prophecy is portrayed in multiple settings and has multiple meanings, but each are true and with no contradictions of each other. God has arranged the divine book of wisdom in ways that will continue amazing us for the rest of our lives.
“This calls for a mind with understanding: The seven heads of the beast represent the seven hills where the woman rules...”
Revelation 17:9 NLT
The woman is a convergence of religions who fail to believe and teach the truth, also referred to as spiritual prostitutes, and the leader of the false religions will be the pope. He is currently attempting to unite a variety of religions, saying we all worship the same God.
The seven hills are in reference to the Vatican, it is widely known that Rome has seven hills within. The verse also indirectly implies the pope will reside as leader of the religious element of the reunified Holy Roman Empire, thus he will wield significant power within the beast’s empire.
It may surprise some people to know catholicism will have such a prominent role within the beast’s empire, but it shouldn’t be a surprise for people familiar with the Bible. Catholicism has been infiltrated by demons from the beginning, which is how the Catholic Doctrine came to be. If you want to test catholicism, to see if it holds truth, tell someone Mary is not divine, that she is just a regular Christian like the rest of us, and see what the reaction is.
They will probably be angry at you for even suggesting such a thing, because they worship her, which proves catholicism is an idolatrous religion. In addition to that, the Catholic Doctrine states there is a place called purgatory, a place where people go after death to repent of sins they committed while living. But, that is another false teaching, there is no such place, but since the Catholic Doctrine states there is such a place, Catholics lack motivation to repent while living.
“From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”
Matt 4:17 NLT
“...and I tell you again that unless you repent, you will perish, too.”
Luke 13:5 NLT
“I gave her time to repent, but she does not want to turn away from her immorality. “Therefore, I will throw her on a bed of suffering, and those who commit adultery with her will suffer greatly unless they repent and turn away from her evil deeds.”
Rev 2:21-22 NLT
“I have had one message for Jews and Greeks alike—the necessity of repenting from sin and turning to God, and of having faith in our Lord Jesus.”
Acts 20:21 NLT
“So let us stop going over the basic teachings about Christ again and again. Let us go on instead and become mature in our understanding. Surely we don’t need to start again with the fundamental importance of repenting from evil deeds and placing our faith in God.”
Hebrews 6:1 NLT
