“Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits. 10 There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time. 11 The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
From what I've read it seems common opinion that the 7 kings in the above passage from Revelations are popes? I've been searching and have found that there have been so far 265 popes so how does the 7 fit into the picture?
Popular opinion also leans toward the seven heads being the hills that surround the vatican? And the woman is the vatican or catholic church herself?
The beast is the eighth which I presume is the antichrist?
Am I wrong with any of this? Any thoughts would be appreciated, thanks.
