And the wild beast that was but is not, it is also an eighth[king], but springs from the seven, and it goes off into destruction.The existing world power at the time of writing of Revelation was Rome. The five thathave fallen are:1. Egypt2. Assyria3. Babylon [Chaldeans]4. Medes and Persians5. Greeks [first Alexander the Great, then his four generals]The seventh world power is the Anglo-American power [UK and USA]Whilst the eighth that sprung from number seven is the United Nations [UN],{Formerly, League of Nations; Re 17:8}.
