We are counseled: “Let all who would understand the meaning of these things read the eleventh chapter of Revelation. Read every verse, and learn the things that are yet to take place in the cities. Read also the scenes portrayed in the eighteenth chapter of the same book.” – E. G. White, Last Day Events, p. 95 (15MR 18, May 10, 1906).
France’s Place in Prophecy. The beast of chapter 13 and 17 had ten horns each. France was: one of the ten toes of the great image shown to Nebuchadnezzar in a dream recorded in Daniel 2; one of the ten parts of the Western Roman Empire; one of the ten horns of the fourth terrible and exceedingly strong beast of Daniel 7: 7; one of the ten horns of the red dragon of Rev. 12: 3. In verse 9 this dragon is identified as “that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan.” “The dragon is said to be Satan; he it was that moved upon Herod to put the Savior to death. But the chief agent of Satan in making war upon Christ and His people during the first centuries of the Christian Era, was the Roman empire, in which paganism was the prevailing religion.
