“And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.”
King James Version (KJV)

Revelation 17:10 is all about Papacy. Seven kings are 7 generic names comes after 1798, ie Pius, Leo, Gregory, Benedict, John, Paul, John & Paul. Protestant church fathers always proclaimed that papacy is antichrist system bearing the number 666.All popes are numbered. Thus in the generic name of pius 12 popes reigned and its total is 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9/+10+11+12=78.Like wise Leo- 13 popes =91, gregory 16popes=136, benedict 14 popes =105, john 21 popes =231, paul 6 popes=21, john paul 2 popes=3. And altogether the count is 665 with john paul ii. 8th was benedict 16 and then count became 665+16=681.Benedict resigned and the count returned to 681- 16 = 665. Francis is a new papal name so count is 1.Thus his total count is 665+1=666. From these above we can see that john paul reigned for a short space. Generic count completed by death (fall)of the pope. Rev. 17 :11- And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eight, and is of the seven, and goeth in to perdition. And the eight is pope francis. Catholic bishop st malachy's prophecy confirm this. Francis pope is petrus romanus. The malachy prophecy also predicts that our Lord Jesus will return in that time of his reign. So our Lord Jesus is coming very very soon. Much sooner than we think. Popes are kings because they rule the kingdom of vatican. Beast is referred as political &religious head. Napoleon captured pope pius during 1798 and papacy wounded by sword. Papacy reigned from AD- 538 to 1798 continuously for 1260years.

The seven kings represent seven consecutive world empires: Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Mede Persia, Greece, Rome, and Britain.

As that is about the time of the end when the papal power will get their last time action, I am thinking that the seven kings is the king of Vatican City State since 1929 after they get their sit again through the Lateran Treaty, on 11th February 1929. Since that time the Vatican City State Monarch has had 7 popes/kings up to the present time. It means we are approaching to the end time of the world.
