WHO ARE THE "TEN HORNS?"
"And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings. Daniel 7:24

A BEAST WITH TEN HORNS
"I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things." Daniel 7:7,8

Bible Prophecy repeatedly portrays 10 Kings, kingdoms or 10 Endtime powers, as "10 horns!"
These 10 horns grow out of the last un-contested absolute Empire the "First World" has known; the Roman Empire, portrayed in the Bible as a fierce beast!
Most Bible scholars believe these to be 10 Endtime Nations that will form the nucleus of, and lead the coming "One World Government" under the Antichrist.
Many believe these 10 horns to be 10 nations of the EEC or the European Union, as the feet grow out of the Roman legs! Others think they may be the 10 members of the Security Council of the United Nations which will most likely become the World's governing body! Maybe they will be both? Time will tell!


A 7-HEADED BEAST WITH 10 HORNS
In the Book of Revelation a 7 headed Beast and Dragon is featured, both of whom have ten horns on the seventh head.

"The Beast's" seventh head is the last World Empire this World will know: the Antichrist One World Order that is now arising in our time!
It will reign for seven years and will virtually be a revival of the old Roman Empire.
Its ten horns may grow up out of the area once held by the former Roman Empire--Europe! That's why many scholars believe these 10 will be European Nations!
Not only in Revelation 17, a group of European powers or Kingdoms or Kings of the Endtime feature as ten horns, but also in chapters Revelation 12, 13. They are also symbolised as ten toes of the image or statue of the history of Man, in
Daniels vision of Daniel Chapter 2. Daniel 2:44: "And in the days of these kings (the ten toes of the feet) shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever."

Then, in Daniel 7, 10 horns grow up out of the 4th Beast, also representing the Roman Empire; a modern update of it. In that chapter a little horn--the Antichrist--grows up after them, and subdues 3 of these 10 horns.

THE BIBLE ON THE TEN HORNS
"
After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.
I considered the horns, and, behold, there came up among them another little horn, before whom there were three of the first horns plucked up by the roots: and, behold, in this horn were eyes like the eyes of man, and a mouth speaking great things."
Daniel 7:7,8
"[I wished to know]…of the ten horns that were in his head, and [of] the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even [of] that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look [was] more stout than his fellows. Daniel 7:20
"And the ten horns out of this kingdom [are] ten kings [that] shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.
Daniel 7:24
And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
Revelation 12:3
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Revelation 13:1
3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
7 And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and ten horns.
12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.
16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. "
Revelation 17:3,7,12,16
