~ The UN/USA now temporarily sits upon the Scarlet Beast [the EU ], and later, the Roman Catholic Church [the RCC], the Woman (Mystery Babylon) [M-B] also temporarily sits upon the Scarlet Beast [the revived Roman Empire political system (the emerging European Union political system [the EU ] ) ].  10 kings shall hate the whore (Mystery Babylon), and burn her [M-B] with fire (the judgment of the great whore [M-B] ).

~ A recent  Sea Beast prophecy, says that the Sea Beast is also the Pope, perhaps the next Pope.

~ It is possible that the deadly wound by a sword that 1 of the 7 heads of the Sea Beast receives (in Rev 13:3, Rev 13:12, Rev 13:14), is received by the Pope, and that the wound occurs when Mystery Babylon (the Roman Catholic Church) [the RCC] is judged (burned with fire (Rev 17:16) by 10 kings that hate her).

~ The Sea Beast's deadly wound is healed (in Rev 13:3), and the world wondered after the Sea Beast [antichrist [ac], Pope].

~ We would thereby conclude that the Sea Beast [antichrist [ac], Pope] (with Satan's power) no longer needs the Roman Catholic Church, nor Catholicism, and thus permits the 10 kings to burn her [M-B] with fire.

~ Thus the Sea Beast [antichrist [ac], Pope] is given the power (by Satan (in Rev 13:7)) to make war with the saints (initiated by Satan in Rev 12:17).

~ The 10 kings that burn Mystery Babylon [M-B] with fire, later agree to give their kingdom to the [scarlet] beast [EU] (in Rev 17:17, Rev 17:13), until the words of God shall be fulfilled (in Rev 17:17, Rev 17:14).

~ Mystery Babylon is introduced

Rev 17:1  And there came one of the seven [ 7 ] angels which had the seven [ 7 ] vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore [M-B] that sitteth upon many waters:

Rev 17:2  With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her [M-B's] fornication.   ^

Rev 17:3  So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman [M-B] sit upon a scarlet coloured beast [EU], [a beast] full of names of blasphemy, having seven [ 7 ] heads and ten [ 10 ] horns [see Rev 12:3 ].  

Rev 17:4  And the woman [M-B] was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her [M-B's] fornication:  

Rev 17:5  And upon her [M-B] forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS [which have broken away from the RCC, but continue with minor changes] AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.  

Rev 17:6  And I saw the woman [M-B] drunken with the blood of the saints [Christians worldwide], and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her [M-B], I wondered with great admiration. 

Rev 17:7  Rev 17:7  And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel?  I will tell thee the mystery of the woman [M-B], and of the [scarlet] beast [EU] that carrieth her [M-B], [the beast [EU]] which hath the seven [ 7 ] heads and ten [ 10 ] horns.

Rev 17:8  The [scarlet] beast [EU?] that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition [to his destruction, see Rev 19:19-21 ] [similar to Rev 17:11 below]:    and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in [have been blotted out of [see Rev 3:5 ] ] the book of life [,] from the foundation of the world, when they behold the [scarlet] beast [EU?] that was [previous one world governments], and is not, and yet is [today's emerging one world government].  [see Rev 11:7 ]

[ The subject of this verse is the [scarlet] beast, which includes all of the one world governments (not just the Roman Empire).  Therefore, it would read ... the [scarlet] beast that was [all 6 previous one world governments, head #1 through head #6, including the ancient Roman Empire, which was head #6, see Beasts of Rev & Dan ], and is not [there has been no one world government for hundreds of years], and yet is [today's currently emerging one world government, head#7, which can take on any form, and is not limited to something we call the revived Roman Empire, the EU ].  [see more observations ]   ^

Rev 17:9  And here is the mind which hath wisdom.  The seven [ 7 ] heads are seven [ 7 ] mountains [the 7 hills of Rome?, the Vatican?] [see Rev 12:3 ], on which the woman [M-B] sitteth.
[ The woman (M-B) sits on the scarlet beast (the revived Roman Empire political system, the EU ) ]

~ Traditional explanation:  The scarlet beast is frequently thought to be the revived Roman Empire political system (the newly formed European Union (the EU)), which consists of the same nations that made up the ancient Roman Empire.  The ancient Roman Empire (the scarlet beast that was) and has been dead for almost 2,000 years (and is not), and has now come together again as the revived Roman Empire (the EU) (and yet is (Rev 17:8 ...behold the [scarlet] beast [EU] that was, and is not, and yet is.)).  

Rev 17:10  And there are seven [ 7 ] kings [of the 7 one world governments]: five [ 5 ] are fallen, and one [ 1 ] is [king of the ancient Roman Empire (#6), at the time John wrote this], and the other is not yet come [king of today's emerging one world government (#7)]; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.  

Rev 17:11  And the [scarlet] beast [EU] that was, and is not, even he is the eighth [the scarlet beast includes a king #8, likely the Antichrist], and is of the seven [ 7 ] [king #8, likely the Antichrist, takes over today's emerging one world government (#7)], and goeth into perdition [to his destruction, see Rev19:19-21 ] [similar to Rev 17:8 above].  

Rev 17:12  And the ten [ 10 ] horns which thou sawest are ten [ 10 ] kings [see Rev 12:3 ], which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the [scarlet] beast [EU].  

Rev 17:13  These [10 kings] have one mind [New World Order?], and shall give their power and strength unto the [scarlet] beast [EU].  

Rev 17:14  These [10 kings] shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb [Christ] shall overcome them [overcome the 10 kings, at Armageddon [Megiddo]]: for he [Christ] is Lord of lords, and King of kings:   and they [the saints] that are with him [the Lamb, Christ ] are called, and chosen, and faithful [ Christians ]. [see Rev 19:19 Rev 20:4 ]  

Rev 17:15  And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore [M-B] sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues [languages].  

Rev 17:16  And the ten [ 10 ] horns [10 kings] which thou sawest upon the [scarlet] beast [EU], these [10 kings] shall hate the whore [the woman, Mystery Babylon] [M-B], and [these 10 kings] shall make her [M-B] desolate and naked, and [these 10 kings] shall eat her flesh, and burn her [M-B] with fire [nuclear attack?].  

Rev 17:17  For God hath put in their [the 10 king's] hearts to fulfil his [God's] will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the [scarlet] beast [EU], until the words of God shall be fulfilled.  

Rev 17:18  And the woman [M-B] which thou sawest is that great city [Rome, the Vatican], which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
