I'm of the opinion that you (that is, Sol) are on an incorrect path regarding the "ten horns" of Revelation and your linking them to the ten tribe kingdom of Israel (even if in a symbolic way). But, of course, my opinion is not always right, and is also subject to change.
I don't mean to suggest that you have actually or even deliberately misquoted me here Bobcat. Nevertheless I would never word things in exactly this manner. This is because it might only tend to add to the abundance of confusion that already exists on the subject. What I HAVE pointed out from the scriptures on the matter on previous occasions would be much better represented with the following:
The moment we begin paying closer attention to scriptural accounts like Zechariah Chapter 11 where we are helped to understand that even the PRIMARY thing that was being prophetically pictured for SPIRITUAL Israel with the ancient two and ten tribe kingdoms of Judea and Samaria respectively was the distinction that would even CONTINUE to exist between the "shepherding" and "flock" folds of Jehovah's kingdom, this is the same moment in which we begin to be in a position to grasp ADDITIONAL scriptural symbolisms that are directly CONNECTED to this phenomenon. (Zec 11:14-17) (He 8:5) (Ga 4:22-26) Compare (Lu 12:32) (Joh 10:16)
For starters, (contrary to what we are always led to understand), as opposed to being comprised strictly of natural descendants of Abraham, from the word go this flock facet of Jehovah's nation was represented also as a "VAST MIXED COMPANY" of people who ultimately not only JOINED these ones in a mass Exodus of ancient Egypt, but also formally came under the same Mosaic Law Covenant and by extension came to eventually invade and settle the "Promised land" WITH them. (Ex 12:38) Is this already beginning to sound a bit more like some of the terms we find in Revelation such as—"all the nations" or "people of all the nations"? (Re 7:9 13:7, 8) Well if not it most definitely SHOULD begin to be associated with such scriptural terms when we learn not only that this same "Samaritan" entity was ALSO represented at times with the tribe of EPHRAIM, but in turn this "stick of Joseph" ITSELF was explicitly identified as a symbolic representation of—you guessed it---"the full equivalent of NATIONS"! (Ge 48:19) (Eze 37:16-18)
The moment we come to better grasp what was actually being conveyed with these particular "typical representations" we often find in holy text as well as the fact that these somewhat distinct facets of Jehovah's nation were ALWAYS represented as "falling" into spiritual adultery or "harlotry" at different points in TIME, I'd have to insist it would soon actually become rather DIFFICULT to continue overlooking some things right here also in the Revelation account that only continue to CONFIRM this understanding. (He 8:5) (Re 14:8 18:2) What exactly am I getting at here?
Particularly with this information in mind, do we REALLY imagine it is mere coincidence that just as soon as the SHEPHERDING facet of Jehovah's nation (which is ALSO of course represented at times as a sacrificial "LAMB" as opposed to simply a "two tribe" or even "two horned" entity) is prophetically pictured here in Revelation 13:7 as "falling" or otherwise being "conquered" by the "wild beast," it is immediately thereafter represented as now a PART of this same demonic entity? (Re 13:11) Compare (Re 16:13) If we are STILL failing to grasp the deeper meanings behind this symbolic spiritual language here in accounts like Revelation, wouldn't this now become virtually impossible when we immediately now read about a SUBSEQUENT spiritual "fall" of an entity identified as "every tribe and people and tongue and nation" and then immediately come to find THEM pictured as part of a great "wild beast" that just happens to now bear "TEN horns" as opposed to 'TWO"? (Re 17:3)
Well if we are STILL at this point failing to appreciate what it is that is being conveyed in these particular "signs" of Revelation, I might personally go so far as suggesting that we actually do not WISH to understand or accept what is being conveyed in these holy writings. Yes this "ten horned" entity has already been pictured a part of this "wild beast " on PREVIOUS occasions in scriptural prophecy, but these same scriptures make it perfectly clear that there would ultimately be SEVERAL times ("SEVEN times" in the setting of the "appointed times of the nations" ALONE) in which BOTH facets of Jehovah's nation would "fall" into this spiritual unfaithfulness or even "prostitution." (Isa 1:21) (Lu 21:24) (Da 4:23, 30, 32) It would be very important nevertheless for us to also grasp the following in connection with what is being symbolized by the "ten horns" as a part of these foretold "wild beasts:"
Just as was already laid out for us in holy text LONG BEFORE Revelation in accounts like Genesis 48:19 or Exodus 12:38, there is a VERY SIGNIFICANT distinction between what is being represented by these "ten horns" when ATOP or otherwise PART OF these "wild beasts" as opposed to when they are NOT. In the foretold periods of time in which Jehovah's true sheep are NOT guilty of having fallen into spiritual "harlotry" and by contrast are recognized as in a "saved" condition by their God, there is a small but nevertheless EXTREMELY significant distinction in the way that they are identified in scriptural symbolism. (Re 7:9, 10) Yes just as spelled out for us here in Revelation Chapter 7, as opposed to being identified simply as "all the nations," when this "great crowd" of "other sheep" are once again found in a situation of having received "salvation" for genuine REPENTANCE over this spiritual "harlotry" due to taking ADVANTAGE of this "CONTINUAL sacrifice" of this "body of MANY members of the Christ," they are distinctly identified now as "OUT OF all nations, tribes, peoples and tongues." (Da 11:30-32) (1 Cor 12:12)
We want to understand that regardless of whether it be referred to as the "sixth TIME," sixth "striking of the SHEPHERD," sixth "plunge into the figurative Jordan River, " sixth spiritual "planting and HARVESTING," "sixth SEAL," "sixth TRUMPET blast" or even sixth "KING," what we are considering here in Revelation Chapter 7 among the prophesies of John around 96 CE is the sixth foretold time in the setting of the "appointed times of the nations" in which this ongoing priestly process we read about also in the early part of the first century with John the Baptist and Jesus would need to be REPEATED due to SUBSEQUENT spiritually adulterous violations of the holy kingdom covenant. (Re 11:3, 7, 11, 12) (Ge 41: 22-24) (Da 4:23) (Le 26:24) (2 Ki 5:14) (Re 6:12 9:13 17:9, 10) As the Apostle Paul pointed out in the MIDDLE of the first century, this foretold cycle or even "circuit" of events in connection with the figurative "cities of Israel" would end sometime after the "LAST trumpet" due to the fact that by this time ALL of the divinely appointed shepherds of God's nation would be comprised solely of "incorruptible and immortal" spirit beings who would no longer even be CAPABLE of violating a holy covenant between Jehovah and mankind. (1 Cor 15: 51-53) (Mt 10:23)
