RE: I will give you the key to understanding end times Bible prophecy
The first Beast is clearly Rome. The 7 heads represent seven kings. The second Beast is itself one of the heads. Revelation tells us that 4 kings have already existed, the fifth existed at the time of the writing (it was this king who dies), then there would be two more kings. Finally the king who was mortally wounded would come back alive. Armed with this knowledge we know that the Beast is none other than Caesar Nero. The kings of Rome were:

1) Augustus (27 BC-14AD)
2) Tiberius (14-37 AD)
3) Caligula (37-41)
4) Claudius (41-54)
5) Nero (54-68)
6) Galba (68-69)
7) Otho (69)

Since the prophecy goes wrong after the reign of Otho the book must have been written no later than 69 AD. The number of the Beast in the oldest copies of the Bible is 616. When you add up Nero's name (Greek letters corresponded to numerals) you get 616. The author of the book apparently is ignorant of the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD. Revelation was most likely a Jewish work written in 68 or 69 AD and then Christianized during the reign of Domitian. It was describing then current events and was then largely forgotten because the prophecies turned out to be false.
