    There's nothing that speaks of a third rising, but scripture predicts a revived Roman Empire (a second rising) that hasn't happened yet.

    Below are scriptures I believe points to Rome as the captital of this coming world empire.

    First of all scripture shows a world empire in the last days. Daniel only predicts four world empires before Christ sets up his millennial kingdom. Rome was the fourth kingdom and we have little choice but to conclude this last day world empire must be a revived Roman empire since no scripture predicts a fifth empire.

    Daniel in chapter 7 predicted four successive world empires: lion was Babylon, bear was medo-persia, leopard was Greece, and beast was Rome.

    Rev. 13:1-2 shows a reverse order, beginning with the beast then

    moving backwards it lists leopard, bear, lion. Since we know from

    history that beast represented Rome in this grouping of empires this

    is one of several passages that identify Rome as the seat of the

    beast. There are other passages.

    Rev. 17:8 states, "the beast that thou sawest was, and is not, and

    shall ascend out of the bottomless pit. . . ." The beast

    (Rome) "was." This is the Roman Empire of old. The "is not"

    represents Rome's demise when it ceased to exist. The "shall ascend

    out of the bottomless pit" shows a revived Roman Empire, and since

    the bottomless pit is the dwelling place of Satan, this shows the

    devil is the source of Rome's revival.

    I think a parallel passage is found in Rev. 13:3 where it says the

    beast's deadly wound is healed. The immediate context of the two

    previous verses mentions the four beasts: beast, leopard, bear, and

    lion which represent the four world empires. So, when the next verse

    speaks of the beast's deadly wound being healed the context is world

    empires, and I think it is a reference to the Roman empire that died

    out coming back to life.

    Many think it is a person in mind here, but since the previous verse 1s speaking about empires, this must be referring to the empire dying and coming back.

    Rev. 13:1 says this beast has seven heads and ten horns. Comparing

    Rev. 17:9 and 18 it identifies the seven heads. V.9 states, "the

    seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth." V.18

    states, "and that woman which thou sawest is that great city which

    reigns over the kings of the earth."

    We learn several things from this. The woman is the city that reigns

    over the world. And this woman (city) is situated on seven

    mountains. I believe this is the seven hills of Rome. One

    commentary I read in said John's first century audience would

    automatically understand this to be a reference to Rome, the city

    built on seven hills.

    Rev. 17:10 states, "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." When John wrote this he was living during

    the reign of the 6th Roman Emperor. That is the "one is." The "five

    are fallen" were the previous five Roman emperors. And "the other is

    not yet come" points to a future emperor, who like the others must

    also be Roman.

    The date of the book of Revelation is very iffy. They range from Nero to Domitian. I regard this as internal evidence in the book of Revelation that Nero, the 6th Roman king, was the emperor when John wrote Revelation.

    Rev. 17:12 states, "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."

    Daniel ties these 10 horns to the fourth beast which no one disputes

    is Rome. Daniel 7:17 states, "these great beasts which are

    four. . . ." Then vv.19-20 states, "then I would know the truth of

    the fourth beast, which was diverse from all the others. . . . And

    of the ten horns that were in his head. . . ."

    Again, earlier in this same chapter Daniel mentions four beasts:

    lion, bear, leopard, and beast that are well established in history

    to represent Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. This fourth

    beast (Rome) is the one with "ten horns," exactly as we see assisting

    the beast in Rev. 17:12. It is no accident we find "beast" in

    Revelation, the exact term in Daniel that represents the Roman empire.

    I see the 10 nations that assist the beast as coming from the EU.

    There is a movement within the EU to elect a strong president to

    multi-year terms that only comes from a select group of the larger EU

    nations. The reasoning is that smaller nations lack the resources to

    handle the duties of this EU leadership. 6 of those favoring this

    are France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Italy, and Great Britain. This

    may be six of the 10.
