Rev. 12 And a great sign was seen in heaven, a woman arrayed with the sun, and the moon was beneath her feet, and on her head was a crown of twelve stars, and she was pregnant. And she cries out in her pains and in her agony to give birth. And another sign was seen in heaven, and look! a great fiery-colored dragon, with seven heads and ten horns and upon it's head seven diadems;........................And the dragon kept standing before the woman who was about to give birth, that, when she did give birth, it might devour her child.
Satan controls the entity that is the WBTS/Harlot. The wild beast 666 and the kings want to destroy her. God puts it into the hearts of the kings to do that as justice.
