Beast-Populace #1: The Revived Roman Empire
[πŸ˜‡, in the vision] I stand on the sand of [earth's] β€˜sea’ [of people].
I see a beast rise up out of this sea.
This [first] beast has 7 heads and 10 horns.
Upon its horns [flash] 10 crowns.
Upon its heads [lies scrawled] the β€˜name of blasphemy.’
Timeline
Note: This β€˜beast’ is not one guy.
It's a mass of political groups held together by alliances.

As is made clear in Rev.
17:15
:

This β€˜sea’ is the sea of people, the mass of Satan's worldlings.
They give birth to (and support) the beast with horns of political, financial, religious and military might:
The military-industrial-political-religious complex:
the M.I.P.R.C (pronounced MiPerk).

β€˜Name of blasphemy’ is often translated:
β€˜blasphemous names’.
