What was to he inflicted upon one of the heads of this beast?

Answer

"And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the
world wondered after the beast." Verse 3.
NOTE - This wound was inflicted upon the papal head of this beast when the French, in 798,
entered Rome, and took the Pope prisoner, and for a time, it seemed, abolished the Papacy. But in i8oo
another Pope was placed upon the papal throne, and the deadly wound began to be healed. Temporal
dominion was taken away from the Papacy in 1870, but nevertheless its power and influence among the
nations have been increasing since then. "In that year," says Dr. Guinness in his work "Romanism and the
Reformation," page 156, "the Papacy assumed the highest exaltation to which it could aspire, that of
infallibility." To such a position of influence over the nations is the Papacy finally to attain that just before
her complete overthrow and destruction she will say, "I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no
sorrow." Rev. 18: 7. See Isa. 47: 7-15; Rev. 17:18.
