Ten Horns / Seven Heads

The Bible tells us the meaning of all it's symbolism. We just need God's spirit to guide us through what it tells us. The ten horns are explained, at Rev.17:12 and Rev.5:10 ---
12 “The ten horns you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but who for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast."
Can you see from this, that horns are kings?
Kings, can also be heads (see Rev.17:9-10). 
Why two different symbols? Because there are two sorts of kings.... those who are still awaiting their dominion, and those who already reign over their dominion. You might note, that in speaking of the horns, Rev.17:12 reads that they are still awaiting their kingdom.
But at Rev.17:9-10, those kings who are described as heads of the Beast, are also described as hills/mountains. That denotes being raised up, and as taking the lead over a congregation/household, providing it's light and food (Matt.5:14-15; 24:16; Eze.36:8).
Such kings are also the ones described as "stars" and "lamps", who can also, either be faithful (Rev.1:20; Phil.2:15; Dan.12:3; Matt.5:15)...
...or not (Rev.8:8,10-11; 9:1; 12:4; Zech.4:7).
The seven "heads" of the Beast, are wicked stewards in alliance with Gentiles/drunkards (Matt.24:48-49; Prov.31:5; 17:15; Isa.28:7; Jer.51:57)...
...which Gentiles are also the ones who afford them their royal dominion. Rather than their being raised up and supported within a holy congregation (Rev.1:20);
they are supported and served by, Gentiles. God considers that unfaithful alliance, as spiritual fornication (Isa.1:2,4,7,21; 30:1; Eze.17:15; 23:22,28,29,30; Rev.17:16-17; Jer.17:5)
But then, we must also include what Rev.10:11 and 5:9-10 tells us about the identity of all the kings in Revelation.
John is told "You must prophesy *again*... about kings". This indicates that the kings prophesied about in the second part of Revelation (Rev.17:9-10,12), are the same ones prophesied to, in the first part of Revelation (Rev.1:5; 5:9-10) over which, Jesus is Lord and King (Rev.19:16; John 18:36; 17:16)
Jesus does not share a dominion with Satan (Luke 4:5,6;  1John 5:19; 2:17; Rev.21:1; Job 14:4; Dan.2:44,35), nor rule over, nor inherit, Satan's corrupt world.
After reading and digesting all these scriptures, do you see that the "horns", are anointed who have not yet acquired a dominion to reign over? Do you perceive that the ten heads, are those anointed, who have attained a dominion?
