Leaving 10 of everything except where the three had been plucked from. Are you claiming there are two beast like this beast out of the sea? who had the ten horns and ten crowns? Can you not see these are the southern and northern kingdoms? The one beast with the ten horns and crowns is the northern kingdom Israel. The other beast with the two horns is the southern kingdom with the two horns of Judah and Benjamin.
The two beasts of Rev are not the 12 tribes of Israel. The horns of the first beast are kings and kingdoms but the horns of the second beast are not. It even says the ten kingdoms do not have any kingdoms until the first beast comes to power for a short time. That eliminates any preexisting kingdoms and none of the 12 tribes are kingdoms like they once were anyways. Jew that reject Christ will follow the beast and it's kingdoms, and Jews that are Christians will not.
