The Great Whore

After the seven plagues were administered upon the earth, in direction from God to the angels, one of the angels spoke to John concerning the great whore. He said to him, 1“come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and” (Revelation 17:1-3) this is what he saw:

  1. The woman sat upon a scarlet beast. There were names of blaphemy upon this beast. This beast had seven heads and ten horns.
    1“I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.” (Revelation 17:3)
  2. The woman dressed in purple and scarlet. She was also very rich, being arrayed in precious stones of all kinds. In her hands is a cup, that is full of her abominations before God. It also represents the filthiness of her life, because of her fornications.
    1“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.” (Revelation 17:4)
  3. On the woman’s head was written “Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.”
    1“And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.” (Revelation 17:5)
  4. This same woman was drunk with the blood of the saints of God. Many Christians were martyred because of her.
    1“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” (Revelation 17:6)

In this vision, John could see that judgement was poured out upon this woman in purple and scarlet, of which sat upon a scarlet beast. She was full of blasphemies, while being arrayed in gold, precious stones, pearls and a golden cup. But the worst part of it, is this woman was the mother of harlots and also known for many of the killings of the Christians on earth. Their blood is upon her hands. However, from this description of the great whore, of which sat on many waters, we can only speculate what this all means. Fortunately, the angel made it even more clear to John, as to what this all represents. He said, “and the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.” (Revelation 17:7) Just as Jesus described the meaning of His parables, the angel did the same. And below is what is described to John in detail:

  1. The beast came from the bottomless pit. Those admire it and are a part of it, are not in the book of life.
    1“The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.” (Revelation 17:8)
  2. The Seven heads are seven mountains, where the woman sits.
    1“And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.” (Revelation 17:9)
  3. There are seven kings, five have died and one is currently in place now. The seventh has kind has not come yet.
    1“And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.” (Revelation 17:10)
  4. The eighth beast is from the seventh beast, whom had already passed on into a place of eternal punishment by God.
    1“And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.” (Revelation 17:11)
  5. The ten horns are ten kings, which have no kingdom, but have power as king from the beast. They are of one mind and give their allegiance to the beast. They make war with Jesus and His saints, but He will overcome them. Those that stick with the Lord are His chosen people.
    1“And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” (Revelation 17:12-14)
  6. The many waters are people of all nations that sit in line with their faith with the whore.
    1“And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” (Revelation 17:15)
  7. The ten horns upon the beast or ten kings that give power to the beast, these same people hate the whore and fight against her until she is dead and the kingdom is given entirely to the beast.
    1“And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.” (Revelation 17:16,17)
  8. The angel says the woman is that great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.
    1“And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.” (Revelation 17:18)

From what we gather here, there are many things that God makes known to us. For one, we know that this woman is a place that is surrounded by seven mountains. The woman is also called that great city and reigns over the kings of this earth. So far we can conclude that this place is Rome, Italy. For it is surrounded by seven mountains or hills. Inside of Rome is the Vatican City, of which the Popes have had great influence over the kings of this earth for centuries. The angels also said that there are people of all nations that believe the same way, of which is the Roman Catholic church. It is also made known to us that the church is very rich and arrayed in scarlet and purple. With this being said, simply look up what the pope and his bishops often where and you will find purple apparel. Where others often where scarlet robes. They have also been involved with many sex scandals over the years and therefore, this is in line with them being filthy because of their fornications. And the saddest part is, is that they have been involved with persecuting Christians over the years, even to their own death. And because of these things God ‘s wrath is upon this false church and religion. To put this plainly, they are called, 1“Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.” (Revelation 17:5)

May this open your eyes to the truth of God and anyone that is part of the Catholic Church to leave it, starting today. Jesus is waiting to heal their lives and lead them away from the darkness and into His marvelous light. They may not see how far gone they are now, but when the love of Jesus flows in their lives, they will finally know what they have been missing out on. Truly, this message does not cover the other things wrong with the Catholic church, but by leaving it behind, other things like idol worship, along with praying to Mary and angels will stop, as God only deserves our worship. This will happen because what God says will become truth and not what people have said about Him over the centuries. May every person that has faith in Christ also have a desire to search the scriptures and be willing to change their thoughts and desires according to God’s will. I know that as we give ourselves over to Jesus, even our beliefs are formed according to His Word. Then, our actions also become in line with His good works. This is so important, when it comes to our walk with Christ. We need to always be seeking Jesus first, before anything else in life. Otherwise, we will be more app to choose what is wrong and not even realize it. This chapter about the whore of the earth or the Catholic church has truly been eye opening to me and I pray for many others also. And this could only have happened since my thoughts are upon the Lord, and therefore His mysteries were unfolded upon me. God bless you all.

Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people will be drawn to what Your Words have said in scripture and are still teaching us each day, as we read them. I know that as we read the Bible daily, will we understand Your thoughts and desires towards mankind. We will also learn how to walk in Your light and not be deceived by the things of this world. Even what we have been taught over the centuries can be unlearned as the Holy Spirit teaches us the truth. I know how much better it is to be led by You and not man, for Your ways lead to eternal life and nobody else can do this. No doctrine of men will ever lead me to know You better, but only detract from knowing You and lead me on the path of destruction. I never want anything that adds to or removes from Your words to be a part of my faith in You, oh God. So may my worship, that I give to You always be pleasing in Your sight. I pray that I will always offer the best sacrifices and offerings to Your great Name. Help me to understand what is wrong., that I may fight against it and not join in. I know that I cannot win the battle over Satan without You in my life. I need You to strengthen me daily as I go walk through this life, as I cannot go through it on my own and be successfuly. With clarity of mind, which You give, I will see the battle that is waging before me and fight for Your cause for victory. I know that this means giving up my own thoughts and beliefs for Your cause, but I know it is important. If I am ever out of line with Your will, please correct me and pierce my heart, that I may repent and come back into Your loving arms once again. It is Your ways that I am for, so lead me every hour. I need You Lord. Help me along the way. You are my Father and my great God, whom I serve. I love You. Amen.
