The Great Whore


Rev17: 1-8
And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show 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 I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. 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. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carried her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou saw 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.

When we read the Book of Revelation we must understand how and from what perspective it was written. We have all seen books like “Revelation made easy”. Unfortunately that is what the Christian establishment would have you think. This book was not meant for everyone to understand. Yes I know it promises a blessing to who ever shall read it, Rev.1:3; but they neglect to point out that it also says to those that keep it. This book is written in a way so as to be sealed to the spiritually blind, or immature. It contains great mysteries and power. If this power got into the hands of the wrong people, it would be like putting an atom bomb in the hands of a two year old. Heb: 5:14: “But strong meat belongs to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”

The idea that deep spiritual truth is hidden to some may not be popular, but there is much scriptural basis for this. Lk: 8:10: “And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.” We also see that timing may be a factor in understanding Gods message to us. Dan: 12:4: “But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.” (Like now).

In 1st Corinthians 12:2, Paul says he was caught up into the third heaven and in vs. 4 says: “How that he(referring to himself) was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.” Paul never left the earth, but had entered the spirit. Spiritual things can not always be translated “word for word”.When John wrote the Apocalypse, he said Rev: 1:10: “I was in the Spirit on the Lord's Day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,” If he wrote it from the stand point of being in the spirit, does it not make sense to endeavor to understand it form the spirit?

We have heard it said that we have a left side of our brain and a right side (I am not sure which is which) One is more systematic and follows a flow of information, It is structured and ordered. It is where the math is done; sees the “real world” and has to put things into categories, and relates to the material universe, it is the Law. The other side sees images and patterns. It is creative, and sees things in pictures, and cycles. This is the side that sees into the spirit. This is the side that the book of Revelation appeals to. This explains why there seems to be many fulfillments to the verses contained in it. God is creating imagery so you can spot his hand and fulfillment.Obviously much of its literal fulfillment has taken place with Rome, and Nero; But we see the same patterns like waves continue across the sands of time. Cycles that build until one final culmination. “Like travail upon women with child”With this in mind, let us look back over history. How long has Satan had his grip and been in control of this world? It has been right since the beginning in the garden. How quickly people forget. God made this whole creation for man, and man gave it over to Satan. As a result all of creation is corruptible, running down and dying (The second law of thermo-dynamics). From that moment on God has been moving us toward His final plan, His Seventh Day, to bring us into His rest. As we look at the cycles and waves, they are not all exactly alike, but we see many of the same pictures. This explains why many believers and the early church would get it wrong as to the end, and the Antichrist.

Through out History there have been many Antichrists. 1Jn:2:18: “Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.” We can start out with Pharaoh, the Babylonians, and Alexander the Great. Antiochus Epiphanies was the culmination in the Old Testament times. He offered a blood sacrifice of a pig in the Holy of Holies. He was prophesied of in Daniel. Then in New Testament times we have the first appearance in Judas; Most of the Caesars, especially those that fought against Christ, like Nero. Then here in this century many thought Adolph Hitler, was the Antichrist. Although he fulfilled much of what was needed to qualify he was apparently not yet the One. Now we are looking at the most chilling possibility in the person of George W. Busche. If we turn out to be incorrect again, the cycle will swing around again with more and more evil till “That Man of sin be revealed, The Son of Perdition”.I have given a broad look at history because I want us to see the whole picture.

Who and what is “This Great Whore”? She is an image of one ridding on the back of a beast. This beast is full of names of blasphemy or false gods. She is arrayed in wealth with Gold (significant of divine nature) and pearls (from the sea) and precious stones (from the dry land), full of the splendor of this world. We see an image of Grandeur. Like Christ her colors are Red (the color for man, blood) and Purple the color of royalty. Blue by the way is the color for God; it is the color of the heavens. Purple is the combination of blue and red. Christ was the combination of God = blue and Man= red giving us purple; The God Man and Royal King of Kings. It says she is sitting upon many waters. In verse 15, it tells us what those waters are. “The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.” It is all the people of the world that have and are being oppressed by her ridding on their back. The kings of the earth have committed fornication with her. All the kingdoms of the world and nations and empires have been in bed with their religious systems. They use each other to control the masses. By false promises like the American dream, the deceitfulness of riches and all the other lies that have been told us through the ages they have made the people drunk with her wine. Mk: 4:19: And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. Rev.17: 2. “the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”Again it is important to have this broad look at history because this image does. This beast has seven heads. Verses 9-11 read;
“The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 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. And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition."
Mountains are significant of Kingdoms; the kings mentioned are the representatives of those Kingdoms. The five that had fallen were: 1.Egypt, 2.Assyria, 3.Babylon, 4.Medo-Persia, and 5.Greece. “One is” 6. Rome. And the other had “not yet come” – 7.The American Empire. This nation may have started out benign but it is now going into perdition. It has only been around a short while as it was written. Then we see the beast that was and is not being the eighth. God says “I am that I am” Satan says “I am that I am not” This eighth is the Antichrist system that fills the whole earth. It is of the seven because it grew out of them, headed by the same kinds of Antichrists.

A few summers ago I had the privilege of taking a trip to some of the great cities of Europe. We went to London and saw the Palace of the Queen with all its might. How ironic that right in front in the park was a poor young homeless man. Then we went on to Paris; More amazing and dazzling splendor. The Louvre and Versailles full of their treasures and mixture of Christian and Pagan occult symbolism. Next stop; Rome, The Empire and the Coliseum. The Vatican with the most incredible splendor of all. You go inside and the glint of gold is everywhere. Wealth and riches beyond your wildest dreams. And as I was awe struck the Word of the Lord came to me Rev.17:6-7:
“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. And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel?”
So remarkable where the wonders of this Great Whore, that even John marveled. When the kings of France so abused the people, they rose up and cut off their heads. These blind guides in the Vatican hide behind God.All this wealth and power and massive edifices are all designed to intimidate and control people and blind them from the truth; to make the masses drunk with the wine of her delicacies. Everywhere; we saw Church after Church, Dome with Obelisk; Symbols of pagan deity worship. The Oblisk is the male symble for Horis and the Dome is the egg or womb symbol for Isis. You see the same picture right in Washington DC on the Mall, Congress on one end and the Washington Monument at the other end. This is no coincidence. When Jesus was tempted in the wilderness by the devil, Lk: 4:5-7:
“And the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, showed unto him ALL the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time (including today’s). And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine”.
Jesus didn’t disagree that it was Satan’s to give, but he knew Mt: 16:26: “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” So his answer was Lk: 4:8: “And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.”

This is all about building the Kingdoms of this world on the backs of the poor. It is about the worship of Mammon the God of this age at the cost of the blood sweat and tears of those that are simple. If Satan owned this present world and Jesus called him “the prince of this world”Jn.12:31 and Paul called him the “god of this world” and said that he “had blinded the minds of men” 2Cor:4:4 How foolish are to think that he would not have gone after our religious systems.Think about all the atrocities that have been committed through the ages in the name of Religion and Political Ideologies; All proclaiming a just and true cause; Everything from the Crusades and the Inquisitions to the fight for Democracy or Communism.

Think of the suffering, starvation and despair of the dark ages. These all made richer the money changers while the saints bleed in the streets. They kept back the word of God and taught that only the Priests were able to talk to God; Thus developing a kind of Illuminati or Illuminated class. They had a MYSTERY which they kept from the common man. People were kept in their place by the use of guilt, keeping them bound up worrying about their sexual desires; while they were committing every kind of sexual atrocities imaginable. Several Popes were known to have kept young boys and would simply burry them when they were through with them. Mt: 23:27: “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchers, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.” They are still indulging themselves in the fat and luxuries of this world.

When the new Nazi Pope was negotiated into power by George Bush, (Kings fornicating with the Whore) I would watch the Cardinals getting out of their big limos dressed in Scarlet and Purple and gold and precious stones. Then a servant would run up with an umbrella to protect His tenderness from the terrible rays of the SON. I thought to my self, “Who does she think she is? Michael Jackson?”At the time Jesus came, the Jewish hierarchy were living well and mixing there business practices with there religion. When they unearthed the home of Caiaphas the high priest, it was clear that he was a rich man. The reason the Jews rejected Christ the first time was because he didn’t come to do their bidding. (as a note, it was not the common Jews that rejected Him, many of the early church were Jews. It was the Jewish establishment.) They wanted Him to “Restore the Kingdom to Israel” or return to the status quoi and there ruling order. They didn’t really care what He was preaching or doing, as far as they were concerned He was just a nuisance. But when He messed with their money and overturned the money changers tables, they were threatened. This is when they wanted Him killed. You should all view the film called the “Money Masters”.

So who is this Great Whore of Babylon? Remember in another post I said all the religions of the world seem to have their roots in Babylon. This is why she is the Mother of Harlots. She is ALL of the organized religions of this world. She is Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, The Roman Catholic church, The right wing fundamentalist, Denominationalism and Zionists; She is the cults and Isms; She is the Secret societies and Black Arts; She is the Idols and Demon Gods from ancient times that keep coming back riding on the back of the worlds political systems. The two give power to each other. They are in bed together committing fornication. They are not flesh and blood but powers and principalities the rulers of the darkness of this world; they are spiritual wickedness in high places. Eph:6:12We now see the whole earth subdued by her and consuming the world recourses. The blind masses worshiping at the alter of consumerism putting themselves further and further into enslavement; being bound to the love of this world Lusting for Oil to drive her machines. Rv:9:2: “And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”(air pollution)I know that some will think me a crazy person after reading this. But:
  • 2Tm:1:7: “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
  • 1Cor:2:14: “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
We have come to think it is normal and the way it should be for our families to be scattered all over the place “without natural affection” to serve this Industrial Military Complex.
  • Rv: 6:10: “And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?”
  • Rv: 18:4: And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”
  • 1Pt:2:9: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light:”
