Revelation 17 Bible Study Reading

And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:

2 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.

John is being shown what will happen to the great whore that sits upon many waters. This great whore sits and rules over many people, and it is with this great whore that the kings and rulers of the earth have fornicated with. When the rulers fornicate with the great whore, the citizens of the earth have to participate with the great whore; and by their participation they have been made drunk with her wine. This is her doctrine and ways.

3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

Here comes the beast, and now the woman comes in riding upon the beast with seven heads and ten horns. Once again, in the book of Daniel (chapter 7 and 8) it is explained who the seven heads and ten horns are. In short, the seven heads are the Gentile world rules, beginning with Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome (Greece had four rules and counted as four of the heads). The ten horns are the ten dominant nations presiding over the European Union.

4 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:

Although Europe rule is one of prestige, wealth, and splendor, within she is filthy, abominable, and full of fornication.

5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.

6 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.

What is written on her forehead represents what the great whore thinks about herself. She’s a mystery and wants to be that to the public (and we love a great mystery). She is Babylon the Great (she is a composite of all Babylon beginning with Nebuchadnezzar). She is the Mother of Harlots. “Woman” in the Bible usually refers to church, so she is the “Mother Church” harlot, and the abomination of the earth. This woman, this great whore is a huge organization in the earth and she has killed saints, made martyrs of Jesus and has been involved with many evil acts, yet she is dressed like a beautiful person.

Revelation 17

She was so beautiful, John admired after her when he was being shown the vision. Allow your mind to take a trip with me a moment… imagine, a gorgeous woman… All the men have been watching her when she parked her BMW outside. They all watched her with her red Prada pumps step towards the door. They all rush to the door to open it for her; they all wonder at her. She comes in and hands one lucky man an envelop and walks out. You can see all the men’s heads turn like they are at a tennis match.

She exits the door and hops back into her BMW and drives off. All the men turn to the one man and collectively ask, “is that your wife or girlfriend.” He replies “heck no, you can go see her at “Magic City.” And you can rent her for the night, she is expensive, $10,000 a night.” The great whore is like that; an expensive harlot because she is the Mother Harlot, but she walks around like a virgin pure woman.

7 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.

The woman rides the beast, indicating she is in more control than the beast.

8 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.

If you found or find yourself wondering after this beast, your name is not written in the book of life. GET IT TOGETHER! It is that important that you stop wondering after harlots, and begin to wonder after the real wife of the Most High, the real Church that began in the wilderness.

9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

Let’s get a bit of wisdom out of here, the seven heads are seven mountains that the woman is located and rules from. Geographically, there is one prominent location on the earth that has a large organization on it where they literally sit on seven mountains or hills. The seven hills or mountains are in Rome and you can finish the math on the large organization (church) that is in the midst of Rome.

10 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.

In our generation, we are waiting on this last final king, and when he appears we can pretty much turn on our countdown.

11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

12 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.

This is why we conclude the ten horns are the ten leading nations of the EU. They don’t have a kingdom because they have conceded power to the collective whole of Western Europe, but they will have power as kings, especially during the great tribulation.

13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

14 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.

They will be so powerful, they will attempt to make war with the Creator and unfortunately for them, this is where the fun ends, this is where the run ends. This is where they meet their Maker.

15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

As mentioned earlier, the great whore sits and rules over many people, nations, and languages.

16 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.

Why do the ten horns turn against the whore and hate her and move to make her desolate and naked? It is because the great whore has been lying and perpetrating as the Church, but has been filling in her own agenda to destroy the world and turn as many souls from the Almighty God as possible.

She has souped up all the world’s money in the name of the Lord and caused the world to fight against its’ own Creator. We have scripture with Jeremiah telling what he heard the Gentiles (Europeans) will say once the Jesus is back on the earth in Jerusalem.

Jeremiah Chapter 16

19 O Lord, my strength, and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of affliction, the Gentiles shall come unto thee from the ends of the earth, and shall say, Surely our fathers have inherited lies, vanity, and things wherein there is no profit.

20 Shall a man make gods unto himself, and they are no gods?

21 Therefore, behold, I will this once cause them to know, I will cause them to know mine hand and my might; and they shall know that my name is The Lord.

The Gentiles will come up and confess to Jesus that they have inherited lies, vanity, and things where there is no profit. They will confess they made gods that were no gods, and the lies came from the great whore. This is why the ten horns looked to destroy the whore because they will realize this when it is too late.

Return to Revelation 17

17 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.

18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

Until then, the great whore is reigning over the kings of the earth. This great whore organization sees fit in their mind that the kings of the earth answer to her, the so-called and so-assumed priests of God.
