Pamphlet 1900 Rev. kc 45-2

It is time to wake up to the reality of churchianity!

Rev. 17:1
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:
This will be easy on our part because the angel is going to show us the judgment! I believe that's called a revelation.

By the way, here's Strong's definition of "whore". It is from where we get the English word "porno".

porne, por'-nay, Greek 4204; feminine of Greek 4205 (pornos); a strumpet; figurative an idolater :- harlot, whore.
Also when we get to verse 15 we'll be told exactly what the "waters" are, just like we were told what stars were in chapter one.
So let's peek ahead: Rev. 17:15 "And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. "No guesswork needed here, is there?

Now, looks who's has been sleeping with this whore?

[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.
Oh wow! She's slept with just about everyone. She must be a real doll!

Now the angel makes good his word and takes John in the spirit to the desolate place, even the place of the desolator, and shows him a PICTURE!

[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.
What do we SEE? A "woman" sitting upon a "scarlet coloured" beast, full of the names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

Hey, we know who the "scarlet coloured beast" is. He's the "Red Dragon" of Rev. 12:3 & 13:1. It is Satan and his power structure. We've identified these 7 heads and 10 horns before! Now, if we just knew who this woman was! (Let's scan the rest of the chapter and see if we are told who the "woman" is, like we were told what the "waters" were). BINGO! Don't you just love it?

Rev. 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Now where does Satan set up his headquarters when he's cast out of heaven in Rev. 12:7-9? We know that from chapter 11. It's where he sits in the temple with his angels! It is Jerusalem, where also our Lord was crucified, and where the two witnesses shall be killed.
Rev. 11:8
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
It is "spiritually" called Sodom and Egypt which "spiritually" means Idolatry and Oppression. It's the city of Jerusalem! That's the great city!

Let's return to Rev. 17 and learn more about this woman.

Rev. 17:4 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:
Wow! This woman is "dressed to kill". She's clothed with Royal Colors (religion) and decked with enormous wealth and she has a "cup" in her hand. I'll bet she gives each and everyone of her "lovers" a drink from that cup!

What do you think? I can just see it now. This beautiful "Queen" flashes those beautiful eyelashes and cuddles up real close and says "Here honey, this is for you, you sexy thing you!" GULP!

Ooooh! Did you see what was in that cup? I don't even want to describe it! Yeeeech!

You know what? We've seen this "golden cup" before. Not only that we've read of the "earth being made drunk with her wine", too! Have you read the entire Bible!

Imagine how little we'd know if just ran around with half the book, like just the New Testament, and said "Just believe, little ones, and you'll be safe. Why don't you know, you're going to fly away into a place of safety (the ushers will now pass the collection plate as we listen to the beautiful special music)."

So where did this golden cup come from?

Let's read Jeremiah chapter 51 and find out. Here's verses 6 & 7:

Jeremiah 51:6
Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD'S vengeance; He will render unto her a recompence.
The judgment of the great whore! The Day of Vengeance of the LORD!
[7] Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.
BABYLON! So you see, the beautiful woman arrayed in Royalty holds the cup of Babylon from which the earth has been made drunken! False religion!
The nations are confused!

Again, "confusion" is what Babylon means. Here's Strong's definition of Babylon:

Babel, baw-bel', Hebrew 894; from Hebrew 1101 (balal); confusion; Babel (i.e. Babylon), including Babylonia and the Babylonian empire :- Babel, Babylon.
So Babylon means "confusion" and Satan has so confounded the world's religions, including main stream Christianity though the traditions of men, that the world cannot see the pure water, the truth, of the Word of God. The nations indeed are mad! And their peoples do not have "eyes to see" for they are blinded by traditions and have all sipped from her cup. She looks so religious and good and right and holy. She is arrayed so beautifully in her robes and ornaments. But she is a WHORE! And the people don't know it. They are spiritually drunken! Her cup is filled with filthiness! It is time to wake up to the reality of churchianity!

Here now is the woman's official title shown to us by the angel:

False religion!
The nations are confused!
Including most of Christianity!

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
