THE GREAT WHORE

April 6, 2012

Revelation chapter seventeen opens with an invitation to John by one of the vial judgment angels to witness the judgment of the great whore.

At first this great whore is seated on the waters and then on a beast. The great whore is symbolic of the unfaithful, worldwide, religious system and is characterized by the apostasy which will be operating during the tribulation. This system encompassed many false religions. Also this religious system will be supported by: people of various languages, nations, leaders, kings and finally by the Antichrist for a short period. This system will be influential in reaching people from every walk of life.

The whore’s forehead has the name written, “Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother of Harlots and The Abomination of the Earth.” which depicts her position of prominence, that which she produces, and her interaction and contamination of those with whom she in involved.

Her manner of dress exudes wealth and power. This woman is skilled in enticing, and seducing men of all socio-economics status and they revel in the pleasures they receive from her. In her hand is a filled golden cup which represents the idolatry and wickedness of those that partook of her substance.

History reveals that down through the centuries she has gorged herself on the blood of believers whom she persecuted and martyred. For this God will recompense her.

John became perplexed by this woman until the angel explained what he had seen. Like John there are times when we do not understand what we see and hear, and it takes a revelation from God to provide us with insight.  The book of Revelation can be a difficult book to understand, however, as I continue to pray over it I find myself understanding it more and more. Thank God for the wisdom which He gives to those that ask Him.

    I find myself struggling with the ways I see the enemy so able to attract and seduce so many today. To think of the evil powers that will be unleashed during that time sounds horrific to me. Thank you Shepherd Mother for divulging the last days or rather the time tribulation because it helps me remember the fight for our children is more than worth it! I look forward to each and every post!!!
