Babylon the great

the mother of harlots
& of
the abominations of the earth

HER RELATION TO SAINTS:

Drunk with the blood of the saints of the witnesses of Jesus

 

mystery of the WOMAN &
The BEAST EXPLAINED

(1). BEAST Rev 17:8

Was/ is not/about to come up out of the abyss ------->destruction.

Earth dwellers wonder (name not in book of life)

(2) 7 HEADS: Rev 17:9-11

7Heads = 7 mountains = 7 kings

The WOMAN (=) sits on these

 

5 fallen, 1 is, other has not yet come, & when he comes, he must remain a little while

 

Beast = 8th king = one of the 7 kings

=>destruction

10 Horns = 10 Kings

Not received a kingdom

Receive authority w/ Beast fo ONE HOUR

These wage war against the Lamb…

Lamb will overcome because He is Lord of lords & King of kings

With Him: Called, Chosen, Faithful

 

(4) JUDGMENT of the WOMAN

10 Horns + L => will hate harlot

They will make HER desolate, naked, eat flesh, & burn her up w. fire
