WHITE CLOUD

Sitting on it was one like a Son of Man w sickle in hand

Revelation 17
 


Revelation 18


Revelation 19

 1/7 Bowl Angels: ''Come''

 

Judgment of great harlot

Full of blasphemous names (13:1)

7 Heads + 10 Horns (13:1)
 

HER APPEARANCE

Earth dwellers wonder (name not in book of life)

 

(2) 7 HEADS: 17:9-11

 7Heads = 7 mountains = 7 kings

 

The WOMAN (=) sits on these

Beast = 8th king = one of the 7 kings  

       =>destruction

 

(3) 10 HORNS: 17:12-14

10 Horns = 10 Kings

Not received a kingdom

Receive authority w. L ONE HOUR

ONE PURPOSE: Give power/authority>L

These wage war against the Lamb... 

Lamb will overcome bc 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

Because God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose

UNTIL WORDS OF GOD SHOULD BE FULFILLED
