The Woman That Rides The Beast Part 1:The Empire that Rules The City

A Re-examination of The Whore of Babylon(Rev 17) & the Beast (Rev. 13)

In the Book of Revelation we see in scripture where it speaks of the Whore Of Babylon & also the Beast which carries its mark adding to 666.

I have seen people try to make out the whore of Babylon is Jerusalem/Israel but also forgetting that according to the scripture it also mounts this Whore Of Babylon on the Beast, giving us the Line Upon Line & Precept Upon Precept what we are actually meant to be looking at in this Prophesy in the New Testament, to show who or what Both of these entities are that work as One.

This Re-examination on this topic, will also cover linking scriptures to the verses & things the scripture addresses.

So lets look at some Facts about the Whore of Babylon in Revelation 17:

  • She is called a Great Whore
  • Sits upon many Waters
  • Sits on a scarlet coloured beast
  • Names of Blasphemy
  • 7 heads
  • 10 horns (all which can be found in verses 1-3)

With the Whore she was:

  • Wearing Purple
  • Wearing Scarlet like the scarlet coloured beast
  • Arrayed in Gold & Gemstones
  • Was holding a Golden Cup.
  • Carried the name Mystery Babylon(found in verses 4-6)

We are then told of the Wisdom of Revelations what the 7 heads are:

  • 7 heads are mountains
  • 7 mountains linked to 7 kings
  • 8th king that come out of the 7 kings(found in verses 7-11)

Wisdom about the 10 horns:

  • they represent 10 kings(linking to crowns)
  • One Mind
  • Make War with Christ/Saints/Prophets/Apostles
  • will give power unto the beast
  • will make the whore desolate(Found in verses 12-18)

The water where the whore sits

  • people of many nations( in verse 15)

Whore is called:

  • a Great City which also reigns over the Kings of the Earth(in verse 18)

Now we move into Revelation 13 to what is shown their.

Points about the 1st Beast:

  • Rises out of the Sea
  • 7 heads
  • 10 horns
  • 10 Crowns
  • Name of Blasphemy( in Rev 13:1)

Was likened unto:

  • Leopard
  • Bear
  • Lion
  • Dragon Gave it Power
  • Wounded & Healed( in 13:2-3)

It warred with:

  • The Saints/Prophets/Apostles

We then have the appearance of a 2nd Beast:

  • which comes out of the Earth
  • it also has 2 horns( 13:11)

Likened unto:

  • Lamb
  • Spake as a Dragon.(13:11)

Actions of the 2nd beast:

  • exercises power like unto the 1st beast
  • does great wonders
  • Leads astray those on earth
  • has power to give life to the beast Image
  • Kills those who don’t Worship the beast Image(Rev 13:12-15)

2nd beast then endorses the Mark:

  • Causes many to take the beasts Name
  • Number of his Name
  • Number of the beast
  • Number of a Man
  • 666(Rev 13:16-18)

The Christadelphian Blaspemy

Your probably wondering why I would cover such a topic as this, the question is Why Not?

I have experienced & encountered meeting many Christadelphians in my time, and yes they are are cult in their own right, and to what would make me think or say that.

It comes under the Issue Of Blasphemy, they say they understand The Jewish Thought in the Time of Jesus & decide to make up Riddles about who or what Jesus was Speaking about in His Parables, appearing to make Jesus out to be a Liar.

So what would make me think that Christadelphians would Commit Blasphemy & Blasphemy of who?

so lets look to the Old Testament(Tanakh) of What it Says on the Issue Of Blasphemy:

Exo 22:28  “You must not blaspheme God or curse the ruler of your people.(NET bible)
Exo 22:28  (22:27) “You are not to curse God, and you are not to curse a leader of your people. (CJB)
Exo 22:28  You shall not revile God [the judges as His agents] or esteem lightly or curse a ruler of your people. (AMP)
Exo 22:28  “Do not revile Elohim, nor curse a ruler of your people. (The Scriptures 1998+)
Exo 22:28  You shall not revile God, nor curse the ruler of your people. (MKJV)

Lev 24:10  And the son of an Israelitish woman, whose father was an Egyptian, went out among the children of Israel: and this son of the Israelitish woman and a man of Israel strove together in the camp;
Lev 24:11  And the Israelitish woman’s son blasphemed the name of the LORD, and cursed. And they brought him unto Moses: (and his mother’s name was Shelomith, the daughter of Dibri, of the tribe of Dan:)
Lev 24:12  And they put him in ward, that the mind of the LORD might be shewed them.
Lev 24:13  And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
Lev 24:14  Bring forth him that hath cursed without the camp; and let all that heard him lay their hands upon his head, and let all the congregation stone him.
Lev 24:15  And thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, Whosoever curseth his God shall bear his sin.
Lev 24:16  And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the LORD, shall be put to death. (KJV)

Num 15:28  The cohen will make atonement before Adonai for the person who makes a mistake by sinning inadvertently; he will make atonement for him, and he will be forgiven —
Num 15:29  no matter whether he is a citizen of Isra’el or a foreigner living with them. You are to have one law for whoever it is that does something wrong by mistake.
Num 15:30  ” ‘But an individual who does something wrong intentionally, whether a citizen or a foreigner, is blaspheming Adonai. That person will be cut off from his people.
Num 15:31  Because he has had contempt for the word of Adonai and has disobeyed his command, that person will be cut off completely; his offense will remain with him.’ ” (CJB)
Num 15:28  And the priest shall make an atonement for the soul that sinneth ignorantly, when he sinneth by ignorance before the LORD, to make an atonement for him; and it shall be forgiven him.
Num 15:29  Ye shall have one law for him that sinneth through ignorance, both for him that is born among the children of Israel, and for the stranger that sojourneth among them.
Num 15:30  But the soul that doeth ought presumptuously, whether he be born in the land, or a stranger, the same reproacheth the LORD; and that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
Num 15:31  Because he hath despised the word of the LORD, and hath broken his commandment, that soul shall utterly be cut off; his iniquity shall be upon him.(KJV)

Deu 31:20  For I wyll bryng them into the lande which I sware vnto their fathers, that floweth with mylke and honye: and they shall eate, and fyll them selues, and waxe fat, and turne vnto strauge gods, and serue them, and blaspheme me, and breake my couenaunt. (Bishops)
Deu 31:20  For when I shall have brought them into the land which I sware unto their fathers, that floweth with milk and honey; and they shall have eaten and filled themselves, and waxen fat; then will they turn unto other gods, and serve them, and provoke me, and break my covenant.
Deu 31:21  And it shall come to pass, when many evils and troubles are befallen them, that this song shall testify against them as a witness; for it shall not be forgotten out of the mouths of their seed: for I know their imagination which they go about, even now, before I have brought them into the land which I sware. (KJV)

As we see here in the Issue of Blasphemy Of God, In the Exodus verse the people are shown not to Blaspheme God, in the Leviticus verse we see an example of what happens to someone who Blasphemed God, that they shall be put to death, in the Numbers verses we see the Preisthood shown that they will not do the Atonement of anyone Who Blaspheme the Name Of God, and that they will be also cut off from among the congregation of Israel, and in Deuteronomy it covers Israel when God brings them into the Land God Promised them, that should they Blaspheme God, he will bring to pass, should they go worship other gods than God of Israel & blaspheme God by breaking their Covenant with him, that He will bring or let evil come upon them, which shall testify against them for what they had done.

The Woman That Rides The Beast Part 4:A Comparison between the 1st Woman(Rev 12) & the 2nd Woman(Rev 17 &18)

The comparison between the The Woman in Rev 12 & the Whore in Rev 17 & 18, though many get caught up in the deception of false doctrine by straightly Saying the Whore is Jerusalem/Israel.

So lets look to corresponding verses in scripture linking to these Women in context in Revelation, which plays apart in understanding scriptures interpretation.

So the 1st to be covered in this will be the Whore Of Babylon found in Rev 17 & 18:

  • She sits upon many waters:Rev 17:1, Rev 18:17-20.
  • She sits upon a Scarlet Coloured Beast:Rev 12:3, Rev 17:3 & Rev 18:12
  • She is full of Names of Blasphemy:Rev 13:1,5, Rev 17:3

To show that Israel/Jerusalem isn’t the Whore Of Babylon, this is where we need the New Testament Scripture references to Babylon.

  • Mat_1:11 And Josias begat Jechonias and his brethren, about the time they were carried away to Babylon:
  • Mat_1:12 And after they were brought to Babylon, Jechonias begat Salathiel; and Salathiel begat Zorobabel;
  • Mat_1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
  • Act_7:43 Yea, ye took up the tabernacle of Moloch, and the star of your god Remphan, figures which ye made to worship them: and I will carry you away beyond Babylon.
  • 1Pe_5:13 The church that is at Babylon, elected together with you, saluteth you; and so doth Marcus my son.
  • Rev_14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
  • Rev_16:19 And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of his wrath.
  • Rev_17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
  • Rev_18:2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
  • Rev_18:10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
  • Rev_18:21 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

As we look to Matthew, Acts & Peter, their Witness to Babylon is that of Ancient Babylon made reference in the Tanakh/Old Testament, so Remnants of the Empire of Babylon was still alive in the time of the Apostles & Christ.

When we look to Johns Revelation, we see that God isn’t finished with the Babylonian Empire, which confirms that he has set aside a harsh Judgement unto the Empire Of Babylon, When Babylon Invaded The Land Of Israel, an also played its part in Dispersion of Israel an into captivity, Marcus, Peters Son, in the Land Of Captivity in Babylon, who would’ve later died under Persecution in Babylon for Preaching Christ.

So with these facts, we know Israel isn’t the Whore Of Babylon, but in turn a Victim of Babylon  including Jews/Israelis who did & didn’t believe in Christ.

Torn between Two Worlds

Broken, Torn Between Two Worlds.

One Spiritual, The Other Physical.

Yet It is the Spiritual that Created the Physical, Yet I remain Torn in a Battle, Between Good & Evil.

God the Source of All Good, Satan the creature full of Pride, fallen the Evil.

Coming into the Broken World, my Body Groans as it itself is Broken, Beyond Repair.

Because of Satan’s influence in the World, he chooses those full of Pride & Full Of Earthly Power to deliver his evil deeds upon those, whom God calls His Children.

Yet God in His Perfect Plan, will see to the End Of the Wicked, both Earthly & Spiritual.

With Satan’s influence in the earth, those who hear his call, Mock God, calling Him Unjust, Unrighteous, an Blaspheme His Power & His Deeds.

Like the Fabric of time, it is short, no matter how long we say it is, to God he is both Inside & Outside of Time, as for mankind, we live but a short space, like that of a speck of space dust, so minute you don’t even know its there.

They Mock God, saying who is he to have a Son, that’s not his right to do such a thing, in his Word, he says Kiss The Son, Lest he be angry, for he is Promised all the Nations for his Inheritance.

Your Earthly Inheritance is Worthless, but the Inheritance of the Son Of God, is Beyond what mankind can see or even repair.

Again I am Torn, Between two worlds, all I seek is God, for this temporal world i live in, will fall away, even unto oblivion, as it hands itself over to Satan’s Throne, The source of all evil, Spiritual & Physical.

God gave me His Covenant …

God gave me His Covenant with His Rainbow, these are My Colours, because Noah heeded the Lords commandments, as for Sodom & Gomorrah, God gave them their Colours of Fire & Brimstone because of their Wickedness & Iniquity, of their Homosexuality an Lusts.

This can be found in the Book of Genesis Chapter 9(the covenant Rainbow) & chapter 19(Sodom & Gomorrah Judged By God).

If you have a Problem with this, Don’t take it up with me, Take it up with God.

The Great Joy Of Reconciliation.

This week has been an interesting week, from the beginning unto its end from the 5th of September to the 10th.

Starting off with the week of the Lord mainly Showing me in dreams, and burning it in Spirit of the Importance of Reconciliation, for without Reconciliation between God & man, God could’ve chosen to Destroy Adam & Eve on the Spot when they had transgressed His Command, by the influence of the Serpent.

The Relationship between God & man would’ve become null & void.

Out of Gods Goodness, He had things set in Place to Redeem & Reconcile mankind to Himself.

Over the past couple of weeks, God has bought reconciling of Friends,who I knew that were caught up in the same Christian type cult, that I had once attended with them, until the Lord pulled me out, by a way I knew not expected.

Since the reconciling with these Brothers & Sisters in Christ, it  has bought Healing back into my life at a time when it was needed.

From hearing their own experiences of what they went through, and to hear of How the Lord also gave one of them Words of the Lord to that particular Christian type cult, which confirmed, Dreams, the Lord has Started showing me about a year ago, maybe longer.

In my last lot of dreams in relation to that Particular Christian type cult, The Lord has also covered the Area of Reconciliation with them, not just for myself, but many others, who have been Spiritually Abused or Harmed by them in Any Way.

What a wonderful thing to look forward too, Reconciliation done God’s Way, Praise the Lord.

So here are scriptures from the Word Of God, covering the topic of Reconciliation.Enjoy.
