Whore of Babylon

The book of Revelation Chapters 17 and 18  describe the Whore of Babylon.

She is first introduced as the “Great Harlot who sits on many waters.” The kings of the earth have committed fornication with her.  The inhabitants were made drunk with the wine of her fornication. She sits on top of a scarlet beast filled with the names of blasphemy. It has seven heads and ten horns.

Simply what does the Whore of Babylon of Revelation 17 & 18 represent?

.The Whore of Babylon represents false religion, for religion and its beliefs seduce men and women from the true God of the Bible and embrace false teachings. The beast reprents the various world empires.  Its kings and emporers united with the gods claiming to be the sons of the gods. Hence committing fornication with her by uniting with her.  Wine represents teachings, therefore the inhabitants become drunk with the wine or teachings from this union.

The Whore of Babylon is described in Revelation 17 and 18.

She has a name written on  her forehead, Mystery Babylon The Great, The Mother of Harlots and of the Abominations of the earth. She wears purple and scarlet.  Additionally she is decked in gold, precious stones and pearls.  She holds a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.  Each aspect of the Whore symbolizes spiritual deceptions. She also provides an overview of history while providing a forecast of what will come during the Tribulation.

The Whore sits on seven hills and the Bible refers to her as a City

The seven hills are the hills of Rome. The city is Rome. Furthermore you will want to read the areticles below for the many details of why the City is in fact Rome.

The Whore first appears in Zechariah Chapter 5

The Whore of Babylon first appears as the woman in the basket in Zechariah 5.  God names her Wickedness.   We also see in the passage a prediction of her home that you can read about in one of the links below. Not to mention the Israelites worship her. We read an account of this worship in Jeremiah 44.

The Whore is Drunk with the blood of the Saints

A key to the Whore’s identity is that she has martyred the Saints. In addition, She is also drunk with the blood of the Saints.

The Whore of Babylon influences the Beast of Revelation’s Formation

In prophecy in the Bible we see the Whore of Babylon’s influence in the kingdom of the Beast. She plays a major role in the Beast of Revelation’s coming to power.  Kings, leaders and statesmen embrace her.  Hence their policy reflects their union with her.

The Devil’s Symbols Exposes Seat of Antichrist-No.13

The Beast of Revelation destroys the Great Harlot in Revelation 18

While the previous kingdoms embraced the Harlot and committed fornication with her, the Beast of Revelation carries her rather than her sitting on top of the beast.  Especially relevant is their carrying her signifying she has become a burden.  The beast ends up destroying her.

How is the Great Harlot Destroyed by the Beast?

The Beast strips her naked, makes her desolate, eats her flesh and burns her with fire. In conclusion the Beast will unleash persecution against her followers and take all of the churches possessions. The Anchrist will have a Zero tolerance policy toward all religion. This most likely occurs at the start of the Great Tribulation until its end.  Finally, Physical Babylon recieves physical destruction as well.
