The Great Prostitute

17One of the seven angels who had poured out the seven bowls came over and spoke to me. "Come with me," he said, "and I will show you the judgment that is going to come on the great prostitute, who rules over many waters.G2532G2064G1520G1537G2033G32G3588G2192G2033G5357G2532G2980G3326G1700G3004G3427G1204G1166G4671G2917G3173G4204G2521G1909G4183G5204 2The kings of the world have committed adultery with her, and the people who belong to this world have been made drunk by the wine of her immorality."G3326G3739G935G1093G4203G2532G2730G1093G3184G1537G3631G846G4202 3So the angel took me in the Spirit into the wilderness. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that had seven heads and ten horns, and blasphemies against God were written all over it.G2532G667G3165G667G1722G4151G1519G2048G2532G1492G1135G2521G1909G2847G2342G1073G3686G988G2192G2033G2776G2532G1176G2768 4The woman wore purple and scarlet clothing and beautiful jewelry made of gold and precious gems and pearls. In her hand she held a gold goblet full of obscenities and the impurities of her immorality.G2532G1135G2258G4016G4209G2532G2847G2532G5558G5557G2532G5093G3037G2532G3135G2192G5552G4221G1722G846G5495G1073G946G2532G168G846G4202 5A mysterious name was written on her forehead: "Babylon the Great, Mother of All Prostitutes and Obscenities in the World."G2532G1909G846G3359G3686G1125G3466G897G3173G3384G4204G2532G946G1093 6I could see that she was drunk—drunk with the blood of God's holy people who were witnesses for Jesus. I stared at her in complete amazement.G2532G1492G1135G3184G1537G129G40G2532G1537G129G3144G2424G2532G1492G846G2296G3173G2295 7"Why are you so amazed?" the angel asked. "I will tell you the mystery of this woman and of the beast with seven heads and ten horns on which she sits.G2532G32G2036G3427G1302G2296G1473G2046G4671G3466G1135G2532G2342G941G846G3588G2192G2033G2776G2532G1176G2768 8The beast you saw was once alive but isn't now. And yet he will soon come up out of the bottomless pit and go to eternal destruction. And the people who belong to this world, whose names were not written in the Book of Life before the world was made, will be amazed at the reappearance of this beast who had died.G2342G3739G1492G2258G2532G2076G3756G2532G3195G305G1537G12G2532G5217G1519G684G2532G2730G1909G1093G2296G3739G3686G1125G3756G1125G1909G975G2222G575G2602G2889G991G2342G3748G2258G2532G2076G3756G2539G2076 9"This calls for a mind with understanding: The seven heads of the beast represent the seven hills where the woman rules. They also represent seven kings.G5602G3563G3588G2192G4678G2033G2776G1526G2033G3735G1909G846G1135G2521G3699 10Five kings have already fallen, the sixth now reigns, and the seventh is yet to come, but his reign will be brief.G2532G1526G2033G935G4002G4098G2532G1520G2076G243G2064G3768G2064G2532G3752G2064G846G1163G3306G3641 11"The scarlet beast that was, but is no longer, is the eighth king. He is like the other seven, and he, too, is headed for destruction.G2532G2342G3739G2258G2532G2076G3756G2532G846G2076G3590G2532G2076G1537G2033G2532G5217G1519G684 12The ten horns of the beast are ten kings who have not yet risen to power. They will be appointed to their kingdoms for one brief moment to reign with the beast.G2532G1176G2768G3739G1492G1526G1176G935G3748G2983G3768G932G3768G235G2983G1849G5613G935G3391G5610G3326G2342 13They will all agree to give him their power and authority.G3778G2192G3391G1106G2532G1239G1438G1411G2532G1849G2342 14Together they will go to war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them because he is Lord of all lords and King of all kings. And his called and chosen and faithful ones will be with him."G3778G4170G3326G721G2532G721G3528G846G3754G2076G2962G2962G2532G935G935G2532G3326G846G2822G2532G1588G2532G4103 15Then the angel said to me, "The waters where the prostitute is ruling represent masses of people of every nation and language.G2532G3004G3427G5204G3739G1492G3757G4204G2521G1526G2992G2532G3793G2532G1484G2532G1100 16The scarlet beast and his ten horns all hate the prostitute. They will strip her naked, eat her flesh, and burn her remains with fire.G2532G1176G2768G3739G1492G1909G2342G3778G3404G4204G2532G4160G846G2049G2532G1131G2532G5315G846G4561G2532G2618G846G1722G4442 17For God has put a plan into their minds, a plan that will carry out his purposes. They will agree to give their authority to the scarlet beast, and so the words of God will be fulfilled.G1063G2316G1325G1519G846G2588G4160G846G1106G2532G4160G3391G1106G2532G1325G846G932G2342G891G4487G2316G5055 18And this woman you saw in your vision represents the great city that rules over the kings of the world."G2532G1135G3739G1492G2076G3173G4172G3588G2192G932G1909G935G1093
