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.G2532G2064G1520G1537G2033G32G3588G2192G2033G5357G2532G2980G3326G1700G3004G3427G1204G1166G4671G2917G3173G4204G2521G1909G4183G52042The 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."G3326G3739G935G1093G4203G2532G2730G1093G3184G1537G3631G846G42023So the angel took me in the Spiritc 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.G2532G667G3165G667G1722G4151G1519G2048G2532G1492G1135G2521G1909G2847G2342G1073G3686G988G2192G2033G2776G2532G1176G27684The 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.G2532G1135G2258G4016G4209G2532G2847G2532G5558G5557G2532G5093G3037G2532G3135G2192G5552G4221G1722G846G5495G1073G946G2532G168G846G42025A mysterious name was written on her forehead: "Babylon the Great, Mother of All Prostitutes and Obscenities in the World."G2532G1909G846G3359G3686G1125G3466G897G3173G3384G4204G2532G946G10936I 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.G2532G1492G1135G3184G1537G129G40G2532G1537G129G3144G2424G2532G1492G846G2296G3173G22957"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.G2532G32G2036G3427G1302G2296G1473G2046G4671G3466G1135G2532G2342G941G846G3588G2192G2033G2776G2532G1176G27688The beast you saw was once alive but isn't now. And yet he will soon come up out of the bottomless pitc 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.G2342G3739G1492G2258G2532G2076G3756G2532G3195G305G1537G12G2532G5217G1519G684G2532G2730G1909G1093G2296G3739G3686G1125G3756G1125G1909G975G2222G575G2602G2889G991G2342G3748G2258G2532G2076G3756G2539G20769"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.G5602G3563G3588G2192G4678G2033G2776G1526G2033G3735G1909G846G1135G2521G369910Five kings have already fallen, the sixth now reigns, and the seventh is yet to come, but his reign will be brief.G2532G1526G2033G935G4002G4098G2532G1520G2076G243G2064G3768G2064G2532G3752G2064G846G1163G3306G364111"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.G2532G2342G3739G2258G2532G2076G3756G2532G846G2076G3590G2532G2076G1537G2033G2532G5217G1519G68412The 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.G2532G1176G2768G3739G1492G1526G1176G935G3748G2983G3768G932G3768G235G2983G1849G5613G935G3391G5610G3326G234213They will all agree to give him their power and authority.G3778G2192G3391G1106G2532G1239G1438G1411G2532G1849G234214Together 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."G3778G4170G3326G721G2532G721G3528G846G3754G2076G2962G2962G2532G935G935G2532G3326G846G2822G2532G1588G2532G410315Then the angel said to me, "The waters where the prostitute is ruling represent masses of people of every nation and language.G2532G3004G3427G5204G3739G1492G3757G4204G2521G1526G2992G2532G3793G2532G1484G2532G110016The scarlet beast and his ten horns all hate the prostitute. They will strip her naked, eat her flesh, and burn her remains with fire.G2532G1176G2768G3739G1492G1909G2342G3778G3404G4204G2532G4160G846G2049G2532G1131G2532G5315G846G4561G2532G2618G846G1722G444217For 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.G1063G2316G1325G1519G846G2588G4160G846G1106G2532G4160G3391G1106G2532G1325G846G932G2342G891G4487G2316G505518And this woman you saw in your vision represents the great city that rules over the kings of the world."G2532G1135G3739G1492G2076G3173G4172G3588G2192G932G1909G935G1093
