Revelation Chapter 17

Mystery Babylon: The Religious Side

(Revelation 17:1 )
And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
  • Israel committed spiritual idolatry, but this is not Israel
  • The man waters are many peoples, two billion plus people worldwide (v. 15)
  • The Gentiles committed spiritual idolatry, but this is not the Gentiles
  • The True Churches have in part always committed spiritual idolatry, but this is not the true Church
  • The entire description and context can only make it mean one thing: Rome and Romanism
WHORE, n. Hore. [G. The correct orthography is hore.] A harlot; a courtesan; a concubine; a prostitute.
WHORE, v.i. [supra.] To have unlawful sexual commerce; to practice lewdness.
WHORE, v.t. To corrupt by lewd intercourse. [Little used.]




1. City States.
Did the world wars, revolutions and big events of human history happen naturally, or coincidentally, or were they calculated and pre-planned? If they were pre planned, who planned them?

The answer to this question can be found within the boundaries of 3 of the worlds most powerful cities. Those 3 cities belong to no nation and pay no taxes. They are
Washington's District of Columbia, which is not part of the City of Washington or the US. The inner city of London, which is not part of London or England, and Vatican City, which is not part of Rome or Italy.

These cities, called City States, have their own independent flag, their own separate laws and their own separate identity.

2. Vatican City
Gracing the walls of St Peter's Basilica is the Vatican-approved image of God, depicted as an angry bearded man in the sky, and painted by Michael Angelo. Cruel/violent images of God's tortured son, suffering, bleeding and dying with thorns gouged through his skull/nails pounded through his feet and hands are on display throughout the Vatican. These images serve as reminders that God allowed his son to be tortured and killed to save the souls of human beings who are all born sinners.

The Vatican rules over approximately 2bn of the worlds 6.2bn people. The colossal wealth of the Vatican includes enormous investments with the Rothschilds in Britain, France, USA, with giant oil and weapons corporations like Shell and General Electric. The Vatican's solid gold bullion, worth billions, is stored with the Rothschild controlled Bank of England and the US Federal Reserve Bank.

The Catholic Church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence, possessing more material wealth than any bank, corporation, giant trust or government anywhere on the globe.

While 2/3 of the world earns less than $2 a day and 1/5 of the world is underfed or starving to death, the Vatican hoards the world's wealth, profits from it on the stock market and at the same time preaches about giving.

So how did the Vatican accumulate all that wealth over the millennia? One method was to put a price tag on sin. Many bishops and popes actively marketed guilt, sin and fear for profit, by selling indulgences. Worshippers were encouraged to pre-pay for sins they hadn't yet committed and get pardoned ahead of time. Those who didn't pay-up risked eternal damnation. Another method was to get wealthy land owners to hand-over their land/fortune to the church on their death bed, in exchange for a blessing which would supposedly enable them to go to heaven.

Pope Leo the fifth rebuilt St Peter's Basilica, by selling tickets out of hell and tickets to heaven.

During the dark ages, the Catholic Church not only hoarded the wealth they collected from the poor, but they hoarded knowledge. They kept the masses ignorant and in the dark by denying them a basic education. They also prohibited anyone from reading or even possessing a Bible, under pain of death.

Between 1095-1291 AD the Pope launched 7 blood baths called the Christian Crusaides, torturing, murdering, beheading and mass murdering hundreds of thousands of Muslims and Jews in the name of God. The Pope's brutal soldiers were called Knights Templar or Knights of the Temple of Solomon and evolved into today's secretive brotherhood called the Freemasons.

Between 1450-1700 AD the Catholic Church followed up their holy terror with the inquisition. Based on rumours of practicing witchcraft, the Catholic Church hunted down, tortured and burned-alive 10's of 1000's of innocent women at the stake.

During WWII the Vatican was criticized for supporting Hitler and his Nazi regime. To this day, the Vatican is still under investigation for plundering Nazi gold from the Swiss bank accounts of Jewish holocaust victims.

Over the past 5 decades more than 1,500 priests and bishops have been identified in the sexual assault of tens of thousands of boys and girls in their trusting congregations and orphanages.

Why is the filthy rich institution preaching spiritual values of poverty and chastity while cardinals, bishops and priests cover-up their crimes of sexual abuse? Why has the church fought and resisted the compensation claims of their sexually, emotionally and spiritually traumatised victims?

3. The City of London.
Like Vatican city, London's inner city is also a privately owned corporation or city state, located right in the middle of greater London. It became a sovereign state in 1694 when King William III of Orange privatised and turned the Bank of England over to the bankers. Today, the City State of London is the world's financial power centre and the wealthiest square mile on the face of the Earth. It houses the Rothschild controlled Bank of England, Lloyds of London, the London stock exchange, all British banks, the branch offices of 385 foreign banks and 70 US banks. It has its own courts, its own laws, its own flag and its own police force. It is not part of greater London, or England, or the British Commonwealth and pays no taxes. The City State of London houses Fleet Street's newspaper and publishing monopolies. It is also the headquarters for world wide English Freemasonry and headquarters for the world wide money cartel known as The Crown.

Contrary to popular belief, The Crown is not the Royal Family or the British Monarch. The Crown is the private corporate City State of London. It has a council of 12 members who rule the corporation under a mayor, called the Lord Mayor. The Lord mayor and his 12 member council serves as proxies or representatives who sit-in for13 of the worlds wealthiest, most powerful banking families, including the Rothschild family, the Warburg family, the Oppenheimer family and the Schiff family. These families and their descendants run the Crown Corporation of London.

The Crown Corporation holds the title to world wide Crown land in Crown colonies like Canada, Australia and New Zealand. British parliament and the British prime minister serve as a public front for the hidden power of these ruling crown families.

4. The District of Columbia.
Like the City States of London and the Vatican, a third city state was officially created in 1982. That city state is called the District of Columbia and is located on 10sq miles of land in the heart of Washington. The District of Columbia flies its own flag and has its own independent constitution.

The constitution for the District of Columbia operates under a tyrannical Roman law known as Lex Fori, which bares no resemblance to the US Constitution. When Congress passed the act of 1871 it created a separate corporation known as THE UNITED STATES and corporate government for the District of Columbia. This treasonous act allowed the District of Columbia to operate as a corporation outside the original constitution of the United States and outside of the best interests of American Citizens.

Although geographically separate, the city states of London, the Vatican and the District of Columbia are one interlocking empire called Empire of the City.

The flag of Washington's district of Columbia has 3 red stars. One for each city state in the 3 city empire. This corporate empire of 3 city states controls the world economically, through London's inner city, militarily through the District of Columbia and spiritually through the Vatican.

5. The U.S.A. - A Crown Colony.
A sobering study of the signed treaties and charters between Britain and the US exposes a shocking truth. The US has always been and still is a British Crown colony.

King James I was famous not for just translating the Bible into the King James version. But for signing the first charter of Virginia in 1606. That charter granted America's British forefathers a licence to settle and colonise America. The charter also guaranteed that future Kings/Queens of England would have sovereign authority over all citizens and colonised land in America, stolen from the Indians.

After America declared its independence from Great Britain, the Treaty of 1783 was signed. That treaty specifically identifies the King of England as the Prince of the United States and contradicts the belief that America won the War of Independence.

Although King George III of England gave up most of his claims over American colonies, he kept his right to continue receiving payment for his business venture of colonising America.

If America had really won the War of Independence, they would never have agreed to pay debts and reparations to the King of England.

America's blood soaked War of Independence against the British bankrupted America and turned its citizens into permanent debt slaves of the King. In the War of 1812, the British torched and burned to the ground the Whitehouse and all US government buildings. Destroying ratification records of the US constitution.

Most US citizens believe that the US is a country and the President is the most powerful man on earth. The US is not a country. It is a corporation. And the president is President of the Corporation of the United States. He and his elected officials work for the corporation, not for the American people. Since the US is a corporation, who owns the corporation of the United States?

Like Canada and Australia whose leaders are Prime Ministers of the Queen and whose land is called Crown Land, the US is just another crown colony. Crown colonies are controlled by the Empire of the 3 City States.

6. Obelisks
At the centre of each city state is a towering phallic shaped stone monument called an obelisk that points skyward. In DC city state, the obelisk known as the Washington monument was dedicated to the Freemason George Washington by the Freemason Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia. 250 Masonic lodges financed the Washington obelisk monument, including the Knights Templar Masonic order.

At the heart of London City State, is a 187 ton 69 foot tall Egyptian obelisk called Cleopatra's Needle. It was transported from Egypt and erected on the banks of the river Thames.

In Vatican city, another Egyptian obelisk towers high above St Peter's square.

Obelisks are phallic shaped monuments honouring the pagan sun god of ancient Egypt called Amen Ra. The spirit of this pagan god is said to reside within the obelisk

(Revelation 17:2 )
With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication.

(Jeremiah 7:18 )
The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

(Jeremiah 44:17-19 )
But we will certainly do whatsoever thing goeth forth out of our own mouth, to burn incense unto the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, as we have done, we, and our fathers, our kings, and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem: for then had we plenty of victuals, and were well, and saw no evil. But since we left off to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine. And when we burned incense to the queen of heaven, and poured out drink offerings unto her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings unto her, without our men?

(Jeremiah 44:25 )
Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, saying; Ye and your wives have both spoken with your mouths, and fulfilled with your hand, saying, We will surely perform our vows that we have vowed, to burn incense to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto her: ye will surely accomplish your vows, and surely perform your vows.

(Revelation 17:3 )
So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.

  • A Woman, the virgin, is the official symbol of the R.C.C (Madonna and Child, etc.)
  • A Woman rides the beast!
  • There are 101 ways she can blaspheme, from saints, to claims of absolute authority over God and His Word, to Mariolatry, perpetual virginity, etc.
  • The seven heads and ten horns will be explained by John in a few verses ahead of here
  • The woman very often, on coins, in statues, etc. is depicted with a chalice in her hand
(Revelation 17:4 )
And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication:

  • The official colors of Rome are purple and scarlet
(Jeremiah 51:7 )
Babylon hath been a golden cup in the LORD'S hand, that made all the earth drunken: the nations have drunken of her wine; therefore the nations are mad.

(Revelation 17:5 )
  • This is all of the mystery religions, the New Age, Islam, Roman Catholicism combined
  • Harlot........spiritual fornication
  • Abominations.....religious practices, murders, greed, power, Mariolatry, sacraments, idolatry
  • Nimrod started the mystery religions with his wife Tammuz (Genesis), Semiramis (called the Queen of Heaven in her day and after, until today) started the occult; all occultic practices on earth today can be traced back to Babylon
  • The Two Babylons: Alexander Hislop, free online.
(Revelation 17:6 )
And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

  • Over fifteen hundred years of murdering Christians and Jews in her bloodlust has emptied her cup and made her intoxicated
  • God, in the meantime, has filled His cup of wrather to pour upon her in vengeance and judgment
(Revelation 17:7-8 )
And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

  • The beast is the anti-Christ, the man from hell, bound to return there
  • The wonder comes from the power (Rev. 13:4), charisma (this verse), the false peace (Rev. 6:4), false miracles (Rev. 13:13, 2 Thess. 2:9)
(Daniel 7:7 )
After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns.

(Daniel 7:20 )
And of the ten horns that were in his head, and of the other which came up, and before whom three fell; even of that horn that had eyes, and a mouth that spake very great things, whose look was more stout than his fellows.

(Daniel 7:24 )
And the ten horns out of this kingdom are ten kings that shall arise: and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings.

(Revelation 17:9 )
And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.

  • Add this to all of the other criteria, her history, methods, ways, this has to be the ancient Roman Empire, and Rome as its capital
(Revelation 17:10 )
And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space.
  • Seven kings in all of history, to God, as important
  • 1: Egypt-FALLEN
  • 2: Assyria-FALLEN
  • 3: Babylon-FALLEN
  • 4: Medo-Persia-FALLEN
  • 5: Greece-FALLEN
  • 6.: Rome (first)-present in A.D. 90, time of writing
  • 7: Rome II: ???
  • 8: (last, anti-Christ, the ELEVENTH horn)
(Revelation 17:11 )
And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

  • The anti-Christ, and he will not last long
(Revelation 17:12 )
And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

  • Daniel 2, 7, 1
  • No kingdom as yet, so we do not know who they are yet
(Revelation 17:13 )
These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.

  • Unity for the sake of unity never works with fallen man, and never will
(Revelation 17:14 )
These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

  • We are coming with Him


(Jude 1:14 )
And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,


(Romans 1:7 )
To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.

(1 Corinthians 1:2 )
Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:

(2 Peter 1:10 )
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:


(2 Peter 1:10 )
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:

(John 10:16 )
And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.

(Acts 13:46 )
Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.
(Revelation 17:15 )
And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

  • This is the explanation of the term "waters" in Revelation 17:1, et al.
(Revelation 17:16 )
And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

  • The very ten nations that loved and adored her will turn on her and destroy her
  • This is common when there is no longer a use for someone to eliminate them, but....
(Revelation 17:17 )
For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
  • But, in this case, God is simply using them to finally destroy her for Him
  • They want the beast, not the whore, as their leader now
(Revelation 17:18 )
And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.

  • The following are the characteristics of the woman
  1. Prostitute, promiscuous, unfaithful
  2. Worldwide influence (over the waters)
  3. Riding the beast
  4. Purple, scarlet, gold, immense wealth
  5. Holding a golden cup, a false one filled with all sorts of abominations
  6. This is Nimrod's Mystery Babylon, source of all occultic religions
  7. The word "vicar" is used for the pope, and means a replacement/false Christ
  8. Persecutor of Christians, loves their shed Blood
  9. City on seven hills
  10. A great city that rules over all of the kings of the earth
