The Great Whore

The Great Whore of Revelation

Many men have speculated about the identity of the "Great Whore of Rome" who will one day help the Antichrist to gain power, and then slaughter Fundamentalist Baptists and other Christians who remain faithful to Jesus and The Bible.  The Bible clearly gives us the identity of this whorish woman of the night:

"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.  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:  And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.  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.  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.  And here is the mind which hath wisdom.  The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth." (Revelation 17: 3-9)

"And the woman which thou sawest is that great city..." (Rev. 17:18)

We are told that this "Great Whore" will live in a city that has "seven mountains".  If you know geography, you will quickly recognize that this is "That Great City", the "City of Seven Hills", the City of Rome.  The Roman Empire of course was once centered in Rome.  Those reading this prophesy when it was written would likely have recognized this fact as well.  Rome does indeed have "seven mountains" or "hills".  About what other major city of the world can this be said? - Only about Rome.

Pope Benedict XVI Joseph Ratzinger

What is located within the City of Rome?  The largest and most significant part of Rome today is the Vatican which is the very center of Roman Catholicism.  The Vatican and her Popes have long been "arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones."  Look above at this picture of the current Pope of Rome.  You will quickly notice the red ("scarlet"), purple, and gold array.  The Popes of Rome have also been frequently arrayed in "precious stones and pearls" as well.

The Roman Catholic Pope and the Challis Golden Cup

The Centrality of the Pope's Golden Cup

The Popes of Rome have long been associated with "golden cups".  You can see many of these golden cups in the above photo, including one that the Pope is holding.  These golden cups are no minor part of the false religion called Roman Catholicism.  Such a golden cup even has a special name - it is called "The Challis" by the Pope and by other Roman Catholics.  These golden cups are used for the taking of "Communion" in the Roman Catholic Mass.  In this ceremony, the wine in The Challis is said to actually turn into human blood, the blood of Christ, which human blood the Popes and others then claim to drink from out of this golden cup called "The Challis". 

This "Great Whore" will be "drunken with the blood of the saints".  That the Roman Catholic Church has had a long history of shedding the blood of Christians is a well-documented fact.  Take, for example the Baptists.  The Roman Catholic Church has been responsible for the torture and murder of millions of Baptists over the centuries.  Such Popes of the past have figuratively been "drunken with the blood of the saints".  Of course, other Christians have also been slaughtered by this Great Roman Catholic Whore as well.  Many non-Christians, including countless Jews, have also had their blood spilt under the violent anti-Semitism and authority of Popes of Rome during the past few centuries.

One day, a Pope from this Great Roman Catholic Whore, (either Ratzinger or some other future Pope), will rule the religious world from the "Babylon" of Rome.  This Whore will also help to support the Antichrist in his murder of all those people who put Jesus and The Bible first, and so refuse to take the "Mark of the Beast".  (The Bible clearly declares in the Book of Revelation that all who take this "Mark of the Beast", (either on their right hand or on their forehead), will be eternally damned by God in the flames of Hell.)

The Great End Time Roman Catholic Whore currently has many supporters -- some active and some passive.  Even many Baptists refuse to preach against her or tell people to "Come out of her...". (Revelation 18:4)  Many have also supported her anti-Semitic movies and other propaganda pieces, such as anti-Semite Mel Gibson's Roman Catholic movie, "The Passion of The Christ".  Pseudo-Fundamentalists who support the Great Whore are becoming more prevalent as these days of apostasy grow ever deeper.  Nevertheless, the Bible prophesied that today's apostasy would indeed be a time of great spiritual deception and a falling away from Biblical Truth.

John wrote the Book of Revelation in the New Testament.  Daniel wrote the Book of Daniel in the Old Testament several hundred years earlier.  Both of these men wrote about their dreams and visions of the End Times.  Both men also agreed about what would happen to us in the future.  They wrote for us what would happen, because God had given them dreams and visions of the End Times.

One day, the Antichrist, ("Anti-Christ"), will come on the scene.  Many people in the past have claimed that this person or that person was the Antichrist.  All such conjecture about the Antichrist in the past has invariably proved false, as all such men have eventually died.

But who is the Antichrist?  Will Pope Benedict XVI or another Pope soon become The Antichrist?  It is not possible to know who The Antichrist is for sure until this wicked man does one particularly wicked act, an act which will then reveal him to be The Antichrist.  This act will be when The Antichrist enters the rebuilt Temple in Jerusalem and then pollutes it:

"And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week:  and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate." (Daniel 9:27)

"And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate." (Daniel 11:31)

Jesus himself mentioned this prophesy by the Prophet Daniel, which He referred to as "the abomination of desolation".  Jesus declared that this act would signal the start of the "Great Tribulation":

"When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judea flee into the mountains: Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." (Matthew 24:15-22)

The start of this period of Great Tribulation upon the Earth will be proceeded by another period of time referred to as the "Great Apostasy".  In this period of time, (which has already started), leaders of the various religions of the world will start to dialog with each other and link up together into a Great Ecumenical Movement. They will also start to move back towards the Roman Catholic Church, (called the "Great Whore" in Revelation 17:1).  The Roman Catholic Church and the Antichrist will then murder all true Christians through beheading, in a manner similar to what many Koran-believing Muslims now do to Christians, Jews, and others.  (Koran: "Strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them" - Sura 47:4):

"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.  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:  And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.  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.  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. And here is the mind which hath wisdom.  The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth." (Revelation 17: 3-9)

Although many Bapticatholics, New Evangelicals and others are now unashamed to link up with The Great End Time Roman Catholic Whore, these same people will have their heads removed at that time by the Antichrist and his Roman Catholic Prostitute.  They will be killed unless they have already died, have been "raptured", or else have been "Left Behind" and have taken the "Mark of the Beast".

Referring to the Great Roman Catholic Whore, all good Christians are commanded to "Come out of her, my people...". (Revelation 18:4)  Nevertheless, many so-called Baptists and others in today's apostasy figuratively shake their fists at God and rebel against this clear and direct command of Jesus Christ.  They refuse to publicly reject this spiritually fornicating Great Roman Catholic Whore and "Come out of her".  Many also refuse to warn others to come out from her and stop supporting her abominations and fornications.  Instead, many of these rebellious, nominal Christians persecute those faithful Christians who refuse to link up with or support the Great End Time Roman Catholic Whore. Nevertheless, persecution of the righteous by the wicked has been occurring since the days of Cain. (Cain murdered his own brother Abel, because Cain himself was wicked and his brother Abel was righteous before God.)

The Bible says that those who will not come out from their connection to this Whore of Rome will one day be plagued in Great Judgment by Almighty God.  Although many of these who refuse to "come out" from the Whore are already being judged by God in various ways for this abominable sin, at that time there will be great "plagues" sent directly by God in a manner similar to the plagues sent by God upon the ancient Egyptians under Moses' leadership.  This time however, God will send His plagues against those who "join themselves" with and so "spiritually fornicate" with this Great Harlot of Rome.

But who is the Antichrist?  The Bible declares that his number is "666", which some people have speculated means that his first, middle and last name will all have six letters to them.  Others think that this number "6" just means that he is a man, since "6" is the number of man.  Some have recently speculated that President Barack Hussein Obama is the Antichrist.  We will only know for sure who the Antichrist is when he enters into the rebuilt Temple and then pollutes it.

Please keep in mind though, that the Temple in Jerusalem has not yet been rebuilt.  Therefore, this act by the Antichrist must occur some time in the future.  Also, there are billions of people living in the world today.  Is the Antichrist one of those who is living in the world today?  We just cannot know for sure who the Antichrist is at this time.

Nevertheless, the Great End Time Roman Catholic Whore will be destroyed by this same Antichrist, (after he has finished "using" her for his purposes).  In one hour this destruction will come upon this "Babylon". (Rev. 18:10-19)  Then, the Antichrist will demand that all men worship him, (as if he, the Antichrist was God himself.)

The Antichrist, however, will only reign on the Earth for only a few short years.  Then Jesus Christ will come back to Earth from Heaven, destroy the Antichrist, and then reign Himself on the Earth for a thousand years.  After this time, the current Heavens and Earth will be destroyed by God.  God will then create a new Heavens and a new Earth to replace the current ones, and time as we know it now will be no more.  Eternity will have begun!
