Revelation Chapter 17 & 18: The organized, commercial “church” Destroyed
Revelation 17: Occurs parenthetically along with the events of Chapters 15 & 16. This destruction of the Whore occurs at a point near the end of the final 42 months before our Lord's Triumphant Return in Glory.
Although we discuss the Mother of Harlots in this chapter study, a more thorough explanation of whom and what the Mother of Harlots & abominations on the earth is can be found HERE.
 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:
*Indicated the Chapter note above, this is one of the events that occurs during the final 42 months.
 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.
False "worship" by false believers.
THE FALSE religion of organized Christianity intertwined with the Governments of the world, all orchestrated by Rome. Culminating with the ecumenicism (conquering and to conquer) in the beginning of the Tribulation (summarized by the 1st Seal or white horse). This is direct reference to the "religion" allowed by the beast or Chrislam which is the un-Godly marrying of the three great apostasies of the final days.
Note: Every world leader has a religious or "spiritual" advisor which are directly tied to the Whore. These are the "Billy Grahams" of the world who secretly take their narratives from Rome or her protestant off-shoots in the name of ecumenicism or "christian" unity.
Adultery against the Living God with apostasy and distortion of God’s Truth MANIFESTED BY idolatry and ritual and vain repetition. All “Christian religions” have been modeled after Rome.
REMEMBER SINCE THE ROMAN CHURCH WAS CREATED IN circa 300 AD, IT WAS A GOVERNMENTAL CHURCH CREATED BY THE ROMAN GOVERNMENT THROUGH SATAN TO STOP THE SPREAD OF GOD’S WORD AND TRUE BELIEF. This government church made "Christianity" legal as long as it followed their distortions of God's Truth.
 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.
Note the correlation. The beast which the false religions of the world sit upon is the Dragon and his political beast. (or China and the ten richest men in the world whom control all of the western nation's politicians through bribery and extortion).
Rev.12  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
 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.
 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:
Remember the Roman government church was a man made concoction of pagan rituals and practices with plucked out of context Scripture to create a false “church” on the earth. Every "denomination" that claims to have separated from Rome, did so in outward appearance only, retaining many of the more subtle and therefore more dangerous apostasies of Rome. Examples include: regional tabernacles to stop the spread house to house, Nicolaitan rulership over these Scripturally fictional tabernacles, apostolic succession-ism (supernatural callings of Pastors), credentialing of "clergy", reverance of "men of God" which is the love of mammon, etc.
 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.
The pagan roman church will endorse the new ecumenical apostasy of "chrislam" and this apostasy will be the false religion that declares the first beast as the "messiah" and "Savior" of the world. The pope of the Whore will be the right hand man of the false prophet who causes all the world to worship the beast and take his mark. The false prophet will use His Whore (all of the organized, government protected religions) to push this anti-Christ upon the world.
In addition: The false prophet or second beast will use the Mother of Harlot's extensive denominational networks to identify and have killed all whom refuse the beast and his mark.
 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 Whore rides the back of the political beast to force the world to worship him. The seven heads REPRESENT ROME, THE VATICAN, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS. The ten horns represent the NEW World Order brought about by the ten richest men in the world. These richest men have installed their political puppets throughout the western nations. These ten kings which have received no kingdoms as of yet give their political, economic and military power to the beast. These three powers comes from the western nations of which these ten richest men fully control with their political minions bought and paid for.
 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.
*Evidence indicating the possession of the human beast by Abaddon (Apollyon) as described during the 5th and 6th Trumpets announcements of devastation in Chapter 9. Note also that earlier in Chapter 13 the political or first beast is described as coming out of the sea indicating the multi-national physical origin of the human whom becomes this beast. This passage refers to who possesses this human making him the beast. Abaddon is the only named reference of a creature which ascends out of the bottomless pit.
The political beast is previously referred to as the SON OF PERDITION.
John.17  While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.
Our Lord Himself described Judas Iscariot as a devil.
John 6:  Jesus answered them, Have not I chosen you twelve, and one of you is a devil?
 He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one of the twelve.
 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.
Rome is settled between seven hills. Clearing up any confusion from the earlier Chapters on what the seven heads metaphorically described actually mean.
 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.
 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
These empires on the earth are described on our Who is the Beast? page.
 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.
 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
The Whore rides the back of the political beast to force the world to worship him. The seven heads represent the seven hills of which Vatican (Rome) was built upon whom is the THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS. These seven heads also represent all the influence and direction Rome has both received from those five great empires of earth’s history past and she provides to the two remaining empires at the time of Revelation’s penning. Culminating with the eighth or the last great empire which will be worldwide and ruled by one man (the beast) installed by the world's richest men using Britain, China, Russia and select EU nations. These restored seven empires and the ten horns (Globalist billionaires whom control the seven empire’s leaders). These give their political, economic and military power to the beast.
Who are these ten kings? Note that they do not have kingdoms themselves but control the kingdoms of the world at the end through bribery and the love of money. These are the globalist billionaires on the earth the most wealthy of which have been around well over a century. They are end times robber barons. They have swindled, lied, cheated and murdered for generations to bring them to this pinnacle of global wealth. They truly own it all and it is all legal because they paid for it to be legal (with your stolen money). How does that make you feel? These are the pinnacle of reprobation for they are their own "gods" and they want to remake man and the earth after their own putrid image. The lesser ranks of these ten horns are newer money whom began building their vast wealth and financial power at the same time China did through free trade agreements. This quid pro quo, free trade started in the 1980s and resulted in the selling out of the western nation's labor, manufacturing, resources and technology to China by these western businessmen.
God used Daniel's Prophecy to foretell the world's takeover by these ten richest men:
Here is a 2022 current list of the ten richest people in the world: Keep in mind that there are family dynasties that existed a century or more before free trade with China. Although never included in these lists by their own design they are the true controllers of the world. I am referring to the Rothschild & Rockefeller dynasties. These two family dynasties control 93% of the earth's wealth, estimated at over 500 trillion dollars. The ten horns of the beast is undoubtedly controlled by these two families and consists of several members of their dynasties. All logic points to these two dynasties as the masterminds behind the end days global government.
It stands to reason that nobody gets to be a billionaire without the Rothschilds and Rockefellers allowing and enabling it. Remember they own 93% of the world's wealth.
The lesser "richest men" in the world recruited and enabled by these dynasties such as Musk, Gates and Soros for example are merely pawns and henchmen to these global overlords. They will scapegoat them when they need to and have no more use for them. Their names are publicized and propelled the most to the world as cover for their hidden orchestrations while they remain quietly under cover. They are just the front-men in case the sleeping masses actually ever do rise up.
Just like all their pawns who think they are safe under these overlord's wings. They are merely being used and are disposable.
The Book of Daniel presents several different perspectives of the same events at the end of the world. Events that lead up to the Antichrist's rise to power and his exploits during the 70th week. He shows us that three of the ten horns are sacrificed for the global cause of the beast. Perhaps the three mentioned since they are the most publicized. Betrayed by their "got-all-the-answers guy" they will introduce soon. Who will seemingly begin a mass clean up of woke-ism but it will only be history repeating itself and another trick, betraying the masses. Well the soon revealed beast will negotiate the surrender of America to China, Russia and the EU. It will not truly be a "war" and "surrender" but that is the spin they will play to the world. This political beast will be looked upon as the savior of the American people and he will pluck up three of the ten horns by the roots and sacrifice them to enhance his flatteries.
As in the past, once communists have control of a nation or in this case, the entire west they then eliminate the peasant class armies they indoctrinated and used for decades to divide the nations so thoroughly. Unless these commoner misfits can unlearn woke-ism quickly and become productive/submissive members of their new world order serf class, they are executed. Unlearning that level of brainwashing is rare.
Much of the wicked will fall soon but a far worse evil will be revealed in the one who causes this flood. Beware and trust no prominent people, none whatsoever.
Keep your eyes open believers. The globalist "ten kings with no kingdoms" are announcing their true intentions now. Why? Because the paid puppets they have used over the last few years to control their opposition delayed any actions by the commoners of western nations long enough to ensure their absolute control. Game over now and they know it. Sadly however the opposition they have controlled now for so long still doesn't get it.
Globalist's billionaires collaborating with China and Russia rule the earth, not any presidents or prime ministers. So get this clear in your heads now.
The ten horns are the globalist billionaire controllers of western governments approved of by the dragon (China). These Globalist billionaires will take overt power after the downfall of America forming a world government for the beast to rule from as Chancellor. There is little doubt at this point that China will lead (as the dragon) this coalition of anti-Christ, communist nations like Russia and their newly converted communist nations like Britain, Germany, France, Italy and Canada, etc.
 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.
*Reference to the battle of Armageddon previewed in Chapter 16 and further described in real time in Chapter 19.
 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
Representing the global influence of the Roman whore and not physical bodies of water. Roman influence has penetrated all the governments of the world through Rome's puppet denominations. This includes all fake and un-scriptural "christian" denominations, reprobate faux-Israel (Synagogue of Satan) and Islam which was a man-made “Wildman” religion created by Rome to destroy the Eastern Orthodox church after centuries of disagreements over their made-up apostate "christianity".
 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.
Once power is achieved and the whole world worships the beast there will be no need for the old WHORE or world-wide ecumenical "church" with its carefully designed religious confusion. Indicating that the ten horns or richest men in the world whom control the old western nations reach the height of their delusion and hatred for all that is God.
The reprobate of the world hates Christ and His True followers because we are a constant reminder of their sin and accountability to the Creator. This is why we will be hunted and murdered by the wicked. As their delusion grows, the beast's ten kings (without kingdoms but control them) will turn against even the fake religions of the world and the christian name itself, destroying the Mother of Harlots whom has adulterated every organized and commercial denomination on earth. Even though the mother of harlots are satan's counterfeit churches on earth they will still serve as a reminder of accountability to God. You see, the delusion God sends will be so strong at this point of the tribulation period that nothing even hinting of the old world "relic" religion is tolerated.
 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.
Indicating the ten kings of the beast and their growing desire to remove all religious influence from their new world order. The beast's kings believe the whore has served her purpose and should no longer have influence. They have become so deluded from reality at this point near the end that even their fake "religion" should no longer be tolerated.
 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
Vatican city in Rome. God allows the ten globalist horns of the beast to execute wrath on the three-way abomination called Chrislam. The wicked world however, believes this is the beast's wrath on all religions, creating another counterfeit event by the Dragon and his political beast.
Revelation 18: Continues the parenthetical description of the Mother of Harlots and her influence over all of the religious and political strongholds of the world.
 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
*Remember, this is the order in which the visions were given to John. This is not the order of events during the last 7 years. Note below in verse 4 God is calling out all true believers from the end days commercial "church".
 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
The false religion of Catholicism and its puppet denominations which has deluded and confused the earth since its creation in the 4th century.
 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Come out of Nicolaitan system of rulership whether Rome or Protestant or any commercial church which names the name of a false Christ not found in Scripture.
 For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.
 Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double.
 How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.
 Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.
God uses the ten lieutenants of the beast to execute His Wrath on Apostasy.
 And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning,
 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
 And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
 The merchandise of gold, and silver, and precious stones, and of pearls, and fine linen, and purple, and silk, and scarlet, and all thyine wood, and all manner vessels of ivory, and all manner vessels of most precious wood, and of brass, and iron, and marble,
 And cinnamon, and odours, and ointments, and frankincense, and wine, and oil, and fine flour, and wheat, and beasts, and sheep, and horses, and chariots, and slaves, and souls of men.
 And the fruits that thy soul lusted after are departed from thee, and all things which were dainty and goodly are departed from thee, and thou shalt find them no more at all.
 The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing,
 And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!
 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
 And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city!
 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.
 Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
 And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
 And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;
 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
*The word sorceries here and throughout Revelation is the same word for Pharmekia or Pharmaceuticals.
No wonder the pharmaceutical giants of the world are all owned by these same richest men of the world whom make up the ten horns of the beast.
God is calling out all true believers from the organized, commercial church since Rome.

 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
