“The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries.” (Rev. 17:4)
For more than a century Protestant Religions have been indoctrinating their followers to recognize Babylon the Harlot as the Catholic Church. Recently, due to the latest events taking place around the world, some of these religions and cults have adjusted their teachings and are now telling their followers that the biblical prostitute is Islam. But, have they been telling us the truth?
Neither the Roman Catholic nor the Islamic religion existed by the time the Bible was written. The Catholic Religion did not come into existence until after the year 350 A.C., and the Islamic religion was not officially born until 632 A.C. after the death of Muhammad. It is for that reason that you will never find any clear direct reference of them in the Bible. Even when the Bible clearly states who the spiritual prostitute is, many protestant religions insist in using personal interpretations to tell their followers that the biblical prostitute represents one of these two religions.
Let us investigate who this evil biblical entity really is according to the Scriptures.
Babylon the Harlot or Prostitute in the Old testament
See how the faithful city has become a harlot! She once was full of justice; righteousness used to dwell in her— but now murderers!” (Isaiah 1:21 niv 1984)
Do not rejoice, O Israel; do not be jubilant like the other nations. For you have been unfaithful to your God; you love the wages of a prostitute at every threshing floor. (Hosea 9:1)
Long ago you broke off your yoke and tore off your bonds; you said, ‘I will not serve you!’ Indeed, on every high hill and under every spreading tree you lay down as a prostitute.” (Jeremiah 2:20)
But you trusted in your beauty and used your fame to become a prostitute. You lavished your favors on anyone who passed by and your beauty became his.” (Ezekiel 16:15)
All her idols will be broken to pieces; all her temple gifts will be burned with fire; I will destroy all her images. Since she gathered her gifts from the wages of prostitutes, as the wages of prostitutes they will again be used.” (Micah 1:7)
Israel engaging in prostitution with the Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians and anyone who passed by:
You engaged in prostitution with the Egyptians, your lustful neighbors, and provoked me to anger with your increasing promiscuity.” (Ezekiel 16:15)
You engaged in prostitution with the Assyrians too, because you were insatiable; and even after that, you still were not satisfied.” (Ezekiel 16:28)
Then you increased your promiscuity to include Babylonia, a land of merchants, but even with this you were not satisfied.” (Ezekiel 16:29)
At the head of every street you built your lofty shrines and degraded your beauty, offering your body with increasing promiscuity to anyone who passed by.” (Ezekiel 16:25)
God describes Israel as a brazen prostitute. Unlike any other prostitute, Israel would not charge a fee but would pay others who engage in spiritual promiscuity with her.
“How weak-willed you are, declares the Sovereign Lord, when you do all these things, acting like a brazen prostitute! When you built your mounds at the head of every street and made your lofty shrines in every public square, you were unlike a prostitute, because you scorned payment. “‘You adulterous wife! You prefer strangers to your own husband! Every prostitute receives a fee, but you give gifts to all your lovers, bribing them to come to you from everywhere for your illicit favors. So in your prostitution you are the opposite of others; no one runs after you for your favors. You are the very opposite, for you give payment and none is given to you.
Therefore, you prostitute, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because you poured out your wealth and exposed your nakedness in your promiscuity with your lovers, and because of all your detestable idols, and because you gave them your children’s blood, therefore I am going to gather all your lovers, with whom you found pleasure, those you loved as well as those you hated. I will gather them against you from all around and will strip you in front of them, and they will see all your nakedness.” (Ezekiel 16:30-37)
This Biblical Harlot called (Israel) had an evil king who exceeded all the riches of the kingdoms on earth and exercised power over the world:
“King Solomon was greater in riches and wisdom than all the other kings of the earth. The whole world sought audience with Solomon to hear the wisdom God had put in his heart.” (1 Kings 10:23)
According to the Jewish Encyclopedia the Kingdom of Solomon was so rich and powerful that its boundaries extended beyond our world including spiritual realms of angels and demons.
“On account of his modest request for wisdom only, Solomon was rewarded with riches and an unprecedentedly glorious reign (comp. I Kings iii. 13, v. 1 et seq.). His realm is described by the Rabbis as having extended, before his fall (see below), over the upper world inhabited by the angels and over the whole of the terrestrial globe with all its inhabitants, including all the beasts, fowls, and reptiles, as well as the demons and spirits.” (Meg. 11b; Sanh. 20b; B. M. 86b; Gen. R. xxxiv. 17; Cant. R. l.c.; Eccl. R. ii. 5; Targ. Sheni l.c.).(see Jewish Encyclopedia, article on Solomon) Emphasis added
Solomon did evil things. He lifted altars all around Jerusalem and worshiped idols of pagan gods (abominations). Some of the pagan gods that Solomon and Israel went after, required the sacrifice of innocent children. One of these abominable gods was Molech. The practice of sacrificing their children to this god became common among the people of Israel.
“For Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, and after Milcom the abomination of the Ammonites. So Solomon did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and did not wholly follow the Lord, as David his father had done. Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, and for Molech the abomination of the Ammonites, on the mountain east of Jerusalem.” (1 Kings 11:5-7)
The Number of the Beast (666)
King Solomon is the only man in the Bible identified with the number (666):
“The weight of the gold that Solomon received yearly was 666 talents…” (1 Kings 10:14 ESV)
Although some religious “teachers” would say the opposite, there is no evidence in scripture to prove that King Solomon had repented. There is actually more evidence to prove that Solomon went astray and died without ever repenting.
Solomon became obsessed with wisdom and loved it in a very obscure way. Wisdom became an idol to him:
“Wisdom reacheth from one end to another mightily: and sweetly doth she order all things. I loved her, and sought her out from my youth, I desired to make her my spouse, and I was a lover of her beauty. In that she is conversant with God, she magnifieth her nobility: yea, the Lord of all things himself loved her. For she is privy to the mysteries of the knowledge of God, and a lover of his works.” (The Wisdom of Solomon 8:1-4 Apocrypha)
Solomon became erratic and arrogant to the point that he saw himself above everybody, almost like a god. He allowed himself to be seduced using his evil wisdom to exercise power and control over the nations. Talking again about wisdom Solomon said:
“Moreover by the means of her I shall obtain immortality, and leave behind me an everlasting memorial to them that come after me. I shall set the people in order, and the nations shall be subject unto me.” (The Wisdom of Solomon 8:13-14 Apocrypha)
King Solomon’s everlasting memorial became a reality. Today if you do serious research on occultism, you may realize that all sorcery, Kabbalah (Cabbala), magic, necromancy and all kinds of witchcraft practices used by secret societies, all have their roots in the esoteric wisdom of Solomon.
Illustration of Babylon the Prostitute showing the cup of fornication with the pagan symbol of “the Star of her god Rephan”, condemned by God in Amos 5:26-27 and Acts 7:43 KJV. According to Rev 17 this prostitute is controlling Peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues.
The Six Pointed Star or Seal of Solomon (hexagram)
The Seal of Solomon is the hexagram, the very same symbol Zionists proclaim as the “Star of David”, has nothing to do with David at all. This symbol was brought to the people of Israel by King Solomon when he turned to witchcraft and idolatry after his marriage to the Pharaoh’s daughter in 922 B.C.. It is the mark of pagan gods like Sakkuth and Kaiwan which were the names for the planet god Saturn. Other terrible god was Molech (Moloch) whom Solomon sacrificed children to for fortune and love to his strange pagan wives.
“[No] but [instead of bringing Me the appointed sacrifices] you carried about the tent of your king Sakkuth and Kaiwan [names for the gods of the planet Saturn], your images of your star-god which you made for yourselves [and you will do so again].” (Amos 5:26 Amplified Bible)
“But God turned away and gave them over to worship the host of heaven, as it is written in the book of the prophets: ‘Did you bring to me slain beasts and sacrifices, during the forty years in the wilderness, O house of Israel? You took up the tent of Moloch and the star of your god Rephan, the images that you made to worship; and I will send you into exile beyond Babylon.’” (Amos 7:42-43 ESV)
The Seal of Solomon is a graphical (geometrical) representation or translation of 666. Moloch, Chiun or Kaiwan and Remphan are all names referring to the star god, Saturn, whose symbol is a six pointed star formed by two triangles. Saturn was the supreme god of the Chaldeans.
S = 060
T = 400
U = 006
R = 200
“Now, the name SATURN in Chaldee is pronounced Satur; but, as every Chaldee scholar knows, consists only of four letters, thus–Stur [ed. Star?]. This name contains exactly the Apocalyptic number.” (Hislop, p. 269)
6 Points, 6 Equilateral Triangles and 6 Sides of the Hexagon All Translating in 666
If we examine the hexagram or “Seal of Solomon” closely, we will discover something astonishing. It has six points, forms six equilateral triangles, and in its interior forms a six sided hexagon — thus it reveals the number of Satan’ Antichrist beast — 6 points, 6 triangles, and the 6 sides of the hexagram = 666 !
But where is this six-pointed star or hexagram really coming from? The symbol has always been known by its magical properties and it is commonly used in demonology and spiritual invocations. The hexagram (Six-pointed Star) or Star of god Raphan (Saturn), as mentioned in the Bible (Amos 5:26-27 ESV), was never used by King David and the Hebrews until the kingdom of Solomon. He brought the six-pointed star to Israel along with the rest of the pagan gods known as Moloch, Raphan and Chiun, all different names given to god Saturn (Satan).
Not only the Jewish Six Pointed Star (pentagram) translates into 666, but I also find very curios that Rabbinical Judaism defines the number of the apocalyptic beast (666) as one with “messianic potential”.
The number 666 has significance as the numerical value of the Hebrew verse: “Ata yigdal na koach Ado-nai – Now, I pray, let the Power of my Lord be great.” (Numbers 14:17). This was Moshe’s prayer invoking Divine Mercy on behalf of the Jewish People.
“Mosad Hayesod” cites the Vilna Gaon’s commentary on the Zohar that “the number 666 contains hidden within it exalted and lofty messianic potential.” No other explanation is offered there.
We do know that the number six represents the physical world. The Torah describes the creation of the universe as a six part, six day, process. Our ancient sources describe the universe as emanating in six directions — north, south, east, west, up, down — from a central point. All physical space and all physical objects have these six dimensions.
666 is six repeated three times. Repeating a concept three times represents the affirmation and strength of that concept. The number 666 could thus represent the strength and perfection of the physical world, which Judaism teaches will occur in the messianic era, when the physical world will reach its ultimate purpose, to be a vehicle through which the created experience the Creator.” (Rabbi Ohr Somayach, Ask the Rabbi, Topic on the 666, website www.ohr.edu) sources used by Rabbi Ohr somayach were: (Mosad Hayesod pp. 204-205) and (Rabbi Dovid Rossoff, author of “Where Heaven Touches Earth,” Guardian Press) Emphasis added
After all these evident spiritual prostitution, observe how God describes Israel as a devastated woman dressing herself in scarlet, adorning her body with Jewels of Gold. Compare this prostitute to the one riding on the beast in Revelations 17.
What are you doing, O devastated one? Why dress yourself in scarlet and put on jewels of gold? Why shade your eyes with paint? You adorn yourself in vain. Your lovers despise you; they seek your life.” (Jeremiah 4:30)
Compare Jeremiah 4:30 to Revelations 17:4-5 (niv 1984)
The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries. This title was written on her forehead:
Who are the Roman Catholics and the rest of the religions that came out her?
Now that we have identified Babylon the Great and mother of prostitutes, we could conclude saying that the rest of the religions, including Catholic Rome, and the nations (waters) are the daughters of this Harlot (prostitute). This religions are all the different fronts that the prostitute has used to keep the nations deceived. Satan has customized religions to the specific needs of everyone.
Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. (Revelation 17:15)
Everyone who quotes proverbs will quote this proverb about you: “Like mother, like daughter.” You are a true daughter of your mother, who despised her husband and her children; and you are a true sister of your sisters, who despised their husbands and their children. Your mother was a Hittite and your father an Amorite. Your older sister was Samaria, who lived to the north of you with her daughters; and your younger sister, who lived to the south of you with her daughters, was Sodom. You not only walked in their ways and copied their detestable practices, but in all your ways you soon became more depraved than they. As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, your sister Sodom and her daughters never did what you and your daughters have done.” (Ezekiel 16:44-48)
All of the religious conglomerate, from the Catholics to the modern apostate protestant evangelical movement that have dedicated their time to create confusion giving birth to false prophets are nothing but spiritual daughters of the harlot. Together the daughters of the biblical prostitute will bring the false messiah, they will all point at this Godless Israel and restore its Antichrist position of power on earth. The book of Revelation 18 makes the final call to come out of Babylon:
Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues; for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes. (Rev 18:4-5)
How is it that the Biblical Harlot was able to spread its prostitution tentacles all over the nations?
In the book of Hosea God tells Israel that as a consequence for their disobedience they will be spread out around the world and will become wanderers among the nations:
My God will reject them because they have not obeyed him; they will be wanderers among the nations.” (Hosea 9:17)
According to Revelations, Babylon the Great and mother of all prostitutes will be surrounded and destroyed at the end. The beast will come out of the nations where the prostitute sits. This last beast could be nothing else than the New World Order currently rising, and according to the book of Revelations this beast will soon hate the prostitute and destroy it.
The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God’s words are fulfilled.” (Revelation 17:16-17)
God warned this would happen to the prostitute back in Ezekiel 16:35-42. Read and compare to Revelation 14:16-17
Therefore, you prostitute, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Because you poured out your wealth and exposed your nakedness in your promiscuity with your lovers, and because of all your detestable idols, and because you gave them your children’s blood, therefore I am going to gather all your lovers, with whom you found pleasure, those you loved as well as those you hated. I will gather them against you from all around and will strip you in front of them, and they will see all your nakedness. I will sentence you to the punishment of women who commit adultery and who shed blood; I will bring upon you the blood vengeance of my wrath and jealous anger. Then I will hand you over to your lovers, and they will tear down your mounds and destroy your lofty shrines. They will strip you of your clothes and take your fine jewelry and leave you naked and bare.“ (Ezekiel 16:35-42)
If you still have doubt about who this woman (Babylon the Prostitute) is, then read the next three verses. They not only describe her as “THE GREAT CITY” but also mention where this great city is located.
The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.” (Revelation 17:16-18)
Woe! Woe, O great city, O Babylon, city of power! In one hour your doom has come!’” (Revelation 18:10)
Woe! Woe, O great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls! In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’” (Revelation 18:16-17)
When they see the smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this great city?” (Revelation 18:18)
Woe! Woe, O great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!” (Revelation 18:19)
With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again.” (Revelation 18:21)
WHERE IS THIS “GREAT CITY” LOCATED?
Revelation 11:19 holds the key:
Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. (Revelation 11:9) Emphasis added
“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets…” (Matthew 23:37)
Babylon the prostitute (the great city) is destroyed and blamed for the blood of the prophets and the saints and all who have been murdered on Earth. Compare (Rev 18:24) to the words of Jesus when He identifies them as those who kill the prophets and stone those who are sent to her (Matthew 23:37-39). Now, how would that prostitute that killed the prophets could be the Catholic Church or the Islam when they weren’t even around yet?
In Babylon the prostitute was found the blood of the prophets, the saints, and of all who have been killed on earth:
In her was found the blood of prophets and of the saints, and of all who have been killed on the earth.” (Rev 18:24)
I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of those who bore testimony to Jesus.” (Revelation 17:6)
He has condemned the great prostitute who corrupted the earth by her adulteries. He has avenged on her the blood of his servants.” (Revelation 19:2)
Jesus Christ said Himself that the Prostitute will be held responsible for the blood of all the prophets that had been killed since the beginning of the world.
Woe to you, because you build tombs for the prophets, and it was your forefathers who killed them. So you testify that you approve of what your forefathers did; they killed the prophets, and you build their tombs. Because of this, God in his wisdom said, ‘I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and others they will persecute.’ Therefore this generation will be held responsible for the blood of all the prophets that has been shed since the beginning of the world, from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who was killed between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, this generation will be held responsible for it all.” (Luke 11:47-51)
“Therefore, indeed, I send you prophets, wise men, and scribes: some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues and persecute from city to city that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. Assuredly, I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation. O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing. Look, your house is left to you desolate. For I tell you, you will not see me again until you say, ‘Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.” (Matthew 23:37-39) Emphasis added
Jesus called them “Children of the Devil”, “snakes! and brood of vipers!”
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Yet because I tell the truth,you do not believe me! Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? He who belongs to God hears what God says. The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.” (John 8:44-47) Emphasis added
“You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? (Matthew 23:33) Emphasis added
Exposing The Satanic Teachings of Babylon The Prostitute
I know your afflictions and your poverty—yet you are rich! I know the slander of those who say they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.” (Rev 2:9)
“I will make those who are of the synagogue of Satan, who claim to be Jews though they are not,but are liars—I will make them come and fall down at your feet and acknowledge that I have loved you.” (Rev 3:9) Emphasis added
The Prostitute Sits Over the Waters and Controls the Nations
The Beast (New World Order) coming out of the Nations (Waters)
Then the angel said to me, “The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages.” (Revelation 17:15)
According to Revelation 17:7-8, this beast existed before but by the time the Apostle John wrote revelations the beast had already been destroyed or wounded long time ago. How could be possible that this beast would be the Roman Catholic Church or the Islam when none of them existed before the Apostle John? Who is the beast then? Remember Nimrod and his (New World Order) in Babel? Let us review the story:
Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. (Genesis 11:1)
They said to each other, ‘Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.’ They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. Then they said, ‘Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth.'”
But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building. The Lord said, ‘If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.’
So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. That is why it was called Babel—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth.” (Genesis 11:3-9)
The Woman (Babylon the Prostitute) Riding the Beast
If the beast (New World Order) came out of the waters (Nations) and the woman (Prostitute) is riding the beast, then; Who is this beast? I will let you decide…
Could this apocalyptic beast that comes out of the water or nations be the European Union, the United States and all its allies and the corrupted United Nations all controlled by Israel the prostitute? Could this New World Order emerging from this financial chaos and political struggle be the last world power that Revelations 17 talks about? If that is the case, then this NWO beast will soon hate the biblical prostitute (Harlot) and eventually destroy it.
Then the angel said to me: “Why are you astonished? I will explain to you the mystery of the woman and of the beast she rides, which has the seven heads and ten horns. The beast, which you saw, once was, now is not, and will come up out of the Abyss and go to his destruction. The inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of life from the creation of the world will be astonished when they see the beast, because he once was, now is not, and yet will come.'” (Rev 17:7-8)
The waters you saw, where the prostitute sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and languages. The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute. They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to give the beast their power to rule, until God’s words are fulfilled. The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.” (Rev 17:16-18).
These are only facts for you to analyze and decide what to believe. After all, only time will tell.
