³The Great Whore and Judgement´ Let¶s take a look at the great whore and the judgement of her

... Rev 17:1-3 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: 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. 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. This is outstanding because it is foretelling one of the most dramatic judgements in all of prophecy that will come upon someone or something. ³Who Is the harlot´ the explanation is given in the very same chapter. Revelations 17:18 says clearly Rev 17:18 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth. The woman is a city on earth today. On the next clue. In verse one, it says that the woman sat upon many waters. All of the things in this prophecy are symbols that are interpreted for us. Revelations 17:15 tells us what the water is: Rev 17:15 15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. First we are told the woman is a city. Then we¶re told she sits on many peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. The explanation is simple. The woman is a city that is the headquarters for an international system that presides over peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. Rome, The City on Seven hills´ In verse 3 we can see the seven headed, then horned beast that was spoken of before. In this passage it says the beast had seven heads like before, but in revelations 17:9 says Rev 17:9

9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. The seven heads symbolize the seven mountains on which the city sits. Rome is known as the city of seven hills, and the proof can be found in Collier¶s encyclopedia volume 20. On page 168, it states that Rome is the city on seven hills. These hills are so famous they each have a name. This prophecy is amazing for it was written before Rome became the headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church. ³Does Rome Rule?´ In 1951, the Roman Catholic Church passed the cannon law, which stated that the Pope has the right to guide the political thinking of any and all it¶s members. It¶s been a long standing doctrine of the church that the spiritual always rule over the temporal. During the Pope¶s coronation ceremony, he is crowned King of Kings and Ruler of Rulers of the earth. It is believed that a time will come when Roman Catholicism¶s influence will grow to the extent that the Pope will rule as King of king¶s and Lord of Lord¶s. he is called Vicar of the son of God, which is inscribed into his crown Vicarious Fili Dei. Catholics fully believe he should and will rule the world when the kingdom of God is put into place on earth. ³The Woman Wore Purple and Scarlet´ Rev 17:4 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: Look at the color¶s the woman wears. The July 1, 1988 edition of the Criterion, a publication of the Catholic Church , there was an article names ³More then You Want To know About Cardinals´. The Cardinals and the Bishops are the ruling bodies of the church. The article said ³ Cardinals wear red, while non-Cardinal Bishops wear purple.´ Revelation 17:4 says she would be clothed in purple and scarlet. ³Drunken With The Saint¶s Blood´ Revelations 17:6 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. Why does it say she was drunken with the blood of Saints and martyrs of Jesus? Right now the Roman Catholic church claims 800 million adherents around the world. It has been estimated that 68 million Christians have been put to death at the hands of the Roman Catholic Church. During the middle ages, and the time of reformation, the pope had standing armies that he would send into different nations to fight against the enemies of the church. During the Reformation, within one six year period, 6 million died. The bible banned

When the Roman Catholic Church was in power, it was a crime within the Holy Roman Empire to translate the bible. The church held that the Bible was dangerous in the hands of the common man, and it was a crime punishable by death, to translate it into common language. There are several reasons for this. By keeping the people ignorant, the professional Clergy was able tot ell the people whatever he wanted then to believe. However, Charles Tyndale was a translator of the Tyndale Bible, believed all should be able to read GOD¶s word. This made the church so mad the tried him, and he was found guilty and burned at the stake. Why would the church be afraid of the Bible? By this time every major doctrine of the Bible had been perverted and changed. The church was full of statues, which was considered idolatry worship by God¶s word. People prayed to Mary and still do. They was Baptizing babies by sprinkling instead of full immersion. These doctrines are the exact opposite of the bible. ³The marriage of Communism & Catholicism´ this prophecy talks about the marriage between Catholicism and Communism. Most people are unaware of it. Noticed that the woman is sitting on the 7 headed, 10 horn beast in Revelations 13 spoke of. This is the symbol of the New World Order, One World Government of the Antichrist. Remeber the mouth of the Lion representing Britain, the feet of the bear representing Russia, the body of the Leopard representing Germany, the ten horned kingdom and the seven heads. It represents the powers that will rule the world. When u move from revelations 13 to Revelations 17 two things are added. In revelations 17 your told the beast is a scarlet covered beast or a red beast. The color red is the symbol of communism. The one world government will be a communist government. Most if not all European nations has socialist running their Government. If the beast is a world socialist government and if the woman riding the beast is the catholic church, it means there will be a coalition in the end time between Catholicism and Communism. This has already come. The Pope and Politics In 1962 pope John Paul XX111 was head of the Roman Catholic Church. He was 78, and had big dreams of controlling the Catholic church. He called a Vatican council the first in 400 years launched an offensive to bring departed Protestant churches back to Roman Catholicism. He also looked at the political scene, for Popes feel there is two swords in the hand of the Pope, one sword represents temporal power meaning political power and the other spiritual power. In 1942 6% of the world was Communist, by 1962 50% of the world had become Communist. He reached a conclusion the communism would take over the world. In 1962 he appointed a young diplomatic star in the Vatican by the name of Agostino Casaroli to forge a marriage with Communism. He was to start building bridges with Socialism, so the church could coexist with it till the political scene got better. In 1978 a friend of Pope John 23 named Malachi Martin wrote a book called the ³Final Conclave´. A conclave is meeting held by the prelates of the Roman Catholic Church to elect a pope. Martain was projecting the possibility of electing one pope. He stated the powerful forces inside the Catholic church believed thy must elect a pro Marxist Pope. Communism is growing rapidly and it¶s ideology was infiltrating non-Communist nations.

Socialism is infiltrating the highest halls of America and looks like we will have a one world Government. Within a matter of months the Pope died, Martin believed the next pope should get the church out of politics for it had corrupted the church, and the church needed to get back to it¶s spiritual base. He feared the Communist would turn on the church destroying it, and plunging the world into a new godless Dark Age. Rev 17:16 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. That means the ten horned kingdom, or the union of kings will become the most powerful coalition in the end time. They will form ties with the woman, the Roman Catholic Church, and allow her to ride their back for awhile. After the world Government is established the bible says they will hate the harlot, they will make her desolate, and naked and shall eat her flesh and burn her with fire. Malachi Martain from the standpoint of a political observer, believed what the scripture said would happen. When Pope Paul VI died they elected another named Pope John Paul I. He reigned for 33 days and he died in the middle of the night. The official story was he had a heart attack. There was books written claiming he was assassinated. One called ³Pontiff´ by Gordon Thomas and Max Morganwits. The other was ³In God¶s Name´ by David Yallop. Another book written by Malachi Martain called ³Vatican´. The pro marxist felt they was so close to the goal binding with Communism they took matters in own hands and killed him. Here is some proofs offered in the books. There was long rumored corruptions in the Vatican bank that controlled billions of dollars each year. The Italian Government was convinced there was corruption in the bank that was run by an archbishop named Paul Marcincus. He avoided arrest by staying in the walls of the Vatican, which is a sovereign state of Rome. Pope John Paul I ordered his removal. Also in Chicago there was a very powerful Roman Catholic prelate called Archbishop Cardinal Cody. In the 70's it was published in the news that Cardinal Cody was funneling 1,000,000 to a woman in Florida who was rumored to be his mistress. The day the Pope died he gave orders to discipline and remove Cody. Neither order was carried out. With death of the Pope another was elected. A polish cardinal named Karol Wojtyla. He was the first Pope ever from a communist country. Not only had he run a church in a communist country for 40 years, but also prospered. He knew how to get along with the communist. In 1979 he spoke before the UN and was speaking on wealth redistribution. This was Pope John II. In 1979 the pope John Paul II pulled his closest aids to him and offer the Soviets a solution to the problem they knew would bury them. He planned to give them a model, where religion, morality, and sociocultural life are totally detached and independent of political control. That model would be Poland, but would not only be a model for Soviets, but for Europe. By allowing the church to provide family and moral values it would motivate the workers to work. The pope told the Communist, that if they would cooperate with the church, the church would teach people when they worked hard, they serve their families, God and the church. The church would make socialism work. In the 1980's there was a revolution called the Velvet Revolution. It created the way for the fall

of the Berlin Wall on Nov. 9, 1986, and was the birth place of the New World Order. USA today ran a photo on the Pope and Gorbachev meeting together. The article said that both wanted to hasten the fulfillment of a United Europe. Later the article said ³ The church had been a behind the scenes advisor to Solidarity from it¶s inception.´ Mystery Babylon Rev 17:5 5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. The bible speaks of a woman called Mystery Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots. We know who the woman is. A mystery is something hidden. The center of Iniquity of our world has shifted from Babylon to Rome, which is the mystery Babylon today. To get this u need to go back to the tower of Babel. After the flood GOD told people to go out and multiply to replenish the earth. He told them not to dwell in cities for iniquity would abound from them living to close together. Humans felt more secure living close together. They wanted to build a tower to heaven, for if there was another flood they could run up in it and not drown. Babylon is the origin of man made religions, and this is why Rome is mystery Babylon. The Catholic church has changed every major doctrine in the Bible. To list a few the bible says we are buried in Christ in baptism, the Catholics began sprinkling. The bible says he that believeth and is baptized shall be saved and they baptize infants. It does no good whatsoever. A person must be old enough to hear what and believe the gospel and make his own decision to obey the gospel of Jesus Christ. Then the person can be baptized. They have also authored other doctrine of trinity; praying to statues, confessing your sins to men rather then to God when the bible says that Jesus Christ is our high priest and our mediator and the atonement for our sins. This is why Babylon is the origin of man made religion. The judgement of the Great Whore 2 Cor 11:2 2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. The church is a virgin bride waiting for the coming bridegroom. He will be the King of Kings, and we will rule and rein with him forever. Since churches are symbolized by women, God wanted to use the symbol of a harlot for a false church. The harlot is a compromised, unfaithful woman. When did the catholic church become the harlot? Judg 2:17 17 And yet they would not hearken unto their judges, but they went a whoring after other gods, and bowed themselves unto them: they turned quickly out of the way which their fathers walked in, obeying the commandments of the LORD; but they did not so. God always referred to Israel¶s worship of false god¶s as spiritual whoredom. They turned

quickly away from where their fathers walked and disobeyed the commandments of the Lord. When did this happen to the Catholic church? When the doctrine of trinity was adopted. They decided there were three separate persons in the Godhead, each of which was a God. As a result at the council of Nicea in 325 AD, the Catholic church changed the formula for Baptism that had always been used in the church from Baptizing in ³ the name of Jesus Christ´ to Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The Apostles always baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Acts 2:38 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 8:16, acts 10:48, and acts 19:5 tells of people being baptized in the name of the ³Lord Jesus Christ´. When the Catholic church made the change in 325 AD, there was 3 persons in the Godhead, this threw them into spiritual whoredom. Isa 45:21-23 21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me. 22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. 23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. When u are baptized in Jesus Name u have become the bride of Christ. When a woman is married she takes on the man¶s name. Gal 3:27 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is power in the name of Jesus Christ Acts 4:12 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Jesus said to his disciples Luke 24:47 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. The Protestants broke from the Catholic church. They never went back to the original baptism in Jesus Name, but kept the titles father, Son, Holy Ghost. Although they left the catholic church, they will be received back into the church without another baptism. This is the daughters of the

harlot. They follow and keep the ways of the Harlot. One World religion In 1993 there was a meeting held in Chicago called the parliament of the World¶s Religions. It was held for seven days. The purpose was to author the global ethic: a document that would establish a core value to which all religions of the world whether Christian or Non-Christian could agree. They wrote on this paper that ³we must sink our narrow differences for the cause of the world community practicing a culture of solidarity and relatedness.´ this means the narrow differences between Muslims and Christians, between Jews and Christians, and between Buddhists and Christians. Attending this meeting was Muslims, Jews, Christians, ( both Protestants and Catholics), Sikhs, Buddhists, New Agers, Wiccans and others. This was published in the National Catholic Reporter. 2 Peter 3:9 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. Also bible says most won¶t be saved Matt 7:14 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. Just because God loves people...don¶t mean they will be saved. John 3:5 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. It is time for us to preach truth. For truth is the only hope this world has. John 8:32 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. Where are We The Indianapolis Star on March 30, 1994 ran a headline ³Catholics, Evangelicals Affirm Ties that Bind.´ the sub topic read ³statement recognizes that all are Christians and seeks to end attempts to convert each other.´ leading evangelicals such as Pat Robertson, and Chuck Colson, signed this statement of unity with the harlot church. 2 months later June 17, 1994, this headline appeared in the Indianapolis star, ³Southern Baptist Embrace Catholics´. The Southern Baptist convention said, born again believers may be found in all Christian denominations and endorsed Baptist, Catholic dialogue. The brand new Catholic Catechism, the first one published in 400 years says, ³the plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first

place amongst who are Muslims. These profess to hold the faith of Abraham and together with us they adore the one merciful God, mankind¶s judge on the last day.´ According tot he Catholic church, it is no longer necessary to believe that Jesus is the Messiah. However, the bible disagrees Isa 9:6 6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Speaking of Jesus Acts 4:12 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

What should we do? Rev 18:4 4 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. This is the system of harlotry, spiritual whoredom, and compromise GOD hates. Rev 18:7-8 7 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. 8 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. When Jesus comes back it says Zech 14:9 9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
