Who Is The Whore Of Babylon

Do you understand Revelations? I want to talk to someone who understands all (or at least some) of this mysterious book. I love it! For instance, what, or whom, is the "Whore of Babylon"? I was told by somebody that it is America?

I can't tell you 100% right now, but the way I got it this has to do with churches bring false gospels.The churches are refer to as a women,and this has to do with the great triblation period.Without the verses to back this up right now, I don't want to go any farther.
---RICHARD on 8/10/10

Revelations 17:1-19:3: Adultery / fornication / and harlotry sometimes takes the place of idolatry, greed, or apostasy. It is the Lords intention that all receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and to serve him, but to not do so is a type of fornication. She is the mother of all apostasy, non Christians, and all filthy ungodly works. She especially represents those who oppose God in verse 17:6, 18:24, 19:2 "drunken with the blood of the saints and" "the martyrs of Jesus." 17:18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
---Glenn on 8/10/10

At that time, the word Babylon was a substitution for Rome. And until recently, most Protestants thought that the Popes' were Anti-Christ, and therefore that particular woman. There is a Roman Catholic tradition that says that the Antichrist will become Pope as well. Some people believe that there will be some future world controlling power based in Rome. Revelations 14:8, 16:9, Chapters 17 and 18.

Try going to a "Revelation Now seminar" by Jac Colon. I have gone to a lot of Revelation meetings over the years and he is really good. He only uses scripture. You can look on line to see where the seminars are being held and or getting the information. It's awesome.
---Rose on 6/26/10

The 18th chapter of revelation to which you are speaking is a reference to the harlot Jerusalem, "SHE", who is being judged for her spiritual apostasy which the book of revelation is all about: see rev. 1:3. The plagues described in the book were coming very quickly, in fact in chapter 17 the angel tells us when the book was being written: during the reign of the sixth emperor of Rome, Nero.The actual culmination of these events occurred in A.D 70 just as Christ said it would: see mark 13, Luke 21, Matthew 24.
---keith on 6/26/10

So Right.
The roman emperor with nero & the great crusades ( they wanted their own following which is Man-made the rcc the mother apostate church that is here Prov.14 v 12, Matt.15 v 9 & came from here 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14 - 15 ) went to kill off the Saints in the early Apostolic Pentecost Church. Thank God they didn't get them all, I am 1 of those aft these yr's gone by & there's even more today of the early Church Saints that was born on the day of Pentecost according to Mark 16 v 16, Acts 2 v's 37 - 41 which Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19 - 20.

I don't use Rev. Reverend - Reverence belongs to God only because he has Not failed, man has failed.

\\In the new is the earthly woman married to Christ they are responsible for spreading gospel. Noted the word "SHE" refers to woman or in BABYLON in revelation. The church become a prostitute at the same time they are not true preaching the word of God. go and search Babylon at si\\

Jerusalem sits on seven hills, Rome on nine.

The book of Jewish belief is called the BABYLONIAN Talmud. It's the written form of the teaching of the Scribes and Pharisees who rejected Jesus, and whom He condemned as "fools, blind guides, and whitewashed tombs."

Do the math.
---Cluny on 4/23/10

When you study old testament prostitute refers to Jerusalem or. Israel of Judah. They are married to Christ earthly and they are responsible for spreading gospel.

In the new is the earthly woman married to Christ they are responsible for spreading gospel. Noted the word "SHE" refers to woman or in BABYLON in revelation. The church become a prostitute at the same time they are not true preaching the word of God. go and search Babylon at site
---rosalie on 4/21/10

this is a difficult subject, and it's called a mystery for a reason, which is why i rule out the most common opinions

i believe the harlot is a spiritual city, that is outside of, and in rebellion against God

it's called babylon because thats where it began with the tower of Babel,and people who rebelled against God despite what happened after the flood, and later the title of the harlot was passed down to israel/jerusalem, and later rome and eventually all the apostate world whether it be rome,israel,usa or europe
we can also notice that all the most powerful rich countries today are western ones with christian roots
---glen on 4/21/10

WE MUST be careful. Protestants often argue it is the RCC, others argue it is America - but from what I see, the imprications are not strong enough to prove it.

Moderator: you can use Rev 17, 18, but there I do not see enough to demonstrate it is Rome. The hills can possibly be used, but the 'blood of the saints' and the five kings who have been both do not fit well. Possible, yes, but certain no, or to me, even likely, no

Maybe God will show me to be wrong, and then I will have to admit to Him that I made a mistake

PS: I am not RCC
PPS: Revelation is always difficult to interpret
---peter3594 on 4/20/10

The Mystery Babylon is believed my the majority to be America.

Some try to say, well the woman sits on 7 hills and 7 hills is descriptive of Rome. The 7 hills is descriptive of the BEAST that the woman sits on. The woman and the beast are two different things, because the beast will hate the woman and leave her desolate.

Ephesians 5:31,32

[31] For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
[32] This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

The great whore (Mystery, Babylon) is the fallen Christian church that has taken gifts, bought and sold the word and Spirit and loved this world.

Please quote me chapter and verse where the RCC is implicated as the whore of Babylon. Black and white, please, not what YOU think it refers to.

Moderator - Revelation Chapter 17 and 18 are used. Whole books have been written on the subject. Someone here may have the time to answer some questions, otherwise obtaining one of those books and making your own decision would be a good use of your time. An indepth history lesson of the Roman Catholic Church gives more information also.

Mima, you failed to remind us that you were inspired by the H.S. when you issued your statement.
---A_Catholic on 2/13/06

This is not the first time that the RCC has been labelled as the whore of Babylon. I feel grossly insulted by such a low accusation from supposedly fellow Christians and I find such accusation as very un-Christian. Christ built His Church on LOVE - attacking others is not love at all.

Moderator - A_Catholic please don't be insulted by that person's comment. Christians have made that statement for hundreds of years and it isn't intended to be an insult, but a wake up call to study the scriptures of Revelation Chapters 17 and 18 more closely.
---A_Catholic on 2/13/06

Freedom of learning leads one to the conclusion that the Roman Catholic Church is the whore of Babylon. The false prophet will be a pope. Rome (Mystery Babylon) will be destroyed by nuclear attack by the 10 members of the former Roman Empire, which in turn will force the beast(the Antichrist) to take up residence in Jerusalem. There to stand in the temple, declaring himself to be God.

What is the root word of ecuminism?
---Mary on 2/13/06

The ecumenical apostate religion, in my opinion, is in reference to the one world religion of the last days. Led by a group similar to the ecumenical counsel we see today in the Roman Catholic Church. Remember, the great whore sits on seven heads or mountains ... Roman is the city of seven hills. Home of the false religion, one world religion.

JESUS is talking about himself.

John 10:11-16 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd, and hnow my sheep, and am known of mine. 15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. 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.

catholics justify their pope and church upon Peter's revelation of "thou art the christ". Jesus' response of "upon this rock I'll build my church" is Jesus telling us He will build his church upon THAT REVELATION, that He is the Christ, the son of the living God not on Peter, the man who had the revelation. Jesus continues to build his church on people who get that revelation.Not on Peter, Pope or Catholic Church.
---lisa on 10/9/05

Emcee ... no, not a worldly shepherd ... Christians do not need that.

Although the Mderator may not agree, I believe there is a world-wide body of Christians ... rich in varying traditions and practices and even doctrine ... but it is not the Roman Church, nor is its shepherd the Pope, but God Himself, who as Father, Son or Holy Spirit, is Maker, Shepherd, Saviour, Comforter & Guide.

Moderator # 1 Maybe the first part did not get through first time I feel half caught out. because one of the dict definitions is "catholic" But then one of the dict defs of catholic is "pertaining to the worldwide body of Christians" and this of course should include all of us of all or no denominations. (IT is the RCC which has high=jacked the word to mean just their brand of Christianity to the exclusion of all others) So ecumenical means involving all Christians.

Moderator - All Christians back to the Roman Catholic Church. It's a term associated with The One World Religion in the Book of Revelation.
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/9/05

Moderator #2 It is in this sense that the word ecumenical is generally used in the UK ... all Christians working together to spread the Good News, but each able to retain individulity of style, and of some doctrine. The RCC is often very reluctant of such cooperation, which is why I said they were not ecumenical. It is interesting that follwoing through the dictionary definitions can end up with diametrically opposing meanings of the word ecumenical.
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/9/05

Nellah ... I don't see how the RCC fits your definition ... surely it is the very opposite of ecumenical?

Moderator - Alan, please give the definition of ecumenical and see if you can then answer your own comment.
---alan8869_of_UK on 10/9/05

According to my prophecy Bible the whore of Babylon is worldwide, ecumenical apostate religion of the last days. I too enjoy Revelation.

I believe the Great Whore will (and already has started to) prostitute the Gospel. It is the prostitution, or the abomination of our Lords' Gospel. It is/will all be in the name of "Tolerance". The tolerance of sin, instead of sinners! Ie Islam, ie. Homosexuals ie. Christian-like cults.
All for the self edification of the RCC!

When I hear the Pope referred to as the Holy Father! give me a break, NO ONE is Holy BUT GOD! end of Story! Call no one but Father, to our Wonderful Father in heaven, the Pope is no ones Father, just a human, voted into a job, only the true annointing of God upon any of us is evidence in our lives of Christ in us. As for anyone denying a couple to marry, regardless of denomination, is plain arrogant! Better to marry, period!!! with Christ in between, not a man made church rule!
---bethany on 9/19/05

I once heard someone say a Pope must be single as Peter was,(a Catholic told me)Oh really? How come Jesus healed Peter's Mother in Law???

The Pope, referred to as 'Vicar of Christ', Excuse me? Vicar, comes from the Greek word 'Vicarious' which means 'substitute', NO human is a substitute for an Omnitiscient, Omnipresent, Omnipotent God. The pope is just an ordinary, sinful, fallen creation of God, as am I. He was 'voted' into power - fully human, in need of the same salvation God afforded me.

Christ is the head of the church. Ephesians 1:20-23 5:23 ...even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. 24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ...25 even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26,27
32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 1Colossians 1:12-18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 24

Moderator - No where in scripture did Christ nominate Peter and call it the RCC. The RCC didn't even exist as such until the 4th century. Please don't go by RCC tradition, but instead use the Bible.

NVRBarbara:I acknowledge that Jesus is the rock The cornerstone but on the eve of his depature he entrusted his doctrine& teachings to Peter who was also chosen by the father for this he was the first Vicar & represantative of Christ & of HIS church,or band of followers, the name has no relevance as this Title was conferred much later.BUT has stood the test of time 2005 years later.

Moderator - If that is the case, why did Peter only write a few books of the NT and Paul wrote most? Jesus stated that Jesus is the rock not a person. God alone is God not a church or person.
---Emcee on 8/23/05

emcee, You are counting the Christian church as the protestant church, but they are not the same. The protestant is as you say a break off, but the Christian church is not, the 1st Christian church was started in Antioch in Turkey, and not in Rome. The true Christian church is Jewish at it's root, and not Roman. There are true churches of Christ, and all other religions including catholicism are not it. Please read Acts 11:26.

2 - If you look at the world around us, its degenerating into chaos, Christians are not spared either, at church we sit side by side with homosexuals and talk of rights, so you see many churches have their hands tied so in the end times the church will be present but would be very much perverted, pushed to accept and live side by side with sin because of RIGHTS.

1 - I have been following the arguments regarding this question and it seems most of you do not understand Revelations. People try to understand revelation in terms of this world but its all in vain. If you read carefully John was taken in the spirit not flesh, his visions were spiritual. I was once told that The 'WHORE' is America but its a lie.

Backing up a bit Emcee..Eloy speaks of spiritual circumcision. You can find another reference in Col.2:11. "circumcision made without hands."

In Christ's day, the 'church' was the people who gathered together to pray and learn,they didn't name a building 'a church' or denomination, just as it should be today. Where in the bible do get that Peter was a pope? That word is not in the bible.
Christ is the 'ROCK' of salvation, not mortal man.
---NVBarbara on 8/22/05

Moderator:We acknowledge The term Pope as being Christs Representative on this earth Jesus prclaimed him(PETER) as his successor.If as you say that the term Pope was introduced,by Constantine this does not change the fact that Peter was the first REP pope or any terminology that may be appropriate,Peter was buried IN Rome& his remains are there to this day.

Moderator - Jesus proclaimed that Jesus Christ is the Rock of the church not a person or Peter. It is a known fact the bones of Peter aren't in Rome as they were found several years ago outside of Rome. All scripture both OT and NT call Christ the Rock not Peter.

Moderator - As the Vicar of Christ, the Pope says he can't do any wrong, but you are correct many Popes have been some very wrong things. Peter wasn't a Pope. The first Pope began with the pagan Constantine in the 4th century.
