The Great Harlot

Friday, March 10, 2017, 7:07 p.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “Give Me Jesus.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Revelation 17 (quoting vv. 1-2, 6-7, 14-18 NASB).

Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and those who dwell on the earth were made drunk with the wine of her immorality.”

…And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly. And the angel said to me, “Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns…

These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.”

And he *said to me, “The waters which you saw where the harlot sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues. And the ten horns which you saw, and the beast, these will hate the harlot and will make her desolate and naked, and will eat her flesh and will burn her up with fire. For God has put it in their hearts to execute His purpose by having a common purpose, and by giving their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God will be fulfilled. The woman whom you saw is the great city, which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

Her Immorality

The United States of America is supposedly a sovereign nation, ruled by elected officials in fair elections where the people of this nation choose who their rulers will be. On paper that is how it is, but not in reality. The US government is not the real government of this nation. There is a secretive evil shadow government of the elite, powerful, and wealthy of this world which is the de facto government of these United States. And, our leaders serve them, not us, the people. And, probably most of our elections are not legitimate, but are rigged so that only those chosen by this shadow government are placed in positions of power and rule over this nation.

I believe that our nation was created for the sole purpose to bring about this rule of the beast, and to serve as the avenue by which this beast would rise to power and would take over the world. You can see that in the Great Seal of the United States with the All-Seeing Eye (the shadow government) hovering over the top of an unfinished pyramid. Our government, thus, has been like a right-hand man for this shadow (elitist) government in forcing or in deceiving nations and peoples to submit to the rule of this beast, which culminates in the New World Order, i.e. a one-world totalitarian rule, and also a one-world religion, it would appear.

The US government and military have created chaos, uprisings, terrorist acts, etc. in other nations, and in our own nation, too, in order to have an excuse to go into these nations to confiscate property, kill, destroy and bring each one of these nations under the rule of the New World Order Beast. They are the terrorists and yet they accuse others of being terrorists. They are the worst of the worst in cruelty, and yet they accuse other nations’ leaders of what they do themselves, only they are far worse. And, then they pretend to be righteous and humanitarian and “saviors” of the world. But, they are liars, deceivers, hypocrites, cruel, hateful, murderers of innocents - including Christians - thieves, and destroyers of nations.

So, when we read news stories about elections or about government officials in our nation or in any other nation, chances are that these present or new governments are not being ruled independently, but they are subjects of this beast New World Order, and they are not what is reported in the news media, which is controlled by the wealthy and powerful elite of the world who are the ones ruling the world. So, we can’t believe what we see or read in the news because it is fake news, or a large percentage of it is. Even our elections are fake stage productions cleverly acted out by skillful actors for the entertainment and distraction of the American people.

One day God is going to judge the USA for her crimes against humanity, and he will use the beast as his instrument of judgment on her. And, she will be stripped of her authority as a sovereign nation and she will be reduced to ashes (literal or not), i.e. she won’t be the wealthy and powerful nation she once was, but she will fall (See: Rev. 18 & 19).

The Lord gave me a picture of the USA being in a free fall right now and facing the reality of a serious and rapid decline (descent, deterioration). She will be open to public disgrace as her crimes, which she has mostly hidden from public view, will be uncovered and laid open for the world to see. The masquerade will be over, and we will all be able to see her as she really is. And, the beast will rule in her place, i.e. out of her ashes he will rise.

The Church

So, what about the church in America? Where does she fit into all this, or does she? Well, the vast majority of church congregations in America are committing adultery right along with the government. Via the 501c3 non-profit corporation status under the federal government of the USA, the church basically joined with this evil government in an unholy adulterous union, which is against God, because it replaces Christ as the true head. Not only that, but she incorporated government worship into her gatherings via the pledge (vow) of allegiance (fidelity) to the Republic with hand over heart, via the singing of patriotic songs, and via the honoring of our soldiers as heroes and as our saviors who are the ones keeping us safe from harm.

As well, she invited the world’s system (Babylon) into the church. Having incorporated the church under the federal government as a business of men, rather than treating her as a living organism with Christ as her only head, the church began to market the church as any other business, following human marketing schemes and gimmicks for how to grow the church (their businesses). So, she began to use worldly (even sensual) means and methods to attract the world to the “church.” Thus, she also diluted the gospel of our salvation in order to make the world feel more comfortable and at home in the gatherings of the “church.” What is wrong with this picture?

The church, thus, became emasculated (impotent), spiritually speaking, and the messages preached from the pulpits were now “talks” instead of sermons. They were about making people feel good rather than about teaching the true gospel of salvation which convicts hearts of sin, calls for repentance, warns of judgment, and promises hope and healing for the repentant. The Bible began to be replaced with marketing books or with books written by mere humans, frequently teaching humanistic philosophy, Middle Eastern religious practices, mysticism, the occult, and/or ecumenism or syncretism (the blending or uniting of various religions/beliefs). And “worship” services often became nothing more than Christianized stage productions for the purpose of entertaining the world.

Individual Christian lives also began to take a nose dive, as many individuals were being encouraged within the gatherings of the church to compromise with the world and to adopt the ways of the world in order to attract the world to the “church.” Many, many Christian leaders got involved in pornography or in extra-marital affairs, or in greed and corruption. And, so did their congregants. The church, thus, lost most of her testimony for Christ to the world because she had become one with the world instead of being separate (holy) unto God and away from the world. Sin was now placated or ignored, because they had adopted a “don’t offend anyone” stance, and so families and marriages were destroyed, and God’s people grew away from him and to the pleasures the world had to offer (See: 2 Tim. 3:1-9).

So, God has been calling out to his adulterous church, who has committed adultery with the Great Harlot, and he is calling her to turn from her sins and to return to him, to walk in obedience to him. He is saying to her that she must come out from her and be separate so that she does not share in the sins of the Harlot, so she also does not share in her punishment, for her sins are piled high (See: Rev. 18:4-5). The Harlot is not only a representation, I believe, of the US government under the influence and direction of the Elite of the world, but of the world’s evil system, as a whole.

Give Me Jesus
Oh, What Gladness!

An Original Work / December 2, 2013

Give me Jesus. He’s my Savior.
I’ll walk with Him in His favor.
I’ll abide in His love always;
Follow His ways to the end.

Jesus is the Son of God.
He died upon a cruel cross.
He’s forgiven all my failures
By His mercy and His love.

Give me Jesus – His compassion,
And His mercy; loving kindness.
Let Him teach me how to love Him,
And to please Him. He’s my friend.

Jesus died for all our sin
So we could have eternal life.
He will free you from your bondage
If you trust Him with your life.

Give me Jesus. Let me trust Him.
May I listen to His teachings.
May I follow where He leads me
In His service. He’s my Lord.

Jesus Christ will come again
To take His bride to be with Him.
Oh, what gladness; free from sadness
When I meet Him in the air.

The secretive shadow government that places its puppets on satan's strings to the leadership, not only in the USA, but in the other nations as well is called Illuminati. Think of the world as a big stage in the theatre with us sitting in the front seats, where the major events, wars, conflicts, are all being played out by this (not) secret organization within other organizations like Freemasons, Jesuits, Vatican, Rotary Club, Skull n Bones, O.T.O, Templars, and I don't know how many other organizations are involved in this great conspiracy, against the mankind, to keep people in the spiritual darkness, blindness (including christians), never to seek Yahuah and His righteous ways, but to be lovers of themselves, to make them "Do what thou wilt". Unfortunately their power is extended to the whole world. We cannot do anything to stop them, but we can expose the fruits of darkness.
"And he seized the dragon, the serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years,
and he threw him into the pit of the deep, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should lead the nations no more astray until the thousand years were ended. And after that he has to be released for a little while." (Rev 20:2-3)

Thank you for sharing @Sue J Love and for your informative contribution @Marek

Added to everything mentioned we also have the evil of companies like Disney, Dreamworks and Nintendo to mention a but a few shaping and moulding the children.

In Australia 'Safe Schools' is a seemingly innocent project to combat bullying. Peel back a couple of layers and its real intention is to introduce children as young as 5 to worldly gender issues, it's okay to be gay, it's okay to cross dress etc.

Yes the whole world is caught in this stage show

But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man
Luke 21:34-36

It makes my heart weep! I weep for the children! I have 13 grandchildren, and I am very concerned about all the ungodly influences they face every day, way far more than we ever faced in my generation. When I hear of children being abused or being exploited and taken advantage of I cry out to God. I know he has a day in store to judge all the evil in the world, and I do not want to hasten that day, but I get so heartsick over so much evil, misery, hatred, abuse and immorality going on in our world, and even within the church. Some days my heart is heavy with it all, but then I must lay my burdens at my Lord's feet, and trust him, and wait on him to act. I know he is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

Thank you so much for your comments. I appreciate them!

Thank you! Yes, there are many entities which are a part of this whole Satanic Beast system. And, many eyes are blinded to it all. I used to be. I used to be one of those who just believed what I was told on TV, not with regard to Jesus or the Bible. I knew the truth there. But, I was ignorant of all the evils in our government and within the church until the Lord Jesus began opening my eyes to the truth. I still don't understand it all, but I understand enough to get a good picture of what is going on. And, yes, we need to expose the fruitless deeds of darkness and we need to tell the truth.

Yes, the depths of satan are big. I would like to comprehend their way of thinking (rather not), they are indeed englightened but with great darkness, these societies/organizations prolly can be traced to the early Egypt. Strange how they include Messiah the son of the Most High in their teachings.

"The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief corner-stone." (Psalms 118:22)
This preciousness, then, is for you who believe; but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner-stone,”
and “A stone of stumbling and a rock that makes for falling,” who stumble because they are disobedient to the Word, to which they also were appointed." (1 Peter 2:7-8).

Thank you. I believe they include the Messiah as a deceptive tool to lure in unsuspecting Christians (or professing Christians) who think that, just because they mention Jesus, that this must be of God. So, we need to know the truth so that we can combat the lies of Satan with the truth.

Protestants generally are not critical of their old mother cult.
And Jews (& anti-Christ of all stripes) WANT all to think the Great Harlot was/is the Church.
Its real Christians who tell the truth about the Great Harlot of Rome.
The Vatican fulfillment of Rev 17&18 is God-given confirmation of the truth of Jesus Christ.
The Fulfillment reveals that such as the Inquisitions were not Christian activities,
but rather Papist activities. People need to know this

Though many modern alleged "Christians" are oblivious to and/or deny the following fulfillment, many others have seen the fulfillment for centuries.
It was a main battle-cry of the Reformation era Protestants and was common knowledge in Protestant circles until a few decades ago [as Protestantism lost it’s salty savor/corrupted].

One presents EVIDENCE in order to convince. Prophecy fulfillment is EVIDENCE.
Servants of Jesus seek to convince all that the NT is true, and Jesus is Lord.

Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show unto His servants ..." Rev 1:1

Servants of Jesus see the Vatican's perfect, unique, visible and verifiable fulfillment
of the Revelation's ch 17&18 description of the Great Harlot Mother is highly significant,
precious God-given EVIDENCE confirming the truth of the NT and Lordship of Jesus

Seeing the Vatican for what it is in the sight of Jesus sheds great light on past, present and future.

The following is a correlation of some of the Revelations descriptions,
and unique fulfillment found in well known facts re: the Vatican.

From chapters 17 & 18 …. IFO = IN FULFILLMENT OF

Rev 17:2 '.....with whom the kings of the earth committed immorality....'.
IFO 17:2 - Immoral ties of the Vatican with earthly rulers are presently and historically verifiable.

Rev 17:4 '.....and the woman was clothed in purple and scarlet...'.
IFO 17:4 - Find a picture of the Cardinals in full costume.

Rev 17:5 '.....Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots....'.
IFO 17:5 - The Vatican calls herself the 'mother' 'church' because the denominations
came out of her. The denominations share her perversion.

Rev 17:6 '.....drunk with the blood of saints...'.
IFO 17:6 - Study the inquisitions. A policy of murder & torture of real people,
carried out openly over centuries. Inspired and directed by men who claim to be
the unique and direct representatives of Jesus Christ.

Rev 17:9 '.....seven hills on which the woman sits....'.
IFO 17:9 - Rome is uniquely famous for its seven hills.

NO OTHER city nearly as famously nicknamed “city of 7 hills” as Rome has been since before NT was written.
For centuries the consensus of Roman Catholic and non-RC commentators was that Rome was the Revelation "city of 7 hills" ...
just RC commentators claimed it meant pre-Papal Rome. [many still claim this]
Naturally with a billion Papist in the world, the truth regarding the Great *****
is oft disputed and RCs are happy to claim the “city of 7 hills” is any city other than Rome.

Rev 17:15 '.....The waters which you saw where the woman sits, are peoples and multitudes and nations and tongues....'.
IFO 17:15 - The worldwide influence of the Vatican is obvious.

Rev 17:18 '.....and the woman you saw is the great city which reigns over the kings of the earth...'.
IFO 17:18 -The popes long ruled openly over the kings of the known world. Every king knew that if he bucked the papacy,
then the pope would - could - did encourage the citizens to revolt. This principle is still in practice today.

Rev 18:4 '.....voice from heaven saying: Come out of her MY people...'.
IFO 18:4 - Some R.C.'s belong to Jesus and will come out.

[they will also come out of the denominations] This is happening now, and has happened before.

Rev 18:12-19 ....describes the great wealth of the great *****.
IFO 18:12-19- Vatican's financial assets [open & hidden] are enormous.

The Revelation says there is a great harlot in the city of 7 hills. Lo and behold, there is.

Most commentators place the writing of the Revelation at around 90AD, well before the Vatican existed.
This visible and verifiable fulfillment is God-given evidence confirming the truth of Jesus Christ.

"Come out of her MY people..." [Rev.18:4]

Seeing the fulfillment is a faith strengthening blessing. Being in denial is not.
Seeing the Vatican for what it is in the sight of Jesus sheds great light on past, present and future.
