The Seven Final Visions (1st) The wicked woman, Mother of Harlots (Rev 17:1-6)
17And 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:
I want to reiterate here just as a reminder, that the great whore represents the false Jerusalem and that the woman that was clothed in the sun with the twelve stars and with the earth under her feet, is the heavenly Jerusalem. The false Jerusalem is the institution of the beast, false religion, and Babylon.
There are many well meaning Christians out there that do not hear the allegorical (convey hidden meanings through symbolic figures, actions, imagery, and/or events, which together create the moral or spiritual meaning the author wishes to convey.) meaning of the law, so they are in bondage to the law, hence the sitting upon many waters. She sits upon God’s Word drawing confusion and deceit with the false ways about her, false doctrine, false theology, and misconstrued translations. If you cling solely to those things which are below then you are a child of Hagar and you would be blinded from the Jerusalem above. So the one is the covenant of bondage and the other is the covenant of freedom. It is the false Jerusalem or the religious institution that slays the innocent. Satan’s kingdom mindset is to destroy that which is heavenly, which he does by giving us something that seems to be true but in fact is false, aka religion.
Galatians 4:21 Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law? 22 For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman. 23 But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise. 24 Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the Mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar (Hagar). 25 For this Agar is Mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. 26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. 27 For it is written, Rejoice, thou barren that bearest not; break forth and cry, thou that travailest not: for the desolate hath many more children than she which hath an husband. 28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise. 29 But as then he that was born after the flesh persecuted him that was born after the Spirit, even so it is now. 30 Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman. 31 So then, brethren, we are not children of the bondwoman, but of the free.
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.
The kings of the earth are those who have set themselves up against God so they can have a kingdom here on earth. These kingdoms strive to cover up the truth of God. There are so many signs and symbols that are antichristian within the music industry, movies, even adds for products, as well as religion, that they use their secret language to speak to one another or show their commitment to the church of the illuminati and Satanist. There has been much infiltration into the church by the intermingling of paganism and Gnosticism into Christianity in the days of Constantine among other things.
They do things in secret that we do not hear of and much of it is spiritually idolatrous fornication among other things. Spiritual fornication is worship to another god other than I AM, The Creator God, The Father of The Christ.
They have changed the meaning of fornication to be sex before marriage and have pushed out the original meaning of spiritual fornication unto a false god which they do in secret worshiping their god. Which is just like in Lev. 18:21 where it speaks of passing your seed through the fires of Moloch which would be child sacrifices to this god, which is likely how abortion came into play. The fallen angels taught us how to kill a baby in the womb in the days of Enoch. So the fornication here is a spiritual fornication of worship to a false god in different forms which is idolatry as well. Religion is the foundation that this false god worship is built on. Idolatry seems to be laying low now days, people will put themselves as a judge before others, but the only thing they don’t point out or see is the idolatrous nature of worship and ritualistic happenings, because they are blind to it. They have been deceived so long that their ways are true to them and there is no possibility any other way could be right. It’s a false truth and much of the world has fallen under this deceit, even Christians. “Let God be true and every man a liar.”
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. 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:
Remember the wilderness is this age which is the 6000 years of our wondering. The woman (the church) sitting on the beast is Babylon. Here were it says that the woman arrayed in purple and scarlet, brings to mind the robes that they put on Jesus, in Matthew 27:28(red robe), John 19:5 (purple robe), and Mark 15:17 (purple robe).When Jesus was being mocked they put these things on Him. The gold is an image of the woman decked out in gold, this represents greed, excess of more than you need, and earthly riches. Rev 2:20 this woman was also depicted as Jezebel. Another thing this highlights for me are the colors of the Catholic Church, I’ve had people that are under that religion tell me that it was the first religion, I guess that is what they teach them, but that is not true. Catholicism came along as the scribes, Sadducees, and Pharisees started dissecting God’s Word and making their own way. This like all other religions is false, but it was the beginning of the deception of the God’s people on the Christian end. This is where Satan started to infiltrate the Church and since has created many different denominations within the Christian religion.
My explanation of my relationship with God is a commitment to my Creator and King, I am not religious. I’m very grateful for what He did to save us by sending His Son to live and die here for us. His blood covered our sin and is what gives us the chance to have life until forever. I have no rituals I do, no church corporation/organization that I am a part of any longer. I seek God on my own just like people did in the beginning. There are a group of others like me, but we are not a corporation. We do as those before us did, we seek Him and allow the Holy Spirit to guide us, just as Christ told us to do.
Acts 16:14 And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul. 15 And when she was baptized, and her household, she besought us, saying, If ye have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come into my house, and abide there. And she constrained us.
5 And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth. 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.
This speaks about an earthly perspective as a guiding light for those who have their hearts set on the things of the earth. This is followed with filthiness, and her fornication which is spiritual fornication. The mother of harlots is religion, because it is all worship, well to put it bluntly, Satan. If you don’t worship the Creator you worship the devil. Many people are blind to the truth, because they seek after the richness of the earth and not the riches and salvation of God.
Satan’s power was destroyed by the heavenly level meaning (the beast with the wound) but was established once again. When Jesus came and the Christ aspect of Him was revealed, Satan took a massive blow to the head and all he stood for, because the people could see the truth of God clearly. After Christ ascended to heaven he fought his way back, he killed off the Disciples and Apostles along with anyone else who would speak the truth which you can read about in Foxes book of Martyrs.
-An angel explains (Rev 17:11-18)
7 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. 8 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.
The people, who knew the mystery, saw right through the religious institution. They understood the Sarah and Hagar reference from the above verses about the two covenants. So when you think of it that way, the beast was no longer, because once you see the truth, you can’t be fooled or conquered again this is why they killed those who spoke the truth, or if they didn’t kill them, they had to find something that seemed lowly according to earthly standards, in them in order to conquer them. So the beast, the religious institution that relied on deceiving people into thinking that there is no heavenly level meaning, also put them in bondage.
The pit is a hole in the earth, and has to do with what comes out of the earthly teachings which is bottomless, because there is no end to it. If you look at science you see all the atheism that is there. Look at all the religions and you see the many denominations that have varied teachings which multiply over time. The reason the beast (religious institution) goes into perdition, is because once again in our day, we have uncovered the truth so now it once again is not and will never be again for those who know the truth.
Those who dwell on the earth are those whose thoughts and spirituality are solely focused on the earth, its material things, and teachings. These people are in awe of the things of the earth, they are not in awe of God Himself. In earlier reading we read that the beast was able to show wonders to the people.
If your name is not in the book of life, you are drawn towards earthly things and can’t see the truth. If you don’t see the heavenly meaning, then the earthly meaning will try to overpower that within you and lead you away from the truth. The meaning is still there weather you see it or not.
At the time of Christ and a short time after, the people where in the spirit, there was no need for the beast or the institution, the beast had no power. So those who are written in the book of life have overcome, and Babylon is fallen. It’s written into the scriptures to be enlightening and benighting at the same time. This is why we need the Holy Spirit and Her wisdom, we can’t make light of it without Her.
9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. 10 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. 11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.
There is a relationship between the number seven and the number ten. They are a kin to the 7000 years, but you have to really pay attention here. The remaining 3000 years, the horns being kings and the heads/mountains kingdoms. Through the first 4000 years you basically have Judaism and you see that Judaism has formed an alliance with the secular kingdom of Rome. They were concerned about the Romans coming and destroying them if they had allowed Jesus to live, but if they had allowed Jesus to live I don’t think that would have happened, but because they went along with it, it shows they have an alliance. The fifth head now has two horns on it which shows church and state. This had been broken, because the Romans in AD 70 even though it was just a little bit into the fifth millennium, it still counted as five which is Judaism all the way up to Christ and a little into that time. Those five are fallen, one is and one is not yet come; now there is a new entity which is Christianity which will also come into the Roman empire, so it has two horns because of church and state in this as well. It was the second portion of the five and then six, because the one was cut short (Rev 12:12 the devil knows he has short time). Jesus said unless those days be cut short, no flesh would be saved (Matt. 24:22; Mark 13:20). It has to do with the fall of the Jewish and Roman church and state being destroyed which would be replaced with Christianity which would grow into the Roman Empire through Constantine, which would become official. The woman sitting on the mountains is in the wilderness at this point, because they have killed off the Saints and infiltrated Christianity and made is something new yet they call it the same.
After all that, begins the initial stage of Christianity becoming part of the world. It gradually moves more and more towards the Roman Empire teachings and loses touch with the original meaning. As it grew more earthly, it become of better use to the beast and the beast gains power over the church because it no longer has the ability to sustain itself being that it has lost the power of the truth. In other words all the infiltration of the church and all the false teachers have pushed their rules, laws, translations, theology, and doctrines into it and scattered the truth for anyone trying to see past the earthly teachings because they look to man for guidance and not the Holy Spirit, it is invisible to them. Which is why, it takes the Holy Spirit to reveal to us the truth of God because the mystery has been hidden and covered over by earthly teachings all this time. This is how the institution survived and how the beast ascends out of the bottomless pit.
The eighth is a portion of the seventh which is still the institution. Rev. 20:7-10 You have to realize here too, that because the 5th head was cut off so quickly, the 6th beings in the 5th millennium as well as the 7th so there is some overlap there. So Judaism was the one that was cut off and Satan lost that time and Christianity came into play in the later part of the 5th millennium as well which is what caused the overlap. Which in turn killed the institution and so Satan came back and for the last 2000 years has overcome Christianity and deceived God’s people and made Christianity a part of the institution, and has become a church state system.
12 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. 13 These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.
The last three heads of the seven have two horns each, because they are not solely God’s people, but they are God’s people in alliance with the world. The religious leadership shared their power with the world itself. The first four horns were Judaism and once Judaism became an alliance with the Roman Empire, it added a horn to the head to represent church/religion and state/institution/world. Once Christianity began finding its place in the world, instead of fighting the world and the world fighting it, they came to an agreement and shared the power which continues for 2000 years which brings the other four horns and two heads.
The word received; in the Greek is lambano which means to take hold of. So they took the power of the kingdom by force. It’s not really their kingdom, but they did receive power (excusia in Greek – power to act, authority) or authority over this kingdom for a time. It says an hour which in the Greek is an hour, or limited opportunity to reach a goal. This is not really their world, its God’s world and God’s kingdom. You put it in another perspective; this would be like someone who is an acting manager, but not really the manager, so they don’t have power over the area permanently, just the people for a time.
The beast is at war against God and the beast wants to give these people what they want, worldly power, materials, and riches to name a few. They want to rule and the beast is their ticket. They have this power and they give it to the beast even still, which we see more and more now days with the signs and symbols in the entertainment world to show their allegiance to the worldly institution.
14 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. 15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 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. 17 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. 18 And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.
(Power – is dunamis [Strongs 1411] in Greek: (miraculous) power, might, strength) The truth is so strong and so powerful that it is a wonder that they can cover it up. They don’t actually have any real power and real strength; they have been given this by God.
These shall make war with the Lamb and the Lamb shall overcome them, in a sense this has already happened, but we have to understand what that means, because He has given them time and space to work out their wicked desires. The called and chosen are the ones, who spoke the truth, preserved the mysteries, and many of them gave their lives for having done so, and they were faithful in their suffering. Now for us coming today and picking up on these heavenly level meanings we are starting to notice the heavenly Jerusalem as opposed to the church of the world, by the world, and for the world, and the trappings of religion. To understand why there is so much antichristian sentiment and so much anger and hate towards true Christian teachings. The notions that Christians are bad and evil people, is partly from those Christians who are under bondage unawares of how their own false truth of Christianity is affecting the world around them, which has turned them into the same type of people that the other religions carry with them. The other part of why we are seen as bad is because on some level, these people know that we have the power of Christ within us to overcome them. Most of the hatred comes from a very dark and evil place, that likely they themselves cannot even explain, and this is due to the fact that the spirit of antichrist is over this earth.
Early on Satan recognized that he was defeated. When he set out to crucify Jesus, he set in motion that forever the logos would be spit upon in a bogus trial and tried before the people in a fit of rage and anger. As Jesus the man was murdered and killed in silence and buried under the earth, the logos itself would in like manner be spat upon by the religious institution, hung up for open shame by the religious institution, and then buried under the earth to indicate that the earthly meaning would obscure the logos for three days and three nights. When that happened, Satan’s fate was sealed, but he still tried to build back up the institutions. This is why you have the false apostles and synagogue of Satan trying to make what was new old again, by trying to cover up the light by over emphasizing the earthly levels. These kings and Satan’s kingdom is everywhere, it’s in the governing systems, education, and other religions as well as Christianity to mention a few areas. He has the whole world working for him, he has the people he has chosen and then he has his functionaries which are the naive idealist, and the whole rest of mankind that is either indifferent or are too busy with themselves and their worldly things, to do anything about it.
All these people who made an alliance with the beast in the one world government and one world religion are all united under Lucifer. They are going to regret being part of the institution, because they will receive their condemnation. They will eventually hate what has been, because all the things they learned and believed will be desolate and naked, they will realize they are all lies and see right through them. The same thing that gained them power on earth is going to cost them to lose time and they will be bitter about it. Jesus said “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world and lose their soul.” (Matt. 16:26; Mark 8:36; Luke 9:25)
(2nd) Seven Songs of woe to “Babylon” -The angel from heaven (Rev. 18:1-3)
18And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. 2And 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. 3For 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 heavenly teachings had come down so they lightened the earth. This is the second time we overcome Babylon with the glory of the truth, it’s preached to the people who are in alliance with Lucifer. When the fall of Babylon is spoken of before it is referred to as the great city, here it says Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, the second fallen, being the final time, and the first fallen being the first time it was overcome. The devils, foul spirits, and every unclean and hateful bird is a representation of Lucifer and his angels as well as his functionaries and those held at high standard by Lucifer like the priests, world leaders, and such.
In Matthew 13:4 the seed falling on the path and the birds coming and eating it up means all of these teaching will be gone. All these teachings and the Biblical Canon have become their tradition, but it has become their cage. This is why it’s God’s will, He is allowing them time to turn to Him or time to gain enough rope to hang themselves, it being their choice.
The institution/Babylon which is a one world thing with Lucifer is at the top, he being at the top, he causes people to become as wicked as they can become and are trapped in their own wickedness. There were many earthly riches that he laid at their feet to draw them in and to him.
-Second voice from heaven (Rev. 18:4-9)
4And 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.
One of the keys in the scripture that you will see is Come out of her, come out of the system, come out of religion, and come out of the world. What will people think when people leave the church in mass amounts? When the world starts to see the truth that the church is dependent upon the world, and the institution will collapse, and the whole world will see begin to see the truth. Once you see what she (the church) is doing, stop doing it, and if you did it before don’t do it anymore. If you give your money, your voice, or anything else to this institution, you need to stop doing it. You see the truth and that religion is blocking God and ignoring the saints and persecuting those that are trying to bring the truth. If you do not step out and overcome the institution, you will become worthy of her plagues.
5For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. 6Reward 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.
Their sins have reached to heaven, meaning that first of all the heavenly level was subverted. God has given the kings of the earth power to rule until His words are fulfilled. When you start seeing the judgment with your spiritual ear and eye, which is happening now, we are able to see the truth of the mystery of God. Now we are going to start seeing the judgment of the remembrance of all the evils on the church and Babylon as a whole.
501(c)(3) tax exempt status requires certain sacrifices such as remaining passive to government or political agendas. This is a corporation under the subtitle of an “organization”. These institutional churches sell out to Babylon USA…a type of kingdom.
Jesus said in Matt. 22:20 And he saith unto them, whose is this image and superscription? 21They say unto him, Caeser’s. Then saith he unto them, render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
If you take this a bit deeper, we are children of heaven emerging out of the children of the earth. Repay to the kings their due, and Babylon her due, so to give God what is God’s, you have to give God you. Caesar/Babylon will get what is coming to her and you will have to come out of Babylon in order to give God you. It says to reward her double as she rewarded you, and Babylon lied and covered up the truth, these people sat in God’s seat as if they were God. They hid the truth knowingly most of them, gave their power to the beast knowingly, and came against God knowingly, just like Satan. Since they took the truth away, once we reveal it they will die. Since she hid the truth in order to try to destroy you, you revealing the truth will destroy her. She has been repaid what she has given and basically killed herself. They pretended to love Jesus, to substitute themselves as the truth, and they created a false truth in order to rule for selfish purposes, and are in turn all Judases.
The elect will come out on the earth and revealing and exposing them for what they truly are. We can be an agent of God’s retribution, we just have to stand strong in God’s truth and Babylon will fall once more. If you read and see this stuff you are just as responsible as I am, to share it and use the power God has given you to share the truth.
7How 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. 8Therefore 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.9And 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, 10Standing 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.
Babylon killed the saints, destroyed the truth, took the glory for themselves, and they see themselves as sitting on the throne calling themselves kings and queens. God’s judgment will come down on them. God is strong and we are strong through Him, because we have been given a voice to speak and been given the teachings of the truth from the angel that came down.
When they start seeing the people leaving the church in masses, the people will convert and understand, or they will face God’s wrath. God is telling you to come out of her and give her torment, which is the truth coming out and them being revealed.
-The merchants (Rev 18:11-16)
11And the merchants of the earth shall weep and mourn over her; for no man buyeth their merchandise any more:
The merchants are the leaders of the church, remember when Jesus got angry in Matt. 21:13, John 2:16, and Mark 11:15-17 for them making God’s house a market place. In the Gospel of Thomas 64 it speaks of those that spurned God’s gifts because they had to plan a wedding, someone owed them money, or I bought a house. Then it says, “Buyers and sellers will not enter the kingdom of God.” People who see church as a business and that God is something to exploit, they live wealthy lives, and they are everywhere. Those who have accepted that lower level meaning and lusted after the riches of this earth. We that know the truth will no longer buy their goods, because we have been given the ability by the Holy Spirit to see the truth and we have seen right through all their lies.
12The 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, 13And 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. 14And 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. 15The merchants of these things, which were made rich by her, shall stand afar off for the fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16And 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!
The gold of the merchants is not the gold of God, the gold of God has been tried by the fire of this age and is the Word of God that has been made clear to us, which are those who want to see the truth as it is and not what was given to us covered in lies. This is why the streets are made of Gold, it’s perfect clarity, we know where and why we are stepping forward and what we are stepping into and we see things all the way through.
The church is supposed to be in charge of the souls of men, to lead them in the direction in which they are supposed to go, but this church has been sold out to the earth, because of money hungry, power hungry, God hating people who cover the truth for their own selfish reasons. These people and leaders of the false church want earthly gold, silver, and they don’t want pearls of truth. The fruits that they lusted after departed from them, because they use people like you and me to acquire these goods.
-The sailors (Rev 18:17-20)
17For 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, 18And cried when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, What city is like unto this great city! 19And 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.20Rejoice over her, thou heaven, and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.
This is speaking of the Christian church, and the ships in the sea are the various churches. Rejoice over her, the apostles and prophets this is pointing this is the religious institution, because these people were killed by this institution. God is urging them to come out of the church and reject it and if you are leading the church, you need to pick whose side you are on. In Rev 6:9 these were the same souls that were crying out from the alter for their vengeance.
-A mighty angel (Rev 18:21-24)
21And 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. 22And 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; 23And 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. 24And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
The millstone being cast into the sea, the sea being God’s people, is spoken of in these verses. (Matt. 18:6, Luke 17:1, and Mark 9:42) Matt. 18: 6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. When He speaks of the children here, He is referring to the elect. It is the children and the elect that receive the message of His truth in its simplicity. It is better for the millstone to be hung around his neck and be cast in the sea before he could do the damage that has been done, because he is going to have to face judgment for the damage that was done. The great city being thrown down, this is the complete and utter destruction of the institution. So the beast that is carrying the woman (Babylon) and the false prophet is thrown into the lake of fire. In the millennium no one will be fooled or ruled by that false teaching and the institution. At the point in which you overcome Babylon, the false church and false teachings will never be heard again. Jer. 25:10 Moreover I will take from them the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride, the sound of the millstones, and the light of the candle.
The sorceries are the deception of poisonous drugs and witchcraft. Witchcraft is the way you use the lower to obscure the higher and you invoke the evil.
