GOD'S JUDGMENT ON THE GREAT WHORE

Chapter seventeen of Revelation is informing us that many religious teachers committed fornication when they took over the reins of religion and gave their followers false interpretations. They falsified the word of God into a false doctrine and enforced others to believe it and to accept it as it was wrongly understood and taught literally by themselves, disregarding the symbolic language that it was written in.

Then one of the seven angels that held the seven bowls came out and spoke to me and said, "Come, and I will show you the judgement on the great whore, enthroned above the ocean. The Kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and on the wine of her fornication men all over the world have made themselves drunk." Revelation 17 : 1-2

We will soon discover that the great whore, mentioned in chapter seventeen, is not a reference to a woman at all. She symbolically represents the word of God which has been corrupted by those who have taken control of the interpretation of religion. The ocean symbolically represents a diversity of people who speak various languages. As a matter of fact, we have already discovered in a previous chapter that the symbolical word ocean represents a great multitude of people who speak a great variety of languages.

In the Spirit he carried me away into the wilds, and there I saw a woman mounted on a scarlet beast which was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns. Revelation 17 : 3

The woman, the corrupted word of God, sits on a scarlet beast. The colour scarlet is the spiritual colour of many world religions. The seven heads and ten horns have being mentioned in earlier chapters. The seven heads represents seven dominions and the ten horns represents the ten kings that was also previously mentioned. There is no doubt in my mind that the above prophecy is definitely labelling the Ummayyads who were the Kaliphs and the Sultans of Islam. Revelation is telling us that they were false spiritual teachers who had wrongly taken over the reins of that religion.

The woman was clothed in purple and scarlet and bedizened with gold and jewels and pearls. In her hand she held a gold cup, full of obscenities and the foulness of her fornication; and written on her forehead was a name with a secret meaning: "Babylon the great, the mother of whores and of every obscenity on earth." Revelation 17 : 4-5

Purple is the colour of royalty. So the woman, the corrupted word of God, utilized the colour of royalty as a fašade. The golden cup, that the woman held in her hand and which was full of obscenities, represents the past corruption of religion. The corrupted word of God given to the people of the earth by religious teachers has now being given the name of Babylon the great. The prophecy also states that they are the abominations of the earth.

There are some religious teachers who are very unspiritual. An example is what they have done to the women in Afghanistan and in other countries as well. They have taken away any rights that women may have had at one time. Many of those false teachers often accomplish what they want by the force of arms and all in the name of religion. If they are not careful, they could destroy themselves with conflicts followed by more conflicts. It has been prophesied in the wonderful writings of Revelation, recounted to us by John the Divine.

The woman, I saw, was drunk with the blood of God's people and with the blood of those who had borne their testimony to Jesus. Revelation 17 : 6

The corrupted word of God, the woman who is drunk with the blood of the saints, represents some leaders who murdered many true followers of the prophet Mohammed. They also murdered many Christians who strongly believed in the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Another corruption of the word of God has been found in the above text, the word Jesus should not appear in it for the simple reason that it is message that is addressed to the teachers of another religion and Jesus was not the Revelator of that religion. You were promised to see for yourself the words which were added by the first Christian writers, this is one of them. There will be many others that will be presented to you in the forthcoming presentations.

As I looked at her I was greatly astonished. But the angel said to me, "Why are you so astonished? I will tell you the secret of the woman and of the beast she rides, with the seven heads and the ten horns. The beast you have seen is who once was alive, and is alive no longer, but has yet to ascend out of the abyss before going to perdition. Those on earth whose names have not been inscribed in the roll of the living ever since the world was made will be astonished to see the beast; for he was once alive, and is alive no longer, and has still to appear. Revelation 17 : 7-8

We previously discovered the mystery of the woman who represents the word of God which has been falsified. The seven heads of the beastly system are the seven dominions of the Umayyads and the ten horns of leadership represents its ten kings. The beast who was alive and is alive no longer represents the Umayyads, the Caliphs, who were replaced by the other beast who followed on their footsteps and who came out of the abyss, the Abbasid.

"But here is the clue for those who can interpret it. The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits. Revelation 17 : 9

There has been much speculation amongst biblical scholars concerning the meaning of that biblical verse. Some teachers from one of the protestant movements are saying that the seven hills mentioned are the seven hills of Rome. Those who have made that statement have done so without knowing the true meaning of the seven heads which represents seven hills. This chapter of Revelation is mentioning the seventh major world religion, not the sixth major world religion which was Christianity.

The following words : mountains, hills and valleys are also symbolic words. When they are utilized in holy books, it often represent various people, nations, religions or institutions. In this case, the seven hills mentioned represents the world's seventh major religion that God gave to the people of the Arabic peninsula. It is sitting on the seventh hill, meaning that it is the seventh major world religion that God created when he motivated the prophet Mohammed to give new teachings to the people of the Arabic peninsula.

They also represent seven kings, of whom five have already fallen, one is now reigning, and the other has yet to come : and when he does he is only to last for a little while. Revelation 17 : 10

The five kings which have fallen represents five dominions :

1. - The Roman Byzantine dominion around Damascus (Syria and Palestine)
2. - The Dominion of Arabia.
3. - The dominion of Egypt.
4. - The dominion of Africa (Libya)
5. - And the dominion of Andalusia (Spain).

One is now reigning was Persia. And the other which has yet to come is Turkestan-Transoxania which soon fell also. Those five Dominions perished exactly as prophesied in the writings of revelation. Those sayings are the proof that the seven hills mentioned represents the seventh major world religion. Therefore, this chapter only defines some past happenings of that religion.

As for the beast that was once alive and is alive no longer, he is an eight - and yet he is one of the seven, and is going to perdition. Revelation 17 : 11

The meaning of "that was once alive" is a reference to the beastly leadership under the Ummayyads. It means that the Caliphate survived until the year 1924 at which time it was finally abolished by the Turkish National Assembly after the revolution which was carried out by the young Turks.

Therefore, the Caliphate went to perdition at that time. It was an eight and yet it was part of the seven because it had the same name, Caliph. But the prophecy says that for that reason he was actually considered as being one of the seven. In other words the Caliphate had become meaningless and was no longer serving any useful purpose for that religion so the Turkish parliament abolished it.

The ten horns you saw are ten Kings who have not yet begun to reign, but for one hour are to share with the beast the exercise of royal authority upon the beast. Revelation 17 : 12

John is once again explaining to us certain events that would occur on earth. The prophecy states that the ten Kings, the ten horns of leadership, would share power with the clergy for a period of only one hour.

In the first century AD, the Umayyads did not yet have a Kingdom and since one hour of biblical prophecy is part of a day, it represents a year of prophecy. In the first century after the coming of Christ, the Bani-Umayyads reigned over the religion for a total period of 89 years which is described in Revelation as one hour, meaning for a short period of time.

For they have but a single purpose among them and will confer their power and authority upon the beast. Revelation 17 : 13

The dominions and rulers of that religion gave power to the beast. Those rulers were the Caliphs who changed the religion into a false political system. The beast under the leadership of the Caliphs became no better than the lowest of lowest, which is the beast itself. As human beings they abased themselves to the level of the beast. Therefore, they fell into the pit of error and of complete spiritual obscurity.

They will wage war upon the Lamb, but the Lamb will defeat them, for he is Lord of Lords, and King of kings, and his victory will be shared by his followers, called and chosen and faithful. Revelation 17 : 14

Every new Revelation has a new lamb, this particular lamb is said to be the King of kings and the Lord of Lords. That description belongs to Jesus Christ. But it may have been added in by the first Christian writers who re-wrote the bible. The proof is that this chapter concerns the seventh major world religion. What the above prophecy may be saying is : when the Spirit of Christ returns he would defeat the clergy. He would do this with the sword (his mouth) which are his words.

When we say that Christ returns, we are really saying : when the Holy Spirit returns and speaks through another earthly Manifestation. We have already discovered that the same person cannot ever return again, it is always another person that God manifests himself through.

The last part of the prophecy is very interesting because it says that his followers, who have been given the name of chosen and faithful, will share his victory. In the past, we were told by our teachers that God's chosen people were the people who belonged to the Jewish religion. That is not so because God has named the Jewish people, in previous chapters of Revelation, as the redeemed and not as His chosen. When God delivered a new Revelation to the Jews, the prophet Moses was the new Revelator. When Christ came, He was the new Revelator and the Christians became God's chosen, etc, etc.

Therefore we have no choice but to say that the people who have accepted Christ's new teachings, at his second coming, are the only ones labelled as the chosen ones. They have chosen it so and that is the reason why they are called by that title. They have chosen to accept the new Messenger and the new teachings that He has given to humanity. How many people are willing to step out of their old family religion for a while and take the time to investigate God's new teachings which He has already given to our world and thus become God's chosen?

Christ, at his second coming, was given great opposition by the clergy in a similar fashion that the young messenger from Shiraz was also opposed and executed by the leaders of that state in 1850. It also means that the young messenger of Shiraz was preparing the way for Christ to return. Then we have to say that Christ has already returned to this world with the clouds of human doubts and obscurities. The majority of the people of this world have yet to recognize him because many are looking for the return of the man known as Jesus and should have been looking for the Spirit of Christ to return. Spiritual entities have never returned in the same bodies as before because it is obviously an impossibility. We must search for another person who gives new spiritual teachings to the world.

The "Return" of Christ is most certainly the third woe although Revelation does not say so directly. I strongly believe that we are supposed to discover it by ourselves.

It is very interesting to note that the lamb will also be waged war upon by the clergy but the "Return" of the King of kings and Lord of lords will defeat them with the words that comes out of his mouth. Christ did warn us in the 24th chapter of Matthew that he would return to us like a thief in the night. He also said that, unless we were watching for him, we would miss the moment of his coming. Is it not what has really happened?

The Apostle Matthew has forewarned us of that forthcoming event in his biblical writings. He warned us that Christ would return to us during the night, meaning during a dark period of time in man's affairs, and that he would leave this world still unrecognized by the majority of its people.

Those warnings are very well recorded in the 24th chapter of the Apostle Matthew, which nobody seems to be paying any attention to. Many religious teachers still think that they are capable of recognizing Christ at his second coming. They also say that he will come amongst them and say I am the returned Christ. Wishful thinking! It is quite obvious that they are still asleep and that they have yet to remove the veil from in front of their eyes,

The Jewish Rabbis did not recognize Christ when he came the first time. He was one of them, teaching them in their own temples and synagogues. This time it is the Christian priests and ministers of various sects and denominations who have failed to search for him.

Then he said to me, "The ocean you saw, where the great whore sits, is an ocean of peoples and populations, nations and languages. Revelation 17 : 15

The last verse needs no explanation as it gives its own answer. It is repeating what has been said all along which is that the word ocean is symbolical. It represents a multitude of people who speak a variety of languages and who come from various nations on earth.

As for the ten horns which you saw, they together with the beast will come to hate the whore: they will strip her naked and leave her desolate, then they will batten on her flesh and burn her to ashes. For God has put it into their heads to carry out his purpose, by making common cause and conferring their sovereignty upon the beast until all that God has spoken is fulfilled. Revelation 17 : 16-17

The ten horns of leadership represents the ten Kings who were called Umayyads. The prophecy says that they would eventually hate the woman who is called the whore. It also says that they would destroy her and condemn her with the fire of their words. God has put into their heads to carry out his purpose, which is to destroy her. Therefore they are fulfilling God's will by destroying the false teachings which have been named as the whore. They will give full dominion to the beast until all prophecies are completely fulfilled.

The woman you saw is the great city that holds sway over the Kings of the earth." Revelation 17 : 18

The woman, who was previously named as the whore, is also named as the great city. She is mystery Babylon and she has corrupted the word of God with many of the earthly kings. It represents the false spiritual teachings given to the people of this world by its spiritual teachers, mainly by its clergy.

THE FALL OF BABYLON THE GREAT

Part of the text pertaining to Babylon the great may be found in chapter fourteen of Revelation. Here it is.

Then another angel, a second, followed, and he cried, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who has made all nations drink the fierce wine of her fornication!" Revelation 14 : 8

For those of you who have already read the clairvoyance of Nostradamus, you already know who Babylon the great is. It represents some of the clergy who have the world over led many nations astray through their false religious teachings. For example : in some countries, the women of that country have absolutely no rights. That is definitely not what God's holy books are supposed to be teaching? God has created man and woman to be equal to one another and to complement one another. Women are human beings who have been created as an equal to man. Therefore, they should be given the same rights as the men are given in all countries of this world.

Yet a third angel followed, crying out loud, "Whoever worships the beast and its image and receives its mark on his forehead or hand, he shall drink the wine of God's wrath, poured undiluted into the cup of his vengeance. He shall be tormented in sulphurous flames before the holy angels and before the Lamb. The smoke of their torments will rise for ever and ever, and there will be no respite day and night for those who worship the beast and its image or receive the mark of its name." This is where the fortitude of God's people has its place - in keeping God's commands and remaining loyal to Christ. Revelation 14 : 9 to 14 : 12

There has been another corruption of the word of God. The last paragraph mentioning Christ does not belong for the simple reason that this chapter is not referencing Christianity.

God says that He will destroy the false teachings, only the false teachings given out by religious teachers. He tells us through one of his angels that he will avenge himself against those teachers. They will be tormented in sulphurous flames which could mean that conflict after conflict would be their torments.

Chapter eighteen is about to reveal to us that the false spiritual teachings, Babylon the great, are about to be destroyed.

After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven; he came with great authority and the earth was lit up with his splendour. Then in a mighty voice he proclaimed, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling for demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit, for every vile and loathsome bird. For all nations have drunk deep of the fierce wine of her fornication ; the Kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and merchants the world over have grown rich on her bloated wealth. Revelation 18 : 1-2-3

The falling of the false teachings of yesteryears is highly proclaimed by an angel coming from the heavenly world. This actual event occurred in 1844 when the young messenger of Shiraz prepared the world for new teachings that would be given us. False teachings were destroyed when God presented new ones to the world.

Michael of Persia followed the Messenger of Chiraz and gave the world the necessary new teachings so that mankind may continue to advance forward spiritually and in an orderly manner. So Babylon the great has already fallen. The old teachings were replaced by new teachings that God sent to humanity and which have already made their way all around the planet.

Those new teachings have already being accepted by millions of people in numerous countries including the vast country of Russia and yet the majority of the people of this world are still ignoring them. Many are still refusing to investigate them because they are afraid to step outside of their own family religion which is thousands of years old and which has most probably gone astray a long time ago.

Then I heard another voice from heaven that said; "Come out of her my people, lest you take part in her sins and share in her plagues. For her sins are piled high as heaven, and God has not forgotten her crimes. Pay her back in her own coin, repay her twice over her deeds! Double for her the strength of the potion she mixed! Mete out grief and torment to match her voluptuous pomp! Revelation 18 : 4 to 18 : 6

She says in her heart," I am queen on my throne! No mourning for me, no widow's weeds!" Because of this her plagues shall strike her in a single day - pestilence, bereavement, famine, and burning - for mighty is the Lord God who has pronounced her doom!" Revelation 18 : 7- 8

Many people are now told to come away from the false teachings given to them by their religious teachers, unless they wish to share in all of her plagues which are soon forthcoming. Her plagues will strike her in a single day, meaning that in less than a year of prophecy will those false teachings be destroyed. They will be completely destroyed and will never reappear again on the surface of this planet because God Himself has pronounced the doom of those false teachings.

The Kings of the earth who committed fornication with her and wallowed in her luxury will weep and wail over her, as they see the smoke of her conflagration. They will stand at a distance, for horror at her torment, and will say, "Alas, alas for the great city of Babylon! In a single hour your doom has struck!" Revelation 18 : 9-10

The fate of the false teachings will be decided in a single hour, which is a very short period of time in history. Horror will be showing on the faces of all those who once belonged to the fold. They are those who label themselves as religious teachers. The Kings of the earth, meaning the heads of States of many countries, will lament over the death of those teachings.

The merchants of the earth also will weep and mourn for her, because no one any longer buys their cargoes, cargoes of gold and silver, jewels and pearls, cloths of purple and scarlet, silks and fine linen ; all kinds of scented wood, ivories, and every sort of thing made of costly wood, bronze, iron, or marble; cinnamon and spice, incense, perfumes and frankincense; wine, oil, flour and wheat, sheep and cattle, horses, chariots, slaves and the lives of men.

"The fruit you longed for", they will say, "Is gone from you; all the glitter and glamour are lost, never to be yours again!" The traders in all these wares, who gained their wealth from her, will stand at a distance for horror at her torment, weeping and mourning and saying, "Alas, alas for the great city, that was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, bedizened with gold and jewels and pearls! Alas for in one hour so much wealth should be laid waste!" Revelation 18 : 11 to 18 : 17

All the people who did business with the religious clergy and with religion will be devastated because they will no longer be capable of doing business with them. The reason given in the prophecy is that the false religious teachings will be destroyed because they have been leading people astray. The false teachings will be destroyed exactly as predicted in the writings of Revelation. In other words, exactly as it is been described to us by John the divine.

Then all the sea captains and voyagers, the sailors and those who traded by sea, stood at a distance and cried out as they saw the smoke of her conflagration; "Was there ever a city like the great city?" They threw dust on their heads, weeping and mourning and saying, "Alas, alas for the great city, where all whose ships at sea grew rich on her wealth! Alas that in a single hour she should be laid waste!" Revelation 18 : 18-19

All the world traders are now amazed to see that the false teachings have been destroyed in one short hour which is a very short period of time. The great city mentioned represents the teachings of religion itself. The city of God, which is often mentioned in holy writings, represents the teachings of a new religion that God has given to mankind and which the majority of the people of this world have yet to discover.

But let heaven exult over her ; exult, apostles and prophets and people of God; for in the judgement against her he has vindicated your cause! Revelation 18 : 20

God's judgement upon those who falsely teach religion is that their teachings shall be destroyed never to re-appear again on this planet.

Then a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone and hurled it into the sea and said,"Thus shall Babylon, the great city, be sent hurtling down, never to be seen again! No more shall the sound of harpers and minstrels, of flute players and trumpeters, be heard in you; no more shall craftsmen of any trade be found in you; no more shall the sound of the mill be heard in you; no more shall the light of the lamp be seen in you; no more shall the voice of the bride and bridegroom be heard in you! Your traders were once the merchant princes of the world, and with your sorcery you deceived all the nations." Revelation 18 : 21 to 18 : 23

The mighty angel symbolically hurls Babylon, the great city, into the sea. Meaning that the false teachings given out by religion will be scattered amongst the people of humanity who are the symbolic sea. Thus, the destruction of the false teachings of religion becomes final and no more shall such false teachings ever deceive the people of various nations on our planet. The great Spirit says that its lamp, meaning its religion, is forever doomed.

For the blood of the prophets and of God's people was found in her, the blood of all of those who had been done to death on earth. Revelation 18 : 24

John says that they, the clergy, are responsible for the death of many of God's prophets and of many of God's chosen people. He also says that the shedding of blood was found within the clergy itself. As we have already discovered, the state of Persia was responsible for the death of the young Messenger of Shiraz who was given the title of the Door in biblical prophecies. The state of Persia listened to their clergy telling them what they should do to people who belonged to another religion.

These chapters of Revelation have most certainly not been easy to comprehend, have they? God wanted us to know the turmoil that would be caused by the religious clergy. Don't get me wrong, I am not trying to downgrade one religion against another. No, I merely attempted to present valuable explanations to past religious happenings. All religions, lamps, are good. They all present the Word of God to humanity. Revelation is trying to tell us how each and everyone of them went astray. Most of them re-wrote their Holy books to suit themselves with the exception of the Moslem religion. In this new Revelation we have been told that its original writings are still intact although most of its text has yet to be understood. Christianity and many other world religions cannot make that claim. Many religions cannot prove that their holy Book is still genuine. You have been given many concrete proofs that many of those writings have been re-written.

We shall discover the meaning of the wedding supper of the Lamb in the following presentation. It is the day whereby God re-manifests Himself through another earthly Messenger and gives mankind new spiritual teachings. The Lamb represents the Holy Spirit who animates God's new Manifestation. He is given great opposition by the clergy when He presents new teachings to the people of our world. The people of this world having become overly attached to the teachings of old religions, they are refusing to investigate the new that God is presenting to them.

The wedding supper of the Lamb
