This religious woman spoken of in revelation 17;3-6 is referred to as Babylon the great ,(the world empire of false religion)she is also the mother of the harlots because all the individual false religions in the world including the many sects in christendom are like her daughters , imitating her in committing spiritual harlotry ,she is also the mother of disgusting things ,in that she has given birth to such revolting offspring as idolatry,spiritism, fortune-telling, astrology,palmistry, human sacrifice, temple prostitution, drunkenness in honor of false gods ,and other obcense practices.true blood said:Paul warns of the coming time of the end in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12.
Rev. 17:6 gives info about a super-church that will be able to command the devotion of hundreds of millions. This church will be in alliance with the political powers of the Middle East. The unholy alliance is portrayed symbolically in Rev. 17 descibing a wicked harlot riding a scarlet-covered beast. The harlot is a symbol of religion and the scarlet beast represents the political power of the Mediterranean in the end time.
Although the idealism of Communism does not seem to be foretold in the end time, the Communist dedication to atheism, materialmism and military power it spawned will prepare the way for the final form of world religion. The harlot church will be destoryed and burned with fire by the 10 kings associated with the Mediterranean dictator.
Daniel 9:27 says the last 7 years leading up to the second coming of Christ will begin with a peace settlement. The details are not specific in regards to the covenant to be made but it says it will be an attempt to settle the Abab-Israeli controversy. In Daniel 7:7 and 24 a symbolization of ten horns on a beast signifies the last world empire, the Roman Empire in its final form. Common Market of Europe? Who knows... but it will be such a confederacy that will have the economic and political power necessary to control the Mediterranean.
Basicly we need to see an Arab leader emerge from the Middle East, Osama? Who knows... Israel's peace plan. This leader and Israel will broker a deal, the scriptures are clear about that. There will be a deal to allow Israel to contine and renew her religious ceremonies, including rebuilding the temple and reactivation of Jewish sacrifieces. However it will be a peace made to be broken. The peace will only be observed for 3 and 1/2 years. The peace is basicly a bid for world recognition by the new leader of the Mediterranean Confederacy. Could this be a terrorist organization?
