Revelation 17:1-2 The Reformation Mark
17 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 prostitute who sits on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth committed acts of sexual immorality, and those who live on the earth became drunk with the wine of her sexual immorality.”
The Antichrist’s name is not in the book of Revelation, but his spirit and message are. Many Christian churches and believers are waiting for the Antichrist will reveal who he is. Revelation 17, October 31, 1517, is recognized as Reformation Day to the reformed Christians. The reformed Christian makes a declaration to live by God’s word and His word alone. The reformers, all say the papacy church, the Roman Catholic Pope is not the authority of Christ on earth and its doctrine is false. The Waldensians Christians declare the Pope as the Antichrist, long before Martin Luther, John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, and Jan Hus all said the same thing. Unlike most modern churches, the Holy Roman Catholic was a worldly government power. Even in modern times, Vatican City is the capital seat of the Holy Roman Catholic church and most countries have an Embassy in Vatican City, and like if the Catholic church as ambassador, the Pope, and its priest are it. The prostitute in Revelation 17, or like other translations will say the harlot that is over in many waters is a false church, that has many members. If any church denomination has the most members the Catholic church is the most at an estimated 1.2 billion. Many believers are looking forward to a new world order when the government leaders of the earth will combine powers and be one nation under God, or the beast, their god the devil. The book of Daniel’s prophetic word said nations will not join, cause they are too weak, so that false teaching will not happen.
Daniel 2:41 And in that you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, it will be a divided kingdom, but it will have within it some of the toughness of iron since you saw the iron mixed with common clay. 42 And just as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of pottery, so some of the kingdoms will be strong, and part of it will be fragile. 43 In that you saw the iron mixed with common clay, they will combine with one another in their descendants; but they will h not adhere to one another, just as iron does not combine with pottery.
Since religion is a driving factor with the people of the world, worldly leaders will use religion to please the people of their nations. So kings, presidents, emperors, dictators will work side by with the Pope, that is why embassies are in Vatican City. The Pope recently has had meetings with worldly leaders, and religious leaders of all kinds of faith. The meeting was to discuss global warming and how to save the world from self-destruction. The Pope knows the Christian Holy Bible, and he also knows the world cannot be saved because the word of God will destroy it. The world is in the final stages of where the devil and sins have dominion. False religious leaders nailed Jesus to the cross, and they will help Him return to pass judgment. My dear friends, are you following the truth of God’s word, or do you trust the prophetic lies of a priest who is trying to save what God says is doomed? Can mankind save what the Lord will destroy? God bless you, Jesus the Redeemer l loves you and so do I. His bondservant.
Ezekiel 16:35 Therefore, you prostitute, hear the word of the Lord. 36 This is what the Lord God says: “Because your lewdness was poured out and your nakedness uncovered through your obscene practices with your lovers and with all your detestable idols, and because of the blood of your sons that you gave to idols, 37 therefore, behold, I am going to gather all your lovers whom you pleased, all those whom you loved as well as all those whom you hated. So I will gather them against you from every direction and expose your nakedness to them so that they may see all your nakedness. 38 So I will judge you as women who commit adultery or shed blood are judged; and I will bring on you the blood of wrath and jealousy. 39 I will also hand you over to your lovers, and they will tear down your shrines, demolish your high places, strip you of your clothing, take away your jewels, and will leave you naked and bare.
