Chapter Nine – Babylon the Great

 October 3rd, 2010 | Author: Douglas

It has today become an acceptable expression to say: “this or that is the mother of all ——-”, with the intended meaning that it is the greatest object, subject, experience or occurrence known of.

So, it must be accepted that Babylon the Great, being the mother of the harlots and of the disgusting things of the earth, is the greatest harlot and also the most disgusting thing that exists on the earth.

Now, who is Babylon the Great?

Her description has been given, but reference is made about her “works” and the “fruit” she bears. So we will have to examine those aspects to arrive at an answer.

Revelation 17:6 states that she enjoys the drinking of the blood of the holy ones and the witnesses of Jesus. From this Scripture it must be accepted that this harlot concentrates on persons that have the desires to be involved with all the aspects that have to do with Jehovah God and His Son, Jesus Christ. This harlot has the lustful desire to destroy those persons.

Further, she is the mother of all the disgusting things. So we must accept that everything that is disgusting is against Jehovah God and His Kingdom. So the harlot wants to destroy the holy ones, and witnesses of Jesus, and is in direct opposition to Jehovah God. She is also thus responsible for ALL the problems that the humans and this world are experiencing. So she must be a creation of Satan the Devil.

Billions of fairly bad persons just sneer when Jehovah God, His Son, Jesus Christ, or religion in general, is spoken about. They do not, however, live with the desire to destroy Jehovah God’s people. Unfortunately for them, most of them unwittingly make up the “soldiers” that will be later mentioned. So we must be talking about an organised group, or groups, that make up this harlot. But this group, or combination of groups, cannot be very large or very dangerous by themselves. In comparison to the total population of the earth they are too small.

It is then imperative that they recruit “soldiers” to achieve their goal. The only way this is possible is by lies, deception, confusion and instigation. They, therefore, have to spread lies, deception and confusion about Jehovah God and His Kingdom, His Son, Jesus, and the truth of what their father Satan did, and is still doing. The “soldiers” are from the billions of fairly bad persons that mainly live for the desires of the flesh, and also, therefore, listen to what “tickles” their ears, or what they “need” to believe.

Another aspect is that she, Babylon the Great, is referred to as the mother of all harlots. That must mean that she commits fornication. Fornication occurs when a person is not married to another, but has sexual relations. Sexual relations are the ultimate intimacy that occurs between two persons. Figuratively, “sexual intercourse” would mean the “ultimate” intimacy between two parties. So we figuratively have a group of persons, figuratively not married, having figurative “sexual intercourse” with another group of persons.

This Babylon the Great is thus very involved in religion, and is against Jehovah God. This then must mean that BABYLON THE GREAT IS FALSE RELIGION IN ITS ENTIRETY. Who else would be able to deceive the billions of fairly bad people? Now we need to find out who the other party is. We know that the Bible refers to the other party as the “Wild Beast”.

Who, then, is the “Wild Beast”?

The “Wild Beast” is also prepared to fornicate, so it has bad connotations as well. The term “Wild Beast” normally instils the impression of a vicious and ferocious wild large animal ripping the flesh of another being apart. What do the military weapons do to all flesh, humans and animals? They rip the flesh apart! But the weapons are mere, but very dangerous objects that can do nothing, without the persons to operate and control them.

Governments, controlled by politicians, kings or dictators, are supposed to control everything in their various areas, so we must assume that these persons control military weapons that are also very large in their destructive powers. Therefore, then, we must accept that the governments and all other rulers are the parties that the “Wild Beast” is made up of.

It is common knowledge that throughout history, the rulers of countries have been influenced, and openly endorsed and egged on to perform deeds contrary to Jehovah God’s laws and desires by leaders of false religion. This still happens today. Look at your television and see the number of clergy involved in politics, and many also holding political offices. I am quite sure that we have now identified the “WILD BEAST”.

Surely it is then necessary to find a religion that is not part of Babylon the Great and also does not participate in the world’s rulership. The true religion would participate in being a member of Jehovah God’s nation, the “Spiritual Israel”, and also exposing Babylon the Great for what she is and does!

Let us see what the Bible Scriptures below state as to who Babylon the Great is:

Revelation 17:5

And upon her forehead was written a name, a mystery: “Babylon the Great, the mother of the harlots and of the disgusting things of the earth.”

Revelation 17:6

And I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of the holy ones and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. Well, on catching sight of her I wondered with great wonderment. (The “wonderment” is most probably the appearance of Babylon the Great. On the outside: Pious, caring, helping the poor, being normally adorned in the wealthiest of clothing, etc. But on the inside: Vicious, dishonest, having destructive agendas, etc. Sometimes it is astonishing that the general population seem to be so utterly naïve. The churches and most other false religion structures have cost billions, and the poor that actually live and walk in the shadows of those structures are starving and the poorest of the poor. The nations asked for an earthly king to rule over them instead of Jehovah God. And today they are still none the wiser as to the mistake they made. I see in a newspaper report that the marriage of a prince is estimated to cost R304 000 000.00 in this year of 2011C.E. The marriage of such a prominent ruler will be ordained, condoned and promulgated by religious groups, groups that should be crying for the assistance of the poor and starving. Babylon the Great and the Wild Beast are going to have a Big Splash with plenty of fornication being committed, and all at the expense of their blinded “soldiers”.)

Revelation 17:8

The wild beast that you saw was, but is not, and yet is about to ascend out of the abyss, and it is to go off into destruction. And when they see how the wild beast was, but is not, and yet will be present, those who dwell on the earth will wonder admiringly, but their names have not been written upon the scroll of life from the founding of the world.

So, to finalise: BABYLON THE GREAT is the combination of all false religion, and the WILD BEAST is Satan the Devil with all his human governing allies that control the billions of blinded humans that are not doing Jehovah God’s explicit will to the best of their ability, although many have been conned into believing that they are doing just that.

Religion and Politics are supposed to stand on opposite sides of the spectrum, with Politics ruling the people and Religion counselling the people and giving them a hope of everlasting life in Jehovah God’s Kingdom, which is soon to be installed.

The fact that they are “fornicating” is proof that they are not supposed to even think of “marrying”, and are doing the deed of fornication which is punishable by annihilation for the both of them.

Total annihilation is facing both of them shortly when Jehovah God takes back His rulership.
