Discussion for Revelation 17

  • Anyt Hing
    I tender my comment that the harlot of Revelation 17 is the Roman Catholic "church" and of course any organization or people that join her. They have already martyred 50 million true believers. That's enough for them to be drunk on it and the Vatican and co have not apologised for it nor cancelled their anathemas against any christians outside their fold.

    10And there are seven kings: -Confederate U.S. States and states rights platform. 11And the beast -Japanese empire- that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition. 12And the ten horns -Southen U.S. transplant auto corporations - which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

    in this chapter we learn the controlling power that the women has over the beast is removed... then the power of 10 angry kings plus the power of the beast is united as one... 10 angry kings plus the beast turned on / attacked the women... and they shall (1) make her desolate and naked, and (2) shall eat her flesh, and (3) burn her with fire... the great city or women is... WOW ! WOW ! WOW !
  • Mari
    Oops I meant my statement to be for chapter 18. Its still Rome though. Verse 6 here says so much.
  • Obbie Beal
    In this chapter she 'seduced the all the leaders' of every country (greed, lust of the eye, lust of the flesh, pride...) and 'the people joined the party with their leader's' ungodly actions. Now it is time for everyone to give an account of his or her action. WOW ! Thank God for for the Saving Power through the Blood of Jesus Christ. WOW!
  • Yarah Sakal
    Chapter 17 is revealed to us so we would have a detailed understanding of who the anti-Christ is. Daniel spells out what the beast line is in detail, Revelation 17 points out the final kingdom as well as the final kings of that kingdom. Investigate the Lateran Treaty of 1929 and then look at the popes from that point on in relation to the Angel's interpretation of John's vision.
