Discussion for Revelation 17

  • 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.

    Micyest: We will meet Christ in The Clouds: 1Thessalonians 4:16-17. The very Last Battle Will be all His: Revelation 20:7-9.

    i don't know i always thought when they hit the final bomb that Christ would put his foot on mount Olive and we would all be caught up with him..., ww3

    The 7 mountains with kings are the 7 nuclear empowered nations that will use the harlot, nuclear missile, to fight in war, the beast. The horns are nations without nuclear weapons in treaty with the 7 to fight. Threat of nuclear war rules over all the kings of the earth and all kings desire nuclear weapons.

    Armageddon means the gathering. Revelation is revealing or to make known. They, those that have gone to Jerusalem that Are worshippers of Satan whom have gathered there will be flattened at the 7th trump after the two witnesses lay dead in the street. Rome as nothing to do with the Revelation that will happen in the end times except they as all churches, 99 percent of churches will follow Satan.
  • SabbathkeeperandWife
    Armageddon is a word that means " unveiling" and not some crazy end time future thing. We who are alive will be caught up with those who "sleep" in Christ (dead!). This will happen at last trump at last day just like the Word says. God's people suffered thru persecutions and will either suffer, following His commandments or opt out and receive the mark. We WILL suffer like all the rest. It's ok!
