People's Bible Notes for Revelation 17:16


Re 17:16 The ten horns . . . shall hate the whore. At a later period still, the ten horns shall hate and desolate the harlot. We have seen this fulfilled in the fact that the kingdoms that have been developed from these have in the last three centuries either become Protestant, or have broken with Roman rule. The historical facts given under the seven vials show how they have waged war on Rome.

    WOW, WOW, WOW,: she is very good /great at what she do, so she knows how important it is to seduce / run-a-trick on each leader of every country /nation thereby uses the kings / leaders, elected officials, to artfully lead or force many to slaughter... WOW, WOW, WOW!

    This is a great chap. God deals with the ten kings to work with the devil for 1 hour to kill the great whore, just b-cuz devil wanted to be the alone object of worship, God has used many people thru out bible jus like Jehu Elijha sent him to Jerusalem to kill all baals ppl. he tricked them into filling the church w/ all baals ppl. once in his men locked em in and killed them all mission complete.

    Back during the Tower of Babel days there religion was mystery Babylon they went on to name the city after it.There’s 2different religions; new Jerusalem and Babylon the sun worship. When they say Babylon it’s not literally Babylon it’s the religion,same w New Jerusalem. The women is portrayed as the church calling her the harlot/whore means she corrupts the church and the word. Rev 17 points 2 Rome hope this helps

    Ask God for understanding of the scriptures, he will give it to you, if you will humble yourselves to him, and ask him. Exodus 31:3 - Exodus 35:31 - Job 32:8. Amen!

    Ann, Patricia, Bud, Truthseeker; Ye do err not knowing the Scriptures nor the power of God! Because you have itching ears!..the angels neither marry nor are given in marriage! "Who makes His angels SPIRITS, His ministers a FLAMING FIRE." It is a simple trick of the devil, that you all you ought to be aware of, and not so sillily misled after fantasy, when you have the Word of God and His Spirit!

    Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! Lucifer is called a son, a male, not a female.
