But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
“The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, yet is.
“Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.
“There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, and the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time.
“The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition.
“The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.
“These are of on mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.
“These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him re called, chosen, and faithful.”
Then he said to me, “The waters you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues.
“And the ten horns you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.
“For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled.
“And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” Revelation 17:7-18
We are back once again everyone and hear we are with the meaning of both the scarlet woman and the scarlet beast. As this scripture says the beast rises out of the bottomless pit and will go to perdition. The people of the world whose names are not in the Book of Life, which is the Lambs Book of Life, will marvel at the beast. It then tells us that the beasts seven heads represent seven mountains on which the woman sits upon. They also represents seven kings.
We then learn from John that five of these seven kings have already fallen. The sixth king is already here and the seventh has not yet come. Once the seventh comes he will only be able to continue for a short time. This will then bring the beast in as an eighth king himselft and again will be going into perdition.
Next we have the beasts ten horns. These horns represent ten kings who have yet to receive a kingdom. They will however receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. Thee ten king/horns will be of one mind and give their power and authority to the beast. They will then go and make war with the Lamb. But they will be overcome by the Lamb as He is the, “Lord of lord and King of kings.” The Lamb will have with Him at this time His chosen and faithful.
Now we come to the woman. The harlot. That is one things she represents as she is seen sitting on many waters. These waters are representations of peoples, multitudes, nations and tongues. The ten horns on the beast will then hate her. They take out that hate by maker her desolate. Stripping her naked. Eating her flesh and burning her with fire. this was put into hearts by God so that they will fulfill Gods pupose, being of one mind and giving their kingdoms to the beast until Gods word is fulfilled. The woman is also the symbolic representation of the great city of Babylon which will rule over the kingdoms of the earth.
My fellow believers in Christ Jesus. We only have one more chapter before we reach the prophesied return of Christ and the complete destruction of the antichrists army. Until that time though, we still have the fall of Babylon and the world morning for the fall of Babylon. The finality of its fall and heaven exulting over Babylon’s fall. Until then though don’t forget to leave any questions you have in the comments below and as always continue your work to bring souls to God. Until next time everyone. God Bless.
