Chart: The Judgment Of The Harlot Babylon
of Babylon represents Corporate Christianity and those who
support her. This includes all denominations who have accepted tax
favors from governments, built elaborate church buildings on tax-exempt
properties, who have used tithes and offerings for anything other
than support of ministers and the poor, and have allowed government
to disenfranchise their own members. These have stopped following the
teachings of Christ in favor of gaining wealth and aligning
themselves with the world.
The seven mountains
represent the Seven Churches of Revelation Chapters Two and Three.
The five fallen
"kings" represent five of the Spirits before God's throne
that inspired the first five of the Seven Churches. These five
churches have fallen into apostasy. In the image above they are
represented as empty thrones.
throne represents the Spirit of the Church
of Philadelphia, the church of brotherly love. From this church
come the people represented by the number 144,000 - the first fruits
of Christ. These are they who follow the Lamb withersoever He goeth,
and work in His Temple night and day.
The throne on the
right is reserved for Jesus, the Spirit of the Church
of Laodicea. Laodicea is made up of people of all denominations
of the world. Most of these people have backslidden into materialism
and earthly comforts.
horns of the Beast represent the Ten Commandments. They have one
mind. They will judge the Harlot of Babylon by giving their
"power" to the Beast for one prophetic hour.
the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the
whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her
flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath put in their hearts to
fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast,
until the words of God shall be fulfilled." (Revelation 17:16-17)
When the ten horns
are first mentioned in verse 12 as ten kings, the angel says they
have received no kingdom as yet. Is the the ten horns' kingdom
"given" to the Beast because the Ten Commandments on the two
tables of stone are found
by the Beast? Thus would they receive a kingdom at last.
