Who Is The Great Whore & The Beast She Will Ride
Over the next few weeks, I plan on discussing a few Biblical prophecies that get very little mention. The first one will be on the great whore and the beast she will ride during the tribulation period.
"And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication. So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns." Revelation 17:1-3
This particular passage is seldom mentioned in Bible prophecy circles, but I
see these two biblical end-time figures, the beast and the great whore, as the
global hierarchy of the last days.
At this point we are about three to four years into the tribulation period. This is the scenario that I see for religious and political Babylon. Future political Babylon is the United States (the great whore). The United Religions is the religious side of the empire. Both will rule together as a wealthy and politically powerful partnership. The United Religions will rule from Rome (probably today's Catholic church) and the United States will rule the world through the United Nations as it does today. Somewhere around the beginning of the tribulation period, I believe the Antichrist will become the head of the European Union. He will be a powerful European leader but will at this time be lorded over by the United States. For the first three and a half years the United States (Mystery Babylon/great whore) will control the Antichrist and his ten-nation confederacy.
At around the middle of the tribulation period, after Satan is defeated and removed from heaven, he will enter the Antichrist. This will start the beginning of the end for the U.S. and the U.R. For Satan would not be ruled over by God, and will not tolerate being ruled over by man either. God, at this time, will use the Antichrist and his kingdom to exact judgment upon this wicked nation.
ďAnd 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.Ē (Revelation 17:16, 17)
The Antichrist and his kingdom will turn on the United States, and whatever allies it may have, and launch an all out nuclear attack. The destruction from the U.S. counter attack is not mentioned, but Iím sure there will be casualties. Not only are the United States and its allies (if any) defeated, the destruction is so dreadful that the land is no longer fit for use or to live on. (Revelation 18:19)
The defeat is so swift and decisive it will leave the rest of the world terrified and shocked. For this was the greatest nation on the face of the earth and in one hour they were completely destroyed. Kings, dignitaries, and businessmen are all left wondering what will happen next as they scramble to recoup loses and position themselves for what may happen with this dramatic change of power.
