Poisoned Wine Deceived the End Time Great Whore that Sits on a Sea of People

Who Is this End Time Great Whore?     

An angel spiritually carried John into the wilderness to show him the judgment of the great whore that “sitteth upon many waters” (Revelation 17:1). He lifted the veil that covered the woman’s face. On her forehead was written, “MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Revelation 17:5). John “marveled” (Revelation 17:9) at this beautiful mysterious woman, “arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls,” riding a scarlet colored beast with “seven heads and ten horns” (Revelation 17:3, 4). Who is this great whore and why is she to be judged?

The angle gave John some clues that identify the great whore that was clothed in purple and scarlet and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls. “The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. . . . And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth” (Revelation 17:9, 18). These clues identify the great whore as the Roman Catholic Church, governed by the pope (False Prophet).

The precious stones and pearls adorning the great whore (Revelation 17:6) signify the wealth of the Roman Catholic Church. Rome, the headquarters of the Vatican and the Roman Catholic Church is that great city known as the City of Seven Hills. The great whore is destined to rule over the kings and nations of the earth for a short space. (Revelation 17:10)

Rome herself claims to rule over the kings of the earth. . . . The Roman Catholic Church believes that popes have the right to remove kings and emperors. . . . Scarlet (red) is the color worn by the cardinals. Non-cardinal arch bishops and bishops wear purple. (The Criterion, July 1, 1988.) The cardinals, archbishops and bishops make up the hierarchy of the Roman church.” (Irvin Baxter, Understanding the End Time, p 95.)

Another angel said the great whore and the kings of the earth committed fornication (Revelation 18:3). John remembered Ezekiel’s words condemning whoredom. “And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon. . . . Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst commit whoredom with them” (Ezekiel 16:16, 17). The great whore decked with gold and precious stones will be burned to death (Revelation 18:8) because she drank “of the wine of the wrath of God” (Revelation 14:9-10).

The Biblical Great Whore Sits on Many Waters

The great whore sits upon many waters. The angel said, “The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues” (Revelation 17:1, 15). Sometimes the Bible uses the words “sea” or “water” when referring to people. Isaiah, in reference to the Assyrian king and his people, prophesied that the “waters of the river, strong and many . . . shall come up over all his channels, and go over all his banks” (Isaiah 8:7). The water portrays the Assyrian king and his people as overflowing and possessing the land of Judah. The sea of people where the whore sits signifies the United Nations, a union of all the nations and peoples on earth. As portrayed by the great whore that sits on and holds the power studded reigns of the scarlet colored beast, the False Prophet will be supreme ruler of the end time Holy Roman Empire for approximately 3 ½ years (Poisoned Wine p 97).

Poisoned Wine Deceived the Great Whore

Satan deceived the great whore at the Council of Nicea  with the Poisoned Wine of the Trinity.  He deluded her with an ineffable mystery that stole Jesus’ identity. The idol he created as the second person in the Godhead would intoxicate all the future generations of the earth. The great whore became espoused to Satan at the Council of Nicea when her Father (Pope) presented her (Roman Catholic Church) for his approval and acceptance.

The great whore is Satan’s bride, Mystery, Babylon the Great, the mother of harlots. In 800 AD, the great whore joined Satan and his earthly kingdom to form the Holy Roman Empire,  a religious and political union that propagated many harlots (Trinitarian daughter churches) during the Reformation. Satan will mimic God who dwells in Jesus’ flesh by manifesting himself in Antichrist’s flesh. God’s bride (Isaiah 54:5, Jeremiah 3:14) will carry the name and Spirit of Jesus (Acts 2:38, 39; Romans 6:3-5), but members of Satan’s bride will carry the number 666 (Revelation 13:18) on their foreheads or on the backs of their hands (Revelation 14:9, 10) to identify their relationship with the great whore.

John pondered the golden cup carried by the great whore. This vessel was spilling over with the “abomination and filthiness of her fornication” (Revelation 17:4). John was stricken with grief by “the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus” (Revelation 18:24; 20:4). The great whore was drunk “with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus” (Revelation 17:6).

John thought of James, his brother, who was martyred by Herod. He remembered James and Jude, Jesus’ brothers and Simon who all suffered martyrdom. His beloved Peter, and Andrew, Philip, and Bartholomew (first flayed alive) had all been crucified. About this same time, Paul was beheaded and Matthew was slain. He knew he was the only disciple still alive. Then he remembered the fear in Emperor Domitian’s eyes when he dipped him into boiling oil (ca. 81-96) and he lived. Without a doubt John still mourned his brother and his friends and feared for his own life. (Poisoned Wine, C J Davidson, p 75)

John remembered the angel’s words declaring the Antichrist’s ten-nation governing body would burn the great whore with fire (Revelation 17:16). He remembered Babylon (code name for Rome), the great city he had seen destroyed (Revelation 16:19). The great whore called mother of harlots will be utterly burned by fire because she drank of wine of the wrath of God  by worshipping Jesus as the second person in the Godhead.
