Revelation 17


Revelation 17 from The Chronological Gospels

Parenthetic Explanation of the Destruction of
Babylon the Great 
(17:1 – 18:24)

(Mystery Babylon Described)

17:1 One of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came out and spoke to me, saying, “Come with me, and I will show you the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters. 2The kings of the earth have committed adultery with her, and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her sexual immorality.” 3So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness, where I saw a woman sitting upon a scarlet-colored beast with seven heads and ten horns, which were covered with the name of blasphemy.{1} 4The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and was bedecked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls, and she had a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and the filthiness of her sexual immorality. 5Upon her forehead was written the name, “MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” 6I saw that the woman was drunk on the blood of the saints and the blood of the martyrs of Yeshua. When I saw her, I was struck with awe.”

{17:3.1} The name of blasphemy literally means the name of insult. The most probable candidate for the name of blasphemy is “allah hu akbar” – by direct inference “allah is greater” than YHVH  the Elohim of Israel. Islam is the new religion which now dominates most of the land mass once occupied by the Roman Empire. The name of insult is first cited in Revelation 13:1.

17:7 The angel questioned me, “Why do you marvel so? I will now tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her – the one that has seven heads and ten horns. 8The beast that you saw was before, and is not now, but will ascend out of the abyss and go into perdition. When they see the beast that was, and is not now, and yet is to come, those who dwell upon the earth shall be in awe – those whose names were not written in the scroll of life from the foundation of the world. 9Now here is the mind which has wisdom – the seven heads are seven mountains upon which the woman sits. 10There are seven kings – five are fallen, and one is now, and the other is yet to come – and when he does come, he will only reign for a short time. 11The beast that was, and is not now – he is the eighth, and is from the seven, and is the one who goes into perdition. 12The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet – but will receive authority as kings for just one hour with the beast. 13These kings will have one intention, and they will give their authority and strength to the beast.

14They will make war with the Lamb, but the Lamb shall overcome them because he is the indisputablemaster over all, and he is the King of kings. Those who stand with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.” 15Then the angel said to me, “The waters which you saw where the whore sits are people, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues. 16The ten horns which you saw upon the beast hate the whore, and will expose her nakedness and make her desolate. In the end they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire 17because YHVH has put in their hearts to fulfill his will and to agree to give their kingdom to the beast so that the Torah of YHVH will be fulfilled. 18The woman that you saw is the great city that reigns over the kings of the earth.
