It’s one of the hottest topics in Bible prophecy today. Where is Mystery Babylon? What if nobody has it right? Has the cipher ever been broken?
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 w***e that sitteth upon many waters.”
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.… Read More
Revelation 17:9, “And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.”
When Describing the Harlot and the Beast, the Context is Always Symbolic
The first reaction of most prophecy pundits is that the seven mountains upon which the woman sitteth are the seven hills of Rome.

There have been so many events the past 2-3 years in geopolitics. But the major players remain the major players. The Middle East continues to burn hot. And the threat of greater, large-scale conflicts continues to mount.
I haven’t written much in the past year or so about the threat of a Russian nuclear attack on the United States. But my view hasn’t changed since I wrote, The Next Great War in the Middle East in 2016. Donald Trump hasn’t altered the nature of the US. It is still the evil empire dominating third world countries, economics, and stimulating military … Read More
Yesterday, I participated in a debate with Brian Godawa on Parker J. Cole’s program, “Parker’s Comparables.” The show’s theme was to address the Harlot of Babylon, Revelation 17. But we spent a good deal of time on the matter of the audience of the book. Was it targeted just to those living in the first century?
