DECEMBER 23 READING…REVELATION 17
This chapter reveals to us the end times apostate church. She is described as a harlot who has influence over the whole world. She has sold herself to the kings of the world and they have used her like a cheap prostitute. She has made the world drunk with her loose ways, false teachings, and seductive power. This harlot is riding on the beast(the Antichrist)…she has power given to her by the beast, he is who props her up and empowers her. She is rich and adorned in all fine linen and precious stones. She is carrying a golden cup, but it is not the Lord’s cup…this one is filled with abominations and filthiness. Can you see this is where today’s church is headed…teaching heresy, condoning what God condemns, even celebrating abominable sexual perversion, and the killing of the unborn?
The identity of this one world church is clear, she is the mother of harlots…that is she is not only a harlot herself, but she has produced many harlots. She is a persecutor of the genuine saints of God…she has torture and killed true followers of Christ in the name of her religion and false god. She is given power by Antichrist as she is used to make war with the saints of God. She has a worldwide influence for a period of time. Once the Antichrist and the kings of the world have used her up they will cast her aside like the cheap harlot that she is. The institutional church, with its ungodly ecumenical movement, it’s compromise of God’s Word, and it’s outright rejection of Jesus as Savior is becoming the harlot she must be in the last days.
Please share your thoughts from today’s reading.
