The Whore of Babylon's Coming Judgement in Revelation

Judgement of the Whore of Babylon, the Revelation, Bible Prophecy

The Whore’s Judgment

In the end times, the Great Whore sits upon the Beast-joined to his

Kingdom—and later the Antichrist and his federation of kings destroy her. 


They carry her off, leaving her naked and burned.  Her presence indicates political influence.  Her destruction by the Beast reveals that she exercises limited power over the Antichrist and his federation of kings.  Though present in the kingdom’s early stages, she does not remain long after the entity becomes powerful.  Her destruction occurs when the Antichrist claims to be god and demands worship of him alone.  His ideology diametrically opposes her precepts.  All religions threaten his imposed laws. 
        
Revelation 17 and Isaiah 47 describe the Great Whore's judgment by God.  In verse 6, the Scriptures describe her as "drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs."  Verse 7 describes the Beast "carrying her."  Initially the Bible pictures the woman sitting on the Beast—joined to his kingdom—which reveals that she has influence over the Beast.  Later they carry her, indicating that she grows into a burden, and in verses 16 and 17 the Bible tells us: "And the ten horns which you saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire.

The Whore's judgment comes from God.  Making her desolate and naked, eating her flesh, and burning her with fire indicate that violence will be committed against her—such as spoiling the treasures of her churches, taking possession of her land, burning her Bibles, religious literature, statues, religious paraphernalia, and buildings, and persecuting her followers so that the Antichrist alone can be the sole object of worship.

While many churches, mosques, synagogues and all other religious buildings will be destroyed,  the land will be taken over by the State and some of the buildings repurposed.  The valuables will be taken as booty.  This includes the riches that lie within the Vatican.  It is possible the Antichrist will take the 11 Trillion that rests in the museums valuables and sell them to collectors and museums around the world along with the Four billion dollar Sistine chapel. The Vatican Museum can also possibly get taken over by the Antichrist’s police state and not sold off but rather the 80 million euros per year that the museum brings from visitors will go the Antichrist’s government and his social welfare state.

Daniel 11:24 states:

He shall enter peaceably, even into the richest places of the province; and he shall do what his fathers have not done, nor his forefathers: he shall disperse among them the plunder, spoil, and riches; and he shall devise his plans against the strongholds, but only for a time.


While the Whore of Babylon initially has influence over the Beast's kingdom, she does not remain long after his government becomes powerful. 


The Whore’s destruction occurs when the Antichrist claims to be a god and demands worship of him alone.  All religions then become a threat to him, and he sets out to remove them from the face of the earth. 

In the past century many dictatorships arose and each of them eliminated freedom of religion and speech as the state and the dictator act as the objects of one’s sole dedication.   The Antichrist will limit these freedoms on a worldwide scale and the nations which do not willingly go along he will conquer.

Several Bible scholars teach that “the Whore” represents a one-world religion, which operates along with a one-world government.  These writers cite the ecumenical movement that embraced many religions and supported left wing revolutionary groups as the forecasted one world religion.  The movement endorsed liberation theology, which taught that Jesus was the first Marxist.  Liberation theology used the Scripture to prove that the Bible provided the basis for Communism.  The Catholic Church, one of the largest churches in the world, refused to join the Ecumenical Church.

Some expositors teach that the Antichrist heads the one world religion, which launches the False Prophet.  This author holds the view that the Whore of Babylon and the Beast operate separately and the Whore’s location, religious teachings and influence over the area of the Beast intertwines them. 

Revelation 17:7 states that the Beast “carries” the woman.  The verse uses bastazo, the Greek word for carries, which according to Strong’s Lexicon means:  1) to take up with the hands, 2) to take up in order to carry or bear, to put upon one's self (something) to be carried, a) to bear what is burdensome, 3) to bear, to carry, a) to carry on one's person, b) to sustain, i.e. uphold, support, 4) to bear away, carry off.

This woman clearly becomes a burden to these kings and the Scripture tells us “these shall hate the Whore.” Verse 17 explains that they give their allegiance to the Beast who deifies himself and establishes his own religion (Dan. 11:39).  

The Revelation specifies that the woman sits on the Beast because she shares the same location.   Her teachings influence the leaders and people of the land. 


Political Babylon’s Foretold Destruction

The book of Revelation foretells the destruction of Babylon.  The Scriptures refer to Babylon as a “she.” International trade characterizes her. God cites her as a deceiver of nations, and the means by which the merchants and great men of the earth trade (Revelation 18:7,23). The European Union’s political ideology derives from the Whore’s teachings.  The act of uniting Europe to prevent war among its nations finds its roots in religious conviction.  Nations will not wage war against one another while united in economic alliance.  If nations align with one another they will eliminate war and achieve peace.  The deception exists in the premise that worldwide democracy will ensure peace, justice, and human rights.  Revelation 18:11-15 lists twenty-seven exported goods combined with categories of products.  The 28th phrase lists “souls of men.” Verse 23 concludes with: “For by thy sorceries were all the nations deceived.”  The Scriptures teach that man is sinful, and because of his nature there will be no peace on earth until the second coming of Jesus Christ.

During Nebuchadnezzar’s reign, Jeremiah foretold Babylon’s judgment in the latter days.  Just as Nebuchadnezzar laid siege to Jerusalem and oppressed the Jews (Jeremiah 50:30), the Antichrist will do the same.  When the Antichrist treads down the nations, the nations become angry.  Jeremiah 51:7 states: Babylon was a golden cup in the Lord’s hand that made all the earth drunk: The nations drank her wine; therefore the nations are deranged.” Revelation 17:4 tells us that abominations and filthiness of fornication fill the gold cup in her hand.  The kings of the earth commit fornication with her and become drunk with the wine of her fornication. 

Revelation 18:3 adds that “the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”  The rest of the chapter predicts her destruction. The remaining passages refer to her as the hub for trade for the earth’s merchants.  Upon her destruction, these merchants mourn, for they can no longer trade with her.

After the Antichrist wreaks his havoc upon the earth, armies will go to fight against the European Union.  Jeremiah 50:41 states: “Behold, a people shall come from the North, and a great nation and many kings shall be raised up from the ends of the earth.” In the Bible, North always refers to the area of Russia. “A great nation” may be the US.  “At the noise of the taking of Babylon the earth trembles, and the cry is heard among the nations” (Jeremiah 50:46).  

God destroys political Babylon i.e. the final world empire.  As Hitler was the spark for World War II, when he invaded and conquered nations in Europe; the Antichrist’s swift and fast conquest will prompt powerful nations to wage war against him.  Daniel 11:40 states that “at the time of the end, the King of the South shall attack him: and the King of the North shall come against him like a whirlwind, with chariots, horsemen, and with many ships.”

When armies invade his land, the Antichrist enters into the attacking countries and defeats them.  He conquers Egypt and North Africa.  Hearing reports from the North and East, he goes forth with great fury to destroy. He ends up at a place prepared for him in Jerusalem (Daniel 11:42-45).  Israel and the Middle East become part of Antichrist’s conquered territory, according him the exact borders of the Roman Empire at the time of Christ.   Jeremiah 4:6-7 tells us:

Set up the standard toward Zion: take refuge! Do not delay!: For I will bring disaster from the North, and great destruction.  The lion has come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the nations is on his way; he has gone forth from his place to make your land desolate; your cities will be laid waste without inhabitant.”

The Antichrist’s armies, Russia, the Eastern nations, and the US surround Jerusalem.  The river Euphrates dries up, and prepares the way for the kings of the East.  God draws the world’s armies to the place called, in the Hebrew tongue: Armageddon (Rev.  16:12-16).
