Mystery Babylon the Great
Mystery Babylon the great, the mother of the great whore, represents confusion and idolatry. The word Babylon literally means confusion.
Through the Spirit of Christ, Mystery Babylon is not really a mystery, we can know of Satan’s devices and not be deceived by them.
Just as the Mystery of the Gospel of Christ is revealed by the Spirit, so too is the revelation of this Mystery Babylon system.
Without Satan, this Mystery Babylon phenomenon could not exist. The mystery of iniquity is the workings of Satan, blinding men from the truth of Christ. This iniquity will only intensify in the last days, known as The Great Tribulation.
The Mother of Harlots produces or orchestrates confusion idolatry and deceit. In Christ, we can have a sure hope of eternal life, but Satan who gives birth to all false religions only produces death and destruction.
Rev 17:3 So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.
Almost the entire focus of Revelation chapters 17 through 19, are on Mystery Babylon. Interestingly enough, only six verses in these chapters are devoted to the Great Whore, and in these six verses the following is revealed:
- John is told that the judgment of the Great Whore will be revealed to him (Rev 17:1).
- A brief description of the Great Whores sins are given, explaining why she is to be judged (Rev 17:2).
- The place she occupies is given (Rev17:1 &15).
- This judgment is indeed revealed to be at the hands of the ten kings that destroy her (Rev 17:16).
- The Lord God is righteous in His judgment of her (Rev 19:2).
Mystery Babylon The Great Will Destroy The Great Whore
Rev 19:2 For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great whore, which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
This Great Whore (that represents spiritual idolatry), occupies the minds of many people who subscribe to this belief system that have been indoctrinated by this spirit of deception.
The headquarters of her Spiritual deception if you will, is very well known if one has Spiritual eyes to see! The Whore occupies a place and represents a people group, that have corrupted others through great idolatry (Rev 17:15).
The vast majority of the world is already drunk from the deception grand illusions and idolatry that this Whore system has produced, at the hands of Mystery Babylon. Without Christ, and the key He offers that allows mankind to understand the Spiritual Mystery of the Kingdom of God, few will sober up and realize this last period of deception is terminal.
The ten kings will destroy the place and power of the Great Whore system. The Mother of Harlots, or Satan, will take over and occupy a certain well-known city!! The Beast and False Prophet, are the new representatives of this Mystery Babylon system, that most of the world will fall prey to.
The word mystery is used twenty-seven times in the New Testament.
- Twenty-two times it is used in reference to the mystery of the Gospel, the Mystery of Godliness or the secret things in Christ.
- The key to the mystery of Christ, and His Gospel, that can only be known through His Holy Spirit, is described in Eph 3:4-5.
- Twice it is used to describe Satan’s system, known as Mystery Babylon, and the city he desecrates (Rev 17:18; Rev 14:8; Rev 16:19; Rev 18:10; 16, 18,19, 21).
- The mystery of the blindness of Israel after the flesh is referred to in Rom 11:15.
- It is also used in reference to the mystery of iniquity (2 Thes 2:7). The identity of the architect of this “mystery of iniquity,” is only unknown to those that are blinded by him, as he is the god of this world (2 Cor 4:1-14).
Iniquity is the violation of the Law of Christ, and all who are offended by Him are workers of iniquity (Rom 8:2; 10:4; 1 John 3:4; Math 23:28; Math 13:41; 2 Cor 6:14).
Rev 17:5 And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
The architects or instigators of this idolatry, or spiritual deception (through Satan as the chess master behind the scenes), are referred to as a people, a multitude (or class of people), a nation and a tongue (or language). There are several clues within this verse to help the reader understand the identity of these waters.
