Mystery Babylon




(Rev 17:5 KJV) 

And upon her forehead was a name written,
 MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.




(Rev 17:1 KJV)

  And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:
(Rev 17:3 KJV)

  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.


(Rev 17:15 KJV)

  And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.


Drunken with the blood of the saints
Become the habitation of devils
I sit a queen, and am no widow
Burn her with fire
Was clothed in fine linen
She made desolate
The voice of the bridegroom

(Ezek 36:33, 34 KJV)

  Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.

  And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.

Drunken with the Blood of the Saints

*
(Rev 17:6 KJV)

  And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.



(Rev 18:24 KJV) 

And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.






(Mat 23:35-37 KJV)

  That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar.

  Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation.

  O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!

Become the Habitation of Devils

(Rev 18:2 KJV)

  And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.














(Jer 7:32, 33 KJV)

  Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that it shall no more be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter: for they shall bury in Tophet, till there be no place.

  And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away.

(Jer 9:11 KJV)

  And I will make Jerusalem heaps, and a den of dragons; and I will make the cities of Judah desolate, without an inhabitant.

I Sit a Queen and am No Widow


(Rev 18:7 KJV)

  How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow.


(Jer 3:8 KJV)

  And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.

Make Her Desolate and Burn Her with Fire 


(Rev 18:8 KJV)

  Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.



(Rev 17:16 KJV)

  And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.
























(Mat 24:2 KJV)

  And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.


(Mat 22:1-3, 7, 10,11 KJV)

  And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,

  The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

  And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.


  But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

  So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

  And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

Was Clothed in Fine Linen


(Rev 18:16 KJV)

  And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!


















(Ezek 16:10,11, 13, 16 KJV)

  I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.

  I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck.


  Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper into a kingdom.

  And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.

She Made Desolate



(Rev 18:19 KJV)

  And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas, that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.



(Dan 9:27 KJV)

  And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The Voice of the Bridegroom


(Rev 18:21- 23 KJV)

  And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.

  And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of  whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee;

  And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.


(Jer 7:34 KJV)

  Then will I cause to cease from the cities of Judah, and from the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of mirth, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom, and the voice of the bride: for the land shall be desolate.
