The Harlot - Mother Of Abominations Of The Earth (MA07)

Rev 17:4-5 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead a name was written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

The Great Harlot is extremely rich and powerful and is filled to the brim with abominations. She is also called Mother of the Abominations of the Earth, who has drunk the blood of saints and martyrs.

2Pet 2:1 But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Lord who bought them, and bring on themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.

Destructive Heresies from US

Once saved always saved

Causes Christians to become worldly and living unholy lives. Heb 6:4-6 stated that all those who had lost their salvation cannot be saved again and with their names blotted out from the Book of Life (Rev 3:5, Rev 22:19)

Jesus coming is imminent

Causes Christians to be unlearned and easily deceived in the last days. Hal Lindsey's book 'the last planet earth' was the best seller in 1970, proclaiming the heresy that Jesus can come anytime. This heresy was strengthened by the 'Left Behind' series. Rapture can only occur after the Great Tribulation (Mat 24:29-31; Mark 13:24-27; Luke 21:12-28; 2Thess 2:1-11)

Witch-hunting for Sins of Old

Causes Christians to feel unsecure and condemned for their (unknown) sins before conversion were not forgiven (not confessed).

Christians - demon possessed

Causes Christians to doubt their salvation and ability to serve God. Every Christian is the temple of God and cannot be defiled by demonic or evil spirits, otherwise he has lost his salvation.  (1Cor 3:16-17, 1Cor 6:19-20)

Prosperity Gospel

Causes Christians to love money or Mammon, worldly, covetous, carnal, selfish, unloving, etc.

Luke 16:14-15  Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him. And He said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God."

Observing Jewish Feasts

Causing Christians to be cursed for not being able to completely obey the laws (no temple of God).

Gal 2:10,13  For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, " Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them."... Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"),

Homosexual Church Leaders

Destroyed faith of many Christians, and leading them to commit the sin leading to death, an abomination.

Lev 18:22  You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.

Rom 1:27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

Blaspheming His Name

Causes Christians to be deceived by believing in lies, heresies and false prophecies. These are from depraved covetous pastors, leaders, prophets and televangelists.

Rom 16:17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.

Touch not the Anointed

Causes Christians to accept even heresies and distorted truth.

Gal 1:8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.

Encourages leader to be carnal, worldly, covetous and heretic.

2Tim 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.

With all these so-called anointed false prophets and famous, rich and powerful servants of God (including televangelists mainly from US) teaching these destructive heresies to extremely large congregations and practicing these abominations, it is almost impossible that the elect will not be deceived.

Rev 7:6 I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
