'Beginning of Sorrows - 1st 3 Seals'
Rev 17:5 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 also called the Mother of Harlots, who will cause the whole world (including Christians) to commit fornication.
Rev 7:7 But the angel said to me, "Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
This harlot is carried by the beast (the Antichrist or the devil), so she is an antichrist deceiving Christians with lies and heresies.
Since 1963, Jeynes said there have been five negative developments in the nation's public schools:
• Academic achievement has plummeted, including SAT scores.
• Increased rate of out-of-wedlock births
• Increase in illegal drug use
• Increase in juvenile crime
• Deterioration of school behavior
I believe that US became the great Harlot when President Kennedy (1961-63) rejected Theocracy and threw the Bible and prayers out of public schools. These actions resulted to all types of fornications being committed.
James 4:4 Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
Whoever is a friend of this world (followers of worldly wisdoms, teachings and laws and not God's words) is a fornicator (adulterer).
James 3:15 This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.
Without the words of God, worldly wisdoms which are sensual and demonic replaced the biblical truth in running the State, resulting to US committing fornications by loving the world and the things therein.
Rev 17:1-2 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, "Come, I will show you the judgment of the great harlot who sits on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication."
US caused the kings of the earth to commit many fornications.
What are these fornications?
1. No Theocracy - Bible cannot be used to run the State
2. Bible is thrown out of all public school for it is not the word of God.
3. Prayers are banned in public schools for there is no God.
4. Women's Equality - rejecting man as the head of the home just as Christ is the head of the church.
5. Children's Rights - parents cannot chastise nor go against the wishes of the children, but our Lord wants parents to bring up their children to be holy and God fearing.
6. Divorces and remarriages - God warns us not to put asunder what He had joined together.
7. Living together out of wedlock.
8. Approval of Sodomy.
All heads of states are forced to accept these worldly wisdoms, otherwise no financial supports but sanctions by US and UN (under Human Rights). However, the inhabitants of the earth love these fornications and they are now drunk in wickedness.
1Pet 4:1-3 Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles— when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries.
