And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.Revelation 18:4
What is she or her?God wants His people to escape from this evil system and the punishments it is bringing on itself. This call to come out of her echoes earlier prophetic warnings by Isaiah (52:11) and Jeremiah (51:45).
Paul expands on this theme to apply to all Christians of all ages: “Come out from among them and be separate says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you” (2 Corinthians 6:17).
God’s people must not compromise with sin and temptation, even when we must live in “the world.” As Jesus prayed before His crucifixion, “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world” (John 17:15-16).
But the time is coming when God’s people will be literally called out of this Babylonish system. For more about these end-time events leading to the return of Jesus Christ, see “End-Time Prophecy.”
MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH” (Revelation 17:3, 5).
To understand this Babylon, we must first understand the symbolic language being used in the book of Revelation. What is represented by a “woman,” a “beast,” “seven heads and ten horns,” and “Babylon the Great”?
There have been different ideas and opinions about this Babylon, in large part because men have read their own interpretations into these symbols. This usually results in false conclusions.
What does a woman symbolize in the Bible?
It is important to understand that when the Bible uses symbolic language, the Bible interprets its symbols for us. We do not have to guess at the meaning.
For example, when a woman is used symbolically in Scripture, she represents a church—a group of people. Paul uses the symbol of “a chaste virgin” for the Church that will be presented to Christ (2 Corinthians 11:2), and Christ refers to His bride in Revelation as a wife or woman (Revelation 19:7).
This immoral woman, called Babylon the Great, is an apostate church that has been responsible for the martyrdom of many true followers of Jesus Christ.The woman in Revelation 17 is a church, but not the Church that was established by Jesus Christ. Notice what this church does to those who obey God and follow Jesus Christ: “And 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” (Revelation 17:6).
This immoral woman, called Babylon the Great, is an apostate church that has been responsible for the martyrdom of many true followers of Jesus Christ.
The identity of Mystery, Babylon the Great
The Bible identifies this woman clothed in purple and scarlet and sitting on a scarlet beast in the last verse of chapter 17, “And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth” (verse 18).
At the time John wrote this verse, and in the centuries that followed, the city that reigned over the kings of the earth was Rome. And the church associated with Rome is the Roman Catholic Church, which is headquartered in Vatican City in Rome.
I personally believe our medical.systems are a part of the babylonian system as well as the church. They end up being a church where people are going for healing. The doctor replaces the Priest and their practices replace what the Bible says to use for healing. What does the bible say is the biblical way of healing?
O LORD, you alone can heal me; you alone can save. My praises are for you alone! Jeremiah 17:14
I will give you back your health and heal your wounds, says the LORD . Jeremiah 30:17
Jesus called his twelve disciples to him and gave them authority to cast out evil spirits and to heal every kind of disease and illness. Matthew 10:1
We are to go to elders of the church not doctors replacing our elders. James 5:16
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Are we seeing any confession taking place going to a doctor? Or anointing with oil? It’s a system designed keeping you from being healed God’s way.
Ephesians 5:14″Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.” .
Pharmaceutical puts a slumbering spirit through its occultic power. When we come alive in Christ walking in his will and ways we come to life. Out of darkness and it’s systems.
Read the Bible it will breath life into your soul.
