Guest John Daniel Author of "Grand Design Exposed" presenting and laying the foundation from ancient history to present history
THE MYSTERY RELIGION of Babylon has been symbolically described in the last book of the Bible as a woman "arrayed in purple and scarlet color, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: and upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH" (Rev. 17:1-6). When the Bible uses symbolic language, a "woman" can symbolize a church. The true church, for example, is likened to a bride, a chaste virgin, a woman without spot or blemish (Eph. 5:27: Rev. 19:7,8). But here, in striking contrast, an unclean woman, a defiled woman, a harlot, is pictured. If it is here correct to apply this symbolism to a church system, it is clear that only a defiled and Fallen church could be meant! In big capital letters, the Bible calls her "MYSTERY BABYLON.
It's good to talk.
