THE WITCH AND THE MONSTER!        DFO 1192        14/5/81
--Part 24 of "The Garden of Eden!"--Revelation Chapter 17

       1. REVELATION 17: "AND THERE CAME ONE OF THE SEVEN ANGELS WHICH HAD THE SEVEN VIALS"--these angels of judgement & wrath--"and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto thee the judgement of the Great Whore that sitteth upon many waters!"--This great old Witch who hath bewitched the World, the false religion of the World!--"With whom the kings of the Earth have committed fornication, & the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication."--All governments cooperate with their religious system & the religious system helps them rule, & the major religious system of the World is MATERIALISM!--Mammon!--Babylon!--Confusion!
       2. "SO HE CARRIED ME AWAY IN THE SPIRIT INTO THE WILDERNESS: & I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast"--a great Red Monster--"full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads & ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple & scarlet colour, & decked with gold & precious stones & pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations & filthiness of her fornication."--Because she lives in luxury & fornication with the System. She's THE Religious System, not just one particular religion, but that which MOST men worship, which is Mammon, wealth, riches, money, the Commercial System!
       3. "AND UPON HER FOREHEAD WAS A NAME WRITTEN, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS & ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH." God here is using a term for this great wealthy materialistic Commercial System of the modern World, taking a term from ancient history, Babylon, a great idolatrous wicked, wealthy capital of the World at one time. But this is talking about the FINAL Babylon, the final manifestation of the god Mammon or wealth or riches or Materialism, which ALL men worship except those who love the Lord! Both Capitalists & Communists worship Materialism! The Capitalists worship that which they've already GOT; the Communists worship that which they hope to HAVE!
       4. "AND I SAW THE WOMAN DRUNKEN WITH THE BLOOD OF THE SAINTS, & WITH THE BLOOD OF THE MARTYRS OF JESUS: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration!" He doesn't mean he admired her in the sense we do today, but with great astonishment, with great wonder! And she was drunk, notice, with the blood of the Saints--she had martyred the people of Jesus! All false religions always martyr the followers of the TRUE Religion! All false religions have always crucified the Christs & slaughtered His followers!
       5. "AND THE ANGEL SAID UNTO ME, WHEREFORE DIDST THOU MARVEL? I will tell thee the mystery of the Woman, & of the Beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads & ten horns. The Beast that thou sawest was, & is not; & shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, & go into perdition." He comes out of Hell & he goes back into Hell! In other words, he is demonic, he is Devil-inspired! "And they that dwell on the Earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the World, when they behold the Beast that was, & is not, & yet is.
       6. "AND HERE IS THE MIND WHICH HATH WISDOM: THE SEVEN HEADS ARE SEVEN MOUNTAINS, ON WHICH THE WOMAN SITTETH." Now right away somebody's going to say, "Ah-ha! That means the seven mountains of the Palatine, the seven hills of Rome upon which sitteth the Catholic Church!" Many Protestants have long called this Woman, Babylon, the Catholic Church, however, it goes far beyond the Catholic Church! If the Catholic Church fits the picture, well all right, include her, but it literally means seven great kingdoms or World Empires, World powers, the same as the seven heads of this great red Monster or red Dragon, this Beast. Seven great World Empires, most of whom have already passed across the stage of history by the time this occurs, & at this time there is one last final great seventh World power of the Antichrist.
       7. "AND THERE ARE SEVEN KINGS: FIVE ARE FALLEN, AND ONE IS, AND THE OTHER IS NOT YET COME; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space." The angel says there are seven kings, seven World powers since the beginning of the first great World power of man, Egypt, & he says five are already fallen. Now to whom was he speaking? He was speaking to John the Apostle who was getting this Revelation on the Isle of Patmos about the year 106 A.D. during the Empire of Rome.
       8. SO THE ANGEL SAYS FIVE OF THESE KINGS OR THESE KINGDOMS OR THESE WORLD POWERS OR EMPIRES ARE ALREADY FALLEN. Is this true according to history? EGYPT--gone; ASSYRIA--fallen; BABYLON--fallen; MEDO-PERSIA--fallen; GREECE--fallen. Five already fallen, & he said, one IS--which was ROME at that time of John--& the OTHER is not yet come--that's the ANTICHRIST!
       9. THERE'S NOT BEEN A GREAT COMPLETELY WORLDWIDE EMPIRE SINCE THE DAYS OF ROME. There's been no World Empire that has ruled nearly all of the known civilized World since Rome. There have been great Chinese Empires, there have been the Arabian Empire & the Turkish Empire & the Spanish Empire & the Portuguese Empire & the British Empire & today we have the American Empire & the Russian Empire, but not one of them has ruled the whole World like the former Empires.
       10. BUT HE'S COMING; HE'S CALLED THE ANTICHRIST, THE SUPERMAN, the Super-Duper-Man, the Devil-man, Satan incarnate, the son of the Devil who is going to rule the whole World in a one-World government by a one-World dictatorship & proclaim himself to be God & insist that the whole World worship him! So HE'S "not yet come." 10th verse: "And when he cometh, he must continue a short space." He only rules the World for a very short time, only seven years, the last half of which is the Great Tribulation or Hell on Earth!
       11. "AND THE BEAST THAT WAS, AND IS NOT, EVEN HE IS THE EIGHTH, AND IS ONE OF THE SEVEN, AND GOETH INTO PERDITION." Very strange statement here, because you notice there's only one Beast, but there are seven heads of this Beast. So these seven World powers or World governments or World Empires are nothing more than simply seven manifestations of the same Beast from which these heads sprout out.--In other words, the Devil, the Antichrist.
       12. ALL THE WORLD'S EMPIRES ARE OF THE DEVIL AND HAVE COME OUT OF HIS BEAST, God picturing him as a Beast. And he says, the Beast himself, 11th verse, "was & is not, even he is the eighth, & is of the seven"--he's OF the seven--"and goeth into perdition." In other words, they're all one & the same. Only under the seventh head, that last revival of the Roman Empire, the Antichrist kingdom, the Beast himself rules & reigns, therefore really making himself the Eighth, both the Seventh & the Eighth Beast, in a sense.
       13. HE WAS, AND IS NOT--HE DISAPPEARS--BUT THEN HE REVIVES AGAIN. It says that he has a deadly wound unto death & that he's healed. Very deep mystery, I hope you can understand what we're talking about. He is both the Seventh & the Eighth, in other words. He is the Seventh, & it looks like he gets killed, but then he seems to be resurrected or brought back to life & therefore in that sense also he's the Eighth, & he's one of the seven, the seventh in fact, & he goeth into perdition--he goes to Hell where he deserves to be, because he's the son of the Devil, Satan himself.
       14. VERSE 12: "AND THE TEN HORNS WHICH THOU SAWEST ARE TEN KINGS, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the Beast." Now, when we were first talking about this Beast with seven heads, we said he had ten horns. He was pictured earlier here in this book. And as we pointed out then, the ten horns are completely & totally & utterly on the last head alone, on the Seventh head.
       15. THE ANTICHRIST KINGDOM IS MADE UP OF THESE TEN GREAT WORLD POWERS, ten kings or kingdoms, powers or whatever you want to call them--presidents, premiers, heads of parties, governments. They are the ten great leaders of the ten leading World powers in the last days of history in the time of the Antichrist, & he gets them to cooperate with him, to help put him in power. "They have received no kingdom as yet, but receive power as kings ONE HOUR with the Beast."
       16. IN OTHER WORDS, THESE KINGS ARE NOT YET KINGS. Their KINGDOMS may already be in existence, but the World leaders who surrender to this Antichrist Beast--this great Red Beast or Dragon--these World leaders who will surrender to him & make him the World Emperor, the World Dictator, & his One-World Government the World Government are not yet come. In fact, they will eventually proclaim him as God! They haven't yet actually appeared upon the scene, but they will come on the scene for the last hour of World history along with the Antichrist, this Beast.
       17. VERSE 13: "THESE HAVE ONE MIND, AND SHALL GIVE THEIR POWER & STRENGTH UNTO THE BEAST." These ten great World powers or kings or kingdoms or World leaders will GIVE their power to the Beast, they will SURRENDER their power voluntarily to the Beast, or the Antichrist, to proclaim him the King of the World, the ruler of all Empires, the World Dictator of the One-World Government! They will yield or give--he doesn't have to fight'm, he doesn't have to conquer'm--they recognise him as the Superman, the Devil-man, Satan incarnate in the flesh & they will voluntarily surrender their power & their kingdoms unto him & cooperate with him in order that he might control the whole World & become its great World Dictator, the Antichrist. So they have one mind & give their power & strength unto the Beast, 13th verse, & 14th: (THREE he OVERTHROWS--Dan.7:8,24.)
       18. "THESE SHALL MAKE WAR WITH THE LAMB."--This Lamb is capitalised signifying, of course, JESUS. "And the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords & King of kings: & they that are with Him"--US--"are called, & chosen, & faithful." The Antichrist forces even have enough nerve & are stupid & dumb enough to try to make war with the forces of Christ, to try to make war with Jesus Himself & His children, His followers, His Christians! But that's where they go too far & they're defeated, because He is the Lord of all lords, & He's the King of all kings, & therefore they are defeated, because we are also WITH Jesus. We are with Him, & called, chosen & faithful. The forces of Christ here confront the forces of the Antichrist finally in the Battle of ARMAGEDDON after the Tribulation & the Wrath of God.
       19. "AND HE SAITH UNTO ME, THE WATERS WHICH THOU SAWEST, WHERE THE WHORE SITTETH, ARE PEOPLES, & MULTITUDES, & NATIONS, & TONGUES." This is one religion that rules the whole Earth--Materialism, the worship of things. She's pictured as a beautiful woman adorned with precious jewels & gold & silver & living in luxury. This is man's ideal of the ultimate end in pleasure & luxury, a beautiful woman & riches! So she, Babylon, the Great Whore, is the great Witch that bewitches the whole Earth with her sorceries & her fornication to causes men everywhere to worship money & wealth & riches & material things of the flesh!
       20. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHETHER IT'S JUST, AS I SAY, A LITTLE THATCHED HUT & A WOODEN CANOE, IF YOU WORSHIP IT, IT'S A SIN! It doesn't matter if it's out in Squattersville, Shantytown or Hobo Haven, & it's nothing but a little cardboard hut made of cardboard packing boxes & tin & packing crates! If you worship it & love it & work hardest for it in order to preserve it & keep it above God Himself with no love for God nor your fellow man or neighbour, but just for your little shack, or your little grass shack on Kilikilique, Hawaii, as the old song goes: (Sings:) "I want to go back to my little grass shack on Kilikilique, Hawaii!"
       21. WELL THAT, YOU SEE, IS WHAT SOME PEOPLE WORSHIP! Even if they don't have a mansion, even if it's just a little cardboard shanty or a grass shack, if it has become your god, your idol, what you worship, what you'd rather have than anything in this World, it's your religion, it's your Whore, it's your Witch that has bewitched you with her craftiness & her demonic power to cause you to worship anything & everything except God, in a spirit of selfishness & greed & not love!--Not self-sacrifice, not love for the Lord, not love for the lost, but only love for yourself!
       22. THAT'S THE RELIGION OF THE WORLD, THAT'S WHAT MOST PEOPLE WORSHIP, THEMSELVES & THEIR OWN PERSONAL DESIRES & greed & selfishness & wants, the idols of their lives, even if it's a cardboard shanty in shanty-town! (Sings:) "It's only a shanty in old shanty-town, the roof is so slanty it touches the ground! Just a tumble-down shack by the old railroad track, like a millionaire's mansion, it's calling you back! You'd give up a palace if you were a king, for it is your palace, it's your everything! And there's a queen waiting there with a great golden crown"--this Whore, this Witch of Babylon--"in the shanty in old shanty-town!"
       23. SEE, WHEN IT'S YOUR EVERYTHING, YOU'D GIVE UP ANYTHING FOR IT, even if it's just a hut or a tin shanty or grass shack on an island, or a Cadillac or a wooden canoe, if it's what you'd rather have above all things on Earth & what you worship, what you love above God & others, then it's your idol, it's your god, it's your RELIGION! In the Capitalistic Commercial System of Babylon, its TEMPLES are BANKS! Its temples are office BUILDINGS to which its devotees & worshippers resort to worship eight hours a day from nine to five, five or six days a week!
       24. THAT IS THE RELIGION OF THE WORLD! THAT IS THE GREAT WHORE, BABYLON THE GREAT!--The Mystery of Iniquity, the Great Witch of all Witchcraft that has deceived almost all men upon the Earth into loving things, materials, this life! That is Babylon, that is the Great Whore that the kings of this Earth have made rich & who rides on their backs in power & controls them! It's their religion of lust for things & wealth & riches & power, & she rides on their necks & controls them! She rides on the back of the Beast!
       25. ALL SEVEN HEADS, ALL SEVEN WORLD POWERS, SHE CONTROLLED THEM ALL, BECAUSE THEY ALL WORSHIPPED HER! From Egypt to the Antichrist, all mankind worships her & loves her & fucks her & has fornication & intercourse with her & bestows upon her everything they've got & all their power & all! That's Babylon!Including today's Babylon, America, the Capitalist West & the Communist East! They all seek & lust after the same things & not God! They worship things & riches & power & money & wealth, & Materialism is the god & the religion of this Earth today! She, the great Whore of Babylon, the Witch that hath bewitched them, is the goddess of this World today! She's the one they worship & to whom they give their power & who rules over them!
       26. "AND THESE SHALL MAKE WAR WITH THE LAMB & THE LAMB SHALL OVERCOME THEM." They're going to make war with Jesus!--They've always made war with Jesus. They've always made war with the lovers of God & the lovers of Jesus & His Family of Love, His Children of God. They've always made war with Christians & persecuted them & killed them & tortured them & slaughtered them & massacred them & martyred them!--This false religion of the World, this lust for things, those who worship this World & the things that are therein!
       27. GOD SAYS TO US, "LOVE NOT THE WORLD, NOR THE THINGS THAT ARE IN THE WORLD, FOR HE THAT LOVETH THE WORLD IS AT ENMITY WITH GOD! Love not the World neither the things that are in the World!" (1Jn.2:15; Jam.4:4) For if you love this World & the things that are therein you are an enemy of God! Because those who love Jesus, "If any man would come after Me," Jesus said, "let him take up his cross & follow Me. Let him deny HIMSELF"--let him forsake ALL--"take up his CROSS & FOLLOW Me! For he that would save his life shall lose it, & he that would lose his life for My sake & the Gospel's shall save it." (Mt.16:24,25) So they've always made war on the Church of Jesus Christ & His followers, but the Lamb will overcome them, for He is the Lord of all lords, & the King of all kings! And they that are with Him--us & you who love Jesus--called, & chosen & faithful!--All saved Christians!
       28. VERSE 15: "AND HE SAITH UNTO ME, THE WATERS WHICH THOU SAWEST, WHERE THE WHORE SITTETH, ARE PEOPLES, MULTITUDES, TONGUES, NATIONS!"--The whole World! She rules over them all! "And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the Beast, these shall HATE the Whore, & shall make her desolate & naked, & eat her flesh, & burn her with fire!" Eventually they will TURN on her & destroy her & they will destroy the World Materialistic System & turn the World over to the Antichrist.
       29. THE ANTICHRIST WILL DESTROY THE WORLD CAPITALIST SYSTEM! He will destroy the World Communist System! He will destroy the World Materialistic System & demand worship of HIMSELF as God!--The Devil in the flesh, the Devil incarnate! He will say, "I am God! Stop worshipping all these things! Stop worshipping wealth & Capitalism or Communism or whatever, I am God! Stop worshipping this Harlot, this Whore of Materialism you've always worshipped! From now on, I'M God!" So he destroys her! He destroys Capitalism, Communism, Materialism, all of it, & demands self-worship of Satan in the flesh, the Devil in the flesh! He demands that all nations & persons worship Satan--the god of this World! So they destroy Babylon so they'll only worship him!
       30. "FOR GOD HATH PUT IN THEIR HEARTS TO FULFIL HIS WILL, & to agree, & give their kingdom unto the Beast, until the Words of God shall be fulfilled. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the Earth." What better typifies materialism today--wealth, power, greed, money, riches, things--than the cities of man, like New York, the great City System, the great World City System of man which are his monuments, his gods, his temples of worship!--His banks, his office buildings & all his religious temples, his worship to his god Mammon--Materialism, things, riches!
       31. PRAISE GOD FOR OUR TRUE GOD, JESUS, KING OF KINGS, who's coming soon to take us out of this materialistic Mammon mess!--Are you ready to go & leave it all behind? Will you be glad to depart when Jesus comes?--Are you ready to go with Jesus?
