MYSTERY BABYLON THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS
by Tony Alamo
The Apostle John stated, “And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials [of the wrath of GOD, which is soon to be poured out onto the earth1], and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will show unto you the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters [the term “many waters” is symbolic, meaning many nations; she will influence all of the peoples in the world]: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication [Symbolically, this means they have adopted her false doctrines. They have committed every abomination (filthy sin) on earth, and are responsible for all wars and murders, including the murders of CHRIST, the prophets, and the saints.]” (Revelation 17:1-2).
In a vision, the prophet Daniel saw this monster. He saw this beast, this world government, as “dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts [kingdoms] that were before it; and it had ten horns” (Daniel 7:7). Nothing like this government has ever happened before worldwide.
Some of the people in Mystery Babylon (the Vatican, the Roman Catholic Church) really love the LORD. These are the ignorant underlings. However, the hierarchy is wicked and evil beyond compare! They say that the evil they did in the past is in the past, but secretly, to this day, they have been murdering more people than ever before. They say they are against abortion, homosexuality, and pornography, but because they are the world government, they control the world government, and are the ones behind all the evil on earth.2 This is why GOD tells all of the innocent laity to “COME OUT OF HER [the whore], MY PEOPLE, that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues [the wrath of GOD]” (Revelation 18:4).3 “And the inhabitants of the earth [the whole earth] have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication [all sins. She is political and falsely religious]” (Revelation 17:2).
Revelation 17:9 says, “And here is the mind which has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman [the Vatican, the false prophet, the great whore] sits.” If you email or call a travel agency and ask them for a ticket to the city of the seven mountains, they will sell you a ticket to Rome, Italy!
The Apostle John was shown “another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads [seven mountains of Rome] and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads [designating this dragon as the satanic ruler (beast) of the seven continents of the world]. And his tail drew the third part of the stars [symbolic of the disobedient evil angels. Revelation 1:20 tells that the stars are angels] of Heaven, and did cast them to the earth” (Revelation 12:3-4).4
Rome is called by GOD, not Babylon, but “Mystery Babylon the Great.”5 No other false church cult could ever be identified so clearly by the WORD of GOD as this one (the Vatican) mentioned in Revelation 17:3-9: So the angel carried John “in the SPIRIT [of GOD] into the wilderness: and I [John] saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast [the Roman false prophetess and political cult sat on the color scarlet of the cult cardinals, the scarlet beast being the world government headed by the Vatican], full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads [the seven mountains of Rome] and ten horns [the ten European nations, which for a short time join her, then burn her (Revelation 17:16)].
“[And here are the colors of the cult.] And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls [while her followers are living in poverty and squalor], having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations [which are the very worst of sins] 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.
“And I [John] saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of JESUS: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration. [The deception of the devil is so strong that even the Apostle John was swept into admiration of the vision of the devil’s cult, with its pomp, rituals, music, fancy robes, gold, pearls, riches, etc.] And the angel said unto me, Wherefore did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman [the false prophetess], and of the beast that carries her [it is the world government which obeys her commands. Her power is from the great red dragon, the devil (Revelation 13:4)], which has the seven heads [the seven mountains of Rome] and ten horns [the ten European nations].
“The [revived] beast that you saw was [at one time, Rome was a world empire], and is not [Rome fell]; and shall [revive] ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition [Rome, by the power of the spirit of Satan, the devil, rises again into a world government disguised as a church, and is far beyond anything anyone would imagine to be sinful6]: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder [Satan is the great deceiver.7 Even for a moment, the great Apostle John was deceived by Satan. All deception vanishes when you know CHRIST, WHO IS THE WORD OF GOD, in the King James Version Bible.8 They wonder], whose names were not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.
“And [again,] here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth.” The dragon (Satan, the devil) gave her this seat and (satanic) power to deceive the whole world (Revelation 13:2, 4). All of this is happening right now! Repent of your sins. Get your initial salvation by first saying this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
You've just completed the first step in a series of five steps which are necessary to receive salvation. Your second step is to deny yourself and take up your cross daily and follow JESUS for the purpose of mortifying your flesh, that is, for putting to death your own will, your soulful self, and the world with all of its lusts. All these must be baptized into the death of CHRIST.
Step three is your resurrection from the satanic life of Adam unto the sinless life of CHRIST. Step four is your ascension into a position of authority to reign for God with Christ on earth, and the fifth step is to reign for GOD in CHRIST on earth to the end for the purpose of bringing about the kingdom of Heaven on earth. You must learn the WORD of GOD, submit yourselves one to another, and do what the WORD says so that the church and the world may see evidence of your submission to GOD’S WORD, HIS order, and HIS authority in and by you.
Praise the LORD. May GOD bless and reward you abundantly.
Yours in the wonderful name of JESUS,
Pastor Tony Alamo
