Chapter Four: The Whore of Revelation
Do you believe this monster is simply a backslidden or
apostate church like many of our Christian leaders tell us, or is she
the whore of Revelation? Let's look at scripture and check it out
for ourselves. We find in chapter 17 of the Book of Revelation the
Bible says, "I will show unto thee the judgment of the great whore
that sitteth upon many waters:" And, of course, in scripture the
reference to many waters means multitudes of people. Today the
Vatican boasts almost one billion followers. What's that, almost a
quarter of the earth's population?
And it says, "With whom the kings of the earth have
committed fornication." If you look back in history you will see
that almost every king has had political, economic or religious ties
with the Vatican, starting with Constantine the Great, who was
actually the first pope, and presided over the first council.
Constantine was never saved. (That was another smokescreen.)
Most nations today have diplomatic representatives in the Vatican.
"And the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with
the wine of her fornication." We have just looked at the madness
of World War II and how it was set up by the Jesuits. And the
Bible goes on to say, "The woman was arrayed in purple and
scarlet." These are the official colors of the Vatican. "And decked
with gold and precious stones and pearls." Did you know the
Vatican is the wealthiest organization on the face of the earth?
Later in the book I'll go into this in more detail. The Bible goes on
to say, "And on her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY,
BABYLON THE GREAT." Where did Catholicism come from?
If you do a little research you'll find it came from the ancient
Babylonian mysteries, and you can trace it right back to Nimrod
and Semiramis. Only the names were changed to make it look like
a Christian organization.
"...Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become
the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul
spirit and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird."
"The Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the earth." Can I
name a few abominations that came from Rome? We have the
Nazi Party, which was staffed with Jesuits and high ranking
Catholics. And then we have the communist party, another
offshoot, or branch of the mother of harlots.
Listen to these names: Marx, Engels, Stalin, Lenin, Fidel
Castro. All were trained and guided by Jesuits. We are publishing
two new books that go into detail on this. So these are her babies.
Just a few of them, not to mention some of the spirit cults like
voodoo. In the voodoo creed they state that, along with their
religion of demon possession, they believe in "the holy Roman
The Bible goes on to say, "And I saw the woman drunken
with the blood of the saints." The Roman Catholic Institution
tortured, maimed and murdered 68 million people during the
Spanish Inquisition alone, and many of these were Bible-believing

Who would you say the whore of Revelation is? Is it
something that will come in the future, or are we stuck with it right
now? Beloved, it is obvious the whore of Revelation is the Roman
Catholic Institution, and God hates it! He wants His people to
come out of it so that His love can be manifested. God says, "If
you love me, keep my commandments." (John 14:15)
At the end of the Dark Ages, when the popes ruthlessly
controlled Europe, God raised up Christian men and women who
knew the Bible and loudly proclaimed that the deadly Roman
Catholic Institution was the whore of Revelation.
