Mystery Babylon the Mother of Whores, will dwell in and control spiritually, both the false Christ and the false prophet. They will represent the greatest deception the world has ever seen, even surpassing that of the Great Whore (2 Thes 2:8-12; Rev 13:11-14).
Mark 13:22 For false Christs and a false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
The correct interpretation of the averse above is a false Christ and a false prophet shall rise.
This is in reference to the last days, a time of great deception unlike any other when Mystery Babylon is revealed.
It is during this Great Tribulation that is for a period of three and a half years, that a great and final battle will be waged for the eternal destiny of the souls of mankind.
When Mystery Babylon is revealed, Satan will introduce to the world his false Christ, and false prophet of deception. This is a representation of The Unholy Trinity, Satan the Beast and the false prophet.
This demonically inspired Beast will change the laws of God, and will demand to be worshiped as god. Also note the period of time given unto the beast, it is three and one half years, which represents the time of the Great tribulation.
When the great whore system is exposed and taken out of the way, Christianity will also suffer tremendously, at the hands of the fourth Beast system.
The great whore has a desire for absolute world domination, but it will not come to fruition.
When Mystery Babylon is revealed, the great whores reign of terror will soon come to an abrupt and violent end.
Satan will no longer operate through the Great Whore system secretly. He will declare himself to be the god of this world, and through the Beast demand to be worshiped as such.
Only seven kings fully reign with the Beast for the entire three and one half years of his kingdom, at which time the Two witnesses will confirm the covenant of Christ (Rev 13:15).
These seven kings, will give their kingdom and power unto the Beast and are a part of the fourth and final evil kingdom on earth, before Christ’s second coming. (Rev 17:17; Dan 7:7-8; 7:23-24).
The Beast will make war with the Saints and he overcomes them, he also has power over all tribes, tongues and nations (Rev 13:7-8). The only ones he will not have power over, are those who are Born Again through the Holy Spirit.
The fact that there are saints alive during this time known as The Great Tribulation, proves that the Rapture or Gathering of the Saints unto Christ, has not yet happened.
Also we notice that the Beast does not have power over all peoples. The all that he does have control over represents all of a certain type. Those that worship the Beast, are the ones not sealed by Christ.
Babylon is synonymous with confusion, and Jerusalem is known as the city of confusion (Isa 24:10).
The Great Whore has taken by force and stolen that which is not rightfully hers, believing she is invincible, but this will soon change (Deut 28:13, 15, 25, 28, 44, 48, 63).
When Mystery Babylon is revealed, the Great Whore will be destroyed by the true master of deception. It will be easy for Satan to expose the great carnage that the Great Whore system has produced, which he created. Through lying signs and wonders Satan will convince the world that he is their long awaited messiah.
When Mystery Babylon is revealed, the Beast will expose for all to see the great carnage and deception that the following groups produced:
Only the true followers of Christ will endure faithfully until the end.
Isaiah 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:
Many claim to know God, but as a result of the false teachers they surround themselves with, they are generally unwilling or unable in most cases to think for themselves. They would rather listen to men that claim a god given right to have authority over them and the gospel.
2 Tim 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables
That time is now! Sound doctrine is almost unheard of in these last days; however the fables are indeed plentiful.
Mark 7:6-7 He answered and said unto them, Well hath Esaias prophesied of you hypocrites, as it is written, This people honoureth me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
This phenomenon of following the doctrines of men has also become the guiding force unto darkness, that dominates much of christianity.
Col 2:8-9 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
2 Thess 2:9-12 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Christianity in large part has also become just another false religion. When the doctrines and teachings of men supersede the true message, which is the Good News of the Gospel of Christ, what is left is simply deception.
False Christianity and all other religions, feebly attempt through various works to obtain righteousness. This is a feat that is impossible on our own; through Christ we are made righteous, and it is His truth that sets us free (John 8:32; Rom 5:21; 1 Peter 2:24).
1 Cor 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
We can allow the spirit of Gods truth to take up residence with in us, and come out of darkness (John 12:46).
1 Cor 3:17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy,which temple ye are.
Or we can be deceived into thinking that the spirit within us is light, when in actuality it is darkness (John 1:5; Luke 11:35).
2 Cor 11:3-4 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
Many religious people believe they are obeying god, but are in fact just obeying the spirit of the god of this world (Eph 2:2; 5:1-11; Col 3:1-14).
As a result of loving the pleasures of this world more than God, these create a god for themselves based on whatever their evil desires are.
Here is a link to the series that exposes the False Christian teachers and there many strange doctrines. False Teachers – link
By denying the power of the one and only True God, these unstable souls are ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of truth (1 Cor 2:11-14; Eph 2:2-10).
Many in the Christian faith, as it were, know of Jesus, but they do not have a personal relationship with the Creator of all Things.
They are justified, so they think, by the laws and commandments of men. They blindly trust that their teachers are men of God, and the path that is laid out for them through these men is the right one.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may know the will of God (Romans 12:2).
Christianity should never have become just another religion. It is not at all about what we can do for ourselves, but what Christ has done for us on the cross. Without a transformational change to exhibit this change, we do not even have a true knowledge of Him.
Christianity involves a walk with Christ wherein we receive His Holy Spirit. It is through the Spirit that we can be saved, and have the testimony of Christ written in our hearts and minds (Rev 6:9; 12:11; 12:17; Heb 10:16).
