And the woman was arayed in purple & skarlet, and gilded with golde, and precious stones, and pearles, and had a cup of gold in her hand, full of abominations, and filthines of her fornication. And in her forehead was a name written, A mysterie, that great Babylon, that mother of whoredomes, and abominations of the earth. And I sawe ye woman drunken with the blood of Saintes, and with the blood of the Martyrs of Iesvs: and when I sawe her, I wondred with great marueile. -Rev 17:4-6 Geneva

Geneva Bible Commentary:

That harlot, the spiritual Babylon, which is Rome. She is described by her attire, profession, and deeds. In attire most glorious, triumphant, most rich, and most gorgeous. In profession the nourisher of all, in this verse and teaching her mysteries to all, (Rev 17:5) setting forth all things most magnificently: but indeed fatally besetting miserable men with her cup, and brings upon them a deadly giddiness.

Matthew Henry:

Rome clearly appears to be meant in this chapter. Pagan Rome subdued and ruled with military power, not by art and flatteries. She left the nations in general to their ancient usages and worship. But it is well known that by crafty and politic management, with all kinds of deceit of unrighteousness, papal Rome has obtained and kept her rule over kings and nations. Here were allurements of worldly honour and riches, pomp and pride, suited to sensual and worldly minds. Prosperity, pomp, and splendour, feed the pride and lusts of the human heart, but are no security against the Divine vengeance. The golden cup represents the allurements, and delusions, by which this mystical Babylon has obtained and kept her influence, and seduced others to join her abominations. She is named, from her infamous practices, a mother of harlots; training them up to idolatry and all sorts of wickedness. She filled herself with the blood of the saints and martyrs of Jesus. She intoxicated herself with it; and it was so pleasant to her, that she never was satisfied. We cannot but wonder at the oceans of Christian blood shed by men called Christians; yet when we consider these prophecies, these awful deeds testify to the truth of the gospel. And let all beware of a splendid, gainful, or fashionable religion. Let us avoid the mysteries of iniquity, and study diligently the great mystery of godliness, that we may learn humility and gratitude from the example of Christ. The more we seek to resemble him, the less we shall be liable to be deceived by antichrist.

 John Wesley: 

 And on her forehead a name written – Whereas the saints have the name of God and the Lamb on their foreheads. Mystery – This very word was inscribed on the front of the Pope’s mitre, till some of the Reformers took public notice of it. Babylon the great – Benedict XIII., in his proclamation of the jubilee, A.D. 1725, explains this sufficiently. His words are, “To this holy city, famous for the memory of so many holy martyrs, run with religious alacrity. Hasten to the place which the Lord hath chose. Ascend to this new Jerusalem, whence the law of the Lord and the light of evangelical truth hath flowed forth into all nations, from the very first beginning of the church: the city most rightfully called ‘The Palace,’ placed for the pride of all ages, the city of the Lord, the Sion of the Holy One of Israel. This catholic and apostolical Roman church is the head of the world, the mother of all believers, the faithful interpreter of God and mistress of all churches.”

But God somewhat varies the style. The mother of harlots – The parent, ringleader, patroness, and nourisher of many daughters, that losely copy after her. And abominations – Of every kind, spiritual and fleshly. Of the earth – In all lands. In this respect she is indeed catholic or universal.

    Someone needs to be reading this.

    The reason that men of God of the past knew these things and we dont is? It’s not that the great whore has risen to the level of evangelical christianity, but that evangelical christianity has fallen into apostasy and slipped down nearly to the level of rome. It’s easier to see eye to eye now that we are there and the gap has been bridged a bit. The spirit of this age cries unity, but it is a lying spirit in the mouth of lying christendom. True unity is calling catholics to repent, come out from among rome and be separate – holy unto the Lord. Then we can be unified in the truth. True love rejoices in the truth, false love (whoredom) rejoices in the abominations poured from the golden cup of mystery babylon.

    True love and unity is in Christ. If you are my true brother or sister then we are unified in Christ and I love you deeply. If you say you are my true brother or sister but are drinking from the cup of mystery babylon than I call you to repentance. I call you to repent before the Lord and we will have fellowship in truth rather than false unity in a lie.

    You must have some standard right? If a man came into your fellowship, pulled a small wooden statue of a bearded man from his pocket with the name’ jesus’ inscribed on it – and prayed to it, would you be unified with that man in “christ”. Would it not be an abomination and would not you, yourself, be strengthening the man in his damnation if you did not reprove him? What if that man told you his ancestors had a long history of murdering millions of christians who refused to bow down and pray to his statue (don’t worry though, he has decided to take a more seeker friendly approach now that he cannot legally get away with that).

    If you have fellowship with roman catholics (I am talking about purposefuly joining with them as supposed mutual brothers and sisters in Christ) you are in just as much error, dishonor Christ, and are a helper in their damnation. None of these things are becoming of a true saint.

    But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler–not even to eat with such a one.. -1Cor 5:11 ESV

    What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.” -2Cor 6:16-18 ESV

    After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was made bright with his glory. And he called out with a mighty voice, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! She has become a dwelling place for demons, a haunt for every unclean spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable beast. For all nations have drunk the wine of the passion of her sexual immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have grown rich from the power of her luxurious living.” Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues; for her sins are heaped high as heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. – Rev 18:1-5 ESV

      Out of the abundance of your heart does your mouth speak dear soul. The bride of Jesus is lovely. The drunken whore imposter is what you are describing. Does religion really satisfy you friend? Do you work for holy cross or just attend there?

      John 3:6-10 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things?
