Martin Luther had this image made. I’m putting in my upcoming Revelation book.
In the middle we see the angel showing the vision to John the Apostle. And it shows a woman upon many waters, fulfilling Revelation 17:1.
“And there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters.”
She is sitting on a beast with seven heads and ten horns, fulfilling Revelation 17:3.
“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns.”
This is the same beast as Revelation 13:1, which has seven heads and ten horns, and describes the antichrist beast Pope of Rome, who rose up out of a sea of people of the ten kingdoms of the fallen Roman Empire.
“And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.”
She is decked with gold and stones and pearls, and has the Pope’s mitre on her head, which is proclaiming that the harlot church of Rome is led by the Pope. And she holds the golden cup of the Babylonian Eucharist ceremony, which is an abomination. This fulfills Revelation 17:4.
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication.”
There are kings bowing before her, fulfilling Revelation 17:12-13.
“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. These have one mind, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast.”
She is called a harlot, “Mystery, Babylon the Great,’ because her Eucharist ceremony symbolically carries out the Babylonian Mystery Religion of sun and moon god worship, which produces their incarnate christ-child, Tammuz.
She’s not the Ekklesia of Messiah, she’s the church of the enemy, that teaches a false gospel of works through the sacraments, and that Mary is the intercessor to the Father. Those teaches deny Messiah.
I don’t share these things because I hate the Pope or Catholics. I teach them so that Catholics can see the truth, so that they follow Scripture, not the teachings of man. And so that they have a covenant relationship with the Father through the Son alone.
Messiah commanded His people to ‘come out of her, lest you partake in her plagues.’
