Babylon the Great  

Revelation 17:5 and on her forehead a name was written, a  mystery, “ BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”

Let us trace its history.

Deut. 28:25   “ The LORD shall cause you to be defeated before your enemies; you will go out one way against them, but you will flee seven ways before them, and you will be an example of terror to all the kingdoms of the earth.

Rev. 17:1    Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Come here, I will show you  the judgment of the  great harlot who  sits on many waters, 

That harlot is Semiramis who begot Tammuz from the dead Nimrod who became a god.  

Gen. 10:8 Now Cush became the father of Nimrod; he  became a mighty one on the earth.  9 He was a mighty hunter before the LORD; therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the LORD.”

Ex. 34:15 otherwise you might make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land and they would play the harlot with their gods and sacrifice to their gods, and someone  might invite you  to eat of his sacrifice,  

Rev 17:2 with whom  the kings of the earth committed acts of immorality, and  those who dwell on the earth were  made drunk with the wine of her immorality.”  

Is. 57:3 “But come here, you sons of a sorceress, 
          Offspring of an adulterer and a prostitute. 
4 “Against whom do you jest? 
         Against whom do you open wide your mouth 
         And stick out your tongue? 
         Are you not children of  rebellion, 
         Offspring of deceit,

Rev 17:3 And  he carried me away   in the Spirit  into a wilderness; and I saw a woman sitting on a  scarlet beast, full of  blasphemous names, having  seven heads and ten horns.  
Rev 17:4 The woman  was clothed in purple and scarlet, and  adorned with gold and precious  stones and pearls, having in her hand  a gold cup full of abominations and of the unclean things of her immorality,

Gen. 11:2 It came about as they journeyed east, that they found a plain in the land  of Shinar and  settled there. 

3 They said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and burn them thoroughly.” And they used brick for stone, and they used  tar for mortar.  4 They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top  will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves  a name, otherwise we  will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.”  5  The LORD came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built.  6 The LORD said, “Behold, they are one people, and they all have the same language. And this is what they began to do, and now nothing which they purpose to do will be  impossible for them.  7 “Come,  let Us go down and there  confuse their  language, so that they will not understand one another’s  speech.”  8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from there over the face of the whole earth; and they stopped building the city.  9 Therefore its name was called  Babel, because there the LORD confused the  language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth. 

Dan. 4:30 “The king  reflected and said, ‘Is this not Babylon the  great, which I myself have built as a royal  residence by the might of my power and for the glory of my majesty?’

5 and on her forehead a name was written, a  mystery, “ BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.”


That is Babylon the Great.
