The Identity of The Great Whore Is Revealed to us throughout the Word of God. The Great Whore and the Mother of all Whores, referred to as Mystery Babylon, although very different do have many similarities. In the first part of this series, we will look at the many verses describing Jerusalem and her whoredoms.

The Identity of the Great Whore is revealed to us By The Spirit of Truth

Ezek 16:30 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;

The word imperious seems to suggest that of domination, as in the great whore excels in the realm of spiritual idolatry.The Identity of the Great Whore is revealed through her many abominable acts of lewdness. She has hast opened her feet, and thus spread her legs to every one that passed by, and increases her whoredoms (Ezek 16:25).

Ezek 16:2-3 Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,  And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother an Hittite.

Jerusalem became confident in her own ways apart from God. The Identity of the Great Whore is revealed through her obsession with spiritual fornication, having relationships with many strange gods (Ezek 16:15).

Ezek 16:25 Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms.

Her beauty that was from the Lord, and her whoredoms had become greatly increased. The Great Whore had become detestable.

Manasseh reigned fifty five years in Jerusalem, he was the most wicked king that Judah would have (2 Chron 33:1).

2 Chron 33:6 And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

The Identity of the Great Whore is revealed through the demonic sacrifices of her children unto Satan. Here are some of the references to these heinous satanic crimes that the great whore has committed (2 Kings 16:3; 2 Kings 17:17; Lev 18:21; 2 Kings 21:1-6; 2 Chronicles 28:1-4; 2 Chronicles 33:1-7).

 Ezek 16:33-34 They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side for thy whoredom.  And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms, whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.

The Identity of the Great Whore is revealed in her rejection of Christ

The Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed

The Identity of the Great Whore is revealed in her rejection of Christ.

Jerusalem and the idolatrous house of Judah,  that was without the Lord God, was declared desolate (Math 23:37-38; Luke 13:35).This people and their religion were contrary to God and man (Lev 26:21-28; Rom 16:17; 1 Thes 2:15-16).

The Identity of the Great Whore is revealed through excelling in bringing her whoredoms to many others, thus perfecting the art of perversion and deceit that she once was a student of.

Borrowing heavily from what she had learned from her time in Egypt, and especially Babylon, the Great Whore would subvert many houses. The Identity of the Great Whore is revealed predominately by exposing the inhabitants of the earth that have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication (Rev 17:2 ).

To be made drunk with the wine of her fornication, refers to a state of Spiritual apathy or indifference. This spiritual stupor would cause many to become deaf and dumb to the true Gospel message; they would be easily deceived through her spiritual wickedness. In the second part of this series, The Great whore is not Mystery Babylon, we will take a detailed look at the damage this great Whore does.

Titus 1:10-11 For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision:  Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre’s sake.

The Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed by understanding the subversion of those who speak from their own hearts and deceive multitudes. These claim to be under the law, but really follow the wicked traditions of their fathers.

It is not through the flesh that one can claim to be of the house of Judah or Israel, the works of the old law and genealogy meant little after Christ. Those of the true tribe of Judah are made pure through Jesus, and seek not their own glory (Romans 2:28-29).

Prov 30:12 There is a generation that are pure in their own eyes, and yet is not washed from their filthiness.

Titus 1:14-16 Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth.  Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.  They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

The Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed by exposing those that have made their own law and commandments, and have turned many from the truth. They profess to know God, but their fruits prove this to be a lie. They are detestable in their idolatry, disobedient to the Law Of Christ, and are polluted in their own wisdom. They professed that they were wise, but in reality were but fools. The wisdom of all the world apart from God is foolishness (Rom 1:18-25; 1 Cor 3:19).

The Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed by understanding that the very minds and souls of this wicked people are defiled, and they are unable to even process the difference between what is pure and that which is pure evil (1 Tim 4:2; Isa 5:20; 1 Cor 3:19).

Luke 11:52 Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered

Those who make their own law, commandments and ordinances simply create false religions. They transgress or depart from God’s Law and have not the Spirit of Truth, and are therefore unable to come to the knowledge of the truth.

The Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed by pointing out the incredible destruction they bring upon themselves and their converts. Not only do they fail to enter into the kingdom, but they also prevent many others from entering in as well (Mark 7:13; Luke 11:52; Math 5:20; Math 15:2; John 3:5).

Ezek 16:35 Wherefore, O whore, hear the word of the LORD

Ezek 16:37 Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.

The Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed

The Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed by understanding that the Lord God will judge the Great Whore, though the very ones that she went a whoring with.

He will also judge them at the second death through the Law of Moses. For if they truly believed the words of Moses they would have also believed in Christ; Moses, the old law and the prophets all spoke of Christ (John 5:42-47; Rev 20:6).

 Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the (great) whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

Throughout her history, Jerusalem went through many sorrows and ruins. As Israel after the flesh was put away, so to was Jerusalem finally declared desolate by Christ (Mat 23:37-39).

The Sons of God are now the Temple of God, and Christ dwells within those that are Baptized in the Holy Spirit (2 Cor 6:16). Up until the end of this age, Desolations are determined on Jerusalem, especially during the reign of the Beast during the Great Tribulation (Dan 9:26-27; Isa 6:11; Jer 7:1-17; Jer 7:29-34; Jer 9:5-10; Jer 19:1-8; Joel 2:1-11).

Ezek 16:39 And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and leave thee naked and bare.

An assembly comes up against her and she is stoned, thrust through with swords and her houses are burnt up ( Ezek 16:40-41). Her self righteousness, pride and vanity will all be destroyed. Those that are exalted will be brought low (Isa 2:11-18).

Ezek 16:46-47 And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right hand, is Sodom and her daughters. Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways.

The Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed by looking at her sister, there were two women, and they were the daughters of one mother (Ezek 23:2). Samaria, was the capital of the northern kingdom of Israel.

Ezek 23:4 And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.

Jerusalem and Samaria both had the same mother, Samaria was Jerusalem’s older sister, and Sodom was the younger sister. Sodom was destroyed by fire. This fate was also in Jerusalem’s destiny, as she was more corrupt in her whoredoms than Samaria (Ezek 23:11).

During the final 3 1/2 years of Jerusalem’s existence, before Christ returns, she is spiritually compared to Sodom and Egypt (Rev 11:8).

But even before this time period where the Beast controls Jerusalem, there is nothing to suggest any type of relationship with the Lord God.

Isaiah 1:21-22 How is the faithful city become an harlot! it was full of judgment; righteousness lodged in it; but now murderers. Thy silver is become dross, thy wine mixed with water:

In Isaiah’s prophecy Jerusalem will be burned with fire and be desolate. Except for a remnant, it is likened unto Sodom and Gomorrah (Isa 1:7-9).

Jer 23:3 And I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; and they shall be fruitful and increase.

Jer 23:5-6 Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will raise unto David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.  In his days Judah shall be saved, and Israel shall dwell safely: and this is his name whereby he shall be called, THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.

The gathering of God’s people unto a Holy Jerusalem, through Christ, has yet to transpire.

Jer 23:14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness: they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.

Jerusalem is full of evil, deceit and iniquity.

The Lord will visit them for these great sins they commit (Jer 9:1-10).

Jerusalem shall be heaps and a dwelling place for dragons (Jer 9:11).

Babylon shall be heaps and a dwelling place for dragons…(Jer 51:37).

The cities of Judah will be desolate and a den of dragons (Jer 10:22).

Jer 23:15 Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.

Jer 9:14-16  But have walked after the imagination of their own heart, and after Baalim, which their fathers taught them:  Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I will feed them, even this people, with wormwood, and give them water of gall to drink.  I will scatter them also among the heathen, whom neither they nor their fathers have known: and I will send a sword after them, till I have consumed them.

Rev 16:4 And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

The third Vial judgment in the book of Revelations, refers to the plague called wormwood.

 Rev 8:10-11 And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;  And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.

The third Trumpet judgment in the book of Revelations, also refers to the plague called wormwood.

Ezek 22:2 Now, thou son of man, wilt thou judge, wilt thou judge the bloody city? yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominations.

Ezek 22:11-12 And one hath committed abomination with his neighbour’s wife; and another hath lewdly defiled his daughter in law; and another in thee hath humbled his sister, his father’s daughter. In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord GOD.

Here the great whore is not only involved in spiritual lewdness, but physical fornication and even incest.

Ezek 22:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye are all become dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem.

Ezek 22:21 Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof.

The words melted in Ezek 22:21, and desolate in Dan 9:27, are translated from the same greek word and have the same meaning.

Dan 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

The Identity Of The Great Whore Is RevealedThe Identity Of The Great Whore Is Revealed through observing how she interacts with those around her. Her leaders are like unto wolves that devour their prey. These people use oppression on the poor and those in need, and they are without compassion. They take what is not rightfully theirs, and with great cruelty trample down those around them unnecessarily. They are also quick to shed blood and love dishonest gain which is covetousness. They are guilty of breaking all of the commandments of Moses and worthy of God’s wrath (Ezek 22:24-30).

Is not Ezekiel chapter 22, a description of the modern day nation of Israel?

Ezek 22:31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

Pour out my indignation and consume with the fire of my wrath, may be a better translation of the message in Ezek 22:31. The words therefore, and have I, are added, and suggest that this wrath has already been performed.

In Ezekiel 22:19, it is the Lord, Jesus (Adonai) that gathers the dross or impure in the midst of Jerusalem. This word dross is only used eight times in the Old Testament. Two of those references are in Isaiah chapter one, (which describes a future event), and three times the word is used in Ezekiel chapter 22.
